Arena: 'Israel Lives and Survives Because It Is Strong*
To arrive at security in the Middle East
(Israel) have to be strong. Israel lives and
,_rvives because it is strong, and the Arab
rorld does not have the military option to
' about the liquidation of Israel."
So commented Moshe Arena, Israeli Ambassador to
[he United States, during his talks last week in South
Florida.
e said that many Americans have a "certain
,jvete about the Middle East and tend to propose
olutions that ignore the reality of the area. What many
Americans tend to ignore, be said, is that the Middle
st has a history of "belligerence, fanaticism and
jnoil. He said Americans were "well-intentioned"
ut failed to realize Israel was constantly vulnerable.
This fact was pointed up again last week when five of
radical factions of the Palestinian Liberation
janization (PLO) once again vowed its deter-
nation to destroy Israel.
Ambassador Arena stressed the fact that Operation
Peace for Galilee was an act of defense, placing the
blame for Lebanon's plight on the PLO which "in total
disregard for the government of Lebanon" had turned
that nation into a "center of international terrorism"
since 1970.
Lebanon, he said, had been a battleground for seven
years with 100,000 people killed there during that time
and that southern Lebanon had become a "mini-state"
for the PLO firing rockets and artillery on northern
Israel where children, for years, had to sleep in under-
ground concrete bunkers because of the constant shell
ing.
"Today," Arena declared, "Nobody is going down in
the shelters anymore. Life is normal in the northern
portion of Israel."
So much so that the talks between Israel, Lebanon
and the U.S. continue once a week in Kiryat Shemona
which had been the target for hundreds of PLO shells
and rockets.

"Some day, with the aid of
Imerican Jewry, as well as
lorldwide Jewry, I dream that I
pall see the State of Israel
pjoying the same standard of
ving as we do in this country,"
declared Maxine Schwartz in

Luncheon, a minimum contribu-
tion of $1,000 to the UJA
campaign was required. By the
time the Masada campaign ends,
the women expect a total of more

Mrs. Schwartz, president of
the Women's Division of the
Greater Miami Jewish Federa-
tion was speaking in place of
Norman Braman, originally
scheduled to give the women a
Middle East up-date.
Mrs. Schwartz, a trustee of
Miami's Temple S>nait_ and
recipient of the Stanley C. Myers
President's Leadership Award,
more than made up for Braman's
absence with highly informative,
articulate enunciation of the
needs that have to be met in Is-
rael by America's women.

expressed their pleasure for the
generous response to the com-
mitments made by the women in
support of Israel. Felice Sincoff,

Tu-B'Shevat has become a

oversees the planting of trees in
Israel. It is also a fine way to re-

be a special tree planting by the

Lou Colker, chairman of the
Tu-B'Shevat program for the
Jewish National Fund in Fort
Lauderdale, said, "Members of
the board (JNF) and staff have

