the JCCampus, will broaden
its horizons beginning next
month as the new Steering

Synopsis: State
measure came after the Senate
rejected a more stringent ver-
sion proposed by Sen. Jesse
Helms (R-N.C.) and modified
slightly by Sen. Charles Gras-
sley (R-Iowa).
The Helms amendment to
the State Department Appro-
priations Bill, which the Bush
administration and at least
two Jewish groups strongly
opposed, was rejected by a
vote of 75-23.
Helms cast the lone vote
against the substitute amend-
ment, which was introduced by
Senate Majority leader George
Mitchell (D-Maine), Minority
Leader Robert Dole (R-Kan.)
and four other senators.
The original Helms measure
would have barred the United
States from talking with any
PLO official, unless the presi-
dent certified that the individ-
ual "did not directly partici-
pate in, conspire in or was an
accessory to the planning or
execution of terrorist activity
which resulted in the death,
injury or kidnapping of an
American citizen."

Steering Committee is about
raising money for the JCCam-
pus," agreed Patti and Larry
Abramson, Chairs of the
Steering Committee. "We
want to reach people who live
and work in Palm Beach
County all year round. There
are a lot of families here who
will be using the Campus when
it's built," they explained. "If
we reach them now, during the
building stages, they can help
us get it built."
Building the Jewish Com-
munity Campus of the Palm
Beaches depends solely on fun-
draising at this point. Since
the Campus campaign began
three years ago, in excess of
$7.5 million has been pledged.
Approximately $14 million is
the final goal.
The Steering Committee,
formed in May, is divided into
four sub-committees: medical
and health providers, Chaired

Do Not Forsake Me
How To Watch Over Far-Away Folks
We are the "sandwich gen-
Those of us who are in our
mid-30s to early 50s we who
have been described as the
"baby boomers" or the "Yup-
pies are "sandwiched" in
between our children, who are
increasingly older before they
are on their own; and our
parents, who live longer and
fuller lives than parents in
days gone by.
Young people go to college
and, often, three to five years
of graduate school. They take
longer to establish themselves
in careers. Marriage, which
only half a generation ago took
place in the early 20s, is now
delayed until the late 20s, mid-
30s, early 40s, or not at all.
Children are being born to
much older parents, if at all.
Because of economic condi-
tions and the high costs of
living, adult children often
move back with parents. Par-
ents who used to know that
their children would be "on
their own" by their early to
mid-20s, now often support
up in one or more places, go to
college somewhere else, gra-
duate school in another place,
take our jobs in different cities
and finally settle to rear our
own children in a place that
may be far away from where
we started. We may live in
California, but our parents are
"back east" in New York,
Florida or Chicago. We may
live in Philadelphia, but our
parents have retired to Ari-
So what happens when a
parent or an elderly aunt or
a beloved grandparent
needs our support and care,
but we live a continent away,
even unable to be sure that
correct care is being given.
A newly-formed organiza-
tion can give us the peace of
mind that we need.
The Elder Support Network

Association of Jewish Family
and Childrens Agencies. Based
in Kendall Park, New Jersey,

The "sandwich generation" spends more
time than any previous generation being
parents to our children, and have the
additional task of being parents to our
financially and/or emotionally
- their children for longer
periods of time.
Conversely, our parents,
whose expected life span used
to be the late 60s or early 80s
at best, are now living to 90
and beyond. Improvements in
medical care, financial condi-
tions, and living conditions
have made life spans much
longer. Yet, longer-living par-
ents often mean additional
care and support. Failing
health, economic circum-
stances and emotional loneli-
ness often require adult chil-
dren to come to the aid of
parents in need.
The "sandwich generation"
spends more time than any
previous generation being par-
ents to our children, and have
the additional task of being

We love our parents, we care
about them and their welfare,
we want to care for them when
need arises. Yet, it is often a
difficult, emotion-laden task
that is complicated by our par-
ents' pride and independence,
which we do not want to
violate. And it is a task that
sometimes seems impossible,
when the parent in need of
| help and the child with desire
to help live many miles apart.
j We are no longer a geogra-
a. phically close-knit community.
i A generation or two ago, par-
si ents and children lived in the

