national security issues. He
notes that Jews "have come a
long way" in making advances
in recent years. But there are
still problems.
"BECAUSE they were
considered to be naturally pro-
Israel and therefore suspect,
Jews were not actively
recruited," he said. A former
senior CIA official was quoted
as saying: "It was an un-
written rule that we didn't
want any Jews working on the
Middle East problem. So most
of the analysts were Arabists
they had studied in Egypt,
Syria, and the like, or were the
children of businessmen and
others who had lived there."
Van Atta pointed out that
for two decades, the Israeli
desk in the CIA was "tucked
away in the counter-
intelligence staff because its
chief, James Jesus Angleton,
was chief liaison with Israeli
intelligence The desk has
since been moved out of
counter-intelligence, and a
number of Jews have attained
prominent positions within the
Agency."
But he added that
"suspicion lingers." He cited
the circumstances surrounding
the resignation of Max Hugel
as chief of clandestine services
only a few weeks after CIA
director William Casey named
him to that slot in 1981.
THUS, Van Atta wrote,
"the old-boy network success-
fully aided the ouster" of
Hugel by "playing on this
mistrust of Jews."
"Widespread whispering at
Langley insinuated that
Hugel, a Jew, was leaking
information to Mossad, the
Israeli intelligence service,"
Van Atta said.
Understandably, that
suggestion in the article infu-
riated Hugel, a wealthy New
Hampshire businessman who
had worked closely with Casey
in Ronald Reagan's 1980
presidential campaign.
Shortly after Casey named
Hugel to the sensitive position,
the Washington Post
published front-page alleg-
tions from two of Hugel's
former business associates
charging that he had been

Decisions Israel Must Make After Lebanon's Suicide
those years as the Hitler Holt*,,,
birth of the State of Israel. ^
There are many awesome decisions Israel
must make now that President Gemayel
has officially scrapped the Israel-Lebanon
accord of last May 17. Perhaps the most
agonizing is to what extent the Israel
Defense Force will adopt the position of an
occupying power in southern Lebanon.
The moral and military problems that
such an occupation would pose apart, there
is the terrible burden of the cost of such an
ongoing operation that seems to have no
expiration date. With Israel's economy
already in shambles, what a continued IDF
presence in southern Lebanon would mean
is almost incalculable.
Then there is the question of world
opinion, which so far as Israel is concerned,
always operates on a double level of ethical
practice, American opinion included. The
Reagan Administration may be outraged
today that President Gemayel has
scrapped the accord with Israel. Certainly,
Secretary of State Shultz has been ex-
tremely vocal on this issue.
But now, also, we have withdrawn our
Marines from Beirut. What is more, there
are consistent reports that suggest that the
American naval presence to which the
Marines have withdrawn are themselves
thinning out disappearing from the
scene in favor of other more dangerous sites
suggesting new trouble in the Middle East,
such as the Strait of Hormuz.
So that, in essence, the Reagan
Administration has virtually given up on
Lebanon and the search for a political
solution to the civil war there. With the
American presence gone, it will not be long
before public opinion is once again en-
flamed by the media, if not the
Administration itself, to wonder why the
Israelis remain if that is Israel's
ultimate decision.
Once we have cut and run, why should
anyone else remain? The question, of
course, will beg the issue, which is as it was
when the Israel-Lebanon accord was first
signed: What is Syria doing in Lebanon?
Hence, we can look forward to mounting
world pressure on Israel to withdraw, with
little or nary a word about the ultimate
Syrian-Soviet occupation of Lebanon in the
cause of a "Greater Syria." Indeed, with
little or nary a word about what sent Israel
into Lebanon in the first place: terrorist
activity against its northern border set-
tlements.
Needless to say, it will be a difficult kind
of pressure to bear. That is why Israel's
decisions decisions that are probably
being made right now are awesome
decisons.
A Great Career
For 48 years, John Kayston devoted
himself and his journalistic career to the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency. Now, he has
retired. At a recent JTA Board of Directors
meeting in Atlanta, Kayston was honored
for his "outstanding and dedicated service
to promoting the dissemination of Jewish
news around the world." It was a justified
honor in every sense of the word.
At his retirement. Kayston was
executive vice president of the JTA and for
many decades before that. he presided over
the news agency's activities during some of
the most turbulent years in Jewish history.
The events that he and the JTA reported
during those years attest to the turbulence
and to the effective job he and the agency
performed in the cause of Jewish jour-
nalism.
In accepting his award, Kayston himself
cited the two most important events of

