With friends.

To Israel.
And we can take you there.
You've probably considered

magnetic feelings for this dist-
ant yet familiar "homeland."
Even if you're just an avid
world traveler with no particu-
lar emotional ties to the Jewish
nation, Israel is a place to see.
Would you like to go?
The Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County will take
you there, with friends and
family from this community,
for an exciting eleven day trip
departing Wednesday, March
29 returning Monday, April
10. The cost is only $1499,
round trip per person. And to
encourage wide participation,
there will be absolutely no
solicitation of funds.

Palm Beach County Responds
To 'Who Is A Jew' Question
By LORI SCHULMAN
Professional and lay leaders
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County are
actively participating in
efforts to influence Israeli pol-
itical leaders not to amend the
existing Law of Return, which
is regarded as a threat to
Jewish unity and strong
Israel/Diaspora relations.
In order to lobby against the
recent amendment that would
exclude Reform and Conserva-
tive Jewish converts (conver-
sions not performed according
to halacha or Jewish law) from
automatic Israeli citizenship, a
Federation delegation joined
groups from other large com-
munities Sunday, Dec. 4, to
visit Israel for two days of
intense lobbying in the Israeli
Knesset.
The delegation included Fed-
eration President Alec Engel-
stein. Campaign Chair Irving
Mazer, Past President and

U.S. Economic Aid
To Israel Could Be
Cut In 1990 Budget
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The $1.2 billion in economic
aid Israel receives each year
from the United States may be
in jeopardy in the coming fiscal
year, according to sources on
Capitol Hill.
The $1.8 billion in military
aid Israel receives appears less
vulnerable at this point. The
State Department and the
Pentagon have agreed to rec-
ommend that Israel receive
that amount in the 1990 fiscal
year, U.S. and Israeli sources
said.
But Capitol Hill sources
noted that both components of
Israel's $3 billion annual aid
package, all of which is dis-
bursed in the form of grants
rather than loans, could be cut
at any step in the annual bud-
geting cycle.
President Reagan is due to
submit his 1990 budget to Con-
gress on Jan. 9. George Bush
may elect to submit his own
budget after he is sworn in as

Grossman, Weinstein
Chair Lands Campaign
Irving Mazer, 1989 Jewish
Federation Campaign Chair,
has announced the appoint-
ment of Jerome Grossman and
Bernard Weinstein as Co-
Chairs of the Lands of the
Presidents 1989 Campaign.
The Lands held its Campaign
kickoff meeting on November
29th at the Lands of the Presi-
dents Country Club.
In 1985, Jerome Grossman
began his career with the Jew-
ish Federation of Palm Beach
County as a volunteer for the
Lands affiliate campaign. Last
year he was appointed vice
co-chair at the Lands and this
year he will co-chair the cam-
paign.
Grossman is a retired shoe
manufacturer (Old Maine Trot-
ters) from Bangor, Maine.
Since 1972, he and his wife
have spent most of their time
in Palm Beach County, return-
ing to Maine only for the sum-
mer.
In Bangor, Grossman was
always active in the Jewish
Community Center and Israel
Bonds. Locally he has been a
vice-chair for the Israel Bonds
campaign and maintains an
active interest in the Morse
Geriatric Center. "The Jewish
Federation does a wonderful
job in this community and as

Toping With Transition' Topic Of WD Education Forum II
"As a result of the rapid
population growth in South
Florida, young families and
older retirees are experiencing
more changes than ever
before," said Dr. Raquel Bild-
Libbin, Professor and Dean of
Academic Studies at the Miami
Institute of Psychology. Libbin
explained that over 75 percent
of the people currently in the
community are from some-
place else. Typically, they
move here because of a new
career, better climate, retire-
ment or to join family and
friends who have migrated to
the area.
In the second program in the
Education Series "Jewish
Women: The Challenge of
Change," Dr. Libbin focused
her discussion on "New Begin-
nings: Coping with Transition
. Family, Career or Com-
munity." The forum, spon-
sored by the Women's Division
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County, was held
Wednesday, November 30, at
the Palm Hotel.
To help people cope with
their new surroundings, Lib-
bin made the following sugges-
tions:
Have a positive mental
attitude, don't compare and
live in the present.
Establish a new support
system for you and the mem-
bers of your family make
new friends, join selected
organizations, contact family.
Familiarize yourself with
the new community. Be
friendly and helpful.
Identify current interests
for all family members and
facilitate their involvement in
them.
Hold family discussions,
talk about your family's appre-
hensions and excitement.
Volunteer for an organiza-
tion whose values you share
feel worthwhile.
Libbin added, "Volunteering
in activities of the Jewish Fed-
eration is an excellent way to
build support systems and
become acclimated to the new
community. It can help you
familiarize yourself with
organizations that can benefit
you and your family. It can
also help you meet people with
whom you have much in com-
mon."

YAD Campaign V.P. And
Associate Campaign Chair Announced
Lands Of The
Pres. Kicks Off
1989 Campaip
Michael A. Lampert, presi-
dent of YAD, announced the
appointment of Martin A. List
as 1989 Campaign V.P. of
YAD and David Shapiro as
Assoc. Campaign Chair.
List, a Board Member of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, has been cho-
sen to serve as Campaign Vice
President of the Young Adult
Division for the second conse-
cutive year. In this position,
List will head the YAD Cam-
giign Cabinet, which oversees
ivision activities, including
those of the New Gifts and the
Physicians Outreach Commit-
tees.
The New Gifts Committee
develops a group of campaign
members who will solicit first
time workers. The Physicians
Outreach Committee targets
young doctors to recruit their
participation in the Young
Adult Division. In addition, the
Cabinet helps coordinate the
Business Executives Forum
Directory, which lists several
hundred professionals in the
community.
Since its inception in 1985,
List has been actively involved
in the development of YAD.
Before its creation, there was
no organized way to attract
young people to the Federa-
tion. "YAD gives young people
the opportunity to meet,
create both professional and
personal relationships, formu-
late ideas and discuss national
and international issues," List
explained.
List is active in Jewish con-
cerns throughout the commun-
ity. Currently, he serves on the
Boards of the Jewish Com-
munity Center and Temple
Israel. Last year, he was
appointed to the National
Leadership Men's Cabinet.
David Shapiro, Associate
Campaign Chair of the Young
Adult Division is heavily
involved with the campaighn
this year. His responsibilities
include informing and educat-
Martin A. List
David Shapiro
ing members of the Young
Adult Division on how to
improve campaigning tech-
niques and become better rep-
resentatives of the Federation.
Shapiro, a native of New
York, moved to Palm Beach
County almost three years ago
and is the owner of a local
retail women's store. He is a
member of the Planning and
Allocations Committee of the
Jewish Federation. He also
sits on the Boards of YAD and
the Jewish Community Day
School.
This year YAD will hold a
full-scale campaign event to
reach out to a large number of
young people in the commun-
ity. Several innovative and
exciting programs have been
planned as well as intimate
parlor meetings throughout
the county to attract new
participants.
"Last year we raised over
$225,000 and increased the
number of contributors by 36
percent," said List. "This year
I look forward to continued
success."
Hands Across The Ocean:
A Partnership Of People Caring For People
By ELIZABETH HOMANS
Project Renewal, with all its
ramifications of renewal, re-
novation, rebuilding and redir-
ecting, is a program of PEO-
PLE: people helping people;
sharing a common goal; people
learning to be responsible for
themselves and people build-
ing a stronger furture for the
generations to follow.
Eight years ago, the Palm
Beach Jewish Community
made a commitment to the
people of Hod Hasharon to
the same time, the residents in
the neighborhoods of Giora
and Gil Amal committed them-
selves to begin the task of
improving their lives and
neighborhoods. Together
these partners have worked
diligently to reach their goals.
The result of their efforts
were evidenced during the
recent UJA Jubilee and Palm
Beach County Men's Division
Vanguard Mission visits to
Hod Hasharon. It was easy for
participants to see the fruits of
ing to hear from adults and
seniors about the difference
that has been made through
our partnership with the Flor-
idians. There is a feeling of

Community Refuseniks
The Soviet Jewry Task Force of the Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County voted on December 1st to help
"Save the Second Generation" and adopt two new
community refuseniks. The second generation refuse-
niks are 19-year-old Slavs (Hillel) Uspensky of Moscow,
and 17-year-old Alexei Lein of Leningrad. More infor-

ing exciting opportunities for
Americans to go and visit, see
the country and show their
support."
Deluxe (five star) accommo-
dations throughout; seventeen
meals (including daily break-
fast, Shabbat Dinners and a
Gala Farewell dinner); five full
days of sightseeing and
optional tours on leisure days;
meetings with Israeli leaders;
a visit to a military base; and a
cruise on Lake Kinneret will
be included on the trip. Partici-
pants will also overnight in Tel
Aviv, Tiberias and of course,
Jerusalem.
More than a trip abroad or
just a packaged "tour," this is
an extraordinary opportunity
to journey to the heart of the
Jewish people with friends and
family from your neighbor-
hood, your community, your
country.
"What's really great about
this experience is that we're
reaching out to this entire
community, especially those
who have never been to Israel,
who aren't involved in the
Jewish Federation or United
Jewish Appeal as well as those
who visited Israel maybe five,
ten or fifteen years ago,"
Arnold Lampert, a Federation
lay leader and local business-
man explained. "It's a great
opportunity to see a new and
improved Israel with experi-
enced people from the com-
munity who have been there
many times and know the
country and its people."
The activity filled itinerary
will include plenty of leisure
time and a taste of all aspects
of Israeli society from break-
fast at the Knesset, to visits of
immigrant absorption centers,
Palm Beach County's twinned
Project Renewal neighbor-
hood, Hod Hasharon, youth
aliyah villages and an after-
noon of shopping in the old city
of Jaffa.
"There are people who have
traveled the world extensively
and have never visited Israel,'
Marilyn Lampert, an active
community leader, com-
mented. "I think Israel has
more to offer tourists than any
other country in the world:
history, museums, breathtak-
ing countryside, even shopp-
ing. This trip in particular
offers a great deal of leisure
time for people to discover
what they like best about the
country on their own," she
added.
The Palm Beach/Israel con-
nection is what makes this trip
absolutely unique. It's a rare
opportunity to forge a deep
and personal connection with
our Israeli brothers and sis-
ters, to express our uncondi-
tional support and build a
stronger local community,
with friends and family who
share similar concerns, hopes
and dreams for the Jewish
nation.
There are a limited number
of seats available for the Palm
Beach/Israel Connection and
reservations are taken on a
first come, first serve basis. A
$250 deposit is required to
hold your place on this once in
a life-time opportunity to visit
Israel with friends. Full pay-
ment is due by February 28,
1989.

