Shamir Speaks On Eve Of Holy Days
Israel Can't Lead Fight
Against Anti-Semitism
Moshe Yeroshalmi, 20, is spending his first Rosk Hashanah in freedom as a freshman at
Yeshiva University in New York. Moshe escaped from Iran last year through Pakistan and
later went to Vienna. He arrived in the U.S. in April to join his two brothers, Yakov, 26, and
Dovid, 24, in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn. Moshe is a pre-health major at Yeshiva
'Who Is A Jew' Accord
By J. J. GOLDBERG
The New York Jewish Week
NEW YORK Negotiations
between representatives of
Orthodox, Conservative and
Reform Judaism, held for the
last six months outside the
glare of any publicity under
Israeli government auspices,
reportedly are close to devel-
oping a joint formula for con-
version that could begin to
resolve the "Who is a Jew"
controversy.
"Negotiations are
going on," said Rabbi Walter
Jacob of Pittsburgh, a vice
president of the Central Con-
ference of American Rabbis,
who is negotiating on behalf of
the Reform movement. "Vari-
ous proposals exist, but no

JERUSALEM Israel's
need to deal with other nations
makes it impossible for it to
lead the fight against anti-
Semitism around the world,
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir said here. In a frank and
somewhat surprising, wide-
ranging interview with the
Jerusalem Post, Shamir said
that this role properly
belonged to Jewish organiza-
tions in the Diaspora.
"The government of Israel
has got enough problems; its
role is to worry about the
state," Shamir said. "A state
is something else Perhaps
we can compare it though
this is a bit far-reaching to
(the respective roles of) a com-
munist state and the world-
wide communist movement.
"We are a small country. We
cannot, with our limited
strength, be active and fight
on every front throughout the
world."
Regarding the current strain
in relations with the Catholic
church, Shamir indicated that
it was not in Israel's interest
to be in the forefront of that
battle, either.
While he acknowledged that
there was "a dispute" with the
church, which Israel ought to
"conduct" steadily, he also
noted the Vatican's influence
in a large number of countries.
His statements regarding
the Jewish state's role in the
battle against anti-Jewish sen-
timent worldwide, and Israel's
position in the context of the
Jewish people generally, were
seen here as novel and unprec-
edented for an Israeli prime
minister.
Often in the past, Shamir's
predecessors have stressed the
country's role as protector and
defender of Jews everywhere,
and its primary position in all
matters Jewish.
"I'm not interested in open-
ing a lot of (new) fronts around
the world," Shamir said.
"We've got enough (fronts).
We have to fight against anti-
Semitism without being the
leading force in this fight.
There are Jewish organiza-
tions in the world whose role is
(to lead that fight).
"And they do it not badly,
though they could do it bet-
ter.' The only leadership
Israel should take in the strug-
gle, the prime minister said, is
"in a spiritual sense, an ideolo-
gical sense, but not in the
sensse of daily activism.
"We, for our part, should try
and see to it that there is
coordination, that many other
parties not all of them nec-
essarily Jewish are involved
and active," Shamir said.
"For instance, it's good that
all sorts of left-wing bodies
(around the world) are still
active in the struggle against

U.S. Jews Relieved
As Glemp Cancels Trip
By ALLISON KAPLAN
NEW YORK (JTA) The decision
of Cardinal Jozef Glemp, the Polish
primate, to cancel his scheduled visit
later this month to a number of U.S.
cities was greeted with sighs of relief
from American Jewish leaders over
the weekend.
Glemp's remarks regarding the con-
troversial Chrmelite convent at Aus-
chwitz have deeply angered and
offended Jews.
Glemp, the highest-ranking Catholic
official in Poland, accused Jews last
month of threatening Polish sover-
eignty and using their alleged influ-
ence in the mass media to spread
anti-Polish sentiments.
He also called for the agreement
between Polish and Jewish leaders for
the relocation of the convent to be
renegotiated, claiming that those who
drew up the 1987 agreement were
"incompetent."
Glemp had been set to arrive in
Chicago on Sept. 21. He also had
planned to visit Cleveland, Detroit,
Milwaukee, Boston and Washington.
The cancellation of his visit was
announced last Saturday by the Polish
press agency.
Jewish groups in several of these
cities made their displeasure with
Glemp clear to the local Catholic estab-
lishment, and declined invitations to
participate in interfaith activities that
Glemp was to take part in.
In view of the strained atmosphere,
canceling the visit "was a wise deci-
sion," said Rabbi James Rudin, direc-
tor of interreligious affairs for the
American Jewish Committee.
Rudin said that if Glemp had arrived
in the United States on Sept. 21 as
scheduled, his presence would have
"exacerbated tensions between
Catholics and Jews."