Community Relations Board
Protests Flagler Museum Practices
The following letter was sent to the directors of the
Flagler Museum by the chairman of the Community
Relations Board of Palm Beach County. Rabbi Alan
Sherman, director of the Community Relations Council of
the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County, has been a
member of the Community Relations Board since its in-
ception in 1980.
February 27, 1984
The Flagler Museum
The Whitehall Way
Palm Beach, FL
Dear Directors:
The Palm Beach County
Board of County Commis-
sioners desires to promote and
encourage fair treatment and
equal opportunity for all
persons and to promote
mutual understanding and
respect among all members of
all economic, social, racial,
religious and ethnic groups,
and to endeavor to eliminate
discrimination against and
antagonism between religious,
racial and ethnic groups and
their members. To this end,
the Board of County Commis-
sioners of Palm Beach County
recognizes that a Community
Relations Board can provide
an invaluable service through
serving as a forum for discus-
sion of those matters that
cause intergroup tensions.
At its regular meeting in
January, the Community
Relations Board of Palm
Beach County was advised
that a group leasing the Flagler
Museum was possibly exclud-
ing others from its activities
which are held at the museum.
We are further advised that
the Flagler Museum is a tax-
exempt organization. Being a
tax-exempt organization, the
museum is benefiting from the
entire public and should not
allow any group or orga-
nization to use its facilities if
there is evidence to show that
unfair treatment is being
practiced by such group(s).
We, the Palm Beach County
Community Relations Board,
urge the Directors of the
Flagler Museum to ensure that
any organization or group(s)
that leases or any way utilizes
the museum practice fair and
equal treatment to the public.
We are hopeful that this
matter is cleared up to the
mutual benefit of all concern-
ed.
Sincerely,
Leon Herbert.Chairman

B> MARILYN GRANT
Project Renewal Coordinator
To man> of >ou, she is not a new face, but an old fri<
and colleague in Project Renewal. Ziona kemelman. who
was the first director of Hod Hasharon's Project Renewal,
isback in her post, replacing Katnel Wild who ha- resigned
to take a position in industry.
Ziona is a dynamic and energetic young woman with a
background in project management and communitv
organization. She is married (her husband Arthur is I he
son of the author of the famous 'Rabbi" detective bookm
and the mother of three boys.
Several vears ago, the Kemelmans bought an old house
with, for israel. a lot of land and began the pro..-- 0\
enlarging and renovating to fit their needs.
Before long. Ziona was employed in the Giora neigh-
borhood of Hod Hasharon a- the first communitv worker
ever in that neighborhood. She found a shocking situation.
A whopping 19 percent of all the families in Giora were
families in distress, and 14 percent of all male head- ol
family were, or had been, in jail.
The elementary school dropout rate was high, and the
town's high school had almost no neighborhood children
Youngsters "hung out" at the infamous Giora "<

The situation looked almost hopeless.
Then concurrently, two things happened a new

The first item on her agenda is to reactivate the neigh-
borhoods committees and to get more and more of the
neighborhood residents involved in the activities of the
project.
Steering committee meetings, which have been held on a
less than frequent schedule, are now being held every two
weeks. An all-day planning seminar for neighborhood
activists and professionals is scheduled, and a second
leadership training course will begin this month.
Together with Hadassah Solomon, associate director
and Shasha, Saadia, and Malka of the professional staff,
Ziona is determined to get the project going at full steam.
With her determination and enthusiasm, and with our
help, we know that she'll succeed.

