Egypt Recognizes
Palestinian State
Egypt, in a move that offi-
cials claim will threaten its
already sensitive relations
with Israel, announced Sunday
it has granted full recognition
to the Palestinian state
declared last week.
In an official statement that
clarified its previously uncer-
tain position on the independ-
ent Palestinian state, it was
reported that Egypt confirmed
its recognition and "blessed
the state as a constructive step
with hopes that it would serve
the cause of peace and stability
in the region."
Egypt had previously
declared support for the pro-
clamation when it was issued
in Algiers November 15. But
apparently leery of endanger-
ing relations with any party to
the conflict and jeopardizing
its position as a peacemaker in
the region, Egypt declined
immediate recognition of the
state.
Jordan's King Hussein, who
recently severed all economic
support for Palestinians living
in the West Bank, issued a
similar statement following
Egypt's announcement last
week that suggested Israel
and the United States are now
the main barriers to peace in
the Middle East. "I believe
that if there is any intransi-
gence and there is indeed
it is in the Israeli position,
which hasn't changed and up
to now the United States' posi-
tion," he said on CBS televi-
sion's Face the Nation.
Hussein said in recent
reports that the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization has now
met American criteria for a
Mazer Sets Plans
For 1989 Campaign
Irving Mazer, Jewish Federa-
tion/UJA Campaign Chair
The goal for the 1989 Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County/UJA Campaign is $10
million, nearly $1 million more
than last year, according to
Irving Mazer, Campaign
Chair.
"During the 1989 Campaign
we hope to emphasize the local
needs of this community with
the hope that we will at least
meet some of the existing
unmet needs here," he said in
a recent interview.
Mazer also discussed the
Campaign's role in relation to
Israel. "This is a year when
Israel is in as precarious a
position as it's ever been, hav-
ing lost the sympathy of a
growing group of Americans
who seem to forget that Israel
place in Arab Israeli peace
talks and insists that the PLO
take part in any Middle East
settlement.
The Palestine National
Council, the PLO's parliament
in exile, recently
endorsed U.N. Security Coun-
cil resolutions 242 and 238,
implying recognition of
Israel's right to exist. It also
supports the Cairo Declara-
tion, which demands an end to
more than two decades of
worldwide Israeli-PLO under-
ground warfare and restricts
guerrilla operations to military
targets in Israel and occupied

Changing faces and creating
new images has been the
theme permeating the
Women's Division this year,
both in programming and cam-
paign planning. Several annual
events have adopted a new
look and outreach into the
community has touched an
even greater number of
women who want to become
involved in the Jewish Federa-
tion.
"Throughout the year
Women's Division will be hold-
ing more innovative programs
and reaching out to women in
all the affiliate areas of the
Jewish Community," said
Sheila Engelstein, 1989
Women's Division Campaign
Chair. "We've made a few face
changes and we expect our
1989 campaign to again reflect
the continued quality of our
events and the highly commit-
ted women who invest their
time in our campaign efforts."
Heading the campaign sea-
son this year will be the $365
to $1199 Genesis Category
Event. "Genesis means in the
beginning and that was the
concept we wanted to por-
annual mission was to provide
an opportunity for the group
to see exactly where their con-
tributions go and the impact
they make on the lives of the
Israelis, to enhance their Jew-
ish identity and to develop
personal and professional rela-
tionships.
Members of the mission
were selected based on their
Jewish commitment, their pot-
ential leadership abilities and
their stature in the business
and professional community.
Hopefully, as a result of their
trip to Israel, these men will
assume leadership roles in the
Jewish community as well as in
the Federation.
Leonard Hanser, a local
attorney who participated on
the mission, had never visited
Israel. "I really had no expec-

Memorial Fund For Human
Resource Development
Last year, the Jewish Feder-
ation, through the resources of
the Meyer B. Siskin Memorial
Fund, sponsored an educa-
tional series offered by the
National Jewish Center for
Learning and Leadership
(CLAL) in which nationally
prominent educators con-
ducted a series of lectures and
discussions in the community.
It was to be the first of many
such educational programs for
the development of human
resources in the Palm Beach
County Jewish community.
The Meyer B. Siskin Fund
was established in 1987, in
memory of Jeanne Levy's
father, to fund Jewish Federa-
tion Human Resource Devel-
opment programs for the
education and development of
community leadership. Jeanne
Levy has been a prominent
and active member in this
community and the Jewish
Federation.
In order to continue provid-
ing quality educational pro-
grams under the auspices of
the Human Resource Develop-
ment Committee, the Meyer B.
Siskin Fund must be expanded

tions.
If you are interested in sup-
porting these valuable educa-
tional programs which provide

'From Darkness To Light9
Community Rally For Soviet Jewry

will be the theme of a commun-
ity rally on behalf of Soviet
Jewry, sponsored by the
Soviet Jewry Task Force of
AVL
Beth El.
Benjamin Charny, a former
refusenik will be the featured
speaker at this year's rally.
Charny and his wife, Yadviga,
received permission last July
to emigrate to the United
States, after nine years of
pleading with the Soviet Gov-
ernment. His case received
world-wide attention and Jew-
ish Community groups, sena-
tors and congressmen helped
maintain a high profile for the
Charny's case. Armand Ham-
mer, the 90-year-old industri-
alist, was also instrumental in
urging Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev to allow the

encompasses the hope that
someday all Soviet Jews will
be able to emigrate and be
free. That hope and its cause is
the inspiration for refuseniks
who still await their freedom.
They depend on the American
Jewish community for its
strong support, reflected
through local efforts like the

Moderated by Arnold J.
Hoffman, of Cadwalader,
Wickersham & Taft, the
seminar will provide non-
technical, idea-oriented infor-
mation on how charitable/phil-
anthropic giving can provide a
method for taking advantage
of all possible tax benefits dur-
ing year-end planning.
Three community profes-
sionals will share their insights
and expertise on current tax
saving opportunities with indi-
viduals and professionals dur-
ing the two-hour seminar.

Viewpoint
Questionable Declaration
Caution ...
And careful scrutiny are required in the
aftermath of the declaration from Algiers.
In language far more moderate than its
international posture and modus operandi, the
Palestine National Council issued its declara-
tion of statehood couched in terms of social
justice, equality and human dignity.
Caution ... It has been reiterated time and
again from major PNC players that the first
step of a piece of a Palestinian state would be
but a pothole on the road to 'liberating' all of
Palestine.
The anachronistic UN resolution the
Partition Plan upon which the PNC belat-
edly based its call for statehood is 40 years old
and was rejected by Palestinians at the time.
That the UN and colleagues of world peace
now recognize, not UN Resolution 181, but
UN resolutions 242 and 338, would seem to
suggest that the Palestinians are resurrecting
an invalid thesis.
Caution .. The PNC and PLO participants
to this declaration have stated that a "phased"
program of repatriation is the intent of the
moves made in Algiers. Such a state, as has
been stressed in the recent past, would be only
an interim resolution from the PNC perspec-
tive.
The Israeli government's position is that the
tactical ploy which passes for a declaration of
statehood is but political fiction which calls for
careful reading and scrutiny and .
Caution.
Caution and Disunity
With words of caution to Diaspora Jewry,
Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir announced his
intention to shuttle 'Who is a Jew' legislation
into law.
It is a stiff political price to pay for the
assurance of forming a coalition government
as requested by President Chaim Herzog.
While the religious parties in general, and
the ultra-orthodox voters in particular, have
every right to assert their specific agenda
demands of their own government, it should
be noted that expediency alone has forged this
mixed marriage.
In prior months and years, the prime minis-
ter assuaged those who would disenfranchise
the Conservative and Reform rabbinate and
those converted by other than the Orthodox.
Now, apparently, he has capitulated.
Once the Law of Return is amended to
reflect the new international definition of just
who is a Jew, there will be a stressful period of
adjustment with, most especially, American
Jews.
It will take as much finesse, ana maybe
more, to palliate the intrafaith damage that
will be done in the name of the new Israel
government.
POST ELECTION CHALLENGE
APMOyVMB WPWCT
Arab Success at Israel Polls
By MARC H. TANENBAUM
Israel's elections two weeks
ago burst with paradoxes and
challenges.
The week before the elec-
tion, pollsters and pundits
portrayed the race between
Labor and Likud as "a dead
heat."
Then radical Palestinian and
Arab terrorist groups carried
out a series of violent attacks,
brutally killing Israeli civilians
as well as Israeli soldiers.
The psychological effect of
that calculated violence was to
turn marginal Israeli voters
who supported Labor's peace
and security policies into sup-
porters of Likud and other
nationalist parties, whose pri-
orities are security first, then
peace.
Clearly, these radical Arabs
sought to derail any prospects
for peace negotiations by
undermining Shimon Peres'
peace initiatives, thereby
expecting a collision course
with Likud.
Now, thanks in part to these
Arab interventions, Israel will
be apparently forming a hard-
line, right-wing, religious-
nationalist government.
It may well be that a strong,
stable government under Yitz-
hak Shamir could well have the
power to negotiate some form
of peace with Palestinians,
much as anti-Communist Pres-
ident Richard Nixon opened
negotiations with Red China.
But the over-arching parallel
challenge for Israel and world
Jewry will be the predomin-
ance of ultra-Orthodox parties
in the new government.
If wisdom does not prevail,
theocratic policies could seri-
ously alienate American and
world Jewry, and that, too,
could weaken Israel's capacity
to make peace with the Arabs.

National Socialist crimes

Federal Republic President
Richard von Weizsacker
declared. Addressing the 37th
Historians Conference in Bam-

sized that the Germans must

The federal president's
remarks placed nim on one
side of an ongoing dispute
among West German histori-
ans over whether there are
parallels to the Nazi Holo-
caust. "Auschwitz remains

isted. "It was carried out in

Letter To The Editor
DEAR EDITOR:
I just glanced through the
Jewish Community Center's
Senior Program "Update."
Since I have been a Floridian
since 1945 in Palm Beach
County, and can appreciate
the Jewish Community Cen-
ter's services available for all
age groups. Now that I am a
Senior Citizen and live in Cen-
tury Village, I say thank God
for such an organization as the
Jewish Community Center,
which is able to supply badly
needed services for so many
over the years. I know it takes
lots of effort and many volun-
teers. I'll conclude by saying:
Thank "you all" for making
the effort to do so much for so
many.
NORMA GUTHMAN
Richard von Weizsacker
incontrovertible and will not
be forgotten, and nothing his-
torians may bring to light will
lessen the crimes of National
Socialism. There will be differ-
ences among historians in
their research, von Weizsacker
observed, "but no one who is
serious proposes debate on a
moral relativizating."
Nor is historical responsibil-
ity altered with time, the presi-
dent continued; rather, what
happened at Auschwitz has
taken on added weight in peo-
ple's awareness since the end
of the war. At the same time,
he pointed out, a democracy
has arisen in the Federal
Republic which has stood the
test of time not least because
of its openness toward history.
This circumstance, von Weiz-
sacker maintained, justifies
self-awareness and has a liber-
ating effect.
Religion and Politics
JERUSALEM (JTA) Premier Yitzhak Shamir owes
his mandate to form the next government to the Torah
sages of the two largest ultra-Orthodox parties and to the
Lubavitcher rebbe, 6,000 miles away in Brooklyn.
The Shas party's Council of Torah Sages, Moetset
Hahmei HaTorah in Bnei Brak, and the Agudat Yisrael's
corresponding panel. Moetset Gedolei HaTorah, instructed
their parties' Knesset factions to advise President Chaim
Herzog they favored a government headed by Shamir.
The president is required by law to assign the task of
forming a government to the political leader most likely to
accomplish it. Shas and the Agudas represent 11 Knesset
seats between them.
Shamir has a good chance of winning the National
Religious Party's five seats, in which case Degel HaTorah,
the newest Orthodox party, with two seats, is likely to
climb aboard. It declined to make any recommendation to
the president itself.

