In Meetings With President Reagan
Shamir Stresses Direct
Negotiations In Peace Process
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Israeli Premier Yitzhak
Shamir urged Egypt recently
to convince its fellow Arab
countries to enter into direct
negotiations with Israel.
"Egypt, a partner to the
Camp David Accords, could
"reasonable" method of bring-
ing about such negotiations
should be explored, including
an international conference."
Shamir, however, said the
"only viable cornerstone to
peace" is the method used by
Israel and Egypt in achieving
the Camp David Accords. "We
play a significant role' by en- I** ** "5 to our neighbors
couraging our other neighbors *"? U8,m ?** negotiations
for the obtaining of peace bet-
ween us," he said.
The Israeli Premier was
more direct after his meeting
at the State Department with
Secretary of State George
Shultz, when he called the idea
of an international forum "a
Soviet inspired notion sup-
ported by radical Arab
nations."
He said such a conference,
demanded by King Hussein of
Jordan, "will not bring peace
to our area."
Shultz, admitting that the
United States and Israel do
not see "eye-to-eye" on this
issue, said the U.S. believes
that "all options" that could
bring about direct negotiations
should be explored, including
an international conference.
"Our objective is not an in-
ternational conference, our ob-
jective is direct negotiations,"
Shultz stressed.
Shamir differs on this issue
with Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres, who believes an inter-
national conference may be the
only way to bring Jordan into
talks with Israel.
A senior Administration of-
ficial, briefing reporters on
Shamir's talks with Shultz and
Reagan, said that the U.S. is
to follow her example and
enter into face-to-face talks
with us without precondi-
tions," Shamir said after a
meeting and working lunch
with President Reagan at the
White House.
While both Reagan and
Shamir, in their statements in
front of the White House's
diplomatic entrance, stressed
that peace can be achieved on-
ly through direct negotiations,
the two leaders publicly stated
their differences over an inter-
national conference.
"Our goal now is setting in
motion a process acceptable by
Israel and its neighbors which
can lead to a comprehensive
settlement," Reagan said. He
said this requires "bilateral
negotiations,' adding that any
not trying to "play one side" in
the Israeli government against
the other. He said the U.S.
deals with the national unity
fovernment, headed by
hamir, as it did when Peres
was Premier.
Both Reagan and Shultz
stressed that any negotiations
must include "representative
Palestinians." Shamir also
agreed that negotiations
should include "represen-
tatives of Palestinians living in
the area." This apparently
meant Palestinians in the
West Bank and Gaza, rather
than from outside.
Reagan andShamir also said

JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The trial of John Demjanjuk
opened in Jerusalem District
Court Feb. 16 and imme-
diately became embroiled in
legal argument over the defen-
dant's identity and the court's
right to try him.
Demjanjuk's American at-
torney, Mark O'Connor, main-
tained that the accused is not
the former Treblinka death
camp guard who was known to
the inmates as "Ivan the Terri-
ble" because of his brutality
and who was held responsible
for the deaths in the gas
chambers of 850,000 Jews and
thousands of Gypsies.
FURTHERMORE, O'Con-
nor insisted, the Ukrainian-
born retired automobile
worker from Cleveland, Ohio,
is a victim of evidence
fabricated in the Soviet Union,
the victim of a KGB plot; and
that he was extradited from
the U.S. on a murder charge
but is now being charged with
war crimes, crimes against
humanity and crimes against
the Jewish people.
O'Connor also challenged
Israel's right to bring him to
trial because the alleged
crimes were not committed on
Israel's soil, were not commit-
ted against Israeli citizens, and
were not committed by a
citizen of Israel.
Judge Don Levin, president
of the three-judge panel hear-
ing the case, enjoined O'Con-
nor repeatedly to confine
himself strictly to the matter
of jurisdiction and to leave the
question of identity to a later
stage, after the prosecution
has presented its evidence.
BUT O'Connor insisted that
the issues were intertwined,
and the court allowed him to
present his arguments on both
jurisdiction and substantial
proof. In addition to Levin,
who is a Justice of the
Supreme Court, the panel con-
sists of two Jerusalem District
Court judges, Dalia Dorner

Arab Named As Israeli
Consul General In Atlanta
NEW YORK (JTA) In
an unprecedented move, the
government of Israel decided
to appoint a Moslem Arab
lawyer from the village of Kafr
Kara near Haifa, as Israel's
new Consul General in
Atlanta.
The decision to appoint
Muhammad Masarwa as
Israel's first Arab diplomat
was confirmed recently in
Jerusalem by Ehud Gol, the
spokesman for the Foreign
Ministry, and in New York by
Baruch Bina, a spokesman for
the Israel Consulate.
Bina told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that the
46-year-old Masarwa is ex-
pected to assume his new post
this summer after being con-
firmed by the Israel Cabinet.

He began his distinguished
service to the Jewish com-
munity in Palm Beach County
as General Campaign Chair-
man of the Jewish Federation-
United Jewish Appeal Cam-
paigns in 1977 and 1978 and
the organization's eighth
President.
Today the same qualities
that made Alan Shulman an ef-
fective and highly respected
leader locally, continue to
serve the Jewish people well
on a national and international
level as a member of Board
of Directors of the American
Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee and a national UJA
Vice Chairman holding the
portfolio of national Alloca-
tions Chairman.
Asked to reflect upon the
years 1979-81 when he presid-
ed over the Federation, Mr.
Shulman recalls the period as a
very exciting time. "I was
blessed with a group of very
dedicated, concerned, and
talented individuals who acted
as a family in futherance of the
development of a strong com-
munity which would secure the
needs of all Jews," he said.
During his unprecedented
three year administration, two
significant developments oc-
curred. He played a central
role in the development of the
Joseph L. Morse Geriatric
Center of the Jewish Home for
the Aged, a 120 bed resident
home and skilled nursing care
facility. "It was the first major

