At Iceland Pre-Summit
Reagan Urged to Press
Jewish Rights Issue
Prime Minister Peres
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
President Reagan announced
last Tuesday that he will meet
Soviet leader Mikhail Gor-
bachev in Reykjavik, Iceland,
October 11-12 to prepare for a
summit conference in
Washington.
Secretary of State George
Shultz, who appeared with
Reagan for the White House
announcement of the meeting
last week, said that, as in all
meetings with the Soviet
Union, human rights will be
discussed along with arms con-
trol, bilateral problems and
regional issues. "You can be
sure we are going to keep the
subject of human rights on the
agenda," Shultz said.
Meanwhile, in reacting to
the release of Yuri Orlov, the
62 year-old founder of the
Moscow Helsinki Watch, the
Soviet human rights move-
ment, the National Conference
Shultz: Release of Daniloff, Orlov Plus For Soviet Jewry
By MARLENE GOLDMAN
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Secretary of State George
Shultz said the release last
week of American journalist
Nicholas Daniloff in Moscow
and toe release of Soviet dissi-
dent Yuri Orlov are signs of
hope for Soviet Jewry.
"An American journalist
and a Soviet dissident these
are living symbols of our com-
mitment," Shultz said in
reference to thousands of re-
maining dissidents in the
Soviet Union.
Shultz, speaking at a tenth
anniversary gala of the Jewish
Community Relations Council
of New York, called the
release of Daniloff and Orlov a
"testament to the universality
of our concern with human
rights." He failed any mention
of the simultaneous release in
New York of accused Soviet
spy Gennadi Zakharov.
Both the Daniloff ordeal and
the continued detention of
dissidents have increased ten-
sions between the East and toe
West, according to Shultz, and
threaten global security.
"Security and justice are in-
divisible," Shultz said. "You
can't abrogate one without
diminishing the other."
Continuing with his concern
about security. Shultz called
for a coordinated response
against terrorism, and added
that a strong Israel con-
tributes to worldwide security.
Attorney General Edwin
Meese, who also addressed the
JCRC celebration, urged peo-

on Soviet Jewry welcomed his
release, calling him "a long-
time advocate of human
rights," who 'has suffered
greatly in prison, labor camps
and Siberian exile."
"We are greatly disap-
pointed, however, that the
Soviet Union has refused to
make any significant gestures
to ease the plight of Soviet
Jews," an NCSJ spokesman
said. "Hundreds of refuseniks
continue to live in limbo while
others unjustifiably suffer in
labor camps.
"We hope, therefore, that
progress toward a real summit
will be made during the pre-
summit meeting in Iceland and
that all the brush will be
cleared away. We have con-
fidence that the Administra-
tion is proceeding on its pro-
mise to press the issue of
Jewish rights and emigration
at the summit and to help
secure the immediate transit

David Ben-Gurion: His Centennial Celebration Oct. 16
By RABBI
BERNARD RASKAS
Oct. 16 marks the hundredth
anniversary of the birth of David
Ben-Gurion, one of the greatest
Jews of modern times. His con-
tributions to the Jewish people
and his impact on the world scene
are destined to be remembered for
as long as the human race will en-
dure. Most of us are aware of his
life, and it is hardly possible to do
justice to such a toweling figure in
a brief article. Instead, it would be
more interesting to take his five
favorite biblical verses and use
them as some revealing insights
into his life.
The first verse is from Isaiah

observance of
Yom Kippur.
(45:7): "I, the Lord, do all these
things."
As much as Ben-Gurion
disregarded ritual, he was a deep-
ly rengous man. He believed in
God but felt that ritual was not
necessary because living in toe
land of Israel provided the cement
to keep the Jewish people
together in modern times.
LET ME quote his own words:
"The essence of being a Jew, in
my opinion, is the idea of the Pro-
phets not the Torah, but the
Prophets. They have two ideas:
You must love one single God and
you must lead a normal life. That
is all that matters."
He had tremendous respect for
the natural forces of the universe.
He spent his time cultivating
roses in the Negev, walking the
terrain of Israel, and encouraging
people literally to work in the soil.
One of the loveliest pictures I
have ever seen shows him feeding
a bottle to a newborn lamb. It is
absolutely beautiful, and it really
shows his love and reverence for
the life of the universe.
THE SECOND verse is taken
from Leviticus 19:18 and 33: "You
shall love your neighbor as
yourself. When an alien settles
with you in your land you shall
love him as yourself."
It is very interesting that
although Ben-Gurion was a very
Continued on Page 2

David Ben-Gurion
Continued from Page 1
strong figure, he never used other
than democratic means to press
for his policies. He was elected
Premier of Israel, and never once
did he silence his opposition even
though it was bitter and even
though he had the power to do so.
Although the Arabs were his
adversaries, he never spoke
disrespectfully of them or their
cultures.
It is rather remarkable that
even though he was devoted to the
Jewish people to an unbelievable
degree and worked so hard on
their behalf, he found time to
study other cultures. Consider the
fact that he was a keen student of
the Greek and Eastern
philosophies and used to stand on
his head in a yoga exercise.
In addition to his profound
knowledge of the Bible, he
mastered English, Russian,
Greek, Yiddish, Turkish, French,
Arabic, and at the time of his
death he was studying Spanish.
What an extraordinary human
being.
THE THIRD biblical verse that
he loved was Isaiah 42:6: "I, the
Lord, have called you with
righteous purpose ... I have
formed you and appointed you to
be a covenant to all peoples, a
beacon for the nations."
Ben-Gurion's dedication to the
Jewish people was absolute. It
was he who proclaimed the State
of Israel after two-thousand years
of exile. It was he who built up the
armed might of Israel, and one of
the symbols of this is the fact that
he changed his last name from
Green to Ben-Gurion, which
means "the son of a lion."
It was he who brought
Eichmann to trial to prove "Jews
are not sheep to be slaughtered,
but a people who can hit back."
But even more than this; he
showed himself to be an essential
Jew by his love of the Bible and his
constant study of the Prophets.
Ben-Gurion used to teach the
Bible.
Throughout his life, he focused
all his attention on the Prophets
until he became a prophet himself.
He was his people's revolutionary
and the visionary that gave birth
to their new homeland.
INTERESTINGLY enough,
the New York Times in an
editorial lauded Ben-Gurion,
above all else, for his love of
biblical scholarship. And so he was
committed to the concept of
leading an exemplary, righteous,
and just life. And because he felt
the Jew had a special destiny not
only in the active world but in the
world of learning, he is properly
designated the representative
Jew of modern times.
The fourth passage from the Bi-
ble is taken from the Book of
Micah (2:3): "... nation shall not
lift up sword against nation ."
He used to say, "I consider peace
more important than territories."
He truly loved all men.
The greatest paradox of Ben-
Gurion is that even though he had
to fight all his life he essentially
had the goal of peace. He became
a friend of the great political
figures of the world and always
and forever he pressed them for a
peaceful solution to Israel's pro-
blems. His love of peace was
shown when Israel had its 25th
anniversary parade. Because of
the political situation it had to be
an army event, but he showed up
in a farmer's hat.
ALTHOUGH he was involved in
all the wars of Israel, he never
wore a uniform or decoration. In
fact, so great was his disdain for
formality that he rarely wore a
tie. There was something about
him that was earthy, that was
real, that spoke of the common
man who only wanted to make a
living and live with his neighbors
in peace.
I think that is why in his later
years he returned to Sde Boker in
the Negev desert. He wanted no
honors and he wanted no power.
His desk at his death was piled
with manuscripts, a Bible, a copy
of Plato's philosophy in Greek,
and some Buddhist words.
In his last will and testament, he
indicated that he did not wish to
be buried in any national cemetery
but instead should rest next to his
beloved wife, Paula, in the Negev.
It was as if to say: I want to be
next to the woman I have always
loved, in the soil I have loved, en-
couraging young people to pioneer
in the land that I loved.
BEN-GURION had a fifth
biblical verse which he always car-
ried in his pocket. And when he
took to his final illness, they found
this verse in Hebrew, in his own
handwriting. It constitutes the
closing words of Amos:
"And I will turn the captivity of
my people Israel, and they shall
build the waste cities, and inhabit
them; and they shall plant
vineyards, and drink the wine
thereof; they shall also make
gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
And I will plant them upon their
land, and they shall no more be
plucked up out of their land which
I have given them, saith the Lord
thy God."
Through Ben-Gurion's extraor-
dinary life and work came the
fulfillment of that ancient
prophecy.
Ben-Gurion's first name was
David. And like his namesake,
King David of the Bible, he began
a whole new era in Jewish history.
And so, in time, they will say of
him something that they once said
of another great leader: "From
David unto David, there arose no
one like David."
Israel Seeks Barter
Deal With Poland

JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Israel is entering negotiations
with Poland for a deal by
which it would barter
agricultural produce and elec-
tronic equipment for Polish
coal. Energy Minister Moshe
Shahal has authorized the
talks and the head of Israel's
National Coal Supply Corp.
has been to Warsaw to meet
with Polish officials.
Samples of Polish coal are
presently being examined by
Energy Ministry experts to
see if it meets Israel's needs,
mainly the generation of elec-
tric power. If the tests prove
positive, they may lead to the
biggest trade deal in many
years between Israel and an
Eastern European country.
Israel currently imports coal
from Australia, South Africa
and the U.S. sufficient to meet
its present energy needs. But
they are expected to grow
from the current level of two
million tons a year to 10
million tons by the end of the
century. The worsening inter-
nal situation in South Africa
could jeopardize supplies from
that country.
Meanwhile, Poland is ex-
pected to open its interest sec-
tion in Tel Aviv "within two or
three weeks," according to
diplomatic sources here, and
Israel will open a correspon-
ding interest section in War-
saw at about the same time.

Collaboration Between Israel and Jordan
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel
and Jordan are collaborating
unofficially in a policy to
eliminate PLO influence in the
West Bank which has already
drastically reduced terrorist
activity in.. the territory,
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin disclosed in an interview
published in Maariv last week.
He said the appointment of
local Arab leaders to serve as
mayors of three of the West
Bank's largest towns was part
of that policy and in fact was
undertaken at Jordan's in-
itiative. It was announced that
Abdel Majid E-Zir, Halil Mussa
Halil and Hassan A-Tawil have
been named the mayors of
West Bank PLO Influence to End?
Hebron, Ramallah and El
Bireh respectively, replacing
the Israel Defense Force of
fleers who previously govern-
ed the towns.
RABIN SAID the three ap-
pointees were tacitly approved
by Jordan and agreed to by
Israel after it was ascertained
that they were acceptable to
the local population and had no
connections with the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
This step is part of the ongo-
ing war against terrorism and
strengthening of moderate
elements, Rabin said. He
reported that King Hussein of
Jordan has encouraged
moderate elements in the ter-
ritory and poured money into
circles favorable to his
Hashemite regime.
Rabin said that Israel was
prepared for an upsurge of ter-
rorism in 1984 when Hussein
permitted the opening of PLO
offices in Amman. But Jordan
changed its policy sharply
after Hussein broke with PLO
chief Yasir Arafat last
February.
The PLO offices were closed
and PLO activists were detain-
ed or expelled from Jordan,
Rabin said. The new attitude
and policies of both Jordan and
Israel has resulted in a signifi-
cant reduction of terrorist
attacks.
SINCE FEBRUARY, ter-
rorist activity in the West
Bank fell by 50 percent and
there has been a 70 percent
drop in the number of
casualties attributable to ter-
rorist acts, Rabin said, com-
pared to the same period last
year.
Meanwhile, Gen. Ephraim
Sneh, head of the civil ad-
ministration in the West Bank,
stressed in a radio interview

Peres Witnesses Signing of Tourism Unity Declaration
Prime Minister Peres
As Prime Minister Shimon
Peres of Israel looked on, the
S residents of 40 national
ewish organizations signed a
"Declaration of Jewish Unity"
in support of tourism to Israel,
at a recent meeting of the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish
Organizations.
The declaration states that
the presidents and their
organizations will, "by their
personal presence in Israel this
year, stand in living witness"
to the "imperishable unity" of
the Jewish people. The signing
comes at a time when tourism
to Israel is down more than 50
percent from previous years,
largely due to terrorist ac-
tivities in Europe. Tourism
constitutes 52 percent of
Israel's revenues.

JERUSALEM OTA) -
The Cabinet approved a draft
law to establish a second chair
net on State-run television and
radio which would be open to
private commercial operators.
The Cabinet decided to com-
pensate daily newspapers for
loss of advertising revenue to
commercial broadcasters. The
Israel Broadcasting Authority
will also be compensated for
loss of revenue because of the
expected decrease of paid
public service announcements
on the first channel.

pected that 10 private radio
stations could begin operations
within six months. The second
television channel will take
longer to set up, he said.
mittee headed by Chaim
Kubersky.
The ministerial committee
agreed that five senior Cabinet
Ministers would be in charge
of further implementing the
basic law which established
Jerusalem as the seat of
government. They are the
Premier and Vice Premier, the
Interior Minister, Finance
Minister and Minister of
Economy and Planning.
They will be authorized to
establish by-laws covering all
aspects of the basic law. By so
doing, the declarative status of
the basic law will be
guaranteed and given an ex-
ecutive character.
The ministerial committee
also decided that science-based
industries would be given
preferred status in Jerusalem
with respect to land prices, tax
abatements and grant levels.
In addition, a development
authority will be established to
coordinate the activities of the
government and municipal
companies operating in
Jerusalem.
It will be charged with
preparing long-range plans for
the development of the city. A
company, to be called
"Jerusalem," will be created
as an economic lever to ad-
vance development initiatives.
It will have a capital base and
receive allocations of assets
and State lands.
Oct. 4, marks the 20th anniver-
sary of the reunification of
Jerusalem, the declaration
continues, "We call on every
member of our community,
and on freedom-loving men
and women of every faith, to
join with us in visiting Israel
during the year ahead, thereby
affirming the common
heritage of freedom and
democracy that links the peo-
ple of America with the people
of Israel."
Prime Minister Peres ad-
dressed the group, which con-
sisted of nearly 1,000
representatives from Jewish
organizations around the
United States. Referring to re-
cent terrorist attacks in
France and Turkey, he said,
"There are many groups who
seek their own goals. Each
uses its own methods." He
continued, "Our method of
achieving our mutual goal is
through tourism," concluding
that travel to Israel is
imperative.
Dr. Joseph P. Sternstein,
chairman of the Presidents'
Conference task force on
tourism, called on the group to
"reject the apathy that is evi-
dent in the American Jewish
community" and to stop the
"cataclysmic wave of cancella-
tions" of trips to Israel. Dr.
Sternstein, who presided over
the event, is also the president
of the Jewish National Fund,
responsible for afforestation
and land reclamation in Israel.
Tel Aviv Counterfeit Plant Raided

TEL AVIV (JTA) -
Police raided a small printing
flant here recently and con-
iscated $4.5 million in
counterfeit U.S. Dollars. A
37-year-old Ashdod resident,
alleged leader of the counter-
fiet ring, was arrested with
two confederates at the plant.
Police said they were caught
red-handed. Two other
suspects were arrested at their

