Monson Addresses 'Having It All: A Dilemma That Spans Generations'
The role of the Jewish family
in the community has changed
over the past decade, accor-
ding to Dr. Rela Geffen Mon-
son, Professor of Sociology
and Dean of Academic Affairs
at Gratz College in Philadel-
phia. In the past, families
could be expected to produce
children who matured into suc-
cessful contributors to the
Jewish community, she claims.
Today, the community has
found itself in a role reversal
and a more responsible posi-
tion. It is expected to provide
strength for the family as well
as establish support groups for
the increasing number of peo-
ple who move far away from
In the first of a two-part
Women's Division Education
Forum on October 20, Dr, Mon-
son spoke on "Having It All: A
Dilemma That Spans The Gen-
erations," at the Palm Hotel in
West Palm Beach.
Focusing specifically on
Dr. Rela Geffen Monson
women, Dr. Monson discussed
the "Superwomen Image,"
pointing out how some women
try to juggle both a career and
family and how they feel com-
pelled to do both jobs per-
fectly. As a result, many of
those women become dis-
tressed and frustrated when
they discover just how difficult
it is to do both.
"Some of the biggest
changes of all have taken place
in the traditional families. Men
and women are re-negotiating
their roles to try and work out
their concerns." Monson
stressed that "we must change
our views on who does what in
the Jewish Community and
become more flexible." She
concluded that "as a whole,
Jewish women feel confident
with who they are and where
they belong. That knowledge
leads to confidence." The first program of the WD Education Forum, "Jewish Women:
The second program of the The Challenge of Change,'' was held October 20, at the Palm Hotel,

| Solemnity Marks Anniversary
s Of Anti-Jewish Events

ROME (JTA) Italian Jews marked the 50th anniver-
sary of the imposition of anti-Semitic laws by the fascist
regime and the 45th anniversary of the Nazi deportation of
the Jews of Rome.
Solemn ceremonies at the Campidoglio (the city hall)
were attended by Giovanni Spadolini, president of the
Italian Senate, and other leading political figures.
Prominent members of the Jewish community included
Chief Rabbi Elio Toaff of Rome and Tullia Zevi, president
of the organization of Italian Jewish communities.
The occasion served to rally Jewish protests against the
upcoming visit here of Annelise Kappler, widow of a Nazi
war criminal who ordered the massacre of dozens of people
in the Ardeatine pits of Rome during the war.

Century Village:
Crowd Expected At UJA/
Federation Campaign Kickoff
A cantonal concert, an offic-
ial Israeli update and a local
Rabbi's perspective on Israel
will entertain Century Village
residents during the annual
Century Village Kickoff of the
UJA/Federation Campaign, on
November 15.
Campaign co-chairs, Nathan
Cohen and Samuel Wadler,
expect to attract at least 1000
residents for the Kickoff, to be
held in conjunction with "Yid-
dish Culture", at 10 a.m.,
usually held in the Village
Clubhouse at that time.
The program will include
Rabbi Richard K. Rocklin,
spiritual leader of the Lake
Worth Jewish Center; Major
General (Ret.) Aharon Doron,
a visiting Israeli/Federation
Consultant; and David Feuer,
Cantor of Temple Emanu-El of
Palm Beach. Also appearing
are two local students who
participated in last year's
March of the Living, to East-
ern Europe and Israel, who
will speak on their experi-
Major General Doron is visit-
ing south Florida as a repre-
sentative of the United Jewish
Appeal to consult with area
Federations and help with
their 1989 campaigns. Doron
was born in Germany and
immigrated to Israel in 1939
within the framework of
"Youth Aliyah."
Aharon Doron
Prior to Israel's independ-
ence, he was part of the Jewish
settlement police, a cover unit
for underground activities.
From 1948 to 1965 he served
in the Israel Defense Forces,
rising in rank to Major-
General, and participated in
the War of Independence,
Sinai Campaign, in which he
was in charge of the forces
that captured the Gaza Strip,
and the Six-Day War.
After his army service,
Doron assumed various roles,
among them advisor to the
Chairman of the Jewish
Agency, and is currently
Director of Beth Hatefutsoth,
the Museum of the Jewish
Diaspora. (Please see Doron
profile in this issue.)
Cantor David Feuer, who
will perform a cantorial con-
cert, was born in Argentina
and began studying piano in
1953 in Santiago, Chile. In
1958, he returned to Argen-
tina and continued his musical
studies, studying Hazzanut
with Hazzan Kalmele Weiz.
In 1962, Feuer created and
directed the Israeli folk group
"Rinah," and participated in
many musical-cultural activi-
ties sponsored by A.M.I.A.
(Central Organization of Ash-
kenazic Jewry in Argentina).
Over the next two decades,
Feuer was heavily involved
with the cantorial music com-
munities in Argentina and
Uruguay. In recent years he
has devoted himself to the
revival of old, traditional melo-
dies for different festivals and
holy days. He has also com-
posed prolifically and his songs
are popular with young and old
throughout Buenos Aires.
Cantor David Feuer
Feuer's first experience as a
cantor in the United States
was in 1985 at Beth Jacob
Synagogue in Norwich, CT.
Since June 1986, he has been
Cantor of Temple Emanu-El of
Palm Beach where he is a
leader in the Adult Education
and Religious School pro-
grams. He has performed at
St. Andrew's School in Boca
Raton, the Royal Poinciana
Chapel, Bethesda-By-The-Sea,
the Jewish Community Cen-
ter, Morse Geriatric Center
and B'Nai B'rith in Palm
Beach. Feuer is now the 2nd
Vice President of the Cantor's
Association of Florida.
Originally from Minnesota,
Rabbi Rocklin received his
Rabbinical Degree and a Mas-
ters Degree in Hebrew Litera-
ture from the Jewish Theologi-
cal Seminary. Following that,
he completed another Masters
Degree in Guidance and Coun-
seling at the University of
North Carolina in Charlotte
and became a Transactional
Analysis therapist at the
Goulding Institute in Califor-
From 1970 to 1985, Rabbi
Rocklin was the spiritual
leader of Temple Israel in
Charlotte, N.C., where he was
also heavily involved in the
community, both Jewish and
secular, as well as with the
Federation/UJA Campaign. In
1985, the Rabbi came to Palm
Beach County to assume the
pulpit at the Lake Worth Jew-
ish Center. At that time, the
congregation was just begin-
ning with 200 members. Since
Rocklin has been there, he said
he has concentrated most of
his attention on getting the
congregation established and
finishing the building on Jog
Road. Since his arrival, the
Temple's membership has
grown to include 1100 mem-
Rocklin has been to Israel 14
times, most often as a mission
or group leader, which more
than qualifies him to speak on
the subject at the Century Vil-
lage event. He plans to high-
light the achievements, joy and
beauty that are found in the
country in order to contrast
the negativity he says we con-
stantly hear from the daily
news media.
"With these knowledgeable
speakers and the talented Can-
tor Feuer, we expect to draw a
very large crowd," said
Wadler. "This is our first
event of the UJA/Federation
campaign and we expect it to
be a great beginning."

