Peres Sidesteps Request Israel Take Official Position On Waldheim
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Premier Shimon Peres has
sidestepped World Jewish
Congress urgings that Israel
take an official position on
Kurt Waldheim, the former
United Nations Secretary
General accused by the WJC
and others of having a Nazi
past.
Waldheim, at this time, is a
private citizen and nothing has
yet been proven against him in
a court of law. His remarks
were seen as a means of
heading off media pressure
over the Waldheim issue while
he was in the U.S. last week
Premier Shimon Peres
and an indirect rebuff to the
WJC.
The WJC sent a letter to
Peres, calling on the Premier
and his government to demand
clarification from Waldheim,
who is running for the
presidency of Austria in an
election to be held May 5. The
letter, sent also to Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir and
Knesset Speaker Shlomo
Hillel. was signed by Yitzhak
Korn, executive chairman of
the WJC's Israel branch, and
Avi Bekker, director-general.
"It is clear that Waldheim
lied about, and deliberately
concealed, details about his ac-
tivities in the Balkans in the
years 1942-43, during the
deportation of the Jews of
Salonika to Auschwitz and the
mass murder of partisans,
women and children in
Yugoslavia," the letter said.
It added that Israel must
take a position "especially in
view of Waldheim's special
status (as Secretary General)
when the UN was engaged in
efforts to undermine Israel's
very existence." The letter
pointed out that members of
the U.S. Congress have called
for an investigation of
Waldheim.
This was a reference to a
resolution introduced on the
Senate floor by Sen. Pete
Wilson (R., Calif.) asking the
Justice Department to ex-
amine documents submitted to
it by the WJC to determine
what part he had in Nazi war
crimes. The resolution has the
support of Senate Majority
Leader Robert Dole (R., Kan.),
according to the WJC.
But Israel, for the time be-
ing, is officially non-committal.
"We are following the issue
but will not react until there is
definite proof," a Foreign
Ministry spokesman said.
There has been strong unof-

Federation, JCC Boards Hold Joint Meeting
JCC Capital Fund Drive Discussed
The boards of directors of
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County and the Jewish
Community Center of the
Palm Beaches met on Tuesday
evening, April 1 to discuss the
cooperative effort to build a
new, full-service facility to
house the Center.
Also on hand were guest
speakers Norbert Freuhoff,
fund-raising director for the
Council of Jewish Federations
(CJF); Mitchell Jaffe, assistant
executive director of the
Jewish Welfare Board (JWB);
and Esther Leah Ritz, national
president of JWB.
Alec Engelstein, who served
as meeting chairman in the
absence of Federation presi-
dent Erwin H. Blonder, defin-
ed the purpose of the occasion:
"We are meeting here as com-
mitted Jewish leaders who
know the need in this com-
munity for a Community
Center," he said. "No greater
need exists at the moment; the
future of this community rests
on our efforts."
Zelda Pincourt, president of
the JCC then introduced
Esther Leah Ritz, as "the
Golda Meir of our time."

The Economy
Cabinet To Bail Out Two
Histadrut-Owned Enterprises
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) The Cabinet agreed last week to a $315 million
bail-out of Solel Boneh and Kupat Holim, the two largest Histadrut-owned enter-
prises which are tottering on the brink of financial collapse.
The decision, during a seven hour Cabinet session, was seen as an achieve-
ment for Premier Shimon Peres and a setback for Finance Minister Yitzhak
Modai, who argued that such large scale infusions of government funds into the
economy could severely damage the current economic program which has turned
the tide against inflation.
Gad Yaacobi, Minister of Economic Planning, said that while Modai's warn-
ing is valid, the alternative was the collapse of an organization with 14,000
employees, such as Solel'Boneh, Israel's largest construction company.
The Cabinet will allow Solel Boneh to replace $80 million in short-term debts
with government debentures. Kupat Holim, Histadrufs all-embracing health
fund, will be granted $15 million by the government to defray debts for which
payment is due immediately and a loan of $100 million to meet its short term
debts. Both enterprises are committed to streamlining their operations and lay-
ing off an unspecified number of employees.

By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Two highly controversial
austerity measures an
education tax and a tax on old-
age pensions were approved
by the Cabinet last week, as
the Knesset prepared for its
final debate on the 1986-87
State budget package of which
the new levies are a part.
Premier Shimon Peres has
warned that failure to adopt
the budget could mean the end
of the Labor-Likud unity coali-
tion government. The budget
was drafted mainly by Finance
Minister Yitzhak Modai.
The new taxes were opposed
in the Cabinet by three of his
Likud colleagues Housing
Minister David Levy, Labor
Minister Moshe Katzav and
Minister of Science and
Development Gideon Patt.
The education tax, approved
last summer but never im-
plemented because of linger-
ing opposition in both Labor
and Likud, will be set at $60
for one child and $120 for two
or more children attending
school. A Cabinet committee
will work out exemption
categories which are expected
to include development towns
and low income families.
The old-age pension tax will
be a one-time levy applied to
senior citizens with an income
of over 800 shekels a month
apart from their pensions. A
third unpopular measure, a tax
on cars, was also approved by
the Cabinet, it was introduced
last year as a one-time tax but
the Treasury has included it in
the new budget package.
The tax is two percent of a
car's value. Given the very
high sales tax and customs du-
ty on cars, this could amount
to a substantial sum for car-
owners. It is expected to bring
about $55 million into the
State coffers.

If you are looking for a job, then come and learn the dif-
ferent strategies to seeking employment, on Monday, April

Bar Mitzvah Celebration
Jewish Community Day School
On Saturday evening, March 29, the Jewish Community Day
School marked its Bar Mitzvah year at the Hyatt Palm Beaches
with a 18th Anniversary Dinner-Dance in honor of Benjamin S.
Hornstein. More than 250 parents, community leaders and
friends of Mr. Hornstein were on hand to recognize his devotion
to the Day School and Jewish education in general.
While acknowledging Mr. Hornstein's important role in the
maintenance of educational excellence at the Day School, Alan L.
Shulman, a leader in the Jewish community, presented the
honoree with the original ink-on-paper artwork which decorated
the cover of the Day School's first Commemorative Journal,
unveiled that same evening.
Chaired by Shirley Dellerson, the dinner-dance gave the com-
munity the opportunity to celebrate an important turning point
in its development.
Benjamin S. Hornstein and Bette Wolfson Schapiro greeted Lorraine Vir-
shup and Day School president Dr. Arthur Virshup.
Ann Leibovit and Carol Roberts (center), co-founders of the Jewish Com-
munity Day School, were joined by their husbands Arthur Leibovit (left) and
Dr. Hyman Roberts (right), a past president of the Day School.
An array of former Day School presidents and their spouses: Barry and Eva
Krischer, Max and Joni Tochner, Ellen and Dean Rosenbach, and Detra and
Dr. Howard Kay.
Richard and Joni Preiser enjoyed the evening with Shirley Dellerson, Day
School past president and chairperson of the Anniversary Celebration, and
her husband Dr. Gary Dellerson,
Richard and Robin Bernstein joined Lois Frankel and Jack Palumbo.
Members of the Jewish Community Day School's eighth grade class on hand
to lead a Havdalah service were David Simon, Marc Dober, Matthew Kurit.

Century Village experienced a
20 percent increase in the
number of gifts received this
year.
"The solicitors who brought
the campaign message to the
Century Village community

here did a tremendous job,"
added co-chair Wadler, who
pointed out that 75 percent of
the units in Century Village
which were solicited con-
tributed to the campaign.
A special tribute will be paid

