Cofman, the Center's executive
The Center is. in a sense, a
sister to the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale. Besides
iiiihsissning the Center with the
fund* raised during its annual
United Jewish Appeal campaign,
the Federation also lends its
moral support to the JCC.
The Federation publicizes the
many services and programs of-
fered at the JCC as well as en-
courages the Jewish community
to become involved in JCC life.
"Jewish identity must be
preserved and enhanced," accor-
ding to JCC president Alvin Cspp,
"We mast encourage those ac-
tivities offered by JCC's and other
Jewish-oriented organisations or
else oar own Jewish culture and
heritage will one day be lost"
The JCC serves children ss
young as one through senior
adults as young ss 91. With a
strong focus upon Jewish theme
and content, the Center is struc-
tured into service areas according
to age and special interest groups.
The Center offers
chases,programs, support groups,
volunteer services, sports, trips
and entertainment in its Early
Childhhood, Elementary and
Family Programs, After-School

Kirkpatrick decries Arab-led efforts at
UN to brand Israel a 'Pariah Nation'
The media's apparent
sympathy for Shi'ite ter-
rorists during the recent
hostage crisis has
strengthened efforts to
brand the United States and
Israel as scapegoats by
those who "seek to make
legitimate what is il-
legitimate," Jeane J.
Kirkpatrick, former U.S.
Ambassador to the U.N.,
said recently in an address
at Tel Aviv University's Jaf-
fee Center for Strategic
Ambassador Kirkpatrick's
remarks came in the midst of a
seven-day visit to Israel, coor-
dinated by the Harry Walker lec-
ture bureau of New York, during
which she delivered a personal
message from Secretary of State
Shultz to Israeli Prime Minister
Shimon Peres and met with key
government officials and former
Prime Minister Menachem Begin.

The former U.S. envoy to the
U.N. also met with Tel Aviv
University officials to discuss
plans for the Jeane J. Kirkpatrick
Institute for Public Leadership

earlier this year when Mrs.
Kirkpartrick accepted an
honorary PhD from Tel Aviv
University at an academic con-
vocation in New York, will train

A look at
Jewish Education
Israel having success in strenthening
relations with Third World countries
Israel has "had quite a lot of
success" in its efforts to
strengthen relations with
Third World countries, par-
ticularly Black African
states, most of which broke
diplomatic ties with Israel
after the 1973 Yom Kippur
War and have not yet
restored them, David Kim-
che, Director General of the
Foreign Ministry, told
"We are in a position to talk to
the heads of at least 12-15 African
states whenever we wish. We are
in a position to talk about intimate
things. We have close relations
even if there are not direct
diplomatic relations," Kimche
said. He also observed that
Israel's trade with many African
states is flourishing, in many
cases much more so than in the
days Israel had full diplomatic
relations with them.
According to Kimche. who has
devoted considerable time and ef-
fort to improve relation with
Asian and African nations, many
Black African leaders privately
merend their regrets that their
countries broke with Israel 15
years ago. But they are deterred
from resuming formal ties for fear
of losing promised or actual aid
from Arab countries.
In many cases, Arab promises
have "far outstripped" the actual
aid received, Kimche said. But
some African leaders admitted to
him. in their frequent but un-
pubucised meetings, that they
feared subversion by the Palestine
Liberation Organization and by
Libya. "One African President
with whom I met not long ago,
said to me: 'You know why I am so
hesitant to reestablish relations? I
don't want to be assassinated.' "
Kimche added. "Libyan subver

alarm that many reporters seem-
ed to take the position that the hi-
jacking was really Israel's fault.
This attitude produced feelings,
both in the U.S. and Israel that,
despite the brutal victimization of
the hostages actions she brand-
ed as "violating the most basic
moral values of Western civiliza-
tion one ought nevertheless to
try to understand the terrorists'
point of view," she said.
v Dr. Kirkpatrick also termed the
"victimization of Israel inside the
United Nations" as another clear
example of the effort "to make
legitimate the illegitimate use of
violence against Israel in the
name of various kinds of higher
Noting that both her first and
last acts at the U.N. had been to
defend Israel against what she
termed "totally unfair and un-
balanced" Security Council
resolutions against her, Mrs.
Kirkpatrick said: "I learned that
at the U.N. Israel is always guilty,
and that Israel, unlike other
governments, has no right to self-
Isolating Israel
These resolutions, she sug-
gested, represent an effort by a
coalition of Moslem Communist
and Third World states to "isolate
Israel diplomatically,
economically, militarily and
technically in order to make
Israel a total pariah state."
Noting that this coalition had
sought unsuccessfully to expel
Israel from the U.N, by defining it
as "not a peaceloving state," and
as a "settler state," Mrs.
Kirkpatrick commented:
"Israel is subjected to the
wildest and falsest charges at the
U.N. and is systematically
discrinated against within that
body. It is clear that the efforts
against Israel at the U.N. aim at

