This Year In Jerusalem
A New Life For Anatoly And Avital
By GIL SEDAN
And HUGE ORGEL
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Anatoly Shcharansky stood on
Mt. Scopus last week for a few
moments and contemplated
the twinkling lights of
Jerusalem, rising and falling
among the hills and valleys
that are the geography of this
city he had never seen before
but knew intimately from
descriptions in the letters his
wife, Avital, sent him during
his nine years in Soviet prisons
and labor camps.
His thoughts during those
moments are not known. But
he may well have recalled the
day in 1978 when he heard a
Soviet court sentence him to
13 years' imprisonment
allegedly for spying for the
U.S. and responded aloud,
"Now, more than ever, I tell
my Avital and my people;
'Next year in Jerusalem.''
He was here now, at the end
of probably the happiest and
most joyfully tumultuous day
of his life: his early morning
crossing of a bridge from East
Germany to West Berlin, the
first step on his march to
freedom; his flight to
Frankfurt for reunion with
Avital Shcharansky whom he
had not seen since their wed-
ding day in Moscow, July 4,
1974; the flight to Israel and
the hero's welcome at Ben-
Gurion Airport; his telephone
conversation with President
Reagan from the airport VIP
lounge the call to the White
House put through by Premier
Shimon Peres.
His brief pause at a tourist
lookout on Mt. Scopus was a
private interlude between the
cheering crowds at the airport

people
and 3,000 ecstatic well-wishers
who a few minutes later would
surround him and Avital at the
Western Wall.
In his statement at the air-
port, delivered in fluent,
almost accentless English,
Shcharansky acknowledged
the "storm of compliments
which were poured on Avital's
and my head." They "do not
make the task to speak
easier," he said.
"But what makes it really
easier is understanding the
fact that all these compliments
we must share between all the
of Israel, between
many people all over the
world, among Jews in the
Soviet Union who continue the
struggle for their rights. And
the congratulations which we
hear now concern not only the
two of us, but also all those
people, Jews and non-Jews,
people from the high political
and grass-roots level whose
struggle made this day
possible."
Shcharansky has been
described as an aliya activist

Order Members Receive Long Jail Sentences
By ELLEN MARKS
SEATTLE (JTA) Ten
members of a radical neo-Nazi
gang have been given stiff
prison terms ranging between
40 and 100 years for following
a bizarre plot to overthrow the
government and establish an
Aryan society.
U.S. District Judge Walter
McGovern made little com-

Good Economic News
Inflation Down During January
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The inflation rate was zero in
the last two weeks of January,
and the estimate of about 1.5
percent for the full month
would be the smallest rise of
the consumer price index in
eight years. That and other
good economic news just
released by the Central
Bureau of Statistics has put
Finance Minister Yitzhak
Modai in a strong position for
his upcoming contract negotia-
tions with nistadrut.
He said last week that with
inflation virtually non-existent
there is no need to abandon the
wage/price freeze which he
credited for ending the spiral

of devaluation and price hikes.
Modai urged the trade union
federation not to demand
wage increases but rather
maintain the present situation
in which consumer buying
power is guaranteed.
The successes of the
economic austerity programs
is threatened however by the
Cabinet's decision to increase
the defense budget by $37
million. Modai warned that if
this trend continues it would
undo what has been ac-
complished so far in setting
the economy right.
Israel's trade deficit shrank
by 16.4 percent last month
compared to the same amount
a year ago, an improvement at-
tributed to the combined ef-
fects of plunging oil prices, a
weaker U.S. dollar, and a rise
in Israel's military exports.
Minister of Commerce and In-
dustry Ariel Sharon expressed
satisfaction with the latest
figures that showed a 16 per-
cent increase of industrial
exports.
They totalled $517 million
last month, a 2.6 percent in-
crease over January, 1985. Im-
ports amounted to $593
million, 3.5 percent higher
than the same month last year

racketeering and conspiracy.
Prosecutors, during a three-
and-a-half month trial last fall,
accused the group of commit-
ting two murders, robbery,
counterfeiting, and other
crimes'as it sought to kill Jews,
deport minorities.and create
an all-white nation.
The harshest sentences went
to those accused of committing
murder. McGovern ordered a
100-year sentence for Bruce
Carroll Pierce, suspected of
being the triggerman in the
June 1984 macmnegun slaying
of Denver radio personality
Alan Berg.
Government authorities
claimed Pierce, 31, of Hayden
Lake, Idaho, and several other
group members decided to kill
Berg because he was Jewish
and relished baiting anti-
Semites who phoned him dur-
ing his call-in show.
Also given a 100-year
sentence was Randolph Duey,
34, of Spokane, Wash. Duey
was accused of murdering
fellow white supremacist
Walter West because he was
believed to be leaking informa-
tion about The Order.
Gary Lee Yarbrough,
sentenced to 60 years for
racketerring and armed rob-
bery, compared the defendants
to patriots, and told McGovern
during the hearing that the
lengthy trial was a sham.
"This was a political trial,"
said Yarbrough, 29, of Sand-
point, Idaho. "These men are
no more criminals than the
men who took part in the
Boston Tea Party." Yar-
brough warned the judge that
The Order's cause would be
promoted by "200,000 faithful
members and 100,000 sup-
porters. There will be many

more. The blood will flow and

But Assitant U.S. Attorney
Gene Wilson, who headed the
government's six-member pro-
secution team, praised the
sentences and said they would
serve as warning for others
who commit serious crimes for
ideological purposes.
The youngest Order
member, 23-year-old Richard
Kemp of Salinas, Calif., was
given a 60-year prison term,
while the six other members
were sentenced to 40 years
each.
Eight of the 10 defendants
have said they will appeal their
sentences to the Ninth Circuit
Court of Appeals, while the re-
maining two have not yet filed
the required appeal notices.
Federal law requires the
defendants to serve at least 10
years before they can be con-
sidered for parole, although
they are likely to serve longer

Jewish Agency Week Promotes
t
Israel-Diaspora Partnership
Local Meeting With JA Leaders Planned For Feb. 23
NEW YORK (JTA) A
joint statement endorsing
Jewish Agency Week (Feb.
20-27) was issued recently by
the heads of the four major
American Jewish organiza-
tions most closely related to
the work of the Jewish Agency
for Israel.
The statement, signed by
Shoshana Cardin, president of
the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions; Irwin Field, chairman of
the United Israel Appeal; Alex
Grass, national chairman of
the United Jewish Appeal; and
Bernice Tannenbaum, chair-
man of the World Zionist
Organization-American Sec-
tion, said in part:
"Jewish Agency Week will
provide a unique opportunity
for interaction between Israel
and North American leader-
ship and will allow for a
deepening of the partnership
between Israel and North
American Jewry."
Jewish Agency Week, a
series of visits of Jewish com-
munities throughout North
America, will involve members
of the Board of Governors of
the Jewish Agency for Israel
and senior Agency staff. The
Governors and staff will meet
Mendel Kaplan
with community campaign
leadership, Boards of Direc-
tors of Jewish Federations,
Jewish Agency committees of
Federations, and Zionist
leadership designated by the
individual communities.
In the Palm Beaches, an
open meeting with two leaders
of the Jewish Agency will take
place on Sunday, Feb. 23 at 8
p.m. at Temple Israel, 1901 N.
Flagler Drive.
The meeting will provide
community leaders the oppor-
Shlomo Gazit
tunity to hear Mendel Kaplan,
chairman of the board of
trustees of Keren Hayesod,
member of the board of gover-
nors of the Jewish Agency,
and one of the leaders of the
South African Jewish
community.
Also on hand will be Shlomo
Gazit, director general of the
Jewish Agency, former presi-
dent of Ben-Gurion University
and former Commander
General of Israeli military
intelligence.
Jewish Leaders Pledge
The Fight For Freedom Will Continue
NEW YORK (JTA) r
American Jewish leaders hail-
ed the release of Soviet Jewish
aliya activist Anatoly
Shcharansky, but they also
stressed that the fight on
behalf of Soviet Jewry is not
over yet and that thousands of
Jews are still waiting in the
USSR to receive permission to
emigrate.
Kenneth Bialkin, chairman
of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, ex-
pressed "joy" at Shcharan-
sky's freedom and praised
President Reagan and
Secretary of State George
Shultz "for their unremitting
and ultimately successful ef-
forts to win his release. Their
commitment to the cause of
Soviet Jewry merits our
deepest appreciation."
Noting that such refuseniks
as Yosef Begun and Idal Nudel
have been waiting for many
years for an exit visa, Bialkin
said, "We will continue our ef-
forts to call to world attention
the consistent violations by the
Soviet Union of the solemn
commitments which it made in
signing the Helsinki accords
more than 10 years ago," on
the issue of human rights.
Gerald Kraft, president of
B'nai B'rith International,
declared, "We can only rejoice
that Shcharansky's bitter
ordeal has finally come to an
end and that he can rejoin his
remarkably courageous and
steadfast wife, Avital." He
said, however, that Jews in the
USSR "are still denied basic
freedom as Jews," and that
the Jewish community in the
United States "will continue

