Demographic Study To Begin Jan. 22
Participants Urged To 'Stay On The Phone'
Jewish residents of Palm Beach County are
being urged to "stay on the phone" if they
receive a call asking them to participate in a
Demographic Study being undertaken by the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County, accor-
ding to Stanley Brenner, Chairman of the
Demograhic Study Committee.
"Beginning Jan. 22 through April i, approx-
imately 1,000 people will be called. The results
of the study will enable Federation, its
beneficiary agencies, synagogues, and other
organizations to provide for delivery of services
and programs and to help plan for future
needs," Mr. Brenner said.
Dr. Ira Sheskin, consultant to the study, ex-
plained that Jewish households will be reached
through random digit dialing. "Telephone
numbers will be selected at random. We will be
interviewing any Jewish person who answers.
The calls will be completely anonymous."
He went on to say that for random digit dial-
ing to provide valid, unbiased results, it is
necessary, for over 75 percent of the Jewish
households reached, to answer the question-
naire. "This is why it is so urgent that the com-
munity be aware that we will be conducting this
study. If they know about it, they will be more
inclined to participate in this vital effort," Dr.
Sheskin said.
The study will survey the Jewish community
from Boynton Beach to Jupiter to determine its
needs, practices, and attitudes. The question-
naire will ask for household size and structure,
marital status, education, occupation, Jewish
identification and affiliation, and more.
Other community agencies, in addition to
Jewish organizations, have shown an interest in
receiving the results of the Federation's
Demographic Study. Dr. Michael Robbins,
Director of Community Services, Planning and
Evaluations for the United Way of Palm Beach
County, noted that it was "in all our best in-
terests to share the information. The Jewish
community reflects the general kinds of needs
assessment for the old and the young."
Dr. Robbins said that the United Way will be
redoing their needs assessment this year and

Interior Minister Peretz Resigns
TEL AVIV (JTA) Interior Minister Yitzhak Peretz resigned Dec. 31
rather than confirm the Jewish identity of a person converted by a Reform rabbi.
In his letter of resignation to Premier Yitzhak Shamir, which he read to the
media before reading it to the Knesset, Peretz, who heads the Orthodox Shas
Party, denounced Reform conversions as a "travesty" that threatened "the sur-
vival of the Jewish people."
According to the law, a Minister's resignation takes effect 48 hours after it is
submitted. Some coalition members, mainly Likud MKs, tried to persuade Peretz
to withdraw his resignation, but he insisted his decision was final.
Nevertheless, Shas, with a four-man Knesset faction, is expected to remain
in the unity coalition government, though without Cabinet representation.
Peretz resigned to avoid having to comply with a Supreme Court order to
issue a Jewish identity card to Shoshana Miller, a recent immigrant from the
U.S. who was converted to Judaism by an American Reform rabbi three years
before she came to Israel.
When, on arrival here, she was denied the automatic citizenship to which
every Jew is entitled, she took her case to the high court. Peretz, trying to avoid
a hearing, agreed to register her as a Jew with the word "converted" stamped on
her card. But the court rejected that subterfuge and it was criticized by many Or-
thodox rabbis on grounds that Jewish law forbids stigmatizing converts.
Peretz proposed other variations, including a law that would make it

The Gordon Years 1973-74
(Stephen R. Gordon, Presi-
dent of the Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County from
197S-7J,, passed away in 1985.
Following is an interview with
I. Edward "Bim" Adler who
served as Federation's Ex-
ecutive Director during the
Gordon years.)
October 1973. The Yom Kip-
pur War. Once again, as it did
during the Six Day War, this
community responded to the
new emergency with an im-
mediate outpouring of finan-
cial and emotional support for
the beleaguered State of
Beginning on the eve of the
outbreak of the war, Steve
Gordon, President of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, worked around
the clock for 18 solid days with
his Campaign Chairman, Dr.
Marvin Rosenberg, and the
Federation's Executive Direc-
tor, I. Edward "Bim" Adler. A
rally on behalf of the Israel
emergency, with over 5,000
people in attendance, was held
on Oct. 11 at the West Palm
Beach Auditorium.
Mr. Adler vividly remembers
how Mr. Gordon's caring and
dedication for his fellow Jews
contributed to the success of
this community's effort on
behalf of Israel. "It was an
amazing thing. Steve didn't
stop for close to three weeks.
Stephen R. Gordon in 1974
We had a telex in the office
and people kept coming in at
all hours to get the latest news
and to turn in funds," Mr.
Adler said. "Steve was very
proud of the fact that he
solicited this community's first
six-figure gift during this time.
The Campaign that year total-
ed $1,500,000 as compared to
$535,000 raised the previous
Mr. Gordon's untiring ef-
forts during this crucial period
of history was an indication of
his dedication and drive to
assure success in everything
he accomplished during his ad-
ministration, according to Mr.
In addition to Mr. Gordon's
overriding concern for the
Jewish community, he also had
an ecumenical outlook. "Steve
took an enormous amount of
pride in the fact that Federa-
tion worked with the county's
welfare department to bring in
needy children of all religions
and races to Camp Shalom. He
also believed in working close-
ly with the United Way to sup-
port the general community,"
noted Mr. Adler.
The influx of Jewish
residents into the Palm
Beaches during these years
provided a challenge to
Federation to provide many
services and programs to meet
their needs. An unanticipated
community relations problem
arose as a result. "The Com-
munity Relations Council
established a program to
counter the anti-Semitism that
was being exhibited in the
general community as a reac-
tion to this migration of
population from the North to
the South," remembered Mr
"We arranged a meeting
with the management of
restaurants' and department
stores when complaints of
alleged rudeness and
unwelcome remarks were
received. The Council also held
meetings with the new
residents to help them under-

Martin Luther King, Jr. On Soviet Jews
Executive Vice Chairman,
National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council
As we observe the birthday
of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,
I recall arranging for Dr. King
to address a national telephone
hook-up of Soviet Jewry rallies
we were organizing in com-
munities throughout the
United States in December,
1966. I was doing so in my
capacity as the coordinator of
the American Jewish Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry,
which was then being staffed
by NJCRAC. Despite his very
heavy schedule, Dr. King en-
thusiastically accepted our in-
vitation which gave him an op-
portunity to speak out publicly
for the first time on the issue
of Soviet Jewry. Although his
schedule kept him from com-
ing to the major rally held at
historic Cooper Union in New
York where Abraham Lincoln
spoke 100 years earlier about a
nation half slave, half free, Dr.
King spoke from Atlanta to
the issue of Soviet Jewry in the
spirit of Lincoln, and in the
spirit of the struggle of the
civil rights movement, which
he led so nobly.
Sadly, his description of the
plight of Soviet Jewry in 1966
is still relevant to the condi-
tions of Soviet Jewry in 1987.
As he said then:
"While Jews in Russia may
not be physically murdered as
they were in Nazi Germany,
they are facing every day a
kind of spiritual and cultural
genocide. Individual Jews may
in the main be physically and
economically secure in Russia,
but the absence of opportunity
to associate as Jews in the en-
joyment of Jewish culture and
religious experience becomes a
severe limitation upon an in-
dividual. The deprivations are
a part of a person's emotional
and intellectual life. They
determine whether he is fulfill-
ed as a human being. Negroes
can well understand and sym-
pathize with this problem.
When you are written out of
history as a people, when you
are given no choice but to ac-
cept the majority culture, you
are denied an aspect of your
own identity. Ultimately you
suffer a corrosion of your self-
understanding and your self-

Soviet Hype On The
Emigration Issue
McGill University law pro-
fessor Irwin Cotler, an
internationally-known hurr
activist, believes
were confronted by a human
rights offensive of unsurpass-
ed magnitude," Cotler said
"I MENTIONED to the two
leaders that while their