Coming Home
By M.J. ROSENBERG
Our friend, Dan, decided to
spend a month in Israel before
moving from a Washington
law firm to one in his
hometown. Joined by Jeff, his
friend from the Washington
firm, he purchased his El Al
tickets, packed one very com-
pact suitcase, and boarded a
flight to Tel Aviv.
Dan hadn't been in Israel
since he was 16, 12 years ago.
We gave him the names and
phone number of our Israeli
friends, Tod and Minette, and
told him to give them a call.
Then we dropped them a line
telling them when Dan and
Jeff would arrive and sug-
gesting that they might look
out for them. Tod and Minette
had never met Dan but knew
that he is a de facto member of
our family. As for Jeff, they
didn't know him and, in fact,
neither did we.
But this is Israel we are talk-
ing about. So, when Dan and
Jeff arrived at Ben-Gurion Air-
port, Tod and Minette were
there waiting. And, with the
exception of the days Dan and
Jeff spent traveling around the
country, they stayed with
them at their Jerusalem apart-
ment. "It's no trouble,"
Minette told me on the phone,
"they're terrific guys and
we're having a great time with
them." Dan told me that "they
treat us like long-lost family."
Minette and Tod were not
the only Israelis who invited
Dan and Jeff into their homes
and their lives. The other day I
received a letter from Dan tell-
ing me about a two-day trip he
and Jeff made to the Galilee.
He wrote: "I am sitting on the
patio of a hotel in Tiberias,
watching the sun over the
Kineret as it sets on my first
Shabbat in Israel in 12 years."
He then described the day
before. "We arrived yesterday
from Jerusalem and decided to
spend the night here before
traveling to Rosh Hanikra and
back to Tel Aviv on Sunday.
"After dinner, we found a
bar-discotheque and went in. It
was crowded with young
Israelis (a lot of women about
our age) and we mingled ..."
But it was the owner of the
place who went out of his way
to befriend them. "His name is
Amnon and he is a 27-year-old
Sabra who fought- in the
Lebanon war. His family has
lived in Tiberias for 400 years.
At the end of the evening, Am-
non told us to meet him outside
our hotel at seven the next
morning. After about ten Mac-
cabbees (Israeli beer) and little
rest, this was no easy task. But
we did it."
That morning Amnon picked
up the two Americans and
drove them to the Golan
Heights. He showed them
"where the battles were
fought in '67 and '73, guided
us through an Israeli bunker,
and brought us to a military
base ... If I did not already
know the strategic importance
of the Golan before, I do now.
Whoever controls those hills
controls all of northern
Israel."
But Amnon's personal tour
didn't stop there. At the end of
the day, he drove Dan and Jeff
back to his brother's house "on
a mountain overlooking the
Kineret." The "entire house
was overrun with kids" Am-
non's 10 brothers and sisters
and their children. Throughout
the evening, the older family
members told Dan and Jeff
"stories about the October
morning in 1973 when Syrian
and Jordanian bombers came
over the hills and buzzed their
house. The grandfather told us
how during the War of In-
dependence they fought off
the invading Arabs with
pistols and screwdrivers.
These are very brave people."
Amnon had a hard time
understanding why Dan and
Jeff would leave Israel.
"You're Jews. You belong
here." Amnon told them.
Dan told me that he was
moved by Amnon's conviction
that they make aliya. "He
didn't want us in Israel just
because Israel needed us
although that was part of it.
He really believed that we
needed Israel, that we would
derive even more from living
in Israel than Israel would
from having two more
American lawyers."
So, I asked Dan, was he con-
vinced? His answer was that
he would not stay this time but
that he felt guilty about it. "I
can't explain it. Even though I
know that I'll return to Israel
often, I feel guilty because this
whole trip has convinced me
that I have a real place here.
That if I ever need Israel, it
will be there for me. A refuge,
I guess. I feel good knowing
that I can always live here but
bad knowing that I probably
won't unless I have to ."
He was silent for a few
seconds. "But, on the other
hand, that is why the state was
created. And it is such a
Conservative Coalition Seeks
Control Of Local School Board
Four of the seven seats on
the Palm Beach County School
Board will be decided by
voters this fall, and an alliance
of conservative groups is
organizing to win control of
those seats in hopes of gaining
a conservative majority and
diminishing what they view as
a liberal power base within the
School Board.
Among the dozen or so
groups in the coalition are fun-
damentalist Christian clubs
and members of the controver-
sial Populist Party, which has
been labeled as a right-wing,
anti-Semitic group by the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith. Also a pan of the coali-
tion is the North Palm Beach-
based Freedom Council, which
has distributed handbills call-
ing for "Christian School
Board candidates."
"The final tally will show up
at the ballot box," coalition
coordinator Sally Beach told
the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-
Sentinel, and Barbara Sasco,
chairman of the conservative
lobbying group called the
Women's Committee for
Responsible Legislation, add-
ed, "We want to get people on
the School Board who will res-
pond to the voters rather than
to their own power cliques."
Gail Bjork, whose successful
1984 campaign for the Board
was managed by Sally Beach,
said she would not be active in
the alliance but welcomed its
formation. "Conservative peo-
ple feel their views are being
left out by the School Board,"
she said.
Leaders of the alliance say
their chief aim is to oppose
values-clarification techniques
and to reduce the power of the
South County Political
Cooperative (SCPC), which
they view as a liberal voting
bloc.
Andre Fiadell, coordinator
of the SCPC said his group will
endorse candidates for two of
the four School Board seats
left open by the expired terms
of Susan Pell, Hugh Mac-
Millan, Lou Eassa and Bob
Howell. None of these in-
cumbents have said whether
they will seek re-election.
The Conservative coalition
argues that values clarifica-
tion, which revolves around
non-judgmental discussions of
controversial moral issues
such as euthanasia and abor-
tion, violates the parents' right
to know what's taught in the
classroom.
The conservative coalition
has already urged several in-
dividuals to run for the Board
seais in question, but
organizers declined to identify
them or to discuss possible
campaign strategies.
Active Middle East Fronts
By ERIC ROZENMAN
Combat between U.S. and
Libyan forces in the Gulf of
Sidra on March 24 and 2"> over-
shadowed other Middle East
stories with Washington con-
nections recently. But several
deserved attention on their
own.
On March 24, the State
Department knocked down a
renewed claim by Yasir Arafat
that the PLC)' had devised
three formulas for advancing
the Arab-Israeli peace process
and "it is up to the American
administration to give us a for-
mal answer..." Deputy
Spokesman Charles Redman
said, "What is happening is
that Mr. Arafat is attempting
to obfuscate the fact that the
current hiatus in the peace
process is due to the PLO's
failure to meet King Hussein's
challenges. The PLO leader-
ship did not accept (UN Securi-
ty Council Resolutions) 242
and 338 with the clarity and
lack of ambiguity that the
King demanded; did not agree
to negotiate with the state of
be accepted as brother Arabs.
worthy of citizenship and al>-
sorbed across the Arab
world ."
DerwinskiV observations
drew hostile commentaries in
the Syrian and Jordanian
pres.-. On March L'4 a State
Department clarification
noted that "the counselor
made dear that his remarks
did not consitutue a new
American policy ... As Presi-
dent Reagan and others have
noted, the Palestinian problem
IS more than a question of
refugees."
A week before the
U.S.-Libyan clash in the Gulf
of Sidra, Libyan dictator
Muammar Khadafy hosted the
second conference of the Inter-
national Platform for
Resisting Imperialism.
Zionism, Racism. Reaction and
Fascism. Attending from the
United States, in violation of a
Presidential order banning
travel to Libya, was Louis
Farrakhan.

negotiations

were underway."
Perhaps to balance the
rebuke to Arafat, the State
Department also deflated an
observation by its own
beautiful feeling'just knowing counselor Edward Derwinski,
Israefand did not agree to end SSSvSinSS ^ F"'
violence while SSiSiS! rakhans tnp was not being in-
vestigated now. He noted that
when people return from
Libya "we usually talk to
them. We've had people come
back and demand to be ar-
rested, but we refused to ac-
commodate them."
In February Vice President
George Bush's Task Force on
Combatting Terrorism issued
its public report. One
paragraph in the 34-page docu-
ment is headed "Alleviating
Causes of Terrorism." The on-
ly region of the world it
specifically identifies is the
Middle East, noting that "a
cooperative international ef-
fort to mitigate the sources of
grievances, such as pursuing
the peace process in the Mid-
dle East, is an essential yet
complicated and long-term
objective."
This echoes Bush's remark
in his 1984 debate with Vice
Presidential challenger
Geraldine Ferraro that inter-
national terror "is very hard to
guard against. And the
answer, then, really lies in the
Middle East and terror is
happening all over the world -
is a solution to the Palestine
question." But Israel's prime
minister, Shimon Peres, noted
on March 20 that "the Palesti-
nian tragedy is the result of

that Palestinian Arab refugees
still in UN-administered camps
might be better served by ab-

countries. Derwinski said that
"there are a number of the
Arab governments who don't
want to recognize the facts of
life that these people are, in
fact, permanent refugees.
They prefer to instead debate
the non-existent political solu-
tions." He said he found it
"upsetting" to think of
refugees "as pawns in a
political game."
Asserting that neither the
PLO nor Arab states would be
able to crush Israel, and that
peace and a solution to the
refugee problems "is not going
to be found in the political
rhetoric" of the UN and other
international bodies, Derwin-

Vote To Maintain Integrity Of School Board
EDITOR,
The Jewish Floridian:
If your house was developing
serious cracks in its structure
which threatened its security
and your safety, wouldn't you
do everything possible to
remedy the situation? Of
course you would.
Noticeable cracks are
developing in the "house" you
live in Palm Beach County.
Extremist groups in our com-
munity are exerting vigorous
pressure to Christianize our
Public School Board of Educa-
tion. They aim to bring
religious practices into our
public schools such as organiz-
ed prayer, "moments of
silence," so-called "equal ac-
cess," text book censorship,
and tuition tax credits for
parochial schools.
All these cracks, if left unat-
tended, threaten to destroy
the foundation of your house
namely, The Bill of Rights,
which protects the principle of
Church State separation on
which religious liberty is
based.
School Board elections will
be held on Tuesday, Sept. 2. It
is urgent that you vote.
If you plan to be away at that
time, obtain an absentee ballot
from the Supervisor of Elec-
tions at 301 N. Olive St., West
Palm Beach, Fla. 33401. If you
wish, you can be informed by
mail regarding those can-
didates considered best
qualified by the Coalition of
Citizens for Quality Education.
Please plan to vote. YOUR
vote can make a great dif-
ference in the security of your
"house."

