Reconstructionists Denounce the SCA
For Rejecting Its Membership Request
By Yitzhak Rabi
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Federation of Reconstructionist
Congregations and Havurot
(FRCH) recently sharply denounc-
ed the Synagogue Council of
America (SCA) following the
Council's decision to deny it
Warning that the denial can
harm "Jewish unity," Lillian
Kaplan, president of the FRCH,
charged in a statement issued
here last month that this rejection
"negates the very essence of its
The application of the FRCH for
membership in the SCA was re-
jected on March 11 after the
Union of Orthodox Jewish Con-
gregations exercised a unilateral
veto by voting against the admis-
sion. The other members of the
SCA which was founded in 1926
by the three major synagogue
movements of American Judaism
(Reform, Conservative and Or-
thodox) and their rabbinical af-
filiates supported the admission
of the Reconstructionists. The
SCA by-laws include the rule that
a nay vote by any of its six
members can veto any proposition
put before its Board.
The six members of the SCA
are: the Central Conference of
American Rabbis and Union of
American Hebrew Congregations
(Reform); the Union of Orthodox
Jewish Congregations and the
Rabbinical Council of America
(Orthodox); and the United
Synagogue of America and the
Rabbinical Assembly (Conser-
vative). The FRCH claims to be
the fourth major movement in
Noting that the SCA claims to
be "the umbrella for Jewish
religious life in America," Kaplan
said that the rejection "does not
weaken our movement, but it does
demean the Council's credentials
in terms of religious leadership."
FRCH executive director Rabbi
David Teutsch told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that, follow-
ing the veto, his organization held
discussions with leaders of the
Union of Orthodox Jewish Con-
gregations in an effort to change
their opposition to the
in the SCA, but to no avail. It was
after these efforts failed that the
FRCH issued a statement denoun-
cing the rejection.
Asked to explain the reasons for
voting against the admission of
the FRCH to the SCA, Rabbi Pin-
chas Stolper, executive vice presi-
dent of the Union of Orthodox
Jewish Congregations said in a
telephone interview with the JTA:
"In our view there were and are
three major divisions of the
American synagogue community
the Reform, Conservative and
Orthodox. We feel that by admit-
ting additional groups we open a
Pandora's Box which would
needlessly confuse the already
confused landscape. Our opposi-
tion to admitting the Reconstruc-
tionists is not directed at the
Reconstructionists per se, but to
the realization that there are
many sub-groups of the three divi-
sions and by tolerating the crea-
tion of further division we will on-
ly render a disservice."
According to Teutsch, the
FRCH last applied for member-
ship in the SCA more than 10
years ago and was rejected. "We
did not ask all these years to be
admitted because we knew we are
going to be rejected," Teutsch
told the JTA.
Teutsch said that the FRCH has
about 75,000 members with over
56 congregations around the
country. "Our congregations are
located in most of the largest
Jewish population centers of the
country and our members are
leaders in local Federations, bran-
ches of UJA, and other areas of
Jewish communal life out of all
proportion to their numbers,"
Teutsch said, adding:
"The Council's decision
demonstrates woefully insuffi-
cient commitment to pluralism on
the part of the Orthodox in the
American Jewish community."
The Jewish Reconstructionist
movement was founded 60 years
ago by Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan. Its
guiding principle is that Judaism
is an evolving religious civilization
a culture and a way of life as
well as a religious faith.

NEWTON, MASS. (JTA) -
Several hundred students, pro-
fessors and human rights experts
recently participated in an
academic conference on legal
responses to the Holocaust at
Boston College Law School
(BCLS) under the sponsorshp of
its Holocaust/Human Rights
Research Project and the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
The student-run Project served
as a resource center which
generates, coordinates and makes
available research by law students
on Holocaust-related law. It is the
only such project in North
America which studies legal issues
raised by the Holocaust and the
significance of court decisions for
future Holocaust-related and
human rights cases.
.The conference discussed
among other issues, Holocaust-
related trials in Europe (such as
the Barbie case) and North Ameir-
ca (the Demjanjuk extradition to
Israel), legal issues relating to
Holocaust denial, and inter-
naitonal legal response to the
Holocuast, including the Genocide

1986-87 Women's Division President
I want to thank you; the women of Women's Division for the
privilege of becoming your president, and besides promising you a
year filled with dedication to each other and to all the Jewish peo-
ple in the Diaspora, a year filled with new and innovative ways to
fulfill our campaign goals. I promise you a year filled with feeling
We are what we are
Because of where we've been
Because of what and whom we've seen
Because of our education, our perceptions, our peers.
Our past has brought us to the present
To be able to change
To be able to touch
To be able to grow
But always to remember that we are in control
Of our lives
Our choices and dreams.
That destiny doesn't happen
That futures don't await
But are built up to
That responsibility is taken
That lives grow.
We live in a community of young and old
Wherever we turn we find a chance
A chance to learn from one who has been there
Of Tzedukah ... of giving not only of money but time and
Attention ... of giving ourselves.
A chance to listen to the stories and tales of our heritage
A chance to remember our past
To learn from our past... to stand together in strength .
To follow well worn paths to new futures together.
A chance to mold our children's lives
A chance to channel their directions
To provide them with Jewish eductions of our traditions, our
leaders, our commitments.
Chance ... I said chance
But where and when does chance become responsibility and
Aren't we all here today because of our responsibility to each
other as people?
Each other as Jews?
We are here to build our future
To build a community of involved adults and children
Who know what we want and where we are going
To build our synagogues and day schools
To build our new Jewish Community Center
To build all of our agencies into viable strong structures
To build our lives as models for others to follow
To create visions for us to follow.
And so I share our commitment for all our tomorrows
Let us teach
Let us learn
Let us reach
Let us touch
Let us feel and dream together.

