made up of immigrants from

Graham observed, "yet there

Jews in Tiberias. He witnessed
the excitement of learning felt
by the newcomers, who had
been cut off from Jewish
culture for 2,000 years.
Graham then went on to
compare and contrast Israel
with Florida in particular and
with the United States in
"Both Florida and Israel are
experiencing rapid population

Graham observed.

pressions of Israel during re-
cent visits. Graham's first so-
journ in 1979 to attend the
State funeral of Golda Meir
was "sad, fulfilling and in-
sightful ... I was in awe of the
richness and diversity of the
people," he said.
"What struck me," Graham
added, "was the tremendous
sense of devotion and respect
which Golda elicited in her peo-
ple. There was a permeating
sense of love."
When Graham visited
Golda's gravesite in his 1984
visit, sponsored by the Jewish
Federation of Greater Miami,
he was impressed with the
modest, unadorned memorial,
which he said "was the way
she wanted it. Her resting
place symbolized her values."
Avital Sharansky
Attempts Appeal to Gorbachev
Avital Sharansky, wife of im-
prisoned Soviet Jewish activist
Anatoly Sharansky, tried to
deliver a letter to Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev during his
summit meeting with Presi-
dent Reagan in Geneva this
week, appealing for the
release of her husband.
Mrs. Sharansky, who began
a three-day vigil across from
the Soviet Embassy here to
draw attention to her hus-
band's plight and that of other
Soviet Jews, tried unsuc-
cessfully to present her letter
to the Embassy. She dropped
it through the iron gate after a
voice on the Embassy PA
system rejected her request to
submit it personally.
The letter, addressed to Gor-
bachev said: "The release of
Anatoly Sharansky, Mr.
Secretary General, would
signal a new and human ap-
proach to the problem of the
last remnant of Eastern Euro-
pean Jewry trapped within the
borders of the Soviet Union.
Anything less, Mr. Gorbachev,
would be a betrayal of those
basic human values on which
all civilization is based."
The Embassy vigil was part
of an 11-day campaign that
began with a sit-in in front of
the Soviet Mission to the
United Nations and was to end
at the Reagan-Gorbachev sum-
mit in Geneva this week. Mrs.
Sharansky is one of the
numerous Soviet Jewish ac-
tivists who see the summit as a
ritical opportunity to press
che case of refuseniks and
Prisoners of Conscience.
She had been hoping for a
White House meeting with
Reagan before he left for the

Peres, Shamir Meet
to Defuse Coalition Crisis
Premier Shimon Peres and
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, leader of Likud, met
recently to work out a com-
promise to end a week-long
coalition crisis precipitated by
Ariel Sharon's harsh public at-
tack on Peres and his policies.
The crisis, with the potential
to destroy the fragile Labor-
Likud unity government,
peaked when Peres flatly re-
jected an equivocal apology of-
fered by Sharon and told a
specially convened Cabinet
meeting that he intended to
dismiss the outspoken Likud
hawk who serves as Minister
of Commerce and Industry.
But Peres refrained at the last
minute from handing Sharon a
formal letter of dimissal.
The Women's Division
of the Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County
would like to correct an
oversight in its listing of
committee chairwomen
on the Jewish Women's
Assembly Committee.
Esther Gruber, who has
devoted many hours of
her time to Women's
Division causes, should
have been listed as a co-
chair on the Jewish
Women's Assembly in-
vitation. The Women's
Division sincerely
regrets this accidental
The mood here was one of
relief and optimism as the cliff-
hanger aspects of the situation
faded. Political pundits believe
the moment has passed for
Peres to dismiss Sharon and it
is now a matter of working out
an acceptable formula to allow
both men to retreat from the
brink without losing face.
Which one of them emerges
the winner in the confronta-
tion will probably be a subject
of debate for weeks or moths
to come.
Peres, addressing the Labor
Party Center in Tel Aviv last
week, said two conditions had
to be met to end the crisis. One
is a coalition agreement
recognizing the exclusive
prerogative of the Prime
Minister to dismiss a minister
of any party. As the agree-
ment now stands, both Peres
and Shamir, who is scheduled
to take over the office of Prime
Minister next summer, waived
the right to dismiss a minister
of the other's party.
The second condition
demanded by Peres is a public
retraction by Sharon of six
specific charges he levelled
against Peres in his speech to
Herut colleagues in Haifa.
These are: that Peres has been
conducting secret negotiations
with Jordan and the Palesti-
nians for the past seven mon-
ths without the Cabinet's
knowledge; that he has agreed
to try to include Syria; and
that he has agreed to an inter-
national conference.
That "the contempt and
cynicism" of the Labor Party
has cost much blood and its
policies, if carried out, will br-
ing even more bloodshed; that
the government is being "led
by tha nnsa" uritheut knowing
where it is going; that Peres
refused to say explicitly that
the Palestine Liberation
Organization will not be in-
cluded in the negotiations and
is trying to avoid such a
That the peace with Egypt is
endangered because of the
"weak policy" pursued by the
government and the Prime
Minister; that Sharon en-
countered "cynicism" when he
demanded "that we should
notify Jordan that there would
be no negotiations until the
PLO headquarters office is
removed from Amman."
Peres told the Labor Party
meeting that when Sharon
made that demand in the Inner
Cabinet no one supported it
and it was dropped. Sharon
must acknowledge that, Peres
said. He stressed that Israel
has not had any negotiations
with Syria on the Golan
Heights or on any other issue.
Peres said he was patient, in-
dicating there was no im-
mediate deadline for Sharon to
comply with his conditions.
Efforts continued, mean-
while, to find a formula to end
the crisis. Interior Minister
Yitzhak Peretz has been in the
forefront and he was joined
recently by two prominent
Laborites, Education Minister
Yitzhak Navon and Energy
Minister Moshe Shahal.
Nevertheless, both Labor
and Likud seemed to be hedg-
ing their bets on a peaceful
resolution. Each party is con-
ducting quiet negotiations
with the small factions in the
Knesset to gain their support,
should the crisis flare anew
and the Labor-Likud coalition
seem in danger of breaking up.

Helen Hoffman, chair of the Community Relations Council

found respect for diversity,"
he said.
However, important dif-
ferences also exist between
the two entities, Graham no-
"Florida and the United
States have made their share
of mistakes over the years, but
we've had the ability to over-
come them. In Israel there can
be no mistakes, especially in
the area of national security.
Weakness would be Israel's
ultimate error," Graham
Graham recalled Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir's
contention that if Israel loses
even one war, it would face an-
nihilation, but he assured the
audience that "despite
everything, Israel wiH survive
because Israel understands
that it has no margin for
"This," Graham continued.
Grossman and Wadler To Chair
Century Village Campaign
Arnold Lampert, general
chairman of the 1986 Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County/United Jewish Ap-
peal/Project Renewal cam-
paign, has announced that
Hank Grossman and Sam
Wadler will co-chair this year's
Century Village campaign.
"Last year's campaign
effort in Century Village was a
resounding success due to the
hard work of all the committed
workers that were recruited,"
said Lampert.
Century village is a large
community of dedicated and
highly-motivated Jewish
citizens. Having raised
$150,000 last year, Grossman
and Wadler have set a
$250,000 goal for this year and
are looking forward to a
$500,000 campaign next year.
"We are developing a steer-
ing committee which will func-
tion to unite the entire village
in an effort to get maximum
contributions and maximum
involvement," said Grossman
and Wadler.
Both co-chairmen nave

Dialogue established by the
Community Relations Council
of the Jewish Federation, and
he serves as a public relations
consultant to the Riverside
Funeral Chapel.
A recipient of the Communi-
ty Service Award from the
Jewish Federation and the

Award, Mr. Grossman sits on
the board of the Jewish Com-
munity Day School and is a
past vice-president of Temple
Beth El.
Sam Wadler, also a board
member of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County and
a member of the Campaign
Cabinet and the governance
committee, served as presi-
dent of Temple Beth El for
five years and as president of
the temple's Men's Club.
As a founding member of the
Central Conservative
Synagogue of the Palm
Beaches, Wadler served as a
member of the synagogue's
board of governors and as the
chairman of its ways and
means committee.
Originally from New York,
Wadler has been very active in
supporting Israel Bonds and is
past president of the
Displaymen's Guild and past
chancellor commander of the
Conqueror Lodge of the
Knights of Pythias.
The first Century Village
campaign event was held Sun-
day, Nov. 17 Approximately
800 concerned citizens viewed

is why the work of the Jewish J
Federation is so vital. I have
seen the results of your work
and your support is an impor-
tant part of what has kept
Israel so strong."
While answering questions
from the audience, Graham
declared, "under no cir-
cumstances should the United
States be supplying arms to
countries which are belligerent
towards or do not recoimize
Graham also firmly i
ported the moving of the
United States embassy from
Tel Aviv to Jerusalem: "Israel
has selected Jerusalem as its
capital. We should respect that
decision," Graham said.
Describing himself as a
"free-trade person," Graham
expressed his approval of the
free trade agreement between
Israel and the United States,'
noting that it will be beneficial
to Florida's economy and will
facilitate entry of American
goods into European markets.
Addressing the relationship
between Israel and Egypt,
Graham said, "Good relations
between Israel and Egypt are
very important because they
are foundations upon which we
can build to encourage other
nations to recognize Israel andw
create peace."
Asked if he felt the Camp
David accords were a proper
framework for future peace in
the Middle East, Graham, who
Barticipated in the Camp
avid signing ceremony in
1979, said, "Yes, Camp David
laid out a process which can be
the basis for establishing
peaceful coalitions."
Earlier the governor naif j
related an anecdote about the
dinner celebration following
the signing of the Camp David
agreements. He had sat down
with a member of the Egyp-
tian parliament, who had
previously fought against
Israel and lost colleagues in
battle. As the table filled with
guests, Yitzhak Rabin,
Sresently Israel's Defense
[inister, joined them. He too
had fought in Egyptian-Israeli
ware, and Graham remembersr
him saying, "I never thought
I'd be in a room with an Egyp-
tian officer, separated only by
a vase of flowers."
In conclusion, Graham said
"Peace isn't earned easily, but
we can all participate in
securing a peace in which each
of us has a responsible role and
a sense of achievement."