The arrests capped a five-

More Terrorism
An authority on terrorism suspects Yasir Arafat's Force
17 not the Abu Nidal group may have perpetrated the
attacks on the Pan Am airliner in Karachi and the
synagogue in Istanbul last month. Yonah Alexander, of
Georgetown University's Center for Strategic and Interna-
tional Studies, told a Washington press conference recently
that both assaults occurred on tell-tale "anniversary
dates."
The massacre in Pakistan took place on the 14th anniver-
sary of the killing of Israeli athletes at the Munich Olym-
pics, and the murders in Turkey coincided with the date of
the hijacking of four international airliners to Jordan in
1970. Allies of Arafat within the PLO perpetrated the
Munich attack; George Habash's Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine, a PLO component, staged the
multiple hijackings.
Alexander acknowledged that Abu Nidal "has been ac-
tive in Pakistan in the past and has an infrastructure
there" and that in the case of Istanbul "the footsteps again
lead to Abu Nidal," but he cautioned against overlooking
the importance of the dates. The Karachi terrorists' de-
mand for the release of associates held on Cyprus
presumably the members of Arafat's Force 17 convicted of
killing three Israelis at Laraaca might have been
genuine.
Alexander spent five weeks in Israel, southern Lebanon,
the West Bank and Gaza Strip this summer. He noted that
the period from Sept. 16 through Oct. 20, the first month
on the Moslem lunar calendar, includes a week of mourning
for Ali, the original Shi'ite martyr, and several modern
"anniversary" dates. He warned that it might be punc-
tuated by more terrorist acts.
Overall, he said the aim of states which sponsor ter-
rorism, including Syria, Libya and Iran, remains to drive
the West first from Lebanon and, if possible, from in-
fluence in the Middle East. Indirectly backing these coun-
tries is the Soviet Union, whose embassy in Beirut again
has become quite active.
He said he knew of the Lebanese Communist Party
recruiting Shi'ites from southern Lebanon for terrorist
training in Eastern Europe or Russia. "The first rule of the
Middle East is that there are very strange bedfellows," he
added. In addition, non-ideological mercenaries, Arab and
non-Arab, sometimes contract with known terrorist
groups.
Alexander said he met a leading PLO figure in Gaza and
"it was clear that he was following the Arafat line on the
surface: (talk of) diplomacy, negotiations, a PLO state on
the West Bank and Gaza. But 'underground,' Force 17 has
operations going on all the time." Arafat loyalists have in-
tensified efforts to "eliminate" Palestinian Arab
moderates, he said, and Sunni Moslem fundamentalism is
spreading.
Alexander urged the closing of PLO offices in Europe,
Washington and elsewhere as one step "to reduce the risk"
of terrorism. He said the United States and other Western
countries should make "pariah states" of countries suppor-
ting terrorism, cutting off diplomatic and trade relations
with them. "Basically, terrorism is a direct assault on
human rights" and the West no longer should tolerate be-
ing victimized.

NEW YORK (JTA) -
Federal and local law enforce-
ment agencies in Tidewater,
Va., have launched an in-
vestigation into a series of
bomb threats against an ex-
hibition of Holocaust artifacts
and photographs at the
Tidewater Jewish Federation.
At the same time, local police
have stepped up security at the
exhibit, "Auschwitz: A Crime
Against Humanity," which
opened Sept. 8 and is schedul-
ed to run a month. The exhibi-
tion has been seen by at least
500-800 people daily.
IN ADDITION to the bomb
threats, the exhibit was
picketed a week ago by a
group said to be affiliated with
a white supremacist, anti-
Semitic group, the Christian
Identity Movement. About a
dozen demonstrators
distributed blatantly anti-
Semitic leaflets with a cartoon
deriding the Holocaust as a lie
and portraying Jews in control
of all forms of the media. It
was captioned "How long can
the Jews perpetrate the
Holocaust myth? Not much
longer!"
The leaflets bore two dif-
ferent addresses, Kingdom
News Crusades for Truth, in
Chesapeake, Va., and Lord's
Covenant Church, America's
Promise, Phoenix, Az. Both
are known headquarters for an
extreme, rightwing, pseudo-
Christian movement that pro-
motes belief in the "Israel
identity of the Saxon race"
and espouses paramilitary tac-
tics against Jews, Catholics,
blacks and the American
government.
THE IDENTITY movement
also vilifies Christian Fun-
damentalist supporters of
Israel, chiefly the Rev. Jerry
Falwell and Pat Robertson,
who are based in the same
Virginia area as the Tidewater
Federation.
According to A. Robert
Gast, executive director of the
United Jewish Federation of
Tidewater, the 15,000-member
Jewish community has receiv-
ed much support from the non-
Jewiah community there. A
Low Water Level
Closes Pipeline
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVTV (JTA) The
Mekorot water company shut
down its main pipeline to cen-
tral Israel and the Negev late
last month because the water
level in the Sea of Galilee is at
a near record low. It is the first
time the pipeline was closed
since its completion more than
30 years ago.
The Sea of Galilee, Israel's
main reservoir, is short about
a half billion cubic meters of
water due to several years of
sub-normal rainfall, the na-
tional water company said.
The surface level is more than
10 feet lower than average and
large stretches of lake bed are
visible.
Mekorot said it hoped to
resume pumping after the
winter rainy season. Mean-
while, it will provide minimum
water supplies to farmers and
drinking water from local
wells.
rally was held last month at
the Jewish Community
Center, site of the exhibit and
of tile Federation and Jewish
Family Services. The convoca-
tion, endorsed by the local
press, brought together civic
and religious leaders of the
Tidewater area. Father
Thomas Nee, of the Blessed
Sacrament Church, addressed
the rally, saying, "I wish to
decry and deplore the insanity
and the cruelty of the violence
exhibited here" which
demonstrated "unAmerican,
woefully ignorant and
thoroughly unChristian
behavior ... It is frightening
to realize that the diabolically
evil shadow of the deeds and
spirit of Nazi hatred so
poignantly recalled by the
chilling exhibit can
reappear..."
GAST, in a telephone inter-
view, said that people are
"concerned but not frighten-
ed. ... Our absolute horror in
seeing this demonstration in
Norfolk, Va., reinforced our
determination to make the
Auschwitz exhibit more
available to the community at
large." He said the Jewish
Federation would double its ef-
fort to "get the good people of
Tidewater to come out and
stand up to the demon-
strators. The exhibit was
first seen at the United
Nations last winter by 70,000.
The UN showing was organiz-
ed by the Auschwitz State
Museum and the International
Auschwitz Committee. In
April, the United Jewish Ap-
peal signed an historic agree-
ment with the Polish govern-
ment providing for a two-year
nationwide tour of the death
camp artifacts and related
documents. Among the ar-
ticles on display are suitcases,
human hair, oven parts and
135 photographic panels.
Tidewater is the first of its
stops throughout the U.S.
Gast said attendance at the ex-
hibit has risen sharply since
the demonstration and bomb
threats, and that people com-
ing to see the exhibit included
groups from universities and
churches, including black
Pentecostalists.

Morse Geriatric Center's
Residents Cast Their Spell
.
The Joseph L. Morse
Geriatric Center has the
distinction of having in its
midst the first and second
place winners of the Palm
Beach County Home and
General Care Facility's 1986
Spelling Bee held Sept. 24, at
the 45th Street facility in West
Palm Beach.
The first place winner of the
spelling bee is Thelma
Newman, resident and local
media personality, who spelled
the word "perpetuity" correct-
ly. For her winning efforts in
competing against 29 other
contestants, Mrs. Newman
was awarded a Hibel painting.
Second place in the contest
was garnered by resident
Anita Anton. Mrs. Anton
received her choice of a color
television set. Mrs. Anton may
have finished second in the
spelling bee but earlier this
year the Florida Association of
Homes for the aging (FAHA)
selected her as recipient for its
1986 Volunteer of the Year
Award.
The County Home Facility
invited 15 area health care
facilities to participate in the
spelling bee. Each facility then
selected two representatives
who studied a 200-word list in
preparation for the event.
An audience of over 150
loudly supported their
favorites as the contest nar-
rowed to the final heat and
spellers from the Morse
Geriatric Center closed the
lead against their nearest com-
petitors from the County
Home. The final tally was
taken and third and fourth
places went to Catherine
Beach and Anne Gamble,
residents of the County Home
facility.
The spelling bee has become
an annual event and plans are
for the contest to be held at the
Morse Geriatric Center next
year.

