Special Mission to Israel
A limited number of per-
sons will join Ethel Wald-
man for the UJA-sponsored
Prime Minister's Special
Mission to Israel Aug. 1
through Aug. 4. It's the
earliest ever for a Prime
Minister Mission which usu-
ally launches the new UJA-
Federation campaign around
the country. The urgency of
the current situation in
Israel is the reason.
This is to be a first-hand,
in-person evaluation of the
impact of "Peace in Galilee"
operation on Israel's people
and on the humanitarian
Erogram UJA has worked so
ard over the years to fund.
Highlights of this very
special Mission are expected
to include a visit with Prime
Minister Menachem Begin,
a tour of strategic areas in
southern Lebanon, visits
with soldiers and residents of
the Galilee and briefings by
high-level military and
government officials.
In Jerusalem. Max M. Fisher
of Detroit, chairman of the Board
of Governors of the Jewish
Agency for Israel, major recip-
ient of the funds contributed to
UJA-Federation campaigns,
said: "The people of Israel have
had to pay a heavy human coat
for Operation Peace for the Gali-
lee that they should be free of the
threat of terrorism. It is therefore
essential that the Jewish Agency
increase substantially its partici-
pation in the funding of those
welfare, education and health
programs which have been tradi-
tional responaibilitiee of the Jew-
iah Agency."

Jewish Family Service Dedicates New Office in Deerfield Beach
After Rabbi Leon Mirsky of Deerfield Beach's Tem-
| Beth Israel at Century Village East affixed a mezu-
at the front door, Deerfield's Mayor Jean Robb,
rounded by the city's councilman, cut the ribbon
[ning the newest office of the Jewish Family Service
PS) of Broward County. Far right Brian Sherr, presi-
fctof JFS, with his daughter Alexa and Rabbi Mirsky
Wing on. affixed a mezuzah to the entrance of one of
t offices.
mezuzah (like the others with a parchment scroll
,' on which are written two Biblical passages from
uteronomy) was also affixed at the entrance of other
rooms within the office by Irving Friedman of Century
Village and Israel Resnikoff of Margate, board mem-
bers of JFS, who were instrumental in finding the loca-
tion and facilitating the establishment of the offices at
1800 W. Hillsboro Blvd., Suite 214.
The JFS Agency, extending its services of meeting
the social and emotional needs of the community, was
joined in the Biblical ceremony by the city officials be-
cause its services are available to the community,
regardless of religion or race, and because it works in
concert with local government, health and social agen-
cies in the area.
Sherwin H. Rosenstein, JFS executive director, an-
nounced that Ms. Merrill Uoldrich will be the social
worker in residence at the office, assisted by Georgette
Mirsky who serves as office receptionist-secretary. He
also praised the voluntary efforts of Esther and Irving
Friedman and Zelda and Jim Stepner in arranging for
the festivities and acting as hosts and hostess for the
more than 100 people who attended.
JFS President Sherr said that aa the office identifies
the needs in the community and expansion of services is
required. JFS expects to increase its staff in direct
proportion. The office is open from 9 to 5 daily, and
Thursdays until 9 p.m.

