Double Setback For Peres
His Mideast Peace Conference Plan, Election Hopes Both Stalled
REMEMBRANCE: An Israeli soldier, armed
with an assault rifle, stands at the flowered
grave of a loved om in a cemetery in
Jerusalem during Israel's Memorial Day.
Next to him stand a couple at another grave
embracing in their own grief.
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres suffered a severe set-
back last Wednesday, (May
13). THe Inner Cabinet failed
to approve his proposals for an
international conference for
Middle East peace, while pro-
spects dimmed that the
Knesset would vote to dissolve
itself and open the way for ear-
ly elections.
Peres, who was scheduled to
fly to the U.S. Wednesday
night for a brief visit, postpon-
ed his departure until Friday,
but refused to concede defeat.
The Inner Cabinet, the govern-
ment's top policy-making
body, comprised of five Labor
and five Likud Ministers, did
not vote on Peres' plan
Wednesday because the
Foreign Minister, anticipating
a 5-5 deadlock, did not submit
it.
BUT AFTER meeting for
less than three hours follow-
ing an inconclusive 4 *h hour
debate Monday (May 11)
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
stated that since the Peres
prooposal had not come up for
a formal vote, it must be seen
as having been rejected and
henceforth no Minister may
pursue it in diplomatic con-
tacts abroad.
Peres called that interpreta-
tion"illegal," maintaining that
since there was no formal vote,
the situation was unchanged.
"Let us ask the nation to
decide" by disbanding the
Labor-Likud coalition and elec-
ting a new Knesset, he
declared.
Peres was supported by
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, who argued that the
unity government was no
longer committed to its basic
policy guideline the pursuit
of peace and therefore must
be dissolved.
The two Labor Party leaders
took the same line speaking to
reporters after the Cabinet
session. "What the Prime
Minister says, with all due
respect to him, is tantamount
to the cessation of the peace
process. He speaks of direct
negotiations with Jordan, but
everyone knowns this is not a
practical prospect it is
doomed to failure," Peres said.
KING HUSSEIN of Jordan
has consistently refused direct
negotiations with Israel out-
side the framework of an inter-
national conference. Peres in-
sists he has an understanding
with Hussein that an interna-
tional conference "opening"
will be followed immediately
by bilateral negotiations with
Jordan.
On Tuesday, Shamir de-
nounced the entire idea as
"criminal and stupid "and said
it must be expunged from the
agenda. Laborites said their
coalition partnership with
Likud is no longer viable and
Peres has challenged Shamir
to take their dispute to the
electorate.
But a survey of the pivotal
small parties last Wednesday
indicated that labor would be
unable to muster enough votes
to dissolve the Knesset as long
as Likud is determined to
preserve the government.
At the same time Labor Par-

Israeli Military Officials Predict Renewed Attacks From Lebanon
-
TEL AVTV (JTA) -
Israeli newspapers quoted
senior military sources
Wednesday who predicted an
escalation of attacks and at-
tempted hostage-taking by ter-
rorist groups operating in
Lebanon.
According to the sources, a
group known as the Salvation
Front will try to seize hostages
for bargaining purposes. It
does not want to lag behind the
Palestine Liberation Organisa-
tion which carried out the two
most recent attempts, the
sources said. They also
predicted new attempts to in-
filtrate Israel by sea and more
Katyusha rocket attacks on
Israel territory.
A report in Haaretz offered
a breakdown of the principal
terrorist and guerrilla groups
active in Lebanon. The Palesti-
nian organizations have 10,000
fighters at their disposal scat-
tered throughout the country.
The largest is Yasir Arafat's
El Fatah, with 4,000 armed
men.
Haaretz said some 3,000 ter-
rorists operate in the Sidon
area, including 2,500 Arafat
loyalists. Another 2,500 ter-
rorists are in the Beirut area,
including 1,500 members of El
Fatah.
There are 500 terror t,s in
Tyre, including 150 Fatah; 700
in the Tripoli area; and 1,500
in the Bekaa Valley in eastern
Lebanon, all members of the
Salvation Front Haarett
reported.
According to the report, a
Palestinian with military ex-
perience who enlists in El
Fatah is paid 6,000 Lebanese
Pounds a month (about $300).
Members of the various
Palestinian militias received
$100 a month.
The mainstream Shiite
Moslem military organization
is Amal. which has between
5,000-6,000 fighters in South
Lebanon, Haaretz reported.
Several hundred more Amal
figthters operate in the Beirut
area, mainly in the Moslem
western part of the city, they

