Others May Be Responsible
Jewish Man Charged in Brooklyn Rock-Throwing
Ihe
By WILLIAM SAPHIRE
NEW YORK (JTA) A
^-year-old Jewish man charg-
,with smashing the windows
,21 Jewish-owned shops dur-
ig two rock-throwing sprees
the Boro Park and Flatbush
ctions of Brooklyn last
jonth was arraigned in
Iriminal Court last week on 13
lunts of felony and misde-
ior, a spokesperson for
Irooklyn District Attorney
jizabeth Holtzman informed
Jewish Telegraphic
;ncy.
If convicted on all counts,
ie suspect, Gary Dworkin,
iuld be sentenced to up to 18
jars in prison, according to
ie DA's office. One of the
isdemeanor counts is viola-
Son of civil rights and
liscrimination because
. "orkin's alleged vandalism
ras carried out specifically
inst Jewish property.
He was arrested at his Boro
ark home Dec. 9 and
iportedly confessed. Capt.
maid Bromberg, commander
[ the New York Police
partment bias unit which
ras assigned to the case
because of its anti-Semitic im-
plications, said Dworkin "is
Jewish and has a history of
psychological problems."
He is accused of throwing
rocks through the windows of
13 Jewish-owned shops during
the night of Nov. 9-10 along a
seven-block strip of 13th
Avenue, the main shopping
center of Boro Park where the
population is 80 percent
Jewish, mostly ultra-Orthodox
and Hasidic.
He is accused of repeating
the act two weeks later, during
the night of Nov. 23, when five
more shop windows in Boro
Park were smashed and three
shop windows on Avenue J in
the adjoining Midwood section
of Flatbush, also heavily
populated by Orthodox Jews.
Bromberg noted in a
prepared statement that
Dworkin came under suspicion
as a result of information sup-
plied by members of the public
and that his arrest was based
on that information and on
statements by the suspect. He
said police found rocks in the
trunk of Dworking's car
similar to the rocks thrown
through the shop windows.
The vandalism gave rise to
tension in the tightly-knit
Jewish communities of Boro
Park and Flatbush where
racial incidents have been rare
in recent years.
A new wave of anti-
Semitism was feared, especial-
ly because the date of the first
rock-throwing coincided with
the 47th anniversary of
Kristallnacht, November 9,
1938, when rampaging Nazis
smashed the windows of
Jewish homes, businesses and
synagogues all over Germany,
littering the streets with
broken glass.
The attacks in Brooklyn
were carried out on Sabbath
night when the streets of the
Orthodox neighoorhoods were
deserted.
The rocks apparently were
thrown from a passing car.
The windows of non-Jewish
shops were spared. But one in-
gredient common to anti-
Semitic vandalism was miss-
ing: there were no swastikas
or anti-Semitic graffiti and no
anonymous telephone calls to
the police or the media
boasting of the deeds.
Nevertheless, New York
State Assemblyman Dov
Hikind, a Boro Park resident
who represents the district,
said that he was "95 percent
sure" that anti-Semitism
motivated at least the first at-
tack because it coincided with
the Kirstallnacht anniversary.
Hikind said he was "convinced
that Mr. Dworkin was not
responsible for the first
attack."

Plainly, the negotiators
senior civil servants from the
Foreign Ministry and the
Defense Ministry have
reached the outlines of an ac-
cord with Egypt on a pro-
cedure, while not entailing an
immediate submission of Taba
to arbitration, nevertheless in-
volving preparations for ar-
bitration while simultaneously
seeking a compromise
solution.
The Likud under Deputy
Premier and Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir has always
demanded that conciliation be
tried first before the sides
submit the issue to binding in-
ternational arbitration.
Premier Shimon Peres and
his Labor Party have been
prepared to accept Egypt s
position that arbitration be in-
voked without any effort at
conciliation.
The tension on Taba, if it in-
deed erupts, will have been
heightened by the ongoing and
worsening feud between the
two main coalition parties over
the West Bank land fraud
allegations, and also by the ef-
fect of the religious parties
threats of non-confidence
motions.
Mollie Fitterman, president
of the Women's Division of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, has named
Carol Greenbaum vice-
president for the 1986
Women's Division campaign.
Mrs. Greenbaum will be
responsible for organizing and
training groups of campaign
leaders and for establishing
and maintaining liaisons with
the general campaign leader-
ship and the national UJA
campaign.
"Last year the Women's
Division accounted for nearly
25 percent of the total dollars
raised by our Federation/UJA
campaign," said president
Mollie Fitterman. "Under
Carol Greenbaum's capable
leadership we hope to increase
the dollars raised and make
the Women's Division an even
more integral part of the total
campaign effort."
Carol Greenbaum
Before moving to Florida in
1981, Mrs. Greenbaum served
as president of the Women's
Division and Young Women's
Division of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Akron, Ohio, and she
was a member of the board of
the Jewish Family and
Children's Service there.
Currently a member of the
board and campaign cabinet of
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, Mrs. Green-
baum has chaired many impor-
tant campaign events for
Women's Division, including
the Pacesetter's event. She
also chaired the Women's Divi-
sion Nominating Committee
last year.
Mrs. Greenbaum's additional
involvement in the Jewish
community includes member-
ship in the Bat Gurion chapter
of Hadassah and the National
Council of Jewish Women.
"It is an honor to be working
with such a capable group of
professionals and community
leaders," Mrs. Greenbaum
said. "With the hard work and
cooperation that have been the
hallmark of Women's Division,
our campaign this year should
be more successful than ever."

Community Voices Concern For Soviet^Jewry
Rally At Beth El Draws 1,000
By LLOYD RESNICK
On Tuesday night, Dec. 10,
in the comfort and security of
the Fread Sanctuary at Tem-
ple Beth El in West Palm
Beach, approximately 1,000
people, Jews and Gentiles
alike, expressed their unified
support and concern for the
Jews of the Soviet Union, for
whom such comfort, security
and religious freedom is a
dream yet to be realized.
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, the Com-
munity Plea for Soviet
Jewry, which coincided with
Soviet Jewry Day in Palm
Beach County and with the
eve of Human Rights Day,
proved that freedom for
Jewish refuseniks and
prisoners of conscience is a
cause around which a great
number of people are
rallying.
In her opening remarks,
Terry Rapaport, chair of the
Soviet Jewry Task Force,
voiced our community's
solidarity with all those who
are oppressed. "We will rally
and help all people living
without freedom or justice,
she said. "The crescendo of
our voices will alert the Soviet
government that we will not
be silenced."
The Menorah of Hope
presentation, during which
seven young people shared
their dreams for their Soviet
brethren, was a poignant
reminder that Soviet Jewish
children are as victimized as
their parents.
While introducing the stu-
dent participants, Ann Lynn
Lipton, Jewish Education
director, said, "The
teenagers who attend our
Midrasha -Judaica High
School care about Jews wher-
ever they are. Many of
them, through a twinning
program, have shared their
most important religious ex-
perience a Bar or Bat Mitz-
vah with a child in the
Soviet Union who cannot
learn Hebrew or read the
Torah."
Shawn Barat, Liza Becker,
Lauren Block, Larry
Brickman, Craig Lesser,
Yvette Shefter and Beth
Wunsh expressed hope that
their Soviet "twins" would
soon be able to worship in
freedom, to light the Sabbath
candles and learn Hebrew,
and to make aliyah to Israel.
Erwin Blonder, president
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County, followed
with a sobering anecdote
about his recent visit to
Washington, D.C. When
Blonder and Robert Fitter-
man, Federation acting ex-
ecutive director, approached
the Soviet Embassy gates
with a letter pleading with
the Soviets to "let our people
go," the response over the in-
tercom was, "We don't ac-
cept letters like that except
through the mail."
"We all know what hap-
pens to those letters,"
Blonder said. Noting that
November was the worst
month of 1985 in terms of
Soviet-Jewish emigration,
Blonder insisted, "We've got
to continue the struggle.
We've got to fight."
The Freedom Singers, led
by Julian Stein, then
presented moving renditions
of "A Hymn of Freedom,"
Donald E. Lefton
Terry Rapaport, chair of the
Soviet Jewry Task Force,
pledged, "We will not be
silenced."
"Freedom Land" and
"Somewhere," after which
Rabbi Joel Levine, co-chair of
the Soviet Jewry Task Force
introduced keynote speaker
Donald E. Lefton, national
vice-chairman of the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry.
Lefton initially commented
that he was "delightfully
pleased" at the number and
quality of the audience. "I
was particularly impressed
by the children and their
remarks," Lefton added.
Lefton emphasized that the
American movement to free
Soviet Jews is not and never
was an attempt to undermine
the socialist system.
"Our goal has always been
simply to save Soviet Jewry
within the framework of in-
ternational human rights,"
he said.
Lefton catalogued the
various techniques used over
the years, including letter-
writing campaigns, picketing
the Soviet embassies and
enlisting the support of in-
fluential non-Jewish leaders
form all walks of American
life, and he added proudly,
"For over 13 years, every
day, 365 days a year, there
has been a vigil of protest
outside the Soviet Embasy."
Lefton then cited statistics
which clearly delineate the
problem at hand. He said that
two to three million Jews cur-
rently live in the Soviet
Union, comprising the third
largest Jewish community in
the world.
Since 1965 265,500 Jews
have been allowed to leave,
and of those 163,500 emigr-
ated to Israel. The best year
for Jewish emigration was
1979, when 51,300 Jews were
released. The worst year was
1984, and so far in 1985 only
1,047 Jews have been given
exit visas.
"There
are more than
symbolized the lckM 0f
religious and per.on.l
freedom experienced bv
Jews in the Soviet Union.
350,000 courageous Jews
who have applied for exit
visas and are waiting to
leave," Lefton said. "And im-
agine how many more would
be willing to leave if a policy
of demeaning and ruinous
reprisals against them was
not in effect."
After recounting the
various forms of discrimina-
tion against Soviet re-
fuseniks and prisoners of con-
science, (including KGB
harassment, jailings on false
charges, confiscation of pro-
perty, stripping of academic
titles, loss of high-level
employment and loss of ac-
cess to higher education),
Lefton discussed the recent
Reagan-Gorbachev summit.
While admitting that con-
crete results of the summit
may not be seen for some
time. Lefton said that what

Terrorism Expert To Speak At Lion Of Judah
Sheila Engelstein and
Shirley Leibew, co-chairs for
the Women's Division Lion of
Judah High Tea Reception,
have announced that terrorism
expert Sabi H. Shabtai will be
the guest speaker at this
year's prestigious event, to be
held on Thursday, Jan. 9 at 3
p.m. at the home of Mrs.
Sidney Kohl in Palm Beach.
Mr. Shabtai, who received a
PhD in political science from
the University of Chicago, is a
professor of political science, a
former intelligence officer in
the Israeli army and the
author of Five Minutes to Mid-
night, a novel about a terrorist
gang which takes over nuclear
power plants in an attempt to
hold the entire world hostage.
Sam Sartain, the novel's pro-
tagonist, is modeled after the
author himself.
Sabi H. Shabtai
According to Shabtai, ter-
rorism cannot be prevented.
but it can be contained. The
public must realize firstly that
terrorism represents a serious
threat to world democracy.
"The war against terrorism
has to involve the public
because the target of ter-
rorism is the public," claimed
Shabtai in a recent interview
with Northern California
Jewish Bulletin.
Shabtai, who is sought as a
consultant on terrorism by
governments, businesses and
military organizations, observ-
ed that the nature of terrorism
has changed profoundly over
the past 20 years. "There
seems to be a more definite in-
clination on the part of ter-
rorists to kill," said Shabtai.
"The case of Leon Klinghoffer
made the point once and for
all: These guys are criminals."
Shabtai admits that public
awareness alone will not con-
trol political terrorism, which
he notes has forced the U.S.
government into policy shifts
and weakened liberty here and
abroad. Shabtai insists that ef-
fective counter-intelligence ac-
tivities and international co-
operation are essential.
"For the terrorist, the whole
globe is his battlefield, so a
multi-national counter-
terrorist force is needed to
meet the enemy on his own
ground," he said.
"We need to know what
they're going to do before they
do it," continued Shabtai, who
noted that Israel is excep-
tionally good at infiltrating
terrorist groups.
Shabtai says he is working
on another book, The
Takeover, which he calls a
"highly factual book" dealing
with the most recent
developments in political
terrorism.
"There are no magic-
solutions to the terrorist pro-
blem," Shabtai concludes,
"but now is the time to do
something about it."

