on Oct. 2 and made their way to
South Florida via Vienna, Rome
and New York, will be cared for
temporarily by the Jewish
Family Service, until the Novo-

they speak virtually no English it
will be necessary for them to

Rabbi Moses Isserlis who lived in
Poland in the 16th century called
upon Rabbi Zoll last
assist him in locating any of his
family living in south Florida.
Isserlis, a survivor of 72 months
in three concentration camps,
had lost his entire family to the
Nazis and was most anxious to
locate his relatives here. In'
appreciation for Rabbi Zoll's
help, Isserlis made this pre-

Events Mark a Hero's Birthday
Sharansky's birthday will be the'
focus of a series of world-wide
events which will mark the
second anniversary of the arrest
and imprisonment of the young
Jewish hero in the Soviet Union,
it was announced by Ernest
Shalowitz, president of the
Washington Committee for
Soviet Jewry.
Scientists, lawyers, members
of congress and parliamentarians
in England, Canada, France,
Israel and the United States will
join in protest of Sharansky's
continued imprisonment, and call
attention to the fact that he is
being held following an illegal
trial held July 10, 1978. At the
trial no lawyer or witnesses for
the defense were allowed, con-
trary to Soviet law.
taking place in connection with
Mar. 15 the second an-
niversary of Sharansky's arrest
are being coordinated with
Avital Sharansky, wife of
Anatoly, and her brother,
Michael Stiglitz in Israel.
Mrs. Sharansky is presently
writing a book about her
husband's ordeal which is due to
be published soon. A film
detailing Sharansky's arrest and
the campaign for his freedom is
to be released in time for the Mar.
15 anniversary date.
Sharansky, who will be 31
years old, was sentenced to 13
years in labor camps and prisons,
found guilty of treason and anti-
Soviet agitation. The Soviets
claim he was working for a
foreign intelligence service,
presumably the CIA.
SHARANSKY actually broke
no Soviet laws but was working
for the human rights of Jews and
others in the Soviet Union, in
accord with Soviet law and in-
ternational agreements signed by
the USSR. He was acting in
accordance with the requirements
of the Helsinki accords which
require citizens to monitor their
country's behavior on rights of
citizens. '
A letter from Rep. Robert. F.
Drinan (D., Mass.) requesting
papal intervention on behalf of
imprisoned Soviet dissident
Anatoly Sharansky has been
received by Pope John Paul II,
Drinan announced this week.
Drinan, who chairs the
International Committee for the
Release of Anatoly Sharansky,
wrote to Pope John Paul II on
Nov. 12. In the letter, Drinan
called Sharansky's trial "a
mockery of justice and merely the
most prominent event in a long
and continuing series of attempts
to harass and intimidate Mr.
Sharansky and other Soviet Jews
and human rights advocates."
THE FIRST Roman Catholic
priest ever elected to the
Congress, Drinan said "in-
tervention by the Pope on behalf
of Anatoly Sharansky would be a
com facing demonstration of the
Vatican's overriding moral
concern for the dignity and
freedom of the individual."
In a letter sent to Drinan last
month. Presidential envoy
Robert F. Wagner told the
Massachusetts lawmaker "one of
my first official actions following
presentation of my letter of
credence as the personal envoy of
the President to the Vatican was
to transmit your letter to his
Wagner called the tran-
smitting of the Drinan letter "an
action which I consider very
appropriate because the
promotion of human rights is at
the core ol my consultations with
His Holiness and the Vatican."
THE SOVIET Government
must know by now that Anatoly
Sharansky's spirit will not be
broken," Drinan said.
Ben Sadoff, Gait Resident
Is Honored in Wisconsin
Hen Sadott, a Gait Ocean Mile
winter resident and contributor
to the Jewish Federation of Fort
Lauderdale, was recently honored
for his contributions in his home
town of Fond du Lac, Wis.
In a unique manner, Sadoff has
displayed in practical terms how
it is possible to support Fed-
eration activities both in one's
"home town" and also in the
second home.
Over his many years of philan-
thropic endeavors, Sadoff has
been accorded numerous honors
both nationally and in Fond du
Lac. In November 1977 he was
named "Citizen of the Year" by
his Elks Lodge for being "the
man who has given of himself for
so many years." Resolutions of
commendation from the Wis-
consin Legislature were
presented to Sadoff along with
many accolades from local
governmental and charitable
In November 1978 Sadoff was
honored by the Jewish National
Fund for his many and varied
contributions to Israel and "for
the gift of grateful Catholic resi-
dents who to date have raised
funds to plant a forest of trees
near Nazareth in memory of the
late Pope John Paul I." Ht was
awarded a large hand-inscribed
parchment noting his leadership
and contributions to Israel. One
of the speakers stated, "Ben
richly deserves every honor this
community can muster for him."
Sadoff's dedication to Jewish
causes has been an inspiration to
all who have been associated with

