Community Dinner Dance
An Evening Beside the Golden Door
Celebrants at this year's Federation-sponsored Community Din-
ner Dance were taken back in time to turn-of-the-century New
York on Saturday evening, February 22, as they spent an evening
of dining and dancing "Beside the Golden Door" at the Hyatt
Palm Beaches.
The ambiance of the Lower East Side was recreated, complete
with pushcarts and garment workers, while Miss Liberty visited
with guests.
Chairpersons Carole and Joel Koeppel saluted the immigrants
who sought freedom in America and who formed the foundation
for today's vibrant, cohesive American Jewish community.

Documents Indicate Waldheim's
Involvement with Nazi Party
Former UN Chief Denies Allegations
Documents recently released
from the Austrian Justice and
Foreign Ministries have raised
a controversy here over
whether Kurt Waldheim,
former Secretary General of
the United Nations and now a
conservative candidate for the
Presidency of Austria, had an
active Nazi past.
Waldheim's military and
civilian files, published in fac-
simile in the current edition of
the news magazine Profil,
show that Waldheim, in his
youth, was a member of the
Nazi SA and the National
Socialist Student Organiza-
tion. Waldheim has denied
membership in either. He has a
defender in the person of
veteran Nazi-hunter, Simon
The files, which according to
Profil were opened only two
weeks ago, provide details of
Waldheim's military career as
a first lieutenant in the
cavalry. The record shows that
he joined the Student
Organization on April 1, 1938,
only a few weeks after the
Anschluss and was registered
as a member of the SA (Stur-
mabteilung or Storm
Troopers) mounted division in
November of that year.
Waldheim said the only ex-
planation he could offer was
that as an ardent horseman, he
had on occasion gone on riding
outings with Nazis. That, he
told Profil, might account for
his mistaken listing as a
member of the SA mounted
division. The records of
Waldheim's de-Nazification
process in 1946 confirmed that
his association with the SA
was solely in pursuit of his pas-
sion for horseback riding.
The former diplomat's
memoirs mention no connec-
tion with any Nazi organiza-
tion. He described himself as
the son of a conservative
Catholic family which the
Nazis considered politically
unreliable. Nazi files of 1940
confirm that he was involved
in the fist fights with Nazis
just before the Anschulss and
that his father, a Vienna
district school inspector, was
replaced immediately after the
Nazi takeover of Austria.
The Waldheim file was
released, after 40 years, on
orders of Chancellor Fred
Sinowatz last January. He also
ordered release of the file of
Waldheim's leading opponent
for the Presidency, Socialist
Kurt Steyrer. The files revived
old rumors that, as a cavalry
officer, Waldheim had par-
ticipated in mop-up operations
in the Balkans during World
War II, apparently against
anti-Nazi partisans.
Eli Rosenbaum, general
counsel for the World Jewish
Congress, claims that in April
and May of 1943 Waldheim
was in Salonika, Greece on the
staff of General Alexander
Loehr, who was hanged in
1947 for war crimes including
the deportation of more than
42,000 Greek Jews to
Auschwitz. World Jewish Con-
gress president Edgar Bronf-
man charged Waldheim with
being "engaged in one of the
most elaborate deceptions of
our time."
However, other military ar-
chives show Waldheim as serv-
ing in Loehr's unit in 1942,
before the deportations, and
on a recent Today interview
Waldheim said his own family
was persecuted by Nazis and
that his own service in the Ger-
man army was restricted to
combat roles and that after be-
ing wounded in 1941 he work-

Herzog Congratulates Aquino
JERUSALEM (JTA) President Chaim Herzog sent
a message of congratulations to Filipino leader Corazon
Aquino after she was sworn in as the new President last
month. Israel was one of the first countries to recognize the
new government. The Philippine Embassy in Israel an-
nounced Tuesday, Feb. 25 that it supported Aquino. Her-
zog, in his message, praised Aquino and the Filipino people
for their devotion to democracy.

"For 40 years nobody found
it necessary to make such ac-

Simon Wiesenthal, who
heads the Vienna-based Nazi
war crimes documentation
center, said the files do not
justify the charges. "Under
such circumstances the Soviets
would never have allowed
Waldheim to become
Secretary General" of the UN,
Wiesenthal contended.
Waldheim served two five-
year terms as Secretary
General, from 1972-81. At the
end of 1981 he stood for re-
election to a third term but
was defeated by Javier Perez
de Cuellar of Peru.
With respect to his military
record, Wiesenthal said: "I

Abraham Lincoln died intestate
(without a will).
Can you imagine? A man of such importance who
took time out to write the Gettysburg Address on a
scrap of paper didn't take the time to sit down
and plan his estate.
How do we know that
everything he wanted to do
with his estate was really
carried out?
You may not
be the Presi-
dent of the
United States
but you
might be the
President of
your com-
pany. If you
have made a
will congratulations if not, isn't it time for
you to do so?
And if you have a will, when was the last time you
looked it over and perhaps with changing laws and
family-conditions you might want to revise it?
By all means see your attorney for the best profes-
sional advice and please remember your Jewish
Community and all it stands for when you either
make a will or revise a present one.