Federation's Interfaith Council changes
name to expand role as 'caregivers'
"Our role in the communi-
ty has expanded so, that we
had to change our name to
reflect our added respon-
sibilities and services,"
stated Sandy Friedland,
Federation's coordinator of
Elderly Services and liaison
to the Federation's newly-
named 'Interfaith
Caregivers Coalition.'
Formerly called the 'Interfaith
Council,' consisting mainly of
members of the clergy, the new
group was established to include
clergy members as well as
volunteers, mental health and
aging-care professionals in the
schools and in government.
"Our main purpose this year is
to form caregivers and communi-
ty clusters amongst the various
community congregations,
synagogues and churches alike,"
stated Rev. Donald Bautz, chair-
man of the Council, representing
Specialized Urban Ministries and
acting as AARP Religious liaison.
The caregivers and cluster
groups will give respite care to
those persons suffering from
Alzeimere and related diseases
and to the chronically ill.
They will also provide 'Friendly
Visitors' for the homebound and
institutionalized, along with sup-
port groups for the terminally ill.
"We will help the congregations
sensitize and train their members
to the needs of those congregants
in need," stated Rabbi Albert B.
Schwartz, Federation's director
of Chaplaincy Services and
Federation's Council liaison.
"We have a unique mandate to
reach both the professionals and
volunteers of the religious com-
munity. By bringing the religious
community into direct contact
with staff of Florida International
University and professional
caregivers, we enable them to
enrich the lives of their con-
gregants," added Schwartz.
Max Rothman, director of
Florida International University's
Southeast Florida Center on Ag-
ing, expressed his delight at pro-
viding the University's expertise
for this much needed project.
The following organizations will
be invited to serve on the 'Inter-
faith Caregivers Coalition':
Jewish Family Service, Catholic
Community Service, Specialized
Urban Ministries, Broward Coun-
ty Clergy Council, Clergy
Dialogue, National Conference of

"The Center offers a multitude
of programming for people of all
ages," stated Surowitz. "From
our popular Early Childhood pro-
gram to our programs for seniors,
the Center is truly a focal point of

Karen Tunick, JCC's camp
director, spoke about the very
popular camp program offered at
the Center. "Our camp boasts an
attendance of approximately 500
youngsters, ranging from pre-
schoolers to high schoolers. We
also offer the older kids in the
community a chance to be CIT's

to gain the responsibility of
holding a job and working with
people. For some, it's their first
crack at work, and they respond
well to it. The campers and

