sture" needed by Jordan to
nonstrate that the U.S.
uizes both its military
ds and its political needs."
Murphy, who heads the
State Department's Near
Eastern and South Asian
bureau, was reiterating the
position taken by Secretary of
State George Shultz before
various Congressional commit-
tee in the last few weeks. Mur-
phy said the U.S. proposes to
sell Jordan advanced anti-
aircraft and aircraft systems
but would not be specific about
whether Jordan would receive
F-16 or F-20 fighter planes.
Murphy said that while the
U.S. plans to sell Saudi Arabia
some spare parts for military
equipment it now has, no other
major arms sales to any Arab
country is planned.
Saudi Arabia announced
recently that it plans to buy 48
Tornado fighters and 30 Hawk
trainers from Britain. The
Saudis reportedly received ap-
proval from the Reagan Ad-
ministration to buy the British
planes because the Ad-
ministration feared a major
battle with Congress if it met
the Saudi request for some 40
F-15 fighters from the U.S.
Murphy rejected a sugges-
tion by Rep. Lee Hamilton (D.,
Ind.), the Subcommittee's
chairman, for a compromise on
the sale to Jordan. Rep. Mel
Levine (D., Calif.), also sug-
gested a compromise, declar-
ing that rather than helping
the peace process, selling
sophisticated arms to Jordan
would be ''counter-
Rep. Lawrence Smith (D.,
Fla.) said there has been a
history of 35 years of "frustra-
tion" in which arms were link-
ed to the peace process and
nothing happened. He said the
U.S. has a "carrot and stick
policy" in which it provides the
carrot and "we beat ourselves
with the stick."
Smith said that instead of
supplying arms in return for
promises, the U.S. should see
the fulfillment of the promises
first. "We have done
everything we can," he said,
adding that it was not up to
King Hussein of Jordan to
cross not the Rubicon but the
Jordan River and begin
negotiations with Israel.

General Assembly.
More than 100 heads of state
and governement are expected
to attend the Assembly.
Among the visiting heads of
state will be Israel's- Premier
Shimon Peres. Netanyahu said
that Peres will stay in the
United States from Oct. 20 to
24, and that following his ad-
dress to the Assembly he will
go to Washington to meet with
President Reagan. He said
that the Premier's itinerary is
not yet finalized and the exact
dates therefore for his UN ap-
pearance and the meeting with
the President are still to be
The Israeli envoy said that a
new positive development has
emerged this year regarding
Israel's diplomatic contacts with
various member-states.
"There is a substantial change
in the willingness of member-
states to meet with Israeli
representatives," Netanyahu
said. "Many countries which even
do not have diplomatic ties with
us, have agreed to meet with us
during the Assembly. It seems
that past years' concerns, regar-
ding Arab sanctions, are no longer
a factor in the decision of many
countries to hold meeting and
discussions with Israel."
He said that Israeli Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir who ar-
rived in New York on Sunday
evening, would meet with more
than 40 Foreign Ministers, some
from countries which do not have
diplomatic ties with Israel, such as
East European and African
resolve Israel's border dispute
with Egypt over Taba remains
frozen after a recent meeting
of the 10-man Labor-Likud In-
ner Cabinet ended in deadlock.
With the five Labor Party
ministers, headed by Premier
Shimon Peres, firmly behind
the proposal and the five Likud
ministers adamantly opposed,
Peres refrained from bringing
the matter to a formal vote. A
tie, which was inevitable in
this case, would have meant
defeat of the compromise.
It was evident, meanwhile,
that the fate of the year-old na-
tional unity coalition govern-
ment hung in the balance.
Although the Labor ministers
apparently decided not to
force an all-out confrontation
with Likud at this time,
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin said in radio interviews
that he could not see the
government lasting out its
term in a situation of
diplomatic paralysis.
Yitzhak Navon, Deputy
Premier and Minister of
Education, also warned that

will meet with no less than a dozen
heads of state, including India and
Hungary, who do not have
diplomatic relations with the
Jewish State.
NOTING THAT the Assembly
will focus on the question of apar-
theid in South Africa, Netanyahu
warned nonetheless, that he an-
ticipates an anti-Israeli campaign
which will seek to link Israel with
Pretoria's racial policies. "The
line that we are now hearing is
that there is a new strategic
triangle, which includes South
Africa, the United States and
Israel," Netanyahu said, in-
dicating that the Arabs will attack
Israel, and the U.S. according to
this line.
Netanyahu stressed Israel's op-
position to apartheid and said that
Israel will extensively publicize its
attitude during the General
leaders to do all that is possible
to open the gates of the Soviet
Union for Jewish emigration.
The three activists are Isai
and Grigory Goldstein of
Tbilisi, each refused emigra-
tion to Israel for 14 years, and
Ida Nudel, exiled to Benderi.
Grigory Goldstein and Nudel
are both former Prisoners of
Conscience. Their messages
were obtained by the Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry.
In one of the messages, the
three sent their "greetings to
. the State of Israel and the
Jewish people all over the
world for a new year of peace,
health and prosperity. Please
continue to demand from
Soviet authorities to end the
harassment of Jews in the
USSR and to let them
emigrate to Israel. Be
reassured of our own deter-
mination to continue in our
just struggle for freedom on
behalf of Soviet Jews."
In a message to President
Reagan, Secretary of State
ficials, including Mikhail Gor-
bachev. We urge you to do
whatever is possible to open
the Soviet Union's gates once
again for Jewish emigration."

