BEFORE START OF MEETING: Former President Jimmy
Carter (left) meets with Israel's Foreign Minister Shimon Peres
in Jerusalem. The former President was on an unofficial visit to
Israel during which former Prime Minister Menachem Begin, co-
signer with the slain Egyptian President Sadat of the Camp
David Accord, refused to see Carter.
Carter's New Dreams of Glory
Says Assad, Hussein Prepared To Enter Into Peace Talks
Former President Jimmy
Carter arrived in Israel
Thursday (March 26) saying
he was convinced that the
leaders of Syria and Jordan
would join direct peace talks
with Israel held within the
framework of an interna-
tional peace conference.
Meeting with Vice Premier and
Foreign Minister Shimon Peres
shortly after reaching Jerusalem
by the Allenby Bridge from Jor-
dan, Carter said that President
Hafez Assad of Syria understood
that an international conference
was the next stage toward direct
HE SAID that King Hussein of
Jordan wanted to advance the
peace process and held "flexible
views," but was unable to move
forward in the absence of an inter-
national forum. According to
Carter, Assad regards Jordan as
"a leading force in the peace pro-
cess." Carter said that in his own
view, Syria, too, has an important
role in the process.
Carter's visit to Israel, his first
since 1983, is the final leg of a tour
that took him to Algeria, Egypt,
Syria and Jordan. The former
President stressed repeatedly
here and in the Arab capitals that
his visit was private and the views
he expressed were his own. He
made clear he is not representing
the U.S.
He made several statements in
the course of his journey on the
need to include the Palestine
Liberation Organization in an in-
ternational conference.
Israel coincided with the eighth
anniversary of the signing of the
Israel-Egyptian peace treaty on
March 26, 1979 at a White House
ceremony. The signatories were
then Israeli Premier Menachem
Begin and the late President An-
war Sadat of Egypt. Carter
engineered the treaty.
Carter asked for a meeting with
Begin, who has been living in
seclusion at his suburban
Jerusalem home since he resigned
from office in August 1983. Ac-
cording to Begin's spokesman.
Yechiel Kadi&hai, the 73-year-old
former Premier said "that he
can't see him, that's all. He didn't
give any reason." Begin and
Carter last met during Carter's
1983 visit.
Carter told reporters Thursday
that one of the lessons of Camp
David, at which Egypt, Israel and
the U.S. talked was that one
should not stick to any single
specific formula in pursuing peace
and that it is time to advance to a
stage. He said that would
an international
seem to be
HE SAID his visit to Israel was
to raise questions and float ideas
for Israeli leaders, as a private
citizen. He added that he had
never succeeded in convincing
Israelis "or anyone else" to do
what they did not want to do.
Asked why the peace process
had not advanced after ip
David, Carter said "Perhaps u.ere
is more I could have done, but I
don't think that in the last six
years (the tenure of the Reagan
Administration) it has been as
high a priority as it has been with
me, when it was almost an
Carter expressed hope never-
theless that the last two years of
the Reagan Administration would
see the Middle East peace process
become a greater priority.
The Reagan Administration
sharply criticized Carter for a
remark before the American
Chamber of Commerce in Cairo
last week that the/e was "missing
leadership" in Washington.
"President Reagan has not been
inclined to use negotiation and
diplomacy as a means to achieve
our nation's goals as have his
Democratic and 'Republican
predecessors. He's more inclined
to exert America's military
strength, either the actual use of
it or the threat of it," Carter said.
an angry response from White
House spokesman Martin Fitz-
water last Friday. He said the Ad-
ministration was "deeply disap-
pointed" that Carter would make
such a statement on the "very
delicate" Mideast peace process
while in a foreign country. "It is
not right to say we have not been
pursuing the peace process in the
Middle East," Fitzwater said.
State Department spokesman
Charles Redman declared that
"This Administration has remain-
ed actively involved in the peace
process and is deeply committed
to it"
Carter met with Assad in
Damascus for three-and-a-half
hours Sunday, according to
Syria's official news agency,
Sana, discussing "issues relating
to the international situation, the
Middle East and Lebanon."
earlier Tuesday (March 24) asser-
ting that" As long as the parties
stay flexible and listen to contrary
views, the hope for a (interna-
tional) conference is kept alive."
He met with King Hussein and
Crown Prince Hassan.
In Jerusalem Thursday, Carter
said he had no word on any possi-
ble progress on the hostage issue
in Lebanon.

Deeper Understanding
Leaders Have Heard Israel's Motives in Spy Case
American Jewish leaders
who came here two weeks
ago to warn the leaders of
Israel that their handling of
the Jonathan Pollard spy
case was not being well
received in the U.S., have
left for home saying they
had gained a deeper
understanding of Israel's ac-
tions and motives.
The 40-member delegation of
the Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Organiza-
tions also gained insight into
Israel's relationship with South
Africa and its efforts to have the
U.S. government abolish refugee
status for Jews leaving the Soviet
Union, according to Conference
chairman Morris Abram.
"I think Americans will never
be able to fully understand Israeli
actions when they (Israelis)
perceive their security interests
are at stake," Abram told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
HE REFERRED specifically to
a matter which soured U.S. at-
titudes toward Israel and aroused
serious concern among American
Jews the advancement of the
careers of Air Force Col. Aviem

ticipate in the 19th International
Student Sport Games, April

This marks the first appearance
of a Polish team in the tourna-
ment which will include approx-
imately 1,000 athletes from
Brazil, Switzerland, Germany,
England and Israel.
Sella and former Mossad
operative Rafael Eitan, the Israeli
officials who, according to
Pollard's trial testimony,
recruited him and ran his spy
operation in the U.S.
"People who live in constant
fear of utter destruction and
death look on a Col. Sella as a na-
tional asset and a hero of which
there are not enough in a
dangerous world, so there is sym-
pathy for Sella and I have that
sympathy too. I know what Sella
is and what he represents,"
Abram said.
He maintained that Sella was in
fact "punished" by not being pro-
moted to the rank of Brig. Gen.,
even though he was given com-
mand of Israel's second largest air
leaders had long, frank discus-
sions with Premier Yitzhak
Shamir, Vice Premier and
Foreign Minister Shimon Peres,
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin
and other top political and
military figures.
They were told repeatedly that
the Pollard spy case was a "rogue
operation" conducted without the
knowledge or authorization of the
highest levels of government.
Abram said he believed this and
was confident the other members
of the delegation left Israel also
believing it.
But at least one member still
has doubts. Barrett Zumhoff,
president of the Workmen's Cir-
cle, said "Shamir, Peres, Rabin
and all said it was a rogue opera-
tion. It sounded convincing but I
don't believe it."
"Part of espionage is that the
head of state has to have deniabili-
ty," Zumhoff observed.
"Regardless of this, the Pollard
affair was only compounded by a
number of errors made by the
Israeli government in the wake of
the crisis, the worst of which were
the promotions of Sella and
Eitan." Those actions were "ex-
ceptionally stupid," he added.

