Levesque's Remark About jews Campaign Results Highest Ever
Gets Community's Dander Up
MONTREAL (JTA) The Jewish community is
disturbed by Premier Rene Levesque's remark at a press
conference last Friday implying that Jews and those of
Anglo-Saxon background are not true Quebecers.
Explaining that he has not appointed a Cabinet minister
of Anglophone (English-speaking culture) background
because he did not want to indulge in tokenism, Levesque
"The community of Anglophone background, as well
is the bulk of the Jewish community, Darcy McGee
tiding being the perfect example, made no move in our
direction at all."
DARCY McGEE RIDING is part of the Cote St. Luc
district which is 95 percent Jewish. In the last provincial
flections it reelected Herbert Marx, who is Jewish, to the
Juebec National Assembly by a margin of more than
217,000 votes.

Fate of Mrs. Ryan

tration camp guard. The case in-

Dost eight years ago, is accused

guards in what has become the
Kindest Nazi war crimes trial. It

A DEFENSE lawyer asked the
fcourt this week to free Mrs.
plyan, claiming that witnesses
had not proved that she had
taken part in the alleged atroci-
ties and could not make a
positive identification. The
lawyer also tried to get her
acquitted on grounds that she
was being tried twice for the
same crime.
Mrs. Ryan was sentenced to
three years in prison by a court in
Vienna in 1946 on charges which
included torture and mistreat-
ment of prisoners in Maidanek
and in the Ravensbrueck con-
centration camp where she had
worked since 1939 before being
transferred to Maidanek.
However, the prosecution
claimed that the Vienna court
case and the present case involve
different charges. The prose-
cution has asked for life im-
prisonment for Mrs. Ryan for
being directly involved in the
murder of 100 children and the
selection of 1.080 prisoners in
Maidanek to be gassed in 1943.
State Dep't. Sees No Contradition
In Action Against Libyans in U.S.
IJTA) The State De-
partment sees no con-
tradiction in the United
states order closing the
-ibyan diplomatic mission
|ere for misconduct, "in-
bluding support of in-
ternational terrorism,"
'hile continuing to allow
the Palestine Liberation
Organization to have an in-
formation office here.
The State Department an-
nounced that all 27 Libyan diplo-
matic personnel and their
families had been ordered to leave
the United States by midnight
May 13. The Department accused
Libya of "provocation and mis-
conduct, including support of in-
ternation terrorism."
DEPARTMENT spokesman
Dean Fischer said at the time
that the U.S. has "been con-
cerned by a general pattern of un-
acceptable conduct" by the
Libyan Embassy in Washington
"which is contrary to inter-
nationally accepted behavior.
Reagan Administration officials
listed alleged efforts by the
Libyans to murder opponents of
the country's leader, Muammar
Qaddafi, and Libyan activities
against the governments of
Chad, Egypt and Sudan.
The campaign of The Com-
bined Jewish Appeal of Pinellas
County Federation has raised
more so far this year than the
$580,000 raised all of last year.
Mr. Saul Schechter, 1981 general
campaign chairman, announced
that up to press time the 1981
Campaign has so far raised
$710,000, which represents the
largest amount ever raised in
Pinellas County. Combined
Jewish Appeal leaders and
workers still expect that the 1981
campaign can reach the $1
million mark which is so urgently
required if our community is to
meet its local, national and over-
seas obligations. Mr. Schechter
has made a special plea to the
1,500 households in our County
who have not yet contributed to
the campaign to do so now.
Mr. Schechter went on to state
that it is a well established fact
that among the non-contributing
Jews in Pinellas County, there
are quite a substantial number of
very wealthy individuals, who
give nothing to their local federa-
tions or to the United Jewish
Appeal. In fact, they stay away
Saul Schechter, 1981 General
Campaign Chairman
altogether from Jewish com-
munal life. The Combined Jewish
Appeal UJA campaign con-
ducted by the Federation has so
far not been able to reach many of
the more affluent individuals in
our community. Saul continues
by saying that in this year's cam-
paign, the most heart-warming
experience that he has experi-
enced, has been the outpouring of
generosity and concern for
Jewish survival in Pinellas
County and in every part of the
world where our CJA funds are
required, by individuals who did
not contribute in the past to our
once a year campaign.
"We have 600 new contribu-
tors so far this year," reported
Reva Kent, president of the
Jewish Federation of Pinellas
County, stated that the success
of the 1981 campaign is to no
small extent due to the dedica-
tion and personality of Saul
Schechter general campaign
chairman. Saul, a charming
and modest man of deep spiritual
Jewish commitment, has brought
a revival spirit to our campaign.
His innovative ideas and un-
shakeable belief that the Jews of
Pinellas County really care about
those less fortunate than them-
selves, has contributed greatly to
the success of this campaign.
Britain a Haven for World Terrorists?
London Chronicle Syndicate
LONDON A disturbing re-
port on the involvement of the
British extremist group the
League of St. George in in-
ternational terrorism and anti-
Semitism was presented here in
the London Weekend Television
program, "Credo."
According to the report, the
League represents Britain on the
New European Order (an in-
ternational grouping of Fascist
organizations), maintains close
contact with leading figures in
European terrorist campaigns
and raises money for extremist
groups which cannot openly raise