Belated Pride;
Genocide Treaty
If it were not for the abysmal and embar-
rassingly lengthy hiatus between the time
President Harry Truman signed the Genocide
Treaty in 1948 and its Senate passage and
House voice-vote in recent days, there would
be cause for true pride in America's bold
But, 40 years have passed. This year, as the
world notes the 50th anniversary of the Night
of Broken Glass or Kristallnacht that
heinous landmark of a pogrom from which
world Jewry marks the beginning of the
Holocaust the United States can finally
stand with its colleagues in publicly denounc-
ing what we traditionally damn all too easily
with words.
William Proxmire, the retiring senator from
Wisconsin, it needs to be noted, did not rest in
the last 19 years. Daily, he railed against those
who would thwart the treaty's passage in the
Senate chamber. Appropriately, he has been
called "tenacious" and "indefatigable" and a
"watchdog over government waste" in his
specific areas of expenditure expertise.
After 31 years in the Senate, however, he
deserves equal praise for the undiminished
way in which he fought for the Genocide
Treaty enabling legislation.
Proxmire has said that it is a senator's role
"to set an example" and that he did.
And so, it is fitting that in its final incarna-
tion, the law will be called the "Proxmire
While the United States is the 100th nation
in the family of nations to have ratified the
treaty, we do so with belated pride.
In the future, we as a nation, will be able to
say in unhypocritical fashion that we call
genocide an international crime no matter its
As we do, we should recall Sen. Proxmire's
rationale for the bill's passage. He said the
legislation was mandatory because of the
"deliberate murder of six million Jews.
"They were gassed, lined up and shot and
they were worked to death. Why? Only
because they worshipped God in a different
Lebanon's Abrogated Treaty
The Lebanese Ambassador,
M. Rachid Fakhoury, appear-
ing nervous and shaky, deliv-
ered a confusing and contra-
dictory policy speech during
the closing week of the general
debate here. And no wonder!
Beirut was without a legiti-
mate government.
Fakhoury blamed all of his
country's woes on Israel while
at the same time, towards the
end of his anti-Israel diatribe,
admitted that the 14-year-old
civil war dividing faction
against faction was the basic
cause of the turmoil.
His address brought to mind'
one of the gravest errors,
indeed, political misdeeds,
committed not only by the
Gemayal government but also
by the Reagan Administration
as Israel's "Operation for
Peace In Galilee was coming
to a close in 1982.
In the first instance, the
weak Gemayal let himself be
swayed by Syria and pro-
Damascus elements to abro-
gate an historic agreement sol-
emnly signed by Lebanon and
Israel with the U.S. sitting in
as a witness and later ratified
by the Lebanese Parliament
an agreement that was tanta-
mount to a peace treaty. The
signing in Nahariyah took
place in a period in 1982 when
the Lebanese people were in a
state of euphoria over the fact
that the Israelis had liberated
them from the terror and jun-
gle rule of the PLO, who had
created a state within a subju-
gated Lebanon.
Article I of that treaty read:
"The Parties confirm that a
state of war between Lebanon
and Israel has terminated and
no longer exists." Article 4
made it clear that "the terri-
tory of each party will not be
used as a base for terrorist
activity against the other
party, its territory or its peo-
ple, and each party will pre-
vent the existence or organiza-
tion of irregular forces and
bands, or organizations, bases,
offices or infrastructure, the
aims and purposes of which
include incursions or any act of
terrorism into the territory of
the other party and safety of
its people ...'
A torn, divided and blood-
soaked Lebanon today is the
result of the abrogation of this
In the second instance, it is
now quite clear also that if
President Reagan and his
aides had stood with Israel and
not thwarted the valiant
Israeli army in its 1982 opera-
tion in Lebanon a campaign
that destroyed the PLO mili-
tarily and which had put the
Syrians to flight with the
smashing of their Soviet-
supplied missiles Washing-
ton would not have found itself
in an untenable situation with
its caged-in Marines at
Beirut's International Airport.
And the PLO would not have
been back nor would the Syri-
ans have had the chance to
reestablish and rearm their
supporters in the Bekaa Val-
Whatever critics inside and
outside of Israel may say about
Israel's heroic 1982 operation
in Lebanon, it continues to be
the view of this writer that the
campaign was a plus for Israel
and the world. Despite the
betrayal by both the U.S. and
the Gemayal regime, the main
objectives of the operation
were achieved:
The PLO state-within-a-
state in Lebanon was dest-
Israel's towns and villages
in Galilee are no longer at the
mercy of PLO rockets;
the northern borders have
been made more secure with
the added security zone. More-
over, the Reagan Adminsitra-
tion, reflecting on its past
errors in Lebanon, has entered
into several mutual military
and economic agreements with
Israel which bind the two
nations in an unbreakable
covenent of friendship.
Whoever will be the occu-
pant of the White House in the*
new administration, one thing
is certain: he, along with the
Congress, will find it in the
best interests of the United
states to work towards the
fulfillment of former Prime
Minister Menachem Begin's
aspiration to see Egypt, Israel
and Lebanon representing a
peaceful Mideast crescent
bringing a blessing to the
whole world.

