Geriatric Center To Memorialize Joseph L. Morse
The name of Joseph Laffan
lorse has stood for years as a
vnibol of one of the most
ridely read encyclopedias in
he world Funk and
iagnalls Standard Reference
Incyclopedia. Soon that name

jality of care for the elderly
this community, when the
new Joseph Laffan Morse
Geriatric Center, a beneficiary
agency of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County is
named on March 24. The
Geriatric Center, which will
open its doors this summer,
has successfully completed its
initial capital fund drive, due
to a generous gift from the
Morse family.
According to his wife
Claudia, the late Joseph L.
Morse was a very special
human being ... a man who
"loved everybody, gave to
everybody and thought all
people were basically good."
Mrs. Morse wanted to do
something special to

Jeanne Levy, President of
the Jewish Federation and a
long-time friend of the Morse
family, has fond memories of
Joseph Morse. "If in your
lifetime you have the oppor-
tunity to meet one such a
person, you are very fortu-
nate." She recalls a sincere
man who "treated everyone
with kindness." He was a re-
markable human being, who
was very modest about his ac-
complishments." Joseph
Morse's philanthropy went far
beyond the giving of dollars.
Mrs. Levy tells how in addi-
lion to giving money for col-
lege scholarships, he look a
personal interest in each one
of the students by helping
them choose the proper
courses and by monitoring

From Holocaust To Rebirth:
A Rabbi Travels To Poland And France
Assistant News Coordinator
The Jewish community of
Poland is d>ing.
Going to France after
Poland is like going from
darkness to light, from the
past to the present, where
there is hope for the future.
These were some of the im-
pressions of Rabbi Howard
Shapiro of Temple Israel who
recently returned from a Rab-
binic Mission to Poland and
France under the auspices of
the L rated Jewish Appeal. He
went with a group of 13 rabbis
to demonstrate to the Polish
government that the uprising
of the \* arsaw Ghetto was still
remembered in this, the year
or its 40th anniversary. In
addition, he witnessed the ef-
forts of the Joint Distribution
Committee in those two coun-

of three and a half million

the population. Jews had lived
there for one thousand years
there were Jews in Poland
before there were Christians.
In Poland. Rabbi Shapiro
expected to meet more
pathetic people, people
trapped with no future and
who basically lived on that
level. But he was pleasantly
surprised to meet Mrs.
Jacobovitch. the leader of the
Krakow Jewish community.
"She was the exception, a very
remarkable woman, very car-
ing and committed to the Jew-
ish community." With no
Jewish future, according to
Rabbi Shapiro, she and her
husband made the decision to
stay in Poland after the war
where thev re-established their
furniture factory. Some say
she was promised the world to
come bv her Chassidic rabbi H
she would stay and serve as the
leader of this remnant com-
munitv. In any event, they
realized that they were the
community's only hope. After
her husband's death in 1979.
Mrs. Jacobovitch continued to
lead the community. The Jews
in Krakow are employed,
mostly in her furniture fac-
tory, 'in Krakow, the Jews
don't beg.
There are three synagogues
in Krakow, one of which is a
museum while the other two
are operating with minyons.
Krakow is dying with dignity
as opposed to the Warsaw
community which has only
one synagogue, whereas in

only for show.
The rabbis saw the Institute
for Jewish Research in War-
saw where there is an archive
ol old Jewish manuscripts.
"The archive was closed to us
which was very symbolic to
me," staled Rabbi Shapiro.
"Here you are with 13 rabbis
who could appreciate these
manuscripts and all we were
allowed to see was one beauti-
ful, old Ketuba. Even the Jews
responsible for maintaining
this archive were very fearful

Presidents Who've Struck Out
We live in a unique time. Three ex-
Presidents walk among us. This may be a
tribute to medical science, which regularly
makes such progress in the field of aging
that all our life expectancies seem on the
increase. But not all of us are ex-Presi-
dents. When they live longer, they can con-
tinue to bring their collective wisdom to the
nation, gleaned by their broad experience,
even after they have left office.
Or they can sit there like exhausted
ducks, some of them symbolic of disgrace
or just plain repudiation, contaminating
the atmosphere of America's political reali-
Unfortunately for us. these days there
seems to be more of the latter than the
former from ex-Presidents Nixon. Ford and
Carter. Whether it be the greed and
rapaciousness for power that characterized
at least two of them, or the unrelenting
foot-in-mouth disease that continues to af-
flkt the last of them, what we experience in
our surviving ex-Presidents is not so much
wisdom as wooliness.
For President Carter, the wooliness is
accompanied by a now wearying sense of
evangelism in his soul that he can best jus-
ury his four years in office by bringing
peace to the Middle East. There was con-
sumate arrogance in his belief that he could
do that in the first place when he sat in the
Oral Office.
Still. Camp David came closest to a
success he could point to in his one term
a success that never quite disguised
his other abysmal failure: the humiliating
hostage-taking scenario staged in Iran, and
dilemma out of which Carter tried to crack
the nation with an even more humiliating
hush-hush military rescue operation that
died on :he sands of the Iranian desert well
before it could get to Teheran
-nee the past galls Mr Carter, he
npantii much of :he present trying to
correct it His book. "Keeping the Faith, a
my stifj lag fa evoted to his four
years in office, is one example of this. It is
histor> a ay that bears little relation-
ship to reality Unfortunately, it devotes so
many pages to Camp David, but that is the
lopsided nature of the Carter years there
was too little to show for them And so his
weakness, contrasted by notning. appears
all too glaring. Nor does the Carter ob-
session end now.
He^xe. his trip to the Middle East tins
week, which began with a stopover m Cairo
and some meetings with PLO people. It is a
mark of Mr. Carter's diplomacy that he
steps into things long after everyone else
has stepped out.
And so. it escapes him that the for-
tunes of the PLO are these days on the de-
cline in Egypt and elsewhere in Araby.
too. For him. nothing has changed. If the
past must be justified and made to "work.'
then it must be done so on grounds that
only he can understand. They are yester-
day's. not today 5
No wonder the State Department
shrugged and said little when it learned of
Ms meeting with the PLO. It was not so
much that UJS. policy remains not to talk
with the PLO until it recognizes Israel s
right to exist.