eration of Palm Beach County,

Arafat's Exclusion
It is now two weeks since Secretary of State
George Shultz said "no" to Yasir Arafat. The
move to deny Arafat a visa to enter the United
States in order to address the United Nation's
General Assembly subsequently has been reaf-
firmed and is "firm and final," according to
the State Department. As if to blunt any
criticism, President Ronald Reagan personally
has endorsed the exclusionary move.
What began in Algiers, the chairman of the
Palestine Liberation Organization chose to
complete at the UN. That is, Arafat would
have taken the stage at the UN and sought
further legitimization as the credible leader of
an accepted nation state in the council of
nations.
Noting that PLO actions and statements
offered only implicit recognition of Israel, the
United States needed explicit recognition of
Israel as well as a denunciation of terrorism.
Neither has been forthcoming.
In the textual statement, the U.S. made
perfectly clear that it based its decision on the
contention that Arafat "knows of, condones
and lends support to" acts of terrorism.
Notwithstanding the host country's obliga-
tions to the UN, the U.S. prohibits entrance to
known terrorists.
The probable outcome of all this, of course,
is that the UN session will be held outside the
U.S. There is a move in progress that such a
session will be held in Geneva.
The State Department allows how the U.S.
is obligated to extend its national courtesies to
those invited to the UN. Indeed, it stated that
the PLO Observer Mission and its members
have been accorded privileges since 1975.
Beyond a general disapproval, the U.S. cited
terrorist actions against Americans as well as
others, specifying the murder by name of
Leon Klinghoffer.
If there was a question of Arafat's culpa-
bility, the U.S. chose unequivocal language:
". he, therefore, is an accessory to such
terrorism."
Using a play on Arafat's earlier statement
that he bore in his 1974 UN visit both "an olive
branch and a freedom fighter's gun," the U.S.
chose to exclude a participant who "can wave
the flag of justice in one hand and brandish the
weapons of terrorism in the other."
While we acknowledge that this move to
exclude the PLO chairman will and already
has had international political reper-
cussions, we concur with the action. It is one
of principle.
As America takes the risk of being isolated
in a stand that is unpopular vis-a-vis Yasir
Arafat, The Jewish Floridian joins lauding a
proud and noble nation that chose principle
over pragmatism.

Real Miracle of Chanukah
By RABBI
BERNARD S. RASKAS
Chanukah, which recalls the
rededication of the ancient
Temple in Jerusalem following
the victory of the Maccabees
over the Syrians, is celebrated
for eight days.
According to the ancient leg-
end, it is because only one
clean jar of oil was found for
the Eternal Light and it was
sufficient for only one day.
But by a miracle, it lasted
eight days. An old Yiddish jest
based upon this explanation
asks, "For such a little bit of
oil, such a big festival?"
The reason that so much
emphasis is placed upon the
Chanukah festival is that it
commemorates the first suc-
cessful revolt in history on
behalf of religious liberty.
The abiding miracle of this
festival as stamped in Jewish
observance reminds us of the
value of religious freedom in
our lives.
The spirit of Chanukah ani-
mates the Magna Carta, and
the Declaration of the Rights
of Man, and there is a parallel
to the Maccabean revolt in the
Declaration of Independence.
For without the willingness
of the early Jews to fight for
their religious rights and the
inspiration of Chanukah, these
great movements on behalf of
human freedom might never
had been born.
Not only Jews, therefore,
but all mankind must be grate-
ful for the abiding miracle of
Chanukah.
During Chanukah in 1960,
the American Jewish Joint
Distribution committee pre-
sented a menorah to the king
and queen of Denmark, in
appreciation for the Danish
king's efforts to save the Jews
of his country from Hitler's
death camps.
At a time when Adolph
Eichmann and his wickedness
were at the center of world
attention, the heroism and
Maccabean love of justice of
the Christian leader of
Denmark were fittingly
recalled in gratitude and rev-
erence.
This is the reason for the
gift. When the Germans
invaded Denmark, they tried
to turn the Danish people
against their Jewish neigh-
bors. They were singularly
unsuccessful.
In 1943, the Nazis decreed
that every Jew had to wear a
Yellow Star of David. When
King Christian X heard this,
he immediately went on the
radio to speak to his country.
"The Jews are a part of the
Danish nation. We have no
'Jewish problem' in our coun-
try because we never had an
inferiority complex in relation
to the Jews. If the Jews are
forced to wear the yellow star
I and my whole family shali
wear it as a badge of honor."
Needless to say, the badge
was never introduced in
Denmark. In fact, when the
Germans did press for depor-
tation for Jews, the Danes
retaliated by scuttling the
Danish fleet; and many Danish
officers and soldiers lost their
lives shielding their Jewish
friends.
This is the spirit of Chanu-
kah that men and women
will voluntarily expose their
lives for what they believe. It
is the inspiring story of self-
sacrifice that lies at the heart
of every great humanitarian
achievement.
Scholars offer many reasons
for the eight-day celebration,
but the story of the miracle
rings true for it symbolizes the
miracle of Jewish survival
through the ages.
On Purim and Tisha B'Av as
well as on Chanukah, it is
important to remember the
miracle of Jewish survival. We
survived it all the Inquisi-
tion, the Crusades, the Holo-
caust.
According to the laws of
logic, history, geography and
sociology, we should not be
here. But we are! We are the
real miracles, and each Jew is
a candle whose light proclaims
that Judaism is alive and well.
Three Soviet citizens a
Pole, a Czech, and a Jew -
were sentenced to death. Each
was granted a last wish.
"I want my ashes scattered
over the grave of Pilsudski,"
said the Pole.
"I want my ashes scattered
over the grave of Magaryk,"
said the Czech.
"I," said the Jew, "want my
ashes scattered over the grave
of Comrade Chairman.''
"But that's impossible," he
was told. "The Comrade
Chairman isn't dead yet."
"Fine," said the Jew. "I can
wait."
We Jews continue to wait.
Jews always outwait and out-
wit their adversaries. That is
the real miracle of Chanukah
Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor:
I have been extremely con-
cerned regarding the contro-
versy over the statement,
Who is a Jew?" and would
like to offer my opinion: A Jew
is a person of compassion, who
accepts the responsibility for
helping others, and who will
not judge unfavorably the
internal politics of our State of
Israel.
The people of Israel need our
help.
We must continue our eco-
nomic aid by the loan of funds
through the purchase of Israel
Bonds.
Hadassah projects: the Hos-
pitals which transcend all
political and religious barriers,
the schools and Youth Vil-
Pf!the rePlacement of Jew-
ish National Fund trees de-
stroyed by arson and sabotage:
to continue our support of
these projects is imperative!
Hadassah leadership has
gone on record as opposing tne
Knesset's involvement in re-
structuring the Law o
Return. Hadassah members
comprise every aspect of JW
ish Life, and we plead with the
friends of Israel to continue
their generosity and suppon-

Defense Imports Doubled in 1987
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel is buying more defense
material and equipment abroad.
Defense imports nearly doubled in 1987, after a 35
percent decline in 1986, according to figures made public
recently.
Overall defense expenditures rose to 20 percent of
Israel's gross national product in 1987, compared to 16
percent in 1986. They include wages and local expenditures
as well as defense imports.
The proportion, however, was lower than the 22 percent
of the GNP consumed by defense expenditures in the
1984-85 period, the new Israel Statistical Abstract for 1988
revealed.

On January 12, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Israel's champion
basketball team, will be in Moscow to play the CSKA, the
championship Red Army sports club.
Alexander Portnov, the senior Soviet official in charge of
overseas tournaments, informed the European basketball
authorities meeting in Munich that his government no
longer objects to Israelis and Soviets playing against each
other, in either country.
Since the Soviets broke diplomatic relations with Israel
in 1967, their respective teams have met, but always in
neutral countries.
The Soviet team will go to Tel Aviv for a March 9
rematch in the Yad Eliahu stadium.
Ofek-1 Keeps Cruising Earth
TEL AVIV (JTA) Ofek-1, the first space satellite
launched by Israel, has already exceeded its one-month life
expectancy.
Its next stop is a re-entry into the earth's atmosphere
and a burnout, but that is not likely before January,
according to scientists who monitor the solar energy-driven
satellite.
Ofek was lifted into orbit Sept. 19 by an Israeli-made
Shavit III rocket. Israel's space research agency attributes
its longevity to the accuracy with which it was placed in
elliptical orbit around the earth.
C JF To Conduct National Census
NEW YORK (JTA) The Council of Jewish Federations
will conduct a 1990 national survey of American Jews, the
first since 1970-71, as part of a worldwide series of national
surveys of Jewish populations.
The purpose of this historic survey, which will coincide
with the bicentennial census of the United States, will be to
assess various components of the Jewish community.
It will include the demographic, social and economic
structure, migration patterns, changes in size, composition
and distribution, as well as patterns and levels of births and
deaths.
Hungarian Group To Israel
TEL AVTV (JTA) A large Hungarian trade delegation
is in Israel to promote commercial ties between the two
countries, which have no diplomatic relations.
The 150-member group includes business leaders and
officials of the Hungarian Finance Ministry and Hungarian
Chamber of Commerce.
The delegation arrived here in two chartered Soviet-
made Tupolov jets owned by Malev, the Hungarian national
airline.
The flight was a preview of the regular air service
scheduled to begin, most likely in April, between Budapest
and Tel Aviv. It will be provided jointly by Malev and El Al,
Israel's national air carrier.