Israel Deserves, Needs Soviet Jews
With more than 6,000
Jews leaving the Soviet
Union in a single month
the most ever there is
increasing need for a uni-
fied policy by world Jewry
and the State of Israel on
the absorption of these
most welcome emigrants.
Virtually all of the Jews
now departing the USSR
leave with visas for Israel.
The overwhelming percen-
tage of them, however, still
opt for the United States as
a final destination.
In spite of such major
problems as unemployment,
inflation and the heavy
financial burdens of both
the inflation and the contin-
ued fighting in the
Lebanon, Israel is ready,
willing and able to take in
each and every Jew who
desires to move there.
That, of course, is one of
the major reasons for the
establishment of the mod-
ern State of Israel 41 years
ago. It is primary reason
why American Jews
Zionist and non-Zionist
alike gave so much of
their time, talent and funds
to support the fledgling
Jewish state.
Israeli officials state, with
complete justification, that
there can be no Jewish "ref-
ugee" so long as there is a
State of Israel with its Law
of Return.
It is, therefore, really not
a responsibility of America
Jewish organizations to
pressure the State Depart-
ment to automatically con-
fer refugee status on all
Soviet Jews who desire to
come to America.
It is equally not the
responsibility for American
Jewish Federations to raise
massive funds ranging
from the tens to the
hundreds of millions of dol-
lars involved for the
resettlement of the tens of
thousands of Soviet Jews
who may well wish to come
here in the coming months
and years.
Exceptions such as in the
case of Soviet Jews with
relatives residing in Amer-
ica are obvious.
But a far wiser course
would be to urge, if not
insist, those leaving the
| Soviet Union with Israel
visas to go to Israel for at
least a year and preferably
two before applying for
| admission to the United
I States. Jews who live in
r Israel obviously should, and
E do, have the opportunity to
8 leave as well as to enter
| that nation.
Those who have never
"tried" living in Israel, and
who are allowed to leave a
country with visas for emi-
gration to the Jewish state,
should be encouraged in the
strongest terms to make
aliyah to the State of Israel.
Israel deserves and
should get the support of
every Federation the world
over in making that position
the official policy of world
Jewry.

Israel Hotel
Prices Drop
Israel's Ministry of Tourism
and hoteliers have agreed to a
reduction in prices of tourist
recommended hotels in Israel
up to 25 percent as of Sunday.
Agreement was reached and
signed in Tel Aviv between the
Minister of Tourism Gideon
Patt and the Israel Hotel Asso-
ciation following the recom-
mendation of the Knesset.
The agreement avoids the
need for Minister Patt to sign
regulations enforcing price
controls on the hotel industry,

Tourism in the Israel Govern-
ment tourist Office in Miami

Tashlich:
ORT Sponsors Luncheon
Age-Old Ritual
"Sin is not sinful because
God forbade it, but God for-
bade it because it is sinful",
wrote Joseph Saadia, Gaon of
Sura, Babylon in his Emunot
De Veot in 933 C.E. Yet human
beings are fallible creatures
and Jews, like everyone else,
fall prey to sin. We are told
that a contrite heart and true
confession of sin during the
days before Yom Kippur may
bring about a merciful judg-
ment. "The gates of prayer are
sometimes open and some-
times closed, it is written,
"but the gates of repentance
are ever open."
Our faith gives us many
opportunities to rid ourselves
of sin, and one very dramatic
ritual carried out on the after-
noon of the first day of Rosh
Hashanah, is known as "Tash-
lich" or "casting". It is cus-
tomary to walk to a river or
spring, preferably one with
fish in it, and recite special
penitential prayers, the ess-
ence of which is:
"You will cast all their sins
into the depths of the sea, and
may You cast all the sins of
Your people, the house of
Israel, into a place where they
shall be no more remembered
or visited or ever come to
mind." (Mic. 7:19)
After reciting the prayers,
the custom is to empty your
pockets, pull them out and
shake them three times, cast-
ing crumbs into the water as
symbolic of casting off sins and
starting the New Year afresh.
Tashlich can be performed
even on the second day of Rosh
Hashanah especially if the first
day falls on the Sabbath
(except in Jerusalem where it
must always be performed on
the first day, even if it is
Shabbat or raining). Else-
where it is unusual to go to a
sea or a river, if that is possi-
ble. In Safed, the observant go
to the roofs of their houses
from where they can see Lake
Kinneret (also known as the
Sea of Galilee), and recite their
prayers.
Of course there are no rivers
or streams in Jerusalem, so
Tashlich is said near cisterns
which still hold water. In my
neighborhood, Kiryat Moshe,
we go to a lovely old house that
has a well, normally covered
with a heavy stone. In the late
afternoon (for the prayers
must be said before sunset)
scores of people stream
through the gate dressed in
their best New Year clothes.
Before the visitors leave, a
child from the family passes
out sweets to everyone a
delightful way for members of

