Under the coalition agree-
ment, Shamir will replace
Peres as Premier, and Peres
will replace Shamir as Deputy
Premier and Foreign Minister,
25 months into the Knesset
term.
In a brief and businesslike
presentation speech, Peres
listed the economy and
Lebanon as the two top
priority items on the new
government's agenda. What
was needed on the former, he
declared, was "immediate and
energetic action." And he
predicted that with steady
effort, Israel could take its
place in the forefront of the
world's nations in the fields of
science, technology, agri-
culture and industry.
Peres pledged the govern-
ment would ensure the security
of the northern border villages
in its quest to end the Lebanon
involvement. And he stressed
the constant need to preserve
and expand the strength of the

to join in talks with
Premier Peres
Israeli Defense Force as Isra-
el's prime guarantee of peace
and security.
HIS NEXT target, Peres
said, was to expand the peace
process. He called on all Isra-
el's neighbors to enter peace
negotiations, and addressed a
special call to King Hussein of
Jordan, "at this special
Carefully rehearsing the
delicate wording of the
government's policy-platform
(the wording was subject to
intense negotiation), Peres
called on Jordan to come to
the negotiating table where, he
said, it could put forward any
proposals and the new
government would consider
them carefully. By the same
token, he added, Jordan
would be asked to listen to and
consider proposals put for-
ward by Israel.
Peres did not refer to the
Camp David process in this
context. He did, however,
mention Camp David in the
context of Egypt, calling on
that country to return its long-
absent ambassador and to help
develop the peace treaty with
Israel into "a step towards"
much broader and deeper
regional cooperation.
IN A REFERENCE to the
Soviet Union, Peres read out a
moving cable received by
President Chaim Herzog and
the Knesset from a group of
Jews in Moscow, Leningrad,
Riga and Odessa urging Israel
to act in their behalf and help
them realize their goal of
aliya. "Our answer is: your
destiny is our destiny ... we
shall never forget," Peres
declared.
He urged Moscow to re-
establish diplomatic ties with
Israel, "ties severed at a time
of anger." He added that Isra-
el would "continue knocking
on the closed door of China."
But the main focus of the
country's preoccupations and
the new government's efforts,
Peres said, was the home
front. He dwelt on the need to
shore up democracy and the
rule of law, and spoke of
tolerance as a social value that
it was vital to enhance. The

JERUSALEM Yehuda
Dominitz, director-general of
the Jewish Agency's Immigra-
tion and Absorption Depart-
ment, says it is difficult for
Ethiopian Jews to adjust to
Israeli life, "But their absorp-
tion is necessary for them as
well as for us to avoid the need
for another Project Renewal
in 10 to 15 years.
"You can't plan too far in
advance," Dominitz said on
the eve of the historic first Na-
tional Conference in Israel of
the United Jewish Appeal-
Community Campaign. "We
don't know how many
Ethiopian Jews are coming, or
when, or their state of health.
And there are constant sur-
prises."
The one certainty, he said, is
that the challenge is for-
midable to help these Jews,
who are black and have been
recognized by Israel's Chief
Rabbis as Jewish, to adjust to
a complex modern world after
life in a primitive society.
More than 5,000 are said to
have arrived, many with
problems such as dehydration
and malnutrition that are ad-
dressed immediately.
Dominitz said these Jews
must not only learn Hebrew,
marketable skills and how to
negotiate bureaucracies, but
also adjust to the shock of a
new culture that includes air-
planes, automobiles and
indoor plumbing.
His department has been
surprised, he noted, by the
number of these immigrants
who are children unaccom-
panied by parents.
"We have been geared to
immigrant families by having
kitchen facilities for them," he
said. "Instead, we have been
receiving frightened children,
arriving without grown-ups."
Five absorption centers have
been set aside for these young-
sters, to meet their special
needs and provide more inten-
sive education.
Many teenagers, he notes,
have moved along to resi-
dences of Youth Aliya, which,
like the Immigration and
Absorption Department, is
funded mainly through con-
tributions by American Jews
to UJA-Community cam-
paigns.