Board Approves C JF Resolution
Rejecting Law Of Return Amendment
The Board of Directors of
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County has unani-
mously approved a resolution
drafted by the Council of Jew-
ish Federations in response to
the proposed amendment to
the Law of Return currrently
being discussed in Israel. (See
resolution at right)
If the amendment is ap-
proved, Jewish converts who
were not converted according
to halacha, or Jewish law, will
be denied Israeli citizenship
granted to all Jews immedi-
ately upon immigration to the
Jewish nation. The resolution
was adopted at the CJF Gen-
eral Assembly in New Orleans
in November.
In addition, the CJF has
launched an intensive cam-
paign to collect signatures
from American Jews on a peti-
tion urging the Knesset not to
amend the Law of Return. The
petitions will be submitted to
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir and Israeli Knesset
members.
The signature drive is being
coordinated by Jewish Federa-
tions nationwide. If you have
not already signed the petition
to Yitzhak Shamir and Israeli
Knesset members and would
like to participate in the peti-
tion drive, contact the Jewish
Federation, 832-2120.
Orthodox Group Urges Shamir
To Stop 'Who Is A Jew' Drive
By ANDREW SILOW CARROLL
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Reform, Conservative and
secular opponents of the pro-
posed "Who Is A Jew" amend-
ment to Israel's Law of Return
gained an ally this week in the
Rabbinical Council of America,
which represents a majority of
PBC
Responds
Continued from Page 1
tor Jeffrey Klein. The goal for
the trip was to contribute to
the mounting pressure that
American Jewish Community
leaders have brought to bear
on Knesset members to with-
draw support for the proposed
amendment. In addition to
Palm Beach County, the dele-
gation included community
leaders from Boston, Phila-
delphia, Detroit, San Fran-
cisco, St. Louis and Denver.
In meetings with Prime Min-
ister Yitzhak Shamir, Shimon
Peres and leaders of the major
Israeli parties including the
religious parties, delegation
members hoped to represent
the American Jewish commun-
ity's deep concern over the
projected change to the Law of
Return. It is felt that a disen-
franchisement of any stream
of Judaism might cause a seri-
ous rift between United States
Jewry and Israel, which would
result in a number of negative
consequences.
In addition to the lobbying
sessions scheduled in the
Israel Knesset, a meeting of
top Federation leaders nation-
wide had been arranged with
Israeli Ambassador Moshe
Arad for Tuesday, Dec. 6, at
the Embassy of Israel in
Washington, D.C. Led by
Erwin Blonder, immediate
past president of the Federa-
tion, leaders from the Palm
Beach County Jewish Federa-
tion flew to Washington to join
the discussions.
The purpose of the meeting
was for a select group of top
Federation leaders to express
the communities' concerns
regarding the "Who Is A Jew"
question. A similar meeting
was organized for the Cana-
dian Federations with their
Israeli Ambassador in Ottawa.
Again, Federation leaders
hoped to emphasize to Ambas-
sador Arad the serious impact
that passage of the proposed
amendment would have on
Diaspora/Israeli relations.
There will be a full story
covering both trips in the next
issue of the Floridian.
the Orthodox congregational
rabbis in the United States.
In a cable sent to Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir, the
RCA said it supports "removal
of this issue from the political
agenda" in order to "help pre-
serve the unity and support of
the American Jewish commun-
ity with and for Israel."
Rabbi Max Schreier, presi-
dent of the RCA, and Rabbi
Binyamin Walfish, executive
vice president, said the laws of
conversion to Judaism, the
central issue of the legislation,
belong "in the hands of the
Chief Rabbinate and not in the
secular Knesset."
In bucking Israel's Orthodox
religious parties, who are
pushing for passage of the
legislation, the RCA has
diverged from two other major
American Orthodox groups,
the Agudath Israel of America
and the Chabad Lubavitch
movement.
The leader of the Brooklyn-
based Chabad Hasidim, Rabbi
Menachem Schneerson, has
been a vigorous proponent of
the "Who is a Jew" legislation,
which would prevent non-
Orthodox converts to Judaism
from being eligible for auto-
matic Israeli citizenship.
Its passage is the price being
demanded by the Othodox par-
ties, led by the Chabad-backed
Agudat Yisrael, for their par-
ticipation in the next Israeli
government.
Agudath Israel in America is
a separate entity from the
Agudat Yisrael party in Israel.
In Israel, moderates within
the National Religious Party,
closely affiliated with the
RCA, recently drew encour-
agement for the RCA state-
ment, and urged their party to
back off from its total support
of the proposed amendment.
But Agudat Yisrael showed
no signs of bending or waver-
ing despite the gathering
storm oi protest from Dias-
pora leaders.
Schreier of the RCA said,
that he attended the General
Assembly of the Council of
Jewish Federations, in New
Orleans, and "experienced a
climate which was national
and deep and widespread, and
not phony."
The RCA statement, he said,
reflects a position first enact-
ment by the organization in
1986.
Schreier said the position
might represent a rift with
Chabad and other Orthodox
movements, "but it expresses
a general concern" about the
need to "still the spirit and
preserve the structure of
American Jewry. "

Who Is A Jew Resolution
The centrality of Israel to all Jews is fundamental to our
very Peoplehood. Therefore, maintaining the broadest
possible unity among Jews in their support of IsraelI is a
matter of the highest P/iprity. With this in mind, CJF,
coordinating the work of UJA, UIA and UIA of Canada,
has been and will continue to be active in pursuing the
position it adopted in 1987 urging Israeli leaders not to act
through the Knesset or political process to legislate any
direct or indirect changes in the Law of Return to define
"Who is a Jew." We call on all political leaders of both
major party groupings in Israel to agree to take this issue
off the political agenda. An emergency leadership task
force is meeting on an action plan to accomplish this goal.
From this General Assembly, a leadership mission will
carry our message directly to Israel. The issue, with its
ideological, moral and communal implications, should not
be decided in the context of political accommodation or to
ensure the maintenance or downfall of a particular govern-
ment. World Jewry should not be divided by a political
approach to the issue of "Who is a Jew."
In Israel, the Jewish Agency represents us and all of
Diaspora Jewry. It has a Covenant with the State of Israel
according to which the Government must consult with the
Jewish Agency on any legislation affecting its functions,
including immigration.
We commend Mendel Kaplan, Chairman of the Board of
Governors of the Jewish Agency, and Simcha Dinitz,
Chairman of the Executive, for their assertions that the
Jewish Agency will not tolerate any unilateral action of the
Knesset which will damage the unity of the Jewish People
and that they will seek to enforce the Covenant.
We urge the Board of Governors of the Jewish Agency
which has the responsibility for distributing our funds in
Israel to use all means at its disposal to promote streng-
thening K'lal Yisrael and to impede all attempts to disunify
the Jewish People.
We the 57th General Assembly of CJF, meeting at a
critical moment concerning this issue, urge the leaders of
Israel not to underestimate the strength of feeling on this
matter. We direct the leadership of CJF to convey to the
political leadership in Israel, in the most vigorous, immedi-
ate and continuing way possible, that they must not risk
dividing the world Jewish community as they seek now to
form a government and thereafter.
Simultaneously, we reaffirm our continued total support
for Israel, for the United Jewish Appeal and Federation
overseas and community campaign, and call on every
Jewish organization and institution in North America to
endorse this principle. Such support and contributions are
for needs of the people of Israel, not any government of the
moment, and those needs have not lessened, they have
increased.