A weapon against the com-
mon cold, far more effective
than hot toddies or Vitamin C,
has been developed by an Is-
raeli group at the Weizmann
Institute of Science. Called the
Rhinotherm, it's a device
which eliminates runny noses,
sneezing, and that miserable
dragged-out feeling brought
on by a cold virus. The box-
shaped unit has also proved
effective in halting symptoms
of allergies, including hay
fever. The Israeli company
producing the Rhinotherm al-
ready has a considerable
market in European countries.

The recently concluded
Lutheran World Federation
declared: "We regret the way
in which what Luther wrote
has been used to further anti-
Semitism" and urged all mem-
ber churches "to make a fair
and correct presentation of
Judaism in all their teaching
and preaching." A Statement
was circulated declaring that
"we Christians today must
purge ourselves of any hatred
of the Jews and any sort of
teaching of contempt for
Judaism." Yet, our Post
Master General, Wm. Bolger
is issuing a stamp honoring
Martin Luther, infamous for
his vitriolic hatred of the Jews
in all his writings.
A pro-Arab propaganda
network is engaged in a
heavily financed campaign to
change American public
opinion and policy in the mid-

tact with people close to or in-

Because Someone Cared
following is a guest article
written by Mr. Eugene
Topperman, LCSW, staff
caseworker for the Jewish
Family and Children's Service
of Palm Beach County, Inc.
Mr. Levitt's articles will
resume in subsequent issues.

Successful adjustment to
aging is often difficult. Our
society places a heavy em-
phasis on youihfulness. This is
often further compounded by
certain life crises that are more
likely to occur in one's later
years. Several examples of
these events that can nega-
tively affect a person's self-
image during this period are:
1) Retirement and the loss of
one's identity through the job.
2) Loss of finances living on
a fixed income that wasn't
designed to keep up with
today's high inflation rates. 3)
Too much unplanned free
time. 4) Catastrophic illness.
5) Death of a spouse.
It seems to me that Ameri-
cans tend to confuse aging
wilh illness and that this mis-
conception that aging people
are physically ill people is a
stereotype that must be cor-
rected in order to help the
younger members of our com-
munity better understand what
mature age is. While "old
age" brings to almost every-
one a decline in resistance to
illness and more numerous
body aches and pains, there
are few significant psycholo-
gical changes in the healthy
older person. In part, some of
these changes are: 1) reduced
pulmonarv function, 2) lower
Kugene Topperman
renal reserve, 3) diminished
skin elasticity, 4) limited joint
mobility and, 5) reduced
vision and hearing.
The psychoanalyst, Erik H.
Erikson, noted for his work on
psycho-social development
that is the progressive interac-
tion between a person and his
environment sees the task
of mature age as the inte-
gration of one's life by the
accomplishments made in that
person's lifetime. Briefly
staled, a successful resolution
of these tasks results in inte-
grity or healthy adjustment to
"old age," while an unhealthy
resolution of these life ac-
complishments may result in
feelings of despair.
When a person shows
concern regarding how he is
adjusting to any of these
crises, often the best advice
that can be given by a friend or
relative is to see a mental
health professional so that a
realistic assessment of the
situation can be made by
someone qualified. Often a
minimum number of sessions
are needed for assessment,
development of a plan to cope
with the situation and,
hopefully, resolution of the
problem. A general rule is that
an early intervention usually
reduces the stress and helps the
person focus his energies
toward solving the problem in
a much shorter time frame.
In my role as a Geriatric So-
cial Worker, 1 have often been
asked what 1 see as the major
factor that causes stress in
later years. To me it is chronic
illness. Although the death of
a spouse can be considerably
more traumatic, our society
allows for a healthy resolution
of this crisis through grief and
mourning. Feelings of despair
and depression are seen as
normal, and in the best of
situations the community is
helpful in providing support to
the surviving spouse.
Although acute illnesses
have the same character by
their very nature, they are
time-limited in that the patient
will be cured and return to
normal levels of functioning
with chronic illness this is
not the usual case. The condi-
tion may stabilize but will
never result in a cure.
The stress that results from
the care of a chronically ill
person can be long-term. The
chronically ill person is often
angry or depressed that his
body is failing him, as well as
feeling ashamed that he is no
longer able to do things that he
once was able to master with
ease. These feelings of anger,
guilt, depression can often be
dealt with in individual
counseling sessions. On the
other hand, the spouse or
relative may feel angry about
having to assume more
responsibility for tasks. She
may become fearful as her
loved one deteriorates and
may experience anxiety as
stresses build around her.
Often the caregiver may feel
isolated; also, feelings of guilt
may be intensified, especially
in our culture which has
marriage vows that clearly
state, "in sickness and in
health." Because of this, the
'Woman Of The Year'
Palm Beach's Mrs. Henry

