came a festive occasion for
parents of the boys, all of
had been brought to the
States through the
services of Federation beneficiary
agencies: Joint Distribution
Committee (JDC) and Hebrew
Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS).
They were settled over the past
20 months in Broward County
through the efforts of the
Resettlement Committees of the
Jewish Federations of Greater
Fort Lauderdale and South
Broward and the Jewish Family
Service of Broward County.
Four urologists who preferred
to remain unidentified,
anesthesiologists, nurses,
recovery room staff, and the
resources of the Florida Medical
Center including overnight stay
were made available without
charge by Dr. Maxwell Dauer,
president of the hospital.
Presiding at the circumcision
with the urologists was the mohel
(circumciser, religiously trained
to offer the Hebrew prayers and
pronounce the Hebrew name of
the boy and surgically-trained
and certified to perform the
delicate operation).
The mohel, Rabbi Abraham
Vaknin of North Miami Beach,
was assisted by Rabbi Albert B.
Schwartz, director of the
Chaplaincy Commission of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale, and Rabbi
Harold Richter of the Jewish
Rosenstein (center right), executive director
of Jewish Family Service of Broward
County, thanks Florida Medical Center for
its donation of facilities for the mass "bris"

of Administrator Dr. Maxwell Dauer, the
commendation went to Theodore Rosenberg,
associate administrator at the hospital
Flanking them are Ellen Held ofJFS, Leon
Messing and Rabbi Albert Schwartz of Fort

Rabbi Vaknin, and Rabbi Richter of
Federation of South Broward.
After each circumcision, the
rabbis, accompanied by a
urologist, would return to the
Medical Library to complete the
religious ceremony by having
some kosher wine, and then
assuring the mother of the boy
that all went well.
Valentine Lapidus, whose 16-
year-old son Leonid, and three-
year-old Slavic, were circumcised,
and Paolina Mavshit, mother of
three-year-old Ilya, were among
the mothers who remained
overnight with their sons during
the painful recovery process. The
fathers, for the most part missed
some of the ceremony, because
they were at work.

Rabbi Avraham Vaknin, a
seventh generation Sabra, born
35 years ago in Jerusalem, who
has performed more than 5,000
circumcisions in his 17 years of
official practice, tells how.
The Rabbi, who was the mohel
in the operating room at Florida
Medical Center Hospital
assisting four urologists at the
mass bris" of seven Russian
Jewish boys, said he had been
interested in the mohel's per-
formance ever since he was five
years old. He was encouraged
during his formative years to be
associated with a mohel during
his years of schooling in
Jerusalem, including attendance
at Yeshivah Porett Joseph and
4 Haverin Yeshivah. He served an

By the time he was 18 he
underwent critical examinations
by a panel of three doctors at the
Hospital, another panel from the
Israel Ministry of Health, and a
third from a panel assigned by
the Ministry of Religion. In each
instance, he received a certificate
of competence, including one
testifying to his knowledge of
halacha (Torah law in Hebrew),
an important part of Brit Milah
(Covenant of Circumcision) when
prayers in Hebrew are offered
during the religious rite.
His knowledge of the law and
Hebrew resulted in his ordination
as a rabbi at age 20 and resulted
in an assignment from the Israel
government to go to Europe,
ostensibly to help Jews in
Communist countries migrate to
Israel, but secretly to perform
contrary to the godless ways of
Communists the most sacred
and first religious rite for a
Jewish male eight days after
birth. Hundreds of circumcisions
were performed during his 11
months traveling through the
Soviet Union, Poland. Bulgaria
and other countries, and
thousands were encouraged to
migrate to Israel.
Rabbi Vaknin left Israel to
spend five years in Canada where
he was additionally certified by
the Montreal General Hospital,
Jewish General Hospital, the
Royal Victorian Hospital and
others, becoming the official
hospital mohel. Two years ago he
came to North Miami Beach. And
that's how a religiously-trained
and surgically-qualified person
can become a certified mohel. It
can't be done, says the bearded
young man, by correspondence
He and his wife, Judy, who
teaches Hebrew at Torah
Academy in North Miami Beach,
and their children, Addie, 9, for
whom Rabbi Vaknin was the
mohel. and Etti, 6, live at 16901
NE 5th Ave., North Miami
Beach. During the time he has
been there, he has made periodic
visits to Broward county, various
cities in all parts of Florida, and
Japan, Korea, and Hong Kong.

In less than a week's time,
Ben net Yanowitz, chairman of

President Carter.
The first letter, dated June 13,
wished the President "all good

deliberations" with the Jor-
danian king. But "luck" wasn't
with Carter. At the end of the
meetings in the White House,
Hussein reaffirmed the position
he had taken in private meetings
with Israeli

Meantime the U.S. has agreed,

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Herschd Blumberg described in depth the financial
requirements facing the North American Jewish com-
munity in the 1981 United Jewish Appeal (UJA) at an
all-day session of the Council of Jewish Federations
(CJF) and UJA Task force last month in New York City.
Blumberg, 1981 UJA General Chairman, said a
minimum of $635 million is needed from the Jewish com-
munities from UJA campaigns, citing the essential in-
crements for overseas needs and an inflation factor for
providing aid.
Morton L. Mandel, CJF president, explained that
the hallmarks of the session were found in three concepts
newr to the 1981 campaign: community fund raising
capacity, collective responsibility of the communities to
meet the obligations of the North American Jewish com-
munity and a community's responsibility to determine its
own local campaign goal as a share of the national
Jerry Goodman, executive director of the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry, emphasized the need for the
Jewish community to respond more vigorously to the

liberate 250,000 Soviet Jews, with an emigration peak of Danielpour, an Iranian Jew. He had been arrested in
52,000 in 1979, he said, "We are faced with a decline of January by the Revolutionary Council as a "Jew-Zionist"
over 50 percent. During May, 1,976 Jews emigrated
compared with 4,130 in May 1979, and the figure for June
is even more worrisome."
CJF has been granted 18 million dollars thus far in
Federal 1980 fiscal year funds for Soviet-Jewish resettle-
ment, and a supplementary S5 million-dollar grant is
expected shortly. One hundred twenty-seven com-
munities, including the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale in cooperation with the Jewish Family
Service of Broward County, are now participating in the
grant program.
Prof. Amos Perl mutter of American University, an
adviser to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee of
which Florida's Sen. Dick Stone is a member, reported a
perceived weakening of support for Israel in Congress, a
growing estrangement from the White House, and a
negative attitude towards Israel on the part of media.
During the session, the CJF-UJA International
and American spy. Profound concern was felt over the
fate of other Jews currently imprisoned, as well as for the
future of Jews still remaining in Iran. They are being
urged to leave while they can.
A briefing session was held for the 102 delegates
from communities and 80 observers from North American
Federations who are attending this week's Jewish
Agency in Israel Assembly in Jerusalem. The Assembly
is focusing on the Agency's budget, which is funded
mostly by UJA contributions to the United Israel
Appeal, and increased aid for rural settlements and other
projects in Israel.
"The Jewish Family" will be highlighted during a
series of forums and workshops at the 1980 CJF General
Assembly Nov. 12-16 in Detroit. These will give guidance
to Federations on the needs and programs that can in-
tegrate efforts to buttress the Jewish family.