last month when Rabbi Meir
Kahane and followers of his
extremist Kach Party invaded
the municipality offices,
smashed windows, overturned
furniture and threatened the
clerks.
Premier Shimon Peres, the
principal speaker, had difficul-
ty making himself heard over
the shouts of hecklers. Most
were supporters of the right-
wing opposition Tehiya Party
who had a permit to
demonstrate and did so noisily
but peacefully. The violence
came from Kach.
The town on Israel's coast
south of Tel Aviv is in ferment
over the fatal stabbing of one
of its residents, Haim Azran,
in the Gaza marketplace Satur-
day (Sept. 27). His funeral,
scheduled for Sunday, was
postponed at the request of
local police who feared clashes.
MOHAMMED WAS the
father of King Hassan, the
present ruler of Morocco, with
whom Peres met last July.
Peres reminded the crowd that
the late monarch had befriend-
ed Jews during World War II
and at other times. But a
historian of the Moroccan
Jewish community claims
Mohammed signed Nazi racist
laws at Hitler's order when his
country was administered by
the collaborationist Vichy
regime.
Peres referred to Azran's
murder, noting that it followed
a recent attempt on the life of
Hassan by Palestinian ter-
rorists. "We shall not allow
PLO people in Gaza or PLO
people in Morocco to kill the
peace process," Peres said. He
told the hecklers, "Peace is
built on love of country, not
hatred of Arabs. It (the square)
can serve as a center for per-
manent dialogue between the
different peoples."
Tehiya MK Gerahon Shafat
told reporters his party ob-
jected to honoring King
Mohammed because "To this
day I have not heard of naming
a square in Morocco in honor
of Ben-Gurion or any other
Zionist leader." He said such
"gestures" to the West would
bring no benefits.

was recently in Israel, describ-

Israeli military on how to fight

tremely impressed by the
methods the Israelis employed
to respond to a terrorist
attack.
'Mosaic' Opens Season

sponsored TV program,
'Mosaic,' airing on Sunday,
Oct. 12, 9:30 a.m., on Channel
5, will highlight the United
Way of Palm Beach County,
Inc. Host Barbara Gordon will
feature the Jewish Community
Center, a United Way agency,
and the Retired Senior
Volunteer Program (RSVP), a

Mrs. Gordon and the camera
crew visited these community
services to record the ex-
periences of many of the par-
ticipants and to talk to the peo-
ple in charge of the programs.
At the JCC she spoke with
Jerome Melman, Executive
Director; Jean Rubin, Director
of the JCC's Comprehensive
Senior Service Center; and
Gail Kressel, Director of the
Pre-school. In addition parents
of children in the pre-school,
senior citizens enjoying a
Kosher meal, and volunteers
who help serve the meals were
also interviewed about the
vital services that are provided
by the Center.
At RSVP Mrs. Gordon spoke
with Executive Director Cy
Kennedy.
Retired persons 60 and older
are eligible for the program.
RSVP recruits, interviews and
places seniors as volunteers at
non-profit social service and
governmental agencies, and

raising organization responsi-
ble for conducting the annual
community fund drive cam-
paign for 48 participating and
member agencies that provide
family, health, child care,
youth, and direct services to
Palm Beach County.

Helping People
Family Problems Are Not a Disgrace
A personal view
from the Jewish Family
and Children'8 Service

(All case names mentioned in
these articles are fictitious;
client information at Jewish
Family and Children's Service
is held in the strictest
confidence.)
Sometimes persons who
have been referred to a
counseling service by school
personnel, work supervisors,
or doctors arrive at the agency
just plain furious. "What do
those people mean by telling
me we have a family pro-
blem?" they may ask. "Sure
Adam has been getting terri-
after being told by a teacher
that her handwriting could

or
looked rather sloppy. Susie's
reaction was obviously way out
of proportion to the
seriousness of the situation.
The teacher felt that there
might be some other problem
which Susie's parents may
treated at home and at school
(the counselor also discussed
the matter with the teacher),
turned the whole situation
around. With less criticism and
more praise, Susie blossomed.
The crying^ spells have stop-
have been able to explain. That ped, and she is making fewer
is why she suggested a visit to mistakes,
a counseling service.
Susie's mother indicated
that she hoped none of her
neighbors find out "that

problems. We don't... we are
Meanwhile, Mrs. Levine has
learned that even the best of
parents sometimes can use
some help and understanding
of a trained outsider who may
see destructive family patterns
that can be overlooked by
a fine family," she added.

have a good family life. No one
gets drunk; we don't beat the
children (or even yell at them
very often). We earn our way.
We live in a good neighbor-
hood. So how could we possibly
be responsible for Adam's
troubles?"
The counselor's first job in
such a situation is to explain,
as gently as possible, that hav-
ing a family problem is not a
disgrace. The fact that there
are difficulties does not mean
that the parents are can-
didates for the divorce court.
It doesn't mean they are
socially undesirable. It doesn't
mean they have failed their
children. It simply means that,
like in most families, some of
the time, something has
disturbed the equilibrium of
the family unit. Often it may
be something that they didn't
even realize had happened and
that, in another family might
have caused no problem at all.
But families are made up of
people, each one an individual
and different from every other
family member and every
other person in the world. A
snag in a relationship that
undermines the emotional
security of one youngster
might not even be noticed by
'another, although it may affect
the way the whole family unit
is functioning.
So a referral to a family
agency is not some kind of
judgment of the family's
worth. It's much more like the
suggestion to a business that a
management study might be in
order if, for some unknown
reason, the profits drop. If it
turns out that the filing system
is poorly designed, there will
be a reorganization of the fil-
ing system. However, no one is
going to close up shop
altogether.
In a family, no one is going
to be disgraced or even blamed
if communication between
various family members has
somehow become distorted, or
has even broken down. The
communication system will
hopefully be reinforced or
reorganized, and everyone will
be the better for it.
Mrs. Levine was just the
kind of client we had been
discussing. She had been refer-
red to Family Counseling
because her daughter, Susie,
had broken into uncontrollable
sobs several times in school,
service, no criticism is express-
ed or implied; it is merely a
suggestion that professional
help might improve the func-
tioning of a family.
It turned out that Susie was
indeed a rather sensitive child.
But the youngster was also
caught in a vicious circle of ac-
tion and reaction. Every time
she made a mistake, she was
criticized. Every time she was
criticized, she became more
worried about making
mistakes. And, the more she
worried, the more mistakes
she made. Her brother, Eric,
on the other hand, could just
laugh such criticism off.
As Mrs. Levine discussed

Hermann Klenner, former
Nazi, has been recommended
to become President of the UN
Commission on Human Rights.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center
is working to prevent such an
outrage.
The California State
Assembly passed a unanimous
Resolution addressed to the
President and Congress call-
ing for a statue honoring
Haym Salomon, to be erected
as a national monument within
the Capitol building or on
Capitol grounds in
Washington. Salomon was a
Polish Jew who arrived in New
York in 1772. At the outbreak
of the Revolutionary War, he
was a major fiscal agent and
supporter of the hard-pressed
Colonial forces and gave much
of his personal fortune to sup-
port the American cause and
the ragtag army which waged
and won for all time the rignts
and liberties we hold dear.
Salomon was captured by the
British and died as a result of
illness contracted during his
imprisonment.
Anatoly Natan Sharansky
will be presented with a silver-
bound Bible signed by more
than 400 members of
England's both Houses of
Parliament. The gift, original-
ly intended while Sharansky
was still in a Russian prison,
was planned to be handed to
the Soviet delegation at the
Helsinki Agreement Review
Conference. But, the Soviet
delegation refused to pass the
Bible to Mr. Sharansky.
Ben Gurion once referred to
Technion as the cornerstone of
the State of Israel. Today,
Technion's dynamic existence
vibrates with fresh spirit and
renewed vision and its prestige
is acknowledged throughout
the academic world. It is
Israel's Think Tank. Eighty
percent of Israel's scientists
and Engineers are Technion
graduates. Its research pro-
jects blaze new paths in In-
dustry, Agriculture, Defense,
Energy, Cosmic Ray research,
Bio-medical engineering, com-
puter science, Robots, etc.
Technion's contributions are
vital to Israel's security and
economic survival. It also plays
a unique role in aiding emerg-
ing States of Africa and Asia
and in other countries of the
world.

