Mission Memories
1985 Young Leadership Mission
A wonderful thing happened
tonight, I felt from deep within
my soul, once again, who I am. I
am a Jewess; a Semite, a child of
God's chosen people. And I prais-
ed glory for my God given
The sounds could be heard from
a mile away. The music was
festive; the rhythm fast, the
crowds extensive. Only in Israel
could people be drawn by hun-
dreds to help celebrate Simchot
It was a familiar sight however.
One I had seen in my childhood
that I expelled as I did my
memory of spinach. How I hated
the purgent odors of the old, the
flavor of "Yiddishkite"; a feeling I
did not know even had a name.
The separation of men and women
had only been linked to boring
days when I had to wait outside
they snagogue for my parents,
which then seemed like endless
hours. Why tonight did it have
such meaning? Why tonight did I
get so lost and high in its spirit?
Because, not unlike Alex Haley's,
Roots, I was drawn back to more
than my past. I was swept away
into a purity of heart and mind; to
the essence of a beautiful people.
The most beautiful people in all of
Israel perhaps. A people who
could laugh and feel a passion in
spite of their personal and collec-
tive tragedies. The same small
faces I had seen earlier that day
on the walls of Yad Mordechai
were now the smiling, laughing,
gleeful faces of children sitting on
their fathers' shoulders, waving
flags in celebration of their joyful
How could a face that had
shwon such despair, fear and
anguish, exemplify love, joy and
happiness all in one day? How was
this possible? Because I found out
that life is for the living and
Jewish people have to live forever.
Now, for the first time in my life I
feel a bond to my tribe; a bond I
know I will protect and preserve
as my most valuable asset.
My personal mission will be to
instill that spirit which I had long
forgotten, into the souls of my
own children so thay may share
that special identity, that sense of
belonging and a way of life.
Yiddishkite my heritage ,
my people; my future.
The next Young Couples pro-
gram will be held on Sunday, July
20, at noon. The group will meet
at Tree Tops Park in Davie for a
"Family Day Picnic." On hand
will be a delicious barbeque lunch,
refreshments, games and prizes
for the entire family, not to men-
tion a whole lot of fun. The cost is
only $3.50 per adult (children
On Sept. 13, the Young Couples
will participate in the first annual
West Broward "SHALOM" event
at Raintree Inn, Pembroke Pines.
This program will feature a
delicious Israeli-styled buffet,
Israeli dancing, and the oppor-
tunity to hear about the exciting
events in store for the West
Broward Jewish community.
On Oct. 18 Young Couples will
have the opportunity to hear the
reknown Maxine Kronick in a pro-
gram entitled: "From the Shtetl
with Love."

r Media Exploiting
Pollard Spy Case
By Morris J. AmiUy
As expected, the Pollard spy case is giving Israel's usual critics
a field day. The Washington Post, probably the most consistently
anti-Israel daily newspaper in the country, continues to carry the
most negative aspects of this story, prominently, on its front
In Congress, John Conyers, Democrat of Michigan and one of
five congressmen identified as "most anti-Israel" in the House of
Representatives, has announced plans to begin an inquiry on
"Israeli espionage" in the United States in his subcommittee.
Fortunately, in spite of many years in Congress, Conyers is not
taken seriously by his Congressional peers but the media is ex-
pected to provide fulsome coverage.
Continued exploitation of an unfortunate but thankfully
isolated occurrence only serves the interests of our nation's most
implacable foes. The sooner the United States and Israel put the
Pollard case behind them, the better for both countries and Mid-
dle East peace. Until then, the American public will be subjected
to the distortions and exaggerations of those who regularly crawl
out of the woodwork whenever an opportunity presents itself.
The Senate vote to override the President's veto of a resolution
disapproving the latest arms sale to the Saudis was scrutinized
closely in Washington in order to see which senators would switch
their votes to give President Reagan the 34 Senate votes (out of
100) he needed.
While this particular sale was not viewed as being crucial to
Israel's security, there were valid arguments advanced against
the sale based on the Saudi's lack of support for U.S. objectives.
However, friends of Israel, despite the lack of organized lobbying,
clearly did not like seeing additional sophisticated U.S. weaponry
going to an avowed enemy of Israel.
The most notable switch enabling the sale to go through was
first term senator Chic Hecht of Nevada. Hecht, Jewish and an
ultra conservative Republican Senator, aggressively solicited sup-
port from pro-Israel activists for his original Senate race. Hecht's
early actions on Israel-related issues were disappointing to these
pro-Israel activists, and his relative ineffectiveness in the Senate
has been noted by a variety of Washington observers. They are
now reconsidering future support since Hecht more so than
many of his colleagues had reason not to switch.
Hecht, up for re-election in 1988, is considered vulnerable based
on his overall lackluster performance. Hecht, who explained his
switch in order to protect "the prestige of the Presidency," has
seriously undermined one of his natural bases of support.
The other Jewish Senator who voted with the Administration
(and one of only five Democrats to do so) was Ed Zorinsky of
Nebraska. Zorinsky was less of a surprise since he voted in favor
of the Saudi sale in the earlier vote, and is rarely supportive on
Israel-related issues. While Zorinsky has not actively sought sup-
port from Jewish sources in the past, he may now be assured that
there is an additional reason why it will not be forthcoming in the
Contributions to candidates running for Congress from the Na-
tional Association of Arab Americans' political action committee
are increasingly becoming embarrassments to recipients. One of
the latest contributions sent back to the NAAA was from the
Republican candidate for an open House seat in Maryland, Bobby
Neall. Neall, who is facing an uphill battle against popular
Democrat Tom McMillen, a former professional basektball star
and Rhodes Scholar, claimed he did not know that the NAAA sup-
ported PLO positions. Press reports pointed out, however, that
Neall attended a major NAAA event some months earlier and had
accepted contributions from individual NAAA board members.
But obviously Neall finally realized that association with PLO
backers would not be popular with the voters. On the whole, this
episode should make congressional candidates more selective in
.accepting help from all comers.
Reaction is Strong to Thatcher's Visit
By M.J. Rosenberg
Near East Report
Margaret Thatcher's visit to
Israel the first ever by a British
Prime Minister produced a
howl of outrage from the
government-controlled Saudi
press. The newspaper Ukaz (May
26) strongly attacked her for set-
ting foot in the "Zionist entity." It
reminded her that "Peres and
Begin were the ones who blew up
the King David Hotel when it was
the headquarters of the British
Mandate authroties." (Peres?) It
argued that instead of greeting
Israeli leaders she should be
"seeking the apprehension of all
these people ... as political
leaders of an entity historically
and falsely known to have been
erected despite the British Man-
date authorities."
The Ukaz editorial is another
demonstration that Saudi Arabia
remains as ever unreconciled
to Israel's existence. That
"Zionist entity" garbage should
have been thrown out years ago, if
only out of consideration for the
way that type of rhetoric plays
abroad. But the Saudis can't drop
it political considerations aside
because the quaint little phrase
expresses the way they feel.
There is no Israel. Just an entity.
As far as they are concerned,
Jews can create entities but not
There is one piece of truth in the
editorial. It argues that Israel
the entity was "erected despite
the British Mandate authorities."
That is correct. The British did
everything they could to thwart
the establishment of the Jewish
state. In their infamous White
Paper of 1939, they banned
Jewish immigration to Palestine
at the very moment when Euro-
pean Jews most needed a refuge.
Throughout the 1940s as Jews
were killed by the millions Bri-
tain kept the gates of Palestine
barred tight, in effect signing the
death sentences of those who
might have escaped if there was a
place to go.
The Saudi assertion that the
Jews defied the British in creating
Israel contradicts the more tradi-
tional and false Arab view
that Israel was created by British
and other colonialists as a gift for
the Jews. On the very day that
Ukaz was telling Thatcher that
the Jews defied Britain in
creating their state, Damascus
Radio was putting out the other
line. It reminded Thatcher that
"during its occupation of
Palestine from 1917 to 1948" Bri-
tain "brought in Zionist ter-
rorists, facilitated their emigra-
tion to Palestine, and enabled
them to take up arms against the
Arabs ... in order to wrest
Palestine from its rightful
owners." It warned that "the
Palestinian people will continue to
hold Britain greatly responsible
for the disasters that befell
them." They had hoped that Bri-
tain would "atone for its crime"
by supporting a Palestinian state,
"not side with the usurpers to pre-
vent the restoration of this
In fact, the Palestinian Arabs
have no reason to expect atone-
ment from Britain for its role dur-
ing the Mandate. It did what it
could to prevent Jewish immigra-
tion and statehood. It backed
some of the most extreme Palesti-
nian leaders like the Mufti of
Jerusalem, a British choice. It
severed Jordan from the rest of
Palestine and gave it to the Arabs
while repeatedly trying to ap-
pease them by offering large
chunks of the rest.
If the British need to apologize
or "atone" to anyone, it is to the
Israelis. Thatcher's visit to Israel
was a first symbolic step in that
process. However, it is not quite
enough. Even while in Israel That-
cher managed to lecture the
Israelis about the Palestinians,
noting that "because of you (the
Jewish people's) high standard,
more is expected of Israel than of
other countries." She told her
hosts that she favored "self-
determination for the Palestinian
people" which usually means an
Arab state on the West Bank
but she added that federation with
Jordan seems most promising
Thatcher's suggestion that
Palestinian Arabs find an "alter-
native" to the PLO, and her asser-
tion that Israel's security needs
are unique and pressing, were
positive. But so long as Britain
continues its embargo on arms
and oil sales to Israel while selling
billions in arms to the Arabs, some
of her other remarks were a bit
"cheeky." After all, Prime
Minister Shimon Peres while in
England recently did not lecture
Thatcher about her government's
handling of Northern Ireland or
about British inflexibility over the
Falklands. Peres understood that
it's not his place to tell London
how to run its foreign and
domestic policies despite its own
traditional "high standard." That-
cher, and other world leaders,
should recognize the same about

