'Good Faith' Report On East Berlin Rabbi
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
The Communist system
behind the Berlin Wall is not
so bad and Jews have a place in
that society, infers Dr. Irene
Runge, an American born
daughter of Jewish-German
immigrants. "It's a system I
believe in," says the scholar,
who moved to Germany with
her parents in 1949 and has liv-
ed in East Berlin ever since.
Runge, a soziologin Ger-
man for sociologist has
come to the United States with
a delegation of scientists, ar-
tists, and scholars who will
represent the German
Democratic Republic (GDR) in
a cultural exchange program
in Minneapolis this week.
Runge, an associate pro-
fessor in the history depart-
ment of East Berlin's Hum-
boldt University, included in
her U.S. stops a Miami visit
this week in which she discuss-
ed the pulse of Judaism in East
Germany and the American
rabbi who last month became
the first full-time rabbi in 19
years to serve East Berlin's
only congregation.
East Germany's Jewish
That rabbi is Isaac Neuman
of Champlain, 111. Neuman is a
Reform rabbi but as Runge ex-
plained, the one congregation
in East Berlin has members
ranging from the Orthodox to
liberal with about 200
members. Although there are
no certain figures, she
estimates that there are ap-
proximately 2,000 Jews in
East Berlin, a city that prior to
the Holocaust counted 170,000

Brandeis Prexy:- "
School No Less Jewish
For Serving Pork And Shellfish

The Jewish Advocate
The recent introduction of
pork and shellfish in a
cafeteria of Brandeis Universi-
ty here does not as some
faculty critics claim
diminish the Jewish character
of the school, according to its
president, Evelyn Handler.
"How many Jews do you
know who keep kosher?" she
asked in a recent interview.
"Brandeis consists of Jews of
every stripe, from the most
Orthodox to those who are
non-practicing but feel very
culturally and passionately
Jewish ... There is nothing
stronger about Brandeis than
its ties to the Jewish
The university has one
kosher dining hall, and the
other dining halls have always
served non-kosher food. To
Handler, the availability of
pork and shellfish is no dif-
ferent than offering
cheeseburgers, and she is sure
that those who keep strict
kashrut would agree.
She said Brandeis must be
viewed not as a Jewish univer-
sity but as "a non-sectarian
university with strong Jewish
support. We want every stu-
dent to be comfortable here.
We pride ourselves on our
Handler said the board of
trustees' decision to allow the
new foods was made so that
"every kid at Brandeis should
be as comfortable as at any
other university." She added
that Brandeis has "always
assisted the Orthodox Jew to
function on this campus," and
that will not change.
The comfort argument has
been challenged by some facul-
ty members. "Can anyone
believe that there is a student
anywhere whose decision to
enter Brandeis will depend on
whether he can get a bacon,
lettuce and tomato sandwich
for lunch?" asked Prof. Marvin
Fox, director of the Lown
School of Near Eastern and
Judaic Studies, and now on
Emphasizing that he was
speaking as an individual, he
said: "It would be one thing if,
from the beginning of
Brandeis, there had been no
restrictions. But to suddenly
and deliberately, in the
school's 39th year, change the
policy established by Dr.

Five members of a rightwing
tax-protest group with links to
a violently anti-Semitic
organization were convicted in
Las Vegas of threatening the
lives of agents of the Internal
RevenueService and a Nevada

The five are members of the
Committee of the States, a
group affiliated with the Chris-
tian Identity movement, which
espouses the belief that the
Jews are the children of Satan
and which calls the United
States government "ZOG"

Richard Van Hazel of Arizona;
and Patrick McCray and his
brother George McCray, of

Those convicted face possi-

The trial was monitored by
the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith in Los Angeles,
which has furnished informa-
tion on the case to law enforce-
ment agencies throughout the
country. Betsy Rosenthal,
ADL Western states civil
rights director, called the ver-
dict a "warning to extremists
that the American people will
not tolerate their threats of
physical harm to our officials
and government institutions."
The ADL had obtained
documents from the Commit-

