nificantly. It is one of the

Quayle Charms
Palm Beach Audience
The primarily Jewish audi-
ence at the Breakers Hotel in
Palm Beach Friday, Feb. 10,
initially received Vice Presi-
dent Dan Quayle with polite,
re-served applause.
But Quayle quickly took con-
trol and charmed B'nai B'rith
Anti-Defamation League
members with unfamiliar wit,
telling self-effacing jokes and
quips about his "warm per-
sonal" relationship with the
news media.
As the crowd, which lined
the sides of the room and filled
the aisles, laughed and
applauded his skillful opening,
Quayle smiled and proceeded
with his prepared text.
"I am here to tell you that
the aim of the Bush Adminis-
tration is to strengthen the
pluralistic threads out of which
our society is woven to build
a 'kinder, gentler nation,'
where racism, anti-Semitism
and bigotry of every sort no
longer deface the American
landscape," he began.

since his inauguration on Jan.
20, Vice President J. Danforth
Quayle broke no new ground
with the Jewish audience Fri-
day, but did renew its faith in

appeasement policy toward
Meeting in the U.S. capital
this month, the B'nai Bfrith
leadership noted that "Greece
has a long history of accommo-
dation with extremist ele-
ments in the Arab world."
B'nai B'rith urged "all govern-
ments, but especially the coun-
tries of the European com-
munity, to exert pressure on
the Greek government" and
issued a call to international
agencies to consider refusing
to land at or take off from
Greek airports "until and
unless the Greek government
changes its policy on inter-
national terrorists."
Critical Statement Fails
WASHINGTON, D.C. At a meeting of the Board of
Governors of the National Conference on Soviet Jewry
(NCSJ), the following statement was unanimously agreed
"The NCSJ will continue its process of assessing our
position vis-a-vis U.S.-Soviet trade policy, looking toward a
new policy in the near future if emigration, and the climate
in which it functions, are sustained."
The NCSJ represents 47 national Jewish organizations
and 300 local Jewish federations and community councils.

The Zipkins and Ellison are
hard at work signing up volun-
teers throughout the commun-
ity. They explained that word
of mouth is a great method of
recruitment because the ex-
citement and enthusiasm of
those who worked last year
makes others want to be a part
of the day. On Sunday, April
2nd, volunteers will call thou-
sands of people in an effort to
obtain pledges from new con-
tributors and from those peo-
ple who have not yet made
their commitment to the 1989
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County/United Jewish
Appeal Campaign.
Recruitment brochures will
also be sent to all those who
volunteered last year to solicit
their help once again. In addi-
tion to volunteer telephone
callers, office workers, hosts
and hostesses and youth par-
ticipation are needed.
Volunteers are needed from
8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., 10:30 a.m.
to 1 p.m., 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.,
and 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Each

ed to please arrive promptly.

In the course of his
remarks, Quayle, frequently
interrupted by applause,
showed knowledge of ADL his-
tory, offered platitudes on reli-
gious liberty, civil rights, the
cause of democracy and human
rights, and finally addressed
the role the U.S. has played
and will continue to play in the
Middle East, its position on the
Palestinian uprising and Ara-
"Another recent develop-
ment in the Middle East has
been Yasir Arafat's accep-
tance of American conditions
for initiating a dialogue that
is, recognition of Israel's right
to exist, renunciation of ter-
rorism, and acceptance of UN
Security Council Resolutions
242 and 338," Quayle began in
an outline of issues with which
the Bush administration is cur-
rently grappling.
"But there are many reasons
for looking long and hard
before drawing any firm con-
clusions about Mr. Arafat's
reversal. We need to see real
evidence of concrete actions by
the PLO actions for peace,
and against terrorism
before changing our funda-
mental attitude toward the
PLO," the vice president con-
Originally scheduled to
speak before the ADL's
National Executive Commit-
tee's annual dinner Thursday
evening, Quayle unexpectedly
canceled his engagement due
to the president's address on
the new budget proposal, tele-
vised the same evening.
Quayle's Friday appearance
was especially arranged for
some 500 Jewish community
leaders from all sections of the
country in place of his sched-
uled appearance the night
ADL's National Executive
Committee is a policy-making
body whose members come
from all over the nation to
participate in the meeting's
sessions on various issues of
Jewish concern. An estimated
750 Jewish leaders were in
attendance, at the conference.
Following the Vice Presi-
dent's speech Friday, Louise
Shure, director of ADL in
Palm Beach, said she felt very
positive about Quayle's
remarks: "The Vice Presi-
dent's words were extensively
supportive of the Jewish com-
munity's position in support of
Israel," she commented. "It's
reassuring to hear that the
U.S. government is closely
examining the actions of the
P.L.O. and Arafat and that it
finds an independent Palestin-
ian state unacceptable."
In addition to holding five
press conferences, adding
three more to two that were
originally scheduled, Quayle
made two other stops during
his one-day visit to South Flor-
ida: a tour of the Charles R.
Drew Elementary School in
Liberty City and an address to
the Cuban American Bar Asso-
ciation at Miami's Omni Hotel.

