a statement keynoting the meeting, Fromer noted
it the Fort Lauderdale community currently numbers
men, women and children, asserting that "such a
mlation not only has needs; it is needful of self-
pression in all the areas of its concerns."
[HE LISTED THESE concerns as Israel, Soviet Jewry,
iti-Semitism and anti-Semitic manifestations, social

justice, Christian evangelism and its conversionary efforts
among Jewish young people, inter-marriage, and what he
said was "our deep concern that Fort Lauderdale may be a
place in which diverse groups can live together in harmony
or, at least, without hostility and friction."
Declaring that "Jews in America have always been
concerned with their place in this society, and with the
general society's regard for and appreciation of the Jew as
an equal before the law, and as entitled to equality of
opportunity over the whole spectrum of social, economic
and political organization and activity," he added: "These
remain our concerns today. No group as large as the Jews
of Fort Lauderdale could possibly have lesser concerns."
Establishment of the five groups, which will be sub-
committees of the Community Relations Committee, or
CRC as such a committee is popularly known elsewhere in
the country, was followed by these other actions and
1.) Agreement to send a telegram to President Carter
and Secretary of State Cyrus Vance noting the Jewish
Federation's dismay and disapproval of the
Administration's coddling of the Plaestine Liberation
Organization (PLO) (See this page for texts of
telegrams to the White House, State Department,
Senators Chiles and Stone, and Congressmen Burke
and Rogers).
2.) Disclosure that the High Holy Day closing of
public schools in Broward County was at the
initiative of the Fort Lauderdale Jewish Federation
and that this is the only county in the State of Florida
where the schools are closed for Rosh Hashanah and
Yom Kippur. The CRC agreed to a follow-up that will

leadership necessary to fulfill
these needs. This year we have
adopted the largest national
UJA /Federation fund-raising
goal in history. If our region is to
succeed in doing its share to meet
the UJA's $700 million goal, we
must have a well-informed,

Aryeh Nesher, director of UJA's

A Bit off Advice Goes A Long Way
TEL AVIV When two
young people from different
backgrounds suddenly face
conflicting norms: when in-laws
take sides in a couple's quarrels'
when generation gaps cause
tension; when children drift into
bad company: when crises
threaten the breakdown of an
Israeli family where would one
apply for help?
Some 1,200 families a
yearfrom Metullah to
Eilat find at least partial an-
swers in help offered to them by
the Israel Family Counselling
Association in Tel Aviv. The
association was founded in 1964
as a pilot project providing part-
time psychiatric consultation by
a Kupat Holim volunteer staff.
UNTIL A FEW years ago it
was housed in the Kupat Holim
building but now has its own
quarters, and is staffed by a team

MARRIAGE counselling is an
important aspect of the work.
Israeli couples get married too
young, they are too dependent on
their parents; they have no idea
before embarking on it what
married life is all about. As a
result, when they come face-to-
face with harsh reality they find
themselves unable to cope, she
In 1975. the largest group that
applied for treatment at the
Association was the group
married over 10 years, the second
largest was in the one to five
years after marriage category.
Length of treatment varies from
one to three sessions, going up to
several months or even a year, of
once-a-week consultations.
Clients pay according to ability
and are seen by professional staff
as well as student social workers,
depending on the case. The
service has morning as well as
afternoon and evening hours so
as to allow for maximum number
of persons to be treated.
"Many of the problems in the
Israeli family have to do with
changing roles of its members,"
Mrs. Golan said. "Both the
husband and wife feel they are
giving more than they are get-
ting. And when I hear both sides.
I think each of them has a point.
Women complain all too often
that they are not given
recognition for all they do: that
their husbands are not af-
fectionate enough. Sabras are
often scored for not showing their
feelings. There is often lack of
communication that is hard to
A MAN MAY complain that
his wife uses the children as an
excuse for not letting him come
near her. Often, she is angry
about other things and punishes
him in this way. A woman will
come to the social worker with
the complaint: "I am nothing but
a housemaid for him. he takes
everything for granted. I am
tired of being a slave."
One woman came to the clinic
with the story that she could not
longer bear to go on with the
marriage. "I stood for a lot." she
said, "but when he began beating
the children, that was too much.
She wanted a divorce, but did not
know how to go about getting it.
The social worker asked her why
she could not face her husband
with her complaints. He had been
spending a lot of time away from
home, she was sure he was in bad
company and feared he might be
drifting into crime.
When the social worker
suggested that the woman bring
her husband to the clinic, she said
she did not know how to get him
to come. She should keep blame
out of her voice, she was advised,
when talking to him. She could
tell him it was she who was in
need of help for her problem, that
she was after all the mother of his
children, that she wanted to do
the best by them. Surprisingly,
he agreed to come.
"WHEN HE came to the
service, we found he had severe
personal problems," the social
worker relates. "He began to
open up. first in private sessions
then in the presence of his wife.
By having them discuss their
problems together, we opened a
channel of communication. They
are in for a long treatment, but
we hope their marriage can be