HILARY JEWEL
Hilary Jewel was born Sep-

selves the guardians of the
well to show neighborly hospi-
tality.
Israeli author Shai Agnon, a
recipient of the Nobel Prize for
Literature, devoted several
pages to the Tashlich cere-
mony in his book Days of Awe.
He relates that the custom of
going to seas or rivers stems
from a story in the Midrash;
when Abraham went to bind
his son Isaac, Satan went
before him and turned into a
great river with waters reach-
ing up to Abraham's neck.
Abraham raised his eyes to
heaven and declared: "Master
of the Universe, You have cho-
sen me and said to me Through
you shall My name be known in
the world" and now the waters
have come even to my soul. If
I, or Isaac my son, should
drown, through whom would
Your name be declared One?"
At once the Holy One rebuked
the river and Abraham was
saved. Tashlich has a parallel
in ancient times when the
Romans used to cast straw
puppets into the Tiber on the
Ides of May. In European folk
usage, such offerings were
often made on New Year's
Eve to the Rhine, Danube,
Rhone, Elbe and Neckar.
The Tashlich ritual was
introduced into Judaism in the
15th century. There are sev-
eral interpretations one
being that the sight of water
on Rosh Hashanah recalls the
fact that the world was
created out of watery chaos.

Shofar Shapes And Sounds
What have the sages told us
about the physical character of
the shofar (animal horn), the
sounding of which is the cen-
tral religious act of Rosh
Hashanah? They tell us that
the horn must be taken from a
kosher animal, such as the
sheep, goat, mountain goat,
antelope or gazelle.
Shapes
We are warned against
using the horn of the cow, in
spite of the fact that it is
kosher, as it is associated with
the golden calf and idolatry.
Rabbi Abbahu teaches that
the ram's horn is preferable as
its curved shape is suggestive
of the bending of the will and
the submission of the worship-
pers about to repent before
God in the ten days between
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kip-
pur. The ram's horn also
recalls the sacrifice made by
Abraham in the Biblical story
of the Akedah. This story of
Abraham's great faith and
trust in God and in God's great
mercy is the Haftorah portion
for the second day of Rosh
Hashanah.
The sages also insist that the
shofar be a minimum of four
inches long, and have no holes
in it. It is specifically forbidden
to try to fill any holes, and
make perfect what is flawed.
Cracks along the width of the
shofar disqualify it but a shofar
cracked along its length may
be used providing their is
enough space left between the
mouthpiece and the crack to
fulfill the minimum size
requirement for the shofar.
The shofar should not be
painted in such a way as to
change its color although it is
permissible to coat the shofar
with gold. It is also permitted
Anne Pollard
Granted Furlough
By ALLISON KAPLAN
NEW YORK (JTA) Anne
Henderson Pollard has been
granted a furlough from prison
over the High Holy Days and a
transfer to a halfway house in
late November, pending the
approval of her warden at the
Danbury Federal Prison Camp
in Connecticut.
Pollard, the wife of con-
victed spy Jonathan Pollard,
was told of the recommenda-
tion for the furlough and half-
way house Wednesday.
On the same day, she was
denied early release on parole
by Daniel Lopez, the North-
east regional parole commis-
sioner.
The parole denial came in
spite of more than 200 tele-
grams and letters sent to
Lopez's office by Henderson
Pollard's supporters, asking
that he reverse the recommen-
dation of a parole board, which
ruled Aug. 22 that she should
not be granted early release.
Lopez's decision means that
she will most likely not be
finally released on parole until
March 1990, three years after
she began serving her five-
year sentence.
Pollard was convicted for
possession of classified docu-
ments in connection with her
husband's espionage activities.
to decorate the shofar with
geometrical designs and pat-
terns, and to inscribe Biblical
verses and the name of the
community or individual
owner of the shofar on it. Such
designs and inscriptions are
particularly commonplace on
shofarot made by Ashkenazi
communities, with whom it
was also common practice to
reshape the animal horn
through a delicate process of
heating from within. Often the
horn was reshaped into a
ninety degree angle.
The most striking and cer-
tainly the largest of all shof-
arot are those made in the
Yemenite communities. Una-
ble to use the ram of Yemen,
which was not kosher, the
Yemenite Jews imported the
horns of the kudu from its
native India, Persia or Ethio-
pia. From these horns they
fashioned the remarkable spi-
ral shaped shofarot often over
four feet in length, which are
put to use even today on cere-
monial occasions.
Sounds
Today the shofar retains the
same form it had in antiquity
and has not evolved in time as
musical instruments have.
This is perhaps due to the fact
that the sages were never
interested in the musical or
tonal quality of the shofar but
rather with the religious mean-
ing of the shofar's sounds.
There are three basic sounds:
the "tekiah", a long unbroken
sound which symbolizes hope
and strength; the "shevarim",
three shorter more broken
sounds, indicative to some of
wailing; and the "teruah",
nine staccato sounds likened to
the broken heart of the peni-
tent.
On Rosh Hashanah it is cus-
tomary to sound the shofar a
minimum of one hundred
times. The first sounding of
the shofar is while the public is
seated (tekiah meyushav), but
the principle sounding '38RaAA

