Israel Beats Iran's Ouster Move

to have Israel suspended

its credentials. Israel's

tials of 126 other countries.

posed the Iranian amendment by
supporting the Danish move.
The 41 votes for the Iranian
proposal came mainly from Arab
and Communist bloc countries
headed by the Soviet Union.
Most of the abstentions were by
Third World countries.
ISRAEL'S Ambassador to the
UN, Binyamin Netanyahu, who
spoke after the vote in what was
his first appearance before the
General Assembly since his
appointment as ambassador
three weeks ago, called Iran's
failure "a resounding and
dramatic defeat."
In his brief remarks, the Israeli
envoy said, "The attempt to deny
Israel her credentials was not
merely one more attack on Israel.
It was an attempt on the very life
of this body."
Netanyahu warned that the
UN "is in danger of becoming a
mere spectator on the sidelines of
serious diplomacy. Most signi-
ficantly, it is losing perhaps it
has already lost its hold on the
imagination of the world's
He charged that the attempt to
suspend Israel from the General
Assembly would destroy the

for the status of
political refugees nevertheless
enter the city and settle there.
The expellees landed at East
Berlin's Schoenefeld Airport and
entered the West by using public
transportation between the two
sections of the divided city. There
is no passport control on the west
side of the Berlin wall and anyone
allowed to leave by the East
Berlin authorities can do so
without being questioned.
NETANYAHU declared," It is
a hopeful sign that the great
majority of members understood
the implications of the Iranian
move and have rejected it. Yet, it
is sad that some have enthu-
siastically espoused the cause
that could well lead to the demise
of the UN and sadder still that
others acquiesce in an attempt
they know is unspeakably
wrong." He concluded, "Those
who enter this house must be
prepared to live by its rules and
above all by the fundamental
principle of universality."
Addressing a press conference
after his appearance at the
General Assembly, Netanyahu
expressed hope that next year,
which is the 40th anniversary of
the UN, "we will not be faced
with the same spectacle" against
He said, in response to a ques-
tion, that contrary to last year,
there were no anti-Semitic at-
tacks during the debate on
Israel's credentials. Jews were
attacked in last year's debate by
Libya and the USSR.
Netanyahu said he could not
reconcile the Soviet vote in favor
of the Iranian motion with
Moscow's recent call for an in-
ternational peace conference on
the Middle East.

Call for Unity
Black-Jewish Front Urged in Philly
(JTA) A call for the res-
toration of a united Black-
Jewish action front to work
together for improved mi-
nority conditions was made
here Oct. 16 at special cere-
monies at Independence
Hall marking "A Day of
Social Concern" sponsored
by the Social Action Com-
mittee of the Rabbinical
Assembly. The Assembly
represents 1,200 Conserva-
tive rabbis internationally
and claims to represent 1.5
million Conservative Jews
in this country.
The call said that despite their
differences, Jews and Blacks
must restore the coalition of the
1960's and work together in such
areas as education and job oppor-
tunities, urban renewal and the
restoration of the ecological
health of the nation's environ-
"WE IN the Jewish commu-
nity are repelled by racial and
religious bigotry of any kind and
are frightened at a spectre of anti-
Semitism, particularly that
echoed in the current political
campaign," asserted Rabbi Alex-
ander Shapiro, president of the
Rabbinical Assembly. "We must
not permit the statements of
either a Jesse Jackson or a Rev.
(Louis) Farrakhan to prevent an
alliance of Blacks and Jews
working together for the social
improvement of all minorities in
A similar declaration was made
by Marshall Wolke, president of
the United Synagogue of
America, representing Conserva-
tive Judaism's 850 synagogues.
He said, "We reaffirm the
historic Jewish commitment to
civil rights, which is underscored
by the positive contact existing
between the Black and Jewish
communities, while deploring the
demagogic titterings of Black
extremists and the resultant
distortion of Black-Jewish rela-

Mayor Wilson Goode and Rabbi
Max Housen, president of the
Philadelphia Board of Rabbis,
also participated in the program.
In addition to Black-Jewish rela-
tions, the Conservative Jewish
leaders convened at Temple Beth

and ecological problems.

