Community Invited-To An Evening 'Beside The Golden Door'
Seen recently at the Colony planning for
the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach
County's Annual Community Dinner/Dance
were its chairmen Joel and Carole Koeppel,
with committee member Stacey Levy and
Federation president Erwin H. Blonder.
The event, which will be held on Feb. 22 at
the Hyatt Palm Beaches, will be staged by'
Bruce Sutka. The evening is a tribute to
early immigrants to the United States.
Mr. and Mrs. Joel Koeppel,
chairmen of this year's Annual
Community Dinner Dance in
support of the 1986 Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County/United Jewish Appeal
campaign, have announced
that the theme for this year's
event will be Beside the Golden
Door, a tribute to the Jewish
people who came to the shores
of our country through Ellis
Island and became an integral
part of the American dream.
The event will be held on
Saturday evening, Feb. 22,
beginning with cocktails at
7:30 p.m. and dinner and danc-
ing at 8 p.m., at the Hyatt
Palm Beaches.

Biden Delivers Keynote Speech
President's Dinner Pushes
Campaign Over $3.5 Million Mark
This yaar's- ]
ner, held at the Breakers in
Palm Beach on January 16,
raised approximately $370,000
for the 1986 Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach Coun-
ty/United Jewish Appeal cam-
paign, according to Arnold L.
Lampert, general campaign
"We are very pleased that
$80,000 was pledged by first-
time givers,' said Lampert,
"and we are proud to report
that our campaign right now is
I of
year s." Lampert also noted
that $82,000 of increased
pledges were announced by
1986 donors of record, thereby
increasing their contributions
by 40 percent. Overall,
Lampert said that the 1986
Campaign has surpassed the
3.5 million mark.
Recalling his meeting with
Senator Biden during last
November's "Washington
Connection," Erwin H.
Blonder, president of the
Federation of Palm
Beach County, described the
Senator from Delaware as "a
true friend and champion of
the State of Israel," and
Biden's address confirmed
Blonder's assessment.
Biden began by comparing
U.S.-Israel relations to a
"roller coaster" with
"euphoric highs," such as the
signing of the Camp David Ac-
cords, and "abysmal lows," ex-
emplified by the slanted news
coverage of events in the Mid-
dle East.
Biden observed that public
opinion ebbs and flows also.
"I have found myself in one
month being praised for my
stance on Israel," he said,
"and the next month receiving
threatening letters because of
my position."
Emphasizing the present
volatility of U.S. Israel rela-
tions, Biden said, "The day-to-
day management of the rela-

announced that Dan Mica,
U.S. Congressman from
Florida's 14th district, will
speak at the Wellington Gala
Dinner Celebration scheduled
for Feb. 18 at the Polo House
of the Palm Beach Polo and

Assembly, during which he
hosted a luncheon where UN
leaders convened to discuss in-
ternational terrorism. Mica
was also a driving force behind
the December 1985 resolutions
in the United Nations and the
U.S. House of Representatives
condemning terrorism.
As an appointed panel
member of a special task force
on terrorism and diplomatic
Security established by
Secretary of State George
Shultz in 1984, Mica introduc-
ed a bill in the last session of
Congress which would have
forced President Reagan to
recall certain diplomats unless
Eproved the panel's pro-
., which included a $3.5
allocation package for
security precautions at U.S.
embassies abroad. The Presi-
dent eventually approved the
panel's recommendations.
Mica's views on terrorism in
general are a departure from
his normally moderate
outlook. For many years as a
U.S. Congressman, Mica has
advocated immediate retalia-
tion against identifiable in-
dividuals or, groups responsible
for terrorist acts.

Moreover, Mica has con-
sistently voted for military and
economic aid to Israel, oppos-
ed sales of sophisticated arms
to Israel's avowed enemies,
supported the relocation of the
U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem
and encouraged a halt to all
U.S. contributions to the UN
which are used for PLO
A member of the Congres-
sional Coalition for Soviet
Jews, Mica has adopted the
Soviet Refusenik family of
Israel Achildaev.
Mica is also concerned with

chest supporters in Congress,
Dan Mica s comments will be

Appeal campaign on Sunday
evening, Feb. 9, at the Boca
Grove Country Club in Boca
Joe E. Berk, who led the In-
dian Spring campaign last
year, has been appointed by
general campaign chairman
Arnold L. Lampert to head the
campaign again this year. Mrs.
Bernard Dokton and Mrs. Ar-
nold Kantor are this year's

Agency's Aliyah and Absorp-
tion Department, will be the
guest speaker at this $300

Joe E. Berk
sorption of Ethiopian Jews in-
to the mainstream of Israeli
society, Mr. Dominitz's
remarks will be especially per-
tinent," said Indian Spring
campaign chairman Berk.
Formerly active in the
Jewish Federations of Greater
Hartford, Connecticut and

Originally from Boston,
Charlotte Dokton has resided
in Palm Beach County for six
years, having been affiliated
with Mishkan Tefila in Boston
and Beth Avoda in Newton
while living up North. Mrs.
Dokton is active in the Yachad
Unit of B'nai B'rith and with
Brandeis University Women
and Women's American ORT.
Citing Israel as her prime
love and devotion, Mrs.
Dokton acknowledged that
"taking care of our elderly and
providing Jewish education for
our youth are the primary
challenges on the local level.
We also need to establish bet-
ter relations with our
neighbors in the community."
"People come to South
Florida to retire, but you can't
retire from being Jewish,"
Mrs. Dokton added.
A former resident of
Detroit, Michigan and Dayton,
Ohio, and a winter resident of
Palm Beach County since
1975, Ilo-Ann Kantor has
lived permanently in Florida
for the past three years.
Mrs. Kantor was a member
of Temple Beth Abraham in
Dayton, and her first trip to
Israel in 1980 was highlighted
by a tour of the Old City of
Jerusalem led by her cousin
Ahron Layish, director of
Islamic studies at three
Jerusalem universities.
According to Mrs. Kantor,
"As Jews, we have to try to
improve our image in the com-
munity. We need to continue
creating rapport with other
groups through the Communi-
ty Relations Council, and the
tide of assimilation needs to be
stemmed through more Jewish
education and cultural
Having escaped from
Prague in 1939, Yehuda
Dominitz made aliyah the

was appointed deputy director
general of the unified Aliyah
and Absorption Departments
of the Jewish Agency.
In his present position as

