Israel:
Summit Aided Jordan At PLO's Expense

JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The three-day Arab summit
meeting in Amman ended
Wednesday (Nov. 11) in a
clear-cut political victory for
its host, King Hussein of
Jordan.
The Hashemite monarch,
who has never been accused of
audacity in expressing
moderate views among his
peers, this time placed on the
table his plans for an interna-
tional peace conference as an
instrumentality for negotia-
tions with Israel.
And he won endorsement for
it, even the grudging approval
of President Hafez Assad of
Syria, long a bitter foe of any
approach to peace with Israel
and until recently one of Hus-
sein's severest critics.
The king was able to claim at
the end of the summit that it
had brought to the Arabs unity
of "word, stand and goal." In-
deed, the participants ex-
hibited a skill rare in inter-
Arab diplomacy of burying, or
at least white-washing, their
traditional differences. Even
such arch-enemies as Assad
and President Saddam Hus-
sein of Iraq exchanged smiles.
Observers may have
wondered beforehand why

Tension High
In Gaza
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Tension is running high in the
Gaza Strip following the fatal
shooting of a 17-year-old Arab
girl Tuesday (Nov. 10) and the
wounding of two others
Wednesday in clashes between
rock-throwing students and
armed Jewish settlers.
Six settlers wre detained for
questioning Tuesday and four
remained in custody Wednes-
day in connection with the
shooting death of Intissar El
A tar, a high school student in
Deir El Balah, a normally quiet
town in the southern end of
the Gaza Strip. The four are
expected to be arraigned in
court Thursday.
The settlers insist they fired
only warning shots into the air

In making the announce-
ment, Alan Shulman, Major
Gifts Chairman, said, "The
fact that the ambassador is
taking his time from his very
busy schedule to come to our
community and participate in
our Major Gifts event signifies
his recognition of the impor-
tance of our community within
the total Jewish experience
worldwide. We welcome him
and look forward to his first-
hand appraisal of the situation
in the Middle East."
Born in Romania in 1934,
the Honorable Moshe Arad im-
migrated to Israel in 1950.
Following his service as a Cap-
tain in the Israel Defense
Forces, he studied at the
Hebrew University of
Jerusalem, where he received
a Bachelor degree in Political
Science and International
Relations. In 1962 he was
awarded a LLB degree from

In 1976, Ambassador Arad
returned to Israel and was
placed in charge of the Office
of the Director-General of the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The following year he was ap-
pointed the Assistant

and 12th Street, according to
Alec Engelstein, Chairman of
the JCCampus Building Com-
mittee. Actual construction is
slated to begin in the Spring.
A final choice of architect
has been made and will be an-
nounced shortly, Mr. Engels-
tein said. He indicated that
plans are being made to visit
similar campus facilities in
other cities throughout the
United States. "From the ex-
perience of other communities,
we can gain greater insight in-
to creative and successful
facility planning," he said.
The JCCampus, which will
serve as the central focus for
Jewish activities in the Palm
Beaches, will house the Jewish
Community Center, the
Jewish Family and Children's
Service, and the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County.

Thousands Expected
For Washington Rally
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Planes are already booked
solid in many cities and hun-
dreds of buses in New York
are chartered to bring Jews to
the Mobilization to the Summit
march and rally scheduled
here Dec. 6.
The demonstrators intend to
show their support for Soviet
Jewry on the eve of the
meetings between President
Reagan and Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev, according
to David Harris, the AJCom-
mittee's Washington represen-
tative and coordinator of the
mobilization.
He said all flights arriving
here from Dayton, Ohio, and
Kansas City have been booked
for that weekend and that
Philadelphia and Baltimore
are expected to send 10,000
demonstrators each. Miami
has chartered two jetliners and
is holding space on commercial
flights in anticipation of its
contingent, 35 Palm Beach
residents will also be in atten-
dance at the rally.
Harris spoke to reporters
following a day of briefings in
Congress and the administra-
tion for about 25 represen-
tatives of a dozen
communities.
They met with Richard
Shifter, assistant secretary of
state for human rights and
humanitarian affairs; Rozanne
Ridgway, assistant secretary
of state for Europe and
Canada; Rep. Dante Fascell
(D., Fla.), chairman of the
House Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee; and Sen. Daniel
Moynihan (D., N.Y.).
Theodore Ellenoff, AJCom-
mittee president, said the of-
ficials were highly supportive
of the mobilization plans, and
indicated that the demonstra-
tion should not be "modest."
Fascell showed strong interest
in attending, stating "his pas-
sionate belief in human liber-
ties," Ellenoff said.
The rally, to be held from 1
p.m. to 4 p.m. that Sunday,
will call on the Soviets to per-
mit the emigration of all Jews
who seek it, and to allow those
that want to remain in the
Soviet Union to practice their
religion without reprisal, he
said.
The demonstrators will
assemble at the Ellipse, near
the White House, starting at
11 a.m. and then march to the
Lincoln Memorial.
Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel is
honorary chairman of the
event. Commitments to attend
have been received from
leading former refuseniks
Natan Sharansky, Ida Nudel
and Vladimir and Maria
Slepak.
Gorbachev is not expected to
arrive here until the following
evening. He then is scheduled
for talks with Reagan on Dec.
8 and 9 and to leave
Washington on Dec. 10.
Ellenoff defended the
scheduling of the mobilization
before Gorbachev's arrival. He
noted that it is being held on a
Sunday, which means people
can attend without having to
take off from work or school.
In addition, he said, the
mobilization "will have suffi-
cient reverberations to last all
the way through Monday,"
since Gorbachev's people
"read the press, observe the
streets, (and) listen to the
radio and TV." The summit
will mark Gorbachev's first
visit to the United States.
The demonstration will not
be an anti-Gorbachev protest,
but simply a pro-Soviet Jewry
event, he noted. "We will
carry this out in a dignified
and orderly fashion without
seeking to disrupt" summit ac-
tivities, he said.

Schwammberger, 75, was
arrested in the province of
Cordoba in northern Argen-

Buenos Aires, where he is
believed to have been in hiding
for about two weeks. He was
flown to Buenos Aires Firday
night and then moved back to
La Plata, 60 miles to the south,
for an extradition hearing.
Schwammberger was ar-

World War II, but it is believed

Nazi network called "Odessa,"

Center.

Hundreds Of Executions
The West German government
asked Argentina for Schwam-

ago. Documents provided by a
court in Stuttgart described
Schwammberger as a former
SS officer in Poland, responsi-
ble for hundreds of executions
while commandant of the Roz-
wadow labor camp in 1942, the
Przemysl camp at the end of
1943, and director of a concen-

Federation Inaugurates Speakers Bureau
Reaching Out To The Community
After nine months of
research and preparation, the
Community Relations Council
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County has laun-
ched a Speakers Bureau on
Jewish Public Affairs Issues.
Singlehandedly taking on the
organization and administra-
tion of this outreach effort to
the community is Eve Baum,
an active member of the CRC,
who has been named
Chairman.
"Our service is two-
pronged," stated Ms. Baum.
"We will provide speakers for
Jewish organizations
throughout the Palm Beaches
as well as for the Christian
community. We had an instant
response from our first mail-
ing and 17 programs have
already been booked in the
past two months. Three have
been completed and the
organizations were very pleas-
ed with our speakers and
delighted to have them."
Experts are available to ad-
dress the following issues:
Israel and the Middle East, the
Plight of the Soviet Jews, the
Holocust, Living Judaism, En-
counters with Anti-Semitism,
Church/State Issues, Inter-
faith Activities, and Cults and
Missionary Activities. Each
subject has several sub-topics.
For example, subjects for

Letter Received From Otzmanik In Israel
'I'm Having An Incredible Experience'
The following is a letter
received from Laura Klein
who is the Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County's par-
ticipant in the Otzma program
in Israel. Otzma is an early
leadership identification pro-
gram for young adults aged
18-24, designed to strengthen
the bonds between North
American communities and
Israel. The program involves a
two-tiered service concept
comprised of a year of service
in Israel followed by a commit-
ment of a year of service at
home upon return. Par-
ticipants in Otzma from the
Palm Beaches are recruited,
screened and provided with
fellowships by Federation
under the auspices of the Otz-
ma Committee. The Chairman
of this committee is Milton
Gold.
While in Israel, each partici-
pant is provided with an
"adoptive parent" a
member of the Israel Forum
who serves as a support
system and becomes a perma-
nent personal tie to Israel
afterwards. The Israel Forum
sponsors Otzma in Israel along
with the Jewish Agency, in
cooperation with the Youth
and Hechalutz Department of
the World Zionist
Organization.
Ms. Klein arrived in Israel in
September and wrote this let-
ter after spending a month
working and studying on a
kibbutz.