To Rebirth

the plays are in ^ iddish, the
Polish audience sits with head-
phones and listens to a trans-
lator as the actors speak. To
Rabbi Shapiro, this is the ulti-
mate Polish joke two-thirds
of the actors are gentile.
"The encounter with the
remnant of the Polish Jewish
community prepared me for
our trip to Auschwitz." Rabbi
Shapiro said. "It was like
walking into the dead past of
the Jewish people and that's
what we did all through Po-
land." Auschwitz is where this
once v iable Jew ish community
died. Rabbi Shapiro felt that
the experience of seeing the
-teriluv and the way every-
thing is preserved in Ausch-
witz was unreal. "Auschwitz is
a Polish National Memorial,
not Jewish. I here is little
recognition as you walk
through the museum at
Auschwitz that three million
Jews died there."
France, today, has the third
largest Jewish community in
the free world. Since the war,
the Jewish population has
grown five times to 700,000
people and the majority of
these are North Africans.
French Jews face the need to
integrate these two communi-
ties, the survivor community
and the North African com-
munity which was not touched
directly by the Holocaust.
Rabbi Shapiro found that
there are 55 Jewish Day
Schools in France today where
there were two at the end of
WWII. The Joint Distribution
Committee is very instru-
mental in the education of the
young in France. However,
Rabbi Shapiro relates, with a
"0 percent intermarriage rate
and 82 percent of Jewish chil-
dren in France receiving no
Jewish education whatsoever,
the JDC and French Jewrv has
much to do to insure the sur-
vival oi Judaism there. It must
give this new Jewish commu-
nity the wherewithal! to deal
with another displaced com-
munity, the Jews from North
Of the 13 rabbis who went
on this UJA mission, II of
them were under the age of 45
and were ol a generation who
grew up alter the events of the
Holocaust took place. "We
lived them through the study
ol history, through learning or
through films," stated Rabbi
Shapiro. "Now. we experi-
enced it."

News in Brief
Did Jewish Extremists Plant Bomb?
By JTA Report
extremist group is suspected
by police of having planted a
bomb at the entrance to the
Temple Mount last Friday as
hundreds of Moslem worship-
pers were on their way to pray
at the mosques there. The
bomb was discovered and
dismantled safely.
The incident was the second
of its kind in a week. A week
earlier a bomb exploded out-
side a Hebron mosque where
worshippers were finishing
their morning prayers. No one
was hurt, but police said the
bomb would have caused
casualties had it detonated a
lew minutes later when people
were leaving the mosque.
Arabs in the Hebron area
continue to complain of
harassment by Jewish settlers.
Leaders of the settlers have
denied any connection to the
harassment but warned they
would react strongly to rock
throwing attacks on Jews by
GENEVA A 23-year-old
Jewish medical student arres-
ted in Basel was described by
police as the perpetrator of a
campaign of virulent anti-
Semitic graffiti, harassment
and death threats in that city
last month.
The disclosure by the police
last Friday that Philip Got-.
chel, son of a prominent Jew-
ish family, was solely
responsible for the acts called
unprecedented in Switzerland,
stunned Jews and non-Jews
alike. The Jewish community
expressed deep sympathy for
the "shame and scandal to his
family." Gotchel has been
placed under psychiatric care.
The young man, nephew of
a leading physician, was said
to be an excellent student at
the Basel medical school. Most
of the anti-Semitic acts were
directed against Jewish fellow
.students, their families and
their non-Jewish friends.
Minister Yoscf Burg withdrew
as a candidate lor the Presi-
dency of Israel, despite public
support by Premier Mena-
chem Begin. He said on a
television interview that he will
not run because he insists on
broader support than the
Knesset may give him when it
selects a new President on
Mar. 22.
Burg, a veteran leader of the
National Religious Party, said
he did not want to win by a
slender majority which would
be the case because the op-
position Labor Alignment is
pushing its own candidate.
Chaim Herzog, a former
Ambassador to the United
Nations and one time chief of
military intelligence.
Some observers suggested
that Burg feared he could lose
the election which is con-
ducted by secret ballot. But
Likud is considered unlikely to
support a Labor candidate,
inasmuch as outgoing Presi-
dent Yitzhak Navon is a
former Labor MK.