undertaking of significant size
as as we emerged from a small
Federation into our current
'large intermediate' designa-
tion," noted Mr. Shulman.
Nathan Appleman served as
honorary Chairman of the
Morse's building fund cam-
paign. In his capacity as Presi-
dent, Mr. Shulman headed an
active campaign team in-
cluding Erwin H. Blonder and
Heinz Eppler. Alec Engelstein
served as Chairman of the
Construction Committee. Mr.
Blonder was appointed to head
and organize the initial Board
of Directors of the Jewish
Home for the Aged.
During Mr. Shulman's ad-
ministration, Jewish education
became a major priority. "We
established the Midrasha-
Judaica High School (an after
school community high school
program for students in
grades 9-12) and set the foun-
dation for an educational
structure that has become an
integral and important compo-
nent of our communuity,"
stated Mr. Shulman. Elizabeth
Shulman spearheaded this ef-
fort as Chairman of the Educa-
tion Committee.
These years also saw a major
expansion of the Jewish Corn-

It's Our Turn To Be The Heroes
Planning Underway For Super Sunday '87
An enormous amount of planning is required to make
buper bunday an unqualified success, according to Terri
and Bernw Kurit. The Co-Chairmen of this year's all day
community wide phonathon to raise money for the 1987
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County-United Jewish
Appeal Campaign noted that five committees have been
established to assure a successful and smooth-running day.
On Mar. 22. Headquartered at the Airport Hilton, 400
volunteers will be calling thousands of community members
to ask them to make their 1987 commitment to the fund rais-
ing drive.
During the next several weeks, we will highlight the
chairmen and committee members of the various Super Sun-
day committees. This week the Registration; Arrangements
ami Decorations Committees will be featured, followed by
the Training and Youth Committees in subsequent weeks.
The Recruitment Committee was introduced in last week's
Jewish Floridian.

day," stated Deborah Brass,
Chairman of the committee.
"We get them off to a good
start.'7
Serving on the committee,
which is still in formation, are
Hinda Greenspoon, Marjorie
Berg, and Lila Abrams. Mrs.
Brass and her committee
members are looking forward
to a massive outpouring of
community support for the one
day phonathon. "The excite-
ment of Super Sunday is

do our part in helping our com-
munity work together to
achieve a common goal of help-
ing Jews locally, in Israel, and
around the world," stated
Mrs. Brass.

Making Sense Of
Arms Sales
Last month Sen. Joseph Biden (D., Del.) and Rep. Mel
Levine (D., Calif.) reintroduced a bill to amend the arms
Export Control Act. The measure cosponsored by Sens.
Claiborne Pell (D., R.I.). Rudy Boschwitz (R., Minn.),
Wendell Ford (D., Ky.) and Frank Lautenberg (D., N.J.),
and by Reps. Chris Smith (R., N.J.) and Larry Smith (D.,
Fla.) was proposed late last year, but the session ended
before it could be acted upon. It deserves to be approved,
and quickly, by the 100th Congress.
Known on Capitol Hill as the Biden-Levine bill, it would
restore the Congressional intent regarding controversial
U.S. arms sales which was overturned in a 1983 Supreme
Court decision. That ruling, in a case which had nothing to
do with weapons transfers, invalidated the legislative veto.
Previously, Congress had been able to reject proposed
arms sales by passing a concurrent resolution with simple
majorities.
Now, in order for Congress to halt an Administration-
proposed sale, Congress must first pass a joint resolution
and then be able to override a Presidential veto with two-
thirds majorities in both chambers. Last year's missile sale
to Saudi Arabia illustrated the problem the decision
created.
The Democratic-controlled House rejected the sale of
several hundred million dollars worth of missiles to Saudi
Arabia by a 365-62 margin; the Republican-led Senate turn-
ed it down 73-22. The President then vetoed the resolution
of disapproval and, with eight Senators shifting their votes,
the veto was sustained and the sale went through.
As Biden noted, a large, controversial arms sale was
allowed to proceed "on the basis of support of one-sixth of
the House of Representatives and one-third-plus-one in the
Senate." The Biden-Levine bill is intended to make sure
that any major sale of advanced American arms to coun-
tries not closely allied with the United States has majority
backing in both houses of Congress, not a one-third-plus-
one minority in one chamber. Exempted from the measure
would be NATO nations, Australia and New Zealand, and
signatories to the camp David Accords at this point
Israel and Egypt.
The Administration opposes the Biden-Levine bill, argu-

Project Otzma:
A Person To Person Experience
Bj LOUISE ROSS
Although halfway through
the first year of the new Otzma
S reject which strengthens the
onds between North
American Jewish communities
and Israel, preliminary evalua-
tions indicate that it is work-
ing very well. According to Dr.
David Mittelberg, a member of
the Tsraeli Forum responsible
for planning and monitoring
the program, the person to
person contact has been an
"outstanding success."
Dr. Mittelberg, who was in
the Palm Beaches recently to
address the Otzma Committee
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County, noted
that a key component of Otz-
ma is the matching of par-
ticipants with families in
Israel. This is the first time an
adoptive family program has
been tried in Israel. He em-
phasized that the ties that
have been developed between
the Israeli families and the
"Otzmaniks" have extended to
their families in the United
States. "Some parents in
America now feel that they
have to come to Israel to meet
the wonderful families (who
have 'adopted' their
children)," stated Dr.
Mittelberg.
Dr. Mittelberg is a lecturer
in sociology at Haifa Universi-
ty and serves as the Director
for the Institute for Research

Readers Write
Tom Kelly Will Be Missed
EDITOR,
The Jewish Floridian:
The resignation of Tom Kel-
ly as Editor of the Palm Beach
Post is an incalculable loss not
only to that newspaper but to
our entire Jewish community.
In great part, it was due to
Tom Kelly's leadership that
the Post developed from a
"local yokel" paper to a
newspaper worthy of prestige
for its editorial content.
In everything he wrote, Mr.
Kelly reflected his character:
that of a caring, involved, de-
cent human being. He told it as
it is with insight, courage, in-
tegrity and balanced quality
reporting. He always evidenc-
ed sincere interest in pro-
moting protection of our en-
vironment, sane growth
management, increased quali-
ty of life in our community
and, indeed, in the world, as
witness his involvement in the
struggle for human rights in
the Soviet Union.
I know many people join me
in wishing Tom Kelly great
success in his future
endeavors. It has been a
privilege to have had his
dedication and input these past
years.
Mr. Kelly takes with him
part of our hearts and a great
deal of our gratitude and
appreciation.
As the Irish say: "May the
wind always be at his back."

