Community Dinner
The Community Dinner, held
on May 2 at Spoto's Restaurant,
was a big success according to
Marvin Feldman, Dinner Chair-
man. Over 150 persons attended
the dinner which was held on
behalf of the 1984 Combined
Jewish Appeal campaign.
Habbi Ira Youdovin of Temple
Beth El was guest speaker. His
remarks were inspiring and
exciting and very well received
I by those present.
[ The Dinner was the latest
L-vent held on behalf of the 1984

Campaign Chairman, commented
It was very gratifying to see so
many new people from all parts of
the country come together for
such a worthwhile and enjoyable

Soviet Jews Called
'Spies' by Zaire
Joel Shrager introduced guest
hree Russian Jews who have
relatives in Israel were arrested
m Kinshasa, Zaire last week for
allegedly spying for the Soviet
Union. The Israeli Foreign
Ministry has instructed its
embassy in Kinshasa to look into
tne case.
Yediot Achronot identified the
4"* as Leonid Treunanovsky,
*horgim Gnadi Livyatin and
I u Smo,ler. the two latter said
|W be brothers. They had report-
^'y immigrated to Israel some
;ars ago but left and are now
;Tnanent residents of West
k "? For number of years
nev have been operating a busi-
ness in Zaire, trading in gold and
other precious metals, Yediot
Achronot reported.
The newspapers quoted rela-
tives as saying they were
arrested because a former partner
with whom they had quarreled
implicated them in a series of
terrorist attacks in Kinshasa.
The relatives appealed to the
Foreign Ministry and the Israeli
and world media to be help secure
their release.
Lina Truyanovsky, described
as the wife of one of the suspects,
told Yediot Achronot that it was
ridiculous to assume her husband
was a spy for the Soviet Union,
"a country he could hardly wait
to get out of."

Jerry Falwell
We Use Israel As A 'Door-Mat'
(JTA) The Rev. Jerry
Falwell, president of the
Moral Majority, charges
that the United States has
made an international
"door-mat" out of Israel by
the refusal to move the U .S.
Embassy from Tel Aviv to
The U.S. position is "a slap in
the face of one of our true friends
in the world," the Protestant
fundamentalist leader said in
testifying before a joint hearing
of the House Foreign Affairs
Committee's subcommittees on
Europe and the Middle East and
on International Operations.
"We are making them (Israel) a
door-mat for other nations."
"historically very few countries
can point to 4,000 years of
historic evidence of the position
of its capital." He stressed that
"Israel is not asking a favor, it's
exerting a right, the right to be
treated as other nations, the right
to have its capital recognized by
all nations."
The issue is moral, not poli-
tical, Falwell said. He added that
he would like to see the Reagan
Administration move the
Embassy to Jerusalem by execu-
tive order, but if Congress adopts
the proposed bill requiring the
move, he believes President
Reagan will do the "right thing"
and sign it.
Thomas Dine, executive
director of the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee, denied
reports that AIPAC was not
wholeheartedly behind the bill
introduced by Reps. Tom Lantos
(I)., Call and Benjamin Oilman
(R., N.Y.) in the House and Sens.
Daniel Moynihan (D., N.Y.) and
Arlen Specter (R., Pa.) in the
BUT DINE said he would like
to see an even stronger bill since
the proposed legislation does not
carry a deadline for moving the
Embassy. However, Dine
stressed that now that the
Embassy issue has been raised in
Congress, the U.S. Embassy will
be moved to Jerusalem if not
through the action of this
Congress then by its successors.
Falwell and Dine were among
three Christians and two Jewish
spokespersons who supported the
bill before the two subcom-
mittees. Moving the Embassy
was opposed by David Sadd,
executive director of the National
Association of Arab-Americans,
and the Rev. Charles Kimball,
director of the Middle East and
Europe Office of the National
Council of Churches.
