Meanwhile, U.S. special

his consultations at the State

spokesman John Hughes re-

Responding to speculation
that Habib may be leaving his

President has total confi-

Habib "has done long and en-
during work, and I assume
.that at some stage he will want
to go back to California, but
he has also made it clear that
he remains at the disposal of
the President."
Hughes stressed that "it is
baseless to suggest that there
are any pressures on him
(Habib) to stand down." He
also said the role of special en-
voy Morris Draper and his
future travel plans arc also
being discussed.
there were no plans for Secre-
tary of State George Shultz to
visit Damascus or the Middle
East in general when he
returned from his visit to the
Far East June 24-July 6. But
Hughes added, "Never rule
anything out."
He reiterated the Adminis-
tration's position on the pos-
sible redeployment on Israeli
troops in Lebanon. "We are in
favor of the complete and
total withdrawal of all foreign
forces from Lebanon! What
contributes to that is^phat we
are pursuing," Hughes said.

"The purpose of a take-off

Havurah Fosters Jewish

his Havurah movement is
and well in this county's
Item communities. The
Havurah of the Palm
fhes was founded one year
i August by Bob Schimek
Wellington who was in-
to form this fellowship
seeing one in action in
tfornia. He wrote to his ac-
Sntances last spring:
kny of us are seeking a
fine fellowship and joy
j others, the excitement of
lunter with our Creator,
Ithe discovery of our Jew-
Iroots," he wrote. "One
ler to our quest may be
id in a new form of the
nded Jewish family, the
response to his letter
so positive that now 70
ile between the ages of 30
to 70 comprise the First
Havurah of the Palm Beaches.
They get together every six
weeks at different members
homes to socialize and explore
their Jewish identity through
lectures by members and
guests, films, and other cele-
brations of Jewish life.
The Havurah is comprised
of individuals who come from
varied religious backgrounds.
Some are affiliated with a
temple while others are not.
Although this Havurah is
not associated with a temple,
rabbis from area temples are
being invited to address the
group. On August 6, Rabbi
Steven Westman of Temple
Beth Torah and Rabbi Nathan
Zelizer of Temple Beth Zion
will speak about the relevance
of the Torah in the 20th cen-
According to Bob Schimek,
the word that best describes
this havurah is "unstruc-
tured." There are no per-
manent officers but leadership
consists of a rotating steering
committee made up of four
couples who serve for a total
of four meetings. "Everyone
has a chance to plan and share
in the responsibility for
making the havurah run
smoothly. There are no dues
and the only cost to the mem-
ber is a minimal charge to
cover the expenses of
mailing," stated Schimek.
Even though the group has
grown larger and faster than
expected, there are no plans to
limit its size. However, six
sub-groups have been formed
according to the individual in-
terests of the havurim. These
are Jewish History, Jewish
Languages, Bible Study, Jew-
ish Family Life, Jewish Cul-
ture, and Worship.
Bill Forbes, at whose home
the June meeting was held,
feels that the Havurah "has
made a very good impression
on me. It's way beyond be-
longing to a temple."
Do the area temples feel
challenged by this separate
havurah in their midst? Not
according to Rabbi Steven
Westman. "There is no reason
why a future havurah from
our temple and the havurah
already established cannot
operate side-by-side. We don't
view it as competition."