New Trade Era Begins
With Palestinian Exports
By YOSSI LEMPKOWICZ
BRUSSELS (JTA) A new trade era will begin at the
end of this month when the first direct export of Palestin-
ian agricultural produce from the West Bank and Gaza
Strip reach the European market, European Community
sources said here.
The initial consignment of 6,000 tons, mainly grapefruit
grown in Gaza, will go to importers in West Germany,
Britain, Holland and Denmark.
A total of 16,000 tons of fruits and vegetables from the
Israeli-administered territories is expected under a con-
tract between Israel, the Palestinian exporters and the
European community.
Until now, exports from the territories had to be
marketed through Agrexco, the official Israel government
export agency. Israel was reluctant to allow Palestinians to
export their goods independently.
But Israel, bowing to pressure from the E.C. Executive
Commission and the Parliament of Europe, agreed to allow
direct Palestinian exports.
Aliyah Same As 1987 Level
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) A total of 9,220 immigrants
arrived in Israel during the first nine months of 1988, about
the same in the corresponding period of 1987, the Central
Bureau of Statistics reported.
Emigrants from the Soviet Union numbered 1,570, a
slight increase over the previous year. But a 43 percent rise
was reported in emigration from Argentina.
Polio Outbreak Ends In Israel
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The polio outbreak in Israel has been
officially declared over.
Health Minister Shoshana Arbeli-Almoslino reported
that no new cases have been diagnosed in the last five
weeks.
Fifteen cases in all were reported between August and
October, leading to a mass inoculation drive.
A total of 3.2 million people under age 40 were given the
polio vaccine, the health minister said. She said they
included ultra-Orthodox Jews and others who at first
refused to be inoculated.
Meanwhile, Health Ministry officials here said rumors of
a meningitis outbreak were false.
B'nai B'rith Honors Shultz
WASHINGTON (JTA) Secretary of State George
Shultz accepted the Philip Klutznik Distinguished Service
Award from B'nai B'rith International and said he appre-
ciates the support he receives from such private groups.
Seymour Reich, international president of B'nai B'rith,
said the award "symbolizes for us all you have done as
secretary of state on behalf of human rights everywhere,
on behalf of seeking peace, not only in the Middle East but
throughout the world."
War Criminals Witnesses
The Office of Special Investigations (OSI) is attempting
to locate survivors with knowledge of Nazi crimes in
Tryskiai, Lithuania during World War II, particularly the
murder of some 80 Jewish males in Tryskiai at the end of
July, 1941, the deportation of Tryskiai's Jewish women and
children to Zagare on the Latvian border, the murders of
six Jewish women in September, 1942, and the murders of
the wife and brother-in-law of an anti-Nazi partisan in the
summer of 1944.
Information should be sent to Michael MacQueen, OSI,
Criminal Division, 11th Floor, Bond Building, 1400 New
York Ave. N.W. Washington, D.C. 20530.
Neo-Nazis Recruiting Swiss
GENEVA (JTA) A group of German neo-Nazis is
trying to recruit like-minded persons in Switzerland.
According to a Swiss radio report, their initial target is
Germans living in Switzerland. Letters have been sent to
hundreds, asking them to join the movement.
So far, the only serious Swiss neo-Nazi organization is
based in Lausanne.

Kahane Forswears
End of Kach Party
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Rabbi Meir Kahane said in
Miami last week that the end
of the "Kach" party "is not
the end of Kach."
The American-born rabbi,
who made aliyah to Israel
from Brooklyn in 1971 and was
elected to the Knesset, saw his
party banned from this year's
election because of its views
that all Arabs should be trans-
ferred from Israel to Southern
Lebanon and Jordan.
"The official reason why I
was banned was because they
ruled the party was racist, '
Kahane said, in a private inter-
view with The Jewish Florid-
ian. "The real reason was
because all the polls showed us
getting 10 to 12 seats. That is
what terrified the parties and
that's why they did a step
which is more consistent with
a fascist state than a Demo-
cratic state.
"They simply banned the
party. This bill in America
Meir Kahane
would have been thrown out in
two minutes.
He announced that Kach
(which means "Thus") would
be changed to the Koach
("strength") party.
"Since Kach is the only
party (pledged to support its
Arab-oriented goals), we will
make the cosmetic and I
stress cosmetic change,
because we will not make a
single substantive change in
our program," he declared.
"Thecosmetic change will be
only the name of the party
because the ban was against
the party, not against people
"We now start fresh," he
said, explaining his new strat-
egy: "all our literature will
deal only with verses from the
Torah and the Talmud. This
time if they want to ban us,
they will bring the flyers which
are only quotations from
Torah. And, if they ban us they
will have to explain these
quotes are 'racist' quotes."
Kahane vowed to continue
holding rallies, repeating the
same speeches, holding the
same house-gatherings and
distributing booklets and liter-
ature "in order to capture the
mind of the Jews of Israel and
give them what I call the
authentic Jewish idea."

New Faces In Israel's
12th Knesset
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) If
there is one thing that the 15
Israeli political parties
recently elected to the Knesset
have in common, it is that
nearly all of them are sending
new faces to sit in the 120-
member legislative body.
Mostly young, predomi-
nantly Sephardic and new to
politics are the words that
describe most of the 18 mem-
bers of the ultra-Orthodox par-
ties who were elected to the
12th Knesset.
The far right-wing Tsomet
and Moledet parties and the
leftist Mapam also will be
sending new faces to the Knes-
set, though their accent on
youth is not so pronounced.
The ultra-Orthodox made a
strong showing on Election
Day, with candidates chosen
for their religious back-
grounds, rather than political
experience.
Four of the six men the Shas
party will send to the Knesset
are newcomers. After incum-
bents Yitzhak Peretz and
Rafael Pinhassi, No. 3 on its
list is Rabbi Yosef Azran, 47,
who has been Sephardic chief
rabbi of Rishon le-Zion for the
last 12 years. He also heads a
rabbincal court in Paris and an
educational institution in
Strasbourg, France.
Azran is a graduate of a
yeshiva in Tangier, Morocco.
He also studied in London and
at the Ponevetz yeshiva in
Bnei Brak, headed by the ven-
erable Rabbi Eliezer Schach.
Fourth on the Shas list and
its only member of Yemenite
ancestry is Israeli-born Rabbi
Arieh Gamliel, 37. He heads a
yeshiva in the Negev develop-
ment town of Sderot and was
said to have been reluctant to
enter the Knesset race. He
reportedly was persuaded by
Schach and former hardic
Chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the
spiritual mentor of Shas.
Torah Scholars,
Not Politicians
Shas' No. 5 man is Yair Levi,
36, who was active behind the
scenes until now as the party's
director general and an admin-
istrator of Sephardic institu-
tions.
Rabbi Shlomo Dayan, sixth
on the Shas list, is Moroccan-
born and represents the party
on the Jerusalem City Council.
He is founder of the Sephardic
Metivta school in Jerusalem.
The Agudat Yisrael party,
which won five Knesset seats,
is now headed by Rabbi Moshe
Zeev Feldman, 58, an
Austrian-born member of the
Gur Hasidic movement and
director of the Imrei Emet
yeshiva in Beni Brak. He will
take the Agudah seat held by
Avraham Shapira in the outgo-
ing Knesset.
Feldman is described as a
"Torah scholar but not a politi-
cian." He is known to be
extremely hostile to Schach,
who broke with the Agudah to
form the new Degel HaTorah
party.
Degel's No. 1 man is Rabbi
Avraham Ravitz, 54, a father
of 12. He heads the Or
Sameach yeshiva in Jerusa-
lem, a school for people newly
turned to religion. He reput-
edly influenced a popular
Israeli actor, Uri Zohar, to
embrace the faith. The other
Degel seat is going to Rafael
Moshe Gafni, another new-
comer.
Three of the Knesset seats
won by the National Religious
Party will be going to men who
did not serve in the 11th Knes-
set. They are Hanan Porat,
Yigal Bibi and Yitzhak Levi.
The Secular Newcomers
The Knesset members of the
secular right, as distinguished
from the religious right, have
military or scientific back-
grounds.
The expansionist Tsomet
party, which won two seats, is
headed by reserve Gen. Rafael
Eitan, a former Israel Defense
Force chief of staff who sat in
the 11th Knesset as part of the
Tehiya.
He chose as his second in
command Yoash Zidon, 62, a
former air force officer. Zidon
is a graduate of Israel's first
flying course and was a wing
commander during the Sinai
campaign in 1956.
Professor Yair Sprinzak, 66,
a chemist at Tel Aviv Univer-
sity and at the Weizman Insti-
tute of Science, is No. 2 man of
Gen. Rehavam Zeevi's new
Moledet party, which won two
Knesset seats.
Moledet's campaign called
for the "transfer" meaning
expulsion of Arabs from the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Sprinzak, whose father,
Yosef, was speaker of the first
Knesset and a prominent
member of Mapai, forerunner
of the Labor Party, insists
Moledet's philosophy is not so
distant from the party of
David Ben-Gurion.
"Many members of Mapai
believed in transfer," accord-
ing to Sprinzak.
Two of the three Knesset
seats won by Mapam, the left-
ist United Workers Party of
Israel, will be occupied by new-
comers.
They are Chaim Oron, 48,
secretary of the National Kib-
butz Movement for the past
eight years, and Fares Has-
sein, 52, the only newly elected
Arab member of the Knesset.
Oron, a member of Kibbutz
Lahav, is a leader of Peace
Now. Hassein is editor of New
Outlook magazine and chair-
man of the Committee Against
Racism and for Coexistence,
based in Western Galilee. He is
headmaster of a school in
Acre.
One of the two Knesset seats
won by the Center-Shinui
Movement will be occupied by
a newcomer. He is Avraham
Fosmintir.
There are several newcom-
ers in the Knesset delegations
of the two largest parties,
Likud and Labor.

