Former Secretary of State
Henry"' Kissinger "Blamed
the worsening economic
conditions in the West
caused by the "oil prob-
lem" as party responsible
for the upsurge in anti-
Semitism and neo-Nezism.
In the public mind,
certain problems, such as
the West Bank, have "be-
come a copout and surro-
gate for everything else,"
he told a standing room
audience of more than 1,500
persons at Congregation
B'nai Jeshurun. He said
this is expressed in the be-
lief by some that, "If only
not for Israel and the Jews
i there would not be an oil
Kissinger was responding to
questions from Rabbi William
Berkowitz of B'nai Jeshurun in
one of the special Presidential
Election "Dialogue 80" series at
the Manhattan congregation.
Berkowitz stressed that the
special dialogues were held "not
to endorse but to educate.
NOTING THAT independent
candidate John Anderson had
appeared in a "Dialogue" session
Oct. 12, Berkowitz said President
Carter and then-Republican
candidate Ronald Reagan would
have appeared but for the change
in their schedule caused by the
nationally-televised debate. He
said Kissinger appeared at the
election eve session at Reagan's
In addition to the oil problem,
Kissinger blamed the rise of anti-
Semitism and neo-Nazism also on
the growing use of violence in the
world and on organizations like
the Palestine Liberation
Organization "that have a vested
interest in organizing distrust of
the Jewish community."
But Kissinger warned that to
allow anti-Semitism and anti-
Israel activities to succeed would
endanger all of the world because
it would show approval of the
strong oppressing the weak. "It
is no accident that Jews have
been in the forefront of the
struggle for justice and
equality," Kissinger stressed. He
said Jews "know from ex-
perience" that when minorities
are endangered they become one
of the first victims.
AS FOR the PLO itself,
Kissinger stressed that since
1973 he has opposed any U.S.
negotiations with the PLO and
does not believe that the U.S.
should deal with it "even if it

The Jewish community of Pinellas County was shocked and
stunned at the untimely death of two stalwart citizens
who perished in the recent disaster that befell 100 families due to

our Jewish community.

Marilyn Katz and Susan Diner, chairwomen of Womens
Educational Day, to be held on Monday, Jan. 12, at
Congregation Beth Choi, Seminole. have been busy finalizing
plans for the daylong program and luncheon. Womens Day, co-
sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Pinellas County and the
Womens Council of Presidents, offers the Jewish women of
Pinellas County the opportunity to join each other for a day of
education and intellectual stimulation, according to Mrs. Diner
and Mrs. Katz. Highlights of the day will include hnouledgable
speakers on topics such as cults, nutrition, leadership training
and the role of the Jewish women in the '80s, and the ways in
which they affect the lives of the family.
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, 304 South Jupiter
Ave., Clearwater, FL 33615.
Dear Mr. Bernstein:
My wife and I recently moved from New York City eight
months ago. We are both lonely and my wife is depressed. We
are used to a close community with many Jewish neighbors.
Friendships were developed quickly. Are there really many
Jewish people living here? Are they mostly elderly? How can we
meet more people?
Dear Mr. V.:.
It is not unusual to experience a "culture shock" associated
with any major move. Current estimates of the Pinellas County
Jewish population ranged between 10,000 to 15,000 individuals.
Although many are over the age of 60, approximately 50 percent
are young married couples with families. The Jewish community
is spread throughout the county, rather than concentrated in
one neighborhood and this makes it more difficult to find
friends. I would suggest the option of joining social and religious
programs offered at our various synagogues and temples, as well
as contacting the Jewish Community Center. Should your wife
need counseling, Jewish Family Service has offices in Clearwater
and St. Petersburg. Incidentally, you might be interested in
knowing that the Jewish population of the Tampa Bay area is
one of the fastest-growing in the entire country.
Sincerely, Mr. Bernstein

