Mordecai Levow, the school's
director, indicated that the pro-
cess leading to accreditation in-
cluded a six month self-study of
the curriculum, administrative
procedures, facility, etc. This was
followed by an intensive visit by
a five-person accreditation com-
mittee headed by Peter Benedict
the Headmaster of St. Edward's
School in Vero Beach.
The Accreditation Committee
interviewed all of the faculty
members, some JCDS students,
met with members of the Execu-
tive Committee, sat in on classes,
examined the financial records of
the school, etc. Their findings
culminated in unanimous re-
commendation for accreditation
of the school by the Council.
The Committee was par-
ticularly impressed by evidence
that the school program reflected
its unique educational philoso-
phy. Also, "that the students

Particular commendation was
made of the school staff, "sup-
portive warm faculty and student
body. The school leadership is
especially competent and
dedicated. The program does
parallel the school's philosophy.
The faculty is enthusiastic and
competent. The quality of secular
studies is not handicapped by
Judaical studies; they com-
i piement each other."
The primary areas of critical
recommendation were those
related to space and facilities
which are in the process of being
corrected with the move to the
new campus on Parker avenue.
The accreditation is part of an
ongoing effort by the school to
continue to evaluate and improve
the education available to the
Dr. Howard Kay, president of
the school, expressed bis delight
with the accreditation. "We are
proud of this objective
evaluation. We feel a sincere
obligation to the students and to
the Jewish community to provide
a quality education for all of our
children. We are committed to a ,
program of excellence that will
continue to merit the support of
the Jewish Federation of which
we are a constituent agency and
of the entire Jewish community."

Mitterand Picks Three
Jews, Including Communist
Three Jews, including a
senior member of the Com-
munist Party, were ap-
pointed to the new French
government led by Socialist
Prime Minister Pierre
Mauroy. The 73 year-old
Minister of Industry, Pierre
Dreyfus, and 53 year-old
Minister of Justice, Robert
Badinter belong to the
mainstream of the Socialist
Party and are active in
Jewish affairs.
The third, 47-year-old Charles
Fitterman, appointed Minister of
State in charge of transport, is
the second highest-ranking mem-
ber of the Communist Party. He

munist regime.

the situation created by the
Camp David agreements and re-
affirming the right of all states in
the region (the Middle East) in-
cluding Israel, to an independent
existence and their security."
At the same time, the agree-
ment reaffirmed "the right of the
Palestinian people to a home-
land." Communist Party Secre-
tary Georges Marchais declared
after the agreement was signed,
"We are in favor of Israel's ex-
istence within safe and recog-
nized borders. We are also in
favor, however, of a homeland for
the Palestinians."
Socialist sources stressed that
the four Communist ministers
will be in charge of semi-technical
ministries such as health, admin-
istrative reform and professional
training. Fitterman is however,
not only Minister of Transport
but also the third highest ranking
member of the government and

NONE OF the Communists is
expected to play any role in
shaping of France's foreign or de-
fense policy. The sources recalled
that Communists served in
France's post-war government
headed by Gen. Charles de Gaulle
and have also participated in
Socialist coalitions in NATO-
member states such as Iceland
and Portugal.
Fitterman was born to an im-
migrant Polish Jewish couple
which settled in the northern
mining city of Saint Etienne. In-
itially trained as an electrician,
he joined the Communist Party
when he was 18 and soon became
a full time party worker. He was
elected to the Politburo in 1976,
after having headed the party's
ideological training center, and
has served as member of Parlia-
ment for the last eight years.

different members of the group

how, when she first came and
lived in Belle Glade m the 1940's,
she was lonely and tried to find
friends in the Jewish community.

food, aha saw a lady who seemed
to be buying typically Jewish
foods. Mrs. Blum approached her
and struck up a conversation
with her that became not only the
basis for an introduction to the
Jewish community, but the
beginning of a lifelong friendship.

The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County
Longest Trial in History
Survivor Ponders Duesseldorf Testimony
July 10, I*,
Little attention is being
paid these days to the
events unfolding in a court-
room in the West German
city of Dusseldorf. The
criminal trial being held
there the longest in
German history started
in November, 1975. No
wonder that many people
have lost interest in die
repetitive testimony, argu
ments, pleadings and re
Though the war crimes being
discussed were committed more
than a generation ago, I have
closely followed the progress of
the proceedings or lack of
progress from afar. But then, I
have a personal stake in the out-
come. The nine defendants are
accused of complicity in the cal-
culated, state-organized murder
of 250,000 persons at Majdanek,
the Nazi-run death camp deep in
the entrails of Poland. One of
their victims was Paul Reiss. mv
ACCORDING to papers I re-
ceived from the International
Tracing Service, Paul Reiss, born
August 13, 1902, was killed in
Majdanek on August 13, 1942.
His fortieth birthday.
Among all the concentration
and death camps, therefore, Maj-
danek retains a special poignancy
for me. I rage with every day that
the trial goes on, so unnerving is
the procastination of justice. And
the almost six years of litigation
have sharpened my senses to
ironies and paradoxes that must
surely escape most observers.
For one, were the trial to end
today, it would have already
lasted far longer than the time it
took to murder all the victims of
the Holocaust
I cannot help but notice, too,
how meticulous the defense at-
torneys are about procedures and
affording legal protection to their
clients. They rightly point out
that under due process, none of
the defendants can be convicted
of collective guilt, nor guilt by
association, not even with an ad-
mission of having belonged to tht
SS in the death camp at the time
the mass murders were com-
IT IS individual guilt that
must be proved beyond reason-
able doubt although in view of
the passage of time, this is
certainly most unreasonable.
Already 20 years have elapsed
since the German government
started preparations for the trial.
It has taken that long for the
prosecutors to search out wit-
nesses, battling legal hurdles
along the way. Very few wit
nesses survived, and even among
them many have died since the
camp was liberated.
The strict adherence to the fine
technicalities of civilized law has
resulted in the dismissal of seven
of the original 16 defendants from
the trial. The court, sticking to
the smallest minutia of juris-
prudence, deemed that the pros-
ecution lacked the "smoking
gun" type evidence required for
further litigation.
In contrast to the immoral, in-
humane summary executions
perpetrated at Majdanek, those
who stand accused of these

