Sharansky in Profile:
First We Become Zionists Then We Become Jews
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
the former Soviet refusenik
whose fight for freedom
became a cause championed by
Jews and other supporters
worldwide, says he has not
been to a therapist or
psychiatrist since his sudden
release to Israel in February
"I never had those problems.
I think the KGB helped me to
be absolutely healthy from the
psychological point of view,"
Sharansky mused as he shared
some of his struggles, current
lifestyle and hopes in an ex-
clusive interview with The
Jewish Floridian.
While it is common for
Americans to seek counseling
to help with their struggles, it
is unlikely that half as many
have endured the mental and
physical torture Sharansky
faced while imprisoned for
almost a decade in Soviet
prison and labor camps. There
were years that went by when
he could not see his family,
times he was placed in an isola-
tion cell with no outside

had his methods of coping.

Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
THE COLOR and con-
troversy surrounding the
Pope's September meeting
with Jewish leader in Miami
has died down, but the
Catholic-Jewish dialogue con-
tinues, as evidenced by this
Monday's meeting of local rab-
bis and representatives of the
Archdiocese of Miami, all key
players in the papal visit, at
Barry University.

Men with yarmulkes and
women on their way to work
stopped by Abraham's Bakery
on 167th Street in North
Miami Beach, where the
pastries looked good and
smelled even better.
The cash register was ring-
ing, a sign of prosperity for the
bakery's Cuban-born owner,
who once had it so bad in
Havana that she cried out in
pain when the food rations
were not enough to feed her
hungry children.
It is Friday and soon
Moraima Martinez will close
her bakery for the Sabbath.
The sign on the window says
that the bakery is strictly
kosher and supervised by one
of the country's most
respected kashrut supervisory
agencies. Signs also indicate
that the bakery is closed in
observance of Sabbath laws.
"In my business and my
house nobody does any work
on 8habbas," she says. "I con-
sider myself a shomer shabbas
in the very meaning of the
word since I am a Sabbath
observer the way the bible
specifies in Isaiah, Chapter 58,
Verse 13."
Martinez herself is not
Jewish. But she says she is
every bit as observant as her
Jewish clientele who observe
the Sabbath. Martinez and her
husband Julio, who runs their
other bakery on Miami Beach,
are Seventh-day Adventists.
"Sabbath for the Seventh-
day Adventist is exactly like
for Jewish from sunset Friday
to sunset Saturday. We cook
all our food before sunset Fri-