ZUMHOFF WAS also critical
of the public stand taken by the
Presidents Conference delega-
tion. "I didn't agree that we
should have made so much noise
about it. I felt we had overdone
it," he said. "Criticism of the
Israel government would have
been more beneficial if conveyed
privately, not in the media."
Israel Friedman, executive vice
president of the Religious Zionists
of America/Hapoel Hamizrachi,
echoed those sentiments. "The
whole thing was blown out of pro-
portion," he said.
But Abram called the meeting
of Jewish leaders with Israel's top
leadership last week a
"This has been a historic
meeting because I have never in
my life seen in such stark forms,
issues boil to the surface not
just abstract issues like 'Who is a
Jew?', but in terms of how the
relationship of Jews in the
diaspora to Israel affects the
State of Israel," Abram said.
SPEAKING OF the Pollard af-
fair in general, Abram said the
Presidents Conference never in-
tended to dictate to the Israeli
government how to conduct its in-
ternal affairs. But, Abram said,
"We had every responsibility, and
discharged it, to tell the State
leaders of Israel how their actions
were being perceived in the U.S."
The deeper understanding of
Israeli positions also extended to
the controversy over Israel's
military ties with South Africa,
according to Abram. "We
understood some who said Israel
had to very cautious about the use
of the boycott ... the word em-
bargo doesn't strike responsive
chords in a country which is
almost embargoed out of the
United Nations," Abram said.
Days after the Presidents Con-
ference delegation arrived, the
Israeli government decided to im-
pose limited sanctions on South
Africa. Abram explained that
Israel has done more to hurt itself
in this action than any other state.
"Israel needs an arms industry
because it has so few arms sup-
pliers and an arms industry needs
exports. No state similarly beset
and beleaguered, so insecure, at
war with all its neighbors has
taken an action so contrary to its
military interesrt on behalf of its
moral principles," Abram said.

Nearly 2,000 pro-Israel ac-
tivists, members of Congress

Friday, April 1Q, 1987/The Jewish Floridiap of South Broward-Hollywood Page 3
There might never have been an Emancipation Proclamation
without a Passover.
On the night of 15 Nisan.approxi-
mately 3200 years ago.a new era in
human history was begun.
On that date.the right and
supremacy of human freedom was
reaffirmed to the peoples of the world.
The Jews.under the leadership of
Moses.put an end to 400 years of slav-
ery imposed upon them by the ancient
Passover is the Festival that com-
memorates that remarkable
marks the birth of the Jews as a free is the reassertion of Jewish
elief that freedom and dignity are
inalienable human rights/That no one,
be he king.dictator or private citizen
has a mandate to oppress or enslave an-
other human being.This commitment
to freedom as expressed by the Passover
is central to the thoughts and ideals
which have become the foundation of
western civilization.
It is the Ethic upon which Abra-
ham Lincoln based the Emancipation
Proclamation issued more than 30
centuries after the Exodus from Egypt.
For Jews,Passover is a time to
reaffirm the faith and morality forged
from the experience of Egyptian
enslavement and redemption.
But the story told in the Hagad-
dah speaks not just to Jews.but to all
people who love freedom and who are
willing to make sacrifices to keep it.
It is a story that strengthens our
resolve as free citizens of a great nation
to stand together and help others who
are less fortunate throughout the world
to reassert their destiny to be free.
Passover is the Festival of Free-
dom.It is celebrated during the awak-
ening of spring.the rekindling of life.
It renews our faith that someday
there will be liberty for gives us
hope that some day all may live in peace
and dignity.
It s what makes us Jews.

