because one of the two residents
in the nearby village of Tubal kill-

while they were setting it. In addi-
tion, the man who two weeks ago
attacked children with a knife in
downtown Jerusalem as they
were waiting to go to a day camp
was also described as a student at
the university. He injured five of

New U.S. Ambassador

Thomas Pickering, the veteran
American diplomat, arrived

Israel. Pickering, 53, succeeds

June to pursue an academic
career. The new envoy

Upon his arrival at Ben
Gurion Airport, he told
reporters that his main task
"will be to continue to work

Soviet Union has somewhat
changed its Mideast policy and
seems to be steering a more
moderate course in its rela-
tions with Israel, according to
French Foreign Minister
Roland Dumas.
French correspondents in
Helsinki where Dumas met
recently for close to three
hours with Soviet Foreign
Minister Eduard Shevard-
nadze report that the French
delegation sees a definite
change in Moscow's policy in
the area.
Dumas himself said in a
radio interview that he felt
that a change in Soviet policy
has taken place since the new
leadership took over. Dumas,
specifically mentioned the
Middle East as one of the
areas in which this change was
The meeting took place to
lay the initial groundwork for
Soviet leader Mikhail Gor-
bachev's scheduled visit to
France in October. French of-
ficials said Dumas and
Shevardnadze did not
negotiate but prepared the
visit. Nonetheless, these of-
ficials have said, they felt a
change in the Soviet line which
appears less rigorous than in
the past.

Israel decided to try and in-
clude Anvihud in the group so
as to test Soviet willingness to
grant visas to Israeli
diplomats. Amihud told the

French Jewry: A Community In Transition
Norman Schimelman, ex-
ecutive director of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County, was recently briefed
on the status of French Jewry
while on a visit to Paris, and he
received information on the
programs sponsored by the
Fonds Social Juif Unifie (FS-
JU) from Julian Rottman,
board member of the France
Welfare Fund.
Schimelman learned that
there are approximately
700,000 Jewish citizens in
France today, making it the
largest Jewish community in
Western Europe and, follow-
ing the United Sates and the
Soviet Union, the third largest
among diaspora nations.
From 1939-1945 the Jewish
population in France was cut
by one-third due to Nazi and
Vichy French persecution.
With the help of the American
Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee, post-war French
Jewry began rebuilding its in-
stitutions and structures, and
in 1949 the JDC established
the FSJU, which has become
the central Jewish federation
for the whole of France.
Schimelman was shown that
there have been significant
demographic changes in
France since the end of World
War II, at which time there
was a tremendous influx of
Ashkenazi Jewish refugees
from DP camps throughout
Europe. Subsequently, the
decolonization of the French
empire in North Africa and the
Israeli and Arab wars sent
another wave of Jewish im-
migrants into France, this
time Sephardim with cultural
habits different from the more
established Ashkenazim.
As immigration from central
and eastern Europe practically
ceased, there was another
large influx of Sephardim from
the Middle East as a result of
the Suez War, the Evian
agreement of 1962, and the
Six-Day and Yom Kippur
wars. It is estimated that
Sephardic Jews now constitute
about three quarters of the
Jewish population in France.
Schimelman concluded that
the more orthodox Sephardim,
now evolving as the
Peres, Rabbis in Compromise
On Ethiopians, Jewish Laws
JERUSALEM (JTA) Premier Shimon Peres has
reached a compromise with the two Chief Rabbis which
eases their demand that Ethiopian Jewish immigrants
undergo ritual immersion, a religious conversion rite.
What emerged from their meeting was an agreement
that the Chief Rabbinical Council will affirm its recognition
of the Ethiopian community as Jewish for all intents and
purposes. But Ethiopian immigrants who wish to marry
must apply individually to their local religious court, and if
the latter requires ritual immersion they must comply.
TO MAKE THIS more palatable for the immigrants
the religious leaders of the Ethiopian community will serve
as advisors to the local religious panel whenever such cases
come up. But according to Rabbi Menahem Hacohen, a
Labor MK who helped Peres work out the compromise, ex-
tremist elements among the Ethiopians are likely to reject
the agreement.
Hundreds of Ethiopian immigrants staged an angry
protest march recently against the Chief Rabbis' demands
which they considered an insult that cast doubt on their
authenticity as Jews. The Chief Rabbis for their part in-
sisted that the Ethiopians must "renew the Covenant"
because during their two millennia of isolation from the
mainstream of Judaism their forebears may have