Rethinking Policy
Israel's formal request that the United
States end its talks with the PLO because of
ongoing Palestinian terrorist attacks should
be given consideration by the Bush Adminis-
At the same time, attention should be paid
to recent polls which show that a slight
majority of all Israelis are in favor of some
Israeli discussions with the PLO in its self-
proclaimed role as the sole representative of
all Palestinians.
The new attack, the first clearly assigned to
PLO "fighters" since the organization's
renunciation of terrorism and recognition of
Israel, also may cause world figures to moder-
ate their major shift towards Palestinian
points of view since then.
The President inherited the decision to open
dialogue with the Palestine Liberation Organi-
zation through an extremely late decision of
his predecessor in the White House. In spite of
it, Ronald Reagan has earned the right to be
called Israel's staunchest ally since Harry S
Truman recognized the Jewish State in its
Foreign Minister Moshe Arens clearly pin-
pointed the identification of four Palestinians
among the five guerrillas killed in an at-
tempted assault on Israel by extremely well-
armed men.
The fact that the dead Palestinians are
members of radical wings of the PLO is
irrelevant, since Chairman Arafat represents
that he speaks for the entire organization, and
indeed for all Palestinians.
Because Arafat has not condemned nor
disowned this overt terrorist action, Israel's
strong protests are well warranted. How Mr.
Bush and the State Department respond will
be the first evidence of this Administration's
ability to back up the pledges given American
Jewish leaders during last fall's Presidential
Encouraging and Constructive Relationships
President George Bush's
inaugural address was a mov-
ing appeal for a "kinder, gen-
tler America and world
society. All Americans, I am
sure, pray for his strength and
moral stamina to lead our
nation in realizing his compas-
sionate goals for overcoming
poverty, homelessness, drugs
and crime and for advancing
world peace.
American Jews, in particu-
lar, have added reasons for
believing his words will be
more than political rhetoric.
When Bush was U.S. ambassa-
dor to the United Nations, I
appealed to him on three sep-
arate occasions to intervene
with the Soviet Union in order
to free hardship cases of Rus-
sian Jews.
He responded at once with
obvious caring. He made
immediate inquiries to pre-
glasnost Moscow that resulted
in the early emigration of
these sorely-tried families.
Another instance was his lit-
tle-known but decisive role in
negotiating the historic depar-
ture of some 12,000 black Jews
of Ethiopia to Israel.
We hope that as president,
Bush will now try to rescue the
remaining 15,000 Ethiopian
Jews who desperately seek to
be reunited with their families.
As vice president, Bush
chaired a U.S. government
task force against internation-
al terrorism. He was totally
committed to combatting ter-
rorism, and, I believe, that
conviction will be an important
factor in his efforts to promote
peace in the Middle East.
Last week he said he
opposed a Palestinian state as
"a non-starter," and sup-
ported a "confederation
between Israel and Jordan."
President Bush has called
for "a new engagement" to
build a more just and humane
society. His record thus far
with the Jewish people, among
others, provides an encourag-
ing basis for a constructive
relationship with him during
the next four years.