Andy YoungOr Andy Hardy?
Once again, U.S. Ambassador to the United
Nations Andrew Young is on the firing line, and
rightly so. Young took the opportunity in a
published interview to praise the Palestine
Liberation Organization and of calling its leader-
observers at the UN "decent human beings."
Just how decent, Mr. Young?
The PLO has assassinated the U.S. Ambassador
and Charge d'Affaires in the Sudan. During the past
ten years, the PLO has publicly and proudly claimed
responsibility for murdering over 1,000 innocent
civilians; held over 2,500 men, women and children
hostage; staged over 300 bombings all over the
world, and conducted 11 assorted assassinations in
nine countries, not counting the one in the Sudan.
Ambassador Young sees the PLO, this unique
organization in international terrorism, as a
"moderating influence" at the United Nations.
Just how moderating, Mr. Young?
It is the PLO which has repeatedly attacked and
undermined the Israel-Egypt peace talks. It is the
PLO which claims continuing responsibility for
bombings and other terrorist acts in Israel. It is the
PLO and its "non-aligned" Third World henchmen at
the UN which baffles every international effort to
establish peace in the Middle East.
With his injudicious comments, Ambassador
Young has given new strength and legitimacy to this
gang of murderers and in direct opposition to
established American policy.
Just whom does Ambassador Young represent
our own government or the Third World?
ORT's Hundredth Year
Organization for Rehabilitation Through
Training launched its 100th anniversary this week
with a national convention in New York City.
At the century mark of its existence, ORT could
proudly boast that some 100,000 men, women and
young people were enrolled in the vocational and
other programs of the organization in 24 countries in
the year 1978.
Furthermore, ORT statistics indicate that more
young people and adults, more Israelis and more
Soviet Jewish refugees were served by the
organization this past year than at any other time in
its history.
These were among the many facts revealed at
the New York conference by Harold Friedman,
American ORT Federation president, and they high-
light a distinguished career for the organization in
helping people learn to help themselves. We
congratulate ORT on its most auspicious an-
niversary occasion.
ONCE UPON a time, it was
flying saucers that captured the ...
imagination of people in an
almost pathological way. In
effect, UFO*s became a cult.
UFO's became the prophetic
wings of eagles signalling the
coming of a new messianic age.
With advancing earth technology
beating the brains of man to a
pulp, regimenting him and
limiting his freedom, it was not j
incomprehensible that inter- |
galactic technology would be his

NOW THAT more official
credence is being place in the
UFO phenomenon than ever
before, the cultic possibilities it
offers seem to be on the decline,

mythic, not physical: or else, he
I is mere superstition. You must
not be able to apprehend a savior
with your senses. Physical
saviors are charlatans. They do
not capture the spirit, fire the
imagination. They are but fairy
tales turned flesh.
This is why the more recent
phenomenon of religious cultism
has spread so rapidly. Religious
cults suggest that they can
release earthbound man from his
chains and send him off into the
peaceful silence of space in the
same way that UFO's no lunger
can now that UFO's have quasi-
official credence accorded them
because, increasingly, they are
assumed to be real.
What men need is the hope, the
dream more than the incarnation

traditional western faiths an-not
included among those who can
understand it. They fad to under
stand Jonestown because it is
inconceivable to them that a Jim
Jones, any Jim Jones, can
displace Judaism or Christianity
in the rational mind.
Hut the fact is that it is the
rational mind that seeks escape
from itself, particularly because
rationality and rationalism are
instruments of the traditional
explanations of the human
purpose More and more, the
rational mind of man looks upon
such explanations as noumenal
excuses for phenomenal miser}'.
FOR EXAMPLE, the world is
in its presently disastrous

relationship between the
phenomenal and the noumenal.

On Whose Money Did Hitler Flourish?

In the course of "blaming
German Jewish bankers" for
starting World War I, Henry
Ford bought The Dearborn
Independent in 1918 to help build
his fanatical case against the
Jews. In 1920, Adolf Hitler
purchased the Volkischer
Beobachter, thus providing
himself with a powerful in-
strument for his determination to
annihilate European Jewry.
Those who have the interest
and stamina for interlacing such
facts and dozens of others of-
fering new insights concerning
the rise, triumph, and ultimate

through Nazi party archives, the
Ford archives, and financial

set down the maddening story of
success attained by Alfred
Rosenberg, Kurt Ludecke, and
other Hitler agents in sucking
into the Fuehrer's counting

demon's machinery of murder.
Along the way, the Pools bring
us a new picture of the
willingness of widely known

Viscount Rothermere, Sir Henry

toria of Russia, and countless
others to help fill Nazi coffers.
To be sure, simply listing these
names is dangerous. Thyssen, for
example, powerful head of
Germany's United Steel Works,
made it possible for Hitler to

i! Shah's End a Serious Blow to Israel
Port of Eilat's Future Dim
Shah's departure and the
rise to power in Iran of new
political forces will have
far-reaching consequences
for Israel, according to
West European experts.
Practically the entire world,
including the superpowers,
will feel the political and
economic impact of the
change, but nowhere will
the shock be as powerful
and probably as lasting as
in Israel.
The Shah's departure spells
n the end of an Israeli dream: to
break through the wall of hate
which surrounds it by estab-
lishing close, even though in-
formal, ties with three countries
situated on the periphery of the
Arab world Turkey, Ethiopia
and Iran.
"hop over the besiegers" was set
in motion by Israel's late Premier
David Ben Gurion in the late
1950s. Within a couple of years
Israel seemed to have succeeded
in its attempt. Israeli experts and
advisors were stationed in all
three states. Economic ties, often
secret, were established and a
certain degree of political co-
operation became daily practice.
i Turkey, after its internal
political upheavals in the 1960s,
slipped out of this partnership,
but Israel continued to maintain
close and confident ties with Em-
peror Haile Selassie of Ethiopia
and Shah Reza Mohammed
Pahleviof Iran.
The 1974 Ethiopian army
putsch, which toppled Selassie
and brought a pro-Communist
regime to power, was a serious
blow which suddenly deprived
Israel of its main African base.
THE SHAH'S departure and
the rise to power of a Moslem
nationalistic regime will deprive
Israel of its last regional partner.
Economically. Israel will be
seriously hurt. It will be deprived
of Iranian oil which at one time
provided over 75 percent of
Israel's yearly consumption of
some nine million tons.
The current government in
Iran, headed by moderate Shah-
pur Hakhtiar has already an-
nounced that it will stop all oil
shipments to Israel.
Iran's next government, prob-
ably hand-picked by the Shah's
,u\nain opponent, Ayatullah
Kuhollah Khoumeini, will
probably adopt even stricter
measures to prevent Israel from
Obtaining even a drop of Iranian
THE CLOSING of the Iranian
oiltaps comes at a most incon-
venient time. In 1975, Israel
returned to Egypt, according to
the disengagement agreement,