Tadmor Addresses Campaign Cabinet
On Friday morning, Dec. 6,
40 campaign cabinet leaders
met for breakfast at the Air-
port Hilton to discuss cam-
paign planning for the 1986
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County/United Jewish
Appeal/Project Renewal
campaign.
The group of campaign
leaders, representing the
many geographic areas of the
Palm Beach County Jewish
community, were privileged to
hear a speech by Shlomo Tad-
mor, the outgoing deputy
director general of the Jewish
Agency.
Tadmor began his remarks
with observations on the
media treatment of Israel.
"Whatever happens in Israel
or the West Bank is news," he
said. "There's a civil war in
Lebanon, a catastrophic battle
between Iraq and Iran and
continuing bloodshed in
Afghanistan, but let a stone be
thrown in the West Bank and
l you have headlines. Israel has
I good reasons to be sensitive
| about its media treatment."
In contrast, Tadmor noted
that the Jewish Agency goes
kibout its life-saving work
f without fanfare.
General Campaign Chairman
Arnold L. Lampert introduc-
ed Mr. Tadmor.
Tadmor stressed the impor-
tance of Federation-Jewish
Agency cooperation in main-
taining Jewish communities in
Israel and the Diaspora.
"Jewish people living outside
Israel receive hope because
there is an Israel, just as Jews
in Israel are helped by those in
the diaspora," he said.
While noting that the
diaspora population is three
times larger than the Jewish
population in Israel, Tadmor
pointed to statistics which
show that the growth rate of
diaspora population is
declining.
Compared to a 27 percent
growth rate in Israel's Jewish
population, diaspora Jewry is
at or very near zero population
growth.
Pointing to the fact that 40
percent of all new Jewish bir-
ths occur in Israel, Tadmor
declared that Israel is central
to the demographic future of
world Jewry.
"Whatever happens in Israel
will be important for the
future of the entire Jewish
people," he said. "And
therefore the efforts of the
Jewish Agency take on an
even greater significance."
Referring to the miracle of
Operation Moses, Tadmor
said, "The magic moment is
over," but he cautioned that
dealing effectively with the
cultural transition of Ethio-
pian Jews to Israeli life will be
a long and costly process.
"Our initial cost projections
for the immigration and ab-
sorption of Ethiopian Jews
was $130 million. The actual
cost is likely to rise above $300
million," Tadmor said, noting
that unlike most European and
North African immigrants,
Ethiopian Jews are not as
ready to tend for themselves
after a year of Jewish Agency
support.
"Our biggest problem now,"
said Tadmor, "is a lack of
about 3,000 units of perma-
nent housing near places
where these new arrivals can
procure jobs."
"We want to help the Ethio-
pians become integrated into
Israeli society," Tadmor con-
tinued, "but we also want to
try to help them preserve their
own cultural heritage."
Tadmor emphasized that
these and other fiscal demands
on the Jewish Agency come at
a time when the Israeli govern-
ment is without resources to
help. "The less the govern-
ment can do, the more we have
to do," he said.
Looking briefly into the
future, Tadmor said he had
"no indication that there will
be any change in the Soviet
Jewry situation, but the Rus-
sians aren't in the habit of an-
nouncing their plans in this
area."
Nevertheless, Tadmor add-
ed, "We have to prepare for
any and all eventualities.
Whether Jews come from the
Shlomo Tadmor
Soviet Union, South Africa or
South America, there will have
to be a place for them in Israel.
We must maintain our
readiness."
Before taking questions
from the audience, Tadmor
recalled an anecdote regarding
the late Golda Meir. Asked by
a reporter during the Yom
Kippur War how long Israel
could go on mobilizing the en-
tire country for war, Golda
said, "As long as it takes to
live."
"The Jewish Agency will
continue to do what it does for
as long as it takes for the
Jewish people to live secure-
ly," echoed Tadmor.

Young Adult Division Meets For First Time
The first meeting of the
I newly formed Young Adult
Division of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County
[took place on Tuesday, Dec. 10
I during a luncheon at the Air-
Iport Hilton.
Menachem Savidor, im-
I mediate past Speaker of
Israel's 10th Knesset and
former Lt. Colonel with The
Israel Defense Force, was the
I guest speaker.
Scott Rassler, chairman of
the Young Adult Division Task
Force, outlined the purpose of
I the inaugural meeting by say-
ing to the audience of 40, "Our
[goal is to create an educational
and social environment in
which tomorrow's Jewish
leaders can network and
develop a sense of commit-
I "lent and belonging."
Rassler then introduced
Savidor, who began by assess-
ing the American media's
treatment of the West Bank
situation as "not just a distor-
tion, but an outrage."
Savidor admitted that there
have been and probably will
continue to be violent flare-ups
in the West Bank, but he at-
tributed this to the fact that all
Israelis, Arab and Jew alike,
are given the freedom to speak
out and express themselves,
liberties they were denied
when the West Bank was part
of Jordan.
"There are now 17 univer-
sities in various parts of the
West Bank," Savidor said.
"When Hussein ruled the area,
there were none."
Relating his comments to
Chanukah, Savidor stressed
that Jews have alwavs been "a
revolutionary people," from
the time of the Maccabees
through the Zionist revolution
to the present day.
"We are still living in revolu-
tionary times," Savidor claim-
ed, "and many challenges lie
Savidor Addresses Pertinent Issues
ahead of us."
Savidor also emphasized the
importance of studying Jewish
history and culture and the
Hebrew language. "Be proud
of your heritage," he told his
young audience. "Every one of
you should acquire the Hebrew
Language and become part of
the culture which has brought
a special kind of life to all
mankind."
Speaking of Israel's
economic situation, Savidor,
who served on the Knesset's
Finance Committee and
presently presides over the
National Committee for
Economic Recovery, cited four
basic causes of Israel's present
difficulties.
Israel's lack of indigenous
raw materials creates the need
to import many products;
Israel, beleaguered by enemies
yet obligated to maintain a
strong military deterrent,
spends one-third of its Gross
National Product on defense;
Israel has absorbed 1.8 million
people, three times as many
citizens as it originally had in
1948 when the State was
created; and the various wars
that Israel has had to fight to
achieve and maintain its in-
dependence have cost billions
of dollars, not to mention
17,000 lives, which Savidor
called the "flowers of our
youth."
While Savidor acknowledged
the boon of U.S. foreign aid to
Israel, he emphasized that
such economic assistance does
nothing to reduce Israel's $24
billion foreign debt.
"It is therefore of extreme
importance for Diaspora Jews,
especially the young, to get in-
volved by attending meetings
like this and by committing
themselves to Federation/UJA
campaigns."
After explaining the govern-
ment's current policy of wage
and price controls and restric-
tions on the money supply,
Savidor said, "So far the
results are very encouraging.
Monthly inflation is now down
to about two percent, but we
would like to completely
emasculate it and thereby in-
crease economic growth."
Recalling that several
British commissions in the
1940's claimed that Palestine
had no absorption capacity,
Savidor pointed out that Israel
now not only supports four
million people, but also exports
about $1 billion in fresh and

Arafat's Cairo
Beyond Belief
Declaration'
When Yassir Arafat announced from Cairo that the PLO
would limit its terrorist attacks to "the occupied Arab lands,'
Egyptian President Mubarak hailed this as a renunciation of ter-
ror and a sign that he was extending a hand for peace. But it
quickly became apparent that Arafat was trying to hide his ter-
rorist program behind empty words.
" Egyptian officials said that the "Cairo Declaration" meant
PLO terrorism would be limited to the West Bank. But Arafat
was quick to clarify, saying: "It is not responsible to announce
that we will confine our operations to the West Bank .
military operations are not excluded from Israeli territory."
(Radio Monte Carlo, November 15, 1985)
And in case his declaration was interpreted as a sign that he
was ready for peace, Arafat insisted: "I don't simply want, I de-
mand, more (commando) operations, and more resistance
against this occupation until it leaves our land." (Arab News,
Nov. 11, 1985)
In fact, the "Cairo Declaration" was little more than a reaf-
firmation of PLO terrorism against Israel. But this should come
as no surprise as Arafat has clearly spelled out the PLO strategy
for the destruction of Israel.
Arafat has repeatedly stated that terrorism is the PLO's
policy of choice: "Armed struggle will continue to be our main
option for achieving all of our militant people's objectives and
aspirations." (Baghdad Voice of the PLO, Oct. 17, 1985)
He has made clear who he regards as legitimate targets of
armed struggle: "What we face in our occupied land are settlers
totalling 3,500,000 individuals." (Voice of Palestine, April 30,
1985) Recently he praised the "daring" Egyptian soldier who
murdered seven Israeli tourists.
He has also made clear his rejection of negotiations: "Our
war is going to be a long and hard one. Palestine will not be
regained through peaceful solutions or through the Israeli Labor
Party, as some believe, but through fighting and Palestinian
blood." (QNA, December 19, 1984).
And he has made it clear that this armed struggle is not only
aimed at Israel, but at the United States also: The United States
"has become the principal adversary to us." (al-Sharq al-Awsat.
Oct. 18. 1985)
The "Cairo Declaration" was just another attempt by Arafat
to put a new face on the same policy. Yasser Arafat remains the
kingpin of PLO terror.

First of Two Parts
For many of us, it seems
almost impossible to conceive
of a new book on the Holocaust
that tells us anything we don't
already know. As for
American reaction to the
murder of European Jews, last
year's Abandonment of the
Jews a vitally important
work would seem to have
said it all.
But, of course, it didn't. No
one book can. That is why
Deborah Lipstadt's just-
published Beyond Belief: The
American Press and the Com-
ing of the Holocaust (The Free
Press) makes such essential
reading.
Lipstadt's book which
received a rave review in the
Nov. 19 New York Times is
remarkably comprehensive, in
large part because of an
historic find she made at the
FDR library in Hyde Park.
Lipstadt discovered that from
1933 through 1945, President
Roosevelt received a daily
press digest of news stories
from around the country. The
clippings came from 500
American newspapers and
were delivered to FDR each
morning. Lipstadt calls the
press digests, which were read
by Roosevelt and other key
government officials, "one of
the most important White
House barometers of public
attitudes."
Roosevelt used the digest as
a means of discerning what the
American people were reading
and thinking about each day.
Lipstadt, who studied them all,
uses them both as a barometer
of public attitude and as one
sure indicator of what the
President knew about the
mass killing of the Jewish
people.
Perhaps her key finding is
that most American jour-
nalists rejected the facts about
the Nazis' "final solution"
because they were, simply,
"beyond belief." Reporters
had been badly burned by
World War I atrocity stories
about Germany (many of
which were total fabrications)
and assumed that the World
War II persecution of Jews
was also propaganda and not
to be taken seriously. They
were determined not to be
duped by the anti-Nazis. In-
stead, they were duped by the
Nazis.
Beyond Belief tells the
stories of dozens of journalists
and of why they wrote and
behaved as they did. Some
were naive about world affairs
and about evil. They just
couldn't believe that human
beings were capable of mass
extermination. Others were
anti-Semites and self-hating
Jews.
Walter Lippmann, perhaps
the most influential columnist
of this century, falls into the
latter category. Lippmann was
a tolerant man a defender of
oppressed minorities. But he
seems to have despised his
.Jewishness and, as Lipstadt
points out, he took extreme
measures to ensure that he
would not be labeled as a Jew.
But he was. Time called him
America's "most statesmanly
Jewish pundit." His Jewish
heredity, despite his rejection
of it, made Lippmann an ideal
apologist for Nazi anti-
Semitism. And that is what he
was when he urged his millions
of readers not to judge Ger-
many harshly because of h.
anti-Semitism. He wrL .i18
to do so would be, iCtS
"the Catholic church*
Spanish Inquisition rV dT
testantism ly the Ku
Klan or the Jews by Sj
parvenus" or upstarts ,n7*
pmann s view, the Jew, Ci
brought on destrucS ^
their bad manners. Dun 5
12/ersLOf the Third ff
and of the Holocaust u2
mann did not write a sin
word expressing concern^
outrage about the ml
murder. M*
Lippmann was far frp-
alone in his moral obtusetw*
The Christian SeS
Monitor, like Lippmann, blam-
ed the Jews /or Nazi anti-
Semitism In,1933, a Monti*
editorial declared that it was
Jewish "commercial clan-
nishness which... gets them"
into trouble." It said that
reports of atrocities against
Jews were "exaggerated" bv
those "inclined toward
hysteria."
The Christian Century, the
most prominent Protestant
magazine in the United States,
asked if "Hitler's attitude may
be somewhat governed by the
fact that too many Jews, at
least in Germany, are radical,
too many are Communists.'
The same magazine ran an ar-,
tide which said that the Jews
had brought their suffering on
themselves by supporting
"reactionary parties. Tlus
was a common pattern: accus-
ing Jews of simultaneously be-
ing right-wingers and Com-
munists. The bottom line was
that the Jews were,
themselves, responsible for
their own fate.