long-sought solution to Rabbi
Sherman's problem and the
answer to the prayers of the
Jewish prisoners at the Glades
Correctional Institute. For the
past five years, Rabbi Sher-
man accompanied by members
of the Chaplain Aide
Program, has been providing
religious services for the
Jewish prisoners at the
Correctional Institute for the
High Holy Days, Chanukah,
and Passover. However, it's a
long time between holidays
and a time consuming, bumpy
stretch of road to the prison
from West Palm Beach. None
of the regular volunteers in the
Chaplain Aide Program lives
close enough to visit the men
regularly, at frequent in-
tervals.
Rabbi Sherman made
inquiries among the Jewish
residents at Belle Glade. None
felt qualified to perform such
a service. The Rabbi's ap-
proach to P.G. was rather
tentative. After all, a police
officer from red-neck country
to provide Jewish services was
too much to expect. The long
shot paid off.
Officer Meskin was recep-
tive to the Rabbi's suggestion.

Paradoxical
Purim
By RABBI WILLIAM MARDER
Temple Beth David
Purim is certainly the most paradoxical of Jewish
holidays. True, it is based on a Biblical book, the Scroll of
Esther; but it is the only book of the Bible that does not
mention the name of God, not even once! Purim is one of
the important post-Biblical holidays of the Jewish
calendar, sharing that definition with Chanukah; but it is
the only holiday of importance on which Hallel (Psalms of
Praise) is not recited. The heroes of this holiday, its major
characters, are Jews who arc assimilated to their Persian
environment, and, at best, ambivalent about their
Jewishness; Mordecai goes so far as to instruct Esther not
to reveal her origins or her people to anyone at the King's
court. And Purim has its detractors among some con-
temporary Jews who are most sensitive to Jewish ethics;
they claim that Purim is "un-Jewish" because of values
which it highlights, particularly the desire for revenge
described in the Megillah.
With all this counting against it, can Purim claim our
allegiance? Does it teach a lesson, or have a value, for us
today?
The answer, it seems to me, lies in the term "k'lal
Yisrael" a term referring to the totality of Israel, the
worldwide Jewish community, the all embracing idea of
peoplehood. For Purim's original claim on Jewish
emotions, as recorded in the Megillah itself, is that the joy
of a particular Jewish community is the joy of all Jewish
communities; and conversely, the adversity of one Jewish
community is the adversity of all. This recognition of the
relationship of one Jew to another, of one community to
another, is central to Purim's message.
The awareness that the fate of one Jew is shared by all,
that the tragedies and dark events of Jewish history impact
on all Jews everywhere this awareness is a force which
has bound our people together, through space and time,
through centuries and continents. K'lal Yisrael that
overreaching community of Israel everywhere, and its
importance for us, was the motive force behind Purim's
acceptance in ancient times. And that same motivating
force is needed in today's world as well. Out of this sense
of shared concern, of real Jewish community, derives a
strength which we continue to cherish.
a winder at all).
The reading is often done in
a comical way with dif-
ferent voices and impromptu
dramatics. Esther 1:7 (the first
six words), 3:15, and 7:4 are
sung to the trope for
Lamentation. Verses 2.5 and
8.16 are recited by the
congregation before the
reader. Where the ten sons of
Haman are listed, they must
all be read in one breath.
It should be kept in mind
that the mitzvah involved with
the reading of the Megillah is
to hear it. Traditionally, every

A section called "Al ha-
Nissim" For the Miracles
is added to the Amidah and
Grace after Meals during
Purim.
Purim is notorious for its
plays and parodies. No one,
not even the most learned and
pious of scholars, is free from
scathing attack. Parodies of
the Talmud and other religious
writings have been combined
into a virtual "liturgy" for the
day.
Aside from the drunken
ecstacy, Purim is also a time of
general good feeling for one
another. It is a mitzvah to give
presents to at least two poor
people during the holiday. In
addition, there is the custom
of shalakhmones. Every
person is supposed to send
presents of at least two kinds
of fruit, cookies, or candies to
at least one friend. It is
customary, however, to give
extensively. This is one of the
most delightful of Jewish
customs. It is fun to visit
heavily Jewish parts of New
York (e.g., Williamsburg) and
see hundreds of children in
costumes delivering shalakh-
mones.
Traditionally, there is a
Purim seudah (feast) in the
afternoon of the day. Often
relatives and friends gather
together for this feast.
The traditional Purim food
is hamantashen a tri-
cornered dough cookie
generally filled with poppy
seed (mohn). Kreplach, three-
cornered meat-filled dough, is
also customarily eaten. The
triangular shape supposedly is
representative of Hainan's
hat.