laws similar to kashrut but
because her clients want high
standards of kashrut.
Martinez was willing to meet
the standards of one of the
strictest kashrut supervisory
agencies, Star K. And she has
done that well.
"Abraham's is strictly
kosher and we're very
satisfied with the way they
follow our guidelines, said
Rabbi Zvi Rosenbaum, who in-
spects about 30 businesses for
About five of the businesses
on his local route are owned by
non-Jews, Rosenbaum says.
"There is no problem what-
soever with a non-Jew owning
a kosher food business so long
as proper supervision of the
production or the food is in-
sured," said Rabbi Yaakov
Sprung, director of the Florida
region for Star K.
''The pastries at
Abraham's," Sprung says,
"are just as kosher as pastries
in a bakery run by an Orthodox
"Let's face it," said Rabbi
David Lehrfield, of Young
Israel of Greater Miami, "most
businesses that have (kosher
supervision) are run by non-
Jews." Heinz products are one
example, says Lehrfield. And
then, he notes, there are non-
Jewish airlines employing non-
Jewish stewardesses who
serve kosher food; restaurants
that serve kosher food that are
not owned by Jews; and many
food manufacturing businesses
that employ kosher labels but
are not owned by Jews.
Rabbi Max Lipschitz, presi-
dent of the North Dade Kosher
Supervisory Board, said about
the only business that usually
requires a Jew always present
is a butcher because he is cut-
ting meat. But many products,
including detergents and
wines that are sanctioned by
kashrut boards are owned by
non-Jews, Lipschitz agrees.
At one point, Lipschitz's
agency supervised a bakery
that non-Jewish owners had
bought from Jewish owners.
"We went there every day and
checked the ingredients. They
didn't bring in anything that
was non-kosher."
Sprung calls Martinez an
"impeccable person," and her
bakery "as kosher as any other
bakery in the world.
"She conforms to a kashrus
organization as accepted and
accepted more so than virtual-
ly any other kashrus organiza-
tion in the world."
Martinez started buying
kosher ingredients for a
bakery she managed.
"Seventh-day Adventists
don't have kashrut but they
don't eat pork. They only eat
food that is specified in the bi-
ble as clean,' she explains.
Then, when she got her own
business, a kosher food inspec-
tor noticed her religious signs
in the window and recognized
the couple from the kosher
bakery they had formerly
managed on Miami Beach.
"He asked to see our licence
and told us we were missing
the kosher licence. He told us
to sign an application for a
kosher license and look for a
rabbi to supervise us. They
came one night and worked
with the bakery to make
everything kosher."
Martinez says she made the
decision to become strictly
kosher, because even though
she was using kosher ingre-
dients, some of her customers
wanted her to have the conti-
nuing strict supervision that
results in certification by a
reputable kashrut agency.
Martinez says she and her
husband became more
religious after living under
Cuba's communist system. In
many ways, the Martinez's ex-
periences in Cuba parallel the
punishment that is faced by
Soviet Jews who try to
emigrate from Russia.
Martinez was born on a farm
but when she was a young girl
her parents sent her to live
with, and work for, a Jewish
couple because they wanted
her to have a better life and
education living in the city.
Martinez eventually married
Julio, who owned a small
grocery store. In 1963, Cuban
dictator Fidel Castro, having
come into power, nationalized
their business. And her hus-
band, who had made about
$1,000 a month in his store,
was allowed to stay on as a
worker earning approximately
$72 a month.
When they applied for im-
migration visas to leave the
country, Julio lost his job. At
one point, he was sent to labor
in the sugar cane fields making
$15 for three months' work.
As the matriarch of the fami-
ly, Martinez used her ingenui-
ty to make ends meet. She
took the small allocation of
meat the family was rationed
and instead of eating it, made
it into croquettes to sell. As a
dressmaker, she also did some
At one point, Martinez says
she was almost arrested for
wondering aloud how her baby
would have food to eat. She
cries when she reflects on
those days. "After that, I was
very religious," she says. She
and Julio do not smoke or
drink coffee or any alcoholic
beverages. They do not dance
or wear jewelry except for
A sister in Miami borrowed
money to finally help pay their
way out of Cuba.
When the Martinez's and
their two children came to
South Florida, they made con-
tact with the Jewish family
who had raised her. They in-
vited the Martinez's to manage
one of their businesses in Puer-
to Rico. But the Martinez's
were told they would have to
work on Saturday, their
"I felt very bad because I
was very thankful to them but
I decided my religion and my
God should come first," Mar-
tinez maintains.
They went to Chicago where
they were told they would
have a better chance of finding
work. Julio worked and his
wife spent every day in a class
learning to speak English.
Three years later, the
Jewish man who had raised
her came to Chicago and asked
them to return to Miami to run
a bakery he opened on Miami
Beach Friedman's. The
Martinez's were told the
bakery would be closed on
Saturday. Eventually the
bakery was sold and the new
owners continued to employ
the Martinez family. But the
day came when the Martinez's
pursued their dream and open-
ed their own business. It was
July of 1974 when they opened
Abraham's bakery in the 7300
block of Collins Avenue.
She remembers that they
were proud, but "filled with
faith that God would help us."
Their store did prosper and
they recently bought the
former Paramount Bakery in
North Miami Beach.
Abraham's II was opened and
Martinez does everything
there from serve up bobka to
the actual baking.
Although Martinez says, "I
enjoy very much what I am do-
ing," she harbors another
"I've always had it in my
heart to make a kosher
residential home for the elder-
ly and that's what I'm trying
to make money for," she says.
Meanwhile, it is getting close
to the Sabbath and customers
are coming in buying their
cakes and challah. Moraima
Martinez is busily working but
she is not worried about her
own Sabbath preparations.
"Everything is ready," she
explains. "Thursday night, my

Israeli Leaders to U.S.
President Chaim Herzog and
Premier Yizhak Shamir of
Israel are both scheduled to ar-
rive in the United States next
month and meet with Presi-
dent Reagan at the White
Herzog's arrival Nov. 10 will
mark the first time an Israeli
head of state has paid a state
visit to Washington.
Herzog, who will be accom-
panied by his wife, Ora, will
meet with Reagan on Nov. 11
and will travel to New York
the following day for meetings
with Jewish leaders. He is
scheduled to conclude his visit
and returns to Israel Nov. 14.
Shamir will meet Reagan at
the White House on Nov. 20,
according to Israeli officials
here. The meeting between the
two leaders will be brief "no
more than 20 minutes" and
will not deal with any major
issues, the officials said.
Reagan is expected to meet
with Shamir again in January
for a "working session," ac-
cording to the officials.
Shamir will begin his U.S.
visit in New York on Nov. 15,
only a day after the Israeli
president will have completed
his state visit. The Israeli
premier will meet in New York
with Jewish leaders and then
fly to Miami to address the
Council of Jewish Federations
General Assembly on Nov. 19.
A number of Israeli Cabinet
ministers, meanwhile, are ex-
pected to arrive in the United
States in the coming weeks,
the Jewish Telegraphic Agen-
cy has learned.
Ariel Sharon, Israel's
minister of commerce and in-
dustry, arrived in Washington
on Monday for talks relating to
trade between the United
States and Israel.
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres will come to New York
for a short visit on Dec. 13.
And three other ministers
are expected to arrive in New
York next month. They are
Health Minister Shoshana
Arbeli-Almoslino, Economic
Coordination Minister Gad
Yaacobi and Welfare Minister
Moshe Katzav.

