Bush, Dukakis Vie For Jewish Votes
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
BALTIMORE (JTA) Vice
President George Bush and
Gov. Michael Dukakis have
both rejected the concept of a
Palestinian state, and have
pledged to make the Middle
East peace process a high
priority if elected president.
In speeches delivered less
than two hours apart to the
34th biennial convention
of B'nai B'rith International
here, the two presidential
candidates also soundly con-
demned anti-Semitism and all
forms of racism.
This condemnation was
more than routine since at the
Republican National Conven-
tion in New Orleans last
month, Jewish Republicans
had charged that while the
Republican platform rejected
anti-Semitism, the Democratic
platform was silent on the
issue.
Dukakis noted that on Nov.
9, the day after the presiden-
tial election, the 50th anniver-
sary of Kristallnacht will be
observed, marking the day
when the Nazis broke the
windows of Jewish homes and
stores throughout Germany
and Austria.
Dukakis said this event,
which inaugurated the Holo-
caust, was greeted with indif-
ference by the world.
"It is up to all of us, public
officials and private citizens,
to speak out forcefully against
anti-Semitism, racism, and
every form of bigotry, whether
in Boston, Chicago, Los
Angeles or New York, or
anywhere else in America,"
the Massachusetts Democrat
said.
"That is a responsiblity we
all share, but it is especially
the responsibility of the presi-
dent of the United States."
Bush declared that as the
United States approaches the
next century, "it's time to
leave the tired old bigotry
baggage behind us. There is no
room in this country for racism
or for antiSemitism. Not in
New York, not in Chicago, not
anywhere in this great
country."
The Republican candidate
stressed that "it's the duty of
every American, especially
those who aspire to leadership,
to condemn it wherever and
whenever it appears. I
condemn anti-Semitism now
and I will always condemn it."
Bush said he will continue
the Reagan administration's
support for the Justice Depart-
ment's Office of Special Inves-
tigations, which hunts down
and prosecutes Nazi war crimi-
nals who entered the United
States illegally.
The statement on the OSI
was not in Bush's prepared
text, and was apparently
inserted because of a story
appearing in the Washington
Jewish Week regarding the
composition of the Bush '88
Coalition of American Nation-
alities, an ethnic coalition
working for the Bush
campaign.
The B'nai B'rith convention
has since 1974 become a tradi-
tional forum for the Demo-
cratic and Republican presi-
dential candidates to outline
their positions on issues of
Jewish concern.
While Bush was frequently
applauded, the reception by
the 1,200 convention delegates
was louder and warmer for
Dukakis.
Both candidates stressed
that peace can only come about
through direct negotiations,
and both promised to prevent
any imposed solution on Israel.
Dukakis said that if elected,
one of his first steps will be to
appoint a special Middle East
negotiator with instructions to
"use every ounce of your
energy to convince Arab
leaders to negotiate peace with
Israel."
"Even as strategic coopera-
tion with Israel has gone
forward, we have forged a
stronger relationship with
Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait,
and other (Persian) Gulf
states," Bush said.
He said this demonstrated
that "we can work construc-
tively with those states and
not diminish our relations with
Israel. This is in our interest
and it is also in Israel's
interest."
But Dukakis noted that the
Reagan administration has
"sold AWACS to Saudi
Arabia, Mavericks to Kuwait,
Stingers to Bahrain and
billions of additional dollars
worth of sophisticated arms to
Arab countries that refuse to
make peace with Israel."
He said that while Bush and
his vice presidential running

'Community Federation and
the Jewish Community Cen-
ter. At the Federation, she

sion's High School Campaign,
the Community Relations
Speakers' Bureau and various

tional and leadership
programs and helped develop

the Jewish Federation from a
Federation agency, the J.C.C.
in Ft. Lauderdale, where she
was the Director of Young
Singles and Tweens. Ms.

communal career in 1986 as an
English teacher at the Moshe
Sharett High School in
Nazareth Illit, Israel. She
worked with high school
students assisting the perma-
nent classroom staff, tutoring
individuals, conducting small
discussion groups and
overseeing the teaching

directions for the program,
developed a marketing plan
and coordinated speaking
engagements. In her position
at the Jewish Community
Center from 1986-1987, Ms.
Meyers staffed a weekly senior
adult lecture series, helped
coordinate a Jewish Book
Month and a community wide
Israel Independence Day.
As Campaign Associate, Ms.
Meyers will help to coordinate
mini-missions to the agencies,
worker training, New Gifts de-
velopment, as well as staffing
the Israel Task Force and

Hebrew University. Ms.
Meyers received her B.A. in
psychology and Judaic studies
from Emory University in
Atlanta, GA and her M.S.S.A.
from Case Western Reserve
University in Cleveland, OH.
"The Jewish Federation has
grown tremendously in the
past few years and it requires
the kind of quality that Mr.
Epstein, Ms. Garber and Ms.
Meyers will add to our already
excellent staff," said Jeffrey
Klein, Executive Director.
"With the dedication and
expertise found in both our
new and more seasoned
professionals, we are well
prepared to meet the diverse
and enourmous needs of the
Jewish community."

Goals Of YAD Campaign Training
The Young Adult Division is
expecting many new volun-
teers to participate in the 1989
YAD Campaign, according to
Marty List, YAD Vice Presi-
dent and Campaign Chair-
person. To prepare both old
and new volunteers for the
coming year, a Campaign
Strategy and Planning Session
will be held on Sunday,
October 2, 10 a.m. at the
Jewish Federation office.
The Campaign training
session will be conducted by a
national UJA trainer and will
preview the 1989 Campaign
Marty List
plan for the Young Adult Divi-
sion. During the session,
volunteers will participate in
training workshops on tech-
niques of fundraising, with
presentations, discussions and
role playing. Members of the
YAD Campaign committee,
Campaign Cabinet and others
who are interested are invited
to attend.
The goal of the initial
training session is to get as
many new volunteers as
possible active in the '89
Campaign and excited about
participating, said List. The
Campaign strategy session is
designed to stimulate partici-
pants and educate them about
the goals of the Campaign as
well as to allow them to
develop an active role in
shaping YAD fundraising.
A primary goal for the 1989
Campaign is to reach people
regularly involved in the social
aspects of the Young Adult
Division but not yet active in
fundraising. "We'd like to
reach as many new givers as
possible this year while giving
equal attention to quality
upgrades," said List. "We
need to educate our volunteers
to the needs of the Jewish
community, both locally and
worldwide, and show how our
Federation's goals fit into the
larger picture."
This is List's second year as
Campaign Chair of YAD and
as a member of the Campaign
Cabinet. He became a member
of the Jewish Federation
Board last year and has sat on
the Planning and Allocations
Committee since 1986. He is
also a member of the Jewish
Community Day School Board
and Temple Israel Board. This
summer he and his wife,
Karen, were two co-chairs of
the YAD Mission to Israel and
he was appointed to the
National Young
Leadership Men's Cabinet this
year. List has been a Super
Sunday volunteer for many
years.
A graduate of the University
of Florida with a BSBA, List is
President of List Capital
Corp., a real estate develop-
ment and investment firm m
Palm Beach.

Jordan_______
Still 'Essential'
NEW YORK The
director-general of Israel's
Foreign Ministry says that
despite King Hussein's policy
of separating from the Pales-
tinians and the West Bank,
there can be "no solution" to
the Palestinian issue and the
question of Israel's permanent
boundaries without the full
participation of Jordan.
Avraham Tamir told the
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations that King
Hussein acted out of "frustra-
tion that the high expectations
resulting from his talks in Lon-
don with then-Prime Minister
Peres two years ago had led
only to stalemate."
He added: "King Hussein
knows and we know that
Israel's boundaries cannot be
settled without the participa-
tion of the country that shares
the longest border with Israel,
and that the fate of the Pales-
tinians cannot be determined
without the participation of
the only state in the world that
has a Palestinian majority."
Tamir, a retired Army
general and former advisor to
Ezer Weizman, made these
main points in his talk and in
reply to questions from Presi-
dents Conference members:
Only an international
peace conference under the
auspices of the UN Security
Council, bringing together
Israel, Arab states and a joint
Palestinian-Jordanian delega-
tion as proposed by Secretary
of State Shultz, can break the
procedural deadlock by
providing a springboard for
direct Arab-Israel negotia-
tions.
Such a conference is neces-
sary to serve as a starting
point for substantive talks to
bridge the vast gaps that
separate the various plans and
approaches to the Arab-Israel
problem among them, the
Reagan plan, the Allon plan,
the Fahd plan and other pro-
posals for resolving the Arab-
Israel dispute.
The most desirable result
of such talks, from Israel's
point of view, would be the
establishment of a Palestinian-
Jordanian confederation
pledged to live in peace with
Israel. No other solution, such
as an independent Palestinian
state or annexation of the
territories by Israel, is either
practical or desirable.
Israel must keep an "open
door" to all moderate elements
among the Palestinians. "The
real issue is not whom you talk
to but on what basis those
talks proceed. Thus, a PLO
that remains committed to the
liquidation of Israel and the
tactics of terror cannot be a
partner in political negotia-
tions."
The problem is not to find
a replacement for the PLO
"Israel cannot bring this
about" but how to start a
process that will lead to a
change in the leadership of
those who claim to speak for
the Palestinians.
Israel and Egypt share
common views concerning the
rise of Moslem fundamen-
talism in Gaza there is no
problem in the West Bank
and are working to prevent it.
Eban: Europeans Should Pressure PLO
By RUTH E. GRUBER
ROME (JTA) The Pales-
tine Liberation Organization
can decisevely influence
Israel's parliamentary elec-
tions Nov. 1, according to
Labor Party Knesset member
Abba Eban.
"A clear declaration, the
recognition of Israel and the
renunciation of terrorism (by
the PLO) would help the Labor
Party," Eban told reporters
after meetings here with
Foreign Minister Giulio
Andreotti and Socialist Party
leader Bettino Craxi.
Eban, a former foreign
minister and presently
chairman of the Knesset
Foreign Affairs and Defense
Committee, is on a mission on
behalf of Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres, leader of the
Labor Party.
He is visiting Western
Europe capitals to persuade
national leaders not to endorse
purported plans by the PLO to
declare an independent Pales-
tinian state in the West Bank
and to set up a government in
exile.
He is also urging Western
European countries to pres-
sure the PLO to recognize
Israel. The labor Party is
"ready to negotiate with any
Palestinians disposed to recog-
nize Israel and renounce
terrorism," Eban said.
He challenged PLO chief
Yasir Arafat "to find the
courage to make a unilateral
gesture" toward Israel. If
fsrael did not respond, "there
would be time to do an about-
face," Eban said.