arbitration collapsed at the end of
May. State Department legal ad-
viser Judge Abraham Sofaer,
shuttling between Cairo and
Jerusalem, attempted to finesse
the problem. Had he succeeded, a
trip to the region by Secretary of
State George Shultz would have
been likely.
Egypt wanted the arbitral com-
promis the document to be con-
sidered by the arbitrators to
refer to the exact location of
border markers in the Sinai at
Taba, a small resort site just south
of Eilat. Israel dropped its de-
mand that the correct location of
the markers based on the 1906
border, not the position of the
markers before the 1967 war be
determined. Instead, it suggested
that each side submit an appendix
to the compromis in support of its
own position. Egypt turned this

on whether or not Shultz was

bolically important.
Mubarak "doesn't want any

needs "at least an indication it
could go Israel's way," the source
Parallel to the Taba impasse,
Israel suggested a new look at in-
creased self-rule by Palestinian
Arabs in the Gaza Strip in con-
junction with Egypt. The "Gaza
first" autonomy idea is not new,
but this time it was seen as a way
to revive Arab-Israeli contacts in
the face of Jordanian-Palestinian
paralysis. However, after former
Gaza Mayor Rashad al-Shawwa
discussed the idea with Egyptian
officials, Mubarak said that he
could not "separate this topic
from the West Bank issue." He
added that he could not act
unilaterally without the Palesti-
nians Arabs or Jordan's King

Egyptian officials have denied the
possibility of such facilities, partly
for fear of cricisism by domestic
opponents and by radical Arab
But willingness to consider
American bases now "is a sign of

Big is not necessarily better.
But, here we have both quantity
and quality in doses so massive as
to humble us ordinary mortals.
A historical novel focusing on
the Battle of Stalingrad, the book
avoids standard formulae, darting
from front lines to prison camps,
from laboratories to crude
villages, from hospitals to govern-
ment offices in a seemingly
aimless pattern that takes shape
only as you begin to absorb the

There are no heroes. Russia,
itself, is the main character: huge,
cruel, powerful, ruthless a

terrible but also something sad
and melancholy in this long cry ut-
tered by the Russin infantry as
they staged an attack. Instead of
gallantry or valor, you could hear
the sadness of a soul, parting with
everything it loved ..."
Gradually, the Russians out-
maneuver the vaunted German ar-
my but at a terrible price. War
plays no favorites, but Jews are
doubly victimized, targeted by the
German's master plan and conve-
nient scapegoats of Russian
The horror of the Holocaust is
recreated in words that numb you.
Incongruously, a band plays as
hapless Jews march to the
bathhouses where death awaits
them and "What music resurrects
in the soul of man about to die is
neither hope nor thought but
simply the blind, heart-breaking
miracle of life itself. Music had the
powers to express the last turmoil
of a soul in whose blind depths
every experience, every moment
of joy and grief had fused with this
misty morning, the glow hanging
over their heads. Or perhaps it
wasn't like that; perhaps music
was just the key to a man's feel-
ings, not what filled him at this
terrible moment, but the key that
locked his innermost core."
How, the author asks, can one
convey the feelings of a man
pressing his wife's hand for the
last time?
Amid the carnage, a Nazi officer
waxes philosphical: "Even if we
win," he says, "we will be alone in
an alien world that hates us."
If I were to venture a criticism
of Lxfe and Fate, I'd say it was 300
pages too long, but I hesitate.

Letters to the Editor
Dear Editor:
The survival of Israel is no longer merely a military question or
is it a question of war to be fought on Israel's borders. A non-
military war is now in progress within its borders which cannot be
won and can only destroy the nation that has defied annihilation
by enemies ringing its borders.
A separation has always existed in Israel between observant
and secular Jews. This separation has grown to the extent that it
has become a threat to the unity of the inhabitants of a nation
which owes its existence to determined unity. Observant Jews
have accosted patrons of a coffee house and damaged it in protest
of its opening on a Sabbath morning. Some non-religous Jews bait
their observant neighbors by purposely driving thru religous
neighborhoods on the Sabbath. In spite of the sensitivity of
religous Jews about the treatment of the dead, non-religous Jews
pressure for the performance of autopsies before death cer-
tificates can be issued. Not long ago, a Chassidic rabbi's plan to
construct a synagogue and yeshiva in the village of Yavne'el was
rejected because it would "destroy the character of the
The taunts, attacks, vandalism and threats from both sides have
created resentment, intolerance and outright hatred. It is Jew
against Jew. If the war continues there will be two Israelis one
secular and one religous, engaged in a battle in which there can be
no victor. There can only be losers all Jews, in Israel and
throughout the world.
One group has chosen to involve itself in bringing the different
Israeli factions together. Its name is the Gesher Foundation and
its members are both religous and secular Jews concerned
because of prevailing conditions and dedicated to preserving the
Jewish state. The word Gesher means bridge and is an apt name
for a group which is building bridges of understanding between
the religous and secular Jews of Israel. There is a great need for
both sectors to get to know one another and to understand that its
members are human beings and fellow Jews. There is a great
need to bring about a truce and an acceptance of each other that
can mean peace. The Gesher Foundation is addressing these
needs at the request of concerned Jewish leaders. This group
deserves all the support and recognition that can be afforded.
Bridging differences and building a single society that can be
shared by observant and non-observant Jews be they Ashkenazic
or Sephardic, orthodox, conservative or reform, must go on in
order to heal the rift that exists. The answer to the question of
"who is a Jew" must be "one who has been born a Jew." The
blood, sweat and tears that went into the creation of the Jewish
State and the lives that have been sacrificed to defend it must not
have been in vain. In unity there is strength. Division can only
create consternation and confusion among American Jews and
among Jews throughout the world who love and support the State
of Israel. Jews whether in Israel or other lands cannot afford the
luxury of questioning each other's legitimacy. Each sect should
live up to the democratic Israeli ideals and respect one another's
approach to Hebrew tradition. There should be room for all so
that divisive actions will not detract from Israel's main objective
to survive. Let no one threaten that survival and divide those
who have been brought together in common cause to provide a
refuge for homeless, manhandled and persecuted humanity.

