Hammer:
'Gorbachev
To Free
Jews'
TUCSON (JTA) Mikhail
Gorbachev will eventually let
every refusenik leave the
Soviet Union, according to
Armand Hammer, a personal
friend of the Soviet leader.
"Even more than that, every
Jew who wants to leave the
Soviet Union will be allowed to
do so. That is what Mr. Gorba-
chev told me and I believe
him," Hammer said in an
interview with Patricia Golan
of the Arizona Post, the Jew-
ish weekly published here.
The 90-year-old industrialist,
the first American to develop
commercial contacts with
Soviet Russia in the early
1920s, was in Tucson for a
meeting of the President's
Cancer Panel, a blue-ribbon
group that advises the govern-
ment on the latest develop-
ments in cancer research.
Hammer, who has known
every Soviet leader since
Lenin, said he has faith in
Gorbachev. "I believe him. I
think he is a man of his word,
and he certainly should be
tested on this. We should give
him a chance."
He added, "Gorbachev
might make conditions so
pleasant in Russia, some of
those Jews might not want to
leave."
Hammer, known in interna-
tional business circles as the
"Russian Connection," helped
organize American assistance
after the Chernobyl nuclear
disaster in 1986.

PBC Eight To Visit Romania, Israel In UJA Jubilee Mission
Among the 1,000 community
leaders of the United Jewish
Appeal (UJA)/Federation
Campaign participating in the
organization's 50th Anniver-
sary Jubilee Mission to Israel,
Oct. 13-19, are four Palm
Beach County couples: Heinz
and Ruth Eppler, Barbara and
Bernard Green, Murray and
Norma Grabler and Ruth and
Steve Abramson.
For four days before the
mission, while other mission
participants are visiting either
European or North African
pre-mission sites, the Palm
Beach County eight will visit
Romanian places of historic
Jewish interest.
The Romanian pre-mission,
chaired by Heinz Eppler, Pres-
ident of the Joint Distribution
Committee, will include a visit
to the Jewish community of
Iasi, a meeting in the "Oihe
Sil" 200-year-old synagogue
on Botosani, a visit to the
"shtetl" and the Old .Age
Home in Dorohoi, and an even-
ing with the participants of
several youth choirs and an
orchestra in Bucharest.
"The trip to Romania and
Israel is going to be a mission
of remembrance and celebra-
tion," said Barbara Green,
Palm Beach County pre-
mission coordinator. "We
chose to visit the remnants of
what was a viable Romanian
Jewish community to see the
highly effective programs the
JDC has implemented there
with the funds it receives from
the UJA/Federation
Cmpaign," she continued.
"Afterwards in Israel we'll be
able to further see how our
dollars contribute to the Jew-
ish community as well as cele-
brate the 50th anniversary of
the United Jewish Appeal. The
idea behind the mission," Ms.
Green explained, "is to edu-
cate, inspire and develop a
deeper commitment among
the participants. It's a com-
pletely revitalizing exer-
peince."
Commenting on the Jubilee
Mission, its Chairman, David
Hermelin of Detroit, said,
"Through their participation
in this major mission, UJA
leaders are demonstrating
their commitment to Israel at
a time when there has been a
downturn in tourism. And in
their visits to Israel and to the
premission sites," he contin-
ued, "they will demonstrate
their interest in World Jewry,
which prompted them, and our
other contributors, to enable
the UJA/Federation Cam-
paign to raise $720 million in
1987."
Despite a substantial
decrease in American tourism
to Israel this year, participa-
tion in UJA missions dunng
the first seven months of 1988
increased by 24 percent.

Two Israelis Sail Into Trouble On Yom Kippur
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) Two
Israeli yachtsman" escaped
being called home from the
Olympic Games in Seoul,
South Korea, for apparent
violation of strict orders not to
compete on Yom Kippur.
The contestants, Dan and
Ran Torten, who are brothers,
sailed their 470-class boat,
although other members of the
Israeli Olympic squad refused
to participate in events sched-
uled on Yom Kippu-, even
though it meant elimination.
Initial reports said the Tor-
tens would not be allowed to
continue in the yachting com-
petition.
However Israel Radio said
that they would be allowed to
finish the games, but would
face disciplinary action when
they return to Israel.
The brothers admitted they
had sailed their boat off the
coast at Pusan, but insisted it
was a practice run and they
were not competing in the
race.
Initial results of the race
placed them ninth, but later
they were dropped from the
contest for not having fin-
ished.
Yitzhak Ofek, president of
Israel's Olympic Committee,
said the fact they had not
finished indicated that from
their point of view, they were
not in the race.
Four other Israeli competi-
tors, including another yacht-
ing team, forfeited their
events because of Yom Kip-
pur.