Israeli-Syrian Partnership?
But all this is from the Israeli point of
view. In what sense do the others not trust
the Israelis? One obviously is that the
Israelis are insisting upon the exit first of
the Palestinians, followed by the Syrians,
after which the Israelis themselves say
they will depart.
Another is Israel's call for Early Warn-
ing Systems to be set up in southern
Lebanon and the exclusion of UNIFIL
forces within the 25-mile area north of the
Israeli-Lebanese border.
This is a demand that suggests especial-
ly to the Arabs that Israel has secret ambi-
tions for a chunk of Lebanese territory.
Both together were the substance of the
bruhaha surrounding the early stages of
the negotiations which the Lebanese found
absolutely unacceptable.
In the face of all of this suspicion, do the
talks as they now shape up seem destined
for success? Hardly, for new rumors seem
to be brewing of the most impossible
alliance of all.
Monday, the Israelis found it necessary
to deny reports that they have arrived at a
secret agreement with the Syrians no less,
an agreement establishing spheres of in-
fluence in Lebanon for each.
Why not such a rumor? It establishes for
the Arabs the credibility of their belief that
the Israelis have wanted a chunk of
Lebanon from the beginning. In the end,
the negotiations hardly matter, since
events will take their turn in Lebanon in
the same way that they took their turn in
Egypt following the Camp David accord.
Despite the talk to the contrary. Despite
the rumors.
Happy State of Affairs
In Dallas, Tex., the other week, there
was a real breakthrough in relations
between Jews and Christians. Site was a
conference bringing together seminary
students and faculty from major Catholic,
Protestant and Jewish institutions
throughout the nation.
By all accounts, the results were
phenomenal. It turned out that not one of
the Christian seminarians had ever talked
in any meaningful way with a Jew before -
a pretty dismal state of affairs for future
leaders of American Christendom.
By the end of the two-day seminar spon-
sored by the American Jewish Committee,
young Christian men and women testified
that this had been one of the moat
important religious experiences of their
lives. They were, they declared, now
determined to wash themselves clean of the
negative stereotypes they held about Jews
and Judaism.
They were, they asserted, now
determined to develop a positive apprecia-
tion of Judaism and the Jewish people. If
true, this is indeed a happy state of affairs.
The midterm elections and the new year have
prompted discussion in Washington about
whether the Administration should be "altering
the course.'' Most of the discussion centers on
domestic economic policy but the
Administration has opportunities for a mid-
course correction in the Middle East as well.
Israel's dispersal of the PLO and restoration of
Lebanese sovereignty benefitted the United
States. But despite this the Administration is
creating tensions by saddling Israel with sanc-
tions and delays in implementing bilateral
agreements:
Failure to notify Congress of intentions to sell
75 previously promised F-16's to Israel,
Refusal to agree to an exchange with Israel of
military data garnered in the Lebanon war.
Suspension of the Memorandum of Under-
standing (which, in effect, was suspended twice; a
planned renewal was shelved in June).
Delaying conclusion of an agreement per-
mitting Israel to spend U.S. aid credits within
Israel.
Delaying "offshore procurement," an
arrangement permitting the United States to buy
military goods in Israel.
Delaying permission for third countries to use
U.S. military sales credits for purchases in Israel.
These sanctions and deliberate delays never
made much sense from a foreign policy point of
view and they certainly make no sense now.
The Administration's method of dealing with
Jordan also contributes to the tension. Jordan is
the pivot of the peace process. Until King Hus-
sein recognizes Israel, peace will remain a renw. I
hope. ^**
It is time that the Administration recognaa
that coaxing, flattery, and blandishment have I
utterly failed to move Hussein to the peace ubul
The United States has more direct means of
dealing with his obdurateness. It should apply
them.
Hopes for Peace
Israel remains committed to peace. It has
attempted to achieve normalization with Lebi
and remains ready to enter negotiations with
Jordan.
The U.S., however, has consistently blocked
Israel's attempts to reach a peaceful ac-