But, now, the reports are
of violence. The earlier
rock-throwing at cars in
Mea Shearim and like ultra-
Orthodox neighborhoods
has escalated. Incendiary
bombs and hand grenades
have become the tools of
religious terrorism.
Whether or not those sus-
pected of the firebombings
are actually charged with
membership in terrorist
organizations is immaterial
and incidental to the
destructive force they rep-

The forces from without

should be sufficient for the
energies of all Israelis. That
the religious bloc, which

destructive and disastrous
influence in what is now the

Bank, and PLO leaders deny-
ing him a role in representing
Palestinian Arabs, King Hus-
sein's historic problem with
the Palestinian Arabs has wor-
sened in the past year.
Hussein recently took steps
to deter potential problems at
home by replacing Foreign
Minister Taher Masri, a Pales-
tinian Arab from Nablus, with
Marwan Kassem, a close Hus-
sein aide and former chief of
the royal court. Some sources
believe Hussein is trying to
surround himself with loyal
advisers to prepare for a pot-
ential Palestinian uprising at

Suspect In Nationwide Scam
Arrested In New Mexico
Kansas City Jewish Chronicle
(JTA) A 26-year-old Denver
man believed to be involved for
the last two years in a fraud
scheme that bilked Jewish
community leaders across the
country has been arrested in
New Mexico and is awaiting
extradition back to Kansas.
Daniel Mark Seiden, son of a
prominent Jewish family in
Denver, is being held on a
fugitive warrant in a county
jail for allegedly violating the
terms of his probation, grant-
ed after a 1987 fraud convic-
tion in that state in which he
defrauded a local synagogue
leader out of $1,000.
Seiden is believed to be the
same man who has worked a
swindle sometimes using
the aliases Danny Lefkowitz
and Bemie Katz hoodwink-
ing community leaders across
the country into giving him
anywhere from $400 to $1,000.
The man typically familiar-
izes himself with the names of
local Jewish leaders, contacts
them and portrays himself as
stranded with no money. The
man is then able to fast-talk
sympathetic leaders out of
Seiden is "well-versed in the
workings of Jewish communi-
ties," said Donald Feldstein, a
spokesman for the Council of
Jewish Federations. The CJF
has periodically alerted federa-
tions of such scam operations,
going back to 1986.
Kansas authorities hope to
have Seiden returned to re-
voke his probation after New
Mexico completes its proceed-
Kansas authorities want Sei-
den in connection with a 1988
conviction, in which he posed
as a down-and-out young man
who talked the local leader out
of $1,000.
"The victim was contacted
(in July 1987) by telephone by
a guy named Bemie Katz and
the story was ... he was really
concerned about his son, Mark,
because his son was having
some problems and he hadn't
heard from him for days," said
Detective Bill Falk of the
Overland Park Police Depart-
"Less than an hour later, lo
and behold, the son contacts
the victim by telephone advis-

What would Tevye really have done differently if he'd been a rich man?

