Blacks Want Control of Their Own Destiny
By ANDREW POLIN
I Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Jews dominated many black
civil rights organizations 20
Rears ago during the
Imovement's heyday. That,
according to Atlanta Mayor
(Andrew Young, was the
T'biggest problem" within the
black community, which he
iaid was "totally dependent"
on the Jewish community.
This total dependence paved
khe way for a counter-
.novcment in which blacks
wanted to gain control of their
own destiny, thus causing the
initial split between blacks and
Uews in the United States.
SPEAKING AT a press
bonlercnce during the 85th
lannual convention of the
Rabbinical Assembly, Young
tompared the rift to the
problems he has as a father.
F'Vly children don't agree with
(anything that I say now mainly

knd think for themselves. I
Ihmk in many organizations
Rabbi Alexander M. Shapiro [left], president of the Rabbinical
Assembly, and Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young [right] discussed
the status of black-Jewish relations in the United States at a
press conference last week and later before the 85th annual
convention of the Rabbinical Assembly meeting in Miami
Beach.
where there was a strong,
dominant Jewish role, there
emerged a black movement for
independence that wanted to
think things through for
themselves.
"That was not only against
Jewish leaders in those black
organizations. It was against
all of the leaders in those
organizations over 50,"
Young added.
But Young said the two
communities share a common
history that assures a
productive future together.
Young, who spoke at the
convention meeting at the
Eden Roc Hotel in Miami
Beach, told approximately 500
Conservative rabbis in the
opening night session that
"our relations in the future are
assured by our relations in the
past it's only in the present
that we're having a little
trouble."
DURING A press con-
ference with Rabbi Alexander
M. Shapiro, president of the
Assembly, Young stressed the
common culture that binds
blacks and Jews together.
"The total culture of the
black community in America
has been adopted from the Old
Testament, and it's a moral
and theological legacy that we
share in common," Young
said. "I think it is because of
that legacy, which has been
unchallenged and untarnished,
that the future of black and
Jewish relationships is assured
as a very positive and
productive partnership for
justice."
Young criticized the press
for increasing tensions bet-
ween blacks and Jews by
exploiting differences between
the two communities and
giving a forum to
demagogues. "The voices that
have been either dissenting or
demagoguing have gotten the
most publicity."
DESPITE WALKING
together in the 1960s at the
forefront of the civil rights
movement, blacks and Jews in
recent years have parted ways.
The rift was exacerbated
during the 1984 Democratic
presidential primary season by

Gordon was currently
serving as president of the
Florida chapter of the Cystic

also served in that capacity in
1979-80 and 1980-81. During
his first term the chapter
achieved number one status
throughout the country as a
result of its significant growth.
He was the originator of the
500 Club, comprised of those
individuals who contributed
$500 or more to Cystic
Fibrosis. He inaugurated
many other innovative
projects including a tri-county
car wash coordinated with the
Boy Scouts of America which
raised $10,000 for Cystic
Fibrosis.
Gordon was the president of
Gordon Associates, a major
advertising firm. He is sur-

Enthusiasm from the
participants indicates that this
program is meeting their
needs. "I love it and my son
thinks it's great," said Tracy
Simkowitz who attended the
last workshop on "Shabbat"
with her husband and son,
Jason, 2'/i. "It has given us a
forum for discussing bringing
Judaism into our home. We
made challah at the last
session. Things like that leave
an impression on children.
Now we bake challah every
Friday," Mrs. Simkowitz said.
The third session, which can
be attended with or without
prior participation, will be
devoted to the theme of
Passover. According to Ceceil
Tishman, director of religious
education for Temple Israel,
the children will be making
things for Passover and will
have the opportunity to attend
the school's model seder where
they will be introduced to the
ritual of the seder.
Those responsible for the
program and directly involved
with the parents and the
children, in addition to Mrs.
Tishman, are Rabbi Howard
Shapiro, spiritual leader of
Temple Israel and chair of the
Jewish Single Parent Com-
mittee; Roberta Cooper, an
early childhood arts and crafts
specialist; and Betty Robbins,
music teacher and director of
the Junior Choir for Temple
Israel.

