Electoral Reform Drive

NEW YORK Dr. Ismar
Schorsch, chancellor of the
Jewish Theological Seminary
of America and spiritual
leader of the Conservative
Movement, this week called
oa American Jewry "to

toral reform ia Iarael."

The chancellor said the real
fanlt for Israel's crisis over
forming a new government
lies with leaders of the Likud
sad Labor parties.
"Most assaredly, (it) does

Herzog Gets Petitions
tions bearing the signatures of
half a million Israelis demand-
ing reform of the electoral
system were delivered to Pres-
ident Chaim Herzog as Israel
marked the 42nd anniversary
of its independence.
Indicative of a swiftly grow-
ing grass-roots movement, the
petitions were brought to the
doors of the president's official
residence here in cars, pickup
trucks and other vehicles.
They were carried into the
reception room in all manner
of boxes, parcels and enve-
lopes, to be deposited before a
chief of state who is himself
firmly committed to the princi-
ple of reform.
Chaim Herzog
"The political process as it
unfolds before us has become
unacceptable in the eyes of
many," the president said, in a
clear allusion to the efforts by
both major parties to establish
governing coalitions.
He spoke of mounting public
disgust with the spectacle of
back-room bargaining, deal-
making and outright political
bribery that have character-
ized those efforts on both sides
since the Likud-Labor unity
government was toppled
[arch 15.
"There has almost never
been so overwhelming a public
protest. The citizen who has
the democratic right to choose
his representatives freely can-
not react calmly when political
machinations make an abso-
lute mockery of the principles
of democracy and lead to dis-
tortions unworthy of a free
society," Herzog declared.

Shamir Rejects
aker Peace Plan
Acting Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir appears to have put
the peace process he launched
a year ago on hold.
He made clear he is not
prepared to hold talks with
Palestinians at this time and
that any new Likud-led gov-
ernment he succeeds in form-
ing would reject U.S. Secret-
ary of State James Baker's
peace formula.
Shamir received a 21-day
mandate from President
Chaim Herzog to try to form a
governing coalition. It was a
task Labor Party leader Shi-
mon Peres acknowledged fail-
ing when he relinquished his
mandate to Herzog after 36
days of fruitless efforts.
Shamir expressed his hard-
line views on the peace process
in a radio interview. The prime
minister said his new govern-
ment would not respond posi-
tively to Baker's suggestion
for an Israeli-Palestinian dia-
logue, to be held in Cairo at the
invitation of Egypt.

The State Department said
that it was "perplexed" by
acting Israeli Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir's statements
opposing a U.S. framework for
an Israeli-Palestinian dialogue.
Shamir, who last Friday
received a 21-day mandate to
try to form a new government,
said in an Independence Day
radio interview that any new
Likud-led government would
not respond positively to a
U.S. proposal for a prelimi-
nary Israeli-Palestinian dia-
"We are perplexed by the
prime minister's statement,"
said State Department spoke-
swoman Margaret Tutwiler.
"The government of Israel
asked us to find a Palestinian
partner from the territories to
help implement its May 1989
initiative," which "we were on
the verge of accomplishing,"
she said.
The purpose of such a dia-
logue, to be held in Cairo,

Nevertheless, the president,
whose office is non-political
but prestigious and influential,
has been careful not to lean
toward any specific plan for
reform. He stressed only that
all movements toward that
goal should follow democratic
Under the present system,
voters cast ballots for party
lists, which are awarded Knes-
set seats in proportion to the
size of their vote.
The system has effectively
prevented either of the major
parties from winning a govern-
ing majority, thereby placing
disproportionate bargaining
power in the hands of small
factions of unrepresentative,
narrow-issue groups.

