his new presidential term

irael tone, and was
tinted that von Wachmar

w;
President: Thank you, Mr.
d. I am fully aware of the
at there are a great many
resolutions adopted by the
General Assembly that deal with
the same thorny problem. I am
aware of the fact that there are
other resolutions of the Security
Council that deal with the same
broad subject. And I am also
aware of the fart that there are
efforts by groups of states to
name but one, the European
Community to be helpful in
the same respect. Therefore, my
reference to Res. 242 (1967) may
have sounded incomplete. It was
meant about the press conference
that you referred to part of a
"plan."
Question: May I deal with the
same subject? Your declarations
have touched off widespread
concern in the Arab and Third
World quarters, both here and in
the area. As a matter of fact, an
Arab League spokesman, Dr.
Maksoud, described your
declarations as inappropriate and
not matching your sensitive
position as a spokesman of the
international consensus reflected
in the General Assembly. Indeed,
the Arab spokesman went so far
as to say that your declaration
did not even match your coun-
try's position, which he said "has
been most specific and more
positive.'' What is your comment
on this?
The President: I think I have
Answered this question in
responding to Mr. Scotland's
question, which was almost
identical with yours because he
was referring to the same press
conference. I am willing to repeat
what I said in answer to Mr.
Scotland, but the transcript of
this press conference will be
available later and I should like
to refer to that.

Question: Do you expect a
challenge to Israel s credentials?
The President: What I do or do
not expect is a good question.
Frankly, I have not seen or heard
of any move in this direction, but
expectations and facts are not
always the same. A president of
the General Assembly has to be
ready for surprises.

UNITED NATIONS -
(JTA) The newly elected
president of the 35th ses-
sion of the General As-
sembly, Ambassador Rudi-
ger von Wechmar of West
Germany, expressed the
hope in an address here
that the Assembly will be
able to contribute to "a
just, secure and lasting
peace between Israel and
her Arab neighbors, in-
cluding the Palestinians."
Von Wechmar, a 57-year-old
former journalist, was elected by
acclamation. His election marks
the first time a German has been
chosen for the prestigious post,
and, in the view of diplomats and

DURING World War II. von
Wechmar served under Field

In response to a Jewish
Telegraphic Agency question
regarding von Wechmar's service
in the army of Nazi Germany, a
spokeswoman for the West
German UN Mission here said
the Ambassador's only response
was to point out that for five
years from 1969 to 1974 he
was one of Chancellor Willy
Brandt's closest aides and his
spokesman.
Brandt, a -leader of the
Socialist International, has been
a relentless fighter against
Nazism and neo-Naziam.
National Recognition
To Pinellas Leader
Fred Sichel, chairman of the
nominating committee for the
Council of Jewish Federations
and Welfare Funds, the co-or-
dinating organization of over 250
Federations in the United States
of America, recently announced
that Charles Rutenberg of
Pinellas County has been
nominated to the Board of
Directors of the Council.
Sichel, in nominating Ruten-
berg. stated, "He has been a
source of strength to all of us and
we are fortunate to be able to
avail ourselves of his wise and
experienced leadership."
The Council of Jewish Federa-
tion's purpose is to serve as the >
central instrument; to do jointly
in their behalf, with important
savings, what each community
otherwise would have uAdo
separately: to take joint action
on common purposes; to help
strengthen the work and impact
of Jewish Federations and
Welfare Funds.
The Council is governed by the
General Assembly, consisting of
delegates chosen by the fenber
community organizations in pro-
portion to their Jewish
populations, annually deter-
mining the Council's policies,
program and finances. The
General Assembly stoats
Charles Rutenberg
officers and Board ot Directors.
More than 2.000 community
leaders from all parts of the
United States and Canada share
in these actions and discussions,
and in joint planning to deal with
their mutual concerns.
Within the framework set by
the Assembly, the ongoing work
of the Council is guided by the
Board and by 26 communities,
which meet quarterly. The com-
mittee work involves a total
membership of more than 2,000