This Is
It is no surprise but it is worth noting that the so-
called Arab moderates are reacting predictably to the U.S.
decision to stand up to Muammar Khadafy. The naive
among us might assume that countries like Jordan and
Saudi Arabia supposed U.S. allies and nations that are
high on Khadafy's hit list would support a firm stand
against the Libyan terrorist. But that won't happen. This
time, as so often in the past, the Arab world stands almost
as one in support of extremism.
The evidence is all around us. Arab League foreign
ministers meeting in Tunisia condemned America's tough
line toward Libya and unanimously went on record in sup-
port of Khadafy. In Jordan, the government-controlled
newspaper Al Dustur denounced "possible U.S.-Israeli ag-
gression against Libyan territory and the fraternal Libyan
people" (Jan. 6). In Saudi Arabia, King Fahd was reported
to have telephoned Khadafy with an oner of Saudi support
in the event of a Libyan confrontation with the United
States or Israel. Saudi radio "absolutely rejected" the U.S.
stand against Khadafy. A statement on Jan. 4 defended
Khadafy by arguing that he had nothing to do with ter-
rorist attacks in Europe. Instead it blamed the United
States for providing "U.S. arms .. .to kill the Arabs."
The tiny emirate of Abu Dhabi used its newspaper, Al
Khalij (Jan. 5), to warn that "Arab silence over the
U.S.-Zionist" plot against Khadafy "encourages
Washington and Tel Aviv to continue their aggressive
designs." It said that the Arab world has a "moral obliga-
tion" to reply to "U.S.-Zionist" aggression against Libya.
As for the "moderate" Arafat wing of the PLO, it also
defended Libya. Yasir Arafat said on Jan. 7 that "we stand
with Libya against any aggression on the part of Israel and
America. ."
There is no need to look at the statements issued by the
radicals. Syria, which is allied with Libya and Abu Nidal,
vehemently supports the Libyan. And so do the Soviets,
who are Khadafy's arms suppliers.
But it is the reaction of those deemed moderate that is
most instructive. Jordan and Saudi Arabia are widely
touted in the United States and Europe as pro-Western
and moderate. And to a certain extent they are. But look at
how quickly that moderation and pro-Western orientation
disappears when the United States considers taking action
against a terrorist-backing Arab regime. In the final
analysis, pan-Arab considerations take precedence over
any supposed commonality of interests with the United
States and the West. Blood is thicker than water.
Israel has to take that into consideration when it con-
templates trading territory for a peace arrangement with
Jordan. After all, Jerusalem has to wonder if Jordan could
ever resist the siren call to join Syria and even Syria's
enemy, Iraq, in a war against Israel. An Arab world which
will bury any number of hatchets and close ranks behind
the likes of Khadafy could obviously do the same (as it has
time and time again) in a war against Israel.
This is something that the United States must bear in
mind as Washington considers new arms sales for the
Saudis and the Jordanians. Sen. Alan Cranston (D-Calif.)
says that it would be "unwise for our government to sell ad-
vanced arms to any nation that is actively giving aid and
comfort to Libya." The Senator is right. Any friend of
Khadafy's is no friend of ours. Or of peace either.
(Near East Report.)
New Arms Sale Proposals
Provoke Congressional Opposi
The Reagan Administration
is reportedly preparing to ask
Congress to approve an arms
sale in excess of $1 billion to
Saudi Arabia. The Saudi arms
package request will arrive on
Capitol Hill amidst mounting
efforts to block the highly con-
troversial $1.9-billion arms
sale to Jordan.
Sen. Alan Cranston (D.,
Calif.), a leading opponent of
the sale, said that he has
already obtained the support
of 58 other Senators for a
resolution to halt the sale. In
addition, 64 Senators wrote
the President, calling on him
to drop plans to sell 40 F-15
fighters to Saudi Arabia. The
Saudis already have 60 F-15's.
Cranston, who has pledged
to lead the Senate fight
against the new package, call-
ed on the Administration to
"scuttle" the sale, charging
that "the Saudi backing of Li-
byan terrorists is an outrage of
a new dimension" in addi-
tion to their continued
bankrolling of the PLO and
Syria and their steadfast
refusal to recognize Israel's
right to exist.
The Organization of the
Islamic Conference recently
adopted a Saudi-backed resolu-
tion fully embracing Libyan
dictator Muammar Khadafy,
Cranston said. In additon, the
Arab League adopted a Saudi-
supported statement which
condemned U.S. threats
against Libya following the
Rome and Vienna terrorist at-
tacks and pledged support of
any Arab country subjected to
Rep. Mel Levine (D., Calif.),
who will offer the House
resolution to block the Saudi
sale, told Near East Report:
"Since the AW ACS were ap-
proved the Saudis have played
a consistently negative role
with regard to American in-
terests in the Middle East. It is
hardly appropriate for us to
reward them by selling them
additional weapons." Levine is
currently circulating a "Dear
Colleague" letter opposing the
sale. He noted that during the
debate over the AW ACS sale
to Saudi Arabia in 1981, Presi-
dent Reagan assured Congress
that future arms deliveries to
the Saudis would take place
only "if initiatives towards a
peaceful resolution of disputes
in the region have either been
successfully completed, or
significant progress towards
that goal has been accomplish-
ed with the substantial
assistance of Saudi Arabia."
Saudi Arabia has purchased
nearly $50 billion worth of
military goods and services
from the United Sates since
1950, four times as much as
the next closest recipient. Yet
Saudi Arabia refuses to en-
dorse even King Hussein's fit-
ful efforts to negotiate peace
between Israel and Jordan.
Congressional sources also
told NER that the weapons
proposal, which is still being
drafted by the Administration,
will contain more than 1,600
Sidewinder air-to-air missiles
800 Stinger anti-aircraft
missiles, 12 Blackhawk
helicopters, 100 Harpoon
missiles, sophisticated com-
ponents to upgrade the
capability of Saudi F-15
fighter aircraft, and electronic
counter-measure systems for
U.S.-built F-5's and F-15's.
Saudi Arabia has recently
completed a $4 billion deal
with Britain to purchase 48
Tornado strike aircraft. (U.S.
policy precludes the sale of
such offensive attack aircraft
to Saudi Arabia for basing
near Israel.)
The Saudis already have pur-
chased more than 3,000
Sidewinders (giving them
perhaps the highest ratio of
missiles to planes anywhere),
100 Harpoon missiles and 400
Genocide Treaty Blocked
The treaty banning genocide
has again been derailed in the
United States Senate. In the
days just prior to the holiday
recess, Senate Majority
Leader Robert Dele (R., Kans.)
attempted to move the treaty
to ratification but was opposed
by Sep. Jesse Helms (R., N.C.),
a longitme opponent of the
treaty. Sen Howard Metzen-
baum (D., Ohio) strongly back-
ed Dole's effort and said that
the "American Jewish com-
munity believes that the
Genocide Convention must be
The Genocide Convention,
which has been signed by
Israel as well as by all major
world powers except the
United States, stipulates that
genocide, intent to commit
genocide and complicity in
genocide, are punishable inter-
national crimes. It was first
proposed after World war II as
a response to the Nazi murder
of six million Jews. Supporters
of the treaty say that it has
almost unanimous support in
the Senate and pledged to br-
ing it up for a vote again next
Israel's Obligations
In the days and now weeks following the Vienna and
Rome airport masscres, segments of the media have
adopted a new approach toward Israel. The media seems
anxious for an Israeli retaliatory raid against Libya, the
PLO, or Syria. And the media is not alone. There are hints
from Washington and from foreign governments as well