Insurance Institute in Israel
recently issued a report in-
dicating that the number of
families below the poverty
level has increased by 20,000
to a total of 50,000 families.
"Most of these families are
Oriental Jews," Roumani
said. "This is a regression in
terms of bridging the socio-
. economic gap in Israel."
Pointing out that this
regression occurred during the
recent period of the Likud
government, he said: "For
some of us this is not surpris-
ing. It is common knowledge
that Oriental Jews supported
the Likud and brought it to
power. I think they did so not
so much because they sup-
ported the Likud's economic
ideology, but as a protest vote
against the Labor Party and its
29 years of paternalism and
undermining the Sephardi
heritage while in power."
ACCORDING TO
Roumani, there has been a
change in this regard under the
Likud sovernment. "The
Likud and Mcnachem Begin,
its leader, restored for the
Orientals the image of a tradi-
tional Jew with whom they can
identify." The Likud also
helped the Sephardim in
developing a positive self-
image on the personal level, he
observed. He noted that under
the Likud government there
are more Sephardi Jews in the
Knesset and in high govern-
ment positions.
Under the Likud govern-
ment the economic gap
seemed, until recently, to have
been narrowed, Roumani said.
He said that the Oriental Jews
have enjoyed the economic
prosperity in recent years
together with the rest of the
population. "That well being
might have been false but
nevertheless the individual's
economic situation has im-
proved," Roumani said.
This situation, however, has
drastically changed in the last
few months, and the economic
gap has widened, Roumani
said. "I regard the economic
gap although it affects
children's schooling and their
way of life as soluble," he
said, adding: "Recent history
has shown that with resources,
properly channeled, economic
hardship can be alleviated."
HE CONTINUED: "What
is more important, and
becoming pressing, is the
cultural gap in Israel; namely,
what kind of culture we are
going to see in Israel? Is it
going to be a reflection of
Ashkenazi Jews or is it going
to reflect the pluralism of the
Israeli society? Israel is a
country where East can meet
West and South can meet
North. It can be very exciting
to all members of society.
Cultural pluralism is the
answer to the cultural gap in
Israel."
Roumani said that "in-
terestingly enough" the trend
toward pluralism was started
under Labor rule in 1976. In
that year, he recalled, the
Education and Culture
Ministry established the
Center for the Integration of
Oriental Jewish Heritage
which has been subsidizing
since then teaching and
research on the subject in all
universities in Israel.
Roumani said that the
Elvachar Center for Studies in
Sephardi Heritage at Ben
Gurion University started in
1977 with only eight courses
and a handful of students.
Today, he said with obvious
delight, the Center offers 35
courses and has some 600
students, about 12 percent of
the total student population at
the university.