Smooth-and-Smack Diplomacy
President Sadat has the knack of smoothing
and then slapping the face of Israel at the same
tune. He has made a successful diplomatic game of
A case in point is his appearance on Israeli
television in which he laid down his own pre-
conditions for the resumption of the autonomy talks
(he always accuses Israel of such unilateral pre-
conditions). To some, they seemed innocuous
But then Sadat announced that he would love
to invite Prime Minister Begin to Cairo to address
Egypt's Parliament but for the fact that Begin,
whom Sadat characterized as "popular" with his
people now might use that platform from which
to launch into his "usual" position on Gaza, the
West Bank and Jerusalem.
This, of course, would make the Prime Minister
Sadat's meddlesome comments are without a
doubt aimed at making Begins position as Prime
Minister even more unstable than it is today. His
smooth-and-smack diplomacy is so palpably clear,
that it is not difficult to see why the autonomy talks
are stalled. Sadat and the world's press call Begin
intransigent" because he is fighting for the life of
his people.
Perhaps history finally will come to show that
the Middle East's sins do not lie on Israel's
shoulders alone.
The King Cometh
King Hussein came to Washington, and he
conquered King Carter. The President, with little
difficulty. promised the doughty monarch a mess of
war materiel. When in doubt, sell guns.
IfJHussein will be getting U.S. tanks, he offered
no tanks in return in the form. say. of an assist
in the peace-making process. There is evidence
aplenty that Hussein is as opposed to the Palestine
Liberation Organization as are Israel and Egypt.
And yet Egypt manages to give the impression
that Egypt is not opposed. Ditto King Hussein,
who fought a war against them in 1970. In 1980,
wrapping up his arms deal with Carter, he an-
nounced that he had no intentions of joining the
Egypt-Israel talks. Such was his gratitude.
Keeping Promises
The United States should reject Saudi Arabia's
request for bomb racks and fuel extension equip-
ment for the 60 F-15s the United States sold the
Saudis in 1978. For the Carter Administrate i not
to do so would be to go back on the promise i made
to Congress and the American people when it sold
the planes.
As Sen. Frank Church (D.. Idaho), chairman of
the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and others
pointed out, when the Administration first proposed
the sale of the F-15s to the Saudis, it committed
itself not to sell any additional equipment which
would change the interceptor role of the aircraft.
There can be little doubt that if the new request
is granted, Saudi Arabia would have the ability to
attack Israeli targets. It would also find it difficult
to keep out of any new Arab war again Israel.
The Administration pushed the sale of the
planes as a means of encouraging Arab
"moderates." But Saudi Arabia has been part of the
rejectionist front that opposes the Camp David
As we said in the case of Jordan, when in
doubt, sell guns.

Twins'Decision Splits American Jews
(JTA) Jewish communal
organizations are not of
one mind as to whether
Lynn and Susan Stein,
twins of nearby Fairfax,
Va., who shunned their
high school graduation
exercises because they
were held on the Sabbath,
should take the issue to the
U.S. Supreme Court.
The American Jewish
Congress has joined with the two
Orthodox girls in their decision
to have the nation's highest
ribunal consider their appeal
that in the future institutions
like Virginia's Wood son High
School and the Fairfax County
School Board should not hold
such events on Sabbath days.
HOWEVER, the Anti-Defa-
mation League of B'nai B'rith.
the Jewish Community Council
of Greater Washington and the
National Jewish Commission on
Law and Public Affairs (COL-
PA) see the circumstances from
a different perspective.
When Woodson High con-
ducted its exercises on Saturday
morning, Lynn and Susan were
attending services at the Con-
servative congregation Olan Tik-
vah, Fairfax's only synagogue,
which is within walking distance
of the Stein home.
Numerous friends were
prepared to boycott the
graduation in sympathy, but the
sisters discouraged them. This
is an event that comes once in a

OF THE 512 students m the
class. 12 are Jewish. Besides the
Stein sisters, one other Jew
declined to attend the exercises.
George Hamil, spokesman for
the Fairfax County School
Board, informed the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that the
class had six valedictorians, and
Susan was one of them but not
Lynn. Hamil said that Lynn had
a 4.0 average until she received a
"B" in calculus for the last
semester that 'pulled her
Noting that the twins had
been trying since last December
to get the exercises held on a day
other than the Sabbath, their
lawyer, Washington attorney
Michael Hausfeld. told the JTA
that Lynn "devoted so much
time to the effort that it had to
take its toll somewhere."
Hausfeld said that unless the
school authorities change their
policy so that exercises will not
take place on the Sabbath day
for Christians or Jews, the girls
are prepared to take the issue to
the Supreme Court. They have
until the end of August to take
that action.
Court on May 29, eight days
before graduation, agreed with
the Fairfax Circuit Court against
overruling the County Board
which by a 5-3 vote refused to
change the date. Woodsons
principal and two area school
superintendents had previously
rejected the twins' appeal.
The attention resulting from
the issue brought about what The
Washington Post described
editorially as "traces of anti-
Semitism." School authorities
said that if threats were
evidenced they should have beerl
brought to their attention' Mrs.
Evelyn Stein, mother of the
twins, told the JTA, "I have
seven children, and I don't want
them hurt."
The twins are the oldest in the
family of Dr. Jerome Stein, a
physician who practices in
northern Virginia, and Mrs.
Stein. JTA was informed by
sources close to the case that
they know of anti-Semitic
remarks by Woodson students
and threats that jeering at tht
graduation against Jewii__
students would ensue if the grad-
uation were postponed.
WHEN THE case was before
the Virginia Supreme Court, the
ADL. the Washington Council
and COLPA suggested through
their counsel, Washington at-
torney Nathan Lewin, that the
court rule in support of the girls'
complaint but not to defer the
graduation since it was so close
to its scheduled date. Lewin, who
has often appeared in court on
behalf of Orthodox Jewish
causes, told the JTA that "we
hoped for a victory on principle."
The three organizations filed
their brief with the court on May
27. A hearing was held the next
day and the court's denial came
the following day.
In opposing further court pro-
ceedings, Lewin told the JTA
that the issue is not like com-
pulsory participation in employ-
ment or professional testing that
involve the Sabbath. "Atten-
dance at graduation is not an
absolute requirement," Lewin
noted. "There is no question the .
girls will get their diplomas. f
As for the twins' view of the
legal pro*ess, Lynn said "It'

will never be finished until the
date gets changed."