Now that Labor has missed
its chance to replace the fallen
regime, Shamir is writing off a
new unity government.
He slammed the door on a
proposal by the Labor Party's
No. 2 official, Yitzhak Rabin,
to establish a new Labor-Likud
alliance of six months' dura-
tion for the sole purpose of
enacting electoral reforms, to
be followed by new elections.

would be to set the ground
rules for holding Palestinian
elections in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip. Secretary of State
James Baker conceived the
idea to help implement an offi-
cial Israeli peace plan
approved by the Shamir-led
government last May.
Accepting Baker's concept
"meant saying yes to the gov-
ernment of Israel's plan, yes to
Israeli-Palestinian dialogue
and yes to peace," Tutwiler
said. "Continuing to say no
will give us very little to work
with and will probably mean
losing an important opportu-
nity to move peace forward."
But she added, "We hope
that once the political situation
in Israel clarifies, we can work
with the government of Israel
to move ahead."
If the Israeli peace initiative
fails, Baker has threatened to
reveal the recent history of
U.S. negotiations with Israel
and Egypt, to tell the world
who was at fault for making it
fail. Egypt represents the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion in the talks.
Arafat Says
'Open Fire'?
report that Palestine Libera-
tion Organization leader Yasir
Arafat has ordered his men to
"open fire" on Jews immigrat-
ing to Israel has aroused anger
here and renewed calls for
direct flights of Jews from the
Soviet Union.
Ma'ariv this week cited a
report in the Lebanese weekly
Al- Muharar that quoted
instructions Arafat reportedly
gave at a meeting in Baghdad
with senior officers of Al
Fatah, the largest and most
moderate of the PLO's mili-
tary factions.
He threatened to jail anyone
who failed to obey.
According to Al-Muharar,
Arafat declared, "I want to
say clearly: Open fire on the
new Jewish immigrants."
"I want you to shoot, on the
ground or in the air, at every
i m migran t who thinks our land
is a playground and that immi-
gration to it is a holiday or a
picnic," the PLO leader was
reported to have said.
"Today I give you my
instructions to use violence
against the immigrants. I will
jail whoever refuses to do
this," Arafat threatened
according to the report.

100 Years Of Hebrew Language
Through Eyes Of First Modern Hebrew-Speaking Child
Today, Hebrew is naturally
accepted as the popularly spo-
ken language of Israel, and
Eliezer Ben Yehuda as the
visionary pioneer who intro-
duced Hebrew to the vernacu-
lar. Virtually every city and
town in Israel boasts a Ben
Yehuda street to commemor-
ate the man whose genius
made him the first to recognize
that a nation must have a
language as well as a land.
But it wasn't always so.
"Crazy Zealot"
A hundred years ago,
Eliezer Ben Yehuda was con-
sidered by the people of the
Holy Land to be a crazy zealot,
whose ideas were dangerous
as well as odd. Most of his
fellow Jews believed that
Hebrew should be a holy lan-
guage only, and they shunned
him. His children were ostra-
cized. His family almost
starved; his first wife and most
of his children sickened and
Still, he persisted. No mem-
ber of his family was allowed
to utter a word other than in
Hebrew even though no one
else could understand them
in order to prove that Hebrew
could be a living language.
The person who bore the
brunt of Ben Yehuda's experi-
mental zeal was his eldest son
Itamar, the first child in the
land of Israel to speak Hebrew
as a day to day language.
Itamar's story, which is also
the story of the introduction of
Hebrew as a modern language,
is told in one of the best loved
books of Israeli children's liter-
ature, "Habachor B'Beit Avi
(E.B.Y.)" by Dvorah Omer.

