Pope Paul Opposed To
'Unilateral Measures'
For Jerusalem Changes
Egyptian official said here
that Pope John Paul II is
seriously concerned over
the issue of Jerusalem and
has affirmed the Vatican's
opposition to any unilateral
measures in that city.
According to Osama Al
Baz, Egypt's Under-
secretary for Foreign
Affairs, the Pope expressed
his views to Vice President
Hosni Mubarak of Egypt
during a private meeting at
Castel Gondolfo, the Papal
summer residence.
AL BAZ said Mubarak con-
veyed a message to the Pope
from President Anwar Sadat on
the subject of Jerusalem.
Mubarak, who is on a six-nation
tour of Europe, apparently to
mount diplomatic pressure on
Israel, left for Paris after meeting
with the Pope.
Al Baz told a press conference
here that the Middle East peace
process was threatened by Israeli
actions such as the adoption of a
law declaring Jerusalem its
capital, settlements on the West
Bank and pre-emptive attacks on
south Lebanon.
He said Egypt would welcome
European participation in the
Middle East peace process and
favored an international con-
ference aimed at solving the
Palestinian question but only if
the Palestinians themselves
attended. Al Baz said an identity
of views between Egypt and Italy
on the Middle East was
demonstrated during Mubarak's
talks here

A New Year's Message
We Jews are almost 15 million individuals of many
nationalities and languages. Although the oceans and con-
tinents may separate us, they do not divide us. As we usher in
the New Year during the High Holidays, we celebrate our an-
cient origins and renew our pledge to ourselves and to each other
that our people will continue to live out its unique destiny, one
people committed to the highest principles of justice and
It is in these days that we reaffirm our responsibility
towards our fellow man.
We stand together, we help each other. Of all the miracles
which have marked our long history, one of the greatest is the
miracle of mutual .aid. It is an obligation which no Jew can
renounce. It is a power which has sustained and strengthened us
in our darkest hours, and which has been the finest inheritance
we can pass on to our children.
In this New Year, we must pledge to continue our work and
our generosity to assure the survival into many more New Years
of all our people in Israel, in other lands around the world and
right here in our own community of Pinellas County.
On behalf of the Executive and Board of the Federation and
the United Jewish Appeal Campaign, may we wish you and your
family and all Jews everywhere a happy and peaceful New Year.
Reva Kent, President
Pinellas County Federation

1981 Campaign
Moves into High Gear
Reva Kent, president of the
Jewish Federation of Pinellas
County, announced at the
Federation board meeting that
Saul Schecter has accepted the
position of general Campaign
chairman of the United Jewish
Appeal-Jewish Federation
Campaign in 1981.
The annual campaign, con-
ducted by the Jewish Federation
of Pinellaas County, is the major
Jewish fund source for the Gulf
Coast Jewish Family Service, the
Jewish Community Center, many
national and international
organizations and also supports
needy social services and welfare
programs in the State of Israel
In announcing the ap-
pointment, Mrs. Kent stated
that, "Saul Schecter brings to
this position much experience,
enthusiasm and dedication to all
those whose lived are made a
little easier by the funds raised."
pointment, Schechter made a
plea for support by the total
community on behalf of the
campaign. He said, "Jews
locally, nationally, and in-
ternationally who need our help
must not be ignored," and it is
his hope that concerned in-
dividuals of Pinellas County will
rally behind the Campaign, not
only financially, but that they
will also volunteer to assist him
to bring to fruition one of the
most successful campaigns in the
relatively short history of the
Pineal las County Federation.
Schecter has been a resident of
Belleair Beach for a little more
than a year, having moved here
from Huntington, N.Y., where he
was an involved and totally
committed member of the Jewish
community. He brings many
yeas of experience to the position
as a Campaign Cabinet of the
United Jewish Appeal, temple
chairman of the UJA Campaign,
regional chairman of the UJA-
Federation combined Campaign
and chairman of the Suffolk
County Leadership Development
Program. He served his temple
both as trustee and treasurer. In
Saul Schechter
addition, Schecter was his
temple's Israel Bond chairman.
Schechter has been honored by
both UJA and Israel Bonds for
his outstanding efforts on behalf
of Jews everywhere. Just before
moving here, he and his wife
Susie were honored at a
testimonial dinner by their
temple, with a commemorative
journal dedicated in their honor.
Since moving to Pinellas
County, Schechter has served as
a member of the board of
Federation and the board of Chai,
the organizing body of the Jewish
Nursing Home. He and his wife
family are members of Temple
B'nai Israel in Clearwater.
Schechter is executive vice
president of Superior Surgical
Manufacturing Co., Inc. the
county's leading manufacturer of
uniforms. He resides in Belleair
Beach with his wife and two sons,
David and Adam.
gives so freely of his time and
energy, he replied, "It is the
responsibility of every Jew to do
what he can to insure Jewish
survival." He added "I am
looking forward to an exciting
and rewarding Campaign built
upon the foundations established
by my predecessor, Marvin
Feldman. We need to encourage
wide community involvement to
enable us to reach new goals and
expand much needed Federation
services to the community in
Pinellas County, in Israel and
around the world."