Highlights of Vice President's
Speech in Palm Beach
Vice President Quayle's remarks Friday to members of
the Anti-Defamation League focused primarily on Israel,
the Palestinians, Yasir Arafat's new position in the Middle
East and the principles underlying the U.S.-Middle East
policy. Following are some highlights of his speech:
On Yasir Arafat:
"A recent development in the Middle East has been Yasir
Arafat's acceptance of American conditions for initiating a
dialogue. But there are many reasons for looking long and hard
before drawing any firm conclusions about Mr. Arafat's reversal.
We need more than press conference statements and semantics.
We need to see real evidence of concrete actions by the PLO before
changing our fundamental attitude toward them. As Secretary of
State Baker has noted, "The existence of the dialogue should not
lead anyone to misunderstand our overall policy or question our
enduring support for the State of Israel.'
On the Palestinian Uprising:
"The Palestinian uprising has resulted in nearly four hundred
Palestinians killed, and many more injured. And, of course,
Arab states have killed far more Palestinians than Israel has.
But Israel cannot be judged by the standards of its neighbors.
Israel judges itself on the basis of the standards which prevail in
the democratic West. And on the basis of these standards, the
status quo on the West Bank and Gaza Strip is clearly
UN Condemnation of Israel:
"We will continue to oppose the one-sided condemnations of
Israel's actions that emerge aU-too-ofien from the UN. In its very
first week on the job, the Bush Administration made it clear that
we would veto a proposed Security Council Presidential state-
ment harshly critical of Israel. As a result, the statement was
withdrawn. We hope that the sponsors of this statement have
learned a lesson about the U.S. commitment to the truth and
justice in the Middle East."
Principles of U.S. Middle East policy:
"The first principle of U.S. Middle East policy remains strong
and unwavering support for Israels security. We are committed
to helping Israel protect itself against any combination of
aggressors. And we will always make clear to the world, through
moral and. material support, that we are a permanent and
unshakable ally of the State of Israel.
A second enduring principle underlying U.S. Middle East
policy is the search for an Arab-Israeli peace based on direct
negotiations between the parties. We believe that negotiations can
work. But the responsibility for making the compromises, for
finding the solutions, rests with the parties themselves. Anyone
who tries to shift the primary peace-making responsibility to the
U.S., who thinks that we can somehow be persuaded into
pressuring Israel to accept a pre-cooked 'solution,' is only
kidding himself.
"A third enduring principle of our Middle East policy is that
direct negotiations must be based on U.S. Security Council
Resolutions iUt and SS8, which include the exchange of territory
for peace. Realistically, we believe that Jordan must play a part
in any peace settlement. The Palestinians must participate in the
determination of their own future, as well. We continue to believe,
however, that an independent Palestinian state will not be a
source of stability or a contribution to a just and lasting peace."

BONN (JTA) By virtue of
its having won seats in the
West Berlin legislature during
recent elections, the neo-Nazi
Republican Party will now also
be represented in the Bunde-
stag, West Germany's parlia-
That news added to the
widely felt shock and dismay
over the surprisingly strong
showing of the far right-wing
party, headed by a former SS
officer, 66-year-old Franz
The Republicans won 7.5
percent of the popular vote in
the West Berlin elections, giv-
ing them 11 seats in the 128-
seat city parliament.
West Berlin is represented
in the Bundestag by delegates
chosen from its legislature,
apportioned according to party
That will give the Republi-
cans two seats in the national
parliament, although its con-
stituency in the Federal
Republic is minuscule.
The unexpected showing by
the Republicans could pose a
dilemma for the three Western
occupying powers Britain,
France and the United States
which still formally adminis-
ter West Berlin.
In the past, they have
banned extreme right-wing
parties, such as the National
Democratic Party which enjoy-
ed a brief ascendancy in the
late 1960s.
Apparently the Allied pow-
ers had considered the Repub-
licans to be of no consequence
in city politics.
Their surprise election to the
legislature triggered a fierce
reaction. Some 10,000 protes-
ters marched through the
streets of West Berlin carry-
ing banners reading "Nazis
Out" and "No More Fascism."
Many Jews were among the
marchers who included mode-
rates, leftists, trade unionists
and students.
Heinz Galinski, chairman of
West Germany's Jewish com-
munity, said he was "disap-
pointed and shocked" by the
West Berlin election results.
Hussein's Palestinian Problem
Continued from Page 4
Arab world became king in
1952 at the age of 16.
More than 50 percent of Jor-
dan's population are Palestin-
ian Arabs and most feel a
kinship toward the West Bank
Arabs. "The Palestinians [in
Jordan] are strongly touched
by what's going on [in the
territories]," said one analyst.
The Palestinian Arabs view
the uprising as "Kent State
every day." Israeli television,
broadcast into Jordan, shows
the uprising and could incite
the Palestinian Arabs there,
commented Adam Garfinkle,
coordinator of the Political
Studies Program at the For-
eign Policy Research Institute
in Philadelphia.
Cutbacks in oil revenue in
the Persian Gulf have brought
unemployed Jordanian wor-
kers back home and reduced
Amman's financial support
from abroad. "Regrettably not
all the Arab sisters have ful-
filled their commitments tow-
ard Jordan under the Baghdad
summit resolutions," Hussein
said. "And this is the main
part of the problem. Had it not
been for this, there would have
been no [economic] problem in
Jordan.,! [The United States
has allocated $3.5 million for
Jordan in fiscal year 1989
$10 million in foreign military
sales and $15 million in econo-
mic support funds.]
Hussein is worried that Jor-
dan's economic downturn will
add fuel to the restiveness of
Palestinian Arabs and has
tried to give them "a stake in
the staus quo," according to
But last summer, in
response to the PLO's refusal
to grant Hussein any role on
behalf of Palestinian Arabs,
the King severed most of his
country s ties with the West
Bank: cutting off salaries to
Jordanian civil servants; refus-
ing to issue new Jordanian
passports; and dissolving the
half-Palestinian Arab lower
house of the Jordanian parlia-
Hussein's disengagement
failed to prevent unrest at
home. In December, a riot
erupted at Jordan University
between pro-Jordanian and
pro-PLO supporters. The pro-
Jordanians yelling "Jordan
is for Jordanians were
reportedly forced to protest by
Amman. "That's rare in Jor-
dan," said Garfinkle, "clearly
things are tense." According
to one analyst, however, Hus-
sein may have been allowing
students to "let off steam."
Hussein maintains that his
disengagement from the West
Bank finally forced the PLO to
meet U.S. conditions for a
dialogue after having tried
unsuccessfully for years to get
Arafat to accept U.S. Resolu-
tions 242 and 338 and
renounce violence.

