Israel, Egypt, Jordan Meet Possible
A "three-way summit"
meeting between Israel,
Egypt and Jordan was
described as "possible" by a
top aide to Premier Yitzhak
Shamir following Shamir's
meeting Thursday (Jan. 8)
with U.S. Assistant
Secretary of State Richard
Murphy who arrived from
Jordan, Israel Radio
The radio report quoted a
remark by Yoeef Ben-Aharon,
director general of the Prime
Minister's Office, in a television
interview taped for broadcast
Thursday evening.
ACCORDING to the report,
Ben-Aharon said "It is possible to
expect a three-way summit bet-
ween Premier Shamir, the Presi-
dent of Egypt (Hosni Mubarak)
and King Hussein" (of Jordan).
He said the meeting would be held
"in Aqaba (Jordan) or El Arish"
in Egypt
Ben-Aharon was also quoted as
saying that Shamir would meet
shortly with Palestinian leaders in
the West Bank to urge them t<>
form a delegation for peace talks
with Israel and Jordan.
Murphy, who is Assistant
Secretary for Near Eastern and
South Asian Affairs and the State
Department's leading expert on
the Middle East, is on his first
visit to the region since last
September. His mission has been
described as exploratory, to see
how the stalled peace process
could be advanced. But American
diplomats have cautioned against
expectations of a breakthrough at
this time.
MURPHY scheduled meetings
with Vice Premier and Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres and
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin
left for Cairo Friday.
In Amman Wednesday (Jan. 7),
Murphy indicated that the U.S.
does not favor a joint preparatory
committee for an international
conference on Middle East peace.