Members of the Japanese
Makuya sect make annual
pilgrimages to Israel where
they live and study in order to
return to their homeland and
teach Hebrew there. Members
have close ties with Kibbutzim.
Their passion and devotion to
Israel is evidenced in Makuya
Centers in Japan where they
are active in public relations
programs in behalf of Israel,
despite Japan's coldly correct
relations with the Jewish
State. There are additional
Makuya Centers in Los
Angeles, San Francisco, Tulsa
and Vancouver. A Makuya
member, when asked if the
Makuya wished to become
Jews, replied: "We are not
worthy of it. Perhaps, after
1,000 years of study and ex-
posure to the spirit and
teachings of the people of the
Bible, we might, we might be
ready for it.
The most expensive of
spices, saffron, will become
more accessible to the public.
Hebrew University has
developed a technique for
growing saffron which will
permit mechanized harvesting.
Traditional methods of cultiva-
tion require considerable
labor. Saffron has been used in
perfumes and in medicines in
ancient China and medieval
Europe. The spice is known to
contain a heart stimulant and
is said to reduce
arteriosclerosis.
Since the Cuban revolution,
85 percent of the country's
Jewish population emigrated.
This, plus a decaying com-
munal infrastructure, means a
generation has been lost.
However, through the years of
political turbulence, the Cuban
Jewish community maintained
membership in the World
Jewish Congress. Havana
presently has no rabbi.
Visiting Rabbis are allowed
and the community is permit-
ted to send Jewish students
abroad, including Israel, to
receive religious instruction.
Moisis Asis, head of the Co-
ordinating Commission of the
Jewish community of Cuba
stated he was six years old at
the time of the revolution and
never received a formal Jewish
education. Self-motivated
about things Jewish, when he
first read from Torah, he knew
"there was no contradiction
between Judaism and the most
progressive philosophies and
thoughts throughout history
and in our time.
All over Israel, Scrabble's
the thing. The game has
become the latest craze.
English-speaking residents
armed with dictionaries and
determination are pitting their
wits against players of all
levels and ages. From Rosh
Hanikra in the North to Beer-
sheba in the South, members
meet at Scrabble clubs to do
battle at kibbutzim, hotels and
community centers.
A new magazine envisioned
as an intellectual rallying
point for the liberal Jewish
viewpoint, made its national
debut. The first issue of "Tik-
kun," published in Oakland,
California, is the brainchild of
two Torah-observant Jews.
"Tikkun" in Hebrew means to
mend, repair or transform.
The magazine hopes to provide
a voice for Jews and non-Jews
who are still moved by the
radical spirit of the Prophets.
Among its 52 editorial board
members are 17 Rabbis in-
cluding top leaders of the Con-
servative and Reform
movements.
Israel needs Soviet Jewry

400,000 Soviet Jews have re-
quested emigration visas.
Severe hardships ensue as a
result of emigration applica-
tions. Some refuseniks have
waited up to 15 years for visas
and have been issued "final

will never be able to leave the

ed for army service long after
their draft age. "Tip" O'Neill,

Shamir Meets with Ivory Coast FM
By MARGIE OLSTER
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Israeli Foreign Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir met with Ivory
Coast Foreign Minister Si-
meon Ake late last month and
asked him to intervene with
other African countries to
recognize Israel. It was the
first meeting between the two
Foreign Ministers since both
countries formally resumed
diplomatic ties a few days
earlier when Ivory Coast
reopened its Embassy in
Jerusalem.
Shamir told Ake that Israel
is ready to increase aid to
Ivory Coast. To date, Israel
has provided only agricultural
and medical assistance to that
country. But Shamir's
spokesman, Avi Pazner, in-
dicated that Israel is not will-
ing to provide other types of
assistance, presumably
military aid.
Ivory Coast broke diplomatic
relations with Israel after the
Yom Kippur War in 1973. The
two countries agreed to

By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
An Orthodox woman has
challenged the religious
establishment for her right to
serve on the local religious
council in Yeruham, southern
Israel, to which she was ap-
pointed several months ago.
Lea Shakdiel, 35, a school
teacher active in public affairs,
was nominated to the religious
council by the local authority
on which she serves as Labor
Party councilor. But the ap-
pointment was blocked by the
Religious Affairs Ministry
which informed her that it was
"not in the realm of possibili-
ty" for a woman to fill such a
post.
Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi
Avraham Shapira agreed and
indicated that he would issue a
halachic ruling if necessary in
the case. But Shakdiel decided
to fight.
She noted that religious
councils are in fact lay bodies
which do not draw their legal
authority from halacha,
religious law. She added that
as an observant woman she at-
tends religious services and
has found their standards
often to be deplorable.
Therefore, she said, it is her
duty to serve on the religious
council.
The councils function
alongside municipalities and
other local authorities. They
are responsible for providing
and supervising religious in-
frastructures including
synagogues, mikvas and
kashrut, usually in consulta-
tion with the local rabbinates.
They are funded jointly by
the government and the local
authorities The latter
nominate some of the
members. Others are
nominated by the rabbinate
and the Religious Affairs
Minister.
There have been woman
nominees in the past, in
Jerusalem and Haifa, but the
nominations were withdrawn
under pressure from the
religious establishment.
Shakdiel has made clear she
will not withdraw. She said she
would appeal to a standing
committee comprised of the
Prime Minister and the
Religious Affairs and Interior
Ministers. If she loses there,
she will take her case to the
Supreme Court.
Park for Wallenberg Dedicated
SASKATOON (JTA) A
park located behind the Jewish
community center/synagogue
was dedicated as Raoul
Wallenberg Park during
Holocaust Awareness Week
this past summer.
According to The Canadian
Jewish Times, the park is a
joint project. B'nai B'rith pro-
vided several thousand dollars
seed money and this Canadian
city will maintain the park.
Wallenberg is credited with
saving 100,000 Hungarian
Jews from the Nazis when he
headed a special section of the
Swedish legation in Budapest
during World War II. He was
arrested by the Soviets in 1945
and his fate remains unknown.

BALTIMORE (JTA) -
The Administration's recent
decision to funnel American
aid to the West Bank through
Jordan shows that President
Reagan's 1982 peace plan for
the Middle East "is very much
alive," the outgoing president
of the Zionist Organization of
America warned in a message
to delegates here for the
ZOA's 85th national
convention.
Aleck Resnick of Baltimore
said the ZOA would campaign
"vigorously" against the
"flawed concepts behind the
Reagan Plan, which he said
"virtually assigns Judaea and
Samaria to Jordan."
Some 600 delegates from all
sections of the country are tak-
ing part in the convention,
which began recently in the
Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel.
The ZOA leader acknowledg-
ed that "we are living under
one of the most pro-Israel Ad-
ministrations in history. Never
before have there been so
many strategically important
agreements between
Washington and Jerusalem.
We are proud of U.S.-Israeli
cooperation on the Strategic
Defense Initiative, the Israel-
based Voice of America
transmitter, the Free Trade
Agreement and the possibility
that Israel may enjoy
privileges equal to those of
America's NATO allies." But
he cautioned the convention
delegates not to fall prey to "a
Exit Visas for Three Cancer Stricken Soviet Jews?
'
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Three Soviet Jews seeking
treatment for cancer in the
West have received or will
receive exit visas for that
purpose, it was reported at a
meeting ol the Union ot coun-
cils for Soviet Jews at the
Westin Hotel here last week.
The information came from
Jewish sources in the USSR
and has not been confirmed by
the U.S. Administration or in
any other quarters. Also un-
confirmed is speculation that
the visas may be part of a deal
between the U.S. and Soviet
Union which resulted in the
release of Nicholas Daniloff,
the Moscow correspondent of
U.S. News and World Report
who was arrested last month
on charges of spying for the
U.S. Daniloff flew to
Frankfurt, West Germany,
Monday (Sept. 29).
The persons seeking visas
are two couples, Benjamin and
Tanye Bogomolny and Naum
and Inna Meiman, and Ben-
jamin Charney. Charney,
Tanye Bogomolny and Inna
Meiman have been diagnosed
to have cancer. Benjamin
Bogomolny and Naum Meiman
would accompany their
spouses.
Sources at the Soviet Jewry
meeting here said there was no
clear relationship between the
promised visas and the
Daniloff case. The visas may
have been granted in response
to appeals by Western physi-
cians on behalf of the cancer
victims, according to Glenn
Richter, national coordinator
of the Student Struggle for
Soviet Jewry (SSSJ), who is at-
tending the meeting.
It was learned, meanwhile,
that another Soviet Jew, Se-
myon Borozinsky of Len-
ingrad, has been sentenced to
five months' forced labor for
refusing to testify at the trial
earlier this year of Jewish ac-
tivist Vladimir Lifshitz who
was sentenced to three years
at a labor camp.
Program for Unaffiliated
Interfaith Couples
The Southeast Council of the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations is sponsoring
an eight week program for
unaffiliated interfaith couples.
The forum considers concerns
such as relationships within
the extended family, holiday
celebrations, and raising
children. The group is design-
ed to provide a supportive at-
mosphere and to enable the
participants to share with
others who are in similar cir-
cumstances. It will also en-
courage dialogue between
partners concerning aspects of
Jewish life. The cost is $60 per
couple and advance registra-
tion is required. It will take
place at: Temple Israel, 1901
North Flagler Drive, West
Palm Beach, FL 33407, on
Thursday evening*, beginn-
ing on Oct. 23, 7:30-9:30 p.m.