Theresienstadt concentra-
tion camp, is Is director of

League's European Affairs
murders have been allowed to
bask interminably in the pro-
tective light of due process.
YET, as cumbersome and
painstaking as the process is in a
civilized society, the day of
verdict is finally in sight. But
only after each of the defense
attorneys seizes yet another con-
cession of time granted by the
court: One week of summation
for each of the defendants nine
weeks in which they will attempt
to defend the indefensible. At
this writing, these are about to
In a sense, the pleadings have
been more shocking and deva-
tating than the gruesome evi-
dence which had been cited
earlier during the course of the
trial. The perversion of logic and
reason by both the defendants
and their defenders is so complete
that any person who has even the
slightest sense of acceptable hu-
man conduct must stand aghast
in disbelief.

Although he is known to speak
fluent Yiddish, which his parents,
Moses and Lezla (born Rosen-
blum), still use, he has never
shown the slightest interest in
Jewish or Israel affairs. He is de-
scribed as a hard-liner who in-
variably obeys Party discipline.
THE TWO other newly-ap-
pointed Jewish ministers, Drey-
fus and Badinter, play important
roles within the Jewish com-
munity. Dreyfus is president of
the French branch of ORT and
Badinter a member of the FSJU
Bom into a traditional Jewish
Alsatkm family, Dreyfus first
went into business with his
father. After obtaining a doctor-
ate in law he joined the Ministry
-o of Finance where he remained
f until his retirement five years
s ago.

, posts, he was appointed presi-
. dent of the state-owned Renault
automobile company which he
directed for 20 years and turned
into one of the world's largest
and moat prosperous corpora-
f tiona. After his retirement from

The other Jewish Minister,
Jack Lang, appointed in the first
Mauroy government as Minister
of Culture, also favors the "dove

occupied territories and in its re-

Israel Negotiates With KLM
. AMSTERDAM (JTA) Negotiations have broken
down between the Dutch airlines KLM and the Israeli
o Ministry of Transport over the number of flights the
jj Dutch carrier may offer weekly between Amsterdam and
f Tel Aviv. The difficulty arose when KLM insisted on five
lights a week. Israel allows only four and alleged that
KLM intended to use the fifth to carry American pas sen
g. lo Israel via Amsterdam. KLM agreed to limit its
flights to four weekly but only as a temporary concession.
For example, in his sum-
mation, the attorney defending
the actions of Hermann Hack-
mann, onetime deputy com-
mandant of Majdanek, tells the
court not to forget that the de-
fendants are also suffering since
they have lived with and for
the rest of their days will con-
tinue to live with the memory
of their misdeeds.
ANOTHER defense attorney
pleads understanding for those
who took the lives of a quarter of
a million people. After all, he ex-
plains matter-of-factly, the vic-
tims often contributed to their
own suffering and eventual death
by acting irresponsibly, defying
authority and lacking discipline.
Yes, contends one of the de-
fense attorneys, children were in-
deed brutally thrown into the
trucks which took lthem to the
gas chambers, but that was be-
cause their mothers clung to
them and refused to part with
them. If the mothers had co-
operated, the children would have
been led away in orderly fashion.
Still another defense lawyer
acknowledges that his client
whipped female inmates about
the legs until only shreds were
left of the stockings they wore as
protection against the bitter cold.
But, he reminds the court, the
women knew it was forbidden to
wear stockings.
Justification is given for the
brutality with which Hildegarde
Laechert, a camp guard, un-
shed her German Shepherd to
fatally maul an inmate. It is sug-
gested preposterous as it may
sound that the victim brought
the punishment on herself by not
fending off an SS-man's amorous
advances, although she had re-
jected Laechert s lesbian