Israel Is A Rewarding Place to Visit
By MARLENE GOLDMAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
There are no five-star hotels in
Bet She'an in the northern
part of the country. Like many
Israeli development towns,
Bet She'an is slow-paced and
underdeveloped compared to
neighboring cities. But every
year, American college
graduates volunteer their
skills in these development
towns with a program called
Sherut La'am (Service to the
People).
"It's such a hard life here,"
said Lauren Gotlieb, a Sherut
La'am participant who joined
the program in July 1985.
"You have to really have a lot
of self-strength for the
program."
Gotlieb did not join Sherut
La'am expecting a year-lone
vacation. The 22-year-old
graduate of Tulane University
in New Orleans had visited
Israel five years ago and knew
that she wanted to return
right after college. "I thought
this program would be the best
way to learn Hebrew and learn
about Israeli society," Gotlieb
said.
During the first three mon-
ths of the program, which is
coordinated by the American
Zionist Youth Foundation
(AZYF) and by the Youth and
Hechalutz Department of the
World Zionist Organization,
the volunteers study Hebrew
intensely at an absorption
center in northern Israel. In
this study phase of the pro-
gram, the Sherut La'am group
from North America is often
joined by participants from
South America, South Africa
and Australia. There is also a
six-month program offered
without the intense study pro-
gram for those with good con-
versational Hebrew and prior
Israeli experience.
After an orientation and in-
terview with development
towns officials, the volunteers
disperse to their chosen town
or city for job placement. A
variety of professional fields
are offered, such as in
teaching, community work,
social work, environmental
protection, law, and
computers.
Last year there were 312
participants in Sherut La'am,
70 percent from the United
States. The one-year program
is open to people between the
ages of 20 and 35 who have a
college degree, while the
minimum requirement for the
six-month program is at least
one year of college. Par-
ticipants are supposed to find
work in their professions or

A Promise For The Future
The Endowment Fund of the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County
Transfers Of Assets From A Private Foundation
to the specific situation involv-
ed, it certainly gives a donor
grist for the mill as to whether
he or she should consider
transferring the assets of a
Private Foundation to a
Federation Philanthropic
Fund. For more information
on this Letter Ruling and on
the procedures for implemen-
ting such a transfer from a
Private Foundation to a
Philanthropic Fund or to a
Supporting Foundation, give
me a call so that we may set up
a confidential conference to
discuss this very important
decision.
BY ARNOLD I.
SCHWARTZMAN
Endowment Director
Transfers of Assets from a
Private Foundation
Each year since 1975, the
Endowment Development
Department of the Council of
Jewish Federations has
published an Annual Survey of
Federation Endowment
Development. The results of
the survey are distributed to
Federation leadership and pro-
fessionals throughout the
country. The usefulness of the
data lies not only in what it
tells us about the history of
Endowment Development, but
also in how it determines
where emphasis should be
placed in development in the
coining years. Suffice it to say
that national year-end totals in
the Jewish Federation Endow-
ment Fund program, have in
1985 grown to an all-time high
of $1.1X5 billion. This is an in-
crease of approximately $213
million or 22 percent over the
$912 million reported at the
conclusion of 1984.
Among the fastest growing
of the Endowment vehicles is
the Philanthropic Fund. From
the creation of Philanthropic
Funds alone, almost half a
billion dollars has been ac-
cumulated. Of the grants made
from Philanthropic Funds,
over 81 percent of such grants
went to Federations or for
Federation purposes.
The utilization of Philan-
thropic Funds as charitable
giving vehicles has increased
greatly in no small part due to
the tax advantages the Philan-
thropic Fund provides weigh-
ed against the benefits to be
derived and the complications
of operation, administration
and reporting of a Private
Foundation (it should be noted
that a Private Foundation is
totally distinguishable from
that Endowment giving vehi-
cle which we have previously
spoken about in greater detail
the Affiliated or Supporting
Foundation).
There have been interesting
recent developments which
have led many creators of
Private Foundations to
transfer the assets from a
Private Foundation to an Ad-
vised Fund of a Community
Foundation or Federation. Of
special interest is a private let-
ter ruling from the Internal
Revenue Service No. 8538064.
Simply stated, the Board of
Directors of a Private Founda-
tion elected, under state law,
to terminate the foundation
and transfer all of its assets to
a Community Foundation
described in section 501(cX3)
and section 170 of the Internal
Revenue Code. This transfer
was to be used to create an Ad-
vised Fund in the Community
Foundation. The agreement
creating the Advised Fund
provided that an Advisory
Board, initially consisting of
the Board of Directors of the
Private Foundation, would be
formed to advise the Board of
the Community Foundation of
recommendations for distribu-
tions to charitable organiza-
tions. This situation is in-
terestingly analogous to
transfer of a Private Founda-
tion assets into a Federation
Philanthropic Fund with the

mendations given to the

Private Foundation's Board of

In the Specific factual situa-
tion of the letter ruling, the
Board of the Community
Foundation retained sole
discretion as to whether or not
a distribution would be made,
and all distributions would
have to be within the purposes
and procedures of the Com-
munity Foundation.
The IRS ruled that (1) the
transfer of assets of the
Private Foundation into the
Advised Fund would be a sec-
tion 4942(gXlXA) qualifying
distribution, free of any tax
otherwise chargable to a
Private Foundation on un-
distributed income in a taxable
year; and (2) The transfer
would not constitute a taxable
expenditure under section
4945(d). Since the Community
Foundation retained sole
discretion and control over
distributions made from the
Advised Fund in response to
recommendations made by the
Advisory Board, therefore,
members of the Board of
Directors of the Private Foun-
dation (the assets of which
were transferred into this
fund), could comprise this Ad-
visosry Board.
This private letter ruling
may be of special interest to
those of our readers who have
Private Foundations and are
not satisfied with the cumber-
some requirements of ad-
ministration of such founda-
tions. Although a letter ruling
such as this is only binding as

fields of study, but volunteers
must sometimes settle for
whatever jobs are available.
When Gotlieb decided to
work in Bet She'an, she had
been promised a job in the field
of photography. "But two
weeks before I was supposed
to move to Bet She'an, they
said, *We don't need you,'"
she said. Instead, she was
assigned to teaching English,
French and piano to fifth and
sixth grade students.
"I never taught before in my
life," Gotlieb said, "so it was a
real shock. All of a sudden I'm
teaching full time. At first I
didn't know what I was doing,
but it was a challenge." She
didn't have much choice
because "I had nowhere else to
go."
Gotlieb quickly learned how
to handle her 12 English
students. "At first the kids
were so antsy, then I decided
to teach them the Hokey
Pokey. They loved it .. but
it's a challenge to try to think
of games." The experience can
also be frustrating, according
to Gotlieb. "The students lear- .
ning English and French have
problems reading the letters. I
ga over it slowly but it's'really
frustrating. To me, since
English is my language, it's so
basic. But when they finally
learn something it's so
rewarding."
During the work period,
volunteers receive housing and
a monthly stipend to cover
basic food expenses. However,
housing is not provided for
those who work in large cities.
In the development towns,
three or four people usually
share a two-bedroom apart-
ment. An American
"madrich" (counsellor) visits
each participant once a month
to offer help with any pro-
blems the volunteer might
have.
One of the major problems
with students in Bet She'an is
their lack of discipline, accor-
ding to Larry Rachman, a
25-year-old graduate of
Syracuse University who join-
ed Sherut La'am in July 1985.
While Rachman teaches
English and trombone private-
ly, he sometimes sits in on
classes. The students in
development towns are a pro-
blem, he said. "They're rude,
they talk back to their
teachers, they're constantly
screaming and yelling
throughout the whole class .
they run through halls and
slam doors They definitely
don't care about education."
After a year-and-a-half try-
ing to break into television
production in Los Angeles,
Rachman drove to New York
where he and a friend became
frustrated with not being able
to find jobs. They decided to go
to Israel and live on a kibbutz
and were referred to the
AZYF. The Sherut La'am pro-
gram grabbed Rachman's at-
tention while his friend decid-
ed to travel to London.
Rachman is now helping 16
and 17-year-old students
prepare for the English por-
tion of their "Bagrut" ex-
amination which is the
equivalent to the American
Scholastic Aptitude Test. He
practices conversational
English with some 30 students
for the exam, when they will
have to talk about a picture in
front of an examiner and also
have to improvise small skits.
In addition, Rachman has two
trombone students.
Some people might say it's a

