Shoshana Cardin to Speak At
Kadima Retreat on August 24
Kadima means "forward," but
this year The Jewish Federation
of South Broward has added two
more dimensions to the
significance of campaign. Onward
... and Upward, signifying the
campaign goals we hope to
achieve. All of this will be address-

Retreat to be held on Sunday,
Aug. 24 when Shoshana Shoubin
Cardin, president of the Council of
Jewish Federations, will be one of
the Scholars in Residence at
Kadima, the annual leadership
strategy seminar for the 1986-87
United Jewish Appeal/South

Dr. Howard Barron, campaign
chairman, said this year's Kadima
retreat, entitled "Onward and Up-
ward Campaign 1987," pro-
mises to be particularly in-
teresting because of the three

"At Kadima, we will explore the
issues that confront world Jewry
in 1987 as well as learn new,
creative strategies from leading
authorities," Dr. Barron said.
"The 1987 campaign promises
to be a great one for us," Dr. Bar-
ron said, "Kadima will set us on
the right course."
Dr. Saul Singer, president of
the Federation, said South
Broward is honored to have
Shoshana Cardin, Steven Schwarz

Documents Show That Waldheim
Controlled Top Nazi War Secrets
Waldheim personally kept under
lock and key the most sensitive
secret documents and papers of
Hitler's army in the Balkans dur-
ing the final year of World War II.
So sensitive were these
documents a record of the
Nazis' secret communications and
order that they were all
destroyed by the Germans prior to
their surrender.
This top secret records-diary
was given into the safe-keeping of
Oberleutnant (First Lieutenant)
Kurt Waldheim according to a
secret duties schedule dated
February 15, 1944 which was
located among captured war
documents stored in the U.S. Na-
tional Archives. The document,
found by World Jewish Congress
researchers, has been transmitted
to the U.S. Justice Department.
The document, labelled
"Geheim" ("secret"), was issued
from the headquarters of the
"High Command of Army Group
E." It set forth changes in the
"work allocation of the High Com-
mand" of this army group.
Among the changes in in-
dividual tasks specified in the
document were those of the "03"
intelligence officer at the High
Command. Waldheim as he
acknowledged to the U.S. Justice
Department in his memo of April
6 was the designated 03 officer.
(As 03, he "was the deputy of
the chief intelligence officer ...
responsible for ail operational in-
telligence and the control of the
intelligence staff." From the
declassified study "German
Military Intelligence" by the U.S.
War Department's Military In-
telligence Division, 1946.)
The document, released recent-
ly, orders an addition to the work
assignment schedule which details
the OS's tasks. Responsibility for
the 'V.S.-Brieftagebuch"
(Records-Diary) is assigned to the
OS according to this document,
which states that the appropriate
notation is to be inserted in the
03's work schedule in the column
prior to where his responsibility
for assessment of the "enemy
situation" is specified.
The "V.S. (verschluss sachen)
Brieftagebuch" were the army's
most sensitive documents kept
"under lock and key" (verschlus
sachen means literally, "locked up
According to the noted historian
Gerald Fleming, (author of
"Hitler and the Final Solution"),
"V.S. contained the record of
secret orders and communications
and were all destroyed by the Ger-
mans: there is no knowledge of
any such record books surviving."
Beyond secret war plans, orders
such as those relating to Jewish
deportations and reprisals were
examples of the kinds of confiden-
tial records held in safe-keeping,
Fleming noted.
The WJC noted that the work
assignment order is in fact con-
firmed by a previously-released
Nazi war document. According to
a December 1, 1943 organiza-
tional chart of Army Group E, the
hand-written notation "V.S.
Brieftageuch" is located beneath
Waldheim's name in the 03
Fleming stressed that respon-
sibility for the V.S. records-diary
was delegated by the High Com-
mand "to the most trusted officer
within intelligence. "These
locked-up secret records-diaries
were so sensitive that a special
controller Regierungsinspektor
(government inspector) used to
check on the way they were locked
away by unexpected visits,"
Fleming pointed out.

Jewish Family Outlook
I Am This Way Because Of You"
By Dr. Clifford S. Golden
As parents we all try to do our best to raise our children. Each
day a parent has to make various decisions regarding his/her
child's welfare. When we are confronted with circumstances of a
particular problem, we give it some thought, consider the alter-
native solutions for our child and ourself, then act by choosing the
"best solution." For example a child may want to remain at a
friend's house beyond the normal curfew time, and we decide that
it is in the child's best interest to demand that he be home the
regular specified time. The "best solution" is often the result of
our parent's attitudes, our own attitudes, and the information we
get from the media including books, radio and television.
Fortunately the parents of today have all kinds of hell in bring-
ing up children. Unlike yesterday's parents who mostly received
information regarding child rearing from their parents, we have
gadgets, how to do books and Liquid Tylenol to get us through the
parenting ritual. There is also disposable diapers, disposable bot-
tles, Sesame Street, and Drs. Seuss, Spock and Freud in our cor-
ner. The process of child rearing today is markedly different than
it was years ago.
As therapists at Jewish Family Service, we often hear young
and middle age adults blame parents for their current emotional
problems and inability to adjust to the stresses of life. The parents
of these adults as well come to us with their "child" statement
that "I am this way because of you." In response to this state-
ment, we say: in every individual's life there comes a time when
he/she must be accountable for her/his own behavior and pro-
blems. This business of passing the buck to father or uncle Harry
is both childlike and non-productive.
We are not suggesting that parenting patterns do not effect
personality or behavior patterns in later life. We are just em-
phasizing the fact that the responsibility for current behavior and
behavior change now rests upon the individual who feels that he
or she has a problem.
Legally, parents are responsible for a child until the ages of 17
or 18 depending where you live. It's time for parents to accept the
fact that you did the best you could at the time, given your alter-
natives. It's also time for everybody above the age of 18 to accept
their responsibility for their own behavior and work toward
change if a problem is acknowledged.
If you have personal or family problems let Jewish Family Ser-
vice counselors help you to resolve them. Call us at: Fort Lauder-
dale 749-1505, Hollywood 966-0956 or Deerfield 427-8508.

to a judge, Degrelle repeated his
allegations (another of which was
that Josef Mengele was a gentle
suul who had been much malign-

the trial on the grounds that he
feared Jews would kidnap him.
Friedman insisted to this
reporter that all she wanted was
for the court's opinion to be car-

