"It is difficult to understand Prime Minister That-

have a 'face-to-face' dialogue with representatives of
an organization which engages even today in active
terror," Peres said at a recent Cabinet meeting.
Thatcher had previously met with King Hussein in

official.
President Amin Gemayel's Chief of Protocol, Marun
Haimari, said in a cable to Paris on Wednesday that

$598 Million Raised in 1985 UJA Campaign
NEW YORK (JTA) Alex Grass, national
chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, reporting
on the success of the 1985 UJA/Federated Com-
munity Campaigns, stated that $598 million had
been raised as of Aug. 28, compared to $533.5
million pledged by the same donors last year-
One People, One Destiny
This represented a 12.1 percent card-for-card in-
crease and a dollar gain of $64.5 million.
His reports were made to the UJA'si Board1 of
TrusteeHhe Board of Directors of the jJruted
Israel Appeal, the Council of Jewish F^Uons
and the Jewish Agency Executive meeting, all in
New York City.
Grass added that a total of $162.6 indium has
beeTrtised for Project Renewal induding $10
million pledged during the 'S^^W.N^
Renewal is the program specifically f *'^
aid distressed neighborhoods to Israel by linking
them to American communities.
The national chairman also announced that
Operation Moses, the special campaign to raise
money for the absorption of Ethiopian Jewry, has
raised $63.9 million, including pledges and com-
munity guarantees. Nineteen major and 29 in-
termediate communities have already achieved or
exceeded their goals in record time, Grass said.
Concerning total calendar year cash collections,
he reported that $237.1 million has been collected
as of Aug. 31, compared to $205.3 million at the
same time last year.
Reporting on 1986 Campaign highlights, which
began earlier this year, Grass described the re-
cent successful Major Gifts Invitational Mission
to Eastern Europe and Israel, under the leader-
ship of national vice chairman Alan Shulman. The
participants visited JDC operations in Warsaw,
Prague and Bucharest and met with members of
the remnant Jewish communities.
In Israel, they exchanged greetings with Presi-
dent Chaim Herzog and viewed Israel's miracles
in the Arava. Prime Minister Shimon Peres and
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin analyzed recent
Middle Eastern events, each from a different
perspective.
Pledges at the caucus came to $5.5 million, a
card-for-card increase of 23 percent over last
year's gifts by the same donors. Equally impor-

Jewish Federation Teaches Class on Cults
Teen-agers in North
Broward are learning the
affect cults have on young
boys and girls in our com-
munity when they attend
the Judaica High School
classes sponsored by the
Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale.
In a recent article published in
the Miami Herald. Maxine Ross, a
ninth grade teacher at Judaica
High School stated that. Love-
bombing is what a member of a
cult will use to win a teen's lovaltv
and get control." She was ad-
dressing a group of students at-
tending the classes at Temple
Beth Am in Margate, part of the
Jewish Federation's ongoing ef
forts to combat cult influence on
Jewish teenagers. Five years ago.
Federation members became con-
cerned when evangelical mis-
sionaries approached North
Broward high school students.
Sharon Horowitz, director of
Judaica school said Federation
members felt the misssonarte*
were trying to deceive students by
not making then- Christian oner
tabon dear.
She said. The decepooe was
Sharon Horowitz
the problem If people join a group
with their eyes wide open, it's one
thing But to join after being
deceived that's when you are
being subjected to cult tactics."
The Federation set up a "cult
awareness program in I960 In
I38S. 200 people attended a cult
mittee and other Jewish
organizations.
During the past three years,
over 15.000 brochures titled "It's
An Offer You Better Refuse,"
have been distributed throughout
the community which lists the
Federation telephone number.
Half the students in Ross' class
stated they have been approached
at least once by people claiming to
offer a better way of life. They
emphasized that some of the peo-
ple who spoke to them seemed
convincing. Ross reiterated, that
"A missionary cares about the
soul, but a cult member wants to
grab you. get you and destroy you
for the cult's purpose. A cult
leader wants power over you. He
does not want to make you a bet-
ter person."
Judaica High School is a
beneficiary agency of the Jewish
Federation and receives funding
from the annual Federa-
tion I'mted Jewish Appeal
campaign.
Funds raised by the campaign
are used to provide social welfare
and humanitarian services in
Greater Fort Lauderdale, in

unrelated attacks on Israeli
civilians and military personnel in
Israel and the administered ter

labelled seemingly unrelated
only because no link between the
murders has been proven
However, the various attacks

