CHAG SAM EACH PURIM HAPPY PURIM EVERYONE.
Purim is a happy holiday in Israel, celebrated by grownups
and children unabashedly dressing up in costumes, singing,
dancing in the streets, and displaying homemade floats. This

a Jewish Agency absorption center near Rishon LeZion,

Belt-Tightening
May Increase Unemployment
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV 4*TA) More
than 5,000 workers are ex-
pected to lose their jobs during
the next few months as
reorganizations and belt-
tightening measures are im-
plemented to save some of
Israel's major industries from
financial collapse.
That figure was estimated
by government officials,
economic and financial experts
who are mounting a rescue
operation for Histadrut-owned
and other publicly held enter-
prises saddled with massive
debts and severe losses.
The bad news compounded a
report released by the Central
Bureau of Statistics recently
that nearly 100,000 Israelis
are presently unemployed,
representing 6.7 percent of the
work force. Unemployment
rose by 16 percent in 1985, the
report said.
The industries affected are
bellwethers of the Israeli
economy, ranging from high-
tech to globe-girdling shipping
services. Prominent among
them are Kupat Holim, the
Histadrut sick fund; Solel
Boneh, the Histadrut-owned
construction company which is
the largest in Israel; the Els-
cint Medical Imaging Co.,

which manufactures
sophisticated diagnostic equip-
ment; Zim Israel Navigation
Co.; Vulkan Foundries in
Haifa; and the Beth Shemesh
engine works. The rescue
operations are expected to
give the banks a larger say in
running the firms and in the
public bodies concerned. They
will involve substantial reduc-
tions of the labor force in every
case. An important feature of
the plan is to convert in-
debtedness into stock shares.
The government is also ex-
pected to approve bond issues
to finance the rescheduling of
short term debts.
Premier Shimon Peres, a
firm believer in the develop-
ment of high-tech industries,
has taken a personal hand in
working out a rescue package
for Elscint, which generates
some $10 million in exports
each month.
The company, which only a
year ago was being hailed as a
model of is kind, is $80 million
in debt to commercial banks.
About $50 million in short
term loans will be rescheduled
to four-year loans. A manage-
ment shake-up, the closure or
sale of some of its subsidiary
plants in Israel and abroad,
and new investments by the
parent company are elements
of the package.
The Kupat Holim recovery
plan also involves the
rescheduling of debts, which
are said to have grown from
about $20 million to more than
$200 million a year because of
high interest rates and delays
in the payment of government
subsidies. Some of its assets
will be sold. Staff will be cut
and subscriber fees will be
raised.

Saudi Arms Sale
Administration Defends Proposal
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The Reagan Administration
will try to prevent Congress
from rejecting its proposal to
sell $354 million in missiles to
Saudi Arabia, by stressing the
Saudis need the weapons to de-
fend themselves and other
Persian Gulf states from Iran.
The missile package which
was sent to Congress last
week does "not represent a
threat to Israel," a senior Ad-
ministration official asserted
in briefing reporters. "This
sale will not threaten Israel's
qualitative military edge nor
change the power equation in
the Middle East," he stressed.
The proposed sale includes
1,666 Sidewinder air-to-air
missiles, of which 995 are the
most advanced type of
Sidewinder; 2000 Stinger
shoulder-fired ground-to-air
missile systems plus 600
replacement missiles; and 100
Harpoon air-to-sea missiles.
The Saudis now have 2,500
Sidewinders, 200 Stinger
systems with 200 replacement
missiles and 178 Harpoon sea-
to-sea missiles.
The official said that the Ad-
ministration had planned to
propose this package at the
end of the year but had ad-
vanced it because of the threat
caused by Iranian troops mov-
ing to the border of Kuwait.
"That not only threatens our
interests but deeply troubles
our friends in the area," he
said.
The official also pointed to
the current unstable situation
in South Yemen "exacerbated
by Soviet interference" which
he said "raises the potential of
a renewed threat on Saudi
Arabia's southern border."
At the same time, the official
conceded that deliveries of the
missiles would not start until
1989 and run through 1991.
However, he stressed, "the
fact of American support for
Saudi Arabia will act as a
deterrent on Iran."
He added that "acting now
will send a clear signal to Iran.
It will also reduce the chances
that we would have to take
emergency action later on our
own to protect our own
interests."
Perhaps the most important
reason was noted by the of-

Al-Masri Assassination
A Windfall For The PLO
By GIL SEDAN
NABLUS (JTA) The
assassination of Nablus Mayor
Zafer Al-Masri on March 2 has
proved a political windfall for
the Palestine Liberation
Organization, which has em-
braced the moderate Palesti-
nian in death as a martyr to
their cause.
Al-Masri, who had close
political and family ties to the
Hashemite regime in Jordan,
was appointed to office by the
Israeli authorites two months
ago. According to the usual
PLO logic his acceptance of
the post should have branded
him a collaborator with the
enemy. But the PLO now
claims him as one of their own.
By doing so, they are in tune
with the people of Nablus, the
largest Arab town in the West
Bank, among whom Al-Masri
was immensely popular. One
of the wealthiest men in the
territory, he spent money out
of pocket to help the needy.
And, partly because of his
wealth, he was not regarded as
a run-of-the mill political
aspirant out to improve his
personal fortunes.
The PLO also benefits by his
death insofar as it is a setback
for Israel's policy of restoring
local governance in the ter-
ritories to Arab hands. This

Israel Hopes To Avoid
Confrontation With U.S.
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) Israel will avoid an open confrontation with the
Reagan Administration over its plans to sell $300 million in advanced weaponry
to Saudi Arabia, political observers here believe. The government will continue,
however, to maintain its long-standing objection in principle to the sale of U.S.
arms to avowed enemies of Israel.
That, policy appeared implicit in a statement just issued by the Prime
Minister's Office which asserted that "reports according to which Israel has in-
timated to the U.S. that it will not oppose the arms deal with Saudi Arabia have
no basis. Israel adheres to its opposition to arms sales to countries that are in a
state of war with it a stand well known to the U.S. Administration."
According to observers, this means Israel will not mobilize its supporters in
Congress and the U.S. Jewish community for a knock-down, dragout fight such
as it waged and lost in 1981 against the sale of AW ACS reconnaissance
planes to Saudi Arabia. Israel had more success late last year when Reagan was
forced to shelve proposed arms sales to Jordan, which ran into overwhelming bi-
partisan opposition in both houses of Congress.
There were strong reservations among the legislators over the arms deal
with Jordan, apart from Israel's opposition to it. The government doubtlessly
hopes the same reservations will manifest themselves when the Saudi arms sale
comes up.

Day School Bar Mitzvah
Community Celebration To Culminate With Dinner Dance
I
The Jewish Community Day
School's Bar Mitzvah year
celebration will culminate on
Saturday evening, March 29
with a dinner-dance at the
Hyatt Palm Beaches, beginn-
ing with cocktails at 7:30 p.m.
and a kosher dinner at 8:30
.m. A brief Havdalah service,
ed by the Day School's eighth
grade class, will also be a part
of evening's festivities, and
music will be provided by the
Gary Lawrence Orchestra.
Benjamin S. Hornstein, who
has played a major role in the
creation and continued growth
of the Day School, will be
honored at the dinner-dance by
community leaders and
benefactors who have helped
the joy and to honor Mr. Horn-
stein and others who made this
celebration possible."
Also featured during the
dinner-dance will be the
unveiling and distribution of
the Day School's first Com-
memorative Journal, a special-
ly published 120-page book
which chronicles in words and
photos the institution's ex-
citing coming of age.
"We have commissioned a
talented artist to create the
cover for the journal," said
Commemorative Journal co-
chair Irene Dardashti, "and
the outstanding support we
received from local advertisers
is further proof that this com-
munity acknowledges the
establish and support the Day quality of our school's leader-
School, known for its commit-
ment to excellence in Jewish
and general studies.
"The dinner-dance is design-
ed to be the social complement
to the Day School Bar Mitzvah
Sabbath services," said
dinner-dance chairperson
Shirley Dellerson. "The entire
community is invited to share
ship, faculty and student
body."
"Representing the broad
spectrum of life in Palm Beach
County, the Commemorative
Journal will also contain con-
gratulatory messages from
local community and political
leaders and organizations,"
said Commemorative Journal
co-chair Barbara Dayan.
"Since it also includes a writ-
ten and pictorial history of the
Day School's first 13 years,
our journal encapsulates a
very vital period of growth in
the Palm Beach County Jewish
Community."
Day School president Dr. Ar-
thur Virshup concluded, "The
dinner-dance celebration is a
fitting way for us to honor Mr.
Hornstein, to review the suc-
cesses of the past, and to
prepare for the challenges that
lie ahead. Just as our com-
munity has grown tremen-
dously in the last 13 years, so
will it continue to grow, and
the Jewish Community Day
School is committed to
meeting the educational needs
of our students for years to
come."
Couvert for the Jewish Com-
munity Day School Dinner
Dance is $113 per person and
black tie attire is optional. For