AFrie^!!L??gre8S Delightful 'New' Works
By Morris J. Amity
The very same evening Israeli Prime Minister Peres was wing-
ing his way to Morocco, another event of potentially great
significance to Israel's future took place.
On July 21 at Ben Gurion airport, Israel unveiled its brand new
Israeli designed ultra-modern attack aircraft, the Lavi. The
significance of a relatively tiny nation being able to produce a
state of the art fighter lies not only in maintaining the balance of
power in the Middle East into the 21st century, but in establishing
the foundation for Israel becoming a high-technology power. The
boost to Israel's scientific and engineering base should have far
reaching consequences for its future economic well-being.
It was particularly appropriate that the sole American speaker
at the "roll-out" ceremony was Rep. Jack Kemp of New York.
Kemp, a Presidential hopeful, was the original Republican spon-
sor of the legislation which permitted Israel to use some of its
Foreign Military Sales funds from the United States for develop-
ment of the Lavi.
Unlike some recent high-level visitors to Israel who feel con-
strained to display even-handedness in discussing aspects of the
Arab-Israel conflict, Kemp was and has always been unabashedly
pro-Israel. Given his long record of outspoken support, no one
could accuse Kemp of pandering to his audience, when he
declared that "Israel's security depends on Israel's superiority."
At a time when there has been increasing criticism of the Lavi
program from the Pentagon, supporters of the Lavi were
gratified to hear Kemp not only praise the Lavi for its technical
performance, but make clear that any decision whether to go
ahead with full-scale production should be strictly an Israeli one.
Kemp, a former star professional quarterback who was elected
to Congress in 1970, is now ranking Republican on the vital
Foreign Operations Appropriations Committee which sets the
terms and levels of U.S. assistance to Israel. He made the point
that this aid to Israel is "not extending charity", but that "we are
investing our faith and precious resources in a key ally; we are
contributing to a vital defense outpost for the West, just as surely
as our own defense budget is vital to our freedom."
The substance of Kemp's remarks, and the fact that they would
have been exactly the same to a non-Israeli or non-Jewish au-
dience certainly mark him as one of Israel's staunchest sup-
porters in the Congress and on the national political scene.
Also lending weight to this occasion were five other key
members of Congress whose support had been instrumental in the
development of the Lavi Mel Levine of California, Charles
Wilson of Texas, Bob Torricelli of New Jersey, Gary Ackerman of
New York and Larry Smith of Florida.
It is unfortunate that Israel's major technological achievement
had to be the creation of such a lethal weapon of war. But this is a
role which Israel's Arab foes and the Soviet Union which arms
them have forced upon her. European reluctance to sell arms to
Israel, the occasional U.S. suspension of arms shipments, and
denial of the latest technology have made Israel look more to its
own resources. However, future peace in the Middle East will
ultimately depend not on new weapons but on a change in the fun-
damental Arab hostility toward Israel. The Peres visit to Morocco
coinciding with the Lavi roll-out made Kemp's concluding
remarks even more meaningful as he expressed his "deepest wish
that this magnificent aircraft will never have to be used in cam-
bat." To that, we can all say amen.
Smith Forces CDC to Reinstitute
Cruise Ship Inspections
Exactly three months after the
U.S. Center for Disease Control
(CDC) halted all mandatory health
inspections of cruise ships, Con-

CDC continue the inspections.
At Smith's urging, the Health

directs the CDC to "immediately
resume all of its prior activities
with regard to cruise ships."

How delightful to discover, 70
years after his death, two "new"
works by the great Yiddish writer
Sholom Aleichum new, that is ,
for English readers. For bringing
these previously unavailable
works to a wider American au-
dience, translators Aliza Shevrin
and Curt Leviant deserve a great
many thanks.
Sholom Aleichem's very early
novel, The Nightingale, Shevrin
informs us in her insightful in-
troduction, originally appeard in
1886 when its author was only 27
and struggling to come to terms
with both his art and his indentity
as an artist. No wonder then the
The Nightingale focuses on the
life of another young artist, the
feckless cantor, Yosele Solovey.
Is it possible to reconcile
religious piety with artistic
freedom? Or must one choose in-
stead between a life steeped in Or-
thodox custom and one that
follows bonemian ways? The ex-
amples set by Yosele's father, an
impoverished town cantor, and by
the more accomplished cantor
Mitzi, who serves as Yosele's ear-
ly cantor, suggests that art and
religion can mix if one steadfastly
refuses those demons of tempta-
tion wine, women, and money.
But since there would be little
suspense and less story if our hero
followed the straight and narrow
path with nary a detour, one may
easily guess his unhappy fate.
No matter, though, that The
Nightingale's plot can be predic-
table, even at times mechanical.
Enjoy instead the pleasures of
Sholom Aleichem's evocation of
the village Mazepevka and its
vanished way of life. Delight in
the Yiddish master's witty
aphorisms and comic dialogue, so
lovingly captured in Aliza
Shevrin's translation.
But after reading The
Nightingale, you might wonder
how Sholom Aleihem himself
escaped the terrible destiny of his
fictional artist Yosele Solovey.
For a partial answer, turn to Curt
Leviant's translation of For the
Fair: The Autobiography of
Sholom Aleichem.
Originally intended to run to
some ten volumes, Sholom
Aleichem had not yet completed
the third when, in 1916, "the
Angels of Death" claimed him.
Here, in his rememberance of his
first twenty years, we discover
that the author's real-life cast of
family and friends resembled the
poor folk his stories immortalized:
Among others, we meet the
zealous prankster Uncle Nissel
who is forced to flee Russia after
impersonating a police chief; the
"poet" Binyuominson, who sub-
sists on herring and nonstop con-
versation; and a lottery agent who
calculates that in winning the
jackpot, Sholom's father has in-
curred a deficit of seven rubles
and change.
It is a tribute to Sholom
Aleichem's storytelling powers
that at the conclusion of this poig-
nant fragment, the reader yearns
for more. But one's hunger may
be satisfied easily by rereading
Sholom Aleichem's stories, which
may reveal less about the author's
personal history but also display
his talents at their fullest. And we
can look forward to still more
"discoveries" of old works made
new by translators as skilled as
Shevrin and Leviant.

for sanitary conditions aboard
cruise ships," concluded Smith.
"As the nation's largest cruise
ship port, South Florida has a
vested interest in ensuring the
health and safety of its visitors.
The large number of American
tourists traveling abroad these
cruise ships makes such inspec-
tions imperative."

Joining the Club: A History of
Jews and Yale. Dan A. Oren.

Just because you're paranoid,
goes the old saying, doesn't mean
that someone's not following you.
Don't judge a university, goes
the variation on another old say-
ing, by the Hebrew on its seal.
What prompts this wallowing in
old saying is the publication of
Joining the Club which
documents, for the first time,
what many have suspected for a
long time. Namely, that Ivy
League schools, for a good part of
this century, had quotas to limit
the number of Jewish students
they would let in.
The book deals specifically with
the policies of one of those Ivy
League schools, Yale, but, says
author Dan Oren, what took place
at Yale almost certainly took
place also at Harvard, Columbia,
Princeton and others of the
prestigious Eastern universities.
What took place, as Oren shows
in this thoroughly researched
work, is that for almost four
decades, Jews were officially kept
out of Yale while those who were
let in were unofficially kept down.
This at a school which features
Hebrew words on its official seal
and that was founded on the prin-
ciples of "Enlightenment and
And the truth, notes Oren, is
that the philosophy pretty much
held from Yale's founding in 1707
through the end of the 19th cen-
tury. Yale was known for its tradi-
tion of open enrollment and
tolerance, with Jews receiving
equal access to clubs and
classrooms. That, however, was
simply becasue there weren't very
many Jews at Yale,. But with the
mass immigration of Eastern
European Jews at the end of the
19th and beginning of the 20th
centuries, came far greater
numbers of Jews applying to, and
getting into, Yale.
And that proved to be too much
for members of the elite that
made up much of Yale's alumni.
They felt threatened by the rise of
the "alien and unwashed ele-
ment," were concerned about
Yale maintaining itself as "one of
the links in the national chain pro-
tecting the WASP establish-
ment." They insisted that
something had to be done.
The book, in fascinating detail
and in an appealingly anecdotal
style, describes how members of
the Yale alumni got their message
across about what that something
should be. Equally gripping are
specifics of how members of the
Yale administration devised ways
of keeping Jews out, without
anyone knowing that that was
what they were doing.
What they did, beginning in
1923, was set up a Limitation on
Numbers Policy which, while an-
nounced publicly as a measure
aimed at paring total enrollment,
sought, specifically and privately,
to reduce the number of Jewish
students. Under the policy, which
would remain in effect until 1960,
Jewish enrollment at Yale was
deliberately limited to about 10
pecent of the student body.
Just as riveting is Oren's ac-
count of how those Jews who were
let into the student body were

family from the United States

they (were) afraid to come to my

actions that have been happening
in this world recently.

