Youngster Buried
Victim Dead
Five-year-old Tal Moses died
Sunday at Tel Hashomer
Sheba Hospital and was buried
in Petach Tikva Monday. He
was a victim of burns suffered
when the family car was fire-
bombed on a West Bank road
April H, killing his mother,
Orra Moses, 35.
The child was buried next to
his mother's grave. Hundreds
attended the funeral, including
Minister-Without-Porfolio Yit-
zhak Modai, who demanded
the death penalty for ter-
rorists responsible for such
Justice Done
The Tal family lives in the
West Bank settlement of Alfe
Menashe. Their car was at-
tacked on a Saturday night
while driving to Petach Tikva.
The perpetrators have not
been caught. Tal's father,
Avraham Moses, 37, his two
other children, Adi, 8, and Nir,
13, and a friend, Yosef Ballo,
14, who was traveling with
them, all were burned.
The incident triggered an at-
tack by Jewish settlers on the
nearby Arab town of Kalkilya
the following day.

LYON (JTA) A jury of
five men and four women
found Klaus Barbie guilty on
all counts of crimes against
humanity Friday (July 3).
The 73-year-old former
Gestapo chief, known as "The
Butcher of Lvon." was pro-
mptly sentenced to life im-
prisonment, the maximum
penalty under French law.
The jurors deliberated for
little more than six hours
before reaching their verdict.
As the foreman intoned "guil-
ty" to each of the 22 separate
charges read by presiding
Judge Andre Cerdini, the
packed courtroom burst into
thuderous applause.
IT WAS a release of emo-
tions after hours of crushing
suspense. Despite daily
testimony by eye witnesses
and Holocaust survivors, Jews
and non-Jews since the trial
began on May 11 each poin-
ting to Barbie as the
perpetrator of torture, murder
and mass deportations the
outcome of the trial was far
from certain when the closing
arguments ended late Friday.
There was concern among
prosecution lawyers and plain-
tiffs that the jury might find
mitigating circumstances: Bar-
bie's age, his reported poor
health, the 43 years that have
elapsed since his crimes. Most
of the jurors were born after
World War II and none had
any recollection of the war and
the Nazi occupation.
Moreover, Barbie's lawyer,
Jacques Verges, had the last

Barbie's Lawyer
Attacked Jews As Collaborators
LYON (JTA) Klaus Bar-
bie's lawyer, Jacques Verges,
stunned the court here Thurs-
day with a ferocious attack on
the wartime organization of
French Jews, L'Union
Generale des Israel-ites
(UGIF), which he accused of
collaboration with the Nazis in
rounding up Jews for deporta-
tion to death camps.
Verges claimed the UGIF
acted mainly against foreign
Jews in order to protect the
lives of the old established
French Jewish community and
used money and valuables seiz-
ed from the deportees to
finance its operations. If his
client, the former Gestapo
chief in Lyon, is guilty of
crimes against humanity, so is
the UGIF, Verges thundered.

Klaus Barbie, alias Klaus Altmann, photographed secretly in
bie. On Wednesday (July 1),
Verges opened the defense by
trying to prove that Jews were
not the only victims of racism
and mass murder.
He and two associates, Nabil
Bruaita of Algeria and Jean-
Martin Mdemba, a lawyer
from Congo, attacked Israelis,
Americans, and particularly
the French in North Africa for
atrocities they implied were as
bad or worse than those com-
mitted by Nazis.
The defense team drew
shouts and catcalls from the
visitors' gallery. On Thursday
the court sat in shocked silence
as Verges sought to implicate
the UGIF in one of the prin-
cipal crimes that Barbie was
charged with the arrests on
February 9,1943 of 86 persons
in the Lyon offices of the
UGIF, of whom 82 were
deported and perished in death
HE CLAIMED that the
UGIF supplied the Gestapo
with the names and addresses
of foreign and stateless Jews
who came to it for help. "The
UGIF paid its staff good
salaries, but the money for its
budget was part of the
valuables seized by the Nazis
from arrested and deported
Jews," Verges said. "Is Barbie
more responsible than the
Jewish leadership ... for the
death of their brethren? Could
these arrests have been car-
ried out without the UGIF's
active help?"
Children Honored
Three-hundred-sixty Jewish
children from throughout
Hungary were honored at a re-
cent ceremony at the Anne
Frank Gymnasium here for
passing their Talmud Torah
He accused the organization
of supplying the names and ad-
dresses of its own foreign
employees to the Gestapo.
"They were all dismissed at
the Gestapo's request on
March 18, 1943 and deported
to death the following day," he
Verges claimed that full
documentation of his charges
still exists, carefully stored in
the center of Contemporary
Jewish Documentation in
Paris. But no one has access to
this material, and there was
never any real investigation.
He said the UGIF leaders were
brought before a court of
honor organized by the Council
of Major French Jewish
Organizations (CRIF) "and
given a blame. That's all."
3,092 Jews Left USSR
During First Half of '87
total of 3,092 Jews left the
Soviet Union during the first
six months of 1987, of whom
703 went to Israel, the In-
tergovernmental Committee
for Immigration reported
In June, the number of
departures was 790, of whom
121 proceeded to Israel after
reaching Vienna. In May, 871
left, with 227 going to Israel.
In April, 717 Jews left the