It is also difficult to develop

I did in Israel was to help save
the life of a dog," he said.
While he and a friend were in
the supermarket they found an
itchy, furless puppy. "We took
him home, then brought him to
a vet, and cleaned him up,"
Rachman said, "and now he's
well."
Gotlieb feels she has learned

ing there. "A friend of mine,
an Israeli, knew one of the
soldiers who was killed in
to know why you're not mar-
ried or why you're not living in
Israel."
Rachman has become close
to some of his students and
their families. In one of these
families, the mother has five
chilren and the father is a
border guard and is home only
twice a week. "They say I'm
like a sixth son," Rachman
said, "and they're willing to do

Both Gotlieb and Rachman
are more concerned about
their social relationships with
their students and the families
they have met than they are
about security problems in
Israel. "I was scared to death
to come last July with all the
hijackings," Gotlieb said.
"Once you're here you don't
feel it; the press blows up
every single thing that
happens."

she added, "but it's dangerous

and asked, 'How was your
weekend?' and she said 'Oh,
yesterday we had a memorial

in the face all the time."
For Gotlieb, this is one of the
hardest years she has ever
had. "You feel very down at
times," she admitted, "but you
learn so much. I came here
with this ideal oh, I'm going
to help people. I led such a

Shcharansky To Visit U.S
Refuses To Bow To Soviet 'Extortion'
By DAVID LANDAU
And HUGH ORGEL
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Anatoly Shcharansky told the
Knesset last week that he and
his wife, Avital, plan to visit
the United States in the near
future and would not be deter-
red by Soviet "extortion."
He was referring to reports
which he said he was not en-
tirely sure were correct of
Soviet threats to cut off even
the present trickle of Jewish
emigration should he and his
wife go on what the Kremlin
labels an "anti-Soviet" trip to
the U.S. He said he would
cancel the trip only if the
Soviets open the gates in the
next few months to allow all
Jews who wish to leave for
Israel to do so.
The 38-year-old aliya activist
who came to Israel Feb. 11
after nine years in the Soviet
Gulag addressed Knesset
members at a reception held in
his honor. He carefully steered
clear of politics, specifically
whether he leaned to Labor or
Likud.
"For us in the USSR, the
Knesset was the symbol of the
Jewish nation's unity,"
Shcharansky said. "This may
disappoint some people .. .
But our link was not to Labor
or to Likud but to the entire
nation. Just as Moses of old
was entrusted by G-d to con-
vey to Pharaoh the message
'Let My People Go,' so, too, to-
day, the Knesset is entrusted
with conveying the same
message to Gorbachev and the
modern-day Pharaohs."
He stressed that it was im-
portant therefore for the
Knesset to devote time to a
Community Mourns

of Palm Beach and was on
the board of directors of
St. Mary's Hospital, Palm
Beach Habitation Center
and the American Society
for Technion. Most recent-
ly he was elected to serve
as a board member of the
Joseph L. Morse Geriatric
Center of the Jewish
Home for the Aged of
Palm Beach County, and
was a nominee for the
board of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County. He was also a
member of the Palm Beach
Civic Association, Palm
Beach Chamber of Com-
merce and the Community
Crime Watch.
"Alan Cummings was a
warm and sensitivie man,"
stated Erwin H. Blonder,
President of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County. "His understan-
ding and concern for the
well-being' of others
reflected on the way in
which he led his life. His
passing is not only a great
loss to his family, but to
those of us in the Jewish
community who were his
friends."
Mr. Cummings is surviv-
ed by his wife, Helene;
three sons, Michael, Marc,
and Adam; a daughter,
Ruth Cummings Sorensen;
a brother, Herbert; a
sister, Beatrice Cummings
Mayor; a granddaughter,
Hannah Cummings; and a
grandson, Phillip
Sorenson.
discussion of the condition of
Soviet Jewry. It would be a
great boost to the morale of
Jews inside the USSR, he said.
The reception at the Knesset
was Shcharansky's first public
appearance since the
tumultuous welcome he receiv-
ed when he arrived in Israel
two months ago. For the past
month, he and his wife were
vacationing in northern Israel,
out of the public eye. This gave
rise to rumors that he was ill.
But he appeared quite fit at
the reception though Avital
was absent, reportedly not
feeling well. He recently
underwent a series of medical
examinations and tests by Dr.
Mervyn Gotsman, a prominent
Jerusalem cardiologist. In
fact, Shcharansky's only
health problem appears to be
dental. His teeth deteriorated
during nearly a decade in
Soviet prisons and labor camps
and he recently started an in-
tensive course of treatment at
Hadassah Hospital's dental
clinic.
Friends of Shcharansky said
the couple plans to visit the
U.S. in May and will meet with
President Reagan at the White
House and with members of
Congress; also with Mayor
Edward Koch in New York.
Afterwards, they will tour the
U.S. to address Soviet Jewry
groups all over the country,
the friends said.
It will be Shcharansky's first
trip to the U.S. His wife was
there many times during his
nine years in prison to mobilize
official and public support for
his release. She met with
Reagan and Congressional
leaders on those occasions.

Soviet Jewry
Local Activist Works To Free Soviet Refusenik
By LLOYD RE SNICK
When Sandra Goldberg was
called to the Torah for her bat
mitzvah in November, 1985,
she was celebrating her 50th
birthday. Having been raised
in an Orthodox household,
Sandra did not have the oppor-
tunity of commemorating that
important religious rite of
passage when she was 13.
Yet there was something
else very special about this
ceremony.
"I had decided that the bat
mitzvah would be more mean-
ingful if I did it on behalf of a
Soviet refusenik, preferably
twinning with a woman my
age," recalled Mrs. Goldberg,
who said a special prayer for
Cherna Goldort of Novosibirsk
and had a special twinning cer-
tificate prepared for the
former Soviet physicist-
engineer, who first applied to
emigrate to Israel in 1975.
"I presented the certificate
to Chema's daughter Galina,
who lives in Jerusalem, when I
visited Israel with my husband
after the bat mitzvah," said
Mrs. Goldberg. "Her daughter
will give it to Cherna when she
is allowed to leave and join her
family in Israel."
Since that time Sandra
Goldberg has embarked on a
persistent campaign to have
her Soviet "sister" released.
As the former chairman of the
North Shore (Mass.) Soviet
Jewry Committee, and a
member of the Soviet Jewry
Task Force of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County, Goldberg is familiar
with the plan of action in these
cases.
She has written eloquent let-
ters to Senators Edward Ken-
nedy and Paula Hawkins, to
President Reagan and to
Soviet Ambassador Anatoly
Dobrynin enlisting their sup-
port for the 53-year-old
refusenik who, for various in-
supportable reasons, has been
repeatedly refused permission
to emigrate.
"The first time Cherna ap-
plied, she was refused because
of 'regime considerations,' "
Mrs. Goldberg said. According
to a report on Goldort from the
Israel Public Council for Soviet
Jewry, Cherna did in fact have
a second degree security
clearance when she worked as
a clerk at a research plant in
Bisk, but so did everyone at
the plant, including the clean-
ing staff.
In 1971 Cherna moved to
Novosibirsk with her family
and worked in a factory involv-
ing no secret work. She was
dismissed from her job in 1980
due to ill health and spent a
large part of the next year con-
fined to bed.
Meanwhile, Chema's hus-
band had died and her
daughters Galina and Irina had
both been granted exit visas
and were living in Israel.
When Cherna applied for an
exit visa again in 1980, she was
told that she had to wait until
1990, despite Soviet claims of
concern for "family reunifica-
tion." In 1982, after being told
by her former boss in Bisk that
as far as he was concerned her
period of "secrecy" had ended,
Cherna applied again and was
told that she may have to wait
a lifetime.
"Why are the Soviets keep-
ing a 50-year-old, depressed,
sick woman who is not work-
ing and whose entire family is

