Local And Overseas Missions:
A Self-Imposed Duty
One of the various dic-
tionary definitions of the word
"mission" is "a self-imposed
duty." Community leaders
who have attended either
overseas missions, sponsored
by the regional or National
United Jewish Appeal, or local
mini-missions, sponsored by
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, agree that
those sincerely interested in
strengthening Jewish com-
munities around the world are
virtually obliged to participate
in these important projects.
Whether you are traveling to
Eastern Europe, Israel or
around the corner to the four
agencies supported by our
local Federation, the goal of a
mission is essentially the same:
to see how and where money
contributed to the Federa-
tion/United Jewish Appeal is
All those who have ex-
perienced missions to Israel or
to Jewish communities in
other countries return with a
renewed commitment to
uniting: and supporting the
world-wide Jewish
As the missions calendar
(to the right) indicates,
overseas itineraries vary ac-
cording to the interests of par-
ticipants. Study missions ap-
peal to those with goals of lear-
ning about Israel from an ex-
periential and academic view-
point. Singles, family and con-
do missions provide the oppor-
tunity to meet others from
around the country or region
who share similar interests or
lifestyles. Nevertheless, any
mission to Israel allows par-
ticipants to see the land and
the people in a way that
transcends tourism. The in-
volvement becomes physical,
spiritual and emotional. Fur-
thermore, the different mis-
sions make it possible for in-
terested and dedicated par-
ticipants to go on several mis-
sions and receive new and uni-
que perspectives and ex-
periences each time.
Margot Brozost, who attend-
ed a family mission in August
with her husband Michael, son
Marshall and daughter
Meredith, said "Through UJA

JCC Building Plans Spur
Capital Campaign Drive
With the launching of the
community drive for a new
Jewish Community Center of
the Palm Beaches, officials of
the JCC have prepared and are
distributing descriptive
brochures which illustrate and
detail final site and building
plans for the proposed full-
service facility.
The brochures are proving
most helpful to campaign
leaders and workers as they
contact prospective con-
tributors and respond to in-
quiries and questions. In
response to those asking
'Why a new JCC?. the
brochures note that the cur-
rent planning is the result of a
comprehensive study jointly
conducted by the JCC and the
Jewish Federation. That study
dramatically supported the
need for expanded facilities
and concluded, "If there ever
was a community that needed
or could benefit from a ful-
service Jewish Community
Center, that community is the
Palm Beaches."
Campaign leaders and
workers report that release of
the site and building plans has
created a surge of interest in
all aspects of the plans and the
scope of services and pro-
grams anticipated. Many peo-
ple are asking what is in store
for the thousands from tot
to senior adult who will be
able to be served in the enlarg-
ed JCC setting.
Planners of the new JCC are
assured that the location and
layout of buildings and
grounds have been designed to
meet many of the recreational,
social, cultural, educational
and health needs not being met
by the present JCC and other
community services.
The Site
The new JCC will be built on
a 33-acre site located on
Military Trail at 12th St., one
mile north of Okeechobee
Blvd. in West Palm Beach. The
site plan includes two main
buildings connected by arcade
walkways and areas for all out-
door activities including tennis
courts, ball fields, lakes, plaza?
and swimming pool.

to a main lobby leading to

A Powerful Voice Will Set Them Free
Plea For Soviet Jewry Set For December 9
Citizens concerned about
human rights violations in the
Soviet Union and the plight of
Soviet Jewish prisoners of con-
science and refuseniks will
gather enmasse at Temple
Beth El in West Palm Beach
on Monday, Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m.
for a community plea on behalf
of Soviet Jewry. The communi-
ty plea is sponsored by the
Soviet Jewry Task Force of
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County and co-
convened by local chapters of
Hadassah and Women's
American ORT.
"We intend to express our
solidarity with all those in the
Soviet Union whose religious
freedom and freedom to
emigrate is being denied," said
Terri Rapaport, chairperson of
the Soviet Jewry Task Force.
"We must continue to
demonstrate our firm commit-

ment to Soviet Jewry on the
local level as well as the na-
tional and international level,"
added Rabbi Joel Levine, co-
chair of the task force.
"Meetings such as this do have