Even though the United States is a superpower with
"alliances" throughout the world, our country occasionally feels
lonely. All of America's European allies, not just Britain, should
have supported the air strike against Libya. And yet, neither
morality, friendship nor logic could persuade our friends to do so,
particularly France, who wouldn't even allow our flights in their
For the past 10 years, a dependence on Arab sources (such as
Libya) for oil has been cited as the explanation for the pro-Arab
positions of these countries and for their refusals to sell arms to
While giving into the threat of Arab oil blackmail might be
regarded as immoral, at least economic self interest legitimized
the act. This was the rationale France used when it released a
known PLO terrorist (one of the many "Abu's") Abu Daoud in
1977, desite West German and Israeli requests for his extradition.
But today, with a world oil glut and a relatively insignificant
trade between France and Libya, France can hardly use economic
self interest as a reason for refusing the U.S. request.
Neither can one discern a streak of pacifism in French foreign
policy. Granted, France has suffered a series of military defeats
dating back to Napolean nevertheless, she has shown great
willingness to intervene militarily when overseas interests were
at stake. Her use of force to prvent a Libyan takeover of Chad,
and the French air strike on the Beka's Valley following the bom-
bing of the French barracks in Beirut clearly demonstrate the
lack of compunction in the use of military means.
Surely, then, there was ample precedent for cooperating if not
participating in a retaliatory strike against terrorist centers in
Libya, and ample justification also in that both French citizens
and pocketbooks have been victims of Libyan-inspired terrorism.
This, despite France's efforts to remain free of violence by per-
mitting the movement of terrorists and weapons to transit
French soil. Also, since the United Kingdon had permitted one of
its bases to be used as a jumping off point for the U.S. raid,
France would not have been alone in facilitating the strike.
Perhaps the basic reason for France's infuriating refusal to per-
mit U.S. aircraft to overfly her airspace is an almost irrational im-
pulse to demonstrate independence from the United States
sometimes at any price. This desire to somehow regain her former
"grandeur" has been a thread running through French foreign
policy since World War II. This contrariness has often paid off
since "the squeaky wheel gets greased."
Examples of this spirit of going it alone and having France as
the center of the universe abound. Whether it was President
Charles DeGaulle's decision to pull French troops out of NATO in
1966, France's numerous flirtations with Moscow, or develop-
ment of its own nuclear "force de frappe" French actions have
driven American Secretaries of State to distraction over the
years. But now, with public opinion in our country so aroused as a
result of this latest rebuff, France might inevitably have to come
to the realization that she cannot continue to have it both ways.
With thousands of American soldiers buried on French soil,
France should not expect to continue to enjoy the benefits of U.S.
protection, tourism and trade without displaying some gratitude
as Britain did.
As for Italy and West Germany, the former enjoys a reputation
when it comes to bearing arms of "surrender first and ask ques-
tions later." The latter, with the strongest military force in
Europe, seems to have become enamored of the Arab world as
if to show that the new Germany need not feel any guilt over what
happened 40 years ago (since hardly anyone realized what was go-
ing on anyway.
Israeli support for the U.S. action against Libya has largely
been taken for granted. With real friends there is never a