Soviet Jews Not On Agenda At Soviet Communist Party Congress
Soviet Jewry Task Force
A pageant of the Soviet
political process took place
recently in Moscow with the
27th Congress of the Com-
munist Party of the USSR.
Every newspaper and televi-
sion station in Russia was pro-
jecting images of a spruced-up
Moscow. Even in the West and
in America, the Soviet PR
campaign was on.
Yet, as the delegates
gathered each day in the
Kremlin's Palace of Con-
gresses, symbolically waiting
outside in the cold were the
thousands of Soviet Jews who
ask nothing but the right to ex-
press in the USSR their
Jewish heritage, culture or
faith, or to rejoin their families
in Israel. Their plight was the
missing item at the Com-
munist Party Congress.
Experts in the West say that
Party Chairman Mikhail Gor-
bachev has managed some
breathtaking changes in his
country's internal politics. In a
shorter time than it took any
predecessor, Gorbachev has
apparently achieved mastery
of the cumbersome party
bureaucracy, easing out many
rivals and replacing hundreds
of middle officials. At the same
time, he has sharply broken
with the dull, secretive image
of past Soviet leaders by
casting himself as bold, eager
to listen, and ready to imple-
ment new ideas in short, a
public relations, or image,
For many* thousands of
Soviet Jews, however, Gor-
bachev's "new" policies have
failed to bring any relief. As
many as 20,000 or more
refuseniks are denied the right
to leave. While Gorbachev has
publicly stated that even those
Jews who allegedly had access
to state secrets need only wait
"five or ten years," in reality,
many have already waited that
term and are still denied the
right to leave. There are 19
former Prisoners of Zion still
being kept in the Soviet Union
despite already completing
their prison terms. While Gor-
bachev said that anti-Semitism
in the USSR is forbidden,
hatred of Jews, as manifested
in vitriolic public attacks on
refuseniks as individuals and
on world Jewry as a group,
finds a prominent place in the
Soviet press, even on nightly
television. And activist
Hebrew teachers continuously
find themselves victims of
harassment and arrests.
Of course, there have been
some gestures by the Soviets.
Yes, they've allowed eight
members of divided couples,
some of them Jewish, to join
their spouses in the United
States. Yes, Anatoly
Shcharansky has finally been
given his freedom (although to
the end, he remained branded
a spy). Yes, some other long-
time Refuseniks Ilya
Essas, Yakov Gorodetsky, and
a handful of others, have
recently been allowed to leave.
But... emigration is only
up marginally from the years
before Gorbachev's accession
(from 896 in 1984 to 1,140 in
1985; only 79 people left in
January, 1986). And, as
Secretary of State George
Shultz said to Morris Abram,
chairman of the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry, in
regard to American pressure
on behalf of Anatoly Shcharan-
sky: "For every famous ac-
tivist allowed to go free, the
Soviets have the power to
manufacture trumped-up
charges against countless
In the same month that
Soviet prison officials were im-
proving their treatment of
Shcharansky ("fattening him
for export," to use Anatoly's
words), Vladimir Lifshits of
Leningrad, a mathematician,
was arrested on Jan. 8 and
charged with distributing
"false accusations" which
"defame" the Soviet state. His
real crime? Asking to leave for
Israel. His wife, Anna, reports
that Vladimir was beaten in
prison last month and
hospitalized for ten days. At-
tempting to go to Moscow to
plead his case, she was taken
off the train and told to stay
away from the capital until
after the Communist Party
The wife and friends of
Leonid Volvovsky had similar
experiences when they tried
recently to travel to Moscow.
The Hebrew teacher and com-
puter scientist from Gorky was
sentenced to three years im-
prisonment in October on the
charge of "defaming the
Soviet state and social
system." Volvovsky is now in a
labor camp in eastern Siberia,
and his wife and friends were
told to remain at home until
March 5.
And others ... Josef Begun,
serving since 1983 his third
term in prison ... Zakhar Zun-
shein, in prison since 1984. His
wife was recently expelled
from Moscow ... Ida Nudel,
out of prison, but at age 53 liv-
ing in near-isolation in the pro-
vincial townn of Bendery, for-
bidden to see her friends in her
native Moscow, or to join her
sister, her only living relative,
in Israel. Depression is said to
be setting in.
What were the refuseniks
who are not in orison doing
during this Communist party
Congress? A number were tak-
ing part in a hunger strike;
many have addressed appeals
to the Congress, to Gorbachev
himself, to members of
Western Communist parties in
attendance, and to the West in
general. If Anatoly Shcharan-
sky's incredible spirit to be
free is an example, we know
that the pontifications of the
Soviet Communist Party Con-
gress will not wear them
Soviet Jews may have been
the missing "official" agenda
item at the Soviet Party Con-
gress in Moscow, but they re-
main a critical element in the
total accounting of the
American agenda with the
USSR. Nothing should or will
prevent the intensity of con-
cern of the American people
from being made crystal clear.
Our message must be:
America cares about Soviet
Jews, and Mr. Gorbachev
should know it's on the United
States agenda!

At UJA Young Leadership Conference
Senators Warn Reagan
Against Saudi Arms Sales
Two leading Senators, both of
them expected to seek their
party's nomination for the
Presidency in 1988, warned
President Reagan last week
against an expected proposal
to sell missiles to Saudi
The warning by Senate Ma-
jority Leader Robert Dole (R.
Kan.) and Sen. Gary Hart (D.
Colo.) was made before the
nearly 3,000 persons attending
the United Jewish Appeal's
Fifth National Young Leader-
ship Conference at a dinner at
the Washington Sheraton. The
Administration is expected to
submit to Congress a proposal
to sell the Saudis $300 million
in missiles, including the
Sidewinder air-to-air missiles,
the shoulder-held Stinger anti-
aircraft missile, and the Har-
poon anti-ship missile.
At the outset of the dinner,
Peter Alter, conference chair-
man, noted that neither Presi-
dent Reagan nor Vice Presi-
dent George Bush had ac-
cepted an invitation to appear
at the conference. But he said
they would receive a
"message" from the con-
ference that the sale of arms to
the Saudis "is not in the best
interests of peace."
Dole revealed that he had
recently advised the White
House to move slowly on the
sale. "Until there is some in-