Otzma, contact Mark Mendel,
Young Adult Division Direc-
tor, at the Federation office,

Shalom,
While visiting my adoptive
family in Yehud (a suburb of
Tel Aviv), I spied their word
processor and was overwhelm-

write. As everyday goes by
and I find another excuse not
to write, my experiences pile
up and the letter is already
verging on becoming a novel.
I will start with today. While

to see my "adoptive family."
Since tomorrow is Simchat

called my "mom" who
responded, "Of course you will
come." So I hoped on a bus
after work and was welcomed
with "Give me your laundry
and go take a nap." I really
do. My "mom" Tova is one of

Israel Rethinks The Gulf
For most of Israel's history, Iraq has been
the Jewish state's most implacable enemy
and Iran one of its most important allies.
Israeli officials have sought contacts with
the Iranians whenever possible, and have
seen the seven-year-old Iran-Iraq war as a
convenient way to tie up two potential foes.
But now Israeli officials are rethinking
their traditional positions. In his U.N.
General Assembly speech, Israeli Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres said that both na-
tions posed an equal threat to Israel and he
called for an end to the Gulf War.
A "senior member" of Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir's Likud coalition recently told
the Wall Street Journal, "If the Iraqis are
ready to have some rapprochement, I think
they will find some interest here." The of-
ficial also reportedly said that if Baghdad
were to call publicly for an end to the Arab-
Israeli conflict and terrorism, Israel would
consider providing intelligence on Iranian-
backed terrorist groups, assuring the securi-
ty of an Iraqi oil pipeline which runs through
Jordan to the port of Aqaba on the Israeli
border, and eventually opening diplomatic
relations.
But Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin told
foreign journalists in Tel Aviv that although
Iran is currently Israel's "bitter enemy,"
the friendly relations that existed between
the two countries for 28 years could resume
following Ayatollah Khomeini's demise.
The Israeli debate on the Gulf has been
joined by academics, Knesset members,
Cabinet-level officials and members of both
the Defense and Foreign Ministries. Posi-
tions transcend party lines.
The reassessment was promopted by a
number of factors: First, Washington's
growing involvement in the Gulf conflict and
its apparent tilt toward Iraq have put Israeli
policymakers at odds with their American
counterparts. Second, an Iranian victory
would further destabilize the Gulf and "in-
calculably alter" the strategic environment
in which Israel exists, according to one
analyst. Third, Iran continues to send men
weapons and $60 million to $70 million an-
nually to anti-Israel terrorists in Lebanon.
Finally, Israel fears the magnetism of
Iranian-style fundamentalism among Arabs
in Israel, the territories, Egypt and other
states.
But Israeli policymakers are also en-
couraged by the fact that Iraq has discarded
its radical, anti-Israel rhetoric of years past
in favor of a more moderate tone. Before he
returned to Baghdad to become Deputy
Foreign Minister, former Iraqi Ambassador
to the United States, Nizar Hamdoon, told
NEB, "We do not hope there will be another
Arab-Israeli war ... I don't think (the
Arabs) are in favor of throwing the Jews in-
to the sea as the slogans said 20 years ago
... We are looking for a reasonable solution
to the Palestinian question."
Some Israeli policymakers discount such
pronouncements as a ploy unsupported by
high-level officials to win American sup-
port. "It's not that we haven't looked for a
new (Iraqi) attitude; we just didn't see it," a
Knesset member told the Wall Street Jour-
the
nal. But Western analysts and others have
seen an "important shift" in Iraq's attitude
toward Israel.
The pro-Iranian school contends that were
the war to end, Iraq's 1.5 million-man army,
armed with the most sophisticated conven-
tional weapons in the world, would be free to
fight Israel; that Iran's 30,000 Jews remain
at the mercy of the regime; and that Israel
must lay the groundwork for cooperation
with Iran in a more moderate post-Khomeini
era. (These reasons were also used to justify
Israel's role in the sale of U.S. arms to Iran).
But others argue that Iraq's forces will be
pointed east toward Iran long after
hositities cease. They contend that Baghdad
will be reluctant to "stick its neck out" and
risk a war with Israel after its costly conflict
with Iran. By contrast, it will take years for
the virulent anti-Zionism of the Khomeini
years to fade.
Herzog's Historic Visit
Israeli President Chaim Herzog was in
Washington earlier this month, the first
Israeli head-of-state to visit the United
States. His trip, heavy in ceremony, was to
highlight the 40th anniversary of Israel and
the strong ties which characterize
U.S.-Israel relations.
Herzog met with President Reagan, and
other sessions were scheduled with Vice
President Bush and Secretary of State
Shultz. In his welcoming remarks to the
Israeli President, Reagan said that the
United States remains committed to achiev-
ing peace in the Middle East: "We share the
conviction that Israel can be secure and
realize its full promise and genius only when
security and lasting peace are achieved."
In an address to a joint meeting of Con-
gress one of few to host a foreign
statesman the Israeli President noted tha
this visit coincided with the anniversary of
Kristalnacht, the night in 1938 when the
Nazis destroyed Jewish businesses and in-
stitutions throughout Germany, and the an-
niversary of the 1975 United Nations resolu-
tion which equates Zionism with racism
Herzog, who was then Israel's Ambassador
to the U.N., thanked Congress for passing
H.J. Resolution 385 calling on the U.N. to
revoke the scurrilous resolution.
Herzog told Congress that he stood before
them as a representative of "a grateful na-
tion and a staunch ally." Noting that U.S.
aid to Israel "is extended as a function of the
vital interests of the United States," Herzog
added, "Thanks to your aid my small coun-
try is capable of defending all that you stand
for in terms of human freedom and dignity
in an area buffeted by the winds of ex-
tremism and fanaticism"
Arab Summit
As leaders of the Arab League met in Jor-
dan, a spokesman for the Abu Nidal ter-
rorist group claimed to have hijacked a
yacht off the Israeli coast (United Press In-
ternational, Nov. 9). A spokesman for Abu
Nidal said that the hijacking was intended to
embarrass Jordan's King Hussein.
Saudi Arabia called the Arab summit to
arrive at a unified strategy to confront non-
Arab Iran, but other issues, such as Egypt's
role in the Arab world and an international
conference on the Middle East, were epx-
ected to be put on the agenda. Hussein was
also to serve as intermediary between
Syria's Hafez Assad, an ally of Iran, and
Iraq's Saddam Hussein. PLO Chairman
Yasir Arafat was also expected to try to im-
prove relations with Assad and Hussein.

The Rhinestone Racist Flings
Hat in the Far Right Ring
By JUDY BOLTON
Has David Duke really hung
out his KKK sheets to dry?
The 36-year old former Im-
perial Wizard of the Knights of
the Ku Klux Klan (KKKK) and
the founder and president of
the National Association for
the Advancement of White
People (NAAWP), claims that
he has and recently announced
his intention to seek the
Democratic Presidential
nomination in 1988.
A long-time racist and anti-
Semitic agitator, Duke was in-
strumental in the Klan
resurgence of the 1970s and
continues to propagandize
white supremacist positions
through the NAAWP, an
organization that is, in effect,
a Klan without the robes.
Judy Bolton is a member of
the Research Department of
ADL's Civil Rights Division.
Last January, during the
Forsyth County, GA. integra-
tion demonstrations, Duke
was arrested (along with
Frank Shirley, a member of
Glenn Miller's North Carolina-
based White Patriot Party,
and Don Black, Duke's suc-
cessor as KKKK Imperial
Wizard) for reckless conduct
and illegally blocking a state
highway after a screaming
confrontation with the Georgia
Bureau of Investigation.
In an attempt to capitalize
on the aftermath of a
December 1986 racial incident
in Howard Beach, Duke visited
New York City in February as
a "white rights" activist.
Newsday described him as "All
dressed up, (but with) nowhere
to go." The article reported
that Duke's visit attracted lit-
tle attention and that he was
unable to set up a meeting he
sought with Mayor Edward I.
Koch or develop any other
publicity for his cause.
Duke first came to public at-
tention in the mid-1970s after
launching a publicity blitz that
not only boosted membership
in his Knights of the Ku Klux
Klan but somewhat
demystified Klan ritual. His
public campaign began at the
grass roots level as he urged
Klansmen to "get out of the
cow pasture and into hotel
meeting rooms."
Following his own advice,
Duke got himself on network

as illegal immigration, affir-

Jews And Presbyterians
Examine Common Threats And Concerns
By JOEL ROTEMAN
The Jewish Chronicle
of Pittsburgh
PITTSBURGH (JTA) -
Jewish and Presbyterian
leaders gathered here last
week for their first formal
public meeting since the
Presbyterian Church U.S.A.
adopted in June a controver-
sial position paper on its rela-
tionship with Jews.
The atmosphere was cordial
during the discussions held at
the Pittsburgh Theological
Seminary, although the two
sides differed markedly on the
seven-point paper's position on
Israel.
For example, the paper
declares: "We believe that no
government at any time can
ever be the full expression of
God's will ... Israel is a
geopolitical entity and is not to
be validated theologically."
This position is at odds with
a great many religious Zionists
and others.
While upholding the divine
promise of land to the Jewish
people, the Presbyterians
realized that, "We are enter-
ing a minefield of complexities
" political as well as
theobgical.
The paper then calls for
justice for "the dispossessed,"
meaning the Palestinians.
Even in apparent agree-
ment, there was conflict. In a
session devoted to "Who Is a
Faithful Jew Who Is a
Faithful Presbyterian," the
Rev. John Lolla cited the
similarities between the two
faiths.
But this also explained, in
his view, the Presbyterians'
theologically based concern for
the Palestinians.
"Like Judaism," said the
Presbyterian minister,
"justice is crucial to the
Presbyterian understanding of
life. Therefore, we have con-
cern for the Palestinians.
Presbyterianism has always
had a sense of political and
social activity. We have a
longstanding tradition of stan-
ding against government when
the government is against
God.'r
Like Judaism, he continued,
Presbyterianism begins with
the sovereignty of God. "In ad-
dition, we also share with
Judaism an affinity for the
law, the law that is created to
promote the goodness of the
person."
"We are watching our
decline," he added. "We are
on a survival modality like
Judaism. For Jews, the threat
is largely from without; for
Presbyterians, our threat is
from within."
The meeting in Pittsburgh
also considered a position in
the paper, entitled "A
Theological Understanding of
the Relationship Between
Christians and Jews," that
Jews welcomed the
Presbyterianism acceptance of
the Jewish covenantal rela-
tionship with God.
According to Rev. Robert
Brashear, executive director