I feel here. I am not afraid to fly to

everyone could understand and
learn more about this land and our
freedom, rather than being afraid.
Come and share it with us.

Future of Chile's Jews Tied to Politics, Economy
Developments worldwide and in
Latin America have focused at-
tention on the right-wing regime
of General Augusto Pinochet in
Chile. First, the democratic
revolution sweeping Latin
America engulfing Chile's three
neighbors, Argentina, Bolivia and
Peru has exposed more clearly
the surviving authoritarian
regimes, notably those in Chile
and Paraguay on the right, Cuba
and Nicaragua on the left. Second,
the fall of autocrats in the Philip-
pines and Haiti has encouraged
those seeking the ouster of Latin
American dictators. And third, re-
cent U.S. policy shifts toward
Chile, including President
Reagan's March 14 message to
Congress in which he condemned
"tyranny in whatever form,
whether of the left or the right,"
U.S. support for a UN Human
Rights Commission resolution
critical of the Pinochet regime,
and a more activist approach by
the new U.S. envoy in Santiago
all augur increased pressure from
Washington for major changes in
Pinochet's governance of the
Chile, an elongated country of
12 million inhabitants sandwiched
between the Andes and the Pacific
Ocean, is the home today of
15,000-25,000 Jews. An accurate
count is difficult because many
Jews are not affiliated with any
religious or communal
In 1970, when Salvador Allende
Gossens, a Marxist, was elected
president, 35,000-40,000 Jews liv-
ed in Chile. Fearful of the political
and economic consequences of
left-wing rule, several thousand
Jews, together with thousands of
other Chileans, fled the country.
Some returned after Allende was
ousted by Pinochet in 1973. while
others who had supported the
Allende regime some 200 Jews
had served in government posts
from 1970 to 1973 left. Among
the latter was Volodya
Teitelbaum, a Marxist theoreti-
cian who now lives in the Soviet
Union and conducts Spanish-
language broadcasts to Chile for
Radio Moscow. In addition to the
population shifts of the 1970s, the
community also suffers from the
ills familiar to many Jewish com-
munities intermarriage,
assimilation, falling birthrate and
The Jewish community in Chile
dates back to the turn of the cen-
tury, when Russian and other
East European immigrants arriv-
ed largely via Argentina. These
were augmented by Sephardic
Jews from the eastern Mediterra-
nean, German and other Central
European Jews fleeing Hitler, and
a small group of Hungarian Jews
who immigrated after the failed
1956 uprising. Most Jews settled
in Santiago, the capital; smaller
numbers went to the resort city of
Vina del Mar, the port of
Valparaiso and a dozen other
cities and towns. There are ex-
cellent Jewish day schools in San-
tiago and Vina del Mar and an im-
pressive network of religious,
fraternal and sports facilities.
These, however, reach only about
30 percent of the Jewish
For a time, the communtiy was
divided by national origin and
religious orientation. Separate
German, Hugarian, Russian and
Sephardic congregations, for ex-
ample, served their respective
constituencies. The arrival of Con-
servative Judaism, centered in the
Latin American Rabbinic
Seminary founded by Rabbi Mar-
shal Meyer in Buenos Aires 25
years ago, generated further in-
tercommunal tension. But these
issues no longer loom large. Na-
tional differences are breaking
down rapidly. What could better
illustrate this than the appoint-
ment of Rabbi Angel Kreiman, the
former rabbi of Circulo Israelita,
the Russian/East European con-
gregation, as the rabbi of the
Sephardic synagogue! Indeed, ac-
cording to Rabbi Kreiman, more
than half his congregants today
are of Ashkenazic origin. Further,
his appointment as Chile's Chief
Rabbi has meant full acceptance
of the Conservative movement.
But now the political upheavals of
the Allende and Pinochet periods
are reflected in the Jewish
No Jewish representative with
whom I met in a recent visit ex-
pressed unqualified support for a
military government or for
restrictions on civil and political
liberties. Nevertheless, serious
differences over appropriate
responses to the current situation
were expressed.
Several asserted that it would
be unwise for the small Jewish
community to become publicly
identified in politics. They believe
it would be a no-win proposition,
doubtless provoking anti-Semitic
forces on one side or the other.
These individuals, whose views
probably reflect those of the ma-
jority, tend to see Chilean politics
as essentially a struggle between
Right and Left. The alternative to
Pinochet, they believe, is less like-
ly to be a democratic centrist
government than turbulence and
instability leading to the re-
establishment of left-wing rule.
They recall that the Chilean Com-
munist Party is one of the best
organized, most powerful and
most rigidly pro-Soviet in the
Western world, and they doubt
that Communists and their sym-
pathizers would participate in a
democratic consensus. Moreover,
these Jewish figures are reluctant
to alienate the Pinochet regime.
The government, in their view,
has permitted freedom of cons-
cience (a long Chilean tradition),
kept open lines of communication
with the Jewish community
(including attendance by govern-
ment figures at High Holy Day
services), and maintained strong
diplomatic ties with Israel. Thus,
despite discomfort with
authoritarian rule, they fear lef-
tist rule even more. They talk
hopefully of a political and
economic situation sufficiently
stable by 1989 to permit the na-
tional elections Pinochet has
An opposing view, expressed by
several other Jewish represen-
tatives, holds that the community
cannot remain indifferent to the
country's volatile political situa-
tion. They note that Catholic and
Methodist leaders, together with
Chief Rabbi Kreiman, have joined
in the human rights struggle
through the Vicaria de la
Solidaridad, a Catholic-based
organization founded in 1973
shortly after Allende's ouster.
(They agree, however, that Rabbi
Kreiman's participation does not
enjoy universal support among
Jews.) They point out that disturb-
ing signs of neo-Nazism and other
forms of anti-Semitism have gone
unchecked by the government. As
an example, they cite the recent
bombing of the home and car of
Amiti Pilowski. A former presi-
dent of the B'nai B'rith Santiago
Lodge, Pilowski has been involved
in interfaith activities with the
Catholic church and has criticized
government excesses. Was the
bombing a specifically anti-
Semitic act, or was it directed at
Pilowski the Pinochet critic and
not Pikowski the Jew? Was the
government involved in the bomb-
ing? There is no agreement within
the community.
Another area of concern is the
Chilean economy. After a period
of growth in the late 1970s, the
economy nosedived in the early
1980s due to lower prices for cop-
per, Chile's primary export, high
interest rates and increasing oil
prices. The recent drop in interest
rates and oil prices has given the
economy a boost, but problems
persist, including widespread
unemployment. Among those hit
have been some Jews. At least
three Santiago congregations now
have lunch programs, each
feeding as many as 60 Jews per
day. The most conservative
estimate of the number of im-
poverished Jews I heard was 10
percent of the community. The
American Jewish Joint Distribu-
tion Committee, which runs
several impressive programs in
Chile, helped establish in 1984 a
Social Welfare Department under
the aegis of the umbrella
Representative Committee of
Jewish Institutions to address the
needs of destitute Jews. As many
as a third of the 1,200 students at
Santiago's Jewish day school
receive full scholarships to enable
them to attend.
The community's future
depends on the political and
economic viability of the country.
If a reasonably stable situation
continues or a democratic alter-
native takes firm root, the great
majority of Chilean Jews will pro-
bably remain in a country that
historically has been relatively
free of anti-Semitism. But if fur-
ther destabilization occurs and
violence increases (in 1984, accor-
ding to Risk International, Chile
had the highest number of ter-
rorist incidents 649 in the
world), leading to a possible left-
wing takeover, Chilean Jews in
large numbers will doubtless seek
to leave. Events in Chile bear
close watching in the coming