made T-54 tanks supplied by

Magen David Adorn National Blood Center Dedicated
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
RAMAT GAN, Israel The
new Magen David Adorn Na-
tional Blood Service Center
was dedicated here on May 7, a
$16 million state of the art
facility that will supply 100
percent of the blood required
by the Israel Defense Forces
and more than 85 percent of
the blood needs of hospitals
throughout the country.
A delegation of 150
members of the MDA support
group in the U.S., the
American Red Magen David
for Israel, flew to Israel for a
week of special ceremonies
and the dedication to celebrate
the success of ARMDI's
largest project to date, a
13-year drive which raised $14
million that enabled the crea-
tion of the new blood center.
SMALLER delegations
from Canada, Great Britain
and South Africa also attended
the ceremony in this city, just
outside of Tel Aviv. MDA sup-
port groups from those nations
raised about $2 million for the
project.
"This vital facility with its
advanced scientific equipment
will serve the people of Israel
well into the 21st Century,"
said Joseph Handleman, na-
tional chairman of ARMDI.
Magen David Adorn is the
Israeli Red Cross, and its
many nationally-appointed
responsibilities include the
provision of blood services,
ambulances and emergency
medical care centers
throughout the nation. Almost
all of the ambulances in Israel
were donated by American
supporters.
THE 21,000-square foot
blood center, housed in blast -
resistant quarters, will provide
Israel's Central National
Blood Bank and blood frac-
tionization laboratories for the
separation of blood into com-
ponents such as plasma and
gamma-globulin.
"Blood is the soul, the spirit,
the very essence of being,"
Israel President Chaim Her-
zog said during an address at
the dedication ceremony. "It
will, I'm sure, serve all the
peDple of this land and the
brotherhood we strive to see

the crowd watched the unveil-
ing of a monument that is to be
a permanent part of the plaza
in front of the blood center.
The sculpture, by world-
renowned artist Nathan
Rapoport, who also created
the Holocaust memorials at
Yad Vashem and the Scrolls of
Fire in the Judean Hills, was
gifted by Sally and Joseph
Handleman.
'?BROTHERHOOD of
Man" depicts two brothers em-
bracing in a wheat field. It is
the sculptor's powerful com-
mentary on behalf of sharing,
love and peace.
"Since there is no color
distinction in blood,"
Handleman said, "it is most
appropriate to have this sym-
bolic monument placed in front
of the new MDA National
Blood Center."
The Ramat Gan blood center
replaces the one in Jaffa,
which was established in 1956
and which had become over-
crowded and antiquated, ac-
cording to Dr. Aaron Kellner,
president of the New York
Blood Center, and a consultant
to MDA in the planning and
construction of its new center.
"THE BUILDING was a
disaster." Kellner said. "If

that building had been in the
United States, the Health
Department would have torn it
down in 10 minutes.
"The new center is a
modern, state of the art facili-
ty that will rank with any of
the leading blood suppliers in
the western world, Kellner
said.
Yet there is more work to be
done, said Benjamin Saxe, ex-
ecutive vice president of
ARMDI.
"It's just beginning," said
Saxe. "We put up a body
without a soul, and now we
have to help them put a soul in
the body, and the way to do
that is to raise funds to equip it
and staff it."
Many of the delegates atten-
ding the ceremony were
dedicated supporters of ARM-
DI and had made major dona-
tions toward the blood center.
"I am so emotional because
it was a dream for such a long
time," said Jacqueline
Goldman, the wife of mor-
tgage broker Nathan Goldman
of New York. "We toiled and
we worked and we planned.