Hawkins Presents Petition To
Soviet Embassy For Soviet Jews
WASHINGTON, D.C.
Senator Paula Hawkins,
Senator Howard Met-
zenbaum, and Mrs. Rosa
Mesh have presented a petition
at the Soviet Embassy on
behalf of Mrs. Mesh's son,
Yakov Mesh, a Soviet Jewish
activist, who has been at-
tempting to emigrate to Israel
with his family since 1977.
Mesh, 33, a professional
tailor, his wife Marina, 26,
and their eight-year-old son,
Marat, have been trying
unsuccessfully to leave the
Soviet Union since 1977 when
20 relatives of Mr. and Mrs.
Mesh were allowed to leave
Russia. At that time the of-
ficial Soviet reason for not
allowing the Mesh family to
leave was because of Yakov
Mesh's "military service and
his knowledge of military
secrets." While in the Russian
Army Mesh served in the
Sports Section where he was
an accomplished amateur
boxer.
It is believed the real reason
for not allowing the Meshes to
emigrate is because of their
pro-Jewish activities in Russia.
The "refuseniks" have
participated in activities such
as hunger strikes, and
organizing seminars and
meetings on Jewish culture,
history and languages.
Because of these activities the
Meshes have been repeatedly
detained, arrested, in-
timidated, and harassed.

