om Holocaust To Rebirth* One Man's Experience
Carl Kosenkopf left South
Broward for the World Gathering
<>f Jewish Holocaust Survivors
I with the knowledge that the jour-
Iney he was about to take would
I be among the most arduous and
emotionally-wrenching of his life.
\aI lhere was never a nment's
doubt in his mind about going.
I Why?
"The main purpose of the Ga-
thering in Jerusalem (June 15-18)
was not for survivors to share our
Personal stories of Holocaust
experiences. It enabled us, survi-
vors from around the world, to
jneet together, for the first time,
I 2 share our achievements, to re-
affirm the continuity of the
hW'Su P60?1- to 8erve notice
| jnat the Holocaust must never be
'WRotten. and to pass on the res-
ponsibility for guarding against a
repetition of the Holocaust to our
children and grandchildren."
Mr. Kosenkopf. who repre-
sented the Jewish Federation of
South Broward at the Gathering,
explained that the hub of the
Gathering was the Survivor's
Village. It was there that the
Gathering's computer system
was set up to help survivors
locate the people that they had
hoped to find.
"The computer helped me find
several relatives and friends,
among them: a classmate whom I
hadn't seen since 1938 (who now
resides in Australia); a cousin
(who now lives in London); and a
boyhood friend from the Warsaw
ghetto with whom I shared the
few morsels of food I could find at
the lime."
Mr. Rosenkopf described the
Gathering's programs as very
meaningful and emotionally
charged. The speeches by Israel's
President Navon and Prime Min-
ister Begin seemed to stress that
the State of Israel must be the
focus of Jewish life.
The other activities of the
Gathering included: a day on the
kibbutzim that had been founded
by survivors; the dedication of
the new Jerusalem Great
Synagogue (which honors the six
million Jewish martyrs and those
who laid down their lives in de-
fense of the Jewish State); the
beginning of building a memorial
to the dead and a tribute to the
living with stones from partici-

High School in IsraelAn Experience
In Hod Hasharon, Our Town
"During our first week of
classes in Israel, our teacher said,
At the end of this program,
you're going to feel like one big
family.' We all laughed! Most of
us were already wishing we could
go home. But you know that
teacher was right. When the
program ended, and we had to
say goodbye to our friends, it was I
like leaving your brothers and
These are the thoughts of
Simone Le Roy, who recently
returned from eight weeks with
the High School in Israel pro-
gram. Simone, and seven others
from South Broward, joined stu-
dents from around the U.S. and
Europe in attending the
Mosenson Boarding School in
Hod Hasharon (South Broward s
Project Renewal City).
Simone explained the program
in the following way: "We met
groups of students from Europe.
South America and Israel. The
kids were mostly in 11th grade.
The teachers seemed more
demanding than in America. All
the classes were taught in
English. We spent most morn-
ings studying Jewish history all
the way from the Bible to current
events. In the afternoons, we
studied math, science and
"What was really special was
that we took tiyuls' (tripsl at
least once a week as part of our
study classes. We did everything
from seeing archeological digs to
visiting Israel's present day
border areas."
"The program also offered
three free weekends. My friends
and I chose places in the country'
we wanted to see, and visited
them on our own. All we had to
do was tell our counselor where
we were going."
"On one of the free weekends,
my counselor arranged for me to
stay with an Israeli family in Hod
Hasharon. This gave me a chance
to really see how the people live."
Israel Study Tour Set for Dec.
Broward Community College,
under the auspices of the
American Zionist Youth Founda-
tion, will be offering an Israel
Study Tour for college age people
(17-33) during the December 1981
winter recess. Participants in the
two week tour will earn three
credits which will satisfy elective
requirements for the AA or AS
degree at BCC.
The price is approximately
$1,100 (plus BCC tuition) which
includes airfare and all land
The trip will be lead by Dr.
Richard Corseri, history instruc-
tor at BCC South Campus. Dr.
Corseri will hold daily morning
seminars providing material rele-
vant to the itinerary of the day.

Hod Hasharon is a small
town. The town's people do their
shopping on the main street in
little stores one food store, one
book store, one clothes store. One
new complex of shops has just
opened in a different part of town
with a supermarket' something
very new for Hod Hasharon.
Most of the apartment buildings
are older, but some new places
are being built. Hod Hasharon
has one community swimming
pool and a park with basketball
courts. Basketball is really
popular in Israel."
"Most everyone in Israel
speaks a little English enough
to communicate. Actually, some-
times Israel seemed very Ameri-
can' tome."
Simone confided she learned in
Israel what it is like to be a
"minority." Simone is not Jew-
ish. "I learned what it must feel
like to be Jewish anywhere else in
the world besides Israel. It was a
different kind of feeling."
"The program taught me many
things. I would like to go back
and visit Israel again soon. It's
really a nice country."

At Riverside, we have the largest staff of

Economical assistance in arranging funeral services
between Florida and New York or anywhere else in the

Actor Chaim Topol, the only

The hour-long rally concluded
with a tape recording of Carring-

Arafat saying: "The destruction
of Israel is the goal of our
member Jewish community in
Argentina. They said they "have

of the Jerusalem Synagogue in
Buenos Aires and the desecration

fall of 1980."
The letter said, "We are
alarmed at the marked increase in
the public availability of anti-

journals Rapeles' and 'Cabildo'
are two of the most blatant ex-
amples of this disturbing
development. We are also con-
cerned that no information has
been forthcoming about the fate

THE LETTER also strongly
urged the Argentine government
"to exercise greater vigilence in
actually combatting anti-Semitic

demning anti-Semitic pro-

take. The continued livelihood of
the Jewish community in
Argentina is of great importance
to us as elected representatives of
the people of the U.S. and to the
citizens of our entire nation. We
trust that you will take all
necessary steps to foster an at-
mosphere in which this com-
munity may live and flourish
without fear."
The Congressmen stressed
that "a deeply committed defense
of human rights and human

Argentina will greatly contribute
to improving relations, between
our two countries."