From the Rabbi's Desk
'Let There Be Light'
"In the beginning God created
the heaven and the earth." These
familiar words, recited and
chanted in synagogues and
temples throughout the world,
mark the celebration of the
holiday Simchat Torah. The final
portion of Deuteronomy is
completed, the Torah is im-
mediately rolled back to the
beginning and once again the
yearly cycle is begun by the
chanting of the Creation Story.
To me. both the holiday of
Simchat Torah, as well as the
Creation Story itself, form a
much needed lesson on the im-
portance of religious education.
In actuality, Jews today are
caught up in a dense cloud of
educational darkness. Many
areas offer only inadequate or
sometimes no educational op-
portunities at all. Other places
have abundant educational
resources, but are facing an
almost total lack of interest on
the part of the people. It is
almost as if we were once again
part of the Jewish educational
dark ages.
Simchat Torah, however,
teaches us a lesson which can be
used to bring light to this
darkness. Probably the most
frequent question asked about
Simchat Torah is why we begin
reading the Torah again im-
mediately after completing it?
According to the Rabbis, this is
done to show that no one can ever
learn all there is to know from the
Torah. Therefore, not even one
day should pass when we are not
directly involved in reading and
studying some portion of the
THIS SAME lesson is em-
bellished in the Creation Story
itself. On the first day of creation,
God created light "And the
Ia)t6 said. Let there be light!'
and there was light." This light,
however, was not the normal type
of light known to man, for the
sun and the moon were not
created until the fourth day.
What then was this strange
light? Many view it as the light of
Torah and learning.
This, to me, presents the way
out of the dense cloud of
educational darkness in which we
are encompassed. We must study
our Torah and( our religion
continuously throughout the
year. By doing this, maybe we
can generate some of that same
light that God created on the first
day of creation. Through study
and education, maybe we can
bring light to where there was
once darkness maybe we can
finally progress, once again,
beyond the dark ages.
As we prepare to celebrate the
holiday of Simchat Torah and
begin the cycle of Torah readings
again. I ask that we remember
the lessons oi Simchat Torah and
the Creation Story itself. I ask
that we join together in saying,
"Let there be light!"

Dear Mr. Bernstein:
My husband and I are emotional wrecks. Our daughter is 18
years old and studies in a university in a northern college. She
just wrote to tell us she has decided to live with a boy she has
been dating. My husband suggested cutting off her college
expenses: I'm afraid things will get worse. She is a good
Dear Mrs. V.: Mre V
Your problem is becoming fairly common among our Jewish
youth. It is encouraging that your daughter is keeping the lines
of communication open. Perhaps she can come down to Pinellas
County and visit you personally before finalizing her plans.
Remain calm and discuss possible pitfalls of such a relationship,
support her commitment for education and try not to panic!
Professional and confidential counseling at Gulf Coast Jewish
Family Service might help.

