Dear Nomi:
As Father's Day approaches
I am thinking how my father
left me when I was about
eight. My mother raised me
and provided for me while my
father left the state without
paying child support. I was not
raised in an atmosphere where
I was encouraged to keep in

father himself never had a per-
manent address of his own
where I could reach him. Still,
I am torn inside. The Torah
says honor thy mother and thy
father. No matter what he has
done, above all, he helped give
me life. Should I send him a
father's day card despite the
fact that he has not been a
responsible father?

Federman being consoled by her son Harry
weeps during the dedication of a memorial
sculpture in Skokie, III., a Chicago suburb.
Mrs. Federman, one of Skokie's 7,000
Holocaust survivors, spent over five years in a
concentration camp. The 12 foot high bronze
sculpture is in the form of a freedom-fighter
guarding a mother, her murdered infant, a

rabbi and a child clinging to the rabbi's knees.
The sculpture was vandalized less than 21,
hours later. The word 'Liars' and swastikas
were emblazoned across the inscription, 'In
Honor of the Ghetto Fighters, the
Underground Resistance and the U.S. Armed
Forces Who Helped Defeat the Scourge of

memorial, dedicated last week,
was defaced with spray-
painted swastikas and
defamatory phrases before
daybreak Monday (June 1).
Police in the suburb, Skokie,
focus of a confrontation bet-
ween Holocaust survivors and
neo-Nazis in 1978, are in-
vestigating the crime, but have
no suspects.
The vandalism took place
sometime between 4 and 6
a.m., Monday, according to
Michael Kotzin, regional direc-
tor of the Greater Chicago
Regional Office of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
A routine police patrol
discovered it at 6:15. Kotzin
said the perpetrators must
have been hiding in bushes and
acted quickly. He did not rule
out the desecration being the
work of teenagers, exhibiting
"hostility and aggression.
Often, these young people
know they can hurt people,"
Kotzin said.
HOWEVER, he confirmed
the existence of various hate
groups operating in the
Chicago area, with splinter
groups ranging in size between
two and six persons each,
espousing neo-Nazi ideology.
There have been a few reports
of anti-Semitic literature and
fliers. But Kotzin said ADL
found a decrease in anti-
Semitic activities in the
Chicago area from 23 in 1985
to 14 in 1986.
The bronze monument is
located on the village green
between Skokie Village Hall
and the public library. It
features five figures: a mother
holding a dead child, a male
child embracing an observant
male Jew, and above them
with arms spread, a male
resistance fighter. On each
figure, swastikas were
sprayed in silver paint. Over
the words honoring "the
underground resistance and
the U.S. Armed Forces who
helped defeat the scourge of
Nazism" was painted the word
The monument, the work of
Detroit artist Edward
Chesney, was built after a
three-and-a-half-year fundrais-
ing effort by the Holocaust
Monument Committee,
established by the Holocaust
Survivors of Metropolitan
Chicago. Of Skokie's popula-
tion of 69,000 about half are
Jews, an estimated 7,000 of
whom are Holocaust

Skokie into the national eye
when they opposed a planned
neo-Nazi march through
Skokie streets in 1978. After

filiated with the National

small demonstration was held
instead in a Chicago park.

Holocaust Called 'Hoax'
Barbie Trial Spurs Hateful
Anti-Semitic Graffiti in France
PARIS (JTA) The trial
of Nazi war criminal Klaus
Barbie has produced a flood of
anti-Semitic graffiti and pam-
phleteering all over France,
much of it aimed at high school
students in the Paris area.
The most frequent claim is
that the Holocaust was a
Jewish hoax. A synagogue in
Nantes, a city of 223,000 in
northwestern France, had its
walls daubed with the words,
"Free Barbie" and "Hitler will
live for 1,000 years." The graf-
fiti was discovered Sunday
morning by Rabbi David
Azoulay. The local police are
Elsewhere, anonymous
tracts have appeared stating
that "No Jews were killed by
the Germans who deported
them to Eastern Europe
because the Jews were the
enemy of Germany."
The tracts add, "The Jews
opposed Hitler like they op-
pose Waldheim now, but a
thousand times more." The
reference is to President Kurt
Waldheim of Austria, who has
been accused of complicity in
Nazi atrocities when he served
in the German army in the
Balkans during World War II.
Barbie, charged with crimes
against humanity, is on trial in
Lyon where he was the war-
time Gestapo chief responsible
for the deportation of
thousands of French Jews to
death camps.

