Nudel:
?, 'I Am No Longer Refusenik'
This remarkable photograph, taken from the
United Jewish Appeal Archives, shows white-
helmeted British soldiers on board the ship
Exodus as it was refused admission to the port
of Haifa September 28, 1H7. A re-enactment
of the event was held in Israel on the UOth an-
At Sukkot
niversary of the denial of landing rights in
then-Palestine to U.515 Holocaust survivors.
Three Jews were killed and 28 injured before
the British succeeded in returning the refugees
from Europe's DP (Displaced Person) camps
to occupied Germany. See Story, Page 7.
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) "I
am not a refusenik anymore,"
a joyous Ida Nudel told
reporters in a telephone inter-
view from Moscow Monday.
But she does not believe her
exit visa signals a new policy
of the Kremlin toward Soviet
Jews.
Nudel, 56, was told by the
Soviet authorities only last
Friday that she will be allowed
to leave the USSR to join her
sister, Elena Fridman, in
Israel, whom she has not seen
for 16 years. Her name
reportedly headed the list of
former Prisoners of Cons-
cience which Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres gave Soviet
Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze when they met
in New York Sept. 23.
But she feels the Soviets are
using her and other prominent
refuseniks recently granted
exit visas to achieve certain
diplomatic goals and improve
their image. "In ancient times,
the Pharaohs used to please
the chiefs of neighboring coun-
tries with very exotic things,"
Nudel said. "I feel that I am a
white crocodile. I was used to
please Mr. Reagan and Mr.
Shultz before a meeting of the
superpowers."
Observers here tended to
agree. They suggested Nudel
was granted her visa on the
eve of Yom Kippur because of
the added public relations im-
pact. Nudel, an engineer-
economist, was in Moscow for
a hearing for permission to
resume residence there after
being forced for five years to
live in the Moldavian city of
Bendery. Before that she lived
in exile in Siberia from
1978-82.
But instead of getting her
Moscow residency permit, she
was summoned by Rudolf
Kutznetsov, head of Moscow
OVIR (emigration bureau) and
told to return to Bendery to
get her papers in order
because she had permission to
emigrate.
Nudel told the Israeli
reporters that it will take
several weeks before she
leaves for Israel, due mainly to
the volume of paper work. "I
will not remain here even one
extra moment," she said. "I
am so excited I want to cry. I
am looking forward to come
home, to Israel."
She added, "I am beginning
to accept the fact that I am not
a refusenik any more. Most of
all, I want to be a normal
Israeli citizen, and take my
place in Israeli society. And I
will, of course, work for the
release of all my friends who I
will be leaving behind."
Meanwhile, another former
Prisoner of Conscience, Yosef
Bernstein, 50, of Kiev, is ex-
pected to arrive in Israel with
his wife next Sunday. Berns-
tein, an industrial engineer,
had been seeking an exit visa
since June 1975. In 1984 he
was sentenced to four years'
imprisonment for "resisting
police." He was released a
year early after a review of his
case.

Living With Tensions
Among the most intriguing
and impressive aspects of
Jewish wisdom is its attempt
to bridge contradictions and
live with a tension of op-
posites. Consider, as an exam-
ple, that precisely during the
fasting on Yom Kippur is when
we read the passage from
Isaiah challenging the notion
of such a ritual. While fasting,
we remind ourselves that
fasting is not enough.
The same rhythm is found in
the festival of Sukkot.
Kohelet, with its challenging,
skeptical spirit and disdain for
possessions, is the megillah
assigned for our harvest, our
thanksgiving festival. At a
holiday so disposed to a sense
of joy, our sages see the need
for putting things in
perspective.
That theme is the subject of
a little Hasidic vignette. It tells
of a man who always carried a
scrap of paper in each pocket.
On one was written, "For my
sake was the world created.'
On the other, "I am nothing
but dust and ashes." If he felt
depressed, he would look at
the passage "For my
sake ...," and it would raise
his spirits. If he was feeling
vain, or foolish or arrogant, he
would read "I am nothing but
dust and ashes." And, so the
story suggests, he would
regain a proper sense of
balance.
Sukkot, too, suggests that
we must feel both "yes" and

New Debate On Role Of
Pope Pius XII During Holocaust
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) A
simple statement made in
Miami by Pope John Paul II at
the meeting with Jewish
leaders, in which the Pontiff
said he believed that Pope Pius
XII would be vindicated by
history, has elicited a skeptical
response from Holocaust
historians and some Jewish
figures present at the meeting.
Pope Pius XII has been ac-
cused, in the years since the
end of World War II, of a
singular Holocaust sin: silence.
In effect, John Paul's asser-
tion reopens an old can of
worms, one which was given
tremendous attention beginn-
ing in 1963 with the produc-
tion of the play "the Deputy"
by German playwright Rolf
Hochbuth, in which Pius XII
was assailed for having
refrained from speaking out
publicly on behalf of those who
were persecuted, particularly
the Jews.
Critics of the wartime Pon-
tiff base their judgment on the
fact that Pius XII did not