Project Renewal In Hod HaSharon
Physical Changes Reflect
Growing Pride

The do-it-yourself spirit prevails in the housing renovations
taking place in Hod HaSharon with the assistance of Project
Renewal funds.
(The following article was
written with the cooperation of
Elizabeth Homans, Palm
Beach County's Project
Renewal representative in
Israel.)
Having discussed the
positive impact of Project
Renewal's Early Childhood
Development program in Hod
HaSharon in last week's
Jewish Floridian, we may now
examine some of the many
physical changes the twinning
with Palm Beach County has
wrought for the citizens of
Giora and Gil Amal.
In terms of housing renova-
tions, Project Renewal profes-
sionals are working closely
with residents and the Israeli
government's housing agency,
Amidor. Refurbishment in
both neighborhoods has includ-
ed external renovations
(garden planting, yard re-
juvenation, exterior painting
and general outside repair), in-
ternal renovations (construc-
tion of new inside walls,
modifications of existing inter-
nal structures), and

AJCongress Criticizes Competing Arab Claims
Graham's Stance
On Creationism
Calling the term creationism
legislative legerdemain, the
American Jewish Congress
recently called on Governor
Graham to rescind his order
that a Textbook Selection
Committee find a biological
book which balances the scien-
tific theory of evolution with
creationism.
"Whether it is called simply
creationism, Biblical Crea-
tionism, scientific creationism
or creation science, the doc-
trine it refers to the belief in
the literal interpretation of the
Biblical story of Creation is
a religious one, a matter of
religious dogma which, if ac-
cepted, is accepted as a matter
of faith," stated Linda J.
Ehrlich, chair of the Commis-
sion on Law and Social Action.
"We believe that this is a
violation of the Constitution's
mandate of church-state
separation," Ms. Ehrlich
added.
Recently, there have been
calls to "balance" the teaching
of Darwinian evolutionary
theory with "scientific crea-
tionism." The 1967 decision in
Epperson V. Arkansas made it
clear that school officials may
not prohibit the teaching of
evolutionary theory. Those
who, for religious reasons, ob-
ject to Darwin's theory of
evolution have responded with
calls for equal treatment of
"scientific creationism" and
evolutionary theory in science
classes.
The courts have so far been
unanimous in rejecting such
claims, including most recently
a Louisiana "equal time"
statute. They have done so
after determining that the doc-
trine of creationism is a
religious doctrine without
scientific basis.
The Constitution does not
forbid teaching about religion.
Therefore, there would be no
constitutional objection to
teaching a philosophy course
on the origins of either the
solar system or humankind, or
both, provided that the
religious theories of origin are
identified as such, not passed
off as science, and not endors-
ed by the school.
"The Constitution stands as
no bar to the simple statement
by teachers (including science
teachers) that there are
religious groups which
disagree with the theory of
evolution. Such statements
might do much to defuse the
controversy over the teaching
of evolution in the schools,"
Ms. Ehrlich concluded.
Terrorist Sideshow Meant
To Provoke War
By M.J. ROSENBERG
Not everyone is convinced
that mindless terrorism was
behind the outrages at Rome
and Vienna airports last
December. In fact, one
California-based Middle East
analyst, Peter Borden, argues
that the airport attacks were
strategically staged "to pro-
voke a confrontation between
Israeli-operated U.S. weapons
systems and Soviet SAMs" in
Lebanon's Bekaa valley. In his
view, the goal of the terrorists
was to ignite an Israeli-Syrian
war rather than to merely
stage a spectacular act of mass
murder.
Borden makes a persuasive
case. He says that the "seeds"
for the recent acts of terror
were sown during the first
days of the 1982 Lebanon war.
At that time, Israel confronted
a network of Syrian anti-
aircraft missile batteries in the
Bekaa. "In the resulting bat-
tle," he writes, "Israel
destroyed 19 batteries, severe-
ly damaged four, and downed
86 MiG fighters without the
loss of a single plane .. Simp-
ly put, the Soviet air defense
systems and tactics were pro-
ven totally inadequate, which
placed great pressure on the
Soviets to modify and re-test
them under similar condi-
tions." A terrorist-provoked
war could provide the test con-
ditions the Soviets and Syrians
may want.
Borden asserts that this is
not the first time that Moscow
and Damascus have attempted
to use diversionary attacks to
either instigate a war or to
draw attention from war plans
already made. In September,
1973, three weeks before the
Yom Kippur War, Syria

Israel's "right to exist" -
that offensive diplomatic
phrase used in regard to no
other country -t is non-
negotiable. And its historic,
religious and strategic connec-
tions to the territories gained
in the 1967 Six-Day War are
deep and undeniable. But in
addition to Israel and the
Palestinian Arabs of the West
Bank and Gaza Strip, other
Arab and Islamic parties lay
claim to the land, according to
Prof. Daniel Pipes, associate
professor of history at the
Naval War College.
Pipes, author of In th* Path
of God; Islam and Political
Power, said that these com-
peting claims are part of the
background to the recent col-
lapse of the Hussein-Arafat in-
itiative. "The Palestinian na-
tional movement. sees
Palestine as a separate na-
tion,' Pipes said. That makes it
"distinct from the Arab na-
tional movement, which sees
Palestine as part of a larger
whole."
In the pan-Arab view the
West Bank is to the Arab
world as Maryland is to the
United States. And among
Arabs "Palestine" can mean
different things, from just the
West Bank and Gaza to those
areas plus Israel within
pre-1967 lines, or all- of Man-
datory Palestine, which also
included Jordan.
Jordan which occupied the
West Bank from 1948 to 1967
and Syria, also assert claims
on the territories. Iran cham-
pions a pan-Islamic interest,
evidenced in its war slogan
that "the road to Jerusalem
leads through Baghdad" and
in its suppport of anti-Israel
Shi'ite fundamendalists in
Lebanon.
"The three key claims are
the Palestinian, Jordanian and
Syrian," Pipes said, each with
a strength and a weakness.
The Palestinian claim has
"legitimacy bestowed by the
Arab states and the general
support of the inhabitants" of
the territories. Countering this
is the structure and extremism
of Palestinian leadership and
its inability to make decisions,
which goes back to the origins
of Palestinain Arab na-
tionalism in the 1920s.
The strength of Jordan's
claim lies in the fact that
"Israel prefers to deal with
it." That is also its weakness,
Pipes noted, compromising the
Hashemite Kingdom in the
eyes of the Arab world. As for
Syria, military power backs its
claim, but the Arab world does
not perceive Syria as possess-
ing a genuine role in Palesti-
nian
While Hussein would like a
West Bank-Gaza confedera-
tion with Jordan, Assad
"would have a Palestinian
government in the West Bank
or all of Palestine related to
Syria as Czechoslovakia is to
the Soviet Union," Pipes ex-
plained. Assad hopes to
fashion the same arrangement
in Lebanon and would like a
puppet in Jordan as well.
Since the Arab claimants
"have mutual claims on each
other," even in the unlikely
event of an Israeli-PLO agree-
ment "the Arab-Israeli conflict
would continue. But if Syria
and Israel reached an accom-
modation, Jordan would leap
to follow" and that would, in
actuality, end the Arab-Israeli
conflict, leaving the PLO in
the cold.
However, "Syria has ag-
gressive interests" and "Jor-
dan on its own is weak,"
unable to reach a deal with
Israel. Although the
diplomatic "peace process' has
a life of its own, Pipes noted, a
resolution of the overall pro-
blem is not in sight."

