Super Sunday Was Truly Magic
Super Sunday '86 lived up to
its magical billing by raising
$412,630 for the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County/United Jewish Appeal
campaign. Close to 400
volunteers, representing every
sector of the Jewish communi-
ty and including local
dignitaries and celebrities,
placed approximately 15,000
calls from the Hyatt Palm
Beaches, and the results of this
massive annual reach out ef-
fort pleased everyone.
"We were blessed this year
with a hard-working commit-
tee and a huge contingent of
dedicated volunteers,' said
Super Sunday co-chair Stacey
"Everyone present really
made the magic happen," add-
ed co-chair Mark Levy. "With
the follow-up mailing taking
place right now, we hope to
come close to our established
goal of raising $500,000."
Arnold L. Lampert, general
campaign chairman, added,
"We reached out to almost
5,000 new prospects, and
although at press time we
haven't tabulated exactly how
many new gifts were received,
the number of first-time Super
Sunday contributors is far
greater this year than in the
past." Lampert added that
over $112,000 was raised by
the Women's Division, which
Carol Greenbaum, campaign
vice-president of Women's
Division, called a "record-
breaking achievement and a
significant increase over last
year," and she praised the
diligent efforts of the
Women's Division Super Sun-
day co-chairs Angela Gallic-
chio and Joan Tochner.
Mark Levy emphasized
another important aspect of
reaching out to new members
of the community by saying,
"Super Sunday is the first con-
tact many of these newcomers
have with Federation and its

Campaign Award
Alan L. Shulman (left), past president of the Jewish Federa-
tion and national vice chairman for the United Jewish Ap-
peal, presents the Pinchas Sapir Award to Myron J. Nickman,
immediate past president and former campaign chairman for
the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County/United Jewish
Appeal campaign. The Sapir Award is presented annually by
the UJA to communities which have demonstrated outstan-
ding fund-raising achievement on all levels, including new
gifts development, leadership development, cash collection,
innovative campaign programming, trends in funds allocated
for overseas needs, and outstanding achievement in major
gifts. The Award was for the 1984 Federation/UJA campaign
when Nickman served as general chairman.

Papal Visit to Rome Synagogue
Welcomed by Jewish Community
ROME (JTA) The Jewish community has warmly welcomed the Vatican's
announcement that Pope John Paul II will visit Rome's main synagogue next
But while this is viewed as an "historic gesture" which may well be the first
Papal visit ever to a Jewish house of worship, the feeling among Jewish leaders is
that it will be up to the Pontiff whether the occasion is merely "symbolic" or con-
tributes substantively to Catholic-Jewish relations.
"It could be a fantastic step forward," said Tullia Zevi, president of the Union
of Italian Jewish Communities, "or it could be a perpetuation of ambiguities."
She was referring to certain fundamental issues that remain unresolved after
more than 20 years of Vatican-Jewish dialogue that began after Vatican Council
II in 1965.
The chief Vatican spokesman. Joaquin Navarro Vallis, announced at a press
conference that the Pope's visit would take place on the afternoon of April 13. He
said it would be the first such visit in living memory, though he could not be cer-
tain it would be an historic precedent.
The Jewish community expressed its "satisfaction at the decision of Pope John
Paul II to visit the synagogue of Rome," adding that "this will mark an impor-
tant step in the direction of an ever more rewarding dialogue."
The Rome synagogue was the scene of a traumatic event in October, 1982
when worshippers were attacked by Arab terrorists with machineguns and
grenades. A two-year-old boy, Stefano Tache, was killed and 34 persons were
More than a year earlier on February 9, 1981, the spiritual leader of the
synagogue, Rome's Chief Kabbi Elio Toaff, met with the Pope at a church adja-
cent to the old Jewish ghetto, about 100 yeards from the synagogue. From that
time on, a Papal visit to the synagogue itself seemed more and more in the realm
of possibility, awaiting only the appropriate "conditions."