Begin's Aide Scores U.S. Media on Israel News
WASHINGTON (JTA) Sections of the
American news media were sharply taken to task by Dan
Pattir, Prime Minister Menachem Begins information
counselor, for their treatment of Israel in general and
their presumption that Jewish terrorists were responsible
for the June 2 bomb attacks against West Bank mayors
although an exhaustive investigation into the outrage has
yet to yield evidence as to the identity of the perpetrators.
Pattir spoke at the 38th annual meeting of the
American Jewish Press Association (AJPA) at which
Trank Wundohl, editor of the Jewish Exponent of Phila-
delphia, was re-elected to a third term as president. The
AJPA is an association of some 75 English language
Jewish weeklies, bi-weekly and monthly periodicals,
including The Jewish Floridian.
Pattir said that the investigation into the bombings
is the "most thorough and widest investigation" in
Israel's history but "no real clues" and "no concrete
leads" have emerged. So far there are only "suspicions"
as to the identities of the perpetrators of the "criminal,
eutrageous attempt" on the lives of Arab mayors, he
said. But, he noted, there are still "no clues to the
identities of the assassins" who ambushed and killed six
yeshiva students in Hebron on May 2.
Despite the absence of evidence in the bomb attacks,
Pattir charged that Newsweek magazine has already
"passed judgment," blaming "Israeli terrorists."
Although Begin has condemned the bombings as
"crimes of the gravest kind," Pattir said. Time magazine
quotes an anonymous State Department official who
"courageously" hid behind anonymity to say that "Begin
has taken actions that are clear incitements to violence."
The Israeli official also criticized a cartoon published
in the Washington Star, a daily owned by Time, Inc.,
which depicted Begin as "a terrorist" with features
reminiscent of the way Nazi newspapers pictured Jews.
He called the cartoon "sheer anti-Semitism."
The cartoon was denounced as "obscene" by Israel's
Ambassador to the U.S. Ephraim Evron who addressed
the AJPA meeting. He said it could have "come out of
the pages of Der Stuermer." Evron also blasted parts of
the American media for their treatment of Israel. They
have "no moral conception of what is going on" and
"slanting and imbalance are setting no standards in
coverage," he said. Also denounced was a cartoon of
Begin with "West Bank" on his eyes in The Miami
At another session, Herschel Blumberg, president of
the United Jewish Appeal told the assembled editors and
publishers that they constitute "the forum for funda-
mental Jewish values" and that "the Jewish newspapers
remind us of our Jewishness," like those in the past
"kept us out of the narrowness of ghetto life."
He referred to UJA leaders in 800 communities
across America as the "guardians of our people and their
destiny." He urged Jewish newspapers to support the
new UJA campaign to raise $635 million in 1981 as its
"minimum regular goal."
Blumberg warned that "The human cost of short-
fall" in the campaign includes no new facilities for im-
migrants absorption in Israel, with 40,000 more expected;
reduction by two-thirds of settlements in the Negev and
enrollment cancellation for 2,000 disadvantaged
youngsters from Project Renewal neighborhoods.
Blumberg noted that lack of funds may limit Galilee
settlements. "Onlv one settlement this vear and Drobablv

Retiring President "Hy" Solof
of Sunrise Jewish Center was
honored at a testimonial dinner
by the congregation with praise
for his year of accomplishments,
including help in raising $100,000
to pay off the balance due on land
purchased for the planned new
synagogue. Speakers included
past president Jack Polinsky, the
1980 president, Irving Steinhaus,
Rabbi Albert Troy, Men's Club
president Murray Weishrod and
Sisterhood president Betty
Buddy Wankoff was master of
not that." he said. This prompted a question later to
Pattir as to how he squared Begin s proposal to build ten
more settlements on the West Bank when funds may be
lacking for a single new settlement in Galilee. Pattir
replied that Begin did not "say tomorrow ten more
settlements will be built for strategic importance." He
said "the overall settlement plan (for the West Bank) will
be completed, but when was not mentioned by Begin."
He said the financial arrangements will be determined
when decisions are made on the timing and location of the
settlements. Meanwhile, "Priority is being given to
Galilee over the West Bank." he claimed.
Morris Amitay. executive director of the American-
Israel Public Affairs Cornmittee (AIPAC). spoke of
continued U.S. dependence on Arab oil and said "We've
tightened the noose around our necks. Therefore, we have
to be saying we have to be nice to the Arabs to have
access to Arab oil." He predicted a "crunch" in U.S.-
Israeli relations this year with President Carter applying
more pressure on Israel "insofar as autonomy is con-
cerned" for the West Bank and Gaza Strip. He said the
issue in the autonomy talks is who will control the West
Bank and on that, the U.S. is "closer to Egypt and the
Arab states than to Israel."
Carter invited the AJPA delegates to a special press
conference with him at the White House June 13. He was
the sixth President to do so. The practice begap in the
Truman Administration when Philip Slomovitz, editor
and publisher of the Jewish News of Detroit, and vice
president of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, led an
AJPA delegation to the White House. Slomovitz was the
founding president of the AJPA. Carter re-affirmed his
support of Israel and Jerusalem, and opposition to the
The Association "condemned the Soviet invasion of
Afghanistan and the continued persecution of Soviet
Jews and other activists," and "continues to press for

pressed minority groups." The AJPA also urged its
members to "communicate with each Jewish Federation

U.N. Decade for Women
The World Conference of the
UN Decade for Women will be
held in Copenhagen, Denmark,
_from July 14-30. The UN began
ts Decade for Women five years
ago, during the summer of 1975,
with a conference in Mexico. At
that conference, for the first time,
Zionism was linked with racism
and apartheid. Since then, UN
bodies, agencies, and conferences
frequently have become blatantly
politicized, and have been
diverted from their proper
purpose into a campaign aimed at
the isolation and detegitimization
of Israel.
It is anticipated that this
second World Conference of the
UN Decade for Women will be, if
anything, more highly politicized
and biased against Israel than
was the first World Conference in
Mexico City in 1975 which
spawned the infamous Zionism-
racism equation. Accordingly, in
the judgment of the Task Force
of NJCRAC, as well as the
Leadership Conference of
National Jewish Women's
Organizations (which has had
major programmatic respon-
sibility for this issue) and the UN
Task Force of the Presidents
"Conference, the Copenhagen
Conference should not be
Kgarded as simply a "women's"
issue and therefore requires the
attention of all groups in the
Jewish community.
Ostensibly, the purpose of the
Copenhagen Conference is to
review at the halfway point the
progress of the UN Decade for
Women as it seeks to address the
health, education and employ-
ment opportunities of women the
world over. Predictably, the Arab
bloc has sought to capture the
program by introducing to the
agenda consideration of the
"Effects of Israeli Occupation on
Palestinian Women inside and
outside the Occupied Ter-
ritories." This agenda item is
divided into two parts:
a) "a review of the social and
economic needs of the Palestinian
women," and
b) "special measures for
assistance to Palestinian women
inside and outside the occupied
The afternoon of July 24 and
the whole day of July 26 will be
devoted to concurrent dis-
cussions by committees of each of
these items. Reports from both
Committees will then be dis-
cussed and adopted in the final
plenary sessions July 28-30. As in
Mexico City, most delegates are
under strict instructions from
their governments; and unless
western delegates make a strong
effort to prevent this from
happening, bloc votes at the Con-
ference could successfully pass
any anti-Israel language
proposed, no matter how extreme
it might be.