We wanted the very best for
this part of the world, and it is
the most modem and up-to-
date facility in the Middle
East."
GOLDMAN SAID she
wanted to join an organization
that was involved with the en-
tire State of Israel. MDA, she
said, has the young and the
old, the rich and the poor, from
border to border.
"It is in my mind a canopy of
love and life all over the na-
tion," Goldman said. "And it is
survival. And since I lost 22
members of my family in the
Holocaust, and since I've
never recovered and overcome
those memories, for me, the
need for survival is the
essence.
"MDA is survival," Goldman
said. "It is an organization
that does not try to make a big
splash. It carries its work
rather discreetly but
efficiently."
While in Israel, the group
learned that MDA had planted
200 trees in the Jewish Na-
tional Fund's Jerusalem
Forest in honor of ARMDI.
AS HUNDREDS of sup-
porters gathered in front of
the blood center for the dedica-
tion, the flags of their respec-
tive nations flew alongside the
Israeli flag. The Israel Defense
Forces band performed.
"It is with unbridled joy that
we are gathered here today,"
Handleman told the en-
thusiastic crowd.
"May I echo the constant cry
of every Jewish heart in the
diaspora: Long live the State
of Israel," said David Ross,
chairman of the MDA support
group in Great Britain.
At a banquet preceding the
dedication ceremony, Eliezer
Shostak, Speaker of the
Knesset, and former Minister
of Health, said that without
the MDA support groups the
project might never have been
completed.
"As you all know, the mis-
sion of an organization like
Magen David Adorn or the Red
Cross is to save lives,"
Shostak said. "MDA is not
restricted to any time or place.
Besides the five wars we were
forced to fight in the face of
our very existence, MDA has
saved thousands of lives.
"EACH AND every one of
you can take pride in your
achievement. Blood is life. The
emergency blood center that
you built here will give life,
chayim, so let me bless you
with the everlasting blessing
of L'Chayim to life."
Pearl Stahl, national ARM-
DI director, said some 100,000
supporters in the United
States assist MDA. There are
162 ARMDI chapters in the
United States. ARMDI was
established 48 years ago.
"Help from the diaspora,
mainly the U.S.A., has helped
bring a primitive ambulance
service into the 20th Cen-
tury," said Stahl. "I look at it
this way. When MDA sounds
its siren, you are bringing a
rescue team to help someone
on the scene. Even the drivers
are trained in first aid."
MDA DOES its share of pro-
viding service by utilizing
some 5,000 volunteers to ad-
minister first aid and drive the
ambulances, as well as to work
at MDA's first aid centers,
which handle many cases that
otherwise might have added to
the load at hospitals.
Throughout ARMDI's tour
in Israel, an MDA ambulance
followed the three busloads of
members. Every time an MDA
ambulance passed by, Bob
Schwartz, ARMDI regional
director'' for Florida and
Georgia, would proudly shout,
"There's MDA.*
The Israeli government
made MDA responsible by law
in 1950 for blood needs of the
country, although MDA had
been doing it since 1935,
Schwartz explained.
MDA was created in 1918
when 500 volunteers in
Palestine formed an auxiliary
of the Jewish Legion to pro-
vide medical care for Jewish
soldiers. The country, by then
under British Mandate, had no
First Aid services and no am-
bulance services.
TO FILL the need, seven
public spirited men on May 7,
1930 established a First Aid
Society bearing the name
Magen David Adorn.
MDA is now a nationwide
organization and provides
Israel's only training program
in first aid for adults and
youth. Over 300,000 adults
receive such training in 25
centers annually. The goal is at
least one member in each fami-
ly be trained in first aid.
Many young people begin to
volunteer with MDA during
their high school years, and it
is not uncommon to see a

dozen teen-agers waiting for
ambulance calls at one of the
nation's 61 First Aid Stations
or 150 sub-stations on 24-hour
alert. MDA also provides
Israel's only Bloodmobile net-
work for the collection of blood
for volunteer donors.
THE AMBULANCES, of
which about 60 to 70 a year
come from the United States
and between eight and 10 from
South Florida a year, cost bet-
ween $29,000 for a basic am-
bulance and $53,000 for a
mobile intensive care unit. The
ambulances bear the donor's
name and city. Last year,
ARMDI sent MDA about $4
million. There are MDA sup-
port societies in 22 countries
around the world.
MDA still has its problems
both domestically and interna-
tionally. On the homefront,
workers staged a strike at the
Blood Center site in Jaffa,
claiming they are underpaid.
MDA, in addition to the 5,000
volunteers, has 900 paid
employees.
On an international level,
MDA supporters have decried
what they claim is political
double dealing because the In-
ternational Societies of Red
Cross have recognized the

Shavuot 'Feast of Weeks'

By MIRIAM SOBEL
With the approach of
Shavuot, our thoughts natural-
ly turn to blintzes, boscht and
potatoes, and other diary
culinary delights.
But why isn't it customary to
eat meat on Shavuot as it is on
other joyous holidays?
"The Jewish people in an-
cient Israel had not time to
prepare meat before Shavuot,
so they ate dairy," says Rabbi
Irving Spielman, of the Jewish
Community Center of Fort
Lee, New Jersey.
AGRICULTURAL
FESTIVAL
At that time, Shavuot was
primarily an agricultural
festival. To our ancestors, who
were mostly farmers, Shavuot
marked the end of the grain
harvest after the wheat and

Striving for Understanding
By STANLEY M. LEFCO
3 In 1928 Al Smith ran for president on the Democratic
:|:- ticket. He was the first Catholic to seek the highest office
:: in the country. That acrimonious presidential contest with
: its charges or anti-Catholocism led to the formation of the
g National Conference of Christians and Jews. Its founder,
g Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes, declared that its pur-
Si pose would be to "build bridges of understanding among
" people of different backgrounds." The NCCJ is one of the
more recognized organizations, but like so many others,
most people are not aware of its varied programs.
It is probably best known for its sponsorship of dialogues
_ between Christians and Jews to promote understanding ..
i between the two groups. Recently, for example, the local 5
: chapter held a program, focusing on the Greek Orthodox '.
worship service. Another major event and NCCJ's chief
fund-raising project is its annual Brotherhood Awards
Dinner.
Campus Kaleidoscope is one of its national programs.
Discussions are held on college campuses on such issues
as human rights, nuclear war, poverty and hunger. It also
one of the sponsors of the civic observance of Yom