The Rabbinical Corner
The Middle EastIn A Nutshell
Board of Rabbis PB County
Israel has dominated the
news media for the past half
year. For a tiny geographic en-
tity, surrounded by the oil
producing giants, to become
so newsworthy is as
phenomenal as the grudging
respect which the world, in-
cluding the super powers, has
for Israel's improved arma-
ments and military strategy.
How can we explain this
N paradoxical situation in the
Middle East? Innumerable
public relations experts and
publicists have tried, but a col-
league. Rabbi Maurice Davis,
has done it most appropriately
and made the enigma crystal
clear. I must share his ap-
proach with you.
First, the overall picture
The Soviets support Syria,
who supports Iran against
Iraq. They all hate Israel.
The United States supports
Jordan and Saudi Arabia, who
support Iraq against Iran. And
they all haic Israel.
Lgypt warns to be every-
one's friend, except Israel's.
Libya wants 10 be everyone's
Dr. Rabbi William Shapiro
enemy, especially Israel's.
Does this help you?
King Hussein of Jordan is
willing to represent the Pales-
tinians, but he needs Arafat's
permission. Arafat is willing
to give that permission, but he
will be murdered if he does,
either from within, his own
PLO or by hired assassins sup-
ported by Syria.
Hussein will possibly by-
pass Arafat (the PLO is in a
shambles anyway), but then he
would need the support of
Saudi Arabia. The Saudis
wain Jerusalem in Arab hands
and are frightened of an in-
ternal revolution. Therefore,
the Saudis cannot support
Hussein and must keep crying,
"Death to the Jews!"
Iran is trying to destroy
Iraq, who is trying to destroy
Iran, and the Ayatollah
frightens everyone involved.
Hussein would welcome the
Palestinians, but they keep re-
membering what he is trying to
forget, namely that Jordan
today is an Arab Palestinian
state, and they are Pales-
tinians. Hussein is not.
Lebanon could make peace
with Israel, but that would
squeeze out Syria, who wants
to continue confronting Israel.
Syria could not defeat Israel
even when she was allied to
Jordan and Egypt, how much
less so when left out in the
On the West Bank (ludea
and Samaria), the Palestinian
Arabs could make peace with
Israel even against the wishes
of the raggedy PLO. but they
dare not move without Jor-
dan, who dares not move
without the PLO. who dare
not move, period.
And the only constant is
hatred of Israel which proves
the ancient Arab adage
"The enemy of my enemy is
. mv enemy." So simple, so
clear, is it not so?
'To See The World
Through Jewish Eyes'
Nine children ages three and
four have enrolled in the Pre-
school program at Temple
Israel. Taught by Marcia
Brecher, the youngsters are in-
volved in a new curriculum
designed by the Union Of
American Hebrew Congrega-
tions "To See The World
Through Jewish Eyes."
As part of the program, the
class recently spent one
morning along with other stu-
dents of Temple Israel Reli-
gious School, learning to ap-
preciate the beauty of God's
wonderful world as they
planted ferns and shrubbery in
the Temple courtyard.
Ceceil Tishman, Principal,
pictured above with Will
Spencer, has announced that
the program is doing so well
that the UAHC has invited
Temple Israel to participate
next year in a new experiment-
al curriculum for the 7th, 8th
and 9th grades.
Announcements such as engagements, weddings and Bar-
Bat Mitzvahs are published as a free service by The Jewish
Horidian. Information should be sent To: 501 S. Flagler

6, Temple Israel began its last
Sunday morning Adult Edu-
cation Mini Series for the year
5743. The course will give the
background information on
what makes Israel tick and
what makes Israel so special to
us as American Jews. From
Ronald Reagan to Menachem
Begin, from Harry Truman to
David Ben Gurion, the Israel-
American connection has al-
ways been worthy of study.
The course will run Sunday,

public. For further informa-
tion contact Dick Flah, Adult
Lducation Chairperson.

If Only Israel Hangs Tough
Will Reagan Peace Plan Simply Fade ?
London Chronicle Syndicate
On December 9, 1969, then Secretary of State
William Rogers launched a detailed Arab-Israeli
peace initiative which quickly became known as
the Rogers Plan. How did the Israeli Government
of Prime Minister Golda Meir and Foreign Min-
ister Abba hban respond?
Gideon Rafael, the retired Israeli diplomat,
succinctly captured the essence of the Israeli
response in his first-rate "Destination Peace:
I hrec Decades of Israeli Foreign Police,"
published in 1981. "The government, aroused,
called home Ambassador ltzhak Rabin for con-
sultations," Rafael wrote. "He urged a vigorous
public rejection of the Rogers Plan, which he
castigated as an attempt on the very existence of
ON DECEMBER 22, the Cabinet, in fact,
sharply rejected the Rogers Plan slating publicly
"thai it prejudices peace; disregards the essential
need to determine secure and agreed borders
through the signing of peace treaties by direct
negotiations; affects Israel's sovereign rights and
security in its proposals for the solution of the
refugee question and the status of Jerusalem."
I he Israeli Cabinet communique went on to say
that "if these proposals were carried out, Israel's
securii\ and peace would be in grave danger. Israel
will not be sacrificed by any power policy, and will
reject an> attempt to impose a forced solution
upon it."
Rafael said the Israeli Government at that time
did not realize that the Rogers initiative was a
Jewish Dialogue

icligion through the discussion
ol historical highlights, holi-
days, perspectives on social
action and concerns, the
significance of Israel to both
religions and the impressions