Attorneys File
For Rabbi's Right To Wear Yarmulke
Attorneys for Rabbi Simcha
Goldman report that they
have filed a brief with the
U.S. Supreme Court
challenging the refusal of
the Air Force to allow
Goldman, as an Air Force
chaplain, to wear a skullcap
while on duty.
Allen Rothenberg, president of
the National Jewish Commission
on Law and Public Affairs, said
the case will represent the first
time that the Supreme Court will
be hearing a case involving a
religious practice in the military
establishment. The brief was filed
Sept. 3 in response to acceptance
of the case by the Supreme Court
last June, he said.
ecutive director, said that hear-
ings on the appeal are scheduled
to begin before the Supreme
Court on Dec. 10. The Supreme
Court notified the defense at-
torneys last June 17 that it would
hear the case.
Although Goldman has resigned
from the Air Force and is now a
psychologist with a Chabad House
in Los Angeles, the case is still
valid because of damages
Goldman allegedly suffered in lost
promotions and pay increases he
would have received if he had
obeyed the no-yarmulke order.
Rapps said Goldman remained
in the Air Force Reserves. Rapps
also pointed out that, in addition
to the damages issue, COLPA
undertook to represent Goldman
because of the religious rights
issue of the case.
Rabbi Simcha Goldman
Lewin, COLPA vice president, is
representing Goldman in the
Supreme Court action. A number
of secular Jewish organizations,
including the American Jewish
Committee, American Jewish
Congress and the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, filed friend-of-the-court
briefs in support of Goldman.
Rothenberg said that with Lewin
on the brief were David Butler,
COLPA secretary, and Rapps.
Lewin argued in the brief that
wearing a yarmulke is a religious
observance that interferes with no
one and imposes no burden on the
The brief also argued that the
record in the case, which includes
a description of Goldman's ap-
proximately four years of wearing
a yarmulke while in uniform,
showed that banning a yarmulke
is not necessary for military
discipline or morale as claimed by
the Air Force.
ROTHENBERG said Nathan THE BRIEF argued, in addi-
Nicaragua And the PLO
Nicaragua's ruling San-
dinistas have worked closely
with the PLO for more than 15
years and have ties to it, Libya
and Iran, according to a State
Department report released
recently. The unclassified
document, based largely on
news media accounts and
books, asserts that Sandinista
gunmen fought alongside the
PLO in the 'Black
September" 1970 uprising
against Jordan's King Hussein
and participated in the Sept. 6,
1970 hijacking of an El Al
In that same period Interior
Minister Tomas Borge, one of
the founders of the FSLN
(Sandinista National Libera-
tion Front), "became a
familiar figure in both
Damascus and Beirut" as a
-B major contact for both the
~ Nicaraguans and Cuban leader
* Fidel Castro. "Thus began the
symbiotic relationship bet-
ween the Sandinistas and the
PLO. From the PLO, the San-
dinistas got training in guer-
rilla warfare and an opportuni-
ty to practice their skills"
7 before the revolution against
? the Somoza government broke
X. out. "The PLO got help from
the Sandinistas in operations
that brought the PLO to world
attention and served as an ex-
ample for countless other
In the late 1970's, as the
e Nicaraguan revolution neared
- its climax, Sandinistas not on-
f ly trained in PLO camps in the
& Middle East, but also received
arms from the PLO and
through it from North Korea
and Vietnam, sometimes pur-
chased with Libyan money.
One such shipment, sent on a
PLO-chartered plane and
described as "medical sup-
plies" for Nicaraguan
refugees, was halted in Tunisia
in July, 1979 and turned out to
be 50 tons of weapons. After
the Sandinistas took power, a
flight of four Libyan planes
transporting "medical supplies
for Colombia," was stopped in
Brazil. On board were 83 tons
of weapons, including two
disassembled fighter planes.
"Shortly after the San-
dinistas seized power, they
rewarded the PLO ... by
granting it unprecedented
ties," the report states. In July
1980, Yasir Arafat made a
four-day "state visit" to
Nicaragua and "praised 'the
strategic and military ties bet-
ween the Sandinista and
Palestinian revolutions.' In-
terior minister Borges
responded, 'We say to our
brother Arafat that Nicaragua
is his land and the cause of the
PLO is the cause of the
Sandinistas.' "
Dozens of PLO advisers ar-
rived soon after "to instruct
the Sandinistas in the use of
Eastern-bloc weapons." In
1981 "PLO pilots were sent to
Nicaragua to assist the San-
dinistas in flying helicopters
and transport aircraft."
Although the destruction of
the PLO's base in Lebanon by
Israel in 1982 curtailed its
"ability to project itself ag-
gressively the PLO
presence, training, and other
activities in Nicaragua have
continued," the report says.
Near East Report
taon, that the military services do
not have carte blanche in dealing
with the constitutional liberties of
military personnel and that, given
the circumstances of the lack of
adverse impact the yarmulke
would occasion, Goldman had a
constitutional right to wear the
yarmulke on duty.
Goldman is an Orthodox Jew
who was ordained as a rabbi in
1970. After serving for two years
as a Navy chaplain, he enrolled in
the Armed Forces Health Profes-
sions Scholarship program, taking
courses in psychology at Loyola
University. In September, 1977,
after earning a doctorate in
psychology, he entered on active
duty in the Air Force, as a clinical
psychologist, at March Air Force
Base in California.
From the time he entered Air
Force service until early 1981,
Goldman kept his head covered, as
he had always done. This included
hours when he was on duty at the
Air Force hospital.
ROTHENBERG said that dur-
ing his entire three-and-one-half
years in the Air Force, Goldman
received consistently outstanding
performance ratings. No com-
plaints about his yarmulke were
received, nor were there any
other indications that his variance
from Air Force dress restrictions
had any harmful effect on his
handling of his duties or on
anyone else's military
In April, 1981, Goldman
testified as a defense witness in a
court-martial wearing his yar-
mulke. The opposing counsel then
made a complaint against him to
the hospital commandant.
On May 8, 1981, he was told by
the commandant that by wearing
a varmulke on dutv. he violated
the Air Force dress code. He was
given a formal letter of reprimand
and threatened with additional
sanctions, including a court-
martial, if he did not stop wearing
his yarmulke on duty.
GOLDMAN promptly started a
court action for injunctive relief
and damages. A federal district
court in Washington, D.C.
entered a temporary restraining
order and, after a hearing, issued
on April 26, 1982, an injunction
upholding Goldman's constitu-
tional right to wear a yarmulke on
duty. Goldman was awarded
damages for pay lost as a result of
the ban-yarmulke order.

