Leo Goodman honoring his
leadership during two one-year
terms as president of Federation.
He was unable to receive the
award in person at the meeting
attended by more than 300
persons because he is recovering
from surgery but the applause
of the audience and the best
wishes that were expressed for
his recovery attested to the high
regard and esteem the Jewish
community feels for Leo.
Other honors accorded in-
cluded the election of Samuel L.
Cireenberg, a Woodlands resident
for eight years who had been a
New York state senator for 30
years until retiring to North
Broward County, as an honorary
member of the Federation's
board of directors, joining
Samuel Goldfarb and Samuel M.
Soref in that select group.
Milton Keiner, presiding in the
absence of Leo Goodman, was
honored for his role as general
chairman of the 1980 record-
breaking United Jewish Appeal,
as waa Victor Gruman, the
campaign'* vice chairman.

Division, for her efforts as

UJA Campaign; Michael
Weinberg, the Young Leadership

Israel Has Had Meetings with Jordan's King Hussein

From JTA Services
Ironically, just a couple of days after Prime Minister
Menachem Begin, for the first time, revealed that efforts
had been made to have Jordan's King Hussein make
peace with Israel concerning the West Bank, a terrorist
attack was launched from Jordan.
Begin was quick to report that the government of
Jordan was not responsible for the attack which took place
M Saturday, June 7. He said two of the terrorists were killed
by an Israeli Army Patrol in the skirmish south of the
IJead Sea near Israel's border with Jordan. Others were
chased back.
Hussein is reportedly coming, finally, to meet with
President Carter at the White House.
Concerning the talks with Hussein, Begin told an editor
of The Atlanta Constitution that negotiations were started
several years ago during the Labor Party's ad-
ministration. Various emissaries met with the King. In
more recent talks, Israel offered Jordan territorial com-
promises which would give Jordan parts of Judea and
Samaria, and a free port at Haifa, with Israel retaining
total control of Jerusalem and maintaining troops at
strategic points in the West Bank.
Hussein insisted on total control of the entire West
Bank and East Jerusalem.
Begin has repeatedly said: "Jerusalem is our capital. It
will not be divided." He also revealed that Israel will stop
building settlements after 10 more are completed. He said:
"The next batch of settlements will be the last set-
tlements. This is the end of our settlement policy."
In Washington, the State Department reported it
opposes "unilateral steps on existing settlements or new
settlements which might undercut" the Palestinian
autonomy negotiations.
Those talks are expected to resume soon with Israel and
Egypt sending their top negotiators to discuss the
resumption with U.S. Special Ambassador Sol Linowitz.

the importance of the new JCC to
the local Jewish community and,
as such, the Jewish Federation
gives the JCC a large percentage
of its local budget and, in part-
nership, serves Greater Fort
Lauderdale Jewry. The JCC is
the largest local beneficiary
agency of the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
The meeting was highlighted
by President Perlman's "State of
the JCC Address," in which she
lauded the efforts of all the
volunteers who made the year
one of tremendous "progress and
William Goldstein, executive
director of the JCC, presented
"The 80's Our Decade for

expectations and needs of the
Center, in order to insure that the
80's are indeed a decade of major
growth and progress.
On the occasion of this
momentous first annual meeting
held on the Perlman Campus, two
significant traditions were estab-

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Friday. June 20. jc


Tl nil %jZK f f/ Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale is planning a Community Mission to Israel October 16-26, 1980
// you are interested in visiting Israel on an exciting
"^" Jewish Federation 484-8200
Visit Israel: A Land, A People
Jewish history began and stopped in the
Middle East and then was reborn 32 years
ago into a land of freedom. On this land in 32
years, the Jewish people transformed a 4,000-
year old dream into reality. During those tur-
bulent years, and continuing into today and the
years beyond, a partnership was forged between
Eretz Yisrael and the Diaspora.
Keep that partnership alive. Join the Greater
Fort Lauderdale Federation's Community
Mission to Israel Oct. 16-26. You'll depart on
Thursday and be greeted on arrival Friday by
Israeli children and the Prime Minister's
emissary. You'll have time to rest and then
participate in a most sacred, meaningful
moment, the Kabbalat Shabbat at the Western
Wall in Jerusalem, followed by a festive Shabbat
dinner and Oneg Shabbat program.
And then follows eight days of the most
memorable, exciting experiences touring Israel
with knowledgeable guides, enjoying home
hospitality with Israelis, meeting top officials of
the nation.
All this and much more because nobody can
put a value on your memories of a trio such as
this for $1745 per person for all trans-
portation, deluxe hotels and most meals. To be
eligible to go on this Community Mission, this
historic journey to the land of our forefathers, a
couple must pledge a minimum of $2500 to the
1981 United Jewish Appeal Campaign of the
Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
Minimum commitment for a single person to be
eligible for the Mission is $2,000. These pledges
are payable throughout 1961. Call Jan Salit at
the Fed-ration office 484-8200.
Young Leaders Flying to Israel
Nine people will depart
Monday, Jury 1, for what they
believe will be their "trip of a