Israelis, Egyptians Hold Friendly Talks on
Taba and Normalization of Relations
JERUSALEM -*^JTA) Israeli diplomats returning
from Cairo after the latest round of talks on the Taba
border dispute reported an unexpectedly warm and friend-
ly atmosphere among the Israeli and Egyptian working
groups dealing with both Taba and the parallel issues of
normalization of relations between the two countries.
Nevertheless, thorny problems remain to be resolved.
The Israeli team is headed by Gen. (Res.) Avraham
Tamir, director general of the Prime Minister's Office, and
David Kimche, director general of the Foreign Ministry.
Their talks wound up in Cairo last week and will resume
soon when the Israelis host the Egyptian teams in
Herzliyah. These are the first negotiations since Israel's In-
ner Cabinet accepted in principle last Jan. 13 Egypt's de-
mand to submit the Taba dispute to international
arbitration.
Egyptian Foreign Minister Ismet Abdel Meguid told
Tamir and Kimche that all restrictions on trade with Israeli
firms have been lifted and that he anticipated an early
meeting between the Egyptian and Israeli tourism
ministers to discuss ways to boost tourist traffic between
the two countries.
Protest Issued Over Election of a Former Nazi
Party Member as an Officer of UN Human
Rights Unit
LOS ANGELES (JTA) The Simon Wiesenthal
Center has protested to United Nations Secretary General
Javier Perez de Cuellar, over the Feb. 3 vote at the UN in
Geneva, which elected a former Nazi Party member as vice
president of the UN's Commission on Human Rights.
Hermann Klenner, who entered the Nazi Party on April
20,1944 (Hitler's birthday) with a card bearing the number
9756141, was nominated for the post of second vice presi-
dent for the Commission on Human Rights by the Soviet
Union's Byelorussian delegate, with the backing of Arab
representatives. The nomination was approved by voice ac-
clamation over the vehement protest of Israel's Am-
bassador Efraim Dubek.
A letter from Simon Wiesenthal Center officials to the
Secretary General said, in part, "With the moral stock of
the United Nations already at an all-time low, it is shocking
that an individual who sought to reap the benefits of
fascism by enthusiastically joining the rank and file of
Hitler's supporters should now be elected by acclamation to
an important post dedicated to human rights and the digni-
ty of man."
Peres Describes Efforts to Bring the PLO Into
the Peace Process as a 'Total Failure'
JERUSALEM (JTA) Premier Shimon Peres said
recently that attempts to bring the PLO into the peace pro-
cess have been a "total failure." Peres spoke at a reception
in Tel Aviv after he was briefed by Wat Cluverius, the U.S.
special envoy to the Middle East, who came to Jerusalem
from Amman. Cluverius also briefed Foreign Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir at a separate meeting.
The American diplomat had an indirect dialogue with
PLO chief Yasir Arafat. The intermediaries were Hanna
Seniora, editor of the East Jerusalem Arabic daily Al-
Fajer, and Faez Abu Rahma, a lawyer from Gaza, both pro-
minent figures in the Palestinian community.
Arafat departed Amman after apparently rejecting
American terms offered for PLO participation in peace
negotiations and stating conditions of his own that were
unacceptable to the U.S. to Israel and possibly even to King
Hussein of Jordan.
Although diplomatic sources here and in Amman insisted
that efforts are continuing to bridge the gap between Hus-
sein and Arafat, their talks have ended. Israeli sources
publicly dismissed claims from Amman that the talks were
still alive.
U.S. Vetoes Another
Anti-Israel Resolution
By YITZHAK RABI
UNITED NATIONS -
(JTA) For the third time in
the last four weeks, the United
States vetoed an anti-Israel
resolution in the Security
Council. The latest veto, was
on a resolution condemning
Israel for its interception of a
Libyan aircraft on Feb. 4. The
resolution termed the Israeli
action an "act of aerial hijack -
ing and piracy." The
15-member Council voted 10-1
for the resolution. France, Bri-
tain, Australia and Denmark
abstained.
Explaining the veto, the
U.S. Ambassador to the UN,
Vernon Walters, said: "My
government cannot accept a
resolution which implies that
interception of an aircraft is
wrongful pef se, without
regard to the possibility that
the action may be justified. We
must be clear that "terrorist
violence, and not the response
to terrorist violence, is the
cause of the cycle of violence
which tragically mars the Mid;
die East and the entire world."
Adding that the resolution
failed to uphold the right of
countries to intercept planes
under "exceptional cir-
cumstances," Walters said,

Recruitment Efforts Continuing
In preDaration for Super
Sunday Magic on Sunday,
March 16, the recruitment
committee has been hard at
work amassing a growing
cadre of volunteers to man the
phones during this year's com-
munitywide phonathon.
"With the theme of Super
Sunday Magic, we're attemp-
ting to make the experience of
volunteering a special one,"
said Super Sunday co-chairs
Stacey and Mark Levy.
"Everyone will be part of an
upbeat and enjoyable day, and
knowing that they're making
an important contribution to
our Jewish community and to
all Jews, the volunteers will
feel all the more invigorated."
"We've made good progress
in our recruitment, noted
Sam Wadler, a member of the
recruitment committee, "but
we still have a long way to go."
Noting that at least 14,000
calls will be made on Super
Sunday to both new con-
tributors and those who have
yet to fulfill their '86 pledges,
Stacey Levy added, "Without
people to man them, the
phones just sit there. We'll
need about 60-65 people dur-
ing each 2Mt our session."
"Super Sunday's importance
transcends the raising of
money," said Mark Levy. "It's
often the first contact that a
new Jewish resident has with
the overall Jewish comunity
and it provides an opportunity
for those who are interested to
become more integrally involv-
ed in Jewish communal life."
All those interested in
becoming a part of Super Sun-
day Magic are urged to fill out

Hunters Run Chairmen Anticipate
Tutting On The Ritz' March 8
Phyllis Schain, Edward Schain, Naomi Kessler and Harris
Kculer.
Arnold L. Lampert, general
campaign chairman of the
1986 Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County/United
Jewish Appeal campaign, has
announced that Mr. and Mrs.
Harris Kessler and Mr. and
Mrs. Edward Schain will serve
as general co-chairpersons of
Hunters Run this year.
Noting the outstanding con-
tributions of the Hunters Run
community in the past, and so
far this year, Lampert said,
"The leadership abilities of the
Kesslers and the Schains have
been instrumental in all facets
of the Hunters Run campaign,
including the upcoming
Dinner-Dance on March 8."
Naomi and Harris Kessler
have lived in Boynton Beach
for six years. Mrs. Kessler
served as deeorations
chairperson for the First
Hunters Run Gala Dinner-
Dance in 1988, and the follow-
ing year increased her involve-
ment by serving as Dinner-
Dance co-chairperson. Last
year she did double duty, as
Hunters Run general co-
chairperson and again serving
as Dinner-Dance co-
chairperson. Mr. Kessler serv-
ed as chairman of the
homebuilder's division of the
Allied Jewish Appeal of
Southern New Jersey, and was
active on various committees
of the geriatric home there, in-
cluding service as chairman of
the home's long range plann-
ing committee.
Commenting on their trip to
Israel in 1983, the Kesslers
said their most vivid memory
is of the Simchat Torah
celebration. "I could not
believe the outpouring of joy. I
learned that nowhere else but
in Israel can you proclaim your
Sride and jubiliation in being
ewish without having other
people stare at you," said Mrs.
Kessler.
Mr. and Mrs. Kessler feel

Anatoly Sharansky: He's
Where He Longed To Be
It is difficult to conceive of, Anatoly
Sharansky is free. Finally, one man's agony
in the Soviet Garden of Eden is over.
Sharansky, who over the years has become a
symbol of oppressed people everywhere, is
finally where he belongs: with his wife and
family in Israel, the country he longed to live
in.
For this, he has his wife, Avital, to thank.
She it was who for years kept the story of
her husband's imprisonment at the hands of
a paranoid Soviet Union emblazoned in the
headlines of the world's press.
For this, he has such leaders as President
Reagan, French President Francois Mitter-
rand and West Germany's Chancellor
Helmut Kohl to thank. Theirs was a steady
drumbeat they kept up in the cause of
Sharansky's freedom at the highest levels of
Soviet leadership and on every occassion
that Soviet officials met with Western heads
of state in their own capital cities.
Soviet Boast Was Wrong
The Soviets were clearly wrong when they
imprisoned Sharansky and boasted to him
that he could say goodbye to the world out-
side because no one would care about his
fate. This may be what they counted on, but
it didn't turn out that way; When Sharansky
walked across the Glienicke Bridge from
East Berlin into West Berlin, the Soviets
were making a clear confession that they
had been defeated by world opinion.
Furthermore, the United States deserves
special praise for its insistence that Sharan-
sky had to make his walk to freedom by
himself, not together with the undercover
agents who were also a part of the exchange
arrangement. From the U.S. point of view,
as indeed from any one else's who knew the
truth, Sharansky was no spy.
In this, too, the Soviet Union, acceding to
the U.S. demand, for Sharansky did indeed
walk alone, demonstrated to a watching
world that their original charges against
Sharansky were lies.
Only One Man Freed
What all this says at first glance is that the
masters at the Kremlin can be swayed from
their paranoid delusions, given sufficient
pressure from abroad. Still, the fact is that
m the release of Anatoly Sharansky, only
one man has been freed even if it is a man of
such symbolic importance and personal
dignity as characterize him.
As the South Florida Conference on
Soviet Jewry points out in a statement in
Miami, "Even as he is freed from prison,
and from the larger jail of the Soviet state,
other Soviet Jews also guilty of the 'crime'
of wishing to live as Jews in the Soviet
Union, or to emigrate to Israel, or be
reunited with their families, remain harass-
ed, arrested, imprisoned."
We agree. As much as all of us rejoice at
Anatoly Sharansky's release, until the
others are free, the world cannot be appeas-
ed by this gesture.

