JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Premier Shimon Peres has
spoken out strongly against
an international conference
as the framework for Middle
East peace negotiations and
expresses disbelief in
reports from Washington
that the Reagan Ad-
ministration may be edging
away from its opposition to
such an approach.
Peres said that when he met
with Secretary of State George
Shultz here last month, Shultz
agreed that an international con-
ference would not serve the cause
of peace.
The reports from Washington
were related to last week's
meeting between President
Reagan and King Hussein of Jor-
dan. In prepared remarks to '.he
press afterwards, Hussein said
that Jordan and the Palestinians
are ready to negotiate "within the
context of an international
conference."
REAGAN, answering
reporters' questions, said that
while the U.S. has differences
with Jordan over a conference,
the issue is being discussed with
the Jordanians.
A senior Administration official
who briefed reporters later, said
the U.S. believes an international
conference would be "political
theater," a stage for "rhetoric.
He added, however, that "nothing
is static."
The position of Jordan and the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion, stated in the Feb. 11 agree-
ment between Hussein and PLO
chief Yasir Arafat to negotiate
jointly, is for peace talks to be held
in the context of an international
conference in which the par-
ticipants would be the five perma-
nent members of the United Na-
tions Security Council and all par-
ties to the Middle East conflict.
ISRAEL AND the U.S. have
consistently opposed that ap-
proach and favor instead direct
negotiations between Israel and
its Arab adversaries along the
lines of the 1978 Camp David
negotiations between Israel and
Egypt.
Peres, speaking during a visit to
Acre, warned that an interna-
tional conference would bring the
Soviet Union into the Middle East
peace process. He noted that
Moscow supports the most ex-
treme Arab positions, and Israel
would thus be faced at the
negotiating table with an ex-
tremist rejectionist front.

Government Affairs
Committee Visits
Tallahassee
On Tuesday, May 7, a delega-
tion of representatives of Govern-
ment Affairs Committees of
Jewish Federations throughout
the State of Florida converged
upon the State Capitol for a day at
the Legislature.
Elihu H. Berman, chairman of
the Government Affairs Commit-
tee of the Community Relations
Committee of the Pinellas County
Jewish Federation and a couple of
dozen representatives of govern-
ment affairs committees from
other parts of the state met with
Elaine Bloom, director of the
Florida Association of Jewish
Federations for breakfast in a
meeting room on the 21st floor of
the State Capitol Building in
Tallahassee, after which the
delegates attended sessions of
both the Senate and the House in
action. They were treated, in each
chamber, to an impressive
ceremony memorializing the vic-
tims of the Holocaust.
In each chamber, emotional
tribute was paid to the victims of
the Holocaust, to the survivors,
and to those courageous few, who,
at great risk to themselves, gave
aid and assistance to victims. In
each chamber, every legislator
gave his or her sole attention to
the proceedings, and each
legislative branch solemnly and
unanimously adopted a resolution
memorializing the victims of the
Holocaust. Not only the
legislators, but the spectators in

the gallery of each chamber were
obviously moved by the solemnity
of the occasion.
Following those proceedings,
the Florida Association of Jewish
Federations hosted the legislators
at a luncheon on the 22nd floor of
the State Capitol building. The
turnout was large, and attested to
the good will that the Florida
Association of Jewish Federations
has built up under the leadership
of its Director, Elaine Bloom.
The afternoon proceedings were
informal, with the members of the
delegations taking their own
directions, visiting the legislators
of their choice, attending hear-
ings, etc.
It was an educational ex-
Kerience for delegates and
gislators alike.

