To Jewish Community Members
From the Executive Committee
Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale
One of the vital ways in which a Jew can manifest and ex-
Press a meaningful identification with Judaiam is by associating
with a synagogue. Nor is it only a matter of expressing one s
identity. Affiliation with a synagogue is also a positive way of
wiping to insure Jewish survival the survival of our
teachings, values, traditions and people. The synagogue has a
Place for each Jew and on several levels. It is a house of
Prayer, a house of study and a house of assembly. In it and
through it, one is able in a special way to feel and maintain a link
with the Jewish past and to help transmit the Jewish heritage to
the future.
No matter one's personal inclination or preference for this
or that movement in Judaism Orthodox, Conservative,
Reform, Reconstructionist, Havurah. Chabad there are syna-
gogues in Greater Fort Lauderdale that can be responsive to
ones deepest spiritual needs. To learn more about them, you
nay call any one of the synagogues listed in the Religious Direc-
tory elsewhere in these pages. Our good hope is that you will call

The Jewish Federation's 73-member UJA Mission to Israel
returned home two days ago (Wednesday) following a whirl-
wind, fact-filled, eye-filling and mind-expanding visit that took
it from the "Good Fence" at Metullah on the Lebanese border
to military outposts on the Golan Heights to the Yad Veshem
memorial park and the Western Wall in Jerusalem, to Tel Aviv,
Haifa, Masada, Beersheba, Sdom, and two on-the-spot fund-
raising meetings one each for men and women that
produced strong gift increases for what Charles Locke, the UJA

Eban told the leadership group
that strengthening the partner-
ship between the people of Israel
and American Jewry is a prime
task in the Jewish world today.
"WE HAVE restored Jewish
pride," he said. "We have given
the Jewish people a sense of
collective creativity. We have
caused Jewish history to flow
again into the central currents of
universal culture. We have ful-
filled our human vocation: to
bring hundreds of thousands of
our kinsmen out of humiliation
and death into the emergence of a
new hope. Israel is a people with
a future even greater than its
Referring to the 1978 campaign
as a tribute to the 30 years of
partnership between the Jews of
America and Israel, UJA General
Chairman Leonard R. Strelitz
said, "We're not just here in Or-
lando to launch an annual fund-
raising drive. Our campaign in
1978 represents the heartbeat of
Jewish life! And when we say
Campaign '78 will be a time of
celebration and a time of testing,
we are not just talking about a
campaign, we are referring to the
future of Jewish life the way we
would like it to be here in
America, in Israel, or wherever
Jews are vulnerable.
"So we must use this oppor-
tunity to make our own commit-
ment to the people of Israel,
matching our intentions with
strength and with action," Stre-
litz said.
IRVING Bernstein, UJA
executive vice chairman, told the
community leaders, "Your con-
cern for the quality of Jewish life
must be expressed 365 days a
year. We are the leaders of a vast
UJ A/Federation complex, the
only existing vehicle today that
can reach the totality of our com-
munity. There was a day when
Jews raised funds, but today
fund-raising raises Jews."
The Regional Conference,
planned by the Regional Cabinet
under the chairmanship of
Charles Rutenberg of Clearwater,
Fla., opened the region's 1978
UJA/Federation campaign. The
national campaign goal of $700
million is the largest in UJA his-
tory. Stanley W. Rosenkranz of
Tampa was Conference chairman.

