Simchat Torah
Simchat Torah, the most joyous day in the Hebrew
calendar, marks the end of the Torah cycle. The last
portion of the Five Books of Moses is chanted, immedi-
ately followed by the reading of the first chapter of
Genesis. Starting at sundown, Thursday, October 15,
Jews the world over will gather in synagogues where
all the Torahs will be taken from the ark and carried
around the sanctuary in joyous procession. On Simchat
Torah, also known as the day of "Rejoicing in the Law,"
Jews are called upon to dedicate themselves anew to
the principles of Torah. For more on Simchat Torah,

Major Shift Seen In Turkey's
Policy Toward Israel
By YITZHAK RABI
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Turkey is prepared to
strengthen its economic,
cultural and diplomatic ties
with Israel. But, diplomatic
sources told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, Turkey
in return wants Israel to use
its alleged influence on the
"Jewish lobby" in America to
advance Turkish interests in
Washington.
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres met here Wednesday
(Sept. 30) with Turkish
Foreign Minister Vahit
Halefoglu. It was the first
meeting in the last 20 years
between the Foreign Ministers
of the two countries.
Turkey, a Moslem country,
does not have full diplomatic
ties with Israel. The two coun-
tries only have consular level
representation between them.
Because of its solidarity with
the Moslem Arab world,
Turkey has been careful for
years not to intensify its ties
with the Jewish State, at least
not openly.
The willingness of the
Turkish Foreign Minister to
meet with Peres represents a
major shift in Ankara's policy
toward Israel and the Arab-
Israeli conflict.
In a special interview with
the Jewish Telegraphic agency
following the meeting between
the two foreign Ministers, the
spokesman for the Turkish
Foreign Ministry, Ambassador
Inal Batu, said:
"The meeting between
Peres and Halefoglu con-
stitutes by itself an improve-
ment in relations between the
two countries. In addition, we
demonstrated to the whole
Moslem world that Israel is no
longer taboo." The Turkish of-
ficial noted that Turkey is the
only Moslem country in the
world apart from Egypt,
which has diplomatic relations
with Jerusalem.
Israeli and Turkish sources
confirmed that the Turkish
Foreign Minister accepted an
invitation by Peres to visit
Israel. If such a visit indeed
takes place it would mark a
major progress in relations
between the two countries.
Turkey seeks the influence
of what it conceives to be the
"powerful Jewish lobby" in
Washington. The Turks
believe that the Greek and
Armenian lobbies in
Washington are harming
Turkish interests and they are
convinced that the Jewish lob-
by is capable of turning things
around to satisfy the Turkish
request for American military

From The Demographic Study
Palm Beaches Differ From Other Communities
(First of a Two-Part Series
Comparing the Palm Beaches
with Other
Jewish Communities)
The Jewish community of the Palm Beaches, the
eleventh largest in the country, is unique in terms of
age, the length of years in the community of full-time
residents, marital status, and other factors, according
to preliminary information obtained from the
Demographic Study now being completed by the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County.
"We are discovering that the Palm Beaches is dif*
ferent from many other Jewish communities in that
our population is more likely to be married, less likely
to be born here, and is older," stated Stanley Bren-
ner, Chairman of the Demographic Study Committee.
"The implications of these findings will be studied by
Federation, its agencies, synagogues, and other
organizations in the ensuing months to better provide
for the planned future growth of our Jewish
community."

building's renovation or
restoration.
The building has been unoc-
cupied since 1981, when it was
narrowly saved from
bulldozers at its original loca-
tion in West Denver. Since
then, the small brick structure
has been moved to two city
parks, was partially burned by
arsonists, defaced with anti-
Semitic symbols and has been
the subject of numerous and
varied disputes over how it
should be utilized and where it
should be located.
Initial support from the city
waned as restoration funds
proved difficult to obtain; the
organized Jewish community
has not made a financial com-
mitment to the project.
Women's Division
Education At The Forefront
For This Vice President
Her interest in education has taken Deborah Schwarz-
bere from volunteering her services for the youth of this
community to educating women about the Jewish com-
munity in the Palm Beaches, in Israel, and worldwide.
This year under Mrs. Schwarzberg's leadership women
will have to a chance to broaden their horizons through a
new forum of education programs which will be previewed
at the Presidents' Coffee.
A member of the Women's Division Executive Commit-
tee last year, Mrs. Schwarzberg co-chaired the minimum
$365 category brunch given on behalf of the Women's Divi-
sion Federation-UJA Campaign. She has served on the
Pacesetters' Luncheon Committee as well. Mrs. Schwarz-
berg's interest in education led her to serve on the Youth
Services Committee of the Jewish Community Center and
the Education Committee of the Jewish Community Day
School. A Temple Beth El member, she serves on its Music
Series Committee.
India Nixes Visit
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
Indian government has refus-
ed to grant a visa to Hebrew
University Prof. Shlomo
Avineri who has been invited
by one of India's most
prestigious "think tanks" to
participate in a conference on
Soviet bloc developments in
December.
Avineri, an expert on Marx
and Communist theory and
one of Israel's leading
Sovietologists, said he receiv-
ed his invitation a year ago
from the Indian School of
Political Economy. He said he
has since received many in-
quiries from the school about
the paper he was to present at
the conference.
He said he would inform
other prospective participants
of the Indian government's
refusal and expected that
some would decide to boycott
the meeting. Avineri served
for a time as Director General
of the Foreign Ministry under
Shimon Peres.

and economic aid. Presently
the Turkish government
receives about $600 million an-
nually in American foreign
assistance.
Peres, in his meeting with
Halefoglu Wednesday,
discussed the prospects for an
international peace conference
on the Mideast. "We told
Peres that we support an in-
ternational peace conference
but we stressed that such a
conference must be attended
by the PLO, which is the
legitimate representative of
the Palestinian people," the
spokesman of the Turkish
Foreign Ministry told the JTA.
The JTA has learned from
reliable sources that the two
Foreign Ministers also discuss-
ed cooperation in the fight
against international ter-
rorism. Turkey and Israel have
been cooperating secretly on
this problem for some years
now. Turkey is a target of
Armenian and Kurdish ter-
rorists who launch hit-and-run
attacks on Turkish citizens
along the Turkish-Syrian
border.

Israel-Mideast Task Force
Encouraging Tourism To Israel
During Its 40th Annicersary
This year the Israel-Mideast
Task Force of the Community
Relations Council of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County is broadening
its scope to encourage tourism
to Israel during Israel's 40th
anniversary celebration this
year.
"We have established a new
sub-committee, chaired by
Malcolm Franks who is a
member of our task force,
which will work closely with
Israel's liaison for tourism in
South Florida. Israel will be
hosting various special ac-
tivities each month as it
observes its 40th anniversary
Dr. Mark Rattinger
of statehood. We will be en-
couraging people in the Palm
Beaches to consider visiting
Israel and to plan their trip to
coincide with one or more of
the monthly celebrations,"
stated Dr. Mark Rattinger,
Chairman of the task force.
Dr. Rattinger has been ap-
pointed to head the task force
for the fourth consecutive year
by Rabbi Joel Levine, Chair-
man of the Community Rela-
tions Council. "This is a very
exciting year for Israel. I am
very pleased that Mark will be
at the helm of the Israel-
Mideast Task Force during
this joyous time in Israel's
history. He is a dedicated and
extremely capable leader who
will bring 'Israel at 40' to our
community," stated Rabbi
Levine.
According to Dr. Rattinger,
one of the major goals of the
task force has been to bring
together members of the com-
munity to learn more about
current situations in the
Mideast and how to work ef-
fectively on behalf of Israel.
This year is no exception as
the Mideast Conference will
highlight, "Israel at 40 Mid-
dle Age Conflicts." The con-
ference will be held Nov. 8,
9:30 a.m., at Temple Israel.
"This provocative and timely
topic will be addressed by
leading national and interna-
tional analysts," Dr. Rattinger
said.
Prior to being named Chair-
man of the Israel-Mideast Task
Force in 1984, Dr. Rattinger
had served as Co-Chair with
ISRAELI! AT FORTY
omKontomoanHt
Milton Gold. Dr. Rattinger is a
graduate of the Federation's

Board. He has been elected to
the National Council of the
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee (AIPAC), having
helped found the local chapter
and having served as its head.