Like the local Jewish federa-
tions in America, the United
Jewish Appeal of France (AU-
JF) conducts annual fundrais-
ing campaigns, but the effort
is organized on a nationwide
basis. About two thirds of the
money raised goes to the
Jewish Agency for the people
of Israel, and one third goes to
the FSJU for social, educa-
tional and community ac-
tivities in France. This
disbursement pattern is
similar to the one used by the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County.
Last year the United Jewish
Appeal of France raised $7.7
million, $4.5 million of which
was allocated to the people of
Israel; $2.2 million was put to
work in France, a nation
whose capital city has 60
synagogues and about 70 dif-
fer en t Jewish service
organizations. The French
Jewish community also sup-
ports the Project Renewal city
of Netivote, a town of 8,000 in
the northern Negev, which
over the years has received 60
million Francs from French
Since the French govern-
ment does not provide any
assistance to new immigrants,
the FSJU has the burden of
helping the large number of
new arrivals. Through various
social action programs over
the years, the FSJU has
helped integrate 400,000
refugees and repatriates. An-
nually, about 20,000 people
make use of the various social
services provided by FSJU.
According to information
given to Schimelman, 49
Jewish day schools have
sprung up in France during
the last three years. Thirty-
eight percent of the FSJU
funds are put to work in educa-
Lantos Warns Against Arms Sales
Rep. Tom Lantos (D., Calif.)
' warned that if the Reagan Ad-
ministration decides to sell
sophisticated arms to Jordan
and Saudi Arabia it will result
in a "total fiasco" for the Ad-
ministration's current Mideast
peace efforts.
Lantos issued the warning to
Richard Murphy, Assistant
Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and South Asian Af-
fairs, as Murphy was testifying
before the House Foreign Af-
fairs Committee's European
and Mideast subcommittee
just a few hours before the Ad-
ministration was to reveal the
results of its study on the sale
of arms to the Mideast before a
closed joint session of the
House Foreign Affairs and
Armed Services Committees.
Lantos noted that since the
information was t be given in
the closed meeting and would
i / / > ua .
be classified, he would not be
able to talk about it later. But
he said he could speculate that
the study will recommend the
sale of sophisticated arms to
Jordan and Saudi Arabia and
that the Administration will
present a proposal for such a
sale after Labor Dav.
Lantos said he thought it
was a poor time now to go
ahead with the peace process
because of all the problems
Israel has, particularly its
economic crisis. But he said
proposing an arms sale will be
making matters worse by
pushing "our overstrained
democratic ally" into a renew-
ed arms race.
Murphy replied that "we
cannot pick the time to move
in the peace process." He said
in 1984 and in 1985 there were
no signals in the Middle East
that the countries wanted to
proceed. But he said that after
the visit to Washington by
King Hussein of Jordan and
the speech 19 days later by
Israeli Premier Shimon Peres
there was a signal from both
sides that they wanted to move
Rep. Larry Smith (D., Fla.)
stressed to Murphy that both
houses of Congress have gone
on record against any arms
sales to Jordan and Saudi
Arabia at this time. Murphy
said that the study does not
recommend any specific sale
and any proposed sale would
be discussed with Congress.
The Administration
reportedly is considering sell-
ing Jordan either F-16 or F-20
fighter aircraft as well as im-
proved mobile Hawk ground-
to-air missile batteries, tanks
and air transport planes. Saudi
Arabia wants to buy 40 to 60
F-15s and additional equip-
ment for the 60 F-15s it
already has.