Phil Donahue And Soviet Refuseniks
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The 30-minute segment on
Soviet Jewry shown recently
(Feb. 11) on Phil Donahue's
syndicated television show
demonstrated why it is dif-
ficult to carry out in the Soviet
Union his normal format in
which a controversial issue is
debated by the audience.
Jewish refuseniks, with
whom he met in a Moscow
apartment, rejected an oppor-
tunity to explain their plight to
the large audience of
Americans that watch the
"PhU Donahue Show," ap-
parently because they did not
trust Donahue since his week-
long broadcasts from the
USSR were in cooperation
with Soviet television.
Other Jews, who, as
Donahue pointed out, were
selected by the Soviet govern-
ment to appear on the pro-
gram, refused to answer his
questions about refuseniks and
instead denounced conditions
in the United States.
DONAHUE POINTED out
that he had gotten an agree-
ment from the Soviets to nave
50 official Jews and 50
refuseniks debate the issue of
Jewish life in the Soviet Union.
But the day after Donahue got
the agreement of the
refuseniks to this, the Soviets
cut the number to 25 on each
side. The refuseniks then
declined to appear.
Donahue then met with the
refuseniks in an apartment of
one of them, stressing that he
was using his own camera
crew, rather than the Soviet
television crew he used for all
his other segments during the
week he spent in the USSR at
the end of January.
One refusenik said they had
rejected the cut in the number
of refuseniks because the
"group should be represen-
tative." He said it had to in*
elude 11 wives of prisoners,
five former prisoners, 12 Jews
from cities throughout the
Soviet Union, and longtime
refuseniks.
ONE WOMAN said she
feared the Soviets would use
the film against them on
Soviet TV. She said the Jews
"desire to live in Israel," but
when Donahue asked her how
long she had been waiting to
emigrate, she refused to say.
The group had agreed not to
answer any personal
questions.
DONAHUE SAID they
were being preoccupied with
the Soviet breaking of the
agreement "at the expense of
sharing important information
about your situation with the
American people."
He noted that some wives of
prisoners had wanted to speak
but went along with the deci-
sion of the group not to be
interviewed.
Donahue stressed that
before going to the USSR he
had contacted them through
the National
tne national Conference on
Soviet Jewry (NCSJ).
"With whom are you cavor-
ting?" one of the refuseniks
asked. Donahue said he did not
understand this at the time,
but later realized that this was
a reference to his "partner-
ship" with the Soviets during
his week in the USSR. "It is
clear for some of these
refuseniks I cannot be
trusted," he said.
In his segment in the televi-

Update
Opinion
By TOBY F. WILK
Kibbutzim can no longer be
associated with cowsheds and
orange groves. Today, almost
every kibbutz in Israel enjoys
several industries. A recent
Kibbutz Industries Fair in Tel
Aviv included products from a
ceramics factory which were
eagerly snapped up. The prize
for novelty, in Israel at least,
went to one particularly
adventurous kibbutz which is
specializing in the manufac-
ture of bidets. The kibbutzniks
responsible for moving into
the world of hygiene spent
most of their time at the Fair
explaining the aim of the new
froduct to puzzled or intrigued
sraelis.
In March, Project Inter-
change will send its third
delegation of Black American
leaders to Israel. Previous
seminars were very successful
and elicited positive action by
participants. These programs
are carried out by the Institute
for International Relations at
Hebrew University. In May,
there will be a Constitutional
Seminar of prominent jurists,
lawyers and teachers of law
and government. The seminar
in June will be for Christian
clergy. Project Interchange
has also sent Hispanic-
American leaders to Israel to
provide them with information
about and understanding of
key issues facing Israel. The
President of the Chicago
Board of Education wrote of
his experience: "It made me
realize how little I knew about
Israel and its people. It was a
tremendous learning
experience."
The International Red Cross
has added the words "And Red
Crescent" to their previous
designation. This move in-
cludes all Red Crescent
organizations in Moslem coun-
tries as part of the Interna-
tional Red Cross. The Interna-
tional Red Cross Conference
also stipulated that only na-
tional societies using the name
and emblem of the Red Cross
or Red Crescent can be
recognized as full members of
the society. This effectively ex-
cludes Israel's Magen David
Adorn Society, which fulfills all
the criteria of full membership
except for the emblem. Israel
has been trying to achieve full
membership in the interna-
tional body for decades, but
has been denied because of her
emblem. This isolates Israel
because it restricts full
membership recognition only
to those countries using Chris-
tian or Moslem emblems.
A Tel Aviv research team
has developed a simple, non-
surgical technique to vaporize
arterial plaque which
sometimes leads to heart at-
tacks. This may make heart
by-pass operations a thing of
the past.
Iraq and Iran continue their
battle which enters its 7th
year. Apart from the human
toll, military analysts estimate
the war has cost both sides
around $500 billion dollars,
making it one of the most ex
Pensive conflicts in history,
our years ago, the massacre
at Sabra and Shatila caused an
uproar in the so-called civilized
world. Again, the Jews (who
else?) were blamed. The Iran-
Iraq war continues. We hear
about it with horrifying detail,
and the world is mute. Today,
Shiites butcher Palestinians in
Lebanon and nobody cares.
When will the double standard
attitude regarding the Jews
end?
Israel has the highest voter
turnout record of the world's
democracies. In a part of the
world increasingly hostile to
American culture and basic
values, Israel is an oasis where
freedom is embraced with a
fervor unparalleled elsewhere
in the world. A bastion of
democracy, Israel has the
same concern for fundamental
human freedoms that has
characterized our own nation
for over 200 years.
If certain people have been
released by Soviet officials, it
is because they are less
dangerous free than in prison.
It also allows Gorbachev to
assume the role of genial
benefactor who overflows with
the milk of human kindness.
The fact remains that Soviet
Jewry emigration has
diminished to a trickle because
of conditions imposed by
Soviet officials and their
capacity to credit the posses-
sion of military secrets to a
man who spent two years peel-
ing Red Army potatoes 20
years ago. Under the new
Soviet emigration rules, the
trickle will become a seepage.
The Russians want to stage a
human rights conference in
Moscow. They have a long
road to go before this can be
anything but a farce. There is
a danger that in the "good-
will" of Gorbachev, we may
overlook the Nudels, the
Beguns, the Slepaks and too
many others who have been
and remain in harsh imprison-
ment for their refusal to be
estranged from their heritage.
We must speak out because
there are six million Jews who
can speak no more.
Bar Ilan University's recent
cancer research includes a
drug that promises to
strengthen the body's im-
munological defenses against
this disease without negative
side effects, and a machine
that is able to diagnose and
pinpoint the location of cancer
through blood samples.
Haifa is organizing special
welcome events for an influx
of sailors from the navies of

