Jut he noted that before
judgement could be made on
whether the comments of the
Jewish leaders had any affect,
they would have to see what
proposals are offered by
special Mideast envoy Philip
Habib in Beirut.
Berman stressed that he
could not reveal what Shultz
and the other Administration
officials said but could only
report on what the Jewish
leaders told the officials. He
said there is a "perception" in
the community that the U.S. is
"not helpful" in the efforts to
achieve normalization of
relations during the
negotiations on the withdraw-
al of foreign forces from
Lebanon.
"NORMALIZATION is a
step backwards from the peace
treaty that Israel initially
wanted," Berman said. "But
it is the type of normalization
that leads to an ultimate
peace."
He said that "Lebanon is
amenable for such relations
(with Israel) and we believe it
is very important that the
United States support that
approach and suggest to the
Lebanese government that
they will back them in such
further discussion."
On the Reagan peace
initiative, Berman said it is
"clear to us that the Arab
leaders are not prepared to
come to the (negotiating)
table."

The first call on Super
Sunday will be made from the
Hyatt at 9:30 a.m. The final

call will be completed at about
9:30 p.m. Between these hours
over 400 volunteers will be
participating in what will be
one of the most exciting events

Levine to Address Plea For Soviet Jews
As we prepare for the 1983
Community Plea, emigration
of Jews from the Soviet Union
has virtually come to a halt.
The monthly figures are ex-
pected to continue downward
through the next few months
and we anticipate that less
than 3,000 Jews will reach
freedom this year.
Just three short years ago
more than 51,000 left. Since
then the entire Jewish emigra-
tion movement has come un-
der siege. Emigration activists,
while denied permission to go
to their homeland, Israel, or to
join relatives in the West,
continue to be harassed and
arrested. Prisoners of Con-
science languish in prison,
labor camps, and exile. POC
Anatoly Sharansky continues
his hunger strike to protest to
camp authorities the cutting
off of all his mail.
While the situation is bleak,
the spark has not been extin-
guished. Jews in the USSR still
continue to study Hebrew, to
discuss culture and tradition,
and to share in Jewish rituals.
They do this at great risks to
themselves and their families.
This year's Community Plea
highlights our deep concern
and commitment to the
American people and our
government, while at the same
time communicating to Soviet
authorities in the strongest
terms that we protest their ac-
tions against Jews in the
USSR.
The Plea will be held on
Thursday, February 3, 1983,
1:30 p.m. at Temple Israel:
1901 North Flagler Drive,
West Palm Beach. The entire
community is encouraged to
Jacqueline Levine
attend. The keynote Speaker

Challenge and Response
The Case for the 1983 Jewish Federation-
United Jewish Appeal Campaign
CHALLENGE:
What are some of the specific needs that must be met by dollars donated to
the Israel Special Fund?
RESPONSE:
The Sheltered Workshop (Hameshakem) is a social program that serves 8,000
elderly and handicapped Israelis aged 18 to 86. There are 43 offices and 100
workshops located throughout Israel. The criteria for admission include a pro-
vision that the person must be so seriously handicapped that he or she cannot
work in any other environment. Many have handicaps so severe that they can
only work on their backs, or lying in some other position. The waiting list for
the sheltered workshops is larger than the number of people it actually serves.
If we fail in our efforts to raise the needed funds for these programs, the
number of persons cut from the program will be in direct proportion to the
amount of the budget that is cut. Most of the 8,000 elderly and handicapped
served by this program would, if dropped, cease to function in society, or to
participate in basic human activities, and would become an additional burden
on Israeli society.
RESPONSE:
One hundred and fifteen old age homes today serve 8,000 senior citizens.
Eighty-five of the homes serve the frail and infirm; 30 serve the chronically ill
Two-thousand four-hundred of the 8,000 residents cannot support themselves
and rely partially or wholly on subsidies. In the coming fiscal year, subsidies for
the elderly in homes will total $5-million.
The homes are located in towns and cities throughout Israel.
If we fail in our efforts to raise the needed funds for the old age homes, thous-
ands of these Jewish senior citizens, who gave so much of themselves so that we
may live as free Jews, may be denied the opportunity to live out their remaining
years in dignity, and in health.

