I Perlman, the JCC's
described the acqui-
, giant move dictated
tiling growth of North
[general and Jewish
populations." The Jewish popu-
lation here was estimated earlier
this year at 100,000, with the
influx of new residents con-
tinuing at an undiminished pace.
Mrs. Perlman, in a formal
losq!
statement announcing the acqui-
sition, declared that "when the
Jewish Community Center of
Greater Fort Lauderdale was
founded nearly two and a half
years ago, it was created to meet
the increasing needs of a com-
munity that has been on a steady
course of non-stop growth. A
mere 10 years ago, there were less
than 5,000 Jews living in the Fort
Lauderdale area. Today, there are
more than 100,000.
"UNIVERSALLY, Jewish
Community Centers are com-
mitted to fostering Jewish
identity through educational,
recreational and social activities.
Our Jewish Community Center
here in Fort Lauderdale adheres
to that commitment. We have an
abundance of activities and
programs. We have a qualified
staff to implement them. And we
have an ever-soaring population
to participate in and support
them."
The Center, started and housed
since late 1975 in the building of
the Jewish Federation on the
boundary between Lauderdale
Lakes and Oakland Park, has
been serving in multiple ways
often taxed to capacity as an
educational, cultural and meeting
facility, and as one of the sites of
the Federation's Kosher
Nutrition Program, as a day care
center for older adults, as the
social focus of the several JCC
Singles groups, and as the take-
off point for the JCC's year-round
youth camp projects and older
adult travel programs.
"What we didn't have is
adequate space and facilities to
take care of the programs and the
people who came to enjoy them,"
Mrs. Perlman said. "Now we are
on the threshold of solving all
that."
RENOVATION of the various
buildings and re-conditioning of
the outdoor areas will begin this
summer. Expectations are that
the re-building program will be
finished in time for a JCC move-
in on or about June 1,1979.
In addition to the site's
overhaul, the JCC has embarked
on a major capital funds cam-
paign to raise $2 million to cover
the acquisition and renovations.
Donors are being given up to five
vears to redeem their commit-
ments. The fund effort, now in
progress, will stop later in the
year to make way for the Jewish
Federation's annual UJA
campaign.
In addition to the 11 buildings,

JERUSALEM The upshot
of Vice President Mondale's trip
to Israel last weekend was to
blunt President Carter's threat in
a news conference that if Israel
does not accept Egypt's peace
proposal still undelivered while
Mondale was engaged in talks
with Prime Minister Begin here,
that the U.S. would press for
resumpton of the Geneva talks.
This would automatically
bring the Soviet Union back into
the discussions.
MONDALE emerged from his
talks here to announce the sup-
posedly secret agreement for
Israel Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan to meet with Egypt's
Foreign Minister shortly in
London.
The long-rumored meeting was
apparently firmed up, but then
Prime Minister Begin, in a state-
ment of his own, declared that
Israeli participation in such a
London conference was not at all
certain.
"First we should get the
(peace) proposals by Egypt as
promised, and we want to read it
and study it and analyze it. and
then we shall decide about a
meeting, which shall of course
take place after we have had time
to study it. This should, and I
hope will be, the sequence."
Begin s apparent contradiction
of Mondale was seen here as
Israel's sharp reaction to Presi-
dent Carter's threat about
bringing the Russians back into
the "peace arena" if Israel
refuses to come to terms as he
aees them.
BUT ADMINISTRATION of
ficials were quick to declare that
"Our expectation is that the
meeting will take place.
As Mondale arrived for his
talks with Prime Minister Begin,
there were hundreds of demon-
strators outside from the Gush
Emunim movement waving
placards declaring, "The U.S. has
no mandate in Israel."
The Egyptian peace plan, pre-
sumably the one Israel rejected
out-of-hand last week before it
was even published because of
the prior conditions it placed on
subsequent talks, was expected
to be presented sometime this
week.

mouth-watering, a fashion show
featuring the latest New

mark-downs on merchandise in
virtually every one of its depart-

the giant Lauderhill Mall store
Thursday, Aug. 3.
Mrs. Martin (Sally) Fridovich.
the Richards WECARE Day
Committee chairman, in making
these announcements juat before
departing for a brief visit to
Israel, reported that business
all over greater Fort Lauderdale
were joining what she termed "a
cavalcade of generous support"
for the sales jamboree to help
assure its success.
THE Fashion Show will be
staged by Rhona Guberman, the
store's fashion director. She said
the fashions to be shown by live
models would be the latest from
the studios of the country's fore-
most designers. Richards, she
said, prides itself on keeping up
with the latest styles.
The early-bird dinner will make
it possible for late-afternoon
shoppers to stay in the store
through the evening and make
the most of the hundreds of bar-
gain opportunities, Richard
Basile, Richards vice-president
for sales promotion, told The
Jewish Floridian.
The Richards sales day for the
benefit of Federation WECARE
will be its second in behalf of the
two groups. The first Richards
Sales Jamboree in behalf of the
Jewish Federation WECARE
took place last Aug. 11. The an-
nual sales day is the first by a
South Florida department store
in behalf of a humanitarian cause.
THE Aug. 3 sales event will
bring these benefits: Richards
will contribute 10 percent of the
day's total receipts to the Jewish
Federation for added funding of
the WECARE volunteer pro-
gram. In addition, Richards will
donate one dollar for every
charge account applied for in
connection with the Sales Day