Flatto-Sharon Wins Jail
Postponement Pending
High Court Study
JERUSALEM (JTA) Samuel Flatto-Sharon,
defeated in his bid for reelection to the Knesset, has won a
postponement of the nine-month jail sentence imposed by
a Jerusalem magistrate following his conviction on
charges of bribery and other irregularities in his 1977
election campaign.
A Jerusalem district court has agreed to delay
Flatto's prison term until the Supreme Court rules on his
appeal against the lower court's verdict. The Supreme
Court is not expected to review the case for several
months because of its backlog of work.
The District Attorney did not oppose the delay. The
court denied a prosecution request for an injunction to
prevent Flatto from leaving the country. The former MK,
a multi-millionaire, was ordered to post bail of 500,000

Volume 11
Rabbinic Litmus Paper
Whether or not Prime Minister Begin succeeds
in putting together a workable government is beside
the point. What is to the point is the absolute black-
mail that the Orthodox religious parties have at-
tempted to impose on the Prime Minister as the price
for their participation in a Likud coalition.
This time, the price was amendment of the Law
of Return defining who a Jew is, not only on the basis
of Jewish motherhood, but also of conversion to
Judaism by the Orthodox rabbinate only.
We do not wish to enter into sectarian ar-
guments here, but merely to observe that at a time
when Jews are struggling to retain their identity not
only as a people, but also as a nation in the form of
the State of Israel, we must question those who
would seek to make distinctions among us, pro-
fessing Jews, as to our origins.
Adolf Hitler did that. The Angel of Death. Josef
Mengele, did that when he pointed left or right in the
concentration camps, delineating with his insouciant
gesture just who would live, and who would die. Do
now rabbis demand that right, too?
What, for example, would they do with respect
to Jewish arrivals from the Soviet Union, especially
today, when so many of them ultimately opt out of
Israel for a new life elsewhere? Isn't the presence of
every Soviet Jew in Israel precious? Must those who
commit themselves to this life also submit them-
selves to the Orthodox rabbinate for tests of "racial
The implications are too hideous to contemplate
further. We do not praise Prime Minister Begin on
political grounds for his refusal to knuckle under to
the blackmail, even if it means new elections. We
praise him on strictly human grounds. And on
Jewish grounds.
The Moving Finger
We are happy that British Jewry was at least
able to hold its huge rally in London protesting the
Arabist policies of Lord Carrington before the spate
of violence erupted that has seized that island nation
these past few weeks.
Suffice it to say that, as Americans, we can be
no less than surprised to note that it was said this
week, on the floor of the House of Commons, that if
Britons could not find the kind of courage and
wisdom the United States showed during its own
riotous days of the 1960s to deal with the causes of
the unrest, not merely to demand law and order, then
they were in for a heap of trouble.
My, my. How times have changed. Not only are
we praised for having done something worthwhile,
but for having done it sufficiently well to be
emulated. And to think: once, in their eyes, we were
nothing but a nation of racist bigots.
U.S. Orthodox Jews Urge Israelis
Hold Line on Coalition Demands
NEW YORK (JTA) Rabbi Moshe Feinstein
president of the Union of Orthodox Rabbis of the United
States and Canada, sent a cable to the religious parties in
Israel Aguda Israel, the National Religious Party and
Tami stating that a primary and essential condition to
their participation in a coalition government headed by
Prime Minister Menachem Begin must be a firm commit-
ment by Begin to amend the Law of Return immediately
without further delay.
FEINSTEIN EMPHASIZED: "Do not rely on any
promises that 'we will try* to amend the law. You must
demand a clear and unequivocal commitment that the
law will be amended immediately to read Giyur
KeHalacha (according to Halacha)." He added that it is
now quite evident that the opportunity for such a demand
is ripe. "Do not let this opportunity pass you by," Fein-
stein declared.

Number 15
TIME WAS. maybe ten years
go and more, that to suggest
that Jews had special political
interests and voted as a bloc was.
to put it in western movie,
terms, "fightin' words."
There was. we insisted then, no
such thing as a "Jewish vote."
American Jews, so our argument
went, voted like anybody else -
as individuals, reflecting their
own individual predilections. To
say otherwise was. in our opinion,
to be anti-Semitic.
I NEVER held with this non-
sense, and the passage of years
since then has borne me out. We
are no longer fearful of the clear
existence of a "Jewish vote."
Post-election results, along with
every other analysis of how labor
voted, or Blacks, or Catholics, or
Eastern seaboard intellectuals, or
fundamentalist Protestants, also
attempt a study of Jewish voting
patterns, with a special eye on
Jewish concerns for Israel.
No one seems to be fearful of
this anymore. When Jews felt
less safe in the general American
community, they resented being
targeted as part of a bloc interest
because bloc interests suggest
interests other than the Ameri-
can interest as a totality, and the
targeting process only served to
isolate them from the main-
stream even more.
But such appears not to be the
case today. Cultural, ethnic,
religious, even linguistic
pluralism is the current order of
the day, and individual interest
groups have no problem in
raising the banner high of these
interests. So open-minded have
we become about this that
diversity in our time even chal-
lenges the status of English as
the language of the nation.
TELL A Miami Cuban that
he must learn to speak English if
he ever hopes to experience the
full flavor of his status as an
American citizen, and he will, if
you are lucky, do no more than
laugh at you. Or else advise you
to learn to speak Spanish if you
expect to get along with him.
Why not? In this foolishness,
he has the divinely-inspired
media behind him, and the public
school system, and the communi-
ty's leading politicians, too. If no

