Israel Puts Toughest Economic Measures On Hold
Prime Minister Peres
The government put its
toughest economic measures
on hold in hope of reaching an
agreement with Histadrut and
avoiding a second general
strike in less than two weeks.
Premier Shimon Peres and
Finance Minister Yitzhak
Modai spent many hours in
meetings with Histadrut
Secretary General Yisrael
Kessar and his aides. The up-
shot was that the government
postponed invoking the
emergency regulations by
which it planned to implement
its economic austerity
One of the first measures
would have been the dismissal
last week of about 10,000
government employees and
people employed in
government-supported local
authorities and public institu-
tions, such as the Jewish
Also delayed was the new
wage-price freeze that was to
be imposed by decree under
emergency powers derived
from the British Mandate
regime and retained in Israeli
law, though never used on the
economic front. The intention
was to avoid the lengthy pro-
cess of union negotiations and
Knesset debate. That precise-
ly was what infuriated
Kessar said between
meetings that Histadrut could
not negotiate under the threat
of decrees it considers
undemocratic and a negation
of agreements signed between
the workers' representatives
and their employers.
Peres said he agreed the
negotiations should be held in
a free atmosphere. The im-

15 Jewish Underground
Members Found Guilty
Guilty verdicts were handed
down by a Jerusalem district
court last week on 15 Jewish
defendants from the West
Bank charged with a series of
violent acts against Arab
civilians and membership in a
Jewish underground terrorist
organization. Sentences
should be pronounced within
the week. The three-judge
panel found Menahem Livni,
alleged ringleader, Shaul Nir
and Ua Sharbaf, guilty of
murder and attempted murder
in connection with the 1983
machinegun and grenade at-
tack on the Islamic College in
Hebron in which three Palesti-
nian students were killed. Two
other defendants, Yitzhak
Ganiram and Barak Nir, were
convicted of attempted
murder and manslaughter for
their part in the attack.
The verdicts, rendered 13
months after the trial began,
ended one of the most con-
troversial legal proceedings in
Israel's history. The defen-
dants, all Orthodox Jews, in-
cluding Gush Emunim
militants, had strong support
from religious and rightwing
nationalist elements in Israel
and among Jews abroad.
They claimed that whatever
actions they engaged in were
in defense of Jewish lives and
property because the govern-
ment allegedly failed to pro-
tect Jewish settlers from Arab
But the judges, Yaacov
Bazak, president of the court,
Zvi Cohen and Shmuel
Finkelstein, refused to buy
that argument. They rejected
a defense motion to admit as
evidence examples of what the
accused said was a deteriora-
tion of security for Jewish set-
tlers in the territory.
Originally, 27 defendants
were put on trial. Ten of them
were convicted earlier on the
basis of plea-bargained confes-
sions and are either serving
sentences or have completed
their time. Two others, Israel
Defense Force officers, are to
be tried separately and are
presently free on bail.
Plea bargaining played a
part on the convictions of some
of the remaining 15 defen-
dants. A charge of attempted
murder was reduced to caus-
ing grave bodily harm in the
June, 1980 car bombings
which maimed two West Bank
Arab mayors and blinded an

defense officials from several
Western countries and 100

Rabin said that while the
Palestinians constitute Israel's
most immediate terrorist
threat, Shiite terrorism
presents a new and potentially
even more serious problem. He
said that in 21 years of dealing
with terrorist activities, he had
never come across terrorists

Israeli Scholars Feel
Democracy Threatened
for the future of democracy in
Israel was expressed by two
academicians last week. Dr.
Arik Carmon resigned from
the chairmanship of the Com-
mittee on Education for
Democracy because, in his
words, the climate created by
the statements and attitudes
of some government leaders,
heads of the religious
establishments and na-
tionalistic elements made his
task impossible.
Similar views were voiced by
Prof. Asher Arian of Tel Aviv
University's faculty of social
sciences in his inaugural ad-
dress on assuming the
faculty's Romulo Betancourt
Chair in political science.
Arian said that while Israel's
democratic record is im-
pressive, the survival of
democracy here is not a
foregone conclusion.
There is no "grass roots
democratic basis" for Israel's
political parties he said,
describing them as "oligar-
chies led by relatively stable
elite groups" which are not
always in touch with the
Israel has failed to adjust to
the new political realities
created by the 1967 Six-Day
War and did not pay sufficient
attention to the question of
civil rights for Israel's
minorities. The national
debate over the future of the
West Bank and Gaza Strip is
foundering on the issues of
land and settlement, he said.
"The time has come to aban-
don the fascination with land
id to concentrate on the real
f of democracy namely
iom and equality. The
greatest challenge Israeli
democracy faces is to provide
an answer to the question of
the future role of the non-Jews
under its control," Arian said.
Carmon, an author who was
appointed to head the Commit-
tee on Education for
Democracy by the Ministry of
Education, wrote in an article
in Davar that his leaving that
post should be a warning that
democracy in Israel was
.REFERRING to members
of a Jewish terrorist
underground recently con-
victed for acts of violence
against Arab civilians on the
West Bank, Carmon said,
"The demand voiced by
ministers and Knesset
members to release the Jewish
terror defendants, the violence
by Jewish lawbreakers which
has accompanied this demand,
and the silence of political,
spiritual and social leaders in
the light of this violence have
created the conditions for an
anti-democratic climate which
is beginning to prevail in
That climate, he said, makes
the Education Ministry's mis-
sion to educate toward a
democratic way of life impossi-
ble. A teacher seeking to mold
his pupils and educate them
toward accepting moral
responsibility requires broad
support from government and
spiritual leaders which the
teacher is not gettine.
"If the Deputy Premier (Yit-
zhak Shamir) damages one of
the rules of procedure in a
democratic regime, and if he is
joined in this with violent
overtones by members of
the legislative branch and
political leaders, thereby pro-
viding indirect and sometimes
direct support for trampling
the democratic way of life
under foot, and even worse, if
no clear and unequivocal voice
is raised against this, then a
norm of undermining the foun-
dations of democracy begins to
emerge," Carmon said.
HE ADDED. "These are