Rural Jews Get A Lift
NORTHWOOD, N.H. (JTA)
- The work of the Para-Rabbi
Foundation, which provides
rabbinic training for lay people
in isolated New England
communities unable to afford
full-time rabbinic services, still
goes on, this time with the help
of Hebrew College in Brook-
line, Mass.
A group of rural New
England Jews recently spent a
weekend at Hebrew College's
Camp Yavneh in secluded
Northwood, N.H., learning the
true meaning of the Jewish
Sabbath.
They attended study
sessions led by resident rabbis
and teachers and participated
in prayers and songfests
conducted by Yavneh's 225
campers.
"All of us here this weekend
are tremendously thirsty to be
more Jewish," said Rick
Schwag of Lyndonville, Vt.,
executive director of the foun-
dation, of the 17 adults and
three children who attended.
"We'd be thrilled to have an
institute like this happen once
a month," he added.
Correspondence between
Schwag and Hebrew College
President Samuel Schafler
resulted in the Yavneh!
weekend. Schwag and Hebrew
College are now negotiating a
follow-up program to the
Shabbat weekend.
In the coming year. Schwag
has arranged for courses in
Portsmouth, N.H., Bratt-
leboro, Mass., Bangor and
Montpelier, Vt., on such
subjects as how to conduct
Jewish funeral services,
preparing for a bar/bat
mitzvah, uses of the Jewish

They 're Warming Up
U.S.S.R./Israel Discuss Chambers of Commerce
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) A
further warming of relations
between the Soviet Union and
Israel and a first step toward
direct trade between the two
countries is appearing on the
horizon, as informed sources
here are saying there could be
an opening of chambers of
commerce soon in each
country.
Informed sources here indi-
cate that bilateral chambers of
commerce will be a subject of
discussion when Peres meets
with his Soviet counterpart,
Eduard Shevardnadze, during
the United Nations General
Assembly in New York, which
began Sept. 20.
Earlier this summer during
a visit to Leningrad, Daniel
Gillerman, president of the
Israel Federation of Chambers
of Commerce, broached the
subject of the establishment of
mutual chambers of commerce
in Leningrad and Tel Aviv
with Soviet authorities.
At about the same time, the
Soviets announced they would
be exporting television
programs to Israel.
The topic surfaced again
during talks between Nimrod
Novik, a foreign policy advisor
to Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres, and Gennady Terasov,
a Soviet Foreign Ministry
specialist on the Middle East.
Meanwhile, the head of the
Israeli consular mission to
Moscow, Meron Gordon, was
back in Israel to brief Israeli
leaders on the status of Soviet-
Israel relations. He consulted
with both Peres and Premier
Yitzhak Shamir before
returning to Moscow.
According to speculations in
the press here, members of the
Moscow delegation return
frequently to Israel for
debriefings, because they lack
protected communication
equipment through which
diplomatic reports are
normally sent.
Nudel Disappointed With Israeli Treatment of Soviet Jews
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Former
prisoner of conscience Ida
Nudel is disappointed with the
way Soviet Jews are treated in
Israel and thinks some of them
are better off in the United
States.
Nudel, who won a 16-year
battle for emigration from the
Soviet Union when she arrived
in Israel last Oct. 15, ex-
pressed her disillusionment
while taping an interview for a
television show, "The Year
That Was," aired Sept. 13.
"Israel and Israelis are indif-
ferent to immigration from the
Soviet Union," Nudel contend-
ed. Soviet Jews "prefer to be
taxi drivers in New York and
to earn money rather than
driving a taxi in Israel and
engaging in self-degradation,"
she was quoted as saying.
A former economist-
engineer at the Soviet Insti-
tute for Planning and Produc-
tion, Nudel said, "When Soviet
Jews ask me whether to immi-
grate to Israel, I tell them: If
you are an academician, don't
come here before you learn
some menial profession.
"If you are a doctor or a
chemist you won't have
anything to do in Israel."
With respect to her personal
experience, Nudel said that
she had trouble getting a loan
to build a house in the Jeru-
salem area.
Soviet emigres settling in
Israel often complain about
the difficulties they experience
finding jobs and affordable
housing. Officials in the Ab-
sorption Ministry and the
Jewish Agency for Israel
admit there is a problem.
The Jewish Agency
Assembly this summer
adopted a plan aimed at
reforming the absorption
system. Many of its prime
components have not yet been
implemented.
UN Appointee
President Reagan announced his intention to nominate
Arthur Schneier to be an alternate representative of the
United States of America to the forty-third session to the
General Assembly of the United Nations.
Year in Review:
Soviet Jews Benefit From Glasnost
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
For Jews in the Soviet Union, the
year 5748 can truly be said to have
been a sweeter year than anyone
could remember. Although fears and
dangers of anti-Semitism often esca-
lated, and countless thousands of
refuseniks waited, and still wait, for
their coveted exit visas, this was the
year of glasnost (openness) and the
realization of dreams for many promi-
nent, long-time refuseniks.
OCTOBER
October 15, 1987: Ida Nudel wins
her 16-year battle to be reunited with
her sister in Israel. Just as Nudel
prepares to leave, her long-time
colleagues, Vladimir and Maria
Slepak, also 17-year refuseniks,
receive notice that they, too, can
leave.
Along with the Slepaks, other
long-term refuseniks, all of them
well-known Jewish activists or
former prisoners of Zion, all of them
[>reviously refused on basis of know-
edge of "state secrets," get word
that they, too, will be permitted to
emigrate. They are: Iosif Begun,
Vladimir Lifshitz, Aba Taratuta,
Viktor Brailovsky, Lev Ovsishcher,
Boris Fridman, Evgeny Yakir and
Leonid Yusefovitch.
The apparent relaxation of Soviet
policy regarding "state secrets" is
interpreted in the West as part of a
Soviet strategy to improve the Soviet
human rights image on the eve of
nuclear arms limitation talks between
the United States and Soviet Union.
NOVEMBER
In preparation for a December
summit meeting in Washington
between President Reagan and
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev,
plans are announced for a massive
demonstration for Soviet Jews in the
nation's capital, organized by a coali-
tion of 50 national Jewish organiza-
tions and 300 local federations under
the name Summit III Task Force.
DECEMBER
In an extraordinary pre-summit
television interview with NBC's Tom
Brokaw, Gorbachev maligns the
effort for Soviet Jewry, claiming the
United States is organizing a "brain
drain" by pushing for Soviet Jewish
emigration. However, he claims the
Soviets "will do our best to have
those problems resolved."
Sixteen-year refusenik Pavel
Abramovich of Moscow receives
permission to emigrate on eve of
summit conference.
On Dec. 6, the day before Gorba-
chev will arrive in Washington, more
than 200,000 people gather near the
White House in support of Soviet
Jews.
In Moscow, several Jews trying to
stage their own "Freedom Sunday"
are beaten and arrested and an
American correspondent is detained
by police.
In Tel Aviv, Israeli leaders
address 10,000 demonstrators
gathered in a sports stadium for
Soviet Jews. Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres calls on Gorbachev to
dismantle not only nuclear missiles
but the "land mine of hatred" for
Jews.
Human rights and arms control
top agenda as Soviet leader Gorba-
chev holds long-awaited summit with
Reagan. Soviet Foreign Ministry
spokesman Gennady Gerasimov,
briefing reporters during summit,
remarks that most Jews who want to
emigrate from the Soviet Union have
already done so, and brands incorrect
the claim that about 400,000 Soviet
Jews wish to emigrate. However,
following the summit, Gerasimov
says the demonstrators appear to
have made their point about Soviet
Jewish emigration.
Soviet news agency Tass
denounces rally, calling speeches
"monstrous for their unfairness." A
senior Soviet official tells Israel
Radio the Washington rally will have
no effect on Soviet emigration policy.
Nevertheless, some breakthrough is
perceived as reports surface that the
Kremlim plans to disband the Anti-
Zionist Committee of the Soviet
Public.
Another faint glimmer of hope is
seen when Soviet emigration officials
give the go-ahead to reapply for
emigration to refuseniks who call
themselves "poor relatives" those
whose relatives refuse to sign finan-
cial waivers of obligation.
On Dec. 21, Professor Alexander
Lerner of Moscow receives a phone
call from the OVIR emigration
bureau saying he, too, has permission
to leave. The 74-year-old internation-
ally known cyberneticist has been
waiting 16 years to hear that news.
Leonid Volvovsky, 13-year refu-
senik and a leader of the Soviet
Jewish cultural movement who spent
16 months in a Siberian labor camp
gets permission to emigrate.
OVIR emigration bureau in
Moscow posts announcement on its
doors that "those wishing to visit
Israel may now apply to do so."
Soviet Jewish emigration figure
for 1987 reaches 8,155, a nine-fold
jump over the previous year's
number of 914, which was the second
lowest on record. Soviet Jewish activ-
ists continue, however, to insist on
bringing these figures in line with the
over 50,000 who emigrated in 1979.
JANUARY
Iosif Begun, former prisoner of
Zion and prominent Jewish cultural
activist in Moscow, arrives in Israel
to a tumultuous throng.
In Tel Aviv, the visas of a Soviet
consular delegation that arrived six
months ago are extended for one
month, but Israel withholds a further
extension while awaiting expected
Soviet reciprocity in granting Israel's
request for a similar delegation to
Moscow.
Israel announces it arrested a
Soviet emigre in December for spying
for the Soviet Union. The court
imposes a blackout on information
about the case of Shabtai Kalman-
ovitz, a businessman who emigrated
from the Soviet Union in the 1970s.
But the Israeli public knows him for
his unusual background as show busi-
ness impresario who was arrested in
England for passing bad checks and
for allegedly holding diplomatic
status as envoy to a black "inde-
pendent" state of South Africa.
B'nai B'rith International
declares it is taking the first steps
toward establishing a presence in the
Soviet Union.
January emigration figures drop
to 722 from December's 899.
Pessimism is voiced that the euphoria
of the summit days has passed.
FEBRUARY
Alexei Magarik, the last prisoner
of Zion, arrives in Israel.
Yuli Kosharovsky of Moscow, a
prominent, 17-year refusenik, stages
17-day hunger strike for anniversary
of refusal.
An apparent relaxation is
reported by Soviet Jewry groups in
emigration requirement of financial
waiver from relatives.
MARCH
Long-term refuseniks and Jewish
cultural activists Natasha Khasina
and Marat Osnis receive permission
to emigrate.
Former refusenik Pavel Abra-
movich and his brother-in-law
Vladimir Prestin arrive in Israel.
APRIL
For the first time since it began
16 years ago, New York's massive
Solidarity Sunday March for Soviet
Jewry is cancelled. Its sponsor, the
Coalition to Free Soviet Jews, insists
the demonstration is merely
"postponed" but sets no new date for
the popular protest march and rally,
saying "smaller events" would be
staged in anticipation of the June
summit meeting between Reagan and
Gorbachev, to be held in Moscow.
MAY
Israeli Foreign Minister Peres
holds unusual meeting in Budapest
with top Hungarian leaders, a move
made possible by Soviet authorities.
In Madrid, Peres, attending a
meeting of the Socialist Interna-
tional, meets with Soviet officials and
discusses visas for an Israeli consular
delegation to Moscow.
Israeli officials in Jerusalem
refuse to comment on report that
Israel and the Soviet Union are nego-
tiating for the release of a Jewish
emigre, Professor Markus Klinkberg,
serving an 18-year prison sentence as
a spy.
As the date of the superpower
summit approaches, the Soviets
finally announce they will issue visas
to a five-member Israeli consular
delegation immediately following the
summit.
JUNE
In this fourth summit meeting
between Reagan and Gorbachev, the
perennial issue of human rights takes
center stage. Gorbachev says Moscow