The Lost Art of Prayer
A guest editorial by Samuel
Rosenbaum, executive vice
president of the Cantors
Assembly, the world's largest
body ofhazzanim.
During this holy day season
Rosh Hashonah, Yom Kip-
{>ur, Succoth even the most
uke-warm Jew tried to go to
shul and join in prayer with
fellow-religionists. But it is a
sad reality of our time that
prayer as a practical skill has
become a lost art. So each year
a variety of proposals to refur-
bish that art on the lips and in
the hearts of Jews is put for-
ward with little if any suc-
cess.
The growing number of
advertisements in the Anglo-
Jewish press offering to teach
people how to pray, or at least
participate in a service, is tes-
timony to the demise of the art
of praying. Most of the time,
however, what is offered is the
temptation of a quick fix
five easy lessons on how to
pray, or a new kind of lowest-
common-denominator prayer
service that will tax neither
the brain nor the staying
capacity of the would-be wor-
shipper.
Rabbis, hazzanim and con-
cerned laymen have long been
aware of the desperation of
those who wish to pray but
cannot. Many cures have been
suggested and tried. Most of
them have failed, not for an
absence of sincerity or deter-
mination but for lack of insight
into the real source of the
trouble.
The root problem of this lost
art of prayer is to be found in
the illiteracy and alienation of
the would-be worshipper.
Attempts to find an easy solu-
tion can only fail since they
focus on changing the worship-
per's tools instead of changing
the worshipper himself. In
turn, each failure brings more
frustration and disappoint-
ment, driving the Jew further
away from the only path that
will bring him success: genuine
study, real preparation.
Learning to pray can take a
lifetime. For this reason the
problem will not be solved by
tampering with the prayer
book, or simplifying the ser-
vice, or changing the basic
purpose of prayer. All such
attempts have been tried and
found wanting.
It is time we faced the prob-
lem honestly. No one in his
right mind would hope to enjoy
golf or bridge or skiing or to
enter a profession or business
without the proper prepara-
tion, motivation, education
and equipment. And even
these are not enough. There
must also be the inspiration
gleaned from observing a skil-
led practitioner pursue that
art or that profession.
For example, how does a
concert hall or a ball park or a
theater treat its patrons? This
is not to suggest that prayer
falls into the category of enter-
tainment, but I believe much
can be learned from them.
Each of these institutions
exists because of the loyalty of
its devotees. It is in the best
interest of the concert hall,
ball park and theater to make
its product as accessible and
understandable as possible.
Yet no one would suggest that
a concert pianist slow down
the tempo of a composition so
that novices can follow the
score, or that a listener hear-
ing a Beethoven symphony for
the first time can fully grasp
all of the nuances and meaning
of the work. Nor does the
theater expose its back stage
or its lighting equipment to the
view of the audience in order
that a new patron may better
understand the play. When the
Superbowl professional foot-
ball championship is played,
the teams do not simplify the
rules so that the man or
woman who attends once a
year will get something out of
it.
On the contrary, these insti-
tutions offer the most authen-
tic performance they can, no
matter what difficulty this
may present to the uninitiated.
In the normal course of events,
a person who is really inter-
ested in music, theater or foot-
ball will read a book, take
lessons or attend enough con-
certs or ball games so that he
or she begins to understand
and appreciate what's going
on. After that, the concertgoer
or football fan can participate
at a level that brings growing
satisfaction and pleasure.
A Jew cannot come to the
service spiritually naked, intel-
lectually bankrupt, and liturgi-
cally unskilled and expect to
get something out of it. It
takes wanting, preparation
and knowledge.
We cannot hope to revitalize
prayer by catering to the low-
est level, or by changing the
rules or editing the liturgy to
accommodate the inept. We
serve the Jewish community
best by conducting the most
authentic, most sincere and
most genuine service we can.
The test for the effective-
ness of a service is the reaction
of the experienced worshipper
the knowledgeable one.
How does it affect him? Let
the novice begin to sit among I and practice. Sooner or later
Jews at prayer. Let him follow the experience or others will
their example. Let him study | inspire and touch him.