UJA Gets Brith Shalom
Humanitarian Award
NEW YORK The National
Order of Brith Shalom, one of the
nation's oldest Jewish fraternal
and charitable organizations, has
named the United Jewish Appeal
winner of its 1982 Humanitarian
Award for its "contributions to
humanity and for service to the
JeWish communities throughout
the world."
UJA is the first national orga-
nization to be honored with the
Award, which was established in
1944 when Rabbi Stephen S.
Wise of the American Jewish
Congress was the recipient. Other
winners include President Frank-
lin D. Roosevelt; Abba Hillel
Silver, co-founder of UJA: author
Elie Wiesel; Trygive Lie.1
Secretary General of the United
stations; the participants in the
rescue of the Entebbe hostages;
.he author and producers of the
'Holocaust" television mini-
series, and Israeli Prime Minister
Menechem Begin.
Tie Award will be presented
by Joshua Eilberg, national
Executive Director of Brith
Shalom, during the organiza-
tion's annual convention at the
Concord Hotel in Kiamesha
Lake, New York. Dr. Aryeh
Nesher, a special representative
of the Prime Minister to Jewish
communities in the United States
who heads UJA's "Operation
Breakthrough" will accept the
award on behalf of UJA.
Brith Shalom was founded in
1905 in Philadelphia, Pennsy-
lvania, to aid Jewish immigrants
to the United States. It has
10,000 members in 40 chapters
and lodges nationwide. Its activi-
ties have included the rescue of
children from Nazi Europe prior
to World War II, establishment
of the cancer research laboratory
at the Albert Einstein School of
Medicine at Yeshiva University
and construction in the 1960s of
the Brith Shalom House for
Senior Citizens, which became a
nationally known prototype for
homes for elderly.
Brith Shalom Foundation, the'
organization's fundfaiaing arm,
is currently financing construc-
tion of Beit Halochem in Haifa,
Israel, a rehabilitation center for
war-injured soldiers who are resi-
dents of Northern Israel.
The United Jewish Appeal was
created in 1939 by the American
Jewish community as its princi-
pal fund raising agency for the
rescue of Jews from lands of dis-
tress and their rehabilitation and
resettlement in freedom.
Funds allocated from UJA-
Federation campaigns help fi-
nance the humanitarian
programs and services of the
Jewish Agency for Israel and the
American Jewish Joint Distribu-
tion Committee (JDC) in Israel
and in 33 other nations through-
out the world.
Funds from UJA campaigns
also support HIAS, which in
recent years has been instru-
mental in resettlement of Jews
from the Soviet Union, and the
New York Association of New
Americans (NYANAI, which as-
sists immigrant Jews in resettl-
ing in the United States.
Since its founding, annual
UJA campaigns have aided more
than three million immigrant
Jews, more than half of whom
have settled in Israel.
Chiles Joins Dr. Brown
in Seeking 'Isaiah' Stamp
Dr. Samuel Brown of Century
Village East, Deerfield Beach,
who won a four-year red-tape
struggle in 1975 to have the name
"Isaiah" chiseled on the Biblical
quotation on the Isaiah Wall fac-
ing the United Nations entrance,
believes it's time that the U.S.
Postal System honored Isaiah
with a commemorative postage

taking groups on historic sites of
interest to the Jewish communi-
ty. It was on one of those New
York tours that he wondered
about the lack of the author's
name on the Isaiah Wall.
Now, in addition to leading
groups on tours of Miami's Jew-
ish historic sites, Dr. Brown is
also spearheading a movement in
Deerfield Beach to have shelters
built at bus stops in that com-
munity. All this while he also
leads the American Jewish Con-
gress chapter in Century Village.
An Israeli Responds to Media
While the Family Mission
participants were in the upper
northern part of Israel during
their visit last month, a Kibbutz-
nik, David lachmann of Kibbutz
Tuval, told them:
"Every single time I hear or
n read of the Lebanon situation I
j, am amazed to see to what extent
; newspapers are willing to distort
S the facts.1
"Your .neiition of 30,000
civilians deed, for example, was
presumably a Red Cross figure.
After further checking. Red
Cross said that those were PLO
figures that had not been veri-
fied Since the PLO hardly wants
I to whitewash Israel's attack, I
think you are rather naive to take
S those figures for granted.
"Besides, those supposedly
brave Palestinian freedom fight-
ers, obviously, arouse acclaim
with those who are far away from
them. Those take smetsmsmimmm
to the PLO. The Lebanese point
out that many PLO camps and
strongholds were placed among
the civilian population, even
using mosques, apartment build-
ings and other places as storage
for their ammunition and

they have so just a cause, let
them prove it by fighting for it,
instead of hiding behind the good