The Jewish Family & Chil-
dren's Service of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County began it's own "Elder
Connection" in September
1987 and has worked closely
with over 250 older adults and
their families since then.
"This is a very comprehen-
sive program," explained
Susan Fleischer, Department
of Geriatric Services and Elder
Connection Coordinator.
"Many families have told us
that they don't know what
they would have done without
After the JF&CS receives a
call from a concerned family
member living far away, one of
five care coordinators on staff
will begin working out a com-
prehensive care plan with the
family and offer information
and assistance about the local
services available.
Plans differ from place to
place, but some of the things
the Connection can arrange
are: home-delivered meals,
home aides, electronic emer-
gency monitoring, local trans-
portation and medical, physi-
cal, psychological and financial
services. A sliding fee scale is a
basic part of every Jewish
Family Service's philosophy,
so that services are accessible
to everyone and surely cost
less than flying back and forth
to work out the details and
provide the services yourself.
"Our primary goal is to ena-
ble these older adults to
remain living independently
for as long as possible," Ms.
Fleischer said. "Our job is to
help assist the family by coor-
dinating all the help necessary
to achieve this goal."
The Yom Kippur prayer
pleads with God, "Do not for-
sake me in the time of my old
age." We, who are God's part-
ners, have the sacred obliga-
tion to serve our beloved
elderly in their time of need.
Now, the Elder Support Net-
work provides us with the pro-
fessional expertise and the
rachmmos, the compassion, to
help us do the job. The Kehi-
lah, the community, reaches
out in love to help us give the
respect, honor and care that

munity, throughout the United
States and Canada, is enriched

and much needed organization
helps us serve and love in the
most effective way possible.

Passage To Freedom Campaign
United Jewish Appeal's Pas-
sage to Freedom Special Cam-
paign for Soviet Jewry has
raised $31.4 million to date,
representing 42 percent of the
annual goal of $75 million. The
announcement was made by
Marvin Lender of New Haven,
National Chairman of this spe-
cial campaign.
"The campaign is only four
months old," said Lender "and
we are doing well. I am excited
by the progress we have made
and look to do even better in
the months ahead. More than
120 American Jewish commu-
nities across the country have
been holding special meetings
and events to raise funds for
their brothers and sisters who
are leaving the Soviet Union in
search of freedom and dignity.
Funds are used to provide
housing, maintenance, medical
care, job retraining, education
cuiu a wide range ol humani-
tarian services. Current esti-
mates are that 40,000 to
50,000 Jews will leave the
Soviet Union in 1989 although
the gates could be closed at
any time. In the five months
since January 1, 1989, 17,797
Jews left the Soviet Union."
As an example of an out-
standing Passage to Freedom
fundraising event. Lender
cited a dinner for major donors
at the home of Mona Acker-
man in New York City
recently, which was hosted by
UJA Honorary National Chair-
man Max Fisher of Detroit.
The guest of honor was former
Secretary of State George
Shultz, who discussed Ameri-
can-Soviet relations and urged
the American Jewish commun-
ity "to get its fellow Jews out
now while the doors are
With 60 guests present,
pledges came to $2.74 million.
An additional $1.33 million
was secured from individuals
who were solicited for the
meeting but were unable to
attend. Total pledges were
$4.07 million with several don-
ors doubling their previous
Passage to Freedom gifts.
These contributions are in
addition to those for the regu-
lar UJA/Federation Campaign
which provides humanitarian
assistance to the people of
Israel and in 33 countries
around the world.
Support for the Passage to