Toxic Language; Cooperative Efforts
By RABBI
MARC H. TANENBAUM
"Wise men, be guarded in
your words."
That is a teaching in the
"Ethics of the (Synagogue)
Fathers," an instruction that
came to mind as I watched the
summit meeting last month
between New York Mayor Ed
Koch and the Rev. Jesse
Jackson.
I don't know what actually
went on between them, but for
me, it suggested that there is
an important lesson to be
learned by many leaders from
family therapy.
The surest way to under- \
mine a family or a marriage is
to engage in the unbridled use
of toxic language. Toxic
language poisons the family
atmosphere, and it can just as
surely poison and undermine
relations between racial and
religious groups.
Studies in prejudice instruct
us that the danger of verbal
violence is that frequently it
leads to physical violence.
Without minimizing real
problems, both blacks and
Jews need to be aware that the
strongest cooperation and
respect in the United States
Congress exists between
members of the Black
Congressional Caucus and the
Congressmen who are Jewish.
Predominantly Jewish
voters helped elect black
mayors in Philadelphia, Los
Angeles, Detroit, and Atlanta.
And it is superfluous to recall
the profound understanding
and empathy the late Dr.
Martin Luther King had for
central Jewish concerns, and
the reciprocal trust that the
Jewish people posited in him.
We have had more than
enough examples of hostility
and toxic words. Leaders of
both communities are needed
who are healers, and who
believe in therapy for our
larger human family.
Letter to The Editor
Dear Editor:
The Facing History Holo-
caust Studies Institute and the
Facing History follow-up
workshop funded by the Palm
Beach County Jewish Federa-
tion were a great success.
Teachers who participated in
the institute in July and in the
follow-up workshop on Aug. 25
were all very enthusiastic
about the Facing History pro-
gram.
The many consultants,
including those from Harvard
and Alan Stoskopf from the
Facing the History Founda-
tion, all did an excellent job
presenting the institute and
the follow-up workshop. I
would like to thank the mem-
bers of the Palm Beach County
Jewish Federation for making
these quality programs availa-
ble for Palm Beach County
teachers.
Sincerely,

Volume 14 Number 31
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM, (JTA) Iraq
could be the second Arab coun-
try to negotiate peace with
Israel, according to President
Hosni Mubarak of Egypt,
whose country under the late
Anwar Sadat was the first.
Mubarak offered that upbeat
assessment during a conversa-
tion with the new Israeli
ambassador to Egypt, Profes-
sor Shimon Shamir.
While it is not entirely with-
out credibility, Israeli officials
are more interested in and
pleased with Mubarak's
invitation to Shamir for a pri-
vate tete-a-tete.
The Israeli envoy had just
presented his credentials at
the presidential palace in
Cairo, one of 11 ambassadors
to do so.
But only Shamir and the new
ambassador from Iraq were
asked to stay for separate,
substantive conversations with
the president after the ceremo-
nies.
Shamir is no stranger to
Cairo. He founded and headed
the Israeli Academic Center
there and is considered his
country's foremost expert on
Egypt and Egyptian affairs.
Mubarak's remarks to him,
behind closed doors, were
reported in Yediot Achronot by
its usually well-informed Arab
affairs correspondent, Smadar
Perry.
The Israeli newspaper
quoted the Egyptian president
as telling the ambassador from
Jerusalem, "There is an Arab
partner."
According to the report,
Mubarak numbered Iraq
among the moderate Arab
states.
Moderate Rhetoric
Statements by Tariq Azziz,
the Iraqi foreign minister, and
other diplomats in Baghdad,
tend to bolster the notion that
Iraq is adopting more moder-
ate rhetoric with regard to
Israel.
But recently, following
Iraq's successes in the war and
cease-fire terms that were
favorable to Baghdad, Israel
has become increasingly
apprehensive.
Officials and commentators
in Jerusalem speak more than
ever of the possibility that
Iraq's vast and battle-
hardened army might be
turned against Israel in a
future Arab-Israeli war.
Although it is generally con-
ceded here that the Iraqi army
will stay massed on the Iran
border for some time to come,
Iraq's use of chemical warfare
and ballistic missiles is seen by
Israel as introducing a new
and dangerous elements into
the region that could be emu-
lated by Syria and other foes of
Israel.
Still, Iraq's closeness to
Egypt and its desire to main-
tain sympathy in the West,
despite its proven poison gas
outrages, lend credence and
interest to Mubarak's reported
opinion.


Destroyed Synagogue
Gets Aid and Condolences
Friday, October 7, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 5
By WILLIAM SAPHIRE
NEW YORK (JTA) The
500 to 600 congregants of a
Brooklyn synagogue vandali-
zed and destroyed by arsonists
have been given the use of a
nearby yeshiva for worship but
the synagogue's rabbi has no
idea when the charred building
can be repaired.
"It will take months. The
damage was extensive," Rabbi
Hillel David told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency. He could
offer no estimate of the cost.
The Orthodox rabbi was
emotionally drained a day
after the funeral for the syna-
gogue's six Torahs.
The Torahs had been pulled
from the Ark, rolled out on the
floor, and set on fire.
Intruders broke into the syn-
agogue, located in the heavily-
Jewish Midwood neighborhood
of Brooklyn, and spray-painted
a dozen swastikas on the inside
walls of the synagogue.
Jewish tradition requires
that desecrated Torah scrolls
must be placed in a coffin and
buried in a cemetery, as if they
were a deceased person.
Nearly 10,000 grieving Jews
attended the emotionally
charged funeral procession
that packed Brooklyn streets,
creating major traffic jams.
The burial was at Floral Park
Cemetery in Deans, New Jer-
sey.
Among the mourners were
Mayor Edwawrd Koch of New
York, New York's senior sen-
ator Patrick Moynihan, City
Council President Andrew
Stein, Controller Harrison
Goldin and Bronx Borough
President Howard Golden.
The ferocity of the attack on
Congregation Rabbinical Insti-
tute Sharai Torah shocked not
only the Jewish community but
the city at large.
Messages Of Sympathy
It drew messages of sympa-
thy from leaders of many
faiths.
Cardinal John O'Connor, the
Roman Catholic archbishop of
New York, described his reac-
tion.
"Horrible, absolutely horri-
ble. When I picked up the
paper and read the news, my
blood ran cold," O'Connor told
reporters after Mass at St.
Patrick's Cathedral Sunday.
Referring to two young-
sters, aged 12 and 15, who
were taken into custody Sun-
day on suspicion of the crime,
the cardinal asked, "Where
are these children getting that
kind of hatred?"

