Shamir: Coalition
Threatened 4*
Cantor Norman Brody of Temple Beth El
leads the Hatikvah and Star Spangled Ban-
ner to kick-off the Mobilization Day for
Soviet Jewry. The rally on behalf of Soviet
Jewry waa aimultaneoualy held on Feb. 26
at the Palm Beach County Government
Center courtyard, in citiee throughout the
United States and in 43 coaatriee all over
the world. Organized by B'nai B'rith Inter-
national, B'nai B'rith Women, Anti-
Defamation League, B'nai B'rith Hillel,
and B'nai B'rith Youth Organization, 41
speakers at the local rally called attention
to the plight of Soviet Jewry. Two hundred
names of refuseniks were read from a new
telephone book size B'nai B'rith publica-
tion which lists the names and current
situation of over 11,000 Soviet Jews
wishing to emigrate but denied the right to
do so. The reading of the whole bat of
names waa completed at rallies throughout
the world in order to send a message to the
Soviet authorities that the harsh conditions
under which Soviet Jewry currently exists
will not be forgotten by their brothers and
sisters in the West.
After a stormy Cabinet ses-
sion last Sunday, Israeli Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir said
that Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres' support for an interna-
tional peace conference was
threatening the coalition
In talks with Egyptian Presi-
dent Hosni Mubarak held in
late February, Peres proposed
an international forum on the
Israeli-Arab dispute. Although
this initiative was embraced by
Mubarak, it was opposed by
It was reported that Shamir
is saying that the coalition
could break up unless the two
major parties agreed to follow
a similar policy.
"There are government
guidelines on policy, either we
act according to agreed
guidelines or we part com-
pany," Shamir was quoted as
During the two-day trip to
Cairo, Peres and his Egyptian
counterpart Ahmed Esmat
Abdel-Maguid issued a joint
statement calling for "the con-
vening in 1987 of an interna-
tional conference leading to
direct negotiations."
When Peres returned to
Israel, he made clear to
reporters that the issues of
Palestinian representation and
Soviet participation had yet to

him from the country, PLO
second-in-command Khalil
Wazir (Abu Jihad) returned to
Jordan last month for discus-
sions with Minister for Oc-
cupied Land Affairs Marwan
Doudine. The meetings were
initiated when Saudi Arabia
contributed $9.5 million to an
Arab League fund for the
Palestinians administered
jointly by Jordan and the PLO.
Although the PLO executive
committee had expressed hope
for broader political ties with
Jordan, Doudine emphasized
that the meeting did not mean
a resumption of cooperation
between the two sides.

Women's Division 1981-83
It may have been a period of
"firsts' for Women's Division,
but it was the "third" time
that Cynnie List headed the
organization since its incep-
tion. When there was a need,
she was there to help with her
expertise and commitment.
"By the second year of my
administration (1983), we were
going gang busters. It was
really exciting. This was big
business we were now a
larger community and were
reaching out to a lot more
women, remembered Mrs.
The diversified range of
Women's Division programm-
ing was marked by bow tradi-
tional successes and in-
novative "firsts," according to
Mrs. List. As she recounted
those active and productive
years, most programs she
listed were preceded by "it
was our first. ."
In 1983 seven represen-
tatives from the Business and
Professional Women's Net-
working Group went to Israel
on the first Cameo UJA Mis-
sion for B and P Women. "We
were one of the first local com-
munities to sponsor this trip
comprised of similar women
from all over the country.
Many of our women who went
on this misison are in leader-
ship roles today," Mrs. List
said proudly.
Believing that the ability to
lead an organization is a lear-
nable skill, Mrs. List encourag-
ed Women's Division to offer a
Leadership Skills Institute,
another first. Women from
Women's Division Board, as
well as those who sat on the
Executive Committees of
women's organizations
throughout the community,
had the opportunity to hone
their supervisory know-how.
To acquaint Women's Divi-
sion's Executive Committee
and Board of Directors with
the Federation's four
beneficiary agencies, Women's
Division conducted two Mini-
Missions. These educational on
location tours were the
forerunner of many more such
successful trips reaching out to
women from all over the

Division Board of Directors during her Presidency in the ear-
ly 1980's.
Division Campaign, several
new events were instituted
under Mrs. List's administra-
tion. "This was the period
when we began our inaugural
Lion of Judah event that has
mushroomed in the ensuing
years. Our B and P women
had their first opportunity to
become involved in the Cam-
paign and we held a fund rais-
ing tennis tournament where
we presented the winners with
the Federation Cup," Mrs.
List said.
As a result of these and the
traditional Campaign events,
Women's Division's Campaign
topped the $1 million mark for
the first time in 1982 and has
continued to climb upwards
each successive year.
Mrs. List attributed her suc-
cess in promoting leadership
training, and innovative
outreach, educational, and
fund raising programs to the
lay and professional people
working alongside her. In the
Federation's 1983 Annual
Report, she wrote, "I have had
the opportunity of working
with a dynamic team of corn-
mi ted, capable and creative
women .. because of their in-
volvement and dedication, our
Women's Division proudly con-
tinues to play a major role in
our Federation and in the
overall development of our
Jewish community in Palm
Beach County."

for attacks on Jews. He also
was fined two million lire.

