Mr. Dines topic was "What We
Will Face in the Next Four

support of Israel has become a bi-

for Israel will be the direction the

U.S. Middle East Envoy Sol
Linowitz, completing his final
mission on behalf of the Carter
Administration by visiting Presi-
dent Sadat in Egypt and Prime
Minister Begin in Israel, said he
warned the Israeli Cabinet "the
United States would deeply
regret" any move by the State to
annex the Golan Heights.
Linowitz later said he has sug-
gested to Reagan advisors that
Henry Kissinger become the new
envoy. Kissinger is visiting
Begin and Sadat this month.
Two bills to annex the occupied
Syrian territory to Israel came up
before the Cabinet last week and
were defeated. As a result, Begin

against Palestinian terrorist
bases during which three Syrian
soldiers were reportedly killed. It
was the first time Syrian soldiers

Israel's deputy defense minister,
Mordecai Zippouri. apologized to
Syria for the death of its three

WASHINGTON (WNS| -
A final settlement of U.S. claims
resulting from armed action by
Israel's forces 13 years ago
during the Six-Day War against
the American naval vessel, USS
Liberty, has been made with U.S.
government acceptance of
Israel's proposal to pay $6
million damage to the ship. The
State Department said Dec. 18
Israel will pay three annual
installments of S2 million each,
beginning next Jan. 15 "as final
settlement of the U.S. claims for
compensation for damage to the
USS Liberty." The State Depart-
ment said "the government of
Israel paid in>full in 1968 the US
claim for S3,-$23,500 on behalf <

addition, *in 1969, the govej
ment of Israel paid in full

the Liberty's crew."
The ship was damaged by
Israeli fighter aircraft on June 8,
1967 while off the Sinai coast and
the Egyptian town of El Arish
which was being shelled during
the Six-Day War. American
casualties were 34 dead and TB
wounded. The Liberty's naval
role was that of a com-
munications monitor, sometimes
known as a "spy ship." John
Trattner, State Department
spokesman, said. "The incident
was thoroughly investigated in
1967 by the U.S. Navy." He
noted that "the government ot
Israel immediately accepted
responsibility" and attributed
the actions to "error and con-
fusion." Trattner added that the

