deteriorated. After years of
hesitating to deliver arms to
"areas of tension," West
Germany has embarked on a
selling spree to Arab coun-
tries. Germany wants to sell
sophisticated military har-
dware long sought by Israel's
enemies. The lure of the
petrodollar is, after all, too
great to pass up.
THERE IS a change going
on in Germany. Official policy
is moving away from the
"special relationship" to
Israel that was an outgrowth
of the past. In the wake of a
new approach to war and
peace, and as a matter of self-
assertion, the past might be
forgotten. Germany wants to
be free to deal with the Middle
East conflict in its own way.

Will the United States Jus-
tice Department really get to
and reveal the full truth about
the most recent case of yet
another convicted SS mass
murderer who was used by
American intelligence after
World War II?
An investigation into the
matter of Robert Jean Ver-
belen, 72-year-old resident of
Vienna, suggests that there is
doubt as to whether the
government will come forward
with the unvarnished facts.
The Verbelen case will take
more time, trouble and prove
more embarrassing to the
United States than Wash-
ington foresees at this time.
(The media use "Jan" as
Verbelen's middle name.
However, all the official docu-
ments in the case, except one.
use Jean as his middle name.)
WHEN U.S. Attorney
General William French Smith
(who has just resigned) re-
cently ordered his Office Of
Special Investigations (OSI),
the unit responsible for
tracking down and bringing to
denaturalization and deporta-
tion trials suspected Nazi war
criminals living in this
country, to investigate the
Verbelen matter, there was
ambivalence at OSI over the
assignment.
"There's nothing we can do
about Verbelen," an official
told this correspondent after
the Justice Department an-
nounced it would look into
American usage of the war-
time SS officer who had also
been an SD (Sicherheitsdienst.

Mann Urges Community Action To Free Soviet Jews
By LOUISE ROSS
Aublinl News Coordinator
One of the greatest success
stories in American Jewish
life, according to Theodore R.
Mann, immediate past presi-
dent of the National Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry, was the
effort to get Jews out of the
Soviet Union.
In an address to the
Community Plea on Soviet
Jewry sponsored by the Soviet
Jewry Task Force of the
Community Relations Council
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County under the
chairmanship of Shirlee
Blonder, Mann noted that
"between the years 1968-1979,
10 percent of the Jewish
population of the Soviet
Union emigrated to Israel, the
U.S., or other countries.
"But," he reported, "in 1983,
only 56 were allowed out. For
Theodore R. Mane, guest
speaker, urges comnenlty

Jewry.
all intent and purposes, emi-
gration has come to a halt."
Over 600 people packed
Temple Emanu-EI to hear
Mann attribute the success of
the initial surge in emigration,
despite the Soviet tradition
that nobody leaves, to the fact
that the Soviets were trying to
create an atmosphere- of
detente and they thought that
letting some of their Jews out
was Important to the U.S.
government."
Mann emphasized that the
Soviet invasion of
Afghanistan brought Jewish
emigration to a halt. "The
Americans froze relations with
the Soviet Union, which was
an appropriate response, but
that is why emigration is now
down to zero."

Or "call her and ask" is a

Or "stand up and say it" is

Adele Simon, Jewish Federa
tion of Palm Beach County
Women's Division Leadership
Development vice president,
through the vehicle of a poem,
has invited the Women's Divi-
sion board members to acquire
the skill, "Confidently Speak-
ing," at the Feb. 15 and
March 21 board meetings,
7:30 p.m., at the Federation
office. Terri Kurit, program
chairperson, has announced
that Peggy LaCrone, author
of a course on public speaking
for women, will conduct a
workshop as part of the
meeting.
"We try to have a learning
component during our board
meetings," said Mrs. Simon,"
and since our women are
called on to speak both for-
mally and informally in many
different situations, we want
to help them feel more con-
fident."
Mrs. Simon stated that
"As Women Division leaders,
our speaking skills should
include an ability to feel
comfortable talking about
campaign, effectively in-
troduce a guest speaker, and
to speak in front of a group
about theneeds of Jews locally
and in Israel. We need to build
confidence in simple areas
before we progress to more
complex situations.
"I heard Mrs. LaCrone
conduct a session at the Jewish
Community Center's
Women's Day at Camp
Shalom last year, found it
most helpful and wanted to
share my experience with other
women."
Mrs. LaCrone, a MSSW
from Columbia University,
describes the basic ingredient
which qualifies her to teach
this course as the fact that "I
survived in a family of seven
children, 21 grandchildren and
an ever changing throng of
weekend guests in our house.
This means I was born