Preparing Kitchen
For Passover
Issued by the Law Committee,
Rabbinical Assembly of America
Passover, Festival of Freedom, has a unique
place in the Jewish home because of the seder and
because of the changed atmosphere in the home
during the Passover week.
This Passover home atmosphere is created each
year by the traditional practice of thoroughly
cleansing the home in all its parts and by the
removal of all chometz or leaven, in preparation for
the welcome of Pesach. Also through the
meticulous avoidance of the use of chometz or
leaven throughout the Passover days, both at home
and when away.
The term chometz or leaven is applied not only to
foods, the use of which is to be avoided during
Pesach, but also to the dishes and utensils in which
foods are prepared or served during the year, and
which dishes or utensils may not be used during
Pesach except as herein indicated.
Foods During Passover
FORBIDDEN FOR USE: The following foods are
forbidden for use during Passover Leavened
breads, cakes, biscuits and crackers, cereals, coffee
substances derived from cereals, wheat, barley,
oats, rice, dry peas and dry beans, and all liquids
which contain ingredients or flavors made from
grain alcohol.
PERMITTED FOODS: Requiring no Kosher
L'Pe8ach label. The following foods are permitted
in unopened packages or containers. They require
no Kosher L'Pesach label. Natural coffee, sugar,
tea, salt, pepper, vegetables (except peas and dry
beans) and fruits. Permitted vegetables can be
fresh or frozen.
If Certified for Passover use by rabbinical
authority: matzos, matzo flour. Passover noodles,
candies, cakes, beverages, canned and processed
foods, milk, butter, jams, cheese, jellies, relishes,
dried fruits, salad oils, vegetables, gelatin, shorten-
ings, vinegar, wines and liquors are permitted if
they are certified by competent rabbinical authori-
ty as fit for Passover use. Labels and tags marked
Kosher L' Pesach are of no value unless they bear
rabbinical signature.
Dishes and Utensils
Only dishes and utensils specially reserved for
Passover should be used with the following excep-
tions: (A) The silverware, knives, forks and spoons
made wholly of metal, if used during the year, may
be used on Passover if thoroughly scoured and im-
mersed in boiling water. All table glassware is per-
mitted after thorough scouring. Fine translucent
china ware, if not used for a year, is permitted.
(B) Metal pots and pans used for cooking purposes
only (but not for baking), if made wholly of metal,
though used during the year, may be used on
Passover if first thoroughly scoured and immersed
in boiling water. (C) Utensils used for baking dur-
ing the year cannot be used during Passover.
Earthenware, enamelware and porcelain unten-
sils used during the year may not be used on
The stove is prepared for Passover by thorough
scrubbing and cleansing of all parts and turning on
full flame in the bake oven and all the grates.
A dishwashing machine may be used for
Passover after thorough scouring with boiling
water and the use of a new tray.
Editor'a Note: According to Orthodox Pro-
cedure, the following preparation should be added:
All pots, pans and utensils being kashered
should not be used for a 24-hour waiting period
before being immersed in boiling water.
Table glasswear may be used after it has been
soaked in water for three days. The water should
be changed every 24 hours.
Non-Passover china may be used only "in cases
of dire emergency." But first, a competent rab-
binical authority should be contacted.
According to some authorities, an oven can be
used after it is thoroughly cleansed, undergoes a
24-hour period of waiting, and is then turned on to
its highest heat for one hour.
According to some authorities, a dishwasher
may be used for Passover. After undergoing a
24-hour waiting period, the machine should run
through three cycles on the highest heat.
StriflJf^MOtt'-as well as'dried beans should not
be consumed on Passover.
End Of The Seder
It's Like A Surprise Symphony
. i$i-
The end of the Seder is
rather like the Surprise Sym-
phony. Following the sump-
tuous meal, many (especially
the children) drowse through
the second part of the Seder
when all are suddenly wakened
by the rousing, almost roister-
ing, songs which finish off the
evening with great eclat.
These songs were apparent-
ly introduced for this very pur-
pose, or perhaps to add an in-
formal element to this careful-
ly arranged and impressive
family ceremony. Some of
them were originally sung only
in the Ashkenazic rite, but of
late they have been adopted by
many Sephardic Jews as well.
They are deservedly among
the most widely known and
beloved of the entire Jewish
festival repertoire.
The first two songs are long
acrostic poems from the 7th
Century: lines begin with suc-
cessive letters of the Hebrew
alphabet. The first night's
song recounts a series of
miracles said to have occurred,
like Passover, at the dead of
night. The second night's
acrostic enumerates events
said to have occurred on
Passover and has the refrain
"This was the Paschal
sacrifice." They were written
respectively by Yannai and
Eleazar Kalir, both 7th Cen-
tury Hebrew liturgists.
The third poem, Ki Lo Naeli
- "For It Befits Him" is of
quite a different ilk. Also an
acrostic, it reviews the various
attributes of God and has a
quaint refrain, "Thine Also
Thine," taken from different
verses in the Book of Psalms.
The theme of this song, as of
the entire Haggadah, is God's
greatness, mercy and his love
for the Jewish people shown in
His leading them out of Egypt.
Though Moses is a central
figure in the Biblical account
of Passover and the Exodus,
he is completely absent from
the main body of the Hag-
gadah and from these con-
cluding songs.
The most rousing of all the
songs is Adir Hu "Mighty is
He, which is sung to a
rollicking tune. This 15th Cen-
tury acrostic implores God to
rebuild His temple speedily. It
has a paraphrase in Old Yid-
dish which used to be sung un-
til quite recently after the
Hebrew song. I have seen it
printed in American Haggadot
from the 1930's. This Old Yid-
dish Adir Hu appeared in the
first printed illustrated Hag-
gadah of Gershon Cohen of
Prague of 1526, and it is thus
the earliest printed song
known in Old Yiddish.
"Who Knows One?" is a folk
song in the form of questions
and answers on numbers one
to 13. It seems to be the closest
thing to a catechism in
Judaism. However, it is not
doctrinal but relates to objects
and matters significant in
Jewish life. The form is very
popular the world over. The
English folksong, "Green
Grow the Rushes 0," is the
most familiar. It begins with
"Who'll tell me one 0?
Green Grow the rushes 0.
I'll tell you one 0
One is God and all alone and
evermore shall be it so."
The lsraej .Labor movement?
has also generated a version of
this in which the response to
the first question is: "One is
workers' unity and evermore
shall be so," which is op-
timistic to say the least.
Paraphrases of Ehad Mi
Yodea "Who Knows One?"
in Ladino and in Yiddish are
also sung at the Seder.
The last song in the Hag-
gadah Had Gadya, written
in imitation Aramaic from the
15th Century, is the most
lovable. In a breathless climax
to the Haggadah, it relates the
events following the purchase
of a kid "bought by my father
for two coins," and ends with
the Lord showing that he over-
comes the Angel of Death.
An unorthodox Hebrew ver-
sion of this ends with the pro-
mise that these events will be
For Children of The Holocaust
The Fifth Child
terminated with the abolition
of evil as a prelude to universal
peace. I remember singing a
song in Yiddish in a similar
vein with my father, a song in
which the Lord sends a pea-
sant to pick apples in a forest,
but the peasant refuses to per-
form this chore, and the subse-
quent messengers, identical
with the actors in the Had
Gadya, also refuse to do their
duty, until the Lord himself
goes to the forest. Then all ac-
quire a fear of the Lord, do
their own jobs, and even the
apples begin to drop of their
own volition.
It is also a celebration of love
interpreted allegorically as the
love of God for the People of
Israel, which is the central
theme of the Haggadah.
(This prayer is to be in-
serted in the Passover seder
before opening the door for
On this night, we remember a
fifth child.
This is a child of the Shoah

vive to ask.
Therefore, we ask for that

We are like the simple child.
We have no answer.

footsteps of Rabbi Elazar ben

tion with silence.