Did Jewish Community Hinder Rights Movement?
By Avira Cantor
(Part Three Of
A Three-Part Series)
Epelbaum, one of the leaders of
the "Madres" the Mothers of
the Plaza de Mayo of Argentina
who have been demanding since
1976 an acounting from govern-
ment on the fate of their "disap-
peared" children has charged
that the DAI A (the representative
body of Argentine Jewry) opposed
and thus prevented Jewish
organizations abroad, especially
World Jewish Congress affiliates,
from expressing concern about
the human nights atrocities in her
country during the junta's reign
of terror 1976-1983.
Epelbaum told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that when
she was visiting the U.S. in late
1978, early 1979, she asked
leaders involved with the World
Jewish Congress to express con-
cern about the violations of human
rights in Argentina. She said she
was told that they could not do so
because of WJC policy that if the
affiliate in a particular country op-
posed it, others elsewhere
"couldn't say a word." She was
told the same thing in Canada and
later, in France, she said.
The effect of the DAIA's opposi-
tion to statements of concern by
American Jews about human
rights abuses in Argentina, she
said, was pernicious. Such
statements, she said, "could have
saved lives."
The junta, Epelbaum said, was
concerned about its economic and
political relations with the U.S.
"They had enough (trouble) with
the charges that they were
criminals and kidnappers. They
did not want to be charged with
being anti-Semitic." She
"The junta believed that the
Jewish community had influence
in the U.S. and Canada, and the
world in general, so they tried to
be supported by the DAIA so that
nobody, particularly in the U.S.
'Jewish lobby' would say
anything against them."
Rabbi Marshall Meyer, who was
the spiritual leader of Congrega-
tion Beth-El, a Conservative
synagogue in Buenos Aires, dur-
ing the reign of terror and a
member of the Permanent
Assembly for Human Rights, con-
firmed the DAIA's opposition to
human rights protests from
Jewish communities outside
Argentina. "This was a fatal er-
ror," he said. "Every pressure
should have been placed on every
major power of state to stop the
He told the JTA that he had
been present at a meeting in New
York in 1980 or 1981 of DAIA
leaders with those of American
Jewish organizations. The DAIA
leaders, he said, told the par-
ticipants in the meeting that they
did not want anyone "interfer-
ing" in Argentine affairs and told
them "not to get involved" with
the human rights violations there
in general or those against Jews in
Alan Rose, executive director of
the Canadian Jewish Congress,
told JTA in a telephone interview
that DAIA leaders had cautioned
that any "representations to the
Argentine government about the
concern of Canadians over human
rights violations should be made
quietly." The impression con-
veyed, he said, was that if such
statements were made publicly,
more people would be kidnapped,
and that "every time such a state-
ment is made publicly, another
person is murdered."
The CJC, he continued, realiz-
ing it should 'not be heroes in so-
meone else's back yard, was
careful not to embarrass the
Jewish community in Argentina
(out of) fear that there would be
consequences." Rose refused to
r> into details as to what the CJC
id on behalf of Jewish
desaparecidos and prisoners, in-
dicating the issue is still a sen-
sitive one.
Rabbi Morton Rosenthal, direc-
tor of the Latin American Affairs
Department of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, and of its Argentine
Prisoner Project during the reign
of terror, told the JTA he did not
accept the concept that the Jewish
community of Argentina, or the
prisoners from abroad. On the
contrary, he said, "outside
pressures were very helpful" and
were instrumental in getting
some prisoners, including
publisher Jacobo Timerman,
Israel Singer, secretary general
of the World Jewish Congress,
said that the cautioning by some,
"not all," of the DAIA's leaders
against speaking out "did not put
a damper on us." He said WJC
president Edgar Bronfman spoke
out very forcefully against the
junta at the 1981 meeting of the
Latin American Jewish Congress
in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and in inter-
views with Argentine
newspapers. Singer did
acknowledge, however, that
Jewish communities outside
Argentina "might have been more
vociferous if they (the DAIA) had
encouraged us." Another Jewish
communal leader told JTA that,
with the exception of the ADL,
which campaigned actively on
behalf of the desaparecidos and
prisoners, the American Jewish
community "bought the DAIA's
view that Argentine Jewry was
hostage to their silence."
Jewish observers familiar with
Argentina have expressed the
view that the DAIA may have
been motivated by fear for the
fate of the entire community in
that country, which has a long
history of anti-Semitism. The
reference the DAIA made to the
issue of intervention from abroad
in its 1984 document on Jewish
desaparecidos and prisoners was
'On June 5, 1978, the DAIA
received a note sent by the In-
terior Minister in which he made
some complaints about the cam-
paign waged abroad including
Israel against Argentine
authorities" while actually
"Argentine Jewry was specially
careful in criticizing anything
even of little importance that af-
fected the Jews in Argentina."
Epelbaum told the JTA that the
attitude of the organized Jewish
community in Argentina was
"very upsetting to me, painful,
very sad." It was not only the
Jewish community that did not
take strong action on behalf of the
junta's victims "almost
everybody was like them" but,
she said, "as a Jew, (in the light
of) the Jewish tradition, we ex-
pected a different attitude."
The Madres, Epelbaum among
them, are still marching in the
Plaza de Mayo because "we still
haven't gotten the answer as to
what happened to most of the
children" and because all the
criminals have not been punished.
"We can't close our eyes and (act)
as if nothing happened. For me,
the main factor is memory. As a
Jew you must remember the
Holocaust. You must remind peo-
ple what happened so it will not be
repeated. (Here, too) we need
justice to prevent this from recur-
ring. And memory must be kept
so we will never have this kind of
nightmare again."
In a resolution on Soviet Jews,
the RA convention warned Presi-
dent Reagan not to rely solely on
queit diplomacy in such cases as
that of Natan (Anatoly) Shcharan-
sky, but "to understand that this
pressure succeeded only because

