Sen. John Tower:
Defense Appointment Solid on Israel
Former Sen. John Tower
(R-Texas) is expected to work
to increase the strategic coop-
eration between Israel and the
United States while support-
ing continued arms sales to
Arab countries, if the Senate
confirms him as the new
secretary of defense.
Tower, who was named to
head the Pentagon by Presi-
dent-elect George Bush had a
record of support for Israel
and Soviet Jewry during his 24
years in the Senate.

Even before Bush's election

the announcement, expected

defense contractors and the

Tower, who was chairman of
the Senate Armed Serices
Committee during President
Reagan's first term, when
Republicans controlled the
Senate, has visited Israel eight
times and made five trips to
other Middle East countries.
He was a strong supporter of
the development of strategic
cooperation during the Reagan
administration, in the belief
that Israel is the major ally in
preventing Soviet influence in
the Middle East.
Tower was considered
influential in the adoption of
the strong plank in support of
Israel at the Republican
National Convention in New
Orleans last August, according
to pro-Israel activists.
He supports foreign aid in
general and aid to Israel in
particular. He also was a
strong supporter of the 1978
Camp David accords, which
led to the Israeli-Egyptian
peace treaty.
Tower was one of 76 senat-
ors who wrote President Ger-
ald Ford a letter in 1974
objecting to his "reassess-
ment," which held up arms
sales to Israel. He was also
critical of the Carter adminis-
tration in 1980 for the U.S.
vote in favor of a UN Security
Council condemning Israel's
settlement policy. President
Jimmy Carter later apologized
for the U.S. vote.

Security of the American Jew
career professional in the field
of monitoring anti-Semitic
developments is convinced
that Jewish security is not at
risk in modern America.
Jerome Chanes suggested
there may be "a considerable
quotient of naivete in the wor-
ries of American Jews about
such incidents."
Chanes, associate director
for domestic concerns of the
National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council,
offered an in-depth analysis on
"Anti-Semitism in the U.S.:
An Update," in the current
issue of Congress Monthly, the
publication of the American
Jewish Congress, a NJCRAC
affiliate. NJCRAC is an
umbrella agency for 11
national community relations
groups and 113 local commun-
ity councils.
Chanes elaborated on his
analysis in a telephone inter-
view with the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency.
Despite his comment about
"naivete," he stressed to JTA
his strong belief that "the
grass roots" of American
Jewry is reacting to "very real
He said those Jews "are
constantly telling us profes-
sionals important things, and
my view is that we profession-
als should be listening to them
very carefully, as we always
try to do."
But with that axiom stated
for the professionals, he said
he would reiterate his belief
that "the fundamental secur-
ity of American Jews, and of
other minority groups,
remains strong in this
Chanes said that "instances
of anti-Semitism and Jewish
security can be viewed as con-
centric circles and thus inti-
mately related."
Nevertheless, he added, it
was vital to make a distinction
between Jewish security and
the occurrence of a number of
anti-Semitic incidents which
might be perceived as a threat
to that security.
For very real reasons, he
declared, Jewish historical
experiences often lead to very
strong reactions by Jews to
such incidents.
But at the same time, "there
is evidence from a range of
data on different criteria
which we use to measure the
seriousness of a given anti-
Semitic act," that Jewish
security remains strong in
The bulk of his Congress
Monthly analysis concerned
hostile developments he felt
Jews should be properly con-
cerned about.
Chanes listed the Aryan
Nations and The Order, two
white-supremicist groups, bro-
ken up by federal prosecution.
He reported that the number
of anti-Semitic incidents had
increased slightly in the
United States during the past
two years, and that political
anti-Semitism "occasionally
raised its abhorrent head."

Come Aboard A Mini-Mission
Rena Blumberg, a distin-
guished broadcaster, author,
lecturer and civic activist, will
be the featured guest speaker
at the "Lion Connection," a
reception on behalf of Lion of
Judah recipients, at the home
of Mrs. Miles Fiterman in
Palm Beach, Wednesday, Jan.
25, at 1:30 p.m.
Having just returned from a
trip to Israel in August, Mrs.
Blumberg plans to speak on
the current situation there
from the eyes of a radio broad-
caster. She also hopes to
convey to the audience how
"phenomenal" they are for the
unwavering commitment they
have made to the Jewish peo-
ple through their gifts.
"These women are obviously
not sunshine supporters of
Israel," Mrs. Blumberg
described in a recent phone
interview. "They are here for
the long haul and should be
highly praised for that."
Born and raised in Cleve-
land, Ohio, Mrs. Blumberg has
been the Community Relations
Director and Radio Inter-
viewer on WWWE/AM-
WDOK/FM Radio there since
1972. She has also hosted a
variety of radio and television
programs on additional net-
works, authored a book en-