Soviet Union is presently con- d the release of prominent
drtingThuman rights offen- dl88ldents to welcome
sive magisterially organized by
Mikhail Gorbachev" but signi-
fying little or no change in
human rights policies,
eluding the emigration
Soviet Jews.
In an exclusive interview,
Cotler described his confronta-
tion with two ranking Soviet
officials at the recent Vienna
review conference on the
Helsinki Accords. He also pro-
vided a six-point litmus test to
determine whether recent
Soviet statements and acts are
a smokescreen or an earnest
move to improve human rights
for Soviet citizens.
IN COTLER'S opinion
there is a public relations of-
fensive characterized by the
release of high profile
refuseniks and dissidents such
as Andrei Sakharov and his
wife, Yelena Bonner, from in-
ternal exile in the closed city of
Other facets of the offensive
which Cotler called "un-
precedented in Soviet history"
are the numerous articles in
the Soviet press denouncing
the conviction of innocent peo-
ple; the enactment of new
emigration statutes the first
codification of emigration
regulations; and Gorbachev's
new, seemingly open style of
It also consists of a will-
ingness to discuss the cases of
dissidents and acknowledge-
ment of past mistakes, Cotler
"I came to the conclusion
after five-and-a-half hours of
talks with Yuri Kashlev, Am-
bassador and head of the
Soviet delegation (at the Vien-
na conference), and Vladimir
Morozov, senior spokesman of
the Foreign Ministry, that we

tradicted their declarations. In
a word, that there remains
under the rule of Gorbachev a
persistent and pervasive
assault on human rights in the

replied, 'are not propaganda
'or export' and there has been
i real change in Soviet policy,
a 'new orientation.' They
hastened to add that all these
changes will take some time to
be implemented. Both insisted
that what was needed now was
'a spirit of mutual trust and
Cotler said that when he
brought up the specific case of
Ida Nudel, "a case on which I
worked for the last eight years

The controversy surroun-
ding Cardinal O'Connor's
misadventures on his visit to
Israel is reminiscent, in
reverse, of the Broadway
play, "A Funny Thing Hap-
pened on the Way to the
Here was a Cardinal setting out
from his Diocese in New York -
which happens to include the
largest concentration of Jews in
the world on a mission of good
will to atone for the much
resented pronouncement on his
last visit to the Mideast that the
Palestinians had a moral right to a
homeland. Suddenly, he became
involved in a new controversy
even before his plane had taken
off from JFK Airport
although he was visiting Israel at
the invitation of the then-Prime
Minister Shimon Peres, an invita-
tion intended no doubt in part to
allow him to recoup some of his
own authority and that of the
Catholic Church lost when
preaching abut the moral rights of
terrorists to statehood, when he
suddenly confessed that he could
not visit Peres in his official
bureau in Jerusalem nor Presi-
dent Herzog in his. Why? The
lame excuse the Cardinal offered
in asking for forgiveness from his
hosts and from Jews in general
was his unfamiliarity with Vatican

transparent falsehood would not
even have bought absolution in

more likely that Cardinal O'Con-

forces who run Vatican policy
towards Israel of what they made
Pope John Paul II say on his visit
to Morocco last year
"The Moslems are convinced
that Jerusalem should have a
special status as a central point,
the capital, of the three
monotheistic religions. This is also
the view of the Holy See. The pro-
blem of Jerusalem should be
HIS REFERENCE to "special
status" points to the fact that the
Vatican continues to hold that the
now long-outmoded and defunct
UN Resolution 303 (TV) on the In-
ternationalization of Jerusalem
remains in force. Grounded on
November 29, 1947, the Partition
Resolution was rejected by all the
Arabs who then launched the 1948
war. The Resolution "decided"
that "the City of Jerusalem shall
be established as a corpus
separatum under a special inter-
national regime and administered
by the UN ..." The Arabs were
defeated in the 1943 war, and we
would have thought the Resolu-
tion a dead issue.
Nothing in the relations bet-
ween the Popes and the Jews in
rt centuries has ever happened
accident It is therefore not
farfetched to see in the latest
Comedy of Errors staged by the
Vatican the opening of a new cam-
paign to wrest control of
Jerusalem from the hands of
Israel. Many feel that it would
have been far better if the Israel
Government revoked the invita-
tion to Cardinal O'Connor than to
allow itself to be treated ss the

have been an innocent victim of
the manipulations of Rome, but

Andrei Sakharov
A Hero to Jewry Both in the Soviet Union and the Western World
Andrei Sakharov, the
Soviet Human Rights cham-
Sion, is a hero to world
ewry and to the Soviet
Jewish emigration move-
ment. He has not only
spoken out for the right to
emigrate to Israel but has
stoutly defended the Jewish
State and Zionism at a time
when both are reviled by his
own country.
This emerges from a record of
his support for Jewish causes
published last week following his
release from internal exile, by the
Institute of Jewish Affairs, the
research arm of the World Jewish
WRITING in the Institute's
journal, Soviet Jewish Affairs,
William Korey, director of B'nai
B'rith International Policy
Research, recalls that as early as
1968, the then 47-year-old
physicist raised the Jewish issue
on both internal and external
He sharply attacked the
backsliding into anti-Semitism in
the appointments policy of the
Soviet Communist Party and said
Soviet support for the Arabs had
given Moscow a direct respon-
sibility for the outbreak of the Six-
Day War. Sakharov had described
Russia's Arab allies as in no way
socialist and said Israel had
undertaken a preventive war.
In tiie Leningrad and Riga trial
of Jewish activists, Sakharov
assumed a prominent, if not cen-
tral, role in the struggle for fun-
damental freedoms, adds Korey.
On December 24, 1970, a Len-
ingrad court handed down harsh
verdicts, including two death
sentences for an attempted plane
FOUR DAYS later, Sakharov
appealed to President Podgorny
to prevent the execution of Mark
Dymshits and Eduard Kuznetsov.
He pointed to extenuating cir-
cumstances, noting that the group
did not endanger anybody's life.
Sakharov's protest was taken
seriously. When the appeal of the
Leningrad Eleven was heard
before the Soviet Supreme Court
in Moscow, he was admitted into
the courtroom and was able to in-
form Western reporters of the
tiie idea of Jewish Statehood and

sistence of an ancient and
persecuted people who, in very
difficult circumstances, have

On March 19, 1971, Sakharov
turned to the question of anti-
Jewish discrimination in employ-
ment and higher education made
possible by the internal passport
system prevailing in the USSR
which records citizens nationality.
Together with two other leading
academics he appealed to the
Soviet leadership to abolish
registration of nationality in
passports and questionnaires.
IN 1971, too, he questioned the
Soviet official view of Zionism and
the Jewish desire to go to Israel.
As a member of the Soviet Com-
mittee on Human Rights, he
associated himself with a letter
defending Zionism against the
Soviet press description of it as
reactionary and practically
The Committee's letter stated
that Zionism was no more than

Israeli Olympic athletes in
Munich, he joined a small group of
Jewish activists demonstrating in

massacre has quickly ended by the
police who arrested the
demonstrators, including

much more politically sensitive
issue of American trade credits
for the Soviet Union by suppor-

ment in Congress linking U.S.
economic concessions to a relaxa-
tion on Soviet emigration.
"Sakharov's intervention re-
quired extraordinary courage. It
was the first time that any Soviet
citizen had publicly appealed over
the head of his own government to
a foreign government to act in
direct opposition to the vital in-
terests of the Kremlin.
"He was called in by the Deputy
Procurator General of the USSR
and threatened with punishment.
Instead of capitulating, he ad-
dressed an open letter to the U.S.

