Third World Students
Infect U.S. Campuses With Anti-Israel Hatred
Jewish student lesder at the
University of California-Los
Angeles contends that some
minority and Third World
students express an underlying
anti-Israel bias in destructive
ways. And she believes the univer-
sity administration could do more
to quell it
"I hesitate to use the word anti-
Semitism, because it has been
wildly denied by those who call
themselves anti-Zionists," said
Camille Angel, editor of Ha'am,
the Jewish student newspaper.
"There is a very hostile at-
mosphere between those students
who are for and those who are
against Israel."
ANGEL TOLD of three hostile
incidents in particular. Last year,
after the black student newspaper
"printed racist, anti-Semitic
stuff," a sign on its door said,
"Zionist Infiltrators Get Out,"
Angel noted. University ad-
ministrators did not seek the
sign's removal, she said, after re-
quests by Jewish students.
She said the protesting students
subsequently were intimidated at
student government meetings,
and one student's name was
spray-painted on a university
building above the words, "Zionist
Pigs Should Be Killed."
On the other hand, Angel con-
tended, when Chicano students
protested that a fraternity's "Te-
quila Sunrise Party" was racist,
"the administration promptly
came out against theme parties."
Incidents in recent weeks were
aimed at Angel and Ha'am. A
campus kiosk at which Ha'am is
available was burned. Two days
later, an unidentified male told
her over the phone that "Ha'am
must fold." Later that week,
Angel said a man knocked on her
apartment door and, before he
left, declared that he wanted to
talk to her about Ha'am.
"THERE IS a network of
Palestinian and Afro-American
students, and they are gaining
strength," she said.
A different appraisal was of-
fered by UCLA vice chancellor for
student relations, Dr. Allen
Yarnell. He said "the problem of
tension is much more complex
than anti-Semitism. To focus on
that is to miss the diversity here."
Reports show that 26 percent of
the 30,000 students are Jewish.
Angel and her three friends said
their confrontation with anti-
Semitism have helped to bolster
their Jewish identity.
'Guide' for Jewish Traveler
U.S. Wants
UN Resolution
The United States Am-
bassador to the United Na-
tions, Vernon Walters, vow-
ed last Tuesday that the
U.S. will not "rest" until the
1975 General Assembly
resolution equating Zionism
with racism is rescinded.
The resolution "remains a great
scandal" he asserted during a
breakfast meeting with Seymour
Reich, the president of B'nai
B'rith International at the Doral
Inn here.
Walters assured Reich that the
U.S. will walk out of the General
Assembly if Israel's credentials
were ever rejected. He said that
by now every member of the UN
knows that the U.S. will react
strongly to any attempt to sus-
pend Israel's membership in the
world body.
DURING THE 90-minute
meeting, Walters and Reich also
discussed the issues of terrorism
and Soviet Jews.
Walters said he was hopeful
that the Security Council will pass
within the next 10 days s strong
and "binding" resolution condem-
ning terrorism. Walters is this
month's president of the Security
The Ambassador said he feels a
personal commitment to combat
intolerance wherever it takes
place. He said he fails to unders-
tand why the Soviet Union does
not allow those Jews who want to
emigrate to do so.

The original
Declaration of Independence.
There was a time in history when
Man's right to independent worship
went unrecognized.
But,2145 years event
occurred that firmly established the
principle in the consciousness of Man.
In the year 167 B.C.E.,the first
war in history was fought to preserve a
peoples'way of life :their laws ;stand-
ards of morality ;and above all.the reli-
gion revealed to them in the wilderness
of Sinai more than a thousand years
The Jewish people led by the Mac-
cabees.fought to break the religious
tyranny of the Assyrian-Greek conquer-
ors of ancient Judea who threatened
the very survival of the Jewish way of
The Maccabees and their followers
struggled not for personal gain,and
broader influence.but to preserve the
Jewish Faith.
Their ultimate victory was a tri-
umph of justice and human
brought to humanity's attention an
ideal that transcends life itself.
Chanukah is the Jewish Festival
that commemorates that victory. For
eight nights, commencing with the 25th
day of Kislev.a candle is lit in every
Jewish home. As the candle
gi ves hope that the faith of the Jews
will one day serve to banish tyranny
and oppression from the earth.
It is a yearly recurring declara-
tion of mankind's independences mem-
orable reassertion of the God-given
right of human beings to live and wor-
ship in freedom.
Chanukah is called the Festival of illuminates is the
Cure light of freedom that glows in the
eartof Man.
It's what makes us Jews.

There's Still Time
To Secure Pledges
As 1986 draws to a close, UJA/Federation
campaigns throughout the country, in-
cluding our own community campaign, are
in the midst of year-end cash collection ef-
forts to secure payments on pledges that
support vital social welfare programs for
Jews in need worldwide. The 1986 UJA goal
for overseas needs is $400 million.
In our community, agencies of our Federa-
tion are also hardpressed to handle the
demands upon their services. Now is the
time to affirm our commitments to Federa-
tion so that our local agencies and national
UJA can get on with their humanitarian
Last year, the United Jewish Ap-
peal/Federation campaign reached the
highest peacetime level in its history, $400.8
million which included $48 million for
Operation Moses, the special campaign for
Ethiopian Jews.
Tax Savings
This year, more is needed to continue our
humanitarian efforts locally, nationally and
overseas. But minimally, it is estimated that
it will be essential to reach a $400 million
goal in order at least to hold the line.
Larry J. Hochberg, UJA's national cash
chairman, suggests a means of achieving a
best December ever. According to
Hochberg, it is a good idea to bear in mind
maximizing 1986 tax savings through cash
payments while tax rates are still high
through the end of the year. On Jan. 1, tax
rates will drop for most Americans. This
means that tax savings on UJA contribu-
tions may be greater mis year than next.
Making our cash payments now to fulfill
our commitments can help us personally.
Even more, it can help our brothers and
sisters in need here in our community,
across the nation and in Israel.
Debate Over Taba
The debate over Taba, the splinter of land
on the Red Sea between Israel and Egypt, is
now going to international arbitration, and
both sides have agreed to abide by the
result. This is about as civilized a stand bet-
ween the two countries as has been apparent
in a long time.
The problem continues to be President
Hosni Mubarak's problems. He would like to
feel more comfortable among his Arab state
brethren, but like it or not, he has inherited
the peace accord between his government
and Israel established in the Sadat-Begin
And so, Mubarak's stance has been more
than a slightly shaky one ever since his in-
auguration into office following President
Sadat's assassination. In effect, his
diplomacy has been fashioned around a ques-
tion: how to pretend to be abiding by the ac-
cord at the same time that he cozied up to
such perennial pains as, say, Yasir Arafat?
All of this, mind you, while Mubarak tilted
strenuously against Egypt's increasingly
volatile Moslem Brotherhood, sat by
morosely before a growing spectre of Egyp-
tian economic chaos and elected to withdraw
his ambassador to Israel, a frank violation of
<* South Srowsrd
MM Put>u*i
> irwovfi mh
Eiacutw* EW1 Ol S^WNa*!* IMougn AuguW
the Camp David Accord, during Prime
Minister Begin's Operation Peace for Galilee
in Lebanon.
More recently, Mubarak has quietly -
very quietly moved to reinstitute high-
level diplomatic relations with Israel at the
same time that he has watched with some
mounting excitement yet another Yasir
Arafat-PLO resurrection in Lebanon.
Shamir's 'Fault'
Will Mubarak now use Israel's role in the
U.S. sale of arms to Iran as one more excuse
to avoid his own problems by making a new
problem between himself and Israel? In join-
ing Jordan King Hussein's "bitter disap-
pointment" over the arms sale, Mubarak has
sent a signal that he may. In an interview in
the French newspaper Le Monde last week,
he "explained" his latest refusal to visit
Israel this way: it is Prime Minister
Shamir's "attitude" that is at fault.
What gripes Mubarak is that Shamir said
at a recent news conference: "If Mubarak
does not want to visit Israel, let him stay
away." What irked Shamir was Mubarak's
private note to him in which he explained
that he would go to Israel but not to
Jerusalem because "we do not recognize it
as Israel's capital."
Mubarak's last word on the subject? The
future of any Israeli-Egyptian dialogue
depends on the flexibility of Shamir, adding:
"I hope he will show himself as flexible as
(former Prime Minister) Shimon Peres has
In October, when the Unity Government's
rotation took place, we said in these columns
that the difference between Shamir and
Peres would be more in style than in
substance. Indeed, style is precisely what
Mubarak complained about in the premier-
ship of Shamir. But then, President
Mubarak is no piece of silk himself.