Promise for the Future
The Endowment Fund Of The Jewish Federation Of Palm Beach County
Friday, December 20, 1985/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 5
By
IrNOLD I. SCHWARTZMAN
Endowment Director
I For the last three weeks we
|,ve focused on the Endow-
ent Program and some of the
0st widely utilized vehicles
oviding opportunities for
ritable giving. We have
rtvided information on the
Wanthropic Fund and the
fiaritable Remainder Trust.
, addition, we have set forth
ne ideas for end of the year
; planning and given the
(Immunity an initial feeling
lr some of the goals and ob-
Wes of the Endowment
lind of the Jewish Federation
[ Palm Beach County.
JThis past week, I was so
loved by a piece prepared by
to of my colleagues .that I
[ought a change of pace was
[ order.
I The end of the year is a time
> reflect and a time to plan. In
any ways, I think that the
ioignant words of one grand-
Ether state most meaningfully
fed articulately what the En-
pwment Program is truly all
out. _____
I couldn't sleep last night. I
ly awake staring blankly into
pe darkness, the iridescence
: my clock radio glaring back
_ me. My thoughts were
bmbled as I reviewed my day.
I had been to see my lawyer
the morning. We spent
pveral hours discussing my
state plan. Since my Sarah
Bed last year I knew I had to
pake new arrangements for
he disposition of my estate. I
had put off the appointment
tor months because, well
because I didn't'like thinking
about my own mortality. My
wwwadvteed me months ago
that if I didn't rethink my
estate plan and have my will
redrafted the government
would take a large part of
what I spent a lifetime
building. So, I finally made the
appointment.
I told Sam, my attorney, I
wanted my children and
grandchildren to get
everything at the least cost to
my estate. We talked about
trusts, guardianships, valua-
tion of my assets, gifts and
taxes. Toward the end of our
meeting Sam asked what I
thought at the time to be a
very curious question. "Do you
want to leave anything to the
Jewish Endowment Founda-
tion to perpetuate some of
your philanthropic interest?"
"I've given all my life," I
said, "through good times and
bad. I made my pledge every
year to the Jewish Welfare
Fund. I gave to capital fund
drives, to my synagogue, to
Israel. I bought tickets to the
Policeman's Ball, sent orphans
to the Shrine Circus, grew fat
on Girl Scout cookies and
wrote my address on
thousands of raffle tickets. It's
enough," I said, "my children
and grandchildren should get
all my property. The Jewish
community will take care of
itself, I did enough."
In the afternoon I went to
the office, but I couldn't work.
I went to my son and daugher-

What Will They Remember?
in-law for dinner, then played
with my two grandchildren un-
til it was time for them to go to
bed. I listened to the delight of
their laughter and thought
how they would benefit from
the plans I made today.
Now I'm lying here awake.
It's 2:00 in the morning. I'm
tired, but I can't sleep. I think
I know why. I've been asking
myself the same nagging ques-
tion over and over again for
the past few hours. What will
they remember?
What will my grandchildren
remember about me after I
die? Oh, there will be pictures
around. My son will remind
them of the good times we
spent together. But as the
years blend into one another
and time ticks away, what will
they remember about ME?
I've lived a full life. I was
honest in business and I pro-
spered. I've given money and
time to my Jewish community.
Over the years I've helped br-
ing it to the vibrant point it is
today. I want my chilren and
grandchildren and yes, God
willing, great-grandchildren to
know not only that they are
Jews, but to be responsible as
Jews in their community. But 1
won't always be here to talk
about such things, to act as an
example, to be proud of what
Sarah and I did.
My mind drifts back to the
appointment I had with Sam.
"Do you want to give anything
to charity to perpetuate your
philanthropic interests?'
That's the key to perpetuate
my philanthropic interest.
My children and grand-
children won't love me any less
if I give a portion of my estate
to my Jewish community's en-
dowment to help insure the
quality of Jewish life that I,
and my Sarah when she was
alive, helped to build. A perma-
nent fund, maybe, will give us
a touch of immortality. I'd like
that. But even more impor-
tant, when grants are made
from our named fund in future
years to charitable projects
that need help, that will be the
grandchildren's example. That
they will remember. They'll
remember ME.
At last sleep.
HIAS Urges Ratification
Of Genocide Treaty
NEW YORK, N.Y. In a
statement issued recently by
Robert L. Israeloff, president
of HIAS (the Hebrew Im-
migrant Aid Society), the
organization urged speedy
ratification by the U.S. Senate
of the United Nations Conven-
tion on the Prevention and
Punishment of the Crime of
Genocide. In addition, HIAS
issued an action alert to its
board and network of
cooperating agencies stressing
the importance of ratification
and requesting that they im-
mediately contact their
Senators to convince them of
the vital nature of this issue.
The following is part of Mr.
Israeloff s statement:
"As Jewish Americans, we
understand too well the
catastrophic results of attemp-
ted genocide. Six million of our
fellow Jews were systematical-
ly murdered by the Nazis. Our
fellow Americans, continuing
this country's historic tradi-
tion, liberated the survivors of
the Nazi Holocaust and offered
them haven. In our organiza-
tion's current work of rescue
and resettlement of refugees,
we constantly are confronted
with the plight of victims of at-
tempted genocide.
"The crime of genocide must
be outlawed. The international
community should dedicate
itself to preventing such
crimes and to punishing those
who would seek to destroy any
group of people. By signing
the Genocide Convention, the
United States can signal its
own commitment to these
principles and restore its
leadership role in the struggle
for human rights."
Gush Leader Renounces West Bank Violence
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Rabbi Moshe Levinger, a
leader of the militant Gush
Emunim, says he no longer
supports the kind of violent
acts against West Bank Arabs
for which members of a Jewish
terrorist underground are cur-
rently serving prison
sentences. He was seconded in
that view by a lawyer, Elyakim
Haetzni, who is associated
with the settlers movement.
The two men discussed the
future of the territory at a
gathering in Yitzhar, a Gush
settlement in the Samaria
district this week. Haetzni said
the Jewish underground caus-
ed "terrible damage," but he
conceded that there had been
considerable Jewish support
for such acts as the June, 1980,
car bombings which maimed
two Arab mayors and blinded
an Israeli police sapper.
Levinger and Haetzni dif-
fered over how they would
resist possible territorial con-
cessions in Judaea and
Samaria. Levinger urged that
the "pioneer image" of Jewish
settlers be stressed to attract
more followers, enabling the
Gush Emunim to establish
more settlements.
Haetzni argued that the ex-
perience in Sinai, which was
returned to Egypt, proved
that settlements alone could
not stand in the way of ter-
ritorial concessions made for
political reasons. He proposed
that the I "* public be made
aware ol angers of con-
cessions to the point
hysteria. "I want to create
hysteria. During the Holocaust
those who were hysterical
were saved," the lawyer
maintained.
Levinger said he feared the
future struggle over the ter-
ritories would lead to bloodsh-
ed. The gathering ended with
adoption of a resolution warn-
ing the government that it
"has no authority to negotiate
concessions in Eretz Israel"
because "such concessions*
lack any legal or moral
authority."
In another development, set-
tlers in Sanur, in Samaria,
abandoned a nearby mosque
they had seized and converted
to a synagogue. They agreed
to leave the mosque after what
was described as several mon-
ths of "quiet persuasion" by
the West Bank civil ad-
ministration headed by Col.
Efraim Snel.

Community Plea For Soviet Jewry
Hadassah Reiterates Its
Position On Law Of Return
Ruth W. Popkin, president of
the National Board of
Hadassah, the Women's
Zionist Organization of
America, has issued the follow-
ing statement in response to
reports of the possibility of
renewed attempts in Israel to
amend the law of Return,
"Hadassah, the Women's
Zionist Organization of
America, reaffirms its oppsi-
tkwi to any alteration by the
Knesset of Israel's Law of
Return.
This law has stood as a
sacred affirmation of the unity
of the Jewish people. It states
simply and unconditionally:
Any Jew can come home to
Israel.
The Law of Return has not
only made possible the in-
gathering of hundreds of
thousands of Jews seeking a
home, but it has been essential
to the creative reassertion of
Jewish nationhood.
As Zionists, we believe in the
unity of the Jewish people.
Throughout its 74-year
history, Hadassah members
have participated actively in
the upbuilding of the Jewish
state and have sought to
strengthen the relationship
between Diaspora Jewry and
the Jews of Israel.
As the largest Zionist
organization in the United
States, Hadassah believes that
any action to amend the Law
of Return threatens and en-
dangers this unity. Therefore,
Hadassah urges the members
of the Knesset to remove this
divisive issue from its
agenda."

happened before the summit
was as important as what
took place in Geneva.
"There was an outpouring
of support for Soviet Jewry
from communities across the
country during the weeks
before the summit." Lefton
said. "There were rallies, ad
campaigns and vigils from
coast to coast."
"The community's interest
in this burning issue needs to
be constantly revitalized,"
Lefton continued. "The
refuseniks and the Soviet
authorities do hear about
these events. The success or
failure of the Soviet Jewry
movement depends almost
entirely on communities such
as this," he claimed.
Returning to the subject of
the summit itself, Lefton
dubbed Mikhail Gorbachev "a
master of public relations,"
but he added that Gorbachev
is very interested in ex-
changes of culture and scien-
tific technology and that a
continuing dialogue between
himself and Reagan is a
priority.
"In order to get the ex-
change programs he wants,
Gorbachev will have to make
concessions," Lefton observ-
ed. "There is no doubt he
sees the Soviet Jewry issue
as a pivotal element in get-
ting what he wants."
Noting that the likelihood
of Jewish emigration from
the Soviet Union will in-
crease as U.S.-USSR rela-
tions improve and as the di-
U.S., Israel Discussing Future
of Military, Economic Aid
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) The United States and Israel
are discussing military and economic aid proposals for the 1987
fiscal year which begins next Oct. 1, the State Department said.
But State Department deputy spokesman Charles Redman
refused to disclose the amount of aid under discussion "We ex-
pect to have an agreement which takes into account both Israel's
aid requirements and U.S. budgetary restraints," Redman said.
HE WOULD not comment on a report from Jerusalem that
Israel has requested $3.5 billion in economic assistance for the
1987 fiscal year. The report said the aid request was presented
to Thomas Pickering, the U.S. Ambassador in Israel, by Israeli
Finance Minister Yitzhak Modai.
Israel is receiving this year, $1.2 billion in economic aid and
another $1.8 billion in military aid, all of it as a grant. In addi-
tion, Israel is also receiving $750 million in emergency economic
assistance to help it achieve its economic austerity program.
Pickering was quoted as saying that Israel has taken "pain-
ful steps" to revive its economy and noted that this is "an area in
which the United States has done its part and will continue to."
U.S. Urges Israel to Sign
Nonproliferation Treaty
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The State Department has
again urged Israel to sign the
nuclear non-proliferation trea-
ty. "We believe that regional
stability in the Middle East
will be enhanced if all states in
the region accepted com-
prehensive safeguards and
adhered to the nonprolifera-
tion treay," State Department
deputy spokesman Charles
Redman said at the daily press
briefing in response to a
reporter's question on Israel's
failure, so far, to sign the
treaty.
"We are concerned by the
existence of unsafeguarded
nuclear facilities in Israel and
have made this concern known
to the Israeli government,"
Redman added. "We have
repeatedly urged Israel to ac-
cept comprehensive
safeguards."
However, Redman noted
that "Israel has stated publicly
that it will not be the first na-
tion to introduce nuclear
weapons in the region."
Although Israel has never
admitted to have nuclear
weapons, Leonard Spector, a
senior associate at the
Washingtn-based Carnegie
Endowment for International
Peace, in his recently publish-
ed "The New Nuclear Na-
tions," Carnegie's second an-
nual report on the spread of
nuclear weapons, said that
Israel is believed to have 20 to
25 aircraft-deliverable nuclear
weapons.
Redman stressed that the
U.S. has strong controls on the
export of "commodities that
have nuclear application" and
is working "strenuously" with
other supplier countries to
control such exports.
alogue between the two
superpowers develops, Lef-
ton nevertheless warned
against complacency.
"American Jews have to be
seen by the Soviets as in-
fluential, and we have to con-
tinue to write letters and
make visits to state and
federal legislators," Lefton
declared.
"Politicians here and..
abroad must believe that
American Jews care as much
about the 2-3 million Soviet
Jews as they do about our
people in the Middle East,"
he continued.
Lefton said the duty of all
Jewish communal leaders is
to visit the Soviet Union and
meet with refuseniks. Referr-
ing to his visit six years ago,
Lefton said, "It was the most'
rewarding and enlighting
thing I've ever done in mv
life' '
"Unless we do something,"
he continued, "we will
witness one of the greatests
tragedies in the history of our
people."
Noting that a Jew is a Jew
regardless of nationality or
geographical origin, Lefton
concluded by saying, "If it is
not safe to be a Jew
everywhere on earth, it is not
safe to be a Jew anywhere on
earth. And if it is not safe to
be a Jew, it will not be safe to
be human."
Rabbi Alan Sherman,
chaplain of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County, then introduced Rev.
William Ilnisky of the
Calvary Temple in West
Palm Beach, who delivered a
benediction emphasizing the
unity between all faiths on
matters of human rights.
The evening ended with
Calvary Temple Singers
leading the audience in
''L'shana Haba-ah
Y'rushalayim."
With 1,000 voices raised in
song and 2,000 arms linked in
solidarity, our community's
unified plea for Soviet Jewry
will have its impact here and
abroad.