commodation with Lebanon. The U.S. has ob-
structed a peace treaty and responded favorably.
to anti-Israel elements in the Lebanese polity.
M oreover, while coming down against a peict
treaty, the U.S. faded to respond to repeated
Israeli concessions for the sake of peace; Israel
did drop its goal of a peace treaty; it did dropfal
insistence that Jerusalem be one aite for the f
talks; it agreed to drop its demand that talks be
conducted at the ministerial level. None of this
has been acknowledged by the United States.
If peace and foreign withdrawal from
Lebanon is to be gained in the coming year |
United States must remain the ""pftM
mediator. Thwarting bilateral movement toward
peace will not advance American goals nor i
it promote greater regional understanding.
From Near East Report]
What
By GINNI WALSH
United Jewish Appeal
Special Correspondent
Ein Hilwe Refugee Camp,
Sidon. Lebanon Sometimes,
what you hear is jokingly dif-
ferent from what you expect. "No
matter what, we'll stop the Is-
raelis from leaving Lebanon.
We'll lie in front of their tanks if
we have to. We've lived in terror
of the PLO for years and now the
Israelis are protecting us. We're
petrified of what will happen if
they leave." Farik, a Palestinian
doctor in this refugee camp is al-
most aggressive with his words.
The
l
Standing in the partially-des-
troyed Palestinian camp, I
thought I was hearing things.
Farik s words were quite a shock.
Hostile media have portrayed Is-
raelis as ruthless conquerors and
heartless occupiers. But they are
seen, by the very people they're
supposed to be oppressing, as
literal saviors.
If Farik's words were a splash.
I was soon confronted with a tor-
rent of anti-PLO emotion from
Lebanese Christians, Moslems,
and Palestinians alike. The atti-
tudes were all the more remarka-
ble because the interviews took
place after the Phalangist killings
of Palestinian refugees in Beirut.
Achmad angrily spat as he
said, "I wont use the words that
describe the Arab countries.
They have put a black cloud on
Lebanon. They have been using
us since 1948, crying about us in
public for their own purposes.
But they've never done anything
to help us. They wont even give
us visas."
Not surprisingly, these Pales-
tinians never want to set foot in
another Arab country other than
Lebanon. Very surprisingly,
however, their first choice of resi-
dence is Israel. An Interna-
tional chorus of accusation has
been orchestrated over Israel's
alleged treatment of Palestinians.
The Palestinians themselves view
life under the Israeli rule as an
oasis of humanity in a wilderness
of violence and fear.
Farik was joined in a chorus of
agreement when he said. "Our
first choice would be to live as Is-
raeli citizens, our second choice
as Lebanese citizens, and our
third, citizens of any Western
country and never ... I repeat
never, as citizens of other Arab
countries, expecially a PLO
state."
As these people speak, a ques-
tion lingers in the back of my
thoughts: What could the PLO
have done to make their own peo-
ple say. "We never want to live
under a PLO government?" The
refugees do not hesitate to an-
swer the unasked question.
Farik painfully lowers his
voice. "My brother was killed by
the PLO. They swelled their
ranks out of fear, not loyalty. It
was simple really. The PLO
would come to your home to
"persuade" you to join or to hide
arms for them. If you said no,
soon afterward a daughter might
Ik raped or son is shot. The next
time they came to your home,
they wouldn't have to ask."
Hussein was quick to add.
"And there were many other
ways to get your cooperation.
You don't understand what it's
been like. They infected every-
thing. If they didn't like you, you
couldn't even get a job
whether that meant a job as a
doctor or a doorman. It was never
the best doorman who would get
the job. it was the doorman who
the PLO liked."
Who the PLO liked" have
Int-n haunting words for the
Palestinian refugees. Several
miles from the refugee camp
stand the remains of the Sidon
PLO headquarters. A generous
space in that headquarters was
reserved for people imprisoned by
the PLO. The dank, filthy cells
survived the bombing. An Israeli
Defense Forces officer responds
to an inquiry concerning the in-
fraction of the former prison oc-
cupants: "Oh they were people
the PLO didn't like."
He pointed to a small cell with
enough space for one man to
occupy in a bent position and
said. "This is where they'd go for
a week if they were really dis-
liked We found a couple of Is-
raeli Arabs in here who had come