College Students On Spring Break
Live An Adventure In Israel With Otzma
Friday, March 6.1937/The Jewish Floridiao of Palm Beach County Page 3
This year's Spring Break for
college students may be more
than the usual time to relax
and get ready for the next
semester. Those who take time
out from their vacation to
learn more about the Otzma
project may find themselves in
Israel next August experienc-
ing an unforgettable year of
public service to their spiritual
homeland and the Jewish
"We want to send our
special young adults to Israel,
educate them in the Hebrew
language and culture, ask
them to work with their hands,
their hearts and their minds,"
stated Milton Gold, Chairman
of the Otzma Committee of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, local sponsors
of the program. "Through this
wonderful and unique oppor-
tunity, our future leaders will
be assured."
According to Mr. Gold, by
exposing young volunteers to
the realities and complexities
of Israeli society, they will tru-
ly share in nation building.
Central to the Otzma project
is Ulpan and Kibbutz,
agricultural work on a moshav
and social service in a Project
Renewal community. But
something far more elusive
and special is also part of the
program. The young adults
Hoffman To Head Budget
And Allocations Committee
Helen Hoffman has been
named to chair the Budget
and Allocations Committee of
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County. The appoint-
ment was made by Erwin H.
Blonder, President, who said,
"As Chairman of our Com-
munity Relations Committee
as well as in many other
capacities in Federation,
Helen has demonstrated her
expert leadership and outstan-
ding insight into the vital
issues confronting the Jewish
community today. I am
honored that she has accepted
this key position," stated Mr.
According to Dr. Hoffman,
Federation budgeting is a
basic partner in the communi-
ty planning process. "We will
be concerned with funding pro-
grams which will best serve
the total Jewish community.
To facilitate this process, we
will be consulting with our
beneficiary agencies (local and
overseas) to better understand
their needs as well as keeping
ourselves constantly aware of
community priorities as
established by the Federa-
tion's Board of Directors," she
Dr. Hoffman noted that the
basic function of the Budget
and Allocation Committee was
to act as trustee for contribu-
tions to the Federation-UJA
Campaign to assure that the
funds will be used effectively.
"We also serve as trustee on
behalf of the community to
meet Jewish needs using
limited available resources.
We concern ourselves with ef-

Arab Arab-Baiting
Following the arrests in Los Angeles in late January of
seven Palestinian Arabs all Jordanian citizens and the
Kenyan-born wife of one of them, several Arab-American
representatives renewed charges that their community has
been singled out for harassment by the federal govern-
ment. One alleged "an obvious racist effort to incite fear
and violence" against Arab-Americans. He claimed the Los
Angeles case was meant to "create a precedent to allow the
rounding up, detention and expulsion of immigrants based
solely on their ethnic and political beliefs....
Reality, or self-induced hysteria?
Seven of those picked up by the U.S. Immigration and
Naturalization Service, following an FBI investigation,
were described as members or associates of the Popular
Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). The PFLP,
led by the pro-Soviet George Habash, is one of the three
core factions of the PLO, along with Yasir Arafat's Fatah
and Naif Hawatmeyh's Democratic Front for the Libera-
tion of Palestine (DFLP). Habash's bloody brand of politics
can be seen in the fact that he attacks Arafat for being too
"moderate." His group was responsible for a number of
aircraft hijackings including the 1976 Entebbe piracy
and, reportedly, some of the attacks on U.S. Marines in
Beirut in 1983.
The FBI found no evidence that California PFLP sup-
porters planned to commit a violent act in the near future.
Instead, INS decided to seek their deportation on grounds
of immigration violations. One reason for the low-level ap-
proach, apparently, was to avoid publicity vuile Americans
continue to be taken and held prisoner by Arab terrorist
groups in Lebanon. Habash himself had urged the "liquida-
tion of U.S. interests throughout the Arab world" after
America's bombing of Libya last April.
INS denied the existence of any plan to round up and ex-
pel groups of Arabs in the United States. It did
acknowledge contingency planning to deal with possible
outbreaks of terrorism in this country. Nevertheless, an of-
ficial of one Arab American group blasted away at
"wholesale character assassination based on ethnic
INS officials in Los Angeles said they were ready to go
forward with the case. They should, not to discriminate
against any particular group, but to prove, if they can, that
acts punishable by deportation were committed.
But the larger issue alleged anti-Arab or anti-Islamic
harassment, deserves a separate discussion. The govern-
ment must be in the business of investigating terrorist
groups and their representatives on American soil. Sup-
port of a murderous group like the PFLP is a legitimate
cause for concern.
Underlying the larger issue is the fact that a considerable
amount of terrorism stems from the Middle East, is con-
ducted by Arab Moslems and is often sponsored by Arab
and Islamic states such as Syria, Libya and Iran. The
Islamic Jihad terrorist group chose its name not as an
advertising gimmick but as a statement of principle. So too
with the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Some pro-Arab spokesmen pretend that to recognize
these points is to label all or most Arabs or Moslems as ter-
rorists. What they really want to do is to make honest
discussion of the problem impossible.
They may have additional reasons to cry wolf, to be Arab
Arab-baiters. They may hope to increase the generally
small memberships of their organizations by convincing
Arab Americans of a bogus governmental threat to their
But real Arab Arab-baiting is going on today in the
Middle East. The siege of Palestinian Arab districts in
Lebanon by the Amal militia Shiite Arabs versus Sunni
Arabs has in recent months killed more than 500 people
and reportedly reduced starving Palestinians to eating
dogs and cats. One thing which makes the Shiites fight so
brutally is the memory of PLO brutality before Israel
ousted the PLO from Lebanon in 1982.
Those Arab American groups which insist on apologizing
for the PLO, which invite the likes.of Louis Farrakhan and
Yasir Arafat to address their conventions, which deny the
vioLut reality of much inter-Arab Middle Eastern politics,
which campaign more actively against Israel than for Arab
Americans do have a problem. And it is not U.S. govern-
ment harassment.

