\rael to Proceed With Canal Project
xpite UN Vote Requesting Halt
JERUSALEM (JTA) Energy Minister Yitzhak
erman announced that Israel intends to proceed with its
an to build a canal between the Mediterranean and the
ad Sea despite a vote Monday in the United Nations
neral Assembly's Special Political Committee request-
Israel to stop all moves to build the canal.
THE VOTE on the Arab-sponsored resolution was
U-2 with three abstentions. Israel and the United States
1st the two negative votes. The Arabs contended that
pel, as an occupying power is not permitted by in-
pational law to change the physical nature of the terri-
Iry it holds. Part of the canal is to be built on territory
^ptured by Israel in the Six-Day War.
Berman said that Israel was willing to discuss the
roject with Jordan which has objected to the construc-
|on of the canal.

will be Sister Rose Thering, a
Catholic nun from Seton Hall

"During the past year, the
Soviet government has mounted
a vicious attack on all the Jewish
refuseniks. Soviet officials in-

In addition, Western tourists
have been harassed, interrogated,
searched and intimidated when
trying to visit refuseniks. The
Soviet media has also increased
their anti-Semitic propaganda. In
sum, basic human rights are sys-
tematically violated as the au-
thorities disregard their own na-

Local Leaders Elected At
JDC Annual Meeting
Alan L. Shuhnan and Heinz
Eppler of Palm Beach were re-
cently elected to the Board of Di-
rectors and Executive Committee
respectively, of the American
Jewish Joint Distribution Com-
mittee at its annual meeting in
New York.
The JDC, established in 1914,
is the overseas relief arm of the
American Jewish community. It
has provided rescue, relief and re-
habilitation services and pro-
grams for needy and endangered
Jewish communities in more than
50 countries around the world
since it was formed.
Henry Taub of Englewood,
New Jersey, was reelected Presi-
dent and will be serving his
second one-year term. Ralph I.
Goldman was reelected Execu-
tive V ice-President.
The JDC receives the bulk of
its funds from the United Jewish
Appeal and is also supported by
the Federations and Welfare
funds of the Jewish communities
of the United States. The budget
for 1982, adopted by the more
than 150 Jewish communal
leaders from all parts of the Unit-
ed States and Canada present at
the boarding meeting, was $39.5
million.
In a year-end report delivered
to the meeting by Mr. Goldman,
he reported that in 1981 the JDC
had provided a broad range of
services and programs which
aided over 500,000 men, women
and children in over 30 countries.
Dulzin's report triggered
critkkm from two committee
members. Dov Zakin of Mapam
and Fror Zeigerman of the
Liberal Party wing of Kikud
blamed the Jewish Agency for
the sharp drop m Soviet aliya.
They claimed that if eetion

taken two years ago, the Soviet

the easy excuse to tighten ant
restrictions on grounds tbst most
of the Jewtah emigres were going
to the U.S.
Although most committee
members supported the Jewish
Agency's new arrangement with
HIAS, committee chairmen
Mosbe Arena said that to avoid
the appearance of coercion, all
Jews leaving the USSR should be
flown directly from Moscow to
Israel. Failing that, be said, the
transit faculties in Vienna should
be closed down and all hnmi-
grants taken directly to ths sir-
port on arrival in Vienna.
The Campaign Cabinet of the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County
is pleased to announce that
Congressman Tom Lantos
will be keynote speaker at the
1982 Celebration Dinner
at the
Breaker*
on
Tuesday, January 26,1982
Those who were present at last year's event were thrilled and
moved by Elie WieseTs stirring remarks. We feel most
fortunate that Congressman Lantos. a survivor of the
Holocaust, has accepted our invitation this year. His record
in Congress proves him to be a knowledgeable and eloquent
spokesman for freedom and justice.
Please mark your calendar! Formal invitations will be forthcoming.