From Literature To Cheerleading
Learning Fair Successful At JCDS
Every aspect of teaching
and learning at the Jewish
Community Day School was
demonstrated last Thursday
evening at the school's first
annual Learning Fair. From
audio cassettes on Jewish
immigration to dioramas
depicting great works of litera-
ture to cheerleading demon-
strations, parents and children
were treated to a complete
array of school activities.
Children in grades 5-8,
under the direction of music
teacher Karen Blum, per-
formed a medley of songs and
Uncle Sam paid a visit to the
Learning Fair.
An estimated 250 guests
also viewed a science exhibit
on color interactions, wrote
stories on a computer, learned
about Alaska and Hawaii and
the War of 1812, and viewed
an exhibit on Jewish contribu-
tions to the world.
Cheerleaders raise school spirit.
David Arenstein, Nathan Burgess and Hilary Arenstein intri-
gued by the science exhibit.
Second Graders Honored
At JCDS Ceremony
Second grade students at the
Jewish Community Day School
recently celebrated a miles-
tone in their Jewish learning
when they received their first
Torah study books at a Hagi-
gat Ha Torah Ceremony
before family, friends and the
students of grades K-3.
Under the direction of their
Jewish studies teachers, Sho-
shana Sharf and Yael Zion, the
34 children presented the
story of creation in Hebrew
and with pictures. This was
followed by singing and danc-
ing with an accompaniment by
Cantor David Feuer of Temple
Emanu-El.
Six area Rabbis, Alan Cohen
of Temple Beth El, Randall
Konigsburg of Temple Beth
David, Steven Westman of
Temple Beth Torah, Leonid
Feldman of Temple Emanu-El,
Murray Ezring of B'nai Torah
Congregation, and Joel Levine
of Temple Judea, along with
Cantor Feuer, blessed and con-
gratulated the children under
a double tallit.
The second graders danced and sang in celebration.
Executive director. Dr. Nissim Elbaz, and Shoshana Sharf con-
gratulate Jessica Nabel and Anais Adair.
(L-R), Rabbis Westman and Ezring and Cantor Feuer took part
in the ceremonies.
Community Rally
Continued from Page 3
Charnys to leave.
Doug Mishkin, a U.S. attor-
ney and well-known Soviet
Jewry Activist will lead songs
to inspire the group and set
the tone of the rally.
The goals of this year's pro-
gram are different than in past
years. This year, the task force
hopes to attract young people
and families by providing an
informal dinner before the
rally.
There will also be singing
before the program and a spe-
cial "Light of Freedom" cere-
mony in which Midrasha stu-
dents will participate. This cer-
emony will open the program
to symbolize the struggle for
Soviet Refuseniks and to light
the path of freedom.
As a way of reaching out to
the entire community, the task
force has organized this event
in conjunction with the follow-
ing organizations: B'nai B'rith
Women, National Council for
Jewish Women, Hadassah, Ed-
ucator's Council for Jewish
Women, Hadassah, Educa-
tor's Council of Palm Beach
County, Palm Beach Board of
Rabbis and Women's Ameri-
can ORT.
These groups have donated
their time and effort to the
rally and have collected vari-
ous consumer goods to be
hand-delivered to refuseniks,
including medical supplies,
makeup, cigarettes, classical
books and cassette tapes. The
refuseniks will probably sell
these goods for money to live
on.
Sandra Goldberg, Chairman
of the Soviet Jewry Task
Force, feels this year's rally is
as important as ever, despite
Gorbachev's new policy of
openness, glasnost, in the
Soviet Union. She stated
"The plight of Soviet Refuse-
niks is still very serious. The
reality is that there are still
major obstacles to increasing
the number of Jews let out of
the Soviet Union. We must
make sure these current gains
will not close off future possi-
bilities."

tact Mark Mendel, Director,

name it accordingly."
New goals and aspirations
are important for each giver at
every level. To continue to
inspire women in the Lion of
Judah category, the Lion/Ruby
Event will be extended this
year to even higher giving
levels. A sapphire-inset Lion of
Judah pin was established for a
minimum personal gift of
$18,000 and an emerald-inset
pin was developed for a mini-
mum personal $25,000 gift.
As always, the Pacesetter
($1200 to $4999) Category
event will continue to enhance
the image of the Women's
Division Campaign through its
exciting programs, bringing
the Women's Division Cam-
paign even closer to its final
goal of the season.
"In order to reach another
all time high this year in our
fundraising, we hope to ad-
vance the pace of the Women's
Division campaign by begin-
ning and ending our events
earlier in the season," Mrs.
Engelstein explained. "We've
had tremendous cooperation in
organizing our campaign this
season and it is with a great
deal of pride that I look for-
ward to working with all the
women in the community to
once again make our Women's
Division one of the most sue-
cesssful campaigns in the
country."
Sheila Engelstein served as
Women's Division President in
1984-86 and was an Associate
General Campaign chairman
of the 1987 Federation/l'JA
Campaign. She also co-chaired
the Lion of Judah event in
1987. A member of the Execu-
tive Committee of the Jewish
Federation, Mrs. Engelstein
will be serving her second
term as Women's Division
Campaign Chair. This year
Mrs. Engelstein is a member
of the Women's Board of the
Morse Geriatric Center and a
founding committee member
of the Alzheimer's Caregiver
Service. She is also a founding
member of the Bat Gurion
Chapter of Hadassah.
Carol Greenbaum, also serv-
ing her second term as
Women's Division President,
commented, "Sheila's experi-
ence in a variety of capacities
over the years combined with
her last term as WD Campaign
Chair gives me great confi-
dence in her dedication and
ability to lead the Women s
Division to even greater
heights this year. She contin-
ues to be a devoted worker, a
superb organizer and an exem-
plary role model to JejJI8h
women everywhere," Mrs.
Greenbaum continued. "Not
only is she herself an inspira-
tion, but she is able to inspire
others to do their utmost for
the Jewish community, both as
volunteers and contributors.

Jewish Play With Zionist
Theme Performed At
Moscow Theater
By DAVID KANTOR
MOSCOW (JTA) Most of
the audience was Jewish. Most
of the performers were Rus-
sian. And while the dialogue
was in Russian, it was liberally
sprinkled with Yiddish
phrases, and nearly all the
songs were sung in Hebrew.
The place was Moscow's
Hermitage Theater. The play,
staged there two weeks ago,
was "Benjamin Ill's Trip to
the Holy Land," based on a
humorous tale by Mendele
Mocher Sforim, the famed
Jewish storyteller of 19th and
early 20th century Russia.
According to Mikhail Lev-
itin, chief director of the Her-
mitage Theater, and others,
the performance was a break-
through. It was the first time a
Soviet theater was allowed to
stage a play that symbolizes
Jewish aspirations to go to
Israel.
The theater was not under
pressure by the authorities to
renounce the play, though it
contains a very strong Jewish
national element, Levitin told
the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency.
The critics, in fact, hailed the
performance as superb, and
praised the actors and director
alike for their excellent work.
"Today, in the age of pere-
stroika (restructuring) and
glasnost (openness), you can-
not deal with Soviet culture
but disregard Jewish culture,"
Levitin said.
"And Jewish culture inevita-
bly implies dealing with the
land of Israel and the people of
Israel," he added.
Hebrew Words And Songs
Some of the Hebrew songs
contained unabashed calls to
go to Israel. The enthusiastic
audience of several hundred
was brought to tears when
Russian actors uttered such
Hebrew words as "Eretz Yis-
rael," "Har Zion." "Kever
Rachel Imenu," "Ribono Shel
Olam" and many more.
When the audience
demanded an encore, the cast
burst into a rousing "Heveinu
Shalom Aleichem," joined by
virtually everybody in the
house.
Evgeny Gerchakov, the Rus-
sian-Jewish actor who played
the tital role of Benjamin, told
the visiting Americans: "You
don't believe it? Well it is true.
This is perestroika. Each peo-
ple has a homeland, and this
piece tells us something about
the homeland of the Jewish
people."
For the first time in the
history of the Hermitage, the
theater program was printed
in both Russian and Hebrew.
Most of the audience, obvi-
ously Jewish, had heard about
it, either in the synagogue, by
word of mouth or by accident.
Members of a group of
United Jewish Appeal activists
from Boston who happened to
be in Moscow heard of the play
from Jewish activists.
But Levitin and director Ser-
gei Korovin said they planned
to show the play to the general
public.
"We believe its message is
important for non-Jews too,"
they said.
A guest of honor at the
Hermitage performance was
Meron Gordon, head of an
Israeli consular delegation
that came to Moscow this sum-
mer, the first Israeli diplo-
matic mission at any level to
visit the Soviet Union in 21
years.
Said Gordon: "Lately we
have known so many 'firsts' in
Soviet-Israeli relations. This
has been another first, and
certainly a very special one."
The Yiddish film "Mamele," with Molly Picon, above, is one of
five released this month on videocassette by Ergo Media. Another
Picon film, "Yidl Mitn Fidl," is also being released with the two
timed to celebrate the 90th birthday of the queen of Yiddish
cinema. A total of ten Yiddish classics are on Ergo's new list,
including "The Bent Tree," an animated fable; "Overture to
Glory," featuring Moishe Oysher; and "Yiddish: The Mame-
Loshn."
Joseph Papp
To Inaugurate
Yiddish Theater
By AMY J. MEHLER
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Joseph Papp, founder of the
Public Theater and the New
York Shakespeare Festival,
has found a way to blend his
passion for the theater with his
love for the Yiddish langugae.
This year's opening season
of the Joseph Papp Yiddish