PLO wanted the Israeli Arabs to

Mtsradiusting to the shock of,
in the Palestinian's words, "our'
appreciation to the Israelis it
was easK-r to comprehend the at-
titude of the Lebanese Christians
and Moslems.

The Jewish FloHdian of Greater Fort Lauderdale
1200 Hear Author Kushner Launch Midrasha Series
Page 5

A capacity crowd of more than
1 200 turned out on a rain-stormy
January night at Temple Beth
Israel in Sunrise to hear Rabbi
Harold S. Kushner, author of the
longtime best-selling book When
Bad Things Happen to Good
People, relate the events of the
personal tragedy that led to writ-
ing the book.
His talk was the first of four
lectures planned by the North
Broward Midrasha Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, its Central Agency
for Jewish Education and co-
sponsoring organizations.
(Second speaker in the series is

painful disease from the time of

his birth to his death at 14 years
of age in 1977, the author sprin-
kled his talk with whimsical com-
ments that brought chuckles and
laughter at times from his audi-
ence.
Before discussing the basic
premise of the book's title, be ex-
pressed his pleasure at meeting
people who knew him when he
served a congregation in Long
Brandeis to Honor
Leonard L. Farber

Island and those who know him
from Natick, Mass., where he is
rabbi of Temple Israel.
For those who came to hear
"Why do bad things happen to
good people?" Rabbi Kushner
said he had no answer. But he did
offer some consoling comments.
And these comments included
a suggestion for re-reading of the
Bible's Book of Job, and provid-
ing comfort by their presence to a
person who has suffered misfor-
tune, pointing out that the cus-
tom of shiva, with friends joining
relatives in mourning immediate-
ly after the death of a loved one is
a Jewish custom t'.iat is "truly a
sheer work of genius."
His hour-long dissertation was
followed by a. 30-minute session
of answering provocative ques-
tions from the audience, and then
for another 20 or more minutes he
was surrounded by persons seek-
ing autographs of his work and
for continued conversation with
him.

A bonus two months' free
membership is being offered to
those who join in February and
March. Current Center members
will receive a $5 JCC gift certifi-
cate for every new membership

By Kevin Freeman
NEW YORK (JTA) _
President Yitzhak Navon indi-
cated that Israel may consider
negotiating with the Palestine
Liberation Organization if the
PLO would change the article in
its covenant which calls for the
destruction of the Jewish State.
But until such action ia taken,
Navon said the consensus
opinion within Israel remains
that the PLO ia "an organization
of terror" with which Israel will
not conduct negotiations.
According to Navon, who ad-
dressed some 500 people at a
United Jewish Appeal luncheon
at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, Is-
rael would have to "take into
consideration" any change in the
PLO covenant. The some 33 arti-
cles of the PLO covenant call for
the "liberation of Palestine" and
the "elimination" of Zionism in
Palestine through "armed strug-
gle" and "revolution."
THE BULLS OF TEL AVIV
There's a saying on the Tel
Aviv Stock Exchange, where
confidence is high and brokers
tend to gloat: "In America, if
they can't keep the Dow Jones
over 1,000, why don't they just
give it to us? We'll push it over
3,000." Truly, it would seem that
if anyone can do it, the Israelis
can.
Their own stock exchange is
booming. Investor interest has
reached such a crescendo that
last year the exchange's stock in-
dex rose almost 300 percent. And
it was not an aberration. The
market has risen every year since
1976, pushing the total value of

its stocks from $66 million six
years ago to $20 billion at the end
of last year. The gains have
generated so much excitement
that a common practice among
Israelis, who pay no capital gains
taxes on stocks, is to put half
their monthly paychecks into the
market in hopes of beating the
country's 130 percent inflation
rate.
But such widespread specula-
tion almost a gambling-like
frenzy has created considera-
ble concern among exchange offi-
cials, major banks and even the
brokers who are profiting from
the business. In fact, one of Is-
rael's major newspapers recently
referred to the Tel Aviv Stock
Exchange as the country's Na-
tional Casino.
The prices of stocks have been
pushed so high so fast that many
are anticipating a major correc-
tion this year and are calling for
both stricter regulation and a
revaluation of the trading sys-
tem.