speak out on behalf of the Jews
specifically. The telling docu-
ment many refer to is the ad-
dress the Pope gave at
Christmas 1942. The criticism
leveled at him is that he never
once in the very long state-
ment mentioned the word
"Jews."
The Christmas plea given by
the pope was, rather, a sweep-
ing condemnation of the perils
of a "Godless society" and the
threat to private capital under
Marxism. In broad but
generalized terms he called for
opposition to the "excessive
herding of men into lifeless
things' and urged mankind to
"uphold respect for the prac-
tical realization of the ... fun-
damental personal rights .. to
maintain and develop one's
corporeal, intellectual and
moral life and especially the
right to religious formation."
In attempting to explain that
Pontiff's reasoning during
that era, many have pointed
the finger at his tremendous
loathing of Communism. It has
also been variously noted that
it was simply not in the style of
Pius XII to be specific about
any people's suffering, nor by
whom.
Pius's record is a somewhat
mixed bag, in that it is known
and documented that he allow-
ed sanctuary to be given to the
Jews of Rome; that he in-
tervened, through the papal
nuncio in Berlin, for the Jews
in northern Italy; that he
telegrammed a personal ap-
peal to Hungarian Regent Ad-
miral Miklos Horthy.
British historian Martin
Gilbert notes in "The
Holocaust" (Holt, Rinehart
and Winston, NY, 1985) that
in 1943, the Pope "helped the
Jewish community in Rome
that September, offering
whatever amount of gold
might be needed towards the
fifty kilogrammes of gold
demanded by the Nazis, which
the community could not raise
in full on its own."
However, historians Nora
Levin and Raul Hilberg have
softened the impact of that of-
fer by explaining that it was a
loan requested by the then
bankrupt Jewish community,
which, said Hilberg, was
ultimately not needed because
the Jews mustered the sum
themselves. On September 20,
1942, Pope Pius XII gave an
audience to U.S. envoy Myron
Taylor, of which it was
speculated that the topic
discussed was the persecution
of the Jews. Although the
specific agenda of that au-
dience was not diclosed,
Taylor was quoted as saying
that the Pontiff had said that
"Church and State must aid in
the efforts of both the religious
and civil communities."
David Wyman, author of
"The Abandonment of the
Jews" (Pantheon Books, NY,
1985), feels that Pius's good
deeds are, however over-
shadowed by his long lapses,
and his pronounced overall
silence.
He told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency: "From
what I know now, the record
of Pius XII is a very poor one."
Wyman cited the telegram
to Horthy which "was not sent
until late June. But the Jews
were deported May 15. Why
did he wait for a period of
more than a month? Before the
pope had moved, 200,000 Jews
had been deported.
"It's true that Pius XII
helped some Jews, but his
record is 95 percent empty. On
November 24, 1942, the State
Department confirmed that
the Jews were being exter-
minated. The news came to the
world. And if the Pope is
speaking a month later (the
Christmas address), then we
have to ask why? What took
him so long?"
Levin, author of "The
Holocaust. The Destruction of
Eastern Jewry, 1933-45"
(Schocken, NY, 1973) cited
Pius's great admiration for
German culture. She also

UJA Prime Minister's Mission Raises $24.9 Million
Following a recent non-stop
charter flight from New York to
Israel aboard the Concorde, and
special exciting programming,
American Jewish leaders from 34
U.S. communities pledged $24.9
million including $2 million in
"new money" for Project
Renewal on the United Jewish Ap-
peal Prime Minister's Mission.
The mission included rides on
command cars, missile boats,
helicopters and Hercules air
transports; briefings by Israel's
highest officials; and poignant
meaningful visits with but a few of
the tens of thousands of Israelis
who benefit from the
UJA/Federation Campaign. "The
funds raised for the Regular
UJA/Federation Campaign is the
largest amount ever for a UJA
Prime Minister's Mission," said
UJA National chairman Martin F.
Stein. "This is an extraordinary
accomplishment." Stein and UJA
Major Gifts chairman Marvin
Lender of New Haven, the Mis-
sion Co-Chairmen, also presented
special lapel pins to each partici-
pant as members of a new UJA
group: the Prime Minister's Coun-
cil. This group of distinguished
Jewish leaders will work together
to strengthen UJA/Federation
Campaigns and play a key role in
Jewish affairs.
Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir
briefed the participants on their
first evening in Jerusalem and
complimented them for their fine
work and dedication. He urged
them to come often and take part
in helping to build Israel. He also
discussed his recent trip to
Romania and the future of the
Jewish people in lands of distress.
In a pre-caucus talk at the
Knesset, Minister of Foreign Af-
fairs Shimon Peres stressed the
importance of research and
development in looking ahead for
new technology. He also em-
phasized placing the peace issues
at the top of the agenda and the
importance of keeping a
pluralistic Jewish people together.
Other highlights of the action-
packed three-day intensive mis-
U.S. Senator Daniel Patrick
Moynihan (D-NY) and his wife,
Elizabeth, will receive the
American ORT Federation
Community Achievement
Award at a dinner in their
honor Oct. 20 at the Sheraton
Centre in New York City.
Fund8 raised at the
testimonial dinner in their
honor will establish the Sen.
and Mrs. Daniel Patrick
Moynihan ORT Scholarship
Fund to assist students at ORT
vocational and technical train-
ing schools in Israel and in S3
other countries worldwide.
sion included analyses of recent
events by Defense Minister Yit-
zhak Rabin. Mayor Teddy Kollek
welcomed the group as they arriv-
ed in Jerusalem. All speakers em-
phasized Israel's achievements in
the 40 years of its independence.
UJA president Stanley B.
Horowitz, Jewish Agency
Director-General Shlomo Gazit
and JDC Executive Vice Prsident
Michael Schneider briefed the
group. Aryeh Dulzin, Chairman of
the Jewish Agency Executive,
gave a special talk on key
elements of Jewish Agency
programs.
Obtaining a firsthand look at
how their support of Jewish Agen-
cy and American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee programs
have contributed to the country's
progress, the group visited
Shikma, an institution for the han-
dicapped, whose orchestra and
choir performed. They also visited
Hofim, a Youth Aliyah village for
Ethiopian youngsters and chatted
with the pupils during lunch.
UJA National Project Renewal
chairman Jane Sherman of
Detroit reviewed the progress of
Project Renewal, the comprehen-
sive program of diaspora Jewish
communities to help rehabilitate
Israel's depressed neighborhoods.
Mayor Shlomo Lahat of Tel Aviv
and Maxim Levy of Lod welcomed
the group to their respective cities
and described accomplishments
under Renewal in their cities.
During the fund-raising caucus
many Mission members made ex-
tra Renewal pledges in honor of
Jane Sherman for her outstanding
work.
At a special memorial service on
Mount Herzl, Member of the
Knesset Abba Eban reviewed
Jewish history and paid tribute to
the young men and women who
made the supreme sacrifice in
defense of the Jewish State.
National chairman Martin F.
Stein summed up the three days
when he said, "This is the single
most blessed generation in 5,000
years. We share and we care and
we are continuing the process we
began in 1939 when the UJA was
founded."