Soviets Balk At New Peace Proposal
Secretary of State George
Shultz indicated last Friday
that he was unable to get the
Soviet Union to go along with
a new proposal for negotia-
tions between Israel and Jor-
dan under the auspices of the
United States and the Soviet
"We haven't made any par-
ticular progress in the varying
concepts we have about that,'
Shultz said at a press con-
ference in Moscow following
two days of talks with Soviet
Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze and Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev. The
press conference was seen
here as it was held over the
Cable News Network (CNN).
Shultz was apparently refer-
ring to the latest proposal to
have Moscow and Washington
jointly host negotiations bet-
ween Jordan and Israel, as
well as the earlier proposal for
an international conference
which would include the five
permanent members of the
United Nations Security
The Soviets have backed Jor-
dan and other Arab countries
in pressing for the interna-
tional conference. The issue
has divided the government of
national unity in Israel, with
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres and his Labor colleagues
supporting the concept as the
only way to bring Jordan into
the negotiations while Premier
Yitzhak Shamir and Likud are
vehemently opposed because
of a belief the Soviets would
use it to press anti-Israel
During Shultz's visit to the
Middle East en route to
Moscow, Shamir and Peres ap-
parently agreed to allow
Shultz to raise the new concept
with the Soviets.
However, Shultz has never
publicly acknowledged that
there is such a proposal.
Shamir told Israel Army Radio
that it was agreed not to
disclose the plan while the U.S.
official was in the Soviet
The proposal is aimed at
avoiding tie term "interna-
tional conference" since it
calls for direct talks between
Israel and a Jordanian-
Palestinian delegation under
U.S.-Soviet auspices.
But the existence of the pro-
posal became public in Israel
and has already drawn fire
from some members of Likud
and the rightwing Tehiya Par-
ty, which has submitted a non-
confidence motion in the
Shultz's response on the
Mideast process came in an
answer to a question from a
Soviet reporter. The secretary
stressed that the United
States has been a "helpful
partner" in seeking peace in
the Mideast.
He added that in addition to
seeking peace, "We have made
many efforts to improve the
quality of life" for Palestinians
on the West Bank and Gaza.
He said during his recent visit
he discussed what is being
done on this with both Israel
and Jordan.
Meanwhile, the major
obstacle to either an interna-
tional conference or to the new
proposal is the insistence by
both Israel and the United
States that before the Soviet
Union can participate in the
Middle East peace process it
must restore diplomatic rela-
tions with Israel and allow
Soviet Jews to emigrate in
greater numbers.
Shultz indicated that he was
pleased that efforts on human
rights were being developed
"carefully and systematical-
ly." He noted it was a major
issue in his talks with Shevard-
nadze and had been discussed
by a working group of U.S.
and Soviet officials.
The secretary met briefly
last Thursday with about 60
refuseniks; which included per-
sons seeking to immigrate to
Israel or to rejoin spouses in
the United States. Many were
the same people who attended
a Passover seder hosted by
Shultz at the U.S. Embassy
when he was in Moscow last
Richard Shifter, assistant
secretary of state for human
rights and humanitarian af-
fairs, said the Soviets had set
up a commission, promised last
spring, to review the cases of
refuseniks and will announce
decisions within six months.
According to reports from
Moscow, Shifter stressed that
while progress is being made
on Soviet emigration policies,
"we still have a very, very
hard road ahead."
Emigration from the Soviet
Union increased this year to
5,403 by the end of September
and has included some well-
known long-time refuseniks
like Iosif Begun, Ida Nudel and
Vladimir Slepak. But Soviet
Jewry activists in the United
States note there are nearly
400,000 Jews who want to
emigrate and new applicants
are being discouraged by a
strict new law.
Meanwhile, Shultz ended
four-and-a-half hours of talks
with Gorbachev last Friday
without the Soviet leader ac-
cepting President Reagan's in-
vitation to a summit in
Washington this year. The an-
nouncement of a date for the
summit had been widely ex-
pected before Shultz went to
Shultz said Gorbachev told
him he would write a letter to
Reagan, and the disappointed
secretary added, "we'll be
checking the mo" "
If Gorbachev does come to
Washington, thousands of
American Jews and non-Jews
are expected to greet him with
a massive demonstration on
behalf of Soviet Jewry.