S
is
| Hashoa, the Days of Remembrance.
Regional director of the Georgia chapter, Jimmy Harper,
I is planning a program known as Any Town, Ga. During a
one week summer camp, about 60 high school juniors and
\ seniors study and discuss such issues as rascism, drugs, and :
| religious prejudice.
Nationally, NCCJ has 77 chapters. Its president is Jac- |
queline Wexler, who is serving her sixth term and was |
former president of Hunter College in New York. The local |
j chapter has a board of 75 members. A minimum contribu- :;
tion of $25 will make one a member of the local group. In :g
the Atlanta area it has approximately 1,000 contributors. :
Harper, who recently became this area's director, brings $
j:j a new dimension to the organization. Born in Birmingham, |
% he served eight years in Alabama as a Southern Baptist
I minister. At the University of Alabama, he was a professor i;!:
% of history and philosophy. He also taught for three years at %
% Miles College, a predominantly black school. While a doc- |
!: toral student in history and religion at Alabama, he met his :j::
wife, who is Jewish. They are raising their daughter as :!:
Jewish and observe the Jewish holidays. ::
Harper demonstrates a particular sensitivity to the :
Holocaust. "Until Christians learn to deal with the :;
Holocaust, Christian theology will have little credibility," ^
he notes. He also believes that there is still a great deal of :
anti-Semitism, which he categorizes as "theological anti- $
Semitism." He points to those parts of the Christian :
religion which deal with deicide, the anti-Semitism in the ig
New Testament, and the notion that the church became g
Israel. Specifically, he cites the gospel of John as contain-
ing anti-Semitic references.
A typical day for Harper centers around program plann-
ing, financial development, which is a never ending process
for non-profit organizations, and working now on a pro-
gram for international human rights day. His primary
goals and focus are a youth conference, brotherhood and 'i
sisterhood weeks, and a human relations think tank to ex- g
plore the needs in the city.
Harper, who attends many Jewish events, stresses, "The ^
strength of the United States is in her diversity. It's this
diversity that strengthens democracy." g

Leadership group of the Atlanta GA Federation.

barley were stored away, for
the sub-tropical climate of
Israel ripens grain crops in the
Spring. In the fall, they
celebrated Succot, a second
harvest festival which comes
at the end of the fruit season.
Shavuot day was observed
with home feasts and Temple
ceremonies. Pilgrims in the
thousands from all parts of the
country streamed to
Jerusalem to partake in these
ceremonies. In the Temple, a
special cereal sacrifice of two
loaves baked from the new
crop was offered. It was ac-
companied by appropriate
ceremonies, singing of hymns,
and playing on harps and other
musical instruments.
Shavuot was also the
Festival of First Fruits, or
Hag Habikkurim, and the
pilgrims brought with them
the first of the barley, wheat,
grapes, figs, pomegranates,
olive oil, and honey. The
Mishnah has a vivid descrip-
tion of this aspect of Shavuot.
"How are the BIKKURIM
selected?" the Mishnah asks.
It answers: "When a man
comes down to his field and
sees a ripe fig, or a ripe cluster
of grapes, or a ripe
pomegranate, he ties each
with a red thread, saying,
'These are BIKKURIM.' r'

ting seven weeks from the se-
cond day of Passover, the holi-
day being celebrated on the
50th day. Later, when a fixed
calendar was accepted, the
sixth of SIVAN was
designated as the date which,
each year, falls exactly 49 days
after the second day of
Passover. Thus Shavuot or
"Feast of Weeks" has remain-
ed the popular name of this
holiday.
TORAH FESTIVAL
At the time when Rome con-
quered nation after nation,
and Israel among them,
Shavuot took on an additional
meaning. After the Temple
was burned, and thousands
were killed, exiled or sold into
slavery, the Jews ceased to be
a self-governing nation in their
own country.
But the Jewish leaders and
teachers of the time proved
farsighted; they put their faith
into Torah and learning as a
way of saying the Jewish peo-
ple. The great Rabbi Akiba
taught that, just as fish cannot
live out of water, so the Jewish
people cannot survive without
Torah.
About this time in Jewish
history, a further meaning of
Shavuot gradually came to the
fore. According to tradition,
the Ten Commandments had
been given to the children of
Israel on Mount Sinai in this
season of the year. It was a
stupendous, far-reaching
event in the life of the Jewish