IN ZURICH, speakers at a
seminar organized by the
Swiss Association for Jews in
the USSR said they are con-
vinced that outside pressure
will open the doors for Soviet
Jews wishing to emigrate, as it
did in the 1970's.
According to Claude Frey,
the Swiss National Counselor
and president of the
Parliamentary Association for
Soviet Jews, Soviet wishes for
dialogue with the West should
be used to press Mikhail Gor-
bachev on the Jewish issue.
Baruch Eyal, an expert on
the subject, cited the Soviet
Union's urgent need of
Western technology. This can
be used to persuade Gorbachev
to make concessions on the
human rights issue, and
-specially Jewish emigration,
he said.

word. Brilliant, cunning and
ruthless, he used the two-and-
a-half days before the end of
the trial not to answer the
charges, against his client but
to try to indict the victims.
HE ACCUSED the wartime
organization of French Jews of
collaborating with the Nazis.
He charged that Israel, France
and other colonial powers
were guilty of atrocities as bad
or worse than those of the
On Friday morning and into
the afternoon he attacked the
evidence as unreliable and
charged that key documents
presented by the prosecution
were forgeries. But in the end,
Verges appeared to be carried
away by his own histrionics
and at least a few jurors were
visibly revolted by his attacks
on Barbie's victims. One broke
into tears.
They found Barbie guilty of
ordering the arrest and depor-
tation in April, 1944 of 44
Jewish children at a shelter in
Izieu village, near Lyon, some
as young as five. All perished
at Auschwitz. They found him
guilty of arresting 86 persons
at the office of the Jewish
welfare organization in Lyon,
82 of whom were deported and
never returned. He was guilty
of organizing the last convoy
of deportees from Lyon, more
than 800 Jews and resistance
fighters who were sent to
death camps in August, 1944,
only days before Lyon was
liberated by Allied forces.
in the dock for sentencing. Ar-
rogant and unrepentant, he
had been absent from court
since May 13 when, invoking
the French rule that a defen-
dant needn't be present at his
trial, he decounced the pro-
ceedings as illegal and
declared he would boycott
But the court ordered Barbie
brought form his cell Friday to
hear the verdict. He stood im-
passively, head cocked to
listen to the German transla-
tion. He showed no emotion,
expressed no regrets, offered
no explanations.
When Judge Cerdini asked if
he had anything to say before
sentence was pronouned. Bar-
bie replied, in fluent French:
"I did not round up the
children of Izieu. I did not have
the power to decide on depor-
tations. I fought the
resistance, which I respect,
with toughness. It was war
and the war is now over.
Thank you."
HE SHOOK hands with his
attorney, smiled at his
daughter, Ute Messner, gave a
last cursory glance around the
courtroom, and was taken
from the building by heavily
armed guards.
Verges seemed dazed and
then embittered by the verdict
and sentence. Apparently he
had believed until the end that
his client would receive, if not
acquittal, a reduced sentence.
As the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency correspondent tried to
reach him through the milling
crowd, he turned and shouted
over his shoulder. "You have a

the most vociferous, but cer-
tainly not the only victims of

massacres. I think I have suc-
ceeded in this..."
As he left the court under
police escort, he was besieged
by hundreds outside the
building who shouted "Death
to Verges," "Verges SS" and
''Verges is Barbie
Barbie himself appaently
lost some of his aplomb once
back in his cell at St. Josephs
prison. According to warders,
he shook his head, saying "In-
credible. I fail to understand."
He has been in St. Josephs
prison which he had used as
Gestapo chief to interrogate
and torture his victims since
he was brought to France four
years ago after his expulsion
from Bolivia, where he had liv-
ed nearly 40 years and pro-
spered as a businessman under
the alias Klaus Altmann. In
the courtroom, in the aisles
and in the public gallery, pro-
secuting attorneys con-
gratulated each other and the
plaintiffs. Many spectators
wept. Others cried out,
"Justice at last."
IN FRANCE, prisoners ser-
ving life sentences are usually
paroled after 30 years. Con-
sidering Barbie's age, it is
unlikely he will ever step out-
side the prison precincts, ex-
cept to go to court. He faces a
second trial for the murder of
Jean Moulin and other French
resistance leaders. It is not