South African Jews: Divestment Will Harm Us
(Editor's Note: This is the first
of a three-part series on the crisis
in South Africa. For a different
perspective, see Page 10.)
By Yehezkiel Ben-Daniel
Special to the Federation
numerous divisions of opinion on
many issues, the 100,000-strong
South African Jewish community
is completely united in its rejec-
tion of increasingly fashionable
economic sanctions against their
country. Their stance is in direct
contradiction to that of many
liberal American Jewish organiza-
tions which consider themselves
as front-line cheerleaders for U.S.
divestment of economic interests
in South Africa.
Chief Rabbi B.M. Casper set the
tone recently in a widely publiciz-
ed sermon which stated, "I have
asked colleagues overseas,
especially in the United States, to
do all they can to turn the minds
of legislators as well as ordinary
well-meaning people away from
the course of sanctions and in sup-
port of the policy of constructive
engagement which alone will pro-
duce the desired goal of a better,
richer, fuller life."
The term "constructive engage-
ment" was coined by the Reagan
Administration to characterize its
strategy of international involve-
ment within the South African
system to bring about peaceful
Dr. I. Abramowitz, president of
the World Jewish Congress af-
filiated Board of Jewish Deputies
as well as South Africa's B'nai
B'rith organization acknowledges,
as do virtually all Jewish leaders,
that "change will come, is com-
ing," but deplores the threat of
Jordan Boycotts
Arab Newspapers
In Territories
boycotts most of the Arab
newspapers in the administered
territories and does not even
allow quoting them in the Jorda-
nian press, the East Jerusalem
daily Al-Fajr reported.
According to the newspaper,
the ban has been in effect by a
directive of Mohammad Al-Hatib,
Jordan's Minister of Information.
The move has been seen here as a
reaction to the negative approach
taken by the local papers to the
departure of Jordan from its
cooperation with the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
Most local Arab newspapers
support the PLO, and even such
pro-Jordanian papers such as Al-
Kuds have turned toward
stronger support of the PLO. The
editors of Al-Kuds and Al-Biad*r
A-Siasi confirmed that the Jorda-
nians banned their newspapers'
entrance to the kingdom.
Jacque Hazmo, the editor of Al-
Biader a political weekly, said the
significance of the move is that
from now on the Jordanians will
derive their information on events
in the administered territories
mostly from Israeli sources.
Tehiya on Rise
TEL AVTV (JTA) A public
opinion poll published in Maariv
showed that the ultra-nationalist
rightwing Tehiya Party would
become the third largest in the
Knesset if elections were held
According to the poll, conducted
by the Modi'in Ezrachi Research
Institute, Tehiya would take votes
from Rabbi Meir Kahane's ex-
tremist Kach Party. Kach
presently has a single seat in the
120-member Knesset, won by
Kahane in the 1984 elections.
world-wide economic coercion.
"We're unhappy about divest-
ment moves and we are against
the practice. It is not a solution, it
is destruction. We need moderate
influences to work together to
solve our problems, not drastic
pushing," Dr. Abramowitz
analyzes, "Moreover, divestment
could spell real danger for us.
Blacks here have misconceptions
that Jews are hundreds of
thousands in number and control
big business in South Africa. If we
are hit and have to fire workers as
a result, their first instinct will be
to blame the Jews."
MP Helen Suzman, veteran civil
rights advocate who represents
the Progressive Federal Party
(PFP) is equally adamant in her
opposition to sanctions:
"Pressure is fine, but disinvest-
ment is bad. The effects will be
disastrous. We have no social
security net here and hundreds of
thousands of blacks would be the
first to suffer not only the
blacks of South Africa but in sur-
rounding states. It is a punitive
strategy and I agree with the aim,
dismantling apartheid, but his
won't do it."
Her views were echoed by
PFP/MP Harry Schwartz, one of
four Jewish Parliamentarians:
"Disinvestment is bad for South
Africa and bad for peaceful
change. It will stunt economic
growth and that limits the pro-
spects for peaceful change.
Disinvestment would hurt blacks
more than my Jewish constituents
(he represents a heavily Jewish
district in Johannesburg) because
they have more cushion, the
blacks less so." Schwartz is the
Opposition's chief spokesman on
financial affairs.
Mendel Kaplan, businessman
and leader of the South African
IUA Jewish fundraising, notes
that Jews play a vigorous and visi-
ble role in the nation's economy.
Jews represent no less than 10
percent of the white populace of
Johannesburg, for example, and
are leaders in several industries
such as insurance, steel, real
estate and diamonds all of
which would feel the lash of inter-
national economic sanctions. The
author of a recently released book
entitled Jewish Roots in the South
African Economy, Kaplan figures
that as much as "25 percent of the
financial action" in Johannesburg
is in Jewish hands.
Zionist Federation leader Julius
Weinstein is more succint: "Every
Jew here would be affected if
these sanctions take place. We
would have a tremendous sense of
isolation and people do crazy

B'nai B'rith's Dr. Abramowitz
scores U.S. Jewish organizations
such as the American Jewish Con-
gress for "Falling over
themselves to join the anti-South
Africa bandwagon, it's almost to
the point of neurosis." He is con-
vinced that such groups hope to
"build bridges in the U.S. to
American black organizations,"
but he warns, "They must unders-
tand the tightrope we are walking
we have to live with the situa-
tion here."

CJF Inaugurates New North
American Jewish Data Bank
NEW YORK, N.Y. The Coun-
cil of Jewish Federations has in-
augurated a new North American
Jewish Data Bank which will
serve as both a practical tool for
Jewish communal planning across
the continent and a vital resource
for scholarship. It will provide
basic and essential Jewish
demographic data that will offer
Federations throughout the
United States and Canada an
overview of regional and national
trends and a wider perspective on
Jewish communal life.
The Data Bank is the result of
an agreement reached between
CJF, guided by its Long-Range
Planning Committee chaired by
Mandell L. Herman of Detroit,
and the Graduate Center of the
City University of New York to
create a North American Jewish
Data Bank through which
research data on the Jewish
population will be collected and
analyzed. It is being established in
response to recommendations
made at the CJF-sponsored Collo-
quium on Jewish Population
Studies in 1984.
The official inauguration of the
Data Bank took place last month
at the Graduate Center of the City
University 0f New York. Par-
ticipants in the ceremony included
Mandell L. Berman, Canni
Schwartz, CJF Executive Vice
President, Dr. Joseph S. Murphy,
Chancellor of the City University
of New York, and Dr. Harold M.
Proshansky, President of the
Graduate School and University
Center, CUNY, as well as a
number of trustees, regents and
other dignitaries.
In addition to the Graduate
Center, the Data Bank, which will
be headed by Dr. Barry A. Kosmin
of CJF, will be working
cooperatively with the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem and with
Brandeis University.
The gathering of Jewish
demographic data has a long and
impressive history going back to
Biblical times. As the demography
of the Jewish people changed with
the major movements of the
Diaspora and with evolving
political and social environments,
the history of Jewish data gather-
ing changed as well.
After the Enlightenment, the
Jews of Europe used data banks
for the practical planning of effec-
tive and efficient Jewish com-
munities that were not only
vibrant social entities in and of
themselves, but also in touch with
the mainstream of contemporary
social reality.
This purpose carries over to to-
day's North American Jewish
community, perhaps the most
vibrant and complex of all Jewish
communities, with access to un-
precedented resources, including
a technology that earlier data
gatherers and census takers could
not have dreamed of.
According to Dr. Sidney Golds-
tein, director of the Population
Studies and Training Center at
Brown University, the North
American Jewish Data Bank "will
come to play a major role in
enhancing both the quality and
the quantity of statistics available
for the analysis of the American
Jewish population. In so doing, it
should, in turn, contribute in a
very significant way to enhancing
our ability to understand the
dynamics of population change
and to developing policies and pro-
grams that will allow us to cope
more effectively with the
challenges that the Jewish com-
munity faces."
The first task of this new na-
tional repository will be to collect
the tapes, code books and
technical reports from various
community studies sponsored by
local Federations during the last
few years. This process will re-
quire cooperation in order to
establish a basic Data Bank that
will build on what has already
been done and then move
Dr. Kosman, who arrived at
CJF in April 1986 to fill the newly
created position of Director of
Research, will work closely with
the CJF National Technical Ad-
visory Committee and the CJF
Planners' Task Force on Research
in order to improve CJF's own
research efforts and the general
collection of Federation data.
Appointed as a Visiting Pro-
fessor at the Center for Modern
Jewish Studies at the Graduate
Center, City University of New
York, Dr. Kosmin was born in
London and educated in England
and Canada. From 1974 to 1986,
he served as Executive Director
of Research for the Board of
Deputies of British Jews. He was
also consultant to the Comeil
Europeen de Services Com-

tion's professional staff with the
hope of offering the Office of
Jewish Education," "... an op-
portunity to expand its horizons
and take a more in-depth ap-
proach to the overall educational
future of the South Broward
Jewish community."
Weissberg received his doc-

Smallberg is Active
In JCC, Federation
Harry Smallberg remembers a
question posed by U.S. Rep. Larry
Smith of Hollywood.
Smith, speaking before local
Jewish residents who had sup-
ported UJA/Federation for the
last 40 years asked, "Who's going
to take our place in supporting
Israel after we're gone if we don't
imbue our children with this sense
of commitment."
"Does my dream die with me,"
Smallverg asked himself.
His answer was no the dream
does not die.
"I felt the JCC was a good way
to continue my dream," said
Smallberg, who is chairman of the
Hillrest JCC Capital Fund Cam-
paign. The JCC has been raising
money to build the David Posnack
Jewish Community Center on the
Nina and Louis Silverman Cam-
pus. The center will feature the
Jack Malamud Performing Arts
Smallberg's personal dream
began more than 40 years ago
when he became aware of the
need to protect the Jewish people.
"Frankly, I can't understand
how any Jew can't be involved if
they have any knowledge of
history," Smallberg said. "The
need to keep Israel alive is of
primary importance."
Harry and Sally Smallberg
became active in the Jewish com-
munity in Brooklyn at Union Tem-
ple, where he served as a vice
president, and also with the
UJA/Federation campaign at the
When the Smallbergs moved to
Hillcrest almost 20 years ago,
they became active in the local
UJA/Federation Campaign for
Harry Smallberg
two years in the 1970s and chair-
man of the 1984-85 drive. At that
time Hillcrest raised $1,000,000
for the campaign.
"I feel that without Israel, the
Jewish people have no place to
go," Smallberg said, adding that
he and Sally visited Isarel in 1972.
He created a scholarship fund at
the Technion in Haifa because he
believes Israel's future is tied to
high technology.
Visiting Israel was an emotional
trip for the Smallbergs. "I
remember seeing these people and
what they had accomplished and
what they could do," Smallberg
said. "And they have a fierce feel-
ing of freedom."
It is this sense of freedom for
the Jewish people that Harry
Smallberg has worked for
throughout his life.