Double Setback For Peres

ty leaders made clear that they
would not secede from the uni-
ty government and "abandon
the Defense portfolio to Arik
(Ariel) Sharon," the most ex-
treme hawk among Likud
Ministers.
HAIM KAUFMAN, chair-
man of the Likud Knesset fac-
tion, said in a radio interview
following the Inner Cabinet
meeting that Peres is obliged
now either to support the
Prime Minister's policies or
lead his party out of the
government.
Likud appears to have suc-
ceeded in lining up enough
Knesset votes to defeat a
dissolution motion. The ultra-
rightwing opposition Tehiya
Party, which introduced its
own motion to dissolve parlia-
ment this week, is now siding
with Likud because Shamir
was standing "firm as a rock."
The Shas religious party is
reluctant to dissolve parlia-
ment and spoil its chances of
returning to the government
after a five-month absence.
Its leader, former Interior
Minister Yitzhak Peretz,
resigned in January over a
halachic conversion disDute.
AHARON Abu-Hatzeira of

opposed early elections.

New York with represen-

"And it came to pass on the
third day, when it was morn-

and lightnings and a thick
cloud upon the mount, and the
voice of a horn exceeding loud;
and all the people that were in
the camp trembled. And Moses
brought forth the people out of
the camp to meet G-d; and they
stood at the nether part of the

JFWISH FAMILY SERVICE OF RROWARD COUNTY
Jewish Family Service of
Broward County is a
storehouse of information of
where and how to get help.
Primarily for senior citizens,
we receive requests ranging
from physician referral and
home care to recommenda-
tions for senior living facilities.
Home care rquests include
relief for the primary
caregiver of a homebound
family member or assistance in
personal and/or household
management. In lieu of referr-
ing out to home health care
agencies, Jewish Family Ser-
vice has contracted with these
agencies to provide services
directly through our agency.
Services include light
housekeeping, shopping
assistance, meal preparation,
personal hygiene care,
assistance with daily living,
and on occasion transporta-
tion. The purpose of home care
is to provide the elderly an op-
portuntiy to live at home as
long as possible and as in-
dependently as possible.
However, the majority of re-
quests came from adult
children whose parents are no
longer able to remain at home.
Our I and R (information and
referral) worker Thelma
Mansdorf recommends either
retirement homes or nursing
homes based on the clients
needs and capabilities. Most of
the facilities are personally
visited by Thelma prior to
recommendation.
Retirement homes, known
as Adult Congregate Living
Facilities (ACLF), are residen-
tial facilities designed to serve
the needs of adults who can
live independently, but due to
age or illness, need assistance
in their daily living routines.
ACLFs, usually lower in cost
than nursing homes, assist
those people who fall between
living-at-home and a nursing
home. Nursing homes, on the
other hand, are for persons
with chronic or debilitating il-
lnesses requiring extensive
nursing care in order to main-
tain or restore health. Nursing
homes provide rehabilitation,
custodial care and 24 hour nur-
sing services. Many requests
come in for nursing homes,
when an ACLF is actually
more appropriate and the op-
posite also holds true.
I and R work is primarily
telephone consultation,
however, we offer in-office
visits for those clients that
prefer to speak to a worker in
person. There is a fee for in-
office visits. All fees are on a
sliding scale.
I and R is only one of the
services offered to Broward's
seniors and their families. For
more information, on how
Jewish Family Service can
assist your family, call
749-1505 in Fort Lauderdale
or 966-0956 in Hollywood.

