Path Cleared For JCCampus Development
Agreement Signed;
Building To Begin
By LORI SCHULMAN
All obstacles have been
removed to the building of the
Jewish Community Campus in
Palm Beach County. The
community anticipates that
construction on the 33-acre
site at Military Trail and 12th
Street in West Palm Beach
will begin in the near future.
On Friday, August 26th,
representatives of the Jewish
community of Palm Beach
County signed an agreement
concluding a successful closing
with Temple Beth El for the
purchase of the remaining five
acres of land on Military Trail
that unifies the 33-acres which
will constitute the JCCampus
site.
"We're all very pleased the
issue has been resolved in a
positive manner," said Alec
Engelstein, President of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County. "With the
consummation of the agree-
ment made possible by the
invaluable assistance of Rabbi
Howard Shapiro and the Palm
Beach Board of Rabbis, this
community can now success-
fully move ahead to develop
one of the finest Jewish
community campus facilities in
this country," he concluded.
The JCCampus will house
the Jewish Community
Center, Jewish Federation and
the Jewish Family and Chil-
dren's Service. Presently, the
Campus Corporation's
Building Committee is being
reactivated to review and
finalize all plans and obtain
government approvals to
begin construction. The archi-
tectural firm of Wolfberg/
Alvarez and Associates of
Miami has been retained to
design the campus.
"This campus is one of the
most critical needs in the
community," Engelstein
explained in a recent phone
interview. "We will soon be
able to provide the kind of
facilities that will serve every
Jew in the community, from
pre-schooler to senior citizen."
Gil Messing, Jewish
Community Campus General
Campaign Chairperson,
commented, "We can now
move full-speed ahead
knowing we have secured the
33-acres of land. Nothing can
stop us now from building our
campus."
He continued, "I am confi-
dent the community will
generously contribute the
funds needed to reach our
financial goal and begin
building." Currently, the
community has raised approxi-
mately half the funds neces-
sary to build the project in its
entirety.
Steve Shapiro, President of
the Jewish Community Center
of the Palm Beaches said he
couldn't be happier about the
agreement. "It's a step we've
been waiting for for a long
time. Finally, the JCCampus is
within vision," he said. "I've
been involved in this process
for over six years and it looks

dent of the Jewish Community Center; Robert
D. Rapaport, (l-r standing) Steven Shapiro,

Kaplansky, Executive Director, Jewish
Community Center; and Douglas Kleiner,
Associate Director, Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County.
This acquisition will make possible the
development of the JuU SS acres for a Jewish
Community Campus which will include a
full-service Jewish Community Center, the
Jewish Family and Children's Service and the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County.
like finally we're going to get a
spade in the ground and start
building."
Engelstein noted that the
campus will be a binding force
in the Palm Beach County
Jewish Community. It will
provide a rich Jewish environ-
ment of camaraderie and
fellowship where children,
young adults, parents and
senior citizens can congregate
for social, educational or recre-
ational activities. It will also
better serve newcomers to the
community, making it easier
for them to integrate and be
properly welcomed.
Since the agreement was
signed two weeks ago, Engel-
stein said he has received
many phone calls from
grateful young families in the
community. "Many of these
families have young children
and they call to say 'thank you'
for reaching an agreement.
They're simply ecstatic about
the prospect of finally having a
Jewish Community Campus,"
he said.

Mr. Alec Engelstein, Presi-
dent, Jewish Federation
each of you best wishes for a
healthy and happy year.
We greet the New Year 5749
with reverence and hope.
Following the fortieth anniver-
sary of the establishment of
the State of Israel, a year of
special and moving signifi-
cance and worldwide celebra-
tion, we must now turn our
thoughts solemnly inward to
balance our acts of omission
and commission during these
High Holy Days.
It is at this time that we are
not only judged, but must also
judge ourselves. We must ask
ourselves whether we have
been true to the values we
treasure most as Jews. This
question has special meaning
to us who live in a prosperous
and growing Jewish
community. We point to our
Palm Beach community with
pride and praise for its
numerous achievements and
continue to strengthen its
foundation with the Jewish
tradition that has guided our
Eeople through a turbulent
istory.
As the sound of the shofar
ushers in the New Year, we
have another opportunity to
examine our individual and
collective pasts and turn
openly toward the future. For
Soviet Jewry advocacy, this
has been an uplifting year.
Long-time Soviet Jewish
refuseniks were finally
fermitted to emigrate to
srael. Throughout the year,
the American Jewish
community rallied together to
send a strong message to the
Soviet government regarding
human rights. This message
must be sounded over and over
again in the year ahead.
This year also brought
continued anguish over the
situation in Judea and Samaria
the West Bank and Gaza.
Amid media reports of
conflict, the message of our
continuing support for Israel
must be reaffirmed.
Locally, our community has
a significant year ahead as we
raise the funds and finalize the
plans for the development of
our Jewish Community

JDC Helps Jews Celebrate
The American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC)
has completed a global opera-
tion to supply remote Jewish
communities throughout the
world with the necessary reli-
gious articles to celebrate the
Jewish High Holidays.

as well as the "Four Spices"
for the Sukkah were sent to
communities from Egypt to
Romania; from Poland to
Czechoslovakia.
Heinz Eppler, President of
JDC, in a special Rosh
Hashanah message to the
Jewish communities, said, "As
JDC is entering its 75th year
of operation, we are chal-
lenged to assess the past and
to evaluate the future. The
ever changing needs of Jewish
communities around the world
are more pressing now than
ever before. JDC is committed
to responding to these needs
and perform its humanitarian
work wherever there are Jews
who need our help."

the American Jewish
community for more than 70
years. Since 1914, JDC has

security forces have recently
uncovered Fatah cells in the
villages of Silat e-Dhahr and
Attara, in the Jenin region,

camp, the Israel Defense
Force spokesman announced.
The Jenin-region squad

that were to be used in an
explosive device.

part of the "shock forces"
which act as the operative
arms of the popular commit-
tees, the IDF statement said.
The detainees are accused of
organizing to carry out violent
investigations oi local resi-
dents whom they had

that provides teacher training
programs in Holocaust studies
around the country.
Using a variety of tech-
niques to stimulate and

ture and posed provocative
questions that elicited
animated and sometimes
emotional discussion from the
teachers.
Last year, the Jewish Feder-

Department, will provide
support in the form of books,
films, consultations and
speakers.

Stonewalling Extraditions Denied
LOS ANGELES (JTA) A
U.S. Justice Department offi-
cial has denied published
reports that Israel has stonew-
alled American requests to
extradite suspected criminals
wanted for trial in the United
States.
At the same time, the official
declined comment on whether
his department has formally
asked Israel to extradite
Robert Steven Manning, a
West Bank resident, who is
charged with participating in a
mail-bomb murder in Los
Angeles in 1980.
Roger Yochelson, senior
trial attorney in the Justice
Department's Office of Inter-
national Affairs, said in a
phone interview from Wash-
ington that since 1965, five
feople have been extradited
rom Israel to the United
States, and others have agreed
to return voluntarily.
Significantly, some of those
in the group including at
least one person holding
Israeli citizenship were
extradited after 1977, when
Israel passed a law prohibiting
the extradition of its nationals
to any other country.
According to reports in The
Jerusalem Post and the Los
Angeles Times last
month, U.S. officials were
angry that Israel has habi-
tually dragged its feet in extra-
diting suspected criminals,
despite the joint extradition
treaty signed by the two coun-
tries over 30 years ago.
In the Manning case, the
prosecuting U.S. attorney,
Nancy Wieben Stock, told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that a provisional arrest
warrant, the first step in the
extradition process, has been
sought from Israeli author-
ities.
Yochelson declined to
confirm or deny this action, or
any other matter pertaining to
the extradition.
"It is up to Israel to make
the first announcement," he
said, adding that a case usually
becomes public when the
suspect is arrested at his place
of residence.
Mailed Bombing Device
A federal grand jury has
indicted Manning, 36, and his
wife, Rochelle, 48, on charges
that they mailed a disguised
bomb device to a Los Angeles
computer firm, with the inten-
tion of killing its owner.
The package was opened by
a secretary, who was killed
instantly.
Both Mannings were
members of the Jewish
Defense League in 1980 and
allegedly concocted the bomb
scheme at the behest of
William Ross, a wealthy JDL
supporter.
The government charges
that Ross was involved in a
bitter real estate dispute with
Brenda Crouthamel, the
owner of the computer firm at
the time.
Robert Manning has also
been named as a prime suspect
in the 1985 bomb slayings of
Alex Odeh, an Arab-American
activist in Los Angeles, and
Tscherim Soobsokov, an
alleged Nazi war criminal.
Manning and his wife
emigrated to Israel in 1973,
where they hold dual Amer-
ican and Israeli citizenship.
Rochelle Manning was
arrested in June at the Los
Angeles International Airport
as she and her two children
arrived on a plane from Israel.
A trial date for Ross and the
two Mannings has been set for
Nov. 1 in the U.S. District
Court in Los Angeles.
Young business professionals enjoyed some informal networking
at the Holiday Inn at the Palm Beach Airport on Thursday,

Max Fisher Tells Jews To
Join Republican Party
AN 6ARLY BALlOT
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
NEW ORLEANS (JTA) -
Max Fisher, the dean of
Jewish Republicans, made a
personal appeal to American
Jews from the podium of the
Republican National Conven-
tion to end their traditional
support for Democratic presi-
dential candidates.
"I say to you, my fellow
American Jews, come join
with me, and with this great
(Republican) political party
which shares your values, and
which has labored steadily to
earn your trust," Fisher said.
"The Republican Party's
interests are your interests, its
goals are your goals."
Fisher, honorary chairman
of the National Jewish Repub-
lican Coalition, was one of
several representatives of
ethnic groups who addressed
the opening session of the
convention.
They were there to urge the
members of their communities
to vote for Vice President
George Bush for president this
November.
Fisher said that during his
40 years as an active Repub-
lican, he has watched the GOP
become "an inclusive party"
and "reach out to American
Jews in many ways."
"At the same time, I have
seen the Democratic Party
the party of so many of our
immigrant forbears move
away from the needs and
concerns of American Jews,"
the Detroit industrialist and
philanthropist declared.
He attacked the platform
adopted by the Democrats in
Atlanta last month for not
condemning anti-Semitism or
the U.N. resolution equating
Zionism with racism, and for
not supporting Soviet Jewry
or rejecting a Palestinian
state.
"The Republican Party will
not support an independent
Palestinian state because it is
wrong," Fisher said. "Wrong
not only for Israel, but also
wrong for America."
He said the Reagan adminis-
tration has supported Israel
because of "shared strategic
interests. For Republicans,
commitment to Israel is not a
numbers game, it is a pillar of
American foreign policy."
Golan Film Draws
Warm Reception
By MICHAEL SOLOMON
MONTREAL (JTA) A
warm ovation was given to the
premiere here of "Hannah's
War," a film about Hannah
Senesh, the young Hungarian-
born Jewish woman who was
captured and executed by
Hungarian Nazis after para-
chuting into wartime Eastern
Europe to try to save the lives
of downed British airmen.
About 1,500 spectators
attended the screening at this
year's Montreal International
Film Festival. They gave a
loud applause to the film's
writer and director, Israeli-
American producer Menahem
Golan, who said he repre-
sented not only the United
States but the Israeli film
industry as well.
The two-and-a-half-hour film
depicts the life and death-by-
execution of Senesh, the
Budapest native who
emigrated to Palestine at the
age of 17, and who at the age
of 22 was sent on a mission by
the British Royal Air Force to
help British airmen escape out
of occupied Europe.
Together with other Jewish
volunteers from Palestine,
Senesh managed to evade Nazi
troops in occupied Yugoslavia
and re-enter Hungary, where
her mother, Catherine, had
avoided deportation.
Senesh was unaware of her
mother's disposition at the
time she smuggled herself
back to Hungary. She had a
personal dream of somehow
saving her mother and other
Jews to escape the Nazis.
In the film, Hanna is port-
rayed by Dutch actress
Maruschka Detmers. Amer-
ican actress Ellen Burstyn
plays Hanna's mother. Other
members of the cast include
British actors David Warner,
Donald Pleasence and
Anthony Andrews.
In an interview with the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency,
Golan, whose Cannon Films is
based in Los Angeles, said that
the Israeli media gave positive
marks to his movie. He said
the film remains "90 percent
true to fact."
Golan said he refrained from
depicting Senesh with her
teeth missing after the torture
and beatings she received in
prison in Budapest. He said he
felt the audiences would have
recoiled from such vivid
portrayal, although biogra-
phies of Senesh include this
detail.

Two Mideast Experts Agree War With Syria Probable
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Two
Israeli experts on the Middle
East, speaking at a public
meeting here, have come to
the conclusion that Syria is
preparing for an eventual
confrontation with Israel.
Brig. Gen. (Res.) Aharon
Levran, editor of Middle East
Military Balance, a publica-
tion of the Jaffee Center for
Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv
University, and Dr. Yossi
Olmert, head of the Syrian and
Lebanese desk at the univer-
sity's Dayan Center for Middle
East and African Studies, both
estimated that although the
chances of a Syrian-initiated
war with Israel in the near
future is slight, Syria is none-
theless bent on some stage of
war with the Jewish state in
the future.
Levran, a former deputy
commander at the National
Defense College, said that the
Syrians "are doing everything
to prepare themselves for war,
but I would risk saying that I
doubt they will initiate a war
with Israel so long as they are
alone and without an Arab
coalition partner, particularly
Iraq and Jordan."
He said that "while Syria is
not planning to embark on a
premeditated war with Israel
in the short term, this does not
mean that a circumstantial
war cannot occur between
Israel and Syria."
Levran pointed out several
"friction points" in
Lebanon, in regard to Syria's
support for terrorism, and in
the Golan Heights.
In fact, while leaders of the
mainstream Palestine Libera-
tion Organization were
meeting at their headquarters
in Tunis to consider plans to
establish a Palestinian state in
the West Bank and Gaza, the
Syrian press was dismissing
such an attempt as "a big
conspiracy against the Pales-
tinian cause' because such a
move would lead to a recogni-
tion of Israel.
Arafat Backers Tossed Out
Syria and its Palestinian
allies have systematically
thrown adherents of PLO
leader Yasir Arafat out of
their Lebanese enclaves. The
guerrilla alliance opposed to
Arafat is based in Damascus.
Olmert told questioners
during the question-and-
answer session that "Syria
would prefer quiet in the area
until the upcoming Lebanese
elections, so as not to give
Israel an excuse to intervene
in them."
Levran voiced concern over
Syria's possible deployment
for a future war, because Syria
has made numerous improve-
ments in the sphere of conven-
tional warfare, he said, partic-
ularly in enhancing its ground-
to-air forces.
Levran added, however, that
Damascus has yet to draw
even with Israel's military
strength. He noted that
Syria's decision to equip its
Scud surface-to-surface
missiles with chemical
warheads was prompted by
the Syrian air force's inability
to contend with the Israeli air
force.
Levran said the Syrians
have emphasized unconven-
tional means of warfare
because "they know that
Israel is much more advanced
in nuclear potential.

