Bishops Join Anti-Waldheim Stance
POPE AND WALDHEIM: Photo above was taken on October 5,
1985 when Pope John Paul II met with a former UN Secretary
General Kurt Waldheim at the Vatican. The annouvted official
visit of Waldheim, now President of Austria, to the Vatican on
Thursday this week has stirred up indignation among Jewish
communities around the world.
'Higher Authority'
Says Hebrew National IS Kosher
Hebrew National Kosher
Foods Inc. of New York is de-
nying a charge by the New
York State Department of
Agriculture and Markets, ac-
companied by a $39,800 fine,
that the company sold non-
kosher meat under a kosher
label in June 1985.
Isidor Pines, president of the
81-year-old company, said in a
press conference last week
that the company has filed suit
in New York State Supreme
Court here against the Depart-
ment for "altering an official
document and seeking to pro-
secute an alleged violation on
such an alteration. We further
charge that the Department
has acted irresponsibly by
releasing false information,
creating misleading innuendo
and attempting to convict
Hebrew National in the
THE DISPUTE began with
a routine, unannounced inspec-
tion of the Hebrew National
plant in New York City on
June 19, 1985. One of the in-
spectors wrote in a report that
he found "boneless meat soak-
ing in hot water," which the
Department now says
rendered the meat non-kosher.
But while at Hebrew Na-
tional, the inspector wrote
that he and the plant's night-
time kashrut supervisor ques-
tioned an employee about the
hot water, and were told "so-
meone fooled with the water."
The Department allowed the
meat to be processed and sold,
and the plant was found to be
in compliance with state
kashrut regulations.
BUT ALMOST two years
later, on May 8, 1987, the
Department of Agriculture
sent a letter to Hebrew Na-
tional stating that two years
previously the company "had,
in a stainless steel tank, ap-
Eroximately 100 pieces of
oneless meat soaking in hot
water, thereby rendering the
meat non-kosher."
Hebrew National was fined
$39,800 to be paid within 10
days or else "evidence of the
alleged violation would be for-
warded to the Attorney
General of the State of New
York for the recovery of the
maximum penalty allov by
law, or for such other act ion as
he may conclude the facts war-
rant." Hebrew National refus-
chbishop John May of St.
Louis, president of the Na-
tional Conference of Catholic
Bishops, said in a statement
issued here Monday that "the
motivations of (Pope John Paul
II) need to be clarified" regar-
ding his audience with
Austria's President Kurt
Waldheim in the Vatican
The Pope's decision has rais-
ed a storm of controversy
among Jewish leaders and
organizations across America
and internationally, who con-
sider Waldheim to be "an
unrepentant Nazi."
IN HIS statement, Ar-
chbishop May appeared to be
giving these Jewish
spokesmen support in their de-
mand last Friday that the
Pope meet with them for a
"substantive" discussion
before his Sept. 11 meeting in
Miami as part of a papal cross-
country American tour.
"I am aware of the sensitivi-
ty of this (the papal audience
with President Waldheim) and
related issues for the Jewish
community in the United
States and throughout the
world," May said in his state-
ment, thus throwing the sup-
port of U.S. Catholic bishops
behind American Jews.
Despite protests from Israel
and Jews around the world,
the Vatican insisted Tuesday
that the papal audience with
Waldheim would take place as
pected to meet with Pope John
Faul in the Vatican for approx-
imately one-half hour and be
given full honors.
Following his statement in
Washington, Archbishop May
emphasized that the U.S.

ed to pay, and the letter is now
in the hands of the Attorney
Hebrew National's attorney,
David Ellenhom, plans to
argue in Court that the
Department altered the report
of its inspectors by crossing
out a check mark in the "In
Compliance" column and
writing in a new check in the
"Out of Compliance" column.
Rabbi Schulem Rubin, director
of the Kosher Law Enforce-
ment Division of the Depart-
ment, said the document is
"inconsequential to the case."
IN ITS SUIT, Hebrew Na-
tional is also claiming that the
charge is "designed to
retaliate against Hebrew Na-
tional" for relocating its
operations from its plant in
New York to one in In-
Rabbi Tibor Stern
dianapolis, causing Kubin a
"loss of jurisdiction."
However, Rubin asserts that
the Department has control
over all products sold in New
Pines said that Hebrew Na-
tional "received no indication
from the Department as to
why the report was changed.