(There are an estimated 500
members in the eight con-
gregations that are in East
Germany today, Runge says.)
Runge visited The Jewish
Floridian last week with U.S.
Rep. William Lehman (D.,
North Dade), who said his in-
volvement in securing the ser-
vices of the new rabbi began
during a 1986 visit to East
Germany when he met with
UA Ambassador to the GDR, tates and East GermanyT ac~
cording to Lehman.
Religious Affairs, Klaus Gysi,
suggested more than once that
"the government has a closer
relationship with the Jews
than with other religious com-
munities in the GDR, because
many in the current Marxist
government fought with Jews
on the streets against Hitler's
Brownshirts and, against

Arrangements were made
for the rabbi at high levels of

Francis Meehan.
"I asked him what the main
problem was in the Jewish
community. He said, 'we need
a full-time rabbi.' Lehman
recalled adding the problem
was in part a lack of com-
munication between the
Jewish community and the
East German government on
the type of clergy needed.
'The GDR is unique in the
Soviet east bloc vis-a-vis its
toleration of organized
religion," Lehman reported on
his return from East

Says Runge: "The rabbi is
able to get in and out of the
country whenever he wants.
He has a driver who can go in
and out of West Berlin. He has
a househelper. He's getting a
secretary, he has an office, he
has a three-room apartment,
and he has a salary that mat-
ches the salary of a university
Lehman noted that the rela-
tionship between the GDR and
United States on this issue
takes on increased diplomatic
importance because not too
much is negotiated bilaterally
between the U.S. and GDR.
"Achieving a small agree-
ment in the non-political area
can improve the political
climate for cooperation on
other issues. I learned from
our State Department
diplomats that success on this
project would be helpful to our
bilateral negotiations concern-
ing U.S. and Jewish property
claims and other issues.
From the East German point
of view, Lehman said, "obtain-
ing trade concessions with the
U.S. is one of the major goals
of the current government.
But one of the problems is as
long as they have the Berlin
Wall up it is very unlikely the
U.S. will drop trade restric-
tions on the GDR."
While she was in Miami,
Runge also met with members
of the American Jewish Com-
mittee, the organization in-
strumental in bringing Rabbi
Neuman to East Berlin.
'Making do' rabbinicallv
The last time her congrega-
tion had a full-time rabbi was
19 years ago, Runge said.
Since then, the congregation
has brought in rabbis on
holidays and employed a chaz-
zan full time. They "imported"