warned that its abandonment
being urged by the Nixon Ad-
ministration would mean a
betrayal of the thousands of Jews

ditions of Soviet Jewry still re-
main oppressive. Emigration
has been virtually ended
reaching the lowest numbers
since the doors were slightly
opened in early 1967. While
Natan Sharansky and promi-
nent refuseniks such as Eli-
jahu Essas have been permit-
ted to leave, thousands more
continue to be denied emigra-
tion visas year after year. The
names of more than 11,000
long-term refuseniks were
given to the Soviet govern-
ment by the United States
shortly after Reykjavik; still
they wait for permission to
emigrate, many for more than
10 years in "quiet despera-
tion." They do so in a climate
of open and vicious hostility
toward Israel, Zionism and
Judaism, expressed in barely
disguised anti-Semitism in the
Soviet media. Seeking to learn
Hebrew, Jewish history,
Jewish culture, and to practice
the Jewish religion, they are
subjected to various forms of
intimidation ranging from
surveillance and KGB inter-
rogation to trials and prison.
As some Prisoners of Cons-
cience have been released,
other Soviet Jewish activists
have taken their place. These
harsh realities of life for Soviet
Jewry cannot be camouflaged
by a more skilled, Western-
oriented public relations style.
Nevertheless, in the 20 years
since Dr. King spoke to the
Soviet Jewry rallies, there have
been significant developments
in the struggle for Soviet
Jews. Only aTew weeks after
Dr. King spoke Soviet Prime
Minister Kosygin declared in a
Paris press conference that
those who chose to do so could
join their families abroad. But
even with this assertion of
family reunion from Kosygin,
which was aimed at Western
audiences as are the declara-
tions of Gorbachev, no one
dreamed at that time that over
270,000 Soviet Jews would
soon live in freedom, most in
Israel. In contrast to 20 years
ago, the issue of Soviet Jewry
was a critical and, significant-
ly, a formal agenda item in the
bilateral negotiations that took
place this past October in
Reykjavik. That Soviet Jewry
was part of the official agenda
represented a reversal of
Soviet insistence, dating back
decades, that the issue of
Soviet Jewry was an internal
matter. It represented an af-
firmation of Dr. King's asser-
tions to those community
rallies in 1966 when he said,
"The denial of human rights
anywhere is a threat to the af-
firmation of human rights
That the Soviet Union ac-
cepted this issue on the agen-
da, and the Soviets feel com-
pelled to make gestures that
attempt to project the ap-
pearance of Soviet respon-
siveness to the issue of human
rights, underscores Dr. King's
awareness that voices of cons-
cience can overcome the voices
of oppression when asserted
loudly, vigorously, and
ceaselessly. We need to be
aware of that charge upon us
as we join with millions of
other Americans in
celebrating the birthday of Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Aliya, Soviet Jewry Dominate
Opening Session Of Zionist Confab
Friday, January 16, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach Couniy Page. 7
The urgent need for North
American aliya and the pro-
benefit of the State, but for
their own personal growth.
"Aliya is most precious when
it is a response to the ideal of
Zion rather than to brutal
blems of Soviet Jewish ernigra- nZJ? "TJ? i
tion and drnn-nnt* lntJSZ\ necessity we need you and
tion and drop-outs (neshlra)
dominated the opening session
of the First Zionist Assembly
here last Sunday.
Leon Dulzin, chairman of the
World Zionist Organization
and Jewish Agency Ex-
ecutives, and Israeli Deputy
Prime Minister David Levy ad-
dressed about 1,000 delegates
of American Zionist organiza-
tions, youth movements and
aliya support groups attending
the convention organized by
the American Zionist
The highlight of the opening
session was alive satelite
broadcast by Israeli President
Chaim Herzog from the
Presidential residence in
Herzog, who answered ques-
tions from the delegates over
the phone, quipped: "The fact
that your opening plenary ses-
sion is devoted entirely to aliya
is no less than a landmark in
American Zionist history. I
would even dare to suggest
that the Shehecheyanu bless-
ing would be appropriate."
Herzog reminded the assembly
that not long ago, the subject
of aliya was taboo at Jewish
gatherings in the "affluent
He called on Zionists to come
to Israel, not only for the
we know how much you can
mean to democracy in Israel.
But your olim will not only
give, they will surely also
Levy echoed Herzog's call in
a passionate speech delivered
in Hebrew with a simultaneous
English translation. "The
essence of Zionism is the
return to Zion. A free people in
its own country, master of its
destiny." Levy suggested that
Zionists have divided into two
camps, one in Israel and one in
the diaspora and this division
can only cause problems.
Dulzin forcefully addressed
the problems of Soviet Jewish
emigration and neshira, or
Soviet Jews who choose to set-
tle in the U.S. instead of
"The issue of Soviet Jewry
must be raised constantly by
the Zionist movement, by the
State of Israel and by Jewish
communities everywhere." He
noted that the Soviet govern-
ment's oppressive emigration
policies are not the only cause
for the plight of Soviet Jews.
Those Soviet Jews who do
receive exit visas but choose to
settle in America are hurting
the struggle for freedom im-
measurably, he said. "Neshira
should be condemned in the
strongest terms as should all

sion, serving as Special Gifts

Shirlee Blonder, a most ac-
tive member of the Jewish
community, is a member of the
Board of Women's Division
the Leadership Development
program of the Federation's
Women's Division.
Members of the Pacesetters'
Committee are Thelma Alk,
the organizations that assist
them. Soviet Jews are not
refugees. Neshira undermines
the effort to open the gates of
the Soviet Union and provides
the Soviet Union with an ex-
cuse not to open them."
Dulzin also pointed out that
assimiliation of Jews in the
diaspora and decreasing birth
rates are the biggest threats to
Jewish existence. "One of the
most serious problems of our
time is the safeguarding of our
peole's national existence,"
Dulzin told the assembly.
Regarding the plight of Jews
in Syria and Ethopia, Dulzin
declaed: "Securing their
release is the historic mission
of our generation."
Herzog, responding to one of
several questions from the
youth movement delegates
over the phone, also discussed
the problems of Soviet Jewry.
"The pressure Israel can br-
ing from an international point
of view is very limited. We are
not a major power or an impor-
tant power. We can do our
best with feeling. When it
comes to pressure, this must
be the duty of the diaspora
Jewry and in particular of
American Jewry. It is the
Western world in the final
analysis that can bring about a
Levy said the two major pro-
blems facing the Zionist move-
ment are yerida, the massive
immigration of Israelis to the
West, and assimilation. It is
paradoxical that Jews survived
centuries of oppression but
that in this era of wealth and
equality, Jews are assimilating
and disappearing, Levy said.
Herzog was also questioned
on the tensions between Or-
thodox extremists and non-
Orthodox in Israel. This is the
most serious problem Israel
faces today, he said.
"I would say that the source

dues. Do you agree with this
statement and what kind of
dues do you want from
American Zionists?" Shube
asked Herzog.
Herzog replied, "The dues I
want from the American
Zionists are the American
Jews. That's really what is the
most important thing of all."
He stressed that Israel is short
of manpower, especially in the
high technology fields, and
needs a critical mass of people
to retain its independence.
"I would say that while pay-
ing dues is very important in
the American Zionist Federa-
tion and everywhere else ...
the most important task world
Jewry and American Jewry
has is to come as far as they
can to Israel ... and in par-
ticular to encourage the youth

Chairman of the Brotherhood
Committee stated, "Recent in-
cidents of racial violence in
other parts of the country
highlight the desirability at
this time for continuing public
education and awareness for
respect of our American tradi-
tion of decency toward all peo-
ple. We are fortunate to have
in Palm Beach County a large
group of committed in-
dividuals and civic groups
which work for a society which
seeks to uplift and advance the
principle that we are all
members of one family, the
human family."
Israel Urged To Consider
Alternatives To The Lavi
U.S. Deputy Secretary of
Defense Dov Zackheim wound
up his visit to Israel last week
with a strong pitch for alter-
natives to the Lavi, Israel's se-
cond generation jet fighter
plane which the Pentagon
believes is too costly to
Zackheim, who arrived with
a number of proposed alter-
natives to the Lavi, held a
press conference at the U.S.
Embassy in Tel Aviv following
a meeting earlier with Premier
Yitzhak Shamir. He also met
during his visit with Vice
Premier and Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres and Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
stressed that the alternatives
to which Israel's defense
establishment promised to
give serious consideration
were all aircraft "that have
been flown," whereas the
Lavi, except for the initial test
flight of a prototype recently,
remains an unknown quantity.
Details of the alternative air-
craft offered by Zackheim
were not released. Unofficial
reports said the most realistic
option would be based on the
F-16, manufactured by
General Dynamics. It would in-
volve increased purchases of
that plane by Israel and its
modification by the introduc-
tion of avionic and electronics
systems developed by Israel
for the Lavi.
Zackheim challenged Israel's
cost projections for the Lavi,
contending that the plane
would probably cost even more
than the $55 million annually,
currently anticipated accor-
ding to Israeli calculations.