By LOYCE GARON
Stanley Newmark, newly-
elected president of the Jewish
Federation of Pinellas County,
says his favorite cause is the
Federation.
"I think it's very important that
my Jewish heritage and its culture
in its entirety continue to flourish,
and the way it's happening is
through Federation," Stan says.
To Stan, "thinking Jewishly" is
a way of life he has not always
known. Born 52 years ago in New
York City of Orthodox parents,
his Jewishness seemed to him to
have been completed after
Hebrew School and his Bar
Mitzvah.
After that, Stan says, "I went
about my business," which, in
time, included earning bachelor of
science and marketing degrees
from New York University. He
went on to work for 13 years with
Pfizer Laboratories in sales and
sales management, 13 years with
Wang Laboratories including 10
years as southeastern sales
manager. For the past one and a
half years, Stan has been with the
Rutenberg Corporation.
Stan and his wife, Enid, have
two daughters; Lisa, 19, and
Stefani, 16, both of whom, Stan
says, "have a broader religious
background" than he did. It
wasn't until after his wife became
involved in ORT, shortly after the
family relocated here, that Stan
"began to feel the importance of
helping Jewish causes."
"I realized that there were peo-
ple who needed training and help,
and there was no other way ex-
cept through Jews." Before, Stan
says, he "did not understand the
needs of other Jews. Understan-
ding is 'the key.' "
Stan freely admits that he is in-
volved "because it makes me feel
good. Knowing that I'm able to
help Jews. Giving money is fine,
but you also need to give of
yourself you need all the
ingredients."
Putting all the ingredients
together is a goal of the Federa-
tion, Stan says, which supports
the Jewish Day School, the Gulf
Coast Jewish Family Service, the
Jewish Community Center of
Pinellas County and the new Kent
Jewish Community Center, of
which Stan is immediate past
president.
The Federation can't do it
alone, Stan says. "We need
solicitors" and "there is no limit
to the number of people who can
be on committees and help make
decisions," he says. Stan says he
sees the same people at most of
the meetings he attends, and he
would welcome new participants.
"I would like to see the Jews in
this county feel and understand
how important each and every one
of them is. The key is understan-
ding. We don't have enough
volunteers. One of the biggest
problems in this community is
volunteers.
"We need people and their in-
volvement. Our level of giving
must be higher because others
cannot give," he says.
The book, While Six Million
Died, by Arthur D. Morse, im-
pressed Stan with its message:
"The world, including most Jews,
looked away while the 6 million
were dying, and they were dying
because they were Jews." Stan
and Enid were members of the
1982 Pinellas mission to Israel.
On another mission for Federa-
tion, Stan visited Poland and saw
Auschwitz and Birkenau where
many of the country's 3 million
Jews died 40 years ago. Today on-
ly 5,000 Jews remain in Poland.
Many of them rushed to kiss the
people on the mission because
they "know that they are literally
supported" by such groups, Stan
says.
It is important for Jews to know
Stanley Newmark
these facts, Stan continues,
because "It could happen again."
And that is why "it is so impor-
tant that Israel remain
economically, politically and even
militarily free," Stan says,
"because I'm a firm believer that
Israel is one of the keys to Jewish
survival throughout the world."
Federation helps in this cause
by allocating 50 percent of its
funds to Israel, Stan explains. In
turn, he believes, that the United
States lends financial support to
Israel "because they see tUiJ
Jewish community **
think Jewishly'in that J'j
ud to be Jews," Stan says
Bringing the point down,,

Stan's commitment to p9

board for five years.

Gulf Coast Helps Widow and Widowers
Do you recognize this person?
fcer husband died four years ago
nd she has yet to smile or feel
at she is really living again. She
es through the activities of daily
|fe, but with no zest. Food offers
tie pleasure and sleeping is
bmetimes a problem.
| Widowhood can be a very pain-
I time of life. When two people
ave spent most of their lives
ether sharing, giving and lov-
g, it becomes hard to cope when
iro becomes one. The adjustment
in be a difficult process.
I That is where Gulf Coast Jewish
nily Service, (GCJFS) can be of
kip. We have clinical social
prkers on staff, who understand
psychological trauma of loss
and can help people begin to live
their lives more fully again. Peo-
ple who have had trouble accep-
ting being widowed have turned
to GCJFS for counseling and have
been very pleased with the
results.
"One of the rewards of being a
social worker is to help people feel
good about their lives again," says
Iris Lee, director of Counseling at
GCJFS. "I know how bad a per-
son can feel when left without
their spouse," says Mrs. Lee. It's
hard to believe that life will ever
have real pleasure again."
Life, of course, goes on,
regardless of whether a person
wants it to or not. The question to
ask, however, is how does life go