Mitterrand Blows
Hot, Cold About
Era of Good Feeling
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) President Francois Mitterrand de-
fined France's dual policy in the Middle East. He said it
calls for the recognition of Israel and the means to defend
itself but also recognition of the Palestinians and then-
right to a homeland with, eventually, state structures.
Interviewed on television. Mitterrand acknowledged that "we risk
(by this policty) being misunde'Stoi.d by both sides/But there is also a
good chance that both sides ill understand us and approve France's
position." he said.
The French President who is scheduled to go to Israel Feb. 10 the
first French head of state to visit that country declared, "I shall say
in Jerusalem what I have said in Riyadh," a reference to his recent trip
to Saudi Arabia. "The main thing is that France now invariably says
the same "to all parties.
THIS WAS seen as meaning that during his forthcoming visit to
Israel he will press for Palestinian self-determination, as he did in Am-
man, Algiers and Riyadh, but will also uphold Israel's right to inde-
pendence and security.
In his interview here, Mitterrand said: "Israel has the right to exist
. One cannot refuse it the means to existence. It needs security,
secure frontiers. Its rights rights have to be recognized. But in the
same way, I will say to my Israeli friends: You must recognize the
right to existence of the Palestinian people."
Metterrand said the nature of a Palestinian homeland was a matter
to be determined by negotiations between the parties concerned and
France is not a negotiator. He observed, however, "How can you,
without falling into illusion and lies say that there could be a Pales-
tinian homeland but with the Palestinians forbidden to create and de-
fend the state structure of their choice?"
MEANWHILE. Foreign Minister Claude Cheysson backed away
from some of his pro-Israeli statements and said that certain of his
declarations, made in Jerusalem earlier last week, had been "badly in-
terpreted" and do not accurately reflect French policy in the Middle
East.
Cheysson played down his earlier pro-Israeli statements after
several Arab state protested against the change in France's policy and
indirectly warned that their traditional friendship with France wu-
now at stake
The French government was also impressed by the violent reactior
of most of its European partners. Britain's Foreign Secretary Lord
Carrington and the Dutch and Belgian Foreign Ministers all voiced
their protests against what they termed France's unilateral change of
position without prior consultation with its European Economic Com-
munity (EEC) partners. French newspapers reported that Cheysson
was taken to task by both Carrington and West German Foreign
Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher with whom he met in Brussels. Both
claimed that France cannot speak on Europe's behalf or make any
commitments on its own.
SPEAKING AT a press conference in Brussels, Cheysson said that
the Venice declaration of June, 1980, is still valid "and fits us per-
fectly." Toning down his Jerusalem-made promise that there would be
no more European initiatives in the Mideast, the Foreign Minister
said the misunderstanding arose from "unclear terminology." Accord-
ing to him, the enice declaration "is not an initiative" and thus re-
mains valid.

Processing
Should be
Role Of
Israelis
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The outgoing director general of
the Absorption Ministry, Azriel
Waldman, has publicly proposed
that processing of would-be
immigrants abroad should be
handled by Israeli government
diplomats (consuls) and no longer
by Jewish Agency emissaries.
Waldman's proposal was
immediately attacked by
WZO Agency Chairman Leon
Dulzin who branded it "anti-
Zionist." Dulzin said it had been
raised periodically in the past,
but it ignored the special status
of the WZO in Jewish affairs.
In media interviews this week,
Waldman said this would be the
normal and natural situation.
Waldman reasoned that if
government officials instead of
WZO-Agency emissaries were
responsible for handling ohm,
there would be closer co-
ordination with the government
departments back home which
deal with the olim once they
actually arrive here.

Intelligence No Surprise
The report that Israeli intelligence was largely
the source of U.S. information that the Libyans had
been plotting the assassination of President Reagan
and other top-level Administration officials should
come as no surprise.
Israeli intelligence has often been the source of
information about the Arabs passed onto other
Western governments. In fact, Israeli intelligence
has in the past shared intelligence data about Arab
governments or Arab movements even with the
Arabs themselves.
There was for example, the assassination plot
against President Sadat in 1974-75 that Israel's
supersleuths uncovered and passed on to officials in
Cairo a gesture that helped encourage ties bet-
ween the two countries and ultimately led to what is
popular called the "Sadat peace initiative."
Before that, Israeli intelligence figured in Jor-
dan's successful struggle in the early 70's against the
takeover efforts of the Palestine Liberation
Organization an example of a good turn to which
King Hussein responded with his usual ineptitude.
Although it is not yet confirmed, there is at least
some evidence that Israeli intelligence knew of the
last plot against President Sadat that took his life on
Oct. 6 information on which Sadat failed to act
with sufficient seriousness of intent to break it up be-
cause, by his own admission, he was by then deeply
involved in metaphysical transcendalism; he had
come to confuse historic immortality and his own
apparent charisma with what assassins can do to
alter political fortunes by outright murder.
We permit ourselves to muse on this now be-
cause of the media's tendency to make light of the
latest Israeli intelligence as inaccurate at best or
even a ploy at worst to soften American public
opinion to some subsequent Israeli military action of
its own against the Khadafy regime should it be
forthcoming.
If the Reagan Administration is using Libya as
a smokescreen to dim the American public's view of
its own unhappy political and economic cir-
cumstances these days, that is one thing. But to
suggest that the Khadafy threat is without sub-
stance because Israel's intelligence was without sub-
stance is quite another unacceptable and danger-
ous conclusion.

In the school, all the children
will receive Hannukah candles
and sevivonim. All new students
will receive Hanukkiot to insure
that all of the students will be
able to observe the lighting of the
Hannukah candles in their own
homes. In making the presenta-
tion of Hannukah candles and
Hannukkiot to the children, Mr.
Levow indicated that even if
parents light Hannukah candles,
children may also do so. They
should be, in fact, encouraged to
do so. In addition, the traditional
School Hannukah program will
be held on Tuesday morning,
Dec. 22 at 10 a.m. This year, the
program will start with a Hannu
i kah service that will include the
reading of the appropriate Torah
portions for Hannukah from a
Torah scroll donated to the
School by Barry Kriacher, the
immediate past president of the
Day School.
"The entire thrust of this
year's Hannukah program," Mr.
Levow said, "is based on the
Rabbinic dictum that the purpose
of Hannukah and the Hannukah
candles is to publicize the
miracles performed by G-d
during the Maccabean revolt and
the re-dedication of the Temple in
Jerusalem."