The PLO and Free Speech
Like the chorus in a Greek drama, they
have spoken: The New York Times, the
Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times
pronounced the State Department's decision
to close the PLO's Washington office
"mindless," "an empty gesture," "an
assault on free speech," and "a 'victory' we
can do without. Since shutting down the
PLO-funded Palestine Information Office is
none of those things, something must be
obscuring the view from Olympus.
The fog has two parts confusion, honest
or otherwise, about the PLO, and non-
historical First Amendment absolutism.
First, the Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion (the name itself belongs inside quotation
marks: Some including current and
former Foreign Service officers, think tank
denizens and Op-Ed page writers see the
PLO as an indispensable element in Middle
East peacemaking. To them Yasir Arafat,
George Habash, Naif Hawatmeh and com-
pany are virtually synonymous with the
Palestine Arabs and eventually must be
welcomed as equal partners in negotiations
between Israel and Jordan over the West
Bank (Judea and Samaria) and the Gaza
Strip.
Diplomatic or political actions against the
PLO, therefore not to mention Israeli
military strikes are seen by this camp as
an attack on the peace process itself. From
this viewpoint, the only good thing one can
say about closing the organization's
Washington propaganda shop is that it
might sidetrack legislation in both the
House and Senate which proposes to shut
down Arafat's observer mission at the UN
as well.
In truth, the argument that the PLO is an
unsavory but essential party to peace con-
tains the seeds of its own destruction. By
word and deed over several decades, the
organization's subgroups including the il-
lusive moderates have made clear that for
them bloodshed, especially that of Jews and
of Arabs who disagree with them, is both a
tactic and a strategy. A settlement with
gunmen who embody this volatile mix of
Arab-Islamic chauvinism and Marxist
totalitarianism would bring neither peace
nor liberation to "Palestine" nor to Palesti-
nians Jews or Arabs.
Second, First Amendment concerns also
rest on faulty assumptions. Even if the Ad-
ministration acts on its own to close both
PLO offices, even if Congress passes legisla-
tion requiring their closure, the right of
American citizens as opposed to foreign
nationals to continue agitating on behalf
of terrorists would remain untrammeled.
They would simply have to spend their own
money not the PLO's and set up then-
own offices to do so.
According to Rep. Jack Kemp (R., N.Y.),
one of the sponsors of the anti-PLO bill,
Sheryl Stethem Sierralta, sister of U.S.
Navy diver Robert Stehem murdered by
terrorists on TWA flight 847 in 1985 put
it this way: "I don't see any merits in the
argument against the (closure) because I do
not believe that a terrorist organization
^TTA
should be allowed to exploit American con-
stitutional privileges and continue to
operate on American soil."
Her remarks echoed those of Supreme
Court Justice Robert Jackson, a Franklin
Roosevelt appointee, to the effect that the
BUI of Rights is not a suicide pact. And
though Stethem was killed by Lebanese
Shi'ites, the PLO itself has long been at war
with the United States, going back to the
1973 murder of American diplomats in the
Sudan through the 1985 killing of Achille
Lauro passenger Leon Klinghoffer, with
dozens of other attacks in between.
While some Americans insist that the
question is one of free speech, Arafat
himself does not. A principal enemy of the
PLO, he said in 1985, is the United States.
First Amendment guarantees of free
speech and a free press ensure that
minorities will be heard, that society will re-
main open. The PLO is a murdeous enemy of
open societies and of any opinions other than
its own. It is also a foreign enemy, neither
entitled to nor deserving of Bill of Rights
protection.
Thomas Jefferson himself wrote in 1804
that he opposed Congressional controls on
the press but expected that the states would
have the right to apply them. It is a legal
commonplace that no one is free to shout
"fire" in a crowded theater. And because
the war against Jewish nationalism, against
Israel, is sitll beibg fought, the theater is still
crowded.
(Near East Report)
A Granddaughter's Appeal
By MARTIN GILBERT
Special to the
Jewish Floridian
On Oct. 17, Israel Shapiro
will celebrate his 13th birth-
day. Twice already, in
Jerusalem and in London, his
Bar Mitzvah ceremony has
been twinned with other boys:
one Israeli, the other English.
On neither occasion could the
young Israel join in the
celebrations: the son of Lev
Shapiro, one of Leningrad's
longest trapped refuseniks, he
has been a refusenik almost all
his life.
The Shapiro family has
never sat still under the
shadow of their fate. Six mon-
ths ago, Israel's eight year old
sister Naomi wrote a letter to
Mr. Gorbachev on her family's
behalf. She received no reply,
nor did her family receive their
long awaited exit visas. Naomi
Shapiro has therefore sent Mr.
Gorbachev a second letter,
which she posted to him on her
ninth birthday, pointing out
that her father never knew his
own grandparents "because
they were murdered by
fascists in the Ukraine only
because they were Jews. '
Now, she continues, "it is a
time of peace, and I am living
in the Soviet Union, but I can-
not understand whose fault it
is that I and my brother cannot
see our old and not so healthy
grandpa and grandma."
The grandparents whom
Israel and Naomi Shapiro have
never seen live in Israel.
Shmuel is 83 and his wife
Evgenia is 79. It is their bitter-
sweet fate to have been the
guests at both the twinned Bar
Mitzvah ceremonies, one held
in Israel on Aug. 13, the other
held on Aug. 22 at the Spanish
and Portuguese synagogue in
London, with a reception in
Israel a few weeks later which
Israel's grandparents
attended.
The Bar Mitzvah boy in Lon-
don was Michael Mocatta,
whose mother spoke to Lev
Shapiro on the telephone.
"Give my parents strength
and courage to believe," was
his message, "and to stay alive

sidering that the members-to-
be came from different coun-
tries and were of different
political persuasion, etc. It was
also difficult to have to meet in
different places since the
group did not have the benefit
of its own set place. But ac-
complishments were had due
to the good work of the Presi-
dent, Ed Lefkowitz; the Vice-
President, Esther Gastwirth,
and others.
An important question arose
as to which language was to be
spoken or used. How can we
deny the Yiddish, the language
used by our grandmothers and
mothers in speaking to us and
for the use of which language
they perished at the hands of
the Nazis. The Yiddish
language was the basis of the
progressive Jewish culture and
a rich literature. They main-
tained this all through the
worst conditions that we
ourselves lived through.
In order to consider those
people here who do not speak
or understand Yiddish, we
have decided to use two
languages, namely Yiddish
and English. Our obligation is
'not to forget the Holocaust "
So we lecture to the children in
the schools. This angered the
right-wing element which
caused some to threaten the
lecturers. Also we are
obligated "not to forgive the
Holocaust."
Still, we must live together
on the same ground which was
given to us as well as to the
Nazis in America, Canada,
Central and South America,
and Australia, so that these
Nazis will not be prosecuted
for murdering Jews, gypsies
and others.
We long know of American
kindness in that sense. The
latest revelations from Ottawa
outdo all others in this respect.
In August of 1987 there was
printed in the "Toronto Star,"
the details of how the United

Our Heroes Also?'