But even if this Miami Cuban
is dead wrong, one thing is cer-
tain: no one will dare challenge
his credentials as an American.
He is merely insisting on the
practice of his inalienable
American right to pluralism as he
All of this is supremely impor-
tant today because the American
Jewish community is now be-
deviled by a new monster. If once
it was the charge against Jews
that they vote aa a bloc, now the
charge is that they place the in-
terests of Israel above the inter-
ests of the United States.
THE CHARGE is not new. In
the days of the "Jewh vote"
imbroglio, there wen those who
accused Jews of '.'dual alle-
giance" also, and it was alleged
that in a confrontation of
allegiances, American Jews
would be moat inclined to give
Israel the nod.
The charge reached its high
point in the 1966 Suez-Sinai War
when the United States de-"
manded unconditional Israeli
withdrawal from the Sues Canal
Zone. I myself recall young Jew
h hotheads who warned that in
the event of an open U.S.-Isrneli
confrontation over unconditional
withdrawal they would be off to
Tel Aviv. Fortunately for .11 of
SLiT t5P urrd: Tel Aviv
told the hotheads under any cir-
cumstances please to stay home
-they would not be welcome;
and. aa history records, there was
no confrontation to teat the issue
because the United States
l#lma>nlj made its withdrawal
demand somewhat less than un-
The "dual allegiance" bit is
beside the point today if only be-
cause, a posteriori, there are
many Americans who carry dual
citizenship and dual passports.
Still American Jews seem not to
be able to enjoy the same pro-
gress in pluralism as, say, Ameri-
can Cubans do. Miami's Alpha 66
can get on prime-time television
news and announce that its
"troops" are in Cuba to assassi-
nate Fidel Castro in time for
Cuba's July 26 revolution cele-
bration. And that's okay apart
from slap-on-the wrist State De-
partment warnings that such op-
erations staged from the territor-
ial United States are against the
law. Otherwise no one tells Alpha
66 that it is placing its Cuban in-
terests above those of the United
AND THEN there is Rep. Paul
M. McCloskey (R., Calif.), who is
running all over the place these
days declaring that "There is a
strong Jewish lobby" in the
United States. Also that "we've
got to overcome the tendency of
the Jewish community in
America to control the actions
of Congress and force the Presi-
dent and the Congress not to be
e v en handed."
There are two issues here. One
is the American Jewish com-
munity's reaction to the McClos-
key statement and other
statements like it. The second is
the McCloskey reaction to the
predictable American Jewish
community's anger and resent-
ment that his statement elicited.
With respect to the first: I was
opposed ten years ago and more
to those Jews who criticized the
view that Jews voted their
special interests as a bloc. Jews
did vote that way; they still do.
So does everybody else, and it is
fruitless to deny it the Jewish
reasons for their denial, good
though they were, notwithstand-
It is therefore absurd and
counter-productive today to deny
that Jews constitute

Anti-Semitism is rampant in
the military, which currently
runs the government. Jewish
conscripts are often tormented,
and never permitted to rise to
positions of decision-making.
There is not one Jewish officer in
the Argentine army.
Included in an Amnesty Inter-
national document published in
1980 was the statement that
Jewish political prisoners had a
'particularly difficult" time. The
report continued. "Some of them
were made to kneel in front ol

to renounce their origins and

The tragic violations of human
rights in Argentina cannot be
ignored. The concept of "time re-

Despite fire from Jewish
leaders, Rep. Paul M. (Pete!
McCloskey (R., Calif.) says he
stands by his remarks that the
Jewish Community has a
"tendency" to "control the
actions of Congress."
"There is a strong Jewish lobby,"
said McCloskey in San Diego. "I
do not understand why the
Jewish community should resent
it being labeled as such. They are
a very effective lobby."
He later said in Washington
that he should have used the
words. "Israeli lobby."
The director of the San Diego
Ann-Defamation League of B'nai

insulted and maligned Amer-
ican Jews" with his comments.