been "profiting rather than
losing" as a result of OPEC's
hiking of the price per barrel of
Rosenbaum, in his remarks,
covered a wide range of issues,
noting that the Arab States have
been "devaluating" both the
American people and American
power vis-a-vis the USSR; and
that there seems to be a growing
American incapacity to cope with
OPEC's "blackmailing" of the
United States.
AS FOR the Carter Adminis-
tration, he said, "the White
House is evolving a foreign policy
in which Israel is being relegated
to second place; however. United
States Mideast policy has not yet
been permanently set."
Rosenbaum termed the PLO
"the most primitive and violent
among the Arabs in regard to
Israel," asserting that "for all
purposes, the PLO is crypto-
"What we are witnessing," he
declared, "is the surface effects of
a realignment of fundamental
United States policy, and same
kind of realignment that took
place in France in 1967 and in
Britain in 1968, and that took
place in both countries in 1938 in
their acceptance of Hitler's plan
for the dismemberment of
"THE TASK that faces
American Jews," he added, "is
that we cannot, we must not, we
will not commit the sin of
Golden, in summing up and
with special reference to the role
that Congressman Vanik might
play on his return to Washing-
ton, offered what he termed a
statement of "our views and
beliefs." His statement follows:
"Mr. Congressman, we want
you to leave Palm Beach with a
firm conviction that the Jews of
this community want and will
work for an American-Israeli
policy which is good for
America__And we believe that
what will be good for America, in
the long run, will be good for
Israel as well.
"Thus, we believe the following
things: That an Israel which is
forced into commitments before
it sits down to negotiate with its
Arab neighbors at Geneva is
already an Israel weakened at the
negotiating table, because it will
be facing states which will not
have to negotiate on the same
basis, since their job will largely
have been done for them;
"FURTHER we believe, as
does Israel, that Palestinian
refugees have legitimate interests
which should be discussed at
Geneva as should the interests
of 700,000 Jewish refugees who
have been forced from Arab
"Next, the creation of a new
state on the West Bank or any-
where in the region is inimical to
the best interests not only of
Israel and America but of Jor-
dan, Egypt and Lebanon as well,
and we sincerely believe that the
creation of such a state will sow
the seeds for the next war bet-
ween the countries of the Middle
East or worse.
"We respectfully remind the
world that the West Bank was
under Jordan's domain for 19
long years after Israel came into
existence from 1948 to 1967.
And no Palestinians, PLO or
otherwise, in that long period of
almost two decades clamored for
a new Arab State in the region!
Nor did Arabs in the Gaza Strip
"AN OBJECTIVE analysis
must lead one to conclude, there-
fore, that a new state on the West
Bank, especially one under PLO
control, would ultimately be used
as a springboard for an attack on
"Further, the world should be
reminded that the PLO came into
being in 1964 three years
before the Six-Day War when
Palestinians were the only ones
living on the West Bank. What
did the 'L' in PLO stand for in
1964? It stood for 'liberation.'
'Liberation' from whom? Not
from Jordan. The PLO was
created then, and stood then, for
the same thing that it stands for
now: the total destruction of
"On the question of borders,
we believe that the issue should
be negotiated at the conference
table in Geneva. A border which
is not defensible in the Middle
East cannot be secure! We sin-
cerely believe that a policy by our
government based on ex-
pediency; that is, Israel's basic
rights and security sacrificed in
exchange for OPEC oil, is not
only morally wrong but time will
prove it to be politically bankrupt
as well, if it is pursued.
"LASTLY, we believe that a
quid pro quo Israel's interest
and security sacrificed in ex-
change for Soviet cooperation on
SALT agreements will
boomerang against us because it,
too, is morally wrong; in any
event, the USSR is not trust-
worthy, as witness its faulty ad-
herence to the Helsinki agree-
"Above all, Mr. Congressman,
this we know as a part of
recorded history: that in the
Congress of the United Staes, we
have a body which, through
Republican and Democratic con-
gressional majorities and ad-
ministrations over the past 30
years, has understood the will,
the mood, and the desires of the
American people vis-a-vis Israel,
and this desire has been consis-
tently to support, strongly and
forthrightly, the only ally that
America can always count on in
the Middle East Israel! And
for that support, we extend our
thanks to you, to the Congress
and to all of our fellow

Number One with Bernie
Libros, chairman of the Wood-
lands UJA, and Locke, Brodzki
and Geisser reporting to a select
group of Woodlanders.
Kaplan, Taylor and Libros, in
letters mailed from Tel Aviv
several days following their
arrival in Israel inviting atten-
dance at the report meetings,
wrote that "the mood here is
sober and somber. The press is
full of what is happening in
Washington and the UN. If we
were to summarize the way the
average man feels as we have
come to sense it in only a few
days here there's disappoint-
ment with President Carter, a
resentment at Washington's
coddling of the PLO, and a
distrust of what a Geneva Peace
Conference will bring. We keep
hearing one question in par-
ticular. 'The American President
has changed but have the
American people changed also in
their attitude toward us, toward
Israel?' All the members of our
Fort Lauderdale UJA Mission
acknowledge that American
policy toward Israel is cooling
but that the American people
continue to hold Israel in the
highest regard... There is no
alarm here, but the expectancy is
that tensions between Israel and
the Arabs will worsen to the
point of breaking."
The letter by Kaplan and Tay-
lor ended with these words. "We
have much to tell that we can't
write about, and much that you
will want to ask that we can an-
swer. Join us for what we know
will be a heart-to-heart report on
matters of life and death for
Israel and the Jewish people."
THE MISSION arrived at Ben
Gurion Airport Monday, Oct. 17,

Why we
I There is a reason why after nearly 6000
years, we remain a strong people with a
I sense of purpose.
I Throughout history, the synagogue has
been the force that has bound us together
as a People and a Faith. And it is partic-
ularly appropriate at this time of year for
[all of its to reaffirm our commitment to
our tradition by joining and supporting a
I synagogue or temple of our choice.