NEW YORK The
American Jewish Congress
says rumors that Israel has
been selling weapons to
South Africa are false and
not supported by data from
experts monitoring interna-
tional arms traffic.
The Jewish organization was
especially critical of an article in
the Mar. 22 Washington Post in
which writer Daniel Southerland
stated that South Africa has
received as much as 35 percent of
Israel's arms exports in recent
years.
In a letter published in the
Washington Post on May 22,
AJCongress associate executive
director Phil Baum and policy
analyst Raphael Danziger said the
newspaper's assertion was "all
wrong" and that it was based on a
misreading of statistics contained
in a forthcoming book on Israel's
arms exports.
INASMUCH AS Israel had
agreed to observe the November,
1977 UN arms embargo against
South Africa, the newspaper's
report that Israel was exporting
arms was a "devastating charge,"
the AJCongress officials wrote in
their letter.
The charge became even more
serious, they suggested, because
Sen. William Proxmire used it as
the basis for a declaration in a
Senate speech in April that "this
(annual) sale by Israel of $350
million in weapons to South Africa
raised some very serious ques-
tions about Israel."
The Baum-Danziger letter said
the erroneous Washington Post
charge was drawn from a passage
in a forthcoming book by Ahron
Klieman which cites the 35 per-
cent figure as an average for the
1970's before the UN embargo
- not tiie 1980's. Klieman, in
turn, obtained his figure from the
Stockholm International Peace
Research Institute's 1980 year-
book, where the fact that the
figure was a pre-embargo
reference is made clear, the
AJCongress officials stated.
THEY ADDED in their letter
that there is no evidence of any
Israeli arms supplies after
November, 1977, except for the
delivery of three patrol boats and
ship-to-ship missiles whose actual
purchase was made before the em-
bargo went into effect an ar-
rangement that was not a viola-
tion of the embargo.
The letter noted that Israel's
adherence to the embargo provi-
sions was confirmed on
September 7, 1979 by Andrew
Young, then U.S. Ambassador to
the United Nations, who certified
that Israel has been observing the
1977 arms embargo against South
Africa.
The AJCongress officials also
said that Sen. Proxmire's figure
of $350 million as the amount of
Israel's annual arms sales to
South Africa is "especially outlan-
dish" since South Africa's entire
annual arms imports for the two-
year period 1981-83 did not ex-
ceed $35 million, according to the
Stockholm Institute's 1984
yearbook.
BAUM AND Danziger called
the "false rumors" about Israeli
arms sales to South Africa
"deplorable" and pointed out that
in addition to the Stockholm In-
stitute's data, the 1984-85 year-
book of the International Institute
for Strategic Studies, a recogniz-
ed authority on international ar-
maments, shows that nearly the
entire South African arsenal is of
French, Italian or British origin.
They said that "no matter what
the facts, Israel obviously remains
the whipping boy of choice."

Haifa Theater Does Well
On Germany Tour
BONN (JTA) The Haifa Theater, which has been
touring West Germany for the past two weeks, had a
distinguished visitor for its performance before a capacity
house in Duesseldorf. President Richard von Weizsaecker
of the Federal Republic joined the large audience in ap-
plauding the actors and playright after a three-hour perfor-
mance of "The Ghetto.'*
HE ATTENDED the production at the invitation of
Noam Semel, managing director of the Haifa Theater. His
appearance was seen as a gesture of solidarity with Israel
as represented by its troupe of actors. Last week, they
presented an Arabic-Hebrew version of Samuel Beckett's
"Waiting for Godot" at a Bonn Theater.
There were strong allusions to the Arab-Israeli conflict
in the production which was acclaimed for its artistic merit.