The Siege7 -
Best Book About Israel
By M.J. Rosenberg;
Near East Report
It is said that one should not
speak in absolutes. There are, sup-
posedly, no "bests" and "worsts"
despite the predilection of some
magazine editors for naming the
best Chinese restaurant in town,
or the worst dry cleaners. Never-
theless, I will defy this probably
wise adage by stating that The
Siege by Conor Cruise O'Brien is
the single best book on Israel that
I've ever read.
The Siege (Simon and Schuster,
1986) is a most uncommon book by
a most uncommon author.
O'Brien, as his name indicates, is
an Irish Catholic. A writer and
editor, he first became interested
in Israel while serving as Ireland's
ambassador to the United Na-
tions. Because Ireland is fixed
alphabetically between Iraq and
Israel, O'Brien's seat in the
General Assembly was located
between his two Middle Eastern
counterparts. He became friendly
with the Israeli and, ultimately,
fascinated with the story of
The Siege tells that story in
strong, clean, hard-hitting prose.
For O'Brien, the re-establishment
of Israel and its survival in the
face of the siege waged against it
is "inherently perhaps the
greatest story of modern times."
O'Brien begins at the beginning,
with word portraits of Theodor
Herzl, Chaim Weizmann,
Vladimir Jabotinsky, David Ben-
Gurion, Menachem Begin, Abba
Eban and the other key figures
who helped create and preserve
the modern Jewish state. They
are not presented as heroes
sculpted in marble but as real peo-
ple some of whom disliked each
other intensely who somehow
managed to pull together in one
historic common effort.
O'Brien believes that Zionism is
one of history's great success
stories. Not only was the Jewish
state established, but that state
has helped reduce the anti-
Semitism that has dogged the
Jewish people for 1,900 years. In
O'Brien s view, it is the existence
of a strong Israel that helps pre-
vent attacks on Jews even in the
Diaspora. It is only in periods
when Israel appears weak that the
anti-Semites smelling blood
come out of their closet*.
O'Brien describes various
moments during the last 38 years
when Israel was weak, dangerous-
ly weak. His description of the
1956 Sinai campaign period
when Israel was threatened with
nuclear attack by Moscow while
the Eisenhower Administration
pointedly looked the other way
is particularly harrowing.
Equally disturbing is O'Brien's
description of the role he alleges
that Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger played during the
disastrous Yom Kippur War.
O'Brien believes and presents
supporting evidence that it was
Kissinger who encouraged Egyp-
tian President Anwar Sadat to
"heat up" the confrontation with
Israel in the fall of 1973. O'Brien
writes that Kissinger apparently
suggested to Sadat that "only by
going to war (could he) induce the
United States to put enough
pressure on Israel to secure the
return of his territories." Later,
once the war was under way
and going badly for Israel -
"Kissinger's policy" was to "stall
on the resupply of arms to Israel
so as to soften Israel up for the
ultimate peace negotiations." In
the end, writes O'Brien, Prime
Minister Golda Meir had to
"bypass" the unsupportive
Secretary of State and appeal
directly to President Nixon for the
arms necessary to stave off
defeat. It was Nixon who
"ordered the great airlift" that
helped save the Jewish state.
There is more to O'Brien's book,
much more. Even his discussion of
the Lebanon war and of the PLO's
role in international terror pro-
vides either new information or a
new twist on things the reader
His conclusion, while not op-
timistic, is realistic. O'Brien does
not expect any comprehensive
"solution" to the Middle East con-
flict. Like the Irish "troubles," it
gives every indication of being one
of those near-permanent interna-
tional problems. Israel cannot
give up the West Bank and
Jerusalem; the Arabs can accept
nothing less than a settlement
that would strip Israel of both,
and probably much more.
The answer for O'Brien then is
some sort of shared rule on the
West Bank. The Israeli military
presence would stay but the
Palestinian Arabs and Jordan
would take the lead in matters
relating to civilian life. In fact,
that is happening already. Peace!
real peace, will have to await the
day when the Arabs agree to end
the siege. That, says O'Brien,
won't happen soon.

Why Jews Should Support the Contras
Friday. May 9, 1986
30 NISAN 5746
As you know, the controversy
over providing aid to Contras
fighting the Sandinista regime in
Nicaragua has been swirling
around Capitol Hill for several
weeks now. I will support such
aid. The Sandinista regime has
perverted the promise of its own
revolution by turning its back on
democracy, forcing out of the
government all non-Marxist
elements while clamping down on
freedom of the press and freedom
of religion. It has served as a
haven for subversion against its
neighbors and aligned itself with
Cuba and the Soviet Union.
Almost everyone now concedes
that the Sandinista regime has
betrayed the people of Nicaragua.
Even The Washington Post has
recognized that fact in recent
editorials. So at least we have ar-
rived at a common diagnosis, if
not a common prescription. I will
support assitance to the Congras
not because I believe they are a
useful lever to prod the San-
dinistas to negotiate but because I
am persuaded that the Contra
leadership is now sensitive to our
concern for democracy in
I was heartened, in this regard,
to read the worlds of Kenneth J.
Bialkin, national chairman of the
Anti-Defamation League and
chairman of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations. The Con-
ference is comprised of the heads
of 40 Jewish organizations in the
U.S. and is the closest thing to a
centralized voice for American
Jewry. After listening to a policy
briefing ,,M Central America given
to the Conference by President
Reagan, Bialkin responded by say-
ing "I believe that the overwhelm-
ing sympathy and support of the
American Jewish community
rides with freedom, rides with the
defense of those who wish to fight
for their freedom and would sup-
port you in your interested and ob-
jective and principled effort in
that area." I agree.
Bialkin was careful to note that
he spoke only for himself and that
his statement "simply expressed
support for the President's stated
determination to support freedom
in Central America. It was not
meant to suggest support for aid
to the Contras." He added later,
however, that "I think my com-
ments were a general reflection of
the sentiments of the people in the
room. After I uttered these
words, I was interrupted by
The Anti-Defamation League,
which Bialkin heads, has been
outspoken in its opposition to San-
dinista policy, which was, and is,
in a word, anti-Semitic. The
synagogue in Managua was fire
bombed in 1978 by armed San-
dinistas while the congregation
was worshipping inside. When the
congregants tried to flee, the San-
dinistas ordered them to stay in
the burning building. By 1981
after two years of harassment!
most of the small Jewish com-
munity had fled Nicaragua in fear

without Jews, the anti-Semitism
continued. In July 1982 the

economic power, they control
political power as now happens in
the United States." The same
year Managua broke diplomatic
relations with Israel, using the