O'Connor Visibly Angered
By American Jewry's
Statement on His Trip
John Cardinal O'Connor
was taken aback and visibly
angered Sunday by a state-
ment sharply critical of his
conduct and remarks during
his visit to Israel and Jordan
last week. The statement,
which expressed disquiet
and distress about some of
his remarks, was released
It was signed by the leaders of
53 major American Jewish
groups, including community, rab-
binical, Zionist and fund-raising
O'Connor, the Archbishop of
New York, told reporters after
conducting Sunday Mass at St.
Patrick's Cathedral, that he
feared the "fruits" of his trip and
his meetings afterwards at the
Vatican could be "destroyed" by
the response of the Jewish
HE EXPRESSED "deep, deep
disappointment" at the state-
ment. "I hope there is nothing in
that statement that will make it
more difficult than it has been for
me in trying to support the Jewish
cause," he said.
He described his trip to the Mid-
dle East as the most difficult he
ever made, one that involved
"great personal and professional
risk." He went to Israel "in good
faith," the Cardinal said.
The trip was fraught with con-
troversy and embarrassment. The
Cardinal was forced to cancel ap-
pointments he had made with
Israeli leaders because Vatican
policy which does not recognize
the status of Jerusalem as Israel's
capital, forbade him to meet with
them at their offices in Jerusalem.
He did meet, however, with
President Chaim Herzog at the
Presidential residence in
Jerusalem and with Vice Premier
and Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres at the latter's home.
THE CARDINAL apologized
profusely during his trip for any
offense he might have given the
Israeli people and their leaders
and faulted himself for failing to
recognize the ramifications of the
constraints placed upon his
movements by Vatican policy.
The Jewish leaders said in their
statement that they were "dis-
quieted and distressed" by
remarks made by O'Connor sym-
pathetic to the Palestinians and
that they "found disturbing and
painful" his statement at the Yad
Vashem Holocaust Memorial in
Jerusalem that the Holocaust
"may be an enormous gift that
Judaism has given the world."
O'Connor was particularly
stung by the latter criticism. He
said he meant it as "an enormous
compliment to the Jewish people
... If this is considered demean-
ing to the Holocaust, then it de-
means my entire theology because
mine is a theology of suffering,"
he said.
HE ALSO said that the compas-
sion he expressed when visiting a
Palestinian refugee camp in Gaza
was not meant as an indictment of
Israel. "I said repeatedly that this
was not to be blamed on Israel,"
the Cardinal declared, adding that
the blame rests on the entire Mid-
dle East. Both Arabs and Jews
are "involved and responsible."
The Israel government promptly
dissociated itself from the state-
ment by the Jewish leaders.
Barukh Binah, press spokesman
Cor trie Israel Consulate in New
York said Sunday that "It was an
American response and not an
Israeli response."
The statement acknowledged
that the Cardinal has been an
outspoken foe of anti-Semitism
and a strong supporter of Jewish
causes, particularly the struggle
of Soviet Jews for civil rights and
the right to emigrate.
O'Connor, however, saw the
statement as a whole as amoun-
ting "to a unilateral censure,
which I do not appreciate and
which makes it difficult for me to
move farther toward peace.
Serious damage could be done if
this line is pursued," he said.
IRONICALLY, O'Connor last
week sent flowers to Israel's Con-
sul General in New York, Moshe
Yegar, thanking the Israeli of-
ficial for having helped arrange
his trip to Israel. The Archbishop
sent the flowers upon his arrival
in Rome through his New York
A handwritten letter by O'Con-
nor accompanied the flowers sent
"in gratitude for your wonderful
assistance" in arranging the
Israel visit. Yegar was instrumen-
tal in arranging the details of the
Cardinal's trip from the
Cardinal John O'Connor meets with
Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek in Jerusalem
during the Cardinal's visit to Israel last week.
But O'Connor specifically refused to go on a
AP/Wide World Photo
guided tour with the Mayor on the ground that
it would constitute Vatican acknowledgement
of Jerusalem as Israel's capital city. AP/Wide
According to an Israeli official
here, O'Connor's aides kept
Yegar regularly informed
throughout the Cardinal's stay in
the Mideast "The flowers and the
letter to Yegar are a clear sign
that the Cardinal came out from
his visit to Israel with a good feel-
ing," the Israeli official said.
Vatican Careful
No Modofication on 'Prerequisites' for Recognition
Vatican is taking pains to
allay any notion that the
visit to Israel by John Car-
dinal O'Connor, the Ar-
chbishop of New York, in-
dicates a modification of the
"prerequisites" it has set
for establishing diplomatic
relations with the Jewish
O'Connor, who arrived here
last Tuesday (Jan. 6) from Israel,
said he encountered not the
"slightest evidence of
displeasure" by the Holy See over
his trip and the fact that he met
with two Israeli leaders, Presi-
dent Chaim Herzog and Vice
Premier and Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres, at their homes in
VATICAN spokesman Joaquin
Navarro Vails issued a statement
to the press last Wednesday
noting that Pope Paul VI met with
Golda Meir in 1964, and Pope
John Paul II met with Peres in
"The State of Israel or its
sovereignty is not at issue," he
"As is known, the issue regards
the status of the city of Jerusalem,
the problem of the occupied ter-
ritories and the Palestinian issue.
I think the acts of courtesy of Car-
dinal O'Connor do not involve
these problems which must be
solved in appropriate
Journalists were reminded that
the contents of Pope John Paul
IPs Apostolic Letter on Jerusalem
of April 20, 1984, are still valid.
THE LETTER stated: "I am
convinced the failure to find an
adequate solution to the question
of Jerusalem and the ...
postponement of the problem, on-
ly compromise the longed-for
peaceful and just settlement of the
crisis of the whole Middle East."
The letter called for the applica-
tion of "special status" to "not on-
ly the monuments of the sacred
places, but the whole historical
Jerusalem and the existence of
religious communities, their situa-
tion and future" which "cannot
but affect everyone and interest
A month before that letter was
issued, the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency was given a background
briefing by a ranking official of
the Roman Curia. The official said
that one of the primary concerns
of the Holy See was that each
religious community receive
guarantees for complete freedom
to develop and grow physically
and economically, including rights
of ownership, investments and the
possibility of urban expansion.
The official said the Vatican
sought a 'three-fold agreement
between Jewish, Christian and
Islamic authorities" in Jerusalem
because Israel's guarantees alone
were not sufficient. They had to
be of an international character,
he said.
THE VATICAN'S second de-
mand, creation of "a homeland for
the Palestinian people," is con-
tained in all of its documents
relating to the Middle East. The
Vatican perceives this to be inex-
tricably tied to "the necessity of
simultaneously guaranteeing the
security of all peoples in the
The Pope told the international
diplomatic corps accredited to the
Vatican on January 14, 1984 that
these principles imply a com-
prehensive peace treaty for the
area. They are the only conditions
under which the Vatican would
establish diplomatic relations with
Israel, formalizing what already
exists on an "unofficial" level.

