he accused Israel of reneging
on its commitments to the
Camp David accords.
"The Israeli government
has reneged on its commit-
ments to the Camp David
accords by denying the Pales-
tinians their right to self-deter-
mination, annexing the Golan
Heights and invading
Lebanon," Ghali said. "Peace
with Israel is frozen .
Israel's responsibility for this
is clear," Ghali said according
to Al Ahram.
ISRAEL AND Egypt have
been in a state of "cold peace"
ever since Cairo recalled its
Ambassador from Israel in
protest against the Israeli
invasion of Lebanon in 1982.
The normalization process
between the two countries has
been virtually suspended as
have been bilateral negotia-
tions on the Taba border
dispute and other issues. The
autonomy talks in which
Israel, Egypt and the U.S.
were engaged have been mori-
bound for nearly two years.
Ghali was quoted as saying
that Egypt would not return its
Ambassador Aviv until Israel
withdrew completely from
Lebanon, ended its settlement-
building activities in the oc-
cupied territories and acted in
a positive manner to advance
the peace process.

Task Force Addresses
Needs Of Single Parent
The Task Force on the
Single Parent Family, a
committee of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County, recently presented its
final report and findings to the
Federation's Community
Planning Committee. Under
the chairmanship of Rabbi
Howard Shapiro, spiritual
leader of Temple Israel in
West Palm Beach, the Task
Force spent the past 12 months
taking an in depth look at the
occurrence and condition of
single parent families in the
Jewish community.
Rabbi Shapiro, in his intro-
duction to the report, states
"Our study taught us many
things: that part of the
problem is one of distance or
time or finances or priorities;
that part of the problem is
inherent in the America of the
1980's ... We hope this
report makes a difference in
the life of our Jewish commu-
Rabbi Howard Shapiro
nity. We hope it brings those
who feel "left out" in. We
hope it allows those Who feel
alone to know the warmth of
our people, our God and
The objectives of the study
were to determine the extent of
single parenthood within the
Jewish community of Palm
Beach County; to determine
the special needs of Jewish
single parents, custodial and
non-custodial, and their
children; to identify those
programs and services pre-
sently offered by the local
Jewish communal agencies
and synagogues; to recom-
mend programs and services
not presently offered by the
local Jewish communal agen-
cies and synagogues, in order
to further meet the needs of
single parent families; and to
raise the consciousness of the
Jewish community as to the
presence of single parent
Questionnaires were
designed by the Task Force
and administered to identified
single parents in the Jewish
community. Following a brief
training workshop. Task
Force members conducted two
telephone interview sessions
with single parents. The in-
formation gathered from the
questionnaire was tabulated
and analyzed. In addition, a
separate questionnaire was
designed and administered to
the directors of the local
Jewish agencies and to several
local synagogues. The in-
formation provided through
these questionnaires outlined
the existing programs and
services currently being of-
fered to single parent families.
As well, it identfied those
areas of needs which were not
being met.
After reviewing all the in-
formation, the Task Force

Israeli Teenagers Spread Message of Good Wild
Assistant News Coordinator
Former Israeli prime
minister Golda Meir was fond
of saying that "Our children
are our most importani
natural resource." Two Israeli
high school students, repre-
senting that country's "most
important natural resource,"
recently visited the West Palm
Beach area as messengers of
good will. They spoke before
several non-Jewish high school
groups to "show the kids of
America what life is like in
Ronit Panner and Adi
Hovav, both 16, were two of
the 74 Israeli teenagers chosen
after stiff competition to
represent their country world-
wide as part of the Youth
Delegation from the Ministry
of Foreign Affairs in Israel.
Ronit was born in Afula,
Israel. Even though she is
thinking of becoming an
operating room nurse, she
currently is concentrating on
the study of languages.
"I am studying Arabic in
school and German at the
^Goethe Institute in Tel Aviy.
Last year I was one of the six
best students that the institute
sent to Germany," Ronit
explained. She also is in-
terested in painting, music and
Adi was born on Moshav
Elkosh, in the Western Galilee
near the border with Lebanon.
"When 1 was two years old my
parents moved to another
Moshav in the same area. I
went to Kindergarten on the
Moshav and after that to the
local elementary school.
Sometimes we went to school
with an army escort because of
the Palestinian terrorists who
came from Lebanon," Adi
Although Adi and other
children in Israel have dif-
ferent experiences than their
American peer group, Adi
feels that Americans have
received a distorted picture
from the media of how Israelis
live. "American kids think
that we are bombed all the
time. Of course, when there is
a war or a terrorist attack you
are tense, but you still have to