'Glasnost' Casts
Ambiguous Shadow
In the welcome reflection of the local visit
this week by Natan Sharansky, we note an
impressive role call:
Ida Nudel
Vladimir and Maria Slepak
Col. Lev Ovsishcher
Leonid and Ekaterina Yusefovitch
Mark and Slava Shifrin
Andrei Lifschitz
Boris and Ludmilla Fridman
Evgeny and Rimma Yakir
Like Sharansky and Nudel before them,
the Slepaks and Ovsishcher have been
released after their long-time tenure as
Prisoners of Conscience. Other refuseniks,
and their families, are expected to follow.
The West will soon welcome among the
ranks of freed Soviet Jews, the Shifrins and
Fridmans and ...
But what of Anna Kholmiansky, wife of
former Prisoner of Conscience Aleksandr
She started a hunger strike last week pro-
testing the ongoing refusal of the USSR to
grant ner family permission to leave.
In the case of the Kholmianskys, refusal is
based on a rule requiring anyone seeking to
emigrate to obtain a statement from his or
her parents that the applicant has no finan-
cial obligations toward them.
"These parents who wish to prevent
emigration of their children may do so by
refusing to issue such a document," Anna
Kholminsky wrote in a letter announcing
her hunger strike.
"No other proofs are accepted and the
authorities wash their hands, claiming the
problem to be purely a family one. Thus, this
ingeniously designed clause allows the
authorities to hold people here for genera-
tions without affecting the image of a new
Soviet liberalism," Kholmiansky asserted.
And, what of the other "Kholmiansky"
While the Soviets have scored the greatest
in a public relations coup with the new policy
of 'glasnost' or openness, we must ask
wherein the Jewish community fits?
Although we note with pleasure and
gratitude that in the first half of 1987, more
than 3,000 refuseniks were allowed to
emigrate, we recall the Soviet commitment
of 11,000 by year's end.
If the Soviets truly respect their own sta-
tion, that as signator to the 1975 Helsinki
Accords, if the Soviets are indeed more sen-
sitive to human rights and the attendant
regard in the West, if expectations of
repatriation of Jews to the homeland have
been encouraged, why still do we note that
only "first-degree" relations will cause an
application to be accepted? How long will
tine "secrecy" clause work against those
who have not been privy to "secrets" for
years beyond counting?
Cultural exchanges, conferences on
humanitarianism, sister-city programs not-
withstanding, we view the high profile
releases with ambivalence.
Surely, we are grateful for the releases of
all the Nudels and Sharanskys and Shifrins.
But we dare not forget all the Kholmian-
sky families.
We are grateful.
But, we are not forgetful.

The Lesson of Judge Bork
With the Senate's dramatic, 58 to 42 rejec-
tion of the nomination of Judge Robert Bork
to the Supreme Court, President Reagan
has been put on notice about his next
Not only must the President's new
nominee to succeed Justice Powell be
scholarly and experienced in the judiciary,
but also must have a demonstrable respect
for First Amendment rights.
Judge Bork failed in the end not because
he was viewed as too conservative, but
because his past record reflected a disdain
for the right of privacy and other individual
The overwhelming margin of his rejection
discredits the far right's claim that "it was
Senate Races
only politics" which caused the Bork
In the end, Judge Bork was the principal
witness against himself. He lost with honor,
however, and the Senate must have an open
mind about Reagan's replacement nominee.
Movement Towards Peace
Even as American Jewry debates whether
or not it can have a voice in Israel's decision
on how to advance the peace process in the
Middle East, the United States appears to
be re-entering the efforts to find a solution.
Secretary of State George Shultz, who has
repeatedly demonstrated that he has no pre-
judice against Israel, has again brought
forth the suggestion of a Soviet American
bilateral participation in place of a total in-
ternational presence.
Shimon Peres totally endorses direct,
face-to-face talks between Israel and her
Arab neighbors as the best means of achiev-
ing peace. But he looks with favor on other
means of reaching the start of such talks.
These were what worked in the Camp
David accords, and the Egyptian peace trea-
ty with Israel has held rather firmly for
eight years now.
But the ongoing violence in Gaza and
Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) cannot
be allowed to continue without every possi-
ble effort to break through.
American efforts to help should not lightly
be thrust aside.
Require American-Jewish Review
With the 1988 elections just
a year away, the major focus
has been on all the candidates
for the Presidency. However,
there are a number of impor-
tant Senate contests which
friends of Israel are already
watching closely.
Mounting budget deficits
and increasing demands to cut
foreign aid programs, make it
essential that the Congress
continue to support the ade-
quate aid levels for Israel and
maintain its opposition to
unrestrained sales of
sophisticated U.S. weapons to
Israel's foes. This means that
the American Jewish com-
munity must maintain a high
level of involvement in next
year's congressional elections,
most particularly the U.S.
Senate. Ttis is because in-
cumbency is such a strong fac-
tor in the House of Represen-
tatives, and because the
Senate traditionally plays a
more significant role in foreign
affairs. Already we are being
called upon to assist a number
of veteran Senate friends as
well as promising challengers
who need our help.