By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) -
French Presidential
spokesman Pierre Bere-
govoy said that Foreign
Minister Claude Cheys-
son's visit to Israel has
enabled the two countries
"to normalize their
relations" and to make it
clear that "France is Is-
rael's friend" though it in-
tends to be "a friend of the
Arabs as well." Other
French officials, however,
were trying to play down
some of the Ministers
promises and commitments
given during his 24-hour
stay in Israel.
Officials, who did not want
their identity disclosed the
normal practice in France said
that Cheysson's promise that
there will be no more European
initiatives on the Middle East in
the near future should be taken to
mean "that neither France nor
West Europe should try and im-
pose its will but should support
locally produced initiatives."
THE OFFICIALS also said
that the 1980 Venice declaration
"is by now outdated." According
to these officials "Europe now
favors the creation of a Pales-
tinian state" and the Venice joint
statement by the 10 European
Economic Community ministers
was only an intermediary step in
this direction.

Before the Storm:
Britain Stunned

Kogter Claude Cheysson.
iTwentyfour hours after

^ Community's Venice dec-

[service.
|lt was also pointed out that
Secretary Lord Carring-
s likely to meet with
eysson at the NATO Council
eting, when there was bound
[be a sharp exchange of views.
Cheysson's statement came as
British government was still
reeling from the collapse of the
Arab summit in Fez, Mororcco,
and from the Israeli rejection of
the British-drafted terms for
joining the multinational peace-
keeping force in Sinai after Israel
withdraws from the area next
April.
ISRAEL LAST week
questioned the participation of
Britain, France, Italy and
Holland in the force because they
based their participation on the
Venice declaration which called
for the Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization to be associated with
the Mideast peace process.
However, Cheysson's state-
ment did not come as a total sur-
prise to British diplomats. The
first signs that Britain and
France differed acutely in their
approach to the Middle East
came with the election of Presi-
dent Francois Mitterrand. In
stark contrast to President
Valery Giscard d'Estaing,
Mitterrand quickly distanced
himself from the EEC's Venice
declaration.
More recently, Mitterrand
jumped the gun over the issue of
supplying troops to the Sinai
peacekeeping and observation
I force. During his visit to Wash-
ington in October, he made it
clear that France supported the
scheme and the whole Camp
David framework.
HIS STATEMENT came at
the very time that Britain in
the name of Europe was
dragging its feet over the Sinai
force and declaring Camp David
all but dead.
By saying in Israel that it is
the Venice declaration, rather
than Camp David, that is out-
dated, Cheysson showed that de-
spite their joint membership in
the EEC, France and Britain
have lost none of their traditional
rivalry over the Middle East,
even though neither of them is a
major power in that area.
The collapse of the Fez con-
ference punctured Britain's illu-
sion that it was possible for the
Arab world to formulate a com-
mon, if tentative, peace policy.
Cheysson's remarks have shown
that a viable European policy is
also out of reach.
FOR BRITISH Foreign Sec-
retary Lord Carrington, this is a
personal as well as diplomatic
setback. As the man who had
settled the long-running Rho-
Flatter.

six months presidency of the
EEC Council of Ministers in June
with high hopes.
Initially, he had hoped that, on
behalf of Europe, he could soften
the friction between America and
the Sovit Union which had flared
after the Soviet invasion of
Afghanistan. The Russians
treated his call for an inter-
national conference with disdain.
On nuclear disarmament, too,
Carrington played no part what-
soever in promoting the latest
Big Two negotiations.

turned more hopefully to the
Mideast. The Foreign Office, in a

izingly scoffed at the "in-
consistency" of American policy,
while boasting about Europe's

east. For the time being at least it
has stopped playing this record.