Random Thoughts
Stroll with me down Memory Lane. Come along and try
to remember the Bronx as it used to be. Let's go back in
time to familiar locales and the life we once knew in the
places we frequented as young people. Maybe you'll
recognize the area where I grew up.
Born and raised near Kingsbridge Road, my favorite
haunt was Poe Park. This small greenery on the Concourse
contained the historic home of Edgar Allan Poe. I cannot
recall how many times I visited there. As I walked through
those tiny rooms and thought of Poe writing "The Raven"
I was always overcome with romance and mystery.
Aside from the glamour of Poe's cottage, every Wednes-
day night all the Jewish kids I knew came to Poe Park for
the weekly dances. A big band played for three hours while
we all lindy-hopped and jitterbugged. There was a sign on a
large easel proclaiming the words "Con Edison." I blush to
confess that I thought "Con Edison" was the name of the
bandleader. You can imagine how sophisticated and
worldly I was!
Going Southward on the Grand Concourse was the
Loew's Paradise. I have difficulty describing the opulence
of this movie palace. The lobby was plushly carpeted in red
and the walls boasted carved statuary of all sizes and
shapes. The theater interior was beyond belief. It had two
balconies, an enormous orchestra pit, plus a pipe organ of
gargantuan size. Wonder of wonders, there was a midnite
blue ceiling with moving clouds and twinkling stars as
though the heavens were almost touchable. I recall seeing
"Gone With the Wind" there in 1936. My boyfriend at the
time paid $2.50 each for tickets. What class he had! It was a
Saturday night I have never forgotten.
Diagonally opposite the movie was Krums. Now, if
you've ever lived in the Bronx you know that Krums was
the epitomy of confectionary delight. What candy, what
butter krunch, what chocolate! The big bonus was that
everything they sold was strictly kosher. This was mighty
important to the Jewish population and we sure used this
information to the best advantage, gorging ourselves on
those approved goodies. Who can forget the belly-buster
banana splits and the luscious hot fudge sundaes after your
evening at the Paradise ... not I.
Moving down-aways, let's visit 170th Street. This shop-
ping area's claim to fame was that it featured the only
Horn and Hardart Automat in the Bronx. What a novelty
this cafeteria was to the Jewish kids who led a relatively
sheltered life. With a handful of nickels we opened little
doors behind which sat dishes of food. My forays into this
world of wonders were limited to desserts. Having come
from a kosher home, I did not recognize many of the foods
offered and I was afraid to tempt fate. The Automat was
my first experience in the world of contemporary American
Our next stop on Memory Lane must include Temple
Adath Israel on 169th street and the Concourse. From an
early age I attended religious school there, traveling all the
way down from Kingsbridge. At thirteen I was confirmed
in the sanctuary of this beautiful synagogue. My teacher
and mentor was Rabbi Henry A. Schorr. Eight years later,
this same Rabbi performed our marriage ceremony as the
organ played, the choir chanted, and I walked trembling
down the red carpeted aisle. What a long walk it was down
that aisle to the chuppah.
How many years have passed, how much has happened,
and what long roads we have all traveled. I have been told
that my beloved temple in the Bronx is now a Baptist
church how sad. The neighborhoods have surely
changed dramatically and we cannot go back in time. Yet
as I go down my road of memories, I know that I will
always remember the many wonderful places I used to
know. They may be different or even gone, but the
excitement and wonder of the things that used to be will
live on in my thoughts forever and ever.