Israeli Arab Arrested For Spying
TEL AVTV (JTA) An Israeli Arab was arrested earlier
this year for spying, a Tel Aviv district court disclosed.
The court lifted the blackout it imposed on the case of
Mahmud Masarwe, after ruling that tne accused is entitled
to appeal the detention order against him.
Masarwe, a resident of Baka al-Gharbiya village, is
charged with aggravated espionage, illegal possession of
firearms and incitement.
Court Backs Husseini Detention
JERUSALEM (JTA) The imprisonment without trial
of Palestinian activist Faisal Husseini was approved by a
Jerusalem district court recently.
Husseini, jailed three months ago, is serving his fourth
term under administrative detention.
He has never been formally charged or brought to trial,
but is being held under the emergency regulations of the
British Mandate, which Israel retained.
Husseini, 48, heads the Institute of Arab Studies in East
Jerusalem, which the Israeli authorities ordered closed for
a year when he was arrested.
Polio Patient Dies At 26
TEL AVIV (JTA) The first person taken ill in Israel's
recent polio outbreak died at Meir Hospital in Kfar Sava
But doctors said the death of Michaela Keren, 26, may
have been the result of another ailment, brought on by
lying prone in bed for many weeks.
They said she appeared to be making satisfactory
progress from the polio attack and they expressed shock at
her sudden death.
The Health Ministry has asked the deceased's family for
permission to perform an autopsy to determine the cause of
Keren worked as a secretary at the Carmel carpet
factory in Or Akiva.
Prisoner Of Conscience Dies
TEL AVIV (JTA) Alexander Zarhin, a Russian-born
inventor who was a prisoner of conscience in the Stalin era,
died here at the age of 91.
Zarhin invented a desalination process based on the
freezing of sea water, which was widely used abroad but
not adopted in Israel.
A student at the Leningrad Technological Institute, he
was arrested in 1934 for Zionist activities and sentenced to
five years internal exile. He came to Israel in 1947.
Sugar Daddies For Labor,Likud
TEL AVIV (JTA) Two Israeli-born multimillionaires
living abroad have contributed substantial sums of money
to the Labor Party and Likud campaign war chests,
Hadashot reported.
The newspaper said that Bruce (Baruch) Rappaport, who
lives in Switzerland, gave $1.5 million to Labor. The money
was transferred from a bank in Geneva.
Meshulam Riklis, the Israeli-American tycoon, sent $1
million to Likud through the First Boston Bank in New
York, Hadashot said.
The newspaper attributed its information to an "eco-
nomic source" with ties to both parties.
Israel And Soviet Union Link
TEL AVIV (JTA) Six cities in the Soviet Union have
become accessible to Israeli telephone users by direct
Until now, calls to the USSR had to be booked through
the international exchange operators, with frequent
Starting last week Israelis may reach Moscow, Lenin-
grad, Kiev, Tbilisi, Tashkent and Kishinev by dialing the
prefix 001, followed by 00 for access to the international
exchange and 7 for the country code.
The cities were chosen because of the frequency of past
operator-ordered calls. Reciprocal direct dial service from
the Soviet Union to Israel is not yet available.
The direct link was made possible by British Telecom
International. Israelis can now direct dial to 107 countries
around the world. ________

ume of her poetry is to be

Translated into practical
terms, this guiding principle
means more than the bright
airy buildings, wheelchair-
width doorways, elevators and
passageways and wheelchair-
width light switches and tele-
phones that are now requisite
in every modern institution for
the disabled. It means even
more than a skilled, multi-
disciplinary staff of physicians,
social workers, psychologists
and therapists, who not only
care for residents but help
them toward more independ-
ent living.
What it means is that resi-
dents are full and active part-
ners in the running of their
own home. Represented by an
elected Residents' Committee,
they are involved in every-
thing from approving new
admissions to organizing lei-
sure activities.
"Institutional rules and
spoon-feeding have no place
here," says hostel director,
veteran Israeli social worker,
Asher Harris. "An agreement
negotiated between residents
and staff ranges from nuts-

'Don't Let History Miss Us'
Visiting Israeli
Enlists Support
The Jewish nation has been
praying for over 2,000 years
for the return to our home-
land, the Land of Israel. It
happened in 1948, when the
world recognized our right to
exist. "And it would be terri-
bly sad if this opportunity to
build the Jewish country were
missed by history," explained
Aharon Doron, who describes
himself as a visiting concerned
"Supporting Israel should
not be connected with what is
currently happening there,"
Doron said. "It's not spilling
blood and fighting wars that
we're supporting. We need the
money to build the country.
"I know there's confusion
about the intifada," he contin-
ued, "but the most basic
important thing to remember
is that we need the support
regardless of what's happen-
ing there. It's the same Israel
no matter what."
Doron is in South Florida
this winter as a UJA represen-
tative, consulting with area
Federations, doing face-to-
face solicitations, conducting
speaking engagements, special
briefing sessions and offering
his help wherever needed.
"I'd like to convince people
that it's both an obligation and
a privilege to be associated
with Israel," the tall dark
Israeli said in a recent inter-
view. "If a Jew doesn't live in
Israel, he should do at least
two things: he should know
what's happening there and he
should support the country
according to his best ability.
Israel is a far cry from what it
should be and it needs every-
one's help to get better," he
Doron, 66, was born in Ger-
many and immigrated to Israel
in 1939 through, "Youth
Aliyah," after which he lived
on a kibbutz for ten years.
Prior to Israel's independence,
he was a part of the Jewish
Settlement police, which was a
cover unit for underground
activities. From 1948 to 1965,
he served in the Israel Defense
Forces, rising in rank to Major-
General. Doron took part in
the War of Independence, the
Sinai Campaign, in which he
was in charge of the forces
that captured the Gaza Strip,
and the Six-Day War.
After his army service,
Doron assumed a variety of
professional roles, including
advisor to the chairman of the
Jewish Agency. Currently he
is director of Beth Hatefut-
soth, the Museum of the Jew-
ish Diaspora.
Doron, a resident of Tel
Aviv, gives three reasons for
the work he does for the UJA
and world Jewish communi-
"I believe that Israel is the
country Jews should live in
and we must do all we can to
build it up," he began. His
second reason comes from liv-
ing there for 50 years and
partaking in Israel s develop-
ment. He feels a responsibility
to all those whose lives depend
on Israel's security and
growth and who ask him,
"What are you doing for us?"
Thirdly, his work is an expres-
sion of gratitude. "When I left
Germany for Israel, via Youth
Aliyah, I was given a new start
on life through the contribu-
tions of a very few concerned
Jews around the world,"
Doron explained. "At this
point in my life, I feel an
obligation to see that every
young person today gets his
start too."
Doron has been to the
United States many times, but
said this is his first visit as a
UJA consultant. "Wherever I
am, whatever I'm doing, I'm
prepared to see at least 100
people a day, individually or all
together," he said. "It doesn't
matter, as long as I can reach
Aharon Doron will be in

sion Breakfast and the Cen-
tury Village Kickoff Event

French Governor
Indicted For
War Crimes
PARIS (JTA) The man
who was governor of the Bor-
deaux region during the Nazi
occupation of France was
indicted for his role in the
mass deportations of French
Jews from that area between
1942 and 1944.
Maurice Sabatier, 91, faces
charges of "crimes against
humanity." His subordinate,
Maurice Papon, 79, was simi-
larly charged in June, but his
indictment was announced
only last week.
They were the No. 1 and No.
2 men respectively of the
Vichy regime in Bordeaux.
The investigating magistrate
is reported to have told Sabat-
ier's lawyers that regardless of
his advanced age, his indict-
ment is necessary in order to
press charges against Papon.
Both are accused by Nazi-
hunter Serge Klarsfeld and
many surviving Jews of having
helped the Nazis identify and
arrest local Jews, who were
subsequently deported to
death camps in Eastern