From Air Academy to JCC
It's almost startling to contemplate that by next
June the Jewish Community Center will be moving from
its present 1,600 square feet of space in the building of the
Jewish Federation to 16 acres of property containing 11
buildings and an array of baseball diamonds, athletic
tracks, basketball and tennis courts, a junior Olympic
swimming pool and a parade ground. There's only one
word for all of this: "Wow!'"
That's the word genial Bill Goldstein used when the
day came to make the acquisition a matter of public
record. Even he who discovered the tract and brought
its potentiality to the attention of the Federation and JCC
boards is still pinching himself to make sure that all of
this isn't a dream. The Jewish community owes him
and a number of other men and women a full-hearted
vote of thanks for their vision and initiative.
The JCC is now in a special effort to bring together
the $2 million that is needed to defray the cost of the
purchase and the renovation of the buildings and
property. Donors are being given up to five years to pay
on their commitments. It is hoped that members of the
Jewish community will respond with generosity and
alacrity.
Ail of this would not have happened but for our size
and age. We are better than 100.000 strong and. as Leo
Goodman, the new president of the Jewish Federation,
noted at the recent annual meeting, we have also come of
e
Let it now be that this grown-up community will
marshall its strength as well as its maturity to insure that
it will have not only one of the finest JCC's in the country
but one that's paid for.
A Sports Note
No one ever said Muhammed Ah didn't have chut-
zpah. He's got that to spare. Well, he was in the Soviet
Union late last month for ten days and visited with
another biggie. President Leonid Brezhnev. They talked
for nearly an hour. For one of the few times in his life. Big
Mouth sounded humble.
"I wasn't the greatest," he told a hastily put together
airport press conference on return to New York aboard one
of Aeroflot's Ilyushin-62 jets. "He (Brezhnev) was the
greatest."
The ex-champ went on to say "There's no big shots in
Russia. Everybody's plain and simple. Even Mr.
Brezhnev." Hey champ, wanna betf
Ah had these other glittering observations about the
USSR, much of which, he added, pleased him. "I saw only
one policeman. I didn't see no guns. No crime. No
prostitutes. Not one homosexual." Well, as all of us know,
the USSR is a worker's paradise.
Ali went on to say get this: "The Jews go to syna-
gogues. The Moslems have mosques everywhere. The
Catholics are free to worship." Yep, that's what he said,
the Maven.
Well, his next biggest trip is into the ring for a 15-
rounder with Leon Spinks We hope the best man wins
and you all know who we think that is.
Of Nazis and the KKK
Skokie's win turned out to be Chicago's loss. What
was to have been a Nazi march through Skokie's streets
on Sunday. June 25 will be a Brown Shirt parade in
Chicago's Marauette Park this Sunday.
American Nazi Party fuehrer Frank Collin abandoned
the suburb for the big city when a Federal district court
judge ordered the Chicago Park District to lift insurance
requirements that stood in the way of the Nazi ramble.
Some have called it a victory for free speech, the New York
Times included. A dark victory, we'd say.
The Nazi lumpens would kill free speech the first
thing if they came to power. That's one route they'll never
march on again to victory so help us.
Closer to home, the Ku Klux Klan will be staging a
march July 8 on the streets of Davie. The KKK. as we all
know, is anti-Black. So their invitation to participate in
ine march nas gone out to all whites. When asked if they
would accept Jews in their parade, some kleagl* or is it
kook answered, of course, "they're white, ain't they."
Thanks pal.
Bad Marks for Supreme Court
The Supreme Court of the United States has waffled
the issue in the Bakke Case. Yes, Allan Bakke gains
admission to the University of California Medical School
at Davis. Yes. the. University was too strict in applying
racial quotas so many Blacks, so many whites as the
basis for his exclusion. Yea, racial quotas may be applied.
provided they are applied along with other factors.
Yes, the Supreme Court if it didn't quite drop the
pass hobbled it on the fifty yard line, where it lost its
footing. We expected more.
The Bakke Case had landmark possibilities. No more
than there can be a color teat for public office can there be
one for admission to the public school. That was the real
issue. The Court decision blurs it.
Allan Bakke is admitted to school because for him
the Court waived the teat. But what about those
coming up for admission. The Supreme Court says that
public schools may apply the color test. That sugguesta
they may not apply it. It also suggests a continuation of
anxiety, tension, further court teats and indecision.
When the Supreme Court goes soft on a hard con-
stitutional issue, all of us are set back the Constitution,
too. That's what makes it so bad.
Grand Passion' of a Taxpayer
ISRAEL ZANGWILL has
written that "The verage "
payer is not more capable of a
grand passion' than of a grand
opera." I'm not so sure. In a lite-
time of paying taxes. 1977 was
the first year that 1 could not pay
it all. At first, it was source of
deep embarrassment I felt
ashamed.
Worse. I fek fearful. I had
images of government agents
descending upon me with hand-
cuffs and leg irons to shuttle me
off to some nameless imprison-
ment.
I HAVE since discovered that
the fraternity of debtors to the
IRS is vast, and that its ranks
have mainly been swelled by
middle class people like me who
have never earned more in their
lives and never enjoyed it leas.
I have discovered that the
more I earn, the more I owe Uncle
Sam. A modest salary increase
means less take-home pay than
before, higher estimated tax pre-
payments. Who can afford
success? It seems that it is better
to earn less so that less can be
torn out of my hide at the end of
the next fiscal period.
As a result of this discovery. I
am no longer embarrassed or
fearful. Instead. I am damned
angry, and that's as grand a
passion as any grand opera. If
Israel Zangwill had not died in
1926. had he lived in to 1977. the
first year of my new servitude,
perhaps he'd have been less
inclined to come up with that bon
mot of his.
THE OTHER DAY. I called
the IRS to discuss my problem
In the beginning, the con-
versation seemed friendly
enough. The IRS agent asked
how much my 1977 tax was. how
much of it I had paid, and how
much I still owed.
I would judge that just under
five minutes into our con-
versation, the agent's tone took
on an edge of nastiness and
aggression. I was told that I had
better do such and such, or else.
meaning the handcuffs and leg
irons. I suppose. When the agent
asked for my name and social
security number. I hung up
abruptly.
It has taken days since then to
sort out my reactions to the
agent's intimidation beyond mere
anger. I have never had any
illusions about the benevolence of
anonymous government
bureaucracy, including our own.
THE KAFKAESQlE nether
world in which it lives makes it a
punitive institution. For all our
high-minded humanitarian prin-
ciples, even our own society is
being bludgeoned to death by
government bureaucrats and
by these very principle* they
spout as the bludgeon.
Whenever we grumble about it,
we find ourselves being preached
to by the bureaucrats about our
obligations to the diaadvantaged
and the poor.
The irony is that it was the
middle class that first conceived
of these obligations as its own.
But now I'll tell you something
heretical: after my telephone
conversation with the IRS agent
the other day, I find it in-
creasingly hard to care very
much anymore about the dia-
advantaged and the poor, par-
ticularly because it is my part of
the social and economic order
that is being commanded with
brute force to support them. The
bureaucrats, who would never
conceive of these obligations
themselves, are now mJr^g
hangman's noose of them to
wring the middle class neck.
A FRIEND reports that his
recent nine-day stay at a hospital