What ItTatesTb Be
A Riverside
It takes years.
It took nearly 60 years to
build trust in a name. It took
leadership who helped set the
standards for Jewish funeral service
decades ago. Throughout the
years leaders such as Charles
Rosenthal and Carl Grossberg
exemplified their belief that Jewish
funeral service is not merely a
business, but a solemn trust held
by funeral directors on behalf
of the families they serve.
Today the
Riverside tradi-
tion continues
under the
leadership of Kenneth J. Lassman
and a new generation of caring
managers. And today the name
Riverside, nurtured through six
decades, remains the most
respected name in Jewish funeral
service in the world.

President Reagan
Unfurls His Defense
The powers that be in Jerusalem may well
have cause to be concerned now that the
White House has gone public with two
memoranda one having to do with Presi-
dent Reagan's January 17, 1986 authoriza-
tion of clandestine operations by the United
States with respect to Iran; the second, a
document in the form of a brief memo to the
President by Admiral John Poindexter.who
was at the time National Security Adviser,
in which Poindexter referred to "a plan by
which Israel .. can create conditions to
help bring about a more moderate govern-
ment in Iran."
It is difficult to tell which is more damag-
ing to Israel. Reckoned in these terms,
perhaps neither is as bad as what both
together produced a media report the day
before the two memoranda were revealed by
the White House which stated that Reagan
had been told as late as last September that
Israel was shipping arms to the Contras.
The source, according to the report, was
American intelligence, hence placing the
alleged Israeli shipments in the clandestine
category. It does not matter that not even
President Reagan is purported to have
known about the Israeli connection until he
was filled in on the intelligence reports on
the eve of his Sept. 30 meeting with then-
Prime Minister Peres.
Sudden Candor
More significant is that the Administra-
tion's intent now is to go scapegoat-hunting.
All of this sudden White House candor ap-
pears to have as its purpose to shove the
burden from the shoulders of the President
where it frankly belongs onto Israel.
Indeed, there is something in the maneuver
that reminds us of a petulant child who,
when caught after having misbehaved,
ruefully blames someone else with the plea,
"He made me do it."
Can anyone honestly picture Israel mak-
ing the Administration do anything the Ad-
ministration didn't want to do?
Beyond these matters, a sadder issue yet
is the seeming schizophrenia in the Ad-
ministration's scapegoat-hunting, par-
ticularly in the assurance voiced Monday by
U.S. Ambassdor Thomas Pickering to Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir that the White
House's release of the two memoranda did
not mean to carry with it any intention to
cast blame on Israel. Said an Administration
official who reported Pickering's assurance:
"We wanted to explain the background, to
tell the Israelis, we definitely did not intend
to cast aspersions."
Will Shultz Resign?
If ail of this nonsense adds up to anything
coherent so far, it is that the Aciministra-
tion's backstage maneuverings after all of
its clandestine and perhaps even illegal
operations may well mean the impending
resignation of Secretary of State George
Shultz, together with Secretary of
Defense Caspar Weinberger, is said to have
opposed the Iran operation from the beginn-
ing of his learning about it. There is some
variance at question as to iust when Shultz
did find out about the Poindexter-Col. Oliver
North (another now-ousted National Securi-
ty Council aide) scheme.
Apart from this, Shultz is one of the few
< South
inside Administration officials close to the
President who can honestly say that not only
did some of the Reaganites circumvent
State Department powers by carrying out
foreign policy maneuvers without letting the
Congress know about them but by cir-
cumventing what may well be the law, as
Because the White House memoranda
were made public last week when Shultz was
6,000 miles away in Africa, the offense to
him may now appear to be redoubled and his
impulse to resign overwhelming.
And that would be a pity of enormous
Martin Luther King
Monday, Jan. 19 is a day in our national
consciousness that will focus on Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr., the internationally
revered black civil rights leader who strove
to achieve through peaceful means the
liberation of all people from bigotry and the
agony of discrimination.
There is little doubt that Dr. King had his
black brothers and sisters dominantly in his
mind. But there is also clear evidence that
he set himself apart as the enemy of racism
and prejudice of every kind.
In this enlightened approach to the family
of humankind, he rose rapidly as the
spokesman for tolerance and mutal respect
among all people. In this context, he once
said, "Through our scientific genius, we
have made of our nation and even of the
world a neighborhood, but we have failed
to employ our moral and spiritual genius to
make of it a brotherhood.
It is painfully tragic that such a man as Dr.
King, imbued as he was with the principles
of Ghandi's satyagraha the force of love
should have had his life snuffed out in the
prime of his power of peaceful persuasion by
the force of an assassm's bullet.
In honoring Dr. King on Monday, we will
be saying as a nation that was blessed by the
presence of such a son among its people that
his force of love has not been forgotten.
That it will yet inspire us again and again to
the achievement of his dream.