and don't always think of
these things."
Through their discussions
with American high school
students, Adi and Ronit
discovered that Israeli
teenagers are more involved in
politics and aware of what's
happening around them.
"Everyone in Israel knows
about Mondale and Hart
because it's important to their
survival," Ronit said.
"American youth, on the
other hand, are more in-

School has had a very exciting
year in every way. We look
forward to this graduation
ceremony with enthusiasm and
a sense of pride in our very
special graduates."
The second half of the
program will be a presentation
by the Midrasha Drama
Department of three one-act
plays entitled, "The World of
Sholom Aleichem." The
drama is written by Arnold
Perl, produced by special
arrangement with the
Dramatist Play Service, Inc.,
New York, NY, and directed
by Cantor Gary D. Kessler,
Midrasha drama instructor.
The first one-act play, "A
Tale of Chelm," is about the
folk humor of people laughing
away their ghetto. Student

ance, Shoshi Chazin, Karen
Kosowski, Amy Prince, Steve
Jacoby, Randy Leipzig, Robin
Kandel, Roneet Weingarten
and Melonie Schonberg. The
drama revolves around a
dream in a heavenly syna-
gogue and concludes with a
strange ending.
The most serious of the
three one-act plays "High

tion to the ghetto and makes
an attempt at change within
the culture. The players in-
clude Mitch Levy, Merrie

Murder, Violence Marked Mengele i Miami m
Special to
The Jewish Floridian
Dr. Josef Mengele, the
Auschwitz "Angel of Death"
and the world's most sought
surviving Nazi, narrowly
escaped walking into an FBI
trap five years ago at Miami
International Airport, a
former federal official says in
an exclusive interview.
Jerome Sanford, a Temple
Beth Am member who served
as an assistant U.S. Attorney
here from 1975 to 1980, has
identified himself as the
federal prosecutor who was
given the super-secret assign-
ment of serving an arrest
warrant from the Federal
Republic of Germany for the
extradition of Dr. Mengele as
he stepped off a plane from
Asuncion, Paraguay, in July,
"The rat escaped the trap,"
says Sanford today. "Hours
before the plane was to land in
Miami, the Justice Depart-
ment in Washington notified
me that Mengele had ap-
parently been tipped off and
wouldn't be aboard. I believe I
would have given a leg to have
been able to serve that
The story of that July night
and of Sanford's violence-
studded efforts since he left
government service to run
Mengele down has never
been told until now. The story
involves at least two Miami
killings over the past year and
a warm, continuing relation-
ship that grew between
Sanford, now a candidate for
Dade County state attorney,
and Tuviah Friedman, an
Israeli who roams the world in
search of Nazi war criminals.
Sanford believes that the
sadistic doctor and Klaus
Barbie, another Nazi war
criminal now standing trial in
France, were both invovled,
separately or together, in the
lucrative illicit drug trade
between South America and
the United States.
JERRY SANFORD: friendly with Tuviah Friedman
Story Involves at Least
Two Miami Killings
A cover story in The Miami
Herald's Tropic Magazine on
January 2, 1983 described in
detail a cartel of former Nazis,
including Barbie, who resorted
to large-scale drug dealings
out of South America after the
collapse of the Third Reich.
As head of the major drug
traffickers prosecution unit in
the U.S. Attorney's office
here, Sanford traveled to
Europe, Central America and
Mexico investigating inter-
national smugglers and terror-
Sanford also had good
reason to hunt Nazis. His
wife's father was killed in
Dachau, but released in 1938.
Her maternal grandmother
was killed in a concentration
camp. She was born in the
United States after the family
fled from Austria.
"I have more than a little
knowledge of the drug trade
situation," Sanford explains.
"As far as I know, I'm also
the only federal prosecutor in
this area who wore a bullet
proof vest and carried a pistol
while working in the streets
with agents of the Drug
Enforcement Adminis-
Sanford has vivid
recollections of the day it all
began in July, 1979.
"On a Friday afternoon, I
got a call from the Justice
Department in Washington,
telling me that I had been
selected to handle a matter of
extreme delicacy. They told
me it involved the arrest of a
foreign citizen who would be
arriving in Miami, but they
refused to give me a name.
They told me to tell no one
not even my boss about this
Sanford said he was told he
would be contacted that same
evening by FBI agents
assigned to the case. The
Washington official ordered
Sanford to obtain an
agreement from a federal
judge to remain available on
call for the entire night.