ifha b'Av-July 29
Tragic Events Memorialized
Last Thursday (July 8) was the beginning of a three-week
mi-mourning period for observant Jews, leading to the obser-
vance of Tisha b'Av (July 29. the saddaat and moat tragic day
in the year.
Observant Jews mark the day with total fasting. Aa on Yom
Kinour (Day of Atonement), eating or drinking anything from
before sundown on the eighth of Av (Wednesday, July 28) till
nightfall on the following day is forbidden.
Tisha b'Av commemorates the destruction of the First Tem-
0le in Jerusalem in 586 BCE (Before the Common Era). By his-
torical coincidence, it is also the anniversary of the Second Tem-
ple in 70 CE (Common Era).
In subsequent centuries, Tisha b'Av became identified with
still other tragic events in the life of Jewish people. It waa on
Tisha b'Av, 1492, that the decree ordering the expulsion of all
Jews from Spain was issued. The only alternative to that decree
was death or conversion to Christianity. Many Jews fled to
During the three-week period leading to Tisha b'Av, weddings
; are not permitted. A wide spread custom during the Nine Days
preceding Tisha b'Av is to abstain from meat and wine, except
for the Sabbath day and except for a religious feast.
There are other mourning practices observed on that day.
There is no more appropriate occasion in the year to remem-
ber mourn and grieve over all the those occasions in Israel's
history which were steeped in sorrow and suffering in death and
torture, in cruelty and oppression, all of which reached their cli-
max in the European Holocaust (1940-1946) when over a third of
all Jewish people, more than six million men, women and chil-
dren, were systematically and barbarically put to death after the
most unbelievable suffering.
Mourn, too. for the hundreds of young men who died in recent
weeks so that Israel can live in peace. Mourn, too, for the hun-
dreds of men, women and children killed by terroristic bombing
and shelling by Palestine Liberation Organization guerrillas.

Middle East Scenario
The scenario for the outcome in Lebanon, at
least this week, reminds us of the final days of the
1973 Yom Kippur War. Victory may yet be snatched
from the Israelis ex-post facto.
After suffering the condemnation of a
hypocritical world, after inflicting losses on others,
and suffering losses in the form of deaths and injuries
among its own personnel, Israel may yet find that it
has achieved little in Beirut.
Early on this week, amid indications that the
U.S. will be sending troops to Beirut to escort the
tatters of the Palestine Liberation Organization out
of Lebanon's capital city onto boats and a new home,
possibly in Egypt, three things emerged:
Israel will have accomplished the removal of
the Palestinian menace from its northern border;
Israel will have humbled the Syrians and sent
them and their Soviet sponsors home;
Israel will have given the Lebanese the
j opportunity of reestablishing their sovereignty in the
" form of a democratic government.
At the same time, two other possibilities loom
on the horizon:
Henceforward, Israel must suffer the con-
demnation of the world rigged by superior
Palestinian anti-Israel propaganda that won the day
in the media. Whatever positive things Israel may
have achieved in Lebanon, there will be no ex-
pressions of thanks or admiration, especially not for
the humbling experience Israel dealt the Soviet
Union's ambitions in the Middle East;
Whether or not the next PLO stop is in
I Egypt, the strain on relations between Israel and
:j:| Egypt has wreaked a terrible toll on future hopes for
I peace between these two ancient adversaries.
>S; President Hosni Mubarak's accepting of an in-
;g vi tat ion to attend a non-aligned conference in Bagh-
dad next September is symbolic of that wrenching
experience. Egypt appears not only to be returning
to the Arab fold, but to the bosom of one of the most
intransigent anti-western, anti-Israel Arab nations.
Even if, in the end, Israel has won the campaign.
the PLO is not necessarily dead. Nor is the war
conclusively won. Not yet, anyway.