Sadd said no action would have
a more dangerous effect and
harm U.S. national interests than
moving the Embassy. Kimball
said it would hurt U.S. credibility
which is already at a low point in
the Arab world. Both warned
that moving the Embassy to
Jerusalem would be resented in
the entire Islamic world.
RESPONDING to what Sadd
has said, Howard Friedman,
president of the American Jewish
Committee, said the conflict in
the Middle East is the result of
the "refusal of the Arab states to
proceed on the basis of Israel
having legitimacy as a sovereign
state." He said by refusing to
move the Embassy the U.S.
"confirms" the lack of leg-
The bill should be passed as "a
message to the rest of the world
and to Israel's enemies parti-
cularly that there is no substitute
for recogniing legitimacy, no
substitute for negotiating with
Israel as a sovereign state,"
Friedman said.
The Rev. John Pawlikowski, a
member of the executive com-
mittee of the National Christian
Leadership Conference for Israel,
said those who oppose moving
the Embassy encourage the Arab
"illusion" that Israel will disap-
pear. He said that Israel must
have sovereignty over Jerusalem,
although he believed a shared
sovereignty for the Old City
might be required.
Sister Rose Therry, vice pres-
ident of the American-Israel
Friendship League, contrasted
the access to and the care of the
holy sites in Jerusalem under
Israeli rule to the desecrations
and barring of Jews when East
Jerusalem was occupied by
Diary of 17-Year-
Old Warsaw Girl
diary of a 17-year-old girl, de-
scribing her life hidden in a cellar
in Warsaw during the first 113
days of the Nazi occupation of
the Polish capital, has been
donated to the Holocaust
Memorial Museum at Kibbutz
Lohamei Hagetaot in western
Galilee, by the diarist.
Described as the "Polish Anne
Frank Record," the 54-page ac-
count of her life in the cellar,
together with 60 other Jews, was
recently found by the young
writer, now Lily Goldenberg,
during spring cleaning.

TOP Endowment Fund Helps
People to Help Themselves
The highest form of giving
charity (tzedakah) makes it
possible for a person to provide
for himself or herself, thereby
allowing that person to retain the
sense of individual worth and
dignity. Although we may wish
to think that in our local Jewish
community there are none who
are desperately poor, reality
shows that this is not so. In 1983,
180 Jews in Pinellaa County
found it necessary to apply for
financial assistance.
The Jewish Federation of
Pinellaa County, aa the
"umbrella" (overall) Jewish
organization of Pinellaa County,
is the major source of funds for
Jewish community needs. The
Gulf Coast Jewish Family
Service and the Jewish Com-
munity Center are agencies of the
Jewish Federation of Pinellaa
County and are tremendously
valuable resources for supportive
services required by the Jews of
Pinellas County, regardless of
their ability to pay for such
Recently a group of individuals
who are members of the Board of
the Jewish Federation of Pinellas
County was faced with a crisis
situation in that there were no
funds available for continued
short or long-term assistance for
indigent Jews. The Federation's
Koved Fund, used to provide for
immediate emergencies on a one-
time basis, had been completely
exhausted by the demands placed
Joel Breit stein
upon it. As a response to this
immediate problem and in antici-
pation of the long range needs in
this area, an endowment fund
was established with the TOP
Jewish Foundation. This fund
will address a particular
community need that has not
previously been met, namely, to
provide continued short-term
and-or long term assistance to
indigent Jews in Pinellaa County.
This endowment fund will be
held and managed by TOP, the
endowment and planned gifts
development arm of our
Federation. The fund will be
identified as the Endowment
Fund for the (assistance of)
Indigent Jews of Pinellas
County, or "EFIJP." As a
component of our TOP
Endowment Fund, it will earn a
maximum rate of return along
with other endowed gifts. The
annual income from this fund will
be available for distribution
through the Jewish Federation of
Pinellas County. The actual
grants in assistance will be made
through Gulf Coast Jewish
Family Service, based upon
objective criteria established by
its staff.