Still Indifferent
Barbie Listens to Horror Tales
With Amused Smile on Face
LYON (JTA) In or out
of court here, where he is on
trial for crimes against
humanity, Klaus Barbie con-
tinues to show indifference to
his alleged victims' sufferings
and to the trial itself.
In court, where "the But-
cher of Lyon" last appeared on
June 6, he listens to the horror
stories of his interrogations
and ensuing deportations with
a half-amused smile. In his cell
at St. Joseph Prison here, he
sat throughout last week glued
to his television set watching
the French Open tennis
AT ONE POINT, his prison
wardens became so upset with
his indifference that, contrary
to prison regulations, they con-
fiscated his TV. The practice in
France is to allow non-
sentenced prisoners, or those
still awaiting sentences, to
watch TV and read
newspapers at will. Prison
authorities refused to com-
ment on this incident, but
some wardens have privately
told newsmen that "now that
the tennis tournament is over"

the set has been returned to
Barbie's cell.
Barbie's absence has
frustrated most of the victims
and the plaintiffs lawyers and
it has somewhat taken the trial
off course. Former victims,
witnesses and lawyers address
an empty dock and the defense
lawyer, Jacques Verges, who
occasionally barely manages to
hide his glee at this paradox.
Prosecutor Andre Truche
has not requested that Barbie
be present for the entire trial,
but has on several occasions
tried to make him reveal some
of his hidden personality and
explain how he became a con-
vinced Nazi in the 1930's. He
also prodded Barbie to explain
some of the tenets of National
Socialism and his own attitude
to its racist theories.
LAST FRIDAY, when Bar-
bie made one of his brief ap-
pearances in court, Truche
told him: "In years from now
people will see a film of this
trial (the proceedings will be
released in 20 years).
"They will hear the
testimonies, and they will pro-
bably ask themselves, 'Didn't
he have anything to say? No
explanation to offer?' Maybe
even your own grandchildren
or great grandchildren might
research into the past of their
families and try to understand
what had happened. Don't you
think that you should
Barbie, true to the stance he
had adopted since May 13,
when he claimed that he was
"a hostage illegally brought to
France," remained silent. He
only repeated his by now stan-
dard retort, "Nichts zu sagen,
Herr President" (I have
nothing to say, Mr. President).
The trial has entered a se-
cond phase. For the first four
weeks, the court, nine jurors
and three judges heard
testimony from former victims
mainly Jews who often hob-
bled to the stand and poured
out more than 40 years of
pent-up frustrations. Now the
court is hearing witnesses
described as "of general in-
terest," mainly historians,
researchers and former
leaders of France's wartime
anti-German resistance forces.
THE trial began on May 11

Catholic Church has little in-
fluence on the Vatican's
diplomatic decisions. "Ob-
viously, I have no competence
to speak" for it, he declared.
But he added: "I do want to
express my hope that plans for
the meeting in Miami between
Jewish leaders and the Holy
Father will continue despite
the serious concerns raised by
some that the intention of the
Holy Father to receive Presi-
dent Waldheim will impact
negatively on the Miami
May emphasized that Thurs-
day's papal audience "did not
initiate" with the Pope and
that the meeting is "in keeping
with the standard practice of
the Holy See to receive duly
elected political leaders."
WITNESS: Marie Claire Vaillant Couturier
arrives at the Lyon Patois de Justice to testify
before the court in the trial of former Gestapo
Chief in Lyon Klaus Barbie. She was deported
AP/Wide World Photo
to Auschwitz and Ravensbruck and was a
French witness in 1945-46 during the trial in
and is expected to end July 3
or 4. Among the latter
witnesses was the late French
President Charles De Gaulle's
niece, Genevieve DeGaulle-
Anthonioz, 66, herself a
former deportee to
Ravensbruck, a notorious
women's concentration camp.
Testifying Tuesday, she said
that babies were often drown-
ed in buckets of water shortly
after birth at the camp and
that conditions were so horri-
ble that most women preferred
to see their children dead
rather than survive for
another few weeks, or months
at the most.
Verges privately says that
his client still hopes that the
Bolivian Supreme Court will
decide that his extradition was
illegal and ask France to
return him.
Truche last week told Bar-
bie, "One thing is certain, you
will never see Bolivia again."

