COUNCIL OF
Herzog in Warning

Might Is Growing
i
rtt
By YITZHAK RABI
NEW YORK (JTA) -
President Chaim Herzog
of Israel, has warned the
growing military power of
Syria creates "a very danger-
ous situation." He said that
the Soviet military build-up of
Syria poses a threat not only to
Israel and Lebanon but to Jor-
dan as well.
Addressing the Conference
of Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations at a
meeting at the Regency Hotel
here, Herzog, on a 10-day visit
to the U.S., said that as a
result of the massive arms sup-
ply to Syria in the last year

responsibilities," he observed.
And within the United States,
"we continue to be concerned
that our government involve-
ment with the human condi-
tion is diminished."
Focusing on the American
scene, Citrin dealt with the
problem that he said has
become one of "increasing
concern" over the last 20
years: "the mobility of Jewish
America." He pointed out
that just as North America is
on the move, so is Jewish
America, "even more so.
Significant portions of our
people will not reside as adults
in communities where they
were born. In fact, in the quest
for livelihood, professional
growth, career or personal
achievement, many will have
moved once, twice, three times
and even more."
Continuing with this theme,
Citrin noted that "mobility

price is paid in rootlessness
and defection. I am talking

HERZOG ALSO said that
there is in Syria "the only So-
viet fighting unit outside the
Soviet bloc" and the Syrians
are equipped with the sophisti-
cated Soviet made SAM-5
missiles.
Regarding the downfall of
Yasir Arafat, leader of the
Palestine Liberahion Organi-
zation, Herzog said he was
asked by some people if he is
not sad to see this "moderate"
leader disappear. "No. I am
not sorry to see Arafat go,"
the President said, noting that
Arafat was a "murderer" who
sought the destruction of Isra-
el.
He added that it is hoped
that the Palestinian people will
"wake up" to the new realities
in the Mideast and will open a
dialogue with Israel.
HERZOG WAS guest of
honor at a reception given by
Naphtali Lavie, Israel's
Consul General in New York,
last night. The reception, at
Lavie's residence, was
attended by diplomats, Jewish
leaders and representatives of
the media.
After addressing the Presi-
dents Conference, Herzog
flew to Atlanta where he spoke
before the 52nd General As-
sembly of the Council of Jew-
ish Federations.
What Can U.S. Do?
Israel's Economic Crisis Staggering
the
By London Chronicle
Syndicate
WASHINGTON What
exactly can the United States
do to help Israel help herself
get out of the current
economic difficulties? There
are some very specific steps
which the Reagan Administra-
tion might accept beyond
the appropriation of addition-
al economic and military
grants.
Israeli officials, over the
past two years, have been
pushing the concept of a free
trade area between the United
States and Israel. That would
remove all trade barriers be-
tween the two countries. Israe-
li officials are confident that
such a step would help to
promote Israeli exports to the
United States. That, in turn,
would go a long way in nar-
negative trade
'srael has with
rowing
balance
America
In l9o^, tor example, the
United States exported some
$2.3 billion worth of products
to Israel. Trade in the opposite
direction came to $1.2 billion.
For the first seven months of
this year, Israeli exports to the
U.S. totaled some $768 million
as opposed to $1.1 billion in
U.S. exports to Israel.
BUT THE concept of a
U.S.-Israeli free trade area is
still problematic because it
would be a "first" for the
United States. Over the years,
the thrust of U.S. trade policy
has been to develop "most
favored nation" trade agree-
ment with various countries.
That means that the U.S.
treats these MFN countries
equally as far as customs,
duties and tariffs are
concerned.
But a free trade area between

the U.S. and Israel would
ele%ate Israel into an e\en
more favored category. That,
in turn, would put pressure on
the U.S. to extend similar
treatment to other countries,
as well.
In the Reagan Administra-
tion, there is some support for
moving in that direction on a
worldwide basis, given the
basic "free trade'* orientation
of most senior policymakers.
"They are free traders." said
Dan Halperin, the Israeli Em-
bassy's dynamic Economic
Minister.
But in the real world of
Washington politics, he recall-
ed, things are never all that
simple. Remember, these talks
with Israel already have been
underway for over two years
long before former Finance
Minister Yoram Aridor made
his ill-fated proposal for the
"dotlarization" of the Israeli
economy.
IN SHORT, there are all
sorts of domestic American
industries which are strongly
resisting any such opening of
the U.S. market to foreign
competition whether it be
from Israel, Japan or any-
where else. In the process, they
are raising the spectre of even
more serious American unem-
ployment. Their lobbying has
been intense.
On the opposite side are the
free traders who recognize that
American consumers will
benefit from lower cost im-
ported goods if they are at
the same or even of higher
quality than their American
made competition.
In the U.S. defense indus-
try, the competition has been
very keen. Most U.S. firms are
determined to prevent any
serious foreign inroads in the
lucrative market.
Israel, like other Western
allies, including Britain,
France. West Germany and
Italy, has been very actively
seeking to obtain some of
those contracts. There have
been some successes, but
progress has been much slower
than most Israeli officials
would have liked.
AS AN immediate out-
growth of the Israeli-Egyptian
Peace Treaty, then Defense
Minister Ezcr Weizman and
Defense Secretary Harold
Brown signed a March, 1979
Memorandum of Agreement
designed to make Israel's entry
into the U.S. defense market
somewhat easier. Israel had
sought the same access
afforded to other Western
allies. The Pentagon, as a
result of that agreement, was
finally authorized to make
purchases from Israeli defense
contractors.
But there have been many
snags along the way. What
Halperin and other senior Is-
raeli officials would very much
like to see happen now is a
faster pace in concluding deals
involving Israeli defense com-
panies, especially in areas of
high technology where Israel
has achieved some dramatic
openings through its own
combat experience.
The Israeli electronics com-
pany, Tadiran. for example,
recently won a $40 million
contract with the U.S. military
for the sale of advanced radio
and communications equip-
ment. In the process, it beat
the price of E-Systems of
Texas by some 20 per cent.
What exactly did that mean?
With the exception of E-
Systems, everyone won. Tadi-
ran obtained the contract; for
Israel, that represented a size-
able inflow of foreign curren-
cy. For the U.S. Army, there
was a lower price for a similar
quality product; that, in turn,
means a saving to American
taxpayers.
There is also another impor-
tant benefit for both Israel and
America from these direct
sales. They make Israel less
dependent on U.S. foreign
aid. For every dollar that Isra-
el can earn through sales in the
U.S. there is less need for
direct cash assistance through