total of 2,725 Jews left the
Soviet Union in January, the
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry reported.
This is 25 percent less than
December's total of 3,652.
However, if the January rate
is maintained or increased for
the rest of the year, more than
32,000 Jews will leave the
Soviet Union in 1989. Nearly
19,000 emigrated last year.

Soviet Defector Safe In Israel
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli
officials are circumspect over
the defection to Israel of a
prominent member of the
Soviet Academy of Sciences
who arrived here last week.
Jacob Kogan, 48, a distin-
guished mathematician, liter-
ally bolted from an official
Soviet delegation attending an
international conference on
computers in Paris.
He reportedly left his hotel
early one morning last week to
jog. He made his way directly
to the Israeli Embassy, where
he asked for asylum.
The Foreign Ministry, ap-
parently embarrassed by the
defection at a time when Is-
raeli-Soviet relations seem
to be improving, stressed
that Kogan arrived in Israel
"through normal procedures."
"As with all Jews wishing to
come to Israel," he was first
issued a tourist visa and then,
since he had no money, was
referred to the Jewish Agency
in Paris, which provided him
with an air ticket, a Foreign
Ministry spokesman explained.
Kogan landed at Ben-Gurion
Aiport carrying a small bag
and still wearing his running
He is presently housed at the
Milman immigrant absorption
center in Tel Aviv, but has not
yet been issued an immigrant's
Kogan left a wife and two
sons, ages 7 and 10, in Mos-
cow. He told reporters here he
had wanted to go to Israel for
a long time.
But he did not apply for an
exit permit, because he would
immediately have lost his job
and would have had to wait for
years as a refusenik because of
his alleged knowledge of state
secrets, he said.
Israeli officials apparently
want him to keep a low profile.
After telling reporters
recently that he was "very
happy" to be in Israel, he was
whisked away before he could
be asked any questions.

