Looking Back
25 Years of Local
Jewish Federation History
Forty-eight years ago a handful of dedicated, energetic
and farsighted people began an undertaking that would
ultimately become the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach
County. It was a time when anyone who was Jewish in West
Palm Beach knew every other Jew. The year was 19S8, when
the Federated Jewish Charities of Palm Beach County was
Twenty-four years later, in 1962, under the leadership of
Morton Silberman, the newly elected President, the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach County began. Look back with us,

ing together to meet the needs of a growing Jewish

The years 1967-68 in Jewish
communities throughout the
world and in Palm Beach
County were influenced, in
great part, by the Six Day
War. Robert E. List, in that
historic era, was the guiding
force behind the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County as it rallied the com-
munity in an unprecedented
show of support for their
fellow Jews in Israel.
"We held a big rally at the
Royal Poinciana Playhouse
with Rabbi Irving B. Cohen as
the keynote speaker,"
remembered Mr. List. "He
spoke beautifully. People came
from all over even those
who never identified before
with the organized Jewish
community. We raised close to
$200,000 for the emergency.
This was in addition to our
regular Campaign of $100,000
which we were just winding
The outpouring of financial
support for Israel in the after-
math of the 1967 Arab-Israeli
war changed the nature and
scope of the Federation-UJA
Campaigns thereafter. An
Honor Roll book, listing the
names and amounts of con-
tributors, had been a regular
motivating tool of the Cam-
paign. It was discontinued in
1967, according to Mr. List,
because it was felt that the ex-
traordinary nature of the gifts

to the emergency fund was not
a true measure of an in-
dividual's giving. However,
the increased overseas needs
necessitated a two line Cam-
paign (Israel Emergency Fund
and Regular) which remained
in existence for many years
Federation leadership realiz-
ed during those years that it
was also necessary to broaden
the base of the Campaign.
"Most of the dollars that we
raised were going to Israel.
We began to look more at local
activities and services. We
knew that if we only raise
money for Israel, we wouldn't
be able to build a viable Jewish
community here. On the other
hand, if we did continue to
establish a strong community
here, dollars for Israel would
increase," explained Mr. List.

broker Robert List was involv-
ed with building this Jewish
community from the early
days. Surrounded in his office
by original photographs of ear-
ly Palm Beach County real
estate development, he
reminisced about how the
Jewish community began. "It
was quite small and intimate
and everyone knew everyone

Israel confirmed last week
that it supplied $12 million of
U.S. arms to Iran "in response
to an American request,' but
emphatically denied knowing
that any of the funds paid by
Iran were transferred to the
Contras, the Nicaraguan rebel
force supported by the Reagan
Administration in their at-
tempt to overthrow the San-
dinista government of
Israel's policy and the need
to keep it secret from Knesset
members was vigorously
defended by Vice Premier and
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres in a lengthy statement
last week to a Knesset angered
and dismayed by the govern-
ment's clandestine actions.
Israel's official
acknowledgement contained in
a statement released here, dif-
fered in several particulars
from the statements made
several hours earlier by U.S.
Attorney General Edwin
Meese, at a White House press
Meese said that some
$10-$30 million of the money
Iran paid for arms received
from the U.S. were deposited
by "representatives of Israel"
in Swiss bank accounts set up
by the Contras. He said the
money was the amount Iran
paid over the $12 million cost
of the weapons, which were
transferred from the Depart-
ment of Defense. Meese refer-
red several times to
"representatives of Israel" in
that connection and promptly
corrected himself after referr-
ing once to "representatives of
the Israel government."
Peres, who was Prime
Minister when the transac-
tions with Iran occurred, ad-
dressed the Knesset in
response to seven urgent
agenda motions on the issue,
severely critical of the govern-
ment. Several were introduced
by leftist factions, which were
the most vociferous in their
condemnation. But there was
strong criticism as well from
Labor and Likud MKs. Only
Yuval Neeman, leader of the
ultra-nationalist Tehiya Party
unconditionally supported the
government's position.
Flaying his critics as
"hypocrites .. who presume
to speak in the name of a lofty
morality," Peres strongly
defended the Reagan Ad-
ministration's objectives

Facts Out Of Context
Near East Report
A Washington, D.C. bank advertises itself as
"the most important bank in the most important
city in the world." The Washington Post, with
its 800,000 daily and 1.1 million Sunday readers,
needs no such self-promotion. It is virtually the
capital's central nervous system.
That makes what the Post says very impor-
tant. And what the paper has chosen to say
about Israel lately is curious. Opinions on the
newsworthiness and objectivity of individual
stories, of course, vary from editor to editor and
among readers. But over time, patterns emerge.
Since late September the pattern in the Post
has included: Three negative stories in four days
at the end of October. Two started on page one,
the third began on the first page of the "World
News" section. The first dealt with the disap-
pearance of Mordechai Vanunu, the Israeli
technician who allegedly sold an account of the
country's nuclear weapons capacity to a British
newspaper. The second was a 30th anniversary
commemoration of a massacre of Israeli Arabs
by Israeli troops. And the last recounted the
story of a vanished American, Richard Smyth,
who had been indicted for allegedly smuggling
electronic timing switches which have nuclear
application to Israel.
Questions arise not over the news value of the
stories about Vanunu but over the way they
were played. The Oct. 29 front page article,
written by the Post's Jerusalem correspondent,
followed by one day wire service coverage of the
same story on an inside page. Later, on Nov. 10,
the paper gave top of the front page coverage to
the latest developments in the Vanunu case.
The Oct. 31 front page article on Smyth was
news once. But nothing in the latest piece in-
dicated why the newspaper decided just then to
resurrect it as a magazine-length feature.
Most disturbing of the three, however, was
the coverage given to the Kfar Kassem anniver-
sary. Headlined "Israeli Arabs Mark 1956
Massacre," with a subhead "Some Jews Join to
Keep Alive Memory of 47 Killed by Soldiers," it
used the anniversary as a news peg for charges
that Israeli Arabs continue to be second-class
citizens at best.
The problem stems not from recalling the Kfar
Kassem tragedy. The story does explain how it
happened, through a chain of errors in imposing
a curfew on the eve of the Sinai campaign. The
question going begging here is when was the
last time the Post highlighted, complete with a
large photo and more man 20 paragraphs of
text, the anniversary of any of the innumerable
massacres of Jews by Arabs none of which
was an accident.
This illustrates a chronic news media problem
in which the internal context of a story clashes
with the external context. The Arab conflict
with Israel, including massacre stories, is in no
way symmetrical. This assymmetry is part of
the external context, and was slighted in the
Kfar Kassem story and also by not detailing
the quantitative Arab threat Israel's presumed
nuclear capacity is meant to deter in the
Vanunu and Smyth stories.
On Sept. 29 a headline on the first page of the
"World News" section read, "Israel Indicts
Demianjuk As Nazi War Criminal." The lengthy
article was followed two days later by a story
titled, "War Crimes Trial Poses Questions for
Israelis." The subhead explained that "Some
Fear It Could Be Harmful to Country." News?
Yes. Obsessive? Yes again.
On Oct. 9 a long story bore the headline and
subhead, "Stabbings in Gaza Embitter Israelis,
Slaying of Two Jews Prompts Demands for
Vengeance." The focus appeared to be more on
the reaction than the murders. On Oct. 11
another prominent story was headed, "Many

