Israeli leaders expressed
uncertainty about the true
intentions of Jordan's King
Hussein toward Palestinians in
the West Bank.
Hussein appeared on televi-
sion to announce, in a land-
mark speech, that he was
cutting legal and administra-
tive ties with the West Bank in
order to clear the way for an
independent Palestinian state
under the Palestine Liberation
Jordan recently dropped
its five-year economic assis-
tance plan to the West Bank
and dissolved the lower house
of Parliament, half of whose
members are from the terri-
Rumors were spreading here
that Hussein is determined to
go ahead and adopt further,
more drastic measures against
the residents of the West
According to those rumors,
the Jordanian government
would no longer issue pass-
ports to the residents of the
territories, would end
economic aid to a number of
public institutions and would
abolish some $70 million in
salaries paid annually to
20,000 civil servants in the
West Bank.
But despite the rumors,
there was no clear indication
whether Hussein intended to
take further measures to
implement his decision to cut
ties to the West Bank.
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir told Israel Television
that Hussein has been disen-
gaged from the West Bank for
quite some time. Therefore,
his move would not affect
political developments in the
region, Shamir suggested.
Shamir said the Jordanian

Israeli Delegation in Moscow
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel's
five-member consular delega-
tion to Moscow spent its first
weekend in the Soviet capital
by attending services at
Moscow's main Choral Syna-
The delegation is the first of
Israeli diplomats to visit the
Soviet Union since the Soviets
severed ties with Israel in the
wake of the Six-Day War.
Crowds at the synagogue
were smaller than had been
anticipated. Some 60 Jews
were reported to have
attended Friday evening's
services and about 150 local
Jews and tourists attended
Saturday morning.
The Israeli's arrival has been
covered in the Soviet media by
one-line references, if at all.
Someof theworshippersFriday
night were said to have heard
of the planned synagogue visit
on foreign shortwave radio
In conversations with the
Israelis, many Soviet Jews,
including some refuseniks,
reportedly expressed disap-
pointment at changes in Israeli
policy designed to force those
emigrating on Israeli visas to
go directly to Israel. In recent
months, more than 90 percent
have gone instead to the
United States and other
Western countries.
The Israeli delegation
arrived at Moscow's Shere-
metyevo Airport. They were
met by two diplomats from the
Dutch Embassy, but not by
Soviet officials.
The delegation begins its
official duties in Moscow when
its members will present them-
selves to Soviet officials of the

State Department Specialist:.
Hypothesis on Peace Process
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
U.S. Secretary of State
George Shultz's Mideast peace
initiative has suffered from jet
lag, summer doldrums, and
has apparently awaited the
upcoming national elections
here and in Israel.
But the plan is far from
dead, if Irwin Pernick, a
special assistant and career
diplomat for 25 years in the
State Department is any
gauge. During a brief trip to
South Florida recently,
Pernick admitted that his main
topic is the Shultz peace plan
and that he is "objectively"
pushing it.
Israel's $3 billion in U.S.
military and economic aid is
"pretty sacrosanct," Pernick
told The Jewish Floridian
during a special interview
But, he added, Israel's
"requirements are clearly
going to be greater. They are
talking about embarking on
various (military) moderniza-
tion programs."
Pernick, a special assistant
to U.S. Under-Secretary for
Security Assistance, Science
and Technology, Edward J.
Derwinski deflects a question
about whether the U.S. would
increase Israeli military aid
($1.8 billion annually) which
he says should properly be
called "security assistance"
saying. "We know they would
like more than $1.8 billion in
security assistance after fiscal
year 1989. But they (Israel)
also have a keen appreciation
of our political process and our
budgetary problem."
IN other, simpler terms,
Pernick diplomatically says
the U.S. has another method
of securing Middle East
borders besides boosting the
military ante.
"We've come down to one
solution shalom," Pernick
says, using the Hebrew word
for peace and sounding a little
like George Shultz's echo. "It's
time for all nations of the area
to sit down and start negotiat-
The peace plan itself doesn't
need to be revised, Pernick
believes, although he admits it
needs "rescusitation." With
upcoming elections, Israeli
officials do not want to make a
decision that will hurt them
politically, Pernick asserts.
"There is no way to
encourage the Arabs to go to
the bargaining table without
some indication from Israel
that it is prepared to discuss
the land position," Pernick