1 Wonderf illed West'
Announces Fall Schedule
The "WonderfUled West" will
be the theme of the Jewish
Federation of South Broward's
emphasis on the West Broward
Jewish community in the upcom-
ing year.
And indeed it is! For Jewish
residents of Miramar, Pembroke
Pines, Cooper City, Davie, Rock
Creek and Sunshine Ranches,
West Broward offers a variety of
opportunities to become involved
in Jewish Infrastructure, in-
cluding several synagogues,
Jewish schools, national Jewish
organizations and the Jewish
Community Center, soon-to-be
the focus of Jewish cultural life in
West Broward.
Work has already begun on the
development of educational and
social programs geared specifical-
ly toward the Jewish residents of
West Broward. There will be
ongoing events taking place in the
west to meet the interests and
needs of all ages. David Brown,
1986-87 chairman of the West
Broward Campaign and Leader-
ship Development programs
states that "WonderfUled is
our way of saying that West
Broward has truly become the
place to be for Jewish people in
South Florida."
The upcoming events sponsored
by the Jewish Federation of South
Broward are designed to make it
easy to meet new people. The first
program that will be brought to
the west will be the "Shalom" or
"Welcome" event. The Shalom
events; chaired by Lila Zedeck,
are intended to bring individuals
together. Ms. Zedeck stated that
these events will provide an op-
portunity for people to meet and
socialize with their Jewish
neighbors, learn more about their
Jewish community and have fun in
the process.
Mark your calendars now for
the first "Shalom" kick-off event.
On Saturday, Sept. 13, 8 p.m., the
Jewish Federation will hold an
Israeli-style cafe featuring
delicious Israeli hors d'oeuvres
and drinks. Israeli dancing will be
instructed and led by the interna-
tionally reknowned Yoai Yanich.
In addition, you will be welcom-
ed by Sumner G. Kaye, Executive
Director of the Jewish Federation
of South Broward and Ed Finkels-
tein, Executive Director of the
Jewish Community Center, as
well as other community leaders,
who will discuss the diverse pro-
grams taking place in West
On Oct. 18, 8 p.m., the Young
Couples of South Broward,
chaired by Howard and Sheila
Wacks, will feature guest speaker
Maxine Kronick in a special pro-
gram entitled: "From the Stated

The Young Couples of South
Broward hold educational and
social programs monthly. These
events are geared toward building
social connections among par-
ticipants and heightening the
group's Jewish awareness.
It's true! West Broward is

Israelis Feel More Secure, Confident The Need for Local Anti-
JERUSALEM Israel as a
whole has a markedly more secure
and confident feeling, after Vice
President George Bush's visit
here, than it did before his arrival.
The man who may well be the
next U.S. President and leader of
the free world had been regarded
here with a certain sense of
distance, even trepidation.
Some of the media, and some
pundits, has written that Bush,
while not unfriendly, was less
friendly than other American
leaders and other Presidential
hopefuls towards the Jewish
State. At best, they said, he was
uncaring, indifferent to the uni-
que features of the Jewish
historical experience.
Now, after stripping away all
the pap and pazzaz inevitably pre-
sent in a Vice Presidential visit,
and m Vice Presidential rhetoric,
most Israelis are left with a com-
fortable feeling that Bush follows
what is by now a mainstream
tradition in American government
of regarding Israel as both a
strategic ally and a moral
mainstay for the United States.
His declaration that the
countries were "allies in
sense of the word" and his state-
ment that "many intangible, and
in a sense spiritual, ties" have
developed "a multitude of wordly
bonds" between the U.S. and
Israel, seemed to leave a glow
here. And Israeli leaders, par-
ticularly Deputy Premier Yitzhak

Chiles Schedules Forums on Crack Cocaine
A series of nine community
forums on crack cocaine informa-
tion and education will be held by
U.S. Sen. Lawton Chiles
throughout Florida in the last two
weeks of August.
Chiles said today each of the
meetings will be regional, draw-
ing participants from the ranks of
city and county government,
schools, churches, civic organiza-
tions, drug abuse treatment,
medical, ethnic and minority
groups and business.
The aim, he said, is to set in mo-
tion or to support community con-
cern and response to the new drug
"Crack cocaine is a tidal wave
sweeping over our state," the
senator stated. "Our attention has
been focused primarily on law en-
forcement needs, but there's an
urgency to alert and inform
everyone about the tragic conse-
quences of using crack. We either
get into action or we get washed

Shamir, had made a point of em-
phasizing Bush's personal involve-
ment in the rescue of Ethiopian
Jewry and his long-time interest
in the cause of Soviet Jewry.
Bush for his part visited a Rus-
sian immigrant family and an
Ethiopian absorption center in his
packed, much photographed and
filmed four-day itinerary here
thereby stressing those same
In terms of substantive policies,
the Vice President had no major
pronouncement to make here. But
he pleased his hosts by indicating
that Washington is weighing a
new, more preferred, status for
Israel in the field of military sup-
plies and support. He said at his
press conference recently in
Jerusalem that Israel might in the
future benefit as Australia and
New Zealand enjoy.
He was also at pains to ease re-
cent tensions surrounding the
Pollard spy affair and subsequent
allegations of Israeli technology-
smuggling, which have sullied
relations between the U.S. and
He hoped, he said, that his visit
had had the effect of dispelling
misplaced suspicions here that
some Americans officials were
conducting a vendetta against
On the Palestinian issue,
moreover, Bush was careful not to
step out beyond the Reagan plan
this despite pressures on him by
hardline Palestinian circles in the
West Bank and Gaza.
And he was generous in his
praise of Premier Shimon Peres'
visit to King Hassan of Morocco
last month.
On the debit side in summing up
this visit, there were the failed
hopes that somehow Bush's
presence in the ara could be used
as pivot around which to construct
the long-awaited summit between
Peres and Egyptian President
Hosni Mubarak. Some Israeli of-
ficials believed the summit could
become a threesome, with Bush
But this is apparently not to be,
as Israeli and Egyptian
negotiators still continued in Eilat
to haggle over the finishing
touches to the Taba arbitration
Similarly, the visit was to have
marked a new leap forward in
tourism ties between Israel and
America. But in the event the
tourism pact signed by Bush and
Peres was a largely declaratory
document in part because the
U.S. balks at Israel's continued
imposition of a travel tax upon its
On the credit side, however, the
visit did catalyze the initialling of
an accord on the building of huge
Voice of America transmitters in
the Negev with Washington
pledging that some 50 percent of
all the contracts linked to this
$250 million project will go to
Israeli companies.
Grenade Injures 13 Israelis In Jericho
TEL AVTV (JTA) Thirteen
Israelis from a settlement in nor-
thern Israel on a day sightseeing
visit to Jericho were injured
Thursday (July 24) afternoon
when a grenade was tossed at
them as they were passing
through the West Bank town.
Three persons were reported in
serious condition, while three
others were reported to have sus-
tained moderate wounds. Seven
others were slightly hurt from the
grenade. George Habash's ter-
rorist organization, the Popular
Front for the Liberation of
Palestine, claimed responsibility
for the attack.
The 13 sightseers had stopped
in the center of Jericho to return
bicycles they had rented for a trip
around the town and environs
when a grenade was tossed at
them from a nearby rooftop.
Terrorism Planning
By Congressman Larry Smith
In the past 12 months, the
United State has suffered from an
unprcedented number of terrorist
attacks on Americans traveling
abroad. Innocent people have
been killed, and as a result, many
Americans have opted to stay at
home during their summer
However, as international ter-
rorists have declared war on the
United States, it is only a matter
of time before the battleground
shifts to our country itself.
To address the potential pro-
blem of terrorism at home, last
year I introduced the local Anti-
Terrorism Planning Act. This bill
would authorized the U.S. At-
torney General to make grants to
local governments for the
development and implementation
of innovative anti-terrorism plans.
It limits the initial grants to
localities which contain a concen-
tration of major transportation
and energy facilities.
This legislation was adopted by
the Subcommittee on Crime last
month as part of H.R. 4786, the
Anti-Terrorism Act of 1986. The
language was broadened to allow
every qualified state and local
government to use justice
assistance funds for "developing
and implementing anti-terrorism
plans for deep draft ports, inter-
national airports, and other im-
portant facilities."
Parts of this country may be
vulnerable to terrorist threats
because of the public facilities
they contain. Broward County,
for example, has within a few
miles of each other a major airport
and deep water port, electricity
generators, and storage facilities
for most of the fossil fuels con-
sumed in South Florida.
The need for assistance to
localities that want to del with
potential terrorist threats has
been reinforced by a recent panel
report from the Georgetown