Endowment Director
A gift to the Endowment
Fund can be of almost any size,
and can be made during the
donor's lifetime or as a bequest
through a will. Gifts may be in
the form of cash, personal pro-
perty, real estate, securities or
life insurance, and may be
donated outright or in trust.
Usually, gifts qualify for cur-
rent income tax or estate tax
Endowment staff and lay
professionals are available to
advise the donor with respect
to the establishment of a fund
or with the making of a be-
quest. However, before mak-
ing any gift the donor should
consult with legal and financial
counselors to assess his/her
personal situation. Over a
period of several weeks we
have begun to review in-
dividual vehicles available to
an individual to begin his/her
participation in the Endow-
ment program. Outlined below
are some of the options
available for Endowment
Establishing a Philanthropic
Fund at the Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County pro-
vides a unique opportunity to
accomplish both philanthropic
and tax-savings goals at the
same time. A Philanthropic
Fund has many of the at-
tributes of a private founda-
tion, without the burdensome
IRS reporting requirements,
taxes and restrictions.
The creation of a Philan-
thropic Fund can be especially
advantageous in a year when
the donor will experience an
unusually large tax liability as
the result of the sale or liquida-
tion of a business, or the sale
of stock or other appreciated
assests in which the donor has
a low basis.
The unique aspect of a
philanthropic fund is the ongo-
ing relationship between the
donor and the fund. The fund
may be established in the name
of the donor, the donor's fami-
ly or in memory of a loved one.
The fund retains this designa-
tion during the lifetime of the
donor and, in addition, it af-
fords the donor the privilege of
making recommendations as to
how the fund's principal and
income should be distributed.
The donor or any other in-
dividual may make future con-
tributions to the fund which
are governed in the same man-
ner as the initial contribution.
The procedure to establish a
fund is not complicated. A con-
tribution in cash, securities or
property is required. Contribu-
tions of cash are tax deductible
up to the maximum amount
allowed by current law (50 per-
cent of the donor's contribu-
tion tax base) and the deduc-
tion can be carried forward to
succeeding years should the
contribution exceed this limit.
Con' Nations of securities,
held oy the donor for more
than one year, are deductible
up to 30 percent of this con-
tribution base.
Additionally, the amounts
the donor may deduct is the
fair market value of the
securities when donated. The

donor pays no capital gains tax
on the appreciated value of the
securities. Thus, if one con-
tributes securities with a net
market value of $30,000, the
entire $30,000 becomes a part
of the fund, and the donor may
deduct that amount as a
charitable contribution.
At this point it should be
noted that the House Ways
and Means Committee has
completed its work on the tax
reform legislation and the full
House will take up the plan
shortly. The Senate Finance
Committee will then consider
the tax reform package. Com-
mitte hearings are tentatively
scheduled for late January,
and final Senate action pro-
bably will not come until mid-
to late-spring at the earliest.
The House Ways and Means
Committee version of the bill
would, most certainly, have an
impact on charitable giving.
Many proponents of tax
reform have known all along
that it would be inappropriate
for them to argue against tax
reform just because lower tax
rates might mean lower levels
of giving, particularly among
upper income individuals.
These same proponents have
said that given thus unintended
negative result of tax reform,
the President and Congress
should not do anything else
that would undercut giving. To
that extent, the Ways and
Means Committee bill is most-
ly good news for contributors.
Those parts of the bill, such as
the treatment of gifts and the
appreciated property, which
are unnecessarily harmful, can
still be changed in the Senate
Finance Committee. Organiza-
tions such as the Independent
Sector will work toward that
The most encouraging
aspect of the Committee pro-
posal is that it makes the
charitable deduction for
nonitemizers permanent for
those taxpayers whose gifts
total more than $100 annually.
Its inclusion in the bill will
result in a five billion dollar an-
nual increase in charitable giv-
ing, primarily among tax-
payers with incomes under
$30,000 a year, for
The contribution item of
greatest concern is a 568

ment of gifts from appreciated
Back to the Philanthropic
fund: it is also important to
state that one of the additional
advantages derived by the
donor is that all administrative
responsibilities connected with
the fund are handled by the
Endowment program of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County. The donor's
contribution is invested in
common with other monies
held by the Endowment Fund.
The responsibility for in-
vesting these monies is en-
trusted to the Federation's In-
vestment Committee. This
committee of ex- ienced

sionals and other business peo-

Soviet Jewry
Anniversary Twinning Elicits Response
Mr. and Mrs. Eli Taylor of
Palm Beach and Mr. and Mrs.
Greenblatt, refuseniks from
Odessa, USSR, recently
celebrated their 50th wedding
anniversaries on the same day
separated by thousands of
miles and by an even greater
distance in terms of political
and individual freedom.
The celebration of the
milestones was, however,
heightened by the opening of
communication between the
couples, who "twinned" their
anniversaries in much the
same way many youngsters do
at the time of their bar or bat
The Taylors sent a card of
congratulations and warm
wishes to the Greenblatts,
which included the signatures
of many Temple Israel con-
gregants. Unlike many
American correspondents who
write to refuseniks, the
Taylors received a reply.
"We are delighted to see
that mail is coming out of
Russia," Mrs. Taylor wrote in
a note to Rabbi Howard
Shaprio of Temple Israel.
Following is an edited ver-
sion of Mrs. Greenblatt's letter
to the Taylors:
Dear Sarah and Eli:
My husband and I send you
our most warm words of
thankfulness for your
solicitude and care. We are
deeply moved by all greetings
which we received this (past)
autumn. It is a pity you could
not get our replies for we did
answer all our friends who had
sent us their kind tokens.
Several cards came from
Florida. I hope they will
receive our answers full of
sincere gratitude. But if the
answers are lost and this letter
of mine is lucky to get to you,
please give all of them our best
regards and wishes. I want you
and them to know that human
warmth and support cannot be
taken away from us.
We received a lot of
greetings from different
regions. As if from a fairy tale
those cards reached our shore.
In fact, they were the
brightest event, for the an-
niversary itself is not worth
mentioning. It was modest and
sad. Only five persons came to
congratulate us. Many of our
friends have either moved
abroad or passed away. We
dreamt of marking this date in
a different place. We still
dream about it; we still hope
that our plight will stop some
day. Six years have passed
since we began our long road
of hope, but nothing has
changed in our life, for we are
unable to change anything.
We will be happy to hear
from you again. Meanwhile we
send you best wishes for many
happy and healthy years.
Israel's Obligations
Continued from Page 4
that this time it would be okay for Israel to strike back.
It is all rather ironic. Can anyone recall an Israeli strike
against terrorists that was not condemned by foreign
governments and the world media? On many occasions
even the United States has joined the chorus saying that
Israeli's retaliation was "disproportionate" and would only
add to the "cycle of violence." Western European nations
- now looking toward Israel to take the actions they are
afraid to take have been the most vocal in criticizing any
forceful response to terrorists.
So far Israel isn't buying. This doesn't mean that it has
abandoned its anti-terrorist policy. It hasn't and, in fact,
it will probably strike hard against those responsible for
the murders in Europe. But it witrdo so at a time and place
of its choosing. It is certainly not going to do anything to
take the Europeans off the hook. The airport massacres
took place in Europe. Most of the people killed in them
were Europeans or Americans. Retaliation for them is cer-
tainly not Israel's sole responsibility not by a long shot.
One "senior Israeli official" explained Israel's position to
New York Times correspondent Tom Friedman on Jan. 6.
"Let us be frank," he said. "This man Khadafy is crazy. Do
you think we need to be fighting with him all over Europe
now-? The official continued, "The Europeans are afraid to
deal with him. The Americans are hesitant, so we are the
ones who are invited to go after him."
In essence, the Israeli's response was "thanks, but no
thanks." Israel will fight its own wars because it has no
choice but to defend itself. And it will fight the terrorists
who are determined to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.
It will also join in any multinational effort to fight the ter-
rorists. But it will not go into battle as a proxy for countries
that are far larger and far more powerful. There is a point
where major powers have to defend their own interests and
not rely on the military capacity and sheer guts of a coun-
try the size of Maryland. Until they do, the reign of terror
will continue.