Strong As The Weakest Link
Shlomo was a celebrity when
he arrived in Israel nine years
ago. He was eight years old
and had escaped from Syria by
walking across the mountains
to Turkey. Everyone first at
the Netanva absorption
center, and then in Jerusalem
where he settled with his
parents seven brothers and
sisters wanted to hear his
But when the stories were
told,. Shlomo no longer drew
audiences. Not even his
parents, struggling to build a
new life, had time to listen to
him. He fell behind at school,
skipped class and fell fur-
ther behind. His anger against
home and school mounted. By
the time he was 14, he was
rarely anywhere but on the
street, at the fringe of a gang
of older boys.
It's at this point that
Shlomo's story takes a dif-
ferent turn from that of an
estimated 15,000 to 20,000
Israeli teenagers, currently
heading down the road to
delinquency. He was befriend-
ed by a streetworker, who
brought him to the
Preparatory Center for Youth
Studies usually called the
Interim Station in
downtown Jerusalem.
"The Station's aim is to help
Shlomo and youngsters like
him to cope, both educationally
and socially to reach a level
where they can fit into socie-
ty," says Lisa Kaufman, coor-
dinator of Youth and
Technology Projects for the
American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee-
"It doesn't teach him a trade
or award him a diploma. There
are other places to do that.
What the Station does do is
make him believe in himself
and fit in: arrive on time, dress
tidily, and be part of a group,
without disrupting activities or
wrecking the surroundings."
"Shlomo was 16 when he
came to us," says Rami
Sulimani, the Station's direc-
tor. "He was big, tough and
angry. But protected inside a
very surly exterior was a hurt
child, whose main life-
experience had been failure
and rejection. We told him he
was welcome at the Station
one day a week, and could
choose what he wanted to do
That first day, Shlomo joined
the ceramics group. He molded
damp clay into an ashtray,
baked it hard, and took it home
a deliberately simple project
designed to give him a sense of
"He remained tense and
jumpy all through that first
year, says Sulimani. "He
never once arrived on time,
and he drifted from group to
group. He bored of ceramics,
and tried cookery. He tired of
that and moved to our hair-
dressing class. He shied away
from arithmetic and language
classes, but agreed to try the
computer. That gave him con-
fidence: he quickly abandoned
computer games, and threw
himself into technical
By the second year, Shlomo
was turning up on time,
reading and writing fluently
and giving slide-lectures to his
peers on the traditions of
Syrian Jewry and the story of
his escape. Last month, the
Israel Defense Forces recruit-
ment board accepted him for
its Border Guard unit. He is to
be inducted later this year.
The Interim Station has
been helping an annual 140
teenage drop-outs since 1978.
Two years ago it joined with
the JDC who were seeking to
create a model outreach
system for Israel's marginal
"We'd make a very complete
study of the existing rescue
frameworks in Israel," says
Kaufman. "There are a
number of them, run by dif-
ferent bodies. But we found
that they're uncoordinated,
and each gives only fragments
of help. Nothing provided a full
answer. We wanted to create a
new environment for these
troubled kids, not just fill in
the blanks."
Many of the ideas developed
by JDC's research teams were
shared by the Interim Station
staff and so the partnership
began. "We'd been learning as
we went along," says
Sulimani, "but we were always
under pressure. We work with
very troubled, difficult
youngsters, and we lacked
back-up financial and
academic. Now that the joint is
with us, we not only have their
close support, but thev've also
brought in prestigious institu-
tions. So in addition to their
very great practical contribu-
tion, they've helped us look at
ourselves differently. We've
become a national laboratory
on how to help delinquent
youngsters and potential
criminals back in to the
Coordination with a range of
institutions is a cornerstone of
the JDC approach in building a
national youth rehabilitation
model. The Ministries of
Education and Social Welfare,
the Jerusalem municipality,
ORT's pedagogical center, the
Amal vocational network and
a Tel Aviv university team are
all helping develop the

original system will be retain-
ed, one of JDC's stresses is

once assumed that all this kind
of population was fit for was
basic workman skills," says
Kaufman. "But the future for
which we're preparing these
kids is technological, and we
want to introduce this into the
The installation of five com-
puter terminals, on which
everyone spends 45 minutes
during his day at the Station,
has proven a successful begin-
ning. "We thought the kids
would vandalize the computers
in days," says Sandra Gruber,
one of the Interim Station's 26
part-time teachers. "But in the
six months they've been here,
nothing has been damaged

The computers have been
very effective, as tools for both
teaching and for boosting self-
image. They are to be followed
by courses in electricity and
mechanisms, now being
developed for the Station,
specially designed for
youngsters with a record of
learning failure and limited
cognitive skills.
As of September 1, with the
new courses introduced, the
Interim Station begins a for-
mal 12 experimental months.