Focus, Viewpoints, Opinions, and Commentaries
Anti-Bias Ruling:
How Will It Affect Jewry?
In a decision that seems likely to have inflammatory repercus-
sions far into the future, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that
civil rights laws enacted in 1866 to protect newly-freed black
slaves also extend special protection to any group which can claim
being discriminated against because of its "ethnicity."
In a front-page story in the New York Times, this old law as
amended in 1870, and now codified as Sec. 1981 and 1982 of the
United States Code is described as offering the same protection
as the newer Civil Rights Act of 1964 but with fewer procedural
pitfalls and greater opportunities for seeking punitive damages.
Chiefly it states that "all persons shall have the same rights as
white persons" with regard to making contracts, inheriting and
buying, holding or selling property.
It was under this law, with its "same rights of the conservative,
that in 1984 members of the conservative Shaare Tefila Con-
gregation of Silver Spring, Md. filed a suit against vandals who
had defaced their synagogue with swastikas and anti-Semitic
slogans. The congregation claimed that the vandalism was racial-
ly motivated, since the vandals thought of Jews as a race. But the
district court decided that Jews did not constitute a race and the
civil rights statute did not apply. The congregation then took the
case to the 4th District Court of Appeals, which confirmed the
earlier ruling. The case was then brought to the Supreme Court.
That court's favorable ruling on the case, as well as on a suit
brought by an Iraqi-born U.S. citizen against St. Francis
(Catholic) College on grounds of racial discrimination, will now
allow bias suits for punitive damages on racial grounds even
though, scientifically and factually, no difference in race is
As if this were not ironical enough, the Supreme Court on the
same day agreed to review an appeal by white New York City
police officers, seeking promotion to sergeant, who said they had
been discriminated against as a result of a court-approved settle-
ment of a civil rights suit brought by black and Hispanic can-
didates. An appellate court had dismissed their suit.
Everything in Johnson's History
of the Jews is Half-True or
All Wrong: Prof. Neusner
Nationalistic-minded Jews who have been relishing Paul
Johnson's new book A History of the Jews are undoubtedly suffer-
ing from shock over the good-natured but quite damning review
by the distinguished Brown University professor Jacob Neusner
in the Los Angeles Times. (So far, it has been reprinted in News-
day and is probably headed for many another newspaper as well.)
Johnson, the once-liberal now-conservative historian whose last
book Modern Times and previous histories of the English people
and Christianity all enjoyed both critical acclaim and popularity,
is one of the few non-Jews to tackle Jewish history, and Neusner
says that Johnson "is undone by of all things an error of
It is the "historical theology of blood and peoplehood," Neusner
says, which represents many groups as one and finds a single
linear history where there has been none.
Johnson's account of ancient Israel is "determinedly
unhistorical," the professor finds, beginning not with ar-
cheological or textual evidence but uncritically with the legend of
Abraham, going on to make the error of presenting as a single
"Judaism" in the Hellenistic era a variety of groups that, when
they flourished, despised one another." The account of New
Testament times "ignore 200 years of serious academic scholar-
ship" and the picture of Talmudic times is "worse." Besides these
flaws, Johnson's work gives too much emphasis to some groups
(such as the ancient Israelites) and too little to others.
At the center of the book, Neusner says, is the premise that "a
single group everywhere and at all times exhibited the same in-
dicative traits (and) experienced a unitary and linear history with
a beginning, middle, and so far a happy ending."
No such single group, with fixed traits, ever existed, according
to Neusner. "Since before 586 BC, Jews have lived in various
countries. Each country and its Jews have worked out their own
history, whether in the Land of Israel (Palestine) or in Babylonia,
in Morocco or Spain, in Iraq or Tunisia, in France or the United
States. Each history hangs together on its own terms and tells its
own distinctive story."