Number 36
Frances Steloff, the
99-year-old former owner of
a New York landmark, the
Gotham Book Mart, has fil-
ed suit against the
American Friends of the
Hebrew University charg-
ing that the organization
defrauded her out of her
midtown Manhattan
building after she offered
AFHU a million-dollar gift.
Since 1920, Steloff has owned,
managed and lives on the floor
above the Gotham Book Mart, a
literary jewel in the center of
Manhattan's diamond district on
West 47th Street. The Gotham
specializes in unusual books, ex-
perimental or controversial
literary works, poetry, theatre,
film and Eastern spirituality.
STELOFF IS credited with
boosting the careers of now legen-,
dary authors when they were little
known or unaccepted, including
James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, William
Carlos Williams, Gertrude Stein
and Ezra Pound. Steloff defied
the censors and sold James
Joyce's "Ulysses" in the Gotham.
She smuggled D.H. Lawrence's
"Lady Chatterly's Lover" into
the country when it was banned.
She befriended some of the most
celebrated and controversial
literati of this century.
The Gotham Book Mart was '
born in 1920 at 128 W. 45th
Street, just a few blocks from its
present location. At 33, Steloff
founded the shop with $100 and
less than 200 books. In 1923, she
moved the Gotham to 41 W. 47th
Street where it grew into a center
not only for the sale of avant
garde literature, but as a gather-
ing place for struggling artists
and writers.
AFTER THE landlord refused
to renew her lease in 1946, Steloff
searched desperately for a new
home for the Gotham but found
the real estate prices beyond her
Three of Steloff s friends then
approached Columbia University,
one of the city's largest lan-
downers, to ask for a building to
house the Gotham. Columbia of-
fered her the building at 41 W.
47th Street. Steloff bought the
five-story brownstone now under
dispute from Columbia in 1946 for
In 1967, Steloff, then 80, sold
the Gotham Book Mart to An-
dreas Brown, a California
bibliographer, rare book appraiser
and a loyal Gotham customer. She
entrusted Brown to preserve and
continue what she called her life's
But Steloff still owned the five-
story brownstone at 41 W. 47th
Street, where both she and Brown
lived in apartments above the
bookstore. The bookstore occupies
the ground floor, and the base-
ment once housed Steloff s most
valued literary treasures. One
floor above the bookstore is
devoted to a gallery where the
James Joyce Society, which
Steloff founded, meets
THE DISPUTE which has
resulted in Steloff s case against
AFHU began about seven years
ago when she decided to sell the
building to Andreas Brown to in-
sure the Gotham Book Mart's
Steloff, in 1979, agreed to sell
Brown the building for its fair
market value at the time, an
estimated $1 million, according to
an affidavit filed in the case by
Steloff s attorney Martin Gold.
She decided to donate the pro-
ceeds of the sale to AFHU to set
up a scholarship and fellowship
fund for students and to sponsor
speeches at the Hebrew Universi-
ty by prominent writers. Steloff
planned to donate the money in
the name of her parents, who
were religious Jews.
AFHU then advised Steloff that
she could increase her gift by giv-
ing AFHU the building and
avoiding a capital gains tax of
roughly $250,000 she would incur
by selling it to Brown.
Then, according to Steloffs
lawsuit, she made a verbal agree-
ment with representatives of
AFHU to make the gift of the
building conditional on favorable
lease terms and an option for
Gotham to buy the building for $1
AFHU Attorney David
Ellenhom said no verbal agree-
ment was ever made. But in an in-
terview with the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, Steloff
seemed to have a sharp recollec-
tion of the events some seven
years ago.
SHE RECALLED a meeting in
March 1980, while on vacation in
Florida, with Charles Feinberg,
vice president of AFHU, to
review a draft of the agreement.
During this meeting, Steloff
told the JTA she crossed out por-
tions of the agreement which she
did not accept, including a provi-
sion to allow AFHU to sell the
building "at the highest price ob-
tainable." Steloff said she
understood at the meeting with
Feinberg that the draft would be
amended to include a lease and op-
tion to buy for Gotham. Steloff
signed the draft.
Although a second ageement
followed, also signed by Steloff, it
did not contain any provisions for
the resale of the building to the
Gotham Book Mart, she said.
Following the meeting with
Feinberg, Steloff spelled out in a
series of letters to AFHU her ex-
plicit wish that Gotham Book
Mart be given the option to buy
the building for $1 million. As the
years went by and the option or
new amended agreement never
materialized, Steloff became in-
creasingly agitated in her
IN AUGUST, 1984 Steloff
wrote to Feinberg, "I naturally
expected further discussions
about the matter I objected to. It
is certainly not a new objection,
nor was it an afterthought. It was
clearly understood at that first
reading that the objectionable
part would be revised. I never in-
tended that the building should be
used for real estate speculation or
offered only to the highest
By late 1985 Steloff said she
demanded that AFHU return the
building to her unless she received
a guarantee that Gotham would be
given an option to buy for $1
The building is now worth about
$2.5 million. Brown said diamond
dealers come in almost daily offer-

Sydney Schanberg sat sip-
ping a drink in the lounge of
a hotel. It was late at night,
and a pianist on a small
stage behind Schanberg
played the sort of tunes that
went well with the hour

It was a relaxing moment, but
Schanberg did not seem especially
relaxed. Maybe for Schanberg he
was relaxed. But one got the im-
pression that Schanberg lives by
other standards than most people

rigorous standards, more moral
"SCHANBERG is an ex-
oskeleton,' said one New York
media observer. "He wears it all
on the outside. He is very, very in-
tense. But he is also a very caring
guy. He's what journalists were
like before they discovered the
upscale world."
Exoskeleton, maybe. But
Schanberg insists he is not the
caricature that New Yorker film
critic Pauline Kael thought she
saw of him in the 1984 film, "The
Killing Fields." The film was bas-
ed on the saga of Schanberg and
his friend, Dith Pran, under the

Schanberg said Waterson had por-
trayed him accurately and that
Kael's vision of the film (and of
him) was off kilter.