In urging renewed Black-

Dawn of A Relationship:
My First Mission To Israel
Executive Director TOP
The sweet smell of a Jerusalem
morning still fills my senses. It
has been a week since I returned
from Israel, yet somehow I feel as
if my mind has rtever left the
majesty of the Golan Heights. I
still see crystal clear blue and
olive eyes set against the deeply
rich, tan color of the Yemenite
children I met at Kiryat Ekron, a
Project Renewal site. I remember
the fear, wonder and anticipation
in the coal black stare of newly
arrived Ethiopian Jews, who
glanced furtively at me from their
temporary home at an Israeli ab-
sorption center. The sun-
hardened expressions on 19 and
20 year old Israeli soldiers
camped close to the Lebanon
border told me they were much
older than their chronological
age. I can still feel the solemnity
of the Western Wall and smell
the acrid odor of the Arab
All of these sights, sounds and
impressions continue to bombard
me as I try to deprogram myself
from one of the most intense and
important experiences I have
ever known my first mission to
Israel. A "mission," by pure
definition, is "a body of people
sent to conduct negotiations or
establish relations with a foreign
country." During my mission I
conducted no negotiations, but I
did establish a new relationship
with Israel, and I would like to
try to share the experience of how
the relationship was built.
The structure of UJA mission
is in a word, intense. It is
designed to compress 10 days to
two weeks worth of time into one
week. One is constantly assaulted
with new emotional stimuli,
meeting new people and seeing
and doing things from 6 a.m.
until you finally drop into bed
late at night. Yet it is becuase of
the intensity of this pace and the
torrent of emotions that are con-
stantly in a state of flux that an
affinity for the country can be
built and cemented in such a
short period of time.
My El Al flight no sooner
touched down at Ben Gurion Air-
port in Tel Aviv, than I found
myself walking through the
Dung Gate into the old City of
Jerusalem. I stood in front of the
Western Wall; women to the
right and men to the left. The sun
was beginning to set, and the
Shabbat was creeping slowly
over the Mount of Olives. The
resonant tenor voice of Aryeh
Brown, Chief Cantor of the
Israeli Defense Forces, intoned
the end of another week and
heralded the beginning of my new
relationship. What moved me
was not the religious significance
of the moment, but that I was
there. For the first time I realized
that I was a part of what pre-
ceded me in this country and
forever would be a part of what
came after. My relationship with
Eretz Yisroel had begun.
The next six days were an un-
believable blur and blend of new
and unique experiences for me;
the sum total of which helped me
to begin to understand that what
we as Jews think and do in the
diaspora is very important to
Israel and vice versa. We were
addressed by some of the most
prestigious and powerful men in
the Israeli government: Presi-
dent Chaim Herzog, Prime
Minister Shimon Peres, Defense
Israel is coping, "In Israel the
difficult is getting done now. The
impossible takes a little lonpr.
Although the leadership of the
new unity government may differ
on how to deal with Israels com-
plex problems, they are all
pledged as one to solve the dif-
ficult and tackle the impossible.
As I crisscrossed my Jewish
homeland for six days, I was
struck by the stark contrasts of
the country. On the main high-
way from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem I
saw rocks and scrub desert on
one side of the road and green,
fertile growth on the other. I saw
Bedouin tribesmen herding
camels and goats and living in
the desert as they had done for
thousands of years, while only a
few miles away new cities were
being carved out of stone and
reflective glass.
I witnessed Israeli ingenuity at
work in the Merkava Tank plant.
Who but an Israeli could design a
tank that looks and performs like
a 280-Z, yet is built for surviva-
vances in science and technology
was the exhilarating sense of
history I felt permeating every
rock scattered throughout the
land. I felt a strength and de-
termination as I walked the ruins
of Masada. I could almost see the
thousands of slaves it must have
taken to move the great stones
into place to give life to the archi-
tecture of King Herod. I could
sense the mystery of years gone
by in the narrow cobbled streets
of Safed. As our bus drove from
Jerusalem to the Golan Heights,
from the Dead Sea to Tel Aviv in
all of the 950 miles we travelled
over six days, I could only
wonder whether Abraham,
Moses, Joshua, Rachel or Jesus
walked over some of the same