integral part of comprehensive

way off; but the Israel Family
Counselling Association has
taken a step in this direction.

cooperation with local agencies, a
wide range of health, educational
and social services for the aged,

WHY? Because, as UJA
General Chairman Leonard R.
Strelitz says, UJA is more than a
campaign for dollars." True, in
its 39-year history this vast net-
work of caring has pumped
almost 84 billion through the
Jewish "lifeline." But, as Irving
Bernstein, UJA executive vice
chairman, reaches out to Jews as
he moves around the United
States with a fervor that could be
described as evangelical, he
explains, "UJA the Jewish
lifeline is a concept for living."
"It is the end of that pitiful
period of the voyages of the
damned," Bernstein declares.
"UJA says 'We are One in
mind, one in body, one in spirit.'
Is it just another slogan or is it
WHAT UJA says in "come, be
part of us, be part of our com-

From the aloneness of each in-
dividual dream comes collective
will and strength. Out of will and
strength comes com-
munity... and community makes
'We Are One' not a slogan, but a
Jewish way of life."
Are American Jews becoming
more affirmable? Is UJA a
stepping stone to Jewish iden-
tity? As Campaign "78 "30
Years of Partnership" begins,
the question will be put to its

Begin Appointment of Former
Irgunist Comes as Surprise
TEL AVIV (JTA) Some Israeli circles expressed sur-
prise at Prime Minister Menachem Begins appointment of
Amichai Paglin, a former Irgun comrade-in-arms, rather than a
professional military man as his special advisor on combatting
terrorism. The post was previously hald by Gen. Rehavem
Zeevi who resigned last May.
Paglin, in his early 50s, served as operations officer of the
Irgun Zvai Leumi, the underground fighting group commanded
by Begin before the end of the, Bcoash Mandate 30 years ago.
HE HAS LIVED IN obscurity since then as the operator
of a family metals workshop near Tel Aviv. He was in the news
briefly in 1972 after his arrest on suspicion of complicity in an
attempt by the Jewish Defense League to smuggle arms from
Israel to the U.S. and Europe for a war on Arab terrorists.
Paglin was arraigned, pleaded not guilty but was never

THE RELEASE of G. Gordon
Liddy from prison for
"maMterminding" the Watergate
break-in sent the entire nation
scurrying to the college
Liddy, a common criminal
made even commoner because he
was caught in the act of his
crime, can quote from the classics
with the sure rapid-fire of a Hank
Aaron whose homerun balls once
sent outfielders racing to the
scattered comers of their fielding
positions hoping to contain his
i devastating clout.
general press, and then with
Barbara Walters of ABC-TV,
Liddy explained the "why" of
Watergate to the beat of a
Machiavelli: '"Fiat voluntas
tua' 'Thy will be done'," the
declaration of the devoted
lieutenant to his prince, who
never asks for explanations of
orders, pledging instead to carry
them out, whatever they may be.
Of John Dean, who blew the
whistle on the Watergate
operation, Liddy said that "He is
qualified fully to sing the title
role in Der Rosenkavalier," an
early 20th century opera by
Richard Strauss in which, Liddy
obliged his befuddled in-
terviewers. "The title role is sung
by a woman."
When Barbara Walters asked
Liddy if he considered Richard
Nixon to be a tragic figure. Liddy
replied that yes he did, with the
proviso that one define tragedy in
the classical Greek sense of the
"HELP ME," Walters said,
frankly confessing her ignorance
in this matter precisely as she
had done in the case of Liddy's
Machiavellian ploy. Like a
churlish schoolmaster, he
All of which reminded me of
Liddy's only intelligible comment
- to reporters on the steps of his
prison the day before, when he
quoted from the German
philosopher, Nietzsche who.
speaking of adversity triggered
by public ignorance, declared:
"Es macht mich staerker."
This is some pretty high
falutin stuff: Machiavelli,
Richard Strauss, the
epistemology of classical Greek
tragedy, Nietzsche. Even when
he is intelligible, who can un-
derstand him?
Suffice it to say about his
riddles that, disparate though
their sources may be. they show a
remarkable uniformity of in-
tellectual allegiance in the Liddy
ALL OF his references deal
with the source of human
strength as he sees it, the will,
whose purpose it is to act upon
the command of a higher will, the
will of the ruler, without
Or else, as in the case of his
references to John Dean and
Richard Nixon, the failure to
fulfill the purpose of the will
because of some uncontrollable
outside force.
In this sense. Dean ratted
because he is a woman (NOW
members take note), meaning he
is weak and unreliable. And
Nixon is tragic because of the
classical Greek "flaw" in his
nature which gave rise to his
reversal of fortune-to his
metamorphosis from prince to
puppet on the David Frost show.
IN A word, for Liddy the
proper man does not initiate
actions of his own free will
because there is no free will. The
proper man merely reacts. He
performs some duty in response
to a force outside himself. If the
force is good, then the reaction is
good. If it is bad, he winds up in
prisonor is asked to vacate the
White House.
Only the weak man, in Liddy's
terms a woman, initiates actions
and such a man is weak because