Students examine Jewish
moral issues from two perspec-
tives. These issues can provide
the basis for a broader
generalization about Jewish
ethical thinking, in which a
consideration of specific ex-
amples clarifies the overall
ethics of Judaism. Studies can
also provide a detailed glimpse
of the Jewish approach to a
specific moral concern, a hand-
book for Jewish moral
response.
Two of the four books
reviewed here fall into the first
category. Meir Tamari's
survey of Jewish Ethics and
Economic Life offers an inter-
pretation of Jewish response
to economic issues purported
to reveal the "separate and
distinct Jewish economic man
molded by religious law and
communal practice." The
superficial nature of the book,
however, can be revealed in
the weak, unreflective, and un-
convincing apology offered
that "man" is used in a generic
sense. The detailed study of
questions of wealth, competi-
tion, wages, banking, taxation,
welfare and environmental
issues offers many interesting
facts bound together by a
superficial and rather tenden-
tious theological glue. Tamari
shows a lack of intellectual
sophistication in a disorganiz-
ed use of sources, overly vague
reference to theological ethics,
and uncritical examination of
basic issues.
A more profound view of
Jewish economic concerns can
be found in Aaron Levine's
Free Enterprise and Jewish
Law (Ktav). Better introduc-
tions to the sources of Jewish
economic decision making are
in Menachem Kellner's Con-
temporary Jewish Ethics and
Basil Herring's Jewish Ethics
and Halakah For Our Time
(Ktav). Economic History of
the Jews (Schocken), edited by
Nachum Gross, and drawn
from the Encyclopaedia
Judaica offers a better survey
of the history of Jewish
economic thought.
Moshe Halevi Spero's Hand-
book of Psychotherapy and
Jewish Ethics, on the other
hand, presents a stimulating
collection of essays that offer a
valuable framework within
which to understand
psychotherapy as a valid ex-
pression Jewish legal con-
cerns. Many readers will mine
this book for insights into the
Jewish response to issues such
as the appropriateness of
psychiatric hazard as the basis
for legal decision-making, the
ethical validity of radical at-
tempts at behavior modifica-
tion, the correct treatment of
male and female homosexuals,
and the violation of the Sab-
bath for psychological healing.
A more important value of
the book, however, lies in its
study of "forbidden thoughts"
in Judaism and the way that
study justifies therapeutic
techniques of psychotherapy.
The general reader might find
the book a bit daunting. Cer-
tainly a reading of Spero's
previous book, Judaism and
Psychology will facilitate
understanding this one. Some
chapters here may be of in-
terest only to specialists in
psychology. Some readers may
feel distanced by the use of
traditional halachic terms,
even though they are always
explained. Although difficult
reading, the book is certainly
rewarding and valuable.
The other two books fall into
the category of "handbooks."
Rabbi Albert S. Axelrad, long
a Hillel director at Brandeis
University and associated with
draft counseling for Conscien-
tious Objectors, has produced
a handbook for those seeking
CO status. With the renewal of
draft registration, such a book
is now, unfortunately, a
necessity. The book offers a
line-by-line explanation of how
to demonstrate the sincerity
and religious depth of an in-
dividual's pacifism, and pro-
vides examples of previous CO
applications.
My personal agreement with
Rabbi Axelrad's ethical stance,
however, does not blunt a
recognition of certain limita-
tions to the usefulness of the
book as a guide to Jewish
responses to the problem of
war. The illustrations from
Jewish tradition are oriented
towards answering "tough
questions" such as how Jews
can support Israel and yet be
pacifist, how the bloody was of
the Bible can be consistent
with pacifism, and how Jews
can be pacifists in the light of
the need to have fought Hitler.
(Among the pacifists not in-
cluded by Axelrad is Maurice
Friedman, whose pacifism in
World War II should be taken
as a paradigm example of
religious commitment by a
Jew.)
The book cannot be recom-
mended as a balanced presen-
tation of Jewish views of war
and peace. For a corrective
view, readers should look at
various essays by J. David
Bleich, Maurice Lamm, David
Novak, and David S. Shapiro.
Fred Rosner's Modern
Medicine and Jewish Ethics of-
fers an up-to-date considera-
tion of Jewish responsa on
bioethical questions. The book
restates, with new data, the
approach of Orthodox Judaism
to bioethical questions as ex-
pressed in Rosner's previous
works and anthologies, as well
as those by his colleagues such
as J. David Bleich and Im-
manuel Jakobovits.
His treatment of such ques-
tions as medical profes-
sionalism, contraception, ar-
tificial insemination, abortion,
euthanasia, suicide, autopsy,
and smoking, evolution, or the
criteria for death summarizes
the relevant literature clearly
and represents recent thinking
done since his earlier works.
His orientation is clearly tradi-
tional and halachic, but his
work is always informative.
The question to be asked of
this work, as of his earlier
ones, is that of the audience to
which it is addressed. Jewish
scholars do not need the book.
Orthodox Jews should always
consult their rabbinic
authorities before making
medical decisions. The book
seems more appropriately a
contribution to on-going moral
discussions. As both scholars
in religious ethics and the
general public debate ques-
tions of medical morality, Jews
need to know how to con-
tribute to such discussions.