been present at a summit meet-

last year at the Cafe Den Anker
in Bruges, Belgium, which "gave
the green light to the stepping up
of terrorist activities in Europe.'
Groups implicated in three
subsequent bomb attacks are
known to have close ties with the
At least two members of the
now proscribed Italian Fascist
group, the New Order, are being
held by police in connection with
the bomb attack on the central
Bologna railway station in
August, in which 82 people died.
A prominent New Order member,
Walter Pilo, has visited Britain
and addressed League of St.
George members.
In September, a bomb outside
the Munich beer festival killed 14
people, among them Gundolf
Kohler, the man said to have
planted the device. Kohler waa a
member of another illegal or-
ganization, the Nazi Hoffman
Group, and "Credo" showed a
picture of him with the group's
military instructor, Arndt Heinz

charges, has also addressed

No longer welcome in Iran,
thousands seek freedom here
Iranian Jews in the U.S.: more
than 25.000 Jews have emigrated
from Iran to the United States
Since the change of the regime
there. About 15.000 of them livt
in Los Angeles: more than 3,00(
reside in New York: the remaind
er have settled in other largt
Their arrival to this country
was almost unnoticed. Thev came
quietly and without publicity.
Most of the immigrants are
middle-class people. Their
emigration to the United States
did not cost Jewish organizations
in this country anything.
They did not seek any financial
assistance en route to the United
States although being
classified by U.S. as Refugees"
fleeing from oppression, or fear of
oppression they were entitled
to the same assistance given to
immigrants from the Soviet
Union. Nor did the U.S. govern-
ment pay the cost of their trans-
portation to this country, as is
the case of refugees from the
Soviet Union.
Upon reaching the U.S. they
practically resettled themselves
independently. Classified by the
government as Refugees," they
were entitled under the 1980
Refugee Act passed by Con-
gress and signed into law by
President Carter last March to
have their resettlement sub-
sidized partly by government
funds through the local Jewish
communities where they settled.
However, only a few of them
chose to apply for assistance
from the local Jewish welfare
agencies. In New York, some of
them receive such assistance
from agencies of the federation
Jewish philanthropies.
The aid they seek from the
Council of Jewish Federations,
JDC, HIAS is aid to have
their status adjusted from that of
a Refugee" to that of a "Per-
tmanent Resident Alien".
A refugee must reside in the
United States one year before he
can apply for such an adjust-
ment, but many of the Iranian
Jews now in this country would
like to go abroad for business
reasons before the year expires,
and they do not want to travel on
Iranian passports, even if these
passports are still valid.
Under The 1980 Refugee Act,
those seeking adjustment of their
status must meet normal admis-
sion requirements for immi-
grants. Once granted, the lawful
resident status operates retro-
actively to the date of the
refugee's arrival in the United
States. In terms of eligibility for
naturalization the refugee is thus
not disadvantaged by the waiting
The Washington office of The
Council of Jewish Federations,
representing the organized
Jewish communities in the U.S.,
is now engaged together with
other Jewish organizations in
the effort to secure the change in
status which the Iranian immi-
grants seek. Negotiations to this
effect are being conducted with
the proper government agencies.
Their religious problem:
Another problem brought to the
attention of American Jewish
leaders by the Iranian Jewish im-
migrants is the absence of
American synagogues to suit
their style of religious obser-
vance. This is a very important
problem for them.
Having lived in a community
which is one of the oldest in
Jewish history Jews dwelled in
Iran for about 2.500 years the
newcomers are deeply rooted in
ancient Jewish religious
traditions which they do not find
practiced in this country.
But what do trley discover?
Thev come to the synagogue with
their children and find no chil-
dren of American Jewish families
there during the services This,
they fear, may affect their tradi-
tional family lifestyle. They are
afraid that their children may
become "infected" and even-
lually estranged from them.
Being as religion is a funda-
mental part of their Jewish
heritage as well as part and
parcel of their cultural life, they
believe established of their owr
synagogues is a major necessity
In this they seek advice anc
support from the organize*
American Jewish community.
Their contact with home: then
were about 70,000 Jews in Iran
before the upheaval in 1978.
Today there are only about
30,000 Jews there. Most of them
are poor. There were some 15,000
beneficiaries of the joint distribu-
tion committee in Iran in 1978
before the Moslem religious ex-
tremists took control of the
Some Iranian Jews now settled
in this country are maintaining
contact with relatives and friends
in I ran by letter and even by tele-
phone. They are told that the re-
maining Jews there feel them-
selves no longer in the danger
they were during the grim period
of the end of 1978! And that some
hope they will he able to continu*
to live in peace in Iran.
Those --till planning to
emigrate will, however, continue
to meet no difficulties in securing
entrance visas to the United
States as long as an anti-Jewish
atmosphere in Iran continues.
The 0.8. immigration and na-
tionality law includes Iran among
the states in the Middle East
whose oppressed residents are
eligible for U.S. visas as refugees.
The Pinellas County Combined
Jewish Appeal campaign funds
assist (through the campaign's
beneficiary agencies) not only
Iranian Jews seeking aid, but
also Jews from Europe and Latin
America. There are no full page
headlines for this quiet rehabili-
tation of refugees as has been
the custom of Jewish communi-
ties throughout the world we
continue to accept our responsi-
bility to those who require our
help with quiet dignity. Your gift
dollar to The Combined Jewish
Appeal Campaign helps make it
all work. Without it, the world
wide rescue program would not
be possible.