Is Reagan's Gulf 'Policy'
A Mistake?
Just where the Reagan Administration's
policy with respect to the Persian Gulf ap-
pears to be taking us is as difficult to assess
as is Reagan Administration policy in the
nearer Middle East. All of a sudden, the
President wants 11 Kuwaiti oil tankers to be
flying the American flag in their passage
through the Iraq-Iran war zone.
The object is for the American flag to
deter Iran from the kind of target practice
on the Kuwaiti tankers that it engaged in on
the USS Stark several weeks ago. But like
so much Reagan bluster, this is a pure
charade. Remember the "students" who
seized the U.S. Embassy in Teheran? The
sight of Old Glory flying above it did not
deter Iran then. Not for Jimmy Carter.
Nor did the presence of U.S. Marines in
Beirut stop anybody or anything from blow-
ing up some 260 of them. Not for Ronald
Reagan either. Or how about just plain old,
ordinary, everyday American hostages
whose kidnappings in Beirut have been in-
spired by the Ayatollah?
All of this should give us cause to wonder
if Mr. Reagan is making a mistake when he
believes that a U.S. flag on a Kuwaiti tanker
will make a safety difference to the tanker,
when a U.S. flag on the USS Stark did not.
Our Strange Friends
What is worse, if the President and his
shrewd aides are hell-bent on this dangerous
policy and Mr. Reagan has already
assured America's "allies" in Venice at an
economic conference this week that he is not
"bluffing" then the fact is that the
Kuwaiti tankers will have to be protected
without American air power, since the Per-
sian Gulf is too small for aircraft carriers.
But not only President Reagan, other
Presidents before him have long known that
the Gulf would be a tough place to protect as
an international waterway. It is precisely for
this reason that Washington has at least for
a decade made a profound effort to win the
right to base U.S. fighter planes and their
support forces in "friendly" countries in the
Among those of our "friends" who have
out-and-out refused us: the very Kuwaitis
whose 11 tankers Mr. Reagan is now deter-
mined to protect against Iranian attack;
and, of course, Saudi Arabia, to which the
Reagan Administration is now attempting
to sell another dozen F-15 jet fighters worth
a half-billion dollars on top of the AWACS
and numerous missile systems of several
years ago.
Biggest Bluff of All.
Indeed, it is this very Saudi Arabia which
refused to send up planes to force down the
Iraqi fighter that attacked the USS Stark
and killed 37 of its men.
The Saudis, constantly touted by Presi-
dent Reagan as America's "moderate ally"
among the Arabs in the Middle East, in fact
financially supports the PLO, refuses to
assist Egypt in a normalization of relations
with its Arab peers after the peace treaty
with Israel, and constantly warns away Jor-
dan from joining Israel and Egypt in an ex-
tension of peace efforts in the area.
As for the Kuwaitis, they taunted the
Reaganites into the President's latest mad-
cap policy by bringing the Soviet Union into
the Gulf area as Soviet flag guarantors of
three other Kuwaiti tankers. And with the
United States not to be outdone, and now
determined to guarantee 11 more,
Americans perhaps need reminding that
Kuwait's news media continually attack our
country with a virulence bordering on the
Most recently, Kuwaiti media accused
President, Reagan of being behind the at-
tack on the USS Stark because he "par-
Iraq) war.'
Why do these nations, the Kuwaitis and
the Saudis, get away with this kind of insani-
ty? Because our own insanity is to stand by
while the President talks to us about them
as if none of their sins against us are real.
And also plays his own brand of taps over
the "heroes" who gave their lives aboard the
Stark to protect America's "national securi-
ty" interests in the Persian Gulf because
our own insanity is to refuse to call it a lie
that these men, as Mr. Reagan has told us,
did not die "in vain."
Surely, they did, and not alone because
their deaths were the result of American
naval incompetence more so than of Iraqi
missile expertise, but because the Ad-
ministration continues its policy of speaking
aggressively while acting illogically. In
short, of acting without any policy at all.
When at Venice this week the President
said he was not "bluffing," that was perhaps
the biggest bluff of all.
South Beach Jews
Await Next Step in Area's Renewal
When Menachem Begin an-
nounced Project Renewal to a
gathering of Jewish leaders in
1976, he sprang it on them
unawares. The great dreamer
that he is, his idea for a part-
nership to better the lives of
Jewish people came from him
with no preamble and full
blown, much to the chagrin of
the UJA officials gathered at
the meeting.
They too are for the most
part, dreamers. But in addi-
tion to the dreamers there are
the "bean counters" who have
to deal with the nuts and bolts
of a program like Project
They asked for a year's
hiatus to organize the plan and
get it underway. They also
asked for a pledge from the
Israeli government that the
matching funds which Begin
had promised would be set
aside for the new program.
IN THE years which have
followed, Project Renewal has
had its ups and downs. There
are some spectacular success
stories Miami's Or Akiva is
among them and some real
flops. There are bureaucratic
horror stories and tales of
great individual ingenuity and
initiative. There are heroes,
funny fellows and villains.
Meanwhile, a lot closer to
home, the better than 20,000
Jews still living on South
Beach await the next series of
events in the continuing
revitalization of that area. For
some of them it will mean
dislocation and unhappiness.
For others, the gentrifica-
tion of the area will mean a
better way of life for them to
live out their twilight years.
There are pros and cons on the
plans and what it means to the
greater community as well as

grab you by the heart. You fly
to Israel. You are among your
people. You see the results of
Jewish money in a Jewish
land. Forgotten are all the ex-
cuses, all the anger at the
overzealous fund raiser. Here
it is. In flesh and blood, bricks
and mortar. Emotion runs
high. You can't wait to get
back home and tell the story,
to share the emotion of what
has affected you.
Stuff here at home is a lot
more mundane. The projects
of a community are important,
you know that. They have a
real impact on your life and
that of your neighbor, you
know that too. But it just does
not have that zest that the
overseas programs do.
Well, the life that you
breathe into local projects are
at least as important as the
rush you get from the ones in
Israel. A community operates
on its "soul," its neshama.
Dollars and cents are impor-
tant. They have to work. Both
on Project Renewal and the
local programs so vital to the
continuing growth of this