States "duped" Canada to ad-
mit Nazis for safe-keeping and
the United States made
Canada responsible for their
safety; also not to be ex-
tradited to Russia or Poland
because America used these
Nazis against those countries.
In 1946 England had done the
same thing sending 4,000
Nazis to Canada with the same
warning not to extradite them.
Premier Trudeau did not allow
the extradition of these Nazis
to Europe or elsewhere. Even
as late as three years ago,
America sent a group of Nazi
murderers for safe-keeping. Is
it now sweet and kind of
America to protect Nazis and
Nazism in America, Canada,
and South and Central
America? The Toronto Jewish
Press did not make too big an
issue over the Ottawa revela-
tion, nor did they even have
words of praise for the
"Toronto Star." Doesn't all
this help assure the right wing
that the Holocaust never hap-
pened; that the Jews are liars,
swindlers and no heroes of any
kind?
It is also a pity that our
former death camp inmates
believe that they are the only
heroes. So the question is:
Where are the heroes of the
forests, the ghettos, the
underground armies, etc? And
then there were those who
never made it home. We who
did come home found no family
and no home. Is not the Mayor
of Wiszkow a hero? He saved
two young Jewish sisters and
later furnished them with
Christian documents so they
could work in Germany and
get out of Poland. Is not Jad-
yiga a heroine? I described her
in my book-not an ordinary
person- but a true descendant
of royal blood. She fought the
anti-Semitic students in the
Warsaw University; further,
she helped a Jewish student to
study art; she later saved him
from Germans by giving her
name to him until he decided,
for her safety, to join the Par-
tisans. While serving with the
Partisans he was seriously
wounded while protecting a
fellow Partisan. For this act he
was given a Gold Star in
Moscow. In Moscow he had
been cured of his injuries. He
returned to Poland and not fin-
ding his parents or his wife, he
cried out: "God or devil, why
do you torture me or punish
me?"
Are these not our heroes
also?

Yan Sheinfeld, the Bar Mitz-
vah boy in Israel, has cerebral
palsy, as a result of which he is
unable to speak. He was able,
however, on this extraor-
dinary occasion both to sing
his portion and to say a few
words about Israel Shapiro, by
means of a computer equipped
with a voice synthesizer which
he operated using an elec-
tronic head switch: his palsy
made it impossible to use the
computer with his hands.
The computer equipment
which enabled Yan Sheinfeld
to speak to Israel Shapiro had
been specially adapted for him
by Dr. John Eulenberg, Direc-
tor of the Artificial Language
Laboratory at Michigan State
University, and used in Israel
for the very first time on this
occasion.
Yan Sheinfeld had himself
been born in Russia, but has
lived in Israel since he was
seven months old. Israel
Shapiro was three years old

has spent her whole life as part
of a refusenik family. "I appeal
to you to help us," she writes
in her second letter to Mr.
Gorbachev.
The Shapiro family are not,
alas, alone among old time
refuseniks in Leningrad who
have so far failed to benefit
from the Soviet winds of
change. For example, despite
an upsurge of rumours recent-
ly, neither Evgeni Lein nor
Alec Zelichenok, both of them
former Prisoners-of-Zion, have
been allowed to leave. Yet
Lein is 47 and Zelichenok 50.
Both have been waiting for
nearly a decade. For several
months now, Lein's daughter
Nehama awaits him in
Jerusalem.
Zelichenok too, a
distinguished Hebrew teacher,
who for many years has taught
Leningrad Jews about their
heritage, has recently been ap-
pointed a Research Fellow at
the Hebrew University School
of Education. "It is a matter of
particular interest to us,"
writes the Chairman of the
School, "that you, as a
distinguished electrical
engineer, have been able to ap-
ply your talents and abilities so
creatively to the field of educa-
tion, and in particular to the
field of Hebrew Education."
Zelichenok is also awaited in
Jerusalem.
The Shapiros, the Leins and
the Zelichenok have each
upheld the Jewish banner amid
difficulty and even danger;
now is the time for them to be
allowed to live in the land for
which they have struggled so
long.

She is active in communal ef-
forts in Providence, New York
City and Palm Beach.
"Sylvia is an asset to the
Jewish community," Stein
said. "She is an outstanding
civic, cultural and philan-
thropic leader who is
knowledgeable about all
aspects of UJA's
responsibilities."
Hassenfeld is U.S. Chairman
of the International Leader-
ship 14th Annual Reunion.

The UJA, in partnership
with Federations and other
community campaigns across
the country, raised $727
million last year. In Israel,
Campaign funds help absorb,

migrants, build villages and
farms in rural areas, support
innovative programs for
troubled and disadvantaged
youth and through Project
Renewal promote the
revitalization of distressed
neighborhoods. Campaign
funds also provide essential
services that help sustain the
fabric of Jewish life at home
" and in 34 countries around the
world.
Applications Being Accepted For UJA '88
Summer Youth Program In Israel
NEW YORK, N.Y. Ap-
plications are now being ac-
cepted for Lehava III, a sum-
mer (July 11-31, 1988) pro-
gram designed to enhance and
strengthen relations between
Israeli and Diaspora youth,
sponsored by the American
Jewish Forum in consultation
with the Israeli Forum and the
Jewish Agency under the
auspices of the United Jewish
Appeal. Lehava is an example
of the UJA's ongoing commit-
ment to building relationships
between American and Israeli
Jews.
Lehava is a three-week pro-
gram for 100 American and
100 Israeli young people. They
get to know each other while
traveling together throughout
Israel. Applicants for the pro-
gram go through a formal
screening process and must
have been to Israel before. Ap-
plicants must also have finish-
ed 10th, 11th or 12th grade by
next June.
This year's program is co-
chaired by Joel L. Leibowitz of
South Orange, N.J. and Billie
Feinman of Atlanta. "Jews liv-
ing in Israel and America are
moving further apart," says
Leibowitz, "and can benefit
from personal interaction.
This is where Lehava comes
in."
Feinman added: "This ex-
perience encompasses more
than touring. These
youngsters come home with
fresh, positive insights about
one another, an understanding
vital to the creation of a more
united Jewish people."
Lehava, which means
"flame" in Hebrew and is an
acronym of "L 'Shana Haba'ah
BYenuhalayim Ha'Bnuyak,"
will take place July 11-31,
1988. The cost is $1,600 per
person which includes air fare,
room/board, conference and
touring expenses. Based on
last year's success an early
sellout is expected and those
interested are urged to submit
applications early. Applica-
tions and further information
may be obtained from Young
Leadership Cabinet, UJA, 99
Park Avenue, New York, NY

Chiles Spearheads Move To Allow
Israel To Refinance Part Of Its U.S. Debt
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
A move to allow Israel to
refinance part of its debt to the
United States will be made in
Congress, according to Sen.
Lawton Chiles (D., Fla.).
Chiles told the Jewish
Telegraphic agency that he
met with Israel Finance
Minister Moshe Nissim
Wednesday (Sept. 30) and told
him he would make such a pro-
posal to the Senate Appropria-
tions subcommittee on
Foreign Operations. The sub-
committee s chairman, Sen.
Daniel Inouye (D., Hawaii),
favors the proposal, Chiles
said.
Israel owes the U.S. nearly
$10 bilion for economic and
defense purchases. About $1
billion of the defense loans
were taken out when interest
rates were at 12 to 14 percent.
Chiles said that while details
have not yet been worked out,
his proposal would allow Israel
to "prepay"the $1 billion by
refinancing the loan in the
private market at the current
interest rates of 10 to 11 per-
cent, thus saving millions of
dollars. This is similar to what
many people in the U.S. are
doing on their loans, he noted.
Congress would be asked to
guarantee most of the new
loan, Chiles said.
He said he believes the pro-
posal is "feasible" since
Israel's credit is good.
However, he said the proposal
still has to be worked out
carefully since he does not
want to set a "precedent"
where other countries, who
have not repaid their debts as
faithfully as Israel, would ask
for the same thing.
Chiles noted that Congress
was "delighted" with the im-
provements Israel has made in
its economy over the past
several years. "I think they
worked very hard and I think
they did a very good job," he
said.
Nissim, who was in
Washington for the annual
meeting of the International
Monetary Fund, met with
other members of Congress
before leaving for Israel.