sive articles for the CAJE Journal
and has been published in the
Private School Quarterly. He is a
consultant for nonpublic schools
and has served on the SACS ac-
creditation team. He is a state
trainer for the newly implemented

Dr. Weissberg was responsible
for the instruction of the first
Teacher training program in
South Broward offering classes to
aspiring young individuals in-
terested in becoming Religious
and/or Sunday School teachers.
This past year he offered a similar
course at the Hebrew Academy
for College credit to high school
seniors. He will be offering a
seminar this summer at the na-
tional convention of the Con-
ference on Alternatives in Jewish
education at the University of
Dr. Wei88berg's current goals
are "to put the Jewish Educa-
tional Community on the national
agenda." According to Dr.
Weissberg, "the South Broward
Jewish community is recognized
on many national levels, for its
growth, giving and
resourcefulness through the ef-
forts of its Federation and its
emerging JCC. So too must the
educational commitment of this
community become part of an ex-
citing and growing community
recognized by all as significant in
its innovation, quality and drive.
We have an excellent foundation
from which to begin. The com-
munity offers Jewish families
quality Jewish education through
its Day Schools and supplemen-
tary schools program, growing
early childhood programs, and the
potential for innovative and
dynamic programming."
Having been a member of the
Education Committee for the past
five years, Dr. Weissberg in-
dicates that he is well aware of the
communities past and potential
for its future. He would like to see
some significant attempts at
outreach to the Jewish educators.
Some of his goals are: to attract
unaffiliated children into some of
the fine Jewish educational in-
stitutions already existing in the
community, develop an outreach
program with The Educational
Resource Center, making it more
accessible to those in the com-
munity, both professional and lay,
who cannot come to the Federa-
tion building to utilize the Center,
to develop Jewish Community
High School program in conjunc-
tion with the Synagogue schools,
to develop a Community Institu-
tion of Higher Education, and to
offer Jewish educational pro-
grams during the summer.
To that end, Dr. Weissberg has
announced the beginnings of just
such of a program. CIT's at the
JCC summer camps will have the
opportunity to take a Judaica
High School Class once a week.

Orthodox-Secular Tensions Increase in Israel
Yeshiva Vandalized:
Bus Shelter Burned
By David Landau
violence by anti-religious ex-
tremists against ultra-Orthodox
zealots who have been burning
and defacing bus stops in recent
weeks erupted in Tel Aviv,
Jerusalem and other cities as the
government made strenuous ef-
forts to effect a reconciliation bet-
ween secular and religious Jews.
Vandals broke into Hidushei
Harim Yeshiva in the Ramat
Hayal quarter of Tel Aviv and
went on a rampage destroying
prayer books, Bibles, copies of the
Talmud and phylacteries. The
walls of the yeshiva, which is run
by the Gur Hasidim, were daubed
with slogans such as "Khomeini-
ists," a reference to the Ayatollah
Ruholla Khomeini who imposed a
theocratic government on Iran;
"Organization Against Blacks," a
reference to the black garb worn
by ultra-Orthodox Jews; and
"Down with th:.- Black Parasites."
The Mfthnt was the worst in
the series of anti-religious attacks
that began with arson at the Bnei
Benjamin synagogue in Tel Aviv.
The walls of the Great Synagogue
in Tel Aviv were daubed with
swastikas. Swastikas also ap-
peared on cars and house walls in
the Neve Sharet religious quarter.
Mayor Shlomo Lehat of Tel
Aviv said he was shocked by the
"terrible and dreadful" violence.
Aguda Israel MK Avraham
Shapira demanded life sentences
for the perpetrators.
In Jerusalem, a burial society
van was attacked by anti-religious
elements. Religious books were
destroyed in a school in Yavniel
and slogans were painted on the
walls of the school building and on
homes denouncing the local rabbi.
Ultra-Orthodox zealots have,
for weeks, waged relentless war-
fare on bus shelters in Jerusalem
and elsewhere because of adver-
tising posters they consider "inde-
cent." More than a score of ar-
rests have been made, but secular
Jews have complained that the
police are not tough enough with
the religious vandals. Mayor Ted-
dy Kollek of Jerusalem in fact
predicted there would be counter-
violence by anti-religious
In Petach Tikva, where Or-
thodox Jews have demonstrated
regularly during the past year
against Friday night cinema per-
formances, an illuminated map of
the city was sprayed with black
paint and slogans attacking
secular Mayod Dov Tavori. In
Rishon LeZion, a bus carrying
advertising posters was burned.
Premier Shimon Peres has been
trying desperately to prevail on
religious and secular elements to
end the violence. Recently, he and

Medical Journal Stirs Controversy
Jewish Catholic
Leaders Claim
Article on Jesus'
Death Promotes
By Margie Olster
NEW YORK (JTA) Several
leaders of Jewish and Catholic
organizations and scores of other
readers have attacked an article
on the physical causes of the death
of Jesus published in the Journal
of the American Medical Associa-
tion (JAMA), saying the authors
perpetuate versions of the death
of Jesus which are the source of
much modern Christian anti-
Semitism and an ti-Judaism.
The critical letters condemn the
authors for their historical rather
than their medical analyses and
claim that the article treats the
gospels' accounts of the crucifix-
ion as literal and historical fact.
But actually, there is much con-
troversy over and inconsistency in
these accounts, the letters said.
The nine-page Journal article
gives a synopsis of the events
leading up to the crucifixion. One
critic called this synopsis a
"conflation" of four conflicting
and "disparate texts."
The main body of the article
details Jesus' gruesome physical
tortures as described in these ac-
counts with particular attention to
the flogging and crucifixion. The
article was part of a series on tor-
ture but that was not indicated
anywhere in the article.
The authors then offer different
explanation of medical effects of
these types of injuries and back up
their findings with evidence from
archaeological discoveries. The ar-
ticle also includes illustrations
(done by a medical artist) of cross-
sections of wrists and feet with
metal spikes driven through and
explanations of these injuries.
The authors claim to offer "a
modern medical interpretation of
the historical evidence" to show
that Jesus was in fact dead when
taken down from the cross.
"Accordingly, it is our intent to
present not a theological treatise
but rather a medically and
historically accurate account of
the physical death of the one call-
ed Jesus Christ," the article said.
The critics challenge the
historical accuracy of these ac-
counts. But the authors give the
following guarantee: "Using the
legal-historical method of scien-
tific investigation, scholars have
established the reliability and ac-
curacy of the ancient
The sources cited in the article
are identified as ancient Christian
and non-Christian writings and
modern works as well as the
Shroud of Turin.
NJCRAC's Proposed
Apartheid Position
The following are strategic goals for the Jewish community
that are under consideration by the National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council.
Strategic Goals: The Jewish community relations field should:
urge Jewish communal institutions to divest their portfolios
of investments in companies which do not comply with the
Sullivan Principles;
encourage Congress to monitor and evaluate the impact of
President Reagan's Executive Order imposing limited economic
sanctions on South Africa;
continue to advocate passage of the Kennedy-Gray Anti-
Apartheid Act;
press our government to take the lead in formulating an
overall western strategy of pressure upon the South African
-interpret to leaders of the anti-apartheid movement the
Jewish community's and Israel's profound opposition to
undertake educational programs within the Jewish communi-
ty to interpret our stake in the fight against the racial policies
which the apartheid system represents and embodies;
continue to develop and disseminate information inter-
preting Israel's abhorrence of apartheid and its relationships with
South Africa.