Fox saw the food decision as
part of an overall board at-
tempt to make Brandeis less
Jewish and more universal. He
said the calendar, for the first
time in at least 15 years,
doesn't list the names of
Jewish holidays.
Furthermore, he said a
report issued by the board last
spring referred to the
"mistaken impression" that
Brandeis is intended mainly
for the Jewish community as
"the most serious handicap in
attracting qualified students."
a rabbi because there were no
rabbis left in Germany follow-
ing the Holocaust, she said.
"We could have trained
somebody. We could have sent
them to Hungary where they
have rabbinical schools," she
said. "But we didn't find
anybody young enough or old
enough who was willing to go
to study for seven years to
become a rabbi."
The new rabbi immediately
began to involve the communi-
ty by offering Hebrew lessons.
"Newspapers, radio and
television became very in-
terested. People who hadn't
been to synagogue came
because they heard there was
a new rabbi. Even members
who did not show up for a long
time showed up," Runge said.
The rabbi is expecting to
have difficulties with members
of the congregation who are
more traditional, however,
because he is Reform. He will
have to compromise, Runge
The Jewish community is so
small that there does not ap-
pear to be any move for it to
flourish into the American-
style system of separate con-
gregations for Orthodox, Con-
servative, Reform and
Reconstructionist movements
of Judaism.
Anti-fascist tradition
Asked if anti-Semitism
resurfaced with the revived
focus on Judaism in Germany,
the birthplace of Nazism and
the Holocaust, Runge
answered, "We don't have
neo-Nazis and there's not a
basis for anti-Semites to do
anything. We can talk about
people who are privately anti-
Semites, but there's a very
strong anti-fascist tradition in
"People are very interested,
and the new rabbi has piles of
letters from Jews and non-
Jews along with invitations to
spaak at universities. There's a
lot of willingness to learn in
this country,' she said.
"He wants people to feel
good in the community,"
Runge said. "He's very ag-
gressive. We think it's great
that he's asking questions that
a lot of us don t ask anymore.
For example, if something has
to be renovated he says 'It
looks terrible, let's fix it.' "
Lehman confirmed that the
East German government is
preserving the huge Jewish
cemetery there and that the
government initiated a project
to finance reconstruction of
what was the main synagogue
in Berlin, which was destroyed
during Kristallnacht, and the
site from which many in the
Jewish community were
deported to the death camps.
In East Germany today, the
problem would not be opening
a yeshiva, it would be a pro-
blem finding Jews to go there
Runge said.
"It's not apathy. We're talk-
ing about very small numbers.
A lot of them are older. We're
all established persons. We're
all professionals. Everybody
has a good job, good income, so
people are not that much after
getting into a yeshiva."
Says Lehman: "It sounds
like the Jewish community in
my hometown of Selma, Ala.
They don't know whether
they're Jews or whether
they're Southerners!"
Asked why her parents
returned to Germany after the
Holocaust, Runge answers,
"They wanted to go back to a
new Germany in which they
believed in. They wanted to go
back to an anti-fascist Ger-
many. That's why I think it's
important for Jewish people to
live in Germany. You can't just
abandon Germany and say, 'no
Jews anymore.'

In addition, Gale was long
viewed as a leader of the Posse
Comitatus, an organization of
loosely affiliated bands of arm-
ed vigilantes. The Posse gain-
ed national recognition in 1983
when one of its members, Gor-
don Kahl, was indicted for kill-
ing two U.S. marshalls and
later killed himself in a shoot-
out with police in Arkansas.
Gale, as a Posse evangelist,
supplied tapes for broadcast to
radio station KTTL-FM in
Dodge City, Kansas, in 1983.
He, along with James
Wickstrom, another Posse
evangelist, also spoke at at
least one meeting of local
farmers stricken by the in-
tense farm crisis and prone to
scape-goating Jews and others
in a conspiracy against them.
In his broadcasts, Gale
espoused violence while invok-
ing God's name, and urged the
collection of dossiers on
"every damn Jew rabbi in this
land, and every Anti-
Defamation League leader or
JDL leader in this land." He is
alleged to hold paramilitary
training operations, Rosenthal
said, adding that Gale had
written training manuals for
the Posse. She said he is
reportedly in poor health.

is currently free on bail,

there next year.

which he served jail time.

Moment Of Silence
'Heard' Before
Supreme Court
The Supreme Court heard
arguments last week on
whether a 1987 New Jersey
law requiring a minute of
silence in public schools "for
private contemplation and in-
trospection' violated the First
Amendment prohibition on the
establishment or religion.
The case, Karcher v. May, is
The Reagan Administration
has filed a brief declaring that
while it believes the law is con-
stitutional, the appeal should
be dismissed becasue Karcher
has no jurisdiction.
The law was adopted in
December 1982, when the
Assembly overrode a veto by
Gov. Thomas Kean, a
Republican. May immediately

sion by the Federal District
Court in New Jersey that the
law was unconstitutional.
Norman Cantor, a Trenton,
New Jersey lawyer, represen-
ting Jeffrey May, a New
Jersey teacher, who along with
several parents and students
challenged the law, argued
that discussion in the New
Jersey Legislature during the
debate on the bill
demonstrated that supporters
wanted the legislation as a way

Cantor said teachers could
use the minute of silence to in-

When neither Kean nor his
attorney general would defend
the suit, Karcher decided to
defend it in his capacity as
speaker. But about the time
the Court of Appeals gave its
decision in 1985, the
Republican took over the
Assmebly, and the new
speaker, Charles Hardwick,
asked that his name, which had
been substituted for Karcher's