Possible Government Crisis,
Soviet Jewry Addressed
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
wound up his official visit to
the U.S. Tuesday (Feb. 24)
with summations of the major
issues of concern to Israel and
world Jewry that engaged him
during the past 10 days here.
His last 48 hours in the coun-
try were packed with literally
end-to-end meetings with na-
tional and local Jewish com-
munity leaders, Jewish youth,
educators and religious
leaders. He addressed himself
repeatedly to the subject of
Soviet Jews who immigrate to
the United States rather than
to Israel. And, mainly in
response to the persistent
questions of reporters, he
Yitzhak Shamir
spoke frankly of the serious
rift betwen himself and Vice
Premier/Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres over an interna-
tional peace conference for the
Middle East to which Shamir
is adamantly opposed.
HE HINTED, on more than
one occasion, that if not resolv-
ed, that issue may well bring
down the Labor-Likud unity
coalition government.
Shamir spoke before the con-
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organiza-
tions here last Monday after-
ioon. On that night, he ad-
dressed 1,500 young leaders of
the New York Jewish com-
munity at Hunter College.

Young Adult Division
To Hold 3rd Business Executives Forum
Building on the first two suc-
cessful Business Executives
Forums, the Young Adult
Division of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County will
hold its third such event on
Thursday, Mar. 19,6-8 p.m., at
the elegantly restored Gulf
Stream Hotel, Lake Worth.
The announcement was made
by Bruce Alexander and David
Shapiro, BEF Co-Chainnen.
The Co-Chairmen noted that
the forums were fast becoming
a very successful business and
social networking vehicle. "At
each event more and more
young business and profes-
sional members of our Jewish
community find this an ideal
place to meet with each other,
exchange business cards, hear
about the latest business
developments, and become
part of a fast growing
organization. We look forward
to welcoming many new peo-
ple as well as those who con-
tinue to enjoy our Business
Executives Forum programs."
The Forum is sponsored by
the Young Adult Division in an
effort to encourage further
participation in the Jewish
Federation and the enhance-
ment of the Jewish community
through the development of
new business opportunities
and an awareness of Jewish
and business related topics.
Members of the BEF com-
mittee are P"hilip Balas, Bon-
nie J. Blate, Hewitt Bruce,
Terrance Cohen, Jonathan
Flah, Jacqueline Ipp, Morris
Kener, Steven Lippock and
Charlotte Morpurgo.
Additional committee
members are Peggy Mor-
purgo, Peter Morpurgo, Amy
Pearlman, Janet S. Reiter,
Audrey Rosenthal, Shelley
Sickerman, Fred Salomon,
Harvey White, Alan Zangen
and Donna Zeide.
Cost of the forum is $10 per
person including hors
d'oeuvres and a cash bar. For
more information, contact
Debbie Hammer, Young Adult
Division Director, at the
Federation office, 832-2120.
Bar Mitzvah Youth Receives
Letter From Soviet Twin
The purpose of encouraging
Bar and Bat Mitzvah
youngsters to "twin" their
simcha with a Soviet 13 year
old is to highlight the plight of
Soviet Jewry. While a
religious ceremony is held here
to mark their passage into
adulthood, Soviet boys and
girls are denied this privilege
and responsibility.
Part of this "twinning" pro-
cess, sponsored by the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County, is having this com-
munity's children write to
their Soviet twin. Often this is
a one way exchange. A letter is
written to their Soviet
counterpart, no letter is
received in response,
discouragement sets in, and
the correspondence may come
to an end.
Thirteen year old Adam
Fischer, who will become a
Bar Mitzvah at Temple Judea
on March 20, was skeptical
about the letter writing re-
quirement part of his "twinn-