Israel Sends Interim

Report On Spy Probe
Israel was reported recently to
have sent the State Depart-
ment an interim report of its
investigation of allegations
that Jonathan Pollard, a U.S.
Navy counterintelligence
analyst arrested by the FBI in
Washington, was spying for
The Foreign Ministry an-
nounced last week that it has
launched a thorough probe in-
to the affair and would keep
the U.S. informed.
The American Administra-
tion is publicly playing down
the importance of the incident.
The State Department's depu-
ty spokesman. Charles Red-
man, said recently that the
U.S. welcomed the pro-
mptness with which Israel
launched its investigation, ex-
pressed confidence it would be
conducted expeditiously and
accepted without question that
Israeli policy is not to spy on
the U.S.
But political sources in
Jerusalem were quoted as ex-
pressing indignation over the
tone and extent of U.S.
demands on Israel in connec-
tion with the spy case. They
said the Americans are deman-
ding the return of documents.
a full explanation and the right
to question Israeli diplomats in
Washington, several of whom
reportedly have been recalled.
According to the sources,
these demands were un-
precedented. Their reaction
was the first public indication
here that the U.S has made
any specific demands on
Israel. Premier Shimon Peres
refused to be drawn into the
issue. "We do not interfere
with American legal pro-
cedures inside the U.S. ami in-
side Israel we act in accor-
dance with Israeli law," he
said in a television interview.
Israel's top leadership has
avowed they knew nothing
whatever of Pollard or his
alleged activities and said they
learned of it with "shock and
consternation." Israel Radio
said last week that an official
at the Israel Embassy in
Washington will be recalled at
the request of the State
He was pin-pointed as the of-
ficial contacted by Pollard who
was reportedly seeking asylum
at the Embassy when he was
picked up by FBI agents near-
by on Thursday,Nov. 21. The
Embassy official was not iden-
tified by name. But the Israel
media has named Raphael
(Rafi) Eitan, a former Mossad
(secret service) operative who
served former Premiers
Menachem Begin and Yitzhak
Shamir as an adviser on ter-
rorism, as the Israeli official
who recruited Pollard and
operated him. Begin was
quoted in Maariv as stating,
through his personal aide,
Yechiel Kadishai, that he
never heard of Pollard before
he read the newspaper reports
of his arrest last week.
The Jerusalem Post said that
Eitan spent most of his profes-
sional life in the secret service.
Reputedly, he was the man
who assaulted and kidnapped
Nazi war criminal Adolf
Eichmann near his home in a
Buenos Aires suburb in 1960.
Eventually, Eitan headed the
Mossad, Israel's senior secret
intelligence service.
He remained with Mossad
until the Middle 1960's when
Ariel Sharon briefly served
then Premier Yitzhak Rabin as
adviser on security measures.
Sharon co-opted Eitan as his
assistant, the Post account
said. After that. Eitan went in-
to private business and became
a member of the Central Com-
mittee of Begin's Herut Party.
He returned to security mat-
ters when Likud came to
power in the 1977 Knesset
elections. Begin appointed him
adviser on terrorism in July,
1978, replacing Amitai Paglin
who was killed in a car acci-
dent. Eitan worked out of the
Prime Minister's Office.
According to The Jerusalem
Post. Begin did not concern
himself directly with anti-
terrorist activities. He gave
his adviser much leeway and
Eitan's status received a fur-
ther boost, the Post said, when
Sharon became Defense
Minister in 1981. The Post
noted that Eitan created con-
troversy when he stated on
Israel Radio that Israel would
have to live with terrorism for
the next 100 years.
When Shimon Peres became
Prmier in the Labor-Likud uni-
ty coalition government he
replaced Eitan with Laborite
Amiran Nir. But Eitan was
allowed to remain in the Prime
Minister's Office in an
unspecified capacity.
Israel Radio said that the
Embassy official facing recall
from Washington was ap-
parently traced to Pollard
through taps, either on
Pollard's telephone or an Em-
bassy phone. He will return
home only after the spy case
opens in federal court, and
after the U.S. authorities have
questioned him with Israel's
consent about what he
knows of the case.
Chanukah Prayer
We think of the light that burns dimly for our brethren in the
Soviet Union. May we, in remembering them, strengthen their
resolve to live. May they go from lesser light to greater light, even
as we add candles to our Menorah. "Am Yisrael Chai."
The people Israel will live.
silenced," Levine added.
The guest speaker at the
community plea will be Donald
E. Lefton, national vice chair-
man of the National Con-
ference of Soviet Jewry.
Mr. Lefton's impressive
leadership roles in Jewish af-
fairs include positions as vice-
president of the Greater Miami
Jewish Federation and na-
tional vice chairman of the Na-
tional Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council.
Lefton has also served on the
executive committee of the
American Israeli Public Af-
fairs Committee (AIPAC) and
on the public relations commit-
tee of the Council of Jewish
Lefton's credentials include
membership on the boards of
Temple Beth Sholom in Miami
Beach and the Miami Jewish
Family and Children's Service.
The community plea will also
feature music and song led by
Julian Stein, an accomplished
composer-arranger and con-
ductor, whose education at
Yale, Columbia and the Paris
Conservatory and whose years
of experience conducting and
composing Broadway and off-
Broadway musicals, will add
an exhilarating dimension to
the unified call for freedom.
The Soviet Jewry Task
Force reminds the entire com-
munity: The larger the tur-
nout, the louder the voice. A
powerful voice will indeed set
them free.

Jewry or on the activities of

Klinghoffers Are Suing The PLO
NEW YORK (JTA) A $1.5 billion suit was filed against the
Palestine Liberation Organization in State Supreme Court here
this week by the family of Leon Klinghoffer, the elderly
American Jew murdered by the Palestinian hijackers of the
Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro off Egyptian waters last month.
The suit accuses the PLO of "wanton and coldblooded muder
and asks for $100 million on each of 15 separate> county

the hijackers and his body thrown overboard. The Klinghoffer
family is also suing the owners of the Achille Lauro Chandns of
Italv Inc the port of Genoa from where the hijackers boarded
the ship, and CUlb ABC Tours, Inc. The charges are negligence
and failure to adequately insure the safety of Klinghoffer and his
wife Marilyn.