Project Renewal Residents Mobilize for Peace
ISRAEL When "Operation Peace For Gali-
lee" emptied Project Renewal neighborhoods in
Israel of the men serving as project managers and
professional staff, those neighborhoods remained
full. Full of giving.
The women, children and elderly men left be-
hind mainly immigrants from North Africa,
Asia and the Middle East who had only recently
been into the rites of democratic process through
Renewal programs and services spontaneously
mobilized one of the most impressive and warmly
human crisis-support actions in Israel's civilian
Even with their manpower gone to war, the
residents of Renewal neighborhoods, linked to
American Jewish communities through United
Jewish Appeal-Federation campaigns, had a
structure for community action. Even without
their established leaders present, they could
mobilize for giving. Throughout the intensive
early days of the action in Lebanon, they assumed
responsibility, asserted leadership, and effective-
ly applied organizational and managerial skills
only recently acquired.
In Afula. within a matter of hours, women and
children from the Renewal neighborhood filled
trucks to the brim with packages they collected
from soldiers' families. The trucks were speeded
northward full of cigarettes, candy, changes of
socks and hurriedly written notes wishing for the
men's safety, peace for all, life. This set a pattern
for dozens of Project Renewal neighborhoods.
Youngsters began collecting bundles and letters,
continuously bringing them to central points,
loading them onto waiting trucks and sending
them off "special delivery" to the front lines.
Aiding Soldiers
In Nahariya. where outlying factories suffered
millions of dollars worth of damage from shelling
immediately preceding Israel's move into Leba-
non, the Project Renewal office was quickly
turned into a public kitchen by Renewal volun-
teers. According to an eyewitness observer, "you
literally have to clamber over cheese and sardine
tins to get in to what has become a major food
districution center for soldiers en route to and
from the front."
Youngsters from Hatzor's Renewal neighbor-
hood set up a roadside stand to serve coffee, soft
drinks, sandwiches and cakes to the long convoys
passing by. One high school student was on duty
when an older brother he had not heard from for a
week stopped there, by pure chance, for a cup of
coffee. The soldier brother continued on to the
front to do his duty. The younger boy remained
at his roadside postto do his.
Renewal volunteers from Haifa met soldiers in
a much more painful context. They went to Ram-
ban Hospital to visit the wounded. The battle
scarred patients were not their own husbands,
fathers, sons; they were simply family, that
larger family is all Israel. The visitors came to

Cash Donations
In Netanya, members of the Project Renewal
neighborhood committee stationed themselvai
the entrances to grocery stores. As each person
arrived they asked for a cash donation. NooDtL.
fused. Every person gave cash on the spot.
In the HaTikvah quarter of Tel Aviv one of ta. I
most crowded and long suffering of the Renewal
neighborhoods, the Project Renewal neighbor^
hood committee set an example by donating
10.000 shekels (about $450) and soon raised M
additional 20,000 shekels (about SI.000).
At Amishav in Peta Tikva. 50 women who
themselves being helped by Renewal, leamingT
read and write in the special Tehila prograrndk
covered they too could give. They baked cak'w,
sold them, and turned the money over to the
peace effort.
At Or Yehuda, children walked from door to
door, reaching out to every family. They asked for
books, games, sweets, art supplies-anything to
calm children their own age and keep them busy.
Then, taking nothing for themselves, they per
sonally delivered the gifts to the children of the
town of Shlomi, shelled by terrorists.
And in Tel Mond, where 70 percent of the peo-
ple in the Renewal neighborhood are without tele-
phones, a volunteer message center was im-
mediately set up and continues to be manned 24
hours a day. When word comes from a soldier for
his family, a runner goes to his apartment and
knocks on the door. "Your son Riffi called. He is
safe and well." "Your husband Abraham sends
his love to you and the children." And even, ina
lighter vein: "Take care of the little puppy. Re-
member to feed him."
In essence, Project Renewal has become the
address for giving in Israel during this current
crisis. As an outstanding example, one elderly
woman brought her whole month's pension check
into the Renewal office in Or Akiva. "All I ask,"
she said, "is that you give it to the navy."
Sharply tested under crisis conditions, the
350,000 people of Israel's Project Renewal neigh-
borhoods are emerging with great dignity and a
heightened sense of their own value and capacity
to give. They are making one great leap that has
always been the basic human goal of Renewal:
they ore vigorously and effectively entering the
mainstream of Israeli life.