In sharp contrast to the ad-
tially the same message: "Our
country has a lot of problems,
and everybody has a different
opinion on how to solve them."

tor of Rural Settlements,

FT A Passes House
On Oct. 3 the House of Repre-
sentatives passed HR 6377 by a
[vote of 416 to 6. The legislation
I would authorize the President to
I negotiate and conclude a Free
I Trade Agreement with Israel. On
I Sept 20, the Senate had passed a
I bill, in a slightly different form,
by a vote of 96 to 0. The bill now
[goes to a conference committee
I where differences between the
I two versions will be discussed
and worked out.
Rep. Sam Gibbons of Florida
was one of the chief supporters of
the legislation, which when im-
plemented, will prove beneficial
financially for both the United
States and Israel.
We are asking that individuals,
especially those from Sen. Gib-
bons' district, write him to ex-
press appreciation for his support
on this very important issue.
Please send these letters to: Hon.
Sam Gibbons, 500 E. Zack,
Tampa, Fla. 33601, or Hon. Sam

Stanley Newmark, president of
I the Center, made the announce-
Iment Oct. 1st. Newmark stated,
["Marvin has been deeply in-
Ivolved with the Federation for
[many years serving as general
[campaign chairman, vice pres-
ident, committee chairman and a
[multitude of other positions."
"Marvin has been a leader in
Ithe cause of helping Jews
(throughout the world. He has
[now accepted the challenge of
I raising additional money for the
I Kent Jewish Center," said
I Newmark.
1 have known for a long time
Ithat Pinellas County was in need
of a Jewish Center in North
County. Now I have the oppor-
tunity to be an integral part of
helping to build this much needed
center," said Feldman.
Newmark commented that the
Kent Jewish Center would be a
common meeting ground for
Jews as well as non-Jews. For
young, as well as old. This will be
a center for group activities for
the entire family.
It will also be a home for crea-
tive art, music, drama and other
phases of Jewish cultural life.
The center will also be a place for
physical education, where strong
bodies and minds are developed
in stimulating surroundings.
Further, the center will be a com-
munal address to meet friends
and enjoy leisure time.
The first phase of the building
drive is to complete a parking
area, provide additional bath-
rooms and bring the three build-
ings totaling 4000 square feet,
which were donated to the Kent
Jewish Center by Charles
Rutenberg, up to building code
standards. It is expected that the
cost to bring the buildings up to
this standard will be $40,000.
The community needs more
services for young and old.
Future plans call for the addition
of a 7,000 sq. foot gym, four
racquetball courts, an Olympic
size swimming pool, 15,000-
18,000 square feet of "'recrea-
tional-educational facility," six
tennis courts and several shuffle-
board courts.
"We know that the community
needs the services, we know the
community is with us, and we
know that the community will
support the Kent Jewish Cen-
ter," said Newmark.

Home Care America offices now
opening in key locations through
the U.S. as part of a major ex-
pansion program.
The service offered by the com-
pany is a "little" bit different in
that they operate a nursing
service first and a business
second. Standards for field
service personnel are the very
highest. A full range of care is
provided including pre-discharge
evaluation for hospital patients,
new baby care, home manager
care when mother is away from
home, and 24 hour availability
seven days a week for State-of-
the-Art recuperation at home.
The company believes in
giving back to the community,
and is known for its non-profit
blood pressure screening ser-
vices, health fair participation,
and other things that benefit the
areas served.
In a letter to the editor of the
New York Times, published in
August of this year, Vice Pres-
ident Lowenstein stated that the
soundest, most effective alterna-
tive to institutionalize! ion is
home health care provided by a
reputable, professional home
health agency. These agencies
form the fastest growing service
industry in the U.S. The cost is
roughly one-fourth the cost of a
hospital bed; the patient is at
home (where recuperative powers
have been proven to be faster)
and the family can learn to take
over care without the shock and
trauma that can otherwise result
from a sick person's return from
the hospital.