Bargaining on a Free Market System
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
ISRAEL will have to go
through a "very painful period
of (economic) readjustment"
until it shifts to a free market
system, said Daniel Doron.
During a recent interview in
Miami, Doron explained that
Israel has an enemy within
that is just as dangerous as its
Arab enemies outside the Jew-
ish state: what he recently
alluded to in a Forbes maga-
zine article as an inefficient,
statist-oriented and bureau-
cracy-ridden government.
The third-generation, U.S.-
educated Israeli is director of
the Tel Aviv-based Israel Cen-
ter for Social and Economic
Progress, a non-profit think-
tank that Doron claims is non-
partisan apolitical. He refers
to its 40 prominent Israeli
economists, who battle with
the nation's economic plagues,
as putting on "white lab
coats."
Doron's ideas have widely
been expressed in interna-
tional media, including Forbes
Magazine and the Wall Street
Journal. Yet those same pro-
posals are slow to be insti-
tuted.
He insists that Israel's eco-
nomic troubles played a key
role in the past Nov. 1 elec-
tions, perhaps as much if not
more than the Palestinian
issue. That may seem ironic,
because according to Doron,
economics was officially a
"non-issue" in the elections.
Now, he said, it has become a
"central issue" despite the
fact that inflation is rising but
still scaled back considerably.
Doron's own organization,
and his appearance in Miami
show their financial modus
operande. When his institution
was founded four years ago,
simultaneous support groups
of "American friends' were
established in Boston, Chicago

the Lands Campaign Co-Chair
I hope to carry on in their
tradition of steady improve-
ment and gains in raising
funds," Grossman com-
mented.
Bernard Weinstein has been
a lifetime contributor to the
Jewish Federation/UJA Cam-
paign and has recently become
involved as a lay leader. Last
year he was Vice Campaign
Co-Chair with Grossman. This
year, they are serving
together in top leadership posi-
tions as Co-Chairs of the
Lands Campaign.
Weinstein has been a part-
time resident in Palm Beach
County for eight years. Origin-
ally from Philadelphia, PA, he
and his wife now spend half
the year in Atlantic City, N.J.
and half in West Palm Beach.
Weinstein is a retired presi-
dent and chief executive offi-
cer of a women's apparel
chain, sold in 1982. Since then
he has remained heavily
involved in additional business
ventures in New York. In the
last few years, he said, he
finally has the time to devote
to Jewish causes and Israel.
Weinstein has visited Israel 17
times, both for business and
t mring.
"I hope we'll be able to
increase the number of contri-
butors to the Lands Campaign
as well as the amount of contri-
butions this year," Weinstein
said. "It's absolutely neces-
sary during this very critical
time of need in the Middle
East and the Palm Beach com-
munity," he added.
and New York. His ideas and
think tank also have the sup-
port of prominent American
economists including Herbert
Stein, advisor to the U.S.
State Dept. on the Israeli econ-
omy and nobel laureate Prof.
Milton Friedman.
Doron spoke in South Flor-
ida last week to new support
groups that are starting in
Dade, Broward and Palm
Beach Counties.
"Israel doesn't produce
enough to support itself," he
told the Floridian during his
Miami visit, noting that a lot of
Israelis come to America
because they cannot make a
living in Israel.
Israel has a state-regulated
economy, Doron asserted, add-
ing it is an economy which
"punishes initiative and
rewards those who do not pro-
duce. For example, it puts
heavy taxes on those who are
the productive element in
Israel and gives generous ben-
efits to those who do not
work."
Asked if that is not a similar
complaint heard in America,
Doron said: "Take all the (eco-
nomic) problems you have in
the U.S. and compound them
in Israel by the (multiplication)
power of 10 and you have the
Israeli situation.
"For example," Doron said,
Lewis Fogel
"in the United States you
spend one-third of your gross
national product on the public
sector. In Israel, it's 85 per-
cent. If the government uses
most of it, there is little left for
individuals or private citi-
zens."
Israel's economic system has
been labeled socialistic, but
Doron states that it is not.
"It's very high government
intervention, almost as much
as you have in communist
countries. Sweden is a socialist
country and the government
utilizes only 50 percent of the
GNP" Gross National Pro-
duct.
Israel went wrong economi-
cally from the start," Doron
estimated. "Around the turn
of the century socialism was in
vogue and people didn't under-
stand that socialism doesn't
work economically. Fifty years
later, we see the results.'
But more and more people
are becoming aware that
Israel's current system is not

Jewish Folk Art To Be Featured
*
The Historical Museum of
Southern Florida is conducting
research on Jewish traditional
arts in South Florida. The pro-
ject was conceived and is
directed by Dr. Tina Bucuva-
las, folklife curator at the
musuem, who had observed
that while the Jewish people
have retained many religious
and secular traditions, previ-
ous research has only
scratched the surface.
With the help of a grant
from the Florida Arts Council,
the museum has hired Dr. Jan
Rosenberg, a freelance Jewish
folk arts specialist residing in
Palm Beach County.
The goal of the project is to
locate practitioners of Jewish
folk traditions, with an empha-
sis on the material and musical
arts. Yiddish musicians and
singers, cantors, story tellers,
folk dancers, yarmufke mak-
ers, tallit weavers, ketubah
painters, silversmiths, paper
cutters, ritual specialists such
as mohels, scribes, cooks, men-
orah and mezuzah makers, as
well as people who can demon-
strate dreidle games and the
making of the Sukkot hut will
be featured.
As the culmination of her
research, Rosenberg will write
an interpretive essay on Jew-
ish traditional art which will be
published by the Historical
Museum in 1990.
Folk artists identified during
the project will be presented to
the public through a variety of
events: museum presenta-
tions, folk features and school
programs.
The folk arts identified
through this project will be an
integral part of an exhibit,
"Tropical Traditions: The Folk
Life of South Florida," which
will open at the Historical
Museum in February, 1990.
Rosenberg is seeking help in
her efforts to locate Jewish
folk artists in South Florida.

Soviet Judaic Center Closer to Opening
NEW YORK (JTA) Rabbi
Adin Steinsaltz, a Talmudic
scholar from Jerusalem,
arrived in Moscow to negotiate
the final touches of an agree-
ment to open a Judaic Studies
Center in the Soviet capital.
The announcement was
made by the Aleph Society
Inc., which was founded by
Steinsaltz here last spring to
coordinate financial and other
assistance for his activities
around the world.
The Judaic Studies Center,
which will also serve as the
first rabbincal seminary in the
USSR, is currently his major
project. It is expected t be
inaugurated next year.
The agreement in principle
for the Judaic Center was
reached last May with the
Soviet Academy of Sciences.
It provides for an institution,
staffed initially by Western
scholars, to train a new gener-
ation of Soviet Jewish scholars
and rabbis.
Its opening would represent
a dramatic change of policy in
the Soviet Union, where Jew-
ish culture has been discour-
aged since the Bolshevik revo-
lution.
Another unprecedented ges-
ture is the invitation the Acad-
emy of Science has extended
to Steinsaltz, an Israeli citizen,
to deliver a series of public
lectures on religion.
Steinsaltz is in Moscow as
head of a delegation of histori-
ans, manuscript experts and
Quayle Meets
With Presidents
Conference
Vice President-elect Dan
Quayle, meeting with a delega-

idents of Major American Jew-
ish Organizations in Washing-
ton, recognized the PLO's fail-
ure in Algiers to come to terms
with the reality of Israel, said
Morris Abrams, chairman of
the Presidents Conference and
leader of the delegation.
Abrams also said the Indiana
senator regarded any compari-
son of the Palestinian intifada
(uprising) with the civil rights
struggle in the U.S. or the
anti-apartheid movement in
South Africa as "entirely inap-
propriate."

computer specialists from Can-
ada, Denmark and France.
Their host is Evgeny Velikhov,
vice chairman of the Academy
of Sciences.
The agreement also provides
for the rabbi to establish an
organization to work in part-
nership with Soviet institu-
tions to catalogue collections
of ancient manuscripts, rare
books and other materials.
Libraries cooperating in the
project include the U.S.
Library of Congress, the New
York Public Library, the Royal
Danish and Geneva libraries,
and those at YIVO, Cam-