Knesset members, together
with other public figures, are
giving forceful expression to
the fact that in their view,
when their positions clash with
the rules of the democratic

on the wane among Israel's
rabbis if these views differ
from their own extreme truth
and when tolerance is being
replaced by violence, currently

Arian said in his address
that another major challenge
to Israel's democracy was the
"deep social and cultural
cleavage that exists between
religious and secular Jews."
He said that the "ethnic divi-
sion of Israel, while acute, is
likely to resolve itself in the
long run or re-emerge in the
guise of social class conflict.

the poignant but grisly image
of a mother holding her dead

had taken her child away.

Shapiro observed relief efforts.

AIPAC: West Bank And Gaza Vital To Israel
"West Bank" and Gaza are
"vital" to Israel's security,
concludes a new study by the
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee detailing the
crucial role the territories play
in reducing the military and
terrorist threats against the
Jewish state.
These difficult security
issues would need to be ad-
dressed in the course of peace
negotiations, write Mid-East
experts Sara M. Averick and
Steven J. Rosen in the new
monograph, The Importance of
M "West Bank" and Gaza to
Israel's Security.
As increasing attention
focuses on the Middle East
peace process, the study points
out that "adequate security ar-
rangements are central to the
furthering of the peace pro-
cess," because "Israel depends
on defensible borders to com-
pensate for the overwhelming
numerical superiority of its
adversaries" and "no state can
* expected to accept any ar-
rangement that does not pro-
vide security for its people."
"Anyone now proposing to
move Israel's frontier back to

wormous magnitude."

ts of the pre-1967 border in

"P. pinching Israel to a nar-
\m waist only nine miles from
Jordanian positions to the
sea;" "left Israel's heartland
exposed to Arab artillery;"
and "left Arab forces in the
hills and Israeli targets in the
flatlands below."
Further, the border "con-
sisted of long, difficult-to-
defend boundaries" and
"provided no terrain obstacles
to separate Israel from hostile
Arab states."
Thus, the analysts argue,
"Israel must control the key
strategic positions in the
'West Bank' or suffer an ero-
sion of its capability to defend
against Arab attack."
Not only were the borders
inadequate to defend against
military attack, they were defi-
cient in protecting against ter-
rorist attack because "the line
was difficult to patrol, (due to)
its extreme length and
character (and) offered in-
filtrators easy passage and
good cover."
In addition, "Arab villages
near the line offered potential
sanctuary to infiltrators;"
"the terrorist base areas were
close to Jewish population
centers;" and "the Arab side
of the line offered an ideal
launching platform for rocket
attacks, making the entire
country a frontier." Further,
with the new borders, Israel
has been able to institute anti-
terror measures to curb ter-
rorist activity in the territories
measures that were not
possible under the old borders.
"Hypothetical alternatives
to Israeli counterterror forces

For example, "the authority
performing counterterror
functions must have a strong
commitment to carry out
onerous tasks in the face of
criticism from the Arab world,

authority would be both will-
ing and able to carry out the
The study extensively ex-
amines the obstacles the
post-1967 lines present to an
attacker. The present boun-
dary between Israel and Jor-
dan is the sparsely-populated
Rift Valley of the Jordan
River, a natural barrier bet-
ween the mountain tops con-
trolled by the two sides. The
river itself serves as a second
barrier to attack. Fordable in
only a few places, it channels
an attack into a few narrow
corridors, easily disrupted by
fire from defenders in the
mountain tops. To the west of
the Rift Valley, the mountains
of Judea and Samaria serve as
yet another barrier.
Before 1967, the Jordanian
army controlled the Judean
and Samarian hills. The
Israelis were in the plains
below, with no barriers to
separate the two sides.
The lack of natural barriers
was especially dangerous
because, under the old
borders, Israel had "no room
to absorb an enemy first
strike, and no room to mobilize
a citizen army."
"There has been a drastic
reduction of terrorist incidents
inside Israel's borders since it
came into possession of the
territories, and Israel's
eastern shield against Arab
conventional forces is now a
formidable barrier ... For
these reasons," the study
argues, "no government of
Israel could agree to go back to
the old situation. Nor would
the United States expect it to
do so."
The study cites President
Reagan on the issue: 'In the
pre-1967 borders, Israel was
barely ten miles wide at its
narrowest point. The bulk of
Israel's population lived within
artillery range of hostile Arab
guns. I am not about to ask
Israel to live that way again
. Israel has a right to live in
peace behind secure and defen-
sible borders, and it has a right
to demand of its neighbors
that they recognize those
facts.' "