Incredible Embaltassment-
May Yet Be Unfounded
On its face, the incredible embarrassment
to Israel, if indeed it is an embarrassment,
should be perfectly understandable. The
Israelis say they knew absolutely nothing
about Jonathan Pollard's espionage ac-
tivities in their behalf, the man whom the
United States is now holding on charges
that he spied against it for the government
of Israel.
There certainly is precedent, however hor-
rifying the prospect, that one arm of a
government doesn't know what the other is
doing especially when secret and even il-
legal activities are concerned.
Witness the recent French attack on the
Green Peace ship in the South Pacific, which
left the Mitterrand government as embar-
rassed as the Israelis say they are today. Or
consider Lyndon Johnson's covert escala-
tion of the U.S. involvement in Vietnam,
LBJ's "secret war" about which members of
Congress swear they knew absolutely
Then there is the case of President
Reagan who can be readily believed when he
said that he was entirely ignorant of the
phenomenal cost overruns at the Pentagon
in such strategic items as screws that can be
purchased for pennies at any hardware
store. Or toilet seats and even ashtrays.
Investigation Welcomed
As much as it may tax our credulity, it
should not be hard to accept the astonished
reactions of Prime Minister Shimon Peres
and even Deputy Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir to the arrest of Pollard last week
after he tried unsuccessfully to seek sanc-
tuary in the Israeli Embassy in Washington.
But whatever the ultimate official ex-
planation, we welcome the Israeli govern-
ment's decision to launch an immediate in-
vestigation into the matter. At a time when
the United States is essentially the only
reliable ally of Israel in the world today, it
seems to be the height of absurdity that the
Israelis should be involved in espionage
against it.
The more so that a tacit agreement exists
between both governments that neither
should engage in such activities. Secretary
of State Shultz has since remarked that he
felt "insulted" by the discovery. After all,
didn't the United States share a good deal of
its tactical intelligence with the Israelis in
the first place?
We agree with the exception that Mr.
Shultz's "insult" should not really leave him
feeling quite that sanctimonious. After all,
haven t the Israelis done a good bit of shar-
ing of their own intelligence with the United
States too?
Still, this is no excuse, merely an attempt
to be more level-headed and frank about a
difficult situation. A careful investigation,
as only the Israelis can launch one, should
clear the matter up between these two allies
at the cost only of those responsible for the
espionage who must be held accountable and
called to pay it.
The Public Was Heard
More than S00 concerned members of the local community attended, a public
hearing at the Salvation Army Citadel in West Palm Beach on Friday, Nov. 29, to
voice their support for proposed expansion infactiitws and services by the Joseph
L. Morse Geriatric Center.
If the certificate of need is approved by the State Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services, the Center will be allowed to increase the number of Umg-
term beds by 160 and to establish an Adult Day Care Center. The planned expan-
sion also includes the addition of a 20-30 bed short-term rehabilitative unit and
the creation of a Home Health Agency.
Speakers who voiceTTtheir support of the Morse Geriatric
Center expansion included (front row) Sister Joseph Mary, [
executive director of the Noreen McKeen Residence; State
Representative Eleanor Weinstock; E. Drew Gackenheimer,
executive director of the Morse Geriatric Center; and (back
row) Erwin H. Blonder, president of the Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County; and Bennet Herman, president of the
Joseph L. Morse Geriatric Center. Seated to Mr. Blunder's
right is Robert List, board member of the Morse Geriatric
Bettie Steinberg, whose
ister is on the long waiting
list for admission to the
Center, recounted the hard-
ships her family has ex-
perienced and expressed
hope that the facility will
soon be enlarged.
Tom Sheehan, legal counsel for the Morse Geriatric Center,
explained the site plan for the Center's future expansion.
Anita Anton, president of the
Center's Resident Council.
spoke passionately on behalf
of all the Center's residents.

The first gala event for the
Morse Geriatric Center is a
sell-out! Community response
has been immediate and abun-
dant. A maximum three-
hundred guests have made
reservations for the event
scheduled Dec. 8 at the Poin-
ciana Club, Palm Beach.
"We know there will be
many disappointed people in
the Community. However, we
plan other activities
throughout the season to
benefit the Center and hope
the response and support will
be as forthcoming for these
future events," stated Eleanor
Fleischman, chairperson for
the Morse Geriatric gala.
During the evening a special
presentation will be made to

immediate past president of

More Than Ever
Chanukah Spirit Will Prevail
At Homes For The Elderly
Many hundreds of Chanukah
candles will be lit this year in
residences for the elderly in
Palm Beach County. The pro-
liferation of skilled nursing
beds and the growth of the
Jewish presence in geriatric
homes are important factors
contributing to the blaze of
lights. And, increasingly,
home administrators look to
the Jewish Federation
Chaplain Aide program, under
the direction of Rabbi Alan R.
Sherman, for the implementa-
tion of their Chanukah
Chanukah parties, many
replete with entertainment by
children as well as adults, holi-
day foods, such as latkes and
doughnuts, punch or even
wine, will be held in most of
the homes. The story of
Chanukah will be told and ex-
plained as the lights are lit,
with appropriate blessings by
volunteer Chaplain Aides or
persons residing in the homes.
In a very real sense, the spirit
of Chaukah will prevail.
In contrast, it wasn't very
long ago that the attending
personnel in homes, populated
primarily by non-Jewish
residents, knew so little of the
holiday that the "cha" in
Chanukah was pronounced as

The North Building is plann-
ed for large scale active pro-
gramming and features the
Cultural Arts Center and a 600
seat Auditorium and as well
houses the Gymnasium,