tion, and during a five-year
period, the number of places
available for students in
Jewish schools has doubled.
Approximately 4500 students,
about half the total Jewish
school population, are subsidiz-
ed by the FSJU.
While the French govern-
ment pays for the secular por-
tion of parochial education,
which amounts to 30 percent
of the total cost, the remaining
70 percent must be paid by
families and/or subsidies from
the Jewish community.
When he asked about anti-
Israel and anti-Semitic activity
in France, Schimelman was
told that although terrorist
elements exist in France, they
do not reflect the mainstream
of French society, but rather
represent the influence of
foreign entities. Schimelman
learned that France does have
a national Jewish radio net-
work and that several Jews
hold important positions in the
government. Nevertheless, he
added that the more Orthodox
and newly-acclimated o
dim are occasionally k
upon quizically for having
loyalties to both FrancS ,

Hillel at Florida Atlantic

versely, Kessler said, "Our
[(pro-Israel) activists come

[although he admitted the ex-

[that pro-Israel groups have so

Consequently, Arab student
organizations have been focus-
ing their attention on cam-

Kessler also emphasized
that only part of the pro-Israel
activity on college campuses is
reactive. "Propaganda
response is only one compo-
nent of the pro-Israel political
agenda. We also encourage
friends of Israel to involve
themselves in the American
political process."
Kessler cited as an example
of this pro-active initiative a
petition of 500 signatures en-
couraging strong U.S.-Israel
ties collected by pro-Israel
students at the University of
Illinois Champaign/Urbana.
The petition included
signatures of local con-
gressmen and was not in
response to any particular
anti-Israel activity. The
students then collected a small
amount of money from each
signator and pooled the funds
to buy a double-page pro-Israel
ad in the school paper.
Comparing the pro-Israel
political movement to the anti-
Israel campaign, Kessler said,
"Our agenda is broader and in-
volves the mobilization of

Hillel sponsors cultural and

imperfections; they will pick
up on anything and everything
that puts Israel in a bad fight."
Many Jewish critics of the
media have suggested that ir-
responsible treatment of Israel
by networks and newspapers
has provided the anti-Israel
Arab campaigners with extra
leverage. With the media's
microscopic eyes always focus-
ed on Israel, fodder for the
anti-Israel propaganda attacks
can often be collected from the
nightly news.
Everyone concerned about
the presence of anti-Israel ac-
tivism on college campuses
agrees that education and
political action are the most ef-
fective ways of preventing
anti-Israel propaganda from
making inroads.
As Kessler concludes in The
AIPAC College Guide,
"Ultimately the (anti-Israel
campaign's) success will de-
pend less on its own strengths
than on what the campus
friends of Israel do or fail to do
to answer its distortions and
make a positive case ... All
that is needed to defeat this
campaign is a commitment to
do so."