News in Brief
Hoffman Up on Criminal Charges
NEW YORK Karl Heinz
Hoffmann, founder and leader of
the banned neo-Nazi "Defense
Sport Group Hoffmann," has
been arrested on charges of
founding a criminal organization,
according to The Week in Ger-
many, a weekly newsletter of the
German Information Center here.
Hoffman, 43, and his compan-
ion, Franziska Birkmann, were
taken into custody last week in
Frankfurt. Bavarian police later
discovered some one and one half
kilograms of high explosive TNT
and a quantity of counterfeit
American dollars in Birkmann's
castle in Ermeuth, near Nurem-
berg, where the group made its
headquarters before it was out-
lawed last year, according to the
I German Information Bulletin.
TORONTO A Canadian
media expert charged this week
that the negative image of Arabs
on Canadian television and in
newspapers was largely due to
extensive Jewish control of the
media in the United States on
which Canadian editors are
heavily dependent and on the
political clout of the "New York-
Washington Jewish lobbies"
which "make the pro-life and
anti-gun control lobbies together
look like amateur night."
The expert, Marie Choquet, an
Ottawa communications con-
sultant, made her remarks to
| some 60 academicians, diplomats
and businessmen from Canada
and a dozen Arab countries
attending a three-day conference
organized by the University of
Calgary in conjunction with the
International Association of
Middle East Studies and the
Union of Arab Historians.

LONDON -Two Jewish youth
bands have refused to play at a
mass pro-Israel rally in London
next Sunday because of fears of
an Arab terrorist attack. The
bands, run by the Jewish Lads
and Girls Brigade, had been
asked to play in Trafalgar Square
during a meeting to protest
against the EEC's attempt to in-
volve the Palestine Liberation
Organization in Middle East
peace negotiations.
Although the Brigade's bands
have played at previous pro-
Israel rallies, parents of some of
the 60 drummers, buglers and,
trumpeters are understood to
have refused to let their children
do so on this occasion for rear of
an Arab-inspired attack.
Yehuda Blum, Israel's ambassa-
dor to the United Nations, has
charged that a statement issued
here by the Security Council
president, which indirectly
censured the Palestine Liberation
Organization, was "yet another
demonstration at the United
Nations of the double standard in
everything involving the PLO."
The statement by the Council
president, Porfirio Munoz Ledo
of Mexico, condemned the June
19 killing of two Fiji soldiers of
the UN Interim Force in Lebanon
(UNIFIL) by PLO terrorists, but
the statement did not refer to the
PLO by name, but to "armed ele-
ments," a UN euphemism for the
Mideast envoy Philip Ha bib re-
turned Friday to Washington
from the Middle East. He met
with Secretary of State Haig on
Saturday and was expected to see
President Reagan after the Presi-
dent's return from California.

jinifc is due to return home
shortly. A farewell concert by the
Fijian military band to have been
held in Nahariya was cancelled
because of the killings.
(In Washington, the State De-
partment condemned the killings
as "senseless violence." David

man, said, to a prepared state-
ment, "To attack members of the
United Nations peacekeeping
force is totally abhorrent and
repulsive and those responsible
for this deed bring dishonor upon
themselves." He did not identify
who was responsible.)
David Passage, a State De-
partment spokesman, said again
that Habib had gone to the Mid-

JERUSALEM The suspen-
sion of independent MK Samuel
Flatto-Sharon from the Knesset
was annulled by the Supreme
Court last weekend pending its
final decision on his bribery con-
viction. Flatto was suspended on
the recommendation of the'
Knesset's House Committee last
month after he was found guilty
by a district court of bribing
voters and other campaign irreg-
ularities in the 1977 elections. He
has appealed the verdict.
The high court's six to one
decision was, in effect, a rebuke
to the Knesset for acting before
the justices reviewed Flatto's
appeal and rendered a decision.
As a result of the ruling, Flatto
was given five more days in the
ninth Knesset. A new Knesset
was elected on Tuesday. Flatto i
was standing for reelection.

Day an Says Israel Will
Have A-Bombs As Fast
As They're Needed
Moshe Dayan has be-
come the highest ranking
political figure in Israel to
assert that Israel does not
have atomic bombs. Specu-
lation that Israel does have
some atomic weapons have
been circulating for years.
But the former Foreign Min-
ister and Defense Minister said
Israel does have the capability to
assemble such weapons quickly
and that Israel would do so if its
enemies introduced atomic
we*apons into the region. Israeli
officials have repeatedly and con-
sistently declared that Israel
would not be the first country to
introduce nuclear weapons into
the Middle East.
DAYAN MADE his comments
in an interview with Italian State
Television, excerpts of which
were released before the telecast-
ing of the interview and were re-
ported by the news agencies from
Dayan was quoted as saying:
"We are able to produce nuclear
weapons, and if we see an Arab
country introduce nuclear
i weapons into the Middle East, we
will not arrive too late with our
Dayan also said Israel had
never thought of resorting to nu-
clear weapons in past wars with
the Arabs, thus implicitly re-
jecting a rumor that he and then
Premier Golda Meir had con-
sidered that option during the
early days of the Yom Kippur
war, when Israel was suddenly
attacked on two fronts in a joint
assault by Egypt and Syria.