"The single greatest threat

ing plenary meeting of the

at the Kennedy Center.

from 800 North American
communities, attended
the four-day Assembly with
the theme, "The coming of age

Levine, West Palm Beach Mayor Carol
Roberts peruses a proclamation urging
^Mikhail Gorbachev to "ease friction bet-
1'iveen our two peoples by issuing emigra-
tion visas to the thousands who have ap-
plied to leave and by permitting the
freedom of expression of Jewish tradition
and religious rites in the USSR." The
mayor signed the proclamation, which will
be received by Grrbachev during his sum-
mit meeting with President Reagan.
The Plight Of Soviet Jewry
Terri Rapaport, chair of the
Soviet Jewry Task Force of
the Jewish Federation's Com-
munity Relations Council,
recently evaluated the status
of Soviet Jewry on the eve of
the Reagan-Gorbachev summit
"Dominated by harassment
and a new wave of arrests and
persecution, this year has been
a bleak one for Soviet Jews,"
said Rapaport. "The most
serious development during a
year marked by curtailed
emigration and stepped-up
anti-Semitism was a
systematic attack on Hebrew
Noting the steady decline in
numbers of exit visas granted
to Soviet Jews, down from
51,320 in 1979 to less than 900
in 1984, Rapaport spoke of
the many Soviet Jews who are
willing to leave their homeland
in search of religious and
political freedom.
"We are speaking of close to
400,000 who have indicated
at they want to leave the
viet Union," she said. "We
are speaking of the tens of
thousands who have been
refused permission to
emigrate and the Jews, ac-
tivists and Hebrew teachers
who have been physically and
emotionally beaten, arrested
and imprisoned solely because
they have expressed a desire
to live freely as Jews."
Rapaport affirmed that
concerned citizens can help.
"One easy way to start is to
^rite a letter to Ambassador
Anatoly Dobrynin at the Em-
bassy of the USSR, 1125 16th
St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
20036. Protest the treatment
of Jews in the Soviet Union; in-
sist that they be allowed to
l^ave; demand that the
.risoners of Conscience be
freed and allowed to
emigrate," she declared.
Rapaport went on to
urge everyone "to join with us
in making your voice heard at
the Community Plea for Soviet
Jewry on Monday, Dec. 9 at
7:30 p.m. at Temple Beth El."
In conclusion, the chair of
the Soviet Jewry Task Force
emphasized the need for in-
dividuals to fight on behalf of
the basic rights of others. "All
of us must re-commit
ourselves to work on behalf of
Soviet Jews," Rapaport
said, "in order to defend their
fundamental human and
religious rights, including the
right to emigrate and be
reunited with their relatives."

other Jews to assure their
continuity the active, creative
affiliation of Jews is,
therefore, a value which we
must foster with ever increas-
ing enthusiasm," Cardin said.
"Affiliation with Jewish
organizational life is a Jewish
value in and of itself."
Cardin, of Baltimore, said
Federations "have to en-
courage Jews to join and par-
ticipate in Jewish community
centers, synagogues, Jewish
communal organizations,
Jewish women's and men's
groups, youth and young
adult organizations, Jewish
educational environments,
both formal and informal."
She stressed this was a major
"responsibility to Jewish con-
tinuity" since "unaffiliated
Jews rarely transmit the value
of continuity to those who
follow them.
In order to demonstrate an
openness to the unaffiliated,
Cardin said those in the
Federation movement must
"pay increasing and serious at-
tention to our constituents."
In addition, "we ought not to
fear diversity, we ought not
fear pluralism," Cardin stress-
ed. "Jewish life was never
monolithic. Diverse opinions,
different points of view and
diverse ideologies must fill a
sense of comfort and security
in our Federations provided, of
course, that these do not com-
pel us, Federations and CJF,
to become instruments of
divisiveness in Jewish life. We
must and we do stand firm and
together on matters that
threaten our security and

tion movement must foster
Jewish continuity as the most
serious dimension of our
Israel-diaspora agenda. Israel
is a 'magical' ingredient in

The Summit: Public Relations vs. Human Right
Mikhail Gorbachev arrived
at the Geneva Summit with the
force of momentum working to
his advantage. In just over a
half a year on the job, this
politician in the American
mold has created a bold, new
image for Soviet leaders. He is
young, where his predecessors
were old; well-educated, where
they were provincial; and
robust, where they were frail.
Gorbachev has shown
himself to be a master of public
relations through polished per-
formances before crowds and
press conferences in Paris and
But amid all the glitter and
the flash, it's time the General
Secretary of the Soviet Com-
munist Party was asked to
move beyond public relations
and really make the break with
some ill-advised policies of his
predecessors. The test of Mr.
Gorbachev's credibility at the
Geneva Summit will come
when the Soviet government is
faced by President Reagan's
criticism of its harsh treat-
ment of minorities, Soviet
Jews in particular.
We know that President
Reagan will convey to Mr. Gor-
bachev his profound concern
about the plight of thousands
of Jews who have asked to be
reunited with their families (in
Israel and here). In 1979, more
than 51,000 were allowed to
emigrate but last year, only
896 could do so; and this year,
only 796, through the end of
September. Mr. Gorbachev
can make an immediate show
of good faith by allowing these
meager numbers to grow, and
allowing the expression of
Jewish cultural and religious
life, and halting the arrests of
Hebrew teachers and Jewish
cultural activists.
While President Reagan will
convey these matters to Mr.
Gorbachev, we know he will
also be able to delve beyond
the statistics and talk about
the individual human lives that
are affected. He can hold Mr.
Gorbachev to his comment
made in Paris a few weeks
ago, that "those Soviet Jews
who are denied permission to
emigrate because they know
'state secrets' (a favorite ex-
cuse of the authorities) have
only to wait five or ten years."
Mr. Reagan can then mention
the names of Prestin and
Abramovich, Goldshtein and
Lerner, who applied in '1971.
Elistratov, Kats, and Osnis of
1972; Bukhman, Malamud and
Simovich, from 1973; and
Gelman, Kun, and Sosna of
1974. These and many many
others have waited more than
ten years for the right to leave
Let Mr. Gorbachev handle
their cases first, and then he
can consider the hundreds
more who have waited
five years!
The Missing Factor
There seems to be an ing-
redient missing in King Hus-
sein's peace initiative. It is ap-
Earent when one compares the
ing's statements on the cur-
rent situation to those of Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat in 1977.
Eight years ago, Sadat
decided to establish peace with
the State of Israel. His in-
itiative began with a series of
secret Egyptian-Israeli
meetings, continued with his
historic journey to Jerusalem
and culminated in the Camp
David Accords and treaty.
Each step of the way the
Egyptian was accompanied by
an Israeli prime minister,
Menachem Begin, who wanted
peace as much as Sadat did.
The Sadat initiative had as
its foundation the Egyptian
President's belief that peace
was better than war.
Repeatedly, Sadat told the
world that Egypt was tired of
war, that too many Egyptians
and Israelis had been kill-
ed in Arab efforts to destroy
Israel. At one point he put it
this way: "In all sincerity I tell
you that we welcome you
(Israel) among us with full

Senate Votes To Ban Use Of Voluntary
UN Contributions For PLO Programs
The Senate by a 90-2 vote
recently prohibited any volun-
tary contributions by the
United States to the United
Nations from being used for
programs for the Palestine
Liberation Organization. The
prohibition was in the form of
an amendment introduced by
Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D.,
N.J.) to the appropriations bill
for the Commerce, Justice and
State Departments.
The PLO "is committed, on
paper and in practice, to the
destruction of one of our
closest allies, Israel,"
Lautenberg told the Senate.
"And terror is its chosen
means of achieving its goals.
Recent events only confirm
this conclusion."
Lautenberg noted that for
the past several years foreign
aid bills have prohibited the
use of U.S. voluntary contribu-
tions to the UN. Since 1980,
the State Department
authorization bill reduces the
U.S. assessed contribution to
the UN budget by the amount
that would be used for projects
that benefit the PLO, about $1
Lautenberg stressed that his
amendment reaffirms this
policy in the appropriation bill
since "the appropriations pro-
cess is the final arbiter of how
this country actually spends its
Sens. Barry Goldwater (R.,
Ariz.) and Charles Mathias (R.,
Md.) voted against the amend-
ment but did not give any
reasons for doing so.