Mission to Israel.
They'll be flying from Miami
on a trip arranged by the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale in conjunction with
the national office of the United
Jewish Appeal and Israel
government officials.

One reason why
more Jewish families
select Riverside.
More Jewish personnel.
At Riverside, we have the largest staff of
Jewish personnel in Florida. It's been that way since 1935,
and it's one of the major reasons why more Jewish families
select Riverside than any other funeral director.
At Riverside, families find total dedication to
Jewish tradition. A genuine feeling of understanding.
Economical assistance in arranging funeral services
between Florida and New York or anywhere else in the
world. And real concern for each family's needs and
wishes, regardless of financial circumstance.
Today, if Riverside service is becoming the
standard by which people are comparing all the others,
there is a reason. Riverside people. They know Jewish
tradition. And they honor it.

of the Jews pleaded guilty, and
received prison terms ranging
from 10 to 15 years. The other
four Jews were sentenced to
death. The sentences were im-
posed by the trial judge, even
though the prosecutor merely
demanded prison terms.
Abassov and Adzhiashvili
were taken out of Donetsk prison
and were transferred to a new
location in the Denipropetrovsk
region. They were given, on May
27, a written notification that the
Supreme Soviet had confirmed
their death sentence. Their
relatives have not been allowed to
see them since. Abassov received
a written notice confirming the
death sentence. The Adshiashvili

Though a "Brit Milan"
(Covenant of Circumcision, or
simply referred to as "Brit" or
"Bris") must never be performed
before the eighth day, those
postponed for reasons of health
or denial of ritual Jewish law,

Europe Unfit Morally
It was Israel's do-nothingism that brought the
Palestine Liberation Organization into being. You
can not sit on land that you say is not yours while
acting as if it were and not have those who live on it
come to contest your squatter's right.
The downward trend against Israel since then
has been an emotional (and actual) disaster.
It was therefore heartening to hear the words of
Prime Minister Begin who Sunday finally told the
world "like it is." The world's new direction, led by
the pragmatic Europeans who these days hang on
every Arab demand, are unfit morally, said Begin,
to launch a Mideast peace initiative of their own.
The historic parallel between the Hitler period
pre-World War II and today is simply too
devastating not to come up with Begin's con-
clusions: The world is ready to lead Jews down the
road toward the extermination camps once more.
Jews are expendable now that oil is king.
Finally, Begin has declared that the Jews will
not go. Israel is not interested in Europe's
initiatives, will not feel bound by them; and Europe
should not take them in the first place. The mur-
derer cannot be the judge of his victim's destiny.
In 1967. Israel won the battle but starl
losing the war. Toda\ as the spirit of Munich se
the petro-pragmatists. it is high time that Israel
finally cuts through then righteous
them to mind their man:
it not their :
Hand of the USSR
Then seemed to be no real good reason on the
surface tor the recent effort by the Arabs to pn
for a Tunisian resolution in "the United Nations
Security Council calling for a Palestinian state and
demanding that Israel withdraw from all occupied
territory, 'including Jerusalem."
The only explanation can be that the Palestinians
and other hardline Arabs were pushed to take a
stand now by the Soviet Union.
This also adds credibility to Israels claim that a
Palestinian state would end up as a Soviet puppet
and a threat not only to Israel, but the West. The
PI/), while it claims to be the representative of the
Palestinians, actually subverts Palestinian interests
for the benefit of the Soviet Union.