President HerZOg'S VieW Amsterdam Papers Returned
By DAVID TWERSKY
I JERUSALEM President
Chaim Herzog one of the ar-
chitects of Israel's national
unity government is "both
very encouraged and very
discouraged" about its perfor-
mance. In an exclusive inter-
view with Near East Report,
Herzog said that the
% "withdrawal from Lebanon,
which no narrow government
could have achieved," heads
the list of the government's ac-
complishments. Another is the
government's "enormous ef-
fort to overcome the economic
crisis and to bring inflation
down" as well as the
movements toward "a
dialogue with Jordan in
whose court the ball now sits."
I Herzog is disappointed,
however, that the coalition has
not produced a "greater in-
tegration" more of a na-
tional consensus on key issues.
He had hoped that "the
political in-fighting would have
been left behind for the period
of the national unity govern-
ment although I didn't expect
that any side would abandon
its ideas. Unfortunately, the
tone within the Cabinet leaves
much to be desired." He
decries "the atmosphere of
partisanship" which prevails
:ihere.
Herzog 3trongly advocates
overhauling Israel's electoral
system. He says that when the
unity government was formed
both large parties proposed to
raise the vote total necessary
for a party to enter the
Knesset and to change to the
district system of electing
Knesset members. Herzog
believes that reforms already
implemented in the municipal
sector have proven the worth
of making the "candidates
directly dependent on the elec-
torate" rather than the party.
PLO ROLE
As a former head of military
intelligence, Herzog can speak
with authority when he says
that the PLO is "irrelevant" to
the peace process. To be rele-
vant, it must be able either "to
achieve its goals, which it is
fot," or possess a leadership
strong enough to com-
promise, which it does not."
Yasir Arafat is "a weak
leader" who "could not deliver
the goods even if he wanted
to."
Herzog believes that the
"two elements" Israel* must
engage in dialogue are the Jor-
danians and the Palestinian
^adership in the West Bank
and the Gaza strip, which he
praises as "impressive ... I
don't know if King Hussein
will take up Mr. Peres'

challenge and begin negotia-
tions. But I do know that
without his leadership Palesti-
nian leaders in the West Bank
and Gaza, with whom I fre-
quently talk, will not come for-
ward, for fear of assassination.
What most outside analysts
often forget or ignore is the
element of fear" preventing
those who support accom-
modation with Israel from
speaking out.
Herzog is also concerned
about Israeli extremism. He
has taken the lead in efforts to
thwart Meir Kahane and his
racist schemes. "I have taken
the fight to the public arena in
Israel, and to American Jewry,
where Kahane receives much
support. Kahane is an Israeli
and Jewish problem." Herzog
condemned Kahane before the
latter was elected to the
Knesset in 1984. "In my in-
auguration speech in the
Knesset I said that the great
danger to Israel today comes
from within and not from
without." When Kahane was
elected, he was the only party
leader Herzog refused to
receive for the traditional
round of post-election coalition
consultations.
Herzog thinks that those on
the political fringe who recent-
ly threatened "civil war" if the
government agreed to a ter-
ritorial compromise with Jor-
dan are "very dangerous." It
is very important "for
everyone to take a strong
stand against them," he said.
"After all, Khane openly ad-
vocates abolishing democracy
and negates the Israeli
Declaration of Independence.
These new threats are a
natural corollary to the at-
mosphere Kahane helped
To Dutch Jewish Community
create. The silent majority
must now stand up."
U.S. TIE
Herzog believes that despite
recent misunderstandings the
U.S.-Israel tie "has never been
stronger." Israel has
understood for a long time
that "its fate is tied to that of
the free world and especially
to the leader of the free
world." Today, the actions of
the Reagan Administration
and the Congress "reflect the
fact that they are committed
to support of Israel not only
because they respect the
region's only democratic state,
but because they see a strong
Israel in this part of the world
as an integral part of U.S.
security interests."
Chaim Herzog is basically
optimistic about the future of
his country. Travelling around
Israel he has witnessed "enor-
mous development, and the
growth of a dynamic, youthful
local leadership." Israeli towns
and villages have active
municipal systems, with "com-
munity centers, orchestras,
choirs, sports facilities, adult
education programs and
cultural events."
He acknowledges that the
media, especially the foreign
media, portray "the less happy
side of the picture." He says
that news reports concentrate
on the effects of the economic
crisis, but fail to mention that
"the majority of the people
back the governments at-
tempts to solve the problem."
(Twersky is Near East
Report's correspondent in
Jerusalem.)
Some years after the close of
World War II, a young rabbi sent
to Germany by the World Union
for Progressive Judaism,
discovered, amidst the ruins of
East Berlin, a cache of documents
from the Jewish Community of
Amsterdam. Rabbi Nathan Peter
Levinson, who was ordained at
Hebrew Union College-Jewish In-
stitute of Religion in 1948,
rescued the collection and en-
trusted the 44,640 documents to
his alma mater where they re-
mained, in Cincinnati, for 35
years.
On July 29, President Alfred
Gottschalk formally returned the
papers in public ceremonies at the
headquarters of the Amsterdam
Jewish community. "We well
43 Percent Of All
Jewish Births
Occur In Israel
JERUSALEM Although
only 25 percent of the Jewish peo-
ple now live in Israel, that country
accounts for 43 percent of all
Jewish births, according to Pro-
fessor Dela Pregola of the
Statistics Department at the
Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
What accounts for this
phenomenon? Jewish families in
the Diaspora have on average
fewer than two children, com-
pared with an average of three
children per family in the state of
Israel. The Professor also noted
that, but for the extreme shortage
of housing, the birth rate in Irael
would be even higher. He further
projects that by the end of the
20th century, Israel will account
for at least 50 percent of all
Jewish births worldwide, in an-
ticipation of a decline of 20 per-
cent in Jewish births elsewhere. It
is expected that by the end of the
century, the Jewish population in
Israel will be 4.5 million out of a
total world population of 12
million, as compared with the pre-
sent census of approximately 13
million.
understand and sympathize with
the emotion that the present
Amsterdam Jewish community
feels," Dr. Gottschalk com-
mented. "We are heartened to be
able to return these precious
documents to the reconstituted
Jewish community.
Representatives of the Amster-
dam Jewish community had ap-
proached the Klau Library in Cin-
cinnati after reading an article
about its special collections, in-
cluding the Amsterdam materials,
in the library's journal. Studies in
Bibliography and Booklore.
Of a pre-war Jewish population
of more than 79,000, perhaps
some 3,000 of Amsterdam's Jews
survived the war. Rabbi Levinson
therefore approached the Klau
Library in Cincinnati which ac-
cepted responsibility for the
documents and their proper care.
The documents were processed
and completely inventoried during
the 1970's, in part under a grant
from the National Endowment for
the Humanities. The processing
was completed in 1978, at which
time the documents were careful-
ly cleaned and moisturized. They
have since been housed in the
Klau Library under conditions of
controlled humidity and
temperature. A complete
microfilmed copy of the collection
has been retained by the college.

Update ... Opinion
Helping People
By TOBY F. WILK
Israel is marketing a puzzle
which its two student inven-
tors hope will be the successor
to the Rubic Cube that swept
the world. The new puzzle call-
ed the Do-do ring consists of
nine rings. The idea is to line
up the numbers and signs to
leave the resulting sum cor-
rect. It's not too easy. There is
only one correct solution out of
45 million possible
permutations.
Israel's rampant inflation
has led to shekelmania. The
new currency i3 bound to con-
fuse many Israelis, let alone
tourists, and will see some
Jewish and Zionist heroes
disappear from Israelis'
wallets. Among the best
known are Ze'ev Jabotinsky,
Theodor Herzl and David Ben-
Gurion.
The latest addition to
Israel's medical armoury is a
Lithotripter, an instrument
that crushes kidney stones
without need for a surgeon to
cut open the patient or per-
form any operation. The
machine delivers shock waves
with pinpoint precision to the
stones in the kidney, without
affecting any organ or tissue.
The stones are broken down
into small particles which then
pass out naturally from the
body.
The Davis Cup Tennis Tour-
nament was recently played in
the Ukranian City of Donetsk.
The Iron Curtain of the Soviet
Union was cracked when the
International Tennis Federa-
tion threatened to expel the
Soviet team unless the USSR
agreed to receive the Israeli
team. Soviet lack of sport-
smanship was evidenced by
their ignoring of protocol,
their bias during the game,
and their blackout of publicity
regarding the match.
Terrorism has become the
preferred mode of modern
armed conflict. For years, the
Airline Pilots Association has
argued that effective anti-
terrorist programs await ac-
tion by the UN. But UN action
against terrorism is an ox-
ymoron. The very States that
would be punished have the
votes to insure that it will
never happen.
A Brooklyn group of black
clergymen and Jewish Rabbis
met to improve Black-Jewish
relations by launching a cam-
paign to liberate Jewish
prisoners of conscience in the
Soviet Union and black
political prisoners in South
Africa and Haiti. Ministers will
ask their congregants to send
letters of support to these
prisoners of conscience.
Saudi Arabia holds $67
billion in U.S. investments,
and the number of Arab banks
operating in this country has
grown. Arab transactions are
not carried out on a strictly
business basis. Their money
comes with political strings at-
tached. Also, there is a grow-
ing tendency by large
American companies to use
their public relations budgets
and PAC monies to further the
interests of their Arab
customers. Saudi Arabia
believes that, in the future, the
road to Jerusalem runs
through Washington D.C.
What they can't win on the
battlefield, they hope to gain
by undermining the alliance
between the U.S. and Israel.
The UN declared 1985 the
International Year of the
Forest. This is appropriate
timing, with encroaching
deserts and famine threaten-
ing much of Africa. The Jewish
National Fund has planted
nearly 200 million trees in
Israel, replacing the forests
the Ottoman Turks destroyed.
Israel has frequently been
commended by the UN for its
afforestation in Israel and its
help in drought-ridden Africa.
When Israel's urban afforesta-
tion is completed, there will be
no town in Israel from which
you cannot reach a forest
within a ten minute drive.
Moses was the first
technological innovator when
he extracted water from a
rock. An experimental oil ex-
traction plant in the Negev will
generate electricity from shale
oil. Energy experts estimate
the plant could produce 10 per-
cent of the country's fuel
needs within a decade.
The Mayor of Jerusalem,
Teddy Kollek, was awarded
the German Peace Prize, con-
sidered to be second in impor-
tance only to the Nobel Prize.
In the past,.this prize has been
awarded to a scintillating ar-
ray of some of the world's
finest minds. Kollek is the se-
cond Israeli to have been
awarded it the first being
philosopher Martin Buber in
1953. Kollek is donating the
prize sum to the Jerusalem
Foundation.
In recent centuries, many
species of wildlife which in-
habited Israel since Biblical
times were exterminated. The
late Gen. Yoffe, first director
of Israel's Nature Reserves
Authority, proclaimed a "Se-
cond Law of Return." He sear-
ched the world for animal
species that once lived in the
Land of Israel. Some species
were diplomatically sensitive
acquisitions. The animals were
"taught" to be wild again.
Wild life biologists from
around the world visit Israel to
study the progress and techni-
ques of this successful
program.
Anti-Semitism is on the pro-
wl in Russia with a rage une-
qualled since Stalin.
Refuseniks and Prisoners of
Conscience are brutally beaten
in prisons as amused guards
stand by. Berenshtein was
blinded in a Soviet labor camp;
another POC had his ribs
broken in the Siberian Gulag.
There has been no word from
Scharansky since February.
Two and a half million lives are
at stake. The world community
must be aroused to bring
moral outrage to bear against
the brutalization of Soviet
Jews by the Soviet Union.
Denial of human rights must
be thrown on the trash heap of
history.
Forty years after Raoul
Wallenberg was arrested by
the Russians, Sweden has not
yet named a street or a square
in his honor. The Jewish com-
munities of Stockholm,
Gothenburg and Mai mo have
written to the Swedish govern-
ment suggesting that the
street in which the Stockholm
Great Synagogue is situated
be renamed after him. Mystery
still surrounds Wallenberg's
disappearance, despite
Moscow's claim he died in Lu-
bianka jail in 1947. Wallenberg
is the Swedish diplomat who
saved some 100,000 Jews dur-
ing the Nazi occupation of
Hungary.
Japan's "New Zionists"
honored Israeli children of Bar
Mitzvah age by planting trees
in the Jewish National Fund's
Mayuka Forest, part of
Jerusalem's Ramot Active
Recreation Park. The Mayuka
Movement was founded in
1948 by a Japanese scholar
and has thousands of followers
who regard themselves as
descendents of the lost Tribe
of Dan. Planting trees in the
Holy Land, they believe, binds
their younger generation to
Israel, and promotes world
peace.
Although there are no
diplomatic relations between
Israel and China, more than 60
Israeli firms are establishing
enterprises in China. Included
are an airfield, ten hotels,
solar energy plants and
agricultural developments in-
volving Israeli know-how and
Chinese manpower.
David Wistrum, Bonn cor-
respondent for Israeli TV, has
become the first Israeli TV
reporter since 1967 to receive
permission to work in the
Soviet Union. He was admit-
ted to the USSR on his Israeli
passport.
Arnold Greenberg, president
of Coleco Industries, pledged
one million dollars to the
University of Hartford to
establish an endowed Pro-
fessorship in Jewish Studies.
The University is organizing a
series of events devoted to the
Holocaust.