"because my whole life wasn't
there. Large pieces are missing.
The piece that was shown was
About 20 minutes before,
Schanberg had finished a two-
hour talk at Loyola College in
Baltimore. It was a good, earnest
talk, full of the sort of crabbing
common to decent journalists (of
whom there are few): The press is
"timid." The press is "super-
ficial." The press is obsessed with
"trivia," easily swayed by trends
and, especially, by a current
White House leadership that
"tells us our selfish instincts are
A responsible journalist, said
Schanberg, is an "outsider." He
has a rare independence. His
views are not molded by popular
trends. He does not socialize with
the very people he writes about.
He "makes it harder for people to
look away" from the unsightly.
SCHANBERG called himself an
"outsider," and, considering his
devotion to his craft to his call-
ing of journalism, he probably
revels in being one. It is probably
being on the outside that gives
Schanberg the impression of be-

are skeptical. They hold their
It may be time for Schanberg to
loosen up a bit. The greatest bat-
tles of his life are probably behind
him (or, at least, the most public
battles of his life).
He has tilted at enemies as large
as governments and the most
powerful newspaper in this coun-
try and he generally comes out
smelling darn good. Behind
Schanberg are the slaughters of
Cambodia,, which he covered for
The New York Times.
Forty percent of the Cambo-
dians died after the war. Those
who were not killed by the Khmer
Rouge lost their lives to famine
and dis
AND BEHIND Schanberg is an
exhausting search for his assis-
tant, Dith Pran, who spent four
years in Cambodia under the
Khmer Rouge. Pran, educated
and resourceful, had been in-
dispensable to Schanberg's
coverage of Cambodia. Trapped in
his native country, Pran worked
in rice fields, dressed in a dirty
shirt and wore no shoes.
Once, he was almost beaten to
death for stealing a handful of
rice. Everywhere, he saw "killing
grounds" bodies in wells,
bodies in fields, bodies piled near
jails. He escaped from Cambodia
in 1979.
Now a staff photographer at the
Times in New York, Pran lives in
Flatbush, has a mortgage, two
children in college and has been
"He's a complete American,"
said Schanberg.
AND ALSO behind Schanberg
are the internecine wars of The
New York Times. Schanberg quit
the Times a year ago when the
paper scrubbed his twice-a-week
op-ed column.
"They have stifled an opinion on
a page that is supposedly devoted
to diversity of opinion," grumbled
Schanberg as he packed his bags.
He had started at the paper 26
years before as s copyboy.
A self-described "perfec-
tionist," Schanberg had probably
never been an easy person to have
on the Times' staff, at least during
his last years there: Its standards
were not his standards, its mission
was not his mission, its quest for
power was not his quest.
Schanberg was not interested in
"interpreting the Establishment
for the Establishment," as he in-
creasingly saw the Times' role. He
preferred to tweak the Establish-
ment, to remind it of the vanities
of power and of the poor and the
hungry and the homeless. Instead,
the paper was giving ever more
column inches to spiffy
restaurants, fine cheeses and

WITH THE paper's tilt to the
political neo-right, its power elite
cooled toward his column.
"Although the atmosphere was
growing hostile," Schanberg said,
"there was not a direct land of
hostility. I knew about certain
complaints from time to time from
people I wrote about. Once in the
four and a half years I did the col-
umn, I got a letter from the

tone of a column I had written
about (New York real estate ty-
coon) Donald Trump. Throughout,
I had called him 'Young Donald.'

the criticism of Trump, not the
tone of it"

Wipes Back Tears
After Waiting for 8 Years,
Brawe's Day Finally Comes
Former refusenik Rimma
Brawe arrived in New York
last Friday (Dec. 19) after
what she called "waiting for
this day to come for eight
years." Speaking in fluent
English, the 32-year-old
woman, who is suffering
from advanced ovarian
cancer, wiped back tears as
she embraced her mother,
Khanna Anbinder, whom
she had not seen in six
"This is the happiest day of my
life," said Brawe at a press con-
ference at JFK Airport here Fri-
day afternoon. This sentiment
was echoed by her petite mother,
a retired pediatrician who has
been living in Rochester, N.Y.,
since 1980.
BRAWE AND her husband
Vladimir, who emigrated with
her, were met by a large retinue
of supporters, including her
sister, Larisa Shapiro, a computer
scientist living in Rochester who
accompanied her sister from Vien-
na; Larisa's husband, Boris; Leon
Charny, a Soviet emigre who has
been publicizing Brawe's plight
as well as that of his brother in
Moscow, Benjamin Charny,
another cancer patient refusenik;
Gerald Batist, a Montreal on-
cologist who has worked tirelessly
since last spring for Brawe's
release and that of other cancer
patients; and Sens. Alfonse
D'Amato (R., N.Y.) and Frank
Lautenberg (D., N.J.), both in-
strumental in pushing for their
Also in attendance were
members of the Rochester Jewish
Federation, who wore placards
with photographs of other cancer
patient refuseniks.
The Brawes received then-
visas Dec. 16 following a month-
long period of publicity after the
Soviet Ambassador to the
Helsinki Accord follow-up talks in
Vienna announced their visas and
following which the Brawes
repeatedly sought to obtain these
visas, which were delayed.
couple flew to Vienna last Thurs-
day, accompanied on their flight
from Moscow by Sen. Gary Hart
(D., Colo.) who, while visiting the
Soviet Union, met with Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev.
The Brawes were accompanied
by D'Amato on their return flight
from Vienna. The New York
Senator had been in constant con-
tact with their family, as well as
with Leon Charny and Batist,
about the other cancer patients.
D'Amato eased the Brawes' im-
migration process and customs
clearance with the State Depart-
ment in Vienna. He was there as
chairman of the Commission on
Security and Cooperation in
Europe, which did preparatory
work for the Helsinki talks.
D'Amato called Brawe's relase
"a victory of hope over despair, a
victory of courage over indif-
ference and a victory of love over
disdain." He remarked on the
coincidence of Brawe's release
and that of Soviet dissident An-
drei Sakharov, who was told by
phone Friday by Gorbachev that
his six-year internal exile in the
closed city of Gorky was ended
and he could return to Moscow.