rage 4 The
How 'Alive' Is the Dying Camp David Agreement?
But the net result would be the m* J
ith the Sinai and the oil wells back in k^B
Egypt's return into the bosom of the
Arab family was preceded by much talk
last week that President Mubarak had
decided that the Camp David agreement is
a dead letter. In fact, Mubarak was quoted
as having declared that now that Camp
David had proved the instrument by which
the Sinai Peninsula and its oil wells were
back in Egyptian hands, the peace treaty
with Israel was no longer of any con-
sequence to him.
Mubarak has since restated Egypt's
formal position on Camp David: it is
binding and of no concern to any other
Arab nation, being a matter of internal
Egyptian interest. And in accepting Egypt
back into the Arab family, Arab leaders at
least on their face made no effort to move
Egypt to rescind Camp David.
None of this, however, says very much
about Camp David's future. Mubarak has
already violated Camp David by with-
drawing Egypt's Ambassador to Israel
after Israel launched its operation in
Lebanon in June, 1982. Nor has there been
any meaningful word or deed from him
since then about sending an Ambassador
back.
On the contrary, Mubarak has been
attaching irrelevant conditions to such a
possibility among them, recognition by
Israel of Palestinian interests on the West
Bank and in Gaza: in short, an Egyptian
demand for Israeli acquiescence to one
more Arab state.
Furthermore, even well before Lebanon,
it was already clear that Mubarak was
doing little if anything in the direction of
implementing yet another major
requirement incumbent upon him by the
stipulations in the Camp David agreement
the establishment of active and nor-
malized relations between the two
signatory nations. The record shows quite
the contrary that under Mubarak,
Egypt has slowed the process to a near halt
as deliberately and as calculatingly as
possible.
U.S. Motives
No one should be surprised at any of these events.
It is, of course, true that peace reigns on the border
between Israel and Egypt. But that is not
necessarily as a consequence of the Camp David
agreement. More likely, it is because Egypt is in no
condition to contemplate a state of belligerency at
this time. And, with its "national honor" vindicated
by the return of the Sinai, there is little Egyptian
need to enter into battle with Israel. What would be
the purpose? At this time, seemingly none.
But at some time in the future, the answer to the
question may well be different at some time in the
future, there may indeed be a purpose for such a
battle.
One that we foresee immediately is the Reagan
Administration once it is returned to office in a
major political victory in the November presidential
election. By then. President Reagan's so-called
"peace initiative," long since pronounced dead by
many a dreamer, will be in higher gear than ever.
This will mean unbearable American pressure on
Israel for a Palestinian "entity" on the West Bank
and in Gaza.
For those who could not understand the
Administration's second move to save the hide of
Yasir Arafat, this last time in Tripoli, let them recall
the Arafat-Mubarak embrace in Cairo shortly
thereafter.
That was the Administration's purpose: to affect
Egypt s P Snled St would either g>ve a ">**
Egyptian hostility or else encourage it by domg
nothing to halt it
with the Sinai and the oil wells back in h J
would then be in a better position u> iJLm
leadership of the Arab world than Eevro^B
penenced since the establishment oftfj
I srael and the four wars it fought with

Barbra Streisand' s Yentl '
is another kind of block-
buster. It is not set in Israel,
nor does it deal with the