A personal view from the Ac-
ting Executive Director of the
Jewish Family and Children's
Service.
(All case names mentioned in
these articles are fictitious;
client information at Jewish
family and Children's Service
is held in the strictest of
confidence).
Despair. Dealing with clients
who suffer from it is a tough
thing for many counselors.
Clients who show no hope or
interest in the present or
future are a personal challenge
to the counselor, and can be a
tremendous burden to their
families.
Professionals frequently
define despair as depression.
When it can be associated with
the loss of a loved one, it's
defined as the process of mour-
ning. Whatever the definition,
the presence of a person who is
very sad, especially a person
who is cared about by the peo-
ple around him, can be the
source of one of life's greatest
frustrations.
The medical community is
becoming increasingly more
sophisticated in tracing some
sources of depression through
blood tests and genetic
research. And even when the
source of the depression can-
not be traced, more and more
cases of depression are respon-
ding to medications.
At JF and CS, many clients
presents themselves with the
symptoms of depression.
Those who are more severely
depressed, including people
with clear suicidal tendencies,
are routinely referred for
psychiatric care.
Those who are more mildly
depressed, or seem more con-
fused over life's decisions than
depressed, receive counseling.
Clients experiencing the pro-
cess of mourning the loss of a
loved one have the options of
individual or group counseling
at JF and CS (Our agency also
has a Caregivers Group, which
incorporates family members
of the depressed).
Professional staff members
of our agency deal with
depressed people of all ages,
whether it's an 80 year old dy-
ing of cancer, a 50 year old
mourning the loss of a child, or
a 30 year old dealing with a
world more complex than he is
emotionally equipped to
handle.
In addition to being
psychotherapists, it's very
tempting for me and others to
also become existentialists
when depressed clients
sometimes ask for help in fin-
ding meaning for "going on."
Viktor Frankl, a famous Vien-
nese psychiatrist and concen-
tration camp survivor, studied
this challenge and wrote a
number of books on this topic.
My own observation is that
people find happiness and
meaning in three spheres of
life: (1) personal relationships,
(2) meaningful work or activi-
ty, and (3) some form of
spiritual understanding,
whether it's traditional
religious thought and practice,
nontraditional religious
thought and practice, or just a
life philosophy.
Individuals who seem to in-
corporate some of each of
these three spheres in their
own life, in my experience,
seem to be the people most
likely to bounce back emo-
tionally from loss, trauma, or
confusing life circumstances.
This seems true regardless of
the degree of the problem, or
nature of the treatment, if
any.

-Sublet io prior uM
By JUDITH KOHN
(Washington)
And DAVID LANDAU
(Jerusalem)
The State Department
has announced that Assis-
tant Secretary of State
Richard Murphy met with
nine Palestinians from the
West Bank and Gaza Strip
but strongly played down
the significance of the
meeting held at the U.S.
Consulate in East
Jerusalem.
Department spokesman Ber-
nard Kalb called it "routine" and
cautioned "against reading any
new development" into the
meeting. He did not name the
Palestinian participants, saying
only that they are among the
"normal contacts" of the Con-
sulate in Jerusalem. He stressed
that the purpose of the meeting
was not to "screen candidates."
PRESUMABLY, he was referr
ing to Murphy's unsuccessful at-
tempt last summer to find Palesti-
nian representatives for a joint
Jordanian-Palestinian delegation
acceptable both to Israel and Jor-
dan. The attempt foundered over
King Hussein's insistance on in-
cluding Palestine Liberation
Organization figures on his pro-
posed list.
Kalb declined to comment on
whether any of the Palestinians
with whom Murphy met were on
the Jordanian list. He said the
purpose of the meeting was to
discuss a variety of issues, in-
cluding President Reagan's
meeting with Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev in Geneva last
month.
Murphy, who is Assistant
Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and South Asian Affairs,
arrived in Israel from Syria to
brief Premier Shimon Peres on his
latest contacts with Arab leaders.
He was accompanied by Wat
Claverius, the U.S. special envoy
to the Middle East.
THE STATE of Middle East
peace diplomacy is especially sen-
sitive at the present juncture, ac-
cording to Israeli officials, for
several reasons: Jordan and Syria
have recently started a process of
rapprochement after years of
estrangement; Jordan has given
PLO chief Yasir Arafat to unders-
tand that he must accept United
Nations Security Council resolu-
tions 242 and 338, the framework
of Mideast negotiations, by the
end of this year if he wants the
PLO to have any role in future
peace talks.
Israelis are wary of Jordan's
overtures to Damascus. Some
observers see in them a deter-
mination by King Hussein to
weaken the position of Arafat who
has long been at odds with the
Syrian regime. At the same time,
it is feared in Jerusalem that by
coming closer to Syria's President
Hafez Assad, a hardline leader of
the rejectionist camp, Jordan's
own position toward possible
negotiations with Israel may
harden.
Israeli officials do not expect
Arafat to conform to Hussein's
urgings to accept the two key UN
resolutions. They believe that
Hussein would then feel freer to
draw up his own list of Palestinian
representatives on a joint delega-
tion which would meet first with
American officials and then with
Israel.
A spokesman for Peres said
Murphy informed the Premier
that Hussein is determined to win
approval of a joint Jordanian-
Palestinian delegation to
negotiate with Israel. Murphy also
briefed Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir.
JTA Services
Thumbs Down
On $10 Million
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
Knesset Finance Committee turn-
ed thumbs down recently on a $10
million allocation to Histadrut's
sick-fund, Kupat Holim, which the
Cabinet approved over
the objections of Finance Minister
Yitzhak Modai to relieve the
financial crisis in the country's
hospitals.
The committee withheld ap-
proval because it was not satisfied
with explanations of how the
money would be used. Kupat
Holim, with a serious cash flow
problem, has been unable to pay
for patients' services for which it
has been billed.
The same problem has affected
other sick funds, with the result
that Israel's public hospitals can-
not meet bills long outstanding
and may be forced to curtail ser-
vices and possibly shut down.

Purpose
The Jewish Community Day
School is dedicated to pro-
viding each of our students
with an excellent general and
Jewish education within the
framework of a pervasively
Jewish environment.
Through coordinated staff
effort, we implement pro-
grams that stress knowledge
acquisition, information pro-
cessing social interaction, and
personal development in an in-
tegrated educational
framework. Developing the
"whole" child, intellectually,
emotionally, socially, physical-
ly, and spiritually, is our prin-
cipal concern.
At the Jewish Community
Day School students acquire
the knowledge and skills and
develop the attitudes they will
need for creative and construc-
tive life long membership in
American society and in the
Jewish community.
Our major emphasis is on
helping oar students take
their places as productive
and responsible members of
American society and of the
Jewish community. We are
continuously encouraged
about the future of American
Jewry as we see the progress
of our students in the pre-
sent. The quality of
American Jewish life in the
21th century in large part
depends on the educational
experiences of our children
today." Barbara
Steinberg, executive director
of the JCDS.
"We are building the
Jewish leaders for the com-
ing decades by following the
traditional concept that
Jewish survival is achieved
through Jewish education."

Our school day is divided
between general studies and
Jewish studies. The goals of
the two curricular programs
are mutually enhancing, em-
phasizing language develop-
ment, thinking and problem
solving skills, utilizing group
and individualized learning
experiences.
With the advent of the
knowledge explosion it has
become imperative that to-
day's children develop the
ability to question, reason.
hypothesize, formulate and
seek solutions to problems;
factual recall knowledge alone
will not suffice.
Hebrew is taught as a living
language, utilizing the immer-
sion approach. Prayer, Jewish
life and Jewish Social Studies,
including units about Diaspora
life and Israel, are also taught.
Integrated in both the
general and Jewish studies are
courses in art, music, physical
education, library skills (K-3)
and computer science (4-8).
Life at the JCDS is imbued
with the values of modern
Judaism, among which are the
mitzvot of Tzedakah,
charitable giving, and Gemilut
Hasadim, or community in-
volvement. Each grade makes
its own decisions regarding
the distribution of the
Tzedakah that is collected and
participates in special pro-
grams at holiday times to
enrich the celebrations of com-
munity groups.
Students in the sixth and
seventh grades are par-
ticipating on a regular basis in

This year marks the Bar
Mitzvah year of the Jewish
Community Day School. Plans
have been underway since last
spring to celebrate this
milestone in the school's
history. Included in the plans
are Shabbat services, a Dinner
Dance and a Commemorative
Journal.
The services will be held on
Friday and Saturday. March
28 and 29, 1986, in the Merkaz.
Each grade will be leading dif-
ferent portions of the services,
and the entire Jewish com-
munity is invited.
Saturday evening, March 29,
the school will hold a Dinner
Dance at the Hyatt Palm
Beaches.
A Commemorative Journal
which will give a detailed
history of the school and con-
tain ads and messages of con-
gratulations to the school, is in
the process of being published.

degrees of Jewish observance.
These differences, as well as
the unifying concepts and
themes that bring Jews
together, are stressed to
degrees appropriate to each
grade level.
Jewish history is brought to

International Terrorism Can Strike Us Here;
Panel of Experts Detail Domestic Vulnerability
By ERIC MOSS
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Scenario: You're enjoy-
ing lunch with several
business associates at an
outdoor cafe. Suddenly, an
inconspicuous station
wagon pulls up to the curb
and with shouts of "Death
to the Zionist pigs," the oc-
cupants leap out, firing
automatic weapons.
Not here?'
Wrong!
According to the panelists at a
conference on "International Ter-
rorism: Threats and Responses,"
held at the Knight Center in
dowtown Miami recently,
unless governments act now, and
with a coordinated effort to com-
bat terrorism, incidents like the
scenario above will become more
common.
THE CONFERENCE, spon-
sored jointly by the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith and the University of
Miami's Graduate School of Inter-
national Studies, included such
topics as, ''Domestic
Vulnerabilities," "National
Emergency Management," and
"The Soviet Role." Speakers in-
cluded experts in the fields of
counterterrorism, law and human
rights.
"It's easy to understand the in-
ability of governments to act
when there's not even a common
definition of terrorism," said J.
Robert McBrien of the U.S.
Treasury Department. "We have
to remember that terrorism is
theater of the first order."
Prof. Yoram Dinstein of Tel
Aviv University believes that ter-
rorism is "any significant act of
violence intended to instill fear in
the victim or someone else." But,
he blames the press for helping in-
still that fear. "The media are a
major problem where terrorism is
concerned," he said. "Not every
terrorist is motivated by his con-
cept of immortality, but by the
prospect of two minutes on the 7
o'clock news."
CENSORSHIP.as unsavory as
it seems, could be part of the
answer. "The time may come,"
Prof. Dinstein said, "when we
may have to impose some degree
of censorship. After all, in war-
fare, censorship is considered to
be legitimate. Right now, we're
involved in a war of survival and
fighting a battle for public
opinion."
"The terrorist's intention is to
shock and stun," said the
Treasury Department's McBrien.
"Their effect actually goes
beyond destruction because of
their ability to manipulate the
media."
While nearly every speaker at-
tempted to define "terrorism,"
few offered real solutions to the
problem. Most of the discussion
centered around the speakers'
main themes; several presenta-
tions were purely Socratic ques-
tion followed by another question.
"WHAT DO we mean by 'na-
tional security?' asked Louis 0.
Giuffrida, former director of the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency. "How can we talk about
threats to our national security if
we can't even reach a consensus
on the definition?"
When FEMA was first organiz-
ed from elements of several dif-
ferent agencies in the federal
government, the first task was to
assemble a list of emergencies the
agency would have to manage.
Under the heading "floods," a list
of needs to handle that particular
kind of emergency was created,
along with similar lists for earth-
quakes, nuclear power plants, and
others. Surprisingly, "their re-
quirements were virtually the
same," Giuffrida said, as for
counter terrorism.
After installing a new internal
emergency management system,
the agency then undertook
responsibility for creating a chain
of emergency operations centers
across the country, and upgrading
the communications links between
them by requiring use of a com-
mon vocabulary.
"ONE THING we found distur-
bing," said Giuffrida. "Our plans
at nuclear power plants were
organized around the concept of
getting the terrorist out after the
incursion had already taken place.
We had to shift our thinking to
prepare for denying the terrorist
access in the first place. The key
to that is intelligence."
Yonah Alexander, senior
member of Georgetown Univer-
sity's Center for Strategic and In-
ternational Studies, and one of the
world's most prolific authors on
the subject of terrorism, said im-
proved intelligence is one of three
major steps needed to defeat the
threat.
"In addition to that," he said,
"We need to see stronger govern-
mental responses to the terrorist,
as well as greater cooperation
among governments to legally
deal with the terrorist." Alex-
Meinhoff gang is not loss of lift]
but loss of alliances."
PROF. DINSTEIN claims L
because all terrorist organizatiiL
are intertwined, each helps to in
sure the success of another]
"These people are only interested!
in killing for the sake of killing/l
he said. "Their motto is, 'I Irilll
'Promise them anything, give them
Arpege, then drown them in itf
ander noted the escalating trend
of terrorist incidents, and pointed
to several reasons: expressions of
revolutionary fervor (Nicaragua),
religious fanaticism (Iran),
"narco-terrori8m" (Colombia),
and the presence of an interna-
tional terrorist network, funded
by the Palestine Liberation
Organization's billion-dollar-per-
year investment program.
GATHERING intelligence on
the international terrorist is ex-
tremely difficult, according to Joel
Lisker, general counsel to the
U.S. Senate's Sub-Committee on
Terrorism and Security. "For one
thing,' he said, "this is a problem
of global proportions. We've
found it very hard penetrating
Arabic-speaking terrorist units
simply because there are so few
people in the United States who
are able to speak the language."
One area vital to U.S. interests
is South Africa, supplier of 86 per-
cent of the world's platinum and
95 percent of the chromium, both
metals critical to U.S. industries.
Yet, Lisker said, the West has
allowed communists to infiltrate
the leadership of organizations
like the African National Con-
gress and the South West African
People's Organization, both of
which are dedicated to violent
overthrow of the Botha regime.
Another area of importance to
U.S. interests is Europe, where
terrorist bomgings are geared
toward disrupting NATO. "The
issue for someone in the Baader-
therefore I exist.' They can onlyl
be fought by an equal coordination I
of effort, a collaboration against |
terrorists everywhere."
Dinstein, whose hardline speech]
was warmly received, was one (
the few who offered specific sug-l
gestions on how to control thel
level of terrorism throughout the|
world. The Tel Aviv Universit]
expert's recommendations includ-l
ed imposing economic sanctions]
on nations that directly or '
directly support terrorism. LiBji
for example, supplies direct sup-1
port, while Greece allows the air-|
port at Athens to remain ac-
cessable to weapon-bearing ter-1
rorist accomplices. "Why doesl
Greece allow this?" he asked. "It's |
simple. Greece remains the only
leftist government in NATO."
Legally, extradition pro-
ceedings are often denied by
governments that provide indin?'
terrorist support. This has to
cease, according to Prof. Dinstein.
"We have got to be able to pro-
secute these cases to conviction
and ultimately take away what
these people see as benefits of
their action."
ON THE SUBJECT of negotia-
tion with terrorists, Dinstein
became more forceful. "It is
unheard of to make agreements
with terrorists. Take the agree-
ment with Iran to defreeze their
assets in exchange for release of
the hostages. This agreement's