Jewish Women's Assembly
Roth and Levy Announced
As Workshop Session Speakers
Deborah Brass and Esther
Szmukler, co-chairwomen of
the Jewish Women's Assembly
sponsored by the Women's
Division of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Palm Beach County,
have announced that Dora
Roth, Holocaust survivor,
Israeli mother and UJA repre-
sentative, and Leslie L. Levy,
congressional liaison for the
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee (AIPAC). will
speak at the sixth annual com-
munity-wide education event
in addition to keynote speaker
Bella Abzug. The Jewish
Women's Assembly will be
held this year on Sunday, Oct.
28, 9:45 a.m.-2:30 p.m. at the
Hyatt Palm Beaches, West
Palm Beach.
Women who attend the
Assembly will be able to
choose between two workshop
sessions. Mrs. Roth will speak
about "Israeli Mothers:
Soldiers of Sacrifice," and
Ms. Levy will address "The
Power of the Jewish Voice."
This year the length of the As-
sembly has been shortened
with workshop sessions begin-
ning directly after registration.
"Due to the exciting program
which we have planned for the
Jewish Women's Assembly,
we encourage everyone to
register as early as possible as
there is limited seating
capacity in each session," the
chairwomen urged.
"Both of our session speak-
ers will eloquently encourage
Jewish women to acknowledge
their impact. Mrs. Roth brings
the spirit and determination of
Israeli women to our forum
while Ms. Levy will share with
us an activist's inside view of
Washington-Israel relations.
We are fortunate to have two
such dynamic and knowledge-
able Jewish women speak in
our community," stated Mrs.
Brass and Mrs. Szmukler.
Mrs. Roth was born in
Poland to a very Zionistic
family. When she was eight
she was confined with her
family in a ghetto until it was
destroyed in 1942. She was
then sent to a concentration
camp where her mother soon
died of hunger. On the day of
liberation, Mrs. Roth was shot
in the back by the Germans
and was hospitalized in an
American Joint Distribution
Committee hospital for
survivors in Italy for two and a
half years.
Afterwards she studied to
become a registered nurse and
made aliyah to Israel in 1952
where she married a doctor
and had two children.
Widowed after 26 years of
marriage, Mrs. Roth then
studied public relations at the
University of Haifa and for
the past five years has been a
liaison between depressed Is-
raeli neighborhoods and
American communities for
Project Renewal. She has also
raised funds for the Associa-
tion of Soldiers' Welfare
which teaches illiterate soldiers
to read and write.
As congressional liaison for
AIPAC. Ms. Levy monitors
congressional activity relating
to U.S.-Israel relations. Ms.
Levy, a registered lobbyist,
has been a member of the
AIPAC legislative staff since
1980 and contributed a
column to a weekly newsletter.
The Near East Report.
Prior to joining AIPAC,
Ms. Levy worked on the staff
of Congressman John
Breckinridge (D-KY) and was
active on the local political
scene in her home state of
Kentucky. She holds a
bachelor's degree from Miami
University of Ohio in diplom-
acy and foreign affairs. Ms.
Levy also spent a year in
Luxembourg studying Euro-
pean politics during which
time she worked extensively
with the Soviet Jewry move-
ment in Europe.
Registration for the Jewish
Women's Assembly closes on
Friday, Oct. 19. Space is
limited. The $22 registration
fee includes morning coffee,
danish and luncheon. Child-
care will be available at a
nominal fee. For more in-

Students gather outside and inside the Jewish Community Day

opportunity to socialize with friends is one ingredient which

id, "It is exhilarating to

cipating the most successful
year ever. Fifteen seniors will
graduate this year after having
participated in the four-year
program and we anticipate a
large number of students will
apply for scholarships to go to
Israel next summer."
"Shabbat Shalom," a film
concerning a mother's desire
to have a truly meaningful
family Shabbat and the nega-
tive reaction of her family to
this decision, was shown in the
merkaz of the Day School.
Afterwards the students
divided into small groups and
discussed the film in class-
rooms. This trigger film is
designed to encourage dis-
cussion.
Registration showed that
among the most popular
courses are Eretz Yisroel, You
are Jewish and Special (a
Jewish values course), con-
versational Hebrew, compar-
ative religions and Holocaust
studies. "In some cases we had
to create an additional class of
the same subject due to the

ment," stated Ms. Lipton.
Starting Oct. 24 adult
education courses for teachers
and parents will be held during
the same hours as Midrasha.

IS political parties in addition
to the Labor and Likud
coalitions have representation

Israel has got to understand
that they are no longer a small
country of 250,000 people but
a mature country with a
population of 4 million. The
system must change to more of
an American type with two
parties and people voting for
individuals, not the party.
"I am extremely optimistic
now. I have begun to realize
that a unity government can
accomplish more without
having to deal with criticism
from the 'out' party. The
leaders are working hard to
make this work because they
realize that there will be
another election in six months

J. Nlckman,

If the form of government that
the Likud and Labor
coalitions have agreed to has a
chance to be successful, and I
sincerely hope it will be, it can
only happen in Israel, the Jew-
ish homeland for the family of
Jews."
Rabbi Joel Chazin, presi-
dent of the
Palm Beach
County Board
of Rabbis,
believes that
"all Jews are
supportive and
hopeful of the
effort to sustain
a unity govern-
ment wich
includes both
Shimon Peres and
Yitzhak Shamir. I think we're
aware that both leaders have
made sacrifices and the fact
that they succeeded in forming
a unity government testifies to
the depth and character of
both men. The expectation is
that they will make progress in
the economic area while
continuing and improving
relations with the United
States. There is only good
news in the ability of Labor
and Likud to cooperate.

Heritage: Civilization and
The Jews Premieres On Channel 2
Oct. 1, 9 p.m. is the
premiere date of the nine-part
epic series Heritage: Civiliza-
tion And The Jews on WPBT-
Channel2.
This presentation
chronicling three thousand
years of Jewish history is
hosted and narrated by Abba
Eban, the former Israeli
Ambassador to the United
States and the United Nations.
This sweeping documentary
series is the historical journey
of the Jewish people which
begins with the Greek and
Roman Empires and con-
cludes with the birth of Israel
and the world today. From the
stony heights of the Sinai to
the shores of the Dead Sea,
from the Amphitheatre at
Delphi to the Roman Forum,
from the ghettos of Germany
and Poland to the kibbutzim
of Israel, the series traces the
evolution of Jewish thought,
insights and culture.
In telling the story of the
Jewish people and their
relationships with the other
religious and secular traditions
that have formed Western
civilization, Heritage: Civil-
ization And The Jews tells the
story of all of us.
Part two of Heritage:
Civilization And The Jews airs
Tuesday, Oct. 2, 9 p.m. The
remainder of the series airs on
consecutive Monday nights at
9p.m.