Soviet Jewry Update
Soviet Perception An Insulated View of Reality
By David Holzel
Special to the Federation
"On August 16,1985, the paper
Birobidzhaner Stern, published in
Yiddish in Birobidzhan, capital of
the Jewish Autonomous Region
... marked the publication of its
So the article begins. But where
is this Birobidzhan, which sounds
like a place in a fairy tale? And
what are we to make of the equal-
ly enigmatic Jewish Autonomous
People under the age of 40 may
never have heard of either place,
and those who are older may have
forgotten the "Jewish National
Homeland" which the Soviets set
up in the wilds of the Soviet far
east in 1934.
The Soviet Union certainly
hasn't forgotten, and they have
made available to American
Jewish publications several ar-
ticles of "Jewish interest," from
the files of the Novosti Press
Agency. The article entitled
"USSR's Jewish Autonomous
Region and its Newspaper,"
covers the most exotic subject.
"Scanning through the latest
issues of the paper," one
paragraph of the article begins,
"we see what topics the writers
who are workers and farmers
cover. For example, Semyon
Molotsky, a fitters' team leader
from the Far East Farm Machine
Building Plant, reports that the
combines with the trademark of
the Birobidzhan plant operate not
only on the fields of the USSR, but
also in Bulgaria, Hungary,
Uruguay and Cuba."
The article reads like promo-
tional material, lacking the con-
flict and investigative quality we
usually associate with journalism.
This travelogue style disappears
when the articles turn to the sub-
jects of Israel and Zionism. This is
how an article, titled "Jews in the
USSR Today," explains the
failure of Soviet Jews to make
aliya (immigrate to Israel):
"The true reasons .. are quite
obvious: the Israeli leaders' ag-
gressive policy which robs Israeli
citizens of security and creates a
permanent threat of war ... In
other words, the Israelis are con-
stantly haunted by fear, instabili-
ty and insecurity."
"It's for your information," ex-
plains Yuri Subbotin, Information
Officer at the Soviet embassy in
"We think you might be in-
terested in it." Subbotin con-
tinues, saying that these stories
are not distributed to the Jewish
Press in any systematic way, nor
are Jewish publications scanned
for Soviet-related stories.
Other embassy insiders,
however, indicate a much keener
Soviet interest in influencing
Jewish opinion. Soviet Jews, I was
told, live as other Soviet na-
tionalities do and, in fact, their
lives are quite decent.
While these sorts of statements
may be difficult for American
Jews to accept, the Soviets argue
their case in earnest. Their
understanding of the situation ap-
pears to stem from a specifically
Soviet view of reality; an in-
sulated perception viewing the
USSR as not merely a country,
but a world containing all
possibilities and potentialities.
It does not seem to matter if
"reality" is an anachronism:
Soviet Jews are quite free to
study their national language,
Yiddish. Yiddish, as a living
language, is fast disappearing as
the pre-World War II generation
dies out. Young Jews are more in-
terested in studying Hebrew, the
language of Jewish revival, and
not officially sanctioned.
Jews were long ago granted na-
tional self-determination; any
Jews is free to live in the Jewish
Autonomous region. Birobidzhan
is located nearly 4,000 miles from
Moscow. It is closer to Mongolia
than the Jewish population
centers of Russia. Pyongyang,
North Korea is a mere 800 miles
And population figures show
that the Jewish Autonomous
Region is hardly Jewish. 1961
estimates give the number of
Jews as 14,269, only 8.8 percent
of the total population. Yiddish
was the mother tongue of only 30
percent of those Jews.
A third Novosti article reminds
readers that the Soviets
remember the Holocaust:
"Many years have passed since
the massacre at Babi Yar, but the
names of the butchers .. who
have escaped retribution and now
live in the United States, Canada
and Western countries are
carefully kept in Soviet archives
in the hope that they ... will be
brought to a fair trial some day."
U.S. Rep. Larry Smith Urges Soviets
To Release 'Refusenik' Tarnopolsky
After having learned that his
adopted Soviet refusenik Yuri
Tarnopolsky, had been released
from prison recently, Con-
gressman Larry Smith (D-Florida)
has sent letters to Soviet Premier
Mikhail Gorbachev and Charge
d'Affairs Oleg Sokolov urging
them to grant Tarnopolsky and
his family permission to emigrate.
Tarnopolsky, a 51-year-old
organic chemist, was released
from Chita Labor camp after serv-
ing a three-year sentence for
slandering the Soviet State. He
had applied to emigrate to Israel
in 1976 and soon lost his profes-
sional standing in the scientific
community. In 1983 he was ar-
rested and sent to prison; his only
crime was to maintain a Jewish
identity in the Soviet Union. Since
his imprisonment, Tarnopolsky
has lost the sight in his right eye
and suffers from chronic heart
and gall bladder ailments that re-
quire skilled medical treatment, a
special diet, and medications.
NEW YORK (JTA) Soviet
Jewish refusenik Bexvalel
Shalolashvili was sentenced
recently to a one-year prison term
for "draft evasion" after a two-
day trial, the Student Struggle for
Soviet Jewry (SSSJ) reported
The 22-year old Tbilisi student,
arrested in March, asserted that
he had never received his draft
notice. The SSSJ said that the
KGB has told Shalolashvili's
brother, Yitxhak, that "the charge
was in retaliation for the latter's
efforts to prevent the official
destruction of the Ashkenazic
synagogue in Tbilisi."
The U.S. Congress was inform-
ed last February of reported plans
by the Soviet authorities to
bulldoze one of the few remaining
synagogues in the Soviet Union in
order to build a public square in its
place. The Tbilisi Jewish com-
munity is estimated at 20.000.
"Ten years have now passed
since the Tarnopolskys originally
applied for exit visas," wrote
Smith. "Now, Dr. Tarnopolsky
suffers from poor health and his
prison term has ended. It is ob-
vious that Dr. Tarnopolsky does
not pose a threat to the Soviet
Union. Soviet officials should
allow the Tarnopolskys to leave
the USSR in peace."
Smith has fasted in the name of
Yuri Tarnopolsky for the past
three years, and both the Florida
congressman and his wife have
sent a number of letters of sup-
port to the chemist and his wife
Meanwhile, Smith also has sent
letters to General Secretary Gor-
bachev and Charge d' Affairs
Sokolov to protest the planned
destruction of the Ashkenazic
synagogue in Tbilisi, the capital of
Soviet Georgia. The Congressman
learned of the Soviet plans to
destroy the synagogue after
receiving a number of letters from
Jewish leaders in South Florida.
"I have been informed that,
since the Ashkenazic synagogue
does not officially have the 20
worshippers (officially required
for churches or synagogues to
function), your government's of-
ficials plan to tear this historic
synagogue down and build a road
through the site," wrote Smith.
"I, therefore, respectfully request
your reconsideration of plans to
destroy the Tbilisi Ashkenazic
synagogue and to build road in
its place, especially since accor-
ding to Russian history Soviet
Jews greatly contributed to the
development of Soviet Georgia."