Rough Waters Ahead
For U.S. and Israel
The consensus is that the relationship bet-
ween the United States and Israel, about
which so much journalistic poetry has been
written in its celebration, is likely to head in-
to some very rough waters in the very near
The facts are quite simple that explain the
panegyrics of praise that the Reagan Ad-
ministration has been heaping on Israel in
the recent past. These are some:
The departure from the premiership of
Menachem Begin and the Likud Party in
favor of Shimon Peres, whom the Ad-
ministration reads as a far more amenable
diplomat than his predecessor to achieving
the goals of both nations in the Middle East,
not just America's.
Prime Minister Peres' rapid implemen-
tation of the vow he made during his run for
the office that he would extricate Israel
from the mire of the Lebanese occupation as
quickly as he possibly could in accordance
with the safety of Israel's northern border;
Despite some jittery moments, the way
in which the Unity Government acceded to
backstage U.S. pressure during the hostage
crisis in the release of Shiite prisoners at
Atlit Prison;
For all of Peres' frank and active
socialism, and his repeated assertion that
Israel is anxious to resume diplomatic rela-
tions with Moscow, the Reagan Administra-
tion's awareness that Israel remains a
staunch opponent of any Soviet move
toward reclaiming a heavyweight role in
Middle Eastern affairs.
Amputations Are Scheduled
These are all on the positive side of the
ledger. They have earned Israel many points
both in Washington during the Reagan
years, as well as in the often-dark waters of
fundamentalist American Protestantism,
staunch Reaganites under any
But this is the side of the ledger that has
made it easy for both nations to affirm their
friendship again and again. What lies ahead
will be much tougher. For there is not a na-
tion friendly toward Israel in the world to-
day that is not also anxious for Israel to sub-
ject itself to new amputations of the
sovereigny of its borders in the cause of that
elusive and unrealistic dream: peace bet-
ween Israel and the Arab countries. The
United States stands among those nations.
Lebanon is a case in point. It was Israel's
exit from Lebanon that delighted the
Reagan Administration. The initial war
launched in 1981, no matter how noble the
Begin regime's explanation of it, was
especially rankling to the Administration if
only because of the humiliation that the
United States suffered in Beirut at the
hands of numerous terrorist actions against
it courtesy of the alliance of friendship bet-
ween it and the "invaders."
Purposes in Conflict
And so the Reaganites, including
Secretary of State Shultz, by now a proven
public defender of the Israeli cause, are
especially anxious for peace in an area of the
world to which American foreign policy can-
not see itself committing armed forces if
necessary Arab war to save Israel from
possible destructive strikes in a renewed
Arab war launched, say, by Syria.
This was especially apparent during one of
President Reagan's recent war of words
against the Shiite terrorists when, in listing
the centers of world terrorism, he was
careful not to include Syria among them.
The Reaganites' purposes appear noble,
indeed. Israel is a democratic nation like our
own, imbued with the same principles of
freedom, and a friend on whom we can rely.
This does not conflict with our second pur-
pose in the Middle East our oil policies
and our hope for friendship with the
"moderate" Arab states, as well. At least,
we hope it does not.
Still, what this juxtaposition of our pur-
poses does do is to explain why we, and
Israel's friends elsewhere, are so anxious for
peace that we are once again rolling up our
sleeves in anticipation of yet another
surgical slicing away at the body of Israel:
the Golan Heights, Judea, Samaria, perhaps
even Greater Jerusalem any of these to
nudge the Arabs toward peace with the
The Delusion of Peace
For its part, Israel understands that the
idea of peace in our time between Israel and
the Arabs is just that, an idea, a replay of
the peace forged between Britain and Ger-
many on the eve of World War II when
Neville Chamberlain agreed to "cede"
Czechoslovakia to the Nazis. Or, indeed, of
the "peace" forged between Israel and
Egypt in 1979, when Israel gave up the
Sinai Peninsula in the cause of normalizing
relations with Cairo which, in 1985, has still
not occurred.
Through bitter experience, Israel surely
recalls that it has subjected itself to other
such surgeries before, and always with the
same end result yet more Arab demands
for yet more territory from what is after all
the sliver of a nation in the first place.
In any case, the territory-for-peace game
has been a delusion from the very beginning
of Israel's existence. And so right now -
Unity Government rather than Begin's
Likud, Shimon Peres instead of Yitzhak
Shamir Israel seems hardly prepared to
bleed yet again for a peace that just won't be
This is precisely what Israel believes. The
Reagan Administration cannot permit itself
to agree. That is why there are rough waters
ahead for the two of them.