Catch-22 Situation\
Cause for Concern
At the time, Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin seemed to have a good point but a
private point, and only for the troubled
leaders of the Unity Government. The
American hostages were still languishing in
the TWA jet that had been hijacked by
Shiite terrorists over Greece and that stood
silently at Beirut International Airport.
Both the United States and Israel were
making public statement after public state-
ment reiterating their position that there
would be no caving in to the demands made
by the Shiite terrorists.
The problem was that the hostages were
Americans, but the demands were directed
at Israel: Release the 700-odd Arabs in-
carcerated at Atlit Prison, or the hostages
will suffer a terrible fate.
The public statements had no impact on
the terrorists. Instinctively, they knew that
the Reagan Administration was talking
tough on the outside but applying as much
"secret" pressure as it could on the Israelis
to let the prisoners go.
At the same time, a somewhat less than
subtle media blitz cooked up an anti-Semitic,
anti-Israel drive at home to force the Israelis
to act. Although they had declared only
weeks before the hijacking that they intend-
ed to release the Atht prisoners shortly, now
they felt they could not, for that would be in-
terpreted as giving in to the terrorists'
demands, a consequence both they and the
United States had publicly abjured.
Rabin Reacted to 'Games'
Reacting to the Catch-22 situation,
Defense Minister Rabin made three public
observations: 1) Let the Reaganites "stop
playing games"; 2) Let them tell us outright
what to do Israel had repeatedly said it
would let the prisoners go if Washington
made public acknowledgement that that was
precisely what it wanted; 3) Short of these
two alternatives, Israel had ho reason to do
anything, since the hostage situation was an
"American problem."
This last was perhaps the worst of the
things that Rabin said. It enflamed the Ad-
ministration, the media and therefore the
American public in general, which was sud-
denly spurred on by the media to wonder out
loud if perhaps U.S. aid to Israel shouldn't
be reconsidered a strange thought, in-
deed, since U.S. aid to Israel is after all a
two-way street, and those in the know
understand that this nation gets back many-
fold in a multitude of ways the investment it
makes in foreign aid to Israel.
Future Concessions on Tap
In retrospect, and with our hostages now
back home, we are not sure that the crisis
unduly strained the U.S.-Israel relationship.
Both Secretary of State Shultz and Presi-

criticism of the American public and its

But the almost angry statements of
Defense Minister Rabin seem not to want to
go away in any case, for the U.S. did play a
strange game based on a hijacker's
methodology all of its own.
In this respect, it seems urgent to us that
Rabin's most recent observations on the
crisis be taken seriously indeed. There will,
he said, inevitably be more terrorist attacks
on the United States. More important, these
too will offer crisis resolutions once again in-
volving Israeli concessions, not American
Rabin did not spell out his futuristic
scenario, but it is not hard to imagine
possibilities. How about Israel's ceding all
sovereignty over East Jerusalem for
another 30 or 40 American hostages? Or
over the Golan Heights? Or folding its tent
on the West Bank, the Camp David Accord
not withstanding?
Under these circumstances, this or a
future Administration may well make the
painful public assertion that there can be no
concessions and this time mean it.
Still what would be the impact on
American citizens generally should
Americans be forced to die because Israelis
refused to come to their aid? Would they
care that the quid pro quo was impossible
they who could hardly give a single hoot,
given the circumstances, about Israeli
sovereignty, but only want their hostages
back home?
What would be the impact on Israel, given
a decision in Jerusalem to refuse an ex-
change so painful to its own interests?
Now is the time for free nations retroac-
tively to say "No!" to hijacking and to mean
it. And to show that they mean it. Now.
Before the next terrorist try.
Soviet Jewry Protest Marks
10th Anniversary Of Helsinki Accords
August 1985 marks the 10th
Anniversary of the signing of
the Helsinki Accords. In these
Accords, the Soviet Union
obligated itself to act in confor-
mity with the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights
which declared that "everyone
has a right to leave any coun-
try including their own." It
also obligated itself to the fun-
damental human rights of
freedom of religion and family
reunification. Unfortunately,
the Soviet Union has failed to
live up to these commitments.
Over 400,000 Soviet Jews
who have applied to emigrate
have been turned away; 2\),000
have been repeatedly refused.
Government sponsored anti-
Semitism is rampant and Jews
are denied the right to practice
their religion.
In order to protest these
Soviet violations of the
Helsinki Accords, a campaign
to collect half-a-million
signatures on a petition to
Soviet leader Mikhail Gor-
bachev has been launched.
These 500,000 signatures will
be presented to the Soviet
delegation at an August
ceremony marking the 10th
anniversary of the Accords.
The purpose of this presen-
tation is to convey to the
Soviet Union the broad sup-
port which the Soviet Jewry
issue enjoys among the
American public.
We must take the lead in
sounding this- call for huyun
rights by participating in the
petition campaign. Each one of
us can gather at least a few
signatures at family get-
togethers, Hadassah
meetings, our offices, etc.
Petitions may be obtained
from: National Conference on
Soviet Jewry, 10 East 40th
Street, Suite 907, New York.