Papal Audience
Shouldn't Be Debated
From all indications, Pope John Paul II
was at the beginning of the week absolutely
unrepentant about his audience with
Austria's President Kurt Waldheim in the
Vatican on Thursday. Certainly, by now,
there is no point in debating the issue of the
audience any further.
From our point of view, there was little
purpose in debating the issue at the very
outset. American Jews, Jews elsewhere
throughout the world, and Jews in Israel
have their own .agenda. But so does the
As a political entity, the Vatican pursues
that agenda with the same vigor ana, often,
the same greed as does any other duly-
2onstituted country, whether the country be
the United States, the Soviet Union or even
But the still-scheduled meeting between
American Jewish leaders and Pope John
Paul in Miami on Sept. 11 has for the past
week raised the question of whether Jews
committed to the meeting should in fact par-
ticipate, especially now that the audience
with Kurt Waldheim is a seeming fait
Conserving Jewish Energy
As we see it, the question should not be
raised at all. A special assistant to Sen. Carl
Levin (D., Mich.), former editor of the
American Israel Public Affairs Committee's
publication, "Near East Report," last week
told a symposium at B'nai B'rith's Interna-
tional headquarters in Washington that
American Jews ought to quit feeling the
"obligation" to get into so many of the inter-
nal political debates that are a part of
Israel's realpolitik.
In effect, spiritual, historic, religious and
economic identification with Israel are one
thing. Political participation is quite another
unless those so motivated make aliya
there, and earn that right.
However infuriating to us the Vatican's
decision about President Waldheim may be,
that decision is after all an internal political
matter about which, as Jews, we ought to
learn to be more pragmatic.
Understood in these terms, equating Pope
John Paul's audience with Waldheim with
President Reagan's visit to Bitburg last year
is an absurdity. In the former, we violate the
principle of conservation of Jewish minority
energy applied to an issue over which we
have little control and less right to speak. In
the latter, as American citizens, we were en-
titled, and did, give the President hell.
What all of this means is that the conser-
vation of Jewish minority energy ought now
to focus that energy with an even greater
sharpness than before on the Sept. 11
meeting with the Pope in Miami.
The Greater Truths
If as Jews in that forum we would to raise
the question of the Pope's failure to
recognize the State of Israel's national
sovereignty or even Israel's capital as
Jerusalem, then we can do that as an inter-
nal American political matter within the
context of our relationship to the legislative
and executive branches of our federal
government in Washington. To raise these
questions directly with the Pope in Miami is
wasted time. And worse, wasted
Then what ought we to focus on? Since the
Council of Nicea in 325 CE, the Roman
Catholic Church has built an international
institution which, by its theological nature,
held Jews in contempt, tortured and
massacred them for what its prelates called
"their great refusal," and isolated Jews into
the ghettoes of the living world experience.
Much has happened between then and
now. Especially so in America. The National
Conference of Catholic Bishops' statement
in Washington this week is a case in point in
which U.S. Catholics take a stand, albeit and
understandably a careful one, against the
Pope's decision to meet with President
Waldheim and in support "of the sensitivity
of this and related issues for the Jewish com-
munity in the United States and throughout
the world." They do this as Catholics but
even more so as Americans.
It is uniquely American that Archbishop
John May's statement spoke these and other
words in sympathetic defense of American
Jewish outrage. It is uniquely the quality of
America, in fact, which manifests itself in
the highest offices of the American Catholic
Church these days, that motivated Pope
John Paul's visit to the United States in
September in the first place. His brief visit
with Jews in Miami will be but a bump on a
far larger log.
In reality, the Papal visit will be an at-
tempt to begin a reconciliation of
democratized, middle class and higher
American Catholics with the realities of a
far more conservative Catholicism practiced
elsewhere in the world. Whether the
American Catholic Church moves forward
or backward will be its own choice. We are
betting that it will continue to move
But as long as this American Catholic
spirit prevails, as long as American
Catholics are uniquely and increasingly con-
cerned about what their Jewish fellow-
Americans think and feel, and as long as
they seek dialogue with them on so many
matters, both secular and spiritual, it would
be absurd to turn our backs on that spirit
on that genuine desire for friendship which
has been such a long time in coming. And
which is still hundreds of years ahead of that
spirit in other Catholic Church institutions
elsewhere in the world.
It would be absurd to turn our backs on
that potent arena where, as Winston Chur-
chill taught us, "it is better to jaw-jaw than
war-war." For it is in that arena where our
greatest hope lies for friendly ties with the
Christian world's most powerful church.
We have no right to make the choice of
turning our backs, especially when our
"justification" is rooted in political con-
siderations which must play no role here.
Besides, politics are transitory. The heat of
their moment dissipates into history. And it
is there, in history, in the tale of the spirit of
man, that man's destiny is most often

Linder 'Cause Celebre' Because He Was A Jew
The case of Benjamin
Linder, the first American kill-
ed in the fighting of
Nicaragua's civil war, has
become something of a cause
celebre for the media and,
because he was a Jew. for the
Jewish community. In Jewish
and secular news reports,
Linder has been eulogized as a
He was, we are told, a young
man so idealistic, so commit-
ted to peace and justice, that
he gave up a lucrative career
as an engineer to help the
Nicaraguan people.
IN THEIR rush to judg-
ment, the media and the
Jewish community, prompted
by American friends of
Nicaragua's Sandinista
government, have overlooked
some important facts relating
to the nature of Linder's ser-
vice in Nicaragua.
And, perhaps more impor-
tant, they have overlooked the
nature of the Sandinista
regime itself, a regime that is
not only brutal and repressive,
but is also anti-Semitic and
closely allied with the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion (PLO) and other terrorist
First, let us clarify the situa-
tion surrounding Linder's
Rresence in northern
icaragua. Linder has been
widely described as a bright-
eyed, idealistic civilian whose
misfortune it was to be work-
ing in an area where the anti-
Sandinista resistance, the con-
tras, were active.
NO MENTION is made,
however, of the fact that the
Sandinistas frequently forcibly
relocate civilians away from
combat areas. Indeed, on the
very day that Linder was kill-
ed, they removed thousands of
campesinos, or peasants, away
from areas in the south where
the contras are active.
Why did they not also
remove Linder? The answer is
that the forced-resettlement
program has little to do with
the safety of those whom the
Sandinistas force from their
homes. Rather, it seeks to
deny the contras the support
that the campesinos often