Women's Division
Dorothy Greenbaum To Chair K'Tubat Luncheon
Friday. March 28, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 3
Mollie Fitterman, president
of the Women's Division of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, and campaign
vice-president Carol Green-
baum have announced that
Dorothy Greenbaum will chair
the Project Renewal/KTubat
Luncheon on Thursday, April
17 at 11 a.m. at the Palm
Beach home of Mrs. Eugene J.
The guest speaker at the lun-
cheon event, which recognizes
a $2,500 minimum gift to the
Women's Division Project
Renewal campaign, payable
over five years, will be Marva
Perrin, the Jewish Federa-
tion's Project Renewal
"I accepted the honor of
chairing the K'Tubat Lun-
cheon because I feel very
strongly about the concept and
implementation of Project
Renewal," said Mrs. Green-
baum. "We encourage all
women to share in the excite-
ment of knowing exactly
where our funds are going and
seeing the tangible results."
Having visited Hod
HaSharon, Palm Beach
County's Project Renewal
twin community, Mrs. Green-
baum said, "I have witnessed
the amazing progress in terms
of facilities and programming,
and I have also seen areas that
could still benefit from the im-
pact of Project Renewal."
Mrs. Greenbaum, who has
previously served as a board
member and secretary of
Women's Divison, explained
that the focal point of the lun-
cheon will be the K'Tubat
Emunim document, a
beautifully decorated "com-
mitment of trust" received by
those women who support Pro-
ject Renewal with a $2,500
The K'Tubat Emunim reads
as follows: "I, through the
Women's Division of United
Jewish Appeal, accept our
covenant of faithfulness with
the people of Israel. May all
Jews be blessed with the op-
portunity to live in freedom
with dignity and realize the
dream of individual
"Although Project Renewal
was designed to be a five year
partnership aligning an Israeli
neighborhood in need with a
particular Diaspora Jewish
Community," said Project
Renewal chairperson Marva
Perrin, "we have found that
our obligation to the people of
Hod HaSharon will be ongo-
ing." Mrs. Perrin pointed out
that above and beyond the
bright new facilities, such as
the recently-dedicated Jeanne
and Irwin Levy Day Care
Center, the Corky and Eugene
J. Ribakoff Senior Center and
Morse Geriatric Receives Superior Rating
The Joseph L. Morse
Geriatric Center of the Jewish
Home for the Aged of Palm
Beach County has received a
Superior Rating from the Of-
fice of Licensure and Certifica-
tion of the Florida Department
of Health and Rehabilitative
Services (HRS).
A team of HRS officials
spent several days carefully
reviewing records and inter-
viewing staff of every depart-
ment of the Center to deter-
mine the level and standard of
care provided to residents of
the 120-bed facility. Areas
such as administration and
management, physician and
nursing services, phar-
maceutical services, construc-
tion standards and fire and
security practices were in-
vestigated by the HRS
The infrequently awarded
Superior Rating has been
given only to exceptional
homes for the aged in the
State of Florida. Upon receiv-
ing notice of the rating, Mr. E.
Drew Gackenheimer, ex-
ecutive director of the Center
stated, "We are very pleased
with the HRS report and fin-
dings. Our trustees, volunteers
and staff take tremendous
pride in our program and con-
tinually strive for excellence.
However, we must not become
complacent as there are areas
of our operation which require
further attention and
"The rating indicates that
the Morse Geriatric Center is
one of the finest facilities of its
kind in Florida. Our goal,
however, is to become the
finest geriatric center in the
country. We must continue to
seek excellence in every aspect
of our program of care," con-
cluded Gackenheimer.
Due to the tremendous de-
mand for long-term nursing
care as well as the continued
growth in the nunmber of
elderly residing in the area,
the Morse Geriatric Center ap-
plied for and received approval
from the State to expand its
current facility to include an
additional 160 beds. The
Center will also establish a
30-bed short term rehabilita-
tion unit and an adult day care
center. A major capital cam-
paign is now being planned by
the Center to raise the
necessary funds to implement
its expansion program.
The Morse Geriatric Center,
a non-sectarian 120-bed long
term care facility, is located at
4847 Fred Gladstone Drive in
West Palm Beach and is a
beneficiary agency of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County.
the Michael Burrows Early
Childhood Enrichment Center,
both now under construction,
our community's commitment
to Project Renewal has helped
institute a wide variety of
social, recreational and educa-
tional programs which have
restored the residents' sense
of dignity and self-respect and
given them control over their
"Project Renewal's success
is largely due to the decision-
making power cultivated by
the Hod HaSharon residents,'
added Mrs. Perrin, who is cur-
rently a member of the Na-
tional UJA Women's Division
board, a vice president of the
Jewish Federation and the
Jewish Community Day
School, and a member of the
Federation Campaign Cabinet.
Dorothy Greenbaum stress-
ed the importance of a
woman's involvement in Pro-
ject Renewal. "Many women
feel that their commitment to
Project Renewal can be made
jointly through their spouse's
involvement," said Mrs.
Greenbaum. "We like to stress
that nothing equals the rewar-
ding feeling of a woman ex-
pressing her individual com-
mitment by doing something
special for the community on
her own."

Terrorists Kill One Israeli,
Wound Three in Cairo attack
tian terrorists fatally shot an
Israeli woman and wounded
three other Israelis in Cairo
last week. The victims were
members of the Israel Em-
bassy staff.
The gunmen opened fire on
their car as it left the parking
lot of the International Trade
Fair where the four had been
working at the Israel pavilion.
Premier Shimon Peres ex-
pressed "deep shock" over the
incident but vowed that ter-
rorists will not stop Israel's
search for peace.
The slain woman was iden-
tified as Ettie Tal-Or, wife of
an Embassy official. The
wounded were flown to Israel
shortly after the shooting and
were reported to be in stable
condition at the Sheba Govern-
ment Hospital in Tel
Hashomer. They were iden-
tified as Esther Yefet, David
Droya and Uri Siev.
According to reports from
Cairo, the killers were driving
in two cars when they ambush-
ed the Israelis. Police cordon-
ed off the area and set up
roadblocks but as of yet no ar-
rests have been made.
The Israel pavilion was
reopened under tightened
security. Attendance was
reported brisk. It had been
visited on the day of the attack
by Israel's Minister of
Tourism, Avraham Sharir,
who was on an official visit as a
guest of the Egyptian Tourism
Ministry. There were no in-
dications that he had been an
intended target.
The attack was the third
against Israeli diplomatic of-
ficials in the Egyptian capital
and the second to result in a
fatality. Last August, Albert
Atrakchi, an administrative at-
tache at the Embassy, was kill-
ed by unknown gunmen while
driving through the Maadi sec-
tion of Cairo. His killers were
never found.
In June, 1984, Zvi Kedar,
also an administrative official,
was wounded in the shoulder
and hand. The assailants
escaped. A little-known group
calling itself "Egypt's Revolu-
tion" claimed credit for all
three attacks.
The attack came at a time
when the Israeli and Egyptian
governments are attempting
to resolve serious issues which
have caused tension and
strained relations between the
two countries since Egypt
recalled its Ambassador from
Tel Aviv in 1982 in protest
against Israel's invasion of
A high-level Israeli delega-
tion is presently in Cairo for
the latest in a long series of
talks aimed at settling the
Taba border dispute and ad-
vancing normal relations.
Israelis, moreover, are still
upset over the incident at Ras
Burka in eastern Sinai last Oc-
tober when an Egyptian
soldier, Suleiman Khater, sud-
denly opened fire on a group of
Israeli tourists, killing seven,
four of them children.
Although Khater was
sentenced to life imprisonment
and subsequently hanged
himself, many Israelis are still
not satisfied with the report of