The American Dream From Kahane
An East European Perspective
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
IT was an early morning in
1911 in a Polish shtetl when
the wagon came to take Anna
and her three children to an
old ship in which 1,000 immi-
grants would make the trans-
atlantic crossing to the gol-
deneh medina America.
But even worse than the
seasickness, crowding and
hunger, was the distress of
parting with family members,
Knowing that they would never
be reunited.
The story is fictional, but
Harold "Hal" Gershowitz, a
Chicago corporate senior exec-
utive, says his first novel,
"Remember This Dream,"
(Bantam publishers, Nov.
1988), is based on research,
especially of the circumstances
his maternal grandparents
faced when they came to
America.
Anna is actually the name of
Gershowitz's grandmother,
who in fact came via wagon
and ship to this new land to
rejoin her husband who had
previously settled in Balti-
more.
Anna's aging father-in-law
has a discussion with his wife
the night before the wagon is
to come:
"Who will remember us,
Necha," he lamented to his
wife. "There will be no one left
here to say kaddish for us, to
remove the weeds from our
graves. If we have no one to
remember us, what do we
have?"
His wife assures him: "They
will remember us. In Amer-
ica."
As the wagon pulls away, he
follows it down the road touch-
ing each family member in
turn.
"Remember me Anna," he
says to his daughter-in-law.
'Remember me, Rachel,
Sheara, Rebecca. Remember
me!* "
WHILE the father-in-law
was lamenting in Poland,
"who will remember us," the
newly arrived immigrants
remembered the loved ones
they left behind.
In a letter to her sister,
whose family stubbornly
refused to come to America,
Anna wrote a plea for them to
reconsider:
"While life is not easy in
America, and we have to work
very hard, it is better here,"
Anna writes. "It took me
sometime to realize why. It is
because there is no fear here.
You never know how much
fear there is in your life until
you wake up one morning and
find it gone. So please, please,
do not give up on the dream of
coming to America. Remem-
ber this dream!"
Gershowitz said it has been
difficult for him to forget his
past and the ten years he took
writing this book brought him
closer to the knowledge that
he fears has been lost among
today's more affluent Ameri-
can-born generations.
Gershowitz, 60, says he tries
to focus on the immigration
experience as it really was. "I
feel that much of our recollec-
tions of this period are almost
mythical, and really tends to
trivialize an incredibly import-
Hal Gershowitz
ant era as a people in our
nation.
"I feel that we tend to mis-
understand this era as one in
which poor and disadvantaged
people came to America and
made a new and better life for
themselves," he says. "The
fact of the matter is, in the
vast majority of cases, the
immigrants came here and
found life extremely hard and
difficult ...
"The point I'm stressing
more than anything else," Ger-
showitz said, "is that I want
this book to enhance our gen-
eration and our children's gen-
eration's appreciation for two
things: one is the courage of
those people who came; and
two, the magnitude of the gift
they secured for us with that
courage."
HIS book begins with the
departure in 1911 and ends in
1941. According to Gershow-
itz, the immigration great
wave meant an end "to people
who were condemned to live as
their forefathers had lived."
There was no such thing as
upward mobility, a concept he
says is uniquely American.
"So what they secured with
their collective dash for free-
dom was to place their children
and grandchildren on a course
where the only limitation their
offspring would have would,
for the most part, be deter-
mined by their capability. And
that was an opportunity
unheard of from wnere these
people came from ...
'There was no such
concept of upward
mobility which is
uniquely American!
"Anyone who feels what we
as Jews have suffered because
we lost touch with what we left
behind," he adds, "doesn't
fully understand how negative
an influence those years of
economic and political and
social oppression really were."
Gershowitz will arrive in Miami,
Dec. 1 for a SO-minute live talk show,
"Something on 17," WLRN television
station. Rights to his book, which has
already gone into second printing,
have been sold to the United Kingdom.
No Decision Made On
Arafat Visa To U.S.
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The State Department contin-
ued to maintain that it had not
made any decision whether to
allow Yasir Arafat, head of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion, to enter the United
States in order to address the
UN General Assembly in New
York.
"We will severely scrutinize
any application for a visa in
light of applicable law and
other regulations and other
pertinent circumstances," said
Charles Redman, the depart-
ment spokesman.
In Jerusalem, Israeli Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir told
the Ambassador Thomas Pic-
kering that admitting Arafat
would encourage his terrorist
organization and damage hope
for the Middle East peace,
according to a statement
released by Shamir's office.
In New York meanwhile, the
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations said that it has
"not at this moment taken a
position on the visa."
A spokesman for the confer-
ence, a coalition of 48 national
Jewish organizations, told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that they will be "in consulta-
tion with the United Nations,
the State Department and
other officials" while they pon-
der their own decision on the
matter.
The conference, however,
has already urged the United
Nations not to invite Arafat to
address the General Assembly,
as the PLO chief has
requested.
"This request must be den-
ied," conference Chairman
Morris Abram declared in a
statement.
He pointed out that Arafat is
not a head of state but leads an
organization which the United
States has formally declared to
be terrorist.
Redman said that the United
Nations has asked the United
States "to facilitate the issu-
ance of a visa to Arafat."
But he stressed that the
State Department does not
have as yet an application for a
visa.
This appears to contradict a
statement by the United
Nations that it presented a
visa application for Arafat and
his party of advisors and body-
guards to Herbert Okun, the
deputy U.S. representative to
the United Nations.
Secretary of State George
Shultz, in a letter last week to
51 senators who wrote him
urging that Arafat be denied a
visa, also did not reveal what
the State Department would
do.
Redman said he would not
describe either the "applicable
law and other regulations" or
the "pertinent circumstances"
that would affect the decision
on a visa request by Arafat.
Under the 1947 U.N. Head-
quarters Agreement, the
United States must admit any-
one coming to the United
Nations on official business.

Political Relevance
Just as Kahane was based
for being a "racist" he, in turn,
assaults politics as having "no
relevance to the truth."
"I'm not a politician," he
said. "I speak in terms of
ideology because that's what
Israel is all about. It is the
divine hand of God and it is not
the Knesset that will save
Israel. It is the Knesset who
(sic) in God's will, will save
Israel."
Kahane also expressed little
enthusiasm about the signifi-
cance of either another Likud/
Labor unity government or a
government based on a major-
ity of the right-wing Likud and
smaller religious parties.
"Likud is not different in
any substantive way from
Labor because it's secular,"
said the rabbi. "They are a
secular Zionist party."
On the other hand, Kahane
said, referring to the gain
made by religious parties and
the bargaining chips they are
supposed to wield, 'the victory
of the Orthodox parties was
not as people think a gain
for the right or for national-
ism.
"The Orthodox parties have
their own narrow agenda.
They don't concern themselves
with Arab issues, with the
issue of transfer." Rather, he
said, the religious parties focus
on agenda items such as con-
version by non-Orthodox rab-
bis; change in Sabbath laws
and ultra-Orthodox institu-
tional gains.
"Whatever happens is not
relevant," he said referring to
the government composition.
"Neither party will deal with
the Arab issue," he said. "The
Arabs will continue to multiply
and grow and the intifada
(uprising) will spread into
Israel proper. And what we
see now will be the same thing,
except, much worse."
ARABS TRANSFER
A new party named Molodet
gained two seats in the Knes-
set, on a similar platform of
"transferring" Arabs. Kahane
considered it a "great victory"
for his party that the contro-
versial issue was boosted by
Molodet but said he "abso-
lutely" disagrees with that
party on three fundamental
points.
"They speak of a voluntary
transfer, which every child
knows is insanity," he said.
"We speak of whether they
want to go or not they will
go. Second, they speak about
(transferring) only the Arabs
in the territories (West Bank
and Gaza) when again any
child knows that the most dan-
gerous Arabs for Israel are the
Israeli Arabs.
"They are citizens, they
vote, they influence the coun-
try and they have the power to
become the majority. The
third, and most important dif-
ference, is that we are a religi-
ous party and they are not.
They are a secular Zionist
party," and without a Torah
observant state there is no
difference between left or
right, he said.
Asked about the election of
George Bush as the 41st presi-
dent of the United States,
Kahane said the issue isn't
relevant. "Whoever it is, there
will be pressure on Israel," he
said. "If Israel has faith in God
and realizes we have to follow
the burning bush rather than
George Bush, we'll be OK."
HEARx Chairman
To Appear On
National TV Show
Paul A. Brown, M.D. foun-
der and chairman of HEARx
Ltd. and a resident of Palm
Beach, will appear as a guest
on "The Joe Franklin Show"
to be broadcast Friday,
November 25, at 1:00 am.
The TV talk show, which is
celebrating its host's 40th
anniversary, is broadcast
nationally on New York
Superstation WWOR and can
be seen on local cable ser-
vices.
Dr. Brown, an outspoken
advocate for ethical practices
in the treatment of the hear-
ing impaired, founded
HEARx in 1986, and the
company, headquartered in
West Palm Beach, success-
fully went public early this
year. HEARx currently oper-
ates six hearing centers in
Palm Beach, Broward and
Dade counties and seven in
Atlanta. In addition, the com-
pany operates a custom-built
Mobile Van, a complete hear-
ing care clinic on wheels,
which offers free hearing
screenings to the public, at
senior centers, condo commu-
nities, schools and health
fairs throughout the area.
Dr. Brown holds degrees
from Harvard College and
Tufts University School of
Medicine. From 1970 to 1984
he was Chairman of the
Board of MetPath Inc., a
nationwide network of clini-
cal laboratory services to
physicians and hospitals
which he founded while a
resident in pathology.
MetPath was sold to Coming
Glass Works in 1982 for $140
million.
On "The Joe Franklin
Show" Dr. Brown will
address issues of concern to
the more than 20 million
hearing impaired Americans,
which include 900,000 school
children.

