Rabin At CJFAssembly
International Umbrella Yes; PLO Involvement No
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Israeli Defense Minister Yit-
zhak Rabin said here that if
' Jordan ends its demands that
"declared members" of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion be included in peace
negotiations, Israel would not
object to an "international um-
brella" for direct negotiations
with Jordan.
Israel wants "direct and
bilateral" negotiations with
Jordan and "Palestinians that
are not declared PLO
members," Rabin told the
3,200 delegates to the 54th
General Assembly of the Coun-
cil of Jewish Federations at
the Washington Hilton Hotel.
With the PLO we'll not
negotiate."
Rabin said that while "some
international support" cannot
be a substitute for direct
negotiations, if it is needed to
bring Jordan "or any other
Summit Results
Arab country to decide to
negotiate for peace, (it) should
be more than welcome by us."
Rabin made the same point
earlier to reporters at the
State Department after a
meeting with Secretary of
State George Shultz. He said
Premier Shimon Peres had of-
fered to enter into direct
negotiations with Jordan, but
there were two "obstacles"
Jordan's insistence on the par-
ticipation of PLO members
and an international
conference.
Rabin said if the "major
obstacle" of demanding
"declared PLO members" is
removed, then the obstacle of
the "international umbrella" is
"removable." But he stressed
that Israel prefers the pattern
used in the Egyptian-Israeli
talks: the two sides-with the
participation of the United
States. Rabin said it was up to
Jordan now. "The ball is in the
Jordanian court," he said.
In his address to the CJF,
Rabin said he believes Israel
must "take risks for peace. We
have taken too many risks at
war."
He stressed that, "for peace
you have to compromise." He
said in negotiations some of
the demands of the other side
must be met as long as they
"don't undermine the purpose
of Israel, the security of
Israel."
No Tangible Progress
On Soviet Jewry
By TAMAR LEVY
And EDWIN EYTAN
GENEVA (JTA) The
United States and the Soviet
Union issued a joint statement
at the end of a two-day summit
between President Reagan
and Soviet leader Mikhail Gor-
bachev which contained a one-
'and-a-half line reference to
human rights and, by implica-
tion, Jewish emigration. The
statement said that the two
leaders "agreed on the impor-
tance of resolving
humanitarian cases in the
spirit of cooperation."
American sources here said
Reagan and other members of
the American delegation rais-
*d this subject on several occa-
sions. However, Secretary of
State George Shultz and other
unidentified American officials

refused to supply the slightest
details on the human rights
issue, causing speculation that
the Soviets must have been
highly sensitive to this subject.
The only public mention of
the issue of Soviet Jewry was
during an impromptu
45-minute face-to-face ex-
change between the Rev. Jesse
Jackson and Gorbachev. The
militant civil rights leader,
who also addressed Gorbachev
on a number of other subjects,
pressed the reluctant Kremlin
chief on the Soviet Jewry
issue. Gorbachev responded by
noting that "Jews are part of
the Soviet people," that they
"are fine people very
talented people" and that "the
so-called problem of Jews in
the Soviet Union does not
exist."
Leaders of a number of na-
tional Jewish organizations in
the U.S. praised Jackson for
his appeal to Gorbachev and
criticized the Soviet leader for
obfuscation, evasiveness and
deception.
The joint U.S.-USSR state-
ment also said that the two
countries recognized "that ex-
changes of view on regional
issues on the expert level have
proven useful" and "agreed to
continue such exchanges on a
regular basis."
Shultz later said that these
meetings will be at expert level
but also at the level of the two
countries' Foreign Ministers.
Meetings between the

However, he said that in
negotiations with Jordan, the
pattern with Egypt will not be
followed where every inch of
territory acquired in the 1967
Six-Day War was returned.
But to get peace "without giv-
ing anything is an illusion."
On Israel's northern border,
Rabin said Israel has
withdrawn from Lebanon and
is now concerned with
safeguarding the borders and
protecting the towns and peo-
ple in the north.
He said Israel is able to deal
with terrorism but there is no
way to completely ensure
against acts of terrorism. "It
is an illusion to assume that by
one good war you can finish all
wars, all terrorism," he said.
"We have paid too heavily for
the belief in such an illusion."
At the start of his talk, he

Lampert Appointed 1986
General Campaign Chairman
Erwin H. Blonder, president
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County, has an-
nounced the appointment of
Arnold L. Lampert to his se-
cond year as general chairman
of the 1986 Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County/United
Jewish Appeal/Project
Renewal campaign.
Upon making the announce-
ment, Blonder said, "Arnold,
whose strong leadership and
commitment to our most im-
portant cause was "integral to
last year's campaign success,
has earned the respect of the
campaign staff, lay leaders and
the whole Jewish community,
and we are very pleased that
he will be spearheading our ef-
fort again this year."

Lampert, who also serves on
the board of directors and ex-
ecutive committee of the
Jewish Federation, expressed
enthusiasm about this year's
campaign. "I recently return-
ed from the United Jewish Ap-
peal President's mission, and
my wife Marilyn and I observ-
ed significant progress in
terms of Ethiopian absorption,
Project Renewal and set-
tlements in the Arava."
Lampert emphasized this
year's focus on Project
Renewal by stressing the ac-
complishments of the pro-
gram. "I feel that if Project

Knesset Votes To Bar
Consideration Of Racist Bills
JERUSALEM (JTA) The Knesset voted overwhelmingly recently to
bar consideration of racist bills. The vote was on new regulations drafted by the
Knesset's House Committee aimed specifically at racist measures introduced by
Rabbi Meir Kahane, leader of the extremist Kach Party and its sole member of
the Kesset. Also barred by the committee were bills that would deny Israel's
status as a Jewish State.
Labor and Likud joined in supporting the new legislation. The religious par-
ties abstained on grounds that religious legislation might also be affected by the
new rules.
The vote ended a legal battle launched by Kahane after Knesset Speaker
Shlomo Hillel refused to present to the plenum his bills to strip Israeli Arabs of
their citizenship and to forbid marriage between Arabs and Jews.
Kahane appealed to the Supreme Court, which ruled that the Knesset
Presidium Hillel and his aides must allow the formal filing of the bills on
grounds that the only way to cope with Kahane's anti-democratic thrusts was by
the democratic process of Knesset debate.
Hillel delayed compliance, indicating he would sooer resign than bring what
he called "Nuremberg Law" measures before Israel's parliament. Kahane ap-
pealed again to the high court to enforce its earlier ruling by citing Hillel for con-
tempt of court. The three-judge panel said it would consider the appeal but set no
date.
This was rendered moot, however, when the House Committee, acting on
Hillel's request, drafted the regulations allowing him to bar bills of an especially
repugnant nature. Orthodox members of the committee attempted to delay ac-
tion, but Labor and Likud, acting in rare concert, agreed any delay would be a
victory for Kahane.