rootedness, in a Jewish life-
style and at-homeness, which
we tend to take for granted."
He warned that unless Jews
on the move are sought out,
welcomed and made to feel
comfortable and can have
ready access to Jewish life in
their new communities, "they
will be prone to drop out." To
avoid this, Citrin said the
Federations must convey to
Jews on the move that "the
Jewish community cares about
them and their well-being and
offers them access to Jewish
institutional life, to the
synagogue, to the Jewish
school, to the Jewish com-
munity centers" and to all
other available services.
Myron J. Nick man, general
campaign chairman of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, presented a
paper at one of the workshops
entitled "Jews on the Move."
The program culminated
with a major address by
Secretary of State George
Shultz. He assured the
Conference members that the
Reagan administration is
dedicated to securing peace
between Israel and its Arab
neighbors.

Job Skills for Women Needed
By MARILYN GRANT,
Project Renewal Coordinator in Hod Hasharon
The need for vocational awareness and readiness
training for women is very evident the more one delves into
the problems confronting our Project Renewal neighbor-
hoods of Gil Amal and Giora.
Most of the younger women are busy having and raising
children, and the older women have no seemingly market-
able skills and no educational base on which to build.
How, then, would vocational awareness help?
First, we must profile the population in our neighbor-
hoods to which we should address this problem. Most,
over 90 percent, are either natives of neighboring Arab
countries or are first generation Sabras of immigrant
families from these countries. The tradition from which
they come looks with favor on women remaining in the
home, except for those "acceptable" female occupations
such as social work, teaching and nursing on the one hand.
On the other end of the educational scale, day housework
is also acceptable.
Since most of the population in our neighborhoods
possess eight grades of learning or less, the conclusions are
clear. The need for supplementary family income is also a
"given" in these neighborhoods, as most of the heads of
families are blue collar workers, or low level service
employees, and the average family size is large.
The problem must be approached from several sides.
The first is to work with the women in awareness groups to
help them accept the fact that they have the inner resources
for self-growth and realization. This must be done while,
at the same time, maintaining the positive traditional
values that prevail in their homes. We must help them,
then, to transfer this realization to their husbands and
families, not an easy task.
Concurrently, we must develop training programs in
occupational areas which will meet the goals of these
women and be viable in our marketplace at the same time.
Women who say to us, "we have no skills at all" don't
think of the commercial value of those attributes which
they perform as second nature in their daily lives. We
should seek to translate these skills practiced in their

Allen Teboul.
The students were divided
into four teams representing

soccer. The final marathon
run pitted four participants
from each team against each

Assad Must Meet Rumsfeld
Syria's President Hafez Assad has had
an appendectomy, says one report. Assad
has had a heart attack, says a second
report. But one fact is certain: He has
managed, thus far, to elude President
Reagan's special envoy, Donald Rumsfeld.
He has not had to stare the envoy straight
in the eye and say no to him. This was
certainly the case in the past, and Assad
felt no compunctions about doing just that.
Why the difference?
One reason may be that, despite all the
Soviet beefing up of his forces and Assad's
frank assertion that Lebanon must
ultimately become Syria's, international
pressure against all this posturing and war-
maneuvering of his is apparently growing
that even he feels.
The terrorist bombings of the U.S.
Marine compound in Beirut, followed by
the terrorist bombing of the Israeli com-
mand post in Tyre, are likely to have
caused Assad to pause for some second
thoughts about bis overbearing position.
Not the least of the inspiration to be a
mite more temperate can be traced to the
retaliatory strikes by the Israelis, three
times as of the beginning of the week, and
the French for the terrorist bombings.
However much Syria may plead its in-
nocence of these atrocities, it is hardly
likely that such pleas can be taken on their
face entirely, especially at a time when
Assad is backing the war of annihilation
against Yasir Arafat in Tripoli.
So that Assad knows that he is being
called to account, and will continue to be
called to account for his posturing in
Lebanon if not by the French again, then
certainly by the Israelis again and again, as
Defense Minister Moshe Arena vowed
Sunday following reports of the third
Israeli strike, which was the second within
less than a week's time.
Whether or not the United States does
mo re than merely permit its planes to fly
reconnaissance over Beirut, the pressure is
nevertheless on. Assad is sure to un-
derstand that he can not interminably hide
behind his appendectomy-heart attack,
whichever it may be. At some one point, he
must see Rumsfeld and say something that
makes sense.

homes for their families into marketable professions.
Some of the ideas for job taining include: catering, sewing
gardening, home knitting, many of which could be done in
the home.
After suitable training, young mothers and older women
who cannot, or choose not to, leave their homes and
neighborhoods could supplement the family income while
working independently or in partnerships at hours flexible
to the needs of the family.
Women who either have no children or whose children
are semi-independent can be trained to work in a regular
framework outside the confines of the neighborhood Such
work as copy typist, key punch operator, clerk, cashier
etc. could be suitable after the candidate is trained.
My services have been offered to the local Social
Services staff so that a pilot program could be structured in
our neighborhoods to help develop the potential skills of
the women of Gil Amal and Giora'and in so doing further
the ultimate goals of Project Renewal.