Unlearning the Root
Cause of Terrorism
By BERNARD SAPER
An Israeli bus is set on fire
in the administered West
Bank, killing a mother and her
three children and wounding
many others. It's only the lat-
est incident of rebellious ter-
rorism this year, a year in
which more than 300 people
most of them innocent, apoliti-
cal, non-military have
already been murdered not
only in the intifada but also in
sorts of things. They're
instilled with dogmatic values,
admonished to keep alive their
righteous rage, drilled in the
propriety of their mission and
the legitimacy of their grie-
vances, convinced that they
and their people have been
wronged, indoctrinated in the
wonderful after-life pay-off of
martyrdom, tutored in the
variety of violent options avail-
able in their holy struggle, and
Terrorist beliefs, justifications, and
tactics are learned in much the same way
as are language, morals, and the routine
activities of daily living.
such places as Greece,
Lebanon, India and Sudan.
What possesses these perpe-
trators to resort to such hei-
nous acts?
Just about anything and
everything: revenge or redress
for some alleged personal
injury; publicity or public sym-
pathy for a messianic goal; just
cause or deeply held ideal;
back-door entrance into the
governance or some similar
ploy for gaining political effi-
cacy; release of a relative or
comrade from government
prison; to rid society of some
rationalized injustice, inequity
or similar oppression; to gen-
erate fear, chaos and anarchy
in the hated 'Establishment;'
to promote the dignity of a
religion, culture or countercul-
ture.
The trouble with these
explanations, taken individu-
ally, is that they mistakenly
view terrorism as inevitable.
Also, they tend to ignore its
complexity, failing to acknowl-
edge the diverse strands of
distinctive personal motiva-
tions, religious or ethnic men-
talities, and geopolitical aspir-
ations of the perpetrators.
They are too simplistic. They
don't address the basic issue of
root cause, the thing that is
really behind such acts. And
most important, they don't
answer the crucial question of
why the vast majority of
oppressed and aggrieved peo-
ple of this world do not resort
to the outrageous violence,
savage intimidation or no-
holds-barred "holy war" that
is deliberately and randomly
directed against often inno-
cent civilians those uncon-
scionable acts that define ter-
rorism.
The common thread that
runs through all these explana-
tions is learning. Terrorist
beliefs, justifications, and tac-
tics are learned in much the
same way as are language,
morals, and the routine activi-
ties of daily living. Learned
informally at home, in school,
church, temple or mosque, in
the playground and on the
street. Learned formally in
special training camps, which
in some cases, are state-
sponsored. Acquired through
conditioning, imitation, trial-
and-error, and indoctrination
by parents, peers, and teach-
ers. There's nothing special,
arcane or evil about this pro-
cess.
The content the subject
matter or "what" of learn-
ing is quite another matter.
Votaries (religious devotees)
who are recruited for terror-
ism are carefully taught all
trained in the use of the wea-
ponry, skills and techniques of
disruption, destruction and
assassination.
Modern terrorism is not a
helter-skelter operation con-
ducted by amateurs. It's
usually a highly professional
enterprise for which a lot of
formal training is systemati-
cally provided. (An exception
is the intifada, which may be
spontaneous rather than sys-
tematically controlled by the
PLO.) Lybia, South Yemen,
Iran, PLO, and until the last
few years, Syria, have all been
known to sponsor, manage and
fund the training of terrorists.
Muammar Khaddafi (quoted
in The New York Times, Jan.
15, 1986): "I declare that we
shall train them for terrorist
and suicide missions and allo-
cate trainers for them and
place all the weapons needed
for such missions at their dis-
posal."
The doctrines of terror know
no national boundaries, no
obsolescences, and no restric-
tions in terms of methodology,
ideological impetus or material
support. For example, a 48-
page "Mini-Manual" published
The doctrines of
terror know no
national boundaries
and know no
restrictions.
back in 1969 by Brazilian Car-
los Marighella, continues to
inspire and teach guerrilla
activities to extremists on both
the radical left and the fanati-
cal right in many different
countries throughout the
world.
If learning is the real root
cause of terrorism, then
shouldn't it be possible to emp-
loy the same principles to
teach would-be terrorists those
motives, beliefs and tactics
that are alternatively more
peaceful, beneficent and con-
structive? Qf course! But
that's easier said than done.
The present socio-cultural
and geopolitical environments
of the world are still unconge-
nial for mounting effective
counter-terrorist programs.
However, it wouldn't hurt to
attempt to include re-
indoctrination, "deprogram-
ming" and similar psychologi-
cal approaches in the arma-
mentariums of international
terrorist fighters.
Dr. Bernard Saper is a professor of
psychology at Florida International
University. A clinical psychologist, he
has also written extensively on health
and mental health matters, on humor
and its applications, and on aggres-
sion and violence, including terrorism.

How Washington Shakes Out
And Shapes Up
By MORRIS J. AMITAY
All over Washington the
guessing game as to the future
direction and new personalit-
ies of the Bush Administration
is in full swing. For friends of
Israel, however, the bottom
line remains basically the same
as it has been for the past forty
years we will have to rely a
great deal on Israel's suppor-
ters in the Congress to counter
what is shaping up as an
"even-handed" Administra-
tion.
According to at least two top
Bush aides, Bush himself does
not have the same instinctive
positive feelings towards
Israel as Ronald Reagan did.
And, if former Secretary of
State, Alexander Haig, and
columnist William Safire, are
to be believed Bush as vice
president reacted negatively
both to Israel's actions in
Lebanon and its air strike
against the Iraqi nuclear reac-
tor. More recently, Bush had
tried to shift some of the blame
for the Irangate fiasco to
Israel, stating in a television
interview that the arms sales
were "an operation in the
hands of a foreign power."
Previously he had told the
Tower Commission that the
United States' policy was in
"the grip of the Israelis."
These reactions are in sharp
contrast to the more positive
Bush Middle East position
paper released during the cam-
paign. But as we should realize
by now, pro-Israel campaign
rhetoric is rarely, if ever, a
reliable guide to future poli-
cies. This would seem particu-
larly so at this juncture when
James Baker will be replacing
George Shultz as secretary of
state. There is scant reason to
believe that the thoughtful,
sympathetic approach Shultz
maintained toward Israel will
be duplicated by his successor.
Baker, who has visited Saudi
Arabia, but not Israel, can be
expected to push hard for addi-
tional sales of sophisticated
U.S. arms to "moderate" Arab
nations.
Nor should the expected
naming of former Texas Sen-
ator John Tower to Defense,
and Gen. Brent Scowcroft as
national security adviser cause
Israel's friends to jump for joy.
But in all fairness, given the
new roles of all these players
and the realities of the Middle
East we will have to wait
and see what lines of policy
emerge. For now, however,
the most appropriate message
might be "worry now
details to follow."
What is more certain, given
the results of the Congres-
sional races around the coun-
try, is that the 101st Congress
convening this January, should
be even more supportive of a
close U.S.-Israel relationship
than its predecessor.
In the House of Representa-
tives, while the leadership and
commitment of Jack Kemp will
be missed, the pro-Israel orien-
tation will be maintained as all
incumbents in important posi-
tions on key communities have
been returned to office. In
fact, among the newcomers,
Republican Steve Schiff of
New Mexico and Paul Gillmor
of Ohio along with Democrats
Ben Jones of Georgia and
Peter Hoagland of Minnesota,
should be markedly better on
Israel-related issues than their
predecessors.
On the Senate side, the two
newly elected Democratic Jew-
ish Senators, Joe Lieberman of
Connecticut and Herb Kohl of
Wisconsin, will be joining re-
elected Jewish Senators, How-
ard Metzenbaum of Ohio,
Frank Lautenberg of New Jer-
sey and incumbent Carl Levin
of Michigan. They can all be
counted upon for strong sup-
port. A former Republican sen-
ator, Slade Gorton of Wash-
ington, is replacing retired
Senator Dan Evans, a some-
times vocal critic of Israel in
the Foreign Relations Com-
mittee. Two former Demo-
cratic Governors, Bob Kerrey
of Nebraska and Chuck Robb
of Virginia, and current Gover-
nor Richard Bryan of Nevada,
should all turn out to be articu-
late, knowledgeable additions
to the pro-Israel Senate ranks.
Bryan replaces Senator Chic
Hecht of Nevada, whose loss
leaves three Jewish Republi-
can Senators, Rudy Boschwitz
of Minnesota, Arlen Specter of
Pennsylvania and Warren
Rudman of New Hampshire.
Richard Licht, a Jewish candi-
date whose race had been the
focus of a distorted "60 Min-
utes" television presentation,
was unsuccessful in his bid for
a Senate seat in Rhode Island.
The winner, John Chafee, had
been erroneously identified as
an AIPAC "target" by Mike
Wallace on this program.
Many of Israel's long-time
ten years or more friends
in the Senate won re-election
to another six year term eas-
ily. These included Dennis
DeConcini of Arizona, Spark
Matsunaga of Hawaii, Paul
Sarbanes of Maryland, Ted
Kennedy of Massachusetts,
Don Riegle of Michigan, David
Durenberger of Minnesota,
John Danforth of Missouri, Pat
Moynihan of New York, John
Heinz of Pennsylvania and Jim
Sasser of Tennessee.
Given all the uncertainties as
to the next government in
Israel, the Middle East in gen-
eral, and in the final make-up
of our own administration, we
can be thankful for the wisdom
of our founders in establishing
our system of checks and bal-
ances. This should help steer
our nation on a more steady
course in the Middle East in
the months ahead. But we will
also need the increased active
involvement of the American
Jewish community in ensuring
the continuation of close U.S.-
Israel ties, and greater unde-
rstanding of the harsh dilem-
mas facing Israel.

Elections, Anti-Semitism Focus
Of A JCommittee Conclave
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) A
conference on Middle Eastern
women held here last month by
the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith was long in
listing the woes of women in
Israel, but strong in highlight-
ing a remarkable unity
between Jewish and Moslem
women.
The conference, focusing on
Israel and Egypt, brought
together a spirited group of
women that included Asian-
American and black American
women.
The spirit of unity was
emphasized by a Moslem
woman in attendance who
said, "I do not think that any-
one is more my sister than a
Jewish woman."
Camelia Sadat, daughter of
slain Egyptian President
Anwar Sadat and founder of
the Sadat Peace Institute,
addressed the question of
women and society in Egypt.
"My stepmother suffered a
BOSTON (JTA) The elec-
tions in Israel and the United
States, and how their out-
comes may affect relations
between the two countries,
were high on the agenda of the
recent four-day annual meet-
ing of the American Jewish
Committee's National Execu-
tive Council.
There was a forum on "Chal-
lenges to Democracy in
Israel."
But there were discussions
on a wide range of other
topics, including a seminar on
"Anti-Semitism and Anti-
Zionism in the International
Arena," which introduced the
American Jewish participants
to two prominent European
Jewish leaders not previously
familiar on this side of the
Atlantic.
There was a cautiously
optimistic discussion of the sit-
uation confronting Soviet
Jews as well as developments
that may limit the number of
Soviet Jews able to resettle in
the United States next year.
On the election front,
Michael Kramer, chief political
correspondent for U.S. News
and World Report, a conserva-
tive news weekly, told a plen-
ary session on "Election '88"
that "on the overall topic of
support for the State of Israel,
there is hardly a dime's differ-
ence between the two candi-
dates."
Dr. Arye Carmon, president
of the Israel-Diaspora Insti-
tute at Tel Aviv University,
told the forum on Israeli demo-
cracy that the Israeli election
touches "only peripherally on
several deeply disputed, unre-
solved and fundamental
issues."
According to Carmon there-
fore, the Knesset election of
1992 may well be more deci-
sive than the outcome of the
one last week.
Tullia Zevi, president of the
Union of Italian Jewish Com-
munities, and Rabbi Awraham
Soetendorp of the Liberal Jew-
ish communities of The Hague,
Rotterdam and Amsterdam
agreed that while anti-
Semitism and anti-Zionism
have not been eradicated in
Europe, the current problems
require careful examination.
Israel's Image Spurring
Anti-Semitism
Both addressed the plenary
session of AJCommittee's
international relations depart-