For this fund to adequately
meet the assistance needed by
indigent Jews of Pinellas County
it is very important that it
continue to expand. Everyone in
our community is, therefore,
urged to support this endowment
fund. A person does not have to
be rich to contribute to it: he-she
just has to be a person who cares.
All contributions to this
endowment fund should be made
out to TOP for the EFIJP
(Endowment Fund Indigent
Jews Pinellas), and mailed to the
Jewish Federation of Pinellas
County, attention of Mr. Joel
Breitstein, Endowment
Consultant to the Pinellas Jewish
Community, 302 South Jupiter,

had given us Rosh Hashonah,

Passover baskets it would
have been sufficient
But, as in the past, they did
give us more than an ample
supply of Passover goodies,
including matzoh, gefilte fish,
horseradish, borscht, etc. How
generous! How thoughtful! And
how sensitive to the needs of the

Book Review-
Cynthia Ozick
Reviewed by Louise Resler
IN The Cannibal Galaxy we
are exposed to a remarkable
assemblage of thoughts and idea
material, which might well be
known as Ozick elan and magic.
In my view, this outstanding
authoress, who has been
acknowledged a menter of the
"literate" for many years, has
now produced her best, deepest,
and most satirical book to date.
Following upon the recent book
Levitation, a collection of very
unusual short stories which ga-
thered few fans for her, she now
woos a new reading audience, and
her following may well be
entranced with the depth of The
Cannibal Galaxy. It is an original
and abosorbing story in an
entirely new guise.
The plot: The Holocaust is ra-
ging in full blast, and a French
child, Joseph Brill is a victim who
is saved by nuns, thrust into a
convent basement, and hidden
for months. Here, he is captiv-
ated by books he finds in this
shelter in his native French
language: Freud, Madaue
Recamier, and others. He reads,
oblivious to time, learns, absorbs.
He is becoming a brilliant young
man. Is Brill short for brilliant?
P (Is it Ozick's play on words?)
2 Eventually he is smuggled to
Z Egypt end imprisoned there.
Later, released, he gets to the
U.S., interested in books,
(learning, education, the whole
Smut). He is attracted to this
Id, and decides to found a
Z He reflects upon his early
j? years, and his studies with Rabbi
Pult. But he lacked any drive to
help himself, and plan for a future
life and career. Rabbi Pult had
urged him to set aside his
continuous musings and move.
Eventually, motivated, Joseph
,r Brill founds a school with what
l he considers a very special
Z approach, The Dual Curriculum
g which he playfully refers to as
containing guidance from his two
Tantes (French for aunt), Tante
Torah and Taste Parisian. The
part containing the influence of
the Parisian Tante deal with
modern psychologists, and Tante
Torah provides Jewish learning.
Once in operation, the school
goes into full swing, and troubles
ensue in this field of pedagogy on
many sides. There is an ongoing
fray with Principal Brill and his
faculty, and The Principal and
the PTA. He becomes so involved
with a group of aggressive
mothers, that he often pits
himself against them knowingly.
In a sense he is showing off. This
part of Cannibal Galaxy is
brilliant satire; Ozick is at her
highest pitch. She is also
emobodying actual satire in her
naming of characters i.e. Brill's
name is in opposition to the word
brilliant (as mentioned), and he is
in awe and admiration of Hester
Lilt, one of the mothers who
holds herself aloof. Lilt may be
short for Lilth. Hester is
academia personified in some of
her writings. She claims that her
style is linguistic logic, which in
plainer language means that she
is writing fiction.
Indeed, Joseph Brill is seduced
intellectually by Hester Lilt,
who, in her fictions throws out
some deep concepts: i.e. the
course of perpetuity and its
curse, etc. At this point the
authoress introduces Beulah,
Hester's daughter who has been a
student in this school for eight
years, and has never
distinguished herself in any way.