NEW YORK (JTA) The Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith expressed dismay at the victory
of Ku Klux Klan leader Tom Metzgar in last week's

METZGAR RECEIVED about 35 percent of the
vote and easily defeated Edward Skagen, San Diego's
Democratic Party chairman, and "unknown" Hubert
Higgins, who stopped campaigning in the middle of the
race but remained on the ballot. Close to 87,000 people
voted in the primary.
Formerly the "grand dragon" and now "state
chairman" of California's KKK, Metegar will oppose
mcumbent Republican Clair Burgener, who is seeking his
fifth term. The district is overwhelmingly Republican
and Burgener is expected to triumph in November.

forth with an offer to permit

view of the fact that none of the

As a result of the Trujillo offer,

was very proud of his deed and
immediately assigned a special
area in his country where these
new immigrants would engage in
farming. At the same time, he
managed to procure shares in the

The tract of land was bought
for $50,000 in the then wilderness

JFS Helps Daughter Resolve

Lakes. And the agency responds
with every effort to help mother,
daughter and daughter s family.
In response to this type of call,
the JFS worker suggested to the
daughter that she and her mother
come in together and discuss how
each could change to make their
relationship better. At first the
daughter refused saying she
didn't want to upset her mother.
When it was pointed out that her
mother, too, was probably un-
happy with their relationship, the
daughter agreed to a joint ap-
Together with the caseworker,
the daughter and her mother
explored their feelings. The
mother, still somewhat depressed
over the loss of her husband, was
totally overwhelmed by having to
adjust to a new city. She also felt
friendless and dependent on her
daughter for companionshtp. The
daughter, seeing her mother's
unhappiness. felt she was not
doing enough to help her and was
unable to refuse her mother's
demands even though this was
creating a crisis in her own
After several sessions in which
feelings between mother and
daughter were expressed, the
tension between the two began to
ease. The daughter and her
mother could begin to enjoy each
other. The daughter felt she could
now refuse the unrealistic
demands of her mother without
destroying their relationship or
her mother.
At this point, the JFS elected
to work with the mother alone to
help her overcome her feelings of
grief and loneliness. During the
counseling sessions, the social
worker explored with the mother
realistically what alternative
choices she had in terms of
location of an apartment and
what the community resources
were that would help her adapt to
the new life she must now begin
to build.
At last report the daughter and
mother were "!x>th doing well."
The daughter reported that she
and her mother are now enjoying
their adult-to-adult relationship.
The mother reported that she is
now happily involved with her
new friends and activities and
"we see each other when we can.
pretty often because we enjoy
each other's company."
Basically, because there was a

The teachers took part in the
seminars and workshops con-
ducted by CAJE, planned by the
Council of Rabbis and
Educational Directors of the
religious schools of the com-
munity and coordinated by
Federation's Director of
Education, Abraham J. Git-

prior to the opening of the school
year. The theme was "Fall
Holidays." Individual sessions
included: Teaching the Holidays
through Crafts, Music and
Dramatics: Value Concepts of
the Festivals; Hebrew in the
Teaching of the Holidays;
Historical Aspects of High Holy
Days and Sukkot.
The second workshop, prior to
Manuka, had a double theme:

and "Jewish Identity in a Secular
Society." Resource leaders in-
cluded Rabbi Phillip Labowitz of
Temple Beth Israel. Rabbi
Jeffrey Ballon of Temple Emanu-

In January, teachers par-
ticipated in the Kohl Teacher

At the end of April, teachers
participated in a two-day
seminar, conducted by the

sultant. She emphasized an
inquiry approach to the study of
Bible for students in the
synagogue religious schools,
delving into the text to derive the
moral values contained therein.
In addition to the seminar on
Bible, a number of the Broward

in his good eye blinded him
totally in 1960 at age 54.
He continued his scientific
work but began working with
blind people. Moving from New
York to Lauderhill in the early
'60s. he increased his counseling
of the blind and their spouses.
But he's not just your average
counselor, says Center director
Sheila Johns, bathing him with a
flood of compliments.
"Doc gets all the hard cases
and works constantly around the
clock," she said. "He's always
there ready to help.
"These people mean his life to
him, and they know it. It's such a
delight to have him with us."
As a self-appointed lobbyist for
the blind and handicapped, "he's
not above calling God or anyone
to get a bill through," Johns said.
In a two-page letter
nominating Forman for the
award, longtime friend Thomas
McKee noted that references to
Forman as "Big Ben" obviously
have nothing to do with his 5-
foot-2,135-pound stature.
"His bigness is in his
humanitarian framework where
this title rightfully and justly
applies." McKee wrote.
"He doesn't seek recognition
and financial gain and his only
ambition is to encourage the
blind to be independent."