April 28, were in Miami last week
calling for help for Benjamin's cause
which, they said, was deeply commit-
ted to the Sandinista revolution. In
this article. Gordon Zacks suggests
that Linder was anything but the
idealistic man so committed to peace
and justice,' a description which
AP/Wide World Photo
characterizes him in some of the
media. Mr. Zacks is a national co-
chairman of the National Jewish
Coalition, vice chairman of the
American Jewish Committee, and a
past national chairman of the United
Jewish Appeal. In photo above. Ben-
jamin Linder. of Portland. Ore., is
shown wearing a sidearm as he was
taking measurements on a
hydroelectric project in Nicaragua.
His funeral was ironic for Nicaragua's
Jews who know the enmity toward Israel.
Since Linder was apparently
considered "loyal" to the San-
dinista cause, the government
felt free to place his life at risk
by allowing him to continue
working in a war zone.
This action should come as
no surprise. Like many of the
internacionalistas or "San-
dalistas" as these foreign
workers in Nicaragua are call-
ed, Linder was considered an
active participant in the San-
dinista revolution.
AS SUCH, Linder received
a Sandinista army uniform.
Although not wearing it at the
time he was killed, he was in
the company of others who
were. But, more important, he
was carrying a Sandinista-
issue AK-47 sub-machine gun
hardly the kind of equip-
ment likely to convince contra
attackers that Linder's sole
function was that of a civilian
It would seem, then, that
Linder was not quite the inno-
cent bystander to the civil war
that his American friends
claim him to be.
But then, these same friends
have often demonstrated that
their view of Nicaragua is in-
tended to show the Sandinistas
in the best possible light,
whatever the facts may
IN FACT, Linder's ad-
mirers in the United States
such as the innocuously-named
New Jewish Agenda, with
which Linder himself was in-
volved have been active in
support of the Sandinistas and
of other pro-Soviet forces in
Central America and beyond.
These same people also turn a
blind eye to the increasing
repression in Nicaragua, even
though the Sandinistas have
turned ten percent of the coun-
try's population into refugees.
They also ignore the San-
dinistas' support for terrorist
Linder's U.S.
admirers are mosdy
supporters of the
Sandinistas and
other pro-Soviet
groups as varied as Spain's
ETA Basque separatists, the
Irish Republican Army, and
the PLO.
Linder's funeral in
Nicaragua provided a scene of
bitter irony to Jews who are
aware of the Sandinistas' en-
mity towards Israel and the
Jewish people. The Sandinista
president, Daniel Ortega, who
attended the funeral, heard
the participants sing oseh
shalom a Hebrew song call-
ing for peace on Earth.
mourners found it convenient
to forget that, just days earlier
- on April 21, 1987 the
newspaper, El Nuevo Diario,
had published an article about
the black-market entitled:
"Like Jews, They Crucify
With Prices."
Such blatant anti-Semitism
is only the latest example of
the hostility that the San-
dinistas harbor against Jews.
So deep was this hostility, and
so systematic the intimidation,
that the entire Nicaraguan
Jewish community was forced
to flee the country after the
Sandinistas seized power.
Yet it is not surprising that
such persecution should be ig-
nored by Linder's supporters:
for they, particularly the New
Jewish Agenda, sought to
apologize for the harassment
and attacks that Nicaragua's
Jews endured at the hands of
the Sandinista government.
ticipants and their American
sympathizers also chose to ig-
nore renewed reports that
PLO pilots have flown mis-
sions for the Sandinistas.
These reports, raised during
the Iran-contra hearings by
Rep. Jim Courier (R., N.J.),
are only the latest albeit the
most alarming examples of
the 20-year-old "fraternal"
relationship between the San-
dinistas and the PLO.
Linder's death was, indeed,
tragic. But another, less-
publicized tragedy, is the will-
ingness of Americans, Jew and
non-Jew alike, to ignore the
truth about his death, and to
allow themselves to be used to
deflect attention from the
cruelty and ruthlessness of a
brutally repressive regime.

Mystery Deepens Over Fate
Of Jew Kidnapped in Beirut
mystery deepened over the
fate of Elie Srour, one of six
Lebanese Jews kidnapped in
West Beirut on March 30,
1985. A terrorist group, call-
ing itself "The Organization of
the Oppressed of the Earth,"
claimed last Friday that it had
"executed" Srour in
"reprisal" for recent Israeli
air strikes at terrorist targets
in south Lebanon.
But the same organization
announced Srour's "execu-
tion" last December 30, alleg-
ing he was an Israeli "spy"
who "belonged to the Mossad
while claiming to act as presi-
dent of the Lebanese Jewish
THE LATEST "execution"
was announced in a handwrit-
ten note discovered by police
along with a photograph of the
victim. The photograph was
identified as Srour but police
could not say when it was
Srour was seized more than
two years ago outside his elec-
trical appliance shop in west
Beirut. He had headed the
Hevrat Kadisha, the Jewish
burial society in Beirut.
.Ten Lebanese Jews have
been kidnapped during the
Dast two-and-a-half years.
Their captors claimed that
seven were "executed." Only
three bodies were found. No
traces have been found of
Srour or the others.
The Jewish community here
and groups in Israel have been
trying to learn the fate of the
missing men, so far without
success. The announcement of
Srour's "execution" twice in
six months, each time for dif-
ferent reasons, has added to
the puzzle.
Morris Abram, chairman of
the Conference of Presidents
of Major American Jewish
Organizations, said "The con-
tempt for human life by Shiite
terrorists is underscored once
more by the murder of Elie
Coupled with the kidnapping
of the American journalist,
Charles Glass, this latest
atrocity reveals again the
cruelty of the terrorists and
their mindless nihilism."
He added that the war
against terrorism will be won
"when the West exhibits the
will and the strength to crush
those who challenge the rule of
law and the moral values of
civilized society."