Kosher Kitchen will be capable
of providing and preparing
meals for all JCC activities and
catering of outside events. A
Youth Lounge and Game
Room will serve as a "drop-in-

munity's young people.
Dedication Opportunities
Of special interest to cam-
paign leaders, workers and
prospective contributors is the
listing and identification of
units available as dedications
for tributes or memorials.
Copies of the brochures may
be obtained by calling the JCC
Campaign Office at 832-2120.
The JCC Capital Fund Cam-
paign is headed by a group of
eight community leaders serv-
ing as co-chairpersons. They
are Jonas Barenholtz, Murray
H. Goodman, Alexander
Gruber, H. Irwin Levy, Jeanne
Levy, Gilbert Messing, Myron
J. Nickman and Robert D.
Rapaport. Zelda Pincourt, JCC
president, and Erwin H.

president, are serving the

The goal of mini-missions, as
with overseas missions, is to
acquaint people with the
beneficial local programs made
possible by their contributions
to Federation campaigns.
"I equate a mini-mission
with a mission to Israel," said
Marilyn Lampert, mini-
missions chairperson for the
Jewish Federation of Palm

programs locally as it does in
Israel, and the need for new
facilities and programs here is
as great as the need in Israel,"

four beneficiary agencies fund-
ed by the Jewish Federation of

with its wide range of pro-
grams for people of all ages;
The Jewish Community Day
School, where children receive
the highest quality religious
and secular education, in-
cluding computer instruction;
The Jewish Family and

highly-trained and caring staff
counsels individuals and
groups dealing with a wide
range of problems and pro-

top-notch on all levels," said
Mrs. Lampert. "I feel strongly
that a mini-mission is probably
the most important thing local
citizens can participate in to

tions," she added.
Two mini-mission are
already planned for coming

First You Take A PotatoV
What Would Chanukah Be Without Latkes?
In the midst of the
December barrage of
Christmas materials, Jewish
families often search for ways
to maintain the significance of
Chanukah for children.
Chanukah begins this year on
Dec. 7, and many believe there
is no better way to celebrate
the holiday than with a table
laden with latkes, a form of
pancakes, the traditional holi-
day fare.
The following are recipes for
latkas from throughout the
world, reflecting the history of
the Jews and the varied lands
in which they settled. These
recipes can be easily prepared
by children with a bit of help
from their parents.
The recipes were taken from
"Hannukah: A Learning Kit,"
published in Israel by
Everyman's University.
2 cups flour
Pinch of salt
2 eggs
3 tbsps. sugar
(Confectioner's if desired)
1 tbsp. rum or sherry
Oil for deep frying
Confectioner's sugar
for dusting
Sift flour and salt together
into a mixing bowl and make a
well in the center. Drop eggs
and sugar into the well and
begin stirring until most of the
dry ingredients have been ab-
sorbed. Then add rum or
sherry. Blend well. Remove
ball of dough to a floured
kneading board and knead for
3-5 minutes. Let stand on
board, covered with a towel, at
least an hour at room
temperature. Divide the dough
and roll into rectangles '/4-inch
thick or less. Dough not rolled
should be kept covered with
towel until used.
Fold the layer of rolled-out
dough into thirds and roll
again until about one-eighth
thick and four inches wide. Cut
into 5-inch strips not more
than a half-inch wide; twist
each into looped bows. Drop
bows into the hot oil and fry

Light Up A Candle
Candles have been used for
hundreds of years, and have
played an important role in
society, especially in Judaism.
Have you ever wondered
who invented candles?
Their origin is unknown, but
the first candle, a taper, made
by saturating the pithy core of
reeds of rushes with molten
fat, was "used by ancient
Later, a fiber wick was dip-
ped in molten tallow.
Beeswax was used next,
thus eliminating the odor
characteristic of burned fats.
Out of the above came the
candles of today, made by
pouring molten wax or tallow
into molds containing wicks.
The first candle-molding
machine was invented by-
Joseph Morgan in 1834. To-
day, machines turn out 20-30
candles a minute, some quick
burning, some slow burning.
There is something about
candles that bring out positive
emotions, whether they be
nostalgia, joy, love for humani-
ty, or hopes for the future. As
the match touches the wick,
and the flow fills the room.
that tiny little light seems to
bring with it a feeling of
serenity and that all is right
with the world. When the
woman of the house (or the
man, if there is not a woman in
the home) covers her head,
spreads her hands over the
flame, and recites the blessing
to welcome the Shabbath
Bride, a feeling of peace set-
tles over the family.
Candlelighting symbolizes the
culmination of the six days of
creation into the seventh day
of rest. The waving of the
hands around the candles and
the covering of the eyes draws
warmth and light inside
Since the Sabbath is such a
holy day. there is reluctance to
let it go without some obser-
vance. This separation, from
the Sabbath to the weekday, is
celebrated with the Havdalah
service by using a candle with
two wicks, a cup of wine, and a
spice box. Flowers may also be
used in lieu of the latter. The
light of the candle symbolizes
the divine of man. The spices
symbolize the spiritual riches
of Shabbat. The forthcoming
week is therefore entered into
with peace a "shabbasdik"