Pinellas Profile
Reva Kent, Jewish Federation President
Ed. Note The Pinellas
Jewish community is one family.
[ However, geographical distances
and varied commitments deter as
from becoming acquainted with
each other. We hope that this
profile series will help us to get to
know and recognize prominent
members of the Jewish com-
munity. "WE ARE ONE."
One of. Reva Kent's earliest
childhood recollections is
visiting her Bubbe's house and
seeing the window sill lined up
with tzedakah boxes. "You never
get poor from giving charity,"
her grandmother told her, and
these words have served as an
inspiration to Reva during her
years of doing, working and
caring for others.
Its easy to see where her
courage and determination come
from. Her father, Jacob
Greenberg, left Russia by himself
at the age of 14 years, and with
few funds and came to the United
States to find a better life. He
eventually settled in Indiana,
where he met and married
Florence Hess, a recent arrival
from Lithuania. Their marriage
produced two daughters, Marian
and Reva.
Reva's home was Hammond,
In., until she left to attend the
University of Illinois. Reva's
family's influence upon her
values showed as a college
student, and during her time at
Adult Education
Series at B'nai Israel
The Adult Education Com-
mission of Congregation B'nai
Israel announces its kickoff event
on Oct. 8, at 8 p.m., featuring the
Jewish historian and author,
Max Dimont.
His most popular books, Jews,
God and History and The
Max Dimont
Indestructible Jew, have been
>>est sellers for decades, selling
over two million copies. His
newest book (1979) The Jews in
America, examines the roots,
history and destiny of the
American Jews.
The subject of his lecture, "The
Paradox of Zionism in a World of
Kacism," will be a modem in-
terpretation of the clash of
Jewish and Arab destinies in the
20th Century.
Dimont is Jewish, though
scholars have argued that he
might not be because of his
objectivity. He was born and
educated in Helsinki, Finland
and spoke no English when he
entered the United States during
the Depression years of the
1930*8, although he spoke fluent
Finnish, Swedish, German,
Danish and Norwegian.
The popularity of his books is
that he views the Jew not as a
downtrodden sad sack but as a
man of grandeur who marches

the University she was an active
member of Hillel and B'nai B'rith
AFTER graduation she went
to Chicago, and through a mutual
friend met her husband, Marshall
Kent. In 1956, they made the big
move and came to Clearwater.
Again, Reva's awareness of her
heritage and Jewish obligations
prevailed, and within a short
time, at the request of Rabbi
Harry Richman, began teaching
Sunday School at Temple B'nai
Throughout the years they
have lived here, Reva and
Marshall have shown a devotion
and dedication to their traditions
and their community. Reva has
been actively involved in the
Federation of Women's Clubs,
the PTA and the Largo Women's
Club. She has served Jewish
causes in Hadassah and the
Federation of Temple
Sisterhoods, both in local and
national positions.
Reva has worked for Israel
Bonds, United Jewish Appeal
and the Jewish Federation, both
as Campaign chairwoman and
president, locally and as a year-
. round delegate to the National
Assemblies. In recognition of her
service, Reva received the State
of Israel Bond David Ben-Gurion
Reva's love affair with the
State of Israel began when she
was a child. Her Zaida received a
package from a Yeshiva in Israel,
and it contained soil from the
Holy Land. Reva felt the soil of
Israel for the first time. The love
affair has endured.
IT WAS in 1968 that the Rents
first visited Israel and since then
Reva has returned more than a
dozen times. The most recent
visit was just last September,
when she was invited to Israel on
the prestigious Prime Minister's
Reva has somehow managed to
mesh the demands of a
motivated, goal-oriented woman,
with those of a housewife and
mother. The Rents have four
sons and two grandsons. Stan,
his wife Carolee and their son
Steven, age 10 months, live in
Deltona, as does son Larry, his
wife Sandra and their child
Justin, age 2 years. Bachelor
David lives in Deltona, and the
baby of the family, Joel, attends
Stetson University in Deland.
Reva somehow always finds
the time to pursue sewing, her
favorite hobby and means of
relaxation, and has become an
accomplished seamstress. She
takes pride in her involvement in
the business community and
works with her husband Marshall
in his construction and
warehouse rental business.
An admirable woman, Reva
Kent, and genuinely deserving of
our first Pinellas Profile.

back 40 years of Democratic progress
for social justice, civil liberties, and
racial and religious tolerance. Cutting

From Hope to Reality
A sculpture called Peace Form One was
dedicated across from the United Nations recently in
a long overdue tribute to the late Ralph Bunche, the
former Under Secretary General of the UN who won
the Nobel Peace Prize in 1950 for helping bring about
an armistice between Israel and its Arab neighbors.
Bunche, one of the leading black Americans of his
generation, was also instrumental in setting up the
UN peacekeeping force in the Sinai after the 1956
Sinai War.
The 50-foot stainless steel obelisk serves as a
reminder of a time when many looked to the UN as
an institution that would ensure peace in the world.
Bunche was the type of international civil servant,
the type that seems to have gone out of style, whose
main objective was to achieve peace.
Maybe the present members of the UN Sec-
retariat, as well as the representatives of the 154
members of the UN, will look at this monument and
realize how far the UN has gone from the tradition
Bunche symbolized. Today, the UN has become more
of a forum for exacerbating differences rather than
resolving them. This is especially true in the Arab-
Israeli conflict, an issue on which Bunche devoted so
much of his effort.
Addressing a meeting at the General Assembly
Hall to dedicate the monument, Vice President
Walter Mondale touched on this point when he urged
the UN to help build peace in the Mideast based on
the foundation set by the Egyptian-Israeli peace
agreement and not to act in ways that undermine the
peace process.
Those at the UN who participated in the tribute
to Bunche should heed these words. They can
provide a living memorial to Bunche and really honor
his great name by seeing to it that peace in the Mid-
east, to which he contributed the first steps, becomes
a reality.