Rabbi Judah Nadich, Chairman, Jewish Welfare Board's
Commission on Jewish Chaplaincy.
In the report to Rabbi Nadich, Chaplain Labinger
described three different areas of work with the refugees.
"First, we had no chaplains here who spoke Spanish,"
he wrote. "Through the Chief of Chaplains and the Air
Force Reserve we got seven Spanish-speaking chaplains.
The chaplains have been out there working 14-15 hours a
day. seven days a week. Their big job is in counseling, in
being there, in ministering to individuals and families
there. They're closer than anyone else to the people at
Camp Liberty, and the chaplains understand their
problems." There are four Catholic priests and three
Protestant ministers working at Camp Liberty.

clothing that was contributed is concerned, the Eglin

Israel Helping to Combat Hunger
From JTA
Israel is so besieged by its
external and economic problems,
by the hostility of most of its
neighbors and by the slavery the
OPEC countries want to impose
on the world that many tend to
forget Israel's constructive,
scientific achievements. Prof.
Nahum Kedar at the agriculture
faculty of the Hebrew University
in Jerusalem, reminds us of what
Israel is capable of doing for the
world today and tomorrow.
An expert on growing wheat,
vegetables and other food plants,
he is convinced that Israel, more
than any other country in the
world, can help relieve hunger in
underdeveloped countries.
The solution, he feels, is to

Possible Reagan'
Running Mate
Raps European
Sen. Richard G. Lugar, (R., Ind.),
a potential Vice Presidential
nominee as Ronald Reagan's
running mate in the Presidential
election, has decried the
"Declaration of Venice" by the
European Economic Community
as being "not a constructive
step" and certain to cause "a lot
of mischief" for the United
States, Egypt and Israel.
Appearing on the CBS
television program Face the
Nation, Lugar responded to a
question about the European
drive to get the PLO into the
Middle Eastern negotiations, by
saying: "It's not a constructive
step, and it could only have
occurred if the Europeans had
come to a conclusion that
(President) Carter was a disaster
and that's the conclusion they've
come to. In other words, that
there is nothing going with this
Administration that is going to
change the Middle East or
anything else.
NOW HAVING come to that
conclusion," Lugar added, "they
(the Europeans) have quietly
gotten their own foreign policy
together and that's going to
cause a lot of mischief not only
for the Egyptians, the Israelis
ad everybody else, but certainly
for us."
Lugar, who is a member of the
Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, was asked whether
"the basic idea of the West
Europeans that the PLO should
in some way be involved in the
negotiations is correct," Lugar
replied: "Oh, I don't think so."

raise the production of food in
those countries by enlarging the
areas of cultivated land, and by
increasing crop yields. Israel is a
prime example of how to do both:
converting large arid areas in the
Negev and Arava into good
agricultural land; and growing
30-50 tons of tomatoes per acre,
as against 10 tons in many
developed countries.
Israeli agricultural experts, as
advisors in underdeveloped
countries, have achieved spec-
tacular results. In Thailand, they
used Israeli peanuts to develop
tremendous yields, 50-80 percent
larger than the local peanut
crops. In the Dominican

Seven Honors Awarded
The Hebrew Day School's
laurels are once again showing.
Recently fifteen of the students
participated in the Yediat Israel
Examination. There were over
16,000 pupils throughout the
country who participated.
The children who took part had
no special preparation, rather
they study Israel as an ongoing
curricular area from Kin-
dergarten through their last year
at the school. How proud the
school was that out of the par-
ticipants we had seven honors.
Six of the children were
recipients of Certificates of
Honorable Mention. These
children were: Seth Feldman,
Michael Frieser, Ted Gayer,
Robert Weiner, David Wish, and
Stephen Zipris.
The seventh child to receive an
award was Justin Fineberg who
won a Bronze award with a score
of 94.
These children and their
progress clearly reflect a positive
attitude and firm commitment to
the acquisition of knowledge that
the Hebrew Day School tries to
Wanted ... Dictating Equipment
Seated from left: Ann Stessel, Mollie Feldman, Esther Raiffe, Rae
Fishman, Minnie Bernbach; standing: Ruth Horowitz, Helen
Rosenquit, Ree Kravitz, Shirley Kent, Gladys Laufer, Millie Schneer,
Rose Silberger, Martha Golden, members of Lauderdale West Ladies
Club, wheeled 11 residents of Covenant Care Nursing Home on an
outing last month to the Broward Mall.
Gladys Laufer, Community Service Chairperson, Lauderdale West
Ladies Club, and the liaison of the W.E.C.A.R.E. Department of the
Jewish Community Center, together with Rae Fishman, club vice
president, were ably assisted by the Plantation Police Department
who safetly escorted the caravan to its destination.
The volunteers wheeled their charges through the mall, stopping
for a special treat of ice cream that was greatly enjoyed, along with
"people watching" during the resting period.
Covenant Care Activities Director Anna Nichols, and her aide,
Judy Flaherty, provided the residents with paper sun hats, and
oriented the volunteers. Permission was obtained for the event from
the residents' families, doctors, and the nursing home dietitian.
The Jewish Community Center of Greater Fort
Lauderdale is in need of dictating equipment.
The Campus of the Jewish
Community Center has been
greatly enhanced thanks to the
generosity of Boy Scout Troop
488. As a community service
project, the scouts, 11 to 14 years
of age, under the leadership of
Scout Master Ed Duffessy and
Assistant Scout Masters Robert
Martin and Stan Weinstein,
planted over 50 sweet gum shade
tree seedlings on the JCC
Perl man Campus. "It's really a
thrill for all of us to be able to
watch these seedlings grow, as
we watch the growth of the
JCC," commented Duffessy.
Anyone having dictating equipment to donate is
asked to please call the Center, 792-6700.
Deaf Build Holy Ark
With the aid of Rabbi Albert B. Schwartz, director of the
Chaplaincy Commission of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, who secured a generous donation of lumber, the Jewish
Community Center Association of the Deaf (JCCAD) is building an
Ark to house a Torah for their religious services.
Members of JCCAD with the aid of a skilled woodcarving
member of JCC and an artist member of JCC are building the Ark,
and now have started a drive to secure a Torah as well as the hard-
ware, cloth and other materials needed to complete the Ark.
Meanwhile JCCAD has been busy with other events, including
the installation of a "TTY", a telephone-telegraph teletype machine,
so JCC staffers can "speak" with the deaf with ease through the
print medium.