Israel And Chinese Contacts To Continue
By YITZHAK RABI
NEW YORK (JTA) In
an unprecedented meeting
Wednesday (Sept. 30) evening
between the Foreign Ministers
of the People's Republic of
China and Israel, it was con-
cluded that contacts between
representatives of both coun-
tries will continue in the
future.
The meeting between
Shimon Peres, Israel's
Foreign Minister, and his
Chinese counterpart, Wu
Xuegian, was the first meeting
ever between the Foreign
Ministers of China and Israel.
China and Israel have no
diplomatic ties and China has
been a strong supporter of the
Arab side in the Arab-Israeli
conflict.
The meeting between the
two officials took place at the
Chinese Mission to the United
Nations. It lasted one hour and
45 minutes. Although
representatives of China and
Israel have met in the United
Nations in the last few mon-
ths, the Peres-Xuegian
meeting was the highest level
of contact between China and
Israel. Moreover, the Chinese
publicly announced the
meeting and allowed
photographers to take pictures
of the two officials at the end
of their meeting.
Peres, addressing Jewish
leaders at a meeting of the
Conference of Presidents of
Major Amerian Jewish
Organizations shortly after his
meeting with the Chinese of-
ficial, said that he discussed
with him the prospects for an
international peace conference
on the Mideast. The Chinese
Foreign Minister said that his
government will support any
framework for an interna-
tional peace conference agreed
to by the Arabs and Israel,
Peres said.
China is a permanent
member of the UN Security
Council and will, therefore,
participate in any future inter-
national conference. Accor-
ding to Israeli diplomats, the
Chinese Foreign Minister
reiterated his government's
position that any international
peace conference must include
the Palestine Liberation
organization.
Israel Out Of Meeting
TORONTO (JTA) Israel has been excluded from a
"Capitals of the World" conference to be held in Ottawa
next month at which terrorism against capital cities will be
on the agenda. Libya was among the nations invited.
A spokesman for Ottawa Mayor James Durell who is
organizing the conference said an invitation had been sent
to Mayor Shlomo Lahat of Tel Aviv but was returned with
a note stating that Israel's capital is Jerusalem. Canada
does not recognize the status of Jerusalem as Israel's
capital.

Jewish Family and Children's
Service has become quite in-
volved in providing local social
work students with a quality
field placement experience.
This agency has gone from
having one social work stu-
dent, in 1984, to as many as
four full time students in 1987.
This number will continue to
rise as the agency grows and
expands its services.
Students have been utilized
from both the FAU
undergraduate level (BSW)
and Barry University's
Graduate School of Social
Work (MSW). Staff members
from both the Counseling and
Geriatric Department have
joined in to supervise these
students.
The basis of a social work in-
ternship is similar to the ex-
perience a medical student has
in medical school. The goal is
to acquaint students with the
role and purpose of social ser-
vices and it s impact on the
community, and; the purpose
of JFCS and the role it plays in
the community, particularly
the Jewish community. In so
doing, students are provided
with a broad range of agency
activities, including marriage
and family counseling,
geriatric home assessment,
financial aid to clients, co-
leading support groups,
psychiatric consultations, and
staff meetings. In short,
students take part in almost
every conceivable work this
agency does. Each student

Award At AMIT

Claude Lanzmann, director
of the film "Shoah," thought
by many to be the most impor-
tant film ever made about the
Holocaust, will receive the

run Sunday Oct. 25 through
Wednesday Oct. 28. Lanz-

complete.
More than 500 delegates
from 32 states will convene in
Orlando, Florida, under the
theme Torah and Technology

dress the audience on Soviet
Jewry, anti-Semitism and

tion and Tovah Feldshuh.

receives close supervision dur-
ing their internship. In return,
the agency is provided help in
doing its work.
As the 1987-88 social work
students began their intern-
ship here, an agency orienta-
tion was undertaken. All
students met the staff and
went over the personnel
organization chart. Students
went over office procedures,
forms and were given the
agency five-year plan.
Students were acquainted with
local Jewish agencies as well
as support services in the
general community. In doing
this, hopefully, each student
became aware of Jewish Fami-
ly and Children's Service func-
tion and procedures and would
make the transition of "work-
ing" here much easier.
JFCS is looking forward to
another year of watching
students develop their social
work skills and become a part
of the profession. It will be a
learning experience for all.

Right-Wing Zealot:
Is Holocaust Material Anti-Christian?
By ROBERT E. SEGAL
A right-wing ideologue
employed by the U.S. Depart-
ment of Education attempted
to build a case against "Facing
History and Ourselves," the
highly regarded Holocaust
education organization and
program. She not only failed,
but actually enhanced the
stature of the program.
In her zeal, Christine Price,
assigned to help evaluate the
Holocaust teaching organiza-
tion and its materials, con-
demned the program as anti-
Christian and accused it of fail-
ing to present the Nazi and Ku
Klux Klan point of view.
Before deciding to give the
project a score of 40 out of 100,
she condemned it for being
anti-war and anti-hunting. To
top off her insipid judgments,
she branded as "leftist" the
New York Times foreign cor-
respondent, Flora Lewis, who
was quoted by "Facing
History and Ourselves."
Price and a second Educa-
tion Department staff person,
Shirley Curry, who gave Price
the assignment, both are said
to be enthusiastic true
believers in the extreme right
views set forth by Phyllis
Schlafly, leader of the Eagle
Forum. In her book, "Child
Abuse in the Classroom,"
Schlafly names "Facing
History" as one of the abuses.
"It is," she wrote, "an
organization deceitful in
design."
Apparently unmindful of her
own efforts to mold opinion,
she goes on to upbraid "Facing
History" for trying to "change
young people's attitudes on
political and social issues."
For one to grasp the depth of
Schlafly's alarming prescrip-
tions for the proper indoctrina-
tion of impressionable minds,
it is essential to note that she
urges children to "bless the
nuclear bomb as a marvelous
gift from a wise and wonderful
God to America." She also has
disparaged prelates of her own
church for warning against the
possibility of nuclear
destruction.
Father Robert Bullock,
board chairman of "Facing
History," called Price's ap-
praisal of the organization "ab-
surd." He knows its true value
as a teaching and teacher-
training unit. "It is imperative
for this valuable curriculum
concerning the Holocaust to be
used in our Catholics schools,"
he said.
It is noteworthy also that
during his American tour,
Pope John Paul II, in referring
pointedly to the Shoah
(Hebrew for annihilation) em-
phasized that he has assigned
to a special commission of
Catholic scholars the work of
preparing parochial school
texts dealing with the
Holocaust.
Some 85,000 educators and
16,000 other persons have pro-
fited by "Facing History and
Ourselves" training courses.
The carefully produced texts
are put to use by 450,000
school children annually, in
training seminars that bring
teachers from all over the
country to the Brookline,
Mass., headquarters of the
organization. Audiovisual
teaching aids and pertinent
material from Yale Univer-
sity's archives are
disseminated.
School administrators and
teachers in rural areas, aware
of the need to diminish
stereotyping and to build
mutual respect among minori-
ty ethnic groups, are soon to
benefit by tne supply of
teaching materials and the
assistance of members of Fac-
ing History and Ourselves,
now in its 12th year.
For a better understanding
of the firestorm about the
Holocaust teaching in the U.S.
Department of Education, the
following facts are helpful:
"Facing History and
Ourselves" has long been ac-
credited by the Education
Department's National Diffu-
sion Network, which is man-
dated to help obtain model
teaching programs for
dissemination.
The Department of Educa-
tion was in the process of try-
ing to create a Program
Significance Panel to deter-
mine whether a given program
would be generally acceptable
to those who provide education
services to parents.
The proposed panel was
soon viewed by a number of
alert educators and con-
gressmen as a potential vehicle
for censorship of superior pro-
grams. In fact, Max Mc-
Conkey, a spokesman for the
National Diffusion Network,
characterized the nascent
panel as a body able to
blackball educational pro-
grams for obvious ideological
purposes.
When it became clear that
Price was using her assign-
ment as a club with which to
pummel "Facing History and
Ourselves," Ronald Preston, a
deputy assistant secretary in
the department's office of
educational research and im-
provement, called the damage
a disaster and made it clear
that the department does not
want a "stilted panel of
rightwing ideologues."
Two measures of the success
of "Facing History and
Ourselves" come from a
glance at a list of some of the
orgaiuzaitons that have pro-
vided grants, and a gratifying
undertaking in cooperation
with the famed Boston Public