and it is beyond comprehen-
sion." He added that during
the course of the two years
between the inspection and the
current accusation, the com-
pany was never informed of
any doubts as to its reliability.
In a press release issued Fri-
day, Donald Butcher, Commis-
sioner of the Department,
stated that despite these
issues about "check marks and
the time to process the allega-
tions, the central fact remains
we believe a violation of
kosher laws occurred."
The Department's Kosher
Advisory Board comprising
members of the Jewish com-
munity including six rabbis, all
of whom are experts in
kashrut decided unanimous-
ly last Thursday (June 18) that
meat found soaking in hot
water before it is deveined and
salted is not kosher.
Miami Beach, national rabbinic
chairman of Hebrew National,
argues that even if the water
was too hot, the meat would
still be kosher because the
meat was soaking in a secon-
dary vessel, not the one in
which the water was heated in.
Stern stated at the press
conference that "kosher law
should be decided by Torah
law, not state law." In fact,
Stern subsequently had Rubin
summoned before a rabbinical
tribunal of the Orthodox Rab-
bis of the United States and
Canada to challenge the
kashrut laws of the State of
New York.
Hebrew National is still con-
sidering filing a libel suit
against the Department. "Any
time a company is accused of
doing something wrong it will
hurt business," Pines said.
"Thank God we have loyal

Galactic Mezuzah Now Earth-
Bound At Jewish Museum
mezuzah that, has orbited the
earth 109 times came to rest
last month at the Jewish
Museum here. Astronaut Dr.
Jeffrey Hoffman, who took the
mezuzah into space two years
ago on the shuttle Discovery,
made the presentation of the
unearthly mezuzah to the
Jewish Museum.
Hoffman, an identifying Jew
and active member of a
synagogue in Houston, Texas,
said he "wanted to make this
special," referring to the tradi-
tion of taking persona) posses-
sions into space to be brought
back as unusual mementos.
Other astronauts have
brought with them flags,
school banners and rings, all
manner of souvenirs that
become touched with a sense
of infinity as they pass through
the earth's stratosphere and
circle the heavens.
"I did something else," said
Hoffman, as he presented the
handsome mezuzah to the
museum. "Being a Jew and
making my first trip into
space," Hoffman said he was
aware of the Jewish history of
traveling, of moving from
place to place, he even joked
about one day establishing a
synagogue in space.
"As we go into space, we
carry our civilization and
culture with us. Being a Jew is
part of that," Hoffman said as
he handed over the mezuzah,
mounted on a framed collage
of his voyage, which includes a
drawing of the Discovery circl-
ing the earth, the American
flag trailing the craft, its red
and white stripes coming
around the globe nearly full
circle. The names of the crew
are embossed onto a NASA in-
signia with the name
"Discovery" running vertical-
ly down the board, the flight
number, 51-D, H-19 and date,
April 1985, at the top.
The cobalt navy blue ceramic
mezuzah, looking somewhat
like a model car, is mounted on
the left side of the tableau.
Around the mezuzah runs a
Hebrew phrase painted in
23-karat gold: "when I con-
sider the heavens, the work of
thy fingers, the moon and the
stars which thou has ordain-
ed." The verse is from the
Book of Prophets, 8:4.
"This is one of the most
unusual objects we've ever
received," said Joan Rosen-
baum, museum director, as she
accepted the gift.

members of the family of
mezuzah craftswoman Marsha
Penzer, who was asked to
create several mezuzahs for
Hoffman by the J. Levine
Company, the well-known
purveyor of Judaica located on
New York's Lower East Side.

Nazi Crimes
Preliminary investigations are
pending in the cases of 81 in-
dividuals suspected of Nazi
atrocities during World War
II, and more than 1,000 cases
have come to court this year or
were turned over to state pro-
secutors, the Federal Office
for the prosecution of Nazi
Criminals in Ludwigsburg
But according to legal ex-
perts, only a small percentage
of the suspects will be tried
and even fewer are likely to be
sentenced. That is because as
time passes it has become
more difficult to prove an in-
dividual's involvement in Nazi
atrocities, the experts said.