Alaskan Exploration Issue
Impacts On Oil Dependency
By MORRIS J. AMITAY
A major decision that the
Congress is expected to face
this fall will undoubtedly have
important ramifications for
U.S. foreign policy in the Mid-
dle East and Israel's security
more than 10 years from now.
And unless our elected
representatives are sufficient-
ly farsighted, we could pay
dearly for a wrong decision, or
inaction. The issue Congress
must decide is whether to open
up a comparatively tiny por-
tion (one percent of the total
acreage) of the Arctic National
Wildlife Refuge (ANWR -
usually referred to as "An-
war," as in Sadat) for oil ex-
ploration or designate it as
an inviolate wilderness area,
or by doing nothing prevent
development.
For friends of Israel who
recognize the danger of grow-
ing U.S. dependence on
foreign source, and particular-
ly Middle East oil, there should
be little hesitation in suppor-
ting legislation permitting
exploration.
With the current flow of
close to two million barrels of
oil per day from the adjacent
Prudhoe Bay field declining
steadily and due to run out by
the end of this century, poten-
tial production from the new
finds in ANWR would be the
only substitute from a
domestic U.S. source.
Already, the trend of im-
ports is alarming, with almost
half of U.S. oil now being im-
ported. And while increased
conservation measures and
more attention to the develop-
ment of alternative energy
sources must also be sup-
ported, the most urgent
energy issue to come before
the Congress in the near
future will be the issue of drill-
ing for oil in ANWR.
Debate on Capitol Hill will be
influenced heavily by the conti-
nuing turmoil in the Persial
Gulf, and rightly so. The large
flotilla of American warships
now deployed there is a telling
sign of how energy
dependence dictates foreign
policy.
In this connection the latest
Joint Program Plan put out as
guidance to 11 national and
113 community Jewish agen-
cies contains a very important
warning citing the "inexorable
increase in the amount of oil
being imported to the U.S."
The plan also states that "The
ability of our government to
formulate and conduct foreign
policy undominated by energy
considerations, and without
fear of economic reprisal, must
be a clear, conscious and fun-
damental objective."
Opposition to exploration of
this region comes from en-
vironmental groups whose ma-
jor fear is that the caribou
(local reindeer) herds may be
adversely affected. Ex-
perience with Prudhoe Bay
(only 60 miles to the west)
however, shows that these
herds have tripled since
development there. The part
of the arctic coast in question
is so bleak and remote that
there is hardly any other place
in the entire country where
drilling would have less
adverse impact on both
humans and wildlife. In fact,
the few hundred hardy souls
living in this region support
development enthusiastically.
Already, the New York
Times, the Wall Street Jour-
nal, and the Washington Post
have come down on the side of
development in three tightly-
reasoned editorials. A
respected columnist recently
put it this way: "(if) one has to
choose between caribou and
country, it is hard to see how
there is a choice."
It will not be easy to allay all
the fears of opponents of drill-
ing who fear disturbance of
what they call "a unique
ecosystem." They have
mobilized massive letter-
writing campaigns to members
of Congress, many of whom
are loathe to antagonize this
vocal constituency. In the end,
however, common sense, the
Prudhoe Bay experience, and
the efficacy of environmental
safeguards should win the day.
What remains a difficult
task is to get more people to
realize the inextricable link
between our national security
and greater energy in-
dependence, and to get the
leadership in the American
Jewish community to
acknowledge how this could
directly impact on future
U.S.-Israel relations. If Con-
gress acts responsibly on AN-
WR, we should all be able to
breathe a little easier in the
face of any attempts at oil
blackmail a decade from now.

Committee (AIPAC).
Rightwing Le Pen Cancels Brit Trip
By MAURICE SAMUELSON
LONDON (JTA) Jean-
Marie Le Pen, leader of
France's far rightwing Na-
tional Front Party, has cancel-
ed his planned visit to Britain
as anger still boiled over his
remarks on a recent radio in-
terview that the Holocaust
was a mere footnote to the
history of World War II.
Last week, an embarrassed
Conservative Party made clear
that Le Pen would not be
welcome. He was invited by
Sir Alfred Sherman, a promi-
nent Conservative and former
political advisor to Prime
Minister Margaret Thatcher to
address a fringe meeting at
the party's annual conference
in Blackpool next month. Nor-
man Tabbit, national chairman
of the Conservative Party, said
Le Pen would be given no
facilities at the conference and
urged party members to
boycott any fringe meetings
where he might speak.
Sherman, a one-time Com-
munist turned rightwing
ideologue and himself Jewish,
said he invited Le Pen before
the latter's public denigration
of the Holocaust. Although Le
Pen did not retract his
remarks, Sherman accepted
his subsequent explanation
that he simply wanted to view
the Holocaust in the perspec-
tive of all the mass deaths that
occurred in the war years.
Le Pen, a member of the
French Chamber of Deputies,
is being sued in civil court by
the International League
Against Anti-Semitism
(LICRA) for inciting racial
hatred.

make aliyah to Israel can live quite well, according to
Joseph S. Wernick, National Director of the Association of
Americans and Canadians in Israel.
An average monthly budget has been prepared by one of
the senior members of the AACI for September 1986, dur-
ing a period of relative price and exchange rate stability.
"This gentleman has a background in administration and
the figures he presented are very realistic," stated Mr.
Wernick. Not included is the expense of visits to the U.S. or
bringing family members to Israel for a visit.
Rental expense has a very wide range and goes from
$150 per month in a one-bedroom apartment in an outlay-
ing area to $750 or more per month for three bedrooms in
the best areas. Many new and used apartments are
available in all areas. Last year was a good time for buyers,
but prices may have risen this year as a result of no new
supply and a hoped-for increase in demand. Purchase cost
varies widely and is based on location, size, condition, etc.
It could range from $20,000 for a one-bedroom apartment
to $100,000 for three bedrooms, with lots of opportunities
in between.
Food for two people including cleaning supplies, soaps,
etc. is estimated at $225-275. Assuming rental of a 3-4
room apartment in a building with an elevator, central heat
and central hot water, monthly maintenance fee paid to the
House Committee would be $50-75. Standard utilities are
electricity $25, water $10, gas $15, and telephone $30. This
last estimate does not include calls outside of Israel. It is
recommended that if family would call Israel instead, 1/3 of
the cost could be saved.
Moving to Israel does not mean doing without home
cleaning. This budget allows eight hours per month for a
total of $30. Allow $20-30 for city taxes which varies accor-
ding to the size of the apartment and the area. Gasoline
could run between $35-50 assuming trips were limited to ci-
ty driving with an occasional longer trip. Car insurance will
run about $50 for a 1982 Subaru automatic with air condi-
tioning. A new special tax on an automobile will run $400
per year. Household insurance is $20 with health insurance
being variable and depending on income, age, physical con-
dition, coverage and particular sick fund. Some coverage
carried in the U.S. may still apply.
Rounding out the budget are $30 for entertainment
(eating out is expensive and a cup of coffee with friends at
the corner cafe may suffice) and $15 for miscellaneous
expenses.
Clothing is expensive in Israel compared to discount
shopping in the U.S. Most North American Israelis do their
clothes shopping while on a visit to the U.S.
Transportation is good and not costly. Within the city, it
is approximately 30 cents per ride. Cost between cities
varies depending on the distance, with a round-trip bet-
ween Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, for example, costing approx-
imately $2.25.
Of course, this budget will vary depending on lifestyle
and needs. For example, if one decided not to own a car,
the budget is reduced by approximately $100 per month.

