U.S. to Resume
Issuing Soviet Visas
WASHINGTON (JTA) The U.S. Embassy in Moscow will
resume processing visas for Jews and other refugees leaving the
USSR, but is requiring most of them to obtain private funding if
they wish to leave before Oct. 1.
State Department figures show that 3,400 Soviet citizens had
begun applying for permission to immigrate to the United States
when the embassy stopped issuing visas July 8. The private
funding requirement will be waived for the 400 refugees in the
most difficult circumstances.
The embassy had announced July 8 that it no longer had
sufficient funds to continue the refugee program, mainly
because of a surge of visa requests from Armenians.
Under a budget agreement with Congress, the State Depart-
ment could not seek any new funds until Oct. 1, the start of the
1989 fiscal year.
But last week, members of Congress wrote President Reagan
protesting the embassy's decision to stop issuing visas. They
argued that the move "sends a terrible signal to those seeking
freedom all over the world and could give the Soviets the
opportunity to claim that it is America, and not the Soviet
Union, that is impeding emigration."
Jewish organizations have also protested the embassy's
To defuse the crisis, the State Department agreed late last
week to transfer $500,000 to Moscow from its $119.5 million
worldwide refugee budget for fiscal year 1988.
The embassy plans immediate processing for 400 Soviets who
are in "emergency" situations: those who have received permis-
sion to leave, sold their homes and left their jobs.
The embassy said it would seek the "timely departure" of an
estimated 3,000 others seeking to leave on U.S. visas, but it
would not specify a timetable.
About 150 Jews have left the Soviet Union on U.S. visas so far
this year. Last year, 84 Soviet Jews left the Soviet Union on U.S.
visas, while 28 left in 1986, Phil Saperia, HIAS assistant
executive vice president, said. HIAS assists virtually all Soviet
Jews entering this country.

considered a supporter of the
close relationship between the

the forefront of these issues.
His leadership role in the
Senate has not been in foreign
affairs, but in economic
matters, especially taxation.
He is chairman of the Senate

by sources as being more

Meese Cleared in Pipeline Deal
Independent counsel James
McKay has cleared outgoing
Attorney General Edwin
Meese of any possible wrong-
doing stemming from his asso-
ciation with purported plans to
bribe the Israeli Labor Party
not to destroy a proposed pipe-
line from Jordan to Iraq.
The findings were contained
in a report on McKay's far-
reaching inquiry into Meese's
activities as attorney general.
A key section of the report
probes whether any of Meese's
activities in connection with
the proposed pipeline were
"rewarded by unlawful grat-
uities" from E. Robert
Wallach, a longtime Jewish
friend from San Francisco.
McKay found that the
attorney general, upon
learning from Wallach about
"a promised covert payment
to the Israeli Labor party, took
no action to terminate United
States government involve-
ment in the Aqaba pipeline
project or even to notify other
United States government
authorities of the possible
existence of an illegal
But the special prosecutor
concluded that "there is no
direct evidence," apart from
memoranda sent by Wallach,
that "a bribe was or would be
offered to any official of the
Israeli Labor Party."
MacKay noted that a memo
sent by Wallach to Meese
suggested that Israel receive
$65 million to $70 million a
year for 10 years at the conclu-
sion of the pipeline's construc-
tion to guarantee security.