Israel Football Association has ap-
pointed an internal inquiry com-
mittee to investigate the dismal
failure of the national soccer team
in its World Cup qualifying games
against Australia and New
Zealand. The Israeli team was
trounced by Australia in its games
in both Israel and in Australia,
and by New Zealand in its
Auckland match last month.
Price Index Rises
TEL AVIV (JTA) The con-
sumer price index rose by 2.5 per-
cent during the first two weeks of
October, the Central Bureau of
Statistics reports. It was higher
than the 1.5 percent rise during
the last two weeks of September.
If Mr. Gorbachev asks for
Smeliansky, who first applied details about some individuals
to emigrate in 1970; President Reagan will surely
be ready to cite the case of Ida
Nudel, whose sufferings in-
elude four years of exile in
Siberia. She was sentenced to
that term in 1978 for hanging
a banner out her apartment
window, which proclaimed,
"KGB, Give me a visa to
Israel." That courageous step
was prompted by the frustra-
tion of waiting to leave since
1971. Ida Nudel still waits,
now sick in Moldavia.
complained. After 29 years of
threats and attacks, Sadat's
words helped break down what
he called the "psychological
barrier" between Israel and
Egypt. He convinced Israelis
that the man who launched the
Yom Kippur attack was now
ready for reconciliation. A
treaty and the return of the
Sinai to Egypt followed.
It is impossible to nnd a
similar dedication to peace in
King Hussein's recent
statements. Unlike Prime
Minister Shimon Peres, who
told the United Nations in Oc-
tober that he would go
anywhere and put everything
on the table to achieve peace
with Jordan, Hussein refuses
to commit himself to anything.
The rhetoric of peace may be
cheap, but nevertheless Hus-
sein is expending little-of it on
On Nov. 2, the King address-
ed the Jordanian parliament.
It was a major speech and a
long one. There were over a
dozen paragraphs on Jordan's
foreign policy but there were
only passing references to
peace. The King did say that
he was "working to open the
path of peace" as a means of
"regaining usurped Arab te-
rritory, and Arab and Palesti-
nian rights." He also said that
his efforts "are part of the
joint Arab effort." He said
thit he wants a peace con-
ference so that "history will,
under no circumstances,
record that we have succumb-
ed to Israel's
intransigence ."
But he did not say that he ac-
cepted Israel's right to peace
and security though Shimon
Peres, of course, says that he
accepts Jordan's. He did not
give any indication that he
sees an intrinsic value in peace
with Israel. In fact, he dodged
the peace question. The goal of
his speech seemed to be to con-
vince the Arab audience that
he was still dedicated to
achieving "justice" for the
Palestinians. He seemed indif-
ferent as to what his Israeli
listeners would think.
It is not enough. If King
Hussein wants Israelis to con-
sider the concessions they
might make to achieve peace
with Jordan, he will have to
convince them that his goal is a
peace treaty and not a quick
fix. A solution to the Palesti-
nian problem is an admirable
goal but it cannot be Hussein's
only one. If it is if he does
not understand that peace
with his neighbor is its own
reward the current ini-
tiative will go nowhere.
If Mr. Gorbachev declines to
consider the case of one ar-
rested long before he took of-
fice this past March, President
Reagan might bring up the
matter of Leonid Volvovsky, a
43year-old engineer and
Hebrew teacher from Gorky
who was arrested in June. His
crime was "defaming the
Soviet State"; and the,
evidence presented against
him at his trial in October in-
cluded a copy of the book "Ex-
odus." Volvovsky will have to
wait before he can fulfill his
dream embodied in that
"subversive" novel to live in
Israel. On Oct. 24, he was
sentenced to three years in
It's likely the Soviets
already have answers for-
mulated for these questions.
On French television in Oc-
tober, Mr. Gorbachev said, "I
would be glad to hear of Jews
anywhere enjoying such
political and other rights as
they have in our country." His
senior foreign-policy
spokesman told Newsweek
magazine recently that the
Soviets would respond to ques-
tions about the status of Soviet
Jews by talking about Jews in
the United States, and what he
called "facts about the
desecration of synagogues,
anti-Semitism, discrimination
against Jews in clubs."
We ask about the imprisoned
young teachers of the Hebrew
language, the strangling of
Jewish life in the Soviet Union,
and they counter with graffitti
on synagogues and Jews snub-
bed by country clubs in the-.J
United States. Is this the
dialogue the Soviets are will-
ing to entertain on human
American Jews join with all
Americans in prayers for the
success of the Geneva Summit.
Interfaith services, proclama-
tions, and other public events
focus on the need for peace
and human rights everywhere.
We ask the Soviet authorities,
who want to be trusted on
what they say about peace arid ^
the fate of humanity, to show
that they can be trusted by
their treatment of Jews. If
they are ready to move beyond
public relations, they must
grant their people the right to
live as they choose, and where
they choose.

'Miracle At Moreaux'
Depicts Flight Of
Jewish Children From Nazis

When three young Jewish
children attempt to flee the
Nazis in World War II oc-
cupied France they seek
refuge in a Catholic school run
by Sister Gabriel (Loretta
Swit). "Miracle at Moreaux," a
compelling, one-hour special
airs on PBS' Wonderworks,
Sunday, Dec. 1 at 7 p.m.
As Anna, Sabine, Daniel and
their Guide near the border in-
to Spain, the Guide is killed by
Nazi soldiers as he attempts to
steal food from the Catholic
school. Sister Gabriel hides the
three children in the school
and her seven students ex-
press their own fears at har-
boring Jews. Eventually,
however, the Catholic children
come to understand the plight
of the Jewish children and they
risk their lives to help them.
Major Braun (played by
Robert Joy, "Atlantic Cityr'
and "Desperately Seeking
Susan") becomes more
suspicious of Sister Gabriel
after he's given three Spanish
passports found on the dead
Guide. He orders Sergeant
Shlimmer (Ken Pogue) and his
men to keep a constant vigil on
the school. Meanwhile, Sister
Gabriel and her students
devise a way to help Anna,
Sabine and Daniel make their
rendezvous at the border. The
children divert the Nazis and
the three Jewish children flee
down the mountains toward
the border.
"Miracle at Moreaux" is
written by Paul Shapiro and
Jeffrey Cohen, and produced
by WQED/Pittsburgh and
Atlantis Films, Ltd. It is based
on a book, Twenty and Ten by
Clare Huchet Bishop. Jay
Rayvid is executive producer.
Bronfman Urges New York Cardinal
To Press Vatican To Establish
Doplomatic Ties With Israel
NEW YORK (JTA) John Cardinal O'Connor, the spiritual
head of two million Catholics in the Archdiocese of New York,
was urged to press the Vatican toward the establishment of
diplomatic recognition of the State of Israel.
The dramatic appeal, believed to be the first direct public re-
quest to the Cardinal on the issue from a prominent Jewish
leader, was made by Edgar Bronfman, president of the World
Jewish Congress, at a dinner presenting O'Connor with the first
Cardinal Bea Interfaith Award of the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith.
The Cardinal, told reporters later that the decision on
diplomatic recognition of Israel is solely that of the Vatican.
While the Cardinal told reporters he "had no hesitation at all'
about bringing the message to the Pope, he added: "It would be
presumptuous of me to think that I could do more than that, to ex-
press the feelings of the Jewish community that I meet here in
New York.

In China, Israeli delgates at-
tended an International Con-
f-ess on Electro-Magnetic"
ngineering. In the city of
Canton, they were welcomed
at the airport with a banner
saying "Welcome to Israeli
Scientists." After the Con-
gress, the delegates were
allowed to tour China, during
which they met with represen-
tatives of the Chinese Associa-
tion for Sciences and
Technology. They were per-
mitted to speak freely with the
average Chinese in the streets
who revealed a surprising
knowledge of Israel.
Minister Yitzhak Shamir
and prominent" Israeli in-
dustrialists visited Japan to
confer with high-ranking
Japanese officials. Hopefully,
the trip will lead to a signifi-
cant warming of relations bet-
ween the two countries in
business, commerce and
diplomacy. Japan has been
cautious in its relations with
Israel because it is totally
dependent on Arab states for
oil, and they fear an Arab
boycott. Despite Japan's
aloofness from the Israeli
market, Japanese cars are
popular in Israel, and the
Subaru Range, manufactured
by one of Japan's smaller com-
panies, is the best-selling vehi-
cle in Israel.
Jose Brecher has become the

Academic programs at
Israel's Bar-Ilan University
have achieved high in-

ding to a reviewing team from
the N.Y. State Department of
Education. Special commenda-
tion was afforded the Univer-
sity's programs in Natural
Science and Math. The BS
degree program in the Depart-
ment of Life Sciences, the
report noted, "represents
more than twice the normal
course load for a student in the
U.S." Bar-Dan is Israel's only