Roald Zelichonik has been
put in a cell with 12 criminals.
When his wife, Galina. pro-
tested to the authorities
because of the danger to him in
those conditions, she was told
that she could suffer the same
fate as her husband.
The following is an appeal
that she sent to the prosecutor
of the RSFSR:
"To the Prosecutor. RSFSR:
My husband, Roald
Zelichonik, was arrested with
the sanction of the Leningrad
prosecutor's office and charg-
ed with Article 190/1. This ex-
ceptional matter, detention on
demand, is applied to him
against the law. Article 96 of
the criminal procedures code
of the RSFSR does not include
persons charged according to
article 190/1 on the list of
those who must be subjected to
detention under remand
before a trial.
Besides, my husband is
seriously ill. He has kidney
disease, progressive hyperten-
sion and varicosities of both
legs. Therefore, his detention
under remand can have tragic
My husband is not a
dangerous criminal whose ar-
rest is necessary to protect
other people. His detention
under remand prevents his
legal defense because he is
deprived of the right to meet
with a lawyer and relatives or
to correspond with anybody."
Galina sent the same
message to the chief of in-
vestigations of the isolation
ward in Leningrad. She re-
quested more confirmation on
the state of Roald's health. Ac-
cording to Soviet law. she
must receive a reply to this re-
quest within three days. This

'Amato Assails Soviets For Violating Helsinki Accords

ommission on Human
1(rhts, has called upon the
Sted States government
pansion of trade

the Soviet Union
Kremlin abides to the
and letter of the
San rights agreement it
,igned ten years ago, the

led his conviction of the "ar-
rogance by Soviets for basic fun-
damental human rights at a
En conference at Federal Plaza,
s Dr. Seymour Lachman, im-
mediate past chairman of the
Coalition to Free Soviet Jews,
presented the Senator with a
report "Decade of Promise and
by the Coalition, "demonstrates
dearly that the Soviet Union, in
its treatment of Jews and in its
policies with regard to emigra-
tion," according to Lachman,
has made a mockery of these
While the Soviet Constitution,
blown-up and displayed as a
backdrop for the new conference,
claims that "the USSR's relations
with other states are based on .
respect for human rights and fun-
damental freedoms, the equal
rights of peoples and their right to
decide their own destiny" and
that "the citizens of the USSR are
guaranteed freedom of cons-
cience, that is, the right to profess
or not to profess any religion and
to conduct religious worship or
aesthetic propaganda," D'Amato
pointed to severe violations of
their own laws.
D'Amato charged that the
Soviets have "sowed the seeds of
despair" as Jewish emigration,
after its 1979 peak of 51.320, has
taken a nosedive to 896 in 1984.
The National Conference on
Soviet Jewry reported only 36
Jews trickled through in June.
Out of the approximate 400,000
Soviet Jews to apply for emigra-
tion, 20,000 have met with a brick
wall of continued refusal.
THERE HAS also been a sharp
increase in the number of im-
prisonments of Jewish activists.
"Within the last 30 days,"
D'Amato observed, "we have
witnessed at least eight arrests of
people who are leaders in monitor-
ing human rights compliance in
the Soviet Union."
The Senator stressed that
Georgian Catholics, Ukrainians,
and Jews are all victims of Soviet
persecution as he revealed that
the four long-standing Helsinki
monitors that have recently been
arrested include Jewish refusenik
brothers Isai and Grigory Golds-
tein as well as Georgian Catholics
Tengis and Edward Gudava.
In addition, over the past
decade, the Soviet media has, ac-
cording to Lachman, served as
"the center of a worldwide net-
work on publications espousing
anti-Semitism" and has linked
Zionism with Nazism. "The hopes
and aspirations that were ascribed
to ten years ago," that began to
Readers Write
Uadassah Involvement Overlooked
The Jewish Floridian,
A recent article in the Flori-
dian, dated Jerusalem, on
Youth Aliyah, discussed some
of the financial problems of
Youth Aliyah.
The closing sentence, men-
I tioning that Youth Aliyah is
supported by contributions
from American Jews and
Federation, omitted a prime
factor in the support of Youth
Aliyah programs
Hadassah remains one of the
largest organizational con-
tributors in the world to Youth
Aliyah, providing monies for
general maintenance and mak-
ing extra budgetary alloca-
tions to special institutions."
There are more than 15
Hadassah Youth Aliyah in-
stitutions. Hadassah set aside
a special pediatric wing in the
Medical Center at Ein Kerem
to take care of the sick Ethio-
pian children.
Five hundred or more Ethio-
pian youth living with their
parents will attend Younth
Aliyah installations as day
Hadassah granted permis-
sion for the use of the new
Frieda Lewis Center at
Hoshaya, for three years, to
aid in the absorbing of Ethio-
pian youth.

some of these facts would be

see some deliverance with the
reunification of families, "have
been smashed," D'Amato stated.
THE SENATOR, in his quest
for freer emigration and respect
for human rights by the USSR,
began his plan of action by being
the first to sign a replica of a peti-
tion directed to Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev, calling for
Soviet adherence to the Helsinki
Final Act. Lachman noted that
the Act, signed by 35 nations, in-
cluding the USSR, in 1975. pro-
vides that "the participating
states will respect human rights
and fundamental freedoms, in-
cluding the freedom of thought,
conscience, religion or belief."
Later this month, the petition,
which the Coalition hopes will
carry tens of thousands of
signatures, will be submitted to
the State Department requesting
they be presented at a tenth an-
niversary of the Accords meeting
in Helsinki.
"The petition in and of itself has
no effect," declared D'Amato.
who will be chairman of the U.S.
Commission on Security and
Cooperation in Europe at the
Helsinki conference. But the
"moral force" backed by commit-
ment will have an effect.
D'AMATO will stress at the
Helsinki meeting that the Soviet
record on human rights "has been
dismal" and will propose that the
U.S. and nations of the free world
oppose any expansion of trade
with the Soviets, although he
clearly stated that it should not
necessarily affect any current
trade agreements.
"I believe this Administration
has before it a unique opportunity
to create a new exodus for the
tens of thousands of Soviet Jews
who wish to taste freedom."
D'Amato said.
"We need to tell those who are
systematically violating the
Helsinki agreement on basic
human rights, that unless they
begin to adhere to the principles
they agreed to, then we aren't go-
ing to bargain on other issues of
importance to them."
"What was a promise has turn-
ed out to be despair," D'Amato
asserted. "We cannot turn our
Sen. D'Amato
backs on the tens of millions who
suffer and endure We cannot
forget our brethren."

