Administration Supports
Same Aid To Israel
Senior State Department offi-
cials urged Congress to give
the Bush administration
greater flexibility in providing
economic and military assis-
tance to foreign countries.
But Deputy Secretary of
State Lawrence Eagleburger
said that even if Congress did
so, Israel and Egypt would
continue to receive the same
level of aid the two countries
have enjoyed for the last sev-
eral years.
His comments seemed to lift
the uncertainly about whether
there would be a reduction in
aid to Israel, in light of a
proposal made earlier by Sen-
ate Minority Leader Robert
Dole (R-Kan.).
Dole suggested cutting aid
to the five largest recipients by
5 percent, in order to provide
funds for emerging democra-
cies in Eastern Europe and
Panama. The five countries
are Israel, Egypt, the Philip-
pines, Turkey and Pakistan.
While not mentioning Dole's
specific suggestions, Eagle-
burger said the "Dole proposal
has generated what we would
consider to be a useful debate
on the subject."
The deputy secretary's
remarks were made as he and
other State Department offi-
cials briefed reporters on the
department's budgetary
requests for the 1991 fiscal
They include $1.8 billion in
military aid and $1.2 billion
economic aid for Israel, and
$2.3 billion in military aid and
$965 million in economic aid
for Egypt.
Egypt has been linked with
Israel in the aid package, ever
since the two countries signed
the 1978 Camp David Accords.
Aid to several other countries
is also earmarked by Con-
gress, giving the administra-
tion little discretion in appor-
tioning aid to other countries.
According to Eagleburger,
92 percent of the $4.7 billion in
military aid, and 82 percent of
the $3.2 billion in economic
aid, is earmarked by Congress.
This fiscal year, in addition
to retaining the earmarks,
Congress also cut the total
foreign aid budget, meaning
the administration had to cut
or eliminate aid for countries
throughout the world, the
deputy secretary said.
"We need greater flexibility
to meet the rapid changes tak-
ing place around the world,"
said Eagleburger.
Conditions in such places as
Eastern Europe are changing
so rapidly that flexibility is
needed to meet problems as
they occur, rather than have
the money earmarked for spe-
cific items, he said.
Nevertheless, the adminis-
tration has no plans to reduce
aid to the Middle East, espe-
cially with Secretary of State
James Baker "deeply engaged
in the effort to move the peace
process forward."
He appeared to rule out a
change in the appropriations
for Israel and Egypt, even if
there is no progress in the
peace effort, because the Mid-

could no longer maintain its
synagogue. As it began to
deteriorate, the building was
used more as a warehouse and
a center for cultural events
than as a house of prayer.

of an anonymous donor, began

als available.

Bonds, Hadassah To Aid Olim
Urgent action to help Israel
absorb the tens of thousands of
Soviet Jews beginning to
arrive there has just been
announced by the State of
Israel Bonds Organization and
by Hadassah, the Women's
Zionist Organization of Amer-
Hadassah has allocated $1
million for a wide range of
absorption needs.
The Bonds Organization's
aim is to help Israel build
housing and create jobs for the
Soviet Jewish immigrants.
The announcement by
Bonds' North American chair-
man. William Belzberg, cited
reports from the Soviet Union
of a dangerous rise of anti-
Semitism there.
It represents a departure for
the Bonds Organization, which
sells dividend-paying Israeli
bonds as capital investment
instruments in all aspects of
Israel's economic develop-
ment. The organization sold
$789 million in Israeli bonds
worldwide last year.
Now it will launch an emer-
gency effort to convince inves-
tors of $10,000 or more to
purchase new bonds immedi-
ately, to provide loan funds to
Israel for the absorption of
Soviet emigres.
Bush Disturbed
By Reports Of
President Bush told two dozen
Jewish leaders at the White
House this week that he is
disturbed about the reports he
has been receiving about the
increased threat of anti-
Semitism in the Soviet Union.
Bush understands that the
issue now is not just emigra-
tion, but rescue," said Malcolm
Hoenlein, executive director of
the Conference of Presidents
of Major American Jewish
He said that there was a
"real emotional content" to
the discussion on Soviet Jews.