Another 'New' Arafat?
The notion of introducing
the Palestine Liberation
Organization into Middle
East negotiations has re-
surfaced recently with the
agreement between Jor-
dan's King Hussein and the
PLO* Yasser Arafat. Once
again one hears that a new,
moderate PLO has emerg-
ed, that peace cannot be
achieved without the PLO,
that the time is ripe for the
United States and Israel to
recognise the organization.
While a flurry of
diplomacy moves through
the Middle East, and a feel-
ing exists that change is in
the air, the reality is that, in
essence, the PLO has not
changed and is today as in-
appropriate a candidate for
a role at a peace table as it
ever has been.
Doabletalk Aboit UN
Ymmt Arafat baa learned well
the art of obfuscation in order to
impress the West with his
"moderation" while holding dear-
ly to his extremism and rejec-
tionism within Palestinian circles.
His latest effort, the agreement
with Hussein, talks of accepting
UN resolutions on the Palestine
question, leaving Westerners,
eager to believe in Arafat the
peacemaker, to interpret this as
an acceptance of UN Resolutions
242 and. with it, the State of
A reading of all UN resolutions
on Palestine, however, gives s
very different picture. A slew of
these resolutions, including the in-
famous charge of November 1975
that Zionism is racism, deny the
legitimacy of the State of Israel
and of its guiding Zionist
philosophy. These resolutions of
the last decade, the product of
Soviet-Arab domination of much
of the UN machinery, suit
Arafat's long-standing rejection
of Israel and, in his mind, as
reflected in many statements over
the years, supersede Resolution
242. Indeed when specifically ask-
ed whether his agreement with
Hussein meant that 242 was now
acceptable, Arafat refused to
answer. Other PLO leaders -
even within Arafat's own Fatah
have declared explicitly that 242
remains unacceptable, after the
agreement as before.
The basic posture of the PLO
toward the State of Israel remains
the same. Israel has no right to ex-
ist, the Jewish ties to the land are
BOt legitimate, and the future of
the country should be determined
by the PLO. What has continually
changed for the PLO has been the
way it deals with its dilemma of
maintaining its rejectionism while
also encouraging Western in-
terest in PLO as a partner to
negotiations. With his defeat in
Lebanon, first at the hands of the
Israels, later by the Syrians,
Arafat found himself in a much
weaker position, fearful that he
would no longer be taken serious-
ly and that Hussein or other
Palestinians might come forth to
negotiate with Israel. To forestall
such a development, Arafat for-
mulated an agreement with Hus-
sein which makes no real conces-
sions but which once again
arouses Western hopes of "a new
Arafat" as a peacemaker.
What to Peacemaker?
Let's be clear what a real
peacemaker is. Anwar Sadat was
the only one in the Arab world vis-
a-vis Israel. His journey to peace
was characterized by an une-
quivocal recognition of Israel
its legitimacy and its right to
security and by his willingness
to enter negotiations with Israel
without preconditions.
Arafat and the PLO are
nowhere near these positions and
do not seem capable or willing to
move toward them. The National
Covenant of the PLO. its govern
ing document, continues to focus
on Israel's destruction. The PLO's
version of negotiations is an inter-
national conference at Geneva
(already tried in the early 1970's)
with the Soviets, the Syrians, the
PLO and others ganging up on
Israel. The purpose of such a con-
ference is clear: to isolate Israel,
to put pressure on the United
States to distance itself from
Israel, and to keep the area in tur-
moil. When Sadat opted for a real
peace rather than a propaganda
circus, he rejected Geneva for
direct negotiations with

All this renewed talk about a
A taxing proposition.

Tax reform is like motherhood, apple pie and the American flag
nobody is against it.
That's especially true on April 15 each year. Having recently
gone through the annual rite of giving our money to Uncle Sam,
proposals for tax reform sound especially good.
The Reagan administration will soon be sending to Congress its
plan for tax reform. Congress will then consider the plan and
make its decision. We take no position on the proposal in general.
There is, however, one specific element said to be a part of the
Treasury Department package that is very much of concern.
The object of the Treasury' plan is to make tax rates lower by
making the tax system simple. It would do that by eliminating or
sharply curtailing tax deductions, including the deduction for
charitable contributions. That is something that could have
serious and damaging consequences for the Jewish community.
The Treasury plan recommends these intended undercuttings:
1) Contributions could only be deducted to the extent they ex-
ceed 2 pecent of the taxpayers adjusted gross income. At present,
there is no minimum base.
2) Deductions for gifts of appreciated property would be limited
to actual costs plus a factor for inflation or to actual market value,
whichever is less. Currently the market value can be deducted.
8) The charitable deduction for non-itemixers would be allowed
to expire as currently scheduled. Since 1982, taxpayers who do
not otherwise itemize their deductions have been allowed to
deduct part of their contributions up to s limit. This was passed by
Congress to help spread the base of giving and to increase total
contributions, particularly by persons of modest means.
Virtually every Jewish institution is dependent on and survives
as a result of contributions from members of the community.
While there are as many reasons people give as there are people,
and while the notion of Tzedaka has s valued place in Jewish
tradition, studies have shown that the level of giving is affected
by the fact that charitable contributions are deductible from
federal income taxes.
And where does that charitable money go? In the case of
Federation/UJA, it goes to help Jewish communities in 80 coun-
tries around the world, to Israel, to help resettle Ethiopian Jews,
to help in Greater Fort Lauderdale. It goes for Jewish education,
for the Jewish elderly, for any Jew in seed anywhere.
But this is not solely s Jewish issue. There are more than 600
national charitable organizations in the United States Jewish,
Protestant, Catholic and other non-profit groups, all dependent
on contributions. Groups like the Red Cross, the United Way, the
Salvation Army, the Urban League.
A study conducted for s coalition of all these groups shows that
the Treasury's plan would bring a reduction of 28 percent in the
level of cash-giving to charity, s 38 percent decline in gifts of
securities and other property and an overall decline of about .36
rrcent in charitable contributions by non-itemizers who current-
. provide 70 percent of all individual gifts.
What this would mean is all too painfully obvious. All non-profit
organizations, including Jewish organizations, would be forced to
cut back on services, meaning those in need would have to do
without. And this, at a time when federal cutbacks have already
affected social welfare programs, forcing charitable organizations
to increase not diminish their efforts to raise money to con-
tinue to provide basic human care services.
In all the talk about tax reform, it's important to remember that
charitable deductions are not s tax loophole as are some other
deductions; that it is the only deduction which encourages the tax-
payer to give assets to the public benefit, that giving represents
voluntary private contributions for the public good something
the President has frequently encouraged.
In fact, the recommended changes contradict the basic purpose
of the deduction, which is to foster private giving for public pur-
poses. The deduction of charitable guts has provided s significant
incentive for increased giving. Even more important, it has serv-
ed to remind all of us and our government to foster private giving
for the public good. These direct and in direct encouragements
have helped to sustain the enormous outpouring of citizen par-
ticipation that is among the country's most important and distinc-
tive characteristics. Americans do not like to leave the pursuit of
public purpose to government alone.
All that makes charitable contributions special and unique and
is why they should be encouraged by the government and not
undermined by it