WASHINGTON -
(JTA) Sen. Henry Jack-
son ID., Wash.), whose
support of Israel has been
unquestioned in his long
political career, has indi-
cated annoyance with pub-
lished speculation that he
did not mention Israel in
his address to the B'nai
B'rith International con-
vention because he is
"angry" with Prime
Minister Menachem Begin.
Under headlines such aa "Why
Senator Jackson Was Mum on
Israel" and "Some Hear Thunder
in Jackson's Silence," sections of
the American Jewish press
carried the report from their own
Washington correspondent that
began "How angry is" Jackson
with Begin? The report noted he
had spoken about U.S.-Soviet
relationa, Soviet Jewish
emigration, Afghanistan, the
strikes in Poland, and the energy
crisis but "nothing about Israel."
JACKSON'S OFFICE dis-
missed the report as "an in-
vention" and as "utterly
ridiculous." Dorothy Fosdick, a
principal assistant to Jackson,
said she told the report's author
that "You're inventing the whole
thing. You don't have a story
there."
Jackson, Fosdick said, "is very
close and very loyal to Begin"
and that "personally, Scoop is a
good friend of Begin" Jackson's
nickname is "Scoop."
Asked for a comment on the
allegation he is angry with Begin,
Fosdick replied. "It's utterly
ridiculous. He doesn't have to
answer stuff like that."
Independent observers noted
that while Jackson did not
mention Israel in his address,
.neither did Australian Prime
Minister Malcolm Fraser whose
credentials in support of Israel's
government are similarly
unquestioned.
JACKSON RECEIVED
standing ovations before and
after his speech to the B'nai
B'rith, Fosdick noted. He
discussed the elements about
which he is the Senate's foremost
expert Soviet Jewish
emigration and the problems
stemming from U.S. dependence
on Middle East oil.
In an interview with The
Washington Star two months
ago, Jackson criticized the
"timing" of Israel's establish-
ment of new settlements on the
West Bank, but in the same
interview he said "the set-
tlements are not illegal," which is
contrary to the Carter
Administration's position.

Raising Money Is the Means
Saving Lives, Building a Nation
Editor's Note: Recently, a group of concerned individuals met t >
start the planning process for the 1981 Combined Jewish Appeal
Campaign of the Jewish Federation of Pinellas County. It uvs
evident that there is a prevailing feeling throughout the com-
munity that Pinellas County has not done its best in educating
the community as to what the Combined Jewish Appeal is all
about.
Below is an interview with Gerry Rubin, the new Executive
Director of Federation, who is assisting Saul Schechter, the 1981
Campaign Chairman, in preparation for what is hoped to be the
most successful campaign in Pinellas County's history.
Gerry Rubin. "Our prime pur-
pose, which we hope to achieve
through our annual campaign, is
to save lives and build a nation.
Money is the means and the only
means permitted the Jews of the
free world to accomplish this
great responsibility."
Susan Schechter. "Gerry, that is
a very profound statement. Can
you illustrate how our money can
save lives and build a nation?"
Gerry Rubin. "The Combined
Jewish Appeal dollar is divided
up into many portions, servicing
needs and providing life-giving
programs by hundreds of Jewish
organizations to millions of
oppressed Jews throughout the
world. One example is the
following true account of a family
of Jews who had to 4lee their
homeland because of the
"horrendous crime" of wanting
to be Jewish. Representatives of
the United Jewish Appeal and
the Joint Distribution Com-
mittee, both beneficiaries of the
community's Combined Jewish
Appeal Campaign, one Thursday
morning were waiting to greet a
group of Jews who had literally
been purchased out of oppression
and were being brought to
freedom. The sky was cloudy, the
rain drizzled lightly but
penetrating to the very bones,
the day was dark. As the train
with the refugees finally arrived,
the immigrants disembarked in a
strange land, but in a land where
they would be free to continue
their journey to Israel, their
ancestral homeland.
One of the first to get off the
train was a woman with three
children. She ran to the United
Jewish Appeal Joint Dis-
tribution Committee
representative, took his hand,
kissed it with emotion and
said, "thank you America." As
her three young children were
looking on. bedraggled,
exhausted and bewildered, she
started to cry profusely. When
she was finally calmed, with the
help of sedation, we were able to
hear her story.
After three years of waiting for
an exit visa, of being without
work, of moving their family
from apartment to apartment, of
being unable to secure any
financial assistance other than
what was made available by
other Jews, they had received
their visa to immigrate to Israel -
a visa bought and paid for by the
State of Israel.
The family was told that they
had 48 hours to prepare for
departure. Their visas had been
issued only as a family unit and
valid only if every member
of the fmaily moved together.
The husband, who had con-
tracted tuberculosis, had been
warned by doctors against
moving. It could cost his life. The
husband begged of the
authorities to let his wife and
children go on the visa and that
he would follow when stronger.
"You move as a family and you
move now" was their response.
"Or you will go through the
entire procedure again and wait
for separate visas."
Fearful for the life and future
of his wife and children, the
family made their decision. They
made the decision for life for
Israel for freedom for a future
for their children.
Once they were on the train,
the strain took its toll! The hus
band died There were several
check-points to pass before
reaching freedom. The wife knew
that if her husband would be
found dead, that the whole family
would be pulled off the train and
he would have died for naught.
The newly widowed woman
and her three children decided to
continue their bid for freedom, as
it was the last wish of their
husband and father. Undaunted,
the widow and her three children
carried on imaginary con-
versations with the dead man in
order to deceive the guards at the
check-points. The woman and her
children, for a considerable
amount of time, carried on this
charade: but their efforts were
not in vain, for now they were
free and on their way to a land
where to be a Jew is not a crime -
to a land where they would be an
equal citizen with equal op-
portunities for a chance at life
and happiness.
As the woman cried, she said.
"Although my husband will not
live in Israel, at least he will be
buried there and at least he
died knowing that he had given
his wife and children the chance
to be free."
"This is only one story." said
Gerry. "There are thousands, if
not millions of stories of how our
money saves lives and builds a
nation."
Susan Schechter. "Many of us in
Pinellas County are asked only to
give money. We are not told the
whys and how the money is
spent. Would you, from the files
of the many organizations that
our money supports, relate
stories for each subsequent issue
of The Jewish Floridian T'
Gerry Rubin. "I wish there were
no stories. I pray that the day
will come that Jews throughout
Susan Schecter
the world will be able to look after
themselves. But that day is not
here yet and as long as we are
asking the Jewish Community of
Pinellas County to feel Jewish
and by so doing, help other Jews
who are in trouble, there will be
facts that must be relayed to the
community."

