LONDON (JTA) Jewish sources in the Soviet
Union report that Boris Azernikov, the Soviet Jewish ac-
tivist sentenced in 1971 to thrce-and-a-half years imprison-
ment in Camp Potma 19, has been released in Leningrad
to which he was transferred last week. Despite his ordeal,
he is in good health.
Azernikov has also received an exit visa to go to Israel.
He is expected to leave the Soviet Union on Mar. 6.
Azernikov, a dentist, expressed his gratitude to all who
campaigned on his behalf, and especially to the British
Dental Association.
He said that he hoped he would be able to visit Britain

(In New York, the National Conference on Soviet
Jewry reports that former Red Army Col. Naum Alshansky,
of Minsk, was granted permission to emigrate after a four-
year long struggle. Former Army Captain Gennady Kipnis,
a colleague of Alshansky, was allowed to leave last year,
after authorities called off a "show trial" that was to im-
plicate a number of former army personnel. Of the original
group, now only Col. Efim Davidovich, a colleague of Al-
shansky who is still harassed by authorities, remains in

Temple Solel Holds Weekend
Dedication Celebration
Temple Solel dedication week-
end began last Friday with the
Chanukat Bet Ha-Kenesset (dedi-
cation) worship service at 8 p.m.
in the new temple sanctuary at
5100 Sheridan St., Hollywood.
The services honored those who
have worked to make the dream
of Solel a reality, and community
and political leaders.
Participating in the event were
the Temple Solel Choir under the
direction of Carol McKenzie; I.
A. Durbin. president of the Tem-
ple; I. Lawrence Hunter, execu-
tive vice president; and Cantor
Jerome Klement of Temple
Emanu-El. Ft. Lauderdale.
Greetings were brought by
Mayor David Keating of Holly-
wood: Rev. Claude O. Tucker,
president of the Greater Holly-
wood Ministerial Association; and
Herbert Katz. president of the
Jewish Federation of South
Broward. A dedication prayer
was said by Rabbi Harold Rich-
ter. chaplain of the Federation
of South Broward.
Temple Solel was founded in
May 1970 by prominent Holly-
wood builder I. A. Durbin, who
felt that the need of a fast grow-
ing community of young families
in the Hollywood Hills-Emerald
Hills area could best be met by
the formation of a liberal temple
in that area.
Initially, Temple Solel was
formed with a group of 35 fami-
lies. It now has a membership of
more than 400 families under the
spiritual leadership of Rabbi
Robert Frazin.
Temple Solel is Hollywood's
only Liberal Congregation. Lib-
eral Judaism is a blend of the
traditional with the modern, com-
bining the beauty of ritual prac-
tice with the complexity and
spirit of 20th Century Judaism.
Temple Solel worshippers wear
a Yarmulka (skull cap) but the
wearing of Tallet (prayer shawl)
is optional. The prayer book of
Reform Judaism is used creative-
"Hebrew is an important aspect
of the services, as are experi-
mental features in worship," sayj
Rabbi Frazin.
Temple Solel has a very active
Sisterhood, Men's Club. Youth
Group and Junior Youth Group
which make up a working task
force behind the Temple. A wide
variety of programs, projects and
social events have highlighted the
Temple Solel's dedication din-
ner dance Saturday evening prov-
ed to be a thoroughly delightful
evening in honor of the dedica-
tion of the Temple.
Temple Solel's new sanctuary at 5100 Sheridan St., Hol-
lywood, was dedicated last weekend after nearly five
years of hard work to make a dream come true.