(WZPS) According to
legend, the Jewish people
were given a land where goats
and sheep would graze under
the fig trees. The milk flowing
from the animals would mix
with the fruit honey dripping
from the trees
fulfilling God's promise of "a
land of milk and honey."
Popular Demand
Today, in modern Israeli
supermarkets, one can find a
variety of yogurts and cheeses

many of these parents are
substituting goats' milk in
their children's diet.
A New Life
Raising goats was not
Gilad's original plan when he
first dreamed of settling in
Israel a dream partially
inspired by his grandmother,
Miriam Freund, a former
national president of
Hadassah. Gilad felt that if he
were to study hotel manage-
ment he would be able to
contribute to Israel's growing
Goading a New Industry
made from the milk of goats
and sheep a reminder of the
ancient legend. They are espe-
cially popular among the Jews
from North African and Asian
countries where cow's milk
was not readily available and
alternatives had to be found.
Yet, until recently, pasteur-
ized goats' milk was unavail-
able in Israel, until Gilad
Freund, a young American
Jewish immigrant started the
country's first goats' milk
industry. According to
Freund, 34, much of the
demand for pasteurized goats'
milk comes from parents
whose children have an allergy
to cow's milk an ailment not
uncommon among ethnic
groups of African and Asian
origin. The intensity or cause
of this allergy can vary with
the individual, but with the
approval of their pediatricians,
tourist industry. And so he
began to take courses in hotel
management at the City
University of New York.
When, in 1980, he arrived in
Israel, he began to work as
sous-chef at the Moriah Hotel
in Jerusalem, and shortly
after, got married. It was the
beginning of a new decade and
the start of a new life for
Gilad, and he made a momen-
tous decision. Not really satis-
fied with the hotel business, he
decided to help build Israel in a
different way. He and his
American-born wife Geri
joined a small nucleus of young
families that were building a
new settlement in the Jeru-
salem hills, at the edge of the
Judean desert. The settlement
was near the site of the ancient
Jewish village of Tekoa, the
home of the prophet Amos,
and the young pioneers gave
their new village the same
The first year, Gilad and
Geri supported themselves by
raising flowers, which they
sold to urban residents in Jeru-
salem. Then the settlement
received a visit from Avraham
Ratner, an official of the
Ministry of Agriculture and
veteran of the famous 1948
battle of Gush Etzion, the
group of settlements that
protected the southern
entrance to Jerusalem. Tekoa
was at the eastern border of
the Gush Etzion region, and
Avraham Ratner had a special
vision for Tekoa and all the
settlements in the area. He
wanted to restore sheep herds
to the rebuilt settlements of
Judea, the area in which the
prophet Amos tended his
sheep and goats. While the
ancient Jews also had herds of
cattle, these were usually
found in the richer pasture
land of the northern areas of
Israel. Judea was a semi-arid
region on the edge of the
desert, an area that was best
suited for goats and sheeps.
A New Business
Avraham Ratner, a sheep
herdsman himself when not
working at the Ministry of
Agriculture, offered his advice
and expertise to the new
settlers. Gilad was among the
first to take up the challenge.
However it wasn't long before
Gilad realized that goats would
be a more profitable enterprise
than sheep, since there was no
one in Israel producing

WASHINGTON (JTA) David Zwiebel, director of
government affairs and general counsel for Agudath Israel

But official British and
Israeli circles here refused to
comment on a report in the
London Telegraph that the five
Mossad agents were connected
to Ismail Sawan, 28, a Pales-
tinian who confessed to being
a spy for Israel.
In June, Britain expelled a
member of the Israeli
Embassy staff, Arye Regev, in
connection with the Sawan
case. The British alleged
Regev was a Mossad opera-
Sawan was convicted and
sentenced for storing weapons
for Abdul Rahmim Mustapha,
a member of the Palestine
Liberation Organization's elite
Force 17 and bodyguard of
PLO chief Yasir Arafat.
Mustapha was wanted by the
British authorities in connec-
tion with the murder here last
year of Ali Adhami, an Arab
cartoonist. Sawan testified in
court that he had kept the
Mossad informed of
Mustapha's movements.
The British were furious
with the Israelis for not
sharing the information they
were getting from Sawan.
Their anger prompted Regev's
expulsion a move that
enraged Israeli officials but
provoked no corresponding
diplomatic response.