NY Governor Cuomo
To Address C JF General Assembly
M. Cuomo, Governor of the
State of New York, will be one
of the featured speakers at the
57th General Assembly of the
Council of Jewish Federations,
the major annual gathering of
North American Jewish com-
munity leaders scheduled for
New Orleans Nov. 16-20,1988.
Cuomo will discuss the issue
of "Responsibility and Service:
A National Perspective" as
part of the overall General
Assembly theme of "Areyvim
Zeh Lazeh: Responsibility and
Service Federation's Role in
Creating a Caring Commun-
ity." An estimated audience of
3,000 is expected for Cuomo's
address on Saturday evening,
Nov. 19, at the New Orleans
Also scheduled to speak at
the General Assembly are
Chairman of the Jewish
Agency Executive and Former
Israeli Ambassador to the
United States Simcha Dinitz,
who will comment on the need
for mutual responsibility and
caring between Israel and
North America; Chairman of
the Jewish Agency Board of
Governors Mendel I. Kaplan;
Thursday morning plenary
session; Professor Arnold
Eisen, Chairman of the
Department of Judaic Studies
at Stanford, University, who
will discuss the theme as it
relates to "Setting Priorities
For The Quality of Jewish
Life;" and CJF President
Mandell L. Berman, who will
deliver the keynote address.
Presently serving his second
term as New York State's
52nd Governor, Mario Cuomo
has had an impressive political
career. During his first term as
Governor (1983-1986), the
State was successful in pursu-
ing a "progressive pragmatic"
philosophy which centered on
programs to create jobs and
expand justice. He gained
national attention in 1984
when he delivered the keynote
address at the Democratic
Convention in San Francisco
and later that year, offered an
important statement on
Church-State relations at the
University of Notre Dame. In
1978, he was elected Lieuten-
ant Governor, after being
appointed Secretary of State
by Governor Carey in 1975.
In addition to major plenar-
ies with distinguished speak-
ers, the General Assembly will
also feature 15 forums, two of
which are symposiums, con-
sisting of formal presentations
by experts and panelists fol-
lowed by question-and-answer
A number of forums dealing
with domestic concerns will be
presented including:
A Continental Society:

the last eight years.
The other is Michael Dukakis
and Lloyd Bentsen, two fig-

experience in dealing with crit-

issues facing Israel and the
United States in the Middle
Quayle has far more hands-
on experience in matters of
Israeli security than either

of an ATBM system.
Unlike Bensten, Quayle has
traveled to Israel twice, in
1983 and 1987, to discuss stra-
tegic cooperation between the
U.S. and Israel.
In the 1989 Defense Authori-
zation bill, he worked for the
consideration of the ATBM
and Extended Air Defense
programs, which ensured
funding for the Israeli
"Arrow" project, currently set
at $100 million, to $130 mil-
Most recently, Quayle
helped to achieve the signing
of a historic Memorandum of
Agreement, which formalized
the "Arrow" project.
Quayle's decisive leadership
on the Senate Armed Services
resulted in $50 million being
used to fund Israeli defense
Israel, after all, views the
threat of ballistic missiles as
perhaps the most serious
security issue for the 1990s.
Michael Dukakis, mean-
while, has just talked, and
even his talk was insufficient
to prevent the enemies of
Israel from keeping a strong
and unambiguous statement of
support out of the Democratic
1988 platform. (Not a single
sentence of that document
dealt exclusively with Israel.)
While Dukakis has made
impressive promises, Reagan
and Bush have delivered on
U.S. assistance to Israel is
at an all-time high, and has
been converted from loans to

The Free Trade Area agree-

Indeed, George Bush's Mid-

foretold most of these accom-

other improvements in U.S-

come about over the last eight
It's no surprise that Quayle
has such a clear grasp of

recognized expert on national
defense issues. In the Senate,
he is well respected by his
colleagues as an authority on

Michael Barone, the co-
author of America's most
authoritative handbook on
American politics, wrote,
"Quayle has shown originality
of mind and a determination to
achieve his goals."
It comes as no surprise that
attacks on Quayle do not come
from those who deal seriously
with Israeli security policy.
Two tickets this year ask for
our trust. But only Bush and
Quayle have already proven
that they are worthy of it.
Gordon Zacks is chairman of the
Jewish Campaign Committee for

Jewish Coalition.
Sen. Lloyd Bentsen*
The Bentsen-Quayle
debate raised more questions
than "who won it?"
That one is easy. Never
before in presidential debate
history has the verdict been
more decisive.
Poll after poll has given
overwhelming preference to
Bentsen, but, more impor-
tantly, the polls report sub-
stantial lack of confidence in
Dan Quayle's readiness for
that "heartbeat-away" office.
American voters believe that
George Bush flunked badly in
his first "presidential" deci-
With months available to
think through that decision,
and with a range of experi-
enced, impressive alternatives
available Sen. Bob Dole (R-
Kan.), Rep. Jack Kemp (R-
N.Y.,), Howard Baker, Sen.
Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.), Sen.
Richard Lugar (R-Ind.), among
others he made a selection
that caused shock, embarrass-
ment, and deep concern, even
at the highest levels of the
Republican Party and the
Bush campaign.
The debate itself and the
post-debate analyses have
focused on how well Quayle
handle the presidency.
Not enough attention has
been paid to the importance of
the role as such.
How well would he carry out
assignments given him? What
kind of advice would he be
likely to give the president, if
any? What does his record tell
us of his likely influence with
the administration and the
Congress, including his poten-
tially important role as presid-
ing office of the Senate?
Perhaps the most biting
comment of all was made by a
leading columnist who specu-
lated that a Vice President
Quayle might not even be
asked to attend important
state funerals!
Unfortunately, George Bush
has very low standards by