UJA Evaluates '85 Campaign
Alex Grass, national chairman
of the United Jewish Appeal,
reporting on the success of the
1985 UJA/Federation Com-
munity Campaigns, stated that
$598 million had been raised as
of Aug. 28, compared to
$533.5 million pledged by the
same donors last year. This
represented a 12.1 percent
card-for-card increase and a
dollar gain of $64.5 million.
Grass added that a total of
$162.6 million has been raised
for Project Renewal including
$10 million pledged duringthe
'85 Campaign. Project
Renewal is the program
specifically designed to aid
distressed neighborhoods in
Israel by linking them to
American communities.
The national chairman also
announced that Operation
Moses, the special campaign to
raise money for the absorption
of Ethiopian Jewry, has raised
$63.9 million, including
pledges and community
guarantees. Nineteen major
and 29 intermediate com-
munities have already achiev-
ed or exceeded their goals in
record time, Grass said.
Concerning total calendar
year cash collections, he
reported that $237.1 million
has been collected as of
August 31, compared to
5205.3 million at the same time
last year.
Reporting on 1986 Cam-
paign highlights, which began
earlier this year, Grass
Ascribed the recent successful
Major Gifts Invitational Mis-
sion to Eastern Europe and
Israel, under the leadership of
national vice chairman Alan
Shulman. The participants
visited JDC operations in War-
saw, Prague and Bucharest
and met with members of the
remnant Jewish communities.
In Israel, they exchanged
greetings with President
Chaim Herzog and viewed
Israel's miracles in the Arava.
Prime Minister Shimon Peres
and Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin analyzed recent Middle
Eastern events, each from a
different perspective.
Pledges at the caucus came
to $5.5 million, a card-for-card
increase of 23 percent over
last year's gifts by the same
donors. Equally important,
participants promised to
return to their home com-
munities and play active roles
in the '86 Campaign.
18-year-old soldier who was raped
and shot and left for dead in the
Negev six weeks ago is said to be
improving under the physical and
psychological therapy she is
receiving at the Beth Levenstein
Center. The woman, whose identi-
ty is being withheld, remains par-
tially paralyzed from the attack.
The soldier was attacked on
Aug. 16 when a man gave her a
lift in his car while she was hit-
chhiking from her army base near
Beersheba to her home in the
Negev. Police are conducting a
nationwide search for the
assailant. In an effort to get a
positive identification, the police
have issued a portrait compiled by
using an American identikit
system received a few days ago
from the U.S.
The system, said to be the most
efficient now in use, combines
many facial features on separate
transparent plastic sheets which
can be superimposed on each
other to provide a total composite
face. Earlier identifications, in-
cluding that given by the soldier,
described the assailant as between
28 and 30 years of age, of average
height, fair-skinned and husky,
with light brown hair, with
somewhat protruding lower teeth.
He spoke fluent Hebrew.
International Task Force Works To Bolster Israel's Economy
Leading Jewish businessmen

top Israeli executives and

Judging by the statements of
these usually ultracautious
men, the feeling is one of op-
timism. "What we've been do-
ing is relatively unglamorous,"
said Charles Bronfman. "But,
by heaven, it's going to work."
Bronfman, the Canadian-
American businessman, and
Morton Mandel of Cleveland,
Ohio, are two deputy chairmen
of the Task Force, whose
chairman is the veteran U.S.
Jewish leader, philanthropist
and businessman, Max Fisher
of Detroit, Mich.
Fisher said the assembly,
held in Jerusalem, was "the
start of continuous activity."
The Task Force has split into
eight panels, each with high-
powered permanent staff and
pach already embarked on

tion, and Israeli policymakers
hope to establish similar rela-
tions with other major outlets.
Israeli ministers who attend-
ed the deliberations and took
an active part in the Task

Yaacobi, Economic Planning;
and Avraham Sharir, Tourism.