and got his agreement to
remain available," Sanford
recalls. "I had been planning
to take my wife out to dinner
that night, but instead I
decided to stay home with my
wife and some friends."
The phone rang about 8
p.m., and it was the FBI. They
told Sanford they were on
their way over with the top-
secret documents.
"The two agents got there
about 9 p.m., and the three of
us went into my kitchen,
leaving r.iy wife and the other
couple in the living room. One
of them opened a briefcase
and handed me a document.
For some reason, I thougt it
might be a warrant for Robert
Vesco or some other inter-
national criminal case.
"So when the first words I
saw were 'Federal Republic of
Germany' at the top of the
document, it kind of threw
me," Sanford said. "I read
the rest of the document to
make sure it was in the proper
order as a provisional arrest
warrant. The legal language
was in English. "Then I got to
the point where it said, 'We
are requesting the provisional
arrest of Dr. Joseph Men-
gele .'
"I saw that name, and the
chills went down my back, and
it practically stood my hair on
end. I looked in astonishment
at the nearest FBI agent. He
kind of smiled, nodded and
said 'Yeah, it's the real
thing.' "
Sanford said the document
claimed that Mengele was due
to arrive on a National
Airlines flight about 3 a.m.
that night.
"There was no passport
number or photo, so I asked
the agents how they would be
able to identify him," Sanford
said. "They assured me
there'd be no problem with

New Improved
Heart Valve
A group of Israeli and U.S.
scientists will soon begin
clinical testing of a new
prosthetic heart valve which its
developers believe will be safer
and longer-lasting than those
currently in use.
The valve was designed by a
U.S. team led by Dr. David
Lederman. w ith the support of
the National Institutes of
Health, and will be
manufactured in Israel by
Omikron Scientific of
The Israeli research group is
headed b> Prof. Bernardo
Vidne of rel Am University's
Sacklcr School of Medicine
and the Tel Aviv Medical
Center's Department of
Cardiovascular Surgery, and
Dr. Shmuel Einav, of the TAU
Faculty of Engineering.
The new valve is very similar
to the human heart valve, with
no mechanical moving parts,
and is made from a new
material based on polyetheu-
rurethane. The durability of
this substance will be the key
to the success of the new valve,
according to Prof. Vidne.
"The actual design is not
new it is the oldest one that
exists, having been in the
human body for around one
million years," he said. The
new material permits use of
this natural design, which is
expected to eliminate the
problems inherent in valves
available today.
Two types of valves are
currently in use in heart
surgery prosthetic valves of
steel and plastic, and biologic
valves, made from pig valves.
Both have major disad-
vantages: the prosthetic valve,
while it has unlimited life
expectancy, can cause
thromboembolism. To avoid
this, patients must take anti-
coagulant medication, which
often causes bleeding in
pregnant or elderly patients.
Biologic valves avoid the
problem of thromboem-
bolism, but they have a limited
life expectancy due to
The children of the Jewish Community Center's KerenOrr
Pre School are shown being led by Rabbi Steven Westmu
of Temple Beth Torah at their model Seder held on April
13 at the Center. The children's parents helped prepiretke
food for this special Holiday event.
Registration is now going on for the Jewish Community
Center's Summer Programs. A special program has been
designed for each different age group.
At the Jewish Community facility, parents and toddlers
will enjoy their time together. Camp Shoresh, a half day
program for 2'/:-4 year olds, will have a unique experience
with a limited amount of youngsters.
At Camp Shalom (Belvedere Rd., one mile west of the
Turnpike), pre-schoolers through 10th graders can select
from the many different group experiences available to
them such as: Kton Ton and Maccabee for the pre-
schoolers through 2nd grade; Sabra, 3rd through 6th
graders. This year there will be selectives every two weeks
to enrich this group: Computer Sports Camp, a com-
bination of the working of computers and sports; Teen
Travel, 7th to 9th graders will get to visit the Smokey
Mountains and the World's Fair in New Orleans in ad-
dition to daily trips of interest.