This has been the pattern from late September
into mid-November. A Post editor noted that, in
general, stories are reported without regard to
whether they are positive or negative. When
cycles in coverage do occur they are natural, not
consciously determined, he said.
Defeating UN
The 11-year-old United Nations General
Assembly resolution equating Zionism with
racism threatens not only Israel and its sup-
porters but America and liberal democracies
everywhere, several well-known speakers
agreed at a Washington program on "The Time-
Bomb of UN Inspired Anti-Semitism." Alan
Keyes, Assistant Secretary of State for Interna-
tional Organization Affairs, pledged to "find a
way to assure the reversal not only of the con-
cept that Zionism equates with racism, but of
the insidious political strategy it represents."
More than 200 people heard Keyes, former
UN Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick, Deputy
Assistant Attorney General Allan Gerson and
others at the Nov. 9 session sponsored by the In-
ternational Association of Jewish Lawyers and
Jurists. Keyes said that passage of Resolution
3379 on Nov. 10, 1975 helped illustrate how the
UN has been transformed from an organization
"dedicated to the pursuit of peace" to "an ex-
tension of each of the conflicts in the world."
General Assembly votes are not meant to help
foster conditions for peace. "Respect for facts,
for the truth, no longer matters." Instead,
Keyes declared, UN debates become part of an
effort by groups which can combine for a majori-
ty, such as those of the Soviet and Arab blocs,
"to delegitimate their enemies in those
In condemning Zionism, the UN labeled it an
"enemy of humanity," the Assistant Secretary
noted. Therefore, all means of opposition to it
including terrorism can be permitted. It must
be understood, Keyes stressed, that "the target
is not just Israel and all Jews who support
Israel, but all people who support Israel and our
common liberal, Western democratic heritage."
One intended effect of the resolution was "to
drive a wedge between traditional allies"
blacks and Jews in American domestic
politics. Keyes said that the alliance between the
two groups did not begin with the 20th century
fight for civil rights but with the 19th century
struggle against slavery. "By introducing an
element of racist anti-Semitism back into
political discourse under the guise of anti-
Zionism,'" Resolution 3379 aims directly at the
traditional alliance, he asserted.
Kirkpatrick, now a senior fellow at the
American Enterprise Institute, a Washington
think-tank, said that the UN became an anti-
Israel battleground after the Jewish state won
the 1967 and 1973 wars. "When the hopes of the
rejectionist states of defeating Israel militarily
waned they undertook an indirect cam-
paign." She noted that the resolution equating
Zionism with racism jriginally was introduced
by the Soviet Union She also pointed out that
the three states which "year after year in-
troduce resolutions seeking, in effect, to expel
Israel" from, the world organization are Syria,
Libya and Iran with the support of most of the
Soviet and Arab blocs.
Kirkpatrick noted that such "utter hostility"
was difficult for many in the West to accept.
"We are not speaking here of a misunderstan-
ding which might be resolved by a summit
meeting." Instead, "the very notion of com-
promise with Israel is itself the object of a kind
of war ...
"To undo the injustice done the State of
Israel," she said, resolutions should be introduc-
ed into every session of the General Assembly,
and annually into the Security Council, calling
for the repeal of the measure equating Zionism
with racism. The repeal effort should be pushed
aggressively, Kirkpatrick added.
Herzog in Tour
Poor Planning Brought Embarrassments
Friday, December 5,1986
Volume 12
Number 38
President Chaim Herzog's official
tour to Australia, New Zealand
and Southeast Asia, has been
fraught with embarrassments
which some Knesset members are
attributing to poor planning and
inadequate briefings of the Presi-
dent by his aides and government
But observers here stress it is
premature to say whether or not
Herzog's primary purpose, to
enhance Israel's political image
and expand its export markets in
a prospering region of the world
was achieved.
MOREOVER, it seems likely
that the noisy anti-Israel
demonstrations that greeted Her-
zog when he arrived in Singapore
last Tuesday (Nov. 18) to begin a
scheduled three-day visit does not
reflect important sentiment in
that booming island nation but
was orchestrated by Singapores
powerful Moslem neighbors,
Malaysia and Indonesia.
Herzog was warmly greeted by
Singapore's veteran Prime
Minister, Lee Kuan Yew, who fac-
ed down heavy Moslem and Arab
pressure to cancel the visit. Israel
has a long-standing relationship
with Singapore which includes
civilian and military aid and trade
ties. Lee made a point of extolling
that relationship, though he also
urged Herzog that Israel must
vacate the Arab territories it oc-
cupied in 1967.
Nevertheless, Israelis were
disturbed by reports that Herzog
was politely asked to shorten his
visit to Singapore the last stop
in his tour so as to leave before
Pope John Paul II arrived on his
official visit.
HERZOG'S VISIT to Australia
unfortunately coincided with in-
tense interest there in the affair of
Mordechai Vanunu, the former
technician at the Dimona nuclear
facility who disappeared in Lon-
don Oct. 1 and has turned up in
jail in Israel. He faces charges of
either espionage or treason for
giving a British newspaper infor-
mation about Israel's alleged
nuclear weapons capabilities.
Vanunu lived in Australia for a
time and it was there that he con-
verted to the Christian faith. Rev.
John McKnight, the Anglican
vicar who converted him, went to
Israel last month in an unsuc-
cessful attempt to discover
Vanunu's whereabouts. He charg-
ed that Vanunu was kidnapped
from British soil by Israeli agents
and brought to Israel against his
Israel vociferously denied this,
though it hasn't said how or when
Vanunu came to Israel. Herzog's
embarrassment was compounded
because the Jerusalem govern-
ment failed to inform him when it
decided, after weeks of silence, to
acknowledge publicly that
Vanunu was in Israel.
AS A RESULT, Herzog was in-
nocently denying knowledge of his
whereabouts after the Cabinet in
Jerusalem confirmed he was being
held "under lawful detention."
In New Zealand, his next stop,
the President found the focus of
media attention not on his visit or
on bilateral relations with Israel
but on the issue of nuclear
weapons in light of Vanunu's
revelations. There is a fierce na-
tional debate going on in New
Zealand about nuclear defense.
Those matters lent credence to
Likud Liberal Pinhas Goldstein's
charge in the Knesset that the
Herzog tour was "replete with
glitches and snafus" and "not well
planned." Goldstein, who called
the events in Singapore "the last
straw," introduced a motion for
Knesset debate on Herzog's trip.
THERE WERE of course some
indisputable successes for the
Israeli chief of state, such as his
tour of the South Pacific island na-
tions. The King of Tonga -nd
other local leaders displayed ge-
nuine warmth toward Herzog and
Israel and expressed interest in
improving relations with the
Jewish State.
In large measure, their attitude
stems from the favorable impres-
sions made by the small number of
Israeli experts, mainly
agronomists, who have served in
the region. The local population is
interested in more aid and know-
how from the Israelis.
One expected high point of the
tour, a visit to the Philippines,
was cancelled at the last minute
because of the troubled political
climate in that nation. Herzog,
after a telephone conversation
with Premier Yitzhak Shamir,
decided to avoid Manila.
When informed by the Israeli
Ambassador of the cancellation,
Philippines President Corazon
Aquino reportedly "shed a tear,"
as if Herzog's decision somehow
symbolized her own precarious
BUT THERE were suggestions
in the Israeli media that her disap-
pointment may have been tinged
with relief because she, too, has
been under pressure from the
Moslem states not to welcome the
Israeli President. The Philippines
itself has a large .and powerful
Moslem minority which has been
in on-and-off rebellion against the
Manila regime.
On the other hand, Herzog was
warmly received in Hong Kong
where he made a hastily arranged
visit as guest of the local Jewish
community to fill the time before
his scheduled arrival in Singapore.
Israel recently re-opened its Con-
sulate in the British Crown colony
which had been closed for several
years for budgetary reasons.
Israel hopes his visit will result
in important commercial relations
with Hong Kong which is also a
political conduit m the People's
Republic of Chma.