you. Support generously the 1981

Assistant News Editor

A vandal claiming to be a "Son
of Hitler" scrawled swastikas
and the names of several Nazis on
the seats, blackboard and walls of
the Chester Howell Ferguson
Hall auditorium this weekend.
According to University Police
spokesman Randy Gonzalez, the
UP are baffled as to how the
vandal got into the room.
"Its really hard to say how
they might have gotten in there.
The door was supposed to be
locked, and there were no signs of
forced entry or lock tampering.
We are still investigating the
matter." Gonzalez said, adding
that there were no classes or
activities scheduled in the au-
ditorium this weekend.
The names "Hess. Ley, Goef-
fer. Goering and Himmler" were
written on chairs, in addition to
the slogan "Hitler Lives, Jews
Although one chair was signed
"Son of Hitler." the UP said the
incident was not necessarilv
connected to the "Sons of Hit
k-r." a neo-Nazis group which has
claimed responsibility for several
acts of vandalism at USF over
the past two years.
(ionzalez said this incident
differs from other cases of
vandalism by the "Sons of Hit-
ler" in that the group usually
writes slogans in paint, not chalk.
The "Sons of Hitler" emerged
at USF in January 1979. when
several staff members received
threatening phone calls and had
their cars and houses vandalized.
In October 1979. the group
vandalized the office of a Jewish
professor at USF. covering the
walls of his office with anti-
Semitic slogans.
No one has been charged in any
of those incidents, and Gonzalez
said the UP has no lead in any of
the cases at this time.

But They Love the Jews, Don't They?
Bruce Bokor
The future of the Jewish people depends on the dedication
of our young men and women who, through their commitment
will continue to carry on the traditions of their heritage and be
willing to assume leadership positions in their communities
Bruce Bokor exemplifies those ideals upon which rests the hone
of our future. *^
Bruce is young, successful in his chosen profession, and
committed to helping those whose lives have been touched by
problems and adversity. Bruce is one of the few among us who
was born and raised in Tampa, where his parents Milton and
Esther still reside. He attended the University of Florida and
the University of Florida Law School, where he graduated with
honors. He also attended New York University, where he earned
a Masters Degree in tax law.
Bruce is a member of the Law Firm of Johnson, Blakely,
Pope, Bokor, and Ruppell, located in Clearwater. He is Past
President of the Pinellas Estate Planning Council, and a mem-
ber of the Board of the Florida Bar Tax Section.
Bruce had a double good fortune six years ago. He attended
a Rolling Stones concert in Winter Park, and while there, met
his wife Joanne. Joanne comes from Jacksonville, and attended
the University of Florida, where she displayed her exhuberance
and enthusiasm as Captain of the cheerleading team.
After their marriage, the Bokors lived in Miami, and then,
four and a half years ago, moved to Pinellas County. They have
one son, Brian who is two and a half.
Since moving here, Joanne and Bruce have distinguished
themselves as people who care, and who believe that "we are
responsible one for the other."
Bruce is a Past Vice-President of Congregation Beth Sha-
lom in Clearwater, a past member of the Board of Trustees of the
Jewish Federation of Pinellas County, and a Co-Chairman of the
Legal Division of the Combine Jewish Appeal. Bruce is the
Chairman of the newly formed Pinellas Endowment Fund, which
is responsible for the development of the Endowment Program,
the promotion and education regarding endowment, and the
eventual allotment of Endowment funds. It is expected that this
fund will help serve the growing needs of our community by pro-,
viding a sturdy financial base. When Bruce was asked why he
devotes so much of his time to the Jewish community, he said
"There is a need to be filled in our growing Jewish community
here in Pinellas, in Israel, and around the world. It is not enough
to profess beliefs, but rather what we do about them that
Joanne is equally involved in volunteer activities. She is a
Past President of the Sisterhood of Congregation Beth Shalom,
a board member of the YMCA, and is active in both ORT and
the National Council of Jewish Women. She is, in addition, an
ardent worker for the Women's Division of the Jewish
Pinellas County is indeed fortunate to have the Bokors, who
with their energy and enthusiasm, will surely be among the Jew-
ish leadership for a long time to com*.
A number of activists in the
Moral Majority have taken great
pains to deny any anti-Semitic
sentiments. There is no reason to
suspect them of duplicity; for the
most part, they are without guile.
They really don't believe they are
anti-Semites. Thus, Rabbi
Joshua Berkowitz forwards to us
a letter which appeared in the
Darien (Connecticut) News of
January 22, written by Pastor
Anthony L. Gibson of the
Calvary Baptist Church. Pastor
Gibson, after identifying himself
with the Moral Majority, avers
that, "We love the Jewish people
and respect them as friends and
neighbors." So far, so good.
Moving right along, and doubt-
less simply ignorant of the im-
plications of what he is saying
(Rabbi Berkowitz makes those
implications clear in his letter of
reply), the Pastor has it that,
"One way that we show our love
for our friends is by sharing our
faith with them. We would like all
Jews to recognize that Jesus is
their Messiah and that it is
possible to be a Jew for Jesus."
But that's just for openers.
The more interesting case of the
month is that of the Reverend
Dan C. Fore, chairman of the
New York state chapter of the
Moral Majority. Interviewed in
the New York Times of February
Italian Encyclopedia
Sued For
Racist Slander
ROME (JTA) Edith
Brack, a well-known Italian
Jewish writer and former concen-
tration camp inmate, has sued
the "Encyclopedia Curcio" for al-
legedly slanderizing Jews. The
publication defines a Jew as "a
person who is stingy, greedy,
sordid and usurious."
Brack, who is of Hungarian
origin, took legal action after
reading a letter in the Rome
daily, La Republica from a group
of Italian Jews who accused the
Encyclopedia Curcio of slander-
ing the Jewish people. The ency-
clopedia also lists "Zionism" as a
synonym for "Judaism" which,
according to Brack, perpetrates
an "historical falsehood which
has been used mostly to mask
new forms of anti-Semitism."
5, Reverend Fore observes, "I
Sove the Jewish people deeply.
God has given them talents He
has not given others. They are
His chosen people. Jews have a
God-given ability to make
money, almost a super-natural
ability to make money They
control the media, they control
this city."
Isn't it nice to be loved?
(Reprinted from the March-
April edition of Moment