ting the horrors of the
Holocaust.
By PAULA HYMAN
The Jewish civilization of
Europe, whose destruction
Shoah carefully chronicles, had
a history stretching back over
1,000 years. On the eve of the
Holocaust more than half the
Jews of the world lived in
Europe. The nine million
European Jews were a diverse
group, living in a wide variety
of political and cultural
conditions.
Before the outbreak of
World War II, fewer than 1.5
million Jews lived in Western
and Central Europe, where
they constituted a tiny propor-
tion of the total population.
West European Jews had con-
tributed to the economic ex-
pansion of their countries and
had often entered the urban
middle class. Some had risen
to prominence in the academic
world, the arts, business and
politics. Though as Jews, they
retained their own religious,
charitable and cultural institu-
tions, they were virtually in-
distinguishable from their
Gentile neighbors in dress,
language and public behavior.
The approximately eight
million Jews in Eastern
Europe constituent a higher
percentage of the general
population and were more
distinct and visible as a minori-
ty. More Jews lived in Poland
than in any other European
nation; in the 1930s they ac-
counted for fully 10 percent of
the Polish population and 30 to
40 Dercent of the populations
as
shopkeepers and artisans.
Some had begun the process of
cultural integration into the
larger society, but most lived
among their fellow Jews,
spoke their own language (Yid-
dish) and maintained a tradi-
tional Jewish lifestyle.
Despite mounting
discrimination and anti-
Semitism, the interwar era
was a time of remarkable
Jewish creativity in Eastern
Europe. Many forms of Jewish
culture, including journalism,
poetry, theater, political
movements, youth groups,
Hebrew and Yiddish schools
and rabbinic learning flourish-
ed up until the Nazi onslaught.
By 1933, Jews throughout
Europe had achieved many
goals for which they had been
struggling for almost 150
years. In all the countries of
Europe they enjoyed the
rights of citizenship. Yet,
despite their political and
social advances, they found
themselves particularly
vulnerable. Economic depres-
sion and rising nationalism led
many to blame the Jews for
their misfortunes. Adolf Hitler
took advantage of these trends
and rose to power in Germany
in 1933 partly on the basis of
his anti-Semitic platform.
Between 1933 and 1939
Hitler with little opposition
turned the Jews of Germany
(and later Austria) into an im-
poverished and rightless
minority by removing them
from governmental positions,
stripping: them of citizenship

9. 1938, known as the "Night
of Broken Glass," a wave ol
anti-Jewish violence
throughout Germany resulted
in the destruction of Jewish
stores and synagogues and the
death of 92 Jews.
In most countries conquered
by the Nazis, the Jews were
forced to wear a yellow star,
deprived of civil rights and
property and concentrated
together. The Jews of Poland
were herded into crowded,
walled ghettos in the major
cities. Death rates in the ghet-
tos were very high, owing to
dreadful sanitary conditions
and starvation-level rations.
When Hitler's Germany in-
vaded the Soviet Union in June
1941, mobile killing units of
the Nazi army began the first
systematic extermination of
the Jews. In January 1942,
Hitler and his aides decided
upon the "Final Solution to the
Jewish Problem": the mass
murder of all of European
Jewry. From the summer of
1942 through the summer of
1944, as Shoah grimly records,
the Nazis invested precious
labor power and resources to
deport Jews from all parts of
Europe in sealed railroad cars
to slave-labor and death
camps.
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The Inner Cabinet met behind
closed doors Monday to debate
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres' proposals for an inter-
national conference for Middle
East peace and a counter-plan
by Premier Yitzhak Shamir
based on the Camp David
accords.
The outcome is likely to
determine the fate of the
Labor-Likud unity coalition
government. No word of the
deliberations emerged from
the Inner Cabinet which com-
prises five Labor and five
Likud Ministers. Peres told
reporters before the meeting
that he had no deadline for a
decision but hoped the debate
would not be drawn out.
While the Ministers were
closeted in their session, Labor
and Likud fought the issue in
the Knesset, which was in the
first day of its summer session.
Mutual recriminations were
hurled by those members pre-
sent. But the session was so
sparsely attended that acting
Speaker Meir Cohen-Avidov of
Likud adjourned it early in the
dav.
Meanwhile, Leo Tindemans
of Belgium, the current Presi-
dent of the Council of
Ministers of the European
Economic Community (EEC)
who is visiting Jerusalem,
sought to influence Israeli opi-
nion in favor of an interna-
tional conference.
In fact, the Saudis explicitly
endorsed the condition Jordan
imposed on the PLO renun-
ciation of violence and accep-
tance of United Nations
Security Council Resolutions
242 and 338 by the PLO.

Seattle Boy On List For 2nd Liver Transplant

By CRAIG DEGGINGER
SEATTLE, Wash. (JTA)
Alexander Tufel, a
16-month-old Jewish boy from
Seattle, has been placed on the
active list for a liver
transplant, which would be his
second. He is listed in serious
but stable condition after
undergoing successful liver
transplant surgery last Tues-
day at UCLA Medical Center
in Los Angeles, according to a
medical center spokesman.
"He came through the
surgery well, with no com-
plications," the boy's father,
Alben Tufel, said last week. He
said doctors were waiting to
see if Alexander's body would
accept the new organ. "All
transplant patients show some
signs of rejection," he said.
"The question is, how strong
will the rejection be?"
The spokesman said there
were "serious signs of
rejection."
ALEXANDER was bom
Jan. 1, 1986 without a bile
duct, a condition called biliary
atresia. The bile duct drains
the liver. He had surgery to
fashion a bile duct, but a
serious infection damaged his
liver, necessitating the
transplant.
Alexander and his mother,
Dianne, moved to Los Angeles
in January to be near UCLA
when a donor liver became
available. Her husband stayed
in Seattle to care for the cou-
ple's two teenage children and
continue his work as a teacher.
More than $3,000 has been
raised in the Jewish communi-
ty here through the efforts of
the Tufels' synagogue, Temple
Beth Am, and The Jewish
Transcript newspaper to help
with the family's non-medical
expenses.