She has been rated dull by her
teachers, and although Brill
wanted (at first) to believe that
some of her mother's depth lurks
hidden in the child, ultimately, he
thinks that perhaps they are
right. He decides to discuss this
with Hester, no matter how
delicate a topic it is. He braves
her condecension, although she
remains adamant in insisting
that Beulah is really very excep-
tional. The Cannibal Galaxy is a
bit too vague in this episode, and
could have been curtailed by the
authoress if she had centered
more on Joseph Brill. Hester Lilt
is so well described that in a
forum she participated in,
attended by Brill, she comes
across as eccentric and Brill has
to satisfy himself with the hope
that he has achieved his aim. No
primary school is really equipped
to recognize genius always, at
such a young age.
Brill decides to change his life-
style. He marries a young clerk-
typist whom he hires, Iris (or
Daisy) Garson who has a child
from a former marriage. His
courting becomes a main topic for
gossip among the mothers, and
shocks everyone. As the saying
goes, and so they were married,
but they don't live happily ever
after. They include Daisy's son
on their honeymoon to his native
Paris. They have a reunion with
Brill's three sisters, Anne,
Bertha, and Claire referred to as
A, B and C, who are jubilant with
their brother's new position as
head of a small family. (A, B, and
C, a further attempt at satire?)
The remainder of the book is
devoted to Brill's middle years
and eventually senility. It is
flashback in part, and would have
been enhanced if Cynthia Ozick
had developed certain other parts
of the story in more detail: i.e. his
relationship with his own son, the
future of Beulah Lilt (which one,
Brill or her mother was correct in
the calculations of her ability in
adulthood?) or, Brill's last years,
and his reflections on his ideals.
As for the title The Cannibal
Galaxy: Joseph Brill is a
survivor of the Holocaust.
Cannibal is referring to Europe,
and galaxy to astronomy.
Europe, here is the cannibal
that destroyed the Jews. It is a
rather deep conception, but that
is typical of Cynthia Ozick who is
very much the erudite, and im-
mensely clever. Many survivors
of the Holocaust have been very
intent on success and very
motivated. They have gone to
great lengths to achieve, and this
factor applies to Brill who
despairs of the mediocrity that
surrounds him. He wanted, in his
school to be very productive in
raising the levels of education,
but is self-doubting aa to his
success even though he consid-
ered himself a superior being.
The Cannibal Galaxy is an
exceptional short novel contain-
ing many symbolisms, antitheses
and contrasts. It is not easy
reading, but rewarding when
thoroughly digested. The reader
is bound to imbibe interesting,
unusual similes and concepts and
be somewhat enriched. It is cer-
tainly Cynthia Ozick's most
penetrating and deepest full
length book to date.

Rallies in W. Germany Urge
Russians to Free Aging Hess
BONN (JTA) Dozens of rallies were held
throughout West Germany over the Easter holiday-
urging the release of Rudolph Hess, Hitler's former
deputy, who marked his 90th birthday last Thursday in
Spandau prison where he is the last surviving war
criminal inmate.
Hess is serving a life sentence. Many of the rallies in
his favor had a politic*} character. The participants called
for an end to portraying Germany as the country
responsible for World War II. While right-wing ex-
tremists are very much in evidence in the national
campaign to free Hess, many Germans in no way linked to
the Nazi ideology have participated.
The federal government has issued several appeals
recently for the release of Hess. The three Allied powers
U.S., Britain and France would agree to release him
on humanitarian grounds, but the Soviet Union refuses to
go along.

AJComm. Meet Hears Things That Needed Saying
The American Jewish Committee's 78th
annual meeting in New York last weekend
was an exciting place to be.
For one thing, the organization's
reelected president, Howard Friedman,
said in an address a number of things about
the candidacy of the Rev. Jesse Jackson
that have needed saying for a long time.
Mainly, in our view, Friedman pulled no
punches in his assertion about Jackson's
"rainbow coalition" that it was in fact more
a movement of black separatism than of an
attempt to form a new union of Americans
searching to fulfill their basic human needs.