I he Methodist-Jewish
Dialogue was initiated locally
bv Reverend William Lar-
rison. Associate Pastor,
I runts United Methodist
Church and United Methodist
Church \\ PB District Out-
reach Coordinator and Rabbi
Alan Sherman, Community
Relations Council Director of
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County. Co-chairing
the event were Buddie Brenner
and Sue Northcraft who
stressed that the dialogue must
be an ongoing process thai
radiates in all directions.
Reverend Garrison empha-
sized the importance of open
communication. "If you have
been moved by this Methodist-
Jewish Dialogue experience,
get people from your congre-
gation and from a nearby
church to meet together
regularly to discuss ways to
promote interfaith under-
warning sign, pointing to Washington s resolve to
terminate the escalation of fighting and tne
widening of the Soviet involvement in the region.
"It chose to believe that it was one of those
sporadic and misguided outbursts of pent-up Mate
Department energy destined to evaporate under
the heat of Arab-Israeli contrariness," he wrote.
WHAT RAFAEL had to say about the Labor-
led government could probably be said about the
reaction of the Likud-led coalition to President
Reagan's Sept. 1 Middle East peace initiative as
well. From Prime Minister Menachem Begin on
down, there is no shortage of senior Israeli of-
ficials who believe wholeheartedly that the Reagan
Plan will simply fade away as did the Rogers
Plan if Israel continues to hang tough in its
But Reagan and Secretary of Stale George
Shultz have insisted that they have absolutely no
intention of giving up, despite all the problems.
Reagan included only a few words on the Middle
East in his nearly one-hour State of the Union
address to Congress in January. But among them
was a clear reiteration of his peace initiative. "All
the people of the Middle East should know that, in
the year ahead, we will not flag in our efforts to
build upon that (Camp David) foundation to bring
them the blessings of peace," he said.
Shultz, too, has been firm in refusing to move
away from the initiative. He has made this clear
during closed-door meetings with members of
Congress, the American Jewish leadership and
others. He said as much during a recent interview
with Bernard Gwertzman, the diplomatic
correspondent of The New York Times Shuk I
said that when he had originally discussed the ?
with the President, he insisted that "you should,?!
start unless you're prepared for a long ha.
You've got to be steady, firm, patient aid
prepared to stay with it. We talked about ib
extensively with the President, and we a|
prepared to stay with it."
IN THE interview, Shultz explained hisconce|
of a proper role for the U.S. as mediator. "The
is an image in some people's mind," he said, "th
what a mediator does is pass messages back and
forth between people and be somebody who
convenes meetings. A good mediator is very activt
with all the parties to the dispute and mziA
suggestions, at times privately, at times publicly
depending upon what the mediator thinks is going I
to advance the process."
That is the thrust of the U.S. mediation rcJ
right now in trying to remove all foreign force
from Lebanon. Thus, the embattled U.S. envoi
Philip Habib has refused to simply carry messages.
Without much success so far, he has been ac-
tively involved in coming up with ideas usually
not to Israel's liking. Habib's inability to get the
job done in recent months resulted in a lead
editorial in The New York Times on Jan. 26,
calling on Reagan to appoint former Secretary ol
State Henry Kissinger to the highly visible Middle
Last slot. That editorial represented an em-1
hai rasing slap in Habib's face.

Dramatic Change in Blackmail
Jews find Reagan's Oil Policy Disappointing
The rift now developing, in
the ranks of the rulers of
Arab oil-countries a rift
caused by the diminishing im-
portance of Arab oil for the
United States and other indus-
trial lands is being closely
watched by leading Jewish or-
ganizations in this country.
. Vivid in the minds of Amer-
ican Jewry is still the attempt
of the Arab oil countries, led
by Saudi Arabia, to put over
on the American people the
nefarious "explanation" that
the 15-fold hike in the price of
their oil is a retaliation for the
support the U.S. government
is giving to Israel.
This outrageous, provoca-
tive attempt spelled great
danger lor American Jewry. It
sought to implant in the minds
of millions of American car
owners and home owners the
idea that because of American
aid to Israel they must pay an
incredibly high price lor oil. It
was intended not only as
vicious propaganda against Is-
rael but also as incitement
against Jews in the United
States interested in securing a
normal existence for the State
of Israel. Large masses of un-
employed Americans who lost
their jobs because of the slack-
ening of American industry
could have also fallen into this
Arab trap. So could many
Americans affected by the in-
THE DANGER to Ameri-
can Jewry became even greater
when the ugly "explanation"
of the Arab rulers found sup-
port among some of the
American oil companies
dealing with Arab oil. The
president of one such com-
pany went as far as dissemi-
nating the deceptive Arab
"explanation" in a circular
letter. Some attendants at
gasoline stations were indoc-
trinated to give this provoca-
tive "explanation" as an
excuse to irate customers pro-
testing the unbelievably high
hike in the cost of gas when
they filled the tanks of their
Jewish leaders were jitters.
I hey acted speedily and vigor-
ously and succeeded in nipping
the Arab eflort in the bud. Of
great help in this direction was
the common sense displayed
by many thinking Americans
who recognized the true
moii\es of the Arab rulers
the greed to become billion-
aires in a short period of time
the ambition to gain political
power in the world by using
their oil as a powerful weapon,
and the intention to utilize this
weapon as a tool against coun-
tries aiding Israel.
Addressing a gathering of
the U.S. Foreign Policy Asso-
ciation during a visit to this
country, the Saudi oil minis-
ter. Sheik Yamani, impertin-
ently declared that Saudi
Arabia was doing the United
States a "favor" by pumping
more oil from its wells to pro-
vide the much-needed oil for
America's industry and mili-
tary requirements. He tied the
continuation of this "favor"
to a request that the U.S.
should, in return, use pressure
on Israel and also provide its
most advanced weaponry to
Saudi Arabia.
THIS WAS more than 10
years ago. Today, the situa-
tion is by far not the same.
Today the countries depending
on importation of oil espe-
cially the United States do
not have to reply primarily on
Arab oil. There is strong com-
petition today in the world oil
market. Mexico, Nigeria, Bri-
tain, Norway and other oil-
producing countries are all
selling oil now at prices much
lower than the Arab countries
of the OPEC "cartel," not to
speak of the fact the progress
has been made during the last
year in developing alternatives
for oil natural gas, coal,
hydro-and-nuclear power and
solar power.
The changes that had taken
place in the world oil- and
energy markets during the last
five years have been greater
and more rapid that originally
foreseen. They greatly in-
creased energy efficiency and
strengthened the trends
toward substituting Arab oil
with other "non-convention-
al" sources of energy for oil.
They also stimulated a vast in-
crease in exploration for oil
and gas outside Arab coun-
tries. In effect, non-Arab oil
began to displace Arab oil.
. The world still needs Saudi
oil and will need it for some
time, but not to the same
extent as in the Arab black-
mail years. A point is now
being approached at which
world economy can look
forward to functioning without
Saudi oil. The revenues of
Arab oil countries totaled
about $200 billion last year;

on the energy scene.
This is especially done by

the central body coordinating
the policies of 11 most impor-
tant national Jewish bodies
and 111 local Jewish commu-
nity councils throughout the
U.S. engaged in watching ac-
tivities detrimental to Ameri-
can Jewry.
The American Jewish Com-
mittee, one of these 11 organi-
zations, maintains a special

issuing important tactical and
analytical information on
Arab oil developments, based
on studies by experts. The
studies all reveal the diminish-