Bus Must Not Derail Peace
Neither the murderous attack on the
Israeli bus in Egypt nor the possibly mis-
quoted words of Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir can be allowed to halt the painfully
slow progress towards peace in the Middle
Egypt and the PLO were quick to con-
demn the slaughter of 10 Israelis and two
Egyptians on their way to Cairo. Yet their
ongoing anti-Israeli rhetoric hardly sets the
tone for curbing such violence.
Shamir quickly clarified his comments on
the need for a "bigger" Israel to absorb the
increasing wave of Soviet Jewish immi-
grants. And he correctly pointed out that
less than one percent of the recent arrivals
actually settled in the territories.
Opponents of the peace process rang-
ing from the extreme right in Israel to
militant Palestinians to the radical states of
Libya, Iran and Syria have been quick to
utilize these latest "incidents" for their
own purposes.
Fortunately, the United States was quick
to voice its horror at the tragic bus attack.
At the highest level, including the Presi-
dent, our government is seeking to make
direct flights from Moscow to Ben Gurion
Airport a reality.
At the same time, the opponents within
Likud should not harden Shamir's position,
which already divides the Israeli public and
world Jewry.
The delicate balance of a coalition gov-
ernment, like democracy itself, may not be
perfect, but it is better than any other form
now possible.
Tragic Lesson Haunted Goldberg
late Justice Arthur Goldberg,
among his many distinctions,
served in the mid-1980s as
chairman of a research study
on the response of American
Jewry to saving Jews during
the Nazi Holocaust.
Together with representa-
tives from most of the major
Jewish religious and com-
munal organizations, I served
on that committee. It was one
of the most uncomfortable
experiences of my life.
There were all kinds of
explanations of extenuating
circumstances given limited
Jewish political clout, possible
rise of anti-Semitism, unrelia-
ble information about the Jew-
ish plight. The bottom line was
that with rare exception,
American and world Jewry
had not risen fully to the chal-
lenge and the mitzvah of "pid-

I expect the U.S. relation-
ship with Israel will take on
added importance as the
upheaval in Eastern Europe
and the Soviet Union contin-
ues. The U.S. Navy will play a
bigger role in our defense
strategy as the military situa-
tion in Europe changes, and
Israel plays a key role in sup-
porting our Navy through the
port of Haifa.
So now is not the time to act
precipitously to cut aid to
Israel. Now is not the time to
give strength to Israel's ene-
mies. Now is not the time to
impede Israel's ability to
absorb thousands of Soviet
Jews fleeing persecution and
uncertainty in a changing
Soviet Union. Rather, we must
work with Israel to bring the
winds of change to the Middle
East change that will enable
Jews and Arabs to live side by
side in peace.

As more information comes
in daily about the condition of
Soviet Jewry, I think back to
that Goldberg study and the
In no way do I wish to
suggest that the Soviet Union
today and Nazi Germany then
are comparable. But there are
moral challenges for Jewry
and Israel that are in many
ways analogous. Within the
next several years, there may
be nearly a million Soviet Jews
emigrating to Israel. There are
growing fears among them
that the explosive ethnic
unrest and right-wing nation-
alism might unleash floodgates
of ancient Russian anti-
Until glasnost and pere-
stroika are able to do any
transforming work, the Soviet
economy may well become dis-
astrous, for Soviet citizens and
especially Jews.
The Soviet Jewish emigra-
tion for which we have
battled for some 15 years
will pose massive problems for
Israel and world Jewry, includ-
ing housing, jobs, and their
integration as Jews in Israel's
complicated social fabric.
But precisely those kinds of
obstacles and challenges would
have confronted us if we had
been able to rescue and reha-
bilitate the six million Jews
who were slaughtered in the
1930s and 1940s.
In hindsight, what Jew of
conscience would not have
wanted to have such life-
saving challenges to face and
deal with? Today, what Jew of
conscience does not want to
assure that history does not
repeat itself in the redemption
of Soviet Jewry?