Israel Downgrades Vienna Office
VIENNA (JTA) Israel reportedly has decided not
to replace its Ambassador in Vienna when the current en-
voy, Michael Elizur, retires shortly. Instead, it will leave its
Embassy in the hands of a Charge d'Affaires, a significant
downgrading of Israeli diplomatic representation in
Austria.
JERUSALEM'S DECISION is clearly a sign of its
deep displeasure over the election of Kurt Waldheim to the
Austrian Presidency last July after a bitter campaign dur-
ing which massive evidence of Waldheim's Nazi past was
uncovered. A new Ambassador would have to present his
credentials to Waldheim, a diplomatic ceremony unaccep-
table to Israel under current circumstances.
false sense of security."
"No administration lasts
forever," Resnik said. "It is
important to develop a bipar-
tisan approach in Washington
that would make us beholden
to no one party. We must
underscore trie common pur-
poses and goals of our country
and its only sister democracy
in the Middle East. We must
also make clear that a strong
and secure Israel is in
America's best interests not
just the interest of American
Jews."
Resnick, who is completing
two two-year terms as head of
the ZOA, said the organization
would oppose all U.S. arms
sales to Arab states at war
with Israel and would combat
"the continuing perception
that there is somehow a dif-
ference between Arab radicals
and soiled Arab moderates,
even though their end goal is
the destruction of Israel"

Negev Settlers Hope VOA Transmitter
Will Stimulate Economy
By GIL SEDAN
IDAN, Negev (JTA) -
The several hundred families
of this moahav in the Arava
region of the Negev and others
in the surrounding area are
waiting in tense anticipation
for work to begin on the Voice
of America Radio transmitters
to be located here.
The $380-million project,
agreed to by Israel and the
U.S. last year, will bring cash,
jobs and an infusion of new set-
tlers to this economically haTd-
pressed, underpopulated
region of Israel. According to
Ulan Oren, head of the Mid-
Arava Regional Council, it is
an opportunity that comes
"only once in a generation, or
perhaps only once every 100
years.'
"It is important that such an
opportunity does not slip
away," Oren said. But he and
the other residents of the
region are keeping their
fingers crossed.
THEY HAVE been disap-
pointed in the past. When the
Israel Defense Force pulled
out of Sinai in 1982 under
terms of the peace treaty with
Egypt, there was much talk of
how the Negev and the Arava
region in particular would
develop with the army and its
infrastructure deployed there.
A bright future was forecast
for settlements such as
Yeroham and Dimona. But the
development towns in the
Negev are worse off
economically now. They are
the main victims of Israel's
economic crisis.
The decision to build the
VOA transmitters in the
Arava region is seen as a
chance for recovery. Of the
$380-million budget, $300
million will be invested in
equipment and the rest in
labor. Construction is ex-
pected to take from three to
five years.
THE LOCAL residents
want to be certain that the in-
vestment will be used to im-
prove the region. About 300
workers will be employed to
build the transmitters. Once in
operation, they will provide
about 130 jobs and, by agree-
ment with the Americans, all
but seven will go to Israelis.
"An addition of 130 families
to an area which now numbers
380 families is a real revolu-
tion," Oren told the co-
chairmen of the Jewish
Background Report
Premiership Rotation
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
rotation of power this month
affects only Premier Shimon
Peres and Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir, who are
scheduled to exchange jobs.
The rest of the Labor-Likud
Cabinet will remain intact with
each Minister retaining his
present portfolio, unless some
Ministers balk.
The rotation is part of the
Labor-Likud unity coalition
agreement reached in 1984. It
will be carried out according to
law which requires the entire
Cabinet to resign along with
the Prime Minister. The basic
formalities will be observed.
Peres will submit his
resignation. President Chaim
Herzog will go through the
statutory consultations with
all coalition parties. The latter
will ritually recommend that
Shamir become Prime
Minister and Herzog will ask
him formally to take office.
Shamir will appoint a
government identical to the
existing one, apart from his
exchange with Peres. Some
changes are possible. Health
Minister Mordechai Gur and
Gad Yaacobi Minister of
Economics and Planning, both
Laborites, have intimated they
would not serve under Shamir.
Should they leave the Cabinet,
Shamir, in consultation with
(Peres, would propose
iaudi Big Lie
A Saudi newspaper has ac-
cused Israel of plotting the ter-
rorist attack on the Istanbul
synagogue. Al-Riyad reported
that "the Zionist group that
directly contributed to the at-
tacks on the Jews during the
Nazi regime in Germany for
| the sake of higher objectives
will not hesitate to strike at a
Jewish synagogue."
successors.
On the Likud side, some
Ministers want Yitzhak Modai
to be reappointed Finance
Minister, a portfolio he was
forced to give up earlier this
year in an altercation with
Peres. Labor objects to this.
Modai is presently Minister of
Justice, having exchanged
portfolios with Moshe Nissim.
Agency's Settlement Depart-
ment, Nissim Zvilli and
Matitvahu Drobless, who
visited Idan recently with a
group of experts.
Zvilli said the workers must
live here. "If we allow them
not to, much of the advantage
of the project will be lost."
Oren suggested using the ex-
isting infrastructure for con-
struction crews rather than
building a new work camp. The
money saved, he said, could
build a new field school and
other institutions. The Jewish
Agency meanwhile is trying to
persuade Jewish construction
workers in the U.S. to settle in
Israel and join the VOA
project.
A PROBLEM has arisen
between Israel and the U.S.
over the contractors. The
Americans have rejected an
Israeli demand that only
Israeli contractors be
employed, Amnon Neubach,
economic advisor to Premier
Shimon Peres, informed
leaders of Israel's construction
industry. He said the
Americans will allow Israeli
firms to bid for the job which is
estimated at $50-$70 million.
But there is concern that the
Israelis may not be able to
compete with tenders by
American firms.
Drobless reviewed the pro-
blems of the area which make
the VOA project so vital to it.
Only 4,000 people live on a
150-kilometer-long strip. Liv-
ing costs are higher than in the
rest of Israel because of the
region's isolation. In Arava, a
family needs an annual income
of 25,000 Shekels compared to
a 15,000-Shekel average in
other parts of the country.
Because of these needs, the
Negev section of the Settle-
ment Department allocates 40
percent of its budget to Arava.