School Board Policy Violated
By Two Broward Elementaries
! 'I [VI
A complaint charging two
Broward elementary schools
with violating school board pol-
icy prohibiting the distribution
of religious literature through
the schools has been sent to
school superintendent, William
The letter, signed by Dr. Stan-
ley Kessel, chairman of the
Broward Area Committee of the
Anti Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, noted the ADL re-
ceived complaints that children
at Hollywood Hills and West
Hollywood elementary schools
had been given "permission
slips" to take home for their
parents to sign, authorizing the
school to give the children Gid-
eon Bibles.
Dr. Kessel stated that during
ADL's inquiry both principals
claimed they had no knowledge
of explicit county school policy
barring the distribution of bi-
bles or other religious materials
through the schools. Superin-
.tendent Drainer had issued such
a policy, which referred to state
and Federal legal rulings, in
May of 1973.
The two principals told ADL
that representatives from the
Gideons had told them that the
distribution of the bibles would
be legal as long as the children's
parents had signed the permis-
sion s:ips. However, both federal
law and county school policy
prohibit the distribution of bi-
bles through the schools.
Court rulings over the years,
which have interpreted the con-
stitutional principle of "separa-
tion of church and state," have
concluded that the government,
or any of its institutions such
as the public schools, may nei-
ther advance nor retard religion.
The legal obligation of the pub-
lic schools is to remain neutral
on matters relating to religion.
In its letter, the ADL asked
Mr. Drainer to re-issue the
county school policy memoran-
dum to all principals, and re-
quested him to "refer to the
current reason for the re-issu-
ance of the memorandum, not-
ing that it is unlawful for the
schools to either warehouse or
distribute religious materials,
and that parental permission
cannot sanctify a school activity
proscribed by law."
The first complaints about the
planned bible distribution and
use of permission slips came to
ADL's attention several weeks
ago. After confirming the sub-
stance of the complaints, ADL
contacted School Board attor-
ney, Edward Marko.
Hadmsah Bond-With-Israel
Luncheon Scheduled Monday
Miriam (Mrs. Philip) Kros-
kin, chairman of Hadassah's na-
tional Service Committee, will
president of both her local chap-
ter and region.
Born in Johannesburg, South
Africa, and reared in Norfolk,
Va., Mrs. Kroskin has visited
Israel on several occasions, in-
cluding participation as a dele-
gate to the World Zionist Con-
gress in Jerusalem in 1964. Her
varied experiences in Israel, in
Hadassah and the Jewish com-
munity, have equipped her to
make a fine presentation of Ha-
dassah's program, the American
and Israeli scene.
Reservations for the South
Broward Hadassah Israel Bonds
luncheon may be made by call-
ing the Israel Bonds office in
Agreeing the : :"-' was a
violation of Board poi.. Marko
contacted Superintendent Drt.n-
er. The ADL expressed its ap-
preciation to Drainer for his
"prompt and personal attention
to the matter."
It was understood that Drain-
er had contacted the principal
of Hollywood Hills school direct-
ly to explain the county school
policy on the issue of the dis-
tribution of religious literature.
After the ADL received com-
plaints about the involvement of
a second school, West Hollywood
Elementary, and after being told
by that school's principal that
he did not know of the county
school policy, the ADL decided
to request Mr. Drainer to for-
mally remind all county princi-
pals of the county's policy and
the requirements of federal law.
Arthur Teitelbaum, director
of the Anti-Defamation League's
Florida office, said "it is unfor-
tunate that the Gideon repre-
sentatives apparently misled
these two principals into think-
ing the permission slip scheme
would make it proper to utilize
their schools for the distribution
of bibles.
Fortunately, county school
policy, which flows from U.S.
Supreme Court decisions, is de-
signed to keep the schools from
becoming involved in religious
activities, a position which hon-
ors the integrity of each stu-
dent's individual beliefs."
Teitelbaum pointed out that
the schools are not prohibited
from teaching about religion,
but they must not get involved
in practicing or participating in
religious activities.