Ipreparing for the Days of Awe:

Ue days of Awe, Rosh
feana and Yom Kippur,
K unlike any of the other
ajor Jewish festivals. They
o not originate in the na-
toal history of the Jewish
0ple nor do they reflect
v aspect of the land of
wl. Rather they focus on
. cosmic issues of God as

[High Holidays is that of judg
at, and the dominant metaphor
at of a trial Man stands on
j literally for life itself, sustain-
ionly by the profound faith that
own fate lies in the compassion
i mercy of the Almighty.
Every trial requires self
preparation. Accordingly, built in-
to the Jewish calendar is an entire
month, that of Elul. whose very
essence is spiritual readiness for
the days of Awe. Each morning
during the month, at the daily
synagogue service, the shofar is
sounded. The strange, almost
eerie sounds of the shofar are
designed to arouse in each one's
heart the overwhelming necessity
to examine and mend one's deeds.
The long, straight blast of the
shofar signifies the coronation of
God as Ruler of the Universe,
source of majesty and justice. The
shrill, quavering notes reflect fear
and trembling at the coming judg-
ment and a plea for mercy and
During Elul it is customary to
engage especially in acts of contri-
tion, in the giving of tzedakah and
in deeds of loving kindness. Each
Jew is to regard his life during the
year as equally balanced between
righteous and wicked acts. In-
deed, even the entire world is con-
sidered to be suspended in the
same spiritual equilibrium. Each
righteous act, according to our
Sages, tips the scales both of the
individual and the entire world
and "causes deliverance and
redemption to himself and his
fellow man."
Even the individual haftarot
that are read on the Sabbaths of
the month of Elul reflect the
theme of judgment. These pro-
phetical portions are part of a
series called "The Seven Portions
of Comfort," each one of which
describes the future redemption
of the Jewish people, of the land of
Israel, and of the holy city of
Jerusalem. It is the dialectk
nature of Jewish law and emotion
that as the feelings of awe and
reverence before God's judgment
increase, so do the prophetic pro-
mises of God's love, forgiveness
and mercy.
In the week before Rosh
Hashanah, the feelings of fear and
trembling grow more intense. At
midnight on the Saturday night
preceding the New Year, prayers
of forgiveness, the Selichot are
chanted in a haunting melody.
They orchestrate the themes of

Finally, as the day of Rosh
Hashana actually draws near,
there is a surprising sense of joy
and exultation mingled with the
awe and anxiety. Indeed it is a
special mitzvah to enter the Holi-
day with festivity. With profound
faith in the beneficence of the
Almighty, joined to the equally
profound examination of one's
deeds and resolve to amend one's
ways, the Jew calls out in hope
and confidence, "May You be

