Jewish community officials in
Chicago are expressing sur-
prise at the stunning political
upset achieved in the Illinois
Democratic Party primary
elections by two followers of
ultra-conservative and ex-
tremist Lyndon LaRouche, Jr.
But these officials suggest
that the victories by Mark
Fairchild for the Democratic
nomination for Lieutenant
Governor and Janice Hart as
the party's nomination for
Secretary of State were not in-
dications of support for
LaRouche and the views of his
political organization.
Instead, they see the victory
as the result of a combination
of factors, including the low
voter turnout about 25 per-
cent of the state's 1.6 million
registered voters due to
rainy weather, growing voter
apathy in the political process,
and a rejection of the
Democratic Party's candidates
running against the LaRouche
Democratic Party officials
swiftly condemned the
statewide results in Illinois.

In Washington, Party
spokesman Terry Michael said,
"It is shocking that followers
of Lyndon LaRouche have
been able to deceive voters in
the Illinois primary. LaRouche
represents a kook fringe of
American politics."
But two officials in Chicago
Jonathan Levine of the
American Jewish Committee
and Michael Kotzin of the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency in
separate telephone interviews
from Chicago that the elec-
tions do not indicate new-
found support for LaRouche.
They attributed it to voter
apathy, and lack of media
coverage of the two elected
"There was so much (media)
preoccupation with the elec-
tions of Aldermen in southern
minority wards that virtually
all other elections were not
covered at all and certainly
not the primaries for Lt.
Governor and Secretary of
State," said Levine, the AJC's
regional representative there.
But, according to Levine,
the "sense here, it seems to
me, is that this was not a vote
in favor of extremism." He
suggested, as did political com-
mentators and political pun-
dits, that the vote was a rejec-
tion of Fairchild's and Hart's
opponents more than it was an
indication of support for the
LaRouche followers.

Israel Strikes Palestinian Targets In Lebanon
TEL AVIV (JTA) A Katyusha rocket exploded in a school yard in Kiryat
Shemona last week, slightly injuring three students and a teacher. Shortly after-
wards, Israel Air Force jets bombed two targets in Sidon, south Lebanon, said to
be installations of the Palestine Liberation Organization. Beirut radio said six
Israelis planes carried out the raid, which lasted 15 minutes and caused heavy
The 122 mm. rocket struck the school yard at 9:30 a.m. local time. Two of the
injured were hit by flying glass and the two others were hurt in a stampede to air
raid shelters. Order was quickly restored and within an hour after the attack
youngsters were kicking a football over and around the crater left by the rocket
in the schoolyard.
Although casualties were minor, they were the first casualties in Kiryat
Shemona since Israel invaded Lebanon in June, 1982 with Premier Menachem
Begin's assurance that rockets will never again fall in Galilee. The town has been
hit by rockets numerous times since then but no one was hurt until this recent
An Israel Defense Force spokesman said the targets for the retaliatory air raid
were the Sidon headquarters of El Fatah, the PLO's terrorist branch, located in
the Miamia refugee camp and a tented PLO training area south of the camp. All
Israeli aircraft returned safely to their bases, the spokesman said.
Justice Minister Moshe
Nissim said last week that
mounting evidence that
former United Nations
Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim has a Nazi past will
require Israel "to consider
carefully" whether it is possi-
ble to have any relations with
him in the future.
Waldheim is the conser-
vative Peoples Party can-
didate for the Presidency of
Austria in elections to be held
May 5. Austrian and Yugosla-
vian newspapers and the
World Jewish Congress have
made public in recent weeks
wartime and post-war
documents indicating that
Waldheim was involved in the
murder and torture of partisan
fighters while a lieutenant at-
tached to the German General
Staff in the Balkans during
World War II.
He also may have been im-
plicated in the deportation of
Greek Jews from Salonika.
Nissim was the first ranking
Israeli official to comment on
the Waldheim affair. He said
that Israel would have to
weigh its position if, for exam-
ple, the question of

Eastpointe Dinner
On Thursday, March 20, 175 people gathered
at the Eastpointe Country Club for a dinner in
support of the 1986 Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County/United Jewish Appeal cam-
paign. Chaired by Alvin and Fran Newman,
the Eastpointe Dinner featured a presentation
by Elaine Winik, past president of the United
Jewish Appeal of Greater New York. The $600
minimum commitment event, which posted a
50 percent increase in attendance over last
year's dinner, helped raise over $220,000 for
the Federation/UJA campaign.

A Tribute To
Benjamin S. Hornstein
A cocktail reception was held recently at the home of Dr.

stein on behalf of the Jewish Community Day School of Palm
Beach County. In attendance were many of Mr. Hornstein's
friends as well as past and present leadership of the school. All
were there to honor the man who played a major role in bringing
the Day School to its present position of prominence within the
Jewish Community. Coverage of the Jewish Community Day
School BarMitzvah celebration will appear in the April 11 issue.

Jewish Agency Board
Approves 1986-87 Budget
Friday, April 4, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 3
A $381 million budget for
1986-87 was approved by the
Jewish Agency board of gover-
nors during its February
meeting in New York.
Subject to final approval by
the Jewish Agency Assembly
on June 22-26 in Jerusalem,
the new budget includes $50
million to be disbursed over
two years to the Rural Settle-
ment Department to assist set-
tlements currently in financial
distress and a $20 million ex-
penditure as the initial sum for
a three-year housing program
for newly-arrived immigrants.
Other major budget items
$52.5 million for Immigra-
tion and Absorption. The
decrease from $88 million in
last year's budget was at-
tributed to the $40 million cost
in 1985-86 for initial absorp-
tion of Ethiopian olim.
A reserve fund of $15
million budgeted for Immigra-
tion and Absorption to meet
needs in the event of an unex-
pected influx of olim.
$52 million for Youth
Aliyah to help both Israeli and
immigrant youngsters to
develop their potential.
$11.75 million for Jewish
education, including scholar-
ship programs, leadership
training and aid to educational
$44 million for higher
education and $16 million for
vocational training.
In addition to the regular
budget, the board of governors
approved $48 million for Pro-
ject Renewal in order to con-
tinue rehabilitating distressed
neighborhoods in Israel
through the "twinning" pro-
cess of matching Israeli
neighborhoods with Diaspora
communities for both financial
and person-to-person support.
Committee chairmen also
reported at the meeting. Julius
Weinstein, chairman of the
Youth Aliyah Committee,
that many settlements are ex-
periencing hardships due to ac-
cumulated debt, inflation and
international competition in
agricultural markets. She said
that the Rural Settlement
Department, whose budget in-
creased only $5 million over
last year, is restructuring
itself to meet the crisis. A
special research and develop-
ment program is being
created, and there is a shift in
emphasis away from
agriculture in general to pro-
grams more suitable to current
economic circumstances.
The Jewish Agency's special
allocation of $50 million to the
Rural Settlement Department
noted that the 1986-87 budget is designed to help break the
will help service approximate-
ly 18,500 young people. He
also noted that the department
is now serving 2,500 Ethiopian
olim and expects to serve an
additional 300 Ethiopians this
coming year. He emphasized
the special attention required
by the Ethiopian youngsters,
and expressed concern that
the general economic situation
in Israel may adversely affect
some Youth Aliyah programs.

of the local community and
chairperson of the Rural Set-
tlement Committee, reported

along with a system of

Holocaust Survivors
The Southeastern Florida Holocaust Memorial Center,
Inc. is pleased to announce an important project which we
are undertaking. A photography professor from the
University of Miami will be taking portraits of Survivors
from the Holocaust The pictures will help provide the
world with a clear picture of who these people are today.
Each portrait will become part of the Survivor's oral
history record if given and may be used in a book or
photographic exhibition.
The portraits will be taken by appointment only: Monday,
April 7 at the Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community
Center, 18900 NE 25 Ave., North Miami Beach, Fla.
Any Survivor who would like to take part in this signifi-
cant project should call Merle at 940-5690 to schedule an
cycle of mounting interest
payments by struggling set-
tlements, and the Agency is
turning over interest earned
on investment funds to pay off
interest accrued by set-
tlements in need.
Richard Hirsch, co-chairman
of the Immigration and Ab-
sorption Committee, said that
approximately 8,000 Ethio-
pians are still living in absorp-
tion centers due to lack of per-
manent housing. The commit-
tee suggested that the Ethio-
pian absorption situation be
discussed in a joint
Government-Jewish Agency
Coordinating Committee to
evaluate the situation and
move to rectify the problems.
The Project Renewal Special
Task Force chairman Osias
Goren recommended that five
to sue new neighborhoods be
incorporated annually into the
program until all originally-
targeted neighborhoods are in-
volved. He stressed that all ex-
isting obligations to Project
Renewal by Diaspora com-
munities must be met, and he
urged the continuation of the
twinning concept.
Although it was not on the
official Jewish Agency agenda,
a report was also given on the
status of Operation In-
dependence, with progress be-
ing noted in the areas of inter-
national trade and export, con-
sumer and industrial goods,
and tourism. In their update
Max Fisher, Morton Mandel
and Charles Bronfman noted
that the Israeli Government is
fully supportive of Operation