UJA1989 Prime Minister's Mission Tops $20 Million
NEW YORK, NY Led by
Mission Chairman Steven
Grossman of Boston, 143
participants from 28 U.S.
communities joined the United
Jewish Appeal for its first
major event of the 1989
Jubilee Campaign, the Prime
Minister's Mission to Poland
and Israel, August 14-19. The
mission participants pledged
more than $20.7 million in
total pledges to the '89
Campaign, including $2.6
million in "new money" for
Project Renewal which gener-
ated a 29 percent increase over
commitments made by the
same donors last year.
In a dramatic effort to give
families the opportunity to
share the mission experience,
the Prime Minister's Mission
included spouses, relatives and
many children, bearing out its
theme of Dor Le Dor (from
Generation to Generation) and
its focus on the concept of
children those whom we
lost, the children of today and
Jewish children of tomorrow.
The group ranged in age from
15 to 91 and participants and
their children announced gifts
from fifty dollars to $1.5
million each.
UJA National Chairman
Morton A. Kornreich was
extremely pleased with the
action packed week which
began with visits to historical
sites in Poland such as
Warsaw's Jewish Cemetery,
the Nozyk Synagogue,
Auschwitz-Birkenau and the
Warsaw Ghetto area. "It was
50th Anniversary," said Korn-
reich. "It was an experience,
from the darkness of Poland to
an impressive curtain-raiser
for this extra-special Jubilee
Campaign, marking UJA's
the light of Israel, which I am
sure no one will soon forget."

National Vice Chairman and
National Chairman for Major

Actress Liv Ullmann spoke about the lost children of the Holocaust
to the participants of the recent United Jewish Appeal Prime

Dor Mission (Generation to Generation) which travelled to Poland
and Israel to inaugurate UJA's Jubilee Campaign.
Gifts from New Haven, Conn.,
said: "The mission served as a
powerfully effective kickoff for
the major gifts phase of the '89
Campaign, setting a high stan-
dard for all the events to
follow." Many who attended
the mission with their children
were happy that they were
able to witness such educa-
Arab Friend Victim of West Bank Murder
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) This
is the story about the price of
naivete.
Ziva Goldovsky, 18, had no
doubts. She was so convinced
that relations between the
Jews and Arabs are only a
function of how they treat
each other, how they talk to
each other, that she had set
herself no barriers.
Goldovsky used to have as
many Palestinian friends as
she had Jewish friends in the
radical leftist circles in which
she had spent most of her
youth in Holon.
At the height of the Pales-
tinian uprising, she traveled
freely in the West Bank,
hitching rides with Arab cars,
socializing with Palestinian
youths and eventually falling
in love with one.
"Nothing will happen
to me," she promisee her
worried parents. "I know
them, I know how to talk to
Kaddish Recited In Pakistan
NEW YORK (JTA) A

Embassy, Rosalie Kahn,
recited Kaddish at the
embassy's memorial service
for the late ambassador,
Arnold Raphel, 45, in what
may have been the first recita-
tion of Jewish prayer in
Islamic Pakistan.
Services for Raphel, who
was among the 29 people killed
in a plane crash with Pakistani
President Mohammad Zia ul-
Haq two weeks ago, were
attended by Ghulam Ishaq
Khan, the new chief executive,
and a delegation of Cabinet
ministers and high-ranking
military officers.

them." The parents tried to
convince her that although
they respected her liberal
views, she should be more
cautious. But she would not
listen.
On Aug. 13, her body was
found, totally burned, on a
farm near the industrial zone
of the Arab town of El-Bireh,
some 20 miles north of Jeru-
salem.
At first, rumors spread that
this was the body of a Pales-
tinian boy killed by the
security forces. Then it was
believed that the victim was a
Palestinian girl.
It took further investigation
and laboratory tests to reveal
the actual tragedy: that the
farm near El-Bireh was to be
the la X stop on the journey of
a young Jewish woman who
was a victim of her own belief
in the good of humankind.
Police announced they had
solved the murder, after a
lengthy investigation in a
hostile environment.
According to a police commu-
nique, two suspects have been
arrested in connection with
the murder, both known for
their contacts with the victim.
One of them confessed that
he killed the young woman.
Another is suspected of having
helped the prime suspect to
remove the body and burn it.
The prime suspect reportedly
led the police officers to a
place where they found keys, a
purse and documents
belonging to the victim.
Ziva Goldovsky was raised in
Holon, far away from the
scene of violence. But coming
from a liberal home, she
became politically involved,
engaged herself in pro-
Palestinian activities and
made a number of acquain-
tances with Arabs.
She supported the Pales-
tinian uprising, and was
enraged at the almost daily
reports of violent encounters
between the security forces
and the local population. She
had faith that once political
differences are set aside, there
would be no justification for
fear.
According to the police
version of the murder, report-
edly based on the prime
suspect's own confession,
Goldovsky's last encounter
with an Arab began with a
minor exchange, as she and an
Arab friend took a walk deep
into remote areas of the farm.
The Arab not the young
man she was romantically
involved with began with
remarks on her immodest
attire, then charged that she
was an agent for the security
forces. When she denied this,
he said: "Prove it."
Goldovsky asked: "How can
I prove it?'*
Said the Arab: "Get me a
pistol."
She replied: "I will not give
you a pistol so that you can
shoot Jewish children."
This prompted the suspect to
slap the young woman in the
face.
Goldovsky apparently still
believed, even at this gesture
of violence, that straight talk
could do it. "My parents have
never slapped me," she told
her friend, "and neither will
you."
But the suspect then
allegedly pushed her down,
strangled her and eventually
struck her head with a heavy
rock. He then called a friend,
and together they burned the
body.