Beaches, contact Syndee or

the basic tenets of Judaism.
Conversion for the sake of
marriage only is not accepted.
The Conservative move-
ment looks to the Rabbinical
Assembly of America, the
organization of Conservative
rabbis, as its standard of prac-
tice. Rabbi William Marder of
Temple Beth David was asked
to relate the Conservative
position on intermarriage. He
said, "Intermarriage is viewed
as a violation of tradition and
a weakening of the Jewish
fabric. If a mixed religion
couple is determined to marry,
the Conservative movement
encourages conversion. We
hope that during the study of
Judaism, the non-Jewish
spouse will become com-
Furthermore, Rabbi Marder
stated that if there is an inter-
marriage without conversion,
the synagogue wants the non-
Jewish spouse to feel welcome
to attend services and pro-
grams and encourages this.
"We don't read the Jew who
has intermarried out of the
While the Conservative and
Orthodox movements take a
unified stand on intermarriage
within their own ranks, the
Reform movement does not.
In 1973, at a closed session in
Atlanta, the Central Con-
ference of American Rabbis
(the organization of Reform
rabbis) reaffirmed its position
against rabbis performing
intermarriage between Jews
and non-converted Gentiles.
However, the CCAR's recom-
mendations exist only to sup-
port its members who do not
perform intermarriages.
Members enjoy the right to
perform intermarriages with-
out any threat of expulsion or
political harrassment.
The Reform rabbis of this
community were queried
about their individual atti-
tudes on performing a mar-
riage between a Jew and a
non-Jew. Both Rabbi Joel
Levine of Temple Judea and
Rabbi Steven Westman of
Temple Beth Torah support
the CCAR position. "I believe
that a single religion is a
foundation for a meaningful
family life in an age of the
fragmented family," stated
Rabbi Levine. Both he and
Rabbi Westman explore the
possibility of conversion first.
However, if there is no chance
of this, they will refer the
couple to a colleague who will
perform an intermarriage
ceremony without the benefit
of conversion on behalf of the
non-Jewish spouse.
"At a later time," stated
Rabbi Westman, "without the
pressure of the wedding date,
that person may convert and
the couple can remarry Jew-
Another Reform rabbi in
this community, Rabbi
Howard Shapiro of Temple
Israel, also views intermar-
riage as a threat to the Jewish
future but tries to offer each
individual couple who comes
to him and who are members
of his temple an approach to
resolve their individual
dilemmas. Rabbi Shapiro
affirms, "We need to be wel-
coming and accepting to those
who choose Judaism in their
adult lives."
All segments of the Jewish
community continue to seek
answersto the problems inter-
marriage presents. However,
Rabbi Westman summed it up
when he said, "There is no
perfect insurance that a Jewish
person will marry within the
faith. We hope education and
intensive Jewish living will
help but there are no quick
The First Havurah of the Palm Beaches was formed in August
1982 with mainly residents of the Western communities par-
ticipating. The founding members of the fellowship are

Members of the First Havurah of the Palm Beaches met recently
at the home of Ida and William Forbes in Wellington, to view a
short film on Technion and to hear Robert Schachter, director
of the Palm Beach Region of the American Technion Society
relate the work of Technion in Israel. A film entitled "Israel
A Search for Faith" narrated by James Michner was also
shown. Holding an informal discussion afterwards are Elaine

In U.S.: Greed, Anger
By contrast, Israeli doctors attached to
the national service start out at somewhere
in the neighborhood of a $450 per month
salary for which they work a 45-hour week.
Should the post-strike negotiations go the
doctors' way, this could be changed to a
salary of some $600 a month, with their
workload reduced to 35 or 36 hours per
week hardly a shadow of American
medical income.
Israeli physicians can thus hardly be
accused of greed by contrast, and
Americans, when they need medical at-
tention, may covet that fact. But the
likelihood is that they would not covet a
national health service, and they not only
have Israel's to guide them in their con-
cern, but national health services in Great
Britain and elsewhere which amount to
much the same thing.
American doctors should find a lesson in
this somewhere, if they do not want to cook
the goose that has yielded them so many
golden eggs all of these years. Already,
indeed, the federal government has in-
terceded in some branches of American
medicine, notably in pathology, to restrict
the extraordinarily high fees pathologists
have been demanding and receiving for
their services. This may well be the
beginning of the end federal changes
mandated in other branches of medicine as
well a medical alternative the average
U.S. citizen may be just as unhappy with
as the U.S. physician would be.
American physicians want to retain their
status as private contractors, but let them
understand it is also true that American
citizens in need of medical attention also
prefer the right to choose their own
physician and their own range of medical
attention. The problem is only so long as
they can afford it. Once angers rise over
greed and indifference to patient needs,
what is already a fact in American
pathology may well be putting us on the
road to what occurred during the medical
upheaval in Israel these past four months
Random Thoughts
How many of you kiddos remember the
Second Avenue Yiddish Art Theater on New
York's lower east side? Well, I do. At the risk
of betraying my age, I recall being taken
there as a child and what a thrilling ex-
perience it was.
Watching the audience before the curtain
rose was a rare treat. Mothers often brought
infants, and a crying spell was occasionally
eased by actual breast feeding. This might
occur before, during, or after a performance,
and it was such a common sight that no one
gave a second glance.
The expensive front seats were usually
occupied by richies, businessmen, and-or
wives who traveled down from the Bronx or
Brooklyn for cultural stimulation. They were
classy folks in stylish clothing who knew that
all eyes were upon them. People watching
was one of the highlights of the day and you
stared, rubbernecked, and commented
shamelessly. This fun time almost equalled
the excitement of the play.
Yiddish musicals were so popular that
unsolicited, the viewers joined in to sing with
the performers. Hand clapping and foot
stomping always accompanied a particularly
popular song. Audience participation was
encouraged at all times.
But the dramas were something very
special. The players toyed with your emotion
and in those days before the advent of
kleenex, it was not unusual to cry your way
through two handkerchiefs. The play's
climax often featured the stage death of one
of the cast. To be absolutely sure they drew
every last tear from the onlookers, a coffin
was brought to center stage front. It was sad
and awful and terrible. You cried real tears
and loved every minute of it.
Comedies, as a rule, were based on
mistaken identities or the boy-meets-girl-boy-
loses-girl theme. They were simple, easy to
follow, and did not tax anyone's mental