The
Holocaust
We must not forget that crystal naicht
When glass was being shattered
When the streets they loved to stroll
With their blood was spattered.
They were driven from their homes
Were shamed and were derided
Their belongings confiscated
The spoils then divided.
That they fought so valiantly
In their country's war
Was now idle prattle
T'was their duty years before.
Honors worn so proudly
From their breasts were rent
And with yellow stars replaced
They, from their homeland sent.
They were victims of allegiance
To their homeland, to their nation
So were completely unprepared
For their extermination.
They were entrapped in synagogues
That were set on fire
And the Nazis held their posts
To watch, the Jews expire.
They were huddled into boxcars
Father, mother, son and daughter,
Robbed of every shred of dignity
Then were put to slaughter.
Violins were being played
To camouflage the moaning
Of a peoples' being tortured.
Of a peoples' groaning.
The concentration camps were filled
There thousands were cremated
And while the gray smoke filled the shies
Their tormentors were elated.
The fit were sent to labor camps
Again the Jews were slaves
Aristocrats in prison garb
Reduced to digging graves.
They were starved and tortured
While the brutal Nazi beasts
Resplendently attired
Indulged in lavish feasts.
The finest minds in Europe
By them were dissipated
Yet they wallowed in their glory
For the chaos they created.
Thousands faced the firing squads
Were murdered without reason
These were thefuhrer's orders
The alibi was treason.
They were accused of being communists
Enemies of state
This made their murders legal
Their own makers of their fate.
They were shot, gassed and cremated
Were being worked to death
Yet they prayed to God, their Father
TUl they took their final breath.
The children had to be destroyed
To preclude any trace
Of the crimes that were committed
By the self styled master race.
Such brutalities unthinkable
In secret executed
Were in mad men's minds conceived
This can not be disputed.
These monsters were no heroes
This was only a facade.
They quaked before their fuhrer
Yet defied the laws of God.
Six million precious lives were lost
The death camps took their toll
Yet the world looked on but did not see
Where was the heart, the soul.

Jewish Studies and Archeology Centei
At USF Sponsor Dig
The Jewish Studies Center and
The Living Center for Biblical and
Archeological Studies at the
University of South Florida are
sponsoring a dig in Israel this
summer. The excavation under
the direction of James F. Strange,
Dean of the College of Arts and
Letters at USF, will be located at
ancient Sepphoris in the Lower
Galilee where the group has been
working for the past three years.
Sepphoris is a major Roman and
Byzantine site about four miles
from modern Nazareth. Its main
importance for Judaism is the fact
that Rabbi Judah the Prince lived
the last 17 years of his life there,
during which time he colated the
Mishnah.
The excavation team will in-
clude staff members and
volunteers from universities and
colleges throughout the U.S. This
year the project has attracted
quite a few Suncoast archeology
buffs. Travelling with the group
this year will be Janet Bragin,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Steve
Bragin, who will be digging for
the first time, and Joan Keller, a
veteran of 7 seasons in the field.
Full participation in the project
includes daily excavation at the
site, seminars on the archeological
history of ancient Palestine, and
archeological methods, two side
trips to other sites, and the oppor-
tunity to learn some of the most
highly technical skills used in
modern field archeology. The only
requirements for participation is a
high school education, good health
and a willingness to work hard.
The total cost for the four weeks
is $1895. This includes round trip
fare from Atlanta, leaving July 20
and returning August 18, room
and board in the Galilee Hotel in
Nazareth, ground transportation
and sightseeing costs, and six
semester hours of credit (or audit)
through USF's Weekend College.
Joan Keller, the project's ad-
ministrative assistant, stated that
there are a few places left with the
rpoject, and especially for a nurse
or doctor. She also mentioned a
unique problem facing the group
this year. Because of the need to
purchase high tech equipment,
scholarship funds for staff person-
nel are lacking. One person
needing assistance is a young Rab-
bi from St. Louis. Susan has dug
in Israel several times and her
skills are highly regarded. Since
she serves a small new congress
tion, they cannot afford to assL. '
her. If anyone would like to hefe
"send a Rabbi to Israel." wto
would also be a real boon to the
project, please call Joan 2
531-2923 or Dr. Strange at USF
974-2804. Susan's travel ami
housing expenses are $15oo for
the four weeks.
Anyone interested in further in-
formation about joining the grow
may contact Joan Keller before
June 18, at which time an orienta-
tion meeting will be held at the
university at 7:30 p.m. at Cor,
Hall. ^
Life Saving Course To Be
Held At Funeral Chapel
The American Heart Associa-
tion, in cooperation with Beth
David, Jewish Funeral Directors,
will hold a "Heart Saver Course,"
Tuesday July 9 at 6 p.m. This is a
combined course and will instruct
students how to administer CPR
in a one-man rescue and how to
save a choking person.
"Many people who have taken a
CPR and choking maneuver
course have successfully used
their life-saving techniques in
unexpected life-threatening situa-
tions," says Jonathan A. Fuss,
owner of Beth David Chapel. "So,
we've decided to donate our
chapel to help more people learn
how to help more people."
Mr. Fuss has been in the funeral
business for 12 years. He is the
former manager of a national
chapel on the East Coast of
Florida. He recently mover to St.
Petersburg and purchased Beth
David, Jewish Funeral Directors.
Since then, Mr. Fuss has become
very active in the community.
This life-saving course is being
offered on a first come first serve
basis. Beth David, Jewish Funeral
Directors is located at 4100 16
Street North in St. Petersburg.
For reservations call 521-2444.