brations Living Through

the Board of Directors for
REPCO Electronics, Inc., a
consultant for a chain of news-
papers, and a book reviewer,
teacher and featured speaker
at local, state, and national
meetings and conventions.
And that's not all.
Her list of honors, media
appearances, and service posi-
tions covers a diverse array of
subjects from Jewish causes to
cancer therapy to public rela-
"Everything I do is some-
how connected," she
explained. "There is nothing
inconsistent about my involve-
ments and I do it all as a Jew."
The daughter of Ezra
Shapiro, a past World Chair of
Rena Blumberg
Keren Hayesod, and the sister
of Daniel Shapiro, the immedi-
ate past president of the New
York City Jewish Federation
before it merged with the
Jews In America
UJA, Mrs. Blumberg chaired
the Women's Division in the
Cleveland Federation in 1971
and 1972. Currently she sits on
the Board of Trustees of the
Cleveland Federation.
Mrs. Blumberg's bout with
cancer, which she cautiously
reports is in remission, has
completely changed her atti-
tude toward life and infused
her with an energy that is
contagious just from speaking
with ner. She visits cancer
patients every day, adults and
children, to try to lift their
spirits and minds through a
variety of interesting means,

"societal constraints that are
inherent in American society,
that derive from a history and
tradition of constitutional pro-
tections and that inform and
foster voluntarism, remain
strong in this country,."
He declared that while his-
tory "teaches us there is nei-
ther reason or place for com-
placency, this fact, reinforced
by the patterns of recent
years, presages well for the
rights of individuals and
groups in our society."
"Come Aboard" is the motto
that beckons community resi-
dents to participate in "mini-
missions" sponsored by the
Jewish Federation. The pur-
pose of a mini-mission is to
familiarize participants with
the local agencies and show
them where their campaign
contributions are going.
In December, the Boynton
Beach office of the Jewish
Federation sponsored three
missions, reported Marilyn
Lampert, Mini-Mission Chair
and tour guide.
Mission participants visited
the four Federation agencies:
The Jewish Family & Chil-
dren's Service, the Jewish
Community Center, the Jew-
ish Community Day School
and the Joseph L. Morse Geri-
atric Center.
Included in a full-day of
activities, participants were
treated to a concert by the Day
School kindergarten class
orchestra and a visit to the
school's computer program;
they enjoyed lunch at the JCC
Senior Center, visited with
residents at the Morse Geria-
tric Center and received a per-
sonal briefing by Neil New-
stein, JF&CS Executive Direc-
tor, on the JF&CS' special
programs for the elderly.
One mini-mission partici-
pant, Larry Prigozen, com-
mented, "The mini-mission
gave us a great overview of
the work of the agencies. I was
especially impressed by the
small children at the Day
School who could speak fluent
Hebrew and the enjoyment in
life the Morse residents
seemed to share."