late because it contains a play
on words, but roughly it means
"The First Born to the House
of E.B.Y. (My father)."
Omer's books are to Israeli
children what Louisa May
Alcotts and L.M. Montgo-
mery's are to North American
children. They are almost uni-
versally read and beloved.
Dvorah Omer herself is so well
known to Israeli readers that
in a 1989 survey by the Hada
shot newspaper, she was voted
by readers one of the most
outstanding Israelis in their
field since the establishment of
the State.
Now in its 22nd edition,
"Habachor B'Beit Avi" has
won such plaudits as the
respected Lamdan prize for
Hebrew literature, and is
regarded as an Israeli chil-
dren's classic. Although the
book was first published more
than 20 years ago, it retains its
freshness and appeal: 10,000
copies have been sold in the
past two months alone.
Dvorah Omer was one of the
first to tell the real story of the
struggle to establish the
Hebrew language in Israel.
Ben Yehuda (born Eliezer
Perlman in Lithuania) came to
Palestine in 1881 convinced
that Hebrew should be revived
as the language of the Jews in
their own land. Not a mere
theoretician, he ruled that in
his own household, no word
other than Hebrew be heard,
and he devoted much of his life
to the compilation of a multi-
volumed modern Hebrew dic-
Until Dvorah Omer wrote
her biography, the dark side of
his passion and its effect on his
children was little known.
"Like almost everyone else
in Israel, I thought of Eliezer
Ben Yehuda, when I thought
of him at all, in terms of a
popular sons at the time:
Eliezer Ben Yehuda, crazy,
crazy, crazy for Hebrew," or I
thought of the streets named
after him, or his dictionary. I
never considered his life story
"One night we happened to
attend an interview program
and the host introduced Ehud,
the son of Eliezer Ben Yehuda.
The whole audience groaned.
He seemed very old and boring
as he walked up to the stage. If
I hadn't been in the front row,
I would have walked out. But
as he told the story of his
childhood, the audience was
"I said to myself, 'How is
this possible? I am a third
generation Israeli and I have
never heard these stories.' I
saw that Hebrew speakers had
little knowledge of who Eliezer
Ben Yehuda was. I had to hear
more so I met him again,
wrote an article, and even-
tually a book."
Told through the eyes of Ben
Yehuda's eldest son Itamar,
the book tells the painful story
of the mental and physical
anguish his family suffered as
a result of his determination to
speak only Hebrew.
Omer describes Itamar's
feelings when neighborhood
children were forbidden by
their parents to play with him,

celebrate its U2nd anniversary of independence. It contains

or even speak to him. In one
incident, his pet dog was
stoned and killed by unthink-
ing children.
I often get letters from chil-
dren saying that they cried
when they read the book. I
answer, I cried when I wrote
the book. As a mother, it was
very painful for me to tell the
truth about children suffering.
I hated Eliezer Ben Yehuda at
"After I finished the book, I
gave it to Ehud Ben Yehuda to
read with trepidation, because
I had been critical of his
father. He told me, 'Dvorah,
he was worse. He never
explained to us children why
he was doing all this to us.'
"I see Ben Yehuda as an
extremist, but when we look at
the pioneers of that genera-
tion, they were all extremists.
Their values were primary;
they were like Abraham sacrif-
icing Isaac, except that an
angel didn't come to the res-
cue. Think of Theodor Herzl.
One of his children committed
suicide, another was mentally
ill, one died from drugs, and
perhaps his mission may have
been a contributing factor. But
without Herzl would we have
had a Jewis state?
"I don't judge Ben Yehuda,
because through him we
achieved the modern Hebrew
language. Ben Yehuda sin-
cerely believed he was fighting
a war for Hebrew, and his son
was on the front line. His story
reminds me of the works of the
prophet Jeremiah: "Then there
is in my heart as it were a
burning fire shut up in my
bones, and I weary myself to
hold it in, but cannot.

Israel 42-A Celebration
Israel 42, this year's edition of a commu-
nitywide celebration of the Jewish State's
independence day, assumes greater impor-
tance because of the intense political prob-
lems confronting Israel.
A myriad of entertainment, Israeli food
and other Israeli products should lure a
large audience to the May 13 observance at
the downtown Wolfson Campus of Miami-
Dade Community College.
Special events for Mothers' Day and
activities geared to children as well as
seniors are planned.
But, as leaders of the Zionist Movement
pointed out, this is a great opportunity for
all of us to demonstrate our solidarity with
Many American Jewish organizations are
concerned with both settlements in the ter-
ritories and the move of 150 Jews into the
Christian Quarter. And these organizations
are joined by hundreds of thousands of
Israelis in demanding electoral reform for
future voting there.
But these differences must not alter the
strong bonds which unite the interlocking
destinies of the Jewish people and the
State of Israel.