Study Says
Unity Among Jews Will
Prevail Despite Conflicts
Despite deeply rooted conflicts
within the American Jewish
community, the forces that
unite it will continue to
outweigh the pressures that
divide it, according to a
sociologist specializing in
Jewish affairs.
Dr. Samuel Heilman, pro-
fessor of sociology at Queens
College of the City University
of New York, asserted in a
report that "sectarianism,
division and dissensus have
been a continuing element of
Jewish communal existence
from the beginnirfg and
throughout the century."
The 39-page study,
"American-Jewish Disunity:
An Overview," was commis-
sioned by the American Jewish
Congress and released at its
1986 biennial convention at
the Shoreham Hotel here.
Dire warnings of Jewish
disunity have been issued

The Herut Revolt
The collapse of the Herut
convention has dramatically
increased Israel's political in-
stability. Foreign Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir's failure to
establish undisputed leader-
ship of the party which
dominates the Likud bloc has
cast doubt about his replacing
Shimon Peres in the prime
minister's office next October.
The convention was
disfigured and ultimately
disrupted by ugly clashes
between supporters of the
"establishment" faction head-
sd by Shamir and Minister-
Without-Portfolio Moshe
Arena and supporters of the
dissident factions led by Depu-
ty Prime Minister David Levy
and Minister of Commerce and
Industry Ariel Sharon.
Billed as a fight for the "real
Herut" or for "party
democracy" depending on
one's position party
newcomers dealt a heavy blow
to the old party elites. This
was made possible by the pre-
convention decision of Levy
and Sharon to pool their forces
against the Shamir-Arens fac-
tion. The convention ended in-
decisively, with the Levy-
Sharon insurgents ahead on
points and positioned to create
a post-convention majority in
new party decision-making
What happened to Herut
wasn't simply a generational
conflict. The Shamir-Arens
faction represents Herut (and
Likud) as a conservative party,
hardline in foreign and defense
policy, moderate and cautious
in tone, committed to civil
discourse and to recognized
rules of the Israeli democratic
The Levy faction represents
Herut as a populist party, a
Riyadh's Record
One of the prime claims being made to support the sale of
2,600 additional missiles to Saudi Arabia is that placing those
missiles in Saudi hands "does not represent a threat to Israel's
security" (Sen. Lugar's words in a Mar. 14 letter to his col-
leagues). Underlying that claim is the belief that Saudi Arabia's
intentions toward Israel are if not benign at least realistic. The
Saudis suppposedly know that they will never defeat Israel in a
war; accordingly, they have become reconciled to Israel's
That, unfortunately, is not the case. Despite the claims made
by pro-Saudi advocates, Riyadh's record speaks for itself. Last
summer the London-based Saudi-financed newspaper Al Sharq
al Awsat (July 15,1985) set forth the Saudi position. "Let no one
deny the fact that our major problem is the destruction of Israel.
Yes! We wish to exterminate Israel once and for all, regardless
of whether we accept or do not accept UN Security Council
Resolution 242 and a thousand similar resolutions
Then, as if to undermine those who contend that Riyadh con-
siders its main enemy to be the Soviet Union or Iran, the state-
ment says that "our sworn enemy yesterday, today, and
tomorrow is the State of Israel. Israel's public. Israel's in-
terests. The individual Israeli and Israel's institutions."
Recently, another article in the same newspaper urged that
Israel be expelled from the United Nations (Al Sharq al Awsat,
Feb. 15, 1986). It stated that Israel "is not a state but an entity
based on plunder and terror."
These articles supported by Saudi funds are not aberra-
tions nor are they mere empty rhetoric. On the contrary, Saudi
Arabia's actions demonstrate that its rhetoric reflects its
policies. The Saudis have joined wars against Israel in 1948,
1967, and 1973. There is no indication whatsoever that they
and all their U.S.-supplied weaponry would not join the next
war, if there is one. In the years since 1973 (and, even more
relevantly, since the AWACS sale in 1981) the audis have beer,
consistent opponents of Middle East peace efforts. They have op-
posed Camp David, the Reagan plan, and the Hussein-Peres
peace initiative while supporting Libya, the PLO and Syrian
adventurism. Last month, for example, the Saudis paid the PLO
another quarterly installment of $28.9 million.
The Saudis are natural leaders in the Arab world because of
their petro-power and because they are the guardians of Mecca
and of mainstream Islam. They could be using this unique posi-
tion to advance the peace process and to lead their fellow Arabs
to acceptance of Israel. Instead, they offer their financial and
moral support to rejectionists of every stripe.
They should not be rewarded.

Assad 2
Remember the promo for
the film Jaws 2. It read: "Just
when you thought it was safe
to go back into the water ..."
It was a reminder that there
are still sharks out there and
still horror films about them.
The line could apply,
although without any humor
whatsoever, to the growing
threat emanating from the
shark on Israel's northern
border, Hafez Assad. Israel's
security situation has not ap-
peared especially perilous late-
ly. The security zone in south
Lebanon has held up better
than many expected. Jordan is
not permitting terrorists to
use the Hashemite kingdom as
a base for attacks on Israel.
The peace treaty with Egypt
remains the cornerstone of
Israel's foreign policy. In
short, all's quiet on the
western, southern, and
eastern fronts.
That leaves the Syrian front,
where the situation appears to
be deteriorating. In a speech
delivered on Mar. 8 and broad-
cast on Syrian television,
Assad called on the Syrian
people to prepare themselves
for "martyrdom" in the battle
against "rapacious, ag-
gressive" Israel. He then cited
the examples of four Syrian
suicide bombers as "examples
for every young girl and boy."
In a particularly bizarre
passage, Assad referred to a
young girl who had blown
herself up as attending "a
wedding which (was) different
from any other wedding and to
a ceremony which is different
from any other ceremony." In-
teresting. In the United States
the White House is concerned
about the wave of teenage
suicides. In Syria, the Presi-
dent calls on kids to realize
that "life is meaningless
without martyrdom."
Unfortunately, there is more
brewing on the Syrian front
than mere rhetoric. In an
analysis in the Jerusalem Post
(Mar. 15 international edition),
defense correspondent Hirsh
Goodman writes that "the
assumption of impending con-
flict is not based on words
alone. For the past three years
Assad has been building up his
army systematically,
thoroughly, and relentlessly
despite Syria's dire economic
situation and the pressures of
its continued debilitating
military involvement in
Goodman believes that Syria
may be preparing for a limited
assault on Israel a "land
grab on the Golan Heights and
the injection of enough forces
into the area to preserve it
from Israeli counterattack un-
til a ceasefire has been impos-
ed by a nervous world." He
says that Israel might be forc-
ed to accept such a ceasefire
"given Syria's ability to
unleash volleys of SS-21"
rockets against Israeli military
emplacements "and its ability
to reach major Israeli ...
civilian targets by means of ar-
tillery, rocketry, and
It is an ugly scenario but, as
Goodman points out, it is one
that might not play out on
Syria's terms. "Syria would
not be allowed to dictate the
dimensions of the conflict."
Israel could respond "with
disproportionate means to
even a limited provocation .
Damascus could be threaten-
ed." Moreover, Goodman
writes, "in no circumstances
will Israel be taken by sur-
prise. Even the slightest hint
of war could spark a preemp-
tive response."
Another Israeli reporter,
Moshe Zak of Ma 'ariv, would
agree with Goodman that the
best way to avert war with
Syria is for Israel to make
Assad understand that there is
no way that he will score any
gains in a limited (or unlimited)
war with Israel. He argues
that de facto peace on the
Syrian border only exists
because "Syria is sure that
Israel is strategically superior.
As soon as Assad reaches the
conclusion that he has achiev-
ed strategic parity ... the
danger of war would grow."
He believes that Assad is
threatening war to divert
domestic attention from the
economic austerity program
which he is trying to impose in
Syria. "There is no reason
whatsoever for Jerusalem to
serve as Damascus' national
loudspeaker." In other words,
Israel should ignore Assad's
threats while watching his
military moves very, very
Shimon Peres agrees.

By convention'8 end, the
verbal clash reached a level of
intensity that left most
observers unsure how the rival
leaders would succeed in put-
ting the party back together
Shamir's strongest card is
the rotation no one wants to
be tagged as having forced the
party into opposition. Shamir
has made clear that he "will
not be the leader without a ma-
jority; I will not be leader if my
party does not choose me."
Of the major options facing
them, a party break-up is the
least likely. It is also highly
unlikely that one side will
capitulate and surrender con-
trol of the party. The most
likely outcome will be a tem-
porary compromise, which will
postpone the inevitable
Labor has been very reluc-
tant to respond. Peres, for his
part, has told his people to
speak, if at all, with restraint.
Labor Party leaders postponed
an internal discussion on
breaking up the national unity
government until after the
Herut convention. "Why steal
the show from Herut?" one
party leader asked
While Herut factions were
busy slugging it out in public.
Labor was exploring other
political options. If Herut can-
not close ranks and agree on a
planned merger with their
Likud partners the Liberals
some of the latter might
look for other ways to ensure
their parliamentary future.
If along with his control of
Herut, Shamir has lost the
ability to deliver his party to
coalition compromises with
Peres, Labor might trigger the
next coalition crisis over any
number of issues. The Herut
convention has rearranged
Israel's political equation in
such a way that the next crisis
will probably be the unity
government's last.