Sen. Moynihan
Raps Administration's Basement Foreign Diplomacy
I am honored indeed I
am thrice honored to be
the recipient of the 1986
Liberty Award. I am thrice
honored because of what the
Liberty Award stands for,
the stature of those who
give the award, and the
singular group of in-
dividuals who have been
previous recipients.
To receive the Liberty Award in
the year of the Lady's Centennial
is a particular honor to one whose
grandfather, Jack, arrived on
these shores from County Kerry
just one-hundred years ago. He
was one of the 20-million im-
migrants who arrived in this coun-
try between 1870 and 1910. Em-
ma Lazarus should excuse the
observation, but they were hardly
the "wretched refuse of ancient
lands ... homeless and
millions like him, were part of the
most extraordinary, enterprising
voluntary migration in human
history. They left an old world to
help build a new one and they
did so with a vigor and dynamism
that gave new meaning to the pro-
mise of American democracy.
I am especially pleased to be
honored by the Hebrew Immigra-
tion Aid Society. Millions of im-
migrants to this country could
testify that the two fondest
memories of their first hours in
this country were of the great
statue representing liberty, and of
the devoted HIAS representatives
who translated the abstract
message of liberty into such
tangibles as a warm meal,
clothing, assistance in resettle-
ment and employment counseling.
Since 1881, your antecedent,
the Hebrew Emigrant Aid Socie-
ty, provided these services (first
at Castle Garden and then at Ellis
Island) to more than three-million
Jewish immigrants from Europe
and around the world.
Sen. Moynihan (D., N.Y.) wrote this address in response
to his being presented with the HIAS Liberty Award on Dec.
2 in New York. Senator Moynihan's daughter, Maura,
delivered the address in his stead. The Sen. stayed behind in
Washington to attend hearings of the Senate Select Commit-
tee on Intelligence.
IT IS A measure of the high
esteem afforded HIAS that your
agency has regularly been asked
to assist with the immigration and
absorption of such diverse non-
Jewish groups as Asian Ugan-
dans, Vietnamese boat people,
and Cuban, Cambodian and Hai-
tian refugees.
The diversity of those currently
receiving your assistance bears
testimony to the vitality of the
American promise and the mobili-
ty of the prophetic tradition from
which HIAS draws its strength
and inspiration.
Doubts Voiced He's Jewish
Orlando Postman Charges
System With Discrimination
ORLANDO A man here charged before a recent
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in-
vestigation that the U.S. Postal Service has oUscriminated
against him for more than three years because he is Jewish,
including repeated denial of a promotion.
Wayne Wright has claimed a pattern of discrimination
beginning with an injury he sustained while working for the
postal service.
TWO PHYSICIANS found his injuries warranted pay-
ment for 45 days during his recovery, but local officials
"controverted" that decision until overruled by a Depart-
ment of Labor Worker's Compensation Program claims
A supervisor wrote then in Wright's personnel file that
Wright 'is in good health and may be trying to take the
post office for a free ride."
Wright reportedly has completed supervisory training
programs with good to excellent grades, but was passed
over six times for supervisor.
HE SAID a negative job evaluation from July 1983 has
damaged his prospects. He recalled that he asked his senior
supervisor if the bad marks were due to Wright's
Jewishness. The supervisor replied, according to Wright,
"I don't know, I just don't like you."
The EEOC asked for proof of Wright's Jewishness, and
this issue remains contentious, despite the presence at the
investigation of a rabbi. EEOC said it will take up to 120
days to make a decision.
And I am moved and honored to
receive an award that has
previously been presented to so
many distinguished Americans.
I was thinking about three of
these previous awardees and
about what they would have to say
about the current crisis which
keeps me in Washington tonight.
NELSON Rockefeller received
the Liberty Award in 1970. He
served as Governor of New York
and as Vice President of the
United States. It was in the later
capacity that he chaired the
Presidential Commission on CIA
activities within the United
States. It was the Rockefeller
Commission's report that led to
the creation of the Select Con-
gressional Committees on
I served for eight years on the
Senate Committee, four of them
as Vice Chairman and I remember
discussing the importance of con-
gressional oversight with Nelson
He understood how crucial it
was for the intelligence communi-
ty to answer Congress and to obey
the law. How disturbed he would
be by an Administration that
waited 11 months before telling
Congress about an executive
order permitting the clandestine
transfer of arms to a nation
engaged in terrorism.
JACOB JAVITS received the
Liberty Award in 1969. Jack
Javits was my friend. I referred to
him as my revered colleague and
often sought his counsel even
after he left the Senate. How we
miss Jack now. He understood the
meaning of integrity integrity
between individuals and integrity
between nations.
Jacob Javits wrote the War
Powers Act. He would have had
something to say to those who ran
their own private foreign policy
out of the basement of the White
House disregarding domestic
and international law alike.
Harry Truman received the
Liberty Award in 1971. Can you
imagine what Harry Truman
would have to say about the cur-
rent situation? How would Harry
Truman, who overruled his
foreign policy advisers in 1948 to
recognize the beleaguered State
of Israel, react to those who would
rescue their beleaguered foreign
policy by scapegoating the State
of Israel?
What would he say about a
White House which keeps talking
about culpability of "another
country" while ignoring that little
sign that Harry Truman kept on
his desk in the Oval Office the
one that read "The Buck Stops
IT IS still not too late to learn
the lessons that Nelson
Rockefeller, Jacob Javits and
Harry Truman taught us. Let us
pray that those who need to
remember these lessons are
Jewish Paper
Australian Press Council has ex-
onerated one of this nation's two
weekly Jewish newspapers, the
Australian Jews News, from a
complaint brought by a journalist.
Rory McGuire of the Australian
Financial Review had demanded
an apology from The News before
the press council, a peer review
organization, according to the
Australian Jewish Times.
The conflict began with a letter
by McGuire in March, published in
the Australian Journalist Associa-
tion s (AJA) newsletter, in which
he contended that the Australian
press had a "double standard" in
criticizing South African apar-
theid but ignoring Israeli treat-
ment of Palestinians.
The letter was the focus of an
April 4 front-page story in The
News with the headline "Protest
to AJA." In it, Zionist Federation
of Australia president Mark
Leibler said his organization
would take up the letter "infor-
mally" with AJA. Leibler said
McGuire "has a history of per-
sonal obsession in regard to Israel
and this is not the first foray into
writing blatantly anti-Semitic
The press council ruled that
Leibler's remarks were "couched
in strong and hurtful terms" and
that it was difficult to understand
the description of McGuire's letter
as anti-Semitic, as it was aimed at
the Israeli government, not at all
Jews. It said such labelling ought
not to become a tactic to quash
discussion of Israeli policy.
However, the council found that
Leibler's remarks were of interest
to readers of The News and re-
quired no apology. But the council
said The News ought to have pro-
vided McGuire with a chance to
reply to the charge. At the council
hearing, The News offered to
publish an "appropriate letter of
reply" by McGuire.
We want to wish you a joyous holiday. And we hope we can help bring

Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood
Na'amat USA
Phyllis D. Luber of Lauderhill,
chief pharmacist of Walgreen
Company in Broward County, has
just returned from an 18-day mis-
sion to Israel where she was one
of 19 seminarists selected by
Na'amat USA for an in-depth
survey of Na'amat facilities in the
Jewish State.
Ms. Luber, who earned her BS
degree in Pharmacy at Nor-
theastern University College of
Pharmacy, lives in Inverrary and
is president of the Ayanot
Chapter of Na'amat USA. She
also iB the liaison officer of the
Southeast Area of the organiza-
tion to clubs comprised mainly of
young women.
A member of Temple Bat Yam
in Fort Lauderdale, she also is ac-
tive in the Fort Lauderdale
Museum of the Fine Arts.
She was one of two Floridians
who visited Israel under a pro-
gram which was co-sponsored by
the Jewish Agency and the World
Zionist Organization. The other
local area participant was Felice
Schwartz, vice president of the
South Florida Council of Na'amat
USA and executive vice president
of a Miami Beach-based public
relations and advertising agency.
She visited Na'amat facilities in
all parts of Israel, including
Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa,
Tiberias, Beersheba, Sde Boker
and virtually every part of the na-
tion. Day-care centers,
agricultural high schools, voca-
tional high schools, community
centers, Arab women's centers
and status of women centers were
among the operations toured by
the 19 young women from
throughout the United States.
They met with leaders of the
Knesset (Israeli Parliament);
Education and Cultural Minister
Yitzhak Navon, former President
of Israel; leaders of the Israel
Labor Party, Israel Government
and mayors of numerous cities
and towns. Na'amat has nore than
750,000 dues-paying members in
Israel and has active chapters in
the United States, Canada, Mex-
ico, France, Belgium, Brazil,
Argentina and numerous other

Women's American
Adopts" 60 Refuseniks
National board members of
Women's American ORT voted
unanimously, at their recent 16th
National Board Conference to
"adopt" an unusual group of 60
refuseniks presently living in
The group calls itself zo-
imapomosh, which roughly
translated, means "mutual aid."
A year ago, they formed a kind of
community very like the
Kehillah Movement in turn-of-the-
century New York to provide
communal support for one
another. They are 20 families,
mostly adults in their early 40'b,
or younger, and their children.
Although there is a great deal of
diversity in ideology, religious
observance or non-observance, in-
terest, and professions, the group
shares a fervent desire to leave
the Soviet Union. They meet once
a month for discussions and
cultural programs. Group
members see themselves as
apolitical, not seeking to change
the Soviet system, just to be
allowed to leave.
As is common among
refuseniks, most of the adults
once educators, doctors,
engineers, and performers have
been forced to work in menial jobs
or positions for which the are