Settlers Give Moral Victory
New State Seen Threat
Israel cannot allow the estab-
lishment of a Palestinian state
on the West Bank because it
would lead to the destruction
of the Jewish State, a study by
a Jerusalem-based think-tank
There is a consensus in
Israel that for strategic and
military reasons, it is
"unthinkable" to agree to a
Palestinian state, said Robert
Loewenberg, president of the
Institute for Advanced Strate-
gic and Political Studies.
International Church Body Condemns Settlers
GENEVA (JTA) The World Council of Churches
issued a blistering condemnation of the move by Jewish
settlers into the Christian quarter of Jerusalem's Old City,
and has thanked Moslem leaders for "affirming their
solidarity with the Christians."
NEW YORK If Israel's
Arab enemies had wanted to
devise a global strategy for
isolating the Jewish State
from world Christian public
opinion, they could not have
done it more effectively than
did the 150 Orthodox Jewish
settlers who occupied the
Greek Orthodox St. John's
Hospice in Jerusalem's Chris-
tian quarter.
During the past week, I
rke at length with some of
most prominent leaders of
the major Christian denomina-
tions Greek Orthodox,
Roman Catholic, Evangelical,
mainline Protestant. Without
exception, they expressed
deep feelings ranging from
"upset" to "outrage" over the
settlers' action.
The anger focused on what
"the squatters" did; when they
did it during the highly
sensitive Christian Holy Week;
where they did it in the
established Christian quarter
in East Jerusalem; and why
they did it.
"We do not question the
right of Jews to live in East
Jerusalem," one Roman
Catholic scholar, a great friend
of Israel and the Jewish peo-
ple, said to me. "But this
group cannot deny Christians
the right to live in areas sur-
rounding their holiest
The fact that elements in the
Israeli government at first
denied having anything to do
with financial support for leas-
ing the St. John's hospice, and
then were forced to admit that
key ministers were involved in
the payment for the lease may
well have far-reaching conse-
quences for Israel's credibility.
Mayor Teddy Kollek
succeeded in building great

Farber Bars Revisionist Historians
From His Program
NEW YORK Barry Far-
ber, whose Carolina drawl and
strong right-wing views have
been a talk radio fixture for
more than three decades, is
now standing up to revisionist
Trying to convince Ameri-
cans that the Holocaust never
happened can "make for excit-
ing radio, and very few talk-
show hosts will refuse that,"
says Farber. But it's not for
Heard six days a week on
WABC in the New York listen-
ing area, and seven days on
national network radio, Far-
ber said he rejected the
advances of revisionists when
he learned that "this was a
well-financed international
The talk-show host reported
his tussles with the revisionists
at a meeting in New York of
the Association of Orthodox
Jews in Communications,
according to a report in the
Jewish Voice, a monthly peri-
odical published in Englewood,
"Freedom of speech involves
my freedom not to put danger-
ous people on the air. This is
my policy locally and nation-
ally, he told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency.
Occasionally, standard pre-
screening will fail to prevent a
revisionist determined to air
his views from sneaking on
Farber's show.
In such instances, his tech-
nique is to respond to the
revisionist's assertions with
documented reports from
Nazis who took part in the
mass murders.
He told the meeting that he
has been contacted by revision-
ists who begged to be inter-
viewed because their goal is to
"prove" that the Holocaust is
nothing more than "a Jewish
mirror trick conjured up to
make the world forgive the
Jews for 'stealing' Arab land
in the Middle East."
The revisionists infuriate
Farber, but he is more angered
by the way some Jews try to
rebut them.
"Jews become insane; they
scream and holler. The Jew
might win if the audience were
all Jewish, but that's not who
is listening," said Farber, who
is Jewish.
He suggested that when the
revisionists address the sopho-
more class "at say, the Univer-
sity of Alabama," they do
beautifully, "because the 19-
year-olds love to be courted.
"The (Jewish) screamers
lose the sophomore class."
He said the problem stems in
part from the fact that almost
every Holocaust survivor has a
history with "a few small
holes,' which the revisionists
"pick upon."
"Who cares whether the
Nazis arrived on a Wednesday
or a Thursday; the important
thing is that the Nazis dest-
royed a Jewish witness' whole
family," he said, calling the
tactic "a lawyer's trick, used
to destroy the credibility of a
But, Farber told the meet-
ing, "if the revisionist can
show that the survivor said the
Germans arrived on Wednes-
day, the revisionist can
attempt to prove that the Jews
is a liar and cannot be trusted
about anything, including
whether or not the Holocaust
took place."
Farber also criticized liberal
Jews in the United States
concerned with "free speech
rights" for Nazis.
Calling such concern "hypo-
critical, he said Jewish attor-
neys defend Nazis because
they believe the Nazis are pow-
"If you would not support
them when they are big, don't
support them when they are
small," Farber declared.

