In announcing Senator
Metzenbaum as a featured
speaker, Erwin H. Blonder,
president of the Center's
Board of Trustees, noted that
the Senator has been foremost
in his concern for the welfare
of the aged. He has consist-
ently called on Congress to
oppose cuts in health care for
the elderly and disabled.
Recently he has introduced
legislation to assist non-profit
and government agencies in
the feeding and housing of the
poor, the elderly and the
unemployed. He has been
recognized and praised for his
courage and commitment to

committee on foreign affairs,
and Jacques Torczyner, pres-
ident of the World Union of
General Zionists.
Congressman Solarz has
been described by The
Jerusalem Post as "one of the
most committed and hard-
working friends of Israel on
Capitol Hill." In addition to
his many study missions to the
Middle East, he has served as
co-chairman of the Interna-

problems faced by Jews living
in Arab lands.
He has used his Congres-

focusing attention on the
plight of Syrian Jews, and he
has introduced legislation re-
quiring all schools to teach
youngsters about the
Holocaust. In 1979, he was
appointed a member of the
President's Commission on
the Holocaust.
Jacques Torczyner has been
a leader in the Zionist move-
ment for most of his life. Born

to 1970. He was one of the
eighteen persons who met with
David Ben Gurion on July I,
1945 to initiate the movement
which organized the suppor'
for the Haganah. As a mem-
ber of the Rifkind Committee
and the special committee of
the Jewish Agency, he helped
evaluate the future of the
Zionist movement after the
creation of the state.

Senior officers of the Israel
Defense Force who took
courses at Marine war colleges
in the U.S. are critical of the
way the Marines are taught to
adapt to combat situations,
the newspaper Maariv reports.
Maariv, the Israeli officers say
the Marine command lacked
"vision and imagination" and
was too prone to "go by the
book." That basic attitude did
not allow the Marines to adapt
quickly to specific cir-
cumstances not spelled out in
military textbooks, the IDF
officers claimed.
They suggested that the
Marines tended to rely too
heavily on massive air or
artillery support to "soften
up" the enemy, a tactic that
could not be applied to their
mission or situation in Beirut.

The Lion of Judah category
is a concept which began in
1972. The Lion of Judah pin,
an original design in 14k gold,
has become an internationally
recognized symbol of women
whose personal commitments
to the annual Federation-UJA
campaign is $5,000 or more.
This recognizable symbol of
giving is now available to
communities throughout the
United States. The Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County has joined the com-
munities of Miami, Holly-
wood, Ft. Lauderdale, and
Boca Raton in adopting this
' concept which was originated
by the Women's Division of

Vital to Hod Hasharon
Assistant News Coordinator
While in Israel to give the plenary address at the Interna-
tional Congress of Family Therapy, Dr. Florence Kaslow,
a local therapist and consultant, visited Hod Hasharon,
the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County's twinned
neighborhood northeast of Tel Aviv. "I'm very interested
in what's happening in the renewal communities. It was
arranged for me by one of the professional staff of the
Jewish Federation to meet with the psychologist and social
worker at the nursery schools in Giora, which is a
distressed neighborhood on the outskirts of Hod
Hasharon," related Dr. Kaslow in a recent interview.
In Hod Hasharon, Dr. Kaslow was able to observe the
two nursery schools both from the physical surroundings
and the psychological climate. She found one of the
schools to be bright and cheerful, well equipped and with a
happy atmosphere, whereas the other one was depressing,
deplorable and comparable to the worst inner city ghetto
nursery schools.
"It was like being in Egypt with flies in the kitchen and
children sitting on potties on the floor right next to the
kitchen," stated Dr. Kaslow. "The play areas are too small
for children to let off steam."
But Dr. Kaslow did find an encouraging sign. "They
take old car tires and paint them to keep everything bright.
They use low cost equipment to enhance and attempt to
beautify this dismal school."
According to Dr. Kaslow, the children truly need day
care. "Families have six to ten children and exist on sub-
standard incomes. The mothers are emotionally depleted.
We must help give Israeli children a good start."
Dr. Kaslow found that some children were very thin and
that the meal provided at the nursery school was their
main meal of the day. Some of the children were very timid
and others seemed happy. She saw that the staff had to as-
sume parenting as well as teaching functions.
Dr. Kaslow discovered the morale at the schools to be
very good. "There is a sense that the outside world is
making an ongoing commitment to them and thai we are
all partners in the task."
Dr. Kaslow learned about a new concept that exists in
some communities in Israel wliich she believes could be
useful in Giora.
"There is a different atmosphere among the poor
oriental Jews. They are a male dominated society where
women stay home to raise children and never go out. The
women's only opportunity for socialization with other
women takes place at the riverbanks where they do their
Other communities have set up laundry centers recogn-
izing that these are one of the few places that women can
legitimately go, Dr. Kaslow explained. The laundry centers
have a social worker as a receptionist who sets up informal
groups for women to discuss child rearing, cooking,
health, home making, etc. An attended playroom is
provided for the children. "I was so impressed with that
concept," Dr. Kaslow said.
Dr. Kaslow, who also was in Israel as a visiting professor
at Tel Aviv University, moved to the West Palm Beach
area from Philadelphia one-and-a-half years ago. She is
Director of the Florida Couples and Family Institute and
an Adjunct Professor of Medical Psychology, Department
of Psychiatry at Duke University Medical School in
Durham, N. C.
A tour of Hod Hasharon and an opportunity to meet
some of the residents can be arranged for anyone traveling
to Israel. For more information, contact the Jewish Feder-
ation office.