They must put tethers on the
dreamers lest they dream us
into a deficit beyond our
means to recover. It is the in-
teraction between these two
factions that make the
dynamics of a community.
Motivated by no more than
the dream that Jews are entitl-
ed to the best life, in Israel and
the United States, they dream
on, these dreamers. A set back
such as the foreclosure
South Pointe can give
pause, no doubt.
But, as Lee Iaccoca has
demonstrated, you cannot let
the bean counters run the
show. They have to put things
in perspective, but they cannot
be allowed to stop the
State of Israel a reality when
the bean counters of the world
said it could not happen. The
great Jewish communities of
the world including this one
grew in spite of the bean
counters who will always cry:
"we can't afford it!"
I am not advocating the
spending of money beyond the
Federation's ability to raise it.
I am saying that our greatness
as a people is that we can
dream and then we have the
capability to make it a reality.
The reality of a rebuilt Miami
Beach, of a growing communi-
ty with provision for its elderly
and its poor is as much a part
of Jewish life as the cities of

have a part to play. Perhaps
some of us are only "bean

there are dreams that need to
be brought to reality.
We are lucky enough to be
living in the latter half of the
20th Century, when we have
seen the near destruction of

definitive documentaries of
the Holocaust, the word he
coined to apply to the exter-
mination of six million Jews by
the Nazis.
The court listened in rapt at-
tention. The three magistrates
and nine jurors seemed spell-
bound. Prosecutor Pierre
Truche shut his thick Barbie
file and leaned forward, intent
not to miss a word. Only an oc-
casional sob from the public
gallery broke the silence of the
hushed courtroom.
The entire world knows
WiesePs history. Plucked from
a Hungarian village in 1944
and put aboard a sealed train
to the Auschwitz death camp
with his family, he alone lives
to tell the tale. He told it here
again, 43 years almost to the
day after his deportation and
three days before his son's
15th birthday, his own age at
the time.
that more than four decades
after the tragedy he fails to
understand its meaning. "I
still cannot understand how
these people, the sons of the
most educated and civilized na-
tion in Europe at the time,
could have produced these
killers," he said.
"I still fail to understand the
members of the Sonderkom-
mandos (the squads who car-
ried out the tortures and
murders) could have been doc-
tors, lawyers, artists, music-
lovers who had killed by day
and returned to their homes in
the evening to read poetry and
listen to classical music."
The Nazis were obsessed
with killing Jews, Wiesel told
the court. The deportation
trains carrying the victims to
death camps were given priori-
ty over military trains taking
troops, arms and supplies to
the Eastern front where the
German army was then falling
back under the Soviet counter-
minutes, but his words encom-
passed years of horrors.
"There are some things about
which I cannot speak, like the
death of my little sister, the
suffering of my father, the
death of my mother, lest I
start weeping," he said.
At that point, a lawyer pre-
sent read part of his state-
ment. Then Wiesel continued:
"We arrived at Auschwitz in
the afternoon. I remember it
all, the barbed wires stret-
ching to infinity, the screams
of the welcoming committee,
the shots fired by the SS, the
barking of their dogs and the
huge flames reaching up to
high heaven as if to devour it.
"I remember how in a little
forest near Birkenau I saw the
SS throw small, live children
into the fire. In the city of
Kiev, I saw a group of
laughing, German soldiers
stop a mother and her two
children. They took one of her
children and killed it before
her eyes. Then they took the
second and killed it as well.
SHE WANTED to die, but
the killers preferred her alive.
I can see her today as she then
picked up the two small bodies,
drew them close to her chest
and started dancing. How can
I narrate such a scene? How
can I understand the evil
which hurts more than pain?
"Maybe one of the worst
things which happened was to
see others suffer. For a son to
see his father in pain, for a
father to see his son tortured.
All the victims are my
brethren. We bear them love
and admiration," Wiesel
He added: "All the victims
were not Jewish, but all the
Jews were the victims. For the
first time in history an entire
nation, from the oldest to the
youngest, from the richest to
the poorest, were sentenced to
death. The aim of the enemy
was to uproot them, to erase
them from history, to kill their
very memory. 'Being a Jew
was a capital crime tor which
capital punishment was
"Even the Germans realized
the insanity of this situation.
An SS man told a Jew: 'Even if
you were to survive and tell
what happened, no one would
believe you.' "
"This is the problem,"
Wiesel said. "Who has not liv-
ed through it will never really
understand it. This trial is im-
portant to remind us of what
happened. Justice without
memory is incomplete. The
number of survivors is becom-
ing smaller every day. It is for
them, but also for the dead, for
their children and for yours
that this trial is important.
Forgetfulness is a crime just
like Auschwitz was absolute
In a way, with Wiesel's
testimony, the trial of Barbie
is practically over. What may