Friday. December 5. 1980
Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum, of the American
Jewish Committee, has observed that there can be no
more appropriate theme for Chanukah, 1980 than
"eight lights for human rights." We agree.
Chanukah commemorates the victory of Judah
the Maccabee over the massive armies of the Syrian
Empire, and then the rededication of the Holy
Temple in Jerusalem which the Syrians had defiled.
It is also true that the Maccabean victory was
the first successful triumph in the struggle for
human rights, particularly for freedom of conscience
and pluralism, in the history of mankind.
In line with Rabbi Tanenbaum's suggestion, we
can only hope that Chanukah, 1980 will heighten the
consciousness of the Jewish people, and that of many
others, to rekindle the Maccabean spirit in today's
To clarify the theme in modern terms, it might
be worthwhile to speculate an what might have
happened had the Syrians defeated the Maccabees. It
is conceivable that Judaism might have perished
and with it therefore Christianity and Islam, too.
The Rabbi is on target when he says that, in-
stead of cursing the darkness, let Chanukah be a time
to light a candle for life and hope.
Pledges and Performance
Ronald Reagan will become President of the
United States Jan. 20, 1981 with perhaps having
made stronger campaign commitments to Israel than
any of his predecessors. He has stressed that he
believes the United States not only has a moral
commitment to the Jewish State, but that he con-
siders Israel an ally and a strategic asset in the
Reagan has also promised to continue the Camp
David process, to support a united Jerusalem under
Israeli sovereignty and not to negotiate with the
Palestine Liberation Organization, which he has
pointed out, he has no problem labeling as a "ter-
His close aides have stressed that these were not
just campaign pledges, that Reagan's support for
Israel goes back to the creation of the Jewish State
long before he ever thought of entering politics.
But Reagan, like all new Presidents, will find
that once he enters office he will be buffeted by
opinions from all sides.
Reagan, like the man he has just defeated
President Carter, enters the White House with little
foreign policy experience. That is why it is so un-
fortunate that top-ranking members of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee like Jacob Javits (R
ST ,Frank Church P- Idaho) and Richard Stone
ID.. Ha.) were also defeated in this election. Both
were among the leading supporters of Israel in Con-
gress. Their counsel may be sorely missed as the
Reagan Administration begins to feel its way in the
complicated issues of the Middle East as the
foreign policy Establishment on Capitol Hill
provides Mr. Reagan with logical" reasons to welsh
on his campaign promises.

What troubles me is that we're

take delight in the fact that Amy
Carter broke strategic ground for

The one Reagan-Carter debate
on the eve of the election has
already revealed to an anxious
nation the extent of Amy's intel-
lectual contribution to the
shaping of her father's policies on
nuclear energy. Judging by
Jimmy's report on that con-
tribution, her input to his com-
puter memory bank on atomic
physics, we must conclude that
she is a whiz.

Sisco said he had expected to
find a lot of "pessimism" on the
West Bank. He did come across
"a certain amount," but was
struck "with the fact that they
have not foreclosed their own
participation in a solution that
they would find acceptable."
He also indicated that West
Bank leaders, despite their pro-
PLO rhetoric, were far from
totally supportive of the PLO. "I
did not find any of these leaders
particularly anxious to look at
arrangements that would have
the effect of supplanting their
own leadership with Palestinian
leaders coming from outside the
West Bank itself," he said.
"Now, this is a very critical l
judgment because the con
tentional wisdom that one reads
in our country today is that the
leadership of the West Bank is
for all practical circumstances,
foreclosed. I don't accept that
particular j udgement.''

broadening the Israeli-Egyptian
peace treaty to include other
Arabs will be difficult, but he

"with internal survival." He
noted that Assad clearly regards
recent domestic troubles,
especially those coming from the
Moslem Brotherhood, as very
serious" as are Syria's bur-
dens in Lebanon.
But Sisco felt that the Syrian
leadership might yet be in-
terested in pursuing "an
opening" with Israel if it were to
"develop in a way which
Damascus felt was fruitful.
"I saw no signs of any im-
mediate interest in entering into
the peace process tomorrow, or
next week or next month," he
continued. "But neither did I see
any sign in Damascus with its
over-reliance on the Soviet
Union, with its isolation, with its
new moves toward Libya that
it had closed the door to being
part of the process."
SISCO, who as a Slate
Department official has been
barred from meeting with
members of the PLO. wanted to
talk to them during his recent
tour. "I did this consciously
because I felt it was important
for me to hear their views first-
hand. I felt it was important for
any experienced practitioner to
try to assess, to the degree one
can. what their views are."
But he was not satisfied with
Sisco repeatedly asked the
same questions: "What leader
can speak for you? What leader
can act for you? Above all, what
leader can enter into an
agreement with Israel which will
allow Israel to have some
assurance that such a leader can
make it stick?
"The reply I received," he
continued, "was quite un-
satisfactory. Clearly, there are
divisions within the entire PLO.
There are doubts as to who such a
leader could be. Many times, the
answer from my interlocutors
was (Yasir) Arafat. Yet when we
get into the details of the recent
PLO meetings in Damascus,
there was ambiguity."
Israel Due to Receive
$785 Million in U.S. Aid
By HELEN SILVER
WASHINGTON (JTA) The House Foreign
Affairs Committee and the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee went into conference to consider the foreign
aid bill for fiscal year 1981. Under the proposed legis-
lation, Israel would receive $785 million in economic
support funds and $1.4 billion in foreign military sales
EGYPT IS recommended to receive $750 million in
support funds and $550 million in military sales credits for
the fiscal year. In addition, it would receive $274 million
under the Public Law 480 Food Program.
The only other Middle East country slated to receive
a significant amount of aid is Jordan which would get
$100 million evenly divided between economic support
funds and military sales credits.
Israel Prime Minister Menachem Begin addresses 621
American Jews planning to make aliyah to Israel within the
next two years at an Aliyah Assembly in New York on Nov. 15,