would consider restoring diplomatic
ties with Israel, broken in 1967, on
condition of the convening of an
international Middle East peace
conference.
In a new spiflt of rapprochement
with the Soviets, Reagan refrains
from excessive criticism of Gorba-
chev and appears to lay blame for
human rights abuses on Soviet
"bureaucracy."
Following a meeting at the
United Nations between Israeli
Premier Yitzhak Shamir and Soviet
Foreign Minister Eduard Shevard-
nadze, it is announced that an Israeli
consular delegation will go to Moscow
in July.
On June 19, the Israeli Cabinet
makes a landmark, controversial
decision to grant Israeli visas only to
those Soviet Jews who are committed
to resettling in Israel. A subsequent
storm erupts among Soviet Jewry
groups throughout the West and
takes up much of the agenda of the
annual meeting of the Jewish Agency
Assembly meeting in Jerusalem.
RuralJews -----------
Of a total of 1,493 Jews who leave
the Soviet Union in June, only 150 go
to Israel, according to figures from
the Soviet Jewry Research Bureau of
the National Conference on Soviet
Jewry. The emigration total for the
first half of 1988 stands at 6,078,
nearly double the figure allowed to
leave during the first half of 1987.
But these figures differ slightly
from those released by the Inter-
governmental Committee for Migra-
tion, based in Geneva. ICM reports
that 1,470 Jews left the Soviet Union,
of whom 127 went to Israel. The
National Conference claims the
Geneva figures do not take into
account the 23 Jews who traveled to
Israel via Bucharest.
JULY
An internal Soviet Jewish affair
is settled when a former Jewish
community center in Moscow is
returned to Moscow's Choral Syna-
gogue 47 years after it was requisi-
tioned by the Soviet authorities to
serve as a hospital for war casualties.
Unusually sharp criticism over
the move comes unexpectedly from
Romanian Chief Rabbi Moses Rosen,
who is honored in Jerusalem for his
role in the aliyah of Romania's Jews.
Rosen says, "If Theodor Herzl were
to arise from his grave today, he
would drop dead of shame. The deci-
sion is a shameful blot on Zionism."
Support for Israel's decision is
voiced by Morris Abram of the
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry, who says his organization
supports a two-track approach
whereby Soviet Jews could apply
directly to the American Embassy in
Moscow for American visas.
According to Abram, 300 Soviet Jews
have immigrated to the United States
since last January with American
visas, three times the number
permitted to do so in 1987.
Representatives of HIAS, the
Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, say
Continued from Page 5
they will oppose any change in Amer-
ican immigration laws that would
give refugee status to Soviet Jews
arriving in Israel.
An emergency develops when the
American Embassy in Moscow,
claiming a shortage of funds,

SUKKOT: From Birth To The End Of Time
By RABBI HOWARD SHAPIRO
TEMPLE ISRAEL
Rosh Hashanah is the new
year, time begins again. The
tradition says: This is the day
of the world's birth. The world
and all creation come into
being. (It may be the Fall but it
is Spring). All is new; all is
fresh with the dew of poten-
tial.
Sukkot is the harvest; it is
the celebration of the earth's
Egyptian Seizure of
Israeli Boat Criticized
promise fulfilled. Sukkot is the
end of time; it is the best of
times for it is what can yet
bethe world as it should be
a Universe in which humanity
is in tune and turned to the
LIFE inherent in every one of
its atoms.
SUKKOT IS MESSIANIC.
The references to Sukkot
Shalom and Sukkot David (The
Sukkah-Tabernacle of Peace
and of David) occur both in our
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli
officials have expressed disap-
proval of the Egyptian coast
guard's move to ram and seize
an Israeli excursion boat in the
Gulf of Eliat. But the Foreign
Ministry is awaiting further
details of the incident before
deciding how Israel will
respond.
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin said that the incident
was not the sort of thing that
should occur between friendly
nations and was "completely
unnecessary."
Information so far indicates
that the seizure was an inde-
pendent initiative, not coordin-
ated with authorities in Cairo.
The Maya, with 35 Israeli
passengers and crew aboard,
was intercepted by the Egyp-
tian patrol ship, rammed and
towed to the Egyptian coast
guard station on Coral Island
in the gulf.
The Maya's deck and hull
were damaged, but no one was
hurt. Its passengers and crew
were detained. After several
hours, they were allowed to
return to Eliat aboard the
Maya, apparently on orders
from the authorities in Cairo.
The captain of the Maya,
Moshe Saar, said he was about
a mile offshore when attacked.
Kohl To
Jerusalem
By DAVID KANTOR
BONN (JTA) Jerusalem
Mayor Teddy Kollek invited
Chancellor Helmut Kohl of
West Germany to visit the holy
city and said here that the
German leader might come
sometime in December.
A spokesman for Kohl said
the chancellor definitely wants
to come to Jerusalem, but that
a visit would depend on his
schedule.
Kollek extended the invita-
tion during an hour-long chat
with the chancellor that
focused on a fountain, now
being built, that the West
German government has
donated to Jerusalem.
The fountain is a creation of
Gernot Rumpf, a German
artist. Kollek would like to see
Kohl dedicate it sometime at
the end of this year.
Kollek also met here with
Foreign Minister Hans-
Dietrich Genscher and several
other high-level officials.
The Jerusalem mayor said
that his discussions focused on
how to improve the overall
situation in Jerusalem through
contributions to specific social,
educational and other better-
ment programs.
He said the Egyptians ordered
him not to use his radio. He
also said he refused to sign a
statement that his vessel had
sustained no damage.
According to the Egyptians,
the Maya was only about 300
yards offshore in Egyptian
waters and failed to heed
orders to stand clear.
Prayerbooks and Torah. They
speak about our deepest
Jewish dreama time to come
when the seed of David will
have blossomed into a time, an
era of peace for all humanity.
When we celebrate Sukkot, we
link ourselves to the dreams;
we join the force for life and
good we mean when we say
God.
The tradition speaks to us in
terms of eating and dwelling in
the Sukkah for Sukkot's week.
The Mitzvah is: "And you shall
live in booths (Sukkot) seven
days," (Leviticus 23:42). We
are encouraged to be in touch
with our dreams as we root
ourselves to the soil. We are
sensitized to the world around
and the blessings of life. Each
time we enter the Sukkah we
breathe the air of promise;
each time we dine in the
Sukkah we join our people
and their yearnings.
This year's yearning comes
from deep within the Jewish
people's souls. The theme is
the same; the intensity and
urgency seems more pressing.
A poem appeared this summer
in the Israel newspapers, enti-
tled, Awake Coffee Drinkers.
Written by an Israeli soldier, it
speaks to Sukkot's dream.
'From the Suburbs
of Sheehem'
"From the suburbs of
Sheehem, from the alleys of
Gaza, I cry to you.
From the suburbs of
Sheehem, from the alleys of
Gaza, from the niches in Bait
Fagelia, I cry to you, how will I
jolt you out of your armchair?
I cry to you in the name of the
hand that was taught to wave
the greeting of peace, and found
itself holding a club before the
face of a boy in Ramallah.
(My hand is broken and still
it will not let go of the club until
I can be sure that you, mother
and father, are safe).
I cry to you in the name of the
boys in red and brown and
purple berets, .in my war
there are no winners. in my
war there is no way out.
Your wars did not help. They
were ephemeral; the issues
were not resolved. And I do not
find with you the support I so
need now.
I do not yet believe that my
son will live to sit under his
vine and under his fig tree."
If there is a way, we need to
help that young soldier believe
again. We have to find a way
that he will feel our support.
We need to be able to say to
him: Your sons and your
daughter will live in peace;
vines and fig trees will blossom
with the sweet fruit of harvest
once again.
Sukkot promises at least
that much. We can do no less.