Shultz Says: U.S. Prepared to 'Move Now' for Talks

Secretary Shultz
earlier that such a conference
could provide a framework that

sense of urgency that the Ad-
ministration had been avoiding
since Hussein signed an agree-
ment with the PLO in February
and began urging a renewed U.S.
role in the peace process.
"TIME IS essential," Shultz
said, quoting an earlier statement
by the Jordanian King. He said
that Hussein's account of the new
PLO position "is a very signifi-
cant one," since the latter has
been in close consultation with the
organization.
One area in which some head-
way had been made, Shultz said,
was on the composition of a pro-
posed joint Jordanian-Palestinian
delegation that would meet with

Shultz repeated the Administra-

object to meeting with members

as long as they were not also
members of the PLO. Israel
regards the PNC as a PLO body,

Letter to Reagan
Urges Egypt to Honor Commitments
WASHINGTON On the eve
of Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak's visit to the United
States, Senators Jesse Helms (R.,
N.C.), Steve Symms (R., Idaho)
and Rep. Duncan Hunter (R., San
Diego) and 16 of their colleagues
sent a letter to President Reagan
to ask that the White House press
the Egyptian government to
honor its commitments to nor-
malize relations with Israel.
The letter, delivered to the
White House Mar. 7, also urged
that the United States assure
Israeli control over strategic
areas vital to its security
specifically Judea, Samaria, Gaza
and Golan.
The letter was the result of
numerous meetings with con-
gressmen by Peter Goldman,
director of Americans For A Safe
Israel. The group has been con-
ducting meetings in Washington
the past few months.
"THIS IS ONE of the most
significant statements on the Mid-
dle East to emerge from Con-
gress," said Goldman. "Their (the
congressmen) statement breaks a
lot of new ground in that it is a
beginning in the repudiation of
the conventional wisdom and faul-
ty policy that Israel should give up
territory in exchange for an unen-
Sen. Jesse Helms
forceable paper peace treaty. It
asks the President to support
Israel, support Israel's retention
of key strategic areas necessary
for defense, including all of Judea,
Samaria, Gaza and "GoTah',"
"The entire thrust of the letter
is in opposition to State Depart-
ment thinking on the Middle East,
and of course, at odds with the
Reagan Plan for the Middle
East," Goldman said.
"The signers understand the
concept of peace through
strength, the need to support
democracies, Israel's value and
the danger of the Soviet threat to
the Middle East and the world."
HELMS AND Symms were
joined in the letter by Sens.
THE TOAST
OF THE
TOWN"
(OSJ 8W-4154
Alfonse D'Amato, Paula
Hawkins, John East, Chic Hecht
and Mack Mattingly.
The similar House letter, coor-
dinated by Hunter, was also sign-
ed by Jim Bates, Jack Fields, Bob
McEwen, Mickey Edwards.
Gerald Solomon, Robert Dornan,
William Dannemeyer, Robert
Walker, David Monson, Jim
Couter and Mac Sweeney.
"Israel has already given up 90
percent of the territories taken in
1967. To give up the minimum
geostrategic areas of defense
would be a serious weakness
destabilizing the region," the
lawmakers wrote. "We believe it