Study Backs Cutting Cholesterol to Curb Heart Disease Risk
By PHILIP M. BOFFEY
I*kMI u Tta N Yrt rkaa
WASHINGTON. Jan. 12 Medical
researchers today announced "the first
study to demonstrate conclusively"
that lowering cholesterol levels in the
bloodstream reduced the rate of heart
attacks In a high-risk group of middle-
aged men
The scientists had cooperated in a 10-
yaai. SIM million study sponsored by
the Federal Government that used a
potent cholesterol-towering drug,
cholestyramlne. They said the drug
substantially cut both blood cholesterol
levels and coronary heart disease in
middle-aged men who started out with
very high cholesterol levels.
Bull M Rifklnd of the National
Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, who
was project director for the research,
said the study demonstrated "that the
risk of coronary heart disease can be
reduced by towering blood choles-
terol.*'
Previous studies associated Ugh
btood cholesterol with oudtovascaiar
disease, and many health groups have
recommended tow rhosssterol diets,
but whether JmsatlsnH reduction
could actually reduce heart (bseass
r^reniataedaflor^nouestioB
The participating scientists sug-
gested that their findings could have
broad implications. Although this
particular study relied primarily on s
drug to reduce btood cholesterol, the
scientists said it supported the view
that lowering of cholesterol through
diet would also be beneficial.
At the news conference, the scien-
tists cautioned that they were not urg-
ing vast numbers of Americans to start
taking the drug, which is available by
prescription. Instead, they suggested a
check with the doctor to see if btood
cholesterol levels were high, use of diet
as the first means to reduce choles-
terol, and drug therapy only where that
seemed medically necessary
Although this study treated only mid-
dle-aged men with very high choles-
terol levels, the scientists suggested
that tens of millions of Americans who
have moderately elevated blood choles-
terol levels, including women and
younger men, could also reduce the
nsk of heart attack by lowering their
cholesterol. _______________
The study was a landmark" whose
results had been "anxiously awaited."
said Antonio M Gotto, Jr, presudent of
the Airr^ Heart Association, a on
vate organisation that has tong urged
Americans to maintain diets aimed at
towei ing nmiewmui seven.
George Lundberg. editor of The Jour-
nal of the American Medical Associa-
tion, which will publish two major
papers from the study in its Jan. 20
issue, predicted, "These two articles
will be looked at 25 years from now as
the definitive articles that secured the
cholesterol theory of coronary heart
disease."
Nearly 4.0N Men Studied
The study involved 3.806 men. aged
35 to who had very high btood cho-
lesterol levels: at least 265 units, well
above the average of about 210 for that

that high, the institute said
The men in the study had no sign of
heart problems when the study started,
and the trial was designed to see
whether lowering blood cholesterol
would prevent the later occurrence of a
heart attack.
Half of the men. randomly chosen,
were given the cholesterol-lowering
drug while the other half received a
look-alike placebo. Both groups were
also instructed to follow a moderately
restricted diet aimed at lowering cho-
lesterol. The men's health was moni-
tored for seven to 10 years
Both the diet and the drug clearly
lowered cholesterol levels. For a brief
period when both groups were treated
through diet only, total cholesterol
levels fell 3 5 percent Then, when drug
therapy was introduced, total choles-
terol fell an additional 14 percent in the
group that received it in the first year.
There was only a slight further decline
in the group treated with diet only. The
drug produced an even sharper reduc-
tion in tow density lipoprotein choles-
terol, the type particularly associated
with coronary heart disease.
Although this drop in cholesterol
levels was less than the scientists had
expected, it produced a significant
drop in coronary heart disease, said
Robert I Levy, vice president for
health science at Columbia University,
one of the scientists speaking at the
news conference today at the National
Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md
The group treated with the drug ex-
perienced only 155 coronary heart
deaths and nonfatal heart attacks, well
below the 107 recorded in the compari-
son group. The drug produced a 24 per-
cent reduction in coronary heart deaths
and a 10 percent reduction in nonfatal
heart attacks.
As a rule of thumb, the investigators
said, each 1 percent fall in cholesterol
was assnriated with a 2 percent reduc-
tion in the rate of coronary heart dis-

The drug treaUnsat also cut the inci
donee of angina pectons heart pain
by 20 percent, of coronary artery by
pass surgery by 21 percent, and of poor
heart performance after an exercise
test by 25 percent
The scientists said they found no de-
bilitaung side effects from the drug.

Is are.
"Once the U.S. is out of
Lebanon, Israel will focus on
its limited security needs there.
Let Lebanon settle its own
internal disputes. When all the
nations will turn back to the
basic issue of the peace
process, it will be better for
Isael and all the countries in
the region."
Syria is not challenging the
legitimacy of the Gemayel
government, leading Rabin to
believe that Syria doesn't want
to annex Lebanon. "What
they want is better repre-
sentation in the Lebanese
Parliament," stated Rabin.
Although Syria, backed by the
Soviet Union, has the upper
hand in deciding the political
future of Lebanon, Israel still
will be able to bring about its
own goals for peace, he said.
Groundwork for the peace
process is being laid with
Jordan, the only country in a
position to help Israel, Rabin
stated. King Hussein of
Jordan has freed his
Parliament for action for the
first time since 1974 and he is
allowing Palestinians from the
Israeli occupied West Bank to
vote in the upcoming elections
in Jordan, he said.
According to Rabin, there
are good chances for the peace
process to go forward in 1985.
"In an election year, the U.S.
can do little politically to help
Israel. In the meantime, Israel
must make itself stronger
economically and must ad-
vance its social programs."
As honorary chairman of
the dinner, James Roosevelt,
eldest son of President
Franklin Roosevelt, gave
tribute to the state of Israel