"We must learn to live with
the paradox that the State of
Israel was created to put an
end to anti-Semitism, Zevi
said.
"But today the image of
Israel projected on the Jews of
the Diaspora produces new
forms or resurrects old forms
of anti-Semitism."
Soetendorp noted that
despite tensions resulting
from the Palestinian uprising,

to significant bonds and
greater understanding
between the Jewish and non-
Jewish communities in the
Netherlands.
Hp HUhI iuc phenomenon,
the increasing number of
Dutch people who want to con-
vert to Judaism.
David Harris, AJCommit-
tee's Washington representa-
tive, reported on the upward
trend of Soviet-Jewish emigra-
tion. But despite the good
news, "the need for advocacy
continues," he said.
Harris thinks the best
answer to the controversy
over "neshira" Jews who
leave the USSR on Israeli
visas but opt to settle some-
where else is the two-track
solution.
Those Jews who want to go
to Israel will travel on Israeli
visas and those who seek reset-
tlement in the United States
will exit with American visas.
But Harris predicted that
with the United States estab-
lishing overall and regional
ceilings for refugee admis-
sions, if the current emigra-
tion trend continues there will
not be sufficient slots available
for the Soviet and East Euro-
pean regions in the 1988-89
fiscal year to permit the entry
of those Soviet Jews who want
to resettle in the United
States.
He suggested that the Amer-
ican Jewish community urge
the U.S. government to allo-
cate additional emergency
slots.
lot from being liberal," said
Sadat, who now lives in Bos-
ton. "But today, with a third of
the Parliament females, I
think it helps a lot."
Professor Alice Shalvi of
Jerusalem, director of the
Israel Women's Network, and
Pnina Lahav, a law professor
at Boston University and an
expert in the Israeli and Amer-
ican legal systems, spoke pes-
simistically on Israeli women's
legal status.
Both laid blame for this on
Israel's religious parties.
"I do not see any Knesset in
the future separating religious
and secular law," said Shalvi.
Neither Shalvi nor the other
speakers were asking that a
"woman be more like a man,"
but emphasized instaed tbe
"softer" attributes of women
that would enhance coexist-
ence.
Perhaps the most heart-
warming delivery came from
Kitam Massarwa, wife of
Israel's first Arab consul, who
is posted in Atlanta.
Her bold speech, filled with
personal observations about
the progress of Arab women in
Israel, raised a tremendous
amount of goodwill.
Massarwa noted that "the
high technological standard of
Israel is reflected in our every-
day life, even for women with
a modest income Our fatal-
ity is among the lowest in the
world because of wonderful
prenatal and postnatal care in
Israel."
Not shying from the problem
of the Palestinian uprising,
Massarwa said, "We are on
the one hand Arabs and Pales-
tinians by birth.
"On the other hand, we are
also Israeli citizens. During the
war, we as mothers suffered
twice as much. First, for our
flesh and blood .. second, for
our Jewish neighbors.
"The Palestinian problem is
painful for us. We are anxious
for peace, for safety and dig-
nity for both sides. Let us
work together for life instead
of death."
American Attorneys To
Aid Soviet Refuseniks
A new avenue of support
may be opening for Soviet
refuseniks with the recent
commitment of 35 American
lawyers to represent Soviet
Jews who have continually
been denied permission to emi-
grate.
The unique legal advocacy
program will give the Soviet
refuseniks additional support
to complement Soviet Jewry
support groups, Israelis and
American congressional lead-
ers.
The legal commitment
resulted from a meeting last
month between congregants
and attorneys at Temple Bet
Breira and Temple Samu-
El/Or Olom.
According to attorney
Michael Tryson, Soviet author-
ities seem to respect American
lawyers, judges and other offi-
cials. Tryson is chairperson of
the lawyer's committee of the
South Florida Conference on
Soviet Jewry.
The type of person the group
will represent is refusenik
Pobereshsky Matus of Mos-
cow, who is being denied per-
mission to leave because he
allegedly possesses state
secrets. Although Matus
reportedly says he can prove
he has not had access to secret
or confidential information for
the past 12 years, the Russian
authorities will not permit him
to leave and join his family.
Rabbi Edward Farber of
Temple Samu-El/Or Olom
stressed that Soviets are using
every means possible to emi-
grate and that American law-
yers can add another layer of
pressure on Soviet authorities.
Attorneys Peter Tell and
Martin Levine of Temple
Samu-El/Or Olom and other
participating attorneys said
the goal is for the attorneys to
communicate with Soviet and
other authorities on behalf of
their clients. The program is
administered locally by the
South Florida Conference on
Soviet Jewry. For informa-

Israel Diplomats Taught Restraint
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel
has instructed its diplomatic
representatives all over the
world on how to respond to the
proclamation of an independ-
ent Palestinian state by the
Palestine National Council.
Israel also has plans to block
any move at the United
Nations to recognize such a
state.
The PNC, often described as
the Palestinian parliament in
exile, is considered by Israel to
be a branch of the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
While Israeli leaders dismiss
a declaration of a Palestinian
state in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip as meaningless
rhetoric, there seems to be
concern at high government
levels over its possible impact
abroad.
Haaretz reported that the
Foreign Ministry sent infor-
mation bulletins to missions
overseas instructing Israeli
diplomats to reject anything
that may emerge from the
PNC session.
They warned that the PNC
might use UN General Assem-
bly Resolution 181 to seek
legitimacy for its claim of
Palestinian independence.
Adopted on Nov. 29, 1947, it
called for the partition of
Palestine into separate Jewish
and Arab states.
The resolution became irrel-
evant when Arab armies
attacked Israel in May 1948,
the Foreign Ministry's docu-
ment states. The PLO's recog-
nition of 181 therefore does
not constitute a forward step
in the direction of peace.
The document, according to
Haaretz, was introduced at a
meeting of the Inner Cabinet
by Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres.
It stresses further that UN
Security Council resolutions
242 and 338 are the only reso-
lutions pertinent to the Arab-
Israeli conflict.


Was Columbus Jewish?
Friday, November 25, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 13
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Specu-
lation over whether Chris-
[topher Columbus had Jewish
incestry has been alive for
generations at least since
the 1930s, when the Spanish
scholar, Salvador de Madri-
i, made a case for it.
But could it be true?
There are grounds to believe
so, Italy's ambassador to
Israel, Alberto Leoncini Bar-
loli, said. He spoke at the
Opening of the Columbus Exhi-
bition at the National Mant-
le Museum in Haifa.
Bartoli admitted that "noth-
lg is settled" about Colum-
bus' origin. But "there might
something to the claim"
lat he was Jewish, the envoy
lid.
He noted that Columbus'
pother, "a daughter of the
lontanarosa family, was
named Susanna, which is a
Jewish name."
The Italian port city of
Genoa claims him as a native
son and will celebrate the
500th anniversary of his voy-
ages of discovery in 1992.
The envoy invited Israel to
participate.
So has Spain, under whose
auspices Columbus sailed.
Spain is planning a year-long
celebration of the event, which
coincides with the 500th anni-
versary of the expulsion of
Jews from that country.
Spain will highlight the con-
tributions made by Jews to
Spanish culture and history.
Could Columbus have been
one of them? Some scholars
have pointed out that his fam-
ily name, Colon, was one used
by Marranos Jews forced to
convert to the Catholic faith
who secretly practiced their
own religion.
Rabbi Lau
Ashkenazic Head Of Tel Aviv
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Rabbi
Israel Lau was installed as Tel
Aviv's Ashkenazic chief rabbi,
in a three-hour ceremony that
marked a victory for liberal
elements in the religious estab-
lishment at a time of growing
concern over religious coer-
cion.
Lau, a Holocaust survivor,
had been chief rabbi of Net-
anya. His accession was
delayed for two years because
of objections by the Chief Rab-
binate over the presence of a
woman on the Tel Aviv Religi-
ous Council that selected him.
The Chief Rabbinate backed
down only after the Supreme
Court ruled that Lau's
appointment was legitimate.
The installation at the Mann
Auditorium here was attended
by Premier Yitzhak Shamir,
Religious Affairs Minister
Zevulun Hammer, and Avra-
ham Shapiro and Mordechai
Eliahu, the Ashkenazic and
Sephardic chief rabbis of Israel
respectively.
Rabbi Lau, though Ortho-
dox, is known to have a liberal
personal outlook. He said he
would work to bridge the reli-
gious-secular gap. He stressed
that the key was education.

lldest Jew In World Dies At 113
By MICHAEL SOLOMON
[MONTREAL (JTA) -
^seph Joffre died at Maimo-
ies Hospital here last week
the age of 113. He was
kssibly the oldest living Jew
id one of the oldest men in
world.
le succumbed to what were
^scribed as natural causes.
le was lucid until the very
st moment," said Minny
feenblatt, the youngest of his
children.
['I console myself with the
pt that he died with dignity
1 lived a full life," she said.
loffre said he was born on
ch 10, 1875, in Libau, Lat-
[, then part of the Czarist
Dire. But his birth date was
[verified.
le was never registered
feause in Russia in 1875, a
rish child was never consid-
^d worth registering," his
lghter said. But she said his
th was recorded at the local
lagogue.
iccording to Joffre, he
rived in Canada in 1893,
ring previously earned a
ztorate in chemistry in Ger-
iny and studied in London
kere he was ordained a rabbi.
If correct, Joffre, at age 18,
ready had a Ph.D. and rab-
lical ordination.
He worked in Canadian hos-
ls as a chemist and founded
artificial limb company in
ttawa.
[There he met a fellow immi-
rant from Latvia, Sarah
filler. They wed in 1912,
ting a marriage that ended
years later with her death
age 86.
| Joffre served as a medical
Fficer with the Canadian
ay in Europe during World
Far I.
I Afterwards, he settled in
(ontreal where he founded
fo chemical companies.
(According to his family,
)ffre was never ill nor was he
rer hospitalized until 10
^onths ago.
He is survived by four of his
lildren, 14 grandchildren and
great-grandchildren.
Until a few years ago he
irticipated in an annual 20-
lile hike around Montreal
lown as the "March to Jeru-
salem." It is held in May by the
Jewish community to mark the
anniversary of Israel's inde-
pendence.
JERUSALEM (INB) Staf-
fers at government-owned
Israel Television are embroiled
in a dispute over the contro-
versial behavior of one of their
Arab reporters.
At the center of the dispute
is Rafik Haj Yiyeh, a reporter
for Israel TV's Arabic-
language news program.
Although Yiyeh is the educa-
tional affairs reporter, he has
in recent months frequently
covered stories involving the
Arab riots.
But when he was recently
assigned to cover a story about
the throwing of firebombs in
his hometown of Taibeh, Yiyeh
refused.
Bania and his staff then
approached two Jerusalem-
based television reporters, Eli
Nisan and Albert Bahar, and
asked them to substitute for
Yiyeh. They declined. .
Finally Miriam Kirshen-
baum, Israel TV's arts and
entertainment reporter, was
sent to cover the Taibeh story.
Ismail and other editors at
the Arabic-language news divi-
sion were furious over the inci-
dent and demanded that Yiyeh
be dismissed. Bania, however,
said he accepted Yiyeh's expla-
nation that he feared his life
would be in danger if he cov-
ered the story.
But sources at Israel TV told
the weekly magazine Meurav
Yerushalmi that the real rea-
son Yiyeh declined to cover the
story is that he intends to run
for the Taibeh City Council
and did not want to be part of a
story that might make Taibeh
look bad.