The Jtwiah Pldridion of Palm Beach County
jiemo Raised MK's Very Hot Tempers
By DAVID LANDAU
And GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA)
Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon assertes that the
JS. Israel memoran-
dum of understanding on
;rategic cooperation
eans "a real change" in
[srael's international
jnding. In a tough Knes-
et speech in reply to four
j)tions of no confidence,
Sharon accused the opposi-
tion of deliberately "per-
verting" the accord in order
criticize it. He called on
[he nation not to listen to
tie opposition "doom-
layers."
The four no confidence motions
irere submitted to the Knesset by
Labor Alignment, Commu-
jt Party, Shinui and Telem foi-
ling the signing of the U.S.-
grael memorandum of un-
derstanding by Sharon and Sec-
tary of Defense Caspar Wein-
erger in Washington.
The four Knesset factions con-
fended that the government gave
ay more than it received by
ng the memorandum; that
I was now what amounted to
I satellite of the U.S.; and that
fcrael was allied with the U.S.
ainst the Soviet Union making
frael a target of the USSR in
ny superpower confrontation.
KNESSET SPEAKER
kenachem Savidor decided to
elay the opening of the debate in
der to allow all Knesset
embers who wished to attend
debate to also attend earlier
the day the memorial services
&r David Ben Gurion at Kibbutz
Boker. Ben Gurion, Israel's
st Premier, died eight years
go.
| The Labor Alignment failed in
attempt to seek a court order
ullifying Savidor's decision to
egin the debate later.
Sharon, in his address to the
nesset. said the memorandum
understanding was "not an
^cord for the newspapers" and
nted (despite official U.S.
fenials) that there was a secret
art detailing concrete fields of
operation. "No one would
ct us to publish details of
many tanks or how much
^munition (is to be stored) or
i sort of intelligence (is to be
Changed)," Sharon said.
HE ACCUSED the opposition
"hypocrisy" in "pretending
at Israel's defense is solely
ainst the threat from the Arabs
nd not against the Soviet
Inion." Hurling invectives,
ppecially at "past generals who
tend to be statesmen" (a
to Labor Alignment
fnesset members Yitzhak Rabin
nd Mordechai Gur), Sharon said
he accord would pave the way
br Israel's inclusion in a regional
pategic framework led by the
IS. "against threats we cannot
ce alone." The framework he
flded, might in time become an
onomic regional grouping, too.
I Sharon contended that the ac-
pd could be invoked if the Sovi-
i intervened directly on the side
the Arabs in a future war
R* Iarad- or if they be1***1
10 Arabs in such a war. Labor
nesset members shouted from
seats that this was not so:
-accord specifies threats "from
"wide the region" only.
I Sharon shouted back that in
*>. Israel had withdrawn from
"?'"nder Soviet threat, and
i73 the Soviets had threat-
to intervene if Israel went
a to destroy the Egyptian
nd Army.
|h Whom are you trying to kid
Israel is not faced by a So-
military threat)?" Sharon
unted the Labor benches.
->hom are you pretending to
[ "now it hurts to be in oppo-
to see someone else
an agreement ... but
you will have to get used to this
frustration for a long time to
come. ."
THE ACCORD, he continued,
would "put an end to the hones of
our Arab enemies" that with the
help of the USSR they will even-
tually be able to annihilate Israel.
It was also "a basis for ties with
countries in Asia and Africa
which fear Soviet expansionism
. and you'll be hearing much
more on that in the future."
(Sharon recently toured several
African countries, according to
foreign reports.)
There was no importance in the
opposition argument that this
accord, unlike any previous pact
(even NATO, CENTO and
SEATO) specifically mentioned
the Soviet Union and was there-
fore a gratuitous and dangerous
provocation. Other facts spoke of
the threat of "Communism,
which was the same thing,
Sharon said.
He said the Taiwan-U.S.
defense pact "uses plain lan-
guage" which raised howls of
protest from the opposition that
he was reducing Israel to the
level of Taiwan.
Sharon for his part said the ac-
cord meant that after years of
often humiliating requests by
Israel for U.S. military aid, the
relationship had now been put on
a footing of reciprocity "as be-
tween equals."
HE "promised faithfully" that
when the accord came to be filled
out with practical content in
future negotiations, or actually
invoked, "only one guideline will
steer us: the needs of the defense
of Israel." The Israel Defense
Force would not be put to use for
non-Israeli interests, Sharon
insisted.
In his motion of no confidence,
on behalf of the Labor Align-
ment, Abba Eban termed the
government's handling of the
whole episode "hasty, un-
balanced and purposeless." He
mocked Sharon's claims (made in
Washington) that there was a
secret part to the pact. "It is so
secret that even the Americans
don't know about it," Eban said.
Sharon said in Washington
that the memorandum of under-
standing was "unclassified" and
presented to the press. He said
that the working groups and co-
ordinating councils which will
work out the U.S.-Israel agree-
ment may decide on details that
will be classified. Responding to
reports on Israel Radio that there
was a secret codicil to the agree-
ment, Sharon stressed that the
agreement was public and only
some of the later arrangements
might not be publicized.
Both Eban and Amnon Rubin-
stein (Shinui) pointed out that by
pledging to help Israel against
forces "outside the region," the
U.S. could be said to have actual-
ly weakened its commitment to
help Israel against its Arab
enemies ("the real enemy," ^id
Eban) inside the area.
THE SAME point was made
earlier in a press interview by
Minister Without Portfolio Yitz-
hak Modai. He said it had
"occurred to him" only after the
accord was signed. The accord
stated that it "is designed
against the threat to peace and
security of the region caused by
the Soviet Union or Soviet-
controlled forces from outside the
region introduced into the
region" and "is not directed
against any states within the
region."
Eban hit at the specification of
the USSR. The Americans, he
said, would be negotiating with
Soviets on arms control and other
tension-reducing measures. "We
will be left only with the aggres-
sive and provocative rhetoric" (of
the accord), he said.
Meir Wilner (Communist
Party) warned that Israel was
needlessly baiting the Soviet
Union which had never wavered
in its basic suport for the sover-
eignty and independence of the
1 Jewish State but opposed only its
occupation of Arab lands. "You
will yet have need of the Soviet
Union," Wilner warned. The ac-
cord, he said, made Israel a
primary "American base" for
attack against local Arab states.
YUVAL NEEMAN (Tehiya)
argued- that the accord would
necessarily constrict Israel's
freedom of military action in the
future. An action such as the raid
on the Iraqi reactor or the "Litani
Operation" would have to be ap-
proved first by Washington, he
noted. But such approval would
not be forthcoming, and if Israel
went ahead without it there
would be a confrontation with the
U.S., Neeman warned.
Both Neeman and Rubinstein
contended that by making an
overt enemy of the Soviets,
Israel's government had heed-
lessly endangered the fates and
future of the Soviet Jewish
commmunity. Rubinstein asked
whether this element was ever
taken into consideration in the
"hasty and faulty policy making
process."
Sharon, in his reply, did not
refer to this point. But he insisted
that the process had not been
hasty. There had been "innumer-
able discussions" at various poli-
cymaking levels over many
months, he said.