Almost All Baku Jews
Want To Leave At Once
Almost all of the estimated
25,000 to 30,000 Jews in Baku,
capital of the Soviet republic of
Azerbaijan, want to leave for
Israel immediately to escape
ethnic strife.
That was the consistent
theme of telephone reports to
leaders of B'nai B'rith Interna-
tional and the Long Island
Committee for Soviet Jewry.
A report in The Los Angeles
Times said Azerbaijan Jews
are fleeing to Moscow by the
thousands, and that some of
the refugees report incidents
of Jews being beaten or threat-
ened by Moslem extremists.
The reports came from con-
tacts in Moscow, who spoke to
Yegev Sokhulutsky, a member
of the Jewish cultural associa-
tion in Baku, and from Jews
speaking directly from Baku.
According to these inform-
ants, there are no reports of
anti- Semitism, but Jews want
to avoid involvement in the
ethnic warfare between Azer-
baijanis and Armenians in the
Caspian Sea port, where thou-
sands of Soviet troops have
been sent to try to restore
The Jews fear being asked to

time friends.

Mishne said invitations from
Israel, necessary to begin the
emigration process, were
arriving. Korsh, however, said
there was no mail delivery.
Korsh told Hillel Kuttler,
coordinator of Soviet chapters
of B'nai B'rith, that he has
been waiting six months for an
invitation even though a sister
was already in Israel and
another was in Moscow

Deputy Foreign Minister
Binyamin Netanyahu said
efforts must be made to get
Jews out of the Soviet Union
while the Soviet authorities
continue their liberal emigra-
tion policies, which, he
implied, could be reversed at
any time.
According to Netanyahu,
about 300,000 Soviet Jews
already hold exit visas, but
have been unable to leave
because of lack of funds and
lack of flights to Israel.
Israeli authorities believe
the Soviets will eventually
allow direct flights from Mos-
cow to Tel Aviv. They have
been held up so far, in part
because of strong complaints
from the Arab states against
the influx of Jews from the
Soviet Union into Israel.

Jewish Bone Marrow Drive Grows
What started as an effort to
find a bone marrow donor for
Allison Atlas has grown over
the last three months into a
national drive that is building a
life-saving resource for Jews
throughout the world.
The crisis search continues
to seek a match for Allison, but
the addition of thousands of
Jewish names to the National
Bone Marrow Registry has so
far produced preliminary
matches for nine other persons
who need a bone marrow
Allison, 20, a student at New
York University, suffers from
leukemia. She has only one
chance for life: a compatible
donor who can give her a bone
marrow transplant. Twelve
weeks ago in her parents' liv-
ing room in Bethesda, Mary-
land, the search began with
relatives and friends. None
matched Allison's blood tissue
In the ensuing weeks, Alli-
son's family has been joined by
Jewish organizations including
synagogues, UJA Federations,
B'Nai Brith, Hadassah, Jewish
community centers and Jewish
newspapers in an amazing
drive that so far has tested
over 14,000 Jews in Washing-
ton, Baltimore, New York,
Boston, Norfolk and Harris-
burg. Since the National
Registry contained far too few
Jewish names, Allison's cam-
paign has provided life-giving
promise to other Jews
throughout the world, includ-
ing those in Israel.
The spark plug behind this
entire effort has been Allison
Atlas herself, a beautiful
young woman who has shown
courage and leadership which
has inspired people to come
forth to be tested.
The desperate search goes
on for Allison, and time is
short. Doctors say the best
chance to save Allison proba-
bly will come from locating an
unknown distant relative of
eastern European origin.
Even more specifically, per-
sons whose roots are in the
Lithuanian villages of Disna
and Braslave near Vilna, espe-
cially with names such as Got-
kin, Serklin, Simkin, Henkin
and Atlas. The search also
focuses on people from Dol-
hinow (Dolginovo) and
Rechista, both near Gomel,
and from Glubokoye, all in
ByeloRussia, formerly Lithua-
nia, especially with family
names such as Kotz, katz,
Rubin and Mirman. It is possi-
ble that descendants of anyone
from these villages could be a
distant relative whose blood
tissue type might match that
of Allison.
Allison Atlas
Blood tissue types are deter-
mined by taking a simple blood
test. If a match is found, a
transplant is done by a simple,
safe procedure, in which a
donor gives a small amount of
bone marrow, which the body
replaces in 7 to 10 days.
If you or your ancestors are
from any of these Lithuanian
villages, or other nearby areas,
then please contact the family
by calling toll free 1-800-456-
9285, or writing to the Atlas
family at 2 Rock Falls Court
Rockville, MD 20854.
Tax-deductible contributions
made out to Jewish Social Ser-
vice Agency, sent to the Rock-
ville address, are also needed
to pay for testing.
Allison's need is urgent.
Please call or write if you think
there is any chance you might
be a relative or if you have
information you think might
be useful in locating one.