Open Gate For Jews, Andropov Is Urged

Yuri Andropov to open the

Soviet Jews no longer wish to

In a brief speech on the

"The Soviet Union has now
concocted a phony front

goal of disgracefully falsifying

press conference with Reps

"outright lies."
He said the comments made
a ''mckery of the hardships
and suffering experienced by
thousands upon thousands of
So\iet Jews who have made
known their desire to leave."
"I saw with my own eyes the
harassment, indignities and
economic penalties suffered by
people whose only crime was a
desire to leave the land of their
oppressors," said Porter, who
met with 40 family members
of Soviet refuseniks when he
visited the Soviet Union last
Gilman, who is a member of
the Congressional Rights Cau-

Gilman spoke of his investiga-

with U.S. mail addressed to
Soviet citizens.
"We have now received a

B'nai B'rith Women
Ideals Into Action
When a handful of Jewish
women in San Francisco met
"to promote sociability for
B'nai B'rith members and
their families," no one
imagined that they were
sowing the seeds for an inter-
national women's service
organization devoted to the
ideals and principles of Jewish
womanhood. But that small
meeting, on August 18, 1897,
marked the first step toward
establishing B'nai B'rith Wo-
men, a group which today has
over 150,000 members world-
Twelve years later, a tiny
two-paragraph story' appeared
in the B'nai B'rith News. It
reported that B'nai B'rith
Columbia Lodge No. 127 in
San Francisco had for the first
time in its 66-year history
"invited" women to attend a
regular meeting on March 9,
Thirty-four of the ives,
mothers, sisters and daughters
of Lodge members attended.
The invitation" resulted in
the first official meeting of the
first chapter of B'nai B'rith
Women. They organized
themselves as the Ladies
Auxiliary of the Columbia
Lodge, now known as San

from Chicago to the new B'nai

ton, and the official name of
the organisation became B'nai
B'rith Women.
Throughout the years. BBW
maintained a deep commit-
ment to Jewish youth, provi-
ding steadily increasing sup-
port to the B'nai B'rith Youth
Organization and the Hiilef
Foundations. BBW has also
fought anti-Semitism and
bigotry1, and continues to do
so, through its support of the
Anti-Defamation League.
BBW works for Israel, for the
local communities and for
women's issues.
The Palm Beach County
Chapter of B'nai B'rith
Women was formed prior to
World War II and was the
only chapter locally until the
late 1970's. At that time, the
group was divided into three
chapters. BBW has now grown
to 12 chapters and one unit
(men and women) with a total
membership of 4,000 women.
Locally, under the auspices
of B'nai B'rith Women,
members work in hospitals,
tutor in schools, make items
for geriatric homes, volunteer
at the Shelter for Battered
Women and in the Head Start
Program. This fall. BBW is
organizing and sponsoring a
Healthy Baby Fair and Baby
Olympics with the March of
Dimes and the National Coun-
cil of Catholic Women. All
this is in addition to the
ongoing programs and
projects of BBW.
According to Marsha
Wahrman, director of the
BBW South Central Region,
Florida is the fastest growing
region in the country. "We
now have 19,000 members