The Negev: A Battleground For Competing Interests
Cuban Hebrew Congregation Miami
When Ben-Gurion retired
from politics and went to live
in Sde Boker, he lent an aura
of romance to the Negev.
Although the pioneering spirit
is very much alive and well in
Israel's southern desert, the
reality of life there is far from
romantic. The desert can be
turned into productive land
only with the investment of
hard labor, unyielding deter-
mination and twentieth cen-
tury high technology.
But the Negev is much more
than a potential solution for
overpopulated urban centers
and limited northern arable
land. It is the only place in the
country where you can refresh
your soul in the magnificent
silence that pervades the
trackless desert. No car horns,
no bus fumes, no Mercedes
diesel clouds. Nothing crosses
your path except an occasional
Nubian Ibex or Dorcas Gazelle.
And the only marks in the sand
are paw prints. No plastic, no
styrofoam, no back hoes, no
In recent months the fragile
ecosystem of the Negev is
being threatened, albeit by
well meaning and important
interests in Israel. The Israeli
Air Force was forced to relo-
cate two of its major bases
from Sinai to the Negev and
needs to expand its firing
ranges and flyways.
The Voice of America has
proposed a $300 million dollar
broadcasting installation in the
Arava (rift valley) that would
swallow 2,000 acres of national
park. Its purpose, to beam
propaganda programs into
southern Russia, has already
been made obsolete by Gorba-
chev's latest addition to Gla-
Such a proiect would inter-
fere with the semi-annual
migration of Europe's bird
population to Africa along the
rift valley. It would also inter-
fere with Israeli Airforce
transmission systems, forcing
the airforce to discontinue its
training missions in the area.
The airforce, in turn, would be
forced to appropriate part of
the Machtesh Gadol nature
reserve (the Grand Canyon of
Israel) to replace its lost air-
space in the Arava.
The Machtesh Gadol is
located about half-way
between Tel-Aviv and Eilat
along the Beer she va, Mitzpe
Ramon highway. Before the
Arava highway that connects
the Dead Sea area with Eilat
was built, it served as the main
route to the Red Sea resort.
The government is about to
upgrade this highway in an
effort to increase tourism in
the central Negev and the
Machtesh Gadol will become
the major attraction of the