Sylvia Lewis, a participant in the Volunteers for Israel program
during this past summer, helps paint the barracks where she
stayed.
Naturally, my two room-
mates, aged 21 and cousins,
were very popular and had lots
of admirers. We were able to
communicate to the soldiers
our reasons for coming to Is-
rael to help and how we felt as
Jews in the Diaspora. In turn,
they expressed their ap-
preciation to us and how they
wished we would make
Aliyah.
The emotional appeal of Is-
rael was even more moving to
me this time than on my
previous visit in 1982. Living
for two days with an orthodox
family on a moshav; listening
to their reminiscences about
their 19-year-old son killed in
the Yom Kippur War, and
joining with them in their
hopes for a future Israel living
in peace, brought tears to my
eyes.
Two days spent on a non-
observant kibbutz gave me
another viewpoint. Playing
with the children; listening to
their parents discuss the
Sylvia Lewis (center] and her two roommates, 21-year-old
cousins, outside their living quarters on an army base one hour
from Jerusalem.
There was a break at 10:30
a.m. and everyone collapsed
under the one big shade tree
on the base. Some of the
group had planted shrubs and
flowers to brighten the area,
which they would water and
weed. Back to work until
12:30 p.m. when the main
meal of the day was served.
Afterwards, we worked until
4:30 or 5 p.m.
Up the hill to the mess hall
for supper and then free time!
Most of us would take the bus
into Rehovet and gorge on
felafel, cold Gold Star beer,
ice cream and other delicacies.
Back to the base where we
literally fell onto our cots.
Truthfully, 1 have not slept as
well in a longtime as I did in
the Army!
We really looked forward to
the Shabbat! At noon on
Friday we finished our 5 Vi day
work week of eight hours daily
(more or less) and packed for
the weekend ... one time at a
kibbutz; another on a moshav
and twice in Jerusalem where I
stayed at the YMCA across
from the King David Hotel.
Eight a.m. Sunday came
quickly and back to the base
for work.
Side trips, all courtesy of the
Israeli army, included
Masada, Tel Aviv, Jaffa,
Jerusalem, Absolam Caves, a
delightful reception for the
volunteers hosted by the local
B'nai B'rith in Rehovet, plus
other tours. We also had
lectures and films at the camp.
A marvelous camaraderie
sprang up between the
volunteers and the soldiers.

Before Unity
It Was A Night of Frenzied Deals
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA)
"Split it between you," a
bleary-eyed cameraman told
Shimon Peres, Yitzhak Navon
and Haim Barlev at 4 a.m. as
he plonked down in front of
them a can of Coca-Cola.
The three Labor leaders,
gratefully and without over-
much attention to protocol
requirements, eagerly swilled
back the beverage, lubricating
their parched throats and
keeping them conscious for yet
another gruelling hour of pre-
dawn negotiations.
The cameraman's mate off-
ered them a hunk of bagel, still
warm from an Old City
baker's van. Greedily they
gobbled it up.
AFTER ALL, the Knesset
restaurants had all closed long
hours ago. But they and their
aides were still buried in the
bowels of the house, beavering
away toward the so-elusive
goal: wrapping up the coali-
tion accord.
On the floor above, unat-
tended by media people, Yit-
zhak Shamir and his aides
were no doubt in similarly
hungry and thirsty condition
and similarly teetering on
the verge of physical
exhaustion.
The wheeling and dealing
and horse-trading was at last
coming to an end: the final,
unchangeable deadline had
been set Thursday after-
noon, Sept. 13. Labor had
given notice, with National
Religious Party support, that
if it could not announce a
unity government by then it
would present to the Knesset a
narrow-based one and squeak
home with the votes of the
Communists.
Peres and his aides were
awaiting Shamir's visit to
them, from the fourth floor to
the fifth, in order to hand him
a copy of the formal letter
Peres proposed sending Presi-
dent Chaim Herzog informing
the president that a govern-
ment had been formed. Once
Shamir took formal note of
that letter it would be all
over.
"WHERE IS he?" Peres
asked, too tired, and too
schooled in delays and disap-
pointments to be impatient.
"He's still stuck with the Shas
guys." someone answered.
"They've gone to say
selichot" (predawn prayers),
someone else volunteered.
And indeed, the Shas rabbi-
politicians had taken over a
committee room and were
offering penitential prayers in
between drafting sessions with
their Likud patrons over
complex compromise for-
mulae in the matter of the
Religious Affairs portfolio.
Earlier in the evening, the
NRP Executive met in the
Knesset and decided to accept
a Labor proposal whereby
both Religions and Interior
NRP's two "traditional"
portfolios be "deposited"
with the Premier for the time
being, "until a solution is
worked out."
If Likud and Shas rejected
that, the NRP warned, there
would be a Labor-led narrow
government with NRP
participation the next day.
FACED WITH that kind of
threat, Shamir had little choice
but to climb down. He met
with Peres and the two of
them called in Shas' Yitzhak
Peretz (by now it was well past
1 a.m.) to cajole him into
swallowing the medicine, too.
The Shas politicians were
mortified. "We are being
made fools of," they railed.
The two ministries were run by
NRP-affiliated directors-
general, and, deposited with
Peres, they would continue in
effect, therefore, to be con-
trolled by the NRP.
But Shamir was adamant.
Likud and Labor were going
ahead, he made it clear, with
or without Shas. "He's
(Shamir) not the whole of the
Likud," a Shas MK noted
forcefully to reporters a
clear reference to Shas'
particular patron, Ariel
Sharon.
And indeed, in a last-minute
turnabout engineered by
Sharon, Shas decided to join
the government after all and
accept the "deposit" scheme.
Peretz told reporters Sharon
has specifically undertaken
that Shas would eventually re-
ceive one or other of the two
disputed ministries.
BE THAT as it may, the
unity Cabinet has 25 members
Shas' entry was followed by
that of Morasha an un-
wieldy number even in an
optimal situation of political
homogeneity which this
certainly is not.
Peres and Shamir are aware
of the problem, however, and
have built into their agreement
a scheme that could, if it
works, be a solution.
It calls for an inner Cabinet
of 10 members five Labor
and five Likud where key
issues will be brought for
decision. These decisions will
"bind Labor and Likud"
thus ensuring their endorse-
ment in the Cabinet plenary.
But observers believe that
even the 10-member forum,
which will also serve as the
Ministerial Defense Commit-
tee, may prove unwieldy. They
expect, therefore if the
unity government indeed takes
hold the informal evolution
of a still smaller forum, com-
prising Peres and Shamir and
just a very few others, remini-
scent of Golda Meir's
"Kitchen Cabinet."
PRESUMABLY, Sharon
would not be part of such a
body. The question is,
however, whether he would be
prepared to countenance its
existence without his partic-
ipation in it and whether
Shamir is strong enough to
resist Sharon's efforts to
undermine it.
No doubt, as the unity
government is launched on its
way, the problem of Sharon's
open challenge to Shamir is
one of the most salient
shadows threatening its longe-
vity and efficiency. Sharon's
challenge to Shamir was
dramatically in evidence when
he opposed Shamir's recom-
mended slate of Herut
ministers in the unity govern-
ment during a stormy meeting
of the Herut Central Commit-
tee. The slate was approved
nevertheless.
Neo-Nazis Bared
From Marching
BONN (JTA) The
Western Allied powers in West
Berlin have issued an order
barring the neo-Nazi National
Democratic Party (NPD) from
taking part in the March 10,
1985, elections to the city's
Parliament. The NPD is
banned in Berlin but has
nevertheless a following
estimated at several thousand
people.
The Allied command order
is meant to head off a possible
NPD initiative to try to gain
seats in the local Parliament.
Elsewhere in West Germany
the NPD is not barred from
participation in election cam-
paigns.
On the national level it
failed to win the five percent
of the popular vote necessary
to qualify it for a represen-
tation in the Bundestag. On
the local level, however, it did
manage to penetrate into some
elected Assemblies.