Transportation
Lifeline For The Elderly
By LOUSE ROSS
Assistant News Coordinator
Jack Kant, a senior citizen
living in the Palm Beach
County community, doesn't
mind taking the COTRAN bus
from Century Village to the
Jewish Community Center on
Okeechobee Blvd., a short trip
which, nevertheless, takes him
one hour and forty-five
minutes. Characteristically, he
says, "When 1 was 93, I could
do it easily. Now that I'm 96,
it's harder."
Kant and others like him
who don't need to use the
transportation service
provided by the Compre-
hensive Senior Service Center
of the JCC, leave the spaces
open for those who really must
take advantage of the service.
The CSSC provides a federally
funded transportation service
which is a lifeline for the
elderly isolated in their homes,
needing to visit doctors,
spouses in nursing homes or
hospitals, shop for food, or
who require other transporta-
tion assistance.
In 1977, the CSSC received
a Federal Grant through Title
111 of the Older Americans Act
to provide transportation for
the transit disachantaged 60
years of age or older. Origin-
ally, service was limited to
transporting seniors to doc-
tor's offices, social service
agencies, treatment centers,
hospitals, nursing homes and
shopping. No*, as a result of
an additional grant from the
Department of Transporta-
tion's Urban Mass Transit Act
which provided funds for two
new vehicles, service has been
expanded to include transpor-
tation to recreational and
educational activities. At this
time, the JCC is developing
the program for groups who
wish to be taken to a variety of
places such as shopping, to the
theater, to the JCC for
programs, and for trips and
outings both in the daytime
and in the evening. A
moderate group fee is charged
to cover the vehicle and driver
expense. Also, a van equipped
with lift is available to trans-
port handicapped individuals.
According to Jean Rubin,
Present at the Business and Professional Steering Committee
Meeting of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County on
Dec. 27, 1982. were: [Left to right] Elbe Halperin. chair-
person of the Business and Professional Women's Group; Susan
Wolf-Schwartz, a participant in the Business and Professional
W omen's Cameo Mission; Lynne Fhrlich [standing], director of
the Women's Division; Dr. Haviva Laagenauer, chairman of
the Jan. Sth Business and Professional Women's Group
Meeting; Renee Kessler; Robin Stem, and Doris Shaw. Also
attending her first Business and Professional Women's Group
Planning meeting was the newest member of the Halperin
family, Robin.

director of the CSSC, people
participating in the Title III
program contribute whatever
they can for the service. "We
hand out envelopes on the bus
and ask for voluntary contri-
butions. The money that is
collected helps us expand the
service."
The description of the
federally funded programs can
get very technical. But the
senior citizens who call the
dispatchers to make appoint-
ments for transportation are
only concerned with getting
from place A to place B in a
timely, comfortable manner.
And if the positive, compli-
mentary comments of those
who use the service attest to its
value, then it is a success in
meeting their needs.
Charles Jarow, 88, cannot
say enough about how the
CSSC transportation service
has helped him. According to
Jarow, they do everything they
can to assist him. "1 had bron-
chitis and was home for five
weeks. The dispatcher at the

CSSC office called to find out
if everything was alright be-
cause I had not been using the
service for my regular shop-
ping trip lately. They really
care." Jarow is impressed by
the regular service he receives
but the concern that is
exhibited by all who are in-
volved with the transportation
program is most remarkable to
him. "They go out of their
way to help in every way they
can."
If Ann Endelman didn't tut
the CSSC transportation,
would take her 3 hours on i
public bus to go to Com-
munity Hospital to visit ha
husband, instead of the hall I
hour it now takes her. "Whu