a u.N. Form of Bigotry- Kahanism In Perspective
a wniiiu Kfinirv decisive role in haltinc this -* v^
A recent joint Congressional
resolution has special
relevance for the United Na-
tions General Assembly open-
ing. The resolution urges all
governments to repudiate the
UN's "Zionism equals racism"
decision. It notes that the
United Nations had suffered a
permanent smear on its
reputation by enacting a
"form of bigotry" that is
"totally inconsistent with that
organization's declared pur-
poses and principles."
By a curious coincidence,
this session of the UN is
distinguished by two adver-
saries: the 40th anniversary of
the UN's founding and the
10th anniversary of the in-
famous "Zionism is racism"
resolution. That they stand in
fundamental contradiction to
one another is self-evident.
But will the majority of
delegates recognize the
Earadox, as suggested by the
!.S. Congress, and do
something about it?
Creation of the UN in 1945
was the civilized world's
response to the horrendous
Nazi violence and the
Holocaust. An institution was
erected whose purpose, as
specified in its Charter, was to
prevent the recurrence of bar-
baric violence, terrorism and
But when Zionism was for-
mally defined by the UN
General Assembly on Nov. 10,
1975 as "a form of racism and
racial discrimination," it pro-
vided a sanction for anti-Israel
terror and anti-Jewish hate. It
made little difference that the
major dictionaries of the world
defined Zionism as a form of
national liberation or self-
determination. Orwellian in-
version by a majority of
totalitarian and authoritarian
states made the new definition
From this provocative
resolution flowed a series of
proposals at the UN aimed at
expelling Israel from the world
community. The entire state
was to be treated as the
Nazi Nuremberg laws had
treated Jews as a pariah
A key UN decision two years
ago demanded "all member
states to cease forthwith in-
dividually and collectively, all
dealings with Israel in order
totally to isolate her in all
fields." The same decision
labeled Israel not a "peace-
loving state." The language is
relevant since Article IV of the
UN Charter allowed new
membership only to "other
peace-loving states."
Firm U.S. resistance with
threats of withdrawal from the
Assembly and withholding of
assessments one-quarter of
the UN budget played a
decisive role in halting this
drive. It was Congress that
bolstered and prompted the
tough U.S. posture. A resolu-
tion introduced by Rep. Jack
Kemp (R-N.Y.) and Sen.
Daniel P. Moynihan (D-N.Y.)
called for the strong U.S. ac-
tion should Israel be "expelled,
suspended, denied its creden-
tials or in any manner denied
its rights and privileges ."
Even more dangerous and
incendiary than attempting to
legitimize the ouster of the
Jewish state was the unspoken
purpose of sanctioning anti-
Semitism everywhere. Key
sponsors of the "Zionism is
racism" resolution understood
that anti-Zionism had become
a code-word for Jew-hated.
In the USSR, for example,
the Kremlin used the UN
resolution to justify a massive
propaganda assault against
Jewish tradition and culture as
well as upon Jewry itself. The
virulence of the anti-Semitism,
scarcely disguised by the anti-
Zionist mask, inevitably evok-
ed anxiety in the Jewish
And the USSR was not alone
in finding a sanction for
bigotry. Everywhere
Judophobic canards could be
cloaked in the anti-Zionis garb
provided by the UN. Even the
chambers of the world
organization could now echo
anti-Jewish diatribes with im-
punity. The 1983 General
Assembly session was marked
by especially poisonous vitriol
uttered by the Libyan, Syrian
and Iranian ambassadors.
Then, in late 1984, came a
kind of climax to the racist
obscenities. At a UN con-
ference in Geneva, the
Counselor of the Royal Court
in Saudi Arabia, Maaruf al-
Dawalibi, declared that the
Talmud teaches that "if a Jew
does not drink every year the
blood of a non-Jewish man,
then he will be damned for
eternity." For that reason,, al-
Dawafibi claimed, Jews
regularly kidnap and slaughter
non-Jewish boys.
Which way will the UN go on
this, its 40th brithday? Toward
more "Zionism is racism"
resolutions aimed at making
Israel the pariah and.
therefore, the target of ter-
rorists? And toward resolu-
tions which sanction hate and
violence against the Jew? Or
will it move away from
"Zionism is racism," as urged
by Congress, and toward the
fulfillment of UN. Charter
principles rooted in the strug-
gle against Hitlerism and the
Holoaust? At stake could be
the UN's future as a moral

JERUSALEM For all his
notoriety, Rabbi Meir Kahane
does not represent a threat to
Israeli democracy. Nor is there
any prospect of his ever com-
ing to power. Nonetheless,
Rabbi Kahane's movement
dedicated to the expulsion of
Israel's Arabs and the imposi-
tion of religious fundamen-
talism is a disturbing force
that feeds off the anxieties of a
beleaguered people. Israel has
awakened, however belatedly,
to the danger of Kahanism.
The United States, and par-
ticularly American Jewry, also
have an important stake in
seeing this militant fanaticism
Rabbi Kahane has received
international attention far out
of proportion to his real
strength. Public opinion
surveys show that his Kach
party could receive about 10
Knesset seats (he now holds
one) in the 120-member Parlia-
ment. But polls in Israel have a
poor record on election day.
Far more attractive per-
sonalities, such as Moshe
Dayan and Ezer Weizman,
were misled by over-optimistic
To the extent that Rabbi
Kahane has made inroads, par-
ticularly among the young, he
has done it by offering quick
fixes to very complex pro-
blems. Four decades of war
and political ostracism have
made many Israelis skeptical
that a solution to the Middle
East conflict will ever be
reached. With the exception of
Egypt, Israel is encircled by a
wall of Arab rejectionism that
has hardened, worried and
frustrated many Israelis.
Reinforcing these emotions
is a wave of terrorism against
Israel. The Shiite suicide at-
tacks in Lebanon showed a
new level of Arab fanaticism.
Closer to home, a dozen Israeli
civilians were murdered last
year by local Palestinian
Arabs. In the past, terror was
faceless or foreign bombs in
bus depots, infiltrators and
rockets across the borders
but recently it has assumed a
shockingly personal form.
Israel's economic crisis has
placed new strains on a heavily
burdened society. Not surpris-
ingly, high inflation, austerity
and unemployment have the
potential to make radical and
simplistic dogma seem
Meir Kahane has exploited
these tragedies by trying to
whip up a traumatized
populace into a frenzy of Arab
hatred. That he has had very
limited political success is a
tribute to the basic decency of
most Israelis and the nation's
vibrant democratic institu-
tions. It is, however, troubling
that Rabbi Kahane's
xenophobic views are shared
by more than just the fringe
elements of Israeli society.
Israel no longer minimizes
this right-wing fanaticism and
has taken commendable action
to squelch it. This year the
Knesset passed legislation
banning racist parties from
participating in Knesset elec-
tions. A bill now under con-
sideration would make racial
incitements a felony.
Israeli schools are including
in their curriculums programs
stressing pluralism and
tolerance. The local media,
alert to Rabbi Kahane's
attention-grabbing antics,
have moderated their
coverage of him. And Israel's
elected leaders of the left and
right have publicly denounced
Rabbi Kahane and his
American Jewry also has a
stake in stamping out
Kahanism. First, because Rab-
bi Kahane's views are a distor-
tion of Judaism its
humanism and respect for law
and a perversion of the
Zionist ideal of Jews and
Arabs living together in the
land of Israel. Second, he pro-
vides a pretext for anti-
Semitism and for the canard
that Zionism is racism. Lastly,
the spread of Rabbi Kahane's
extremist views could under-
mine Israel's status as a
democratic ally in the eyes of
its American supporters.
The leadership of American
Jewry has discredited the
Brooklyn-born rabbi in his
native land and continues to
rebuke his racist activity in
Israel. Commitment to
democratic pluralism and civil
rights runs deep in American
Jewry. But this alone may not i
be enough. The United States
government has an important
role to play.
Kahanism is fostered by I