Martha and Isaac Corkland of Fort Lauderdale,
a very special honeymoon couple on El Al's
flight to Israel.
Two years ago they were reunited by coin-
cidence and resumed a courtship interrupted by
war World War I.
They were married recently in Temple Sholom,
Pompano Beach. Isaac Corkland, 84, and Martha
Munzer, 82, are off on a month-long honeymoon
in Israel. The couple met on a blind date in the
summer of 1918 and sav they fell in love over the
next 10 days. He was shipped to Europe and, in
spite of their best efforts to keep in touch, they
drifted apart after the war. Both married but
they never forgot each other. A coincidence
stranger than any novelist could dream up
brought them together again after 60 years, after
both had been widowed.
"Our life is only beginning," the couple says
and Martha Munzer's latest book, her eighth, is
titled, It Might As Well Be Spring.
"We're having a ball," she said.

New 'Sunrise' for Immigrants
It was joy unbounded with smiles from ear to ear as four
Russian Jews were greeted as they descended from a
National Airlines jet at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood
On hand to meet Leonid and Lyusya Oks, and their
daughters,' Inessa, 8, and Diana, 16, were Ellen Held,
caseworker of the Jewish Family Service of Broward, a
Federation beneficiary agency; Berte and Israel Resnikoff,
of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale's
Immigrant Resettlement Committee, and volunteer in-
terpreters Rya F.isman and Herman Sandov.
After claiming their baggage, which was packed with
them into two cars, they were whisked off to their new
home in Sunrise. Conversation with the aid of the
Russian interpreters and a little bit of Yiddish on both
sides plus a little less English revealed that the Oks family
is a talented one.
Poppa is a commercial artist, decorator, with several
years of correspondence school study through a Moscow
university, and Diana is a graduate of a music school. The
family applied for its exit visa last October, received it in
February, finally left their home in Zitormir, 136
.kilometers southwest of Moscow, in April, went to Rome
where they remained until the June flight to the U.S.
The program of resettlement is funded in part by the
U.S. government and is supported in part by the
Federation with JFS and the Federation's committee
assisting the family with tutoring in English, and aiding
the absorption toward self-support for the family.
Ellen Held greets the newest Russian Jewish arrivals as they
leave the jet that brought them to North Broward. Lyusya
Oks accepts Ellen's floral bouquet. Leonid and his daughters,
Inessa and Diana, enjoyed the meeting.

Funds Announced
Congressman Edward J. Stack
(D-Fort Lauderdale) announced
recently that the Urban Mass
Transportation Administration
(UMTA) has awarded $1,201,812
to Broward County's Division of
Mass Transit for the purchase of
10 lift-equipped buses.
Last summer, UMTA funded
35 of these advanced designed
buses for the county. "The buses
are of special design to assist the
elderly and handicapped in
getting on and off the vehicles,"
Congressman Stack said.
In addition to providing 10
new buses, the grant will also
cover the cost of five fare boxes
and 10 radios.
Stack stated, "Federal funds
for the improvement of Broward
County's mass transportation
have long been awaited. After
many months of working with
county and UMTA officials, I am
pleased to see that UMTA's
attention is increasingly being
focused on our needs, and I in-
tend to continue to pursue
further assistance for the
Peanuts Blast Off
The Jewish Community
Center's Peanut "T" Ball League
held its first games of the season
on Tuesday, May 27. In a hard
fought five inning struggle, these
5-6-and 7-year olds hit, caught
and played in their first game,
and in the end the Braves and
Yankees played to a 7-7 tie.
Every child had a feeling of
accomplishment. They were all
heroes; aren't all Peanuts? The
fine effort of head coaches, Larry
Levine, David Kingsley and
Louise Feller, was very evident.
The enthusiasm the coaches
radiate is evident in the play of
their teams. Spirit, fun and good
times playing baseball are the
heart of this "T" Ball League.
Games are played every Monday
and alternating Thursdays
starting at 4 p.m. Spectators are
always welcome. All games are
played on the Jewish Community
Center's major field. <