Israel's Foreign Minister
and Vice Prime Minister,
Yitzhak Shamir, expects
Shi'ite Moslem violence to
diminish in Lebanon and
does not see a monolithic
Shi'ite threat in the Middle
East, but he insists that ter-
rorism continues to be the
recent issue of the French
magazine, Le Figaro,
Shamir repeated his view-
that Arafat's moderation is
a mirage.
"Arafat has no choke. He has
lost his military base in Lebanon."
Shamir asserted. "Terrorism is
his permanent strategy, like Trot-
sky's permanent revolution. If the
PLO does not continue to stage
terrorist attacks. Arafat will lose
his popular support," the Foreign
Minister added.
"What is strange is that he is
even supported by King Hussein,
his worst enemy, and by (Presi-
dent) Mubarak, who does not
want Fatah (the largest of the
PLO's constituent groups and
Arafat's own faction) in Egypt,"
Shamir sees danger in the por-
trayal by some U.S. officials and
European countries of a new,
moderate Arafat. "The PLO's
present tactics are to have a good
image to secure recognition, and
then to obtain a Palestinian (Arab)
state on the West Bank, in other
words, a military base which
would be less than three

Israel opens ties with Soviets
Premier Shimon Peres said
that "Israel was seriously
interested in reopening
diplomatic relations with
the Soviet Union" and in-
dicated that the new Soviet
leadership, under Mikhail
Gorbachev, could open the
way for "a dialogue on all
subjects with the Russians."
Peres made his remarks to
Edgar Bronfman, president of the
World Jewish Congress, during a
meeting with members of the
WJC Executive. "The Russians
were never our enemies," he said.
Moscow broke diplomatic rela-
tions with Israel during the 1967
Six-Day War.
"With Gorbachev coming to
power there could be a new oppor-
tunity we shouldn't overlook. We
should attempt to reach a dialogue
on all subjects with the Russians,"
Peres said. He praised "the most
important job" the WJC is at-
tempting on behalf of Soviet
Jewry and for the Jewish life
behind the Iron Curtain.
Bronfman suggested that "The
Prime Minister's words are cer-
tain to have a salutory effect in
moderating East-West tensions.
Such a reduction in tension and
renewed dialogue between the
superpowers would be good for
both East and West as well as
Israel and the Jews," he added.
Peres announced after the
meeting an agreement to set up a
monthly satellite television hook-
up to provide live exchanges bet-
ween himself and diaspora Jewish
leaders at Bronfman's office in
New York.

Nairobi Women's Conference
unity government's "rotation" ar-
rangement 14 months from now,
doubts that Arafat would agree
"to play second fiddle" to King
Hussein in a West Bank and Gaza
Strip confederation with Jordan.
Referring to Hussein's war with
the PLO in "Black September" 15
years ago, Shamir said "there
may be Europeans and Americans
who are naive enough to hope for
the creation of this confederation.
But it should not be thought that
Israel can accept this solution."
According to the Foreign
Minister, the PLO's original goal
"to wipe Israel from the map"
remains unchanged. The
organization's desire "to
dominate the region," illustrated
by its previous brutal behavior in
Beirut and southern Lebanon, ex-
plains why the Shi'ite Amal
militiamen "no longer want them
in Lebanon and are massacring
them mercilessly in the refugee
camps. .."
Pointing to Syrian influence
over all the "small groups" in
Lebanon and the secular nature of
the Syrian Ba'athist party regime,
Shamir said. "I do net believe ins
specifically Shi'ite terrorism. He
said Lebanon's underpriviledged
Shi'ites "want to play a political
role" and their violence is a
Klitical expression. "When they
ve obtained a degree of power
their aggressiveness will
automatically fade."
Although Lebanese Shi'ite
followers of Iran's Ayatollah Kho-
meini want to establish an Islamic
republic, "there are fundamen-
talists everywhere, in the (Per-
sian) Gulf and in Egypt. This is
not new. I do not think we are fac-
ing a big international move-
ment .The Shi'ites are divided
like all the Arabs." He noted that
the Iraqi Shi'ite majority (under
Sunni leadership) is "putting up a
magnificent fight" against their
Iranian Shi'ite enemies.