Volume 11 Number 25
Thirty-three years ago, on
August 12, 1952, Stalin's
regime brutally executed 24
leading Jewish cultural
figures. The anti-Jewish cam-
paign began when Soviet Jews
were denounced as "rootless
cosmopolitans" although their
ancestors had come to Russia
centuries earlier. The Soviets
initiated a campaign to stamp
out Yiddish the folk
language of Soviet Jews.
Then, Yiddish folk theaters,
newspapers, and other cultural
institutions were shut down.
Hundreds of prominent Jews
were arrested and fear spread
among Jews throughout the
Soviet Union. On August 12,
"The Night of the Murdered
Poets," after a secret trial, 24
executions took place. The
violence ended only with
Stalin's death in 1953. Other-
wise, who knows what it would
have led to.
Today, again, an anti-Jewish
campaign is being waged. This
time the goal is to suppress the
Hebrew language and to crush
the Jewish emigration move-
ment. Only 36 people were
permitted to leave in June; on-
ly 830 people last year, as op-
posed to 51,000 in 1979, a vir-
tual shutdown. Today's anti-
Jewish methods are similar:
There are arrests and im-
prisonment of emigration ac-
tivists, especially teachers of
Hebrew; almost a dozen were
imprisoned this year and three
arrested in June alone. Daily
media attacks on Zionism and
Israel are again creating an at-
mosphere of apprehension
amongst Jews throughout the
However, there are striking
differences between 1952 and
1985. Then, Soviet Jews were
"the Jews of silence," too
frightened to fight for their
rights. Today thousands have
applied to leave; they sign peti-
tions and they continue to
study Hebrew despite
surveillance. In 1952 we did
not know what was happening
until it was too late. Today, we
do know about KGB arrests
and trials. Then, the Soviet
Union was living under
Stalin's reign of terror. Today,
the new Soviet leader is the
"polished" Mikhail Gorbachev,
who wants to project a
favorable image to the West.
Mr. Gorbachev is practical; he
knows that he needs to im-
prove the Soviet economy and
needs technology advances to
modernize the sagging Soviet
industry in addition to solving
the problem of alcoholism and
absenteeism. He also knows
that what we say to our Presi-
dent and the Congress affects
trade and the Russians
badly need increased trade and
technology, particularly from
the U.S.A.
So, today, we can do
something about the suffering
of Soviet Jews. President
Reagan takes the Soviet Jewry
issue seriously, but the Presi-
dent needs to hear from us
again and again! So does the
Congress! Gorbachev would do
better to impress America by
freeing Jewish prisoners and
opening the doors again. With
the summit meeting scheduled
for November 19, in Geneva,
this could be the right time and
place for movement on the
Soviet Jewry issue. To help get
the issue on the summit agen-
da, we have to make our voices
heard. If we lived in the USSR
our opinion would not count.
However, we live in America
but we must forcefully express
our opinion for it to count.
Remembering "The Night of
the Murdered Poets" is not
enough. We've got to do
something about what's hap-
pening in the Soviet Union,
now. Freedom and rights for
Soviet Jews must be a part of
Geneva. The time to link
memory with action is now!
Send that cable! Make that
call! Write that letter! Now!

tional Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council.)

As the numbers of Soviet
Jews permitted to leave has
dropped, the persecution of
those who stay has risen just
as dramatically. Anatoly
benaransky, Yosef Begun
and others remain imprisoned
for their advocacy of Jewish
cultural and religious life in
the USSR. Others are harass-
ed after voicing their desire to
immigrate to Israel.
"I believe that this resolu-
tion sends a clear message to
the Soviet government that
Amencans are a people who
have strong compassion for
the oppressed and unwavering
intolerance of deprivation of
basic, God-given rights," said
Chiles. "We must seek a stop
to the frightening treatment of
Jews within the Soviet Union
and let that country know that
we will accept nothing less
than a fair ernigration policy.

Local Banker Impressed With Land, People Of Israel
The Jewish press is filled
with accounts of spiritual and
emotional rejuvenations felt by
American Jews who visit
Israel. But what about the
many non-Jews who visit
Israel each year? How do they
feel about their experience?
To find out The Jewish Flori-
dian interviewed Roy Talmo,
chairman of the board of First
American Bank, who recently
traveled through Israel with
Irwin and Jeanne Levy, active
members of the local Jewish
community. "It was very, very
interesting," Talmo said of the
experience as a whole.
Asked about his impressions
of'Jerusalem, Talmo said he
was fascinated with the ar-
chaeological digs. He spoke of
one excavation undertaken by
a couple who found artifacts
underneath their own apart-
ment and had plans to turn
their abode into a museum.
"Considering the age of
Jerusalem," Talmos said,
"anytime you dig down
anywhere, you're going to find
various civilizations by layer."
Since Talmo traveled with
the Levys, who have many
close Israeli friends, he had
several opportunities to ex-
perience Israeli family life.
Talmo found warmth and
geniality in the Israeli homes
he visited, but he was surpris-
ed to find that "they were
quite 'Americanized.' I didn't
find much that was different
from what I'd see here in
America. I've been to
Guatemala and Nepal, and