the shooting and the delay in

Where's The
It is certaily no surprise that a $354 million missile sale to
Saudi Arabia has been proposed to Congress. This Administra-
tion like the Carter Administration that preceded it seems
to believe that arming the Saudis enhances U.S. interests in the
Middle East. That is why it has permitted Saudi Arabia to
become the single largest purchaser of U.S. defense goods and
services in the world receiving 25 percent of all U.S. arms
sales. Since 1950. Saudi Arabia has received $50 billion in
military assistance (another $20 billion is yet to be delivered). No
other country in the world has received more than $12 billion
over that same period.
Thanks to the United States, the Saudis already have the best
supplied armed forces that money can buy.
But "thanks to the United States" is about the last thing the
Saudis have provided in return for all this largesse. In 1981,
when the Reagan Administration provided Riyadh with five
AWACS surveillance planes, President Reagan assured the
Senate that the Saudis would reciprocate by providing "substan-
tial assistance" toward "the peaceful resolotion" of the Arab-
Israeli conflict. However, during the past five years, the Saudis
have done quite the opposite. They have opposed the Camp David
peace process, the 1982 Reagan peace plan, the 1983
U.S.-backed Lebanon-Israel pact, U.S. action against Libya's
Khadafy, and the current Peres-Hussein peace initiative. They
have supported the PLO (financially and diplomatically), Syrian
domination of Lebanon, and the Arab world's continuing
ostracism of Egypt. They continue to lead the Arab boycott of
Israel and are among the leading opponents of any Arab moves
toward accommodation with Israel.
In short, you can predict Saudi Arabia's position on almost any
issue involving the Middle East by looking at the U.S. position. If
we're for it, they're against it. And vice versa.
The question begs itself. Why would the Administration even
consider providing Saudi Arabia with another 2,600 missiles? It
might respond that the Saudis need the additional weaponry to
defend themselves against Iran or against internal subversion.
But the Saudis already have more than enough missiles to deal
with any Iranian threat. They have more than 30 Sidewinder
missiles for every Iranian combat aircraft. The proposed sale
would increase that ratio from 30:1 to 47:1. However, all the
anti-aircraft missiles in the world wouldn't protect the Saudis
from the human wave infantry attacks that the Iranians have
employed so effectively against Iraq. As for the internal threat,
that is an argument against the sale rather than for it. If Saudi
Arabia is on, the verge of falling to radicals or fanatics,
Sidewinders and Stingers won't save it. Remember the Shah?
He had a U.S.-supplied arsenal too. Ayatollah Khomeini has en-
joyed using it.
The Administration should face the facts. There is no
legitimate rationale for the proposed arms sale. It won't lead the
Saudis to support U.S. policy goals and it won't protect them
from any of the threats that may jeopardize the Riyadh regime's
survival. As for appeasing the Saudis because they have the oil
and we don't (an argument that is rarely made but is always just
beneath the surface), that argument lies buried in the wreckage
that was OPEC. 1986 is not 1974. The oil weapon is not very in-
timidating anymore or, at least, it shouldn't be.
The Administration should reconsider. It has an arms sale but
it has no rationale for one. It just won't work.

In an interview with the
Paris daily Le Matin (Feb. 28),
Prime Minister Shimon Peres
said that he hoped that Presi-
dent Hosni Mubarak "over
comes his current problems."
Asked if he would send
Mubarak a message of sup-
port. Peres implied that he
doubted such a message would
do Mubarak much good. But he
added that he had confidence
that "Mubarak will win this
battle for Egypt and for
If anything, Peres was
understating Israel's support
for the embattled Mubarak. In
the eight years since the Camp
David peace treaty went into
effect, it has become all too
easy for us to take it for
granted. But Peres doesn't
and we shouldn't.
On March 8, the Jerusalem
Post's Hirsh Goodman
reported on the opening of a
new road that runs 120 miles
along the Israel-Egypt border
to Eilat, Israel's Red Sea port.
The road "traverses a
wonderland of dunes and ca-
nyons, desert vistas, and great
open plains all ablaze with a
profusion of colors and hues
that leave one mesmerized,
almost overpowered by the
beauty of it all."
The most beautiful part,
however, has more to do with
politics than with topograpy.
Nine miles from the point
where the road begins, the
barbed wire that separates
Egypt and Israel disappears.
Goodman writes: "You are left
with white, undulating, virgin
dunes on either side, punc-
tuated only by an occasional
reminder that you are driving
along a border dividing two
countries at uneasy peace.
There are some places where
there is no fence at all the
border being delineated by
numbered concrete blocks
and others where the fence is
so low that with an effortless
hop you could be in Egypt."
Goodman says that "with
the watch-towers and fences
behind you, you have a sense of
vastness. Suddenly Israel
doesn't feel small anymore."
Goodman paints a wonderful
picture of an Egyptian-Israeli
border that is like the
U.S.-Canadian one, a border of
peace without barbed wire
or sentry posts. Of course, that
is only part of the picture. The
Egyptians continue to keep
their ambassador far from the
Tel Aviv embassy. Normaliza-
tion remains at a standstill.
There is the ugly and frighten-
ing matter of the Sinai
murders of seven Israeli
tourists who were gunned
down last October at Ras Bur-
q<- and the most recent inci-
dent in Cairo. Still, the new
Eilat road (called Kveesh
HaShalom or Road of Peace)
holds out the tantalizing vision
of all the miracles which can be
achieved if the peace treaty
survives and the peace
It is that vision which keeps
Shimon Peres from criticizing
Mubarak and which leads him
to make concessions over
Taba. He has not forgotten
that the Yom Kippur War
which Mubarak's predecessor
Anwar Sadat initiated prior to
embarking on his mission of
peace cost Israel 3,000
young lives. Those who con-
tend that the Camp David
peace treaty is a mere "piece
President Mubarak
of paper" would do well to
note that if such a piece of
paper had been signed in 1971
rather than in 1978. 3,000
Israelis (and how many Egyp-
tians?) would have lived rather
than been killed in the desert
sands. The Nobel peace prize
which was presented to Sadat
and then-Prime Minister
Menachem Begin in 1980 was
well-earned. Fortunately,
neither of their successors
wants to return it.
That is why Peres will do
everything he can to assist
Mubarak. But that isn't much.
Egypt's problems are, primari-
ly, economic. The country's
population is soaring while na-
tional income declines. Plum-
meting oil prices not only
reduce the value of Egypt'-
petroleum but also cut into
Suez Canal revenues. (There
are fewer oil tankers paying to
use the waterway.) The three
million Egyptians living in the
Gulf States are sending back
less and less money because of
the oil depression. In recent
months that source of foreign
capital has started to dry up
and Egypt has already lost as
much as $4 billion. On top of all
that, Mubarak has to confront
Islamic fundamentalism which
has even greater appeal during
hard times.
In short, things don't look
good for Mubarak. That is why
Peres and the Reagan Ad-
ministration are worried. They
understand that the "frozen
peace" is far from ideal but
that it is preferable to the
alternatives that might be of-
fered by any of Mubarak's
potential successors. They also
know that if Mubarak goes,
Egypt's close relationship with
Washington would probably go
with him. This is one situation
that is worth worrying about.
Near East Report
AIPAC Policy Conference
Set for April 6-8
WASHIGTON-Over 1,500
activists from all 50 states are
expected as the nation's pro-
Israel political community
gathers April 6-8 Washington
for the American Israel Public
Affairs Committee's 27th An-
nual Policy Conference. Con-
gressmen, Senators, and Con-
gressional candidates, Gover-
nors and local officials, and
leading Administration
policymakers will join the
delegates, who will convene
during the week in which the
Administration is expected to
formally announce its inten-
tion to sell Saudi Arabia $350
million of missiles.
While discussing Campaign
'86, arms sales to Israel's
enemies, and foreign aid, the
delegates will celebrate the
"people who make the dif-
ference": the volunteer who
helps elect a pro-Israel
legislator, the college student
who responds to anti-Israel
campaigns on the campus, the
letter writer who brings the
pro-Israel point of view to the
attention of a public official.
"The pro-Israel political
community is based in the
cities and towns of this coun-
try," said Thomas A. Dine, ex-
ecutive director of the
Washington-based organiza-
tion. "It is their work that
gives us our credibility in
Washington, and it is they
whom we honor."
Senators Edward Kennedy
(D., Mass.) and John Heinz (R.,
Penn.), who, along with four
colleagues, led the Senate
fight against the $1.9-billion
Jordan arms sale this winter,
will address the Conference's
Monday night banquet. Over
one hundred members of Con-
gress attended last year's
As testimony to the pro-
Israel community's increasing
importance in Congressional
races, Rep. Tony Coelno (D.,
Calif.), chairman of the
Democratic Congressional
Campaign Committee, the of-
ficial campaign arm of House
Democrats, will address the
election-year conference Sun-
day afternoon. He will be join-
ed by Congresswoman Lynn
Martin (R., 111.), a rising star in
the house Republican leader-
ship; the two Representatives
will provide a Congressional
viewpoint to balance the views
of the senior Administration
official who will precede them.
"To be effective, support for
Israel must come from all
segments of the community
and all philosophical view-
points," said Dine. "Thus,
Monday afternoon we will
focus on building coalitions
with diverse groups." The
coalition-building session will
feature Reps. Bill Richardson
(D., N.M.), whose district is
three-fifths Hispanic and In-
dian; Vin Weber (R., Minn.), a
pro-Israel leader among the
New Right; and former stu-
dent militant Mickey Leland
(D., Tex.), chairman of the
Congressional Black Caucus.
Rep. Larry Smith (D., Fla.),
a leader of the House fight
against the Jordan arms sale,
will address the delegates on
Tuesday. He is a leading
member of the House Commit-
tee on Foreign Affairs and its
subcommittee on Europe and
the Middle East.
The delegates will discuss
with experts the important
issues that will affect
U.S.-Israel relations over the
coming year: the effects of
Gramm-Rudman-Hollings on
foreign aid in general and aid
to Israel in particular; arms
sales to "moderate" Arab
countries; Israel and the