stone, not the higher interests
say. of some prince-because he
thinks, above all things, that he
can overcome what Adolf Hitler
called the rule of nature.
What I object to in all of this

Katzir Explains His Pardon
Of Imprisoned Ex-Banker
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
The beginning of the year 5738
finds the Jews in the Soviet
Union more in need of our help
than ever. Although several
prominent refusniks received exit
visas last year, many more still
wait. Thousands of Jews are still
afraid to apply for exit visas after
witnessing the increased
harassment of those who do
apply to leave.
Six months have passed since
the arrest of Anatoly Sharansky,
the key Moscow activist accused
of treason. Sharansky has not
been seen, nor has he been
allowed a lawyer. Yet, there is
still hope since he has not been
officially charged. Please include

Chairman, South Florida
Conference on
Soviet Jewry
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
On August 5, Sen. Hubert
Humphrey quietly introduced a
bill which would permit United
States government credits for
sale of grain and other com-
modities to Communist states
irrespective of their emigration
policies. The bill would cir-
cumvent the law on the books
now. namely the Jackson-Vanik
amendment, that bars credit and
trade concessions until Moscow
allows more emigration.
We ask that you write your
Congressmen both here and up
North (if you have two homes)
and urge them to defeat this new
piece of legislation which is
considered extremely dangerous
for the Soviet Jewry emigration
movement. By allowing
unrestricted trade with long-term
credits at the taxpayers' expense
and favorable trade status to the
Soviets, the United States would
be giving up the most important
concession sought by the
Russians. This is the one issue
which could be used most ef-
fectively as leverage to ensure
compliance with the Helsinki
Accord and. hence, the right of
Soviet Jews to emigrate.
WHEREAS Sen. Humphrey
was quoted as saying: "I am
willing to sell anything they
cannot shoot back," we must
remind him of the classic guns vs.
butter argument. By making it
easy for the Russians to buy the
grain and goods they desperately
need, we solve one of their
greatest economic problems. We
thereby give them more time,
energy, and resources to spend on
developing guns and other lethal
items that can be used "to shoot
Sen. Humphrey has long been
considered a great friend of the

most unfortunate lapse and wish
him a speedy recovery.

Gov'L Makes Policy
Not Cabinet
Begin Points Out
Minister Menachem Begin in-
dicated in a series of interviews
broadcast and published recently
that he would not countenance
independent expressions of policy
by members of his Cabinet. There
is no policy of individual
ministers, there is a policy of the
government, he told interviewers
when asked about recent state-
ments by Minister of Agriculture
Ariel Sharon.
He also served notice on the
Gush Emunim that while they
may criticize the government, the
settlement program will be
carried out only according to
government decisions.
THE ISSUE of settlements in
the occupied Arab territories has
brought Israel under severe
criticism from the United States
since the Begin government took
office. Sharon, who heads the
Ministerial Settlement Com-
mittee, was quoted by news-
papers as saying that several new
settlements were established in
secrecy on the West Bank.
He subsequently denied
making that statement. He was
also quoted as saying that Israel
would never withdraw from the
Golan Heights although Begin
has indicated to President Carter
Israel's readiness for certain
withdrawals from the Golan in
the framework of a peace treaty.
The Prime Minister's interview
remarks were apparently directed
at Sharon. Several Likud
ministers have privately ex-
pressed the view that it was time
to crack down on the outspoken
Agriculture Minister.
HOWEVER, government sec-
retary Arye Naor told newsmen
after a recent Cabinet session
that there had been no discussion
of the settlements question and
no criticism of Sharon's state-
ments on that issue.
Begin s remarks on the Gush
Emunim indicated that he would
restrain that militant group al-
though he shares its contention
that the West Bank is not oc-
cupied territory but a "liberated"
pert of Israel.
The Gush have complained re-
cently that the government has