Interestingly, the article fails to
mention that the victims at Babi
Yar were Jews.
That so many Nazis found
refuge in the West is a fair
charge. But how do the Soviets
react to the revelation that a
leading Nazi war criminal is
residing in Syria, a key Soviet
He should be brought to trial in
the country in which he operated,
I was told. The Soviets are angry
that such a man should remain at
large. But, I was asked, isn't it
strange that in America, with
such a large Jewish population, so
many Nazis are allowed to live,
and live quite well?
"We are spreading information
about Soviet foreign policy and
our point of view on events," says
Yuri Subbotin. "It's part of a bi-
lateral agreement between the
U.S. and the Soviet Union."
Such are the ways of detente.
Or is that also an anachronism?

Short is a film about the few but

Holocaust to aid Jews.
It is a film about ordinary
human beings who could not close
their eyes. They had to help. They
opened doors, fed strangers, kept
secrets. They provided hiding
places for a day, a night, often
for weeks or months, sometimes
for years. They did these and a
thousand other ordinary things
during an extraordinary time.

U.S. Jews Joining
By Kevin Freeman
NEW YORK (JTA) "I am the
son of an undocumented alien,"
declared Rabbi Joseph Weizen-
baum to a small group of
reporters and sanctuary move-
ment activists during a recent
visit to the Stephen Wise Free
The Tucson, Ariz., rabbi,
sometimes referred to warmly as
the "mother of the movement,"
repeats his oft-told story of how
his father arrived in the United
States from Europe in 1913 as a
stowaway and was nearly
"The slaves who fled north in
our country and the Jews who at-
tempted to flee Nazi Germany
found no refuge," he continued.
"We believe that communities of
faith are now being called again to
obey G-d by providing sanctuary
to the refugees among us."
With the recent much-publicized
federal trial of the two Roman
Catholic priests, a nun, a
Presbyterian minister and church
lay workers accused of smuggling
aliens into the U.S., Weizenbaum
has begun to travel throughout
the East Coast as part of a na-
tional tour of rabbis active in the
The tour is sponsored by the
New Jewish Agenda. It includes
Rabbis Charles Feinberg of
Madison, Wisconsin and Judea
Miller of Rochester, New York.
Participating at the recent
meeting in New York were such
prominent New York rabbis as
Marshall Meyer of Congregation
B'nai Jeshurun, and Balfour
Brickner, the spiritual head of the
Stephen Wise Synagogue. Sup-
porters of providing sanctuary for
Central American refugees are
going directly against Reagan Ad-
ministration policy, as interpreted
through the 1980 Refugee Act. It
provides U.S. asylum to anyone
with a "well-founded fear of
persecution on account of race,
religion, nationality, membership
in a particular social group or
political opinion" if returned to
The Reagan Administration
maintains that the vast majority
of refugees who are entering the
country illegally from Central
America are not fleeing war or op-
pression but are seeking a better
life here and may be competing
with U.S. citizens for jobs.
Precise figures of the number of
Central American refugees in the
United States illegally are not
available, but experts place the
number at 500,000 to 600,000,
most of them Salvadorans and
According to the New Jewish
Agenda (NJA), less than three
percent of the Salvadorans who
have applied have been granted
asylum. By contrast, the NJA con-
tends that the figure for refugees
from Communist countries is 80
Sanctuary supporters are ask-
ing that Central American
refugees be granted "extended
voluntary departure" status,
which would give them the right
to live and work in the United
States until it is safe to return to
their homelands. The NJA noted
that similar status has been ex-
tended to refugees from many
countries, including Poland and
Until recently, the sanctuary
movement had been primarily bas-
ed in the Catholic Church and
among Protestant denominations,
but the organized Jewish com-
munity has become more involved
with the issue.
The principle of sanctuary for
Central American refugees has
been endorsed by the Union of
American Hebrew Congregations
(Reform), the Rabbinical
Assembly of America (Conser-
vative), the Reconstructionist
Rabbinical Assocation, and the
Central Conference of American
All together, about 270 Jewish,
Protestant and Catholic congrega-
tions around the country offer
sanctuary to Central Americans,
all in defiance of U.S. government
policy. Temple Emanu-El, Rabbi
Weizenbaum's synagogue, is one
of more than 20 Jewish congrega-
tions and organizations to offer
sanctuary and pledge support to
Central American refugees.
Albert Vorspan, senior vice
president of the Union of
American Hebrew Congregations
(UAHC) and director of its social
action committee, also addressed
the sanctuary issue at the Stephen
Wise Synagogue. He emphasized
that the Jewish community is
"behind us" in support of the
According to Vorspan, the
UAHC resolution in support of
sanctuary to Central American
refugees was overwhelmingly en-
dorsed by some 3,000 delegates
from across the country and
Canada at the UAHC's biennial
general assembly last November
in Los Angeles. "The people are
behind us and ready to take ac-
tion," he said.
The UAHC resolution called on
its 791 synagogues to furnish
material and financial aid to Cen-
tral American refugees and to join
legal efforts to overturn the Ad-
ministration's policy of deporting
them. The resolution urged its
member synagogues to do this
despite "serious legal
The 53-year-old Weizenbaum
was asked how he responds to
people who ask about the illegal
nature of the sanctuary move-
ment, risking arrest and possible
jail sentences for their activities.
He said he would ask those people
to pretend it is 1942 and it is a
Christian family seeking to give
sanctuary to a Jewish family dur-
ing the Holocaust.
"If you as a Jew can look me in
the eye and tell me you would ad-
vise the Christian family to not
give sanctuary to a Jewish family
during the war because it was il-
legal," he said, then he could not
argue with that person. But, he
added, "It is an ethical decision."
There will be a meeting for the
Alzheimer and Related Disease
Support Group for Caregivers on