News in Brief
Herzog to Take Over at Helm of Gigantic ORT Union
zog, Israel's former Ambassador
to the United Nations, was
elected president of the World
ORT Union at its 100th anniver-
sary conference here. He will
succeed William Haber of Ann
Arbor, Mich., who has headed the
World ORT since 1955.
The conference endorsed a
long-range program which en-
visages more than 200,000
students in ORT's worldwide
vocational training programs by
the end of the century. At
present, more than 100,000
students attend some 700 ORT
schools and programs worldwide.
ORT Israel's operations account
for some two-thirds of the world
organization's overall vocational
TEL AVIV Gen. Yenoshua
Saguy, chief of military intel-
ligence, said here that Israel doer
not consider a new Middle East
war likely to break out this year,
largely because of the unstable
political conditions in the region
as a whole and in Israel's im-
mediate vicinity.
However, Saguy, who spoke to
military correspondents here,
said a coup or any other sudden
change in the countries neighbor-
ing Israel could trigger a war. He
disclosed that military intel-
ligence has had to drastically
revise its methods and training
as a result of Israel's stage-by-
stage withdrawal from Sinai.
While Israeli forces were de-
ployed there, stationary intel-
ligence-gathering equipment was
utilized, he said. Now, air-borne
devices and other types of elec-
tronic gear must be used.
PARIS Rabbi Rene Sirat,
50, was elected France's new
Chief Rabbi in replacement of 85-
year-old Rabbi Jacob Kaplan who
is retiring.
The election of Rabbi Sirat
marked a turn in the history of
the Jewish community since he is
of North African origin. Sephardi
Jews now make up 50 percent of
the 750,000 strong Jewish com-
munity in France.
Rabbi Sirat, born in the
Algerian city of Bone (now
Annabel, will take up his post at
the end of this year when Rabbi
Kaplan, who was elected in 1955,
Command Gen. Avigdor Ben-Gal
issued Sunday four restriction
orders against four leading
Israeli Arabs in connection with
an anti-government protest rally
held in Nazareth last week.
The orders were given accord-
ing to mandatory emergency
regulations that are seldom in use
within Israel. They were seen
here as a warning to Israeli Arabs
not to adopt the radical anti-
Israel trend which characterized
the West Bank in recent months.
The Nazareth rally, in which
mayors and council members ol
most Arab towns and villages
were assembled, was called in
solidarity with West Bank
Mayors Bassam Shaka and
Karim Khalaf who were wounded
in a terrorist attack early last
week. The rally served as a
podium for the Communist
mayor of Nazareth, Tawfik Zay-
yad, who sharply criticized the
occupation of the West Bank,
and justified military action in
order to "liberate the territories."
BRUSSELS Israeli Foreign
Minister Itzhak Shamir has
called on European countries to
adopt a fairer attitude over the
Middle East conflict.
Shamir, who met Belgian
Foreign Minister Charles Fer-
dinand Nothomb on the final leg
of a European tour which led him
Ambassador Herzog
to The Hague and Copenhagen,
said the partners of the European
Common Market should en-
courage the peace talks already
engaged between Cairo and
Jerusalem back the "moderate
elements of the region and dis-
courage the extremists."
Shamir, whose tour has been
aimed at countering EEC
reported plans for a new Middle
East initiative which might be
announced during a summit on
June 12 and 13 in Venice, said
Israel refused to deal with the
Moshe Haim Weiler, chairman of
the Council of Rabbis for Pro-
gressive Judaism (Reform) in
Israel, has strongly attacked the
Washington, D.C. Reform
Temple Sinai for hosting
deported Mayors Fahd
Kawassme and Mohamed
Milhem last week.
"I utterly object to offering
hospitality in a Jewish house of
worship for these two enemies of
Israel." Rabbi Weiler said. This
was to "give legitimization to
what Kawassme and Milhem rep-
resent," he added.
Weiler came to live in Israel
more than 20 years ago. He lost
two sons, both officers, in the
army in action against the
"I am a Jew of humanistic
persuasion," Rabbi Weiler said.
"If the two (deportees) would at
least have expressed sorrow over
the murder of a child at Misgav
Am or of the six Jews at Hebron,
they would have had the right to
make their own case. But to open
the doors of a synagogue to them
when they come only to accuse
Israel and Jews this I cannot
agree with."
TEL AVIV Israeli troops
pursued a group of terrorists
across the Jordan River and
killed two of them in a clash on
Jordanian territory. A third
terrorist is believed to have been
killed when explosives he was
carrying detonated. There were
no Israeli casualties.
The incident was the first in
several months involving
terrorist infiltrators from Jordan.
Israeli authorities are uncertain
whether the Jordanian govern-
ment was aware of the terrorists
presence but believe it may havt
been because of the receni
rapprochement between Kinj
Hussein and Palestine Liberatior
Organization chief Yasir Arafat.
has angrily rejected the United
Nations Security Council's reso-
lution adopted last Thursday
condemning "the assassination
attempts" against West Bank
mayors and accusing Israel of
failure "to provide adequate pro-
tection to the civilian population
in the occupied territories."
A Cabinet statement, read to
reporters and television camera-
men by Prime Minister
Menachem Begin after the
session, accused the Security
Council of using the bomb at-
tacks against the mayors of
Nablus, Ramallah and El rJireh
on June 2 as a pretext to renew
its demands for Israel's total
withdrawal from the West Bank
and the redivision of Jerusalem.
Charging that the latest anti-
Israel resolution was in contra
vention of Security Council Reso
lution 242. Begin declared, "This
will never do."
BONN Members of the
ruling Social Democratic Party's
(SPD) parliamentary faction
have published a statement
favoring the continuation of the
peace process in the Middle East
based on the Camp David ac-
cords. The statement, addressed
to the U.S. Congress and signed
by prominent members of the
SPD, is opposed to any change in
Security Council Resolution 242.
Baers Observe 50th Anniversary
Uf. tad Mrs. Melvin H. beer of HalUodai*
celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on
June 10. Melvin and his wife, Ludle. were
married in South Bend, Ind., in 1930.
They have three sons who, with their wives,
planned, an anniversary celebration to honor
their parents. They are James B. Baer of Park-
land. Allan E. Baer of Fort Lauderdale, and
Robert M. Baer of Hollywood.
Mr. and Mrs. Baer founded Baer's Home Out-
fitters in South Bend and added three more stores
in neighboring communities. They were involved
with many civic and charitable organizations in
their home town. The couple moved to Florida 10
years ago.
At present, Mr. Baer is chairman of the board
and treasurer of Baer's Furniture, and Mrs. Baer
is corporate secretary. She is also president of
Grosse Pointe Furniture.
Melvin Baer is on the board of directors of
Temple Beth El, Jewish Family and Children's
Service of Broward County, and the Miami.
Jewish Home and Hospital for the Aged. He is a
past board member of the Jewish Federation of
South Broward, where he served for many years.
He is vice president of the Hollywood-Hallandale
chapter of American Friends of Hebrew
He also serves on the board of Boy Scouts of
Dade, Broward and Monroe Counties and is a
member of Rotary Club of Dania and Key Club of
Nova University. He was recently inaugurated
into the 50-Year Emeritus Club of the University
of Michigan.
Lucile Baer is a past president of the
Hollywood Auxiliary of the Miami Jewish Home
and Hospital for the Aged and is a member of
Mr. and Mrs. Melvin Baer
Gold Circle of Nova University.
The Baers have eight grandchildren who
helped celebrate their anniversary; Richard and
Nancy, who are expecting the Baers' first great-
grandchild; Ronald, who recently was engaged
to Mama Bullard of South Bend; Jerome,
-Catherine, Michael, Ira, and Laurence.
Q: Why should the Zeppelin
really be called a "Schwartz*?
A: Because "The Zeppelin" was
Invented by David Schwartz.
David Schwartz was ar. Austrian-born
engineer who, in 1890, came up with the
idea of an airship with a gas-filled metal
container to make it rise. Because of finan-
cial reasons, the Austrian minister of war
turned down the idea. However, in 1892,
after Schwartz built a prototype in Russia,
the German government urged him to
go ahead with production for them
Unfortunately. Schwartz died before the
project could get off the ground. Shortly
thereafter. Count von Zeppelin bought the
patents from Schwartz's widow.
A big part of Jewish warmth and affec-
tion is to quickly become completely
open and informal with people and
things they particularly like. Samuel is
called "Sammy!" a snack is a "nosh"
and the famed Chicken Soup has
become known as "Jewish Penicillin'.'
And right in keeping with this inherent
warmth, J&B Rare Scotch has come to
be regarded as a favorite part of the
mishpocha'. Because along with its
elegance at formal affairsJ&B is
also the kind of 'relative' one can
take his shoes off with, loosen the tie
and relax wjth friends at home.