By M.J. Rosenberg
Prime Minister Shimon
Peres completed a 10-day sw-
ing through Europe with both
friends and adversaries agree-
ing that his fence-building mis
sion has been successful. It has
been almost 19 years since
most European countries
shifted toward the Arab side of
the Arab-Israeli conflict but
Peres is turning things
around. Israel has established
diplomatic ties with Spain and
has warmed relations with
Great Britain and West Ger-
many, two states which tilted
heavily away from Israel in re-
cent years.
Peres' success is not based
entirely on his powers of per-
suasion or his generally
favorable image on the conti-
nent. Peres, and Israel, are the
beneficiaries of the continued
decline in demand for
petroleum the one thing the
Arab world can offer the Euro-
peans. Recently petroleum
that had sold for $30 a barrel
in late January was selling at
just above $20. Unseasonably
cold weather in Europe ano
the eastern United States
slowed the decline in prices but
it was still a buyer's market.
Peres' friendly dealings with
the Europeans were a direct
product of the oil glut.
In Great Britain, aswim in
North Seal oil, Prime Minster
Margaret Thathcher gave
Peres a warm reception. That-
cher has cooled toward the
PLO ever since it rejected a
British-brokered Jordanian-
Palestinian communique last
fall which called for a Palesti-
nian state and recognition of
Israel. After meeting That-
cher, Peres said that he ex-
pected a "gradual improve-
ment" in Israeli-British rela-
tions. Speaking on Jan. 23,
Peres noted that Britain's
already the world's leading
purchaser of Israeli goods and
indicated that he expects more
trade.
He also said and this was
later confirmed by Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir
that London wold soon stop
assisting the Arab boycott of
Israel. On the political front,
Peres said he believes British
"enthusiasm toward the PLO
is on the downswing." He add-
ed that Britain is playing a
helpful role in promoting peace
talks between Israel and Lon-
don's traditional ally, Jordan.
However, later reports from
London indicated that the
Thatcher government would
not pressure Hussein on direct
negotiations.
Peres left Britain for a
three-day visit to the German
Federal Republic. Saying that
no trip by an Israeli leader to
Germany could be a "simple,
routine visit," Peres made his
first stop at the Bergen-Belsen
death camp where he prayed.
The main topics on Peres'
agenda while in Germany were
said to be convincing the Ger-
mans not to sell arms to the
Arabs, encouraging German
anti-terrorist efforts, increas-
ing cooperation on security
matters and protecting Israeli
imports to the Common
Market.
A Bonn government!
spokesman welcomed Peres'
visit and said that West Ger-
many will always feel a "moral
obligation" to Israel. Accor-
ding to Israel radio on Jan. 25,
he added that Germany also
wants to continue to have good
ties with the Arabs.
The New York Times
reported on Jan. 29 that a top
aide to Peres said that "one of
the most striking features" of
the prime minister's trip was
the Europeans' "declining in-
terest in a role for the PLO in
future talks." The adviser also
said that the prime ministers
of Spain, Great Britain, The
Netherlands and Chancellor
Kohl of West Germany praised
Peres' efforts to seek direct
negotiations with Jordan and
non-PLO Palestinians.
The Jordanian newspaper
Saivat AlShab, commenting
on Spain's establishment of
diplomatic relations with
Israel and Peres' trip,
lamented that "the European
stand on our issues is on the
retreat, and the prevailing at-
mosphere encourages Peres to
push this retreat even further
to the point where the Euro-
pean stand comes closer to the
U.S. stand. The only Arab
presence left in Europe these
days is terrorism and what is
left of the oil influence." The
paper urged the Arab League
to convene an Arab-European
conference to keep Israel from
"penetrating our European
lines ."
Warning Shot
Every so often something
happens in the Middle East to
send a warning shot
screeching over the heads of
those who believe that the
Arab world has come to terms
implicitly if not explicitly
with Israel. A warning salvo
was fired again last month,
although it passed with little
notice in the Western press.
After joining the Common
Market, Spain ended years of
hesitation and became the last
Western European state to
establish diplomatic relations
with Israel. This overdue,
routine development triggered
a round of denunciations from
Arab rejectionist states and
relative moderates alike. Reac-
tion from Jordan whose
King speaks in the West about
making peace with Israel
and from Syria whose presi-
dent rejects anything but a pax
Damascus sounded inter-
changeable. Commentaries
from Iraq, Saudi Arabia and
the smaller Gulf states alike all
spoke of a "betrayal" of Arab
interests, of a victory for the
"Zionist enemy." And they
hinted none-too-subtly of
damage to Madrid's sizeable
interests in the Middle East.
In Jordan, the newspaper
Ad-Duetur called Spanish-
Israeli ties "a painful political
fact," adding that "we cannot
but express our deep
regret..." The paper blamed
"the weak Arab situation" for
allowing Spain's "retreat" and
similar actions by African
states which renewed relations
with Israel. And it saw the
move as a reward to the Peres
government, which it describ-
ed as "more aggressive, ex-
tremist, and opposed to the
just and permanent peace than
before."
From Syria, Damascus
Radio reported that the
Secretary General of the Arab
Parliamentary Union (APU)
"vehemently denounced"
Spain's action. Abdal Rahman
Burawi "said that this Spanish
decision is a great setback to
Arab-Spanish relations, and
has taken place at a time when
the Zionist enemy's racist and

Midrasha Inaugurates
Sunday Morning Classes
For the first time in its __^_________ ,
seven-year history, the
Midrasha-Judaica High
School, sponsored by the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County (in association
with local synagogue schools,
the Jewish Community Day
School and the Jewish Com-
munity Center), held Sunday
morning classes. This second
session of Midrasha, in addi-
tion to the regular Wednesday
evening classes held from 6 to
9:30 p.m., was created in
response to a need expressed
by parents and teens who
found that Wednesday even-

In cooperation with the
Education Committee of Tem-
ple Israel, the Midrasha Com-
mittee met and explored in
depth the needs, potential, and
feasibility of such a program
and made the decision to in-
itiate it as a "pilot" program
to be run on an experimental
basis for the spring semester
of 1986.
The Committee stipulated
three requirements to make
the program a reality: a
minimum of 10 new students
(never before having attended
Midrasha or those who wished
to return after a lapse in atten-
dance); the incorporation of all
the normal academic re-
quirements of Wednesday
evening school; and financial
self-sufficiency to avoid the im-

tions in the midst of the pre-

All of these requirements
were met when 11 new
students came together for the
first time on Sunday, Feb. 2.
The sessions will meet every
Sunday from 9:30 a.m.-noon,
beginning with a 15 minute
breakfast upon arrival and
three academic class periods
from 9:45 a.m.-noon. Taught
by Ann Lynn Lipton, director
of the Midrasha program, and
Ms. Barbara Fink, experienc-
ed high school literature and
journalism teacher, the pro-
gram will include courses deal-
ing with "Issues Facing

however, that the Israeli in-
terception of the Libyan plane
did not meet the criterion that
a state has the "strongest and
clearest evidence that the ter-
rorists are on board."
Binyamin Netanyahu,
Israel's Ambassador to the
UN, told the Council: "We are
witnessing a new kind of war
a regime that systematically
conducts worldwide terrorism.
What are we going to do about
this kind of phenomenon?
What are we going to do to
prevent future Romes, Vien-
nas and the like," referring to
the recent terrorist attacks

Netanyahu charged that
Libya, Syria and Iran have
supported many terrorist at-
tacks. Some of the terrorist at-
tacks were undertaken by the
governments of these coun-
tries, Netanyahu said.