Air Force
Rabbi Still Wearing Yarmulke
NEW YORK (JTA) A Wash-';
ington federal district court judge has
issued a 10-day temporary restraining
order prohibiting the U.S. Air Force
from taking disciplinary or other adverse
action against an Orthodox Jewish Air
Force member for refusing to remove his
skull cap while wearing his service uni-
AT ISSUE is whether the Air Force
can enforce its uniform dress standards
against Rabbi Simcha Goldman, who
serves as a clinical psychologist at
March Air Force base in Riverside, Cal.
Goldman is being represented in his
court action by two Washington at-
torneys, David Butler, a board member
of the National Jewish Commission on
Law and Public Affairs (COLPA), and
Nathan Lewin, a COLPA vice president.
At the end of the 10-day period, the
attorneys said, Judge Aubrey Robinson
III will decide whether to permanently
If He's Asked
enjoin the Air Force action against Gold-
man or dismiss the case.
Howard Zuckerman, president of
COLPA, said this was the first instance
in which Air Force uniform dress stan-
dards have been challenged when the in-
dividual involved has not been a chap-
been wearing his skull cap for a number
of years as a psychologist at the Air
Force base. When a new base command-
er took charge, Goldman was ordered to
remove his skull cap while in uniform.
Zuckerman said COLPA attorneys had
been negotiating informally with Air
Force officials for about eight weeks.
When the Air Force made it clear
that it expected Goldman to observe the
Air Force dress code by not wearing his
skull cap, he asked COLPA to take the
issue to the courts.
Begin to Choose Sharon for Defense
Prime Minister Mena-
chem Begin hinted strongly
that he intends to name
Ariel Sharon Defense Min-
ister in a new Likud
government despite the
bitter controversy
surrounding the ultra-
hawkish Yom Kippur War
He said, on a television
panel interview, that he be-
lieved the appointment
would not now encounter
the overwhelming op-
position raised within the
Cabinet a year ago when he
favored Sharon for the de-
fense post just vacated by
Ezar Weizman.

flatly that he has decided to ap-
point Sharon, observing that he
would name his Cabinet members
onlv after he receives a formal
"call" from President Yitzhak
Navon to form a new govern-
ment. Navon began consultations
Monday with representatives of
various parties in an effort to
form a new coalition government.
The final official results of last
month's elections were issued.
They showed that Likud has 48
seats; Labor, 47; National
Religious Party, 6; Aguda Israel,
4; Hadaah (Communists) 4;
Tami, 3; Tehiya. 3; Telem, 2;
Shinui, 2; Citizens Rights Move-
ment, 1.
Begin also made clear his per-
sonal sympathy for the primacy
of Orthodox Judaism in Israel.
He claimed that the "Jewish reli-
gion and Jewish nationhood are
one and the same thing" and that
he has always favored a halachic
definition of conversion "because
conversion is a purely halachic
THIS PLACED him squarely
on the side of the National
Religious Party and Aguda Israel
which are demanding that the
next Knesset amend the Law of
Return to define a Jew as a
person born of a Jewish mother
or converted by an Orthodox
rabbi "according to halacha"
The NRP and Aguda have made
it their price for joining a new
Likud-led coalition government.
But Un^atposed amendment
has raised a storm of protest from
leaders of Conservative and Re-
form Judaism particularly in the
U.S. who see it as enshrining in
law, the narrow and restrictive
interpretation of halacha by an
Orthodox establishment and
represents a minority of Israel's
population. The NRP and Aguda
together won only 10 seats in the
120-member Knesset.
But Begin indicated that he
would support other Aguda and
NRP demands. He said he per-
sonally favored stricter Sabbath
observance, though he thought
this should be effected "by per
suasion, not by coercion." He
conceded that it was "unrealistic
to demand that Israelis forego
their weekly football games on
Saturday since it is the only non-
working day in Israel. Similarly,
he didn't think the city of Haifa
should be deprived of public
transportation on Saturday be-
cause the running of busses there
was a "tradition of decades."

month in Jerusalem, focuses
attention on the Southeastern
Florida Holocaust Memorial
In speaking of her experiences
as a prisoner of Auschwitz and
Bergen-Belsen, Luba Frederick
said: "To die was easy." Granted
life is not always easy, but when
dying becomes easier, something
is terribly wrong.
She is one of the survivors who
has given oral testimony to the
Holocaust Memorial Center as a
memorial to that horrible Nazi
Hitler era to keep before all
generations the results of in-
humanity that raged in a
country's spirit.
The Holocaust Memorial Cen-
ter is educating the population ,
about the meaning of the Holo-
caust, how it scarred the con-
science of the world and why such
an event must never happen
again. This is being done through
the educational and administra-
tive skills of college presidents
and school officials, the theo-
logical and philosophical insights
of clergymen, the community
awareness of civic leaders and the
financial expertise of business
men and women.
The Center is accumulating
visual and oral testimonies of
survivors, liberators and pro-
tectors. Already these testi-..
monies are being used in an
educational curriculum for the
study of the Holocaust. The El-1
ders Institute of Florida In-!
ternational University (FIU) and
the Central Agency for Jewish |
Education (CAJE with which
the Jewish Federation of South'
Broward is associated) are the
first of many centers of learning
to offer a course of study using
the resources gathered by the
Center. This oral library is'
housed in the Center's offices
located at the Bay Vista Campus
of FIU in North Miami.
President of the Center is Sis-
ter M. Trinita Flood, who is be-,
coming the academic dean of the '
Miami Archdiocese's four-year
college seminary for future
priests. Other officers include Dr.
Abraham S. Fischler, president
of Nova University, serving as
The following item was released by the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services.
After the war, many survivors of the Holocaust immigrated to the
United States, retaining the identities and ages that were successful in
keeping them alive. Today many of these survivors are ofretirement
age and either don't have the means to prove it or are afraid to try.
Many still live in fear of deportation or persecution.
On September 10, 1980, Health and Human Services Secretary
Patricia R. Harris announced that the Social Security Administration
was instituting special procedures to help Holocaust survivors prove
their correct dates of birth for social security purposes. In her an-
nouncement, the Secretary noted that "after World War II .. fic-
titious information was often transferred to official documents ...
and that, for a person's retirement benefits to depend "on such false
information would be a cruel disservice to these survivors of the Holo-
Under the new procedures, the Social Security Administration will
work with U.S. embassies abroad and through any other available
channels to locate and obtain the early records of age or birth. If no
birth certificate or early evidence of age can be found, social security
will accept a written statement from the applicant describing the cir-
cumstances under which the age was falsified. This statement will be
used in lieu of a birth certificate in determining a person's real date of
For these special rules to apply, an applicant must be able to prove
that he or she adopted an incorrect age to escape persecution, con-
finement in concentration camps, or extermination. There are many
different kinds of evidence that the Social Security Administration
wul accept as proof that a person is a survivor of the Holocaust.
Included are copies of correspondence from or depositions to the West
German Government under indemnification procedures, official war
records, identification papers of passports identifying the holder as
Jewish, and evidence of residence in a Nazi-controlled country.
Even if a person does not have evidence of survivor status, it is a
good idea to contact social security. There may be other records, for
instance, with a survivor study organization, which social security can
help locate.
Holocaust survivors who believe they are old enough to retire
should contact a social security office as soon as possible because the
date the applications are filed may determine the date benefits begin.
It is estimated that there are between 2.000 and 10,000 Holocaust
survivors of retirement age who will be affected by these new proce-