Minister has made a direct appeal for American aliyah while
visiting the United States.
Affirmative Action Name of the Puzzle
How to advance the status of
minority group persons without
penalizing industrious and hard-
working members of America's
majority constitutes a challenge
the Supreme Court says it will
1 tackle anew in the next few
Affirmative Action is the name
of the puzzle.
In three memorable efforts, the
Court has tried to find an
equitable way through the
complex of competing interests.
Lawyers, business men, and
leaders of civil rights groups are
still studying the rulings in the
Bakke, Weber, and Fullilove
cases for guidance. This term, the
Court will be occupied with
Minnick v. California Depart-
ment of Corrections.
IN THE new case (Minnick),
two white male corrections of-
ficers are challenging the
California prison system devised
to increase the number of
minorities and women among
prison employees. The plaintiffs
had sought promotion only to
find themselves blocked by the
Affirmative Action guidelines.
The learned jurists will have to
do considerable head scratching
this time around.
And while the Court is moving
towards a decision, it is worth
noting that some black leaders
who have been the staunchest
supporters of Affirmative Action
and have benefitted perhaps
more than members of other
groups, seem now to be having
second thoughts. For they find
that Affirmative Action con-

"There is the danger of groups
hurting one another by needless
competition," Eleanor Norton,
director of the Federal Equal
Commission, observed recently.
And another civil rights official
put it this way: "The major
problem is that many of the black
activists have no understanding
of the problems of sexism, and
many women's groups have no
understanding of racism."
IN ANOTHER important
development, six of the nine
Supreme Court justices have
given a strong boost to the
principle of Affirmative Action.

Since June 1980, along, some
40 different attacks generally
attributed to neo-Nazi grouplets
have taken place in France,
including those against Jewish
institutions. Yet in no instance
over these past years, or more
recently, have the French police
ever managed to bring anyone to

A synagogue bombed on holiday eve
"Kike,your hour has come.'.'.
To a Jewish friend in France:
My friend, I feel your pain and I share your anger. The explosion at the
synagogue on Rue Copemic has been heard throughout the United States. Those
who murdered innocent people on Simhat-Torah, in Paris, attacked us all.
For the first time since Auschwitz and Treblinka, Nazi murderers set out
to kill Jewsonly because they were Jews.
You have been told by the French people that "We are all Jews." And we
are grateful to them for this act of solidarity. Nevertheless, numb with outrage
and horror, we must ask: why? How could this happen? Perhaps we are
being told something by events; something we have been afraid to understand.
When the cynical rhetoric of the United Nations, day after day, tells us
that "Zionism is racism!'. .When Israel's right to exist is continually challenged...
When nearly a hundred books have been published in a dozen languages calling
the massacre and burning of six million Jews "a lie" and "a hoax!'..
Then perhaps these "new" Nazis may feel they are following a trend that they
have some claim, however twisted, to legitimacy.
Is it not time for people of good conscience, everywhere, to recognize the
face beneath the mask? To recognize that even passive assent to intellectual
racism leads the way to open anti-semitism and murder?
How else explain the resurgence of organized Nazism all over the world?
You have your Nazis and, apparently, weall of ushave ours. But these
disciples of Hitler must be denied even the semblance of support. They must be
denied the dignity of dialogue. They must be cast out from civilized society.
In attacking you, my Jewish friend in France, the killers have issued a
warning to all of us.
As ftstor Martin Niemoller, the German theologian, said:
"First the Nazis went after the Jews, but I was not a Jew, so I did not object.
Then they went after the Catholics, but I was not a Catholic, so I did not object.
Then they went after the Trode-Unionists, but I was not a trade-unionist,
so I did not object. Then they came after me, and there was no one left to object/'
terhaps the killers think we have forgotten our history.
I write this letter to assure you-and them-that we have forgotten nothing.