Children of Nazis Gain Dutch Aid
By HENRIETTA BOAS
AMSTERDAM (JTA) The Netherlands Ministry of Social
Welfare has awarded a modest subsidy to a group that deals with
the special psychological needs of children of former Dutch
Nazis.
The ministry granted the funds to the Herkenning ("recogni-
tion") organization, which claims the offspring of Nazis suffer
psychological problems because they are seen by others as the
children of traitors.
The money will be used to train professional psychotherapists
to help these people cope with their specific problem. These
children will not, however, qualify as first- or second-generation
victims, as do such children of Nazi victims, who are in certain
cases entitled to permanent or temporary government benefits.
The director of the Jewish mental health foundation here has
stated that he does not object to this subsidy.
Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor:
Having completed the
course "Wisdom of the Body"
conducted by Mrs. Gertrude
Friedman at the Jewish
Community Center, I was so
impressed with the informa-
tion that was made available to
us that I decided to let others
know my feelings. Our
instructor, Gert (as we call
her) was outstanding. She has
an exceptional knowledge of
the subject and is aware of the
remarkable advances being
made in the fields of medicine
and nutrition. She has the
ability to make a difficult
subject understandable. That
ability is the essence of a good
teacher.
All of the students, being
Senior Citizens, were hungry
for the information on the
subject. We all expressed a
desire for a healthy life. It is
through courses such as the
Community College is spon-
sonng at the Jewish
Community Center that we
can learn what we should do.
My wife and I have enrolled
for the new course starting
August 10 on "Medicine in the
Next Century." I am certain
that this, too, will be an
enlightening experience.
We wish to thank the Jewish
Community Center for
'providing such courses lor

Israel NeWSbriefs 'Israelis/Palestinians MustNegotiate'
Finland To Sell Oil To Israel
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Finland may soon begin selling
excess Soviet oil to Israel, according to a report in the
Israeli daily Haaretz.
According to the paper, an agreement to this effect has
already been signed between the two countries, though the
subject is being blacked out by both sides due to the
sensitivities involved.
Israel's Energy Minister Moshe Shahal visited Finland
last year and met with his Finnish counterpart in order to
discuss the issue.
The paper wrote that a commercial agreement has now
been signed between Finland and the Soviet Union, by
which Finland will obtain 4.5 million tons of Soviet oil in
excess of its own needs. The USSR will in turn permit the
Finns to sell the excess oil on the free market.
Fires Destroyed 37,500 Acres
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Since the beginning of April, there
have been 1,400 fires in Israel that have destroyed 2,500
acres of planted forests, more than 10,000 acres of natural
forest and 25,000 acres of grazing land and uncultivated
fields.
According to the Jewish National Fund, there has been a
decline in such incidents in recent weeks. However, last
week there were 23 fires that destroyed 250 acres of
natural forest land across Israel.
Squad to Erase Abusive Graffiti
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The Tel Aviv municipality has set up
an "intifada commando" team to erase as quickly as
possible vituperative graffiti scribbled around the city.
Meir Doron, the municipality's deputy director-general,
said that the team had removed 60 abusive slogans such as
"slaughter the Jews."
Two Synagogues Uncovered
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Two synagogues from the Talmudic
period have been uncovered in the southern Hebron Hills
region.
One of the ancient synagogues was found at Tel Maon,
between Carmel and Susiya, and the other at the Anim
ruins, located in the Yatir Forest.
The recently completed excavations were a joint project
of the Kfar Etzion Field School in Maon; the West Bank
civil administrations archeology staff officer; the Educa-
tion Ministry's Antiques and Museums Department; and
the Jewish National Fund.
Shivia Ready For Nuclear Plant
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) A 10-year, $10 million study
conducted by the Israel Electric Company has determined
that Shivia, located in the Northern Negev, is suitable for
the establishment of Israel's first nuclear power station.
The report said that the area is ready once the decision is
made for such a project.

Top Arab Official Speaks At Temple
By LORI SCHULMAN
To achieve peace, the Israeli
government and Palestinian
leadership must negotiate
their positions, according to
Muhamed Massarwa, Israel's
consul general in Atlanta and
the highest ranking Arab in
the Israeli government.
During a recent visit to West
Palm Beach, Massarwa met
with the local press and
answered congregants' ques-
tions in a roundtable discus-
sion following Friday night
services at Temple Judea.
In a discussion on the
November Israeli elections,
the proposed two state solu-
tion to the Palestinian upris-
ings, Hussein's recent West
Bank divestiture and the issue
of Israel's safety, Massarwa
expressed the views of "one
who is on top of a mountain
and can see clown all sides."
"I can see and understand
the Israelis concerns and fears
for their safety," he began,
"but I can also see the Pales-
tinian's suffering. There are
many angles to this conflict."
According to Massarwa, the
Middle East has reached a
crossroads in the conflict
between Arab and Jew. New
voices are being heard in the
Palestinian leadership,
partially as a result of
Hussein's recent divestiture
from the West Bank, he said,
and the Israeli elections will be
most critical for the future of
the state as well as the region.
"This gives the Israeli govern-
ment and the Palestinians
even more responsibility to
decide their own fate,"
Massarwa projected. "Now
more than ever there exists an
opportunity for dialogue
between the two."
A Palestinian, Mr.
Massarwa holds a law degree
from Hebrew University in
Jerusalem, where he served as
Secretary of the Arab
Students Association. He
currently works with both
Arab and Jewish clientele in
Hadera, Israel. He said he
feels comfortable among both
and mentioned that during his
recent visit to Israel, he visited
areas of the West Bank.
When asked to comment
about the recent focus on
Israel's safety, Massarwa
replied, "American Jews must
Among his wide activities in
the Israeli political and social
sphere, he served as a legal
advisor in the Arab
Chairman's Association of
local municipalities and as
head of the Advisory Council
to the Ministry of Labor in
Israel.
Massarwa has been Israel's
consul general for the South-
eastern Region since 1987.
Educated in Israeli public
schools, the 46-year-old Arab
ran as number six in Ezer
Cheryl Plotkin of Temple Judea and Rabbi Joel Levine, spiritual
leader of Temple Judea, flank Mohamed Massarwa, Israel's
consul general in Atlanta and the highest ranking Arab in the
Israeli government, during his recent visit to West Palm Beach.
demonstrate their support for Weizman's party during the
Israel by visiting and involving
themselves in Israeli life now.
It's very safe to be there,
there's absolutely no danger."
He also discussed his feel-
ings about the media coverage
the Palestinian "intifada" has
received in the United States.
"It was much easier to sympa-
thize with Israel when they
were perceived as the
victims, he said. "But now
the Palestinians look like
David and the Israelis like
Goliath. I don't believe the
media coverage is balanced,"
he continued. "It just shows
the news in the territories and
not the balance of the whole
situation."
last elections to the Israeli
Parliament (Knesset) before
joining the Foreign Service.
Massarwa lives in Atlanta with
his wife, Kitam, and their
three sons.
When asked to comment on
his appointment, Massarwa
said, "I'm both an Arab and an
Israeli. I've more or less
fulfilled my aspirations in the
Arab sphere. We, of the
younger generation of Israeli
Arabs have been demanding,
for some time now, that we be
given opportunities for full
integration into all aspects of
Israel. I see my appointment in
the Foreign Service as just
such an opportunity."

Israel's Honey Industry
By D'VORA BEN SHAUL
(WZPS) When the spies
that were sent into Canaan
returned to base, they spoke of
a land flowing with milk and
honey. This sweet
throughout most of mankind's
history the only sweet avai-
lable aside from fruits has
always been treasured.
Modern Israeli beekeepers are
finding that despite alterna-
tive sugars and diet conscious
populations, honey still
remains highly popular with
local consumers and as an
export item.
Although a good part of the
2,000 tons of honey exported
from Israel each year is
produced by the large apiaries
of kibbutzim, there are also a
large number of private
apiaries, ranging from small
enterprises of a dozen hives or
so to those with hundreds of
hives. Israeli Arabs and resi-
dents of the administered
territories are among some of
the most successful of the
private beekeepers but it took
them a while to accept that, in
Israel, all hives have to be
licensed.
The licensing is required in
order to make sure that one
apiast does not graze his or her
(many good beekeepers are
women) bees on another's
"pasture" and to allow for
veterinary inspection of hives.
Bee diseases are taken seri-
ously and hives may not be
moved from one area to
another until certified as
healthy.
But honey itself is only one
bee product produced for local
consumption and for export.
One of the most expensive side
products of the hive is Royal
Jelly, a material secreted by
juvenile female bees and used
to feed the queen throughout
her life. This jelly is highly
prized as a food and as a
cosmetic additive.
Pollen from wild flowers is
also collected from the hives
and sold in health food stores
as a protein supplement for
vegetarians and, of course, the
wax from the honeycombs is in
high demand both for making
honeycomb bases and for supe-
rior candles. One of the most
interesting hive products is
prophylis, a black tarry wax
secreted by bees and used as a
calking material in the hive.
This material is used by
homeopaths and naturopaths
since it has a strong germicidal
and mild antibiotic action.
For many apiasts, however,
pollination is where the real
business is. There are a
number of crops, particularly
citrus, cucumber, melon,
alfalfa and clover, that must be
pollinated by bees. Every year
in spring and autumn, as
Israel's two growing seasons
approach, thousands of hives
are hired for pollination and
beekeepers all over the
country are besieged with calls
from kibbutzim, moshavim and
private planters.
Sometimes, if a hive is not
immediately available, a
farmer may have to delay
planting for a couple weeks in
order to be assured that his
crops will be properly pollin-
ated when they blossom.
Israeli honey comes in a
variety of flavors and honey
lovers are selective about
which kind they want. Conse-
quently some expert apiasts
specialize. There is wildflower
honey from the hills of the
Galilee, and the earthy after-
taste and scent of a summer
field; eucalyptus honey,
starkly pale and lightly tangy;
carob honey, dark and full
bodied; wild herbal honey from
the oregano plants in the Jeru-
salem hills that is prized by
herbalists; and, from the
coastal plain, orange blossom
honey, an all time favorite,
with the lingering scent of an
orange grove in bloom.
Most bees kept in Israel are
of the Italian strain and all
beekeepers invest regularly in
artificially inseminated queens
to ensure the purity oi their
stock. The Italian strain is
valued because it is a good
honey producer yet mild
mannered and not inclined to
mount an attack. There is no
point in allowing a pure bred
queen to make a mating flight
because the local wild bees are

Deportations Will Continue
I
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir, in an
interview on Israel Radio, said
there is no tension between
Washington and Jerusalem,
but that the deportation of
Palestinian and "intifada"
leaders will continue despite
the strong protest from the
United States.
"We are responsible for
security in the area, not the
Americans," he said.
The premier, who noted that
differences of opinion between
friends are natural, denied
that the deportation of Pales-
tinians was a "policy," saying
it was necessary to maintain
Israel's security and order in
the territories.
Shamir and Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin both
told U.S. Ambassador Thomas
Pickering that the deporta-
tions orders already issued
against 25 Palestinian leaders
will be carried out, after the
men have had an opportunity
to appeal to the Supreme
Court.

EC Commissioner Warns Israel On Blocking Trade
By YOSSI LEMPKOWICZ
BRUSSELS (JTA) An
Israeli threat to block some
Palestinian agriculture
exports to the European
Community would be a
"serious incident," the Euro-
pean commissioner in charge
of Mediterranean policy,
Claude Cheysson, warned
here.
Cheysson reacted to a state-
ment made earlier this week
by the Israeli Agriculture
Minister, Arieh Nahamkin,
who advised that Israel would
prevent the export of agricul-
ture products to the EC and
Jordan from Palestinians who
are collaborating with
elements hostile to Israel.
"If the Israeli government
would hinder a Palestinian
export contract drawn up in
due form with the European
Community, it would be a
serious incident," Cheysson
said.
He added, however, that
Nahamkin's declarations don't
worry him as they are perhaps
linked to the electoral climate
in Israel.
Israel agreed earlier this
year to let the Palestinians in
the West Bank and Gaza
export their farm produce
directly to the EC market
without any interference by
Israel's marketing govern-
ment companies.
Last month, for the first
time. Palestinian farmers from
the Gaza Strip concluded
contracts directly with Euro-
pean importers. The Gaza agri-
cultural products, mainly
citrus fruits, are to be shipped
to Europe in October.
According to EC sources in
Brussels, any attempt by
Israel to block Palestinian
exports to the EC would be
considered a serious blow to
EC-Israel relations, in view of
the fact that the European
Parliament in Strasbourg has
yet to give its blessing to three
EC-Israel trade and financial
protocols.

Hadassah Delegates Take Stand On Issues
Friday, September 9, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 9
CHICAGO Almost 2,000
delegates to the Hadassah
National Convention here
approved a series of major
policy statements on issues
ranging from U.S.-Israel rela-
tions to AIDS.
The delegates adopted a
statement praising "the deep-
ening bonds between the
United States and Israel,"
adding that, "we firmly
believe that the best interests
of the United States are
served by its close alliance
with and support of the State
of Israel.
"We believe that the height-
ened measure of cooperation
between the United States and
Israel will enhance the cause of
Middle East peace and
regional stability. The state-
ment supporting Israel's
efforts to resolve the conflict
in the administered territories,
noting that "The failure of the
Arab States, except for Egypt,
to respond to Israel's repeated
offers to negotiate is the major
obstacle to peaceful resolution
of the Palestinian Arab
problem."
The delegates reaffirm
Hadassah's support of the
Jews of the Soviet Union and
the Jackson-Janik Amendment
which links American econ-
omic and trade policy toward
the U.S.S.R. with Soviet
emigration policy. A separate
statement endorses the posi-
tion of the Jewish Agency

secure direct flights from the
Soviet Union to Israel for
Soviet Jews. ..."