Although Judaism teaches a belief in Providence and that
G-d forsees all our actions, yet it does not deny a certain amount
of Freewill within the framework of destiny.
Rabbi Akiba taught {Perek 3. Verse 19fEverytbing is
foreseen, yet freedom of choke is given. Our Sidra provides the
alternative of obedience to G-d's Torah and of receiving
blessings, or disobedience with the story of man's first dis-
obedience. It was his own choice which banished him from the
Garden of Eden?
Life, whether it is to be for our benefit or rain, happiness or
misery, all depends on the use we make of our days on earth.
Fire burns our fingers, but it also cooks our food.
The sun can give sunstroke, but it also purveys health.
Judaism insists on the belief in reward and punishment, if
not in this life, then certainly in the Life Hereafter. Let men do
good and be patient. For the mill* of Providence grind slowly,
but they grind exceedingly small.
Behind the detailed laws of the evaluation of each man at
the different stages of his development which are outlines in our
passage is the central idea that in the eyes of G-d each man has a
place and a value. Unto each a job of work has been given in the
task of making earth a replica of heaven. He who maketh p1
in his high places, as we say in the Kaddish, wishes us to make
peace on earth. On the contribution made towards this end
depends man's real value.
No two people, not even twins, are exactly alike. Therefore
we are told not to judge another unless we know AD the cir-
cumstances which led him to act as he did. The Talmud, answer-
ing the question, Why was man at first created by himsolf, also
stresses the value of the individual. For it answers: To teach
thee that he who destroys one Ufa hi as if he dsatroysd a world
fall of people; sad that he who eaves one soul, saves a whole
Did not the whole of manking descend from one common
ancestor? All are equal in Judaism.
The Torah declares: One law shall there be onto yon. Each
man has a right to say: The world was created for my sake.
An Open Letter To The Community
Reva Kent, President of the
Jewish Federation.
This is a special appeal for contributions on
behalf of the Combined Jewish Appeal which
represents the less fortunate and the victims of
I am writing to you as the president of the
Jewish Federation of Pinellas County to let you
know that our Federation is conducting its annual
Combined Jewish Appeal, Fund Raising Cam-
paign on behalf of our fellow Jews here in Pinellas
County and throughout the world.
We are conducting this campaign in the spirit
and tradition of our people who, throughout then-
history, have demonstrated their concern for the
welfare of all people. We can point with pride to
the life sustaining work conducted by the Joint
Distribution Committee and HI AS, as well as our
local community agencies in providing comfort
and life giving services to our fellow Jews in need.
We have continually supported the flight to free-
dom of the Soviet Jews, Iranian Jews, as well as
Jews coming from numerous countries, too many
to mention. We have supported the efforts of the
State of Israel in accepting these refugees when
other countries of the world refused them.
The Jewish people of Pinellas County feel a
special affinity to the oppressed Jews of the
. world. Pinellas County Jewry has always done its
share in partnership with Jews throughout the
free wold in proclaiming that no Jew will be pro-
hibited from practicing his religion in freedom of
hunger and threat of persecution.

sales of $7 million in bonds sold during the first four
months of 1981. This represents a 14.7 percent in-

nificant that record sales are achieved at this time.
Israel Bonds are a major instrument in promoting
Israel's industrial and agricultural progress and are
sold in the United States, Canada, Western Europe
and other parts of the free world.
Despite high interest rates and unfavorable eco-
nomic conditions in the United^ States and other
countries where Israel Bonds are sold, friends of
Israel continue to express their support by pur-
chasing substantial amounts of four percent bonds
and other instruments.
In addition to Jewish community support, the
1981 figures show an increase of participation in the
non-Jewish community. Purchased by banks, em-
ployee benefit funds, labor unions, insurance
companies and other institutions demonstrated then-
confidence in Israel's economic future and the im-
portance which they attach to reinforcing the eco-
nomic foundations of Israel as a stronghold of
democracy in the Middle East.
Such confidence can not come at a more critical,
and welcome, time.
Jewish Cemetery Desecrated
PARIS (JTA) The Jewish cemetery of Bagneux
on the outskirts of Paris was desecrated on the eve of the
French 'Deportation Day" when ceremonies are held to
commemorate those who died in Nazi concentration camps
in World War II.
Eighty gravestones in the cemetery were daubed
with swastikas and slogans, such as 'Death to Israel,"
"Death to the acid-throwers," and "Revenge for the
attack." The last two slogans referred to an attack on a
neo-Nazi who lost his eyesight after alleged Jewish acti-
vists threw acid in his face.
Most of the slogans on the gravestones were signed
Federation of European Nationalist Action (FANE), the
outlawed neo-Nazi organization, and bore the organi-
zation's insignia.
The International League Against Anti-Semitism
and Racism called on the country's next Administration
to take all possible steps to prevent similar attacks from
taking place.