Sam learned about
The GUARDIAN PLAN, program and
changed his mind about
buying cemetery property in Florida.
Like your family. Sam s family also had strong traditions. One of those was
burial in the family cemetery property in New York. But now that he and his wife
have retired to Florida, he was led to believe that his family tradition was no
longer practical, even though he would prefer to have funeral services back
home. Sam was worried about the emotional burden on his family. And frankly,
he was worried about the cost.
Then a friend told him about The GUARDIAN PLAN* insurance funded
prearranged funeral program.* Here are the facts Sam got.
He learned he could have funeral services in New York at a very reasonable
price. He learned he could arrange all the details in advance and set the price
he could afford to pay for the services he wanted. And The GUARDIAN PLAN
program would guarantee the amount would never increase He also learned he
could select RIVERSIDE or one of the other guardian family of lewish funeral
IEFFER who honor The GUARDIAN PLAN program in Florida and in New York.

Schultz Supports Israel's Belt-Tightening
15 Jewish Underground Members
Secretary of State George
Shultz pledged the "full sup-
port" of the U.S. for the
government's tough economic
measures in letters to Premier
Shimon Peres and Finance
Minister Yitzhak Modai.
Shultz stressed that "The key
to success will, of course, be
the full and vigorous im-
plementation of your emergen-
cy economic package."
He noted, too, that
Washington's supplemental
economic aid is nearing enact-
ment by Congress and would
help Israel toward economic
Shultz's letter was received
recently after a Cabinet ma-
jority approved the Treasury's
emergency economic program
that was strongly backed by
Peres. It drew fierce opposi-
tion from Histadrut which ac-
cused the government of forc-
ing wage-earners to bear most
of the burden of economic
Shultz, who is an economist,
referred to such opposition
when he wrote to Peres: "I. .
want to congratulate you on
your courageous decision to
move boldly to address Israel's
economic problems. I know-
now difficult such decisions
are, and the inevitable
dissatisfaction these measures
may cause among some
elements, especially "in the
short term.
"On the other hand, our ex-
perience suggests that in deal-
ing, with the kind of problems
you face, firm comprehensive
steps are far more likely to
succeed and to command
broad public 'support in the
long run.
"I believe the new economic
measures represent an impor-
tant step forward in your ef-
forts to stabilize the Israeli
economy and lay the basis for
long-term growth and pro-
sperity. The key to success
will, of course, be the full and
vigorous implementation of
your emergency economic
package. I want you to know
that you have our full support
as you work to this end.
"As you know, we want to
help Israel to achieve its
economic objectives through
our assistance program. I am
confident that our supplemen-
tal assistance, which is now
close to enactment by Con-
gress, will be available in a
timely way to provide support
for this most important
Shultz wrote his letter in
response to a telephone call to
him by Peres, offering con-
gratulations for the release on
June 30 of the 39 Americans
held hostage by Shiite-
Moslems in Beirut. It began:
"Dear Shimon, thank you for
your thoughtful call Monday
on the release of the hostages.
Both our countries can take
satisfaction from the suc-
cessful resolution of the crisis.
Your cooperation and support
was very much appreciated
and touched me deeply."

Boschwitz (R., Minn.) was one of
the featured speakers at a celebra-
tion here which commemorated
the 850th birthday of the medieval
Talmudist, codifier, philosopher,
and physician, Rabbi Moshe ben
Maimon, better known as the
Rambam or Maimonides, and the
completion of the Rambam's
Mishna Torah by members of Min-
nesota's Lubavitch community.
The Senator found some
parallels between Maimonides'
life to his own. "We both fled the
countries of our birth because of
reijrious persecution he, Spain;