Egypt and Jordan want all
permanent members of the
United Nations Security Coun-
cil to take part in the con-
ference, but Israel rejects a
role for the Soviet Union
unless it renews ties with
Israel and allows greater
Soviet Jewish emigration.
Peres, after the Cabinet ses-
sion, vowed to continue his
peace efforts. "There is an
argument in the Cabinet and
every argument has a certain
amount of tension .. We're
continuing with the peace pro-
cess," Peres said.
Adam Fischer
ing" and told Rabbi Joel
Levine about his reservations.
"Of course, I ended up getting
a letter,' Adam said. He con-
siders himself most fortunate
to have received a reply from
his Soviet twin, Michael
Mermershtain of Ushgorod (or
Mike, as he signed the letter).
"I guess I was just lucky."
Perseverance, not luck, may
have been the key to Adam's
success. He wrote three letters
to Michael beginning this past
October. "I was very excited
(when I heard from him in
January). He said he received
two of my letters. He is 13
years old also, is in the sixth
grade, and says his favorite
subject is geography. He en-
joys collecting stamps, coins,
and little cars."
Adam and Michael
discovered that they shared a
love for sports, especially table
tennis. "I love playing ping-
pong. I really think I will get to
play with him sometime,"
Adam said. The letter is the
beginning of a bond that is for-
ming between the two Bar
Mitzvah boys, although
separated by thousands of
"Now I know he really ex-
ists. I feel like I can really talk
to him," Adam said.
Adam has already sent a rep-
ly to Michael and included his
Bar Mitzvah invitation.
Michael and his family are
refuseniks. His grandmother is
in Israel and Michael, his
parents, and an aunt and uncle
are now awaiting their exit
Through Adam's efforts, the
Soviets are now aware that the
Mermershtain family has a
contact in the West. By
highlighting their plight,
Adam may hasten their
emigration. He looks forward
to meeting his Soviet twin
soon in Israel and challenging
him to a fast-paced game of
table tennis.

'Home Start' Making Many New Friends
It has been three months
since the Home Start pre-
school holiday program has
been offered locally under the
auspices of the Department of
Education of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County at a reduced price of
$20. Many families have taken
advantage of the discount of-
fer to introduce their children
to the Behrman House Jewish
education program, designed
for the whole family to share.
Those who have received the
package of colorful story
books, a play and learn
magazine, and a cassette tape
of songs and stories, all
centered around a Jewish holi-
day, are unanimous in their
praise for the program.
Representative of the young
families whose positive com-
ments are being received by
the Jewish Federation are
Julie Cummings and Mickie
Feller. The Cummings
children, Tony, 7, and
Caroline. 6, had been introduc-
ed to Home Start at their tem-
ple. "They used it in class last
year. It's great super," Mrs.
Cummings said.
She continued by saying that
the program makes learning
fun. "It is a real enrichment
[>rogram. The stories come to
ife at their level. My kids love
the cartoon characters, the
games we play ... it makes
them more excited about their
Mrs. Cumming's children
receive Home Start seven
times a year. "I would en-
courage every Jewish parent
to buy it for their children. I
order additional material from
the Berhman House catalogue.
I definitely would encourage
anyone to buy it," she
Mickie Feller believes that
Home Start is very beneficial
to her three-and-a-half year-
old daughter, Jody. "Although
she is exceptionally bright, she
doesn't understand everything
that is sent. But it starts
discussion and that's why I
wanted it. As she gets older,
we'll be able to do more of the
activities," stated Mrs. Feller.
The Chairman of Jewish
Education for the Federation,
Nathan Kosowski, noted that
this was an ideal time to order
Home Start either for one's
own family or as a gift. "With
Purim coming up on Mar. 15, it
is a reminder that when one
subscribes to this outstanding
Jewish education program,
they will receive materials
geared to the holidays
throughout the year. Parents
should not hesitate and order
the materials now so that they
will begin to receive Home
Start by Passover," he said.
A child can be enrolled in
Home Start at any time and
receive the complete cycle of
seven holiday mailings. To
order the program for use
locally and/or for further infor-
mation, contact Dr. Elliot
Schwartz, Education Depart-
ment Associate, at the Federa-
tion office, 832-2120.
Attending the recent national Anti-
Defamation League dinner at The Breakers
are Ethel and Irving Rubinstein, Sr., guest
of honor; Madame Bea Alexander,
Honorary Chairman, Palm Beach County
ADL Regional Board; and Michael C. Bur-
rows, Chairman, Palm Beach County ADL

Justice Blackmun Urges
Vigilance To Defend
Religious Freedoms
Supreme Court Associate
Justice Harry A. Blackmun
told Jewish community rela-
tions leaders recently that in
this year of the 200th anniver-
sary celebration of the United
States Constitution the wall of
separation between religion
and the state "is crumbling a
Decrying what he termed
the "increasing tendency to
bring religion into govern-
ment," Blackmun, in his ad-
dress to the Plenary Session of
the National Jewish Communi-
ty Relations Advisory Council
meeting in Fort Lauderdale,
said that the Constitution and
the Bill of Rights "are our
roots for government and
political freedom ... and must
be protected every day and
Religious freedoms and the
separation of church and state
are guaranteed by the "45 sim-
ple words of the First Amend-
ment ... which is fundamental
to our life as a nation,"
Blackmun said.
But he warned that these
freedoms, too, require cons-
tant attention. "We all ap-
preciate the problems which
seem to be inevitable when liv-
ing in a culture dominated by
those of another religious per-
suasion," the Justice told the
500 delegates to the NJCRAC
annual meeting.
"There is and must be a wall
of separation between religion
and the state," Blackmun said.
"But there are signs in the
cases, particularly on the
Supreme Court level, that this
wall is crumbling a little."
He cited the case of Lynch v.
Donnelly, in which the