that his physicians' bills are only

Mindlin
caught my finger in the car door
and had to go to the Emergency
Room there. One 60-second
examination later, one bandaid
and one tetanus booster later,
and I was presented with a bill
for $49.
Surrounding me in the
Emergency Room were the af-
fluent disadvantaged and poor,
and I could not repress the
resentment I felt at the billing
procedure reserved for them,
making somewhat ancient and
spiteful the notion raised by
Lowell in his Vision of Sir
Launfal: "The beggar is taxed for
a comer to die in,. The priest
hath his fee who comes and
shrives us. We bargain for the
graves we lie in".
I GUESS that is what Prop-
osition 13 in California was all
about. Middle class victims like
me. who bear the brunt of our
national madness, rebelled.
Already, however, we see that
their rebellion has failed. It is
they who are being punished for
the temerity they had to defend
themselves against the time-
honored notion that the power to
tax is the power to destroy.
They are being punished by
reduced services, firings in the
public employment sector,
cutbacks in the school system.
The inviolate strength of the dis-
advantaged / poor lobby mean,
while sails serenely on.
A LESSON in history U Dec*,
aary here: every free society that
has attacked the integrity of the
middle class was doomed in the
end. It is the creativity, the pro-
ductivity of the middle class that
gives form to the free social

As in the past elsewhere, the
American middle class is hut

Gulf and Exxon may pay for an
occasional public television
program I watch, but my share of
the humanitarian burden in-
volving the diaadvantaged and
the poor grows heavier by the
year at the same time that Gulf
and Exxon profits are by now
somewhere into the ionosphere.
I can not conceive of Gulf or
Exxon moving in to fill the
breach. The corporate profit
structure never fills anything but
its own coffers, although m
sponsorship of public television
programs is meant to tell ui
otherwise.
WE HAD best take the bitter
history lesson that, say, Weimar

the edge of the great depression.
Or Italy today, which is fast
breathing its last gasps of

wing to the insatiable public tax

13 is a mere tea party compared
to the civilizational disaster
awaiting us all if the public tax
roll fails to curb its appetite for
middle class blood.