Mrs. Shirlee Blonder,
Chairperson of the Soviet
Jewry Task Force of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County joined the
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry (NCSJ) in an inter-
national Day of Concern for
the Soviet Jews on March 15.
According to Mrs. Shirlee
Blonder, a variety of events
was held throughout the
world, and across the nation,
organized in cooperation with
the NCSJ.
In connection with the day
of concern Mrs. Blonder
issued the following state-
ment:
"Events affecting the Jew-
ish minority in the Soviet
Union have taken a turn which
demands the attention of
people of good will through-
out the world. This is why we
had agreed to participate in an
International Day of Concern
for Soviet Jews, on March 15.
"On March 15, Anatoly
Shcharansky began his eighth
year of imprisonment. The
enduring strength of this man
has become a symbol to people
in the Soviet Union and
throughout the world: a Jew,
imprisoned for wanting to live
as a Jew in his homeland,
Israel. There are now fifteen
other Jewish Prisoners of
Conscience. Thousands more
are in limbo: denied their right
to practice their religion, to
study Hebrew, to pass their
heritage on to their children,
and yet refused the right to
leave. Jewish emigration from
the Soviet Union has been
virtually halted, dropping to
about 1,300 individuals for
1983, the lowest number since
the late sixties.
"Just one year ago the
Third World Conference on
Soviet Jewry was held in Jeru-
salem. It was attended by
thousands of people from the
United States. The event
rekindled the spirit of each
Jew imprisoned, of each
family refused permission to
leave from the Soviet Union.
As we stand in solidarity with
Jews in the Soviet Union, we
are committed to carry that
spirit forward and to demon-
strate our concern.
"Let us reaffirm our
commitment to their freedom.
In so doing, we also reaffirm
our commitment to the value
of human life."

involved in some improper
deals many years earlier.
Hugel strongly denied the
charges, but resigned in order
to spare Casey and the
President any further political
embarrassment. Since then, he
has worked aggressively to try
to clear his name. He has filed
suit against his two accusers,
Tom and Sam McNeil, but
they have mysteriously disap-
peared.
THERE, of course, had
been resentment to Hugel's
appointment among many ol
the professionals at the CIA.
They clearly did not like the
fact that an outsider was being
brought into that position,
especially someone without
much experience in the intel-
ligence business.
As it was, they were not
happy with Casey's own
appointment by President
Reagan to head the agency.
Cord Meyer, a former CIA
agent who now writes a news-
paper column, brought the
displeasure over Hugel's
appointment to the surface
with an initial article con-
demning the appointment.
Others quickly followed,
generating momentum against
Hugel. It was then that the
Washington Post came for-
ward with the McNeil charges.

Bob Woodward, who co-
authored the story, dismissed
the assertion that anti-
Semitism played a role in the
Hugel affair. In an interview,
he said he did not come across
anv ev idence to support such a
contention during his investi-
gation of the McNeil accusa-
tions and the events leading up
to Hugel's decision to leave
the CIA.
In a letter to
Washingtonian publisher
Philip Merrill, Perito wrote:
"Mr. Hugel is also outraged
by the sugestion that CIA
policy and personnel are
manipulated by an anti-
Semitic old-boys network. II
in fact Mr. Van Atta or
someone assisting him actually
has information concerning an
anti-Semitic conspiracy to
remove Mr. Hugel from
office, we believe that such
information should be
divulged in order to permit full
investigation of these serious
charges."
JOHN SANSING, execu-
tive editor of the magazine,
told me that he was in touch
with Hugel's lawyer and in-
tended to find some mutually-
acceptable forum lor Hugel's
denials to be published,
probably in the form of a
letter to the editor. "We'll do
something." Sansing said.
Is there still some lingering
anti-Semitism in the U.S.
governmental bureaucracy?
Probably, but the fact also
remains that many Americans
Jews today do serve in ex-
tremely sensitive national
security positions involving
Israel and the Middle East.
Henry Kissinger, after all. was
Secretary of State. Sol
Linowit/ and Robert Strauss
were special Middle East
envoys.
Is there fear that American
Jews are leaking information
to the Mossad? Not really,
because experienced U.S.