Assassination of Nablus Mayor
Could Set Back Israeli Policy
The assassination last week of
Zafer Al-Masri, the Israel-
appointed Mayor of Nablus,
was a serious setback for the
Israeli policy of restoring
municipal governance in the
administered territories to
Arab hands.
This was the assessment of
analysts and Israeli officials as
some 20,000 Palestinians from
Israel, the territories and Jor-
dan attended Al-Masri's
Although the Nablus Town
Council immediately elected
Al-Masri's deputy, Hafez
Tukan, to replace him, hopes
to install Arab mayors in other
major West Bank towns rapid-
ly faded.
Two candidates for mayor,
in Ramallah and El Bireh,
published announcements, to
appear in the Arabic
newspapers, that they would
not run for office. The
dropouts are Nadim Zaro, a
former Mayor of Ramallah,
and Walid Hammad, the can-
didate in El Bireh. Zaro said he
would not seek the appointive
office because free elections
are the only way to elect
The Israeli authorities reject
free elections for fear that can-
didates supportive of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion would win, as they did in
the last free elections in 1976.
Hammad announced he
would not run for the sake of
"national unity." But Shmuel
Goren, Coordinator of Govern-
ment Affairs in the ad-
ministered territories, said on
television that the policy of ap-
pointing mayors would con-
tinue, after ascertaining that
the appointees would enjoy
broad public support.
Zaro and Hammad are both
considered pro-Jordan. The
one candidate who did not
back out, Jamil Tarifeh, is
known to be a supporter of El
Fatah, the PLO wing led by

Although the KGB never allowed me the pleasure of
receiving your mail, somehow I could sense the constancy

reached my homeland Israel. You, the people of the free
world, lielped me to reach my goal.

of Conscience, Ida Nudel, Vkdimir Slepak and all the
former Prisoners of Conscience, every Jew in the Soviet
Union who wishes to leave must be given that right.

"This is the third live broad-

Local Rabbis Join Delegation
to Promote Tourism to Israel
More than 200 rabbis
representing 52 Jewish com-
munities in the United States
and Canada met in Israel dur-
ing the last week in February
at a special rabbinic con-
ference to promote more
tourism to Israel and thus help
further strengthen the na-
tion's economy, it was an-
nounced by David Hermelin,
national campaign chairman of
Israel Bonds and a co-
chairman for tourism of the
"Operation Independence"
Task Force.
The conference was held
under the auspices of the
Israel Bond National Rabbinic
Cabinet with the cooperation
of "Operation Independence,"
the Israel Ministry of Tourism,
El Al Airlines and the
Synagogue Council of
America. "Operation In-
dependence" is a joint pro-
gram by the government of
Israel and prominent business

Rabbis Steven Westman and Howard Shapiro planted trees in
the American Forest overlooking Bet She mesh as part of the
special rabbinic conference held recently to promote tourism
to Israel.
Jewish citizens: "Go to
Israel"! they declared in
Because international ter-
rorism has recently affected
innocent tourists, one focus of
the three-day conference was
the absolute safety of the
tourist experience in Israel.
Rabbi Westman argued that
El Al is probably the most
security-conscious airline in
the world today. "El Al's nor-
thern route avoids all the
troublesome areas, and
children as well as adults are
perfectly safe inside Israel's
borders," the rabbi said.
Rabbis Westman and
Shapiro recalled one Israeli of-
ficial saying, "We'll take care
of terrorism; you take care of
tourism," and during a brief-
ing with the rabbis Prime
Minister Shimon Peres said,
"Kadaffi is not a person to be
taken seriously; his ravings
are more vanity than strategy.
If he even thinks of doing us
harm, he will pay the ultimate
"We were shocked to
discover that only 20 percent
of American Jews have been to
Israel," said Rabbi Shapiro.
"Although 1985 was a record
year for tourism in Israel, ac-
counting for $1.4 billion in
revenue, American tourism
Israel's President Chaim
Herzog, who also spoke to the
rabbinical contingent, said,
"American Jews must unders-

of the most positive mitzvot of
Jewish life," and Rabbis

(The following article is bas-
ed on information and inter-
views provided by Elizabeth
Homans, Palm Beach County's
Project Renewal representative
in Hod HaSharon.)
Knowing that the future
strength of any community lies
in its youth, the Project
Renewal professionals and
citizens of Hod HaSharon are
working together to ensure
that today's children are train-
ed and encouraged to become
tomorrow's leaders.
Professionals and parents
alike have characterized the
Early Childhood Development
and Enrichment programs
begun by Project Renewal in
Giora and Gil Amal as the most
important among the many in-
itiated, because they not only
correct problems that exist,
but they also prevent problems
that could arise in the future.
Of great importance is the
integrated family approach
taken in all aspects of the Ear-
ly Childhood Development pro-
grams. Since early childhood is
a time when parental factors
help form a youngster's per-
sonality and potential for
growth, parents are intimately
involved in all the programs.
Said neuro-developmental
therapist, Daniel la
Hamenachem, "All of us work
with the mothers and fathers
as well as with the children,
teaching them the art of bon-
ding with their children, how
to hold them, talk to them,
sing to them, laugh with them,
in short, to love them. Wat-
ching a mother who for the
first time believes her child
recognizes her is worth more
than every moment the child
spends with me alone."
In Gil Amal, the largest of
the two Project Renewal
neighborhoods, the Early
Childhood Development
Center is presently housed in
the Sedley Sports Center, but
will soon move to the Marge
and Jack Saltzman Early
Childhood Development
Center, which is part of a
multi-purpose complex plann-
ed through the cooperation of
American Jewry, local citizens
and Proiecjt Renewal
In Giora, the Early
Childhood Enrichment pro-
gram is housed in a small
residential edifice, but the
Michael Burrows Center is
under construction.
Early detection of strengths
and weakness is often the key
to a young child's future
academic and social success.
"Early assessment gives the
child every opportunity to im-
prove and be ready for the
first grade," said child
psychologist Ofra Ben David,
who works closely with Gil
Amal's day care and nursery
school children.
"Prevention of problems is
most important; the earlier the
assessment, the better,"
agreed psychologist Oraziella
Frolik. These two trained pro-
fessionals are involved not on-
ly with the supervision of the
day care and nursery pro-
grams in Gil Amal, but also
with staff training, monthly
educational meetings and an
afterschool program for
mothers and children.
As in Gil Amal, the profes-
sional staff in Giora em-
phasizes the family approach
in early assessment and
prevention. "Assessment of
newborns and interaction
with mothers is vital," said
psychologist Bila Klein.
"Often the mother derives as
much or more from the
therapy of the child I
become an outlet to whom she
can express her feelings."
Klein works closely with the
staff of the new Levy Day
Care Center as an educator
and counselor.
"My involvement with the
staff is to help them better
understand how to deal with
the children," she said.
"Every two weeks we meet
and review the children's pro-
gress and discuss any pro-
blems. Consistency and work-
ing together help provide a
good atmosphere for the