Liberal Jews Willing to Work With Orthodox
TORONTO (JTA) Reform,
Liberal and Progressive Jews
from 20 countries, meeting here
all recently, sounded an over-
whelming and unprecedented will-
ingness to work out their dif-
ferences with Orthodox Jewry,
while agreeing also not to shy
away from their opposition to
many ultra-Orthodox practices.
The 23rd international meeting
of the World Union for Pro-
gressive Judaism, the umbrella
body of the world's 1.4 million
Reform, Progressive and Liberal
Jews, produced what organizers
are hailing as consensus on a
number of key issues.
Over 250 delegates from
Canada, the U.S., Great Britain,
Australia, New Zealand, France,
Holland, Switzerland, South
Africa, West Germany and other
nations, came out of the six-day
meeting with emotions ranging
from disappointment to euphoria.
"I'm upset at a number of
things," said one delegate from
Britain. "We didn't make our
language clear enough on many
issues. Basically, we agreed to
agree. I think our messages
should have been stronger."
"I'm very, very pleased with the
whole thing," noted a South
African delegate. "Coming
together like this and being able to
agree on so many things shows
the world how committed Pro-
gressives are to Judaism and to
Over the course of the meeting,
delegates discussed a number of
matters facing Reform Jewry to-
day: patrilineal descent, the
challenge of ultra-Orthodoxy, con-
versions, divorce, oppressed
Jewry in Syria and the Soviet
Union, aliya, women's issues,
apartheid and the arms race.
But the convention's focus was
how to live with those elements of
Orthodoxy that have discounted
or rejected outright the
Jewishness of Reform, and how to
challenge Orthodoxy's growing
control over day-to-day life in
"For us, unity has been the
most important thing," WUPJ ex-
ecutive director Rabbi Richard
Hirsch said after the final resolu-
tions were adopted unanimously.
"I'm very pleased with the
documents that say there's a new
openness on our part," said
Hirsch, who in his keynote ad-
dress earlier in the conference had
warned of "an unholy alliance" of
religious fanatics and political ex-
tremists whose "dark forces of
reaction" are threatening the
foundations of Judaism and
Regarding the Orthodox
challenge, Hirsch said what came
out of the conference is that
"We're saying to Orthodoxy, 'You
have problems with us. We have
problems with you. Let's not fight
this out in the press. Let's sit
down and discuss it.' They will
have to respect our right to
Indeed, it was noted several
times during the meetings that
the WUPJ is the only Jewish
religious movement in the world
that is headquartered in
Jerusalem. It represents a
substantial number of Jews and
has found allies in the Conser-
vative and Reconstructionist
movements, all of which makes it
hard to ignore. That's not to say
delegates were ready in the end to
kiss and make up with Orthodoxy.
"We shall continue to be
separated from (Orthodoxy) by
our respective attitudes toward
halacha. They hold the halacha as
the supreme divinely-bestowed
standard, subject to varying inter-
pretations, but unchangeable,"
Hirsch said. "We consider halacha
as a venerated guide, but subject
to modification and even rejection
if it does not conform to our
ultimate values and purposes"
Hirsch renewed a call for Con-
servative and Reform Jews in
Israel to merge to fight for their
"common struggle for a just socie-
ty in Israel."
Reform Jews do not have it easy
in Israel, the delegates were told,
mainly by Israeli delegates.
Once considered nothing short
of heretics, especially in Israel,
Reform Jews there today can
boast of two Reform Kibbutzim,
15 congregations and three or-
But their problems are many:
marriages and divorces perform-
ed by non-Orthodox rabbis are not
recognized, children of these mar-
riages are considered illegitimate
and conversions performed by
non-Orthodox rabbis are ruled in-
valid. All these add up to huge
problems when Reform Jews
But, delegates heard, they pre-
sent problems outside Israel as
well. In Perth, Australian
representatives noted, Jewish day
school are welcoming gentile
children but refuse to register
children of women converted by
But in the end, delegates voted
unanimously to support in princi-
ple a commission report drawn up
by Rabbi Gunther Plaut of Toron-
to, who received a standing ova-
tion for his work on the document.
After four drafts and 224
recommendations, Plant's report
underlined the fact that "respect
for Orthodox sensitivities and in-
stitutions must be a hallmark of
With some minor revisions and
changes in style still to come, the
report serves as a blue print for
Reform philosophy. Among its
stated objectives are:
* Because Reform Jews are
"deeply distressed that nearly
everywhere in the world a grow-
ing and dangerous polarization is
taking place in Jewish life," and
that not all Orthodox Jews are
against them, Reform must
achieve "a united front in a single,
strong Progressive movement
and that we seek allies in the
broad spectrum of Jewish life."
* Acknowledging the fact that
Reform has some friends in Or-
thodoxy and that Orthodoxy is not
* To seek out these allies in the
Conservative and Reconstruc-
tionist movements, whose inter-
pretations of halacha "often
resemble" those of Reform, and
with each local Reform or Pro-
gressive community urged to
develop its own patterns of
To recognize the strengths of
Reform, Progressive Judaism
"has saved uncounted numbers of
Jews for the Jewish people and
has prevented their assimilation
and disappearance." However,
Reform Jews have not adequately
used the movement's resources.
Increased involvement in the
WUPJ was urged.
* To push for increased aliya
among Progressives, who current-
ly account for leas than one per-
cent of religious immigrants to
* Finally, delegates reaffirmed
that they will remain "open and
accessible to all and appeal to
those who would hear us to
establish a firm foundation for
communal cooperation, for civil
discourse and mutual