A Promise For The Future
The Endowment Fund of the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County
Endowment Director
As Jews we have always
responded to the ever chang-
ing needs of our people .. .
wherever we lived. It was not
too many years ago that only a
handful of Jews brought this
tradition of response to Palm
Beach County in the earliest
days of what is now the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County, Inc. Ongoing needs
are met by the Federation's
annual campaign. But when
unexpected needs arise, other
sources are required. For-
tunately, we have a reserve
resource the Endowment
Fund which enables us to:
Respond quickly to
Provide seed money for
new programs
Assist in capital projects
The Endowment Fund,
created by men and women
who had both forsight and
compassion, can be our com-
munity's agent for change.
Donors to the Endowment
Fund, past and present, have
shown they were there for
others to insure the continuity
of a vibrant Jewish communi-
ty. Will you be there?
You can make gifts to the
Endowment Fund in many
Real Estate
Insurance policies
If you make a gift now, it
will result in a current income
tax deduction and will remove
the value of the gift for estate
tax purposes.
If the contribution includes
stocks, bonds, or appreciated
real estate the sale of which
would ordinarily result in long-
term capital gains there
David Simon, at the microphone, represented the Central
Area of Palm Beach County in the Regional Spelling Bee.
Day School Spellers Excel
The Jewish Community Day
School of Palm Beach County
recently held a series of spell-
ing bees. The winner of the up-
per division spelling bee, 8th
grader David Simon, went to
win the Central Area of the
Palm Beach County Spelling
Bee, which qualified him to
compete in the Regional Spell-
ing Bee last week at the Helen
Wilkes Hotel, where David
competed against the top
spellers in several South and
Central Florida counties.
In the fourth/fifth grade
competition the winners were

tax on the capital gain even
though your income tax deduc-
tion is on the full value of the
stock. (If your contribution is
appreciated real estate, you
may be subject to a 30 percent
limitation.) In either case, you
may carry forward your unus-
ed charitable deductions for up
to five additional years.
If you contribute cash now,
in many cases you may take an
income tax deduction for the
charitable gift up to 50 percent
of your "contribution base," in
the year of your gift.
A bequest to the Endowment
Fund may result in substantial
savings in your estate taxes.
Since estate taxes increase
with the size of your taxable
estate, a bequest to the En-
dowment Fund can place your
estate in a lower tax bracket.
Estate taxes can be saved if
you establish a charitable life-
income trust with the Endow-
ment Fund that will provide in-
come for your life and that of
your spouse. The creation of
such a trust will create a cur-
rent income tax deduction.
The advantage of giving long-
term capital gains securities to
fund the trust at full value
without payment of capital
gains will be provided. Most
important, the removal of a
substantial portion of the gift
from your taxable estate will

Friday, March 28, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 9
The plight of Soviet Jews
was recently spotlighted when
the Soviets finally delivered
Anatoly Shcharansky to
freedom in the West. But for
, \ ,ry Shcharansky there are
thousands of lesser known
refuseniks and prisoners of
conscience waiting for their
day to emigrate.
In 1979 Soviet authorities
released over 50,000 Jews
more than ever before or
since. It appeared that the
Soviet Union was executing its
duties under the Helsinki Ac-
cords of 1975 and finally
recognizing the human rights
of those who chose to
But a series of international
events demonstrated that the
Soviets still consider the
refuseniks a political issue as
the emigration of Soviet Jews
dropped off dramatically. In
1984, only 896 people were
allowed to leave. Last year,
1,140 were permitted to
emigrate, but this figure is on-
ly two percent of the 1979
The numbers themselves are
distressing, but the suffering
of those wishing to leave is
devastating. A recent report
by the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry cites over 150
known cases of search, arrest,
and imprisonment of Hebrew
teachers and Jewish activists
from September 1984 to
August 1985.
Soviet Jews certainly run a
risk when they apply to
emigrate. Refuseniks and their
families are often targeted for
harassment. Common tactics
include repeated questioning
by the authorities, dismissal
from jobs or demotions to
menial tasks, or expulsion
from universities and profes-
sional institutions.
In some cases, academic or
professional credentials have
been revoked harsh punish-