Singles Program That Works
JFS Volunteers Receive Awards
California rabbi, pondering the
steadily expanding number of
single Jews and the lack of effec-
tive means of bringing them,
through a religious door, into the
Jewish community, has reported
that a novel six-year-old program
he started in his synagogue seems
to have produced results.
John Rosove, associate rabbi of
Congregation Sherith Israel,
reported, in a recent issue of
"Journal of Reform Judaism," on
his response to a finding that
more than 40 percent of American
Jews are unmarried and that
many single Jews "feel alienated
from the synagogue."
He said San Francisco has a
preponderance of single persons
and "a dearth of programming
within the Jewish community for
single Jews." After being asked
by his Board of Trustees and his
colleague, Rabbi Martin Weiner,
to act on the problem, Rosove
decided to try a different
"We began a series of monthly
welcoming the Sabbath services
for single Jews, aged 25 to 45,
held at the time of the regular
8:15 p.m. Friday service," with a
second service started at 5:30
p.m. to accommodate the regular
congregation, Rosove said.
A deliberate effort was made to
attract Jews from Orthodox, Con-
servative, Reform and non-
observant backgrounds with
traditionally-oriented services and
"we also developed a tradition of
community singing with guitar ac-
companiment," Rosove stated. At
each service, a sermon was given
on an issue of topical concern.
To avoid reinforcement of the
feeling "of marginality, which
many (singles) have towards the
synagogue and Jewish life,"
singlehood topics were not
discussed. An informal Oneg
Shabbat followed the service and
a discussion "often extending late
into the evening."
Whether the idea, started as an
experiment, would succeed was
unpredictable, Rosove said. "At
first, the new services attracted
some 40 single Jews each month.
Currently, between 400 and 800
attend," he reported.
Rosove declared that he had
sensed "a deep spiritual and
cultural yearning within the single
Jewish population, which was not
being met elsewhere." Therefore,
"we based all our activities" for
the singles around religious and
cultural events. "The growing
positive response substantiates
our original suspicions about what
many single Jews really wanted."
He indicated his belief that
many single Jews attend only
social events but that most do so
"with hesitancy because of their
discomfort with the forced and
superficial atmosphere," seeking
to meet and date Jews but hating
"being looked over as if they were
pieces of meat."
Many congregants, mostly older
married members, indicated op-
position to a separate singles
group but Rosove felt that the
lesson was "knowing that an
established Reform congregation
cared enough to spend time and
money in developing a program
for single Jews inspired even
greater involvement."
Two years ago, an executive
committee was named to develop
a formal infrastructure. The com-
mittee chose "Simcha" as the
name for the singles, developed a
host of subcommittees "and in-
itiated new ideas for programs
and events based on holiday
celebrations and Jewish culture."
These have included a second-
night Passover Seder, a Chanukah
party and dance, a succah-building
party, an annual retreat with
noted scholars-in-residence; Shab-
baton experiences; community
tzedekah projects and formation
of Havura (fellowship) groups.
"Though we consciously avoid-
ed holding strictly social events
out of fear of becoming just
another 'pick-up' scene, the op-
portunity to interact socially is
built into every program" and
while match-making is "not an ex-
plicit intent" of the Simcha pro-
gram, a number of weddings have
occurred between individuals who
have met at Simcha events,
Rosove declared.
He reported that "people from
every walk of life and every con-
ceivable background have become
involved" in the Simcha project.
Included are "Orthodox, Conser-
vative and Reform Jews; Jews
from across the nation and Jews
from Israel, the Middle East, the
Soviet Union, Ethiopia, South
Africa, Europe and Latin
Simcha is now a fully-
recognized auxiliary, with its
president representing it on the

Young Ethiopian Off and Running in Promised Land

Dani Desta, age 16, is one of
many Ethiopian Jews off and run-

Dani, who lives at Kfar Batya,
one of a network of Youth Aliyah
residences for teenagers aided by
American Jews through the
United Jewish Appeal/Federation
Campaign, is one of this country's
exciting new track stars.
He never ran in Ethiopia, which
he left with his parents three
years ago. But he sure runs now

ings 100 kilometers (62 miles) a
"I love running," says Dani, a
tall, lanky, shy youngster. "If I
miss practice during the day, I
can't sleep that night. My body is
used to it and runnng always
makes me feel strong, healthy and
confident about my future."
Dani has entered some major
competitions already. He even
secured a bronze medal for a
third-place finish inlast summer's
Maccabian Games. His forte is the
3,000-meter event, about 1.9
miles, which he already completes
in fewer than nine minutes.
Yitrchak Lev, Kfar Batya's
director, has admonished Dani to
be sure to keep up with his
studies, since there are many un-
foreseen obstacles on the path to
professional athletic success.
Dani admits, "It's hard to
decide which is more important to
me running or schoolwork. I
feel both are important." Like
most Youth Aliyah teenagers, he
has awide range of course. His
favorites are electricity, biology,
computer science and language.
He speaks Tigrit and Amharic,
Ethiopian tongues, Hebrew and
now English.

of the 64 Ethiopian Jews at Kfar

Israel before the devastating

Ethiopia and other sub-Saharan
countries. And he was able to
leave with his parents. He did,
however, face dangers as part of a
persecuted Jewish minority in
Ethiopia, as a traveler to the
Sudan, and for two and a half
years as a refugee in a makeshift
camp in the Sudan. He says he is
fortunate to be in Israel and