While you're getting settled comfortably in your
hotel the people on the charter are still squirming in
their seats at 35,000 feet
No wonder. They had to make a stopover some-
where in Europe. And, in some cases, they even had to
change planes and re-check their baggage.
At El Al we don't believe in playing musical planes.
So we provide a daily (except the SaBbath) non-stop
wide body flight from New York to Israel. We're the
only airline that does.
In fact once you're on one of our roomy 747s,
you won't want to get oft You'll enjoy first-run movies.
Stereo entertainment And gourmet kosher meals,
including our famous bagels and lox breakfast What's
the food and service like on a charter? Don't ask.
El Al also offers a lot of other advantages a charter
doesn't Like the lowest scheduled fares to Israel. The
only non-stop night flight from Tel-Aviv to New York.
Early check-in privileges in Tel-A/iv, Jerusalem and
Haifa on the day before your departure. And an
unparalleled concern for safety and security.
Just as important El Al is the airline of Israel. So we
know Israel best and can help you with all the arrange-
ments for your trip.
Ah, the charter finally has landed. Unfortunately,
they still have to shlepp to their hotel as you relax and
enjoy a leisurely dinner.
Now that the advantages of flying El Al are ob-
vious, call your travel agent or us for more information
or reservations at our toll free number 800-223-6700.

the failings of a bankrupt
regime. The Anti-Zionist
Committee has served to
intensify the atmosphere of
fear among the Soviet Jewish
In response to the Soviet's
international anti-Semitic
propaganda effort, the UCSJ
held a press conference on
June 9 in conjunction with
Representatives Tom Lantos
(D-CA) and John Edward
Porter (R-IL), co-chairmen of
the Congressional Human
Right Caucus.
UCSJ Executive Director
Paul Meek denounced the
Anti-Zionist Committee's
press conference as "a collec-
tion of false statements,
blatant lies, and vicious anti-
Semitic propaganda.".
Responding to the Commit-
tee's contention that Jews col-
laborated with the Nazis,
Meek said, "It is absurd that
the Soviet government, which
was allied with Nazi Germany
from 1939-1941, would at-
tempt to rewrite history in
such a ludicrous manner.
While Soviet officials claim
there is no discrimination
against Jews, Soviet Jews are
forbidden to practice their re-
ligion, to speak or learn
Hebrew, and are often ar-
rested simply for showing in-
terest in emigrating to Israel."
Lantos challenged Soviet
leader Yuri Andropov at the
press conference: "I tell Yuri
Anropov to open the gates and
let the world see whether
emigration from the Soviet
Union has stopped because the
Russian government has
stopped it or because Soviet
Jews no longer wish to leave
Andropov's empire."
Porter said the Committee's
comments made a "mockery
of the hardships and suffering
experienced by thousands
upon thousands of Soviet Jews
who have made known their
desire to leave."
Finally, the UCSJ offered to
pay the expenses of any mem-
ber of the Soviet Anti-Zionist
Committee or any other Soviet
official who would visit Israel
and other Western countries to
meet with families whose rela-
tives are denied permission to
Separated families in the
Soviet Union and the West
have protested the Commit-
tee's claims that family reuni-
fication has been completed by
bearing personal testimony to
the thousands of miles that
separate husbands from wives,
and parents from children and

Dear Jean:
On behalf of the Second
Tuesday Activity Club, I want
to thank you for a lovely af-
ternoon that was spent at the
Third Annual Volunteer
Luncheon, held at Kristine's
on Friday, May 20.
The food was excellent, the
service unsurpassable, the at-
mosphere most pleasant. The
faces on all the Volunteers
showed much enthusiasm and
festive attitudes. The icing on
the cake was the entertainment
by the "Harmoneers of
Covered Bridge."
Again my appreciation for
all the effort and work this
function entailed and hope
that there will be many more
such good times.

filled with a happy excitement.
I was enjoying my neighbors
and peers at my luncheon table
as well as the delicious lunch
food. Prior to the lunch there
is a program made of creative
activity for about one half
hour before we are served. To-
day the activity was a sing-a-
long where joy was on their
smiling faces. We sangalong
with Shalom, Pennies from
Heaven and a few more songs.
We were served and the room
became quiet. All week lunch
time is a surprise.
Thank you for these happy
lunchtime hours.