for inciting anti-Arab protests in
the occupied West Bank.
Kahane, leader of the tiny
extremist group called "Thus"
that advocates expelling Arabs
from Israel and the West Bank,
already is serving a jail term for
illegally demonstrating on a
university campus.
The latest sentence stemmed
from two incidents in the West
Bank. In July 1979, Kahane and
a handful of his followers entered
the city of Nablus, distributing
leaflets and shouting slogans
urging Arabs to leave. A similar
demonstration in violation of
army orders followed last April in
Ramallah, provoking an angry
scuffle with local Palestinians.
NEW YORK The largest
increases in United Jewish
Appeal campaign contributions
by a major leadership mission to
Israel were recorded on Thur-
sday, Aug. 28 at a state dinner in
the Knesset for the 100 members
of the UJA 1981 Prime Minister's
Figures released here showed
that regualr 1981 campaign
pledges announced in the
presence of Prime Minister and
Mrs. Menachem Begin totaled
$15.6 million, from contributors
whose gifts for the previous
campaign were $11.4 million. The
37 percent increase is the highest
in the history of the annual Prime
Minister's Missions, which began
shortly after the Six Day War of
Pledges for Project Renewal,
for which UJA is seeking con-
tributions over and above regualr
giving, registered even greater
gains. A total of $15.3 million in
Project Renewal pledges was
announced to the Prime Minister,
who set the program in motion
three years ago with a call for a
massive international effort
shared equally by world Jewry
and the people of Israel. This
represents an 86 precent increase
over the $8.2 million previously
pledged by the same con-
According to UJA National
Chairman Herschel W. Blumberg
of Washington, D.C., who led the
mission, the unprecedented
Project Renewal gains were an
intense and spontaneous reaction
to face-to-face meetings between
groups of mission members and
the local leaders and residents of
four Jerusalem neighborhoods
included in the renewal program.
The meetings freely aired the
hopes and concerns of the
residents, as well as the advances
made and problems encountered
in carrying it out.
The mission, for which Lee W.
Scheinbart of Boston served as
program and recruitment
chairman, was the first of the
annual Prime Minister's in-
vitational events with a $100,000
minimum pledge qualification.
The 100 participants, including
Reva Kent and Charles
Rutenberg, represented the
largest group of givers in that
category ever brought to Israel
on a UJA mission. The event was
a key element in a new program
for $100,000 minimum con-
tributors being initiated in the
1981 campaign by the UJA
"Hineni Committee" under the
chairmanship of Samuel H.
Miller of Cleveland.
Prime Minister and Mrs. Begin
were presented by Miller with
specially designed pins, making
them honoary membes of the
Hineni Committee.
Another first recorded by the
mission was an all-morning
seminar at Hebrew University
conducted by the Jerusalem
Institute of Management,
bringing mission participants
together with some 50 leading
Israeli business men, bankers
and industrialists. Seminar
discussions covered a wide range
of subjects related to Israel's
economy and financial structure,
examinig the status of the
country's technology-based
industries, the investment
potential for Diaspora Jewry and
other means of closing Israel's
trade gap.
In addition, the mission's
opening night dinner in Beit
Machase Square was the first
UJA mission plenary session
ever held in the reconstructed
Jewish Quarter of the Old City in
Jerusalem. Support of the in-
divisibility of Jerusalem was and
underlying theme of the mission,
which voiced the age-old pledge,
"For Jerusalem's sake I will not
be silent," on the first night at
the Western Wall and again on
the final evening in a Yizkor
service at Yad Vashem's Hall of
Remembrance. A visit to
Ammunition Hill, site of a critical
1973 battle in the drive for the
reunification of Jerusalem
preceded the Yad Vashem
Prime Minister Begins ad-
dress at the state dinner climaxed
a full program of appearances by
leading Israeli officials. Other
greeting mission members and
exchanging view with them
included President Yitzhak
Navon, Deputy Prime Minister
Yigael Yadin, Jewish Agency
Chairman Leon Dulzin and
Mayor Teddy Kollek of
Another highlight of the
mission was an afternoon of home
hospitality with young couples
establishing pioneering new
mitzpim (pre-settlements) on
hilltops in the Galilee. Before and
after these visits, mission groups
paid their respects to the people
of Kibbutz Misgav Am, recent
target of terrorist violence and
murder. A briefing on the Galilee
repopulation program by Dr.
Raanan Weitz, director-general of
the Jewish Agency Rural
Resettlement Department,
provided the background for the
afternoon's program.
The mission itinerary also
included visits to a number of
human support programs funded
through annual
UJA / Federation campaigns,
including a Jewish Agency
absorption center and Youth
Aliya village, and JDC-aided
projects for the elderly and for
handicapped children.
The mission launched the 1981
United Jewish Appeal fun-
draising campaign, which seeks a
peacetime record national total of
$635 million to meet Jewish
needs in Israel, elsewhere
overseas and in communities at
Can We Believe Political Platforms?
In these torrid days of cam
paigning for the presidency, the
blacks of America are one up on
the Jewish community in that
Benjamin L. Hooks, executive
director of the N AACP, has been
privileged to address both the
Republican and Democratic
National Conventions.
But representatives of Jewish
organizations have had abundant
opportunity to make known their
consensus on Middle East issues.
Neither President Jimmy Carter
nor Gov. Ronald Reagan has
spoken in a vacuum in their
references to the unending
conflict between Israel and the
Arab states. And the prominence
given to proposals for solving the
Middle East conflict, especially
in the platforms of both parties,
reflect rather wholesome
digestion of the Jewish input.
OBVIOUSLY, what matters
moat in the end is how much of
the platform promise is carried
into action, once the last hurrah
has been heard and the electoral
votes counted. Thus, had Mr.
Carter adhered completely to the
Democratic promises of 1976,
Israel today would be less
pestered by its Arab assailants,
and the Palestine Liberation
Organization would probably not
be so near the center of the
burning issues.
Holding the two platform
documents up to the light and
reading between the lines, one
finds this profile:
The Democrats now continued
support for Israel along with a
pledge not to help arm Israel's
potential enemies. The
Republicans pledge full support
also and, while making a bow to
the strategic importance of Israel
and the deterrent role of its
armed forces, go on to say the
* Robert
GOP will "seek to pursue ties
with moderate Arab states."
Camp David gains, project hopes
for full autonomy for inhabitants
of the West Bank and Gaza, then
tie to this a promise to help
preserve Israel's security while
permitting the Palestinians
living on the West Bank and in
Gaza "to participate in deter-
mining their future."
Along the way, the
Republicans warn of radical
Palestinian goals and their
relationship to Soviet ambitions.
The Republicans want direct
negotiations among the states
involved by way of taking a leap
beyond the Israel-Egyptian
negotiations. As to Camp David
gains, the Republicans direct fire
at "the Carter Administration's
involvement with the PLO" while
pledging to reject any call for
involvement of that circle of
On Jerusalem, the Democrats
declare the U.S. Embassy should
be moved from Tel Aviv to
Jerusalem (one wonders when?)
and supports the established
status of the ancient Jewish city
as the capital of Israel "with free
access to all its holy places
provided to all faiths." The
Republican platform is not
committed to a view of Jerusalem
as Israel'8 capital but does ap-
prove of the understanding that
Jerusalem is to remain an un-
divided city with "free and
unimpeded access to all holy
places by people of all faiths."
form states flatly, "We oppose
creation of an independent
Palestinian state" (no doubt
aware of the fact that Jordan
constitutes one today if only the
Arabs would acknowledge that
reality). The Republican platform
seems more willing to atop short
at saying the establishment of a
Palestinian state on the West
Bank is a no-no. Frequent
reference in the GOP plank to the
ominous thought of Soviet
penetration of the area seems to
place that factor far ahead of any
worry about the emergence of a
Palestinian state anywhere.
The Democrats are strong for
an end of terrorism and violence
in the Middle East. No doubt the
Republicans ate, too; but the
heavier platform underlining is
more on the danger of Soviet
sorties. The Republican hope
seems high also for more
American trade in the area with
caveats on Arab boycotts and
more particularly on an Arab oil
In trying to decide where to
put that vital "X" oo the
presidential ballot, American
citizens now have before them the
full story of Carter promises,
actions, and mishaps in con-
nection with the Middle East but
are left to rely on Reagan
pledges, with no way to tell for
certain how he might perform if
and when he gets into office.