supplied a large part of Israel's

needs. Now, Israel is about to
return to Egypt, according to the
Camp David agreement, the Suez
Gulf area with its rich offshore oil
Iran used Israel's Red Sea-
Mediterranean pipeline, running
from Eilat to Ashdod and Haifa,
for a large part of its own oil
exports to Western Europe. Eco-
nomic experts here say that over
20 million tons of Iranian oil used
to pass every year through the
Israeli overland line.
Now the pipeline will probably
be inoperative, depriving the
Israeli treasury of an important
income and dealing a serious
blow to Eilat.
In 1967. Israel was ready to go
to war when the Arabs closed the
approaches to the southernmost
Israeli port. Now, Eilat's
economy and its functional
purpose have been wiped out for
the time being, overnight.
ISRAEL HAS already ob-
tained promises of increased oil
shipments from Mexico and
Venezuela while the United
States, according to the Camp
David agreements, had pledged
itself to supply Israel with oil in
case of need. All these new oil
supplies will be far more com-
plicated to ship over, more ex-
pensive and more dependent on
international good will. Nor will
they save the Red Sea Mediter-
ranean pipeline.
The new Iranian regime will
also stop Israeli exports which,
last year, according to foreign
trade reports, totaled some $120
million. Israeli contracting com-
panies, such as Solel Boneh, had
at the time of the Iranian
upheaval, contracts for some
$300 million for the construction
of roads, schools, dams and large
industrial plants.
Many Israeli companies were
operating profitable branches in
Iran. The presence in the country
of some 80,000 Jews, many of
them with important positions in
various business fields, had
helped Israeli firms to implant
themselves in Teheran and a
number of provincial centers.
THE MOST serious blow will,
however, be in the political field.
The Shah's departure spells an
end to Israel's hope to contract
discreet but effective alliances
with non-Arab Moslem states in
the area and hop over the walls of
Arab enmity.
The main danger which Israel
faces will come from America
itself. According to West Euro-
pean experts, the Iranian crisis is
placing America on the horns of a
dilemma. It will have to choose
between supporting Israel, its
only remaining serious and
reliable ally in the area, to the
hilt, or backing the moderate
Arab regimes in Saudi Arabia
and Egypt.
Any such political backing will
entail increased American
pressures on Israel to give in to
Egyptian demands and sign the
peace treaty on which Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat has
staked his prestige and the
eventual survival of his regime.
Most West European govern-
ments believe that America will
opt in favor of the Arabs, and
that this new American approach
will become visible as soon as the
current mission by U.S. Ambas-
sador Alfred Atherton is over and
the Israeli-Egyptian talks are re-
newed on a ministerial level.

Rabbi Cautions Couples of 30 Years
Not to Let Marriage Go on Rocks
Jeuish Floridian Writer
In those so-called "golden
years of marriage," an increasing
number of couples are showing
up at marriage counselors and, in
many cases, even talking divorce.
"It's not only a Florida
problem. there are more and
more divorces today among those
married 20 to 30 years," says
Rabbi Mordecai L. Brill, D.D., a
psychoi herapist in Lauderhill.
The trend is partially due to
affluence, he says, with more
women better educated and
working today. And it's due to
greater expectations. "There's a
feeling I hat whatever years we
have left, we want to live to the
utmost of self-fulfillment. But
there is a thin line between self-
fulfillmi nt and selfishness."
AMONG THE many retirees
living in south Florida. Dr. Brill
says there may be a need for a
series ol readjustments. The
children are away; maybe the
husband no longer feels im-
portant if he's not working. The
wife may not be accustomed to
having him home all day; or she
may be the younger, healthier
one who is still working. They
may be in a new place and need to
make new friends as well. One
might be unhappy about being
here, still missing the relatives
and friends up north.
"If they had good com-
munication up to this point, there
is probably no problem," says
Dr. Brill. "But there may be
problems they previously swept
under the rug which they now
have to face."
When a couple first comes in
for counseling, they're pointing
fingers at each other, saying
"Change her change him."
"We try to turn those fingers
around to see what each can do to
be helpful rather than destruc-
tive," said Dr. Brill.
He doesn't tell his clients what
to do (friends and relatives do
enough of that) or attempt to
play God, but he does have some
words of caution: "Don't ever
run your partner down. Don't
step on his or her self-esteem.
One man who came to see him
recently said to his wife: "She
thinks I'm a shlemiel."
IT'S IMPORTANT that each
Dr. Mordecai Brill
have respect and trust and think
the partner is the greatest. "If
it's sincere, that's a great formula
for a happy marriage," said Dr.
Sometimes a couple's percep-
tions of the same situation are so
different that a counselor has to
smile and wonder if they were at
the same breakfast table, Dr.
Brill noted.
He said money is a frequent
source of conflict among couples.
Maybe she's the type who likes to
squirrel away the extra money,
afraid of taking risks. He might
like to put it to use by investing.
She may think he spends too
much on his fishing gear.
"Sometimes just talking about
the situation gives it perspective
and makes it not so important.
They may have to learn to budget
but with flexibility. Perhaps the
answer is what one couple Dr.
Brill counseled did. They each
had some "GKW" (God knows
what) money each week to spend
as they chose, to save or spend on
some crazy thing.
AS A GENERAL rule, Dr.
Brill recommends divorce only
where the health of one party is
undermined, in cases of wife
beating, for instance. He says
couples experience a lot of
anguish deciding whether or not
to divorce, and he feels too many
divorce in haste and repent at
leisure. Some even foolishly use
divorce as a threat. "Weigh the
alternatives; you may have to
settle for the best of three."
He frequently mentions
keeping in mind the Serenity
Prayer, used by Alcoholics
Anonymous groups, among
others. It reads: "Dear God,
grant me the serenity to accept
the things I cannot change, the
courage to change the things I
can; and the wisdom to dis-
tinguish one from the other."
A certain acceptance is neces-
sary in developing a wholesome
philosophy, says Dr. Brill.
About that male retiree who
suddenly feels unimportant, Dr.
Brill suggests: "See that your
condominium is well run. Find a
worthwhile hobby. Not every-
body is suited to visit a nursing
home, but many organizations
need volunteers. Of course, what
you can do depends on health and
energy level. If a man isn't
healthy, time can hang heavy."
Then it may be necessary to call
on the Serenity Prayer again.
AT A RECENT Kallah week-
end of the Sisterhood of Beth
David in Miami, Dr. Brill spoke
on coping with the pressures of
modern life. "First we need good
physical health and then a sense
of perspective,'' he said. "Think
about how you'll feel six months
from today about what is
worrying you now." He stressed
the importance of adaptability,
open-mindedness and the ability
to relax.
And he spoke on the "Jewish
Family Its Stress in Modern
Times" at the recent Florida
State Conference of the American
Jewish Congress in Miami. At
that session, he observed that the
Jewish family is subject to all the
tensions and pressures of every
family, "but for us it is even more
serious because Judaism is
uniquely a family-centered
"If by some misfortune, all
synagogues would disappear,
Judaism could still survive
through the home," he noted.
"The ancient rabbis called the
home a small sanctuary, and the
late Dr. Abraham Heschel
described the Jewish home as one
of Judaism's great master-
Today, "strangely enough,"
says Dr. Brill, there is a return to
Orthodoxy, and many young
people, in their search for
meaning, are looking back to the
rituals their grandparents used in