Amman Review Rates
Hussein High Marks
By DR. GEORGE E. GRUEN
The special Arab League
Summit that met in Amman,
Jordan from Nov. 8 to 11 prov-

President Saddam Hussein on arrival for the
pan-Arab summit. Jordan hoped the gather-
ing would produce a stronger, united Arab

ed to be extraordinary for
several reasons. It was the
first time that the frequently
feuding leaders of the 21 Arab
states managed to get
together in over five years. It
was also the first summit to
focus primarily on inter-Arab
problems rather than on the
Arab-Israel dispute.
Indeed, the final declaration,
issued on Nov. 11, stressed
that "Arab solidarity was the
prime concern of the Arab
leaders." King Hussein in his
speech to the first closed ses-
sion of the conference had
dwelled upon the harmful ef-
fects of Arab "division and
discord" in meeting the
threats facing the region. His
theme of "Harmony and Ac-
cord" was chosen as the of-
ficial conference motto.
The stands adopted on par-
ticular issues were generally a
victory for the centrist consen-
sus advocated by Jordan,
Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Fear
of the consequences of escala-
tion of the war in the Persian
Gulf and the spread of militant
Islamic fundamentalism led
Iraq and the members of the
Gulf Cooperation Council to go
along. Even pro-Iranian Syria
and Libya joined in the final
declarati. n s expression of
"indignation at the Iranian
regime's intransigence, pro-
vocations and threats to the
Arab Gulf States." The Con-
ference condemned Iran's oc-
cupation of part of Iraq's ter-
ritory and its "procrastina-
tion in accepting UN Security
Council Resolution 598, calling
for a cease-fire. Without ex-
plicitly endorsing an arms em-
bargo, the Arab leaders called
on the international communi-
ty to "exert effective efforts
and adopt measures adequate"
to make the Iranians respond
to the calls for peace.
The Conference expressed
solidarity with Iraq "in
safeguarding its territories
and waters,' affirmed its sup-
port for Kuwait in confronting
Iranian "aggression" and "de-
nounced the bloody criminal
acts perpetrated by the Ira-
nians" during the latest
pilgrimage to Mecca. The con-
ference confirmed "total
solidarity" with Saudi Arabia
over its handling of the
pilgrimage. Rumors circulated
that the Saudis had pledged
some $2 billion to financially
hard-pressed Syria to get
President Hafez al-Assad not
to block adoption of the
declaration.
Syria and Libya prevented
formal readmission of Egypt
to the Arab League, but the
declaration emphasized the
value of mobilizing all Arab
resources and therefore con-
cluded that diplomatic rela-

Volunteers Recognized At
Morse Award Ceremonies
One hundred seven of
Florida's largest volunteer
organization were recognized
in award ceremonies recently
at the Joseph L. Morse
Geriatric Center in West Palm
Beach.
The Morse volunteers, 300
strong, were feted at a brunch
following the presentations.
A newly created award
designed in memory of a
volunteer who died earlier this
year, Meyer Einbinder, was
given to a dozen volunteers
who have served 1,000 to
2,000 hours at the Center.
Presenting the 14K gold pins
he designed especially for the
top volunteers was Scott Ein-
binder of New Jersey as
members of the Einbinder
family looked on.
One thousand hour reci-
pients of the Einbinder award
included Jean Cohen, Sylvia
Gold, Gert Levitan, Kitty
Nachshen, Lou Nachshen and
Maxine Rubin.
Fifteen hundred hour reci-
pients are Israel Cohen and
Elaine Mark.
Two thousand hour
volunteers are Michael Ber-
noski, Harry Cohen
Harold Johnson.
and
The volunteer with 2,500
hours is Shirley Spiegel.
According to Scott Ein-
binder, the pin he designed in-
corporates symbols of a fist
"A sign of commitment; a
torch as a sign of hope, and a
heart for love."
Einbinder said, "We feel
these characteristics make a
great volunteer. These
characteristics we know our
grandfather had as does any
volunteer who achieves 1,000
hours of service."
Einbinder Award
Memorializes Morse Volunteer
Although the cancer in his
lungs slowed his pace, 80-year-
old Meyer Einbinder would not
allow it to interfere with his
dedicated volunteer service to
the residents of the Jsepeh L.
Morse Geriatric Center in
West Palm Beach. The day
before he died (June 17, 1987),
he was in his usual place enter-
taining residents at the card
table in the Center's first floor
solarium.
Sunday, November 15, Mr.
Einbinder was memorialized in
the presentation of the first
Einbinder Award during
Volunteer Recognition Day at
the Center. The Einbinder
award was created and
presented by Mr. Einbinder's
grandson Scott Einbinder who
lives in New Jersey.
The award, a uniquely
designed gold pin, singles out
Morse volunteers who have
given special and long service
to the facility's residents.
"We are touched and pleas-
ed by Mr. Einbinder's grand-
son's though tfulness," said
Micki Ross, Volunteer Coor-
dinator for Morse. "We know
this award will be cherished by
its recipients."
The late Mr. Einbinder's
wife, Sylvia, who continues to
reside in West Palm Beach's
Century Village, also attended
the recognition event.
"Meyer always believed in
staying active," Mrs. Ein-
binder said. "He gave that
message to everyone."
Mr. Einbinder applied to
become a Morse volunteer in
1985. He offered to serve four
hours each Tuesday and
Thursday in the Wellness Pro-
gram which offers special ex-
ercises for residents with
limited mobility. As weeks
went by, he also became in-
volved with helping residents
on activities, outings and
friendly visits which included
playing cards with residents.
A native of New York, Mr.
Einbinder exercised his ar-
tistic abilities in silk screen
work. Upon retirement in
1963, he and his wife moved to
West Palm Beach.
Forum Addresses Gap In
Service Delivery To Older Adults
The older adult population of
Palm Beach County is growing
by leaps and bounds! Florida
HRS population estimates in-
dicate that 25 percent of the
general population is compris-
ed of older adults ages 65 and
over; and 25 percent of this
older adult population is
Jewish. Given this exponential
growth, the social service sec-
tor must respond with ade-
quate support services to en-
sure the viability and in-
dependence of our older
adults.
Several United Way agency
executives believe that ap-
propriate and sufficient ser-
vices for our senior adults
must be a priority in Palm
Beach County. Given the
rapidly growing demand for
these services, these agency
heads believed an assessment
was imperative to discern
which services are actually be-
ing provided and where needs
are not being met.
The executive directors of
United Way agencies met in
October to facilitate this
assessment and formulate sug-
gested priorities for the con-
sideration of the Community
Service Unit Advisory Board
Neil Newstein, Executive
Director of the Jewish Family
and Children's Service, in-
itiated this forum along'witr
Sheryl Lenz of Crisis Line In
formation and Referral, and
Mary Barnes of the
Alzheimer's Disease and
Related Disorders Association
(ADRDA). Mr. Newstein's
organization is funded in part
by United Way.
The executive directors
discussed for one half day the
issue of gaps in service
delivery to older adults. With
the assistance of Sheryl Lenz;
Marcie Biddleman, Acting Ad-
ministrator for HRS District 9;

Director of the Palm Beach

tion; and Harriett "Buddie"

Force, discuss with the task force final plans for the Com-
munity Plea For Soviet Jewry to be held on Thursday, Dec.
10, 7:30 p.m., at Temple Israel, 1901 No. Flagler Drive, West
Palm Beach. Jerry Goodman, Executive Director of the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet Jewry, will be the guest speaker.
Members of the Soviet Jewry Task Force