serious progress was reported in
the investigation of the bomb
attacks against Arab mayors on
the West Bank. The police
laboratory reported that the
explosives used were standard
army issue. But police sources
insisted that this was not
positive proof that the outrage
was perpetrated by Jews because
a great deal of army equipment
has fallen into the hands of Arab
terrorists in the past.
Nevertheless, security agencies
are known to be focusing on at
least three groups of Jewish
extremists as likely suspects.
One is the ultra-nationalist Koch
movement headed by Rabbi Meir
Kahane, who has long advocated
the expulsion of Arabs from
Israel and the occupied territories
and the use of force against them.
Emunim, the militant Orthodox
settlers movement which lately
has been accusing the govern
ment of not taking a sufficiently
hard line against Palestinian
nationalists and not providing
adequate protection for the
settlers on the West Bank.
The third group under in-
vestigation is a hitherto unknown
cell of Jewish extremists which
the police have not identified by
name. Earlier this week, Israeli
newspapers received calls from
anonymous persons who claimed,
in one case that a group called
"Bnei Zion" was responsible for
the bombings and in another that
it was a group called "Counter
Terror Unit." Neither name was
known to the authorities.
ISRAEL PRESS Association
news agency received a call from
a person who said he represented
a group called "Terror Against
Terror" which, he claimed, had
250 members and had supplied a
"counter-terrorist unit" with the
explosives for the bombs.
The caller, who spoke Sabra
(native Israeli)'Hebrew and said
he was calling from Netanya,
warned that the group planned
more acts against Arabs in
Jerusalem that they would
"remember for a long time." As
was the case with the earlier
anonymous callers, the person
from Netanya insisted that his
group was in no way connected
with the Gush Emunim.
Meanwhile, a dispute emerged
between the army and the police
with each claiming that the other
was responsible for investigating
the West Bank bombings. Chief
of Staff Gen. Raphael Eitan told
the Knesset's Foreign Affairs
and Security Committee that it
was entirety a police matter. A
senior do I ice source said.