to myself hundreds of times a
day to keep myself rational,
what is my aim, what are my
svstems of values, who are the
KGB, what are their aims and
to repeat this and to repeat
and to repeat."
AS A YOUTH he had been a
chess champion and there
were many times in prison
when he would create chess
games in his mind.
"Especially when you're in
the punishment cell, suffering
from cold and hunger and from
no contact with the world," he
recounts. "Nothing to read or
write and simply to keep think-
ing about something and to
keep being logical you have to
have some exercise, and that
was my exercise.'
The discipline that Sharan-
sky exhibited then is evident
now as he sits in an office in
the Jewish Federation of
Greater Miami office,
where posters calling for his
freedom as well as the freedom
of other Soviet Jews, still hang
on the walls. He is calm and
serious and his blue eyes
reflect that he is living in the
Sharansky was not immune
to the emotions of his ordeal
and he says that is "exactly
why" he is writing a book that
tells about the struggle of
Soviet Jews and his years as
the unofficial spokesman for
human rights in the Soviet
Union. Although books have
been written about Sharansky,
this is the first book he has
authored about his
publishers gave him a large
enough advance on the book to
support his family during its
writing and enable him to
spend the remainder of his
time working for the release of
Soviet Jews.
"It gives me the opportunity
to relieve me of my past," he
says of the book, which is
scheduled for release in May.
"I think it's an important
message, to share this ex-
perience. It's a big relief that
now I've almost finished with
my past and I can work instead
on Russian Jews."
He started working on the
book a little over a year ago
and worked on it every day for
about six hours. He wrote his
way through more than 1,000
pages only to learn that Ran-
dom House would prefer to
keep it to 600 pages. People
don t read long books, Sharan-
sky was told. Tet, they didn't
know where to cut," he adds.
"They said, 'this is good, this is
good,' but that the masses of
people don't read."
While Sharansky may be
stable, his life is oftentimes
"I say many times, but peo-
ple think that I'm joking, that
sometimes I'm missing those
days when I was in prison
because then I had all the time
to concentrate on some impor-
tant things in our lives, some
most important challenges.
And here everyday you have
thousands of things, it's such a
mess, a stream of information.
I don't have time to stop to
think, to analyze and to make
the most important choices.
And that's really something to
which I have to get accustom-
ed and somehow take control
over things."
SHARANSKY says he has
postponed a lucrative offer to
make a big lecture tour in
America. 'It would mean many
months to leave Israel and to
turn Soviet Jewry into
business. I think it's not impor-
tant for the struggle," he says.
Sharansky is living in
Jerusalem with his wife Avital
and their one-year-old
daughter, Rachel, who was
conceived almost immediately
after Sharansky arrived in
His 79-year-old mother Ida
Milgrom, who waged her own
fight against the Soviet
authorities when she learned
her son was not getting proper
medical attention in prison,
was allowed to emigrate to
Israel about six months after
Sharansky arrived and now
lives with her son and
daughter-in-law. At first,
Sharansky reveals, the
Kremlin officials would not
release his mother. "The first
months the Soviets tried to
blackmail me, sending infor-
mation that if I would be
outspoken, if I go to America,
it would have a negative in-
fluence on permission for my
family to leave.
"BUT FROM ALL my ex-
perience, I know the most im-
portant thing is not to
demonstrate that you are
weak or vulnerable to their
blackmail and so I continued to
do what I was doing."
Sharansky's wife had been in
Israel since 1974. They had
known each other for eight
months and decided to get
married. The day after their
marriage, Avital left for
Israel. For the next 12 years
she was separated from her
Sharansky explains why he
encouraged the separation.
"When we met I was already a
refusenik," he says. "I didn't
want her to get refused. And it
was such an optimistic mo-
ment, I insisted she apply
separately. At this time we
tried to register our marriage
officially in Soviet offices and I
was already known as a
troublemaker. They gave her a
visa and didn't let us register
our marriage. Then, at the last
moment, we succeeded to have
a marriage with a rabbi in a
chupah. So on July 4, 1974, we
had chupah and the fifth (of Ju-
ly) she left."
When Sharansky arrived in
Israel he found that his wife
had become religiously obser-
vant. While Avital was
fighting for her husband's
release from the Soviet Union
a fight that Sharansky now
points out was stronger than
Soviet officials would have
predicted she was joined in
her struggle by religious
Zionist movements and was in-
fluenced, he explains, by some
of the greatest Zionist
spiritual leaders.
_ The change his wife made
from knowing little about her
religion as did most Soviet
Jews to becoming tradi-
tional in her observance, is a
change Sharansky says is
working in their marriage
"because we respect one
another. And of course, if she
wants to keep a kosher house I
help her. But as you see, I
don't have a kippah (skull cap)
and so on. We have the same
God and the same belief but
each of us has his own way."
after the years of separation
was not as difficult, Sharansky
observes, because even in
separation a spiritual relation-
ship had been maintained.
"We were in the midst of a
struggle and knew all the time
that we were struggling
together. It helped me to sur-
vive definitely even though for
a year there was no informa-
tion. That's why we've never
had a feeling that (they were)
lost years..