dinner given by the Association
of South East Asian Nations in
honor of all the participants in
the International Conference on
Kampuchia which opened here.
The invitation to Israel, which
participated in the conference,
was withdrawn by the hosts of
the dinner without an explana-
tion and without a written notice,
Israeli diplomats said.
According to those diplomats,
the invitation to Israel to partici-
pate in the dinner was withdrawn
by a telephone call last Thursday.
The next day, on Friday, Ambas-
sador Tommy Koh of Singapore,
who is chairman of ASEAN,
called Israel's UN Ambassador
Yehuda Blum and apologized for
the withdrawl of the invitation.
But Koh, Israeli diplomats said,
was not able to provide any satis-

traordinary breach of etiquette."
JERUSALEM Despite ru-
mors of a resolution of the
problem, Israel and the U.S.
clashed Monday over the future
use of U.S.-supplied weaponry by
the Israel Armed Forces. Premier
and Defense Minister Menachem
Begin conferred for more than
three hours with State Depart-
ment counselor Robert McFar-
lane and told newsmen later that
they had reached agreement.
But Begin said that details of
the accord "may or may not be
published" regarding use of
American weapons, Begin con-
ceded that the talks were "con-
nected, directly or indirectly"
with the continuing U.S.
suspension of delivery to Israel of
tour tf-lt warplanee that should
have arrived here more than two
weeks ago.
American arms supplies are
legally conditional upon their
being used for "self-defense," and
the differences between Jerusa-
lem and Washington seem to be

Begin said outright that Israel
would not agree to American
control of its military actions.
Sovereign states could never
agree to such a thing, he ex-
plained. Nor indeed was McFar-
lane seeking U.S. "veto" powers
over Israel's use of the weaponry
it supplies.

AWACS To Saudis
From Miami Herald
Wire Service
gan Administration is expected
to notify Congress that it intends
to sell five sophisticated radar
planes to Saudi Arabia.
The announcement of the deci
sion strongly encouraged by
Defense Secretary Alexander
Haig is expected to sound the
boll for a tough fight with sup-
porters of Israel.
He also said there has been "no
decision on the timing" of when

sell the Saudis five Airborne

craft, AWACS, or equipment for
62 F-15 Eagle fighters.
But he did say that U.S.-Saudi
relations will suffer a serious set-
back if Congress rejects the Pres-
ident's plan.
In an interview in The Wall
Street Journal, Haig warned
against the consequences of a
congressional defeat of the
AWACS sale.
"It would have serious im-

Reagan Sends Congress
N-Agreement With Egypt,
'Other Interests'
President Reagan has sent to
Congress the nuclear agreement
with Egypt which, he said, will
"further the non-proliferation
and other foreign policy interests
of the United States."
The agreement, signed at the
State Department on June 29
could provide Egypt with up to
two nuclear reactors for energy
production purposes. Congress
has 60 days in which to accept or
reject the accord.
"The proposed bilateral agree-
ment reflects the desire of the
governments of the U.S. anc.
Egypt to establish a framework
for peaceful nuclear cooperation
in a manner which will recognize
our shared non-proliferation ob-
jectives, the economic and energy
development needs of Egypt anc
the friendly and harmonious rela
tions between the U.S. anc
Egypt," Reagan said in his mee
sage accompanying the nuclear
cooperation agreement.
THE PRESIDENT noted that
Egypt ratified the Nuclear Non-
Proliferation Treaty last
February. "This is an important
step toward controlling the
dangers of the spread of nuclear
weapons." Reagan said, "and is a
reaffirmation of Egypt's long
standing commitment to the ob-
jectives of this (non-proliferation)
treaty and its commitment to
peace and stability in the Middle
East and Africa."
Meanwhile, White House
Deputy Press Secretary Larry
Speakes had no comment on a
report in the Los Angeles Times
that the U.S. has been main-
taining secret contacts with the

ganization since the Nixon Ad-
ministration and up to the

On Saturday, June 13, King
Khalid of Saudi Arabia made a
six-hour stopover in Paris to
confer with the new administra-