Ethiopian Olim Urged To Retain Cultural Heritage
By KEVIN FREEMAN
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Although it has been 15 years
since Esther Wube Hollander
boarded the plane that brought
her to Israel, the status of
Jews in her native homeland of
Ethiopia, and the future role of
Ehiopian Jews in Israel, con-
tinue to preoccupy her
thoughts.
"I hope the Ethiopian Jews
in Israel will learn Hebrew and
Israeli culture," she said in an
interview. But at the same
time she expressed a fierce
concern that Ethiopian Jews
"maintain the culture of
Ethiopia. This is important."
Hollander, who has devoted
considerable time as a
volunteer at various Ethiopian
absorption centers in Israel,
said the dramatic cultural
changes faced by recently ar-
rived immigrants have been
difficult for many Ethiopians,
especially the elderly. And, she
said, the recent battle between
the Ethiopians and the Chief
Rabbinate in Israel has only
exacerbated the situation.
But Hollander said the
dramatic rescue of Ethiopian
Jews airlifted last winter
from the Sudan was too late
for her mother and sister who
l
i
died several years ago from
what she described as
negligent medical treatment.
Her father, however, now lives
in Israel as do her eight
brothers and sisters.
The 34-year-old Hollander
was born in the Ethiopian
village of Wenige in Gondar
Province. She is a small, slight
woman, a mother of two
children, married to a Polish
Jew living in Herzliya. An ar-
dent Zionist, she had no
misgivings about leaving
Ethiopia in 1971 to make aliya.
Growing up in her village in
Gondar Province was very dif-
ficult, Hollander recalled. She
said she was the only Jewish
student in her class and that
there was some anti-Jewish
sentiments from other
students toward her. "It was
very hard," she said. "I'm a
Jew, and I'm not afraid to be a
Jew."
She has not returned to
Ethiopia. But last summer
Hollander had her first oppor-
tunity to return to Africa after
15 years. She was the only
Ethiopian Jew in the Israeli
delegation to the Women's
Conference Forum at the
Nairobi End of the Decade
Women's Conference.
Her views on the conference
and her return to Africa after
so many years were mixed.
She was able to speak with
women from other parts of the
world attending the United
Nations sponsored gathering
but she also encountered the
hostility that is usually reserv-
ed for the Israelis.
She recalled an incident at a
workshop on the situation of
refugee women and children
organized by Palestinian
women. At that workshop, the
chairperson would not allow
the Israeli women to speak
Finally, the representative
from Iraq spoke and accused
Israel and other states of
responsibility for the Iran-Iraq
war.
At this point, Hollander

Weiss Appointed Luncheon Chair
Of Regional Campaign Conference
Mortimer Weiss, a board
member of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County and
a member of its Campaign
Cabinet, has been appointed
luncheon chair of the Regional
Conference on High Rise Cam-
paigning, to be held on Thurs-
day, Dec. 12 at the Fort
Lauderdale Marriott.
Having been appointed by
Herb Cannaric, conference
chairman, Weiss cited the im-
portance of the conference.
"This meeting is particularly
significant," he said, "because
it's the first time that cam-
paign leaders from all four
Gold Coast communities will
meet to discuss this specific
type of campaigning."
The conference agenda in-
cludes discussions of the
educational and public rela-
tions approaches to high-rise
campaigning and campaign
management, and there will be
a campaign strategy workshop
led by Dr. Areyeh Nesher,
director of United Jewish Ap-
peal's National Training
Center.
The keynote speaker at the
conference will be Asher Ben
Natan, Israel's Former Am-
bassador to France and Ger-
many, who presently serves as

Soviet Jewry Press Conference Attracts Local Media
By LLOYD RESNICK
Despite inclement weather
from Hurricane Kate, a large
contingent from the local
i attended a press con-
ce sponsored by the
Soviet Jewry Task Force of
the Jewish Federation's Com-
munity Relations Council on
Tuesday, Nov. 19. The press
briefing was scheduled to coin-
cide with the Reagan-
Gorbachev summit in Geneva.
Expressing hope that impor-
tant strides in the area of
Soviet Jewry would be made at
the summit,. Rabbi Joel Levine
of Temple Judea, co-chair of
the Soviet Jewry Task Force,
said. "Never before in human
history have so many people
been held hostage for so long.
Hundreds of thousands of
Jews are being forced to re-
main behind a solid wall even
more impenetrable than the
metaphorical "Iron Curtain."
Describing the dire situation
for Prisoners of Conscience
and Refuseniks, Rabbi Levine
said, "They cannot declare
openly what they desire sopas-
sionately in their hearts. They
suffer the denial of their legal
and moral rights to live where
and as they wish."
l-.vinr went on to praise
President Reagan's sensitivity
to the Soviet Jewry issue, but
he added, "Words of support
were not enough 40 years ago
and they will not suffice now.
They must be backed up bv
action."
On behalf of the Soviet
Jewry Task Force, Levine call-
ed for an agreement which
would ensure prompt release
and emigration of all Jewish
Prisoners of Conscience and
Refuseniks and grant permis-
sion to allow Soviet Jews to
emigrate according to the
same procedure consistently
applied to other citizens.
Levine also called for the
cessation of punitive actions
against potential Jewish
emigrants and against Jews
who attempt to engage in
Jewish cultural or religious
activities.
Levine concluded his
remarks by claiming that
Soviet adherence to basic
human rights as outlined in the
Helsinki Accords would foster
international peace. "We
believe that issues of peace
and human rights are in-

Young Adult Division To Hold First Event
Erwin H. Blonder, president
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County, has ap-
pointed Scott Rassler as chair-
man of the newly-formed
Young Adult Oivison Task
Force, which currently con-
sists of 25 concerned young
professionals and business
people who are interested in
developing a sense of
awareness and involvement
among their contemporaries in
the community.
The first Young Adult Divi-
sion event, open to all in-
terested business and profes-
sional people, will be a lun-
cheon at the Palm Beach Air-
port Hilton on Tuesday, Dec.
10 at noon.
Over the past couple of years
a growing number of young
Jewish professionals and
business people have chosen to
make homes, raise families
and pursue careers in the West
Palm Beach area. "Our Task
Force," Rassler explained, "is
designed to help start the ball
rolling in an effort to fill some
of the many voids of an other-
wise transient society and help
to instill a sense of community
among our peers."
"We've assembled an
^.outstanding core group of
highly motivated and
energetic people and are work-
ing hard to create an environ-
ment that will enable young
Jews to meet each other and
begin developing business and
personal contacts." Rassler
emphasized, "We want to
make people aware of the
tremendous opportunities
associated with being in on the
Eound floor as our young
wish community begins to
come into its own. Working
with Federation's current
leaders, we will create oppor-
tunities for tomorrow's
leaders to become actively in-
volved in the community to-
day. We are in the process of
implementing programming
ideas which will encourage
young, vibrant people to iden-
tify with their Jewishness and
develop a sense of commit-
ment and belonging to the
community. It's most en-
couraging that Federation
welcomes our suggestion that
young Jews can and should
make a difference in the future
of Palm Beach County."
The guest speaker at the
Young Adult Division lun-
cheon on Dec. 10 will be
Menachem Savidor, a member
of Israel's Knesset for eight
years and past speaker of the
Knesset who has served on its
Foreign Affairs, Defense, and
Finance Committees.
After retiring from the
Israel Defense Force as a Lt.
Colonel in 1955, Savidor went
on to hold important manage-
ment positions in the private
sector, including General
Manager of Israel Railways.
Having authored countless
articles and essays covering
politics, economics and finan-
cial management, Savidor was
honored t>y Chaim Herzog,
president of Israel, at the
opening session of the current
Knesset in August 1984.
"Menachem Savidor has
made an important contribu-
tion to our nation," Herzog
said, "by his efforts to enhance