in Israel, including three
grandchildren she's never
seen?" Sandra Goldberg ask-
ed, emphasizing the inhumani-
ty and lack of reason in this
case.
"Her daughters want to take
care of her," Goldberg con-
tinued. "The Soviet
authorities have fabricated ar-
bitrary reasons for refusing
her applications."
Nevertheless, Sandra
Goldberg remains optimistic
about Chema's situation.
"There is activity on behalf
of Cherna," Goldberg said.
"People in Canada, England
and Miami write to her, as do
I, but I'm not sure my letters
get to her. I have a gut feeling
about this, though. I think she
will get out. The question is
when."
Displaying press clippings
from a Canadian newspaper
which reported that Cherna
had contacted Canadian jour-
nalists during a visit by a
Canadian commission led by
Joe Clark, External Affairs
Minister, Mrs. Goldberg said,
"The journalists who spoke to
Cherna became more in-
terested in her plight than in
the official goings-on. The
KGB threatened to take
passports away from anyone
who tried to communicate with
her."
Goldberg's activities on
behalf of Soviet Jewry took
shape in 1969 when she visited
the Soviet Union with her hus-
band as part of a medical
delegation.
I >< spile warnings she receiv-
ed from her rabbi and others
not to visit or abet any
refuseniks, she brought yar-
mulkes, tallit and prayerbooks
into the country and delivered
the gifts to a Moscow
synagogue.
"The next day three KGB
agents joined our group and
hung around for a few days,"
Mrs. Goldberg recalled. "But I
just had to do it."
Mrs. Goldberg also sym-
pathizes with the torment ex-
perienced daily by Chema's
two daughters in Israel, who in
1985 petitioned Ronald and
Nancy Reagan for help. "My
mother's struggle to emigrate
has destroyed her, weakened
her health, left her without
hope," Galina and Irina wrote
to the President and First
Lady.

Who Wrote The Bible?
Computer Technology Adding New Dimension To Bible Studies
By MARY S. KROSNEY
And
ELLEN M. SHMUELOFF
JERUSALEM Scientists
in Israel, who are using com-
puters to analyze the Bible, are
uncovering evidence which is
leading them to conclude that
the holy text was written by
one hand and not by a pro-
liferation of authors. The two
experts who used a letter-
skipping method of decoding
the Old Testament and other
holy writings say their
evidence strongly suggests
that the Bible couldn't have
been written by a mortal.
Biblical scholar Dr. Moshe
Katz and computer expert Dr.
Menachem Wiener of the
Technion, Israel's Institute of
Technology, have conducted
research based on the notion
that significant words are con-
cealed in the Hebrew text of
the first five books of the Bible
spelled by letters separated at
fixed intervals, a system allud-
ed to in Rabbinic literature
much later. Using this ap-
proach, words and concepts
were uncovered that do not ap-
pear explicitly in the text.
Dr. Katz, who explained his
theories to journalists at a
press briefing here, said that
the researchers' evidence
dispells the belief that the Bi-
ble is a collection of documents
written and edited by different
persons at different times. The
patterns of letters repeated
throughout all the texts
dismiss this theory, he said,
because the statistical pro-
bability of the patterns of in-
formation appearing at set in-
tervals by chance is extremely
low sometimes 1:3 million.
Giving examples of signifi-
cant words revealed in the
text, he pointed to the repeti-
tion of the Hebrew word
"Tora" (Bible) which appears
in the Book of Genesis
repeatedly every 50 characters
and the word "Elohim" (G-d)
which appears in the same
Book when skipping 26 letters.
The numbers 50 and 26 have
great significance in Jewish
tradition, he stressed.
The remarkable aspect of
the research is not that words
are being found in the text by
stringing together letters at
regular intervals. "That," Dr.
Wiener pointed out in an inter-
view in his office at the Tech-
nion, "can be done by applying
the method to a telephone
directory" but that in every
instance, the revealed words
bear direct relevance to the
text in which they were
concealed.
For instance, the burial site
of Adam and Eve, is never
mentioned in the text of the
Bible, but by the letter-
skipping method, the names
"Adam* and "Eve" appear in
the text where the burial place
of Abraham and Sarah the
Patriarch's Tomb is
described.
The project came about
when Dr. Katz, out of curiousi-
ty, decided to try analyzing the
Bible using the known Rab-
binical method of letter-
skipping. He approached Dr.
Wiener to design the
necessary computer program
to begin research into the
Book of Genesis.
Dr. Wiener explained how
the two scientists worked:
"We use two basic methods ol
investigation. One approach
entails having the text printed
out in a specified number ol
letters to the line and then run-
ning one's eye down the page
to ascertain whether any
words emerge from the new
arrangement of letters. The
number is entirely arbitrary
and we constantly experiment
with different arrangements.
"The second method is to
give the computer a key word
'Adam' for example and
command it to find whether
the letters A, D, A, M, are con-
cealed in a defined body of
text, again at arbitrary but
regular intervals."
Another extraordinary
aspect to emerge from the
research is the prophetic
nature of many words revealed
in the texts, which gives am-
munition to Dr. Katz's convic-
tion that the Old Testament
and certain holy writings
which came later were not
written by a human hand.
For instance, Dr. Katz
pointed to the Book of Esther
which is read during the
Jewish Holiday of Purim to
commemorate the saving of
the Persian Jews during the
reign of King Ahasuerus
(Xerxes).
After Haman, one of the
king's ministers, received per-
mission from him to effectively
exterminate the Jewish
population, Queen Esther, a
Jewess, succeded in per-
suading the king to revoke the
permission; this action
resulted in great rejoicing
which is today celebrated as
the Feast of Purim. As a con-
sequence, Haman's ten sons
were hanged and their names
are listed in the Book of
Esther. After the hangings
were carried out, and Esther
was asked by the king what
more could he do for her and
her people, she requested:
"And let Haman's ten sons be

ship has developed. Often the
key leadership in Federation
comes out of the JCC."
Calling both the JCC and the
Federation, "instruments of
peoplehood," Mrs. Ritz
declared, "Since the Center
and the Federation are in the
same business, they must in-
terface to foster community
continuity."
However, she acknowledged
that total agreement on all
issues is unlikely and non-
productive. "A creative,
dynamic tension between a
functional agency and the cen-
tral body, the Federation, is
absolutely essential" for com-
munity development, she
claimed.
Down playing the notion of
completely autonomous agen-
cies, Mrs. Ritz said, "We are a
communal people in terms of
individuals and institutions. In
the case of Palm Beach the two
institutions represented here
must inevitably and necessari-
ly work together. Unity of pur-
pose and unity in action are
essential."
Noting that more capital
construction of JCCs is taking
place now than at any time
since the 1950s, Mrs. Ritz said
that the impact of such pro-
jects is felt immediately. "We
have seen people who we
didn't know existed come into
connection with the Jewish
community through the
centers. By identifying these
new people the campaigns in
these areas have been positive-
ly impacted, and we've seen in-
creased participation in area
synagogues."