JEFFREY POINTE
Jeffrey Edward Pointe, son
of Robert E. and Barbara A.
Pointe of West Palm Beach,
will be called to the Torah as a
Bar Mitzvah at Temple Israel.
Rabbi Howard Shapiro will

Jeffrey attends .The

involved in golf and basketball.
He will be twinned with Nisim
Anisimob of the Soviet Union,
who was denied his freedom to
be called to the Torah as a Bar

Indiana, have supported these
sales, "Lloyd Bentsen and I
are going to say 'no' to Arab
shopping lists that endanger
the security of Israel."
While Bush did not mention
Jerusalem, Dukakis said "the
Republican ticket does not
acknowledge Israel's sover-
eignty over its capital an
undivided Jerusalem. We do."
Both candidates vowed to
continue to press for the
emigration of Soviet Jewry.
Bush poionted to a large sign
in the convention hall which
said "Mr. Gorbachev: Where
Do Soviet Jews Apply For
glasnost?"
"That sign says it all," Bush
said.
Dukakis did not refer to the
sign, but he said, "Mr. Gorba-
chev, if glasnost can open
Soviet society, why can't it
open the doors to free emigra-
tion by Soviet Jews?"
While the issue of the separ-
ation of church and state was a
major source of contention
between the presidential
candidates at the B'nai B'rith
convention four years ago, it
was only briefly mentioned
this time.
Bush said that despite their
differences, Americans agree
on many things, including
"reverence for the principle of
separation of church and
state."
Dukakis said the American
dream must be defended
"against those strident voices
from the radical right who
would undermine the constitu-
tional principles of individual
liberty and the separation of
church and state."

Israel Launches
Test Satellite-
Eighth In Space
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel
successfully launched a small
test satellite becoming the
eighth country in the world
capable of sending an object
into orbit.
The satellite, dubbed "Ofek
(Horizon) One," was lofted
into space by an Israeli-made
rocket. The launch site was not
disclosed.
The satellite entered into
what was described as a "low
elliptical orbit, circling the
globe from east to west once
every 90 minutes," at
distances ranging from 155 to
620 miles.
Ofek is expected to have a
life span of about one month.
The time will be used to test its
solar energy power plant, its
ability to transmit data and its
responses to orders from
earth, officials here said.
They stressed it was not a
"spy satellite," contrary to
reports in the foreign news
media that have been
predicting that Israel would
soon launch one.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
praised the scientific and tech-
nological community for
designing, building and
launching the satellite. He
noted it places Israel among
the few countries capable of
such a feat.
He stressed that the satellite
would have no effect on the
regional arms race, but does
put Israel into the "technolog-
ical race." With the launching,
it has gained an important
prestige advantage, he said.
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres agreed that the Ofek
launching was not a military
move. He observed that "the

problem is not one of borders
or the level of our technolog-
ical prowess, but of the tension
and hatred in this region."
"The World of Tomorrow'
The launching cast a spot-
light on another political
figure, Professor
Yuval Ne'eman of Tel Aviv
University, an internationally
Krominent physicist who is
;ader of the ultranationalist
party Tehiya.
Ne'eman, who also heads
Israel's space agency,
described the launch as "very
clean," without any problems.
Ne'eman said the test satel-
lite will be followed by a scien-
tific satellite. He said decisions
will be made about which of a
series of proposed scientific
experiments will be carried out
by future satellites.
"This is an important step
which takes Israel into the
world of tomorrow," Ne'eman
said. He noted that satellites
are now a multibillion-dollar
business serving global
communications and a wide
variety of other purposes.
Ne'eman also referred to
media rumors of an Israeli spy
satellite. He said they were a
likely conclusion. Considering
"that we have defense and
security problems, they put
two and two together."
He admitted that there is a
"defense aspect" to the satel-
lite launching. That is a matter
to be discussed in the future by
the competent

..."
authorities, Ne'eman said.
The spy satellite rumors
were fueled by the secrecy that
surrounded the launch. Until
Ofek was successfully on the
way to orbit, officials here
refused to comment.
Spy Satellite Too Costly
Ne eman himself had
dismissed the reports as
"more like science fiction tales
and far from reality."
Israel's space scientists say
the theoretical capacity exists
to build and launch a high-
altitude spy satellite, but the
costs may be too much for
Israel to bear.
A low-altitude orbiter would
be cheaper, but of limited mili-
tary value, the scientists say.
It would cover only a narrow
path, passing over the Middle
East region twice a day, have a
short lifetime and need to be
replaced frequently.
An intelligence satellite at
higher altitudes, set in a
stationary orbit, could observe
regional developments on a
permanent, "real time" basis
and would have a longer life
span. But it would have cost

Jewish Modern-Day Dilemma:
Having It All
Jewish women are no longer
just good mothers and devoted
community workers. They
have become trend setters,
competitors in the secular
business world and managers
of highpowered financial port-
folios. They're also grand-
mothers, Sunday school
teachers and homemakers.
Many struggle with trying to
do too much and some simply
seem to "Have It All."
But having it all has become
a modern-day dilemma for
many women. In response to
this, the Women's Division of
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County will present the
first part of its "Jewish
Women: The Challenge of
Change" Education Forum on
"Having It All: A Dilemma
That Spans The Generations,"
with Dr. Rela Geffen Monson,
on Thursday, October 20, at 9
a.m.

sociology and Dean of

YEAR
To the standard question, "In the Middle East situation, are your sympathies
more with Israel or more with the Arab nations?" respondents in a variety of
polls offered standard responses. Over a 22-year period, a study indicated that
Israeli support averaged US percent and Arab support averaged 10 percent. In
1986, '87 and '88, the charted answers reflect an average of from two to six polls.
In an April 1988 poll, a variation on the question referred to Palestinians. The
studies were conducted by the Gallup Organization and others by Roper; Penn
and Schoen; Harris; Wirthlin Group; The Los Angeles Times; and Marttila
and Kiley.
Analysis:
Orthodox Split on Centrist Group
By
ANDREW SILOW CARROLL
NEW YORK (JTA) Can
established Orthodox rabbinic
groups absorb or encourage
the opinions of an emerging
arm of "centrist" rabbis, or is
a separate body needed to
provide support for those
rabbis who think Orthodoxy
has turned too far to the right?
The more than 50 centrist
Orthodox rabbis who last
month attended the first
conference of the Fellowship
of Traditional Orthodox
Rabbis (FTOR) did not seem
prepared to reject either ques-
tion.
On the one hand, their pres-
ence at the two-day conference
held at New York's JFK
Airport indicated their dissa-
tisfaction with major Orthodox
organizations like the Union of
Orthodox Jewish Congrega-
tions of America or the
Rabbinical Council of America.
They feel their voices are not
being heard in the halls of
those institutions.
On the other hand, nearly all
signaled a reluctance to break
completely from those groups,
and know both the RCA and
the O.U. have come out
against efforts to form what
the organizations call
"splinter" groups.
Yet members of the FTOR
spoke of their new entity as a
"support group" and a "forum
for ideas" rather than a
splinter organization.
"We're embryonic," said
Rabbi Ephraim Zimand, of the
Traditional Congregation in
St. Louis.
"We're not going to issue
decisions but make available
all of the relevant acceptable
opinions. We'll provide an
open-minded platform where
you can exchange ideas
without feeling put down if
you had a minority opinion."
The FTOR represents the
avant-garde of centrist Ortho-
doxy, which is attempting to
combine adherence to halacha,
or Jewish law, with a commit-
ment to Zionism, a dedication
to secular education and
involvement, and a willingness
to at least conduct dialogues
with members of non-
Orthodox Jewish movements.
Although these centrists are
hardly unanimous to the
extent they are prepared to
move to the left, they are
nevertheless joined by a belief
that Orthodoxy has taken a
decided, and unwelcome, turn
to the right.
They find solace in the words
of Rabbi Norman Lamm, presi-
dent of Yeshiva University,
who said earlier this year that
the right-wing Orthodox in the
United States and Israel "have
set the religious agenda" for
too long.
Lamm, however, has no
connection with the new
group, and declined to be
interviewed for this article.
The FTOR began in August
1987 under the initiative of
Rabbis Stanley Wagner of
Denver, and Benzion Kaganoff
of Chicago.
remarriage.
The unity issue is at the root
of the "Who is a Jew?" debate
in the Israeli Knesset.
'Israelis are secular by choice, but also in
part by lack of choice.'
According to Wagner, of
Congregation Beth Hame-
drosh Hagodol, the intention
was to create a group that
identified with what he calls
"traditionalist rabbis."
Wagner defined "tradition-
alists" as rabbis who are
liberal in their interpretation
of Jewish law or who even
makes sacrifices in terms of
halacha. A frequently cited
example of the latter is the
lack of a mehitza, the fence or
curtain that separates men
and women worshippers.
Wagner said at least 100
rabbis, most with mixed-
seating synagogues, have
expressed an interest in
joining the organization.
Although they advocate a
liberal approach in many
areas, the most important
issues seem to be conversion to
Judaism and divorce.
Rabbis and laypersons fear
that Orthodox and non-
Orthodox groups may take
such different legal
approaches to the processes of
one group that the Orthodox
may not even recognize the
Jewishness of a child bom of a
non-Orthodox, or even liberal
Orthodox, conversion or
Orthodox parties and their
American supporters would
have Israel's Law of Return
extended only to those
converted under Orthodox
auspices.
Wagner acknowleges that
his left-wing Orthodox
approach is similar in some
ways to that of Conservative
Judaism's right wing, with
which he retains close profes-
sional ties.
But whereas "Conservatism
is trying to hold the line
against further erosion of hala-
chic norms," rabbis in the
FTOR are firmly committed to
the centrality of Orthodoxy.
FTOR endorses co-
educational Jewish high
schools and tolerates mixed-
seating synagogues, because
"they may become valuable
instrumentalities in authentic
kiruv," or outreach, according
to a resolution discussed at last
month's meeting.
"If I had my way, Orthodox
rabbis would fill every pulpit in
the country," said Rabbi
Joseph Ehrenkranz, spiritual
leader of Congregation
Agudath Sholom in Stamford,
Conn., and the first chairman
of FTOR.
Still, the new organization
represents a challenge to both
the O.U. and the RCA, the two
rabbinical organizations to
which most of the FTOR's
rabbis belong.
Last month, RCA President
Rabbi Max Schreier wrote the
entire membership that the
RCA "would not allow splinter
groups within Orthodoxy to
set the agenda of the Orthodox
community."
Wrote Schreier: "We appeal
to our colleagues to come back
to the RCA and cease their
separatist efforts."
Rabbi Binyamin Walfish,
executive vice president of the
RCA, said that the "tragedy"
of the FTOR is that there is
already a place for left-of-
center rabbis within the RCA.
The RCA is democratic,
Wallfish said, within the
bounds of halacha. "I've
begged them to do it under the
auspices of the RCA," he said.
The O.U. takes an identical
position to the new group as
the RCA, according to Rabbi
Pinchas Stolper, executive
vice president. "If there are
rabbis who feel they have
special agendas, it should be
addressed within the O.U.," he
said.
Stolper said the O.U. also
has an outreach program that
maintains contact with syna-
gogues that do not preserve
halachic standards, but wish to
associate with Orthodoxy.