Religious Hypocrisy
The Bailey Smith statement in the name of the
Southern Baptist Convention of which he is
president is the height of arrogance. Whether or not
God listens to the prayers of Jews is presumptuous
speculation. Mainly, it is a theological question with
metaphysical overtones. Whatever one's religious
belief, whether yea or nay, is a matter of pure faith. It
is not subject to the limited perceptions of mankind,
whose puny intelligence can merely deal with
physical evidence.
Smith's positive assertion demonstrates just
how puny his own intelligence really is. Having sim-
plified the incomprehensible, the Baptist leader
betrays himself as a bigot his protestations to the
contrary that he is not "antiJew." Even in this
affirmation of his innocence, Smith joins hands with
the arrogance of non-Jewish history that has judged
Jews guilty of one crime or another from deicide to
infanticide and sentenced Jews to excommunication
from the community and eternal suffering.
Speaking in the name of God, non-Jewish
history has made its judgments come true in a sea of
blood and agony. The Baptist leader is not a unique
phenomenon; he is the true son of his heritage. Let
those of his co-religionists who now criticize him
demonstrate once and for all that they have aban-
doned their chutzpah or hold their forked tongues.
Otherwise, their sympathy in this moment is
sheer hypocrisy.
A Case of Miscasting
Those who watch Vanessa Redgrave in the
Arthur Miller opus next Tuesday night on CBS
television documenting the life of Fania Fenelon will
have to reckon that they support this gruesome
marriage of message and spokesman by the simple
act of watching it.
Redgrave is a Palestine Liberation Organization
supporter. To play the life story of Fania Fenelon,
the Auschwitz heroine, is to defile the agony and the
passion of the Jewish and other victims at the hands
of Nazi atrocity in that concentration camp.
The CBS view to the contrary is sheer
materialistic contrivance. Spokesmen for the net-
work who talk about Redgrave's artistry are
hypocrites with an eye on the cash register.
Fania Fenelon herself has repeatedly pleaded for
a change of cast on the basis that it is a gross
violation of the sacrifice of the victims of Nazism. Of
this horrifying miscasting, Fenelon herself calls it "a
nightmare."
CBS is guilty of a callous disregard for her story,
her feelings, her life, in addition to an insult to those
who died at Auschwitz.
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.
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
mam 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.