PtgtB TVJewihFloridino(Gr>^FortUu The Israeli viewpoint
The campaign against Israel, in
a grim parody of other beliefs, ap-
pears to have its ritualistic obser-
vances that must be respected.
The most recent example of
Israel-baiting comes wrapped in
the cloak of the anti-Apartheid
movement. The melancholy result
is that the very people who are
guilty of the worst abuses of
human rights have hijacked a
movement of great moral
significance and distorted it
beyond recognition. They have
thus alientated people of good will
who would otherwise support this
For instead of dwelling upon the
evils of enforced racial separation,
or on practical ways to alleviate
the humiliation and pain of Apar-
theid, the focus of some is regret
tabiy on an entirely different
point that Israel is the wellspr-
ing of Apartheid, the mighty em-
pire that sustains it from afar and
deserves to be punished.
All this Israel-baiting is by now
for familiar that no doubt many
can barely supress a yawn. But
this would be a mistake. What is
at issue here is not Israel, which
will not be affected by what is
said, but the cause of the anti-
Apartheid movement; it may in-
deed suffer if yet again those who
have no real interest in it are per-
mitted to abuse it for their own
malevolent ends.
I Let it first be said that Israel
I categorically condemns racism in
I all its forms, including Apartheid.
We are a people who have suf-
fered more from racism,
murderous racism, than any
i other. This is why the founder of
| modem Zionism, Theodor Herri.
wrote that after liberating the
Jews from the evil of racism he
would strive to liberate the
opresaed blacks. And this is why
the state that was founded in his
1 vision, Israel, has repeatedly ex-
pressed its revulsion of and op-
position to Apartheid, both in
world forums and directly to the
Government of South Africa.
And let is also be noted that
those leading the pack against us
include the Soviet Union and cer-
tain Arab states. Now whatever
the internationalist rhetoric of the
Soviet Union, it is a country
whose regime brutally suppresses
the language, culture, and
slightest expression of nationalist
aspirations of its many minorities.
This is not Apartheid, but it is the
suppression of one people by
another, the subjugation of all the
non-Russians by the Russians
throughout the Soviet empire.
And what about the Arab coun-
tries that incessantly proclaim
their lack of racism? Their record
is worth examining. Who was it
that first began the extensive
slave trade in Black Africa,
leading to untold suffering and
deaths over centuries? And what
shall we say of those Arab coun-
tries that well into this century
and indeed, according to the
Anti-Slavery Society of London.
design to officially abolish
slavery only in 1962. There are
reports that to this very day, in
the interior of the Arabina penin-
sula, slavery or something very
much like it continues to exist
As to the accusation of Israel's
extensive trade with South
Africa, the facts of the matter are
well known, even to perhaps
especially to our accusers.
Israel's trade with South Africa,
like its trade with other countries,
does not imply a blanket endorse-
ment of that country's policies.
Else the United States would be
taken to endorse the policies of
the Soviet Union, the Soviet
Union those of West Germany,
Britain those of Libya, and so on.
What should at once strike a fair-
minded observer is that Israel is
being singled out in a ludicrous
fashion. For Israel's trade with
South Africa is so modest as to be
scarcely visible, amounting (accor-
ding to IMF figures) to less than
Vt of one percent of exports and H*
of one percent of imports. Nearly
20 countries trade more exten-
sively with the Union of South

The impact of Israel is
documented for each country, but
most sahently described for the
Soviet Union. Details are given
about the response of Russian
Jews to Israef'a birth, to their
warm reception for Golds Meir,
Israel's first ambassador to the
Soviet Union and to the Six-Day
War. The Israeli embassy's suc-
cessful efforts to promote Jewish
identity by distributing Jewish
and Israeli material and by help-
ing to foster support for Jewish
emigration are described.
Sachar tells an interesting atory
of conflict between the Israeli of-
ficiala and some Russian Jewa
who wanted a public and activiat
effort to secure freedom for Rus-
sian Jews. The Israelis originally
wanted to be more circumspect
and to work through clandestine
negotiations. However, under the
leadership of Golds Meir, then the
Prime Minister, the Israelis
changed their position and sup-

JERUSALEM The government is planning to change the
Shekel by cutting off zeroes. Government sources indicated of-
ficially that this will be done at the end of the first three-month
phase of the economic program. Presumably the current 100 or
1,000 Shekel note will then become one new Shekel. The official
rate of exchange for the Shekel presently stands at 1,500 to $1.
This is a result of the July 1 devaluation.
TEL AVIV A poll published in Maariv showed that 56.6 per-
cent of the respondents were dissatisfied with the way the unity
coalition government is handling political affairs. But almost the
identical number, 56.6 percent, expressed satisfaction with the
way defense and security matters were being handled, according
to a poll taken by the Modi'in Ezrachi Institute.
UNITED NATIONS Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres

woes, a ray of cheer has arisen from the Negev. A group entitled
the Light Opera Group of the Negev (LOGON), is Israel's only
company presenting operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan, and its au-