For A
Happy Chanukah

Chanukah Greetings
Alan and Thaila Cohen
Florida's Financial Leader
Happy children, lit menorahs, and spinning dreidels are just a few of the pleasant im-
ages of Chanukah.
week. This service is perform-
ed on Saturday night after
Chanukah candles, too, are
to commemorate a happy holi-
day, the rededication of the
Temple in Jerusalem, after the
victories of the Maccabees
against the Syrians who had
profaned the Temple. When
the Jews reentered the Tem-
ple, only a small jar of oil was
found to be unprofaned. The
oil was placed in the golden
candlestick in the sanctuary,
and was enough for only one
day, but it lasted eight.
Although the Jews do not
believe in miracles, the fact
that the bit of oil did not burn
out in one day was a miracle.
For this reason, we light
candles for eight days, and we
refer to Chanukah as the Feast
of Lights.
On Friday nights, the
Chanukah lights are kindled
before the Sabbath candles. On
Saturday night, the Chanukah
lights are kindled before Hav-
dalah in the synagogue, but at
home Havdalah is said first,
both after sundown.
According to the Jewish en-
cyclopedia, the custom of
lighting a Yahrzeit candle was
probably suggested by the
Catholic custom of burning
candles to the saints. "Man is
composed of four fundamental
elements Fire, Wind, Earth,
Water and Fire is at the
head of the others." (Ketubbot
23). The light was interpreted
as symbolizing the soul of the
The candles that are used for
the Sabbath and Chanukah are
fast burning and are made of
paraffin wax. Yahrzeit candles
are made of hard, slow-
burning waxes, made to last at
least 24 hours. The shiva can-
dle, however, one foot tall, is
made to last the seven days of
sitting shiva.
Although candles have other
uses, on birthday cakes, for
romance, for decoration, their
use for religious reasons have
the most significance.
Chanukah candles represent
freedom. So, when you light up
the menorah and sing that
famous Chaukah song "Rock
of Ages," the message and
hope is "... that the time is
nearing which will see all men
free, tyrants disappearing."

Chanukah: Protecting The Rights
Of Religious Minorities
Chaplain Jewish Federation
Of Palm Beach County
It should come as no sur-
prise that more people have
been murdered in the world
for not accepting someone
else's religion than for any
other reason. Religious ma-
jorities, in almost every coun-
try, have sought to impose
their theology upon the
religious minorities through
whatever means possible.
In the days of the Greek in-
fluence in file world this was
most evident.
Following the death of Alex-
ander the Great in 323 BC,
Palestine, which was absorbed
in the Greek Empire, became
the center of a dispute bet-
ween two newly created
monarchies; that of Ptolemy of
Egypt, and of Seleucid of
By the time Antiochus IV, a
Seleucid, assumed power over
Judea, Hellenism, of Greek
social influence was already on
the rise. Jewish citizens who
considered themselves modern
had begun to adopt Hellenistic
culture and were assimilated
from their Jewish traditions.
Other Jews, seeking to main-
tain their age old traditions,
looked with disdain upon their
assimilated brethren. The con-
flicts which arose between the
Hellenists and Anti-Hellenists
l>ecame very unsteeling to An-
tiochus, who was under
pressure from Rome and
Ptolemy of Egypt.
Fearing a separation of his
empire, Antiochus took drastic
measures to unify his empire
into a peaceful and cohesive
unit. He proclaimed a unifying
Creek faith to which all sub-
jects were to adhere All sub-
jects were commanded to wor-
ship Zeus.
This policy gave Jews and all
others the opportunity to
become equals. The
Hellenizers were overjoyed-

own tree will. Antiochus then
established the death penalty
as punishment for observing
the Torah and Jewish
At this time a small group of
Jews called the Maccabees
arose to preserve their faith by
waging guerrilla warfare on
Hellenized Jews and upon the
Syrian-Greek army. They suc-
ceeded in conquering
Jerusalem and restoring the
temple service.
Chanukah has .become an
everlasting symbol of the pro-
tection of the rights and

We have much to learn from
the festival of Chanukah in our
discussion about religious in-
fluence in government and the
separation of church and state.

learned is the obligation of

Had there been a public
school of the Roman Empire at
the beginning of the Christian
era, the children of Christians
would have been required to
pray to Caesar.
It took three centuries for
Christians to win the right to
practice their minority religion
without acknowledging the
divinity of Caesar. Yet. within
only a century, ironically, the
official Christian Church

minority beginnings? Or a
perception of their minority
status in many parts of the
world today?

Donald Shriver Jr., presi-

Seminary, describes the pro-
blem perceptively; "We were
mostly Protestants in my
public school, but Jews were
there, and we always knew
that prayer 'in Jesus' name'
was as important to Christians
as it was objectionable to
Jews. That is why, with mixed
feelings, we Christians
sometimes omitted the phrase
from our prayers. What we
lost in the integrity of ritual
we gained in consideration for
a minority."
We are now in a period in
America where great insen-
sitivities are being shown to
religious minorities. Efforts to
bring religion into our public
life are intensifying, as are the
efforts of some to identify the
United States as a Christian

The United States Supreme
Court recently ruled that the
display of a city-owned and
sponsored creche was not pro-
hibited by the Constitution.
Justice Brennan speaking of
the impact of the creche on
non-Christians, stated, "To be
excluded on religious grounds
by one's elected government is
an insult and an injury that,
until today, could not be
countenanced by the establish-
ment clause."
The growth of democracy in
the United States is in large
measure a product of that uni-
que principle in our basic law
that puts religion outside the
jurisdiction of the State. Any
impairment of that principle
threatens religious liberty and
brings other basic freedoms in-
to jeopardy.
The festival of Chanukah
demands that the relationship
between man and God should
not be subject to government
control or regulation.