The statement also advo-

persons with AIDS" and the
cost of treating the disease.
The statement commits
Hadassah members to "urge

Random Thoughts
By MURIEL LEVITT
Eons ago, when I was a girl,
it was the custom to receive a
brand new outfit before Rosh
Hashanah. This was very
important because all the teen-
agers used to hang out on the
steps in front of Young Israel
on Kingsbridge Road in the
Bronx. You watched your
peers going in and out of shul
and what you wore became of
prime interest to all. Sure, you
went in and sat beside your
parents. And sure, you read
from the prayer book, but
being very young, you had to
do it in style. This was the
holiday of the year, and a new
dress was mandatory.
So when the time came to
search for that new outfit, it
was a major project. I would
climb the long flight of stairs
up to the Jerome Avenue train
and take the express down-
town. My destination was
Fourteenth Street and my
mecca of fashion was S. Klein
on the Square. This store was
such an established New York
institution that there was even
an entrance right in the
subway station. You got off
the train, walked a few steps,
and there was the doorway to
happiness.
If you have ever shopped
Klein's, it needs no explana-
tion. For those of you who
don't know what I'm talking
about, I'll try to paint a word
picture. It was a four story
building crammed full of
departments, counters, cases
and racks. Dresses, coats,
suits, blouses and skirts were
all over the place. The basic
attraction was a huge variety
of current designs at rock
bottom prices. Truly, the
values were astounding, even
for that day and age.
You saw classy midtown
ladies and reed thin models
rubbing shoulders with house-
wives and working girls. They
all came for bargains and
prowled through the store
while foraging through sale
tables like predatory animals.
Before any Jewish holiday,
and especially Rosh Hashanah,
the women came from every
borough looking to augment
their temple going wardrobes.
I was no exception.
There were no individual
dressing rooms. As many
women as fire regulations
would allow were squeezed
into a large area all at the
same time. Privacy was a
luxury we couldn't afford
during depression days.
Well, there I was with the
magnificent sum of ten dollars
in my purse. For that amount I
carefully selected three (count
'em, three) dresses. Three
bucks or even less might buy
something I could wear
proudly to Temple. I brought
the dresses home, my mother
inspected them, and then
selected the one I might keep.
The other two would be
brought back and the money
returned. Klein's refund policy
was very liberal so this posed
no problem. Shopping there
was great and all my Jewish
friends in the Bronx made
frequent trips there because of
the exceptional values to be
found.
Once I had my pretty dress,
it was then time to shop for
matching shoes. Although they
had to complement my Rosh
Hashanah outfit, they also had
to be durable enough for all
season wear. I did not frequent
Miles or Kitty Kelly where
shoes were $2.98 but instead
went to A.S. Beck, where
$3.98 bought class and quality.
When funds were free, I often
lucked out and got a coordin-
ated handbag too.
And who could go to temple
without silk stockings!
bought irregulars locally at
three pairs for one dollar. No
nylons ever felt so elegant or
so sophisticated.
That was how, dear reader, a
holiday wardrobe was
collected during the lean
years. Money was scarce and
luxuries were few, but we had
other things to compensate.
We were surrounded by love,
affection and Jewish family
togetherness. Today I realize
that something, somewhere
must have been forfeited so
that I could have the delight of
a new Rosh Hashanah outfit.
How can I measure all this in
dollars and cents? It simply is
not possible. I can only hope
that in giving and sharing my
Jewish family ethics, my chil-
dren will always know how
much they are wanted and
loved. And in the midst of so
much plenty, I often long for
the simpler days when a trip to
Klein's and a three dollar dress
left me so excited and happy. I
recall the sunny days standing
with my friends in front of
Young Israel and hearing the
beautiful music emerging from
within, welcoming the New
Year and offering blessings to
all.
Those days are long gone,
but the warmth and pleasure
are sure to remain with me
forever. And, come to think of
it, that is purely wonderful!
I wish all my readers a
Happy, Healthy, and produc-
tive New Year. May you and
yours be blessed with the joy of
peace and contentment.

Rosh Hashanah Message Temple Torah
A young boy wrote Rabbi
Sidney Greenberg a letter of
appreciation after his class
visited the Synagogue. Rabbi,
"I loved my visit to the Syna-
gogue, especially the "internal
light." What rare theological
insight this boy happened
upon.
Within all of us is an internal
light. Deep within the ranting
and raving of our mind, lies a
still quiet voice. It is the locale
of the divine. Its presence is
within all of us. We need only
quiet the shrieks of our egos
and we will perceive a deep
abiding center of peace.
These High Holy Days give
us an opportunity to seek the
eternal as HE really is. May I
be so bold to suggest to you a
new way of looking at the old.
G-d never forgives you,
because He never condemns
you. For too long in our reli-
gious history we have been
bogged down with a punishing
wrathful G-d. Perhaps it's time
to understand this G-d of love,
who gave us this gift as our
natural inheritance.
We are approaching this
season of the New Year. Let's
indeed make it new by chang-
ing our minds about the
old. G-d is a G-d of love, not of
fear. We are entering into the
Season of Prayer, Repentance,
and Charity. Let's re-define
their impact upon our soul.
If a loving G-d created us,
could our essence be anything
other than love? If G-d
extended His love to us is then
not our function to extend it to
another?
The one prayer that will be
answered is forgiveness. We
literally must prdy for help to
forgive ourselves for all that
we create in our mind that
does not mirror love. All of us
create our heaven or hell. It's
within our thought system to
visit them daily. To let go of
our fear thoughts is literally
our function for behind all
these negatives could only be
our essence, G-d's gift of love.
For this holiday, to make it
different, pray with all your
heart the prayer of forgiveness
or to let go of all the negative
thoughts in your head. Repen-
tance or change will come
automatically. When you let
go, you will feel change. It will
be reflected in a smile that will
look as good as it feels. You
will walk with greater inner
peace and know the exact loca-
tion where happiness always
is.
Rabbi Richard K. Rocklin
Charity is not giving some-
thing away and losing, it's
giving away in order to have.
The giving away of your love is
your guarantee of having it.
Love freely given has equal
effect upon the receiver and
the giver. You never lose, only
gain.
Let's make this Holiday
different by looking at
ourselves differently. You are
a,wonderful creation for a
loving G-d and when you know
what you indeed are, your
whole inner being will reflect
this joy. May I suggest an
exercise while in the Syna-
gogue. Sit quietly, hold the
Machzar and free your mind.
Attempt to quiet yourself by

not allowing any thoughts to
enter. Do not think, be still.
Sink into that deep quiet peace
within. The word ego means
ease G-d out. Quiet your mind
and you will allow Him in, for
the peace of that internal light
is within you always. Happy
New Year. It can be yours.

Page 12 The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County/Friday, September 9, 1988
The Jewish Community Center
isnt a building. It's people!
Many of northern Palm Beach
County's 80,000 Jewish residents
may not be aware or have for-
gotten this important truth. Many
of you have not joined or have
delayed your membership in the
JCC on the grounds that the
present facilities don't adequately
provide all of the services
expected of a modern JCC.
Your arguments are valid. The
claim is accurate. Surely a
larger, modern, shiny, new JCC
can and will offer more services
than a small one. But look at the
opposite page and consider the
remarkable number of commun-
ity services and activities offered
today by our small JCC.
A preschool program, extended
day-care program, parent/toddler
program, after-school care pro-
gram, vacation and no-school
holiday program, children's
theatre program, teen program,
young couples program, older
couples program, single parent
program, adult acting program,
basketball, baseball, tennis,
bowling and swimming pro-
grams. For older citizens there's
a kosher meal program, public
speaking program, current events
program, dining and dancing
program, health care program,
and tour program to museums
and places of interest in and out
of the immediate area. And more!
THE JCC IS DEDICATED
AND CARING PEOPLE
The Jewish Community Center
is the only Jewish agency that
brings together the experience of
Jewish life, education, culture,
recreation, and social services
for the entire Jewish community.
No matter the affiliation, ortho-
dox to non-affiliated, the JCC
plays a very significant role in
enriching and preserving the
Jewish community for the entire
life of a person, from the
youngest of age to the oldest.
How many agencies can make
this claim?
Obviously, it is not the physi-
cal structure which makes the
JCC successful, but the dedi-
cated people responsible for
creating and producing the servi-
ces housed in the structure. Ours
is a professionally trained, dedi-
cated and caring JCC staff, sec-
ond to none. Their output has
consistently surpassed our expec-
tations with an end product of
the highest quality. And all of
this has been accomplished with-
out the shiny new building.
THE YEARS HAVE BEEN
DIFFICULT, BUT REWARDING
No one can say that it's been
easy. Unique challenges to
community centers like ours lo-
cated in small, fast growing re-
gions are: lack of community
support, because so many resi-
dents consider some other place
home, and the continual search
for operational dollars and
increased memberships.
Consequently, although
the JCC should be a
primary resource for
promoting unity
within the Jewish
community, we have
not been as successful
in this endeaver as we
would have liked.
However, the times they are a
changin! We have dealt with and
will continue to deal with chal-
lenges as they arise. Problems
did not prevent us from a banner
camp season with 500 young
people enjoying summer pro-
grams at Camp Shalom. They
did not prevent us from having
the highest enrollment in our
Preschool where we serviced
over 250 children, and they
didn't prevent us from serving
57,776 meals to seniors through
our meals program. In fact, de-
spite many obstacles, we have
expanded our services to
members and now provide exten-
sive JCC programming in 10
separate locations.
But as the city grows and the
Jewish community expands and
diversifies, our role as a JCC
becomes more critical, as does
your role as a Jew. For each of
us has a vested interest in the
ability of the community to pro-
vide an environment which will
nurture our ties to our
heritage and help us to
better understand our
culture. A supported
Jewish Community
Center affords us
this environment.
STEVEN SHAPIRO
President
The Jewish Community Center
is not a building: it's you and
the other Jews of Palm Beach
County who recognize their
responsibility to insure the conti-
nued success of the agency as we
enter the future.
THE FUTURE HAS ARRIVED
We will soon break ground for
our shiny new building on the
Military Trail Campus site.
Then, undoubtedly, when it is
shiny and new, you'll want to
become a member. As the presi-
dent of the JCC of the Palm
Beaches, I urge you not to wait
to take out a membership. We
need your support now! Think of
the good this JCC has accom-
plished in the last 13 years and
of how, despite overwhelming
odds, it strives to fulfill its
responsibilities to the Jewish
community. Don't wait. Get
involved with the JCC today!
I hope this appeal has moved
you and that you will show your
support by taking out a member-
ship. Fill out and return the
membership blank on the oppo-
site page along with your check.
Do it today. Show our commun-
ity that we 're united in purpose.
Show the county that we are one
in our dedication to excellence.
Show all Jewish communities
nation-wide that we too care,
that we too support our JCC.
Thank You!

Shalom from Kaplansky
STEVEN KAPLANSKY
Executive Director
Jewish Community Center
of the Palm Beaches
We are all overjoyed with the gift we have just received;
a final decision that our new Center will be built on Military
Trail and 12th Street. What gift could be nicer as we em-
bark on our 13th year of service to the community? Sym-
bolically, on our Bar Mitzvah year, we have matured and
resolved our major differences. Once again we are united
in our dedication to building a strong Jewish Community.
Once again we move forward with our plans to build the Jew-
ish Community Campus on which will reside our magnif-
icent, new Jewish Community Center of the Palm Beaches.
As you may know, the JCC is a beneficiary agency of the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County. We work closely
with other major county Jewish agencies: Jewish Family and
Children's Service, Jewish Community and Day School, and
the Morse Geriatric Center. All of us, together with the Jew-
ish Community Campus Corporation, will soon finalize plans
- and the pouring of concrete will begin; the new, shiny buil-
dings will rise.
The time has come! The time is now! Now is the time for
you to join the JCC and its dedicated Board of Directors and
staff. Now is the time to participate in programs and join
committees. Now is the time to get involved. The Jewish
Community Center of the Palm Beaches has come of age.
Join us now!

TOVAH FELDSHUH: ON UNIQUENESS
One of the great
motivating forces in my life
is uniqueness. As an actress
uniqueness is important,
because acting is more than
just role-playing. It
requires being able to
expose a quality that is
uniquely you.
In other areas of my life,
I look for uniqueness. Even
in my decaffeinated coffee.
Sanka- Brand Decaffeinated
Coffee is unique, because
it's the only leading.
national brand that is
naturally decaffeinated with
pure mountain water and
nature's own sparkling
effervescence. So, not only
is Sanka* smooth-tasting.
(k) KOSHER
but it addresses my concerns
about caffeine and food that
is naturally processed.
All of us have the
potential to be unique. All
we need is to experience that
part of us that's different
and enjoyable. For me, it
can be a challenging role in
a new play, or something as
simple as relaxing with a cup
of Sanka? Uniqueness...
there are so ^m
many ways to \^B

Attorney Plans
Cain 'Trial"
ROME (JTA) With the
participation of legal experts,
biblical scholars, specialized
historians and even a rabbi,
Venice lawyer Domenico
Carponi Schittar plans to
stage a trial Dec. 18, to deter-
mine whether biblical villain
Cain was really guilty of
murdering his brother Abel.
Cain, whose crime is
recounted in the Old Testa-
ment book of Genesis, has
become with the millennia a
symbol of violence and evil.
In the trial, Cain will symbol-
ically be the defendant.
Experts will try to reconstruct
what is probably the world's
most famous murder, and will
discuss the possibilities of
what may or may not have
really happened.
Participants are expected to
include various magistrates,
an expert in ancient Semitic
languages, biblical scholars
and historians and Rome
Rabbi Riccardo Di Segni.
Carponi Schittar said one of
the aims of the trial is to
promote studies on the early
chapters of Genesis.

Sweetening The New Year- With Good Food
By NAOMI ARBIT
Each Jewish holiday has its
own characteristics and its
own traditional foods. In the
celebration in the home, there
are many foods which are
important because of what
they symbolize.
At Rosh Hashanah, the
traditional braided Shabbat
challah loaf is baked in a round
form and is dotted with
raisins. This challah, along
with slices of apple, are dipped
in honey, symbolizing the
hopes for a full, wholesome
and sweet New Year.
CHALLAH
(New, quicker method;
produces fail-proof loaf in 90
minutes)
4 1/2 cups bread flour
2 packages quick rise yeast
(Instant Blend Dry Yeast)
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup water
2 tablespoons oil
3 eggs, slightly beaten;
reserve 1 tablespoon for glaze
1/4 cup white raisins
Combine 2 cups flour, yeast,
sugar, and salt in large bowl of
an electric mixer; beat with
dough hook if available.
Heat water to a temperature
of 120 degrees; add to flour
mixture. Add eggs and beat at
high speed for three minutes.
Stir in 2 1/2 cups flour and the
raisins, mixing by hand until
the dough leaves the sides of
the bowl.
Place dough on a floured
surface and knead until
smooth and elastic; about five
minutes. Place in a greased
bowl; turning to grease the
top. Cover and let rise in a
warm place until double in
size; 30 minutes. (You can turn
your electric oven on to 150
degrees for one minute, turn it
off, place bowl of dough on
rack with door closed). Poke
two fingers in the center of the
dough. If holes remain, raising
is complete.
Shape dough into an elon-
gated baseball bat about 34
inches long. On a greased
baking sheet, circle rope
around itself (large end under
center), until a round dome-
shaped Challah is formed.
Cover and let raise in a warm
place 15 minutes.
Combine 1 tablespoon egg
with 1 tablespoon water; brush
over the surface of the
Challah. Sprinkle with sesame
seeds if desired. Bake in a 375
degree oven for 55-60 minutes
or until golden brown. Cool on
a rack.
TZIMMES
(Traditional side-dish; a
meatless variety)
2 pounds carrots
3 pounds sweet potatoes or-
yams
12-16 ounces pitted prunes
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown
sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-2 tablespoons margarine
2 cups water
Slice carrots 1/2 inch thick.
Peel and slice sweet potatoes
into 1 1/2 x 1/2 inch chunks.
Combine all ingredients in a
large casserole. Cover and
bake in a 425 degree oven for
one hour.
Uncover; bake one hour
longer, stirring occasionally
until carrots and potatoes are
tender and water has evapor-
ated.
HONEY PECAN CAKE
(A modern adaptation of the
traditional Honey Lekach)
1 tablespoon vinegar and
enough milk to make 1 cup
1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups sugar
3eK8
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Honey glaze:
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
In a large mixing bowl, stir
oil into the sugar; add eggs and
vanilla. Beat one minute at
medium speed with an electric
mixer.
In another bowl combine
flour, baking powder, baking
soda and spices. Add to
creamed mixture alternately
with the sour milk. Beat one
minute more. Stir in the
pecans.
Pour into a well greased
10-inch fluted tube pan. Bake
in a 350 degree oven for 40
minutes.
Let stand 10 minutes.
Remove from pan.
In a small saucepan, bring
honey, water and lemon juice
to a boil. Prick holes in hot
cake; drizzle with Honey
Syrup. Cool on a rack.