Several weeks ago, I had the
good fortune to visit the
Machtesh Gadol nature
reserve by invitation of the
Israeli Nature Reserve
Authority. A visitor's center
and museum sit alongside the
town of Mitzpe Ramon, at the
edge of the crater.
The town is one of the nicest
in Israel, and it boasts the
newest and most modern
Youth Hostel in the country.
The hostel is comparable to
any good hotel and is a meet-
ing point for visitors to the
area. Most people spend a few
hours in the museum in order
to acquaint themselves with
the geological features of the
crater. It is one of the finest
small museums in a country
that is filled with wonderful
But the crater must be expe-
rienced from inside not just
from its edge. Accordingly, I
contacted the chief ranger,
Aryeh Cohen, who was to
serve as my expert guide for
the expedition into the Grand
Canyon of Israel.
At dawn we strapped tightly
into his jeep, and off we
bounced, east along the edge
and then south into the crater.
We soon picked up the mile
markers of the ancient Nabat-
ean spice road. The Nabateans
were the premier merchants
and freight forwarders of the
region before the Roman con-
quest. They made fortunes in
trans-shipping precious oils,
perfumes and spices from Ara-
bia via their capital city of
Petra across the Negev to the
port of Gaza and onward to the
entire Mediterranean world.
The 50-mile route from
Petra in Jordan across the
Machtesh Gadol to the coast
will one day become a trip for
dedicated hikers (trekkers)
and mountain bike enthusi-
asts. For the moment it is
possible to do a shortened ver-
sion of the trip from the Jorda-
nian border to the edge of the
Gaza strip concentrating on
the Machtesh. The remnants
of guard towers, caravanserai
and watering stations are in
evidence all along the crater
Animals mentioned in the
Bible, and extinct or close to
extinction for a century, roam
freely among the acaccia and
terebinth trees, sustaining
themselves on the high desert
shrubbery. Onagers, Oryx,
Ibex, addax, gazelle, caracals,
foxes, wolves and leopards are
just a few examples of species
rescued from annihilation.
Eagles, phoenix vultures and
other giant raptors glide
above, hunting the smaller
desert rodents.
Only an army patrol seems
out of place. We have sur-
prised them in the act of eating
unch. For Israeli soldiers,
unch is a messy affair. Orange
peels, soda bottles and the
ubiquitous "plastic baggies"
are scattered about. If not for
our stern warnings this flot-
sam of the twentieth century
would undoubtedly have been
left for the examination of the
next century's archaeologists.
As a "deputized ranger for
the day" I did my duty by
ordering an Israeli officer to
clean up the area or be faced
with a stiff fine. The Machtesh
is in beautiful condition due to
the major efforts of the ran-
gers. In a country not exactly
known for its concern for lit-

meeting in Germany has been significantly scaled down.
tering, the crater is a shining
example of what determina-
tion and tough enforcement
can accomplish.
During the course of the day,
I began to peel off layers of
sweaters and jackets as the
winter sun rose higher. The
high desert is given to temper-
ature extremes. Only the hard-
iest of people can exist here,
and only especially talented
people can prosper here. The
Nabateans and now the
Israelis are such gifted people.
In the near future the Grand
Canyon of Israel will draw
hundreds of thousands of tour-
ists. They will come and fall in
love with the exquisite beauty
of the natural surroundings.
They will stand in awe of the
region's past history and they
will admire the conservation
accomplishments of the pre-
The Machtesh belongs nei-
ther to the army nor to the
airforce, nor to the miners, nor
to land developers. It belongs
to the people of Israel and to
nature lovers the world over.
It belongs to people who
respect all of G-d's creations; it
belongs to those who are
pledged to preserve the natu-
ral environment. It belongs to
our future.

Vote Against Merger With Men
B'nai B'rith Women
Tap Harriet Horwitz
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
More than 600 delegates at
B'nai B'rith Women's biennial
convention unanimously
agreed to drop key phrases
from a resolution which
resulted in an estrangement
with B'nai B'rith Interna-
tional, but firmly denounced a
merger between the two.
"If you had been at the
convention and heard the
women speak out from the
floor, then you would know
that merger is not in the ques-
tion," said new BBW presi-
dent Harriet Horwitz.
Horwitz, a Miami resident
since 1956, became the first
Floridian to serve as BBW
president. Expressing opti-
mism that BBW would remain
a vibrant organization, Hor-
witz admitted the simmering
dispute between the women's
division and the B'nai B'rith
umbrella organization is far
from settled.
The dispute erupted last
year when BBW passed a reso-
lution declaring its autonomy
and separation from the male-
dominated BBI, yet maintain-
ing its desire for affiliation
with BBI.