How To
Select A Temple
Annual Learning Fair
By Richard G. Shugarman, M.D.
Chair, Synagogue
Federation Relations Committee
Most people are not
extremely methodical about
selecting a temple, but there
are several things you can
examine that may help you
make the right shiddoch.
In the first place, temples
offer a variety of basic, essen-
tial services: religious school,
daily minyan, bar and bat mitz-
vah lessons for children or
adults, a brotherhood, youth
groups, sisterhood, adult edu-
cation, etc. Make certain that
the services you require are
available then investigate their
Location may also be a signi-
ficant consideration, especially
if you do not drive or don't
drive at night, or if your chil-
dren will have to walk or ride a
bicycle to religious school.
While congregations today
are generally open and flexible
in many, areas, it is still helpful
to decide whether you feel
most comfortable in an Ortho-
dox, Conservative or Reform
synagogue. Within these
movements, each congrega-
tion retains its own flavor and
personality and there are often
more areas of overlap than of
In general, Reform congre-
gations are commonly involved
in social action and community
conscience projects as well as
interfaith relations; Orthodox
synagogues are concerned
with upholding Torah and Jew-
ish law and sustaining and
perpetuating Jewish tradition;
and Conservative congrega-
tions usually combine aspects
of Orthodoxy and Reform.
Thorough investigation of a
synagogue's philosophy on
issues such as divorce, adop-
tion, intermarriage, holiday
ritual, prayer and the role of
women in lifecycle celebra-
tions will help you decide
which synagogue would be
most supportive of your own
personal or family require-
ments. For example, if you or
someone close to you is
involved in an interfaith marri-
age, how will the issue be dealt
with in the congregation you
plan to join? It's an important
To help delineate the philo-
sophies of the various congre-
gations, the national syna-
gogue movements sponsor
platforms and set policies.
Reform takes its direction
from the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations; Con-
servative synagogues are gen-
erally affiliated with the
United Synagogue and the
Union of Orthodox Jewish
Congregations encompasses
most orthodox shuls.
Plan to visit the synagogue
you are considering on as
many occasions as possible: for
Shabbat, a weekday service,
on the High Holy days, during
religious school hours or for a
membership meeting, before
making up your mind. The
warmth of the congregation,
the dignity of the service, the
wisdom oi the rabbi, the voice
of the cantor, the presence or
absence of organ and/or choir
music, the presence or absence
of a mechitza, etc. will help you
form an educated opinion and
possibly stir some latent mem-
ories and emotions buried
within you.
Finally, all congregations
will make special financial
arrangements for those who
need them. It is more import-
ant, however, that the syna-
gogue's services and philoso-
phies meet your own than
whether you can strike a good

Jerusalem From Inside
A Garrison
Remnants of a Roman flight
of stairs uncovered recently in
the moat outside David's
Tower in Jerusalem indicate
that King Herod's Palace was
probably at that site. Until
then, little evidence had been
found to substantiate Jose-
phus' contemporary account.
That stairway will soon be
incorporated into the capital's
new museum of the history of
Jerusalem at the David's
Tower-Citadel complex, adja-
cent to the Old City's Jaffa
Opened in April, the
museum spans 3,000 years of
Jerusalem's history, dating
back from the earliest refer-
ence to the Canaanite
"ursalim" on the 14th century
BCE Tel el-Amarna tablet.
Each period of the city's
story is housed in a separate
room the medieval halls of
the Ottoman Garrison at the
Citadel. And through the well-
written concise texts and ea-
sily visible time charts, the
visitor gets a clear feeling of
the chronological sequence of
Jerusalem's builders and inva-
ders, expulsions and returns.
In fact, clarity is the cat-
chword for the museum's mul-
timedia exhibits planned by a
team headed by James Gard-
ner, designer of the Diaspora
Museum at Tel Aviv Univer-
There are dioramas and
videos, a hologram, life-sized
models and tiny replicas but
almost no authentic material.
Jerusalem's Israel and Roths-
child museums are bursting
with archeological artifacts,
whereas this museum aims to
show life as it was during each
stage of the city's develop-
ihe clothes and weapons oi
the tiny figures in the diorama
of Sennacherib's abortive
siege of Jerusalem in the
seventh century BCE were
painstakingly based on Assyr-
ian reliefs of the period, while
the diorama of the grand Hero-
dian stairway leading to the
Second Temple closely follows
Professor Binyamin Mazar's
excavations made after the
1967 war.
There is something for every
visitor to this museum from
schoolchildren who delight in
the vivid dioramas, to tourists
unfamiliar with the city's his-
tory. Even history buffs can
learn from the details of the
models and maps.
Some of the exhibits employ
clever visual tricks to illustrate
the city's complicated history.
A model of a Moslem seminary
is transformed into a crusader
convent and back again as two
demure nuns slide onstage
replacing a groups of students
of Islam, while the crescent
moon over the building
changes into a cross.
The central feature in the
early Islamic room, situated in
the Ottoman mosque whose
minaret graces the Old City's
skyline, is a model of the gol-
den-domed Dome of the Rock
as it was when it was built in
the seventh century.
Moslem visitors are sur-
prised to see that the walls
were originally covered in gold
and green mosaics. Today's
blue tiles were only affixed in
the sixteenth century.
The full two-hour tour of the
museum, accompanied if one
wants by a dramatic taped
guide, takes in the exhibition
halls, a climb to the top of
Herod's Phasael Tower for a
spectacular view over the Old
City, and a walk along the
Citadel's crenelated walls.
The visitor can also wander
through the archeological
remains within the beautifully
landscaped Citadel grounds to
see remnants of Jerusalem's
Hasmonean Walls, a cache of
stone cannon balls and
remains of Herodian and
Byzantine buildings.
The museum was financed
by a $10.5 million dollar grant
from Vivien Duffield-Clore of
the Clore Foundation, who
brought together experts from
Britain and Israel to tell the
story of Jerusalem.