was the task of the Military

reopened in East Jerusalem and
on the West Bank despite a three-
day general strike declared by
West Bank leaders to protest the
bombings. But Arab merchants
said they were forced by the
Israeli military and police to open
for business on penalty of arrest.
Jerusalem police herded about
120 Arab merchants into local
police stations and served them
with written orders to open their
shops or face penalties of up to
three months in jail. Police ac-
companied the shopkeepers to
their stores to make sure they

.ariety of proposals for more

roportion of elderly Americans
including a multi-media cam-
ign to change the image of

Kates emerged from the first
[mini-White House" conference
In the Aging in New York.
The conference here, sponsored
, the Federation of Jewish
philanthropies in conjunction
vith 15 other Jewish service
kgencies, was held to identify
priorities in serving the Jewish
tged which the Jewish com-
hiunity wants to see addressed at
[he 1981 White House Conference
an Aging, an event held every ten
years at which the agenda for
America's aged is set, according
to Federation officials.
SOME 350 attended the
[(inference, which was held at the
lew headquarters of the Jewish
Association for Services for the
Aged in Manhattan. Senior
bitizens and professionals in the
field of geriatrics were among
those attending.
The keynote speaker, Prof.
tohert Morris at the Florence G.
Illeller social work school at
lllrandeis University, declared
[that "the battle for the elderly
IAmericans over the next decade
lis two-fold: to fight like hell to
[ensure that there are no major
[cutbacks in government
programs and financing; and to
Snake a major effort to create non-
^nvernmental programs of
Imutual aid and voluntary effort."
I'rot Morris also declared that
in the next decade there must be
i major push to switch emphasis
from medical care lor the aged to
Itome can. It will be necessary to
reallocate dollars to back up
home care services to relieve
pressures on hospitals and
[nursing homes."
He also praised the efforts of

programs and geriatric day care.
MRS. Alan V. Tishman.
Federation vice president, ex-
pressed pride that the event was
the first such Mini-White House
Conference. She said there have
been "many changes in per-
ceptions" about old people since
the last White House Conference
in 1971 and that a conference like
the one at J ASA "can serve as a
consciousness raising forum for
older people."
Marie Kalish, representing
senior adults of the New York
Jewish community, said "there is

Among recommendations
decided on in conference work-
shops were proposals that
government resources be chan-
neled into programs with com-
munity support for the frail
elderly; that income tax laws be
changed to allow deductions by
elderly persons for classes and
training for new occupations;
that there be reduced fares for the
elderly on public transportation
24 hours a day; and that a
national family aid program be
created to give families financial
support for home care and respite
services for elderly parents.
MANY participants felt that
the best thing about the con-
ference was that it gave older
people a chance to come together
and share common concerns.
Laica Gellman, an elderly woman
who directs the senior citizen
center at the Shorefront YM-
YWHA in Brooklyn, said that "a
conference like this reminds us
both of the strides we have made
and the problems that remain to
be overcome."
The conference was funded
with special grants from the