Dizengoff'St Recalls
Tel Aviv f8 First
Mayor 50 Years Ago
Say "Dizengoff," and the
famous street in the heart of
Tel Aviv immediately spr-
ings to mind. With its
sidewalk cafes, fancy shops
and constant pulse of peo-
ple, Dizengoff is a living
testimonial to the man who
conceived, founded and
fostered the city and who
served as its passionately
caring father until his death
50 years ago this fall.
Right from the beginning, when
a group of visionaries stood in the
sand dunes north of Jaffa in 1909
and declared, "We shall build our
homes here," Meir Dizengoff was
Dizengoff s dreams for Tel Aviv
were far removed from his youth
in Russia, where he was involved
in revolutionary activities and was
once even arrested. In the 1880's,
he turned his attention to his own
people, and concentrated on
Zionist activities through the
Hovevei Zion (Lovers of Zion)
AFTER AN unsuccessful at-
tempt to start a bottle factory in
Tantura for Baron Edmond de
Rothschild, which was to supply
bottles for the wines produced in
the settlements, Dizengoff return-
ed to Russia where he went into
business in Odessa. Active in
Zionist affairs, he was a delegate
to the Zionist Congress and oppos-
ed the plan to settle Jews in Ugan-
da. He believed that the Jewish
homeland must be in Palestine,
and in 1904 he founded the Geula
Company in order to purchase
land there. The following year he
moved to Jaffa.
The cramped, unsanitary condi-
tions of the Jewish community in
Jaffa and their exploitation by
Arab landlords led Dizengoff, as
Chairman of the Jaffa Housing
Society, to promote the creation
of a new garden suburb outside
the city. The stated intent was "to
create for ourselves a new
quarter, to build good and lovely
houses, and to create a better and
finer way of life."
Dizengoff chaired the commit-
tee through the negotiations with
the Turks, local landowners and
potential residents. At the last
general meeting of the Ahuzat
Bayit Company its original
name in May, 1910, the
members voted to change the
name of the new area to Tel Aviv.
driving force behind Tel Aviv. His
pleasing personality and ac-
cessibility made him liked by all.
His knack of perseverance and his
ability to overcome difficulties
were traits which proved very
useful in his dealings with the
Turkish Governor of Palestine,
Jamal Pasha.
When, during World War I,
Dizengoff 8 request that the
Turks cancel their order exiling all
Jews from Tel Aviv was refused,
the city's leader was ordered to
Damascus. After a stormy con-
frontation with the Turkish
authorities, Dizengoff succeeded
in getting the expulsion order
In 1921, when Tel Aviv became
a city, Dizengoff was elected its
first mayor. "We want to build
our city quickly; we have no pa-
tience," Dizengoff told a visiting
journalist at that time. New
quarters and neighborhoods stret-
ched the city limits at north and
south and when the first power
station was opened in 1923, Tel
A vivians discarded their hur-
ricane lamps. Horse-drawn
wagons gradually gave way to
motor buses, marking a new era
for the country's transportation
By the mid-1920's Mayor
Dizengoff recognized that the
town had outgrown its original
concept of a garden suburb. He
had dreamed of a population of
25,000, but by the end of the
1920*s there were over 50,000
people living there.