And addressing the Louis Farrakhan
issue, Friedman frankly charged that this
aspect of the Jackson campaign is tinged
with anti-Semitism.
These are things that needed saying
without equivocation, and Mr. Friedman
said them. But this tone of willingness to
meet the issue square-on was also shared
by other speakers at the meeting.
Touching Other Issues
There were magazine editor Letty Cottin
Pogrebin and Dr. Paula Hyman, dean of
the Seminary College of Jewish Studies at
the Jewish Theological Seminary, both of
whom had some frank words about Jewish
women in religious and civil institutions
and the progress they are making (and not
making) in their struggle to achieve full
membership in some segments of the
American Jewish community.
There was Moises Sabbaj, of Guatemala
City, vice president of the Federation of
Central American Jewish Communities,
who warned his United States audience
that Jews live at added risk in his region
because they are such prominent victims in
the event of leftist takeovers.
And there was Dr. Eugene J. Fisher,
executive secretary of the Secretariat for
Catholic-Jewish Relations of the National
Conference of Catholic Bishops who, in his
examination of the Passion Plays in both
Germany and the United States, warned
authors and producers of such plays that it
is "obviously not sufficient" for them to
justify their "stereotyping and misin-
formation" on the basis that "well, it's in
the Bible," because it is not necessarily so.
It all depends, warned Dr. Fisher, on
"how certain passages or scenes from the
four Gospels are selected and what is
communicated through this selectivity." In
effect, taking things out of context can
cause anything to say anything.
Together, these are mere highlights of
what was a seminal A J Commit tee un-
dertaking. Those who attended all of the
sessions must surely have come away with
a sense of personal accomplishment.
Mr. Begin and the JNF
On this occasion of Israel's 36th an-
niversary, former Prime Minister
Menachem Begin has clarified two things.
One is that he will not be running for his
seat in the Knesset in the upcoming July 23
The other, and in a sense more important
thing, is Mr. Begin's message to the Jews
of America reminding them of the urgency
of the Jewish National Fund's tasks in
reclaiming the land of Israel.
When he observes that "the entire free
world can join in celebrating this an-
niversary" because "Israel has emerged as
the stabilizing factor in the volatile Middle
East and the bastion of democracy in the
region," he knows, as former head of state,
whereof he speaks.
More to the point is Mr. Begin's ad-
monition to the American Jewish com-
munity that "we should recall that ours is a
land reclaimed from centuries of
desolation," and "I am mindful of the
important role played by the Jewish
National Fund in helping to turn
barrenness and despair into green pastures
and hope."
We think most American Jews know
from personal experience that what the
former Prime Minister says about the role
of the JNF in Israel's development is
historically true.
But it is a mark of his concern for his
country when he declares that "Where once
there were stones and emptiness, now there
are fertile lands and orchards. Forests dot
the landscape from Dan to Eilat.
Blossoming lands replace the parched
And this, the American Jewish com-
munity must learn to feel with as much
heart and enthusiasm as Mr. Begin himself
musters in his words. With the appropriate
support from its spirited generosity, it will
make the work of the JNF that much easier
to continue.

On A Personal Note
HAIFA I have been queried
many times about my choice of
subjects to write about. Readers
may be reassured that there is no
lack of subjects. I could write a
daily column, 365 days a year,
and never run out of themes in
this fascinating country. Rather
the question is, what guidelines
do I use? How do I determine
whether a specific subject is,
shall we say, "suitable" for
readers overseas.
For one thing, everything I
write is submitted to and clears
through Israel military censor-
ship to make sure that I am not,
even unwittingly, revealing
anything that might be of value
to the enemy.
Beyond that, I subject myself
to personal censorship. In reply
to many questions, let me make it
clear at once that I am not objec-
tive. To the contrary, when it
comes to love of Israel, desire to
help Israel flourish and be strong,
and concern for the quality of life
here, I can not be objective. I am
intensely, perhaps even pas-
sionately partisan.