Preparing For
Summit II
In the coming months, the
uniqueness of a summit
meeting and General
Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev's
visit to the United States, the
first such visit since
Brezhnev's in 1973, will be the
focal point for the Soviet
Jewry campaign in this coun-
try. Indeed, the Kremlin has
already focused on human
rights'and Jewish emigration
in the context of Summit 11.
and has done so with an
understanding of U.S. media
and opinion formation.
The USSR's relaxation on a
small number of prominent
Jewish and non-Jewish human
rights cases, the Western
media's attention to contrived
speculation about renewed
Israeli-East Bloc relations,
fanciful notions of "airlifts" of
refuseniks, and news leaks of
privately negotiated
agreements with the Kremlin,
have severely blunted the ac-
curate public understanding of
the severity of Soviet Jewry's
situation.
While we don't know what
the situation will be for Soviet
Jews when Gorbachev comes
to Washington, we cannot wait
to see. We must now begin the
critical task of strengthening
our movement to prepare for
the visit.
Should the Soviet Union
change existing policies and
decide to permit Jews to leave,
and ease up on the current
harassment and arrests of
Jewish activists before the
General Secretary comes, the
Jewish community having
agreed to more flexible policies
more than six months ago -
will certainly react favorably.
Should the situation not
change, however, we have no
choice but to respond very
loudly and publicly with our
concern and outrage.
The Soviet Union is already
engaged in its own campaign,
but one of disinformation.
They would like public opinion
to believe that Jews live better
in the USSR than do other
minorities; that all those who
wish to leave have left; that no
one else wants to leave; and
that the Jewish Prisoners of
Conscience are "criminals."
The culmination of this cam-
paign will be a major event,
centered on the Gorbachev
visit. The process of building
toward that event is as critical
as the specific events created
for the day he arrives. That
process should:
(1) establish a solid founda-
tion of U.S. opinion on human
rights before the media turns
public attention to other

Meanwhile, Arafat needs the
power of an existing state
behind him and so he turns
alternately to Syria and Jor-
dan. Hussein needs Palesti-
nian legitimacy, which the
PLO can confer. For the same
reason Syrian Pesident Hafez
Assad set up an alternative
Palestinian establishment call-
ed the Palestine National
Salvation Front. "These are
not just stooges," Pipes noted.
"Assad is building all this to
say eventually that Arafat is
just a factional leader, that
most of the fighters are in
Damascus."

Purim
An Important Holiday for
Nursing Home Residents
By MURRAY KERN
"I am not a Gentile", ex-
claimed the elderly resident of
the nursing home. When asked
if he is a Christian, he
answered in the affirmative,
explained his claim to his
Hebrew heritage and express-
ed his pride in his Hebrew
forebears.
The pride displayed in the
Hebrew Biblical heritage by
this non-Jew, who, incidentaly
attends Sabbath services con-
ducted each Friday by
members of the Jewish
Federation Chaplain Aides
Program, is not unusual. The
Torah, biblical events, and
Patriarchs of the ancient
Hebrews are shared by
members of other religions.
However, the Book of
Esther is uniquely Jewish.
Purim is a national holiday and
as such is especially significant
to residents of nursing homes
particularly those homes
which are non-Jewish.
The Purim drama, filled with
intrigue, suspense and ex-
citing denouement, including a
villain who ranks with the
worst and large heroic
characters, told in pageantry
by children or recited classical-
ly in the reading of the
Megillah, brings special joy to
the elderly in nursing homes.
Along with the help of the Chaplain Aides, children from the
Jewish Community Day School help bring Purim alive for
residents of area nursing homes.
The residents, often bereft of
some sensory and physical
abilities, with few oppor-
tunities to enhance their self-
esteem, experience vicariously
the triumph of the Jewish peo-
ple at that moment in history.
The Purim holiday, coming
in the month of March, in the
context of nursing home activi-
ty, does not compete with any
Christian holidays as do
Chanukah and Passover.
Jewish residents often invite
their Christian neighbors to
join them in drowning out the
name of Haman and perhaps
partake of some goodies serv-
ed at the service.
It doesn't take much effort
to enhance the quality of life
for a nursing home resi-
dent. .a smile, a handshake, a
greeting or the opportunity to
participate in a holiday like
Purim of which they are justly
proud. Members of the Jewish
Federation Chaplain Aide pro-
gram, under the direction of
Rabbi Alan R. Sherman, will
be telling the story of Purim in
homes for the aged throughout
Palm Beach County.
Persons interested in joining
the Jewish Federation
Chaplain Aide Program may
call the office of the Chaplain at

Egypt and Israel Continue Talks
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Israel and Egypt began
another round of talks in Cairo
recently to advance the nor-
malization process between
the two countries and to decide
how to submit the Taba border
dispute to international
arbitration.
The Israeli negotiating team
arrived to find the Egyptian
capital calm but still tense
following riots by disaffected
police conscripts. They were
greeted at the airport by
representatives of the Egyp-
tian Foreign ministry. Their
motorcade sped through
streets emptied of traffic and
pedestrians because of the all-
night curfew still in effect.
Sources in Jerusalem said
the talks were being held as
scheduled to demonstrate that
the authorities are in control of
the situation and the wat-
chword is business as usual.
The Israeli team was headed
by Avraham Tamir, director
general of the Prime
Minister's Office and David
Kimche, director general of
the Foreign Ministry.
Israel's Minister of Tourism,
Avraham Sharir, is scheduled
to visit Cairo soon. Israelis
believe the Egyptians will pro-
pose joint package tours in an
effort to revive Israeli tourism
to Egypt which was hard hit by
the recent unrest. Mustapha
Khali], a close associate of
President Hosni Mubarak and
deputy chairman of his ruling
party, told Yediot Achronot in
an interview that Israel should
not be alarmed by the latest
events in Egypt.
"You should not have any
doubts regarding the peace
process, and you do not need
to reevaluate the situation,"
he said. He was quoted as
assuring Israel that Egypt will
fulfill all of its obligations
under the 1979 peace treaty.

of
THE ENDOWMENT FUND
OF THE
JEWISH FEDERATION OF
PALM BEACH COUNTY
BY ARNOLD I.
SCHWARTZMAN
ENDOWMENT DIRECTOR
The Philanthropic Fund
represents the fastest-growing
element of Federation Endow-
ment programs. Because the
advantageous tax attributes of
the Fund are important to
both donors and Federations,
it is essential that the rules
governing the operation of
such funds be satisfied.
By definition, Philanthropic
Fund is an integral part of a
Federation's Endowment
Fund. Its legal and tax status
is generally the same as that of
other component funds: The
only distinction between a
Philanthropic Fund and other
funds is that the governing in-
strument of a Philanthropic
Fund provides a procedure
through which the donor can
make recommendations con-
cerning distributions from the
Fund.
If a Philanthropic Fund is
not administered according to
the appropriate rules, adverse
NOTICE
TO ALL DONORS
(FROM THE ENDOWMENT FUND OF THE JEWISH
FEDERATION OF PALM BEACH COUNTY)
The Tax Reform Act of 1984 imposed new appraisal re-
quirements for charitable contributions of appreciated pro-
perty made by individuals and certain corporations in 1985
and thereafter. The rules apply to contributions of all types
of property other than publicly traded securities where the
claimed value of the property exceeds $5,000 ($10,000 in
the case of closely-held stock). If you are claiming a deduc-
tion in 1985 for a charitable contribution subject to these
new rules, you must complete Form 8283 and attach that
form, and a qualified appraisal for the donated property, to
your 1985 federal income tax return. Please consult your
tax advisor for more information concerning these
requirements.
consequences may result both
for the donor and the Federa-
tion. When the fund is treated
as a private foundation, the
donor s deduction would be
limited to 20 percent of his ad-
justed gross income with no
carry-over allowed for future
years, if the initially con-
tributed amount exceeds such
a 20 percent limit.
If the initial gift is ap-
preciated property, the deduc-
tion is not allowed for the pro-
perty's value, but for such
value reduced by 40 percent of
any appreciation over the
donor's cost basis. Obviously, a
Philanthropic Fund donor
would want to comply with the
procedures for governance of
his or her Philanthropic Fund
to avoid the pitfalls of being
treated as if that fund were a
private foundation.
If handled correctly, the
Philanthropic Fund can pro-
vide not only the increased
deduction, but also avoid all
reduction of appreciation over
the donor's cost basis and have
Israeli-Greek Relations On Hold
By JUDITH KOHN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
When Spain established
diplomatic relations with
Israel in January there was
eager speculation that a
similarly long-awaited move
from Athens would follow. The
expectations were heightened
by a four-day meeting in
Greece between Foreign
Minister Karlos Papoulias and
David Kimche, Director-
General of Israel's Foreign
Ministry.
Then, like a bucket of cold
water dispassionately over-
turned on a barely rekindled
flame, came the news from
Belgrade, where the visiting
Papoulias gave an interview to
Greek journalists: Athens will
stick by its "political prin-
ciples," he told the journalists.
Formal diplomatic relations
are, for now at least, out of the
question.
The unequivocal negative
stance of Papoulias left disap-
pointment and puzzlement in
its wake, especially since rela-
tions had appeared to be war-
ming up between the two coun-
tries. Greece has all the com-
ponents of an Embassy in Tel
Aviv. The only real difference
is that they fail to add up to an
Embassy, calling itself instead
a "diplomatic representation."
Turkey, on the other hand,
has an Embassy, but recently
moved more closely into line
with other Moslem states by
lowering its diplomatic
representation to the level of
Second Secretary, and thus
stripping the formal represen-
tation of its substance.
Concern about economic
sanctions from Arab states
and possible terrorist attacks
against Spaniards at home and
abroad had long delayed
Madrid's decision to establish
relations with Israel.
But once the move was
taken by Spain, a recently-
admitted member of the Euro-
pean Economic Community
(EEC), which had made
recognition of Israel one of the
conditions for Spanish
membership, the simple step
from de facto to de jure
recognition of Israel by Greece
another EEC member
would have hardly appeared a
dramatic break with past
policy, according to advocates
of Greek recognition of Israel.
"It's ridiculous," said
Joseph Lovinger, veteran
leader of Greek's tiny Jewish
community, of his country's
failure to come through after
Spain made the move.
Lovinger, who was recently
here on one of his frequent
visits to the United States,
said that before the Papoulias
statement he had predicted to
a U.S. Senator here that for-
mal recognition would come
about under the leadership of
Prime Minister Andreas
Papandreou.
But a relatively new and
otherwise unrelated concern of
Athens has worked its way in-
to the issue, according to Lov-
inger, by adding to his coun-
try's sense of vulnerability to
possible Arab sanctions.
The issue is the Greek-
Turkish conflict over the island
of Cyprus. The conflict provid-
ed a new chip for Arab states
seeking to dissuade Greek
recognition of Israel, accor-