ORT Convention
Fifty years of the existence of Women's American
ORT will be marked by the "Golden Jubilee" convention
of the organization beginning this weekend in Jerusalem.
Scheduled through Oct. 27, the convention is the
organization's 24th biennial national gathering and is
expected to attract some 1,500 delegates representing
135,000 members in 1,055 chapters across the nation.
We salute Women's American ORT, which supports
the global vocational education and training operations of
Organization for Rehabilitation Through Training.
Currently, ORT operates over 700 installations in 22
countries on five continents. Nearly 1.5 million people
have been trained by ORT vocational networks since the
organization was founded in 1880 with an eye toward
giving people help so that they may come to help them-
The roster of distinguished personalities who will
address the Jubilee convention, from Prime Minister
Begin through UN Ambassador Chaim Herzog, attests to
the significance of the gathering.
We wish the organization's deliberations well.
Another Entebbe
Crack troops of the West German government are to
be congratulated for their rescue operation in Somalia this
week that saved the lives of so many hostages on a
guerrilla-skyjacked Lufthansa plane.
Israel may take just pride that her own Entebbe
mission in Uganda a year ago last summer surely served
as the model and inspiration for the German operation.
But we must say in all candor that the
congratulations pouring into Bonn this week come from
nations whose hypocrisy knows no bounds.
Why are they not up in arms against skyjacking itself
that a good deal of the success of this sort of criminal
activity comes as a consequence of their own sins of
Why is international terrorism not the major issue at
the United Nations these days, rather than more tired and
repetitive and useless talk of destroying Israel, a major
target of terrorist activity?
Why do the very nations that congratulate Bonn also
secretly spur the terrorists on?
That should be the primary topic of consideration
these days, not the rescue itself, however heroic and
laudatory it was.
Sidestepping the Issue
There are disturbing vibes emerging out of the
Supreme Court deliberations in the Allan Bakke case.
If the rumors are correct, then the High Court intends
to address itself, not to the constitutional issue involved,
but to whether the University of California action barring
Bakke from its medical school was in violation of existing
Federal laws guaranteeing non-discriminatory practice.
Under these circumstances, and considering the
affirmative action atmosphere these days, including equal
access/equal opportunity that virtually assures
predetermined racial mix and also a deliberate degrading
of professional, academic and employment standards, the
Court's opinion may very well go back to the Congress for
review of the Federal laws involved only to have af-
firmative action reiterated and the nub of the Bakke issue
This would be a pity. Reverse discrimination is
discrimination. The issue is whether this is in violation of
individual civil rights not that it is, and with an ex-
planation to excuse it.

that, if elected, he will bring the
best of himself to the governor-
ship and nothing but the best.
"No," he says of his early-
starting campaign, "it's not too
soon." To begin with. Shevin has
a lot of stiff competition, much of
it from Miami, his hometown.
As Attorney General, he likes
to think he has a running jump
ahead, but there are other distin-
guished office-holding candidates
in the field who would also like to
move into the Governor's
Mansion when Reubin Askew
bids farewell.
"WE HAVE to legitimize our
campaign," Shevin emphasizes.
Apparently, the sooner the
better; the road may be a difficult
one to hoe.
Doea he anticipate any Stone-
Eckerd incidents along the way?
The reference is to Floridians who
don't cotton to Miami Jews in
competition for high political
Shevin confesses that such
incidents have already occurred.
"I won't mention other guber-
natorial candidates by name, but
key people among the opposition
have already been passing the
word statewide.
And the word is?
'THAT A Jew from Miami
can't win," Shevin explains
flatly, "which means support
somebody else."
And so what has he been doing
about the whispering campaign?
"I confronted him," says
Shevin, "the key people suddenly
reduced to a single still un-
identified opponent. "I told him

that Shevin has only Jewish

"I confronted him." Shevin
continues a moment later, "and
he vehemently denied it."
HE ADDS, toying with the
spinach some more: This may
be the end of it. By confronting
him, I put a stop to it before it
could really get serious.