A large contingent of college
students is an integral part of
an AIPAC policy conference

their contribution will be
recognized with two sessions

will also inaugurate the
Leadership Development Ad-
visory Council, its new pro-
gram for recent graduates, at
the Policy Conference.
The delegates will par-
ticipate in workshops designed
to increase their effectiveness
in political activism: legislation

ment for someone only desir-
ing to practice his religion. It
certainly would make one
think twice before asking the
government for permission to
leave for religious purposes.
I have joined other members
of Congress in participating in
the 1986 Congressional Call to
Conscience, a program that
works to draw attention to the
plight of Soviet Jews by coor-
dinating Congressional Record
statements emphasizing our
concern for those who can
neither practice their religion
freely nor emigrate.
Programs such as the 1986
Congressional Call to Cons-
cience keep the plight of Soviet
Jews on the forefront in hopes
it can help improve their
chances for freedom. With the
Soviet Union's ever-increasing
interest in international opi-
nion and the media, programs
like this one may play an im-
portant role in the unfolding
drama of world events. At
least we can hope.

A Torah, special and essen-
tial to any temple or
synagogue, takes on extra im-
portance at the soon-to-be-
opened Temple Beth Torah.
The new Temple, located in
western Palm Beach County,
is scheduled to open with its
dedication ceremonies May 4.
The highlight of the
ceremonies will be the sacred
Torah for which the Temple is
named. This particular Torah
has special significance as it
has survived the Holocaust to
be placed in Temple Beth
Torah. Originally confiscated
from one of the Jewish com-
munities destroyed by Hitler,
the Torah was placed in a
museum in Prague,
Czechoslovakia by Hitler as a
reminder of his regime.
Now that the Torah is again
in the hands of its people, it
will be honorably placed in
Temple Beth Torah during the
dedication ceremonies.
"The dedication ceremony is
being planned to involve the
entire community, not just the
Jews who will be worshipping
here," commented Rabbi
Steven Westman, leader for
the new congregation.
It is the people of the com-
munity who have been pitching
in to make Temple Beth Torah
a reality, according to the Rab-
bi. Other churches in the area
have been donating and pro-
viding their churches for a
meeting place for the con-
gregation until their perma-
nent Temple is finished. For
this reason, the congregation
at Temple Beth Torah is in-
viting people of all faiths in the
western communities to take
part in the dedication
The Temple will be located
at 900 Big Blue Trace in
Rabbinic Panel At JCDS
Mr. Jack Rosenbaum's 8th grade Jewish studies class at the
Jewish Community Day School recently heard from a panel of
three local rabbis, each representing a different branch of
Judaism. They gave brief explanations on their personal and
denominational views on G-d, Moses and Israel and then
answered questions from the students on subjects ranging
from prayer to the Messiah. The rabbis on the panel were (left
to right) Rabbi Mark Dratch (Orthodox) from the Boca Raton
Synagogue, Rabbi Howard Shapiro (Reform) from Temple
Israel, and Rabbi Elliott Skiddel (Reconstructionist) from
Temple Ramat Shalom.
Bar Mitzvah
Jason Feuer, son of Laura
and Dr. Paul Feuer, will be
called to the Torah as a bar
mitzvah on Saturday, April 19,
at Temple Beth El in West
Palm Beach.
Jason is a seventh-grade stu-
dent at the Jewish Community
Day School and his interests
include tennis, horseback
riding, swimming and ping
He will share the joy of this
occasion with his sisters
Nicole, Carrie and Danielle; his
great-grandmother Gussie
Feuer; and his grandparents
Ceil Feuer, Jerry Feuer,
Rosalie Keene and Milton
Senfeld. Many relatives and
friends from New York, In-
Jason Feuer
diana, Colorado and Florida
will also celebrate the day.
Max and Bess Kahn have
been named as the honorees
for the Temple Beth El Israel
Bond Testimonial Brunch on
April 13, for their dedication
to their community, their
Jeople and the State of
srael. They richly deserve
the prestigious Tower of
David Award from the State
of Israel.

Terrorist Attack In Cairo
Continued from Page 3
providing medical attention to
the victims.
Mubarak himself is in a
delicate position. Two davs of
rioting in Cairo by disaffected
police recruits, though quelled,
have raised questions about
the stability of his regime.
_ There was no immediate of-
ficial reaction by the Israel
government to the attack jn
Cairo, but Peres, addressing
veteran Labor Party members
here the next day, said he was
sure Mubarak would do
everything possible to find the
killers and brine them to
justice. He said the real vic-
tims of Arab terrorism are the
Arab people and their leaders,
who fear for their lives.
"It is not surprising that
there are terrorists and
organizations that want to ig-
nite a large fire in the middle
East by terrorism, by murder,
by violence. They will not dic-
tate to us our efforts on behalf
of peace. We hope to attain
peace not because they op-
pose it but despite their op-
position, despite the acts of
murder," Peres said.
Area Deaths
He added that President
Mubarak "must, like us, cut
off the arm of violence which is
trying to threaten the hope of
pepce in our region. I am cer-
tain, and I hope, that the
government of Egypt will take
all necessary measusres to find
the guilty, to bring them to
trial, will take the necessary
measures so that such acts will
not recur in the future. This is
its obligation and its respon-
sibility," Peres said.
The U.S. State Department
expressed confidence that the
Egyptian government would
find and arrest those responsi
ble for the attack on the four
Israelis. "We strongly deplore
this repugnant act and offer
our condolences to the family
of the woman who was killed,"
State Department deputy
spokesman Charles Redman
said. "We wish speedy
recovery for those wounded in
the attack. We are fully confi-
dent of the Egyptian deter-
mination to bring those behind
the attack to justice."