nated in 1983, when Bechtel

Smuggling Explosives
Friday, July 29, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 3
BONN (JTA) An Arab
accused of air piracy and
murder admitted in a Frank-
furt court that he smuggled
explosives into West Germany
on two occasions.
But Mohammed Hamadei, a
Lebanese national, claimed he
did not know what the explo-
sives were to be used for when
he brought them into the
country as a favor for
Lebanese friends.
He insisted he is innocent of
any other crime.
Hamadei is wanted by the
United States in connection
with the June 1985 hijacking of
a TWA airliner in Beirut and
the murder of one of its
passengers, U.S. Navy diver
Robert Dean Stethem of
Waldorf, Md.
West Germany did not
comply with an American
extradition request, possibly
out of a fear for the life of a
West German national, Alfred
Cordes, who was kidnapped
and held hostage in Beirut last
year. It was decided to try
Hamadei here instead.
The kidnapping in Beirut
was believed to be the work of
Hezbollah, the extremist
Shiite militia in Lebanon.
Hamadei denied any connec-
tion with Hezbollah.
Hamadei is being tried here
as a juvenile for the time
being, because allegedly, he
was under age at the time of
the hijacking.
But the prosecutor has ques-
tioned the authenticity of
Lebanese documents attesting
to his age. His actual age
remains to be determined.
Hamadei complained in
court that West German inves-
tigators pressured a confes-
sion from him by threatening
extradition to the United
States where he might face the
death penalty.
Rep. Lawrence Smith (D-Fla.)
introduced a resolution in the
House of Representatives to
Rebuilding Beita Homes
HOUSTON (JTA) An American-Israeli fund has been set up
to finance the rebuilding of Arab-owned homes m the West Bank
village of Beita, site of an April clash between Arab villagers and
Jewish settlers that left 16-year-old settler Tirza Porat dead.
The Israeli army blew up fourteen of the village's houses,
although an army report found Porat died from a bullet fired by
a fellow settler and not from Arab stoning, as was initially
Organizers of the Rebuild Beita Fund, including Rabbi Allen
Freehling of Los Angeles, Rev. William Van Etten Casey of
Brighton, Mass., Rabbi Balfour Brickner of New York and
coordinator Abbie Lipshultz of Houston, said their hope is that it
"may be a step toward establishing better Israeli-Palestinian
Literature in Yiddish Translation
AMHERST, Mass. (JTA) A 24-page catalog, which is being
distributed to major university and research libraries by the
National Yiddish Book Center, features over 300 out-of-print
Yiddish translations of world literature.
The items, most of which were translated during the first half Diock the proposed $1.9 billion
of the twentieth century, represent 14 original languages.
Some major Yiddish writers translated many of the titles,
including Isaac Bashevis Singer, who supported himself in
Warsaw in the early 1930's by translating into Yiddish novels
like Thomas Mann's "The Magic Mountain" and Erich Maria
Remarque's "All Quiet on the Western Front."
The Center, which published the catalog with help from a
grant from the Albert A. List Foundation of New York City and
from the Center's 13,000 members, has collected some 750,000
Yiddish books since 1980, when the non-profit organization was
founded by young students and scholars.
Sixth Fleet in Haifa
TEL AVIV (JTA) A five-vessel battle group 7,000

The American unit consists of the 80,000-ton aircraft carrier
Eisenhower, the cruiser Belknap, which is the flagship of the
Sixth Fleet, and three missile-carrying destroyer escorts.
The battle group is under the command of Vice Adm. Kendall
Moranville, commanding officer of the Sixth Fleet.

arms sale to Kuwait. The bill
has 113 co-sponsors.
Smith and other members of
the House Foreign Affairs
Committee were to meet with
Kuwaiti Prime Minister and
Crown Prince Sheik Saad
Abdulla as-Sailim as-Sabah.
Saad met earlier with Presi-
dent Reagan, who pledged
that he would fight for the
package, which includes
40 F/A-18 fighter planes, 300
Maverick "G" missiles, 2,000
Sparrow missiles, 120 Side-
winder missiles, 40 Harpoon
missiles, 400 laser-guided
bombs and 200 cluster bombs.
The sale will go through
unless both houses of Congress
vote to block it by the end of
August. The Senate has not
yet introduced a resolution
against the sale, but it voted to
ban the sale of Maverick "G"
or "D" missiles to Kuwait
through Sept. 30, 1989.
At a news conference, Smith
particularly criticized Saudi
Arabia and Kuwait for
"playing one dominant power
on of another." He cited the
Arms Control and Disarma-
ment Agency's 1987 report
that shows that from 1982 to
1986, Kuwait purchased $230
million in U.S. arms while
purchasing $220 million from
the Soviet Union and $420
million from France.
Over the same period, Saudi
Arabia bought $6.1 billion
from the United States, $6.8
billion from France and $1.2
billion from Great Britain,
Smith quoted the report as