For 50 years,weVe been sending
kids off to school.
Our hope has always been placed in our children.
In the darkest days of the Holocaust, we
saved tens of thousands of children from
Nazi Europe. In this decade, we've
helped thousands of orphaned
Ethiopian youngsters put down new
roots in Israel.
With the support of the United
Jewish Appeal, Youth Aliyah was there
for our children 50 years agoand contin
ues to be there today. Rescuing them,
teaching them, nurturing them to be all
they can be as Israel's future.
Through Project Renewal we are now reaching out to
a new generation, revitalizing neglected neighborhoods,
providing the counseling, educational, and job training
programs needed to help them share in Israel's
promise.
This year, the 50th Anniversary of ^ U J A

our children have grown.
With your support, we will continue to
make the difference.

Yugoslavia And Israel
An Historic Meeting
Tel Aviv (MDA): Magen
David Adorn (MDA) Israel's
Emergency Medical, Ambul-
ance, Blood and Disaster
Service has announced that
Magen David Adorn is seeking
U.S. volunteers to supplement
MDA's staff. Magen David
Adorn has successfully used
volunteers side by side with
paid personnel in such posi-
tions as ambulance drivers and
ambulance crew members. The
most recent group of MDA
volunteer trainees in Israel
includes 12 volunteers from
the U.S. who will work in
Jerusalem for the remainder
of the summer.
According to Dr. Robert L.
Sadoff, president of the Amer-
ican Red Magen David for
Israel (ARMDI) MDA's sole
support in the U.S., "The use
of properly trained volunteers
at Magen David Adorn has
proven effective in reducing an
otherwise overwhelming
workload for paid staff and
freed funds to hire staff for
positions volunteers can't fill.
There^are 5,000 Magen David
Adoih volunteers, making
MDA Israel's largest volun-
teer organization.
Chain Vigolik, director of
Magen David Adom's Jeru-
salem district gave an account
of how MDA's volunteers were
used at a recent major acci-
dent. "On a summer Thursday
evening, a truck crashed into a
bus in the Ramot road in North
Jerusalem, injuring 17 persons
and causing one of the most
serious road accidents in
Israel's history. Ramot is
fairly far away, near the
northern city limits of Jeru-
salem. Nevertheless, we were
there within three minutes
before the police or the fire
department with a Mobile
Intensive Care Unit and the
three ambulances on duty at
MDA Jerusalem. A minute
later, we were joined by a
fourth ambulance the one
we keep on alert in Ramot,
driven by a volunteer, a rabbi
who lives in the neighborhood.
By 7:30, four more volunteer
ambulance crews had been
called up from their homes all
over Jerusalem. Besides the
MICU and the eight ambu-
lances, we had more than 40
volunteers there; many of
them live on the Ramot road,
and came down to help as soon
as the sirens started. Two of

"I was really proud of our

JTA Staff Report
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Simcha Dinitz returned here
from a visit to Yugoslavia, the
first by an Israeli official since
Belgrade severed relations
with the Jewish state following
the Six-Day War of 1967.
Dinitz, who is chairman of
the World Zionist Organiza-
tion-Jewish Agency Execu-
tive, held an unprecedented
meeting with the Yugoslav
foreign minister. He was
accompanied by Mendel
Kaplan, chairman of the
Jewish Agency Board of
Governors, and Israel Singer,
secretary-general of the World
Jewish Congress, which
arranged the meeting.
Dinitz, who also serves on
the WJC Executive, told
reporters upon his arrival here
that Yugoslav Foreign
Minister Budimir Loncar
stressed his country's special
friendship with the Israeli
people and its desire to help
advance practical bilateral
matters and the Middle East
peace process.
He added, however, that
Loncar was critical of Israeli
policies.
In New York, WJC execu-
tive director Elan Steinberg
said this week's meetings
follow upon talks in July 1987
between WJC President
Edgar Bronfman and
Yugoslav leader Lazar Mojsov.

and how they worked. It's
something I can learn from."
According to Steinberg,
Mojsov said at that time that
"he would work toward better
relations with the Jewish
world as a whole and the State
of Israel."
Shortly after that meeting,
Tanjug, the official Yugos-
lavian news agency, opened an
office in Jerusalem. In January
1988, the Yugoslav ambas-
sador to the United Nations,
Marko Kosin urged closer ties
with Israel in remarks at UN
European headquarters in
Geneva.
Yugoslavia recognizes the
fact that Israel should have a
right to her sovereignty," he
said at the time.
In Belgrade, Singer handed
the Yugoslav foreign minister
a declassified 1948 U.S. Army
wanted list of 50,000 Nazi war
criminals, compiled after the
war. It includes the name of
Kurt Waldheim, wanted for

Dressing For Success
Tobin Reports On Anti-Semitic Findings
PBC Residents Express Perceptions
Panel members Leonard Hanser and Dr. Gary Tobin.
Jewish perceptions of anti-
semitism can be found on a
continuum of Fearful, some-
times obsessed with fear at the
"tremendous" amount of anti-
semitism today, to Denying
that any act of anti-semitism
exists, according to Dr. Gary
Tobin, author of the recently
published Jewish Perceptions
Of Anti-Semitism.
On September 14, at Temple
Israel in West Palm Beach, Dr.
Tobin spoke to approximately
60 people on his recent
research findings concerning
how Jews perceive anti-
semitism in America today.
Following his short lecture, he
joined a panel discussion with
Leonard Hanser, Chairman of
the Local Concerns Task
Force; Rabbi Alan Sherman,
Director of Community Rela-
tions Council of the Jewish
Federation; Louise Shure,
Regional Director of the Anti-
Defamation League and
Richard Weinstein, Chairman
of Legal Affairs Committee of
the Palm Beach County ADL.
Rabbi Alan Sherman listens
to an audience member.
Anti-semitism remains real
in the U.S. today, Tobin said.
There is much anti-semitic
rhetoric in the country and
Jewish perceptions of this are
a good barometer of what's
going on, he added. He claimed
that most Jews are not
paranoid, but "weary;" they
recognize what is going on and
are watchful of it. Tobin spoke
of "not so long ago" when
Jews were restricteois where
they could live, go to!School,
what clubs they could join,
etc., but added that it is
unlikely we are headed back in
that direction.
Tobin stressed that we must
differentiate between anti-
semitic beliefs and attitudes
and anti-semitic behaviors. He
said that national statistics
have shown a decline in anti-
semitic beliefs but added that
the statistics haven't declined
as much as is reported.
Tobin's findings elicted an
enthusiastic response from the
audience, who had questions
and comments concerning
personal experiences and
perceptions. Rabbi Sherman
acted as discussion moderator
and panel members responded
to specific questions.