REBIRTH OF A SYNAGOGUE. In East Berlin, crowds
attended the symbolic laying of the foundation stone of the
synagogue, in background, on Oranienburger Strasse. The

Mazer On Campaign Goals
Continued from Page 1
remains surrounded by ene-
mies who have sworn to its
destruction." Mazer added
that Campaign workers will
continue to emphasize that
UJA funds are never used for
military purposes, serving only
the social needs of the country.
Since deciding to limit his
law practice in Philadelphia,
Mazer has been able to spend
most of his time in Palm
Beach. He and his wife have
been part-time residents, since
1973.
In 1987, Mazer was one of
Jeane Levy's Associate Cam-
paign Chairs responsible for
Palm Beach Island and in 1988
he was a member of the Major
Gifts Committee.
As Campaign Chair, Mazer
has developed a three-fold
approach to the 1989 Cam-
paign: He hopes to increase
the major gifts component,
which in the past has provided
one third of the campaign
funds; he plans to emphasize
the central giving level (from
$1200 to $10,000) with special
appeals made to "dual-
citizens" who still maintain
their loyalties to their north-
ern roots, but who have
adopted Palm Beach County as
their second home. He hopes
to emphasize that part-time
residents have responsibilities
to Palm Beach as well; and
third, he hopes to broaden the
base of campaign participants
to include a substantially lar-
ger number of workers and
givers from the community.
"The Jewish Federation is
very fortunate to have been
able to obtain a man of Mr.
Mazer's background and devo-
tion to serve as General Cam-
paign Chairman this year,"
said Alec Engelstein, Presi-
dent of the Jewish Federation.
"We are looking forward to a
very successful campaign that
will bring the annual total
pledges to a new high."

Illuminated Books Shed Light
On Jewish Literary History
/
Jeffrey Rudom
By ANDREW SILOW CARROLL
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Jews of medieval Spain call-
ed their holy books "Mik-
dashyot," or "Sanctuaries of
God, as homage to the des-
troyed Second Temple, and a
new exhibition on the history
of Hebrew manuscripts shows
how literally they interpreted
that idea.
In the Harley Catalan Bible
of the 14th century, on loan
from the British Library in
London, an artist used a
vibrant gold paint on a check-
ered pink and blue background
to depict a variety of sanctuary
implements.
They include the ark, an
altar, a fire pan, pots for
ashes, a seven-branched men-
orah and basins for the blood
of sacrifices.
As a Sephardic scholar of the
14th and 15th century wrote:
"As God wanted to beautify
his holy place with gold, silver
and jewels, so (should it) be
properly done with His holy
books."
The impulse of Jews to beau-
tify their books is richly disp-
layed in "A Sign and a Wit-
ness: 2,000 Years of Hebrew
Books and Illuminated
Hebrew Manuscripts," on
view through Jan. 14 at the
New York Public Library.
The exhibit features 185 of
what the organizers call the
most historically significant
and beautiful books in the
Hebrew language, culled from
collections in the United
States, Israel and Europe.
On view are all manner of
Hebrew books, including
Bibles and Talmuds, prayer-
books and Haggadahs, scien-
tific texts and novels.
The examples are as ancient
as a fragile portion of the Dead
Sea Scrolls from 63 BCE, and
as modern as a copy of Lamen-
tations printed in Elkins Park,
Pa., in 1985.
Two Main Themes
On a recent tour of the
exhibition, Dr. Leonard
Singer Gold, Dorot chief
librarian of the library's Jew-
ish division and the exhibi-
tion's curator, said there were
two main themes guiding his
choice of exhibits.
"The first is the primacy of
the Hebrew book, and that
examples of Hebrew literature
merit attention in their own
right," said Gold.
As an example, he pointed
out a page from the San'a
Pentaeuch, completed in
Yemen in 1469.
Tiny Hebrew letters,
actually Psalms 119 and 121,
form the outlines of flowers,
mountains and schools of
swimming fish. "No other tra-
dition that we know of does
quite the same thing with mini-
writing," he explained.
Illustrating a second theme,
Gold described a number of
exhibits that show how Jews
were "always transmitting
ideas back and forth with the
cultures around them. No mat-
ter how ghettoized, Jews have
never been far from the main-
stream."
In the Kaufman Mishneh
Torah of 1295-1296, Maimo-
nides' great work is decorated
in a manner familiar from
Gothic manuscripts.
The influence extends to a
whimsically drawn "obscae-
nium," in which an archer
shoots an arrow at another
figure across the page, where,
in Gold's words, "this poor
creature is getting it in the
hindquarters."
The traffic was in ideas as
well as in artistic styles. In one
of the five sections of the
exhibition, "Understanding
the Universe," there are
works included on mathemat-
ics, astronomy, geography,
medicine, classical philosophy
and relations with Christians.
Only half of the exhibits in
"A Sign and a Witness" are
illuminated, and Gold acknowl-
edged that 90 percent of his-
tory's Hebrew books are not
graced with decoration.
This was not due to any
prohibition on illustration
Gold said that contrary to a
widely held misconception, a
biblical injunction against
making graven images was
interpreted differently accord-
ing to the time and place.
For every "Bird's Head
Haggadah," completed in Ger-
many around 1300 and depict-
ing characters with the heads
of animals, there is a book like
the Golden Haggadah of 14th
century Spain, featuring rec-
ognizable human figures.
Gold spent four years assem-
bling the exhibition touring
archives, getting permission to
borrow rare manuscripts and
securing grants to offset some
$35 million in insurance.
Single Page Available
Typical of his efforts was his
successful attempt to bor-
row a page of the 10th century
Aleppo Codex from the Ben-
Tsvi Institute for the Study of
Jewish Communities of the
East, in Jerusalem.
"The book is so holy that it
cannot be removed from Jeru-
salem. I asked for an excep-
tion, but they wouldn't do it,"
said Gold.
However, Gold learned that
a single leaf had been torn
away from the manuscript and
that the decree didn't extend
to pages already separated
from the bound volume.
"So I asked, and asked
again," said Gold. "And we're
very lucky to have it here for
the exhibition."
Gold also had to assure each
of the 30 museums that lent
exhibits that their contribu-
tions would be immune from
seizure that is, ownership of
the pieces cannot be disputed
while the exhibits are in New
York.
The ownership of Judaica
engenders controversy, as
seen in an exhibition that is
running concurrently with "A
Sign and A Witness."
The exhibition, "A Visual
Testimony: Judaica from the
Vatican Library," was organ-
ized by the Center for the Fine
Arts in Miami and the Union of
American Hebrew Congrega-
tions.
Vatican Manuscripts
It features 57 manuscripts
acquired by the Vatican
from private libraries, monas-
teries and Jewish converts.
At other stops on its nation-
wide tour, the exhibit has
drawn protests from groups
questioning the Vatican's
ownership of many of the man-
uscripts.
"A Sign and a Witness" has
so far steered clear of any
controversy. It was planned to
coincide with Israel's 40th
anniversary, and the exhibi-
tion is being treated with a
sense of celebration by visitors
and employees of the New
York Public Library.
Tours and lectures are being
held throughout its run, and a
companion volume has been
published by the library and
Oxford University Press
($24.95).
The exhibition, made possi-
ble by a grant from Jewish
philanthropists Edith and
Henry Everett, will be on view
free of charge in the Library's
Gottesman Exhibition Hall.
Hours are Monday through
Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
and Tuesdays until 8:45 p.m.

Soviets Promise Cultural Center
And Hebrew Learning
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) -
A promise to legalize the
teaching of Hebrew in the
Soviet Union and the establish-
ment of a Jewish cultural cen-
ter in Moscow appear to be the
prime fruits of talks held
recently in Moscow between
Soviet Foreign Minister
Eduard Shevardnadze and
Jewish leaders.
Participants in the extraor-
dinary two-hour discussion,
which reportedly covered all
substantive issues of concern
to Soviet Jewry, included
Edgar Bronfman and Israel
Singer, president and secre-
tary-general respectively of
the World Jewish Congress;
Simcha Dinitz, chairman of the
World Zionist Organization-
Jewish Agency Executive; and
Mendel Kaplan, chairman of
the Jewish Agency Board of
Governors.
Elan Steinberg, WJCon-
gress executive director,
described the talks as taking
place "in an atmosphere of
warmth and openness." He
said the discussion covered
"general international rela-
tions, the Mideast and the
Soviet Jewry question in all its
aspects."
"By their actions, they are
indicating that they are eager
to get the question of Jewish
rights and emigration off the
bargaining table. And it's
actions, rather than simply
words, that count," said Stein-
berg.
A participant to the talks
who asked not to be named
said the discussion included a
' "lengthy review of emigration
statistics and procedures. We
were advised that the recent
favorable trend in terms of
numbers would continue."
The Jewish delegation also
raised the issue of government
anti-Semitism.
To Open In February
Of central importance to the
talks was the establishment of
a Jewish cultural center, which
is expected to open in Febru-
ary. Agreement for the center
was inked in Oct. 21 in Moscow
between Isi Leibler, head of
the Australian Jewish com-
munity and vice president of
the WJCongress, and Mikhail
Gluz, director of the small,
official Moscow Jewish Musi-
cal Theater.
The center is expected to
feature a Jewish library, in-
cluding books in Russian,
Hebrew, Yiddish and English.
Keep us informed.
Has something
exciting happened in
your life? Did you or
someone you know
recently receive an
award, a promotion, a
new position? Has a
member of yonr family
graduated with honors or
just got engaged?
Let us know.
We are interested in
the lives of the members
of our community. Send
your typewritten infor-
mation to The Jewish
Floridian, 501 S. Flagler
Drive, Suite 305, West
Palm Beach, FL, 33401.
The Jewish delegation brought
to Moscow the largest ship-
ment ever of books on Jewish
subjects in those languages.
The center will be named the
Solomon Mikhoels Cultural
Center, after the famed Rus-
sian Yiddish actor, who was
murdered by Stalin in 1949.
Mikhoel's relatives, who live in
Israel, will be invited to the
February opening of the
center.
The center is expected to be
directed by refuseniks,
Hebrew teachers and Jewish
activists, including Yuli Kos-
harovsky, Mikhhail Chlenov
and Velvel Chernin.
Kosharovsky, one of the
most critical voices among
Soviet Jews, hailed the center
as "the most important break-
through on Jewish culture in
the Soviet Union over the last
half century and an important
demonstration that pere-
stroika (restructuring) can
work even for the Jews."
The delegation was given
assurances that the de facto
legalization of the private
teaching of Hebrew had taken
place, and that the law pro-
hibiting that activity would be
deleted from the revised
Soviet penal code, possibly by
spring.
In addition, the contract for
the cultural center provides in
its second phase for a facility
for the teaching of Hebrew
and Yiddish.
In New York, the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry
issued a statement Friday say-
ing it could not "accept the
WJC/Soviet Ministry of
Culture agreement at face
value."
Shoshana Cardin, the con-
ference's new chairwoman,
said, "we will not accept token
gestures; we urge a fully func-
tioning Jewish resource cen-
ter, in which Soviet Jews will
be informed about their his-
tory, tradition and modern
homeland in Israel."
The normally hard-line Stu-
dent Struggle for Soviet
Jewry, however, said last
week it welcomed the estab-
lishment of the cultural center.