final agreement has been
reached.'
The talks were initiated last
winter by Prime Minister Yitz-
hak Shamir. They are focused
on developing a mutually
agreed-upon mechanism for
conversions to Judaism in the
case of persons seeking to set-
tle in Israel. Such a mechan-
ism, it is hoped, would sidestep
the demand by some Orthodox
groups for an amendment to
Israel's Law of Return specify-
ing that immigrant converts
must be converted "according
to halacha," or traditional rab-
binic law, as it is interpreted
by the Orthodox rabbinate.
The Law of Return grants
certain privileges to Jewish
immigrants to Israel. It
defines as a Jew a person born
of a Jewish mother or con-
verted, but does not set down
standards for conversion.
Most Orthodox rabbis
believe that Reform and most
Conservative rabbis have
strayed from the strict hala-
cha, making their conversions
and other decrees invalid.
Israel's state-sponsored Chief
Rabbinate, which controls
marriage, divorce and other
domestic-law procedures, has
followed the Orthodox line and
generally has ruled non-
Orthodox converts to be non-
Jews.
Immigration procedures,
however, are governed by the
Law of Return, which does not
make the distinction.
Attempts to amend the law
have sparked sharp outcries
from U.S. Jews who see the
amendment as an attempt to
delegitimize their rabbis and
by extension, their practice of
Judaism in Israeli law.
Negotiators said they
decided to keep the talks
secret after an earlier round of
negotiations was leaked to the
press last fall and quickly col-
apsed in disarray. All requests
for details of the plan under
consideration were turned
down.
"I can only tell you that
we're working on it,
that we've met in Jerusalem
and in the United States, and
that there's a sincere commit-
ment to resolve the problem by
all sides," said Rabbi Louis
Bernstein of Queens, a profes-
sor at Yeshiva University who
is representing
mainstream U.S. Orthodoxy in
the talks.
Negotiators include one rep-
resentative from each of the
principal wings of U.S. Jewry,
designated by the presidents
of their respective seminaries,
and two ranking Israeli gov-
ernment officials.
In addition to Jacob and
Bernstein, participants include

Jerusalem, representing the
Conservative movement; Zev

of the Ministry of Religious
Affairs, acting as liaison to the
Chief Rabbinate, and Elyakim

Israeli cabinet, who has
chaired the talks as Shamir's
representative.
Bernstein emphasized that
the proposals under considera-
tion deal only with the narrow
issue of potential converts who
intend to settle in Israel, and
do not touch on broader rela-
tions between Orthodox and
non-Orthodox Judaism.
"Just A Baby Step"
"This is just a baby-step,"
Bernstein said. "It is only deal-
ing with the problem of poten-
tial olim (immigrants to
Israel). If we can succeed on
this, we hope to go further."
In fact, said Bernstein, the
initial agreement which is
still far from final does not
even deal with the status of
would-be emigrants who
already have been converted in
the past by non-Orthodox rab-
bis.
"It meals only with people verted, Bernstein said. "We
who want to go to Israel now decided to deal first with the
and have not yet been con- easy one.