The Munich Agreement:----A Fatal Preamble
By ANDRE RYERSON
Sept. 30 marks the 50th
anniversary of the Munich
Agreement which gave the
Sudeten portion of Czechoslo-
vakia to Nazi Germany. The
principal architect of the
agreement, British Prime Min-
ister Neville Chamberlain, was
widely praised for averting
war and securing "peace in
our time." But as often hap-
pens, the perspective of time
has changed the profile of
events. Seemingly stiff-necked
and backward men have
turned heroic, while those of
dignity, as the theater of his-
tory slowly shifts the lighting,
appear indecent.
"The question for Ger-
many," Adolf Hitler told his
generals in November 1937,
"is where the greatest possible
conquest can be made at the
lowest cost." He would first
effect his plan to achieve "liv-
ing room for Germany by
conquering Austria and Cze-
choslovakia. He bullied the
leaders of Austria with threats
of violence, then seized the
country in March 1938. Similar
threats were directed against
Czechoslovakia on the claim
that Hitler was just supporting
the rights of German-speaking
Czechs in the Sudetenland. On
May 22, Germany troop move-
ments triggered world fears of
an imminent invasion. For.
once in the decade, a sensible
response occurred: France and
the Soviet Union promptly
declared their commitment to
fulfill their treaty obligations
to defend Czechoslovakia,
Britain cautiously joined them,
and Hitler was compelled to
retreat. Had the democracies
maintained this policy, even as
late as the spring of 1938,
World War II might well have
been prevented.
Such was not to be. Terri-
fied by Europe's coming so
close to war in May, Chamber-
lain began a feverish campaign
to placate Hitler, and so, he
hoped, save the world from
war. By doing the former how-
ever, Chamberlain subverted
the chance of accomplishing
the latter. Chamberlain
demoralized the French by tel-
ling them that if the Czechs
stood firm against Hitler and
France supported the Czechs,
Britain would not stand by
France. Chamberlain then has-
tened to Hitler's mountain
retreat on Sept. 15 and prom-
ised to deliver the Sudetenland
to Germany. On Sept. 30, with-
out Czech consent, the Munich
Agreement was signed by Ital-
ian dictator Benito Mussolini,
Hitler, Premier Edouard
Daladier of France, and Cham-
berlain, giving the Sudenten-
land to Germany. Hitler was
happy to sign a brief statement
that Chamberlain thereupon
presented him, promising Brit-
ain peaceful relations there-
after. And so the ties that
should have joined the demo-
cracies were dissolved by
Chamberlain's adventure in
personal diplomacy, as the
betrayal of an anti-fascist ally
was announced to the world as
a "peace initiative."
Chamberlain returned home
from Munich without the
slightest doubt that he had
performed an act of great
nobility. Nor was he alone.
President Franklin Roosevelt
cabled his congratulations to
Chamberlain. Fifty-nine per-
cent of all Americans initially
approved of the Munich Agree-
ment, while Gertrude Stein
announced, with a straight
face, that Hitler ought to be
awarded the Nobel Peace
Prize. More perceptive, Dalad-
ier flew home from Munich
with a sense of shame.
As for Hitler, he judged the
leaders to be such cowards
that in private conversation he
later characterized them as
"little worms." On March 15,
1939, he violated the Munich
Agreement not six months
old by invading the rest of
Czechoslovakia. Rather than
securing peace, the Munich
Agreement assured Hitler that
the democracies would do
nothing to check Germany's
program of aggression.
With the Munich Agree-