Moves Forward
A never-ending series of unexpected events
has lessened, but not killed, hopes for the
Israeli proposal for holding elections in the
administered territories.
The tragic murder of 15 Jews on a Tel Aviv
to Jerusalem bus punctuated the right wing of
Likud's victory over Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir. Shamir bowed to pressure from Ariel
Sharon and his allies in his party's caucus, and
sent Labor packing to leave the coalition
But a combination of the Bush Administra-
tion and American Jewish organizations
delayed, at least, the derailment suggested by
Finance Minister and Deputy Premier Shimon
Then Sharon called for the killing of PLO
chairman Arafat, and Labor's more dovish
factor renewed its call for withdrawal from
the government.
Secretary of State James Baker turned
down Israel's call for ending, or at least
scaling down, official American dialogue with
the PLO.
Shamir pressed Foreign Minister Moshe
Arens to seek Palestinians who would discuss
the possible voting in the West Bank (Judea
and Samaria) and Gaza.
But Arens found that the PLOs threats to
kill any Arabs caught talking with the Israelis
about the elections short-circuited his mission.
All of this leaves the Shamir initiative still
breathing, but in urgent need of new momen-
If President Bush truly wants to move
towards peace, and to forestall Arab and
Soviet pressure for an international confer-
ence, he must move boldly to persuade willing
Palestinian partners in pre-election discus-
sions. And Arafat must implement this step.
Only this step will keep the initiative alive.
Of course, Sharon's assassination call
doesn't help, and Shamir must silence or tone
him down as "payment" for his own conses-
sions within Likud.
As Syria continues on a war footing and Iraq
regains strength following the end of its
fighting with Iran, Israel must maintain its
guard at the same time it seeks peace.

U.S. Talks With Terrorist
Mindboggling. The U.S.
Ambassador to Tunisia holds
secret meetings with the man
responsible for the assassina-
tion of the U.S. Ambassador to
Sudan to discuss making peace
with Israelis who Abu Iyad
(a.k.a., Salah Khalaf) has made
a career of terrorizing. What is
the Administration thinking
Abu Iyad, Arafat's number
two, is the terrorist par excel-
lence. He masterminded the
Munich masacre, then boasted
of deceiving the West about
Black September's true ori-
gins the PLO. Ironically, the
story broke about Ambassador
Pelletreau's meetings with
Abu Iyad the same day it was
reported the terrorist was
indicted in Italy for allegedly
supplying arms to the Red
Brigades. The United States
once accused the Italians of
coddling terrorists; now the
positions appear to be
Beyond the symbolism of
meeting with one of the
world's foremost terrorists
and setting back our counter-
terrorism policy light-years,
the episode raised grave
doubts about the Administra-
tion's credibility and the direc-
tion of its Middle East policy.
Top Administration officials
now say Ambassador Pelle-
treau was always free to talk
with any members of the PLO,
including Yasir Arafat! They
argue that none of the Admin-
istration's previous state-
ments explicitly ruled out such
discussions. The perception,
however, on Capitol Hill,
within the Jewish community,
and the American public is
much different.
Press frustration was evi-
dent at the June 30 State
Department briefing when one
reporter asked how Secretary
of State James Baker could tell
the National Press Club on
June 8 that the U.S. was not
having secret meetings with
the PLO. Spokesperson Mar-
garet Tutwiler said if anyone
asked: "Is Ambassador Pelle-
treau meeting with other indi-
viduals?" she would have said
yes. The reporter responded:
"We ask all the time if there
are any meetings coming up
with the PLO."
Tutwiler claimed the meet-
ings were "private" not
secret. She was then asked if
the State Department would
provide a list of who the meet-
ings were with, but she said
she could not. The incredulous
reporter could not understand
Tutwiler's logic whereby she
asserted that the meetings
were not secret, but could not
reveal with whom the Ambas-
sador had met.
The logic escapes us as well
and raises questions as to with
whom else the Administration
is carrying on discussions. The
impression outside Foggy Bot-
tom was that the U.S. PLO
dialogue was to be maintained
at a low level until the PLO
took actions to justify upgrad-
ing the relationship. We have
seen no evidence of such
behavior. In fact, the "official"
interlocutor for the PLO in
Tunis, Yasir Abd Rabbo is a
deputy in the DFLP which
continues to boast of its terror-
ist infiltration attempts from
Lebanon. Meanwhile, the
PLO's UN representative read
a statement by Arafat June 19
that "categorically rejects"
Israel's peace plan, calling it a
"fake political project."
Secret Diplomacy
A particularly disturbing
aspect of the Administration's
action is that they were car-
ried out secretly, without con-
sultation with members of
Congress. Who knows what