With respect to peace nego-
tiations, Begin said the time for
interim agreements was past.
What Israel wants now is full
peace in accordance with historic
precedents including diplomatic
and consular relations, he said.
He stated that his recent visit
to Rumania was more than cere-
monial but refused to go into
details. He also defended Israel's
relations with South Africa. He
said Israel was against racial dis-
crimination but as a small,
besieged nation, it cannot but
accept any hand stretched out to
ON THE issue of the Palestine
Liberation Organization, Begin
charged that the U.S. position
against any contacts with the
PLO began to erode last March
when Washington believed Prime
Minister Yitzhak Rabin would
head the next Israeli govern-
ment. Begin implied that it was
his ascension to office that gave
the U.S. pause on that issue. He
claimed that if the American Ad-
ministration had tried to pressure
Israel to accept PLO par-
ticipation at the Geneva con-
ference Israel would have said no
to the conference
President Ephraim Katzir issued
a statement aimed at clarifying
the pardon he has signed for
former banker Yehoshua Benzion
who was released from prison
after serving two years of a 12-
year sentence for embezzelment.
The President's statement said
that "under the law this is not a
pardon but rather a reduction in
punishment" and that he had
been considereing it during the
tenure of the previous govern-
ment because of the prisoner's
THE STORM of criticism that
greeted Benzion s release was
directed mainly at Prime
Minister Menachem Begin who
had recommended a pardon on
helalth grounds. It has not
abated in the wake of Katzir's ex-
The President's statement said
that the IL 25 million fine im-
posed on Benzion after his 1975
conviction for stealing $47
million from the Israel-British
Bank is still in effect although his
prison term has been reduced to a
suspended sentence.
But to date. Benzion has not
paid any part of the fine and has
not returned the embezzled $47
million or any part of it.
Political figures who accused
Begin of favoritism toward Ben-
zion were joined by leading
FORMER Supreme Court Jug.
tice Zvi Berinsohn warned that,
"pardon industry" is developing
"and things are getting
ridiculous. B
He said the power of pardon
should be used only in exceo-
tional cases and charged that k
was misused in the Benzion case
The pardon was also criticized
by Justice Yoel Sussman, presi-
dent of the Supreme Court who
had personally rejected Benzion's
appeals for pardon in the past.
Atty. Gen. Aharon Barak said
he had objected when he first
learned of Begins intention to
recommend clemency.
KATZIR'S statement said
that he baaed his decision on the
medical opinions of two senior
physicians who had treated Ben-
zion in prison and on the report of
a medical committee appointed
by the Health Ministry to inves-
tigate Benzion's condition.

He was sharply critical of the
United States which he accused
of failing to quash any possibility
of the PLO participating in
Middle East peace talks. He
charged that the U.S. was fos-
tering the illusion among Pales-
tinian refugees that they could
one day return to their places of
birth in Israel.
DAYAN claimed that "Jordan
is already prepared to integrate
the 500,000 refugees in its
territory, and Kuwait could do
the same for the 120,000 Pales-
tinians now earning good wages
He said "Israel is prepared to
absorb the 300,000 Palestinians
in the Gaza Strip who are for-
mally stateless at present
because Egypt has denied them
citizenship. They can choose
what nationality they want to
have Israeli or Jordanian.
Once these refugees have been
absorbed into the Arab lands,
Israel will be able to negotiate
with the 700,000 Palestinians on