Prime Minister Mena-
chem Begin has warned of
recent arms acquisitions by
Iraq which, he said, were of
major strategic purchase of
1,200 tank transporters,
mainly from West Ger-
many. This would enable
Baghdad to deliver a
powerful armored force,
intact, to Israel's north-
eastern front in the event of
a new war, the Prime
Minister noted.
There was every reason to
expect Iraq to participate in such
a war, he said. It had participated
in all past encounters and
indeed had suffered because its
tanks had had to make their way
to the front on their treads.
REGARDING Iraq's nuclear
program, Begin said Israel was
doing "all we can" to thwart it,
and would continue to do so.
Israel was receiving "help from
important friends" in this
respect, Begin stated. He gave no
further details.
Begin spoke of accretions to
Syria's armed strength, too. He
revealed that the number of
Soviet advisors, in Syria had
recently doubled to more than
5,000. Syria could now field more
than 3,000 tanks, he said, and its
pilots had begun to fly the
Russian-supplied MIG 25 jets
hitherto flown only by the
Soviets themselves.
Periodically, Israel received
"information" that the Syrians
were planning to take hostile
action but denials always fol-
lowed. Israel for its part re-
mained on its guard.
BEGIN SPOKE with satis-
faction of Israel's success "with
the help of the Senate" in per-
suading the U.S. not to supply
Saudi Arabia with auxiliary fuel
tanks for its soon-to-be supplied
F 15 jets. These tanks, Begin
said, would have given the
Saudis the capacity to bomb
Israel"-- cities and return to bases
deep inside the country.
But even without the auxiliary
tanks, the Saudi planes could be
moved up to the Tabuk base,
close to Israel's southern tip, for
sorties against Israel from there.
Begin warned. He said he always
pointed this out in conversations
with U.S. officials who stress
that the American-supplied F-15s
are not to be stationed at Tabuk
but at bases much farther off.