The Mysterious Chanukah Candles
By JUDY CHERNAK
"Chanukah's so early this
year," Lisa thought as she
pulled on her orange sweats,
tugging to ease them over the
flapping hightops of the black
Reeboks. She wouldn't even
have begun thinking about hol-
idays yet if that box of candles
hadn't arrived mysteriously in
the mail.
"Where did they get our
name, anyway?" she mused,
twisting her mouth to the left
as she always did when puz-
zled. "It would be weird if we
were on that yeshiva's mailing
list we sure couldn't have
sent them money when there's
not a whole lot around for
basics. Like clothes. I mean,
Mom knows how I hate and
despise these orange sweats,
nobody wears orange any-
more, unless they're Brooke
Gordon, with that shade of
honey blond hair you can get
away with wearing stars and
squiggles, for heaven's sake."
So Mom couldn't have sent
money to anyone. Much less a
place with a name she could
barely pronounce. And from
Denver, too. She didn't know
there were Jews that far West.
If there were, maybe they still
wore orange. But this was
absolutely the very last time
she was going to show up in
school wearing orange, for
heaven's sake. She'd just have
to find some money somehow
for some decent pants, maybe
a pair of those sleek, shiny
black ones everybody else had.
"Right, they cost a fortune,"
she reminded herself. "And
Chanukah's so e?-ly this year!
I mean, it's great that the
Temple was purified and our
ancestors won their freedom
and the oil lasted eight days
and all, really, but Chanukah
means presents to buy. And I
have about two dollars saved
up."
Now her mouth was really
twisting, she noticed as she
caught her reflection in the
wicker mirror. She'd have to
get on that habit or she'd get
early wrinkles, like Mom's.
Not that Mom could be
expected to look like a Revlon
model after what she'd been
through this year, with the
divorce and all. What a mess
that had been. Mom still hardly
smiled at her and Adam. Prob-
ably worried about money
even more than about being
single again.
Well, at least they had the
box of candles. That was a
start. She'd think of some way
to earn money .. she had to
have presents for Morn and
Dad and Adam, no way she'd
give up on that, even if she had
to wear these yukky sweats a
couple more times.
Heaving a dramatic sigh,
Lisa rearranged her mouth
into a smile. Grabbing her
books and a granola bar, she
shouted, "Bye, Mom, tell
Adam I'll play with him after
school I don't have time for
my orange juice, bye!" and
raced out the door towards the
bus stop.
"Actually, I lied," she admit-
ted to herself, munching on the
stand-in for breakfast. "I just
didn't want to start off
another day with Mom's pre-
coffee face in my brain. She's
got to be worrying about
Chanukah, too. She's got to
come up with eight presents
for Adam and me, for heaven's
sake. And the box of Chanukah
candles won't solve that!"
Lisa swung herself onto the
bus, tossed off the routine "Hi,
how are ya I'm fine!" to
her friends, and then retreated
to a back seat where she could
think.
She was still thinking when
math class started, and not
much algebra filtered through.
Somehow equations didn't
seem very relevant. What she
really needed was a formula to
make x equal $ equal (Chanu-
kah gifts plus black stretch
pants)! Now that would be
relevant!
Suddenly, as the bell rang to
end class, the x factor the
missing link swam into her
brain and shimmered like a
highlighted line in her history
book: the yeshiva's box of
Chanukah candles! She would
turn them into money! She,
Lisa Julie Stern, thirteen awk-
ward years old with plain
brown hair and too many frec-
kles and a totally unremarka-
ble wardrobe, she would top
the ancient alchemists. She
would change colored wax into
gold!
The rest of the day dragged
behind her racing thoughts
like Adam's leftover baby blan-
ket (Honestly, Mom really
should make him give it up,
Adam's five-and-a-half and in
kindergarten already, the kids
will tease him unmercifully if
they ever find out, for
heaven's sake, and it's dirty,
besides!). Finally she was free,
grabbing a front bus seat this
time, promising "Call you
later!" to her best friends,
Debby Blass and Kris Ken-
nedy, fitting her key into the
lock, and lifting the mysterious
box of candles from its outer
wrappings.
This would be her gold. All
she had to do was to decide
how to transform it. Lisa was
sure she could do it. Munching
an apple, she allowed random
pictures to form in her mind's
eye.
Suddenly, she knew. She
would change these ordinary
candles into Abracadabra,
Shazam! Chanukah dolls!
All she needed was some imag-
ination and her mother's yarn
and ribbon scraps. Hardly able
to control her enthusiasm,
Lisa quickly dialed Kris' num-
ber, then Debby's, and told
them she couldn't talk today,
had something of tremendous
importance to take care of,
would explain everything
tomorrow, really, she just had
to go now, and not to worry,
everything was fine, 'bye! See
you tomorrow on the bus!
Silently thanking her mother
for keeping Adam in day care
all afternoon until the office
closed, Lisa opened the box of
Chanukah candles and took
out three: green, pale gold and
red. She'd experiment with
these. She found yarn and
scraps of ribbon to match. For
the faces, she chose fine-tipped
markers. And a scissors, of
course, for trimming the yarn
and ribbon. Frowning a bit in
concentration, she got to
work, transforming her men-
tal images into the real thing.
Would it work? Could she do
it? Could she, Lisa Julie Stern,
really create Chanukah gifts
from these bits of wax?
Two hours and seventeen
carrot sticks later, she looked
up from her littered desk with
a hugh sigh of relief. She was
no longer alone in the house:
she now had six adorable can-
dle dolls to keep her company.
One had gray yarn hair -
she'd give that to Grandma
Sara. Another had auburn
curls and a lace collar defin-
itely for Mom, who loved to
dress up and hadn't done much
of it lately. Adam's was very
special: Lisa had glued a tiny
button on the back of the gol-
den hair, and it looked just like
a kippah. There was a blue
candle with dark brown hair
and a striped tie for Dad
she'd give it to him the second
night, when she and Adam lit
candles at his house. The fifth
doll looked like Judah Macca-
bee: black hair and a tunic top.
Then there was the one with
honey gold hair, just like
Brooke Gordon's, and blue
eyes. Lisa didn't exactly know
why she had made that one;
maybe it was just something
she had to get out of her
system. She had to admit it
was gorgeous. Maybe she'd
keep it herself ...
The key sounded in the front
door. Oh no! Mom and Adam!
She couldn't let them see!
Quickly, Lisa pushed candles,
dolls, scraps and markers
together into a heap and
dropped the orange sweatsuit
jacket on top. She dashed to
the bed and picked up a bottle
of nail polish just as Mom
poked her head in the door and
said, "Lisa honey, hi! I missed
saying goodbye to you this
morning, you ran out so fast.
Did you have a good day? Is
something special happening
you're doing your nails?"
"Nothing, Mom, just a nor-
mal plain old day. I'm taking a
break from homework. Are
you ok! I can take care of
Adam while you get dinner
together."
"That'll be great, dear. He's
been asking for someone to
read his newest library book
again he loves that story
about the dinosaur with the

orange spots on its tail."
"Orange is really in my face
today," thought Lisa with a
small twist of her mouth. But
she was really glad to see
Adam; and the twist turned
into a grin when she remem-
bered the kippahed candle doll
hiding just inches away. She
read the story with unusual
energy, and Adam cuddled
happily between her and his
blanket.
In school the next day, Lisa
had a tough time keeping her
secret from Debby and Kris.
But she invited them to come
over after school and she'd
clear up the mystery.
The girls burst into the
house, heading for Lisa's
room.
"Oh my gosh Lisa, they're
adorable! I just love them!
How did you do it?" breathed
Kris.
"What a fantastic idea! Who
would ever have thought of
making dolls out of Chanukah
candles, of all things?" gasped
Debby.
Both girls wanted to hear
everything, from the first
moment when the box of can-
dles arrived in the mail. And
both said they just had to have
a doll, would Lisa please please
make one, they absolutely
wouldn't take a "no" even if it
meant they had to help her get
today's math done and babysit
with Adam later.
Then Debby and Kris looked
at each other; both of them
looked at Lisa and then back at
each other; and then they both
started talking at the same
moment.
"Lisa, everybody is going to
want one of these dofls when
they see them. Have you con-
sidered offering them for sale?
Wouldn't this be a great way
to raise the money for the
pants you want? Lisa, you can
do it!*'
"I can?" wondered Lisa.
"Yes, you can!" said Kris
and Debby in the same breath.
"Just start with us," Debby
continued. "I want a blue can-
dle with curly brown hair like
yours I always loved curly
hair! and could you do a pink
ribbon, because you know
that's my favorite color?"
Kris chimed in, "And I'd
love a green candle with white
hair like my Mom's we
always tell her prematurely
gray is the best color and a
red ribbon. I can hang it on our
Christmas tree!"
Looking a bit dazed by all
the excitement, Lisa nodded
her head. "Yes," she thought,
"I can do it. I can do exactly
what I said I would. I can solve
that impossible equation with
the x factor: CANDLE
DOLLS equal gifts plus $ plus
new slinky pants!"
The best part was it no lon-
ger mattered that Chanukah
came early this year. Lisa was
ready. She had made candle
dolls for everyone on her list,
had bought the one thing her
heart desired, and even had
money left to send a donation
to the mystery yeshiva in Den-
ver.
As she and Adam and Mom
lit the candles in Grandpa's
shiny brass menorah, she
thought of her wonderful can-
dle dolls, knowing that each of
them had found a warm and
loving home for this holiday
season.
Lisa rubbed her hand along
the sleek, shiny new black
Kants she was wearing to
onor the first candle of Chan-
ukah and smiled a most satis-
fied smile. Even brown hair
and algebra felt good tonight,
thanks To The Mysterious
Chanukah Candles.

working and Doron, noting,
"I'm not a prophet," sug-
gested that, "basically, Israel
will have to go through a very
painful period of readjust-
ment."
Doron's visions are as glori-
ous as his picture of Israel's
economy is gloomy. Citing the
amount of "brain power" in
Israel and saying that Israel
has more Massachusetts Insti-
tute of Technology graduates
employed in research than any
country besides the U.S.,
Doron said, "Israel could be
one of the wealthiest countries
in the world wealthier than
Japan, Switzerland or the U.S.
We can have a UJA in Israel to
help the American poor."
Lewis Fogel, a Miami-born
stockbroker who is the new
Southeastern Region coordin-
ator for the ICSEP, who
accompanied Doran in South
Florida, agreed that it is diffi-
cult for foreign investors to do
business in Israel as well.
"Say an investor comes from
abroad with $26 million in hard
currency which is much
needed in Israel and is will-
ing to take a risk with his
capital. After a year of govern-
ment bureacracy and red tape
(the investor) gives up and
sends his money elsewhere."
Doron says the key to eco-
nomic reform in Israel hinges
on the cold realities hitting
home the wallet and
educating the government and
public about free market idea.
Fogel cites the example of a
worm that grows up in horser-
adish and doesn't realize it's
bitter.
"Nobody says the govern-
ment should give up all con-
trol," Doron said. "The gov-
ernment must be the umpire,
but it musn't kick the ball and
it doesn't have to own all the
teams and franchises."
Doron arrived in the United
States with a group of 15
Israeli media editors and plans
to show them American eco-
nomics in action.