Questionable Truce
Iran's announcement that it accepted a
United Nations resolution calling for tne end
of the eight-year-old Iraq-Iran war does not
signal the immediate end of either fighting or
tension in the Persian Gulf.
Indeed, Iraq's first response was to intensify
its aerial attacks on Iran. And both sides want
the other branded as the aggressor, and each
seeks compensation.
The two adversaries try to outdo one
another in anti-Israeli and anti-Zionist state-
ments and actions. Iran's remaining Jewish
population is in constant danger, and Iraq is
close enough to Israel to be a considerable
danger in the event of future Israeli-Arab
military encounters.
The United States tilted strongly towards
Iran after the Soviet Union offered to provide
protection for Kuwaiti tankers in the Gulf. The
American decision to reflag Kuwaiti tankers
appears to have helped even the odds in the
war between a numerically stronger Iran and
Iraq, equipped with more modern armaments.
It is in Israel's best interests, and probably
also in those of the United States, that neither
side be given additional assistance. Whether
an even-handed stance is possible is yet to be
seen, but should be carefully watched by both
Jerusalem and Washington.
Lehman and Pepper
Veteran Congressmen William Lehman and
Claude Pepper were returned to the House of
Representatives automatically last weekend
when no candidates filed against them.
Under Florida's election laws, neither man
will appear on the ballot in either the primary
and general elections. The voters thus will be
deprived of indicating their pride in the type of
leadership Representatives Lehman and
Pepper have evidenced.
Both men have well established records of
support for items ranging from Soviet Jewry
and tiie State of Israel to mass transportation
and adequate health care for senior citizens.
Lehman's earlier service on the Dade School
Board and Pepper's many years in the United
States Senate made both men formidable
figures in the House from the first day of their
Each of the two victors also is a representa-
tive of the progressive wing of the Democratic
Party on civil rights issues and other matters
of social justice. On the question of foreign
policy, particularly concerning the American
role in Central America, Lehman and Pepper
differ as do their respective constituencies.
On balance, they are able public servants
who fill the model role of representative most

Saluting Romania's Chief Rabbi
NEW YORK (JT4) One of
the most remarkable Jewish
leaders in the entire Diaspora
is Chief Rabbi Moses Rosen of
Romania. Two weeks ago he
observed the jubilee year of his
ordination as rabbi and his
fortieth year as spiritual
leader of the Jewish
community of Romania.
After many years of profes-
sional and personal contacts
with the chief rabbi, I have
only admiration for his
chochma (knowledge and
wisdom) as the religious
teacher and guide of his
Jewish community
But above all, I join thou-
sands of others in saluting
him for his remarkable
courage and tenacity in his
relations with the Communist
government of President
Nicolae Ceausescu and the
Romanian society.
It is not an easy role to be a
devout Orthodox Jew in an
officially atheist country. Nor
is it simple to maintain reason-
ably good relations with a
society that has been saturated
with centuries of anti-
The Romanians knew that
Chief Rabbi Rosen has excel-
lent contacts with Israel and
world Jewish communities,
especially in the United States.
Since Romania was eager to
realize most-favored-nation
staus with the American
government, they periodically
"used" Rabbi Rosen to try to
build good will with American
Jewry, and through them with
the United States.
That, in turn, gave Rabbi
Rosen leverage to demand,
among other things, an end to
anti-Semitic press and other
attacks on Romanian Jews, as
well as his own person.
That he has not only
survived but prevailed in
keeping together a shrinking
Jewish community is in itself a
tribute to his intelligence and
political skills. We wish him
and his gifted wife many more
years of good health and