ficial reaction, however.
Two Knesset members,
Chaika Grossman of Mapam
and Shevach Weiss of Labor,
both Holocaust survivors,
spoke out strongly against
Waldheim in interviews
published over the weekend.
Grossman said it would be a
"mark of disgrace" if the
Austrian people elect
Waldheim. Weiss said it was
unbelievable that a Nazi may
be elected President of the
country where Hitler was
born. Both called for a Knesset
debate on Waldheim. Justice
Minister Moshe Nissim warn-
ed that Israel must "carefully
consider" future relations with
Waldheim should he become
Austria's President.
Meanwhile, the WJC's
secretary-general, Israel
Singer, denied his organiza-
tion was trying to influence
the Austrian elections and
defended it for raising the
issue of Waldheim's alleged
Nazi past at this time.
"Whoever says it would
have been nicer if I had waited
with the truth until after
Waldheim's election is
mistaken," Singer said in an
interview in the Vienna daily
Die Presse. "I would have
revealed it in any case, even if
it meant offending the Federal
President."
The WJC's charges against
Waldheim were supported by
Yugoslavian newspapers. The
Belgrade daily Vecernje
Novosti reported recently that
Waldheim s name appeared on
a 1947 list of wanted war
criminals published by the
United Nations War Crimes
Commission.
JWB assistant executive
director Mitchell Jaffe em-
phasized that a willingness to
cooperate should characterize
the JCC-Federation partner-
ship, and he compared the
relationship to "two streams
coming together which could
soon become a roaring
Mississippi."
Jaffe defined the JWB,
which serves as the national
organization for JCCs in North
America, as "the repository of
experiences and knowledge.
Virtually every JCC built in
North America has used JWB
as a resource so mistakes can
be avoided," he said.
Jaffe cited facility planning,
operational budgeting and
choice of equipment and fur-
nishings as those areas with
which the JWB could provide
help, and he concluded by
echoing Esther Leah Ritz in
stressing the importance of a
Jewish Community Center.
"A JCC is critical to the
enhancement of Jewish life,"
he declared. "The need for in-
struments to pull the
fragments of the Jewish com-
munity together is more
significant now than it has
ever been. The easiest
threshold to come across in the
Jewish community is that of
the JCC."
CJF fund-raising director
Norbert Freuhoff added that
the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions is willing to provide con-
sultants to help with the
capital campaign and
budgeting, and he said "JCCs
have a unique capacity to
reach out to individuals. A new
facility here will make the
Jewish community proud of
Palm Beach County.
Asked if any statistical
studies have analyzed the ef-
fect of a JCC capital campaign
on a general Federation cam-
paign, Mitchell Jaffe said that
two such studies were done,
but they proved inconclusive.
"I then decided to interview
Federation leaders to get their
perception ot tne impact," said
Jaffe. "There was a uniform
response that the JCC capital
campaign was the best thing
that ever happened to their
Federation."
Jaffe explained that the JCC
capital campaigns tapped new
sources of giving and re-
involved many people who
were once active in Federa-
tion. "The JCC is the most
visible presence of the Federa-
tion in the Jewish communi-
ty," he claimed, and Norbert
Freuhoff cited demographic
studies which indicated that
people who belong to a Jewish
organization, such as a JCC,
are more likely to contribute to
the Federation campaign.
Responding to a question on
our community's uniqueness in
terms of the elderly popula-
tion, and how a JCC might ad-
dress that situation, Mitchell
Jaffe noted that many Com-
munity Centers, in collabora-
tion with other relevant agen-
cies, have become leaders in
the provision of day care for
the elderly. "We need to keep
our elderly citizens functioning
healthfully in their home en-
vironment for as long as possi-
ble," Jaffe said.
However, he warned against
placing the primary focus of a
JCC on the elderly.
"Other populations require
attention. There is a large in-
flux of younger families.
Singles and single parent
families need JCC services.
The JCC here has the normal
gamut of problems all JCCs
face, along with the special
needs of the elderly, he
observed.
Alec Engelstein assured the
leaders that "the elderly will
never be forgotten," but he ad-
ded that "the youngsters are
the future of our community
... If we do not provide the
means for Jewish kids to get
together and grow up with the
Jewish experience, then who is
going to come and occupy
these chairs of leadership in
the future?"
With the emphasis at the
joint meeting placed on
cooperation between the
Federation and JCC leader-
ship, the long-held vision of a
full-scale community center
came one large step closer to
realization.

hanged upon the gallows."
(Book of Esther, 9:13) a reply
which has puzzled scholars for
centuries, since the ten were
already dead.
A major hint explaining this
mystery, said Katz, is the ap-
pearance of the three Hebrew
letters "taf," "shin" and
"zayin" in the list of Haman's
ten hanged sons (written
smaller than the other letters);
"taf" "shin" "zayin" spell out
the number in the Jewish
calendar for the year 1946 of
the Gregorian calendar. On
October 16, 1946, explained
Dr. Katz, who showed a slide
of the front page of the Herald
Tribune of that date, ten Nazis
were hanged following their
conviction and sentencing in
the Nuremberg Trials. (Eleven
had been convicted, in fact, but
Herman Goering had commit-
ted suicide by poisoning an
hour before the execution.) In-
explicably, Julius Streicher,
one of the ten hanged, seconds
before the noose was tightened
cried out, "Purim Fest, 1946!"
Both Goering and Streicher
had become instruments in the
fulfillment of the prophecy of
the Book of Esther, said Katz.
Additionally, said Katz, in
1946 according to the Jewish
Calendar, October 16 fell ex-
actly on the annual Jewish
holiday Hoshana Raba which is
considered the last day of
judgement in a chain of high
holidays including Rosh
Hashana and Yom Kippur a
period of judgement.
The Purim-Nazi story was
one of the most dramatic ex-
amples given by the Israeli
scientists of the many ways
the Bible and other holy
writings provide prophetic
hints of the future.

scientifically proved this, but
the preponderance of occur-
rences certainly points to it.
And it is as reasonable a sup-
position, if not more so, than
the theories claiming that the
Bible has several authors."
The doctors have only scrat-
ched the surface with their
research so far. Unexplored
Biblical texts are already on
the computer, waiting to be
tackled. The scientists also
plan to make this method of
studying the Bible available on
micro-computer to high school
students.
Inevitably there will be scep-
tics and critics to answer, but
whichever views other
scholars hold, many will admit
that computer technology is
adding powerful new dimen-
sions to the study of the Bible.

Friday, April 11, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 13
Academics Study Jewish Humor
By NED GOLDBERG,
ACSW, LCSW
A personal view from the
Acting Executive Director
of the Jewish Family and
Children's Service
Guilt feelings. Those people
who harbor an excessive
amount fill the offices of
counseling agencies. Those
people who don't harbor
enough fill the cells of today's
overcrowded prisons.
The development of guilt
feelings in the personality
growth of any individual is a
healthy thing. Excessive feel-
ings of guilt, on the other
hand, can lead to personality
conflicts and anxiety for any
individual. Obviously the abili-
ty to act responsibly toward
others and at the same time
positively handle residual guilt
feelings is a sign of a well ad-
justed personality.
Frequently clients at JFCS
identify the problem that br-
ings them to counseling as
"Jewish guilt." This
phenomenom, so I've been
told, is somehow a unique
character of the Jewish
psyche. My experiences,
however, conclude that Jews
haven't cornered the market
on guilt. Catholics also ex-
perience guilt, as do other in-
dividuals who attempt, not
always successfully, to observe
their religious teachings strict-
ly, or to adhere to the values of
their parents.
Recently I was speaking to
the staff of a nursing home on
the subject of patient adjust-
ment. I was interrupted by an
aide, a young black woman in
her thirties, who told me that
the psychological adjustment
of her patients was not the
most difficult part of her job.
The most difficult part of her
job, she said, was dealing with
family members; guilty family
members. I sat down while the *
aide lectured her colleagues on
the concept of guilt, quite ob-
viously a concept that you
don't have to be degreed, or.
Jewish, to feel and
understand.
At JFCS the guilt feelings of
a client are discussed,
regardless of whether the
counseling is individual,
marital, family, or group.
Perhaps where it is dealt with
best is the Caregivers Group,
led by caseworker Susan
Fleischer. In this group family
members frequently deal with
guilt over the care of a family
member and realize that they

are not alone. Sometimes a
group is successful in reassur-
ing a family member that a
decision made was an ap-
propriate and responsible deci-
sion, and thus the guilt feel-
ings for that individual are
reduced and the person
reassured.

SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. -
(JTA) Academia is finally
turning the scholarly spotlight
on Jewish humor as con-
ferences on the subject at
Stanford University, Mt.
Holyoke College, and the New
School for Social Research
attest.
Early in March, Stanford
University held a two-part
series of discussions on
"Jewish Identity: Encounters
with American Culture." The
first session dealt with Jewish
humor as "social comment and
self-perception," featuring
several speakers.
Mt. Holyoke College held a
two-day conference on
"Humor and Survival" timed
(March 25-26) to celebrate
Purim and the establishment
of a Chair in Jewish Studies
there. Prof. Louis Feldman of
Yeshiva University, the first of
three visiting scholars to oc-
cupy the Chair for one year,
spoke at the panel on "Foun-
dations of Jewish Humor."
Following the panel, in
which two other academics
took part, Ruth Wisse, Pro-
fessor of Yiddish Literature at
McGill University, gave a
keynote address on comic
motifs in modern Yiddish
poetry. Other sessions focuss-
ed on Jewish literary tradi-
tions, and on the popular
culture.
Jewish humor and its impact
on American humor is the
theme of the scheduled Second
International Conference on
Jewish Humor sponsored by
Tel Aviv University, June 9-12
at the New School for Social
Research in New York. Con-
ference organizers expect 500
persons including come-
dians, humorists, and
academics to participate in
the meeting, which will repre-
sent a scholarly attempt to
understand the roots and
meanings of Jewish humor.
Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan
Announces Berman Appointment
Sen. Daniel Patrick
Moynihan (D.-N.Y.) announced
the appointment of Julius Ber-
man to the Commission on the
Preservation of America's
Heritage Abroad.
Senate Democratic Leader
Robert C. Byrd made the ap-
pointment upon the recom-
mendation of Sen. Moynihan.
The Commission on the
Preservation of America's
Heritage Abroad was created
last year to help preserve
cemeteries overseas where
ancestors of Americans are
buried.
Mr. Berman, former chair-
man of the Conference of
Presidents of American
Jewish Organizations, is a
senior partner at the New
York City law firm of Kaye,
Scholer, Fierman, Hays and
Handler.
"Julius Berman's years of
devoted communal leadership
demonstrate his unique
qualifications for membership
on this commission," Sen.
Moynihan said in a statement.
"He is a person of proven in-
tegrity and sound judgment."
Mr. Berman said of the com-
mission: "Having personally
immigrated to this country, I
find it gratifying that the
United States, which is a na-
tion of immigrants, has taken
this important step to
safeguard the sanctity of
cemeteries in which the
relatives and forebears of
Americans are buried."