In The Springs of Jewish Life,
Chaim Raphael poses a question
which forces him to write a more
heartening, accessible book than
many other Jewish histories.
"Where do Jews get the will to
live, defying every attempt to
destroy them and, equally, every
seduction into safe anonymity
. How was the spirit that
comes out in the Jewish will to
live forged in antiquity and kept
alive today?" Those are issues
which make the book pertinent to
readers with a historical interest
and to those Americans who
wonder, even at idle moments,
why Jews continue to resist the
allurements of assimilation.
In a way, Raphael's is the
classic view of a diaspora Jew
proud of his heritage, skeptical of
exaggerated claims, worried by
the militarism that the responsi-
bility of statehood demands. For
example, instead of accepting the
Biblical story that Joshua simply
led a successful charge on
Jericho, he assumes that the
Jews entered the promised land
after using diplomatic means
such as making alliances with
other tribes, and through covert
actions such as infiltrating Israel
in order to place kinsmen there
who would make a common cause
with the invading army.
. Ezra the Scribe, who helped
end the Babylonian exile, who
helped make the synagogue the
center of Jewish life, is one of
Raphael's heroes. For Ezra was a
man of words, not arms; he
helped democratize and diffuse
the faith which, in Raphael's
view, brought so much pleasure
to so many people.
Like most Jewish historians,
Raphael grieves over the destruc-
tion of the Second Temple. But,
unlike many modern writers, his
heroes are not the zealots who de-
fended Masada. Instead, he
admires Eliazer ben Zaccai, who
got permission from the Roman
general Vespasian to found a
school at Javna "turning
Judaism from a nationalist revolt
into Jewish studies."
Raphael is enthralled with the
Torah and Talmud with the
code of peoplehood that kept
Jews alive throughout the
diaspora. For that reason, he sees
the recent fascination with the
military past as an outgrowth of
Israel's need to defend itself.
Similarly, he sees the spread of
Christianity as an unfortunate
accident a reflection of the
failure of Jewish diplomacy. If
the Jews had been more tacthil
with the Romans following 1
prouder version of Herod's diplo-
matic approach they would
have held on to Israel. Then,
Jesus's followers would have
remained a Jewish sect, not the
progenitors of a worldwide revol-
ution.
Of course, these are all con-
troversial ideas. That is
especially true because The
Springs of Jewish Life is 1
popular book, not a technical
one: it raises many more ques-
tions than it can answer. It
delineates fascinating fields
study. That is one of the things
that makes it a perfect gift for 1
curious bar mitzvah boy or for 1
grandparent who has just reac-
quainted himself with hit I
religion. It is a rare thing, a
heartwarming history book.
Israeli Research Findings Offer Hope
For Sickle-Cell Anemia Victims
REHOVOT, Israel The
50,000 American Blacks who
suffer from sickle-cell anemia
may soon find relief from this
painful, debilitating and lethal
genetic disease. A team of
scientists from Ghana, Israel,
and the United States, working
at Israel's Weizmann Institute of
Science here, has discovered a
new family of compounds that
may prevent or dramatically
reverse the onset of the ailment.

Eitan: Israel
Should Stay
Until War
Purposes Won
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Chief
of Staff Gen. Rafael Eitan said
that the Israeli army should
remain in Lebanon until Israel's
political aims are achieved. Ex-
plaining those aims, Israel's
military leader, who has fre-
quently been criticized by the op-
position parties for making
political statements, told high
school students in Eilat that the
war in Lebanon "was meant to
best Syria and the PLO to the
gun to attack them before they
began a war against us."
Eitan said that if Israel had
allowed them to take the
initiative. Israeli losses would
hava bean far heavier. "No
sovereign state can allow such a
thing to happen and it does
everything in its power to
protects its citizens," he said. He
stated that if the Syrians had not
requested a ceasefire, "not one of
them would havs been left alive

become distorted into the shape
of a sickle. As a result of this
deformity, the cells become
lodged in small blood vessels,
blocking circulation and the flow
of healthy red blood cells. This
blockage also leads to deteriora-
tion of healthy tissues and causes
severe pain in the joints.
The disease was first identified
in 1917, when scientists noted
that the sickling of red blood cells
mainly afflicted people of African
descent. In Equatorial Africa, up
to 40 percent of the population
has some form of disease. In the
U.S., it is believed that perhaps
as many as 20 percent of Ameri

anemia. Only two percent of
Black South Africans suffer from 1
the disease.
In 1973, the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology and the
Weizmann Institute of Science
joined forces in sickle-cell anemia
research. The project was under
taken by Dr. Marian Gorecki of
Weizmann s Department of
Organic Chemistry and M.I.T.'i
Dr. Alexander Rich, an early in-
vestigator into potential
chemotherapeutic agents for the
disease.