/// sold candles, the sun would

- Old Yiddish Proverb
Having given the world the
Bible, morality and ethical mono-
theism not to mention Freud,
Marx, Einstein and Jesus it is
perhaps a mite hyperbolic to
suggest that the Jewish People
has finally "made it" thanks to
the soaring prime time popularity
of "Heritage: Civilization and the
Jews," Abba Eban's answer to
"Monday Night Football."
The "numbers" have been
prodigious, particularly for the
Public Broadcasting Service. The
program is being carried on 270
stations throughout North
America. Preliminary estimates
are that some ten percent of the
U.S. population viewed at least
some of the first two segments,
making it the most popular PBS
show of all time. Sic transit. Big
Moreover, reports are that Mr.
Eban is rapidly replacing Carl
Sagan as the intellectual sex
object of American Middlebrows.
Twenty million viewers. Abba
Eban deified by Yuppiedom.
Jewish hearts everywhere must
be glad. Right? Wrong!
Even while PBS was re-
winding the series' second in-
stallment on its tape reel, five
major institutions of American
Orthodoxy issued a joint state-
ment expressing "deep dismay
and concern" over the portrayal
"of our sacred Torah as a man-
authored work incorporating
myth and legend."
The statement further charged
that the description of Judaism
"as a slowly evolving invention
of God-given Halacha as a
changeable system of law consti-
tutes a stab at the very heart of
Judaism ... the uninformed and
untutored public will be tragic-
ally misled."
The co-signers of this indict-
ment are not self-ghettoized
extremists. To the contrary, they
represent the mainstream of
American Orthodoxy, including
the movement's largest rab-
binical and congregational
bodies, its Zionist organization,
and even the National Council of
Young Israel, which is supposed
to exemplify "modern"
One respects the sincerity of
their beliefs. But one can only
stand aghast at their apparent
rejection of modern scholarship,
and their contention that apply-
ing widely-accepted scholarly
methodology to achieve a new
appreciation of Judaism's
uniqueness constitute "a stab at
the very heart of Judaism."
The statement included the
predictable barb hurled at
Reform and Conservative Juda-
ism, "that segment of Jews
whose philosophies undermine
the foundations of Judaism."
We're accustomed to that by
now. What I wonder about is

Perlmutter Warns Of School Prayer
1 800 432 3708
In his monthly column in the
ADL Bulletin, Nathan
Perlmutter, national director of
the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, points out, "The
ironic fact is that school prayer
proposals many times are the
offerings of those who celebrate

keeping government 'off our
The full text of the article,
"School Prayers: A Pandora's
Box?" follows:
Are officially-sanctioned school
prayers a cure for spiritual
hunger, or are they at best a
placebo, at worst, worse? And if
only the prospect of such prayers
is so divisive, can the enactment
of enabling laws really be ex-
pected to be less divisive?
Prescribed prayers in public
schools, whether drafted by
teachers or students, whether
mandatory or voluntary, set
apart believing from non-
believing students in a forum
where children are brought
together simply as students,
regardless of their faith or ab-
sence of faith. To tamper with
that forum, to import into the
schools this nation's diverse
sectarianism, opens a Pandora's
box. Among its contents of
divisiveness is the danger that
whatever the prayer, it will serve
as a social standard an intimi-
dating persuasion for children
to be like their peers, to be like
everyone else' regardless of their
parents' religious practices. And
the ironic fact is that school

the offerings of those who
celebrate 'individualism' and
keeping government off our