C JF Listens As Jew With AIDS
Tells Of Need For Support
By MARK JOFFE
NEW ORLEANS (JTA) -
"Shalom. My name is Hal
Wakker and I am a person
with AIDS," said the tall, slen-
der man with a knitted yar-
mulke on his head and a quiet
smile on his lips.
A crowd of about 60 rabbis,
social workers and other Jew-
ish communal professionals lis-
tened in attentive silence as
Wakker spoke about his medi-
cal and spiritual battle with
acquired immune deficiency
syndrome.
It began in December 1986,
when Wakker, already suffer-
ing from symptoms then called
AlDS-related complex, began
feeling weaker.
"I felt I didn't have the
energy to light the eighth can-
dle" of the Chanukah men-
orah, he recalled.
A few days later he was
diagnosed with pneumocystis
carinii pneumonia, a telltale
sign of AIDS, and told he
probably had only three days
to live.
But rather than accept the
doctor's prognosis, Wakker
mustered the emotional sup-
port of his lover and his own
internal reservoir of spiritual
sustenance.
"I said the Shema several
times, not as a percursor to
death, but to give me
strength," he said.
Nearly two years later, Wak-
ker is very much alive and
evidently stronger, both physi-
cally and spiritually.
He works with Project
Nechama, an AIDS education
and outreach program funded
by the Jewish federation in
Los Angeles.
Wakker also speaks to Jew-
ish groups about the need to
support PWAs, or people with
AIDS, and to prevent the dis-
ease from spreading.
Wakker spoke here at a
seminar on the Jewish com-
munal response to the AIDS
crisis, one of more than 100
sessions at the 57th General
Assembly of the Council of
Jewish Federations.
Joining him for a panel dis-
cussion were Andy Rose,
AIDS project coordinator at
the Jewish Family and Chil-
dren's Services of San Fran-
cisco; Florence Rabinowitz,
coordinator of the AIDS Vol-
unteer Project at the Jewish
Board of Family and Chil-
dren's Services in New York;
and Jerome Chanes, who coor-
dinates domestic policy at the
National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council in
New York.
Wakker spoke about the
importance of hope and sup-
port from others in combatting
illness.
"Our Jewish history and phi-
losophy teach us that where
there is no hope, there is no
life," he said.
"Social and family contact is
very important in maintaining
the well-being of people with
AIDS," he said. "It is equally
important that Jewish PWAs
not be estranged from the
Jewish community."
Those fighting AIDS, and
particularly gay Jews with the
disease, feel "that the Jewish
community has no interest in
them," Wakker said.
Jewish PWAs "would like to
be invited to someone's house
for Shabbat dinner, or Chanu-
kah or Purim," he said.
Wakker said that despite the
response of some Jewish social
service agencies to the AIDS
crisis, the Jewish community
"is still in a state of denial that
this is a problem affecting
them."
As a result, he said, many
Jews with AIDS have turned
to other religions for aid and
comfort. "They feel their own
tradition has nothing to offer
them," he said.
"When I was little, I was
taught that Jews always took
care of their own," said Wak-
ker. "Now is the time for the
Jewish community to prove it.
Actions speak louder than
words."
Israel's Population
At 4.46 Million;
Arabs Still Growing
Twice As Fast
Is There A Chanukah Tree?
By
YOSEF BEN SHLOMO HAKOHEN
(WZPS) There is an
ancient connection between
Chanukah and the olive tree. It
was olive oil that was used to
light the menorah of the Tem-
ple a tradition that began
after the exodus from Egypt.
For it was in the Sinai desert
that the people were com-
manded to light the menorah
of the Tabernacle with "pure
olive oil of pounded olives."
Centuries later, when the Mac-
cabees entered Jerusalem to
rededicate the Temple, they
found a small jar of pure olive
oil to use in the lighting of the
menorah.
It was this small amount of
oil that burned for eight days
an event that became known
as the miracle of Chanukah.
Zechariah's Vision
Our ancestors saw a link
between the menorah and the
olive tree, as expressed in the
vision of the prophet Zechar-
iah: "I saw a menorah of gold
.. There were two olive trees
beside the menorah, one on
each side of it." For it is not
only the olive oil which gives
forth light, but also the olive
tree itself. Nogah Hareuveni,
director of the Biblical Lands-
cape Reserve, explains in his
book "Nature In Our Biblical
Heritage," that the underside
of the olive leaf is covered with
miniature whitish scales, while
its upper side is dark green.
This contrast of shades pro-
duces a unique silvery sheen
when the wind rustles the
leaves. And when a strong
wind blows through the trees
of an olive grove, one can
notice shafts of silvery light
that seem to jump from tree to
tree.
And so, perhaps it was only
natural that the prophet
Zechariah saw two olive trees
standing either side of the
Menorah. His vision became
part of the passage read by
Jews in synagogues around
the world on the Sabbath of
Chanukah. Yet despite this
vivid image, Jews never devel-
oped a custom of putting olive
trees next to their Chanukah
menorahs. One reason may be
because Jewish tradition
opposes the cutting down of
trees, especially fruit-bearing
trees, for any reason other
than the need for fuel or shel-
ter.
However, while the Jews
were encouraged to respect
trees and plant life, they were
forbidden to deify any aspect
of nature perhaps in order
to discourage the people from
emulating the nature worship
of their pagan neighbors. For
while the prophets saw the
wisdom of God reflected in
nature, they strongly opposed
the worship of nature. And
this could be another reason
wny Jews do not put trees next
to the menorah.
Olive Oil
Therefore, only one part of
the olive tree became part of
the celebration and lore of
Chanukah, and that was the oil
of the olive. The sages noted
that one must first go through
the difficult process of press-
ing the olives and refining the
resulting mixture before one
gets the pure olive oil that will
give light. They saw in the
olive a reminder that there is a
certain light that comes into
the world only after great
effort and hardship. The light
from the leaves of the olive
tree, on the other hand, does
not come as a result of human
effort. It comes and goes with
the wind and has no power to
sustain itself.
And so it became a Chanu-
kah custom for Jewish men
and women to light the men-
orah with the oil from olives.
For in this small fruit of the
Land of Israel lies a great
message the promise of an
enduring light to those who
struggle in the search for truth
and freedom.

TEL AVIV (JTA) The
Arab population in Israel con-
tinues to grow at twice the
rate of the Jewish population,
according to the Statistical
Abstract of Israel for 1988.
Unveiled at a news confer-
ence here recently by the gov-
ernment statistician, Profes-
sor Moshe Sicron, the abstract
estimated the total population
of Israel at the beginning of
November 1988 at 4.464 mil-
lion.
There were 3.650 million
Jews, comprising 81.8 percent;
631,000 Moslems, or 14.1 per-
cent; nearly 150,000 Chris-
tians, at 2.3 percent; and
78,000 Druze, at 1.7 percent.
The Jewish population grew
by only 1.5 percent in 1987,
compared with 3.3 percent for
the Moslem population and 2.8
percent for the Druze. The
Christian population also grew
by 1.5 percent.
The report predicted that
Israel's population would rise
to 5.37 million by the year
2000, and top 6 million by
2010.
There were nearly 100,000
births in Israel in 1987, of
which about 74,000 were Jew-
ish, slightly lower than in the
previous two years.
The Moslem birthrate,
though still significantly
exceeding Jewish births, has
declined dramatically in the
last 15 years.
Births in the Jewish popula-
tion fell to 2.78 per woman
compared with an average of
2.85 between 1983 and 1986.

A feeling of pride in their

learned together the truest
definition for Project Renewal

Israel In Good Hands Says
Capitol Hill Lobbyist
By MARK JOFFE
NEW ORLEANS (JTA) -
Israel can be confident it will
be treated well by the new
American administration and
U.S. Congress elected on Nov.
8, according to one of the most
respected Jewish political lob-
byists on Capitol Hill.
"We expect the 101st Con-
gress to be the most pro-Israel
ever," Thomas Dine told thou-
sands of delegates attending
the General Assembly of the
Council of Jewish Federations
here.
Dine, who directs the Ameri-
can Israel Public Affairs Com-
mittee, spoke at a forum Wed-
nesday night on the implica-
tions of the U.S. and Israeli
elections for Middle East
peace.
He shared the platform with
Moshe Arad, Israel's ambassa-
dor to Washington, who con-
centrated his remarks on the
goals of the next Israeli gov-
ernment and on Israel's
response to the Palestine
National Council's declaration
in Algiers.

Raphael's brow wrinkles as
Ihe ponders the tutor's ques-
tion. Suddenly, his face lights
up and he raises his hand.
After answering correctly, he
flashes a smile at his friend
I seated beside hime.
Self-confidence and motiva-
tion like Raphael's are fos-
tered by Technion's Program
for the Advancement of Tech-
nological Manpower, an after-
school academic outreach pro-
ject in poor communities in
I northern Israel.
The program is only in its
first year in the village of

west of Haifa, but already
applications far exceed the
program's capacity.
Started in 1983, it brings
outstanding Technion students

together to remedy a growing
deterioration in the quality of
high school science and tech-
nology courses.
This academic decline is
most severe in poor areas of
the country where scanty
funds have led to an acute
shortage of teachers and
equipment. Even the brightest
students in these communities
are behind the educational
norms for the country.
"Four years ago we realized
that there was a significant
decrease in the number of stu-
dents entering Technion from
poor regions, mainly from fam-
ilies of Sephardic and Druze
origin," says Professor Gad
Eilam, Dean of Students and
head of the program.
"We felt we had a responsi-
bility to reverse this tragic loss
of potential by bringing these
students up to a level where
they could compete with their
more affluent peers and pass
the university's demanding
entrance examination."
The project was launched at
a high school in Kiryat Ata, an
industrial town ten miles
northeast of Haifa. Ninety
eight Technion students were
selected to tutor 260 students
in mathematics and physics.
It was received with such
enthusiasm by students, teach-
ers and parents that it was
expanded the following year.
Today 160 tutors teach 600
Egypt to Aid
Arab States?
TEL AVIV (INB) If war
I breaks out between Israel and
an Arab state, Egypt will side
with the Arabs, says Egypt's
former Minister of Defense,
I Kama] Hassan Ali.
"Egypt will come to the aid
lof any Arab state that is
attacked by Israel and
requests our assistance," Ali
vowed in an interview with the
I Kuwaiti newspaper Al Anba,
"Egypt did not agree to sign
a peace treaty with Israel in
order to allow aggression
against the Arab states," Ali
said, "the Egypt-Israel peace
treaty does not override the
existing treaties that Egypt
has with other Arab coun-
tries." Ali was apparently
making a reference to the
Arab Mutual Defense Pact,
which obliges each Arab state
to assist the others in the
event of war with Israel.
students from nine institutions
in math, physics, computer sci-

understanding of science and
technology.
Each tutor works with three
to six students in a three-hour

Technion tutors are selected
among outstanding students in

Arad To Speak At Bonds Reception
Moshe Arad, Israel's Ambas-
sador to the United States will
be the special guest speaker at
a reception honoring H. Loy
Anderson, Thursday, Decem-
ber 15th, at the Breakers,
Palm Beach.
Ambassador Arad, who has
had a distinguished career in
government service, joined the
Israel Ministry for Foreign
Affairs as Principal Assistant
to the Director of the Depart-
ment of International Corpora-
tion in 1962. He was appointed
to the Ministry of Justice as
spokesman for the Ministry
and Director of the Minister's
Office in 1964. He later
assumed the post of Press
Counselor at the Embassy of
Israel in London and then was
named to the Consulate Gen-
eral of Israel in New York as
the Deputy Consul general in
charge of Political Affairs.
Arad served in the IDF
(Israel Defense Forces) from
1953 to 1956, attaining the
rank of Captain. He saw active
duty in the Sinai Campaign
and the Six Day War in 1967.
One of Israel's brilliant States-
man and Diplomats, Ambassa-
dor Arad is familiar with every
facet of his country's needs
and developments and is a
very dynamic and informative
speaker.
Since the Israel Bond Organ-
ization was founded in 1951,
total sales have passed the $9
billion mark. These loans have
helped fund Israel's roads, rail-
ways, and power stations and
have helped develop other
aspects of Israel's Economy
including its National Water
Carrier, ports, refineries,
industrial parks, and science-
based industries.