welcomed him at the airport and
rode with him into Paris.
After a banquet at the Elvsee
Palace, the King's brother, Saudi
Defense Minister Sultan Abdel
Azziz, said, "The King is highly
pleased with his talks. The
French and Saudi positions on
practically all issues concerning
both Europe and the Middle East
are near-identical."
Cheysson stressed after the
meeting that the Palestinians
have "a sacred right" to a home-
land and denounced unilateral
(Israeli) decisions on Jerusalem.
He said the status of the holy
places should be decided at an in-
ternational conference attended
by all the parties interested in the
issue because of their religious or
cultural links
During the Security Council's
debate, the French delegation not
only asked for Israel's condem-
nation but also called for the pay-
ment of damages for the de-
stroyed Iraqi site and equipment
Many of France's Jews, in-
cluding people who had voted for
the outgoing center-right admin-
istration, were distressed not
only the concrete statement and
decisions but also by the tone
used by the country's new
leaders. The French Jewish
weekly Jewish Tribune wrote
that some of the words and the
tone "were sometimes offensive"
in spite of the new administra-
tion's obvious good intentions.
SOME FRENCH Jews, espe-
cially those who had supported
the previous regime, condemned
the new approach. Others ex-
pressed surprise but said that
"We should wait to give Mitter-
rand a chance to apply his
policies and views." Others still
said they had "expected nothing
else" and that a country's policy
is determined by cold facts
which, whatever the administra-
tion in power, remain the same.
Among those who expressed
no surprise is Jacques Soustelle,
a former Minister in the days of
the Fourth Republic, a former
Governor of Algeria during the
Premiership of Socialist Guy
Mollet and since then a warm and
unwavering friend of Israel.
Soustelle still is vice president of
the "France Israeli Alliance."
Soustelle told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, "Inever had
any illusion concerning the new
regime as far as Israel and the
Middle East are concerned. I was
unhappy with the outgoing ad-
ministration because of its Mid-
dle East policy, but I never
thought that a Socialist takeover
would change things. The tone,
maybe, might become pleasanter.
more amiable, but the policy
would remain the same"
Soustelle, who practically
broke with Giscard over the Mid-
dle East, adds, "If anything, the
new regime is even more depen-
dent on Arab good will. Its main
aim is to combat unemployment,
and Arab contracts wul be ever
more important. It has also
decided to stop work on the Plog-
off reactor, which would have
supplied a large part of France's
electricity and will increasingly
rely on Arab oil."
"Jewish Revival," Henri Haj-
denberg, admits that he is
"shocked" by some of the new
government's words about Israel.
His movement was highly active
in changing France's political
climate during the long campaign
and helped swing part of the
Jewish vote against Giscard.
Now, he told the JTA, he is
"surprised at some of the things
which have happened," but he
wants to wait and "give Mitter-
rand a chance"
Hajdenberg, a 34-year-old at-
torney, said that "Begin and the
Tamuz bombing have not made
things easy for the new adminis-
tration. Even in Israel, not
everybody agrees with Begin's
decision or his ensuing state-
' merits. In spite of this, some of
the things said by France's new
leaders are wrong. Should this
become the country's policy, we
1 will act against it, but for the
time being, we are still waiting to
see how things will turn out."
One of the outgoing deputies,
38-year-old Jean Pierre Bloch, is
far more critical. "The new Ad-
ministration will be far worse
than anything we have known in
the past. Formerly, we could
work from within, there were
means we, the Jewish Deputies,

Begin Still Confident
Expects to Form New Government
Premier Menachem Begin
has expressed absolute
confidence that he will form
'.he next Israeli government
jased on an "absolute ma-
jority" in the Knesset, pro-
bably in partnership with
three religious parties.
Interviewed on the ABC-TV
Issues and Answers" program.
Begin said the vote count com-
pleted gave his Likud party over
750.000 votes to over 705.000 for
the Labor Alignment which, he
'-aid. translates into 48 Knesset
eats for Likud to 47 for Labor.
We are the largest group. By all
the rules of democracy we expect