Number 23
Salah Khalaf, better known
by his nom de guerre Abu
Iyad played a role in the
killings of numerous Ameri-
cans during his many years as
a mastermind of international
terrorism. His PLO has been
implicated in murder plots
against at least one American
president and two secretaries
of state.
Abu Iyad has been one of
Yasir Arafat's right-hand men
since helping form the Pales-
tine Student's Union at Cairo
University in 1951. In 1964,
the joined Arafat in founding
the Movement for the Libera-
tion of Palestine, which later
became the PLO.
In the early 1970s, Abu Iyad
ran the Fatah branch dis-
guised by the name Black Sep-
tember. He helped coordinate
activities with those of the
Irish Republican Army, PFLP,
Baader-Meinhof Gang, and the
Japanese Red Army. One of
his collaborators was Basil al-
Kubaissi, a trusted lieutenant
of George Habash who helped
plan the 1972 Lod massacre in
which Japanese Red Army ter-
rorists murdered 16 Puerto
Rican pilgrims and wounded
26 others.
Alan Hart, a PLO defender
and author of a sympathetic
biography of Arafat, said Abu
Iyad had "executive responsi-
bility for organizing the mas-
sacre of 11 Israeli athletes at
the 1972 Munich Olympics.
One of the victims was David
Berg of Cleveland.

gence and deputy chief of staff

Hadassah Issues
"Action Alert" On
Repo Rights Strategy
Changing Attitudes On Sex,
Relationships Documented
In Hadassah Study
NEW YORK A sweeping
new look at changing attitudes
toward sex and human rela-
tionships, which includes a uni-
que mix of personal anecdotes
and scholarly essays, was
released during the 75th
National Convention, July 16-
19, in Atlanta.
Although Jewish in its per-
spective, the new book, "Jew-
ish Marital Status," touches on
a range of issues that cut
across social and cultural lines
in contemporary America. The
book was compiled by Hadas-
sah's National Jewish Educa-
tion Department, and is help-
ing published by Jason Aron-
son Inc. of New Jersey.
Running almost 400 hard-
bound pages, "Jewish Marital
Status" is divided into eight
sections dealing with the com-
plex personal issues arising
from being "single," "not
quite married," "married,"
"married again," "single
again," "remarried," "inter-
married," "gay/lesbian" and
The book includes contribu-
tions from some of the nation's
leading clerics, scholars and
writers on Jewish social issues,
as well as the perceptions of
individuals for whom issues
such as choosing to remain
childless and homosexuality
are a matter of intense, and
sometimes painful, personal
experience rather than schol-
arly speculation.
Contributors range from
well-known figures in Jewish
life such as Robert Gordis, Blu
Greenberg, Susan Wiedman
Schneider, Rabbi Haskel Look-
stein and Francine Klagsbrun
to lesser known but no less
compelling observers such as
Helen Rubinstein, a New Yor-
ker who writes on "Spinsters
of the '80's," Liz Galst, a
writer who recalls revealing
her homosexuality to her
grandmother, and the late
Paul Cowan and his wife
Rachel, who were of different
faiths when they married.
A sampling of titles from the
essays included in the book
reveals the scope of the topics
covered: "Jewish, Single and
Male," "The Liberal Jew and
Sex," Happy Marriages,"
"Mom, We're Just Dating,"
"Jewish and Gay" and "And
Baby Makes Two: Single
Mothers by Choice."
One of the contributors of
the book, Dr. Ellen M.
Umansky, an associate profes-
sor at Emory University and a
widely published writer on
women in Judaism, conducted
a special discussion session on
the topic, "The Liberal Jew
and Sex" during Hadassah's
75th National Convention in
She was joined by Dr. David
Feldman, a rabbi and author of
"Marital Relations, Birth Con-
trol and Abortion in Jewish
Law," who discussed "The
Jewish Sexual Ethic" in a con-
current session.
Dr. Carol Diament, Director
of the National Jewish Educa-
tion Department at Hadassah,
who edited the book under the
direction of Ruth G. Cole,
Hadassah's National Jewish
Education Chairman, said the
book will be the basis for a
study guide that will be used in
educational programs for
Hadassah's 385,000 members
in 1,500 chapters nationwide.
In her introduction to "Jew-
ish Marital Status," Dr. Dia-
ment, the first woman to earn
a doctorate in Jewish Studies
at Yeshiva University, notes
that the idea for the book was
born at the 1987 World Con-
ference on Jewish Demo-
graphy in Jerusalem.
Dr. Diament recalls that
experts at the conference
painted a grim picture of the
future of the Jewish family,
which, like all families, is
besieged by the rapid social
changes of the 1980s as well as
by problems uniquely its own,
and called on community
organizations and institutions
to play a more active role in
addressing such social issues.
Hadassah responded first
with a study guide which
explored the everyday realities
of family life and the ways it
has been perceived in litera-
ture from the Bible to Philip
Roth's novel, "Portnoy's Com-
plaint." The guide is a "best
seller" among Hadassah chap-
ters and Jewish educational
institutions across the nation.
"Jewish Marital Status" is
the latest step in Hadassah's
expanding Jewish education
program to provide its mem-
bers with the information and
the tools to deal with questions
arising from sex, marriage and
relationships in the 1990's,
Mrs. Cole said.
"These are questions that
everyone must face in our
society today," she added.
"Our world and the way we
perceive ourselves in it are
changing. 'Jewish Marital
Status' is about the changes
that affect us all, and how we
cope with them. Its message,
basically, is that we are all in
this together, and, together,
we can find ways to preserve
the values, and strengthen the
relationships, that we cher-