on Soviet Jewry, which asked
Women's American ORT to take
on responsibility for com-
municating with them. This will
include correspondence,
telephone calls, and where possi-
ble, visits to lessen the refuseniks'
sense of isolation from Jews in
other parts of the world. In addi-
tion, Women's American ORT will
serve as advocates with American
officials, on the group's collective
ORT (Organization for
Rehabilitation Through Training)
was founded in 1880 in Russia, as
a self-help program to train Jews
in agricultural, industrial, and
craft skills. Today, ORT is the
largest non-governmental
technical education system in the
world, with schools and training
programs in 34 countries.
Women's American ORT
celebrates its 60th anniversary
this year. It is the largest of the
ORT member groups supporting
its world-wide network of schools.
Women's American ORT also
functions as a grass-roots, activist
organization, advocating prin-
ciples of pluralism, democracy,
and individual liberties.
Gears Up For Diamond Jubilee
After nearly six decades of
volunteerism, social activism, and
fundraising, Women's American
ORT may be the best kept secret
in the country, say its organiza-
tion leaders.
"It's not that people haven't
heard of us," explains Ruth Taf-
fel, vice president and chairman of
the recent 16th National Board
Conference in Atlanta. "We have
145,000 members around the
country. What we do find, is that
many people don't know the scope
of what we do."
The organization was founded
to support the ORT program of
vocational and technical training
overseas. Today, that comprises
schools and training programs in
34 countries. Women's American
ORT is also actively involved in
such issues as the campaign on
behalf of Soviet Jewry, the fight
for quality public education in the
United States, the fight to main-
tain church-state separation and
First Amendment rights, the na-
tional literacy campaign, the farm
crisis, affirmative action legisla-
tion, and the on-going fight
against anti-Semitism.
Organization leaders at the con-
ference outlined a campaign
designed to heighten public
awareness of the group's ac-
tivities and support for its pro-

No Weapons
Police searches of two yeshivas
here last Friday failed to yield ex-
plosives or the type of offensive
weapons suspected of being con-
cealed on the premises, police
sources indicated Sunday.
The targets of the raids were
the Shuvu Banim Yeshiva in the
Moslem Quarter of the Old City
and the Diaspora Yeshiva on
Mount Zion. Large quantities of
material were removed from both,
but their nature was not disclosed.
The raids followed the arrest of
Shuvu Banim student Moshe
Shalgi after a police chase late last
Wednesday night. He was releas-
ed on bail by a magistrates court
despite a police request that he be
remanded in custody.
Shalgi is suspected of par-
ticipating in recent attacks on
Arabs and in a new wave of arson

Dutch Flu Vaccine Arrives in Israel
emergency consignment of 10,000
units of flu vaccine arrived here
from The Netherlands Sunday
night and was approved by the
Health Ministry. It is being
distributed to pharmacies all over
the country.
Israel is in the grip of an Asian
flu epidemic, a particularly
virulent strain of Taiwan and
Singapore flu which claimed 89
lives in the last two weeks of
November and has put thousands
on the sick list.
The local supply of vaccine has
run out. The imported ampules
are expected to sell out in a few
hours. The Health Ministry wants
to restrict them to the high-risk
groups young children and
elderly persons suffering from
chronic ailments.
The Dutch-made vaccine sells
for 21 Shekels ($14) a dose, double
the cost of a French-made vaccine
against the normal strain of flu.
New stocks of the latter are due
here next week.

Sharansky, in U.S., Says Press
Here Too Easy on Soviets

(JTA) Natan Sharansky
warned here last week (Dec.
15) that the plight of Soviet
Jews is worsening and call-
ed for an open, vigorous
campaign in the West to
pressure the Soviet
authorities to accord the
Jews and other dissidents
their due human rights.
Speaking at a press conference
sponsored by the Israel UN Mis-
sion, the former Soviet refusenik,
who now lives in Israel, charged
that the situation of Soviet Jews
worsened in recent years, during
the leadership of Mikhail
"Many people with goodwill in
the West believe that Gorbachev
is more liberal, understanding and
tolerant than previous Soviet
leaders," Sharansky said. "But
the truth is that Gorbachev's
record on human rights is the
worst. He just has a good public
relations campaign. Good
SHARANSKY said that more
Jews are being arrested now for
teaching Hebrew than before and
that the level of Jewish emigra-
tion from the Soviet Union is now
lower than it has been in many
"About 400,000 Soviet Jews are
waiting to leave, but only 1,000
were permitted to leave this
year," Sharansky noted.
Moreover, he said, the waiting
period for an exit visa is longer
than it has been in many years.
"Some people have been waiting
for an exit visa for almost 17
years," he claimed.
Sharansky arrived in New York
from Washington where he met
the previous week with President
Reagan, Secretary of State
George Shultz and other officials
and lawmakers.
HE SAID that he raised the
situation of Soviet Jews with
Gasoline Bomb
Misses Mark
gasoline bomb was thrown at an
Arab house in the Shmuel Hanavi
neighborhood last week but caus-
ed no casualties or damage. The
incident coincided with the end of
the 30-day mourning period for
Eliahu Amdi, the yeshiva student
murdered by Arabs in the Old City
last month.
Amdi lived in the Shmuel
Hanavi neighborhood. The bomb
was thrown about 200 yards from
his family's home where memorial
services were being held. Police
cars patrolled the streets and a
riot squad was on hand but the
services ended without incident.
Amdi's death touched off 10 days
of attacks on Arabs and their pro-
perty by Jews in Shmuel Hanavi
and in the Old City.
Police, meanwhile, are in-
vestigating the stabbing of
Zaharan Haasuneh, Mayor of
Kabatiya in the West Bank and

is pro-Jordan, was attacked by
two assailants near his home. He

two said that the issue of human
rights of Soviet Jews will be "top
priority" in any future negotia-
tions between the United States
and the USSR.
Sharansky said he believes the
West should apply "strong
pressure" on the Soviet Union, in-
cluding trade restrictions and
scientific exchange limitations, in
order to improve the Soviet policy
toward Jews and on the issue of
human rights. He stressed that his
views are his own and that he does
not represent the Israeli
Sharansky was critical of the
media in the West, claiming that
they are too easy on the Soviets
and their abuse of human rights.
Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel's
Ambassador to the United Na-
tions, echoed Sharansky in his
assessment of the "worsening
situation" of Soviet Jews. The
Israeli envoy charged that the
Soviet authorities are engaged in
the "lobotomization of Jewish
culture." He said that Jews are
harassed and persecuted for tyr-

In Sarasota
Poor Jewish Families Need Aid
Friday, December 26, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-HoUywood Page 9
High Court Postpones Decision
On Appeal by Arab Editor
SARASOTA The affluent Jewish
community of 9,000 in this rapidly grow-
ing west Florida city was surprised to find
dozens of impoverished Jewish families in
need of social services, according to Jerry
Stone, director of the Jewish Family
But in its two years of operation, JFS
has come to serve 60 such families, or 15
percent of the agency's primarily Jewish
"We do the best we can to provide a
safety net," he said, by making available
emergency loans, information and refer-
ral services. In addition, JFS will "walk
them through the red tape" of public
assistance, Stone said.
He postulated that 600 poor Jews may
reside in the Sarasota area. Reasons for
the poverty vary. He said Florida has a
unique problem of older adults outliving
their pensions. Other elderly face increas-
ing rents. Divorced women with families
also fall into the poverty range, he noted.
Stone also noted that JFS has received
letters from six South African Jews over
the past few months inquiring about the
area. He knows of one of those families
that immigrated to Sarasota.
Supreme Court postponed for two
weeks its decision on the appeal
by East Jerusalem editor Akram
Haniya against an expulsion order
by the West Bank civil authorities
for alleged hostile activities.
The justices spent three hours in
closed session examining more
than 300 documents submitted by
the prosecution alleging that
Haniya was a PLO activist involv-
ed in anti-Israel demonstrations.
The evidence was not made
available to defense counsel on
grounds of national security. The
justices decided they need more
time to determine whether the
documents are indeed too secret
to be given to the defense.
Defense attorneys Avigdor
Feldman and Felicia Langer told
the court that none of the
evidence they were allowed to see
warranted the expulsion order.
They said they needed the
documents that have been
withheld in order to prepare a pro-
per defense. Feldman asked the
court to ignore material not made
available to the defense.
Haniya, editor of the East
Jerusalem Arabic daily Al Fajr,
was arrested 45 days ago. The ex-
pulsion order drew protests from
many Israeli journalists
Met Museum
Apologizes for Slurring Reference
Metropolitan Museum of Art has
apologized for a slurring reference to
Jews in its Summer, 1986 Bulletin after a
protest was lodged by the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai B'rith.
Museum president William Luers said the
Met found the offensive passage "regret-
table and distressing," in a letter to Carol
Lister, director of the ADL's New York
regional office.
LISTER WROTE to the Museum's
director, Philippe de Montebello, pro-
testing a reference to Jews that appeared
in the Bulletin titled "A Medieval
Bestiary," devoted to the allegorical use
of animals in medieval art from the Met's
The author, art historian J.L. Schrader,
described the owl as a "symbol of
darkness and hence of the Jews who re-
jected Christ, the light of the world, as
their king; for they said, 'We have no
King but Caesar.' "
Lister stated in her letter that "to
perpetuate this ugly medieval notion is
unworthy of our country's most
distinguished museum and a gratuitous
insult to many of its devoted patrons."
Luers promised in reply "to redouble our
efforts to guarantee that the like does not
happen again."
HE WROTE that the museum was "ge-
nuinely grateful" to the ADL "for pom-
ting out our mistake."