Reaction To The Inevitable
Would that we were wrong.
For 13 years now, the United States has
stood firm in a principled posture neither to
acknowledge, deal nor negotiate with the
Palestine Liberation Organization. Former
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and
later President Reagan laid the foundation
for any potential dialogue by demanding a
troika of prerequisites: that the PLO explicitly
recognize the State of Israel; that the PLO
renounce rather than simply denounce
terrorism in all its forms; and that the PLO
recognize UN Resolutions 242 and 338 as the
bases for a peace settlement.
Finally, a catch-22 scenario. In spite of the
U.S. insistence that PLO Chairman Yasir
Arafat was too much of a terrorist to be
eligible for a visa for entry purposes, Secret-
ary of State George Shultz was forced to open
talks with the PLO because its recalcitrant
titular head finally uttered the requisite
The open sesame salvo may indeed be a
Pandora's box instead.
Like the mythical figure whose action
released into the world untold ills, the verbal
transaction of this week past will surely have
repercussions rippling on shores far from
landlocked Switzerland.
The first and foremost, from this paper's
perspective, is that Israel should be left
even by perception in a singularly lonely
and isolated political locale. While the United
States has reiterated time and again that its
overture was one of contact rather than
substantive negotiations, it appears on the
world screen that Israel is the last player to
make its entrance.
To add to the isolation, Israel is now being
portrayed as intransigent when in fact its
position is one of self-protection.
In an interview last week with The Jewish
Floridian, Meir Rosenne, former ambassador
from Israel to the United States, suggested
that instead of a three-prong test for the PLO,
as dictated by the U.S., Israel has its own
two-part litmus test to measure PLO sincer-
According to Rosenne, Israel needs to see a
change in the PLO covenant which pres-
ently calls for the destruction of a Zionist
presence rather than a vocal recognition.
And in lieu of a verbal renouncement of
terrorism, Israel demands a cessation of the
violence in the administered terrorities and
Now, in a clever ploy of diminished expecta-
tions, Arab League spokesmen and other
apologists for the PLO are excusing before
the fact terrorist actions against Zionist
targets. By explaining that Arafat cannot
control radicals within the umbrella organiza-
tion, the chairman may not be held responsible
for any such behavior that does not conform to
the newly revised international persona for
the PLO.
Consequently, Arafat has nothing to lose
according to this thesis. He won't be damned if
he does or doesn't stop the terrorist activities
of his Palestinian cohorts.
That, of course, is not what the United
States is demanding. Ronald Reagan used
language exquisite in its strength: the
renouncement of terrorism must be "perva-
sive and permanent" for the U.S. not to pull
out of these fledgling contacts. We support
that stance, which simply put is that the PLO
must match its words with deeds.
Still to be determined is whether the inti-
fada described by one Arab League as
"ennobling" the cause of Palestinian self-
determination will cease. Still to be decided
is how Arafat will be dealt with by radical
forces within his Oriental world. If his "float-
ing constituency" actually sees him as leading
the vanguard out of the third world of realpo -
itick, then perhaps the moves last week wi 1
have been prescient.
Until and unless all appropriate and demo-
cratic demands are met by those 'former'
terrorists, we cannot but hold out skeptical
hope for a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
Would that we were wrong.
A Forward Step
Responding to appeals both from President
Herzog and top representatives of world
Jewry, Prime Minister Shamir has formed a
coalition government in Israel.
Both the Likud and Labor party leaders had
to overcome major opposition internally to
achieve the new agreement. But the selection
of the top cabinet posts appears to be the most
representative alignment possible.
While Washington, seemed to prefer the
Peres stance in favor of an international peace
conference, neither the Reagan-Bush Admin-
istration nor world Jewry is likely to protest
the final coalition.
There are those who have hastily concluded
that the new Israeli government is unable to
meet the challenges inherent in the PLO's new
political power.
A far better attitude is to give both Shamir's
coalition and President-Elect Bush time to set
their respective agendas. What has waited 40
years can wait a few more weeks.

Bill Would End Hostile Conversions
Passage of the "Who is a Jew"
bill wul prevent hostile Arabs
from infiltrating Israel after
undergoing quick conversions
to Reform Judaism, according
to a senior Israeli official.
Yossi Ben-Aharon, director-
general of the Prime Minis-
ter's office, told reporters that
the security angle was an addi-
tional reason for Likud's sup-
port of the "Who is a Jew"
Ben-Aharon cited the case of
Mubarak Awad, the Arab-
American who was expelled
from Israel earlier this year
because of his leadership role
in recent Arab rioting. Follow-
ing his return to the United
States, Awad said that several
Reform rabbis had offered to
convert him so that he could
re-enter Israel as a "Jew."
If the "Who is a Jew" bill is
passed, Ben-Aharon said, con-
versions of doubtful validity
will not be recognized, thereby
disqualifying Awad and others
like him from entering Israel.
Ben-Aharon pointed to
quickie conversions performed
in twenty-four hours. Not
many Jews would accept such
conversions as sincere, Ben-
Aharon said, but unless the
"Who is a Jew" bill is passed,
such converts would be
regarded as Jewish under
Israeli law.
A Shared
Response to
All people of conscience
must share the grief that over-
whelms our Armenian neigh-
bors during these tragic days.
The natural catastrophe of
the earthquake, which has
resulted in the deaths of tens
of thousands and the destruc-
tion of whole villages in Soviet
Armenia, evokes the deepest
feelings of compassion and
human solidarity.
In the Jewish community, I
have found a special sense of
identification with the Arme-
nian people in this trying time.
Both Armenians and Jews
are numerically small people.
As one American Armenian
aptly put it, "Armenia being
such a small country, it doesn't
matter if it's a member of the
family or not. We take our
losses very hard. Every single
member is important.
That could have been a Jew
describing the ethnic closeness
of the Jewish people.
Both Armenians and Jews
have had long and often pain-
ful histories dating back to
biblical times. The Talmud
suggests that there were Jew-
ish communities in Armenia
since the Babylonian disper-
Armenians, like Jews, have a
homeland and a Diaspora
which figure centrally in their
religious and national consci-
In more recent times,
Ambassadors Oscar Straus
and Henry Morgenthau played
crucial roles in seeking to end
the 1915 massacres of Armeni-
ans, and they have become
authentic heroes among know-
ledgeable Armenians.
When I was working as con-
sultant on the NBC-TV series
"Holocaust" in the 1970s, one
of the first people to respond
with deep understanding of
the Nazi victimization of the
Jews was Archbishop Torkom
Manoogian, primate of the
Armenian church. "Armeni-
ans understand Jewish suffer-
ing," he declared publicly.
Now it is our turn to respond
with equal sympathy and car-
ing. The Armenian churches,
and major relief groups listed
in newspapers are key places
to provide help.
In the Jewish community,
the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee and
the American Jewish World
Service are mobilizing relief
for the Armenian people.