FBI Blames Extremists for Anti-Arab Violence
By David Friedman
ficial of the FBI said recently that
the FBI had "suspects in the
case" of Alex Odeh, the West
Coast regional director of the
American-Arab Anti-
Discrimination Committee (ADC),
who was killed by a bomb trip-
wired to the front of his office in
Santa Ana, Calif., last Oct. 11.
But, Oliver Re veil, assistant ex-
ecutive director of the FBI, told
the House Judiciary subcommit-
tee on Criminal Justice, that there
was not enough evidence yet to in-
dict anyone.
While not naming names, Revell
said "Jewish extremist elements"
were responsible for Odeh's death
and possibly a bomb that exploded
outside the ADC's Boston office.
But he stressed that "no par-
ticular group was involved. Revell
told reporters later that "we are
dealing with a very few in-
dividuals who have come together
on an ad hoc basis." He was testi-
fying before the subcommittee's
hearing on an increase in violence
against Arab Americans.
"We are deeply concerned that
the federal investigation of Odeh's
death and the Boston bombing
have not produced a single indict-
ment," Rep. John Conyers (D.,
Mich.) said. But Revell said the
Odeh case has the "highest priori-
ty," and "I truly believe we will
solve it."

kept out of fraternities, clubs,
publications and secret societies
that made up Yale's campus elite
and that did much to determine
campus policy.
Citing example after example,
Oren shows convincingly that the
only way for a Jew to make it at
Yale was to give up all signs of his
Jewishness. Perhaps the saddest
example of that is Dr. Milton
Winternitz, a Jew who transform-
ed the Yale Medical School from a
fourth-rate institution to one of
the nation's best, yet did much to
hide his own Jewish background
and did much to harass those
students who didn't do the same.
Oren provides many such in-
triguing and telling behind-the-
scenes peeks at the personalities
and inner workings of this major
university. Workings it was able
to hide until Oren began snooping
around while working on a
sophomore term paper for the
Jewish history class he was taking
at Yale.
That's right Yale. Oren resear-
ched and wrote the book beginn-
ing while he was an
undergraduate at Yale and conti-
nuing as a student in Yale's
Medical School. Which shows not
only that he's an excellent in-
vestigative reporter and a surpris-
ingly good writer for a chemistry
major, but that he's not short on
guts either. Happily, Oren suf-
fered no ill effects from airing his
alma mater's dirty linen. On the
contrary, he received nothing but
help and support from Yale
That fact, along with the facts
that Jews now make up more than
30 percent of Yale's student body
and that the book was published at
Yale University Press, shows the
truth of yet another variation on
yet another old saying:
You can teach an old university
new tricks.
(Joseph Aaron, editor of the
Chicago JUF NEWS, is a fre-
quent contributor to a number of
Jewish publications around the
Oakar (D., Ohio), charged that
stereotyping by the Administra-
tion, some members of Congress
and especially the media have
created an "anti-Arab hysteria."
James Abourezk, ADC's chair-
man, charged that when Presi-
dent Reagan "demagogues for
three weeks about the murder of
Leon Klinghoffer," who was kill-
ed by Palestinian terrorists
aboard the hijacked Achille Lauro,
"and is absolutely silent about the
murder of Alex Odeh" this "is a
signal that it is alright to this kind
of physical violence" to Arab
David Gordis, executive vice
president of the American Jewish
Committee, stressed that his
organization had condemned
Odeh's murder and has urged the
FBI to find those responsible.
He said that after Odeh's death
there were threats to Jewish
organizations and synagogues in
Orange County where Santa Ana
is located. "The American Jewish
Committee and other Jewish
organizations have attempted to
repair the damage done by the
bombing to relations between
Arab Americans and Jewish
Americans," he said.
The Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith distributed a state-
ment in the hearing room in which
its national director, Nathan
Perlmutter, "deplored ethnically
or racially motivated violence,
harassment or defamation
directed against any group of
Americans." Gordis noted that
the AJCommittee has long work-
ed "to counter ethnic stereotyp-
ing of any and all ethnic groups,
including Arab Americans." But
he stressed that it is not ethnic
stereotyping when any organiza-
tion disagrees "with the merits of
domestic and foreign policy ques-
tions of Arab-Americans." Gordis
warned that any campaign
against stereotyping must not be
used to defame another group or
"It is well-documented that one
of the important policy goals of a
number of Arab American
organizations has been to weaken
American cooperation with an
assistance to Israel," he said. "In
carrying out this campaign, these
organizations have improperly
sought to limit legitimate
statements of positions by casting
doubt on bona fides of Americans,
both Jewish and non-Jewish, who
support Israel."
David Sadd, executive director
of the National Association of
Arab Americans, charged that
Arab Americans have been
prevented from getting their
message to the public because of
threats from Jews which forced
newspapers and radio stations to
reject their advertisements.
Conyer expressed satisfaction
at the appearance of Abourezk,
Sadd and Gordis together before
the subcommittee.
Hyman Bookbinder, the retiring
Washington representative of the
American Jewish Committee,
pointed out that he and other
Jewish leaders and the Arab
Americans have frequently ap-
peared together and discussed
their differences.