Holocaust Film To
Be Shown In Poland
French film, "Shoah," widely
criticized in Poland for sug-
gesting that a large section of
polish society condoned the
Nazis' anti-Jewish wartime
policies, will be shown in
Poland, the World Jewish Con-
gress reported.
Polish government
spokesman Jerzy Urban con-
firmed that the close to
10-hour film will be shown,
while reiterating that the
movie is defamatory and is be-
ing used as a pretext to con-
tinue the anti-Polish press
campaign in France.
"The fact that the film will
be shown displays the respect
with which Polish public opi-
nion is treated," Urban said.
"The policy is to present the
facts, to speak frankly on all
subjects, and to permit
everyone to form their own
views," he added.
Meanwhile, in New York,
WJC executive director Elan
Steinberg disclosed that
Edgar Bronfman, WJC presi-
dent, has accepted an invita-
tion to pay a state visit to
Poland in early December.
"Polish Prime Minister
Jaruzelski formally extended
the invitation on behalf of the
government to Mr. Bronfman
during their meeting in New
York on Sept. 25, and Szymon
Szurmiej, director of the
Jewish Theater of Warsaw,
issued an invitation in the
name of the Jewish communi-
ty," Steinberg explained.
The mosaic floor was in near-
perfect condition 1,500 years
after if was laid. The floor was
put on permanent display at
the Israel Museum. When the
Kibbutzniks asked for it back,
the museum refused saying it
was far too important. The
mosaic floor at the kibbutz is
an exact replica, made by the
kibbutzniks themselves over
one-and-a-half years.
Having clamped down hard
on entertainers and broad-
casting personalities doing
outside work and not declaring
all their income, Israel's in-
come tax authorities are now
turning their attention to
chazanim. Officials at all
Synagogues received letters
from tax authorities asking for
details of who leads services
and whether they are paid or
work on a voluntary basis.
The Israeli Finance
Minister, referring to support
for his economic policies, was
quoted as saying "Yes indeed,
everyone is behind me, just as
they claim with knives in
their hands."
The American Society for
Technion-Israel Institute of
Technology reported increased
financial support. This reflects
awareness by the American
Jewish community of the Tech-
nion's critical role in providing
the brainpower and research
fundamental to Israel. Tech-
nion prepares more than 70
percent of all the working
scientists and engineers in
Israel. Continued development
of science-based industries and
export products are the key to
Israel's economic recovery.

Perspectives On Peace Exchanged
By Professor, State Department Official
In separate presentations on
the Middle East peace process,
I Philip Wilcox, State Depart-
merit Director of Israel and
Arab-Israeli Affairs and Dr.
Bernard Schechterman, pro-
fessor of Politics and Public
Affairs at the University of
Miami's Graduate School of In-
ternational Studies, addressed
a luncheon audience at the
Mid-East Leadership
Mr. Wilcox began by asser-
ting that United States rela-
tions with Israel, "have never
been stronger," and he noted
that mutuality, reciprocity and
shared democratic traditions
and values are at the core of
the relationship.
He noted further that Israel
is "a strategic military ally"
and a highly respected trading
Wilcox valued American aid
to Israel at $4.5 billion, in-
cluding $1.5 billion as part of a
joint economic development
Yet Wilcox claimed that the
United States also has a
pragmatic interest in the Arab
world. Overall, he said, "It is
important for strategic, geo-
political reasons, that the Mid-
dle East remain stable."
Citing this year's "improved
atmosphere for the peace
process," Wilcox claimed that
all parties in the conflict are
realizing that confrontation
through warfare has failed and
that "the Arab states are slow-
ly, but inevitably re;cpgfjj?;mg,
that Israel is "t'hefe" to* stay.""
Wilcox added that Shimon
Peres is urgently seeking
peace and understands the
need to settle the Palestinian
issue, arid he claimed that
King Hussein "is serious and
knows that the status quo can-
not be sustained."
Regarding the problematic
issue of Palestinian represen-
tation during peace talks,
Wilcox expressed the belief
that the Palestine Liberation
Organization (PLO) is
moderating, but that it has dis-
qualified itself as a responsible
group in the eyes of Israel.
"Until the PLO can
demonstrate that it is truly
committed to peace and
recognition of Israel," Wilcox
stated, "it deals itself out as a
credible partner in the peace
Wilcox said that the
Administration does not feel
that the Soviet Union deserves
% major role in any interna-
tional forum that may be
established to facilitate Midd-
le-East peace. Conversely, he
said the United States must
stay involved.
"We must help the forces of
compromise and cooperation,"
Wilcox insisted. "The vacuum
will be filled with dangerous
and extreme factions if we
don't, and the threat of war
will increase."
Wilcox reiterated the Ad-
ministration's support for the
"land-for peace" proposal,
which would require Israel to
relinquish certain parcels of
land in return for guarantees
Jf non-belligerence by the
Addressing the issue of ter-
rorism, the State Departemeht
official blamed terrorist acts
on "those who don't want
peace, who are unwilling to
compromise. We must fight
those terrorists; we can't give
them sanctuary," he said.
When the issue of arms sales
to Jordan was raised, Wilcox
repeated the Admistration's
argument that United States
security is also linked to the
security of the moderate Arab
states. He claimed that Jordan
has "legitimate security
needs," especially with regard
to protection from Syria.
Wilcox called the arms sale
proposal a "defensive
package." Claiming that Jor-
dan will get its arms elsewhere
if the United States doesn't
provide them, Wilcox asserted
that, "an arms sale to Jordan
would not represent a threat
to Israeli security and would
not erode Israeli technological
and military superiority."
Wilcox added that the
United States is the only coun-
try which places explicit
restrictions on its arms con-
tracts, and he concluded by
observing that withholding
arms sales as a means of coerc-
ing another country "doesn't
work; it merely causes friction
and estrangement."
Professor Schechterman
began by describing present
prospects for peace as both
"the best and worst," and he
analyzed the situation in terms
of the "actors" involved.
Speaking of the PLO,
Schechterman pointed to the
,"tciple.defeat,", experienced by
the PLO in recent weeks, but
he added that PLO Chairman
Yassir Arafat 'is most ada-
mant when he's down."
"Unfortunately," Schechter-
man continued, "there is no
other Palestinian leader who
has shown any kind of
strength. Where s the Ben
Gurion for Palestinians?" he
Schechterman felt that
"King Hussein is making the
right noises privately as well
as publicly," and that although
Jordan may take advantage of
the PLO's current weakness,
the issue of Palestinian na-
tionalism will have to be con-
fronted by Hussein.
With regard to Syria,
Schechterman stated that the
peace process would stall until
the Golan Heights issue is set-
tled. Schechterman
acknowledged the recent atte-
Dr. Bernard Schechterman Philip Wilcox
mpts at rapprochement bet-
ween Jordan and Syria, but he
reiterated that the Syrians
don't want to be involved in
negotiating the so-called
Palestinian problem.
Schechterman discussed the
Israeli perspective on the
peace process in terms of the
two dominant political parties.
He claimed that Labor Prime
Minister Shimon Peres will
take political risks in the pur-
suit of a settlement because
"he recognizes that peace is
the most saleable commodity
in Israel."
According to Schechterman,
Peres will sanction a Soviet in-
vitation into peace talks, but
only if there is concrete
reciprocation, probably in
terms of Soviet Jewry.
Schechterman said Peres
supports a form of autonomy
for West Bank Palestinians,
but he was quick to differen-
tiate Peres' notion of a West
Bank federation, in which Jor-
dan would be politically domi-
nant, from Arafat's idea of a
confederation which would en-
tail Palestinian self-rule.
Schechterman described the
political situation for Likud as
increasingly tenous. He said
that Likud feels pressure from
Kach and other more extreme-
Only 124 Jews
Came West
"Despite rumors of an accelerated
rate of emigration from the
USSR, only 124 Jews from the
Soviet Union arrived in the West
during October," according to
Jerry Goodman, executive direc-
tor of the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry (NCSJ). The data,
compiled by the NCSJ Research
Bureau, reflects the norm
established in 1984, when 896
Jews left the Soviet Union.

Claiming that Egypt would
support a peace initiative from
the sidelines while avoiding
direct involvement, Schechter-
man turned to United States-
Israel relations and said, "We
have never been closer then
we are right now."
Stating that "there will be
no movement towards peace
without the United States
playing a role," Schechterman
admitted that "we have

the naming of Walt Cluverias

Affordable rental housing is
a difficult problem for people
on low and/or fixed incomes.
Even though property values
in many areas of the county
have not risen significantly
over the last few years, many
rents have.
One of the national housing
subsidy programs that
operates in Palm Beach Coun-
ty is the Section 8 Program.
Designed to help low income
individuals with rent relief, the
program is not well-known to
many members of the Jewish
community, including tenants
and landlords.
If a tenant qualifies for a slot
in the Section 8 Program, he
pays only a certain percentage
of his income towards his rent.
The rest of the rent bill is paid
to the landlord by the federal
government. Landlords in the '
Ned Goldberg
program are restricted by the
amount of rent they can
charge for a unit. Unfortunate-
ly, some landlords have opted
not to participate in a program
that not only helps guarantee
them rent from current
tenants, but also does not
lower the rent that they may
be charging. In order to
qualify as a tenant, an in-
dividual can have no more than
$9,200 a year in income and a
couple can have no more than

"Leaders were able to
mingle with and learn from
their colleagues in other parts
of the state," said Sylvia Her-
man, seminar chairman and a
member of Hadassah's na-

into separate regions, Thelma

"The state of Florida com-
prises a membership of 53,000

UIA Got Over $32 Million in Aid From U.S.
NEW YORK (JTA) The United Israel Appeal receiv-
ed over $32 million in assistance from U.S. government
sources during the 1985 U.S. fiscal year, according to UIA
chairman Irwin Field.
The UIA was voted $27.5 million by Congress for pro-
grams to help refugees from Eastern Europe and other
countries who settle in Israel. Additional amounts were
received from a Presidential Emergency Fund and from
AID, most of it to assist in the movement and initial absorp-
tion of Ethiopian Jews in Israel.
The UIA receives the major portion of its funding from
the UJA annual campaign. It serves as the representative
of the American Jewish community in administering the
programs of the Jewish Agency for Israel.
During its last fiscal year, UIA allocated over $311
million for programs of the Jewish Agency. Field emphasiz-
ed that the UIA depends primarily upon the success of the
UJA's current effort through community Federation cam-
paigns to provide its total allocations for Jewish Agency