Community Relations Committee, at 921-8810.
But Rabbi James Rudin,
American Jewish Committee
director of interreligious affairs,
and Eugene Fisher, executive
secretary of the Secretariat for
Catholic-Jewish Relations, who
sent letters to JAMA, claimed the
article completely ignores modern
scholarship on the New
In a June 12 editorial response
to reactions to the article, JAMA
editor George Lundberg wrote
that the Journal received "a
deluge of letters" on this article.
Lundberg told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that the ma-
jority of the letters were critical,
but that many also praised "On
the Physical Death of Jesus
The journal devoted equal
space, nine pages, to publishing
these letters in a later issue,
Lundberg said. Although the
editors knew the article would
raise controversial religious
issues, Lundberg insisted that it
had "nothing to do with religion."
The article was presented as the
first of a series on torture to give
an example of state-sponsored
torture practiced by different
groups historically, Lundberg
"The article was an account of
perhaps the most influential
single event of torture in history
with physiologically sound
analysis showing the horrifying
pain of a common ancient Roman
punishment," Lundberg wrote in
the editorial. Lundberg also said
the authors and editors had no
anti-Semitic intent.
But these two organizations
took issue particularly with the ac-
counts of the Jewish trials and the
interpretation presented in the
JAMA article which holds that the
Jews "persistently demanded
crucifixion" for Jesus.
The letters say that disputed
ideas are presented as fact in the
article such as the account of a
trial by the Sanhedrin, Jesus' con-
viction for blasphemy and the role
of Pontius Pilate. These aspects
"are highly questionable as
historical events, but tell us much
about their authors' theological
perspectives," Fisher wrote in the
Fisher contends that the gospels
"whitewashed" the historical
figure of Pontius Pilate and placed
more blame for Jesus' death on
the Jews. But the JAMA article
presents an account of Pilate
simply acceding to the Jews'
demands to crucify Christ and
presents the idea of collective
Jewish guilt for the crucifixion.
The AJC letter said "Serious
scholars have long ago laid these
untruths to rest. By giving them
the dignity of a 'scientific' presen-
tation in JAMA, you have dealt a
body blow to years of painstaking
Jewish-Christian dialogue and
The letter goes on to say that
this type of interpretation of the
Passion story has been tradi-
tionally a source of anti-Semitism
and anti-Judaism.
"Most major denominations and
all responsible scholars strive to
take care in the presentation of
the gospel story in order to avoid
fanning the flames of anti-
Judaism anew," the AJC letter
said. "One sure way of fanning
those flames is to engage in a pop-
historiography which is innocent
of all critical method,
demonstrated by (the)
authors ."

Death of Jesus Christ" which ap-

troversial issues" and released a
statement rejecting "with disgust
the use of violence to influence
decision-making or to express pro-
test." Peres said at the meeting
that "both religious and anti-
religious coercion" are inadmissi-
ble. Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi
Avraham Shapira warned that
violence and the destruction of
property are forbidden by the
Shamir said after the meeting
that the danger lies in the support
fringe groups have managed to
mobilize lately among wider
circles. He urged isolating the fr-
inge groups that are involved in
acts of violence.
But, Shamir observed, in his
view the status quo on religious
observance had been eroded by
certain mayors. Police Minister
Haim Bar lev said the first priority
is to restore respect for the law.
He sharply criticized Aguda Israel
MK Menachem Porush for saying
publicly recently that he personal-
ly would deface offending adver-
tisements on bus shelters.
Police Inspector General David
Kraus said he met with the rabbis
of the ultra-Orthodox Eda Haredit
sect which has been involved in
the attacks on bus shelters. He
said he had the impression they
were trying to calm tempers.
After the attack, thousands of
black-garbed observant Jews,
mostly members of the Hassidic
Gur Sect, attended a memorial
serivce for the prayer books and
other holy objects desecrated by
unknown persons, presumably
anti-religious secular Jews, at Gur
yeshiva in the Ramat Hehayal
quarter of Tel Aviv.
The crowd, estimated at about
10,000 then marched from the
yeshiva to the Kiryat Shaul
cemetery where the remains of
the torn objects, packed in clay
jars, were buried in accordance
with traditional rites.
Jewish Family Outlook
JFS Offers In-Home Respite Care
The In-Home Respite Care program at Jewish Family Service
is in its third month. Jewish Family Service is now providing an
average of 25 families per week with at least four hours of respite
care service.
Many persons who are responsible for the care of elderly
parents, a spouse, or a chronically ill person become so over-
whelmed with the burden that they are unable to give themselves
or their families adequate attention.
The In-Home Respite Care program provides supervised care
for the elderly or chronically ill person while providing an interval
of relief and rest to the primary caregiver. The In-Home Respite
Care program is intended to meet some of the physical, emo-
tional, and social needs of the primary caregiver(s), the one or two
relatives or friends who take major responsibility for sustaining
the disabled, frail, or chronically ill individual. These givers are
often in desperate need of respite, if only for a few hours, a dav or
a week. *
Mr. and Mrs. X are typical of families helped. They are a couple
in their early 70s who have three grown children who live out of
state They have lived in this area for the past 10 yaers. Last year
Mr. X suffered a massive stroke which left him partially paralyzed
and somewhat confused. Mrs. X has assumed the role of a 24 hour
caregiver even though she has a variety of illnesses, including
servere arthritis, which limits her functioning. Respite Care is
needed because Mr. X can no longer be left alone and Mrs. X is
unable to give her husband all the personal care that he needs.
The Respite Care Worker comes one afternoon a week and
gives Mr. X all the personal care he needs, such as bathing
feeding, and changing his bed. Mrs. X is now free to leave the
home to shop visit a friend, or keep an appointment with her
own doctor. When she returns home, she finds that most of her
husband s needs have been met for the day and she can resume
care for hum for the rest of the week.
The Respite Care service is focused on the caregiver. While the
ill patient gets personal care that he/she needs the caregiver is
relieved both physically and mentally by being able to step away
from the constant stress of 24 hour care. Such respite helps to
delay the physical and psychological pressure for premature
placement of ill patients into nursing homes.
Respite Care Workers are experienced in all phases of personal
care. I unding for this program has been made available through
special fundraising efforts of the Board of Directors of the Jewish
Family Service of Broward County.

Soviet Student's Jail
Sentence Is Suspended
NEW YORK (JTA) The one-

Betzalel Shalolashvili for "draft
evasion" was suspended by the
Soviet authorities Wednesday on
appeal. The 22-year-old student
from Soviet Georgia was placed
on three years' probation instead,
the Student Struggle for Soviet
Jewry reported here Thursday.
According to the SSSJ, this was
"an unusual move, y^ry possibly a
response to Western pressure."
Shalftlashrili was arrested last
March and put on trial in April.

in Jersey City, with activity

Two people were chiefly respon-
sible for this joyous event: Rabbi
Mordechai Kanelsky, executive
director of Bris Avrohom, a
Lubavitcher rabbi who is himself a
native of Moscow; and Mrs.
Shirley Gralla, chairperson of
Friends of Bris Avrohom, the
sponsoring and organizing group
that put the wheels in motion for
the wedding. Astonishingly, the
two of them had the same idea,
they said, at the same time and
were trying for some weeks to
contact each other.
Both Kanelsky and Gralla pegg-
ed the wedding festivities to the
Liberty Weekend celebrating the
centennial of the Statue of Liber-
ty. "We hope our good news will
be a small appetizer for that most
happy occasion, because of the
great affection our people share
for the symbol of liberty," they
concurred. They are therefore
calling the event a "Celebration of
Religious Freedom."
The sponsoring committee for
the wedding included high govern-
ment figures in New Jersey.
Among them were U.S. Senators
Bill Bradley and Frank
Lautenberg, both New Jersey
Democrats, and Gov. Tom Kean, a
Republican, who agreed to be
honorary chairmen. Also active in
organizing the wedding was
Teaneck Mayor Bernard Brooks.
But, stressed spokesperson
Susan Black, "This was not a
political event at all. It was truly a
celebration of religious freedom.