the U.S. alternative proposals

first test flight on Dec. 31,

UNDOF Troops
Equipped With
Warfare Gear
1,400 troops of the United Na-
tions Disengagement
Observers Force (UNDOF) on
the Golan Heights have been
equipped with gas masks and
other anti-chemical warfare
gear and are being trained in
their use, UNDOF Com-
mander Maj. Gen. Gustav
Welin disclosed.
Welin, who is Swedish, in-
sisted however that the
precaution does not mean that
UNDOF anticipates the use of
chemical weapons in a future
conflict between Israel and
Syria on the Heights.
He made his remarks during
a Chanukah-New Year recep-
tion given by the Israel
Defense Force liaison unit
with UNDOF at the Ganei
Hamat Hotel in Tiberias.
Welin and his deputy, Brig.
Gen. Douglas Joel, said there
were no signs of suspicious ac-
tivity or massing or redeploy-
ment of troops by either side
on the Golan Heights. In fact,
the level of forces at the mo-
ment is below the strength
permitted by the 1974
disengagement agreement
signed by Israel and Syria in
Geneva after the Yom Kippur
War, Joel said. H

Egyptian Jew Who Hid In Cellar
22 Years Dies At Age 82
TEL AVIV (JTA) Cesar Yaacov Douek, an Egyp-
tian Jew who hid in a cellar for 22 years, died in Cairo Sun-
day at the age of 82, Israel Radio reported.
DOUEK WENT INTO hiding in 1957 when then Egyp-
tian President Gamal Abdel Nasser ordered Jews expelled
from Egypt in the aftermath of the Sinai campaign. He con-
cealed himself in the cellar of his sister's house. She had
married an Egyptian attorney and converted to the
Moslem faith.
Douek emerged from hiding when the Egyptian-Israeli
peace treaty was signed in 1979. But he rarely left the
house after that because of advanced age.

Tarnopolsky Family Told
They Can Leave USSR
Ten-year refusenik and former
Prisoner of Conscience Yuri
Tarnopolsky has been told that
he many leave the Soviet
Union with his wife, Olga, and
daughter, Irina. Tarnopolsky
was called to the OVIR
emigration offices in Kharkov
on Dec. 31 and told they would
be allowed to emigrate.
The information came from
Nancy Rosenfeld of the
Chicago Action for Soviet
Jewry, which has been press-
ing for Tarnopolsky's release
for almost four years. Chicago
Action is a member organiza-
tion of the Union of Councils
for Soviet Jews, also involved
in the case.
In addition, the plight of
dissident chemist and poet
Tarnopolsky has been the sub-
ject of an international cam-
paign of scientists and govern-
ment leaders, esepcially in
France, where former Prime
Minister Pierre Maurois per-
sonally travelled to the Soviet
Union in recent months to
speak with Soviet authorities
specifically about Tarnopolsky.
TARNOPOLSKY, 50, spent
three years in prison and a
labor camp for "fabrications
which defame the Soviet state
and social system." His arrest
was part of a policy of increas-
ed harrassment of emigration
activists in Kharkov, which
began with the 1981 sentenc-
ing of refusenik Alexander
Paritsky to a three-year term
in a labor camp.
Tarnopolsky, Paritsky and
other Kharkov activists had
set up an unofficial "Jewish
University' in Kharkov for
children of refuseniks who
were not permitted higher
education because of their
parents' applications to
emigrate. Paritsky is an
acoustics physicist.
After Tarnopolsky and
Paritsky were arrested, the
university was closed by
Soviet authorities and there
ensued a series of appartment
searches, police detentions and
interrogations, and threats of
criminal prosecution of re-
maining Kharkov activists.
first applied to emigrate in
1976 and were refused in 1979
on the basis of "insufficient
kinship" abroad. As a result,
Yuri Tarnopolsky lost his job
as a full professor at the
Polytechnical Institute in
Krasnoyarsk, Siberia. He was
subsequently prevented from
working in his field, organic
chemistry, about which he
authored over 60 scientific
Despite everything, he con-
tineud to speak out publicly
against the state of refusal of
all Jews who sought to
emigrate, and wrote an ac-
count of refusenik life.
"Description of a Disease."
describing refuseniks as "an
oppressed Jewish minority .
created in the USSR," denied
protection by "the Soviet con-
stitution and Soviet law" and
whose "fate is in the hands of
the secret police."
Tarnopolsky also writes
poetry, "about everything,"
said former refusenik Tanya
Bogomolny, a Russian-English
translator who described Tar-
nopolsky's poetry as "among
the best I've ever read from
any writer."
BOGOMOLNY, who spoke
out on behalf of Tarnopolsky
as soon as she arrived in San
Francisco in October, had ex-
pressed interest in translating
us works into English to help
his campaign.
Tarnopolsky's poetry has
been translated into French.
While Tarnopolsky was in the
labor camp, a group of promi-
nent French poets issued an
appeal on his behalf.
Moves to pressure the
Soviets to free Tarnopolsky
began in France in October by
Maurois, who, as Mayor of
Lille, had "twinned" his city
with Kharkov. Maurois travell-
ed to Moscow in Octoebr with
aides and spoke to Politburo
members about Tarnopolsky.
Maurois who advised by the
Kremlin not to travel to
Kharkov to see Tarnopolsky
and Paritsky, which was his
original plan. Instead, he sent
his aides.
On Dec. 4, Rosenfeld in
Chicago got a call from Paris
from a committee of concerned
scientists and was told that the
Soviet Embassy in Paris had
just contacted Maurois, saying
that a decision on Tarnopolsky
would be made in two months.
ON DEC. 24, Tarnopolsky
was summoned to OVIR by its
chief, where he was told that
they had not made a decision
and asked him to reapply for
an exit visa. He refused and
told them to work with his ex-
isting application. That night,
he was visited by what he
described as a member of the
militia, who had also visited his
neighbors and asked questions
about him.
Exactly one week later, Tar-
nopolsky was called back to
OVIR and told that his entire
family had permission to