Helping People
By NED GOLDBERG,
ACSW, LCSW
A -personal view from
the Acting 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).
Counseling. It's been called
an art, a science, a pathway to
solving problems, and a tool to
self-understanding. Whatever
the definition, counseling is a
method used by many people
to overcome some obstacle in
their lives.
What makes counseling at-
tractive, and at the same time
threatening, is that it involves
the investment of time,
energy, and emotion on the
part of the person seeking the
counseling. One person, a con-
selor, has an opportunity to
help someone "wno wants to
change."
Sometimes individuals call
JFCS unsure of why they need
counseling, or unable to ar-
ticulate their problem or goal.
One of the first things that I
try to determine when an am-
bivalent or inarticulate client
M A
Ned Goldberg
calls is whether the person is
seeking a resolution of per-
sonal conflict or an avenue to
personal growth. Conflict
resolution may require some
relatively quick answers, while
achieving personal growth is a
longer process.
At JFCS counseling covers a
number of topic areas such as
family relationships, emotional
reactions to health problems,
trauma and loss, as well as
employment and career issues.
Counseling is facilitated for in-
dividuals, couples, families and
groups.
All caseworkers at JFCS
currently have Master's
degrees in social work, and our
vocational guidance specialist
has a Master's degree in
guidance and counseling. Most
are licensed by the State of
Florida as clinical social
workers and some are also
licensed as marriage and fami-
ly therapists.
It's a difficult decision, for
some, to admit to themselves
that they have a problem that
counseling could address. Un-
fortunately, a decision not to
seek counseling assistance can
close a door to insight and
solutions.

Children's Service of Palm

profit agency designed to meet

Appraisal Requirements And Israel Bonds
'A Promise for the Future'
The Endowment Fund Of The
Jewish Federation Of Palm Beach County
By ARNOLD
I. SCHWARTZMAN
Endowment Director
The IRS has just announced
a modification to the definition
of "publicly traded securities"
(as set forth in the present
temporary regulations) which
will expand the definition so as
to release Israel Bonds from
the "qualified appraisal" re-
quirements noted earlier in
our discussion on non-cash con-
tributions. There are re-
Fight For Freedom
Continued from Page 2-
its efforts to help those Soviet
Jews who wish to leave to do
so."
In a joint statement, Howard
Friedman, president, and
David Gordis, executive vice
president, of the American
Jewish Committee, said, "At
the same time that we rejoice
in Shcharansky's freedom, we
are ever mindful of the tens of
thousands of other Soviet
Jews who remain behind,
denied the opportunity for an
exit visa. We reaffirm our
pledge to continue our efforts
until they, too, are able to
establish new lives in Israel
and be reunited with their
families."
Abraham Foxman, associate
national director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, said he welcomed
Shcharansky's release but add-
ed that there cannot be full re-
joicing "while hundreds of
thousands of other Soviet
Jews continue to suffer
unable to live as Jews in the
Soviet Union, unable to
leave."
Rabbi Alexander Schindler,
president of the Union of
American Hebrew Congrega-
tions, stated, "The release of
Shcharansky confirms once
again that the Soviet Union
cannot forever resist the force
of world opinion. It reminds us
too that, blessed as we are
with freedom to think and
speak and act, American Jews
must never forget or abandon
their brothers and sisters,
who, because they wish to live
as Jews and join their families
in Israel, have been persecuted
and imprisoned by Soviet
authorities."
The National Conference on
Soviet Jewry said, "We are ex-
tremely grateful to this Ad-
ministration for the continuing
public and private efforts in
helping secure Shcharansky's
freedom and having him
repatriated to Israel to join his
wife, Avital."
It added, "We trust that the
release of Anatoly Shcharan-
sky indicates a change in
Soviet behavior, as it seeks to
build a new relationship with
this country. In so doing, we
look forward to the relase of
hundreds of thousands of other
Jews awaiting to leave, some
for more than 15 years."
Bernice Tannenbaum, chair-
man of the American Section
of the World Zionist Organiza-
tion, said, "Soviet propaganda
attempted unsuccessfully to
camouflage Shcharansky's im-
prisonment for Zionist and
humanist activities, as a
defender of human rights, and
the Helsinki accords, with the
canard of espionage. It is so
fitting, so right, so inspiring
that he has already arrived in
the State that welcomes him
while it continues to burn a
lamp of hope for his fellow
Soviet Jews."
Chaim Aron, head of the
department of immigration
and absorption of the Jewish
Agency, said, "While we
celebrate the release of
Shcharansky let us not fall into
the trap of forgetting the other
Prisoners of Zion and the
400,000 Jews who have ap-
plied to leave the Soviet

quirements set forth for
securities (including Israel
Bonds) not presently con-
sidered to be publicly traded to
fall within the definition, but
once the requirements are met
a "qualified appraisal" of such
securities is no longer re-
quired. Rather a contributor
need only complete Section B,
Parts I and II or IRS Form
8283 and attach it to his or her
appropriate tax return.
It is our understanding that
the Development Corporation
of Israel ("DCI") intends to
satisfy the new IRS re-
quirements so as to qualify
Israel Bonds as ''publicly trad-
ed securities." DCI will publish
the "average trading price" in
Barron's beginning with the
last quarter in 1985. While the
"qualified appraisal" require-
ment will be relieved, the fair
market value of a gift of Israel
Bonds, or any other security or
property, for purposes of the
charitable deductions, is still to
be determined under the
regulations relating to valua-
tion of property gifts.
At this time we have no in-
formation which would in-
dicate that Israel Bonds in-
tends to have average trading
prices published for the first
three quarters of 1985. Thus.
you should be advised that
gifts of Israel Bonds made
from January 1, 1985 through
September 30, 1985, must be
reported (if over $500) on
Form 8283, Section B, Part III
(Certification of Appraiser) if
in excess of $5,000. Form
8288, must be filed with the tax
return for the tax year in
which the donor contributed
the property and first
deducted the contribution.

McFarlane, Bialkin Address ADL Leaders
Ex-Security Advisor Calls
For Continued Military Build-Up
By LLOYD RESNICK
In his remarks to a dinner
gathering of the national
leadership of B'nai B'rith's
Anti-Defamation League
(ADL), Robert McFarlane,
former National Security Ad-
visor to President Reagan,
concentrated on three topics:
the present and future state of
national security, U.S.-Soviet
relations, and counter-
terrorism policies.
He began lightheartedly by
raying "It is good to be among
friends for a change," an allu-
sion to his disagreements with
Chief of State Donald Regan,
which may have caused him to
resign his administration post.
He went on to praise the
ADL's "resolute struggle
against discrimination" and
described the organization as
"a source of enormous en-
couragement and strength to
me.
McFarlane admitted that, in
terms of national security,
"We've come far in five
years," but he warned, "our
deterrence through military
strength must be sustained."
He said that five years of
military strengthening was
not sufficient to close the gap
between the U.S. and the
Soviets, who, he added, during
the 70's had become condition-
ed to making adventurist
forays without any response
from the west.
While recognizing that the
world will not endure the
nuclear age without
U.S.-Soviet dialogue taking
place, McFarlane argued that
it is naive to think that simple
trading relationships between
the two superpowers will fun-
damentally resolve political
differences.
"The differences between
our nations will exist, and the
U.S. will promote its interests
and those of its allies,"
McFarlane said. Nevertheless,
he stressed that "we must
seek dialogue whenever possi-
ble to lower the level of the
nuclear threat."
McFarlane expressed doubt
that the current expansion of
U.S. military resources would
continue due to the public's
disenchantment with defense
spending. He argued against
the belief that dollars for
defense are not wisely spent,
calling it a "false notion.
"One measure of Israel's
wisdom," he said, referring to
the Jewish State's reliance on
military deterrence, "is that
in terms of dollar outlays, the
else."
McFarlane pointed out that,
in terms of dollars outlays, the
Soviet Union's military expen-
ditures are far greater than
those of the U.S. He warned
that defense spending cuts will
encourage the Soviets to
spread once again their mantle
of expansionism as they did in
the late 70's, with no concern
for the consequences.
"If Congress reduces
defense spending," McFarlane
declared, "in particular the
Strategic Defense Initiative, it
will signal to Mr. Gorbachev a
fundamental change in the
resolve of the U.S. .. Gor-
bachev will see no need to
ADL National Chairman