Strategic Studies Find IDF
Shows Symptoms of Occupying Army
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Israel Defense Force is begin-
ning to exhibit psychological
symptoms of being occupiers,
a study in Israel on the
behavior of occupying armies
in modern history indicates.
The study was conducted
over a four-year period by Dr.
Yoram Peri of the Jaffee
Center for Strategic Studies at
Tel Aviv University. Its
purpose was to evaluate what
psychological effects Israel's
occupation of the West Bank
and Gaza Strip has had on
members of the IDF.
During the course of the four
years, Peri researched events
in Israel and elsewhere,
including Britain's military
involvement in Northern
Ireland. His study will soon be
published by Westview Press
of Boulder, Colo.
Peri, who is also deputy
editor of the Israeli daily
Davar, determinted a three-
fold process that occurs in the
occupier's psyche, beginning
with development of a "polit-
ical-military doctrine" within
the army's ranks.
He found that this was
followed by development of a
"self-image crisis" among the
soldiers, which finally leads to
a "crisis in civil-military rela-
tions."
Peri found this last problem
most pronounced in a
"citizen's army" where a
majority of citizens do military
service.
The problem is exacerbated,
he said, when there is a divi-
sion of opinion regarding the
occupation, and the subse-
quent resentment of the
army's actions by a segment of
society.
Without general societal
support for the military, the
army is compelled to take a
more extreme stand, which
aggravates the situation.
Peri described the potential
for "severe clashes with the
government" when an army
begins to veer from the
government position following
a long period of occupation,
especially when confronted by
rebellion within the populace.
In its extreme, he said, such
tension between army and
government could lead to a
"full-fledged military coup."
Peri analyzed the behavior
of individual soldiers in occu-
ftying armies and found that
engthy occupation, in situa-
tions of local opposition, could
produce demoralization and
what he calls the "pin-head
syndrome," a tendency to
keep a low profile and avoid
responsibility.
Settlers In The Territories
One factor which was
present prior to the uprising,
and which makes this occupa-
tion similar to other occupa-
tions in the world, is the pres-
ence of Israeli settlers within
the territories, forcing the
military to become politicized,
Peli reports.
But "twenty years of rela-
tive calm came to an end with
the outburst of the intifada, a
development which has
influenced the whole military
structure in the territories.
"The Palestinian rebellion
resulted in an explosion of
controversy, which caused
some of the characteristics of
other occupying armies to
surface in the IDF."
Peri writes that the present
situation of rebellion in the
territories demands anti-
subversive warfare measures,
but that the implementation of
such measures is difficult.
"Some of these measures,
e.g. 'the beating policy,' have
been greatly opposed by many
citizens, and this has lead to a
weakening of the consensus,"
he said.
"Soldiers are experiencing
conflicts of conscience while
serving in the territories, and
the number of conscientious
objectors is on the rise."
He ends on a pessimistic
note. "It is certain that the
situation will never return to
what it was before December
1987 ... for the most part,
damaging effects will or will
not develop in the IDF
depending on the level of
subversive warfare, whether
the consensus remains strong
within Israeli society, and
most important, what will be
the political solution to the
crisis, advocated by the
government."

West Germany To Change Aid To Territories
Friday, September 9, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 21
By DAVID KANTOR
BONN (JTA) West
[Germany is studying the
possibility of channeling its
economic assistance to the
West Bank and the Gaza Strip
through independent Pales-
tinian institutions, a
spokesman for the Ministry of
Economic Cooperation here
said.
The ministry handles Bonn's
aid programs to developing
countries around the globe.
The spokesman said that a
ministry official has been sent
to Amman, the Jordanian
capital, to study the matter.
Up to now, West Germany
has channeled its assistance to
New Political Party Formed;
Stresses Transfer of Arabs
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Res.
Major General Rehavam
(Gandhi) Zeevi, a confirmed
right-wing hawk, launched his
new Moledet (Motherland)
political party at its inaugural
meeting, firmly nailing the
motto "transfer to his mast-
head as the main plank in the
party's political platform.
The meeting was attended
by several hundred people,
mainly older citizens, who
applauded wildly every time
Zeevi mentioned the world
"transfer."
Zeevi, presently director of
Tel Aviv's Land of Israel
Museum at Ramat Aviv,
insists he plans to remove the
Arabs from Israel only by
agreement with them, and not
by force.
He told the gathering that he
dares to say aloud that the
Arabs should be removed from
ISrael what many Israelis
feel in their hearts.
"He has brought the idea of
the transfer of the Arabs out
of the closet and presented it
to the public view, for their
consideration and accep-
tance," his supporters say.
Meir Kahane's Kach party
also openly promotes the idea
of the forced transfer of Arabs
from Israel to the Arab states.
The right-wing Tehiya party
also supports the idea, but is
less blatant in pressing for it
as an open policy.
According to a Modiin
Ezrachi public opinion poll
published in Maarxv there has
been a marked political shift to
the right since the start of the
Palestinian uprising nine
months ago.
While 53 percent of the
1,278 people questioned said
they had not changed their
political position since the
unrest began, 32 percent said
they had become more
hawkish, while 14 percent said
they had shifted to the left and
were more dovish today than
previusly.

the territoriess held by
Israel since 1967 either
directly through Jordan or in
consent with Jordanian offi-
cials.
In the last 20 years, Bonn
assisted the territories with
$23.9 million worth of econ-
omic aid. Jordan annually
receives about $26.5 million
worth of financial and tech-
nical assistance from West
Germany.
A government spokesman in
Bonn stressed that West
Germany will continue to
support economic or educa-
tional projects in the terri-
tories, even in the aftermath of
Jordan's decision to abandon
its ties with the West Bank.
But he added that it
remained to be seen how
exactly the assistance will be
channeled.
Unlike a number of other
Western countries, West
Germany does not maintain a
separate consulate in Jeru-
salem. Usually, those consu-
lates handle relations with the
Palestinian community in all of
the West Bank and even in the
Gaza Strip.

Rosh Hashanah, 5749;
Thle Good News About Israel
By MITCHELL BARD
To judge from the American
press, one would think that
Israel was on the verge of
collapse. The Palestinian
uprising, we are told, has
severely damaged not only the
Israeli economy, but also
Israel's image around the
world.
The reality is quite different,
however, and the new year
seems an appropriate time to
reflect on the Jewish state's
accomplishments since last
Rosh Hashanah.
The unity government has
repeatedly come under fire for
its apparent inability to make
decisions, but the present coal-
ition was formed primarily for
two purposes: to facilitate the
withdrawal from Lebanon and
to take steps to prevent the
collapse of the economy. Both
of these objectives have been
accomplished.
Although there are still
Israeli troops patrolling a
security zone in southern
Lebanon, the bulk of the army
was withdrawn. There are still
sporadic attacks, but, for the
most part, the tranquility of
northern Israel has been
restored.
The economy has also made
a remarkable recovery, largely
as a result of austerity meas-
ures and the willingness of the
Israeli people to endure a
decline in their standard of
living.
After years of triple-digit
inflation, the 1987 inflation
rate fell to 16 percent, the
lowest figure in fifteen years.
The most recent figure for
this year, in June, shows the
smallest price increase in 10
years and represents an
annual rate of around 18
percent.
Tourism enjoyed a record
year, increasing by 25 percent
in 1987. Unfortunately, the
uprising has scared many tour-
ists away this year and the
number has fallen off.
The economy is still far from
robust because of Israel's
enormous foreign debt and
trade deficit, but it is far from
the collapse that was feared
five years ago.
Israel's international posi-
tion also has rebounded. Up
until the recent unrest, the
United Nations had devoted
considerably less time to its
ritual condemnation of Israel
than in the past.
Much of the credit for this
must go to the Reagan admin-
istration, which proved that
determined leadership such as
that exhibited by Jeane
Kirkpatrick and Vernon
Walters can prevent the
degeneration of UN debates
into anti-Israel diatribes.
Even more important has
been Israel's success in
improving bilateral relations
with other nations. For years
Israel enjoyed good relations
with much of Black Africa.
That changed as a result of
Arab pressure in 1973, which
forced most of those nations to
sever ties with Israel.
In the past few years,
several of those nations have
restored relations and a
number of others are on the
verge of doing so. Prime
Minister Shamir deserves
much of the credit for this
development.
Similarly, Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres deserves credit
for improving relations with

Good News
About Israel
Continued from Page 22
Western Europe, particularly
France, where Peres and
Francois Mitterand have had a
long personal friendship.
Last November, in fact,
Jacques Chirac became the
first French premier to visit
Israel.
Worth mentioning also is the
improvement in Israel's tradi-
tionally frosty relations in
Asia. Israeli officials hope that
Japanese Foreign Minister
Sosuke Uno's July visit (also a
first) will signal to the
Japanese business community,
which largely adheres to the
Arab boycott, that contacts
with Israel are now permis-
sible.
In addition, there have been
an increasing number of
contacts with China, a
burgeoning relationship made
all the more important by the
fact that the People's Republic
is likely to be a participant
should an international peace
conference be convened.
An equally noteworthy
development has been the
improvement in Israel's rela-
tionship with the Eastern Bloc
countries. East Germany
announced that it would
consder the negotiation of
reparations for Holocaust
survivors.
Poland, Bulgaria, and
Hungary have upgraded their
ties with Israel, undoubtedly
with the consent of the Soviet
Union. Most importantly, the
Soviets have shown signs of
moving toward a restoration
of relations.
A Soviet delegation visited
Israel at the end of last year
and the first Israeli delegation
to visit Moscow in 21 years
arrived at the end of July.
There is still a long way to
go, but any improvement in
Israeli-Soviet relations must
be seen as a positive develop-
ment not only for the pros-
pects of Middle East peace,
but also for the treatment of
Soviet Jews.
Despite all that has
happened in the decade since
Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat made his journey to
Jerusalem, Israeli-Egyptian
relations remain solid.
True, they are not as warm
as Israelis would like, but the
peace treaty is still in force.
There is a tendency to say
Israel "only" has peace with
Egypt, but it must be remem-
bered that Egypt is the leader
of the Arab states combined,
and the most formidable mili-
tary threat to Israel.
The restoration of relations
by most of the Arab states
with Egypt has vindicated
Sadat's view that peace with
Israel is possible. It only
remains for other Arab leaders
to show the same degree of
courage.
American Jews constantly
complain about the double
standard applied to news
coverage of Israel. Now that
Jews are also speaking out
against what is taking place in
Israel, it is important that we
not fall into the same trap.
The present situation is
indeed disturbing, but there
have also been a lot of encour-
aging developments in Israel
during the last year that
should not be ignored.

Murder of Alleged Collaborator Seen As Revenge for New Crackdown.
By GIL SEDAN
JERUALEM (JTA) Again
Palestinians brutally
murdered a fellow Arab
suspected of having collabor-
ated with the Israeli author-
ities.
The liquidation of collabor-
ators is being viewed here as
revenge for the latest crack-
down on the 8-month-old
uprising. It is also being seen
as a response to Israel's
attempt to cripple the grass-
roots influence of the outlawed
"popular committees," set up
to try to supplant Israeli
authority in the territories.
The murders may also mean
a new phase in the uprising: a
return to the Arab vs. Arab
terrorism that characterized
the Arab revolts of 1936 to
1939.
The body of Samih Yusuf
a-Dababse, 22, was found
hand-cuffed to an electricity
pole in downtown Hebron. He
apparently had been beaten to
death.
Dababse was a resident of
the nearby town of Yatta.
Earlier, another Yatta resi-
dent, Saadi Hazazeh, 35, was
murdered by a group of people
with ax blows, after they broke
into his home early in the
morning.
Also, a gasoline bomb was
thrown at the house of the
local mayor and the town
council building. And a
Molotov cocktail was thrown
at the vehicle of an Arab iden-
tified as a collaborator in
another village in the hills
outside Hebron. He was not
hurt.
The attacks appear to signal
that a circle is closing. The
popular committees were
erected with the declared
purpose of replacing services
provided by the Israeli author-
ities. They were to be adminis-
tered through Palestinian
bodies, such as the local munic-
ipalities.
Now that the authorities
have outlawed the committees,
their organizers are appar-
ently seeking punishment of
the collaborators who,
they say, enabled the crack-
down on the committees.
In the past, the security
forces have been frustrated in
their attempts to protect those
who cooperate with Israel. At
the early stages of the
uprising, a person identified as
an agent of the authorities was
lynched at the village of Kaba-
tiya. Following that attack,
the security forces were criti-
cized for having "deserted"
Arabs who have opposed the
uprising.
But despite precautions, prevent Palestinians from
there seems to be no way to attacking each other.

Strategic Studies Find IDF
Shows Symptoms of Occupying Army

NEW YORK (JTA) The
Israel Defense Force is begin-
ning to exhibit psychological
symptoms of being occupiers,
a study in Israel on the
behavior of occupying armies
in modern history indicates.
The study was conducted
over a four-year period by Dr.
Yoram Peri of the Jaffee
Center for Strategic Studies at
Tel Aviv University. Its
purpose was to evaluate what
psychological effects Israel's
occupation of the West Bank
and Gaza Strip has had on
members of the IDF.
During the course of the four
years, Peri researched events
in Israel and elsewhere,
including Britain's military
involvement in Northern
Ireland. His study will soon be
published by Westview Press
of Boulder, Colo.
Peri, who is also deputy
editor of the Israeli daily
Davar, determinted a three-
fold process that occurs in the
occupier's psyche, beginning
with development of a "polit-
ical-military doctrine" within
the army's ranks.
He found that this was
followed by development of a
"self-image crisis" among the
soldiers, which finally leads to
a "crisis in civil-military rela-
tions."
Peri found this last problem
most pronounced in a
"citizen's army" where a
majority of citizens do military
service.
The problem is exacerbated,
he said, when there is a divi-
sion of opinion regarding the
occupation, and the subse-
quent resentment of the
army's actions by a segment of
society.
Without general societal
support for the military, the
army is compelled to take a
more extreme stand, which
aggravates the situation.
Peri described the potential
for "severe clashes with the
government" when an army
begins to veer from the
government position following
a long period of occupation,
especially when confronted by
rebellion within the populace.
In its extreme, he said, such
tension between army and
government could lead to a
"full-fledged military coup."
Peri analyzed the behavior
of individual soldiers in occu-
pying armies and found that
lengthy occupation, in situa-
tions of local opposition, could
produce demoralization and
what he calls the "pin-head
syndrome," a tendency to
keep a low profile and avoid
responsibility.
Settlers In The Territories
One factor which was
present prior to the uprising,
and which makes this occupa-
tion similar to other occupa-
tions in the world, is the pres-
ence of Israeli settlers within
the territories, forcing the
military to become politicized,
Peli reports.
But "twenty years of rela-
tive calm came to an end with
the outburst of the intifada, a
development which has
influenced the whole military
structure in the territories.
"The Palestinian rebellion
resulted in an explosion of
controversy, which caused
some of the characteristics of
other occupying armies to
surface in the IDF."
Peri writes that the present
situation of rebellion in the
territories demands anti-
subversive warfare measures,
but that the implementation of
such measures is difficult.
"Some of these measures,
e.g. 'the beating policy,' have
been greatly opposed by many
citizens, and this has lead to a
weakening of the consensus,"
he said.
"Soldiers are experiencing
conflicts of conscience while
serving in the territories, and
the number of conscientious
objectors is on the rise."
He ends on a pessimistic
note. "It is certain that the
situation will never return to
what it was before December
1987 for the most part,
damaging effects will or will
not develop in the IDF
depending on the level of
subversive warfare, whether
the consensus remains strong
within Israeli society, and
most important, what will be
the political solution to the
crisis, advocated by the
government."