To those readers who used
to live in the Greater New
York area, I want to discuss
"A Bintel Brief." If you
remember the Jewish Daily
Forward and you have read
this marvelous column, raise
your hand!
For more than half a century
the Bintel Brief flourished. Its
popularity and mass appeal
showed that truth was
stranger than fiction. Letters
arrived by the thousands and
readers could easily relate to
the many problems printed.
The daily column offered
advice and opinion to which
immigrants could easily relate.
So what kind of letters
were they? For 65 years people
wrote about working
conditions, love affairs,
deserting husbands,
disrespectful children and
intermarriage. The Bintel
Brief, in fact, became a
chronology of the way Jewish
newcomers settled into the
Goldeneh Medina.
Although some Jews pushed
on to the South, West, or New
England, the majority lived in
the ghetto of the lower East

Well, by sending an
anonymous letter to the Bintel

unburden his heart and receive
a practical, viable answer.

my doctor left me." The

The desire to Americanize
was so great that letters to the
Bintel Brief became the only
outlet for many who were
troubled. These letters gave
insight into the lives of im-
migrant Jews their hopes,
their dreams, and the actual
reality. The Bintel Brief may
be gone but it will never be
forgotten. Grandpas and
Grandmas will tell their
children and hopefully the
storv will continue. The Bintel
Brief is part of our past and
mirrors an age of innocence. It
is a portrait of the way things
used to be.
What can Ann Landers tell
us about? And Dear Abby
knows from borsht when it
comes to the nitty gritty of im-
migrant life. Me, I yearn for
the days when morals were
necessary, values essential,
and truth was vital. It's all
part of the past that will never
return. That makes it impor-
tant for us to remember, to
quote, and to recognize the
wisdom and justice so lovingly
dispensed by the Bintel Brief.

and the people that they at-

serious concern to Jewish

some young Jews swept up in-

At JFCS some former cult

Racist Party in France Wins Almost 10 Percent
of the National Vote
PARIS (JTA) The ultra-rightwing National Front
Party, whose leader, Jean Marie Le Pen, has been denounc-
ed as a racist and an anti-Semite by Jewish community
leaders, elbowed its way into Parliament in national elec-
tions that left the winning center-right coalition four votes
short of the majority they need to form a government.
Le Pen, whose party won 35 seats in the 577-seat Na-
tional Assembly and nearly 10 percent of the total vote
compared to one percent in the last elections promptly
declared he would not support a new center-right govern-
ment unless he is part of it. The possibility looms that he
well may be.
Recently, a court sentenced Le Pen to a symbolic fine
after finding him guilty of racist remarks when he insulted
four Jewish reporters who had been critical of his party's
activities. In an interview with the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency last year, Le Pen denied he was anti-Jewish. He ad-
mitted being anti-Arab and favors expelling immigrant
guest workers, many of whom are of North African origin.
Herut Tries To Pick
Up The Pieces
zhak Shamir and David Levy,
bitter rivals for leadership of
Herut, met in the Foreign
Minister's office alone last
week, their first meeting since
the Herut convention broke up
in chaos. It was at Shamir's
The meeting was unan-
nounced and Levy, who is
Minister of Housing, told
reporters before entering
Shamir's office that it was up
to the two of them to find ways
to heal the rift in Herut. He ad-
mitted, however, that he was
not bringing any formula of his
own. Aides to Levy said he
was prepared to listen to
whatever ideas Shamir might
It was learned later that
Shamir extended an invitation
to Levy which the latter pro-
mptly accepted. Herut sources
said earlier that the rival
camps remained at odds over a
proposal by Minister of Com-
merce Ariel Sharon, also a con-
tender for Herut leadership.
Sharon has suggested a
three-way power-snaring ar-
rangement by which Shamir
would be elected chairman of
Herut, Levy chairman of its
Executive Committee and
Sharon chairman of the Cen-
tral Committee.
Shamir, denied endorsement
at the aborted convention, in-
sists that he hold both the par-
ty and Executive Committee
chairmanships, a tradition
established by former Premier
Menachem Begin who held
both positions during his many
years as undisputed leader of
to search for identity. Others
join cults, especially con-
sciousness raising cults, out of
a need to learn, experiment, or
experience a spiritual high.
Perhaps the most compelling
reason cited is the inviting
nature of the people. A person
who feels lonely, depressed,
shy or desperately in need of
friends fine s a cult to be a pro-
tective circ e of companions. In
a world where friendly people
might otherwise be hard to
come by, a smile, handshake
and a hug goes a long way in
making someone feel wanted.
There is no guaranteed way
to keep people from joining a
cult, nor are there any
guaranteed ways to "rescue" a
cult member. The spiritual
void that is being filled by
membership in a particular
cult is a bitter pill to swallow
for any non-approving relative
of a cult member. And even
when people are forcibly
deprogrammed from a cult
membership, there remains no
sure-fire way to reestablish
family allegiance or former
religious identification.
Perhaps one of the most ef-
fective ways to inhibit young
people from joining cults is to
make them feel comfortable
with, and knowledgeable of,
Judaism to begin with. Ob-
viously this is no easy task,
especially with young people
who are in a stage of life where
it is normal to question values
and experiment with different
Jewish organizations that
are designed for teenagers and
young adults, such as temple
youth groups, Hillels, Zionist
organizations and fraternal
orders such as younger
chapters of B'nai B'rith, have
to be particularly sensitive to
the importance of being open
to all young Jews and must be
as flexible as possible so as not
to turn away individuals who
seem to have some initial dif-
ficulty "fitting in."