After the war, Stangl and his
leputy at Treblinka, Gustav
jjuiz Wagner, made their way to
tome to connect with the
fVatican route" to South
erica. In Rome they learned
it Syria was recruiting German
Beers to train its army, so both
went first to Damascus and
to Beirut.

i to Germany, he was sentenced

1900,000 people at Treblinka.
I Gustav Franz Wagner served as
Tnwwndanf. of Sobibor concen-

M
w director of the Latin
him "the human beast." Sobibor
was different from other concen-
tration camps because it had no
work facilities. It has been
described as "a killing machine"
where men, women and children
were gassed within hours after be-
ing herded off arriving trains.
A monument, ten feet tall, now
at Sobibor, commemorates "the
250,000 Russian, Polish, Jewish
and Gypsy prisoners murdered in
this place from May 1942 until Oc-
tober, 1943."
SURVIVORS of Sobibor have
testified that Wagner personally
joined in the slaughter, on one oc-
casion splitting a man's head with
a shovel.
"When he killed, he smiled,"
said one former inmate.
Wagner lived inconspicuously
and did not think a pseudonym
necessary when he entered Brazil
in 1952. Although Franz Stangl
disclosed, during his 1970 trial,
that Wagner was living in Brazil,
Brazilian authorities made no ef-
fort to apprehend him.
Wagner was arrested belatedly
in 1978, in the wake of publicity
surrounding the Nazi meeting at
the Hotel Tyll. Justice, however,
was denied by the Brazilian
Supreme Court which blocked ex-
tradition requests by four coun-
tries. The court based its ruling on
a technical error in translation of
a court document, even though
Wagner had confessed his guilt.
Wagner committed suicide at
his farm in October, 1980.
HERBERT CUKURS was
responsible for the massacre of
32,000 Latvian Jews in 1941. Col-
umnist Jack Anderson reported
that eyewitnesses described
Cukurs as "strutting about in a
black leather coat, brandishing a
pistol" as Jews were brutalized
and murdered. He also barricaded
some Jews in their synagogue
where they were burned alive.
Cukurs arrived in Rio de Janeiro
in 1946. After he was identified in
1949 as the man responsible for
the mass killing of Jews in Riga,
the Jewish Federation of Rio de
Janeiro presented Brazilian
authorities with sworn statements
by survivors about Cukurs' war
crimes and demanded that he be
expelled. The government refused
because he had fathered a child
born in Brazil.

were able to accomplish was to

Cukurs'body was found stuffed
in a trunk in a beach house in
Montevideo, Uruguay in 1965
where he reportedly had been

Killers left a note pinned to his
leather jacket which said, "The

THE NAZIS' main base is in
southern Brazil in the states of
Rio Grande do Sul, Santa
Catanna and Parana which
border on Paraguay, Argentina
and Uruguay. German immigra-
tion to this part of Brazil began
about 1825 and continued in in-
creasingly large numbers; by
1940, it totaled more than one
million. So dominant is the Ger-
man influence in the region that
even today that language is the
vernacular in many cities.
Nazi bund groups sprang up in
Brazil in the 1930s. In the early
1940s, a large number of pro-
sperous German businessmen
moved to Brazil from other coun-
tries in Latin America. The
reason? The size of the country
made it more difficult for
authorities to keep an effective
check on them.
The United States Charge d'Af-
faires in Brazil, William C.
Burdett, in a memo to the State
Department in January, 1941,
reported that the Brazilian state
of Santa Catarina was "the head-
quarters of the Nazi organization

told of an extremely effective Nazi
network throughout Brazil,

On U.S. Tour
Perlmutter Speaks On Negev's Transformation
"If you don't believe in
miracles, you're not a realist,"
said David Ben Gurion. His
statement applies to Israel's
Negev desert, where a land
once seen as unyielding is now
the home to thriving
agricultural communities.
Those pioneering individuals
who faced the challenges of
the arid Negev knew that hard
work and determination could
result in the miraculous.
Menachem Perlmutter, the
Jewish Agency's director of
the engineering section of the
Department of Settlements for
the Negev, is one prominent
miracle worker. Extending
Ben Gurion's philosophy,
Perlmutter states that "We've
proved that the impossible is
possible it just takes a little
longer."
Perlmutter has worked for
over 30 years in overseeing the
infrastructure of all the rural
settlements in the Negev,
which comprises 65 percent of
Israel's surface. He was on a
nation-wide visit of the United
States this past month on
behalf of the Jewish National
Fund, the organization respon-
sible for afforestation and land
reclamation in Israel. His trip
took him to major cities across
the U.S., where he met with
the Assistant to the U.S.
Secretary of Natural
Resources in Washington,
D.C., participated in radio and
television interviews, and
spoke to hundreds of in-
dividuals and groups about
Israel's accomplishments in
creating a fertile Negev and
JNF's role in this undertaking.
He recalls the year 1945,
when the British said that the
Negev's Arava area, along the
border with Jordan, was
"uninhabitable." Since then,
11 kibbutzim, 10 moshavim,
and two rural centers have
been established in the area.
Today, in the entire Negev,
where the population was
18,000 in 1948 with a total of
26 rural settlements, there are
now 445,000 Jews and 55,000
Bedouins, with a total of 11
cities and more than 270 rural
settlements.
This astounding growth rate
reflects the agricultural
strides Israel has made in the
Negev, in spite of the area's
lack of soil, acute shortage of
water, and climate of ex-
tremes. Perlmutter proudly
points out these strides:
Record yields in cotton which
outdistance those of Califor-
nia, Arizona, and Egypt; yields
in peanuts that are three to
four times higher than
Georgia's and West Virginia's;
new varieties of fruits and
vegetables, including a tomato
with a shelf life of four weeks;
the development of
genetically-engineered crops;
and tomatos, melons and
strawberries which are in
great demand in Europe, pro-
mpting Perlmutter to call the
Negev "Europe's winter
vegetable basket."
The first Young Adult Division meeting was attended by 40
enthusiastic members of the local community.

products.
Savidor also called the
burgeoning high-tech in-
dustries in Israel "a glowing
testament to the potential that
exists in our country."
In concluding his prepared
remarks Savidor said, "I want
you to know that you should
take pride in having a chance
to be committed to a people
and a culture which extends
out for millenia."
While fielding questions
from the audience, Savidor ad-
dressed the issues of political
factionalism in Israel and the
omnipresent "Palestinian
Problem."
Remarking on the apparent
appeal of rightwing, extremist
groups among Israel's young
people, Savidor admitted that
it is a "serious problem."
But he went on to say that
"only a bipartisan national uni-
ty government can solve the
social and economic problem of
Israel. I predict that Kahane's
party and similar movements
will be outlawed in the next
election. Democracy must de-
fend itself by obeying the deci-
sions of the majority and
respecting the rights of the
minorities."
Turning to the topic of Mid-
dle East peace, Savidor said,
"There is no other country in
the world that desires peace as
Israel does. Hussein will find
Israel a generous and
magnanimous partner at the
negotiating table," he added,
"but we cannot, shall not,
forego our military presence in
the West Bank."
"If the Palestinians abjure
violence and terrorism, a solu-
tion can be hammered out,"
Savidor concluded.

Perlmutter proves Israel's
agricultural efficiency by
noting that one agricultural
employee produces food for 55
persons. Israel is self-
sufficient for 94 percent of its
food, and it exports 46 percent
of the total production, which
is the highest exportation rate
in the world. Agriculture,
therefore, has a tremendous
impact on Israel's economy.
He also points out that "Ex-
perts from the UN felt that a
country so poor in land and
water would need a whole
generation to double its food
production. During one
generation, though, Israel in-
creased its food production
12-fold."
Israeli innovations such as
drip irrigation are responsible
for the 400 percent increase in
agricultural productivity over
the past 15 years, Perlmutter
adds. He explains that the
technology reduces the
amount of water needed by
feeding plants and crops
directly at the roots.
Two-thirds of Israel's water
supply is located in the North,
and in the South much of it is
brackish (salty). "In a good
year," Perlmutter continues,
"we get eight to ten inches of
rain in Beersh ba, and less
than one inch in the Arava."
The water-sparing system is
used with brackish water and
sandy soil in the production of
salt tolerant crops. He reports
that Israeli technicians in
Palo mar Ranch, Arizona, are
installing the fourth-largest
drip irrigation system in the
world, covering 106,000 acres.
"Farmers will double, even tri-
ple their yield," he asserts.
Israel's agricultural ad-
vances are also benefitting the
Third World. Perlmutter
relates that a group of Third
World leaders told him that
hunger is a greater threat in
their countries than the A
Bomb. "Israel's technicians,"
he says, "are working in 52
countries around the world,
many of which do not have
diplomatic relations with us.
Our expertise is being offered
in many countries in Asia,
Africa, and Central Latin
America, where the need to in-
crease food yields is so
critical." By the year 2000, he
says, there will be two billion
more people on earth, with 97
percent of this growth coming
from the Third World.
Perlmutter, a survivor of
Auschwitz, has spent the past
several decades promoting the
flourishing of the Negev, so
that it may provide sustenance

for his people and serve as
source of hope and knowledge
for other nations. "Israel of-
fers a great message for a
hungry world," he contends,
"since it has shown how to ex-
ploit arid land and scanty,
brackish water, the same con-
ditions which exist in most
Third World countries. Some-
day, people will understand
Israel's peaceful
achievement."
m Perlmutter asserts that
"JNF is an essential compo-
nent in the development of the
Negev and of rural set-
tlements." The sophisticated,
computerized irrigation
method used in the Negev
must be preceded by JNF's
professional land reclamation
methods, he continues. He
points out that flash floods in
the desert can be devastating-
for example, the one inch of
rain that falls in the desert in a
year can sometimes fall in a
few minutes. Therefore, the
ditches that JNF builds are
critical. He notes that the
trees that JNF plants break
the fierce desert wind velocity
and preserve the soil, "flan-
ting a tree, in the long run, is j
critically important for
stabilizing the soil," states
Perlmutter. "In fact, erosion
can be more devastating to the
countryside than war!"
Perlmutter movingly re-
counts the spiritual journey he
has made through working the
land: "I am a Jew, a survivor
of Auschwitz. I have a number
on my left arm. When I emerg-
ed from the ashes, I was just
like the dry bones which the
prophet Ezekiel spoke of. But I
have been reinvigorated with
life through my 33 years ot
work for the Jewish National
Fund and the Jewish Agency."
In this way, Perlmutter is
emblematic of a song of the
early pioneers in Israel, which
went, "We came to build the
land, and to be rebuilt by it."
He has been an active partici-
pant in this rebuilding, and he
tells potential visitors to Israel
to visit the Negev and
remember the prophecy of
Isaiah: "And the desert shall
rejoice and blossom like a
rose.' "