are not refugees, in order to find
ways ot living together," Dayan
He said, however, that while it
was possible for Israel to initiate
talks with local Arab leaders on
the West Bank, there was no
room for such talks at the Geneva
conference which will be reserved
for negotiations between states.
THE PLO, he said, is a ter-
rorist organization and has no
right to attend a peace con-
ference. With respect to Israel's
position at Geneva, Dayan
asserted, "We are prepared to
listen and discuss any and every
suggestion but under no circum-
stances will we agree to a settle-
ment which lays the basis for Is-
rael's destruction."
Dayan said that Israel would
be prepared to give up certain oc-
cupied territories within the
framework of a peace settlement.
THE FORUM addressed by
the Foreign Minister was or-
ganized by friends and sup-
porters from various political
factions, including the Labor
Alignment and Democratic
Movement for Change (DMC) as
well as Likud. Dayan, a former
Laborite, has no party affiliation
at present.
The gathering marked the
inauguration of a "debating
society" which many Israeli
politicians fear may be the
launching pad of a new political
movement headed by Dayan.
Dayan himself denied this.

Daily Prayer Highlighted
During Holy Days Season
Chaplain, Jewish Federation
Tha b'shofar gadol Vchay'
ru'tay'nu, the daily prayer for
redemption from our oppressors
takes on additional significance
during the aseret y'may
t'shuvah. Our enemies, the
enemies of the Jewish People, are
never lacking. There are always
those who seek us harm, for our
very existence denies the truth of
their assertions about them-
Simply look at the Soviet
government or the Arab leaders
both proclaiming their kind and
benevolent treatment of all their
citizens while yet denying the
right of Jews to live freely. These
people and their kind throughout
the world are the natural enemies
of the Jewish People and of
Judaism. Throughout history we
have been hunted and haunted by
those who seek to diminish the
dignity of man and to imprison
his body and soul to do their
of Jewish history is how we
always manage to save a few
Jews from destruction and to
rebuild in a new place, then to
once again flourish and to
continue our contributions to the
enhancement of all mankind.
The ahofar has always sym-
bolized the call to renewal, of
courage and of dedication to do ,
God's will. The shofar reminds us
that the enemy without has been
unable to destroy the Jewish
People, but that the enemy
within the apathetic, un-
tutored, undedicated per-
sonalities housed in the bodies of
so-called Jews is the most
dangerous force pitted against
God's plan for suvival of the
The shofar sounds to recall
every Jew to the service of God,
even those who are nidchay amo
Yisrael, the straying members of
the people of Israel, for whom
God yearns to return to Him. Use
these yamim noraim to once
again hear the summons to
return to God as Jews dedicated
to Torah, Worship and actis of

PJC Announces Plans for Temple
300 Enroll at PJC School for Fall
Plantation Jewish
Congregation began the school
year with a record enrollment of
almost 300 students.
With a large staff of qualified
specialists the teacher-pupil ratio
is kept low to achieve a more
individualized approach to
learning at all grade levels. This
is especially true in the Hebrew
department where the Hebrew
specialists include Vivian Berner,
Luceil Caplan, Sima Dobken and
Rochelle Katz.
Rabbi Sheldon Harr will
continue as the director of the
religious school. Under his
guidance the curriculum will
stress the importance of
creativity in the presentation of
lessons along with the use of
audio-visual materials and arts
and crafts.
Fern Pelton, music specialist,
will help make music an integral
part of the religious school
program. The temple's youth
groups continue to be active and
this year will work under the
guidance of Glenn Golden. Many
adult education classes are
scheduled and will be taught by
Rabbi Harr.
Plans have been unveiled for a
12,000 square foot multi-purpose
structure for the Plantation
Jewish Congregation, to be
located on the south side of
Peters Road between University
Dr. and Pine Island Rd.
According to architect Steven
L. Cohen, the building will be
subdivided to provide sanctuary,
meeting areas and classrooms,
and is designed to conserve as
much energy as possible.
"BECAUSE all areas will not
always be used at the same time,
we are installing a zoned air con-
ditioning system so that only the
areas in use will need to be air
conditioned," he said.
The building also will incor-
porate solar heating panels,
supplied by Solar-Eye Products,
Inc. of Fort Lauderdale.
Cohen said the overall open
design of the building will keep
costs at a minimum while still
giving the feeling of a house of
ACCORDING to Rabbi Shel-
don J. Harr, the temple will be
the only permanent sanctuary in
West Broward.
"The Jewish population has
expanded significantly in the
area, particularly in Plantation,
Sunrise, Davie and Cooper City,"
he said. "This building is only the
first stage of an overall plan."
He already predicts that the
first building, occupying a 2.5-
acre site, may not sufficiently
serve the growing Jewish com-
munity, and said the con-
gregation has an option on an ad-
ditional five acres.
The entire structure will be
done in earth tones to com-
plement the architecture and
landscaping of the surrounding
area. The formal sanctuary will
have seating for approximately
250, which can be expanded into
the multi-purpose room to seat
almost 600. A library is designed
to also be used for committee and
board meetings, and classrooms
will house a daily pre-school and
religious school program.
"THERE will be a full-service
kitchen that will allow us to cater
our own sit-down dinners for up
to 300 persons," said Rabbi Harr.
"It also will be available
caterers of various functions"