Israel Concerned Over SLA Casualties
The Palm Beach Chapter of Women's American ORT will
hold its annual Mother to Another Luncheon on Monday, Jan.
26, at the Breakers Hotel at 12 noon. Dr. Helen Boehm is be-
ing honored as Mother of the Year at the lunheon. "Tribute is
being given her for her generous heart and outstanding per-
sonality," stated Sylvia Colby (right) and Lillian Feinberg,
Chairpersons. Recently, Dr. Boehm was presented the
honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters for the enrich-
ment of people's lives and culture by Rutgers University.
ORT will send the funds raised at this luncheon to ORT
schools nationally and internationally. The money goes to
supply equipment, maintain classes and provide teachers to
make a better world for the students.
Israeli officials are worried
over the mounting casualties
suffered by the Israel-backed
South Lebanon Army (SLA) in
recent days. Four SLA
soldiers were killed in a road-
side bomb ambush in the south
Lebanon security zone, and a
fifth died of his wounds last
Six SLA soldiers were killed
and two were wounded the
week before last when their
positions at Barashit village
were overrun by forces of the
pro-Iranian Shiite extremist
group Hezbullah. More than
100 SLA soldiers have been
killed and 100 wounded in the
security zone since May, 1985.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir pro-
mised that Israel would assist
the SLA in its present dif-
ficulties. He said on a televi-
sion interview that the SLA
commanders were competent
officers who understand their
mission is not to abandon the
local population to terrorists.
According to Shamir, the ex-
South Korean
Boycott Israel
number of major South
Korean companies refuse to
sell their products to Israel,
apparently because of
pressure from the Arab states,
according to Boycott Report,
published by the American
Jewish Congress.
The report named the
following Korean companies:
Kumbo and Hancock, which
manufactures tires; Kia Han-
da, Suzuki-Korea, Hyongsung
and Yamaha, which manufac-
ture motorcycles; and Hyundai
and Daewood, manufacturers
of automobiles. Hyundai cur-
rently sells 150,000 cars a year
in the U.S. and Canada, the
report said.
In connection with those
companies' refusal to do
business with Israel, the
Report cited a recent article by
the Korean Ambassador to the
U.S., Kyung-Won-Kim, in the
Washington Post in which he
said his country believes in and
supports free trade.
Who Is A Jew
Amendment Vote
The religious parties agreed
last week to postpone a
Knesset vote on the controver-
sial Who is a Jew amendment
to the Law of Return after a
headcount indicated they lack-
ed the vote to pass it.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir,
who said he supports the
measure in principle, sug-
gested that its sponsors wait a
Few weeks. The Labor Party
served notice it would vote en
bloc against the amendment
which would invalidate conver-
sions by non-Orthodox rabbis.
When a bill is defeated in the
Knesset, six months must pass
before it can be reintroduced.
The Who is a Jew amendment
has been consistently defeated
over the years.

At Midrasha Issues Forum
'Sex Is Never A Test Of Love5
Dr. Sol Gordon uses humorous remarks and dramatic
gestures to convey his concept of responsibility in
Sexologist Dr. Sol Gordon
told an audience of nearly 150
teen-agers and parents last
week not to confuse sex and
love. "You can be sexually at-
tracted to someone and not
even be able to have a conver-
sation with him," he said.
"One of the worst reasons for
marrying is sex."
This nationally renowned
psychologist and lecturer was
in the Palm Beaches to address
the third Midrasha Issues
Forum which highlights
special concerns relating to
Jewish teens and their
families. Midrasha Judaica
High School is sponsored by
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County.
Constantly walking back and
forth, using his bands to
dramatize his point, Dr. Gor-
don captured the teen-agers'
attention. He emphasized his
remarks about responsible sex
by using humor.
Love caring about another
person headed up his list of
the ten most important things
in a relationship. After noting
that having a sense of humor
was number two, he said,
Mail Carrier
Discrimination Suit
Bronx, N.Y., Orthodox Jew
has been reinstated on his job
as mail carrier and has been

by the Equal Opportunity
Commission (EOC), the Jewish
Week reports.
The postal service had fired
17-year employee Marshall
Garvin after suspending him
three times for disciplinary
reasons, including insubor-
dination, unauthorized use of a
vehicle and improper accep-
tance of postal funds.
Garvin convinced the EOC
that he was discriminated
against on the job due to his
Orthodox lifestyle.
The EOC examiner wrote
there is reasonable cause to
believe that (Garvin) was
discriminated against because
of his privileged situation due
to religious accommoda-
tion .. :7
"And I advise parents not to
have adolescent children
unless they have a sense of
humor." Number nine was sex
and number ten was sharing
household tasks. "Of course,
this is my list of priorities. My
wife thinks sharing of
households tasks should
number two," he quipped.
In Dr. Gordon's opinion, no
one under the age of 18 should
have sex. "You are too young,
vulnerable, and could be ex-
ploited easily," he told them.
Citing statistics he stressed
that there were over 1,000,000
teen-age pregnancies in the
United States last year. Over
half of these teens have their
babies. "And almost all of the
boys abandoned the girl," he
In addition to several million
cases of venereal disease,
16,000 girls became sterile
because of untreated or un-
diagnosed veneral disease.
"Apart from the moral and
religious reasons, these things
are why teen-agers shouldn't
have sex."
Dr. Gordon cautioned the
girls to watch out for boys
"lines." "Boys say, 'If you
really love me, you 11 have sex
with me.' Asked for an answer
from the audience, he receiv-
ed, "If you really love me, you
wouldn t put this pressure on
me." He advised them also to
use humorous responses to dif-
fuse the issue. "Sex is never
the test of love," he reminded

Yes, buckwheat is botanically related to rhubarb. Buckwheat, contrary
to popular belief, is a fruit, not a grain.
Kasha, the roasted buckwheat kernel, is the nutritious, delicious fruit of
the buckwheat plant.
Kasha, the 100% pure roasted buckwheat kernel is rich in potassium,
phosphorous, fiber and vitamin B, and has NO CHOLESTEROL. Thus,
it is an economical food high in balanced protein. and it's delicious, too!

Interior Minister Resigns
"three-way summit" meeting
between Israel, Egypt and Jor-
dan was described as "possi-
ble" by a top aide to Premier
Citzhak Shamir following
Shamir's meeting last Thurs-
day with U.S. Assistant
Secretary of State Richard
Murphy who arrived from Jor-
dan, Israel Radio reported.
The radio report quoted a
remark by Yosef Ben-Aharon,
Director General of the Prime
Minister's Office, in a televi-
sion interview taped for broad-
cast last evening.
Acording to the report, Ben-
Aharon said "It is possible to
expect a three-way summit
between Premier Shamir, the
President of Egypt (Hosni
Mubarak) and King Hussein"
(of Jordan). He said the
meeting would be held "in
Aqaba (Jordan) or El Arish" in
Ben-Aharon was also quoted
as saying that Shamir would
meet shortly with Palestinian
leaders in the West Bank to
urge them to form a delegation
for peace talks with Israel and
Murphy, who is Assistant
Secretary for Near Eastern
and South Asian and the State
Department's leading expert
on the Middle East, is on his
first visit to the region since
last September. His mission
has been described as ex-
ploratory to see how the stall-
ed peace process could be ad-
vanced. But American
diplomats have cautioned
against expectations of a
breakthrough at this time.

That too was rejected.
Peretz, an Orthodox rabbi,
decided to resign apparently
after consultation with the
Torah sages of his party. Shas

equivalent of the Ashkenazic
Agudat Israel party which is
also governed by a council of
His letter of resignation, for-
mally presented to the
Cabinet, was widely broadcast
by the time it was read to the
Knesset. Peretz read it in rep-
ly^ to Shulamit Aloni of the
Citizens Rights Movement
(CRM) who asked him when he
would abide by the Supreme
Court ruling to register Miller
as a Jew.
In the letter he refused to
refer to the complainant by her
Hebrew name, Shoshana, only
as Susan. He said his cons-
cience did not allow him to
register her as a Jew, as
ordered by the Supreme
Court, because "Reform con-
versions are a travesty of
Jewish law. They can only lead
to intermarriage." He made it
clear he was referring to inter-
marriage between Jews con-
verted by Reform or Conser-
vative rabbis and those con-
verted by Orthodox rabbis.
"In my entire period as
Minister of the Interior, I
never once registered a
Reform convert as a Jew.
Reform conversion is false. It
is not conversion at all and it
poses a threat to the survival
of the Jewish people, a threat
of intermarriage and assimila-
tion," Peretz's letter said.
He expressed regret that the
high court, in its ruling, was
not aware of that danger. He
also regretted that Likud had
failed to live up to its premises
on this issue, an apparent
reference to the consistent
failure of the religious parties
to push through the Knesset
the controversial "Who is a
Jew" amendment to the Law
of Return. The amendment
would recognize as Jews only
those converts converted by
Orthodox rabbis.