Hod Hasharon this summer to
see first-hand the condition of
the nursery schools in Giora
and to meet with their profes-
sional staff. Although her visit
was not official, her interest la

4 The Jewkh Floridian of Phn B^ch County / Friday, November 11,1983
After 140 Years, B'nai B'rith Is Still Serving Us
B'nai B'rith International began
celebrating its 140th anniversary year by
doing what it does best: serving the
community. The Jewish service
organization, whose half a million members
in 48 countries comprise one of the largest
organizations of its kind, was founded in
1843 by 12 emigres in New York City..
Their objective was to unite Jews "in the
work of promoting their highest interest
and Chose of humanity." Early in its
history, B'nai B'rith focused on bringing
together American Jews with disparate
Today, B'nai B'rith is still aiding people
in this objective. But their programs have
proliferated to embrace such broader
purposes as aiding disaster victims and
fighting religious and racial bigotry.
Whether a Jewish communal purpose is
to confront the Soviet government's op-
pressive policies against its Jewish
populace; assit an elderly person in in-
tegrating the golden years into life in a
B'nai B'rith International apartment
project for senior citizens; help youngsters
grow into adult Jewish communal
responsibility through the B'nai B'rith
Youth Organization; or combat bigotry
through its Anti-Defamation League
founded 70 years ago, there one can see the
guiding hand of B'nai B'rith.
So significant has B'nai B'rith been
throughout these 140 years, that
Presidents of the United States have
recognized its highest commitments to the
Jewish community and to this nation.
From Grover Cleveland and Theodore
Roosevelt to Woodrow Wilson, from
Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Harry S.
Truman to Dwight Eisenhower and John F.
Kennedy, from Lyndon Johnson and
Richard Nixon to Gerald Ford and Jimmy
Carter the presidential praise has been
glowing and unstinting.
Said President Johnson: "You have
never tired, you have never faltered, you
have never lost faith in your cause; and
your cause has given faith to your nation.
You are pro-justice and pro-freedom."
That says it all. On B'nai B'rith s 140th
anniversary, the organization may look
forward to much more to do. But what
higher praise than this can there be?
Affront to America
The Reagan Administration's decision to
spurn the medical assistance instantly
offered by Israel to victims of the terrorist
bombing in Lebanon on Oct. 23 is more
than an affront to Israel. It is an affront to
every American.
As a consequence of this shabby
decision, lives of Marines were snuffed out
who might otherwise have survived their
long and senseless trip to hospitals in
Europe, where they arrived too late for
State Department and other high
government officials unwilling to be quoted
have since frankly admitted that the
government spurned Israel's offer because
it was afraid of the Arab reaction. The Arab
reaction to what? Who was it in the first
place who killed 230 Marines in Lebanon?
Once again, President Reagan
demonstrates that neither he nor those
advising him understands Lebanon, or the
Middle East either, for that matter.
Northing he can say about the purpose of
our presence in Beirut therefore makes a
scintilla of sense.
In separating himself from Israel at the