Fran Merenstein, Director,
reports that her classes are filling
rapidly. Several classes such as
the First and Second grade are
already closed and children are
being placed on a waiting list.
Limited spaces are available in
the Third and Fifth grades.
The school will be having two
classes in both the Kindergarten
and First grade levels. The
response has been most positive
in the enrollment in these areas.
Being at home on the 16 acre JCC
Campus has certainly added a
superb dimension to the already
excellent program.
The Pre-Kindergarten program
has several places in its three
programs. Parents have the
option of either morning, or
afternoon half-day sessions, full-
day program, or a combination
program. Flexibility and meeting
a child's individual needs are
basic to the program's format.
Children must be four years of
age by December 1 for ad-
mittance to this program.

Three Years and 150,000 Meals Later
4 "
Three years ago the Federally-
funded Kosher Nutrition
program was launched in North
Broward county, in the first floor
meeting room of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, 2999 NW 33rd Ave.,
and in Coral Springs. Since then
some 150,000 meals, catered by
the Glatt Kosher establishment
of Madan in South Broward,
have been served at the
Federation site and since last
year at the Jewish Community
Center's Perlman Campus site,
6501 W. Sunrise Blvd.
And the more than 125 eligible
persons who get their hot kosher
meal Monday through Friday at
the Federation site last month
celebrated the third anniversary.
This is the kosher meals
program which was threatened
with closing a year ago when the
Broward Agency for Aging
reported the cost was too great in
comparison to other nutrition
programs. So Congressman Ed
Stack (D-Fort Lauderdale) with
special substantial funding from
the Jewish Federation to make
up the difference in cost saved
the day and the meals!
And so everybody was in a
joyous mood as Sarah F. Perlis
and her husband, Sam, the
Federation Nutrition Site
Manager, with the help of
volunteers, had the dining hall
decorated, brought in the
Sunshine Singers, sponsored by
Menorah Chapels, and celebrated
the anniversary, plus Father's
Day, plus birthdays and an-
Speeches were made by
Margate's Mayor Richard
Schwartz who is also director of
Senior Citizens for Nutrition
Program of the Agency for
Aging, Joel Telles of the Jewish
Federation, and Helen Nathan of
JCC who is in charge of the
nutrition program at both sites.
A poem was read by Mrs.
Kimmel. Mrs. Perlis read off the
list of June birthdays and the
wedding anniversaries, including
that of Mr. and Mrs. Abe Rubin
who have been married 63 years.
The Sunshine Singers included
Paul Elster, Moe Berg, Maxwell
Schaefer, Sarah Canter, Helen
Herman, Ann Drucker, Marion
Kosut, Vivian Rollo, Mary

June 7 was a memorable day to
the Hebrew Day School. The
school held its first graduation
program for the Fifth grade. This
event was the first in many areas.
For the first time the school had
its own graduating class, many of
whom are children of the found
ing families. The school is at
home on the JCC Campus for its
first permanent home. The first
of many classes to graduate was
the thought of the parent body.
Fran Merenstein, Director of
the school, acted as the MC of the
day. The Fifth grade class
dominated the program format as
they performed an original
cantata, class history and class
Mr. and Mrs. Martin Kurtz,
parents of one of the graduates
and active Board members of the
Hebrew Day School and Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, did a slide
presentation of the history of the
i school. It was a most moving and
informative slide show.
Rabbi Phillip Labowitz, of
Temple Beth Israel and a
founding parent of the school,
participated by reciting the
Opening Prayer. Rabbi
Menachem Raab, director of the
Day Schools of South Florida
from the Central Agency for
Jewish Education in Miami,
Joining in the festivities, Paul
Frieser, president of the board of
directors of the school, presented
the graduates with certificates
and gifts of Siddurim. Abraham
Gittelson, Director of Jewish
Education of the Fort Lauderdale
Federation and Assistant
Director of CAJE, gave the
closing prayer.
A note of community solidarity
was felt in Soref Han on the JCC
Campus during this program. A
commitment to enhancing the
future of the Jewish community
was also there.

NEW YORK The American
Association for Jewish Education
(AAJE) unveiled plans this week
for the coordination of an in-
novative bi-national home
subscription program aimed at
promoting greater family par-
ticipation in Jewish observances.
The program, known as Home
Start, was developed by the
Baltimore Board of Jewish
Educaion as a series of successive
mailings in the weeks preceding
Jewish holidays to families with
three-to-seven-year-old children.
Each mailing of specially
prepared materials a virtual
"how to" kit of stories, games,
recipes, recorded songs and
historical and background in-
formation is designed to help
parents participate with their
children in the conduct of an
enriching and well-rounded
holiday observance in their
The AAJE blueprint for this
pioneering venture calls for its
introduction just prior to
Hanuka this year in 12
American and Canadian cities,
including North Broward County
and Miami.
Home Start will be supported
in part by the initial grant issued
from the Isaac Toubin Jewish
Education Endowment, a fund
created in 1979 by the AAJE in
honor of its executive vice
president emeritus to encourage
creative programming in Jewish
The effort to enroll subscribing
families will be made not only via
schools and synagogues but also
through advertisements in
general and Jewish newspapers
and from available mailing lists
of local Jewish organizations and
"The latter approach is
deliberately intended to attract
parents who, while marginally
involved in Jewish life, may not
as yet have made a commitment
as to the Jewish education of
their children," said Robert
Arnow, chairman of the fund's
trustees. He noted that Home
Start's initial testing in
Baltimore "surpassed the highest
expectations of its creators."
He said that a follow-up study
after a year's exposure in that
community "indicated that
participation spurred a desire for
Jewish affiliation among many of
the non-affiliated, prompted a
rise in Jewish school enrollment
among families who had been
hesitant and generated a marked
feeling of enthusiasm among
both children and parents."
The AAJE leader explained
that the rationale for the project
"is rooted in the belief that the
home is the most critical religious
and cultural influence in the
Jewish educational process.
"If Jewish educators are to
succeed in helping build the
Jewish community to
tomorrow," he said, "they must
seek ways like this of enlisting
the home as an ally."
The Baltimore Board of Jewish
Education has prepared
materials not only on Hanuka
but on Purim, Passover,
Shavuot. Rosh Hashana, Yom
Kippur, Sukkot, Simhat Torah
and the Sabbath.
The mailings will be sup-
plemented by demonstration
sessions for parents "on the
'what,' 'how' and 'why' of Jewish
holidays" that will be led by
education specialists from
community federations and
central agencies for Jewish
In addition, following the
example employed in Baltimore,
the AAJE will assisit these local
bodies in running seminars to
train lay persons who will be
prepared to answer questions
from parents and who, if called
upon, will also visit families to
provide further information and
Different versions of each set of
holiday materials have been
tailored to meet the needs of
families of Conservative,
Orthodox and Reform orientation
and, as well, for homes with
children of pre-school and
primary school age 3 to 4 and 5
to 7, respectively.
Arnow said that following the
first year's nationwide experience
with Home Start, the AAJE will
evaluate its impact and efficacy
and suggest modifications when
necessary in order for it to be
disseminated among all in-
terested Jewish communities
throughout North America.. .
More Than Ever.
We Are One.
Q: Why should the Zeppelin
really be called a "Schwartz?
A: Because "The Zeppelin" was
invented by David Schwartz.
David Schwartz was an 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 with friends at home.