Second-Line: Soviet Resettlement
United Jewish Appeal will
launch a special national fund-
raising campaign to help pay
for the high cost of resettling
the crush of Jewish emigrants
pouring out of the Soviet
The decision comes amid
mounting pressure from local
Jewish federations and reset-
tlement agencies hard hit by
the largest Soviet Jewish emi-
gration in nine years.
The American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee, which
provides basic housing, social
and educational services for
Soviet emigrants in transmi-
gration centers in Italy, an-
nounced that it is facing a huge
deficit and will no longer be
able to accept Soviet Jewish
clients at its facilities after
March 31.
Board members of the Coun-
cil of Jewish Federations, re-
presenting some 200 Jewish
community federations, adopt-
ed a resolution calling on UJA
to "give serious attention" to
a special campaign.
UJA executive committee
members, meeting at the
Grand Hyatt Hotel here voted
to appoint a committee to
work out the details of the
campaign, sources said.
It is expected to be a "sepa-
rate-line' campaign similar to
that used to raise funds for
Operation Moses, the Ethio-
pian Jewry rescue effort.
The Soviet Union's liberal-
ized emigration policy, in ef-
fect, has created a financial
crisis for JDC and the North
American Jewish federations.
Nearly 19,000 Jews were al-
lowed out of the Soviet Union
in 1988, a nine-year high, and
30,000 to 40,000 are expected
to be allowed out in 1989.
More than 90 percent of
these emigrants are choosing
to live in the United States,
thereby overwhelming Jewish
resources at the transmigra-
tion centers in Vienna and
Italy, and in the major Jewish
communities of the United
JDC expects it will need $53
million in 1989 to continue its
services to the Soviet emi-
grants alone, less $8 million
provided by the United States
Refugee Program. By compar-
ison, "care and maintenance"
for Soviet emigrants cost $13
million in 1988 and less than $1
million in 1987.
JDC is almost completely
funded by UJA. Last year it
received $52 million from
UJA, and this year it antici-
pates a $59 million allocation.
Its 1989 budget for worldwide
activities is expected to exceed
$70 million.
Most of the money raised
b> UJA goes to the Jewish
Agency for services in Israel.
Local Jewish federations allo-
cate a percentage of their total
local campaign to the UJA.
Already this year, JDC has
cut back services to emigrants
by 10 percent, and it will cut
services another 10 percent in
March. Another $7 million in
services has been trimmed
from JDC programs in many
of the 34 countries in which it
Sylvia Hassenfeld, president
of JDC, said in an interview at
JDC offices that the organiza-
tion has nearly reached its $10
million ceiling on bank loans.
By March 31, she said, JDC
centers in Rome and the
nearby Italian resort town of
Ladispoli will no longer be able
to accept additional Jewish
The situation is being com-
pounded by a change in U.S.
refugee policy, due to federal
budget pressures, toward the
Soviet emigrants seeking
entry to the United States as
political refugees.
In recent weeks, immigra-
tion officials have been reject-
ing 20 percent of those Soviet
Jews applying for the coveted
refugee status. Until last fall,
refugee status was granted
almost automatically for
Soviet Jewish emigrants.
The rejections have
increased the backlog of emi-
grants in Ladispoli, thereby
skyrocketing the costs to JDC
and the Hebrew Immigrant
Aid Society, which provides
additional resettlement ser-
Some 7,000 Soviet Jews, in
various stages of the emigra-
tion process, are now crowded
in and around Ladispoli. Ap-
proximately 700 have been
rejected for refugee status,
and most are appealing the