Assistant News Coordinator
Nearly two years ago,
Michael Melamud, a recent
Russian immigrant, moved to
West Palm Beach. He needed
a place to live without cost so
that he would be able to attend
the School of Radiological
Technology at St. Mary's
Hospital. He could not
support himself fully while
going to school full-time.
Responding to a plea from
the pulpit of Rabbi Howard
Hirsch of Temple Beth El,
Mary and Floyd Bachrach
offered Melamud a place to
stay in their home. "We had a
house with five bedrooms, the
kids were gone and it hardly
seemed right not to help,"
stated Mrs. Bachrach.
Now, two years later,
Melamud has graduated from
St. Mary's and works at JFK
Hospital in the radiology
department. This reporter
spoke with him the day before
he was scheduled to take his
board examination for a
national license which will
enable him to work in major
hospitals in the United States.
It is not often that we get a
personal insight into what it
feels like to be a Jew in the
Soviet Union from a recent
emigrant who lives in this
area. Melamud's story of life
in Russia and his family's
successful attempt to leave
underscores the difficulties of
growing up Jewish in an
overtly hostile country.
Melamud was 20 years old
when he left Russia and came
to Cleveland, Ohio in 1979
with his parents and a 13-year-
old brother. They had applied
to leave Russia just one year
prior. According to Melamud,
people who have problems
getting out are politically
active and criticize the way
things are done in Russia.
My father didn't which made
things easier for us," stated
Melamud. However, they
encountered the typical first
refusal, the frustration and
anxiety dealing with the
bureaucracy and the loss of
citizenship once permission
^vas granted to emigrate. "The
process was very degrading."
They lived in a little town
outside of Kiev where his
rSSST ?flhfchr' a doc,or- "*> *" charge
of the coroner's office. His
official reason for wanting to
leave Russia was his desire to
be with his family in Israel
which was considered by the
government as a legitimate
reason. One cannot apply to
go to the U.S. directly.
However, one of the main
reasons the family wanted to
emigrate was that "Russian
people are very prejudiced
against Jews. I knew I was
Michael Melamud
Jewish," Melamud said, "but
1 was raised without any
religion, just with Russian
culture. My nationality,
nevertheless, was considered
Jewish. Even though I was
born there and spoke the
language, the people were pre-
judiced against you because
you are born Jewish."
Several incidents in his
childhood reinforced his
feelings of isolation and his
anger at being stereotyped.
"In school kids would pick on
me, even my friend, so that I
was afraid to go ic classes.
They would say to me to get
out and go to your country
Israel." When Melamud
turned 16, he began to fight
back. He started to lift weights
to build up his physical stature
and strength so that he could
slant up to anyone who spoke
ill of ihe Jews.
"When I was 17, 1 was
absolutely wild. I couldn't
stand people talking against
the Jews. Once I pushed a man
out of a bus who was bad-
mouthing the Jews and^
wouldn't stop. If you.
strong, people leave y0,
alone." Even in Russia one
can speak up for himself if it's
a personal thing, Melamud
Name calling and dero-
gatory remarks were not the
only anti-Semitism thai
Melamud encountered. If ii
were not for Melamud's coach
befriending him, he would not
have been accepted into
college. "I had good grades
but eight people applied for
every slot available My coach
made sure that I wouldn't be
rejected solel> because I was
During his college years, he
was in the top 5 percent of his
class but when it came time for
a special project which
required six months work in a
factory, his Jewish nationality
once more came to the
"I should have been sent to
the best factory in Leningrad
because of my high standing in
the class. Hut I was not
allowed to go because the
factory didn't want Jews.

significance," related
The nationally condoned
anti-Semitism finally made the
Mclamuds realize that the)
would never be at home in
Russia. They arc now com-

Melamud speaks EsjBi
with just a slight accent- I
left Cleveland because there
was a large population o
Russian immigrants and i
wanted to be able to >pe

advice ol a friend, I moved to
this area. I love it here."