worry about negotiating for an
arms agreement if the U.S.
Congress makes the move
unilaterally."
Claiming that a "profoundly
important" arms control
agreement is at hand,
McFarlane added that "it
won't happen if we don't stay
strong.' Losing military
authority, McFarlane said,
"would look to the Soviets as if
the magic has worn off, as if it
has been a five year flash in
the pan."
Turning to the subject of ter-
rorism, McFarlane labeled re-
cent western responses
"uncertain and cautious."
"Our task is to encounter
this menace and eradicate it
while preserving our values,"
McFarlane said.
He added that improved in-
telligence gathering capability
and U.S. cooperation with
Israel and Europe as allies is
essential in halting the spread
of terrorism.
"The U.S. must strengthen
its clandestine capability and
deploy it effectively with the
cooperation of our allies," he
said.
"We have reacted against
the tentacles of the octopus,"
he added metaphorically, "but
have not hit its nerve center."
McFarlane called the recent
refusal of U.S. allies to support
economic sanctions against
Libya "unconscionable."
Moreover, he said, "We have
to persuade our allies that they
can't make deals with ter-
rorists. If they provide a haven
for terrorists, they are also
guilty."
Regarding U.S. policy in the
Continued on Page 13
Kenneth Bialkin, national
chairman of the Anti-
Defamation League (ADL) of
B'nai B'rith and head of the
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations, began an ad-
dress to the ADL executive
meeting in Palm Beach on
Feb. 7 by saying, "The ADL is
at the vanguard of Jewish
survival."
Bialkin supported his claim
by citing several instances of
ADL intervention which had
positive results. He pointed to
the recent convictions of the
Seattle 10, the ADL's par-
ticipation in the Zionism-
Racism controversy and the
Pollard affair.
"I believe that our involve-
ment in these events has had
very positive impact," Bialkin
said, but he added that the
ADL faces "a continuation of
perplexing, serious problems."
The primary problem,
Bialkin claimed, is the Arab re-
jection of Israel as a legitimate
entry. He called the "cold
peace" with Egypt "one of the
most disappointing elements
in the Middle East today."
The Israeli public, he noted,
is becoming disenchanted with
the failure of the Egyptians to
adhere to the spirit of the
Camp David accords and with
Egypt's inadequate response
to the Ras Burka killings.
Bialkin suggested that "a time
may come when we ask for a
review of our nation's support
for Egypt."
Bialkin also expressed con-
cern with regard to the
deteriorating situation in
Lebanon. "Syria is extending
its hegemony and Lebanon
could become a protectorate of
Syria," he said, while pointing
out the altema* i possibility
of a Christian r At and resul-
tant bloodbath.
"Sad days are coming for
Lebanon either way," Bialkin
concluded.
Bialkin characterized U.S.
policy in the region as "am-
biguous," and he argued that
as long as Syria grows bolder
with no significant solution
proposed, there exists "an in-
exorable movement toward
military confrontation." Mov-
ing to the eastern front
Bialkin described Jordan's
King Hussein as "the man in
Kenneth J. Bialkin
the middle," noting that Hus-
sein seems "mortgaged to the
Palestinians" and unable to
act as courageously as he rays
he can.
Bialkin went on to warn that
the administration's recent
withdrawal of the Jordan arms
sale proposal "does not reflect
a significant change in U.S.
policy; rather, it is a political
expression to Hussein, telling
him that he won't get arms if
he doesn't come to the peace
table. Recalcitrance won't be
rewarded."
As time and prospects for
peace pass, Bialkin noted,
Israelis become more skep-
tical, which accounts for the
recent upswing in right wine
political activity. Despite the
willingness of Shimon Peres
"time is running out," accor-
ding to Bialkin.
With regard to the prolifera.
tion of terrorism, Bialkin said
"We must call for more to be
done than has been done." He
insisted that tile source of ter
rorism lies in the Palestine
Liberation Organization
Consequently we must
disestablish the PLO from
world diplomacy in order to
make inroads against ter-
rorism," he said.
"We will continue our ef-
forts to influence other Arab
nations to stop funding the
PLO; we must make our impa-
tience known," he added.
The delegitimization of
Israel, in the press, a cor-
ollary problem with which to
ADL deals, was also addressed
by Bialkin.
Suggesting that the ADL
must continue fighting against
all specious journalistic attacks
on Israel, Bialkin raid, "We
are where we always have

Revised Expectations
By M.J. Rosenberg
Tom Friedman, the New
York Times Jerusalem cor-
respondent and probably
the best foreign correspondent
in Israel has written a land-
mark piece about the Middle
East peace process. "No Illu-
sions: Israel Reassesses Its
Chances for Peace" (New York
Times Magazine, Jan. 26) pro-
vides a crash course in the new
realism of the Middle East
conflict.
Prior to being posted in
Israel, Friedman, like most
distant observers of the Israeli
scene, believed that any solu-
tion to the Arab-Israeli conflict
would be territorial. Israel
would exchange land the
West Bank and Gaza for
peace.
Now, however, after a few
years in Israel, Friedman sees
that the territorial option is
dying if not dead. In June,
Israel will have been in control
of the West Bank for 19 years,
half the life of the state and ex-
actly as long as Jordan
possessed the territory. No
fence separates pre- and
post-1967 Israel. In fact, many
Israelis have little sense of
where pre-'67 Israel ends and
the West Bank begins. Dotted
lines exist only on maps.
Friedman believes that it is
the experience with Egypt
after Camp David that serious-
ly dampened Israeli en-
thusiasm for dividing the West
Bank with Jordan and the
Palestinians. Friedman quotes
one Israeli as saying that
Jerusalem expected peace
with Egypt to be something
akin to the U.S. relationship
with its neighbors. "But with
Egypt... Israelis discovered
that the opposite of making
war was not making war. And
that 'peace' was the relation-
ship the United States has
with the Soviet Union, not
with Canada."
That has been a rude
awakening for Israelis. Few
would trade the state of "not
making war" with Egypt for
its alternative.
Nevertheless, it is not sur-
prising that in light of that
example Israelis are very
skeptical about what "peace '
with Jordan would mean.
And there is an important
difference between Jordan and
Egypt, one that makes an
Egyptian-style settlement
with Jordan even less appeal-
ing. Writes Friedman: "With
Egypt, Israel can afford to
have a cold peace. There is the
vast Sinai Desert separating
the two countries and serving
as a buffer between armies
and peoples. But on the West
Bank there can be no cold
peace; it has to be a peace bas-
ed on some kind of real rela-
tions, or nothing at all. The
distances are too small; there
will be no Sinai for both sides
to sulk behind."
He adds that few Israelis will
agree to a withdrawal from the
West Bank that does not allow
for continued access to the
area. "It is precisely for this
reason that the negative prece-
dent being set between Israel
and Egypt is so dangerous,
and why the word 'peace' for
most Israelis has to be re-
endowed with some content
and sense of joy before people
can even begin to consider a
new initiative that deals with
Jordan and the West Bank."
But what sort of "new in-
itiative" if territorial com-
promise is ruled out? Fried-
man's answer is similar to one
that Shimon Peres has been
hinting at. In a speech in Lon-
don on Jan. 23, Peres said that
if King Hussein does not take
advantage of the chance for
peace "he might awaken one
day to the fact that the ter-
ritories have been given self-
administration" without him.
Peres was referring to the
concept of "functional
autonomy" an arrangement
under which Israel holds on to
the territories for the
forseeable future but permits
the Palestinians to assume all
the aspects of self-rule except
the military. Functional
autonomy was first proposed
under Camp David, but accor-
ding to Friedman, it had one
major flaw. Under Camp
David, West Bank autonomy
would only have been a five
year transitional phase after
which the territories' final
disposition would have been
determined. This caused some
Arabs and Israelis who "might
have accepted some form of
autonomy" to block it
"because they did not want to
deal with the ultimate disposi-
tion that was to come at its
conclusion." Friedman favors
"open-ended" automony,
under which West Bank Arabs
and Israelis might slowly work
out a modus vivendi. Then, at
some point, an accommodation
satisfactory to both sides could
be worked out.
Friedman would not agree
that functional autonomy is
the ultimate solution. On the
contrary, he realzies that it
would not satisfy the max-
imum desires of either
side ..." But it would be a
first step. And it would be one
in the right direction. In to-
day's Middle East even that
would be positively Utopian.

K and R Dolls:
A Jewish Heritage Reborn
FORT WORTH, TEXAS -
"A part of Jewish heritage
was reclaimed last Fall with
the re-establishment of the
new Kaemmer and Reinhardt
dolls," said Frank Shapiro,
vice president of the Teximpex
Corporation.
The star of David emblem
will, once again, be engraved
on all K R dolls. The collec-
tion is available in a limited
edition of only 5,000. They are
coming out with three styles
(one boy and two girls). Each
one will have a certificate of
authenticity, with a registra-
tion number.
The new Kaemmer and
Reinhardt Company was
founded in 1985 in Neustadt,
Germany. The new owners
purchased the rights and old
doll models from the heirs of
the original Kaemmer and
Reinhardt, thus continuing a
Jewish tradition begun in
1886.
Each doll is approximately
16 inches high. The movable
body parts and head are made
from hard PVC. They have
glass-sleeping eyes. The wigs
are real hair or mohair and the
shoes are made from real
leather. Each doll is individual-

ly hand painted which helps to
account for its unique
character.
The K R emblem (the star
of David) caused many doll
owners in Germany to destroy
them during the Nazi rule. As
a result, the original supply of
K R dolls is extremely
limited. The value of some
originals, in good condition, is
$8,000 today.