Lincoln And The Jews:
Largely Untold Story
J Passover
ST. PAUL (JTA) Abra-
ham Lincoln's relationship
with the Jews is a little known,
but fascinating part of Ameri-
can Jewish history. It is a story
well worth retelling, particu-
larly as we mark the 181st
anniversary of his birth.
Abraham Jonas was an Eng-
lish Jew who also kept a store
in Williamstown, Ky., near
Lincoln's birthplace. He
became a close political and
personal friend of Lincoln, and
was a staunch political suppor-
ter during Lincoln's heart-
breaking defeat by Stephen
Douglas. Others deserted Lin-
coln, but not Jonas, who was
one of two men to first propose
Lincoln for president of the
United States.
After Lincoln's election,
Jonas learned of a plot by
prominent Southerners to
assassinate the president.
Jonas pleaded with Lincoln to
take precautions for "your
personal safety and the preser-
vation of our national secur-
ity." Lincoln heeded his advice
and arrived in Washington
under secret guard in the mid-
dle of the night. He thereby
averted a planned attack on
his train in Baltimore.
During his presidency, sev-
eral events are recorded of
Lincoln's direct intervention
on behalf of Jews.
The first occurred during the
Civil War, when a Jew was
appointed to the chaplaincy. A
few fundamentalist Protestant
clergy protested vocally, point-
ing out that by statute, mili-
tary chaplains had to be of
"Christian faith."
The Jewish community was
angered, and a struggle began.
The matter was brought to the
attention of Lincoln, who
immediately went to work to
change the unfair law.
Eventually, Congress did
revise the law, and President
Lincoln appointed Rabbi Fer-
dinand Sarner the first Jewish
chaplain. It was largely due to
Lincoln that rabbis have been
recognized as military chap-
An even more significant
anti-Semitic incident was the
infamous Order No. 11 of Gen-
eral Ulysses Grant, expelling
Jews from the area under his
In Paducah, the 30 Jewish
families were terror-stricken.
Respected and established,
some with family in the Union
Army, the Jewish community
was shocked and numbed.
However, one Jew, Cesar
Kaskel, was outraged and
determined to right the wrong.
Through sustained effort he
obtained a meeting with Lin-
coln, who knew nothing about
Order No. 11. When Kaskel
met Lincoln, the following con-
versation took place:
Lincoln: And so the children
of Israel were driven from the
happy land of Canaan?
Kaskel: Yes, and that is why
we have come unto Father
Abraham's bosom, asking pro-
Lincoln: And this protection
they shall have at once.
Lincoln immediately wrote a
personal note and had the
unfortunate law canceled at