man. If space is not available
on the bus, she is put on 11

His efforts in behalf of the

Israel's Ambassador to the U.S.
volve them formally in prepa-
rations for the International
Conference on the Question of
Palestine to be convened this
year by the UN in Paris.
THE EXCUT1VE Commit-
tee of the Conference of
NGOs, the umbrella body of
non-governmental groups
having consultative status with
the UN, was concluding its
first session since last
month's elections at which the
WJC succeeded in attaining a
seat.
As the session drew to a
close, a surprise motion was
introduced urging the NGO
grouping "to cooperate in the
preparations for the Interna-
tional Conference on the
Question of Palestine con-
vened under General Assem-
bly resolution 36-120, to take
place at UNESCO in Paris, in
August." The motion speci-
fied that NGO cooperation be
through "a commission or
working group."
Gerhart Riegner, WJC Sec-
retary-General, was the lone
voice to speak in opposition.
He argued that the Executive
should deal with matters that
unite NGOs, not divide
them. The Executive, he
added, had the right to review
all UN conferences but was
under no obligation to deal
with each of them.
Following difficult negotia-
tions behind closed doors,
agreement was reached that
the NGO Executive would not
consider questions relating to
NGO participation in the Pal-
estine Conference.
Herman Linshes worked
very hard over the last few
years as chairman for the Jew-
ish Federation of Palm Beach
County-United Jewish Appeal
campaign in Lake Clarke
Gardens and Boundbrook.
Through his efforts, a fine
level of giving has been at-
tained.
"We are focusing this year
on upgrading the existing gifts
in our condominiums as the
increasing needs of this
campaign spur us on to greater
efforts," stated Linshes.
Herman Linshes moved to
Palm Beach County from
Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania
where he owned and operated
a retail ladies fashion store.
He was a past president of his
temple's Men's Club and was
a board member of the Mason
Lodge there.
Now retired, Linches is a
past president of Temple Beth
Sholom's Men's Club and is
presently on the temple's
Board of Directors. He is a
member of the board of Tel
Aviv Chapter of B'nai B'rith.
In addition to his role as
chairman of the con-
dominium's 1983 Jewish Fed-
eration of Palm Beach
County-United Jewish Appeal
campaign, he is an active par-
ticipant in the Federation's
Chaplain Aides Program.

the golf tournament will be
held on Feb. 16.
Several teen-agers from the
Palm Beach Jewish communi-
ty participated in various
programs in Israel last
summer. They would like to
share their experiences and
emotional reactions to Israel
with interested groups and
have made themselves
available as speakers.
The students had a choice of
various programs including
High School in Israel, USY
Pilgrimage, NFTY Tours,
ZOA, Hadassah, Young
Judea and the Israel Con-
nection. Most received scho-
larships from the Jewish Fed-
eration of Palm Beach
County, many as a result of
attending the Federation
sponsored Midrasha-Judaica
High School for three years.
Since returning from Israel
several of the students have
shared their experiences with
the community by writing
articles which appeared in the
Jewish Floridian and by ap-
pearing on the Federation
sponsored television program,
"Mosaic." "They arc ar-
ticulate and enthused about
their experiences and have
expressed their desire to speak
about what they learned in
Israel," slated Ann Lynn
Lipton, Jewish Education
Coordinator for the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County and coordinator of
youth education scholarships.
The following youth ex-
pressed their desire to be