JNF Helps Halt
Spread Of Forest Fires
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) This
summer has seen fewer and
less devastating forest fires in
Israel than the disastrous dry-
season of 1988, but not
because the number of arson
attempts has declined.
Unfortunately, says Moshe
Rivlin, world chairman of the
Jewish National Fund, the inti-
fada is still with us, and with it
the desire to burn and destroy
JNF forests that have changed
the face of the land.
The reason for the relatively
low toll in ruined trees and
gutted groves, he said, "is the
action we have taken over this
past year to be able to prevent
fires spreading."
In particular, Rivlin notes,
JNF enlisted the counsel of the
United States Forest Service.
The result has been better
equipment, better prepared-
ness and much better coopera-
tion between JNF and all the
various authorities in Israel
that collectively contribute to
fire-prevention or control.
"We ourselves at JNF now
have thirteen small and man-
euverable fire-engines in ser-
vice around the country, and
another three big ones. Our
radio communications network
has been totally overhauled:
we now deploy 350 units, and
we are in constant contact
with the IDF.
"We man 41 fire lookout
posts 24 hours a day, and we
nave 30-odd fire-fighting
teams on alert around the
clock. Some are mobile
patrols; others are stationary
teams who are ready to
respond to an emergency call
instantly.
"In the forests themselves,
we have been systematically
widening the paths between
the glades, so that fires cannot
sweep through large wooded
areas with the speed and ease
that we witnessed last year.
"And above all, there is
effective coordination between
us, the IDF and that
includes the air force the
fire services in each locality,
the Nature Reserves Author-
ity and the Society for the
Protection of Nature.
Cooperation Is Important
"I cannot exaggerate the
importance of this coopera-
tion, both in preventing blazes
and in getting them under
control.
There is, however, a "bot-
tom line," says JNF chief,
which people don't always
understand. "They see readily
enough that damaged and
destroyed forests need funds
to make them live and grow
again. But they don't necessar-
ily realize how much preven-
tion costs."
The reclamation work,
spearheaded by JNF's "Tree-
for-a-Tree" campaign, has
already achieved marked suc-
cess. Much of the ravaged land
has been re-planted, though
nature, of course, has to take
its own time. Forests don't
grow in a year."
A high-level U.S. Forest Ser-
vice team, which toured Israel
extensively during May, was
outspoken in its praise for
JNF.
In its "Report, Recommen-
dations and Action Plan" sub-
mitted by L.A. Amicarella, dir-
ector of Fire and Aviation
Management, the team noted:
"On our 1989 trip we saw
many of the suggestions
offered as a result of the
December 1987 trip already
put into sound action by JNF.
"The team was enormously
impressed by the outstanding
accomplishments of JNF in
afforestation, species manage-
ment and fire prevention
approaches in the Mediterran-
ean and dryer climate land.
"Afforestation techniques
and successes are significantly
better than any the team has
seen, read, or heard about in
the United States or elsewhere
in the world. We hope that the
USFS will benefit from Israeli
expertise in this area."
The U.S. experts note in
their report that Israel will
have to grapple with the chal-
lenge of forest fires even after
the intifada ends.