Volunteers Have Big Hearts
"Volunteers Have Big
Hearts," was the theme for a
volunteer recognition recep-
tion at Jewish Family and
Children's Service on Thurs-
day, Feb. 12, featuring vocalist
and long time board member,
Harry Lerner. The afternoon
reception included audience
participation in a medley of
songs selected to recognize
volunteers, the work that they
perform, and the caring rela-
tionships that develop between
people.
JFCS recognized 16
volunteers at the reception. As
each volunteer was introduc-
ed, the audience was told of
the individual volunteer's
special contribution to the
agency's function, and the
type of assistance that the
volunteer renders to agency

munity Day School. Property
was purchased on Parker
Avenue and arrangements
were made for renovations of
the existing building and con-
struction of new classrooms
before the school was officially
opened on its new site. "It was
an exciting period of time. So
many things were happening
at once. We were able to ac-
complish so much because
there were so many great peo-
ple on my team. It was a fun
time at Federation."
Alongside the construction
of new facilities to meet the
needs of the growing Jewish
community, the Federation
moved into new offices on
Flagler Drive and new pro-
grams and services were
developed. Rabbi Alan Sher-
man joined the Federation
staff as Chaplain and Com-
munity Relations Director.
Subsequently a Holocaust
Memorial Committee and a
Chaplain Aide program were
established. The Community
Relations Council held rallies
on behalf of Soviet Jewry in
West Palm Beach and Boca
Raton.
Mr. Shulman also set into
motion a Community Planning
Committee. It's charge was to
study and re-evaluate the com-
munity's needs based on the
expanding Jewish population.
It was at this time that
residents of Boca Raton felt
their interests could best be
served by establishing a
separate Federation. As a
result of Mr. Shulman's
negotiating skills in dealing
with sensitive issues and
dilemmas facing the com-
munities, a smooth transition
was accomplished.
By this time, the Federation-
UJA Campaign was raising
over43 million for local and in-
ternational needs. However, in
the second year of Mr.
Shulman's administration, the
newly established South Coun-
ty Federation conducted their
own Campaign and, as a
result, Campaign totals dipped
just below the $3 million mark.
The next year the Campaign

As the community continued
to grow, Mr. Shulman's vision

youth to the aged.
clients. Most volunteers at
JFCS act as friendly visitors,
case aides, visit lonely, home-
bound shut-ins, in order to lift
that person's spirits and pro-
vide companionship. Other
volunteers handle intake calls,

clerical functions.

Volunteer Coordinator, Ned
Goldberg, summed up the
value of agency volunteers, as
well as the theme of the recep-
tion, by stating, "These
volunteers add to the quality of
life of Jewish residents of
Palm Beach County, and as a
result, the clients of JFCS will
be forever grateful for their
services."

LENDER'S AND PHILLY,
A BREAKFAST TRADITION
SINCE 1927
For nearly 60 years sitting
down to a breakfast of Lender's
Bagels and PHILADELPHIA
BRAND Cream Cheese has
been a delicious tradition.
Recognized as the first
name in bagels since 1927,
the Lender family tradition of
quality still exists today in the
baking of their bagels-guar-
anteeing that every variety
has a taste and texture
second to none. In just
minutes, Lenders
Bagels toast up crispy
on the outside and soft
and chewy on the inside,
ready to be spread with either
plain PHILLY or one of the
tempting fruit or vegetable fla-
vors. And because PHILLY
has half the calories of butter
or margarine, you can enjoy
this satisfying combination
every day.
And, of course, both are
certified Kosher.