pasteurized goats' milk.
Avraham encouraged Gilad to
give it a try, and the new
business was bom.
In 1985, Gilad bought three
goats. Soon after, he made his
first delivery to Jerusalem
eight bags of milk. This year
Gilad has 150 goats and
delivers eight hundred bags of
milk to Jerusalem, twice
weekly, as well as containers
of goats' cheese and yogurt, all
under rabbinical supervision.
According to Gilad, it's
quality control that became
the key to his success. "We are
responsible for everything,
from start to finish: from the
nutrition-rich food given to the
goats to immediate delivery to
the stores. For this reason our
dairy products do not have the
funny taste that many people
associate with goats' milk."
In Tekoa, Jewish children
tend to the goats and sheep,
and Gilad's son, Matanya, is
among the young shepherds.
"Matanya" means "a gift from
God" and the very first gift
that God promised the Jewish
people in Egypt was to bring
them up to a good land, "a land
flowing with milk and honey."
To the slaves in Egypt this
gift meant more than just
economic prosperity. It meant
the opportunity to work for
themse ves, in the land of their
forefathers, in the fields and
under the skies of their own
homeland. With much faith
and hard work, Gilad, Geri and
Matanya are helping that
dream become a modern

Kibbutzniks Pig-Out
Pigs in Israel lead a dog's
life, for at best they are only
tolerated, and even then
within very strict limits. One
cannot, or at least one should
not, import them, breed them,
sell them or eat them, but
there are still a few of them
snorting around, either in
Christian areas, or in zoos or,
more surprisingly, as pets
and thereby hangs a tail (albeit
a short and curly one).
While urban children in
Israel have to make do with
gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters
or white mice, children on
kibbutz usually do rather
better and have private mena-
geries. At Kibbutz Har Masa
in the Negev, the menagerie
included but, as you will
hear, no longer includes a
stout porker called Arthur.
One thing to be said for pigs
as pets is that they don't have
to be exercised and are not too
fussy about their food. Arthur
genial, uncomplaining and
cuddly became the darling
of the members, young and
old, and was almost the
kibbutz mascot, and something
of a tourist attraction. But, as
so often happens, he soon tired
of kibbutz life he may have
found it too egalitarian for his
tastes, or perhaps, as the only
pig around, he was lonely.
Whatever the cause, he fled to
a nearby forest.
Now while forests elsewhere
are dark, mysterious places
full of hazards, Israeli forests
are full of plaques and ring
with the happy voices of tree-
planters cheerfully planting
Arthur's experience,
however, was less than
cheerful. He encounted a party
from Kibbutz Livna who
looked at him, looked at each
other, looked around them,
and before you could say oink,
he was no more.
Meanwhile back at Har Masa
there was consternation and
grief. The young were incon-
solable and would not eat their
muesli or go to school. The old
abandoned their bridge games
and mourned for their portly
friend. All work stopped while