Michael Bernstein is executive director of Gulf Coast
Jewish Family Service. He has extensive professional training in
treating individual and family problems and will be happy to
answer all letters received in this column. Please address all
letters to Gulf Coast Jewish Family Service, 8167 Elbow Lane,
\urth. St. Petersburg, Fl. 33710.
Dear Mr. Bernstein: *
I am a woman in my late fifties and have been a widow for
over a year. I had a wonderful marriage, and it now is a struggle.
I am often lonely and depressed. I have two wonderful married
children living in Ohio and New Jersey. They visited in the
beginning, but are now busy in their own lives. What can I do
about feelings of loneliness and depression.
Dear Mrs. J.:
Mrs.J.
Many women and men in our area are going through the
crisis of losing a mate through divorce or death. The feelings of
loneliness, anxiety and depression are magnified with many
being isolated from other family members who live in a northern
state. You did a good job as a parent if your children up north
are adjusting well and you should be proud. Depression is often
related to feelings of frustration and isolation. Why not join our
Jewish Community Center Singles Group or contact a local
synagogue to inquire about social groups. Local universities
such as St. Petersburg Junior College offer interesting
educational seminars. Depending on your income, there may be
the possibility of job training sponsored through CETA. Also
the availability of group or individual counseling at Gulf Coast
Jew ish Family .Service as a support system.
Sincerely.
Mr. Bernstein

Traditions Set at Day School
When beginning a new school,
as is the Pinellas County Jewish
Day School, everything that is
done sets precedents and
traditions for the future.
Knowing this, the teachers and
administrators are ever cognizant
of the implications of their deeds.
School traditions set thus far
include close communication be-
tween teachers and parents,
special assemblies to mark
special events, and special meals
before holidays.
As for the future, other
traditions are also to be set. One
planned is a closer working
relationship between the school
and the entire Jewish com-
munity.

UJA Holds First Singles Mission
"All my life I denied my
Jewishness. I never understood
the deep ties between Judaism,
Israel and my own life. On this
mission, for the first time, I was
proud to be a Jew. ril never make
light of my Jewishness again."
In a meeting room of a Tel
Aviv hotel, a 24-year-old woman,
her voice trembling with emotion,
rose to announce her first gift to
the United Jewish Appeal. She
was followed to the microphone
by 93 other young men and
women, most visiting Israel for
the first time aa members of the
first UJA Singles Mission.
Before the mission, these dec-
larations of commitment would
have been impossible. The
majority of the young men and
women, ranging in age from 21 to
46, were out of touch with or-
ganized Jewish life and Feder-
ation activities in their 20 home
communities.
The concept of a Singles
Mission was initiated at the UJA
National Young Leadership Con-
ference in Washington, D.C.. last
spring. The mission's co-chair-
men Ellen Brachman,
Chicago, National Mission's
chairman for the Young Women's
Leadership Cabinet, and Carl
Kaplan, Washington, D.C.,
Region II chairman for the
Young Leadership Cabinet
were convinced that the UJA
could "turn on" a group of en-
thusiastic but uninvolved young
Jewish singles by innovative pro-
gramming. The idea caught on
among other singles attending
the conference, whose recruit-
ment efforts resulted in capacity
participation.
The group's itinerary covered
the length and breadth of Israel
from Jerusalem to Golan, from
the Galilee to Masada, and in-
cluded special briefings by high
government officials as well as
informal encounters with a cross-
section of Israel's people from
children at a UJA-supported day
care center to olim (newcomers)
at an absorption center.
Three separate hospitality pro-
grams in Jerusalem with a
singles professional group, in
Haifa with single male and
female naval officers, and a
pioneer kibbutz give mission
participants a chance to meet and
get to know their Israeli counter-
parts. At the Jerusalem event.
the young Israelis were so eae*
to meet the UJA group thatlM
came to an event to which only M
had been invited.
At a border settlement (J
group was overwhelmed win
kindness and hospitality. "The,
are struggling just to start bi
they strung up brightly color*
lights and prepared a picnic
dinner for us. The whole kibbuu
came out to welcome us, all 25 of
them. We easily outnumbered
them," Kaplan said.
Mission participants, evenly
divided between men and women,
represented a wide range of
trades and professions, including
attorneys, teachers, social
workers, bankers, doctors, sales
people, travel agents, engineers,
secretaries, and computer
analysts.
"Our fund raising efforts were
tremendously successful," sa id
Mission leader Ellen Brachman.
"There's no doubt that the
mission experience succeeded in
changing the attitudes of most of
the participants. They started
out unaffllliated and unconcerned
Jews. They returned committed
and caring."