USY Holds 35th Convention
Close to 1,200 high
school students and adult ad-
visors from all parts of North
America attended the 35tn an-
nual International Convention
of United Synagogue Youth.
The convention, held in Toron-
to, Ontario, Canada, included a
series of educational sessions
based around the theme of:
"The More Torah The More
Life."
Local attendees included
Eric Kurite, president of Tem-
ple Beth El USY; Rachel
Levitt, membership vice presi-
dent of Temple Beth El USY;
and Jeremy Smith, president
of Temple Beth David USY.
In a letter of greetings to the
convention, Prime Minister
Brian Mulrooney of Canada
congratulated USY for prov-
ing ". .. itself to be a signifi-
cant force in the promotion of
cultural and religious
awareness among Jewish
Youth of North America."
Similar messages of greeting
and congratulations were
received from President
Ronald Reagan and Prime
Minister Shimon Peres.
Highlights of the Convention
included a stirring speech by
the noted author Gerda
Weissman Klein about her ex-
perience during the Holocaust.
Mrs. Klein spoke at the induc-
tion ceremonies of over one
hundred new members of the
Abraham Joshua Heschel
Honor Society. The delegates
were also addressed by Mr.
Franklin D. Kreutzer of
Miami, Florida, president of
the United Synagogue of
America, and Rabbi Benjamin
Z. Kreitman, executive vice-
president of the United
Synagogue.
The miles between
Jerusalem and Toronto were
spanned in an instant as all of
the delegates were able to hear
a live phone hook-up with their
counterparts who are par-
ticipating in Nativ, the USY
Year Program in Israel.
The most moving moments
of the Convention were during
the closing ceremonies, when
the delegates participated in
the dedication of one of the
famous Westminster Torah
Scrolls. This particular scroll is
one of over 1600 confiscated
by the Nazis during World
War II in Slovakia in Moravia.
The scrolls are now housed and
repaired by the Memorial
Scrolls Trust at Westminster
Synagogue in London,
England. The Torah scroll,
given on permanent loan to
USY, is originally from the
Pinkas Synagogue in Prague,
Czechoslovakia.
Oil Plunge
"Massive output by producing
countries in the face of slack de-
mand" and a mild winter in the
northern hemisphere contributed
to a fall in oil prices "to levels not
seen since 1979" (Associated
Press, Jan. 22).
The major U.S. domestic grade
of crude, West Texas in-
termediate, sold for $20.90 a bar-
rel, and Great Britain's North Sea
crude recovered 60 cents a barrel
to reach $20.30 (by way of com-
parison, the price of oil in 1980
went as high as $34 a barrel).
The Saudis, who had kept prices
up by producing at a 20-year low,
"are now making up for lost time
and pumping far more oil than
their agreed (OPEC) rate," AP
At the recent American ORT Federation National Con-
ference, founders of the Newest ORT school, the Braude ORT
Technical Institute, currently under construction in Karmiel,
Israel, were honored at a special reception held at Tavern on
the Green in New York's Central Park. John I. Moss of Lake
Worth received a 3,000 year-old urn recovered from the soil of
Israel. Pictured right to left are David B. Hermelin, chair-

Originally from Buffalo,
Phyllis and Edward Schain
have also lived in Boynton
Beach for six years. Both have
been ardent supporters of
Federation/UJA and Israel
Bonds efforts in both com-
munities, and they have also
reached out to those in need by
volunteering with United Way
and the Red Cross.
Of their 1976 trip to Israel,
Mrs. Schain said, "The thing
that impressed us most was
the distinction between the
green, fertile areas inhabited
by the Jews and the dusty, bar-
ren land inhabited by the
Arabs. It gave us a sense of
pride to see how hard our
brethren in Israel are working
to help themselves."
Like their fellow co-
chairpersons, the Schain8 cited
the need, on the local level, to
continue caring for our elderly
and educating our young. They
emphasised toe value of mini-
missions, which allow perma-
nent and part-time residents
to see first hand the programs
and services provided in our
community as well as the un-
fulfilled needs of our growing
Jewish population.
The Kesslers and the
Schains agree that only
through the solidarity of Jews
in Palm Beach County and
worldwide can our goals local-
ly, in Israel and around the
globe be realized.

he said, "The U.S. can and

Bialkin concluded by discuss-
ing the Anatoly Shcharansky
case. Speaking before
Shcharansky was actually
freed, Bialkin said, "By put-
ting Shcharansky's release
under the ruberic of a spy ex-
change, the Soviets cannot be
seen to have undergone a
change of heart with regard to
Jewish emigration."
"The Soviets are perhaps
becoming more sensitive to
world opinion," he added, "but
we all must continue our ef-*
forts on behalf of Soviet
Jewry."

Relief And Regrets In Washington
By JUDITH KOHN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The release of Soviet Prisoner
of Conscience Anatoly
Shcharansky was greeted here
with welcome relief, tempered
by regrets that it had to come
about as part of an exchange of
spies and by concern for the
fate of the many thousands of
refuseniks as well as imprison-
ed Jewish activists who remain
behind.
The Administration in-
dicated that Shcharansky's
release was the result of "close
cooperation over an extended
period of time" with the West
German government.
The Reagan Administration
had special praise for West
German Chancellor Helmut
Kohl whose government, ac-
cording to statements from
the White House and State
Department, had made a
"substantial contribution" to
the prisoner exchange.
Administration officials
declined to elaborate privately
on what role the West German
government had played or on
any other specifics about the
exchange arrangements, say-
ing that a similar policy has
been maintained in previous
prisoner exchanges with the
Soviets. Some of the spies
released to the Soviet Union
had been in West German
prisons. The State Depart-
ment stressed that the inclu-
sion of the celebrated Jewish
human rights activist in an ex-
change of spies was in no way
a retreat from the Administra-
tion's categorical rejection of
the espionage charge for which
Shcharansky had been
sentenced to serve 13 years in
prison and labor camps.
"We do not consider this to
be a spy case," State Depart-
ment spokesman Bernard Kalb
said Tuesday. "There have
been in the past releases of
human rights activists; they
have in fact taken place."
"As a matter of fact, we con-
sider Shcharansky's release to
be an additional and separate
benefit to a package arrange-
ment which otherwise deals
with intelligence matters on
both sides," the spokesman ad-
ded. He said that the Ad-
ministration "would have
preferred that the Soviets
simply release Shcharansky"
but that Moscow had long
refused to do that.
Leaders of Jewish organiza-
tions hailed the release of
Shcharansky but also stressed
that the fight on behalf of
Soviet Jewry is not over yet
and that thousands of Jews are
still waiting in the USSR to
receive permission to
emigrate.
A New Life For Anatoly and Avital
Continued from Page 1
and a dissident. The two roles
were intertwined, for as he
fought passionately for the
right of himself and his fellow
Russian Jews to emigrate, he
battled with equal courage for
the rights of other Russians,
non-Jews such as Nobel
Laureate physicist Andrei
Sakharov, to speak out and act
for human rights and dignity
against the oppression of the
Soviet regime, though not
against the regime itself.
He mad* that a point in his.
airport statement? when he
said: "Of course there is ab-
solutely no plot among Jewish
activists against the system of
the Soviet Union, but we do
have very strong spiritual con-
tacts, connections with this
land (Israel), and no persecu-
tion can break this connection.
"On this happiest day of our
lives, I am not going to forget
those whom I left behind in the
camps, in the prisons, who are
still struggling for their right
to emigrate, for their human
rights. And I hope that that
enthusiasm, that energy, that
joy which fills our hearts to-
day, Avital's and mine, will
help us to continue the strug-
gle for the freedom and the
rights of our brothers in
Russia."
Peres telephoned Reagan
from the airport to say,
"Thank you, in the name of the
people and government of
Israel, for your concern and
your efforts that brought this
very special man here, to his
homeland, after eight years in
Srison." Peres told the Presi-
ent that the freeing of
Shcharansky was a great vic-
tory for the human spirit and
for freedom-loving people.
When Peres passed the
phone to Anatoly,
Shcharasnky said: "Dear Mr.
President. I am under strong
stress now, sitting between
our Prime Minister and my
Avital. That's why don't be
surprised if my speech will not
be smooth. But there are some
things which I feel obliged to
tell you.
"First of all, I know how
great was your role in this
greatest event of my and my
wife's life That fact that I
could join my people in Israel,
and, of course we are both
very deeply grateful to you for
this. Secondly, as you know
very well, I was never an
American spy. But I had wide
contacts with many American
politicians, journalists,
lawyers and other public
figures as a spokesman of the
Jewish national movement and
the Helsinki (Watch) group
movement.
"And that's why I know very
well how deeply is the concern
of all your people and with the
problems of human rights all
over the world. I know what a
great role is played by your
country in these problems.
And I want to ask you to in-
form all your people about our
deepest gratitude to these peo-
ple and this country for
everything they do for the
human rights in the world and
for Jews who want to emigrate
from Russia to Israel in par-
ticular. Thank you very
much."
Avital Scharansky was given
the phone. She appeared shy,
somewhat embarrased by the
emotional outburst that
greeted her husband and
herself. She told Reagan only,
"I just wanted to say thank
you." The President replied,
"I wish you mazel tov with all
my heart." He promised he
would continue his efforts to
release other Prisoners of
Conscience.
The airport's VIP lounge
was packed with an overflow
crowd, mainly young people,
many of them wearing the
black hats of ultra-Orthodox
Jews or the knitted skullcaps
of the religious youth
movements and the ultra-
nationalist religious Gush
Emunim movement.
This crowd cheered lustily
when Avital Scharansky,
wearing a scarf over her head
as is customary among Or-
thodox women, placed a blue-
and-white skullcap on Anatoly,
who arrived in Israel bare-
headed and remained bare-
headed throughout the official
ceremonies.
Again at the Western Wall,
religious enthusiasts threw a
tallit (prayer shawl) around
Scharasnky's shoulders and
placed a white knitted skullcap
on his head. Scharansky kissed
the cold stones of the Wall
three times and recited
psalms. His wife prayed at the
Ezrat Nashim, the section
reserved for women. There
was dancing and singing and
the blowing of horns, as if at a
Purim celebration. It was only
after midnight that Anatoly
and Avital were taken to the
small flat provided for them by
the Immigration Ministry in
the Kiryat Moshe quarter of
Jerusalem.
A well-wisher called after
the couple, "Finally, the end of
the road." Avital turned and
replied, "No. It is only the
beginning."