available as speakers: Toby
Kosowski and Joyce Lampert
who attended the USY
Pilgrimage; Judy Wolfson
who took part in the Hadassah
Pilgrimage; Larry Hymowitz
Tami Lesser, Jeff Kuvin,
Mara Goodman, Susan Tenzer
and Robin David who at-
tended High School in Israel.

Israeli-Syrian Partnership?
But all this is from the Israeli point of
view. In what sense do the others not trust
the Israelis? One obviously is that the
Israelis are insisting upon the exit first of
the Palestinians, followed by the Syrians,
after which the Israelis themselves say
they will depart.
Another is Israel's call for Early Warn-
ing Systems to be set up in southern
Lebanon and the exclusion of UNIFIL
forces within the 25-mile area north of the
Israeli-Lebanese border.
This is a demand that suggests especial-
ly to the Arabs that Israel has secret ambi-
tions for a chunk of Lebanese territory.
Both together were the substance of the
bruhaha surrounding the early stages of
the negotiations which the Lebanese found
absolutely unacceptable.
In the face of all of this suspicion, do the
talks as they now shape up seem destined
for success? Hardly, for new rumors seem
to be brewing of the most impossible
alliance of all.
Monday, the Israelis found it necessary
to deny reports that they have arrived at a
secret agreement with the Syrians no less,
an agreement establishing spheres of in-
fluence in Lebanon for each.
Why not such a rumor? It establishes for
the Arabs the credibility of their belief that
the Israelis have wanted a chunk of
Lebanon from the beginning. In the end,
the negotiations hardly matter, since
events will take their turn in Lebanon in
the same way that they took their turn in
Egypt following the Camp David accord.
Despite the talk to the contrary. Despite
the rumors.
Happy State of Affairs
In Dallas, Tex., the other week, there
was a real breakthrough in relations
between Jews and Christians. Site was a
conference bringing together seminary
students and faculty from major Catholic,
Protestant and Jewish institutions
throughout the nation.
By all accounts, the results were
phenomenal. It turned out that not one of
the Christian seminarians had ever talked
in any meaningful way with a Jew before
a pretty dismal state of affairs for future
leaders of American Christendom.
By the end of the two-day seminar spon-
sored by the American Jewish Committee,
young Christian men and women testified
that this had been one of the most
important religious experiences of their
lives. They were, they declared, now
determined to wash themselves clean of the
negative stereotypes they held about Jews
and Judaism.
They were, they asserted, now
determined to develop a positive apprecia-
tion of Judaism and the Jewish people. If
true, this is indeed a happy state of affairs.
Endowment Fund Plannim
Relief From The
Marriage Tax Penalty!
By LEONARD H. CARTER,
CPA.JD
A new line and a new com-
putation schedule will appear
on 1982 tax forms to take care
of the marriage deduction
where both spouses work and
earn income.
Heretofore, two-earner
married couples filing joint re-
turns usually suffered a tax
higher than would have been
paid if each had filed as single
persons. This situation has in-
duced couples to divorce at the
end of a year and then remarry
shortly thereafter. Of course,
the Internal Revenue Service
ignored the divorce and re-
marriage as a sham, and its
position has been supported
by the Courts.
The tax relief is in the form
of a deduction from gross in-
come of the lower earning
spouse in the amount of five
percent in 1982 and ten per-
cent in 1983 and thereafter of
the lesser of (1) $30,000, or (2)
(he amount ol such spouse's
earned income. Larned in-