In silence, let us pass the cup
of Elijah, the cup of the final
redemption yet-to-be. We
remember our people's

the beginning of that
redemption. Let us each fill
Elijah's cup with some
of our wine, expressing the
hope that through our
efforts, we will help bring
closer that redemption.

to invite Elijah, the
forerunner of the future
which will bring an end to
the nights of our people.

With regard to the letter by Ar-
thur Greenfield, I would like to
say that I was shocked.
Being Chassidic Jews, we have
an age-old traditional "dress
code" for the Sabbath and even
though we are accused of being
set in our ways, any Jew, no mat-
ter what he wears, as long as he is
"decent," is welcomed in our
I will never forget Dr. Velvel
Green, noted NASA scientist,
who told us that although he drove
up to a Chassidic synagogue Fri-
day night and came in carrying
suitcases, no one ridiculed him or
threw him out. Rather they took
him in and taught him better.
Green went on to become a Baal
Teshuva and a source of great
pride to the Jewish people.
Prayer is a service of the heart
and is not expressed through
one's external appearance as we
learn from the encounter of the
prophetess Channah and the High
Priest Eli.
I find it strange that the Conser-
vative and Reform can be so rigid
when it comes to manmade rules
and yet so permissive with
regards to Torah laws.
We need each and every Jew,
and it is only through ahavas
Yisroel that we can bring them
back to Judaism.

Scholar Raps
South Africa
leading Israeli scholar and former
diplomat delivered an un-
precedented blast at South
African Jewry here Tuesday.
"They are part of the white power
structure and benefit from it.
There's nothing Israel owes peo-
ple who are part of a racist
regime," Prof. Shlomo Avineri
declared at a Hebrew University
symposium on South Africa.
Apparently referring to Israel's
reluctance to follow the West in
applying sanctions against the
Pretoria regime because of possi-
ble repercussions for South
African Jews, Avineri asserted
that "South African Jews can
take care of themselves very well
and don't need Israel's support."
Israel announced last week that it
would phase out its military and
other relationships with South
Avineri, who was director
general of the Israel Foreign
Ministry in 1976-77 and is a world
renowned authority on Marx and

month when he accused American
Jewish leaders of demonstrating a
"galut" mentality in their
response to the Jonathan Pollard
spy case, "cringing" for fear of
charges of dual loyalty.

Passover Around The JDC World
In Romania, 5,000 Jews,
many of them aged and infirm
survivors of the Holocaust,
will attend community
Sedorim funded with the help
of the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC).
Other members of the com-
munity will receive special
Passover parcels of kosher
food and wine.
In Tunisia, some 350 people
in six communities will receive
special assistance to buy mat-
zah, matzah meal, wine, meat,
and oil for the holiday, thanks
to JDC.
These are two ways in which
JDC helps bring Passover into
Jewish homes, no matter how
isolated or poor, around the
"May all who are hungry
come and eat," reads the Hag-
gadah. JDC, acting on behalf
of the American Jewish com-
munity, takes this injunction
very seriously.
"Wherever there are Jews in
need, JDC is at work," say
JDC President Heinz Eppler
and Executive Vice President
Ralph I. Goldman in their
Passover message. "As we
celebrate this joyous festival,
we join in sending greetings to
our fellows Jews around the
world those overseas, whom
we help observe the holiday, as
well as those at home, who
make this help possible with
their continued support of the
United Jewish Appeal."
In many of the 34 countries
in which it operates, JDC helps
provide Passover assistance.
The Jewish communities of
Morocco and Poland receive
shipments of matzah, matzah
flour, and wine for the holiday.
Elsewhere in Eastern
Europe, JDC helps distribute
matzah to clients of the Jewish
community's social assistance
agency in Hungary. In
Czechoslovakia, where kosher
food and Passover wine are
not available, JDC helps pur-
chase the supplies elsewhere
and imports them into the
country for distribution.
The 180 Jews of Egypt
receive supplies of kosher
meat and wine, matza, and
matzah meal with help of JDC.
Passover supplies and food
baskets are provided for needy
Jews in Algeria as well.
In Israel, JDC is faithful to
its tradition of helping those
on the fringes of society and
gives aid to the physically and
socially handicapped, the aged,
and the very young. In old-age
homes, community centers,
and other institutions where
JDC plays a major role in
maintaining a high standard of
service, its presence is quietly
felt at the Seder table.
This mitzvah is made possi-
ble by the American Jewish
community's generous support
of the United Jewish Appeal,
which provides the bulk of the
JDC 1987 budget of $57