Israel:
A Vacation For Everyone
Israel is a nation of exciting
contrasts from the historic
Old City of Jerusalem to the
bustling metropolis of Tel
Aviv. There is an equally
contrasting assortment of
vacation options in Israel
from the elegant hotels of Tel
Aviv to the sun-splashed
resorts of Eilat, to the kibbutz
hotels of the Galilee. Yet,
perhaps the most appealing
quality of vacationing in Israel
is that one need not go far in
any direction to enjoy it all. All
that Israel has to offer is
"Carmelit" Subway takes visi-
tors up Mt. Carmel to the
Carmel Center where many of
its hotels and outdoor restau-
rants are located. The Carmel
Center is also the site of some
of Israel's most beautiful
homes. The most memorable
site for visitors to the Carmel
Center is a magnificent birds-
eye view of the city.
Eilat, Israel's southern most
community is an arena for sun,
watersports and sightseeing.
It is home to some of the most
bustling street corner in Jerusalem.
within a radius of 8,108 square
miles roughly the size of the
state of New Jersey.
Tel Aviv, best described as
Israel's pulsating center, is the
economic and cultural capital
of Israel. What was merely
desolate sand-dunes less than
a century ago is now a thriving
city humming with activity.
While Tel Aviv is cosmopol-
itan, it is also Israel's Mediter-
ranean metropolis offering
visitors a long stretch of beach
and the breathtaking coastline
of the Mediterranean sea.
Tel Aviv is known as the
"biggest little city" in the
world as visitors are able to
enjoy a wide range of activities
including sports, shopping,
arts, music, dining, nightlife
and a temperate climate year-
round.
Tel Aviv was merged with
the city of Jaffa in 1950 and is
now officially referred to as
Tel Aviv-Jaffa. Jaffa, one of
the world's most ancient ports,
is now the home of an artists
colony, art galleries, crafts
shops, restaurants and night
clubs. For many, Jaffa is the
place to experience Israel's
vibrant nightlife. The year-
round comfortable climate and
informal atmosphere makes it
an ideal place for people to get
away from it all without
forfeiting the comforts of
home.
About 50 miles further north
is the city of Haifa a village
that at the time of its destruc-
tion in the mid-18th century
had less than 250 inhabitants.
Today it is Israel's third
largest city, home to two
major universities the Tech-
nion and Haifa University.
The name Haifa translates
into a Hebrew contraction
Hof Yafe or beautiful coast.
Haifa is not only known for its
majestic beauty as it is also a
world-renowned high-
technology center.
Haifa also boasts Israel's
only subway which operates on
the same principal as San
Francisco's cable cars. The
breathtaking coral reefs in all
the world and, one of Eilat's
most popular attractions
Coral World Underwater
Observatory will allow visi-
tors a close-up look. The
Observatory is set into the reef
itself. Visitors descend down a
spiral staircase and emerge in
a circular room with windows
facing out into the coral reef.
Sea, sand and sun are not the
only year-round attractions in
Eliat there is also birdwat-
ching, a wildlife reserve the
Hai Bar, and horseback riding
at the Kibbutz Ketura.
Many of the reasons for
experiencing Israel first-hand
are evident in the capital city
of Jerusalem. One of the most
ancient cities in the world, the
Old City of Jerusalem is enor-
mously rewarding for any
visitor. Sitting apart from the
rest of the city, on a hill over-
looking a steep valley, Old
Jerusalem today has four
sections: the Jewish Quarter;
the Christian Quarter; the
Armenian Quarter and the
Moslem Quarter.
Jersualem's most commem-
orative sites include the
Western Wall, the Dome of the
Rock and the Holy Sepulchre.
The Western Wall or the
Wailing Wall is the holiest
shrine of the Jewish world, the
Holy Sepulchre the most
sacred site in all Christendom
and the Dome of the Rock one
of the most commemorative
Muslim monuments.
Israel is a place for visitors
from all countries and of all
faiths. From Bedouin camps in
the desert to five-star hotels in
Haifa, Israel offers an
astounding journey through
the old and new, the past and
present. This intermingle of
cultures offers an adventure
that must be experienced by
all. For further information on
travel to Israel, contact the

Office in Miami Beach (305)

Aides Bring Joy and
Yiddishkeit To Seniors
Alvin Gorodetzer is no rabbi.
But Mr. Perlman of Royal
Manor Nursing Home didn't
mind; he just needed someone
to talk to in his time of need.
Perlman had seen Gorodetzer
every Friday when he came to
lead shabbat services during
the afternoon. He called him
rabbi because to Perlman,
Gorodetzer was his rabbi.
Many of the Chaplain Aides
at the Jewish Federation have
"For many of these people,
we are a window to their
Judaism," said Gorodetzer
about the mission of the Chap-
lain Aides. "The volunteers
are from all different back-
grounds, but really we're all
just caring Jews who want to
help others." Gorodetzer feels
the service is a means to a
relationship with God for
many of the nursing home resi-
dents.
Alvin Gorodetzer leads Fountainview residents in Friday
afternoon services.
similar stories. Alvin
Gorodetzer, Chaplain Aides
Chairman, and 65 senior
volunteers spend every Friday
afternoon in 28 nursing and
retirement homes in Palm
Beach County. Sylvia Berger
has been re-appointed co-chair
this year. They go to light
sabbath candles, make
kiddush, say the prayers and
sing songs with the Jewish
residents who have little or no
other connection to their tradi-

According to Gorodetzer, all
the aides are extremely enthu-
siastic and work to establish
personal relationships with the
people they visit. "The one-on-
one aspect is very important,"
he said.

Dinitz and Kaplan To Address GA
NEW YORK, NY Two
prominent leaders of the
Jewish Agency will be the
featured speakers at the 57th
General Assembly of the
Council of Jewish Federations,
the major annual gathering of
North American Jewish
Simcha Dinitz
community leaders scheduled
for New Orleans Nov. 16-20,
1988.
Simcha Dinitz, Chairman of
the Jewish Agency Executive
and Former Israeli Ambas-
sador to the United States,
and Mendel I. Kaplan,
Chairman of the Jewish
Agency Board of Governors,
will each address the overall
General Assembly theme,
"Areyvim Zeh Bazeh: Respon-
sibility and Service Federa-
tions Role in Creating a Caring
Community," at the Marriott
& Sheraton Hotels in New
Orleans.
Specifically, Dinitz will
discuss the need for mutual
responsibility and caring
between Israel and North
America during the overseas
plenary session on Thursday
evening, Nov. 17 and Kaplan
will deliver a statement
following the Thursday
morning plenary session.

To Visit
Israel
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
Bolshoi Ballet will send its
world-famous dancers to Israel
next year, and the Red Army
Chorus is to tour the Jewish
state the following year, under
an agreement reached in
Moscow.
The plan to bring two of the
Soviet Union's most prestig-
ious arts ensembles to Israel
was reportedly approved at
the highest level of the Soviet
government.
It appears to be further
evidence that relations
between Jerusalem and
Moscow are at their warmest
since the Kremlin severed ties
21 years ago.
Last month, the Soviets
authorized a group of Austra-
lian Jewish singers to tour the
Soviet Union in November,
under the auspices of the
Soviet Ministry of Culture.
They will be the first foreign
Jews to perform in the Soviet
Union in recent memory.
In August, an agreement
was made in Leningrad
between Soviet officials and
the visiting president of the
Israeli Chamber of Commerce
in Tel Aviv, Dan Gillerman.
term as Political Advisor to
Former Prime Minister Golda
Meir, Simcha Dinitz was
appointed Israeli Ambassador
to the United States in 1973.
During his six years in office,
Dinitz played a major role in
the Camp David negotiations
and dealt with the tragedy and
aftermath of the Yom Kippur
War.
Elected to the Knesset in
1984, Dinitz presently serves
on the Foreign Affairs and
Defense Committee and on the
Knesset Committee.
From 1974-1978, Mendel I.
Kaplan, a native of South
Africa, served as National
Chairman of the United
Communal Fund of South
Africa. In his hometown of
Johannesburg, Kaplan has
been National Chairman of the
Israel United Appeal since
1978 and currently serves as
Vice President of both the
South African Jewish Board of
Deputies and the Jewish Board
of Education.
Kaplan is chairman of the
Jewish Agency Board of
Governors. For the past five
years, he has also been
Chairman of the United Israel
Appeal-Keren Hayesod World
Board of Trustees.
In addition to major events
with distinguished speakers,
the General Assembly will also
feature hundreds of smaller
sessions including forums,

NEW YORK (JTA) The
Jewish Family Research Insti-
tute has undertaken to build
the world's first Museum of
the Mikveh, the Jewish ritual
bath, according to a report in
the Boro Park Voice.
The museum is to be located
on a tract of land already
donated by the city of Herzliya
in Israel.
The musuem will feature
both permanent and traveling
exhibitions, including displays
of mikvehs throughout the
ages.
Plans for exhibits range
from the archaeological disco-
veries of the mikveh at
Masaryk and Koran and the
special mikveh for kohanim on
the Temple Mount in Jeru-
salem, to the medieval
mikvehs constructed
throughout Europe.
The exhibit will also show
the most modern of elegant
mikvehs in operation in Jewish
communities around the world
today.
Other plans include an oper-
ational mikveh to be erected
on the premises in conjunction
with a specialized library and
information center on the
subject of the mikveh's role in
Jewish family life.

On Yom Kippur:
Yizkor, A Prayer For Remembrance
Friday, September 16, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 5
By Dvora Waysman
The Day of Atonement is the
most awesome of the Hebrew
calendar. From sunset to
sunset, Jews pray and abstain
from food and drink, until the
blast of the shofar, the ram's
horn, announces that the
Scrolls have been shut for
another year. By then it will
have been decided who will live
and who will die, who will wax
rich and who will be poor, who
will rise in the world and who
will be brought low, who will
live in peace and who will not.
There are many impressive
prayers included in the Yom
Kippur ritual, but there is one
that is unique. About half-way
THE SOUND of weeping
can be heard from some parts
of the synagogue, and people
rock back and forth intoning
the Yizkor prayer in memory
of close relatives who are no
longer with them. The prayer
book calls this the "Memorial
of the Departed," but the
literal translation of Yizkor is
"he shall remember." This
special prayer is said on only
three other occasions during
the year Shemini Atzeret
(the last day of Sukkot), the last
day of Passover and on
Shavuot."
Excessive mourning is not
part of the Jewish tradition,
which is perhaps why the
w* aw uuivjuv, liiA/ut I1CU1 Wc*V --------------- "" r'"|'' IIJ tilt
through the morning service, Yizkor prayer is said rarely. It
after the reading of the Law, is written in Jeremiah 22:10:
you will notice that the syna-
gogue is suddenly filled to
capacity particularly the
women's gallery, which
usually has vacant seats here
and there during the
long day's ritual.
SUDDENLY, not only is
every seat filled, but people
are standing in every space at
the back and between the
aisles, as with a single thump
on the Bima a voice announces
one word, Yizkor.
"Weep ye not in excess for the
dead, neither bemoan them."
But on Yom Kippur it is
permitted to give vent to one's
true feelings of despair and
loss as one recalls beloved
parents, brothers and sisters,
children, husbands or wives,
who once added a dimension of
joy to our lives but are no
longer with us.
IT IS believed that the
custom of Yizkor dates back to
the Hasmonean wars
ON THE COVER: YANNAI ben Yitzhak Reuven is
a self-described "kinetic-neo-realist." He is a 37-year-
old graduate of the University of Minnesota whose
Judaic art is characterized by overlapping transparen-
cies, luminated colorations, abstract geometries and a
subtle time/motion quality.
The stained-glass-window effect and spiritual
imagery depict clearly YANNAI's background of
traditional religious beliefs and keen awareness of
Jewish history.

(165 BCE) when Judah the
Maccabee and his men prayed
for the souls of their fallen
comrades and brought offer-
ings to the Temple in
Jersualem as atonement for
the sins of the dead. Today, it
has become a custom to donate
charity on behalf of loved ones
so that their souls may enjoy
eternal life. Historically,
Yizkor gained in significance
through the Crusades and
severe persecutions that took
place in Eastern Europe
during the 17th Century when
thousands of Jews died as
martyrs. They were all
inscribed in the death rolls
yizkor-bukh of their communi-
ties and commemorated in
memorial prayers on the four
annual occasions to which we
still adhere today. In time, the
death rolls included not only
the names of martyrs, but
other members of the
community and the custom of
Yizkor evolved.
The prayer is not only heart-
rending, but serves to remind
us of how short a time we are
on earth. Before we ask for
remembrance of the souls of
loved ones, we recite the
words:
Synagogue
To Be
Restored
BONN (JTA) The govern-
ment of the northern federal
state of Schleswig Holstein
provided $12,220 last week to
repair the Jewish synagogue in
Kiel, the state's capital.
Prime Minister Bjoern
Engholm of the Social Demo-
cratic Party told the
community that the govern-
ment considered it its duty to
help in carrying out mainte-
nance work at the 100-year-old
temple.
The synagogue, on St.
Annen Street, is the only one
operating in Schleswig
Holstein. According to Jewish
community officials, $24,440 is
to be invested in the coming
weeks in urgent maintenance
works.
Lord, what is man that thou
regardest him? Or the son of
man, that thou takest
account of him?
Man is like to vanity; his days
are as a shadow that
passeth away.
In the morning he bloometh
afresh, in the evening he is
cut down and withereth.
So teach us to number our days
that we may get us a heart of
wisdom...