An example of how this de-
duction works is as follows:
H. earns $30,000 and W. earns
$20,000 W. must use her car in
connection with her salary and
consequently deducts $1,000
as automobile expenses on the

butes the maximum $2,000 to

'The Love of Elspeth Baker*
Reviewed by
MARJORIE DREIER
The need for more struc-
tured spiritual sustenance,
seems to motivate our young
people to greater exploration
of the many avenues open to
them. Many of our Jewish
youth have left their assimi-
lated homes to wander
through what they have felt
are more interesting and
satisfying vistas, ranging from
Hare Krishaa to Zen, with
something more than a nod to
the Reverend Moon. It is an
amorphous need for discip-
line, poorly expressed by our
"Me Generation?"
Myron Kaufman attempts
to answer these questions in
his latest novel, "The Love Of
Elspeth Baker." Elspeth is a
young, well-brought-up girl,
who, while still a freshman at
Mount Holyoke discovers that
she is pregnant. Her middle-
class parents belong to a Tem-
ple. They observe Rosh
Hashonah and Yom Kippur
make a stab at Passover Seder
(one) and have discarded all
the other rituals which
separate Jews from the non-
Jewish community. They are
stunned by Elspeth's views,
and her father insists that she
marry the father of her child.
This, she refuses to do, much
to her father's chagrin.
Her mother takes her to a
gynecologist for an abortion,
and suddently, Elspeth walks
out of the operating room and
decides that she will have her
child despite parental and
societal disapproval.
Meanwhile, the family, as-
similated though it be, is
involved in what they consider
a minor tragedy the
marriage of a nephew to a
non-Jewish girl and a major
Family Experience
In Israel Offered
The Young Leadership
Division of the World Zionist
Organization, Dor Hemshech,
is offering a unique experience
in Israel this summer called
"Scratch the Surface and
Strike Roots." Families can
participate in a one month stay
in the State of Israel to explore
their Jewish roots. They are
offered the opportunity to
strike roots in Israel and dig
deeper to get the feeling of an
exciting, meaningful life there.
Dor Hemshech's goal is to
develop and train a new gener-
ation of young Zionist leaders.
As such, it initiates and
organized programs through-
out the world for young ac-
tivists, helping them deepen
their knowledge of Zionism,
commitment to Israel and the
Jewish people, and to enhance
their desire to serve the Jewish
community proudly and effec-
tively.
Families who are en-
couraged to participate in this
program are limited to adults
up to the age of 45. Children
must be six years or older. A
moderately furnished apar-
tment in the local Absorption
Center of a developing town
will be provided for a three
week stay during mid July to
mid August.
During the morning adults
will work in Jewish National
Fund projects and children
will attend day camp with
Israeli children. Teen-agers
will work with their parents
for four hours daily. The
afternoons will be free for
shopping in local stores for
food and other needs (it is the
responsibility of each family
to provide its own food),
swimming, rest and recrea-
tion. Lectures, Hebrew
classes, meeting with Israeli
families, preparation for
weekly trips, Israeli folk
dancing and other events will
be planned for the evenings.
The experience will also
include special programs for
teens, three days in Jerusalem,
half day on a kibbutz and
three half day trips in the area.
Arrangements for Bar Mit-
zvah celebration at the
Western Wall in Jerusalem
may be made at the time of
application.
The cost is air fare plus $ 180
per adult (for land portion-not
including food and daily
needs) and $90 per child under
twelve years old. The deadline
for application is April 1. Ann
Lynn Lipton, Jewish Educa-
tion Coordinator for the Jew-
ish Federation of Palm Beach
County, will assist anyone
interested in making applica-
tion. For further information
contact Ms. Lipton at the Fed-
eration office 832-2120.
tragedy a cousin who is a
student at MIT. has joined a
deeply religious group at the
university, and will appear at
the wedding wearing a yar-
mulke. No one, in the family is
able to explain this
"aberration" and they accept
Bob's mishigass with very
poor grace but Bob remem-
bers his very orthodox old
grandfather and the inner
glow with which all his actions
were infused, and discovers
through his new acquaintances
the source of his grandfather's
calm philosophy.
Elpeth's father, finally,
cannot accept her pregnancy,
and reaches a point of hysteria
where he and his daughter
cannot live in the same house.
She leaves home, and goes to
live with an old couple in a
Boston slum. However, she
maintains a close relationship
with her mother, and her
cousin. Her mother does not
understand Elspeth's stubborn
stand but continues to be
totally supportive. Bob intro-
duces her to his religious
friends, and here she finds
more help in her questing after
all the questions she con-
tinually asks herself.
She is always ready to listen
to those who have habitually
set the standards for her, and
now, she finds she cannot
accept these standards.
Slowly, she finds she can think
for herself. Very often she
reaches a conclusion which
affects her life, but she is
unable to trace the logical pro-
gression which has led to that
conclusion. Why has she
decided to have her baby?
Why has she refused, at the
very last minute, to permit
adoption? Why has she
refused a advantageous
proposal of marriage on the
very eve of the wedding? And
why does she elope with her
cousin, Bob, on the day of her
wedding?
The instruction in Judaism
that she has received at her
cousin's hand, and through his
friends, has supplied her with
many of the answers she
needs. The adherance to tradi-
tion the very repetition of
ritual offers her the structure
her life had always lacked.
Mr. Kaufman, with his
usual keen insight into the per-
sonality of a young woman,
has written an eminently pro-
vocative and readable novel. It
comes highly recommended
and may be found at the Tem-
ple Israel Library.

News in Brief
ByJTA Services
WASHINGTON Former
presidents Ford and Carter
|ave called Israel's settlement
)licy on the West Bank the
najor obstacle" to moderate
^rab countries joining the
liddle bast peace process.
"Israel must halt its settle-
bent policy a move that
lone might break the
pplomatic log jam," the
krmer Presidents said in a
>inily copywritten article in
he forthcoming February
|cadcrs Digest.
r'ord and Carter, bitter riv-
|s in the 1976 Presidential
funpaign, became friends
hen they went to the funeral
Lgyptian President Anwar
adat. They have issued
|veral joint statements on
rious subjects but this is
leir first on the Middle East.
Iieir article was in response to
request Irom Readers Digest
r their analysis on how to
Jhieve peace in the Mideast.
I lie two former Presidents
a called on the Arab coun-
les lo demonstrate "the
burage to step forward to
Igotiate for a Palestinian
>mcland with an Israel that
ley recognize as a fellow
llion." In particular, they
|ged King Hussein of Jordan
join the autonomy
Igotiations which they said
Viuld be a "dramatic
feture" that could put the
bvernment of Israeli Premier
lenacliem Begin "under im-
Vnse pressure to recipro-
Ite."