ZOA Launches Campaign
Against Saudi Arms Sale
President Alleck A. Resnick
has announced that the Zionist
Organization of America will
conduct a grass roots cam-
paign in opposition to new
Saudi Arms sales proposals by
the U.S Administration.
ResnicK stated bluntly that the
Saudis "don't need" and
''don't deserve" the proposed
U.S. weaponry, which includes
the hand-held "Stinger"
missile, described as an ideal
weapon for terrorists.
Said Resnick, "It is an in-
conceivable premise to believe
that any sales of sophisticated
weaponry scheduled for
?Ster>' in 1989 and into the
1990 s can secure Saudi
Arabia from the threat it
perceives in 1986. Such sales
however, will add to an
already dangerous f irij war
arsenal and can further in-
crease Saudi hostility to peace
with Israel.
Referring to repeated Saudi
requests for more and more
sophisticated weaponry
Resnick cautioned the US.
Administration against fueling
a spiraling and uncontrollable
arms buildup amongst
unstable and totalitarian
states in the Middle East.
"The Saudis already possess
200 combat aircraft to Iran s
70's and Arab armies now can
field more tanks than all of
America's NATO allies com-
bined. Said Resnick, "It is tame
to stop feeding the Kingdom s
insatiable thirst for in-
struments of war until that
country can demonstrate that
it's willing to use its resources
for peace in all of the Middle

A Promise For The Future
The Endowment Fund of the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County
Gifts of Appreciated Property And The Bull Market
Endowment Director
Although our column thus
far has been exclusively
devoted to explaining and,
hopefully, simplifying the En-
dowment Fund concept and
program and the numerous
alternatives available for an in-
dividual or family to create an
Endowment gift, it would be
remiss at this point in time to
let the current stock market
surge go unnoticed. The ques-
tion that I would be asking
myself if I were an existing or
potential Endowment Fund
donor would be: How can a
donor who holds stock which
has greatly appreciated in the
current bull market make an
Endowment gift of this stock
and maximize benefits in the
event the stock continues to
appreciate after the gift is
made? Stated a little different-
ly; how can I convince you that
the time to give is now even
though holding the stock for a
longer period may result in
greater appreciation?
One way to achieve these
benefits would be to consider
the purchase of "call options"
on the stock to be given to the
Endowment Fund. Here's how
it works. A "call option" is a
right to buy a specific stock at
a set price on or before a fixed
future date. For example, the
call option may be a General
Motors June 80 trading at
6.50, its actual price as of
March 20, 1986. The 80 (or
$80) is the "strike price" and
each option contract (for 100
shares of the underlying
security) will cost 100 times
$6.50 or $650. Thus, if a donor
owns 500 shares of General
Motors stock worth, say, $83 a
share and is interested in
donating that stock (worth,
say, $83 a share times 500 or
$41,500) he can purchase a
June 80 call option for the
right to buy 500 shares of the
same stock (five option con-
tracts) which will cost, at $6.50
each, say $3,250 (i.e., $6.50
times 500). Payment for these
options may be generated
through the tax savings the
donor will realize with a
$41,500 charitable deduction.
Since the stock is trading "in
the money," that is to say the
stock at $83 a share is trading
above the "strike price" of
$80, each one dollar advance in
the price of the stock will
customarily increase the value
of the call option by one dollar.
As a result, if the stock ad-
vances to $90 before the June
option expiration date, the
donor may realize a $7 profit
above the purchase price of
$6.50 or $3,500 (i.e., $7 times
500), over 100 percent return
on the investment in the call
options. The donor, therefore,
has enjoyed the continued rise
in the price of the stock despite
the fact that it had been
donated to the Endowment
Fund while at $83 a share.
A call option which is a
capital asset which, if held for
less than six months (which is
customary in option trading),
will result in a short-term gain
or loss. Despite the acquisition
of these call options by the
donor, the Federation has ab-
solute ownership of the
donated stock and may sell the
shares and convert them to
cash for the Endowment
This planning idea may be an
effective way for a donor to
"hedge" his gift of stock
against a continuing rise in its
It you would like further in-
formation regarding these
possibilities, please feel free to
give me a call to discusss any
Endowment giving vehicle or
this opportunity regarding the
purchase of "call options."

Update Opinion
Israelis could be worse off
for Matzot this Pesach than
their forefathers were in the
wilderness, because a recent
fire destroyed over 100,000
packets of Matzot at a factory
which supplies 60 percent of
Israel's needs at Passover.
However, a factory spokesman
said most of the destroyed
Matzot was for export, and
assured there would be enough
for Pesach for all Israelis.
In a resolution for the for-
thcoming annual meeting of
Equity, the Actor's union,
Vanessa Redgrave is calling
for "a complete cultural
boycott of the State of Israel,"
by all the entertainment
unions. Her resolution
demands that Equity instruct
all its members not to perform
in Israel, and that it obtain
similar agreements with
British TV. Pamela Mason said
she was calling for "a cultural
boycott of Vanessa Redgrave.
No member of the Jewish com-
munity should pay to see this
woman perform. Her resolu-
tion could incite racial dishar-
mony in our Union."
Edwin Schlossberg, wealthy
Jewish New Yorker who is to
wed Caroline Kennedy this
summer, is described by
friends as "brilliant" and "a
Renaissance man." The couple
have been dating for over five
years, but delayed announcing
their wedding for fear of
upsetting Miss Kennedy's
grandmother, Rose Kennedy,
95, who is a staunch Roman
Catholic. Mr. Schlossberg has
attended Mass with Miss Ken-
nedy many times, and the cou-
ple are expected to marry in
More Arab babies than
Jewish ones were born in areas
under Israeli control, and in
1985 the smallest number of
immigrants came to Israel
since the founding of the
State; the number of Israeli
emigrants who left Israel for
good last year was high. This
problem is not new and is at
the core of the debate over
Israel's future borders. Rabbi
Meir Kahane advocates forced
expulsion of Arabs from
Israel, Judea, Samaria and
Gaza; Doves call for a repatria-
tion of Western Palestine that
would remove populous Arab
areas from Israeli control.
Israel's demographic problem
is not that it has too many
Arabs but that it has too few
Jews. World Jewry must offer
more than good wishes or
moral strictures. We must
decide to become part of the
Gone are the days when lush

In a suburb of Tel Aviv, a
South African immigrant
opened his 23rd hamburger
restaurant. He has branches

Now that the Israeli economy
is not in a good state, his ham-

as people are looking for
cheaper ways to eat out.
A fund-raising campaign
was initiated in behalf of Pope
John Paul II, to establish a
Carmelite convent on the site
of the Auschwitz death camp
where more than two million
Jews were murdered by the
Nazis. A French Cardinal call-
ed the plan "disconcerting"
and observed that Auschwitz
would always remain "a
reminder of the 'Shoah' that
is, the attempt to exterminate
Jews because they are Jews."
Bishops in Belgium and the
Netherlands were not con-
sulted and are "not very hap-
py" about the campaign. An
unidentified Vatican source
said no Jewish groups were
consulted and that "perhaps
this was a mistake."
Israelis have an Uncanny
way of anticipating and
preventing dangers. A com-
puterized Patient Alarm
system was developed by Car-
diac Care Units in Haifa which
lets you know in advance if you
are going to have a heart at-
tack, thus giving you a chance
to do something about it. The
device is the size of a tran-
sistor radio and is worn on a
belt or in a pocket. The com-
puter picks up your heart's
signals and analyses them in
order to detect abnormalities
in rhythm. An alarm is sound-
ed whenever a heart attack is
in the offing.
There is a growing tendency
of large American companies
to use their public relations
budgets and PAC monies to
further the interests of their
Arab customers. Mobil Oil Cor-
poration paid a half million
dollars for adverts in 26
newspapers praising the "pro-
found and rapidly growing
economic partnership between
the U.S.A. and Saudi Arabia."
Legislation is needed requiring
disclosure to shareholders of
corporate expenditures

any foreign country.
The 100th Anniversary of
the birth of President Harry S.
Truman was celebrated in
Jerusalem at the home of
President Herzog. Among
those present was Abba Eban,
who recalled the day he hand-
ed over his credentials as
Israel's Ambassador to
Washington. Though it was a
stifling hot dav. our State
Department officials insisted
on protocol, which meant
Eban had to wear a full black
tail-coat. Eban arrived at
Truman's air conditioned of-
fice where sat Truman in white
shirt sleeves with red
suspenders holding up his
trousers. Eban presented his
credentials and mumbled the
customary official ready-made
phrases. Truman glared at him
and interrupted: "Now cut out
the crap and let's talk sense."
The Soviets have breathed
new life into Jew-haters by
reproducing insidious demonic
caricatures by Goebbels and
Streicher which appeared
more than 50 years ago in the
notorious Der Sturmer and
Angrif Nazi newspapers in
Germany. Imagine the effect
on tens of millions of Soviet
citizens systematically barrag-
ed with images of the Jew as
the devil and incarnation of
evil! This is an insult and a
threat to Jews everywhere in
the world. As we celebrate the
release of Shcharansky, our
sustained action in behalf of
Soviet refusniks is urgent. We
must stand in solidarity with
them in their courageous
struggle to be free. The right
to emigrate is a cornerstone of
international law and human
rights. Every Jew who keeps
silent, silences the Jewish peo-
ple. Your voice will make the
difference between hope and
despair. Do not abandon them!
A consortium of Haifa
businessmen and a Druse
lawyer bought the cable car up
to the Carmel in Haifa for $1.4
million. The one non-Jewish
owner is seen as a step toward
operating the system on Shab-
bat, despite the anger of local
religious leaders who indicated
they will oppose its operation
on Shabbat by anyone.