youngsters and a sense of con-
fidene for the staff."
In Giora there is also the
"Milo Programs" in which
special education teacher
Merry Ben Yoav travels from
place to place to provide
special units in art and
literature and audio-visual pro-
grams for the children.
The Levy Day Care Center,
which opened in September
1985 with 43 children enrolled,
now serves 70 children.
Children receive hot meals and
individual care in an open,
clean and refreshing
"We are settling into our
new setting and developing
our technique," said Center
director Ronit Maron.
"Parents were very pleased
with the new facility and the
care the children receive, so
much so that people outside
Giora want their children to at-
tend our center. Working
closely with parents, the
psychologist, occupational
therapists and special educa-
tion teacher, we are able to
have these children start their
young lives in the right
Ruth Oren, an occupational
therapist working with
children in Gil Amal, also
stressed parental involvement
in the therapeutic process.
"Going for treatment does
more than just help the child,"
she said. "It helps teach
Earents the responsibility of
eeping appointments and en-
courages them to reinforce the
treatment at home. Parents
become very interested in lear-
ning about their child's specific
Such interaction
characterizes the entire early
childhood program in even
more emphatic ways. Through
Early Childhood Committees,
residents from each
neighborhood work with pro-
fessionals to set goals and
make decisions.
Project Renewal's help in
paving the way for Israel's
productive future is clearly
evident in the transformations
that have occurred in scores of
chldren from Giora and Gil
Amal. One such case is that of
Oozie, a 5 year old who only a
year ago came into the Early
Childhood Center as a
withdrawn, fearful child who
always responded in
monosyllabic monotones. His
father was in the hospital suf-
fering from bone cancer, and
his mother was either working
or at the hospital visiting.
"We began Oozie in in-
dividual therapy, then moved
him into group therapy,"
recalled Ruth Oren. "Most im-
portantly, however, the after-
noon mother/child program
has helped change him into a
sociable, outgoing, confident
"In order to make stories
like Oozie's more common, the
commitment to Project
Renewal from the Jewish com-
munity of Palm Beach County
must continue," said Marva
Perrin, Project Renewal
chairperson for the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
The Early Childhood Pro-
grams in Giora and Gil Amal
work so well because of the
cooperation of the people in-
volved professionals,
residents and American Jews,
all of whom know that the
history and destiny of the
State of Israel is being shaped
today in the day care centers
and nursery schools benefiting