Battle Shaping Up To Block Administration
Proposed Arms Sale To Saudi Arabia
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
As the Reagan Administration
prepares to submit to Con-
gress a proposed arms sale
package for Saudi Arabia,
bipartisan majorities in both
the Senate and House are
making it clear that it will be
rejected. A letter signed by
225 members of the House was
delivered to the White House
and the State Department
Wednesday telling President
Reagan that the package will
be opposed.
A letter signed by 62
Senators was delivered to
Reagan last Friday. Both let-
ters cited a belief that the
Saudis have not supported
United States national in-
terests in the Middle East nor
have they helped combat inter-
national terrorism as evidenc-
ed by Saudi financial support
for terrorist groups such as the
Palestine Liberation
Organization.
The House letter was in-
itiated by Reps. Larry Smith
(D., Fla.), Mel Levine (D.,
Calif.), Dante Fascell (D.,
Fla.), William Broomfield (R.,
Mich.), Vin Weber (R., Minn.)
and Mickey Edwards (R.,
Okla.). Sens. Alan Cranston
(D., Calif.) and Bob Packwood
(R., Ore.) initiated the Senate
letter. Florida Senators Bob
Graham and Lawton Chiles
were signatories. In a separate
letter, Rep. Tom Lewis (R.,
Fla.) urged the President to
"reconsider the wisdom of the
sale."
In addition to those who
signed the letters, spokesmen
in both Houses said there are
enough other members oppos-
ed to the sale to override a
possible presidential veto.
The Administration, mean-
while, maintains it has not yet
made any decision on a
package which is expected to
include 1,600 Maverick anti-
tank missiles, F-15 jet fighters
and other equipment.
"W9 have been engaged in
full consultations with Con-
gress," Phyllis Oakley, a State
Department spokesperson,
said Tuesday. "We intend to
continue to consult fully with
Congress on this important
issue. We urge all Senators to
keep an open mind on this
issue during the consultation
process."
But at a press conference
Wednesday, Broomfield, the
ranking Republican on the
House Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee, said House members
had not been consulted. "I
think it's important if the Ad-
ministration wants to get an
arms package through it's
going to require partnership
on tne part ot Congress and
the Administration working
together." He said the Ad-
ministration can not just
decide on what will be sold and
then submit it to Congress.
Smith noted that last
August, just before Congress
took a summer break, State
Department and Pentagon of-
ficials told the House Foreign
Affairs subcommittee on
Europe and the Middle East
that a package had not yet
been agreed upon.
But a week after Congress
adjourned, The Washington
Post gave details of a $1 billion
arms sale package the Ad-
ministration was planning to
submit, Smith said.
Smith said he believes the
Administration is consulting
with members of the Senate
and with House Speaker
James Wright (D., Tex.) and
other House leaders but not
with the members of the
House Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee which will be the first to
deal with any arms proposal.
The Administration may be
concentrating on the Senate
since House rejection is a cer-
tainty and the fate of arms
proposals usually lies in the
Senate.
Smith noted that the Ad-
ministration has to submit the
proposal to Congress this
week or next since it must give
Congress the required 50 days
to consider an arms proposal
before its expected adjourn-
ment in November.
Another reason may be the
scheduled visit to Washington
in mid-October of Saudi Crown
Prince Abdullah. This was
denied by Oakley, who said the
Administration has no
timetable.
The Administration is "try-
ing to do something to make
the Saudis happy," Rep. John
Kasich (R., Ohio) said. "They
fully expect us to shoot it
down."
This assessment appeared to
be confirmed by Oakley Tues-
day. When she was asked if
she believed the Administra-
tion's plea for an open mind
would convince some of those
opposed, she replied, "I didn't
say we could; I said we are urg-
ing them."
Oakley stressed that the Ad-
ministration believes "the
sales we are considering will
indeed serve and protect the
national interest of the United
States in this important region
of the world. These sales are
not a spur of the moment
gesture. They would be consis-
tent with Middle East policy
followed by Republican and
Democratic Administrations."
Smith stressed Wednesday
that Congress believes the
relationship between Saudi
Arabia and the U.S. is impor-
tant. But he noted this would
be the fourth sale to the Saudis
in nine months. Levine said
Congress this year approved
the sale of attack helicopters,
Bradley fighting vehicles and
electronic equipment to the
Saudis. A proposal to sell the
Saudis the Maverick missiles
was withdrawn last June
because of Congressional
opposition.
The Administration scaled
down a $2 billion arms pro-
posal to the Saudis in 1986 to
$200 million because of Con-
gressional opposition, Smith
said. He said they are now us-
ing "salami" tactics, slicing up
the proposals to submit them a
bit at a time. He said he believ-
ed that this is only the beginn-
ing of the arms the Ad-
ministration plans to sell the
Saudis.
Oakley also stressed Tues-
day that the proposed sale
would not endanger Israel.
"These arms sales would not
affect the Arab-Israel military
balance in any meaningful
way," she said. "The Ad-
ministration remains commit-
ted to maintaining Israel's
qualitative edge."
But Weber said that concern
for Israel was not the main
reason for the Congressional
opposition. He noted that in
collecting Republican
signatures for the House let-
ters, Republicans stressed
their concern that the Saudis
have not cooperated in the
Mideast peace effort.
"It is unfortunate that these
sales are being opposed by
some when the Saudis are pro-
viding critical support to U.S.
Naval operations in the (Per-
sian) Gulf in ways which many
in Congress have long urged,'
Oakley said.
But several Congressmen at
the press conference Wednes-
day said the U.S. operation in
the Gulf is in the Saudi in-
terest. Smith noted that for
too long the U.S. has
"substituted" arms sales for a
"a long-term foreign policy."