We Relive the 1956 War
Cnce again, we are living through the 1956 Suez-
Sinai war, in which Israel was joined by Great Britain
and France to tame the Arab thrust aimed at choking
off western industrialized civilization.
The first time was right after the 1973 Yom Kippur
War, when the United States knuckled under to Soviet
Union pressure and forced Israel to halt her armies
short of a clear-cut victory on the battlefield, which
would have humiliated the Egyptians and the Syrians.
The second time is now and it comes as part of
Secretary of State Kissinger's step-by-step diplomacy
during which we keep being told over and over again
that no pressure is being applied on Israel to make
further territorial concessions without a frank state-
ment of (a) non-belligerency and (b) recognition of Is-
rael's exis:ence as a nation.
The tragic aftermath of the 1956 war, at the end of
which the Eisenhower administration sent Britain and
France scurrying from the Middle East and opened up
the area to Soviet influence for the first time in its his-
tory, was one to which our State Department and ad-
ininistratlon after administration seem to be increasingly
The no-win "finish" to the Yom Kippur War, to
which our own militarists in Southeast Asia appear to
have accommodated themselves so easily, is the natural
result of this insensitivity.
#The Israelis need no map drawn for thenj1,|vh,ei};L,
.,; gvpt's sanctimonious. cal> for a guarantee i
Israei'&tintagrity asva .nation-by--thei not be worth the paper it is written on;
Egypt's dragging of her heels in the matter of
opening the Suez Canal, long since cleared of debris
left over from the 1967 war, has as its purpose the
masking of her intention to violate her promises at
KM 101.
Bloody Sacrifices Sold Out
With respect to the first consideration, if Egypt or
Syria and/or any other Arab nation really intended to
recognize Israel, no guarantees would be needed.
With respect to the second, there can be no doubt
that Israel-bound cargoes will not be permitted access
through the Suez Canal, let alone Israeli shipping.
Once again, Israel is forced to go begging for what
she won at such bloody sacrifice following her victories
on the field of battle.
Kissinger's step-by-step diplomacy sounds more
reasonable but is just as brutal as American foreign
policy was back in 1956.
The Gerontological Industry
If only because it is a cliche, it is absurd to argue
that where there is smoke there is fire. All too often,
we have seen one without the other.
But New York's examination into the doings of
Rabbi Bernard Bergman, the multimillionaire operator
of a string of nursing homes there, certainly indicates
the presence of a social conflagration not necessarily
restricted to that citv alone.
Throughout the nation, and probably the world, our
"modern," and "enlightened' society's method of deal-
ing with the aged is worse than cynical. It is downright
It operates on the assumption that getting old, like
becoming sick and dying, is something to be hidden
from the tender sensibilities of a vigorous world. And
so we commit our aged to the secret snakepits of nurs-
ing homes where the aged are not only isolated but
cruelly exploited.
This is not always true. Not all nursing homes are
snakepits. But apparently Rabbi Bergman's are. So are
countless others. And the investigation is properly air-
ing our cynical motives and our cruel procedures in a
profitable gerontological industrynot only the Rabbi's.

Percy Was Not That Important
YT'ELL, here I go again. But
someone has to say it. I am
referring to what, over the
years, I have come to call the
conservaUon of minority energy.
Jews as a minority are fre-
quently involved in a variety of
civil libertarian causes to em-
phasize for the majority that
numbers don't always justify the
basic principles and conditions
of human freedom.
AND THEN there is Israel,
which occupies such a vast part
of our sentiments and which
keeps us on constant guard
against infractions of her com-
fort and security.
But the principle of the con-
servation of minority energy
takes the position that we can't
be i.i thcie pitching 24 hours a
Xot e\c:y violation of our
rights, not every threat to Is-
rael's future is equally grave.
SoRte, in fact, are hardly a
threat at all.
' VAXD TET,' trie iriin'nrit.v mili-
tia among US make no apparent
*"tiitoncti6fis: they'center--'' into
' each ehaOi nge' as if it were- a
question cf life or death.
The result of this lack of dis-
crimination is that it dulls the
majority's ear.
Experience has shown that
the responsible majority recog-
nizes that in numbers there can
often be tyranny.
BUT IF we keep their hot-
line to public decency, morality
and justice jangling day and
night, pretty soon they'll simply
refuse to answer the phone
right or wrong, emergency or
Furthermore, this excessive
need to be the public caretaker
suggests that Jews have a pri-
ority claim on morality which
others can not, from time to
time, claim for themselves. Is it
inconceivable that sometimes we
are wrong?
I have in mind the recent flap
over Sen. Percy.
Now, it is true that we have
the prospect of a growing anti-
Israel sentiment in the United
States. Part of it has to do with
the fact that as a nation we
beaten your enemy's two main
armies, and then you elect to
feed them and to supply them