This Bill would sanction the
use of public schools as arenas

with the fundamental law ot
our land guaranteeing -epara-

could steer our country

stated "we remember Dr. King
as a staunch friend of Israel
who shared our dream of a
land based on the principles of

Insurance Institute in Israel
recently issued a report in-
dicating that the number of
families below the poverty
level has increased by 20,000
to a total of 50,000 families.
"Most of these families are
Oriental Jews," Roumani
said. "This is a regression in
terms of bridging the socio-
. economic gap in Israel."
Pointing out that this
regression occurred during the
recent period of the Likud
government, he said: "For
some of us this is not surpris-
ing. It is common knowledge
that Oriental Jews supported
the Likud and brought it to
power. I think they did so not
so much because they sup-
ported the Likud's economic
ideology, but as a protest vote
against the Labor Party and its
29 years of paternalism and
undermining the Sephardi
heritage while in power."
ACCORDING TO
Roumani, there has been a
change in this regard under the
Likud eovernment. "The
I Likud and Menachem Begin,
' its leader, restored for the
Orientals the image of a tradi-
tional Jew with whom they can
identify." The Likud also
helped the Sephardim in
developing a positive self-
image on the personal level, he
1 observed. He noted that under
the Likud government there
are more Sephardi Jews in the
Knesset and in high govern-
ment positions.
Under the Likud govern-
ment the economic gap
seemed, until recently, to have
been narrowed, Roumani said.
He said that the Oriental Jews
have enjoyed the economic
prosperity in recent years
together with the rest of the
population. "That well being
might have been false but
nevertheless the individual's
economic situation has im-
proved," Roumani said.
This situation, however, has
drastically changed in the last
few months, and the economic
gap has widened, Roumani
said. "I regard the economic
gap although it affects
children's schooling and their
way of life as soluble," he
said, adding: "Recent history
has shown that with resources,
properly channeled, economic
hardship can be alleviated."
HE CONTINUED: "What
is more important, and
becoming pressing, is the
cultural gap in Israel; namely,
what kind of culture we are
going to see in Israel? Is it
going to be a reflection of
Ashkenazi Jews or is it going
to reflect the pluralism of the
Israeli society? Israel is a
country where East can meet
West and South can meet
North. It can be very exciting
to all members of society.
Cultural pluralism is the
answer to the cultural gap in
Israel."
Roumani said that "in-
terestingly enough" the trend
toward pluralism was started
under Labor rule in 1976. In
that year, he recalled, the
Education and Culture
Ministry established the
Center for the Integration of
Oriental Jewish Heritage
which has been subsidizing
since then teaching and
research on the subject in all
universities in Israel.
Roumani said that the
Elvachar Center for Studies in
Sephardi Heritage at Ben
Gurion University started in
1977 with only eight courses
and a handful of students.
Today, he said with obvious
delight, the Center offers 35
courses and has some 600
students, about 12 percent of
the total student population at
the university.