gested by the donor with funas
in excess of amounts

4. Where the public charity
solicits for Advised Funds
the donor's basis.
The Treasury Regulations
list adverse factors which
could result in an Advised
Fund's being treated not as a
component Fund and certain
positive factors which will sup-
port the conclusion that a
Fund is a component Fund.
The IRS will examine the
nature of a donor's advice or
recommendations after assets
have been transferred to a
public charity to see whether
there has been a direct or in-
direct reservation of any right
to direct distributions or in-
vestments. Where the only
criterion considered by the
public charity is the advice of
the donor, it will be concluded
that the donor has reserved
the right to direct distribu-
tions, and the gift will be
deemed to be made to a private
foundation.
On the other hand, the
Treasury Regulations describe
positive factors which would
lead to the conclusion that the
donor did not reserve the right
to direct distributions. Among
these factors are the following:
1. Where the public charity
supports stated needs that it
has determined are to be met,
has its staff independently
determined that the donor's
advice for distributions is con-
sistent with those needs?
2. Where the public has set
out guidelines listing specific
charitable needs it intends to
meet, is the donors advice con-
sistent with those guidelines?
3. Does the public charity
the advantage of taking the
full appreciated value into ac-
count when calculating his or
her deduction, while at the
fered by the donor?
A Federation, as a public
charity, should observe the
Regulations in its administra-
tion of Philanthropic Funds.
Meeting each of the above
positive elements and avoiding
the adverse ones will ensure
that the anticipated charitable
deduction is preserved for the
donor. One of the great
vehicles available for having a
continuing right of suggestion
or recommendation for the
distribution of one's charitable
dollars is the Philanthropic
Fund. Having the privilege to
provide such advisory recom-
mendations over a period of
time is a source of unique
satisfaction for the donor so
that he or she may see where
charitable dollars are going
during the course of his or her
lifetime.
Not only is this an effective
marketing tool for the
establishment of Philanthropic
Funds, but also provides conti-
nuing satisfaction to the donor
that his charitable recommen-
dations are being evaluated by
a committee who keeps in
mind the purposes for which
Endowment Funds may be us-
ed and takes painstaking care
to see that the rules and
regulations with regard to the
governance of such funds are
followed strictly.
If you would like more infor-
mation on how you may begin

today by the establishment of a
Philanthropic Fund, please

Notes from Washington
Young Leadership Conferees Briefed On Issues
By LLOYD KESNICK
Along with 3,000 other young Jewish leaders, 27 members of
the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County's Leadership
Development program met in Washington on March t-U to par-
ticipate in the United Jewish Appeal's Young Leadership
Conference. r
The agenda included meetings with congressmen and senators
during which the future loaders of the American Jewish Com-
munity were able to ask questions and explain their concerns to
legislators.
Before going up to Capitol Hill, however, the assembled con-
ferees were briefed by Thomas Dine, executive director of the
American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), and Mark
Talisman, director of the Washington Action Office for the Coun-
cil of Jewish Federations (CJF).
In a subsequent issue of The Jewish Floridian, local par-
ticipants will share their feelings on the recent conference, accom-
panied by photos taken in Washington during their sojourn.
Dine: 'Carry Our Flag On Capitol Hill'
AIPAC director Tom Dine
began his address to the
Young Leadership Conference
by dismissing the political
debate over who is a Jew and
saying, "For me the question
is what and who is a political
Jew."
Calling the gathering of over
3,000 "the best and the
brightest," Dine defined their
purpose by saying, "You are
here to impact upon the
political scene," and he
brought the audience up-to-
date on several pertinent
issues.
Characterizing present
U.S.-Israel relations as "very
good," Dine said that the Ad-
ministration has asked Con-
gress for $3 billion in aid for
Israel for fiscal 1987, $1.8
billion for military assistance
and $1.2 billion in economic
assistance.
"But the name of the game
in this city today is Gramm-
Rudman,' Dine declared,
holding up a photo-copy of a
check representing $51.6
million in U.S. aid returned by
Israel prior to the March 1
deadline for an across-the-
board 4.3 percent budget cut
mandated by Gramm-Rudman.
Dine reported that a $90
million addition to the military
aid package, agreed to in Oc-
tober, 1985 was cut from the
current budget, and Dine call-
ed on the members of the au-
dience to urge their Con-
gressmen to appropriate the
full $3 billion. But he also ad-
mitted that "no program, par-
ticularly a foreign one, should
be seen as more important
than farmers and others who
need social delivery services
provided by the federal
government.'
Dine went on to a detailed
analysis of the proposed Saudi
Arms sale, which he predicted
would be formally presented to
Congress this week.
"We on principle and on
policy are opposed to such a
proposition," Dine said,
"because it's not in America's
best interest."
Dine noted that the strings
attached to the 1981 sale of
AWACS to Saudi Arabia,
namely that the Saudis give
substantial assistance to the
peace process, have been
blatantly cut. "The
characterization of the Saudis
as an ally of the United States
is perverse," he said.
According to the AIPAC
director, the original Saudi
arms request, made secretly
one year ago, included F-15s,
Ml tanks, combat helicopters
and various missile systems.
However, Dine theorized
that "a year later we think
what will be offered to the
Saudis is dramatically dif-
ferent; it is reduced in both
sophistication and auantitv of
Tom Dine
weapons systems,'1 and he
estimated that the original
$1.5 billion request will be scal-
ed down to a proposed $354
million.
Nevertheless, he pointed out
that if Saudis receive 1600
Sidewinders air-to-air missiles,
a large quantity of Stinger
Missiles and 100 Harpoon air-
to-air missiles, as proposed, a
lot of "lethality" will be chang-
ing hands.
Dine said moreover that if
the Saudis receive 1600 more
Sidewinders their missile-to-
aircraft ratio will be 37:1,
three times that of the U.S.
Air Force, and six times
greater than that of Israel's
Air Force.
The AIPAC director
predicted that the Administra-
tion's argument for the
justification of such a sale will
be that "Iran is on another of-
fensive against Iraq, and after
Iraq is Kuwait, and after
Kuwait comes the Saudi oil
fields."
After informing the group
that 61 Senators signed a let-
ter objecting to the original
proposal last fall, Dine sug-
gested that additional
pressure should be brought to
bear urging Congress to reject
the new proposal also.
Commenting on the politics
of the Arab world, Dine said
the assassination of Nablus
Mayor Al-Masri was just
another indication that "the
PLO is unwilling to com-
promise with the government
of Israel, because those in-
terested in making peace are
the targets of murderers."
Although Dine admitted that

Tzadia Iraqu, who has the
responsibility of working with
residents and architects in the
planning of renovations, noted
that along with the physicial
improvements comes a sense
of pride for the inhabitants.
"The renovations have
resulted in changes in how the
residents feel about their en-
tire neighborhood," said
Tzadia. "Whereas they once
felt negative about the dowdy
appearance of their communi-
ty, they are now much more
positive."