Justice Department
Appeal is Likely
Friday, July 29, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 5
Mail-Bomb Indictments
The Justice Department is
likely to appeal the U.S.
District Court decision
preventing it from shutting
down the Palestine Liberation
Organization's observer
mission at the United Nations,
Capitol Hill sources said.
One congressional source
said she was "reasonably satis-
fied" that the Justice Depart-
ment wouid be following a line
of appeal, after speaking with
John Bolton, head of the
Justice Department's Civil
Division, and members of his
Bolton met with William
Bradford Reynolds, head of
the Justice Department's Civil
Rights Division and counselor
to Attorney General Edwin
Meese, and Charles Fried, the
U.S. solicitor general.
Sources said the officials
displayed a "general willing-
ness' to fife an appeal,
although they made no final
decision. Fried was asked
whether he objected to an
appeal and he indicated he did
The department now has
until late August to file an
Amy Brown, a spokeswo-
man for the Justice Depart-
ment, declined to comment on
the status of any decision,
except to say that it is not
unusual for those officials to
meet to discuss the issue.
Sources said that the State
Department, which has main-
tained that the PLO mission
falls under U.S. treaty obliga-
tions, opposes an appeal.
As was the case earlier this
year when the administration
had to decide whether to
enforce closing the office by
the March 21 deadline, the
White House is caught in the
In his decision, District
Court Judge Edmund Palmieri
said that no member of
Congress, in approving a 1987
bill mandating that all PLO
offices in the United States be
closed, "explicitly stated that
the Anti-Terrorism Act was
intended to override any inter-
national obligation of the
United States.
Palmieri argued, however,
that when Congress approved
the legislation, there was no
indication it meant to violate
the 1947 UN Headauarters
Agreement, which obligates
the United States "to refrain
from impairing the function"
of the PLO mission.
One source complained that
Palmieri did not discuss the
treaty's reservations clause,
which allows the United States
to control the flow of "aliens"
into this country, which was
invoked in the mid-1980s to
expel about 100 officials from
the Soviet mission at the
United Nations.
A second congressional
source said it was "incredible"
for Palmieri to say that the
intent of Congress was
unclear. He added that it
would be easier to appeal the
decision than to pass a new bill
specifically citing the treaty,
adding that lawmakers consid-
ered that option "insulting."
At the Justice Department's
March 11 news conference,
Charles Cooper, assistant
attorney general in the depart-
ment's Office of Legal
Counsel, said that "Congress
clearly and unambiguously
stated its intent" in the legisla-
tion to close all PLO offices in
the country.

threat against Israel.
Addressing more than 600
Jewish business and communal
leaders at a State of Israel
Bonds luncheon at the Plaza
Hotel here, Rabin said that the
recent purchasing of ground-
to-ground missiles by several
Arab countries, and the use of
these missiles by Iraq to attack
Iranian civilian centers, is only
part of the escalating arms
race in the Middle East.
According to the defense
minister, the Arab countries
have spent between 40 and 60
billion dollars in the last year
l for new arms purchases and
the maintenance of their
Syria's tank force alone,
Rabin disclosed, is three times
that of France, and twice more
than Britain's.
Rabin charged that the
Soviet Union continues to be
the main supplier of arms to
Israel's enemies.
The military threat of the
Arab armies excluding
Egypt against Israel is one
of "three levels of threat to
Israel's security," Rabin
The other two, he said, are
the terrorist threat and the
current uprising in the West
Bank and the Gaza Strip.
Rabin said the continued
violence in the territories is a
war "against the very exist-
ence of Israel, and it is a
danger to its security and well-