A Miracle in the Making
It is a 70-mile Mediterranean-to-Dead Sea Canal, part-tunnel,
part-canal, which was started on May 28 and which will, when
completed, provide Israel with some 20 percent of its total
energy needs.
Theodor Harzl. the father of political Zionism who visualized
a Jewish state exactly 50 years before Israel was established,
also prophesied such a Canal in his Utopian novel. Altneuland
The Israelis, sensitive to history and students of visionary
plans, have taken this canal project to heart and are committed
to it. It is an immense challenge. The Israel Government has
turned to the Israel Bond Organization, asking this effective and
important organization to provide the initial SI00 million in seed
money for the Canal, which it is estimated, will eventually cost
between $800-900 million.
The Bond Organization has accepted this historic responsibil-
ity by announcing a campaign to enroll Founders of the Canal. A
Founder is a purchaser of a minimum of $100,000 in Israel
Bonds in 1981.
Capitol Hill Still Debates
Israel's Osirak Bombing
(JTA) Three members of
the House Foreign Affairs
Committee said that the
June 7 Israeli raid destroy-
ing the Iraqi nuclear re-
actor has served to focus
attention on the need for
nuclear non-proliferation
throughout the world.
This was also the consensus of
members of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee before
whom the three Congressmen
testified. Sen. Rudy Boschwitz
(R.. Minn.), who conducted the
Senate Committee's third hear-
ing on the raid, said that once the
pious hypocrisy" over the
Israeli raid was disposed of,
Israel's action can focus atten-
tion on non-proliferation.
Rep. Jonathan Bingham (D..
N.Y.) told the Senate committee
that the Administration
testimony before the House com-
mittee served to "obfuscate
rather than clarify the nature of
the Iraqi nuclear threat."
HE SAID for the past years,
officials of the Carter and Reagan
Administrations had told him
that "the diversified and sophis-
ticated nuclear equipment, train-
ing, and materials which Iraq has
acquired only make sense in
terms of a desire* to achieve nu-
clear weapons capabilities."
But. Bingham said, the Iraqi
nuclear progress was never taken
seriously by the U.S. He said
Israel "had every reason to be
alarmed" by the Iraqi program
but the U.S. failed "to appreciate
how seriously Israel viewed the
security threat and how Israel
might act to defend he perceived
Bingham called on the Reagan
Administration to* "publicly
articulate a firm commitment to
direct substantial U.S. resources
to preventing the spread of nu-
clear weapons and of the capabil-
ity to manufacture nuclear
Rep Edward Markey ID..
Mass.) also called on the Presi-
dent to strengthen U.S. non-pro-
liferation efforts. "The major
threat in the worIB today is not
the arms race between the United
States and the Soviet Union,"
Markey said. "It is the threat of
nuclear weapons under the guise
of commercial nuclear power
technology to unstable nations
and eventually to terrorist
REP. TOM Lantos (D.. Calif.)
also spoke of the danger of
nuclear terrorism. "A nuclear
bomb in the hands of Muammar
Qaddafi (of Libya) or the Aya-
tolah Khomeni (of Iran) is more
likely to be used than the same
weapons in the hands of the
major powers." Lantos said.
Lantos warned that the United
States must not "delude" itself
that only Israel is endangered by
nuclear terrorism. "A decade ago
many thought that only Israeli
civilians would be the victims of
conventional terrorism." he said
"Today the murder of innocent
men. women and children goes on
throughout the world. The
terrorist networks which spread
the arms and tactics first used
against the Israelis will not
shrink from sharing whatever
other weapons they are able to
the Reagan Administration is
signalling to the world to go
ahead and construct nuclear
bombs by its recent renewal of
military aid to Pakistan, "which,
if anything, has been more overt
than Iraq in its organized efforts
to obtain a nuclear bomb."
Sen. Joseph Biden (D.. Dell
noted the testimony of Undersec-
retary of State James Buckley
that "one has to make a distinc-
tion between the nuclear option
and nuclear weapons."
Buckley, who negotiated the
renewed $3 billion economic and
military aid agreement with Pak-
istan said that he was "assured
by the Ministers and by the
President (of Pakistan) himself
that it was not the intention of
the Pakistan government to
develop nuclear weapons "Biden
said that these comments leave
him with the belief that the Ad-
ministration is "not taking non-
proliferation seriously "
I WAS brought up to the work!
of liberal American politics, with
the accent on poflt-Rooseveltian
free-spending economics. And
with the accent, too, on human
rights policies designed to correct
centuries of inequities in the land
against racial, religious, social
and fiscal minorities.
My world was a world in which
America had suddenly become a
beneficent King Kong. We bad
fought a war, a "good" war, with
whose purposes most everyone
agreed, and we had won uncondi-
tionally. We were, as the football
preppies cry. No. 1.
NOW I am being asked to turn
my back on all of that. The Rea-
ganites ask me to accept mortal
slashes to the tired body of Roo-
seveltian economic practice, not
as surgical repair, but as a form
of permanent "cure." And I am
being told that we can no longer
be policeman to the world. In
fact, I must make friends abroad
with some people whose human
rights policies are less than ever
minimally respectable.
The new Reaganite prag-
matism is alien to my genetic
fiber. Still, I am willing to try,
but his Administration is making
it awfully hard for me to do so.
The other day. for example,
speaking of astronomic interest
rates and their impact on mort-
gages and home loans, a Reagan
official said flatly of the nation's
young people whose hopes for a
vine-covered cottage and a white
picket fence are now all but gone:
"Who said that owning a home is
an American right?"
Well, it isn't. I suppose, but
there can be no denying that once
it was part of the great American
dream he now so blithely tells us
all to forget. And so I think of
those fiscal monoliths. Chase
Manhattan and Citibank and
Morgan, whose high interest
rates, whose sheer usury, are
charged for our own good. And 1
think that their con-artistrv re-
minds me of those other usurers.
Exxon and Texaco and Shell, all
of whose business enterprise their
TV commercials assure us is for
our own good. too.
I AM not at all sure that, at
bottom their policies are in fact
getting a handle on a heated
economy that spurs the inflation-
ary spiral. Or that the petromog-
uls are serious about wanting to
find alternative sources of energy
not when the present sources
are so handsomely rewarding for
But I am sure that what they
are all doing for our own good
makes them exorbitant profits
and leads me and other middle
class Americans closer to the
poor house daily, which is about
>liii with
the only house to which moat of
us will have any kind of access in
the foreseeable future.
St ill, on the heels of the fat cat
who announced in his behalf that
owning one's own home is not an
inherent American right.
President Reagan last week
declared that he wasn't about to
go after the conglomerates who
get bigger and bigger these days
by buying up other enterprises.
No sir. said President Reagan.
"Big business is not necessarily
bad business."
ALL OF which reminded me of
old Charlie Wilson who. in the
days of the Truman Administra-
tion, was president of General
Motors when General Motors
was indeed a mighty corporation.
Said Mr. Wilson back then:
"What's good for General Motors
is good for the county."