ADL Strives To Eliminate Private Club Discrimination
Palm Beach, FL. ... The
Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith has developed
model legislation for state and
local governments aimed at
eliminating discrimination in
private clubs throughout the
United States.
The League's model legisla-
tion is part of a new ADL
report entitled, "Private
Clubs: Legislative Responses
to Discriminatory Practices,"
which was made public at a
session of the agency's
National Executive Commit-
tee meeting February 9-12 at
the Breakers Hotel here. The
report which gives a brief
history of private club discrim-
ination reviews federal,
state and local laws surround-
ing the issue, giving the advan-
tages and problems of each
Donald R. Mintz, chairman
of ADL's Civil Rights Commit-
tee, described discrimination
by private clubs as "one of the
most pervasive and entrench-
ed forms of discrimination that
women, Jews, blacks and other
racial, ethnic and religious
minorities have encountered in
the U.S."
He pointed out that although
over 40 states have enacted
legislation prohibiting discrim-
ination, "more is needed since
there are still too many holes
in the laws which allow private
clubs to close their doors on
certain groups of people."
Mr. Mintz said that a private
club is "any self-defined group
which includes one segment of
the population and bars the
general public from its activi-
ties and/or facilities." He cited
the following as some ex-
amples: country clubs, athletic
clubs, social clubs, business
clubs, fraternal organizations,
religious organizations and
professional organizations.
Mr. Mintz went on to say,
however, that "many of these
so-called privately-owned
establishments, are to some
extent, public, and should
therefore not be exclusion-
ary." He defined "public" as
referring to a club which has a
membership of several hun-
dred, provides regular meal
service and accepts payments
from non-members for expens-
es incurred there or in further-
ance of trade or business
including entertaining clients
or business associates holding
business meetings.
The ADL model statute
states: "It shall be unlawful
for a club which is not dis-
tinctly private to deny to any
person entry, use of its facilit-
ies or membership, or to
unreasonably prevent the full
enjoyment of said club on the
basis of a person's sex, race,
creed, color, religion, ances-
try, national origin, actual or
perceived sexual orientation or
Other sections of the ADL
model include provisions which
prevent government from
supporting discriminatory
clubs, even tacitly;
discourage public officials,
employees and agents from
belonging to discriminatory
clubs since none of their
expenses would be reimbursed
by the government;
make discriminatory clubs
ineligible to enter into any
commercial arrangement with
require a private club to sign
and file a non-discrimination
statement with the state liquor
authority if it is seeking a
liquor license, or renewing its
liquor license;
provide an exemption for
organizations, whose primary
purpose is to serve members of
a particular religion, to limit
their membership or facilities
to individuals who share the
same religious faith. This
exemption covers religious,
charitable, education, or social
welfare organizations, solely
with respect to religious dis-
crimination and only to the
extent that such discrimina-
tion is necessary to promote
the religious beliefs of the

Opposition To Sharansky
Selection For U.N. Post
misgivings have surfaced over
the proposed appointment of
Soviet Jewry activist Natan
Sharansky to be Israel's
ambassador to the United
Liberal and leftist circles
fear Sharansky's strong anti-
Soviet stance could compro-
mise Israel's policies at a time
when relations with Moscow
seem to be warming.
According to The Jerusalem
Post, U.S. State Department
officials have expressed simi-
lar concerns, which have been
conveyed to Jerusalem by the
Israeli Embassy in Washing-
ton. Sharansky is an outspo-
ken critic of Soviet President
Mikhail Gorbachev. He calls
glasnost (openness) policy
more cosmetic than indicative
of long-term, substantive
changes in the Soviet system.
Moreover, some argue, the
Soviets are likely to take
offense if a man they convicted
of spying for the United States
however trumped-up the
charges may have been

But a spokesperson for the
Soviet Mission to the United
Nations in New York, quoted
by Ma'ariv, said Sharansky's
appointment would be of no
concern to the USSR.
"Whatever we think about
him, you are entitled to make
your own diplomatic appoint-
ments," the spokesperson was
quoted as saying.
Media reports said Shar-
ansky was approached infor-
mally for the U.N. job by
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir, Foreign Minister Moshe
Arens and Deputy Foreign
Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
But Shamir later appeared
to distance himself from the
Picked By Netanyahu
A spokesman said the prime
minister was not asked offi-
cially to approve Sharansky's
appointment. It must also have
the consent of Shamir's coali-
tion partner, Vice Premier
Shimon Peres, who heads the
Labor Party and also serves as
finance minister.
It was in fact Netanyahu,
Israel's U.N. ambassador until
he quit last year to run for the
Knesset, who picked Shar-
ansky as his successor.
Arens reportedly agreed
readily to the choice. Shar-
ansky has strong backing in
the Likud and among right-
wing hard-liners in general.
But Sharansky has carefully
refrained from expressing a
preference for any political
Sarty during the three years
e has been in Israel.
He has strong support in the
Soviet Jewish emigree com-
munity here. Many believe
that his appointment to the
prestigious U.N. post would
encourage more Jews leaving
the Soviet Union to go to
Israel instead of the United
Foreign service careerists,
unlike Netanyahu and Arens,
are less than enthusiastic at
the prospect of Sharansky
heading Israel's U.N. dele-