Friday, February 27, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 9
formed Jewish Community
Day School Network (JCDSN)
at an historic conference
recently held in West Palm
Beach. This new organization
for community day schools was
established with the en-
couragement of the Jewish
Education Service of North
America, Inc., (JESNA),
designed to give non-affiliated
day schools throughout the
United States and Canada an
opportunity to share and ex-
change ideas, budgets, cur-
ricular and other materials,
and especially to discuss the
common ideology which links
community schools.
According to Rabbi David
Shluker, Director of JESNA's
Department of Community
Consultation and Planning,
the schools comprising the
Network are either indepen-
dent or communally spon-
sored, receive Federation sup-
port, and embrace a pluralistic
approach to transmitting the
Jewish heritage and values in
their educational programs.
The schools are committed to a
set of principles which repre-
sent an ideological model for
transideological Jewish educa-
tion. While denominationally
affiliated schools interact with
existing denominational net-
works, the community day
schools have, until now, lacked
a unifying body and a central
address.
The establishment of this
new network was the result of
a two-and-a-half day meeting
where two dozen principals of
community schools and
JESNA staff met in conjunc-
tion with the Council for
Jewish Education's annual
conference.
A keynote address delivered
by Dr. Barry Chazan,
JESNA's Distinguished
Educator in Service and Pro-
fessor of Education at Hebrew
University, forcefully ar-
ticulated some philosophical
underpinnings for community
Jewish day schools. The group
acknowledged the validity of
all major streams of Jewish
thought, and the incorporation
of this principle into the cur-
ricula of community day
schools. This acknowledgment
implies that there exist many
possible options for the expres-
sion of Judaism. In addition,
the group underscored the im-
portance of showing apprecia-
tion and advocacy for the value
concept of "Klal Yisrael" and
promotion of participation in
Jewish community life.
Hussein
Meets Assad
Jordan's King Hussein met
with Syrian President Hafez
Assad last week in Damascus
to discuss the current situation
in Lebanon (Jordan Television,
Feb. 10). In Washington, State
Department officials asserted
that Jordan needed to mobilize
its I-Hawk anti-aircraft missile
batteries to defend against a
threat from Syria.

liana Sebo of the Jewish Day
School of Metropolitan Seat-
tle, and Dan Bennett of the

as co-chairpersons of the con-
ference. The Network, in addi-

tion. The special relationship of country club and Golf Pro-
fessional is one which Orsino and his staff uphold every day
with excellence as the foremost priority.
"We have an 'A-l' golf design at Indian Spring master-
minded by the renowned design team of Devlin and Von

Members are very appreciative of the extra attention the
golf staff gives them, Orsino notes.

Direct Negotiations

Continued from Page 1
ey discussed the situation of
oviet Jewry. "We took note
f recent releases, but are
aiting to see the gates truly
pened for Jewish emigra-
ion," Reagan said.
Shamir said Israel was
grateful" for Reagan's ef-
brts on behalf of "our
rothers and sisters" in the
SSR. He said the Soviet
nion must continue to be
ressed "to let all our people
eturn to our ancient
omeland, the land of Israel."
Iran was discussed by
hamir with both Reagan and
hultz. Reagan said it was
eed that Iran should be en-
uraged to end terrorism and
he use of force. He added that
t was also agreed that it was
mportant to "look to the
ture instead of dwelling on
he past."
Shamir said that while Iran
as a leading supporter of ter-
orism, it was an important
country in the Mideast and in-
dicated that ways should be
found to exert "influence" on
it.
As for the U.S. sale of arms
to Iran, Shultz said this was an
American decision. The Ad-
ministration official briefing
reporters said that Israel has
agreed to cooperate with the
various American investiga-
tions of the Iranian arms sales.
Both Reagan and Shamir
pointed to the U.S. decision to
give Israel the status of a "ma-
jor non-NATO ally," which
allows it to bid on Defense
Department research and
development contracts.
Shamir called this a "new
dimension to our relations."
Also discussed was the
Israeli economy and Israel's
agreement to allow the U.S. to
build a relay station for the
Voice of America in Israel.
Not discussed, according to
officials, was the case of
Jonathan Pollard who was
awaiting sentencing after
pleading guilty to spying for
Israel. When Shamir was ask-
ed about the Pollard case he
called it "a very painful ex-
perience" for Israel and said
spying on the U.S. was "not a
policy of the Israeli
government."
Shamir concluded his
remarks to Reagan by noting
that this year was the 200th
anniversary of the U.S. con-
stitution and the 90th anniver-
sary of the Zionist movement.
Project Otzma:

of the Kibbutz. In addition to
his volunteer work with the
Israeli Forum, he is conduc-
ting an evaluation of Otzma
throughout the year. Having
immigrated from Australia to
Israel in 1972, Dr. Mittelberg
now lives on a kibbutz near
Haifa with his wife and two
children.
The Otzma program is an
outgrowth of the commitment
by young leadership in Israel
and the United States to do
something for the Jewish peo-
ple, according to Dr. Mit-
tleberg. He sees the program
as unique in the area of lay
commitment as well as hosting
by Israeli families. "The per-
son to person contact is what
makes this program so
special," he said. Members of
the Israeli Forum make
themselves available to the
American volunteers pro-
viding each Otzma participant
with both a support system
while in Israel and a perma-
nent personal tie to Israel
afterwards.
The Otzma program is spon-
sored by the Council of Jewish
Federations and communities
throughout the United States
[including the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County)
md the Israeli Forum, a newly
developed volunteer organiza-
tion of young, successful
Israeli business entrepreneurs,
academians, kibbutzniks, and
others concerned about
strengthening ties between
Israel and the Diaspora. Gifted
young adults between the ages
of 18-24 with leadership poten-
tial are given an opportunity to
experience 10 months of public
service to Israel and the
Jewish people.
Participants from the Palm
Beaches will take part in the
program beginning this up-
coming August and will live,
study, and work in several
places in Israel. They may
have the chance to serve in this
community's Project Renewal
neighborhood, Hod Hasharon.
Volunteers will also learn
Hebrew, work on a kibbutz,
take part in ongoing study
seminars, and participate in a
moshav.
The program for local young
adults is subsidized by the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County. Total cost for
the 10 month experience is
$750. Applications should be
received by April 30. For ap-
plications and more informa-
tion, contact Mark Mendel,
Leadership Development
Director, at the Federation of-
fice, 832-2120.