Century Of Jewish And Israeli History
By EDGAR ASHER
Most visitors to Israel can-
not fail to be impressed by the
quantity of museums that pro-
liferate in almost every corner
of the country. The museums
are as varied in size as they are
varied in the subject matter
they cover.
There are some museums
that use the latest technology
available for presentation and
visitor participation, such as
can be found in the Museum of
the Jewish Diaspora in Tel
Aviv. Other museums of a
more modest size and budget
tell the visitor the story of that
particular town or maybe show
a personal collection of works
of art.
Many museums show the
richness of our Jewish heri-
tage and captivate the visitor
with new discoveries from
Israel's rich and unique
archaeological past.
The Israel Wax Museum
falls into the category of the
smaller, specialist museum.
The museum is located on the
second floor of the Shalom
Mayer Tower in Tel Aviv.
Established in 1973, it was
conceived by the Mayer
brothers whose aim was to
show, in a series of tableaux,
highlights of one hundred
years of Jewish and Israeli
history.
Immediately on entering the
exhibition area the visitor
walks alone a winding, dar-
kened corridor that has set on
one side thirty-six different
tableaux that depict selected
famous and stirring events of
the past century.
The first tableau shows
Herzl standing on a balcony in
Basle, as he appears in the
famous photograph. He stands
seemingly larger than life,
every detail of his face and
hands faithfully reproduced in
wax.
Another tableau shows
Chaim Weizmann being sworn
in as Israel's first president
and yet another depicts Rabbi
Shlomo Goren, the then chief
army chaplain, blowing the
shofar at the Western Wall
after the liberation of the Old
City of Jerusalem in 1967.
Behind him are three sol-
diers who took part in the
Tourists
In Intifada
Drama
By GIL SEDAN
BETHLEHEM, West Bank
(JTA) Manger Square in
Bethlehem presents an extra-
ordinary scene these days.
Colorfully dressed tourists,
mainly from Europe, descend
from their tour buses only to
be surrounded by self-
appointed guides, who offer
in broken English tours of
the nearby Church of the
Nativity and other historic
sights.
But only a few dozen yards
away, Israeli soldiers and
Palestinian youths race and
dodge up and down the steps
of the marketplace, in their
duel of rocks and bottles
against rubber bullets.
freeing of the Old City. The
soldiers are themselve accu-
rate life size models of the
actual soldiers who were wit-
ness to the historic event.
The wax museum reflects
the fact that over the past
hundred years the story of the
Jewish people has had more
than its fair share of sadness
and drama. One scene depicts
the then Attorney General,
Gideon Hausner. at the trail of
Adolf Eichmann.
The three judges sit behind
Hausner, while to the left of
the tableau sits Eichmann in
his bullet-proof dock. Another
scene shows the arrest of Eli
Cohen in 1965 in Damascus.
This arrest resulted in Eli
Cohen being publicly hanged
following his trial in Syria as
an Israeli spy.
For two years prior to the
museum's opening, intensive
research was carried out to
ensure that the scenes
depicted were as authentic as
could be. Whenever possible
the clothes worn by the vari-
ous characters are those that
were worn at the time of the
event being depicted. Sound
effects also help to create the
right atmosphere in certain of
the tableaux. We are able to
hear the recording of the voice
of Ben Gurion as, with the
clever use of mirrors, we see
the highlights in his life,
including his proclamation of
the State of Israel in 1948.
As far as is known there was
no wax museum in Israel or
indeed in the Middle East
before 1973. It was necessary
to bring over to Israel for a
period of two years a master
craftsman to lead a team of
assistants to create the fig-
ures. This job fell to a very
gifted sculptress from Hong
Kong by the name of Vivian
Sun.
It was she who taught
Yehuda Bohana the art of
making wax figures, who
today is responsible for their
technical maintenance as well
as the creation of new figures.
Today there are over one
hundred different figures in
the exhibition.
From time to time a commit-
tee reviews the exhibits in the
museum and decides what, if
any, changes should be made
in the galleries. When a new
personality is to be added to
the collection a sculptor has to
prepare a life size head in clay,
from which is made the mold
for the wax head. Each indi-
vidual hair is sunk into the wax
head, a hair at a time. The eye
color is matched exactly, as is
the shape of the teeth, nose,
etc. The aim is to make each
individual look as he did at the
time of the event.
The famous artist Agam
appears, in one tableau, at
work against the background
of a huge color photograph of
his new fountain "Fire and
Water", situated at the Dizen-
goff Circle in Tel Aviv.
Another tableau shows Anwar
Sadat being greeted at Ben
Gurion airport by Menachem
Begin at the start of the Egyp-
tian president's historic 1977
visit to Israel. Apart from the
main exhibition theme there
are tropical groups of well-
known Israeli sportsmen and
entertainers as well as the
ever popular horror tableaux
that seem to appear in all the
famous wax museums the
world over.
The Israel Wax Museum is a
place of entertainment and
education visited by over fifty
thousand people every year.
After slowly walking through
the remarkably rich pages of
Jewish history of the past one
hundred years, the visitor can-
not help but reflect on the
events that inspired the
museum. (Perhaps after the
visit the best thing to do is to
take the elevator to the obser-
vation platform of Tel Aviv's
first skyscraper, where the
museum is located, look at the
sweeping view in every direc-
tion across the land that is
depicted in the museum below

Where Is The Intifada Going?
Near East Report
Palestinians are increasingly
ignoring the underground
leadership and devoting
greater energy to internecine
warfare, according to Jerusa-
lem Post correspondent Joel
Greenberg (Aug. 19). The
strength of the uprising, he
says, appears to be waning
because of a combination of
declining international and
Israeli interest and Palestinian
impatience and suffering.
People outside Israel are
also losing interest in the
uprising. Greenberg cites a
study by mass media
researcher Yoel Cohen that
found coverage of the intifada
in "serious" papers like the
New York Times was about the
same as that given to events in
Japan and Sri Lanka.
Israel's decision to reopen
schools in the West Bank nas
so far had a surprisingly salu-
tary effect on the population.
For the second time in a
month, Greenberg reported,
many Palestinians ignored the
"Unified ".eadership's" call
for a boycott. In several areas,
students were pressured by
members of the Popular Front
for the Liberation of Palestine
(PFLP) to stay away from
school. Palestinian parents,
however, do not want their
children to remain idle.
"The week's developments
reflect the erosion of the disci-
pline and unanimity that have
characterized the intifada
since it began," Greenberg
wrote. "After 20 months,
there are genuine signs that
the intifada is stalling, and no
longer energizing Palestinians
the way it used to."
The solidarity of merchants
is also showing cracks. In
Ramallah, Greenberg notes, a
leaflet had to be issued order-
ing people not to open stands
during strike hours. In addi-
tion, the latest strike call was
for only two days, instead of
the usual three or four. "The
easing of the strike burden
reflects recognition that the
economic tolerance of Pales-
tinians is being pushed to the
limit," Greenberg reports,
"especially after the plunge of
the Jordanian dinar, which has
cut into salaries and profits."
The pressure was stepped up
last week when Israel began
issuing new passe to Gazans.
These cards will permit Israel
to control who is allowed to
work in Israel and keep track
of which Palestinians have
been convicted of criminal
offenses. The uprising leader-
ship has called on Gazans not
to accept the passes and
warned West Bankers against
taking jobs held by Gazans.
The initial reaction of most
Palestinians has been to ignore
their leaders.
The casualty toll continues
to grow, but the intensity and
number of clashes have
declined. Greenberg cites as an
example the lack of response
to the leadership's call for
escalated protests during the
Fatah Congress.
The war among Palestinians
is the one aspect of the upris-
ing that is escalating. People
are being kidnapped and
beaten, their shops torched,