production, in March 1985 of The Mikado has received critical ac-

Plan to honor Anne Frank
controversy over street
BONN (JTA) A controversy
is raging in the town of Bergen in
Lower Saxony over a proposal to
rename a street for Anne Frank,
the Dutch-born Jewish teenager
who perished in the nearby
Bergen-Belsen concentration
Supporters of the change,
among them local officials of the
opposition Social Democratic Par-
ty and the DGB trade union
organization, have been receiving
hate mail and anonymous
telephone calls, some threatening
physical harm.
Local leaders of the governing

vigorously oppose renaming

on grounds that the citizens of
Bergen are "fed up with being
saddled with guilt" over the
Guenther Ernst, a Democratic
Union official who publishes
Bergen's weekly newspaper, said
naming Bergen Street, which
leads to Bergen-Belsen, Anne
Frank Street would amount to a
"permanent presentation of the
horrors of the Holocaust," and
"we cannot reasonably expect the
inhabitants of this town to take
this. ... The inhabitants will not

In New York, Dr. Barnett
Zumoff, president of the
Workmen's Circle, called on
Chancellor Helmut Kohl to
repudiate efforts of officials of his
Christian Democratic Union to
frustrate renaming the street in
honor of Anne Frank. He called
on Kohl to "rectify this injustice
before another Bitburg situation
envelops those of us who seek

Songs featured
Jewish themes
and lifestyles
An expert on Irving Berlin, the
world-famous 97-year-old com-
poser of popular melodies, has
asserted that many Jews who
wonder about Berlin's Jewishness
may never have heard of some
less familiar works among his
1.200 published compositions.
The expert, Sol Kellerman, told
the Palm Beach Jewish World
that Berlin had written songs with
such titles as "Yiddisha Pro-
fessor," "Yiddiaha Eyes," "Yid-
disha Nightingale," and "Good-
bye Becky Cohen."
Kellerman discussed the songs
with Christian themes, three of
which are among Berlin's most
famous songs "God Mess
America," which is considered by
many Americans as a kind of unof-
ficial anthem, "White Christmas"
and "Easter Parade."
any explicit reference to
Zionism as a form of racism.
This was clearly a victory for
Israel and Western democracies
which had indicated that they
would not vote for or agree to any
document which included the for-
mula equating Zionism with
racism. It was also a victory in
contrast to the two previous UN
women's conferences, in Mexico
City and in Copenhagen, where
documents including the equation
were adopted, both in opposition
to Israel, the United States and
some Western countries.

Agreement on these basic issues
is reflected in a joint statement of
principles on the medical treat-
ment of handicapped newborn
children announced by the
Catholic and Jewish agencies
following a year of discussions
growing out of the "Baby Jane
Doe" controversy.
A commentary accompanying
the statement says that while
agreement on these basic prin-
ciples does not "unambiguously"
reflect every concern of the
Catholic or Jewish participants, it
does represent "a significant con-
sensus" on the medical ethics in-
volved as well as the rights of in-
dividuals with disabilities. The
commentary was signed by
Reverend Edward M. Bryce,
Director of the NCCB Office for
Pro-Life Activities, and Dr.
Michael Wyschogrod, Director of
the Institute for Jewish-Christian
Relations of the American Jewish
Congress and Chairman of the

TALLAHASSEE Minor corrections to the state's much-
maligned, year-old "master teacher" program won the approval
of Gov. Bob Graham and the Cabinet Thursday. But they said
they still want further changes to assuage heavy criticism from
lawmakers and teachers' unions.
The corrections made Aug. 8 deal primarily with the way public-
school teachers must apply for designation as master teachers,
which can lead to $3,000 pay bonuses.
Among other things, Department of Education officials said,
the five application forms that teachers called confusing have
been reduced to a single, simplified form.
A spokesman for one statewide teachers' union called that the
equivalent of "moving the deck chairs around on the Titanic,"
suggesting the written tests and classsroom evaluations of
teachers who apply for master teacher status are still fatally

Exercise for extra zest
If you want to lose weight quickly, the only safe, effective
answer is to engage in some form of exercise. Every time you
burn 3,500 calories in biking, swimming, walking or housework,
you lose one pound of fat not protein or minerals, as with quick
weight loss diets. The more vigorous the exercise, the more
weight you lose quickly. So get started now choose a form of
exercise from the chart below, and then stick with it! (Sleeping
and watching TV are listed for reference only, and as you'll see,
they won't burn off very many calories.)

who are shipwrecked on an island