The celebration was sponsored
by Friends of Merkos-Lubavitch,

One of the accused in that case,
Yitzhak Novik, said in court that
the verdict was unjust because "I
did what I did in order to protect
my family and neighbors." He
claimed that "it's been proven"
that the car bombings resulted in
a diminution of Arab terrorism in
the West Bank for two years.
Four defendants were convicted
of attempted murder for planting
time bombs in the chassis of four
Arab-owned buses on March 4,
1984. The bombs were timed to
explode while the buses were mak-
ing their rounds through the
crowded streets of an Arab
neighborhood in East Jerusalem.
Yehuda Etzion, described as the
No. 2 man of terrorist
underground, was said to have
been obsessed with the need to
"cleanse" the Temple Mount, an-
cient site of the Second Temple.
He considered the presence of
Islamic houses of worship there an
'abomination." He told the court
history would vindicate him
because the Dome of the Rock and
the Al Aksa mosque would, even-
tually, be removed.
The trial, which began in the
spring of 1984, was suspended un-
til after the July Knesset elections
and resumed last September,
opened the court to charges of
favoritism toward the defendants.
Although bail was denied, the ac-
cused were allowed to mingle
freely with family and friends.
They were allowed to talk to
reporters during recess and had
access to telephones.
A minor scandal occurred last
month when the defendants, be-
ing transported from the cour-
thouse to jail, were permitted to
take a swim in the Mediterranean
enroute. The police officer in
charge was severely reprimanded
and demoted.
The sentences are being
awaited with keen anticipation.
Life sentences are mandatory for
the men convicted of murder and
tough sentences seem likely for
the others. But most Israelis
doubt any of the convicts will
serve more than token time.
Israel's release last May of
1,150 Palestinian and other ter
rorists serving sentences for
murder and other serious crime,
- in exchange for three Israeli
soldiers held by Palestinian ter-
rorists in Damascus touched off
demands for the immediate
release of the accused Jewish ter
rorists. The issue became hotlv
Premier Shimon Peres found it
necessary to ask Attorney
General Yitzhak Zamir for an opi-
nion. Zamir ruled that the legal
process must be followed through
to its conclusion and only after
sentences are pronounced "can the
defendants apply for clemency.
President Chaim Herzog, who
alone has power to grant pardons,
said he would consider applica-
tions individually on their merit,
after sentencing.

David Katz: Fountain Of Youth And Charity
When David Katz of Palm
Beach says, "I was the adven-
turous type," he utters an
understatement. This 59-year
resident of Palm Beach Coun-
ty, who helped lay the original
foundation for what is now the
Jewish Federation, who
fought tooth and nail against
anti-Semitism, who feels so
strongly about Jewish charity
that in the past he borrowed in
order to give, has left an indeli-
ble mark on Jewish life here.
Katz, one of 12 children, was
born and raised in an Austrian
shtetl, and he remembers it as
"the most beautiful life you
can imagine for poor people,"
revolving around song,
laughter and the study of
The rigors of orthodox study
were matched by the physical
rigors of shtetl routine: David
Katz remembers walking a
quarter-mile to collect water
and waking up at 4 a.m. to
start the fire with wood he had
laboriously cut during the
And, as always, there was
anti-Semitism; Jews were
referred to as "Christ-killers,"
but although encounters out-
side the shtetl were often
acrimonious, Katz noted that
"it was nice when we were
amongst ourselves."
It was not religious in-
tolerance that led him to
migrate to Palestine in 1920,
however. After World War I,
when Zionism was in its hey-
day, Katz read in the Jewish
press all about olim to
Palestine which were being
promoted for a number of
social, political and religious
reasons. David Katz realized
that if he stayed in Austria he
was destined to grow up to be
a Hasidic scholar with a large
family. This fate, which he
recognized as a noble alter-
native, was nevertheless not
as appealing as striking out for
new adventures in Palestine.
"It was a new world for
me," says Katz about
Palestine. The Yishuv popula-
tion was growing rapidly, and
Katz strove with many other
young pioneers to reclaim the
parched land and turn the
eludes, "the prospects for
alternative security ar-
rangements in the 'West
Bank' and Gaza are not pro-
mising. For this reason, the
great majority of Israelis of all
political persuasions, and most
American friends of Israel who
want to see the Jewish state
safe and secure, believe that
Israel itself must protect its
own security in these areas un-
til and unless very fundamen-
tal changes take place in the
surrounding Arab world."

Affairs Committee is the only

deserts green. He and the
others moved boulders and
cleared brush from one end of
Palestine to the other.
Katz likes to point out that
this was a time for the expan-
sion of individual horizons for
many European Jews who had
a strict and provincial upbring-
ing like his.
The young pioneers built
fires and sat up at night to
guard their belongings from
raids by Bedouins. During
such vigils, ideas and ex-
periences were exchanged,
Hebrew songs were sung, and
a unique and liberal educa-
tional environment was
created. These young settlers
were the original Hashomer
Hatzair, the forerunners of
the famed Haganah.
One evening Katz and two
other young men on guard con-
fronted a Bedouin stealing
some goods. Only one of the
men was armed, but he shot
the intruder. All three men
were arrested by the British
and eventually expelled from
David Katz left Palestine
with a life-long love for the
land and its people and with a
strong reluctance to return to
shtetl life in Austria. With the
help of the Hebrew Immigrant
Aid Society in Paris, an im-

New York. With little money
and no English, he began a
life in America even more
enterprising than his prior
While attending Cooper
Union and studying design and
engineering, Katz worked in
the garment district. Beginn-
ing as a cutter, he rapidly
became a designer as his
foreman recognized Katz's ar-
tistic ability. Katz recalls walk-
ing down 5th Avenue with his
sketch pad, returning to the
shop, making the patterns, and
watching as his own sketched
designs were fabricated into
Certainly there was a career
in the fashion business for this
young talent, but the
wanderlust in Katz struck
again. The dusty, cramped
world of the garment district
violated his love for fresh air
and open spaces, so Katz and
two Gentile friends headed
When David Katz arrived in
South Florida in 1926, he was
struck by its resemblance to
Tel Aviv, and he felt like he
had finally found home. Star-
ting with about $100 and the
determination and savvy he
had acquired so far, he
established a retail clothing
business which soon grew to
incorporate five stores. Katz
says proudly that he became
"the zoot suit king of Florida."
Business, however, was not
Katz's only concern. He notic-
ed immediately that anti-
Semitism was rampant in
Florida, and the 30 or so