Still Waiting
By MARTIN GILBERT
Special
to the Jewish Floridian
Among those former
Prisoners-of-Zion still refused
an exit visa is Leonid Volvov-
sky, a Hebrew teacher of
distinction (entirely self
taught) and a man of deep
religious conviction, who has
suffered considerably for his
beliefs.
Volvovsky first applied to
live in Israel in 1974, when he
was 32 years old. From that
moment, he was thrown out of
his job as a scientist and denied
any chance of continuing his
professional career. In 1980 he
was refused permission to re-
main in Moscow, and forced in-
stead to live in the city of
Gorky.
Among the accusations
levelled against Volvolvsky
after his arrest in June 1985
was that he had known both
Anatoly Sharansky and Iosif
Begun. On the third and final
day of the trial, the Judge ask-
ed Volvovsky if he wished to
seek the "pardon" of the
court. Volvovsky replied that
he would seek God's
forgiveness for the Judge, the
Public Prosecutor, and all
those who had participated in
his "groundless conviction."
Vovovsky's courage in the
courtroom, and his refusal to
denounce his wish to live in
Israel, was a part of the
courage of the whole Jewish
emigration movement. To
show solidarity with a man
many had not known, Jews
travelled from Moscow to Len-
ingrad to be present outside
the courtroom, and to support
Volvovsky's wife Mila.
Volvovsky was sentenced to
three years in labor camp for
"anti Soviet agitation and pro-
paganda." His sentence was
announced three weeks before
the Geneva Summit between
President Reagan and Chair-
man Gorbachev, and at the
time when the Soviet Foreign
Minister, Edward Shevar-
nadse, was in New York for
the 40th anniversary celebra-
tions of the United Nations.
While Volvovsky was a
Prisoner in Siberia, Mila
ought with exceptional
courage to alert all those in the
West who were concerned
with the deep injustice of his
sentence. In a powerful appeal
to the International Commit-
tee of the Red Cross in
Geneva, she reported how, in
labor camp, her husband was
"physically and spiritually ex-
hausted" and went on to ask
the Red Cross to "help him to
be united with our people, to
pray together with all Jews at
the Wailing Wall in
Jerusalem."
Mila sent this letter to the
Red Cross in November 1985.
Three months later, while her
husband was still in labor
camp, their friend Sharansky
was allowed to leave the Soviet
Union. That same day, Mila
Volvovsky sent a telegram to
Sharansky in Jerusalem:
"Your herosim Tolya gave us
strength to live during these
long years. Our happiness to-
day is endless."
At considerable risk to her
own health, Mila Volvovsky
worked indefatigably on behalf
of her imprisoned husband,
frequently making the over-
night journey by train from
Gorky to Moscow to enlist the
support of Western visitors.
She also sought to avail herself
of the rights of a prisoner's
wife to visit her husband in
labor camp at regular inter-
vals. But for 21 months,
neither Mila nor their
daughter Kira, were allowed
to see him even once. "It was a
very hard period of our life,"
Kira has written in a recent
letter to her friends in the
West.
Then, in March this year, as
part of the general release of
Jewish prisoners, Leonid
Volvovsky was allowed to
leave the labor camp and
return to Gorky. Within a
month of his return, he had ap-
plied to leave the Soviet Union
for Israel.
To the surprise of his many
friends outside Russia, Volvov-
sky was refused his exit visa
yet again. The reason now
given for his refusal was
"knowledge of State secrets."
But, wrote Kira Volvovsky in
her recent letter, "my father
has not worked in secret plants
for more than 15 years. And
we have been refused permis-
sion until 1992, another five
years."
Such was the situation this
July. Two months later, when
Kira Volvovsky reached the
age of 19, she made an in-
dependent application to leave
the Soviet Union, as many of
the children of long-term
refuseniks had begun to do. "It
is very hard for me to wait any
more," she explained in her
letter, and she added: "It is
very hard for me, because I
can't work (I don't have a job).
I want to go to Israel as quick-
ly as possible. I want to begin a
normal life. I want to study, to
work, and to see my future
children happy and free, and
born in Jerusalem."
In the second week of
November, Kira Volvovsky
soooooooooooc
was told that she could leave
the Soviet Union. All those
who know her and her parents
will be delighted by this news.
It would be an even more im-
pressive indication of the ex-
tent of real change in the
Soviet Union if Leonid and
Mila Volvovsky, who have now
been refuseniks for 13 years,
could also receive their exit
visas. What better day for
such a result, one asks, than
Dec. 7, the first day of the
Reagan-Gorbachev summit.
Cannon Shoots First
Negotiations now taking place in Jerusalem should
finalize a joint film venture between the U.S.S.R. and
Israel, the first of its kind. Russian film director George
Daniela and screenwriter Revez Gabeiadz (neither of them
Jewish) have met Cannon film magnate, Menahem Golan,
to discuss making a comedy with a Jewish subject. If suc-
cessful, shooting will begin next year, first in the U.S.S.R.
and then in Israel.

who attended were able to
study the issues confronting
the volunteer, public, and
private sectors as well as the
perspective of community
advocate.
The gaps which most direct-
ly affect service delivery are
provided, in large part, by
volunteer, non-profit agencies
and the public sector. Senior
adults a, ? increasingly depen-
dent on transportation ser-
vices, homemaking and per-
sonal care, adult day care,
respite services, live-in compa-
nions and friendly visitors.
Reasons given for gaps in
these service areas were lack
of funding, staff turnover, and
poor coordination of communi-
ty agencies with medical prac-
tice. Within the public sector,
Ms. Biddleman drew attention
to issues of abuse and vic-
timization of frail elderly. She
stated that these problems
must be eliminated by ad-
vocating on state and local
levels for appropriate protec-
tive services. Toward this end,
she believes that adequate care
for residents of Adult Con-
gregate Living Facilities
(Intermediate Care Facilities)
and nursing homes must be a
public sector priority. The lack
of sensitization of the
facilities' staffs to the aging
process and the mental health
aspects of aging demand the
public to make such issues a
priority. in addition, guardian-
ship programs are woefully in-
adequate to respond to an in-
creasing need for legal guar-
dians for the cognitively
impaired.
As the executive director of
a foundation which has funded
several grants on behalf of
senior adults, Shannon Sadler
offered a brief discussion on
how to better utilize founda-
tions to accomplish such issue-
oriented goals. To parallel
volunteer and public sector ef-
forts to close gaps in service
delivery, Ms. Sadler promoted
the idea of funding proactive
grants to replace reactive
grant-making. She also em-
phasized that community foun-
dations are not only sources
for local monies, but are often
affiliated with parent founda-
tions which open doors to
broader possibilities. The im-

of directors to advocate for
issue-oriented goals was sug-
gested as a crucial step to mak-
ing the elderly community's
needs felt by lay, professional,
and public policy makers.
Concurring with this belief
was Buddie Brenner, a com-
munity advocate who is deeply
devoted to increasing the ac-
cessibility of human and sup-
port services in Palm Beach
County. Mrs. Brenner further
impressed upon the group the
significance of utilizing board
of directors, as well as public
officials, to advocate for issue-
oriented goals such as support
services for older adults. Palm
Beach County is in the early
stages of building an in-
frastructure in which older
adult services will be an in-
tegral component. To acquire
adequate services, however,
issue-specific agencies must
not only educate their own
boards of directors, but must
also bond together to advocate
and lobby policymakers on the
local, state, and national
levels. For example, Mrs.
Brenner mentioned the Silver-
Haired Legislature, a group of
retired legislators which meets
in Tallahassee to advocate on
behalf of the older adult
population of Florida.
This workshop concluded
with a draft of recommenda-
tions to the Community Ser-
vice Unit Advisory Board. The
intent of the recommendations
is to heighten awareness of the
present inadequacy of older
adult services and to make this
issue a priority of Community
Services Unit policymakers.

Probably the most differentiating aspect of
the Jewish community of the Palm Beach
County study area (Boynton Beach to

Jewish communities, is the presence of many
persons spending only part of the year in
Palm Beach County. About 7,400 stay in the

whereas 9,200 are here for 6-7 months. The
remainder of the Jewish population, 59,600,

Key leaders of the 1988 Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County-United Jewish Ap-
peal Campaign participated recently in a
Campaign Leadership Institute at the Palm
Hotel, West Palm Beach. In addition to
worker training which stressed the art of
face-to-face solicitation, they learned about
a new incentives program for volunteer
Campaign workers.