UN Resolution 3379 Complicates Search For Peace
By ALLECK A. RESNICK
It is ten years since the
United Nations passed Resolu-
tion 3379, that condemned
Zionism as a form of racism.
Conventional wisdom has it
that the UN is a debating
society whose resolutions are
not to be taken seriously, but
the reality is far more com-
plex. The resolution has had an
impact, and enough time has
passed for an accurate
perspective.
The equation of Zionism
with racism was intended to
delegitimize Israel and
stigmatize Jews who sup-
ported it. It has been effective
in the Soviet Union, where
newspapers constantly iden-
tify Zionism with Nazism. The
resolution gave the Soviets a
new weapon with which to
discourage Russian Jews from
applying for exit visas to
Israel.
But in the United States,
Resolution 3379 helped
Americans face the fact that
the United Nations, as
presently constituted, is utter-
ly without moral seriousness.
The event helped pave the way
for a reappraisal of American
involvement in such UN
organizations as the Interna-
tional Labor Organization and
UNESCO.
Jews in the United States
are probably more distrustful
and insecure, and more deter-
mined than ever to support
Israel. The UN resolution had
singled out for condemnation
one particular form of na-
tionalism, Jewish nationalism,
-.
from all others. It reminded
Jews of the days when Hitler
had singled them out, first for
abuse, then for genocide, while
the rest of the world abandon-
ed them.
Modern Zionism, though
rooted in a religious tradition,
began as a political movement
to establish a national
homeland for the Jews. But
the overtones transcend or-
dinary politics. The State of
Israel was established only
three years after the
Holocaust, and so it came to be
seen as an affirmation of
Jewish life in the face of death.
Even secular Jews saw in it a
kind of national Jewish resur-
rection. Jews, more than most
others, have suffered from
racism, and so its identifica-
tion with Zionism was par-
ticularly galling.
Israelis, having been vilified
by Arabs for decades before
the resolution was passed,
took little notice; their most
eloquent response came years
later, when they airlifted
thousands of black Ethiopian
Jews to Israel.
The most devastating effect
of the UN declaration has been
on the prospect of Mid-East
peace. By identifying Zionism
and Israel with racism, the
struggle between Arabs and
Jews ceases to be an ordinary
dispute between nations, per-
mitting compromise. It
becomes an apocalyptic war
between good and evil, bet-
ween the human and the in-
human. Self respecting nations
and individuals can't make

noted that the "mini-crisis"
over Ariel Sharon has cap-
tured the headlines. But he
said this had nothing to do
with Israel's real problems.
At the State Department,
when he was asked if he had
discussed the Cabinet crisis
with Shultz, Rabin replied,
"What do we have to discuss in
Washington problems that
have to be solved in
Jerusalem."
The Labor Party leader said
.that the national unity -govern-
ment of Labor and Likud has
worked to help solve Israel's
economic problems. He said
success has been achieved by
large cuts in the Israeli stan-
dard of living and for the first
time in the military budget.
"Israel has never taken such
a security risk," he said, ad-
ding it has cut its military
budget while the Arab coun-
tries continue to build up their
arms.
During the program, there
was a commemoration of the
40th anniversary of the libera-
tion of the death camps, with
Washington area day school
children lighting six large
memorial candles.
The most moving moment
was an appearance by Avital
Scharansky, wife of Anatoly
Scharansky, who had been
conducting a vigil outside the
Soviet Embassy here before
leaving for the Geneva sum-
mit. She urged all the General
Assembly delegates to par-
ticipate in the various
demonstrations going on to
show the Soviet Union the
massive support in this coun-
try for Soviet Jews. Following
her short address to the
Assembly, more than 600
delegates joined her in a two-
hour vigil opposite the Soviet
Embassy.

as traitors, traffickers with the

why the assassination of Sadat

December Dilemma
As December approaches, Jewish com-
munities worldwide ready for the celebration
of Chanukah, while Christmas is the focal
point for Christians.
At this time of year, many questions are
raised about the infusion of religious themes
in the public school environment.
SHOULD CHILDREN PAR-
TICIPATE IN CHRISTMAS
PLAYS IN THE PUBLIC
SCHOOLS?
Christmas plays generally portray Chris-
tian church themes, which have NO place in
the public schools. The participation of
students in a "winter festival" preserves the
holiday atmosphere, but avoids religious con-
notations. Such winter festivals are therefore
more appropriate seasonal events for the
public schools. Schools can use the holiday
season as an opportunity to celebrate the
brotherhood of mankind.
DOES RELIGIOUS CELEBRA-
TION BELONG IN THE PUBLIC
SCHOOLS?
NO! The principle that public schools shall
be religiously neutral has been established
and accepted in a long line of Supreme Court
decisions. The use of public funds for any
religious observances in public schools under-
mines the basic principle of separation of
church and state. Further, the beliefs of the
majority are likely to be advanced at the ex-
pense of the minority, whenever religious
holidays are observed in public schools. To
maintain -church-state -separation, neither-
ChristmaSy Chanukah, nor any other religious
festival should be celebrated in this setting.
WHAT IS APPROPRIATE?
The following are examples of activities
which are appropriate:
1. Education about the principles of
religious freedom and religious liberty.
2. Intercultural programs which focus on
the role religion has played in the develop-
ment of society.
3. Factual and objective teaching about
religion.
4. Religious symbols used by individual
students as a model of self-expression.
5. The study of religious music as part of a
music appreciation course, or as part of a
study of various lands and cultures.
6. Recognition of a student's absence from
school due to a religious holiday as an excused
absence.
WHAT IS NOT APPROPRIATE?
1. Organized prayer.
2. Distribution of Bibles.
3. The public display or presentation of
religious symbols by school authorities.
4. Presentation of religious plays and films
in a religious context.
5. Religious programs or prayer meetings
during the school day.
6. Penalizing students for an absence due to
a religious holiday.
7. Singing of Christmas carols and/or
Chanukah songs.

Random Thoughts
By MURIEL LEVITT
I have never been one to
stop and make goo-goo eyes at
babies in carriages. Neither
have I been able to make kint-
zen with little toddlers. Carry-
ing this a step further, I could
never figure out why friends
would stranglehold me to show
wallets full of snapshots while
lauding their aynecklach
beyond reason. In my time, I
must have watched hours and
hours of cutesy home movies
till they nearly drove me up
the wall. But all of this chang-
ed dramatically when I become
a grandmother twice in 15
months! It's a brand new ball
game, gang.
My son and his wife seem
nicely dedicated towards
perpetuating the Levitt name.
Happily, they are planning a
large family and we are
delirious at the thought of
more and more wonderful
grands. Jewish grandparen-
ting is a whole new thing to us,
but we are learning quickly
and enjoying every minute.
I assume that many of my
readers are in the upper age
brackets. They also have
grandbabies and can surely
relate to what I have to say.
Once the little kiddos start
coming, it is happy time all the
way. Their parents have all the
hard work and serious respon-
sibility and the difficult job of
raising the kids. We visit as
often as we can, give limitless
love, and shep naches till we
are about to burst. There is a
subtle difference in the family
relationship with a deeper and
closer feeling of togetherness.
Grandchildren grow even
more precious as they grow
older, as they become a never
ending source of pleasure and
pride. Right? Right!
Let me tell you about my
two. The "doctor" is a little
past two years old. He is
blonde, blue eyed and a real
hellion. My husband says that
if he were anyone else's kid we
would call him wild and un-
disciplined, but since he
belongs to us, we translate
that to being alert and in-
quisitive. How about that?
Besides being a beautiful child,
he has sharp mind, gets into
everything and shows promise
of being very special. Since he
is a Levitt, what else could he
be?
His baby brother, the
"lawyer," is quite different.
Only slightly younger, you can
already see that he is a thinker
and more serious. His mother
predicts that he will be the
deep one in the family and she
might well be right. He seems
to observe the world and his
surroundings with intense pre-
occupation and deliberation.
Who can tell... he might turn
out to be the Attorney
General.
It is a beautiful thing to see
the two of them together. The
doctor runs around the house
laughing and creating excite-
ment, while the lawyer follows
him adoringly. They comple-
ment each other so well and
the sight of them is enough to
bring tears to this bubbeh's
eyes. And if I behave this way
now, can you just imagine how
I'll carry on when they are Bar
Mitzvahed?
So there you have it. From
being a person who thought
kiddies were okay but never
noticed them very much, I
have turned into your garden
variety, typically crazy Jewish
Grandma. My babies are the
light of my life, the air I
breathe, and a joy too deep and
meaningful to really explain.
And if you meet me in Publix
or the Kosher butcher, I'm
perfectly willing to spend time
looking at your pictures.
However, in return, I
guarantee to hold you prisoner
for at least 20 minutes show-
ing you my brag book, telling
you meisahs, and boring you to
pieces about my boys. I am a
card-carrying, extraordinary,
meshugah grandmother like
everyone else I know. I con-
sider us all blessed and I
wouldn't trade places with a
younger person for all the
treasure in the universe. Don't
all you Grandmas agree? I cer-
tainly hope so!