verdict itself could be anti-

He is 73, reportedly in poor
health. Under French law,
which allows the defendant to
be absent from his trial, Barbie
has boycotted the proceedings
since May 13, two days after
they started.
In his brief appearances in
the dock he personified the ar-
rogant, unrepentant Nazi,
claiming he was being held and
tried illegally. Many feel
outraged that he was not forc-
ed to be confronted by the
testimonies of Wiesel and
other witnesses.
His lawyer, Jacques Verges,
jolted and revolted the court
when he resorted to an ir-
relevancy to challenge Wiesel.
He asked the Holocaust sur-
vivor what he thought of
French collaborators.
"I did not live through that
period (in France)," Wiesel
replied. "I knew a generous
France which welcomed me
after the war. The trial of that
(wartime) France must take
place one day. It must confront
its memories, it must go
through a lucid examination of
its past. But not in this con-
text, not in the context of this
THE PURPOSE of Verges'
question then became ap-
parent. "Do you think that
Israel should in its turn do the
same for the murder of Arab
children in Deir Yassin?" the
lawyer asked.
Wiesel replied, "I am fully in
solidarity with Israel, and I
find it regrettable that the
lawyer of a man accused of
such horrible crimes as Barbie
is should accuse the Jewish
people. Is it all he has to say?"
TWO OTHER witnesses
followed Wiesel on the stand:
Ita Halaunbrenner, whose two
daughters were among the 44
Jewish children from the
village of Izieu deported to
Auschwitz by Barbie: and For-
tunee Benguigui, whose three
sons were in the same convoy.
Halaunbrenner, 86, said she
waited 43 years for this mo-
ment. She had even gone to
Bolivia with Nazi-hunter Beate
Klarsfeld in 1972 to try in vain
to have Barbie deported. On

After Testimony
Abrams' Administration Post Seems Weakened
The position of Elliott
Abrams, Assistant Secretary
of State for Inter-American
Affairs and one of the most
outspoken Jewish neo-
conservatives in the Reagan
Administration, appeared
tenuous Thursday (June 4)
after his two days of testimony
before the Senate-House Iran
Contra Committee.
However, Abrams, who ad-
mitted he had misled Congress
last year about the Ad-
ministration's aid to the Con-
tras, indicated at the conclu-
sion of his testimony Wednes-
day that he plans to remain in
his job.
George Shultz "seems to be
pretty satisfied with the job
I've done for him," he told the
committee. "That makes me
very happy and very proud."
Israel, Shiite
unidentified Israeli "senior
source" urged Israel to reach
an understanding with
moderate Shiite elements in
Lebanon while waging
unrelenting war against the
The source, quoted by
Haaretz on Sunday, drew a
distinction between Amal, the
mainstream Shiite militia, and
Hezbullah, the pro-Iranian
militants inspired by the
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
"If we don't fight Hezbullah
with determination and resolu-
tion, we will contribute to the
balance of the Shiite minority
tilting toward this extremist
organization at the expense of
Amal," he said.
Hezbullah is an enemy, just
like the Palestinian terrorists,
the source said, claiming that
both try to attack sites inside
Israel. Amal's targets are in
the south Lebanon security
zone, he said.
"We must' take into con-
sideration the continuing pro-
cess of erosion of Amal's
power. In the long term, Amal
is our only chance to reach a
reasonable agreement or
understanding with the
population of southern
Lebanon," he said.
Meanwhile, Maariv quoted a
Beirut radio report last Satur-
day that a booby-trapped car
driven by a woman exploded
Friday enroute to the security
zone. According to Maariv,
the incident is the first time
this year that Syrian-backed
leftist activists in Lebanon
have attempted a car-bomb at-
tack. Hezbullah abandoned
them on orders of the Shiite
religious authorities, Maariv

his formal judicial welcome as
federal court judge recently,
Marcus Einfeld and Rabbi Pin
chus Feldman affixed a
mezuzah to the judge's
chambers, an event believed
unprecedented in New South
Wales legal history.
This assessment was second-
ed later by State Department
spokesman Charles Redman,
who said Shultz "thinks
Secretary Abrams is doing a
sensational job, and he has full
and total confidence in him."
But several members of the
committee, including some
who praised Abrams, indicated
that the Administration may
have difficulty in getting ap-
proval for continued funds for
the Contras if Abrams is still
at the State Department when
the Administration makes its
request in September.
The 39-year-old Abrams is
the son-in-law of Norman
Podhoretz, editor of Commen-
tary, the magazine published
by the American Jewish Com-
mittee, that is considered the
intellectual voice of the neo-
conservative movement.
A FORMER aide to the late
Sen. Henry Jackson (D.,
Wash.) and Sen. Daniel
Moynihan (D., N.Y.), Abrams

Reagan in 1980, speaking

approval, Abrams was named
to that job.