Suppressing Motherhood 'Unnatural'
Declaring that there is "something unnatural
in not having an ample number of children," and
in "suppressing the natural instincts of
motherhood," the Rabbinical Alliance of America
this week launched a campaign throughout the
country strongly opposing Jewish participation
in the concept of "family planning."
In a call to American Jewry to repudiate the
concept of family planning, Rabbi Abraham B.
Hecht, president of the 500-member Orthodox
Rabbinic group, said that any form of family
planning is a "threat to the existence of the
Jewish people."
The group's strong stand against family
planning centered around Jewish survival. It also
stressed that "a woman who suppresses her
generative spirit to have children is in effect
encouraging egotism and unhappiness."
As one of five members of the House of
Representatives to serve on the President's
Commission on the Holocaust and on the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Council, which were
established by Executive order as temporary
bodies. Congressman Bill Lehman (D., Fla.) has
introduced legislation which will establish the
United States Holocaust Memorial Council as a
permanent body.
The principal functions of the Holocaust
Memorial Council will be to plan and oversee the
construction and operation of a permanent
Memorial Museum to the victims of the
Holocaust, to establish and administer an
Educational Foundation, and to establish a
Committee on Conscience to provide early
warning of threats of genocide against any people
throughout the world. In addition, the Council
will designate one week in each year, to be known
as "Days of Remembrance," as a national, civic
commemoration of the Holocaust, and it wul
encourage and sponsor appropriate observation of
Days of Remembrance throughout the United
Israel no longer exists, as far as Iran's
newspapers, radio and television are concerned.
The official Iranian news agency Pars, in a
report monitored in Kuwait, said henceforth the
Jewish state will be called "occupied Palestine."
The ruling was contained in a directive issued
on the heels of the Ayatollah Kuhollah