A Profile Of Courage
By KEVIN FREEMAN
NEW YORK (JTA) The
release last week of Soviet
Jewish Prisoner of Conscience
Anatoloy Shcharansky as part
of an East-West exchange of
prisoners brings to a close one
of the most celebrated human
rights cases which drew inter-
national attention and the con-
cern of numerous government
leaders and politicians.
Nearly nine years after he
was bundled into a car by
Soviet secret police agents on
Gorky Street in Moscow to
later be tried on charges of
treason, in a move by Soviet
authorities with few
precedents since the days of
Stalin, Shcharansky's name
became synonymous with
Soviet human rights violations
and the harsh realities of life
for Jews in the Soviet Union.
Now, with his release, he is
once again reunited with his
wife Avital, who emigrated
from the Soviet Union in July,
1974, just one day after they
were married by a rabbi in
Moscow, a marriage Soviet of-
ficials later declared invalid.
Although she had not seen her
husband since that time,
Avital's tireless efforts on his
behalf are credited with keep-
ing Shcharansky's name in the
forefront of international
public opinion.
Born in the Ukrainian city of
Donetsk on January 20, 1948,
the son of a journalist and
Communist Party member,
Shcharansky graduated from
the Moscow Institute's Physics
Department of Computers and
Applied Mathematics in June
1972. An expert in computer
technology and cybernetics, he
began work for a research in-
stitute connected with the oil
and gas industry.
Shcharansky's application to
emigrate was denied in 1974
on the grounds that "it is
against state interests." He
soon became the subject of
continuous harassment,
surveillance and interrogation
as he joined the growing ranks
of Soviet Jewish refuseniks.
At times, as many as eight
KGB agents trailed him to
monitor his activities.
In early 1975, he was fired
from his job at the Moscow
Research Institute. In March
1975, after a series of arrests,
he was reportedly informed by
the KGB: "Your destiny is in
our hands ... No one in the
West is interested in you and
what you are doing here and
nobody will say a word in the
entire world if there is one
more Prisoner of Conscience
in the Soviet Union."
Shcharanskv became active
in the Helsinki Watch groups
formed to monitor Soviet com-
pliance with the Helsinki
rights accords. More impor-
tant, he served as a key link
between Jews seeking to
emigrate and Russians and
others wanting to stay and
liberalize the society.
David Shipler, The New
York Times correspondent in
Moscow when Shcharansky
was arrested, wrote in 1977
that "he was a consummate
public relations man, fluent in
English and scrupulously ac-1
curate with his facts, who
acted as a spokesman to the
Western press on behalf of
Jewish activists.
"As such, he was part of a
chain that Soviet authorities
found threatening.VcKain
of communications that runs
from the dissidents through
Western correspondents to
worldwide publications and
back into the Soviet Union
again via foreign radio stations
such as BBC and the Voice of
America."
In 1977, Shcharansky filed
suit along with fellow activist
Vladimir Slepak whose
emigration visa has still not
been approved and claimed
that Soviet Jews were defam-
ed as a result of the broadcasts
of a blatantly anti-Semitic
television documentary,
"Buyers of Souls," which was
apparently aimed at the Soviet
masses.
Shcharansky soon found
himself the subject of a vicious
attack in an article written by
Dr. Sanya Lipavsky, a former
roommate, and published in
the Soviet newspaper Izvestia.
Lipavsky accused the Soviet
activist of working for the
Central Intelligence Agency, a
charge vehemently denied by
Shcharansky, and also by then-
President Jimmy Carter.
Ten days after the Izvestia
article, Shcharansky was ar-
rested and detained in
Moscow's Lefortovo Prison
until his trial in July, 1978. He
was convicted on charges of
"treason" and "anti-Soviet
agitation and propaganda"
and sentenced to 13 years in
prison and labor camps. He
began his term at Chistopol
Prison, 500 miles east of
Moscow.
Throughout his 18-month
detention, while awaiting trial,
Shcharansky was held incom-
municado, unable to see or
speak to anyone except the
Soviet secret police. He was
also not permitted legal
counsel, despite relentless ef-
forts by his family to secure an
attorney for him.
But Shcharansky defended
himself, despite being convinc-
ed that his was "a hopeless
case from the very beginning
all the more so since I was
declared guilty by Izvestia a
full year-and-a-half before my
trial took place and even
before the case was opened
and the investigation began.
"My people," Shcharansky
continued, "have been op-
pressed all over the world for
2,000 years. Yet, in every
place in which they found
themselves, they said again
and again, 'Next year in
Jerusalem.' Now, when I am
further than ever from my
people and my Avital, when I
face long hard years of im-
prisonment, I turn to my peo-
ple and my Avital and say:
'Next year in Jerusalem. Next
year in Jerusalem.'"
Shcharansky's plight drew in-
ternational attention and soon
became an issue continually
placed on tile U.S.-Soviet
agenda. Carter spoke out on
his behalf, as did numerous
Congressmen and lay and
religious leaders. As the
Kremlin clamped down on
Jewish emigration, Shcharan-
sky's picture soon adorned
placards carried by
demonstrators urging his
freedom and an easing of the
of Jews in the Soviet
mon.
In March, 1980, Shcharan-
sky was transferred from
Chistopol to the Perm Labor
Camp in the Urals. In April,
his rrwth^M^AMgiwn, and
brother, Leonid, were permit-
ted to vist him for 24 hours
the first time since his initial
imprisonment in 1978 that he
was allowed visitors. The
following September, they
were again granted a visita-
tion permit for a brief period,
under heavy guard.
But Shcharansky's health
began to deteriorate. He wrote
a letter complaining of severe
stomach and back pains. In
early 1981, he was placed in
solitary confinement which, in
addition to poor food rations,
led to a further deterioration
in his health. All of his schedul-
ed meetings in 1981 with fami-
ly members were abruptly
cancelled, and his letter-
writing allotment was
reduced.
In November of 1981, a sur-
prise transfer once again
brought Scharansky back to
Chistopol Prison. It was here,
in September, 1982, on the eve
of Yom Kippur, that Shcharan-
sky began a hunger strike that
would last 109 days.
The strike was to protest
prison officials' confiscation of
his mail and the refusal to
allow him to receive visits
from his family, despite such
allowances under the Soviet
penal system. At the same
time, international support for
Shcharansky's release began
to gain momentum.
An appeal, one of the many,
was addressed to French
President Francois Mitterrand
by exiled Soviet physicist An-
drei Sakharov, urging the
French leader to intervene on
Shcharansky's behalf. There
were also efforts to negotiate
an exchange of Major Aleksei
Koslov, a KGB spy held cap-
tive in South Africa, for the
release of Shcharansky. That
effort was unsuccessful. Mean-
while, President Reagan also
urged his freedom.
Shcharansky's hunger
strike, however, led to an
unusual move by then-Soviet
leader Yuri Andropov. He sent
a letter, dated January 18,
1983, in which he stated that
Shcharansky "had contact
with his mother and ceased his
hunger strike" in Chistopol
and that "there is no threat to
his life." The letter was in
response to an inquiry from
French Communist Party
leader Georges Marchais.
The hunger strike left
Shcharansky in critical condi-
tion, and during a visit by his
mother and brother to
Chistopol, he complained of be-
ing unable to sleep because of
chest pains. In January, 1984,
he again went on a hunger
strike, though only for two
days, to protest the blocking of
mail sent to his wife, Avital.
In October, 1984, word was
received that Shcharansky had
been sent once again to the
Perm Labor Camp where he
was immediately hospitalized
in a "pre-heart attack condi-
tion. He was given medical
treatment. Milgrom spent two
days with her son there on
January 14 and 15, 1985. In
January, 1986, Avital said her
husband had been sentenced to
a new six-month term in a
labor camp for going on still
another hunger strike, again
protesting restricted mail
privileges. And then it happen-
ed Shcharansky was releas-
ed and ahVrwed to go to Israel.-