Jewish traditions, and the
Jewish communities which

prior to the Nazi Holo-
caust.
"Yentl is that rare Hollywood

Florida Statewide
Holocaust Conference
To Be Held
The first statewide
Holocaust Conference-
Survivor Gathering, on
Sunday, Feb. 26 and Monday,
Feb.2*7 in Miami Beach, will be
under the auspices of the
American Gathering of Jewish
Holocaust Survivors, the New
York-based organization that
organized last year's historic
gathering in Washington
which attracted 20,000 sur-
vivors and was addressed by
President Reagan. Entitled
"The Holocaust: Reality of
the Past; Implications for the
Future," the major event is
being sponsored by the Zachor
Institute for Holocaust Studies
of the Greater Miami Jewish
Federation.
"This regional conference is
very important because it will
bring all of us survivors
together," said Ben Meed,
president of the American
Gathering of Jewish
Holocaust Survivors, "Florida
is one of the most important
areas for such a gathering
because it is the home of many
Holocaust survivors ... the
survivors have the ultimate
responsibility of bearing
witness and perpetuating the
memory of the rich Jewish life
and culture destroyed by the
Holocaust."
The conference will feature
a variety of workshops and
seminars approaching the
Holocaust and its meaning in
histor) from several perspec-
tives. A highlight ol the cveni
will be a private showing ol
The Precious Legacy: Judaic
Treasures from the Czechos-
lovak State Collections, which
will be on display at Miami
Beach's Bass Museum of Art.
Mark fc. Talisman, the indi-
vidual most responsible tor
bringing "The Precious
Legacy" to this country, will
lead the private showing of the
exhibit and is the conference's
keynote speaker. Chairman of
Project Judaica and Vice
Chairman of the U s
Holocaust Council, Talisman
will discuss "The Precious
Legacy: A Gift Ol Life."
Ironically, the collection of
350 artifacts, selected from
145,000 objects, was the result
of the Nazis' efforts 10
establish a "museum to an
extinct race."
The conference will take
place at the Seville Motel. 2901
Collins Ave., and participants
will be housed at the Sans
Souci Hotel. 3101 Collins

On March 4 the State of
Israel Bond Organization will
hold the National Eleanor
Roosevelt Centennial Dinner
at the Breakers.
In December the State of
Israel Bond Organization
officially launched the Eleanor
Roosevelt Centennial Year at a
special ceremony in New York
City attended by James
Roosevelt, communal leaders
and friends of the Roosevelt
family.
At that time it was an-
nounced that the present and
all of the former U.S. First
Ladies are to be a part of the
National Honorary Com-
mittee which is still in for-
mation.
James Roosevelt, eldest son
of the late President and Mrs.
Roosevelt, is the National
Honorary Chairman of the
Eleanor Roosevelt Centennial
and Mrs. Jan Peerece (Alice
K.) of New York will be the
National Chairman.
Eleanor Roosevelt pur-
chased one of the first Israel
Bonds in June, 1951 when the
Bond organization was
founded, from Henry
Morgenthau, Jr., Secretary of
the Treasury under President
Roosevelt and a close friend of
the family. Morgenthau was
chairman of the Bond cam-
paign's board of governors in
the early years of the Bond
organization.

"Prisoners of conscience
must know that someone is
listening to them, also. You
must continue to be their
sounding board," urged
Mann.
Their plight was highlighted
during the Community Plea by
a dramatic presentation under
the direction of Ann Lynn
Lipton, Jewish education
director of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County.
Thirty two teen-agers marched
down the center aisle forming
a human chain of remembr-
ance. As they lit each candle,
one to the other, they recited
the name of a Soviet prisoner
of conscience who was waiting
to emigrate.
Paul Tochner and Mitchell
Levy, students at Midrasha-
Judaica High School, port-
rayed the feelings of two
Jewish teen-agers one in
America and his "twin" in the
Soviet Union with whom he
shared his Bar Mitzvah.
In conclusion, Mrs. Blonder
thanked Mr. Mann for
"giving us hope that our
Paul Tochner and Mitchell Levy lead the thirty-two teen-agers
as they marched down the center aitle of Temple Emanu-EI
during the Community Plea on Soviet Jewry. Over 600 people
watched as the young adults lit candles in remembrance of
Soviet prisoners of conscience who desire to emigrate.