Local Rabbis Promote Tourism
Continued from Page 5
spiritual pilgrimages to Israel.
In fact, Rabbi Westman is
planning a congregational
journey to Israel during May,
and Rabbi Shapiro, who has of-
ficiated several bar mitzvah
services for local youngsters
on Masada, will probably lead
a tour in the fall.
"We need to make Israel live
for our children," said Rabbi
Shapiro, "and there's no bet-
ter way to do so than by taking
them there."
"We encourage people to
visit throughout the year," ad-
ded Rabbi Westman. "The im-
portance of tourism to the
Israeli economy was forcefully
Presented to us. Finance
linister Yitzhak Modai said
that Israel needs tourism now
more than ever. If there is a
falling off, economic recovery
will take a longer time."
The rabbis' tour was short
but filled with unique ex-
periences. They visited the
most recent archaeological
digs in Jerusalem and examin-
ed the re-excavated site of
Zedekiah's Cave. The rabbis
were also privileged to be the
first group to pray in a newly-
excavated room underneath
the ramp which priests once
used to get to the altar in the
Temple. "We were only feet
from the Holy of Holies, the in-
nermost shrine of the ancient
Jewish Temple," recalled Rab-
bi Shapiro."
Both rabbis were impressed
with the tourist facilities being
built to accommodate
travelers, and they were
pleasantly surprised to find
that the miraculous drop in
Israel's inflation rate has
resulted in a cost-of-living
which is almost identical to
Bar Mitzvah
that in South Florida.
Rabbi. Shapiro described a
new promenade being built
near Jerusalem's Diplomat
Hotel which will provide
visitors not only with shops,
restaurants and hotels, but
also with the best view of the
Old City. Rabbi Westman
noted that throughout Israel
there is a new infrastructure
being established for camping
and recreation as a result of
tourist attractions lost when
Israel relinquished the Sinai.
Although many potential
tourists equate a visit to Israel
with a tour of Jerusalem, both
rabbis encouraged exploration
of the rest of the country.
"Israel abounds in natural
beauty, from the lush green-
ness of the north to the
tropical splendor of the
south," said Rabbi Shapiro. "I
have taken tours in the sum-
mer, but to be in Israel in
March, when the almond trees
and spring flowers are
blossoming was spectacular.
At any time of year, a trip to
Israel is an experience unlike
any other traveling
Rabbi Westman said a visit
to Israel is "not all heaviness.
It is filled with happiness,
laughter and recreation. In
Israel, unlike anywhere else in
the world, you can be a normal
person and enjoy yourself. As
Tel Aviv Mayor Shlomo Lahat
put it, 'Jerusalem is holy; Tel
Aviv and the rest of Israel is
human.' "
It is clear that Israel as a
tourist attraction has
something for everyone,
Jewish or non-Jewish,
religious or not. And by
visiting Israel an American
Jew can not only enjoy himself
and revive his spiritual contact
with history and tradition, but
also make a positive impact on
Israel's economic recovery.
Senator Javits Passes
Former Senator Jacob
Javits (R-N.Y.) died on Friday,
March 7 at Good Samaritan
Hospital in West Palm Beach.
The 81-year-old statesman was
in the Palm Beaches visiting
his friend Herbert Goldman.
Funeral Services were held
Monday, March 10 in New
Javits, who served in the
Senate for 24 years, was a
maverick liberal Republican
who earned bipartisan support
and respect among his col-
leagues. He was very concern-
ed with issues such as the en-
vironment, Social Security and
nuclear disarmament. Sol
Silverman, a member of the
Palm Beach County
Democratic Executive Com-
mittee, said of Javits, "He
took the position early on that
nuclear war was unthinkable."
Rep. Guy Vander Jagt (R-
Mich.), speaking at a fund-
raiser for Florida Rep Tom
Lewis last week, spoke ad-
mirably of Javits' grasp of the
issues. "He always knew more
than anyone in the room,"
Vander Jagt said.
Sen. Jacob Javits
Bob Pinchuk, an aide to Con-
gressman Lewis, added, "Sen.
Javits proved that ethnic
background, politic and
religion are not the primary
things people vote for.. .1
have no doubt that when the
label 'greatness' is applied to a
senator, Jacob Javits will not
be excluded."
Joshua Weingard
Joshua Weingard, son of
Joseph Weingard and Ellen
Flaum, will be called to the
Torah as a Bar Mitzvah on
Saturday, March 15, at Tem-
ple Beth El in West Palm
Beach. Joshua will be twinning
his Bar Mitzvah with Alex-
ander Klesman of the Soviet
Union, who has been denied
his Jewish heritage.
Joshua is an eighth grade
student at the Jewish Com-
munity Day School where he is
vice-president of the Knesset.
He is a member of Temple
Beth El Kadima and the JCC
Tweens, and his main interests
are tennis, basketball and
Along with special friends,
those sharing this day with
Joshua will be his step-mother
Nancy, grandparents Grace
and Morris Weingard and
Sylvia and Hy Flaum, his
sister Jessica and brother
Aron, and many friends and
relatives of the Weingard and
Flaum families.

Day Schol Bar Mitzvah
To Feature Special
Shabbat Services
To celebrate 13 years of pro-
viding excellence in Jewish
and general education to the
Palm Beach County Jewish
Community, the Jewish Com-
munity Day School family will
commemorate its Bar Mitzvah
year with special Shabbat ser-
vices at the Day School Merkaz
on Friday evening, March 28
at 8 p.m. and on Saturday mor-
ning, March 29 at 9:30 a.m.
The entire community is in-
vited to both services, which
will honor the school's past
and present founders, sup-
porters and presidents, many
of whom will be privileged to
participate in the ceremonies.
The Day School faculty has
been busy working with
students helping prepare them
for their role in the services.
On Friday evening, the fourth,
sixth and seventh grades will
participate, and the rest of the
students will be involved in the
Saturday morning service. In
addition, Day School alumni
will be on hand to assist in the
Saturday Shabbat services.
An Oneg Shabbat will take
place Friday evening and a
Kiddush will be held after ser-
vices on Saturday.
"We have encouraged the in-
volvement of everyone in the
community who has worked to
develop our Day School into
the fine institution it is today,"
said Day School president Dr.
Arthur Virshup. "With the ex-
pected growth of our Jewish
community, we celebrate this
occasion in anticipation of an
exciting future.
In addition to the Shabbat
services, the Day School will
hold a dinner-dance at the
Hyatt Palm Beaches on Satur-

ing to be helpful we have to go
rather slow, he said.
"I know the missiles will
fly," Dole added. "But I don't
know whether this new
package will fly."
Hart noted he and other
Senators lost the fight in 1981
against the sale of AW ACS to
Saudi Arabia. "Today the
Saudis are still closer to the
PLO than they are to making
peace with Israel," he said.
Hart, who announced he
plans to visit Israel at the end
of the month, said he will not
support a sale of missiles to the
Saudis. He said his message to
the President is, "forget it. It
is not going to happen. It is not
the way to peace. It is not the
way to treat a friend" (Israel).
Dole said he believes "cooler
heads" will prevail. "The best
policy, when it comes to the
Mideast and other parts of the
world, is a bipartisan policy,
not a Republican policy or a
Democratic policy, he said.
The majority leader pointed
to the recent experience with
the proposed arms sale to Jor-
dan in which Republicans and
Democrats worked together to
delay the sale. It was later
withdrawn by Reagan.
"It was our duty as
Americans first to try to con-
tinue the negotiating pro-
cess," Dole said. "We gave it a
chance and we haven't given
up yet."
At the same time, Dole
praised King Hussein of Jor-
dan. "It's not his fault that the
peace process, at least tem-
porarily, is derailed again by
the PLO, which has only one
thing in mind, the destruction
of Israel."
Dole stressed that support
for Israel is "bipartisan, non-
partisan." He said there is a
consensus that "Israel must be
militarily secure and
economically healthy."
Hart praised Dole for his
successful effort as majority
leader in bringing about