ATLANTA, Hadassah,
the Women's Zionist Organiza-
tion of America, called on its
1,500 chapters and groups
across the country to imple-
ment a nationwide, grassroots
strategy aimed at preserving
women's reproductive rights.
In an "Action Alert" issued
to delegates at the organiza-
tion's 75th National Conven-
tion here, Hadassah directed
its chapters and groups to take
six specific steps to combat
increasing attempts to curb
women's freedom of reproduc-
tive choice in the wake of the
controversial Supreme Court
decision on the question.
Hadassah, one of the largest
and most influential women's
groups in the United States,
also affirmed its policy state-
ment, first adopted in 1981,
calling freedom of choice "a
matter of privacy of the indi-
vidual, to be determined by
each woman in accordance
with her religious, moral and
ethical values."
The six-point strategy dis-
closed by Hadassah today calls
on chapters to "educate the
Jewish and non-Jewish com-
munities to understand the
traditional Jewish reverence
for the sanctity of life" and
"traditional Jewish guidelines
regarding pregnancy and abor-
tion," and "at the same time
reiterate our support for the
freedom of reproductive
The document also urges
Hadassah chapters to join
other "freedom of choice advo-
cacy groups" such as "local
Jewish Community Relations
Councils, National Organiza-
tion for Women (NOW),
Planned Parenthood, and
National Abortion Rights
Action League (NARAL)."
In addition, the "alert" calls
on Hadassah members to
become knowledgeable about
state laws on abortion and the
positions on reproductive
choice of candidates for state
legislatures. It also recom-
mends that members inform
candidates of "our individual
and organizational position"
on reproductive rights and
oppose state referenda "aimed
at restricting rights of women
during pregnancy."
Hadassah, the Women's
Zionist Organization of Amer-
ica, is the nation's largest inde-
pendent Jewish women's
group and the largest Zionist
organization in the world. Its
385,000 members include
women of all ages, back-
grounds, political beliefs and
streams of Judaism.

eight Jewish members felt that

Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) and
Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.)

Mitchell said that while
President Bush opposes the
compromise, he considers it
"far less offensive" than the
Helms proposal and will not
veto it.
Before the Senate debate,
Bush sent a letter to Mitchell
warning that the amendment
"would interfere significantly,
if not destroy, the ability of the
United States to promote a
viable peace process in the
Middle East.