"IF THEY'RE searching for

"Today, when children don't
even know their first cousins,
there is no sense of rootedness
that we had in the days of the
extended family when the small
business was downstairs from
Today we need a substitute for
that extended family, said Dr.
Brill. The synagogue and Jewish
Community Center help to
provide it, but a sense of personal,
involvement has been lost.
To counteract this trend, on
the West Coast and in some
northern communities, small
groups of 10 to 12 families within
the congregation have formed
rhavurot. Families in the same
neighborhood share holidays,
study religious literature and
take the place of immediate
family at times such as bereave-
ment. "This carries the idea that^
the Jewish community shares in
joys and sorrows."
DR. BRILL can see the
possibility of a similar develop-
ment in south Florida, where the
community is so transient that

Carter Eyes Calling Second
Middle East Summit Conference
Administration's chief
spokesmen at the White House
and State Department appeared
to soften President Carter's
assertion that he "wants" the
Israeli-Egyptian peace process
"expedited" and would "not
hesitate" to call another summit
conference if that became
Israeli officials said in
Jerusalem in reaction to Carter
that Prime Minister Menachem
Begin would willingly participate
in another summit meeting with
President Anwar Sadat of Egypt.
Secretary Jody Powell,
responding to reporters'
questions, said that develop-
ments between Israel and Egypt
would not "by any means" make
a summit meeting "inevitable."
Carter made his remarks in an
address in Atlanta at ceremonies
honoring the late Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. and again to
reporters as he boarded his plane
to return to Washington. They
seemed to signal a reversal of
what appeared to be the U.S.
position when Secretary of State
Cyrus Vance told a press con-
ference that "we are taking our
time" to find ways to reconcile
the differences between Egypt
and Israel.
Only two days later, the U.S.
stepped up thj pace of its Middle
Fast activities with Ambassador
Alfred Atherton's trip to Israel
and Fgypt to attempt to over-
come the differences between the
two countries over the American
peace treaty draft. Atherton is
being accompanied by Herbert
Hansell. the State Department's
legal advisor, and David Korn
who is in charge of the Depart-
ment's Israel Desk.
ASKED WHAT prompted
Carter's statements in Atlanta,
State Department spokesman
Hodding Carter said, "I can't
offer motives" as to "what has
happened," but "both sides have
expressed willingness to com-
plete the (peace) process." White
House aides said earlier that
Carter decided to interject his
Middle East comments at the
King memorial during his flight
to Atlanta.
Powell, who was pressed as to
the significance of the President's
remarks, told reporters that "it is
our view that we are always
willing to do what we can to bring
peace to the Middle East and the
resultant benefits that will flow
from it."
He added, "But whether or not
there will be peace will be
determined by the governments
of Egypt and Israel. That is the
bottom line on the matter." He
repeated that caveat later when
he observed that the President
had "underscored our willingness
to do everything we could but in
the final analysis if there is peace
in those two nations they will
have to be the ones who will bring
it about."