which to judge the qualifica-
tions for an effective vice pres-
During his own two terms in
that office, he was given five
major assignments and
failed in all of them!
He headed the National
Narcotics Drug Interdiction
System, but the Reagan-Bush
years have seen an escalation
of the drug invasion, including
dealings with Panamanian
leader Manuel Noriega.
He chaired a special Task
Force on Combatting Terror-
ism, yet participated in the
sale of missiles to Iran in
exchange for hostages.
In 1984, he was charged to
resolve bilateral trade prob-
lems with Japan. Our trade
deficit with Japan has risen
from $22 billion in 1983 to $60
billion last year.
He chaired a Regulatory
Relief Task Force that turned
out to be a front for corporate
interests, with risks to public
safety and health.
In the period since 1982,
when Bush was appointed
chairman of a task force on
regulation of thrift institu-
tions, the number of ailing
Savings and Loans units sky-
rocketed from 100 to over 500
in 1988 a $50 billion bailout
bill for U.S. taxpayers.
The Quayle fiasco invites
comparison with Dukakis'
choice of Lloyd Bentsen.
Here the polls reflect, with-
out exception, an approval of
the selection and a tremendous
confidence in Bentsen's readi-
ness for the top job, should it
ever be necessary.
Attention has been directed
to the differences in policy on
some issues that have existed
between Dukakis and Bentsen.
But are those differences
greater than those that existed
between John Kennedy and
Lyndon Johnson or between
Ronald Reagan and George
Bush when they formed the
In each case, their agree-
ments overwhelmed their dis-
agreements. And when John-
son moved into the White
House, he understood the need
for basic continuity and for
basic loyalty to the administra-
tion of the late president.
Lloyd Bentsen will be a
great asset to President
Dukakis, loyalist as well as
challenger, and a reliable suc-
cessor if necessary.
All of the above is as rele-
vant for Jewish voters as it is
for the general electorate. But
in addition, there are grounds
for special concerns in the
selection of Dan Quayle. What-
ever else motivated the selec-
tion, it was surely a bow to the
far right in the GOP family -
and an enthusiastic joy espe-
cially for the Christian right.
Quayle's record on a wide
range of issues school pray-
ers, tuition tax credits, social
security, abortion, affirmative
action, nutrition and health
programs, housing, education,
Equal Rights Amendment and
much more run contrary to
the overwhelming consensus
of Jewish voters on these
His ignorance or insensitiv-
ity on Jewish issues is demon-
strated by his placing the Holo-
caust on the wrong continent
and in the wrong century, and
by his voting against the "yar-
mulke" legislation.
Despite some positive
actions affecting Israel, his
record on the most important
of all issues is simply awful.
AIPAC has identified 11
critical actions during Quayle's

Tragic anniversary slides by,
and the memory of millions
is betrayed.
Reprinted from the New York Post, Monday,
August 8, 1988.
This past summer saw the 50th anniversary of
the Evian Conference, at which the U.S. and 31
other democratic nations considered the fate of
650,000 Jews trying to flee Nazi terror in
Our democracies looked the frightened Jews
right in the eye and sold them out.
Our failure to meet our moral responsibilities
at Evian was an important piece of the mosaic
which, not long after, led to the murder of
millions of Jews and other peoples and to the
extinction of their vibrant cultures.
Yet a half a century later, on the commemora-
tive date of that ignoble event, hardly one voice
was raised, hardly one line written, in remem-
It was in a climate of increasing terror, with
tens of thousands of innocent and helpless
people clamoring for asylum, that President
Roosevelt organized the conference. It met in
the French resort town of Evian; Stalin's Soviet
Union and Mussolini's Italy refused to heed
FDR's call.
The 32 nations met July 6-14 under the
humanistic democratic precept that we are
indeed our brother's keepers. But in the end, the
free world would not provide even the fig leaf of
comforting words for the threatened Jewish
communities of Europe.
Britain's man proclaimed: "The United King-
dom is not a country of immigration."
Australia's candid emissary said ". .it will no
doubt be appreciated that we (Australia) have no
racial problem, (and) we are not desirous of
importing one. .."
And even the American delegate declared:
"The U.S. will not modify its already liberal
immigration policy."
Democracy betrayed itself.
Nazi Germany, which had not yet defined its
policy of "final solution," permitted repre-
sentatives of Jewish organizations within
the Third Reich to go to Evian and plead
for help. The World Jewish Congress was ,
there, along with a number of other *
Jewish organizations. They were not 4
accorded the courtesy of an opportunity c
to state their case, let alone any *'
The end was clear. On July 8, 1938, the
Herald Tribune reported: "Through their rep-
resentatives at the Evian conference on refu-
gees, the principal countries capable of receiv-
ing immigrants banged and bolted their doors
today against the 650,000 Jews of Germany
whose eyes are turned on this international
gathering as a last hope of escape from Nazi
Both Nazi and Jew looked at Evian and got
the same message: No one cared.
Now the Nazis had the free world's signature
on a license to do what they wished with an
abandoned people.
Not to act is just as profound as acting.
Forgetting is as decisive as remembering. How
can we learn and how can we teach if we
turn our backs not only on the countless
victims, but on their memory as well?
The silence on this 50th anniversary is mute
testimony to the fact that we have violated an
important injunction that which implores
those that bear witness not to forget.
In November of this year both Christian and
Jew will have the opportunity once again to
participate in an act of remembrance.
What the democracies encouraged at Evian
found its expression on the night of Nov. 9,
1938: Kristallnacht, when Nazi Germany began
the extinction of Jewish life and culture in
Europe by burning synagogues and Jewish
shops throughout the Reich, by beating and
arresting thousands of Jews.
Again, no one spoke out.
All Americans can join in next month to
remember, and to dedicate themselves, 50
years after Kristallnacht, to behave today
toward all peoples as we wish the world had
behaved toward the Jews of Europe 50 years

Arabs Fail To Oust Israel From U.N.
- Israel scored a resounding
diplomatic victory here when
the Arab group of nations
failed for the seventh succes-
sive year to oust the Jewish
state from the U.N. General
An Arab motion to deny
Israel's credentials to the 43rd
General Assembly was blocked
by a vote of 95-41, with seven
detentions. It was one of the
largest margins since the
Arabs first attempted the
maneuver in 1982.
The Arab move was defeated
following a counter-motion by
Norwaty not to consider the
Arab amendment at all.
Israel's permanent repre-
sentative to the United
Nations, Ambassador Johanan
Bein, hailed the outcome as an
indication of Israel's rising
esteem in the world commun-
The vote to block the Arab
challenge was backed by 15
more countries than last year,
when a similar Arab measure
was defeated by a vote of
80-39, with 10 abstentions.
It was a "great victory for
Israel," Bein told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency right
after the vote.
Clearly elated by the out-
come, Bein said it was "a
direct result of Israel's devel-
oping relationship with the
countries of the world."
He attributed the outcome to
the efforts of the staff of
Israel's U.N. Mission, adding,
"It turns out that Israel s
standing in the world, despite
the events in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip, is not only not
diminishing but in fact, when it
comes to meaningful decisions,
Israel's standing is clearly on
the rise."
Bein noted that the increase
of the vote supporting Israel
from 80 to 95 "is not inciden-
tal, and it has a meaningful
implication for Israel's real
status in the world commun-
Immediately after the vote,
Vemon Walters, the American
ambassador, and his deputy,
Herbert Okun, went over to
the Israeli delegation to offer
They shook hands warmly
with Bein and the other
delgates. Diplomatic sources
disclosed that the United
States had lobbied intensively
behind the scenes on behald of
Israel during the weeks before
the vote.
An analysis of the results
showed that only two new
countries, Jordan and Niger,
joined the Arab ranks this
year. Neither had participated
in the vote a year ago.