reported that the supervisor of
refugee affairs in Sudan said
the country's security
authorities will continue to
hold the Ethiopian Jews until a
decision is made regarding
their fate. There has been no

Arms Sale
Continued from Pafe 4
ing that arms sales to "moderate" Arab countries can help
encourage the Arab-Israeli peace process. Unfortunately,
there islittle evidence so far to support that view.
A second argument for such sales in the Middle East
to help "pro-Western" Arab states resist aggression has
other flaws. A number of such countries are leery of
military cooperation with the United States. One such na-
tion is Kuwait. But now that the Iranian offensive in Iraq
threatens it, America helps defend Kuwait without such
sales by sending U.S. ships just offshore in the Persian
Gulf.
Instead of winning friends and promoting peace, such
sales have helped fuel regional arms races, burdened
already fragile regimes, and endangered our real friends.
Passage of the Biden-Levine legislation no doubt spur-
red by the investigations of the secret Iranian arms
shipments will restore needed Congressional oversight
to major American weapons sales.
(Near East Report)
Donahue and Refuseniks
Continued from Page 5
sion study, Donahue met with
25 Jews who he called
"contented Jews," who are
"the Jews the Russians want
the West to see." They were
apparently members of the of-
ficial Anti-Zionist Committee.
WHEN DONAHUE noted
that the NCSJ reports that
380,000 Jews want to
emigrate, one of these Jews
called the figure "absolute
fantasy."
Another said he had no ob-
jection to those who wanted to
leave to emigrate, but said "I
don't feel there is any kind of
problem" for Jews. Another
declared that emigration is
"not the major problem" for
Soviet Jews.
When a writer suggested
that Donahue ask about the
life of the Jews present, the
television host replied "I don't
tell you how to write your
books so you won't tell me
what questions to ask."
Samuil Zivs, deputy director
of the Anti-Zionist Committee
of the Soviet Republic the only
Jew to be identified, claimed
that 500 Jews had been given
permission to leave in
January. Less than 1,000
emigrated in all of 1986.
DONAHUE WAS challeng-
ed by a Jewish military officer,
who asked why he was not con-
cerned about the Palestinians.
"We are all internationalists;
we all must be equal, the
Americans, the Jew, the
Palestinians."
Another said that instead of
worrying about Soviet Jews,
"why are you not concerned
about the fate of the poor
Blacks" in the U.S. He charg-
ed that many of the Soviet
Jews living in New York's
Brighton Beach section "are
suffering, they are hungry."
When another suggested
that only 20 percent of the
Jewish emigrants have gone to
Israel with most living in New
York and Canada, Donahue
replied "why do you care?"
He said he was willing to
concede that the Jews in the
audience were "happy," free
to pursue their careers and
free of prejudice, but asked
why they were angry when he
raised the real plight of the
Jews who wanted to leave and
were being persecuted for
that.
WHILE THE broadcast
may have revealed to some the
Soviet Union's desire to hide
the real situation of Soviet
Jewry, whatever opportunity
there was to demonstrate the
real situation for thousands of
Jews was lost. Perhaps there
was never a chance since it is
impossible to bring the give-
and-take of the Donahue show
to a totalitarian society.

nian Orthodox cleric, Bishop
Antony, who came from the
U.S. to attend the early state
of the trial and offer his
assistance to the defendant.
Ukrainian-American groups
are believed to be financing
Demjanjuk's defense.
The trial is expected to last
at least three months. The pro-
ceedings are conducted in
Hebrew and translated
simultaneously into English
and Ukrainian. Attorney
O'Connor's words are
translated from English to
Hebrew by an interpreter at
his side.
His assertion that the
charges brought against Dem-
janjuk are inconsistent with
the charge of murder on which
he was extradited from the
U.S. was rebutted by State At-
torney Yona Blattman, who
noted that the American
courts and the U.S. Depart-
ment of Justice were fully
aware of the crimes that Israel
attributes to Demjanjuk and
therefore the legal
technicalities of the charge
sheet were not relevant.
Blattman is assisted by State
Attorneys Dennis Goldman,
Michael" Shaked and Michael
Horovitz. O'Connor has an
Israeli lawyer, Yoram Sheftel,
assisting him on points of
Israeli law. Sheftel told
reporters before the trial open-
ed that he was "eager to do
battle" because he is convinc-
ed Demjanjuk is a victim of
mistaken identity. He said he
would not have taken the case
otherwise.
A DECLARED purpose of
the trial is to acquaint the
younger generation of Israelis
with the terrible realities of
the Holocaust. The Israel
Defense Force and the Educa-
tion Ministry plan to brine
soldiers and high school
students to attend the ses-
sions, which will be held four
days a week.
The proceedings are being
broadcast live by Israel Radio.
Galei Zahal, the Army Radio,
is offering frequent updates,
summaries and commentaries
throughout the day. But Israel
Television declined to broad-
cast the trial live on grounds
that it is too expensive and
there is insufficient public
interest.