Not This Eruption
The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Page 11
Miami's Riot Was Man-Made Disaster
Mankind can't be blamed for
the eruption of Mt. St. Helens in
the state of Washington. But
conditions and habits generated
by mankind must bear the blame
for the explosion in Miami where
three days of rioting brought
death to 17, injuries to 400 and
arrests to 1,200.
In America's hot summer of
1967, President Johnson set up
the National Advisory Com-
mission on Civil Disorders. From
that body evolved the com-
prehensive Kerner Report. The
distinguished and troubled
Americans producing that paper
were challenged to find answers
to three questions: 1- What
happened?; 2- Why did it hap-
?; 3- What can be done to
prevent it from happening again?
RIOTS IN 23 American cities
were surveyed. Rock-throwing
and window-smashing in
practically all instances led to a
series of fires. The fires consumed
inner city shops and stores.
Looting was widespread.
Violence burst from the ghettos
just as hot ash in recent days has
shot forth from Mt. St. Helens.
In drafting its report, the
Kerner Commission studied old
newspaper files on earlier
American riots. And some will
now recall what Dr. Kenneth B.
Clark, one of the nation's most
brillant psychologists, said in
that period:
"I read that report ... of the
1919 riot in Chicago, and it is as if
1 were reading the report of the
investigating committee on the
Harlem riot of '35, the report of
the investigating committee on
the Harlem riot of '43, the report
of the McCone Commission on
the Watts riot. I must again in
candor say ... it is a kind of
Alice in Wonderland, with the
same moving picture re-shown
over and over again, the same
analysis, the same recom-
mendations, and the same
AND WHILE no objective
observer can deny that in the 13
years since publication of the
Kerner Report, the frequency and
toll of urban riots have
diminished, time bombs continue
to tick in the hearts of our great
cities. Most of us all acknowledge
that notable gains have been
made by blacks and other
minority peoples in such areas as
education and access to public
accommodations and for
certain segments of these
populations even in em-
The non-violent approach, born
iwith Thoreau, employed by
[Gandhi, and sharpened to a fine
art by Martin Luther King, has
proved a healing factor. But
unemployment and un-
deremployment continue to fester
in the ghettos; the familiar
promise of decent, sanitary, and
' adequate housing for all is a
I bubble burst in an era of steep
inflation; and the potential for
| more uprisings continues in
< evidence.
Was Miami different then? Not
[completely. But the influx of
ICubans some 600,000 already
Ion hand with 113,000 recent
arrivals on top of that added
|an ominous factor of fear for the
black community of 240,000. In
the paat 50 years, Miami, nearly
twice the size of Rhode Island,
[had attracted millions of tourists
land provided jobs for thousands
of blacks. A favorable climate, a
place for fun, an opportunity to
develop black businesses had all
en plus factors.
NOW THE storm has struck.
Arthur McDuffie, 33, a black, a
[former Marine, an insurance
executive, has been beaten to
death while in the hands of police.
Weak prosecution has brought to
\he surface grievances over
previous cases of alleged police
utality. National anxiety
coloring the Miami upheaval will
not go away.
In the 1%0's. when an
epidemic of urban riots prompted
the government to make
thorough inquiry by way of the
Kerner Commission, diagnosis
and prescription were clear
enough. The need to set up
appreciate civic structures and
grievances mechanisms, to in-
tensify educational programs, to
smash discriminatory practices,
to upgrade police procedures and
establish police community
relations units, and above all
to widen job opportunities for
blacks was spelled out in detail.
But time revealed a fatal flaw.
Total commitment was absent.
ONE YEAR after the ap-
pearance of the Kerner Report,
Terry Sanford, then President of
Urban America, asked us to take
note of the irrefutable fact that
this nation seemed "content to
let the future happen, largely
without agreement on its design
or direction."
He may have been wrong.
Perhaps there is design: it is to
spend billions to build another
Maginot Line, to recreate For-
tress America, to advance
towards nuclear warfare. To do
all this in fear of an external
enemy while failing to confront
the enemy within the foe of
civic lethargy and neglect.

Second Anniversary
Of Scharansky Trial
Anatoly Scharansky. two
years ago this July 14, went on
trial in Moscow on charges of
treason and anti-Soviet agitation
and propaganda. He was sen-
tenced to three years im-
prisonment, and 10 years of
special regime camp.
Because of the continuing
concern expressed for him and
other prisoners of conscience in
the Soviet Union, the authorities
recently transferred Shcharansky
to a labor camp where he is
reported in somewhat improved
Recent developments,
however, indicate a decided
erosion in emigration and the
escalation of personal
harassment of Jews. The number
of Jews who left in the first four
months of this vear has declined
more than 50 per cent, compared
with the same period last year.
The bulk of long-term
refuseniks are still denied per-
mission, and more than a half
dozen arrests and trials of Jewish
activists took place in recent

Report British Jews Is Falasha Extinction Imminent?

Victims of Attack
series of attacks on British
Jews visiting the Soviet
Union has sparked a bitter
diplomatic row between the
two countries. Nikolai
Lunkov, the Soviet Am-
bassador, was called to the
Foreign Office and told of
an organized KGB cam-
paign of "assault, intimi-
dation and harassment"
against British tourists.
The Soviet Embassy said that
Britain's protest was part of its
campaign against the Moscow
Olympics and an attempt to
intimidate would-be visitors to
the Games. It denied there was a
campaign against Jewish
tourists and replied that Moscow
and Leningrad were no different
from London where certain parts
of the city are unsafe.
IN FACT, Jewish communal
circles here had been buzzing for
months with reports of attacks
on British visitors to the Soviet
Union who were trying to
maintain contact with Jewish
"refusniks" there. The attackers
were always in plainclothes, but
the victims had no doubt that
they were secret policemen
rather than private individuals.
Among those attacked were a
London doctor, Michael Herz,
and Peter Fischer. During a visit
to Leningrad in March, they
were beaten up on the street by
ten people after visiting a refus-
nik's apartment and on the
advice of British diplomats they
cut their Soviet visit short. Also
in Leningrad, two young women
tourists from Manchester were
attacked and robbed of their
Victims of official harassment
include Mr. and Mrs. Wally
Simpson of North London.
During a visit to Kiev, they
contacted a refusnik family, the
Oleiniks, and were later held by
the KGB for three hours and
accused of trying to sell jeans
and perfume.