Eppler Steps Down
To Be Honored At JDC
75th Anniversary
The American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee will
hold a special 75th Anniver-
sary Dinner honoring its out-
going President, Heinz
Eppler, on Tuesday, December
13, 1988 at the Pierre Hotel in
New York.
Mr. Eppler, a community
leader originally from Cleve-
land and who currently resides
in New York and Palm Beach,
is concluding his fourth year as
President of JDC. His years as
President have seen JDC
expand its programs in East-
ern Europe and around the
world and embark on an
entirely new venture in third
world development.
Harriet Zimmerman, Chair
of the JDC Public Information
Committee, who is in charge of
this gala event, announced
that a special program of tri-
bute to all living past Presi-
dents of the JDC will be the
highlight of the Dinner. The
past Presidents of the JDC
include such legendary Jewish
communal leaders as Henry
Taub from New Jersey, Don-
ald Robinson from Pittsburgh,
Jack Weiler from New York,
Edward Ginsberg from Ohio,
and Edward M.M. Warburg
from New York.
The Dinner will also be the
occasion to welcome JDC's
President Designate, Sylvia
Hassenfeld, who will be offi-
cially elected at the Annual
Meeting of the JDC Board of
Directors on December 15,
Invitations to this gala din-
ner, the first in a series of
special events that will be held
to mark the 75th anniversary
of JDC, are being sent to com-
munity leaders throughout the
United States.
Since its establishment in
1914, JDC has functioned as
the overseas arm of the Ameri-
can Jewish community, provid-
ing help to Jews in need in
Israel and around the world.

Big Crash, New Clash Between U.S. Blacks and Jews
month, JTA's New York and
Washington staffs compiled an
extensive round-up of key news
stories that broke during the
Jewish year 5748.
Following is the third and
final part of a condensed ver-
sion of that compendium.
In America, 5748 was a year
of economic uncertainty, politi-
cal scandal and renewed ten-
sion between blacks and Jews.
And as the rift between the
movements of Judaism vari-
ously widened and narrowed,
Conservative Jews struggled
to reach a consensus on such
divisive issues as the status of
women as cantors.
The Jewish year got off to a
rocky start with the stock mar-
ket crash of Oct. 19-. In the
days and weeks after "Black
Monday," when Wall Street
suffered its greatest plunge in
history, leaders of American
Jewish organizations fretted
over how the collapse would
impact their fundraising
efforts and endowment funds.
There was particular con-
cern in New York, where the
stock market is not only an
indicator of the state of the
economy, but the work place of
some of the Jewish commun-
ity's biggest givers. The year
closed, however, with both the
market and Jewish philan-
thropy on relatively stable
Two American corporations
suffered economic setbacks of
their own, when they agreed
to pay fines imposed for
alleged violations of the 10-
year-old Export Administra-
tion Act. The law, enforced by
the U.S. Department of Com-
merce, bars corporations from
complying in any way with the
Arab boycott of Israel.
Largest Fine In History
In March, the Oakland-
based Safeway supermarket
chain paid a $995,000 penalty,
the largest in history, rather
than face more than $4 million
in fines in connection with its
supply of product lists to
supermarkets in Saudi Arabia
and Kuwait.
In August, the Sara Lee
Corporation of Chicago agreed
to pay a $725,000 penalty for
supplying boycott-related
information in an effort to
register its L'eggs trademark
in Kuwait.
There were embarrassments
in the political world, as well.
Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii),
a longtime friend of Israel,
became the center of contro-
versy for introducing a last-
minute appropriations amend-
ment in late December to fun-
nel $8 million to yeshivas in
France. He withdrew the bill
in February, conceding an
error in judgment.
Political scandal mired the
Republicans, too, as allega-
tions surfaced in January that
an aide and close friend of
Attorney General Edwin
Meese had proposed making
payments to Israel's Labor
Party in exchange for prom-
ises that Israel would not des-
troy a planned oil pipeline
from Iraq to Jordan.
Meese, who later resigned,
was cleared of any wrongdo-
ing. The friend, Jewish finan-
cier E. Robert Wallach of San
Francisco, is still facing
charges. The pipeline was
never built.
Meese's Justice Department
was also preoccupied during
the year with trying to shut
down the Palestine Liberation
Organization's observer mis-
sion to the United Nations, as
mandated by the Anti-
Hadassah, Curie Institute Agreement
Jerusalem The Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO)
and the Curie Institute in Paris have signed an historic
agreement to undertake joint research into cancer and
exchange of key personnel. The first step in implementing
the agreement will be an exchange of scientific and medical
staff. A committee of representatives from Curie and HMO
will determine future areas of cooperation.
Terrorism Act of 1987.
The battle, which some Jew-
ish organizations supported
and others sidestepped, was
ultimately lost, after both the
World Court and a U.S. dis-
trict court ruled that closing
the mission would be a viola-
tion of America's obligations
as host country to the United
Tensions Over Koch Remark
Of course, the biggest Amer-
ican political story of the year
was the presidential election
campaign and Kitty
Dukakis' Yiddishkeit was not
the only issue that made Jew-
ish news.
The hotly contested New
York primary campaign deter-
iorated into ethnic mudsling-
ing after Mayor Ed Koch said
Jews "would be crazy" to vote
for Jesse Jackson, the living
symbol of black aspirations.
Black-Jewish relations also
received a tremendous setback
in Chicago, where an aide to
Acting Mayor Eugene Sawyer
made a series of wildly anti-
Semitic charges. The aide.
Steve Cokely, was quoted in
April as saying that Jewish
doctors inject black babies
with the virus that causes
AIDS. What outraged Jews
was the black leaders' reluc-
tance to repudiate Cokely and
the mayor's delay in firing
Then in Los Angeles, a ser-
ies of racist memos calling for
a Jewish-financed campaign to
unseat Mayor Tom Bradley,
who is black, threatened to
shake up one of the strongest
black-Jewish alliances of any
American city. The memos,
written by consultants to
Bradley's Jewish challenger,
City Councilman Zev Yaros-
lavsky, were repudiated by the
candidate himself, who apolo-
In religious life, the three
major institutions of the Con-
servative movement achieved
something of a milestone by
issuing the first common state-
ment of principles in the move-
ment's 143-year history. The
statement outlined Conserva-
tive Judaism's stands on such
issues as belief in God, religi-
ous pluralism and the role of
women in Judaism.
But it became clear that the
document did not end the
ongoing battle between pro-
gressive leaders in the Conser-
vative mainstream and the so-
called traditionalists. In May,
the latter scored a victory,
when the Cantors Assembly,
the world's largest profes-
sional body of chazanim, voted
to reject a proposal to admit
qualified women members.
The Lubavitchers also had
cause for celebration in 5748,
when a federal district court
judge awarded a library of rare
religious texts to the Brook-
lyn-based Hasidic movement.
But the community also suf-
fered a tragic loss, with the
death of the rebbe's wife,
Chaya Moussia Schneerson.
Other celebrated Jews to die
in 5748 included violinist Jas-
cha Heifetz, Nobel laureate Isi-
dor Isaac Rabi, theologian Sey-
mour Siegel, philanthropist
Martin Citrin, journalist David
Schoenbrun and former Con-
gresswoman Gladys Noon
American Jewish Immigrants
Need Attention
The Reagan administration's
top human rights specialist
called on the American Jewish
community to pay more atten-
tion to new immigrants.
Richard Schifter, assistant
secretary of state for human
rights and humanitarian
affairs, said that with Jewish
emigration from the Soviet
Union now averaging 2,000 a
month, the Jewish community
must do more to help new
immigrants adjust to their new
"We must keep in mind that
the immigrants need to be
integrated into the new sur-
roundings, wherever these
may be," Schifter told the
annual meeting here of the
Union of Councils for Soviet
"They need counseling,
retraining, advice and assis-
tance in finding a home, get-
ting such a home and job place-
When Schifter was asked if
the United States could pro-