Official Outrage
Settlers Attack Daheisha Refugee Camp
Israeli political and military
leaders have expressed
outrage over the armed attack
by Jewish settlers on the
Daheisha refugee camp near
Bethlehem Sunday night.
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin called the incident "a
scandal of top magnitude" and
condemned the "lawlessness"
of settlers who used arms
issued for their self-defense
for such purposes.

Peres said the attack on the
camp was "irresponsible and
unacceptable." Chief of Staff

disgusting act ever
perpetrated by Jews in the ad-

Israel Radio interview Monday

their own hands. "We shall do

Rabin criticized "certain
political elements" who have
been critical of military com-
manders. "This is an un-
precedented development and
all political factions should put

Minister said.

to the sharp attack Monday on

the names contained in the
files he received Monday.
Among them are Martin Bor-
mann, who was secretary of
the Nazi Party, Hitler's per-
sonal secretary and signer of a
protocol on October 2, 1940
which launched the Final Solu-
tion. He was sentenced in
absentia to life imprisonment
at Nuremberg on September
30, 1946. If he is alive, he
would be 87.
Another name was Otto
Abetz, the German Am-
bassador to Vichy who
deported 40,000 French Jews
to death camps on July 2,
1942. He was sentenced to life
imprisonment by a Paris court
in 1949 but was released five
years later. He died in an
automobile accident in 1958.
Also among the names was
Dr. Werner Vest, who
represented the Third Reich in
Denmark during the war and
ordered the deportation of
thousands of Danish Jews.
Most were spirited by the
Danes to neutral Sweden. Vest
was sentenced to death in
Copenhagen in 1946 but was
released in August 1951. He
was tried again in 1969 but
released in 1972 for health
reasons. He is still alive.

But Rabbi Urges Peace Efforts
leader of American Reform
Jewry strongly condemned

warned at the same time that
the efforts for peace between
the world's two superpowers,
the avoidance of nuclear con-

Rabbi Alexander Schindler,
president of the Union of
American Hebrew Congrega-
tions (UAHC), addressed a
conference of the Interna-
tional Physicians for the
Prevention of Nuclear War.
He and Father Theodore
Hesburgh, former president of
Notre Dame University, were
invited to participate in the
conference by Dr. Bernard
Lown of Boston, president of
the physicians' group which
won the 1986 Nobel Peace
Prize. The theme of the con-
ference is "Religion and
Ethics in the Nuclear Age."
Schindler bore down hard on
the Soviet Union's "severe
strictures on the right of
Jewish emigration" and its
"trampling" on the religion
and culture of Soviet Jews,
"denying them books, the
schools, the teachers and the
language required for its
BUT "having protested
these and other civil rights in-
justices, we must not fall into
the trap of joining the shrill
voices of those who wish to
sink the Soviet Union and
America into incendiary
rhetoric and reciprocal
military confrontation."
Schindler stressed that
"protest and peace are not
mutually exclusive. If we
swallow our protest for the
sake of peace for the sake
perhaps of not offending the
governments of our East
European delegates then
the frail peace will be over-
turned by the writhings of the
injustice itself," Schindler
"But if we abandon the
peace in the name of protest
by becoming cold-war warriors
and urging an acceleration of
the arms race then the pro-
test corrodes into an immoral
Schindler was critical of both
the U.S. and the USSR. "Each
of the superpowers arrogantly
considers itself to be Jacob,
the one worthy of Isaac's
blessing, the one capable of
carrying the values of the pre-
sent into the future. And each
considers the other one to be

that would sell his principles

now as the great powers at-
tempt negotiations, and we
pray for their success yet
there can be no genuine end to
the obscenity that we know as
the arms race until
'glasnost' (openness) becomes
a way of life rather than an ex-

Depressed Rabbi
Should Board Readmit Him To Central Conference?
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Jason Huebsch, an
Evanston, 111. freelance public
relations person, has taken on
a very controversial client
himself. Huebsch, who was or-
dained as a rabbi by the
Hebrew Union College in Cin-
cinnati in 1973, is publicizing
his struggle to gain readmis-
sion into the Central Con-
ference of American Rabbis.
Huebsch, who resigned from
the organization in 1978 and
has tried three times to gain
readmittance since 1980, con-
tends that he has been refused
on the basis of a handicap,
which, he says, is a breach of
Federal law.
HUEBSCH WAS diagnosed
in 1980 as having a condition
known as depressive illness, or
chronic depression. This condi-
tion, often caused by a
chemical imbalance, can be
treated with medication and
psychoanalysis. Huebsch is
currently on medication, under
the supervision of a
psychiatrist whom he sees for
15 minutes every three weeks.
Many famous people, among
them prominent politicians,
poets and musicians, have this
condition, according to
Huebsch. "Other members of
the Central Conference of
American Rabbis have the con-
dition as well," says Huebsch,
who cites Rabbi Jacob Rader
Marcus, honorary president of
the organization, "as one of
my sources for this
So the question of why