The Palm Beaches Differ From Other Communities
Continued from Page 1
of 60, the Palm Beach County study area (Boyn-
Beach to Jupiter/Tequesta) ranks high in com-
rison with other cities. Miami is the next highest at
percent, with New York showing 23 percent in
it age bracket.
comparison with the Jewish population in 17
r cities throughout the country, the Palm
les is surpassed only by South Palm Beach Coun-
|with 76 percent.
lmost 54 percent of the local Jewish population is
ale. This imbalance is*to be expected in an elderly
and over) population. In this case, however, the
lance is not quite as severe as Miami, Atlantic Ci-
San Diego (all at 56 percent).
Ls a result of the age structure of the community,
i Jewish population of the Palm Beaches has the
^est household size (1.98 persons) in any of the com-
ison communities except South Palm Beach Coun-
1.96 persons). On the other end of the scale, the
st persons per household (2.8) can be found in
/eland. New York has 2.4 persons per household.
)ut 23 percent of the households contain a single
m living alone.
ws in the Palm Beaches are much more likely to
ently married than those in any of the other
iparison cities. With 82 percent of Jewish adults
married, the Palm Beaches lead other cities such as
Rochester (71 percent), New York (65 percent),
Miami (61 percent) and Los Angeles (57 percent).
Four percent of this community's Jewish population
is single which is low compared to Denver with 23 per-
cent and New York with 15 percent. Widows and
widowers make up 12 percent of the Jewish popula-
tion of the Palm Beaches which is still high in com-
parison with Baltimore (9 percent), lower than Miami
(23 percent), but fairly comparable to New York (11
percent).
Divorced persons comprise only 3 percent of the
Jewish population locally making the number of
divorced persons in the Palm Beaches the lowest of
any other city noted for comparison in the study. It is
comparable to Rochester and St. Paul. At the other
end, Los Angeles leads the Jewish communities
studied with 14 percent followed by Milwaukee and
Phoenix with 10 percent each, and 9 percent for New
York.
Of those Jewish adults employed in the Palm Beach
County study area, 42 percent work in a professional
capacity which ranks this area fourth among the
Jewish populations in 13 cities. Only the Jewish
population of Milwaukee, Richmond, and Nashville
are higher. Blue collar workers constitute only 8 per-
cent of the Jewish population locally. A majority of
cities have populations with a higher percent in this
category.
Only 2 percent of the Jewish population of the Palm
Beaches is born here, the study indicates. This is the
lowest percentage compared with the Jewish popula-
tion of other cities. Baltimore has 50 percent locally
born, Chicago 66 percent, and Cleveland 58 percent.
Dr. Ira Sheskin, Associate Professor of Geography at
the University of Miami who directed the study for
the Federation, points out that a low percentage of
locally born population is a concern throughout the
country. "People are living in communities where
they have no roots. They don't have what
geographers call a sense of place, feeling part of the
community. This is a problem, particularly in sunbelt
communities, where retirees move into an area after
having lived in another community most of their
lives.77
On the other hand, the Palm Beach County study
area has the lowest percentage of foreign born (8 per-
cent). The comparison with neighboring Miami (27
percent) is striking, according to Dr. Sheskin. "Ap-
parently, Miami has been the destination for many
first generation Jews, whereas second generation
Jews settle in the Palm Beaches. This has enormous
implications for the future."

Jewish Museum Displays
Dreyfus Affair Exhibit
By ROCHELLE SAIDEL
NEW YORK (JTA) -
"The Dreyfus Affair: Art,
Truth and Justice," on view at
the Jewish Museum here
through Jan. 14, 1988, is a
remarkable testimony to the
interaction of politics, art and
the press, using original works
of high and popular art,
newspapers, early cinema,
photographs and memorabilia.
This major exhibit surveys
the circumstances surrounding
the arrest and exoneration 12
years later of Captain Alfred
Dreyfus, a French army of-
ficer and an assimilated Alsa-
tian Jew.
In 1894, Dreyfus was charg-
ed in France on false evidence
of spying. He was subsequent-
ly stripped of his rank, con-
demned to life imprisonment
on Devil's Island, retried on
appeal, reconvicted, ex-
onerated, and in 1906
reinstated in the army with
high honors. The exhibit clear-
ly demonstrates that anti-
Semitism was a major factor in
the Dreyfus Affair.
Grandson of Dreyfus, Dr.
Jean-Louis Levy of Paris, said
at the opening of the exhibit
last month that Dreyfus was
isolated on Devil's Island for
1,237 days. He was able to sur-
vive only because he had
sworn an oath to his wife and
children that he would regain
the honor of his name, Levy
said.
"During the Dreyfus case,
an explorer was caught in the
polar ice. When he was
rescued, his first question was:
'Is Dreyfus free'? Levy said.
"We must never stop asking
ourselves this very question. Is
Dreyfus free?"
"The Dreyfus Affair was a
lesson for the 20th century
because it established the
modern role of politically
engaged intellectuals," exhibit
curator Norman Kleeblatt
said.
In the introductory chapter
of the exhibit catalogue,
Kleeblatt states: "The posi-
tions of the opinion makers vis-
a-vis the military, the church,
the fallen monarchy,
capitalism, and the highly visi-
ble Jewish community were
polarized into two perhaps too
simplistic factions the
Dreyfusards and the anti-
Deryfusards ... The Affair
established for the first time in
history a new role of social and
political activism for writers,
artists, and academicians, set-
ting the pace for the involve-
ment of the same groups in the
ever more pressing and har-
rowing dilemmas of the 20th
century. In fact the term in-
tellectual as it is understood
today has its roots in the
France of the Affair."
Exhibit's blazing newspaper
headlines dramatize the per-
vasiveness of the case in
French society. In addition to
the famous "J'Accuse" of
Emile Zola in the Jan. 13,1898
Aurore, there are numerous
pro-and-anti-Dreyfus
headlines and news posters.
If Zola's "J'Accuse" an
open letter to the President of
France, which denounced the
perpetrators of the injustice
against Dreyfus was the
prototype of Dreyfusard press,
the anti-Semite Edouard Dru-
mont, editor of the journal La
Libre Parole, was the per-
sonification of the anti-
Dreyfusard press.
His journal, launched in
1892, assailed Jews in the ar-
my and the Dreyfusards. Six
years earlier, Drumont had
written La France Juive, at-
tacking Jews in finance and
rehashing medieval anti-
Semitism.
In the foreword of the ex-
hibit catalogue, Eugen Weber,
a prominent historian of
modern European history,
describes the Dreyfus Affair
as the first long-running media
event. He says:
"It was the anti-Semitic
press that pushed hesitant
military officials into pro-
secuting and convicting
Dreyfus on flimsy evidence. It
was in the press that the ad-
vocates of revision made their
case. It was a press hungry for
sensational fare to serve up to
its public that launched the
tales of Jewish, clerical,
military, or foreign plots and
counterplots, which turned a
mere court case into an Affair
and endowed it with moral and
historical dimensions. Without
the press, there would have
been no Dreyfus Affair.
Without the press Dreyfus
would not have been vin-
dicated. We may regard the
scandal of Dreyfus as the first