Women ys Division
Presidents' Coffee Offers Preview
Of Jewish Women's Assembly
On Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 10
a.m. the Women's Division of
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County will hold a cof-
fee for the presidents of all the
Jewish women's organizations
in the community.
This event, which will take
place at Lowe's Auditorium in
the Morse Geriatric Center, is
designed primarily to inform
the organizational leaders of
the plans for the upcoming
Jewish Women's Assembly, to
be held on Sunday, Nov. 24.
Rabbi Alan Sherman, Jewish
Federation Chaplain and direc-
tor of the Community Rela-
tions Council, will be the
special guest speaker.
"We hope that the leaders
who attend the coffee will
return to their groups full of
enthusiasm for the Jewish
Women's Assembly, which is
the largest, most exciting
community-wide program for
Jewish women in the coun-
ty," said Margot Brozost.

ground armored assault from
Syria, but the anti-aircraft
missile systems Jordan is seek-
ing will do little to protect
itself from such a danger.
Wrong Signal
An arms sale at this time
would send the wrong signal to
the Arab world. Jordan has
not been responsive to recent
U.S. peace efforts in the
region. It is doubtful that sell-
ing sophisticated arms will
convince King Hussein to talk
Specious Arguments
The argument sources in the
administration have advanced
for an arms sale to Jordan,
that King Hussein (some even
claim, Yasir Arafat), has mov-
ed closer toward peace with
Israel, is specious. Assistant
Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and South Asian Af-
fairs, Richard W. Murphy, has
been shuttling to the Middle
East for several months now
to explore the possibility of
joint Jordanian-Palestinian
peace talks leading to direct
negotiations with Israel but
with no success.
Although King Hussein has
issued a number of statements
which might suggest a real in-
terest in entering the peace
process, it is abundantly clear
that the Jordanian monarch
has not abandoned his an-
tipathy toward direct face-to-
face peace negotiations with
Israel or even toward recogni-
tion of Israel's right to exist.
The king's insistence on a
vaguely defined international
conference is no more than
another ploy to avoid direct
talks with Israel.
One might understand the
argument that the United
States would like to maintain
friendly relations with Jordan
and that it is sincerely in-
terested in encouraging King
Hussein to enter bilateral
... i I.' i
peace talks with Israel. But
that in no way justifies the sale
of lethal weapons to a country
which remains in a state of war
with our ally, Israel.
Strong Congressional
A significant majority of the
U.S. Senate (73) has already
gone on record in opposition to
a major new arms sale to Jor-
dan by co-sponsoring a resolu-
tion offered by Senators Ed-
ward Kennedy (D., Mass.) and
John Heinz (R., Pa.). Both
Houses of Congress have pass-
ed an amendment to the
Foreign Aid Authorization bill
mandating that no U.S. arms
be sold to Jordan without a
certification that King Hussein
is publicly committed to enter
into direct negotiations with

Co-chairs Blossom Cohen
and Arlene Simon expect a
large attendance at the coffee,
which last year attracted
about sixty women leaders.
Noting that the Presidents'
Coffee provides other impor-
tant opportunities, Mrs. Cohen
observed, "The coffee is the

from Jewish women's
organizations can get together

to exchange ideas and common
"It's important for these
leaders to know what other

accomplish. Open dialogue and
cooperation between these
women are essential for the
improvement of life within the

In Coalition's Side
Continued from Page 1
Egypt could lead to a serious
deterioration in peaceful rela-
tions. "Life does not stand
still. Where there is no pro-
gress, there is regression,"
Navon, a former President of
Israel and a powerful voice in
the Labor Party, warned.
The latest in the long series
of crises which have shaken
the uneasy partnership bet-
ween Labor and Likud follow-
ed Egypt's agreement to a for-
mula for tackling the Taba
dispute. It calls for conciliation
which would automatically
give way to binding arbitration
If the conciliation process fail-
ed, after a fixed number of
weeks, to produce an agree-
ment between the two
Both conciliation and ar-
bitration are provided for in
the 1979 Israeli-Egyptian
peace reaty to settle disputes
which can't be resolved
through more routine forms of
diplomatic negotiations. The
new formula would involve
Israeli, Egyptian, and
American officials, the latter
presenting ideas for com-
promise which the two other
parties would have to accept if
they were to become a binding
solution. This is a form of
Arbitration would differ in
that the two contesting parties
have to agree in advance that
the arbiter's ruling, whatever
it is, constitutes a quasi-judi-
cial decision on the merits of
the case and is therefore bind-
ing on them. An arbiter's deci-
sion in a border dispute would
clearly tavor the claims ot one
side over the other, precluding
a compromise solution. The
arbitration formula evolved as
a face-saving device for Likud
leader Yitzhak Shamir,
Foreign Minister and Deputy
Premier, who has insisted
from the outset that Taba be
resolved by conciliation, entail-
ing compromise. It emerged
from recent intensive con-
sultations between the Direc-
tor General of the Prime
Minister's Office, Gen. (Res.)
Avraham Tamir, and Egyptian
leaders, including President
Hosni Mubarak. Their
meetings were held in Cairo.
But Shamir spurned that as
"a fig leaf." At the Inner
Cabinet meeting he argued
that under the proposed for-
mula, while Israeli, Egyptian
and American officials would
be ostensibly engaged in con-
ciliation, others would already
be drafting the documents of
"This is not conciliation. It is
merely using the term concilia-
tion as a cover-up" for pro-
ceeding with arbitration,
Shamir said. "Why should we
fool ourselves?" he asked. He