A special exhibition of Edna
Hibel paintings and litho-
graphs, on loan from the Hibel
Museum of Art in Palm Beach,
will remain at the Dubrovnik
(Yugoslavia) Museum through
August 25, coinciding with the
duration of the Dubrovnik
The exhibition entitled
"Peace Through Wisdom -
the Yugoslavs translate it as
"Peace Through Under-
standing" was extended seven
weeks following large attend-
ance at its June 13th grand
opening in Dubrovnik.
Ivo Dabelic, director of the
Dubrovnik museum, said of
the opening: "I don't think
we've ever had anything like it
in hundreds of years." Dabelic
noted that "we knew from
catalogs that Hibel's artwork
was beautiful and adored by
many people but when we saw
the actual pieces all together,
they were exquisite."
Hundreds of people are
visiting the exhibition daily,
says Slavo Pavicevic, execu-
tive director of Dubrovnik's
Tourist Board, and "the
comments book in the main
exhibition hall is crammed full
of glowing remarks in many
languages ."
The daily newspapers in
Dubrovnik, Split and Zagreb
have hailed Hibel as
"America's premier woman
artist" and "the first lady of
art in America."
Andy Plotkin, the executive
trustee of the Hibel Museum of
Art, states that Hibel's works
in the media of painting, litho-
graphy, bronze sculpture, and
crystal and porcelain art are
known throughout the United
States and dozens of countries
where they have been exhib-
ited but, he adds, "considering
that Dubrovnik and maybe
all of Yugoslavia as far as I
know has never before
invited the art of a foreign
woman or of any American to
be shown there, the public
reception is particularly
surprising and gratifying.
Edna Hibel's work has been
shown on four continents, with
most of the traveling exhibi-
tions organized from the
permanent collection of more
than 400 Hibel artworks in the
Hibel Museum of Art, the only
non-profit, public museum in
the Western hemisphere dedi-
cated to the art of a living
woman. The museum is pres-
ently planning for a second
exhibition in the China
National Art Gallery in Beijing
and Shanghai in the fall of
Ni Yaoli, the Chinese Consul
General to the U.S.A., says a
second Hibel exhibition in
China is "an honor never
before accorded any foreign
artist." Millions of people, he
said, saw the first exhibition in
China in 1986 and more will
see it in 1989. "Edna Hibel is
now the most popular foreign
artist in the People's Republic
of China," explains Ni Yaoli.
"Few other contemporary
artists have affected our
people so deeply."
Future Hibel Museum exhib-
itions are tentatively sched-
uled for Helsinki, Finland
(1990) and Rotterdam, The
Netherlands (1991). Closer to
home, a 1989 exhibition is
being planned for a Wash-
ington, DC. museum.
Museum trustee Plotkin
describes Hibel's work as
"subjective impressionism."
Apparently best known for her
portrayals of mothers and chil-
dren, the artist also does
landscapes, farmers, florals,
animals and still lifes. She uses
many techniques, including oil
and glazes, gold leaf, charcoal,
silk, fresco, wood gesso panels,
cameo pagel and Philippine
Hibel has received tributes
and awards from numerous
government officials, heads of
state and religious leaders,
including the U.S. Congress,
the UN, Queen Elizabeth II
and Pope John Paul II. This
year, she received honorary
doctorate degrees from the
University for Peace in Costa
Rica and from Mount Saint
Mary's College in Emmits-
burg, Maryland.

smell like an Atlantic City boarding house
after a Sunday morning fry-in."

searched every sand dune and
wadi in the Negev for some
sign of their beloved pet.
Mantras were offered up for
his safety and rewards were
promised for his return but no
trace was found. But towards
dusk one day a cloud rose up in
the east and the entire Negev
began to smell like an Atlantic
City boarding house after a
Sunday morning fry-in; for
while they were gnashing their
teeth in Har Masa, they were
noshing on Arthur in Livna.
Word of the feast soon
read to Har Masa. They
descended on Livna in a solid
mass and there in the dining
room was Arthur with his head
on a platter and an apple in his
mouth. The tables were laden
with pork chops, pork pies,
spare ribs, chopped liver,
sweet-breads, kidneys, trot-
ters and hams. It was like a
medieval banquet with young
and old digging in, from each
according to his ability, to each
according to his needs.
Thus caught red-handed, or
rather greasy-mouthed, Livna
insisted that Arthur had fallen
off the back of a lorry, that
they had won him at a raffle at
a Beersheba ball, that they had
received him from Oxfam, that
he had arrived in a hamper
from Harrods, that he had
strayed into their microwave,
that in any case he wasn't a pig
but a rare variety of hairless
sheep, and that if Har Masa
didn t want their wretched
beasts to be eaten they should
keep a better eye on them.
And having thus made their
denial, they went on to
swallow the evidence.
Altercations followed.
Angry words were uttered,
angry letters exchanged. The
matter was taken to the
highest councils of the kibbutz
movement and finally Livna
came clean, admitted that they
had done the dirty on Arthur
and promised Har Masa
another pig in lieu of Arthur,
or cash in lieu of another pig.
They have not replaced
Arthur in Har Masa; but they