ment, it should be noted,
Chamberlain surrendered no
British land. Nor did Daladier
give up a single inch of French
soil. Munich turned on some-
thing far more insidious, and
more tempting, than an act of
national sacrifice (much less of
surrender) by the two demo-
cracies: It involved instead
"the sacrifice of others," made
in the hope of keeping their
own nations safe from war.
The logic was: Let an expan-
sionist state feed on a few
small countries of marginal
interest to the West, and its
aggressive appetite will be
satisfied. What Britain and
France "gave up" was the
national integrity of a third
party, itself excluded from the
conference: Czechoslovakia.
To join in this sordid act, it
was necessary for the demo-
cracies to view the Czechs in a
certain light. Revealing a reac-
tion rooted in psychology,
Chamberlain was utterly cal-
lous toward the weaker, vic-
timized power of the dispute,
but infinitely understanding of
the bully. His position alter-
nated between viewing Cze-
choslovakia almost as a provo-
cateur for leading Europe into
war by not ceding portions of
her territory to Germany, and
treating the dispute as a dist-
ant and obscure quarrel of no
consequence to Britain: "How
horrible, fantastic, incredible
it is that we should be digging
trenches and trying on gas
masks here because of a quar-
rel in a far-away country
between people of whom we
know nothing.'
This simple argument,
offered by Chamberlain in
1938, has since enjoyed an
extended life. It was used by
those who objected to Ameri-
can involvement in the defense
of South Korea, and later of
South Vietnam, following
Allied efforts to resist acts of
communist aggression, glaring
in the first case, disguised as a
civil conflict for a time in the
second. Why should Ameri-
cans, a sensible and modest
people, sacrifice their sons in
battle "because of a quarrel in
a far-away country between
people of whom we know noth-
ing?" The answer is that
aggression and expansion, if
allowed to go unchecked,
beget more and worse