The country's avid birdwat-

Air Force officials, have ac-
cumulated data which are help-

smaller "active flyers," are too
heavy to migrate across the
Mediterranean by flapping
their wings oversea for an en-
tire day.
Yossi Leshem, head of the
Israeli Society for the Protec-
tion of Nature Raptor Infor-
mation Center, and the civil-
ian director of the Air Force's
bird-watching program, ex-
plained to the Times that
"passive flyers" fly over land
for two reasons. First, they

must land each night to rest;
second, their successful migra-
tion depends on their utiliza-
tion of the warm air currents,
known as thermals, which are
produced only over land.
The birds use the thermals
by entering the swirling spiral
of warm air and rising to the
top of the column and then
gliding to the bottom of the
next thermal to repeat the pro-
cess. (See diagram.)
As Mr. Leshem and the Air
Force compared notes, they
discovered that over one
million raptors alone were
migrating over Israel each fall
and spring, and that each
species was moving along the
Air Force officials then
declared certain areas "Bird
Plagued Zones" (the birdwat-
chers prefer to call them "Bird
Protected Zones"), and the Air
Force agreed to finance Mr.
Leshem and his birdwatchers
in their attempts to acquire
more specific data regarding
the exact routes used by the
birds, the altitudes at which
they fly and the precise dates
on which they migrate.
The birdwatchers now pro-
vide an early-warning system
for the Air Force commanders.
This past spring, for example,
a scheduled training mission
was postponed because Mr.
Leshem spotted a large
number of raptors in the air
where the planned flights were
to take place.
This unlikely cooperation
between civilian conserva-
tionists and the military has
resulted in important benefits
for both groups. The Air Force
has been getting the rrtostl-safe
training time from its firnited
air space, and the birdwat-
chers have been able to pro-
tect, identify and study the 475
species of birds migrating
through Israel every year.

uneasy partnership between
Labor and Likud followed Egypt's
agreement to a formula for tackl-
ing the Taba dispute. It calls for
conciliation which would
automatically give way to binding
arbitration if the conciliation pro-
cess failed, after a fixed number of
weeks, to produce, an agreement
between the two countries.
Both conciliation and arbitra-
tion are provided for in the 1979
Israeli-Egyptian peace reaty to
settle disputes which can't be
resolved through more routine
forms of diplomatic negotiations.
The new formula would involve
Israeli, Egyptian, and American
officials, the latter presenting
ideas for compromise which the
two other parties wuld have to ac-
cept if they were to become a bin-
ding solution. This is a form of
ARBITRATION would differ in
that the two contesting parties
have to agree in advance that the
arbiter's ruling whatever it is,
costitutes a quasi-judicial decision
on the merits of the case and is
therefore binding on them. An ar-
biter's d Dcision in a border dispute
would clearly favor the claims of
one side over the other,
precluding a compromise solution.
The conciliation-leading-to-
arbitration formula evolved as a
face-saving device for Likud
leader Yitzhak Shamir, Foreign
Minister and Deputy Premier,
who has insisted from the outset
that Taba be resolved by concilia-
tion, entailing compromise.
It emerged from recent inten-
sive consultations between the
Director General of the Prime
Minister's Office, Gen. (Res.)
Avraham Tamir, and Egyptian
leaders, including President Hosni
Mubarak. Their meetings were
held in Cairo.
But Shamir spurned that as "a
fig leaf." At the Inner Cabinet
meeting he argued that under the
proposed formula, while Israeli,
Egyptian and American officials
would be ostensibly engaged in
conciliation, others would already
be drafting the documents of
"THIS IS NOT conciliation. It
is merely using the term concilia-
tion as a cover-up" for proceeding
with arbitration, Shamir said.
"Why should we fool ourselves?
he asked. He said it was "regret-
table" that there are internal dif-
ferences within Israel over Taba.
He maintained that Labor's sup-
port of the Egyptian position only
encouraged Egypt to reject the
Likud position.
Underlying those internal dif-
ferences are diametrically oppos-
ed views over how Israel should
deal with Egypt. The Labor view,
frequently and forcefully
presented by Peres, is that a flexi-
ble approach over Taba a tiny
strip of beach on the Gulf of
Aqaba which both countries agree
is of little or no strategic or
economic value would open the
way to the speedy resolution of far
more important issues outstan-
ding between Jerusalem and
Cairo, such as normalization of
relations and the return of
Egypt's Ambassador to Tel Aviv.
The Likud view is that anything
other than a tough stance toward
Egypt would compromise Israel's
credibility and sacrifice its prin-
ciples. Ariel Sharon, the Minister
of Commerce and Industry,
Likud's most outspoken hardliner,
warned at the Inner Cabinet
meeting against any sign of
"weakness" by Israel.
Shamir insisted that the Deputy
Premier was setting the tone of
Likud on the issue. Labor sources
charged that not Shamir but
Sharon dictated Likud policy.
Shamir, in one of his radio inter-
views, said he did not reject ar-
bitration out-of-hand but needed