The settlements featured in
this film have enormous sym-
bolic and strategic significance
for Israelis. The Etzion Bloc is
located high in the Hebron
Hills, just 15 miles south of
Jerusalem. Nearby Hebron
borders the Judean desert.
The roots of the Jews in these
highlands goes back to biblical
times and the return of the
Jewish people to this land has
come to symbolize, for recent
settlers, the continuation of
Jewish life itself.
Within Israel itself there is a
great debate over West Bank
policy and the settlement
movement. "Peace Conflict"
explores three disparate
Israeli views. American media
coverage tends to focus on of-
ficial Israeli policy with less at-
tention given to Israel's fierce
internal debate. But, Israel's
democratic institutions and
free press encourage expres-
sion of a wide spectrum of
thought. Through profiles of
four Israelis at odds with each
other's ideologies, a more
realistic picture of the state's
internal struggles emerges.
While Americans have heard
much of Yasser Arafat and the
PLO, they know generally lit-
tle about the daily lives of

It was another great day for
Middle East fanatics when
Nabius Mayor Zafer al-Masri
was shot down while walking
home from City Hall. Masri
had been appointed by Prime
Minister Shimon Peres sup-
posedly with the approval of
King Hussein and the Arafat
wing of the PLO. It was
thought that if anyone could
foster indigenous non-terrorist
West Bank Palestinian leader-
ship, Masri could.
That is why they killed him.
At this point, we don't know
precisely who "they" were but
the Abu Nidal terror organiza-

for the killing as has the

Front for the Liberation of

The killing of Masri
represents a serious blow to
Palestinian moderates, to
Shimon Peres and to that ma-
jority of the Israeli public that
wants to reach accommodation
with West Bank Arabs. Of
course, there are Israelis who
don't. Benny Katzover, leader
of a West Bank Jewish settle-
ment group, said that "the
assassination puts an end to
the development of local Arab
leadership." He believes that
in "the long run, it's good for
"In the long run," the
murder of Masri is good for no
one although fanatics on
both sides may think so. The
"mainstream" Arafat wing of
the PLO claims to understand
that. Its Palestine Press Ser-
vice condemned the murder
and correctly pointed out that
"those who committed this act
serve the interests of the
enemies of the Palestinian peo-
ple." Hannah Siniora, editor of
the pro-PLO Jerusalem daily
Al Fajr and someone who is
close to Arafat said that
"whoever is responsible for
this, they should hang ... and
not only him but those who led
him to it."
That is what Siniora said
after the murder. But ten days
earlier, he wrote an editorial
(Al Fair, Feb. 21) which called
on Palestinians to reject any
direct dealings with the Israeli
authorites. Siniora wrote that
any Israelis who believe that
they can end run the PLO and
negotiate with Palestinians
directly will see their efforts
"backfire ... The local popula-
tion will rush to rally behind
the PLO with more unity and
momentum than before.'
There is, then, an element of
hypocrisy in some of the
laments over Masri's death.
Would Siniora and Arafat
have denounced Masri as a
turncoat if the Mayor had been
allowed to live? Would they
have accepted his call for the
PLO to allow Palestinians to
vote democratically on
whether or not the organiza-
tion should renounce terrorism
and accept Israel? Would they
have supported his attempt to
work with Israelis rather than
curse them as usurpers?
None of that seems likely.
Palestinian history during the
past half-century has been the
story of rejecting Israel and
spurning opportunities for
peace. In the years prior to
Israeli independence, the roles
of Abu Nidal, Habash and
Arafat were played by
Jerusalem's notorious Mufti
Haj Amin el-Husseini and
his hit men. They killed hun-
dreds of Palestinians as part of
a reign of terror that succeed-
ed in preventing Palestinian
Arabs from accepting Palesti-
nian Jews.
The absurd heights to which
assassin-enforced rejection
reached can be seen in the
Mufti-dictated Palestinian
refusal to accept the British
White Paper of 1939. That
policy paper which
represented Britain's attempt
to appease Arab extremists by
betraying its commitments to
the Jews ended Jewish im-
migration to Palestine, banned
Jewish land purchases, and
made clear that Britain would
never accept a Jewish state in
Palestine. In essence, it con-
demned hundreds of
thousands of Jews to death at
the hour they most needed
refuge and condemned the
Jewish people to permanent
The British had accepted all
the Mufti's demands except
one they did not grant im-
mediate Palestinian statehood.

Jewish Educators Hear Reports On Increased Day School Enrollment
Educators from U.S. and
Canadian Conservative
synagogues and Solomon
Schechter Day Schools at the
annual convention of the
Jewish Educators Assembly,
March 30 to April 2 at the Con-
cord Hotel, Kiamesha Lake,
N.Y., drew responses to ques-
tions asked by Jewish
What is the meaning of the
Holocaust? Does G-d really ex-
ist? Why should I be good
when society is so bad? These
are some of the most frequent
queries from young people, ac-
cording to Dr. Michael Kor-
man, JEA president.
Dr. Korman, the educational
director at Beth Jeshurun,
Houston, Texas, indicated that
he hoped these formulations
could assist rabbis, teachers
and parents in dealing with the
daily questions from young
Keynoting this part of the
convention was Rabbi Harold
M. Schulweis, a leading
academic authority from
Valley Beth Shalom, Encino,
California, who spoke on
"Answering Theological Ques-
tions Jewish Students Ask."
The 300 Conservative
educators heard several
reports depicting a positive
picture of Jewish education in
the religious schools of the
movement's 825 synagogues.
In addition, a report on the 66
Solomon Schechter Day
Schools showed increased
enrollment and improved
financial assistance.
Keynoting the convention
Sunday on the theme, "A
Celebration of Jewish Educa-
tion: Making Jewish Education
a National Priority," was Dr.
Jonathan Woocher, incoming
executive vice-president of the
Jewish Education Service of
North America. In addition,

Jewish-Catholic Groups
To Cooperate In Holocaust Education
American Jewish Committee
(AJC) and the National Con-
ference of Catholic Bishops
(NCCB) recently announced
the establishment of a joint
program to develop and pro-
vide teaching material about
the Holocaust for all levels of
the Catholic educational
system, including parochial
schools, colleges and univer-
sities, parish education, and
seminary training.
This far-reaching program is
a response to Pope John Paul
IPs recent call "for Catholics
... to fathom the depths of the
extermination of so many
millions of Jews during the Se-
cond World War and the
wounds thereby inflicted on
the consciousness of the
Jewish people."
The joint program will be
directed by Dr. Eugene J.
Fisher, executive secretary of
the Secretariat for Catholic-
Jewish Relations of the NCCB,
and Rabbi A. James Rudin,
AJC's national interreligious
affairs director.
In announcing the program,
Dr. Fisher said: "Catholics in
the United States, by reason of
the strength and scope of the
dialogue we enioy with the
American Jewish community,
are uniquely challenged to
move forward on this mandate
from the Holy Father to
develop solid and balanced cur-
ricula on the Holocaust for our
classrooms on all educational
"Our collaborative effort
with the American Jewish
Committee will hopefully yield
rich educational harvests of
mature insight into the nature
of G-d and the human person."
"The program covers a
three-year period to provide
time for a thoughtful develop-
ment of a full-fledged cur-
riculum," Dr. Fisher added.
"We need adequate time to
develop an inventory of cur-
rently available resources, to
evaluate their general effec-
tiveness, and to adapt them to
the special needs of religious
Said Rabbi Rudin: "This
pioneering effort with the
Roman Catholic community is
potentially one of the most im-
portant projects we have ever
undertaken. I strongly believe
it is our generation's destiny
as well as opportunity to place
Holocaust education firmly
and permanently into the
religious schools of our nation.
It is a sacred obligation since
the Holocaust raises the most
profound moral and
theological as well as historical
and cultural question.