Broward's Burke Told Wo Plans'
man J. Herbert Burke (R., Fla.)
has received a letter from VA
Administrator Max Cleland
stating for the second time that
the VA "has no plans to establish
an outpatient clinic in Broward
County, Florida."
Congressman Burke has been
working for the past 11 years to
obtain a medical facility for
Broward veterans. Recent com-
munity and veterans or-
ganization support coupled with
a July visit to Hollywood by VA
Administrator Cleland raised
hopes that the V A posture on the
matter was softening, but
Cleland s letter leaves little room
for optimism.
"AFTER discussing the prob-
lems presented to me by the
members of the Jewish War
Veterans and other local con-
cerned veterans organizations, I
have decided to increase the
staffing at the Riviera Beach out-
patient clinic so that services can
be expanded," Administrator
Cleland wrote Congressman
Burke promptly introduced a
bill, H.R. 8983, to provide for the
establishment of a Veterans
Administration outpatient
in Broward County.

design. In their present
production of "Bat Hamelech,"
the puppeteers make use of thirty
costumed puppets, most of them
four-feet tall.
Yair Nesher was born in
Kibbutz Nir David and lived
there most of his life until the
arrival of Sylvie. It was she who
gave him his interest in pup-
petry. Stewart Olesher, a
specialist in work with the
handicapped, originally came to
Israel from London on a two-
month scholarship and finally
decided to remain. While he
studied at the Hebrew University
he was assigned to study pup-
petry with Sylvie Nesher.
This will be his first ap-
pearance as a puppeteer with the
Neshers. It is his voice which is
heard on the dialogue recordings
which accompany the action in
"Bat Hamelech."
Before the Oct. 2 performance
at 1:30 p.m., lunch will be
available at noon. Tickets may be
purchased at the Jewish Com-
munity Center.

Prayer For
Jewish Kin ,
The Archbishop of Los Angeles,
Timothy Cardinal Manning, has
issued a letter to every priest in
the Archdiocese asking that on
Sunday, Sept. 18, "the prayer of
the faithful at each liturgy con-
tain a petitionary prayer for all
our Jewish brothers and sisters"
for the High Holy Day period.
In his letter Manning declared
that during the holidays of Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur, "we
extend prayerful blessings to our
brothers and sisters of the Jewish
THE CARDINAL suggested
as a model for the Sept. 18 liturgy
the following prayer: "We pray
that our Jewish brothers and
sisters be richly blessed by the
Almighty God as they celebrate
in faith those holy days. May
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur
bring peace, love, joy and justice
to their families and their com-
munities. We pray to the Lord.
Lord, hear our prayer."
He stressed that "added to
these sentiments of respect and
love, may we again acknowledge
that mission and witness for the
Catholic includes neither prosely-

can and should be a powerful
influence in halting the exclusion
of Israel, if it commits itself to
such a course and pursues it
vigorously. As one of the prin-
cipal sources of support for the
Olympic Games and as the host
for the 1980 Winter Games, that
course should be chosen.
"WE THEREFORE call upon
the U.S.O.C. to undertake every
measure possible to convey this
sentiment to the International
Olympic Committee and to those
members thereof who are now
engaged in this attempted ex-
clusion," the letter concludes.
Fascell said he was distressed
at the "politicizing of the
Olympic Games in recent years."