ALTHOl say he had firm commitments

partners, he indicated that he
was aimost certain to reach
agreement with the National Re-
ligious Party, the ultra-Orthodox
Aguda Israel and the new Se-
phardic religious party. Tami.
which will have 13 Knesset man-
dates between them. Such a coa-
lition led by Likud would com-
mand a bare majority of 61 seats
in the 120-member parliament.
Begin, in vigorous, almost
combative tones rejected sugges-
tions that he may have difficulty
governing with so slim a margin.
In a democracy, he declared, one
vote is a majority, "an absolute
majority," and he might have one
or two additional seats.
He said he would meet with
former Foreign Minister Moshe
Day an again to discuss the possi-
bility of Dayan's Telem Party
adding its two seats to a Likud
Begin also insisted that a small
majority makes the most stable
government. He said this was the
case because it was more difficult'
to reach consensus in a broader-
based government where some
members sometimes "vote their
conscience" on certain issues. In;
a small government, every
member feels his responsibility
for the government, Begin said.
HE INSISTED that his gov-
ernment will be "the strongest,
most stable, most efficient"
government; Israel has ever had
and predicted that it will govern
"for the next four-and-a-half
He dismissed a proposal by
Yosef Burg, leader of the NRP, to
form a national unity govern-;
ment of Likud and the Labor
Alignment. "These are hectic
days and all sorts of suggestions
are heard," he said. But he lashed
out at Labor Alignment leader
Shimon Peres who, he said, flatly
rejected his own past invitations
to form a national unity coalition.
Begin, who frequently in-,
terupted his questioners, seemed I
to take umbrage when it was
pointed out that his new coalition
would not include moderates like
Dayan or former Defense Minis-
ter Ezer Weizman who were
members of the Cabinet he
formed in 1977, and therefore was
likely to take a harder line than
ever on many issues.
"MODERATE, extremist,
empty phraseology," he said. "I
quote Shakespeare words,
words, words.' I am a moderate
not an extremist. I conducted
affairs I signed a peace treaty
with Egypt of great sacrifice,
great risks" to Israel. "All words
... My government will be good, '
efficient, compact Govern-
ment is composed of groups, they
discuss matters. The majority
decides. Usually it is by consen-
sus. There is no problem of
moderates or hard line. Problems
are solved on their merits."
He enumerated the problems
he expects to face. "The Syrian
question, the peace process, the
missiles (in Lebanon), a compre-
hensive peace, the terrorist so-
called PLO in Lebanon. We shall
deal with, them in all seriousness,
without hard line or soft line."
Begin said Israel "knows
everything" about the joint naval
maneuvers being conducted by
the Soviet Union and Syria off
the Syrian coast. He said they
were no threat to Israel. They
may be a problem for the U.S.,
"for the commander of the Sixth
Fleet and the government that
gives him orders," not for Israel,
he said.
BEGIN ALSO reiterated that
he would give U.S. special envoy
Philip Habib more time to find a
diplomatic solution to the Syrian
missile problem.
"We are prepared to see the
iiplomatic course through.' He-
gin said. "Habib shuttled until
now ... He is a brilliant man.
Until now, he didn't solve the
problem with all his brains. He
may come (to Israel) this week. 1
vill ask him what results ...
U.S. policy is to return to the
status quo ante. The missiles
must be removed. We can t wait
forever ... We could have de-
stroyed them in two hours .
President Reagan and Secretary
of State (Alexander) Haig asked
for time. I agreed. But we can t
wait forever. If they are not re-
moved we will have to use our
own means to remove them"
Begin claimed that the Reagan
Administration's suspension ol
delivery of four F-16 jet fighters
to Israel after Israel's destruction
of Iraq's nuclear reactor on June
7 hurt the U.S.. not Israel. "It
(the suspension! shouldn t have
taken place at all," he said. He
said Israel expected to receive six
F-16s not affected by the em-
bargo on their delivery date. July
17. and also the four emDargoed
planes, possibly later.
He reacted with anger when
xskeo .! Israel would continue to
use American equipment to
attack Palestinian terrorist bases
in Lebanon. "We have a perfect

marks in the course of testimony
before a subcommittee of the
Senate Foreign Relations

the "serious concern" of the U.S.
over Libya's "growing interven-

"Under Col. Qaddafi, Libya
has adopted a diplomacy oi
subversion in Africa and the
Arab world," Crocker said. "It is
a diplomacy of unprecedented
obstruction to our interests and
objectives. Qaddafi has tried in
every way he could think of to
obstruct our efforts to achieve
peace in the Middle East. He has
sponsored subversion from
Africa to the Philippines. He has
actively supported international
terrorism, using assassination
abroad as an instrument of bis
Crocker said that because the
Administration realized "the
U.S. could no longer carry on
'business as usual with Qaddafi's
Libya,' it closed the Libyan
Peoples Bureau (Embassy) in
Washington in May. He said be-
cause of Libya's invasion of
Chad, the U.S. has offered
military aid to African countries
that feel threatened by Libya,
particularly Tunisia and Sudan.
LAST WEEK, the State De-

Qaddafi would not become the

in Libya and traditionally, the

Install New JWV Memorial at Pearl
Iris Goldwasser, special projects chairman of
the National Ladies' Auxiliary, Jewish War Ve-
terans of the United States, is announcing the de-
dication of a memorial plaque immortalizing the
men who lost their lives at Pearl Harbor aboard
the USS Arizona on December 7,1941.
The dedication announcement was made in
conjunction with JWV A National President
Evelyn Mermonstein. Lt. Cmdr. Fred Natkin, of
the U.S. Navy Chaplain Corps, and a member of
the Jewish War Veterans in Hawaii, placed the
plaque in the shoreside memorial at Pearl Harbor.
The new memorial is under the supervision of
Gary Cummins, superintendent of the USS
Arizona Visitors Center, a project of the National
Park Service.
Some 500 participants in the World
Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors in Je-
rusalem witnessed the unveiling of plaques in
memory of three young Jewish men who were
executed in 1944 in the notorious Buna Camp of

the Givat Ram campus.
The three, Nathan Weissman. Janek Gross- i
feld and Yehuda Leo Diament. were arrested,
tortured and hanged for leading a resistance j
movement among the inmates of the extermina-
tion camp.
The ceremony was opened in Hebrew and
English by Fred Diament. who witnessed the ex-i
ecution. Another brother. Rabbi Shaul Diament,
recited a chapter of Psalms in memory of the de-
parted. A close friend of the young men, Arthur
Poznanski, also delivered a tribute.
Sephardic Jewish texts once used by Georgi :
ans in Atlanta are now in the hands of other
Georgians Jews from the Soviet Union's Re-
public of Georgia thanks to the Sephardic
Community Activities Program at Yeshiva Uni-
versity in New York City.
One of the programs' projects is the develop-,
ment of new Sephardic communities and!
congregations in the United States, according to
Rabbi M. Mitchell Serels, associate director of the I
program. Sephardic Jews are of Spanish, Portu
guese or Oriental descent.
Congregation Or ve Shalom in Atlanta was I
one of the groups that donated books. That con-
gregation is comprised mainly of Sephardic Jews
from the Island of Rhodes. Rabbi S. Robert Ichay