Sukkot
Continued from Page 1
"no," that we must experience
and learn how to live with
the tension of opposites. we
gather lovely, ripe fruits to
display in the sukkah and on
the bimah of the synagogue;
and they perish. Yet the etrog,
which dries to a hard, knobby
brown "grenade," never loses
its aroma. We "live in booths"
which, we are instructed, must
at the same time be both
beautiful and fragile (a proper
sukkah must "shake in the
wind"). The sukkah, a tem-
porary shelter, must be open
to the sky in order that we
may see what is truly abiding
and permanent. While the roof
must be more closed than
open, we must still be able to
see the stars.
Over and over again, our
tradition says not "either/or"
but "both." This implies and
may perhaps help to explain
the somewhat cryptic saying
that "Both these and those are
words of the Living God."
This dialectic is most clearly
seen in the juxtaposition of a
harvest festival with our tradi-
tion's explanation that the
reason we dwell in booths is
because it is the way our
ancestors traveled in the
wilderness (to be understood,
of course, as "temporary
dwellings," not as fruit-and-
vegetable covered lean-to's or
a "chicken coop," as the
manifest of a moving and
storage company identified
one family's sukkah). The con-
trast is more than a dialectic
between wealth and poverty.
The tradition seems to be sug-
gesting that midbar
(wilderness) is not only a
geographic term but also a
choice of values, a way of life.
That may be why we do not
celebrate the time when the
Israelites entered the Promis-
ed Land, despite the fact that
logic seems to require it. After
all, we get out of Egypt each
year on Pesah. At Shavuot, we
stand at Sinai. On Sukkot, the
obvious candidate, we should
"get in." Instead, we are told
to make a thanksgiving, a time
of rejoicing, a celebration of
blessing even as we wander ba-
midbar (in the wilderness).
For our sages recognize that
existentially, no one gets in; no
one gets it all. The experience
of midbar can be in Sinai or in
Jerusalem, or even in New
York, Milwaukee, Des Moines
or Los Angeles. In truth, life is
in the journey to, not in the ar-
rival at.
Yet we often act as if success
were the goal of our lives:
achievements and possessions
more powerful jobs, fancier
cars, bigger houses. We con-
fuse the accumulation of
"stuff with security. Which,
indeed, is the more accurate
symbol of human existence
a fragile sukkah and the tradi-
tion of hospitality associated
with it, or an indestructible
bomb shelter with a strong
door to keep out other poten-
tial "survivors"?
Success is not a goal. It is,
rather, the journey along the
way. How we travel through
our lives determines whether
or not ours is a "Sacred
Pilgrimage."
AN OPEN LETTER
TO THE JEWISH COMMUNITY
Dear Friends of the Elderly,
For over 42 years, the Miami Jewish Home and Hospital for the Aged at
Douglas Gardens has served the elderly of Broward County on the basis
of need, not ability to pay. This has been possible, in part, because of our
community's support of the Douglas Gardens Thrift Shops.
Today, donations are down, proceeds are down, and it is becoming harder to
provide the services these indigent elderly need. The reason is simple. A
new thrift shop has opened in the building previously occupied by the
Douglas Gardens Thrift Shop. Its name is "The Jewish Thrift Shop".
It is for-profit, with only a very small percentage of its proceeds used
within the Jewish community ... for a local synagogue. Yet, because of
confusion over names and locations, donations meant for the Douglas
Gardens Thrift Shop are going to the wrong organization.
Please help us spread the word that the one and only Jewish thrift shop
in Broward County that serves the frail elderly residents of the Miami
Jewish Home is the Douglas Gardens Thrift Shop (also known as the
"Jewish Home for the Aged Thrift Shop"). Plan to attend the grand open-
ing of the new 15,000 sq. ft. Douglas Gardens Thrift Shop at 3169 Hallan-
dale Beach Blvd. when it is completed in November. Until then, shop at its
temporary location at 5829 Hallandale Beach Blvd.
The elderly of our Jewish community need and deserve our sup-
port. Help them, and help yourself, by donating your fully tax-deductible
items to the Douglas Gardens Thrift Shop. For free pick-up of donations,
call 981-8256.