UN's Trojan Horse
By JEFF RUBIN
Problem: Define Palestine.
Webster's Dictionary says:
"the country of the Jews in
Biblical times. 2. part of this
territory under a British
mandate after World War I;
divided into Israel and Jordan
by action of the U.N. in 1947.'
In 1910, Encyclopedia
Britannica included land on
both sides of the Jordan River
in its description of Palestine.
The as-yet unabridged PLO
Covenant states: "Palestine,
with its boundaries that
existed at the time of the
British Mandate, is an indivis-
ible territorial unit."
One of the PLO's logos bears
another outline of "Palestine"
which includes all the land
from the Jordan River to the
Mediterranean, i.e., Israel, the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
U.S. newspapers have begun
to refer to the West Bank and
Gaza Strip as "Palestine." The
Los Angeles Times has head-
lined a recent letters-to-the-
editor column "Deportations
in Palestine."
And now UN Secretary
General Javier Perez de
Cuellar has contributed his
own interpretation of "Pales-
tine." In a press conference
following a recent meeting
with Yasir Arafat, de Cuellar
referred to the West Bank and
Gaza Strip, saying "These are
occupied territories for me and
everybody with the exception,
of course, of the Israeli
government. We call them
Palestinians and the land
Palestine."
This new definition, greeted
warmly by the PLO, was not
historically accurate nor diplo-
matically proper. Heir to the
legacy of the League of
Nations, the UN's de Cuellar
certainly should have known
better.
When the League gave
Great Britain the Mandate for
Palestine in 1920, the territory
stretched from the Mediter-
ranean across the Jordan
River to the territories which
later became Saudi Arabia and
Iraq. In 1921, Britain lopped
off two-thirds of Mandatory
Palestine to create an emirate
for the Hashemite dynasty
driven out of Saudi Arabia by
the Saud clan and named the
area Transjordan. (The
country's independence was
proclaimed in 1946).
In 1947, Arab leaders
rejected a UN resolution which
would have partitioned the
land to the west of the Jordan
into Arab and Jewish states.
Following the declaration of
the State of Israel in 1948,
Transjordan and five other
Arab countries invaded Israel
in an effort to eradicate the
Jewish state. Hashemite King
Abdullah conquered the West
Bank, and proclaimed himself
king of "All Palestine." Now
astride both banks of the
Jordan River, he renamed his
country Jordan. In 1950,
Jordan formally annexed the
territory. For the next 17
years, Jordan and Egypt
prevented the development of
an independent Arab state in
the West Bank and Gaza Strip,
respectively.
Some within the Palestinian
Arab camp now seem to be
saying, without authority, that
they might be willing to accept
a state in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip as originally envi-
sioned in 1947. Many Pales-
tinian Arabs still cling to the
PLO Covenant's maximalist
claims to "all of Palestine" and
this dissension has led to polit-
ical and military clashes
between rival factions.
In his reference to "Pales-
tine," Perez de Cuellar has
endorsed PLO efforts for a
Palestinian Arab state in the
territories and has run rough-
shod over Israeli claims and
requirements. By siding with
one party to the Arab-Israeli
dispute, he also has trampled
on the tenets of UN Security
Council Resolution 338 which
calls for negotiations between
the parties to establish a just
and durable peace in the
region. Ironically, the U.N.
official said he hoped to nego-
tiate a settlement to the Arab-
Israeli conflict as he has begun
to do in the Iran-Iraq war. But
after his unilateral declaration
of Palestine, how can he be
regarded as an honest broker?
The annual UN charade on
"the question of Palestine"
has always been an occasion to
deride Israel, not to promote
the Palestinians.
Palestine was not restricted
to a narrow strip of land
between the Jordan River and
the 1948 disengagement lines.
Palestine started at the Medi-
terranean and ended in the
arid Jordanian plateau. It
embraced Israel, Jordan and
what became known as the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
The new, increasingly popular
use of the word Palestine as a
synonym for the territories is a
Trojan horse concealing a
threat to sovereign states on
both banks of the Jordan
River. Israelis, Jordanians and
Palestinian Arabs know it.
And so should Perez de
Cuellar.

Soviets Sign Holocaust Pact
WASHINGTON, D.C. -
Several million Nazi docu-
ments, photographs and other
records of Nazi atrocities
seized by the Red Army in the
former German occupied terri-
tories of the Soviet Union and
Eastern Europe at the end of
World War II will be made
available to western scholars
and researchers for the first
time as a result of an agree-
ment the U.S. Holocaust
Memorial Council has signed
with the Soviet Union.
The vast collection of the
Soviet archives may constitute
a third or more of existing
Nazi and other Holocaust-
related materials.
As a result of the break-
through agreement signed in
Moscow, the Council will
microfilm the documents and
duplicate photographs to be
kept in the archival repository
of the United States Holocaust
Memorial Museum expected to
open here in 1991. Major
components of these materials
will be displayed in the
Museum.
"We're obviously thrilled,"
said Miles Lerman, the
Council's international rela-
tions chairman, who headed a
six-person delegation that
visited archives in Moscow and
western republics of the Soviet
Union for two weeks. "We
have tried before to get this
information, but were always
unsuccessful. But the new
spirit of glasnost (openness)
unlocked this important
source."
The Soviet Union's archival
collection provides an in-depth
picture of what happened to an
estimated 2.5 million Jews in
the Nazi invaded territories of
what are now the Soviet
republics of Ukrainia,
Moldavia, Byelorussia,
Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania,
as well as in portions of
Russia. Large numbers of non-
Jews living in these territories,
including Gypsies, political
dissidents, local national
patriots and others, also
became Nazi victims of arrest,
torture and execution.
"We saw glimpses of infor-
mation on everything about
Latvian attitudes toward
Jews, about Lithuanian secret
police, statistics on the move-
ment of Jews, correspondence
of Nazi officers," said Univer-
sity of Vermont Professor
Raul Hilberg, a members of
the Council delegation and one
of the nation's foremost Holo-
caust scholars.
Previously, Holocaust
related documents have typi-
cally been released only on a
case-by-case basis, usually for
trials of accused war criminals
in the Soviet Union and in
western courts. This agree-
ment calls for the mutual
exchange of Holocaust-related
collections between the
Council and the Main Archival
Administration of the USSR
Council of Ministers.
Elie Wiesel Honored
CONNECTICUT (JTA) Elie Wiesel received an
honorary degree from the University of Connecticut at the
college's fall convocation. The convocation marked the
opening of the university's plan to house an archive of
Polish Jewish Holocaust material, which has been stored at
various Polish and Israeli sites.

Volume 14 Number 30
Dear Editor:
Having returned recently
from a local Leadership Devel-
opment Mission to Israel, I
respectfully offer the following
observations and comments as
a personal 'report.'
Simply stated, I had a
delightfully stimulating time,
without any concerns related
to personal safety. No sense of
foreboding, no furtive looks,
no rushing into shelters. Chil-
dren, beautiful as always,
played in the open at school;
adults worked during the day
and returned home at night.
The one mandatory false
alarm bomb threat triggered
by an idiotic tourist forgetting
an untended bag added some,
but unremarkable, emotional
color.
The country was breathtak-
ingly enchanting, and its
people fiercly proud of their
successes accomplished with,
to a degree, our assistance. In
recognition, English signs
celebrating Israel's fortieth
anniversary were everpresent;
the mood of the nation that of
a joyful party eagerly waiting
to begin, despite the "Inti-
fada's" disturbing turmoil in
isolated areas of the West
Bank.
The Europeans were there.
The South Americans were
there.
The Japanese were there.
The Arabs were there; you
bet they were there.
But where, oh where, were
the American Jews?
The Israelis I talked to were
tired of fighting implacable
foes, unhappy about another
looming war, and willing to
give anything for a chance at
dependable peace. Parents
faced their children's
impending army draft
gloomily, afraid of the changes
war wreaks on the healthiest
minds and bodies. For the first
time, no one asked me when I
would be making Aliyah. And
everyone wanted to know
where the Americans were.
Israelis are real people, not
American Jewish illusions
generated from a Hava
Nagilah need to believe that
nothing awful could really
happen over there. They need
not only our financial but our
physical and moral support, a
debt we increasingly incur as
we vicariously fortify our own
civil rights in the Diaspora
through their blood.
Deep in my heart lurks the
fear that once again, as in the
Holocaust, American Jewry
will abdicate its responsibility,
lest we make 'too much of a
disturbance.' Our vote to
abstain from travel this year
was in reality a vote of nonsup-
port and from that point the
slippery slide into the quick-
sand of convenient Zionism
begins Never again? I*wonder.
Get off your comfortable
American couch. Switch off
your TV set and let
NBC/CBS/ABC render
someone else's mind into two-
dimensional mush. Be part of a
reality your ancestors could
only dream of for the last two
thousand years.
Go to Israel. See it for your-
self. Make up your own mind.
But for G-d*s sake, stay off
that slippery slide.
Eric J. Weiner,
M.D., F.R.C.P

New York In response to
the devastating effects of the
recent floods in Bangladesh,
The American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC)
has announced the creation of
an "Open Mailbox for Bangla-
desh. The JDC will accept
contributions from both indi-
viduals and organizations.
These monies will be
earmarked for non-sectarian
relief for the people of Bangla-
desh.
The JDC is a member agency
of the Interfaith Hunger
Appeal, an organization
comprised of Catholic, Prot-
estant, Lutheran and Jewish
agencies engaged in relief and
development programs.
Heinz Eppler, President of
JDC, expressed concern that
the disease and Mlness
resulting from the floods are
endangering the lives of thou-
sands of people, among them
young children and many
elderly.
**JDC is dedicated to
providing assistance to anyone
in need. Through our non-
sectarian, humanitarian
efforts we have, in the past,
provided relief through Open
Mailbox campaigns for El
Salvador, Mexico, Cambodia,
Italy, Lebanon, and Ethiopia.
We now hope to do the same
for those stricken in Bangla-
desh."