The End Of A Season And The Beginning Of A Cycle
Simhat Torah, which
translates literally as "rejoic-
ing of the Torah," concludes
the celebration of Sukkot. It is
primarily a synagogue-
centered observance (which
means, in practical terms,
festival meals and blessings at
home and major celebratory
activity in shul). The annual
reading of the Torah scroll, at
the rate of one portion
(parashah. or sidra in Hebrew)
per week, is completed and im-
mediately begun again.
During talmudic times the
emphasis was not on Simhat
Torah but on Sh'mini Atzeret.
Distinctive Simhat Torah
celebrations began to develop
during the gaonic period, when
the one-year cycle of Torah
reading (as opposed to the
Palestinian three-year cycle)
gained wide acceptance. Ur-
banization also played its part
in shifting the focus of the
The final parashah in
Deuteronomy was the
Sh'mini Atzeret: Praise For Him
Who Causes Rain To Fall
Traditional Jews around the
world observe the last two
days of Sukkot as Sh'mini
Atzeret and Simhat Torah. In
Israel, and among Reform
Jews, only one day is
celebrated. It combines the
features of both. The word
atzeret means "to hold back"
or "to tarry." This eighth day
of the festival is a kind of
lingering goodbye to a very
special holiday. The
characteristic features of Suk-
kot are omitted, however. We
are finished for this year with
the sukkah and the ceremonies
involving the lulav and etrog.
Now comes the prayer for
As Rabbi Yitz Greenberg
writes in a pamphlet on Suk-
kot, "The Land of Israel is not
rich in water resources; it has
no river that gives it basic fer-
tility as the Nile does for
Egypt. Therefoe, rain and
water supply was always
tenuous, and greatly ap-
preciated when present. The
inclusion of willows-of-the-
brook in four species of Sukkot
is connected with thanksgiving
for water. For this reason, a
special prayer for rain was in-
serted in the holiday services.
Since the Israeli rain season
starts approximately at the
Sukkot holiday season, it was
the appropriate time to pray
for rain.
"Since rain disrupts the
mitzvah of sitting in the Suk-
kah, however, it was decided
to hold off the prayer for rain
until the last day of the holi-
day," until Sh'mini Atzeret.
The prayer isn't a direct re-
quest for rain, either, but
rather praise of "Him who
causes the rain to fall."
Specific prayers for rain begin
about two months later "when
the pilgrims that had come
from distant countries to
Jerusalem for the festival were
assumed to have reached their
There is (or, more accurate-
ly, was) also a specific water
celebration, simhat bayt ha-
sho-ay-vah, on the days
preceding Sh'mini Atzeret. As
Strassfeld writes in Jewish
Holidays, "During Sukkot in
temple times, there was a
ritual performed daily con-
nected with the sacrificial cult.
This was nisukh ha-mayim

prescribed reading for this day
as early as the talmudic period.
Later, it became customary to
begin the new cycle of
readings as well. So on Simhat
Torah we read not only the end
of Di'va-reem, but also the
opening verses of Bi'ray-sheet
(Genesis). This was done in
order to "refute Satan," who
might otherwise have claimed
that the Jews were happy
because they had finished the
Torah. "No way," we are say-
ing to our critics. This is a
"beginning again" party!
In general, what you can ex-
pect to happen in the
synagogue is the following:
During the service, all of the
Torah scrolls (sif-ray torah)
will be taken out of the ark (ah-
rone kodesh). They will be car-
ried in hakafot (processions)
around the synagogue by the
men (and women) whom the
congregation wishes to honor.
The procession will include
(but should not be limited to)
the rabbi and cantor and the
children of the congregation
who will follow the bearers of
the Torah scrolls (either in an
orderly or in a disorderly
fashion, depending on the kind
of decorum acceptable in in-
dividual synagogues). Special
Simhat Torah songs and folk
songs that have Torah as their
theme are sung during the
hakafot. The number of
hakafot will vary (by congrega-
tion) from one to seven, which
is the traditional number. In
most congregations, the
children are issued Simhat
Torah flags just prior to the
beginning of the processions.
In some places, apples adorn
the top of each flag. (In pre-
fire safety days, lighted
candles were often stuck in the
hollowed-out cores.) In other
synagogues, it is traditional
for children to bring in home-
made flags (with all the atten-
dant sense of competitiveness
and pride).
In many congregations, a
feature of the celebration is
the consecration of the young
children who are entering
religious school for the first
time. The calendrical jux-
taposition of the early part of
the school year with a holiday
celebrating the reading of the
Torah and, therefore, the im-
portance of learning to Jewish
life, no doubt underlies the
choice of this occasion for such
a ceremony.
After the hakafot, when the
place has quieted down a little,
it is time for the main business
of Simhat Torah (unfortunate-
ly, often an anti-climax for kids
after the excitement that has

preceded it). Two Torah scrolls
are used, and there are special
aliyot (people called to read
the Torah or chant the bless-
ings). In some traditional con-
gregations, every man present
is invited to come up and read
and the concluding portion
from Deuteronomy (33:1-29) is
repeated as many times as
necessary! In other places,