The Torah was rescued from
the village of Vlasim in Czecho-
slovakia at the time when it was
over-run during World War II. It
was inscribed on parchment by a
sofer (scribe) sometime between
1820 and 1840.
An engraved brass plate on the

British Airways flight to the
Miami International Airport
where a customs broker made the
arrangements to clear it through
U.S. Customs.
Elli Levy, JCC's director for
JCCAD, shown with members of
the association, brought it to the
Center at 6501 W. Sunrise Blvd.
for them to see it.
A consecration and dedication
ceremony is planned. Meanwhile
the scroll will be placed in an aron
kodesh (Holy Ark) built by mem-
bers of JCCAD and be used when
the group holds its signed High
Holy Days services at Temple
Among those gathered around
the scroll are Henry Hyman, JCC
board member who is chairman of
JCCAD; Morton Rosenfeld,
president; Abe Cohen, vice presi-
dent; David Heine, treasurer;
Aaron Fogel who was treasurer of
the Religious Fund which raised
the money to secure the Torah.
Elli Levy said JCCAD will
seek to have a mantle made or
contributed to cover the Torah
and will accept contributions for
a yod (finger) a pointer used
to follow the text on the scroll,
and for other ornamentation used
in "dressing" a Torah.
In other JCCAD activities,

complete notes from our previous

sured he would not be wasting his
words or time.
As we progressed it became
apparent this really is a well
functioning family. The parents
in trying to be responsive to
Stevie's feelings were permitting
him to get too out of bounds and
he did better with quick setting
of limits. The other children re-
sponded well to their relaxed dis-
cussion with children parenting

The parents took a Parent-Ef-
fectiveness-Training class offered
by Jewish Family Service and the
Jewish Community Center to
learn ways of helping all the chil-
dren express their feelings and
learn to solve their own problems.
As they stepped in more quick-
ly and established limits with
Stevie, the older daughter was
able to relinquish some of the
parenting habits she had de-
veloped. She also became much
less annoyed with her parents for
permitting her brother to get
away with stuff. The older boy
responded to hearing his brother
express feeling badly because he
didn't feel he was liked by the
family he tried harder to be
friends. As Stevie shaped up it
was easier for them to play with
each other.
The school and family both ex-
pressed satisfaction with the
progress made and Stevie no
longer felt the only hope was "to
send him to military school."

another level, by his
ction and ordering of sub-
.8, Wiesel asks a modern ques-
n: "May one go too far in order
assure one's survival?" Wiesel
pdere the moral foundations of
lism, trying to decide if
sh power undermines Jewish
nanism. That is his prophetic
estion, the one we find so diffi-
t to face.
Viesel himself seems uncertain
[the answer. His mixture of
iqueror and king (Joshua and
ul) with prophets reflects his
ambivalence about the
legitimacy of violence in Juda-
ism. Crucially, though, the book
ends with Jonah, that man who is
prophet to the Gentiles outside
Israel, yet like Wiesel Jewish to
his core. Jonah becomes a model
for justifying a humanist life in
the Diaspora, a life Wiesel has
chosen for himself.
In several of the portraits,
Wiesel expresses a longing for
more biographical information
about his subjects, just as we
desire the same about Wiesel
himself. Ellen Stern's book is
valuable supplement to the auto-
biographical elements in Wiesel's
own work.
Elie Wiesel: Witness for Life
was written for younger readers
but is compelling for adults as
well. It is a well-written, chrono-
logical account of the facts of
Wiesel's life, balancing narrative
with brief selections from, and
capsule summations of his work.
The honesty with which
Wiesel's youthful crisis of faith is
dealt with is especially praise-
worthy. That painful section pro-
vides young readers the opportu-
nity to test their own values as
they watch Elie Wiesel test his.

has joined in an interfaith appeal
for Lebanese relief jointly
sponsored by the Catholic Relief
Service, Church World Service

The Interfaith Hunger Appeal,
the agency coordinating the
three-faith ecumenical campaign,
was established by the three
agencies in response to world
hunger. It has previously cam-
paigned in behalf of Cambodian
refugees in Thailand and in other
cases of emergencies requiring
humanitarian response.
The Appeal funds the pro-

Meanwhile, Cranston led a
successful effort to have the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, of which he is a member,
provide economic aid to Israel
which would be equal to the in-
terest and principal Israel pays to
the U.S. each year on tax debts.
This could total $910 million in
the 1983 fiscal year, 1126 million
more than the Administration
has requested.
Cranston told the Committee
that "Israel can't keep pace"
with the arms purchases made by
the Arab countries. The Commit-