affect us?" Levin asked. He
said Jews gained allies for
their causes by their participa-
tion in the struggle for social
justice such as the civil rights
Specifically, Levin noted
that $2.5 billion was being cut
in U.S. funds for education and
said that new immigrants will
be denied the opportunities
Jewish immigrants received.
He also charged that the civil
rights laws which Jews helped
bring about are being ignored
by the Reagan Administration.
Elie Wiesel, chairman of the
United States Holocaust
Memorial Council, urged that
now that Anatoly Shcharansky
has been allowed to go to
Israel, American Jews should
not forget the others still in
the Soviet Union.
He recommended a march
on Washington of 250,000 to
500,000 people the week
before Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev arrives for a
meeting with Reagan. A
specific date has not yet been
set for the proposed meeting.
Israeli Ambassador Meir
Rosenne also stressed that
Jews should not be satisfied
with "token" emigration but
should continue to press for
the release of all Soviet Jews.
Wiesel, who received the
Young Leadership's first
Jacob Javits Humanitarian
Award, stressed the impor-
tance of young Jews in Jewish
history, noting that it was the
young Jews who led the op-
position to the Nazis in the
ghettos and the concentration
camps, who fought in the
underground against the
British in prestate Palestine
and who began the Soviet
Jewry movement both in the
Soviet Union and the United
"It is on your shoulders that
Jewish destiny weighs heavi-
ly," Wiesel told the young
leaders. He said they should
take in all of Jewish history,
both the joys and tragedies.
Day School
The spirit of the Challenger
astronauts was remembered
recently when the children of
the Jewish Community Day
School of Palm Beach County
held a brief ceremony which
culminated in the release of
hundreds of red, white and
blue balloons and one silver
balloon for each of the
astronauts. An additional
silver balloon was released to
represent a spirit of hope and a
reaffirmation that the quest to
expand our scientific horizons
continue in spite of this

Schindler Delivers Sermon at Joint Service
UAHC President Combines Polemics with A Call for Jewish Unity

first time. In addition Rabbi

Schindler admitted that
Jewish life is characterized by
pluralism, by a "non-
uniformity and variegation."
Yet he disagreed with the pro-
phecies of doom which predict
"a rift in the Jewish world so
wide that it threatens to tear
our people asunder."
Such a forecast, Schindler
said," is predicated on the er-
roneous presumption that all
was sweetness and light in the
blematic issues confronting
world Jewry today, such as the
elusive question of what con-
stitutes Jewishness.
"Without ever agreeing on
everything," Schindler observ-
ed, "we have nevertheless
defined ourselves as one. All
Jews share a living history
that is part of the livine
movement, but to all Jews who
share the destiny of Israel."

Shcharansky Says he Would be Glad if Mandela
Could be Released From Jail
JERUSALEM- (JTA) Anatoly Sharansky said he
would be glad if Black South African leader Nelson
Mandela could be released from prison as part of the East-
West package deal responsible for his own release by the
Soviet Union. But the dissident and aliya activist carefully
distinguished his own movement from that of Mandela who
he noted has been accused of violence in his struggle
against apartheid.
Appearing at a press conference here, Sharansky stress-
ed that he and other Jewish activists in the USSR were
never violent. "Our only battlefields were small apart-
ments" from which world public opinion was alerted to the
plight to Soviet Jewry, he said.
He said he believed in principle that all political prisoners
should be freed. But he did not want Moscow to mislead the
world by comparing his case and Mandela's, trying to imply
thereby that he and his Helsinki Watch groups were in
anyway involved in violent activities such as the anti-

Hopes Run High for Ethiopian Racer
A 16-year-old long-distance
runner whose course through
life has taken him from the
mountains of northern
Ethiopia to AMIT Women's
Kfar Batya Youth Village, in
Raanana is stirring Israel's
sports world.
Dani Besta is being hailed as
perhaps the fastest youth
(under 18) in 3,000 meter
track-and-field national com-
petition. In a recent race he
established a time of 9.28
minutes that left the Israeli
champions behind. Followup
training sessions have enabled
him to shave almost a minute
from that time.
Dani made his mark in
athletics since arriving at
AMIT Women's Youth Village
in Raanana three years ago.
He is one of nearly 200 Ethio-
pian Jews who have found a
haven at Kfar Batya and
AMIT Women's other Youth
Village at Petach Tikvah.
The lanky youth was
unaware of his running ability
until he participated in an in-
tramural track-and field com-
petition in 1984. He caught the
attention of a teacher who en-
couraged him to start training
seriously. A temporary coach
was found to refine his skills.
The results were dramatic.
In a competition organized by
the Israel Defense Forces,
Dani came in first among 410
runners from 65 schools. He
may have missed out on top
honors in last summer's Mac-
cabiah Games' 3,000 meter
youth competition because
that heat began right after the
Sabbath and he did not have
time to travel. Instead, he ran
with the adults capturing a
bronze medal after finishing
just behind the second-place

pian village of Humara. At the
age of 11, he and his family
made a dangerous month-long