The day preceding Yom Haatzmaut is observed in Israel as a
day of memorial. It is called Yom ha-Zik-ka-rohn, the Day of
Remembrance for all the men, women and children who have
given their lives for Israel's security.
This is my older brother Bezalel (who fell in battle),
curly brown hair, lovely deep brown eyes.
That's him, thin, tall and handsome,
smart, understanding and kind, who loved
his mother, his father and his brothers,
and most of all his land and his country
which he plowed, and which he sowed with
seed and reaped.
This is what I remember about him:
he gently helped me plant a sapling,
he helped me fix my costume for Purim,
he was always lively and full of joy.
Then when his time came to go to the army,
he made a big fuss about where to join and which unit.
After lots of arguing.
he did what he wanted and joined the paratroopers.
and liked it. He wrote home
and was on guard duty,
was on duty and kept writing,
and his letters were happy.
He hardly ever told us about his problems and was faithful
to his commanding officer and to his comrades
who were all so nice.
He saw our holy places with great joy and
prayed and remembered God
And never, never forgot his gun.
(from Childhood Under Fire)
We do not observe Yom ha-Zik-ka-rohn in the Diaspora. It is
Israel's national day of mourning. In Israel, on that day, air raid
sirens pierce the air and the entire country comes to a halt for a
few moments of total silence. Cars stop where they are on the
street, machines are shut down or go untended. No one in Israel
has been untouched by the losses of Israel's wars; no one is a
bystander. Fathers, brothers, sons, friends and neighbors are
remembers and mourned.

NEW YORK, N.Y. At this time of the year, Jews in Israel
and around the world commemorate the two most profoundly
significant events of 20th-century Jewish history, the Holocaust
and the establishment of the State of Israel. "Jewish Television
Magazine," the monthly program produced by the Council of
Jewish Federations and currently seen on 52 TV stations in the
U.S. and Canada, joins in that commemoration with its May pro-
gram which underscores the meaning of these historical events
Hollywood Cable airs JTM on Channel 14 (lo) on Mondays 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.
Jewish Television Magazine is sponsored by the Jewish Federa-
tion of South Broward.
The first segment focuses on the recent dramatic release of
Anatoly Shcharansky from the Soviet Union which epitomizes the
age-old longing of the Jewish people to return to their ancient
homeland. Even though, in theory, Israel exists to ensure that
Jews anywhere in the world will always have a homeland to which
they can return, there remain thousands of Jews in the Soviet
Union the "refuseniks" who are forbidden to emigrate to
Israel. The segment shows dramatically how Shcharansky never
gave up this fervent hope until he was finally released.
Scharansky's plight, and that of the thousands of other Jews
still trying to leave the Soviet Union, is a legacy of years of anti-
Semitism in Europe that culminated, not so long ago, in the Nazi
Era and the shocking slaughter of six million Jews. Every year at
this time, Jews commemorate the Holocaust with a special
remembrance day, "Yom Ha-Shoah." The second segment of the
program, which takes viewers to the permanent memorial to the
Holcoaust located in Jerusalem, Yad Va-Shem, offers an inside
view of this remarkable museum and archive that is visited by
thousands of students, teachers and tourists every year.
The third segment marks the celebration of Israel In-
dependence Day, "Yom Ha-Atzmaut," with a visit to a kibbutz in
Israel where a group of Canadian and American families have
chosen to begin new lives. These Jewish families, unlike those in
the Soviet Union, have the freedom to live wherever they choose,
and they have chosen to emigrate to Israel. Moreover, they have
chosen to settle on a kibbutz, emulating the values and ideals of
the original Jewish pioneers. As a way of celebrating Israel In-
dependence Day this year, the program takes viewers on a visit
with these idealistic individuals who embody the spirit of what
Israel is all about.
The host of "Jewish Television Magazine" is film and television
actor Stephen Macht, currently best known to viewers for his
featured role on "Cagney and Lacey."
The monthly programs which make up the "Jewish Television
Magazine" series are made available to local Jewish Federations
affiliated with the Council of Jewish Federations, which then ob-
tain air time on their local television stations.
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 fund raising and opera-
tions and engaging in joint planning and action on common pur-
poses dealing with local, regional and international needs.