IN HIS first question. Rabbi

there brought two things home to
him: That his great-great-great
grandparents had been slaves
and that Jews have, over the cen-
turies, endured the suffering of
the damned."
Citing this bond, Davis advo-
cated that Blacks and Jews
should always be "locked in" en
twining his fingers for emphasis.
Nothing that he had seen too
many people "wiped out either
emotionally or by bullets." he
stressed trie responsibility people
should have towards one another,
adding, "If you let one (injustice)
slide by. and think it won't touch
you, you are absolutely insane."
TURNING TO other topics,
Rabbi Berkowitz asked if it is
better to be loved or respected,
and Davis, searching for an
answer, replied: "Only a rabbi
would ask that question," adding
that he would opt for love, which
to him includes respect.
Nodding his agreement. Rabbi
Berkowitz added that love is "the
higher dimension," and turning
to Davis, exclaimed: You are
lovable." To much applause,
Davis jumped up and embraced
the Rabbi.
Of his conversion to Judaism,
Davis recalled his difficulty in
convincing both skeptical
acquaintances and very close
friends that he needed a reason to
exist "beyond the applause," and
that after much reading, soul-
searching, and an automobile
crash that cost him an eye, he
had concluded that Judaism was
essential to his survival, a
decision that subjected him to
cruel, tasteless jokes about
Jewish "Niggers."
BUT HE knew his ordeal had
not been in vain, as he witnessed
his son Mark's Bar Mitzvah, an
event made possible by his
former wife, actress Mai Britt,
"the grandest lady," who was
willing to drive Mark 80 miles,
three times a week, for his
religious training.
Davis also talked of the
meaning of friendship, his im-
pressions of Israel, where he had
been delighted to find many
"dark-skinned Jews," and of his
love of the Yiddish theater, which
he had frequented since boyhood.
"They didn't bother me down
there," he recalled, noting that
although he didn't understand "a
word they were saying," he was
able to respond, laughing and
crying along with the Yiddish-
speaking audience.
As for his own career. Davis
was asked if there is any truth to
the rumor that he will soon be ap-
pearing as "Tevye" in a Black
Fiddler on the Roof, and he
promptly became convulsed with
RECOVERING, he explained
that a scene in the recent
production of Stop the World, in
which he performed with a
Yiddish inflection, might have
given risen to such speculation,
but that in his opinion, Zero
Mostel's portrayal of the dairy-
man who converses with God
should stand alone.
"You respect certain things."
he added, "and a Black Fiddler
would be stretching loo far .
It's a matter of taste."
Concerning the role of prayer
in his life. Davis declined to com-
ment, explaining, "That is very
personal between man and
his maker." Davis is deeply com-
mitted to formal observance
though, and recalled how he once
stood up to no less a personage
than the late movie mogul.
Samuel Goldwyn, who had in-
sisted on filming during the High
Holy Days.
WHEN DAVIS asked to be
excused for 24 hours, Goldwyn
had scoffed, but relented when

he believed that nevertheless the
two communities have a "suf-
ficient basis of understanding
and sympathy" to work together
on issues of mutual concern.
He concluded by making a plea
for continued dialogue but added
that Catholics and Jews must
do more than just talk." He
particularly cited social justice as
a common concern for working
together and said that Christians
have "admired and learned" from
the commitment of the Jewish
community to social justice.

interreligious relations, a report
prepared by Theodore Freedman,
director of the program division

fpom Chinese Buddhist
to isp&eli RestauRateuR
Selina Shing was born a
Chinese Buddhist 29 years ago in
Hong Kong. Today, she owns
and manages the only Viet-
namese restaurant in Israel. As a
successful businesswoman,
mother, Israeli, and Jewess, she
happily exclaims that after ten
years of wandering, she has at
last found a home.
Her fascinating odyssey began
ten years ago when she journeyed
west aboard an ocean freighter,
making ends meet by working in
the ship's laundry. Landing in
southern France after stops in
Thailand, Singapore, Ceylon,
India, South and West Africa,
Selina ventured into Switzerland.
FOR THE next six years she
lived and worked in Zurich. There
she met and married her first
husband; had her first child,
Danny, and met Jewish people
for the first time.
The Swiss people were nice but
not very friendly towards me,"
Selina recalls. "The Jewish
people I met took me into their
community, synagogue and
homes. They were very open and
made me feel good."
Selina, still restless, returned
twice to see her family in Hong
Kong, and also traveled to the
U.S. and Canada. In 1974 she
took a two-week trip to Israel,
with no intention of staying. She
smiles warmly when she tells of
her initial experiences.
"PEOPLE WERE so friendly
and so practical," she said.
"You'll think this is really silly
but Israelis made a big im-
pression on me. The stores were
filled with products without a lot
of expensive packaging."
Returning twice, so as to be
absolutely certain she wanted to
live in Israel, Selina applied for a
tourist visa and came again the
following year, leaving behind an
unhappy marriage and the cold
winter days she so dreaded.
Selina and Danny moved into a
small, furnished apartment in Tel
Aviv and began to settle down.
Selina, who possesses classic
Oriental features, enrolled first in
an evening course to learn
Hebrew. She is fluent in Chinese
and English and also speaks
German, so she had relatively
little difficulty in learning to
speak, read and write Hebrew.
After two months of study, she
decided to switch to a religious
program and become a Jewess.
FOR THE next six months
Selina attended a demanding
program conducted under the
auspices of the Rabbinate and
funded by the Israel Govern-
ment. Attending classes five full
days a week, she learned the
concepts, rituals, practices and
history of Judaism.
Selina had to pass eleven tests
and a final two hundred question
examination. She took her ritual
bath in the mikvah, was renamed
Sarah Abraham, and officially!
joined the peoplehood of Israel.
After a second disastrous
marriage, and a second child,!
Dana, Selina tells of her struggle
to survive as a new immigrant in
a country she characterizes "as a
very tough place to live." She
notes that born Israelis, mainly
for economic reasons, "are
leaving to make money
For a few years, Selina held a
number of different jobs, mostly
clerical. Working in the computer
center of the Tel Aviv Hilton, she
became convinced she had the
ability and determination to
begin her own business.
MI AM a good cook and my
friends alway ..old me to open a
restaurant here," ahe said. She
met a Chinese man and they
decided to go into partnership.
Selina, now Sarah, shown with her children in their Tel Aviv
When plans were being
finalized to open a Chinese
"carry-out," Selina by chance
met a group of Vietnamese
refugees who were settled by the
Israeli government in the
development town of Ofakim in
the northern Negev.
Curiously, they too were of
Chinese origin and after several
days of deliberation, Selina hired
four of the refugees and opened
Israel's first Vietnamese
"I wanted to offer something
new on the Israeli scene," she
recalled. The cook was sent to
London and Paris to purchase the
appropriate spices and equip-
ment, and in September last year
"Selina's Vietnam" opened its
Tel Aviv municipal building and
plaza, and crowded among
Arabic, Italian, and Chinese
eating establishments, Selina's
restaurant seats 50 persons
inside and outside, under at-
tractive, umbrella-topped tables
and chairs. Inside, the decor is
distinctly Oriental with lovely
hanging plants and rice prints.
The Vietnamese provide cour-
teous and excellent service, and
can now speak basic Hebrew.
Selina's warmth and personal
touch come through to every
person who enters her restaurant.
Freshly bought meats and
vegetables obtained daily from
local markets are delicately
spiced, and are popular with
Israelis and tourists alike. In just
a few short months Selina has
achieved a reputation for serving
outstanding Vietnamese dishes
at moderate prices.
Petite, intelligent, and
determined, Selina is willing to
work seven days a week, often
until closing time after midnight
to make her business a success.
She talks of opening up a second
restaurant or expanding the
present one to meet the growing
AND WHAT of the future?
She and her children are now
fluent in Hebrew and converse in
the language at home. "My son,
Danny, is eight years old, and he
is fully accepted by his friends,"
his mother said. The Jewish
Agency has provided her with a
low-interest loan to buy an
apartment near the restaurant.
"I am very happy here this is
my home," she noted.