Dershoicitz Warns
Against Radical Left And Christian Right
Harvard Law School professor
Alan Dershowitz warned here
that the greatest danger fac-
ing the Jewish community to-
day is found in the extreme
movements of the radical left
and the Christian right.
"Although they are all rooted
in the same primitive strain,
unless we recognize their key
differences, we will fail to app-
ly the proper specific remedies
to counter each one," Der-
showitz declared.
Dershowitz addressed some
500 persons gathered at the
Young Israel of Boro Park,
less Man one block from the
shopping district where 13
Jewish-owned stores were
vandalized two weeks earlier.
He described the Boro Park
vandalism as "the disturbing,
but not very threatening act of
fringe characters who enjoy
widespread support in our
Instead, Dershowitz, a
native of Boro Park who at-
tended the Young Israel
synagogue there as a youth,
expressed great alarm at "the
newest strain of anti-Semitism
which calls itself 'anti-
Prof. Alan Dershowitz
Zionism,' but which employs
all of the classic anti-Semitic
blood libels, and which is being
promoted by an insidious coali-
tion of the extreme right and
the extreme left."
Declaring that "Jewish
human rights deserves a much
higher place on the liberal
agenda than they currently en-
joy, especially among other
Jews," Dershowitz proceeded
Activist Recounts Harsh
Treatment In Geneva
Steven Feuerstein, a 23-year-
old New Yorker, told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that he and four other activists
for Soviet Jewry were treated
harshly by Swiss police who ar-
rested them on Nov. 19, dur-
ing the Reagan-Gorbachev
summit meeting in Geneva,
after they staged a peaceful
sit-in at the local office of
Aeroflot, the Soviet airline.
Feuerstein, who is national
director of the Student Zionist
Council of the United States,
said he and his companions
were held in solitary confine-
ment for much of their 48
hours in custody.
They were also placed in
cells with hardened criminals,
subjected to strip searches and
other indignities, handcuffed
and forced to go without food
for 20-24 hours because no
kosher food was provided at
the Champs Dollon prison
where they spent their first
'lay in custody.
U.S. Consulate Did Not Help
Feuerstein said that
although he and two of the
other activists are Americans,
the U.S. Consulate in Geneva
made no attempt to contact
them or send a representative
to visit them while they were
in police custody, normally a
routine practice when U.S. na-
tionals are arrested abroad.
He said a formal protest would
be lodged with the State
Department in Washington.
Feuerstein said his personal
suspicion is that they were ig-
nored by the U.S. Consulate
because of pressure from the
Russians. He noted that the
Canadian and Israeli Con-
sulates in Geneva each sent of-
ficials to try to see Ronen and
Mendelevich, respectively
though they were turned away
by the police.
Feuerstein told the JTA that
he went to Geneva at the in-
vitation of the North American
Jewish Student Network to
participate in demonstrations
for Soviet Jews with about 800
other students from the U.S.,
Israel and about a half dozen
West European countries. He

gnrwnf i mimiTiiTi nr>
to criticize a recently published
book on the current status of
the Jewish community for tell-
ing "only the better half of the
story, and failing to tell the
disturbing half."
For example, he cited recent
anti-Jewish "academic" con-
ferences at Harvard Universi-
ty at which he said only
enemies of Israel are invited to
speak. Dershowitz was referr-
ing to Charles Silberman's
book, "A Certain People."
Dershowitz warned against
the "two-step process of Chris-
tianization of the United
States" as "an insidious threat
to the rights of Jews and other
religious minorities in this
country." He noted that the
spread of "Christian prayer
groups" in government circles
has eliminated some Jews
from the policy debates and
decision making processes
which go on at those meetings.
"The seductive first steps,
which might seem desirable
even to some revered rabbinic
leaders in the Jewish com-
munity such as aid to parochial
schools and the re-institution
of prayer in the public schools,
will hasten the day when
Jewish and other minority
students will be subjected to
tremendous social pressures to
abandon their faiths," he
"Eventually, this could even
lead to the establishment of of-
ficial state religions, thus
relegating the Jews of the
United States to official se-
cond class status tolerated but
no longer accepted on an equal
footing," he said. The address
was part of a year-long com-
munity education series spon-
sored by the National Council
of Young Israel.