'Deeply Distressed'
Friday, April 10, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 7
'60 Minutes' Failed To Tell Story
American Jewish Congress
says it is "deeply distress-
ed" by a CBS "60 Minutes'*
segment on March 22
because it claims the pro-
gram suggested that only a
relatively small number of
Soviet Jews are unhappy
with life in the Soviet
A statement by Theodore R.
Mann, president of AJCongress,
said the segment, featuring Mike
Wallace, presented a "simplistic
and inaccurate picture" of Soviet
Jewish reality and was dedicated
"to sweeping aside painful
evidence of decades of anti-Jewish
discrimination and oppression."
THE STATEMENT asserted it
has never been denied by
American Jewish organizations
that some Jews are satisfied with
Soviet life and do not wish to
leave. But it noted that the "key
concern" is with the "400,000
Jews who have requested and
received invitations from Israel"
and with additional hundreds of
thousands "who may wish to leave
but are fearful of even expressing
such a desire."
Mann's statement also question-
ed the candor of "satisfied" Jews
interviewed by Mr. Wallace, con-
tending they were fully aware
that their comments "would even-
tually be seen and heard by the
Soviet government."
The text of Mann's statement
"WE ARE deeply distressed by
a March 22 segment on CBS's
'Sixty Minutes' suggesting that
only a small group of hard-core
Soviet Jewish dissidents are
dissatisfied with life in the Soviet
"We have never denied that
there are some Jews who are
satisfied with Soviet life and do
not wish to leave. Others, referred
to in the TV segment by a Soviet
Jewish refusenik as 'trained
Jews,' have been willing to trade
their Jewish identity for material
rewards within the Soviet system.
"Our key concern, rather, is
with the 400,000 Soviet Jews who
have requested and received in-
vitations from Israel. These do not
even include the additional hun-
dreds of thousands of Jews who
may wish to leave but are fearful
of even expressing such a desire.
"The Sixty Minutes segment ig-
nores this truth about the Soviet
Jewish condition and dedicates
itself to sweeping aside painful
evidence of decades of anti-Jewish
discrimination and oppression.
"ONE CANNOT help wonder
about the candor of some of those
"satisfied" Jews interviewed on
camera who knew full well that
their comments would eventually
be seen and heard by the Soviet
"It is strange that 'Sixty
Minutes' did not make a single
reference to the U.S. State
Department's recently-issued
'Country Reports on Human
Rights Practices for 1986' which
notes that Jews in the Soviet
Union are subjected to
'systematic persecution based on
ancestry.' This report also
declares that Jews are denied ac-
cess to the better schools and
universities, are virtually banned
from political careers in the Com-
munist Party and upper echelons
of state government and from
other crucial areas of public life,
and have been subjected to vicious
anti-Semitic Vilification in official
Soviet propaganda, including
books, broadcasts and newspaper
articles. Moreover, Soviet Jews
study or teach Hebrew or Jewish
history only at the risk of
"Even those assimilated Jews
who have sought accommodation
with the Soviet system cannot en-
tirely escape the burden of their
official designation as Jews. And
for those who choose to live as
Jews, worship as Jews or main-
tain Jewish cultural traditions, the
price is infinitely greater. In
Soviet terms, one cannot be a full-
fledged citizen and also be a Jew.
"It is regrettable that 'Sixty
Minutes,' in its eagerness to scoop
its competitors in the media, has
presented a simplistic and inac-
curate picture of a complex and
troubling problem that will surely
be recorded by Soviet public rela-
tions specialists as a major
Ties Improve
tions between Poland and Israel
are improving in all areas, accor-
ding to Kalman Sultanik who was
reelected president of the
American Federation of Polish
Jews last week.
Addressing the Federation's an-
nual conference here Sunday,
marking 1,000 years of Jewish life
in Poland, Sultanik spoke of en-
couraging signs that Israel and
Poland are drawing closer after
20 years without diplomatic ties.
He stressed that the content of
their relations, for example,
cultural exchanges, are more im-
portant than their formality.
Nevertheless, reporting in his
recent meeting with Joseph
Cyrek, chairman of the Polish
Parliamentary Commission on
Foreign Affairs, Sultanik said
steps are being taken to restore
diplomatic relations between the
two countries.

Peres Answers Arabs' Queries.
On Wireless Telephone Hook-Up
Utilizing an international
wireless telephone hook-up
via West Germany, Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres
answered questions from
callers in the Arab world for
a half-hour Thursday (Mar.
26). Most of the questions
related to Middle East
The telephone exchange was ar-
ranged by the Arabic service of
the state-owned Israel Radio in
cooperation with a radio station in
Bonn. Except for callers from
Egypt, who used the newly install-
ed direct-dialing, questions and
answers were relayed through
Bonn. Peres heard simultaneous
translations and replied in
English, which was translated in-
to Arabic.
CALLS FROM Syria, during a
practice run Wednesday, were cut
off abruptly, and there were no
Syrian calls Thursday. But there
were calls from Lebanon, Jordan,
Egypt and the West Bank. Peres
was asked about an international
conference for Middle East peace,
the peace process with Egypt and
the situation between Israel and
Syria since Syrian armed forces
occupied West Beirut earlier this
The Foreign Minister stressed
that Israel wants peace, but apart
from Egypt has found no Arab
He said Israel was ready to par-
ticipate in preparations for an in-
ternational conference or in talks
with a joir.t Jordanian-Palestinian
delegation, but not with the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion, which he said "preferred
shooting to talking."
EARLIER, Peres met with
three Palestinian leaders, Hanna
Seniora, editor of the East
Jerusalem Arabic daily Al Fajr;
Fayez Abu Rahman, a West Bank
attorney; and Dr. Saeri
He said his purpose was to hear
their opinions on Israel-
Palestinian relations and acquaint
them with Israel's policies.