are still living in absorption
centers in Israel because they
do not have the money for

that he believed Congress

Tourism to Israel declined 13
percent in the first nine
months of 1988, compared to
the same period of the previ-
ous year, the Central Bureau
of Statistics reported.
It has increased slightly in
the past three months, com-
pared to the April-July level,
but is still running 20 percent
below the same three-month
period of 1987.
About 80,000 tourists visited
in September
ing as an individual and not as
a government official, Schifter
said Congress would act
"more generously" if it first
saw a "real effort" by the
Jewish community to provide
funds for this need.
Schifter spoke at a dinner
during which he and Rozanne
Ridgway, U.S. assistant
secretary of state for Euro-
pean and Canadian affairs,
received the UCSJ's Anatoly
Sharansky Freedom Award.
Plea Not To Sign
Vienna Document
A major focus of attention at
the dinner, as well as through-
out the three-day meeting
here, was the concluding docu-
ment now being discussed in
Vienna by the 35 nations par-
ticipating in the ongoing fol-
low-up session of the Confer-
ence on Security and Coopera-
tion in Europe.
The conference is reviewing
implementation of the 1975
Helsinki Final Act. Once the
concluding document is
signed, the NATO and War-
saw Pact countries will begin
discussions on negotiations for
reducing conventional arms in
The UCSJ has urged the
Reagan administration not to
sign the document until the
Soviet Union lives up to its
human rights commitments
and, specifically, makes
changes in its laws easing emi-
gration restrictions.
Soviet Foreign Minister
Eduard Shevardnadze prom-
ised during his visit to Wash-
ington last month that these
changes would be made in Jan-
UCSJ President Pamela
Cohen, in introducing the two
State Department officials,
read a letter to Secretary of
State George Shultz from
prominent Soviet refuseniks,
urging that the document not
be signed.
With the Soviet Union still
violating the Helsinki Accords,
"it is unthinkable that West-
ern democracies are ready to
betray human rights activists
in the USSR and sign yet
another ambiguous docu-
ment," the refuseniks said in
their letter.
Ridgway stressed that "until
there is the right balance
between security and human
rights, we will continue to sit
in Vienna."
She denied that the Reagan
administration wants to con-
clude the document before it
leaves office on Jan. 20. "If we
can get an agreement between
now and the 20th of January,
we will sign on to it" she said.
"And if we can't, we will still

Defining the Truly Needy
nothing is more basic than the
moral obligation tzedakah,
which means both "charity"
and "doing justice."
The Talmud delcares in fact
that alms-giving aiding the
poor and feeding the hungry
is equal to all the command-
ments of the Torah.
The rabbis dramatize the
point by saying, "He who has
no pity upon his fellow crea-
tures is assuredly not of the
seed of Abraham, our father."
In Jewish communities from
biblical times to the present,
there was free and generous
giving of alms to all who were
in need.
There was also much sys-
tematic and careful relief
through established charitable
institutions, such as the tarn-
chui, or the public kitchen, and
the pushka, or alms box.
But the highest degree of
charity, Maimonides reminds
us, is to help a person get work

The term "Kristallnacht" ("Night of Broken Glass") refers to
the organized anti-Jewish riots in Germany and Austria,
November 9-10, 1938. These riots marked a major transition in
Nazi policy, and were, in many ways, a harbinger of the "Final
Nazi anti-Semitic policy
began with the systematic
legal, economic, and social dis-
enfranchisement of the Jews.
This was accomplished in vari-
ous stages (e.g. The Nurem-
berg Laws of 1935, which,
among other things, stripped
German Jews of their citizen-
ship.) One of these steps
involved the deportation of
Polish Jews who were residing
in Germany (est. 56,500). On
the night of October 27, 1938,
18,000 Polish Jews were
deported, but were initially
refused entry into Poland by
the Polish authorities. Caught
in between, the Jews were
forced to camp out in make-
shift shelters. Upon hearing
that his familv was so trapped,