U.N. Chief Urges Organizations To Pressure Israel To Negotiate
By TAMAR LEVY
GENEVA (JTA) The
secretary-general of the
United Nations has called on
non-governmental organiza-
tions to exert international
pressure on Israel to "promote
an effective negotiating
process and to help create the
conditions necessary for it to
succeed."
Javier Perez de Cuellar also
recommended that the inter-
national community make a
concerted effort to persuade
Israel to accept the applica-
bility of the Fourth Geneva
Convention of 1949 to the
administered territories.
The convention prohibits the
expulsion "for any reasons
whatsoever" of civilians from
an area under military occupa-
tion. Israel insists that the
convention does not apply to
the territories, since it has not
extended Israeli law to the
areas it administers.
Perez de Cuellar was
addressing the fifth interna-
tional meeting of Non-
Governmental Organizations
at UN European headquarters
here.
The secretary-general
referred to the NGOs as a
"network of organizations"
devoted to "the achievement
of the inalienable rights of the
Palestinian people in confor-
mity with UN resolutions." He
described the NGO role as
"pivotal."
While describing certain
measures taken to deal with
the emergency situation in the
territories, Perez de Cuellar
also strongly emphasized that
"measures to enhance the
safety and protection of the
Palestinian people in the occu-
pied territories, though
urgently needed, will neither
remove the causes of the
recent tragic events nor bring
peace to the region."
He emphasized the need for
a political settlement to the
problem, "which responds
both to the refusal of the
Palestinian population of the
territories to accept a future
under Israeli occupation and to
Israel's determination to
ensure its security and the
well-being of its people."
The secretary-general's
statement followed by two
days his meeting with Yasir
Arafat, the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization chairman.
Arafat told the UN leader that
establishing a Palestinian
government in exile is one of
the ideas he plans to present
next month at a meeting of the
Palestine National Council in
Algiers.
During the meeting of the
NGOs, which has been
addressing the "question of
Palestine," PLO representa-
tives have described atrocities
allegedly carried out by Israel here.
Defense force soldiers.
Zehdi Terzi, the PLO's
permanent observer to the
United Nations, said that since
December 1987, Israeli author-
ities have brutalized his people
by burning and burying them
alive, shooting them with live
as well as rubber bullets, using
lethal gas and breaking bones.
He accused Israel of flaunting
"any of the norms of civilized
society."
There appeared to be much
sympathy for the PLO position
Mikko Lohikoski, chairman
of the NGO coordinating
committee, said, "The mass-
based popular uprising of
Palestinian people of the West
Bank and Gaza has forcefully
demonstrated that the Pales-
tinian people, united in resist-
ence to the Israeli occupation,
is demanding a political settle-
ment based on the recognition
of the right of self-
determination in the form of
an independent Palestinian
state."

New Political Party Formed;
Stresses Transfer of Arabs
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Res.
Major General Rehavam
(Gandhi) Zeevi, a confirmed
right-wing hawk, launched his
new Moledet (Motherland)
political party at its inaugural
meeting, firmly nailing the
motto "transfer to his mast-
head as the main plank in the
party's political platform.
The meeting was attended
by several hundred people,
mainly older citizens, who
applauded wildly every time
Zeevi mentioned the world
"transfer."
Zeevi, presently director of
Tel Aviv's Land of Israel
Museum at Ramat Aviv,
insists he plans to remove the
Arabs from Israel only by
agreement with them, and not
by force.
He told the gathering that he
dares to say aloud that the
Arabs should be removed from
ISrael what many Israelis
feel in their hearts.
"He has brought the idea of
the transfer of the Arabs out
of the closet and presented it
to the public view, for their
consideration and accep-
tance," his supporters say.
Meir Kahane's Kach party
also openly promotes the idea
of the forced transfer of Arabs
from Israel to the Arab states.
The right-wing Tehiya party
also supports the idea, but is
less blatant in pressing for it
as an open policy.
According to a Modiin
Ezrachi public opinion poll
published in Maarxv there has
been a marked political shift to
the right since the start of the
Palestinian uprising nine
months ago.
While 53 percent of the
1,278 people questioned said
they had not changed their
political position since the
unrest began, 32 percent said
they had become more
hawkish, while 14 percent said
they had shifted to the left and
were more dovish today than
previusly.

The Great Divide:
On the Nature of God
By ROBERT SANDLER
There are many issues and
problems in Jewish life today
about which Jews disagree
with one another. It would be
oversimplistic to say that
differences and disagreements
among Jews exist only along
the lines that separate the
organizational branches of
Orthodox, Conservative,
Reform, and Reconstructionist
Judaism, or that separate
secular Jews from religious
Jews. It is very likely that
many Jews, even within the
same organizational branch,
would disagree with one
another on certain issues or
ideas.
The word, the idea, the
essence of God, the as yet
unknown perhaps unknow-
able "original creative
energy," or "force," or
"power" in the universe offers
an excellent and very
important case in point of an
issue about which many Jews
disagree.
It would seem to be desirable
for all Jews to understand that
whenever they use or discuss
or read the word God, they are
very likely not thinking the
same thoughts about what that
have the power in some way
that is not comprehensible in
rational human terms to
control all natural and human
events on the planet Earth or
anywhere in the cosmos. Some
Jews believe, as it is written in
the Torah, that the creative
power in the entire universe
God not only spoke to Moses
3,300 years ago in Egypt and
in the Sinai Desert but that He
had spoken regularly with
Adam and with Abraham and
with many others... from
space... somehow. Some Jews
believe that the universal
creator, God, actually revealed
Himself to Moses at Sinai and
that He chose the Israelites to
be His special people.
Some Jews believe in a God
of all creation who either
caused, or at least allowed, the
Holocaust to happen... for
whatever reason. Many other
Jews, however, do not believe
in a God who has the power to
have caused such a barbarous
occurrence as the Holocaust or
to have prevented it.
Eight hundred years ago, in
his Mishne Torah, Maimonides
wrote that "the Holy One,
blessed be he, is incorporeal."
He goes on to ask, rhetorically,
"Isaac and Jacob did not base their views
on the searching of Abraham; they
themselves searched for God in their own
way."
word God, signifies. In
Judaism, there is no explicit,
universally-accepted concept,
essence, or idea of God. In
Judaism, there is certainly no
physical definition or charac-
teristic of God. Furthermore,
in Judaism, there is no
authority that is endowed and
empowered by Jews to make
any explicit official pronounce-
ment about the precise nature
of God. That being the case, it
behooves every Jew to think
for himself and then to
acknowledge and respect the
validity of thoughts and beliefs
relating to the term, or idea, of
God. The only caveat is that,
for Jews, ideas and beliefs
about God cannot refute, nor
conflict with, the idea of a
monotheistic, non-corporeal,
meaningful creative energy or
power in the universe.
Some Jews believe that a
monotheistic, non-corporeal
God a supernatural being of
some sort may actually be
able to hear human prayers in
various human languages.
Some Jews probably believe
that a monotheistic, non-
corporeal God may actually
"Since this is so, what is the
meaning of the expressions
found in the Torah: "Beneath
his feet"; "written with the
finger of God"; "The hand of
God"; "The eyes of God";
"The ears of God", and similar
phrases?" Maimonides
explains these phrases by
explicitly asserting that "All
such terminology is adapted to
the conception of the sons of
man who have a clear percep-
tion of corporeal things only.
The Torah," the Rambam
States, "speaks in the
language of men. All these
phrases are metaphorical...
and figurative."
Even Maimonides, like the
late theologian and philo-
sopher, Mordecai Kaplan, and
like many other thinking Jews,
past and present, did not
believe in a God, a deity, the
creator of the cosmos, as some
sort of personal omnipotent
being, who had a human-like
will and intelligence, and who,
at His whim, is able to cause
good or evil to occur in nature
or in human life. Maimonides
understood the metaphoric
language of the Biblical
UTA
writers.
About 250 years ago,
someone once asked Israel Ben
Eliezer, the Baal Shem Tov,
why we say, in the siddur,
"God of Abraham, God of
Isaac, and God of Jacob" and
not simply, "God of Abraham,
Isaac, and Jacob." What the
original writer intended when
he wrote that passage many
centuries earlier we can never
know. For his part, however,
the Baal Shem Tov wanted to
make a particular point when
he responded that "Isaac and
Jacob did not base their views
on the searching of Abraham;
they themselves searched for
God in their own way.'
Jewish writers and scholars
throughout Jewish
history had, of course,
provided the Baal Shem Tov
with ample precedence upon
which to make the point that
each generation must do its
own creative thinking even
about the "idea" of God.
Somewhere in the writing of
our sages there is a story about
a discussion in which several
scholars were attempting to
describe the actual nature of
God. The leader of the group
might have posed the
following question: since we
attribute so much meaning and
importance to God, who, or
what, exactly, are we talking
about? As the story goes, a
long and lively discussion
followed in which almost ever-
yone participated.
One of the men did not
participate, although he
listened very intently to the
various comments of his
colleagues.

After some time, when it
became evident that neither
general agreement nor any
conclusive resolution of this
vexing subject could be
reached, a momentary silence
descended upon the group.
One man, who had had a great
deal to say during the discus-
sion, looked around and
abstruse subject the nature
of God we should continue
the doing of mitzvot. The basic
points of these stories should
evoke in everyone who thinks
about the "nature of God" a
healthy amount of humility
and tolerance. They should
evoke in us a feeling of
humility.

became aware of the one who
had not said anything. He then
turned to him and asked,
"Yochanan, you have been
listening to our discussion, but
you have not said a single
word. What do you think about
this matter of God?" Yochanan
responded politely but with
conviction, "If you want to
know what / think, I will tell
you; I think that if God could
have heard this discussion, He
would say, 'Let them spend
less time trying to figure out
who or what I am and devote
more time to the doing of
mitzvot."
Thus, we are taught that,
even while we explore and
probe and debate this most
These stories should also
induce in all of us a healthy
dose of tolerance as we become
aware that many of mankind's
most brilliant minds have
wrestled strenuously with this
"idea of God" and have
reached a variety of different
conclusions. Even in such a
frustrating situation, however,
we are admonished to fulfill
our human responsibilities
with compassion for our fellow
human beings and with
respect for those whose ideas
about the "nature of God" may
be different from our own.

Polls Give Labor
Edge Over Likud
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
Labor Alignment has a slight
edge over the Likud bloc,
according to new polls
conducted by the parties, but
would not win enough votes to
form a government on its own,
if elections were held today.
The Likud poll, conducted by
the Dahaf organization, gives
Labor 42 seats in the 120-seat
Knesset versus 40 for Likud.
Labor's own poll, conducted by
the Dessima organization, puts
the breakdown at 43 seats for
Labor and 38 for Likud.
Likud conducted its poll
among 1,175 Israeli Jews from
Aug. 7 to 14. Labor polled
i'50!3 Jews and 1-200 Israeli
Arabs during the first half of
August. The results of both
surveys were published in the
daily Yediot Achronot.
Labor's polling found that
the party is likely to lose 40
percent of the backing it has
received from Arabs in
previous years, Haaretz
reported.
The poll found Labor
earning only 19 percent of the
Arab vote, down 10 percen-
tage points from previous elec-
tions. The Hadash Communist
party and the Progressive List
for Peace together polled 54
percent of the Arab vote,
Knesset member Abd-el
Wahab Darousha's new party
six percent, the Citizens
Rights Movement (CRM) 5.5
percent, Likud 5.5 percent and
Mapam 2.5 percent.
Meanwhile, a poll conducted
by the East Jerusalem weekly
Al-Biadir A-Siyasi among 500
Arabs living in the Jerusalem
area found that only 6 percent
intend to participate in the
Jerusalem municipal elections
next February. The poll also
found that only 15 percent of
the respondents support the
re-election of Mayor Teddy
Kollek.

Relic From First Temple Goes On Display In Israel
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA)-A small
ivory pomegranate verified to
be the first known relic from
the First Temple has gone on
display at the Israel Museum.
The thumb-sized pome-
granate a rimon clearly
bears the inscription
"Belonging to the Temple of
the Lord, Holy to the Priests."
The rimon, which was
The 2,800-year-old object is
badly chipped on one side. The
validating inscription is
written in ancient Hebrew in
completely legible script. It is
believed to be the oldest
known inscription with the
Hebrew name of God.
The only other relic of the
First Temple is said to be
silver scrolls bearing the bene-
diction of the Kohanim, the
high priests. The scrolls were
recently found in a burial cave
overlooking Jerusalem's
Hinnom Valley, outside the
Old City.
The rimon is believed to be
at least 100 years older.
The ivory pomegranate's
acquisition by the Israel
Museum marks the end of an
international journey that
began nine years ago, when
the rimon was bought in Israel
by an unknown party and
smuggled out of the country.
The buyer in turn sold the
object to an anonymous party
in Switzerland, who bought it
for the museum.
An Israeli archaeologist
examined the rimon in Swit-
zerland and verified its authen-
ticity.
Israeli newspapers soecu
lated that the rimon might
have been purchased bv an
Israeli for a few hundred
dollars from a local dealer and
smuggled to Europe, where it
was placed on display in
France. The object's value was
estimated when the exhibition
curator sought advice for
insurance purposes.

one inch wide. Carved from a
single piece of ivory, it has a
flat base through which is cut a
small hole.
The rimon may have topped
the scepter of a high priest,
according to instructions laid
down in Exodus and Kings I.
Rimonim were also used to
adorn the high priests' robes.
According to the Book of
Exodus, "And upon the skirts
of it thou shalt make pome-
granates of blue and of purple
and of scarlet round about; and
bells of gold between them
round about; a golden bell and
a pomegranate, upon the
skirts of the robe round
about."
The rimon is the first arti-
fact to be attributed to the
First Temple built by King
Solomon. Scientists who
analyzed the small object have
dated it to around the 8th
century B.C.E.
Solomon's Temple was dest-
royed by the Babylonians in
586 B.C.E.

WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Bureau of Prisons Director J.
Michael Quinlan assured a
group of religious leaders that
Anne Henderson Pollard, wife
of convicted spy Jonathan Jay
Pollard, will receive certain
improvements in her treat-
ment in prison, bureau spokes-
woman Kathryn Morse said.
She said that Quinlan agreed
to allow rabbis to visit Anne
and Jonathan privately. Also,
he promised to allow two of
Anne Pollard's doctors to visit
her.
But Morse disputed a claim
by one member of the group,
Rev. William Harter of Cham-
bersburg, Pa., that Pollard
would also be allowed to take
certain medications currently
being denied to her. Morse
said Quinlan simply agreed to
"look at" the medicine issue.
The drug in question, Domper-
idone, would help her digest
food.
Morse could not be reached
to confirm or deny Harter's
statements that Quinlan also
agreed to lift media restric-
tions on Anne Pollard, and to
consider transferring her to a
prison closer to her hometown.
She is currently at the Federal
Medical Center in Rochester,
Minn.
Anne Pollard, who is serving
a five-year sentence with no
parole for being an accessory
to her husband's crime, suffers
from a debilitating disorder
called biliary dyskinesia, and
has had difficulty digesting
food.
Jonathan Pollard, who was
sentenced to life imprisonment
without parole, is incarcerated
at the U.S. Penitentiary in
Marion, 111., which Morse said
is the highest security U.S.
prison.

generations of Israeli artists,
living and working in Israel
today.
Diaspora/'Sabra, the first
extensive exhibition of
contemporary Israeli art in
this country, gives insight into
the exceptional quality of the
art being produced by Israeli
artists.
The variety of media and
styles indicates the personal
character of the art being
produced by Israeli artists.
The exhibit is pluralistic in its
many contemporary
approaches from expres-
sionism to abstraction, mini-
malism to post modernism.
Israelite Antiquities: Circa
3000 B.C. 12th Century A.D.
is an exhibition of over 50
artifacts and objects revealing
a magnificient collection of
utilitarian pottery, glass
vessels, flasks, oil lamps, and
Roman artifacts of Israeli
origin. Through these works
we glimpse the religion, home
life and political environment
of ancient Israel.
Covering approximately the
same land area as the modem
Israeli state, ancient Israel
served as the crossroads for
migrations, conquests and
trade for numerous civiliza-
tions. The art of ancient Israel
reflects diverse characteristics
from its neighboring Mediter-
ranean and west Asian
cultures, richly illuminating
biblical history, archaeology,
and ancient ways of life. Two
lectures will be given at the
Center in conjunction with the
Israelite Antiquities exhibi-
tion: Thursday, September 29,
7:30 p.m., "Ancient Roman
Life as Illustrated Through
Everyday Utilitarian Objects;"
and Thursday, October 20,
7:30 p.m., "Recent Archaeo-
logy of the Holy Land."
Both exhibits run September
8-October 30 at the Art and

TEL AVIV (JTA) Two
cases of polio, in a 26-year-old
woman and a baby, have been
diagnosed in Israel.
Both are from the town of Or
Akiva, near Caesarea.
The outbreak is reportedly
the highest incidence of infan-
tile paralysis to be found in one
place within a short time in
many years. Health Ministry
sources said that one or two,
but no more than four, cases of
polio are still found in Israel
each year.
Otherwise, the disease has
been virtually wiped out in
Israel as well as throughout
the Western world.
Reagan
To Attend
Museum
Ceremony
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
President Reagan will likely
attend the U.S. Holocaust
Museum's Oct. 5 cornerstone-
laying ceremony, U.S. Holo-
caust Memorial Council
sources told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency.
The ceremony has been
scheduled because the Depart-
ment of Interior earlier this
month approved the design
specifications for the museum,
which is scheduled to open
here in 1990.
"This was the final license
we needed" before construc-
tion could begin, explained
William Lowenberg, vice
chairman of the council.
An informed source at the
memorial council said that
there is a "superb possibility"
that President Reagan will
attend the cornerstone cere-
mony, although it is not final.
roofan attended an October
1985 preliminary ground-
breaking ceremony.
Lowenberg said that $60
million of the museum's $140
million fund-raising goal has
been raised so far. Money is
being raised for the museum
itself as well as for "perpetual
endowment funds" to main-
tain the building and staffing.
The two polio victims are not
related and were never in
contact. The adult patient is an
immigrant born abroad.
The Health Ministry has
already begun vaccinations for
all residents, workers and visi-
tors to Or Akiva.
All children from birth up to
age 18 are to be given oral
vaccinations at special centers
set up in schools, infant care
clinics and community centers.
Adults between the ages of
18 and 40 will receive booster
injection shots.
Or Akiva officials said the
outbreak could probably be
traced to a sewage farm some
miles north of the town.

a restriction that bars him
from traveling further than 25
miles from UN headquarters
in New York. That would
make it impossible for Arafat
to address the press club.
U.S. Jewish groups have
expressed disappointment in
the press club invitation, which
was issued Aug. 17.

ed Cross Admits Holocaust Failure

By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
International Committee of
the Red Cross has admitted, in
, special communication to The
Jerusalem Post, that it could
lave saved more Jews from
le Nazis.
The statement was issued in
Jeneva and signed by its
lirector general, Jacques
loreillon.
It was released especially for
>ublication in the Post in
Response to a report by the
Israeli daily's London corre-
spondent, David Horowitz,
Dublished under the headline
'Red Cross knew in '42 of
ftiassacre of Jews, but kept
Jilent."
I The ICRC admits for the
nrst time that it could prob-
ably have save more Jewish
lives than it did, particularly in
Countries where the Nazis did
Aot maintain total control,
much as Hungary and Romania.
The Post reported that the
IICRC itself hired Swiss
'rofessor Jean-Claude Favez
Mo investigate the matter,
'ollowing a six-year study of
50,000 Red Cross documents,
favez wrote, "The ICRC knew
Irhat was happening that is
uite clear. (But) it did not
are confront the Germans."
The ICRC's failure to
ispect Nazi concentration
amps has been reported
B>efore, including one inspec-
tion for which the Nazis
ftropped up a false front at
yheresienstadt, in Czechoslo-
akia.
The camp was presented as
laving healthful conditions,
id the Red Cross fulfilled the
Jazi illusion by only visiting
le camp's orchestra and care-
Uy prepared children's facil-
ities.
Moreover, vans used by the
Jazis for the mobile extermin-
ition of Jews were painted
nth a red cross on the side,
thereby leading people to
jelieve that the vans were
ctually Red Cross vehicles.
Favez has written a book on
the subject of the ICRC's
failure, titled "Silent
fitness," and has appeared in
BBC documentary on the
Subject seen in England.
Conclusion Challenged
However, Favez's conclusion
/as challenged by Moreillon,
fho hired him, prior to the
publication in the Post of the
first article. At the time,
loreillon had said he did not
slieve an appeal would have
lelped Jews.
The Simon Wiesenthal
Center in Los Angeles criti-
cized Moreillon for defending
the Red Cross in the BBC
documentary.

Palestinians Lose on Appeal
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Israel's supreme court
rejected an appeal by a Pales-
tinian activist under adminis-
trative detention, foiling
another attempt to use Israel's
legal system to counter
security measures.
The High Court of Justice
ruled against Feisal al-
Husseini, 48, who was
detained a month ago under an
administrative arrest order,
after being identified by the
authorities as a key leader of
Al Fatah in Jerusalem. Fatah
is the military arm of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion controlled by Yasir
Arafat.
Husseini demanded that he
be allowed to view a secret file
in his case, saying that he was
unable to present a defense as
long as he was unclear about
the charges against him. He
also asked that the legal
proceedings be held openly,
and not "in camera," as has
been the practice until now.
But the court rejected both
appeals, citing "security
reasons."
The court then met to review
a separate appeal against the
six-month detention itself, the
third Husseini has been under
in 18 months. The court has
not issued its decision, but it
has never annulled an order of
administrative arrest.
Administrative detention
orders have become one of the
major tools in the authorities'
attempts to curb the Pales-
tinian uprising. Since the
beginning of the unrest, more
than 3,000 Palestinians have
been put in detention camps
without trial.
Administrative detainees
have limited means to chal-
lenge the arrest orders, short
of appealing to the High
Court. Each arrest order must
be approved by a military
judge, and in very few cases
have the judges reversed
them.
Likewise, Palestinians who
received deportation orders
have been reluctant to work
within the Israeli legal system,
arguing that it is biased
against them.
Only recently, with the mass
deportation order against the
25 Palestinians, did this tactic
change. Earlier, lawyers on
behalf of the 25 vowed to press
their appeals to the High
Court.
In response to this change of
strategy, some politicians have
proposed enacting legislation
that would render the High
Court of Justice off-limits to
residents of the administered
territories.

Max Fisher Tells Jews To
Join Republican Party
o.o
AN EARLY &AUOT
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
NEW ORLEANS (JTA) -
Max Fisher, the dean of
Jewish Republicans, made a
personal appeal to American
Jews from the podium of the
Republican National Conven-
tion to end their traditional
support for Democratic presi-
dential candidates.
"I say to you, my fellow
American Jews, come join
with me, and with this great
(Republican) political party
which shares your values, and
which has labored steadily to
earn your trust," Fisher said.
"The Republican Party's
interests are your interests, its
goals are your goals."
Fisher, honorary chairman
of the National Jewish Repub-
lican Coalition, was one of
several representatives of
ethnic groups who addressed
the opening session of the
convention.
They were there to urge the
members of their communities
to vote for Vice President
George Bush for president this
November.
Fisher said that during his
40 years as an active Repub-
lican, he has watched the GOP
become "an inclusive party"
and "reach out to American
Jews in many ways."
"At the same time, I have
seen the Democratic Party
the party of so many of our
immigrant forbears move
away from the needs and
concerns of American Jews,"
the Detroit industrialist and
philanthropist declared.
He attacked the platform
adopted by the Democrats in
Atlanta last month for not
condemning anti-Semitism or
the U.N. resolution equating
Zionism with racism, and for
not supporting Soviet Jewry
or rejecting a Palestinian
state.
"The Republican Party will
not support an independent
Palestinian state because it is
wrong," Fisher said. "Wrong
not only for Israel, but also
wrong for America."
He said the Reagan adminis-
tration has supported Israel
because of "shared strategic
interests. For Republicans,
commitment to Israel is not a
numbers game, it is a pillar of
American foreign policy."
Golan Film Draws
Warm Reception
By MICHAEL SOLOMON
MONTREAL (JTA) A
warm ovation was given to the
premiere here of "Hannah's
War," a film about Hannah
Senesh, the young Hungarian-
born Jewish woman who was
captured and executed by
Hungarian Nazis after para-
chuting into wartime Eastern
Europe to try to save the lives
of downed British airmen.
About 1,500 spectators
attended the screening at this
year's Montreal International
Film Festival. They gave a
loud applause to the film's
writer and director, Israeli-
American producer Menahem
Golan, who said he repre-
sented not only the United
States but the Israeli film
industry as well.
The two-and-a-half-hour film
depicts the life and death-by-
execution of Senesh, the
Budapest native who
emigrated to Palestine at the
age of 17, and who at the age
of 22 was sent on a mission by
the British Royal Air Force to
help British airmen escape out
of occupied Europe.
Together with other Jewish
volunteers from Palestine,
Senesh managed to evade Nazi
troops jn occupied Yugoslavia
and re-enter Hungary, where
her mother, Catherine, had
avoided deportation.
Senesh was unaware of her
mother's disposition at the
time she smuggled herself
back to Hungary. She had a
personal dream of somehow
saving her mother and other
Jews to escape the Nazis.
In the film, Hanna is port-
rayed by Dutch actress
Maruschka Detmers. Amer-
ican actress Ellen Burstyn
plays Hanna's mother. Other
members of the cast include
British actors David Warner,
Donald Pleasence and
Anthony Andrews.
In an interview with the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency,
Golan, whose Cannon Films is
based in Los Angeles, said that
the Israeli media gave positive
marks to his movie. He said
the film remains "90 percent
true to fact."
Golan said he refrained from
depicting Senesh with her
teeth missing after the torture
and beatings she received in
prison in Budapest. He said he
felt the audiences would have
recoiled from such vivid
portrayal, although biogra-
phies of Senesh include this
detail.
the
Two Mideast Experts Agree War With Syria Probable
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Two
Israeli experts on the Middle
East, speaking at a public
meeting here, have come to
the conclusion that Syria is
preparing for an eventual
confrontation with Israel.
Brig. Gen. (Res.) Aharon
Levran, editor of Middle East
Military Balance, a publica-
tion of the Jaffee Center for
Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv
University, and Dr. Yossi
Olmert, head of the Syrian and
Lebanese desk at the univer-
sity's Dayan Center for Middle
East and African Studies, both
estimated that although the
chances of a Syrian-initiated
war with Israel in the near
future is slight, Syria is none-
theless bent on some stage of
war with the Jewish state in
the future.
Levran, a former deputy
commander at the National
Defense College, said that the
Syrians "are doing everything
to prepare themselves for war,
but I would risk saying that I
doubt they will initiate a war
with Israel so long as they are
alone and without an Arab
coalition partner, particularly
Iraq and Jordan."
He said that "while Syria is
not planning to embark on a
premeditated war with Israel
in the short term, this does not
mean that a circumstantial
war cannot occur between
Israel and Syria."
Levran pointed out several
"friction points" in
Lebanon, in regard to Syria's
support for terrorism, and in
the Golan Heights.
In fact, while leaders of the
mainstream Palestine Libera-
tion Organization were
meeting at their headquarters
in Tunis to consider plans to
establish a Palestinian state in
the West Bank and Gaza, the
Syrian press was dismissing
such an attempt as "a big
conspiracy against the Pales-
tinian cause' because such a
move would lead to a recogni-
tion of Israel.
Arafat Backers Tossed Out
Syria and its Palestinian
allies have systematically
thrown adherents of PLO
leader Yasir Arafat out of
their Lebanese enclaves. The
guerrilla alliance opposed to
Arafat is based in Damascus.
Olmert told questioners
during the question-and-
answer session that "Syria
would prefer quiet in the area
until the upcoming Lebanese
elections, so as not to give
Israel an excuse to intervene
in them."
Levran voiced concern over
Syria's possible deployment
for a future war, because Syria
has made numerous improve-
ments in the sphere of conven-
tional warfare, he said, partic-
ularly in enhancing its ground-
to-air forces.
Levran added, however, that
Damascus has yet to draw
even with Israel's military
strength. He noted that
Syria's decision to equip its
Scud surface-to-surface
missiles with chemical
warheads was prompted by
the Syrian air force's inability
to contend with the Israeli air
force.
Levran said the Syrians
have emphasized unconven-
tional means of warfare
because "they know that
Israel is much more advanced
in nuclear potential.
Children of Nazis Gain Dutch Aid
By HENRIETTA BOAS
AMSTERDAM (JTA) The Netherlands Ministry of Social
Welfare has awarded a modest subsidy to a group that deals with
the special psychological needs of children of former Dutch
Nazis.
The ministry granted the funds to the Herkenning ("recogni-
tion") organization, which claims the offspring of Nazis suffer
psychological problems because they are seen by others as the
children of traitors.
The money will be used to train professional psychotherapists
to help these people cope with their specific problem. These
children will not, however, qualify as first- or second-generation
victims, as do such children of Nazi victims, who are in certain
cases entitled to permanent or temporary government benefits.
The director of the Jewish mental health foundation here has
stated that he does not object to this subsidy.