JDC Funds Jamaican Relief
NEW YORK (JTA) The American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee is preparing to rebuild reading
rooms on the campus of the University of the West Indies,
which suffered an estimated $11 million damage from
September's Hurricane Gilbert.
Heinz Eppler, president of the JDC, said the project is
the result of a nationwide response to its "Open Mailbox
for Jamaica," which is still receiving contributions.
The $20,000 already collected is being matched by
Jamaica's tiny Jewish community. The 300 Jamaican Jews
are descendants of a community that dates from the 16th
A Jamaican Jewish architect has volunteered his profes-
sional services for the classroom project.
Meanwhile, checks have been "pouring in" to JDC's open
mailbox for Armenian earthquake relief, according to a
spokesman. Donations for Armenia or Jamaica may be sent
to JDC, 711 Third Ave., New York, N.Y. 10017.
Nobel Laureate Prize Winners
TEL AVIV (JTA) Two former winners of Israel's
international Wolf Foundation prizes were in Stockholm to
accept their Nobel Prizes.
Sir James Black of Great Britain and Professor Leon
Lederman of the United States are this year's Nobel
Laureates in medicine and physics, respectively.
They join seven other past Wolf Prize winners who
subsequently won the Nobel Prize, five of them in
The Israel-based Wolf Foundation presents annual
$100,000 awards for achievements in medicine, physics,

Since 1975, 108 laureates from 17 countries have
received Wolf awards. The foundation was established by
the late Dr. Ricardo Wolf, who once served as Cuban
ambassador to Israel.
Korczak Literary Prizes
NEW YORK (JTA) The Janusz Korczak Literary
Competition for books about, or aimed at, children,
awarded first prizes to Father Bruce Ritter, founder of
New York's Covenant House, and Los Angeles writer
Malka Drucker.
Hitter's book, "Covenant House" (Doubleday), won first
prize in the category of adult books for children.
Drucker's book, "Eliezer Ben-Yehuda-The Father of
Modern Hebrew" (E.P. Dutton), won first prize for books
aimed at young readers.
Korczak was in charge of an orphanage in the Warsaw
Ghetto who perished along with his children in Treblinka.
Nat Kameny, chairman of the International Center for
Holocaust Studies of the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, which sponsored the award, said they are given for
books published in the last two years which exemplify
Korczak's humanitarianism and self-sacrifice.

The Division encompasses
three general goals: To bring
business and professional men
together to network and
socialize; to educate them on
the needs and issues facing the
Jewish people; and to increase
their level of giving to a more
"responsible" level.
The group hopes to accom-
plish these goals primarily
through a series of outreach
breakfasts, which are open to
all Jewish business and profes-

The programs usually feature

The B&P Men's Group is

"Fundraising for business
and professional men has been
mostly geographic in the
past," B&P Men's Division Co-
Chairman, Ron Schram ex-
plained. "It's not as effective,
however, for professionals
since most of these people get
together based on their field of
interest." Schram hopes that
organizing the Division accord-

these men to become more
connected to the group and
subsequently more involved
with Jewish issues in general.

An effort by the Federation of

the germ "genocide" and mak-

The group urges the UN to

only two members of his family
to survive the Holocaust, by
naming the Genocide Conven-
tion after him.
Enabling legislation to ratify
the Genocide Treaty was