If Waldheim Has Conscience,
He Must Resign Wiesel
JERUSALEM (JTA) Nobel Peace Prize winner
Elie Wiesel said here last Friday that if Austrian President
Kurt Waldheim "has any conscience left he must resign."
Wiesel, an Auschwitz survivor, spoke at the Yad
Vashem Holocaust memorial. WaldhemVs "election by the
Austrian people is a stain on Austria and all of mankind,
he said. "I don't know why this man doesn't resign. If he
has any conscience left he must resign."
WIESEL ADDED, "The Presidency is, in the first
place, a moral position, and a man with a Nazi past like
Waldheim cannot hold an office like that." Waldheim, who
served two terms as United Nations Secretary General,
was elected to the Presidency of Austria last June 8 by a
landslide vote, despite evidence implicating him in
atrocities when he served as a Wehrmacht intelligence of-
ficer in the Balkans during World War II.

If Gorbachev Comes
Wiesel Says He'll Bring
Half-Million People to D.C.

Nobel Peace Prize-winner
Elie Wiesel said here last
Wednesday night (Dec. 17.)
that if and when Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev
comes to Washington for a
summit meeting, he will try
to bring a half million people
to Washington to
demonstrate on behalf of
Soviet Jews.
"What I want to do is that the
civil rights march of the 1960's
should be succeeded by the human
rights for Soviet Jewry in the
eighties in Washington," Wiesel
told a dinner in his honor.

MKs' Income
Knesset's House Committee
began debate last Tuesday on the
controversial issue of Knesset
members engaging in income-
producing activities outside of
their parliamentary duties.
The committee was reported to
be divided on the matter, though
all agreed that the rules should be
tightened to avoid conflicts of in-
terest. At present, Knesset
members are permitted to earn
outside income, though they are
forbidden to take salaried posi-
tions while serving.
Instead, many are employed as
attorneys or consultants to large
business firms. Committee chair-
man Micha Reiser, Likud-Herut,
who does not earn outside income,
said he is firmly opposed to a total
ban on such activity.
HE ARRIVED at Ben-Gurion
Airport last Tuesday night on his
visit to Israel after receiving the
1986 Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo
Dec. 10. Wiesel told reporters he
had promised himself that he
would come to Israel immediately
after accepting the award because
"This is where I feel most at
But the 58-year-old author and
Auschwitz survivor seemed taken
aback by the sharp criticism level-
ed against him in some quarters.
Many Israelis deride Wiesel for
not settling in the Jewish State.
He is an American citizen.
Nationalist elements have at-
tacked him for asserting in his ac-
ceptance speech "In Oslo that the
Palestinian people also had rights
which should be respected.
WIESEL SAID he believes he
was given the Nobel Peace Prize
for his activities on behalf of the
universal struggle for human and
civil rights, for all people, not only
Jews in the Soviet Union and
elsewhere. He called his reception
in Oslo "indescribable" both per-
sonally and as a Jew.
"I found great understanding
for the Jewish people, and par-
ticularly for the plight of Soviet
Jewry. I hope we shall succeed in
bringing more Jews out" of the
USSR, he told reporters at Ben-
Gurion Airport.
Wiesel lunched with Premier
Yitzhak Shamir last Wednesday
and appeared in a video film being
shot here about the Western Wall
for Boston University. He also at-
tended groundbreaking
ceremonies of the Holocaust
Memorial Synagogue and Torah
Center in the Kiryat Ungvar
quarter of Jerusalem. It will be
named in honor of his father,
Shlomo Halevi Wiesel, who
perished with all other members
of his family in the Holocaust.

Yeshiva Student's Dormitory
Murder Still Unsolved
NEW YORK (JTA) The murder of 16-year-old
yeshiva student Chaim Weiss in his dormitory room at the
Torah High School of Long Beach on Nov. 1 remains un-
solved. But Jewish schools in the region are installing
alarms and new locks and otherwise improving security.
THE BOARD of Jewish Education of Greater New
York, working with police departments in the metropolitan
area, has arranged free security evaluation programs for
the nearly 600 yeshivas and school programs under its
aegis. Police officers are inspecting school buildings and
facilities to detect weak security points.
Nassau County Police meanwhile continue to in-
vestigate the crime. According to Inspector Kenneth
Carey, coordinator of the County's bias investigation unit,
the murder of Weiss has not been determined to have had
an anti-Semitic motive. Nevertheless, that is one of several
possible motives being considered.