The Jewish SceneAt Home and Abroad
Rumanian Jewry: Pent-Up Longings AJCongress Slams Cuomo Statement
brief encounter with Rumanian
Jewry can be a haunting and
moving experience, as Prime
Minister Menachem Begin dis-
For this reporter, who accom-
panied the Prime Minister on his
official visit to Rumania the ex-
perience was even more heart-
wrenching because he, unlike the
Prime Minister, was able to
mingle freely and speak directly
with numerous Jews in
Bucharest, the capital.
THE ALL-pervading fear of
even the most chance contact
with foreigners which used to
daunt all Rumanians has ap-
parently eased somewhat in
recent years. There were many
opportunities for conversation,
although, of course, some sen-
sitive subjects were, by tacit
understanding, ruled taboo and
carefully avoided.
Chief among these was the
subject of aliya.
IT IS the desire of many of
Rumania's remaining Jews to re-
unite with their relations in
Israel. If the desire is present and
yet it has not been realized, the
reason, in most cases, is the
authorities refusal to grant an
exit permit. Hence the reticence
on the subject. Some of the cases
one comes across are painfully
At the same time there is a
very conscious awareness among
all the Jews one meets of how for-
tunate they are to be in Rumania
rather than anywhere else in the
Soviet bloc. For only in Rumania
could they maintain their reli-
gious and communal life, freely
and openly, actively encouraged
by the authorities.
Moreover, as one bearded and
sidelocked Jew from a provincial
town told me, every sign or sem-
blance of anti-Semitism is
quickly and forcefully slapped
down by the authorities and thus
a Jew who looks like a Jew need
have no fear to walk the streets or
travel on the trains even in the
most isolated areas. Every
Rumanian knows that a tangle
with them is to be avoided at all
costs even at the cost of fore-
going the joys of Jew-baiting.
IRONICALLY, it is this
relative freedom and well-being
that the Jews of Rumania enjoy
which itself is the major reason
why one basic freedom is denied
them: the freedom to leave. This
is because the government seeks
to prove to the world both
East and West that it is
genuinely tolerant of religious
practice and religious minorities
without this prejudicing its Com-
munist orthodoxy. It is yet
another pin with which to prick
the Kremlin.
But to achieve this, a primary
prerequisite is the existence of a
Jewish community upon which to
lavish the religious tolerance and
governmental care and
With an estimated 400.000
Rumanian Jews (Holocaust sur-
vivors some half a million were
killed by the Nazis) having
gradually left, mainly for Israel.
over the years, the government is
apparently concerned to retain
the remaining few thousands.
(According to Israeli estimates
the current figure is around
50,000. The Rumanian
authorities put it lower.)
THUS BEGIN'S plea for free
family reunion for all those who
wish it did not meet with an im-
mediately positive response from
President Nicolae Ceausescu and
his aides.
Nevertheless, Israeli sources
professed themselves not dis-
couraged. Apparently they took
heart from the sympathetic
hearing which the Rumanian
leaders gave to Begin on the
Jewish issue.
White House Gets ILS. Jewish News
In addition to the usual methods
of keeping informed on views of
leaders within the various seg-
ments of the American citizenry,
the White House has inaugurated
a weekly summation of American
Jewish news developments and
commentaries for the use of the
President's senior advisors.
The first such summary, dated
Aug. 15, contained a dozen legal
size pages. It reported on the
contents of various American
Jewish weeklies and the English-
language Jerusalem Post. The
Jewish Telegraphic Agency's
Daily News Bulletin is received

Israel Denies Lansky Visa
Israel has barred its gates to 76-
year-old Meyer Lansky, the
reputed underworld figure from
the United States, who was
refused immigrant status and
ousted from Israel in 1972.
Lansky told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, in a
telephone interview from Miami,
where he lives, that he wanted to
visit Israel "for a few weeks" on a
tour organized by his local B'nai
B'rith lodge.
Yoeef Burg, backed by the
State's top legal authorities, has
rejected Lansky's application for
a tourist visa. Burg held that the
deportation order issued against
Lansky five years ago was still
valid. A senior official here told
the JTA today that Lansky is
considered "one of the moat
dangerous man in the world."
The official aaid there waa
nothing arbitrary in the decision
to keep him out.
"Whatever line you draw.
Lansky would be on the other
side of it," he said.
The alleged gangland boss
came to Israel in 1971 as a
tourist. When the Interior
Ministry refused to extend his
tourist visa, he applied for im-
migrant status under the Law of
Return. The Ministry rejected
that request on grounds that
Lansky had "a criminal past
likely to endanger the welfare of
the State."
THE LAW OF Return denies
citizenship to known criminals.
After the Supreme Court refused
to overrule the Ministry's
decision, Lansky waa deported.
He waa arrested in the United
States for alleged tax evasion but
waa subsequently acquitted at a
trial in Miami.
American Jewish Congress
strongly criticized Mario Cuomo,
the losing candidate in New
York's primary election run-off
for the Democratic Party's
mayoral candidate in the
November elections for saying
that if the Jewish voters elect a
Jewish mayor Jews will be
blamed if things go wrong for the
city. Rep. Edward Koch, who is
Jewish won the run-off.
In an interview with the New
York Daily News. Cuomo, who is
Roman Catholic, was quoted as
saying that if Jewish voters
choose a candidate on the basis of
religion rather than on merit "I
think it will be bad for the Jews,
because everything that goes
wrong with the city they'll say,
yeah, there's that Jewish