Jewry will succeed." The
evening began with an invoca-
tion by Rabbi Joel Chazin of
Temple Emanu-EI and ended
with two ballads about free-

and later in the
a member of the
NSDAP {Nazi P rty) in its AO
(Ausland Organization) for
full-fledged Nazi Party
members who were citizens of
countries outside of the Third
Reich.
He fled with his Nazi
masters in 1944 back to
Germany. He was "last seen in
Berlin" at war's end. He re-
surfaced in 1945 at an
Austrian Alpine resort, Zell
am See, as a "bartender" for a
U.S. Officers Club close to
then American-occupied
Germany.
Army records show that in
1946, Verbelen worked for
"U.S.A. Special Services" in
Bad Hofgastein, Austria,
some 20 miles from his
previous employment as a
"bartender."
FROM 1947 to 1956, under
at least nine different aliases
most notably, "Alfried H.
Schwab" the one-time SS
officer worked for the U.S.
Army's CIC (Counter Intel-
ligence Corps), its 430th
Detachment (not the 66th as
has erroneously been re-
ported), part of the USFA
(United States Forces,
Austria).
Even though the CIC of-
fered Verbelen assistance in
getting out of Europe, he
declined, went to work for the
Austrian secret police, and be-
came an Austrian citizen in
1959. In 1965. he was
acquitted of War crimes in
Vienna. (In 1947, a Belgian
tribunal had convicted him of
war crimes.)
THESE ARE the bare bones
of the Army documents given
to the ADL. Moreover, vir-
tually all media sources to date
relying on the ADL report
have carried the Verbelen
story to this effect. Sensing a
possibly more involved and
more-in-depth story, even in
the released FOIA documents,
the JTA sought out the Army
records. This correspondent
secured all Verbelen docu-
ments released to the ADL by
the U.S. Army Intelligence
and Security Command in
Fort Meade, Md.
A claim in the media that
the Verbelen case is the second
of its kind to be uncovered
since the Barbie matter is in-
correct. Specific CIC protec-
tive usage of major war
criminals well before the
Barbie case broke has been
documented on several oc-
casions.
THE ADL, in its statement
on Verbelen, invoked Ryan in
quite properly calling for a
"democratic accountability"
in matters of intelligence usage
of Nazi war criminals. How-
ever, Ryan has frequently said
to the media that the Barbie
case was the only instance that
intelligence agencies used a
Nazi war criminal.

Marilyn Lampert [left], chairman of the Morse Geriatric Center
needlepoint project, hands out individual sections and explains
the color scheme to volunteers from all over the community
whose finished collective tapestry will hang in the Center's
lobby.
Needlepoint Project
Initiated For Morse
Geriatric Center
A community-wide needle-
point project has been ini-
tiated on behalf of the Joseph
L. Morse Geriatric Center of
the Jewish Home for the Aged
of Palm Beach County.
Chaired by Marilyn Lampert,
over 40 women from all
segments and areas of the
community and of all ages are
cooperating in needlepointing
numerous 17" square sections
that, when sewn together, will
compose a tapestry, entitled
Temple on the Mount, that
will be displayed on the large
wall in the lobby of the
Center.
The finished tapestry will
measure 8' x 12Vi' and has
been designed by Bill and Beth
Bagnall, who are responsible
for the entire interior layout of
the Center.
Mrs. Lampert said, "Many
of these women have done
needlepoint before, but have
never worked on a joint
project of this kind. The
finished tapestry, targeted for
completion by mid-Spring,
will be the result of a group of
women working as a chorus
line, not as a solo perform-
ance."
She is excited about the
project, not only for the com-
pleted project which will add
to the beauty of the Center,
but because "it is an oppor-
tunity for many different
people in the community who
are involved in so many other
things, to come together with
one goal in mind."
The initial meeting was held
recently at the Center to get
the project going. Materials
were handed out and the
project was explained. Mrs.
Lampert noted that further
meetings will be held so people
will have an opportunity to
consult with one another.