Flimsy Papers Have Dramatic Story
Friday, July 17,1987
Volume 17
20 TAMUZ 5747
Number 17
HAIFA A museum exhibit of
artistic papercuts could hardly be
regarded as point of departure for
an example of Soviet attitude
toward its Jews, nor as the source
of a mystery being aired here for
the first time, in the hope that
perhaps some reader may know
the solution.
The story begins with what was
intended to be an uneventful visit
to the Haifa Museum exhibition of
world papercuts, which has been
drawing such unexpected crowds
that its run has been extended to
July. Children in kindergartens
are often taught to fold a piece of
paper twice over, make ap-
propriate snips, and then unfold to
reveal a symmetrical pattern. Im-
aginative and creative artists
have developed the craft since
earliest known times, though the
oldest papercuts still in existence
were discovered at a buriel site in
China dating to the Sixth
For some reason it was seized
upon by Jews as a means of ar-
tistic expression, particularly
among Orthodox Jews, and many
of the exquisite items on exhibi-
tion deal with religious symbols
and motifs. The craft flourished in
eastern Europe, but because of
the flimsiness and fragility of the
products, none are known to have
survived the Holocaust.
The hundreds of selected paper-
cuts in this exhibit are divided
among national pavilions, with ex-
ceptionally beautiful, almost
breath-taking pieces from China,
Switzerland, the Netherlands,
Poland, Mexico among other
The work of Israeli artists, of
course, predominates, and they
are up to the highest of com-
parative international standards.
Yet it was in the Israeli collection
that we came across the name of
Pnina Green, of Leningrad. But
why among the Israelis? Nina
Benzoor, Curator of the Museum
of Music and Ethnology, told us
the story.
Pnina, now 27, studied architec-
ture in her native Russia and prac-
ticed that profession until she was
dismissed from her job because of
her activities in spreading Jewish
culture. Now a resident in Len-
ingrad, she began making paper-
cuts with traditional Jewish
themes, and gave some of her
work to friends. Learning of plans
for the Haifa exhibit, which had
been in preparation for two years,
she called forth the maximum of
her skill and inspiration, and pro-
duced a delicate piece which was
very carefully packed and sent off
to Haifa. It never got beyond the
border, where it was confiscated
by the Soviet authorities, possibly
on the grounds that it was reveal-
ing state secrets.
Yet Pnina Green is represented
in the exhibit after all. Some of
her friends, who had been able to
leave the Soviet Union with their
belongings, brought samples of
her work to Israel with them, and
were happy to loan them for the
present show. Fittingly, they are
in the Israel pavilion. All show in-
tense Jewish inspiration.
There are few American works
on exhibition, but mystery sur-
rounds one that came to Haifa
from Massena, N.Y. It is the
largest creation with a Jewish
theme, and adorns the official ex-
hibit poster.
First, a bit of history. In 1928,
on the eve of Yom Kippur, a small
Christian girl disappeared in
Massena, a city in upper New
Dateline: Haifa
York state, and a policeman sum-
moned the rabbi of Congregation
Adas Israel to explain to the
mayor if it was true that Jews us-
ed the blood of children in their
religious ceremonies. Public feel-
ing against the Jews began to run
high, and the shudder of fear that
went through the tiny Jewish
community may well be imagined.
Fortunately the little girl, having
lost her way, was found the
following day, but the fact that
the traditional blood libel could be
taken seriously on the American
continent left a lasting impression
on the Jews.
Two years later, Adas Israel
celebrated its 10th anniversary
with due thanks for security and
tolerance. One of the gifts
presented to the synagogue on
that occasion was a large
(159x106 cm.) and magnificent
paper cut showing the Ten Com-
mandments, doves of peace and a
statement of faith in God, sur-
rounded by elaborate decorative
motifs, cut out with meticulous,
detailed precision. Coloring is
with pencil, black ink, gouache
and gold and silver hues.
For years the work hung in the
small Adas Israel shule, until now
it has found its way to the
museum, donated by Dr. Samuel
J. Jacobs and Mr. Isaac Rossoff,
A lettered panel across the bot-
tom, apparently executed by the
artist, carries a Hebrew inscrip-
tioin: "To the Adas Israel
synagogue, founded in 1920, gift
of Reb Zalman Schneour, son of
Moshe Halevi, and his wife, Rivka,
daughter of Shmuel, in perpetual
memorial, in the year 1930."
It is not clear if the donor was
himself the artist, or if he commis-
sioned the work to be done.
Where did it come from? What is
the story behind it? What was his
family name? The style is typically
Eastern European, and it is not
known whether it was done in
Europe or in the U.S. At any rate,
the gift of Reb Zalman and his
wife, Rivka, continues in
perpetual memorial, as they no
doubt would have wished, in the
free state of Israel.
As for the exhibition itself, no
visitor to Haifa should miss this
highly unusual show of an un-
conventional creative art. Open to

American Bar
Urged To Commit To Human Rights in Russia
NEW YORK The Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith has called on the
American Bar Association
which last year signed a
"Declaration of Cooperation"
with the Association of Soviet
Lawyers to commit itself to
"vigorously" promote human
rights in the Soviet Union, in-
cluding free emigration by
Soviet Jews.
In a resolution passed at a
closing session of the League's
National Commission meeting
at the Grand Hyatt Hotel last
month, ADL said such a com-
mitment should be adopted by
the ABA at its national
meeting in San Francisco jn
LEADING THE discussion
on the resolution were Ken-
neth J. Bialkin, honorary na-
tional chairman of the League,
and Elliot Bien, a member of
the agency's national Civil
Rights Executive Committee.
As a follow up to the ABA
meeting this summer, the
issue will be reexamined by the
League at its next policy-
making session in the fall. The
resolution was one of four
adopted by the League.
A second offered congratula-
tions on the 20th anniversary
of the reunification of
Jerusalem as Israel's capital
and urged the United States
government to recognize that
city as such. A third called on
the government of Bolivia to
withdraw diplomatic status
from the Palestine Liberation
office in La Paz.
The fourth supported in-
itiatives in the U.S. Congress
which would prohibit denial of
visas under the McCarran-
Walter Act of 1952 on the
War Crimes Files Show Hitler
Ordered Mass Murder, Israelis Say
(JTA) A preliminary study
of the 500 files Israel obtained
from the United Nations War
Crimes Commission archive on
June 5 confirms that the Nazis
embarked on the extermina-
tion of Jews in the early stages
of World War II, with the ac-
tive participation of Adolf
Hitler, the Israel Mission to
the United Nations has
The documents revealed for
the first time that Hitler per-
sonally ordered the mass
murder of 10,000 Jewish
women and children in the
Latvian village of Skirotawa,
near Riga, in 1941, while
Jewish men were sent to slave-
labor camps.
Study of the archives also
revealed that of the 142,000
Czech Jews killed as of July
1943, 51,000 were women and
49,000 were under age 21.
The documents under study
include the files on Hitler, his
deputy Martin Bormann,
Reichsmarshal Hermann Goer-
ing, Propaganda Minister
Josef Goebbels, Reichsfuhrer
Heinrich Himmler, ReinharcT
Heydrich, Auschwitz death
camp doctor Josef Mengele
and Klaus Barbie, the former
Gestapo chief in Lyon current-
ly on trial there for crimes
against humanity.