there I was moved by almost

sion after landing in Tel Aviv
was that this was a very
endearing country. It's an
incredible feeling to be in a
land that is all Jewish. You feel
welcome and a part of some-
thing and I was fascinated by
everything and everyone."
Hanser concluded, "In the
past I made my contributions
willingly, as a result of this
trip, I will make them enthusi-
astically."
Another local attorney, Mike
Platner, feels, he too got a
tremendous amount from the
mission. "Israel's a very com-

plained. "There is much to see

Rabin Warns Against Demonstrations
TEL AVIV (JTA) Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin warned
Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip of severe
consequences if there is an upsurge of violence in response to the
proclamation of a Palestinian state.
"We are prepared to use maximum force to put down any
demonstrations following any pronouncement in Algiers," Rabin
declared.
Similar warnings were given by senior military commanders
as security forces were beefed up in the territories.
The warnings and show of force were in response to the
then-expected declaration of independence by the Palestinian
National Council at its meeting in Algiers.

impressed by how much the
Israelis have learned and
accomplished agriculturally.
We saw highly developed
areas which have been good,
not only for Israel, but for
bordering countries as well.
Israel has made a positive im-
pact on Jordan and Lebanon.
When you see that, you feel
that there just may be a chance
for peace someday," explained
Platner.
The group was accompanied
by a film crew from local tele-
vision station WPTV-Channel

crew's goal was to bring home
the views, lifestyles and prob-
lems of the Israelis and por-
tray them on a personal level.
"Our trip was very success-
ful," said Kerry Deems, Field
Producer of the Israel series.
"We were able to get a variety
of interviews and significant
footage. We were also very
fortunate to get an interview
with Shimon Peres on the
fringe of the West Bank," said
Deems. "I have such great
admiration for the people who
live in Israel. We learned and
so I feel the people who saw
our series must also have
learned."

Arens' Misrepresentations
Cloud Career
JERUSALEM (INB) A
dark cloud hangs over the
political future of the Likud's
Moshe Arens.
Arens, the Likud's election
campaign chairman, served as
Minister of Defense in 1983-
1984 and as Minister Without
Portfolio since then. He has
made it clear that he aspires to
replace Yitzhak Shamir as
leader of the Likud.
But Aren's political aspira-
tions received a jolt when it
emerged that he has not been
telling the truth about his aca-
demic career. Although Arens
has for years called himself
"professor," it now emerges
that he never was a professor
at all. The Tel Aviv weekly
Ha'ir, which broke the story,
revealed that Arens held an
President-Elect to Pursue
Nazi War Criminals
Vice President Bush said
before the election that, as
president, he will "give full
budgetary and political sup-
port to the Justice Depart-
ment's Office of Special Inves-
tigations."
Speaking at the Simon Wie-
senthal Center in Los Angeles,
Bush pledged to raise his
"voice and the full force of
federal law, when it is violated,
against every hate group,
desecrater and demagogue,
brown shirt, white sheet or
bowtie, in Skokie, Brooklyn,
Chicago wherever it is."
The vice president and Bar-
Watergate Scam?
Israel-Style
bara Bush observed an exhibit
of Holocaust memorabilia in
the Center before the speech.
During his address, the vice
president related to the 300 in
attendance his trip to the Aus-
bara and I visited Auschwitz
and saw with our own eyes the
nightmare that took six million
lives." He also told the gather-
ing that his party platform
contains a resolution condemn-
ing anti-Semitism. "My party
is sworn on record, in its plat-
form, to condemn and oppose
anti-Semitism in its every
manifestation, here and
around the globe."
JERUSALEM (INB) -
Senior officials of the Likud
have accused the Labor Align-
ment of perpetrating an
"Israeli Watergate," following
the discovery of a bugging
device in a Likud branch
office.
The device was found inside
a telephone at a Likud cam-
paign office in the Kfar Macca-
biah Hotel in Ramat Gan.
Danny Naveh, spokesman for
the Likud's Ramat Gan
branch, said that "all signs
point toward a Watergate-
style spying operation unde-
rtaken by the Labor Align-
ment." Naveh said that the
Likud has hired a team of
private investigators to exam-
ine all aspects of the bugging
activity.
Minister Without Portfolio
Moshe Arens, the Likud's cam-
paign chairman, accused
Labor of "descending to a
level of unprecedented stupid-
ity," and warned that the
Likud will consider turning the
matter over to the police.
Labor Alignment spokeswo-
man Michal Cohen denied that
her party was responsible for
the bugging operation. She
also branded as "totally false"
a report in the Israeli daily
Ha'aretz that Labor hired
three former agents of the
Security Services to assist its
campaign. The report implied
that the three agents were
hired in order to provide
expertise in surveillance activi-
ties such as bugging.
But Labor campaign chair-
man Ezer Weizmann subse-
quently confirmed that Labor
Arabs
Adulterate
Dates
ACRE (INB) Four Arab
men have been arrested for
selling dates stuffed with
pieces of glass to Jewish cus-
tomers.
The four suspects two of
whom reportedly have already
confessed, are residents of
the Majdal Karoum village in
the Western Galilee. They
operated a roadside fruit
stand, and kept a carton of
glass-filled dates separate for
sale to Jewish customers.
They were caught after an
Israeli couple purchased the
dates and, upon tasting them,
complained to the police. The
couple suffered minor mouth
injuries.
The Acre police department
has issued a warning to motor-
ists to refrain from purchasing
produce from roadside Arab
stands, which are not super-
vised by any governmental
inspection authority.
had hired the three Security
Services men, who had been
fired from their previous jobs
when they leaked information
implicating their superiors in
the killing of an Arab terrorist
captured under a 1984 bus
hijacking. "They needed jobs,
so we simply hired them,"
Weizmann said, denying that
the three were retained in con-
nection with plans to spy on
Likud campaign activities.
According to Ha'aretz, the
three, Reuven Hazak, Rafi
Malka and Peleg Radai, pro-
vide Weizmann with a daily
report on Likud campaign
appearances and activities
around the country.

Haifa Technion from 1961
until 1965, and later, in 1977,
lectured there.
But he was not a professor
nor does he hold a doctorate.
He has a Master's in aeronau-
tical engineering.
Likud insiders say that
although Arens remains tech-
nically qualified for a senior
position in the Likud, his pres-
ence could give the party a
reputation for being deceptive.
Even before the eruption of
the "professor" scandal,
Arens was distrusted by some
of his Likud colleagues, who
are still angry because while
Arens was Israel's ambassa-
dor to the U.S. in 1982, he
privately pressured Prime
Minister Begin to stop building
Jewish settlements.

Israel Can Restrict
Foreign Journalists
TEL AVIV (INB) Israel
has the right to place restric-
tions on foreign journalists in
certain situations, says the for-
mer chief of the Israel Broad-
casting Authority.
Yosef '
chairman
Authority
made the
view with
quarterly
here.
Tommy" Lapid, the
of the Broadcasting
from 1979 to 1984,
remark in an inter-
Israeli Democracy, a
magazine published
"My freedom to wave my
hand ends at the point where
someone else's nose starts,"
Lapid said, quoting a state-
ment made by former Judge
Haim Landau. Lapid said that
in some situations, "the con-
spicuous presence of the media
could inflame passions to the
extent that public order or
human life endangered." He
was apparently referring to
recent incidents in which mobs
of Arab youths intensified
their rock-throwing attacks
against Israelis as soon as
foreign television crews
arrived.
"In such instances, we are
speaking not of (Israel's)
image but of tangible physical
danger," Lapid said. "In such
exceptional cases, it is justified
to limit or conceal the presence
of the press ... If an army
officer closes a given area on
to the media at the height of a
violent disturbance by Pales-
tinians, which could well inten-
sify at the sight of television
cameras, and thereby endan-
ger the lives of his soldiers,
then his removal of the cam-
eras would be justified."
Without naming names,
Lapid noted that "there are
journalists who seriously dam-
age the good name of the
profession. Whether from lack
of professionalism or the
desire to impose their opinions
on the public, they misuse the
power they hold. Sometimes
this is done openly, and at
other times it is difficult to
know at what point the jour-
nalist makes a mockery of his
profession ... (But) journalists
are quick to deny malicious
intention, and their colleagues
tend to defend them on the
ground of freedom of speech."
Lapid warned that "such mobi-
lization of support for journal-
ists who have betrayed their
trust harms freedom of the
press, by angering the public
and poisoning its perception of
the media."

Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
. "And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath
the same is Bethlehem. And Jacob set up a pillar upon her grave"
VAYISHLAH (Gen. 35.19-20)-
VAYISHLAH Approaching the boundary of the land of Seir
where his brother Esau dwelt, Jacob prudently sent messengers
ahead to inform Esau of his coming and of his wealth. The
messengers returned with the news that Esau was advancing
toward Jacob with 400 men. Terrified, Jacob divided his camp
into two sections, so as not to lose all in the event of an attack. He
sent gifts to Esau and prayed God to save him from his brother.
Jacob crossed the stream of Jabbok with his camp. There, as he
stood alone, an angel approached and wrestled with him. At the
end of the struggle, the angel declared: "They name shall be
called no more Jacob, but Israel; for thou hast striven with God
and with men, and hast prevailed" Genesis 32.99). Thus encour-
aged, Jacob met Esau, whom he treated with the utmost
deference. Embracing, the two brothers kissed, wept, and were
reconciled. Jacob journeyed on to Shechem. There the rape of
Jacob's only daughter, Dinah, by the prince of that city, led to the
vengeful destruction of Shechem by two of Dinah's brothers.
Proceeding to Beth-el, Jacob kept the vow he had made to return
thithere. On the way, Rachel gave birth to Jacob's last and
youngest son, Benjamin. But Rachel died in childbirth, and Jacob
buried her on the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem.
(The recounting of the Weekly Portion of the Law Is extracted and
based upon "The Graphic History of the Jewish Heritage," edited by
P. Wollman-Tsamir, published by Shengold. The volume is available
at 75 Maiden Lane, New York, N.Y. 10038.)