Four Honored At
Brotherhood Luncheon
The Brotherhood Committee
of the Palm Beaches and En-
virons ended its 1987 program
during Brotherhood Week
recently. At a luncheon for
more than 350 participants,
four community leaders were
awarded Woman or Man of the
Year Brotherhood plaques.
They were Reverend Pamela
Cahoon, Dr. Helen Hoffman,
Thomas Kelly and Reverend
Frank Satchel.
Also recognized were
youngsters from our Palm
Beach Schools. They were
granted United States Savings
Bonds for their Brotherhood
poster creations. The awards
were presented by Schools
Supt. Thomas Mills and Palm
Beach artist, Edna Hibel, who
judged the contest.
After pledging support of
Governor Bob Martinez' Pro-
clamation of Brotherhood for
the State of Florida, which
was issued for the fourth
straight year, the assemblage
was reminded of the ugly
racial incidents of recent
weeks in Howard Beach, New
York and Forsyth County,
Georgia. They were urged by
Executive Chairman Murry
Weinman, to intensify their ef-
forts to, "Reach out and touch
somebody's hand. Make this a
better world if you can."
Master of Ceremonies, Lu-
ciano Martinez, acknowledged
the fine committee work of the
following leaders who helped
to insure the success of the
function. They were Sam and
Libby Benoff, Perry Fried-
man, Pearl and Morton Fuchs,
Sonia and Lester Gold, Sylvia
and Arthur Radwin and Pearl
and Murry Weinman.
Brotherhood Award honorees are (left to
right) Thomas Kelly, former editor of the
Palm Beach Post; the Reverend Pamela A.
Cahoon, Director of Christians Reaching
Oat to Society for the United Methodist
Church; Dr. Helen G. Hoffman, Chairman
of the Community Relations Council of the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County
and the Reverend Frank R. Satchel, pastor
of Payne Chapel of the African Methodist
Episcopal Church. Marry Weinman is Ex-

Justice Blackmun
Continued from Page 6
Supreme Court, by a 5-to-4 rul-
ing, upheld the constitutionali-
ty of the erection of a creche
on public property. In his dis-
sent in that case, Blackmun
had argued that non-
Christians would be alienated
by the inappropriate display of
a sacred symbol. But the ma-
jority found no conflict in this
situation with the establish-
ment clause of the First
Amendment which prohibits
Congress from making any law
"respecting an establishment
of religion.
The Justice asserted that the
First Amendment states
"Congress shall make no law"
establishing a religion or pro-
hibiting the free exercise of
religion. "It doesn't say Con-
gress may make a little law,"
Blackmun added.
He said he did agree that
sometimes there is conflict
between that principle and the
rights of individuals to have
their religious needs
He cited the case of
Goldman v. Weinberger, in
which the Court upheld the
U.S. Air Force argument that
an Orthodox Jewish
psychologist could be ordered
not to wear his yarmulke while
on active duty. In his dissent,
Blackmun wrote that the
Government's failure to ac-
commodate minority religious
needs meant "special treat-
ment for mainstream religions
precisely because they are
Blackmun added that the
courts will continually be call-
ed upon to decide cases involv-
ing church and state, and to
determine the equilibrium bet-
ween the establishment and
free exercise clauses of the
First Amendment. But, he
said, the "45 simple words" of
the First Amendment" are a
source of strength we would
rather not be without."
Standing are Mr. and Mrs. Sunnier Greengross and Mrs. David Karp. Seated
are Mr. and Mrs. Irving Lief and Mr. and Mrs. Zalmon Wallack.

Washington with President
?agan and other top ad-
linistration officials, and
spoke in glowing terms of the
state of U.S.-Israel relations,
[t is "great, close and very
riendly," Shamir declared.
He disclosed that he told
at their White House
neeting that, contrary to some
eports, the U.S. has not lost
prestige in the Middle East
nd is still the most important
or in that region.
"THE ARABS know that
without the U.S. nothing could
be achieved in the Middle
East," the Premier declared.
He said he assured the Presi-
dent that the U.S. enjoys the
| confidence of Israel and most
I of the Arab nations. "I think
that the Administration ac-
cepted my approach and my
assessment" of the Middle
East situation, Shamir told his
audiences in New York.
He acknowledged that the
Administration takes a dif-
ferent view on an international
conference, but said he found
many reservations in official
Washington toward such a
forum in which the Soviet
Union would most likely par-
ticipate. He stressed that in his
opinion there is only one way
to achieve peace for the Middle
East direct negotiations.
"The U.S. will go for an inter-
national peace conference as a
way of bringing about direct
talks between the parties,"
Shamir said.
The issue has divided the
Israeli government. Peres ad-
vocates Israel's participation
in such a conclave. In a brief-
ing for Israeli journalists Tues-
day, Shamir indirectly accused
the Foreign Minister of
violating government
"There have been and there
are different opinions between
the two parties (Labor and
Likud) which make up the
government," Shamir said.
"In order to overcome that
problem, we have basic
guidelines of the unity govern-
ment. If there are crises in the
government, it is because so-
meone is not adhering to the
HE SAID he knew of Peres'
visit to Cairo, to meet with
Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak. They discussed an
international peace con-
ference, which they agreed to
at their last meeting in Alex-
andria in September.
But nobody can impose a
position that is not accepted by
the cabinet and the Knesset,
Shamir declared. He indicated
that if a crisis arises and is not
solved, there is a possibility of
new elections in Israel.
Shamir also spoke to Soviet
Jewry activists and other com-
munity leaders. He is reported
to have said that Soviet Jews
who leave the USSR with visas
for Israel but go instead to the
U.S. "deceive1' not only the
Soviet government but the
Israeli government. He said
the Soviets have indicated
they are thus reluctant to in-
crease Jewish emigration. He
said ha .had pressed the Ad-
ministration in Washington to
stop granting the special
refugee status to Soviet
Jewish immigrants which
enables them to come to the
U.S. instead of Israel.
THE MEETING was closed
to the press. But several
Jewish leaders who attended
said afterwards that they
disagreed with Shamir's ap-
proach to the issue.
At a meeting with 70 Jewish
educators here, Shamir
observed that only 50 percent
of American Jewish school-age
children receive any kind of a
Jewish education. "Jewish
education makes a difference
in the future of the Jewish peo-
ple," he said. "The only way to
save our people is by providing
them with a Jewish
Shamir warned that the lack
of Jewish education "is a
cultural disaster. We are going
to lose more Jews because of it
than we lost in the Holocaust."
He cited intermarriage,
assimilation and the influence
of other religions and cults on
many Jews as possible
Shamir urged American
Jews to come to Israel on
aliya. He called specifically on
Reform and Conservative
Jews who complain of
discrimination in Israel to live
in Israel. There they can in-
fluence the decisions of the
Knesset and government and
participate in Israel's political
life, he noted.