Grant Awarded To JCC's Senior Center
Sidney Berger, chairman of
the Older Adults Committee of
the JCC, announced recently
that the Gulfstream Area
Agency on Aging has again
awarded the Comprehensive
Senior Center a Federal grant,
Title III of the Older
Americans Act. Jan. 1 began
the JCC's 9th grant year. This
funding enables the center to
provide various daily services
for persons 60 years or older,
enabling them to live in-
dependently in their own
homes for a longer time.
1985 was a most successful
year. The center provided:
32,621 Hot Kosher meals
to 732 different persons.
2,380Kosher Home
delivered meals to 207 dif-
ferent persons.
31,231 Transportation
trips for 1,208 different
6,182 hours of recreation
to 328 different persons.
10,547 hours of education
to 436 different persons.
The first Federal grant
awarded in 1977 was only for
transportation. In the next
few years it was expanded to
include recreation and educa-
tion. In 1983 the grant was in-
creased substantially to pro-
vide Kosher meals for the first
time in Palm Beach County.

Kimche Started It
Revealed Invite to Greek Minister
and Israel, which do not have
full diplomatic relations, may
be moving in that direction.
David Kimche, director
general of Israel's Foreign
Ministry, concluded a series of
meetings with Greek officials
last week with the surprise an-
nouncement that a member of
the Israeli government,
Minister of Tourism Moshe
Sharir, has been officially in-
vited to visit Greece.
Sharir, a Likud Liberal, will
be the first Israeli minister to
visit Greece in more than 20
years; the last such visit, in the
early '60s, was by Abba Eban,
then Minister of Education.
An even bigger surprise was
Kimche's statement to the
press that Greek Foreign
Minister Karlos Papoulias has
accepted, in principle, an in-
vitation to visit Israel. Kimche
made his announcements after
a meeting with Papoulias that
lasted more than four hours.
It was the first such meeting
by a Greek Foreign Minister
with a ranking Israeli official.
Kimche described it and his
other talks here as "very
The last time a Greek
minister the Minister of
Agriculture visited Israel
was in the autumn of 1981 dur-
ing the waning days of the
Conservative goverment that
ruled Greece. No dates have
been set for the Sharir or
Papoulias visits, but sources
believe they will take place this
year. The two countries will
also exchange visits by delega-
tions of their respective

and Israel have been strained

outspoken support of the
Palestinian cause and its gran-
ting of quasi-diplomatic status

Organization which Israel
regards as a mortal enemy.
li interests in Greece are
reiireserite-i only on the Con-
sular level.
Asked if he and the Greek
Foreign Minister had discuss-
ed an elevation of diplomatic
representation, Kimche said
he had explained to the Greek
officials that it is as much in
their interests as Israel's to
normalize relations, "Yet we
made it clear that we are not
asking for any favors."
He said it was agreed to
reactivate two agreements
between Israel and Greece
which have been dormant, one
on agriculture and one on
tourism. The joint agricultural
committee is due to meet in
Athens in March.
Kimche said he explained to
the Greek officials what Israel
has been doing to find a
peaceful solution to the Middle
East conflict. He said the
obstacles were put up by the
Arab side, notably the PLO.
When a reporter noted that
Greece has asked the PLO for
help to prevent terrorist ac-
tivites here, Kimche observed
that it was like "calling on the
Mafia to preserve the law." He
declined to say whether
Greece and Israel would
cooperate to combat ter-
rorism. But he acknowledged
that the subject was raised
during his talks here.
Israel's Consul here,
Yehezkel Barnea, said that
normalization of relations bet-
ween the two countries is still
far off but there is a change for
the better in the atmosphere.
Two newspapers, the Com-
munist daily Rizospastis and
the pro-government daily
Elefterotypia, quoted an
anonymous government
source as saying relations bet-
ween Greece and Israel will
improve dramatically this
year. Political observers here
believe the objective of Kim-
che's visit was to test Arab
reaction to the possibility of
improved relations.
Kimche is going to Helsinki
before returning to Israel.
Finland represents Soviet in-
terests in Israel with which
Moscow has no diplomatic
relations. Asked if his trip
there has anything to do with
Soviet-Israeli relations, Kim-
che said it did not, but added,
"I must admit that a lot of
Israeli diplomats around the
world are talking to Soviet