He has delegated two

In August 1984, I made my
first visit to Brazil guided by
my seasoned colleague, Jacobo
Kovadloff of Buenos Aires,
director AJC's South
American Affairs office. I was
then deeply impressed by how
well organized the 160,000
Jews of Brazil were, especially
in Sao Paulo and Rio de
Janeiro. But I was, frankly,
distressed over how insular
Brazilian Jewry was.
In this overwhelmingly
Catholic country in which the
Brazilian hierarchy played
such a potent political and
social role, I found that only
three or four rabbis had any
ongoing contact with key
Catholic officials Rabbis
Henry Sobel and Fritz Pinkuss
in Sao Paulo, and Rabbi Rober-
to Graetz in Rio de Janeiro. A
few prominent lay people, such
as Israel Klabin and Adolfo
Bloch in Rio, and Leon Feffer
in Sao Paulo, also related to
Catholic authorities on a social
and cultural level.
But few of the organized
Jewish communal structures
had any continuous, mean-
ingful relationship with the
powerful Brazilian hierarchy.
That failure, in my judgement,
was compounded by the fact
that Brazil has a rapidly grow-
ing Arab population of some 5
million, and that Brazil is one
of the largest arms merchants
to Saudi Arabia, Libya, and
Last April, the PLO held a
continent-wide rally in Sao
Paulo and disgorged itself of a
spate of vicious anti-Jewish
and anti-Israel hate literature
and publicity, that we joined in
having the Brazilian Ministry
of Justice suppress.
With those realities in mind,
I proposed to Sobel that on the
occasion of the 20th anniver-
sary of Nostra Aetate, we seek
to co-sponsor with the Na-
tional Conference of Brazilian
Catholic Bishops a Pan-
American Conference on
Catholic-Jewish Relations.
In an unprecedented act, the
leadership of the Brazilian
hierarchy, led by Dom Jose Ivo
Lorscheiter, its president,
voted uanimously to co-
sponsor a trans-continental
Catholic-Jewish meeting with
the Confederation of Brazilian
Jewish communities, and the
American Jewish Committee.
(The Latin American Jewish
Congress asked to join in the
co-sponsorship and we readily
agreed. Ten days before the
meeting, it pulled out for
reasons still not clear.) Sobel
and Kovadloff served as coor-
dinators of the Conference.
On Sunday night, Nov. 3,
before a packed auditorium in
the Hebraica Cultural and
Sports Center in Sao Paulo a
spectacular event unfolded.
Six cardinals and five
bishops were present in-
cluding the president of
CELAM, the Latin American
Conference of Catholic
Bishops; the Brazilian Catholic
hierarchy's president; the Car-
dinal of Sao Paulo; the Car-
dinal of Rio de Janeiro; the
Cardinal of El Salvador; the
Archbishop of Brasilia; the
Bishop of Porto Allegro; and
the NCCB Bishop in charge of
ecumenical relations. The Am-
bassadors of Israel and France
also attended.
On a personal level, Sobel in-
vited Cardinal Jean Marie
Lustiger of Paris who
delivered a moving address on

Jerusalem: From Despair to

message welcoming "the
march forward of tolerance"
in Brazil. Messages from the
President of Brazil, Jose
Sarney, and from Pope John
Paul II gave their support and
encouragement to the con-
ference's purposes of "over-
coming misunderstanding and
promoting mutual respect."
It was the first time in the
500-year history of Brazilian
Jewry that such a public out-
pouring of respect, apprecia-
tion, and solidarity had come
from such a galaxy of Catholic
ecclesiastical and government
authorities. A leading Sao
Paulo Jewish industrialist,
who had emigrated here from
Rumania many years before,
told me, "I never thought I
would live to see the day when
so many Catholic dignitaries
would make love publicly to
the Jewish people of Brazil."
Two days of intensive discus-
sions followed on the state of
Catholic-Jewish relations first
in Brazil, then throughout the
whole of South America.
Following the presentation of
papers by Vatican, Catholic
and Jewish scholars and ac-
tivists from Latin America and
the United States, a series of
unprecedented resolutions
were adopted by the joint
study conference:
"Zionism Is Not Racism":
Dr. Oswaldo Aranha Filho, son
of the former Foreign Minister
of Brazil who presided as
President of the UN General
Assembly in 1947 at the birth
of Israel, introduced a deeply-
felt resolution condemning
"the injustice" of the UN
Zionism-racism declaration,
asserting that "Zionism does
not carry the stain of
despotism or racism."
"Confronting the
Holocaust": The conference
resolved "to pursue teaching
about the Holocaust as part of
Catholic catechetical instruc-
tion ... to the end of
understanding and preventing
the pathology of hatred and
"Human Rights": "We
resolve to condemn each and
every violation of fundamental
human rights, whether in the
Soviet Union where Jews and
Catholics are constantly
harassed, or in Iran where the
Bahai minority is in danger of
extinction, or in any part of
the world where these rights
may be threatened."
"Religious Freedom and
Cultural Identity": "Any form
of proselytism, in the sfclls
gaining religious adhesion
exchange for worldly favoj,
benefits, shall be severely!
demned as a violation of con
cience and a disrespect fon
human being."
"Five Centuries of

Jewish communities have gone
from the first phase of the post-
Holocaust generation that of
breathing life back into the
traumatized vestiges to one of
enriching the quality of Jewish life
that remains.
"Today, as we pass this ben-
chmark of 40 years, we realize
that our efforts are no longer tied
to the past, but we are geared to
the future in Western Europe,
and the the Holocaust still a
vivid and painful memory is no
longer a point of reference for our
work," said Heinz Eppler, presi-
dent of the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee.
Some of the smaller and con-
tinually declining Jewish
populations of Europe will in-
evitably disappear, Lewis said
later to the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency. In Poland and
Czechoslovakia, he assessed,
there would soon be no Jews at all,
and within 20 years, assimilation
and intermarriage .would bring
the same fate to small Western
European communities such as
that of Zurich.
BUT ALL IS not gloomy, said
Lewis and his colleagues at the
forum. They spoke of a "new
vitality" in what remains of
Jewish life in Europe.
"This revitalization has
gathered pace and accelerated
over the last five years," Green-
wood said of the community in
England. He attributed the
revival to Israeli investment in
Education, particularly through
the dispatch of schlichim Israeli
representatives sent to convey the
Zionist message to youth and
adults. It is also, according to
Greenwood, the result of recogni-
tion on the part of many in the
post-Holocaust generation that
"survival counts." Beyond all
this, he observed, there has been a
"return to matters spiritual" by
Jewish youth.
Greenwood said that members
of the British Jewish community
are looking into the possibility of
introducing some form of Federa-
tion similar to the Jewish Federa-
tions across North America.
THE JEWS of France,
although fast losing numbers to
emigration, are devoting a con-
siderable part of their funds and
energies to newcomers, according
to Levy. He said that the com-