by the Conference as an unac-
ceptable candidate for

he has 'ability to serve.'
membership remains.
Huebsch, in his article, "Han-
dicaps and Stigmas: The Per-
sistence to Endure and the
Spirit to Excel," answers this
question by calling the Con-
ference's reason for refusing
him admission "a hoax." He
does not say why.
member of the conference
automatically in 1973 when he
was ordaineu as a rabbi. From
1973 to 1974, he was spiritual
leader of Temple Berith
Shalom in Troy, N.Y., but was
formally asked to leave
because, according to
Huebsch, "I followed a saint
(the late Rabbi Julius Gutman)
and was compared un-
favorably. The congregation
said that they wanted dynamic
change, but they didn't. I mov-
ed too fast. Irm not a par-
ticularly patient personality."
Asked about who inherited
his pulpit, Huebsch replies that
Rabbi David Fass served there
for five years, and was suc-
ceeded by a woman rabbi who
has been serving there since
then "for a number of years
The Conference did not give
Huebsch any placements after
he lost his pulpit in Troy, N.Y.,
which was the reason Huebsch
handed in his resignation in
"THEY HAVE a brokering
resource for finding pulpit,
academic and chaplaincy jobs.
It was a case of blackballing. I
was outspoken, independent
a bit of a rebel," explains
Huebsch, who fails to identify
what he means by "indepen-
dent" or to describe what he
was "outspoken" or a "rebel"
against. Huebsch wrote a let-
ter seeking readmission into
the Conference. He received
an answer of "categorically
In 1985, Huebsch reapplied,
and at his insistence, met with
the admissions committee. He
spoke with the committee
about his illness, and says
"everyone was respectful. A
few were empathic. But ten
days later, Huebsch received a
telephone call and was told
that "the reason we are not ac-
cepting you is your depressive
illness and handicap," accor-
ding to Huebsch.
ON THE advice of Ex-
ecutive Vice President of the
Conference Rabbi Joseph
Gla8er, Huebsch says that he
went to do volunteer work at
seven different congregations
in order to demonstrate his
competency in a synagogue
situation. Then in April of this
year, he wrote the admissions
committee and asked to reapp-
ly for the third time to become
a member.
Not content to await the
decision, Huebsch tried to rally
support from his colleagues in
the area and called each
member of the admissions
committee "to lobby and give
my perspective."
The answer that Huebsch
alleges he received was an un-
signed memo stating that:
"The superabundance of mail
and telephone calls from you
and about you convinced the
members of our committee, as
well as many of the people
whom you solicited, that you
are unable to demonstrate the
self-control necessary for pro-

Kahane Ousted
From MK Seat
Meir Kahane, leader of the
Kach Party, was ousted Mon-
day from the Knesset for
refusing to take the oath of
allegiance to parliament and
the State as required by law.
Knesset Speaker Shlomo
Hillel said Kahane would be
barred from entering the
Knesset building as a member
and stripped of his right to
speak or vote in Knesset
The Knesset House Commit-
tee will decide later whether
Kahane will lose other
privileges such as free
postage, travel, telephone and
housing allowances. The Com-
mittee is waiting for the
Supreme Court to rule on
Kahane's appeal against his

If it stands, his privileges
may be revoked retroactively
to the date of his election to
parliament in 1984. That
means Kahane would have to
reimburse the Knesset for
allowances paid to him since
When Kahane entered the
Knesset chamber Monday he
was summoned to the podium
by Hillel to take the oath.
Holding a Bible open to the
Book of Psalms, he said, "I do
undertake" the proper
response but added "to ad-
mit the supremacy of the
It was the second time
Kahane refused to pledge
allegiance to the State. When
he was sworn in to the Knesset
three years ago, he used the
same formula. The oath at that
time was administered by
Yosef Burg of the National
Religious Party, who said he
heard the words, "I do so
undertake" and accepted them
as satisfactory.
But Attorney General Yosef
Harish ruled that if Kahane
again refused to take the pro-
per oath he should be removed
from parliament.