Teaches
Cork's Mayor Goldberg 'Davens' Daily
By SUE GARDNER
Every morning, the Lord
Mayor of Cork. Ireland, laight
'tefxllm and davens. On the Sab-
bath and holidays, he takes turns
with other observant Jews
leading the services. And several
times during the week. Mayor
Gerald Yael Goldberg teaches
Hebrew and Judaic subjects to
the children of his community.
Our synagogue is over 100
vears old. but the congregation
has dwindled so we cannot have a
rabbi or religious school." Mayor
Goldberg explained. "We have
just 21 Jews in Cork in a Cork
population of 180,000."
THE MAYOR is Orthodox,
and his wife obtains kosher meat
from Dublin. He feels he has
more respect from his townsmen.
most of whom are Catholic, than
he would if he were not observ-
ant, although that is not the
reason for his observance.
Mayor Goldberg came into
office after serving as Alderman,
a non-paying job as is the
mayor's. All he receives for the
mayor's post are expenses and
the right to wear the handsome
gold "collar" with 13 red enamel
rosettes, his badge of office. He
had to take a year's leave of his
law practice to serve as mayor.
He ran on the conservative
platform of the Jack Lynch or
Fianna Fail party last year. He
does not think it odd that a Jew
with an ethnic backing of 20
other Jews could be elected to
office. Another preceded him in
the person of the late Robert
Briscoe, Jewish mayor of Dublin.
"IT IS something I wanted to
do, and I felt it was worth giving
up a year of my work to serve the
community." he says.
He also feels his teaching at
the religious school is very im-
portant. He has one class of six,
which is almost one-third of the
population. Having taken four
trips to Israel, he can understand
the young people who want to '
migrate there, but he wants to
Mayor Goldberg
hold on to all the Jews he can in
Ireland. The mayor has the best
Judaic library in the country, but
he also wants to share his interest
with other Jews.
"I 'd like to see more Jews come
to Ireland and see what it is like,"
Dr. Alvin Colin Receives Honor
Dr. Alvin K. Colin, longtime leader of the Jewish
Federation and a former general chairman of the Fort Lauder-
dale UJA, was named a Fellow of the National Academy of
General Dentistry at its annual meeting last week in Atlanta.
Dr. Colin, who heads the Jewish Federation's Committee on
Chaplaincy, is a member of a number of professional dental
organizations, among them the American Dental Association,
the Broward County Dental Society, the Florida Board of Den-
tistry, and Alpha Omega, the dental fraternity.
He also is a volunteer with the Broward Dental Clinic and
the Miami-Made Dental Clinic, offering his services at both
clinics free of charge several times each month.
he says. "We are remote from the
fighting which seems to get a
good deal of space in newspapers
here. Our Jewish communities in
Ireland are affluent, and there's
many avenues open to new-
comers."
ONE LADY in his entourage
also suggested he was a great
matchmaker and ready to
arrange things for those who
thought of settling in Ireland. It
was reported he offered to find an
Irish bride for Mayor Koch when
he visited City Hall in New York
recently.
The mayor's parents, who
came separately, actually started
out for the United States many
years ago and landed in Ireland
only because of evil boat cap-
tains. His father was a 14-year-
old Lithuanian, fleeing service in
the Russian army, when his
ship's captain put him ashore in
Ireland in 1882.
He borrowed $2 and bought
trinkets which he sold by travel-
ing from farm to farm. His
mother was an infant when she
came with her parents, also put
ashore in Ireland instead of going

(dozens are under investigation
for nothing more than public
writings discussing Egyptian
affairs); he threatens foreign
journalists, demanding that they
not report domestic dissatis-
faction that might "defame"
Egypt.
It was well said by columnist
William Safire (New York Times.
June 12): "Can you imagine the
howls of protest from the Carter -
Ribicoff set if Israeli Prime Min-
ister Menachem Begin ordered a
crackdown on dissidents, includ-
ing the silencing and interroga-
tion of his country's leading
newspaper editor?"
A short time ago most major
journalists (taken in by the
Sadat Jerusalem ploy) lavished
praise on the Egyptian leader,
calling him "moderate" and
"enlightened." I haven't run
across anyone but Safire with the
guts to now speak critically of
Carter's dictator friend in Cairo
(even though he imprisons their
colleagues on the subject in Time
or Newsweek..
GENTLEMEN what's the
matter? Cat got your
tongues? What about free-
dom of the press?
Sadat has closed down news-
papers, banned opposition poli-
tical parties and taken a totally

scale program designed
especially for older adults who
live in west Broward.
THE satellite or mini-center
will be known as "The Gathering
Place." Mrs. Helen Nathan, co-
ordinator of JCC older adult
programs, in announcing opening
of the Place, said it would intro-
duce and implement "a new con-
cept of service to the older
person."
"We hope to make The
Gathering Place an oasis of
friendship," she said. The
accent will be on experiencing the
joy of each day through ex-
periencing the joy of each other.''
The Gathering Place will be
open five days a week from 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m. It will offer a com-
prehensive program of
recreational and cultural ac-
tivities: serve as the number two
site for the Kosher Nutrition Pro-
gram (moved from its old site in
Temple Beth Orr in Coral
Springs); and will serve also as a
senior day care facility.
Mrs. Nathan noted that the
staff will include a day care
supervisor, a program specialist,
a licensed practical nurse and a
senior adult fitness specialist.
William (Bill) Goldstein, execu-
tive director of the over-all JCC,
also will be director of The
Gathering Place.
The Place is located west of
University Drive and east of the
Tamarac Jewish Center. It will
serve Sunrise, Lauderhill.