Jewish Survival
As A Personal Issue

October, 1983 At a time
when assimilation, intermar-
riage, and indifference toward
religion and tradition are
running rampant across the
contemporary Jewish world,

essay contest, sponsored by

sources of coherence, and
support of Jerusalem and
Israel as a focus of modern
Jewish identity. Whatever was
their motivation, the eight
winners chosen from among
entrants representing 69 uni-
versities across the country,
wrote essays deemed
"remarkable by any academic
standards," by Professor
Henry L. Feingold, President
of the American Jewish
Historical Society and
chairman of the contest.
Mann's essay postulates
that Jewish survival is "a
personal issue." The Jewish
body, he writes, "is the sum of
all the Jewish people; Jewish
experience is the things we do,
feel, and endure as Jews." It
includes "our history, our
scriptures, our faith, our
customs, our dogma, our
land, and our relation to those
around us. Judaism depends
on the continuity of this ex-
perience and on its constancy.
In Israel, to be a Jew is to be a
person, because most persons
are Jews. In the Diaspora,
however, and especially in
societies as integrated as our
ow n, the sun ival ot the Jew ish
people depends upon the
survival of each individual
Jew. It is in the Jewish ex-
perience of the individual that
Judaism must survive."
According to Mann, it Jews
attend synagogue, it should be
because worship gives them
meaning, and not because
attendance gives them
respectability; "because the
rabbi is a wise man from
whom they can learn, and not
an authority figure from
whom they gain reprieve. If
Jews find in Judaism a context
for meaningful social in-
teraction, it should be with an
awareness of how that inter-
action brings out the godliness
in them. If they marry within
the religion, it should be not
because Judaism needs them,
but because they need
Judaism. If they raise their
children to be Jewish, it
should be clear that Judaism is
a gift they give them to enrich
their lives, not something they
impose on them to lighten
their own. If Jews support the
State of Israel, it should not be
because it just guarantees
Jewish survival, but because it
fulfills the Jewish soul. If Jews
speak of God, it should be
because they know Him or
because they wish to know
Him and not becuase He is a
character in a prayer book or
because people listen when
His name is mentioned.
Barry Mann attended
reform synagogue in West
Palm Beach until his Bar
Mitzvah and unlike the others,
had little connection with
Judaism at university. He
described himself as the
"least" Jewish of the contest
winners, speaking only about
six words of Hebrew, under-
standing only about seven.
During his third year at
Harvard, dissatisfied, he took
time off to travel in the
Mediterranean on a shoe-
string. His experience in Israel
and with Jews in countries
such as Egypt and Tunisia,
figure into his essay.

Distancing Itself
U.S. Snub of Medical Offer Angers Israelis
By JTA Services
TEL AVIV U.S. rejec-
tion of Israel's offer of its hos-
pitals to treat American serv-
icemen wounded in the Oct. 23
terrorist bomb attack in Beirut
is developing into a new source
of friction between Israel and
the Reagan Administration.
Defense Minister Moshe
Arens cited other examples of
what he said was a U.S. policy
of "distancing itself from
Israel ever since 1,200 Marines
were sent to Beirut in Septem-
ber, 1982, as part of the multi-
national peacekeeping force.
Israel has been insisting,
ever since the tragic death of
some 230 Marines and sailors
in the suicide bombing of
Marine headquarters at Beirut
airport, that the Americans
were not invited to Beirut by
Israel and were not defending
Israel. But Arens, addressing
the Commercial and Industrial
Club in Tel Aviv last Friday,
complained that Washington
had gone out of its way to
demonstrate that the U.S. was
not coordinating its strategy
with Israel.
He charged that instead of
working together with the Is-
raeli and Lebanese govern-
ments against the inroads of
Soviet-backed Syria, the U.S.
had consistently worked to
create the impression that it
was supporting the Lebanese
against Israel.
eve of the Lebanese national
reconciliation conference in
Geneva, Israel has strongly
warned against any attempt to
scuttle the May 17 Lebanon-
Israel agreement.
In statements by Defense
Minister Moshe Arens and by
Cabinet Secretary Dan Meri-
dor over the weekend, Israel
insisted that the agreement,
predicated on the withdrawal
of Syrian, Israel and PLO
troops from Lebanon,
provided the basis for security
arrangements along the border
without which Israel could not
leave Lebanon.
Meridor, speaking after
Sunday's weekly Cabinet
meeting, noted that abroga-
tion of the agreement would
be "very serious indeed" be-
cause it would set a precedent
whereby an Arab state, having
concluded an accord with
Israel, could be pressured and
threatened into revoking it by
another Arab state.
NEW YORK Lebanese
Foreign Minister Elie Salem
said Sunday that a complete
Israeli withdrawal from Leba-
non may provide the Syrian
government with a needed in-
centive for it to withdraw its
troops from Lebanon and end
what the Lebanese official
termed as Syria's "illegal" oc-
cupation of his country.
"We believe that the with-
drawal of the Israeli forces
would be a major inducement
for the Syrian forces to with-
draw from Lebanon," Salem
said in an interview via
satellite from Bern, Switzer-
land on the ABC-TV "This