Maimonides Is Subject of
World-Wide Stamp Salute
This past year has seen nine
post offices from around the
world release special postage
stamps and souvenir sheets to
commemorate the 850th birth
anniversary of the famous
Jewish philosopher and physi-
cian Maimonides
Maimonides, whose real
name was Rabbi Moses ben
Maimon (or the Rambam), was
born in Cordoba, an important
city in southern Spain on the
day before the Jewish festival
of Passover in the year 1135.
Throughout the world, his
reputation as an outstanding
rehgious leader, physician,
philosopher and scholar is now
recognized. He is best known
as the author of "Guide for the
Perplexed," a major work not
just in Jewish writing, but also
in world literature and
religion, influencing the
philosophy of Judaism, Islam
and Christianity. The book
reconciles reason with faith,
giving rational interpretations
to numerous Biblical concepts.
Post offices in South
America, Africa and the Carib-
bean have all participated in
the recent philatelic salute in
honor of the 850th birth an-
niversary of Maimonides.
The first to issue a series of
stamps for the Rambam was
Antigua & Barbuda, a former
British colony in the Leeward
chain of the West Indies. The
Caribbean nation issued a $2
stamp and $5 souvenir sheet
featuring Maimonides' por-
trait on June 17, 1985.
The Republic of Guinea, a
former French colony in West
Africa, released an interesting
7 Syli stamp and 7 Syli
souvenir sheet. They pictured
Maimonides when a young
man of 13, being forced to flee
with the other Jews of Cor-
doba in the aftermath of the
town's conquest by a band of
fanatical Moslems.
In the foreground of the
stamp is another portrait of
the famed Jewish philosopher
as he appeared in later life. At
the bottom of the souvenir
sheet is an illustration of a rab-
bi reading from a Torah scroll
to a group of young Jewish or-
phans in the State of Israel

souvenir sheet would appear to
serve as an effective contrast
by showing the enduring
strength of the Jewish faith
over the centuries despite the
outbreak of major persecu-
tions against the Jews in
various Gentile-dominated
Five other nations
Dominica, Grenada, the
Grenada Grenadines, Lesotho
and Sierra Leone have
issued single stamps bearing a
portrait of the Rambam and
highlighting his important con-
tributions in the field of
Two more recent countries
to honor the legacy of
Maimonides on the occasion of
his 850th birth anniversary are
the South American republics
of Paraguay and Bolivia. Both
issued special souvenir sheets
in rather limited editions of
just 5,000 copies.
In an attempt to satisfy the
strong interest of both stamp
and Judaica collectors, the
Atlas Stamp Company, 48
West 48th Street, New York,
NY 10036 has designed a
special stamp album to house
the new Maimonides stamp
In addition to the above men-
tioned sets released this past
year, the stamp album also in-
cludes spaces for earlier
stamps and souvenir sheets
issued in honor of the Rambam
by Israel (1953), Spain (1967)
and Grenada (1971).
A complete Maimonides col-
lection with every postage
stamp or souvenir sheet ever
issued in honor of Maimonides
retails for $69.50. The collec-
tion without the scarce Bolivia
and Paraguay souvenir sheets
retails for $42.50. One can pur-
chase the stamp album alone
for $10.
Shown above are examples of recent stamp issues com-
memorating the 850th birthday of the medieval Jewish]
philosopher Moses Maimonides.

Supreme Court Sidesteps Issue
Of Public School Prayer Groups
Whether or not the Constitu-
tion permits voluntary student
prayer groups in public schools
was left undecided by a
Supreme Court decision last
The Court sidestepped the
issue when it ruled, by a 5-4
vote, that a former member of
the school board in
Williamsport, Pa. had no legal
right to challenge a federal
district court decision
upholding the right of a Chris-
tian student group, called
Petros, to hold prayer
In the majority opinion on
the case known as Bender v.
Williamsport, Justice John
Paul Stevens said that "an in-
dividual board member cannot
invoke the board's interest in
the case to confer standing
upon himself." He also said
that John Youngman Jr., the
former board member, could
not show that he or his school-
age son were harmed by the
The majority opinion did not
deal with the issue of the
legality of voluntary prayer
meetings in high schools. But
the dissenters, led by Chief
Justice Warren Burger, said
that high school students had a
right based on the First
Amendement guarantee of
free speech to hold prayer
meetings on the same basis as
other extracurricular

the same principle as contain-

The Williamsport case
started in 1981 when school of-
ficials, acting on legal advice,
banned prayer meetings in-

sued the school board and
were upheld by a federal
district court. Youngman ap-
pealed on his own, but his term
on the board ran out before a

will allow the prayer meetings
at the Williamsport school.
However, the broader issue of
whether such groups are con-

come up before the Court.
Lapid Named Head Of New Party
JERUSALEM (JTA) Yosef Lapid, a senior editor of the
daily Maanv, was named Secretary General of the newly-formed
Liberal Center Party last week. He was appointed by the party's
unofficial leadership Mayor Shlomo Lehat of Tel Aviv, Leon
Dulzin, chairman of the World Zionist Organization and Jewish
Agency Executives, and Yitzhak Berman, a former Speaker of
the Knesset.
The Liberal Center Party was founded several months ago by
disaffecting members of the Liberal Party wing of Likud. It will
hold internal elections soon.
Lapid retired last year after a five-year term as Director
General of the Israel Broadcasting Authority, which runs the
country's radio and television. He has long been a senior staffer
at Maariv, where he wrote food and travel columns.
Politically he is considered to the right of center. On the ques-
tion of the future of the administered territories, he said the
Liberal Center platform wants "what most Israelis want: a solu-
tion that avoids the twin dangers of a binational state and a
security risk."

HAH*1 A, Israel Professor Josef Singer, president of
Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, has personally invited
former Soviet Jewish Prisoner-of-Conscience Anatoly Shcharan-

In a warm and congratulatory letter to Anatoly (now Natan)
and Avital Shcharansky, president Singer wrote that he was
"filled with excitement and admiration when I contemplate your
heroic struggle to realize the dream of aliyah to Israel. On behalf
of the Technion, I would like to wish you success in our
"Since you have been cut off from your professional work for
so long, the Technion would like to propose hosting you during a
period of refresher courses and advanced study designed to br-

"You can choose from Technion programs in either applied
mathematics, industrial engineering and management, or any
other scientific field you would like ... The language of instruc-
tion should not be an impediment, as it would be possible to take
part of the program in English."
Mr. Shcharansky's professional expertise prior to his im-
prisonment was in the fields of mathematics, computer science,
and cybernetics. He was a computer and cybernetics
technologist at the Moscow Research Institute before his

Memorials To Astronaut Dr. Judith Resnik To Be
NEW YORK, N.Y. Two memorials to honor the memory
of Dr. Judith Resnik and her fellow Challenger astronauts will be
established at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa,
according to Martin Kellner, president of the American Society

What's Next In The Middle East?
Rosenne, Eagleburger Address Large Audience At Temple Beth El