TEL AVIV (JTA) The
driver of a Jerusalem-bound
Egged bus was stabbed in the
stomach Saturday night by a
young Arab passenger, but he
managed to bring the vehicle
safely to a halt.
The assailant was taken into
custody after being badly mau-
led by fellow passengers.
Police described him as a 20-
year-old resident of the West
Bank city of Ramallah.
He had been sitting directly
behind the driver, wearing a
skullcap and disguised as an
Orthodox Jew.
The driver, Shlomo Assor,
was reported in stable condi-
tion at Shaare Zedek Hospital
in Jerusalem, with stomach
and chest wounds.
The incident occurred on the
Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway
only yards from where an
Egged bus plunged into a rav-
ine on July 6, after an Arab
passenger wrested the wheel
from the driver.
Sixteen passengers were kil-
led and 27 injured that day in
what police described as a
kamikaze terrorist attack,
although the assailant sur-
vived.
JNF Helps
The apparent attempt to
copy that attack was foiled by
the bus driver, who slammed
on the brakes when he was
stabbed, and by a 60-year-old
passenger, who grabbed the
attacker and wrestled him out
of the bus.
Other passengers swarmed
out and began to beat the
Arab.

One result of JNF's close
cooperation with the USFS is
that a group of eight JNF
foresters will be spending two
months in the U.S. this fall on
an intensive study tour, with
the focus on fire prevention
and control techniques.
Working In Tandem
While intifada-related forest
fires have been uniquely JNF's
headache this past year,
Rivlin, his staff and JNF's
worldwide support system can
hardly remain unaffected by
the overall economic crisis in
Israel, and especially over the
development areas of the Gali-
lee and the Negev where
unemployment levels far
exceed the national average.
Vice Premier and Finance
Minister Shimon Peres
recently met with Rivlin and
JNF's new director general,
Ori Orr, to discuss how JNF
can deploy its resources and
activities in concert with vari-
ous government economic
recovery programs.
Rivlin says the minister
found a sensitive, responsive
and indeed enthusiastic reac-
tion on JNF side.