was unconstitutional. The Su-

(Hurt, written on behalf of the
Orthodox coalition, was prepared
by Dennis Rapps. executive
director of the National Jewish
Commission on Law and Public
Affairs (COLPA). with the
assistance of A. David Stern, a
COLPA attorney.
THE organizations making up
the coalition were Agudath Israel
of America; the Central Rabbini-
cal Congress of the United States
and Canada. Mosdos Bobov, the
National Council of Young Israel.

Society for Hebrew Day Schools,

letters to the Justice Department

family and for the rights of the
Orthodox Jew in particular."
Orthodox Jews had greeted the
Supreme Court ruling with a
"sign of relief" because it meant
Jewish women "will not be faced
with the irreconcilable and un-
precedented conflict between the
requirements of their faith and
the law of the land."
The statement added that "the
highest rabbinic authorities of
Orthodox Judaism have ruled
that Jewish law prohibits Jewish
women from responding to any
form of conscription."
The Orthodox agency reported
it had conducted talks for more
than a year with Selective Service
System officials in the event
women would have been required
to register. The agency said the
draft officials agreed that Oroth-
dox women could not submit to
military discipline and "had even
gone to the extent of assuring the
Orthodox community that
Orthodox Jewish women would
have been able to perform alter-
native service which would meet
your standards of family or reli-
gious supervision, as well as our
standards of public service'."