ing to the American Bar
Association urged the ABA to
take action at its upcoming
meeting in San Francisco to go
beyond the scope of the
"Declaration of Cooperation"
and "vigorously promote
human rights in the Soviet
Union in conformity with the
Helsinki accords, including
free emigration by Soviet Jews
and other citizens who have
been denied that fundamental
human right."
The ABA was asked to pro-
mote human rights "both
publicly and privately, in all
future activities with the
Association of Soviet
The resolution said the
League would have opposed
the ABA-ASL "Declaration of
Cooperation" as an "indefensi-
ble legitimization" of the
Soviet lawyers association
which it described as "the
source of highly objectionable
anti-Semitic literature" and a
group made up of "legal of-
ficials responsible for the op-
pression of Jewish refuseniks
and other Soviet citizens"
were it not for the opportunity
it presents to work for pro-
moting human rights.
IN THE resolution con-
gratulating Israel and calling
on the U.S. to recognize
Jerusalem as Israel's capital,
ADL noted that a "united
Jerusalem has accorded pro-
tection for the holy sites of all
religions and freedom for all
religious groups." The resolu-
tion was presented by Irving
Shapiro, chairman of the
League's Middle Eastern Af-
fairs Committee.
In a resolution presented by
I. Barry Mehler, chairman of
ADL's Latin American Affairs
Committee, the League urged
Bolivian President Victor Paz
Estenssoro to withdraw the
diplomatic status granted to
the PLO and called on the U.S.
government to use its in-
fluence "with the possibility of
reduced U.S. support for
Bolivia" if that government
takes no action.
The use of diplomatic
privileges by the PLO, the
League warned, "poses a
threat to public order, stability
and democratic institutions
not only in Bolivia but in the
entire region." The resolution
also pointed out that "the
PLO, which seeks the destruc-
tion of Israel, is part of an in-
ternational terrorist
ing with the McCarran-Walter

sions of "ideological exclu-

terested in meeting them."

The recess was requested by
Demjanjuk's American at-

said he needed at least 30 days
to prepare the defense.
Levin, who presides over a
three-judge panel hearing the

made against the defendant
and therefore no answer was
"We have to weigh the

Bomb Wounds 15
bomb placed in a restaurant in
the West Bank town of
Kalikilya wounded 15 persons
Saturday. Nine of the victims
were Israeli Jews, and five
were Israeli Arabs, including a
two-year-old boy and a local
Arab resident. None was
seriously hurt.
A curfew was clamped on
the town immediately after the
incident, and security forces
searched the area. The injured
were hospitalized and sent
home after treatment.
According to witnesses, a
man described as an Arab
ordered lunch at the
restaurant and then went to a
kiosk across the street to buy
cigarettes. He left behind a
small parcel concealing a pipe
bomb. It exploded several
minutes later, spraying the
restaurant with shrapnel.
Kalkilya, an Arab town close
to the Israel-West Bank
demarcation line, has been a
popular shopping center for
Israelis, particularly on Satur-
days, when Israeli shops are,
closed. It had been free of in-
cidents until Jewish settlers
rampaged there in May, pro-
testing attacks on Jewish
vehicles in the area.
Mayor Abdel Rahman Abu
Sneiner denounced the bomb-
ing. He said businesses would
have to close were it not for
Israelis who shop and dine at
local restaurants.

Idaho Stands Tough
May Be Most Unyielding State in Hate

new Terrorist Training Act
barring training for violent
crimes or the use of any means
capable of causing property
damage, bodily harm or death
may make Idaho the most
uncompromising state in the
country regarding hate
crimes. Violators of the law,
which took effect July 1, can
receive up to 10 years' im-
prisonment and a $50,000 fine.
Attorney General Jim Jones
called the new act "the
toughest, most comprehensive
legislation of its kind in the
United States, and it will be
enforced. White supremacists
and would-be terrorists who
want to conduct training to
hurt people had best do it out-
side the borders of Idaho."
PAT KOLE, Deputy At-

passage of the act in April was
due to "general realization
throughout the state that some
sort of action was necessary. I
would hope that something
like this would occur in other

attributed to a sharp seasonal

TWO WEEKS later, two

cluding a federal building were

was attempted, for which
Robert Pires, 22, was charged.
Pires, who was known to have
frequented the Aryan Nations
compound, admitted to com-

him in the bombings and
related crimes in exchange for
FBI protection.