Armand Hammer visited for a half-hour with ex-Prime

is one of the few outsiders whom Begin entertains at his

Rabbi Presler To Sunrise Pulpit At the UN:
Rabbi Bernhard Presler will
assume the pulpit of Sunrise
Jewish Center/
Temple Sha'aray Tzedek on
August 1. The Sunrise
temple's new spiritual leader
previously served at Temple
Israel of Miramar
(Florida) and, prior to that,
was the rabbi at the Bellmore
(N.Y.) Jewish Center.
Born in Germany, Presler
emigrated to London in 1939
and, folllowing the war, came
to the United States. He
attended Yeshiva Torah
Vadaath, Yeshiva Chaim
Joseph and the Theological
College of Chicago.
Graduating from New York
City Community College, he
went on to Ohio University
where he completed studies in
civil engineering and was
elected president of the Hillel
Rabbi Presler was ordained
in 1959 and, finding his
greatest joy was in working
with people, he accepted the
chaplaincy at Apple Creek
State Hospital and the role of
spiritual leader in Wooster,
Ohio. While at Wooster, Rabbi
Presler continued his studies
in the Department of Religion
and Psychology and Clinical
Pastoral Training at Cleveland
State College. He directed the
third Wooster Marriage
Conference for clergy and
college students at Wooster
College and lectured on Jewish
Philosophy and Religion.
In July of 1961, Rabbi
Presler accepted his second
pulpit: Temple Israel in
Stroudsburg, PA. Attending
the Teachers College in that
community, he completed all
courses needed for state certi-
fication, which enabled the
Hebrew School courses given
at Temple Israel to earn high
school credits.
Presler was also instru-
mental in the completion of a
new temple in Strouds-
burg and, active in the
community, served on the
board of the Monroe County
Ministerial Association
Committee. After raising
funds for a hospital chapel and
supervising its construction,
Rabbi Bernhard Presler
he initiated thl hospital chap-
laincy program. His other
activities in Stroudsburg
included membership on the
board of the Monroe County
Mental Health Association, in
Rotary, in the Association of
Mental Hospital Chaplains,
and on the Governor's
Lecturing Committee and the
Mayor's Advisory Committee.
In 1965, Rabbi Presler
assumed the Rabbinate at the
Bellmore Jewish Center on
Long Island. Under his leader-
ship the temple grew from 150
to 450 families and underwent
several building and renova-
tion programs. He instituted a
program to teach congregants
how to conduct services and
led a confirmation program for
high school students.
Rabbi Presler founded the
Bellmore Clergy Council and
served as its president for
many years. He was involved
in a clergy dialogue forum with
eighth and ninth grade public
school students, which
included field trips to houses of
worship in the community.
He also served as a founder
and board member of the
Solomon Schechter Day School
of Nassau County and as
secretary of the Long Island
Board of Rabbis.
For eight consecutive years,
Rabbi Presler led a congre-
tional pilgrimage to Israel,
Waldheim Had No Case
Jewish Congress President
Edgar Bronfman said in a
brief statement that Austrian
President Kurt Waldheim
withdrew his slander suit
against him because of a lack
of evidence.
"It is obvious that Waldheim
dropped the suit because he
has no case,"Bronfman said.
Waldheim had initiated a
lawsuit after Bronfman,
speaking at a WJCongress
meeting in Budapest on May 5,
1987, said that Waldheim was
"part and parcel of the Nazi
killing machine."
Bronfman's statement was
in response to the announce-
ment made by a Waldheim
spokesman that the Austrian
president had written the
Vienna public prosecutor's
office listing three reasons for
dropping the suit against
The reasons included what
Waldheim called the U.S.
Justice Department's refusal
to provide legal assistance to
Austrian courts preparing the
case, and his desire "to contri-
bute to calming down and
The third reason, according
to the letter, was the fact that
an international commission of
historians and private under-
takings including a mock-
trial television special broad-
cast on cable television
"have determined my personal
In New York, World Jewish
Congress executive director
Elan Steinberg said that his
organization's findings
continue to "coincide with the
conclusions of the historical
commission, which found that
Waldheim lied consistently
about his past, was unques-
tionably a member of pre-war
Nazi organizations and person-
ally assisted Nazi war crimes."
Waldehim served as an intel-
ligence officer in a unit of the
German army during World
War II that participated in the
transfer oi Greek Jews to
concentration and death
camps, and in the execution of
Allied prisoners, among other
war crune8.
bringing a "Sefer Torah" to
the Israeli Army. In 1984, he
visited the European and
Scandinavian Jewish commu-
nities and spent five months
studying in Jerusalem.
When Rabbi Presler arrived
at Temple Miramar as its spiri-
tual leader, he began a
membership campaign
resulting in over 55 new
members. He started Junior
Congregation Services every
Shabbat morning and the
Rabbi's Rap, a special weekly
dialogue for teens. He has
conducted various adult educa-
tion courses including
"Yiddish Vinkle" through
evening, lunch and learn
sessions and a special one day
Hebrew marathon reading
course, designed to give
students a basis for following
Sabbath services.
Responding to the dream of
the daily daveners, Rabbi
Presler arranged for the
financing, design and imple-
mentation of the renovation of
the Minyan Room at Temple
Rabbi Presler became active
in the Florida community. He
is a member of the South
Broward Board of Rabbis and
the Jewish Federation of
South Broward Rabbis and
Educators Council and serves
as chaplain to the Miramar
Police Department. Working
closely with community and
business leaders, he has been
involved in holiday celebra-
tions, such as public Menorah
lightings, and speaks to
various Jewish organizations
involving them in special
Shabbat services. For the past
two years, he has served on