the Attorney General says. "I
was elected in 1970 and reelected
in 1974. There were others, too:
Dick (U.S. Sen. Richard Stone,
whom Jack Eckerd tried to stop
the same way), and Jerry (Gerald
Lewis, State Comptroller)."
Floridians, he says hopefully,
will decide on the basis of issues,
not on religion. They've done so
in the past. Three Jewish

Shevin would like to see the

an accountant and two consumer
"Power companies," argues
Shevin, "are monopolies. If they
are not going to serve the public,
but operate only in terms of
escalating profits, then we must
look for alternatives." although
he concedes that he is opposed to
government take-over. He seizes
upon a collateral ripoff issue.
ANCE: "The insurance com-
panies are engaging in rate dis-
crimination against the people of
South Florida. This may be a
basis." he says, "for challenging
them in the courts."
Shevin's eyes become slits of
aroused public feeling if not out-
right rage. Just about everyone
of them keeps a double set of
books in which their investment
profits are kept separate from
their actual insurance
Shevin refreshes the record:
"In 1970, and again one year
later. I argued against the
California plan, which gave rise
to insurance company freedom to
institute rate increases without
prior commission approval. As of
Oct. 1 of this year, we should
already be seeing greater

Shevin asserts firmly. "That son
of thing hits hardest and most
inequitably on those least able to
pay it. Florida taxpayers should
not be harassed."
Observes Shevin: "We are
50th out of 50 states in our
capacity to retrieve Federal
dollars from the taxes Floridians
pay the government annually.
"If elected, I would make it a
personal task to see improvement
in that area.
"For example, we ought to
have a full-time person in

Gov. Wallace with all his talk
about the Federal bureaucracy

him from working the system by
managing to get many more
dollars back to Alabama than we
do. What's wrong with us?
"That's where we must look for
more funds not in proposed
state income tax plans."
EDUCATION: Here, Shevin
waxes eloquent. "We talk about a
stronger economic base for
Florida more industry, more
taxes. But our educational
system leaves much to be
desired. Industry tends to shy
away from areas where the edu-
cational system is, at beat,

STeil A. Cooper: Portrait of a Leader
"/n 1972. I watched Soviet Jews
getting off a train in Vienna and
realized that these men, women
and children were guarded by
soldiers with machine guns not
because they were carrying state
secrets not because they knew
how to develop an atomic bomb
but because they were Jews
Jews like me. For the first time, I
truly understood the meaning of
Jewish commitment."
The speaker is Neil A. Cooper,
an attorney from Maiden, Mass.
a vocal, articulate and deter-
mined man who speaks for the
younger generation of national
Jewish leadership.
As chairman of the United
Jewish Appeal's Young Leader-
ship Cabinet, Cooper leads a
group of almost 250 men between
the ages of 25 and 40 who have
demonstrated the combination of
energy and commitment that
mark a leader early in life. Cooper
is devoting this year to
representing them at national
and international meetings and
to being their voice at the highest
levels of communal decision-
WATCHING Cooper at work
in his law office, one catches a
glimpse of his vitality and drive.
He speaks enthusiastically and
knowledgeably about Israel and
the American Jewish community,
and it is clear that his interests
and knowledge encompass a
broad range of ideas.
What are the values that would
impel a man like Neil Cooper to
direct so much of his energy into
activity on behalf of the Jewish
people? They stem from his early
home life in suburban Boston, the
influence of his wife and his ex-

anti-Jewish incidents at a
Munich army academy were
damaging to the reputations of
both the Federal Republic and its

firmed (following an in-
vestigation) press reports that
young officers at the Munich
academy engaged in a symbolic
"Jewburning" while singing Nazi
songs. The officers did not as
previously reported write
"Jude" on scraps of paper and
cardboard which were tossed into
a fire. But they did shout 'throw

periences as a worker for social
reform and liberal causes.
Bom almost 40 years ago in
Cambridge, Mass.. Cooper was
raised in nearby Maiden in a
family he describes as "ethnically
Jewish" and which balanced
traditional observance with an
open approach to secular life. He
served as president of his high
school class for three years and
was friendly with both Jewish
and non-Jewish students.
"I WAS very comfortable in
the community." he recalls,