tionship is fragile. We who are
very concerned can never be
certain from one day to the
next what the turn of events
will be."
Evaluating foreign policy in
the Middle East over the last
decade as "a continuity of
blunders," Biden criticized the
lack of a comprehensive Mid-
dle East policy. "I believe
President Reagan's committed
to Israel, but his policy runs in
fits and starts."
Biden insisted that the
geopolitical landscape in the
Middle East has changed
dramatically over the last 10
years. "The American Jewish
community, as supporters of
Israel, has failed to take
significant cognizance of how
things have changed," he
Over the past decade, Biden
observed, "the array of forces
and configuration of nations
has changed, and terrorism
has become an institution
rather than an aberration."
Biden also cited changes
closer to home. "Only one in 10
Jewish children today are rais-
ed with a Jewish education;
and for the baby boom genera-
tion, which is now taking the
reins of leadership, the
Holocaust, the focal point of
our moral commitment to a
Jewish State, is more of a
memory than an experience, a
historical fact comprehended
intellectually but not
understood emotionally."
Biden characterized today's
generation of leaders as
neither anti-Israel nor anti-
Semitic, calling them "antisep-
tic in their attitude" toward
Israel, and he claimed that this
attitude is presently reflected
in the U.S. Senate, which
Biden noted, is now without
personalities like Javitz, Hum-
phrey, Jackson and Church,
whom, he said, "we once relied
upon to rally the conscience of
the Senate and, in turn, the
commitment of our nation with
regard to Israel."
He described the new leader-
ship as "good men who don't
know a thing about the Middle
East." This lack of knowledge
in legislative circles, Biden
said, lays fertile ground for
volatile shifts in opinion, such
as that which temporarily kill-
ed the Biden Amendment,
which would have guaranteed
that Israel would never have to
pay back more debt in any one
year than it received in U.S.
"This is the single most
significant economic measure
for Israel in 10 years, and it
would've saved Israel $5
billion," said Biden. "When it
was introduced times were
good and it passed easily
through several committees.
Then the bombing of the PLO
headquarters in Tunisia took
place and there was a spy scan-
dal. Support for the amend-
ment dwindled rapidly and we
were advised to pull it out of
consideration because it was
doomed to defeat"
Biden then declared that a
consistent U.S. Middle-
Eastern policy will never be
developed until "we shed
ourselves of three myths."
Invoking Voltaire, who said,
"If we believe absurdities we
are bound to commit
atrocities," Biden said the first
myth entails the mistaken
belief that "Saudi Arabia is
capable of being our ally and
friend in helping us promote
peace in the Middle East."
Biden called this belief a "no-
tion borne out of desire, not
The second myth which must
be destroyed according to
Biden is "the myth that Yassir
Arafat could deliver even if he
wanted to."
Biden then described King
Hussein as "a fine man who
harbors no deep seated ill-will
towards Israel,' but he said it
is naive to think that he can be
instrumental in the peace
"The first step that Hussein
takes toward peace will be his
last," Biden said. "He is not
anxious to appear in the se-
cond edition of "Profiles in
Unlike many politicians who
simply describe problems,
Biden offered some sugges-
tions that might lead to a
"As influential community
leaders, you have to convince
the national and international
community to point out the
strategic importance of Israel
to the United States, above
through diplomatic channels,
behind closed doors. We have
no right to publicly castigate
Israel when she makes
mistakes or when she
disagrees with us. Israel is not
and beyond our moral commit- a stepchild of the U.S."
ment," Biden said.
Comparing the $105 billion
that the U.S. contributes to
NATO defense to the $3 billion
in U.S. aid to Israel, Biden ask-
ed, "Why are we asked to
apologize for our aid to Israel?
Biden argued that without
Israel in the Middle East the
entire region would fall to
pressure from Syria and the
Soviet Union, and he urged the
audience to "help convince
Americans that $3 billion in
aid to Israel is the best $3
billion spent, based on naked
Biden also suggested that
the U.S. adopt a policy
whereby no American Presi-
dent would treat Israel dif-
ferently than any other loyal
ally. Biden noted that neither
France, Germany nor Britain,
the latter of which most
recently refused to adopt sanc-
tions against Libya as re-
quested by President Reagan,
has been publicly criticized as
Israel has. The Senator said,"
Old allies and friends don't
fight in the front yard. If we
disagree with Israel, we should
discuss our differences
Biden also insisted that the
entire Arab world must know
the fight with the Arabs:
have no place else to go."
Biden claimed that the
security for any and all Jews is
directly linked to the security
of the nation of Israel.
He concluded by claiming
"Israel needs more help now
than she has at any time since
that the U.S. recognizes Israel 1949," and he apologized for
as "first among nations in the his presumption when he said,

to the Arabs that we're willing Claiming that there is a
to cooperate as long .as they direct correlation between the

exist." and that of the U.S. Congress,
Biden then recalled his first Biden stated simply, "You

need it." 3
after impressing the Senator
with Israel's desperate geo-
political problems, said,
"Senator, you're too young to
despair ... Remember, we
Jews have a secret weapon in
In conclusion, Biden pointed
out paradoxically that Israel is
more valuable to us "than we
are to Israel. Israel needs help
now, and we need Israel."
Greenbriar Scores Again
Jewish Museum Acquires
Holocaust Sculpture
Jewish Museum of New York
has acquired the original
plaster version of "The
Holocaust," a major work by
contemporary American
sculptor George Segal. Ac-
quisition of the work, which is
considered one of the most im-
portant Holocaust memorial
sculptures in the world, was
made possible by a $400,000
contribution from an
anonymous donor, according
to the museum.
The history of the sculpture
goes back to 1982, when a
committee in San Francisco
was established to commission
a memorial to the Six Million.
Segal's original plaster version
was selected, after a competi-
tion, to be the memorial cast in
white patinated bronze. The
bronze sculpture is now
displayed near the city's Place
of the Legion of Honor. Segal
kept the plaster version.
The sculpture, exhibited at
the Jewish Museum in 1983
and 1985, consists of eleven
life-sized plaster figures, ten of
them lifeless. The eleventh
stands alone, gazing through
the barbed wire.

Dora Roth Raises Consciousness
At Village Royale, Golden Lakes
Israeli Holocaust survivor
Dora Roth delivered moving
presentations to concerned
members of the Jewish comm-
unity at Village Royale on the
Green in Boynton Beach on
Sunday, Jan. 12 and at Golden
Lakes Village in West Palm
Beach on Sunday, Jan. 19.
Mrs. Roth, who was shot in
the back by German guards
while in the Stuthof concentra-
tion camp only days before the
Allied liberation, began her
remarks by claiming, "If UJA
did not exist when I was
wounded, I wouldn't be stan-
ding here now."
In response to the question,
"Why is it important to give
more this year?" Roth explain-
ed, "Out of a national budget
of $22 billion, Israel pays back
$10 billion in interest on ac-
cumulated loans and spends $6
billion on defense. To keep a
country going on the $6 billion
remaining is almost
Roth insisted that Israeli
citizens are also giving to the
cause every day, despite the
fact that 70 percent of each
dollar they earn is relinquished
in the form of taxes. "I m ask-
ing you where it is written in
the Bible that Israelis have to
give more than anyone. We
give our blood. Three-and-a-
half million Israeli Jews can't
carry the burden of sustaining
Jewish life by themselves."
Nevertheless, Roth
acknowledged that diaspora
Jews have always been
generous. "I'm always speak-
ing to the wrong people, to
those who give so generously.
Where are the people who
don't come to meetings like
this?" she asked.
Pointing out that three
quarters of the social services
provided in Israel come from
the donations of diapora Jews,
Roth said that philanthropic
contributions to other Jewish
organizations such as ORT,
Hadassah and B'nai B'rith are
fine, but she claimed, "The
heaviest bulk of your giving
should be to Federation/UJA
campaigns. Israel is the UJA."
Emphasizing that the ex-
istence of a strong Israel is
essential to the maintenance
and continuity of Jewish life
everywhere, Roth said, "All
Jews must be willing to
sacrifice to save Israel;
without Israel there won't
even be a need to have a
Dora Roth went on to
criticize the significant
number of young Jews who are
leaving Israel for more
lucrative opportunities in
North and South America,
while their countrymen risk
their lives to defend the small
Jewish State surrounded by
150 million hostile Arabs.
"This hurts," Roth said, "and
it also hurts that only 50 per-
cent of American Jews have
visited Israel," although a
show of hands at both Village
Royale and Golden Lakes in-
dicated that the percentage
among the two audiences was
much higher.
Roth finished her remarks
by imploring, "We Israelis
can't do it alone; you have been
our partners all along. Please
continue to help. If you can see
yourself this year giving more,
please do it.