observed that the underlying
problem in Israel is the peo-
ple's lack of confidence in the
country's currency.
"Israelis don't have con-
fidence in the shekel, so they
spend their money rather than
saving it; this is so different
from what we see in the U.S.
Noting that wanton spen-
ding and a reluctance to save
contribute to the inflationary
spiral, Talmo added, "The
population at large needs to
save and then reinvest in
capital goods, creating the
multiplier effect. As you put
that money back into the

there you can see a whole dif-
ferent culture. But Israel is
quite Westernized."
Talmo was also surprised to
find that Israel's culture is, in
many ways, a secular one. "I
had always visualized Israel to
be a very religious country, but
it is not necessarily so. You
have a good number of Or-
thodox, of course, but I don't
think it's a truly religious
Nevertheless, Talmo's ex-
perience did encourage him to
ponder the nature of religion
in general. "What is religion?"
Talmo asked himself while he
was in Israel. "Visiting
Israel," he said, "makes you
reconsider history and religion

When man's inhumanity to
man darkens the horizon, we
must remember the year of
1944 when six million Jews, as
well as others, were murdered

Hungary, risked his life to save
tens of thousands of
Hungarian Jews from death.

Women's Division Plans Two Fall Missions
Two important and exciting
missions, one to Israel and
another to New York City, are
planned for this fall by the Na-
tional and Regional Women's
Division of the United Jewish
Appeal, and local participation
is strongly encouraged.
"The goal of the missions is
to inspire and motivate cur-
rent and potential Women's
Division campaign leader-
ship," said Carol Greenbaum,
Women's Division campaign
The National Women's Divi-
sion Leadership Mission will
take place from Oct. 16-28, in-
cluding an optional "sub-
mission" to Morocco or Poland
on Oct. 16-20. According to
Nan Goldberg, National
Women's Division Director,
the "sub-missions" are
"carefully planned to incor-
porate encounters with the
local Jewish communities, ex-
ploring both the history and
current status of what were
rich, vibrant pockets of Jewish
civilization and culture."
Once in Israel, participants
will spend one day in field
study sessions investigating
issues of their choice relating
to Israel's centrality in Jewish
life. The mission participants
will hear reports from a Jewish
Agency spokesman; from
Michael Schneider, director of
the Joint Distribution Commit-
tee in Israel, and from an
Israeli economist.
Other highlights of the
itinerary include a trip to Bet
Hatefusot, the Museum of the
Diaspora; a visit to the Elscint

"We need to impress upon
women Jewish leaders the im-
portance of supporting the
programs which are the
lifeline to continued growth

said Ms. Greenbaum.
Participants will spend much
time in Jerusalem and will be
involved in a Shabbat service
at the Western Wall and a
walking tour of the Old City.
Despite the full itinerary,
women attending the mission
will have ample opportunity to
explore on their own during

cludes a guided tour through
the Lower East Side, visits to
some of America's oldest and
most venerable synagogues, a
trip to the Jewish Museum,

The cost of the mission to

$300 plus airfare.