Blow the brass trumpet and the harshtongued horn:
Chant psalms of victory till the heart takes fire.
The Maccabean spirit leap new-born."

In that context, then, the edi-

simply put into law what already
exists in fact. It extended Israeli
"law, jurisdiction, and adminis-

where Israel exerted them al-

"all necessary steps" were taken
to deal with any flare-up as Arab
leaders in the main town on the
Golan, Majdal Shams, were call-

suffering from blood clotting. A hospital communique
stated that Begin was recovering from his injury, a
broken hip from slipping in his bathroom. He feels better,
has less pain and will be released from the hospital within
a week, the communique added.
Speculation regarding a possible deterioration in
Begin's health arose after doctors ordered the Premier to
refrain from receiving visitors from abroad. However, t
was expected that Begin would receive U.S. Secretary of
State Alexander Haig who visited Israel Sunday.

about the action taken at Prime
Minister Menachem Begin's
leadership in the Knesset. Begin,
who has been convalescing from a

Relations between the Reagan

he told the Parliamentary Justice Committee. "But I

BONN (JTA) The West
German state Prosecutor's Office
has resumed proceedings against
two of the former SS officials who
were found guilty in the trial of
Maidanek officials which took
place in Duesseldorf earlier this
year. The move against Hilde-
gard Laechert and Hermann
Backmann was taken because the
prosecution feels that the court
had imposed relatively low prison
terms 12 and 10 years,
respectively.
Originally the prosecution
hoped it would succeed in getting
life imprisonment for both SS
officials and, as a result, omitted
some important points in its bill
of indictment. These points will
now be raised.
Since the verdicts against the
Maidanek officials were handed
down last July, eight of the ac-
cused have appealed the verdicts.

Rapps said the names of the
parents and the children were
being withheld to protect their
privacy pending the forthcoming
re-hearing of the custody issue.
He said the two boys ran away
from their father to rejoin their
mother. The father reclaimed the
younger boy but the older one
remained with the mother.
. WHEN THE mother refused
to surrender the older child, the
father moved before Stecher to
'regain custody of the older child
and to have the mother held in
contempt of court for refusing to
obey the original custody agree-
ment.
The mother came to COLPA,
declaring that the father had
become non-observant since the
divorce, and was not adequately
providing for the religious
rearing and education of the boys
in accordance with the parental
separation agreement.
Rapps said the mother, in con-

regain custody of the older boy,

MyjSon,
Jewish mothers (and fathers) have traditionally boasted, and justifi-
ably so, about their children's professional achievements. But in how many
parts of the world can a Jewish parent proudly proclaim: "Meet my son, THE
KNIGHT!"
Certainly Scotland must stand in the forefront. In recent
years Scotland produced three Jewish Knights, two Jewish Mem-
bers o( Parliament, a Lord Provost (mayor), and the only Jewish
pipe-band in the entire world!
Of course Scotland's most famous product is scotch whisky.
And America's favorite scotch is J&.B. Wj carefully select the fin-
est scotches and blend them for smoothness and subtlety. The
result is why we say that J&.B whispers.
Incidentally, you don't have to wait until your son becomes
a Knight or your daughter a Dame in order to enjoy J&.B. Any
s.n.chawil.do! J&R i whiSpCTS.