Frankfurt Mayor Urges
Director To Halt Performances
Mayor Walter Wallman of
Frankfurt said he could not
ban the performance of an
anti-Semitic play by the late
Rainer Werner Fassbinder but
he urged the director of the
^'o \ ( r n mgn t-s-u-p-p oKted
Frankfurt "Theater, Guenther
Ruehle, not to stage it.
Wallman announced his deci-
sion to a largely Jewish au-
dience attending a service at
Frankfurt's main synagogue
marking the 47th anniversary
of Kristallnacht, the first na-
tionwide pogrom conducted by
the Nazis against Germany's
Jews. The synagogue was
packed with journalists from
Germany and abroad.
The play, titled "Der Muell,
Die Stadt und der Todt (Gar-
bage, the City and Death), has
as its central character a
ruthless real estate speculator
who in the original version is
known as "the rich Jew." The
play has been modified to
eliminate that appellation but
German Jews and non-Jews
Wallman among them con-
sider it anti-Semitic.
It has been the center of a
: fiei-ce. controversy in West
Germany since Ruehle was
forced to cancel the premier on
Oct. 31 when the stage was oc-
cupied by 25 Jewish protestors
who had purchased the tickets.
Wallman said he could not
ban the play, as urged by the
Jewish community, because
such a step could easily be
challenged as a violation of
constitutional guarantees of
freedom of artistic expression.
Hermann Alter, a spokesman
for the Jewish community,
declared that anti-Semitism is
not art and therefore a ban
would not be censorship.
He was supported by Karl
Schneider, Minister of Culture
of the Federal State of Hesse,
who declared, "The feelings of
those who have suffered under
the Nazis is the reality. No
third party can decide what
those people ought to be able
to put up with in the name of
freedom of art."

Of The Jewish Home For The Aged
Of Palm Beach County
THE JOSEPH L. MORSE GERIATRIC CENTER of the Jewish Home for the Aged of Palm
Beach County stands as a milestone in the development of medical and health care services for
the aged in our community.
The dedication and commitment of lay leaders and health care professionals helped realize the
establishment of a superior facility recognized as one of the finest in the State of Florida.
Entrance of The Joseph L. Morse Geriatric Ceter located off
south of 45th Street in West Palm Beach.
Our Residents
Geriatric Center takes full
membership in the "family" of
Jewish communal agencies.
This is expressed through
inter-agency programming,
sharing of resources and the
yearly allocation of funds the
Center receives from the
Federation/United Jewish Ap-
peal campaigns.
Each of the Center's three
residential units is designed to
meet the particular needs of
our residents; from those with
the most mobility to those re-
quiring around-the-clock care.
Over fifty-percent of the
elderly living at the Center are
on Medicaid- the Federal and
State financed program which
pays for the care of individuals
who qualify and cannot pay for
care themselves.
It is anticipated that within
the next fiscal year, the
percentage of residents who
cannot afford to pay for their
care, thus requiring Medicaid
assistance, will rise to sixty
The Morse Geriatric Center
and its Board of Trustees are
especially committed to these
individuals so that ability to
pay is not a criterion for ad-
mission or provision of quality
health care.
As a beneficiary of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, The Morse

Trained therapists work with the residents on
a one-to-one basis.
Quality Of Care
As a long term care facility, The Morse Geriatric Center provides a com-
prehensive range of medical, nursing and social service to the most frail and
aged members of our community.
Under the supervision of a Medical Director, specialists in dentistry,
podiatry, ophthalmology, dermatology and cardiovascular surgery are
available to residents. Physical, speech and occupational therapists work in-
dividually with residents to ensure optimum use of their capabilities.
Registered nurses are involved in the daily plan of each resident to pro-
vide the most effective regimen of treatment and care.
"The Resident Council was
formed to work together
with staff and the Board of
Trustees for the purpose of
making Morse Geriatric
Center one of the leading
geriatric facilities in the
country. The Council has
come to mean something in
addition to that original pur-
pose. It is a privilege the
residents enjoy to par-
ticipate in the very dev-
elopment of the Center on a

Community groups lovingly give of their time and talents to entertain
Morse Geriatric residents.
The Center's Activities Room is one of the busiest areas of the
Center. Ceramics, paintings, crafts, discussion groups, sing-a-
longs, poetry readings and cooking classes comprise many of the
meaningful activities in which residents engage. Movies, games
and field trips offer residents further opportunities for relaxation
and enjoyment.
A library, beauty-barber shop, gift shop and outdoor patio
gardens arejust some of the special amenities built into the struc-
ture and program of the Center.
Activities include speakers from the community sharing
knowledge and experiences.

Center's Volunteer Department, over 290 men and women in the com-
munity have joined The Morse Geriatric Center Family, giving
thousands of hours of service. However, more volunteers are needed
to guarantee that every resident has companionship and the secure
feeling of knowing that our community cares.
"The Center's volunteers are the vital link between the com-
munity and the residents, and we are always in need of
volunteers interested in working one-on-one with residents."
Micki Ross
Director of Volunteers
The Center's volunteers are the link between the community and the residents. The force
numbers nearly 300 but more volunteers are needed.
Our Future
The Board of Trustees of
The Morse Geriatric Center
has approved a Long Range
Plan which calls for the addi-
tion of 160 long term oare
teds, a short term rehabilita-
tion unit, a home health agen-
cy and an adult day care
center. The facilities and pro-
grams are in keeping with the
primary goals and philosophy
of the Center to provide the
highest quality of residential
care as well as viable and
realistic alternatives to the in-
stitutional setting.
The avid support from the
community, which was proudly
demonstrated when the
Center opened in 1983, will be
called upon again.
We hope and trust the com-
munity's response will be as
enthusiastic as in the past, and
that all will welcome the op-
portunity to participate in the
continuing development of The
Morse Geriatric Center.

In 1984 the Center establish-

organization and shares in the
responsibility of meeting the
needs of our aged.
Morse Code
The "Morse Code," the Center's bi-monthly newsletter, has
been the primary vehicle for information on activities and
developments at the Center. It has further served as a means by
which the Center may recognize its contributors and volunteers.

High School In Israel Broadens Horizons
Peggy Rapaport has always
been a responsible, mature and
down-to-earth young lady.
Having known her for five
years, I have witnessed in her
a gradual and charming
change from adolescence to
But the other day when I
spoke to Peggy about her re-
cent experience as a student of
the Alexander Muss High
School in Israel, I noticed a
quantum leap in her self-
assurance arid sense of self-
knowledge, which seemed
more than the natural result of
"growing up."
For eight and a half weeks
Peggy and 120 other American
students became thoroughly
acquainted with Israel's
history, geography and culture
in the interdisciplinary
academic setting of High
School in Israel's Mosenson
Campus in Hod Hasheron.
The course work, which in-
cluded more than 350 hours of
in-class study concentrating on
the chronological history of
Israel from the biblical period
up to modem day, also entail-
ed afternoon "sequentials,"
where students fulfilled
academic commitments to
their American high schools in
science, math and foreign
languages, under the supervi-
sion of tutors.
Peggy Rapaport
Peggy, a senior at the Ben-
jamin School in North Palm
Beach who hopes to attend
American University in
Washingtin, D.C. in the fall,
said. "Most American kids
don't know what hard
academic work is." She went
on to describe daily 40-minute
"quizzes," three hour long unit
tests, a midterm exam of five
hours and a 10 hour final which
included seven essays.
To help students with the
workload and with other pro-
blematic adjustments, a
"madrich" and "madricha,"
male and female counselors,
live in the dorms. Along with

"There was an armed guard
in the bus with us when we
hot into dangerous areas,"
? explained. "At first the
ns made me nervous, but I
used to them after a
Irhile." The students also
Hsited a kibbutz after studying
nd discussing the strategic
urity and economic ra-
iwiale for establishing these
ollectives during and after
t first and second Aliyah. "It

"To spend the holidays in

Peggy. She spent Yom Kippur
in Jerusalem, staying with
friends at a Youth Hostel
praying at the Western Wali
and participating in services at
Hebrew Union College.