Sharon Claims Credit
For Agenda Agreement
ByHUGHORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) -
fense Minister Ariel
haron has claimed person-
credit for the agenda
ment just concluded
etween Israel and
Lebanon at their sixth
(round of talks at Kiryat
IShmona.
According to Sharon, all of the
provisions of the agreement,
Announced at an official press
conference held by the Israeli.
(Lebanese and American delega-
tions at Kiryat Shmona, were
(contained in a working paper he
(himself had drafted in weeks of
(secret negotiations with
(unidentified Lebanese officials.
HE ALSO credited the
("breakthrough" to the "stead-
(fastness" of the Israeli soldiers
(who were prepared in endure
| great hardships under difficult
(conditions in Lebanon. "Their
I steadfastness enabled the
politicans to reach a better agree
I mem." he said.
Sharon gave his version of
I events to reporters at a press
conference he called at Kiryat
Shmona at about the same time
I the official press conference was

Holds Night In Israel
underway. The Defense Minister
had been on an inspection tour of
Israel army positions in Lebanon.
He rushed to Kiryat Shmona
upon receiving news that the
deadlock over a negotiating
agenda had been broken.
"The agreement on the agenda
contains the main and most
essential details contained in the
working paper we discussed dur-
ing many weeks with Lebanese
government representatives,"
Sharon said.
HE CONCEDED that "There
are also other points raised by the
Lebanese, just as there are in any
negotiations." But he hailed
today's agreement as the first
step on the road to a true and
lasting peace in the Middle East.
Sharon was embarrassed
several weeks ago when he
returned from Beirut with a
document he described as an
agreement with the highest level
Lebanese authorities, affirming
Israel's terms. The Cabinet
endorsed the document, only to
discover that it had not been
signed by any Lebanese official.

Student Enjoys Volunteer Work
By MYRA BRESLERMAN
David Or bach, son of Robert
and Janice Orbach of Sunrise, is a
15 year old young man who
volunteers Considerable time to
the Central Agency for 'Jewish
Education of the Jewish 'Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
When David was asked why
volunteering his services for the
Jewish Federation was so impor-
tant, he replied: "Adults are abk-
to contribute their money. I have
no money to give therefore it
makes me feel good to be able to
donate my time."
David, after his busy schedule
at Piper High School, comes to
Federation office at least two
days a week. He is also a student
at Judaica High School on Tues-
day evenings. Judaica High is a
part of the educational program
df the Jewish Federation. He has
been gaining additional knowl-
edge about the heritage he is so
Mery proud of.
\ David's dream is to go to Israel
with the "Israeli Connection," a
group of 30 students chosen to
tour Israel for seven weeks
speaking about American schools
and Judaism. He learned last
Wednesday that he has been
accepted and will be leaving for
Israel soon.
He also belongs to the Akiva
Leadership group, a group of
David Orbach
outstanding students. It seeks to
train future leaders of the Jewish
community, and active com-
mitted young Jews who will be
involved in the life of the Jewish
community of Fort Lauderdale.
Among David's collection, he
has a book he treasures most
dearly. The Revolt, written by
Prime Minister Menachem
Begin. It was given to him by his
uncle Larry Orbach, a personal
friend of Prime Minister Begin,
who autographed it with an in-
scription to David. This was a
Bar Mitzvah gift he will treasure
always.

lily felt he was not meeting his

in the Hebrew Day School on
campus of the Jewish Com-
umty Center in Plantation.
^re he began to thrive and
iiw. making wonderful friends.
[About a year ago, a friend told
Vs. Friedman of what she