Almost 200 High Holiday
tickets have been donated by
area houses of worship so that
unaffiliated single Jewish
parents may participate in
religious services at this most
solemn time of year.
"We are very pleased with
the cooperation of the
synagogues," said Temple
Israel Rabbi Howard Shapiro,
chairman of the Single Parent
Committee of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County, which initiated the
"The response has been
overwhelming," agreed Linda
Elias, a member of the Single
Parent Committee. "We
thought we'd get about 100
tickets, but we have already
received almost double that."
At press time the list of con-
gregations donating tickets in-
cluded The Central Conser-
vative Synagogue, Congrega-
tion Anshei Sholom, Golden

To be eligible to receive the
tickets, single parents must
presently reside in Palm Beach
County and have children
under 18 vears of age.
The tickets are being col-
lected by Mrs. Bonnie Altman,
director of the Chaverim Pro-
gram at the Jewish Communi-
ty Center of the Palm Beaches,
and interested single parents
may contact her at 689-7700.
"We are hopeful that there
are single parents who will
take advantage of this oppor-
tunity," said Rabbi Shapiro. In
fact, the calls have already
started coming in.
"So far we've had about a
dozen replies from single
parents, which is gratifying,
considering it is still early in
the season and many families
have not finalized plans," com-
mented Mrs. Altman.
Consequently, interested
single parents are encouraged
to respond early because a
significant demand for the
tickets is expected. Emphasiz-
ing that the parents are given
a choice of a congregation to
attend, Mrs. Altman added,
"The parents calling me are
thrilled and are looking fof|
ward to going to temple witkl
their children." P ^
Ticket recipients are ev
given the number of a conta*
person at the chosen congress
tion so that they may feel nX
a part of tfiat religious con!
munity. Mrs. Altman hat
observed that many singfe
Pf n? .who. were Previous
affiliated with temples ex-
perienced a sense of discom-
fort and displacement after ar
riving at single parenthood.
Describing the inauguiii
High Holiday ticket program
as an "icebreaker," Mrs.
Altman also pointed out that
some synagogues in turn will
benefit by the introduction of
unaffiliated Jewish families to
their congregations.
Mrs. Altman noted that
many congregations make
allowances for lower-income
single-parent households, ano*
she added, "We're hoping

economy, you build a strong
Talmo's suggestion for im-
proving Israel's economy is
relatively straightforward:
"Tie the shekel to the dollar
and everything would be bet-
ter," he said. Yet Talmo ad-
mits, "The change won't come
overnight. Once the building of
confidence takes place, I think
things will improve, because
the Israelis are obviously in-
dustrious. But it will take
Commenting on Prime
Minister Shimon Peres' at-
tempt to impose wage and
price restrictions. Talmo, who
arrived in Israel in the midst of
Histadrut threats to strike,
said, "You can't please the
whole world. I give him credit
for taking a stand."
Talmo expressed concern
regarding the distribution of
entitlements in Israel, noting
that many who could comfor-
tably "pay their own way" also
get government subsidies. "If
you have a bright student who
can't afford school, there is
definitely a need for
scholarship assistance. But if
the family is well enough
situated, why should the public
support them? Such things
really eat up the economy," he
Having an interest in anti-
quities, Talmo was impressed
with the way Israel preserved
and presented its history.
After seeing points of interest
like Masada and the Dead Sea
Scrolls exhibit, Talmo said,
"The Israeli's haven't done
what the Egyptians have,
which is to rebuild things ex-
actly as they were. I think it's
better to leave things to the
viewer's imagination. In Israel
you're shown, in a general
way, what things may have
looked like, and it gives you a
feeling on which you can build
with your imagination."
Asked about his visit to Hod
Hasharon, our local Federa-
tion's Project Renewal "twin"
community, Talmo said, "It's a
very worthwhile cause." Con-
necting social phenomena in
Israel to those in America,
Talmo noted that in low-
income areas both parents
often work, making day-care a
necessity. Talmo praised Irwin
and Jeanne Levy, not only for
meeting Hod Hasharon's day-
care needs by building a new
child-care facility, but also for
doing it quietly, without
"I really congratulate Irwin
and Jeanne because many
times people want more of the
recognition factor before they
act generously; although this is
a very important project, it's
not being publicized with lights
and cameras going off."
Asked whether he would like
to return to Israel, Talmo ad-
mitted that there was much
more to see in Israel than he
saw in a week. Nevertheless,
he described himself as "an ex-
ploring person" whose
wanderlust usually directs him
to new places.
On the other hand, Talmo
was very impressed with
Israel, and many of his
preconceptions, he found,
were erroneous. He marveled
at the topographical diversity
of Israel and at the advanced
agrarian skills possessed by
many of the people.
Regarding the financial sup-
port received by Israel from
the American government and
the American Jewish com-
munity, Talmo asserted,
"What Israel has done with
those funds is fabulous." He
noted that of all the countries
receiving U.S. foreign aid,
Israel has put the resources to
work most effectively, and
Talmo considers this a tribute
to the leaders and government
of Israel.
Always the "positive
thinker," Talmo returned with
the conviction that the strug-
gles and deprivations ex-
perienced by the people of
Israel throughout history have
molded them into a stronger
nation which takes nothing for
granted. Roy Talmo hopes if
times ever get "easier" for
Israel that the traditional
strength, unity and fervor he
witnessed will maintain itself
in the hearts of the people.
It seems clear from Roy
Talmo's experience that one
does not have to be Jewish to
be impressed and enlightened
in profound ways by a visit to
the land of Israel.