The urgent need
for North American aliya
and the problems of Soviet
Jewish emigration and drop-
outs (neshira) dominated
the opening session of the
First Zionist Assembly
Leon Dulzin, chairman of the
World Zionist Organization and
Jewish Agency Executives, and
Israeli Deputy Prime Minister
David Levy addressed about 1,000
delegates of American Zionist
organizations, youth movements
and aliya support groups atten-
ding the convention organized by
the American Zionist Federation.
Highlight of the opening session
was a live satellite broadcast by
Israeli President Chaim Herzog
from the presidential residence in
HERZOG, who answered ques-
tions from the delegates over the
phone, quipped: "The fact that
your opening plenary session is
devoted entirely to aliya is no less
than a landmark in American
Zionist history. I would even dare
to suggest that the Shehecheyanu
blessing would be appropriate."
Herzog reminded the assembly
that not long ago, the subject of
aliya was taboo at Jewish gather-
ings in the "affluent diaspora."
He called on Zionists to come to
Israel, not only for the benefit of
the State, but for their own per-
sonal growth. "Aliya is moat
precious when it is a response to
the ideal of Zion rather than to
brutal necessity ... We need you
and we know how much you can
mean to democracy in Israel. But
your olim will not only give, they
will surely also receive.
Levy echoed Herzog's call in a
passionate speech delivered in
Hebrew with a simultaneous
English translation. "The essence
of Zionism is the return to Zion. A
free people in its own country,
master of its destiny." Levy sug-
gested that Zionists have divided
into two camps, one in Israel and
one in the diaspora and Uaa divi

dressed the problems of Soviet
Jewish emigration and neshira, or
Soviet Jews who choose to settle
in the U.S. instead of Israel.
"The issue of Soviet Jewry must
be raised constantly by the Zionist
movement, by the State of Israel
and by Jewish communities
everywhere." He noted that the
Soviet government's oppressive
emigration policies are not the on-
lv cause for the plight of Soviet
Jews. Those Soviet Jews who do
receive exit visas but choose to
settle in America are hurting the
struggle for freedom im-
measurably, he said. "Ntthira
should be condemned in the
strongest terms as should all the
organizations that assist them.
Soviet Jews are not refugees.
Neshira undermines the effort to
open the gates of the Soviet Union
and provides the Soviet Union
with an excuse not to open them."
Dulzin also pointed out that
assimilation of Jews in the
diaspora and decreasing birth
rates are the biggest threats to
Jewish existence. "One of the
most serious problems of our time
is the safeguarding of our people's
national existence," Dulzin told
the assembly.
Regarding the plight of Jews in
Syria and Ethiopia, Dulzin
declared: "Securing their release
is the historic mission of our
Herzog, responding to one of
several questions from the youth
movement delegates over the
phone, also discussed the pro-
blems of Soviet Jewry.
"THE PRESSURE Israel can
bring from an international point
of view is very limited. We are not
a major power or an important
power. We can do our best with
feeling. When it comes to
pressure, this must be the duty of
the diaspora Jewry and in par-
ticular of American Jewry. It is
the Western world in the final
analysis that can bring about a
Levy said the two major pro-
blems facing the Zionist move-
ment are yerida, the massive im-
migration of Israelis to the West,
and assimilation. It is paradoxical
that Jews survived centuries of
oppression but that in this era of
wealth and equality, Jews are
assimilating and disappearing.
Levy said.
Herzog was also questioned on
the tensions between Orthodox
extremists and non-Orthodox in
Israel. This is the moat serious
problem Israel faces today, he
"I would say that the source of
many of these problems lies in the
United States, in the American
Jewish community ... But I have
to emphasize here again that
many of the peripheral problems
that we have, racist problems, ex-
treme fanatical forms of Or-
thodoxy that really do not
recogniae the State of Israel,
these are problems that have
come from the United States and
are incidentally to this day funded
from the United States."