Parker Towers Function March 9
In Memory Of The Late Jack Traub
Harry Hirsch, chairman of
Parker Towers building, announc-
es that the residents will sponsor
a special event Sunday March 9
at 8:00 p.m. in the Blue Room
in memory of the late Jack
Traub, a former resident.
A special speaker from Israel
will present a report on behalf
of the Committee for the Survival
of Israel and World Jewry.
The eveninR is under the aus
pices of the Jewish Federation/
Israel Emergency Fund's 1973
campaign. Committee members
assisting in developing the pro-
gram include Harry Hirsch,
chairman; Samuel H. Levy, co-
chairman; Murray Blaz, Sarah
Gould, Joe Greenstein, Abe Les-
nar, Richard W. Olson, Monty
Silver, Stanley Sturman, Thelma
Sturman, Dorothy Weber and
Gladys Witus.
Luncheon And Fashion Show Monday
To Aid Dysautonomia Foundation
Evelyn Bregman, a resident of
the Hillcrest complex, has been
instrumental in arranging a fund-
raising luncheon and a fashion
show at the Hillcrest Country
Club Monday to benefit the Dy-
sautonomia Foundation, a nation-
wide organization founded in
New York to support research
on the disease, which affects the
autonomic nervous system.
Mrs. Bregman's daughter,
Dorothy, 25, is a victim of the
disease, which is as much a killer
as Tay-Sachs, and is also a dis-
ease unique to Jews. The afflict-
ed can. neither taste nor smell;
as babies they cannot cry or
suck, they do not feel pain, heat
or cold.
Those afflicted frequently run
temperatures as high as 110 de-
grees, accompanied by paroxysms
of vomiting which at times re-
quires intravenous feeding as
well as drug therapy. Since the
tear ducts do not function, ul-
cerated eyes are also common to
sufferers from the disorder.
"Doctors claim," Mrs. Bregman
said, "that they are close to find-
ing the answer, but bav.e been
stymied by lack of research
funds. It should also be pointed
out that finding the proper treat-
ment of this disease will also
benefit those who suffer from
other diseases affecting the auto-
nomic nervous system."
Committee members responsible for the
March 9 program in the Blue Room memo-
rializing the late Jack Traub include,

Soviet Jewry
USSR Doesn't Intend To Yield
Soon after the renunciation by
the Soviet Union of the trade
agreement, two savage sentences
against Jewish activists were
passed. Dr. Mikhail Stern, 56, a
Vinnitsa endocrinologist, was
sentenced to eight years in a
severe labor camp. Mikhail Lev-
iev, also 56 and former manager
of a government store in Mos-
cow, was sentenced to death. Both
had sought exit visas to Israel.
The significance of these ac-
tions is twofold. One. there ap-
pears to be an intensification of
the Soviet campaign to frighten
Soviet Jews out of plans to emi-
grate. Two, the Soviet determin-
ation to maintain tight controls
on such emigration seems appar-

Speed Processing
Of Food Stamps
More than S900.000 in addi-

month in Broward County by
the use of food stamps, a.cord-
ing to a Division of Family Serv-
ices report.
"This is $900,000 in federal
dollars that would not normally
come back to Broward," said E.
R. Bresnahan, United Way exec-
utive director, who recently
made arrangements for the Red
Cross to assist in the food stamp
While many local residents
complain about the food stamp
program, a great many family
incomes are dependent right
now on that additional money
coming into our economy, he
pointed out.
In addition, it provides help
to the people who are receiving
the stamiis, most of whom pay
for part of their own groceries
if they are able.

Law Change Was
Effective Oct. 1
Last October, a change in the
new Florida Landlord Tenant
Act went into effect.
A tenant who wishes to vacate
the premises prior to the expira-
tion of a written lease or under
a week to week, month to month,
or year to year tenancy must so
notify the landlord in writing by
certified mail 7 days prior to
Failure to so notify releases
the landlord from his duty to
send written notice to the tenant
of his intention to make a claim
against the security deposit.
Prior to the chance in the law
a landlord who failed to send a
notice of intention to make a
claim against the security deposit
within 15 days of tenants vacat-
ing, forfeited his right to impose
such a claim.
The new law wipes out the
landlord's duty when the tenant
fails to give the landlord 7 days
notice of intent to vacate.