Sydney Schanberg
A Good Journalist Is An 'Outsider
Friday, December 26, 1986/The Jewish FJoridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 13
Continued frw Page 5
Jchanberg's column ridiculed the
Pimes for devoting space to the
Itravails of wealthy suburban
Ihomeowners instead of to the
[billion-dollar problems of New
lYork's decaying infrastructure.
THE TIMES killed his column.
I Schanberg quit. A few months
later, he accepted New York
Newsday's offer to revive his old
I column in its pages.
Schanberg is "more relaxed" at
4ewsday than he had been at the
rimes. "It doesn't have all the
jss and sturm und drang of the
rimes," he said. "It doesn't have
lot of political baggage."
i miss a lot of people at the
Times whom I love," said
Schanberg "But most of the
time, I don't miss making a wider
ripple with my column. When I
mte something now, I have the
ater possibility of writing what
really think. When I wrote what
really thought at the Times, the
nayor was all over the place,
[screaming and yelling. At News-
Iday, the mayor only calls once in a
Iwhile. As Newsday's circulation
(increases from its current
1120,000, he'll call more often."
NEW YORK magazine media
I critic Edwin Diamond doubts that
I Schanberg's resignation from the
Times has made it mend its
|wayward, neo-rightward ways.
"But it was a signal," said Dia-
Imond, "that the Times was
becoming more conservative.
Under Max Frankel (the Times'
new executive editor), the Times
will have to come back to the
center. It can't all be boutiques
and quiche on the Upper West
I Side."
But Schanberg believes the
Times' new editorial team will
keep the paper tip-toeing down its
"timid" path.
"There is now a different group
of people with different per-
sonalities," he said. "But they
share the same attitudes about the
paper and who they cover. The
paper reserves its vigorous
coverage for certain topics.
"ITS MORALITY increases
with a story's distance from the
home office. They allowed my in-
tensive coverage of Cambodia, but
not equally intense coverage of
housing or the homeless in New
But for all his criticism of the
press, Schanberg is hopeful. He
rejected the idea that the intru-
sion of big business into jour-
nalism will inherently deter
"Was Hearst small business?"
he asked.
"I just figure that as long as so-
meone is going to let cranky peo-
ple like me keep writing, then
we're alive and well. If the
publisher of Newsday the
Times-Mirror Corporation
didn't want to give any bad ideas
to young journalists, if they were
trying to get them to tone down
what they were doing, they
wouldn't have me around."
Book-Seller Sues Hebrew U.
Friends on Charges of Fraud
To Sydney Schanberg, a good journalist is an "outsider." He
stands a bit to the side of society's mainstream. He fiercely knows
his values, fiercely protects his principles.
Asked whether the Jew, traditionally an "outsider," was
especially qualified to be a journalist, Schanberg responded, "I
don't know. Wouldn't it also be true, in some ways, of anybody
who felt outside the 'club'? That could be a Jew or a Puerto
Rican or a black. Maybe because Jews find themselves in more
'outsider' situations in their formative years, they are more prone
to being outsiders in their professional lives."
"I don't feel Jewish doing what I do. I feel Jewish about other
things. Maybe I'm shutting something out in my head. I really feel
that what I do is a professional thing. It's the right thing for me."
Reform Leaders Hail JNF
Project To Honor Jews
NEW YORK Two Reform
Jewish leaders last week hailed
their movement's "historic agree-
ment" with the Jewish National
Fund through which money raised
at special JNF events honoring
prominent Reform Jews will be
earmarked for JNF projects in
Israel under Reform auspices.
Rabbi Daniel B. Syme, vice
president of the Union of
American Hebrew Congregations,
said the agreement "binds
Reform Jewry and the Jewish Na-
tional Fund even more closely
than in the past. As our Reform
settlements flourish in the Negev
and the Galilee, we >vill never
forget that JNF was a strong
right arm."
Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie, executive
director of the Association of
Reform Zionists of America, said,
"We in ARZA are looking for-
ward to working with JNF in
reclaiming and building the Land
of Israel.*
Among the initial projects for
which JNF funds will be earmark-
ed under the arrangement are a
playground at Har Halutz, a
pioneering free enterprise settle-
ment established under Reform
auspices; a park area in Lotan, a
Reform kibbutz; and the new
Albert Vorspan Forest of Justice
and Peace in Jerusalem's In-
dependence Park. The forest is
named for the UAHC's senior vice
A steering committee from the
UAHC, ARZA and the JNF will

ing to buy the building from him.
Brown cannot compete with the
diamond dealers in an open
market situation today, he said.
Bob Pearlman, AFHU ex-
ecutive vice president, said "the
facts are pretty clear we have a
documented agreement with
no understanding with regard to
resale." AFHU has lived up to its
end of the agreement, Pearlman
said. "We can't have people going
back and forth on agreements
they made."
BUT BROWN said even if
AFHU does not have a legal
obligation to resell the building to
Gotham, it has a moral one.
Ellenhorn, AFHU's attorney said
Steloff only wanted Brown to be
given a five year lease with
favorable terms. Furthermore,
Brown has never offered to buy
the building for a million dollars,
he said.
Ellenhorn claimed Brown in-
itiated the lawsuit and pressured
Steloff to include the option to
buy. "Mr. Brown would like to
purchase the building for a million
dollars to resell it" Ellenhorn
said. "The lawsuit was brought by
his attorneys we believe the
lawsuit was guided by Mr.
But Brown said that it is the
AFHU, not himself, which would
like to speculate with the building.
"I've been running this bookstore
for 20 years I'm not here to buy
or sell real estate, that's what
they do."
The AFHU has made numerous
proposals to Brown to allow him
to perpetuate the bookstore,
Ellenhorn said. But he has refused
to sign a five-year lease agree-
ment without the option to buy
the building for a (1 million.
IN ONE of the deals though, the
AFHU proposed the sale of the
building to Gotham for $1 million
with a condition that the profits
from any resale would be split bet-
ween Brown and AFHU.
Steloff rejected that proposal,
saying in a letter dated July 1983,
"I do not understand why anyone
other than myself should deter-
mine the conditions of my gift."
Although Ellenhorn said AFHU
"still has high hopes of settling
the case out of court," they are
definitely opposed to selling
Brown the building for $1 million.
Electric Co.
Settles Dispute
Energy Ministry and the Arab-
owned East Jerusalem Electric
Corp. appear to have settled a
year-long dispute over the utility's
debt and its allegedly unreliable
performance in providing power
to Jewish customers.
The agreement in principle
reached Wednesday (Dec. 17) bet-
ween Energy Minister Moshe
Shahal and the company's board
of directors provides for the Elec-
tric Corp. to surrender its fran-
chise to provide power to Jewish
neighborhoods in East Jerusalem
and to Jewish settlements and
military camps in the West Bank,
The Israel Electric Corp. will
take over the equipment needed
to serve Jewish customers and
will waive a $16 million debt owed
it by the East Jerusalem Electric
Corp. The hitter's franchise to
serve Arab areas, which expires
at the end of this month, will be
renewed for 10 years.

A Guide for Jewish Parents
Regarding Christmas has been
issued by the Rabbinical
Association of Greater Miami.
The Guide, according to Rabbi
Brett S. Goldstein, of Temple
Shir Ami, Association presi-
dent, "is in response to many
inquiries by countless Jewish
families in the community."
During this time of the year,
Jewish families are confronted
by confusion and conflict
which the holiday poses for
them. It is hoped that the
Guide will help relieve some of
this confusion, according to
Rabbi Goldstein.
Copies of the Guide have
been distributed by the
Association's executive vice
president, Rabbi Solomon
Schiff, director of the Greater
Miami Jewish Federation's
Q: Isn't Christmas a national
holiday which all Jews can
observe in good conscience?
A: Banks and government
agencies do close, but above
all things, Christmas is a
major Christian holy day
which celebrates the birth
of Jesus, the Christian
Messiah. To suggest to our
Christian friends that
Christmas is anything else
would be presumptuous.
Christmas is not in the same
category as Thanksgiving
Day, Fourth of July,
Decoration Day, or any
other American holiday.
Since we do not regard
Jesus as our savior, we can
not in good conscience
observe Christmas. To do so
is to violate our religious
Q: How do Christian
clergymen and the responsi-
ble Christian laiety regard
the problem?
A: Responsible Christian
leaders bemoan the perver-
sion of the Christmas
season and are trying to do
something about it. Chris-
tian clergymen and laymen
constantly speak out
against the commercializa-
tion of the Christmas
celebration. It is a religious
holiday and should be
regarded as such.
Q: Would it not be the better
part of discretion to "go
along" with our Christian
neighbors, even if it means
observing Christmas?
A: No matter involving viola-
tions of strong religious
convictions can be regarded
as trivial or minor. The true
spirit of Americanism would
never compel anyone to act
in conflict with his freedom
of conscience. Our early
American forebearers came
to these shores precisely for
the opportunity to worship
God according to the dic-
tates of their hearts.
Q: What about the Christmas
A: The Christmas tree is
distinctively a Christmas
symbol. Since Christmas is
for Christians, the
Christmas tree is ap-
Rropriate for Christians on-
j. The Christmas tree has
no place in the Jewish home,
nor should any Jewish child
be compelled to participate
in observances involving
Christmas trees.
Q: Should Jewish children par-
ticipate in Christmas par-
ties in the public schools?
A: Parties designated as
Christmas parties or having
the appearance of
Christmas parties have no
place in the public schools.
Winter or year-end parties
of a general nature are
Q: Is it appropriate to give
gifts to Christian friends?
A: It is appropriate to give
Christmas gifts to our
Christian friends. However,