Rumania's Dwindling Jewish Community
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA)
The facts and figures per-
taining to the Jewish com-
munity of Rumania are unique
in every respect: unique in the
Jewish world, unique in the
Communist world, and unique
in Rumania itself.
Before World War II there
were 800,000 Jews in
Rumania. Half of them
perished in the Holocaust. Of
those who survived almost all
have emigrated to Israel
with the blessing of the
Rumanian government.
Today some 26,000 Jews
still live in Rumania. Half live
in Bucharest, the capital. The
rest are spread among more
than 50 provincial towns.
Virtually all of them are
members of the organized
Jewish community and ac-
tively participate in Jewish
communal, religious and
cultural life again with the
blessing of President Nicolae
Ceausescu's hardline com-
munist regime.
More than half of the Jews
are more than 60 years of age.
Many thousands of them
directly benefit in vital,
material ways from a gamut of
welfare programs, from
kosher kitchens to medical
care, funded in large part by
the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC)
once again with the full
consent of the Rumanian
authorities.
"It is quite literally a
program of survival," a
Rumanian Jewish official told
this reporter during a recent
visit to Bucharest, referring to
the welfare programs.
"Without this aid, many of
the elderly recipients would be
condemned to starve."
Given the bitterly harsh
climatic conditions prevailing
across Rumania this winter,
and the palpably evident
economic difficulties which
confront most of its citizens,
these dramatic words seemed
no exaggeration whatever.
The annual cost of the
totality of the welfare
programs is on the order of $5
million. Of this the JDC
contributes $4 million, and the
Jewish Community Federation
of Rumania the remaining
million. (The community is
sometimes the beneficiary of
bequests, and therefore holds
funds of its own.)
The programs include aid in
cash. This alone accounts for
some 30 percent of the outlay.
Some 5,000 persons are
eligible: Holocaust refugees;
elderly couples or individuals
whose families have moved
abroad, usually to Israel;
persons who, for whatever
reason, do not qualify for the
full state pension receivable on
the basis of a minimum of 25
working years.
"We are guided by two
principles," says Sami
Edelstein, head of the Jewish
Federation's assistance
department. "Strict adherence
to criteria (for eligibility), and
strict maintenance of human
dignity."
Thus the monthly aid grants
are sent, by mail, to recipients'
homes, just like the state
pensions, thereby obviating
the sometimes embarrassing
need to come to the federation
offices to collect them.
Aid packages are sent out
eight times a year, six times to
coincide with the major Jewish
festivals, and once in mid-
summer and once in mid-
winter, to bridge the long dry
seasons between festivals.
The criteria of need are
determined by a committee
comprising Chief Rabbi Moses
Rosen, Federation president
Theodore Blumenfeld, and
assistance department head
Edelstein. The final arbiter is
the rabbi, who, since his
election to office in the storms
and dangerous days of the late
forties, has led this community
with a firm hand and with
an even firmer and more
unwavering vision of its
ultimate redemption: tran-
splanted almost in its entirety
to Israel.
The packages contain
foodstuffs, purchased from
government stores. They each
weigh some 40 pounds and are
worth some $20. Married
couples receive double
packages.
Once a year, persons
meeting the criteria are invited
to their local federation offices
to select clothing and shoes.
Here, too, the precious
principle of dignity is
rigorously maintained: all the
clothing is brand new and
most of it is manufactured in
Rumania, though some is sent
over from the United States by
the JDC, and people are in-
vited in small groups, to
eliminate crowding or em-
barrassment.
Meals on wheels, bringing
hot midday meals to elderly
housebound Jews, is literally a
lifesaver in many cases. The
meals are prepared in the
kosher restaurants which are
maintained in all the major
Rumanian communities, and
despatched to recipients'
homes by minibuses owned by
the community.
There are ten restaurants
around the country offering
substantial and tasty kosher
meals every day to anyone
who comes by. And thousands
of Jews do. By no means all of
them are old or weak: younger
people too find the con-
venience and ambiance of the
Jewish restaurant attractive
and pleasant.
Those who can pay the full
22 lei (about SI.80) for their
meal. Most people, however,
pay far less, and some pay
nothing.
The criteria for payment are
determined by a discreet
means test. Yet such is the
fastidious concern for human
dignity people sitting
around the same table and
enjoying the same meal cannot
know what each of them paid
for that meal. The system of
ticketing is specifically
designed to conceal this in-
formation.
The assistance department
hires home-helpers to clean,
cook and shop for elderly
home-bound or bed-ridden
Jews. Four hundred homes in
the capital and another 300 in
the provinces benefit from this
service.
The Federation employs, in
addition, six social workers
who visit recipients and
potential recipients of the
various aid programs. These
social workers are all retired
people themselves (in
Rumania retirement age is 60
for men and 57 for women),
boosting their pensions by
doing this work but doing
it, as is immediately and
abundantly apparent, much
more out of love and devotion
than for the material benefit.
Edelstein explains that the
federation cannot attract
young, professional social
workers "because we can't
afford to pay as much as the
government." He himself is a
former senior official at the