Random Thoughts
By MURIEL LEVITT
Just got back from an
extensive tour of Israel and
thought you might like to read
some of my personal observa-
tions.
I was a bit disappointed to
find Israel so big, so ad-
vanced, and so sophisticated. I
expected it to be small, back-
ward, and provincial. No way!
The architecture is extreme
modern and everything is
automated and computerized.
The cities seem very go-go and
up to date, but in the back-
ground are many ruins and
antiquities which I found
captivating.
Israel's greatest asset is its
people. Those I met were
extremely energetic and
positive. 1 found them
courteous and eager to help.
There is no set pattern, they
range from very religious to
reform. Without exception, all
are dedicated to the perpe-
tuation of their state. It was
thrilling to observe such
unabashed patriotism.
Prices are outrageous.
Rampant inflation has driven
costs up beyond belief. Yet the
people cope and manage to
survive. A small bottle of soda
is a dollar or more no matter
where you go. Meats and
canned goods are sky high.
Fortunately fruits and
vegetables are grown locally
and they are more modestly
priced. Clothing and furniture
are out of sight and I marvel at
how Israelis keep going in this
troubled economy.
But the progress made in 40
years is absolutely incredible.
Vast, barren deserts have been
turned into lush green areas.
People reside where none ever
lived before. Electricity has
liberated the desert while
water brings life to what was
once wasteland. The sight of
kibbutzim and civilization in
the middle of the rocky Negev
boggles the mind.
Of course, one of the high-
lights was visiting the Western
Wall. This used to be called
the Wailing Wall, but I was
cautioned not to call it that
any more. The Jews are no
longer wailing, they are
fighting! Never again will they
permit partition nor give up
territory. And the Western
Wall holds all the mystery and
excitement you might imagine.
I wrote out a "brievele,"
inserted it between the stones,
and gave tzedukah. No one
can convince me that my
prayers won't be answered!
Eating is the "noshional"
hobby. I had been told fiat
their food was mediocre at
best. Not true. No matter
where we went we had French
service, a choice of menu, and
palate tempting meals. To be
sure it was different but we

Josef Begun received the max-
imum sentence of seven years
hard labor, followed by five
years internal exile. His crime?
Teaching the Hebrew lan-
guage. The guilty always look
over their shoulders to see who
is watching. If we are there
when they look back and ac-
tively oppose their virulent
anti-semitism, the Soviet
Regime will take note and
have to alter their behavior.
A strong Israel gives the
U.S. and the West a stable
presence in one of the world's
most vital and volatile regions.
Israel opposes Soviet expan-
sionism and provides the U.S.
with invaluable intelligence at
a small fraction of what the
U.S. spends to defend Europe,
Korea and Japan.
aid it receives. This translates
into American jobs and a
stronger American economy.

been appropriated by the U.S.

Number 38
Lev Elbert, Jewish Prisoner
of Consience from Kiev, is
caught in a Soviet frame-up.
Accused of "drug possession"
a few months ago, Elbert has
more recently been accused of
"spreading drugs" (Article
229-1 of the Ukrainian Code)
a charge which carries a
penalty of up to five years in
prison.
The principal investigator
on the Elbert case is Burle-
chenko ot Kiev. On Oct. 21,
Burlechenko paid a visit to the
Elbert home in Kiev.
Harassing Elbert's 12-year-old
son, Carmi, Burlechenko
charged: "Your parents ought
to find a lawyer; the docu-
ments will be ready on
Wednesday or Thursday (Oct.
26, 27) for the trial." (The
UCSJ has learned that the trial
was postponed until Nov. 4.)
Meanwhile, recent events in
Moscow indicate that Soviet
authorities are transferring the
Elbert case to Kiev. Lev
Elbert's father, Chaim, was
told by the Prosecutor
General's office that "the case
on Elbert was a frame-up"
and that "the investigation on
Elbert is contunuing."
Clearly, this decentralization
is an indication that Moscow
wishes to wash their hands of
Elbert is continuing.'
Moscow's localizing the Elbert
case portends danger as anti-
Semitism runs even higher in
the Ukraine than it does in
Moscow.
Protest harassment of
Elbert's son, demand

be dropped immedialdjl|

PARIS (JTA) French
carrier-based aircraft attacked
terrorist strongholds in eastern
Lebanon, in what apparently
was retaliation for
the Oct. 23 truck-bomb attack
on French military headquar-
ters in Beirut after President
Francois Mitterrand said that
he planned punitive action
against those "responsible for
the murder of 58 of our sol-
diers."
The Defense Ministry an-
nounced that the Super Etan-
dard fighter-bombers which
took off from the carrier Cle-
menceau, struck at bases in the
region of Baalbek in Leba-
non's Bekaa Valley.
THE SAME targets were hit
by Israeli jet fighters in a
retaliatory raid last week for
the Nov. 4 truck-bomb attack
on Israeli military headquar-
ters in Tyre. The bases and
adjacent training camps are
reportedly used by some 1,300
Iranian terrorists and their
supporters among Lebanese
Shiite Moslems.
Those elements.are believed
responsible for the attacks on
the multinational force in Bei-
rut and on the Israelis is south
Lebanon. More than 230 U.S.
Marines and sailors, members
of the MNF, were killed when
their headquarters at Beirut
airport were bombed on Oct.
23, within minutes of the
attack on the French uoops.
A french radio commenta-
tor said the air strike "was
presumably coordinated with
the Israeli and American high
commands." He added how-
ever that "each of the three
countries is free to implement
its policy as it sees fit." The
U.S. so far has not responded
with retaliatory action. The
Reagan Administration has
said it would respond to the
attack on the Marines if it
could be determined clearly
which group was responsible
and who gave the orders.