Frieda Sohon and the Education
Committee of the Jewish Federa-
'ion of Pine lias County from Lisa
Bush. Lisa was priviledged to
receive a scholarship to go to
itudy in Israel from the Jewish
Federation and the Irving Sohon
Memorial Fund.
Dear Mrs. Sohon,
I ve been home for one month
after spending nine wonderful
months in Israel. To describe all
my experiences would be a task.
However. I want to attempt to
explain how deeply discovering
my roots touched me. I hope that
you convey my feelings to the
entire educational committee.
I learned that I had a Jewish
identity at the age of six. My
parents sought to prepare me for
my confirmation by sending me
to Hebrew school. I remember
thinking, why do I have to do
Like everything changes, so
did I. Part of my interest in
Judaism came from the example
set forth by my parents. My
father's love and dedication to
American Jewry meant so much
to him that all I wanted to do was
emulate him. Finally, I myself
began to take the initiative in
Jewish organizations by serving
as programming vice-president of
both United Synagogue Youth
and B'nai B'rith Youth Organi-
zation. I had finally accomplished
one goal. My identity as a Jew
became self-imposed.
I came across another chal-
lenge in college. I realized that I
was not religious, but I felt a
stronger tie with my own people.
I therefore pledged a Jewish
sorority. I stayed at the Univer-
sity of Florida pursuing a B.A. in
political science for three years.
But for some reason, something
was missing. As a political
aciancs major I studied various
governments and world situa-
tions. With that knowledge
l>ehind me. I knew that I had to
go to the key country. Israel.
I spent nine months in Israel,
working on a kibbutz, traveling
the country, learning the lan-
guage and finishing up my re-
maining hours needed for gradu-
ation at Tel Aviv university. I

addition, in my free time I read
books pertaining to Jews in their
world environment. Israel gave
me as a Jew a sense of pride and
importance. Leaving was so dim-
cult. I debated about making

complished my second goal
Since junior high school I
worked at the Jewish Community
Center as a counselor, and in 1979
I was a unit head for Camp
Kadima. I enjoyed working for
the JCC and I had thought about
pursuing a career in Jewish
communal work. Nine months in
Israel confirmed the belief in my
mind and turned it into a reality.
Staying in the United States and
teaching Jews about the realities
of our destiny became and is now
my number one priority. I cannot
question now. I know what 1
have to do and that is to take an
active role in the Amerincan
Jewish Community.
Thank you so very much for
your support, both morally and

Dear Mr. Bernstein:
I am a middle aged man suffering from high blood pressure-
So many of my extended family and Jewish friends have a sim-
ilar problem. Is there a reason for this, or is it a coincidence?
Dear Mr. V:
According to research from the Jewish Communal Journal,
the Jewish population has a higher incidence ot heart disease
and hypertension than the general population. Among factors
identified in the high rate of hypertension is its relationship to
stress and diet. The best approach to combat these problems is
learning to relax and cope with dairy stress; avoiding excessive
fat and salt in the diet and regular viists to the doctor for early
detection and treatment.

Dear Mr. Bernstein:
Isn't It true that Israel refuse* to resettle Russian JewaT
Why does the U.S. always get stuck with the job?
Mrs W.
Dear Mrs. W.:
To date over 150.000 Russian Jews have settled in Israel.
Israel maintains an open and encouraging attitude in accepting
Kussian Jewish immigrants who are often escaping repression,
harassment, and torture. However, many Russian Jewish immi
-have family in the United Stales or strongly prefer to
i heir home here.

Outreach and Referral for Jewish Aged Remains Vital
Dependencies of aging are as
ipormal as those of youth. The
dlder Jewish individual finds
himself trying to adjust to
changed economic circumstances,
less physical independence, social
changes in his life, and possible
changes in his nervous system.
All of these changes tend to make
him more dependent on others.
Recognizing these needs a-
mong citizens in our community,
Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Service provides supportive
ervices via social work, outreach
and counseling. Basically, case-
workers are trying to arrange
programs that will enable the
riient to cope with problems
lnyund the realm of his-her or
his-her family's sphere.
In some cases, referral to a
ocal or state agency alleviates a
irge proportion of the problems
he client finds himself beset
,nh A number of situations re-
jiniv ongoing by caseworkers,
mil as the wife who cannot allow
er invalid husband to go to a
lursing home, even though she
I physical problems of her own.
(r and Mrs. A. were married for
>0 years when he became a victim
if a chronic, debilitating disease.
'or awhile, Family Service sent
Annette Raymund,
Social Worker
someone to stay with her hus-
band a couple of hours a week,
but Mrs. A. now feels that she is
the one who ministers to her hus-
bands' needs the best. She still
relies on a caseworker to discuss
her feelings and problems weekly.
Mrs. D. is a widow who was
placed in a nursing home after
she broke her hip. Gradually, she
became more and more
despondent to the point, where
the caseworker investigated oth-
er possibilities for changing her
environment. She had a sister,
who was in fair health, but also
elderly. It was finally arranged to
Esther Elkind
Homemaker Coordinator
have her move in with her sister
and to get someone in to help
bathe her as the sister did not
want a homemaker.
Caseworkers also receive calls
from landlords and managers
who know of no other support
systems for elderly tenants, such
as the case of one who called Jew-
ish Family Service to report that
a taxi brought a lady to the
motel. She told them she was un-
happy at the boarding home she
lived in and simply packed her
things and called a taxi. She
places her suitcase in a locker at a
bus terminal and the driver