Green Party Fractured
Over Policy On Israel
BONN (JTA) The op-
position Green Party is em-
broiled in a bitter internal con-
flict over its policy toward
Israel, which, according to
political observers here, could
result in a fatal split.
The conflict is essentially
between the moderates or
"realists" in the party's
parliamentary faction, and the
extremists, known as "fun-
damentalists." While the
Greens as a whole have always
tilted toward the Arab cause in
the Middle East, the
moderates have been more
evenhanded, drawing the
wrath of the fundamentalists
who seem totally committed to
Arab goals.
The immediate cause of the
latest crisis is a case in point.
A delegation of moderates
visited Israel last month, head-
ed by Otto Schilly, a prominent
member of the Green
Bundestag faction. The visit
was a success from Israel's
standpoint. While some
members of the delegation, in-
cluding Schilly, were critical of
certain Israeli policies, the
overall impression was a high
degree of sympathy for the
Jewish state.
Three weeks ago, the party's
leadership body condemned
the delegation for alleged
failure to accurately represent
the Green position while in
Israel, fundamentalists,
notably Juergen Reents of
Hamburg, accused Schilly and
others of expressing "racist"
and "colonialist" positions on
their tour.
Schilly and others in the
Bundestag faction wanted that
condemnation reversed. But
they failed, after an angry
debate, by a vote of 13-12. The
situation was a reversal of
three years ago, when a fun-
damentalist delegation headed
by Reents visited Israel and
was condemned by the
moderates for demonstrating
anti-Semitic bias.
The success of the fun-
damentalists in the latest con-
frontation prompted Schilly to
remark Wednesday that he
would think about its "conse-
quences." His statement pro-
mpted speculation that the
realist wing would break away
from the party.
Hubert Kleinart, the Green
"whip' in the Bundestag, said
in a radio interview Thursday
that if Schilly decided to leave,
he wouldn't be alone.
The Green Party from its in-
ception early in the decade as a
coalition of ecologists, pacifists
and anti-nuclear activists, has
projected a schizoid image
toward Jews and Israel. It has
expelled at least a dozen
members over the years for
espousing neo-Nazi ideas and
blatant anti-Semitism. But it
has regularly opposed
economic aid to Israel, main-
taining that the funds should
go to the Palestinian victims of
Israeli "aggression." The
Green Party was first elected
to the Bundestag in 1983 and
presently holds 28 seats in the
498-member body. It has re-
mained independent nationally
though on occasion entered in-
to coalitions with the larger
established party on the state
level. The most notable was an
alliance in 1985 with the Social
Democratic Party (SPD) in
Hesse.
Political observers here
believe the schism within the
party is more deeply rooted
than the row over Israel and
stems from issues far removed
from the Middle East conflict.
Nevertheless, according to the
observers, the party has never
been closer than now to break-
ing apart.
High Level Japanese Trade
Delegation In Israel
Dr. Shulman, who served as Chairman of
the Day, explains the Federation's newly
instituted Incentives Program for
volunteer Campaign workers, "Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach County Enters
The Face Age," to reward excellence in
face-to-face solicitations.
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) A
high-level Japanese trade
delegation arrived here
Wednesday (Nov. 11) for wide-
ranging talks on commercial
relations and international
economic conditions. Accor-
ding to observers, this may be
a further signal that Japan is
ending its long-standing tilt
toward compliance with the
Arab League boycott of Israel.
'The delegation, which met
with Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres Thursday morning, is
headed by Nihichiro
Hanamura, chairman of an
umbrella organization of
Japanese businesses. Israel's
ambassador to Japan, Yaacov
Cohen, who flew in from
Tokyo for the talks, noted that
this is the 15th official delega-
tion from Japan to visit Israel
since 1985.
Prior to that year there were
none. Cohen pointed out that
cultural relations between the
two countries have improved
immensely over the past two
years and predicted that trade
relations will do as well.
Israel is something of an
anomaly among Japan's
trading partners. According to
the Japanese, it is the only
country with which Japan has
an unfavorable trade balance.
Last year Japan imported
$322.4 million worth of goods
from Israel, but sold Israel on-
ly $274.6 million.
Ambassador Cohen said
Wednesday that Israel hopes
to double its exports to Japan
in the next two years.
Trade experts observe,
however, that Israel's trade
balance with Japan may not be
as impressive as the statistics
show. Two-thirds of Israel's
exports to Japan are polished
diamonds, the income from
which must be balanced
against the high cost of
Israel's purchase of rough
stones. Therefore, the net
figures may still be in Japan's
favor, the experts say.
Part of the trade in balance
may be due to the reluctance of
giant Japanese firms to do
business with Israel. Japan is
especially vulnerable to Arab
pressure, because the country
is heavily dependent upon Mid-
dle East oil. This has been said
to account for the fact that
leading Japanese automobile
manufacturers, such as Hon-
da, Toyota and Mitsubishi, do
not sell their vehicles in Israel.

Naama who is seven and a
14-year-old brother named
Guy. They spent two years in
Colorado while Shalom was
getting his Masters in
engineering. With the
Manova's I have travelled to
various kibbutzim and
moshavim meeting their
friends and getting a feel for
the life here; I have been taken
in with incredible warmth and
unbounded hospitality. The
"adoptive family" is a great
aspect of the program and a
needed relief from the intensi-
ty generated within the group.
The Israeli Forum is a group
of young volunteers whose ob-
jective is to make us love Israel
and eventually commit in some
shape or form. They are in-
credibly personable, energetic
and fun, and they interact ex-
tremely well with the group.
They come to the kibbutz often
providing stimulating
seminars and taking us on
great tiyuls (hikes). We are ac-
tually very spoiled but I am not
complaining. A few weeks ago
we had a seminar on Entebbe;
a hostage and a Major who was
involved in the penetration
related their experi ices and
answered our quesi ons. We
went to the play It \uti8. It

encounter between j'heodore
Herzl and Fraz Kafka. Saw
Bob Dylan under the stars in
Jerusalem; culturally, we are
not suffering.
With Brigadier General
YaYa as a guide, we have
toured parts of Israel that
would not otherwise be possi-
ble. Hiked through the Golan
Heights and Upper Galilee,
swam in freshwater quarries
and inhaled breathtaking
sunsets. Slept at YaYa's army
base on the border of Lebanon.
We spent Yom Kippur in Tzfat
(Safed) where the mayor took
us to different synagogues.
Although the women sit in
closets, the synagogues are
beautiful with huge open win-
dows, cool breezes and casual
atmospheres; children are free
to run around and people
wander about during the ser-
vices. Architecturally and
spirutally, Tzfat is a beautiful
town. We are meeting people
and experiencing Israel in an
extraordinary way; the other
day an Otzmanik said, "I've
been on programs where they
tell you that you're special and
important, but I think we real-
ly are a big deal here."
Life on Kibbutz Ma'abarot. I
really love it although every-
day is the same with the only
variety being in the work
schedule. One week we work
for five hours in the morning
and study for three in the
afternoon and then the next
week we study for five hours in
the morning and work for
three in the afternoon. Work-
ing in the fields is everything I
dreamed of; "I am redeeming
the land and the land is
redeeming me," (I have been
opening all my letters with this
AD Gordon quote). The sun
rises over endless fields as we
reach and pick (mangos, per-
simmons, avocadoes)
sometimes in solitude,
sometimes together laughing
and singing. Working in the
factories is nothing I could
have ever imagined. For a few
days I was filling bottles with
liquid chicken vitamins, screw-
ing on caps and boxing them.
Audrey and I were locked in a
stuffy warehouse and after we
told each other our entire life
stories and sang every song we
know with the word chicken in
it, we really went berserk. But
that was stimulating work
compared to the Bonzo
dogfood factory; for days I
stared into an endless river of
vibrating dog biscuits falling
from a metal sky. Luckily kib-
butz works on the rotation con-
cept. I also have baked bread,
planted in the garden and am
actually very content with the
work I am doing. And I must
admit, when I walk into a store
and see a bag of Bonzo or one
of our pharmaceutical pro-
ducts, I am filled with pride.
One of the most exciting ex-
periences on the kibbutz was
the night the cows escaped -
they were roaming through
our "condominiums" and it
was not a night that we will
soon forget. And although
there is a certain degree of
monotony inherent to kibbutz-
life, it only forces us to be
more imaginative.
In any case, I am having an
incredible experience and
want to thank you for sending
me.
Love,
LAURA

Jackson Sends Promised Letter Asking Syria To Extradite Nazi
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Rev. Jesse Jackson has fulfill-
ed his promise to Nazi-hunter
Beate Klarsfeld to write to
President Hafez al-Assad of
Syria, asking for the extradi-
tion to West Germany of alleg-
ed Nazi war criminal Alois
Brunner.
Jackson made the promise
earlier this month to Klarsfeld,
who for years has been seeking
to bring Brunner to trial.
The letter reportedly was
sent Wednesday night (Nov.
11) to the charge d'affaires at
the Syrian Embassy in
Washington. A copy was sent
to Jackson's friend, political
analyst Anne Lewis in
Washington, whose office
made the text available to the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
In the one-page letter,
Jackson refers to the good
relations created between
himself and the Syrian presi-
dent in 1984, when Jackson
secured the release of
American reconnaissance pilot
Robert Goodman, whose plane
was shot down by Syrian
troops in Lebanon.
At that time, Jackson writes
in the letter, Assad showed
"visionary leadership in
demonstrating that this sign
could be a first step in moving
our nations in the direction of
peace and negotiation rather
than confrontation an art of
humanity and statesmanship."
In 1984, Jackson recalls, he
and Assad "talked candidly
yet respectfully of the need for
peace and better communica-
tion in the Mideast. And we
discussed the role of the PLO
in the region and of the State
of Israel.
"I asked you to consider the
long-term benefits of a policy
of mutual recognition of a safe
and secure homeland, both for
the Palestinians and for the
Israelis, of a policy of discus-
sion and negotiation rather
than war and confrontation, all
as necessary steps toward a
permanent peace in the
region."
Within that context, Jackson
raised the issue of Brunner,
and of the interview Brunner
gave to his "home-town
paper," The Chicago Sun-
Times, on Nov. 1, in which he
said he was unrepentant for
having killed Jews and "would
do it again."
Jackson refers in his letter
to Syria's claim that Brunner
was not in that country.
"Despite denials, the reports
persist," he writes. "The
heinous acts against humanity
of the Third Reich cry out even
this day for justice.
"Wherever Mr. Brunner
seeks sanctuary, it must be
denied. Releasing him for ex-
tradition to Germany would be
the morally correct action to
take. It would send the signal
of good intentions around the
world."
Assad's help in this matter,v
notes Jackson, would be
"another opportunity to make
a difference. Please accept my
respectful request that you in-
vestigate this matter with all
due haste. I am confident that
in the name of peace and
morality you will then take the
appropriate action."