Rabbi Phillip Labowitz
assisting Corey

county, an orthopedic surgeon.
With great hope and a gleam in
their eyes, for the first time since
they were told about Corey's ill-
ness, they felt some hope. An ap-
pointment was made, and Corey
was given a complete examina-
tion. A promise was made by Dr.
Gurvey that he could have Corey
walking without any aids before
long.
Corey was operated on July 1.
In mid-September his cast came
off. Two weeks ago Corey threw
away what was the last of his
aids, a walker.
On Saturday evening, follow-
ing his exciting Bar Mitzvah

continued at the Woodmont
Country Club, with his sister

Archaeologist Says He Found
Oldest Reference to God

By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA)
A young Tel Aviv Uni-
versity archaeologist be-
lieves he has found the old-
est Hebrew reference to the
name of God in a treasure
trove of coins, amulets and
other ancient objects
yielded by an ar-
chaeological dig on a lull
facing Mt. Zion in Jeru-
salem.
Gabriel Barkay, who con-
ducted the excavations three
years ago, told a lecture audience
at the Rockefeller Museum here
that the nature of the discovery
was unravelled only last month
by a special technique applied in
the laboratory of the Israel Mu-
seum. The objects under study
were two pure silver Hebrew
prayer scrolls dating from the
Seventh Century BCE.
THE TEXTS were scratched
with a sharp instument and, ac-
cording to Barkay, extremely dif-
ficult to read. One of them con-
tained the Hebrew letters "yud,"
"hen," "vav," "heh," trans-
literated as Yaweh or Jehovah,
the name of God which pious
Jew8 are forbidden to write or
utter. Barkay would not identify
the other texts, save to say he
was still trying to decipher them.
He said he kept his research on
the objects more or less secret up
to now to avoid agitating ultra-
Orthodox Jews who might accuse
him of desecrating ancient Jew-
ish graves.
The excavations, alongside St.
Andrews Church above the Hin-
nom Valley, were described by
archaelogists as the most sensa-
tional" in 150 years ot digs in and
around Jerusalem.
THEY YIELDED the largest
amount of jewelry ever found at a
Jerusalem site and the oldest coin
ever found in the country a 6th
century BCE coin in the shape of
a crab from the Aegaean island of
Kos. Barkay said he found the
two silver prayer scrolls in an un-
derground tomb chamber filled
with gifts placed alongside the
bones of the deceased.
He explained that earlier He-
orew references to God's name
have not been found because they
were on papyrus or other perisha-
ble material. God's name would
not appear on stone inscriptions
because they were not tradi-
tionally religious texts, he said.
Court Upholds
Conviction Of

JERUSALEM-(JTA)-A
Jerusalem district court has up-
held the conviction of Samuel
Flatto-Sharon and ordered the
former independent MK to report

Tim Scientists To Share Wolf Prize For Physics
TEL AVIV The 100,000
Wolf Foundation prize for
physics for 1982 will be shared by
two scientists, born and trained
in New York City, who were
credited with discoveries of new
particles that changed concep-
tions of the structure of matter.
Prof. Leon M. Lederman,
director of the Fermi National
Accelerator Laboratory in
Batavia, 111., on leave from
Columbia University, discovered
a fifth quark, one of the hypo-
thetical components of which
protrons and other heavy suba-
tomic particles are thought to be
made.
Prof. Martin L. Perl of the
Stanford University Linear Ac-
celerator Center in California dis-
covered two new leptons, or light
subatomic particles related to the
electron.
The scholars will receive their
awards from President Yitzhak
Navon of Israel at a reception in
Parliament in May. Similar
awards of $100,000 will be distri-
buted for internationally recog-
nized achievements in agricul-
ture, medicine, chemistry,
mathematics and the arts.
The foundation was created by
Dr. Ricardo Wolf, a Cuban envoy
in Israel who remained in the
country after his tenure until his
death last year at the age of 93.
Of the 42 winners since the Wolf
Foundation prize was created in
1978, four later received Nobel
Prizes in medicine and physics.
Professor Lederman, who is 60
years old, was educated at the
City College of New York and
Columbia. Professor Perl, 55, is a
graduate of the Polytechnic In-
stitute of New York in Brooklyn
and Columbia.

Was Garden of Eden
Near Israeli Kibbutz
Called Afikim?