Israel to be
Arab Target
The Arabs are planning a
major diplomatic offensive
against Israel during the
upcoming 43rd session of the
United Nations General
According to diplomatic
sources here, the Arab coun-
tries and the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization will step up
their anti-Israeli rhetoric
during the three-month
session of the annual conclave,
and will press the world body
to pass harsher resolutions
against Israel in view of the
continued unrest in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip.
Diplomats said that the
number of countries who will
support critical resolutions
against Israel may increase
sharply in the upcoming
assembly, because of the
uprising in the territories that
began Dec. 9.
Israel has been under fire
not only from its arch enemies
but also from traditional
friends such as the European
"It is going to be a very
difficult session for Israel, no
doubt," a member of Israel's
mission to the United Nations
told the Jewish Telegraphic
"We are aware of the fact
that the European countries
are critical of Israel's policies
in the territories, and this is
going to be reflected in their
public speeches and probably
in their pattern of voting on
resolutions criticizing or
deploring Israel," the diplomat
The General Assembly is
scheduled to open here on
Sept. 20. Thousands of diplo-
mats and high-ranking offi-
cials, including scores of
heads-of-state and premiers
from all over the world, will
attend the meetings at the
glass palace on the west bank
of Manhattan's East River.
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres is expected to head the
Israeli delegation, which will
include in addition to the
five permanent members of
the Israeli mission to the
United Nations eight addi-
tional delegates for the dura-
tion of the assembly.
Ambassador Yohanan Bein
is the acting chief delegate of
Israel, a post he assumed
following the resignation
March 30 of Ambassador
Benjamin Netanyahu, who is
now a candidate on the Likud
list for the next Knesset.
The diplomatic sources
predicted that the distur-
bances in the territories will
intensify with the opening of
the General Assembly session
in New York.
"The PLO knows the impor-
tance of keeping the issue of
the unrest in the territories on
the mind of the international
community, and there is
nothing better to achieve this
goal than increasing the
violence in the territories
while the leaders of the world
are gathered at the UN to
discuss the world's problems,"
one of the sources said.
Although resolutions
adopted by the General
Assembly are not enforceable,
the broader support that anti-
Israeli resolutions may gain
this year can further harm
Israel's standing in the inter-
national community, the
sources asserted.

Conference For Hospital,
Health-Care Execs
Friday, July 29, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 7

Steve Rose, director of
development at the Miami
Jewish Home and Hospital
for the Aged at Douglas
Gardens (MJHHA), has been
appointed chairman of the
1989 Regional Education
Conference of the National
Association for Hospital
Development (NAHD). The
conference is scheduled for
June 25-28, 1989 at the
Sonesta Beach Hotel.
NAHD represents more
than 2,000 hospitals and
health care executives whose
primary emphasis is on the
development of financial
resources for non-profit,
charitable organizations.
The three day conference
will cover fundraising, plan-
ning, communications, tax
benefits, cause-related
marketing, special events
and management. Continuing
education units will be
awarded to all NAHD
members attending.
Assisting Rose on the
conference committee are
members from all seven
states in the region,
including South Florida
representatives Betty
Brennan of Villa Maria
Nursing Center, Miami; Don
concerts of cantorial music
and Yiddish song which
took place here recently
appear to have sparked a
smoldering flame in the
heart of the Jewish people
of Hungary. The concerts
were organized by the New
York-based Emanuel Foun-
dation for Hungarian
Culture, which was formed
two years ago to restore
Jewish life in Hungary.
Transplant Centers
Continued from Page 1

first and only hospital in Israel
licensed to perform the deli-
cate surgery, will no longer do
Rambam Hospital shut down
its facility earlier this year
when the head of its liver-
transplant center, American-
trained Dr. Yigal Kam,
returned to the United States.
Kam, regarded as one of the
world's leading liver-
transplant surgeons, will open
a transplant center in Denver,
Colorado. It was on the
strength of his reputation that
Rambam Hospital received its
original certification.
The hospital's license has
been stamped "frozen"
pending the return of Kam,
who has officially taken a
year's leave without pay.
Kam had complained of a
lack of cooperation from other
Israeli hospitals and of the
shortage of organ donors, in
part due to religious beliefs.
Hadassah and Beilinson
hospitals have promised to
cooperate in their liver-
transplant endeavors. A
computer center is being set
up at Beilinson to register
donors and match their tissues
with potential recipients. It
will be linked to the Hadassah
transplant center.