Genocide Pact
Helms Debate Angers Sen. Percy
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA)
- The Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee approved the
United Nations convention
against genocide at its regular
meeting Wednesday.
But there was some question
whether the Senate would be
able to ratify the treaty before
Congress adjourns Oct. 5.
Sen. Jesse Helms (R., N.C.),
who has used his prerogative
to delay the vote, might
threaten a filibuster if the
convention were brought to
the floor.
Elliott Abrams, Assistant
Secretary of State for Human
Rights and Humanitarian
Affairs, who urged the com-
mittee to approve the conven-
tion, said that the Reagan
Administration would not
insist that the treaty be
brought to the floor if it faced
a filibuster that "might make
impossible to do other
important business."
WHEN Sen. Charles Percy
I*-. III.) the committee's
chairman, sought to get a vote
' week, Helms accused him
[*' 'mng to "railroad" the
rty through without
considering two riders that
Helms offered. Percy angrily
2llcd that 35 years of
Snng,S "cannot bc called

conservatives, opposes the

convention."
ABRAMS STRESSED that
the United States, "one of the
chief recipients of the sur-
vivors of the Holocaust, has
found itself in the embar-
rassing position in the interna-
tional forum of having failed
to ratify the convention,
thereby not expressing for-
mally through an international
treaty our staunch opposition
to the heinous crime of
genocide."
The Convention of the
Prevention and Punishment of
the Crime of Genocide was
signed by President Truman
on December 11, 1948.
Although approved by 96
other countries, and endorsed
by every president since
Truman except for
Eisenhower, the Senate has
failed to ratify the convention,
largely because of conservative
opposition.
It was this opposition that
was apparently the reason for
President Reagan's long
silence on the convention. But
on the eve of Reagan's address
to the B'nai B'rith Interna-
tional convention here, the
Administration announced for
ratification, and Reagan
reiterated the endorsement to
B'nai B'rith which, like other
American Jewish groups, has
long advocated ratification.

Intense Battle
Religious Portfolio Struggle Nearly Stalled Unity
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA)
An intense conflict over the
religious affairs portfolio in
the new government prevented
Premier-designate Shimon
Peres from presenting his na-
tional unity government to the
Knesset last week on Wednes-
day, as had been scheduled.
The 11th hour setback created
the possibility that a narrow-
based government would have
to be established after all.
This development followed
an entire night of backroom
interparty negotiations in-
volving Labor, Likud and the
two religious parties, Shas and
the National Religious Party.
Both of the religious parties,
NRP with four Knesset seats
and Shas with four seats, insist
that for them the religious
portfolio is "ultimate." The
problem was that Labor
pledged its support to the NRP
on this issue while Likud
especially Ariel Sharon
pledged its support to Shas.
THE DRAMA came to a
head during the night when
Yosef Burg of the NRP in-
formed Peres that his party
would be prepared to join a
narrow-based government if
Likud adhered to its position
on the religious post. The
NRP has traditionally held the
Religious Affairs Ministry.
Shas, a recently formed right-
wing religious party, claimed
that it should have that port-
folio because it lacks parlia-
mentary experience to hold
any other post.
The dramatic turnabout in
events followed Sharon's stern
declaration on television that
Likud must stick to its
commitment to Shas even if
this delayed the creation of a
unity government. Sharon also
insisted that a delay was neces-
sary, citing unresolved
disputes with Labor over
Jewish settlements in the
administered terrtories and
over peace terms for talks with
Jordan.
Political observers saw
Sharon's insistent loyalty to
Shas as another attempt by the
controversial former Defense
Minister to weaken Shamir,
with a view toward ultimately
winning the leadership' of
Herut. This view was given
credence, following Sharon's;
opposition and that of Deputy
Premier David Levy, to
Shamir's recommended slate
of Herut ministers in the unity
government during a stormy
meeting of the Herut Central
Committee. '
SHARON'S opposition to
the slate, which was approved
nevertheless, was sparked by
the fact that Shamir failed to
restore Herut secretariat
chairman Yoram Aridor to the ,
ministerial rank of Finance
Minister, a post he resigned