Ancient Dwellings Uncovered
City of David Dig Winds Up
JERUSALEM During the
final days of one of Israel's
most dramatic digs, ar-
cheologists at the ancient City
of David announced the
discovery of what are con-
sidered to be the oldest houses
in Jerusalem. Dating back
5,000 years, the three houses
were built a full 2,000 years
before King David conquered
the city that would become his
"The whole story of this
complicated city starts with
these buildings," says Dr.
Yigal Shilo of the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem, who
heads the City of David ex-
cavations. "From these
buildings to you and me today
is one continuous line of settle-
ment spanning 5,000 years,"
The spare rectangular
buildings, which each have a
single bench propped up
against a wall, are typical of
the style of houses from that
time. They belong to what ar-
cheologists call the proto-
urban phase in which set-
tlements all over Canaan (an-
cient Israel) were undergoing
a transition from semi-
nomadic villages to fortified
cities. Until now, archeologists
have uncovered very little
evidence from this important
period which marks the begin-
ning of the first cities in an-
cient Israel. The discovery of
the houses brings the City of
David excavations to a climatic
"After eight years of ex-
cavations, we went down from
the Islamic to the Christian,
Greek, Israelite and Canaanite
levels and here," says Shilo,
standing over one of the
5,000-year-old houses, "we
came to what James Michener
called "the source" in his book
the starting point of
Cult Figures, Flutes, Toilets
Since the dig began in 1978,
a team of 13 archeologists led
by Shilo along with over 100
volunteers from all over the
world have been setting out
daily to comb a steep one-acre
area on the eastern slope of
the Kidron Valley slightly
south of the Temple Mount.
While its steepness made digg-
ing extremely difficult, it is
precisely because of the
awkward angle that this part
of the City of David was
spared for archeologists no
modem builder had bothered
to construct over the site.
The location enabled the
team to uncover 25 layers of
settlements ranging from the
fourth millennium BCE to the
Middle Ages. With the
thousands of artifacts they
unearthed, archeologists,
assisted by geologists,
physicists, zoologists and even
musicologists, have been able
to piece together a vivid pic-
ture of each era.

first meeting on Thursday, Feb. 6 at 7 p.m. at the Center to
make plans for the coming months. Be sure to attend and
give your input and support.

Volunteers arrive early in the morning to
start another day of excavations at "Area
The abundance of fertility
figures and cult objects found
so close to the Temple makes
the Biblical accounts of the'
wrath of the prophets
understandable. As for the
more mundane habits of the
Israelites, a number of stone
structures found above what
seem to be cesspits probably
represent the first version of
the modern-day toilet.
Other finds include the char-
red arrowheads of the
attacking Babylonians, flutes
carved from the bones of cows'
hind legs, and a large collec-
tion of clay bullae official
government seals which list
many of the names mentioned
in the Bible, including the
name of one well-known royal
scribe who lived around the
6th century BCE.
Another Source
"In Jerusalem, finding the
source means finding both the
starting point of everything
and the water," says Shilo, ex-
plaining how David chose the
site along the Kidron Valley
because of its proximity to the
waters of the Gihon Spring.
And probably David's most im-
pressive legacy is the
underground system he built
to channel and store the
precious spring water which
served as Jerusalem's only
source of water right up until
the 20th century.
The system was devised to
ensure that in times of siege,
Jerusalemites would not be cut
off from their source of water
which lay outside the city
walls. To this end, David had a
100-foot horizontal tunnel dug
underneath the city, leading to
a natural vertical shaft 42 feet
long. The spring water flowed
through another short horizon-
tal tunnel into the bottom of
this vertical shaft which serv-
ed as a well. The Israelites
could approach it from the
horizontal tunnel inside the ci-
ty and end up standing above
the shaft from where they
could then fetch their water.
According to Biblical ac-
counts, David is said to have
conquered Jerusalem from the
Jebusite inhabitants by
penetrating the horizontal
water tunnel that led from the
spring directly into the city.
David's enemies would find it
G" of the City of David site.
The oldest houses in Jerusalem were discovered in this sum-
mer's 1985 excavations when archaeologists dug to the bot-
tom of this Israelite city wall (where the archaeologist is
standing) and found the ruins of the 5,000 year-old domiciles
sitting on bedrock below.
impossible to do the same
because of the vertical shaft
they would have to ascend in
order to penetrate the city.
Even without encountering
the enemy resistance, ascen-
ding the shaft was a major feat
for modern-day archeologists.
A team of mining engineers
was called upon to blast
through the shaft which had
become covered with refuse
since it was first discovered by
archeologist Charles Warren
in 1867. A team of alpinists
with elaborate climbing gear
then scaled the shaft which has
come to be known as Warren's
Shaft after its discoverer.
Open to Sightseers
Today, visitors can walk
through the 3,000-year-old
underground tunnel leading to
the shaft. There, if it is quiet,
they can still hear the spring
waters of the Gihon flowing
below as they did in David's
The underground water
system was later extended in
Solomon's time to form the
pool of Shiloah and then again
during the reign of Hazekiah
(around the end of the eighth
century BCE) to form the
1,500-foot long "Hezekiah's
Tunnel" which is still intact
It is the earliest section of
the Water system which David
built that now forms part of
the recently-opened ar-
chaeological park in the City of
David. In addition to Warren's
Shaft, the park incorporates
the northern section of the ex-
cavations known as Area G.
Many of the most outstanding
finds of the last eight years can
be viewed there. There is an
imposing 55-foot high stepped
structure the equivalent of a
six-storey building that
served as the retaining wall for
David's citadel (Archeologists
believe the citadel itself was
long ago destroyed.) Beneath
this Israelite structure, one
goes even deeper into the past
to find the thick walls that
belonged to a Canaanite
citadel, which David probably
destroyed when he conquered
the city. And above, two razed
buildings dated to the Babylo-
nian conquest of 586 BCE at-
test to the tragic end of the ci-
ty David founded.
Eventually the southern sec-
tion of the excavations, known
as Area E, will also be included
in the archeological park.
Then, visitors will also be able
to see the 5,000-year-old
houses that mark the b-
eginning of Jerusalem as a