A View From A Member
The Comprehensive Senior Center, through a Federal
Grant Title III of the Older Americana Act, funded by
Gulfstream Area Agency on Aging, provides a variety of ser-
vices to persons 60 years or older, along with interesting and
entertaining educational and recreational programs. All
senior activities are conducted in compliance with Title VI of
the Civil Rights Act.
By IDA ALTER
With a tremendous influx of
- population, particularly senior
citizens, in our area, it did not
take long for the JCC to see
the great need of the adults of
West Palm Beach to have a
place where they could come
together, talk, socialize, learn,
grow, expand their talents to
entertain and to be entertain-
ed. So JCC CSSC was born in
1977.
Over the years, we have seen
people grow in many ways: in
the writing classes, drama, in
learning how to cope with
stress, doing aerobics and ex-
ercises, and expanding and
learning new skills. The
writing class was so prolific
that a book was published with
the writings of the
participants.
The Timely Topics Discus-
sion group on Monday after-
noon has been an ongoing class
for nine years, and the sub-
jects discussed are all topics of
interest particularly in the
news, and these are discussed
on a very high level.
We have had lecturers from
all professions come and talk
to us: chiropractors, or-
thopedists, nutritionists, op-
thomologists and every heal-
ing medium has been invited to
speak to us to enhance our
health and our lives.
We have had classes on cop-
ing how to deal with stress
from time to time with
qualified moderators. Doctors
and scientists are saying, more
and more, that stress is
disease causing, so it is most
important to our health to be
able to deal with stress. The
lectures on stress have been
most rewarding and have
helped shape our lives in many
ways.
When the Kosher Lunch
Program began, we were all
ecstatic. Hot lunches are pro-
vided every day at the JCC and
7 frozen meals weekly are pro-
vided to the homebound. Once
you tasted them you were
hooked. We had forgotten
what kosher food tastes like.
Friday lunch is especially well
attended for on this day we
"bench licht" for Shabbat, and
the Shabbat prayer is recited.
This hot lunch, for many, is
the only complete meal they
have during the day. It is
delicious and nourishing,
prepared with nutritional
balancing in mind. Once a
month, a big birthday cake is
brought out, courtesy of a kind
donor, and everyone
celebrates the honorees of the
month.
Most important, the JCC has
seen and met the needs of our
community. Getting the older
people, sometimes the
lonesome and lonely, to leave
their homes and come out and
learn and socialize is their
great accomplishment.
Transportation is provided for
people to go to the Center for
meals, to doctor appointments,
to hospitals, to nursing homes
to visit spouses, and treatment
centers for those people who
do not drive or cannot use the
public transportation.
We have had bazaars, care
parties, holiday celebrations
all through the years. We've
had sightseeing trips and trips
to theaters, health spa and
even one day outings.
A large group of volunteer
workers give much of their
time and expertise to the
Center throughout the year.
To them, we are very grateful.
To sum it all up, in the ten
years we have grown from a
tiny social group to a caring,
dependable agency dedicated
to serve the seniors of the
Jewish community, and
others.
But this is only the beginn-
ing. There are future plans for
a grand Center with hopefully
more and more services for
seniors and to persons of all
ages, and with God's help we
hope we will realize this very
soon.
On Mar. 12, the Senior pro-
gram will be celebrating its
Tenth Anniversary. A lun-
cheon at the Joseph L. Morse
Geriatric Center by invitation
will be held at noon with an
Open House for everyone
following at 3:30 p.m. at the
Center.

Ambassador Nickel, Congressman Wolpe Debate
Efficacy Of Sanctions Against South Africa

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.
Two diverging views on the
efficacy of employing sanc-
tions against South Africa to
bring about an end to that
country's apartheid policies
were offered recently to
Jewish community relations
leadership by Herman W.
Nickel, the former U.S. am-
bassador to South Africa, and
Representative Howard L.
Wolpe, of Michigan, Chairman
of the House Foreign Affairs
Subcommittee on Africa.
"The only plausible case for
sanctions is not as a peaceful
alternative but as a way of ag-
gravating polarization and
hastening revolution," Nickel
told the 43rd annual plenary
session of the National Jewish
Community Relations Ad-
visory Council.
"No one argues that the ap-
plication of sanctions will in
itself bring an end to apar-
theid," Wolpe said. Asserting
that the white minority "will
not yield power until they con-
clude there are more costs
than benefits involved in conti-
nuing the present situation,"
Wolpe said "the short-term
costs of sanctions are better
than the long-term costs of
protracted violence."
Both Nickel and Wolpe
agreed that the longer negotia-
tions between black and white
leadership in South Africa is
delayed, the society will
become more polarized and
violence will increase. But they
differed sharply in their
perceptions of the situation,
with Wolpe urging understan-
ding of South African black's
struggle to achieve equal
rights and political power, and
Nickel warning of Soviet
designs on South Africa.
Wolpe pointed out that on
the questions of imposing
sanctions aginst Poland,
Nicaragua, and Libya, little
debate took place among
Americans, and few expressed
concern about the impact of
sanctions "on those we want
An Historic And
Unprecedented Move
*
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
As it approaches the end of the
39th year since its founding,
the State of Israel has made an
historic and unprecedented
move it has appointed a
young Israeli Arab to an im-
portant and prestigious
diplomatic post abroad.
Muhammad Masarwa, a
45-year-old lawyer from Kufer
Kara village near Hadera, will
be Israel's next Consul
General in Atlanta, a post he
assumes next summer. He will
be the first non-Jew to head an
Israeli diplomatic mission
anywhere, and his appoint-
ment demonstrated Israel's
confidence in itself and in its
750,000 Arab citizens.
MASARWA IS Moslem. He
speaks Hebrew with fluency
and eloquence, as he does
English and Arabic. He heads
a successful law firm in
Hadera and has often
represented the mainstream of
Israel's Arab society at public
events. He combines boyish
good looks and silvery curly
hair, with the shrewd in-
telligence often attributed to
his profession.
Masarwa is not particularly
excited by his elevation to the
highest position ever held by
an Israeli Arab. "This should
have been done a long time
ago, in other offices as well.
The excitement is over the fact
that after much talk something
was done," he told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency in an in-
terview after his appointment
was announced last week.
PREVIOUSLY th highest
position held by an Arab in
Israel was Deputy Minister of
Health, occupied until the ear-
ly 1970s by the late Abdul Aziz
Zuabi of Nazareth, a Mapam
Knesset member. A Druze,
Sheik Jaber Muadi, was Depu-
ty Minister of Communications
and Agriculture.
But there have been no
Arabs in senior positions since
1977. There has been talk
recently of appointing an Arab
to the Supreme Court, but this
has yet to materialize.
"There is no reason why an
Arab should not be appointed
Director General or Deputy
Director General of a govern-
ment ministry," Masarwa
said.
But he does not favor a
"symbolic" appointment of an
Arab as a Minister or a
Supreme Court Justice just
because he is an Arab.
"I believe that Arab citizens
of Israel should have an equal
opportunity to put forward
their candidacy to any civil ser-
vice opening," Masarwa said.
"Once this is done, I believe
that Israel's Arabs will become
full partners to the Jews in
Israel and gain the place they
deserve in the society."
HE IS convinced there are
plenty of Arabs capable of fill-
ing such jobs. But they face a
"technical limitation" the
condition often demanded by
Israeli employers, public and
private alike, that only
veterans of the Israel Defense