'age 6 The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood/Friday, October 9, 1987
New Debate On Role Of Pope Pius XII During Holocaust
Continued from Page 2-
claimed that Pius "was in-
terested of course in the con-
tinuity of the institution (of the
Catholic Church). And so any
action which might be con-
sidered anti-Nazi and
antagonistic to the policy of
the Third Reich in any way
would be actually harmful."
Hilberg, author of "The
Destruction of the European
Jews" (Holmes and Meier,
NY, 1985) believes "there is no
way" Pius would be cleared.
"The record is very clear that
he did not exercise his function
as chief of the Vatican's
diplomatic service, his whole
control of the nuncios in
various countries, to exercise
leverage for the saving of
Jews. And he did not do so as
Bishop of Rome when the Jews
were deported from there in
1943 and 1944 ... So there's
no way of vindicating the omis-
sion." Hilberg said that the
Pope is "three things: head of
the Catholic Church, sovereign
leader of the Vatican state,
and Bishop of Rome. He didn't
do anythng in any of these
capacities,' said HUberg.
Much of the debate among
Catholic theologians on Pius's
role, both among his apologists
and his harshest critics, is
drawn on a series of 11
volumes based on Vatican
documents published by the
Vatican Secretariat of State in
the mid-1970s, "Acts and
Documents Relative to the Se-
cond World War, "which the
Vatican commissioned from a
team of lay historians, much in
response to the raging debate
over "The Deputy.
At loggerheads over the
Pope's wartime record are two
Catholic priests, Father
Robert Graham an American
Jesuit working at the Vatican
who edited this compendium of
Vatican wartime records, and
Father John Morley, a Jesuit
who teaches at Seton Hall
University in South Orange,
N.J.
Morley wrote a critical ap-
praisal of the Catholic Church
during the war. "Vatican
Diplomacy and the Jews Dur-
ing the Holocaust, 1939-43"
(KTAV, NY, 1980), which
draws heavily on these
volumes.
Graham sees the positive in
the Vatican history. He wrote
a 36-page pamphlet summariz-
ing the 10th volume of the
series, "Pius XII; Defense of
the Jews and Others," which
refutes charges that the Pope
was silent in face of Jewish
persecution.
In the pamphlet, for exam-
ple, Graham cites the activities
of the Archbishop of Utrecht,
The Netherlands, who "was
warned by the Nazis not to
protest the deportation of
Dutch Jews. He spoke out
anyway, and in retaliation the
Catholic Jews in Holland
(those who had been baptised)
were sent to their death."
Among them was Edith Stein,
the Carmelite nun whose
beatification this year has rais-
ed much controversy.
Graham wrote: "It could be
asked whether these good
works were enough, whether
it would have been better for
the Pope to have denounced
from the roof tops the crimes
that were occurring. This
thought troubled Pius XII, and
he confided afterward to an
associate. 'No doubt a protest
would have gained me the
praise and respect of the
civilized world, but it would
have submitted the poor Jews
to an even worse persecution."
Graham also claims that in
1944 Pius provided funds to
aid Rumanian Jews, and cites
help for the Jews of Slovakia,
which was ruled by a Nazi pup-
pet, the virulently anti-Semitic
Catholic priest Joseph Tiso.
leading a Nazi-ruled govern-
ment of Catholic clergy. The
Slovak situation has been
criticized by historians because
of the embarrassment that
would have been caused the
Church had Catholic clergy
permitted wholesale deporta-
tions of Jews. Eventually
56,000 Slovak Jews were sent
to Auschwitz.
Morley wrote that "It must
be concluded that Vatican
diplomacy failed the Jews dur-
ing the Holocaust by not doing
all that it was possible for it to
do on their behalf. It also failed
itself because in neglecting the
needs of the Jews, and pursu-
ing a goal of reserve rather
than humanitarian concern, it
betrayed the ideals it had set
for itself. The nuncios, the
secretary of state, and, most of
all, the pope share the respon-
sibility for this dual failure."
Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum, in-
ternational affairs director of
the American Jewish Commit-
tee, said that participants at
the Miami meeting with Pope
John Paul II were "shocked"
by his voluntary mention of
Pius, but that "it's clear now
that the Pope has put Pius XII
on the agenda. And so we must
be prepared to deal with that.
Not in hysteria, not in scream-
ing, and not shrill attacks."
Tanenbaum's perception of the
issue is that the effort to
rehabilitate Pius's reputation
is part of the larger tendency
to "deemphasize the victimiza-
tion of the six million Jews as
unique victims of a Final Solu-
tion, and efforts to Chris-
tianize the martyrs. That's
what is meant by a certain
tendency toward revisionism
... to emphasize Christians as
victims and to thereby in effect
remove the issue of conscience
before millions of German and
Austrian Catholics and some
other Christians in those coun-
tries ... undercutting the
energy for them to have to
face that task, for their
children to have to face that
task and understand it... It's
in that context that the Pius
XII thing now is being
rehabilitated."
However, Tanenbaum, as
well as Rabbi Mordecai Wax-
man, who was spokesman at
the Miami meeting, emphasiz-
ed that the issue will be part of
a meeting in December in
Washington between Catholic
and Jewish theologians,
representatives of various
organizations and leading
Catholic and Jewish historians
to establish once and for all the
role of Pius and the Church in
the Nazi Holocaust, and to
hash out the Catholic Church's
impact on 19 centuries of anti-
Semitism.
Henry Siegman, president of
the American Jewish Con-
gress, expressed hope that
"the Pope will prove to be cor-
rect when he says that further
scholarship will show that
Pope Pius XII .. did in fact
do everything he could have

Ship Exodus Became Symbol Of Jews' Desire For Israel
The ship Exodus was named
after the ancient journey from
slavery to freedom, but on
September 28,1947, it became
a mighty and modem symbol
of Jewish yearning to live in
Eretz Israel.
The ship had set sail from
Germany with 4,515 Holocaust
survivors, but the British, in
control of then-Palestine and
under heavy Arab pressure,
barred it at the mouth of Haifa
Harbor. The survivors refused
to leave. The British boarded
the ship.
The Jews fought back with
sticks and tin cans, but even-
tually three were killed, 28 in-
jured and the rest forced onto
three British transports for
return to Europe.
The British asked the
French to take the survivors
in. The French refused, but no
matter; the Jews said they
would only go to Eretz Israel.
They were taken to Hamburg,
but by the time Independence
was declared, May 14, 1948,
every one of them, as in-
dividuals or in small groups,
had reached Israel.
The photo on the front page
of this issue of the Jewish
Floridian was released by
United Jewish Appeal Na-
tional Chairman Martin F.
Stein from the UJA Archives.
said, "The spirit of the Exodus
lives on. In every era we

meaning of the Exodus and the
importance of the Jewish State

the Ethiopian Jews, and more
than 10,000 who would other-
wise have perished in a sub-

family and each of us has a

Wiesel said, "I think it is un-

army, a company spokesman
announced in Haifa this week.
Many of the slave laborers
were Jews.