Hungary Pays
Tribute To Wallenberg
Community Invited
(Editor's note: Friday, Jan.
17, was the blst anniversary of
Raotd Wallenberg's abduction
by the Russians from Budapest
to Moscow. In the absence of
hard evidence that he is dead,
his family continues to main-
tain that he might still be alive
in the Soviet Union, aged 7S.)
Hungarian government has
paid an unprecedented official
tribute here to Raoul
Wallenberg, the Swedish
diplomat jailed by the Soviet
Union after saving thousands
of Jews during World War II.
It has also hinted that it is ready
to rehabilitate a national
monument to Wallenberg erected
in Hungary after the war, at a
time when Wallenberg, declared
dead by the Russians, was actually
a secret prisoner in Moscow.
The 18-foot-high statue, by
sculptor Pal Patzay, was commis-
sioned by Jewish bankers, in
gratitude to their young Swedish
savior. It depicted a man wrestl-
ing with a snake. A medallion of
Wallenberg's profile and an in-
scription in his honor were fixed
to its plinth.
the night before it was to have
been unveiled in Budapest, and
was quietly reerected four years
later at a pharmaceutical works in
the town of Debrecen. Stripped of
all reference to Wallenberg, it
now stood as a vague symbol of
man's fight against disease.
Last week, however, the
Hungarian Ambassador to Bri-
tain, Dr. Matyas Domokos,
declared that his country honors
the memory of Wallenberg and af-
firmed that the anonymous statue
is really a tribute to the missing
His statement, in a letter on
behalf of the Central Committee
of the Hungarian Socialist
Workers Party, is an
acknowledgement of the
widespread international interest
evoked by the Wallenberg affair
in recent years. It also reveals
Hungary's embarrassment over
the shoddy fate of Wallenberg
himself in Soviet hands.

Mason, a member of the British

written about the statue to the
Hungarian leader Janos Kadar on
the occasion of his recent official
visit to Britain.
At the British Wallenberg Com-
mittee's request, the issue was
also raised informally with senior
Hungarian Communist officials by
British delegates to the recent

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency
has learned that during the forum,
United States Ambassador
Walter Stoessel laid a wreath in
Wallenberg's honor in the
Budapest street which bears his
name. Three years ago
Wallenberg was named an
honorary U.S. citizen.
BUDAPEST'S Wallenberg
Street, in the area where many
Jews were saved by the Swedes,
was given its name immediately
after the liberation of the city
from the Nazis. Unlike the statue
of Wallenberg, the street was
left intact.
The first sign of Hungary's of-
ficial uneasiness about the fate of
the statue appeared two years ago
in a lengthy article in the official
Hungarian magazine, Historika.
by Janos Poto. It recounted the
origin of the statue, and how it
disappeared from Budapest's
Saint Stephens Park. Without
delving into the fate of
Wallenberg himself, the author
noted caustically that "the same
thing happened to the statue as to
its inspirer it disappeared."
"He also expressed shock at its
use for a completely different
Poto disclosed, too, that two
more copies of the monument
later appeared in other places
outside a Budapest clinic and in
faraway Indonesia in both cases
without any clue to the sculptor's
original purpose.

Sutka, well-known party plan-
ner, will again be staging this
event. He will recreate that
time in history when the
Statue of Liberty served as a
symbol of hope for those early
immigrants who came through
Ellis Island."
The theme, "Beside the
Golden Door" comes from the
inscription at the base of the
Statue of Liberty, which was
written by the Jewish poetess
Emma Lazarus and which
ends with the words "I lift my
lamp beside the Golden Door.'
Bruce Sutka will recreate
what life was like on the lower
east side in the early 1900's.

will enter the New York City

It is only available to members of the American Jewish Congress.
Since we inaugurated our International Travel Program in 1958, some
350,000 members have participated in our tours to Israel, as well as to
40 countries on six continents. Tours which have earned the reputation
of being, quite simply, the best there are.
What is the American Jewish Congress?
We are a Jewish human rights and legal action organization, founded
nearly 70 years ago. Our original aims were to strive for the creation of a
Jewish homeland in Palestine; to fight all forms of inequality, discrimina-
tion and anti-Semitism; to strengthen ties between Jews of America and
Jews throughout the rest of the world.
That was 70 years ago. What about now?
Our goals are the same, but the issues have changed. Our support
of Israel is unqualified and fundamental. We have been, and remain, an
integral pan of the Mid-East peace process. At home, we are not afraid
to denounce the bigotry of a Louis Farrakhan or strive to eliminate, in
the courts and out, all forms of racism, bigotry, discrimination and anti-
What does this have to do with travel?
In our 40th anniversary year we determined that a concrete demon-
stration of our concern for, and interest in, world Jewry would be to give
our membership the opportunity of traveling to Israel and many other
countries with Jewish communities. Since then, we have become the
world's largest Jewish travel program.
What is so special about traveling with AJCongress?
Our tours are renowned for excellence, sophistication, innovation,
style and unrivaled value. Our members travel together, never with com-
mercial tour groups. Everywhere we go, we arrange unusual and special
events, briefings on local Jewish life, meetings with Jewish communities
plus visits to each country's most popular sites and attractions.

In Memorium
Eugene Topperman (1945-1986)
Gentle. Kind. Honest. These are the first things that
come to mind everytime we think of Eugene Topperman.
Gene was special, not only to his wife, his parents and
sister, but also to his friends, his colleagues, and especially
his clients.
Most of us in Florida knew Gene for three years, but it
took a lot less time to see his qualities. His wife, Marilyn,
knew Gene a matter of days at work before the two of them
fell in love. The other friends and colleagues that he soon
met quickly respected him as a wise and patient man.
Gene specialized in counseling older people some who
were ill, and some who were healthier than he. Some
clients who were accustomed to talking about their own ills
took notice of Gene's frail health and realized that he never
complained. He held a responsible position; he came to
work every day; perhaps they could too. And some did after
listening to and watching Gene.
If there was one quality in Gene that made us mad, it was
his stubborness. He was determined to prove that being
frail didn't mean holding back. A former supervisor in New
York City commented that Gene was the only employee
that regularly came to work in a snowstorm. In Florida he
avidly pursued target shooting, fishing and swimming.
From his hospital bed he mapped out his strategy for retur-
ning to work. A strategy he couldn't implement, but a
strategy he wrote, just the same.
If Gene had thought more about his own limitations and
less about work, play and love, maybe he would have added
a year or two to nis life span. But for Gene, that wouldn't
have been life.
Eugene Toppermann a good friend and colleague. We'll
all miss you.