many of whom keep coming
back year after year. In fact,
they have such a good time and
are so involved in what they
are doing, that many of them
stay after their shirt is up,"
stated Mr. Jacobson.
To facilitate recruitment of
youth volunteers and to in-
volve the young adults of the
community in raising funds for
Super Sunday, a dance will be
held on Wednesday evening,
Mar. 18, at the Jewish Com-
munity Day School (during
Spring Break). Co-chairing
this event are teens Eric
Kurit, Eddie Mullens, and
Rachel Pevsner.
"We're really excited about
this opportunity to become
Super Sunday Heroes also,"
stated Eric. "In addition to
helping out on Super Sunday,
raising funds for the
Federation-UJA Campaign
makes us feel good about our
responsibility as Jews to help
other Jews in need."
Eddie noted that the $5 ad-
mission charge for the evening
would go to the Super Sunday
effort. "We are looking for-
ward also to signing up alot of
the teens who attend the dance
to help out on Super Sunday."
Rachel announced that the
theme for the dance was "An
Evening in the Park." "We'll
have an organ grinder with a
monkey, a not dog machine, a
pop corn machine and many
more reminders of a fun time
in a big city park. We'll dance
to the music of a local DJ along
with rock videos. We en-
courage all 8-12 graders to join
us for a great time dancing and
socializing as well as
demonstrating their concern
for the Jewish community."
Tammy Hamberg is a stu-
dent at Palm Beach Junior Col-
lege majoring in psychology.
She is presently interning at
Crossroads, an HRS shelter at
AG Holly Hospital. Having
moved here from Tampa
recently, this is her first in-

Recognizing Signs Of Teenage Suicide
Counseling: Program
at Jewish Family
and Children's Service
No topic frightens or con-
erns parents more than the
iibject of teenage suicide.
suicide is the second leading
:ause of death among
teenagers. What makes
snage suicide so difficult to
leal with lies in the nature of
ladolescence itself. During
"normal" adolescence,
Ichildren may appear moody or
show changes in their per-
sonality, which makes it dif-
ficult for parents to recognize
depression or suicidal thoughts
in their child.
Youth express depression in
different ways than adults.
Whereas adults may "feel"
depressed, a teenager is more
likely to "act" depressed. Ex-
amples of such behavior are:
temper tantrums, academic
problems, truancy, school
phobias, boredom, fatigue,
hyperactivity, eating pro-
blems, sleeping problems,
severe withdrawal, running
away from home, accident pro-
Foreign Minister Says Greece
Mulling Diplomatic Ties With Israel
ATHENS (JTA) Foreign
Minister Karlos Papoulias said
Monday, (Feb. 23) that Greece is
seriously considering establishing
full diplomatic relations with
Israel, according to media reports
from Brussels, where he was at-
tending a meeting of the Euro-
pean Economic Community
(EEC) Foreign Ministers. Israel is
presently represented here only
on the consular level.
The report quoted Papoulias as
saying that such a move was
under study and that action might
be taken during the latter half of
1988, when Greece assumes the
rotating chairmanship of the EEC
Council of Ministers.
Papoulias also reportedly
described as a bold political step
the EEC's decision to support an
international conference for peace
in the Middle East under United
Nations auspices.
He said it was a significant

These behaviors alone do not
indicate suicidal intention. You
need to listen to your child is
he talking about death or
showing an interest in wills or
funerals; is your child put-
ting his life in order, for exam-
ple is he giving away his
possessions; is he setting
unrealistic expectations or
goals, or is he discontinuing ac-
tivities that were once impor-
tant, for no reason.
As a parent, teacher or
friend, if you recognize these
behaviors in someone you
know, you need to get profes-
sional help for him. In order to
further educate students and
parents about teenage suicide,