Geriatric Center opened its
doors to the aged and impaired
members of the community,"
stated Bennett Berman, Presi-
dent of the Center. "In that
short period of time, the
Center has become one of the
most well respected facilities
of its kind, providing the
highest quality of care to the
aged."
"We are deeply grateful for
the leadership and support we
have received which has
brought us to this important
day. Our community is unique
in that the majority are older
adults, many of whom need
health care services. The
Morse expansion will provide
those alternatives so
necesssary to keep people ac-
tive and living as independent-
ly as possible," concluded Mr.
Berman.
The Center's expansion will
include a nursing pavilion ac-
commodating 160 beds, an
adult day care center, a home
health agency and a short-
term rehabiliation unit.
"These new facilities will pro-
vide programs to meet a wide
range of needs among our
community's elderly," stated
Myron Roberts, Building Com-
mittee Chairman.
"Our building committee is
working diligently with our ar-
chitects, Perkins, Geddis and
Eastman to ensure the most
modem, state-of-the-art facili-
ty which will be constructed
with function, esthetics and
cost in mind," concluded Mr.
Roberts.

By SANDFORD GRUNTHER,
LCSW
Director of Student Training
Jewish Family
and Children's Service
Being a supervisor of
graduate social work students,
I am often asked, "How do I
help people?" However, the
first task of a social worker is
to form a positive cooperative
relationship with the client.
Through this relationship, the
"helping" process begins and
continues.
There are certain principles
of a relationship between
client and social worker:
1) treat the client as an in-
dividual and, as a result,
perceive him as a unique
human being with his personal
differences. Therefore, treat-
ment is on an individual basis.
Goals are worked through in-
dividual case by individual
case. 2) The client needs to be
recognized as a person of
worth and to be accepted as
such. The caseworker may
even perceive the client
negatively, but must maintain
an equal respect for them. A
client will not be helped if he
finds that the anti-social
behavior for which he is com-
ing for help with is being disap-
proved of by the social worker.
The non-judgemental attitude
in such a case should convey
that the behavior is neither
praised nor disapproved of. It
is necessary to accept the
client as a person who
deserves and needs help. But,
it is not necessary to accept his
behavior. 3) Clients need to be
able to express feelings and be
also allowed to keep secrets
about themselves. Clients need
to communicate their feelings
and thoughts and receive an
appropriate response to these
feelings. When the social
worker gives his full attention,
the client feels his interest and
understanding, and this helps
him be more at ease. Further-
more, a client will not freely
communicate unless he feels
that the information being
shared with the worker is kept
between them. Other agencies
and individuals should be con-
sulted only with the clients'
consent.
In summary, for effective
help to begin and proceed, the
social worker needs skill in the
professional interpersonal
relationship. As Felix Biestek
states in his book, The
Casework Relationship, "The
casework relationship is the
dynamic interaction of at-
titudes and emotions between
the caseworker and the client,
with the purpose of helping the
client achieve a better adjust-
ment between himself and the
environment."

Israeli Official
Claims International
Conference Dead
By YITZHAK RABI
NEW YORK (JTA) The
view of official Washington is
that the idea of an interna-
tional peace conference for the
Middle East is presently dead,
according to Moshe Katzav,
Israel's minister of labor and
social affairs.
Katzav is a member of the
Herut wing of the Likud bloc,
whose leader, Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir, opposes the
international peace conference
idea, which has been chiefly
advanced in Israel by Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres and his
Labor Party.
Katzav was in Washington
for a two-day visit that includ-
ed a meeting at the State
Department with Richard
Murphy, assistant secretary of
state for Near East and South
Asian affairs.
In an interview with the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency,
Katzav quoted Murphy as tell-
ing him that "for the time be-
ing, as far as the U.S. is con-
cerned, the idea of an interna-
tional peace conference is
dead."
Furthermore, during the re-
cent visit of Secretary of State
George Shultz to Moscow,
"the issue of an international
peace conference was not
discussed at all between Shultz
and the Soviet leadership,"
Katzav pointed out.
"An international peace con-
ference is not only useless but
also dangerous to the future of
the Mideast," Katzav
asserted. He said that if such a
conference took place, it would
surely fail, and then the Arabs'
only option would be to resort
to war with Israel.
Katzav also contended that
"all the talk about an interna-
tional peace conference" just
makes it harder to discuss any
other ideas to achieve peace,
such as the idea of direct, face-
to-face talks between Israel
and Jordan the same as it was
between Israel and Egypt
nearly 10 years ago.
Asked if he found in
Washington an indication that
America's economic troubles
and its large trade deficit will
eventually result in a sharp cut
in American aid to Israel, Kat-
zav replied: "My general im-
pression was that there is an
understanding in Washington
of Israel's economic needs and
difficulties. The issue of
America's economic problems
was mentioned, but there was
not any indication that aid to
Israel will be affected.
"My impression was, at the
end of my visit to Washington,
that all of the American com-
mitments to Israel, as far as
aid is concerned, will be
honored," he said.

Soviets: Jews May Accompany Gorbachev

a Soviet Embassy of-
indicated.
official, First Secretary
Khripunov, told this to
Lerman, education
lalist for the Greater
lington Jewish Board of
ition, and two students
a Maryland synagogue
1.
fripunov, in an interview
the Jewish Telegraphic
icy, confirmed that he an-
ites that Gorbachev will
ig along someone
thoritative on Soviet
Jewry. He suggested it might
be Samuel Zivs, a member of
the Soviet Anti-Zionist Com-
mittee, who has long maintain-
ed that Jews face no persecu-
tion in the Soviet Union.
Lerman said that Khripunov
also told her he expects Soviet
Jewish emigration will con-
tinue to increase in the coming
months. More than 6,000
Soviet Jews have been allowed
to emigrate so far in 1987.
Lerman and the two
students, Allison Gluckman
and David Altschuler, both 11,
were admitted to the embassy
after they rang its doorbell.
The youths, both from Con-
gregation B'nai Shalom in
Olney, Md., were among 300
from Washington area con-
gregational schools who par-
ticipated Sunday in a vigil for
Soviet Jewry across from the
embassy.
The three met with
Khripunov for about 10
minutes, Lerman said, and he
accepted a petition from the
students urging the Soviets to
permit Jews to emigrate.
This is one of the few times
the embassy has allowed
Jewish demonstrators inside.
The gesture comes at a time
when Soviet Jewry activists
and national Jewish leaders
are organizing a massive
demonstration in Washington,
timed to coincide with Gor-
bachev's arrival on Dec. 6 for
talks with Reagan the follow-
ing day.
Thousands of Soviet Jewry
supporters from cities across
the country are expected to
partcipate in the demonstra-
tion, which will feature ap-
pearances by such recently
released well-known
refuseniks as Ida Nudel,
Vladimir and Maria Slepak,
Yuli Edelshtein, Mikhail Khol-
miansky and Natan
Sharansky.
Demjanjuk Witness Challenges ID
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
An internationally recognized
expert on documents told a
Jerusalem court Tuesday
(Nov. 10) that a key piece of
prosecution evidence in the
war crimes trial of John Dem-
janjuk of Cleveland, accused of
operating the gas chamber at
the Treblinka death camp, was
probably not authentic.
Dr. Julius Grant, a British
chemist who recently exposed
the purported Hitler diaries as
forgeries, raised what he
thought were inconsistencies
with the Trawniki identifica-
tion card allegedly issued by
the Nazi SS to Demjanjuk.
Grant testified that the
photo on it of Demjanjuk was
not original, but had been at-
tached later. On Monday he
had said the signature on the
document was "unlikely to be
genuine."