there shows support for the
wonderful freedoms that we have
in America. Hopefully." said

Anti-Semitism in Egyptian
Media Causes Israeli Concern
Israel has delivered a
message to the United
States and France voicing
concern over repeated anti-
Semitic and anti-Israel ex-
pressions in the Egyptian
media, according to a report

The message was delivered
both by the Israeli Embassy in
Washington to the State Depart-
ment and by Foreign Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir personally to the
French administration during his
recent visit to France.
animosity toward Israel in the
Egyptian press has reached un-
precedented peaks," Haaretz
quoted unidentified political
sources in Jerusalem as saying.
An adviser to the Egyptian In-
formation Minister told Sawt Al-
Arab radio station that Egypt
regards the Shin Bet affair in
Israel as "an expression of the ag-
gressive and terrorist nature of
Israel, which characterized that
country from its very beginning."
The pro-establishment weekly
Al-MusBawar wrote the following
with regard to the scandal involv-
ing Jonathan Pollard's spying ac-
tivities: "Israel will not hesitate to
betray her ally and sell the CIA to
the highest bidder."
The weekly continued: "The
Arab countries, and particularly
Egypt, should learn a lesson that
Israel does not distinguish bet-
ween enemy and friend in its ...
stealing of secrets."
AL-AHRAM wrote that the
election of Kurt Waldheim as
President of Austria on June 8
would open the way for the
release of the West from the
"complex of crimes which world
Zionism and Israel have planted in
it, and which was used for
political, economic and

executive director of Jewish
Federation in the U.S., wrote the
original proposal for the creation
of the Council, which was
established by Congress in 1980
under the charimanship of writer
and Holocaust survivor Elie
The Council was created to
coordinate "a campaign to
remember," raising funds for the
U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
in Washington, which is expected
to be completed in December
To date the Council has raised
some $25 million enough for
construction of the building which
members expect to get underway
sometime soon. Although they
estimate about another $75
million as the cost for completing
the museum, staff members say
they are confident that the needed
funds can be obtained.
The Council also sponsors the
commemoration of Days of
Remembrance a Holocaust
memorial observance held annual-
ly at the Capitol on Yom Haahoa,
Holocaust Remembrance Day.
Other Goals Of The Council
But Krieger said the Council
would be pursuing other goals as
well, such as expanding its
outreach and cooperative pro-
gram with Holocaust centers and
institutions throughout the world,
and with civic, educational and
religous institutions in the United
States. Ultimately, he said, the
Council's aim is to serve as the na-
tional center for information and
programs on the Holocaust.
The Council also plans to create
a Committee on Conscience that
would receive information on
genocide or potential genocide
anywhere in the world and for
dissemination to the U.S.
"The issues raised by the
Holocaust and by the other Nazi
genocides are not just an issue for
Jewish Americans but for all
Americans," Krieger said. "This
museum is of concern not only to
Americans. The issues reflected
here affect peoples throughout
the world."
Krieger will be succeeding Rab-

40 Families Forced
to Abandon Settlement
By Gil Sedan
Yericho (Rose of Jericho), a hilltop
settlement overlooking the Jor-
dan Valley, has been abandoned
by the 40 families whose home it
was for the past six years. The
reason: bankruptcy.
Financial woes pile done atop
the other unitl the moshav was
unable to function. "It is the end
of Zionism," one settler said. "We
have been broken by petty-minded
clerks," declared moshav
secretary Arik Shaul. Another
member wept openly as he
lowered the Israeli flag for the
last time.
The moshav blames an unfeel-
ing bureaucracy for its demise and
lashed out at the "settlement in-
stitutions." But Matityahu
Drobless, chairman of the World
Zionist Organization's Settlement
Department, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency in Jerusalem
Wednesday that the moshav
brought its problems on itself.
Ten months ago it received a $1
million mortgage to build perma-
nent homes. The money was im-
mediately deposited with a thrift
institution which paid high in-
terest. It was supposed to do the
purchasing for the moshav. But a
few months later the institution
collapsed because of its own finan-
cial difficulties and took the
moshav's money with it.
The settlers also lost the
$150,000 they had deposited to
pay the water bills. The bills were
never paid and the Mekorot water
company cut off the water which
was used to irrigate the moshav's
According to Drobless, he warn-
ed the settlers not to deposit their
money with the failing financial
institution but they didn't heed his
advice. Nevertheless, he said, the
WZO continued to assist the set-
tlement even though it was not en-
titled to assistance. "One could
not ignore their troubles," he
The assistance was too little and
too late. This week the settlers
turned in their personal weapons
to the local military authorities.
The 40 families got into their cars
and drove in a long motorcade to
Jerusalem. It was like a funeral
procession, one observer said.
They spent Wednesday night at a
hostel and were to demonstrate
Thursday outside the Prime
Minister's Office. They will not
end their campaign for help, the
settlers said. Vered Yericho is not
the only moshav in trouble.
Moshav Kochav Michael in the
Lachish region also closed its
gates Wednesday because of a
financial crisis.

Israel Suffers Less Home Consensus Than Ever Before
Israel is less of a nation
ite today than it was
rfore the 1967 Six-Day
far and with less consen-
is on basic issues which go
ito defining a nation state.
This is the conclusion of Prof,
ilomo Avineri, Herbert Samuel
professor of Political Science at
ie Hebrew University of
srusalem, and he offered it at the
inual international conference of
tie Leonard Davis Institute for
(lternational Relations of the
kebrew University. The con-
ference was on the topic of the
future of the Nation State in the
fiddle East.
Prof. Avineri believes that in
very modern nation state there
re internal tensions, and that
srael is no exception. But prior to
57, said Avineri at the con-
Brence, there were tendencies
id balances which tended to
noderate tensions in areas regar-
ling relationships between Israeli
ad diaspora Jews, the question of
eligion and state, the state and
i Arab minority, and the issue of
SINCE THE war of 1967,
^vineri said, with all of the
tianges in society that have
risen from it, there has been a
rowing radicalization in Israeli
fe and thinking which has tended
exacerbate the preexisting
He listed these as 1) the
Realization and Palestinization
\{ Israeli Arabs; 2) the develop-
ment of a strong, radical,
itional-religious messianic move-
dent; 3) the heightened interven-
fon of diaspora Jews in Israeli
cial, religious and political af-
lirs; and 4) the breakdown of the
lonsensus as to what the borders
\{ the state are or should be.
Because of this, said Avineri, it
ay therefore be said that Israel
a less clearly defined nation
Itate than it once was, since there
Is less consensus on basic
llements, such as territoriality
pid ethnicity, which go into the
nakeup of a nation state.
IN OPENING the conference,
Prof. Eli Kedourie of the London
Bchool of Economics observed
'Israel is a less clearly defined nation
state than it once was.'
Prof. Avineri
that the concept of a modern na-
tion state with limited territory
and a sovereignty that derives
from the people is a "foreign im-
portation" to the Middle East,
where the Islamic concept was
prevalent, with its history of con-
quest and rulers who held reign by
"divine providence." Thus there
is an inner tension within the
Islamic world between the
modern idea of the state and the
traditional Islamic concept, said
Prof. Kedourie.
Even those Middle Eastern
states which on paper have
adopted the concept of a
sovereign state based on the con-
sent of the governed the idea of
free elections has been the excep-
tion rather than the rule, he said.
Prof. Emmanuel Sivan, pro-
fessor of history at the Hebrew
University, defined the typical
Middle Eastern state as a police
state which rules by repression.
Speaking on the topic of the
future of the Arab nation state
and the Islamic challenge, he said
it was an exaggeration to think in
terms of a pan-Arabic, Khomeini-
style Islamic wave overwhelming
the Arab states.
He said that the Arab states
have successfully inculcated the
minds of their peoples with the
concept of the "sacredness" of na-
tional unity; thus the nation state
has acquired a kind of mystique or
cult-like status among the peoples
of the Middle East, he said. The
Arabs placate themselves with the
thought that some day there will
be a single Islamic entity, said
DR. HELGA Baumgarten, of
the Free University of Berlin, said
that the mainstream of the
Palestine Liberation Organization
has clearly opted for the political
solution of negotiating the crea-
tion of a Palestinian state
alongside that of Israel, but that
Israeli and U.S. policy which
refuses to deal with the PLO
undermines the moderate PLO
approach and threatens its
legitimacy within Palestinian
Thus those who favor a con-
tinuation of the armed struggle
against Israel are able to maintain
support for their approach, with
the danger this poses to further
warfare, she maintained.
Prof. Itamar Rabinowitz of the
Shiloah Institute of Tel Aviv
University, in discussing the
Lebanese situation, said that the
most likely scenario for the short
range in that country is the con-
tinuation of the status quo of the
internal struggle for power that
has been going on for the past 11
years. The current fighting in
Beirut, he said, arises from the
desire to carve out zones of con-
trol from which future
autonomous political regions may
very well someday arise in a
future agreement.
PROF. Yehoshafat Harkabi,
director of the Leonard Davis In-
stitute, summed up the con-
ference and observed that as the
concept of power based on nation
states with clearly defined
borders has become ever
Prior to 1967,
there were
balances which
tended to
moderate tensions
in areas regarding
relationships to the
diaspora, religion
and state, the
Arab minority,
and territoriality.