Olive Hawley, 27, and her hus-
band Ed, 22, and David Dorr,

counterfeit and robbery to
finance their operations. The
trial for the bombing charges
has yet to take place.
Although most of the hate
crimes were committed in and
around Coeur d'Alene, there
have been some related
isolated incidents in other
parts of the state. Last sum-
mer, crosses were burned in

Reviewed by Marc D. Angel
For generations, Jewish parents
and grandparents told their
children and grandchildren
wonderful stories from the Bible,
the Midrash, Talmud, and many
other traditional sources. To make
a story more interesting, the
storyteller invented elaborations,
created new episodes, wove
his/her ideas into traditional
The storytelling process has
been a constant and basic feature
of the Jewish experience. Indeed,
it has been so natural to us, that
we have seldom stopped to ex-
plore the whole phenomenon of
Jewish folktales from a more ob-
jective perspective.
Howard Schwartz has compiled
a collection of Jewish folktales
from around the world. Reading
through this handsomely produc-
ed book, one encounters magic
and fantasy, miracles and en-
chantment, wisdom and folk-
beliefs. Schwartz has searched
through the vast literature of
Jewish folklore and has drawn ex-
tensively on material contained in
the Israel folktale archives in
order to prepare this book.
Professor Dov Noy, in his
foreword to the book, notes that
there are four main elements
which characterize the uniquely
Jewish aspects of the Jewish
1. The Jewish time. Stories are
often connected with the Jewish
year cycle and life cycie. They
take for granted an awareness of
the significance of Shabbat and
festivals, and the various customs
which are part of Jewish life
2. The Jewish place. Many
stories take place in the
synagogue, or the land of Israel,
or in the Jewish section of town.
3.The Jewish acting
characters. The heroes of Jewish
folktales are often historical
figures, mainly post-Biblical,
though sometimes of Biblical
origin. Many folktales elaborate
on the great deeds of local rabbis
and pious people, The most
popular Jewish folk hero is Elijah
the Prophet, who retains an ongo-
ing relationship with the Jewish
people and is especially available
to help righteous people in
4. The Jewish message. A
singular characteristic of Jewish
folktales is the introduction of a
moral message. The goal is not
merely to entertain, but also to in-
struct. Professor Noy has stated:
"Whereas the universal folktale
appeals to the present
psychological state of the listener,
delighting him with a pat resolu-
tion in a formulistic happy ending,
the Jewish folktale is future-
oriented, urging the listener to
adopt an ideal or goal as yet
unrealized, to improve his ways
and change his attitudes."
The stories in this volume will
be read differently by different
people. Some of the stories are, in
fact, formulistic and without any
powerful punch to them. Many of
the stories involve far-fetched
miracles; they are quaint tales but
not particularly inspiring.
On the other hand, there are
stories which leave a pleasant im-
pact, conveying their moral
message. "The Staff of Elijah"
tells of an old righteous man who
had once been wealthy and very
charitable. In old age, though, he
found himself impoverished. The
old man gave hospitality to a
stranger who turned out to be
' Elijah the Prophet. Elijah gave
him a staff, ir rmim? him
enigmatical) that he would
some day have to return it to its
proper place. The next day, the
old man took the staff with him
when he went to the market, and
the staff became stuck in a crack
between stones. When he bent
down to pull it out he discovered
several silver pieces. Aside from
bringing him money, the staff
gave him strength and helped him
defend his fellow Jews.
The old man decided to fulfill his
lifelong wish of going to the Holy
Land. His goal was to travel to the
Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. To his
surprise, he ended up in a wagon
bound for Safed. When the wagon
was crossing Mount Carmel, a
wheel broke and the men stopped
to repair it.
The old man took a little walk on
the mountain with his staff and
spotted a tree from wich a branch
had been cut off. Coming closer,
he noticed that the wood of the
tree was similar to that of his
staff. He raised the staff against
the place where the branch had
been cut off, and suddenly the
staff became fused to the tree; it
began to bud and bear leaves. The
man then realized the meaning of
Elijah's words that the staff
would one day have to be returned
to its proper place.
The man continued his journey
to Jerusalem and as he was pray-
ing by the Wailing Wall, a gust of
wind carried a leaf to his feet. The
man picked it up and somehow
knew that this leaf had come from
the tree from wich the staff had
been taken. He kept it, and it re-
mained green all the years of his
lfe. And he lived many happy
years in the Holy Land.
"The Reincarnation of a Tzad-
dik" tells of a baker's 15-year-old
daughter, who opened the doer of
the oven while baking loaves of
bread. A small round object rolled
out, fell into her hand, and then
jumped into her mouth and was
swallowed. Nine months later, the
girl gave brith to a baby boy.
When only a few days old, the
baby began speaking with the
words of a grown man. Everyone
realized that this child was as
strange as his origin.
When the child was one year
old, he asked his grandfather
the baker to take him to the
synagogue; but he made the baker
promise not to question anything
he did. On the way to the
synagogue, the two stopped to
rest in the house of a very kind
elderly couple. Before they left,
the little boy took a beautiful
silver candelabra which was the
couple's only valuable possession
and he threw it out of the open
window into the sea. The grand-
father remained silent.
Later, they came across some
wicked men who were busy
building a house. The boy raised
his arms and the building sudden-
ly was completed. While returning
from the synagogue the baker and
the boy were given hospitality by
a kind widow who lived alone with
her only son. That night, the in-
fant boy took a sharp knife from
the kitchen and killed the widow's
cow, her only possession in the
The baker was so incensed that
he demanded an explanation from
the boy for his terrible behavior.
The boy told him that he was the
reincarnation of the soul of a
Tzaddik who had not finished all
his destined deeds in the world, so
he had come back to complete
He then revealed that the couple
whose candelabra he had thrown
into the sea had been falsely ac-
cused of havng stolen it. At that
very moment, the King's guards
were on their way to arrest them.
By throwing it into the sea, he had
actualy saved the couple great
tragedy. As for the wicked
builders, there was a great
treasure buried in the place where
they were putting up the building.
By making the building go up im-
mediately, he deprived the men of
digging the foundation and fin-
dYug the treasure.