Promoter of White Rights
Runs for the Presidency
Continued from Page 5
himself "national director"
and referring to cross burn-
ings as "illumniations."
David Duke's preoccupation
with racist ideology dates back
to his youth. At 17, he became
active in right wing extremist
groups. While attending Loui-
siana State University, he pur-
sued his avid interest in white
supremacy, anti-Semitism and
Nazi history and founded the
White Youth Alliance, a group
affiliated with the neo-Nazi
National Socialist White Peo-
ple's Party of Arlington. VA.
To protest a speech by ac-
tivist attorney William
Kunstler at Tulane University.
Duke marched wearing a Nazi
brown shirt and a swastika
armband and carrying a
placard that said "Gas the
Chicago 7." Duke described
the stunt as "guerilla theatre"
and termed it "neat."
Shortly after graduating in
1974, Duke exchanged his
swastika for a Klan robe and
founded Louisiana's Knights
of the Ku Klux Klan. As self-
appointed Wizard, he
cultivated a clean-cut, ar-
ticulate image which served
him well in promoting the Klan
and its rituals. For the first
time in Klan history, women
were accepted as equal
members. Catholics, tradi-
tionally barred, were en-
couraged to apply for
membership.
"Slick" Racism
Duke professed nonviolence
and encouraged members to
become politically active. In
1975, he received one-third of
the votes cast for a seat in the
Louisiana State Senate. His
moderate-sounding approach
to racism attracted audiences;
his relative sophistication
allowed him to couch his
bigotry in pseudo-scientific
and sociological terms. Duke
articulated his racism in a slick
manner that led journalists to
describe it as "rhinestone
racism" and "button down
terror."
In 1975, he organized the
largest Klan rally the nation
had witnessed since the 1960s
in Walker, LA. with an
estimated attendance of 2,700.
He also built up local organiza-
tions in other states including
California, Florida and Texas.
Although he publicly shunned
violence, he was convicted in
1979 of inciting to riot in con-
nection with a Klan rally in
suburban New Orleans.
In the late 1970s, his
Presbyterians
And Jews
Continued from Page 5-
of South Hills Interfaith
Ministry, the significance of
the position paper is that Jews
and Christians alike worship
the same God. He also cited a
point in the seven affirmations
of the paper that urges "a
determination by Christians to
put an end to the teaching of
contempt for the Jews."
"Every Nuremberg act had
its antecedent in church law,"
he added.
Knights sought to establish
Klan cells in military camps
and bases. After a violent
racial disturbance at Camp
Pendelton, CA. in 1976, it was
found that a group of white
Marines were members of
Duke's Knights of the KKK
and were actively recruiting
new members. In June 1979, a
large Klan unit was uncovered
at Fort Hood, TX.
Following the racial violence
at Camp Pendelton, the 18
Marines involved were
transferred. The American
Civil Liberties Union filed a
suit on behalf of the Marines,
claiming that the transfer
violated their right of
association.
The incident prompted the
Anti-Defamation League to
call for a Congressional in-
vestigation of extremist
froups operating in the United
tates military. ADL also ex-
pressed the same concern to
the Defense Department,
which, in response, organized
a number of programs for
military personnel to counter
racist activity and pro-
mulgated restrictions regar-
ding off-base participation in
Klan and other racially-
motivated rallies.
Duke's group pursued addi-
tional organizating efforts, in-
cluding the active recruitment
of high school students in a
number of cities to form a
"Klan Youth Corps." The
KKKK operated the racist
Patriotic Press in Metairie,
LA.
In 1980, Duke's days as a
Klan leader ended abruptly.
BUI Wilkinson, who had left
Duke's organization five years
earlier to form the Invisible
Empire in Louisiana, told the
press that- he had forced
Duke's resignation from the
Knights of the KKK by secret-
ly videotaping a meeting dur-
ing which Duke offered to sell
Wilkinson his membership lists
for $35,000. Duke denied the
incident but left the Klan soon
after to establish the NAAWP,
which he describes as
"primarily a white rights lobby
organization, a racialist move-
ment, mainly middle class
people."
Duke declared that the
'NAAWP is a white rights lob-
previous year but cited no ac-
tual figures.
In the same letter Duke
asserted that he had recently
attended a special six-week
university program in
Salzburg, Austria, and claimed
that he traveled through
Europe meeting "hundreds of
white activists, many of whom
are NAAWP members and
supporters." Duke boasted
that he received extensive
publicity which included
"dozens of radio and magazine
interviews" as well as speak-
ing engagements. In the
report of his trip he claimed to
have personally met and inter-
viewed Kurt Waldheim. In
reality, Duke was simply a
part of a legitimate educa-
tional group received by
Waldheim.
Duke has been receiving
steady coverage in Spotlight, a
weekly publication of Liberty
Lobby, the Washington-based
anti-Semitic propaganda ap-
paratus, in connection with
Forsyth County events and his
bid for the Presidency. The
May 25,1987 issue of Spotlight
profiled him as a serious con-
tender for the Presidency in
the paper's "Race for the
White House" series. Duke's
racist activities, including his
Klan involvement, which his
supporters contend is an asset,
were acknowledged in the pro-
file which quoted Duke sup-
porters as saying he "has the
potential of becoming the
modern-day George Wallace."
On June 9,1987, on the steps
of the Georgia State Capitol,
Duke announced tht he would
seek the 1988 Democratic
Presidential nomination.
Among those present were
Daniel Carver, Grand Dragon
of The Invisible Empire, KKK;
Sam Dickson, Duke's attorney;
Ed Fields of the White
Supremacist National States
Rights Party of Marietta, GA,
and Don Black, Duke's suc-
cessor in the KKKK.
The man Spotlight describes
as "America's most renowned
'white rights" advocate" tried
to run as a Democrat for the
Presidency in 1980 but his
campaign never materialized
due to lack of any significant
support.
Although David Duke has
faded in and out of the media's
limelight, his notoriety among
white supremacists in un-
wavering and his candidacy for
the Presidency may again
vault him into the public arena.

Summit Aided Jordan At PLO's Expense
Continued from Page 1
Hussein, ruler of a desert
kingdom with serious
economic difficulties, took the
risk of holding a summit that
may well have been a dismal
failure, and of raising such
delicate issues as an interna-
tional peace conference. Had
the gambit failed, his ability
for diplomatic maneuvering
would have been greatly
restricted.

outcome. Officially, Egypt has
been boycotted by the Arab
League since it signed its
C:e treaty with Israel in
ch 1979. But at the summit
this week, each Arab country
was given permission to renew
ties with Cairo in the name of
"recruiting all resources to ac-
complish the ends of the Arab
people."
Cairo radio welcomed on
The answer apparently lies Thursday those Arab countries
in the timing. The participants which "returned to Egypt."
at the summit not all Arab
countries attended were
clearly far more concerned
with the immediate dangers
posed by Iran in its eight-year
war with Iraq, than with their
conflict with Israel, which has
been simmering for 40 years.
The summit endorsed Hus-
sein's basic line of policy
total backing of Iraq in the
Persian Gulf war. The move
represents a sharp reversal of
position by Assad who, with
Col. Moammar Gadhafi of
Libya, is the only Arab leader
to have supported the regime
of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Kho-
meini. Assad dutifuly assented
in the condemnation of Iran.
In that context, the interna-
tional peace conference was a
far less urgent matter. The
Israel government remains
sharply divided on the issue.
Moreover, Hussein was forced
to agree that the Palestine
Liberation Organization must
So far, the only one is the small
Gulf state of Abu Dhabi, which
renewed diplomatic relations
with Egypt immediately after
the summit.
But its foreign minister,
Rashed Abdallah, said in Cairo
Thursday that other Gulf
states would soon follow suit.
He said his country's decision
was taken after consultations
with Saudi Arabia, Kuwait,
Qatar and Bahrain.
In Israel Thursday, Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres said
Hussein came out of the sum-
mit strengthened since the
other Arab countries did not
slam the peace door in his face.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir was
concerned however over sum-
mit resolutions that called for
joint action against Israel.

Nazi literature and anti-

Since forming the NAAWP,
Duke has continued to pro-

mention of a Palestinian state
in any of the resolutions
adopted at the summit, a score
in Hussein's favor.

claimed that the NAAWP had

On the other hand, the suc-

Israel's point of view, was
underlined by the fact that it
was condemned by only two
countries Iran and Libya

cant rehabilitation of Egypt in
the Arab world, without in the
least compromising Israeli-

JCC Chaverim Needs Help Of Adults Over 18
"There are many Jewish
children between the ages of 5
and 15 in our area who need a
Big Friend," says Linda
Zwickel, Vice President, Pro-
gramming of the JCC. These
children are all part of single
parent families and are in need
of one-on-one special adult
relationships. Young adults
over 18 represent a segment of
the Jewish community that
can provide the best, most
reliable, and most energetic
source of Big Friends, she
said.
A Big Friend is a volunteer
who is carefully screened, in-
terviewed, and matched with a
Little Friend who shares the
same special interests. It is ex-
pected that each Big Friend
will be prepared to give a
minimum of 2-3 hours each
week, with a year long
commitment.

Controversial Play Being Staged In Holland
By HENRIETTA BOAS
AMSTERDAM (JTA) A
controversy is boiling in
Holland over the scheduled
opening of a play by the late
Rainer Werner Fassbinder in
which one of the principal
characters, an exploiter, is
known as "the rich Jew."
Opponents of the play "Gar-
bage, the City and Death"
want it banned on grounds it is
anti-Semitic. Supporters con-
tend it is symbolic, not anti-
Semitic, and argue that a ban
would amount to censorship
and an abridgement of basic
rights guaranteed by the
Dutch constitution.
As the play's Nov. 18
premier at Rotterdam's
Lantern Theater approaches,
the lines of debate have been
drawn. On one side is virtually
the entire Jewish community
of the Netherlands, supported
by many non-Jews, including
the 40,000-member "Chris-
tians for Israel," a Protestant
organization.
The Netherlands Ashkenazi
Congregation, which is tradi-
tional, was joined this week by
the Liberal Jewish Congrega-
tion of Rotterdam and the
Anne Frank Foundation in
protests against the- play.
Earlier, objections were raised
by Stiba, the foundation for
combatting anti-Semitism, and
Cidi, the center for informa-
tion and docviinentation on
Israel, which also fights anti-
Semitism.
They lodged protests with
the Rotterdam Municipal Ex-
ecutive ard the Lantern
Theater management, so far to
no avail The municipal
authorities have tried to be
neutral, but Rotterdam's
alderman for cultural affairs
spoke out this week against
"cultural censorship."
He was promptly taken to
task by Rabbi Lody Van De
Kamp of The Hague, who
recalled that, within living
memory, the failure to exer-
cise "cultural censorship"
resulted in the murder of
millions of Jews.
Leading supporters of the
play include the Amsterdam
Theatrical Academy. A recent
graduate, Johan Doesburg, is
producing the Dutch version of
the Fassbinder play as his
graduate project. He
acknowledges the fear that the
work may "foster hatred

violence broke out.
Police quickly quelled two
minor skirmishes and declined
to make arrests. When Jewish
Defense Organization (JDO)
leader Mordechai Levy gained
access to the center's lobby, he
was promptly escorted out by
in-house security.