NEW YORK A federal
judge, in what was described
as the first case of its kind, has
ordered the federal Bureau of
Prisons to provide a Jewish in-
mate with food certified by a
Hasidic rabbinic agency,
Howard Zuckerman, presi-
dent of the National Jewish
Commission on Law and Pub-
lic Affairs, reported.
The ruling by Judge John
Larkins, Jr. of the federal dis-
trict court for the eastern dis-
trict of North Carolina was
handed down in Trenton,
N.C. Judge Larkins ruled that
the prisoner, whose name was
withheld and who is believed
to be from Montreal, was en-
titled to provisions certified as
kosher by the Central Rabbin-
ical Congress (CRC), of the
U.S.A. and Canada, the um-
brella agency for all Satmar
Hasidic groups. The CRC has
an extensive kosher product
certification program.
The ruling was in response
to a suit filed on behalf of the
inmate at the federal Correc-
tional Institution at Butner,
N.C, which challenged the
bureau's policy of providing
only kosher products certified
by the Kashruth Division of
the Union of Orthodox Jewish
Congregations of America,

tee shortly after meeting with
the U.S. special envoy Philip
Habib, who arrived here.
Some observers interpreted
Habib's visit at this time as a
U.S. effort to head off any Is-
raeli decision on redeployment
in Lebanon until after Begin's
scheduled meeting with Presi-
dent Reagan in Washington at
the end of July. The U.S. fears

tty in Russia, 1825-1855.
Michael Stanislawski.
Liladelphia: Jewish Publi-
lion Society, 1983. 246 Pp.,
twish Floridian Book Editor
[Since so many Jews trace
eir ancestry to Russia, and
bee so many of us are in-
fested in our "roots," this
Bk is a welcome contri-
tion to our understanding,
successfully fills in the blank
ges of history for an era that
unfamiliar to most of us.
/e know in general that
it as Jews do not fare well in
: Soviet Union today, so did
fcy suffer under the tsars.
|is book deals with a par-
jlar tsar, Nicholas I, who
ne to power in 1825 and
io ruled until his death in
55, an event which was
eted with great relief by the
vs of Russia.
The story of how Jews were
pressed and persecuted
ring the thirty years of
cholas I's reign is the
fleet of Stanislawski's
ok. He is well-qualified to
the story, having done
extensive research at Harvard,
Hebrew University and the
YIVO Institute in New York.
With the publication of this,
his first book, Stanislawski, a
young history professor at
Columbia University, has
clearly established himself as
an expert on the history of
East European Jewry.
THE TALE begins with an
account of how Nicholas I
changed the draft policy for
Jews. Prior to 1825, Jews were
generally excused from
military service, although
many had to pay an exemption
tax. Nicholas I decided to
draft Jews, motivated in part
by the determination to
convert them to Christianity.
In this, he was moderately
successful. Psychological
pressures and torture were
used to compel conversion,
particularly among draftees

Nicholas I also attempted to
accomplish his aim of convert-
ing Jews by taking control of
the educational system. Under
the guise of friendliness to the
Enlightenment, then
sweeping through Western
Europe, the Russian govern-

education. For this purpose,
they made use of Max Lilien-
thal, a young German rabbi
who was a product of
Enlightenment training.
HE MET with considerable
resistance from the tradi-
tionalists. After a few years,
his mission a failure, he left
Russia and moved to the Unit-
ed States, where he became an
important Reform leader.