Arabs See The
Israeli Sights
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel has no peace treaty with
Jordan and is technically in a state of war with other Arab
countries. But this does not prevent nationals of those
countries from visiting Israel and enjoying the amenities
offered tourists from anywhere in the world, Yediot
Achronot reported Tuesday.
REMARKING on the new phenomenon of informal
relations with Jordan, the paper reported that children of
Jordanians who visit relatives in the West Bank go to Tel
Aviv, where they shop on Dizengoff Street and swim at the
Senior Jordanian officials who come to the ad-
ministered territories, in connection with King Houssein's
five-year plan to improve Palestinian living conditions,
often visit Tel Aviv and other parts of Israel. In fact, accor-
ding to Yediot Achronot, tens of thousands of visitors from
other Arab countries combine visits to relatives in the ter-
ritories with sightseeing and shopping in Israel.

Health/Medical Update ...
Florida is the thunderstorm and
lightening capital of the United
States, far and ahead of the front-
runner when it comes to injuries
and death from lightning. From
1952 to 1980, 227 people died
from injuries in the state, the na-
tion's worst mortality record from
lightning bolts.
Dr. Eugene J. Strasser, plastic
surgeon and general surgeon in
practice with Drs. Bose Yalaman-
chi and Steven H. Schuster in Cor-
al Springs, believes South Flori-
dians should respect the forces of
nature even more than they
already do. He has witnessed
enough lightning injuries and
resultant complex traumas to pa-
tients to urge caution throughout
the summer, even on apparently
clear weather days.
"Lightning occurs about two-
thirds of the time with South
Florida's almost daily-afternoon
summer storms," Dr. Strasser
said. "Lightning's awesome
power has been measured at
millions of votes from 5,000 to as
high as 200,000 amps for one
discharge. The temperature of the
bolt is between 15,000 to 60,000
degrees Fahrenheit, and the
discharge may last anywhere bet-
ween 1/1,000 to 1/10 of a second.
Most injuries to people are from
cloud-to-ground lightning."
One person out of three hit is
killed by the lightning trauma.
The degree of injury depends on
the current flow, duration, the ac-
tual resistance of the person's
skin and even that person's
physical activity when he or she
was struck.
In one case noted by Dr.
Strasser, a 21-year-old man was
struck by lightning while riding
his motorcycle. The motorcyclist
did from lightning injury
(although victims can be
resuscitated even after they ap-
pear to have no vital signs for
many minutes). However, the
motorcyclist also suffered head in
juries and other multiple severe
injuries after crashing by the
roadside. Lightning causes such
sudden, severe muscle contrac-
tions from its tremendous current
that the victim is often thrown
several yards. The combination
for the motorcyclist traveling at
high speed proved fatal.
"Some people may appear to be
dead, but can be revived. In one
case, a 10-year-old boy was
resuscitated after approximately
13 minutes with no vital signs,"
Dr. Strasser said. "He eventually
recovered with the only apparent
residual of the trauma, a nasal,
somewhat slurred speech.
Neurologic effects resulting from
lightning injuries are numerous
and unpredictable. Some unjuries
can develop years later, such as
the patient who developed an
ulcer in a 35-year-old lightning
The tremendous force of the
lightning can cause cataracts, cor-
neal ulcers, retinal detachment or
optic nerve injury to the eye. Ears
can be injured by the crash of
thunder, and proximity of these
sound waves. The shock waves
most commpnly cause tympanic
membrane rupture.
"Lightning injuries are certain-
ly complex, but one thing I would
like to stress is that prompt treat-
ment can save a person even if
they appear to have been killed,"
Dr. Strasser said. "Car-
diopulmonary resuscitation and
other appropriate measures
should be undertaken immediate-
ly to try to revive the person. That
person, if saved, will certainly
have other traumas, perhaps
retrograde amnesia, hypertension
or pulmonary problems, but these
usually resolve. The patient could
later develop cardiac arrhythmias,
neurologic problems or other pro-
blems because these are com-
plicated multi-system injuries, so
follow-up is essential."
Dr. Strasser believes an ounce
of prevention is worth a pound of
cure. He suggests residents of the
"thunderstorm and lightning
capital of the U.S." follow some of
these precautions: Immediately
move into a large building during
a lightning storm and certainly
avoid standing in an open field or
on a hilltop. Don't stand under a
natural lightning rod such as a
tall, isolated tree; move away
from metal objects such as farm
equipment, bicyles, golf carts and
noted that demographic surveys
have revealed a mobility within
the North American Jewish Com-
munity that point to the creation
and existence of a national Jewish
community. "No longer are we
concentrated in urban enclaves
with built-in support systems,"
they said in a joint statement.