Support Groups Help
Alleviate Pain of Divorce
Maneuvers Before Summit
Moscow has told the leaders
of rival Palestinian factions to
mend their fences before the
November summit between
Soviet leader Mikhail Gor-
bachev and U.S. President
Ronald Reagan. A newspaper
in the United Arab Emirates
reports that the Soviets would
like to see a unified PLO which
backs an international con-
ference on the Middle East in
time for the superpower
meeting.
Arafat, praised the Prague
statement as a positive step
toward Palestinian unity and a
prelude to a Palestine National
Council meeting later this
year.
Meanwhile, the United
States is reportedly putting
"From what you see on
television and in the movies,
you'd think that getting a
divorce was some yellow brick
road to personal growth and
happiness; all the stories of
personal freedom and hap-
piness; the joys of being single,
the good sex life out there; the
jokes about falling off the mar-
riage merry-go-round and hav-
ing fun. The great new life.
"But ask someone who's
been through it. There is
nothing funny or easy about
divorce. It is a savage, emo-
tional journey. Where it ends,
you don't know for a long
time." (From the prologue of
Crazy Times Surviving
Divorce, by Abigail Trafford,
1982)
Divorce is painful for the en-
tire family. Jewish Family and
Children's Service would like
to help by announcing the up
coming formation of a single
parent support group. Support
groups can be extremely effec-
tive in helping single parents
cope with anger, guilt,
loneliness, rejection, and
contact Mr. Grunther, at
684-1991, for pre-screening
and pre-registration. The fee
for the six session group will
be $25.
Barbara Friedlander, MSW,
will be leading a group for
children of divorce, at the
Jewish Community Center
Preschool, once again this
Fall. This group has been enor-
mously successful in the past.
Mrs. Friedlander uses games
and exercises to assist these
children in discussing the im-
pact of divorce on their lives. If
parents attending the Single
Parent Group have children
that could benefit from a
Children of Divorce Group, an
additional support group will
be formed. Jewish Family and
Children's Service staff will be
available to speak to organiza-
tions and groups about the
problems of single parents,
upon request. Please contact

MSW, at 684-1991.

Yom Kippur Customs
Yom Kippur, the most awe-
inspiring of the High Holidays,
occurs this year on Monday,
Oct. 13 and is ushered in the
previous evening.
Yom Kippur is the culmina-
tion of the entire High Holiday
period. After this, hopefully,
the old year is ended and the
new one begun.
There was once a custom
called kapparot. It is practiced
now only by very Orthodox
Jews on the day before Yom
Kippur. It entails swinging a
chicken around one's head as a
means or symbol of expiating
sins. The chicken is then
slaughtered and given to the
poor for the final meal that
evening. A more popularly
observed remnant of this
custom exists in the form of ty-
ing money in a handkerchief
(many people give a "hai"
18) and swinging it around the
head three times while saying:
"This is my change, this is
my compensation, this is my
redemption. This cock is going
to be killed, and I shall enter
upon a long, happy and
peaceful life."
There is a meditation before
this which is symbolically
repeated three times.
Followng this whole process,
the money should be given to
tzedakhah.
Before all holidays, it is good
to give tzedakhah, but it is par-
ticularly important to do so
before Yom Kippur.
Tzedakhah along with prayer
and returning represents a
central theme and the
moral/spiritual quality for the
day (and, by extension,
throughout one s life).
The meal immediately
preceding Yom Kippur should
be big and joyous. In fact, this
is often regarded as an obliga-
tion. The hallot baked for this
meal are often formed in the
shape of birds with wings or
have this figure on top of
them. This symbolizes both the
aspiration and opportunity of
man to attain the level of the
angels, and the sheltering pro-
tection of God (see Isaiah
31:5).
Yom Kippur itself is marked
by physical abstinence. This is
regarded ambivalently. Some
say that the abstinence is for
the sake of physical mortifica-
tion and purgation; others say
that on Yom Kippur man is so
close to G-d he can forget
about his body (or vice versa
through forgetting the body,
man can concentrate on the
spiritual all the more intensely
and gloriously).
The Maariv Sciatica, during
which Kol Nidre is chanted, is
begun before sunset. Unlike
any other Maariv Service, the
tallit is worn. It is also
customary to wear the white
kitel as symbol of the purity
(Isaiah 1:18) and equality of all
people before God.
The greeting used during
this day is "Gemar Hatimah
Tovah May you be finally
sealed for good (in the Book of
Life)," although some people
consciously avoid using this
phrase because it implies that
the good verdict is hanging un-
til the final moments.
Although the Book of Jonah
is read at Minhah, some have
the interesting custom of
reading the Book of Job (other-
wise left out of the synagogue
reading cycle) during the
earlier part of the afternoon.
The final element the
ultimate culmination of the en-
tire process begun a month
and a half earlier in Elul is
the loud, long piercing shofar
blast which comes at the end of
Neilah, the Closing Service,
which marks the final sealing
of the heavenly gates.

JDC Secures Chazan for
Poland Over High Holidays
NEW YORK The
American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC),
with the help of its overseas
branches and the kind coopera-
tion of the Polish government,
has been successful in securing
a Chazan, Binyamin Glickman,
to officiate in Poland during
Rosh Hashanah and Yom
Kippur.
Inspired by a sense of mis-
sion, Glickman, who is 52, has
responded to the call to leave
wife and family with whom he
usually spends the High Holy
Days in order to lead services
in the major Polish Jewish
communities of Warsaw and
Cracow. To this task he brings
a fine voice, considerable con-
torial skills, and expertise in
the blowing of the Shofar.
The Jewish community in
Poland today numbers some
5,000. The JDC, which
receives the bulk of its funding
from the campaigns of the
United Jewish Appeal and
Federations, has been actively
involved there in the areas of
social welfare and cultural
development.
US Favorable
Arab Mayors in West Bank
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The State Department
welcomed the appointment by
Israel of Arab mayors in three
major West Bank cities. "We
welcome the restoration of
Arab authority to West Bank
municipalities," State Depart-
ment deputy spokesman
Charles Redman said. "We are
hopeful that means can be
found to restore Arab control
in other towns in the occupied
territories."
Israel announced late last
month that Dr. Abdel Majid E-
Zir, a physician, was appointed
mayor of Hebron; Halil Mussa
Haiil, a restaurant owner, was
named mayor of Ramallah;
and Hassan A-Tawil, a
businessman, mayor of El
Bireh.
Redman said the general
pflaitinn of the United States is
that "we support increased
control over their own affairs
by the Arab inhabitants
throughout the occupied ter-
ritories through developments
which have the support of the
local population."
Secretary of State George
Shultz has long urged the need
for the improvement of the
quality of life of Palestinians
on the West Bank and Gaza.
Shimon Peres during his two
years as Israeli Premier has
sought to provide this through
allowing the Palestinians to
take more responsibility for
control of their daily lives.
Peres has aimed at develop-
ing a moderate leadership that
would lessen the influence of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization and be willing to
join with Jordan in negotia-
tions with Israel. The three
newly-appointed mayors have
close ties with King Hussein.
Violence Erupts at
Ashkelon Funeral
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVTV (JTA) Tension erupted into incidents of
violence in Ashkelon late last month where an angry crowd
of more than 2,000 attended the funeral of Haim Azran, a
35-year-old Ashekelon resident fatally stabbed by an Arab
assailant in the Gaza market.
Feelings were exacerbated by the dedication of "Peace
Square" in Ashkelon in honor of the late King Mohammed
of Morocco, which infuriated rightwing elements. Azran's
funeral had been scheduled for Sunday (Sept. 28), and the
townspeople were given to believe that it was postponed on
government orders so as not to interfere with the dedica-
tion ceremonies, attended by Premier Shimon Peres.
Eli Dayan, the Moroccan-born Mayor of Ashkelon, tried
to mollify the crowd at the funeral, explaining that it was
delayed because the police insisted on an autopsy. But he
was shouted down by hecklers, as was Health Minister
Mordechai Gur who attended on behalf of the government.
POLICE REPORTED several incidents of violence
against Arabs visiting the town or passing through. Their
cars were stoned and, in two cases, set on fire. Gur tried to
assure the crowd that the fight against terrorism would
continue.
Ariel Sharon, Minister of Commerce and Industry, an
outspoken Likud hawk, was on hand. He refused urgings
by the crowd to speak. But he read a prepared statement to
reporters later denouncing the honor to King Mohammed,
father of the present ruler of Morocco, King Hassan.
He said if he had been consulted he would have recom-
mended that the square be named instead in memory of the
21 Jews killed in an attack on the Neve Shalom synagogue
in Istanbul last month and that a street in Ashkelon be
named in honor of Azran.
Meanwhile, the dispute over the honor to King Mohamm-
ed continued along party lines. Laborites are urging closer
contacts with Morocco while Likud and other rightwing
parties are sharply critical of Peres' recent moves in that
direction.
PERES WAS the guest of King Hassan in Morocco last
July. He stressed in dedicating the square in honor of
Hassan's father, that the late king had befriended Jews
during World War II and at other times.
That has been disputed by Prof. Michael Abutbul of the
Hebrew University s Truman Institute. He claims, in a
book published several months ago, that Mohammed col-
laborated with the Vichy regime in World War II and never
aided his Jewish subjects.
But Labor MK Rafi Edri told a television interviewer
that Abutbul's claim was disproven by other historians and
charged Abutbul with seeking publicity for his book.
Edri said he had documentary proof of Mohammed's help
to Jews during the Vichy ana Nazi periods, including
statements by Moroccan Jewish leaders. He said there was
also proof of a deathbed request by Mohammed to his son
and successor instructing him to continue caring for the
welfare of Moroccan Jews as his forefathers had done for
generations.
Edri was a member of Peres' party when he visited
Morocco. He was there again recently and had a private au-
dience with Hassan.
Congregation Aitz Chaim, the only Orthodox synagogue in
Greater Weet Palm Beach, recently carried their Toraha from
their temporary quarters into their new building on 2518 No
Haverhill Road. Officers of the congregation holding the
Torahs as they participate in the processional are (left to