Vice President, Chairman of

mittee, and President of its

Israel's Economic Crisis Staggering
Continued from Page 2
I,hf worldwide foreign aid leg-
Sarion recommended by the
^ministration and enacted
bto la* by Congress -
whether they be grants or
tains- Israel's battle-tested
products, moreover, have
Jover. to be of good quality.
E-SYSTEMS, by the way.
Las not exactly a good loser.
s latest finanical state-
I merit
In its latest iuuuikw amic-
Lt, it acknowledged that it
had lost the contract to the Is-
|raeli firm. But it did not cite
Tadiran's 20 per cent lower
cost Instead, it charged that
Ithe U.S. Government was,
promoting Israeli defense
exports for political purposes.
The implication was clear to
E-Systems stockholders: com-
plain to Washington about
I this foreign competition which
supposedly unfair. Tadiran
I has complained to E-Systems
about the allegation which
also clearly implied that the
Tadiran product was not as
I good as that of E-Systems.
A free trade area and
[increased Israeli defense
exports to the United States,
Halperin said, were really the
I hope of the future for Israel's
1 embattled economy.
He insisted that Israel was
not giving any serious thought
to proposals that it seek a
moratorium on repayment of
outstanding U.S. loans. In
practical terms, that was
simply out of the question.
For one thing, he pointed out,
the U.S. budgetary process
alone makes that course of
| action a non-starter.
ISRAEL, which has never
defaulted on any outstanding
loan, currently owes the U.S.
about S8 billion in loans,
mostly extended since the 1973
Yom Kippur War. But for the
U.S. to forget about those
loans, the Congress would
first have to pass legislation
appropriating every outstand-
ing loan dollar in a new
budget. Thus, if the entire Is-
raeli debt were to be waived,
I Congress would have to pass
an $8 billion budget alloca-
?ion, and the President would
have to sign that into law. In
the process, Israel's interna-
tional credit rating would
plummet.
From Israel's own point of
view, therefore, Israel is
simply better off letting the
Congress pass additional aid
grants to help repay earlier
debts. It would have the same
effect without the political
costs.
The $910 million in eco-
nomic grants expected to win
approval in the pending
foreign aid legislation for
Israel will not even fully cover
the more than $1 billion in
loans which Israel is due to
repay the U.S. this year.
Aridor's plan to dollarize
the economy intrigued many
U.S. officials, although they
suspected that it was political-
ly unrealistic. They are now
waiting to see what his succes-
sor, Yigal Cohen-Orgad,
comes up with.
BUT ONE thing is clear;
there is considerable good will
in Washington, both in the
Administration as well as in
Congress. The American Gov-
ernment wants to help. U.S.
officials have warmly
welcomed the painful austerity
steps Israel has just taken. The
Americans always like to help
those who first help them-
selves.
During his confirmation
hearings on Oct. 18 before the
Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, the incoming As-
sistant Secretary for the Mid-
dle East, Richard Murphy,
said Israel had not sought ad-
ditional foreign aid from the
U.S. in recent days. He noted,
however, that the Administra-
tion would sympathetically
consider future requests.
That's important. But so are
these other steps which will
promote Israeli exports to the
United States.

DEVOTED TO DISCUSSION OF THEMES AND ISSUES RELEVANT TO JEWISH UFE. PAST AND PRESENT__________
Putting Chanukah In Prospective
By RABBI
STEVEN R. WESTMAN,
Temple Beth Torah
We Americans have always
taken it as axiomatic that
"bigger is better." It took the
gasoline crunches of the 1970's
to Ret many of us out of our
big cars; solar heat and
paddle fans testify to our tardy
realization that we can't
expend our resources as if they
were infinitely renewable.
"Small is beautiful" has be-
come the slogan of conserva-
" tion-minded people.
In his best-selling book,
Megatrends, John Naisbitt
describes some of the intellec-
tual and social influences
current in today's society. One
of his most interesting find-
ings, closely allied to "small is
beautiful," is that "the more
technology around us, the
more the need for human
touch." We remember the
"lonely crowd" of the '60's,
and we can sense the correct-
ness of Naisbitt's assessment:
"We must learn to balance
material wonders of technol-
ogy with human spiritual
demands.
How fortunate we Jews are
to have the little festival of
Chanukah! Indeed, the entire
message of the holiday is as
old as the tiny Maccabean
guerrilla band's fight against
the giant Syrian-Greek op-
presor, and as contemporary
as the latest best-seller.
Through Chanukah we remind
ourselves, as we teach the
world, that might doesn't
make right, for it is "not by
might, and not by power, but
by God's spirit" that we pre-
''vail, as we read in the
Haftarah of Shabbat
Chanukah. The little
Chanukah lights, twinkling
against the encircling darkness
of the physical and spiritual
world, publicize the miracle
Bar Mitzvah
that is Jewish survival against
overwhelming odds. We were
never the "big boy on the
block." Whether dispersed
among the nations or
sovereign in our own land, we
Jews have long known how to
balance the material and the
physical. Never wholly deny-
ing or affirming either one, we
have been swimmers across the
stream of human history for
millenia one big balancing
act, if you will. The name of
the game in Judaism is
k'dusha, taking the everyday,
material and elevating it to
Divine service, which confers
holiness upon it. Thus, little
wax candles in a menorah
symbolize God's command to
publicize the miracle that
Chanukah teaches.
How ironic it is, then that
we are turning Chanukah into
a "Jewish Christmas," replete
with "Chanukah Clubs" in
banks to make our holiday
shopping more affordable!
MITCHELL COHEN
Mitchell B. Cohen will have
'his Bar Mitzvah at Temple
Beth Sholom, Lake Worth on
Saturday, Dec. 3, 9 a.m.
Mitchell is the son of Hal and
Linda Cohen of West Palm
Beach. He attends the Jewish
Community Day School of
Palm Beach County and his
main interests are mathematics
and science. Mitchell's
hobbies include running and
computers.
Giving more, bigger, and
better gifts to our children
each of the eight nights of the
holiday is hardly the way to
teach them what Chanukah
truly means. For, in truth,
Chanukah will never "top"
Christmas for those people
whose Jewish lives are impo-
verished the rest of the year.
We can't bribe kids with eight
nights of gifts if that is the
only "Jewish" thing that they
"do" all year, and then com-
plain when Jewishness is peri-
pheral in their lives.
Conversely, it is most unlikely
that a child who spends eight
days of Sukkot sitting and cel-
ebrating in a sukkah will com-
plain that the eight days of
Chanukah aren't replete with
lavish presents!
Judaism blesses us with
times and seasons, with fest-
ivals and days of remembrance
that teach us eternally valid
truths. Let us remember the
enduring message of
Chanukah, as we celebrate the
greatness of smallnes together.