Bernard L. "Larry" Landers of
Chestnut Hill, Mass., and Holly-

a scholarship trust at Brandeis

of academic chairs, and the con-
struction of the Linsey Sports
Center and the Sachar Interna-
tional Center at Brandeis.
Mr. Landers, who also serves
as a consultant to Philipp Bros.
Chemicals, has been a Fellow of
the University since 1964 and
was a member of its President's
Council prior to ttiat time. For

A new Jewish Community

emanate activities for grade
school children, teens, adults, and
senior adults.
"It is oui r jpe," said Dr. Me-
line, "that the building will be-
come the place for the Jewish
teenagers of our commulty to
congregate fcr activities, for re-
laxing, and for plenty of fun.
We encourage the Jewish Youth
of oir Community to use the
building for their group meetings
and events.
"One of the highlights for the
senior high school age group will
be a Saturday Night Coffee
House which had its grand open-
ing on Feb. 22 with live music,
dancing and refreshments. We
call it "The Center Place', said
Meline, "and every Saturday
night Jewish teenagers are wel-
come to come for an evening of
fun with other Jewish teens in
the Community."
A portion of the Activity
Space will be converted into a
permanent teen lounge where
kids can congregate for meetings,
to chat, to play ping-pong, pin
ball or table games.
A group of teens has already
begun decorating the lounge and
coffee house area in preparation
for their events.
Teens interested in joining the
teen Steering Committee should
call Rafi Sonnenfeld at the
Center office.

In Bombing
year-old army deserter has con-
fessed last week that he threw
a hand grenade into a Netanya
discotheque which killed five
people and wounded 21.
Ezra Avraham, who has a
past police record for juvenile
delinquency, told a Magistrate in
Netanya that he had intended
to frighten the discotheque own-
er with whom he had quarreled
and he regretted the casualties.
He was remanded in custody for
15 days, pending trial.
AVRAHAM WAS one of five
men arrested by a special police
unit investigating the Netanya
grenade attack. The five alleged-
ly stole the grenades and other |
weapons from an army supply
A police spokesman said that
Avraham had been inducted into
the army under a special pro-
gram to rehabilitate juvenile de-
Although a Palestinian terror-
ist group in Beirut claimed re-
sponsibility for the discotheque
attack, police from the start at-
tributed it to either a personal
grudge or a war between rival
gangs operating a protection
and extortion racket against
night clubs and discotheques.
IN AN unrelated development,
Israeli security sources disclosed
that they have uncovered a ter-
rorist network operating in the
Tulkarem region of the West
Bank, not far from Netanya.

India Rejects Israel's
Table Tennis Team
Tel Aviv
QNCE AGAIN an Israeli sports team was
banned from international competition with
the Indian government refusing to issue visas to
the Israeli table tennis team for participation in
the world championship in Calcutta February 6.
Shmule Lalkin. secretary general of the Is-
rael Sports Federation, was advised by cable that
H. Roy Evans, president of the International
Table Tennis Association, has included this coun-
try in the draw, but has been informed by the
Indian government that it was unlikely visas
would be issued to the Israeli contingent since
no diplomatic relations exist between India and
EVANS MADE a strong protest on the mat-
ter, and requested that the Indian minister in
charge reconsider and supply the proper visas.
It should be pointed out that it was not
necessary for the Israeli table tennis players to
receive visas to enter India, since they were per-
mitted entry for a period of three weeks without
Despite ^s possibility,'the ISTleirS, Wlong-
standing members of the Asian Games Federa-
tion, insisted that visas be issued to the team, and
everything possible be done to end what Lalkin
described as blatant "discrimination" against Is-
rael, which is contrary to all the General Assem-
bly of International Sports Federations rules.