last October. Sharon, incensed
over this decision, mounted
the rostrum to urge a secret
vote in the name of demo-
cracy. He demanded that all
Herut ministers, except
Shamir, should be accepted by
secret ballot.
Sharon was supported by
Levy, but opposed by Shamir,
Defense Minister Moshe Arens
and MK Ronnie Milo.
Sharon's challenge, boosted
by Levy, was seen as a direct
and unexpeced challenge
to Shamir's authority.
In his television appearance
later, Sharon insisted, as he
had at the Herut Central
Committee meeting, that if the
outstanding issues between
Likud and Labor were not re-
solved to Likud's satisfaction,
the presentation of the unity
government to the Knesset for
approval should be postponed
for a few days, even into this
week.
SHARON INSISTED that
several settlements in central
Samaria decided on by the
outgoing government must be
endorsed by the incoming
unity government and built
during the coming year, "not
like Shimon Peres says." This
latter reference was apparently
to Peres' recent public asser-
tions that the building of
future settlements will be
circumscribed.
The suggestion by Sharon
that a unity government could
be postponed for a few days
jarred Laborites, since Peres'
second 21-day mandate to
form a government was to end
Sunday. Should he have failed
by then, President Chaim
Herzog would assign that task
to someone else. However,
Labor was determined to
prevent this.
In effect, this meant that
Friday, Sept. 14, was Peres,
last chance to present a
government, since the Knesset
rarely meets on Friday or Sun-
day.
AND THIS time unlike
at earlier stages of the six-week
negotiations Labor found
itself obtaining the crucial and
pivotal support of the NRP.
The NRP leaders told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
they would not countenance a
postponement of a week but
would give their votes to a
Labor-led government if this
was what had to be presented
to the Knesset last Friday.
"We still want unity," the
NRP leaders said, "but we see
the religious ministry as
vital."
The NRP argued that Shas,
heavily influenced by Aguda
Sage Rabbi Eliezer Schach, is
a non-Zionist party and thus
should not be entrusted with
the Religious Ministry, the
embodiment of religious-
Zionism.
Aharon Abu Hatzeira,
leader of Tami and its soli
Knesset member, indicatel-
that if the NRP swung behind
Labor he might to so too. And
in Labor, there were also
hopes of winning over
Morasha, with two Knesset
seats. If these developments
materialized, Labor could be
assued of a majority in the
120-member parliament, given
the additional likelihood that
the evolving Mapam-Citizens
Rights Movement-Yossi Sarid
bloc, with a total of 10 seatsT
and the four Communist and
two Progressive List for Peace'
MKs would not vote with
Likud against Labor in the
new government.

1 Wlthh-eld from Israel
since its rebirth, was made in a
statement for the delegation,
read to the Pope by Rose.
A source explained that the
unusual timing of the meeting
was due to a mixup in train
schedules which brought the
Jewish leaders to the
Cathedral two hours before
the scheduled meeting time,
and the Pope's hectic 18 hours
of visits to various Catholic
shrines in the Quebec pro-
vince.
IN THE delegation's mes-
sage, the Pope was told that
the Jewish group greeted him
"as one who lived through the
terrible years of Nazi occu-
pation of Poland" and "thus,
you have a special and indeed
unique understanding of the
Holocaust."
The statement added that
"this has been evident on
many occasions and during
your visit to Auschwitz to
honor the memory of innocent
Jewish victims of genocide and
those who resisted evil, many
of whom went to their deaths.
"We yearn for the day when
the spirit which pervades
Catholic-Jewish relations will
enable the Holy See to recog-
nize the State of Israel. Such
an act would be of profound
universal significance."
ARRANGEMENTS for the
meeting of Canadian Jews
with the Pope were made by
Archbishop Gregoire of Mon-
treal. The source said the
meeting was arranged in ac-
cordance with the Popes
practice of seeking to meet
with representatives of the
Jewish community of any
major city the much-traveled
pontiff visits.
Rose and Rabbi Robert
Steinberg, CJC director of
national religious affairs, in
radio interviews broadcast by
the Canadian Broadcasting
Service, stressed the "warm
and cordial" attitudes the
Pope expressed to them and
commented on the pontiffs
positive attitudes toward Jews
and Judaism.
turous process
the many
factions in-
volved in
forming a
government.
The idea of
Likud and
Labor agreeing
to resolve this
dilemma is
good and a
much needed
step to stabilize Israel
for now. In the future I believe
a change should be made in
the election procedure for
prime minister, perhaps more
like a majority vote."
'The Israeli national
elections are a good indication
of the strength and vitality of
Israel as a democracy," stated
l)r. Theodore Rosov, presi-
dent of the Palm Beach
County Chapter of the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee. "The
composition of the new
Knesset shouldn't be misin-
terpreted as a house divided. It
is, however, representative of
a healthy Israel as a pluralistic
democratic society. I hope that
this unusual coalition of the
Likud and Labor parties will
be successful in leading Israel
out of its current uncertain
condition."