"Of course, we found out
each of us has quite a different
experience and knowledge and
orientations. But if you have
love and respect, it's not dif-
ficult to overcome."
The one thing they had in
common, was they were
among the wave of Soviet
Jews to become Zionists, and
Zionism, Sharansky says,
came before Judaism.
Like many Jews, Sharansky
says he never felt comfortable
in the Soviet system "where
the state decides for you what
you must think, what you must
say, what you must write.
"I felt anti-Semitism from
my childhood. But then, as
many other Soviet Jews, I saw

ly in assimilation.
"And then, when 1967 came,
I think it was a turning point
for Soviet Jewry," Sharansky
says, referring to the Six-Day-
War in Israel. "Suddenly we
realized that there is a state
which is struggling not only
for its own independence but
for our dignity.
somehow changed the at-
mosphere of the Soviet Union
and anti-Semites started
treating Jews with more
respect, maybe some hatred,
but more respect. And so we
started realizing that we have
another fate, we have a choice
in this country, we are not
doomed to live like slaves in
the Soviet Union. So we first
became Zionists and then we
became Jewish. You will see
the first people who were
struggling to leave the Soviet
Union were all ardent Zionists.
And though none of them
knew anything about Hebrew
and the Jewish culture, they
were all going to Israel.
And it is a Jewish instinct
that made the Jew less willing
to accept the Soviet lifestyle,
he contends. "Because Jews,
all the time, even if they're not
political dissidents, try to
display initiative all the time,
whether it's economical or
cultural initiative, but all in-
itiative is punishable in the
Soviet Union.
There was a distinct key. to
his political, if not sheer
physical survival during his
dissident days. First, people
were willing to publicly say,
'no,' they didn't want to live in
the Soviet Union. But that was
not enough, he says.
"From the very first mo-
ment they found strong sup-
port from the world Jewry and
I, being the unofficial
spokesman, knew how impor-
tant all this everyday contact
with the world Jewry was. If
for one moment the KGB
would feel that I was not at the
center of attention, that today
I would disappear for a month
and nobody in the West would
notice it, I would never have
been able to work one day as
the spokesman. We know
many cases when some
unknown dissidents from the
Ukraine, Lithuania ... starts
his activity and he is at a stage
where he is still unknown and
the KGB stops it right away."
And once Sharansky became
involved he was in over his
"When you ride on a tiger,
the more dangerous it is to
stop. If you are already in such
a risky situation the best that
you can do is to continue."
AS A CHILD, Sharansky
got excellent grades in school
and was a chess champion. He
recalls at the time that he did
not have a desire to be a leader
but that he "simply felt myself
uncomfortable with this non-
initiative system and I was
looking for ways to display my
He thought he would grow
up to become a chess champion
or a mathematician or so-
meone in the science field.
"Reading books was my one
passion and exact science,
chess, logic, was the other. If
somebody said that my career
would be through the KGB
prison, I would really be
In prison, Sharansky main-
tained his rights, staging
hunger strikes, including one
that lasted 110 days. He ad-
mits he didn't want to really
die. Then again, he said he
came awfully close to death
"but I simply understood there
was no choice; that I don't
want to come back just to
come back to that life which I
lived before. And to continue
living a free person I'd have to
insist on the right demands.
"I wanted to live but as a
free person," states Sharan-
sky, who was tried on charges
of treason and anti-Soviet
agitation and propaganda. "I
mean, even in prison you can
live as a free person and even
out of prison you can live a
non-free person. I tried to ex-
plain that in my book."
SHARANSKY'S recollec-
tions for that book will not be
based on any notes he had
taken while imprisoned; "all
that you write or are found
writing from time to time is
confiscated," he explains.
He left prison only with his
psalm book, which, on his visit
to Miami this week, he pulled
out of his coat pocket to
display. His wife had sent it to
him from Israel shortly before
his arrest. And even for that,
he had to fight.
"Only after a big struggle
did they let me take it. I laid on
the snow and said I wouldn't
go to the airport unless they
gave it to me."
The airport is where Sharan-
sky was taken by surprise in
February of 1986. Without
telling him where he was go-
ing, Soviet prison officials,
nine years into his 13-year
sentence, walked into his cell
and said, 'Sharansky, you're
going to interrogation.'
Instead, he was taken to a
waiting airplane. He knew
something was amiss when he
noticed the plane had about
100 unfilled seats. Yet, it took
off with only him and four
KGB men aboard.
Two hours had passed and
Sharansky says he knew they
had crossed the Soviet border.
Then, he was told: "I have to
inform you that there is a
special decision by the
Supreme Soviet of the Soviet
Union that for bad behavior
you are deprived of Soviet
Sharansky hardly felt at a
"Of course I was excited,
and afraid to believe it. And so
I said to him. "After 13 years
after I asked you to deprive me
of Soviet citizenship, you final-
ly did it,' and secondly, I used
this opportunity once again to
say that I was not a spy, that
all my activity was in the in-
terest of those Soviet Jews
who wanted to leave."
NOW, Sharansky concludes,
the struggle for "release of
our people is at an important
"On one hand we have a
Soviet leader who knows he
needs to reach as soon as possi-
ble cooperation with the West
on economic, scientific and
arms questions. He
understands the power of the
human rights issue. He
understands he must present a
new image.
"On the other hand, this
leader understands very well
how to speak to the West and
he's succeeded to convince
everybody that he is making
very serious changes in human
rights and the Soviet Jewry
But the reality, says Sharan-
sky, is that while more visible
Soviet refuseniks are finally
being allowed to emigrate
from the Soviet Union, for
unknown Jews to apply is
more difficult than ever.
"What's worse today,"
Sharansky worries, "is Jewish
solidarity is weakened because
too many people believe
(Soviet leader Mikhail) Gor-
bachev. Too many people
believe we shouldn't press on
him." '