fined if certain conclusions
pe drawn on the basic of
cr original testimony.
>iiice the warning was
ped, six of the nine senior
I'tical and military officials
er reappeared before the
RJmission, were represented
legal counsel or submitted
uen responses to questions
sed by fellow witnesses.
'remier Menachem Begin,
feign Minister Yitzhak
Pmir and chief of army in-
f'gence Gen. Yehoshua
i"y did not avail themselves
he opportunity to reap-
M". examine evidence and
tstion witnesses. Each
pitted letters to the com-
mon essentially reaffirming
llr original testimony with-
| explanation or embellish-
Pt.
The commission will now
have to sift through 12,000
documents and other evidence
collected over the past 2lA
months. There was no in-
dication as to when its final
report and recommendation
will be ready.
PARIS The Bolivian
public prosecutor, Hernando
Acha Siles, has asked the
Supreme Court to extradite
Klaus Altmann, who as Klaus
Barbie was known as the
"butcher of Lyon" during the
Nazi occupation of France, to
West Germany, according to
French radio reports from La
Paz.
Acha Siles told the court
that West Germany had de-
manded his extradiction for
war crimes and genocide and
that the extradition request
should be honored because the
two countries have an extradi-
tion treaty.
Barbie, who fled to South
America after the war and ob-
tained Bolivian citizenship un-
der the name of Altmann, has
been accused of the depor-
tation and death of thousands
of Jews and French resistance
fighters.
The French government,
which sentenced him to death
in absentia after the war for
crimes he committed while he
served as a gestapo chief in
Lyon, has several limes asked
for his extradition.
TEL AVIV -A special ap-
peals committee recently set
up by the Israel army has rec-
ommended the release of 150
Palestinian prisoners of the
5,400 detained for the past
eight months at Ansar camp in
south Lebanon.
Army sources said some of
the detainees have already
been turned over to the Inter-
national Red Cross for return
to their homes. The appeals
committee so far has heard the
cases of only 1,100 detainees.
Leah Tzimel, a Jerusalem
lawyer who frequently defends
members of the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization, charged
that the army established the
appeals committee only under
international pressure and just
a day before the Israel
Supreme Court was to hear an
appeal against the Ansar
detentions last November, six
months after the war in Leba-
non started.
PARIS President Fran-
cois Mitterrand returned last
week to the Rue des Rosiers
restaurant where an Arab hit
squad killed six people last
August. Mitterrand this time
came just for the pleasure of a
typical Jewish meal at Jo Gol-
denberg's deli where the attack
had taken place.
The President, accompanied
by his Jewish brother-in-law,
Roger Hanin, and a young
Jewish politician. Roger
Gerard Schwartzenberg, arrive
unannounced and unexpected.
Last time Mitterrand visited
the Rue des Rosiers was on the
day following the attack when
he attended funeral services
for the victims.
This time, the President, in
a good mood, chose a shmaltz
herring, piroshkis and boiled
beef with horseradish, washed
down with a glass or two of
vodka.
It was not just a gastronom-
ic treat. Eyewitnesses told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency,
Mitterrand also wanted to
show his solidarity with the
people in the "Pletzel," the
old Jewish ghetto. He sat for
close to three hours with Jo
Goldenberg and some of his
customers to "chew the fat"
and discuss the situation.

Teaching Torah to The Modern Jew
By RABBI
JOEL II\IN1
Temple Judea
President, Palm Beach
County Board of Rabbis
Every evening service in-
cludes lhe precious siatement
Irom tradition, ke hem
i-hayenu ve-oreach yamenu,
I orah is the life and the length
of our days. In this spirit, the
Palm Beach County Board of
Rabbis lias created the Torah
Asscmby as a community
vehicle lo help give each of us
the tools to effectively study
and appreciate Torah.
I his year, we are bringing to
oui community Kabbi w.
Gunthci Plaut, one of the
niOM acclaimed I orah inter-
ptvteis ol our lime. Rabbi
Plaut Mill be delivering two
lectures Sunday, Jan. 30 at
lemplc Beth II; 2815 North
I lagler Drive. I he program
begins with continental break-
last at 9 a.m. and concludes at
12:30 p.m. Temple Beth LI has
graciously given the Board of
Rabbis their magnificent
I read Sanctuary lor Rabbi
Plaut's lectures, lour con-
current workshops will serve
as an intermission between the
lectures in order to provide a
laboratory lor intimate Torah
Mud). Each workshop will be
led by members ol" the Board
of Rabbis and will reflect the
Rabbi Joel Levine
diversity of Torah interpreta-
tion, which is one ol" the
unique treasures of Judaism.
Ample time will be given to
react to Rabbi Plaut's present-
ation. As the editor of Torah:
A Modern Commentary, the
first commentary to be pub-
lished in almost fifty years,
Rabbi Plaut certainly will
provide us with thought pro-
voking discussion starters.
Our Torah Assembly will be
Rabbi Plaut's first American
appearance since his return
Irom an extensive lecture tour
of Australia and New
Zealand. Members of the
Canadian Jewish community,
of which he is their outstand-
ing leader know that any
appearance by Rabbi Plaut is
not to be missed. 1 feel that
our Canadian brethren are
absolutely correct. The entire
Board of Rabbis would be
proud of our community if, on
Jan. 30, the Fread Sanctuary
of Temple Beth El would be
filled with an intergeneraiional
representation of thoughtful
people from our community.
The study of Torah is a
privclcge which a free and
democratic society affords
every Jew, regardless of age or
background. Rabbi Plaut
teaches Torah memorable.
Registration forms are
available from your synagogue
or from Federation. All my
colleagues on the Board of
Rabbis are looking forward to
greeting you and to studying
with you.