Court Rejects Previous Incarnation
As Excuse For Present AWOL
Druze soldier, Mohammed
Zayed Salem, was sentenced
to three years' imprisonment
for desertion by a military
court which refused to accept
reincarnation as an explana-
tion for his eight years'
absence from the Israel
Defense Force.
Salem, who lives in Shafr-
Am village in Galilee, is a
believer in the transmigration
of souls, a tenet of the Druze
religion. He told the court that
he had been a Syrian soldier in
a previous incarnation and was
crushed by an Israeli tank. In
his present existence he has a
deadly fear of tanks and skip-
ped from the IDF for that
The Druze are the only
minority in Israel allowed to
serve in the IDF. They are con-
sidered brave fighters, partly
because their faith teaches
that upon death, the soul takes
residence in the body of a
newborn infant. Even though
death is a family tragedy, it is
considered only a way station
in a series of existences.

Legal Experts Adopt Declaration On
The Right Of Emigration And Return
conference of legal experts at
the International Institute of
Human Rights in Strasbourg,
France, has adopted a highly
significant declaration on the
international right to leave
and return, it was reported by
Sidney Liskofsky, Director of
the Jacob Blaustein Institute
for the Advancement of
Human Rights of the
American Jewish Committee.
Co-sponsored by the Blaus-
tein Institute and assisted by a
grant from the Ford Founda-
tion, the conference called for
all nations to adopt legislative
or other measures ensuring
full enjoyment of the right to
leave one's country, tem-
porarily or permanently, and
to return; prohibit penalties or
reprisals against those seeking
to exercise that right; invoke
restrictions based on "national
security" only in situations
where the exercise of the right
poses a clear, imminent and
serious danger to the state.
Also, to impose no taxes or
fees, other than nominal ones
related to travel documents;
tolerate no lengthy or burden-
some procedures in issuing
documents or notification of
decisions; allow appeals of
decisions to higher ad-
ministrative or judicial bodies;
permit communication with in-
ternational organizations or
other bodies or persons with
regard to the right.
The conference has forward-
ed its Strasbourg Declaration
to the 35 participating states
in the Helsinki Accords review
conference taking place in
Vienna, the Human Rights
Commissions of the Council of
Europe and the Organization
of American States, and other
inter-governmental as well as
The conference was chaired
by Alexander Kiss, Secretary-
General of the Strasbourg In-
stitute. The Blaustein In-
stitute was represented by
Liskofsky. The participants in-
cluded experts from Europe,
the U.S., Latin America and
Africa as well as observers
from the UN Secretariat and
Council of Europe.
The declaration was design-
ed to serve as a model for the
expert member of the UN Sub-
commission on Discrimination
and Minorities, Mbonga-
Chipoya of Zambia, in carryng
out his mandate from that
body to prepare for the Com-
mission on Human Rights a
preliminary draft declaration
on the subject. The Subcom-
mission had recommended
nearly a quarter-century ago
that the UN adopt such a
In elaborating their declara-
tion, Liskofsky said, the ex-
perts drew upon several model
drafts, in particular the
historic Uppsala Declaration
-on the same subject adopted 14
years before at a conference
co-sponsored by the
Strasbourg and Blaustein In-
stitutes, at the University of
Uppsala, Sweden. He added:
"The issuance of the
Strasbourg Declaration came
on the heels of the Soviet
government's publication of a
recently promulgated decree
which took effect Jan. 1 adding
11 new provisions to others
now made public contained in a
1970 statute of the Council of
Ministers. Presented as an
easing of the emigration and
travel process, the new regula-
tions fall short in fundamental
ways of the standards in the
Strasbourg Declaration.
"They do not recognize
emigration as every person's
inherent right" as affirmed
in the Universal Declaration of
Human Rights and in the legal-
ly binding International Cove-
nant on Civil and Political
Rights. They also refuse per-
mission to leave to applicants
without relatives in other
Moreover, Liskofsky noted,
they narrow the family connec-
tion basis for emigration to ap-
plicants seeking to be reunited
only with their closest kin
spouses, parents, and children
and siblings.
Also incompatible with the
Strasbourg Declaration,
Liskofsky stated, are the
broad and unqualified grounds
for denial of emigration,
among them, "knowledge of
state secrets," "reasons which
affect state security," the
"basic rights and legal in-
terests of the USSR," and
"preservation of the public
order," as well as the failure to
provide legal means of appeal
to higher administrative or
judicial bodies.
Some analysts, he said, find
reason for optimism in the fact
that the Soviet government
for the first time officailly
recorded its emigration rules,
which specified among other
seeming liberalizations, that
applicants refused permission
to emigrate or travel would be
told the reasons. However, the
overwhelming tendency of the
rules point to a continuing,
mainly "closed door" policy.
The Strasbourg Institute,
located at the site of the Coun-
cil of Europe, was founded in
1969 by Rene Cassin, renown-
ed French statesman and
Nobel Laureate and co-author
with Eleanor Roosevelt of the
Universal Declaration of
Human Rights.
The Blaustein Institute,
established in 1971 to
perpetuate the memory of
Jacob Blaustein, encourages
projects in human rights,
inter-religious understanding
and international affairs, areas
with which he was closely iden-
tified. Its Chairman is Richard

Soviet Jewish Emigration
'Remains At Stagnant Low5
ly 914 Soviet Jews were per-
mitted to leave in 1986, a 20
percent drop from the 1,140
Jews who were permitted to
leave in 1985, according to
figures released by the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry. The 1986 figure was 98
percent below the high-water
mark of 1979 when Jewish
emigration was 51,320.
Emigration requests last

science were repeatedly

In November, the Soviet
Union further impeded the
emigration process by issuing
a new decree codifying
emigration, purportedly a
liberalizing document, but ac-
tually one which tightened
restrictions, the report added.
It maintained that despite
Soviet gestures in high visibili-
ty cases, such as those of
Anatoly Sharansky and David
Goldfarb, "Jewish emigration
remains at a stagnant low."
While the release of Sharan-
sky in February, and Goldfarb
in October, generated "great

munity, there is "justified ap-

iMordechai Vanunu, accusing
I his jailers of cruel treatment,

I his brother, Asher Vanunu,
[told reporters after visiting
I him at Ramie prison last week.
Vanunu, a former technician
I at the Dimona nuclear facility,
is on trial for allegedly selling
I Israeli nuclear secrets to a
iBritish newspaper. His

lother family members on their

[punished for communicating
|with reporters when he was
driven to Jerusalem District
Jourt to be remanded in
custody for the duration of his
On the occasion, Vanunu
displayed the palm of his hand
in which was a printed
nessage that he had been kid-
napped by Israeli agents in
ome last September 30.
"They bring me food like a
dog, isolate me for 23 hours a
day in a closed room, trying to
break me. I don't need their
food and I am therefore going
on a hunger strike," Asher
said his brother told him. He
also quoted his brother as say-
ing he received no money from
the British newspaper which
published his story alleging
that Israel has been manufac-
turing nuclear weapons for 20
The prisoner maintained
that he gave the information
because his conscience was
disturbed by "all that is going
on in the atomic plant." Accor-
ding to Vanunu's brother,
"Moti (Mordechai) is not a spy
but a naive person who tried to
improve the country. He
believes our leaders are not
sufficiently trustworthy, and
he therefore tried to do
something which would arouse
Israelis from their sleep."
The Jewish Community of the Palm
Beaches celebrated "$8 Billion Day," a
milestone representing the achievement of
$8 billion in sales of State of Israel Bonds
worldwide since the inception of the cam-
paign in 1951. In appreciation of Elizabeth
Fagin's (center) efforts in hastening "$S

In October 1973, Sakharov
again rallied to the side of embat-

Lebanese correspondent in which
he said that the issue at stake was
Israel's right to life and its very
existence, while the Arabs were
motivated by prestige and na-
tionalistic prejudices.
To end the conflict, he urged
direct negotiations and Arab
recognition of Israel's right to ex-
istence within borders ensuring
its military security, its fun-
damental economic interests and
prospective emigration there.