Atlanta Jeway
Strangers Within the Gate City: The Jews of
Atlanta, 1845-1915. By Steven Hertzberg.
Philadelphia: Jewish Publication Society, 325p.,
THIS HISTORY of the Jews of Atlanta ("Gate
City of the New South") forms a significant contri-
bution toward understanding the unique experience
of a distinctive American Jewish group. Utilizing the
techniques of the "new social history," Hertzberg
has compiled data on nearly every Jew who resided in
Atlanta during the period of his scrutiny.
As background for his study of Atlanta Jewry, the
author, a young historian trained at the University of
Chicago, notes the special paradoxes that have
marked the experience of Southern Jews:
"MERCHANTS IN a land dominated by an
agrarian ideal, religious dissenters in a Christ-
haunted land, venerators of learning in a society
plagued by illiteracy, victims of violence and
religious prejudice who took sanctuary in a section
characterized by a militant spirit and racial op-
pression, and foreigners in a hotbed of xenophobia,
they lived the drama of isolation, accommodation,
and mobility."
The formal history of the Atlanta Jewish com-
munity begins with the settlement of the first Jews
in the city in 1845. The major influx, however, oc-
cured after the Civil War, when the city emerged as a
regional metropolis whose Jewish community was
one of the largest in the South.
The half-century following the war the prime
focus of this study began with the Jewish new-
comers being welcomed as harbingers of commerical
opportunity, and it was during this period that many
of the community's enduring institutions were
established. It ended with the notorious Leo Frank
case of 1913-15, in which a virulent outbreak of anti-
Semitism culminated in the lynching of a Jewish
factory superintendent wrongfully convicted of
murdering a gentile girl.
ATLANTA JEWRY was shattered by the Leo
Frank case, "one of the great causes celebres of the
twentieth century and perhaps the most lurid
manifestation of anti-Semitism in American
However, as the author describes in the epilogue
that brings his story up to date, the Atlanta Jewish
community revived from the tragedy, sharing with
their non-Jewish neighbors in the city's increasingly
booming economic and cultural development.

and defensive magnetic field from

body by the "Super Agency of

schoolboy, Uri Fink.
he learned his English entirely
from the funnies and adventures
which he began reading at the
age of seven. A budding
caricaturist, his "life-long"
ambition to write a comic book of
his own came to function when
David Herman, a Jerusalem
publisher took an interest. He
produces various levels of an
English language newspaper for
Israeli junior and high school
A modern language graduate
from Cambridge, Herman comes
from Chelsea, London. He settled
in Israel 18 years ago and after a
spell as an English teacher saw
the need for a contemporary
newsheet for pupils of English.
After consultation with the
education authorities, he is
confident that this latest idea will
also be employed to help Israeli
children improve their command
of English.
"The fact that comics are not
an anathema shows how forward-j
looking our English language
schools administrators have be-
come. Five years ago, they
wouldn't have considered using
this as a teaching aide," he says.
"Shin 18," Sabraman's
codename, doubles up as Dan
Bar-On, an ex-Army captain in
everyday life. But unlike his
American alter-egos (whom Uri
literally worships), he is not an
independent self-styled agent on
behalf of "good" in the battle
against "evil." He performs his
miraculous superhuman feats to
ward off dangers to the State as
the servant of, and on the in-
structions from the higher
authorities in Israel.
like glasses and pert innocent
face Uri bears a distinct
resemblance to Clark Kent, he
points to another difference
between his creation and
Superman. Both are very
patriotic and serve international
good, but Sabraman's powers are
limited. They must be
periodically replenished. That
makes him "more human," Uri
"What attracts me about
making a comic is not only that
you're expressing yourself, but
that you're like a theatre
producer controlling all the
characters at once. Most of all
though, I like the experience of a
totally different reality." Uri
With that, he also wants to
give a sense of Israel to the
readers. He steers away from
politics (Sabraman's mortal
enemies are not mere terrorists,
but other super-human agents)
but will not balk at showing the
"unpleasantries as well as the
nice things about Israel." An
example, he says, is the pain of
traveling on a packed number
four bus in Tel Aviv, as I have to
do every day to go to school."
IN THE next edition,
Sabraman may inherit an Arab
assistant, and we may also see
the emergence of "the Angle" (A
religious Jew "my own
favorite character, though I'm
not myself at all religious,'' says
Uri), as he tries to reflect the
various elements in the Israeli

Mothers Pleading to Take
Their Children to Israel
TEL AVIV (JTA) An Israeli who just returned
from Iran claimed that Jewish mothers there pleaded with
him to "take our children to Israel" because they ex-
pected "terrible things" to happen after the Shah left. Ac-
cording to Itzhak Meir, director of the Yemin Orde Youth
School, some 300 Jewish children have already been
brought to Israel from Iran, leaving their parents behind,
and several hundred other Iranian Jews are waiting to be
transferred to Israel.
MEIR SAID he was sent to Iran by the Jewish
Agency on a mission to rescue Jewish children. He
reported that Jews there are becoming increasingly
alarmed about their future. He said that by chance he was
at Teheran airport on the day when the plane carrying the
Shah into exile took off without any ceremony. He said a
jubilant Iranian soldier fired his rifle into the air, narrowly
missing a Jewish Agency worker from Israel.