'Demographic Specter' Cited As Danger To Israel and Zionism
Haifa University academicians
warned Thursday (June 4) that
if Israel continues the policies
it adopted in the administered
territories when they were
captured in the Six-Day War
just 20 years ago, the result
will be a fundamental change
in the nature of Israel and
abnegation of the basic prin-
ciples of Zionism.
Prof. Arnon Sofaer, speak
ing at a university-sponsored
symposium a day before the
20th anniversary of the out-
break of the war, spoke
ominously of the
"demographic specter."
THE RATIO between the
Jewish and Arab populations
in Israel and the territories has
remained constant over the
past two decades because of
large-scale Arab emigration
from the territories and a
strong Jewish immigration
movement, he said.
But now, Arab emigration
has almost ceased, the Arab
birthrate is rising, and there
has been a growing
phenomenon of Jewish emigra-
tion from Israel, Sofaer noted.
If this continues, by the end of
the century Israel will be a bi-
national state, not a Zionist
state, he said.
"It's a nightmare," he said,
as there are already more
Arab than Jewish children in
the territories. According to
Sofaer, the Jewish settlement
movement in the territories
proved not to be what was pro
mised. "Even if we were to ac-
cept the Gush Emunim claim
of 60,000 Jewish settlers in the
West Bank, that was the
Arabs' natural increase there
in two years. In the Gaza
Strip, the entire Jewish settle-
ment was offset by one
month's natural increase
among local Arabs," he said.
trends demand a reconsidera-
tion of how we expend our
capacities whether Israel
has the power to extend its
forces over everything and
everywhere, or to concentrate
our efforts in the Galilee, for
example, where we have inter-
national legitimation," he said.
Prof. Sami Smoucha observ-
ed that the past 20 years of
Israeli rule over West Bank
Arabs has proven that they
cannot be absorbed into Israel
as Israeli citizens. "The option
of their gradual absorption is
not valid," he said.
Dr. Gabriel Ben-Dor, rector
of Haifa University, warned of
the effects of the Six-Day War
on Israeli society. "I feel that
the state of affairs in which
there are hundreds of
thousands of hewers of wood
and drawers of water without
political rights in Israel cer-
tainly is not something which
contributes to the health of
Israeli society," he said.

United Nations, Binyamin
Netanyahu, told an overflow

'Soviet Glasnost:' A Policy in Name Only
"Glasnost:" Russian for and repmnhnsiToH in tho rinoi Darents. children and sihlino-a
"Glasnost:" Russian
"openness." That's the cur-
rent buzzword in the Soviet
Union, used by the Soviets to
encourage a perception of a
new, more liberal and open
policy under the leadership of
Mikhail Gorbachev. For the
Jews of the Soviet Union,
however, "glasnost" has been
disappointing thus far.
Only 914 Jews were permit-
ted to leave the Soviet Union-
in 1986, compared to 1,140 in
1985 and 51,000 in 1979.
Although our hopes were rais-
ed when Anatoly Scharansky
was released in February 1986
(on the eve of our 1986 Soviet
Jewry Plea), apprehension
prevailed concerning the situa-
tion of thousands of other
Soviet Jews and Prisoners-of-
Conscience (POCs).
Approximately 380,000
Soviet Jews are estimated to
have taken the first step in the
emigration process by re-
questing and receiving an af-
fidavit (VIZOV) from Israel.
About 11,000 members of this
group are "refuseniks" an
individual who has been refus-
ed an exit visa at least once
and often numerous times.
Many refuseniks have been
waiting as long as 15 years to
be reunited with families. In
April of 1986, a Moscow
specialist, lecturing a principal
Soviet propaganda body the
Znaniye Society
acknowledged that 10 to 15
percent of Soviet Jews cur-
rently would seek to emigrate.
Since the latest official Soviet
census numbers the Jewish
population at 1.8 million, that
specialist implicitly
acknowledged that between
180,000 and 270,000 Jews
could be expected to emigrate.
Yet official pronouncements
still talk about "a few thou-
sand" applications waiting to
be processed.
The good news was that
several prominent former
POCs and long-term
refuseniks were allowed to
emigrate during 1986.
However, these releases were
granted belatedly and
delivered with a cynical twist.
For example: Mikhail Shirman
waited for a needed transplant
from his sister, Inessa
Fleurova. Inessa was finally
granted permission to leave
the Soviet Union too late to
save her brother who died
David Goldfarb and his wife
were finally allowed to leave
the Soviet Union aboard the
private plane of Occidental
Petroleum Chairman Dr. Ar-
mand Hammer. Sixty-eight-
year-old Goldfarb was found to
be suffering from lung cancer
and offered tragic proof that
he had not received adequate
medical attention in the Soviet
Union. Yosef Begun was
released from prison as was
Vladimir Lifshitz neither
have been permitted to
emigrate. Alarming news con-
tinues to reach the West of the
physical abuse of several
Jewish prisoners, especially
Aleksei Magarik (whose father
went to Reykajavik to plead
for his son) and Yuli
As well, the religious vise
has been tightened. Holding
sabbath services and holiday
celebrations, attending
religious study groups or
synagogue services, organiz-
ing private study groups and
meeting with foreigners, are
all basic rights as defined in
the Helsinki Accords of 1975
and reemphasized in the final
document of the 1983 Madrid
follow-up conference. Despite dreds of thousands from every
parents, children and siblings.
This alone condemned hun-
this, holiday periods and
private Judaic religious study
continue to be prime targets of
official pressure. Soviet Jews
again found it difficult to
celebrate Passover in 1986
because of a shortage of mat-
zah. The Purim holiday was
marred in Riga by KGB raids
on private homes where
celebrations were being held
(Indianapolis travelers visited
some of these celebrants in
Riga last September). Jewish
educators have been warned
by government officials that
they are violating Soviet law
by teaching. The policy of
alleged "glasnost" has not
made it any easier for Jews in
the Soviet Union to practice or
study Judaism.
Still another blow at emigra-
tion to Israel was struck by the
issuance of the codification of
emigration decree issued by
the Supreme Soviet in
November. This decree
codified the strict practices
which had been operational
since 1980, allowing Jews to
leave only on the basis of fami-
ly reunification, rather than as
a fundamental human right. It
now fixed in law the narrow
definition of "family" as
applying for, much less receiv-
ing, permission to leave; The
new decree left Soviet
authorities with absolute
power to reject applications
for emigration and it ignored
many of the human rights pro-
visions of the Universal
Declaration on Human rights
and the Helsinki Accords, to
both of which the Soviet Union
is a signatory.
Nonetheless, the changes
which are occurring in Soviet
society are worth noting and
monitoring. While only 98
Jews were permitted to leave
the Soviet Union in January,
146 left in February, and 150
left during the first 15 days of
March. There have been no
new arrests of Jews since July
of 1986 and those who monitor
the level of state-sponsored
anti-Semitism have reported a
significant decrease. At the
same time, between 200 and
300 new applications to
emigrate from Jews who ap-
plied after the new emigration
decree went into effect, have
been refused.
It remains for the Soviet
Union to demonstrate that
there is substance to its much-
heralded promise of "open-
ness," as well as to show that
it lives up to its international
commitments. To do that, it
must free the Prisoners-of-
Conscience, grant visas to
thousands of refuseniks and
begin issuing visas to the hun-
dreds of thousands of Soviet
Jews who have applied for
emigration. If "glasnost" is to
be anything other than a myth
or an empty promise, it must
be backed up with action.
And it remains for us to do
our part. We must continue to
focus relentless Western at-
tention and pressure on this
issue and we must continue to
publicize the cases and fates of
individual refusenik families.