DEVOTED TO DISCUSSION OF THEMES AND ISSUES RELEVANT TO JEWISH UFE. PAST AND PRESENT
Yom Kippur ... A Day for Community
By RABBI
HOWARD SHAPIRO
Temple Israel
Yom Kippur presents us
with many possibilities, with
varying colors and moods, im-
peratives to internalize,
memories to relive. It is a day
that begins as the synagogue
subdued listens to the echoes
of Kol Nidre's haunting chant.
We are back in time and space
with the Marranos; we are
fumbling with our own vows
and promises, seeking to sift
the grain from the chaff. It
begins with memory. Our
candles of yahrzeit and yiskor
give us pause. We are back in
time and space with our loved
ones. It begins as a community
comes together in prayer and
reflections. It is our holy of
holies.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
describes it this way: "The
Sabbaths are our great
cathedrals; and our Holy of
Holies is a shrine that neither
the Romans nor the Germans
were able to burn; a shrine
that even apostasy cannot
easily obliterate; the Day of
Atonement." Our Holy of
Holies is no longer a place. Our
Sacreds of Sacred is locked in
time, and bound, tied with in-
visible cord, to you and to me.
It is the day and the coming
together that gives us mean-
ing. It is the observance of its
rituals and traditions that
refine "our souls." It is as the
Machzor says: "It is the whole
community of Israel and all
who live among them who
have sinned"; it is the whole
community and all who live
among them for whom we
pray. Yom Kippur is an in-
tensely personal day. But even
in the midst of that individual
nature, our tradition reminds
us personal, but within the
context of a community.
Yom Kippur reminds us of
"us." All of our confessions
are in the plural: "Ashamnu,
Bagadnu we have sinned."
Rabbi Howard Shapiro
All of our prayers for
forgiveness are communal:
"Avinu Malkeynu our
Father, our King, be gracious
and answer us." The liturgy is
emphasizing our role within
the Jewish people; the people's
welfare depend on my actions.
I hope this Yom Kippur finds
you dwelling within the "tents
of Israel." I hope this Yom
Kippur sees you in synagogue
a caring member of a Jewish
community in prayer. I hope
that on this Yom Kippur the
gates of meaningful Jewish life
will open for you. I hope you
understand that it is your
responsibility to turn the key
first.
I believe the strength of the
Jewish people depend on our
deeds. I believe the future of
the community of Israel is in
our outstretched hands. I
believe the God of Abraham
and Sarah dwells within each
of us, waiting to burst free. I
believe: the stronger our
synagogues, the firmer our
people; the deeper our com-
mitments to Jewish living, the
better our childrens' future;
the more our prayers change
us, the more we can change
the world.
May this Yom Kippur see us
all, rising from our fast and
our prayers, better people;
may this Yom Kippur see us,
all Israel, and all humanity
blessed with life and health,
contentment and peace.

Punishment
Proposed
MONTREAL (JTA) Israel
has proposed that terrorist acts
against airports and aircraft be
treated as an international crime
and that the perpetrators,
wherever they are, be punished
according to international law.
The proposal was contained in
an eight-page document
presented by the Israeli delega-
tion at the opening of the 26th
Assembly of the International
Civil Aviation Organisation
(ICAO) here. "The most impor-
tant precondition for the suc-
cessful combat against terrorism
is the determination of states to
flight against terrorism and those
who support it," the document
said.
It urged cooperation among
states in the area of intelligence
and the creation of "well-trained
anti-terrorist units which should
be capable to act whenever and
wherever they are needed. The
terrorists must never be allowed
to feel safe anywhere in the
world," the Israeli document said.

last week night that the ap-
pointment of Arab mayors
should not be construed as a
beginning of the unilateral im-
plementation of autonomy by
Israel.
"By no means, no. There is
no connection to any kind of
(autonomy) plan," Sneh said.
"On the other hand," he add-
ed, "this is a continuation of
the policy we have followed for
a long time: that control of the

residents."
Sneh pointed out that
autonomy was an overall
regional concept, not a local
municipal one. "There is a
basic and substantive dif-
ference between the two
things," he said.

Australian Press Council Censures
Arabic-Language Paper
SYDNEY (JTA) The
Australian Press Council has
censured an Arabic-language
newspaper, An Nahda, for
publishing "violent attacks on
Jews as a group" including the
infamous blood libel.
The Council acted on a com-
plaint by the New South Wales
Jewish Board of Deputies
against three articles publish-
ed in September, 1985 by the
newspaper which is the organ
of the Syrian National
Socialist Party here. It deemed
them to be "anti-Semitic,
disparaging and belittling of
Jews and calculated to incite
racial hatred."
The Press Council monitors
all branches of the press in
Australia and adjudicates com-
plaints. Its Adjudication No.
294 relating to An Nahda,
cited as one example of "a
number of wild and unsubstan-
tiated allegations" the paper's
assertion that "in most parts
of the world" the Jews have
"boldly embarked upon kid-
napping Christian men and
children and slaughtering
them to obtain their blood for

Passover celebration."
The Press Council noted:
"The articles contain extreme
and generalized statements
about 'Judaism,' 'Jews' and
'the Zionist movement.' The
editor emphasized that two of
the articles has been reprinted
from Lebanese papers and
reflected the strong and bitter
feeling generated by the con-
flict with Israel. These feelings
are understandable but they in
no way justify the violent at-
tacks on Jews as a group, some
of which are couched in the
Palm Beach County. Publication

classical language of abhorrent
anti-Semitism ... There is no
place for such material in the
press of this country."
Graham de Vahl Davis,
president of the Jewish Board
of Deputies, commended the
Press Council for its ruling.
"An Nahda, by publishing
these calumnious libels has
threatened not only har-
monious communication bet-
ween Australian religious and
ethnic communities, but has
dredged up the ugly specter of
physical violence against the
Jews," he said.
Agritech-86 Held in Tel Aviv
TEL AVIV (JTA) More
than 4,000 foreign visitors at-
tended Agritech-86, the week-
long exhibition of Israeli
agricultural technology at the
Tel Aviv Fairgrounds which
closed recently.
According to the organizers,
the attendance was double the
number expected, and many
orders were placed for Israeli
agricultural equipment by
representatives of Asian,
African and Eastern Euro-
pean countries with which
Israel has no diplomatic ties.
About 20 percent of the
overseas buyers were from
Spain, which established
diplomatic relations with
Israel early this year.
But the highlight of the
event was the agreement bet-
ween an Israeli firm manufac-
turing irrigation equipment
and the Chinese National In-
stitute for Agricultural
Research for the Israelis to
build a five-acre permanent
model exhibit in Beijing.