Academic Initiative:
An English University In Israel
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM, (JTA) An
Israeli university teaching in
English. Simcha Dinitz has
nurtured this idea as his own
private dream for years
ever since he served as Israel's
ambassador to Washington in
the late 1970s.
Now, as chairman of the
Jewish Agency for Israel, he
has the authority, the prestige
and the resources to try and
implement it. And as he told
the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, he has already set
about it with vigor.
The universities of Tel Aviv
and Beersheba have responded
to his initial feelers with enthu-
siasm, he said in an interview.
The Hebrew University of
Jerusalem, where Dinitz
served as vice president for
five years until his election as
chairman of the World Zionist
Organization-Jewish Agency
Executive earlier this year, is
more stuffy and conservative.
But he believes they, too,
will see "that this is a great
idea" and indeed that the new
university should be housed in
the Hebrew University's Givat
Ram campus in West Jerusa-
lem. Since most of Hebrew
University has moved over the
past two decades to its campus
on Mount Scopus, in East Jer-
usalem, the Givat Ram loca-
tion is only sparsely inhabited.
Dinitz said that two interna-
tionally known scholars are
working on blueprints.
He himself proposes to get
the ball rolling immediately by
convening a top-level confabu-
lation of representatives from
the government, WZO, Coun-
cil for Higher Education and
individual universities.
If the Hebrew University's
buildings are made available,
he said, the envisioned univer-
sity should be self-supporting,
with students paying some
$5,000 a year in tuition. This is
a great deal more than the
average in Israeli universities,
Dinitz noted, but much less
than the average private
American university charges.
Dinitz would like to see two
or three famed Jewish Nobel
laureates attached to the
teaching staff during the first
year to give the unique institu-
tion a dramatic and prestigious
start.
The university would strive
for excellence, awarding
degrees first bachelor's and,
soon after, master's recog-
nized and respected the world
over.
Dinitz regards the project as
the embodiment of what he
believes must be the twin foci
of Zionist effort at the end of
the 20th century: Jewish edu-
cation and some experience in
Israel for as many young peo-
ple in the Diaspora as possible.
With the language barrier
removed, Dinitz reasons, Jew-
ish youngsters could live and
study here not merely for sum-
mer courses or one-year pro-
grams, but for a full university
cycle.
"And they'd be learning
Hebrew naturally, as part of
living here. There would be
friendships and marriages,
and a great deal of eventual
aliyah," he said.
But all the students, regard-
less of where they eventually
settle, would carry with them
through life a profound and
sustained Jewish-Israeli learn-
ing experience.
For Dinitz, this same philos-
ophy molds his approach to
Soviet Jewry at this time of
change and evolution in the
Soviet Union as a whole, and
for the Jewish community
there in particular.
Draft-Dodge Scam
TEL AVIV (JTA) A
ranking police official
contended that the number of
draft evaders is much higher
than the Israel Defense Force
high command is prepared to
admit.
Shimon Savir, who heads the
serious crimes division of the
national police, testified that a
single doctor was responsible
for getting more than 100 men
out of military service on fake
medical data.
He was referring to a draft-
dodging ring in which IDF
officers of relatively high rank
and non-commissioned officers
allegedly worked in collusion
with civilian doctors to sell
exemptions from compulsory
military service.
The ring was exposed with
J111VW o1
w
An exhibition of 250 photographs by war photographer Robert
Capa is on display at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Some 120
photos in the exhibit, "Stormy Years," were taken during Israel's
War of Independence and have been donated by Robert Capa's
brother, Cornell, to the musuem's permanent collection. Cornell
Capa, also a photographer, poses with a picture of his late
brother, who was killed in 195U covering the French withdrawal
from Indochina.
the announcement of the
arrest of eight IDF personnel
and eight civilians, mostly
medical doctors.
The scandal sent shock
waves through the military
establishment and the public.
But the IDF brass insisted
that only "a few rotten
apples" were involved. Gen.
Dan Shomron, the chief of
staff, accused the news media
of blowing the episode out of
proportion.
He contended that only a
handful of recruits had been
fraudulently exempted and
that a few reservists had their
call-ups postponed or canceled
as a result of the ring's opera-
tion.
Savir, however, said in court
that just one of the accused
doctors was responsible for the
avoidance of military service
by an entire company well
over 100 soldiers. He said that
if the doctor "had continued
with this system, it would have
reached a battalion" over
500 men.
Savir was referring to Dr.
Solomon Kaplan, 51, of Bat
Yam, a physician employed by
Kupat Holim, the Histadrut
health care agency. He is
accused of supplying false
medical reports over a six-
month period. The court has
ordered him detained in
custody.
Portugal To
Upgrade Ties
With Israel
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) Portugal
will soon upgrade its diplo-
matic representation in Israel.
President Mario Soares of
Portugal told Israeli Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres here
that his country has decided to
appoint a resident ambassador
to Israel and will do so "in a
matter of months."
Portugal presently has a
non-resident ambassador
accredited to Israel. Israel
maintains a full diplomatic
mission in Lisbon, headed by a
career foreign service official
with ambassadorial rank.
SYNAGOGUE FIRE: A firefighter inspects the damage to a
Brooklyn synagogue which was heavily damaged by fire.
The synagogue's 82-year-old rabbi and his wife who occupied
an upstairs apartment were also injured in the blaze. The
two-story building is located about ten blocks from another
synagogue that was vandalized and burned by arsonists
earlier. Fire marshals report that the cause of the fire is
still under investigation. AP/Wide World Photo.
NJCRAC Condemns
U.S. Investigation Of
Israeli Labor Practices
NEW YORK The Israel
Task Force of the National
Jewish Community Relations
Advisory Council (NJCRAC)
issued a statement expressing
outrage over the decision of
the United States Trade Rep-
resentative to include Israel in
a list of countries to be investi-
gated for violations of interna-
tionally recognized labor
rights.
"It is incomprehensible to us
how a democratic country such
as Israel, with one of the
strongest labor movements in
the world, should be put on a
list along with countries which
do not permit or severely
restrict trade union activity,"
the NCJRAC statement said.
"Israel has never prohibited
legitimate trade union activity
in the West Bank and Gaza
Strip," the statement added.
The Trade Representative
had added Israel after receiv-
ing a petition from the Arab
American Anti-Discrimination
Committee (AAADC) alleging
violations of Palestinian work-
ers' rights in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip. A hearing has
been scheduled for mid-
November, and NJCRAC has
asked the Jewish Labor Com-
mittee to testify on its behalf.
The NJCRAC is the coordin-
ating, planning and advisory
body for the field of Jewish
community relations. Its 11
national and 114 community
member agencies represent
the overwhelming majority of
affiliated Jews in the United
States.
"This issue has been investi-
gated for more than a decade
by internationally respected
organizations, including the
International Labor Organiza-
tion, and not one has ever
found any basis for the allega-
tions made by the AAADC,"
said Michael A. Pelavin,
NJCRAC Chair.
"We are confident that
should the hearings go for-
ward as planned, the allega-
tions will be proven false and
Israel will be vindicated," the
NJCRAC statement declared.
However, the NJCRAC also
noted that the hearing by itself
would provide a highly politi-
cized form for Israel's detrac-
tors to further their propa-
ganda war against the Jewish
state.