Do We Need An Official 'English Only' Movement?
needs of language minorities does
not pose a threat to America's
true common heritage and com-
mon bond the quest for freedom
and opportunity."
Is there a need for Federal
or state laws making
English the "official
language" of the United
States? How do the
"English-only" movements
relate to America's tradi-
tion of cultural pluralism? Is
bilingual education effec-
tive? Should all Americans
be multilingual?
And how can we defuse the
often heated tensions surrounding
these issues and replace rancor
with reasonable, workable
These and related questions
were discussed at what is believed
to be the first major Conference
on Language Policy in the United
States, a forum on "English: The
Only Language? Whose Deci-
sion?" last week at the Tamiami
Campus of Florida International
University in Miami.
SPEAKERS included experts
in bilingual education, leaders of
minority communities, and
intergroup-relations specialists.
Conference sponsors were the
American Jewish Committee, the
Center for Educational Develop-
ment, Center for Multilingual and
Multicultural Studies of Florida
International University, Cuban
National Planning Council, Dade
County Community Relations
Board, Florida International
University, Greater Miami
United, and the Mitchell Wolfson
New World Center Campus of
Miami-Dade Community College.
Keynote speaker was Dr. Sarah
E. Melendez, associate director of
the American Council on Educa-
tion's Office of Minority Con-
cerns, who said in an inteview:
"We don't need laws to make
English the official language, as it
already is, by tradition and
custom. Furthermore, Hispanics
and other language minority
groups don't need laws to force
them to learn English; rather,
they need opportunities they
need classes, teachers, and
materials. Every ESL class has a
waiting list, which proves we
don't need to be coerced to learn
Dr. Melendez also disputed "the
prevalent notion that large
numbers of Hispanics never learn
English," pointing to Census
Bureau findings than 94 percent
of Hispanics in the United States
speak English to some extent.
AS FOR the youngsters of
Hispanic origin, Dr. Melendez said
that "there is no danger that
children going to our school
systems will not learn English,"
adding: "The reality is that
without some special efforts they
will soon forget their parents'
language, which is too bad
because the United States needs
many people with multiple
language capabilities."
Irving M. Levine, director of
AJC's National Affairs Depart-
ment and of its Institute for
American Pluralism, discussing
the issues covered by the con-
ference, censured those who
"become emotionally over-
wrought about linguistic diversi-
ty, demand 'English-only,' and
refuse to see the value in people's
maintaining their ethnic linguistic
and cultural interests."
Agreeing that "becoming com-
petent in English is more of a
necessity than ever for new im-
migrants," Levine held that,
nevertheless, "mastering the new
language while also preserving
the old is what the equation should
be for new ethnic Americans."
AS FOR Americans whose
forebears came here a generation
or mroe ago, Levine suggested
that "it might not be a bad idea
for them to learn the language of
their heritage," adding: "But if
they do not care to do that, let
them at least be more tolerant of
those who do not wish to discard
the treasures the spoken and
written words of cultures that
have enriched our own."
Also slated in a major address at
the conference is Dr. Rodolfo J.
Cortina, director of the Center for
Multilingual and Multicultural
Studies at Florida International
University. Indicating a centra!
issue examined in his address, Dr.
Cortina said that the United
States Constitution, "like the na-
tion, did not confirm any single
ethnic reality but was, rather, in-
vented by multiple ethnic
Moreover, he said, the Constitu-
tion "was meant to be a map of
the future rather than a confirma-
tion of the past" and, he stressed,
"the Constitution contains not
one statement on language policy,
thus demanding that we invent a
language policy for our own
FRAME RS OF the Constitu-
tion, continued Dr. Cortina,
"were not unaware of the strong
feelings provoked by language
and ethnicity, but their Constitu-
tional silence on this issue stems
from the common-law tradition of
not restricting future generations
through needlessly detailed laws
... And I believe that a language
policy in the United States has to
be made by the people, and not by
unnecessary laws."

the debate, Marilyn Braveman,

of the organizers of the con-

A Jewish Community Thrives In Tokyo
It could be a synagogue in
Anytown, U.S.A. The building is
starkly modern, brick, three
stories high. The facade's only
decor are the traditional six-
pointed Star of David and a
Inside, the sanctuary is also
"American Familiar." The pews
are of highly polished blond wood
with hinged reading desks to hold
prayer books. The ark curtains
are of gold-fringed blue velvet,
embellished with menorahs and
other symbols.
Yet, this synagogue is 10,000
miles from New York, in the
center of Tokyo, Japan. Called the
Jewish Community of Japan
(JCJ), it lies in the fashionable
Hiroo district and serves as the
heart and home of Jewish
religious and cultural activities for
the vast Tokyo metropolitan area.
Jews of many nationalities and
denominational preference (Or-

thodox, Conservative and
Reform) reside in the environs of
Japan's capital city and form the
JCJ's widely diverse congrega-
tion. At a recent Friday evening
Sabbath service, I saw a group of
Israeli men seated together,
several American families, a few
women whose husbands are in the
U.S. military, a student who came
from Staten Island, NY, and a
young man from Strasbourg,
France. One couple, who were ob-
viously American tourists, had
come to say Kaddish.
The synagogue may look like
one in America but its procedures
are different. A chart outside the
sanctuary plainly spells out that
pew sections are divided. Some
are for men only, some for women
and there are others where men
and women may sit together.
Sella Quits Valued Post
To Help Ease His Country
Aviem Sella, the Israeli Air
Force officer promoted to
the post of commander of
the Tel Nof Air Base after
his alleged role in serving as
"handler" of convicted U.S.
spy Jonathan Pollard, has
resigned his post.
Sella was earlier indicted by the
United States on charges that he
recruited Pollard, but Israel has
no intention of forcing him to go
the U.S. to stand trial.
In a letter of resignation Sun-
day, Sella said that 'The
deterioration in Israel-U.S. rela-
tions and my concern for the
future (if ties between the two na-
tions and for relations with
American Jewry have induced me
to ask you to release me from my
duties as commander of the Tel
Nof Base."
IN HIS 28-line letter, Sella
hinted that he played only a
"minor role" in the Pollard case.
He ended by noting that "Had
facts been the only consideration,
I would not have resigned."
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, in an Israel Defense Forces
statement, declared that Sella's
decision had been .iccepted by
Chief of Staff Gen. Moshe Levy.
It appears here that Sella's
resignation was spurred by a
report in the London Sunday-
Times that Israel had passed on
Pollard's espionage secrets to
South Africa, which in turn used
them to track down at least one
and perhaps several American
spies in Pretoria.
THE ORIGINAL allegation
was a part of U.S. Secretary of
Defense Caspar Weinberger's
secret affidavit to a Washington
court that tried both Pollard and
his wife, Anne Henderson Pollard.
The Times of London report
speculates that this passing on of
the information may explain the
life sentence to Pollard, a former
Navy intelligence analyst, and
five-year sentence to his wife.
It was the American reaction of
anger to the appointment of Sella
as commander of Tel Nof last Feb.
27, which the Reagan Administra-
tion in fact saw as a promotion,
that led to a storm of criticism
aimed at Israel's role in the
Pollard case.
According to the Administra-
tion, Israeli officials insisted