is an illusion to imagine that the
surrender of defensible borders in
exchange for an unenforceable
treaty will lead to peace."
The solons also noted that under
current administration proposals,
portions of Israel could be narrow-
ed down to a width of nine miles.
"Israel cannot continue to be a
strategic or even a viable nation
if it is made strategically
vulnerable. We cannot support
any plan which envisions Israel
only nine miles wide in the
center."
THEY ALSO NOTED that
Israel has fortified the strategic
depth of the entire Sinai, the
strategic heights of the mountain-
top warning system, oil fields, air-
bases, towns and villages at a cost
of $20 billion.
Egypt, on the other hand, has
not normalized diplomatic and
trade relations with Israel, pro-
mised in the Camp David treaty.
More than 50 trade and cultural
agreements remain unfulfilled.
Besides his involvement in the
signing and writing of the letter,
Symms recently sponsored a
Senate showing of AFSI's highly
acclaimed film, "NBC in Lebanon:
A Study in Media Misrepresenta-
tion," for fellow lawmakers and
their aides.

5 Jewish Soldiers Wounded
TEL AVIV (JTA) Five
Israeli soldiers were wounded in
two incidents in the south
Lebanon security zone, just north
of the Israel border. Two ter-
rorists were Idled, bringing to 13
the number of terroriste slain by
Israeli forces over the weekend.
Military sources said the up-
surge in attacks on the Israel
Defense Force and its allied South
Lebanon Army (SLA) came from
rival guerrilla and terrorist
groups eager to outdo each other.
The sources warned that the at-
tacks might escalate as the Israeli
presence in south Lebanon nears
an end. The IDF is expected to be
completely out of Lebanese ter-
ritory early this month.
In incidents, four soldiers were
wounded when a roadside ex-
plosive detonated as their patrol
was passing near Majdel Selim
village, about eight kilometers in-
side Lebanon opposite the Israeli
border town of Manera. An 1W
unit spotted two terrorists m I
the Akaya bridge over the Litai I
River further to the north and j
pursued them to Shakra village
where the terrorists opened fire
One Israeli soldier was wounded
before both terrorists were Idled, j
A Katyusha rocket was fired
an IDF position in the security
zone without causing casualtiesor|
damage.

aliyah.

The cost is $1400 and includes
round trip airfare from New York

members include individuals and
families of all ages who are plann-
ing, in the near future, to settle in

"Them's so little
time now.
I wish
we had
taken
the time
then.
For many people, t hi- first moment they think about a
funeral and its related costs is when they have to. But by
then, they may be neither emotionally nor financially
equipped to deal with the situation.
To eliminate this problem, more and more families
are coming to us today for information on pre-arranged
funerals and prepaid plans. One such monetary plan is
called a funeral trust agreement, by which the money
allocated in trust, which is deposited in an insured
financial institution, still belongs to you and may be
withdrawn at any time.
Feel free to ask us for the facts on funeral planning
prior to need, available now without cost or obligation.