Brand Name Foods Offer Holiday Treats
Many Chanukah gift lists will benefit from Honey-Fig Loaf
rakes. Homemade for special friends, these loaf cakes keep
moist longer than many cakes. A good alternative to very
Fig Cake For Holiday Gifting
At last an alternate to the very expensive fruitcakes for
gift-giving at holiday times. Whether it be for a Chanukah or
other remembrance, this Honey Fig Loaf Cake is an ideal small
gift since it keeps well, especially if refrigerated or frozen. The
spicy cinnamon, clove, allspice flavorings combined with sweet
exotic chopped dried figs and nuts makes a tasty, though not-
too-rich cake. It is great for snacking with a glass of tea or cups
of the special spiced coffees. Note that the recipe makes two
loaves: make one for your own family's enjoyment.
Here's a food processor hint from the California Dried Fig
Advisory Board: Remove stems from dried figs and add figs
with half the sugar called for in the recipe to the food processor
bowl. Turn motor on and off quickly several times to chop finely.
If you don't have a processor, use kitchen scissors, dipping them
into hot water frequently to chop figs easily.
Dried figs are one of nature's most wholesome natural fruits
and they offer more calcium than any other fruit, in addition to
the fiber that is so necessary in our modern diets. They are also
storehouses of the quickly assimilated energy sugars of fructose
1 cup sugar
1 cup honey
2 tablespoons oil
3' cups unsifted all-purpose flour
l'/i teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon each allspice, cinnamon
11 teaspoon cloves
1 cup finely chopped dried figs
(in grinder or food processor)
1 cup finely chopped nuts
In a large bowl, mix eggs, sugar, honey and oil. Stir in flour,
baking powder, baking soda and spices. Fold in figs and nuts.
Pour batter into 2 greased and floured loaf pans. Bake in a pre-
heated slow oven (300 deg. F.) for 1 hour or until firm to the
touch in the center. Unmold and cool on racks. Cool thoroughly
before cutting into slices. Makes 2 loaves, 8'/4x4'/ix2! 1.

Here's our suggestion for a delightful, light, low-calorie

Bacteria Can Teach Us About Energy
Purple Bacterium, which loves the Dead Sea. is
arousing the curiosity of scientists. Dr. Benjamin
KhfMaberg, a biophysicist at Bar I Ian University,
is among those trying to find out how this bac-
terium munuges to convert light energy into
chemical energy to sustain life. The chemical
energy can be found in a molecule in the bac-
terium, he believes.
His experiments have led him to understand
the mechanism by which protons (hydrogen ions)
are pumped out of the molecules (bacterium
rhodopsin) and collect on one side of sheets of the
bacterium creating energy potential. When the
protons return they activate the process.
Dr. Ehrenberg, who uses the scattering of laser
light in his experiments, is also studying the
mechanism of vision the changes which happen
in the eye after absorption of light by the pigment

Report Cards and Honors
The Pinellas County Jewish
Day School distributed report
cards for the first time on Friday,
Nov. 7. These documents were
custom designed to explain the
most about the children in a
minimum of words. On the report
cards grades are not assigned to
broad categories such as
Reading, Hebrew or Math, but
rather to individual skills that
together form the broader subject
category. In this way it is hoped
to project a clearer image of each
child's abilities and needs.
Report card time also marks
commendation time. Certificates
were distributed to students who
performed on a high academic
level. Owing to the school's stress
on individualization, which helps
many children perform to a fuller
degree of their potential, a large
number of the students were so

in September with an enrollment
of 25, has grown, as of Sept. 27,

In the words of Deuteronomy,

The Pinellas County Jewish
Day School has announced its
plans for the 1981-82 school
years. At that time a third grade
class will be added to the school.
The school will open a second
kindergarten when 21 students
have been registered for that
grade. No class will exceed fifteen
students. Applications have
already been printed and are
available at the school office.
Parents are welcome to request
them by writing to the school at
301 59th Street North in St.
Petersburg, Florida 33710 or by
calling the school at 381-8111.
A new brochure, which
describes the school, is being
developed. The new brochure will

photographs and prose to un-

The Pinellas County Jewish