George Burns Has No Such Intention
You might say that George is
the Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb and Joe
DiMaggio of the entertainment
world. He is a standout in every
department radio, television,
movies, records, night clubs
and is the author of sue best-
selling books.
Burns hasn't just improved with
each of his 90 years; he has
Possessing impeccable timing,
Burns manages skillfully not to
cross the fine line that separates
the naughty old man from the dir-
ty one, although sometimes he
comes perilously close.
Like so many old-time Jewish-
American comedians and song-
writers, Burns began on the
sidewalks of New York. Born
Nathan Birnbaum, he grew up on
the Lower East Side of Manhat-
tan and left school after the fourth
time cantor and synagogue func-
tionary who emigrated from
Poland, died when George was 7,
"If I said my father was the worst
provider in the world, I'd be ly-
ing," recalled George, "but only a
little. It wasn't that he didn't love
us, because he did, very much so,
but trifles like food, rent and
clothing never even crossed his
The family survived, Burns said,
because "My mother was a
remarkable lady, with a great
sense of humor, and she had a way
of solving problems, and you
didn't even know she was doing
it" The young Barns also helped.
"When I was a kid, I had to hustle
to make money for my family," he
remembered. "I was the bread-
winner in a family of 12.1 went in-
to show business, and the others
went to school." In fact, he began
singing in the streets, saloons and
ferry boats at age seven with the
Pee Wee Quartet.
He struggled with a constantly
changing act until 1928, when he
teamed up with Grade Allen, then
an unemployed 17-year-old Irish-
American actress and daughter of
a song-and-dance man. They per-
formed five times a day on
Vaudeville, living out of a trunk.
INITIALLY, Burns was the
comic and Gracie "the straight
man," but they reversed roles
after the first performance
when she drew all the laughs.
Burns, with his raspy voice and
dry delivery, and the scatterbrain-
ed Gracie were perfect foils. They
were married in 1926.
They first entered the develop-
ing medium of radio as guests on
Eddie Cantor's program in 1931.

In Some Quarters, Pollard
Case Is Still Alive
By London Chronicle Syndicate
There is no doubt that
senior U.S. officials, even
those generally sympathetic
toward Israel, remain very
uneasy over the Jonathan
Jay Pollard spy scandal.
Despite the State Depart-
ment's June 9 statement
welcoming Israel's "full-
cooperation," they are con-
vinced that Israel has not
yet come clean in providing
the United States with the
full story of other alleged es-
pionage activities. The
Americans are not satisfied.
The recent spate of leaked
reports in the U.S. news media
suggesting that Israel has a more
far-reaching spy ring in place in
the United States than earlier
acknowledged is largely designed
to pressure Israel into
cooperating with the continuing
American investigation more
thoroughly. "It's aimed at turning
the heat on Israel," a U.S. Justice
Department source said. "We
want the Israelis to squirm."
Other Administration officials
said there was a strong impres-
sion throughout U.S. Government
circles that Israel's so-called
"rogue" spying in Washington

went beyond Pollard, the 31-year-
old former U.S. naval intelligence
analyst who pleaded guilty to es-
pionage activities on behalf of
ONE STATE Department of-
ficial said: "You know what they
say about cockroaches. For every
one you see, there are plenty of
others you don't see."
That seems to be the prevailing
mood in Washington about Israeli
3ties. Pollard was exposed; there
most certainly are others who
have not. There is an intense
search underway in the U.S.
capital for more Israeli spies.
This is making life for Israel and
her friends in the United States,
especially in the Jewish communi-
ty very uncomfortable. Someone

Endowment Conference
More than 75 people attended the first En-

ing and the Tax Reform Act of 1986 spon-
sored by the Endowment Committee and
the Women's Division Endowment Com-
mittee of the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County.
Norman Lipoff (left), Jeffrey Lefcourt, (fourth from left), partner in the accounting
firm of Laventhol and Horwath, and Jerome L. Wolf (right), partner in the law firm of
Wolf, Block, Schorr and Solis-Cohen, spoke to those attending the Endowment Con-
ference on the Tax Reform Act of 1986 and its implications and effects on charitable
giving. They answered questions pertaining to specific situations and problems posed
by those who attended the program. Shown with them are Ruth Berman, Co-Chairman,

Edgar Bronfman, president
of the WJCongress in praising
Klarsfeld at the meeting, also
explained the role of his
organization's campaign to ex-
pose Waldheim's Nazi past. He
answered the question he said
he has been asked frequently,
"Why did you do what you
did? regarding Waldheim, by
saying "There is a moral im-
perative here."
Bronfman drew a parallel
between the relentless cam-
paign of the WJCongress for
facts about Waldheim's war-
time activities and the Jewish
directive to remember and
retell, as exemplified by the
Passover Haggadah.

odus from generation to
generation, world without end.
We have before us the greatest
example of man's inhumanity
to man and I suggested
that his, too, should be passed
on from generation to genera-
tion. I am convinced that what
we did for the Waldheim story
was exactly that: to keep tell-
ing the story from generation
to generation." The Waldheim
affair, he added, "cannot be
swept under the rug."
Bronfman described
Klarsfeld as "one of the great
ladies of all time." He said her
role "is not so much punish-
ment for the guilty as making
sure that this doesn't happen
again. To feel as deeply as she
did about the great injustice
that was done" is a historical
contribution to justice.