oziy Sanctuary In Costa Rica
NEW YORK (JTA) A
crainian post-war emigre to
le United States whose
:kground as a Nazi col-
lator was confirmed by
J.S. federal court has received
I temporary residency visa in
jsta Rica, according to a
[port in the Sept. 20 edition
The Ukrainian Weekly,
ktelined San Jose, Costa
Sohdan Koziy fled to Costa
ia from the U.S. about three
irs ago to avoid impending
[portation to the Soviet
lion, where he is himself ac-
sed of the deportations and
lings of Soviet (Ukrainian)
izens in World War II.
?he Costa Rican Minister of
Interior, Ronaldo Ramirez,
(announcing that Koziy and
wife, Yaroslava, had been
inted the visas, expressed
ibt about the sufficiency of
evidence against Koziy
ftsented by the Soviets. "His
)posed authorship of crimes
inst Jews has not been
lonstrated," Ramirez said,
ling that Koziy had not
|ken any Costa Rican laws
therefore, the Costa Rican
rernment had no reason to
deport him.
On Aug. 14, 1985, NBC
Nightly News revealed that
Koziy was in Costa Rica,
where he was reported living
in a luxurious hacienda. On
Sept. 14, 1985, The New York
Times, in an article titled
"Costa Rica's Image as Haven
Fading," reported that Koziy
had been in that country since
October 1984.
Koziy had owned the Flying
Club Motel in Fort Lauder-
dale, Florida, which he
reportedly sold.
In the report in The Ukrai-
nian Weekly, Ramirez failed to
mention any American fin-
dings against Koziy his age
has been reported as both 64
and 67 who was stripped of
his U.S. citizenship in March
1982 for having lied about his
wartime activities when he
entered the U.S. in 1949. He
became a naturalized U.S.
citizen in 1956.
Even more startling about
the Costa Rican move to grant
Koziy temporary residence are
previous moves by the Costa
Rican government itself to
deport him. In August 1986,
U.S. To Allow Israel To
Sell Jets To Colombia
By HUGH ORGEL
:L AVIV (JTA) The
jted States will allow Israel
sll 14 of its Kfir jet fighter
les to Colombia a $100
lion deal to help cushion
losses resulting from
kcellation of the Lavi jet
iter-plane project, Israel
iio reported Thursday, Oct.
according to Israel Radio,
cretary of State George
iltz informed Foreign
lister Shimon Peres of the
lerican decision at their
fetings at the United Na-
is in New York last month.
The Kfir, the first supersonic
ibat aircraft designed and
in Israel, was the precur-
of the Lavi, a more advanc-
sophisticated plane.
luse its engines and other
iponents were manufac-
jrd in America, the U.S.
Id exercise veto power over
sales to third countries.
That restricted export op-
rtunities, particularly to
kin American countries
^ere the Kfir would compete
th American aircraft sales.
But Israel has leased a number
of Kfir jets to the U.S. Marine
Corps and other military bran-
ches which use them to
simulate Soviet MIGs in air
combat training.
The Lavi, like the Kfir, was
manufactured by Israel Air-
craft Industries (IAI) and was
to have been Israel's second
generation jet fighter. It was
funded largely by U.S. military
grants and Washington had
been urging Israel for more
than a year to abandon the
project because of excessive
costs.
The American position was
suppored by many senior
Israel Defense force and Air
force officers and by defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin on
grounds that the Lavi was ab-
sorbing funds from other vital-
ly needed advanced weapons
systems.
The government decided on
August 30 to drop the Lavi, a
decision that resulted in
several hundred dismissals at
the IAI plant with many more
to follow. The U.S. has promis-
ed to assist Israel in making up
the economic losses.

Costa Rican Deputy Interior
Minister Alvara Ramos an-
nounced that the government
was seeking a court order to
expel Koziy.
Then, in March of this year,
Koziy was ordered extradited
to the Soviet Union by the
Costa Rican Superior Penal
Tribunal of Alajuela. At that
time, the public prosecutor of
San Jose said that the court's
extradition ruling could not be
appealed.
In 1979, the U.S. Justice
Department's Office of Special
Investigations (OSI) had filed a
complaint seeking Koziy's
denaturalization, which was
followed by the 1982 trial in
Federal District Court in West
Palm Beach, Florida.
Former OSI director Allan
Ryan Jr., in his book "Quiet
Neighbors," described Koziy
as a member of the Ukrainian
police auxiliary in Stanislau
that operated under German
direction during the war. His
identity and occupation were
corroborated by German in-
surance documents found.
At his trial, the OSI
presented, on videotape,
several Soviet and Polish
witnesses who testified that
they had known Koziy. They
decribed his role in the killing
of Stanislau's Jews, particular-
ly his singling out of Jewish
children as victims. Their
description were graphic and
horrifying.
Eli Rosenbaum, who was a
prosecutor for the OSI during
Koziy's trial in Florida, said,
"What is doubly offensive is
not only that the Costa Rican
government is not extraditing
him to stand trial in the Soviet
Union, as its own courts have
authorized, but they are not
even moving to expel him from
Costa Rica. Now the Interior
Minister intercedes after all
these proceedings and
substitutes his own judgment
that there is insufficient
evidence. That's utterly fan-
tastic. What more would he
like to see?"
Ruben Robles, Ministerial
Consul of the Costa Rican Em-
bassy in Washington, told JTA
that Ramirez granted the tem-
porary visa because the ex-
tradition order is still in pro-
cess of execution. "Extradi-
tion proceedings were started
in the courts. Until final court
notification regarding his ex-
tradition is taken, he (Koziy)
may remain."
In 1982, West Germany
refused to acquiesce to a
Justice Department request to
extradite Koziy from the U.S.
and prosecute him despite con-
clusive evidence that Koziy
had killed a four-year-old
Jewish girl.
In August 1986, Kalman
Sultanik, vice president of the
World Jewish Congress and
chairman of the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Council's
Committee on Anti-Semitism,
released Justice Department
documents indicating that the
West German government
declined the American request
despite agreeing with
American authorities that the
child had been murdered by
Koziy.
At Koziys' 1982 trial,
eyewitnesses described
Koziy's snatching of Monica
Singer, the four-year-old
daughter of a local Jewish doc-
tor, and his taking her to the
police station. The witnesses
described her crying, "Mother
he's going to shoot me," and
"I want to live." Koziy took
out his pistol; her mother turn-
ed her head.
In July 1982, the OSI wrote
to the West German Ministry
of Justice, suggesting that
Koziy be extradited for "per-
sonally and single-handedly"
murdering the girl "by
shooting her at pointblank
range." In the same letter, the
OSI refers to Koziy actively
participating in the murders of
members of another Jewish
family.
The West German Foreign
Office declined the American
request in a diplomatic note to
the American Embassy in
Bonn on March 28, 1983. The
note, refusing "to initiate ex-
tradition proceedings in this
case," nevertheless conceded
"there is no doubt as to
Koziy's participation in the
two aforementioned shooting
incidents."
The West German govern-
ment described the crimes as
"manslaughter" rather than
"murder" because the killigs
could not demonstrate "cruel-
ty, iniquity, lust for murder,
and base motives." Therefore,
the German document said,the
crimes were no longer pro-
secutable because the statute
of limitations on them had run
out in the spring of 1960.
"Cruelty would exist only if
the perpetrator, beyond the
purpose of executing the kill-
ings, had imposed special pain
or torture on the victims out of
a mentality entirely devoid of
feeling or mercy The fact
that one of the victims was a
four-year-old child in itself
does not suffice to establish a
determination of a cruel or
underhanded killing .. The
available documents do not
show any indications that, ac-
cording to the meaning of the
law, Koziy acted out of a lust
for murder."

Recapturing Laughter On Simchat Torah

By RABBI ALAN L. COHEN
Temple Beth El
To think and write about
laughter and celebration are
easy tasks. We all know how to
have a good time. Who doesn't
enjoy a lively party? Yet,
Jewishly speaking, this isn't
always as easy as it appears or
sounds. Too often overlooked
or lost amidst the more serious
times are the opportunities to
celebrate in a Jewish context.
Indeed, at this time of the
year, our Jewish emphasis has
been the very serious one

Anti-Semite Law Possible
NEW YORK Dr. Alois Mock, Vice-Chancellor and
Foreign Minister of Austria, condemned the Nazi
Holocaust "as the most hideous and abominable crime,"
and pledged that Austria's Second Republic "will do
everything necessary to prevent that demoniacal cancer
from happening again."
Mock, who is also chairman of the Austrian Peoples Par-
ty (OVP), declared that he supports a proposed law in the
Austrian Parliament outlawing anti-Semitism as a criminal
offense. The legislation has just been approved by a
Parliamentary committee, and will shortly come before the
full parliament for adoption.