Meir Rosenne, Israel's Am-
bassador to the United States,
and Lawrence Eagleburger,
former Under-Secretary of
State for Political Affairs,
visited the Palm Beaches on
Sunday, March 23, discussing
the topic of "What's Next in
the Middle East" before an au-
dience of nearly 1,000 at Tem-
ple Beth El. The forum was
sponsored by the Palm Beach
Jewish World and the
Synagogue Council of
In an informal press con-
ference prior to the forum,
Ambassador Rosenne
hesitated to predict the
political future of Israel's
Likud bloc after the dissent-
plagued Herut party conven-
tion, saying only that such
open political debate "shows
the great extent to which
Israel upholds democratic
Asked to characterize the
nature of peace in the Middle
East as it now exists, Rosenne
claimed that the 1979 accord
with Egypt, despite the uneasy
peace it engendered, was "the
most important event in the
Middle East since the
establishment of the State of
Israel," though he admitted
that more progress could be
made in the areas of economic
and cultural relations.
"In the years to come we will
see a normalization in our rela-
tions with Egypt," Rosenne
predicted, "and we hope to sit
down ,wi]th other Arab
Mr. Eagleburger added,
however, that in a broader
sense, "There is no peace in
the region, because there are
any number of states sup-
posedly at war with Israel."
Eagleburger was emphatic
in stating that the critical fac-
tor for achieving a comprehen-
sive peace in the Middle East
is "a close and supportive rela-
tionship between Israel and
the United States."
Asked whether Israel's par-
ticipation in the development
of the Strategic Defense In-
itiative would hinder the im-
provement of Israel-Soviet
relations, Ambassador
Rosenne said, "Our participa-
tion in SDI can only enhance
normalization of relations bet-
ween Israel and the Soviet
Union." but he expressed
disappointment that the
change in Moscow's leadership
has not resulted in a changed
attitude towards Israel or
Soviet Jews wishing to
emigrate. He added that
negotiations are taking place
to find the "legal structure"
for Israel's cooperation in
"Star Wars," and he predicted
that progress in this area will
occur when Prime Minister
Peres visits the U.S. this
Eagleburger began his
remarks to the gathering by
reviewing several premises
that affect the conditions for
peace in the Middle East.
According to Eagleburger,
Israel must, with the help of
the United States, maintain its
military strength as well as the
political courage to make dif-
ficult decisions. "It does not
hurt in today's world for
Israel's neighbors to belie\e
that Israel is unpredictable,"
he added.
Reiterating the need for
close Israel-U.S. relations,
Eagleburger said, "There
must be agreement between us
on objectives if not on tactics.
There will be differences, and
there should be, but these
must be tactical, not strategic.
Our relationship with Israel is
permanent. Any differences
are those among friends."
Eagleburger added, "The
worst thing that could happen
in the Middle East would be
for the Arabs to believe that
the United States and Israel
are parting company."
Eagleburger seriously ques-
tioned the wisdom and effec-
tiveness of an international
peace conference which would
include rejectionist Arab
States. "When radical and
moderate Arabs sit in the
same room, the radicals will
always dominate. Such a con-
ference could spell disaster for
the search for peace in the
Middle East," he observed.
The former State Depart-
ment official also denied that
the Soviets would have
anything constructive to add
to the peace process. "We
have seen no evidence that the
Soviet Union regards its in-
terests as being served by
stability in the Middle East,"
said Eagleburger.
Commenting on the role of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization (PLO),
Eagleburger suggested the
possibility of finding Palesti-
nian representatives accep-
table to the PLO but not of the
PLO, while admitting that
such individuals are not easy
to find. "Unaffiliated Palesti-
nians carry no political
weight.*' he said.
Eagleburger pointed out
that progress on "issues of
substance.' such as
Jerusalem, the West Bank, the
Gaza Strip and the Golan
Heights, has been stalled
because of preoccupation with
Palestinian representation.
"Unless we and the Israelis
have talked these issues over
and understand where our dif-
ferences lie, we and our Israeli
allies are in for some difficul-
ty," he predicted.
Admitting that the Middle
East may be one of the pro-
blem areas for which there is
no immediate solution.
Eagleburger nevertheless con-
cluded, "I can foresee the crea-
tion of conditions that will con-
vince the Arabs and the
Soviets that there is no alter-
native to seeking peace in the
Middle East ... I am totally
confident that the U.S. and
Israel will maintain strong
relations which will create the
conditions for peace."
Ambassador Meir Rosenne
began by praising Eagleburger
as the "main architect of the
close relationship that exists
today between Israel and the
United States," and he refer-
red to the audience and to
Jews of all generations
everywhere as ''the
shareholders in the wonderful
enterprise which is the State
of Israel."
He credited the creation of
Israel not to the United Na-
tions but to "Jews who fought
and died, and who, even as
they perished in the concentra-
tion camps, died with
Jerusalem on their lips."
Peace in the Middle East,
Rosenne declared, "Will be
achieved only if Israel remains
strong." Israel's strength, he
added, is measured by the
education of its people and the
soundness of its economy in
addition to military power. "It
is only with a strong Israel
that the Arab countries will
negotiate," he asserted.
Rosenne described close
U.S.-Israel ties as one of the
"pillars on which Middle East
peace will be built," and he
argued that recent acts of ter-
rorism, rather than creating a
rift between the U.S. and
Israel, actually brought the
two countries closer together.
Claiming that the relation-
ship between the U.S. and
Israel transcends "strategic
interests," Rosenne said, "Our
deep understanding is also bas-
ed on the democratic right to
live as free people with free
Another pillar for peace ac-
cording to Rosenne, is "the
solidarity Israel has with
Jewish people all over the
world ... If a Moscow Jew is
hurt, the Jew in Melbourne
and Paris and New York feels
the pain. Even the most
assimilated Jew in the world is
concerned with Israel," he
Rosenne acknowledged the
recent 7th anniversary of the
signing of the Camp David ac-
cords, saying that the peace
treaty with Egypt is evidence
that "Israel believes in peace
... No other country has ever
Ambassador Meir Rosenne Lawrence Eagleburger

fields, military bases and en-
tire cities after winning a
Citing several Egyptian
violations of the 1979 treaty,
such as the withdrawal from
Israel of the Egyptian am-
bassador, and other pro-
blematic events such as the
Ras Burka killings and the

JNF Restores Archaeological Sites In Israel
The Jewish National Fund,
responsible for afforestation
and land reclamation in Israel,
has recently launched an am-
bitious program to restore
many of the countless ar-
chaeological sites in the Jewish
Unlike many countries
where archaeology is a minori-
ty pursuit, thousands of
Israelis flock to admire their
historical heritage at every
possible opportunity. Eli
Shenhav, JNF's chief ar-
chaeologist, attributes the
Israeli love for archaeology to
the fact that the Jewish people
spent centuries exiled form
their ancestral homeland. "We
lived with the stories of the Bi-
ble and the historical sites in
which they took place. Now we
are back in Israel and we
naturally seize every chance to
rediscover our roots. Those
years in exile have sharpened
our archaeological appetites,"
Shenhav states.
Unfortunately, those ap-
petites cannot always be so
easily satisfied, since many of
the fascinating discoveries in
Israel are publicly inaccessible.
To improve the situation, JNF
embarked on a program that
includes constructing access
roads, parking lots, picnic
areas and public bathrooms.
The organization has also
helped to restore the ar-
chaeological sites themselves,
to encourage local inhabitants
and tourists to reach some of
the lesser-known remnants of
the Jewish heritage.
Shenhav left his research in
Tel Aviv University's Depart-
ment of Archaeology four
years ago to join JNF and start
its archaeological restoration
program. Work is soon to com-
mence on one of his pet pro-
jects at Hanot, southwest of
Jerusalem. In the first stage, a
former Roman inn and gar-
rison will be restored with a
parking lot and public
amenities to be constructed
nearby. Other relics in the
vicinity dating to the Roman
era include an oil press and a
mosaic floor belonging to a
former Byzantine church,
which will also be subsequently
restored. Shenhav hopes that
these sites will prove as
popular with visitors to
Jerusalem as the Roman
aqueduct and the Bar Kochba
fortress, restored in Park
Further south is the town of
Dr. Yosef Olmert, an expert
on international terrorism
will address members of the
seminar Associates of the
American Friends of Tel Aviv
University on Monday, April
. in Boca Raton, according
to the chairman of the local
napter of the American
Sussya, where JNF is in the
process of excavating a
synagogue from the Byzantine
period, dated about the sixth
century. This area is often
referred to in the Bible as
Carmel and is consistently con-
fused with Mount Carmel in
the North, overlooking Haifa.
At Sussya, Shenhav intends to
reconstruct an entire village
from the sixth century.
Visitors to the site will be able
to dress in period costumes so
that they can sample their
ancestral lifestyles.
In the North, JNF is also
engaged in a number of pro-
jects involving archaeological
sites. On the northeast shore
of the Sea of Galilee, Shenhav
reports that several options
are being surveyed for restor-
ing a Crusader fortress, which
will be intergrated with camp-
ing, sailing and picnic
facilities. Another Crusader
fortress in Safad will also be
renovated in the near future.
At Park Ashkelon, which
forms a forest belt encircling
the southern part of the city, a
diverse range of archaelogical
treasures have been unearth-
ed. These include sites from
the Byzantine, Roman and
Crusader periods. In Ashdod,
a port city 20 miles south of
Tel Aviv, a similar forest belt
is being planted and historical
sites are being considered for
In the Judean Desert, JNF is
helping to make improvements
at Herodion, which several
thousand years ago served as
King Herod's winter palace.
Work is currently underway
on the ramparts, and a
monorail will eventually be
constructed to transport
visitors around the circular
Eli Shenhav's only regret its
that he must contend with
budget considerations in the
process of restoring Israel's
archaeological treasures.
"There are literally hundreds
of sites waiting to be
restored," he asserts. "The
possibilities are endless. I'm
tremendously exicited by the
potential, and I'm sure the
visitors to our sites will be just
as excited by what they see."