The American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee has
been the overseas arm of the
American Jewish community
for more than 70 years. It was
established in 1914 and has
been devoted since then to the
rescue, relief, rehabilitation
and education services to Jews
around the world. Its services
are supported by contributions
to UJA-Federation campaigns

THE ENDOWMENT FUND
of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County
Endowment Planning Is Always "In Season"
With summer nearly over and the holidays almost behind us, our
thoughts begin to turn to "The Season," a time of bustling activity,
busy streets and crowded shopping centers.
Our futures, however, do not await the "season" to begin. Right now
is the time for planning, tending to our charitable needs and desires
and taking the appropriate steps toward our goals.
And the Federation Endowment Program is always ready for your
interest, involvement and participation.
Consider some of the options available:
Establishing an Endowment Fund
Opening a Philanthropic Fund
Creating a Charitable Remainder Trust
Any one of these options will provide a current tax benefit, confirm
your concern for the Jewish community and perpetuate your name in
the Jewish Federation and Palm Beach County.
If you are not yet ready to establish a Fund, perhaps you would
consider signing a "Letter of Intent." This is a non-legal, non-binding
statement that conveys your intention to remember the Jewish
Federation in your will or establish a Fund. It could be a first step in the
exciting and fulfilling endowment gift process.
Again, welcome to our continuing Endowment "season." For addi-
tional information concerning the Letter of Intent or other Fund
options, please call:

Treasures of the Temple
By LESLIE J. GOTTESMAN
(WZPS) Indiana Jones would
have a field day in the recesses
of Metziltayim Street in the
Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem's
Old City, for through an
arched doorway, hidden from
the brilliant sunshine, visitors
are greeted by a museum
exhibiting precisely-crafted
replicas of implements used in
the ancient Hebrew Temple.
A Glimpse of Jewish Heri-
tage
Since its official opening on
Jerusalem Day of this year,
the Museum of Treasures of
the Temple, a showcase of the
Temple Institute, a non-
political, independent body,
has offered both schoolchil-
dren and adults a glimpse of a
majestic Jewish heritage.
The inspiration for the
museum came from an ex-
paratrooper named Rabbi
Yisrael Ariel, who participated
in the battle for the Temple
Mount in the 1967 Six Day
War. His first army assign-
ment after the war, ironically,
was to guard the Dome of the
Rock;,1 the great Moslem
mosque located on the tradi-
tional site of King Solomon's
Temple. Ariel recognized that
while the main spiritual center
of the Jewish people had been
returned to Israel, its trea-
sured symbols had not. The
objects had all been captured
in ancient times by conquering
armies, such as the Roman
forces in 70 CE, whose
conquests were recorded in the
famed reliefs on the Arch of
Titus in Rome.
Creation of the magnificent
objects used in the Temple
service signified, to Ariel,
restoration of pride in the
Jewish heritage. Although the
obligations of the Temple
could no longer be fulfilled, its
spiritual messages could be
communicated.
Items on Display
The major elements of
worship in the ancient Hebrew
Temple are displayed behind
shiny btack curtains, adorned
with applique' cherubim. All

woven garments worn by the
Cohen (or High Priest) to

billions to build.
Scientists agree that the
problem is financial, not tech-
nological. Israel is especially
strong on the optical computer
image enhancement technolo-
gies required, they say.
According to some obser-
vers, Israel's interest in a mili-
tary satellite to spy on the
Arab states may be an
outcome of the Jonathan
Pollard affair.
Pollard, a civilian intelli-
gence analyst employed by the
U.S. Navy, is serving a life
sentence in an American
federal prison for spying on
behalf of Israel.
He sold Israelis material
that American intelligence
gathered on the Arab coutries
but did not share with Israel.
With Pollard out of business,
the Israelis need the means to
improve their own intelligence
gathering.
chalice cup, are based
primarily on biblical and
rabbinic descriptions.
The laver, for example, used
by the priests for washing
hands and feet before worship
during the period the Israel-
ites wandered in the desert,
possessed two faucets. In the
Second Temple, it had twelve.
The present copper model
contains six. Its base, which
some traditional authorities
describe as convex, others
concave, combines both forms
in an expression of reconcilia-
tion.
The priest's robe must be
one continuous white garmet
without seams. In order to
weave it with a pattern of
squares within squares, a
computerized loom was devel-
oped. In the case of the priest's
avnet or belt, its length
wrapped around his chest, at
heart level, was obviously
intended to limit his move-
ments during the atonement
service while he grappled with
his conscience.
Other items, fashioned from
gold and silver, as well as
copper and brass, serve to
inspire visitors with the gran-
deur these symbols depict. The
regal crown, traditionally
donned by the High Priest, is
made of gold and the elon-
gated trumpets, standards of
an independent people, of one
continuous piece of silver. In
the case of the harp, its design
is based on cave drawings
found at Megiddo, and dating
back 4-5,000 years. A larger
model, complete with gut
strings, is presently being
made.
The most ambitious plan to
date is the projected design of
a gold menorah. The ingenuity
needed for its construction
from one mold will first be
applied in a more modest silver
model. And in an area long-

bathed in mystery, eleven
different ingredients used for
incense in the Temple service
have been refined and
preserved in different recepta-
cles. Their components, as well
as the formula for the special
bluish dye referred to in the
Bible, is based on the extensive
research of Rabbi Pinchas
Burstein.
The first Temple, built by
King Solomon, and the second,
by Herod the Great, were
noted for their unsurpassable
beauty. The replicas of imple-
ments used in the Temple,
displayed in the Museum of the
Treasures of the Temple, have
helped a fascinating and
unique era in Jewish history.

Beach, Florida, president of
the Florida Atlantic Region of
Hadassah, the Women's

America, was among the 1,500
delegates at Hadassah's 74th

delegates took action on a
range of issues relating to the
role of women in Jewish and

projects in Israel and the

Simchat Torah:
A Celebration Of Torah's Conclusion
By RABBI
ISAAC VANDERWALDE
Congregation Anshei Sholom
Simchat Torah is the last day
of the long fall festival row. It
is the 9th day of Sukkoth
outside of Israel, and in Israel
it is celebrated on Shemini
Atzereth the 8th day of
Sukkoth.
The name of Simchat Torah
is not mentioned in the
Talmud, but its origin goes
back to early times. The Shul
chan Aruch, the compilation
and explanation of the laws of
Judaism written down in the
16th century, says "The last
day of Yomtof is called
Simchat Torah, because we
rejoice on this day and make a
festive meal in honor of the
concluding of the Torah."
Joy and rejoicing are an inte-
gral part of our religious life.
In our modern world, based
upon the concept of material
success and instant joy, many
people associate Judaism with
asceticism, claiming that
fasting is more righteous than
feasting. In the Talmud,
however, we are informed
"that in the world to come a
person will have to stand judg-
ment for every legitimate
pleasure he has renounced."
Joy is not an outburst of hilar-
ious carnival style, uncon-
trolled and subconscious
emotion. It should always
bring out the best in our
human behavior.
Simchah, genuine and
compassionate joy, opens for
us new dimensions of consci-
ousness and new avenues of
communication. In the Bible
we find numerous descriptions
of rejoicing on various occa-
sions. Many of them are
connected with the celebra-
tions of festivals that were
celebrated in the ancient
Temple, which formed the
cultural and religious center of
our people. These joyous occa-
sions were heartfelt demon-
strations of caring and
sharing.
Maimonides says that "If
one is arrogant and stands on
his own dignity and thinks only
of self-aggrandizement on
joyous occasions he is both a
sinner and a fool. While one
eats and drinks it is his duty to
feed the stranger, the orphan,
the widow and other poor
unfortunate people, for he who
locks the doors to his court-
yard and eats and drinks with
his wife and family without
giving anything to eat and
drink to the poor and bitter in
soul his mind is not rejoicing
in a divine commandment, but
rejoicing in his own stomach.
Rejoicing of this kind is a
disgrace to those who indulge
in it."
Simchat Torah the last day
of the full festival season,
when the cycle of the yearly
Torah reading is finished with
the last chapter of the 5th book
of Moses and is renewed at the
time with the beginning of the
1st book, becomes the training
ground of joy for the rest of
the year. Jewish law has
espoused that to feel and
express joy it must be taught
systematically. This is a great
religious lesson to be learned
in our age of affluence. If we
want to enjoy life to its fullest
we must help those who need
our assistance, kindness and
generosity.