MAYORS SPEAK TO THE PRESIDENT
FOR SOVIET JEWRY.
Dear Mr. President:
As the mayors of cities from every section of the United States, we want to
share with you the profound concern felt by men and women of conscience) in our
communities about a most oppressed minority, the Jews of the Soviet Union.
We know you share that concern.
The situation of Soviet Jews has not eased under the new Soviet leadership.
Quite the contrary. It has deteriorated.
Emigration remains tragically low. 51,000 were able to leave in 1979. This
yearjust 820. through the end of October.
The authorities crack down on any signs of organized Jewish life. Hebrew
teachers are sent to prison: Edelshtein. Kholmiansky, Volvovsky, Brodsky,
Nepomniaschy. Levin, Zelichonok, and othersall within the past year.
But even in the face of this repression, Soviet Jews courageously demand the
Soviet government grant the most elementary right: to permit them to live as
Jews, to permit them to emigrate to Israel.
General Secretary Gorbachev must be held to his recent public statement that
even Soviet citizens who know "state secrets" have only to wait "five or ten
years" to leave. Thousands of Soviet Jews have waited that requisite term, and
are still waiting. Prestin... Abramovich... Goldshtein... Lerner...Taratuta.. .and
the list goes on and on.
The Soviet Union must be held to its international commitments on human rights,
especially the Helsinki Final Act. How can Americans trust the word of the Soviet
authorities on issues of war and peace, when they refuse to honor the solemn
international obligations they have undertaken? This is the test of their credibility.
Mr. President, we. and our fellow Americans, look to you to carry the mes-
sage of Soviet Jews to General Secretary Gorbachev in Geneva. We look to you
to hold the Soviets to their commitments on the human rights of Soviet Jewry.
Our thoughts and prayers go with you to Geneva.

Fri Hillel Changes With The Times
But The Goal Remains The Same

By LLOYD RESNICK
Like many other successful
Jewish organizations, the
B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation
has changed since its inception
in order to meet the needs of
today's Jewish college and
university student com-
munities. Hillel's numerous
achievements stem from the
work of dedicated profes-
sionals, support from B'nai
B'rith chapters and from the
Jewish community as a whole,
and from Hillel's philosophical
commitment to student
freedom in creating and im-
plementing programming.
"Hillel groups tend to be
student-run organizations,"
said Jenifer Fischer, program
coordinator for Hillel in Palm
Beach County. "The students
decide what they want in
terms of programs, and the
professional
facilitate."
staff helps
Nevertheless, Ms. Fischer,
who visits regularly with stu-
dent groups from Palm Beach
Junior College, the College of
Boca Raton and Florida Atlan-
tic University (FAU), said that
while the programming has
evolved as student needs have
changed, the ultimate goals of
Hillel have remained
consistent.
"We attempt to bring
Jewish students together so
they can feel a part of a stu-
dent community and a part of
the greater Jewish communi-
ty," explained Ms. Fischer.
"This sense of belonging is
helpful for individuals and for
the community of which they
are a part," she added.
While noting that Hillel
"covers the whole scope of
Three Lebanese Villages Seek To Be Incor-
porated Into The Security Zone
TEL AVIV (JTA) Three Lebanese villages have
asked to be incorporated into the security zone north of the
Israel border which is protected by the Israel-backed South
Lebanon Army (SLA) and elements of the Israel Defense
Force. The villages lie just outside the zone. Apparently
they hope to benefit from the relative quiet of the security
zone and from opportunities for trade and commerce with
Israel, senior IDF sources said. A decision is expected after
it is ascertained that a majority of the villagers favor incor-
poration. According to IDF sources, the security zone set
up after Israel completed its withdrawal from Lebanon last
June, has been a success.
Mitzvah Council Promotes
Guardian Ad Litem Program
active as a guardian ad litem.
She was trained by Dr.
Gerber's volunteer group. Her
enthusiasm for the program
sparked the participation of
Olam Chapter's Sara Halbert,
a semi-retired counselor-at-law
from New York City. Her
training serves her well when
working with the children
assigned to her; however, her
background is not a require-
ment for being a guardian ad
litem.
Dr. Gerber needs more
volunteers; her next training
session starts on Jan. 14. With
the enthusiasm and interest
her talk generated, we hope
that many more members of
Mitzvah council will volunteer
as guardians ad litem, serving
the community and the State
of Florida.
B'nai B'rith Women are
pledged to support several
meritorious programs, but the
members of this service
organization always find time
to volunteer wherever needed
in their communities.
During the past year, Mitz-
vah Council, which embraces
the Chapters Chai, Masada,
Menorah, Ohav and Olam, has
been supporting the Domestic
Assault Shelter. The shelter
provides temporary housing
and food for battered wives
and children until their cases
are resolved. Money and goods
donated by the chapters are
delivered every month by Mitz-
vah Council to the shelter.
At the most recent meeting
of Mitzvah Council on Nov. 4,
Dr. Ilene Gerber, circuit direc-
tor of the Guardian Ad Litem
Program, explained her com-
mitment on behalf of the State
of Florida. There are
"thousands of cases of abused
and neglected children
brought to court every year.
Her program consists of
recruiting and training
volunteers who are then
assigned to children's cases.
These guardians ad litem, aid-
ed and monitored by trained
professionals, represent abuse
and neglect cases in court and
follow them afterwards. A
lawyer representing the case
of such a child in court would
generate tremendous cost for
the State, and is frequently in-
sufficiently informed because
of lack of time to conduct an in-
depth legal investigation.
Children can thus be protected
and spared harmful and
repetitious questioning by
various agencies and the court.
For the past year Anita
"otkin from Ohav Chapter was
Jenifer Fischer
Jewish life," Ms. Fischer
pointed out that rap sessions
and panel discussions usually
focus on educational, social
and political concerns, and
that Hillel promotes student
access to religious services and
often provides the opportunity
for strictly social activities.
Through Hillel, local rabbis
are available to students, and a
South County social worker
from the Jewish Family and
Children's Service is available
for consultations with
students. "Hillel provides an
avenue for lots of interests.
Students can become involved
at any and all levels,"
reiterated Ms. Fischer.
A topic of intense interest to
Jewish students and to the
Jewish community at large is
that of. interdating and inter-
marriage. However, statistics
which point toward the
ultimate dissolution of the
American Jewish heritage as a
result of rampant intermar-
riage do not tell the whole
story.
Recalling some very heated
discussions on the issue recent-
ly, Ms. Fischer said, "Opinions
vary, but many students feel
strongly about the problems of
intermarriage where children
are concerned. Many students
I come in contact with feel that
it is vitally important for their
children to carry on the tradi-
tions of Judaism and to
understand and celebrate the
holidays."
Even students who have in-
terdated, Ms. Fischer said,
have come to realize the impor-
tance of marrying within the
faith. "Students realize that
college is a time when they
may meet a potential spouse,
and some express concern that
even one date with a non-Jew
could become serious," she
explained.
On the other hand, some
students argue that one's self-
knowledge as a Jew is most im-
portant and that, as one stu-
dent put it, "intermarriage is
not bad as long as you know
you are a Jew.
Ms. Fischer clarified Hillel's
role in this campus debate by
saying. "What's most impor-
tant is that young people are
talking about this issue. Hillel
doesn't criticize those who in-
terdate, but we point out the
possible practical and emo-
tional advantages of dating
and marrying Jews."
As with all organizational at-
tempts to solidify the Jewish
community, outreach is an im-
portant part of Hillel's work.
Said Ms. Fischer, "Firstly, we
have to let Jewish students
know we are out here and that
there are many good reasons
to get involved. Many college
students in Palm Beach and
Broward Counties work and
go to school full time, and we
have to work hard to convince
them that their spare time can
be enjoyably and constructive-
ly spent with Hillel."
At FAU, where there is a
large residential student
population, Hillel sponsors
residence hall programs and
educates resident advisors.
Hillel is also concerned with
reaching out to the off campus
Jewish community, and Ms.
Fischer explained that a great
deal of effort is spent contac-
ting local synagogues, com-
munity leaders, B'nai B'rith
chapters and Federations to
inform them about Hillel
activities.
A primary example of-the
organizational cooperation
promoted by Hillel is the Cam-
pus Lifestyles panel discussion
scheduled for Wednesday, Jan.
8 at the Jewish Community
Day School. Co-sponsored by
the Vocational Education
Department of the Jewish
Family and Children's Service,
and the Youth Services
Department of The Jewish
Community Center of the
Palm Beaches, the two-hour
program will allow numerous
college representatives to
meet with area high school
students and their parents.
Another important aspect of
Hillel's service to the Jewish
community is the on-campus
United Jewish Appeal cam-
paign which Hillel students
organize each year.
Ms. Fischer explained that
the amount of money raised is
less significant than the con-
sciousness that is raised. "We
know that college students are
not in a position to be big
money-givers," she said, "but
we work so that'they become
educated about needs in Israel
and in the local community.
From their understanding of
and commitment to the cause,
they feel a need to contribute
tzedakah."
Noting that the campus
drive utilizes local and national
campaign leaders and profes-
sionals for educational pro-
grams, Ms. Fischer said, "We
have responsible students in-
volved in the campaign.
Although our gift is nominal,
we are proud to play a part in
such vital work.
Upcoming Hillel activities in-
clude an area-wide Chanukah
party at the University of
Miami on Dec. 7 and dormitory
programs in celebration of the
Festival of Lights at FAU and
the College of Boca Raton on
Dec. 8.