ing part of the cost with the

ment with the renovations
gives them a much stronger
sense of self-confidence and
self-esteem while at the same
time keeping costs down," said
Ziona Kemelman, Project
Renewal director in Hod
HaSharon.
In all, more than 350 housing
units in Giora and Gil Amal
have been brightened,
repaired or enlarged as a
result of Project Renewal
Assistance.
Gil Amal residents Avi and
Yael Aesoff, who are expec-
ting their third child, first
rented a small apartment and
then purchased a small home
consisting of two rooms plus a
kitchen and bathroom. With
help from Project Renewal,
however, their home has
grown to include three
bedrooms, a dining room and
iving room, and a new kitchen
and bathroom.
"My husband Avi is an in-
staller by trade, and he has
helped a lot with the renova-
tion of our home," said Yael.
"Without Project Renewal and
the assistance offered to
homeowners by architects,
planners and surveyers, we
could never have been able to
improve and enlarge our
home."
Having hosted guests from
Hollywood, (the other com-
munity with which Hod
HaSharon is twinned through
Project Renewal) in the past,
Yael said, "I will be happy for
them to see my new, bigger liv-
ing room and not feel
crowded."
Jacqueline and Benjamin
Levy have lived in an Amidor
apartment for 13 years. When
they moved in as a young mar-
ried couple, the apartment had
two rooms. Now, years later,
with six children to support
and with the assistance oi Pro-
ject Renewal, they have added
two bedrooms and a bathroom.
Since the government has of-
fered the apartment for sale,
the Levys are thinking of
becoming home owners for the
first time in their lives.
"Life for us has been dif-
ficult at times over the years,"
said Jacqueline Levy. "But liv-
ing in the apartment, and be-
ing able with Project
Renewal's help to have it grow
with our family, has been a
great help to us."
Benjamin Levy, praising the
Israel-Diaspora partnership
created through Project
Renewal said, "Project
Renewal has not only made a
difference in how Gil Amal
looks, but also in how it feels.

Purim As Satire: No Laughing Matter

We do not really know, in all
honesty, if the story of Purim
as described in megillat estayr
actually took place. We don't
even know if the heroes of the
Purim story were real people!
There is no hard historical
evidence to date, nor have any
parallel folk tales been found
to corroborate aspects of the
story. But historical accuracy
is secondary to the lasting
significance of Purim.
Reading the Scroll of
Esther, the megillah of Purim,
we can see why this (pseudo-)
historical experience has been
recalled for two thousand
years. It fortified the spirits of
Diaspora Jewry. Whether the
characters in the story were
real historical figures or
allegorical archetypes. Purim
came to be taken as an exam-
ple of Jewish survivalism at its
best. A community of Jews,
living in Persia during the fifth
century BCE, found the means
to save itself from the threat of
genocide. To further the
message of techniques for sur-
vival: The Jews almost lost out
because the agent of this salva-
tion, Queen Esther, had come
so close to being dangerously
assimilated (as opposed to
usefully acculturated) that she
had to be prodded by her uncle
Mordecai into fulfilling her
obligation to her people.
And the Jews were saved.
Just as God saved Israel from
Amalek in the past, so were
the Jews saved again from
Amalek's descendant Hainan,
a member of the Agagite fami-
ly. The festival of Purim
focuses not only on national
salvation ("nation" as people,
not state), but also on the
fickleness of power and the
dangers Jews face whenever
they rely upon gentile authori-
ty for their safety.
All of the concepts are, to be
sure, quite serious. But what
makes Purim unique in the
Jewish holiday cycle is that it
is our only holiday of
unadulterated ioy. The central
text of the festival is the Scroll
of Esther, which is less a work
of history than of satire.
Profoundly biting satire fills

through the streets of
Shushan, crying out: "This is
what is done for the man
whom the king desires to
honor!" after Haman had
already succeeded in getting
the king's acquiescence in his
anti-Mordecai plot the inver-
sion of purpose, when the
stake built for Mordecai's ex-
ecution instead; and finally,
the delicious misunderstan-
ding that results when Haman,
cringing before Esther and
begging her for mercy, is
perceived by the king as trying
to seduce her (" 'Does he
mean,' cried the king, 'to
ravish the queen in my own
palace?' ").
Perhaps this is the genius of
Purim the ability to ge-
nuinely rejoice after a moment
of life-threatening propor-
tions, the will to laugh after a
near-tragedy, the invigorating
sense of a people able to outwit
the demonic forces of history
again and again. Whatever it
is, Purim is joyous with a
clear streak of seriousness
underlying its observance.
In a sense, Purim is also an
apt preparation for the festival
that affirms the right of the
Jewish people to be free i.e.,
Passover, which comes 30 days
later. Purim is on the 14th of
Adar (Adar II, during this
year's leap year), and
Passsover is on the 14th of
Nisan, one month later. The
Shabbat before Purim is called
Shabbat Zakhor (the Sabbath
of Remembrance) to remind us
of the duty to resist the
Haitians of the world, to join
constantly in battle against the

The Rabbinical Corner
DEVOTED TO DISCUSSION OF THEMES AND ISSUES RELEVANT TO JEWISH LIFE. PAST AND PRESENT
The Meaning Of Purim
By RABBI ISAAC VANDER
WALDE
Congregation Anshei
Sholom
During the coming month of
Adar Sheni, the 13th month
which will be observed this
current leap year of our
Hebrew calendar, we shall
celebrate the festival of Purim
on the 14th day of that month,
which this year coincides with
Tuesday, March 25.
The Mishnah and the two
Talmuds the Yerushalmi
and the Babylonian all con-
tain a special tractate on
Purim, a tractate which takes
its name from the first of the
festival's Mitzvoth the
Megillah, the reading of the
Book of Esther.
What do we know about this
particular book? We know that
it is a part of the Biblical canon
as established by our sages. It
is perhaps one of the best
known of all the Biblical books.
Its theme is the first extensive
plot in history to annihilate the
Jewish people by killing them
as a group. Pharaoh in the
Book of Exodus wanted to
drown all the first-born
Hebrew boys, but in the Book
of Esther there is described
the first attempt to plan the
destruction of an entire peo-
ple, young and old, male and
female. Hainan's plan failed,
but it has been tried again and
again. Our age has witnessed
the most riassive attempt to
annihilate the Jewish people.
Hitler almost succeeded.
Whatever the historocity of
the book, whether the main
characters Ahasverus,
Vashti, Esther, Mordecai and
Haman were actually known
individuals (tradition wants us
to believe this) makes no dif-
ference, for the story has sur-
vived in our memory that our
people overcame the onslaught
of their enemies who were
determined to destroy them.
This has been a popular
theme throughout our history.
The Jew; in more than one way
different from his neighbor,
(by his religion in antiquity, by
that and his social position in
the middle ages, by
psychological and other
features today), has been view-
ed and treated as a foreigner
and an alien. Today's attacks
against us are not so much
directed against us as Jews,
but against us as Zionists, the
supporters of the State of
Israel. Anti-Zionism has
become a big business.
Throughout the world we are
the scapegoats for everything
that goes wrong. There are to-
day professional haters, in-
citers to violence and ter-
rorism who calmly set their
plans and murder innocent
people. Our civilized world
thus far has not been willing to
isolate those countries which
openly admit that they train
those individuals and groups
who cause havoc, whenever
and wherever they' strike.
The path of the Jewish peo-
ple has not been smooth. Very
rarely have we enjoyed peace
at ease in our own land and in
our homes. But despite what
Rabbi Isaac Vander Walde
has happened to us, and still
happens to our people, we
have kept alive those ideas and
ideals that will make the entire
world a better place to live in.
Our task is not finished. In
the worlds of the Torah (Ex-
odus 27: 21), we must still offer
up the daily and eternal light.
We must not stop to proclaim
our eternal faith. We must
keep the torch burning, the
spirit of our people strong, un-
til the whole world will accept
the idea that in the name of
G-d we must all be united and
be governed by justice, com-
passion and, above all, by the
desire for a genuine peace.
Purim has been celebrated
and still is being observed in a
religious and secular way. It
calls for a Seudath Purim a
festival meal; it encourages us
to get drunk; yes, it is even a
mitzvah to do so. It promotes
masquerades, asks us to send
gifts mostly sweets to our
friends Mishloah Manot. It
asks us to remember the poor
in our midst, encourages a
Jewish mardi gras spirit. The
evening and the morning of.
Purim, the Megilloth Esther is
being read in our synagogues.
Young and old, men and
women, should listen to its
reading. When Haman's name
is mentioned we twirl gragers
and stamp our feet to drown
out his evil name.
Other holidays may em-
phasize joy and happiness, but
Purim is truly a day of fun.
Terrorist Sideshow
Continued from Page 4
engaged Israeli pilots in an air
battle during which the
Israelis downed 13 MiGs. He
notes that "the press and
Israeli intelligence incorrectly
interpreted increased Syrian
military moves which were
actually final war preparations
as a response to this air bat-
tle. Then, 16 days later, two
terrorists belonging to the
Syrian-controlled Saiqa branch
of the PLO hijacked a train
carrying Soviet Jewish
refugees from Moscow to
Vienna." Prime Minister
Golda Meir flew to Austria
and, like most other Israelis,
was preoccupied with a
hostage drama while the
Syrians and Egyptians finaliz-
ed their war plans. She return-
ed to Israel on Oct. 3 just in
time for the surprise attack
that almost destroyed the
Jewish state. The Syrian diver-
sion had paid off handsomely.
Borden points out that last
December's attacks like
1973's were carried out by
Syrian-backed terrorists.
Italian authorities testify that
they flew to their European
destinations from Damascus.
Borden plays down the Libyan
connection, believing that it is
Syria not the largely irrele-
vant Libya that calls most of
the radical shots in the Middle
East. He believes that Syria
expected Israel to retaliate
against Syrian missile sites in
tiie Bekaa, thereby revealing
the "state-of-the-art" of
Israeli technology vis-a-vis
Soviet air defense systems.
It didn't happen. In Borden's
view, war was averted by two
decisions. "First, whether in-
tended or not, the Reagan Ad-
ministration's early threats of
a military response against
Libya and reports of naval
movements in the Mediterra-
nean diverted public
pressure for a quick response
by Israel." Second, the Israelis
understood the Syrian's
strategy and were determined
not to play into their hands. It
will deal with the Syrian
missile threat at a time of its
choosing, not of Syria's.
Borden believes that both the
U.S. response to Libya (itself
diversionary) and Israel's
restraint were appropriate.
They reduced tension and
averted war.
However, neither Israel's
problem nor Washington's
is over. Both the Soviets and
Syrians still need to test their
air systems against
"competently-handled
Western weapons. Since the
Middle East is the only possi-
ble locale for this test, the
Syrians and Soviets can be ex-
pected to press Israel and the
United States until one oc-
curs." He concludes that it
"would be naive to think that
because terrorism did not
achieve its aims this one time,
Syria and the Soviets will drop
it from their bag of future
options."
Borden's view can be
described as depressing or
even cynical. But a better
word is realistic. In any event,
cynicism about the Soviets and
the Syrians is warranted by 40
years of their Middle East
trouble-making. One can only
hope that this time the cynical
view will be proven overly
pessimistic. Not likely though.