public relations for Daimler-

Haifa University inaugurating
the Gottlibe Schumacher
Research Center, established
at the university with a
quarter-million-doflar grant
from Daimler-Benz.
The center will study the
Christian contribution to the
development of Palestine in
the 19th century, particularly,
the Templars. Gottlieb
Schumacher, for whom it was
named, was the son of a
Templar who worked in
Palestine as an engineer in the
last century.

where the Templar movement
was founded more than 100
years ago. The Templars came
to Palestine on extended
pilgrimages. They established
many "German colonies" in
Jerusalem, Haifa and Jaffa.
One of the best known, which
lasted until the outbreak of
World War II, was Sarona, in
what was then the outskirts of
Tel Aviv. It is presently a

AJCongress Urges U.S. Jews To
Participate In Mideast Peace Debate
By WILLIAM SAPHIRE
NEW YORK The
American Jewish Congress
released a policy statement
late last month endorsing an
international conference for
Middle East peace to serve as
the framework for direct
Israeli-Arab negotiations.
The matter has split Israel's
unity coalition government
along party lines: Labor favors
the conference scenario, Likud
is adamantly opposed. The
AJCongress statement clearly
favors the position of Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres, the
Labor Party leader.
It acknowledged in its state-
ment that by so doing the
organization "broke tradition
under which American Jewish
organizations have refrained
from speaking out on issues af-
fecting the peace process."
The statement, released in
the name of AJCongress presi-
dent Theodore Mann, main-
tained that because "the
government of Israel itself is
divided and deadlocked over
how to approach the peace pro-
cess" it was "necessary and
appropriate" for American
Jews to "participate in the cur-
rent historic debate.
Release of the policy state-
ment apparently was timed to
coincide with Peres' visit to
New York to attend the 42nd
annual session of the United
Nations General Assembly.
Asked about it at a briefing for
Israeli reporters at the UN
Tuesday morning (Sept. 22),
the Israeli Foreign Minister
said he thought American
Jews had an absolute right to
express their opinions about
anything but he did not believe
the AJCongress statement
would change or have any ef-
fect on the debate over the
issue in Israel.
"American Jews are our
partners. I'm not disturbed by
a debate within the Jewish
people. The debate about an in-
ternational peace conference is
a legitimate debate and I don't
see any harm in it," Peres
said.
There were no other im-
mediate comments from
Israeli sources. But the reac-
tions of other mainstream
American Jewish organiza-
tions ranged from mildly
negative to, in one case, an
angry attack on the
AJCongress' initiative.
The AJCongress appeared
to have had second thoughts
on the impact of its policy
statement. The first text was
"killed" after it was released
to the press. It was followed by
a new text several hours later
which, while essentially the
same, contained softer
language in many instances.
Mann, reached by telephone
in Philadelphia Tuesday morn-
ing, explained to the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that the
first text was a draft that had
been put before the
AJCongress National Govern-
ing Council at a meeting on
September 13 but not approv-
ed and its release was an error.
The second text, he said, was
the one endorsed by the Gover-
ning Council on the same date.
In its statement, the
AJCongress takes the position
that an international peace
conference "satisfied in suffi-
cient measure Israel's in-
sistence over the past 39 years
that peace can be achieved on-
ly in direct, face-to-face
negotiations."
It said a major consideration
in releasing the position paper
was the finding of recent
demographic studies on Arab
population growth. The rise in
Arab numbers "is rapidly
transforming "Greater Israel'
Israel plus the West Bank
and Gaza into a de facto bi-
national state, politically and
culturally."
According to the
AJCongress, "If no significant
political adjustments are
made, the demographic im-
peratives will force Israel to
choose by the year 2000 bet-
ween becoming a non-Jewish
state or a non-democratic
state." To find a "realistic
alternative," the AJCongress
supports an international
peace conference, if, the state-
ment stressed, there are
"reasonable assurances" that
"written understandings bet-
ween Foreign Minister Peres
and King Hussein (of Jordan)
and the safeguards they con-
tain" will be honored.
The AJCongress said it
believes that direct negotia-
tions under an international
conference "might bring ...
genuine movement toward
peace; the crafting of a consen-
sual set of compromises, both
territorial and functional that
would remove the stigma and
opprobrium suffered by an em-
battled occupier," and "the
relief of Israel and its sup-
porters from the anguish in-
volved in the daunting choice
between a non-democratic and
a non-Jewish bi-national
state."
The statement conceded
there were "risks" in joining
such a conference, such as
"having to leave the con-
ference table and suffer con-
demnation as the party that
broke up the conference. But
they are not security risks and
they do not outweigh the ad-
vantages of an international
peace conference based on
safeguards agreed to by King
Hussein ..
"These understandings pro-
pose that as a prerequisite, all
prospective conveners will be
obliged to recognize Israel,
that it will be made une-
quivocally clear from the start
that the essential purpose of
the conference is to legitimize
direct negotiations between
and among the most interested
parties, and that the referral
to the conveners of any issue
for resolution will require the
consent of all parties to the
negotiations."
The statement noted that
"Israel has made clear that as
a prerequisite for participation
the Soviet Union will be oblig-
ed to restore diplomatic rela-
tions and liberalize Jewish
emigration."
The AJCongress urged that
"achieving these conditions
and the subsequent convening
of such a conference ought to
be energetically pursued. It
assailed "Arab intransigence
and obdurate refusal to accept
the legitimacy of a Jewish
state in the area ... But the
fact of that refusal must never
become a reason for abandon-
ing or diminishing our pursuit
of peace.
"Large numbers of Israelis
and American Jews are con-
vinced that there are realistic
alternatives to the status quo
that would enhance Israel's
security and would avoid the
demographic and other
dangers of continuing an