Rabbi Joseph B. Messing, first U.S. Army
Jewish chaplain to be on active duty for 30 years,
has been named to the dual position of director of
JWB's Armed Forces and Veterans Services
Committee, and director of JWB's Commission
on Jewish Chaplaincy. -
Prior to his new appointment, Rabbi Messing
served as the Western Area field director of
JWB's Commission on Jewish Chaplaincy. He
retired from the military chaplaincy as a Regular
Army Colonel.
Rabbi Messing also has the distinction of
having been Deputy Staff Chaplain of
Headquarters, U.S. Army in Europe, and
Command Chaplain, Seventh U.S. Army, the
highest administrative positions ever achieved by
a Jewish chaplain in the U.S. Army.
A resolution directing the United States to
repudiate its abstention on the United Nations
Security Council Res. 478 and reaffirming Israel's
right to choose its own capital city has been
introduced by Congressman Phil Crane (R., 111.).
UN Res. 478 censures Israel for exercising its
right to choose Jerusalem as its seat of gover-
nment. It passed in the Security Council 14-0
with the United States abstaining.
The Illinois Congressman stated that "the
Carter Administration emphasizes its interest in
a just settlement in the Middle East. Yet its
failure to take a forthright position on so vital an
issue to Israel demonstrates a clear lack of
political fortitude and calls into question the
United States commitment to Israel's well-being.
"It's nothing but crass hypocrisy for Jimmy
Carter to reaffirm his support for the 1980
Democrat Party platform which specifically calls
for the recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli
capital and then, less than 30 days later, instruct
his Secretary of State to go to New York and
personally withhold his commitment to that
principle," Crane said.
Yehiel Admoni of Jerusalem has been named
director-general of the Project Renewal Division
of the Jewish Agency for Israel. The appointment
was made by the Agency's Board of Governors on
the recommendation of United Israel Appeal
Chairman Jerold C. Hoffberger, who serves as
chairman of the Jewish Agency Project Renewal
Committee, and Robert Russell, the committee's
Russell, who is also chairman of the United
Jewish Appeal Project Renewal Coordinating
Committee, and a leader of the Greater Miami
Jewish Federation, made the announcement in
New York.
For the past three years, Admoni has been
director-general of Agridev, an Israeli company
which assists Third World nations with
agricultural development programs.
The American Jewish Congress has assailed an
amendment to the 1981 Department of Education
appropriation bill, which passed the House of
Representatives last week, barring the Depar-
tment of Education from spending any funds for
the purpose of "preventing the implementation of
programs of voluntary prayer or meditation" in
the public schools.
Abraham S. Goldstein, chairman of the
American Jewish Congress Commission on Law
and Social Action, called the bill "the latest in a
series of unsuccessful Congressional attempts to
overturn the decisions of the Supreme Court
prohibiting religious exercises in the public
He added, "Although we know of no program
of the Department of Education which would be
subject to the language of this amendment, it is
disheartening that Members of Congress, who
have taken oaths to support the Constitution,
have voted to subvert that very Constitution."

400,000 Israelis
Living, Working
In U.S. Today
About 400,000 Israelis
are presently residing in the
United States. Most of
them are lured to this
country by the American
dollar, eager to become
"rich Americans" like the
American tourists they see
in Israel in the best hotels
vho spend money freely.
There are other motives as
At least two studies are
now being conducted in the
U.S. to determine what has
prompted Israelis to move
to this country. Their
number has increased
particularly since 1973. The
Israelis living in the U.S.
comprise people in all walks
of life from European to
North African immigrants
who could not adjust to
conditions in Israel as well
as "sabras," native-born
AMONG THEM are also some
who were economically well off in
Israel. The studies attempt not
only to establish the reasons for
them leaving Israel but also to
analyze how they have adjusted
to life in America, the op-
portunities they have found here,
their reactions to the American
Jewish community and the gap
existing between them and the
American Jewish community.
They know that they are not
popular with Jews in this
country, and they keep aloof from
Jewish communal life.
Their growing number in New
York, Los Angeles and other
cities is developing into a major
issue. Many American Jews ask
how it is that the Israeli
government permits them to
emigrate at a time when the
Jewish State needs all the
manpower it can muster for its
security and economic
Israeli diplomats explain that
Israel is not a Communist
country from where citizens are
not permitted to emigrate. Free
emigration, they say, is a major
principle in democratic countries,
and Israel is a democratic
country. This explanation,
however, is hardly convincing
especially since almost all of the
Israeli emigrants yordim
are of military age or in the
reserves that can be called to the
front in any emergency. No
democratic country permits the
emigration of citizens in these
categories when war is involved.