Bernard Malamud
Dead at 71
Bernard Malamud, the
Pulitzer Prize-winning
American Jewish author, died
in his Manhattan apartment
last week of what police
described as natural causes.
He was 71 years old.
Malamud was the author of
eight novels and four collec-
tions of short stories, which,
critics noted, showed the in-
fluence of both the 19th cen-
tury Russian masters of fiction
and the traditional Jewish
story tellers. Permeating
many of his works was the con-
cept that human salvation
came from adherence to a
strict code of personal morali-
ty in the face of life's over-
whelming despair and
His best-known and most
controversial novel, "The Fix-
er" (1966), was the story of a
handyman, Yakov Bok, falsely
accused by Czarist officials of a
ritual murder. The story drew
very loosely on the notorious
Mendel Beilis case of
1911-1913, which ended in
Beilis' acquittal.
In Malamud's book, Bok
emerges from the Kafaesque
labyrinth of the degrading
Czarist penal system with his
integrity intact. He declares at
the end of the novel that there
is "no such thing as an un-
political man, especially a

The victim of breast cancer is not always
the older woman. Or the woman with a
history of breast cancer in her family.
Or the woman who "doesn't take care
of herself'
The truth is, one in every eleven
women will develop breast cancer during
her lifetime.
In the next fifteen minutes, three
women in this country will have developed
the disease.
And one more woman will die from it.
If you're a woman, there's only one intel-

breast cancer.
Early detection.
By setting up a monthly routine of
Breast Self Examination, you can often
detect any abnormality leading to breast
cancer in its earliest, most curable stages.
Unfortunately, not all forms of breast
cancer can be easily discovered in a typical
manual exam.
That's why we're asking women past
the age of 35 to set up one more lifesaving

In a simple one-hour visit, you'll be
shown a film and given thorough instruc-

You'll also receive a private, profes-

munity locally, overseas and in Israel.
We could not have put together such a successful project
without the generous assistance of committee chairmen, Federa-
tion staff, teen volunteers, organizations throughout Palm
Beach County, and you, our super Super Sunday volunteers who
made the calls.
We sincerely thank you and we'll see you all again next

Project Renewal, in which
Jewish communities join with
Israel to develop distressed
neighborhoods, has produced
"local patriotism," according
to Minister of Labor and
Welfare Moshe Kateav. The
Minister was speaking at the
International Conference on
Urban Revitalization which
has just ended in Jerusalem.
A delegate from the World
Bank volunteered his
organization's services to help
share Israel's experience in ur-
ban rehabilitation with coun-
tries around the world.
Some 150 urban experts
from 30 countries joined their
Israeli colleagues for four days
of discussions to compare data
on Israel's Project Renewal
and similar projects elsewhere.
Prof. Daniel Elazar, presi-
dent of the Jerusalem Center
for Public Affairs which
organized the conference, said
that the Israeli experts were
"greatly encouraged" by the
praise they received from the
foreign participants.
The project, started in 1977
by then-Premier Menachem
Begin, involves diaspora com-
munities donating funds and
know-how to improve educa-
tion, social services and living
conditions in rundown areas.
The Israeli government mat-
ches the diaspora funds dollar
for dollar.
The project has affected
more than half a million people
in 84 neighborhoods, accor-
ding to Yosef Korazim of the
Jewish Agency's planning
department for Project
Although Dr. Arza
Chuchman of Haifa's Technion
noted that the project has
lasted much longer than anti-
poverty efforts in other coun-
tries, where similar programs
ended because they failed to
produce immediate results, the
project is now at a critical
Korazim noted that fundrais-
ing has decreased due to other
concerns such as Ethiopian im-
migration and the war in
Lebanon. Israel's economic
situation has also called for a
cut-back in government
welfare spending. Yet much of
the work started is still
Dr. Naomi Carmon of the
department of architecture
and planning at the Technion,
reporting on a comprehensive
study of Project Renewal, said
that the project's main aims of
improving social and living
conditions have been
significantly advanced.
The greatest success is in
educational programs for
children and adults, with many
women deciding to go out to
work after particiapting in the
Project's programs. Very lit-
tle, however, has been ac-
complished in the actual area

The Torah That Would Not Die
Women's Division Endowment
By Susan Birnbaum
March 1944, as the Nazis over-
ran Hungary, an enraged Nazi
soldier, finding nobody home
at the Lisker Synagogue,
threw the Torah he found into
the waters of the Bodrog
River, which flowed through
the synagogue's backyard.
Hidden from view, a 17-year-
old Christian boy, Istvan
Fenye, watched in disgust, and
as the Nazi departed, the boy
stole down to the river and
rescued the Torah.
On Sunday, March 16, 42
years to the day the Torah was
desecrated, it was rededicated
in a profoundly moving
ceremony at the new Lisker
Synagogue in Manhattan.
Before an unanticipatedly
large crowd, the 400-year-old
Torah was brought out in a
new white velvet cover and
marched into the street under
a chuppah, the canopy under
which Jewish weddings are
Livened by music and dance,
the procession then returned
into the sanctuary to inscribe
the names of victims of the
Holocaust who left no pro-
geny, and of loved ones of
those present at the ceremony.
A special parchment addition
was provided at the end of the
Torah scroll upon which a
scribe penned the names
Thus came full cycle an
episode of death and rebirth in
a Jewish community, a small
yet greatly significant gesture
in the ongoing tale of broken
and demolished Jewish con-
gregations that refuse to let
the memory die. More than
that, the act of rededication
signaled yet one more effort of
those who suffered the Nazi
scourge to let the world know
"We are here."
The Fenye boy, an orphan
who was taken into the Lisker
rebbe's household years before
the incident and who retained
his Christian beliefs, also
found his way into permanent
remembrance as his name, too,
was inscribed in the Torah
But this wasn't the only
righteous Gentile who saved
the Torah and the rebbe's
family. This is also a
"Wallenberg story," for the
family of the rebbe, Solomon
Friedlander, who had been
hiding in Budapest with Chris-
tian papers, were left to fate
once more as Budapest was
bombed. And the tall Swede
named Raoul Wallenberg pro-
vided them with papers and
gave them and the valise they
carried with the Torah inside
just as Fenye had brought it
to them under great peril
himself shelter in the
Swedish Embassy, where they
remained for the 10 days till
In a ceremony of remem-
brance and testimony
preceding the taking out of the
Torah, tribute was paid to
those who perished and to the
power of the Torah itself,
whose importane to the Jewish
people did not die in the
Holocaust's flames.
Rabbi Samuel Ashkenazie of
Kew Gardens, Queens, and
brother-in-law of the Lisker
rebbe, reminded those
gathered that "when these
monstrous people, the beasts
of humanity, the Germans,
came into Hungary, and they
were sure that they'd be able
to extinguish the Jewish na-
tion, they were sure the Torah
would not exist any more ..
today we can come together
and proclaim to the world 'We
are here to stay.' The Torah is
our life and the Torah is with
us ... There is no greater joy,
no greater privilege than to
tell the world 'We saved the
Torah, and we are here with
Keynote speaker Jack
Eisner, founder of the