NJCRAC has now called on
its national constituent
agencies to closely monitor
legislative and administrative
developments in the field of

A CONSENSUS policy of
all the Jewish groups affiliated
with the NJCRAC expresses
disagreement with some points
of President Reagan's energy
program. It finds it especially
"disturbing" that the govern-
ment has withdrawn support
lor research and development
of liquid synthetic fuels and
non-depletive energy produc-
tion. It calls lor government
programs to advance the de-
velopment of liquid synfuels
and non-depletive energy
sources. It also advocates the
development and use of
America's enormous coal
reserves as means of reducing
U.S. dependence on imported
Dissatisfied with the invoca-
tion by the Reagan Adminis-
tration of a "free market"
energy policy curtailing the
multi-iaceted government

or proposed by previous Ad-

emphasizes that the govern-
ment's energy policy must rec-
ognize that national security

Americanizing of Soviet Emigres: A View from Inside
Last Thanksgiving some
Soviet Jewish families feasted
on turkey and cranberry sauce
just as if their own ancestors
had landed with the pilgrims at
Plymouth Rock. Some adults
at the table, though, continued
their very Russian custom of
sipping straight vodka along
with the meal.
BUYING A carpet in the
Soviet Union, for instance,
may be quite a different
operation from buying a
carpet in the United Stales. In
the USSR, it's first a matter of
| finding out via one's personal
information network where
carpets are to be found.
Next it's a matter of finding
which line to stand on and
maintaining one's position in a
line there are ways of
reserving places if one waits on
a line for over 20 hours (not an
uncommon experience in the
USSR). Then one has to dis-
cover how to break through
the curtain of secrecy that is
standard operating procedure
in the Soviet Union in regard
to sought-after consumer
Does the store have the par-
ticular kind of carpet one is
seeking? If it is not on display
as is likely does the clerk
know where it can be had?
H ill the clerk make the effort
to find it? How can one enlist
the clerk as an ally in making
the purchase? Or coerce him
into helping.
THERE'S ALSO a basic
ussumpiion in Russia that
bureaucrats and clerks of all
sorts all of whom are part
of the government have all
the commodities one seeks in
their possession to give or
withhold as they wish not
only carpets, but also jobs,
apartments, access to grants,
and just about anything else
worth having. Success in
Russia is measured by how
well or aggressively one
manipulates the system to gel
what one wants or needs.
"II lien I lived in the ab-
sorption center in Israel, I was
able to interpret the behavior
oj the Soviet Jews there to the
Israelis because of my training
in cultural behavior," Dr.
Aa/c explained. "Here in
Hull mi ore, when I was a con-
sultuni to ihe pediatrics and
primary cure unit at Sinai
Hospital, I could explain this
behavior to the doctors, who
then said they could under-
stand the behavior of Soviet
Jews in dealing with the
hospital. What I was doing
was a practical application of
anthropology, which is always
concerned with cross-cultural
Having a cultural anthro-
pologist on one's staff is still
something of a luxury at most
institutions, but with the
increasingly tight job market,
and grunts for travel to distant
"untouched" lands, anthro-
pologists are, of necessity,
shifting their focus to modern
urban society.
A nthropologisls are cus-
tomarily trained in four major
areas: physical anthro-
pologists study the biology of
human development, ar-
ihueologists lake a historical
tack, linguistic anthro-
pologists study the relation-
ship between lunguage and
culture, and cultural or social
anthropologists, such as Dr.
Kutz, study human culture by
investigating everyday life,
comparing and contrasting the
mores of different societies.
DR. KA TZlectured and led
discussions in English for the
elderly Russian Jews with
interpretation provided into
Russian by Stephan German.
"The immigrants learned a
lot of English by listening to
the lectures in English and
'checking out' the accuracy of
their understanding with the
subsequent translation," she
says. The Soviets felt they
gained greater appreciation of
American culture because it
was presented to them in their
own language, but they enjoy-
ed hearing the English and felt
that it supplemented their
English-language classes.
"They are hungry for learn-
ing," Dr. Katz says, "both
about America and for
mastering the English lang-
uage. '' Some of them are in-
volved in several English
language classes each week,
and spend a considerable
amount of time studying the
language at home.
BUT WHILE the language
experience was valuable, it was
not Mrs. Katz's principal
objective. Although her stu-
dents were well educated, and
many had advanced academic
degrees, she found the extent
of their ignorance of Ameri-
can culture amazing. They
knew very little about basic
geography, government, law
or education. "And as might
be expected, their knowledge
and awareness of American
values was virtually non-
existent, "she observed. .
To immerse her two classes
of elderly Russian-born immi-
grants in the culture, values
and mores of America, Dr.
Katz would first give a lecture
on a specific subject, and then
try to stimulate questions and
discussion with the latter
component of the class session
more difficult for the partici-
pants because they were un-
accustomed to freedom of dis-
cussion or viewing the teacher
as something less than an
absolute authority figure.
Dr. Katz never whitewashed
her presentation. She invited
students to challenge her state-
ments. For instance, in a pre-
sentation on crime, a deep
concern among the Russians,
she did not shy away from
controversy. The John
Hinckley insanity decision was
heatedly discussed, as was the
entire Watergate scandal.
"WHEN A particular crime
was mentioned in a class, there
was a healed discussion about
fears of crime, gun control
laws and punishment of
criminals, "Dr. Katz reported.
"They are extremely frighten-
ed about crime."
Dr. Pearl Katz has been