Hillel Initiates Israel Leadership Training
One student from Florida
Atlantic University or Palm
Beach Junior College will be
awarded a substantial merit
scholarship for study at an
Israeli university this coming
year as part of the B'nai B'rith
Hillel Foundation's new*Israeli
Leadership Training Program.
This program is being made
possible through the support
of the B'nai B'rith Hillel of
Broward/Palm Beach and the
Hillel Foundations of Florida.
The two-year program
begins with a subsidized year
of study at the Israeli universi-
ty of the student's choice (as
part of that school's regular
program for overseas
students). During the year
abroad, under the auspices of
the B'nai B'rith Hillel Founda-
tions, the student will attend
with other American and
Canadian ILTP participants a
series of leadership training
seminars on campus organiz-
ing, advocacy, and programm-
ing techniques, while attaining
fundamental information
about Israel. Upon the stu-
dent's return to FAU or PB-
JC, he/she will receive an
honorarium to promote study-
in-Israel programs, as part of
the B'nai B'rith Hillel of
Broward/Palm Beach staff.
Nancy Tobin, director of the
Hillel, announced that any
Jewish student currently
enrolled at FAU or PBJC is
eligible to apply to the pro-
Soviets Plan To Bulldoze
Tblisi Synagogue
By JUDITH KOHN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Soviet authorities are planning
to bulldoze one of the few re-
maining synagogues in the
Soviet Union and build a public
square in its place, the Simon
Wiesenthal Center was recent-
ly informed.
In a letter sent to members
of Congress recently, the
Center reported that the
Ashkenazic Synagogue in
Tbilisi, the capitol of the
Georgian Republic, was slated
for demolition. Closing the
building, the letter noted,
would have "obvious tragic im-
pact" on the Tbilisi Jewish
community of some 20,000.
The report of the planned
demolition came from Isai and
Grigory Goldstein, two
brothers from Tbilisi who were
recently granted exit visas
after seeking to emigrate to
Israel for 15 years, according
to Rabbi Abraham Cooper,
associate dean of the Wiesen-
thal Center, who sent the let-
ter to Congress.
The Goldsteins are to arrive
in Vienna on April 15, and it is
The Tbilisi synagogue is one
of two synagogues in the
Georgian capital and one of on-
ly 55 in the Soviet Union for a
Jewish population of some 3
million. According to Cooper,
the synagogues in Tbilisi are
unusually well attended and
have attracted many younger
Jews who have developed an
intense interest in their
religion.
The planned demolition is
one of a series of negative
signals for Soviet Jewry that
have recently taken place in
Tbilisi, Cooper observed. He
noted that it fits the Soviet
pattern of trying to "dash
hopes internally" whenever
there is talk outside about im-
pending liberalization.
In this instance, the move
would come after the release
of the celebrated Jewish dissi-
dent Anatoly Shcharansky in a
prisoner exchange and the re-
cent permission to emigrate
granted the Goldsteins and
some other veteran refuseniks.
Responding to a report from
the Wiesenthal Center, Sen.
Carl Levin (D. Mich.) cir-
culated a petition that was for-
warded to the President of the
expected they will have news Council of Religious Affairs in
on the status of thesynagogue, Moscow with the signatures of
Cooper told the JTA. He said
he assumed that since no news
has been heard to the con-
trary, the building is still
standing.

Senators have sent letters of
their own urging that the plans
be reversed.

UJA On The Road
National Campaign Cabinet Gets
Local Input On '87 Campaign Plan
NEW YORK, N.Y. With
some 500 representatives of 79
communities taking part in
eight locations across the
country during the last two
months, the United Jewish Ap-
peal's "National Campaign
Cabinet on the Road" program
has successfully completed its
mission of maximizing com-
munity participation in the
Planning of the 1987
JA/Federation Campaign.
In the final stage of a com-
prehensive development pro-
cess, the resulting document,
the 1987 UJA Campaign Plan,
was approved recently by the
agency's national officers, the
highest UJA decision-making
body.
"The aim of 'NCC on the
Road,' said Martin F. Stein
of Milwaukee, Wis., UJA na-
tional chairman-designate for
the 1987 Campaign, "was to
obtain advice and consent at
the grass-roots level, to bring
the campaign planning process
to our regions and to communi-
ty leadership throughout the
nation and have local Jewish
leaders help shape the national
plan. I am happy to say I
believe we have met our
objectives."
Stein, a UJA national vice
chairman and chairman of
UJA's Community Leadership
Consultation Program, and
other top lay leaders and UJA
professionals met with com-
munity representatives in such
centers as Atlanta,
Philadelphia, Miami and Hart-
ford, Conn. The resulting
dialogues produced a variety
of program suggestions in the
areas of major gifts, missions,
leadership development and
raising the level of Jewish
consciousness.
The meeting also provided
Stein, who will succeed Alex
Grass of Harrisburg, Pa., as
UJA national chairman in
May, with the opportunity to
relate to a broad segment of
the UJA/Federation family
and to develop a meaningful
dialogue in regard to all
aspects of UJA's work.
In addition to the meetings
in the "NCC on the Road" pro-
gram, 28 others were held, in-
volving lay and professional
leaders and representatives of
such groups as the UJA Youn^
Leadership Cabinet and cam-
paign chairmen. More than
750 persons participated in
both series of meetings.
The approval of the 1987
Campaign Plan by the UJA na-
tional officers was the
culmination of a planning pro-
cess that, Stein said, was
designed "to incorporate com-
munity perceptions and ideas
and respond to community
needs." The process began
with the UJA Planning Com-
mittee, led by UJA national
vice chairman H. Paul
Rosenberg of Kansas City. The
Committee's draft plan was
subsequently discussed by the
UJA's National Campaign
Cabinet and refined during the
"NCC on the Road" program.

THE ONLY WINE
BOTH THESE CRITICS
HAVE FAITH IN.
Some wines are praised by authorities on wine. Some are praised by authorities on
Kosher law (Kashruth). But it seems that Carmel wines have managed to please
demanding critics of both persuasions. r
Which is no surprise, considering Camel's great viti-|
cultural heritage dates back to biblicaltimes. A heritage
that's resulted in some truly notable wines, such as
our Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and our new
Cabernet Blanc. All with truly superb fragrance and
depth. As well as with a truly superb Kosher upbringing.
So whether you prefer vintage varietals or the tradi-
tional richness of sacramental wines, this holiday, why not
celebrate with Israel's finest wines?
After all, they've been getting rave
reviews for more than 5,000 years.