helped her find a motel. For
someone 92 years old and quite
deaf, she was very determined.
State Social Services knew of her
case, but were not able to go out
and talk with the client for
awhile. Jewish Family Service
sent a caseworker to talk to her
and reassure her that another
boarding home would be found
that would please her. With the
state's help, one was located and
our caseworker revisited her a
number of times to be certain
that she was satisfied, a number
of weeks later, the client com-
plained again that she needed to
be in a home in closer proximity
to more activity in the neighbor-
hood. This time, we moved her to
a home bordering a busy street
and a bus line. So far, she is
happier to be near "more life."
Not all cases are as simple to
solve. For example, we received a
call that a lady who had made
several attempts at suicide was
very depressed again. One of our
caseworkers went to stay with
her and talk to her until we could
contact her daughter. For-
tunately, she was able to talk her
problems out and our worker
assisted her in changing her
living situation.
Some situations require
monitoring by a caseworker in-
definitely, such as the case of a
lady who lived for many years
with her sister and found herself
facing the world alone when the
sister died. It's been taking her a
long time to face this death of her
only companion in life and Jewish
Family "Service's caseworkers
have seen to it that she gets a nu-
tritious meal daily and has
Homemaker assistance. Oc-
casionally, she needs referrals to
appropriate medical people, but
the most important comfort is in
knowing that she can pick up the
phone and talk to her caseworker
once or twice a week or see her in
her own home.

Treatment of Ethiopian Jews
KARMIEL, Israel Baruch
Venger, Mayor of the new
development town of Karmiel, in
a letter to the American Asso-
ciation for Ethiopian Jews, com-
plained about the shabby treat-
ment given to new Falasha immi-
grants by the Jewish Agency in
"Upon their arrival in Karmiel
(Feb. 5. 19811. I learned that
about half of the families
numbering 47 souls) came to us
after having spent six months or
more at a Beersheba hostel
where minimal services were
given to them. I learned that no
attempt had been made to clarify
the needs of the families, the ages
of the adults and children; no of-
ficial papers were given to them
such as I.D. cards, oleh (immi

2nd Anniversary
Edith and Herman Dennis
Edith and Herman Dennis
celebrated their second wedding
anniversary with a special party
for their friends at the Golda
Meir Center. Friday May 8. The
Center is indeed a special place
for the couple for it was the sight
of their somewhat unusual be
trothal only two years ago. As
the story goes, amongst the
construction debris from the re-
novation work, a friend asked
Kdith why she and Herman
didn't get married. After all. it
seemed to everyone that they
were always together anyway.
Edith's answer was simple be-
cause Herman hadn't asked, but
that was no stopping a Yiddisha
mama. Their loving friend, Bea
Rudd took upon herself to ask
Herman. He said '* I Will" and
they did. They were married just
a few weeks later. Both Edith and
Herman are very active today in
the programs at the Golda Meir
Center and in many other com-
munity organizations.
of CRIF who led the delegation
said that a similar list ol
demands was also presented to
the opposition Presidential
candidate. Socialist leader
Francois Mitterrand.
included a promise on the part of
the candidates to close the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization
bureau in Paris, a halt to the sale
of arms to Arab countries and anr
end to the supply of enriched
uranium to Iraq.
Other demands included a
pledge to invite the Prime Minis-.
ter or President of Israel to pay
an official visit to France and to
follow this up with a visit to
Israel by the President of France;
a full disclosure of the results of
the investigation into the
bombing last October of the Rue
Copernic Synagogue in Paris;
and the status of teaching about
the "horrors of racism" in public
state-controlled schools that was
initiated after the synagogue
This is the first time in French
history that a representative
Jewish group has taken such a
public stand on the eve of nation-
al elections. Seven of the 10
demands dealt with Israel and
the Mideast and only three with
local Jewish issues.
SUCH OPEN lobbying is not
traditional in France, and some ol
Giscard s Jewish backers warned
that it might backfire. The Presi
dent's official spokesman said,
however, that Giscard assure'
the CRIF delegation that he ha>
never done anything which
might have endangered Israel's
Giscard. the spokesman added
also recalled that socialist leaders
have attended numerous PLO
demonstrations and meetings at
which the government was not
represented. The President alsc
said that "high level exchanges
of visit" could be considered after
the elections.
Socialist Jewish backers were
also skeptical about the CRIF
initiative, saying that even if
Mitterrand favored some of the
demands or most of the demands,
it might look awkward if he were
to accept them less than a week
before the May 10 vote.

illment of a divine imperative.
What seems to turn people off

Still, it is no news that people

gin simply gave voice to what
(then have been saying all along.
Hut Israel's Prime Minister is
it everybody. He travels a road
more exclusive and lonely
lhan most other people. He
limply can not permit himself the
ixury of spouting off at the
louth whenever it is likely to
uit his fancy.
Consider his most recent pro-
uuiuement: "Every German
hould be ashamed of their
phancellor (Schmidt)." My own
npulse is to ask why. A German,
liatever his feelings about Hel-
taut Schmidt at the moment,
fould not change them simply
ecause the Prime Minister of Is-
lei advised him to.
AND IF, say. he were ashamed
the Chancellor to begin with.

ted just to be perverse.

hen why has he done this
png? Is it news to him that
lancellor Schmidt fought in the
frman Army during World War
and therefore, by definition,
k an oath of allegiance to
Mf Hitler? Or that Giscard
Estaing is a sickening Gaullist
pwi in the very last fiber of his