I Semitic literature with swastikas
and photos of Hitler.
Winkelmann, a member of a
German spy network in the 1940s,
was convicted by a Brazilian court
and sentenced to two years in jail.
After the Itatiaia meeting,
Winkelmann told reporters for
the newspaper 0 Estado de Sao
Paulo (April 26, 1978) that "The
IV Reich is our dream and our ma-
jor objective. They killed Hitler,
but they will never kill his
philosophy, which is ours."
THE MASSIVE outburst of
anti-Semitic demonstrations in
the wake of Gustav Franz
Wagner's arrest in 1978 is even
more dramatic proof that Nazism
is still a vital and popular force in
the heartland of German-Brazil.
Given the large German popula-
tion and the popularity of Nazism
among them, the attitude of
Brazilian authorities toward this
anti-democratic menace is crucial.
During World War II, the govern-
ment investigated the Nazi net-
work, which included many Ger-
man cultural and social institu-
tions. One measure to control pro-
Nazi activities imposed restric-
tions on German schools.
Yad Vashem Gathering Reports $5.1 Million
Raised For Plans
I NEW YORK (JTA) More than $5.1 million has been
raised toward a goal of $12 million for ongoing and new
programs of the Yad Vashem, the memorial in Israel to the
victims of the Holocaust.
That announcement was made at the first dinner of the
International Society for Yad Vashem, set up here three
years ago to serve as the educational and development arm
of the Yad Vashem on the Mount of Remembrance in
Jerusalem.
Eli Zborowski, head of the organization's American divi-
sion, received a special citation the first Remembrance
Award of Yad Vashem, honoring him "for his historic
achievements worldwide in engraving upon the conscience
of the world the lessons of the Holocaust and the need for
remembrance."

of Beit Shemesh, not far from

Mubarak's 'Warm' Message
Raises Cautious Optimism
German propaganda activity,
well financed and very extensive,
was carefully monitored, and
several German spy rings were
broken up. However, the govern-
ment was reluctant to take more
severe measures because of the
vital role which Germans, par-
ticularly those living in the South,
played in the nation's economy.
Since the war, the Brazilian
government has shown little in-
terest in curbing or investigating
Nazi activities. The official reac-
tion to the Itatiaia meeting and
the outburst of anti-Semitism that
followed Wagner's arrest was
particularly troubling to Brazil's
Jewish community of approx-
imately 150,000.
MUNICIPAL and state officials
in Rio Grande do Sul largely dis-
counted the seriousness of the
situation and federal officials
were also reluctant to attach im-
portance to the renascent Nazi
activity.
O Estado de Sao Paulo reported
on April 25, 1978 that in Brasilia,
the capital, the Nazi meeting was
viewed "without surprise"
because right wing governments
have such dread of Communism
that "they fall into the arms" of
the opposite ideology Nazism
and fascism.
Colonel Rubin Ludwig,
spokesman for President Ernesto
Geisel, told reporters that the
Itatiaia meeting would not be
brought to the President's atten-
tion unless the matter became
more serious, dismissing it as
"nothing more than a get-
together of nostalgic old men."
Mayor Antonio Carlos Borges of
Santa Rosa audaciously suggested
that Jews may be responsible for
the manifestations of Nazism "to
strengthen the defense of the
Jewish people."
AFTER THE war, thousands of
SS officers, Gestapo members and
other Nazis fled to Brazil. Stangl,
Wagner. Cukurs and Menerele are
but four brought to the surface.
Other Nazis have found shelter in
the vastness of Brazil and the
fraternal intimacy of large Ger-
man communities.
The restoration of democratic
government this year, after 21
years of military rule, coupled
with the publicity surrounding the
Mengele case, create an oppor-
tune moment for authorities to
rout the Nazis from Brazil. The
United States experience may
serve as a useful model. After
decades of similar indifference,
the Justice Department establish-
ed the Office of Special Investiga-
tions (OSI) which has been in-
strumental in locating, bringing to
trial and deporting Nazi war
criminals.

By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
President Hosni Mubarak's
latest message to Premier
Shimon Peres has raised ge-
nuine, if cautious optimism,
here, that Israeli-Egyptian
relations will soon be
significantly improved.
The message was delivered to
Peres by Egypt's Oil Minister, Ab-
President Mubarak
dul Hadi Kandil, who came here
on a two-day official visit. Its con-
tents were released on the eve of
the departure for Cairo of a high
level Israeli delegation to resume
talks with Egypt over the Taba
border dispute.
The message, warm and friend-
ly in tone, dealt with the peace
process, bilateral issues and the
murder of seven Israeli tourists at
Ras Burka in Sinai in October by
an alleged berserk Egyptian
policeman.
FOUR OF the victims were
children, and passions are still
running high in Israel because of
allegations the Egyptian
authorities were tardy in pro-
viding medical help and because
their official investigation is still
not completed.
Mubarak expressed understan-
ding of Israeli anger. He termed
the crime a deviant act that did
not reflect the feelings of the
Egyptian people. He said the in-
vestigation is being pursued inten-
sively, and if there has been a
paucity of details it was only to
avoid interference with the
judicial process which he hoped
would be completed shortly.
Mubarak said he hoped the
Israelis would not judge the Ras
Burka tragedy simplistically. He
added that it was important for
Egypt to preserve its tradition of
safeguarding its guests.
THE EGYPTIAN President
had warm words for Israel's peace
efforts. He said he was aware of
Israel's opposition to inclusion of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization in peace talks but
was convinced that PLO Chief
Yasir Arafat understands he must
take a stand against terrorism.
According to Mubarak, the
chances for regional peace have
improved because certain parties
who did not accept the idea of co-
existence with Israel have recent-
ly moved in that direction. He
hoped bilateral relations with
Israel would improve, though they
have not as yet, and noted that the
Taba talks are about to be resum-
ed after a long hiatus.
The Israeli view here is that the
new round of talks will take place
under much more auspicious cir-
cumstances in light of Mubarak's
letter to Peres.
THE ISRAELI negotiating
team which went to Cairo consists
of Gen. Avraham Tamir, director
general of the Prime Minister's
Office; David Kimche, director
general of the Foreign Ministry;
and Dov Sion, of the Defense
Ministry.
Kimche recently accused Egypt
publicly of some 40 violations of
the 1979 peace treaty clauses
delaing with the normalization of
relations between Egypt and
Israel.
Normal relations and the Ras
Burka killings are the first items
on the agenda of the Cairo talks.
They were to be followed by the
Taba border dispute. The Israeli
delegation is itself divided on that
issue. The Prime Minister's Of-
fice, representing Labor Party
views, is willing to accept Egypt's
demand for arbitration. The
Foreign Ministry, controlled by
Likud, insists that conciliation
must be given a serious try, with
arbitration only a last resort.
With respect to the Ras Burka
affairs, Sion is scheduled to con-
sult with Egyptian Gen. Tarek
Labib on procedures for the
evacuation of Israeli tourists from
Sinai in cases of emergency or
serious accidents. Israel has pro-
posed that evacuation in such in-
stances should be coordinated
with the Multinational Force in
Sinai.

I Bookcase
About Yael's Father And Herself
Friday, December 20, 1985/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 17
By MORTON I. TEICHER
|y. Father, Hii Daughter. By
Vtel Dayan. New York: Far-
fir Straus and Giroux, 1985.
289 pp. $17.96.
An accomplished writer with
Loral fine books to her credit,
Ivael Dayan has beautifully
lemonstrated her literary talents
i this excellent book. She has ac-
mplished the unusual feat of
mbining a penetrating
ILrraphy of her father, Moshe
loiyan. with a revealing
Ltobiography and a perceptive
Idescription of their difficult rela-
loonship to each other.
She has also managed to include
(distinctive portraits of her
I mother, her step-mother, her
(grandparents and her two
I brothers. All of this is achieved in
jTtyle that is disarmingly direct
I simple.
THE BOOK opens with a
Idescription of Moshe Dayan's
I death and funeral in 1981. These
I events are plainly set forth in
Israightfoward fashion, but the
[narration can take its place with
Iother literary references to death.
I It can rank alongside Tennyson's
I poem on the death of King Ar-
thur. Tolstoy's short story, "The
SUBJECT
ath of Ivan Ilych" and Thomas
|lolfe's eloquent accounts of the
ath of his father and his
other, Ben.
Death is a perennial subject in
erature, and each author puts
or her own stamp on the
fcfigA. Yael Dayan's imprint is
and clean. It moves us with
Iks honesty and its lack of
|domment.
Although she returns to Moshe
Dayan's death and its conse-
Iquences at the end of the book, the
liuthor moves easily from beginn-
lingat the end of his life to Dayan's
|actual beginnings and roots.
MOSHE DAYAN'S parents
lll came to Palestine from
"* Bia were among the founders
the first kibbutz, Dagania,
[where Dayan was born. When he
*as six years old, the family mov-
ed to Nahalal to help establish a
Imoshav which retained some of
I the cooperative features of the
kibbutz but which afforded oppor-
tunities for privacy and individual
ownership. Dayan lived in other
Places, but Nahalal was always
home, and that is where he is
I buried.
Dayan's life before the rebirth
I of Israel is traced through his join-
tthe Haganah at the age of 14,
i marriage to Ruth, his training
^*ith Wingate, the birth of Yael
nd her brothers, his imprison-
ment by the British, his participa-
tion in the invasion of Syria where
lost an eye, the first of many
[urn.s to Nahalal, his service at
"aganah headquarters, his elec-
tion as a delegate to the Zionist
Congress in 1946 in Basel and his
Jjsomplishments in the Israeli
"&r of Independence where he
AUTHOR
became Ben-Gurion's favorite
general.
After the War of Independence,
Dayan was a commander in the ar-
my, eventually being appointed
Chief of Staff of Israel's Armed
Forces. In 1959, Dayan entered
politics, and for most of the rest of
his life, he was a cabinet minister
and a member of the Knesset.
HE SERVED as Minister of
Defense and as Minister of
Foreign Affairs. In this latter
capacity, he played an influential
part in the Camp David negotia-
tions. This did not completely
make up for his role in the Yom
Kippur War, and eventually, the
cabinet of which he was a member
under Golda Meir, was forced to
resign.
Strewn throughout the stories
of war, government service and
archaeological collecting are clues
of stormy father-daughter rela-
tionships, many of them con-
nected to Dayan's incessant
philandering. The daughter
reiterates her love for her father
and his love for her, but these
come across as overly loud
protestations.
They fail to prepare the reader
for the stinging bitterness which
was evoked by Dayan's last will
and testament. After many affairs
with "vulgar women," as his
daughter calls them, Dayan finally
divorced his wife and married
Rahel to whom he willed
everything except for a small
piece of land and a half-interest in
an apartment. Apparently, there
was a sizeable estate, built up by
lecture fees, book royalties and
profits from selling archaeological
artifacts.
NO MONEY was left to the
three children nor to Dayan's first
wife. Consideration was given by
them to contesting the will, but
this was rejected, and lawyers
finally worked out a settlement
that did not ease the anger and
resentment. Udi, the older of
Dayan's two sons, wrote a "Let-
ter to a Dead Father" in which he
spoke hatefully of Dayan's
"greed, his lust for third-rate
women ... his craving for fame
and publicity, his translating
ideals into hard cash and his im-
morality." Similarly, Yael accuses
her father of being "miserly,"
obsessed with money and of
leading a "petty, pseudo-
sophisticated life."
There is no denying that Dayan
was an important statesman and a
military hero. He lived for 33
years after the State of Israel was
reborn, and he was a significant
participant in the events of those
years, often making crucial con-
tributions to shaping those
events. This book exposes many of
his personal frailties and raises
the question of whether he and
David Ben-Gurion were correct in
their insistence that one's private
life and morals are nobody's
business.
When Dayan's first wife, Ruth,
appealed to Ben-Gurion because
of her husband's constant extra-
marital relationships, Ben-
Gurion's response was that her
husband was going to be a na-
tional leader and that "his record
in bed was not going to stand in
his way."
THE FACT is, however, that
for whatever reason, Dayan never
became Prime Minister. Should
one accused of personal immorali-
ty be permitted to capture the
highest position in his country?
More than enough information is
provided in this book to enable its
readers to deal with this question.
Cancer Researcher Had
Orthodox Upbringing
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Dr. Steven Rosenberg, head of
the research team at the Na-
tional Cancer Institute in
Bethesda, Md., credited with a
major breakthrough in the
treatment of malignant
tumors, had an Orthodox
Jewish upbringing in The
Bronx and is a member, with
his wife Alice, of Beth-El
Synagogue, a Conservative
congregation in Bethesda
where the oldest of his three
daughters, Beth, was Bat
Mitzvah last year.
Rosenberg's parents,
Abraham and Harriet
Rosenberg, have been
residents of Israel for the last
12 years. They are 86 and 80
years of age, respectively, and
see their son on his visits to
Israel at least once a year.
These trips have kept the
familiar bond intact despite
the distance separating
parents and son Rosenberg
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency in a telephone
interview.
HE CAME to media pro-
minence last summer as
spokesman for the medical
team that operated on Presi-
dent Reagan for cancer of the
colon. He broke into the news
again last week when the In-
stitute announced dramatic
results achieved by using
genetically engineered protein
to kill cancer cells.
The process, which is com-
plex and still in the experimen-
tal stage, is based on enhanc-
ing the body's immune system
so that it produces "killer
cells" which attack some
forms of cancer.
The Institute announced
Dec. 4 that Rosenberg's
technique had achieved a
remarkable rate of success,
reducing by over 50 percent
the size of tumors in 11 of 25
patients with terminal cancer.
The patients were too far gone
to respond to radiation,
chemotherapy or surgery. In
the case of one, all traces of
cancer were eliminated.
But the treatment appears
to have severe side effects for
some, which are still under
study. The American Cancer
Society said the protein treat-
ment success rate was higher
than any other to date.
Rabbis Opt
For Jail Term
WASHINGTON Rejec-
ting the choice of lesser
penalties, five Maryland rabbis
were sentenced to 15 days in
jail last week for illegally
demonstrating outside the
Soviet Embassy on May 1.
Rabbis Harold Bayar,
Leonard Cahan, Bruce Kahn,
Mark Levine and David Oler
refused to accept the option of
sue months o* unsupervised
probation that went along with
a $50 fine imposed by Judge
Kollar-Kotelly of the District
of Columbia Superior Court.
"This is an act of solidarity
with Soviet Jews," Rabbi
David Oler told the Associated
Press. "The Hebrew teachers
who are being sent to the
Gulag do not have choice;
we're willing to go to jail as an
act of conscience."
Out of the thousands of pro-
testers arrested in recent
demonstrations at embassies
in Washington, the rabbis are
the first to go to jail.
Judge Kollar-Kotelly re-
jected a request to release the
rabbis on bond pending appeal
of their conviction.
Henry Asbill, attorney for
the rabbis, has argued that
they are being prosecuted
selectively, since the case
against his clients has proceed-
ed apace while charges against
anti-apartheid protesters ar-
rested at the South African
embassy are routinely
dropped.