Eage 12 Tlte Jtewtoh Ftoridian of South Broward-Honywood^riday, May 22,1987
Magen David Adorn National Blood Center Dedicated
Continued from Page 3
Dorothy Wiltschek, a member
of the Hashomer Chapter of
ARMDI in Hallandale, to make
her first trip to Israel.
"I have been wanting to go
to Israel for a long time," said
Mrs. Wiltschek. "I have never
been a professional Jew where
you wear your Judaism like a
flag. I never really was involv-
ed with any of the Jewish
organizations," she added.
"I NEVER heard of ARM-
DI. I knew the founder of the
Hashomer Chapter, and she
asked me to be secretary. The
more I lived with ARMDI, the
more I became committed to
it. When I realized what the
ambulance service does and
the amount of people they take
care of, it's a gigantic job, and
it needs the support of
everyone."
ARMDI members arrived in
Israel about a week before the
dedication and spent their first
evening in Jerusalem at a
special Shabbat dinner hosted
by Jacqueline and Nathan
Goldman. The dinner was at-
tended by Israel Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin. The
centerpieces on the tables in-
cluded miniature MDA
ambulances.
The group attended special
ceremonies marking Israel's
Memorial Day last Saturday
night and Sunday that was
followed by Independence
Day, and took tours of
historical sites. A special ban-
quet followed in the Chagall
Room of the Knesset. The gala
farewell banquet was preceded
by a Havdallah and Reaffirma
tion Service by the Western
Wall. Members of the group
huddled in the cool night air,
raising their flourescent green
candles above their heads, and
making the toast ending Shab-
bat and their visit to
Jerusalem.

Water with nothing added, nothing taken

Israel Supplying Weapons, Aircraft to Guatemala
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel
is supplying weapons and
military aircraft to Guatemala
on a business basis without the
Israel government's involve-
ment, Haaretz reported last
Thursday. The newspaper
quoted Guatemala's Defense
Minister, Gen. Hector Alejan-
dro Gramajo Morales as telling
its correspondent at an inter-
view in Guatemala City that
his country has "broad
military relations" with Israel
conducted by private Israeli
businessmen, not on govern-
ment levels.
Gramajo said his country
receives "several basic items
for our army. We benefit from
these relations which are
primarily commercial,"
Haaretz reported.
Asked if Israel was
Guatemala's main source of
arms, he replied, "It is a supp-
ly source for us, but I wouldn't
say that it is the sole supply
source, and I wouldn't say that
it's the most important.
Guatemala receives arms
from other countries, in-
cluding Taiwan and South
Korea. Gramajo said, accor-
ding to Haaretz.

Demanded
By MICHAEL SOLOMON
MONTREAL (JTA) Joe
Clark, Secretary of State for
External Affairs, has called on
East Germany to pay compen-
sation to former German Jews
now living in Canada for the
confiscation of their property
by the Nazis during World
War II.
Clark, who requested some
$4 million while visiting East
Berlin last week, told East
Germany's leader, Erich
Honecker, that Canada sup-
ports a World Jewish Con-
gress call for a moral payment
for wrongs inflicted by the
Nazis during the Holocaust.
Canada, Clark said, wants a
lump-sum payment for the
confiscation of property owned
by Canadians of German des-
cent, but East Germany said it
prefers to look at the matter
case-by-case. Officials in the
Canadian Embassy ii East
Berlin told reporters th^t East
German Foreign M..lister
Oskar Fischer did not respond
directly to Clark's request.

Over 400 dignitaries attended a testimonial dinner dance at the
Omni Hotel honoring Senator Sherman Winn (left) and his wife,
Roslyn, for their 21 years of service to the South Florida com-
munity. The testimonial presented by Chairman Harry Rosen,
(right) was for the benefit of Temple Israel ofMiramar, where the
Winns have been members for the past 12 years.

e was nothing
>ecial about Sam.
I guess thafs what made him so special to me. You never
noticed him, buthewas always there to help. And then
after 37 years, I had to bury hint"
Levitt-Wanstein. We know there's no way we can
make it better. But we can make it easier... with a
tradition of over four generations of family-
owned, family-operated, personal service.
"Of course my children were there to comfort
me, but Levtit-Weinstein also was like family
and took care of each little detail. They don't
just honor the departed. Levitt-Weinstein also
cares for the living"
\Ne know that the grief is enough for you to
handle. So we handle everything
else... with personal service
and unequalled value.

Because life goes on.