Germany Expanding Cooperation
BONN (JTA) West Ger-
many is expanding its military
cooperation with Saudi Arabia
by appointing a Military At-
tache at its Embassy in Riyadh
where no such post previously
existed. It is also sending a
counter-terrorist expert to the
Saudi capital; and the visit at
Riyadh last week of Franz-
Josef Strauss, leader of
Bavaria's conservative Chris-
tian Social Union (CSU) was
widely interpreted here as a
new West German bid to sell
arms to Saudi Arabia.
Sources here said govern-
ment policy with respect to
arms sales to the Saudis has
not changed since Bonn of-
fered them highly
sophisticated weapons several
years ago. Excluded "for the
time being" was the advanced
Leopard-2 tank, which is
manufactured in Bavaria.
The Saudis took offense and
refused to buy any arms from
West Germany unless restric-
tions on certain weapons were
removed. Strauss has strongly
supported arms sales to Saudi
Arabia. He is a member of the
boards of several Bavarian-
based companies which have
offered weapons systems to
that country. His party is

One of the most emotional
events that occurs to a man is
becoming a father to a son.
Fathers look to their sons as
the carrier of their name, and
sons often inherit the father's
financial legacy. Boys also
tend to be involved with their
fathers as role models and per-
sonal identification.
Therefore, many fathers see
their sons as an ego extension
of themselves. In other words,
a son's successes, defeats, and
failures are often personalized
by the father. For example, a
father would say, in a
psychological slip, to a little
league coach who had benched
his son, "You can't do this to
A son's level of aspiration in

was that when father and son
love each other, the father has
considerable power over his
son. Biff believed his father's
message and dreams up until

self. This theme is recurrent in
many relationships between
fathers and sons. On the same
level, fathers often become bit-
Leadership Development
Program Chairmen Named
Howard Berman
Soni Kay, Chairman of
Leadership Development of
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, has announced
the appointment of Howard
Berman and Richard Flah to
serve as Program Chairmen.
They are currently involved
with the planning of a series of
eight Saturday evening pro-
grams dealing with topics of
Jewish communal importance.
According to Mrs. Kay, the
Leadership Development Pro-
gram will be enriched by the
two Program Chairmen's "ac-
tive interest, past involvement
in the Jewish community, and
exceptional abilities. We are
very pleased to have them
chart the course of this year's
informative programs."
Judge Berman stated,
"Leadership Development is a
very important program to
help develop educated leaders
in our growing Palm Beach
community. The knowledge
base that we hope each
member will gain will be im-
portant as they step into
leadership positions."
Richard Flah
Continuing on the same
theme, Mr. Flah said, "We
have planned a year of
thought-provoking programs
featuring national and
regional guest speakers. We
are looking forward to a very
inspiring year."
The Honorable Howard Ber-
man, County Court Judge, has
been a member of the Leader-

This kind of symbiotic rela-

damaging; to both father and

Bonn Takes
Against Syria
BONN (JTA) The West
German government Thursday
ordered the expulsion of five
Syrian diplomats, froze
economic aid to Syria and said
that its Ambassador's post in
Damascus will remain vacant.
The sanctions remained short,
however, of an outright break
in diplomatic relations.
A government spokesman,
Friedhelm Ost, said the court's
findings in the trial of two
Palestinians sentenced
Wednesday for bombing the
German-Arab Friendship
Society in West Berlin last
March clearly indicated that
Syria had "violated the basic
rules governing relations bet-
ween states."
A U.S. spokesman for the
American, British and French
commanders who nominally
exercise occupation authority
over the western part of the
divided city said that an
unspecified number of Syrians
stationed in East Berlin will be
banned from the western part
of the city.
A West Berlin judge on
Wednesday sentenced Ahmed
Hasi, 35, to 14 years' imprison-
ment, and Farouk Salameh,
40, received a 13-year
sentence. Hasi is the brother
of Nezar Hindawi who was
convicted in a London court
last month and sentenced to 45
years in prison for attempting
to smuggle explosives aboard
an El Al airliner at Heathrow
Airport last April 17.

Botanically all three are classified as fruit,
and each is highly nutritious in its own way.
Buckwheat is the best source of high biological protein in the entire plant
kingdom very close to the protein level of whole milk solids. Kasha,
the 100% pure roasted buckwheat kernel, is rich in potassium,
phosphorous, fiber and vitamin B, and NO CHOLESTEROL. Thus, it is
an economical food high in balanced protein and it's delicious, too!

Refusenik Cancer Victim
May Go To U.S. For Help
Refusenik Rimma Brawe of
Moscow, who is suffering from
ovarian cancer, has allegedly
received permission to leave

Viktor Kashlev, neither

Shapiro in getting her ailing

Shapiro said she had been
told by D'Amato that it was a
"normal situation" to have a

Shapiro told the Jewish

that her sister was "very, very
excited" about her prospects
of leaving. Rimma Brawe's
story is particularly upsetting
in that she and her husband
were in possession of not only
visas but airline tickets to the
U.S. in 1980. The couple, who
first applied to emigrate in
February, 1979, received visas
in December, 1979.

they would receive them back
"immediately." They never
did. The reason given to them,