for services to the aged, and the

German-U.S. Pension Accord feraeJLConsulL
May Affect s. Florida Jews Arabs Are Unwilling to Accept V*
Rabbi Albert B. Schwartz,
director of the Chaplaincy Com-
mission of the Jewish Federation
of Greater Fort Lauderdale was
among those in attendance when
the Greater Miami Jewish
Federation hosted a seminar last
month in cooperation with the
Social Security Administration,
the Embassy of the Federal
Republic of Germany, and rep-
resentatives of the German social
security system to educate the
Jewish community about a new
bilateral agreement concerning
pensions which could affect many
Holocaust survivors here along
with former German Jews who
fled Europe before the outbreak
of World War II.
The agreement, which went
into effect on Dec. 1, 1979, and
expires on Dec. 1, 1980, allows
people with social security credits
from both countries to combine
those credits to determine
eligibility for benefits from either
the United States or the Federal
Republic of Germany.
This aspect of the agreement is
particularly important for people
who did not work long enough in
the United States following their
immigration to qualify for Social
Security benefits.
Other provisions, designed
specifically for U.S. citizens who
were victims of Nazi persecution,
permit such people to contribute
voluntarily to the German social
security system to cover periods
in the past when they were
unable to contribute due to un-
employment, emigration and
personal catastrophe resulting
from the war.
In other cases, an individual
who does not have enough credits
in both countries due to an inter-
ruption caused by persecution
and or emigration, can pay
retroactively into the German
system to achieve eligibility.
In addition, individuals who
qualify as German ethnics as a
result of having attended Ger-
man language schools, or who
spoke German as their primary
language, but were among the
many hundreds of thousands who
lived in Eastern and Central
Europe before the Second World
War, may include their work
history in their pension cal-
culations following docu-
mentation from their country of
The representative from the
Federal Republic of Germany,
Lothar Frank, pointed out that
many Jews who lived in Hun-
gary, Czechoslovakia, or other
central and Eastern European
countries before World War II,
spoke German as their primary
These people would qualify as
German ethnics under the agree-
ment, and could become eligible
for German pension benefits.
He pointed out, however, that
obtaining pre-war records from
Eastern Europe can take up to 18
In the case of destroyed
records, whether in Eastern
Europe or in Germany, Frank
said that the ability to establish
probability of employment
through affidavit or through
previous restitution records
would allow the individual to
claim those periods.
. In any case, Frank said, com-
bining work credits in two or
more countries under the process
of "totalization," in order to
obtain a pension from the Federal
Republic of Germany, would only
allow an individual to receive
such a pension based on actual
time he had worked in Germany,
unless he chose to make retro-
active payments into the system.
The agreement, which allows
credits from two national
systems to be combined, is one of
a series the United States
Government has arranged with
Italy, the United Kingdom,
Canada, Sweden, Norway, Israel
and Japan, among others.

"The major stumbling block to
peace in the Mideast is the very
fact that, except for Egypt, not
one Arab country is willing to
accept our existence," said Oded
Ben-Hur, vice consul at the
Israeli Consulate in Atlanta
during a speaking tour in North
He expressed happiness with
the peace talks with Egypt, but
said talks between Israel and
Jordan would expedite matters
with the Palestinians.
"Not too many people in the
world know that, actually, there
is already a Palestinian state
today; it's called Jordan," Ben-
Hur said.
The fact that Egypt is the only
country in the Arab world willing
to talk to Israel makes ii difficult
to solve problems, he said.
He called Jordan a Palestinian
stronghold because its
population is about 70 percent
"We are not ignoring the
problem and, ironically enough,
of all countries of the world,
Israel was the first to introduce
the autonomy thing," Ben-Hur
said. "(It's) something to start
working with."
Ben-Hur cites Jordan's 19-year
rule of the West Bank, with no
"Palestinian homeland," as
evidence of the Arab world's
unwillingness in the past to deal
with the Palestinians.
"We would like very much to
solve the Palestinian problem
because it is a genuine human
problem," he said.
Ben-Hur reiterated Israel's
unflinching opinion that
Jerusalem is not a divided city,
because, as he said, "Jerusalem
will forever be the capital of
Israel, as it always has been.
"It never was (an) Arab capital
city," he said.

He also emphasized a major

and Austria, only three remain. A
number of them died and others
migrated to a number of cities in
the United States. A similar fate
befell the members of the other
groups who settled in Sosua in
the course of 1940. Of these
groups there are at present only
36 Jewish families.
It is, of course, no simple