intransigent position, even
threatening a new war against
Israel.
He now says that if Israel will
withdraw to the 1967 borders
Jordan and Egypt would
"resume control" of the Sinai, the
West Bank and Gaza and .
"then let us sit together and
discuss other issues.
IT SEEMS to me that Jordan
and Egypt were in control of
those regions from 1948 to 1967,
and it certainly didn't lead to
peace of course that was before
they thought up a "Palestinian"
West Bunk nationalism.
Gazans and West Bankers I
have spoken with showed no
desire to be back under Egyptian
or Jordanian control; their
memories are not that defective.
Life tor Arabs in Gaza (under
Egyptian control) was so bad
that Saudi radio (March 10.1962)
compared it to Europe under
Hitler. Noted journalist Martha
Gellhorn [Atlantic Monthly.
October 1961) wrote: "...
Gaza is not a hell-hole, not a
visible disaster. It is worse."
IF SADAT considers what
amounts to total surrender by
Israel on all key matters of sur-
vival as an "interim step." what
is left for Israel to discuss the
date and place for mass suicide?
Here is without doubt a totally
unprincipled man who can do no
wrong because his oil-producing
friends have friends in Washing-
ton.
Our American press doesn't
act very responsibly either. Begin
is described as a hardliner, he
who lavished attention in arch
enemy Sadat in Jerusalem, gave
Sadat a place of honor to address
the Israeli parliament and almost
at once was too outgoing
offering most of Sinai and self-
rule in the West Bank.
It was well said by colum-
nist William Safire 'Can
you imagine the howls of
protest from the Carter -
Ribicoff set if Israeh
Prime Minister Mena-
chem Begin ordered a
crackdown on dis-
sidents ..."
THAT'S ONE hell of an open-
ing offer In return Sadat makes
no offer; to use his words- not
one inch. It's a unique type of
negotiation that Sadat wants but
one not unusual to the Arab-
Israeli situation. From the begin-
ning to this day. the basic Arab
position as to negotiation
remains the same you do what
we want, then we'll talk about the
other issues.
It's hard to pound this into
Western heads; but it is really
very simple. Islam does not want
a Jewish state (Israel) in the
Middle East. Islam does not
President Sadat
want a Christian state (Lebanon)
in the Middle East.
Sadat' intransigence regard-
ing Israel and his dictatorial be-
havior toward his own impover-
ished people is not unusual in
present-day Arab states. Presi-
dent Carter has reinforced the
worst side of Sadat's character
with his recent F5 and F15 Arms
sale package.

Herzog, Israel's Ambassador to
the United Nations, came down

Jewish community as Chief
Rabbi. None ot the other religious
communities split up because of
the division of six northern and

becoming the Republic.
THE MAYOR has three sons.
John lives in Philadelphia and

yeshiva there. John is a lawyer,
who has gone into the insurance
field.

Jack Sylvester Receives Accolade
Jack Sylvester and his wife Florence, both of Inverrary's
International Village (he was the UJA chairman in the Village
this past year), visited Israel in late May and returned home via
a tour of the Greek Islands just in time to take part in Inver-
rary's UJA Victory Party, June 15.
Ruth Freshman, a former resident of the Village, wrote a
tribute to Mr. Sylvester to mark his and his wife's departure. It
was read at the Victory Party on their return It reads:
To Jack Sylvester:
There's a man from California whose ilk is hard to meet.
His charm, his style, his broad know-how are sure damn hard to
beat.
No task's too large, no thanks too small for this multi-faceted
chap.
And with it all, his quiet drive is a feather in his cap.
For UJA, he helped to launch a super-duper drive.
And with it all, he still finds time for social life and jive.
Come one, come all, let's toast this man who speaks well, but
listens, too.
And wish him luck, and joy, and fun commencing May 22.
P.S. If they hadn't made this guy, we wouldn't have anything to
go buy.

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort LauderdaU
Friday, July f
the 016 Synagogue in Curacao
By JOE ABRAMS
WILLEMSTAD. Curacao -
The Prophet Elijah may not have
visited Curacao's Passover
Seders here this year, but some-
thing new certainly is in the trade
winds that blow across this
southern Caribbean island, where
the oldest Jewish congregation in
the Americas was founded in
1654.
Back in April, 42 families
about half of the Ashkenazic
Orthodox congregation Shaarei
Tsedek jointly purchased
$20,000 worth of kosher meat
from New York for the Passover
holidays.
SINCE there is no kosher
butcher on the island, Jewish
families have made individual
purchases before, but this group
action, prompted by newly-
installed Rabbi Joshua
Berkowitz, is unique. Now plans
are being formulated to submit
monthly orders for kosher
provisions.
While it is too early to predict a
resurgence of adherence to
Orthodox tradition in this oldest
of Western Hemisphere Jewish
communities, there is no question
that a significant move is in
progress.
The Jewish community on
Curacao, some 650 in number, is
about equally divided between
the young Ashkenazic Shaarei
Tsedek, established by East
European Jews in 1958, and the
older Sephardic Mikve Israel-
Emanuel, established by Spanish
and Portuguese Jews in 1654.
Mikve Israel is the oldest
synagogue in continuous use in
the Americas. In the late 18th
century, it had over 2,000
members, more than the total
number of Jews in all of the 13
colonies, and was known then as
the "mother'' of Jewish com-
munities.
IN FACT, its original con-
gregants helped meet the mort-
gage payments on the Touro
Synagogue in Newport, R.I.,
established in 1763, when Touro's
membership, which had over-
extended itself financially in
building its synagogue,
requested aid.
Since 1732. Mikve Israel has
been housed in a pastel-yellow
building, with a Spanish-tiled
courtyard, in downtown Willem-
stad. The building, including its
adjacent museum, is considered
an architectural masterpiece, and
a major tourist attraction.
Many of the objects used in
services are artistic treasures,
some of them older than the
synagogue itself. There are 18
artistically-decorated Torah
scrolls, some with solid silver
rollers; 24-candle brass chan-
deliers, a few dating back 200
Mikve Israel, dedicated in 1732 and the oldest synagogue in
continuous use in the Americas, is considered an architectural
masterpiece and island showplace in Willemstad, Curacao, in
the southern Caribbean, 38 miles off the coast of Venezuela.