anukkahThe Festival of Lights
.nukkah is an eight-day
fad beginning on the Z5tn
[islev and lasting through
fcndofTevet.
, with other festivals in the
. of the Jewish year, there
iS to be a dual origin to
Cukkah-seasonal and
brical. The historical story
lite well known. Judah the
labee lead a revolt against
[Hellenistic Syrians who
Lied the land of Israel
[nd 165 B.C.E.- and for
treason he was victorious.
ke is a miracle associated
| this victory. Some say
[when the Temple was to
ededicated only one cruse
acramental oil was found.
fough this was only sup-
Id to burn for one day, it
Iculously lasted for eight
[days, during which time
|r oil was prepared. Others
Lain that the victory in it-
Iconstitutes the miracle.
he seasonal referents of
lukkah are much less
kn and, in some ways,
Ih more stimulating. Long
kre the Maccabees, there
[some kind of established
ler festival at this season of
[year (see Babylonian Tal-
|,AvodahZarah8b.).The
lifs were several. One had
io with the gradual increase
laylight after the ominous,
Kdily darkening days of late
Imn. A number of legends
facet Hanukkah with the
ler solstice, which occurs
ling the holiday. Another
lif had to do with the
iling of fire, reported as an
lent Jewish custom at the
Ikation of the Temple
, and related to the event
bribed in 2 M accabees 1:18-
A third was a festive act,
Jted to Sukkot, ~which in-
ped the carrying of wands
bathed with leaves,
nches with their fruit, and
n fronds (see 2 Maccabees
i-8). Possibly a fourth was
HJJH
some sort of camping-out
custom, also related to the
Sukkot theme. (In the Chicago
translation of 2 Maccabees,
the Sukkot reference is
rendered as "the Camping-out
Festival." See 2 Maccabees
1:18.)
Whether Hanukkah draws
its source from the historic,
the seasonal, or, as is most
likely, from some combination
of the two, it is clear that the
central motif is light. The only
special mitzvah related to the
holiday is to kindle the lights
each night.
A few customs. In Turkey
there was the custom of weav-
ing the candlewicks from the
fibers in which the etrog of
Sukkot was wrapped. Follow-
ing the holiday, the candle re-
mains were formed into
another candle which was then
used for searching for leaven
before Passover. This effects a
beautiful continuity to the
holidays.
In Kurdistan, dolls or ef-
figies of Antiochus were
carried around by children
asking for Hanukkah money.
At the end of the day the ef-
figy would be set on fire to the
cries of, "Antiochus, Antio-
chus."
In many parts of the world
it is customary to devote time
to communal and charitable
affairs during Hanukkah.
There is, of course, the
widespread custom of giving
Hanukkah gelt (money) or,
more recently, presents to
children and students. The
intentions behind this include
spreading light and joy, giving
incentive to study, and hasten-
ing the coming of the Messiah.
This custom is actually quite
old and independent of the
parallel custom of giving pre-
sents on Christmas.
Food. Many have the custom
of eating dairy foods, e.g.,
cheese blintzes on Hanukkah.
Also common are dishes
cooked in oil. The most wide-
spread food for the holiday is
potato latkes.
There is a long tradition of
playing games of chance
during the evenings of the
holiday. Although this custom
was often under attack by rab-
binic leadership, it remained a
central element of the celebra-
tion. The most widely played
game is dreidel a derivate of
an old German gambling
game. At present it is played
with a four-sided top on
each side of which is one of the
letters nun, gimmel, heh, and
shin. Although these represent
various gambling terms, they
have been reinterpreted to
mean a great miracle hap-
pened here. In gematria, these
letters have the numerical
equivalent of 358, which is the
same as Messiah as well as
the phrase God is King,
God was King, God will be
King.