German, Jewish Leaders Confer On Soviet Human Rights
(Editor'8 note: Dr. Allan
Kagedan, a policy analyst with
the American Jewish Commit-
tee's International Relations
Department, recently returned
from West Germany, where he
participated in the Conference
on the Condition of Minorities
in the Soviet Union under In-
ternational Law.)
By DR. ALLAN KAGEDAN
NEW YORK (JTA) -
West German and Jewish
scholars and leaders joined
forces to call for an end to
Soviet violation of the basic
human rights of Soviet Jews
and Germans.
The occasion was a Con-
ference on the Condition of
Minorities in the Soviet Union
under International Law, held
in Bonn, March 19-21, cospon-
sored by the American Jewish
Committee and the University
of Cologne's Institut fuer
Ostrecht, with grants from the
Elson and Volkswagen
Foundations.
The meeting marked
perhaps the first time that
West German leaders commit-
ted themselves publicly to the
cause of Soviet Jewry.
Previously they preferred to
focus on individual cases, like
thai of Anatoly Shcharansky.
West German willingness to
place Soviet Jewry on their
public as well as private agen-
da with Soviet leaders
represents a potentially
significant development in
light of recent intensified
Soviet efforts to woo the
Federal Republic away from
its close alliance with the
I'nited States.
The conference drew some
50 scholars of international
law and government from
leading American and German
universities and research in-
stitutions. Conference par-
ticipants, among whom were
many younger Germans, ex-
plored the Soviet and interna-
tional legal norms appropriate
for measuring the treatment,
and advocating the cause, of
the Jewish and German
minorities.
In a concluding statement,
participants declared Soviet
practices regarding minorities
t< i l>e violations of accepted in-
ternational standards; called
on the United Nations to adopt
a Declaration on Minority
Rights; and urged the UN
Human Rights Commission to
draft a Declaration on the
Right to Leave and Return.
Both UN initiatives, currently
under discussion in diplomatic
circles, were given a boost by
this joint American and Ger-
man support.
In research terms, the Con-
ference represented a pioneer-
ing effort to analyze the pro-
blems facing Soviet Jews and
Germans. Each group
numbers about 2 million, and
in the 1970's 250,000 Jews and
85,000 Germans succeeded in
emigrating from the USSR.
The fact that neither group
possessed a viable Soviet ter-
ritorial unit hampers their ex-
ercise of cultural rights. Both
groups, moreover, experienc-
ed hostile incitement in the
government-run media, and
discrimination in employment
and higher education.
Differences for both groups
were discerned in socio-
economic status, with Jews
concentrated in the profes-
sions, and Germans focussed
in skilled crafts and technical
fields; in demography, with
Germans having a significantly
higher birthrate than Jews;
and in the degree of desire for
emigration among the groups:
an estimated 100,000 Germans
have taken initial steps to
emigrate as against some
400,000 Jews.
Participating in the Con-
ference were prominent
figures in the West German
foreign policy establishment,
including Volker Ruehe, depu-
ty president of the governing
Christian Democratic Party
and its chief spokesman for
foreign affairs; Lutz
Stavenhagen, Minister of
State for Foreign Affairs; and
Richard Lowenthal, long-time
architect of the Eastern Euro-
pean policy of the Social
Democratic opposition. The
Ambassadors to West Ger-
many of Israel and Italy, as
well as the U.S. Embassy's
Political Counselor also
attended.
The speakers who opened
the Conference dwelt on the
common interests of Germans
and Jews in demanding Soviet
compliance with international
legal standards in their treat-
ment of their Jewish and Ger-
man minorities.
American Jewish Committee
president Howard Friedman
stressed that cooperation bet-
ween Germans and American
Jews on human rights issues
was based on the fact that both
lived in free societies and felt a
moral duty to ease the plight of
their less fortunate ethnic
fellows in the USSR.
Ruehe urged Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev to unders-
tand that political relations
between East and West
depended on such issues as
Soviet treatment of its Jewish
and German minorities, and
that Soviet actions on Jewish
emigration will indicate how
serious the Soviets are about
improving East-West ties.
Edward Elson, AJCommit-
tee treasurer, said that, would be addressing were
though the conference was borne by real people, whose
scholarly in nature, the pro- plight demands coordinated
blems that the participants humanitarian action.
Demjanjuk Remanded in Custody For Another
15 Days
TEL AVIV (JTA) Accused war criminal John Dem-
janjuk was ordered remanded in custody for a further 15
days by Jerusalem Chief Magistrate Aharon Simcha, sit-
ting in a make-shift courtroom at the Ayalon Prison in
Ramie.
Demjanjuk, 65, the former Ukrainian extradited to Israel
from the United States, is suspected of being the notorious
prison guard, "Ivan the Terrible," at the Treblinka concen-
tration camp during the Holocaust.
Simcha said that there was sufficient evidence to warrant
holding Demjanjuk in prison pending his trial. His state-
ment came after he had asked police prosecutor Alex Ish-
Shalom to comment on media reports that the Treblinka
prison guard known as "Ivan the Terrible" had been killed
during an inmate uprising at the death camp.
Ish-Shalom described the reports as imaginary, saying
that no single person had come forward with proof that he
himself had taken part in the killing of the prison guard or
had been an actual eye-witness to his alleged death.

Rabbis Arrested At Peaceful
Demonstration For Soviet Jewry
By JUDITH KOHN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Representatives of the
Reform. Conservative and Or-
thodox rabbinical bodies were
among 21 rabbis and lay
leaders from across the coun-
try arrested recently in a
peaceful demonstration for
Soviet Jewry. The protest,
which is the most recent in a
nearly year-old series of arrest
rallies outside the Soviet Em-
bassy here, appeared to mark
a new phase in the nationwide
Soviet Jewry movement
following the release of the
celebrated Jewish Prisoner of
Conscience Anatoly
Shcharansky.
For the first time since the
civil disobedience strategy was
adopted here last May, the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry, the main "establish-
ment" Soviet Jewry organiza-
tion with membership agencies
throughout the country, effec-
tively endorsed the arrests by
supporting the rabbinical
Senator Seeking the Issuance of Stamp Honor-
ing Wallenberg
WASHINGTON (JTA) Sen. Carl Levin (D.
Mich.), sponsored a bill approved last year naming a
Washington street after Raoul Wallenberg, is now seeking
the issuance of an official stamp to honor the famed World
War II Swedish diplomat for his rescue of Jews from the
Holocaust.
Wallenberg, who was responsible for saving tens of
thousands of Hungarian Jews from Nazi concentration
camps by issuing them protective Swedish passports, was
declared by the Soviets to have died in 1947. Others,
however, believe that he may still be alive in a Soviet
prison.

is enough to handle.

groups. All three rabbinical
associations, as well as three
other lay groups represented
among those arrested are
member agencies of the Na-
tional Conference.
The previous protests here
have been sponsored by the
Washington Board of Rabbis,
in coordination with the Union
of Councils for Soviet Jews,
the other main umbrella Soviet
Jewry organization. Over 130
have been arrested in
Washington since last May by
violating a District of Colum-
bia code that prohibits
demonstrations directly in
front of the Embassy building.
Together with demonstrators
in San Francisco and New
York, over 1,000 people have
been arrested to date, some
500 of them rabbis.
The National Conference
had long withheld endorse-
ment of the arrests, maintain-
ing that breaking the law was
neither necessary nor
justified, especially when the
U.S. Administration is already
sympathetic to the Soviet
Jewish plight.
But disappointment over
Moscow's failure to follow
through on signals that it
would ease its emigration
restrictions, and its continued
harassment of Jewish ac-
tivists, led many of the
member agencies to call for an
"acceleration" of the cam-
paign, William Kaiserling,
Washington director of the
National Conference, told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
At a press conference held
by the demonstrators before
the latest protest, Kaiserling
also announced the initiation
by his organization of an
"agressive public education ef-
fort" to ensure that Jewish
emigration and human rights
are on the agenda of any
future talks between President
Reagan and Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev.
He said the "pre-Summit II"
campaign will be chaired by
Elie Wiesel and will host re-
cent Soviet emigres to Israel
including Shcharansky in
May if his health permits. On a
very tentative agenda being
worked out for Shcharansky
by a group of representatives
from various Soviet Jewry
organizations is the annual
"Solidarity Sunday" rally for
Soviet Jewry, to take place
this year on May 11.

ple Judea Sabbath Services
which begin at 8 p.m. at St.
Catherine's Cultural Center.
Cantor Anne Newman will
chant the music.
The portion, "Tazreya," is a
problematic one as it deals in
detail with the disease of
leprosy. Rabbi Levine will of-
fer several explanations on
how the message of this Torah
portion can be related to
modern life.
As part of services, Lauren
Block, daughter of Alan and
Donna Block, will become a
Bat Mitzvah Rededicant.
Lauren became Bat Mitzvah
last spring and read from the
portion "Tazreya." Tonight,
she will read her Torah portion
again and participate in
reading several prayers of the
Sabbath Service. Lauren is

Galina in Israel they rendez-
voused at the Hecht
Synagogue on Mt. Scopus to
pray. "I hope to meet Cherna
in the same place, some day,"
said Mrs. Goldberg. "Many
people are working so that she
can spend next year in
Jerusalem. Only constant and
consistent public pressure will
force the Soviet Union to
change its treatment of Soviet
Jews."
Hoping to see Cherna's
status raised among the more
than 400,000 Soviet Jews wan-
ting to emigrate, Mrs.
Goldberg added that "time is
of the essence. A concerted
statement of Jewish solidarity
needs to be made now, before
President Reagan and Mikhail
Gorbachev meet again."
Mrs. Goldberg suggested
that letters be written to Con-
gressmen, Senators (especially
Sen. Edward Kennedy, who
has personally intervened on
behalf of Soviet Jews with
some positive results), Presi-
dent and Mrs. Reagan and
Anatoly Dobrynin at the
Soviet Embassy, 1 Andrei
Sakharov Plaza, N.W.,
Washington, DC 20036.
She also said that letters of
support may be written to
Cherna's daughters Galina
Nabati and Irina Tzeitin (c/o
Irina Tzeitin, Minz Street
28/17, Beer Sheva, Israel) and,
of course, to Cherna herself
(Ulitza Votutina 33, Apart-
ment 32, Novosibirsk 64,
USSR).
Noting that the upcoming
Passover holiday reminds
Jews everywhere of the
despair of bondage and the
joys of freedom, Sandra
Goldberg said, "We are set-
ting a place for Cherna at our
Seder table. We cannot be
complacent about our freedom
while refuseniks like Cherna
languish in the Soviet Union."

plight of Soviet Jewry, please

Force, at 832-2120.