million for the historic project
to fully succeed.
To enhance funding, United
Jewish Appeal recently reaf-
firmed its determination to
help federations meet their
renewal campaign goals. UJA
will provide additional
speakers, consultations and
materials and encourage major
donors to aid neighborhoods
besides the one twinned to the
donor's home community.
On the program's progress,
discussions with represen-
tatives of UJA, the Jewish
Agency, neighborhood res-
idents, and Israeli government
representatives whose agen-
cies also serve these
neighborhoods disclosed that,
overall, Project Renewal has
been remarkably successful.
Indeed, neighborhood visits
confirmed the testimony. Com-
munity centers, new schools,
paved roads and cleaner
streets have replaced slum-like
conditions. More important,
working-age adults have
received vocational-technical
training, job counseling and
placement; homemakers have
The "Guardians of Torah"
from across the state of
Florida gathered at 11:30
a.m. on Jan. 27 at the Hotel
Bonaventure in Fort Lander-
dale to pay tribute to Selma
Weintraub, national presi-
dent of Women's League for
Conservative Judaism. Mrs.
Weintraub is being cited for
her outstanding service to
Women's League for
Conservative Judaism, Con-
servative Judaism', and
American-Jewish Life.
Selma Weintraub will be the
main speaker and Cantor
Elaine Shapiro of West Palm
learned how to help their
families cope and to supple-
men't family income;
youngsters have adjusted
through pre-schools; teenagers
have unwound in athletic
facilities; and senior citizens
have relaxed in recreational
and cultural programs.
Residents praise the project.
Optimism has buoyed spirits.
And many friendships have
developed between U.S. and
Israeli Jews under the pro-
ject's aegis, bringing distant
branches of the world Jewish
family closer together.
On the other hand, progress
has not been uniform. Not all
communities have met their
fund-raising goals: Sometimes
neighborhood need was
underestimated or fund-
raising capacity was over-
estimated; invariably, the
Israeli economic crisis inte-
rvened. Two years ago, infla-
tion was 200 percent a year,
depreciating dollars that had
been converted to shekels. One
year ago, Israel began to pare
its budget, but joblessness in-
creased and reductions of sub-
sidies on basic commodities,
from a loaf of bread to fuel oil,
affected every family budget.
Initially, the Cabinet as
reported for the first time in
UJA watch desk excluded
Renewal from budget cuts
(Israel under varying formulas
provides about half of Renewal
funding in most
neighborhoods). But once the
defense budget incurred its
first $300 million reduction in
a national cut to a $22 billion
budget, nothing was exempt.
Renewal progress suffered as
Israel has struggled to rebuild
its economy.
"Of the 56 neighborhoods,"
said Jane Sherman, UJA na-
tional, vice chairman and
chairman of Project Renewal,
"12 will 'graduate' from
Renewal this spring. But 15
clearly need much more fun-
ding. Additionally, three
neighborhoods (Mevasseret
Zion near Jerusalem, Yavne in
the Negev and Rishon Mizrach
near Tel Aviv) still need a U.S.
community partner to receive
Jews elsewhere in the
Diaspora aid 14 neighborhoods
through Keren Hayesod,
essentially a UJA funding
counterpart. But three of
every four Diaspora Jews live
in the U.S.; they have the most
Jewish discretionary income
and it is on these Jews that
Renewal ultimately depends.
"The elderly and large
families so common in
Renewal neighborhoods are
seeing their income eaten
away as subsidies drop," said
Gideon Witkon, director-
general of the Jewish
Agency's Project Renewal
Department, funded by the
UJA/Federation Project
Renewal Campaign. "Govern-
ment social welfare and e-
ducation cuts worsen the
plight. Growing joblessness is
bringing many face to face
with catastrophe. They look to
American Jews. I hope you
won't let them down."

mation, or send a check to

Temple Israel Teens Elected
To SEFTY Regional Board
What is SEFTY? This ques-
tion is often asked by people
who have never had the oppor-
tunity to experience this type
of environment. Southeast
Federation of Temple Youth is
an organization which brings
temple youth groups from five
states together for conven-
tions during which they can
learn about Judaism, the world
around them, and themselves.
The five states in SEFTY are
Floriday, Georgia, Alabama,
Tennessee, and South
There are approximately
seven conventions each year
where these Jewish teens
gather either regionally or in
one of three districts, south,
east, or west, to study various
worldly topics that pertain to
teenagers. An example of this
is the regional convention,
which recently took place in
Atlanta, Georgia. The theme
of the convention was "Teens
in Crisis." They discussed such
crises as suicide, teen pregnan-
Amy Prince
Alissa Debs
cy, and drug abuse.
SEFTY also allows these
teens to work on a local level,
at all times learning about
leadership, Judaism, and
themselves. The teenagers
have a chance to lead their
own youth groups as well as
lead on a regional level. Two
people have recently taken
regional board positions from
the Greater West Palm Beach
area. They are Amy Prince,
who was elected SEFTY ex-
ecutive vice-president, and
Alissa Debs, who was elected
SEFTY treasurer. They were
formerly president and vice-
president, respectively, of T-
emple Israel's youth group.
Jewish Professionals Discuss
Cults And Missionary Groups
creased communication,
cooperation and networking
are needed to help combat the
activities of cults and mis-
sionary groups within the
Jewish community, concluded
a group of over 60 Jewish corn-
been developed by local and
national agencies over the
years. The keynote speaker
was Rabbi A. James Rudin,
director of Interreligious Af-
fairs, American Jewish Com-
mittee. Essential background
information was provided
counseling techniques were
shared and discussed.
The consultation also provid-
ed an update on research,
along with detailed explora-
tion of community relations
approaches and strategies
such as the development of
munity professionals who met ^ m fiS^^rSS"
recentlv at the offices of the S10n on fact findinK- informa-
in New York City for a Na- existing resources. In addition,
tional Consultation on this
topic the first national event
of its kind ever to be held.
The two-day event, conven-
ed and coordinated by the
Council of Jewish Federations
and the National Jewish Com-
munity Relations Advisory
Council, and co-sponsored by
the Jewish Community Rela-
tions Council of New York, the
Jewish Board of Family and
Children's Services of New
York and the Federation of
Jewish Philanthropies of New
York, attracted participants
from all over the country.
Julius Berman, chairman of
the Task Force on Mis-
sionaries and Cults, Jewish
Community Relations Council
of New York, served as chair-
man of the Consultation. He
offered introductory remarks,
as did Dr. Conrad Giles, chair-
man of the CJF Community
Planning Committee, and
Michael Pelavin, chairman of
the NJCRAC Task Force on
Domestic Concerns.
The consultation drew upon
the professional expertise on
cults and missionaries that has
task forces, coalition building
and use of the media and
legal approaches and
remedies, including cult guar-
dianship, anti-fraud suits and
zoning issues. Case studies
were shared throughout.
There was general agree-
ment among the group that
the consultation was extreme-
ly helpful and that future na-
tional and regional meetings
should be scheduled, and a
clearinghouse and newsletter
established, to help keep peo-
ple informed about this impor-
tant problem and in touch with
the network of other profes-
sionals working in the area.