We were all deeply saddened by the recent loss of Sen-
ator Henry M. Jackson. In his more than 40 years in Con-
gress, "Scoop" Jackson, as he was affectionately known,
was the epitome of a dedicated, idealistic and supremely
effective public servant. His far-reaching social and
humanitarian concerns, his devotion to the finest values of
American life, and his exemplary grasp of the most crucial
issues of our times have earned him a unique place in the
esteem of his countrymen and the respect of all nations.
We are all aware of Henry Jackson's important efforts
and valiant stand in the struggle to win freedom for Soviet
Jewry. He cared deeply about the Jewish people and the
State of Israel. He was a steadfast champion of Israel's
cause and an influential voice in her behalf. We are all
diminished by his passing.
Beach County To Pay
Senator Henry Jackson
A memorial forest in memory of Senator Jackson is
being established in Israel by his friends in the American
Jewish community; and the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County will assist in the establishment of this
memorial by funneling all gifts to the Jewish National
Fund, the agency which is coordinating this effort.
We are hopeful of achieving a goal of S3,000 to enable
us to establish a grove in the name of the Palm Beach
County Jewish community within the Senator Henry
Jackson Memorial Forest.
Your checks should be made out to the Jewish National
Fund and mailed to the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach

Israeli and American forces in
In the days preceding the
Beirut bombing, Congress had
become critical of another
aspect of the Administration's
Middle East foreign policy
a secret Administration plan
tucked away in a Defense
Appropriations Bill to arm
and train a Jordanian Rapid
Deployment Force. This ill-
advised plan, ostensibly
created to assist friendly Arab
nations in times of internal
unrest, ignores the realities of
Jordan's reluctance to co-
operate with the United States,
and the potential threat such a
force poses to Israel s security.
It is fair to asl: why the
Reagan Admin stration
consistently and re >eatedly is
ignoring the strategic value of
Israel as an ally. If olame for
this situation can be placed on
one individual the culprit is
Defense Secretary Weinber-
INSTEAD of relying on
Weinberger's affinity for
working with "moderate"
Arabs, the Administration
would do well to consider
Henry Kissinger's recent
suggestion that the Middle
East balance of power, and the
protection of U.S. interests in
the region can best be served
by closer ties between the
United States and Israel.
The tragedy of Beirut can be
a lesson well-learned that
cooperation, rather than
confrontation with Israel, is in
the best interests of the United
States. Or the Administration
can continue with its head-in-
the-sand Middle East policies.
It was also curious to note in
President Reagan's address to
the nation on events in
Grenada that U.S. Marines
had discovered a large cache
of weapons enough, as the
President said, to equip
thousands of terrorists. News
accounts showed a storeroom
full of weapons stacked to the
ceiling, with Marines ex-

Tempest in Teapot
Should Prince Ask Jews for Funds?
London Chronicle Syndicate
Should Jews as a commu-
nity contribute to the West-
minster Abbey restoration
fund? Britain's Prince Philip,
in a letter to the Chief Rabbi,
suggested that it might, and
quoted tee precedent of a
group of Jewish merchants
who, in 1245, sent money to
Henry III towards the rebuild-
ing of the Abbey.
His Royal Highness is prob-
ably not a medieval scholar
and may not have been ex-
pected to know this, but his
staff should have advised him
that the 1245 precedent was
not a particularly happy one,
for the money was not
donated, but extorted.
The Royal Exchequer was,
in fact, running a virtual pro-
tection racket and obtained
2,500 Pounds from one Jewish
family, 3.000 Pounds from
another, and a large but
unstated sum from Aaron of
York, whose father had been
martyred in the massacre of
York in 1190. And what is
worse, these exactions did not
prevent the expulsion of the
entire Jewish community in
IN THE circumstances, I
feel that the Prince used less
than his usual tact in writing
his letter at all. Nor was it
phrased with the delicacy one
might have expected. "I quite
understand," he wrote, "that