THE NEW YORK TIMES, FRIDAY, JANUARY li. I84
Study Backs Cutting Cholesterol to Curb Heart Disease Risk
y PHILIP M.BOFFF.Y
pMalurkiNivYart n*
WASHINGTON. Jan. 12 Medical
researchers today announced "the flrrt
study to demonstrate conclusively"
that lowering cholesterol levels In the
bloodstream reduced the rate of heart
auscks In a high-risk group of middle
aged men
The scientists had cooperated in a 10-
yeai. $150 million study sponsored by
the Federal Government that used a
potent cholesterol-lowering drug,
chWestyramlne. They said the drug
substantially cut both blood cholesterol
levels and coronary heart disease In
middle-aged men who started out with
very nigh cholesterol levels.
Basil M. Rlfklnd of the National
Heart. Lung, and Blood Institute, who
was project director for the research,
said the study demonstrated "that the
risk of coronary heart disease can be
reduced by lowering blood choles-
terol."
Previous studies associated Ugh
blood choteeterol wttfa caidtevascaiar
disease, and many health groups have
lecommeadxi low hat whether choteeterol ledmtton
could actually reduce heart dleeaee
hed remained an open question
The participating scientists sug-
gested that their findings could have
broad implications. Although this
particular study relied primarily on a
drug to reduce Wood cholesterol, the
scientists said it supported the view
that lowering of cholesterol through
diet would also be beneficial.
At the news conference, the scien-
tists cautioned that they were not urg-
ing vast numbers of Americans to start
taking the drug, which is available by
prescription. Instead, they suggested a
check wtth the doctor to see if Wood

as the first means to reduce chotee-
terol, and drug therapy only where that
seemed medically necessary
Although this study treated only mid-
dle-aged men with very high choles-
terol levels, the scientists suggested
that tens of millions of Americans who
have moderately elevated blood choles-
terol levels, including women and
younger men, could also reduce the
risk of heart attack by lowering their
cholesterol. _______________________
The study was a Utan" wawt
results had been "aanoualy awaited."
said Afitooio M Gotto, Jr., president of
the American Heart Asaoclatkm. a pn-
vaie organisatwo that has tang urged
Americans to raaintain diets aimed at

lowering cnuiesu i at wveis.
George Lundberg, editor of The Jour-
nal of the American Medical Associa-
tion, which will publish two major
papers from the study in its Jan. 20
issue, predicted, "These two articles
will be looked at 25 years from now as
the definitive articles that secured the
cholesterol theory of coronary heart
disease."
Nearly 4.I* Men Studied
The study involved 3,806 men. aged
35 to 58. who had very high blood cho-
lesterol levels: at least 265 units, well
above the average of about 210 for that
age Only about 5 percent ol the men in
North America have cholesterol levels

that high, the institute said
The men in the study had no sign of
heart problems when the study started,
and the trial was designed to see
whether lowering Wood cholesterol
would prevent the later occurrence of a
heart attack.
Half of the men. randomly chosen,
were given the cholesterol-lowering
drug while the other half received a
look-alike placebo Both groups were
also instructed to follow a moderately
restricted diet aimed at lowering cho-
lesterol. The men's health was moni-
tored for seven to 10 years
Both the diet and the drug clearly
lowered chWesterol levels. For a bnef
period when both groups were treated
through diet only, total chWesterol
levels fell 3.5 percent Then, when drug
therapy was introduced, total choles-
terol fell an additional 14 percent in the
group that received it in the first year.
There was only a slight further decline
in the group treated with diet only. The
drug produced an even sharper reduc-
tion in low density lipoprotein choles-
terol, the type particularly associated
with coronary heart disease
Although this drop in cholesterol
levels was less than the scientists had
expected, it produced a significant
drop in coronary heart disease, said
Robert 1 Levy, vice president for
health science at Columbia University,
one of the scientists speaking at the
news conference today at the National
Institutes W Health in Bethesda, Md
The group treated with the drug ex-
perienced only 155 coronary heart
deaths and nonfatal heart attacks, well
below the 1S7 recorded in the compari-
son group. The drug produced a 24 per-
cent reduction in coronary heart deaths
and a 19 percent reduction in nonfatal
heart attacks
As a rule of thumb, the investigators
said, each 1 percent fall in cholesterol
was associated with a 2 percent reduc
tion in the rate of coronary heart dis-
The drug treatment also cut the inci
daoce of angina pactons heart pain
by 20 percent,.* coronary artery by
peas surgery by 21 percent, and of poor
(wart performance after an exercise
test by 25 percent
The soentists said they found no de-
Wlitating side effects from the drug