Synagogue Mobilization
Elul the last month of the Jewish calendar
year has been declared Synagogue Mobiliza-
tion Month.
The synagogue the central address of
Jewish life since the destruction of the
Second Temple in 70 C.E. plays a triple role: it
is the house of study, of community, of prayer.
In that multiplicity of functions, the syna-
gogue or temple supports the most central
needs of its congregants.
The synagogue as a core partner in a
family's Jewish observances mandates that
children will be educated, that simchas will be
celebrated as rites of passage with the
attendant ceremonies, that personal tragedies
will not be handled in a solitary fashion
without necessary support.
And it guarantees that the community itself
will be enriched by a congregation's social
action efforts.
It is not enough to rent-a-rabbi at only
propitious moments as if a pinch-hitter would
suffice in the realm of the religious. It is not
sufficient to rely on "mushroom" synagogues,
those temporary facilities that sprout in the
summer rains of late August and early
September. They do nothing to sustain the
growth and/or strength of the community.
In order for synagogues to be viable and to
be there when there is the immediate need,
they need to be supported year-round.
On the practical level, salaries must be paid,
facilities must be maintained, curricula must
be planned. Those needs can be satisfied only
with a strong membership base.
On the community level, synagogues are
living and creative entities. They figuratively
breathe life into a community. They support
and help define an area's commitment to what
is good and what needs to be better.
It is a moral obligation to support what, in
turn, supports the community.
Anglican Confrontation
On July 17, some 600 bishops
from across the globe began a
month-long conference of the
World Anglican Communion,
at Lambeth Palace in London.
Representing some 70
million Anglicans, the
Lambeth Conference will natu-
rally concentrate on internal
religious and moral questions.
As a prestigious world
church, it will inevitably
confront major political prob-
lems as well, notably the
Middle East conflict.
It is apparent that both pro-
Israel and pro-Palestinian
forces will be contending at
Lambeth for the support of
world Anglicanism.
It will not be an easy
I have seen a statement

Hypothesis on Peace
Continued from Pafe 1
IF Israel were to consider
negotiating its land a
majority of which it claims is
important to maintain for
internal security Pernick
was asked what role the U.S.
would take in protecting
"When I began working the
securities systems area in
1971, Israel was lumped as
friends of the U.S." Pernick
responds. "Now it is an ally, a
major non-Nato ally. The U.S.
is committed to Israel."
Pernick also defends the
segment of the Shultz peace
plan that calls for nations that
are unwilling to recognize
Israel to participate.
"A lot of people have shot
down the conference saying
'Who wants the Soviet Union,
who wants China telling us
what to do?' They're either
inadvertantly or purposefully
misreading the proposal. The
proposal for the conference
would be merely for the
parties to all these negotia-
tions to have the sense that
they have the backing of the
UN Security Council perma-
nent members and the other
parties in the region. The
conference would not have any
veto power, not would it be
able to mandate anything. It
would only be set up for the
purpose of giving the negotia-
tions a boost saying, the
world supports you, now go to
THE Shultz proposals are
"not moribund, Pernick
argues. Its first stage calls for
indiviual negotiations between
Israel and each of its neighbors

ions and transition period.
The Shultz plan has "not
been turned down flat,"
Pernick asserts. "Just about
everybody Israelis, Syrians,
Egyptians have encouraged
Shultz to keep going. Nobody
wants to be the first to say, 'I
accept the whole package.' "
The U.S. is sending signals
to mideast nations through its
foreign aid allocations. Israel
continues to receive the
largest chunck of U.S. foreign
aid. Egypt received $1.3 billion
in military aid and $800 million
in economomic aid.
"I personally think they're
linked because the amounts
are so large in regards to the
rest of the program, that if
there were not another
country receiving almost as
much aid as Israel then the
Israeli amount would be an
easy target for decrease. Addi-
tionally, and perhaps more
importantly, the amounts are
sustained at a high level to
both countries to demonstrate
to other countries in the region
that it would be worth their
while to follow Egypt's path
with respect to relations with
On the other hand, Pernick
says, other nations in the
region, particularly Jordan,
are making it clear that they
are not satisfied with the U.S.
foreign aid allocations.
THESE nations are turning
to less U.S./Israel-friendly
countries for aid and military
sales. The introduction of
chemical weapons into the
Middle East, specifically by
Iraq in the Persian Gulf War
and the sale of Chinese
silkworm missiles to Iran,
makes the area more volatile
than ever. The U.S. "can't
block" the sale of Chinese
missile systems to the Saudis,
Pernick says.
"The means the borders are
not as sacrosanct and safe as
they used to be and that the
next regional war will really
introduce a fundamental
change in the area. Who
knows what that means? If you
think about the possible impli-
cations, you realize it's not
going to be a six-day war."
Still, none of the Middle
East nations are making the
first move. Meanwhile, the
military escalation is
compounded by demographics:
Palestinians are increasing
between two and three percent
a year and Egypt will have 100
million people by the end of the
century, Pernick says. In addi-
tion, Israeli inflation is begin-
ning to escalate and
purchasing power in Gaza and
the West Bank has decreased
since the uprisiing.
"From the State Depart-
ment's position, everybody has
to wake up and realize time is
running out," Pernick says.
Personal Perspectives
State Department diplomat
Irwin Pernick said shedom or
peace, is needed in the Middle
East. But how realistic is that
"If you're perpetually pessi-
mistic, no" he answers. The
State Department's position,
however, is to "keep urging
everybody and show now
things are changing (and get)
sensible-minded people and
leaders (to) realize it's the only
sane course."
Pernick admits the situation
is extremely frightening.
Israeli Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir is a tough
negotiator, Pernick explained.
Shamir has encouraged the
peace plan proposal that has
been part of Secretary of State
George Shultz's shuttle diplo-
macy, yet Shamir has not said
he accepts the plan.
Until Israel shows a greater
unanimity in its desire to work
with the Shultz plan "the other
nations politically would be
nuts to say, 'We accept,' "
Pernick assesses.
But he stops short of saying
that any particular nation is
holding up the peace process.
"Everyone has to do it at the
same time." Israelis, Egyp-
tians and Syrians "just
about everybody have
encouraged Shultz to keep
going," according to Pernick.
Still, the career diplomat
declines to predict an outcome.
"I'm not predicting anything,"
he says. "I'm predicting the
Mets will win the World Series
I hope."
On the issue of "land for
peace" Pernick says the
nations that make a concession
will "certainly" have guaran-
tees. But when asked if land
will bring peace, he says:
"Attitude will bring peace.'