about the need to go beyond

cha Freedman of Temple
Adath Yeshurun, Israel Jacobs
of Beth Moshe Congregation,
Leonard Schoolman of Temple

Also present were Frank

regional National Conference
of Christians and Jews.
Bishop Robert Dorsey, and
Rev. John O'Grady, chairman
of religious studies at Barry
began with a Hebrew blessing
over the meal, and concluded
with a benediction given by
Bishop Dorsey.
In between, there was talk
about the time for talk being

O'Laughlin. "I don't want
anymore nice lunches. I like
you guys already, you don't
have to convince me. You're
talking to a little old nun who's
had a Master's degree in
Jewish Studies for six years.
"We have to learn to act,"
she asserted, proposing a joint
Jewish and Catholic strategy
to create an educational pro-
gram "to de-mythicize who we
Rabbi Schiff spoke about the
papal visit, bluntly admitting
that "not everything said in
the Pope's speech was perfect-
ly acceptable. Some things
were not said, some could have
been said differently."
Schiff noted that the Pope's
reference to the Vatican's
"help" to Jews during the
Holocaust (a sensitive issue for
many Jews) and his mention of
the rights of Palestinians
(which Schiff termed inap-
propriate in this setting")
were among those things
which "could have been said
Schiff said that during the
long summer of controversy
over the Pope's visit, "the
Jewish community questioned
the value of dialogue. Some
felt we should discard it, while
others felt the problem was
with the level of dialogue.
They felt we concentrated too
much on being good brothers
and sisters, and not enough on
the gut issues."
tended that "those difficult
days of July and August

Rabbi Solomon Schiff
Monsignor Bryan Walsh
resulted in 25 years of moving
up the calendar" in terms of
Catholic-Jewish relations.
"Otherwise, without the con-
troversy, the visit would have
been ceremonial and nice, but
would not have moved the
dialogue forward," said
"Jewish-Catholic relations in
Miami have implications far
beyond ourselves," he
asserted, "because although
Jews and Catholics are
minorities in most places, in
Miami, we are the community
up to 70 percent of the
population in Dade and
Monroe Counties."
Calling the presence of a
large community of Jews and
Catholics here "a tremendous
responsibility and challenge,"
Walsh spoke of a need to push
beyond "nice luncheons" and
He concluded by saying that
"we must get to specific plans
to extend and build on what
has already been done then
the Miami experience can be a
beacon to the rest of the
There were other calls for
specific plans of action. Rabbi
Baumgard suggested an
outreach program whereby the
Hispanic population, largely
Catholic, and the Jewish
population of Miami could

Calling meetings a chance to
"take minutes and lose
hours," Rabbi Freedman said
that the Jewish community
was "afraid to mention the
word anger."
"Until we have relations
which are not merely formal,
and talk as real people about
real concerns, we'll be as
separate as we've always
been," he added.
Speaking out on real con-
cerns, John O'Grady, who
teaches New Testament at
Barry, admitted that "there is
a perception that Jews talk too
much about the Holocaust, and
the same with Waldheim."
Asked if he knew of a way to
make Catholics more sensitive,
however, O'Grady said that he
"did not know."

comment about ceremonialism

Yet Teitelbaum pointed to
the importance of the con-
ference, even if those who at-
tended felt that bagels and
verbal expressions of friend-
ship were no longer enough.
"It's important not to leave
a vacuum in Jewish-Catholic
relations," he said, because
that kind of break in the
dialogue between the two com-
munities "gets filled with the
most retrogressive reactions."