programs may be obtained by

cy Tobin, Hillel director for

Refreshments and socializing will follow ft -
struggle for survival, there
would be a thousand dazzling
gems illustrating the timeless
and wonderful traditions that
have linked our people,
generation to generation,
beyond the edges of time
remembered, across con-
tinents and seas and memories
past. For we are a people of
tradition. Tradition born of
sorrow and celebrated with
joy. Tradition honoring days of
remembrance or marking
milestones of life. Tradition
glorifying achievement and re-
quiring commitment, too.
Throughout history, we Jews
have refused to accept the cer-
tain. From Egypt to Ethiopia,
King David to David Ben-
Gurion, we've beaten
unbeatable tyranny, rescued
the hopeless, dispelled the
darkness of hatred with the
light of compassion and
understanding.
Which is why it should come
as no surprise that even in the
face of life's two greatest cer-
tainties, death and taxes,
we've created an alternative:
The Endowment Fund of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County. Your Endow-
ment Fund gift turns time into
an asset. It ensures your good
works continue, even when
you cannot. At the same time,
your gift helps ease the
somewhat more immediate
burden of taxation.
Perhaps the Endowment
Fund isn't a complete alter-
native to the inevitable, but,
with traditional Jewish in-
genuity, it's about as close as
you can get.
Simply put the Endow-
ment Fund offers you a variety
of ways to make a charitable
investment in the strength of
our community. While our En-
dowment Fund began less
than a decade ago. its origins
go back a little further.
As one source put it. "Thou
shat not wholly reap the cor-
ners of your land. Or. as
Maimorudes said. "Anticipate
charity by preventing
poverty."
Both concepts being there
for others and planning for
future needs are at the
heart of the Endowment Fund
concept. The Endowment
Fund picks up where the an-
nual campaign leaves off. en-
suring there is alwa
reserve for the emergencies
we knqw wili inevitably occur.
What does your Endowment
Fund gift mean* Start think-
ing in terms of modern
miracles. In Israel our funds
can work to help the disadvan-
taged. to establish an in-
novative program, to create
new volunteer action projects,
to provide love and dignity for
our older citizens. Our funds
can help older Jews survive a
bitter winter in Eastern
Europe and are there for an
Ethiopian emergency. And.
here at home, our funds can
support programs from arts to
education, vocational training
to family counseling, senior
residence programs to day
care centers.
Is the word "miracle" too
strong? When you consider the
alternatives for those we help
probably not.
StiB not sold on the value of
the Endowment Fund? I
sider this. The rewards are
more than practical, they are
deeply personal, deeply satis-
fying. The Endowment Fund
is an excellent way to protect
the future of our community.
Without the Endowment
Fund, there would be no
source to support the in-
novative programs we need to-
day. And there might be no
support for our children and
their children to count on
tomorrow.
Of course, the Endowment
Fund story is not entirely one
of ideals fulfilled. The program
reflects some very practical
business principles that have a
way of paying off especially
around April 15.
And, that is only the beginn-
ing of the Endowment Fund
story. We will be discussing
specific charitable oppor-
tunities available to a prospec-
tive donor. For example, a
Philantropic Fund, a gift
through your will, a gift of new
or existing life insurance
policies, a Charitable Re-
mainder Trust, a Charitable
Lead Trust, or a Supporting
Foundation to name a few.
Further columns will highlight

vide discussion designed for

One final word. Although
the information presented jr,
these columns will be accurate
and informative, it is impor.
tant to remember that we will
discuss these matters in verv
general terms. Before taking
action on any such sugges
tions, it is important to seek
the advice of your attorney, ac-
countant, investment
counselor, insurance agent or
other professional. This is
because every person's situa-
tion is different, and as such

Labor Opposes Changes In Law of Return
KIAMESHA LAKE, N.Y.
_ (JTA) Israeli Prime
Minister Shimon Peres told
3,000 delegates at the United
Synagogue of America bien-
nial convention that the Labor
Party would continue to op-
pose any attempt to change
the Law of Return.
"I believe that if another
test vote will come in the
Knesset, the majority will re-
ject any changes in the ex-
isting law," Peres told the
Conservative laymen and rab-
bis assembled here. He stated
that the Labor Party would
continue to oppose any legisla-
tion that might be offered.
"We don't change our minds
every half-year; this remains
our policy.'
The Prime Minister, ad-
dressing the convention from
Jerusalem live via satellite,
pleaded for a 10 to 15-year
moratorium on this problem.
1 nis is an issue that divides
us. Let us instead concentrate
on those problems that keep us
together." He offered such
common concerns on Soviet
Jews, peace in the Middle
Last, enriching the younger
generation with a Jewish
education, and strengthening
Israel spiritually, economically
and politically, as areas where
Israel and diaspora Jewry can
work together.
Turning to the current fer-
ment regarding Soviet Jews
Peres told the United
Synagogue convention that
the gates of emigration will
not be opened up again unless
Soviet Jews go straight to