Khoumeini asserted that "We are
against Israel, and we will never
help Israel. We will cut off all
diplomatic relations. However,
sending our army against Israel
in any future probable war needs
a thorough study, and at this
time 1 do not have anything to
say on that."
The Ayatullah's statement
came in response to a reporter's
question on the CBS-TV
program, Fare the Nation. The
reporter had asked him if he
would put Iran's army into action
Ugainst Israel if there were
another war in the Middle East.
The interview was conducted in

denied that he had made any
anti-Semitic statements. This
response was in conflict with
passages in a book based on
lectures he delivered in Persian in
Iraq in 19~0, Islamic Govern-
ment. The little-known book,
published in Arabic, quotes him
as expressing extreme hostility
against Jews, whom he accuses of
plotting against Islam" and
preparing the way to rule over
the entire planet.
It was learned here, mean-
while, that the Jewish Agency
has been forced to close down its
offices in Teheran because of anti-
Israel and anti-Jewish threats.
The Agency has been trying to
convince Iranian Jews to leave
for Israel at once but conditions
in Teheran are such that aliya
activity is almost impossible

U.S. Denies Change of
Policy Toward the PLO
WASHINGTON (JTA) The State Department
aid this week that the views expressed on the Palestine
liberation Organization by the U.S. Ambassador to the
Inited Nations, Andrew Young, are Young's "personal
bservations" and represent no policy change by the U.S.
oward the PLO. The Department's chief spokesman,
lodding Carter, stressed that Young "understands and
upports our policy regarding the PLO."
He was responding to questions about Young's
statements in an interview with Interdependent, the
>rgan of the United Nations Association of the United
States, that American diplomacy is hampered by the lack
of "effective relationship with the Palestinian people."
influence" of the PLO in Arab countries. Young stopped
short of advocating recognition of the terrorist
The envoy said the basic reasons for the absence of a
link between the U.S. and the PLO is that Israel is op-
posed to it. "I don't necessarily quarrel with that, because
I thinlrthat Israel is going to have to make the decisions
about how it's going to relate to the Palestinian people,"
he said.
Despite Israel's opposition. Young added, the U.S.
"should have some way of relating to the Palestinian
people." He noted that Washington is "working on" this,
but hasn't "reached a conclusion."
resentatives as "very skilled politicians and very intel-
ligent, decent human beings." He said they have acted as
a "modferating influence" in the UN and that he would
favor djing business with the PLO at the world body
becausfeit would bolster those elements in the PLO who
favor atf'political process to ^Deration" rather than ter-
rorism and the destruction of Israel.
Thf basic reason for what Young termed the
frustration of Camp David accords is that the
Palestinians do not feel that the accords assure them the
self-determination they want. A link between the U.S. and
the PLO would solve that, Young noted, adding, "that's
what we are working on."
HOODING CARTER was asked if Young's state-
ments mean that the U.S. is undertaking "a serious
review of policies" toward thd'PLO. He replied "no," and
added, "We have not changed our policy regarding the
PLO. Our only contacts with the PLO in New York City
and nowhere else are incidental and related to our
responsibilities as host country to the UN."
Carter said, "We have sought to engage Palestinians
in the process described in thJ Camp David agreements.

Rabbis Ponder How
Much Will Assure
Binding Peace
Religious Jews in Israel and
overseas are no less divided than
secular Jews over the issue of
compromises for peace,
specifically how much territory
Israel should be prepared to give
up in exchange for a full and
binding peace with its Arab
neighbors. For secular Jews, the
primary consideration is the
effects territorial withdrawals
will have on Israel's security.
There is another dimension,
however, for religious Jews.
They regard areas such as
J udaea and Samaria to be part of
Eretz Israel Eretz Hakodesh,
or the Holy Land. For the
religious Jew this means that the
land must be defended and going
to war to defend that land is an
aspect of kiddush hashe (ready to
give one's life for God's sake). It
is seen as a "war of miuvah."
BUT THIS runs smack into
another issue, that of the
possibility of loss of life in a war
and its impingement on the
commandment of pikuah nefesh
(saving life). The question arising
from this situation is how to
reconcile or relate kidush hashem
with pikuah nefesh in terms of
defending Eretz Israel.
One Orthodox scholar, Rabbi
Emanuel Rackman, president of
Bar Ilan University, has ad-
dressed himself to the problem of
when the commandment of
pikuah nefesh takes precedence
over the commandment of kidush
hashem. Put another way, is the
saving of lives more important
than Israel's rule over what the
Orthodox regard as the entire
"land of Israel.''
Many other rabbinical and
Orthodox lay leaders have
debated this matter. One
prominent scholar, Rabbi Joseph
Soloveitchik of Boston, has