From Dormancy To Rebirth:
A Hungarian Jewish Revival
Israel's Economy Recovers
By EDWARD SEROTTA
UJA Press Service
BUDAPEST, HUNGARY -
For years no one could identify
the number of Jews in Hun-
gary. The last census was
of the Dohany Synagogue, the
largest in Eastern Europe,
said, "Every year our class-
rooms become more and more
crowded. People are happy to
acknowledge their Jewishness
now, and there is no longer a
week that goes by when we
don't have a bar mitzvah in
Budapest. Five years ago, I
wouldn't have even
dreamt it."
Chief Rabbi Alfred Schoner of the Dohany Synagogue in Budapest teaches young students in the
synagogue's school. Aided by the JDC, with funding provided by the United Jewish
Appeal/Federation Campaign, almost every facet of the Hungarian Jewish community's
operations are expanding. UJA Press service Photo/Edward Serotta
taken in 1944 (over 700,000)
and that was used by the
Nazis, who murdered 600,000.
After the war, Hungary's
remaining Jews become one of
the quietest communities in
Europe.
But the Hungary of today is
a far different place from what
it was in decades past. The
country has one of the highest
standards of living in Eastern
Europe. Citizens can travel
freely, and there has been an
exchange of diplomats
between Jerusalem and
Budapest, along with talk of
direct El Al flights. Today, the
Jews of Hungary, now esti-
mated at around 80,000, have
begun to enjoy a bona fide
rebirth.
Aided by the American Jew-
ish Joint Distribution Commit-
tee, which in turn receives
virtually all of its funds from
the United Jewish Appeal/Fed-
eration Campaign, almost
every facet of the Hungarian
Jewish community's opera-
tions are expanding.
Whereas only a handful of
afternoon Talmud Torah
classes were held five years
ago, today there are 12 classes
held regularly each week, and
more than 500 students
attend. The Anne Frank High
School has had a steady
increase in enrollment over the
past three years, and 80 stu-
dents will attend this year. The
Rabbinical Seminary, which in
years past limped along with a
combined total of five rabbinic
and cantorial students, now
has a total of 12 (five studying
for the rabbinate).
Chief Rabbi George Landes-
man typifies much of the new
Jewish spirit. He has a syna-
gogue pulpit, teaches at a Tal-
mud Torah, directs a choir,
works daily as chief curator of
the Jewish Archives, and
spends his summers attending
the Jewish summer camp at
Lake Balaton, which is also
JDC-supported. In the last
year, Rabbi Landesman has
attended conferences in Lon-
don and taken his choir to
Israel, Germany and Yugoslav-
ia.
Another of the city's chief
rabbis, Josef Doman, main-
tains a pulpit, teaches full time
at the rabbinical seminary, and
is the editor-in-chief of "New
Life," a 7,000-circulation bi-

Chief Rabbi Alfred Schoner
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Israel's economy as a whole
has been able to overcome the
disruptions caused by the
Palestinian uprising in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
But some sectors, heavily
dependent on the large Arab
market, have suffered severe
losses, according to the semi-
annual report of the Bank of
Israel.
The central bank reported
that the economic slowdown of
the early months of this year
has been reversed.
The economy has adjusted to
the situation in which Palestin-
ian day laborers from the terri-
tories frequently fail to show
up for their jobs, the report
said.
The main reasons for the
slowdown were shrinking
demand and a 40 percent drop
in the number hours worked by
Arab laborers.
But the economy is now sta-
bilizing and some sectors are
expanding.
Nevertheless, because resi-
dents of the territories have
cut back on their purchases
from Israel, consumer indus-
tries have reported a 40 per-
cent drop in sales.
Especially hard hit are the
medical drug industry which
reported a 25 percent decline,
and the sale of cigarettes,
down an overall 15 percent.
One brand popular with
Arabs, called "Time," suffered
a 35 percent loss of sales.
The manufacturer of a pro-
duct called "Cheap-Choc" has
called for a counter-boycott of
goods manufactured in the ter-
ritories, Yediot Achrdnot
reported this week.
Israeli Arabs are benefiting
from the unrest in the territor-
ies. Before the uprising,
Israelis drove regularly to the
West Bank and Gaza Strip to
shop for bargains.

Judaism And Its Values:
A Discovery Weekend
Mission =====
given the opportunity to see
how their contributions benefit
a variety of people and pro-
grams in Israel during either a
pre-mission there, or in Euro-
pean countries including Bel-
gium, France, Denmark,
Poland, Hungary, Romania or
Morocco, North Africa.
Among the highlights of the
Jubilee pre-missions will be
visits to educational institu-
tions and meetings with local
Jewish community leaders;
trips to American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC)
sponsored projects to witness
the countless lives that have
been touched through its pro-
grams of relief, rescue, reha-
bilitation, and Jewish educa-
tion; and commemorations at
European sites of massacres
and extermination during the
Holocaust.
The Moroccan pre-mission
will include visits to Casab-
lanca and Marrakesh, where
participants will be treated to
a Kosher Fantasia, including
Berber dancers, acrobats,
snake charmers and armed
horsemen.
The pre-mission to Israel will
focus on the Galilee, Israel's
northern district. Participants
will be briefed on "Israel s
Political Structure On The Eve
of Election Day," and will visit
a museum, attend the theater
and visit a naval base.