was no food available at the
Youth Hostel."
Peggy went on to describe
the Simchat Torah celebration
in Tel Aviv, with the city's
main square ablaze with bright
lights. Circles of people sang in
the streets, while rabbis ex-
ultantly danced with Torahs.
"You never saw so many peo-
ple in your life. That kind of
thing would never happen in
America," Peggy observed.
In addition, the students
built a sukkah outside their
dorm and ate almost all their
meals there.
Although there was the op-
portunity to socialize with
Israeli youngsters and
students from countries such
as Argentina, Peggy said that
the closest bonds were formed
among the 30 or so American
students in her dorm, several
of whom were not Jewish. "I
was surprised at first that non-
Jews would want to take part
in the program," Peggy said,
"but in looking back, they may
have gotten the most out of it.
Now they fully understand the
problems Israel and the Jewish
people have."
The students in Peggy's
dorm became so close that
they produced their own year-
book and plan to hold reunions
so they can keep in touch with
one another.
When asked to describe the
impact of the economic
austerity measures and
Kahanism on her experience,
Peggy admitted that neither
was a factor. She did not hear

from the young Israelis,
among whom he is supposedly
garnering support. And
although the prices of bread
and milk have risen
dramatically due to decreased
government price supports,
Peggy said that both staples
are still very inexpensive.
After seeing a good deal of the
country and its people, Peggy
left with the perception that
"nobody in Israel is starving."
On the last day of the pro-
gram Peggy helped organize a
service at Yad Vashem, the
site of the Holocaust
Memorial. "We all grew very
attached to Israel and didn't
want to leave," Peggy said.
Consequently, re-entry into
the American way of life was
not easy. "It's so totally dif-
ferent here," Peggy observed.
"I missed the support of my
friends and counselors as soon
as I got back."
Asked if she someday plann-
ed to make aliyah, Peggy said,
"Before I went, there was a
possibility that I would, but
now I'm not sure. I'd have to
think about it."
Nevertheless, the ex-
Serience as a whole seems to
ave reaffirmed Peggy's com-
mitment to Judaism and
In addition to getting a taste
of college-like academic rigor,
students who participate in the
High School in Israel program
also learn self-discipline and
how to handle freedom. "The
freedom we were given was a
challenge," Peggy said. "We
all matured because was had to
learn how to deal with being on
our own."
Perhaps this is the essense
of the change I noticed during
the interview. It seems certain
that the High School in Israel
program has a noticeable im-
pact on its participants' per-
sonalities, as well as their

For Ethiopian Jews
60 E. 42nd St., NY, NY 10165 (212) 949-9500
Working through the Na-
tional Council of Ethiopian
Jews in Israel, the Zionist
Organization of America has
just established the first
clubhouse apartment for
Ethiopian Jews newly arrived
in the development town of
Kiryat Malachi. The announce-
ment of this new facility was
made by Judge Alfred H.
Kleiman, Chairman of ZOA's
National Executive Commit-
tee, at a recent meeting in
New York.
Kleiman indicated that 30
Ethiopian Jewish families have
just moved into Kiryat Malachi
from two years in an absorp-
tion center and still have
specific needs that can't be
met by the town's community
center. "Therefore," he said,
"ZOA contributed enough
money to fully furnish and
equip an apartment, complete
with kitchen, TV lounge and a
room which can provide day
care for the children. The
women will gain experience in
cooking Israeli food and will
enjoy the facilities and compa-
nionship offered by a sewing
room." Kleiman added that
the clubhouse will be im-
measurably enhanced by the
participation of a full time
social worker.

Battle Of The Budget Continues In Israel
Israeli policy-makers are lock-
ed in a battle of the budget.
Finance Minister Yitzhak
Modai is urging cuts totalling a
half billion dollars in the
1986-87 budgets of the
Defense, Education and
Health Ministries. Premier
Shimon Peres is adamantly
The budget for the next
fiscal year must be submitted
to the Cabinet soon. A series of
meetings between Peres and
Modai has failed to break the
deadlock. Modai reportedly
has warned that without the
specific cuts, important goals
of his economic austerity pro-
gram will not be met on
After a late night meeting
recently, aides to Peres said
the Premier would allow "no
further blows at defense,
education and health." They
noted that cuts in the defense
budget inevitably resulted in
lay-offs and closures
throughout the economy
because the defense establish-
ment is a major contractor of a
host of civilian industries.
There is a political element
in the economic discussions.
The three ministries most af-
fected are headed by Laborites
Yitzhak Rabin, Defense;
Yitzhak Navon, Education;
and Mordechai Gur. Health.
Modai is a Likud Liberal and
there is suspicion in Labor
circles that his demand for

multiplicity of denominations
within the Jewish religion
enhances Jewish options. But
the recent trend toward
polarization and increased in-
terdenominational clashes
within Judaism is jeopardizing
the ideological pluralism in
Jewish life.
This condition was examined
at a symposium recently
presented by the faculty of the
National Jewish Center for
Learning and Leadership
(CLAL). Addressing the ques-
tion, "Will There Be One
Jewish People in the Year
2000?", Rabbi Irving
Greenberg, president of
CLAL, detailed the roadblocks
to unifying the Jewish people
and proposed practical solu-
tions to "bridge religious
gaps" between the Orthodox,
Reform and Conservative
Greenberg, an Orthodox rab-
bi, warned that, while there is
an image of Jews being clan-
nish, "we are heading toward
a communal and personal
tragedy ... a fundamental
split in the Jewish people."
Citing a recent Wall Street
Journal survey, Greenberg
said that there are about
10,000 converts to Judaism an-
nually in the U.S., and he
predicted that 90 percent of
them will be Reform, not
fulfilling the conversion re-
quirements demanded by Or-
thodox and Conservative
Along with the controversial
religious status of converts,
there is also the split over the
issue of patrilineal descent,
Greenberg noted. He asked:
"How can the Reform rab-
binate proclaim the right of

patrilineal descent, when they
know full well that neither the
Orthodox nor the Conser-
vative movement accept such
children as Jewish?"
Greenberg expressed the
fear that Orthodox and Con-
servative parents, seeking to
prevent their children from
marrying offspring of Jewish
fathers and non-Jewish
mothers who are not con-
sidered Jewish accoridng to
halacha (Jewish law) will tell
their children to "stay away
from places where you can
meet Jewish people who are
only passing for Jewish." The
result, he said, will be "aliena-
tion" between Jews and "civil

Pioneer Women Mark 60th Anniversary
A VIVA P.AMWW _:__... ..- ^*K7**.J
Friday, November 22, 1985/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 15
By AVIVA CANTOR significantly contributing
NEW YORK JJTA)w- In members of this society."
All the programs of Pioneer
Women since its inception, she
said, have stemmed from its vi-
sion of the future of Israeli
society, and its philosophy of
1924, Rahel Yanait Ben-Zvi
a leader of the halutzic
(pioneering) movement in
Palestine (and later, wife of
Israel's second president) -
sent an SOS to a friend in
America. She had founded a
women's agricultural training
farm in the stony hills outside
Jerusalem. Now it urgently
needed $500 for a well.
The story of the well is also
the story of the founding of
Pioneer Women now a
50,000-member organization
which celebrated its 60th an-
nivesary at its 29th biennial
convention in Israel Nov.
Yanait had dispatched the
SOS to Sophie Udin, a member
of Poale Zion, the Labor
Zionist Organization of
America. Poale Zion, although
theoretically committed to
women's equality, did not
practice it.
It was at this juncture that
Udin, receiving the SOS about
the well, organized a group of
seven wives of Poale Zion
leaders, who raised the $500
and sent it off. This group
become the nucleus of Pioneer
Women. After others joined,
the group declared itself an in-
dependent Labor Zionist
organization, and incorported
a year later under the name
Pioneer Women.
Shortly after, Pioneer
Women affiliated itself with
Moetzet Hapoalot (Working
Women's Council of
Palestine), now called
Na'amat, an acronym of Work-
ing and Volunteering Women.
Na'amat is today Israel's
largest women's organization,
with 750,000 members and a
network of more than 1,000
educational, vocational, and
social service centers. It is
now, as then, dedicated to
creating a more equitable
society and establishing equal
rights for women in it.
As the organization
prepared to mark its 60th an-
niversary, the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency asked its
national president, Phyllis
Sutker of Chicago, if the
organization is still devoted to
the same goals, uses the same
methods, and has the same
kind of members as when it
"It's a matter of great pride
for us that, ideologically and
philosophically, this is the
same organization as when it
started," she answered.
"Pioneer Women is the prac-
tical expression of building the
programs and institutions that
will help make Israel the kind
of equal and just society we
want it to be, and to give
women the opportunity to be