Foreign Minister Eduard

hold regular meetings in the
future.
Neither Shultz nor Gor-
bachev, who gave a press con-
ference before leaving for
Moscow via Prague, would be
more specific on the discus-
sions on regional problems. It
is believed that the Middle
East was discussed after the
subject was raised by the
Soviets.
The joint statement also said
the two leaders intend to work
to "enhance the effectiveness
of the treaty (on non-
proliferation) inter alia by
enlarging its membership." It
is believed that the two parties
want to curb the amount of
nuclear weapons of countries
which have signed the non-
proliferation agreement. The
joint statement also stressed
the need "to promote the
strengthening of the Interna-
tional Atomic Energy Agency
and to support the Agency's
activities. Reagan reported

bachev during which the two
met for close to six hours alone

Israel."
He based this assertion on
private conversations "direct
and indirect" that he and other
Israeli officials have held with
Soviet diplomats.
Peres said, "We must keep
this issue alive, diplomatically
and publicly, to win the day.
He was told that the United
Synagogue sent telegrams to
President Reagan and Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev, call-
ing for discussions at the sum-
mit by the two leaders on "this
grave human rights question."
The messages were signed by
1,845 delegates representing
hundreds of synagogues from
the United States and Canada.
Asked about the next step in
the peace process, Peres
stated that new movement
would have to await the
response of King Hussein.
"I urge King Hussein to let
other Palestinians from the
West Bank participate in
peace talks, so that we may
move forward," Peres said.
Five Jewish Activists Jailed For Sit-In At
Aeroflot Office In Geneva Ordered Freed by
Magistrate
By TAMAR LEVY AND EDWIN EYTAN
GENEVA (JTA) Five Jewish activists who were ar-
rested for staging a sit-in at the office of Aeroflot, the
Soviet airline, here were ordered freed by a Swiss
magistrate.
They had been charged with criminal trespass and
damage to property. But the magistrate appointed to ex-
amine the case in a pre-trial hearing decided there was "no
case" for the five to answer. Although he ordered their im-
mediate release, they were kept in custody pending an ap-
peal by the police against the court decision.
Soviet representatives did not press the charges, ap-
parently to avoid additional publicity. The five, be-
ing held in Geneva's modern Champs Dollon prison,
where, according to Swiss officials, they were provided
with kosher food, were expected to be held until President
Reagan and Soviet leader Mikahil Gorbachev ended
their summit meeting and then expelled from
Switzerland or allowed to leave voluntarily. The
magistrate's order to free them immediately came as a
surprise.
The five are Rabbi Avi Weiss of Riverdale, N.Y., chair-
man of the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry; Moshe
Ronen, president of the North American Jewish Student
Network; David Makovsky, chairman of the World Union
of Jewish Students; Steve Feuerstein, national coordinator
of the Student Zionist Council; and Yosef Mendelevich, a
former Soviet Jewish Prisoner of Conscience who present-
ly lives in Israel.

Syrian Dogfight
National UJA Leaders Meet With Peres
Demonstrates Instability
By GIL SEDAN
And HUGH ORGEL
JERUSALEM (JTA) An
aerial dogfight in which Israeli
jets shot down two Syrian MIGs
over Lebanon last week was in-
itiated by the Syrians to capture
the attention of the Geneva sum-
mit meeting and demonstrate to
the U.S. and Soviet Union the in-
stability of the Middle East,
political sources said here.
The sources said the Syrians
were hoping to increase the in-
volvement of the two superpowers
in the Middle East conflict. The
Middle East came up in the talks
between President Reagan and
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev
during a session in which
"regional conflicts" are on the
agenda.
An Israeli military spokesman
said the Syrian jets, identified as
up-dated versions of the Soviet-
built MIG-23 acquired by
Damascus after the Lebanon war.
attempted to interfere with Israeli
aircraft on a routine recon-
naissance flight over Lebanon.
They were downed by air-to-air
missiles and crashed inside Syria.
The Israeli planes returned safely
to their bases, the spokesman
said.
The Israel Air Force flies recon-
naissance missions over Lebanon
several times a week. When in-
formed of the action, while
visiting the Negev, Premier
Shimon Peres remarked, "well
done." He said the Air Force
showed it is fully capable of defen-
ding Israel.
Foreign Miniser Yitzhak Shamir
referred to the Geneva summit
when he said, during a tour of the
Yavne industrial zone, that Israel
would not permit the U.S. and
USSR to solve its problems, and
certainly not impose their in-
itiatives on Israel. The initiatives
must come from the countries of
the region in the course of direct
negotiations, he said.

Egypt Says Investigation
Results in Shootings Ready Soon
United Jewish Appeal cameras were on the
scene recently to record an exclusive
private interview with Israel Prime
Minster Shimon Peres by UJA president
Stanley Horowitz, left, and Alex Grass, na-
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Egypt has assured Israel
that the results of its in-
vestigation into the fatal
shooting of seven Israeli
tourists, four of them
children, at Ras Burka in
Sinai in September will be
forthcoming within the next
few days.
The Egyptian Charge d'Af-
faires in Tel Aviv, Mohammad
Basyouni, told officials that the
killer would be placed on trial. He
was described by the Egyptians at
the time as a policeman who went
berserk. Many Israelis contend he
was a soldier. The Egyptian-
Israeli peace treaty of 1979 for-
bids Egypt to station soldiers in
the part of Sinai where the
shooting occured.
ISRAELI OFFICIALS promis
ed the families of the victims that
the government would make
every effort to help them and will
continue to demand from Egypt a
detailed and comprehensive in-
vestigation into the circumstances
of the tragedy.
Autopsies by Israeli doctors in-
dicated that five of the seven vic-
tims might have lived, had their
wounds been treated on the spot.
According to Israeli eye-
witnesses, the wounded were left
unattended for four hours.
Although Egypt promised a
speedy investigation it has not
been completed more than a
month later.
Three Israelis who were at Ras
Burka at the time testified before
the Egyptian inquiry commission
two weeks ago.
Representatives of the victims'
families were invited to a meeting
of the ministerial directors
general committee which was
established to follow
developments in the case. They
will be updated at another
meeting .
IDF Mobilization
Practice Reported
TEL AVIV (JTA) The IDF
has announced a forthcoming
open mobilization practice, to take
place shortly. The IDF spokesman
said that several thousand men
and a number of private cars and
trucks which serve as reserve
transport would be mobilized for a
few hours, as a test of the efficien-
cy of the system. The advance
warning is intended to prevent
misinterpretations by the Arab
states of Israeli intentions.

Carroll ruled, in pretrial hear-
ings, that all testimony about
the defendants' religious
motivation be banned.
The defense was instructed
not to tell the jury about
political or social conditions in
Central America. (What's that
we say about trials in the
Soviet Union?)
There is a sign that is
engraved upon the conscience
of humanity.
It reads: "Never Again." It
speaks to uS from the entrance
to a German Concentration
camp. It's echo must be heard
in Central America.
It may not be effectively
heard by our lawmakers unless
we express outrage.
"Never Again" is a sacred
text. We honor the memory of
that shipload of Jews who died
when we extend mercy to Cen-
tral American refugees..