Horvitzes Named As 1990
Persons Of Vision
Norma and William D. Hor-
vitz were presented the Bas-
com Palmer Eye Institute's
1990 People of Vision Award
by Dr. Edward W.D. Norton,
founding medical director of
the Institute, at a Tribute Din-
ner on January 30 in the Crys-
tal Ballroom of Pier 66. The
Horvitzes are the first Brow-
ard County residents to have
been selected for this prestig-
ious award.
More than 150 people
attended the cocktail party
and seated dinner which hon-
ored the Horvitzes. Steve
Crowley, Money Editor for
ABC's Good Morning Amer-
ica, was guest speaker at the
event. He gave his predictions
for investments (Turing the
1990's saying that while he
sees a real estate recession,
certain stocks will increase in
value. He also said that though
the 1980's may have been the
"me" generation, the 1990's
will become the "we" genera-
tion as people will begin giving
back to society.
Following Mr. Crowley's
speech, Dr. Norton presented
the Baccarat Crystal People of
Vision Award to the Hor-
vitzes. "I've had poor eyesight
since birth," Mr. Horvitz said,
"and it's one of those things
if you have personal involve-
ment, you tend to pay atten-
tion to what's happening in the
field." The Horvitzes have
launched Bascom Palmer's
campaign to raise $6.5 million
dollars for the expansion of its
outpatient clinic. Their
$500,000 gift is for the new
Children's Clinic to be con-
structed on the fourth floor of
the Institute's Anne Bates
Leach Eye Hospital. "We
want to encourage and support
Bascom Palmer's work with
children," said Horvitz.
Mr. Horvitz is the former
president of Hollywood, Inc., a
commercial and residential
building company responsible
for the development of Hollyw-
ood Mall, Emerald Hills and
South Florida Industrial Park.
He is also a trustee of Nova
University, a director of South
Florida Coordinating Council

Senators Ask Moscow
For Direct Flights
Secretary of State James
Baker carried to Moscow this
week a letter signed by U.S.
senators that asks Soviet Pres-
ident Mikhail Gorbachev to
permit Jews to leave the
Soviet Union on direct flights
to Israel.
Baker was expected to dis-
cuss the subject of direct
flights during his meetings
with Soviet Foreign Minister
Eduard Shevardnadze. The
secretary of state is to meet
with Gorbachev on Friday.
White House Chief of Staff
John Sununu, speaking at an
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee luncheon at the
Israeli Embassy, said it would
be appropriate for Baker to
raise the direct flights issue
while in Moscow, according to
an Israeli official present.
The matter is especially
urgent now, because thou-
sands of Soviet Jews who have
received permission to emi-
grate are unable to leave due
to a shortage of flights out of
the country.
According to the Israeli offi-
cial, Soviet authorities issued
about 6,000 exit visas for Jews
in January. But about 15,000
to 20,000 Jews who want to
leave the Soviet Union are
currently "backed up," wait-
ing to get out.

Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
. "And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the hearing
of the people; and they said; 'All that the Lord hath spoken will we
do, and obey' "
(Exod. U-7).
MISHPATIM The laws that Moses submitted to the children of
Israel after they had heard the Ten Commandments dealt with
the following subjects:
The Hebrew servant; murder, filial aggression and blasphemy;
kidnapping; criminal assault; maiming of a servant; the butting
bull; accidents and damages; theft; property damage; watchmen;
seduction; proselytes, the orphaned and the widowed; lending and
borrowing; the sanctification of God and man; relations with the
enemy; the Sabbatical year; the Sabbath; the three pilgrim
festivals; idolatry.
This portion concludes with the renewal of the covenant with
God. The children of Israel accepted the covenant with the words:
"All that the Lord hath spoken will we do, and obey" (Exodus
Si.7). Moses then ascended Mount Sinai to receive the tablets of
the Law.
(The recounting of the Weekly Portion of the Law is extracted and
based upon "The Graphic History of the Jewish Heritage," edited by
P. Wollman-Tsamir, published by Shengold. The volume is available