freedoms of religious
minorities no less than of atheists
and agnostics foreshadows
uniformity of religious practice to
the majority's practice. That's
too much of a gamble for a free
society, with too high, too
precious a stake.
It remains important that the
rethinking and the reaffirmation
of religious and moral principles
now underway continue
vigorously, and hopefully.
creatively. But it is equally
important, perhaps more im-
portant in view of the dangers,
that we not dilute the principle of
religious liberty free of govern-
mental coercion. For it is our

thodoxy, that has nourished our
Indeed, it is curious fact that
the resonant arguments of those
who advocate school prayer are
themselves testimony to the
vitality of our religious freedoms.
No less instructive, however, is
the proposition that many of us
who argue against state-
sanctioned school prayers do so
not out of slighted regard for
praver but out of prayerful
regard for our religious freedom.

Keep Justices
Ehrlich and Shaw
When the Florida Bar polled its members by secret ballot and asked whether
Justices Raymond Ehrlich and Leander Shaw should remain on the Florida Supreme
Court, nearly 9 out of 10 voted "Yes!"
Editorial writers, columnists and law enforcement officials across the state of
Florida have agreed:
". both Shaw and Ehrlich have brought excellent
backgrounds to the court and considered outstanding jurists.

"We wish you (both) God Speed in your endeavor and
may the citizens of Florida, in their wisdom, vote over-

"Florida citizens are fortunate to have Supreme Court
Justices who regard the Constitution as a vault for safekeep-
ing principles of government, not as a pantry easily opened
to special interests."
Tampa Tribune
October 21. 1984
"We highly recommend that the people vote "yes" to
retain Supreme Court Justices Raymond Ehrlich and
Leander Shaw Jr. They are among the best justices on the
court. Their records have no blemishes. They are fair-minded
justices of even temperament. They have demonstrated
intellectual honesty, independence and integrity on the
bench. We know of no reason either justice should be
rejected for a second term."
St. Petersburg Times
"Should they be retained? We don't think there's any
question about it: The answer is yes.

records of doing just that. Justices Leander Shaw Jr. and
Raymond Ehrlich deserve to remain on the Florida Supreme

Can It Happen Here? A Time For Soul Searching.
For The First Time, In The Depths Of My Soul, I Wonder-
What Does The Democratic Party Really Stand For?
Where is the Democratic Party going in 1984? Has its direction actually changed from liberalism to an undemocratic
ideology? From speaking out against bigotry to remaining silent to gain votes? I cannot forget that less than 50 years ago
in Germany, the people stood silently by while the Nazis smashed synagogues and beat and murdered Jews. The silence
was devastating. It was a silence heard round the world. A silence that allowed a genocide unparalleled in the history
of mankind. I ask myself how can 1 vote for a party that would compromise religious freedom for a few votes?
I see a party embracing a would-be candidate who sounds as if he is a spokesman for The Third World.
I see a party failing to speak out against overt anti-Semitism.
1 see a party more interested in party unity than uniting against what is right and just.
I see a party that has failed to speak out strongly against the Russians' treatment of its Jews and dissidents such as Sakharov.
I see a party unclear about the strengths and future of America.
1 find myself agreeing with what President Reagan and the Republican Party are saying and doing.
I find a Party and a President who speak out against anti-Semitism.
1 find a Party and a President who speak out against the venom of Louis Farrakhan.
I find a Party and a President who speak out to the UN to stop its anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Semitic tirades.
I find a Party and a President who are not naive and gullible about the policies and plans of the Soviet Union.
1 find a Party and a President that Israel says is one of the best administrations they have ever dealt with. One that fully realizes
the importance of Israel as a friend and strategic ally.
I find a Party and President who have consistently come to the aid of our friends and allies around the world.
/ am taking the time and my own money to express all this because I believe this is a time for soul searching. When I close
the curtain of the voting booth I want to be sure I'm not closing it around my future as a Jew, an American and a patriot.
I have examined the issues that are important to me and I know where I'm going.
Because I Believe In Democracy,
I am not raising funds so please
do not send money, just your comments.
This is a personally paid ad to express my personal feeling.