Support Cantorial Concert
The Jewish Floridian:
A cantorial concert featur-
ing four of the greatest can-
tors in the world, a children's
choir and an orchestra is being
planned for Wednesday even-
ing April 9, at the West Palm
Beach Auditorium.
It is appropriate that in
presenting this concert we
reflect together on the three
different terms that Judaism
invokes for the word cantor.
The first is "Hazzan" which
means literally "the one who
repeats" the prayers.
The second is "Sheliach
Tzibbur" meaning "one sent
by congregation" designated
to go before G-d to lead them
in prayer.
The third term is "Ba'al
Tefillah" meaning "master of
prayer" and signifying that
rare ability to help others feel
G-d's presence in and through
the act of prayer.
The cantors we will feature
at this program have indeed
helped us repeat our prayers
and have been overwhelmingly
accepted by their respective
congregations to lead them in
An article by Nat Hentoff
which appeared recently in the
Wall Street Journal starts off
with the following:
"In the orthodox synagogue
in the Boston ghetto where I
grew up, the cantor was the
main reason I went to services
at all. Back then, as for cen-
turies, while the rabbi appeal-
ed to the intellect of the con-
gregation, the cantor or haz-
zan, made the sacred texts
compellingly clear to the

He suggested the police should be
"glad of the help."
LEVY DID not say his patrols

caught anyone in a destructive
act. He stressed "teaching a

the JDO's actions in his district
but suggested they might be
"useful" in other areas. He said
he told Levy they should go to
East New York and Brownsville,
severely depressed neighborhoods
in Brooklyn, and to Manhattan's
Lower East Side where, he said,
elderly Jews live in terror and are
afraid to leave their apartments.
^ Hikind said he thought it was
"healthy" for Jews to learn how
to use weapons and other forms of
self-defense and that he did not
want to "impugn the intentions"
of the JDO. But he insisted their
tactics were not needed and would
be counter-productive in his
districts. He said there is virtually
no problem of anti-Semitism in
Boro Park, "probably because 85
percent of the residents are
Jews," 65 percent of them

owned shops non-Jewish shops

He stressed again that "no one
asked the JDO to come" and
noted that there is a community

"professionals" who carry licens-

Activist Recounts Harsh Treatment
Continued from Page 14
said he and his four compa-
nions decided a "more
dramatic" message was need-
ed to reach the leaders of the
two superpowers.
Reason For The Aeroflot Sit-
He said they decided to sit-in
at the Aeroflot office because
an airline is symbolic of open
borders, yet no Jew can board
a plane to leave Russia. He
said when they entered the of-
fice at 11 a.m. on Tuesday,
Nov. 19, Weiss went to the
ticket counter, produced a
credit card and asked to book a
flight for Anatoly Shcharansky
from Moscow to Israel.
Feuerstein said the office
was staffed by two women.
One made a hurried telephone
call and within five minutes,
four KGB men showed up. He
said the KGB agents pulled the
yarmulkas from the heads of
the activists, grabbed their
prayer books and threw them
in the gutter outside the office
- all in the presence of about
30-40 reporters who had been
alerted to the sit-in.
The sit-in lasted about 90
minutes before 30-40 Swiss
policemen entered the office.
Feuerstein said he and the
others lay flat on the floor of-
fering no resistance. They
were handcuffed and driven to
the local police station where
they were interrogated
seaparately for about 11 hours.
They were then placed in-
dividually into cells about two
feet by three feet in size.
Feuerstein said that when
they refused the food offered
them. Ronen was allowed to go
to a nearby restaurant, hand-
cuffed and heavily guarded to
procure kosher food, but after
they were transported to
Champs Dollon prison, this
was not allowed.
Magistrate Throws Out The
Each of the five was taken
separately to the court on Nov.
20 where, after many hours ot
waiting, they were brought
before a magistrate. The
Soviets had them arrested for
trespassing and damage to
property. But when no Soviet
representative appeared to
make the formal charge, the
magistrate threw out the case
and ordered the five released.
The police, however, ignored
the release order and all were
taken back in handcuffs to the
police station where, again,
they were allowed to send out
for kosher food. On Nov. 21,
after the summit ended, each
was driven separately to the
airport, escorted by police
aboard an aircraft and formal-
ly expelled from Switzerland.
Feuerstein stressed
repeatedly his conviction that
Jews must not remain silent or
rely on "quiet diplomacy."
"We will not be pacified by
political rhetoric," he said. He
said there is "no question the
message sent in Geneva was
received on all levels." But he
is reserving judgement as to
whether the summit will pro-
duce relief for Soviet Jews.
"We will not be satisfied un-
til Anatoly Shcharansky and
all other Jewish prisoners are
freed, until every Soviet Jew
who wishes boards a plane
for Israel," Feuerstein said.