)ih is the obvious answer. More
pisive, perhaps, is the view
Hillary to preachment that re-

nderstood in these terms, it
puld Ik- clear that the long-
inding Giscard betrayal of the
into Israeli alliance and the
re recent Helmut Schmidt
irtship of Arab favor have so
ipletely outraged Begin, so
ipletely frustrated him as
^politic dangerous to Israel's
ry survival, that he could no
|g* r contain himself.
BUT EVEN the best of in-

uki of Japan. One may argue
t Japan's anguish over
itrican policy toward its
uluaking economic successes
|i"t in the same survival cate-
as Israel's agony over the
>ral Western, acquiescence
ard Arab petro-muscle. But
Suzuki would hardly agree.
He sees our insistence upon
curbing Japanese auto imports,
together with our demand that
Japan continue to limit its high-
technology exports to the Soviet
Union at the same time that we
unilaterally lifted our grain em-
bargo to the Soviets, as threaten-
ing to his country's well-being.
He sees American policy in the
Pacific as returning to the double
standard of punitive and ar-
bitrary dictation against ex-
cellence. He sees it as protection-
ism in the name of American
productive mediocrity.
WHETHER OR not. in reality,
the problem is life-threatening to
Japan in the same way as, say,
the new French and German
policy toward Araby is life-
threatening to Israel, or the Rea-
gan Administration's proposed
sale of AWACS to Saudi Arabia
is life-threatening to Israel, re-
mains a matter of point of view
however "objectively" one
may personally believe that the
threat to Japan is hardly in the
same category.
Still, the parallel is effective if
only because it affords a clear
study in contrast between the
way in which Prime Minister
Begin and Prime Minister Suzuki
have reacted to a sense of danger.
There is no point in speculating
how Suzuki spoke to President
Reagan in the privacy of the
white House during their meeting
last week, say, whether or not he
lost hi; cool. We will never know
except as a matter of conjecture.
On the other hand, the Begin
pronouncements on the various
and sundry wickednesses of Gis-
card d'Kstaing and Helmut Sch-
midt will remain beyond the
realm of speculation forever. The
world press took care of that by
reporting with sanctimonious de-
light his pronouncements in
every aspect of their gruesome
and gory detail. Apparently, the
world press does not create
enough opportunity of its own to
humiliate Israel. Prime Minister
Begin had to give it yet another
IN THIS regard, one may join
Mr. Begin in arguing that "diplo-
macy be damned." One may
leclare. in extolling his virtues
,as a politician, that Mr. Begin
was honest, spoke his mind and
refused to resort to dissembling.
But so, too, are children honest.
So, too. do children speak their
mind in their experiments with
cruelty or self-destructive
behavior as they challenge the
adult world.
I suggest to such persons that
they read the Prophet Nathan
who delivered God's message to
the people of Israel that they
need no king, that they must not
U'come just another nation like
the nations who were their neigh-
This proposes that the Prophet
understood that there is a very
special language reserved for the
business of international govern-
ment. By its nature, the language
is duplicitous, wicked, immoral.
But that is the language, and to
speak another would therefore be
to speak jabberwocky. By failing
to communicate, it would
threaten the very survival of the
government which the specialized

York City was named in honor ot
former Sen. Jacob K. Javits at
ceremonies in Foley Square. The
building is the largest federal
building in the country outside
the nation's capital.
language is intended to preserve.
FOR THIS reason, the people
of Israel were implored not to
long for such a government or for
such a language. The people of
Israel, the Prophet was in-
structed to say, already have a
King, whose dominion is the
Kingdom of Heaven. Earthly
kings and puny nations, in pur-
suit of their puny and earthly
purposes, must perforce act in
immoral ways not favorable in
the eyes of God. This, warned
Nathan, is what God wanted Is-
rael to avoid.
In our own time, Nathan not-
withstanding, Israel has chosen
the way once embarked upon by
Saul, when Israel refused to heed
the prophetic warning to begin
with the way of secular rule
and therefore perforce of
duplicitous government and
armies and war and material
Arguing further in this biblical
vein, one might suggest that if
Israel is to be a light to other na-
tions, it must not be a nation at
all, and Prime Minister Begin,
the biblical scholar, knows all
this better than anybody.
MR. BEGIN might sit back in
these hours and feel justified that
the defeat of Giscard d'Estaing
as President of France on Sunday
is a sign that his preachment
was right. Or that the clobbering
on Sunday that the opposition
Christian Democrats handed to
Helmut Schmidt's party in West
Berlin spelling trouble for him
ahead is also a sign.
Nonsense. Both defeats in both
countries involved domestic po-
licies and can not be interpreted
as justification for what Begin
did. For him to continue to insist
upon Israel's nationhood at the
same time that he demands the
right to act as if Israel is not a
nation as if Israel is entitled to
spurn the rules of nationhood
as if Israel today chooses the
road urged upon it by Nathan is a
delusion more dangerous for Is-
rael than any other it may have
Prime Minister Begins biblical scholar
to face on some unnamed battle-
field in the days ahead.
Besides, what does he offer as
an alternative to the working
relationship between Jerusalem
and Bonn, Jerusalem and Paris,
however bitter these relation-
ships may have become? No rela-
tionship? That would be folly too
profound to consider.
Peace Forest for Beatles' John Lennon
News out of Tel Aviv has it
that Israeli children, with the co-
operation of Arab young people,
are planting a "John Lennon
Peace Forest" in the mountains
of the Galilee region in memory of
the 40-year-old Beetle who was
gunned down in Manhattan last
Dec. 8. The idea for th,e memorial,
according to press reports, came
from a group of Orthodox Jews
who emigrated to Israel from the
United States.
This proposal manages to
make a coherent response to
cynics who displayed inability to
grasp the core significance of the
Beatles when a troubled Mark
Chapman used a gun to write
finis to the life of a talented
musician. The project serves also
to bring our attention back to the
real and symbolic grandeur of
planting thousands of trees in
Israel, a cherished enterprise
associated indelibly with the
Jewish National Fund.
here: Young Israelis, aware of the
magic of the Beatles' songs,
honor the most creative of this
circle of musicians not by erect-
ing a monument of stone or plac-
ing a plaque in an odd corner of
Israel, but by giving young en-
thusiasm and a tender touch to a
living memorial.
To that venture they attach
I he name, Peace, and as partners
in their enterprise they invite
Arab youths in a shared concern
for rearing peace in an area so
long despoiled by gunfire,
violence, and terrorism. Let those
who scoff at homage paid to
Lennon and his Beatle brothers
be reminded that Hebrew trans-
lations of the musicians' lyrics
have long been top favorites of
many Israelis.
And what was the nature of the
denigration of John Lennon and
his associates, in the hours
following his death? "Lennon
promoted nonsense, narcotics,
nudity, and noise," wrote one
metropolitan newspaper
columnist. "He wast just a hap-
pening of meat and bones." And
an embittered associate professor
brought in the verdict, with more
care for grammar than for
Justice, that John Lennon was
responsible for hundreds of
stoned kids who dropped out of
college and fell into the habit of
diet ments was more than charity.
The minds, the eyes, the ears of
these detractors failed lamen-
tably to understand that the
Beatles fashioned hymns of hope
of an entire generation angry at
older men who dispatched young
fellows to die in Vietnam,
demoralised by an American
Presidential regime that
promised to end crime in the
streets and ended up by luring
crime into the White House. The
Beatles' compositions were cries
of protest against anonymity in a
crowded world, expressions of a
profound yearning for worldwide
peace, tributes to fearless leaders
in the campaign for equality of
opportunity, prayers to keep ever
green the memories of the Ken-
nedy brothers and Martin Luther
King, mid-century American
John Lennon, one thoughtful
admirer said "carried in all his
anti-establishment bias a kind of
integrity of opposition; he carried
within him an archetype that
nspired a revolution of con-
"If all of us just loved and
cared for one person each; that is
all it takes; love breeds love,"
Yoko Ono Lennon reminded the
millions of her family's friends.
YOKO LENNONs prayer is
consistent with the planting of a
John Lennon Peace Forest" in
Where in all the world is there
i more striking combination of
practical and revered work the
good labor of causing trees to
flourish in a barren land, a labor
of road blazing, water storage,
reclamation? Dedication i-oing
into that effort comprises a
joyous hymn hauntingly close to
a line in the message given the
world by John Lennon's widow:
"Spend well for your children and
loved ones; if there is any left,
give to the one? who are in need.','