'Americanize,9 yet hold on to
some of their former culture.
The near-obsession with
crime is often a way of dis-
placing vague general fears
about lhe free, alien society in
which the immigrants now
live. They may recall with
nostalgia a near-perfect Russia
in which there was "no"crime
or drugs. They may long for
the security of a system with
rules, not choices; punishment
for criminals, not leniency,
understanding or rehabili-
"Although many of their
fears about crime may be
justified by actual events,
many of their fears were also
projections of their general
anxieties, Dr. Katz said. She
observed that the ways in
which the Russians might
propose to remedy the faults
they see in A merican society in
order to achieve security
would be likely to be
anathema to American con-
cepts of freedom, such as
foregoing trials, evidence and
appeals, or allowing indis-
criminate search and seizure of
weapons in private homes and
streets, or abolishing the
insanity defense.
government, laws, individual
freedom and privacy. Dr. Katz
recognized that the Russians
habitually regarded American
authority figures whether
they were in the government,
in private or voluntary
agencies, in schools or hos-
pitals as agents to "be
feared, mistrusted and if
possible manipulated." The
Russians found it nearly im-
possible to believe that most
authorities here act according
to rules and do not make deci-
sions based on coercion,
bribes or personal influence.

in which he called the L .S. aid
program to Israel "the
material manifestation of our

S50 million increase the
Administration recommended
"for the military grant" is
motivated by our un-
derstanding over Israeli
concerns over their debt
burden, coupled ith our own
analysis of that situation and
our own budgetary con-
testimony. Veliotes stressed
that the Administration
believes that the amount
recommended for Israel is
"sufficient" particularly in an
"austerity year." He stressed
that to provide the additional
S200 million in grants would
mean taking funds "out of the
hides" of other countries that
also need U.S. aid.

"take risks for peace."
The only other opposition

came from another

France includes crimes com-
mitted on racial or religious

trees, Liebman would win,
hands down. This is a pity be-
cause the story is worth learn-
Many Jews, expelled from
Spain in 1492 and then from
Portugal in 1497, came to
Latin America. Unhappily,
the Inquisition pursued them
to the New World where num-
bers of them were tortured and
burned at the stake.
Some of them became
Marranos who secretly pre-
served their Judaism at great
risk. There is considerable
fascination in their history.
However, it is difficult to find
that fascination in Liebman's
overly-detailed recital of fine
points which perhaps a hand-
ful of scholars might possibly
want to know. Each of these
obscure scholars is known to
Liebman, and he pounds the
reader with quotations from
their unknown works. He
plays the game of scholarly
one-upmanship, disputing
some minor questions and
endorsing the author's stand
on another point.
IT IS hard to figure out
what organizing principle
guided the author in writing
this book. Chronology and
geography are confused and
confounded. An excellent
index does make it possible to
track down a particular Latin
American community. For
that purpose, the book could
serve as a limited reference.
Also, there is a chapter on
religious customs and beliefs,
which is mildly interesting.
But the intriguing story of ear-
ly Jewish experiences in Latin
America just doesn't come
through, except for isolated
It is clear that the author of
this book is an outstanding ex-
pert on Latin American his-
tory and especially on the his-
tory of Latin American Jewry.
His knowledge is exhaustive
but, unhappily, he exhausts
his readers with his erudition.
He is a specialist who knows a
great deal about a little piece
of lore, but he fails to convey
his enthusiasm for the se;ment
of knowledge which he has
mastered so well. This is a dis-
appointing result for such de-
voted effort.

The land dispute, which was
also the subject of an appeal to
the Supreme Court involves
the Arab villages of Rujeib
and Azmout. The villagers are
protesting against the civil ad-
ministration's acquisition of
Arab-owned land to build a
road to the Jewish settlement
of Eilan Moreh, near Nablus.
They argue that the road is a
prelude to the settlement's ex-
pansion by illegal means.
MEANWHILE, police are
continuing their investigation
of recent attacks on Arab
targets in the Hebron area, ap-
parently by Jewish settlers.
Three Jews have been detained
as suspects, all reportedly resi-
dents of Kiryat Arba, the reli-
gious township adjacent to
The recent spate of shoot-
ings and a bomb attack on a
Hebron mosque were believed
to be in retaliation for the
stoning of Jewish vehicles by
Arabs. The Council of Jewish
Settlements on the West Bank
threatened that if the rock
attacks did not cease, they
would take measures to stop
them. The Council did not
specify what those measures
would be but their statement
implied that Jewish settlers
would take the law into their
own hands.
A group of residents from
the Jewish township of Beit El
demonstrated outside of the
Prime Minister's Office after a
vehicle belonging to one of
them was attacked with rocks.
Arab students demonstrated
in Ramallah and Nablus,
burning tires on the roads and
throwing stones at Israeli
security forces. Those inci-
dents are believed to be linked
to the growing tension in the
Hebron area.
Gallop Poll Shows
Most Americans
Support Israel
Over Arabs
I he American public con-
tinues to support Israel more
than the Arab nations, ac-
cording to a new Gallop poll
released here by the American
Jewish Committee which com-
missioned the study.
1 lie poll was conducted by
the Gallop organization be-
tween January 21 and January
30, with a nationally represen-
tative sample of 1,515 adults
aged 18 and older. Those who
were polled were asked: "In
the Mideast situation, are your
sympathies more with Israel or
more with the Arab nations?"
that the sympathies of the
American public toward Israel
had relumed to the pre-Leba-
non crisis proportions: in
favor of Israel, 49 percent; in
favor of the Arab nations, 12
percent; 22 percent said they
favored neither Israel nor the
Arabs, while 17 percent said
they did not know nor have
the answer to the question.
The poll also revealed that
persons in higher income
brackets and formal education
are more likely to express
sympathy for Israel. The sup-