EDITOR,
The Jewish Floridian:
As we celebrate Thanksgiv-
ing Day, a truly national holi-
day, we look back to the
courageous struggles of the
Pilgrims as they were protec-
ting their families from the
harsh wilderness.
This year's Thanksgiving
holiday has a deep, solemn
meaning for me because a few
days before the holiday in
1935, we came to New York
harbor. It was a cold, dark
night when we passed by the
Statue of Liberty, and the
torch was lit, cutting through
the darkness. We and the
others had tears in our eyes.
With the joy and excitement,
my wife and I almost forgot
that the same day was our se-
cond anniversary.
On Nov. 19, 1985, we
celebrated 50 years in America
and 52 years of marriage. It
made our Thanksgiving Day
an extra special occasion.
With deep appreciation we
can say: Thank you, America,
for everything.
Sincerely,
DENNIS WILLINGER

News From BBYO
SUMMER PROGRAMS
The B'nai B'rith Youth Organization is now recruiting for its
summer programs, open to BBYO members, and to all Jewish
teens in eighth through twelfth grade.
BBYO offers a wide range of summer programs. The Interna-
tional Leadership Training Conference (ILTC) teaches BBYOers
to become strong leaders in their communities by holding
workshops on issues of Jewish concern, decision-making
seminars, and principles of democratic leadership at B'nai B'rith
Perlman Camp in Starlight, Penn.
Another excellent tool for leadership development is the
Chapter Leadership Training Conference at B'nai B'rith Beber
Camp in Mukwonago, Wise., where teens from the entire Order
learn how to effectively conduct programs and meetings. At
these two summer programs, teens develop those skills which
help determine the future leadership of the Jewish comunity.
Israel the spiritual and cultural center of Jewish life is ex-
perienced first-hand by BBYO members who participate in the
Israel Summer Institute (ISI). A six week, active hike through
our people's history, is one of BBYO's most important pro-
grams. Different tracks of ISI suit the needs of our diverse teen
population: one stresses archaeological study; another stresses
Bible study and tour; and one concentrates on Ulpan (Hebrew
language). All ISI participants get the feel for Israel from the
northernmost border at Metullah to the southern tip of the
Negev, and all spend time at the B'nai B'rith moshav, Modelet.
In addition, participants live for a while with members of Noar
Le Noar, BBYO's Israeli counterpart.
An intensive program focusing on Jewish knowledge and
culture is offered at Kallah. Here, BBYO teens learn the fun-
damentals of Judaism and experience Jewish life intensively.
They bring their new-found knowledge back into their lives,
their chapters, and eventually into their own families at a time
when assimilation threatens our future.
The summer comes to a close at the International Convention
at Perlman Camp, where members from all over the world make
policies and plan programs for the entire Order. It's a chance for
teens to experience the thrill of democracy in action!!
Call the BBYO office today for full information.
VOLUNTEERS SOUGHT
The B'nai B'rith Youth Organization is now recruiting
volunteers to serve as advisors for local high school age youth
groups.
Requirements for this rewarding assignment are really quite
simple: If you are at least 21 years old and are committed to
Judaism and to Jewish life, have a genuine liking for youth and
enjoy working with them, are willing to work under close super-
vision and participate in ongoing training, you may qualify for
the position.
Our local BBYO program currently has 19 chapters and
reaches out to almost 700 Jewish teens in the Boca Raton, West
Palm Beach, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Miami
Beach and North Miami Beach areas. The girls component is
BBG (B'nai B'rith girls) and the boys is AZA (Aleph Zadik
Aleph). Together, they are a dynamic and important part of our
Jewish community.
Youth need your support. If you are interested in becoming in-
volved in this fulfilling and vital part of our young people's lives,
please call Jerome Kiewe or William J. Rubin at the Gold Coast
Council BBYO office 581-0218 for more information and to ar-
range for an interview.

tricately related," Rabbi
Levine said. "We must at all
times, demonstrate our firm
commitment to both."
After the introduction of
Rabbi Richard Agler of Con-
gregation B'nai Israel in Boca
Raton, the rabbis entertained
questions from the press.
Asked whether there was
cause for optimism in light of
rumors indicating an imminent
breakthrough on the Soviet
Jewry problem, Rabbi Levine
said, "I'm not overly op-
timistic. We will only know for
sure when the visas are
issued. I think there is a glim-
mer of hope, but I'm not ready
to encourage our community
until we see for ourselves that
Soviet Jews are leaving in
greater numbers."
Rabbi Agler added, "Op-
timism or pessimism is not
always the issue. What is im-
portant is that we continue to
discuss the problem of
freedom for Soviet Jews and
for all those whose freedom is
denied. The cause for op-
timism is that we continue to
strive for their freedom."
Asked whether or not overt
anti-Semitism is on the decline
in the Soviet Union, Rabbi
Agler replied with an anecdote
about a Soviet official who
claimed that there is so much
freedom in the Soviet Union
that any ethnic group can be
the butt of a joke now and
then.
"When the Soviets are forc-
ed to make such ludicrous ad-
mission," Agler said, "people
become more aware of what
Rabbi Joel Levine, co-chair of the Soviet Jewry Task Force,
spoke to the press contingent, while Rabbi Richard Agler of
Congregation B'nai Israel in Boca Raton, and Mark Mendel,
a staff member of the Community Relations Council, listened
attentively.
exactly is going on over there.
Official anti-Semitism is real,
and we can't ignore it."
Both rabbis insisted that the
effort to free Soviet Jewry is
occuring on the local, national
and international level and
that the problem of human
rights in the Soviet Union is
not one-dimensional.
"There are Christians who
are also persecuted in the
Soviet Union,' Rabbi Agler
said. "When there's a greater
awareness in the community
that this is not solely a Jewish
problem then the public outcry
will increase and the Soviets
may respond, because they are
sensitive about their image."
When asked to assess the ef-
fectiveness of letter writing
campaigns to Refuseniks on
the part of American Jews,
Rabbi Levine said, "Very few
letters get through without
censorship, but we have twinn-
ing and adopt-a-family pro-
grams, and the Soviets are
very aware of these things."
Rabbi Agler added that his
recent visits with Refuseniks
proved that the mail is the
"lifeline" for these people.
"When the mail stops coming,
that means nobody cares
anymore, and that means, for
all intent and purposes, death
for a Refusenik."
In conclusion, the rabbis sug-
gested thai movement
towards peace between the
Soviet Union and the United
States is a pre-requisite for
any positive movement on the
human rights issue.
Rabbi Levine reminded the
press that the Soviet Jewry
Task Force will sponsor a com-
munity plea for Soviet Jewry
on the eve of Human Rights

shouted, "You are a liar. You
are killing your brothers."
While other members of the
workshop began to shout her
down, Hollander recalled that
her action was warmly praised
by Israeli and other Jewish
delegates to the conference.
"It is what I had to do," she
said.
At the same time, she said
the women's conference was a
wonderful experience where
she was able to have warm ex-
changes on Judaism, feminism
and other topics with a wide
range of people, including the
women representing Kenya.
She said many African women
were interested to hear her
views of Israeli society and the
role of women there. Referr-
ing to the many women who
attended the conference,
Hollander said, "We want
them to know us, to unders-
tand us and to help us
politically."