"We started from scratch,"
he notes as he describes his
activities as founder and first
president of the first B'nai
B'rith lodge in Palm Beach
County. As a member of the
district committee of the Anti-
Defamation League, Katz
lobied tirelessly in Tallahassee
to outlaw anti-Semitism, and
he was co-chair of the Jewish
Welfare Board, which provid-
ed food and shelter to the
many transients, Jewish and
non-Jewish alike, who wound
up in Palm Beach County.
Later, Katz remembers
Golda Meir's visit to a Florida
group of B'nai B'rith leaders;
her electrifying plea for sup-
port was met by Katz's pledge
of $100,000, which the group
didn't have in its coffers. Katz
took out a loan for the money
the next day.
"Never rest; don't postpone;
and anything for Judaism" are
three mottoes that David Katz
has lived by all his life. Before
there was a Jewish Federation
in Palm Beach County, Katz
was the first president of the
United Jewish Appeal cam-

1985 pledges open from per-
sons who pledge $150 million
to Campaign 1984, Grass
Grass also reported that
$638.5 million has been raised
for Campaign 1984 by this
juncture. "This even exceeds
the projection we made in our
April report to the Agency,"
Grass noted. "And it
represents the largest sum
ever raised by UJA/Federa-
tion Campaigns in any
peacetime year in our history.
Many communities have finish-
ed their '85 campaigns and we
are working with the re-
mainder to help them complete
theirs successfully."
Turning to cash collections
and pledges mean nothing if
they are not paid, he noted -
Grass said these were up too.
So far in calendar 1985, $171.2
million has been received, an
increase of $30.3 milion over
the same period in 1984.
Project Renewal, the part-
nership program by which
Jewish American communities
provide financial aid and sup-
port to distressed Israeli
neighborhoods with which
they are linked, or "twinned,"
has raised $161.4 million to
date, including $9 million in
Campaign '85, he said.
"The officers of the United
Jewish Appeal, at their retreat
in May," Grass said, "conclud-
ed that the United Jewish Ap-
peal reaffirms its commitment
to Project Renewal and
recognizes the obligations to
raise the necessary funds to
complete the program."
He said he will appoint a
special task force of UJA na-
tional officers to examine Pro-
ject Renewal fundraising, com-
munity by community, to help
maximize the campaign. The
task force will also explore the
potential for Project Renewal
fundraising to help Israeli
neighborhoods not yet twinned

formulated for Campaign '86,
including major fall missions
for large contributors. He said
that 24 officers have already

group of Gush Emunim settlers in
the West Bank have converted an

near the Arab village of Sanour in

a conversion.
It was approved by the head of

l A Unique Pilot Project
Thirty American teachers will
leave for Israel July 27 on a
three-week Holocaust study
trip, striving to better unders-
tand the tragic period and
relay their findings to their
Program coordinator Vladka
Meed, a Holocaust survivor,
said that President Reagan's
recent Bitburg visit has spark-
ed interest among Holocaust
related organizations "to
transmit to American youth
the events and lessons of the
Holocaust." Meed explained
that "This pioneering program
is designed to reach secondary
school students by providing
teachers with a new and inten-
sive training program."
The program, Introduction
to the Holocaust and Jewish
Resistance, is jointly spon-
sored by the American Gatner-
ing of Jewish Holocaust Sur-
vivors (AGJHS), American
Friends of Ghetto Fighters
House, the United Federation
of Teachers (UFT), AFL-CIO,
and the Educators Chapter of
the Jewish Labor Committee.
This pilot project, directed
by Henry Feingold, author of
"The Politics of Rescue, The
Roosevelt Administration and
the Holocaust, 1933-1945,"
and a professor at the City
University of New York and
Baruch College, is built to knit
the experiences of Holocaust
survivors with the young
generation of the 1980's.
"The idea of this unique pro-
ject was born and nourished by
a survivor," commented Meed,
chairperson of the Education
Committee of the American
Gathering and vice president
of the Jewish Labor Commit-
tee, as she referred to herself.
"Working out the project was
not an easy undertaking," add-
ed Meed, who is also the
author of "On Both Sides of
the Wall," an account of her
own experience in the Warsaw
Ghetto; but an "enthusiastic
response" and an "inner feel-
ing to our historic commitment
overcame the hardship," she
The Ghetto Fighters House
in Israel, which will host the
program, is an education
center founded by survivors of
ghettos and concentration
camps and is located on Kib-
butz Lohamei Hagetaot (Ghet-
to Fighters Kibbutz) in the
northern Galilee. Here, where
there is a complex that in-
cludes a library, an art collec-
tion and the largest archive of
Holocaust related films in the
world, the teachers will draw
on the personal experiences of
members of the kibbutz and
will visit sites of historic
Jewish resistance such as
Masada and Yad Vashem in
"We the survivors know the
pictures are real," Meed
stressed, "but they present on-
ly one part of what went on
during the German occupa-
tion" of Europe. While much
attention has been devoted to
the victimized Jew of the
Holocaust, Meed asserted that
there is "another part filled
with life and dignity." She also
believes that there must be a
sharper focus shifted on the
resistance and the struggle
against Nazism.
At an orientation meeting
last month, the participants
were briefed about the aims
and goals of the program.
"When I became a parent,"
revealed Roman Kent from the
American Gathering, "I realiz-
ed that you as teachers have
much more power over
students than we the parents."
He added that "We from the
American Gathering realize
that for us it is too late to do
something. With your help,
they (the students) will be able
to prevent another
Holocaust." Feingold said he
hopes to "develop a cadre of
trained teachers who can
transmit meaningfully the