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor:
Having completed the
course "Wisdom of the Body"
conducted by Mrs. Gertrude
Friedman at the Jewish
Community Center, I was so
impressed with the informa-
tion that was made available to
us that I decided to let others
know my feelings. Our
instructor, Gert (as we call
her) was outstanding. She has
an exceptional knowledge of
the subject and is aware of the
remarkable advances being
made in the fields of medicine
and nutrition. She has the
ability to make a difficult
subject understandable. That
ability is the essence of a good
teacher.
All of the students, being
Senior Citizens, were hungry
for the information on the
subject. We all expressed a
desire for a healthy life. It is
through courses such as the
Community College is spon-
soring at the Jewish
Community Center that we
can learn what we should do.
My wife and I have enrolled
for the new course starting
August 10 on "Medicine in the
Next Century." I am certain
that this, too, will be an
enlightening experience.
We wish to thank the Jewish
Community Center for
' providing such courses tor
Senior Citizens through the
Palm Beach Community
College, and especially witn
such an excellent instructor.
Sincerely.
Abe Zeitz,

JCDS Opens With Largest Enrollment Ever
1 D D
The Chaplain Aides of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County met on Tuesday, September
6 at 2 p.m. to discuss the aides' placement in over
25 nursing and retirement home facilities in the
county. During the discussion, the aides stressed
the current urgency in recruiting new chaplain
aides to bring the Jewish traditions to an ever
increasing number of nursing home residents.
Neil Newstein was the guest speaker at the
meeting. He outlined the newly established
Alzheimer Caregiver program established
through the Jewish Family and Children's
Service.
President's Coffee Welcomes
Newstein of JF&CS

(l-R) Students listen to Dr. Nissim Elbaz during the first day assembly; Kindergarteners Natalie
Rothman (center) and Amy Riss (right) talk to a new friend before school.
"We control our destiny. We
set our goals and challenges,
and it is up to us to achieve
them. Everyone here has a
special talent, a unique gift.
Together we will become a
mighty force in this commu-
nity." These were just some of
the comments made by Dr.
Nissim M. Elbaz, Executive
Director of the Jewish
Community Day School on
opening day, Monday, August
29th.
The school began its 16th
year of operation with 236
children, the largest enroll-
YAD Leaders In Training
ment in the school's history.
With two classes in kinder-
garten, first, and second
grades, the enrollment repre-
sents a 6% increase over last
year.
School ran very smoothly for
the first day. Over the summer
the campus was refurbished:
Buildings were painted, the
grounds were beautified, new
flooring replaced worn
carpeting in the Merkaz (All-
purpose building) and repair
work was done wherever
necessary. Many parents
commented on the bright,
clean campus.
Students enjoyed their first
day back, greeting old friends
and meeting new ones. Ever-
yone, teachers and students
alike, wasted no time in
getting back to the business of
teaching and learning.
On Thursday, September 29
at 9:30 a.m., Neil Newstein,
Executive Director of Jewish
Family and Children's Service,
will discuss "Our Everchan-
ging Community" during
Jewish Federation's annual
President's Coffee, to be held
at the Jewish Community Day
School in West Palm Beach.
Sponsored by the Women's
Division of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County,
the coffee will also provide an
opportunity for the presidents
of all the Jewish women's
organizations in the Palm
Beaches to hear a preview of
this year's Educational
Forum. Through the Presi-
dent's Coffee, the Women's
Division reaches out to all the
Jewish women's organizations
in the community to get to
know them better and invite
them to become more involved
in the Federation.
In announcing the guest
speaker, President's Coffee
Chairperson, Mollie
Fitterman, said, "Since Neil
Newstein has been Executive
Director of the JF&CS, the
agency has expanded tremen-
dously, offering important
services to many people in the
community. It's important
that we inform more people in
the community about the agen-

Attorney Plans
Cain "Trial"
ROME (JTA) With the
participation of legal experts,
biblical scholars, specialized
historians and even a rabbi,
Venice lawyer Domenico
Carponi Schittar plans to
stage a trial Dec. 18, to deter-
mine whether biblical villain
Cain was really guilty of
murdering his brother Abel.
Cain, whose crime is
recounted in the Old Testa-
ment book of Genesis, has
become with the millennia a
symbol of violence and evil.
In the trial, Cain will symbol-
ically be the defendant.
Experts will try to reconstruct
what is probably the world's
most famous murder, and will
discuss the possibilities of
what may or may not have
really happened.
Participants are expected to
include various magistrates,
an expert in ancient Semitic
languages, biblical scholars
and historians and Rome
Rabbi Riccardo Di Segni.
Carponi Schittar said one of
the aims of the trial is to
promote studies on the early
chapters of Genesis.

Reflections on YomKippur
A Time For Self-Appraisal
By RABBI SHLOMO EZAGUI
Chabad House-Lubavitcher
On these days at the
threshold of the beginning of
the new year, may it bring
blessings to us all, we must
answer a call for self-
evaluation, in relation to the
year that has ended, and in
the light of this self-appraisal
make the necessary resolu-
tions for the coming year.
Such a "balance sheet" can
be valid only if the evaluation
of the full extent of one's
powers and opportunities was
a correct one. Only then can
one truly regret, in a commea-
surable degree, the missed
opportunities, and resolve to
utilize one's capacities to the
fullest extent from now on.
The period of time from
Rosh Hashanah to Yom
Kippur is not only the occasion
which demands spiritual stock-
taking in general, but it also
begs for a profound inner
appreciation of the tremen-
dous capacities which one
possesses as a human being
the crown of creation, and as a
Jew whom the Creator has
given His Divine Law of Life
(Toras Chayyim). For Rosh
Hashanah is the day when Man
was created.
Adam was given the power
to conquer the whole world
and to rule over it, on land, sea
and in the air, and he was
enjoined to do so; this was his
task.
How was this "world
conquest" to be attained, and
what is the purpose and true
meaning of it? This is what our
Sages tell us and teach us in
this regard;
When G-D created Adam,
his soul his Divine image
permeated and irradiated his
whole being, by virtue of which
he became the ruler over the
entire Creation.
The "world conquest" which
was given to man as his task
and mission in life, is to elevate
the whole of Nature, including
the beasts and animals, to the
service of true humanity,
humanity permeated and illu-
minated by the Divine Image,
by the soul which is veritably a
part of G-D above, so that the
whole of Creation will realize
that G-D is our Maker.
Needless to say, before a
man sets out to conquer the
world, he must first conquer
himself, through the subjuga-
tion of the "earthly" and
"beastly" in his own nature.
This attained through actions
which strictly accord with the
directives of the Torah, the
Law of Life the practical
guide in every day living, so
that the material becomes
permeated and illuminated
with the light of the One G-D,
our G-D.
G-D created one man and on
this single person on earth He
imposed the said duty and
task. Herein lies the profound,
yet clear, directive, namely,
that one man each and every
human being is potentially
capable of "conquering the
world." If a person does not
fulfill his task, and does not
utilize his inestimable divine
powers it is not merely a
personal loss and failure, but
something that affects the
destiny of the whole world.
In these days of introspec-
tion, we are duty-bound to
reflect that each and every one
of us through carrying out
the instructions of the Creator
of the World which are
contained in His Torah has
the capacity of conquering
worlds. Everyone must there-
fore ask himself how much
have they accomplished in this
direction, and to what extent
have they failed, so that they
can make the proper resolu-
tions for the coming year.
G-D, Who looks into the
heart, on seeing the determin-
ation behind these good resolu-
tions, will send His blessing for
their realization in the fullest
measure in joy and gladness
of heart and affluence, materi-
ally and spiritually.
With the blessing KETIVA
VACHATIMA TOVA for a
happy and sweet year.

Israel NeWSbriefs 'Israelis/Palestinians MustNegotiate'
Finland To Sell Oil To Israel
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Finland may soon begin selling
excess Soviet oil to Israel, according to a report in the
Israeli daily Haaretz.
According to the paper, an agreement to this effect has
already been signed between the two countries, though the
subject is being blacked out by both sides due to the
sensitivities involved.
Israel's Energy Minister Moshe Shahal visited Finland
last year and met with his Finnish counterpart in order to
discuss the issue.
The paper wrote that a commercial agreement has now
been signed between Finland and the Soviet Union, by
which Finland will obtain 4.5 million tons of Soviet oil in
excess of its own needs. The USSR will in turn permit the
Finns to sell the excess oil on the free market.
Fires Destroyed 37,500 Acres
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Since the beginning of April, there
have been 1,400 fires in Israel that have destroyed 2,500
acres of planted forests, more than 10,000 acres of natural
forest and 25,000 acres of grazing land and uncultivated
fields.
According to the Jewish National Fund, there has been a
decline in such incidents in recent weeks. However, last
week there were 23 fires that destroyed 250 acres of
natural forest land across Israel.
Squad to Erase Abusive Graffiti
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The Tel Aviv municipality has set up
an "intifada commando" team to erase as quickly as
possible vituperative graffiti scribbled around the city.
Meir Doron, the municipality's deputy director-general,
said that the team had removed 60 abusive slogans such as
"slaughter the Jews."
Two Synagogues Uncovered
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Two synagogues from the Talmudic
period have been uncovered in the southern Hebron Hills
region.
One of the ancient synagogues was found at Tel Maon,
between Carmel and Susiya, and the other at the Anim
ruins, located in the Yatir Forest.
The recently completed excavations were a joint project
of the Kfar Etzion Field School in Maon; the West Bank
civil administrations archeology staff officer; the Educa-
tion Ministry's Antiques and Museums Department; and
the Jewish National Fund.
Shivia Ready For Nuclear Plant
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) A 10-year, $10 million study
conducted by the Israel Electric Company has determined
that Shivia, located in the Northern Negev, is suitable for
the establishment of Israel's first nuclear power station.
The report said that the area is ready once the decision is
made for such a project.

Top Arab Official Speaks At Temple
By LORI SCHULMAN
To achieve peace, the Israeli
government and Palestinian
leadership must negotiate
their positions, according to
Muhamed Massarwa, Israel's
consul general in Atlanta and
the highest ranking Arab in
the Israeli government.
During a recent visit to West
Palm Beach, Massarwa met
with the local press and
answered congregants' ques-
tions in a roundtable discus-
sion following Friday night
services at Temple Judea.
In a discussion on the
November Israeli elections,
the proposed two state solu-
tion to the Palestinian upris-
ings, Hussein's recent West
Bank divestiture and the issue
of Israel's safety, Massarwa
expressed the views of "one
who is on top of a mountain
and can see down all sides."
"I can see and understand
the Israelis concerns and fears
for their safety," he began,
"but I can also see the Pales-
tinian's suffering. There are
many angles to this conflict."
According to Massarwa, the
Middle East has reached a
crossroads in the conflict
between Arab and Jew. New
voices are being heard in the
Palestinian leadership,
partially as a result of
Hussein's recent divestiture
from the West Bank, he said,
and the Israeli elections will be
most critical for the future of
the state as well as the region.
"This gives the Israeli govern-
ment and the Palestinians
even more responsibility to
decide their own fate,"
Massarwa projected. "Now
more than ever there exists an
opportunity for dialogue
between the two."
A Palestinian, Mr.
Massarwa holds a law degree
from Hebrew University in
Jerusalem, where he served as
Secretary of the Arab
Students Association. He
currently works with both
Arab and Jewish clientele in
Hadera, Israel. He said he
feels comfortable among both
and mentioned that during his
recent visit to Israel, he visited
areas of the West Bank.
When asked to comment
about the recent focus on
Israel's safety, Massarwa
replied, "American Jews must
Among his wide activities in
the Israeli political and social
sphere, he served as a legal
advisor in the Arab
Chairman's Association of
local municipalities and as
head of the Advisory Council
to the Ministry of Labor in
Israel.
Massarwa has been Israel's
consul general for the South-
eastern Region since 1987.
Educated in Israeli public
schools, the 46-year-old Arab
ran as number six in Ezer

demonstrate their support for
Israel by visiting and involving
themselves in Israeli life now.
It's very safe to be there,
there's absolutely no danger."
He also discussed his feel-
ings about the media coverage
the Palestinian "intifada" has
received in the United States.
"It was much easier to sympa-
thize with Israel when they
were perceived as the
victims," he said. "But now
the Palestinians look like
David and the Israelis like
Goliath. I don't believe the
media coverage is balanced,"
he continued. "It just shows
the news in the territories and
not the balance of the whole
situation."
When asked to comment on
his appointment, Massarwa
said, "I'm both an Arab and an
Israeli. I've more or less
fulfilled my aspirations in the
Arab sphere. We, of the
younger generation of Israeli
Arabs have been demanding,
for some time now, that we be
given opportunities for full
integration into all aspects of
Israel. I see my appointment in
the Foreign Service as just
such an opportunity."

Arafat Discusses Plan With U.N. Chief, But Not The Press
By TAMAR LEVY
GENEVA (JTA) Yasir
Arafat told United Nations
Secretary-General Javier
Perez de Cuellar on Saturday
that a government in exile is
one of the ideas he plans to
& resent when the Palestine
ational Council meets this
month in Algiers.
But the Palestine Liberation
Organization chairman
appeared to be more cautious
than some of his aides in
discussing details of the plan
for statehood.
The normally publicity-
hungry Arafat surprised the
Geneva press corps by
canceling a news conference
scheduled to take place after
his 90-minute meeting with the
secretary-general. Instead of
making a public appearance,
the PLO chairman was report-
edly whisked out a back door
of the European headquarters
ZOA Operations
To Undergo
Restructuring
NEW YORK Milton S.
Shapiro, President, of the
Zionist Organization of
America, announced that the
ZOA would undertake a major
restructuring of its operations.
After an analysis of data
gathered from key leaders at
special retreats held in Dallas,
Baltimore and New York
during the past year, a Presi-
dential ad hoc study committee
recommended.
The restructuring plan
involves the centralization of
communications, public affairs
programming and fund raising
support services at its national
headquarters in New York,
and the use of development
specialists and community
coordinators to direct and
support ZOA Regional and
District operations across the

"The plan evolved over
several months of reviews and
carefully considered alterna-
tives," said Shapiro. "It is
designed to improve the orga-
nizational program effective-
ness, service to its member-
ship, and reduce administra-
tive costs, through the use of
state of the art communica-
tions and the more efficient
use of key personnel in the
National office."
ZOA is an issue-oriented
educational organization
whose work toward the crea-
tion of the state of Israel and
its political support in the
United States since 1898 is
legendary. In the decades that
followed, it has been consulted
by all levels of American
government on matters of
concern to the Jewish people
and the state of Israel. It has
spawned such organizations as
AIPAC and Israel Bonds,
opened Christian-Zionist plat-
forms, opposed arm sales to
hostile Arab states.
ZOA is the foremost organi-
zation advocating Jewish unity
and challenging those who
publicly and unwisely are crit-
ical of Israel and its leaders.
Recently, it has focused the
public's attention on anti-
Israel media bias and
campaigned to close PLO
offices in Washington and
New York.

Perez de Cuellar, for his
part, made it clear that the
meeting took place at Arafat's
request.
A statement issued by the
PLO reported that the discus-
sion focused on the secretary-
general's efforts to secure
compliance with various U.N.
declarations. Arafat expressed
concern over alleged Israeli
acts of aggression against
Palestine refugee camps and
villages in southern Lebanon.
The PLO chairman was also
said to have expressed his
organization's desire to partic-
ipate in an international peace
conference on the Middle East.
Israel has opposed PLO partic-
ipation in such a conference,
though the government is split
on whether to back a confer-
ence that would include a joint
Jordanian-Palestinian delega-
tion.
Arafat was vague in
discussing details of PLO
plans to declare an inde-
pendent state in the West and
Gaza Strip and set up a
government in exile. He is
apparently wary of the reac-
tion of more militant factions
in the PLO, which see the idea
as an abandonment of
the PLO's armed struggle
against Israel.
The outlines of the proposal
were described in interviews
given by Bassam Abu-Sharif, a
close aide to Arafat. Sharif
told The New York Times and
the Associated Press that the
Palestine National Council
could pass a resolution, signed
by Arafat with the approval of
the various PLO factions, that
would declare a state and
recognize Israeli on the basis
of the U.N. partition plan of
1947.

"They will definitely know
they've participated in a

our goal."