FOR THAT reason, perhaps, I
am discriminating in my choice of
subjects. I hope that not every-
thing I write sounds Pollyanish. I
am frequently critical, but I am
also aware of the kind of coverage
which Israel has been receiving
on American television, in Time
magazine, The New York Times
and other papers, and I do feel
that it is necessary to a degree to
offset some of the false and mis-
leading reports to which the
overseas public is subjected.
Alas, many of my colleagues
within the country, in both the
printed and the visual media, feel
no need to exercise any restraint.
They believe that as journalists
they are obligated to publish
everything which makes a "good
story." They are subject to no
moral or national responsibility;
to them freedom of the press is
paramount. And the savage
attacks against the Israel
government (most of them
politically inspired) which see the
light in this country are reflected
in the dispatches sent abroad by
foreign correspondents in Israel.
I value freedom of the press,
but democracy sets up certain
criteria as trie price for such
freedom. We are ail called upon to
restrain some of our freedoms.
Israel recently passed a strict law
which restrains the freedom of
people to smoke whenever and
wherever they like. We accept
restrictions as to when and where
we can cross streets, the speed at
which we are permitted to drive,
the degree of body exposure or
sexual activity in which we can
engage in public. In every case
the criterion is the welfare of the
greater public.
IN ISRAEL it appears that
many journalists and even the
state-owned television have gone
wild. That which is negative and
critical of Israel gets the greatest
exposure. As I stated earlier,
much of this is politically in-
spired, perhaps only natural
when the "outs" want to be "in"
and consider it proper to decry
and undermine everything the
party in power is doing, whether
in defense or in economics. And
since there is a dynamics about
this kind of criticism, the
repetition begins to lead to the
creation of a psychological at-
mosphere in which the worst
fears begin to be realized. If one
cries "depression" over and over
again, it contributes to a public
response in which depression is
Ixiund to occur.
The political reaction to the
war in Lebanon is another case. If
e\er Israel was in a better
bargaining position to make the
most rif its presence in Lebanon.
the constant harping criticism by
the opposition, and the ill-limed
si reel demonstrations
strengthened the hand of our
enemies and in effect sabotaged
our government's efforts. As
Minister of Defense Moshe Arens
has pointed out. this was not
Israel's first war. Following the
Six-Day War Israel was engaged
in a long and bloody War of
Attrition along the Suez Canal.
THE ISRAEL army was then
located on battlefields much,
much further from home than
Beirut. Our troops were pinned
down in a Bar Lev Line which
ultimately proved to be valueless.
The death toll rose constantly
but not once in those days did the
t hen opposition do or say any-
thing which might handicap or
cripple the Labor Government in
its conduct of the war. Too much
was at stake. Now in opposition.
Labor has shown no such
restraint, and many of the
country's journalists have lent
themselves to what is in effect a
political campaign waged on the
backs of the military.
1 have many faults to find with
the present government, and I
certainly do not agree with all its
policies. But there are so many
journalists and commentators
engaged in lambasting the
govern men I that my services are
not required in that direction.
Rat her do I seek to cover a more
neglected aspect, showing the
positive, the constructive, the
urusual. the cheerful or even
just tl.e normal side of Israel
today. There is much to tell. I
hope niy readers approve.

Kollek Objects to Pope's
Letter on Status of Jerusalem
- Mayor Teddy Kollek
said here that Pope John
Paul II ignored the com-
plete freedom of worship
available to all faiths in
Jerusalem when he issued
his apostolic letter last
week urging "special in-
status' for Jerusalem.
In remarks during Easter
holiday visits to Greek Orthodox
and Catholic prelates in Jeru-
salem, Kollek maintained that
the Pope neglected to take into
account Israel's constant efforts
to help various Christian
denominations in the city.