Minister said that Yasar Arafat is
personally responsible for the at

The American Jewish Mosaic in Florida
The Jewish Community Center
of Fort Lauderdale, The Central
Agency for Jewish Education of
Miami/Fort Lauderdale and The
Judaic Studies Program of the
University of Miami is developing
a project entitled "The American
Jewish Mosaic in Florida." The
project, a major exhibit portray-
ing Jewish life in Florida from
1821 to the present, is planned for
1988 and will tour the State. The
Museum of Florida History and
the Historical Museum of
Southern Florida have endorsed
the project, and a steering com-
mittee has been organized con-
sisting of Laura Hochman, Abe
Gittelson, Seymour Liebman,
Lydia Golden, Dr. Sam Proctor,
Terry Harrow and headed by Dr.
Henry Green.
The expositon will focus on four
themes: immigration,
family/synagogue/institutions,
community relations, and con-
tributions to Florida. Each theme
portrays the rich and varied
mosaic of Jewish life as well as a
reflection of the tension, integra-
tion and accommodation to the
distinctive life-style and cultural
patterns of the State.
To enrich the experience, each
community will be invited to con-
tribute to the exposition as a
means of highlighting its uni-
Abraham J. Gittelson
queness. In addition, all com-
munities will be responsible for
developing outreach programs
(local speakers, panel discussions,
inter-ethnic discussions, scholarly
presentations, special school pro-
grams, etc.). It is hoped that the
exhibit will serve not only to
highllight the common ex-
periences of the Jewish ethnic
group, but will also provide a
model for otheu ethnicities
throughout Florida and Southeast
United States to explore their
roots and to exhibit their own con-
tributions to American life. To en-
courage such replication and to
enhance scholarly research, a
monograph is projected for each
theme as well as a book on Jewish
life in Florida.
For further information or
knowledge of artifacts and per-
sonal histories that can contribute
to the exposition please contact

Program, University of Miami,

U.S.A. to Launch Effort to
Boost Israel's Economy
By KEVIN FREEMAN
NEW YORK (JTA) Officials
and representatives of leading
hotel, airline and tourism groups
met with prominent Jewish
business leaders for two hours
here in an effort to devise new
methods to increase American
tourism to Israel to boost Israel's
beleaguered economy.
Max Fisher of Detroit told
reporters after the private
meeting that tourism is the second
fastest growing international in-
dustry, second only to the
petroleum industry. He also said
that Israel's tourist facilities are
currently being used even with
tourism growing at only about
half their capacity.
The meeting was under the
auspices of the tourism committee
of Operation Independence, a
group formed officially last
February and consisting of a task
force of some 100 international
Jewish business leaders seeking to
help strengthen Israel's economy.
Fisher is chairman of Operation
Independence, and of the tourism
committee.
While he did not reveal details
of the meeting, Fisher announced
that Operation Independence has
received a commitment from na-
tional rabbinical and congrega-
tional leadership of the major
branches of Judaism for rabbis in
some 2,500 synagogues in the
United States and Canada to an-
nounce a new program to expand
Jewish tourism to Israel.
At High Holy Day services
beginning Sunday, Sept. 15,
leaders of synagogues will call on
their members to form at least
one minyan or quorum of 10
that will visit Israel during the
next Jewish year. "We are confi-
dent that this will give rise to a
positive indeed, enthusiastic
response resulting in tens of
thousands of additional visitors to
Israel," Fisher asserted.
A 10-Year Project
Fisher, an industrialist and long
time activist within the American
Jewish community he was foun-
ding chairman of the Board of
Governors of the Jewish Agency
told reporters at the Harmonie
Club that Operation In-
dependence is a 10-year-project
that will deal with other economic
issues such as exports from Israel.
"Israel within the next decade
has to establish its economic in-
dependence, and not depend on
handouts" from the U.S., Fisher
said. Israel is provided with some
$4 billion a year in economic and
military aid from the United
States.
Fisher said the goal of the
tourism effort is to increase the
number of visitors to Israel by
some 500,000 after five years. It
was noted today that more
citizens of west Germany visit
Israel than American Jews on a
yearly basis
Israel's Population is 4.25 Million
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel's population at the end of the Jewish
year 5745 was 4.255 million, the Central Bureau of Statistics an-
nounced: Of the total, 82.5 percent were Jews, 13.5 percent
Moslems, 2.3 percent Christians, and 1.7 percent Druse and
others. During the past year, the total population increased by
about 1 8 percent, with the Jewish population growing by 1.6 per-
cent and the Moslems by about 3.2 percent.