Leo Mindlin
Kennedy A Personal Reminiscence
1 REMEMBER exactly
where I was and what I was
doing on Nov. 22, 1963, the
day President Kennedy was
assassinated.
I was on my way to address
a women's organization at a
private home on the bay. I had
already heard the first depres-
sing news reports and was
holding onto the dim hope
that Kennedy might yet
survive.
Apparently, none of the
women at the gathering knew
a thing about the tragic event
when I arrived. Ten minutes or
perhaps even less into my talk,
I could no longer go on. I quit
and told them why.
FIRST, there was stunned
silence. Then I heard some
sobbing. There were also a few
angry shouts of disbelief
mingled with comments that
what I had just made was a
cruel joke. One woman looked
up at me, linked my announce-
ment to an angry column I had
written about the President the
week before, and said that she
had never seen such a display
of bad taste as I was at that
moment guilty of.
When I first arrived to ad-
dress the gathering, I confided
in the director of the organiza-
tion who was waiting to greet
me at the door. Since, in the
confusion that was Dallas, the
news reports were still holding
onto the slender hope that Mr.
Kennedy might yet survive, we
swore one another to secrecy.
After all, the organization had
an important agenda, and we
agreed it was important to try
to carry on.
Now, she reappeared in the
room which she had left at the
beginning of my talk
apparently to find out if the
word from Dallas had changed
for the better. Against a
backdrop of the confusion I
had created, ana in quiet,
almost tearful tones, she an-
nounced that the President
was dead.
IN MY own mind, I recalled
a dinner with Mr. Kennedy I
attended only four days before
in honor of a meeting of Latin
American newspaper
publishers who were gathered
in Miami. It seemed suddenly
inconceivable to me that the
President should be gone;
after all, I had just seen and
heard him in a brilliant and
witty, if slightly sermonizing,
talk.
Many things have changed
in the intervening twenty
years. One is that I have
learned that it is an inflated
and smug bourgeois sensibility
that expects order in the
affairs of man. The fact is that
nothing is orderly, and so
nothing is predictable because
nothing, except death, is
inevitable.
Night no more follows day
as a determined necessity than
are the planets absolutely
ordained in their orbits and
periodicity. Or electrons in
theirs. Or that things must be
fair. Or good. Or that evil
never prevails.
IN THE intervening twenty
years, I have learned to
understand that it was
perfectly reasonable to be
thrilled by the President's
usual sparkle at a public
performance on one evening
and to be sickened and depres-
sed by his assassination several
days later.
Causality and determinacy
are propositions that only
those satisfied with the human
condition ever come to
embrace as a supposed law of
nature. Those who are
dissatisfied with the human
condition the hungry and
the oppressed for example
could hardly mind
"unpredictable" change if it
improves their human condi-
tion.
This, in fact, is what Pres-
ident Kennedy had come to tell
the newspaper publishers.
With an eye focused on the
explosive nature of the Latin
American political future, he
had come to share with them
one of his most intimate
thoughts.
AS A MEMBER of a rich
family, he said, he learned
quicly that if he wanted to
hold onto what was his, he
must be willing to share at
least a small part of it with
those who had nothing.
Hunger or any other kind of
human misery, he said, was a
constant threat to his own
human condition, and giving
up that small share to help
alleviate misery was the best
way he knew how to assure
that he would not lose all of
his good fortune.
It was a splendid message
because it was so uniquely
American absolutely
Jamesian in its pragmatism. I
knew then, as all of us have
since learned by events in
Latin America, that the
message would certainly go
unheeded.
What occurred at that
meeting with the powerful and
wealthy publishers was that
their self-interest prevented
them from accepting the
notion of sharing any of it.
The bourgeois commitment to
determinacy caused them to
conclude that sharing and
acquisition of wealth and
power do not compute.
MANY OF those publishers
at the dinner have surely seen
their day since then, Latin
American affairs being what
they are, so volatile and often
violent. But that they have lost
out can no more be related to
their bourgeois selfishness
than 1 should be horrified,
speaking before a women's
gathering, that so bright and
quick a mind as President
Kennedy's was snuffed out
less than a week later in
Dallas after I had seen him in
Miami.
There was no more
deterministic necessity in the
punishment of the publishers
for their human insensitivity
and even frank greed than
there was protection for Pres-
ident Kennedy in his commit-
ment to social good from the
malevolence of Lee Harvey
Oswald. Or "divine retri-
bution" in Oswald's own
assassination at the hands of
Jack Ruby.
What is it, then, that I
mourn on this twentieth anni-
versary? It is -the passing of a
spirit in the land, which was
not seen after the presidency
of FDR. Or since President
Kennedy's passing.
FOR ALL of his imperfec-
tions in office, and he surely
had many, his was a spirit that
was literate and filled with the
divine capacity to inspire.
Rooted in the knowledge of
our history, he could evoke the
past as a spark of hope in our
future.

government policy at present
does not allow delivery to
South Africa." The first
shipment was to have been
collected by the 50,000-ton
Greek-registered tanker
George B. Sphikas, com-
manded by Capt. Trian-
tafiliou.
On May 19, 1981, British
Petroleum questioned the
vessel's bill of lading which
said "Gibraltar for orders."
This meant the cargo was to go
to Gibraltar where the Master
would receive further sailing
instructions.
Asked to report the final
destination, Bulk checked with
the vessel's Israeli charterers
and was instructed to
designate Haifa.
On May 24, the George B.
Sphikas reached the sea lanes
off the Sullan Voe Harbor but.
was told that it would not be
granted entry. While further
telex messages were exchanged
by the parties concerned, the
ship steamed around slowly.
Finally, on May 30 it was told
to leave the area, with its tanks
still empty.
IN REFUSING to load her,
the British oil authorities were
following guidelines first
issued on January 31 by the
then Energy Secretary, Tony
Benn.
At the time, Benn had been
asked in Parliament how he
was dealing with the threat to
oil supplies caused by the
cessation of Iranian exports.
He replied: "The Government
will expect oil companies
exporting North Sea crude to
do so in the markets of our
partners in the International
Energy Agency and in the
European Community. This
expectation in no way cuts
across the maintenance, to the
extent possible, of any existing
patterns of trade outside those
regions."
Although Benn had not
named Israel, he had
effectively excluded it because
Israel was not a member of
either of the organizations he
mentioned and was not an
existing customer. He did not
exclude Finland which,
although belonging to neither
the IEA nor EEC, was an
existing customer. Ironically,
although this ruling was issued
to deal with an international
oil shortage, it was to remain
the basis of British oil export
policy even though the oil
market has since been
transformed from famine to
feast.
THE POLICY was restated
as recently as last month when
the question was raised at a
London meeting between
Peter Waker, the present
Energy Secretary, and his
Israeli counterpart, Yitzhak
Modai.
British officials strongly
deny that it is intended to
discriminate against Israel,
pointing out that although
other countries are affected by
it only Israel continues to
protest publicly. They also
point out that Britain sells
Israel coal.
Benn told this corres-
pondent that he was aware,
when first announcing the
guidelines four years ago, that
Israel would be excluded but
he had first ascertained that
the U.S. had guaranteed
Israel's oil supplies.
Despite British assurances,
Israel's oil purchasing agents
believe that the elaborate
formula for refusing to supply
Israel is intended to protect
major British oil companies
with stakes in the Arab world,
primarily British Petroleum.