Isn't that someone special who seems too close to call and

Democratic and Republican Platform Compared
Issues Relate to Jewish Concerns
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA)
The following is a comparison
of the Democratic and Repu-
blican platforms adopted at
their respective national con-
ventions:
MIDDLE EAST
DEMOCRATS: The
Democratic Party believes that
the security of Israel and the
pursuit of peace in the Middle
East are fundamental prior-
ities for American foreign
policy. Israel remains more
than a trusted friend, a steady
ally and a sister democracy.
Israel is strategically im-
portant to the United States
and we must enter into mean-
ingful strategic cooperation.
The Democratic Party
condemns this Administra-
tion's failure to maintain a
high-level special negotiator
for the Middle East, and
believes that the Camp David
peace process must be taken
up again with urgency .
Once again we applaud and
support the example of both
Israel and Egypt to take bold
steps for peace. We believe
that the United States should
press for negotiations among
Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia
and other Arab states.
We re-emphasize the funda-
mental principle that the pre-
requisite for a lasting peace in
the Middle East remains an
Israel with secure and defen-
sible borders, strong beyond a
shadow of doubt; that the
basis for peace is the unequiv-
ocal recognition of Israel's
right to exist by all other
states; and that there should
be a resolution of the Pales-
tinian issue.
REPUBLICANS: With the
Syrian leadership increasingly-
subject to Soviet influence,
and the Palestine Liberation
Organization and its
homicidal subsidiaries taking
up residence in Syria, U.S.
policy toward the region must
remain vigilant and
strong .
The bedrock of that protec-
tion remains as it has for over
three decades, our moral and
strategic relationship with
Israel. We are allies in the
defense of freedom. Israel's
strength, coupled with United
States assistance, is the main
obstacle to Soviet domination
of the region. The sovereignty,
ecurity, and integrity of the
jute of Israel are moral
in oeratives. We pledge to help
main Israel's qualitative
x tary edge over its adver-
u es.
Today, relations between
the United States and Israel
are closer than ever before.
Under President Reagan, we
have moved beyond mere
words to extensive political,
military, and diplomatic
.ooperation. U.S.-Israeli
trategic planning groups are
.oordinating our joint defense
.1 forts; and we are directly
-upporting projects to aug-
ment Israel's defense in-
dustrial base. We support the
legislation pending for an
Israel-U.S. free trade area.
We recognize that attacks in
the UN against Israel are but
thinly-disguised attacks
against the United States, for
it is our shared ideals and
democratic way of life that are
their true targets. Thus, when
a UN agency denied Israel's
right to participate, we with-
held our financial support
until that action was cor-
rected. And we have worked
behind the scenes and in public
in other international organ-
izations to defeat discrimin-
atory attacks on our ally.
We also recognize that
Jewish emigration reached its
height at the same time there
was an American Administra-
tion dedicated to pursuing
arms control, expanding
mutually beneficial trade, and
reducing tensions with the
Soviet Union fully consist-
ent with the interests of the
United States and its allies. It
rituals, including cross-
burnings, associated with anti-
civil rights activities.
REPUBLICANS: The Rep-
ublican Party reaffirms its
support of the pluralism and
freedom that have been part
and parcel of this great
country. In so doing, it repu-
diates and completely disasso-
ciates itself from people,
organizations, publications
and entities which promulgate
is no contradiction to say that the practice of any form of
while pursuing an end to the bigotry, racism, anti-Semitism
or religious intolerance.
CONSTITUTIONAL
CONVENTION
DEMOCRATS: We oppose
the artificial and rigid cons-
titutional restraint of a
balanced budget amendment.
Further we oppose efforts to
call a federal constitutional
convention for this purpose.
REPUBLICANS: We will
work for the constitutional
amendment requiring a
balanced federal budget... If
Congress fails to act on this
issue, a constitutional conven-
tion should be convened to
address only this issue in order
to bring deficit spending under
control.
HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL
DEMOCRATS: (No
mention.)
REPUBLICANS: The Rep-
ublican Party commends Pre-
sident Reagan for accepting
the honorary chairmanship of
the campaign to erect a U.S.
Holocaust Memorial in Wash-
ington D.C. and supports the
efforts of the U.S. Holocaust
Council in erecting such a
museum and educational
center. The museum will bear
witness to the victims and sur-
vivors of the Holocaust.
arms race and reducing East-
West tensions, we can also
advance the cause of Soviet
Jewish emigration.
REPUBLICANS: We will
press for Soviet compliance
with all international agree-
ments, including the 1975
Helsinki Final Act and the UN
Declaration of Human Rights.
We will continue to protest
Soviet anti-Semitism and
human rights violations. We
admire the courage of such
people as Andrei Sakharov,
his wife Yelena Bonner,
Anatoly Shcharansky, Ida
Nudel and Josef Begun, whose
defiance of Soviet repression
stands as a testament to the
greatness of the human spirit.
We will press the Soviet Union
to permit free emigration of
Jews, Christians, and op-
pressed national minorities.
SEPARATION OF
CHURCH-STATE
DEMOCRATS: The current
Administration has consist-
ently sought to reverse in the
courts or overrule by consti-
tutional amendment a long
line of Supreme Court deci-
sions that preserve our historic
commitment to religious toler-
ance and church-state separa-
tion. The Democratic Party
affirms its support of the prin-
ciples of religious liberty, reli-
gious tolerance and church-
state separation and of the
Supreme Court decisions
forbidding violation of these
principles. We pledge to resist
all efforts to weaken those
decisions.
REPUBLICANS: We have
enacted legislation to
guarantee equal access to
school facilities by student
religious groups. Mindful of
our religious diversity, we
reaffirm our commitment to
the freedom of religion and
speech guaranteed by the
Constitution of the United
States and firmly support the
right of students to openly
practice the same, including
the right to engage in vol-
untary prayer in schools.
QUOTAS
DEMOCRATS: (Opposition
to quotas deleted in amend-
ment on floor of convention.)
REPUBLICANS: We will
resist efforts to replace equal
rights with discriminatory
quota systems and preferential
treatment. Quotas are the
most insidious form of dis-
crimination: reverse discrim-
ination against the innocent.
We must always remember
that, in a free society, dif-
ferent individual goals will
yield different results.
BIGOTRY
DEMOCRATS: The Dem-
ocratic Party strongly con-
demns the Ku Klux Klan, the
American Nazi Party, and
other hate groups. We pledge
vigorous federal prosecution
of actions by the Klan and the
American Nazi Party that
violate federal law, including
the enactment of such laws in
the j ursidictions where they do
not exist. We further condemn
those acts, symbols and
J
tion continues to promote
terrorism, rejects Israel's right
to exist, and refuses to accept
UN Resolutions 242 and 338.
ARMS FOR ARABS
DEMOCRATS: The
Democratic Party opposes this
Administration's sale of
highly advanced weaponry to
avowed enemies of Israel, such
as AWACS aircraft and
Stinger missiles to Saudi
Arabia. While helping to meet
the legitimate defensive needs
of states aligned with our
nation, we must ensure Israel's
military edge over any
combination of Middle East
confrontation states.
REPUBLICANS: (Not
mentioned.)