that he was only one of 30

In a deeply felt testimony, he
recalled his grandmother's

presence, in hiding, as she was
thrown down the stairs by the

letters (that) will float in
Heaven to come back to us to
teach our grandchildren what
Judaism is all about."
The ceremony was sweeten-
ed by the voice of Cantor
Chaskele Ritter, who sang in
Yiddish as well as Hebrew, and
was enhanced by a candle-
lighting ceremony by
The Lisker shul itself is a
testimony to survival. It is a
beautiful melange of artifacts
brought to the East Side san-
tuary, the only Hasidic shtiebel
on the Upper East Side, from
emptied and vandalized
synagogues in The Bronx
where the Lisker shul stood
from 1949 to 1977. Mismatch-
ed chandeliers, menorahs,
clocks and even the doors to
the Ark where the Torahs are
kept were all brought to the
new Manhattan location nine
years ago as The Bronx emp-
tied of its once heavily concen-
trated Jewish population.
Rebbetzin Judith
Friedlander, a gracious
woman, eagerly talked about
the synagogue and the
275-year-old dynasty of
Lisker, from the Hungarian ci-
ty which goes by the name of
Olaszliszka and in which the
synagogue still stands, unus-
ed, surrounded by the old
Jewish cemetery.
Her father, the rebbe who
brought the Torah to America
with them in 1949, was in-
terested in Bikor Holim, the
visiting of the sick. It was this
interest, she said,that brought
them to the Upper East Side,
the locale for so many of New
York's hospitals. It is to this
seemingly unusual location for
a Hassidic shtiebel that the
memories of Hungary and,
more recently, of The Bronx,
have come.

Soviet Jewish Refusenik Sentenced to a Three-
Year Prison Term
WASHINGTON (JTA) Soviet Jewish refusenik
Vladimir Lifshitz was convicted and sentenced recently to
three years in prison for anti-Soviet slander, according to
the Union of Councils for Soviet Jews.
Lifshitz was arrested on Jan. 8 on his way to work. He
was charged with anti-Soviet slander, under Article 190-1
of the criminal code of the Russian Soviet Federated
Socialist Republic. These charges were based on
statements Lifshitz made in letters he wrote describing his
current situation in the Soviet Union.
The letters, which Lifshitz admits he wrote, were illegal-
ly confiscated from the mail by Soviet officials, as well as
copies of other personal correspondence seized from the
Lifhsitz apartment in Leningrad during a search carried
out prior to his arrest.
Lifshitz was the first Soviet Jew arrested and tried since
the Geneva summit last November. He has been repeatedly
refused permission to emigrate since 1981 on grounds that
it is "against the interests of the State."
An electrical engineer and a mathematician, Lifshitz
worked as head of the division of economic forecasting at
the All-Union Scientific Research Institute for the jewelry
industry in Leningrad until 1981, when he had to resign
because of his application to emigrate to Israel.

Group Fights Intolerance In Israeli Society
Golda Meir Educational
Association (GMEA). which
was established in Israel in
1978 to support the values of
democracy, cultural and
religious pluralism, and
humanistic Zionism, is increas-
ing its efforts to combat grow-
ing trends of intolerance and
polarization in Irsaeli society.
"We have the largest pro-
gram in Israel today against
extremism and Kahanism,"
David Freilich, executive
director of the American
Friends of the GMEA, said in
an interview with the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency. "We are
fighting Kahanism," Freilich
said, referring to the ideology
of Rabbi Meir Kahane, which
advocates the ouster of all
Arabs from Israel "as part of
our overall fight against ex-
tremism from the right as
well as from the left and our
task of strengthening Israel's
basic values of an open,
democratic and pluralistic
Boris Krasny, director
general of GMEA in Israel,
who was also interviewed by
the JTA, pointed out that re-
cent surveys and public opi-
nion polls in Israel have shown
a dramatic increase for
Kahane and his racist views
among Israeli youth.
"In our meetings with
Israeli youngsters we found
out that many of them do not
know the meaning of the word
democracy. Although we fight
the phenomenon of Kahanism,
our fight is against the general
drift of Israeli society to the
margins right and left. Our
primary goal is to teach and
explain to the young genera-
tion of Israelis the meaning
and essence of democracy,"
Krasny said.
He noted that while in
previous years the GMEA ap-
proached adults, the emphasis
in the last three years is to
reach mostly the youth.
"There are about 80,000
students in the 11th and 12th
grades in Israel's high schools,
and we will reach about 25,000
of them this year," Krasny
He said that the new pro-
gram of the GMEA includes
six seminars on democracy,
pluralism and humanistic
Zionism in which the high
school students participate, in
cooperation with their schools,
during a two-and-a-half month
period. He said that Israel
Ministry of Education has
recommended that all high-
schools in Israel use the
GMEA program.
According to Freilich and
Krasny, thousands of adults
and youths, including Arabs,
have participated each year in
GMEA seminars, workshops
and leadership training ses-
sions. They said that promi-
nent authors, such as Amos Oz
and A.B. Yehoshua, academics
and scientists, as well as local
and national leaders, volunteer
to conduct discussions on
issues such as the nature of
Israeli society and democracy,
the state of the economy, and
the prospects for peace bet-
ween Israel and its neighbors.
"We view it as our duty to
reach out to the Israeli-Arab
community as well, with a
view to ending the
predominance of the PLO-
inclined Communist Party and
to provide Arab citizens with a
positive channel of expression
within the mainstream of
Israeli life," Freilich said. He
added, however, that the
numbers of Arabs exposed to
the program is still limited and
that most of the effort is con-
ducted among Jews. Freilich
and Krasny expressed the
view that Israel's democracy is
in danger. They said that the
combination of economic in-
stability and the continued
unresolved issues of the West
Bank and Gaza with its
demographic and security im-
plications poses a danger to
Israeli democracy. They said
the GMEA stresses "the im-
portance of the principle of
territorial compromise
within the framework of a
peace settlement guaranteeing
Israel security."
The GMEA also teaches the
importance of religious
pluralism within Israel "to
counter the growing domina-
tion of secular life by the ex-
treme Orthodox, and seeks
ways to promote integration
between the Sephardic and
Ashkenazic communities in
Israel," Freilich and Krasky
Both said that the future of
Israel and the kind of society it
is going to be will be determin-
ed in the next few years. "We
believe that we can win and
that we can retain the fun-
damental values on which
Israel was established. But in
order to win, we need the help
and the support of the Jewish
people, especially the support
of American Jewry," they