Israel's 'Pioneer Kibbutz' Brings Fish to Desert
By Bill Clark
UJA Press Service
There's a cool, sweet and clear
spring gurgling from the desert
floor near here. It creaes a lush
oasis in the midst of barrenness.
Back in 1951, that spring at-
tracted the Israel Defense Forces
to establish an outpost near here
and, six years later, that military
station was converted to a civilian
Through the next three decades,
Kibbutz Yotveta itself became a
fountainhead in the southern
Negev Desert. The idealism, prac-
ticality and sheer inventiveness
of its people has irrigated an
astonishing yield for Israeli
agriculture, Zionist enterprises
and Jewish hopes. That bountiful
harvest continues through this
Yotveta is the type of settle-
ment supported by the United
Jewish Appeal/Federation Cam-
paign that taught the world how
to "make the desert bloom." Ear-
ly pioneers experimenting with
garden vegetables, year-
round sunshine, a few acres of
sand and good water from the spr-
ing launched an agricultural
revolution. Led by Yotveta, Israel
began exporting fresh vegetable
to Europe through the harshest
periods of the northern winter.
"That provided us with a very
(rood income," recalls Yehuda
Wolfson, an original Yotveta set-
tler. "But the competition is never
far behind, and soon enough other
Middle Eastern and North
African countries began develop-
ing their own winter exports. So
we branched into other areas."
Yotveta continues to be a major
exporter of farm produce, with
tons of sweet Galia melons and
mid-winter onions destined each
year for foreign markets. Recent
research has focused on develop-
ing higher quality produce. Today,
Europeans might be able to
choose their agricultural imports
from any of several countries
but Israeli dates from Yotveta are
larger and sweeter, and the kib-
butz's mangoes have better color
and are more luscious.
Desert Miracles Continue
to Develop in Negev
By BUI Clark
UJA Press Service
Fruits of peace now grow inside
Eddi Peretz's greenhouses. They
blossom and ripen beneath the 400
dunams (four million square feet)
of glass roofing scattered at the
kibbutzim and moshavim here in
the Pithat Shalom region of the
northwest Negev Desert.
Pithat Shalom, which means
Gateway to Peace, is the wedge of
Israel squeezed between the Gaza
Strip and the Egyptian Sinai.
Since the 1979 peace accords with
Egypt this region has become
even more important for Israeli
planning. Moshavim here (within
Israel's pre-1967 borders) are
financed by the Jewish Agency
with funds mainly from American
Jews through the United Jewish
Appeal/Federation Campaign.
They are one of Israel's and the
Jewish Agency's high priorities.
To keep a thriving rural popula-
tion in this part of the desert, a
sophisticated type of agriculture
is necessary thus the
greenhouses. Functioning with a
number of other high-tech
agricultural achievements such as
computerized drip irrigation, the
greenhouses represent an im-
pressive saving of the desert's
most vital commodity water.
Prior to all these innovations,
the average farm family in this
part of the Negev require 40,000
cubic meters of irrigation water
per year to produce enough crops
to support itself. Now, with all the
improvements, a family needs on-
ly 1,000 cubic meters of water to
produce the same quantity of
crops. This means that the
region's water allocation makes it
possible to settle 40 times the
number of people in Pithat
Shalom than had been previously
thought possible.
And just in time. Before the
Camp David accords, this part of
Israel had been a remote and dus-
ty wilderness with only a few scat-
tered settlements. But the new
peace brought a substantial influx
of settlers, many of them Jews
who had newly settled in the
Sinai. People in communities such
as Kibbutz Sufa simply packed up
the entire village, moved it back
across the border into Israel, and
set in new roots. Others, such as
Moshav Peri Gan are entirely new
and were build to help accelerate
the population of this vital region.
Today there are 24 settlements in
Pithat Shalom, with more under
Generally, this new Israeli
salient finds peace along the
Egyptian border a great blessing.
"Ah! The peace is excellent," said
Meir Shaham of Moshav Talmei
Yosef, one of the settlements
which had been evacuated from
Sinai and rebuilt in Pithat Shalom.
"Bui "re
Talme Yosef earns its living by
growing vegetables and flowers in
the greenhouses introduced by
Eddi Peretz. Most of its families
are "mixed" marriages one
partner a native Israeli, and one
an immigrant. "There are some
difficulties with export marketing
these days," Shaham admits, "but
we're making a living here. But
we do suffer from this 'cold peace'
with Egypt. Things could be
Similar sentiments are found at
Kibbutz Sufa where the entire
community voted in 1979 to ac-
cept the peace and then move
quietly back into the Negev. The
original Sufa, just two miles from
the Sinai coastal town of Yamit,
was razed and a new village built
five miles within Israel's pre-1967
"We've accepted the situation
well enough," said kibbutz
secretary Udi Vulichman. "We
had two years in which to
evacuate Sinai and build our new
settlement. Everyone was involv-
ed in the effort and, by working
together, it was much easier to ac-
cept psychologically." Today, nor-
malcy has returned to the kibbutz.
A few years have helped ease the
frustrated expectations of a pro-
sperous peace with Egypt.
Settlers here are still uneasy
about the future. Is this truly the
"Gateway to Peace" with Egypt,
or Israel's new frontier bulwark
facing Egypt? Either way, set-
tlers agree, UJA/Federation cam-
paign support is extremely
valuable in helping maintain their
And while politicians decide the
fate of nations, these desert set-
tlements are busy beneath their
glass roofs growing all manner of
fruits, vegetables and flowers.
The best business comes from the
flower export market and par-
ticularly roses. So they fulfill an
ancient prophecy: "The
wilderness and the solitary place
shall be glad; and the desert shall
rejoice, and blossom as the rose
(Isaiah 35:1)."
Shekel to be
Linked To
New Basket
JERUSALEM The govern-
ment decided recently to link the
Shekel to a basket of currencies of
its major international trading
partners instead of solely to the
U.S. Dollar, the current align-
ment. The objective of the new
linkage is to reduce the infla-
tionary impact of the ongoing rise
in the non-Dollar currencies.
The Dollar will comprise 60 per-
cent of the new basket of curren-
cies, while the German Mark will
comprise 20 percent, the British
Pound Sterling 10 percent, and
the French Franc and the
Japanese yen each constituting 10
percent of the basket.
Israel hopes that the new align-
ment will bring inflation down to
below 10 percent a year, as infla-
tion has been partially caused by
the Shekel falling against the non-
Dollar currencies.
Strictly OH*! l"

Israelis know Yotveta for its
superb dairy products. Starting
with two lonely cows a quarter-
century ago, the desert kibbutz
developed a 600-head herd and
produces and ships fine quality
dairy products to markets from
Eilat 30 minutes south of here, all
the way north to Qiryat Shemona,
and provides the kibbutz with its
main source of income.
Yotveta's energy has attracted
several cooperative programs.
The regional council built its head-
quarters here, and the region's
date-growing settlements set up
their cooperative packing house
here. Israel's desert experimental
agriculture station is here too.
Yotveta has a well-respected
ulpan for helping absorb im-
migrants. It built a gasoline ser-
vice station along the main
highway and added a snack bar
which specializes in the kibbutz's
famous dairy products. "And now
we're talking about starting some
light industry, and developing
tourism facilities," Wolfson adds.
This desert kibbutz has also pro-
duced one of the world's foremost
fishermen. But kibbutznik Hillel
Gordon is bringing the fish to the
desert. Setting up a mariculture
facility near the shores of the Gulf
of Eilat, Gordon has become the
first to commercially domesticate
marine fish. A few months ago, he
exported his first quarter-ton
shipment of sea bream a type of
porgy which hauls in four times
the price per pound as common
pond-bred fresh water Ash such as
carp and talapia.
While Gordon sees part of the
future in the depths of his fish
ponds, fellow kibbutnik Dubi
Hellman sees it westward, up in
the Harei Shacharut the Moun-
tains of Dawn where seven
Israeli families are pioneering a
new region with an entirely new
concept in community
Israel has an international
reputation for devising im-
aginative and practical systems of
community organization such as
the kibbutz, the moshav and the
totally pre-planned city. The
"cooperative city" is the latest
Hellaman explains that the
Yotveta-led and UJA/Federation
Campaign-funded project syn-
thesizes several proven ideas.
Like a kibbutz, members share
equally in ownership and manage-
ment, and administration rotates
to avoid a permanent hierarchy.
But unlike the kibbutz, the
cooperative city is in an urban set-
ting, and doesn't require equality
of personal property or income.
And there's greater opportunity
for cultural, religious and lifestyle
"Our problem was to find a way
of settling Jews up in those moun-
tains, of finding a way for im-
migrants to earn a living and live
a normal life," Hellman says.
"Jews are urbanites. You might
find a few idealists willing to live
in isolated agricultural villages,
but these are rare people. Most
Jews prefer cities and towns.
That's what we have to build.
There are settlers up on those
mountains right now building an
entirely new type of community in

Peres Assesses Meeting With Hassan
NEW YORK Israeli Premier
Shimon Peres told a group of
ethnic leaders and journalists
from the United States that his
meeting with King Hassan of
Morocco will enhance the pro-
spects for a more normalized
peace between Egypt and Israel,
it was reported by Lester Pollack,
president of the Jewish Communi-
ty Relations Council of New York,
who with Malcolm Hoenlein,
JCRC executive director, led a
special mission to Israel. The mis-
sion returned to New York this
Peres told the mission par-
ticipants at a 40-minute meeting
in the Prime Minister's office last
month, that "Until now, Egypt
was an orphan in the Middle
East." The meeting with Hassan,
he added, could only serve to im-
prove Egypt's position in the
Arab world and will serve to
negate widespread skepticism
with regard to Israel's ability to
find talking partners among Arab
Peres, Pollack reported, stress-
ed the importance of sharing
Israel's message with the full
spectrum of ethnic groups in the
United States. In the discussion
that followed, the Prime Minister
touched on a number of sensitive
issues raised by the American
On Israel's relationship with
South Africa, Peres underscored
Israel's long-standing position
that it could never accept apar-
theid and condemned all forms of
racism and bigotry. However,