Boycott Report said.
Section 892, as amended in
the new tax law, makes tax-
able income derived from the
conduct of any commercial ac-
tivity "whether within or out-
side the United States." If the
foreign government owns at
least 50 percent of the stock of
the enterprise engaged in such
commercial activity, the ex-
emption on its "passive in-
vestments" in the U.S. could
be jeopardized. The Kuwaitis
could thereby lose their ex-
empt status on the passive in-
vestments of the Kuwait
Petroleum Co., in Santa Fe,
International, an American oil
exploration company it pur-
chased several years ago for
$2.5 billion, the Boycott
Report said.
3 Lebanese Jews Reported Executed
Israeli officials expressed
outrage recently over the
reported "execution" of three
Lebanese Jews held hostage
by an extremist Shiite group.
The hostages were identified
as Yehuda Youssef Benesti,
33, Henry Menn, and Elie
Srour, 68. Benesti, kidnapped
from his home on May 11,
1985, was the brother of
Ibrahim Benesti, kidnapped
the same month, who was
found shot to death February
15, 1986.
Srour, an electrical
engineer, was kidnapped on
March 28, 1985. There was no
information available on Menn
whose name is not on the list of
nine Jews kidnapped in Beirut
in 1985-86, four of whom, in-
cluding Benesti's brother,
were killed a year or more ago.
The Shiite group which
claimed responsibility for the
latest hostage murders iden-
tified itself as "The Organiza-
tion of the Oppressed on

Hezbullah (Army of God), a
pro-Iranian Shiite terrorist
It announced the killings in a
note delivered to the Beirut
newspaper An Nahar and said
they were in retaliation for an
Israeli shelling of a Shiite
village in south Lebanon.
No bodies have been found
by Beirut police. The gang set
conditions for return of the
bodies which include "release
of all stragglers in Zionist
prisons" and "complete
withdrawal" by Israel "from

Soviet Hype
On The Emigration Issue

said that there were 'state
reasons' which prevented her
"I OBJECTED," Cotler
said, "quoting Gorbachev
himself, who declared that no
one can invoke state reasons
after a lapse of more than 10
years, or in Nudel's case, 15
years have elapsed since she
first asked for a visa."
Cotler said he told the Soviet
officials, "As long as you keep
her a prisoner, nobody is going
to believe your statements on
human rights." He said they
reminded him of his conversa-
tion with Soviet Justice
Minister Alexander Sucharev
in Geneva in November, 1985,
about imprisoned Soviet
Jewish dissident Anatoly
Sharansky and six weeks
later Sharansky was released,
indicating also a change in
Nudel's fortunes.
"I said to the leaders of the
Soviet delegation in Vienna
that Ida Nudel was a symbol
for the fate of Soviet Jewry as
a whole and that I was talking
about tens of thousands of
refuseniks, some in detention
for their justified and legal
rights to emigration," Cotler

The Palm Beach Section of
the National Council of
Jewish Women will hold its
Annual National Support
Luncheon on Wednesday,
Jan. 21, at the Breakers
Hotel, Palm Beach, at 11:30
.m. The proceeds for the
luncheon this year is ear-
marked for the NCJW
Research Institute for In-
novation in Education at the
Hebrew University of
Jerusalem. The guest
speaker will be Hannah
Levin, Director of the Israel
Affairs Department of the
NCJW. Ms. Levin will also
speak, Wednesday evening,
Jan. 21, to the members of
the Flagler Evening Section
of NCJW. This is the newest
section of NCJW, made up of
business and professional
women of all ages and young
mothers. The luncheon is
open to all members and
friends of NCJW.
"They told me that the very
day we met, Nov. 7, the Soviet
government was making
public in Moscow a new law
regulating emigration."
COTLER said he concluded
their conversation by telling
them that the real test of their
statements will be verification
of the following measures:
Will there be a significant
increase on Jewish emigra-
tion? "Personally, I am con-
cerned that the new law will
serve to restrict rather than to
permit emigration."
Will there be a resolution
of long-standing cases of fami-
ly reunification? "There has
been no movement, so far, on
11,000 refusenik cases."
Will there be a release of
Helsinki monitors and
Prisoners of Conscience? "In
fact, more Jewish Prisoners of
Conscience have been arrested
under Gorbachev than under
his predecessors."
Will contacts between
Soviet citizens and foreigners,
tourists, coreligionists and
scientists be facilitated?
Will there be an abatement
of religious and cultural
Will there be an end, once
and for all, to the state-
sponsored anti-Semitism?
COTLER SAID he met with
Sharansky recently in New
York, and he characterized the
Soviet Union as "a curtain of
words." Cotler said: "Without
the above verification
measures the Soviet Union re-
mains a curtain of words."
He added: "The question re-
mains: is what is now going on
in the USSR a mere 'curtain of
words' or will it open a window
of light for the humiliated and
persecuted people in the
Soviet Union? '

According to Dr. Robbins, United Way gives
allocations to the Jewish Family and Children's
Service and the Jewish Community Center to
combat aging and loneliness, to help with their
transportation needs, health needs, for youth
and children services, counseling, employment
services for older persons, and more. "They are
two of our 53 agencies," he said.
Louis Bechtel, Assistant Director of the
Department of Community Services for Palm
Beach County, is also interested in receiving this
information that will help "identify the concen-
tration of needy people in order to provide social
services for them. The Jewish Federation
Demographic Study is another important plann-
ing factor for us," he said.
The county provides services to all citizens in
need who meet their eligibility requirements.
Mr. Bechtel noted that the county's Division of
Social Services impacts greatly on Jewish senior
citizens. "We service a great percent of Jewish
seniors in our three senior centers operated
throughout the county. We serve congregant
meals, provide recreation, and home delivery of
meals. The county readjusts its service delivery
area to reach more people as a result of census
studies and other information like the Federa-
tion's Demographic Study."
The Federation's Budgeting and Planning
Director, Susan Schwartz, has been working
closely with Dr. Robbins and Mr. Bechtel to in-
sure each agency's needs assessment will sup-
plement, not duplicate, each other. "Now, we
need the cooperation of the Jewish community
to make this effort a success. If you receive a
phone call, please take the time to be interview-
ed. If we catch you at an inconvenient time, a
call back can be arranged. Your opinions are
very important to us," she said.

Catholic Bishop, Jewish Leader Agree
On Success Of Ecumenical Relations
(JTA) "Harmony among
Catholics and Jews is the real-
ly great project and theme of
the 21st century," a prominent
Catholic bishop and a Jewish
leader agreed here.
Participating in a discussion
of Jewish-Catholic relations at
an ecumenical symposium held
at Synagogue Emanu-El last
month. Rabbi Marc Tanen-
baum, American Jewish Com-
mittee's Director of Interna-
tional Relations, joined Bishop
Ernst Unterkoefler, head of
Charleston's Diocese, in a
review of fundamental
theological differences as well
as central similarities between
their two faiths.
The two religious leaders
voiced confidence that Jews
and Catholics could present a
common front against racism,
persecution, and social in-
justice. They also advocated
that Catholics and Jews study
each others' beliefs and get to
know each other socially to a
much greater degree.
In a warm approach to the
Jews in the audience.
Unterkoefler said: "Catholics
are spiritually Semites. We
really should say we are Jews
or Hebrews." Stating that
Catholics draw some of their
theology from the Old Testa-
ment, he added. "I feel the
rhythm of Jewish-Catholic
relations being renewed in
your hearts."
Unterkoefler, who has been
prominent in ecumenical rela-
tions during the past two
decades, said that "one of the
Vatican Council's great ac-
complishments was that while
it was once common for
Catholics to consider the
Jewish people responsible for
Jesus' death, it is sinful to
teach that today."
Tanenbaum noted: "We
have reached a moment today
when not a single Catholic
school has a single hostile or
negative reference to Jews."
Tanenbaum, who
represented the American
Jewish Committee in Rome 20
years ago at the time of
Vatican Council II, the historic
ecumenical council, said that a
new era of understanding had
begun at that time, and the old
Catholic-Jewish hatreds had
been replaced by "a revolution
in mutual esteem."
"The Gospel of hatred of
Jews is no more," the AJC
spokesman said, "and today
we are united in our recogni-
tion of obligations to the poor
and hungry, a respect for
human life, and visions, with
different perspectives, of a
Messianic kingdom."
In a question-and-answer
period, Tanenbaum was asked
to comment on the lack of for-
mal diplomatic relations with
the Vatican and Israel. "Israel
does not depend on relations
with the Vatican in order to
exist," he said, "but it would
like such ties for moral, sym-
bolic and political reasons."