But Hussein did not get ex-
plicit endorsement for his
piew, which he reiterated at a

of a joint Jordanian-
Palestinian delegation.
In his address to a closed ses-
sion of the summit, King Hus-

noreover, that both countries

The religious aspect of the

tion that "foremost among"

lem). Apparently in reaction

affirmed that the PLO was the
sole legitimate representative
of the Palestinians. In secret
discussions last April, King
Hussein and Israeli Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres reach-
ed agreement that Palesti-
nians who are not official
members of the PLO would be
included in a joint Jordanian-
Palestinian delegation. This
position is also backed by the
United States. Significantly,
PLO Chairman Yasir Arafat
was the only Arab leader not
personally greeted by the King
on arrival. During the sessions
he was reportedly relegated to
the sidelines and Hussein
made it clear that the two
were stil! at odds.
In the past Syria had called
for a single unified Arab
delegation. The Soviet Union,
which had advocated participa-
tion by a separate PLO delega-
tion, has recently hinted to the
Israelis that it was prepared to
be flexible on this matter if
Israel agreed to a Soviet role
at the conference. While it was
not possible for the Amman
summit to exclude the PLO
from the peace talks, the final
declaration did not refer to the
Arab League's Fez plan of
September 1982, which had
reiterated the PLO's role as
the "sole and legitimate
f essional and volunteer leaders
of the Syracuse Jewish
Federation gathered to affirm
brotherhood. But area black
religious leaders were
noticeably absent.
The campus newspaper
criticized the Student Arro-
American Society, sponsor of
the event, for "poor taste" in
scheduling Farrakhan's speech
on the 49th anniversary of
Kristallnacht, the destruction
of hundreds of synagogues and
Jewish-owned businesses in
Germany and Austria.
Local Jewish groups reacted
to the appearance with
restrained anger. University
Hillel house director Rabbi
Milton Elefant helped stage a
demonstration outside the
Schine Center.
However, Hillel's plans for a
peaceful protest were under-
mined when it was learned
that the JDO was sending arm-
ed representatives to join the
rally. Elefant rejected the JDO
involvement.
Armed Syracuse city police,
on foot and on horseback,
some leading guard dogs, join-
ed an augmented campus force
to patrol the area. Farrakhan's
dapper and well-mannered
bodyguards were posted at
every entrance to the building.
Farrakhan, leader of the
10,000-member Chicago-based
Nation of Islam, was originally
scheduled to speak at a large
theater, but the facility's
owners cancelled following
strong local opposition to his
appearance.
Speaking before a
predominantly black audience,
he avoided reference to ac-
cusations that he has called
Judaism a "gutter religion"
and Hitler a "great man.' But,
he noted, "The press is upset
because they didn't hear me
say something that maybe
they want to print tonight...
I can easily defend every state-
ment for the Jewish communi-
ty members who are here."
He said the prophet Moham-
med "did not want the Jews to
say, 'I am better because you
were chosen by God for a du-
ty,' not to walk around like
pompous peacocks saying 'I
am God's chosen people.' You
must do the work of the chosen
in order to remain the

Controversial Play Being
Staged In Holland

against the Jewish communi-
ty," but insists this does not
justify a boycott.
Doesburg recently contend-
ed in an interview with the
Dutch Jewish weekly NIW
that the protests were unfair.
'In this play, not only Jews are
presented, but also dwarfs,
pimps and whores, but of all
these groups, only the Jews
have reacted hysterically," he
said.
Doesburg's drama teacher,
Louk Zonneveld, has stressed
that an artist must be free to
give expression to controver-
sies in society and said "we
must not allow ourselves to
evade discussion of these pro-
blems." Other supporters have
suggested that the play could
be the source of discussion of
anti-Semitism.
On Wednesday night, the
Evangelical Broadcasting Co.
allowed the Christians for
Israel organization to explain
why it objects to the play. It
also opened its telephones to
listeners. There were opinions
pro and con, with two callers
expressing anti-Semitic
feelings.
One woman claimed
Fassbinder, a West German,
was a Jew and intended his
play to be a warning to his
fellow Jews of what would hap-
pen if they did not mend their
ways. Another listener said
the world should protest the
actions of Israel, not
Fassbinder's play.
The play has a stormy
history. Its original premier on
Oct. 31, 1985 was cancelled
after members of the local
Jewish community occupied
the stage of Frankfurt's Kam-
merspiel Theater and held up
banners charging anti-
Semitism. The play was then
withdrawn by its German im-
presario after a private stag-
ing for critics.
It remained in limbo until
performed in New York last
year. That opened the way for
a scheduled tour of Holland
following a premier at the
Frascati theater in Amster-
dam. But it was dropped by
Frascati because of protests,
to be reinstated by the
Lantern Theater in
Rotterdam.
Palm Beach is offering a

Abu Nidal
Hijack No
Israeli Coup
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVTV (JTA) -
There now appears to be little
substance to claims made by
the Abu Nidal terrorist group
that it had seized an "Israeli
yacht" off the coast of the
Gaza Strip and captured eight
"Israeli passengers holding
dual nationality.
Belgian authorities have
confirmed that five of the
passengers are Belgian
citizens residing in France who
are Catholic, not Jewish. They
were identified as Emmanuel
Houtekins, 42; his wife,
Godelieve Kets; their children,
Laurent, 17, and Valerie, 16;
and Emmanuel's brother, Fer-
nand, 40.
The French government is
reportedly trying to obtain in-
formation as to the fate of Fer-
nand's girlfriend, Jacqueline
Valente, 29, and her two
children, Marie-Laure, 6, and
Virginie, 4. Valente's mother,
Brigitte, has denied in France
that her daughter is Jewish.
Meanwhile, Israeli naval
sources say the yacht may
have been seized many miles
possibly 100 or more from
the Israeli coast, perhaps as
far away as Libya.

Refusenik Ends Long Hunger Strike
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) A
Soviet Jewish refusenik ended
her 24-day hunger strike Tues-
day (Nov. 10), three days after
30 Moscow Jews held a one-
day fast to protest state-
sponsored anti-Semitism.
Anne Kholmiansky of
Moscow, 27, concluded her
marathon fast after her
father, Yakov Yerukhimovich,
provided the long-sought con-
sent to allow her to apply to
emigrate, according to the
Coalition to Free Soviet Jews.
Alan Pesky, coalition chair-
man, described the consent re-
quirement as "symptomatic of
a Soviet legal system that re-
mains arbitrary and
repressive."
Meanwhile, on Saturday,
when the Soviets celebrated
the 70th anniversary of the
Bolshevik Revolution, the 30
Moscow Jews staged their own
hunger strike.
Stephen Solender, executive
vice president of the United
Jewish Appeal-Federation of
New York, learned of the
strike Sunday during a
telephone conversation with
refusenik Aliya Zonis, whom
he met last month in Moscow.
Zonis a refusenik since 1985,
lost her job as a computer pro-
grammer when she applied for
a visa. She now works as a
cleaning woman and heads a
group of refuseniks who are
unable to emigrate because of
lack of consent by parents or
other relatives.
The group issued a declara-
( tion of "a one-day hunger
strike as a protest against
discrimination against Jews in
the Soviet Union .. We pro-
test the violations in treatment
of Jews awaiting repatriation
, to Israel. "We demand the
cessation of religious and
cultural crushing of Jews. We
demand a stop to the provoca-
tion (and) propaganda against
us in the press and on
television."
When Solender asked Zonis
of the Soviet reaction to the
declaration, she replied.
"There was no reaction.

Ms. Baum is also active in

years ago. He had served 18
months in a labor camp on a
charge of illegal weapons
possession that Soviet Jewry
activists say is false. They
have a five-month-old
daughter, Dora.
Aleksander, 37, a computer
scientist, first applied to
emigrate in 1978. Since then,
he has worked as a janitor and
has been one of Moscow's
leading Jewish activists, as
well as an unofficial Hebrew
teacher. Jews from around the
country have traveled to study
under his intensive language
instruction.
He was arrested for
"hooliganism" in 1984 during
a camping trip in Estonia, ac-
cording to the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry. He
was initially accused of
tampering with a mailbox and
trampling flowers, but his
10-day detention turned into
six months while the pro-
secutor investigated him.
Although his friends had
searched his apartment after
his arrest to ensure that
nothing the authorities would
deem suspicious was found,
the KGB claimed to have found
a pistol and ammunition. He
was sentenced to 18 months in
labor camp for illegal weapons
possession, and fined about
$120 for mailbox tampering.
During his initial detention,
Kholmiansky also staged a
long hunger strike.
Her brother-in-law, Mikhail
Kholmiansky, a former
refusenik, arrived in Israel last
summer. He will be in
Washington on Dec. 6 to par-
ticipate in the mobilization for
Soviet Jewry at the time of the
Reagan-Gorbachev summit
conference.
Bram Goldsmith of Los Angeles (left) and Gershon Kekst of
New York have been elected chairmen of the American Com-
mittee for the Weizmann Institute of Science. Both are na-
tionally prominent business leaders active in Jewish com-
munal and philanthropic life. They succeed Norman D.
Cohen, who becomes chairman emeritus.