The United Jewish Appeal/
Federation Campaign is the
major American fundraising
instrument for the support of
humanitarian programs and
social services in the U.S.,
Israel and 34 other countries.
Thoughtful and intelligent
answers to the question, "Why
Be Jewish" will be answered
at a Discovery weekend
seminar on October 14-16 at
the Palm Hotel in West Palm
Beach.
Discovery is not a nostalgic
reiteration of Jewish tradi-
tions and history, but a bold
and compelling display of
Judaism's past, present and
future vitality. The seminar
examines a wide range of
issues in multi-dimensional
sessions and workshops.
Developed by leading edu-
cators and scientists and
adapted by Aish HaTorah, an
organization with an ability to
captivate critically thinking
Jews with the profound mean-
ing of our heritage, the
seminar will explore: Codes of
the Torah, a provocative pre-
sentation of hidden codes dis-
covered in the Torah through
computer research; Love Sex
and Marriage, an eye-opening
and pragmatic discussion of
Judaism's insights into the
meaning of relationships, mar-
riage, commitment, love and
infatuation; Mysticism In The
Hebrew Language, a portrayal
of how only in Hebrew does
the structure of each word
contain the meaning of the
idea it expresses; and much
much more.
The seminar starts 5 p.m.
Friday, October 14, through
5 p.m. Sunday, October 16.
The cost is $155 (based on
double occupancy), which
includes accommodations, all
meals, gratuities and tips.
Space is limited to 150 partici-
pants.

Envoy Could Read Peace "Road Map"
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) A
34-member group of Middle
East and foreign policy
experts urged that the next
president of the United States
make one of his first priorities
the appointment of a special
envoy to the Middle East.
The envoy would promote
the peace process and press
for an end to the escalating
arms race in the region.
The Presidential Study
Group on U.S. Policy in the
Middle East warned that the
danger of a new war in the
region is increasing because of
the arms race and the end of
the Iran-Iraq War.
The study group is co-
chaired by former Vice Presi-
dent Walter Mondale and
Lawrence Eagleburger,
former undersecretary of state
for political affairs.
They spoke at a news confer-
ence at which the report,
prepared under the auspices of
the Washington Institute for
Near East Policy, was
released. The group, which
includes representatives of the
various presidential conten-
ders in the spring primary
campaign, has been working
on the study since last
October.
Mondale said the Middle
East envoy must be seen as
having the confidence of both
the president and the
secretary of state.

sador to Italy, Mordechai
Drory, joined in a toast, in
Hebrew.
Czechoslovakia severed dip-
lomatic ties with Israel follow-
ing the 1967 Six-Day War and
they have not been restored.
Later, the Czech ambassa-
dor to Italy, Norbert Zudek,
was quoted in the newspaper
La Republica as saying the will
exists in his country to
improve relations with Israel.
The exhibit, which was for-
mally opened by President
Francesco Cossiga of Italy, is
devoted to Jewish art and cul-
ture from the Emilia-Romagna
region of Italy.
One section features Jewish
treasures from Prague, which
were rescued from the Nazis.
These include 200 objects from
synagogues and museums in
Czechoslovakia, textiles,
engravings, furnishings, silver
and paintings.
Much of it was earmarked by
Hitler for "a museum of an
extinct race," to be established
after the Jews were extermin-
ated.
The exhibit will be open in
Ferrara until, after which it
will tour Europe.

Shultz
Reports On
Human
Rights
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Secretary of State George
Shultz, concluding two days of
talks here with Soviet Foreign
Minister Eduard Shevard-
nadze, indicated that further
progress on human rights has
been made.
"I think that the situation is
reasonably promising, but we
are not quite there yet,"
Shultz said.
He spoke to reporters after
President Reagan met with
Shevardnadze, at the conclu-
sion of the meetings between
the two foreign ministers.
The talks were expected to
be the last major meeting
between the two superpowers
during the Reagan administra-
tion.
But Shultz stressed that the
administration will continue
working with the Soviets "to
accomplish as much as can be
accomplished" in the four
areas that all their discussions
have focused on: arms control,
human rights, regional issues
and bilateral issues.
The secretary said that over
the three years, these meet-
ings have become routine and
the Soviets have acknowl-
edged that such issues as
human rights are part of the
regular agenda between the
two countries.
He said he believes this pat-
tern will continue in the next
administration, regardless of
whether Vice President
George Bush or Gov. Michael
Dukakis is elected president.
The human rights issue
focused on the Conference on
Security and Cooperation in
Europe now being held in
Vienna as a follow-up to the
1975 Helsinki Accords. The
United States and other West-
ern nations are maintaining
that the conference must con-
clude additional written guar-
antees on human rights before
talks on reducing conventional
arms can begin.
Stressing that "deeds are
more important than words,"
Shultz said that in assessing
the Soviet Union's human
rights record, the United
States looks at emigration fig-
ures, political and religious pri-
soners, and the cases of di-
vided families.
"We've seen quite a bit of
change in Soviet behavior of
other Eastern European coun-
tries," he said.
But he added that in addition
to changes in behavior, there
must be changes in language
produced in Vienna about
human rights. He noted, in
particular, that the United
States wants the Soviets to
allow groups to monitor com-
pliance with the Helsinki
Accords.
Shultz said that the United
States had received assur-
ances that the Soviets are
drafting new legislation on
religious freedom, emigration
and changes in the criminal
code- U.S. and Soviet
experts are to meet Dec. 16 on
ways of halting their prolifera-
tion.