the implications of being Jewish.
My family celebrated the
holidays, but my house and my
life were always full of all kinds of
His choice of college Bow-
doin, a small men's college in
Maine was based on its
academic distinction rather than
the size of its Jewish population,
which is small, or the excellence
of its Jewish life.
"You didn't go to Bowdoin to
be in a Jewish environment," he
says ironically, "yet a dispropor-
tionate number of its Jewish
graduates have gone on to
become leaders both in New Eng-
land and on the national level."
Among Bowdoin's graduates are
Leonard Bell of Boston and 1.
Joel Abromson of Portland,
Maine, both former Young
Leadership Cabinet Chairmen.
A MAJOR influence in his lite
comes from his wife, Deanna.
whom he married while he was a
student at the University of
Michigan Law School.
"Deanna came from a much
stronger Jewish background than
I did. Her father, for example.
davens every morning. He is a
very modern, contemporary man
yet a devoted, practicing Jew.
Deanna has had a profound in-
fluence on my involvement in
Jewish affairs. She brought a
strong sense of Jewishness into
our home and has also en-
couraged and supported my
growing understanding of Juda-
ism and involvement in fund-
raising activity
Cooper brings to his new
position a strong background in
civic and political activity He
served on the Maiden School
Board for eight years a
training ground for both the
visionary ideals of leadership and
the minute attention to detail
that characterizes one who can
accomplish as well as dream.
ALWAYS interested in inter-
national affairs. Cooper never-
theless had no strong sense of
attachment or identification with
Israel until the Six-Day War in
"I began to think about the
very questions I had not been
forced to deal with in my youth:
Why was I Jewish? What did this
mean? What did the sense of
Jewish uniqueness mean? During
the period between 1967 and
1970. I started to develop a
strong Jewish consciousness. It
came to me late and. in some
ways. I feel cheated that 1 didn't
have this feeling and under-
standing earlier. It was at this
time that I began to understand
the essential difference between
this generation and that of our
parents. We will not sit back pas-
sively and accept what happens
to our people."
Cooper stops the conversation
to accept a telephone call from a
Cabinet member who is con-
cerned about a program in
another state. He listens intently
and questions the caller for a few-
minutes what is the proposed
project? How will it serve as a
vehicle for communicating the
Story of the UJ A and the needs of
the people of Israel? How best
can he assist the local community
in developing the program?
Within a few minutes, the
problem is resolved, and he
resumes talking about the young
man who began to search for his
Jewish identity,
THE leadership of the Com-
bined Jewish Philanthropies in
Boston soon recognized Cooper's
talents and energy. He ran his
local campaign in Maiden, then
became associate chairman of the
Metropolitan Campaign and
finally chairman of the Trades
and Professions Division. These
positions gave him a great deal of
visibility within the active
Boston community and, in 1971,
he was asked to "join the UJA

this man has ever been dis-

early in his career as an attorney,
that he decided to take what he
perceived as an easy way out. He

Israel Has Chosen New Leaders-Reinforce This Choice
Your Voice at the 29th World Zionist Congress
On May 17, 1977 the people of Israel made a
revolutionary choice by electing a Likud gov-
ernment headed by Menahem Begin, Simcha
Erlich. Moshe Dayan. and Ezer Weizman.
Thus, the activist Zionism that ZOA has repre-
sented since the days of Louis D. Brandeis.

led to the foundation of the State of Israel, is
vindicated once again. Our historic General

Israel's new government needs responsive
leadership in the World Zionist Organization.
A vote for ZOA will assure this result.
We solicit your vote and that of every man and

Immediately after the May 17 Knesset
elections Ezer Weizman wrote: "The
ZOA was the only organization that
stood firmly behind us...the ZOA was
on the spot at the right time."
ZOA does what Israel urgently needs. Of all
Zionist groupings. ZOA is best equipped
to wage the battle for Israel in America.
ZOA has an active national public affairs
program. 20 regional organizations, the
dynamicyouth movement Masada, major
projects in Israel, and an 80-year tradi-

Schindler Outlines Program
four-point program for "political
action and public education" to
serve American interests and the
cause of Middle East peace was
outlined today by Rabbi
Alexander M. Schindler, chair-
man of the Conference of Presi-
dents of Major American Jewish
Organizations. In a letter to the
presidents of the Conference's 32
national constituent organiza-
tions, Schindler declared:
"The swiftly-changing Middle
East scene is moving into a new
and crucial period, one that
demands vigorous and informed
action by an alert and vigilant
Jewish community. How clearly
these events are understood by
the American people and the
makers of public policy is likely
to determine both the future of
the Jewish State and the chances
of peace in the Middle East.