Like A Bad Penny
In Some Quarters, Pollard Case Is Still Not Over
Continued from Page 5-
in Israel should have thought
about this before hiring Pollard.
The most determined hunt for
Israeli spies understandably in-
volves the law-enforcement of-
ficers at the Justice Department,
the Federal Bureau of Investiga-
tion and the U.S. Attorney's Of-
fice for the District of Columbia.
They, of courser are charged with
finding criminals, including spies.
They take their responsibilities
very seriously. They look at the
situation in the most narrow
possible way. "It's cops and rob-
bers to them, one American of-
ficial explained.
UNLIKE THE more politically-
attuned foreign affairs specialists
at the State Department, the Na-
tional Security Council and the
Pentagon, the law-enforcement
people have little patience for or
interest in the "bigger picture"
involving U.S.-Israeli relations.
This helps to explain why there
have been so many conflicting
statements coining out of
Washington in recent days. The
State Department, especially
Secretary of State George Shultz,
is very sensitive to the continuing
relationship with Israel. The law-
enforcement officials even At-
torney General Edwin Meese
are not. They don't want any
subsequent investigation of their
behavior to show even the
slightest hint of a political cover-
up. Watergate is still very fresh
on their minds.
Thus, this Administration, when
it comes to Pollard and other
related espionage developments,
simply cannot speak with one
voice even when it tries. What one
sees depends on where one sits.
BUT WHAT has deeply ir-
ritated almost all U.S. officials is
the reaction in Israel to Pollard's
capture. in Israel seems to
have paid much of a price for the
supposed blunder. There is no
serious outcry among the public at
large, even in the generally very
aggressive Israeli press. It seems
that such brutal spying on friends
is acceptable in Israel.
There is the disturbing fact that
Rafael Eitan. the mastermind of
the now-disbanded intelligence
unit which "ran" Pollard for some
18 months, was given a nice,
cushy job as head of Israel
Chemicals, even though he had
supposedly gone beyond his
earlier authority. To the
Americans, Eitan was rewarded
for his work, rather than punish-
ed, and this is unacceptable.
"He did what he was supposed
to do," an American official said.
"That's what Israel's reaction to
Pollad tells us."
The same, they feel, is true
about Brig Gen. Aviem Sella,
who, as a colonel and a visiting
graduate student at New York
University in 1984, first recruited
Pollard. Sella is today commander
of the American-built and financ-
ed Rimon Air Base in the Negev.
It was Sella, according to the for-,
mal U.S. indictment of Pollard,
who first received stacks of stole*
classified documents from the
American analyst.
"THESE documents were
delivered to Aviem 'Avi' Sella in
the area of Dumbarton Oaks in
Washington and at a location in
Potomac, Maryland," the indict-
ment said. And it was Sella, the
documents noted, who "purchas-
ed an expensive diamond and sap-
phire ring for Mr. Pollard to give
to Anne Henderson-Pollard" dur-
ing a November, 1984 visit to
Paris. U.S. officials have
estimated the value of that ring at
approximately $6,000.
"Aviem Sella advised (Pollard)
that the Government of Israel
would pay for this trip (to Paris),
cannot speak with
one voice when it
and he instructed Mr. Pollard to
make first-class hotel accommoda-
tions," the indictment said.
Pollard was subsequently given
$20,000 to pay for that trip to
Paris and a later trip to Israel,
where he consulted with Eitan
and his other Israeli spymasters.
U.S. officials are clearly upset
that the Israeli Government did
not disclose Sella's role when a
team of American investigators,
led by State Department Legal
Adviser Abraham Sofaef, ques-
tioned several Israeli leaders last
December during a visit to Israel.
There is a sense in Washington
that Israel tried to conceal Sella's
role as well as that of other
Israelis, including one official
cited only as "Uzi" in court
The Americans are clearly not
intimidated by thinly-veiled
threats in the Israeli news media
that the U.S. itself has been
caught spying on Israel in the
past, and that if the U.S. pressure
on Israel continues, those in-
cidents will be disclosed and the
U.S. will be embarrassed.
ACCORDING to these Israeli
reports, Israel has diplomatically
hushed up those incidents over the
years, quietly asking the im-
plicated American officials to
leave, rather than publicly strain
the overall American-Israeli rela-
tionship. Why didn't the U.S.
behave the same way once Pollard
was caucht?
"If they have the goods on us,"
one American official said, "let
them disclose them. We're not
very nervous. I don't think they
have anything that comes close to
a Pollard."
The U.S. has, of course, snooped
on Israel over the years, especially
in the 1950's. But since the days
of former Central Intelligence
Agency counter-intelligence chief
James Jesus Angleton in the
1960's, there have been strict con-
straints. The Americans have not
actually undertaken covert opera-
tions against Israel in any such
heavy-handed manner.
There was a proposal to
Secretary of State Henry Kiss-
inger in the mid-1970's, during a
rocky period in U.S.-Israeli rela-
tions, to undertake such covert
operations against Israel. But
after some consideration, Kiss-
inger rejected the proposal, fear-
ing that it might be exposed a
real possibility given the number
of friends Israel has throughout
the Washington bureaucracy.
Politically the Administration
would be severely embarrassed.
Israel's best friends in Congress
would be very angry.
THERE ARE limits within
which friendly countries are sup-
posed to spy upon each other. Yes,
the super-secret National Security
Agency can try to intercept Israeli
diplomatic and military com-
munications and take satellite pic-
tures of military activities on the
ground. And yes, Israel can try to
eavesdrop on American personnel
serving in Israel. But that is a far
cry from actually running agents
in each ( other's intelligence
One American official sug-
gested that if the US. had actual-
ly penetrated Israel) military in-
telligence by recruiting and pay-
ing an Israeli analyst and then
been caught the way Pollard
was exposed in Washington
Israel would have reacted no dif-
ferently than the U.S.
The Israeli traitor would have
been arrested and brought to
trial. Such a blatant violation of
the agreed rules of the in-
telligence game could not go un-
noticed in either country.
One State Department official
said sarcastically: "We admit that
we have spied on Israel. But those
spies were acting on their own. In
fact, when they were exposed, we
punished them. One is today presi-
dent of DuPont Chemicals.
Another is commander of the
Strategic Air Command."
IN THE Pollard affair, Israel
made several major mistakes and
is paying a very serious price for
them today. "In Washington,"
wrote New York Times columnist
William Safire recently, "Israel's
detractors are almost beside
themselves with glee as the case

dbtt occ
unfolds, and duplicity is exposed.
Israel's friends especially
Jewish Americans who have been
doubly betrayed by an Israeli
operation paying a Jew to be a
traitor are not merely
dismayed, but justifiably furious.
And the Grand Jury that indicted
Pollard remains in business; we'll
see more."
Before deciding to operate
Pollard, Israel should have more
carefully worried about the cost if
officials in Washington agree that
the information Pollard actually
provided all those suitcases full
of documents was, with hind-
sight, clearly not worth the price.
"When Pollard first approached
us," an Israeli official in
Washington said frankly, "we
should have said, 'Thanks, but no
thanks.' "
IT WAS the U.S. Navy, after
all, which had been penetrated by
Israel. And it has been only in re
cent years that Israel's relation*