In Bailey Smith's Pulpit
Director, National Program
Division Anti-Defamation
League of BnaiBrith
If a Jew had ever appeared
before this audience, nobody
could remember. And if I had
ever been this nervous about
making a speech, I certainly
couldn't remember when.
Even though I have appeared
before many Christians church
groups in my career and talked to
all types of audiences, nothing
really prepared me for this ad-
dress before 3,000 people in the
First Southern Baptist Church of
Dell City, Oklahoma.
Even the very pulput was
daunting a type I had never
seen before. It was in the form of
a cross. Secondly, I was speaking
from a platform where spell-
binders hold forth. And none
more impressive than Bailey
Smith, the head of the 14 million-
strong Southern Baptist Con-
vention, and my host for the oc-
There was an air of unreality
that made me ask myself: What
was a Jew doing on this platform
in the heart of the Bible Belt
before a fundamentalist Christian
It went back to last Septembei
when Rev. Smith made his widely
quoted remark that "God Al-
mighty does not hear the prayers
of a Jew." That led to Rev.
Smith's request to visit the Anti-
Defamation League's head-
quarters in New York and
public and private apologies.
On that occasion, Rev. Smith
expressed deep regret for any
hurt he might have caused the
Jewish community and he said if
he had it to do over again
knowing how his remarks would
be misinterpreted he-would
not have made them.
At Passover. Rev. Smith
celebrated a Seder at the home of
Mark Briskman. head of ADL's
Northwest Texas-Oklahoma
regional office and when he
emerged, he told reporters he was
prepared to die for his friend-ship
with Jews.
Not only did Rev. Smith help
repair the damage his un-
fortunate words had caused, but
he has since stated that he stands
for a united Jerusalem as well as
an end to anti-Semitism.
On the people-to-people level,
various programs are being
developed to impart to Southern
Baptists an awareness of the
Jewish experience in America,
through such programs as joint
seminars and distribution of
ADL materials dealing with Jews
and Judaism.
Of course, all this does not
gainsay the fact that there are
and will continue to be theo-
logical differences between us.
But we have reaffirmed respect
and ew regard for each oth-
as's viewpoints.
My appearance at Rev.
Smith's church in Dell City was
one tangible expression of this.
Vs Rev. Smith welcomed the
congregation and the First
Southern Baptist choir per-
formed, I wondered how I would
be received. And. glancing at
Bailey Smith on the platform, I
could see a little apprehension on
his face. No doubt, he was
wondering what I would say.
Earlier that afternoon, sensing
his nervousness, I asked him if he
wanted to reconsider his invita-
tion for me to speak at the
church. No, he said. Then he
hesitated. He asked if he could
think about it. But within
minutes, he called me back.
"I invited you to speak and
you're going to speak, he said.
Now, sitting in the first row at
their regular Wednesday night
service in the hugs red brick
church, I glanced at my prepared
tot and then gazed at the scene
round me. The atmosphere of
the congregation made me think
of small synagogues, like those in
Eastern Europe, filled with
Lubavichers or other Hassidic
The worshipers were immersed
in communicating with God and
felt no self-consciousness in
sharing their feelings with people
around them. The spirit was
marvelousiy informal and
friendly. Infants sat on their
mothers' laps; their cries going
unnoticed, or at least accepted as
part of the normalcy of the
shared experience.
The people were alive and
natural a far cry from the
hushed, puritanical religious
services one experiences in so
many other houses of worship.
Now Rev. Smith was in-
troducing me to the audience. I
stood up and came to the plat-
form. He referred to his trip to
ADL headquarters in New York
in December, and spoke of his
friendship for us. When he called
my name, there was warm ap-
As I spoke my nervousness
evaporated fast. When I referred
to our common scriptures, I could
hear murmurs of "amen, amen."
I knew already that my ap-
pearance would be a very positive
I told the assemblage that we
have been separated for too long
and at times this has caused mis-
understanding and tension.
"But in the midst of that we
have found reconciliation. Just as
Jacob and Esau grew apart and
became alienated one from the
other, so too unfortunately, have
we Jews and Southern Baptists,"
I said.
"And yet, like Jacob and Esau,
we now meet with outstretched
arms and greet each other with
the word "Shalom" peace. We
are indeed brothers and sisters
and we should be profoundly
moved by the new possibilities
and opportunities open to us at
this time in establishing a more
meaningful understanding be-
tween our two communities."
I said that we Jews were grate-
ful for the positive role which
Pastor Smith has played and
would continue to play in fur-
thering and deepening this
I made an analogy between the
celebrations of Passover and
"Passover for us is the seminal
holiday in the Jewish calendar," I
said. "At that time we recall not
only our own suffering in bon-
dage but renew our commitment
to the struggle for freedom and
human dignity for Jews and
gentiles throughout the world
who live under the yoke of
tyranny. .
"We have suffered the
cataclusmic Holocaust, but we
also rejoice in the rebirth of the
people and land of Israel. As
Ezekiel. the prophet, did, we too.
looked into the valley of death
and saw bones, dry bones in the
ashes of Auschwitz and we too
asked "will these bones live
"And we heard God's re-
sounding voice speaking to us
through the State of Israel
saying "yes, the Jewish people
live and will live "Am Yisroel
Chai Viyichyeh." This is what
Passover means to us going
from slavery to freedom, suf-
fering to joy and from death to
reseurrection .
"Fon Good Friday, you
commemorated the death of
Jesus and recalled the travails he
underwent in his passion. But
three days later, you celebrated
Easter and proclaimed Christ is
risen." You too affirm that dark-
ness will be followed by light,
night by day, suffering by joy,
and death by resurrection.
"And just as Baptists view the
lifk between Good Friday and
Easter and death and
resurrection as intrinsic to their
faith, forming the backbone of
their identity, so too do we Jews
refuse to sever the link in our
Jewish identities between the
suffering of the Holocaust and
the partial redemption of our

I ended by wishing all a good
holiday season and asking that
God may "grant us the wisdom
to learn from one another, the
patience to share with one
another our hurts and our joys
and the courage to work together
toward our common goal shalom
- peace."
When I finished there was
applause and members of the
congregation campe up to shake
my hand. Then Rev. Smith
delivered his sermon in which he
preached the importance of peo-
ple being adaptable to change.
He cited the apostle Paul for his

Cleveland Judge Rules
Citizenship be Revoked
Federal Judge Frank Battisti
ruled that the citizenship of John
Demjanjuk be "revoked, vacated
and canceled" because the 60
year-old Ukrainian bom auto-
mobile worker lied about his Nazi
activities in World War II when
he applied for naturalization in
1958. The judgment, handed
down in writing, cleared the way
for U.S. authorities to initiate
deportation proceedings against
Battisti s decision was the final
act in a legal drama that began in
August, 1977 when the U.S.
Immigration and Naturalization
Service (INS) brought charges
against Demjanjuk, an employee
of the Ford Motor Co. and a resi-
dent of the Cleveland area since
1952. His trial opened in Federal
Court here last Feb. 10.
A parade of witnesses, many of
them concentration camp sur-
vivors living in Germany, Israel
and Uruguay, identified the
defendant as a guard at the
Treblinka and Sobibor camps in
Poland in 1942-1943 who was
known to the inmates as "Ivan
the Terrible" because of his gra-
tuitous cruelty and attrocities.
He was charged with torturing
thousands of Jewish and other
prisoners herding them into the
gas chambers.
Demjanjuk maintained that he
was a German prisoner-of-war at
the time. His trial last winter was
the occasion of a near con-
frontation between Holocaust
survivors and the local Ukrainian
community which supported
Demjanjuk. The latter contended
he was innocent and the victim of
Soviet-inspired persecution.