Hit With Anti-Semitic Act
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) On the
morning following a vigil
marking the 50th anniversary
of Kristallnacht, anti-Semitic
slogans were discovered
spray-painted on the inside
walls of the Jewish Student
Union offices at the State
University of New York in
Binghamton.
Subsequently, two students
instituted proceedings against
an associate professor for his
"unprofessional" reaction in
class to the anti-Semitic act.
On Thursday morning, Nov.
10, faculty adviser Shalom
Shoer found three large anti-
Semitic spray-paintings,
including one on a wall of the
center's sanctuary which read
"Kill Kikes." It was embla-
zoned with a swastika.
A mural paying homage to
Israel was defaced by graffiti
reading "Zionazi Racists," and
a third wall contained a swas-
tika painted over a Star of
David.
According to reports in The
(Broome County) Reporter,
Sid Thomas, an associate pro-
fessor of philosophy of reli-
gion, raised a tirade in class
the day following the anti-
Semitic vandalism.
Thomas allegedly blamed the
Jews for having helped elect
Bush, for always lamenting
the Holocaust and for having
betrayed the United States by
"colonizing Israel under Mena-
chem Begin."
The Reporter quoted a stu-
dent, Jeff Weinstein, who said
Thomas used a four-word
expletive to curse the Jews for
commemorating the Holo-

H. Loy Anderson
Anderson Honored
With Peace Medal
The Banking Industry Divi-
sion of the State of Israel
Bonds is pleased to announce
that they will present Israel's
Peace Medal to H. Loy Ander-
son at a Cocktail Reception at
the Breakers, Palm Beach,
Thursday, December 15th.
Special guest speaker will be
the distinguished Ambassador
Moshe Arad, Israel's Ambas-
sador to U.S.
In 1985, Mr. Anderson was
presented the State of Israel's
Gates of Jerusalem Award.
The award was presented to
Anderson at the Knesset,
Israel's Parliament, by Adiel
Amorai, Israel's then Deputy
Minister of Finance. As chair-
man of the Bankers Division of
Israel Bonds in Palm Beach,
Anderson was a forerunner in
furthering the cause of the
State of Israel through the
purchase of Israel Bonds.

caust.
Weinstein quoted Thomas as
saying he could condone the
vandalism because the Jews
had "continually ripped off
Palestinian literature from the
door of a Palestinian professor
at the school."
Jewish Student Union Presi-
dent James Oppenheim told
the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, "There have been
anti-Semitic incidents on the
campus before, but nothing of
this magnitude."
Oppenheim said his dormi-
tory door was defaced by a
swastika at an earlier time and
a poster of Israel had "Israel"
crossed out.
In Albany, Michael Wino-
grad, New York state regional
director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, said, "There has been a
history of pro- and anti-Israel
students tearing down or
defacing one another's posters
and leaflets at SUNY Bing-
hamton."
Oppenheim presented univ-
ersity officials with demands
from the Jewish Student
Union relating to the physical
security of the group's pre-
mises, and for response to a
NEW ORLEANS The
Florida Association of Jewish
Federations named Senator
Bob Graham the "1988 Legis-
lator of the Year," praisingliis
work for Israel and Soviet
Jewry.
The award was presented by
Mike Brodie, executive vice
president of the Greater Miami
Jewish Federation, at the 57th
annual general assembly of the
Council of Jewish Federations
meeting in New Orleans.
More than 200 Florida dele-
gates participated in the
national conference.
In presenting the award,
Brodie recalled:
Graham's efforts for
human rights in the Soviet
Union. Graham was instru-
mental in the 1988 re-
unification of Dr. Galina Vile-
shina and her husband Pyatras
Pakenas after an eight-year
separation.
Bob and Adele Graham tra-
veled to the Soviet Union in
April, appealing for an exit
visa for Dr. Vileshina's hus-
band. The Grahams partici-
pated in Passover seder at the
Leningrad home of refuseniks
Alik and Galina Zelichonok.
Graham's commitment to
Israel's security. Graham vis-
ited Israel with the Greater
Miami Jewish Federation in
1985, and worked to
strengthen trade, education
and cultural ties between
Israel and Florida.
Graham's support for the
poor, elderly and abused. Bro-
die said Graham launched
Florida's Community Care for
the Elderly program, which is
a partner with Jewish Federa-
tions.
In accepting the award, Gra-
ham pledged to continue to
fight tor Israel and for human
rights in the Soviet Union.
Graham said he planned to
contact U.S. Attorney General
Dick Thornburgh to minimize
red tape for emigrating Soviet
Jews.
Graham served in the Flor-
ida House and Senate, two
terms as governor and was
elected to the United States
Senate in 1986.
U.S. Forest Service Helps JNF Combat Wildfires
By YITZHAK RABI
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Jewish National Fund of
America and the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture Forest
Service have been working
closely on all aspects of fire
management and forest fire
prevention in Israel.
First established in the sum-
mer of 1987, the cooperation
between the two agencies
intensified this past summer
following Israel's fire season.
More than 39,500 acres of
Israeli forests and pasture
lands were lost to wildfire in
Israel since the beginning of
the 1988 fire season in April.
The estimated loss in dollars
is a staggering $40 million,
with more than 1 million trees
destroyed in 1,107 fires.
Relief finally came with the
first rain of the season in late
October.
"The rain brought to an end
the remaining forest fires in
Israel," said Michael Aschen-
brand, a JNF executive who is
serving as a liaison with the
Fire and Aviation Manage-
ment of the USDA Forest Ser-
vice.
According to Stuart Pas-
kow, JNF's director of commu-
nications and information, 70
percent of these fires were
arson, committed by Palestini-
ans during the uprising in the
West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
Other fires are caused by
negligence, careless campers
and army maneuvers.
Paskow and Aschenbrand, in
an interview with the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, praised
the response of the U.S. For-
est Service in meeting the
challenge of forest fires in
Israel.
"The response of the U.S.
government has been magnifi-
cent," Paskow said. He noted
that the JNF was provided
with "the experience, know-
ledge and expertise" of the
United States in fighting and
containing wildfire.
A team of U.S. Forest Ser-
vice experts went to Israel for
the first time in December
1987 to survey the damage and
determine fire management
techniques applicable to Israel.
Aschenbrand said that the
recommendations of the U.S.
team, which were "just in
time" in view of the unprece-
dented scope of the wildfire in
Israel, are under consideration
for implementation by the
JNF.
Paskow and Aschenbrand
said that the response within
the American Jewish commun-
ity to the forest fire crisis in
Israel was "very positive."
According to Paskow, more
than $1 million was pledged in
a special JNF campaign in
American synagogues during
the High Holidays, for the
planting of new trees in Israel
to replace the trees that were
burnt down.
letter by Professor Thomas
published Sept. 15 in "Pipe
Dream," the school's newspa-
per.
The student paper has previ-
ously published anti-Christian
letters by Thomas, employing
profanities. He also al egedly
blasted so-called Jewish influ-
ence in the State Department
in an internal memo to the
philosophy department.
University President Clif-
ford Clark, who was a concen-
tration camp liberator 43 years
ago, forwarded the complaint
about Thomas to a standing
committee on professional eth-
ics.
SUNY Binghamton's acting
director of university commu-
nications, Lois Peters, said
three investigators have been
posted to the vandalism case
and university law enforce-
ment was working with the
state police on the matter.
Winograd said ADL was coop-
erating with the investigation.
Morse Geriatric Gala Committee Named
Committee workers for the Joseph L. Morse Geriatric Center's Fourth Annual Gala were
applauded for "putting together the best Gala dinner dance and drawing to date," by Gala
Co-chairwomen, Flo Stuart and Marilyn Zelnick. The Gala, scheduled for December 18, at The
Breakers, will be highlighted by a drawing for a twoweek Mediterranean cruise, a nine-day
transAtlantic cruise to Lisbon, and dinners for four at five Palm Beach restaurants. Committee
members are, standing left to right: Jackie Eder, Gertrude Berman, Eleanor Fleischman, Sylvia
Berman (President of the Morse Auxiliary), Marilyn Zelnick (Gala Co-chairwoman) and Esther
Rapoport. Seated left to right: Lenore Black, Honey Plisskin, Naomi Jacobson, Dorothy Segel, Flo
Stuart (Co-chairwoman) and Joyce Bloch. For information about the Gala and drawing, call
Carole Farrington at the Center, 471-5111.
U.N. Resolution
Campaign
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Women's League for Conser-
vative Judaism pledged to con-
duct an educational campaign
to repeal the decade-old "Zion-
ism Is Racism" U.N. resolu-
tion, and has won the support
of Mayor Andrew Young of
Atlanta, who called the clause
a tool for "racists and radical
forces."
The league, at its recent
70th anniversary convention,
vowed to pressure the U.S.
government to continue fight-
ing for a change in the U.N.
statement and to reach out to
political leaders in other coun-
tries to enlist their assistance
in this effort.
"This dreadful document has
been used to slander Jews,
Judaism and Israel by the
hate-mongers of the world,"
said Frances Unger, Women's
League U.N. chairperson.
"We must mobilize the
moral forces of the world to
undo this unjust action by
nations whose main interest
was to attack the State of
Israel," Unger said.