Our determination to parti-
cipate actively in the peace
process begun at Camp David
has won us support over the
past four years from moderate
Arab states.
Israel's partner in the Camp
David accords, Egypt, with
American support, has been a
constructive force for sta-
bility. We pledge continued
support to Egypt and other
moderate Arab regimes
against Soviet and Libyan
subversion, and we look to
them to contribute to our
efforts for a long-term settle-
ment of the region's destruc-
tive dispute.
JERUSALEM
DEMOCRATS: Jerusalem
should remain forever un-
divided with free access to the
holy places for people of all
faiths. As stated by the 1976
and 1980 platforms, the
Democratic Party recognizes
and supports the established
-tatus of Jerusalem as the
.apital of Israel. As a symbol
)f this stand, the U.S.
embassy should be moved
rom Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
REPUBLICANS: We
believe that Jerusalem should
remain an undivided city with
free and unimpeded access to
all holy places by people of all
faiths.
PLO
DEMOCRATS: The
Democratic Party opposes any
consideration of negotiations
with the PLO, unless the PLO
abandons terrorism,
recognizes the State of Israel
and adheres to UN Resolu-
tions 242 and 338.
REPUBLICANS:

All these things, the extrem-

demean when they double-speak
"humanism," in the same way
that they demean the Founding
Fathers, all of whom were
humanists.
AND IT IS not only double-
speak but a damnable lie when
the extremists equate humanism
with atheism. For the religious
roots of our Founding Fathers
were largely entwined in a reli-
gious faith called Deism. And
Deism is the second key word
which the extremists, including
ad nauseam the pinprick of
human intelligence, Phyllis
Schlafly, these days use as their
alternate pet term for anti-God.
The fact is that Deism was a
system of deeply religious
conviction that each individual
Deist, or practitioner of Deism,
interpreted for himself. In the
inaugural world of American
independence, where the new
nation's leaders valued knowl-
edge and education as the highest
human aspiration, such a system
as Deism could flourish remark-
ably weU.
It is Deism that gave rise to
the separation principle and that,

TANNENBAUM recalls that
he was among those who went
into Ohrdruf "when they busted
the gates down to get in." He
said what he saw was so terrible
"that there are no words to
describe it. Even a picture can't.
You had to be there. He added:
"The shock of that day didn't
wear off for years and years. You
know, I wasn't able to speak
about it for 16 years. Not one
word."
Tannenbaum. who is a
manager in a clothing firm and
lives in Fairlawn, N.J., said, "I
am doing what I can to make
people realize what took place
because I am worried about what
is happening now. Nazi groups
are rearing their head in Europe
and even in this country."
THE FORMER GI added that
"people must do more to make
sure there will never again be
another Holocaust.
"When I saw those bodies on
the ground at Ohrdruf," Tannen-
baum went on, "I said to myself.
My people came to America to
escape pogroms. That was
another Holocuaat. If they hadn't
come to America, one of those
bodies I saw on the ground might
have been me.' "
motto, "In God We Trust." Or
that considered an engraving of
Moses leading the Israelites
across the Red Sea for our
national seal. Or even briefly
argued for biblical Hebrew as the
new national language rather
than English.
THE INTRICACIES of this
exquisite kind of Deist thought
would surely appear to be para-
doxical to the likes of the
Schlaflys and the Jerry Falwells
among us, indeed if they knew of
its existence at all. For them,
religion is not a personal system
but a public institution.
That is why, as reverence for
knowledge and education began
to wither and die as a value in the
nation and among its leaders, so
too did Deism die. Still, for a long
time thereafter, there was suf-
ficient visceral American love for
its traditions to respect the
separation principle as a sine qua
non of our democratic way of life.
But now come the jackals
proffering their spiritual junk
food, who are out to get human-
ism too. Nor is there very much
in their way to oppose them. The
scandalous level of our national
functional illiteracy, the highest
in the democratic, industrialized
world, is simply incapable of
dealing with their kind of double-
speak.