Senators Score Carter More soviet jews
For Joint Statement Reaching Israel
Democratic and Republican sup-
porters of I srael in Congress and
two candidates for Mayor in New
York City have strongly attacked
President Carter for the joint
United States-Soviet declaration
on the Middle East issued last
Both Rep. Edward Koch, who
was the Democratic candidate for
mayor in New York City, and
New York Secretary of State
Mario Cuomo, who was his
Liberal Party opponent, wrote
letters to Carter accusing the
President of pressuring Israel to
accept the Palestine Liberation
Organization in Mideast
negotiations. However. Koch,
who was in an official welcoming
party today for the President
when he arrived in New York to
address the United Nations
General Assembly, delivered his
letter personally to Carter.
SEN. DANIEL P. Moynihan
(D., N.Y.) warned here that the
U.S.-Soviet joint declaration
"can only contribute to the
erosion of Israel's right to a
secure existence" and to "a
corrosive enhancement of Soviet
influence in the Middle East."
His statement noted that "it is
particularly ominous" that the
declaration makes no mention of
United Nations Security Council
Resolution 242.
In what he called "a strongly
worded letter of protest" to
Carter, Rep. William Brodhed
(R., Mich.) urged the President
not to impose a solution but to
work for a settlement negotiated
by the parties themselves. He
said while seeking a solution for
the Palestinian refugee problem,
the U.S. must not encourage a
Palestinian state on Israel's

said there should be "some sort
of Palestinian representation in
the negotiations, but the U.S.

Palestinian people."
Rep. Benjamin S. Rosenthal

"marks a further erosion of
American support for Israel" and
is "a major step towards the

United States has long promised
would never happen." It also
"demonstrates a disturbing pro-
Arab bias on the part of the con-

REP. ROBERT F. Drinan (D.

Administration with violations of
its commitments to Israel in the
1975 Sina agreements. He said
the joint statement places on
Israel "an unfair and possibly
dangerous burden before nego-
tiations have even commenced."
Rep. Jack F. Kemp (R.. N.Y.)
said "There is mounting evidence
that the Administration is about
to make a historic reversal of
American policy in the Middle
East by recognizing the PLO
without any concessions on their
part to mitigate their threat to
destroy the State of Israel."

illogical policy" being pursued by
the Carter Administration in the
Middle East.

said the joint statement does not

Women's American ORT
celebrated 50 years dedicated to
providing quality vocationaledu-
cation along with a knowledge of
Jewish heritage to Jewish youth
throughout the world at its 24th
biennial convention in Jerusalem
Oct. 23-27, the first time this
meeting has been held in Israel.
In an interview with the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency,
Beverly Minkoff, chairman of the
National Executive Committee of
Women's American ORT, traced
the growth of the group from its
founding by five women in
Brooklyn in 1927 to an
organization of 135,000 members
in 1,055 chapters across the
United States. It is also the
largest group within World ORT.
MINKOFF noted that the
original founders of the women's
group were the wives of men who
were members of the American
ORT Federation which had been
founded a few years earlier or had
come from Europe where they
had been familiar with the work
of ORT since it began in Russia
in 1890. One of the original
founders. Florence Dolowitz, now
88, is honorary president of the
Women's American ORT grew
slowly in its first quarter century.
By 1950 it had only 13,000
members in 105 chapters. Mrs.
Minkoff said the growth began
because of the need for ORT
schools in post-Holocaust Europe
and the new State of Israel and
because Nathan Gould, now its
national executive vice president
and executive director, joined it
and worked to expand the
During the post-war period,
Women's American ORT pro-
vided materials for classes held in
displaced persons camps and
sponsored the construction of the
Aron Syngalowski Center in Tel
Aviv, which Minkoff said revo-
lutionized vocational education in
the Middle East.
THE WOMEN'S group also
helped as ORT moved in with
vocational aid for Jews in
Morocco and South America,
areas where Jewish organizations
had not gone before, according to
Minkoff. She said as Jews left
North Africa the American group
sponsored projects in France,
such as a school in Lyons.

nance Minister Simcha Ehrlich,
speaking for the government,
said that Israel would defy U.S.-
Soviet attempts to impose a
settlement of the Middle East
conflict. He said such an attempt
was implicit in the U.S.-Soviet
joint declaration.
Israel will not accept an im-
posed settlement, will not accept
a Palestinian State and will not
accept PLO representation at the
Geneva talks, Ehrlich told news-
men after the Cabinet meeting.
"There is hardly anything in the