We Must Never Forget
Holocaust survivor Nan-
dor Lazar never gives up.
And although not an
observant man, he feels God
may be working with him,
and if not, then a lot of other
people. Among the latest
who have become interested
in his ever-constant project
his simplistic design to
pay homage to the victims
and remind all who remain
of the dangers of the
Holocaust are Con-
gressman Tom Lantos of
California, and his wife,
Annette.
Lazar's latest
breakthrough occurred dur-
ing the April program to
commemorate the
Holocaust, sponsored by the
Community Relations Coun-
cil of the I'nited Jewish
Federation in Virginia.
Guest speaker was Con-
gressman Lantos. His wife.
Annette, was with him. And
while many of the audience
were crowding around the
Congressman, con-
gratulating him on a moving
presentation. Lazar unof-
ficially presented Annette
Lantos with a copy of his 12
x 16 poster which he
developed from a simple
pencil sketch and which ap-
peared in the first I'JF Yom
Hashoah supplement in
1982.
He later had the design
"perfected" and at his own
expense made into the
poster which he initially
tried (not too successfully)
to sell at the National
< iathering of Holocaust Sur-
vivors held in Washington
D.C. in 1983.
It v .. iisap-
pointment during those two
years, however, for he had
another "universal" idea
soar only to come tumbling
to earth later. This one con-
cerned his proposal to in-
tegrate the Holocaust into
the Passover seder, for in
his way of thinking 'Moses
was a long time ago, the
Holocaust is today.'' He
wrote to Rabbi Irving
Greenberg, director of the
National Jewish Resoruce
Center and suggested that
those at the seder remove
their shoes, and a question,
the fifth, be integrated into
the services, asking why
this was being done. On
March 26. 1982. Rabbi
Greenberg responded.
"... I have been haunted by
your suggestion and I
believe that you have come
up with an original,
creative, and profound sug-
gestion of bringing the
Holocaust into the Passover
experience without destroy-
ing Passover and without
neglecting the Holocaust.
"One of my future plans is
to work on developing a
liturgy ritual for remember-
ing the Holocaust. I will
plan to propose your sug-
gestions as one that world
Jewry should seriously
consider. ."
Although Rabbi
Greenberg's letter was a
moment of triumph, he has
heard no more from him
concerning the "fifth ques-
tion." But the fifth question
could wait, he reasoned, for
did not Moses have to
wander through the desert
for 40 years before the first
four were asked? And so
armed with stubborn per-
sistency, he began to
perfect his other dream on
paper. If some cannot
understand it today,
perhaps tomorrow.
Laxar speaks halting
Enghsh. but is very precise
when explaining the
message contained in his
design which is "to honor
the Jews and non-Jews who
died in the Holocaust and to
build a visual barrier in the
mind so that there will be no
more Holocausts." His posi-
tion to honor non-Jews is
adamant for he questions.
"Weren't .some of them in
the camps because they
were mwihugana enough to

In explanation of his
poster which is basic and
may lack some of the emo-
tional displays which are so
often found in other designs
related to the theme of the
Holocaust, he notes that
since the horrors of the
Holocaust are beyond
reasoning, the best ap-
proach would be the direct
one convey the message
with symbols universally
understood. Obviously Tom
and Annette Lantos agree
with him. Annette Lantos
was sufficiently impressed
with the project and the per-
sistence of the man behind it
to bring it to the attention of
her husband.
Holocaust Memorial Poster.
"We would like to see the
poster distributed free of
charge to all Jewish
organizations in the United
States. The Holy Days of
Rosh Hashana and Yom
Kippur would be a most ap-
propriate time for their
dissemination. Please let us
know if there is anything
else we can do." The letter
was signed by Tom and An-
nette Lantos. To officially
mark their support, they
drafted a letter which they
requested accompany the
poster to other Federations
across the country.
As A. Robert Gast. ex
ecutive director of the
I'nited jjj fff of Tidewater.
Ya. explains: "We have
followed Congressman Lan-
tos' suggestion and hope
that other Federations will
display the poster. Nandor
has put a lot of his soul into
it; perhaps others viewing it
will be able to feel it. Ap-
parently Lantos. who is a
survivor, experienced the
message."
Lantos noted in his official
covering letter: "I believe
that this poster is unique
among the many com-
memorations of the
Holocaust because of the
rare spirit of reconciliation
which it conveys...
reverence and even
triumph shines forth in
Mr. Lanzar's simple
design ... Its unpretentious