women's equality. "But you
can't be equal unless you have
opportunities," she continued.
Na'amat has provided them,
initially via training farms,
now through its vocational
education, social servies,
legislative work and lobbying.
And Pioneer Women has sup-
ported Na'amat in this work.
One significant difference
with other American Jewish
organizations that has con-
tinued to today, she said, is
that Pioneer Women was "not
established as a philanthropic
While other Zionist
organizations were established
here to help Israel in specific
programs, only Pioneer
Women "was an outgrowth
from the Israel scene to here
and the only organization
that has a sister organization
with the kind of numbers that
constitute a women's move-
ment in Israel," Sutker said.
Pioneer Women raises about
$3 million annually toward the
support of Na'amat.
In the U.S., Pioneer Women
"is connected with the same
issues as in Israel," Sutker
continued. It supports legisla-
tion and initiates special action
to promote equal rights for
women, reproductive rights,
day care, and social service
Asked about the possibility
of Pioneer Women's becoming
involved in Jewish day care in
the U.S. as a way of reaching
out to working mothers one
of its aims Sutker said, this
"would have been a natural
thing to do if the needs in
Israel were not escalating."
Pointing to Na'amat concern
about having to close day-care
centers in Israel because of the
economic crunch, Sutker
stressed that Pioneer
Women's "funds and energies
need to be directed to Israel.
The situation does not permit
us the luxury of cutting down
on that aspect and elevating
Na'amat, like other Jewish
women's organizations, is con-
cerned about recruiting young
working women, and working
mothers, and providing some
"incentive" for them to
become organizationally ac-
tive, and also responding
"structurally" to the problem
of time availability affecting
women today, a subject the
National Board has been stu-
dying carefully, Sutker said.
About one-half to one-third
of the members of Pioneer
Women are gainfully
employed. "Working class
women were the founders of
Pioneer Women," Sutker said.
Therefore, when women began
returning to the workplace in
the 1970's, Pioneer Women
did not have the same
philosophical difficulties in
dealing with this as did other
organizations. "Working was
not anathema to our women,"
she said.
The most obvious change
since the early days of Pioneer
Women has to do with the
dramatic shift in the kind of
work it supports in Israel and
the people who are doing it,
since the establishment of the
Jewish State.
A series of articles in
Pioneer Woman Magazine in
1980, a condensation of the
Yale University thesis of Nick
Mandelkern (whose late grand-
mother was an early and long-
term member), traced the
organizations evolution. Ac-
cording to Mandelkern's
thesis, Pioneer Women's early
members strongly identified
with the halutza (woman
pioneer). What seemed to be
her "incredibly romantic,
adventurous and free life ex-
cited their imagination .. .
women could only dream"
about the "virtual equality"
the halutza had achieved.
Pioneer Women, Sutker
acknowledged, provided its
members in pre-State days
with a "vicarious experience"
by enabling them to "help the
women who were doing things
in Palestine that they wanted
to do there and couldn't do
Asked whether today's
members could, in the absence
of the halutzot, experience the
same kind of spiritual satisfac-
tion, Sutker said, "The fact
that Na'amat keeps moving in-
to new fields to meet new
needs still gives us the feeling
that we are pioneering."
Theologian Cites Need
For Interreligious Dialogue
MIAMI (JTA) One of
America's foremost
theologians is calling for an
"active affirmation" of inter-
religious dialogue as a way of
avoiding "religious im-
perialism and the threat of a
monolithic future. In remarks
prepared for the opening ses-
sion of the American Jewish
Committee's National Ex-
ecutive Council meeting, Prof.
Harvey Cox adds that a
greater acceptance of religious
pluralism was necessary to off-
set the fear of the escalating
power of Christian
Cox, who is the Victor S.
Thomas Professor of Divinity
at the Harvard University
Divinity School, asserted,
"Christian fundamentalism is
misleading, and not a healthy
basis for interreligious
dialogue. It is a relationship
based on a theology that forces
one group against the other."
Cox, a Baptist minister and
well-known author of many
books and articles on religious
topics, stated that it was im-
perative to encourage dialogue
at religious and theological
levels, and that to avoid tal-
king about divisive topics was
not constructive. He
"In order to get past im-
perialism, we must look
toward the spiritual integrity
of the other, which does not
have to be based on agree-
ment. It is a Providential gift
that we be different. We are at
a stage in history where there
is a more religious and
spiritual basis needed, where
we must strive toward the ac-
tive nurturance of a religiously
pluralistic situation."
This historic stage, he notes,
stems from "the unexpected
rate of artificial intelligence,
combined with a world headed
for homogeneity. We face
what might be called a man-
made single truth. My
colleagues at MIT talk of
'world digitalization,' in which
we would be dependent on in-
formation that can be coded by
computers. That would leave
the human spirit in danger,
when we would face the fear of
excluding the nuances and the
variety of human life."
"Christians and Jews must
go beyond mere toleration,"
he asserted." We must accept
and respect the rights of

children halacha considers
Halacha defines as il-
legitimate children born of il-
licit unions, such as a remar-
riage in which the mother did
not receive a "get" (official
Jewish bill of divorce) from her
Erevious marriage and whom
alacha therefore regards as
an adulteress. Offspring of
adulterous unions are forbid-
den to marry legitimate
children according to Jewish
This situation is exacerbated
with the growing "baal
teshuva" (returnees) move-
ment, Greenberg said. There is
a recurring dilemma among
young people from non-
observant homes who decide
to commit themselves to
Judaism and to become obser-
vant, only to learn that they
are halachically illegitimate.
While Greenberg commend-
ed Rabbi Moshe Feinstein,
dean of the Orthodox rab-
binate and renowned Talmudic
scholar, for attempting to
resolve the problem, ne assail-
ed the ruling that since
Reform rabbis are not valid
rabbis according to halacha,
the marriages they perform
are not valid and do not re-
quire a "get." Greenberg said
that this was a form of
delegitimizing the Reform
Greenberg charged that the
delegitimizing of the other
denominations "diverts each
one from facing its real
issues." If Jews from all
denominations would get
together the Conservative
and Reform, which according
to Greenberg need more
discipline and tradition, and
the Orthodox, which he said
needs more flexibility to res-
pond to contemporary pro-
blems they could ultimately
"exchange agendas and
As an example of estrange-
ment between the denomina-
tions, Greenberg cited the
decision by the Conservative
movement to ordain women as
rabbis, a decision which he ad-
ded has tended to polarize the
Conservative movement itself.
Greenberg said while he
respects the decision on
women rabbis, "it should have
been coupled with a commit-
ment to make extraordinary
efforts to enter into dialogue
with the Orthodox."
He noted that the Conser-
vative movement was too con-
cerned about settling its own
agenda and has said, in effect,
"let others go their own way."
Greenberg added that women
rabbis could have offered "to
refrain from serving as
witnesses on halachic personal
status documents for a decade
on condition that an inten-
sive Conservative-Orthodox
dialogue to work through the
issue be pursued."
Greenberg asserted that
there must be a dialogue so
that each denomination can
find a common solution for
common problems. He said
that if each movement over-
comes stereotypes, they would
not seek solutions that "save
(their) own skin by pushing
others out of the lifeboat."

Peres Outlines Steps
To Aid Economy
TEL AVIV (JTA) The government is to take steps soon to
lower interest rates, Prime Minister Shimon Peres told the Histadrut
convention meeting here.
Peres' address to the 1,501 delegates was devoted to a wide-
ranging review of the economic situation, during which he singled out
tax reform and the lowering of interest rates as the most important
short-range goals facing the government.
He committed the government to drawing up and implementing a
growth policy that would provide 150,000 new jobs within the next five
years and which would enable the transfer of workers from the service
sector to industry.
Before Peres spoke, Histadrut Secretary-General Yisrael Kessar
announced that workers committees in factories and institutions ac-
counting for some 350,000 workers had pledged their support for the
Histadrut's new growth fund. The push for growth fund will be financed
by workers donating one day's pay every six months.

andals Hit Jewish-Owned Stores In Brooklyn
Wism against Jewish-owned
^res in the heavily Orthodox
Lo Park section of Brooklyn
cently has aroused serious
loncern among community
leaders who believe it was a
premeditated act of anti-
Semitism planned to coincide
with the 47th anniversary of
Kristallnacht, the destruction
of Jewish property in Nazi

Germany during the night of
Nov. 8-9, 1938.

two more elementary schools
and two more high schools
were added for the 1985-86
school year, and that four high
schools were closed, for a total
for the 1985-86 year of 498
schools, the same number as in
the previous school year.
The agency for Conservative
day schools, the Solomon
Schechter Day School Associa-
tion, reported continued
growth in the United States.
Three new elementary schools
brought the total of Solomon
Schechter schools for the cur-
rent school year to 66 such
schools 59 elementary and
seven high schools. That was
three more than the U.S. total
of Solomon Schechter schools
in the 1984-85 school year.
Rabbi David Saperstein,
staff director of the task force
for Jewish education of the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations (UAHC),
reported that there are at pre-
sent 11 Reform day schools in
the U.S. and Canada, with
1,100 pupils.
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that the windows of 14 Jewish-
owned or Jewish-indentified
shops were smashed with
"heavy rocks" along a
10-block stretch of 13th
Avenue, the neighborhood
shopping center.
Non-Jewish shops and
businesses were untouched, he
said. There was no graffiti or
slogans. Steinberg said
damage to the windows alone
would amount to about $3,000.
Merchandise was damaged but
there wee no thefts.
New York State
Assemblyman Dov Hikind,
who represents the district,
said he inspected the damage.
He told the JTA he was
convinced the vandalism
was "well planned" and
"methodical." He agreed with
Steinberg that the act could
have been timed to conicide
with the Kristallnacht anniver-
sary and the 10th anniversary
of the passage of the "Zionism
is Racism" resolution by the
UN General Assembly on Nov.
10, 1975. He also suggested
that the anti-Semitic attacks
by the Rev. Louis Farrakhan,
leader of the Nation of Islam,
could have been a factor.
Hikind noted that more
Holocaust survivors live in
Boro Park than in any other
part of the country. Steinberg
said the rock-throwers must
have been outsiders. He said
there have been no racial in-
cidents in the neighborhood.
Hikind and Steinberg, who
met with Capt. Donald Thrash
of the 66th Precinct, said the
police have classified the van-
dalism as a "bias incident,"
meaning racially motivated
and detectives of the special
"bias squad" have been assign-
ed to the investigation.
But Sgt. Diane Kubler of the
Police Department's informa-
tion office told the JTA there
was no evidence yet to
"substantiate" racial motiva-
tion. She said detectives are
canvassing the area for
witnesses. So far no suspects
have been apprehended.