Highlights of the Year 5740
NEW YORK (JTA) During the year 5740 Israel
found itself more isolated in the international community
than ever before, deserted by almost all its allies, except
the United States. Israel was under severe and
unremitting fire in the United Nations by the Arab-Third
World-Communist bloc for its West Bank settlement
policies, the Jerusalem law, and the Palestinian question.
Even the U.S. abstained on resolutions condemning Israel
rather than casting a veto.
Adding to Israel's isolation was the recognition given
to the Palestine Liberation Organization by many
countires. including the nine-member European Economic
Community, as "legitimate," "moderate" and "peace-
seeking." The world conference of the UN Decade for
Women in Copenhagen, originally conceived as an in-
ternational forum to discuss the status of women, was
politicized by pro-PLO, Arab and Third World factions
and disintegrated into a barrage of anti-Israel rhetoric.
Throughout all this, however, Israel and Egypt
continued to try to work out a plan for autonomy on the
West Bank and the Gaza Strip within the framework of
the Camp David agreements. Formal diplomatic ties were
established and the two countries exchanged am-
bassadors. Nevertheless, Egypt suspended the autonomy
talks, demanding "clarifications" from Israel regarding
Jerusalem and the settlements.
By year's end, the autonomy talks were on the verge
of resuming again and a tripartite summit meeting was on
the agenda after the Presidential election in November.
Around the World:
Anti-Semitic activity was widespread in many
countries around the world. The most dangerous situation
was in Iran where Ayatollah Ruholla Khomeini's
government imprisoned some 100 Jews, executed a
number of Jewish communal leaders and businessmen and
confiscated Jewish property worth millions of dollars.
There was also an upsurge of neo-Nazi activity in a
host of countries, including France, Wwest Germany,
Switzerland, Brazil and the United States, and a number
of terrorist atrocities against Jews in Europe and South
The nine member states of the European Economic
Community meeting in Venice adopted a declaration
acknowledging the right of Palestinian self-determination
and calling for the participation of the Palestine Liberation
Organization in the Mideast peace talks.
Following the adopting of a resolution by the UN
Security Council demanding that Israel withdraw from all
occupied territories, including Jerusalem, and calling on
all countries that have embassies in Jerusalem to remove
them, 11 Latin American countries, Holland and Haiti
began moving their embassies to Tel Aviv.
The Soviet Union continued its harassment of
Jewish activists and prospective Jewish emigrants.
During the Olympic Games, Soviet authorities cleared the
cities of Jewish dissidents. By year's end, Soviet
authorities had reduced to a trickle the number of Jews
allowed to emigrate. Prisoners of Conscience continued to
languish in jails and labor camps.
The American Scene:
The United States was in the throes of the
Presidential election campaign during most of the year.
Democrats and Republicans sought to woo Jewish voters
with pledges to continue support for Israel and not to
recognize the Palestine Liberation Organization until it
renounces terrorism against Israel and accepts United
Nations Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338.
President Carter came under increasing fire from Jewish
leaders for U.S. abstentions in the United Nations on anti-
Israel resolutions.
The Jewish community and its leadership was
preoccupied, in addition to its traditional concern for the
security and well-being of Israel, with such I

Mayors Hit
UN Actions
NEW YORK The mayors of
two major American cities, who
recently visited Jerusalem, have
deplored the "one-sided" actions
of the United Nations in con-
demning Israel last month.
Major George Voinovich of
Cleveland, in a letter to President
Carter, and Mayor Ernest Morail
of New Orleans, in a statement
released this week, condemned
the "unwarranted attacks" on
Israel and noted that the United
Nations has in effect questioned
Israel's right to exist by
denouncing its presence in
Jerusalem, which has been part
of Israel since it became a nation
in 1948.
BOTH MAYORS took part in
a three-day International
Conference of Mayors in
Jerusalem last April, co-
sponsored by the U.S. Conference
of Mayors, the Institute of
Jerusalem Studies and the
American Jewish Congress. The
mayors' statements were made I
public by the American Jewish
In his letter to President
Carter, Mayor Voinovich wrote:
"Nothing more clearly illustrates
the direction that the United
Nations is taking in the one-sided
action of this supposed
representative body in con-
demning Israel. While I take no
position in the statement by the
Israeli government that
Jerusalem is now the capital of
the nation, I do take issue on the
unwarranted attack on Israel
because of the action taken in
this regard.
"Vitriolic statements such as
were thrown about in the United
Nations, especially by enslaved
territories and other countries
that practice no freedom
whatsoever, and in many cases
violate fundamental human
rights, do not serve the purpose
of a genuine peace. I therefore,
request that you seriously
evaluate whether the United
States should remain a member
of the United Nations under
these seemingly hypocritical

statement: "The United Nations