the United Jewish Appeal: (left), Martin
Stein, National Campaign Chairman-UJA

dent of the Jewish Federation of South

tional Vice Chairman-UJA.
Peres explained, that among the
reasons Jerusalem does not ter-
minate diplomatic relations with
Pretoria is Israel's interest in pro-
tecting the small but significant
Jewish community in South
Peres went on to assert that
Israel's trade with South Africa,
largely in coal and diamonds,
totals less than one percent an-
nually of Israel's foreign trade.
He also categorically denied that
Israel has any military ties with
the regime in Pretoria.
On other foreign policy issues,
the Prime Minister was hopeful
that diplomatic relations will be
established with the People's
Republic of China. He cited the
Chinese for their identification
with strong family and educa-
tional values and their
Peres also noted that Italian
Prime Minister Bettino Cnuti has
reversed his favorable opinions of
the PLO over the past few months
in the wake of Jordan's brak with
the terrorist group. Peres said
that Craxi "is ready to be in-
strumental" in his proposed
economic plan for the Middle East
in an effort to avert fiscal disaster
in such countries as Egyupt and
Jordan "before they become like
Much closer to home, Peres
asserted that Syria's role in inter-
national terror is more subtle than
Libyan involvement but no less ac-
tive. "They are more prudent
than they have been in the past,"
Peres stated, "but if they can get
away with it they will do it."
Pollack congratulated Peres on
his historic visit to Morocco and
thanked him for being so generous
with his time as well as his will-
ingness to answer the group's
"The elusive peace which Israel
has sought for nearly four decades
will only come when the surroun-
ding Arab states recognize the
legitimacy of Israel's right to exist
as a nation among nations," Pol-
lack stated. "Your meeting with
King Hassan, we hope, will act as
a catalyst for similar ventures
with Jordan's King Hussein and
other Arab leaders in the near
future," he added. Among those
in attendance at the meeting

Mr. Jack Gordon, a resident at The Lafayette, Forum Group's

ple is to have to put a large sum of money up front to move into a
retirement community. Here, we're on a strictly rental basis. That's
the big attraction, we can earn interestup to $6000 a yearon the
money we would have to pay to buy a place, at some other community."

Washington and Jerusalem A $27 Billion Bargain

Notebook, Wolf Blitzer. Ox-

Any writer who can convincing-
ly demonstrate that an expen-
diture of $27 -billion (that's
BILLION) is a "metaah" a
bargain has indeed turned out a
book deserving of the most
meticulous reading, especially
since this is fact and not fiction.
That's exactly what Reporter-
turned-Author Wolf Blitzer has
done in this incisive look at the
sometimes puzzling, always com-
plicated relations between the
United States and Israel.
Calling on an almost unique
frame of reference developed in
his many years as the highly
respected Washington correspon-
dent for the Jerusalem Post,
Blitzer has written an infor-
mative, useful book that should be
siuuieu aptMeciMteu uy douj
Jews and non-Jews.
It is no exaggeration to classify
Between Washington and
Jerusalem as the definitive book
on a subject that all too often has
been handled cavalierly by an un-
caring, uninformed corps of
writers. It is written as a good
reporter should write objective-
ly and devoid of sensationalism. It
encompasses the factors that have
tied Israel to this country since its
painful birth in 1948.
Blitzer describes not only what
happened but why. He takes us
behind the scenes in the trying
periods prior to Israel's major
wars. We're right there as he in-
terviews presidents and con-
gressmen, cabinet members and
visiting statesmen. He explains
without being didactic.
But even as he goes from topic
to topic, from Presidents Truman
through Reagan, from peace plans
to the perplexing Palestinian
situation, from arms deals to con-
gressional debates, he makes clear
that the pervasive theme affecting
virtually every action of the

Jewish Family Outlook
Being Able To Say No-Without Guilt
Social Scientists tell us that children begin to say "NO" bet-
ween Vh and 2 years of age. Parents teach their children when
and where "NO" will be accepted and in what situation that
"NO" never comes. When a person is unable to respond with
"NO" much of the time in regard to things he does not want to do,
he is doomed to self anger and depression.
Unfortunately, people package saying "NO" together with re-
jection of love and friendship. This is not always the case. If a
neighbor asks you to give her a lift to Publix, and are going in the
opposite direction, you have the right to say "NO." If a Wend
wants to borrow a book that you are reading, you can say "NO.
If your spouse wants you to do everything he wants to do, you can
say "NO."
When we feel good about ourselves we are able to say "NO"
without feeling guilty. When we feel good about ourselves we are
able to help others realize that when we say "NO" it does not
mean that our friendship is on the line or that we are withdrawing
our love. Saying "NO" means we have our own value system, self
respect and love for ourselves.
If after reading this article you are still not sure about whether
or not you can say "NO"pleaae mail me ten dollars and I will send
you a receipt as soon as possible.
If you feel that you are unable to send the money, but you still
have a problem saying "NO" call Jewish Family Service of

United States vis-a-vis Israel is
how to maintain strong ties with
Israel while at the same time
developing equally strong rela-
tions with the oil-rich Arab states.
And while the author does not say
so in so many words, the wonder
of it all is the fact that Uncle Sam
has not slipped off the tightrope
more often than he has.
Names that have been in the na-
tional and international news for
decades are interwoven in this
timely report and while Blitzer
reaffirms the friendly attitude of
such officials as the late Senators
Henry Jackson and Hubert H.
Humphrey and the questionable
tactics of the Arab-leaning State
Department, he commendably
avoids labeling major figures as
"good" or "bad," but rather
shows both sides of human nature.
For example, President
Reagan. His relations to Israel,
says Blitzer, "are defined by con-
Mrs Ruth Teich
Mrs Ruth Teich, president of
the South Broward Chapter of
Women's Division of American
Society for Technion, died here
July 25.
Mrs. Teich, who was president
for ten years, was known for her
outstanding educational and fund-
raising efforts in behalf of Tech-
nion which serves as Israel's
primary academic resource for ad-
vanced technological teaching and
Mrs. Teich, who was a concert
pianist, was a graduate of the
Juillard School of Music in New
York and the Curtis Institute of
Music in Philadelphia.
A native of New Rochelle, N.Y.,
Mrs. Teich made numerous con-
cert appearances at Town Hall,
New York, and throughout
Westchester County, N.Y. Radio
recognized her keyboard artistry
and she had her own weekly
15-minute all-classical program in
New York.
tradiction ... his gut instincts are
extremely pro-Israel and he has
demonstrated he is prepared to
risk upsetting the Arabs." Yet,
there was Bitburg and even
earlier, a reneging of his 1980
campaign promise when, despite
vowing no betrayal of old friends
and allies, he pushed for the sale
of AWACs to Saudi Arabia, he
suspended arms delivery to Israel,
and he invoked of dual loyalty of
American Jews.
Kissinger is equally com
plicated. He, too, was willing tc
provide arms to Arabs but he
unalterably opposed an indepen-
dent Palestine state on the West
Bank and Gaza.
And yes that $27 billion dollar
bargain! That's how much money
in loans and grants the United
States has given Israel since 1948.
But balance that figure with the
estimated $50 billion to $80 billion
that the United States spends AN-
NUALLY to support NATO in
Western Europe. Balance that
with the fact that while the United
States must maintain 30,000
troops in Western Europe and
150,000 troops in the Far East, it
has only a handful of advisors in
the Middle East where it relies on
the strong Israeli armed forces.
Blitzer leaves no doubt that
regardless of confrontations and
an occasional spy scandal, rela-
tions between Washington and
Jerusalem will remain fair and
firm for the best of reasons
each country needs and depends
upon the other.