tions to their own commu-

do, but others don't, and the
Chief Rabbi can be forgiven
for the slightly tart tone of his
reply: "In principle," he
wrote, "neither Jewish indivi-
duals nor Jewish charitable
organizations normally restrict
their donations to their own
community, realizing the debt
we owe to the country, its
citizens and national institu-
There are large, prosperous
and well-established commu-
nities of Moslems, Hindus and
Sikhs in this country. Did they
receive a similar appeal from
the Prince? I suspect not,
though he would have had
strong grounds for approach-
ing at least the first-mention-
ed, not because there happen
to be a great many extremely
wealthy Arabs in this country,
but because the Moslem
community received the
magnificent Regent's Park site
for their London mosque as a
gift from the British taxpayer.
I know of no other commu-
nity, and certainly of no
Jewish institution, which has
been so favored.
IT COULD, perhaps, be
argued that Jews as an organ-
ized community have been
around for so much longer
than the Moslems, Hindus or
Sikhs, that they are so well in-
tegrated, and are regarded as
part of the fabric of old Eng-
land and, as such, could be
reasonably expected to help
maintain the fabric of one of
old England's most venerable
institutions. That, indeed, is
the most charitable construc-
tion which can be put on the
Prince's letter.
It could further be suggested
that, since England is almost a
pagan country, and since the
Abbey has been virtually de-
consecrated by the relentless
march of tourist hordes, one
.an dismiss the embarrassment
which can arise when the
adherents of one faith are
invited to contribute to the
upkeep of the institutions of
another; but do do so would,
in a sense, abet the drift
towards paganism.
One of the reasons why it is
so difficult for Jews to stay
Jewish in England is that Eng-
lishmen are ceasing, or have
ceased, to be Christian.
THERE IS really only one
reason why any non-Christian
should wish to help the
restoration appeal, and that is
the pleasure one gets from the
sight of the Abbey. I have
been there many times and, in
spite of the crush of tourists
and the baoble of voices, I
have been moved by the very
scale of the place, the gran-
deur of its monuments (especi-
ally in the Henry VII chapel),
its associations, its ghosts, its
treasures, including a pair of
magnificent farm,,. I

Iranian Brothers May Make It Here

The brothers were arrested
on January 22, 1983 for enter-
ing the U.S. with false pass-
ports, their only means of
escape from Iran. Pollock said
that as part of the agreement,
they will furnish U.S. authori-
ties, with information about
how they obtained the pass-
ports, "to the best of their
knowledge." This will be done
before they depart for Vienna.
POLLOCK said that, ac-
cording to Wilder, once the
formalities are over, the U.S.
will approve the application.
He said a government official
indicated there was no reason
why this should not be the case
and estimated that the broth-
ers' stay in Vienna will be no
longer than 3-4 weeks.
The date of their departure
for Vienna will depend on the
response of the Austrian gov-
ernment. If the Austrian au-
thorities do not signify in
writing by November 11 that
the brothers will be admitted,
Judge Glasser can order their
release from INS custody as
parolees, Pollock said.
He said the agreement was
made possible through the in-
tervention of three New York
Congressmen, Gary Acker-
man a Democrat and
Hamilton Fish and Benjamin
Gilman, both Republicans,
who discussed the case with
INS, State Department and
Justice Department officials.
The brothers must go to a for-
eign country to seek refugee
status because the law forbids
anyone under an exclusion
order from doing so within the
that Vienna was selected as the
site for the formalities because
the Rav Tov organization
which is sponsoring the Sedgh
brothers has facilities there.
He said Rav Tov is an organi-
zation of Satmar hasidim
which helps Jews escape from
Iran, the Soviet Union and
countries of distress in eastern
Meanwhile, according to
Pollock, Ackerman has called
for a Congressional hearing to
investigate the INS action in
this and similar cases. The
Sedgh brothers were placed on
a flight to Spain on October 20
even though the INS had been
informed by the Spanish au-
thorities that they would not
be admitted.
They were flown back to
New York on October 21, only
to be placed on another flight
to Spain the next day. They
were returned to New York on
October 23 after being flown
across the Atlantic four times
and were about to be placed
on yet another flight to Spain
when Judge Glasser's restrain-
ing order halted their odyssey.
The INS had selected Spain
because it was their last depar-
ture point before the brothers
reached the U.S. 10 months
The Brothers were taken
from Kennedy Airport last
Sunday to the INS detention
center at the old Brooklyn
Navy yard from where they
were inexplicably transferred
to the Manhattan Correctional
Center, a federal jail. Accord-
ing to Pollock they have since
then been transferred back to
the INS detention center.