Bush said the administration
has "wholeheartedly
endorsed" the Israeli govern-
ment's "serious proposal for
elections and negotiations"
with the Palestinians "and has
sought to bring about a posi-
tive Palestinian and Arab
"Indeed, the government of
Israel asked for our assistance
in eliciting a positive Arab
response," Bush added.
He said the effort is now "at

lomatic juncture. This is no

executive a key tool of our
"Should this amendment
become law, U.S. influence
would be diminished and the
prospects for peace signifi-

undermined. The big losers
would be Israel and our-
selves," Bush said.
But Grassley of Iowa said
supporters of the Helms
amendment were mainly inter-
ested in stopping terrorism
and were not trying to inter-
fere in Middle East diplomacy.
The votes came three weeks
after reports surfaced that the
U.S. ambassador to Tunisia,
Robert Pelletreau, had met
with Salah Khalaf, a top PLO
official also known as Abu
Pelletreau is the only official
authorized to conduct talks
with PLO officials.
Khalef founded the extrem-
ist Black September terrorist
organization held responsible
for the massacre of 11 Israeli
athletes at the Munich Olym-
pic Games in 1972.
He was also implicated in the
1973 killing of the U.S. ambas-
sador to Sudan, Cleo Noel Jr.
And he was indicted in Italy
last month on charges that he
helped supply PLO arms to the
Red Brigades.

kind of promises were made
during these discussions? Offi-
cials deny any agreements
were made, but the problem
with carrying out such secret
talks is that they make it
increasingly hard to believe
what we are told. Abu Iyad
said Dennis Ross, the director
of policy planning will soon
meet with him. Now it's diffi-
cult not to be skeptical of State
Department denials.
It must be even more diffi-
cult for Israel to trust the
United States. This confid-
ence-eroding measure occurs
just when the President was
hoping to reassure the Israelis
of America's support for the
Shamir plan. The disclosure
could not have come at a worse
time on the eve of the Likud
Party's central committee
meeting. Evidence of Ameri-
can double-dealing only
strenghtens the hand of hard-
liners who maintain that elec-
tions are merely a smoke-
screen for indirect negotia-
tions with the PLO.
Israel's official response was
reserved: "Israel has pre-
sented a peace initiative cal-
ling for a dialogue between
Israel and elected representa-
tives of the Palestinians. The
dialogue in Tunis discourages
Palestinians from supporting
this initiative which is
designed to promote a peaceful
solution to the conflict." Pri-
vately, officials express consid-
erable mistrust over the
Administration's intentions
and actions.
The peace process is
retarded by allowing Arafat to
maintain his veto over who will
participate in negotiations and
what can be discussed.
Upgrading the dialogue with
the Tunis PLO undermines the
stature of Palestinians in the
territories who would like to
have a voice in their own fate.
The Administration would
be justified in meeting Abu
Iyad one more time: to hand-
cuff him and bring him back to
the United States to stand trial
for his involvement in terror-
ism against Americans.

Why I Stand Up For Israel
Israel. The very sound of the
word conjures up images of a
land beautiful beyond the wild-
est dreams of any man. A land
flowing with milk and honey,
where you can walk in foot-
steps of your ancestors. The
reason I love this land is not
for her physical beauty or her
archaeological opportunities. I
love his land because it is the
fulfillment of a solemn promise
between God and my father
Abraham thousands of years
The modern State of Israel
was born out of the ashes of
the Holocaust. Followingjtbe
vicious slaughtering of one-
third of world Jewry, this pro-
phetic vision of return to our
homeland was made reality.
The sweat and blood of thou-
sands of chalutzim resulted in
this modern day miracle. This
land we call Eretz Yisrael, this
bastion of beauty, is the guar-
antee that there will never
again be a homeless Jew.
Israel is the homeland of the
Jewish people, the birthplace
of our heritage. Israel is the
one thing that unites all Jews.
It is our homeland to fight for,
to pray for, to live in, to study
in. As a young Jew, I have a
stake in this distant land. I
have a moral and spiritual obli-
gation to this land half way
around the globe.
"If I forget thee oh Jerusa-
lem may my right hand
wither." That statement by
our ancestors, that affirmation
of commitment, is as alive in
my heart today as it was in
theirs so many years ago. Sup-
port for Israel is an integral
and immutable part of being
Jewish. For me, Jerusalem is
more than some eastern city to
which I face in prayer, it is my
homeland. It is up to me, as an
American Jew, to assert my
Godgiven right to this land. As
an American Jew I have the
unique opportunity to support
my homeland through political
activism. It is my obligation to
walk the halls of the Capitol, as
I did last March, convincing
senators and congressmen of
the importance of the Jewish
State to America. It is my
obligation to march in solidar-
ity with my Israeli brothers
and sisters in the annual
Israeli Day Parade. It is my
obligation to put that dollar in
the tzedakah box for the hun-
gry in Petach Kitvah, to help
the JNF plant that tree in
Haifa, to participate in that
UJC Walk-athon. Why? What
is the point of it all? Why do I
stand up for Israel?
I stand up for Israel because
Israel is my homeland. A gift
from the Almighty. For thou-
sands of years my people wan-
dered in exile yearning to
return to Eretz Yisrael, this
bountiful land and stretching
from the Euphrates River to
the Gulf of Aquaba. This Zion-
ist vision is what sustained our
nation through their years in
the Diaspora. At the close of
the nineteenth century Theo-
dore Herzl spoke those immor-
tal words, "If you will it is not
a dream." As an heir and
beneficiary of that dream, I am
obligated to preserve it and
support it for the next genera-
tion and for generations to
come. The hard labor and
bloodshed of my people in
struggle for this land must not
be for naught. These dedicated
pioneers of the Zionist vision
offered their lives not only for
the fulfillment of the dream so
they could see it, but so I could
see and bear the fruits of their
labor. My obligation is no dif-
These past sixteen months
since the uprising in Judea,
Samaria, and Gaza began have
been hard times for my home-
land and for my people. I
constantly see the unwar-
ranted maligning my country
has received in the media. Now
more than ever before, I must
stand together with my Israeli
brothers and sisters. There are
those who would like the
sweat, blood, tears, and pray-
ers of my ancestors to be for
nothing. They would threaten
the survival of my homeland in
the interest of an impossible