EEC Dela ration
Recognizes PLO 'State
By EDWIN EYTAN
STRASBOURG (JTA)
The European Parliament,
the legislative body of the 10
members-state European
Economic Community, called
on Israel and the Palestinians
"to recognize each other's
existence" and start peace ne-
gotiations. The Parliament
also adopted by a large
majority a resolution calling
on Israel "to stop at once the
creation of new settlements in
the occupied territories."
The European Parliament
formerly headed by Simone
Veli of France, used to be one
ol the staunchest pro-Israel in-
ternational forums. However,
since the start of the war in
Lebanan last June, the climate
has changed, diplomatic ob-
servers say. The resolution
submitted by the Socialist
group, were the most anti-
Israeli yet to be adopted.
One of the resolutions
asserts the Palestinians right to
self-determination "which
could lead to the eventual
creation of a Palestinian
state." This is the first time
!
the EEC Parliament hasm,
tioned this possibility which,
previous joint Europe
communiques, such as
Venice Declaration of \m
have systematically avoided,
The Parliament also agrJ
that a "favorable pol.J
climate now prevails *J
paid special tribute to tJ
Venice Declaration, Presidentl
Reagan's peace proposals anil
the Arab League plan drai|
up at their summit meeting ill
Fez, Morocco last September]
The Parliamentarians also!
stated that the PLO should!
normally and legally take pan
in future Mid-east peace neto-l
tiations but affirmed thai the I
PLO must first remove froml
its convenant all articles whidl
call, directly or indirectly, fa

We want to give you three words of
wisdom: Old is Smart. We've seen it
all in our lifetimes marriages and
children, wars and depression. The best of times, and the worst.
When it came to pre-arranging our funerals, we wanted to be sure of ourselves.
Each of us wanted to know exactly where the money was going and what it
was paying for. We wanted to know that everything would be covered, and
that there would be no extra "incidental" costs. That meant funeral, grave,
clergy, newspapers everything. And we wanted to be able to get all our
money back if we ever needed it.
So, we looked at Riverside's Guardian. We all shopped around, and we found
that the first such guarantee in Florida every time, no matter what is at
Levitt-Weinstein. Period.
Every day, more and more of us are discovering the Levitt-Weinstein
Guaranteed Security Plan"!*1 And, do you know what? Once we sign up, we feel
more secure and at ease. We feel very smart. How do you feel?

Were Jews Barred In World War II
By ARNOLD AGES
TORONTO (JTA) -
Shock waves are still rever-
berating over Canada in the
wake of a book published in
Toronto a little over four
months ago. The book,
"None Is Too Many" (Lester,
Open and Denys), by his-
torians Irving Abella and
Harold Troper, both residents
of Toronto, reveals that be-
fore and during World War II,
the Canadian government
pursued a policy of actively
excluding Jews from entry into
the country.
This revelation, the result of
monumental archival excava-
tions conducted by the two re-
searchers in Ottawa, has come
as a surprise to most Canadian
Jews. While there was a per-
ception that the Canadian
government between 1933 and
1948 was reluctant to facilitate
Jewish immigration to
Canada, no one before Abella
and Troper ever realized the
scope and intensity of
Canada's anti-Jewish bias.
ABELLA AND Troper in-
dicate in their book that one
man, Charles Blair, was the
Mr. Jerry Thompson, Inves-
tigative reporter for The
Nashville Tennessean was the
keynote speaker at the recently
held Meeting On Extremism at
Temple Israel. Mr. Thompson
infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan
and is the author of "My Life
In The Klan."
major executor of Canada s
exclusionary immigration
policies towards Jews. As a
Deputy Minister for Immigra-
tion, assigned, for obscure
bureaucratic reasons, to tnc
Department of Mines and
Technical Surveys, Blair had
the responsibility to discharge
the policies of the government
of Prime Minister Mackenzie
King.
Blair discharged them with a
cruel zeal. Authors Abella and
Troper show in their devastat-
ing indictment that Blair was
an unrepentant anti-Semite
who was so secure in his posi-
tion that he left behind ample
documentation filled with
scurrilous anti-Semitic re-
marks. At one point during
the early years of the war,
BJair described Jews trying to
get into Canada as "pigs at the
feeding trough."
WHMWHimilllii I
The Local Concerns Task Force of the Community Relations
Council of The Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County in
cooperation with the American Jewish Committee recently held
a Meeting On Extremism at Temple Israel. An overflowing
crowd was in attendance.