The service itself reflects this
blend. The rabbi faces away from
the congregation, in the Orthodox
manner. The ritual includes facets
from each of the main branches of
Judaism. Most prayers are in
Hebrew although some are said in
As the congregation's spiritual
leader, Rabbi Michael Schudrich
explains, "We are a traditional
synagogue but unaffiliated with
any of the major arms of Judaism.
We try to make our members com-
fortable sometimes we don't
The congregation, which
numbers about 170 families living
in Japan, is about 50 percent
American, 25 percent Israeli and
the remainder from various other
parts of the world. There are eight
to ten Japanese converts among
the current membership.
The synagogue dates back about
40 years to the immediate post-
World War II era. The founders
were primarily Russian Jews who
had fled their homeland after the
1917 revolution and made their
way to China. Following the
Chinese Communist takeover in
1947, they settled in Japan and
formed the nucleus for a
synagogue, along with personnel
from the American occupation
The present building, which was
erected in 1980, serves as the
focal point for every stage of
Jewish life cycle events. From
birth to death, observant Jews
turn to the JCJ for service and
assistance. Babies are welcomed
into the faith. There is a mikveh
on the premises. Weddings are
held and celebrated a recent
one united a vacationing Israeli
couple, who decided not to wait to
return home before tying the
The JCJ religious school is at-
tended by some 65 children, pro-
viding education through Bar and
Bat Mitzvah. The rabbi, who came
to the Tokyo pulpit from New
York several years ago with his
wife, told me he has hopes of for-
ming a Hebrew high school as his
students mature.
The rabbi fills a variety of
capacities as well as spiritual
leader. He is principal of the
religious school, directs a youth
group and teaches adult education
He also supervises conversions
to Judaism, which occur with sur-
prising frequency, considering the
location. While we talked, his
telephone rang and a Japanese
woman inquired about the conver-
sion procedure. When questioned
about her interest ("I expected to
hear that she planned to marry a
Jew," Rabbi Schudrich said later),
she told him she had visited Israel
and was studying Hebrew.
As I toured the three floors of
the immaculate building, where
hallway conversations in Hebrew
are not uncommon, I realized that
this is the center for Tokyo's
Jewish social life as well as
religious activity. On the second
floor, an outdoor swimming pool
is surrounded by circular tables
topped with colorful umbrellas,
where members, family and
friends can enjoy a respite from
Tokyo's oppressive summer heat
and humidity.
I ndoors on the same floor there
is a 1,000-volume library offering
a wide variety of reading
materials, ranging from the latest
on the New York Times Best
Seller List to classics in fiction
and non-fiction. The library is pro-
bably one of the few places in the
Tokyo area where popular
English-language reading is
The walls of the library are lined
with photographs of past
presidents ofthe congregation,
again a similarity to American
temple life.
Another unique aspect of the
JCJ is that members go there to
buy imported kosher meat and
other foods including Passover
goods. Tokyo offers few if any
other resources for such
necessities. These foods also ap-
pear on the menus at the monthly
community dinners and the Oneg
Shabbot meals which follow some
of the Friday evening services.
What about anti-Semitism in
Japan, I asked Rabbi Schudrich.
Actually, he said, most Japanese
don't know much about Jews or
Judaism they think it's
another part of Christianity.
"If pressed to name people they
know as Jewish," he said, "the
answers would likely be Einstein,
Freud and Barbra Streisand."
Some Japanese, he added, do
think of Jews as prominent in the
medical profession and the media,
which they consider to be positive
He told of problems in the
Japanese educational system with
respect to Jews, however. The on-
ly Shakespearean play most
Japanese students are likely to
read is "The Merchant of
Venice," leaving youngsters with
the stereotyped view of Shylock
the Jew. In addition, he said such
notorious works as the "Protocols
of the Elders of Zion," and other
anti-Semitic literature are
published in Japan.
Rabbi Schudrich, who is study-
ing the Japanese language several
times a week, takes such problems
to the Anti-Defamation League
Committee of the Tokyo B'nai
B'rith Lodge, which interacts
with Japanese government of-
ficials and educators.
After talking with Rabbi
Schudrich, touring the synagogue
building and chatting with con-
gregants both before and after
services, it no longer seemed sur-
prising to me that there is a thriv-
ing Jewish community in the heart
of Tokyo one that seems destin-
ed to keep the faith in the years
ahead for those far from home.

Interfaith Body Condemns
Unsolicited Conversion Activity
- The Interfaith Con-
ference of Metropolitan
Washington has issued a
statement condemning ef-
forts at religious conversion
which are deceptive or deny
the legitimacy of another
religion. Specifically con-
demned were deceptive
practices aimed at Jews.
The statement by the Con-
ference, which is made up of 29
Islamic, Jewish, Mormon, Protes-
tant and Roman Catholic "faith
communities" in Washington and
the surrounding Maryland and
Virginia suburbs, stresses support
of "the right of all religions to
share their message" with people
of other religions.
"But it is inappropriate for one
faith group to openly demean or
disparage the philosophies or
practices of another faith group as
part of its proselytizing," the
statement said. "Proselytism
which does not respect human
freedom is carefully to be avoided.
Proselytism must be done with a
sense of humility and a respect for

issued statements condemning a
specific occurrence, this is believ-
ed to have been the first general
statement issued by such a group,
according to Dr. Sidney Schwarz,
executive director of the Jewish
Community Council of Greater
Washington, and the Rev. Clark
Lobenstine, executive director of
the Interfaith Conference.
The Conference statement
noted that it felt "compelled to
speak out when a religious group
promotes or sanctions activities
that are harmful to the spirit of in-
terreligious respect and tolerance.
We condemn proselytizing efforts
which delegitimize the faith tradi-
tions of the person whose conver-
sion is being sought. Such tactics
go beyond the bounds of ap-
propriate and ethically based
religious outreach."
The statement added that
deceptive methods "are practiced
on the most vulnerable of popula-
Jewish Role
To Be Stressed
A high-ranking Spanish
government official said
here Wednesday (March 25)
that his government plans
to stress the contribution of
Spanish Jews to the
discovery of America in the
course of the quincentennial
celebrations of the event in
Luis Yanez, Spain's Secretary
of State for International
Cooperation, said at a special
briefing with Israeli reporters and
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that he visited New York last
week specifically to meet with
Jewish organizational leaders.
HE SAID that he discussed
with leaders of the American
Jewish Committee, the American
Jewish Congress and other
organizations his government's
plans to reinvoke the role of the
Jews in the discovery of America
by holding seminars, discussions
and congresses and by publishing
information on the issue.
"The response of the Jewish
organizations was very positive,"
Yanez said in reply to s question.
"FOR MANY years we ex-
perienced disinformation regar-
ding the role of Jews in modern
tions residents of hospitals and
old age homes, confused youth,
college students away from home.
These proselytizing techniques
are tantamount to coerced conver-
sions and should be condemned."
AS EXAMPLES, the state-
ment listed practices used by such
groups as Hebrew, Christians,
Messianic Jews and Jews for
"These groups specifically
target Jews for conversions to
their version of Christianity, mak-
ing the claim that in accepting
Jesus as the savior/messiah, a Jew
'fulfills' his/her faith," the state-
ment said. "Furthermore, by
celebrating Jewish festivals, wor-
shipping on the Jewish sabbath,
appropriating Jewish symbols,
rituals and prayers in their chur-
ches and, sometimes even calling
their leaders, 'rabbi,' they seek to
win over, often by deception,
many Jews who are sincerely look-
ing for a path back to their
ancestral heritage."
The Conference statement will
be distributed to some 2,000 chur-
ches and synagogues and
clergymen in the Washington
area, Lobenstine said, and will be
sent to some 300 interfaith groups
around the country.