Holocaust experience." Each
participant will also be ex-
pected to keep a journal to
record reactions and personal
observations. These will be left
with the kibbutz and collected
over the years for the program
to evaluate the teachers and to
determine its own progress
and success.
Many of the teachers.
recruited on the basis of
previous demonstration of
their commitment to
Holocaust studies, expressed a
deep concern over spreading
the Holocaust message to
other ethnic groups. Some of
the teachers, a majority of
whom work in the New York
area school system, pointed
out that there still exists many
stereotypes and misconcep-
tions about the Jewish people
among minority children. "It
is not a problem solely of the
Jewish people." declared Jean-
nette DiLorenzo. treasurer of
the UFT. "It is a problem of all
thinking people."
Dr. Belle Zeller. professor of
political science at City
University of New York, will
follow through once the train-
ing is complete and check how
each teacher is implementing
the program. "I hope to see
that the children, regardless of
their ethnic backgroun, get to
understand this time period,"
remarked Zeller.
But before any results can be
tabulated or charted, three
weeks of living and breathing
the memories of the Holocaust
await these 30 pioneers. And
as Meed suggests, "An inner
spiritual strength must be cap-
tured," because "divorced
from the reality of Jewish life,
the story of Jewish death can-
not be told."

USY Nativ Program Gears Up For Fall '85
Rabbi Richard K. Rocklin
Rabbi Richard K. Rocklin,
who served as Rabbi for Tem-
ple Israel in Charlotte, N.C.,
for the past 15 years, has ac-
cepted the appointment to
serve as rabbi for the Lake
Worth Jewish Center and will
lead his first service on Friday
evening, Aug. 2.
"His desire to relocate to
Palm Beach County has
become our good fortune,"
Rabbi Paul Freedman, direc-
tor of the Department of
Youth Activities of the United
Synagogue, has announced
that the Nativ enrollment for
1985-86 represents a signifi-
cant increase over past years.
Nativ, USY's one year pro-
gram in Israel, which includes
two semesters of study at the
Hebrew University, leading up
to 36 points of transfer credits
for college, open to all high
school graduates, will have 13
of its 17 USY Regions
represented in the enrollment
this coming year.
One of the goals of Nativ is
to produce advisors and
leaders for the youth programs
of our movement and each per-
son who participates agrees to
give two years of service to the
United Synagogue and its
Youth Program upon his/her
return. In recent publications,

A strong plan for a difficult time.
Untortunately. funerals are inevitable
However, it makes sense to plan tor them like any other major
decision like making out a wil 1 or taking out a lite insurance policy

than planning many other things, because when you plan your
tuneral, you're relieving your loved ones lrom making decisions

called the Sentinel Plan Its a program where you pre-arrange
and pre-pay in installments tor your tuneral You pre-arrange o

Terrorists May Strike Again

kind of threat, Rabin said. He
listed these as hijackings and
the seizure of Americans or
other non-Iraelis as hostages
whose lives would be spared
only if Israel made concessions
that were unacceptable. He
predicted that terrorists would
strike abroad because security
measures taken by Israel made
it difficult if not impossible to
hit Israeli targets.
Rabin said he thought last
week's terrorist bombing in
Madrid was the work of Shiite
extremists. One woman was
killed, and 27 persons were in-
jured when a bomb exploded
outside the British Airways of-
fice in the Spanish capital. The
same building houses the of-
fices of TWA, the American
air carrier whose Flight 847
was hijacked by Shiite ex-
tremists on June 14, leading to
the hostage crisis in Beirut.
Rabin confirmed that with
the American hostages safely
on their way home, ar-
rangements have been made to
release the remainder of the
750 Shiites held prisoner in the
Atlit detention camp in the
near future, provided that the
security situation in south
Lebanon remains more or less
Rabin repeated Israel's ex-
planation that it planned to
free the Shiites long be-
fore the hostage crisis but
delayed because of an incident
in south Lebanon involving its
ally, the South Lebanon Army,
and the hijack of TWA Flight
847 shortly afterwards.
The hijackers demanded that
Israel free all of the original
766 Shiite prisoners who were
transferred to Atlit on April 2
from the Ansar detention
camp in south Lebanon. Had
Israel surrendered to the hi-
jackers' demands, it would
have laid itself open to further
terrorist activities, hijacking
and hostage-takings, Rabin
Observers at the conference
saw in some of Rabin's
remarks a veiled condemna-
tion of Israel's war in Lebanon
which began in June, 1982
under his predecessor, then
Defense Minister Ariel
What the invasion of
Lebanon three years ago ac-
complished, Rabin said, was to
encourage Shiite terrorism
which became much more
dangerous than the terrorism
of the Palestine Liberation
Organization the invasion was
supposed to root out. "If the
Shiites really set themselves
against Israel at home and
abroad, Israel will really have
a problem," the Defense
Minister said.
The three-day conference
split into small groups for
intensive discussions of such
subjects as Islamic te
Jewish terrorism; 2
or ideological terrori,
Europe and the U S ;

Latin America; and S3