pearances throughout Russia.
He immigrated to Israel in
1965 and was immediately ap-
pointed head Cantor in the
leading Synagogue of Cholon
(a suburb of Tel Aviv). His
talent and fame spread
throughout Israel and he ap-
peared in concerts over the en-
tire country. In 1968 he was
appointed head Cantor of the
Great Rothchild Synagogue in
Tel Aviv.
In 1972, while serving in Tel
Aviv, he was invited to the
U.S. to serve as the head Can-
tor of Congregation Agudas
Achim, Columbus, Ohio, the
greatest congregation in the
Midwest, where he accepted a
six (6) year contract. In 1978
he became the Cantor of Tem-
ple Sinai, Hollywood, Fla.,
where he served a number of
years. Then he became Cantor
of Temple Emeth, Delray
Beach, Fla., until 1985, his last
position.
His outstanding voice and
rare range and depth of feeling
have afforded him the oppor-
tunity of appearing at guest
appearances jn many cities in
the United States and Canada.

Worships at Temple Judea.
"Herb* will be making a
special appearance during
Temple Judea's Purim Ser-

p.m. at St. Catherine's
Cultural Center. In addition to
"Herb," Rabbi Joel Levine and
Cantor Anne Newman will
welcome a unique comedy duo
from Shushan, a visitor from
the East, and the Temple sixth
and seventh graders dressed
as the characters in the Purim
saga people rarely hear about.
For anyone laughing too hard
during the service, the Tem-
ple's Sisterhood will provide
Purim refreshments at the
oneg to relieve any discomfort.
During the brief Shabbat
Service which will precede the
Purim Spiel, Rabbi Joel Levine
will bestow Hebrew names
upon Rhonda and Jennifer
Savel, daughters of Bob and
Rosalee Savel. Since Purim is
a supremely joyous occasion,
the congregation will be able
to share with the Savel family
this wonderful simcha.
During Services, greggers
and pongers will be available,
and it is urged that those par-
ticipating bring protective
clothing in case one is "pong-
ed." These noisemakers will
interrupt the musical cantata
which Cantor Newman has
prepared and which selected
children from the religious
school will present during the
Service.
For those desiring further
information and any
background on Purim Spiels,
call Rabbi Levine at the Tem-
ple office.
The Economy
Continued from Page 1
Histadrut committee has given
Solel Boneh an austerity
blueprint which requires it to
dismiss one-third of its 10,000
employees. There will be 2,200
lay-offs in the next six months
and another 1,000 by
mid-1987. The 3,200 dismissed
employees will get part of
their severance pay in the
form of company bonds.
Solel Boneh was also told to
halve the size of its Board of
Governors, increase its capital,
divest itself of money-losing
units and pledge shares of its
Shikun Ovdim housing com-
pany as additional collateral
for bank loans. Solel Boneh is
the preeminent builder in
Israel and has undertaken ex-
tensive construction projects
abroad.
According to the joint com-
mittee, some of its troubles are
attributed to a policy of laun-
ching projects to provide work
for its various units rather
than on the basis of their
profitability.
The Haifa-based Zim Lines,
which operates one of the
world's largest container
fleets under single ownership,
is $456 million in debt. The
Israel Corporation informed
the Securities Authority
recently that it will transfer its
50 percent holding in the Zim
company to the government
which already holds 40 percent
of the shares. The balance is
held by Histadrut, one of the
founding partners of Zim in
1945.
The Israel Corporation,
which channels overseas
Jewish capital into in-
vestments in Israeli enter-
prises, was founded by Jewish
industrialists and businessmen
from the U.S. and other coun-
tries who attended the
Economic Conference in
Jerusalem in April, 1968. They
acted on the initiative of the
then-Premier Levi Eshkol. Its
initial investment was the ac-
quisition of 50 percent of Zim
Lines shares in 1970. These
are about to revert to the
government which is expected
to seek a buyer as speedily as
possible.
Zim lost $45 million in 1984.
the balance sheet is ex-
pected to show a small profit
or, at least, break even.

Helping People
By NED GOLDBERG,
ACSW, LCSW
A personal view from
the Acting Ekcecutive 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.)
Adolescent Rebellion. It
takes many avenues in the
1980's, from the symbols of
rock-and-roll and drugs, to in-
stances of open warfare bet-
ween parents and teenagers
over concrete issues like driv-
ing, dating, curfews, and
school.
Everyone seems to agree in
principle that adolescence is a
time for people who were once
called children to begin to
think and act for themselves,
take notice of the opposite sex.
and struggle with their own
identity.
When you are the parents of
a child who is in the midst of
adolescence, however, theory
is pushed aside too often by
reality. How late is "too late"
to be out? How can rules be en-
forced when they are ignored?
What's the next step when
disagreements turn to name-
calling, or even punches bet-
ween parent and child?
Any therapist, teacher,
counselor, parent, judge, or
probation officer who claims
that he can relate to every
adolescent and parent, and will
bring peace to every family, is

Arms Sale
Continued from Page 1
ficial when he said that the
Saudis have been pressing the
U.S. to move on the sale. "Our
bilateral relationship with
Saudi Arabia and of equal im-
portance, our credibility with
the rest of the moderate
Arabs, will be advanced by this
sale," he said.
The official would not assess
whether the Israel govern-
ment's decision not to publicly
campaign against the sale
means a lessening of Israeli op-
position. He noted that the
Israel Cabinet said that on
principle it was opposed to
arms sales to Arab countries
that are still at war with
Israel.
The official said that this
would be the last major sale to
the Saudis this year except for
the possible beginning of
delivery in June of AW ACS
sold in 1981.Unless both
Houses of Congress reject the
sale within 50 days, it will go
through. Since the House is ex-
pected to certainly reject it,
the real battle will be in the
Senate, where Sen. Alan
Cranston (D. Cal.) has already
begun collecting signatures for
a resolution of disapproval.
Members of the Senate and
House have long argued that
the Saudis have not been
helpful in the peace process
ana have funded the Palestine
Liberation Organization. This
same argument will be used in
an effort to block delivery of
the AWACS. "Friends don't
always do what we want and
we don't always do what they
want," is the way the official
answered the argument.
Ned Goldberg
not telling the truth. Frequent-
ly adolescents push too hard
and break too many major
family rules for peace to occur.
Sometimes it is the parents
who are too rigid in their
outlook.
But in serious confronta-
tions between parent and
child, the stakes are too high
for a family to ignore the op-
tion of counseling as a way to
resolve conflict. Serious rifts
that start in a family when a
teenager pushes too hard can
lead to short-term problems
like truancy from home or
school, or a night in the deten-
tion center, or to long-term
problems of lifelong unresolv-
ed anger.
Family counseling in situa-
tions of parent-child conflict
offers two unique phenomena
frequently overlooked: 1) the
ability to talk about a problem
in a setting that is more
neutral than a home or school,
and 2) the redefinition of many
of the problems which are seen
only as moral issues.
Parents frequently form an
opinion on sex, drugs, or
academic achievement only
from a moral standpoint,
which adolescents frequently
challenge. Professional
counselors are somewhat more
successful in getting an adoles-
cent to consider the same
issues if they are approached
from a standpoint of their own
physical or mental health, or in
the case of academic achieve-
ment, their overall self-esteem
and earning potential.
Finally, it is sometimes the
professional counselor who
frequently tells a permissive
parent that he or she needs
better controls for the child,
that the child is severely abus-
ing drugs, in trouble at school,
or breaking laws in the com-
munity. Parents who reject
counseling because they are
afraid of being labelled "poor
parent" are frequently sur-
prised to find that counselors
agree with them more than
they disagree. Often a
counselor's major role with a
parent is to develop within
that person effective tools for
parenting.