Israel Bonds
Israel Bonds Fashion Show
Set For Dec. 18
The International Premiere
1985 Israel Bond Fashion
Show Luncheon will be held on
Dec. 18, at the Breakers at
noon. "Imagining" is the word
for this season's Made-in-
Israel fashions. It means that
today's woman can declare
their independence from
fashion cliches by creating
their own image from a variety
of choices. These include short
skirts, long skirts, loose
silhouettes, tailored clothes,
vivid colors, a bit of glitter, ex-
citing fabrics and more, all of
which give a woman the ability
to create her own look and
make her own statement.
The 1985 Israel Bond Inter-
national Fashion Show will be
under the sponsorship of the
Women's Division of the State
of Israel Bonds.
Featured will be an assort-
ment of apparel created by
Israel's leading fashion per-
sonalities and by a number of
exciting new fashion talents.
The runway line up will include
clothes from such well-known
houses as Gottex, Gideon
Oberson and Rikma
swimwear; Niba/Sixteen Plus
and Honigman sporstwear;
Gabi Model and Helen Knits
knitwear, and Tadmor leat-
hers, and dramatic cottons
from Biba. Among the new
manufacturers will be Gali ac-
tive sportswear, Donna Gay
and Berger casual wear; Glima
and Magic Touch "fun
clothes," and Gingette
Among the designers are
Israel's top-flight style-makers
such as Gideon Oberson, Oded
Gera, Tamara Jones, and a
new face on the scene, Nilly
Sally Harris will be the coor-
dinator and commentator for
the entire Fashion Show.
Fashions especially designed
by LaRue will be a part of the
Snow and they will also stage
and accessorize this spec-
tacular event.
The LaRue Group is a West
Swimsait fashions from Gideon Oberson will be one of the
many lines on display at the 1985 Israel Bond International
Fashion Show on Dec. 18 at The Breakers.
Palm Beach based
tion, encompassing a dress de-
sign and manufacturing com-
pany and four retail boutiques
located in the Esplanade,
Oakbrook Square, Royal Palm
Plaza in Boca, and on Las Olas
Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. Ac-
cording to LaRue Fashion
Designer, Rudy Sanders, "The
clothes we make are not
necessarily for resort wear or
cruise wear. We ship all over
the country, and lots of stores
order without even having
seen the latest line. They say
they trust me. I put a lot of
thought into the designs. I
want to make the women who
wear them look their best."
The guest speaker at the
Women's Division Luncheon
will be Vera Rosenne, wife of
the Israel Ambassador to the
United States.

tact the Israel Bond Office.
Six Weeks To Mobilize
An all-out six-week cam-
paign to mobilize payments for
all unpaid Israel Bond com-
mitments as part of a special
effort to provide jobs and to
aid Israel's economic recovery
has been announced by Emma
Gerringer chairman/cash
DECEMBER 1-31 (Including New Years Eve)
The Frogei & Mansdoff Families
SINCE 1965
The All New-------------
chairman of the Israel Bond
campaign in Palm Beach.
Gerringer pointed out that
Israel has made drastic cuts in
its national budget in order to
reduce the trade deficit and
slow inflation. In addition, the
people have taken a 20 percent
cut in their real wages. There
has also been a loss of jobs.
"These painful sacrifices are
now showing results," Gerr-
inger noted. "As Israel passes
through this transition period,
its friends in this community
can express their unity with
the nation's efforts to recover
economically by providing
maximum Bond proceeds for
jobs and continued
By their prompt payment for
Israel Bonds, friends of Israel
in Palm Beach can be "true
and active partners with the
people of Israel, as the nation
seeks to overcome its current
economic problems," Gerring-
er said.
Since the birth of the Bond
Organization in 1951, more
than $7.3 billion in Bond pro-
ceeds have been provided for
the economic development of
the nation. More than $4
billion in matured Israel Bonds
have been repaid by the
Government of Israel.

Rabbi Joel Levine will begin
his two part series on "Great
Issues Facing Reform
Judaism" at Temple Judea
Sabbath Services, Friday
evening, Nov. 22 at 8 p.m. at
St. Catherine's Cultural
Center. Cantor Anne Newman
will chant the music.
Rabbi Levine recently
attended the Biennial Conven-
tion of the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations. Over
4,000 Reform Jews from
Europe as well as from every
part of North and South
America were present for the
largest assemblage of Jewish
people at a convention held in
the diaspora.
Rabbi Levine will review
tonight and on Nov. 29 the
issues discussed in Los
Angeles including outreach, an
enhanced emphasis towards
spirituality, a renewal of social
action, a proposed corps of
volunteers similar to the Peace
Corps who would spend a year
with endangered Jewish com-
munities, the establishment of
a commission on Family Life in
the light of the crisis to
contemporary Jewish family
situations, and the continuing
conflict with extreme factions
within Orthodox Judafsm.
Rabbi Levine believes that the
Reform movement emerged
from the convention stronger
and more vibrant than ever.
Child care will be provided.
The Oneg Shabbat will be
sponsored by Mr. and Mrs.
Dan Lesser in honor of their
son, Craig's, Bar Mitzvah that
AT 80, he is still the quiet
man he was at 50. And when
he speaks, I.L. (Si) Kenen
speaks softly. "Did you ever
notice that on those rare occa-
sions when he's angry, Si
'shouts' by lowering his
voice?" asked one long-time
associate, "It forces you to
lean forward and listen hard
just to know what he's
That was just one of the
secrets of Si Kenen's success
as he created and built the pro-
Israel lobby in Washington
over a 35-year period. "It's
true," he recalls, "I didn't
shout and I didn't write people
off either. I always said that
we had only friends and poten-
tial friends. No enemies." But
he qualified that: "Of course,
we aid have a few."
Si Kenen, founder of the
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee (AIPAC) and of
Near East Report, recalls
some of those friends and
"potential friends" in the se-
cond volume of an
autobiography which has just
been published. AH My Causes
begins where his Israel
Defense Line left off. That first
book was a history of
U.S.-Israel relations between
1942 and 1981 and Kenen's
role in that history. AH My
Causes is a look at the per-
sonalities who made the events

Man Stabbed
In Old City
20-year-old Jewish man was stab-
bed and seriously wounded near
the Damascus Gate in the Old Ci-
ty. He was rushed to Hadassah
Hospital on Mt. Scopus where he
underwent emergency surgery.
According to police reports, the
man, Yosef Martin, age 24, was
strolling with a woman friend
when a lone assailant plunged a
kitchen knife into his back. The
weapon may have punctured his
The incident was the second at-
tack an Israeli civilian last
weekend and the second stabbing
in a week near the Damascus
Gate. On Friday night, a Jewish
settler, Gabi Bartal, 30, of Beit
Hagai in the Hebron region of the
West Bank, was ambushed while
driving from his home to Kiryat
Arba. He was treated at Hadassah
Hospital in Jerusalem for hand
and leg wounds.
Last week, a 60-year-old man
was stabbed while shopping near
Damascus Gate. He is still

Israel community has come in
the years since he established
AIPAC in 1951. In 1956, after
eight years of terrorist attacks
from across the Egyptian
border, the Israeli army push-
ed the Egyptians out of the
Sinai Peninsula. The Sinai
campaign eliminated the ter-
rorist threat to Israel from
Egypt and removed Egypt's
ability to block Israeli ships
from using international
Nevertheless, Israel's action
was strongly opposed by the
United States. In a chapter en-
titled "Eisenhower-Dulles,"
Kenen recalls that the Presi-
dent and Secretary of State
applied strong pressure on
Israel to pull back from Sinai
without any Egyptian conces-
sions in return. The
Eisenhower Administration's
strenuous opposition to
Israel's defensive Sinai cam-
paign came during and im-
mediately after a Presiden-
tial campaign in which
Eisenhower was a candidate
for reelection.
Neither political concerns
nor opposition from the pro-
Israel community inhibited
Eisenhower and Dulles from
their anti-Israel actions. As
Kenen points out, "AIPAC
and it wasn't called AIPAC
then was only in its infancy
in '56 and '57. We didn't have
the strength to make
Eisenhower understand that
forcing Israel out of Sinai
would endanger Israel's
security and guarantee
another war. In fact, the
American policy helped pro-
mote a war (in 1967) only ten
years later."
Kenen notes that "things
have certainly changed since
then." He points out that Lyn-
don Johnson's Administration
strongly backed Israel during
the 1967 war and that Presi-
dent Nixon was instrumental
in saving Israel from defeat m
1973. Today, he says, both the
President and Congress
understand "that a strong
Israel is good for the United
States and that Israel con-
tributes far more to the United
States than it takes. I think
that I and my two suc-
cessors, Morrie Amitay and
Tom Dine may have had
something to do with that."
Kenen was, typically,
modest. As Abba Eban puts it,
Kenen is "one of the authentic
architects of the Israel-
America alliance." Employing
the same analogy, Con-
gressman Steve Solarz
(D-N.Y.) says that he and other
Congressional backers of the
alliance are all "carpenters
working to strengthen the
framework Kenen designed
and built. Kenen was the
All My Causes continues the
story of a man who helped
build a relationship that is to-
day one of the cornerstones of
U.S. foreign policy. He didn't
grow rich doing it. On the con-
trary, there were months in
which he received no salary
months in which he advanced
money to AIPAC to keep it go-
ing. He says that he has no
regrets about that. "I
remember the $8,000 years.
But don't forget, I had an in-
valuable fringe benefit. I had a
cherished cause. I still have