Historian Publicizes
Ida Nuclei's Appeal to West
An appeal to the West by
refusenik Ida Nudel has
been publicized by British
historian Martin Gilbert.
Gilbert, who campaigns
worldwide on behalf of
Soviet Jews and has written
several books about them,
wrote a letter on Nudel's
behalf for the Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews.
Gilbert read this letter, which
includes Nudel's appeal for
freedom, at a gathering in Tel
Aviv on Dec. 25 commemorating
Prisoners of Conscience Day. At
that time, Gilbert and Natan
Sharansky placed a phone call to a
Moscow apartment in which
refuseniks and former Prisoners
of Conscience were gathered to
discuss their present situation in
light of the pardon of Andrei
and spokeperson for human rights
and Jewish refuseniks and
prisoners was allowed to leave his
six-year exile in the closed city of
Gorky and return to Moscow with
his wife, Yelena Bonner, who was
also pardoned. Nudel is exiled-to
the closed city of Bendery.
"With the return of Academi-
cian Sakharov from Gorky to
Moscow," Gilbert wrote, "a

Shamir Due To Meet
With Reagan in D.C.
NEW YORK (JTA) Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir is scheduled to meet President Reagan Feb. 17 at
the White House, a spokesman for the Israeli Consulate
here said Monday.
ACCORDING TO the spokesman, Shamir will arrive in
New York Feb. 15 to begin a 10-day U.S. visit with
meetings and appearances in New York, Washington, Los
Angeles and Houston. The spokesman stressed, nowever,
that the Premier's itinerary is not complete and many
changes are likely to take place.
The main topic of discussion between Reagan and
Shamir will be American-Israeli relations, the spokesman
ASKED IF the Iran arms sales crisis will figure in the
talks between the two leaders, the spokesman said: "Israel
has aleady made its position known and said all it had to say
on the issue."
Shamir's upcoming state visit is his*first since he
assumed the Premiership last October, replacing Shimon
Peres, now Israel's Foreign Minister, under the terms of
the rotation agreement. Shamir last visited the U.S. as
Israel's Foreign Minister last September.
spokesman for human rights has
been allowed home. Jews
throughout the world recall with
gratitude his long and outspoken
championship of the right of the
Jews of Russia to be reunited with
their people in Israel...
"Academician Sakharov returns
to Moscow, but one of those Jews
on whose behalf he many times
protested, remains in enforced ex-
ile in southern Russia, in the
remote town of Bendery ... Ida
Nudel .. first applied to leave
Russia for Israel in the very year,
1971, in which Sakharov set up his
Human Rights Committee."
Nudel's letter of appeal she
"writes of that festive moment
when the people of Israel, and
Jewish throughout the world,
light the candles which symbolize
the resistance of the Maccabees."
Nudel wrote: "Remember those
who are so far off, so isolated by
distance and hostility .. whose
life is being destroyed now in
punishment cells, half hungry,
half getting frozen for no crime at
all, but only for being a Jew.
Remember those who, despite
persecutions and harassment, will
celebrate our holiday, who will
light up candles, who will tell their
children about the history and
dignity of the people they belong
Gilbert, writing from Oxford
University, asked, "Is it beyond
the ability of the Western world to
end her 16-year separation from
the Jewish State, to enable her to
light the candles of freedom next
year at her sister's side?"

Volunteers For Israel
It's one way to see Israel, but certainly not the most
usual. A program called Volunteers for Israel, in its fourth
year, arranges for U.S. residents to spend three weeks in
Israel, replacing an Israeli reservationist who could
therefore remain in his civilian job.
Groups of about 30 volunteers rangmg in age from 17 to
65, eat, sleep and work at various military bases and have
specially-arranged day-long trips around the country. The
cost is about $600, and that includes round trip airfare from
JFK in New York aboard El Al to Israel. Meals and housing
and uniforms are provided.
Each volunteer relieves one reserve soldier and saves the
Israeli economy about $600 per reservist, according to of-
ficials of the program, which has sent over 3,400 American
volunteers to the Holy Land since the program was
The Volunteers, according to one report, are doing
everything from putting new bolts into the undercarriage
of a captured Soviet T-54 to peeling potatoes and scrubbing