Whatever information he provid-

Israel had spent years carefully
building up its reputation in
America. The intelligence
cooperation has become very im-
pressive and mutually beneficial,
although it has never been 100
percent on either side. Still, why
risk that 90 percent cooperation
for the remaining 10 percent?
Why squander all of that goodwill
for a few more tidbits of in-
telligence which the Americans,
for one reason or another, were
perhaps not willing to provide
Israel through official channels?

must feel rather uneasy about the
way they have dealt with their
former spy. Pollard, according to
his lawyer, was originally
motivated by his love of Israel. He
wanted to help bolster Israel's
security. But he was clearly and
quickly expendable once exposed.
In fact, the State Department
said on June 9 that Pollard's in
dictment "was made possible
through the cooperation of the
Government of Israel." To
salvage American-Israeli rela-
tions, Israel was forced to
sacrifice Pollard r- a necessary
but still unpleasant thing to do.

Their audience appeal was great,
and they were signed to appear on
the Rudy Vallee and Guy Lombar-
do shows. The next year, they
signed for their own CBS pro-
gram, and they were regulars on
radio and TV until Grade retired
in 1958.
Her death, as well as that of
comedian Jack Benny, were the
biggest blows in Burns' life "Jack
was my best friend for 55 years.
He was always great," Burns
said. Benny had reciprocal feel-
ings. "Everything George says
makes me laugh. He is one of the
funniest men in show business,"
he said.
Ironically, Benny's death was
indirectly responsible for the
resurgence of Burns' career, for it
was Burns who inherited from
Benny the role of Al Lewis in the
1975 movie, "The Sunshine
Boys." For his performance as the
oldtime vaudevillian. Burns
became the oldest winner of the
Oscar for best supporting actor.

best selling book, "How To Live
To Be 100 or More," is dedicated
to the widows of his last six
Will Burns retire? "Never," he
declared. "What are you gonna do
except sit there and play with
your cuticles? I retired during all
those years I worked with
Grade," he said. "Comedians
don't quit. If they hear one laugh
they keep going, which is exactly
what I intend to do."
Burns said he hasn't quit
anything. "I haven't quit smoking
cigars, I haven't quit drinking
martinis, and I'm going to stay in
show business until I'm the last
one left," he said. "Don't you see?
I'm making old age fashionable.
People can't wait to get old."
He already is booked to appear
at the London Palladium on Jan.
20, 1996, his 100th birthday. "I

were to end the Iran-Iraq war,
reduce Iranian support of ter-
rorism and free American
hostages held by pro-Iranian
groups in Lebanon.
"In life," Peres said, "there
are often agonizing conflicts
and contradictions between
equally pressing moral
laims," and in the Iran affair,
Israel acted "solely out of
moral consideration." He cited
as a parallel Israel's decision
last year to free 1,150 ter-
rorists and other security de-
tainees in exchange for three
Israel Defense Force prisoners
of war in the hands of ter-
rorists in Lebanon.
He said he had nothing but
admiration for President
Reagan, who "does not rest
for one moment" in his efforts
on behalf of American
hostages. "Israel was asked to
help secretly and it was glad to
do so," Peres said. There was
no question of "American
pressure," he said.
He dismissed the idea that
the arms Israel sent Iran at
the behest of "the friendly
U.S. Administration" could
tilt the balance in the Gulf war.
The official government state-
ment described them as
"defensive arms and spare
parts." According to Peres,
$12 million worth of arms was
insignificant compared to
Iran s massive supplies from
other countries. China alone,
he said, sent Iran some $3
billion worth of military
Peres said he himself was
"as disgusted as anyone" by
the regime of the Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini in
Teheran, which has assailed
Israel in the most violent
terms ever since it took power
m 1979. At the same time,
Peres stressed that Israel has
"no obligation to Iraq" which
he charged has become "a
center for the PLO" and could
send "dozens of divisions"
against Israel at anytime in
the future.
Peres disclosed that he
spoke to U.S. Secretary of
State George Shultz by
telephone last week and also to
Meese, though he did not say
when. He observed that
neither had accused Israel of
"intrigues in Washington." He
also insisted that Israel had no
pecuniary interest in the arms
deal. It did not make "a single
penny" and did not act out of
any self interest, he said.
Meese said at his press con-
ference last Tuesday that "all
shipments in which the United
States was involved were
made through Israel." But he
said Israel had made two
shipments of arms to Iran on
its own, one in August or
September 1985 and one in
November 1985. He said the
U.S. "condoned" both
shipments after the fact and
that the second shipment had
been sent back by Iran. He did
not elaborate.
Peres defended the govern-
ment's failure to inform the
Knesset or even a subcommit-
tee of the Knesset's Foreign
Affairs and Security Commit-
tee about the arms shipments.
He said he had faced a clash
between moral imperatives:
democratic supervision of the
executive and betrayal of an
ally's secret. Had it been
Israel's secret alone, it would
have been brought to the
knowledge of Knesset
members, Peres said.
But the mood in the chamber
was angry. Haim Ramon, the
ranking Laborite in the
Knesset Finance Committee,
castigated the government's
arms transfer policy. He spoke
of "the darkest regimes in
South America" as Israel's
customers for weapons and
noted that Israel was "still
selling arms to Somoza when
the Sandinistas were at the
gates of Managua." He was

Yossi Sarid of the Civil

that by selling arms to Iran,
Israel had "given direct en-
couragement to the most ex-
treme element in the Middle
East" and it was "an en-
couragement of terrorism."