Reform Campaign
'Outreach' to Focus
on Conversion
BOSTON (JTA) The Un-
ion of American Hebrew Congre-
gations, representing 750 Reform
synagogues in the United St *s
and Canada, has launched a cam-
paign of "outreach" aimed at
"spreading the message of Juda-
ism" to non-Jewish partners in
mixed marriages, to the children
of such marriages and "to per-
sons of no religious preference."
The action was taken at the
UAHC 56th biennial convention
attended by some 4,000 delegates
here.
Rabbi Alexander Schindler,
UAHC president, hailed the
action of the convention, which
adopted a series of recommenda-
tions offered by a joint task force
of the UAHC and the Central
Conference of American Rabbis,
the association of Reform rabbis,
headed by David Belin, a Des
Moines lawyer, and Rabbi Max
Shapiro of Minneapolis, Minn.
THE TASK force was formed
following an address by Schindler
to the U A HC board of trustees in
December, 1978, calling on Re-
form congregations to become
"champions of Judaism," by
taking "affirmative action to
make Judaism available to those
within our midst and to the un-
churched across America."
Following the vote, Schindler
said that the UAHC would move
promptly in three main areas to
implement the task force recom-
mendations to:
1. welcome recent converts
so-called "Jews by Choice" -
into Jewish communal life;
2. encourage non-Jewish
spouses in mixed-marriages to
become involved in synagogue
activities, and raise their children
as Jews; and
3. organize reading rooms and
to provide educational materials,
including books, pamphlets,
video tapes and films, to make
information about Judaism
available to "all those who have a
spiritual hunger."
AN out-reach program guide,
just published by the UAHC,
gives a description of the
"target audience" for such a pro-
gram to atrract non-Jews.
It cites those individuals who
are not members of any religious
group and who see themselves as
having fallen away from the rel-
igion into which they were born.
"We do not envision a
'missionary' campaign of knock-
ing on doors or doing any aggres-
sive solicitation," the UAHC
program guide states. "We are
not trying to win people away
from their religions, nor are we
offering the one true path to
salvation."

Giscard d'Estaing
remembering bad times
The now Socialist Administra-
tion, with the exception of
Cheysson's statements in Beirut
last August has up till now
avoided the pitfalls into which
former Gaullist Administrations
have fallen and which cost Gis-
card his electoral defeat. During
his visit to Beirut, Cheysson
called ^ for Palestine Liberation
Organization participation in
future Mideast peace talks and
affirmed that the Palestinians
should be given the opportunity
for self-determination. Also dur-
ing his visit, Cheysson met with
PLO Chief Yaair Arafat.
In spite of the new "Mitter-
rand manner," France's policy
remains basically the same. It is
warmer towards Israel and more
understanding of Israel's needs
but, as it became apparent in last
month's joint declaration with
Britain, Holland and Italy over
the Sinai peacekeeping force, it
continues to subscribe to the
Venice Declaration issued by the
European in June, I960 which
calls for the PLO's inclusion in
future peace talks and the
eventual creation of a Palestinian
state.
WHAT Mitterrand plans to
say, in varying terms Mitter-
rand more tactfully, Cheysson .
more harshly is that France
continues to support the Camp
David agreements but believes
that these accords will soon reach '
the end of the road and new
avenues should then be explored.
In spite of Mitterrand's warm
words and sincere friendship, it is
at this stage that serious differ-
ences will develop in the relations
between the two countries as Is-
rael is convinced that the Camp
David agreements should be the
basis for all future peace develop-
ments and adamantly refuses to
PLO role in the
consider a
process.
France, together with prae-
tically all of Western Europe, it
already calling for the opening of
a new diplomatic chapter after
Israel's withdrawal from Sinai
next April. It was Cheysson's
' task, during his visit to Israel, to
explain that France's backing for
this policy is not hostile to Israel.

He added that only the Eisen-
hower Doctrine of the 1950s made
a more specific reference to a pos-
sible enemy by stating that the
U.S. would protect Israel against
"aggression by any country ruled
by Communism." The fact is, he
pointed out, that Israel is the
first country in the history of
modern diplomacy to tie itself in
a formal agreement with the U.S.
specifically directed against the
Soviet Union.
FORMER PREMIER Yitzhak
Rabin was critical of the
memorandum because "one un-
derstands from that document
that Israel has given her a prior
agreement that the Israel De-
fense Force will be operated in
the Middle East under circum-
stances so far unknown, for pur-
poses that are not directly for the
defense of Israel. In return we did
not get anything new. Further-
more, the U.S. cannot under its
Constitution act military unless
this action is for the purpose of
defending America or American
citizens."
Rabin's criticism was under-
stood to refer to the clause in the
memorandum dealing with mili-
tary cooperation between the two
countries, joint military exercises
and acting "cooperatively and in
a timely manner to deal with" the
threat to peace and security of
the region.
The new agreement is not a
mutual security pact such as the
U.S. has signed with many coun-
tries, but not with Israel, in the
past. It does not commit the U.S.
to come to Israel's protection but
lonly to cooperate with Israel
against Soviet and Soviet-con-
trolled forces posing threats to
the region.
FORMER CHIEF of Staff Lt.
Gen Morderchai Gur said that
"the way that agreement has
been worded makes Israel into a
sort of American satellite." Gur,
a leading Labor Party member of
the Knesset, told Israel Radio
that Washington was trying to
preserve a low profile on all mat-
ters concerning Israel's security
in the Mideast whicle emphasiz-
ing the service it could obtain
from Israel in the conflict be-
tween the U.S. and the USSR.