Lost and Found:
The Jews of Burma
A "lost tribe" of 52
Burmese Jews has been
discovered living in a remote
jungle outpost of Burma, some
450 miles from the capital of
The first clue to their exist-
ence arrived unexpectedly
about a year ago when a letter
was delivered to Israel's
ambassador to Burma, Itiel
Pann. It carried a plea for
religious books, written with a
clarity of style that demon-
strated an English education.
It was signed by Lian Tual,
"Secretary of the Community
of Judaism, Tiddim." By
chance, this reporter was with
the ambassador when the
letter arrived.
Tidim lies buried in western Burma, close
to the borders with Bangladesh and India.
The territory is tropical and malarious...
Since then I have maintained
contact with Lian Tual and he
confirms there are 52 Jews
surviving as one community
but in desperate poverty. The
fact that they are determined
to practice their faith and cling
to their Jewish traditions in
such imperfect and isolated
terrain is remarkable. The
only synagogue in Burma is in
Rangoon where 18 Jews
survive, few of whom are
interested in their faith.
Rangoon is too distant and
hazardous a trip to be under-
taken lightly from Tiddim.
Tiddim lies buried in
western Burma, close to the
borders with Bangladesh and
India. The territory is tropical
and malarious, and electricity
has yet to make an appear-
ance. Nagaland, until ten
years ago a haven for ambi-
tious headhunters, straddles
the frontier. Access by any
foreigner is almost impossible
due to tribal conflicts. In addi-
tion, anti-government guer-
rilla warfare has persuaded
the Burmese army to impose a
permanent curfew on the
Lian Tual, 72, is secretary of
a community that appears
from their photograph to be
comprised of a few elderly
members and a multitude of
children. Realizing they were
on the brink of extinction, they
seem to have embarked upon a
program of multiplication.
'We are few in number, just was perhaps an unusual quirk
of fate, but nonetheless credi-
It is known that there were
Burmese Jews living in India
until quite recently. Their
linage can be traced to the lost
tribe of Menashe, predomin-
antly from Bombay and
Calcutta. But in all probability
the Jews of Tiddim are
remnants of the Mazourah,
from Manipur, near the
Chinese border, and it is plaus-
ible that centuries before they
migrated there from Kaifeng,
in central China. Like those in
the photo, the Jews of the tribe
of Mazourah wore kippot, and
observed the mitzvot