'Outrageous' Soviet Propaganda
NEW YORK A "vicious
cartoon, which gives the lie to
the Soviet Anti-Zionist Com-
mittee's claim that it is not
anti-Semitic," appeared in a
recent Ukrainian publication,
according to Morris B.
Abram, chairman of the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry (NCSJ).
Abram said the caricatures
of Jews, published in the satir-
ical journal Perets, "openly
employed Czarist and Nazi-
like stereotypes of Jews as
arch evil conspirators The
cartoon is all the more outra-
geous," he said, "because it
also suggests Jews were in col-
lusion with Hitler to destroy
their own people." He des-
cribed the drawing as follows:
HEADED "Israeli
Conquerors in Lebanon," it
shows several Jewish figures
sitting on a tank and pouring
over a map labeled "Con-
centration camps 1933-1945
In the background, civilians
are being rounded up by gun-
toting recruits. The caption
.reads: 'Start building the
camps according to the models
already tried.' This atrocious
insinuation demonstrates a
gross insensitivity to the
memory of the millions of
Jews who perished at the
hands of the Nazis and their
collaborators."
According to the NCSJ,
some Ukrainian anti-Soviet
elements participated in the
arrest and murder of Jews
during World War II.
Abram stressed that "al-
though the word 'Jew' is not
mentioned, the ihin veneer of
'anti'Zionism' is remarkably
transparent. Drawn with
stereotypical features straight
out of Nazi propaganda
posters and material used to
incite Czarist pogroms, the
cartoon features a bearded,
hook-nosed figure in the tradi-
tional black hat and coat of
some East European Ortho-
dox Jews. Labeled 'Zionism',
he goads several long-nosed
men in battle fatigues. The
tank is emblazoned with the
Star of David."

This was the first retaliatory

iromptly acknowledged that

limed two planes. The pilot
Ejected and parachuted safely
to an area held by the Leb-

THE PILOT was later
jcked up by an Israel Air

if Israel's intention to strike.
cording to Israeli command
kesmen here, the air strike
came in response to a long
ties of attacks and attempted
jitacks against Israeli occupa-

the U.S. failed to act up to
now, the Israel Air Force was
ordered to destroy the bases
officials here said.
They said the Israeli action
was in line with the policy of
retaliation for any assaults on
Israeli personnel in Lebanon
and that such raids would con-
tinue as long as necessary.
Military sources here said that
care was taken to ensure ac-
curacy in the air strike to avoid
harming Syrian army units de-
ployed close to the target area.
SENIOR ARMY officers
told Israeli military corres-
pondents that the IDF did not
believe that Syria is planning
an imminent attack on Israel,
though the possibility could
not be ruled out completely in
the future. The officers
seemed to be trying to deescal-
ate tension in the region and
play down the recent conten-
tion by some government min-
north.

Israelis Stunned By Inflation,
Fear Situation Will Worsen
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
cost-of-living index rose by
21.2 percent during October,
the highest monthly increase
since the establishment of Is-
rael in 1948.
The Central Bureau of
Statistics, which released the
figures, forecast a similar in-
crease during November,
which would amount to an an-
nual inflation rate of 180
percent this year.
Histadrut Director General
Yeruham Meshel and leaders
of industry expressed shock
and surprise at the unpreced-
ented rise, higher than even
the most pessimistic econ-
omists had been forecasting up
before the official announce-
ment.
MESHEL SAID Histadrut
would demand that an interim
cost-of-living increment be
paid on November salaries on
December 1, in advance of the
next regular increase due with

Some of man's greatest achievers have been women.
January salaries. The COL in-
crease payment then is
expected to be in the vicinity
of 40-50 percent.
The 21.2 percent increase
was due largely to sudden
price hikes at the beginning of
October, followed by a reduc-
tion of government subsidies
for essential foodstuffs and
services and the 23 percent
devaluation of the Shekel.
Many food items rose in price
by 75 percent during October.
The 40-50 percent price hike
for foods and services which
hit consumers will con-
tribute to the equally high
inflation rate predicted for
November.
Even in advance of the
announcement, many firms
and institutions were talking
of impending catastrophe.
University heads said they may
have to close down institutions
of higher learning next month
because of cash shortages.
SOME HOSPITALS said
they would have to close wards
if the government did not sup-
ply cash for supplies and sal-
aries immediately. The di-
rector of a Tiberias hospital
said anyone who broke a leg
would have to limp to the
hospital, and bring his
own bread, bandages and
headache pills. "We won't
have any to give him or her,"
he said.
The Ata textile complex,
which employs some 6,000
workers in the Haifa and the
Galilee regions, said it may be
forced to close in December
because of delays in govern-
ment aid. Management
spokesman said there was no
cash available to pay bus com-
panies hired to transport
workers, or raw cotton and
yarn supplies because of out-
standing debts, and no money
to meet the payroll.
The anticipated 180 percent
inflation for 1983 is double the
rate forecast of former Fin-
ance Minister Yoram A rid or
who had claimed that his
"correct economic policy"
would reduce inflation to
below 100 percent. Now, for
the first time, economic re-
porters are beginning to talk
of "hyperinflation on the lines
of the German catastrophe of
the 1920s."