Israeli Ship
Part Of
Atlantic Rescue
Israeli cargo ship, braving moun-
tainous seas and hurricane-force
winds, attempted to rescue sur-
viving crew members of the
Philippine trawler Balsa, which
foundered last week in the North
Atlantic, about 900 miles nor-
theast of Boston.
A spokesman for the Zim-
American Israeli Shipping Co.
here told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency that the Zim Miami, com-
manded by Captain Simantov
Yemini, was one of the first ships
at the scene after responding to
an SOS from the Balsa.
She arrived at 11 a.m. Wednes-
day, (Feb. 25) at the position
where the Balsa sank after capsiz-
ing. Eight crewmen were known
dead, and nine missing. One was
rescued by the U.S. Navy sub-
marine Scamp, which also
responded to the SOS.
The Zim Miami was attempting
to pick up one seamen who was
sighted in a lifeboat and searched
for the missing crewmen. Accor-
ding to reports received at the.
Zim Lines office here, the rescue
effort was hampered by 50-foot
waves and an 85-mph wind.

Senior Service Center
"My husband is in a nursing

These are some of the re-
quests the new Jewish Com-
munity Center Comprehensive
Senior Service Center receiv-
ed when a transportation
grant was awarded to them in
1977 and still is 10 years later.
Adequate means of transpor-
tation is more essential for
older adults than any other
segment of the population and
the small new Jewish Com-
munity Center of Palm Beach
County recognized this and
began to meet the needs of our
then small elderly population.
Its goal was to develop a ser-
vice that would be efficient,
dependable and caring, and to
treat persons with dignity and
great consideration of their in-
dividual needs in spite of very
limited funds, vehicles and
We had just begun! Along
with our new transportation
system we were also develop-
ing a variety of recreation and
educational programs. In-
terested persons came to us
and helped us to begin and
develop all kinds of activities.
Esther and Joe Molat, Sam
and Marion Rubin, in par-
ticular, and later Sabina Gott-
shalk were seniors who were
so interested, innovative and
concerned to give of
themselves to help others
grow and enjoy their later
years. Trips, the Chai Club,
flea markets and a variety of
classes were planned as staffs
senior volunteers worked
together to develop a "home
away from home" for our fast
growing senior population.
People as far as Delray in the
South and Jupiter in the North
reached out to us for stimula-
tion, motivation and help for
all kinds of problems. Com-
munity agencies such as Social
Security, Palm Beach County
Health Dept., RSVP, HRS and
many others sought out the
JCC to reach our senior
population. We soon became
known as advocates of the
elderly in Palm Beach County.
Our small, inadequate facili-
ty was our biggest problem
and unfortunately, still is, and
we often had to turn away peo-
ple due to lack of space. Our
weekly series "Consult your
Doctor" with lectures and
discussions with practicing
professionals in our communi-
ty, and special financial lec-
tures attracted so many
seniors that we had to offer
double sessions.
We were the first to develop
the kinds of services this com-
munity needed and were en-
titled to. We collaborated with
and the JCC Senior Center
began to dream.
The following years were
years of tremendous growth,
growth in the numbers of older
adults moving to Palm Beach
County, growth in the need of
more services and growth of
our Jewish community in Palm
Beach County. With the sup-
port of the Jewish Federation,
Gulfstream Area Agency on
Aging, HRS and the Jewish
Community Center, the CSSC
expanded to its capacity and
yet constantly sought monies
to develop still another
The first Kosher meal pro-
gram in Palm Beach County
was developed in 1983 with a
larger grant awarded to the
JCC, through Title III of the
Older Americans Act, ad-
ministered by Gulfstream
Area Council of Aging. Two
locations became available for
persons to enjoy a Kosher
meal program, one in Delray
Beach at Congregation Anshei
Emuna and one at our JCC in
West Palm Beach.
This program has become a
way of life for hundreds of
older adults as they enjoy daily
Kosher meals along with
enriching educational and
recreational programs each
Over the ten years, the
CSSC has provided 228,860
transportation trips to persons
who had to go to doctors, to
treatment centers, to hospitals
and nursing homes to visit
spouses; provided 100,740
hours of education and 52,741
hours of recreation to persons
who attend the many classes
such as Writers Workshop,
Yoga, Timely Topics Discus-
sion Group, Speakers Club,
Exercises in the Chair, You
and Your Health, Sex after
Sixty, Second Tuesday Club,
Holiday Celebrations, Cooking
for One and many many more;
the Kosher Meal program is
only four years old and in that
time has served 117,266 meals
in the Center's dining room,
sent 91,363 meals home to
shut-ins and offered 8,956
hours of nutrition education.
Our volunteers have con-
tributed tremendously to the
development of this program
along with a most dedicated
staff. The support of the JCC