Conversion Institute Graduate' Chooses Judaism [B
Second Session Begins March 1 2
By LOUISE ROSS
Assistant News Coordinator
Although Carol Hood had
been studying Judaism for
many years, she was nervous
about appearing before the
Bet Din (Jewish court) as
one of the prerequisites of her
conversion. Rabbi Steven
Westman, Rabbi Howard
Shapiro and Rabbi Alan
Sherman were to question her
about her sincerity in desiring
to convert and to evaluate her
knowledge about Judaism.
"I'm sure of what I want.*'
(,-irol said in an interview
prior to her conversion. "I've
studied for so long and I don't
want to be rejected."
A few days later. Carol
successfully appeared be:
the Bet Din and completed all
the other prerequisites foi
convening to Judaism. She
had studied with several rabbit
and most recently attended the
nversion Institute spon-
sored bv the Palm Beach
Board of Rabbis and taught b>
\nn Lynn Lipton. Ms. 1 ipton
is the Jewish education
director of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County.
Prior to the actual ceremonv
performed by Rabbi Steven
Westman at Temple Israel.
Carol participated in a mikvah
(ritual submersion in water)
held in the ocean. Fred's 93
year old grandfather who
winters in Miami Beach
witnessed the conversion.
Carol began to studv
Judaism before she met Fred.
"I was born and raised a
Catholic but when I began
college and was removed from
the apron strings ol
Catholicism. I started to stud>
other religions as I had
questions that were nol being
answered." Evervthing she
studied and learned about
Judaism brought it clos<
her. "It was like coming
home. It was like a unic
my own feeling in m> hear:
with a religion I could freel)
express."
Carol was well conversant in
wh> she chose Juda
"Specifically, God is
there is no idolatry, there is no
intermediary between God and
myseli and the rabbi is
guide and teacher. Judaism is
a religion ol hope, not d(
which teaches that man and
society are perfectable. It
teacher tree will, nol
surrender yourself to another
human (like Jesus) and
oriented toward thi
ring life instead of death."
(red, who considers hirt
a living Jew and nol a
religious lew. is excited about
ing this expei t i- with
'.. "It's almi -he is
fre< x ding a
philosophy that is a pi
and that she can live with."
Although when Carol and
Fred met he was unaware
she was considering Juda
he says now that he loves the
fact that she has chosen
Judaism which ultimately will
make a difference in how their
children arc raised '"I was
raised in a Jewish home, but
during my bachelor days mv
Jewish observances were
minimal. I am looking for-
ward to getting back into a
lew ish home."
According to Fred, his
Florida Federations
parents loved Carol anyway
but were a little relieved to

minimum.
The volunteers' day started
early and was filled with
manual labor. "At times,"
Rosoff said, "I found the
work hard heavy." After
satisfying meals, there were
evening rap sessions during
which an Israeli officer would
translate the news from the
daily newspapers.
The meals were described by
Rosoff in detail, belying the
fact that he lost 30 pounds.
"When 1 arrived, they didn't
have a uniform large enough
to fit me. So the tailor sewed
two pairs of pants together.
But when 1 left, I could fit into
any regular uniform," relates
Rosoff.
The government of Israel is
very interested in the volunteer
program and makes every
effort to insure its success. "If
people complained about their
assignments, instead of
sending them home and saying
'thank you', they tried to find
jobs for them they can and will
do," explains Rosoff.
"General Davidi who is
close to 70, retired, 6M" and

Solomon of Askalon made life
much easier for him and the
other volunteers. A poem
written by one of the members
of the group attests to the
camaraderie that was
achieved. With apologies to
Bob Hope, an excerpt reads,
"Thanks for the enemy