Cities and
17 year-old Herschel Grynzspan, a student in Paris, shot the
third secretary of the German Embassy, Ernst vom Rath, whom
he mistook for the ambassador. This assassination served as a
welcome pretext for the German initiation of Kristallnacht.
Heydrich Orders Policy of Violence
Reinhard Heydrich (the head of the Reich Main Security
Office which oversaw the Gestapo, police and SD operations)
sent a secret telegram at 1:20 a.m., November 10, 1938 to "all
headquarters and stations of the State Police; all districts and
sub-districts of the SD." He gave instructions for the immediate
coordination of police and political activities in inciting the riots
throughout Germany and Austria. ".. .The demonstrations are
not to be prevented by the police," he ordered, rather, the police
are ". only to supervise the observance of the guidelines."
The result of this policy was the first violent pogrom (riot) on
Western European soil in hundreds of years. 36 Jews were
killed (some authorities have this figure as high as 91); 30,000
more were deported to concentration camps; 267 synagogues
were burned and over 7,000 Jewish shops, businesses and homes
were vandalized and ransacked.
Immediately after Kristallnacht, a fine of one billion marks was
levied, not upon the criminals, but upon the victims, the
Jewish community of Germany. Along with the fine came a
decision, taken in a conference of Nazi leaders on November 12,
1938, to "Aryanize the German economy, to get the Jew out.
. .." Nazi policy had now moved into the overt destruction of all
Jewish life in the Third Reich.
Apathy in the Western World
The violence of Kristallnacht aroused the world to condemn
the Nazi actions. President Franklin D. Roosevelt recalled
the American ambassador from Berlin stating that he "could
scarcely believe that such things could occur in a twentieth
century civilization." However, even the condemnations failed to
change western immigration policies. With a few exceptions
(e.g. England, which increased its absorption of refugees after
Kristallnacht), the doors to safety remained barred. As one
leader of German Jewry stated two months after Kristallnacht
(January 25, 1939), "From America, nothing tangible (in
immigration possibilities) has arrived." With violent anti-
Semitism now institutionalized, and with few places to flee, the
Jews of Germany, Austria, and later, occupied Europe, were
trapped and doomed.
Kristallnacht serves as the symbol of that destruction. The
synagogues and Torah scrolls that were burned and dese-
crated, signified, as Rabbi Leo Baeck had earlier realized, that
"the thousand-year history of the Jews in Germany had come to
an end." It is that noble history and glorious legacy of German
Simon Wiesenthal Center
The Simon Wiesenthal Center has opened a European
Bureau in Paris, directed by Dr. Shimon Samuels, whose
background includes international relations, Holocaust
studies, worldwide Jewish affairs and the Middle East.
From its Paris bureau, the Center will focus on its agenda
which includes monitoring and combatting anti-Semitism,
neo-Nazism and other extremist movements. Based in Los
Angeles, the Center also has regional offices in New York,
Chicago, Miami, Toronto and Jerusalem.
Jewry that we remember on
Kristallnacht, a legacy of reli-
gious scholarship, intellectual
creativity and scientific
achievement. Nobel Prize win-
ners and rabbinic scholars,
businessmen and soldiers, gov-
ernment ministers and social
activities all had their worlds
shattered, along with the thou-
sands of windows that gave
Kristallnacht its name.
The Legacy of
There are important lessons
to be drawn from Kristall-
nacht, for it served as a bridge
experience for both Jews and
Nazis. For the Jews, there was
the terrifying realization that
Kolitical anti-Semitism can
ad to violence, even in West-
ern Civilization. It also demon-
strated that apathy can still
[>ervade the world when the
ives of Jews or other minorit-
ies are threatened.
For the Nazis, Kristallnacht taught that while the world might
condemn their pogroms, it would not actively oppose them.
World opinion, however, taught the Nazis the value of secrecy in
the perpetration of future actions against Jews. Added to the
complaints of Germans offended by the random violence of
Kristallnacht, the stage was set for the "Final Solution" the
organized, bureaucratically efficient genocide of 6,000,000 men,
women, and children.
In retrospect, Kristallnacht was more than the shattering of
windows and illusions. It portended the physical destruction of
European Jewry. As such, this commemoration must be
observed both as a memorial and as a warning.

commemoration of the 50th
anniversary of Kristallnacht,
Karl Richter, one of the few
surviving rabbis who served
German congregations at that
time, led a memorial service
for its victims recently in the
Munich Synagogue.
Some 100 New Yorkers
joined Richter for the event,
sponsored by the UJA-
Federation of Jewish Philan-
thropies of New York.
Ernest Michel, executive
vice president of the UJA-
Federation, and a 15-year-old
member of Richter's syna-
gogue during Kristallnacht,
also participated.
Michel's father was arrested
the day after Kristallnacht
and Michel himself is a survi-
vor of Auschwitz.
The retired Richter, 78,
headed a congregation in
Mannheim in November 1938.
During Kristallnacht, his
synagogue was one of over 250
burned or destroyed in Ger-
many and Austria, and most of
his congregation, like some
30,000 Jews that night, was
arrested and sent to concen-
tration camps.
Richter left Germany with
his family in 1939 to head a
congregation in Springfield,
Mo. He gained entry into the
United States with the help of
the then senator from Missi-
ouri, Harry Truman.

people get home.
The numbers still stagger the imagination:
70,000 Jews who survived Hitler, brought to the land of
Israel in the space of just four months.
45,000 Jews from Yemen, almost the entire
Jewish population, airlifted through Opera^
tion Magic Carpet in the 1950's.
120,000 from Iraq. Another
70,000 from Morocco.
Thousands more from Ethiopia,
Romania, the Soviet Union and

David Shaves Goliath?
Can David slay or shave a
modern-day Goliath?
That's the question being
asked by two Israeli inventors
and a kibbutz-owned manufac-
turing facility, as they wage a
legal battle with Victor Kiam,
chairman of the board, presi-
dent, chief operating officer,
chief executive officer and con-
trolling shareholder of
Remington Products Inc.
The warfare concerns an
electro-mechanical device
which removes body hair. The
appliance, with the brand-
name Epilady, was developed
by two Israeli inventors and is
manufactured by Mepro Com-
pany Kibbutz Hagoshrim 1987
Vitd. (Mepro). The kibbutz is
located in the Upper Galilee
and is familiar to many Ameri-
can visitors who have stayed in
its guest house. Patents for
Epilady were granted in 36
countries, including the U.S.A.
Recently, Kiam came out with
a hair removal device which
copies the principles of Epi-
Mepro filed a lawsuit against
Kiam and Remington, claim-
ing a violation of a confidential
agreement, patent infringe-
ment and unfair competition.
The suit is based in part on the
fact that Mepro had entered
into negotiations with Kiam to
explore U.S. marketing possi-
bilities and, in doing so, turned
over to him substantial valua-
ble and confidential material
related to all aspects of manu-
facturing and marketing Epi-
lady. Mepro has already sued
Kiam and Remington in the
United Kingdom and the Brit-
ish Court of Appeals has
granted an injunction restrain-
ing Remington from selling,
marketing or advertising its
device in the U.K.
Epilady was introduced
internationally in 1986 and has
already racked up more than
$600 million in retail sales in
more than sixty countries,
making it one of Israel's most
important exports and hard
currency earners.