Too Early To Tell
Will BB Vote for Woman President?
How can an American
Jewish woman lead a power-
ful international organiza-
tion to which technically she
doesn't belong? She can join
a local co-ed B'nai B'rith
unit in the United States
and get elected president of
B'nai B'rith International.
BBI, the worldwide service and
activist organization for men in
the United States and both sexes
abroad, decided last August to
open its American doors to
women, although not as wide as
some men had hoped. B'nai B'rith
Women approved the same plan
at its convention in March.
The new plan, hashed out by a
joint blue ribbon committee,
declares immediately that "For
women in the United States B'nai
B'rith Women is the only vehicle
for membership in B'nai B'rith."
HOWEVER, female members
of the units may hold office above
the local level either in BBI or
BBW, although not simultaneous-
ly. Men who belong to units can't
hold office in BBW, but they can
in BBI and can vote at BBW
It's too early to determine
which leadership ladders women
will hope to climb, said Jeff Katz,
BBI membership director,
because for the BBI district and
international levels won't take
place until summer. So far, he
noted, about a third of the 150
units have female presidents.
About 10 American women serve
on district boards of governors.
Non-American women already
seek high office within BBI, ex-
plained BBI President Seymour
Reich. At the August convention,
Sylvia Lewin, president of B'nai
B'rith District 15 in Great Britain,
placed second in an election with
two men for senior international
vice president. In Israel, Pnina
Bor is president of District 14, he
And some day, a woman may
seek the presidency. "I'd love to
see it happen," Reich said.
units fall under BBI, according to
Katz, although he added that "the
women will become more involv-
ed." Unit female members' dues
are sent to BBW, men's to BBI.
The new plan also calls for the
formation of a Joint Executive
Council, composed equally of
16-20 men and women, to plan
and coordinate the organizations'
cooperative efforts and discuss
the possibility of joint
This co-ed idea isn't new. As
B'nai B'rith outside the U.S.,
American women since 1971 have
been permitted to form local B'nai
B'rith units with men. For men
only, there are B'nai B'rith
lodges. For women only, there
still are the BBW chapters.
Approximately 13,300 men and
women belong to the 150 units in
the United States, according to
Katz, and another 50 units are in
formation. Total BBW chapter
membership in the U.S. and
Canada is 120,000, while
150,000 men belong to BBI lodges
in the United States.
There would be only one mean-
ingful membership figure to
report had the joint BBI-BBW
blue-ribbon committee agreed on
the proposal that brought it
international convention had ap-
proved a resolution mandating the
formation of a special planning
committee, with the possible
cooperation of BBW, "to develop
a plan for full and equal member-
ship for women in B'nai
B'rith..." In other words, the
men wanted women to be permit-
ted to join B'nai B'rith lodges.
BBW opposed the idea as well
as a merger with BBI, and for a
time considered seceding from
B'nai B'rith altogether.
Before matters could get too far
out of hand, 14 top leaders from
two organizations began a series
of nine intense monthly meetings
from 198546. "We presented our
arguments with fervor and can-
dor," wrote committee chairs
Philip Klutznick and Dorothy
Binstock in their final report.
"A great deal was at stake,"
recalled one of the participants,
BBW president Irma Gertler.
Through long and challenging
negotiations, she indicated, the
new plan was formulated.
An added benefit was that the
participants learned to better
understand one another. "Com-
munication up until then had not
been as constant.. .as now," she
said they were satisfied with the
plan. Besides healing an organiza-
tional rift, the organization
becomes more attractive to young
members, Reich said, allowing
even young couples to join
Reich himself has belonged to a
unit for three years, after being a
lodge member for about 20.
Gertler is a BBW chapter
So, Mr. and Madame President,
what we would you tell a female
unit-member interested in becom-
ing a B'nai B'rith leader, but torn
between BBI and BBW?
Reich said he would advocate
"free choice. It depends on her
own predilections, where she's
Gertler agreed that it's "strictly
personal choice. I would not want
to influence her in any way. It
depends what her interests are.
Needless to say, I think there are
wonderful opportunities in B'nai
B'rith Women, but either choice is