Israel In Good Hands

elect George Bush pledged
during his election campaign
that he would "build upon the
pro-Israel legacy" of tne Rea-
gan administration.
"We look forward to work-
ing with the Bush administra-
tion," he said.
The AIPAC official was cau-
tious in his appraisal of Bush's
selection of former Treasury
Secretary James Baker to be
secretary of state.
He said that while Baker had
supported the 1981 sale of
AWACS surveillance planes to
Saudi Arabia, the former trea-
sury secretary also had
pressed to retain current
levels of foreign aid to Israel,
at a time of fiscal austerity and
deep national concern over the
budget deficit.
On the subject of the PNC
declaration in Algiers, Ambas-
sador Arad said he was grati-
fied that the U.S. administra-
tion had viewed it with skepti-
cism.
He expressed his govern-
ment's view that the declara-
tion is little more than a ploy
"aimed at driving a wedge
between Israel and the United
States."
Arad said the PNC's call for
self-determination is "a euphe-
mism for the establishment of
a Palestinian state."
Noting that the Palestinian
body had linked its acceptance
of a U.N. resolution recogniz-
ing Israel to all other U.N.
resolutions, the ambassador
said, "One cannot expect
Israel to negotiate" with the
Palestinians when one of those
resolutions equates Zionism
with racism.

Aid To Israel Could Be
Cut In 1990 Budget
Continued from Page 1
fiscal year begins, to act on the
White House budget by appro-
priating funds.
In computing Israel's eco-
nomic aid for 1990, U.S. offi-
cials, including Deputy Secret-
ary of State John Whitehead,
are suggesting that Israel's
savings under the December
1987 foreign debt-financing
law be taken into account,
sources said.
Under that law, Israel is
expected to save an estimated
$2 billion over 20 years by
converting high-interest gov-
ernment loans into lower-
interest private loans. It saved
about $100 million over the
past year, an Israeli source
said.
Israel currently owes $10
billion to the United States
from loans received during
various Arab-Israeli wars and
in annual aid packages before
they were converted to grants
in 1984.
Most Favorable
Package Ever
In recent years, Israel's
annual debt payments to the
United States have generally
approached the level of eco-
nomic aid it received from the
United States.
In fiscal year 1990, however,
Israel would pay less in debt
obligations than it would
receive in economic aid, if cur-
rent assistance levels were to
continue, according to a Capi-
tol Hill source.
The $3 billion that Israel
received in fiscal years 1988
and 1989 were its most favora-
ble packages ever, constituting
close to 10 percent of Israel's
national budget.
Increases are considered
unattainable, since under the
Gramm-Rudman-Hol lings
deficit reduction law, Con-
gress and the executive branch
must cut $35 billion from the
anticipated 1990 U.S. budget
deficit of $135 billion.
It is not clear whether Presi-
dent-elect Bush will submit his
own budget. Like Reagan,
Bush does not support tax
increases, although there has
been talk of "revenue enhance-
ment" measures.
The agreement on military
aid was reached in the U.S.-
Israeli Joint Security Assis-
tance Planning Group. In a
concurring agreement, Israeli
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin agreed not to seek more
than $1.8 billion in military aid
for 1990, sources said.
But U.S. and Israeli officials
said the Reagan administra-
tion is considering a 2 percent
cut in military aid for the
current 1989 fiscal year, which
could cost Israel $36 million.
The money would be reap-
propriated to countries whose
military aid was cut dramati-
cally in recent years, including
some that allow U.S. military
bases on their territory.
The administration would
not need congressional
approval to make such a cut.
Possible Cut For 1989
Frank Carlucci, U.S. Secret-
ary of Defense, informed
Rabin in Israel last month
about the possible cut. The
Israeli defense minister
reportedly replied that he
"would not fight it."

Kansas City Jewish Chronicle
OVERLAND PARK, Kan.
(JTA) Rabbi Meir Kahane
was fined $10,000 last month
for assaulting a Palestinian
activist who heckled him dur-
ing a speech Nov. 18, 1986, at
the Doubletree Hotel in Over-
land Park.
Neither Kahane nor a repre-
sentative in his behalf
appeared at the hearing, held
Monday, Oct. 17, in Johnson
County District Court before
Judge Janette Sheldon.
During the brief court hear-
ing, Kahane was found guilty
of one count of assaulting
Mousa Shukair by striking him
with his fist.
But Shukair's attorney, Ste-
ven Zieber, said there is doubt
about Shukair's ability to col-
lect. Shukair, a 43-year-old
Kansas City resident, is a
member of the Palestine
Human Rights Coalition.
The Brooklyn-born Kahane,
56, was a member of the previ-
ous Israeli Knesset and foun-
der of the Kach political party
there. He gained fame as foun-
der of the Jewish Defense
League in New York in the
1960s, before immigrating to
Israel.
According to testimony, the
incident began as Kahane was
speaking at the local hotel
when Rita Shukair, Mousa's
wife, shouted at him.
"During the speech, he told
the audience that Israel gave
the Palestinians land and
homes and inside toilets," said
Mousa Shukair. "My wife
stood up and said, 'You took
their lands away from them.'
He told her to shut up and
became disturbed."
Shukair testified that he was
holding a sign saying "Peace
for Jerusalem" during the
speech, and that he shouted
back at Kahane.
After the shouting began,
Shukair said, Kahane ran
down from the podium to
where he and his wife were
standing in the back of the
auditorium.
Shukair said that knowing
Rabbi Kahane's reputation
"for terror and killing Pales-
tinians on the land .. When
he run to me, I fear for my life.
I felt I had to defend myself."
During the scuffle between
the men, Shukair said, Kahane
hit him with a closed fist and
spat on his wife three times.
In a written response to an
interrogatory letter from
Zieber, Kahane claimed Shu-
kair struck him first.
Kahane had filed a counter-
claim for assault and battery,
asking for damages in excess
of $10,000.
But that case was dismissed
when the rabbi failed to appear
in court.
"I was scared for my life,
even after it happened," Shu-
kair said. He testified that out
of fear, he bought a gun and
carried it with him for a time
after the incident.
During his questioning,
attorney Zieber recounted the
history of Kahane's JDL and
Kach involvements, listing a
number of bombings and other
violent acts linked to the
groups.
He offered to show a video-
tape of the Doubletree incident
that was recorded by a
WDAF-TV news camera.
Judge Sheldon ruled that
based upon the evidence that
Kahane "intended to do bodily
harm," Shukair was entitled to
damages of $10,000 on one
count of assault.
Zieber said that collecting on
Shukair's judgement against
Kahane "seems to be the ques-
tion of the hour."
"If Rabbi Kahane owns
property in New York, cer-
tainly this judgment can be
registered in the New York
courts and levied upon him,"
he said.
"In international law, there
is a question of whether a U.S.
state court judgment can be
registered and enforced in
Israeli courts. We have not
researched that yet."

Quayle expressed particular
concern about the danager of
chemical warfare introduced
into the Middle East during
the Iran-Iraq war and said it
carried a threat for interna-
tional conflicts everywhere,
Abrams said.
Quayle, who told the delega-
tion he accepted their invita-
tion to meet with the full Presi-
dents Conference shortly after
he takes the oath of office, also
expressed concern about the
fragility of Israel's economy.
Abrams said Quayle also
stated his commitment to the
U.S.-Israeli strategic alliance,
his support of U.S. efforts to
reverse a UN resolution equat-
ing Zionism with racism, and
expressed hopes of emulating
President-Elect George Bush's
role in American efforts to
rescue Ethiopian Jews.
Quayle, stating that he
would look into reports of a
shortage of U.S. visas for
Soviet refugees, simply said
the Bush-Quayle administra-
tion would "pull no surprises"
and continue to consult with
the Jewish community on
issues such as requests by
Saudi Arabia and Jordan for
the sales of American arms.
Aid To Israel
Continued from Page 18
bers of the congressional
appropriations subcommittees
with jurisdiction over foreign
aid reportedly are urging the
administration to scrap the
idea. They are Sens. Daniel
Inouye (D-Hawaii) and Robert
Kasten (R-Wis.), and Rep.
David Obey (D-Wis).
"If it is blocked, it will be
because of them," the source
said. "If it goes through, it will
be because Rabin gave (the
administration) a green light."
Yosef Gal, the Israel
Embassy spokesman, said he
did not know what Rabin had
told Carlucci, but added that
"we believe and hope" that the
2 percent cut will not take
place.
As for fiscal year 1990, Gal
said he was "pretty confident"
that the current level of U.S.
aid will be maintained.
Morris Amitay, a pro-Israel
lobbyist and former executive
director of the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee, said
there is "definite cause" to be
concerned that foreign aid to
Israel will be reduced in the
coming fiscal year.