War, there has

radicalization of
Israeli life.
strengthened in the world, in-
cluding the Middle East, the idea
of Pan-Arabism has declined in
the Arab world.
This could serve as an
alleviating factor in the Arab-
Israeli conflict, he said; however,
even as the political conflict
declines, it could become replaced
by an ethnic-religious conflict
derived from growing religious
radicalization, both in Arab as
well as Israeli society. And such a
conflict, he warned, could be even
more difficult to resolve than a
political one.
Neveh Zedek Quarter Flourishes
In Shadow of Tel Aviv fe Skyscrapers
[bove is a renovated building in tKe Neveh Zedek quarter. Below
the same building before renovation.
In April, 1886, near to the Jaffa
end of Tel Aviv's beach, the Neve
Zedek quarter, the first Jewish
area of Jaffa and the mother of
Tel Aviv, was founded. The story
of Neveh Zedek began when a
large number of refugees from the
Eastern European pogroms set up
homes in the Arab city of Jaffa,
which resulted in rents rocketing
sky high. A group of Jewish set-
tlers there led by Jerusalem born
Shimon Rokach and Algerian im-
migrant Aharon Chelouche decid-
ed to found a cooperative housing
scheme to escape these rents and
thus the development of the
Neveh Zedek quarter began.
The Chelouche family worked as
goldsmiths in Jaffa's Chalfanim
Street, the city's central trading
place. But because of Jaffa's role
as a port, the central business ac-
tivity soon became money chang-
ing for the numerous sailors who
thronged the ancient port.
IN 1887, the Chelouches, along
with other Jewish residents of Jaf-
fa, moved out of their old homes
and the Neveh Zedek quarter soon
became a vibrant new Jewish
area. Walking through the area
today one is struck by the run
down and desolate nature of the
quarter. To the north can be seen
the nearby skyscrapers of Tel
Aviv, and it is hard to imagine
that this unprepossessing collec-
tion of streets was the starting
point of Israel's largest
In 1909, members of Neveh
Zedek, along with residents of Jaf-
fa and Neveh Shalom, formed a
society named Ahuzat Bavit, the
aim of the society being the con-
struction of a new Jewish city.
Taking a loan of 300,000 gold
francs from the Anglo-Palestine
Company, the ancestor of today's
Bank Leumi, the Ahuzat Bayit us-
ed the gold to buy the land on
which the first 70 houses of Tel
Aviv were built.
Neveh Zedek, however, was not
always the poor relation of Tel
Aviv. In its beginning many pro-
minent Jewish intellectuals resid-
ed there. S.Y. Agnon, a Nobel
Prize Literature laureate, had a
house in the early years of this
century. The great Hebrew poet
Bialik stayed there on his visit to
Palestine, and the father of
modern Hebrew, Eliezer Ben
Yehuda, was a frequent visitor to
the quarter. Many of the homes
today bear marble plaques testify-
ing to the events that took place
there and the distinguished per-
sonalities who at one time lived in
those houses.
NEVEH ZEDEK also boasted
synagogues in abundance and the
religious Zionist leader Rabbi
Kook lived in the quarter when he
was Chief Rabbi of Jaffa/Tel Aviv.
Schools were built in the area,
including the Neveh Zedek Girl's
School, built in 1908, although the
school is no longer used for
teaching but has been turned into
the center for the Neveh Zedek
Theater Group. The Group, which
was founded by leading Israeli
writers such as Chanoch Levin
and A.B. Yehoshua, aims to make
inroads into the existing Israeli
theater and breathe new life into
The fact that the group has its
center in Neveh Zedek is almost
symbolic, for just as the artists
wish to breathe new life into
Israeli theater, so too are the ar-
tists breathing new life into
Neveh Zedek. The quarter, once a
haven for Jewish intellectuals,
before becoming almost a ghost
town in the face of sprawling Tel
Aviv, is now being turned into an
artiat'8 quarter. A lot of work is
still needed before the quarter can
recapture its youth but it is hoped
that Neveh Zedek will do so in
time for its centenary celebrations
next year.

Israel Bonds Notebook
Local Israel Bond leaders will attend the Bond Organization's
1986 National Leadership Conference which will be hosted by
Baltimore's Jewish community from Sept. 10-14 at the Hyatt
Regency Hotel in that city, David Sklar and Harvey Fell recently
The local participants will be joining 300 Jewish leaders from
the U.S. and Canada at the four-day conference.
Sklar reported that new marketing strategies and campaign
techniques will be the main focus of this year's Bond leadership
Major conference events will include training worksops dealing
with the Bond Organization's various financial instruments; a
campaign report by the President of Israel Bonds, Brig. Gen.
(Res.) Yehudah Haley; addresses by major Israeli and American
political personalities; and meetings of the Women's and New
Leadership Divisions.
Special caucuses will also deal with the synagogue Bond cam-
paign, tourism to Israel and other phases of the Bond Organiza-
tion's multi-faceted program.
The annual Israel Bond Leadership Conference launches its
Fall effort in the United States and Canada which is traditionally
the most productive phase of the year's Bond drive.
"Our goal this year," Fell said, "is to surpass the record $505
million which the Bond Organization channeled into Israel's
economic development last year."
He continued: "Israel has made good progress in stabilizing its
economy during the past year. We must now help the nation con-
tinue its economic recovery by providing increased loan funds to
expand investment in industry and create new jobs."

Coming Home
Responding to the media's re-
cent reports of falling immigra-
tion to Israel, 300 future Olim (im-
migrants to Israel recently
gathered at the North American
Aliyah Movement's 1986 Conven-
tion over the weekend of June
20-22 to rally their support for
true Zionist affirmation Aliyah,
the move to Israel. Convening at
the Homowack Hotel, Spring
Glen, N.Y., the attendees repre-
sent the 4,000 plus members of
the North American Aliyah Move-
ment's 48 Aliyah Chugim
(chapters) throughout the United
States and Canada.
In addition to the group support
and technical information that the
North American Aliyah Move-
ment (NAAM) fundamentally pro-
vides, the 300 representatives are
assembling to initiate NAAM's
HOME" which calls on all future
Olim to promote their own Aliyah
decision and plans, nationally as
well as within their own com-
munities, and to promote
widespread Aliyah, the how and
why Israel is THE HOME for
every Jew.
In an era when many American
Jews, as well as Israelis, are
criticizing Israeli society, govern-
ment and economy, NAAM brings
forth the message of David
Levine, director general of the
Aliyah Department of the Jewish
Agency, Israel, calling on
American Jews to help build
Israeli society the way they want
to see it built. Levine made Aliyah
from the United States in 1968.

Movement is a non-partisan
organization whose members hail
from all points along the religious