SARAH STOLLBERG
Sarah Esther Stollberg,
daughter of Allan and Martha
Stollberg of West Palm Beach
will be called to the Torah as a
Bat Mitzvah on Saturday, Oc-
tober 17 at Temple Judea.
Rabbi Joel Levine will
officiate.
Sarah is a 7th grade student
at Jefferson Davis Middle
School. She attends Midrasha
and is interested in Girl Scouts
and soccer. She will be twinn-
ed with Inna Shapiro of
Moscow, who was denied her
freedom to be called to the
Torah as a Bat Mitzvah.
She will be joined by her
grandparents, Wilhelmine
Stollberg of Lake Worth and
Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Rano of
Massachusetts, plus many
friends and family members.
JONATHAN ZWICKEL
Jonathan Adam Zwickel, son
of Gary and Linda Zwickel of
West Palm Beach will be Bar
Mitzvah Saturday, October 17
at Temple Beth El. Rabbi Alan
Cohen and Cantor Norman
Brody will officiate.
Jonathan attends the Ben-
jamin School where he is an
eighth grade student. He is a
graduate of Temple Beth El's
religious school, is a member
of Kadima and Young Judaea.
He has received the Presiden-
tial Academic Fitness Award
and an award for the most
outstanding art work in 7th
grade. He is interested in com-
puters, science, soccer, tennis,
art and space exploration.
Jonathan will be twinned
with Uri Lizunov of Kiev,
Soviet Union. Uri's family has
been "adopted" by the Zwickel
family, who have been writing
to the Lizunovs for two years.
They have received one
response. Jonathan will also
become a Bar Mitzvah at the
Western Wall on November
26, where he will be joined by
his grandparents, parents and
brother.
created by the atmosphere of
Rosh Hashanah and Yom
Kippur.
But there are occasions to
"Jewishly let our hair down."
One of the best opportunities
is Simchat Torah. The day on
which "we rejoice with the
Torah" concludes the holiday
period which began weeks ago
on Rosh Hashanah. The note
on which we take leave of the
holiday season is not one of
sadness, fasting and long days
of prayer but singing, dancing
and a certain degree of frivoli-
ty. For those Jews who limit
their ritual and religious ex-
posure to the first 10 days of
Tishri, they are missing an en-
tire other side a different
perspective to our tradition.
Our tradition's richness is
not only in that it provides
outlets for all of the emotions
but that also when we have
celebrations like Simchat
Torah, they are firmly ground-
ed in substance and meaning.
Our joy is not just to have a
good time but to celebrate an
act which is integral to our
very being Torah and
learning.
When the Jew learns, it is a
time of excitement and great
adventure. When he concludes
a section of learning, there is
the siyum the meal and
celebration during which he
shares his joy and discovery
with friends and community
members. Then, he resumes
his studies towards the next
completion (siyum). There is
always great joy in this cycle.
The ultimate experience one
shared by the whole communi-
ty is to conclude and resume
studying the Torah. Simchat
Torah is, therefore, a "Super
Siyum."
The importance of such
celebration is always em-
phasized when contrasted to
other means too often used for
"partying." The "highs" ex-
perienced on Simchat Torah
are naturally brought about
because of our love for learn-
ing and tradition. The stimula-
tion and stimulants do not
have to be sought furtively or
illicitly. They are openly
available to everyone in a com-
munity whose members wish
to partake.
This refreshing attitude is so
important that we must not
lose sight of it. We must make
every effort to encourage it.
We must help people recognize
that Jews do not only "weep or
beat their breasts' but they
also sing and dance. Not every
prayer is as somber as "Al
Chait" or the "Vidui." This is
balanced with words like "Sisu
V'simchu B'simchat Torah"
(rejoice and be happy it's Sim-
chat Torah) and pranks like ty-
ing the Rabbi's tzitzit in a knot
or to a chair. This year, the
acronym for the Hebrew let-
ters equivalent to 5748 can be
read as the Hebrew word
"Tismach" "you shall be
happy." Let us, indeed, rejoice
and be happy on this most
festive of celebrations.
Chag Sameach!

great triumph of the Fourth

Regarding the anti-Semitism
that permeated the Dreyfus
Affair, Weber says: "Explana-
tions of anti-Semitism come
from as many directions as do
rationalizations of anti-
Semitism. None seems to me
as forceful as the fact that
items that reflect the Affair
can be viewed as precursors of
similar current items. Fin-de-
siecle ladies' fans, children's
French Jewry was the first cartoons, board games, picture
history and cultural tradition
made Jews the resident aliens
par excellence."
Temple Israel offers six
adult education courses to the
community this fall, including
a Temple Film Festival. On
Tuesday evenings, starting
Oct. 27, the Temple will show a
series of eight films in the
Sanctuary. The series is co-
sponsored by the Jewish Com-
munity Center.
The schedule starts with
"The Apprenticeship of Duddy
Kravitz, followed by:
"Lies My Father Told Me"
- Nov. 3
"The Pawnbroker" -
Nov. 10
"Gentlemen's Agree-
ment" Nov. 17
"Sallah" Nov. 24
"I Never Sang for my
Father" Dec. 1
"The Fixer" Dec. 8
"The Front" Dec. 15
Admission to the films is $12
for the entire series or $2 per
film.
Temple Israel also offers
weekly courses in reading
Hebrew, starting Oct. 25, and
in conventional Hebrew, star-
ting Oct. 28. Instruction fees
are $18 for Temple members
and $25 for non-members.
The temple also has a course
in Modern Hebrew Literature,
taught Tuesday afternoons by
Rabbi Howard Shapiro. The
Rabbi also hosts a monthly
lunch discussion on
Wednesdays.
There is a one-time enroll-
ment fee of $10 for temple
members and $15 for non-
members that is applied to all
courses except the Temple
Film Festival.

JERUSALEM A new
study of traffic accidents in
Israel shows that young
women 18 to 20 years of age
are the nation's safest drivers.
The study, prepared by a
team at the Hadassah-Hebrew
University School of Public
Health headed by
epidemiologist Dr. Eliahu
Richter, recommends that
more young women in the
Israel Defense Forces be train-
ed to drive military vehicles.
The study also found that
the rate of serious injuries in
traffic accidents on Israel's
streets and highways declined
from 1979 to 1985, largely
because a rise in gasoline
prices forced drivers to cut
back on the number of trips
they took and their highway
speed. The Hadassah team
cited an increase in the
number of buses in Israel's
public transportation fleet and
a rigorously enforced law re-
quiring seat belt use as also
contributing to the decline in
serious and fatal accidents.
But since 1985, the study
shows, the number of ac-
cidents, and highway deaths, is
once again on the rise. The in-
crease is attributed to the
design and engineering of
Israel's highways, speed, and a
dangerous mix of heavy trucks
Other steps recommended to
improve the safety of Israel's
roads include replacing metal
light poles with those made of
plastic, requiring trucks to
the French public interest for the New York Times, Polaroid

Highlight of the exhibit is a
room which displays and
chronicles the involvement of
some of the major artists of
times to make them more visi-
ble to other driver, banning
jeeps and other open-top
vehicles from inter-city
highways and requiring that
they be equipped with seat
belts and roll-bars to reduce
the risk of injury to
passengers.
The study was presented to
the Israeli government's
Ministerial Committee on
Traffic Accidents.

to realize that it was the
Dreyfus Affair that caused the
break between two important
artiste (Edgar) Degas and
(Camille) Pissarro, who had
been fast friends," Kleeblatt
says.
The Dreyfusard camp includ-
ed such prestigious painters as
Pissarro. Claude Monet, Mary
Cassatt, and Jean-Edouard
Vuillard; anti-Dreyfusards in-
cluded Degas, Paul Cezanne
and Pierre- Auguste Renoir.
"On the surface, the Affair
was as immediate as the latest
newspaper or broadside. On a
more fundamental level
more evident in the fine arts
there were basic social and
ethical issues at stake,"
museum director Joan Rosen-
baum says in the preface of the
catalogue. She refers to "the
responsibility of the press, the
power of the individual versus

and intellectual in society, and
the insidious nature of anti-