t> Encourage Moderate Arab Leaders
U.S. Jews Urged To Aid West Bank Palestinians
By JUDITH KOHN
LaSHINGTON (JTA) -
former head of Israel's civil
pinistration on the West
hk has called on American
Ljsh groups to work toward
iblishing aid programs for
|gt Bank Palestinians in
|er to encourage moderate
lers there.
peaking at the 54th
era! Assembly on the
cil of Jewish Federations
fe, Menahem Milsen, a pro-
of of Arabic literature at
Hebrew University in
Jem who headed the civil
frustration for a year after
(formed in 1981, criticiz-
|the way U.S. aid to West
Palestinians has been
iirsed.
He said that the Private
V untary Organizations
(PVO s), which are funded
largely by the U.S. Agency for
International Development,
have served to foster an
already present radicalism
among the "mainstream"
Palestinian population.
The targets of U.S. aid,
Milsen maintained, have been
those people perceived to
represent "conventional
views." But it is precisely the
conventional position that
needs to be discouraged, he
said.
"What does it mean to
represent the conventional
views? It means American aid
going to people who are oppos-
Begin Believed To Have
Alzheimer's Disease
ed to peace with Israel. It's a
travesty, but it's also a reali-
ty," Milsen maintained.
To help foster what he said
was currently a minority posi-
tion among West Bank Palesti-
nians, Milsen suggested that
American Jewish groups
might help initiate their own
form of PVOs on the West
Bank that would work through
moderate Arab leaders. If
Arab radicalism is permitted
to grow unchecked, he said, so
too, would the "dangerous
phenomenon" of the ultra-
nationalist Gush Emunim and
Kach leader Rabbi Meit
Kahane whose "obnoxious"
fundamentalism thrives on the
continued intransigence of the
Palestinian leadership.
Those moderate Arab
leaders, he said, "are not ex-
actly the same guys who were
the prospective beneficiaries
of the State Department's
help, because 1 think that the
principle of selection was
wrong." He was referring
specifically to U.S. aid aimed
at improving "the quality of
life" for the West Bank Arabs.
While the PVOs "work
strengthening groups devoted
to non-recognition of Israel,"
Milsen suggested, "a different
type of Private Voluntary
American organization should
launch a campaign to en-
courage Palestinian groups
dedicated to the idea of
negotiations with Israel and a
political settlement between
the Palestinians and the
sovereign state of Israel."
Israeli officials have long
been critical of the PVOs,
which they perceive as highly
politicized in favor of the
radical Palestinian na-
tionalists, and have suggested
that U.S. aid money for the
West Bank should be channel-
ed through the Israeli
government.
The type of moderate leader-
ship that needs to emerge,
Milsen said, can no longer be
fostered through the Arab
"village leagues." Formed in
the late 1970s, those leagues
failed to win any kind of
credibility among the Arab
population of the West Bank,
and even the U.S. Administra-
tion has refused to recognize
them or to deal with their
representatives.
Milsen, who left his post in
1982 after the Israeli govern-
ment initially refused to
establish an inquiry commis-
sion following the massacre of
Palestinians by Christian
militiamen at the Sabra and
Shatila refugee camps in
Beirut, had been at odds with
members of the government
over the handling of the village
leagues.
\MAURICE SAMUELSON
LONDON (JTA) -
rmer Israeli Prime
lister, Menachem Begin,
has been living as a
iuse since his abrupt retire-
|mt two years ago, is believ-
to be suffering from
kheimer's disease.
he suggestion that Begin is
ffering from it, current
fiong responsible medical
ties, provides the first credi-
i explanation of why Israel's
Brismatic leader, who revell-
J in politics, suddenly and ir-
locably withdrew from 1rt'
prld at the age of 70.
fntil now his family and his
Nest medical and political
Jvisers have kept the precise
Iture of his condition a deep
pret, fostering speculation
fit he retired in a mixture of
Bpair over the costly Israeli
ervention in Lebanon and
death of his beloved wife
lizain 1982.
His resignation, which caus-
, consternation among his
pporters, also sparked pro-
ved speculation that this
ps only a strategic
fndrawal, like that staged in
early 1950's by David Ben-
fnon, and that he might sud-
Jnly make a dramatic com-
FCK. It was also rumored for
pme that he was engaged in
rting a modern history of
f Jewish people.
in retrospect, these
potheses must now be
parded as incompatible with
illness which doctors say is
|sociated with diffuse
enration of the brain.
Recently, Begin made one of
s very rare public ap-
krances in Jerusalem when
attended a memorial ser-
at his wife's graveside.
losely hemmed in by his
jjldren, he looked a frail, ag-
' broken man.

In The Chanukah Spirit
Israel Bonds Announces
Operation Maccabee '85
Chanukah is a reminder of
the Jewish emphasis on
freedom, an occasion to
remember the tyrant from
whom the Jews wrested their
freedom over two millenia ago.
The Syrian despot Antiochus
Ephipanes, seeking to root out
the Jewish faith and spirit,
triggered a national uprising
whose triumphant victory
under the Maccabees in the se-
cond century BCE is com-
memorated to this day in the
glowing festival of Chanukah.
As the Feast of Lights ap-
proaches, foes once again pose
a modern day threat to Jewish
survival. Once more, they will
face an indomitable Jewish will
to survive in freedom.
That determination is
reflected in the appropriately
named "Operation Maccabee
'85" to be conducted by the
Israel Bond Organization dur-
ing Chanukah week. Its goal is
to he'.p strengthen Israel's in-
frastructure in this period of
economic difficulties.
The Israel Bond Organiza-
tion can be proud of its record
in helping Israel to achieve the
infrastructure requisite to
statehood and economic
growth. It is doing so as Israel
grapples with economic pro-
blems that flow in no small
measure from the need to
spend a third of its national
budget on defense.
The government of Israel
has dispatched the top
business leaders, Israel
Defense Force officers, and
members of Government to
tell the modern day story.
Community leaders will be
visited by Arieh Fink, director
of Department of Rehabilita-
tion of Israel's Ministry of
Defense.
Israel's security is bolstered
by the roads, harbors and air-
ports; by the high technology
industries, communications
and energy development
created with the help of Israel
Bond dollars.
"Operation Maccabee '85" is
worthy of support as
Chanukah reaffirms an ancient
commitment to freedom.

tion into Israeli society would
have been much more difficult.
Many newly arrived Ethio-
pians are being absorbed into
Project Renewal areas, where
exceptionally successful social
programming for all ages has
already been established."
Lampert insisted, however,
that challenges remain."It is
imperative to raise the funds
to continue paying for absorp-
tion and youth aliyah pro-
grams. It is a critical goal for
us to raise the balance of our
Project Renewal commitment
in order to finish the building,
and more importantly, the pro-
gramming, without which the
edifices are mere shells."
"Project Renewal is the best
investment we make,"
Lampert continued, "because
100 percent of the money rais-
ed is sent overseas."
On the other hand, Lampert
recognized the pressing needs
of the local Jewish community.
"Here at home we still face the
challenges of building a strong
and viable Jewish community
for all segments of our popula-
tion," Lampert said.
'We must provide quality
Jewish education for our
youth, more services for our
elderly, more day care for
working parents and increased
counseling opportunities for
everyone," he added.
Lampert concluded by call-
ing on the entire community to
commit itself to improving the
quality of Jewish life
everywhere: "I look forward,"
he said, "to total community-
wide support for this year's
campaign through involve-
ment as well as increased

achievements of the Zionist

improved Business Class.

hanging clothes their own space. You also have a |
separate baggage check-in. And you pick up
your bags first, so you'll spend less time in the
airport and more enjoying Israel. ^i^^^^hmmm^^