Jews live in communities of every
size and description and in areas
that are no longer identifiable as
"Jewish neighborhoods."
This fact, along with the one
which shows that demographic
surveys reveal that Jewish Family
Service agencies are among the
least known of the Jewish Com-
munal Service Agencies, were im-
portant factors in the creation of
the ESN. "Because JFS agencies
are so adept at serving the elder-
ly, the ESN was created to make
these agencies more accessible to
those in need of social services,"
stated Mr. Nebenzahl.
The Elder Support Network is
modeled after programs run by
local Jewish Family Service Agen-
cies around the country, par-
ticularly in Florida. There are now
almost 70 partner agencies enroll-
ed in communities of every size
from coast-to-coast, and including
several in Canada. David
Saltman, Executive Director of
the Miami Jewish Family Service
and chairperson of the ESN
Technical Advisory Committee,
said that ESN partners have
agreed to be governed by a
Policies and Procedures Manual
that sets minimum standards of
practice. "All partners are
already providing the services
established as minimum criteria,"
said Mr. Saltman. The ESN will
hopefully raise the visibility of
these agencies and allow people to
make use of the valuable services
they can perform.
Since most people call after a
problem with a parent has arisen,
explained Mr. Saltman, ESN part-
ners are also committed to getting
back to any one making an inquiry
in the shortest possible time. "It's
been our experience in Miami that
most people call after a problem
has surfaced but before it becomes
an emergency," explained Mr.
Saltman. He added that callers do
appreciate the prompt response
afforded by the ESN.
The Elder Support Network can
be contacted by dialing a toll free
number, 1-800-634-7654. Callers
will be asked to give the Network
operators some information about
the elder relative they are referr-
ing and about themselves. This
will include a brief description of
what they consider the problem to
be as well as the home phone
number and address of the person
they are referring.
The Network operator will then
notify the Partner agency in the
parent's community which, in
turn, will conduct the person who
made the initial referral. The
worker from the Jewish Family
Service agency will ask for more
details about the case and, in turn,
will initiate contact with the elder
relative. An evaluation of the case
will be made and a treatment plan
will be suggested where ap-
propriate. "Service can be provid-
ed only if the elder person agrees
to accept it," cautions Mr.
There are usually fees attached
to the provision of service. Mr.
Saltman urged that anyone about
to engage in a contract with a
Jewish Family Service agency for
service to the elderly should
discuss these fees before any ser-
vice is given. Fees do vary from ci-
ty to city and all Partner agencies
have agreed to provide a sliding
scale of fees based on ability to
pay. Further information about
the Elder Support Network may
be obtained by calling Jewish
Family Service of Broward Coun-
ty at 749-1505 or 966-0956 or
ESN at 1-800-634-7654. Referrals
can also be made through one of
these two resources.
The Elder Support Network is a
service of the Association of
Jewish Family and Children's
Agencies. AJFCA is a national
membership organization of
Jewish Family Service agencies
throughout North America. The
Association offers its members
consultation, personnel placement
services, conference and program-
ming services, and other suppor-
tive measures designed to help
local Jewish Family Service agen-
cies do their job in the most effi-
cient and effective way possible.

The retirement years are
sometimes referred to as the
"Golden Years." In some sense
thiB is true. It is a "golden" time
to do things that we never had
time for during our working
years: traveling, learning new
skills or expanding old ones, spen-
ding time with loved ones, getting
to know new members of the fami-
ly all those wonderful, exciting
challenges that can't always be
taken on when people have obliga-
tions to family and work.
But like every other time of life,
the "golden years" are not all
golden, and aging people face
some of the most stressful ex-
periences that a human being will
ever undergo in our society.
To begin with, we live in a socie-
ty that has taught us all our lives
to work and be productive. From
that time on, we are expected to
produce good grades in school or
learn a profession and then go to
work and support a family, or to
marry and care for a family. By
the time we reach retirement, we
have been stripped of roles that
we have spent 60 years either
preparing for or functioning in.
It is a difficult transition and not
at all surprising that many senior
citizens have a hard time shifting
the focus of their lives from the
well-ordered tempo of the worka-
day world of profession and child-
rearing to the limbo of being on
vacation all the time.
Vacation all the time can be a lot
harder to enjoy than we ever

issues include: marital counseling,
individual counseling for a variety
of problems one may face as they