Ethiopian Weddings Challenge
Israeli Rabbinate Authority
By Hugh Orgel
TEL AVIV (JTA) Fifteen
new immigrant Ethiopian couples
were wed at a public ceremony in
what was a major challenge to the
rabbinical authorities. The mar-
riage rites were performed by
Kessim the Ethiopian com-
munity's own religious leaders
who are not recognized by the
Israeli Rabbinate as halachic
The marriages are not expected
to be recognized by the Rabbinate
or registered by the Interior
Ministry, which is under Orthodox
control. The Absorption Ministry
announced, however, that it
would regard the couples as fami-
ly units, the same as any other
The two Chief Rabbis,
Mordechai Eliahu (Sephardic) and
Avraham Shapira (Ashkenazic)
are visiting the U.S. and could not
be reached for comment. The In-
terior Ministry declined to
The Israeli Rabbinate only
reluctantly recognized the Ethio-
pian olim as Jews. They have
refused to authorize marriages
among them unless the bride and
groom submit to ritual immersion,
a symbolic rite of conversion. The
Ethiopian community, devout
practitioners of Mosaic law,
regard this as a gratuitous insult.
It has been a bone of contention
since the immigration of some
10,000 Ethiopian Jews between
November, 1984 and January,
Local rabbis attempted to pre-
vent the weddings by threatening
to withdraw the kashrut cer-
tificates from the catering
establishment which had rented
its hall in the Yad Eliahu quarter
to the Ethiopian couples. The
caterers canceled their contract at
the last minute, even while guests
were arriving. But a neighboring
hall offered its premises, and the
ceremonies were conducted there.

Beginning with the 1986 elec-

stances of intolerant campaign
tactics such as appeals to religious
bigotry or partisan claims that
political candidacies or positions
are endorsed by G-d.
"We're continuing the fight
against the old intolerance, which
held that Catholics, Jews, or
members of other religious
minorities should be barred from
public office," declared John
Buchanan, chairman of People
For The American Way. "We're
also challenging the newer and
more sophisticated forms of in-
tolerance which claim divine en-
dorsement for political can-
didacies, platform planks, and
even Congressional legislation."
"Decent people can be equally
sincere in their religious faith, yet
disagree on political issues,"
Buchanan said. "While people can
and should bring their
deepest personal beliefs into
public life, we shouldn't claim to
speak for G-d when we enter the

In a videotaped statement

Chief Rabbis Criticize Reform,
By Yitzhak Rabi
NEW YORK (JTA) Israel's
two Chief Rabbis Ashkenazic
Chief Rabbi Avraham Shapira and
Sephardic Chief Rabbi Mordechai
Eliyahu said that the Reform
and Conservative movements in
America "are creating a new
Torah that can divide the Jewish
people. They must not change
halacha (Jewish religious law) and
must stop converting to Judaism
according to their new laws," the
two rabbis said.
In an interview with the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency at the Israel
Consulate here, Eliyahu said:
"The Jewish people is not a race,
it is a religion. The halacha sets
the rules of conversion. The
Reform and Conservative
(movements) want to create a new
Torah and they want us to
recognize their new religion. By
their new laws, they encourage
assimilation. They want to force
their opinion on us and change
Shapira added: "The Reform
and Conservative rabbis want to
convert goyim and make them
Jews against halacha. How can
you make a goy a Jew when part
of the Jewish people (the Or-
thodox) doesn't want him?
"The point of controversy is not
'Who is a Jew.' The struggle is
against the Reform and Conser-
vative way of conversion. We are
not against the four or five million
Reform and Conservative Jews in
America. They will always be
Jews. The point of contention are
the some 5,000 people whom the
Reform and Conservative con-
verted, not according to halacha."
Eliyahu, in a direct appeal to
Reform and Conservative Jews,
said: "We ask of you, don't divide
the Jewish people. Oar task is to
unite the nation, but you create a
new Torah that can divide the
The Chief Rabbis, who were in
New York on a five-day visit to at-
tend Yeshiva University's 100th
anniversary, were asked about the
escalation of tension between
secular and religious Jews in
"There are extremists on both
sides," Eliayahu replied. "In our
opinion, the majority of the Israeli
people are sympathetic to religion
and keep the traditions of the
Jewish people. But there are
groups who are creating the
escalation because they do not ac-
cept the fact that most of the peo-
ple favor religion."
Shapira noted that the Chief
Rabbinate has been working to
build bridges between religious
and secular Jews in Israel.
Escalation (of tension) is not
good for the people of Israel. We,
therefore, are organizing
meetings between secular and
religious groups to promote
understanding and friendly
Shapira contended that since
jne establishment of the State of
el there has been a "
regarding the Character of
the Jewish State. "The consensus
has been that, as a State, the
character of Israel will always re-
main Jewish, while inside one's
home every person can do as he
pleases." Now, however, Shapira
charged, "there are elements who
want to break the consensus." He
cited the opening of movie
theaters in Israeli cities and towns
on Friday nights as an example of
"breaking the consensus."
Turning to the issue of Jewish
education in the diaspora, the two
religious leaders warned that lack
of Jewish education is the major
factor in the growing assimilation
of the young Jewish generation.