anti-Semitism."
Shamir acknowledged that
there was once the belief that
the realization of the Zionist
program, the creation of a
Jewish state, would cause the
problem of anti-Semitism sim-
ply to evaporate.
At the very least, the Zionist
theory held, that state would
stand up for and protect all
Jews, wherever they found
themselves.
Shamir said, however, that
the Zionist program "has not
yet been realized," and Israel
is "not yet 'the Jewish state.'
Barely one-third of the Jewish
people live here. Zionism is far
from realization, and we
mustn't forget that.
"We do defend Jews, as far
as we can," he said. "But we
ought not to expend our
strength without careful calcu-
lation. We have to be clear
always (in our own minds)
where we are putting our pri-
orities, from a severely practi-
cal point of view."
Shamir said the question,
therefore, is how to discharge
that duty. If, for instance,
"there were anti-Semitic riots
in some place, we would have
to do everything in our power
to prevent them. We have to
protect Jews always," Shamir
said.
Among Israel's priorities, he
said, was establishing and
keeping good relations with
other nations.
"Sometimes, there are ele-
ments in a country that
express rabid hatred for the
Jews living in their own midst,
while at the same time show-
ing friendship for Israel," the
prime minister said. "There
have been such things in the
past, and they can recur.
"It is not that I accept or
acquiesce in them. But I recog-
nize them as a certain reality
and if I can derive any
benefit, I try to do so. And if I
have to defend the Jews, I try
to do that, too."
Asked if that meant he was
prepared to accept, or acqui-
esce in, a distinction between
Israeli interests and Jewish
interests, Shamir said empha-
tically not.
Exacerbating current ten-
sions between Catholics and
Jews has been the dispute over
a Carmelite convent on the
grounds of the Auschwitz
death camp.
In commenting about the
controversy recently, the head
of the Roman Catholic church
in Poland, Jozef Cardinal
(Hemp, made remarks that
have been widely interpreted
as classical Polish anti-
Semitism.
(Hemp's remarks were con-
sidered all the more surprising
because Poland, which had a
pre-Holocaust Jewish popula-
tion of 3.5 million, now has
only about 5,000 Jews living
there.
Shamir, however, said he
was not surprised to find that
a powerful anti-Semitic pres-
ence still existed in Poland.
"They suck it in with their
mother's milk," he said. "This
is something that is deeply
imbued in their tradition, their
mentality."
Nevertheless, he said,
"there are elements (in Poland
today) that are cleansed of this
anti-Semitism."
Shamir also found nothing
surprising in the apparent fact
that the more liberalization
there is in the Soviet Union,
the more the latent anti-
Semitism there comes to the
fore.
"That's easy enough to
understand," he said. "With
greater freedom of speech and
freedom of propaganda, anti-
Semitic movements re-
emerge. I wouldn't blame
democracy or democratization.
This is a side-effect. I certainly
would not oppose the process
of democratization because of
this side-effect."
Shamir said he was not
impressed that the Commun-
ists, when they ruled the
USSR with a tighter grip, had
prevented the emergence of
anti-Semitism there.
"That prevention was not
decisive,'' Shamir said. "Not
at all. After all, state anti-
Semitism is far more danger-
ous than anti-Semitism in pub-
lic opinion.
With the Communists, ever-
ything was controlled. It's
said, for instance I don't
know how true this is that
Stalin had designs to deport all
the Jews to some remote area,
or even to exterminate them.
Government anti-Semitism is
far more dangerous than the
existence of anti-Semitic
organizations."
Shamir made it clear during
the interview that the exist-
ence of anti-Semitism in a
country, no matter at how high
a level, often had to be over-
looked for political considera-
tions.
"There was (in the 1950s) a
faction in the Polish Commun-
ist Party, under (Mieczyslaw)
Moczar, that openly urged
crude and vicious anti-
Semitism," Shamir noted.
Nevertheless, Israel at the
time maintained its diplomatic
relations with Poland. The ties
were broken when Poland
recalled its ambassador follow-
ing Israel's victory in the June
1967 Six-Day War.
Shamir cited other examples
where the exigencies of polit-
ics forced anti-Semitism to the
back burner.
One such example was an
episode involving Theodor
Herzl, the so-called "father of
modern Zionism," and Vya-
cheslav Konstantinovich von
Plehve, czarist Russia's notori-
ously anti-Semitic interior
minister from 1902 until his
assassination in July 1904. It
was under Plehve's adminis-
tration of the Interior Minis-
try, which included the
nation's police force, that the
infamous Kishinev pogrom
took place.
In mid-1903, Plehve ordered
a crackdown on the Zionist
movement, which was always
strong in Russia it pre-dated
Herzl's involvement but
which had gained even greater
strength following the
Kishinev pogrom.
In August of that year, Sha-
mir noted, Herzl met with
Plehve despite the minister's
known anti-Jewish feelings.
"Herzl's idea was that
Plehve would support the
Zionist movement in order to
get rid of the Jews," Shamir
said.
Near the end of the inter-
view, the topic shifted to
Soviet Jewish emigration.
Shamir was asked how
Israeli citizens should respond
to the likelyhoood that Israel
would absorb many more
Soviet Jews if the United
States eventually went ahead
and restricted their entry.
In that case, Israel would
"benefit" from increased
immigration, but it would not
be the idealistic Zionist con-
cept of immigration.
"So what? These are historic
processes that can flow from
objective factors," Shamir
said. "Jews want to leave the
Soviet Union. Let's say they
would prefer America to
Israel, but they can't go to
America. So they'll come to
Israel. So? Are we doing them
harm? We're helping them.

"By the same token, we

word in quotation marks

Synopsis Of The Weekly Tor ah Portion
. "Give ear, ye heavens, and I will speak: And let the earth hear
the words of my mouth"
(Devi. it.I).
HAAZINU
HAAZINU Moses' song beginning "Give ear, ye heavens, and I
will speak" contains the principal elements in the unique
relationship between God and his people Israel. Moses opens with
a call to heaven and earth to witness his declaration. From the
beginning of time, Moses asserts, the Lord had chosen Israel for a
special place among the nations of the world. He had first singled
out Israel in the desert, whence he lovingly led them into the land
of Canaan. But Israel, Moses prophesies, would abandon their
God for foreign idols. Then God would send a cruel nation to
enslave and torment the children of Israel. Eventually however,
God would have compassion on His beloved people and wreak
vengeance on Israel's tormentors. All the nations would then
behold how the Lord had avenged the blood of His servants and
had made expiation for the land of His people.
At God's command, Moses prepares to ascend mount Nebo, in
the land of Moab. From there at a distance he is to glimpse the
Promised Land and die; as Aaron had died at mount Hor.
"Because ye trespassed against Me in the midst of the children of
Israel at the waters of Meribath-kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin;
because ye sanctified Me not in the midst of the children of Israel"
(Deuteronomy 32.51).