Couple Ends Childless
Streak With Quintuplets
A Jew sh couple, Pamela
and Darin Pisner, of OIney,
Maryland, who were childless
after eight years of marriage,
have become parents of
quintuplets at George
Washington University Hospi-
tal here.
The four boys and one girl
were delivered eight weeks
early by caesarean section be-
tween 4:27 and 4:29 a.m. by a
medical team of 32 after the
mother went into premature
labor. The babies ranged in
size from 3 pounds, 4 ounces
for the first born boy to 2
pounds, 6 ounces for the girl,
born third. The babies and
their mother were reported in
good condition by a hospital
Mrs. Pisner, 28, is a
secretary .n the office of the
commissioner of the U.S.
Food and Drug Adminis-
tration. Mr. Pisner is a
management consultant who is
now unemployed.
Mrs. Pisner knew that she
was expecting quintuplets and
had been hospitalized since
May 17, according to Dr.
Allan Weingold, chairman of
the hospital's department of
obstetrics and gynecology.
The 32-person medical team
that assisted in the births had
monitored and supervised the
prenatal progress of the
quintuplets since January.
Weingold revealed in a press
conference that there "may
have been" a sixth fetus
present in the womb during
Pisner's pregnancy that did
not survive. Laboratory tests
are being conducted to deter-
mine that question. Pisner had
been treated with Pergonal, a

fertility drug which frequently
triggers multiple births.
"This is one of the side
effects," Weingold said of
Pergonal. He said that quitu-
plets have occurred only once
in every 20 to 30 million births
with only one case in the Unit-
ed States every 10 to 15 years.
A spokeswoman at the hos-
pital could not confirm that
this was the only case of
Jewish quntiplets.
Mr. Pisner, 29, who was
present at the birth, thanked
the hospital's medical staff for
"making this miracle possible.
Our lives have been enriched
beyond measure." In a state-
ment released by the hospital,
Pisner said: "For the next few
days we want to get to meet
our new family members and
give Pam a chance to recover
from her surgery.
The Pisner quituplets
continued to be in "stable
condition" according to a
report issued by the hospital.
"Some are experiencing some
respiratory problems, but
physicians say this degree of
illness is common in
premature infants. Mrs. Pis-
ner continues to be in satis-
factory and stable condition."
The parents announced the
names of their new family in
the order of their birth: Devin
Matthew, 3.4'/4 lbs.; Ian
Scott, 3 lbs.; Shira Lee, 2.6
lbs; Michael Evan, 2.13'/i lbs;
Elliott Richard, 2.9 lbs. The
Pisners have been married

Cantor Kessler Engaged
For High Holidays
Temple B'nai Jacob has en-
gaged the services of Cantor
Gary Kessler of Youngstown,
Ohio for the High Holidays
and Succoth. The temple
hosted him for a Shabbat
week-end recently. "He im-
pressed everyone with his
beautiful, soft and melodious
voice and his way of interpret-
ing our liturgy," stated Jacob
Frant, president of the temple.
Cantor Kessler received his
cantorial training in Israel.

day services are now available

Rabbi Dr. Morris Silber-
man, spiritual leader of the
congregation, will conduct the
services. "His meaningful and
inspirational sermons will
assure our worshippers enjoy-
able and dignified services,"
concluded Frant.
"Opens Its Doors"
"The long sought-for goal
has been realized; the dream is
a reality." With these words
by President Jacob Frant,
Temple B'aai Jacob began its'
celebration of the Opening of
the Sacred Doors recently.
Nearly SCO members and
friends witnessed the various
participants in the program
dedicate the new temple
building. Participants in-
cluded Master-of-Ceremonies

Morris Silberman, spiritual
leader of Temple B'nai Jacob;
Cantor Gary Kessler; Presi-
dent Jacob Frant; and Martin
Kroshinsky and the choir ac-
companied on the piano by Ir-
ving Blum.
The American flag was pre-
sented to the congregation by
the Jewish War Veterans and
an Israeli flag procession was
held. After Rabbi Silberman
delivered the invocation,
Jacob Frant related the events
that led to this occasion.
The entire assemblage rose
upon the opening of the Ark
and removal of the Torahs for
the procession. This was ac-
companied by Cantor Kes-
sler's chanting of the tradi-
tional melodies.
The Mezuzahs were affixed
with appropriate prayers fol-
lowed by illumination of the
Eternal Light over the Ark.