Letters to Editor
No Voice of Outrage Heard
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
The full page of pictures in the
Jan. 9 edition of The Jewish
Floridan about the Alexander S.
Gross Hebrew Academy's 39th
annual scholarship affair brought
me back to a recent, intense and
deeply-felt discussion among a
group of intelligent people about
the removal of the Hebrew
Academy sign from the building
and its replacement with a new
name, Fana Holtz High School.
All of us, in unison, expressed a
sense of outrage and anger
anger not only about the
egonamia (pronounced ego-name-
ia) family, but also anger about
those in toe Hebrew Academy and
The Jewish Floridian who failed to
voice outrage and opposition to
such a sacrilege: the changing of a
Parties Trade
ultra-Orthodox Shas Party and
the more mainstream National
Religious Party traded charges
last Thursday (Jan. 8) over the
handling of converts to Judaism.
Rabbi Yitzhak Peretz, leader of
Shas, who resigned as Interior
Minister last week rather than
comply with a Supreme Court
order to register American im-
migrant Shoahana Miller as a Jew,
because she was converted by a
Reform rabbi, charged that the
NRP, when it held the Interior
Ministry portfolio, "registered
gentiles as Jews."
Peretz was responding to NRP
charges that he had mishandled
the Miller case. Shas has threaten-
ed to quit the unity coalition
government unless the definition
of a Jew in the Law of Return is
amended according to Orthodox
demands. Shas has four seats in
the Knesset, as does the NRP.
If Shas leaves the coalition it
would be difficult for the other Or-
thodox factions to remain, par-
ticularly if a non-Orthodox person
appointed to replace Peretx and
registers Miller as a Jew, as
ordered by the court.
The religious parties planned to
bring the controversial Who is a
Jew amendment to the Knesset

name synonymous with Judaism,
Jewish learning and Jewish roots
and tradition.
The new name should be remov-
ed and the name, Hebrew
Academy School, restored so that
the multitude may still point with
pride as alumni of the Academy.
In expressing these sentiments, I
must, however, point to the
satisfaction I felt that only the
name of the Alexander S. Gross
Hebrew Academy was mentioned
in The Jewish Floridian picture
It is proper and of tremendous
benefit to have a building or wing
of a hospital, school, university, or
any institution of academic intent
named after the generous donor.
But it is an affront and a sacrilege
to uproot for a price an old and
sacred, hallowed name to be
replaced by the name of the
This goes also for imposing for a
price the names of Gil and Adela
Holtz, Abel Holtz's parents, on
Rabbi Abraham Korf s yeshiva.
For that, Rabbi Korf is also to be
blamed, as well as those responsi-
ble at the Hebrew Academy.
It is also embarrassing to the
Jewish community to see the
change of name of an historic
Miami Beach landmark and
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
I read the article regarding
Chanukah Menorahs in public
places, and I was disappointed
that Greater Miami was not men-
tioned as one of the cities in which
the Lubavitcher Chassidim had
erected the giant Chanukah
As a member of the local Jewish
community I can only say that it
did my heart good and gave me a
sense of pride to see those lovely
symbols of our holiday displayed
in prominent places.
I give the Lubavitcher great
credit for their spunk and
perseverance. We need more
Jewish awareness, and they're the
ones who are spreading it.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Reader Alon
refers to the column by Andrew
Muchin in the Jan. 9 edition of
The Jewish Floridian whose in-
tent was not to praise the
Lubavitcher for the program of
placing menorahs in public
places. On the contrary,
Muchin reported Supreme Court eases brought

gram as a violation of the

ingo Park Tennis Court has been
changed to Capital Bank Tennis
Center, Abel Holtz's bank.