Penzer spoke about Hoffman's
extreme thoughtfulness in in-
viting her, her children and
parents to the lift-off. Since
then, he sent her a tape of a
radio interview he gave afer
the voyage which included a
tape he made aboard the
Discovery in which he describ-
ed his personal feelings and
Hoffman was also kind
enough, said Penzer, to per-
sonally call to invite her to the
museum for the presentation
of her mezuzah.
Penzer was contacted by J.
Levine in June 1984, after
Hoffman's rabbi in Houston,
Arnold Stiebel, met people
from the Judaica house while
in New York. Stiebel said that
Hoffman had insisted that the
parchment containing the
"shma" be kosher. He was
also asked by Hoffman to write
a prayer for him to say when
he circled the earth, as no
prayer yet existed to be
recited by an astronaut.
Stiebel, a Reform rabbi at
the Conservative congrega-
tion, Shaar Hashalom, fashion-
ed a short prayer for Hoffman
with the words "Blessed art
thou ..." preceding the last
verses of the "Aleinu" prayer:
"Praised art thou, Lord our
God, ruler of the universe, who
stretches forth the heaven and
lays the foundation of the
earth, whose glory is revealed
in the heavens above and
whose might is manifest in
the loftiest part." The prayer
was recited in Hebrew and
followed by the traditional
"Shehecheyanu," said when
experiencing something for
the first time.
Hoffman told JTA he recited
the prayer when awake at
night afer the other four
astronauts and Sen. Jake Garn
(R., Utah) who accompanied
them had gone to sleep.
Although it was his time to
sleep, as well, he said he just
wanted to silently watch the
magnificent celestial display
taking place all around him.
He was inspired to say the
prayer as he watched the beau-
ty of the earth below him and
thunderstorms swirling
around the skies.

Shamir Says He Raised Ethiopian
Jewish Question on Africa Tour
Premier Yitzhak Shamir said
on his return from West Africa
Sunday that he had raised the
plight of Ethiopian Jews with
the African leaders he met and
urged them "to try to exert
their influence on Ethiopia so
that this problem will be
resolved." There are between
7,000-15,000 Jews remaining
in Ethiopia in dire cir-
cumstances but unable to
Shamir said Israel is ready
to solve the problem "in any
possible way to put an end to
this tragedy." He said of his
hosts, "I found considerable
response among all of
them.... I spoke with heads
of state, I asked them to in-
tervene with the Ethiopian
authorities. Whether and how
far this will help, no one yet
knows. We are trying."
SHAMIR, who visited Togo,
Cameroon and Liberia, said his
trip "generated tremendous
reverberations on the African
continent" and "a number of
African states which had not
yet renewed relations with us
are showing an interest and
are acting in the most suitable
manner to renew relations."
The countries Shamir visited

tions with Israel which they
broke during the 1973 Yom
Kippur War. So have Zaire
and Ivory Coast. But 24 other
Black African states still have
no ties with Israel.
Maariv reported Sunday
that Israel's eagerness to
make progress in negotiations
with African countries to
renew diplomatic ties, possibly
during Shamir's trip, pro-
mpted some of them to "raise
their price." Maariv quoted an
expert on Africa who accom-
panied Shamir as saying that
negotiations with certain
African states "became a mat-
ter of bargaining and, in some
cases, even extortion."
According to Maariv
reporters Tamar Golan and
Rafael Mann, the expert was
referring to Equatorial
Guinea, Gabon and the Central
African Republic. The Presi-
dent of Gabon was particularly
blatant, demanding hefty
monetary credit either directly
from Israel or from
Washington via Israel, in addi-
tion to the standard request
for economic aid from Israel,
they reported.
SHAMIR TOLD reporters
vn his return that he has "no
doubt that we will see further
renewals of diplomatic rela-
tions in the wake of the visit."
He said, "In general, the heads
of the African states are
satisfied with their relations
with Israel. They are grateful
.or everything we are doing
for them. Naturally, they
would like to see more aid, but
they are well aware of Israel's
limitations and I also stressed
these limitations: Israel is not
an economic power."
Shamir said he made clear
that what Israel has to offer is
"experience and proficiency
and expertise in various
areas..." which "we are
ready to share with our friends
in all sincerity and in all
seriousness and with concern
for their interests."

A Day At The Barbie Trial
Mr. Goldmann is director of
the European Office of the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith in Paris.
Long lines in the hot sun
waiting to be admitted to the
courtroom. Most of them are
young people, from the late
teens to the twenties. Many of
them have already visited an
exhibit of photographs of
Holocaust horrors and draw-
ings of children in Terezin.
This is the scene in Lyons, at
the trial of Klaus Barbie,
Gestapo chief in Lyons in
World War II and ever since
known as the "Butcher of
There was fear the trial
would reveal countless stories
of treachery, corruption and
collaboration of French pro-
Nazis and become a review of
France's misdeeds rather than
Barbie's cruelty. There was
concern, too, that the people of
France would not want to look
back on the unhappy and
prideless years of the Nazi
But this is not how it's turn-
ing out. Those queues in the
sun ... the tens of thousands
who have been through the
Holocaust Memorial exhibit
... the stories of horror from
scores of witnesses ... all this
has swept away the fearful,
sometimes cynical pre-trail
The images of Horror re-
main long after they are re-
counted: how Barbie grinned
as he got ready to flog his vic-
tims; how he was the decision
maker in sending 44 Jewish
children in a home near Lyons
to the gas chambers; how his
men robbed the homes of
resistance fighters to pay off
those who had denounced
them; how he forced young
girls to have intercourse with
dogs. In being forced to con-
front the past the French are
coming to realize that the Bar-
bie trial is one of the most im-
portant chapters of their post-
war history.
Young people are discover-
ing the Holocaust; their
teachers, with government en-
couragement, are teaching it;
their parents are learning it
from the media which is repor-
ting the story in agonizing
And what about Maitre
Verges, the Barbie defense
lawyer, who, a few month"
ago, had unsuccessfully
defended Georges Ibrahim Ab-
dallah, the Lebanese terrorist?
Abdallah was sentenced to life
imprisonment. Verges was
"mythologized" by the media,
said Le Monde, as the man who
would make Barbie a mere
bureaucrat who had benefitted
from French collaboration. He
was no worse than General
Bigeard who commanded
French forces in Algeria