52 in all," says Tual. "Since
February our leader, Caleb, is
sick in his bed [he has since
died]. When he is recover (sic)
again from illness all of us will
have bar mitzva."
Tual explains that the
community originated in Chur-
achanpur, in Manipur State,
northeast India, and that
about half of them converted
to Judaism in India. It remains
unclear what prompted their
mass devotion, and by what
religious authority. It is a fact,
however, that India was home
to a sizeable Shephardic
Jewish community before it
dispersed widely after World
War n. That this "lost tribe"
should have wandered into
such an isolated part of Burma
[commandments]. In February
1985, Rabbi Menahem
Hacohen, a member of the
Knesset, met with some of this
tribe in India, recognized their
Jewish status and tried to
persuade them to emigrate to
Unlike the Jews of Ethiopia,
some of whom made their way
to Burma, the Jews of Tiddim
are not threatened by a hostile
government, but rather by an
indifferent one. It is not yet
known if they would contem-
plate immigration to Israel
given the opportunity. (The
Socialist Republic of Burma
does not permit its citizens to
leave the country at will.)
Tual's plea for prayer books,
song books with music and a
typewriter, have now been
satisfied, but his people still
remain pitifully impoverished.
"We are too poor to buy even
one prayer book," he says.
Impoverished or not, this
tiny community of Burmese
Jews contines to take pride in
their faith and traditions. Tual
showed me a certificate that
confirms how he, despite his
advanced years, has just un-
dergone circumcision. The
hazzan attests to this on a
crude parchment and the other
male members of the tribe
have followed Tual's example.

Hungarian Reawakening
A "reawakening" of Jewish
communal life in Hungary,
more than 40 years after
German troops were driven
from the country, has been
reported by the Memorial
Foundation for Jewish
Foundation president Philip
Klutznick explained that
"Hungary's political climate
today is favorable to Jewish
religious and cultural activity
and conducive to the streng-
thening of Jewish identity."
Local efforts supported by the
foundation, said Klutznick, are
increasing Jewish knowledge
and consciousness through
educational programs for the
entire family.
The Memorial Foundation
for Jewish Culture was estab-
lished in 1965 with reparations
funds from the West German
government. Last year, the
foundation established the
Center for Jewish Studies in
Budapest. It also pays for the
training of rabbis at the
Budapest Rabbinical
Seminary, the only such center
in Eastern Europe.
The foundation's 29,000-
copy printing of three publica-
tions for Hungarian Jewish
children has been sold out,
although the entire Jewish
population of the country is
only 80,000. The foundation's
Executive Director Dr. Jerry
Hochbaum, said that this is
"strong evidence that
Hungary s Jews are eager for
their children to learn about
their Jewish heritage. And ...
indicative of a positive atmos-
phere in which Jews can prac-
tice their faith and express
their culture."

move confirms his belief that
Hussein has no influence on
the local population of the
West Bank.
Options for Peace
The premier also pointed to
what he termed "internal
conflict" in Hussein's speech:
The king supported the right
of self-determination of the
Palestinians in the West Bank.,
while denying the same right
to Palestinians living in
Shamir implied that on
either side of the Jordan River,
the Palestinians make a weak
case for statehood. He reiter-
ated his view that the only
reasonable way to peace is
within the framework of the
Camp David accords.
But during the same
program, Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres
message that
said that the
came across
from Hussein is that until elec-
tions are held in Israel on Nov.
1, "there are no options what-
soever for negotiations."
Asked whether the king's
latest move amounts to the
end of the "Jordanian option,"
Peres replied: "If there is no
Israeli option, what can the
king do?,r
He apparently was referring
to the national unity coalition's
failure to reach a consensus on
the peace process. Peres, who
heads the Labor Party, has
favored an international peace
conference as a prelude to
direct negotiations. Shamir
and his Likud bloc are adam-
antly opposed to this concept.
The foreign minister expre-
ssed satisfaction that Hussein
did, in fact, stress in his speech
his commitment to the peace
"Now we all understand that
one must wait until the deci-
sion is made in Israel," he said.
"The elections will determine
whether the Jordanian option
has died or not."
Peres interpreted the Jor-
danian move as putting a chal-
lenge before the local popula-
tion to "translate the
uprising into a political solu-
tion. But, he noted, the PLO
has no political solutions.
"And at the end of the road,
anyone who wants to put an
end to the intifada, must talk
to both the Jordanians and the
Palestinians," he said.