But fame to Nandor Lazar

and he shrugs his shoulder
at all those who would con-

who speak with him are

JERUSALEM At dramatic
eiBon the Cabinet adopted a
comprehensive economic plan
which hit hardest at the wage
earners. Premier Shimon Peres
and Finance Minister Yitzhak
Modai worked hard at persuading
ministers in the National Unitv
Cabinet Cabinet that at this stage
of the economic crisis there was
no way but to adopt these
measures. Peres made strong
hints that unless the plan was
adopted, he would resign.
But even as the majority of the
ministers supported the plan,
Histadrut reacted angrily. The
labor federation argues that
wages will be eroded by some 30
percent The plan assumes that
after a period of three months, the
economy would stabilise inflation
would go down to a one- figure, and one could launch into a
of economic growth.

world until now. The German
Finance Ministry estimates that
betwen now and the end of this
century it will still pay out another
16 billion Marks in benefits on the
basis of the existing laws which
ware enacted as the result of the
agreements between the Claims
Conference and the German
Federal Republic.
HUNDREDS OF thousands of
Jewish Nazi victims throughout
the world continue to look to the
Claims Conference for the protec-
tion of their interests under the
Indemnification Laws. Gose to
100,000 in Israel are today receiv-
ing annuities from the German
government, and 100,000 more in
other countries. Victims receiving
indemnification and annuities in-
clude also Jews from countries
that were occupied by the Nazis -
claimants who could not file
claims before they emigrated
from these countries.
They include those from the
Soviet Union, the Baltic countries,
the part of Poland in the Lemberg
region which was first occupied by
the Nazis and later annexed by the
Soviet Union as part of the
Ukraine.
The large number of Jewrish in-
dividuals who received compensa-
tion from the German govern-
ment for sufferings under the
Nazis would have fallen heavy on
the welfare of the Jewish com-
munities in the countries into
which they were admitted. The in-
demnification and annuities which
they received from Germany
under the agreements with the
Claims Conference have helped
them to estaliah themselves in
these countries.
More than a half of them have
died with the march of time, but
there are still about 200,000 reci-
pients of pensions slive today.
About 900 million Marks about
$800 million a year continue to
come to Israel to Nazi victims
from the German government as
legal obligation under the
agreements with the Claims
Conference.
THE GERMAN government
has also committed itself to s
Claims Conference Hardship