The Rabbinical Association of
Greater Miami has issued a
statement expressing its concern
for the Black Jewish community
of Ethiopia which is facing ex-
The statement was issued in
the name of the Association by
its president, Rabbi Simcha
Freedman of Temple Adath
Yeshurun, and its executive vice
president. Rabbi Solomon Schiff,
director of chaplaincy, Greater
Miami Jewish Federation.
"This group, which numbered in
the hundreds of thousands, has
been systematically decimated
until now there are only 28,000
Falasha Jews existing in this
country (Ethiopia), for hundreds
and hundreds of years. We
recognize the members of this
community as our brothers even
as have the Ashkenazic and
Sephardic Chief Rabbis and the
Government of Israel.
"We urge that all efforts be
made by the State of Israel and
by the United States Govern-
ment to enable this endangered
community to be allowed to
emigrate from Ethiopia. As a
civilized community we look*
aghast at the government of
Ethiopia which does not allow
these individuals who wish to
leave to do so in peace. This is a
suppression of rights which are
guaranteed in the Declaration of
Rights signed by the United
Nations years ago."
The Association urged the
government of Ethiopia to "let
our people go," adding, "We urge
those who are in power to do so to
use every avenue to see to it that
these Jews be allowed to
emigrate to those countries who
wish to take them in. It has come
to our attention that over 400
Black Jews have made their way
to Israel and have made an
extraordinary adjustment.
"THEY ARE an industrious,
intelligent and loyal Jewish
community. We look forward
with hope and we pray that the
rest of this exceptional com-
munity will be allowed to find
refuge in the very near future.
"We pledge to do whatever in
our power to bring the attention
of our own Jewish community

the gamesmanship and sev-

pled upon to exoerience the
blood and the agony and the
kicking and the screaming of
birth twice in its lifetime.
AS A regression away from the
maturity that Miami has never
reached, it does not matter who
conducts the campaign for a re-
vitalized Philharmonic not
their names, their economic and
public relations clout; nor even,
silently their power to coerce
other enterprises here into co-
operating economically in a Phil-
harmonic revival even when pit-
bulls are more to the mass liking.
What matters toward the de-
veloping of a successful Phil-
harmonic anywhere is a com-
munity longing for great music.
And Miami just doesn't have
that longing, especially not now,
when the ugliness of expanding
concrete to make room for a cul-
turally and linguistically con-
fused city struggles with its
future survival as a city with a
certain identity.
Historically, great art has
flourished not in turmoil but in
tranquility. People who still don't
know who and what they are
seem ill-disposed toward obses-
sions with art.
Dade County has been of-
ficially granted the dubious dis-
tinction of being multi-cultural
and multi-ethnic. Until the war is
decided over this ill-conceived toil
and trouble, just which music
would be of Philharmonic quality
anyway? Orchestras traditionally
rely on voluminous European
output, with a dash of second-
rate American thrown in if only
to be patriotic. Would a Phil-
harmonic here and now have to
choose its repertoire according to
Title Nine and the previsions of
equal access equal opportunity?
AN ABSURD piece of music
about the Yellow River (Yangtze)
written, not by an individual
composer but by a Red Chinese
committee, was recorded some
years ago by Eugene Ormandy
and the Philadelphia Orchestra to
mark Ormandys and the or-
chestra's State Department-
sponsored cultural exchange visit
to Peking as part of our new Far
East political initiative. The
music is an abomination a
tribute perhaps to politics and
certainly to the Communist
principle that individual effort
(which is what art is all about
remember?) is decadent
degenerate, bourgeois and anti-
In China, it is communal
destiny that counts, not personal
existential joy or agony which in
the west composes the artistic
experience. In a sense, here in
Miami, we are closer to the
Chinese view of things.
Multi-cultural, multi-ethnic,
multi-lingual, we dare not be
individual, or we are certain to
break one federal law or another
governing these things. We are
committed, at least for the time
being, to rotten music like the
Chinese committee that wrote the
phony tone poem about the
Yellow River.
RECKONED in these terms,
the Philharmonic's future here
appears to be dismal whoever
heads the latest bid for reincar-
nation, Julian Kreeger included,
a man of many parts, whom I
Until perhaps he. too, is forced
to pull the old stiletto (the ar-
tist's instrument at least as
important to him as the instru-

the wrong thing.

Begin Confident Likud
Party Will be Winner
JERUSALEM (JTA) Prime Minister
Menachem Begin told the Likud Knesset faction that he
was confident Likud would win the next elections,
scheduled to be held in 1981. But he said he strongly
favoreji the merger of all of the factions comprising
Likuddnto a single party for which he proposed the name
"Likuffor Israel Party."

Urned over a new leaf." At the last Cabinet
meeting, he said, there were no raised voices, no ex-
changes of insults. The four-hour meeting brief by
Cabinet standards was businesslike and efficient,
Begin said.
However, there was one jarring note. Herut MK
Dov Shilansky deplored attacks by some ministers on
Agriculture Minister Ariel Sharon, the leading spokes-
man for a hard line toward Arabs who create disorders in
the occupied territories and for massive Jewish settle-
ment of the West Bank.
HE REFERRED specifically to a private letter
written by Deputy Prime Minister Simcha Ehrlich of the
Liberal Party to an unidentified member of the party in
which he expressed fear that if Sharon had been named
Defense Minister he might have engineered a coup d'etat
and ended democratic government in Israel. Ehrlich
refused to apologize for the letter which was leaked to
the press last week.

visas were granted. They planned
to leave for Vienna to collect the
visas and proceed to Moscow.
But the Soviet Embassy in

All arms of the Temple Sholom
of Pompano Beach congregation
are participating in a dynamic
program to gain freedom for the
Pavel Peretzovich Abramovich
family in Moscow. For the past
nine years, Abramovich, his wife
Marta, and son Felix have
applied for visas to emigrate to
Israel, and every time they have
been refused.
Abramovich was a highly
respected and successful elec-
tronics radio engineer, but since
applying for the visa he has been
unemployed, earning a livelihood
as best he can by teaching
Temple Sholom Board of
Directors, the Sisterhood and the
Men's Club, under the chair-
manship of Esther Cannon,
Soviet Jewry and Community
Affairs chairman for the Temple,
are supporting the program by
writing letters not only to
Abramovich, but to Soviet
leaders including Brezhnev,
Kosygin, and Dobrynin to urge
them to permit the Abramovich
family to leave Russia.
Abramovich is acting with
great courage, she said, having
already renounced his Soviet
citizenship, claiming instead,
Israeli citizenship. He has sent
appeals to the United Nations
Human Rights Commission,
issued press statements, and has
been arrested on several oc-
casions for demonstrating in
protest to the treatment afforded
Jews in Russia. He has been
subject to threats, harrassments

Members of Temple Sholom
have started their deluge of

It is hoped that a "good
progress" report will be availabe
for announcement during the
High Holy Days in September.

temple members are assisting in
the program.
Publicity director David
Klempner notes: "We cannot
forget the cooperation of the city
in getting our new Temple off to
its auspicious start in this, its
first year, corresponding with
Margate's 25th year." He said
the Center, established in 1959
has kept up with Margate's
growth and toasted the continued
health of Temple Beth Am at its
new location, Rock Island Rd.
and Royal Palm Blvd. and
Margate's new city hall complex
on State Rd. 7.