"There is no sense in Israel
becoming a confrontation state
for the Soviet Union by turning
into an American arsenal," Gur
said. "The agreement is not for
the good for Israel."
The memorandum of under
standing was also assailed by
Communist Party Knesset mem
ber Toufik Toubi. He charged
that the memo was tantamount
to a declaration of war against
the Soviet Union and that it
would expose Israel as a military
target in the case of a confronta-
tion between U.S. and the USSR.
BUT Dr. Eliahu Ben Elissar,
former Israeli Ambassador to
Egypt, told Israel Radio that
Israel was not going to fight for
the United States and the agree-
ment does not threaten Israel's
Arab neighbors. "The agreement
is not aimed against our Arab
neighbors but we need the U.S.
against the Soviet Union," he
said. The agreement states thai
the strategic cooperation "is nol
directed at any states within the
region."
The issue was also raised in the
Knesset Security and Foreign
Affairs Committee which met
with Chief of Staff Gen. Rafael
Eitan. Eitan referred all ques-
tions dealing with the memoran-
dum to Sharon, who ended his
trip to Washington earlier than
planned to take part in a Knesset
debate tomorrow on this issue.
Both the Alignment and the
Communist Party intend to sub-
mit motions of no confidence in
the government following the
signing of the memorandum.

Studying Torah As A Community
by RABBI
JOEL L. LEVINE
Temple Judea
President, Rabbinical
Council of Palm Beach County
Rabbi means teacher. Our
primary responsibility as rabbis
is to teach Torah. Our officers.
Rabbi Joel Chazin, vice
president, and Rabbi William
Shapiro, secretary, are working
with me and with The Rabbinical
Council in planning a Torah
assembly, Sunday morning,
March 7 at the Hyatt Palm
Beaches. We hope that every
synagogue and Jewish organiza-
tion will be well represented. Men
and women will be able to study
with a nationally respected
scholar in stimulating lectures
and seminars.
Seminars will be conducted by
all the rabbis of our community
and will focus on the issues raised
during the lectures. We are
presently reviewing topic selec-
tions and available scholars. I
greatly respect the rabbis of our
community. Their input is essen-
tial for a memorable program.
The name of our guest scholar as
well details and costs to you will
Rabbi Joel L. Levine
be announced in early January.
Meanwhile, save the date, March
7, for a morning which will surely
enhance the Torah quotient of
every participant.
Part of my plan as president of
The Rabbinical Council is to
introduce the unaffiliated of our
community to our outstanding
rabbis in a teaching situation.
Too often we encounter our
rabbis serving on committees or
delivering the invocations and
benedictions which are part of or-

ganizational life. The Torah
assembly is a wonderful way to
showcase the rabbinic talent of
the Palm Beaches. It is about
time that we take a morning out
from our schedules and take ad-
vantage of scholarship combined
in one location, available simply
by purchasing a modestly priced
ticket.
Additional projects of The
Rabbinical Council include
working closely with our
synagogue leaders in improving
and enhancing congregational re-
lationships, raising the commit-
ment level of our community to
Israel through supporting
Federation and Israel Bonds, and
supporting an active Kashrut
commission. The Greater Palm
Beaches is in the process of
becoming a vibrant Jewish com-
munity. Rabbinic participation
and input is essential in com-
munity life. We will in the near
future have two additional
needed community facilities a
nursing home and a greatly ex-
panded Jewish community
center.
The great lessons of Judaism
which we can leam from our
rabbis are available every day.
We can translate their teachings
into a Torah based methodology
which will help our community
grow in an intelligent and
thoughtful manner.

Women May Wear Prayer Shawl
Conservative rabbis have
rased the view that there is
irohibition in Jewish religious
against women wearing
rershawls. One of the re-

question was discussed in
te articles by Rabbi Martin
|dberg of Santurce, Puerto
, and Rabbi Jonathan Porath
irk, N.J., in the fall issue of
ok, the quarterly publica-
| the Women's League for
vative Judaism.
WBERG declared that
I study of Halachic
seems to offer a clear
etical possibility of women
5 on tallitot and, according
view, they may even be
i to do so."
Indberg also examined the
Iment of Beged Ish, the
i ban against the wearing of
of men's clothing. He
rted that "this line of argu-
s not used in the tra-
|nal sources against the use
tallit by women, with one
br exception. Custom today
Imade the tallit a male pero-
\e but there is nothing in the
pent itself which makes it ex-
rvelvmale."
He said the Rabbinical Assem-
bly's law committee had con-
sidered the matter in September,
1978 and concluded "there is no
prohibition against a woman
wearing a tallit." He said the idea
of designing a special tallit for
women was one some committee
members wanted to recommend
to the Women's League. So far,
he added "no such tallit has come
into popular use."
PORATH WROTE that our
traditional sources, more out of
unfamiliarity with this practice
than anything else, counched
then- objections to women
wearing a tallit in social and
cultural, rather than Halachic
terms."
He declared that "Jewish tra-
dition views clothing as bearing
a message. To the rabbis, one's
garments reflect a sense of 'tzini-
yut,' modesty and humility
before God." He said that by
putting on a special garment,
Jews separate "the holy from the
mundane."
Porath suggested that the
question for Conservative
Judaism was not "May women
bedeck themselves in special
prayer garments?" but rather
"What should the appearance of
women's special garment