1986 Curacao Jewish Festival Combines
Culture and Caribbean Vacation
The 1986 Curacao Jewish
Festival offers the opportunity to
combine a joyous cultural renewal
with one of the most historic
Jewish communities in the
western hemisphere and a fun-
filled vacation at the height of the
Caribbean winter season.
This unique program, to be con-
ducted Jan. 5 through 23, was
organized by the Curacao Tourist
Board in cooperation with five na-
tional Jewish organizations, the
government of Curacao and the
island's Jewish community.
The focal points of this in-
augural Festival will be religious
services and a reception hosted by
the Curacao Jewish Community at
the Mikve-Israel Synagogue,
oldest in the western hemisphere,
and a gala Jewish Festival Ban-
quet during which a joint presen-
tation will be made by the par-
ticipating American Jewish
organizations to the Curacao
government in recognition of its
enlightened relationship with
World Jewry. These events will be
conducted twice during the course
of the Curacao Jewish Festival
(Jan. 10 and 11; Jan. 17 and 18) to
enable all guests to participate in
these special ceremonies.
A five days/four nights or eight
days/seven nights specially priced
package from $544 will be
available exclusively through the
travel departments of B'nai
B'rith, B'nai Zion, National Coun-
cil of Jewish Women, Union of
American Hebrew Congregations
and United Synagogue of
America.
Curacao, the largest of the
Rabbi Aaron Feller points to replicas of the oldest and most
elaborate gravestones (dating back to 1659) from Beth Haim
Cemetery in Curacao, on display in the courtyard museum of
Mikve-Israel Synagogue, the oldest in continuous use in the
Western Hemisphere. A highlight of the 1986 Curacao Jewish
Festival, Jan. 5-23, will be Friday night services and a recep-
tion hosted by the Curacao Jewish community.

Brooklyn Investigation
Continued from Page 1
represents the district, told
the JTA he believes Dworkin
was responsible but that he
could not have acted alone
given the wide area over which
the windows were smashed
and the size and weight of the
rocks.
Dear said he asked police to
continue the investigation and
to continue their tight
surveillance in the
neighborhoods lest would-be
vandals take Dworkin's arrest
as a signal that it is now safe to
commit similar acts.
According to Dear, Dworkin
was motivated by a personal
vendetta with several Israelis
and Hasidic Jews and took
revenge on the entire com-
munity. He said the police, ac-
ting on a tip, questioned two
youths in their early twenties.
The latter, he said, led them to
Dworkin.
The New York City Council
and the Jewish Community
Relations Council posted
rewards totalling $15,000 last
month for information leading
to the arrest and conviction of
the perpetrators.
Peggy Tishman, president of
the JCRC, had high praise for
the round-the-clock police ef-
forts during the past four
weeks, leading to Dworkin's
arrest." We are thankful that
we seem to have a resolution in
this matter," Tishman said.
Malcolm Hoenlein, executive
director of the JCRC, praised
Police Commissioner Ben-
jamin Ward and Police Chief
Robert Johnson Jr. for their
"major commitment in detec-
tives, uniformed and anti-
crime officers in this case."
He also praised Capt.
Bromberg who was in charge
of the investigation and the
"exceptional cooperation" bet-
ween the detectives of
Brooklyn South and
Bromberg s bias unit.

SUSAN STEINER
Susan Steiner, daughter of Dr.
Michael and Dianne Steiner, will
become a Bat Mitzvah on Friday,
Dec. 20 at Temple Israel. Services
will begin at 8 p.m.
LAURENCE BRICKMAN
Laurence Brickman of Lake
Worth will be Bar Mitzvah on Fri-
day, Nov. 20 at Temple Judea. He
will share his Bar Mitzvah with
Stanislav Malishev of Moscow.
Douglas Kleiner, chairperson of
the Temple's social action commit-
tee, will present Laurence with a
twinning certificate. Following
the service, Larry's family will
sponsor an oneg shabbat in his
honor.
Jewish roots run deep in
Curacao. As early as 1651,
Sephardic Jews from Holland
crossed the Atlantic to establish a
congregation on Curacao. These
early arrivals were soon joined by
other Jews from Portugal and
Brazil seeking refuge from the
persecution of the Inquisition. In
an atmosphere of temperance and
mutual respect, the Jews of
Curacao became an active and
prosperous community.
In 1732, the island's Jewish
Community built Mikve Israel-
Emanuel, reminiscent of the old
Portugese synagogue in Amster-
dam with its pastel yellow facade
and gabled roof. It remains the
oldest synagogue in continuous
use in the Western Hemisphere.
Its Spanish tiled courtyard, rich
mahogony doors and carved
panelling, white sand temple floor
and antique brass chandeliers
suspended from the lofty ceiling
provide a setting as breathtaking
as it is reverential.
A corner of the outside cour-
tyard is occupied by the Jewish
Cultural Museum which houses a
priceless collection of ritual ob-
jects and memorabilia from
Curacao's Jewish community.
Rabbi Aaron Peller is the spiritual
leader of the Mikve-Israel
synagogue.
The Curacao Jewish Festival
renews the ties that unite
worldwide Jewry and will honor a
government and its people who
have provided an englightened
humanitarian haven for Jewish
religious and cultural traditions
for over 300 years.

Sailors Did Good Deeds
During Haifa Shore Leave
Congregation Anshei Sholom
has chosen Al Radonsky as
their honoree at a Israel
Bond Testimonial on January
19,1986. He will be receiving
the prestigious City of Peace
Award from the State of
Israel for his dedication to
his synagogue, his communi-
ty, and to the State of Israel.
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Sailors
from the visiting U.S. aircraft car-
rier Coral Sea volunteered much
of their shore leave in Haifa last
week to do good deeds for local
children and the elderly and to ap-
ply fresh paint to shabby homes in
rundown neighborhoods. They
also raised money to send a young
Haifa girl to the U.S. for a life-
saving operation.
But the sea did not reward their
kindness. High waves whipped by
winds howling across Haifa Bay
swept away the landing stage and
gangway, making it impossible for
the men to rejoin their ship Satur-
day night. Many were invited by
Haifa families to spend the night.
Others were provided with beds at
a nearby Israel Navy base. Some
slept at dockside.
The storm forced postponement
of a show aboard the Coral Sea by
entertainers flown from the U.S.
by the Defense Department. Also
put off was a ceremony at which a
check was to be presented to
11-year-old Moshit Shabo to fly
her and her mother to the U.S. for
an urgently-needed liver
transplant, an operation that can-
not be performed in Israel because
it is forbidden by the Orthodox
religious authorities
The show will go on, however.
Moshit will be in the audience, and
parts of Haifa will look a good deal
better because of the Coral Sea's
visit. Her men were only com-
pleting a job started by their
fellow-salts from the carrier, USS
Saratoga, which berthed in Haifa
two weeks ago.
About 40 seamen went to the
Rothschild Hospital to finish pain-
ting popular cartoon characters
on the walls of the children's
ward. Later, they visited an old
aged home to help cheer up the
residents.
The Coral Sea's skipper, Capt.
Bob Ferguson, said the work done
by his men in their free time was
of benefit to all concerned. The
children and the aged were
helped, and the sailors had a
chance to meet people other than
their shipmates with whom they
live in close quarters for long
periods of time.
Temple Beth Sholom in Lake Worth will be honoring three
pomen at a testimonial luncheon on Jan. 12,1986. Rose Dun-
luj, Gertude S. Shepard, and Sylvia W. Smith, this year s
Ikonorees have excelled in many facets of Jewish communal
life. Special guest will be Emil Cohen, one of the outstanding
Iperformers on the entertainment scene today.

Maritime Exhibit from Israel On View At Miami's Planet Ocean
By ERIC MOSS
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
"Crossroads of the Ancient
World: Israel's Archaeological
Heritage," an exhibition of over
200 artifacts from Haifa's
Maritime Museum, will be on
display at Planet Ocean through
Jan. 31. 1986.
Dr. F.G. Walton Smith. Planet
Ocean's founder and the original
dean of the University of Miami's
Rosenthal School of Marine and
Atmospheric Sciences, was the
primary force in bringing the ex-
hibit to Miami during its national
tour, which has included stops at
Harvard University, Atlanta and
Texas.
Dr. Smith, an internationally-
renowned scholar and educator,
often refers to Miami as the
"crossroads of the modern
world," and he has adapted the
phrase to capture the essence of
this exhibition.
DR. SMITH also heads the In-
ternational Oceanographic Foun-
dation, sponsor of the
presentation.
"It's ironic and fitting the ex-
hibit should be here," said Dr.
John Hall, chairman of the
University of Miami's An-
thropology Department.
"Especially when you consider
how Miami has become a major
traffic center where objects and
peoples meet, just like in that area
of the world in ancient times."
Star of the show is an exact
fiberglass replica of a bronze bat-
tering ram originally mounted on
the bow of a warship from the
Hasmonean culture, to which the
Maccabees belonged and noted for
its leadership and patriotism.
Artifacts on display cover a
wide period of time when Egyp-
tians. Phoenicians, Canaanites,
Greeks. Romans and Byzantines
competed on the high seas for
dominant positions in world trade.
According to Dr. Hall, the exhibit
shows how long trade has been oc-
curring in that part of the
Mediterranean, and the variety of
ancient cultures that were
present.
"The chronological sweep is
from 1800 BCE to the Sixth or
Seventh Century CE," Hall said,
"and it really shows the
unbelievable extent of trade all
around the world."
THE BATTERING ram, which
Hall described as "extraor-
dinary," was discovered by a
scuba diver off Haifa and is so
heavy, a duplicate had to be con-
tracted to make it mobile enough
for a travelling exhibition. It
measures roughly three meters
long, two meters high and two
meters deep.
HOW VALUABLE are these
objects?
"These are not exactly museum
masterpieces," Dr. Hall said, "but
they are of great historical value.
You just can't put a dollar value
on historical objects. All the pieces
are priceless documents of our