Naomi Levine. AJCongress
executive director, said that to

She said the AJCongress finds
it "offensive" that Jewish voters
have been singled out on the
issue of ethnic bloc voting and
noted that over the years Jews
have voted for candidates of
"many different ethnic and
religious backgrounds.''
Continuing, Mrs. Levine. who
noted that the AJCongress
supports no political candidates,
declared: "Would it be 'bad' for
Blacks if Percy Suttor has been
elected or 'bad' for Puerto Rican
citizens if Herman Badillo has
won? Indeed, would it be harmful

Hills was apparently to the fight
there several years ago over a
low-income project for minority
groups in that predominately
Jewish area. Cuomo, at that time,
worked with many of the area
groups to mediate in the issue.
CJF Study Shows American Jews
Raised $6.9 Billion in 29 Years
NEW YORK In the 38-year
period from 1939 through 1976.
some $6.9 billion was raised by
central Jewish community or-
ganizations in the United States
in their annual campaigns, in-
cluding S3.7 billion raised bet-
ween 1967-76.
According to data contained in
the new study of Programs and
Finances of Jewish Communal
Services, published by the Coun-
cil of Jewish Federations (CJF),
1974 was the peak fund-raising
year, when Federations-UJA in
the United States raised about
$660 million, with some $360
million of the increase since 1970
directed towards the Israel
Emergency Fund.
THIS IS the eighteenth edition
of the CJF study on Jewish Com-
munal Services prepared by S. P.
Goldberg, assistant director of
CJF. It notes a $3 million in-
crease in grants from general
community United Funds for
local Jewish services from 1971-
75: a doubling of Jewish hospital
and community center income
from 1970-75, and an increase of
$35 million from 1970-74 in in-
come for care for the elderly.
Other significant data include
a total of $29 million raised in
1975 for Federation Endowment
Funds: and 1972 income totals of
$150 million for synagogues, and
over $150 million for Jewish
The study also indicates that
total income of Jewish communal
services from all sources was $2.8
billion in 1976.
THE STUDY also reveals
United Fund grants
allocated to local Jewish services
totalled $26.5 million in 1975;
Costs of administration for
Federations, covering fund-
raising, budgeting, planning,
central costs and other functions,
averaged 11 percent of total cam-
paign results, excluding New
York City, in 1976 a drop from
a prior level of 14 percent;
In 1973, Welfare Fund bud
get allocations for overseas needs
totalled 75 percent; an additional
two percent went to national
Vam and 23 percent to local
-% respectively;
UJA'a ahara rose to 83
percent in 1974. but decreased to
72 percent in 1976:
Federations provided some
$95 million in 1975 for local
services, excluding refugee care,
an increase of $33 million since
1971. The Consumer Price Index
had risen by about one-third in
this period.
Welfare Fund support for ser-
vices in Israel from 1948-76
enabled UJA to provide the
Jewish Agency with some $2.8
The CJF study also notes that:
The Israel Education Fund
of UJA received $45 million from
JDC use of UJA funds for its
programs in Israel amounted to
some $250 million from 1948 until
Israel Bond sales since 1961
in North America total $2.9
Immigration to Israel has
declined from 56.000 annually in
1972 to 20.000 in 1976.
The study indicates that
Federation support of local
services has increased since 1971
in the areas of refugee care,
Jewish education and community
relations, homes for the aged,
centers and employment services,
and family and child care, but
decreased for hospitals.
During 1974. 57 family
agencies with more than 700
professional staff members,
reported some 82.500 cases on
their rolls. Thirty-one percent of
the total were elderly people.
STATISTICS also show that
Federation and United Way
support of centers and youth
services rose 148 percent in the
last decade.
Federation support of Jewish
education in the United States
totalled $18.5 million in 1975.
Federations provided $17 million
m grants (excluding New York
City) for Jewish education during
the same year, or some 25 percent
of the total amount for local
services under Federation