Purim Means Radio Hoaxes,
Traffic Jams In Israel
By GIL SEDAN
And HUGH ORGEL
JERUSALEM (JTA)
Purim was marked last week
by an "April Fool"-like prank
by the Army Radio station and
mammoth traffic jams in Tel
Aviv where a carnival and
some 5,000 runners from
Israel and 15 other countries
preempted the streets for a
local version of the Boston
and New York marathons.
The Army Radio Galei
Tzahal stole the show with
a straight-faced report that an
American multi-millionaire
who died last week left his $5
billion fortune to the State of
Israel, solving in one massive
cash infusion Israel's
economic crisis.
According to the broadcast,
the benefactor stipulated two
conditions: Former Finance
Minister Yoram Aridor must
be reinstated, and the
Treasury must adopt the
controversial plan to make the
U.S. dollar Israel's official
currency. The newscast in-
cluded live interviews with
Finance Minister Yitzhak
Modai, who is at present in
Washington, and solicited
reactions from coalition and
opposition members of the
Knesset.
Telephone lines were open
to questions from listeners
who were told that the import
ban on luxury items was lifted
as soon as the hughe bequest
was known. Most listeners did
not fall for the hoax a
traditional "Purim spiel" of
the Army Radio. But it
became the talk of the town.
In Tel Aviv, where traffic
congestion is a daily way of
life, motorists simply gave up
in despair. The streets were
jammed with local residents
and visitors watching two
Purim events the annual
Adloyada carnival arranged
by shopkeepers on Sheinken
Street, a thoroughfare that has
gone to seed but is now in the
process of "gentrification"
and the fifth Tel Aviv
Marathon organized by the
Hapoel Sports Club.
There were actually three
marathons a 21-kilometer
"mini race"; a 42-kilometer
main race; and a five-
kilometer run for elderly men
and women, young children
and war invalids in
wheelchairs.
A Frenchman was winner of
the main marathon. Jean-
Pierre Charbanel did the 42
kilometers in two hours and 23
minutes. It was his second win
since 1981. A Hungarian and
an Italian runner finished
second and third. The first
woman across the finish line
was Iris Kristenssen of
Denmark.
In the short race, the oldest
runner was 78-year-old Yosef
Bein who participates in all
local marathons. The youngest
was a four-and-a-half-year-old
boy.
The carnival and parade on
Sheinkin Street drew some
50,000 spectators. More than
500 policemen were on hand to
allow traffic to cross the line
of march periodically and
occasionally to interrupt the
marathon. But vehicles were
stalled for as long as two hours
at some intersections.
More than two million
candles and a half million
packages of chocolate and
wafers were distributed
nationally by the Habad
Hasidim to new immigrants,
soldiers, hospitalized persons
and war orphans. For the new
immigrants from Ethiopia,
this was their first Purim.
The GUARDIAN PLAN program is
also an expression of love!9

Israel for nearly a decade. We
appreciate the Soviets
releasing Mr. Mesh from jail
in December. Now we would
like an immediate visa to allow
Yakov to join his family in
Israel. 1 hope this petition and
visit alerts the Soviets that the
American people have not
forgotten the Mesh family,
and the human rights issues at
stake," Sen. Hawkins said.
Since Mesh was released
from jail in December of 1984,
reports have been received that
his health has deteriorated
seriously. Mesh apparently
suffers from a liver condition.
It is thought that this was
brought about by severe
treatment while Mesh was last
incarcerated. At the present
time Mesh has not been
allowed to receive adequate
medical attention and it is
feared that this neglect, if
allowed to continue, could
lead to more serious health
problems.
Because of Mesh's past
boxing experience, the petition
being presented has been
signed by eight world
champion boxers, and 1600
other individuals from
throughout the U.S. Many of
the signatures are from
Florida residents, where Dr.
Joel Levin, a Miami plastic
surgeon, has led a grass-roots
effort to free the Mesh family,
as well as other Soviet Jews,
for the last 10 years.
"The Meshes, like many
Jewish activists, have been
living a life of fear under
Soviet oppression. On
numerous occasions the KGB
has interrupted their meetings,
stolen private books and
papers, and photographed all
the participants. The KGB
also has threatened the entire
family and has intercepted