confirmed by performance of

Genealogy is not enough."
Schindler argued that the
patrilineal descent decision
does not in fact represent such
a drastic break with tradition.
"There is ample evidence in
the Torah and rabbinical
literature that Jewishness
followed patrilineal lines ...
In our holy texts the male line
is seen as dominant in matters
affecting the priesthood."
Schindler then asked
rhetorically, "If the father is
good enough to transmit
priestly status, why is he not
good enough to bequeath
He added that "Reform
Judaism does not make
changes in order to offend
other Jews or to make
ourselves more palatable to
others and increase our
numbers. The changes are
borne out of conviction."
Schindler went on to
reiterate that the "essential
unity of the Jewish people will
persist" despite any
ideological differences. "Con-
formity is not necessary for
Jewish survival. We can afford
to evolve. Let us view qualify-
ing adjectives such as 'Reform'
and 'Orthodox' for what they
are. The noun is 'Jew.' This
above all: we are Jews."
Schindler ended his sermon
with a call for unity. "Let the
memory of the Shoah con-
stitute a compelling mandate
for unity. Those who sought to
destroy us needed no distinc-
tions. Even as we were
brothers and sisters in death,
so must we ever remain
brothers and sisters in life."
Temple Israel Donates Books
Temple Israel in West Palm Beach recently donated a selec-
tion of 150 books to the Jewish Community Day School
library, a contribution which will serve to enhance the
available resources for the students in their Jewish studies.
Mrs. Elsie Leviton (right) of Temple Israel presented Mrs.
Barbara Steinberg, executive director of the Day School,
with the collection of valuable books.
Dani has come up against an

decide which is' more impor-

He also enjoys learning

Portraiture: More Than An Art Form
If portrait photography con-
jures up images of stilted
poses, artificial backgrounds
and yearbook mugshots, the
photography of Alice Perman
Leveston, on display during
March at the Jewish Family
and Children's Services
(JFCS), 2250 Palm Beach
Lakes Boulevard in West Palm
Beach, will quickly dispel those
prejudices about the art of
photographing human faces.
Mrs. Leveston's portrait
display is part of the JFCS
recognition of Social Worker
Month, the theme of which this
year is "Aging Parents:
Return the Gift of Caring."
"Many young and middle-
aged adults are faced with giv-
ing care to their elderly
parents." said Ned Goldberg,
acting executive director at
JFCS. "Having these photos
prominently displayed will
help remind our clients that we
at JFCS can help not only the
elderly in need but also those
who are responsible for caring
for them through our

Fleischer. Also, when viewing

Mrs. Leveston has concen-
trated on older adults. "In ad-
dition to the enjoyment I
received from working profes-
sionally with older people, I
discovered that they reveal
strong character and per-
sonality in their faces."
Unlike some portrait
photographers who alter the
subject's natural appearance
by using artifice and technical
trickery, Mrs. Leveston insists
on unadorned treatment. All
her subjects are photographed
in their home environment,
because, according to the
photographer, "they are more

photography as a therapeutic

Leveston. "The children have

I am, to hear about the horse-
and-buggy days. In turn, the
elderly are often inspired and
given a sense of hope by their
youthful counterparts."
Commenting specifically on
the theme of Social Worker
Month, Mrs. Leveston said,
"Despite the negative press
regarding the children of older
parents, I am amazed at the
commitment I have found from
middle-aged children toward
their elderly parents. I speak
only from personal experience,
but in general I think there is a
genuine commitment on the
part of children toward their
aging parents."