False 'Open Letter'
Soviet Jews Circulate Obvious Lie
Friday, December 2,1983 / The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 23
NEW YORK (JTA) -
leaders of the Sovct Jewry
Lement here have de-
tunced as blatantly false an
p0oUpenleter',frorn50"Soy,et
Lizens of Jewish nationality
tddressed to American Jews
Eiing them to discount
feports of anti-Semitism in the
USSR.
Referring to the "open
i-uer" which was carried by
Tass the official Soviet News
taency. several days ago,
Morris Abram, chairman of
[the National Conference on
oviet Jewry (NCSJ) said it
ms "a blatant example of
oviet hypocrisy." Herbert
Kronish, chairman of the
Greater New York Conference
on Soviet Jewry (GNYCSJ),
called the letter an "absurd
and tragic lie."
THE SIGNATORIES are
associated with the "Anti-
Zionist Committee of the
Soviet Public." Their letter
said, "We understand that it
may be difficult for some
American Jews whose fathers
and grandfathers fled from
Czarist Russia to escape
pogroms to realize that the
roots of national discord have
long been eliminated in the
Soviet Union."
The letter claimed further
that the Soviet Union has been
"falsely reported as being
hostile to the existence of
Israel" whereas it opposes
only Zionist policies.
American Jews were urged to
work with the Soviet people
for world peace.
Abram observed that the
letter "was a propaganda
offensive tailored to Western
readers couched in
appeals for 'world peace' from
selected Jews, and used the
standard line that the Soviet
Union has nothing against the
state of Israel except its
'Zionist policies.' He added,
"To claim that one is not anti-
Jewish or anti-Israel while
conveniently designating as
'Zionist' a myriad of evils is
Orwellian 'double-think' that
fools no one."
KRONISH DECLARED:
"Claims that anti-Semitism
have been rooted out of Soviet
society are absurd and a tragic
lie. Visitors to the USSR,
including my wife and myself,
in 1977 and again in 1982, can
testify to collectively meeting
thousands of Jews who are
regularly subjected to KGB
violence, denied access to
higher education, prevented
from studying and teaching
Hebrew, and are targeted by
blatant anti-Semitic attacks."
Both Abram and Kronish
suggested that the letter
carried by Tass was an attempt
to counteract the worldwide
outcry which arose
when Soviet Jewish activist
Iosif Begun was sentenced to
12 years' imprisonment and
internal exile because he
taught Hebrew and sought to
emigrate to Israel.

week to the Arab nations to
open a dialogue with Israel
and negotiate for peace. "Let
us forget the bitterness of the
past and move forward to-
gether on a basis of mutual
respect and tolerance to a new
era, which will bring healing
recovery and advance to a
region which has suffered so
much," Herzog declared.
The Israeli President's ap-
peal was made in the course of
his address to the United Na-
tions General Assembly, Her-
zog, who was the former Is-
raeli Ambassador to the UN,
said, "I turn once again to our
neighbors and to the represen-
tatives of the great Arab
nation and the peoples of
Islam, in the name of our
common heritage and the
golden ages of cooperation be-
tween our people in the past,
and say, "Let us renew our
days as in the past for our
mutual benefit and for the
benefit of the peoples of our
region."
AT THE opening of his
speech most of the Arab dele-
gates at the General Assembly
hall rose up and left the hall.
The Egyptian delegation
stayed. Lebanon's representa-
tive was absent. The Iraqi del-
egation tried to prevent Her-
zog from speaking by raising a
point of order. The Iraqi rep-
resentative claimed that "the
State of Israel" is an unclear
term because Israel occupies
Arab land, and therefore Her-
zog should be prevented from
speaking.
The President of the Assem-
bly, Jorge Illueca of Panama,
rejected the Iraqi contention
pointing out that Israel is a
member state regardless of UN
resolutions taken on various
Middle East issues. Herzog
then proceeded to speak.
Herzog devoted the opening
paragraph of his 19 page
speech to criticism of the
United Nations and its treat-
ment of Israel. "As I look at
this Assembly, I am grieved to
pain to note that politics of
fear still persist. Here, the de-
monstrative departure from
this hall of the delegates of
some countries summed up for
you in the most succinct
manner the problems that
Israel faces in the Middle East.
Here you see the problem of
the unwillingness of nations to
listen to each other, to enter
into a dialogue, to try to un-
derstand each other," Herzog
declared.
TURNING TO the issue of
Lebanon, the Israeli President
reiterated Israel's declared in-
tention of withdrawing all its
forces from Lebanon "subject
to satisfactory arrangements
being made which will ensure
that Lebanon will not be used
again as a base for attacks on
Israeli territory." He said as
the start of this process Israel
withdrew partially from Leb-
anon, south to the Awali
River.
"I wish to emphasize that
the partial withdrawal we
made to the Awali River is
part of an overall withdrawal
within the framework of the
agreement reached with the
government of Lebanon,
which the government of
Israel proposes to make in due
course, subject to the neces-
sary satisfactory arrangements
being made to guarantee that
Lebanon will not be used as a
base for hostile action against
Israel," he said.
Herzog warned however
that Syria's massive military
presence in Lebanon increases
the danger that Lebanon will
become once more a base for
attacks against Israel. "There-
fore the sooner Syria accedes
to the Lebanese government's
demand to remove its occupy-
ing army from Lebanon the
better will it be for Lebanon
and for the prospects of
bringing peace and stability to
the entire region," he said.
HERZOG CALLED on
Egypt to return to the negotia-
tions for Palestinian auto-
nomy within the Camp David
framework and urged Jordan
and representatives of the Pal-
estinians in the West Bank to
join in those negotiations as
the only way to peace and a
solution of the Palestinian
problem.
He also appealed to the So-
viet Union to give equal rights
to its Jewish citizens and to
allow those who wished to, to
emigrate to Israel. He called
on all other countries, includ-
ing Syria, to open their doors
to Jewish citizens who wish to
go to Israel.