Leo Frank Receives Posthumous Pardon
ATLANTA (JTA) Leo
Frank, the Atlanta Jew lynch-
ed in 1915 after being con-
victed of the murder of a
13-year-old girl who worked in
the factory where he was a
superintendent, received a
posthumous pardon recently
from the Georgia Board of
Pardons and Paroles.
The pardon, signed by all
five members of the board
chaired by Wayne Snow, Jr.,
came over two years after the
board head refused such an ex-
oneration because, it then said,
"it is impossible to decide con-
clusively the guilt or innocence
of Frank."
The board had re-opened the
case after the late Alonzo
Mann, then 85, came forward
to say that, as an office boy of
14 in the pencil factory where
the murder of Mary Phagan
took place, he had seen the
janitor carry her body to the
basement.
The parole board claimed in
December, 1983 that Mann's
statement did not provide any
new evidence. Major American
Jewish organizations-including
the American Jewish Commit-
tee, the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, and the
National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council
expressed shock at the board's
refusal of the posthumous
pardon.
The board, in granting the
pardon, gave an account of the
entire case, concluding that
finding "conclusive evidence
proving beyond any dobt that
Frank was innocent" was a
standard of proof "almost im-
possible to satisfy" especially
lor "a 70-year-old case." The
board's statement continued:
"Without attempting to ad-
dress the question of guilt or
innocence and in recognition of
the state's failure to protect
the person of Leo M. Frank
and thereby preserve his op-
portunity for continued legal
appeal of his conviction, and in
recognition of the state's
failure to bring his killers to
justice," the board hereby
grants Frank a pardon.
The account of the case
given by the board in its
statements begins with the
murder of Phagan on April 26,
1913, which "shocked and
outraged" Georgia residents.
Frank, it said, was charged
with the muder and convicted
August 25, 1913 and sentenc-
ed to death.
The case came before Gover-
nor John Slaton after unsuc-
cessful appeals. "The Gover-
nor was under enormous
pressure. Many wanted Frank
to hang and the emotions of
some were fired by prejudice
about Frank being Jewish and
a factory superintendent from
the north."
Slaton commuted Frank's
death sentence to life im-
prisonment on June 21, 1915.
"On the night of August 16,
1915, a group of armed men
took Frank by force from the
state prison at Milledgeville,
transported him to Cobb Coun-
ty and early the next morning
lynched him," the board's
statement continued.
What the board statement
did not relate was that after
the lynching, armed mobs
roamed the streets of Atlanta,
forcing Jewish business firms
to close their doors. About
1,500 of Georgia's Jewish
population of 43,000 fled, and
others were targets of a
boycott.
The reactions to the events
the trial where mobs
screamed anti-Semitic slogans
through the windows and to
the lynching were so intense
that they catalyzed the
establishment of the Anti-
Defamation League. The
events also spawned a revival
of the Ku Klux Klan. The 1983
refusal of the Board of Par-
dons and Paroles to grant
Frank a posthumous parole
revived the traumatic
memories and bitterness of the
Jews who had lived through
the events.
The posthumous pardon of
Frank was "welcomed with a
sense of gratitude" by Gerald
Cohen, president of the Atlan-
ta Jewish Federation, at a
news conference later in the
afternoon, as a "historic
decision."
Calling the chapter of
history of the Frank case and
its aftermath one "that has
caused much pain and sorrow
for over 60 years," Cohen said
the board's decision removed
"this tragic stigma from the
great State of Georgia, indeed,
from the collective conscience
of the nation.
"We are confident that, at
long last, these wounds of
doubt and distrust will now be
healed."

Purim As Satire

evil powers that beset all life.
The Shabbat before Pesah is
called Shabbat HaGadol, and
looks to the time of the
Messiah, when there will no
longer be any need for such
vigilant self-defense.
Finally, let's turn to the
significance of Purim as a
religious holiday, and consider
its psychological function. All
the other holy days focus on
matters of spiritual
earnestness eg., repentance
(Rosh Hashanah), gratitude
(Sukkot), dedication to
religious freedom (Hanukkah),
fredom (Passover), Torah
(Shavuot), tragic memories
(Tisha b'Av), etc. Only Purim
Allows us to engage in
wholehearted rejoicing of a
type that helps us to defuse the
pain and suffering of our
troubled history.
Purim lets us emote with
unabashed pleasure at the im-
age of the enemies of our peo-
ple getting their iust desserts.
On Purim we feel the satisfac-
tion of vengeance. And yet, it
is for that very reason that
Purim is a lesser holiday. Our
very human pleasure in the
vengeance of Purim makes it
somewhat less divine than
other festivals. Perhaps that is
why we do not say tne halkl
(the prayers of praise) on
Purim. Perhaps that is why the
Scroll of Esther is the only
book in the Bible without even
one mention of the name of
God!
Judaism acknowledges,
through the observance of
Purim, that the urge for
retribution is a normal desire
especially for a people that
has known more than its share
of the cruel vicissitudes of
history. But, normal as the
urge may be, it must be no
more that a fantasy to be in-
dulged through the noise,
tumult, costumes, drinking
and play acting that are part of
this holiday celebration. It is
not a spirit to be sanctified and
it must not become a program
for action. Purim thus helps us
cope with the burdens of our
history and, at the same time,
rejoice in our survival.

policy has the practical advan-
. tage of relieving Israel of the
burdens of administering
municipal affairs in Arab
townships and villages and the
political benefit of encouraging
moderates.
"Al-Masri was ahead of his
time," one Israeli offical said,
adding that the late Mayor
could have proven there is an
alternative to the PLO. But his
murder sent a chill of fear
through the politically active
Arab community. Bassel
Can'an, once considered for
Mayor of Nablus, thanks
heaven he didn't take the job.
He blames the Israel govern-
ment and media for Al-Masri's
death.
Hafez Tukan, Al-Masri's
deputy, was elected Mayor of
Nablus by the Town Council
last week at its first session
since the assassination. Israeli
officials seemed heartened.
They saw the prompt replace-
ment of the slain mayor by a
former aide as a sign that Al-
Masri's moderate positions are
strongly entrenched in Nablus.
But Tukan, also a member of
a prominent family, is not con-
sidered as fit for the job as his
predecessor. He shies away
from reporters and appears
nervous. According to some
reports, shortly after Al-Masri
was gunned down outside the
town hall, Tukan fled to his
home and locked himself inside
until the funeral the following
day.
Two weeks after the
assassination, Nablus appears
back to normal. Gates closed
for the six days of mourning
re-opened. On a sidewalk in
the center of town the
municipality erected a small
monument to Al-Masri his
picture decked in a wreath of
flowers. But few passers-by
stop to look at it. The impres-
sion of Israeli observers is that
the Palestinian community ad-
justs very quickly to the loss of
one of its most popular
leaders.