President and a most

ed us to successfully reach our

JWV Matzah Of Hope Program
Edwin Goldwasser, National
Commander of the Jewish War
Veterans of the United States
of America, has announced a
special program which will
send a Passover message to
the Soviet Union. The JWV is
organizing an effort in which it
is anticipated that more than a
quarter of a million boxes of
Matzah will be sent to the
Soviet Embassy before the
first Passover seder.
National Commander
Goldwasser is appealing to all
concerned Americans, in and
out of the Jewish community,
to participate in this program.
"The message of Passover is
freedom and we want the Jews
of the Soviet Union to some-
day rejoice in the same
freedom in which Moses and
the Jews of Egypt exulted,"
said Goldwasser. The JWV
hopes that by flooding the
Soviet Embassy with matzah,
a message will be sent that
Americans have not forgotten

ing carried out in the Soviet

Horrors Of Treblinka
Israel Seeks Boost In Aussie Tourism
former inmate of Treblinka
recited ghastly details of mass
murder at the death camp
under sharp cross examination
late last month in the trial here
of accused war criminal John
Pinhas Epstein, who elec-
trified the court earlier when
he pointed to Demjanjuk as the
brutal camp guard known as
"Ivan the Terrible," continued
his key prosecution testimony
under relentless questioning
by Demjanjuk's American at-
torney, Mark O'Connor.
The defense contends that
the Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk
is a victim of mistaken identi-
ty. Its strategy is to
demonstrate the fallibility of
witnesses' memories more
than 40 years after the events.

details of the camp's structure,
the people in charge of the ex-
termination process and such
minutiae as where the laundry
was hung.
He described the mass
graves into which bodies were
dumped. Chlorine powder was
poured on the corpses to
hasten their disintegration.
"The powder sank down, caus-
ing blood to burst from the
ground. Then they added more
bodies and more powder," the
witness said.
Epstein, who was brought to
Treblinka at the age of 17,
spoke of "the man in the white
coat," known to inmates only
as Erwin, who stood at the
edge of the mass grave and
ordered the killing of those vic-
tims not yet dead.
"When a wounded person
was brought to the edge of the
grave, Erwin used to order
him to crouch on his hands and
knees, naked at the edge of the
pit. Then he would signal a
Ukrainian guard to come over
and shoot the victim through
his head," Epstein said.
THE TRIAL, before a
three-iudge panel of the
Jerusalem District Court has
been marked increasingly by
emotional outbursts from spec-
tators, many of them
Holocaust survivors. At a
recess Tuesday, several sur-
vivors hurled oaths at the
defendant's son, John Demjan-
juk Jr., and against Ukrainians

U.S. Citizenship
American citizenship of Rabbi
Meir Kahane, a Brooklyn-born

Glasser ruled last week in a suit
brought by Kahane that the State
Department did not have the right
to rescind Kahane's U.S. Citizen-

Americans Urged To Get Involved
In Promoting Mideast Dialogue
Israeli and Palestinian peace
activists are looking to the
Jewish and Palestinian com-
munities in North America to
influence their leadership to
support a negotiated peace in
the Middle East.
To this end, the Israelis,
Palestinians and American
Jews and Palestinians who at-
tended a peace dialogue last
Sunday sponsored by
American Friends of Peace
Now (AFPN) suggested ac-
tivities to promote peace,
dialogue and greater
understanding between Jews
and Arabs both in the Middle
East and in North America.
Galia Golan, a leading figure
in Peace Now, the non-
partisan Israeli peace move-
ment, and one of Israel's
foremost experts on the Soviet
Union, said the American
Jewish and Arab communities
can be instrumental in
moderating both Mideast

Arabic daily Al-Fajr and one of
two people approved by both
Israel and the Palestine
Liberation Organization to
represent Palestinians in
negotiations, said American
Jewish and American Arab
organizations could cooperate
to defend their rights and pre-
vent stereotyping of each
The second half of the con-
ference focused on activities
for Americans to promote
peace in the Middle East. The
suggestions included:
Dialogue groups small,
intimate encounters with equal
numbers of Arabs and Jews
meeting regularly to discuss
Middle Eastern conflicts. Pro-
fessor Richard Schwartz of
Syracuse University Law
School, who started a dialogue
group in Syracuse, NY, said
"we want to meet in a living
room, we want to meet as
human beings ... to com-
municate across the giant
chasm between Palestinians
and Jews."
Research Steven Cohen,
an author and professor of
sociology at Queens College
(NY), suggested a project to
research Jewish and Arab im-
ages of each other in the Mid-
dle East and in North
America. Cohen currently
does an annual survey for the
American Jewish Committee
on American Jewish attitudes
on the Arab-Israeli conflict.
Coalition for dialogue
Schwartz also suggested that
the American Coalition for
Middle East Dialogue, a con-
federation of six dialogue
groups, extend its activities.
He called on the group to reach
out to the Congress and

leadership with ideas for

for a negotiated peace.
Arab-Jewish reconciliation
week This program would
be aimed at breaking down the
sense of alienation and
separateness between Palesti-
nian and Jewish activists,
especially on the college cam-
pus. During the week, both
communities would sponsor
joint activities, films, lectures,
and encounter groups.
Media monitoring Citing
a proliferation of anti-Arab
and anti-Jewish stereotypes in
the American media, Mark
Rosenblum, AFPN executive
director, suggested monitor-
ing the American media and