ransom, a frequent reason for
abductions in El Salvador, is not
considered inaccurate.
WHILE MOST of those kid-
napped are natives, six foreign
businessmen in that Central
American country were kid-
napped last November and
December, and three, two Britons
and a Japanese, are still missing.
A Japanese industrial
executive was the first seized. He
was killed. Later, a Swede and a
Dutchman were kidnapped and
released after reportedly paying
ransoms. The missing Japanese
was seized Dec. 7 and the two
British men were kidnapped Nov.
All these abductions took place
in downtown Salvador. A
wealthy Salvadorean was kid-
napped Dec. 20 and released
some days later after reportedly
paying ransom. No American
citizens have been kidnapped.
expressed the view that saving
lives is superior lo all other
considerations, even from a
religious point of view. However,
the question is not clear cut.
Who, for example, is to decide
when or where pikuah nefesh
takes precedence over a "war of
RACKMAN, formerly the
senior rabbi at the Fifth Avenue
synagogue in New York and a
former professor of Judaic
studies at City University in New
York, takes the view of the late
president of Yeshiva University,
Dr. Samuel Belkin. Belkin
maintained that knowledgeable
laymen should be consulted
before halachic decisions are
made. A rabbi will sanction
eating on Yom Kippur if a
qualified physician orders it to
save a life.
Rackman believes this should
apply to political matters as well.
Although he does not consider
himself a dove, he supports
Soloveitchik's opinion that
pikuah nefesh should always be
the dominant consideration and
that war, therefore, should be
averted by all means. Never-
theless, Rackman insists that
whatever concessions are made to
avoid war, Israel can never give
up Judaea and Samaria.
He holds that Jews have a
God-given right to settle those
territories and believes they can
co-exist there with the Arabs just
as Arabs live in Israel. He
doesn't think that Jews will ever
be a majority on the West Bank
and therefore is suspicious of
Arab insistence that Jewish
settlement be stopped. According
to Rackman, that attitude puts
into question Arab sincerity to
make peace with Israel.
THE IDEAL situation, he
said, would be a mature society in
which dual sovereignty is
possible, meaning two languages
and two flags on the West Bank,
with the residents there able to
choose between Israeli or Jor-
danian citizenship. As for
Jerusalem, however, Rackman
believes there can be only Jewish
sovereignty, although Arab
residents could have the right to
vite for the Jordanian
television series dealing with the
Nazi murder of six million Jews,
which began Tuesday night. But.;
they have to tune in to one of the
regional stations which,
collectively, atttact only 1.5-3
percent of the viewers. The^
decision to shunt the series to the
regional channels instead of one
of the national networks has
aroused angry debate here.
Critics contend that while the
Germans felt morally obligated
to purchase the series from NBC
which gained record ratings
when it was aired in the U.S. last
year they are burying it.
that they could not preempt the
many hours of national channel
programs for the purpose of
showing Holocaust. But this has
not prevented them from
preempting regular shows for
soccer games.
The debate has been
aggravated by violence. A
documentary on the Nazi per- >
secution of Jews that was being
shown on regional channels last
Wednesday night as a prelude to
Holocaust, was knocked off the
air when a bomb destroyed
transmission lines leading to an
antenna. The authorities blamed
right-wing extremists for the
outrage. A group calling itself the

Israel Bonds Mission to Israel Breakfasts to Kick Off
Plans are underway to make
Ihe Florida Israel Bonds Mission
Israel the most exciting in
__ent memory, according to
jary R- Gerson, general chair-
nan, and William Littman,
Jroward chairman. They said
that one of the trip's highlights
vill be the return to Miami on El
\l's inaugural flight from Tel
Vviv, the first for that airline to a
Second city in the United States.
The Mission will depart from
JMiami International Airport on
|\lareh 25 and will return on April \
3. Details include roundtrip air-
fare from Miami, accom-
modations for seven nights at
five-star deluxe hotels in Israel,
breakfast and dinner daily, full
sightseeing and all entrance fees,
plus service charges.
They explained that this
Mission is unique because par-
ticipants will be following an
itinerary and plans arranged and
approved by the Prime Minister's
Office. "Because this trip in-
volves the first El Al flight to
Florida from Tel Aviv, special
arrangements are being made to
visit an Israeli airbase, to meet
with members of Parliament at
the Knesset and to have a rededi-
cation ceremony atop Masada,"
they said.
They added that there will be
special dinners and meetings
with top Israeli leaders and par-
ticipants will be accompanied by
political dignitaries and members
of the press. Additional informa-
tion can be obtained by calling

CAIRO President Anwar
Sadat this week flatly rejected a
suggestion by U.S. Envoy Alfred
Atherton that Sadat and Israel
Prime Minister Menachem Begin
have a face-to-face meeting in an
effort to get the stalled Israel-
Egypt peace negotiations back
on track.
Sadat said that without the
presence of President Carter, he
would not hear of it.

State Department officials in
Washington, he has a "full

According to Eliahu Ben-
Elizar, chief negotiator for Israel,
attempts to reopen peace
negotiations are proceeding "at
cruising speed." At the same
time, he said that only "slight
progress" had been made since
Atherton's arrival in the Middle
East last week.
Atherton met with Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan, and the
main focus of their talks was on
Article VI, to which the U.S. is
now proposing to attach a letter
addressed to Israel in which
Washington would define its own
view of the "priority of
obligations" issue hopefully to
Israel's satisfaction.
have confirmed that there has
been virtually no movement on
the third legal-textual issue of
Article VI, with only slight
progress being made in talks on
Article IV, the "Review Clause"
of the treaty.
Meanwhile, in Jerusalem, the
Cabinet earlier this week took a
series of decisions regarding the
issues involved in Atherton's
mission, but it resolved not to
publish them in advance of
Atherton's bringing them per-
sonally to the knowledge of
Egypt's leaders.
The envoy met for a final
working session with Israeli
diplomats and legal experts
under Premier Begin's political
aide, Dr. Ben-Elissar. Atherton
was also expected to confer with

Atherton talks here and further
refined in contacts between
Atherton and Washington, on
Article VI, paragraph 5 (the
"priority of obligations" clause).
The U.S. is suggesting that
this letter, from America to
Israel, be part of the entire treaty
package, alongside the earlier
U.S. interpretative letter to
Egypt on Article VI, paragraph
Israel rejected, and still
rejects, that interpretative letter
to Egypt, on the grounds that it
did not recognize the priority of
the peace treaty over Egypt's
inter-Arab defense commitments.
THE NEW U.S. draft letter to
Israel apparently seeks to clarify
the U.S. view that Egypt's inter-
vention on the side of another
Arab state against Israel would
be legitimate only if Israel had
launched a blatantly unprovoked
attack on the Arab state.

children will be able to learn
Jewish history, customs and

learning English and help in
locating employment, according
to Shelly Soloman, Jewish
Family Service staffer who is

Ms. Soloman at 735-3394.