arises in the future.
There have been no indica-
tions from present or past of-
ficers of the Israel foreign ser-
vice as to whether Israel knew
of or suspected Waldheim's
alleged Nazi activities during
his two terms as UN Secretary
General from 1972-81.
Waldheim denied any Nazi
past in a recent interview with
Israel Radio from Vienna. He
said his wartime service in the
Balkans was limited to acting
as an interpreter for the Ger-
man High Command.
Two Yugoslavian
newspapers and the Austrian
daily Kurier published
documents found in a Belgrade
archive which reveal that
Waldheim was wanted for war
crimes in 1947 in connection
with atrocities committed
against partisans and civilians
during the German
Subsequently, the World
Jewish Congress in New York
released a 1948 U.S. Army
document showing that after
World War II both the Army
and the United Nations War
Crimes Commission listed
Waldheim as a suspected Nazi
war criminal. The document,
from the Army's "Combined
Registry of War Criminals and
Security Suspects''
(CROWCASS), reports that
Waldheim's arrest was sought
by Yugoslavia on suspicion of
complicity in what the
Registry listed as "murder."
According to the documents
published in Belgrade and
Vienna, it was Waldheim who,
despite his junior rank, made
proposals for retaliation
measures against local popula-
tions after partisan attacks
and on the treatment of
hostages. His proposals were
passed on to his superiors.
Waldheim flatly rejected the
allegation as "lies, defamation
and devilish intrigue." He
maintained that the
documents lumped all German
officers together and because
no proof was ever found, the
charges were quietly dropped
by the Yugoslav authorities.
Simon Wiesenthal, who
heads the Nazi war crimes
documentation center in Vien-
na, said that the Yugoslav
authorities should check into
why the allegations against
Waldheim were not pursued

Growing Number of Yordim Are Returning to
NEW YORK (JTA)----A growing number of Israelis
who have resided in the United States and Canada for a
number of years are returning to Israel, despite the
precarious economic situation there. According to Israel's
Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, 1,700 Israelis return-
ed home in 1985.
Consul Amos Haddad, head of the Ministry of Labor's
delegation here, said in a summary report on 1985 to
Moshe Katzav, Israel's Labor Minister, that amone the
Israelis returning to Israel are individuals who left ex-
cellent high-paying jobs in the U.S. or Canada "for more
satisfying jobs in Israel, although the pay is considerably
lower." According to Haddad, the yordim, Israelis who left
Israel, who are returning home resided in North American
between two and 11 years.
Project Launched To Research and
Retrieve Florida Jewish History
MIAMI (JTA) A project
to retrieve and exhibit
material on "Jewish Life in
Florida" has been launched
here by Dr. Henry Green,
director of Judaic Studies at
the University of Miami, with
some communal funding from
Miami and Fort Lauderdale,
and a grant from the Florida
Endowment for the
The project researchers are
reaching all across the state to
acquire and examine letters,
photographs, diaries, and oral
histories. The material will be
prepared for display at the
Historical Museum of South
Florida in about three years,
said Green.
Randy Nimnicht, executive
director of the museum, told
the Jewish FIvridian that "we
want the exhibition to travel
not just to museums but to go
where the people are This
is important to Jews and non-
Jews alike." Material on
display will cover the themes
of immigration, family and
synagogue institutions and
relations with the general
The way Green envisions it,
two-thirds of the exhibition
will be constantly on the road.
Local communities where it is
shown will add a remaining
one-third from their own local
history. The Greater Miami
Jewish Federation is currently
collecting many of the same
kinds of local items for its
Community Archives, to be
housed at its headquarters.
Green stressed that the pro-
ject has three objectives. One
is to make Floridians realize
the state's rich Jewish
heritage. The second is to
serve as a model for other com-
munities in Florida the
Cubans, blacks, Haitians "to
develop their own roots."
Finally, he said, he hopes the
exhibition will help deepen
Jewish commitment.
Green also hopes the
research will prove his
hypothesis that the first Jews
in America were those who ar-
rived with Columbus in the
late 1400'p. not those who set-
tled in New Amsterdam in
1654. He and his colleagues
theorize that several Marranos
(secret Spanish Jews) were on
board Columbus' ships.
His project has received fun-
ding and research assistance
from Fort Lauderdale's
Jewish Community Center and
Federation, and the Central
Agency for Jewish Education

HIAS Announces Scholarship Winners
HIAS is the international
migration agency of the
organized Jewish community.
HIAS is a beneficiary of the

NEW YORK, N.Y. Seven
former refugees are the reci-
pients of scholarship awards
from HIAS, the Hebrew Im-
migrant Aid Society. The 1986
award winners five Soviet
emigres and two Southeast
Asians who were selected from
more than 100 applicants
were announced at the
organization's 106th Annual
Meeting, held on Wednesday,
March 12, at the Summit Hotel
in New York.
Chairman of the meeting,
HIAS president Robert L.
Israeloff, explained that each

with Egypt is an important
element for any future peace
negotiations. As a citizen of
Israel, I cannot accept peace
negotiations with any other
Arab country until the peace
treaty with Egypt is im-
plemented to the letter."
Reaffirming Israel's objec-
tions to PLO participation in
peace talks, Rosenne declared,
"There is a tendency to make a
distinction between good and
bad terrorists, between Arafat
and Abu Nidal. When it comes
to terrorists, there are no
distinctions, and no Israeli
government will negotiate
with a terrorist organization."
In addition, Rosenne sees
Soviet intransigence with
regard to Soviet Jewry, its
support of Arab rejectionist
states, and its tacit support of
anti-Semitic attacks in the
media as compelling reasons to
declare that "There is no room
for the Soviet Union in peace
However, like Eagleburger,
Rosenne expressed guarded
optimism about the future.
"Peace is attainable," he
said, "provided that we remain
strong and our relationship
with the United States re-
mains strong." According to
Rosenne, peace talks should be
"direct negotiations," pattern-
ed after those with Egypt, and
the issues "should be discussed
freely by parties with no solu-
tions imposed from outside."
Questioned by a member of
the audience about the propos-
ed Saudi Arms Sale. Rosenne
said, "Israel's position on such
sales has been made repeated-
ly," and Mr. Eagleburger at-
tempted to explain the
American position, "without
accepting it." by saying that
the complex strategic problem
for the U.S. is to keep Iran
from gaining any kind of vic-
tory in the area.
Replying to a question about
rumors of imminent war bet-
ween Syria and Israel, Am-
bassador Rosenne said, "Israel
won t be starting any wart,
but the message from Syria is
that they will start a war as
soon as they achieve military
parity with Israel. I have no
doubt that Assad is preparing
war against Israel."
Asked to define the term
"moderate Arab," Mr.
Eagleburger claimed that
amongst Arab leaders "there
are differences in the degree
of virulence and in the degree
to which they are prepared to
attack Israel. Hussein is not
Quadafi; Mubarak is not
Rosenne assured the au-
dience that Israeli policies,
foreign and domestic, will re-
main consistent after the ex-
pected rotation of government
in October, and he happily
reported that the drop in oil
prices and disarray in the
OPEC cartel could save Israel
$600 million in the next
several months. But he warn-
ed, "If the Western world
stops looking for alternate
sources of oil, we might face a
situation similar to the one we
had in 1973."
Speaking on the Soviet
Jewry issue, Rosenne said, "It
is important now more than
ever to keep the movement go-
ing. What keeps the 400,000
Soviet Jews who are waiting to
leave alive with hope is the
knowledge that they are not
In response to a final ques-
tion about the status of
Jerusalem, Eagleburger ad-
mitted, "It is almost inevitable
that the U.S. and Israel will
disagree on the Jerusalem
question." Calling'this issue
"one of the most difficult pro-
blems the U.S. and Israel will
deal with," Eagleburger
predicted that the U.S. ad-
ministration "will probably
take the view that Jerusalem
must in some way be

The second of the 1986
Shapiro Award winners,
18-year-old Ho Thien Lai, was
born in Saigon one of 12
children. An older brother suc-
ceeded in escaping to the U.S.
and Mr. Thien decided to
follow in his footsteps. He
bade farewell to his family in
1982 and after five days on the
high seas reached Malaysia.
Toward the end of the follow-
ing year, he left Malaysia for
the U.S. With HIAS aid, under
the U.S. government's pro-
gram which assists Southeast
Asian refugees, he was resettl-
ed in Washington State with
the help of the Seattle Jewish
Family Service agency. Now a
high school senior, Ho Thien
Lai is an enthusiastic budding
artist and has recently been ac-
cepted to study for his degree
at the Cornish Art Institute.
Carl Glick of New York,
another of HIAS three
presidents emeriti, presented

Rose Shlyam will celebrate her
18th birthday. The young
Soviet emigre, who had driven
in from Worcester to accept
the award, has already receiv-
ed a number of honors in
recognition of her extensive
musical talents. A child pro-
digy, she left Riga with her
parents in March of 1979, ar-
riving here three months later.
The family was resettled in
Worcester, Mass., and now
resides in the suburb of Nor-
thboro. Ms. Shlyam is a senior
at Algonquin Regional High
Schoo and attends the Longy
Schoo of Music in Cambridge,
where her mother, Eda Mazo
Shlyam, is on the faculty.
Mother and daughter are both
accomplished pianists and
have performed together and
as solo artists with several or-
chestras, including the Central
Massachusetts Symphony.
HIAS vice president, at-
torney Alan Molod of
Philadelphia, and chairman of
the organization's U.S. Opera-
tions Committee, presented
two awards from the Ann S.
Petluck Memorial Fund. The
fund was established by the
late Ms. Petluck's husband,
Meyer Poses. An attorney and

specializing in immigration

Petluck served as director of

Tu Truong was able to leave
Vietnam in 1979; however, his
parents and youngest brother
still remain in that country.
Although he spoke no English
when he arrived here in 1980,
Mr. Truong graduated from
high school seventh in a class
of 97. He received a four-year
university scholarship and
several cash grants and is cur-
rently attending Syracuse
University. Mr. Truong is ma-
joring in mathematics and
works after school at Hutching

puter programming assistant.
The young man feels par-
ticularly close to HIAS, he
says, since his surrogate
grandmother is Dr. Florence

at the meeting. Mrs. Schwarz-
baum made the presentation.
Regina V. Dubrov, who was
20 on March 8, arrived here
from Odessa 10 years ago. She
and her family were the first
Soviet immigrants to settle in

Morris Levinson Elected International
Chairman of Weizmann Institute
A nationally known business
executive and attorney, Morris
Levinson's recent election as
chairman of the international
board of governors of the
Weizmann Institute of Science
caps his lifelong leadership in a
wide range of civic, philan-
thropic and educational ac-
tivities. He has been a long-
time supporter of the Institute
and served as chairman and
president of the Institute's
American Committee.
As the Institute's new inter-
national chairman, Levinson
plans to "maintain the In-
stitute's high standards of ex-
cellence and to keep all those
brilliant young scientists
there. We don't have oil in
Israel but we do have Jewish
brain power as our most
precious natural resource."