for all the children under the
age of bar/bat mitzvah to be

cluding aliyah. This custom is

heads, they repeat the

in this important position,"
Mica said. "The United Na-
tions was founded on the
most noble vision of interna-
tional cooperation and world
peace. Notwithstanding the
organization's deep flaws, we
must never lose sight of its
guiding principles. It goes
without saying we stand a
better chance of correcting
its deficiencies from within
than without."
Mica said his goals at the
UN are threefold. The first
priority, he said, is taking a
i hard look at the financial
burden UN membership im-
poses on the United States.
Currently, this country con-
tributes 25 percent of the
organization's operating
budget. As chairman of the
Foreign Affairs subcommit-
tee that authorizes U.S. con-
tributions to the UN, Mica is
a strong proponent of recent
legislation limiting contribu-
tions to 20 percent by 1987
unless the U.S. is accorded a
stronger voice in budget
"The UN budget has tripl-
ed in the past 10 years," Mica
said. "It's hard to argue with
frustrated American tax-
Forest Dedicated
To Moroccan
A Jewish National Fund
forest of 10,000 trees has been
dedicated in the Moroccan
capital's Ramot neighborhood
in honor of King Mohammed
v V. who died in 1961. The
former king is revered by
North African Jews for
courageously refusing their
deportation to Nazi Germany
during World War II. Moham-
med is the father of the reign-
ing monarch Hassan II.
The forest is being planted
by the Jewish National Fund
at the initiative of the Associa-
tion of North African Im-
migrants in Israel. Former
Moroccan Jews now living in
Israel began six years ago to
think oi an appropriate
memorial for the king, who in-
sisted that all his subjects were
fcqual and refused Jewish
eportation. Some of the
oroccan Jews discussed the
project with the present king,
who reportedly also has a
favorable attitude towards his
Jewish subjects, despite cen-
sure from fellow Arab leaders
on policies relating to Jews
and Israel. The Moroccan Jews
proposed that a forest bearing
his name be planted in
Jerusalem, and, according to
JNF, the king silently ac-
quiesced. Five pine and
cypress trees are to be taken
by former Moroccan Jews to
Hassan's royal courtyard for
The Immigrant's Associa-
tion raised about $10,000 in
Israel, France, and Canada.
Contributions also came from
former Moroccan Jews and
various enterprises. The
money was donated to JNF,
the agency responsible for af-
forestation and land develop-
ment in Israel.
Congressman Dan Mica
payers who feel they're sub-
sidizing an institution which
on its good days is often ir-
relevant and on its bad days
is overtly anti-American."
His second priority, Mica
said, is steering the UN agen-
da away from frequent at-
tacks on the United States
and Israel in favor of areas of
legitimate concern to the
American people. One such
area is terrorism. Although a
UN committee on terrorism
has existed for some time,
Mica said it has been
powerless to discourage or
limit the state-sponsored ter-
rorism of some UN members.
Finally, Mica said he will
seek a position on the UN's
international trade commit-
tee. Mica is a ranking
member of the Foreign Af-
fairs subcommittee on inter-
national economic policy and
"Congress is about to em-
bark on a trade war unless
we convince other nations to
open their markets to U.S.
goods and stop dumping their
own products in this coun-
try," Mica said. "That war
can be averted, but only if we
effectively use every oppor-
tunity to reassure our allies
and trading partners. The
UN should be such a forum."
Mica is one of two Foreign
Affairs Committee members
named to the UN delegation
by President Reagan. The se-
cond is U.S. Rep. Gerald
Solomon (R..N.Y.). Every
year, the president appoints
a congressional member of
each party to the delegation.
Steven Kustin's unusual bar mitzvah request has resulted in

Rabbis David Shapiro, Morris Silberman
and Joel Chazin witness the installation of
Rabbi Richard Rocklin by Rabbi William
Marder, as Janet Schwartz, honorary presi-
dent and founder of the Lake Worth Jewish
Center, looks on.
Rabbi Rocklin Installed At Lake Worth Jewish Center
"We, the Congregation of
the Lake Worth Jewish
Center, do hereby install you,
Richard Rocklin, as our Rabbi.
We pray that G-d bless and
strengthen you in promoting
Jewish learning. May G-d
guide you in your efforts on
behalf of the Lake Worth
Jewish Center, this communi-
ty and K'lal Yisroel. On our
part, we do solemly dedicate
ourselves to walk with you in
unity of spirit, in love and in
peace, along the path of Torah
on which you will guide us."
With these words Rabbi
Richard K. Rocklin was of-
ficially installed as spiritual
leader of the newly formed
Conservative synagogue in
suburban Lake Worth, during
a dignified and joyous installa-
tion and reception, on Sunday
evening, Sept. 8, at the Poin-
ciana Golf and Racquet Club.
The proceedings were at-
tended by many of Palm Beach
County's rabbis, along with
clergy of other fans, to
welcome their colleague to our
community. In addition to the
clergy, Florida State Senator
Don Childers, Mayors David
Hinsa, Lake Worth, and James
Quigley, Greenacres City,
members of the media and
other dignitaries, joined over
400 congregants and guests in
extending warm greetings to
Rabbi Rocklin, his wife, Diane,
and their family.
Mrs. Janet Schwartz, hon-
orary president and founder
of the Lake Worth Jewish
Center, was hostess and
program coordinator for the
ceremonies, which began with
a stirring Torah processional,
with Rabbi and Mrs. Rocklin,
accompanied by the Center's
entire board of directors.
Beautiful music was provided
by Goldie Bernstein's Lee
Vassill Hadassah Chorus.
Following a welcome
message by Janet Schwartz,
Rabbi Joel Chazin, TemDle
Emanu-El, Palm Beach, gave
the Invocation. Murray
Milrod, president of the
synagogue, added his
greetings on behalf of the Con-
regation. Rabbi Morris
ilberman, Temple B'nai
Jacob, Palm Springs, led a
responsive reading segment
with the assemblage.
Other speakers were Harold
Wishna, representing United
Synagogue, and Pastor
Rodney Johnson, St. Luke's
United Methodist Church.
Reverend John Hoyt of the
Free Methodist Church joined
Pastor Johnson for the Chris-
tian clergy, but did not speak
from the bima.
Rabbi William Marder, from
Temple Beth David in Palm
Beach Gardens, served as the
installing officer. Following

mal ceremonies closed with the