By DVORA WAYSMAN
The rather whimsical
story began in a British sci-
ence magazine called
"Nature." The headline
proclaimed, "Garden of
Eden may have been near
Afikim," which of course
caused ripples at this Israe-
li kibbutz in the Jordan
Valley. The report emanat-
ed from an article dealing
with the estimated age
700,000 years of fossils
and tools found at the near-
by excavated site of
Ubeidiya.
Kibbutz Afikim was quick to
quote reactions in its internal
newsletter, such as mothers knit-
ting fig leaves for their families;
bachelors requesting that no
apples be served in the dining-
room: warnings against poison-
ous snakes; and watchmen being
posted at the gates with flaming
swords and wings.
BUT ALL joking aside, what
do we really know about the Gar-
den of Eden? It is described with
great beauty in Genesis, as part
of the story of creation a gar-
den planted by the Lord and the
first dwelling place of Adam and
Eve. The name "Eden" is
Sumerian and means "plain." In
the Midrash HaGadol, it states,
"Eden is a unique place on earth,
but no creature is permitted to
know its exact location. In the
future, during the Messianic
period, God will reveal to Israel
the path to Eden. Just as
heaven is lined with rows of stars,
so the Garden of Eden is lined
with rows of the righteous who
shine like the stars."
There is much to learn from the
Biblical story, with regard to the
profound psychology of tempta-
tion and conscience. It shows the
beginning, the progress and the
culmination of temptation, and
the consequences of sin. It has
been written, "Every man who
knows his own heart knows that
the story is true; it is the story of
his own fall. Adam is man, and
his story is ours" (McFadyen).
Contrary to popular belief,
there is no difficulty in recon-
ciling the creation story with
Darwin's theory of evolution. It
really is unimportant if the
narrative is literal or figurative
Judaism admits that the Bible
belongs to "the secrets of the
Tonh" which must not be under-
stood literally.\
NOR IS there need for the
often conveys deep truths of life
and conduct by means of
allegory.
THE RABBIS often taught by
parables, and eminent Jewish
thinkers like Maimonides and
Nachmanides interpret this
chapter as a parable, with the
serpent and the personification of
man's sinful tendencies the
yeUerhara, the evil inclination.
According to the theory of
evolution, the long, slow climb
from the amoeba to man took
place over millions of years. In
the literal interpretation of
Genesis, all things were created
in six days, less than six thous-
and years ago, and man came
"from the dust of the earth."
Rabbi Israel Lipschutz (1782-
18f"), in his famed Mishnah
commentary "Tiferet Yisrael,"
relies on the Kabbalistic theory
that there are cycles of creation,
and the one described in Genesis
was not the first creation but the
beginning of a new cycle. The
dinosaurs and skeletons of
primitive men were the remains
of creatures from a previous
cycle.
More recently, Rabbi A. Kook
(1865-1935) declared that the
theory of evolution was in full ac-
cord with Kabbalah, with the
whole creation striving to express
itself in ever higher forms even-
tually leading to God. He main-
tained that there is no conflict
because the creation narrative

strength').
religious to worry that the theory
of evolution degrades man. Man
can feel humble (and humility is a
virtue) because his origins are
lowly. Yet at the same time he
can be proud of his uniqueness as
the culmination of evolution. ]
What Jews must remember,
even in the process of evolution,
is that God planned the creative
activity. God was responsible for
both the arrival and survival of
the species. A man of faith is not
prevented by new theories or
scientific discoveries from seeing
the hand of the Maker in all His
works.
The Garden of Eden led to dif-
ferent interpretations in Jewish
and Christian doctrine. The latter
subscribe to Original Sin, accom-
panied by vilification of Woman
as the author of death and all
earthly woes. Judaism rejects
this, believing man was always
mortal and death did not enter
the world through Eve's trans-
gression. "My God, the soul
which Thou hast given me is
pure" Jews pray every day.
INSTEAD OF the Fall of
we preach the Rise of Man,
age being capable of reaching
highest peaks of a moral
spiritual life. "There
generation without its AbraB
Moses or Samuel," says the
rash.
Whether Nature magazin
correctly identified the site
Garden of Eden or not,
kibbutzniks of Afikim hav
last word. They maintain:
always knew that we liv<
Paradise."