prevent the anti-Israel cam-
paign from affecting student
opinion. Ms. Tobin noted that
only one full-time Hillel direc-
tor and one student intern cur-
rently serve the needs of 5,000
college-age Jewish students in
Palm Beach and Broward
However, Ms. Tobin
gratefully acknowledged that
the Hillel budget has increased
yearly, and she praised the
strides in pre-college Jewish
instruction that have been
Ms. Tobin pointed out that
AIPAC has trained students
on all the college campuses in
Palm Beach and Broward
Counties. These students,
highly attuned to the on-
campus political climate,
monitor student publications
around campus and provide
resources for other friends of
Israel with questions or

Jewish community at large in
South Florida strongly sup-

own UJA campaign, thereby

Jonathan Kessler said the
goal of AlPAC's PLDP, which
works through student liaisons
on campus and with Hillel pro-
fessionals, is "to build up and
train a strong, politically-
oriented pro-Israel student
community." PLDP staffers
travel to college campuses to
speak with, train and organize
students, and Kessler claimed
that Florida is a "target area"
for the PLDP this year.
AIPAC also sponsors na-
tional political leadership
training seminars and intern-
ship programs in Washington,
where selected students can
get in-the-trenches political ex-
perience. Kessler spoke proud-
ly of the fact that 460 of the
1,200 attendees at this year's
AIPAC policy conference in
Washington were college
Describing the close
cooperation between the B'nai
B'rith Hillel Foundation and
AIPAC as "a very important
partnership," Kessler stressed
that the effect of education is
limited without political ac-
tion, and that Israel's future
depends largely on the deci-
sions and actions made by
students who are in college
There can be no doubt that
there is anti-Israel sentiment
on many college campuses to-
day. Ranging from well-
organized, sophisticated pro-
paganda ploys to isolated but
strident attacks on Israel, the
success of the anti-Israel cam-
paign is inversely proportional
to the knowledge and commit-
ment of the on-campus friends
of Israel.
All indications suggest that
the anti-Israel campaign on
college campuses has not suc-
ceeded in influencing a large
number of students. However,
now is not the time for

Ambassador Ovadia Soffer
that France will do all it can to
enable a Soviet-Israeli rap-
prochement. Dumas said the
Israeli envoy will be a guest at
President Francois Mitter-
rand's formal reception for
Gorbachev at the Ely see
Palace. Dumas is quoted as
having said that "then it will
be up to the Russians to decide
whether to further follow up
this formal meeting." Soffer
met on July 16 for over two
hours with the Soviet Am-
bassador in Paris who, it is
reported, hinted at improved
Soviet relations with Israel.
French diplomats believe the
USSR wants to reestablish
diplomatic relations with
Israel so as to be able to play a
more active role in Mideast af-
fairs and in the forthcoming
peace negotiations.