In an emotionally charged

a Soviet Refusenik.
"At the age of 21 I was a
physics teacher, and I did not
know the word synagogue; I
did not know the word Hanuk-
kah; I did not know that Jews
were supposed to celebrate
Passover. I never met a Rabbi,
never heard about a Rabbi, and
here I am in a free country, a
Rabbi, teaching American
Jews about Hanukkah, Pas-
sover, and freedom,", empha-

Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
(Num. 35.14)
"Three cities beyond the Jordan, and three cities .
aan; they shall be cities of refuge"
MASE The portion begins with a detailed account of the
various way stations on the Israelites' route to the Promised
Land, from the time they left Egypt until they reached the plains
of Moab, by the Jordan at Jericho. Instructions concerning the
apportionment of the land followed. "And ye shall inherit the land
by lot according to your families to the more ye shall give the
more inheritance, and to the fewer thou shalt give the less
inheritance; wheresoever the lot falleth to any man, that shall be
his" (Numbers 33.54). It was necessary that all the Canaanites be
expelled. "But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land
from before you, then shall those that ye let remain of them be as
thorns your eyes, and as pricks in your sides, and they shall harass
you in the land wherein ye dwell" (Numbers 33.55).
The portion gives specific instructions concerning the boundary
lines and lists the names of the persons who should divide the
land. The Israelites are commanded to set aside 48 cities and
surrounding lands for the Levites, who have not been given
territory as the other tribes were. Reference is made to the cities
of refuge where the accidental murderer might flee for safety.
The portion, and book of Numbers, ends with an injunctioin
prohibiting the transfer of inherited land from one tribe to
another through inter-tribal marriage.

peace. I stand more committed
today than ever before to
standing up for Israel. As the
Rabbi Hillel said, "If I am not
for myself, who will be for
Israel to me is more than
simply a romantic notion of a
homeland, more than the
enthusiastic desire to walk
through history. It is the reali-
zation of a promise to my
forefathers that their descend-
ants would inhabit this land.
That promise has been kept.
Israel belongs to the Jewish
people. It is the birthplace of
our nation. We are one people
with one heart. We must stand
united in the struggle for our
survival. No one ever said that
supporting Israel would be an
easy task, but the difficulty did
not matter to Herzl, Weiz-
mann, and Ben-Gurion. We are
the next link in the chain of
Jewish survival. We must be
strong like our ancestors. I
hope that I have the strength
and courage to stand up for my
homeland and for my people.
The work is not for me to do. If
I do my job, never again will
we be without a home. Our
brothers and sisters will not
have toiled in vain. As long as
we keep alive the flame of
Zionism in our hearts and
deeds, the dream will never be
lost, and always be real. That
dream that inspired a nation.

am chof8hi b'artzeynu. Eretz
Zion V'Yeru8halayim. As long
as a Jewish heart beats. And
as long as Jewish eyes look
eastward. Then our two thou-
sand year hope to be a free
nation in Zion is not lost. I
hope and pray that as our
fathers and mothers were
given the strength to proclaim
our state over forty years ago,
so too will we have the
strength to sustain her. May
our sweat, tears, and work
lead the way to our final
redemption. L'sha-
nah Ha'Baah B'Yerushalayim.