percent of white non-Jewish
peers.
A TOTAL OF 91 percent of
Jewish fathers wanted their
children to attend college
immediately after high school,
the students said, compared to
60 percent of fathers of non-
Jewish white students.
The researchers said the
attitudes of the parents had a
bearing on the wishes of the
teenage students, with 83
percent of Jewish students
stating ambitions to get college
educations, compared with 50
percent of the overall student
population. Fifty percent of
the Jewish students, compared
to 18 percent of non-Jewish
students, said they had plans
to pursue post-college studies.
In all areas of academic
achievement, Jewish students
scored significantly higher
than their non-Jewish peers.
Japanese-American high
school students were the only
group whose members scored
as high as Jews, and in
mathematics tested a per-
centage point higher than
Jewish students.
ALL OF THE STUDENTS
gave identical rankings on a
list of social and economic
values. The students put
"being successful at work" at
the top of their concerns,
"friendships" second,
"having steady work" third,
"marriage" fourth, and
"having children" seventh.
ON RELIGIOUS IN-
VOLVEMENT, 50 percent of
the Jewish students rated
themselves as "low" and 22
percent answered "none."
Catholics and Protestants
rated themselves as low, 30
and 36 percent, respectively.
Only 7 percent of Catholic
students and 9 percent of
Protestant students used
"none" to describe their
religious involvement, ac-
cording to the study.
Forty-five percent of Jewish
students agreed with the
statement, "I am a person of
worth on an equal plane with
others," compared with 30
percent of the national
sample, according to the
study.
Like the other students,
Jews said they wanted to get
married and have children but
Jews more than any other
group, said they wanted to
have three or more children.
The authors commented
that "since most Jewish
students planned to continue
their education beyond the
college level, to pursue
professional careers and to
begin forming families at a
relatively advanced age, it
seems likely that many will
have fewer children than they
intended. The net result may
well be a continuation of the
present pattern of family size,
with Jews having somewhat
smaller families than others."

Friday, March 22, 1985 / The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County Page 11
Blacks Want Control of
lad
Continued from Page 1
e tne Rev. Jesse Jackson and
supporter of his, the black
ical minister, Louis
rakhan, who reportedly
"lied the Jewish faith a
rutter" religion. Jackson
came embroiled in this anti-
femitic controversry when he
j|ed immediately to
nouncc Farrakhan, and for
ing the word "hymie" to
fertoJews.
Young, however, was one
ack leader who immediately
nounced Farrakhan.
..apiro, in an interview with
he Jewish Floridian, said
>ung spoke "beautifully
ainst the whole
rrakhanism at a time when
ere were very few voices
ised in the black corn-
unity."
In part, Young said, a
iblem exists in deciding who
aks for the black corn-
unity. "I don't think of
ew York Mayor) Ed Koch
the spokesman for the
wish community. There are
o many rabbis who marched
iih me in Selma," Young
id.
"I DON'T know if you will
cr get unanimity among two
tnmunities as diverse as the
ish community and the
ck community," he added.
"But so long as there is
Dtinuing dialogue between
|e mainstream organizations
both communities, I think
relationship is fairly
ure," Young said.
The black-Jewish com-
niiics also have split in
cnt years on such issues as
rmativc action and South
rica's apartheid govern-
tnt.
'I think there has to be
hie understanding of the
irmative action issue,"
lung said. "We're just not
discussing it enough."
YOUNG POINTED out the
historical differences between
blacks and Jews on the
question of "quotas," which
is the foundation for the
dispute between the two
communities on this issue.
"For almost a century, quotas
were used to discriminate
against Jews so the total
history of Jews with quotas is
one of discrimination.
"Now blacks have a dif-
ferent experience with quotas.
Quotas were used to include
us," Young added.
"You can't wipe out that
past discrimination of Jews by
quotas. It has to be un-
derstood. And that difference
has to be reconciled," said
Young, former U.S.
Ambassador to the United
Nations.
SHAPIRO SAID the Jewish
community is not united on
the issue of affirmative action.
He said in Israel affirmative
action programs have
benefited Sephardic Jews.
There also is a growing
trend among American Jews
to protest South Africa's
apartheid policies, according
to Young, despite the large
Jewish community in South
Africa. He mentioned a
Jewish-organized protest at
the South African Embassy on
Christmas Day which allowed
blacks a respite on the holiday.
"1 thought that was a very
sensitive gesture. I think that's
one area we can discuss."
Shapiro said members of the
assembly have demonstrated
in front of the South African
Embassy.
Both Young and Shapiro
addressed the question of
whether the relationship they
see between blacks and Jews
exists only at a leadership level
or whether it reaches down
into the homes of blacks and
Jews.
"I think there's a lot more
of that than anyone realizes.
It's hard to evaluate," Young
said.
SHAPIRO AGREED,
saying that the relationship
between Jewish retailers and
blacks "was often very deep
and friendly. Some of that has
changed in the course of time.
But clearly the problem of
non-communication between
communities is a general
problem of our society in
terms of the relationship
between Jews and Christians
and sometimes between
different socio-economic
levels within society as a
whole.
"We're committed to an
opening. You've got to start
someplace, so you start at the
leadership level," Shapiro
said, adding that there are "all
kinds of potential" for im-
proved relations between the
two communities.
Young accepted Shapiro's
call for a national conference
of blacks and Jews, which
might be organized within the
next year, although no specific
details have been formulated.
Shapiro said the conference
would give black and Jewish
religious leaders a chance to
deal with the issues con-
fronting them.
YOUNG RESIGNED as
UN Ambassador in 1979 amid
a controversy over his
unauthorized meeting with a
Palestine Liberation
Organization representative.
Young said the incident was
completely misunderstood.
In an interview, Shapiro
said Young's history toward
the Jewish people has been a
TRADITIONS
The memories of Passover's gone by. The reading of The Haggadah-
The Kiddush-The Matzoh-The MaNishtanah-The stories of the Exodus,
the Aficomin, and above all the singing of the traditional songs and
melodies that are part of the Passover seder.
However, there is still one more tradition which has become a part
of the family Seder table-Manischewitz wine. Manischewitz wine always
graced every holiday table, particularly the
Passover Seder table. It spans
generations and somehow symbolizes the
continuity of the family Seder.
The "flavor" of Passover would not be
the same without Manischewitz Kosher Wine.