Hanna is 78, but the

Hanna's romances are more
exciting than a soap opera,
and I share her adventures.
She has had dates with an
elderly rabbi from B'nai B'rak
("but he just wanted a nurse,"
she complained indignantly).
She went out with a pensioner
who had repaired her tele-
vision set ("I don't think he
would be intellectually stim-
ulating"). She spoke to a
young man who answered her
advertisement saying he liked
older women ("probably just
after my money"). Yet Hanna
is still hopeful: "Somewhere
in Israel there's a gentleman as
lonely as I am."
I met Hanna boarding a bus
to Tel Aviv during a late
winter snow, when Jerusalem
was hushed and white like a
beautiful bride. Like everyone
else, I was hurrying home,
eager for a hot drink and the
sight of the city's beauty
through the window of a warm
room. But Hanna, in a color-
ful coat, pretty lilac scarf and
hat at a jaunty angle, was off
to meet another "possibility."
She waved gaily through the
window, after boarding.
They say if you live in Israel
and don't believe in miracles,
then you are not a realist.
Hanna wants to make her own
miracle a reality. To me she
embodies the contemporary
Israeli's determination to live
for the future, not in the past.

"It was the first time I've
ever seen Morales shaken,
considering everything he'd
been through," Sanford
recalls. "He kind of slumped
in his chair, wiped his brow
and said; 'Mengele! You don't
know what you're asking.
Now you're really playing in
dangerous territory.'
"I knew Morales had been
in dangerous territory before,
and so had I," Sanford said.
"But apparently he felt this
was a completely different
game. But he said the Israelis
had been good to him, and he
agreed to help. Not surprising-
ly, his offer came after I told
him he would be well-
rewarded for any solid in-
formation he brought us."
It was on a Monday in
December of 1982 that he
agreed to help. A week later he
was shot to death in a lounge
on Key Biscayne. The other
party claimed self-defense and
was freed.
"And the former