ABRAHAM YESELSON is chairman of the De-
partment of Political Science at Rutgers Uni
versity, and Anthony Gaglione is a professor ol
politican Science at East Stroudsberg College.
The two men co-authored "A Dangerous
Place: The UN as a Weapon in World Politics"
(New York, Grossman Publishers, $8 95, 240 pp.).
THE BOOK is a devastating diatribe against
the present status of the UN. In instance after
instance, the authors present overwhelming proof
that the UN is not and never was a forum for
peace. It has become an instrument for aggres-
sors to justify their criminality.
Israel is used several times '.s an example of
the lack of justice in this institution. They show
why it is fruitless for Israel to lodge complaints
against any Arab state since "the Security Council
is a useful weapon only for the Arabs."
THE HYPOCRISY of India in invading Goa
and taking other steps in violation of the UN
Charter and yet voting consistently against Israel,
how China succeeded in shooting i^s way into the
UN, and how Russia could invade Hunsary and
escape unscathed from even a reprimand are but
a few examples of why the UN is tragicallv over-
"It has failed to stop aggression, to defend
human rights, and to act in timo of crisis." To
bring a complaint before the UN is "a hostile
THE INCIDENT marks the first time that
there has been a brnk in snorts relations be-
tween India and Israel, which have always en-
joyed an amicable understanding. It should be
pointed out that more than a dozen Arab nations
plus Gaza are among 110 members of the ITT A,
and many of them were inc'.uierl amnni th 50-
plus entries who appeared for the championships
in Calcutta.
Israel has already Darticioated in ovr half
a dozen world championships. During th last
world tabls tennis games conducted in Sraivo,
Yugoslavia, in 1973. the Israe'i team was ou'led
out midway through the tournament, since the
Belgrade government could, or would not, con-
tinue the team's security.
When contacted in Cardiff. Wales. Evans in-
dicated that it virtually was impossible for a
change of venue. He explained. "We had a very
difficult situation here.
"Furthermore, all the participants already
made their travel arrangements. To cancl th*J
championship at the last moment was not rea-
sonahV" ,,. ,
EVANS ACTUALLY had a precedent for
taking a championship away from a discriminat-
ing country which refuses to admit a fellow mem-
ber nation. According to the ITTF charter, the
host association is required to guarantee every
access to all of its members.

hot" because the complainant know hw the
e-ards are stacked. The authors recomnvnd the
abolition of the political functions in the UN since
"it cannot work for pepro."
Harper Colophon Books, $2 45. 229 pp.) is by
four leading American political scientists, mem-
bers of the Foreign Policy Association. It is a
challenging study of Communist strategy.
Communists have made great gain; because
"They conceive of the struggle for power ... in
larger dimensions than their opponents."
The absurdity of Kissinger's policy of detnte
with China and Rus-ia and his vaunted SALT
agreements and talks are revealed to be pitfalls
for the U.S.A.
The Communists use the UN to save their
satellites from defeat and prevent the UN from
functioning when their clients are winning.
"OPEN SECRET," by Virginia Bfodine and
Mark Selden (Harper & Row, S8.95, 217 pp.),
reveals the deceptions perpetrated on America by
the Kissinger Nixon Doctrine in Asia.
The author-editors and other contributors
show how Kissinger believes in attempting to
secure international stability rather toan' inter-
national peace. They make an amlftifl of Kis-
singer that should be studied by those who would
understand his double-talk.

Perhaps they have in mind Syria which enjoys the
dubious notoriety of trampling on every form of democ-
racy. Non-Moslems, like the Nestorian Christians, have
felt the sharp lash of persecution.
THE DISMAL fate of the few remaining Jews here
stts a sorry example of what may be expected in a
"democratic'' state of Palestine.
Ask the Druzes of Syria, who have been frequent
victims of violence. This is Syria, where one govern-
ment succeeds another after assassinations, revolts,
treachery and again assassinations.
IN MODERN Egypt only one political party is
legalhardly a paragon of democratic practice. In
199^ Jews, Armenians and Greeks were expelled from
the country.
The two-million Christian Copts in Egypt, once
regarded as the intellectual elite of that country, are
now being frozen out of all the top posts in government
and commerce.
Unhappy Lebanon has a long tradition of inter-
communal massacre between its Christians and Mos-
lems, and even today teeters on the edge of a civil
war, as the government has abdicated its responsibility
over large sections of the country where PLO terror-
ists have taken over control.
Do we have to examine the democratic "tzitzit" of
of countries like Saudi-Arabia or Kuwait, Abu Dhabi
or Libya?
Who can forget what Jordan's Bedouins did to
the Jewish Quarter, to Jewish synagogues, even to
Jewish cemeteries, when thoy held Old Jerusalem?