Jewish Community Unique In World
Continued from Page I
predicts the virtual end of this
entire, impressive, moving
structure of organized Jewish
life within a decade. A
combination of aliya and
biology will see to that, he
says.
Israeli experts tend to agree.
They feel there is potential for
a further 10,000 Rumanian
Jewish immigrants to Israel at
most, with the remainder of
the community intent on living
out their lives in Rumania.
Rabbi Rosen does not
disagree with the essence of
this prognosis. But he predicts
a slower shrinkage. In ten
years lime, he believes, there
will still be a Jewish
population of 15,000.
"Whether or not there will
still be organized, flourishing
communal and religious
Jewish life that depends on
us," Rosen says. "Even the
present situation is unnatural,
almost miraculous. A com-
munity of 26,000 maintaining
active Jewish centers in 68
separate places complete
with synagogues and social
services."
Rosen believes passionately
that the key to Rumanian
Jewry's monumental success
and the statistics, after all,
add up to an incredible suc-
cess-story, especially in view
of the objective circumstances
has been his unrelenting
fight to preserve the spiritual
heritage. His greatest pride
and joy are the afterschool
classes, usually held in
synagogues, where the ever-
dwindling young generation
imbibes the fundamentals of
their people's culture and
traditions.
"They may not become
great scholars (talmidei
Hahamim)," Rosen said in a
speech at the Choral
Synagogue last month in the
presence of Israeli Premier
Shimon Peres. "But they grow
up with a profound knowledge
of what it means to be Jewish
and a profound com-
mitment and identity."
Rosen's particular in-
novation, in terms of Jewish
education in trying cir-
cumstances, has been his
encouragement of music and
song. All the larger com-
munities boast Jewish youth
choirs. In Bucharest there are
several.
Enormous effort and
devotion go into rehearsing,
songwriting, organizing, and
periodically performing
especially on the festivals and
whenever a distinguished
visitor comes by, from Israel
or the West. And the en-
thusiasm of the young
choristers and musicians is
infectious, regularly rousing
audiences of Jews, young and
old (mostly old), to join in
with the songs of Zion, the
Yiddish liedcr and the
liturgical tunes that fill the
grand old synagogues with the
sounds of yesterday and of
tomorrows.