Sephardi Haggadah Best
Example: The Sarajevo Edition
The Jews of medieval
Europe had their best sellers
too. In those days, a book sold
fewer copies but remained on
the list for a few centuries.
The Jewish best seller of 13th
and 14th Century Spain was
the illuminated Haggadah. Not
every Sephardi could afford to
have an illustrated book for his
Seder table on Passover, but
the number must have exceed-
ed the thirty or so surviving
Haggadot. Still, considering
the persecutions and forced
conversions from the late 14th
Century until the final expul-
sion in 1492, and the wander-
ing, resettlement and hard-
ships afterwards, thirty does
not seem so few.
Before the expulsion,
Sephardim were well in-
tegrated into the cultural life
of the Moslem and Christian
societies around them; this is
reflected in Hebrew literature,
architecture and the visual
arts. Much energy was
devoted to the art of the book,
its hand-written text, its
decoration and its leather bin-
ding. N ne of the Sephardi
scribes craftsmen left his
name in he manuscript in the
form i colophon, the
signature at the end
characteristic of medieval
books, which can be found in
some of the Hebrew Bibles
from Spain. That the artists of
Sephardi Haggadot were
Jewish is obvious from the
many illustrations which show
an intimate knowledge of
Jewish customs associated
with the Passover festival.
THE BEST known Sephardi
Haggadah today, the Sarajevo
Haggadah, was originally writ-
ten in Catalonia in the 14th
Century. It has survived
because its owner, whoever he
was, was wise enough to leave
Spain with it. The Ottoman
Turks welcomed Jews to settle
all over their empire; some
came to Sarajevo in
Yugoslavia by way of Salonica
in the mid-16th Century. The
Haggadah may have been in
the same family for centuries.
In 189-1, a Sephardi child, in
order to raise money for the
family alter his father died,
brought the book to school to
sell. It was purchased for the
newly-established Bosnian
National Museum for the
reported sum of 100 florins.
Four years later, a facsimile of
the Sarajevo Haggadah was
published in Vienna; from that
time on, several Haggadot
have been j-eproduced. They
have become gift books in our
times in all price ranges, from
the magnificent Golden Hag-
gadah, a limited edition of an
early 14th Century manuscript
in the British Library, shining
with gold leaf, to the more-
popularly priced Sarajevo
Haggadah, republished in col-
or in the 1960's in New York,
London and nearly every
European country including
It is still being reproduced in
Israel, often being given as a
gift to one's Seder host. So
Famous was this manuscript
that when the Nazis took Sara-
jevo in Apirl of 1941, as SS of-
ficer was sent to the museum
to take the Haggadah as a
prize. While the curator kept
the officer occupied, his
secretary spirited the Hag-
gadah away, and handed it
over to a villager who gave it
to his priest in Foca, on Mt. Ig-
man, where it remained until
after the war.
LIKE THEIR Ashkenazi
counterparts, Sephardi Hag-
gadot depict biblical and ritual
scenes, but there are major dif-
ferences between them, in ad-
dition to style. First, in
Sephardi Haggadot the biblical
iustrations, often from the
nnning of Genesis through
t *e Exodus, are grouped at the
nt of the Haggadah.
Sometimes two or four scenes
on each page form a con-
tinuous narrative. The style
and subjects came from il-
lustrated Latin Bibles and
books of the Psalms that were
made in France, but whose
popularity spread to Spain. To
these, Jewish legends were ad-
ded by Sephardi artists.
A second difference is in the
scenes of contemporary life. In
Sephardi Haggadot there are
more pictures of activities in
the synagogue: illustrations of
the service or the family leav-
ing the synagogue, the reading
of the Haggadah on the Sab-
bath preceding Passover, and
the distribution of matzah to
the congregants. They reflect
the essential role of the house
of worship in the Sephardi
By the 20th Century, few
Haggadot remained in private
collections. One outstanding
collector was Rabbi David
Solomon Sassoon (1880-1942),
born in Bombay to a successful
Baghdad mercantile and bank-
ing family. He lived in
England, as did his son, Kabbi
Solomon David Sassoon, who
came to Jerusalem in 1960,
where he continued his
father's scholarly and
charitable activities. In order
to raise money for Sephardi
educational institutions the
world over, he has been selling
off the 1,000 or so manuscripts
his father collected.
In 1975, when one of the auc-
tions took place at Sotheby's in
Zurich, a fund was established
in Israel to redeem some of the
books. The whole nation par-
ticipated in this campaign;
school children went from door
to door to help raise the money
to enable at least part of the
Sassoon treasures to reside in
Israel permanently. For-
tunately one of the
manuscripts, a 14th Century
Catalan Haggadah, is now in
the Israel Museum; six other
important codices are in the
Jewish National and Universi-
ty Library.
A Hebrew manuscript with
decorations costs at least
$300,000, if one happens to
come up for sale. A few of
them are exhibited from time
to time, and there are always
some on display at the British
Library in London and at the
Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
But fine reproductions can
now be enjoyed by all in
fascimile editions and in the re-
cent calendars and greeting
cards that have been published
in Israel.