years, which hang from a
mahogany ceiling; and a large
silver tray whose dents reflect its
long use.
Curacao custom requires that a
bridegroom dash a crystal goblet
on the tray during the wedding
ceremony instead of stamping on
it with his foot.
MANY VISITORS to Mikve
Israel are surprised to see sand
on the floor. There are two
reasons for the sand. One is to
honor the ancestors of today's
congregants, who were, for the
most part, secret Jews
(Marranosl living in Spain and
Portugal, where they had to
muffle the sound of their services.
The other is to symbolize the
wanderings in the desert before
the Jews reached the Promised
Land.
The beauty and tradition of the
Mikve Israel synagogue so
impressed a West Nyack. N.Y.,
couple that they plan to hold
their son's Bar Mitzvah there in
August instead of going to the
Western Wall in Jerusalem.
The renewed interest by Cura-
cao's Jewish community in its
heritage can be attributed in
large part to the youth, vigor and
progreasiveneaa of Rabbi Philip
J. Bentley of Mikve Israel and
Rabbi Berkowitz. Both are men
that's tellmq '6m
cV& TO IAV
off Af^rjK
in their thirties as are the presi-
dents of the two congregations.
THE TWO groups have joined
together to operate a single
Hebrew School and a B'nai B'rith
chapter. There also now appears
to be a possibility of building and
sharing a multi-purpose com-
munity center. However, an out-
right merger is probably unlikely.
The most significant merger of
Curacaoan Jewry took place in
1960, when members of the 100-
year-old Sephardic Reform
Temple Emanuel and the
Sephardic Orthodox Mikve Israel
joined under the Recon-
structionist banner while main-
taining elements of the old
Spanish and Portuguese liturgy.
TEMPLE EMANUEL. which
has been unused since then, is
now being refurbished as an
entertainment complex that will
retain the architectural beauty of
the original structure. This
summer, it will house a new
multi-media production, Bon Bini
Curacao (Welcome to Curacao),
that depicts Curacao's cultural
and historical attractions and
includes, on film, a Sabbath
service at Mikve Israel.
VISITORS to Curacao can
attend Friday evening or Satur-
day morning services at either
synagogue. The service at Mikve
Israel is mostly in English, with
some Hebrew and a bit of Por-
tuguese.
Sabbath observers will find the
Curacao Plaza and Avila Beach
hotels within walking distance of
the two synagogues. Kosher
frozen meals are available at all
hotels.
Another island attraction is
Beth Haim Cemetery, the oldest
Jewish cemetery in the Americas,
consecrated in 1669. It contains
hundreds of fascinating monu-
ments with elaborately-carved
atone figures representative of
many biblical characters.
JEWS HAVE been active in
the commerce and industry of
Curacao since the 18th century
and, at one time, were the most
populous white group on the
island.
One Jewish firm had over 100
cargo ships traveling the Euro-
pean-Caribbean United States
trade routes, and records show
that 200 Curacao ship captains
were Jewish. Today Willemstad
is the fifth busiest port in the
world.

Love that Land. Poems by Lillian Goldberg. Jerusalem: Centra1
Press, 70 pp.
AS THE Miami author herself tells it, Lillian Goldberg1!
time spent in Israel resulted in "an outpouring of poems, pUyt
and stories about this magnetic land." South Floridians mayb
familiar with her play, Tillie Goes to Israel, a comedy about
tourists in Israel. She has also written a screenplay about an
orphan home in Israel. Now we have a small, tender book of
verse which describes her beloved land of the Bible.
Goldberg's poems cover every aspect of Israel from u
Biblical sites to its modern agricultural wonders. She reflect*
upon the natural beauty of the land as well as upon its modern
cities.
Simplicity and brevity characterize the poems in this slim
volume. Ms. Goldberg clearly expresses her fervor and adoration
of the land she indeed loves.
Poems for My Mother. Poems by Joseph Rogel. Montreal: Con-1
cordia University. 88 pp.. illustrated. S2.
A WEEK AGO this reviewer saw an exhibit of drawings*
the Jewish Museum in New York, which were done by con-
centration camp inmates from Theresienstadt to Auschwiu-
Birkenau. They are dark, smoldering works reflecting the in-]
tensity of the pain suffered during their creation.
All creative work which has emerged from the Holocaust ii 1
a testament to man's will to live. Joseph Rogel affirms the Jew'i
will to survive. He has dedicated his life to writing poems about
the Jewish suffering which he both experienced himself and saw
around him as a prisoner in Auschwitz.
THE AUTHOR explains. "I have taken a vow not to let
people forget what happened to the Jews in the camps. My
poetry kept me alive while I was at Auschwitz. There were]
people, fellow prisoners, who liked my poems, who hid them I
while I was searched by the guards."
Poems for My Mother is written by a son to the memory of ]
a mother whom he loved very deeply. In Tears for My Mother. [
Rogel mourns his mother's death and the liquidation of the |
tfhftto in which they had lived:
/ still see your picture on the wall.
Your face so shrunken, small.
The tears in xour eyes a flowing sea.
Knowing: digging my own grave will my ordeal be.
Xow, not a single soul can be met.
From the ghetto only bloodstained bunkers left.
ROGEL'S MOTHER seems to have been the inspiration
which kept him alive during the Holocaust. One Poem a Day j
reflects the determination which her death motivated:
One poem a day
That will clearly display
My sorrow and fears.
My pain and tears.