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
I am taking this opportunity to
send you a copy of a thank you
letter from Nahum Salansky.
When I was in Israel this sum-
mer (from May 17 to June 7), I
had the opportunity to visit with
Mr. Salansky in Tel Aviv. It so
happens that Mr. Salansky is
related to me, and at the time
that I saw him, he had been in
Israel one month. When I was in
New York in June (soon after
returning from Israel), I con-
tacted the New York Conference
of Soviet Jewry and sent them
copies of this letter:
Dear Friends,
"The miracle of my escape
from the USSR is a reality, and I
am in Israel with my wife Luba
and my son Misha. We have
joined my mother and we are a
united family. We have come
"I wish to take this oppor-
tunity to express my deep grati-
tude for the support and en-
couraagement that you gave me
during my struggle for freedom
when facing the threat of criminal
charges. We are deeply grateful
for your active support which, no
doubt, sustained us during our
"Now that we can look forward
to a full Jewish life with our
family and the larger family of
Israel, we cannot forget the many
Jews who are less fortunate and
who remain captives of darkness.

you have done for us and hope
that you will continue your noble
efforts on behalf of the Soviet
"I was unable to acknowledge
your warm friendship and
generous support as my mail was
confiscated, but I want you to
know how grateful I am to you

my contact with you. I shall be
happy to hear from you again.
"May God bless you.''
Cordially yours,

No State Called Palestine
WASHINGTON (JTA) In a statement issued here
expressing satisfaction with Israel's decision, the State Depart-
ment cautioned that the approved document for reconvening a
Geneva conference is "still a working paper which may require
further negotiations after the Arab governments have given
their views on it."
Hodding Carter commented that "diametrically opposing
views" are being expressed on the issue of Palestinian
representation. He said that "whoever participates (in the
Geneva conference) must be accepted by all the parties."
ASKED BY a Lebanese reporter if Palestinians would be
allowed to attend as representatives of the "State of Palestine,"
Carter replied, "There is no state called Palestine today."
President Carter was asked if he favored the creation of a
Palestinian entity or homeland. He replied, "I have never
advocated an independent Palestinian state."
Open Fence May Close
JERUSALEM (JTA)Political sources said here that the
open fence on the Lebanese border may be closed as part of the
stabilization process in southern Lebanon.
THEY SAID that while Israel would like to keep the fence
open, it could hardly object if the Lebanese government is able
to re-establish its authority in the south and wants to shut the
fence down.
Lebanese Foreign Minister Fuad Boutrus has said that the
fence will be closed when the Lebanese army enters the area.
The recent cease-fire agreement called for warring Palestinians
and Christians to withdraw from strategic locations to be
replaced by Lebanese army regulars.

Rabbi Alexander Schindler,
chairman of the Conference of

Jewish Organizations, accused
the Carter Administration of
reneging on President Carter's
pledge to support a negotiated
settlement in the Middle East on
the basis of the United Nations
Security Council Resolutions 242
and 338 and requested Secretary
of State Cyrus Vance "the oppor-
tunity of a clarification from you
of the American position."
stein, president of the Zionist
Organization of America, con-
demned the joint statement as a
"new Munich."
He called for an immediate
national mobilization of the
Jewish people in this country and
urged the convocation of a
leadership assembly in
Washington "to dramatize our
concern at the lethal direction
American foreign policy has
taken and its mortal danger to
the State of Israel."
In a telegram sent to Vance,
Schindler said, "We are pro-
foundly disturbed" by the joint
U.S.-Soviet statement "which on
its face represents an abandon-
ment of America's historic com-
mitment to the security and
survival of Israel and imperils
our country'8 interests by giving
a major role to the USSR, not
merely at Geneva but in the Mid-
dle East itself.

U.S.-Soviet plan calls for an

and thus its very survival on the
Soviet Union We respectfully
request the opportunity of a

Sterastein said the joint

party to an imposed solution."
IN TELEVISION interviews,
the joint statement was attacked
by AFL-CIO president George
Meany and Sen. Henry Jackson
(D., Wash.). Appearing on CBS'
"Face the Nation," Meany said
an imposed settlement will not

Jackson said on NBC's "Meet

Union, the United States had
allowed "the fox back in the