He said that the young Arab
lawyer, who was at one time
the mayor of his village, will
replace the present Israel Con-
sul General in Atlanta,
Yissaschar Katzir. Deputy
Consul Genera] Arthur Kol
will continue his service under
Masarwa, Bina said.
The new appointment was
made by Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres at the behest of
Masarwa's mentor, Minister-
Without-Portfolio Ezer
Weizman.
Peres and his advisors have
been seeking for some time a
qualified Arab Israeli, to join
the Israeli foreign service, as
part of Israel's efforts to ac-
cord the Arab minority more
rights and privileges and to im-
prove Israel's image abroad in
regard to the treatment of its
Arab citizens. There are about
750,000 Arabs livjng in Israel
today.
to help most." In the case of
South Africa, however, the
debate has been protracted,
implying ambivalence in U.S.
policy that "undermines our
moral authority and influence"
Wolpe said.
"It is difficult for Americans
to come to terms with South
Africa because Americans con-
tinue to view the conflict in
South Africa through a racial
prism," Wolpe said. "The
reality is that most Americans
have had no contact with the
African continent, and our
perception is based on racial
myths and stereotypes."
Nickel said that the Com-
prehensive Anti-Apartheid
Act of 1986, adopted by the
Congress, overriding a
presidential veto, had led to in-
creased political repression,
press censorship, and
economic misery for South
African blacks, leading to an
increase in the level of
violence. He contended that
those elements within the
black community who are
resorting to violence "hardly
can be expected to respect
liberal democratic values and
due process of law if they were
to come to power."
The imposition of sanctions
and the withdrawal of
American companies from
South Africa is "destructive to
American influence and objec-
tives," Nickel said. He urged
the Jewish leaders attending
the NJCRAC Plenum to en-
courage U.S. firms operating
in South Africa to comply with
the Sullivan principles, rather
than pursuing what he called a
policy of "unqualified
divestiture" of portfolios in
such companies.
Dismissing the charge that
those who oppose the use of
sanctions do not oppose apar-
theid, Nickel endorsed the
Sullivan principles as an exam-
ple of "effective action" that
contributes to bettering the
lives of blacks in South Africa.
The Sullivan principles, he
said, "have had a significance
that goes far beyond the
shrinking number of U.S. com-
panies that still operate in
South Africa in setting stan-
dards that have materially
raised the standards of lives of
black workers."
"The nearly 200 million
dollars which Sullivan code
companies have spent in the
fields of education, training
and housing have in my view
helped the victims of apartheid
far more than those who have
demonstrated in favor of their
leaving," Nickel said.
Wolpe argued, however,
that the impact of the Sullivan
principles was marginal, since
only 48,000 blacks are
employed by American firms,
while the total black popula-
tion of South Africa is 23
million.
Nickel urged American
Jewish leadership to work
closely with and provide finan-
cial support to South African
Jewish individuals and
organizations working to aid
"the victims of apartheid in
fighting hunger and disease, in
housing and in legal
assistance." He said "What
better way for Jewish
organizations in this country
to demonstrate that they stand
shoulder to shoulder with
South African Jews, who are
struggling to advance racial
justice in positive and practical
ways."
Congressman Wolpe said
"the core of the violence that
is taking place in South Africa
is the apartheid system itself."
He called South Africa "one of
the most thorough and com-
prehensive totalitarian police
states" in the world.

Force be hired.
Israeli Arabs are not permit-
ted to serve in the IDF for
security reasons. But Masarwa
believes this is often used as a
pretext not to employ Arabs.
"One should do away with this
barrier," he said.
Masarwa began his public
life in 1963 as secretary of the
Arab Student Union of the
Hebrew University in
Jerusalem. At that time, there
was a campaign to abolish the
military government which
had been in charge of Israel's
Arab population since the war
for independence in 1948.
Masarwa was active in that
campaign.
In 1976, he became the first
- and youngest Arab
elected mayor of his village
when the system of direct elec-
tions was instituted. He held
office for two years. He was
elected Mayor again in 1983.
Last May he resigned, in com-
pliance with a rotation of
power agreement, and now
serves as Deputy Mayor.
Masarwa was not affiliated
with any political party until
Ezer Weizman invited him to
join his new Yahad Party
before the 1984 Knesset
elections.
HE WAS sixth on Yahad's
list, but the party won only
three Knesset seats. When
Yahad merged with the Labor
Party last month, Masarwa of-
ficially became a Laborite.
It is believed that Masarwa's
appointment to Atlanta was
due in large measure to Weiz-
man's influence with the
Foreign Ministry, headed by
Labor Party leader Shimon
Peres. He was one of four can-
didates considered for the
post.
Masarwa says he and Weiz-
man "have a lot in common,
both on local issues and on
Israel's foreign and peace
policies." He does not see any
possible conflict of interest
between his private views and
the official policy of the