THE POPE'S letter, addressed
to Catholics in Israel and to all
people of the Middle East,
repeated the Vatican's long-
standing call for the interna-
tionally recognized status of
Jerusalem "so that one side or
^the other cannot place it under
The Pope also said a Pales-
tinian homeland and security for
Israel were fundamental require-
ments for a lasting Mideast
The letter, althugh it broke no
new ground in terms of Vatican
policy, was not well received in
Israel. A Foreign Ministry
r spokesman told reporters last
"week that "Jerusalem has been
the capital of the Jewish people
throughout history and will
remain Israel's capital forever"
and that there has never been
such complete freedom of
worship aa that presently avail-
able to all faiths under Israeli
But government officials here
noted that the Pope did not call
for the internationalization of
Israel's declared capital, a posi-
tion the Vatican maintained prior
to 1970 but subsequently
INSTEAD, the Pope waa
recommending an "interna-
tionally-guaranteed status
i formula which had ex-
pressed the Holy See's position
for the paat 14 years. There was
no need, therefore, the officials
said, for Israel to react diplom-
atically to the Pontiff's letter.
Kollek, in his conversations
with local churchmen, said it was
"strange" that the Holy Father
had forborne to take note of the
"Rood situation, the Rood will
and readiness to assist" which
existed on the part of the Israeli
Conservative Synagogue Sister-
hoods on issues and action for the
coming year. Billie Rubinoff,
National Chairman of Affiliation
and Retention for Women's
League for Conservative
Judaism, will serve as consultant
and keynote speaker.
The Florida Branch is one of
the 28 Branches, or geographic
regions into which Women's
League is divided. Over 200,000
Women's League members are
enrolled in the 800 Sisterhoods
affiliated with Conservative
Synagogues in North America
and Israel. Topics to be discussed
at the Spring Conference include
Jewish education, American and
world affairs, and family today,
creative programming and syna-
gogue life.
Something unique will happen
at this Conference a Torah
Mantle will be dedicated by
Florida Branch. Under the direc-
tion of Ellen Bernstein. Creative
Handicraft Chairman (Florida
Branch) and a member of
Congregation B'nai Israel, this
Mantle was designed and handi-
crafted by members of Congrega-
tion B'nai Israel Sisterhood.
Gerry Mensh and Ellen Bernstein
designed the cove; Anna Lachter
is responsible for doing all the
needlepoint; Irene Braun did all
the finishing work. At Conference
in Miami, this Torah Mantle will
be formally presented to Pres-
ident Helen Applefield and
Florida Branch of Women's
League will proudly have one of
its own to be used at services
conducted at this Conference and

Egypt Submits Arms Shopping
List to W. German Manufacturers
BONN (JTA) The Egyptian government has
submitted a weapons shopping list to West Germany and
would also like to manufacture German tanks in Egypt
under a licensing agreement, it was reported here.
The official request was made by the Egyptian
Defense Minister, Abu Ghazala at a meeting in Cairo with
Bonn's Deputy Foreign Minister, Juergen Moellemann,
last week. Moellemann told reporters on his return that
the government has not yet decided to approve the arms
sales to Egypt. It is understood, however, that it is giving
favorable consideration to the Egyptian requests.
CAIRO WOULD LIKE to purchase Gepard anti-air-
craft armored vehicles, Roland anti-aircraft systems,
Marder armored troop-carriers and scores of electronic
systems for military use.
They are also seeking license to assemble a new West
German light tank, which they would call "Fahd"
(Leopard)) at a plant near Cairo. The tank is not identical
to West Germany's Leopard I or Leopard II the latter
regarded by military experts as the best tank extant
but would be built in cooperation with the Krauss Maffei
Co. which builds the two Leopards at its Munich plant.
Consul Dorit Shavit
was responsible for a great
majority of the research
involving King Hussein and the
possibility of Jordan's joining
negotiations with Israel. After
serving in this capacity for three
years, Mrs. Shavit was
reassigned as the Chief Aide in
the Information Department of
Israel's Foreign Ministry. Consul
Shavit was posted to Israel's
Consulate in Miami in August
1983. Mrs. Shavit and her
husband Michael have three
children, Amir, Anat and Yaron.