In 1985, Bentsen was one of
a group of senators who unsuc-
cessfully urged President
Reagan not to visit the mili-
tary cemetery in Bitburg,
West Germany, where
members of the Waffen SS are
among those buried.
Perhaps Bentsen's most
controversial vote, as far as
the Jewish community is
concerned, came in June 1986,
when he voted to uphold
Reagan's veto of a joint
congressional resolution
rejecting a weapons sale to the
The Senate failed to override
the veto by one vote, and the
sale went ahead. Bentsen was
the only Democrat to switch
his vote.
In 1984, he opposed the sale
of Stinger missiles to Jordan
and Saudi Arabia, and in 1985,
he co-sponsored the resolution
to deny advanced weapons to
Jordan until it begins peace
negotiations with Israel.
But in 1987, he was not one
of the 68 senators who signed
a letter opposing the sale of
1,600 Maverick missiles to the
Saudis, which eventually
caused Reagan to remove the
missile from the arms

among the 21 senators who

Old City to Get
New City Hall
new $65 million city hall will be
constructed in Jerusalem,
uniting under one roof all the
departments of the munici-
pality, which are now
dispersed around the city.
Part of the project's funding
will be provided by the Reich-
mann family of Toronto,
billionaire financiers who are
the developers of the Battery
Park project in Manhattan.
Two members of the Reich-
mann family, Albert and
Edward, joined President
Chaim Herzog and Mayor
Teddy Kollek in laying the
foundation stone for the new
city hall, the Reichmanns' first
major undertaking in Israel.
The new municipal building,
together with another major
venture being financed by a
Diaspora Jew the recently
announced Mamilla Project, to

preserving the British-built
main offices of the munici-
pality and the facades of other
architecturally valuable build-
ings in the area.
Ron International Ltd., a
Reichmann-owned subsidiary,
will undertake construction
and will loan the city $30

B'rith, observed that Bentsen
has been a strong supporter of
Israel and has had good rela-
tions with the Jewish
community in Texas.
He said the senator stressed
in a recent letter to consti-
tuents that by supporting
Israel, the United States
"advances the cause of peace
in the Middle East."
Brody said Bentsen also has
emphasized the need to take
strong measures against
terrorism. And the senator has
pushed for an energy policy to
lessen dependence on Middle
East oil.
In presenting Bentsen,
Dukakis noted the parallel to
1960, when the Democratic
ticket also contained a presi-
dential candidate from Massa-
chusetts, John Kennedy, and a
vice presidential candidate
from Texas, Lyndon Johnson.
Bentsen was first elected tx
the Senate in 1970, when h
defeated his Republican oppo
nent, George Bush, who will bt
the GOP presidential candi
date this year.
A native of Texas, Bentsen
enlisted in the army as a
private during World War II
and rose to the rank of major.

Jewish Agency official
defended Israel's new policy
with respect to Jews leaving
the Soviet Union, but said he
did not believe it would solve
the dropout problem.
Uri Gordon, head of the
agency's immigration and
absorption department, said
Soviet Jews do not know
Soviet Dropouts Could Continue
enough about Israel or
Judaism, and cannot learn as
long as there are no diplomatic
ties between Jerusalem and
According to Jewish Agency
sources, during the first three
months of this year, every Jew
who emigrated from the city of
Kharkov with an Israeli visa
went to the United States.
The dropout rate from Kiev,
Odessa and Minsk was 95
percent, and agency officials
told reporters they doubted
the situation would improve in
the near future.
Gordon said he approved of
the Cabinet's decision which
stated that Israel would issue
Israeli visas only to those Jews
committed to settling in Israel
when they leave the USSR.
To ensure that policy, Soviet
Jews will have to pick up their
visas at the Israeli Embassy in
Bucharest, Romania, from
where they will be flown
directly to Tel Aviv.
The policy is aimed at
reducing the dropout phenom-
enon Jews wno leave the
Soviet Union with Israeli visas
but settle in Western coun-
tries, chiefly the United
Gordon urged Israelis to
write letters to Soviet Jews
describing life in Israel, so that
the potential emigres will not
think only in terms of settling
in the United States.
He also said efforts should
be made to take advantage of
the more liberal policies of
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorba-
chev to teach Soviet Jews
more about their heritage.