Reagan Social Security
Changes Under Fire
By AJCongress Study
NEW YORK Calling
the Reagan Administra-
tion's proposed changes in
the Social Security system
"hasty and ill conceived,"
the American Jewish Con-
gress has recommended a
two-part plan as an
"equitable and feasible"
solution to the system's
short-term cash flow
And a letter to Representative
J. J. Pickle, the Texas Democrat
who is chairman of the House
Ways and Means Subcommittee
on Social Security, Dr. Seymour
Z. Mann, chairman of the
AJCongress Commission on
Urban Affairs, and Jack Elkin,
co-chairman of the Congress'
Governing Council, proposed su-
porting one half of the cost of
Medicare with appropriations
from general revenue funds and
borrowing from the current sur-
plus in the Disability Fund to
replenish the Old Age Survivors
Insurance (OASI) Fund.
ensure the integrity of the system
and provide the time necessary
far a proper and comprehensive
legislative consideration of
solutions for the system's long-
term problems," Dr. Mann and
Elkin said.
The Administration's current
proposals, they slated, would
adversely affect those most in
"Most retirements occur before
age 65, and the decision to retire
is usually made because of
inability to find work," they
pointed out. "The removal of the
other-than-medical critei u for
disabled will affect most those
who are disabled from what had
been their regular work but who
lack the education and experience
to perform other, less taxing
"Furthermore," they added,
"with the elimination of the
retirement test the one Ad-
ministration proposal which
would result in increased benefits
it is the well-off profession-
als businessmen and executives
who are able to maintain sub-
stantial earnings after 66 who
would be favored.''
DESPITE their organiza-
tion's "vigorous objections" to
these proposals, however, the
AJCongress leaders said they
believe that "imbedded" in the
Administration's proposals are
"options that should be the
subject of further study and do
seem worthy if related to
equitable phasing-in criteria."
Among those ideas which they
said merit additional study are:
Extending coverage to public
employees in all jurisdictions.
Eliminating windfall benefits.
Taxing 60 percent of benefits.
Allowing federal tax deduc-
tions for social security taxes.
Mitigating the regressive
character of the social security
Supplementing employer and
employee contributions to social
security with appropriations
from general revenue.
"THERE surely are other ad-
justments and changes that
could be developed that would
speak to the system's problems
but that would not destroy the
principal social goals that from
the adoption of the first Social
Security legislation in 1936 have
been an integral part of the
nation's social welfare objec-
tives," they said.
"These goals must be pre-
served," they declared, "and, as
reflected in the Social Security
System, be articulated with other
national legislation that will sup-
port and sustain the achievement
of these noble objectives."
Reported Poor
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry has just received a report
that Ida Milgrom, the mother of
Prisoner of Conscience Anatoly
Sharansky, recently met with
Vyacheslaw Romanov, deputy
head of the medical services of
the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
He told her that her son left the
camp hospital on June 3, after
undergoing a series of exam-
inations. He said that Sharansky
suffers from a weakness of the
eye muscles and that his weight
stands at 119 lbs. This indicates a
severe weight loss since his in-
carceration in March. 1977.

From Holocaust To Rebirth

Lnts the entire course of that

[especially true of the history of
f Jewish people. Among the
votal events in ancient times

] (2) the revelation at Sinai.

ents: the Holocaust and the

are asked to remember as
children of the survivors of

Israel who survivided the
dus, are asked to remember
i a purpose Never again! Not
ny people anywhere. Not just
to Jews! Not the "Never
Bin" of a Meir Kahane; but
"Never Again" of a people
which hearkens to the universal
message of Israel's ancient pro-
It is significant that the World
Gathering be held now, and it is
equally significant that it be held
in Israel. For there is a movement
afoot to discredit the Holocaust -
to say it never happened which
is no surprise to you and
Israel's security, even continued
existence and right to exist is
being assailed constantly which
is also no surprise to you. The
World Gathering with its excell-
ent media coverage says to all
the world: It did happened to us,
and we remember ... do not
forget." And, implicit in that
message conveyed by the actual
film footage taken during the
Holocaust shown at the be-
ginning of each night's coverage
over the Public Broadcasting
System, was yet another mess-
age: Why Israel came to be born
and why a strong Israel must
continue to exist.
There are two ways we can
work towards insuring that such
things never happen again to any
people, anywhere.
The first is for those of us who
live in the Diaspora to build
strong Jewish communities and
strong Jewish commitment
wherever we live. For those of us
who live in the United States,
this means developing American
Jewish life to its fullest potential.
Such a view presupposees a
free and open American society,
one committed to the ideals of
democracy, with Jewish life as
part of the fabric of American
life, Jewish ideals and values
allowed full and free expression,