Task Force Addresses Needs of Single Parent
Continued from Page 2
identified several areas of
unmet needs as it relates to
single Jewish parents and their
children, and presented a
series of recommendations to
the Jewish Federation. The
following represent those
areas of unmet needs and ways
in which they could be ad-
dressed by the community.
I. Unmet Neecfc
An increased understanding
and sensitivity to the needs of
single parent families at all
levels of the community.
Utilization of Federation
and its agencies, through staff
and volunteers, to develop
heightened community-wide
understanding and sensitivity
to the needs of the single
parent family.
Request agencies to
evaluate their current and
future programs, personnel
assignments and priorities in
order to better serve the needs
of single parent families.
Include in religious
education curriculum the
issue of single parent family
with special emphasis on
Jewish ritual as it relates to
divorce or death of a parent or
Assist synagogues and their
leadership to recognize those
programs which have the
effect of excluding single
parent families in the life of
the synagogue. The intent
would result in the creation of
policies and practices which
would enable single parent
families to participate in all
aspects of congregational life.
Develop membership in-
formation forms to be utilized
by agencies and synagogues in
order to achieve greater statis-
tical information about the
presence of single parent
2. Unmet Need:
Posithe Jewish social-
education-supportive setting
to assist single parents in
Creation of attractive
programs in the organized
Jewish community to assist
single parents in meeting one
Review of successful
programs for single parents in
non-Jewish setting to serve as
models for replication by the
Jewish community.
3. Unmet Need:
Expanded day care and
babysitting services for
children of single parent
Creation of new day care
services in unserved neigh-
Consideration by Federa-
tion and-or its agencies for the
daycare fee of pre-school
children ol families (both one
and two parents) in financial
4. Unmet Need:
Involve Jewish volunteers to
serve as role models for
children of single parent
Greater" involvement and
input by the Jewish commu-
nity and individual volunteers
in the existing agencies which
serve as role model programs
for children of single parent
Establishment of a Jewish
role model program in the
community (Should the
numbers warrant the need).
5. Unmet Need:
Positive role models to
assist recently widowed or
divorced during adjustment
Establishment of a group
of trained volunteers consist-
ing of people who have
successfully adapted to a
single parent life style of their
own, to serve as role models
and discussion leaders.
6. Unmet Need:
For agencies to work
cooperatively and coordinate
their efforts in meeting needs
of single parent families.
Regular joint meetings of
those agencies serving the
single parent population for
purpose of discussing and
resolving issues of common
7. Unmet Need:
Permanent group or
committee to deal with the
concerns of single parent
Establishment by Federa-
tion of a standing sub-
committee of the Community
Planning Committee to deal
with the on-going concerns of
single parent families in the
The Community Planning
Committee at its April
meeting, recommended that a
Standing Committee of
Federation be established to
continue addressing the issues
of the single parent family in
the Jewish community and to
monitor programs and services
offered now and in the future
to this segment of the popula-
tion. It also recommended that
a full-time, year round profes-
sional staff person be hired b\
the Jewish Community Center
to oversee the singles program.
Such a professional would not
only be well qualified, but
sensitive to and experienced
with single parent families.
Lastly, a recommendation was
made that the Federation set
aside funds for programs and
services which would meet anv
one, or a combination of,
unmet needs as identified by
the Task Force Study. Bcne- Arlene Gordon

Role of JCCs As Jewish Educational
Agency Highlighted in Study
Jewish Community Centers
(JCC) are part of a Jewish
educational network, they
"are distinctive because they
have the ability to appeal to all
segments of the Jewish com-
"They are able to stimulate
many people who initially
come for a specific program to
become more involved in the
center's Jewish activities and
thus broaden their under-
standing and commitment to
the Jewish community.
"Increasingly, many people
who are unaffiliated with
other Jewish organizations
come to JCCs to participate in
Jewish education programs
such as Jewish holiday work-
shops, Jewish educational
forums, and the like."
These are among the fin-
dings of an intensive study
which has involved hundreds
of leaders of JCCs, Jewish
Federations, Jewish education
bodies and the rabbinate in 32
communities throughout
North America, JWB and
other national Jewish organ-
Morton Mandel, of
Cleveland, chairman of the
JWB Commission on Maxim-
izing the Jewish Educational
Effectiveness of Jewish
Community Centers, will
present the findings and
potential implications of the
Commission study at a plenary
sesion tomorrow of the JWB
biennial convention at the
Sheraton Boston. Arthur
Rotman, JWB executive vice
president, was study director.
"There is a high correla-
tion," the findings state,
"between the existence of rich
Jewish educational program-
ming in the center and .
those center leaders affiliated
with synagogues who give to
their local Federation cam-
paigns and who are deter-
mined that their centers should
have such Jewish educational
A high correlation was also
discovered between effective
Jewish educational program-
ming in the JCCs and Jewishly
knowledgeable and committed
executives and staff members;
fiscally sound centers; a warm
Jewish ambiance in the JCCs,
and their "ability to stimulate
the desire for Jewish learning,
skill in increasing the level of
Jewish involvement of indi-
viduals and groups, and skill
in creating Jewish educational
initiatives to meet the needs of
Jews to grow Jewishly."
In summing up the findings,
Mandel concluded: "Socio-
logists looking for the factors
eroding Jewish life in North
America have pointed to such
things as the weakening of the
family and the decline of the
dense Jewish neighborhood.
"The Jewish Community
Center is uniquely positioned
to strengthen the Jewish
family and to be one of the
new equivalents of the old
Jewish neighborhood. The
center, by maximizing its
Jewish educational potential,
can be a major force in the
enhancement of Jewish life in
North America."