Palestinian Editor
Eyes Jerusalem Council or Knesset Seat
Hanna Seniora, the Palesti-
nian editor who seeded a storm
of controversy with his an-
nouncement last Thursday
that he would seek a seat in
the Jerusalem City Council in
the next elections, appears to
be having second thoughts.
He told the English Sunday
edition of his newspaper, the
East Jerusalem Arabic daily
Al-Fajr, that his decision to
run was not final. He said his
announcement was, in fact, in-
tended to shock the Israeli and
Palestinian communities and
force them "to think.'"
Seniora, 49, a leading in-
tellectual and supporter of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion though not a member, said
his announcement was not
coordinated with the PLO.
IT DREW fierce criticism
from pro-PLO elements. The
East Jerusalem daily A-Shaab,
which reflects the views of the
radical wing of El Fatah, call-
ed Seniora's plan naive and
Al-Fair published an article
by Fayik Barakat, chairman of
the Arab Chamber of Com-
merce in East Jerusalem, who
accused Seniora of col-
laborating with the annexation
of East Jerusalem by Israel
and said his announcement
was a "bad idea."
Seniora said Thursday that
he intended to organize a
Palestinian list to run in the
Jerusalem election, which is
scheduled for September,
1988. On Friday, Seniora went
a step further, telling an inter-
viewer that he might seek a
Knesset seat in the future.
He said that was not to be
ruled out "if the occupation is
prolonged." Seniora said he
subscribed to the ideas of Dr.
Sari Nusseibeh, a professor at
Bir Zeit University in the West
Bank, who has exhorted
Palestinians to use their
demographic edge in Israel's
democratic processes to
achieve their political aim,
which he said is "national
SENIORA SAID this is just
a theory at present, but could
become the blueprint for a
pragmatic political challenge.
Nusseibeh, however, has
dissociated himself from
Seniora's initiative, calling it a
"one-man show" that has not
been sufficiently debated.
Nusseibeh told the
Jerusalem Post Sunday that
the plan could become realistic
if two conditions were met.
First is sponsorship of the
PLO as part of a broader de-
mand for political rights for
Palestinians in the ad-
ministered territories as a step
toward the creation of a bi-
national state.
Second, he said, is failure of
the Middle East peace process.
A stalemate could prompt a
new Palestinian strategy
whereby the PLO would be
transformed into something
like the African National Con-
gress aspiring for equal rights
under an Israeli
Seniora's only serious
Palestinian backing came from
Mayor Elias Freij of
Bethlehem, a moderate who
has long urged Palestinian-
Israeli cooperation.
THE IDEA was welcomed
by Israeli moderates, including
Mayor Teddy Kollek of
Jerusalem, who called
Seniora's announcement a
welcome development.
Minister of Immigration and
Absorption Yaacov Tsur, a
Labor Party dove, also saw
merit in Seniora's plans. He
said it pinpointed Israel's
future dilemma if it retains
control of the West Bank and
Gaza Strip.
"If we were to annex the ter-
ritories, we would have to
choose between abandoning
the Jewish character of the
state or abandoning its
democratic character," Tsur
said, adding "both are unac-
ceptable to me."
Israeli hardliners denounced
Seniora's possible candidacy.

Emunim said the editor must

avowed opponent of
Jerusalem's status as Israel's