In the ghetto on that rainy day.

For the next three hours, while
at the station, Margolis was
prevented from calling the U.S.

and had two men staring him in
the eyea without uttering a word.
He believes them to have been

Meanwhile, Slepak was or-
dered not to speak to Margolis.
When another official demanded
that the refusenik translate to
Margolis for him. Slepak refused,
lepeahng the order that he was
not to talk to Margolis.
MARGOLIS ATTEMPTED
to bargain his tape (the blank
one) to call the U.S. Embassy.
The Russians agreed. When he
handed them the tape and
requested a phone, the official
replied simply, "later."
Somehow, despite the enormity
of negative possibilities,
Margolis remained unafraid. He
now wonders how.
"I felt safe. The intelligent
thing is not to feel safe because I
was totally within their power.
But I was more scared that I
wasn't scared. It was also a
matter of ego and gamesman-
ship."
Finally, at 12:30 a.m., they
were let go, as if it never hap-
pened.
IT WAS the next day that
Margolis faced customs at the
Moscow airport. In retrospect,
some of the events are almost
humorous.
Margolis had a large number of
dolls, each of which contained
eight dolls built within one
another. To examine them, they
had to be painstakingly opened,
one by one. The customs official
did just that.
When Margolis asked, "Aren't
you too old to be playing with
dolls?", it brought the only
audible laugh of the hour.
Margolis also notes that the
customs line "was the only
private thing I had in Russia."
WHEN HE was interrogated
in a locked room, Margolis
refused for nearly an hour to be
searched, hoping to buy time for
the woman with the tape to pass
through customs. When officials
threatened that his plane was
leaving, Margolis reluctantly
consented to a search. Searching
his wallet, the Russians found his
identification as president of a
radio station and sneered, "We
got ourselves s president."
Following the search, which
"was done softly" through his
clothes, Margolis was told to sign
a document written in Russian.
When he asked what it was. the
translator answered, "Never
mind, trust me and you can go."
Uncertain of the consequences,
Margolis wrote nervously,

the largest single arms buyer in

The facts, he declared, are in
direct opposition to "the picture
of a defenseless Saudi Arabia
concerned with 36 antiquated
MIG-19's in the hands of Com-
munist-guided Southern Yemen
. planes which have been
there since approximately 1970."
He further pointed out that the
Arab states today have half a
million more men under arms,
three times the artillery, 3,000
more tanks and several hundred
more aircraft than NATO.
THE AMBASSADOR called
the Arab states' military prowess
"staggering from every perspec-
tive, regional, global, economic."
"One cannot escape the con-
clusion." he said, "that the world
is consciously ignoring a situa-
tion fraught with the gravest
dangers for mankind."
Discussing the stalled bilateral
talks between Israel and Egypt,
Ambassador Herzog criticixed
"columnists, pundits and leaders
of opinion" who call Israel "in-
transigent."
"In sum total, we have nego-
tiated for not more than 16
hours." he declared. "The United
States, on an issue such ss
Panama, negotiated for 13 years.
The United States negotiated on
Vietnam for four years. Why
should we be expected to resolve

decades in 16 hours? And if it is

I "Without knowledge, Allan Mar-
golis." The officials didn't even
i glance at it.
Tired and upset. Margolis was
freed and began somewhat
aimlessly searching for his plane.
Suddenly, a man approached him
from nowhere, pointed in a
direction, and said "You want to
go that way." Then, the man
walked away. A second man
walked up to him, handed him his
passport and visa and just as
mysteriously departed. In sum, a
total of five or six men directed
Margolis to his plane. He
remembers this as being a
chilling experience.
"I WAS taking orders from
anyone," he says.
The Russians' biggest security
fear is the Russian people,
Margolis believes. The people are
sheeplike in their obeisance. In

Margolis.
When Margolis and Goodman
arrived back in New York City,
their cab from the airport was
mysteriously tailed The men are
still curious about who it could
have been.
WHILE RETURNING to the
airport several days later,
Margolis proudly told the cab
driver about the refuseniks in
Russia. The driver, overwhelmed
with excitement, proceeded to
involve the car in an accident. He
was a former refusenik.
Margolis has since sent letters
to several elected officials, in-
cluding President Carter,
describing his experience, hoping
that some positive action will
occur from it.
After all the excitement, one is
tempted to ask him whether he
would ever go back to the USSR.
"Not on your life," Margolis
says. "The next time they'll
probably keep me there."