DEVOTED TO WSOJSSJOS Of THEMES AND
ISSUES RE-WT TO JEWISH JFE *T AS? PTSEN'
Participation Vital
To Jewish Community
B> RABBI
STEVEN R.NESTMAN
Temple BethTonh
The mentality of our
Biblical ancestors which led
them to offer animal sacrifices
as a means of worship is so
utterly alien to most of us that
we simply dismiss the practice
as primitive barbarism and let
it go at that. Indeed, the
Reform movement in Judaism
eliminated all references to the
korbanot from its classical
liturgy, and the Conservative
prayerbook. while still con-
taining the details of the sacri-
fices in the Musaf service,
refrained from translating
them into English.
It is interesting to note that
the sacrificial system which is
so richly detailed in the Torah.
including this week's portion.
was a remote memory to the
Rabbis who gave us the wa> of
life that we call Judaism. But.
rather than consigning all of
these passages to the ash heap
of outmoded spriiualny, they
sought to find new meanings
in the ancient words, new
lessons from the old practices.
And their probing can
illuminate our lives as well.
In Exodus 29:39. we are
taught. "You shall offer one
lamb in the morning, and >ou
shall offer the other lamb at
twilight." Pretty straight-
forward, no? But. to an
ancient rabbinic genius, these
words took on a whole new
meaning. He taught that man
must try to serve God in the
morning as well as in the
twilight of life. Youth,
symbolized by the morning, is
physically strong, but without
the accompanying maturity o(
mind and spirit that old age
brings. Old age. symbolized by
the twilight, brings under-
standing, but often is accom-
panied by a decline in physical
vigor. The Torah teaches us,
thus, that we must serve a-
well as we are able throughout
our lives.
What a wonderful lesson
this is for our community:
How often do we hear >oung
people, singles or young
married couples with
without children say, "I
cannot afford to pal e in
the life oi the synagogue or the
Federation or Israel-centered
or you name it.
Raising a family, buying a
home, acquiring the amen:
life all take unqualified
precedence over building u
maintaining a vital Jew
community. By the same
token, older people are heard
to say "What? Another
building fund? We built three
temples up North! What1
Another UJA campaign? We
cive uv North! We've done
our part let the young
Rabbi Westman

County Commissioners Pay
Tribute To Wallenberg
On Tuesday, Jan. 24, the
County Commissioners pro-
claimed Jan. 26 to be Raoul
Wallenberg Day in Palm
Beach County "in honor of
the humanitarian principles
exemplified by the deeds of
'the righteous gentile'."
Dennis Willinger, chairman of
the Raoul Wallenberg com-
mittee in Palm Beach County,
was instrumental in having the
commissioners declare this
proclamation.
In a letter to the Post,
Willinger stated, "Raoul
Wallenberg, a Swedish
diplomat in Budapest, risked
his life to save tens of
thousands of Hungarian Jews
from death and was credited
with saving 100,000 lives. He
was arrested at the end of
World War II by the Russians
and sent to Russia, where
according to the Russians, he
died. Prisoners who escaped
from Russia and came to the
West said in 1974 Wallenberg
Dennis Willinger, chairman of
the Raoul Wallenberg com-
mittee in Palm Beach County,
holds the proclamation of the
Board of County Commis-
sioners of Palm Beach County
declaring Jan. 26 as Raoul
Wallenberg Day.
was still alive."
U.S. Rep. Tom Lantos and
his wife Annette have spear-
headed the drive to bring the
plight of Wallenberg to
national attention. They have
succeeded by having him made
an honorary citizen of the
United States in tribute to his
"humanitarianism and
bravery." The Lantos' were
saved by Wallenberg in
Budapest when they were
children.
According to Willinger, a
campaign to nominate
Wallenberg for the Nobel
Peace Prize is under way,
along with an effort to issue a
special U.S. stamp to honor
him.
The efforts on behalf of
Raoul Wallenberg have been
made to urge the United States
to continue its efforts to secure
his release. He was last seen in
1972 by Asher Hanukaiev in
Sverdlousk Prison in Soviet
Eastern Europe.