Women's Division of the
of Pinellas County
THE MIRACLE THAT
fri(lav. January 2, 1961
The Jewish Floridian of Pinellas County
Jewish leaders in America have
been asking for decades now.
Where will our new leaders come
knowing that a new
reneration often is indifferent to
the heritage of its people, or takes
too little interest in its survival.
But just as new leaders have
somehow always emerged, so are
we now developing a Jewish
leadership of which the American
Jewish community has every
reason to l>e proud.
Such a leader is Maureen Rose-
uater. who is unique in every
respect. She is young, vigorous.
miensly Jewish in commitment
and thought, aware of her
responsibility as a Jew. and a
woman drenched in 'Yid-
Maureen is a Cleveland girl.
and received her Jewish educa-
tion at Park Synagogue. Her
parents Max and Eleanor
Herman, instilled a strong sense
ol tamily in Maureen and her
Mster Sandi. as evidenced by
Maureen s sense of devotion to
her husband and children. She
met her husband. Stan, while
they were in high school, and just
before Stan began medical school
at Ohio State University, they
were married. After graduation,
the Kosewaters did a stint in the
Air Force and thereafter became
residents of Clearwater.
Since then. Maureen has
become a vital part of the
I'inellas Jewish community.
Why a Women's Division?
"he question most often raised during the actual I
-ilintation is. Why a separate Women's Division?'' Many of I
the younger women, especially those involved in the women's v
movement, have expressed the sentiment that a separate
Women s Division is another example of sexism and keeps I
woman tar removed from major decision making processes.
Seasoned leaders, on the other hand, are thoroughly aware of |
ineir role in the campaign and the major impact they make. I
Many of these women, however, often find themselves at a loss I
when confronted with that often-asked question. Their sen- $
timents and understanding are in the right place, certainlv. but 1
verbalizing this commitment can at tunes be difficult, especially
under the pressures of a solicitation.
Women's Division: Moral Responsibility, Not Plus Giving
Women's Division started as a gimmick to raise plus dollars I
some 30 years ago and was so successful that it became a per- |
manent and vital part of the General Campaign. In 1979, we
raised over $120 million. I'm not sure we can any longer consider ?|
this kind of money "phis giving."
I've never liked the idea or even thought of my own com- I
mitment as the plus gift. Plus giving is tokenism, monies raised 1?
through cake sales, bazaars, and rummage sales. We've grown
ix'vond that. We conduct a year-round sophisticated Campaign -*.
<>t education, constantly developing new ideas and techniques. I
and using top talent and resources.
My commitment, as I mentioned, is not made as a plus gift |
to my husband's, nor does it have primarily to do with my being I
a woman. Mine is a moral responsibility that I. as a Jew. must 1
assume simply because I have no choice certainly not if I am I
concerned with the Jewish survival of my children and their |
children after them. The justification for Women's Division is I
'he same as for any other women's organization. Women are a I
part of the community, live in the community, and have a I
' Sensibility to the community.
Almost every Jewish woman in America has some money I
~he can call her own. Not an inheritance or an income from a I
lamily business, but her household allowance or her personal g
spending money or her charge accounts.
At Campaign time the question often arises. "Why
separate women's gifts?" Some women who are so forceful in
seeking their rights in business, in the professions, in the arts,
and in the voting booths should not try to abdicate their respon-
sibilities in this particular vital area of compassion and
In the traditional Jewish family one never heard the ex-
pression, "My husband gives." The Jewish mother classically
accepted it as her obligation, not as a woman, but as an in-
I "'"dual in her own right to be her brother's keeper. In fact, it
was she, rather than her husband, who filled the "pushke"
boxes that hung on the wall and which were for Israel and the
The Women's Division is the modern expression of this
\ ancient womanly involvement. It is a matter of evolution and
\ refinement of technique, not a new purpose or concept. We
ij cannot overlook the fact that through a woman's involvement
?me8 the education of the family, and often a woman has a pro-
\ 'ound influence on her husband. This is why, when asked. "Why
| a Women's Division?", we respond in typical Jewish fashion
I with another question: "How can women not give of themselves
and their funds for Jewish survival?"

The Power of Faith
MORRIS H. KOBINETZ
A most critical phase in the
history of the redemption is
discussed in the Torah portion of
this Shabbat. Moses is dismayed
at how his first attempt to effect
the deliverance of the Israelites
ended. Instead of the hope for
deliverance, he had only suc-
ceeded in increasing the anger of
Phamah. Not only did Moses
despair at the outcome of his first
mission, but the people indicated
I Ex.6:9) Moses spoke to the
children of Israel: but they
hearkened not unto Moses, for
impatience of spirit and for
cruel bondage. Moses was im-
bued with "Faith"; the children
of Israel were not.
The first principle of Judaism
is "Faith." The story of Judaism
and the children of Israel began
with acts of faith. The Patriarchs
had faith in the one God, it was
their faith which made possible
our existence today, made the
Jew the bearer of the Divine
message to mankind.
What is Faith? Writers during
many eras of human history have
attempted to define the word.
Faith is the summit of the
Torah "wrote Ibn Gabirol.
An inscription in a Cologne
cellar where Jews hid from the
Nazis reads: "I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining. I
believe in love even when not
teeling it." "I believe in God even
when He is silent."
Faith is the eye that sees God.
the heart that yearns for
Him. Faith is the very soul of
religion, an image of eternity.
Faith is one of the seven at-
tributes that minister to the
throne of glory. They are: Faith:
Grace: Compassion; Truth and
Peace. I will betroth you unto Me
in faith and you will know the
Because of his faith, the Jew
has been scorned, tormented and
tortured. It is difficult to con-
ceive a single chapter in the
history of civilization as inspiring
as Israel's faith in his God.
A courage born of faith surges