ibout the wisdom and nature
of an international peace con-
ference both in Israel and in
the United States. The people
and government of Israel have
the responsibility for the safe-
ty of the state and therefore
they must make their decision
through their democratic
process."
Milton Shapiro, president of
the Zionist Organization of
America, declared that "If the
rationale of the American
Jewish Congress was followed,
there wouldnever have been a
Jewish State established in the
first place. By contrast, ZOA
believes that Israeli policy in
such matters is the
prerogative of the people of
Israel, who are quite capable
of making decisions in their
own democratic self-interest."
The ZOA, Shapiro said,"re-
Jects the negative and
defeatist conclusion of the
American Jewish Congress."
He noted that "the potential
danger for Israel in an interna-
tional peace conference under
present circumstances far
outweighs its potential for
peace.
Abraham Foxman, national
director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, rejected the
AJCongress' implicit call on
other American Jewish
organizations to follow its in-
itiative. "We won't do it. For
me the stakes are too high to
make a mistake. When and if
Israel makes up its mind on
how to proceed, then we'll deal
with whether we support it or
not," Foxman said in a state-
ment to the press.
The modification of
language between the first and
second texts released by the
AJCongress was apparent in
the first paragraph of each.
The first text said the
organization backed the inter-
national peace conference "re-
jected by Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir." The second text
said it supported a compromise
solution for the occupied ter-
ritories and backs the interna-
tional peace conference "as ad-
vocated by Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres."
In the first version it spoke
of American Jewish organiza-
tions' reticence "on issues af-
fecting Israel's security." That
was changed to read "issues
affecting the peace process."
Elsewhere, the first text
called on American Jews to
take part in "the continuing
examination of options." In
the second text that was
changed to "participate in the
current historic debate."
A paragraph in the first ver-
sion which spoke of relieving
Israel of the "choice between a
non-democratic repressive
state and a non-Jewish bina-
tional state" appeared in the
second text, but with the word
"repressive" eliminated.
Also eliminated from the se-
cond text was a paragraph
which stated. "We regret that
the development of such alter-
natives has been severely
hampered by those who reject
all compromise and seem im-
mutably dedicated to the an-
nexation of the occupied ter-
ritories, no matter the risk to a
democratic Israel or a viable
Jewish state."
In releasing what he termed
"this unprecedented policy \
statement' Mann described it
as the product of a "careful,
deliberate and responsible pro-
cess."

Israel Beats Inflation
GENEVA (JTA) Israel
led the world in beating down
inflation last year according to
"ILO Information," the mon-
thly newsletter of the Interna-
tional Labor Organization, a
United Nations agency based
here.
The newsletter said 1986
was a turning point for several
countries beset by galloping in-
flation. In Israel, the inflation
rate plummeted from 186 per-
cent to 20 percent. Bolivia
reduced inflation from 175 per-
cent to 66 percent, Argentina
from 355 to 82 percent and
Brazil from 228 to 68 percent.

Temple Beth-El
Mr. and Mrs. Joel Harrison,
members of Temple Beth El in
Hollywood, celebrated their
50th Wedding Anniversary on
Oct. 2.
Rabbi Samuel Z. Jaffe of
Temple Beth El says that the
last day of the eight-day
festival of Sukkot is called
Shmini Atzereth which means
"the eighth day of solemn
assembly. Although the
original purpose and meaning
of this day, added to the seven-
day festival of Sukkot, is
uncertain, it is believed that it
was related in some way to an
aspect of the harvest.
Reform Jews combine into
one day the celebration of Sim-
chat Torah and Shmini
Atzereth. Simchat Torah
literally means, "rejoicing
over the Torah." In celebra-
tion, all the Torahs are taken
from the Ark and carried in a
procession (Hakafot) around
the Temple with both adults
and children following.
At this time, the last portion
of the Torah is read (tne last
two chapters Deuteronomy)
and, since we must never
finish the Torah reading, im-
mediately thereafter the first
portion of Genesis is read,
starting again the Torah
reading for the coming year.
The Simchat Torah Service
will take place on Wednesday
evening, Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m.
The entire Congregational
family, children and adults, is
invited to join the Hakafot
(Procession) with the Torahs
around the Sanctuary, accom-
panied by joyous singing.
Following the Procession,
refreshments will be served in
the Auditorium.
For the Shmini Atzereth
Service, Yizkor will be recited
on Thursday, Oct. 15 at 10:00

ADL Lambaste U.S. Dept of Ed.
NEW YORK, NY The Anti-Defamation League of
B nai B'rith has criticized a U.S. Department of Education
review panel for saying that a nationwide Holocaust
teaching curriculum is unbalanced because it does not pre-
sent the Nazi point of view and is inspired by "anti-
Christian" ties. In a letter to Secretary of Education
William J. Bennett, ADL national director Abraham H.
Foxman asserted that it is proper to ask how Nazism took
over Germany and how the assault on the Jews became cen-
tral to its policies. "But to suggest that the Nazis' program
is a legitimate view is another matter altogether,,rhe said.
Responding to another criticism of the panel that the
program has too much emotional impact on students Mr.
Foxman declared:
"Students should not, of course, be asked to sound the
depths of human emotion. But a study of Nazi methods of
mass annihilation can yield many important historical in-
sights. It can show how a nation's laws, its scientific elite
and its religious ideals the hallmarks of Western civiliza-
tion can be deployed to kill purposefully and without
remorse."