am convinced the failure to
find an adequate solution to
the question of Jerusalem and
the .. postponement of the
f)roblem, only compromise the
onged-for peaceful and just
settlement of the crisis of the
whole Middle East."
The letter called for the ap-
plication of "special status" to
not only the monuments of
the sacred places, but the
whole historical Jerusalem and
the existence of religious com-
munities, their situation and
future" which "cannot but af-
fect everyone and interest
A month before that letter
was issued, the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency was given
a background briefing by a
ranking official of the Roman
Curia. The official said that
one of the primary concerns of
the Holy See was that each
religious community receive
guarantees for complete
freedom to develop and grow
physically and economically,
including rights of ownership,
investments and the possibility
of urban expansion.
The official said the Vatican
sought a 'three-fold agreement
between Jewish, Christian and
Islamic authorities" in
Jerusalem because Israel's

ment, has consistently em-
phasized the main purpose is
to help Jews in need, whether

demand, creation of "a
homeland for the Palestinian
people," is contained in all of
its documents relating to the
Middle East. The Vatican
perceives this to be inex-
tricably tied to "the necessity
of simultaneously guarantee-
ing the security of all peoples
in the region."
The Pope told the interna-
tional diplomatic corps ac-
credited to the Vatican on
January 14, 1984 that these
principles imply a comprehen-
sive peace treaty for the area.
They are the only conditions
under which the Vatican would
establish diplomatic relations
with Israel, formalizing what
already exists on an "unof-
ficial" level.
The Vatican maintains an
Apostolic Delegate in
Jerusalem to represent its in-
terests and there is an almost
daily flow of contacts on the
cultural, religious and even
political levels which the
Vatican authorities freely ad-
mit and encourage.

Moscow Refusenik Stages Hunger Strike
10-year Moscow refusenik
began a hunger strike of in-
definite duration to try to per-
suade the appropriate
authorities to grant an exit
visa to his son. Alexander
Ioffe, 48, is a mathemati-
cian, according to Lynn
Singer, executive director of
the Long Island Committee for
Soviet Jewry.
Ioffe's son Dimitry, 23, who
is married and the parent of a
baby girl, has been refused
permission to emigrate to
Israel because of "absence of
reasons for family reunifica-
tion." His family is still in the
Soviet Union. They are also
Ioffe himself wants to
emigrate to Israel but he is
staging his hunger strike not
on his own behalf but that of
his son's because the Soviet
authorities are using his
presence in the country as a
reason for denying Dimitry a
"Yes, it is my dream to go to
Israel, but, even more, it is the
most important thing that my
son be able to live his life as a
Jew in his homeland with his
family," Singer said Ioffe
wrote in a letter on the eve of
his hunger strike.
Dimitry and his wife, Tanya,
and their one-year-old baby, li-
ana, applied for an exit visa in
1985. In 1976, Dimitry, his
father, his mother, Rosa, his
sister, Anna, applied as a
group to emigrate to Israel.
They were turned down on the
groonds that Alexander Ioffe
had access to "state secrets"
at his job at the Moscow In-
stitute of Automobile and
Road Building. That has been
the basis for refusing exit visas
since then.
Alexander, who had been an
associate professor of applied
mathematics from 1972
through 1976, was demoted to
the position of a researcher as
soon as he applied for a visa. In
his letter, Alexander said he
was being harassed on his job
by the institute's administra-
tion and a formal procedure
has been started "that may
eventually result in my
Ex-Nazi Stripped Of U.S. Citizenship
former Waff en SS concentra-
tion camp guard who fled to
West Germany last August
after admitting to the Justice
Department that he had killed
a Jewish inmate in cold blood,
was stripped of his U.S.
citizenship by a Federal
District Court Judge in
Newark, N.J.
Stefan Leili, 77, resident of
Clifton, N.J., was denaturaliz-
ed on the orders of Federal
Judge Harold Ackerman when
he failed to appear in court for
a hearing on his case. Acker-
man also instructed the Justice
Department to adivise Went
German authorities that Leili
is no longer a U.S. citizen.
The Justice Department ob-
tained a sworn deposition from
Leili last August in which he
confessed that he shot and kill-
ed a 17-year-old Jewish inmate
at the Mauthausen concentra-
tion camp in Austria. The
youth, identified as Leon Ax-
el roud, was running away
from two other SS guards
when Leili shot him in the
back, even though he knew

Forces in March, 1945. He con-
cealed the fact that he had
joined the notorious Waffen

July 1943, claiming he was a
private in an infantry division
and later a prisoner of war. On

fidavits he was issued a U.S
visa and entered the country
on February 14, 1956. He was

The Gordon Years 1973-74

stand their new, more leisurely
life-style," stated Mr. Adler.
Upon the observance of the
first anniversary of the Jewish
Family and Children's Service
in 1973, the Federation Board
approved its extension from a
two-day a week to a three-day
a week service. One year later,
it was established on a full-
time basis as an independent
beneficiary agency of Federa-
tion. Jerome Tishman, a
former Federation President,
was elected its first President.
During Mr. Gordon's ad-
ministration, the first com-
munitywide celebration of
Israel's independence was held
at Camp Shalom. Four thou-
sand people attended Israel's
25th anniversary party and
heard an address by Con-
gressman Paul Rogers.
It was also during Mr. Gor-
don's Presidency that the
Jewish Community Day School
became a reality. Federation
allotted a $25,000 grant to
establish the school, and in
September, 1973 it opened
with 38 children in grades K-5
at Temple Beth El.
Another milestone occurred
during the Federation's an-
nual meeting when 30 people
who underwrote $1,000 each
to enable the beginning of con-
struction at Camp Shalom
were honored. The mortgage
was burned symbolically,
marking the final payment of
the original $30,000 bank loan.
Mr. Adler spoke very highly
of Mr. Gordon s ac-
complishments and character.
"Steve was very dedicated to
his responsibilities as Presi-
dent despite the heavy
demands from his own firm.
He was always available for
Federation business. Steve
had a keen insight and always
felt that Jews had a respon-
sibility to each other and to
their community."

That's why we do more open
heart surgery than anyone else."
Few surgical procedures are
more critical to life itself than open
heart surgery. And, clearly, there are
few procedures where the experience
of the physician is more critical, more
So if you must have open heart
surgery, it should be of great comfort
to know that, led by Dr. James Jude,
the surgeons at The North Ridge
Heart Institute perform more open
heart procedures than any other hos-
pital in South Florida
In fact, over 4,000 people have
come to us for open heart surgery in
the last 10 years. For the experience
of our physicians. And the excellence
of our care.
Because along with our physi-
cians, Cardiovascular Clinical Nurse
Specialists give individual attention
and support to you and your family
throughout your hospital stay.
And after surgery, a comprehen-
sive rehabilitation program helps you
return to your normal life as quickly
as possible.
But we'd rather help you avoid
open heart surgery entirely. So we
offer one of the most advanced diag-
nostic testing and alternative treat-
ments available. Backed by the exper-
tise of Dr. Ali Ghahramani, who has

catheterizations and over 600 balloon