The Pinellas County Jewish
Day School held its first
assembly on Wednesday after-
noon, Sept. 10.
Held in honor of Rosh
Hashanah, the Jewish New Year,
the assembly featured a program
of Jewish music, the reading of a
story by the school principal, and
a special presentation by the kin-
dergarten. Students were treated
with the traditional apples and
honey, as well as with challah,
twist bread, that they had
learned to prepare the day before.
RON DINER: Ron Diner is
typical of the many involved
newcomers to Pinellas County
who, in their city of origin, were
not heavily involved in Jewish
activities. Ron's involvement was
limited to participation in Jewish
community functions provided
by the Jewish Federation in
Buffalo. Things changed for
Diner upon his arrival in Pinellas
County, when he realized that the
abundance of Jewish organiza-
tions and Federation activities
were not there for his choosing as
they were in Buffalo. "I really did
not think that it was so im-
portant to me," said Ron, "until
it wasn't available. It was then
that I made a personal decision
that if I wanted my family, my
children and my community to
have all the opportunities of
growing up in a Jewish environ-
ment that I had, then it was
incumbent upon me to become
involved."
Ron had realized that as his
parents and grandparents had
accepted the challenge to provide
a total Jewish community that he
would benefit from, then he had
to take their example to endeavor
to create the same environment
in Pinellas County. "I could not
just sit back and criticize; com-
plaining would provide nothing
for the community. I remembered
Ron Diner
a statement made many years
ago by someone near and dear to
me. Everything is within the
reach of everyone, provided there
is a strong enough desire for it."
Diner started to involve
himself in the activities of the
Jewish Federation of Pinellas
County due to his deep sense of
commitment and was elected to
the Federation Board of
Directors in 1979, a position he
still holds. Due to his background
and his Master's Degree in Busi-
ness Administration, which he
received from Columbia Uni-
versity. Ron was a natural
candidate to be elected to the
Officers Group of Federation in
19K0. as Secretary of the Fed-
eration. Kon has been a catalyst
in the re-organization of Fed-
eration and is a valued member of
the administration committee,
chaired by Stan Newmark.
Diner, who is by profession a
vice president of Pittway Keal
Estate, resides in Clearwater
with his wife Susan and their
children. Eric. 7, and Abigail. 3.
He is a concerned individual.
This concern for all those less
fortunate than we resulted in
linn's accepting a co-chairman-
ship of the United Wav campaign
in 1979.
In commenting on Diner's
involvement and dedication.
Reva Kent, president of the
Jewish Federation of Pinellas
County, stated that "The con-
tinued flow to Pinellas County of
business and professional people
who are prepared to lead by
example and accept respon-
sibility of leadership as Ron
Diner has. augurs well for a great
future for the growing Jewish
population of Pinellas County
and their families."

You should know Senator Stone is an
influential member of the Senate Foreign
Relatbns Committee and is the chairman of
the Subcommittee on Middle East Affairs.
NO ONE who might replace him would be
a friend to Israel. Senator Javits & Senator
Church, Israel's other friends on that
committee, are fighting for their political
lives. Between "bom-agains" and oil
interests, Israel's support in Washington is
rapidly eroding. It is vital to Israel's interest to
send Senator Dick Stone back to
Washington.

Vote October 7
Democratic primary
Senator Dick Stone
Make the effort -
it will make a difference.