Talisman: 'Do Something About
What You Are Partaking Of9
Before discussing what he
called a "litany of important
items," Mark Talisman, direc-
tor of Washington Action for
CJF, spoke of a recent
meeting among 30 of "our
friends and brothers in the
Soviet Union" which was
broken up by the KGB. "Many
of the people in the room were
taken to countryside locations
and had the stuffing beat out
of them," he said, implying a
connection between pre-war
Germany and the Soviet Union
today.
"I have a feeling of deja vu
that may seem overblown to
you," said Talisman, who is
also presently serving as the
vice-chairman of the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Council.
"I feel like we're in 1939 in
regard to the question of
Soviet Jews. This is 1939 from
my standpoint because we're
fooling around as the paint is
peeling from the 'Free Soviet
Jewry' signs on our
synagogues, as if the issue is
just cocktail conversation. It is
the worst period of time for
Soviet Jews right at the mo-
ment. Anyone who believes
differently is nuts."
Referring to the American
apathy of a generation ago as
discussed in David Wyman's
The Abandonment of the Jews,
Talisman declared, "An enor-
mous engine must be tooled up
from now until Summit II,
and he exhorted those present
and those "who have friends
who are Jewish and aren't do-
ing a damn thing as if it were
1939" to "do no less than ex-
tend yourselves fully."
Turning to domestic pro-
blems Talisman talked about
the effect of budget cuts man-
dates by the Gramm-Rudman-
Hollings legislation.
"We have a problem collec-
tively," he admitted. "Private
contributions are not coming
forward in the manner or the
size that they should, and at
the same time the government
is closing its doors on a federal
level for domestic programs in
the name of a deficit which is
enormous."
Talisman pointed out that
the first cuts, which took ef-
fect automatically on March 1
and amounted to $11 billion,
included $500 million "out of
the hide of Federations across
the country for which there is
no known pushka to make up
the difference."
Simply stated by Talisman
the problem is that "we aren't
raising enough money and all
your friends who are in your
Rolodex at the office are not in
our computers at Federation."
Emphasizing that the
across-the-board Gramm Rud-
man Cuts will affect both
foreign and domestic pro-
frams, Talisman said, "Aunt
adie in our community cannot
be put in competition with
Aunt Sophie in Jerusalem
They both need our help." He
implored the audience to in-
vestigate the social service
Mark Talisman
delivery situation in their
home communities, saying.
"People who are sleeping in
the streets of your community
happen to be Jewish. And peo-
ple who are hungry in your
streets happen to be Jewish.
They can't even say the Motzi
because they have nothing to
say it over."
Recalling that his bubbe used
to keep a pushka on her mantle
and served as a one-woman
budget and allocation commit-
tee, Talisman said that today
"Seven percent of us are rais-
ing 95 percent of the
resources, and the budget
resources federally,

this recent act of violence
"gives grist to the mill of those
who say we cannot deal with
the Arabs," he stated firmly,
"Israel, I believe, has to con-
tinue to seek an alternative to
the PLO and achieve some
kind of reconciliation on its
western border. We have to
encourage the Israelis and the
American government to br-
ing non-PLO Palestinians into
some kind of process Peace
is not without risk, but we
must pursue it."
With regard to recent press
reports that suggest Israeli
dissatisfaction with progress
in normalizing relations with
Egypt, Dine insisted, "Camp
David is still the cornerstone
of American foreign policy in
the eastern Mediterranean;
Camp David is our paradigm,
our model. None of us should
be advocating a cut in foreign
aid to Egypt, and all of us
should be encouraging the
Egyptians to engage
themselves on a normal basis
with the Israelis. A cold peace
is better than no peace."
On the subject of terrorism,
Dine said, "Israel has shown it
means business when dealing
with terrorists; hopefully, the
United States, which has been
accused of being too strong on
rhetoric but too weak on ac-
tion, will join the league with
Israel. Our lawmakers must
know we support a policy of
dealing with terrorism
through strength, not
accommodations.''
Dine added that a letter con-
taining the signatures of 44
U.S. Senators was sent to At-
torney General Ed Meese re-
questing that he review
documentation gathered by
the State Department which
suggests the feasibility of in-
dicting Yassir Arafat for the
1973 murder of American
civilians.
All of these issues, Dine
noted, art issues on which the
American Jewish electorate
can have an impact. Calling
the 99th Congress the "most
pro-Israel ever," Dine said,
"Our objective remains a pro-
Israel Congress, and hopefully
you all will be involved in one
of the many important races
which will have a profound ef-
fect on our community and our
nation."
Dine ended his remarks with
an emphatic call for Jewish
participation in American
political life.
"We need all of you today
and tomorrow. We need you
involved in the AIPAC Policy
Conference in April, and your
continued involvement with
UJA and with members of
Congress is critical."
"Go forth," Dine exhorted.
"Carry our flag on Capitol
Hill. You are the new genera-
tion and the new leadership.
You are on the front lines at
home and here in Washington.
Now use what a democracy
gives you and speak out for
what you know is good for
yourself, good for the Jewish
community, and good for the
United States.".

domestically, privately and
publically are going down. And
we're letting it happen
through inaction. It is as Eli
Weisel has said: 'These are the
things that happen when good
people do nothing.' "
After citing another stag-
gering statistic which in-
dicates that by October 1,28
32 percent of domestic pro-
gramming that impacts on
Federations and the people
they serve will be cut
automatically, Talisman en-
couraged the young leaders to
help their congressmen solve
the problem.
"The members of Congress
don't know what to do. If you
really care, you have to tell
your representative that
you're prepared to help him
cut the budget without
slaughtering people in the pro-
cess. Your congressmen need
help," Talisman urged, "they
don't need yelling at."
Talisman then turned to the
subject of H.J. Res. 2, a piece
of legislation coming up for
discussion in Congress that
would allow for silent prayer in
public schools.
Talisman recalled being ex-
cused as a child from
classrooms for the period of
time necessary for those who
said their prayers. "And then I
was brought back," he
remembered, "as that strange
kid of another faith to reap-
pear with my colleagues to try
and be a classmate again."
Talisman's remarks were
punctuated throughout by
praises and challenges issued
to the gathering of young
leaders.
"You must understand what
a mitzvah you are for the
Jewish people." he declared.
"We are effective. Tom Dine
and I. and everybody else who
tries as a Jewish civil servant
to do our best here in
Washington, only because
you're willing to extend
yourselves in an otherwise
very busy life with many other
commitments."
Yet he added that the
Washington conference is only
a first step. "What you are
here to do today is not simply
to partake," he admonished,
"but to go back home and do
something about what you are
partaking of."
Talisman closed with an allu-
sion to the Haftarah reading
for Yom Kippur. Quoting
Isaiah, he said, "You shall
build up the foundations of
many generations and those
that shall be of thee shall be
like a spring of water whose
waters fail not."

ding to Lovinger, when the
Turkish Republic of Northern
Cyprus was established in
1983.
The only country to
recognize the new secessionist
state was Turkey, and the U.S.
has been among those apply-
ing diplomatic pressure to
dissuade other Moslem states
from following suit.
But Lovinger said that
Greek officials had told him of
concern that if Athens were to
establish full diplomatic rela-
tions with Israel, Arab coun-
tries would retaliate by
recognizing the Turkish
republic in Cyprus. This, Lov-
inger told the JTA, was a chief
source of Athens' refusal to
change its policy.
Lovinger suggested that his
government's policy on Israel
might change if Papandreou
moves closer to the center of
the political spectrum in
Greece, as he predicts he will
over the next couple of years.
Fear of its isolation in a region
that is becoming increasingly
Islamic in character, Lovinger
said, will naturally push
Greece and Israel closer
together.
In the meantime, Greece has
extended an official invitation
to Israel's Tourism Minister,
Avraham Sharir, to visit
Greece, Kimche announced
during his visit there. Sharir
would be the first Israeli
Minister to be hosted by
Greece in more than 20 years.
But formal recognition by
Greece remains contingent on
its longstanding conditions
that appear to have little
chance of being met any time
soon: the total withdrawal of
Israeli troops from territory
occupied in 1967, and the com-
mencement to find a just and
permanent solution to the Mid-
dle East problem, including
the Palestinian issue.
On his 18th year as leader of
the Greek Jewish community,
Lovinger said that irrespective
of disappointment on the
recognition issue, Jews in
Greece who now number
some 6,000, over half of them
residing in Athens had few
grievances as Jews.
The appearance of a
swastika "here and there," or
an occasional rabid article
from fringe group
newspapers, are a fact of life,
but no more, no less, than in
other countries where Jews
reside, he noted.
"Where is there not anti-
Semitism?" asked Lovinger, a
native of Hungary who made
his way to Greece after fleeing
a feared Nazi takeover in 1933.
The now-retired pharmacist
said he was eventually taken
by the Nazis in 1944, but
escaped after 20 hours, fleeing
on a journey that took him to
Aleppo, Beirut and Israel,
where he stayed for 15
months.
Lovinger, who makes fre-
quent trips to Israel as well as
to the U.S., where his son and
his family reside, said that the
commitment of the Greek
Jewish community to Israel
and Zionism did not make the
country's Jews especially
vulnerable to charges of "dual
loyalty."
"We are married with
Greece. But our mother is
Israel. And you must not
forget your mother," Lovinger