that
be?"
He suggested that, through
custom and use, the traditional
prayershawl used in synagogues
is a male prayer garment. He
added that "we should not want
our young girls and women to be
taught from infancy and Bat
Mitzvah on, that 'maleness' or
being like one of the boys' is the
model for women's behavior and
practice."
PORATH advocated a special
prayer garment for women, with
four corners and ritual fringes,
but with a different appearance,
reflecting "women's sensitivity
and eye for design, pattern and
color." He expressed the hope
that "this kind of parallel reli-
gious development" would do
much to help resolve the "ten-
sion" created by a number of
controversies Conservative Ju-
daism is facing "regarding the
proposed expansion of women's
ritual participation and role."
The most divisive issue cur-
rently is whether women should
be admitted to the rabbinical
school of the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America. After
several years of sharp debate be-
tween the Rabbinical Assembly,
which has repeatedly endorsed
the idea of Conservative women
rabbis, and some key personali-
ties in the seminary faculty who
strongly oppose it, the issue has
been shelved for the time being.
Some of the women who had
hoped to become Conservative
rabbis have since enrolled in the
Reform and Reconstructionist
seminaries.

Return Rate High in Israel
Prison System
By JENNIFER FREY
Like any resident of Kibbutz
Bet Hashita, Mo she is provided
by the kibbutz with an apart-
ment, clothing and an allowance.
But Moshe is different from
every member of Bet Hashita in
an important way: Moshe is an
ex-convict. A "special guest" of
Bet Hashita, a mile away from
his former residence Shatta
Prison in the Jezreel Valley
Moshe works daily at the kib-
butz's metal factory. He dis-
covered Bet Hashita while part of
the Shatta-Bet Hashita Project,
an innovative program designed
to assimilate ex-convicts into Is-
raeli society.
A decade ago there were 1,200
Israeli men behind bars. Now
there are almost 6,000 prisoners
with a recidivist rate of 60 per-
cent.
Conditions in Israeli prisons
have been in the public eye since
they were exposed on television
three years ago. They are over-
crowded sometimes there is
less than 7.5 feet of living space
per prisoner and poorly
ventilated. Some are without
beds. Last July, the Prison
Service Investigating Committ*?
described conditions as "so
serious, subhuman, and on the
verge of explosion that (there's a
need) for a revolutionary change
in the way prisons are run."
THE SHATTA-BET Hashita
project began at the initiative of
the Prison Service in June, 1660.
The philosophy: get prisoners
like Moahe out from behind ban
and into constructive work in the
community. Candidates for the
program include prisoners who
received sentences of less than a
year, and who have demonstrated
good behavior.
At first the kibbutzniks were
reluctant to let prisoners come to
their home. "When you face
something like that for the first
time it's frightening," explained
Ron Sarig. Bet Hashita's
secretary. "Before you meet
them, you might think they have
horns. But soon we came to
know them as individuals and
have formed some wonderful re-
lationships," he added.
So far, there have been no in-
cidents of prisoner misbehavior.
Of course, these prisoners are not
Israel's most dangerous men.
Nobody convicted of murder,
sexual assault, terrorism, or drug
abuse may be accepted into the
program. Most of the 10 pris-
oners presently making daytime
trips to Bet Hasita are serving
time for armed robbery.
THE VISITORS either work
in the kibbutz metal factory like
Moahe, or in the olive groves.
They are paid according to the
Histadrut wage scale with one-
third of the money going to the
prisoner's family, one-third to his
savings and one-third to his
pocket. While prison labor earns
the convict about a dollar a day,
kibbutz work can bring in up to
$400 a month. Perhaps more im-
portant than the money, the kib-
butz helps the prisoners find
work when they finish serving
their terms.
One prisoner, Yitzhak 28, is
serving his third sentence for
armed robbery. The experience
of working on the kibbutz, he
feels, will help him stay oat of
prison in the future. "They trust
me here and it feels great," ha
says.
Yitzhak strolled through the
kibbutz one evening and waa
stopped in front of the dining
room by an elderly veteran of the
kibbutz who patted him on the
back and chatted for a few
minutes. Afterwards Yitzhak
said. "He's 80 years old and still
working. So there's no reason I
cant still work."
YITZHAK CALLS his
adopted brother "my brother." During the past ten years
He feels comfortable going in and Moshe has spent only s few

ALBANY, N.Y. (JTA) -
Boris Chernobilsky, a Soviet Jew
who successfully eluded Russian
authorities for four months, was
arrested in Moscow on Thanks-

Assemblyman Richard Gottfried
(D.-L., Manhattan).
"I am greatly saddened by the
news of his arrest," said Gott-

nobilsky's capture. "Yet Mr.
Chernobilsky's heroic and un-
precedented success at evading
Soviet authorities for so long

freedom-loving people every-

that Chernobilsky be released