Fight for Freedom Continues
Continued from Page 7
Union. We must continue the
struggle to free Soviet Jewry
and we must be careful not to
view Shcharansky's release as
a change in Soviet policy, a
change which unfortunately
has not yet been
accomplished."
Alan Pesky, chairman of the
Coalition to Free Soviet Jews,
said that the "momentous
event" of Shcharansky's
release "does not mean the
end of our struggle to ease the
plight of two-and-a-half-rnillion
Soviet Jews." He said his
organization welcomed the
release, "especially in view of
the Soviet' unwillingness for
many years to even consider
the notion of his departure."
Pesky added, "The Soviet
Union must understand,
however, that the freeing of
Shcharansky, or for that mat-
ter a handful of other promi-
nent Jewish activists, while ap-
preciated among those who
cherish liberty, will only have a
lasting impact if it is followed
by a large-scale emigration of
Soviet Jews."
American Jewish Congress
president Theodore Mann said
Shcharansky's release is "an
encouraging and significant
event," but the degree to
which it "reflects a real
change in Soviet policy" re-
mains uncertain. To the extent
that the Shcharansky action
does signal a new openness on
the part of the Soviet Union,
Mann said, "it holds the pro-
mise of a new phase in
American-Soviet relations."
Rabbi Louis Bernstein,
president of the Rabbinical
Council of America, said that
Shcharansky's release was a
tribute to the greatness of the
American people and its Presi-
dent. "It is a victory of the in-
domitable spirit of a human be-
ing created in the image of G-d
over the forces of evil and

darkness," he stated. Berns-
tein expressed the hope that
the release will signal hope for
the release of other Prisoners
of Conscience who wish to
leave the Soviet Union and
that the USSR will open up its
doors to all Jews who wish to
emigrate.
Ruth Popkin, president of
Hadassah, welcomed the
release of Shcharansky,
stating that he "has been a
symbol of courage and deter-
mination for the cause of
Soviet Jewry and to all who
cherish freedom. We hope that
his release will herald the
opening of the doors of
emigration to the many
Prisoners of Conscience and
the thousands of other Soviet
Jews whose only crime is the
wish to rejoin their families
and live as free Jews in the
Jewish State, Israel."
Other Jewish leaders who
welcomed Shcharansky's
release and stressed that the
struggle must continue on
behalf of other Soviet Jews
who wish to emigrate were:
Rabbi William Berkowitz,
president, American Jewish
Heritage Foundation; Herbert
Magidson, president, Jewish
Labor Committee; Ernest
Zelig, president, B'nai Zion;
Dr. Barnett Zumoff, presi-
dent, Workmen's Circle; and
Hart Hasten, president, Herat
Zionists of America.
Some 300 members of the
Student Struggle for Soviet
Jewry sang and danced in a
"victory celebration" at Stern
College in Manhattan around a
wooden prison cage which
Avital Shcharansky often
stood in during SSSJ
demonstrations for her
husband.
Rabbi Allan Meyerowitz of
Spring Valley, N.Y., who met
Anatoly Shcharansky in 1974,
recalled that Shcharansky had
encouraged him to sing the
Israel anthem, Hatikvah, with
him in Red Square. Israel Frid-
man of Manhattan, who had
been at the courthouse in
Moscow during Shcharansky's
trial, emphasized that "many
Soviet Jews are still left in hell
as Shcharansky reaches his
seventh heaven."

because of the nature of their
crimes, a federal probation of-
ficer here said.
Jurors in the trial said they
found the only female defen-
dant, 52-year-old Jean Craig of
Laramie, Wyoming, guilty of
surveilhng Berg before he was
killed, but they did not say
whether they believed that
Order members were involved
in the murder.
The case was tried under the
Racketeer and Influenced Cor-
rupt Organizations (RICO)
Act, which requires a jury to
find the accused guilty of a
minimum of two crimes com-
mitted to further the illegal
group. The jury in The Order
ease was not required to say
which two crimes constituted
the minimum for each
defendant.
David Lane, believed to have
driven the getaway ear in the
Berg murder, read a long
statement during the sentenc-
ing hearing, reiterating the
group's aim of saving the
Aryan race from impurity.
"I've given all that I am and all
that 1 have to awaken my peo-
ple from their death,'' said
Lane, 46, of Denver, who was
sentenced to 40 years.
AD the defendants were con-
victed of racketeering and con-
spiracy to commit racketeer-
ing in the trial that ended Dec.
30. Some defendants were also
convicted of additional federal
crimes, including armored ear
robberies and illegal weapons
possession.

Warning Shot
Continued
hostile trend is escalating in-
side and outside the occupied
territories." Burawi called for
a pan-Arab stand "that will
contain Zionist-U.S. efforts
seeking to remove Israel from
its isolation ..."
Iraq's AUTkamak seemed
to suggest blackmail. Spain, it
warned, "has not taken into
account its economic trade
relations with the Arab coun-
tries. Its decision to establish
relations with the Zionist enti-
ty will weaken its relations
with the Arab countries." The
United Arab Emirates (UAE)
expressed sorrow," accor-
ding to a foreign ministry
statement; local newspapers
termed the Spanish decision
hostile to the Arab people
and a stab in the back of the
historical relations between
the Arabs and Spaniards." A
commentary on Saudi Arabian
Radio noted past Arab efforts
to persuade Spain not to
from Page 4
establish diplomatic relations
with the enemv."
*
All this despite Spain's
statement that it did not
recognize Israel's annexation
of the territories administered
since 1967, that it wanted
Israel to dismantle West Bank
and Gaza Strip settlements
and supported inclusion of the
PLO in Arab-Israeli negotia-
tions. What is really troubling
the Arabs if they indeed
have come to grips with Israel
as a neighbor? One paper in
the UAE worried that the
Spanish decision "will back the
legitimacy' of the
'illegitimate' Zionist presence
on the Arab land of
Palestine .. If that is the at-
titude behind all the outcries,
the Arab rejectionists and
"moderates" are clearly not so
far apart after all.

Marilyn Klinghoffer Dead At 58
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Marilyn Klinghoffer, the
widow of Leon Klinghoffer
who was murdered by Palesti-
nian terrorists during the sea-
jacking of the Italian cruise
ship Achille Lauro last Oc-
tober, died last week at Lenox
Hill Hospital, reportedly of
cancer. She was 58 years old
and lived in Manhattan.
Klinghoffer and her husband
were among the several hun-
dred passengers aboard the
cruise ship when it was hijack-
ed off the Egyptian coast by
Palestinian terrorists who
demanded freedom of Palesti-
nians held in prisons in Israel.
Leon Klinghoffer became
the sole fatality of the two-day
ordeal when he was shot and
killed by the terrorists who
then dumped his body into the
Mediterranean. His body later
washed ashore on the Syrian
coast and was subsequently
returned to the U.S. for burial.

Klinghoffer's strength in the
face of the incident gained her
national attention. She recent-
ly sought to sell the rights of
her and Leon's story of the
Achille Lauro hijacking to a
production company for a
television docu-drama.
Marilyn Klinghoffer worked
since 1972 for Gralla Publica-
tions in New York, beginning
in the circulation department
and eventually moving up to
become assistant personnel
director. She was also involved
in Jewish organizations, in-
cluding B'nai B'rith.
Shortly after the Achille
Lauro affair, the President
and the First Lady met with
the entire Klinghoffer family
in New York. She also ap-
peared before the House
Foreign Affairs Subcommittee
on International Operations,
where she declared,
"I believe that my husband's
death has made a difference in
the way that people now
perceive their vulnerability. I
believe that what happened to
the passengers on the Achille
Lauro and to my family can
happen to anyone, at any time,
at any place.'
A spokesperson for the Kl-
inghoffer family told the JTA
that Marilyn Klinghoffer had
been diagnosed as having
cancer in the fall of 1984. She
was in Lenox Hill hospital for
two weeks before her death.
The spokesperson said the
Leon Klinghoffer Memorial
Foundation, established after
the Achille Lauro incident, wijl
change its name to the Leon
and Marilyn Klinghoffer
Memorial Foundation, and
that the family intends to con
tinue on with the foundation's
work of fighting terrorism.
Pre-arrange now...
because the grief
is enough to handle.