tearful, bleeding plaster statues
and dolls with pins placed

parts to add totems to our
taboos.
the residents of the country's
poverty neighborhoods. Ever
since its creation in 1978
shortly after Premier
Menachem Begin proposed a
massive housing renovation
plan, Project Renewal has
furnished badly-needed
rehabilitation to the develop-
ment areas into which
Sephardic immigrants flocked
in the years since 1948.
The need in Ashkelon is
great. Its most densely
populated, poorest neigh-
borhood contains half of its
population. In the largely
Moroccan neighborhood of
Olval Tzion, a typical family
numbers six persons residing
in an apartment offering each
person only slightly more than
100 square feet of living space.
In the upper middle class
neighborhood of Afridar,
established by South African
Jew s, a typical family has four
members living in an apart-
ment twice that size.
Project Renewal has taken
many diaspora communities'
desire to play a more direct
role in aiding Israel with their
large financial and human
resources and "twinned"
these with needy development
communities in Israel.
Ashkelon became linked with
the Joint Israel Appeal, the
fund-raising body for the Jew-
ish communities of Great
Britain and Ireland.
UP to 600 volunteers a year
from Britain and Ireland come
to staff many of Project
Renewal's programs in
Ashkelon. According to Marty
Davis, the Brooklyn-born dir-
ector of the British Olim
Society's Ashkelon office,
many of the JIA volunteers,
seeing how Israel can utilize
their talents and energy, are
deciding to remain.
The volunteers come from
all walks of life, according to
Davis, whose beard and heavy
build recall "Wolfman Jack"
of 1950's radio fame in the
United States. Davis made
aliya four years ago at the age
of 27 after four visits.
Addressing one of the many
groups which come to
Ashkelon to see the fruit of
Project Renewal's labor,
Davis mentioned that about 20
to 40 volunteers came annually
in the Project's first few years.
The Society furnishes the
volunteers with an orientation.

settlers were unskilled and
uneducated, and brought with
them little more than they

and harried exodus from Arab
and Asian countries.

The Endowment Fund
program of Federation was
created to insure the con-
tinuity of vital Federation
services and to provide addi-
tional resources for strength-
ening the Jewish community
of the Palm Beaches. It is a
source of funds to meet un-
foreseen emergencies, for
special programs and projects
which cannot be financed
from current budgets, and for
"seed" money for innovative
and creative solutions to com-
munal problems as they may
arise.
The endowment program
offers a range of opportunities
for charitable committed
persons on all economic levels.
Many donors are attracted
because it enables them to set
up a personalized philan-
thropic fund in their own
name or in the name of one
they may wish to memorialize
or honor. Other ways to parti-
cipate include charitable
remainder trusts, outright
gifts, bequests, life insurance
policies and letters of intent.
Donors may take advantage of
substantial income tax and-or
estate tax savings made pos-
sible by tax laws designed to
encourage philanthropy.
Members of the committee
include Barry Berg, Abe
Bisgaier, Leonard Carter,
Heinz Eppler, Robert Fit-
terman, Alexander Gruber,
Arnold Hoffman, Anne Marie
Kaufman, Shepard Lesser,
Jeanne Levy, Robert S. Levy,
Robert E. List, Arnold
Mullen, Eileen Nickman,
Robert D. Perrin, Richard
Rampell, Berenice Rogers,
Thomas N. Silverman, and
Joseph E. Weingard. Ex-
officio members are Federa-
tion president Myron J. Nick-
man and Federation executive
director Norman J.
Schimelman.
Morocco. These new settlers
often moved into makeshift
quarters, while many of Isra-
el's Asnkenazic Jewish im-
migrants after 1948 had the
freedom to plan and save for
their immigration and so
populated more affluent
neighborhoods. The
Ashkenazim, Usually far more
edudcated, also had access to
better jobs.
Ashkelon, which 2,000
years ago was the site of one of
Herod's summer palaces, rose
again atop the Arab village of
Magdal, abandoned after the
1948 War of Independence.
Today, Magdal is Migdal, the
commercial center of the
town, and its former mosque
is a popular restaurant.
A good number of
Ashkelon's residents are not
working, Davis said.
Unemployment is high and it
contributes to many of the
social ills and family problems
found in the town's depressed

cularly, he said, must not only

As his wife Sonia, sitting
alongside Shulamit Shamir,
looked down from the VIP
gallery, Peres spoke of his
sense of excitement and of
deep responsibility at this
moment.
HE ALLOWED a smile to
cross his face when he read out
the list of Cabinet ministers:
LABOR: Shimon Peres;
Yitzhak Rabin, Defense;
Mordechai Gur, Health;
Moshe Shahal, Energy; Haim
Barlev, Police; Yitzhak
Navon, Deputy Premier and
Education; Arye Nehamkin,
Agriculture; Yaakov Tsur,
Absortion; and Gad Yaacobi,
Economics and Planning.
Other ministers on the
Labor side of the Knesset an-
nounced are: Amnon
areas. Ashkelon's location six
miles from the Gaza Strip's
nearly half a million Arabs has
flooded the area with cheao
labor. Davis said that
Ashkelon's jobless find it as
rewarding to collect welfare
benefits as to work at what
they consider to be menial
jobs, with the low pay and
onerous hours accepted by
many Arabs.
Wife and child abuse and
family abandonment are
.serious problems in the town's
poverty areas but, Davis said,
Project Renewal, with its
emphasis on "bringing social
work and community work
together with physical
renewal" has made these
problems less pervasive. Even
drug abuse, which along with
alcohol abuse, is an additional
problem here, "is not as
serious as it was five years
go," he said.