News in Review
Shamir Raps Weapons to Jordan
JERUSALEM In the first
public Israeli criticism of
reported U.S. intentions to sell
sophisticated new weaponry to
Jordan, Foreign Minister Yitz-
hak Shamir said here Monday
such sales would upset the
military balance and encourage
Jordan in its refusal to enter the
peace process. Shamir made the
remarks in an interview on Radio
In recent days, Israel has made
quiet representations to
Washington in the wake of
reports that the U.S. will sell
King Hussein sophisticated night
warfare equipment and new
tanks. Shamir spoke of
"aggressive" weaponry in the
proposed deal and said it would
"strengthen Jordan's resolve to
adhere to the Rejectionist Front'
of Arab states which do not
conceal their aggressive designs
against Israel.
"All sale of such arms to
Jordan and other rejectionist
states upsets the strategic
balance in the area," Shamir said.
Anwar Sadat of Egypt strongly
repudiated the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization and revived his
proposal that autonomy for the
Palestinian Arabs should be
implemented in the Gaza Strip
first before it is applied to the
West Bank
In an interview on Israeli
television, Sadat said he has
instructed Foreign Minister
Kama! Hassan Ali to raise the
Gaza-first proposal when the
autonomy talks resume. Ali,
Interior Minister Yosef Burg
who is Israel's chief negotiator on
autonomy and U.S. special
Ambassador Sol Linowitz are
scheduled to meet in Washington
early next month to set a date for
resuming the talks.
Sadat also said that he would
have liked to invite Prime
Minister Menachem Begin to
Cairo to address the Egyptian
Peoples Council (parliament! but
refrained from doing so in order
to protect the popularity Begin
still has among the Egyptian
MONTREAL Rabbi David
Feuerwerker, a well known
Jewish scholar, died Friday night
at the Jewish General Hospital
after a series of heart attacks. He
was 68 years old.
Messages of sympathy from
Pope John Paul II, French Pres-
ident Valery Giscard d'Estaing
and from the French Jewish com-
munity poured into Montreal
during the weekend. A funeral
service will be held today in front
of his home and then the body,
accompanied by his wife and five
children, will be flown to Israel
for burial.
The Swiss-born Feuerwerker
was a war hero and university
Clessor who served as spiritual
ler of North America's
French-speaking Jews.
TEL AVIV Police still have
no clue to the whereabouts of
eight-year-old Oron Yarden, kid-
napped in Tel Aviv two weeks
ago. The search and investigation
are continuing while well-inten-
tioned persons and perpetrators
of hoaxes raised hopes that
rapidly faded into despair.
An anonymous telephone caller
to Abie Nathan's "Voice of
Peace" radio station said Oron
would be returned the next
morning, but that turned out to
be a hoax. Last Thursday, Israel
Radio broadcast a tape of the
voice of one of the kidnappers
who spoke to Oron's parents by
telephone shortly after the child
disappeared Thousands of
persons telephoned the police
claiming they recognized the
Yitzhak Shamir
voice, but no fresh leads turned
The child was kidnapped by
unknown persons on June 8. His
parents paid the IL 2 million de-
manded by the kidnappers on
June 10, but their son was not
released and nothing has been
heard from the kidnappers since
Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim expressed "great
concern" here over news reports
that Prime Minister Menachem
Begins office and the conference
room of the Israeli Cabinet are to
be moved to East Jerusalem.
In a statement issued by a UN
spokesman, Waldheim declared,
"If this decision is confirmed, it
will inevitably affect the status of
Jerusalem and therefore be in
contravention of resolutions and
decisions of the General
Assembly and Security Council.
Any such action will further
heighten tension in the area anc"
render more difficult the search
for a comprehensive, just and
lasting settlement in the Middle
putting up no preconditions to
the resumption of the stalled
autonomy talks, and it expects
Egypt to do likewise, chief nego-
tiator Yosef Burg announced here
Monday. Burg spoke to newsmen
after a brief meeting of the
Ministerial Autonomy Com-
mittee under Prime Minister
Begin, and prior to his departure
en route to Washington where he
is to meet with Linowitz and Ali.
His reference was apparently
to recent Egyptian statements
demanding Israeli pledges on
settlements and on the Jerusalem
He also aired reservations over
Sadat's restated proposal to
focus on "Gaza-first."
"At this moment," the Israel
Minister said, it would be
"harmful" to separate out the
Gaza issue from the "Camp
David entity" as a whole.
LONDON While the PLO is
gaining in political respectability,
an increasing number of non-
Arabs have reportedly been
passing through its terrorist
training schools.
The Daily Telegraph, quoting
western intelligence sources,
gives details of foreigners who
last year underwent terror
training courses at a camp in
Hamouriya. Syria, run by Al-
Fatah. Yasir Arafat's
The camp, south of Damascus,
is said to have hosted four West
Germans, six members of the
Italian Red Brigades, four
members of the Japanese Red
Star Army, three members of the
Spanish Basque ETA terrorist
organization, 28 members of the
Argentine Montoneros group, 12
Brazilians, 30 Armenian Turks,
and 170 Iranians. There were also
180 recruits from various African
countries and 32 Asians, many of
them from the Philippines.
TEL AVIV A grocer and
two of his customers were injured
when an explosion ripped
through a grocery shop in Bnei
Brak. One of the injured was a
pregnant woman. Police suspect
terrorist activity and are trying
to determine how the explosives

ish and Arab mayors met in this
Galilee town in an effort to
improve relations between their
communities in northern Israel.
But the discussion degenerated
rapidly into heated exchanges
and no formula for co-existence
was reached.
| Mayor Mkha Goldmann of
I Kifar Tabor, who organized the
meeting, attempted to restrict
the agenda to municipal prob
lems. But Mayor Tawfik Zayyad
of Nazareth, a Communist
member of the Knesset, injected
a bitter political note. He said the
Arabs of Galilee never challenged
the fact that the region was an
integral part of Israel. But, he
charged, when Israelis speak of
developing Galilee, they actually
mean its Judaization pushing
out the Arab population.