Krupp, then a 20-year-
old seminarian from Berlin, was
working on a kibbutz, studying
the Bible and gathering material
for his first book. The subject
was Zionist history, and the book
was to be published soon after, on
his return to Germany. "As a
result of the book," he adds
modestly, "I became known
within my church as something
of a 'Jewish expert'."

figure in the German-Israel

Prussian priest, was an active
anti-Nazi. Even prior to the war,
between 1936 and 1938, he got
thrown into jail several times for
organizing illegal meetings and
for sheltering 'illegal' priests. As
a result of his experiences in jail,
he did not openly agitate again,
partly for the sake of his children

Jews after the war came when his
parents moved to Essen, where
his neighbors were Jewish con-

was also a small Jewish commu-

we would visit their synagogues
and their homes." Later, too, his
father invited many of the com-

voted one lesson a week to the
Nazis. This was very interesting,
especially since no one else was
saying anything about the period
at the time."
All these experiences helped
increase Michael's interest in the
Jews and Judaism. His deepest
influence, he feels, was shaped by
his own religious upbringing,
particularly by his reading of the
Old Testament. "Nevertheless,"
he admits, "it was still all rather
abstract. I remember when my
mother announced the birth of
the State of Israel. It was very
exciting, but I couldn't quite
connect it with the Jews I was
reading about in the Bible."
HIS INTEREST in Jews and
Israel remained with him through
his seminarian years, and
brought him his first trip to
Israel and his reputation as a
"Jewish expert." This expertise
earned him a further stay in
Israel, in the mid-1960's, when he
completed his doctorate in
Mishna at the Hebrew Universi-
ty. He also met and married his
Jewish Algerian-bora wife during
this period. "That upset some
church conservatives," he says
ruefully, "including my father
who thought that such a mar-
riage was taking the dialogue too
far. Still, the church was broad-
minded enough to send us back
here to Israel in 1970."
The year 1970 was another sig-
nificant turning point in German-
Israel relations, for its was in
that year that the Lutheran
Church set up the AktionSuh-
nenzeichen program for German
volunteers to work in Israel. The
program was headed by Dr. Mi-
chael Krupp who took up resi-
dency in Jerusalem's Ein Karem
district, where he has stayed ever
since, raising his Jewish family
and "living a true ecumenical

{brought over young German
people to work on kibbutz and in
social and voluntary work (for
example, with handicapped chil-
dren and old people), was a
typical expression of this new
concern about Jews and Israel."
In some ways, of course, this
program was looked upon as a
form of penance for the Holo-
caust. Not that it could hope to
repair the inestimable damage
perpetrated by that event. But it
was seen as a way of promoting
better German-Israel relations
through practical good deeds.
This does not mean that there
has not also been some very
radical rethinking done in the
sphere of German Christian
DR. KRUPP, in the role of
theologian, has been at the fore-
front of these developments,
although he is first to admit that
his activities are only one of
many similar developments
taking place within the German
church community.
"Since I visit Germany in the
course of my work, I see how the
dialogue is developing. On the
whole, there has been a steady
growth of interest and involve-
ment. Some 20 professors now
teach Judaic a and Hebrew
studies in Germany. Each year,
the Nov. 9 commemoration of
Knstallnacht brings more and
more people to the churches,
while some of the church synods
have begun publicly making
statements revising the church's
stand on Jews and Israel."
The most significant of these
statements was made at the be-
ginning of 1980 by the Synod of
the Protestant Church of the
Rhineland, one of the largest and
most influential groups in Ger-
many. It confessed the guilt and
responsibility of German Chris-
tendom for the Holocaust, af-
firmed that the Jewish people re-
main God's elect people, and
stated that missionary activity
among Jews was and is inadmis-
DR. KRUPP himself has con-
tinued to host German visitors,
students and theologians all of
whom have been coming to Israel
in increasing numbers. But more
important, he set up, some three
years ago, a year-long course for
German trainee priests who come
to Israel to study Bible, Hebrew,
Talmud and Zionism, as well as
to get to know the land and its
people. "When they return to
Germany, they can become an in-
fluence both inside and outside
the church. I' ve seen the first re-
sults and they are very encourag-
ing. We have 70 candidates for
the coming year and it is a shame
that we can only accept 20. Yet
the response shows the enthusi-
asm with which the program has
been met in Germany."
This is not to say that tensions
don't exist. Some claim that the
dialogue tends to polarize
opinions on both sides, especially
when the Arab-Israel conflict is
brought in to the discussion. One
"extreme philc-Jew and Zionist"
this is how Lutheran Pastor
Roland Neidhart defines himself
believes in speaking to Jews in
Hebrew, which he sees as the
"authentic language of
dialogue." He speaks of the need
for a "balanced" attitude be-
tween the Church's dialogue with
the Jews and its concerns for the
Christian Arab community in
Israel and on the West Bank.
It would thus appear that
problems notwithstanding, the
Jewish and Zionist dialogue with
Christian Germany has devel-
oped over the past decade or so
on both a theoretical and
theological level as well as on a
popular and practical level. It re-
mains to be seen how much this
dialogue will be allowed to
flourish and whether or not it will
be strong enough to overcome the
political expediency so powerful
everywhere in our day.

The Chief Rabbinate is the
only Jewish religious body of-

CCAR leaders said at a press