The findings of the poll
clearly indicate that Israel has
recovered from the sharp
decline it suffered in American
public support as a result of
the war in Lebanon and the
massacre in two Palestinian
refugee camps in Beirut last
September. Various polls re-
leased in September showed
that only 32 percent of the
American public supported
Israel, compared to 49 percent
in July, 1981.
Dr. Donald Feldstein, the
AJC's executive vice presi-
dent, stressed in today's press
conference the natural bond
between Americans and Israe-
lis. "Americans, like Israelis
have a variety of opinion's on
nuances like autonomy and
self-government," he stated.
"But one overwhelming truth
is still clear to them: Israel, in
the Mideast conflict, is pre-
pared to make peace and live
in peace, and the Arab states,
except Egypt, are not yet pre-
pared to do m.

Ministr) of Foreign Affairs in
Bonn. And in 1964-65, he was
attache and vice consul at the
German Consulate in Phila-
It was in Philadelphia, says
Nestroy, that he devoted al-
most all of his time to dealing
with the Jewish community,
"where we had a lot of discus-
sion about the imposition of a
statute of limitations on form-
er Nazis suspected of war
crimes."' On July 4, 1979, the
West German Parliament
voted not to set time limita-
tions on the future prosecution
of such persons.
Does Nestroy envision his
consular duties here as almost
entirely "informational"?
"Of course not. Our offices
in Atlanta and in Miami deal
on a daily basis with Germans
who have come here to live.
We attend to the needs of Ger-
man tourists in the U.S. who
have sudden need of our assis-
tance. And, in Miami especial-
ly, there is always the careful
attention we must give to
Wiedergutmachung (restitu-
tion) claims of American Jew-
ish citizens who lived through
the Nazi era in Germany."
STILL, Nestroy comes back
to his first thoughts. "I enjoy
very much meeting Amer-
icans. There are among them
the younger generation, I
mean, those who do talk about
the history of the Hitler
period. But it is in a special
way. They tend to attribute
Germany's total commitment
to peace as coming from a
"small minority.' They see in
this commitment to peace an
ulterior motive. And so 1 must
point out that peace is for
"That is why the need to ex-
change information is so im-
portant to correct these
perceptions. The problem of
the successor generations, not
only in Germany but here in
the States, is that for so many
of them things like the Berlin
Lift, the Marshall Plan,
America's determination to
help the Federal Republic es-
tablish itself as a solid democ-
racy and, above all, the
guarantee of permanent
understanding between us
all these things are dusty prin-
ciples in a dusty history
Says Nestroy: "The people
who were involved in these
great efforts have either re-
tired or are all but gone. We
have to lift them out of the
dust of history and make them
real and alive for everybody
HE ARGUES: "The past is
more important than is com-
monl> thought. E^en for the
Jewish community this is so.
Jews have succeeded in finding
wider support than they could
have hoped for before the
Hitler agony. This is no
justification of it, absolutely
not, that can never be justi-
fied. But out of that era came
Is it true that Germans are
turning away from Israel
"Absolutely not. Israel has
become a mature nation, and
it should be able to handle oc-
casional mature criticism. But
1 see no anti-Israel mood in
West Germany today not in
the same way that it may well
be apparent in other areas of
the world. Look here," he
says, "no one must be permit-
ted to believe that a word of
criticism is anti-Semitism.
AND AGAINST that you
must weigh the absolute vigor
of the German youth who go
to spend summers on the
kibbutzim in Israel every sum-
mer. They come home to us in

Germany's election campaign
has generated new heat over
allegations that Hans-Jochen
Vogel, the opposition Social
Democratic Party's (SPD)
candidate for Chancellor, who
lost his bid Sunday, was an
ardent Nazi when he was a
member of the Hitler Jugend,
the Nazi youth movement,
during World War II.
Most political observers
dismiss the charges as without
serious consequences,
although a spokesman for
Vogel promptly denied them.

political involvement of West
Germany's current leaders
during the Nazi era. Vogel,
born in 1926, was a member of
the Hitler Jugend between
1941-43, after which he served
as a soldier in the Wehrmacht.
The weekly Bild Am
Sonntag reported that another
former Hitler Jugend member,
Ernst Holler, charged at an
election campaign meeting
that Vogel would intimidate
his comrades in the youth
movement and preached to
them about loyalty to the
Holler, a veterinarian, is an
active member of the Christian
Socialist Union (CSU), the
Bavarian sister party of the
ruling Christian Democratic
Union (CDU). He made his
charges against Vogel at a
CSU parly rally. He claimed
that Vogel once had him
reduced in rank in the Hitler
Jugend and stated in writing
that he was unsuitable to
participate in building up
National Socialism.