THE BOMB outside the syna-
gogue in Rue Copernic, Paris,
last October was widely
suspected to be the work of
FANE, another organization
with which the League is closely
linked. Four people were killed,
and the death toll could have
been much higher had the service
not run behind schedule.
The program placed great em-
phasis on the recreation of an
interview with someone who had
infiltrated the League over a
number of years. The infiltrator's
comments, spoken by an actor,
included an allegation that the
League raised money for the
more underground or extreme
groups which could not open!}
appeal for funds on their own.
"Are you talking about terror-
ist groups," he was asked.
"Yes, terrorist groups."

Apparently, NSRP representa-
tives offerred 10,000 guns "as
their contribution.
Once again, the League is well
linked with the NSRP, whose
leader, J.B. Stoner, of Atlanta,
Ga., spent three days in Britain
as guest of the organization.
Stoner has recently been con-
victed of bombing a black com-
munity church.
ANOTHER guest of the
League has been arrested for
leading a group which bombed a
Vietnamese refugee hostel and an
xhibition devoted to the horrors
of Auschwitz. He is Manfred
Roeder, who fronts DBI (the
German Citizens' Initiative), an
openly Nazi group. The League's
journal showed Roeder ad-
dressing a London meeting.
"Credo" also focused on grow-
ing anti-Semitism in Britain,
fostered by such organizations as
the League, the British Move-
ment and the National Front.
The "Board of Deputies' defense
director, Dr. Jacob Gewirtz, said
on the program: "There have
been two petrol bombs directed
at synagogues, numerous
desecrations of cemeteries, two of
them extremely serious, and pigs'
heads have been left in syna-
gogue forecourts a very
definite increase in the level of
As far as British activities
were concerned, "Credo" termed
the League "an elite umbrella
organization" drawing members
from existing extreme right-wing j
organizations, among them the
various constituent parts of the
National Front and the British
THE PROGRAM noted that
since failing to gain power
through the ballot box, the NF
had been lass covert in its anti-
Semitism for example, it had
established the magazine, "New
Nation," which devoted many of
its pages to derogatory attacks
. on Jews.
Meanwhile, the BM was at-
tracting a youthful following:
"Young people who join can
know little about Nazis, but once
members they are shown how the
'international Jewish conspiracy'
theory can be used to phiin all
the things they oppose."
The Movement concentrates
on literature alleging the Holo-
caust to he a myth and other
virulently anti Semitic prop-
aganda. In the words of a former
senion member: "You were at
least expected to have read Mein .
However, while BM and NF
members have been convicted of
violent offenses, the. "real or-
ganized" activities of British
Fascists were said to be the work
of Column 88, which derives its
name from the eighth letter of the
alphabet, written twice to make
the initials HH "Hail Hitler."
COLUMN 88 works in dose
consort with the League of St.
George, whose meetings were
also revealed by the infiltrator to'
include films made in Germany
during the Hitler period: "People
put their right hand up in the
Nazi salute and cheered when
anyone in the film said anything
against Jews."