the shaping of general American
values Jewish and American -
are compatible.
A strong Jewish community
means strong and stable Jewish
institutions: Community Cen-
ters, Federations and Syna-
gogues. Strong Jewish organi-
zations which labor on behalf of
Jewish causes and human con-
cerns, which defend Jew and
Gentile alike from discrimination
and persecution, and which do so
with every legal means at our
Moreover, we must present
positive reasons for remaining
Jewish, and for becoming Jewish.
While working for survival we
must have a reason to survive.
We must give meaning to Jewish
survival. Merely to exist is not
enough. There must be purpose
to our lives in order for there to
be meaning in Jewish survival.
And we have such purpose. It
is as old as the prophets: to act in
such a manner as to bring nearer
the Messianic age tp lead lives
which are worthy of emulation to
lead others toward the pursuit of
justice, peace and righteousness.
To foster ethical action in society.
To care about the poor and the
dispossessed of this world, Jew
and Gentile alike. Our Bible and
Prayer book are replete with
noble phrases: feed the hungry,
clothe the naked, teach the ig-
norant, heal the sick, free the
captive. Thus, our prayer book
tells us, do we "keep faith with
those who sleep in the dust."
But it is beyond mere words.
We must take these words and
translate them into action: to re-
settle the refugee, distribute sur-
plus food, train the able-bodied,
create employment, while insur-
ing quality health care, and
working toward achieving equal
justice under the law.
Caring, while not robbing poor
and needy of their dignity. We
must care. And the Synagogue is
primary because it teaches caring
and compassion, for it teaches
Judaism. All other organizations
work toward our survival; only
the Synagogue works for the
survival of Judaism, which, in
turn, gives meaning to our con-
tinued existence as a people, by
giving us a purpose.
In each and every Synagogue
we must begin by caring about
each other, about each individual
member, and then, work outward
from there to the larger Jewish
community, and the community
at large. But we begin here.
We must also work to insure
that there will always be a
strong, secure Israel. That is the
second way to say "Never
Without a secure Israel, Jew-
ish life is almost unthinkable in
today's world. But, without
strong American and World
Jewish Comexunitiea, Israel
could not long survive. So, oru
fate is intertwine, and and our
concern should be reciprocal.

Even more disturbing, they do not make this

At Menorah Chapels, unlike the others,

School and St. Andrew's in Boca
Mordecai Levow, the school's
director, indicated that the pro-
cess leading to accreditation in-
cluded a six month self-study of
the curriculum, administrative
procedures, facility, etc. This was
followed by an intensive visit by
a five-person accreditation com-
mittee headed by Peter Benedict
the Headmaster of St. Edward's
School in Vero Beach.
The Accreditation Committee
interviewed all of the faculty
members, some JCDS students,
met with members of the Execu-
tive Committee, sat in on classes,
examined the financial records of
the school, etc. Their findings
culminated in unanimous re-
commendation for accreditation
of the school by the Council.

ticularly impressed by evidence
that the school program reflected

phy. Also, "that the students

Particular commendation was
made of the school staff, "sup-
Krtive warm faculty and student
dy. The school leadership is
especially competent and
dedicated. The program does
parallel the school's philosophy.
The faculty is enthusiastic and
competent. The quality of secular
studies is not handicapped by
Judaical studies; they com-
plement each other."
The primary areas of critical
recommendation were those
related to space and facilities
which are in the process of being
corrected with the move to the

new campus on Parker avenue.
The accreditation is part of an
ongoing effort by the school to
continue to evaluate and improve
the education available to the
Dr. Howard Kay, president of
the school, expressed his delight
with the accreditation. "We are
proud of this objective
evaluation. We feel a sincere
obligation to the students and to
the Jewish community to provide
a quality education for all of our
children. We are committed to a ,
program of excellence that will
continue to merit the support of
the Jewish Federation of which
we are a constituent agency and
of the entire Jewish community."
Mitterand Picks Three
Jews, Including Communist
Three Jews, including a
senior member of the Com-
munist Party, were ap-
pointed to the new French
government led by Socialist
Prime Minister Pierre
Mauroy. The 73 year-old
Minister of Industry, Pierre
Dreyfus, and 53 year-old
Minister of Justice, Robert
Badinter belong to the
mainstream of the Socialist
Party and are active in
Jewish affairs.
The third, 47-year-old Charles
Fitterman, appointed Minister of
State in charge of transport, is
the second highest-ranking mem-
ber of the Communist Party. He
is one of the four Communists
who joined the government coali-
tion, turning France into the first
major Western country to have
Communist ministers and to be
governed by a Socialist-Com-
munist regime.
coalition agreement "recognizing
the situation created by the
Camp David agreements and re-
affirming the right of all states in
the region (the Middle East) in-
cluding Israel, to an independent
existence and their security."
At the same time, the agree-
ment reaffirmed "the right of the
Palestinian people to a home-
land." Communist Party Secre-
tary Georges Marchais declared
after the agreement was signed,
"We are in favor of Israel's ex-
istence within safe and recog-
nized borders. We are also in
favor, however, of a homeland for
the Palestinians."
Socialist sources stressed that
the four Communist ministers
will be in charge of semi-technical
ministries such as health, admin-
istrative reform and professional
training. Fitterman is however,
not only Minister of Transport
but also the third highest ranking
member of the government and
as one of the five "Ministers of
State," a member of the Inner
NONE OF the Communists is
expected to play any role in
shaping of France's foreign or de-
fense policy. The sources recalled
that Communists served in
France's post-war government
headed by Gen. Charles de Gaulle
and have also participated in
Socialist coalitions in NATO-
member states such as Iceland
and Portugal.
Fitterman was born to an im-
migrant Polish Jewish couple
which settled in the northern
mining city of Saint Etienne. In-
itially trained as an electrician,
he joined the Communist Party
when he was 18 and soon became
a full time party worker. He was
elected to the Politburo in 1976,
after having headed the party's
ideological training center, and
has served as member of Parlia-
ment for the last eight years.