Herzog replied, "The dues I

New York Cardinal John 0'Conner meets
with President Chaim Herzog at the Presi-
dent '8 residence last week. The visit was a con-
JTA/WZN News Photo
troversial one due to the Vatican position on
Israel and Jerusalem.
O'Connor Chides Jews
On 'Stereotyping' of Palestinians
John Cardinal O'Connor last
week ended his tour of
Israel by chiding Americans
for stereotyping Arabs. "I
feel we have a stereotype in
the U.S. for the Arab and
Palestinian. If you use
either term, Arab or Palesti-
nian, many people see ter-
rorist," he told reporters at
Ben-Gurion Airport last
Monday evening (Jan. 5),
just before leaving for
"We are talking about an an-
cient, noble people with which we
have much in common," he said.
"There are very many Arab and
Palestinian leaders looking for a
peaceful solution" of the Middle
East conflict, the Roman Catholic
Archbishop of New York
HE ADDED that he "was en-
couraged to find so much talk of
peace in Israel. You don't hear in
the Arab world now things you
heard just a few years ago:
"We're going to push the Israelis
into the sea.' "
O'Connor said he would inform
Pope John Paul II in Rome that "I
think there's good will on all sides,
and that's what you need. I see a
lot of good will here in the Arab
world and in Israel toward the Ho-
ly See."
But O'Connor's visit to Israel
was fraught with controversy and
strains since he crossed the Alien-
by Bridge from Jordan. The
prelate made it clear that he
would have to abide by Vatican
guidelines not to meet with Israeli
leaders in their official capacity at
their offices in Jerusalem because
the Vatican does not recognize
Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
for any offense he might have
given Israelis and their leaders
and faulted himself for not fully
realizing before this trip the con-
straints put upon him by Vatican
policy. Nevertheless the Cardinal
met with President Chaim Herzog
at the Presidential residence in
Jerusalem and breakfasted with
Vice Premier and Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres at the lat-
ter's home.
He described Peres as a
"friend" and said he was
delighted to have been able to
return Peres' visit to his residence
in New York last October. It was
on that occasion that Peres in-
vited the Cardinal to visit Israel.
O'Connor emphasized repeated-
ly in his remarks to reporters that
the visits to Herzog and Peres
were entirely informal and unof-
ficial. On both occasions he wore
plain clerical garb instead of the
crimson robes and decorations of
a Cardinal which he displayed
elsewhere during his stay in
HE SEEMED nonplussed when
reporters reminded him that the
Presidential residence (Beit
Hanassi) also serves as Herzog'I
office. "If it is not the President's
residence, then there has been a
gross mistake, because ... it was
very clear that it would not be ap-
propriate for me within my
guidelines to visit the President
officially in his office in
Jerusalem," O'Connor said.
The problem did not arise at
Peres' home, which is not used as
an office. Peres himself implied
that the nature of the Cardinal's
visit lay in the eyes of the
beholder. "Jerusalem is the
capital of Israel and it makes no
differences if anybody recognizes
that fact or not. And if someone
comes to me and says I am coming
to you as a private individual so
what? Does that make me a
private individual?" Peres asked.
The final event of O'Connor's
tour was a visit to the ad-
ministered Gaza Strip where he
inspected the Shatti refugee camp
housing some 40,000 Palestinians.
Earlier, O'Connor visited the
Western Wall in the Old City of
Jerusalem where he kissed the
stones, and the Yad Vashem
Holocaust Memorial in West
Jerusalem. Near tears, he found it
difficult to express in words the
horror he felt at viewing the
Holocuast exhibits.
Israel, extended to O'Connor by
Peres stemmed in large measure
from concern over the Ar-
chbishop's relationship with the
Jewish State. Peres said he in-
vited the Roman Catholic leader
to learn the Israeli side of the Mid-
dle East conflict.
Last July, during a visit to
Lebanon, O'Connor said the
Vatican would establish
diplomatic relations with Israel
only after three preconditions
were satisfied: Israel should
"assist substantially" in finding
"a Palestinian homeland"; it
should help achieve peace in
Lebanon; and should also aid the
security of some eight million
Christians living in the Arab
On that occasion, the Cardinal
made no mention of Syria the
Shiite and Sunni Moslems, Iran or
Libya, all of which have con-
tributed to the destabilization of
Lebanon and the massacre of
Lebanese Christians.
Before leaving Israel, O'Connor
seemed to indicate that he
thought Vatican-Israel relations
could develop in the future.
HE TOLD reporters, after
meeting with Peres, that "I have
found, contrary to disappointment
I found in New York, I found here
that the Foreign Minister is open
to an extraordinary number of

Jews to Venezuela

them to leave with you."
Polin, president of the Rabbinical
Council, Brener flew to Havana
last Nov. 24, accompanied by
Bishop Alfredo Rodriguez, vice
president of the Committee of
Relations Between Synagogues
and Churches in Venezuela, of
which Brener is president.
After meeting with Castro and
other Cuban officials, and with
Jewish community leaders,
Brener was permitted to take the
five Jews back with him on the
same plane that brought him from
The five were identified as Dr.
Julio Imiak and Dr. Solomon
Mitrani; Imiak's mother; and
Alberto Fernandez Vinas and
Abraham Shujman, all who have
kin in Venezuela. The Cuban
authorities had previously forbid-
den the physicians to leave
because of the local shortage of
medical doctors.
Castro expressed interest in
knowing more about the Jewish
people and that he had explained
to him the history and travails of
the Jews, the Holocaust and the
importance of Israel to them.
Brener said that 12,000 Jews
lived in Cuba prior to the revolu-
tion led by Castro in 1959. Today
only about 1,000 Jews remain in
Havana and 300-400 elsewhere in
Cuba. Brener said he brought with
him prayer books and religious
items for the community.
As a gift for Castro, he brought
a Hebrew Bible printed in Israel
with an inscription on the inside
back cover "Man is the crown of
God's creation. Therefore,
whoever labors on behalf of man
and of human society is acting in
the spirit of these holy