Senate Races Require Review
Continued from Page 4
Moynihan, a long-time friend
going back to his days as Am-
bassador to the United Na-
tions, is seeking re-election to
his third six-year term. It has
been written about Moynihan
that "when it comes to in-
tellectual sophistication, erudi-
tion and lifelong scholarly out-
put, there has been no one like
Moynihan in the Senate in
modern times." Time and time
again Moynihan has spoken
out eloquently on behalf of
Israel and has been the moving
force behind such initiatives as
calling for moving the
American Embassy in Israel
from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Originally, it was thought that
he would not face a serious re-
election challenge. However,
interest in running has recent-
ly been displayed by Rudolph
Giuliani, U.S. Attorney for the
Southern District of New
York, who has received a great
deal of publicity over the past
year for his prosecution of
Mafia and Wall Street figures.
This race bears closer wat-
ching as American Jews both
in New York and around the
country can be expected to ral-
ly to Moynihan's support.
In Ohio, Howard Metzen-
baum faces a potentially dif-
ficult race should the moderate
Republican mayor of
Cleveland, George Voinovich,
with the Republican nomina-
tion for Metzenbaum'8 seat.
Metzenbaum, who served in
the Senate for a year in 1974
and was then elected in his
own right in 1976, has been in-
timately involved in all issues
affecting Israel. Most recently
he was instrumental in getting
the Administration to agree to
significantly reduce the latest
U.S. arms sale to Saudi
Arabia. Long before he came
to the Senate, Metzenbaum
was a pre-eminent leader in
the Cleveland Jewish com-
munity. With a Voinovich can-
didacy expected to cut into
Metzenbaum's traditional
political base in Cleveland, this
contest could become a cause
for concern and a maximum ef-
fort will be called for on
Metzenbaum's behalf by
friends of Israel.
Another Jewish senator with
impeccable credentials in our
greater community, Frank
Lautenberg, is seeking a se-
cond term in New Jersey.
Lautenberg, former national
chairman of the United Jewish
Appeal, is facing almost a uni-
que challenger Pete
Dawkins. Dawkins' resume is
almost too good to be true
since he can claim to have been
a soldier (general), scholar
(PhD., Rhodes Scholar) and
athlete (Heisman football
trophy winner). Despite hav-
ing never held any elected of-
fice and being a very recent
resident of New Jersey,
Dawkins is mounting a serious
effort to unseat Lautenberg.
Lautenberg, like Metzenbaum
and Moynihan, has been a
down-the-line supporter of all
issues affecting Israel and his
re-election is a high priority.
Not all Jewish Senators
however have been as consis-
tent in their support. Chich
Hecht, conservative
Republican of Nevada, who
will be seeking re-election for
the first time next year, has
been somewhat of a disap-
pointment to the pro-Israel
community, most notably for
having cast the deciding vote
in June of 1986 permitting a
significant missile sale to
Saudi Arabia. His opposition
on the Senate floor to ratifica-
tion of the Genocide Treaty
(which he later did vote for)
and his two votes against per-
mitting Orthodox Jews in the
military to wear skullcaps, was
also criticized in some
quarters. Hecht's re-election
prospects are rated as the
poorest of all incumbent
senators running next year.
He is currently more than 40
percentage points behind
popular Governor Richard
Bryan in a state-wide poll.
Bryan, who will be visiting
Israel shortly and is close to
the Las Vegas Jewish com-
munity, can be expected to be
a firm friend, and an odds-on
favorite to replace Hecht in
the Senate.
One of the closest Senate
races that is shaping up will be
in Minnesota, pitting incum-
bent Republican David
Durenberger, a reliable and
valuable friend, against
"Skip" Humphrey, the son of
the late Hubert Humphrey.
While Humphrey, the state's
attorney general, is expected
to be supportive on issues of
concern, Durenberger, who
was elected in 1978, has
already demonstrated his firm
commitment to maintaining
Israel's security as being in the
best interests of the United
Finally, an opportunity ex-
ists in Rhode Island to elect
the current Lieutenant Gover-
nor, Richard Licht, who will be
opposing incumbent John
Chafee, aless-than-ardent sup-
porter. Licht, whose late uncle
was Governor of Rhode Island,
has been a phenomenon in that
state's politics. He has always
maintained close ties to both
the Rhode Island and national
Jewish committees. Licht's
chances of unseating the
veteran Chafee are excellent,
and his could be one of the
more interesting Senate races
in 1988.
A number of our other good
Senate friends are in good
e}litical shape at this point.
ut if previous experience is a
guide, we could be in for a
number of unpleasant sur-
prises. This means that we
must continue to remain better
informed and hopefully more
involved in the days ahead on
behalf of Israel's supporters in
the Congress.
Israeli TV Strike
Boosts Second Channel
strike by Israel Broadcast
Authority journalists, which
has blacked out radio and
television for eight days has
given an unexpected boost to
the proposed commercial TV
network, known officially as
the second channel.
Although the Knesset is still
debating the legislation
necessary to establish it, per-
mission was granted to a
private television production
company in Jerusalem for live
coverage of the arrival of Ida
Nudel at Ben Gurion Airport
last week.
Special permission was also
granted for a series of "ex-
perimental broadcasts' on the
private channel. They will in-
clude nightly one-hour films,
under arrangements made
with the Cinema Owners
Until now, the Communica-
tions Ministry's engineering
department has been moving
slowly in the direction of a se-
cond channel. During the past
year it has screened still
photograhs for short periods
each evening.
The purpose is to stake for-
mal claim to Channel 22 on the
Ultra High Frequency (UHF)
band to prevent its pre-
emption by Egypt or other
neighboring Arab states. It
has also been broadcasting
reruns of shows from Israel