Court, be withdrawn.

where pupils would not
understand the meaning of
"contemplation and
introspection." (
But Rex Lee, representing
Alan Karcher, former Speaker
of the New Jersey Assembly,
said the minute of silence was
a "legitimate secular" act
designed to quiet down
students as the school day
He said the law to set aside
the minute was mandatory on-
ly for principals and teachers,
not students, who could use it,
or not use it, in any way they
The law reads:
"Principals and teachers in
each public elementary and
secondary school of each
school district in this state
shall permit students to
observe a one-minute period of
silence to be used solely at the
discretion of the individual stu-
dent, before the opening of ex-
ercises of each school day for
quiet and private contempla-
tion and introspection."
While the Supreme Court in
1985 ruled unconstitutional an
Alabama law providing for a
minute of silence for "medita-
tion and voluntary prayer,"
the Court may decide the
latest case on the technical
grounds that Karcher did not
have the "standing" to file the
peal, the lower court decision
would stand and the New
Jersey law would be stricken
from the books.
- If the court decides Karcher
has the right to appeal and
deals with the constitutional
establishment of religion issue,
some observers believe it
would result in a 4-4 spit, since
the court is short one justice.
This too would uphold the

The Rare Mixed Marriage
Conversion In A Non-Jewish Home
A disenchanted Catholic
woman married an indifferent
Christian and later converted
to Judaism. She believes her
marriage deserves a sym-
pathetic understanding,
something born-Jews often
withhold from more typical
mixed marriages.
Sharon Haber, a data
systems analyst in Huntington
Beach, Calif., described her
journey to acceptance of
Judaism, beginning at age 16,
and the impact of that journey
on herself and her family in an
article in a recent issue of
She pointed out that her
marriage had been nominally
Christian until she converted,
totally unlike the pattern
which concerns Jewish com-
munal leaders in which a
Jew, usually a male, marries a
non-Jew who does not convert.
The Haber-style mixed mar-
riage is rare but it does hap-
pen. Rabbi Joseph Glaser, ex-
ecutive vice president of the
Central Conference of
American Rabbis (CCAR), told
the JTA that some Reform
rabbis have told the CCAR
about requests to officiate at
weddings of prospective con-
verts "and we discourage"
the idea.
Haber agreed that it was ap-
propriate for a rabbi, or even a
rabbinical court, to question
how real the opportunity was
for home celebration of
Judaism in the prospective
convert's household. But, she
argued, that should not mean
that a non-Jew seeking conver-
sion whose sincerity had been
proven and who had
demonstrated satisfactorily
that he or she could fulfill the
obligations of a Jew, should be
denied acceptance solely on
the basis that a mixed mar-
riage would be created.
She began her account by
declaring that "the one ques-
tion I (along with every other
convert to Judaism) am asked
repeatedly is a simple one and
has no simple answer. It is
BBYO's Six Million Pennies
Project Entering Eighth Year
The Gold Coast Council of
the B'nai B'rith Youth
Organization has selected the
new 1987-88 Chairpeople for
its Six Million Pennies Project,
now entering its eighth year.
Lauren Busch of Emet BBG
and Eric Moshe of Tzahal AZA
both in Plantation are now at
the helm and intend to spur
the drive forward.
BBYO's Six Million Pennies
Project was begun in 1979 by
the BBYO's youth leaders as a
way to commemorate the lives
of the Six Million Jews who
perished in the Holocaust.
Those who created the project
found it difficult to com-
prehend the figure "six
million" and thus conceived of
a plan whereby six million pen-
nies would be collected to help
them visualize its immensity.
Continuous efforts by both the
youth and the adult B'nai
B'rith and B'nai B'rith Women
groups have brought the total
collected to 1.6 million. But the
members have not been
discouraged. Said one
member, "Sure it's frustrating
but it forces you to think about
just how many individual lives
were actually lost during those
years." And instead of giving
up, they are more determined
than ever to bring the Project
closer to its eventual goal.
When completed, the
resulting $60,000 will be