TEL AVIV JTA Defense
Minister Ezer Weizman found
himself, during and after the
Cabinet meeting, in a sort of
splendid isolation. He did not
take it easy. He took it quite
bitterly.
And Like a true sabra, he made
no secret of his feelings. Weiz

Benin's No. 2 man in pursuing
the talks with the Egyptians.
Weizman, who went in Begins
name more than once to meet the
Egyptian leaders, suddenly
found Begin in an alliance with
Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan,
whose political way Weizman
cannot endorse.
WEIZMAN was disappointed
because he had the impression,
following his meeting with Prime
Minister Begin on June 16, two
days before the fateful Cabinet
meeting, that Begin had decided
to support his Weizman's
proposal for the reply to the
Americans with minor changes,
something of the sort involving
replacing the words, "permanent he (Dayan) is leading you by
status" to a "different status" in noses, and you do not
the Weizman proposal.
But when coming to the June
18 Cabinet session, Weizman
became aware that what Begin
endorsed was Dayan's proposal
with not a single phrase to cor-
respond to his own proposal, he
became angry, and at one jun-
cture he told his colleagues:
"Well, you seem to have satisfied
each other but you have evaded a
reply that will pierce the way to
the renewal of the negotiations.
Don't you see the inscription on
the wall?"
Apparently, Weizman did see
the inscription on the waD a
warning of a possible new war
because he rushed back to bis Tel
Aviv office after the Cabinet
meeting telling his dose col-
leagues and subordinates
something like: "Well, gen-
tlemen, I am going to devote
myself to make the army ready
for the future war."
IT WAS a hard statement It

Maariv said that "Weizman will
limit himself henceforth to ac-
tivities connected with his office

Weizman himself refused any
requests for interviews or public
statements. His close friends said
that Weizman will no more be
involved with political issues or
with the peace talks.
The Defense Ministry and the
Israeli army will be his first and
only concern But they indicated
Weizman was not considering
resignation.
Weizman did not conceal his
opinion about the government's
decision on the reply.
"It's bringing us to a cul-de-
sac and may even cause a deter-
ioration towards a military con-
frontation," he said.
WEIZMAN was angry, very
angry. The longer the debate
lasted, the more angry he
became. At a certain point, he
ordered his helicopter to the

Israel Faced Outright WarErlich
Last autumn, Israel faced outright war with
[Egypt, which was prevented only by Prime
[Minister Menachem Begins peace initiative and
[which eventually brought Sadat to Jerusalem.
iThis was disclosed recently by Simcha Krlich,
[Israel's Finance Minister, in a speech in Tel Aviv.
He refused to go into details, but observers
[noted that his disclosure seemed to explain the
[remarks of the former Chief of Staff Mordechai
IGur. who at the time warned that Sadat's visit
Icould be a trap to lull Israel's readiness.

The editors of the afternoon daily, Ma'ariv,
commenting on reports coming out of Christian
sectors of Lebanon alleging there are 400 Cuban
soldiers acting as "instructors" to the Palestinian
terrorists, cautions that such a report has to be
taken with a grain of salt. Despite the fact that
the central authorities in Lebanon are in a state of
chaos, it is hardly likely they would overlook the
involvement of 400 foreign military personnel,
according to Ma'ariv.
This is seen as especially true because of the
ideological character of such a foreign unit, which
would clearly threaten the stability of the Leba-
nese regime. There is a possibility that sometime
in the future the Cubans may surface in Lebanon.
However, for the time being, the reports
emanating from Christian quarters in Lebanon
appear to be nothing more than a dire prophecy
rather than an accurate account of the situation,
according to Ma'ariv.
'' I feel danger for the Jewish people Be it in
Argentina, Russia, South Africa, Israel. Some-

So warned Elie Wiesel, author and professor of
humanities at Boston University, in a luncheon
address to some 175 members of HIAS Women's
Division in New York.
Wiesel's remarks, interrupted by sporadic
applause, stressed the need for world Jewry to
"be more Jewish."
On public view in New York through July is

dating from the 19th century, was acquired

who describes it as "the eighth wonder of the
world."
The Torah is 4' i inches high and is housed in a

The Center will make contact with Geirim

Russians Sentence
Slepak, Nudel
Continued from Page 1
were arrested June 1 by Soviet
plainclothesmen who broke into
their apartment after the couple
displayed a banner from their
balcony demanding reunion with
their son in Israel.
Although Mrs. Slepak was also
charged with "malicious
hooliganism," she was released
after becoming ill. No date has
been set for her trial.
NUDEL. known as the
"guardian angel" of the Soviet
Jewish Prisoners of Conscience,
was arrested June 2 as she and 13
other Jewish activists demon-
strated against the arrest of the
Slepaks in Pushkin Square out-
side the apartment building
where the Slepaks live. All 14
demonstrators were arrested but
13 were released. Only Nudel was
charged.
Slepak, a 50-year-old electrical
engineer, has been seeking a visa
to emigrate to Israel for eight
years. He is a member of the
group of Soviet activists and dis-
sidents who are monitoring Mos-
cow's compliance with the human
rights provisions of the Helsinki
accords. Nudel has also been
seeking an emigration visa for
eight years-
President Carter said at a press
conference in Washington that he
does not consider the Slepak case
"a personal response" by the
Soviet Union to his human rights
campaign but an indication "of
whether or not the Soviet Union
can stand internal dissension and
monitoring of its actions by
private citizen groups."
Slepak, who has unsuccessfully
sought an emigration visa for the
past eight years, was a member
of the unofficial group monitor-
ing Soviet compliance with the
Helsinki Final Act.
CARTER NOTED that a
"substantial portion" of the
group's members "have now been
either harassed or imprisoned or
tiled and I think this is some-
thing that is continuing."
He said. "I have expressed in
the strongest possible terms,
both publicly and in diplomatic
channels, our concern about the
actions of the Soviet govern-
ment."