Federation 1987-'88 Board of Directors .
Friday, October 9, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 11
Six Boca Raton Area Leaders
Israel Rejects USSR Offer
Committed, dedicated and
determined to make the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale one of the
most structured organizations
in South Florida serving the
growing population of North
Broward County residents,
social welfare and services
needs are six members of the
Boca Raton community.
The officers include vice
presidents Alvera A. Gold and
Mark A. Levy, immediate past
president Brian J. Sherr, past
president Albert E. Garnitz,
advisory member Jordan
Snyder and board member
Ethel H. Waldman.
In announcing the board
members, president Sheldon
S. Polish indicated, "that the
20-area municipalities have
grown in great proportions
reaching every segment of the
Jewish community and,
therefore, must reflect these
various opinions. These
representatives will help to
provide the administrative and
financial planning necessary to
make these individual city
residents a vital and strong
aspect of the Federation fami-
ly. They will play an intrinsic
role in bringing about millions
of dollars to help maintain and
improve the quality of life for
Jews in North Broward Coun-
ty, in Israel and throughout
the world."
Totally committed to help-
ing her brethren in need,
Alvera Gold has demonstrated
her devotion and generosity to
the Jewish community in her
multiple leadership roles.
President of the Women's
Division, she was the first
woman elected from the Fort
Lauderdale Federation to
serve on the National
Women's UJA board. She is
the Project Renewal chair, on
a national, state and local
level, and in '87 was responsi-
ble for the record-breaking
$1.25 plus million raised by the
Women's Division as UJA
campaign chair.
One of the country's leading
building entrepreneurs, Mark
Levy, has been associated with
the Federation/UJA for a
number of years, serving as
campaign chairman, Builders
and Developers Division,
Young Leadership and Major
Gifts. The president of Oriole
Homes Corp., Pompano
Beach, he is recognized as one
of the national UJA leading
spokesmen, having developed
extensive planning and pro-
cedures for the National UJA
Young Leadership Cabinet. He
will once again chair the '88
Federation/UJA Builders Divi-
sion drive.
Sherr, who completed his se-
cond term as president in May,
is respected as one of South
Florida's most distinguished
attorneys. A senior partner in
the Fort Lauderdale firm of
Sherr, Tiballi and Fayne, he
has given unlimited service to
the Federation/UJA and the
community. A former presi-
dent of the Jewish Family Ser-
vice, he has been instrumental
in the success of the last two
Federation/UJA campaigns
which have raised a record
$12.7 plus million. A recipient
of the Young Leadership
Award, he has been one of the
driving forces behind the plan-
ned Federation housing for the
elderly HUD 202 subsidized
program, which will be located
in West Sunrise.
Albert Garnitz, Federation
president from 1973^75, was
the prime factor in the early
years of Federation, having et-
ched new and innovative pro-
grams and formulating new
policies. Through his work in
the Major Gifts and campaign
leadership roles, he provided
the expertise and generosity
that accomplished record new
fund-raising in the North
Broward County community.
As a member of the advisory
board, Jordan Snyder will help
to assess the community's
needs through a comprehen-
sive planning process. As one
of Federation s first leaders,
he has already demonstrated
his special talents for
evaluating and developing new
ideas and actions to
strengthen the community's
standards of services.
Ethel Waldman, former vice
president, is one of Federa-
tion's stalwarts, having the
distinction of being one of the
few women in the U.S. to be
invited to a special fact-finding
mission to Beirut, Lebanon, in
1982 when she served as the
Federation/UJA general chair-
man. A member of the national
UJA campaign cabinet, she
was the honoree at the '85
UJA Major Gifts Dinner, has
received the State of Israel
Bonds "Woman of Valor"
award and is a life member of
Hadassah and Brandeis
Women's Association.
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Israel rejected an offer by the
Soviet Union that the two
countries open "interest of-
fices" in Tel Aviv and Moscow,
respectively, as a temporary
substitute for the re-
establishment of full
diplomatic relations which the
USSR broke 20 years ago,
Maariv reported Wednesday.
According to Maariv, the of-
fer was made by Soviet
Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze when he met
with Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres in New York Interest of-
fices, the lowest level of
diplomatic representatives,
were established by Israel and
Poland earlier this year and
soon will be established by
Israel and Hungary.
Shevardnadze told Peres it
would be a "step to improve
relations" between their coun-
tries, Maariv reported. But
Peres turned him down, saying
Israel-USSR relations must be
on a higher level than relations
with Poland and Hungary.

Promenade Pulls Tourists
To Its Magnetic Site
Organizations
By DAVID LANDAU
NEAR JERUSALEM -
One of this city's most fre-
quented tourist sites is neither
an archaeological site nor a
religious shrine and is not even
six months old. The Walter
and Elise Haas Promenade,
already fondly called "the pro-
menade," attracts hundreds of
visitors every day.
Built along a ridge some 2.5
miles to the south of the Old
City, the three block-long
walkway commands a
breathtaking view of the
Mount of Olives, Mount
Scopus, the Old City walls and
the modern city.
Of course, the view has
always existed; drivers on
their way to the suburb of East
Talpiot would peek at it as
they wound their way along
the narrow road. Or people
walking through the woods on
the steep hillside below the
United Nations Middle East
headquarters could gaze at the
historic landscape. But only
privileged visitors to the UN
building, formerly the
residence of the British High
Commissioner, could ap-
preciate the full majestic view.
Now one can stroll along the
six-yard-wide promenade,
built next to the recently
widened and straightened road
leading to the UN building and
East Talpiot, and see the full
east-to-west panorama.
The promenade was official-
ly opened on Jerusalem Day
last May, but rumor of the
superb view had spread long
before then. On Independence
Day, three weeks earlier,
groups of Jerusalemites
already were gathering there.
Indeed, the promenade,
which is built in the form of a
viaduct of Jerusalem stone
with a Victorian solidity
reminiscent of the Thames and
Seine embankments, is rarely
empty. Joggers measure out a
full kilometer from the parking
lot to the end of the pro-
menade and back. Elderly
gentlemen walk briskly,
perhaps at the suggestion of
their cardiac specialists. Cour-
ting couples sit in the stone
alcoves covered with slated
wooden roofs. Numerous stone
benches line the walkway.

At night, when the pro-
menade is romantically lit by
wrought-iron lanterns, the
visitor can appreciate the
floodlighting of the Old City
walls and can easily spot the
bright lights above the
Western Wall.
Yet, the hour just before
sunset is the most popular
time at the promenade, when a
cool wind blows across the
ridge, even at the height of
summer. Then the Old City's
limestone walls reflect the
pink-gold evening light, and
the golden dome of the Mosque
of Omar glints in the setting
sun.
The promenade is now a
"must" on the itinerary of
every tourist here. Busloads of
visitors spill out onto semi-
circular stone observation
platform in the middle of the
site. They sit on the wide ter-
races ot "this amphitheater and
listen to their guides recount
the story of Jerusalem. It is
easier to understand the
growth of the original City of
David on when you can see the
hills.
On a clear day, you can even
see the Hills of Moab in Jordan
to the east, as well as the arid
hills of the Judean desert
leading down to the Dead Sea.
The southern wall of the Tem-
ple Mount is clearly visible,
and the keen-sighted visitor
can just pick out signs of the
archaeological park below.
The promenade, donated by
the Haas family of San Fran-
cisco, was designed by U.S. ar-
chitect Larry Halperin and
Israeli landscape architect
Shlomo Aronson.