myself who would be under
great hardship without this
service. I just wish the vans
were bigger to accommodate
more people."
Public transportation in
Palm Beach County is inade-
quate for older adults and as a
result there is a demand for the
CSSC transportation service.
However, the area serviced
under Title HI is limited by the
terms of the federal grant to
an area from the ocean to the
turnpike and from Southern
Blvd. to 25th Street. The DOT
program is more flexible.
Presently, it is too expensive
to send a van to the north part
of the county to bring to the
JCC an elderly woman who
needs to socialize with others.
Stated Jean Rubin, "In ad-
dition to individual client
contributions, we receive
funding from the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County. With increased com-
munity funds, someday that
isolated, needy person in the
north county and others like
her will be helped." However,
there are other federally
funded agencies that service
people who live outside of the
area serviced by the CSSC
transportation system.
While Blair was the main in-
strument in blocking Jewish
immigration into Canada he
was not, according to Abella
and Troper, acting unilateral-
ly. In fact, he was expressing
the views of the Cabinet and
the Canadian people, especial-
ly the inhabitants of Quebec,
Canada's French-speaking
province.
DURING THE 1930s, more
than 100,000 signatures were
collected on a petition organ-
ized by a French-Canadian
group to protest the prospec-
tive immigration of European
Jews. Newspapers in the
province of Quebec published
flagrantly anti-Semitic ar-
ticles.
In their meticulous research
into the period, Abella and
Troper have unearthed details
about certain Canadian po-
litical figures who later rose to
great prominence in Canada.
The information does not re-
flect well upon them.
Vincent Massey (brother of
movie great Raymond Mas-
sey), lionized by the Canadian
Jewish Congress in the 1950s
as "a righteous gentile,"
emerges in the Abella-Troper
document as an eminence grise
who, during his days in Lon-
don, as an official Canadian
diplomat, sent cables to Prime
Minister King aspersing the
quality of European Jews in
language of an unsavory tone,
and suggesting that Sudenten
Germans would make much
belter immigrants for Aryan
'Canada.
CHARLOTTE WHITON,
now deceased but once the
most flamboyant and feisty
mayor of Ottawa, worked in-
defatigably in the early 1940s
to prevent the rescue of Jewish
children from the European
cauldron. Her interests were
devoted exclusively to saving
British children.
Lester Pearson, later to be-
come Prime Minister, the win-
ner of the Nobel Peace Prize in
1956 for his role in the crea-
tion of the United Nations
Emergency Force, is portrayed
as an ambitious politician who
was ready to go along with
Mackenzie King's anti-Jewish
rulings.
Ernest Lapointe, King's
Quebec colleague, is depicted
in the Abella-Troper volume
as the representative of Que-
bec's fiercely anti-Jewish pub-
lic opinion. He warned the
Canadian Prime Minister that
the entry of Jews would
alienate Quebeckers, the
major supporters of the
Liberal Party. King accepted
Lapointe's warning.
ABELLA INDICATES that
his research has already pro-
duced three results. Ron
Atkey, Minister of Immigra-
tion in the shortlived Joe
Clark government, said, after
being exposed to A Delia's
revelation, that he did not
want to go down in history as
"the Charles Blair of the 80s"
during discussions about the
admittance of Vietnamese
"boat people."
Canada's current Minister
ol Immigration, Lloyd
Axworthy, said recently, in a
meeting where Ah<