ticipate in Christmas plays
in public schools?
A: No. Christmas plays
generally portray religious
themes which have no place
in a public school. On the
other hand, some schools
hold a so-called "Winter
Festival" in which an at-
tempt is made to avoid all
religious connotations. But
it is sometimes difficult to
draw the distinction. If the
parents feel that the perfor-
mance is free of all religious
overtones, children may
certainly participate.
Q: Should Jewish children sing
Christmas carols?
A: No. Carols, being religious
hymns, do not belong in the
public school. Jewish
children should not be re-
quired to sing hymns which
embody a theology they do
not accept. Neutral songs
that have no religious
references, however, are
Q: Do we harm our children by
directing them not to
A: No. The classroom is one
among many places which
reveals the existence of dif-
ferences. We further our
children's personal growth
and maturity by teaching
them that they can respect
the faith of their neighbor
without embracing that
faith. We can clearly mark
these differences by such
simple statements as, "This
is what we do," and "This is
what we do not do."
Q: What about other Jewish
children who participate in
Christmas observances in
the public schools?
A: There are now, as there
always have been, parents
who do not accept the view-
point of responsible Jewish
leadership. They proceed on
their own when they permit
their children to participate
in Christmas observances.
This confuses the children
of parents who do follow the
thoughtful recommenda-
tions of Jewish leadership.
Jewish parents will help
Service Personnel To Receive
Chanukah Gifts from JWB
NEW YORK More than
4,000 Jewish ceremonial ob-
jects and holiday gift items
were shipped by JWB to
Jewish military personnel and
their families around the world
and Jewish patients in VA
hospitals in preparation for the
Friday night (Dec. 26) com-
memoration of Chanukah, ac-
cording to Rabbi Barry H.
Greene, chairman of the JWB
Jewish Chaplains Council.
Packages were timed to arrive
prior to the start of the
Chanukah celebration.
In his announcement, Rabbi
Greene praised the work of
members of the Council and
voiced personal satisfaction at
the membership's "unity of
concern that the religious
needs of Jewish chaplains, as
well as men and women in
uniform and the Veterans
Admnistration throughout the
world, are being met."
were carefully selected by
JWB in an effort to "help peo-
ple, many of whom live in tem-
porary or transient homes,
create a sense of Jewishness
for themselves and their
families during this important
season," Greene said.
The selection, which was
purchased with the support of
JWB Women's Organizations'
Services and through the ef-
forts of Jewish chaplains and
lay leaders, included
Chanukah gelt, dreidlach,
menorot, Chanukah candles,
games for children, billfolds,
wall plaques and other
decorative items.
Sisterhoods, JWB Serve-A-
Committees, Jewish Com-
munity Centers and in-
dividuals contributed funds for
Chanukah packages in
response to hundreds of re-
quests from chaplains and lay
leaders throughout the United
States, on ships at sea, and
wherever in the world there is
a U.S. military presence.
In one typical request, Ray
E. Blanton, Jr., a lay leader
aboard the USS Samuel
Gompers, said that "however
good we are at what we do is
the direct result of support and
assistance we receive from
JWB, halfway around the
world. I always welcome a let-
ter or package from JWB
because I know there is help
inside. Without JWB, the
military could forget about
having any type of religious
Erogram for Jews in any
ranch of the service."
JWB, central service
organization for 275 Jewish
Community Centers, YM-
YWHAs and camps in the
United States and Canada, is
the U.S. government-
accredited agency providing
religious, Jewish educational
and morale services to Jews in
the armed services, their
families and hospitalized
veterans, on behalf of the
American Jewish community.
It serves the armed forces
through the JWB Jewish
Chaplains Council, Armed
Forces and Veterans Services
Committee, and Women's
Organizations' Services.
50 Protest
Outside French
60 people demonstrated here for
more than an hour in front of the
French Consulate, protesting die
constant delay of the trial of war-
time Gestapo chief Klaus Barbie.
Barbie has been in French custody
since 1983.
The demonstration was organix-
ed by the New York Holocaust
Survivors Association and The
Generation After, an organization
of Holocaust survivors' children.
The demonstrators charged that
the French government does not
intend to bring Barbie to trial. A
delegation representing the
demonstrators was received at
the end of the rally by the French
Consul, Eliane de Dampierre.
(It was announced in Paris that
the trial of Barbie might begin
next March. He will be charged
with "crimes against humanity.")

Q: Would not the entire pro-
blem be solved in the public
school by joint Christmas
and Chanukah celebration?
A: No. It is a violation of the
Constitution to observe any
sectarian holiday in the
public school, be it joint
observance or otherwise.
We do not correct an error
by compounding the error.
Youth Attache
BONN (JTA) The govern-
ment has announced that a Youth
Attache will be appointed to the
West German Embassy in Israel
next year to further the friendship
and understanding fostered over
the years by exchange visits bet-
ween young people of both coun-
tries. The post is unique in the
German diplomatic service.
Did German Arms to Iran Get
Channeled Through Israel?
BONN (JTA) West Germany supplied arms to
Iran as early as 1973 but channeled them through Israel in
order to keep the deals secret at a time when Bonn official-
ly embargoed arms sales to areas of tension, including the
Middle East, according to reports that surfaced here over
the weekend.
Die Welt, a leading conservative daily, reported that in
1973, Iran, then ruled by the Shah, obtained rights to pro-
duce two West German tank cannons and the ammunition
for them.
A YEAR LATER, West Germany shipped 58,000 hand
grenade fuses to Iran, through Israeli channels, the paper
Israel was used to avoid embarrassment and to head off
possible Arab criticism. Israel was then governed by a
Labor-led government. The information is based on
government leaks to counter an opposition campaign
against the sale of submarine blueprints to South Africa.

Yeshiva Gives Reagan
Honorary Doctorate
President Reagan is now
an honorary alumnus of
Yeshiva University. He was
inducted into the univer-
sity's ranks during a special.
White House ceremony last'
Thursday (Dec. 18) honoring
the institution's centennial.
Dr. Norman Lamm, presi-
dent of the university,
presented Reagan with a
Doctor of Laws degree.
The private reception in the
Cabinet Room marked the first
time that a Yeshiva University
delegation had been invited to the
White House. The event also
marked the first time the universi-
ty had conferred an honorary
degree upon an incumbent Presi-
dent, although John Kennedy,
Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nix-
on received honorary degrees
from the institution before they
were elected to the presidency.

auspices, and said, "Its history,

Lamm, who is completing his
first decade as president of the
university, read a special citation
and conferred the degree upon
Reagan. The citation read, in part:
"As President, you have placed
the stamp of your unique per-
sonality on as new era in our great
country. As a unique American in-
stitution, Yeshiva University is
proud to celebrate its 100th birth-
day in that era. Yeshiva Universi-

fidence of the Reagan era and
we are confident that this larger
confidence will neither fail nor

never wavered from basic human
decency, you have never lost your
sunny sense of humor, and we
know you will never permit a pass-
ing cloud to dim the luster of your
IN ADDITION to the citation,
Lamm also presented Reagan
with a sterling silver menorah in
honor of the Chanukah holiday
season. He also gave a facsimile of
a letter written in 1818 by Thomas
Jefferson in which the former
President of the United States
decried anti-Semitism, and
religious intolerance.
Leading the university delega-
tion were three officers of the in-
stitution's Board of Trustees:
Herbert Tenzer, chairman of the
Board; Stanley Stern, vice chair-
man; and Max Etra, chairman
emeritus. Dr. Israel Miller, senior
vice president, chaired the