He predicted this "peace

other round of wishful

Jordan "by advisors and

Secondly, Dine stressed,
"We have to ensure that

1985, will return to the real
peace process, the Camp

about Arab intentions but
rather on a clear under-
standing that it is the Arabs
who must first show a willing-
ness to make peace before the
United States and Israel can be
expected to respond."
Dine said Arab states should
not receive arms from the U.S.
"until and unless they agree to
make peace with Israel." He
said the world must be "made

Israel Is In Direct Contact With
Syria For A New Exchange
rael is in the opening stage of
indirect contacts with Syria for
a prisoner-of-war exchange.
Defense Minister Moshe Arens
disclosed in a radio interview.
He said the contacts were es-
tablished through the Inter-
national Red Cross.
"We have the beginning of
contacts to reach a prisoner
exchange and we hope we will

be able to finalize this," Arens
said. "We have ihe impression
that there is a general
readiness on their (Syrian)
side." He did not say whether
a POW exchange would be
confined to Syria or include
the Syrian-backed Palestine
Liberation Organization
dissident groups.
THE SYRIANS hold three
Israeli soldiers captured in
Lebanon who would
presumably be exchanged for
290 Syrian soldiers held by
Israel. Four more Israeli
soldiers are prisoners of PLO
dissidents, and six Israeli
soldiers are still listed as
missing in Lebanon. There arc
presently about 2,700 Arabs in
Israeli prisons convicted of
terrorist acts or other security
On another matter, Arens
said he had no reason to
disbelieve the army's claim
that all four terrorists in the
April 12 bus hijack were killed
or fatally wounded when
troops stormed the vehicle to
release its passengers who were
being held hostage. According
to some media reports, one of
the terrorists was seen being
led away from the bus by
plainclothes Israeli security
men, apparently unharmed at
ihe time. All four terrorists
were buried on April 15.

Lag B'Omer
Special to The Floridian
Lag b'Omer, youngest of
the Jewish festivals, arrives
well in the spring, on the 18th
day of the month of Iyar
(Sunday, May 20). Like many
Jewish holidays, it tells of the
Jewish people's fight for free-
dom against the dark forces of
Lag b'Omer is a happy day,
a day for weddings and for
picnics and for outdoor sport.
The name of the holiday
means the 33rd day of the
'Omer,' which was a unit the
Palestinian farmers used for
measuring their grain. The
days between Passover and
Shavuot were known to our
former ancestors as omer days
for this was the time when the
Jews gathered their harvest.
They are also known as
'Senrah,' or counting days.
Having no calendar to guide
them, the Jews counted the
days from Passover to
Shavuot to know when to cele-
brate the end of the harvest
The days between Passover
and Shavuot are a solemn
period on the Jewish calendar.
They recall the suffering which
the Jews endured under
Roman persecution. No
joyous celebrations, like
weddings and parties, are held
during the 'Sefirah' days, but
Lag b'Omer comes to break
the period of semi-mourning.
Lag b'Omer is the one joyous
day of the 'Sefirah' days.
According to folklore, Bar
Kochba won a great victory
against the Romans on the
33rd of the omer days. An-
other story tells that a plague
which was raging among
Rabbi Akiba's students
suddenly stopped on that day.
For this reason. Lag b'Omer is
also called the scholar's holi-
Lag b'Omer is also the
anniversary of the death of
Rabbi Simeon ben Yohai, said
to be the most outstanding of
the pupils of Rabbi Akiba. A
great scholar, he had fled to
the hills to continue his study
of the Torah, and students
would often go see him in his
palce of hiding. In Israel, stu-
dents make pilgrimages to
Meron, where he was buried.
And on Lag b'Omer, as he
commanded, they lay aside
their grief and rejoice
The idea of celebrating Lag
b'Omer with a bonfire has
spread throughout Israel.
Around the burning flames,
stories are told about Bar
Kochba, Rabbi Akiba, Ben
Yohai men who defied
tyranny and carried forward
the torch of Israel's hopes.