In-House Dispute on Taba
Continued from Page 3
Partisan recriminations over
the handling of the Taba
border dispute with Egypt
enlivened a session of the
Knesset Foreign Affairs and
Defense Committee.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
started the uproar by inti-
mating that the Labor Party
had bullied Likud into
accepting binding arbitration
of the dispute, which now
seems likely to uphold Egypt's
claim to the tiny strip of Red
Sea Beach instead of Israel's.
"Those who supported arbi-
tration rather than conciliation
served Egypt's interests
rather than Israel's," Shamir
claimed. He was clearly refer-
ring to his differences with
Labor Party leader Shimon
Peres in 1985 and 1986.
Peres was prime minister at
that time. Shamir, who was
foreign minister, insisted that
the conciliation process had
not been exhausted, while
Peres pressed for interna-
tional arbitration.
Both methods of settling
bilateral disputes are allowed
under the terms of the 1979
Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty.
The Taba dispute was
submitted to an international
panel of five experts, which
spent most of last year sifting
thousands of documents and
hearing oral arguments by
both sides in Geneva.
Attempts at Conciliation
negotiations aimed at reaching
a compromise continued
with the support and encour-
agement of the United States.
But they had failed to make
progress by the time the arbi-
trators adjourned last
February to begin delibera-
tions. It is widely assumed the
international panel has
decided in Egypt's favor.
Conciliation effortsd have
now been revived. The arbitra-
tion panel has agreed to delay
announcement of its decision
until September to give the
disputants time to hammer out
a compromise.

News of this leaked after a

arrived by mistake in Kibbutz

its members chose to share the

much shaking of heads and

if not quite Orthodox, is a

President Reagan maintained
that although he has not been
able to get Congress to adopt a
constitutional amendment
allowing voluntary prayer in
the public schools, he believes
school prayer will again
become a reality.

such a measure will be
passed," Reagan told some
8,000 cheering delegates at a

The president noted that the
Constitutional Convention
opened its sessions with a
prayer, as has the U.S.
Congress since its inception.
"Isn't it time we let God back
in the classrooms?" he asked.
Reagan, who was consis-
tently applauded by the young
evangelicals, attacked those
who "misread the Constitu-
tion" by opposing "public
symbols" of religion or
mentioning God in the schools.
He did not elaborate on what
symbols he meant.
The president noted that his
administration has had success
with the decision by the U.S.
Supreme Court upholding the
1984 Equal Access Law, which
requires that prayer groups be
allowed to use the schools on
the same basis as other extra-
curricular activities.
"If a math group or a chess
group can meet after school,
then so can a prayer group,"
he said.

istration had also won a

Possible Breakthrough With China
JERUSALEM (JTA) A message from the Israeli
Consulate General in Hong Kong raised hopes here that
Israeli citizens will soon be allowed to visit the People's
Republic of China.
Until now, Israelis could visit China only as members of
organized foreign tourist groups. While tour operators
have had no indication from Peking of a change of policy,
the cable predicted that a change would soon be made.

U.S.:'No'to PLO
By David Friedman
The State Department
stressed that U.S. officials are
prepared to meet at any time
with "responsible Palestin-
ians," but not members of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
"There's no change in our
policy toward the PLO and
U.S government contacts with
the PLO," State Department
spokesman Charles Redman
He was responding to a
report that Egyptian Presi-
dent Hosni Mubarak told an
interviewer that he believes
that the United States is ready
to meet with non-prominent
members of the PLO.
The U.S. position on the
PLO since 1975 has been that
it will have no contacts with
the organization until it recog-
nizes Israel's right to exist and
accepts U.S. Security Council
Resolutions 242 and 338. They
call for the return of Arab land
and recognize Israel's right to
exist within secure borders.
Redman announced that
Richard Murphy, assistant
secretary state for Near
Eastern and South Aisian
affairs, will go to Israel,
Jordan, Syria and Egypt to
discuss the peace process in
the Middle East.
'As usual, he will be
prepared to meet with respon-
sible Palestinians to discuss
the peace process on the same
basis as Secretary (of State
George) Shultz has offered to
do during his trips to the
Middle East," Redman said.
When Shultz went to Israel
in June, right after the
Moscow summit, he sought to
meet with Palestinians, but
they refused to attend a sched-
uled meeting.
Redman said Murphy's trip
was not intended to pave the
way for another visit by Shultz
to the region.
Before going to the Middle
East, Murphy was scheduled
to meet in Geneva with his
Soviet counterpart, Vladimir
Polyakov, to discuss the
Mideast peace process and the
Iran-Iraq war, Redman said.