The post-midnigfct govern-
ment statement followed an
urgent meeting between
Premier Yitzhak Shamir,
Peres, Defense Minister Yit-
zhak Rabin and their aides last
Tuesday night.
It was apparently decided
that Israel must respond to
Meese's allegations about its
transfer of funds to the Con-
tras in time for U.S. television
prime time newscasts.
The statement said: "Israel
confirms that it helped
transfer defensive arms and
spare parts from the U.S. to
Iran, this in response to an
American request. The pay-
ment for this equipment was
transferred directly by an Ira-
nian representative to a Swiss
bank according to the instruc-
tions of U.S. representatives.
These funds did not pass
through Israel.
"The government of Israel
was surprised by the an-
nouncement to the effect that
part of these funds were
transferred to the Contras.
This matter is not connected at
all to Israel, and the Israeli
government had no knowledge
of it. Obviously Israel was not
and is not prepared to serve as
a conduit for such a transfer."

Demjanjuk Trail Opens, Adjourns Until January
The trial of alleged Nazi war
criminal John Demjanjuk was
formally opened in Jerusalem
District Court last Wednesday
and, after a 40 minute hearing,
was adjourned until Jan. 19.
The Ukrainian-born former
resident of Cleveland, Ohio is
charged with responsibility for
the deaths of tens of thousands
of Jews and others at the
Treblinka death camp during
World War II where he is
alleged to have served as a
guard, known to inmates as
"Ivan the Terrible," because
of his unmitigated brutality.
According to the charges, he
personally operated the gas
At last Wednesday's hear-
ing, Demjanjuk and his
American lawyer, Mark
O'Connor, repeated the de-
fense contention of mistaken
identity. "1 am not Ivan the
Terrible whom they want to
hang," a visibly nervous Dem-
janjuk told the court.
The official charges against
the accused are war crimes,
crimes against humanity and
crimes against persecuted peo-
ple. Asked how his client
pleaded, O'Connor said "We
cannot deny that such terrible
things were done in the camps,
and we would therefore be
prepared to admit to many of
the charges, but the accused is
not the man to whom
charge sheet refers."
The small courtroom was fill-
ed mainly with Justice
Ministry officials and the
media. The prisoner spoke in
his native Ukrainian,
translated into Hebrew and
English. An argument arose
when the defense asked that
the Ukrainian translator be
replaced on grounds that he is
to be a prosecution witness.
Another person of Ukrainian
origin took over the
O'Connor's claim that his
client was unfit to stand trial
at this time because of an in-
jury sustained when the prison
van skidded on the way from
Ramie prison to Jerusalem,
was rejected by court Presi-
dent Judge Dov Levin. He said
he was willing to hear Demjan-
juk's complaint in his private
chambers but would not admit
it to the trial proceedings.
Another complaint, voiced
by O'Connor, was that he has
been forced to appear in court
without the assistance of an
Israeli lawyer. He underscored
this by apologizing repeatedly
for his "imperfect knowledge
of Israeli law."
O'Connor was given special
dispensation by the Justice
Ministry several months ago to
plead in Israeli courts. An
already are
a Zionist...
Israeli lawyer was to be ap-
pointed to assist him on points
of law. O'Connor told
reporters after the hearing
Wednesday that he had spoken
to six attorneys referred to
him by the Israel Bar Associa-
tion but none was prepared to
give his time, "a year or year-
and-a-half," according to
O'Connor, to serve at the trial.
"Certainly, I cannot pay the
fees of Israeli lawyers who
have asked for $400,000 or
$600,000 fees," O'Connor
Demjanjuk, 66, was stripped
of his U.S. citizenship in 1981
for lying about his alleged Nazi
past. He is the first Nazi war
crimes suspect extradited to
Israel and will be the first to
stand trial here since Adolf
Eichmann who was executed
in 1962.
If you believe in the unity of the Jewish people and
the centrality of Israel in Jewish life...
M you stand for strengthening the democratic State
of Israel...
If you support the ingathering of the Jewish people
to its historic home, Eretz Yisrael...
If you advocate the preservation of the Jewish
people and their identity through education and
cultural programming...
If you care about the protection of Jewish rights,
and all minority rights, everywhere...
If you believe in these principles of the Zionist
Movement, then you already believe as all Zionists
But are you acting on your beliefs?
Zionism today.
It all started with a dream...
Zionism emerged from the deep yearning of a
people to return to their Biblical homeland. A people,
dispersed by time and terror, seeking a new national
movement incorporating aspirations so often
challenged by pogroms and torturous times.
It was these aspirations for freedom that were so
similar to those that gave birth to America. And their
fulfillment was the creation of the State of Israel, in
a way that resonates strongly in the hearts of all
Americans. And in the million who have joined
the Zionist Movement.
Is the Zionist Movement
the way?
Without an organized movement in
which Jews are publicly identified, there
can be no democratic action. Not for
peace, nor for the many monumental
accomplishments of recent years.
The resettlement in Israel of
1,800,000 immigrants from over
100 countries. The vast educa-
tional program for many
hundreds of thousands of
youngsters in Israel and in
the United States. The ini-
tiation of the struggle to
rescue Soviet Jewry,
Ethiopian Jewry, and
Jews in peril through-
out the globe.
Vou can continue this endeavor as part of a mean-
ingful American Jewish community by lending voice
to the Zionist Movement. By standing up and being
counted. This is the American way. The way for the
1,000,000 Americans who presently declare with
pride, "I am a Zionist."
How can I be effective?