EMOR "And the Lord said unto Moses: Speak unto the priests
the sons of Aaron, and say unto them: There shall none defile
himself for the dead among his people; except for his kin that is
near unto him, for his mother, and for his father, and for his son,
and for his daughter, and for his brother; and for his sister a
virgin. They shalt not take a woman that is a harlot, or
profaned; neither shall they take a woman put away from her
husband" (Leviticus 21.1-7). The high priest "shall take a wife in
her virginity. A widow, or one divorced, or a profaned woman, or
a harlot, these shall he not take" (Leviticus 21.13-1J,). No priest
with a blemish might approach the altar to offer a sacrifice the
impure priest might not even approach the holy food nor eat it.
No animal with a blemish might be an offering.
The seasons of the holy convocations are then described: "The
seventh day is a sabbath of solemn rest... ye shall do no manner
of work ... In the first month, on the fourteenth day ... at dusk,
is the Lord's passover... on the fifteenth day of the same month
is the feast of unleavened bread seven days ye shall eat
unleavened bread" (Leviticus 23.3-6). The festival of the First
Fruits (Shavuot) occurs on the fiftieth day after the first day of
Passover. "In the seventh month, in the first day of the month,
shall be a solemn rest unto you, a memorial proclaimed with the
blast of horns, a holy convocation. Ye shall do no manner of
servile work.. Howbeit on the tenth day of this seventh month
is the day of atonement. and ye shall afflict your souls... And
ye shall do no manner of work in that same day; for it is a day of
atonement, to make atonement for you before the Lord your God.
... On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the feast of
tabernacles for seven days unto the lord" (Leviticus 23.21,-3J,).
"And ye shall take you on the first day the fruit of goodly trees,
branches of palm-trees, and boughs of thick trees, and willows of
the brook, and ye shall rejoice before the Lord your God ... it is a
statute for ever in your generations.. And Moses declared unto
the children of Israel the appointed seasons of the Lord"
(Leviticus 2340-41, U).

Top Refuseniks Claim Aliyah Delays
angry controversy has erupted
over charges by three-well
known aliyah activists that
Israeli authorities are deliber-
ately slowing the pace of emi-
gration from the Soviet Union.
The Jewish Agency retorted
by announcing that 24,000
immigrants have arrived in the
last three months.
Statistics were disclosed by
spokesman Gad Ben-Ari. The
agency and the government
have been refraining for
months from revealing the
numbers of olim or the routes
they take, reportedly for
security reasons.
But this time, official ire was
aroused by the allegations of
Ida Nudel, Yosef Mendelevich
and Professor Yirmiyahu (Her-
man) Branover, long-term
refuseniks whose struggles to
get to Israel made them living
The three held a news con-
ference here at which they
leveled charges which Ben-Ari
denounced as "grotesque
falsehood and chutzpah."
Nudel blamed "all political
parties" for alleged delays in
aliyah and absorption. But she
singled out the Labor Party,
contending that it feared that
the preponderance of newcom-
ers from the Soviet Union
would vote for the right-wing
Nudel, who survived impris-
onment and internal exile in
the Soviet Union before com-
ing to Israel, accused the
entire government hierarchy
of putting would-be immi-
grants into a "Kafkaesque
She demanded to know why
Israeli officials insist they
migrate only by way of Budap-
est or Bucharest, which inevit-
ably reduces their numbers
because of the paucity of
"Why can't they go through
Vienna or Helsinki? Why can't
they leave by rail, or on foot?"
she asked.
"If they (the Israelis) are
afraid of them dropping out,
let them make Israel more
attractive," Nudel said.
Branover called the situation
"a crime against the nation."
Declaring that the potential
aliyah from the Soviet Union
included hundreds of thou-
sands of academically trained
persons who were "a gift
worth $20 billion" to the Jew-
ish state, he said the initial
welcome of the newcomers
was warm and friendly.