tion Front; or Menachem

two of Verges' favorite

caine and Algerie Actualites,
recently analyzed the Barbie
Verges tried to argue with
witness Andre Frossard, a
writer and columnist for the
conservative Le Figaro, who
had spent weeks in the Jewish
barracks at the infamous
Montluc prison in Lyons.
Frossard described what he
had seen and then made his
case: that killing people for
having been born, which is
what the Nazis did with Jews,
was a crime against humanity,
in a class by itself. It could not
be likened to cruelties in war-
time against combatants and
sometimes innocent but mostly
unintended victims. Verges
tried to shake Frossard's case
with quotations from another
French journalist Hubert
Beuve-Mery who, in another
context, had suggested that
France had to guard against
judging others too harshly in
light of her own record. No,
said Frossard, killing children
with no parents in a quiet
country home, just because
they were Jews, was a crime
against humanity. It must not
be diluted or equated with
other kinds of misconduct or
cruelties. And Verges sat
He didn't even rise when
resistance fighter Lucien
Margaine told of the deaths of
more than half of the 2,000
people in a transport from
Lyons to a town near Paris.
And most of this time, Klaus
Barbie sat in his cell, refusing
to face the witnesses. But it
doesn't matter because the na-
tion is learning. How?
Laurent, a student at Jean
Perrin High School has just
finished his report on a day's
attendance at the trial. Now
come the questions from fellow
students: "Will he be con-
victed?," asks a Laotian-born
"Well, one can't tell so
quickly," answers Laurent.
"Is the trial an act of
vengeance against Nazism?"
"No," says Laurent.
"But things have changed
(in 40 years)," persists another
"Not Barbie. He hasn't
changed. You must unders-
tand ... he has no regrets at
all. ."

Our new 6-month CD earns a very competitive 7% annual interest rate.
And it lets you defer payment of taxes on these earnings. That's because
all interest will be paid at maturity in January and taxed in 1988... when
tax rates will be much lower for many people.
That wont make the IRS happy-but it will put a smile on your face.

detailed study of non-Jewish-
born spouses in mixed mar-
riages has confirmed that
Jewish men are much more
likely to marry non-Jewish
women than the reverse and
that women are more likely to
convert than men.
The study, sponsored by the
American Jewish Committee,
was released at a press con-
ference here. It also found that
most non-Jewish-born part-
ners found it easy to integrate
into the Jewish community,
though few had been exposed
to community "outreach" ef-
forts. But they felt that born
Jews lacked understanding for
the converts' particular
THE STUDY was conducted
by Dr. Egon Mayer, professor
of sociology at Brooklyn Col-
lege, and Dr. Amy Avgar,
assistant director of the
AJCommittee's William
Petschek National Jewish
Family Center.
They based their findings on
responses to questionnaires
mailed in 1985 to a nationwide
sample of bom non-Jews mar-
ried to Jews. Of the 309
respondents, 109 had con-
verted to Judaism and 200 had
not. Mayer reported that while
74 percent of the respondents
were women, a higher propor-
tion, 86 percent of the women,
were converts.
The study found that con-
verts tended to have
somewhat more education and
higher income than non-
converts and appeared to have
been more favorably disposed
toward Judaism than non-
converts. Women were more
likely to convert if they con-
sidered religious affiliation im-
portant to begin with and felt
conversion to Judaism would
be important to her husband.
ABOUT two-thirds of the
converts and approximately
one-third of the non-converts
viewed the Jewish family into
which they married as being
"very" or "moderately"
religious. According to Mayer,
"This might imply that many
of them were actively en-
couraged to convert to
Judaism by their Jewish
Conversely, converts were
more likely than non-converts
to perceive their own parents
as being "not at all." religious
or "anti-religious."
More than 70 percent of the
marriages involving a convert
were performed by a rabbi
compared to 21 percent of
those involving a non-convert.
But nearly 84 percent of the
converts and 45 percent of
non-converts said they had ap-
proached a rabbi to officiate at
their marriage.
More than 68 perecent of the
converts, compared to 34.8
percent of non-converts,
described themselves as
"very" or "moderately"
religious. Simlarly, 84 percent
of converts and 44.8 percent of
non-converts thought it was
"important to have a religious
identity"; 73.8 percent of the
converts and 59.5 percent of
non-converts felt a "personal
need to pray"; and 78.7 per-
cent of converts and 62.2 per-
cent of non-converts expressed
belief in supernatural forces.