Shamir, Levy in First Meeting
After Chaotic Herut Conference
zhak Shamir and David Levy, bit-
ter rivals for leadership of Herut,
met in the Foreign Minister's of-
fice alone last week, their first
meeting since the Herut conven-
tion broke up in chaos Mar. 13. It
was at Shamir's initiative.
The meeting was unannounced
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
admitted, 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 advance.
It was learned later that Shamir
extended an invitation to Levy
which the latter promptly ac-
cepted. Herut sources said earlier
that the rival camps remained at
odds over a proposal by Minister
of Commerce Ariel Sharon, also a
IDF Gives Notice
Of Mobilization
Israel Defense Force gave ad-
vance notice Tuesday of a prac-
tice mobilization for reserve
soldiers to take place in the next
few days. The IDF always gives
advance notice to avoid ap-
prehension at home and inform
neighboring Arab stater, that the
mobilization is only a practice
contender for Herut leadership.
Sharon has suggested a three-
way power-sharing arrangement
by which Shamir would be elected
chairman of Herut, Levy chair-
man of its Executive Committee
and Sharon chairman of the Cen-
tral Committee.
Shamir, denied endorsement at
the aborted convention, insists
that he hold both the party and
Executive Committee chairman-
ships, a tradition established by
former Premier Menachem Begin
who held both positions during his
many years as undisputed leader
of Herut.
stitute was the late Meyer
Weisgal, its master builder,"
says Levinson. Weisgal
directed the expansion and
operation of the Institute from
1944 to 1970, and also served
as the Institute's president.
"Meyer would talk to me
. about the Weizmann Institute
morning, noon and night and
by the time he was through
with me, I didn't have a
chance!" said Levinson.
Levinson, soon after receiv-
ing his law degree from Yale
University in 1937, moved to
New York City and that year
was elected chairman of the
Young Lawyers' Committee of
the United Palestine Appeal,
which is now the United
Jewish Appeal. He has served
as national chairman of the
United Jewish Appeal, presi-
dent and chairman of the
United Jewish Appeal of New
York and as a member of the
Board of Governors of the
Jewish Agency in Jerusalem.
Levinson and his wife, Bar-
bara, now divide their time
between homes in Palm Beach
and New York City. They have
six children and seven
"The Weizmann Institute is
one of the five greatest basic
scientific research institutes in
the world today," says Levin-
son. "One must always
remember that the work of the
Institute benefits not only the
State of Israel and the Jewish
people but all the peoples of
the world."

practice has to be accom-
modated. It would have to be
evaluated whether or not it
compromises the performance
of military duties. But if it does
not and in the case of yar-
mulka, not one of the courts
which had heard the case
thought it did "why should
the military have untrammeled
discretion" to veto it?
"How can we accept that?"
Rapps continued. "Why should
someone have to sacrifice
religious practices to par-
ticipate fully in American life?
This runs counter to our con-
cept of a pluralistic society."
In the Supreme Court deci-
sion, Justice William Renquist,
writing for the court majority,
claimed that the First Amend-
ment "does not require the
military to accommodate
(religious) practices in the face
of its view that they would

military authorities," Renquist
The dissenting justices
William Brennan, Thurgood
Marshall, Harry Blackmun and
Sandra Day O'Connor said
that the majority had given too
little weight to constitutional
rights and yielded too easily to
the armed forces. In a dissen-
ting opinion Brenan wrote, "If
a branch of the military
declares one of its rules suffi-
ciently important to outweigh
a service person's constitu-
tional rights, it seems that the
court will accept that conclu-
sion, no matter how absurd or
unsupported it may be," Bren-
nan wrote.
He expressed doubt that if
Orthodox Jews are allowed to
wear yarmulkas on duty "our
fighting forces (will) slip down
the treacherous slope toward
unkempt appearance, anarchy
and, ultimately, defeat at the
hands of our enemies."
Justice O'Connor added that
the court should have con-
sidered "the special impor-
tance of defending our nation
without abandoning complete-
ly the freedoms that make it
worth defending."

Rabbi Edward L. Cohn,
secretary of the Palm Beach
County Board of Rabbis,
received an honorary Doctor
of Divinity degree from the
- Hebrew Union College (HUC)
Jewish Institute of Religion
during a March 5th Founder's
Day ceremony at the HUC
campus in Cincinnati.
Awarded to spiritual leaders
who have served for 25 years
in the rabbinate, the honorary
degree was conferred upon
Rabbi Cohn by Dr. Alfred Got-
tschalk, president of Hebrew
Union College.
"Fred was a senior when I
was a freshman," Rabbi Cohn
remembered. "He taught a
course I took and we gradually
Rabbi Edward L. Cohn
became friends. Receiving the
degree and a hand-shake from
him was very special."
The citation on Rabbi Cohn's
degree praised him for "ex-
emplary dedication to con-
gregational service" and
"devotion to the cultural and
civic needs of the community."
Following the ceremony,
Rabbi Cohn and six other
honorees attended a luncheon
reception after which he and
his wife and daughter took a
tour of the campus.
"It was a very happy ex-
perience for me, Rabbi Cohn
said. "The 'homecoming' at-
mosphere and the reunion with
old friends was especially

newspapers, periodicals and
journals, according to
Heilman, citing a number of
major areas of division such as
the dispute over conversion,
the definition of "Who is a
Jew," and the status of women
in Judaism.
However, Heilman said that
while the Jewish community
has always lived with fragmen-
tation, "the experience of
history suggests that even the
bitterest disputes get resolved
in one way or another either
the various groups of Jews
find that the forces that divide
them are less significant than
those that unite them, or some
external adversary, reminds
them that they are one."
The rifts in the American
Jewish community are not
merely between Orthodox and
non-Orthodox elements
Conservative and Reform
Jews are also divided on many
issues, and the Orthodox are
divided into modern and tradi-
tional groups, Heilman wrote
in the reoort.
Heilman suggested that the
division between various
groups appear to be based on
"competing worldviews." He
said that "one worldview
seeks to prevent all change
while the other encourages or
embraces change. Both views,
however, remain convinced
that they will ensure the sur-
vival of Judaism and the
The first view, he said, holds
that change is suspect and
ultimately threatens to erode
Judaism, while the second says
that those who fail to adapt
and change will stagnate. In

addition, Heilman pointed out
that there also remains Jewish
groups that are in the "am-
biguous middle position" bet-
ween the extremes.
But Heilman also noted that
despite divisions on various
issues, it is difficult to
characterize today's divisions
as any deeper than those that
have divided Jewish life
throughout the ages. Equally
significant, he wrote, are some
strong signs of unity, one of
the strongest being the will-
ingness of a number of leaders
from the Orthodox, Conser-
vative and Reform branches to
talk to each other and work for

ways to "purge these bizarre
and dangerous extremists off
ihe ticket." There is specula-
tion that Stevenson may
choose to form a so-called
"new Democratic slate," thus
effectively leaving the
LaRouche candidates on the
Democratic list without a
gubernatorial candidate.
Other options are also being
explored by Stevenson.
Levine said there was no
evidence that the candidates
spent much money in their
campaign, or that they cam-
paigned extensively in the
state. "But I do think the elec-
tion does demonstrate the con-
tinuing effort by the LaRouche
people to try and get a
foothold or to infiltrate the
Democratic Party," he said.
LaRouche's National
Democratic Policy Committee
has in recent years backed
hundreds of candidates for of-
fice in primary and general
elections. The 63-year-old
LaRouche also made unsuc-
cessful U.S. Presidential bids
in 1976, 1980 and 1984. The
Associated Press reported
that LaRouche received
150.000 votes in the 1984
presidential primaries.