The Jews of Yugoslavia
habitants of a land with a uni-
que complex of six republics
and two autonomous pro-
vinces, the Jews of Yugoslavia
lead the good life a life of
relative ease, security and
almost total non-
discrimination. Together with
their co-religionists, Moslem,
Catholic and Orthodox, they
co-exist in harmony and tran-
quility in a state where no one
faith dominates to the detri-
ment of any other.
They are also fortunate in
their environment. The land
they inhabit is magnificient
and replete with scenic con-
trasts; dazzling panoramic
mountains, lakes, rivers, and
on the Adriatic, a riviera which
puts those of Italy, France and
Spain to shame.
Tightly organized within the
framework of the Federation
of Jewish Communities, some
6,000 Jews may seem a trifling
number in a nation of 22
million, but they play a
disproportionately large role
in the communal life of the
The saga of the Jews of
Yugoslavia during the shatter-
ing period of World War II is
one of tragedy and triumph.
Numbering 82,000 before the
Holocaust, they were reduced
to 15,000 by war's end. But in
an era when the Nazis practic-
ed genocide on an un-
precedented and incalculable
scale, Yugoslavia Jews fought
Beginning in 1941, Jews in
large numbers joined the par-
tisans in the War of National
Liberation. Jewish youth as
well, were members of action
groups responsible for many
acts of sabotage against their
Nazi oppressors throughout
the country. There were com-
bat units with only Jewish
Their valor in battle was
legendary and to this day,
honored and remembered. The
medical staff of the partisans
was almost totally Jewish.
Fairly reliable figures indicate
that some 4,500 Jews joined in
partisan military activities and
in the Movement of National
Liberation, and that about one-
third perished in the battle
against fascist forces.
Fifteen of those designated
as National Heroes at the end
of the war were Jewish and
two are still living and 150 sur-
vivors were awarded the Par-
tisan Star 1941. In the
Yugoslav Peoples' Army, 14
Jews reached the rank of
general, two of them lieute-
nant general, two major
general and 10 brigadier.
The outstanding Jewish
fighter was Moshe Piade, a
very close friend of the
Supreme Staff of the Army of
Liberation. Streets in
Belgrade and other cities bear
his name, and statues
everywhere commemorate this
heroic figure who died in the
1960's while he was President
of the National Parliament,
ranking almost next to Tito.
He helped make it possible for
8,000 Jews to migrate with all
their possessions to Israel
after 1948.
There are all kinds of rela-
tions with Israel except
diplomatic. Close commercial
ties exist, non-restrictive
tourism between the two na-
tions flourishes. Yugoslav
Jews who settled in Israel are
constantly returning to visit
relatives and friends and the
traffic flows both ways.
Belgrade and Zagreb Jews are
often sent as delegates to con-
gresses and major sports
events in Israel.
With the approval of the
authorities, the Jewish com-
munity in 1985 sent teams to
participate in the 12th Mac-
cabia in Israel, and Yugoslavia
was the only country in the
Eastern and Balkan blocs to do
so. Tel Aviv and Zagreb are in-
itiating a twin-city
Dragan Wollner, president
of the Zagreb Jewish com-
munity, voiced the hope that
diplomatic relations between
the two nations would be an-
nounced within the next year
or two as a formal expression
of the de facto recognition that
presently seems to exist.
Although Yogoslavia is a
leader of the non-aligned coun-
tries and the PLO has an office
in Belgrade, the government
exerts strict control of the
Arab students in the Universi-
ty of Belgrade. There are no
anti-Semitic manifestations,
nor would they be tolerated
were they to occur.
Jewish officials in Belgrade
point out that in 1984, when a
writer incorporated the in-
famous "Protocols of the
Elders of Zion" into a book he
was publishing, the Jewish
Federation protested to the
Supreme Court of Serbia,
which promptly prohibited
distribution of the volume. The
attitude of the press toward
Israel is somewhat mixed and
varies from one republic to
another, but it is on the whole
quite favorable. The sentiment
of the man on the street is
almost universally pro, accor-
ding to Jewish leaders.
In a theoretically classless
society, there are classes and
degrees of wealth, according
to Andreas Preger, director of
youth and education for the
federated Jewish com-
munities. He noted that Jews
are in the middle and upper
ranges of the economic scale:
doctors, dentists, professors,
engineers, administrators and
Many also serve in high
government positions. They
play leading roles in the
cultural, artistic and intellec-
tual life of the nation. There is
a voracious demand, he said,
for the works of foreign
authors, and the books of LB.
Singer, for example, are sold
out as soon as they appear.
A tour of the communities
Belgrade, with 1,500 Jews;
Zagreb, 1,400; Sarajevo,
1,200, and Split about 300 -
revealed that the Federation
officials in each city are wag-
ing a battle for Jewish sur-
vival. The number of Jews is
shrinking, very slowly but
steadily. There is more stabili-
ty in the large centers, but the
smaller communities are
diminishing rapidly. Zagreb
leaders reported that a census
of the Jewish population is
now under way and will be
shortly completed by the
In Dubrovnik the "jewel of
the Adriatic," where there had
been 350 Jews in the 18th cen-
tury, only eight are left and
not even one family remains
intact. Mixed marriages are
the rule, not only here, but
everywhere. The bitter
heritage of World War II was
the scarcity of Jewish women
as mates for returning Jewish
prisoners of war. The sole
vestige of Jewish life in
Dubrovnik is the exquisite but
little-used 14th century
synagogue on "Jewish
Mixed marriages and the
secular state are major
reasons for the total lack of Or-
thodox Jews. Most Jews, ac-
cording to Preger, are non-
believers and do not attend
synagogue. It was far different
before the war, when there
were strong Sephardic and
Ashkenazic groups with firm
religious convictions. Today,
there is only one rabbi
(Sephardic) in all Yugoslavia.
He is based in Belgrade but
travels to the various com-
munities to hold services. A
significant aspect of Federa-
tion activity is its summer
camp program. The camp,
which is located on the lovely
Adriatic coast at Pirovac,
north of Split, operates from
June to September, and
receives some 400 community
members ranging in age from
6 to 80, in groups of 80 at a
time. In June and September,
the elderly take over, but the
summer months are reserved
for youngsters from 6 to 10,
and from 10 to 15.
What is of special interest, is
that the Federation also in-
vites youth from such Eastern
European countries as
Czechoslovakia, Poland,
Bulgaria and Hungary. The
latter country poses a problem
in this regard, local Jewish
leaders indicated, because the
Hungarian authorities fear
that their youth will receive
Zionist indoctrination at the
camp. Still, some young
Hungarians attend and their
visits are arranged through
private channels.
A touching moment during
this Balkan odyssey was the
visit to the only Jewish old-age
home in the country, located in
Zagreb. Set in a private park,
the handsome building con-
tains well-furnished studio
apartments and rooms,
spacious lounges, a hospital
library, and an elegant, flower-
bedecked dining room worthy
of a four-star hotel.

to the upper 90's are well-

Demjanjuk Remanded For
15 Days by Jerusalem Court
JERUSALEM (JTA) Accused Nazi war criminal
John Demjanjuk was remanded in custody for 15 days by a
Jerusalem court last week.
Demjanjuk, appearing before the court, again denied his
involvement in the gassing of Jews at the Treblinka con-
centration camp as he has persistently done through the
legal proceedings in the United States.
He told the court, "I just want to say I am completely the
wrong person." He said he "never was in that place"
(Treblinka) and that his being brought to Israel to stand
trial for his war time activities was "completely unfair."
Demjanjuk, a 65-year-old native of the Ukraine, denied
having been a Nazi collaborator and added that he was
himself held in a prison camp by the Nazis. He has claimed
that he was a soldier in the Soviet army and was captured
during the war.
Police Deputy Commander Alex Ish-Shalom told the
court that there was evidence provided by Treblinka sur-
vivors attesting to the accused man's crimes at Treblinka,
where Demjanjuk was known as "Ivan the Terrible" by in-
mates because of his cruel treatment of prisoners there.
Legal circles here expect Demjanjuk's interrogation, by a
team of police experts, to last for several weeks. His trial
will be held in a hall on the ground floor of the Binyanei
Haooma Convention Center in Jerusalem. The Ministry of
Justice is already planning adjacent facilities to accom-
modate the mass of local and foreign journalists expected
to cover the proceedings.