allocated by the Gold Coast
Council youth to organizations
which work to preserve the
memory of the Holocaust and
contribute to Jewish survival.
If you or your organization
wish to become involved or
would simply like more infor-
mation about the Pennies Pro-
ject, please call the BBYO of-
fice at 581-0218 or 925-4135.
'Why?' That question is usually
followed closely by 'Is your
husband Jewish?' People are
surprised and confused when I
say he is not."
Haber's brief history of her
growing inability to accept
basic tenets of Christianity
and her expanding acquain-
tance with intellectually- and
morally-attractive Jews led
her to decide gradually that
what she wanted was a
spiritual home, "a place where
I could feel comfortable wor-
shipping the one God in which
I believed, a faith in which I
could raise my children with
conviction and a community of
which I could be a part."
Judaism, as she understood
it, seemed to fit that goal. But
during conversations with a
rabbi, she discussed the
unusual problems of how her
husband, Mike, would react to
her decision by which she
would change a nominally
Christian union into a mixed
marriage and to plan for con-
sistent Jewish practices in a
nominally non-Jewish home.
She recalled that she and
Mike "literally spent hours
about how our children would
be raised as Jewish (by this
time our son was on the way),
what I wanted our (Jewish)
observances to be as regards
to kashrut, Shabbat and the
holidays and festivals and how
this would affect Mike."
Mike began attending Sab-
bath services with her from
time to time. "We attended
the temple's second night
Seder and he came to the High
Holy Day services with me. He
became acquainted with the
rabbi and grew to highly
respect him. We discussed
having a bris for our son and
things such as temple
Could all this have happened
if Mike had equally strong
religious views? She
acknowledged that "one of the
reasons it has been so suc-
cessful for us is Mike's flex-
ibility in this area," which
stemmed from the fact that he
had not been raised "with any
religious training."
As in more typical mixed
marriages, religious holidays
presented difficulties,
specifically Christmas, in
which "the problems are not
between us but usually stem
from other friends and
"We do not celebrate the
holiday," she reported, "but
Mike does have a daughter by
a former marriage and we con-
tinue to send her gifts for her
holiday as we do the rest of our
Christian family members."
She added that "they, in
turn, give us gifts on
Chanukah.'' She said, "We
have agreed to not make
Chanukah a Jewish Christmas,
but rather to keep it in
perspective as the minor
Jewish holiday that it is."
Out of her experience, she
reported two firm conclusions.
One was that the rabbi should
be concerned about conversion
creating barriers between hus-
band and wife when one
spouse remains a non-Jew,
which apparently was not one
of her own difficulties.
The other was that rabbis, in
approaching such issues,
should encourage the
conversion-seeker to work out
any differences within the cou-
ple before conversion takes

domestic program, expanding
the scope of its activities to
take in community issues,
social welfare concerns, and,
as always, improving voca-
tional education. American

Israel's Economy On Verge Of New Growth
JERUSALEM (JTA) Israel's economy, stagnant for
years appears to be on the verge of period of
growth. But it faces severe difficulties, indicated by figures
released this week by the Central Bureau of Statistics.
oI5?Sfif-the*fit nine months of 1987> Israel P^d some
$8.25 billion for imported goods $1.5 billion more than in
the same period of 1986. The level of imports this year has
been higher than in any year from 1980-85. The highest rise
was in the import of consumer products, up 36 percent over
last year.
The Bank of Israel announced that the foreign debt now
stands at $25.7 billion, an increase of $693 million.
Theoretically, every Israeli owes more than $5,000 in
foreign debt.
Economists attributed the increase of the foreign debt to
the rise in private loans taken overseas and the weakening
of the U.S. dollar against European and Japanese curren-
cies. The Israeli Shekel is geared to the dollar.

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 3196 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 981-8245