for applicants from Israel and
about 15,000 for applicants from
the United States. The remainder
were authorised for applications
from other countries. The total
number of applications received is
about 70,000 from Israel, more
than 35.000 from the United
States, and sbout 17,000 from
other countries.
Priority in the processing of the
applications, thus far, was accord-
ed to Jewish Nazi victims who left
Eastern Europe after 1965 and
who were 60 years or older
(women), 65 years or older (men),
or disabled. The Claims Con-
ference completed the processing
of most of the applications falling
within these categories.
Of the 400 million Marks com-
mitted by the Weat German
government for the Hardship
Fund, 20 million were earmarked
for allocations to organizations
providing shelter to Jewish vic-
tims of Nazi V^fSL^St
funds were allocated from 1981
through 1985 primarily forborne,
for the aged caring for substantial
numbers of elderly savors. The
allocations were made to 69 in
stitutions located in Israel.
France, Great Britain, Australia
and a number of Latin American
countries.
THE SCOPE of the indem-
nification and restitution program
under the agreements with the
Claims Conference has reached
great magnitudes in the first 20
years of the existence of the
Claims Conference. Nazi victims
submitted over 4,200,000 claims
under the provisions of just the
first agreement, and 75 percent of
the funds paid went directly to the
claimants who made their homes
in countries other than Germany.
Virtually all were Jews. Some
277,000 have received life-time
annuities. Scores of thosuands of
them were old, or ill, crippled or
otherwise unfit to earn a
livelihood from the effects of Nazi
persecution.
The president of the Claims
Conference during the first
decades of its existence was Dr.
Nahum Goldmann, who succeeded
in bringing sbout the recognition
by the West German government
of its obligation to pay reparations
to the victims of Nazi persecution.
Senior vice president was Jacob
Blaustein, the prominent
American Jewish leader and late
president of the American Jewish
Committee.
The president of the Claims
Conference today is Dr. Israel
Miller, the noted Jewish leader
who distinguished himself when
he served as president of the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
Jewish Organizations which coor-
dinates the activities of 37 major
Jewish groups in the United
States as they related to
American-Israeli affairs. Dr.
Miller is also the senior vice presi-
dent of the Yeshivah University,
and is active in various leading
Jewish organizations in this
country.
The exeuctive director and
scretary of the Claims Conference
is Saul Kagan, who has an en-
viable record ss a very able direc-
tor in the field of restitution. He
has been involved in this field for
37 years. He directed the ac-
tivities of the Jewish Restitution
Successor Organization (JRSO)
which preceded the formation of
the Claims Conference. He helped
to establish the Chums Con-
ference of which he became the
first executive director. He is also
the administrator of the Heiriess
Property Fund, the establishment
of which was agreed upon by the
West German government in
1980. He is a very active member
of the executive of the Joint
Distribution Committee

Other components of the '86 Campaign plan,
according to Grass, include the following:
"Fly-In," under the leadership of national
vice chairman Morton Kornreich, is designed to
assist community efforts in the solicitation of
$10,000-and-over gifts. Teams of distinguished
Israelis and UJA national officers are visiting
communities for face-to-face soliciations, fun-
draising meetings and leadership briefings.
The UJA President's Mission to Vienna and
Israel will take place Oct. 9-17, under the leader-
ship of national vice chairman Neil Norry.
The UJA "Washington Connection" is
scheduled for Nov. 12. This intensive all-day

The three activists are Isai and

refused emigration to Israel for 14
years, and Ida Nudel, exiled to
Bendery. Grigory Goldstein and
Nudel are both former Prisoners
of Conscience. Their messages
were obtained by the Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry.
In one of the messages, the
three sent their "greetings to the
State of Israel and the Jewish peo-
ple all over the world for a new
year of peace, health and prosperi-
ty. Please continue to demand
from Soviet authorities to end the
harassment of Jews in the USSR
and determination to continue in
our just struggle for freedom on
behalf of Soviet Jews."
In a message to President
Reagan, Secretary of State
George Shultz and President
Francois Mitterrand of France,
the three stated: "We Soviet
Jews, look forward to your talks
with high USSR officials, in-
cluding Mikhail Gorbachev. We
urge you to do whatever is possi-
ble to open the Soviet Union's
gates once again for Jewish
emigration. We appeal to you to
make this issue of emigration a
high priority during your talks."
ISRAEL The final group of prisoners in Israel whose
freedom was demanded by Shiite Moslem gunmen who hijacked a
TWA jetliner in June, was released recently. The Israeli action
opened the way for the possible release of at least some of the
Westerners kidnapped in Beirut in the last 18 months.

said the Israel has not yet decided when the new Ambassador

jtion chairperson,
[emphasiied that this year
is more critical than
ever, largerly because of the huge
numbers of our area Jews who live
in, or on the edge of poverty.
"Our community faces an even
deeper problem because the elder-
ly population is now more than 25
percent and growing, and the
need to provide social and medical
services takes on a special
significance," says Daren.
She especially noted the
economic problems that threaten
the health and families of both the
elderly and the young because of
severe unemployment and cut-
backs in government aid, par-
ticularly to the handicapped in-
dicating there has been a surge of
new clients now on the rolls of the
local Federation/UJ A-supported
agencies.
Among the agencies which
receive funds from the annual
Federation/UJA campaigns are:
Jewish Family Services, Jewish
Community Center, Central
Agency for Jewish Education and
the Hebrew Day School. Other
grant recipients include the
Kosher Nutrition program, Com-
munity Relations Committee,
Chaplaincy Commission, High
School in Israel and B'nai B'rith
Youth Organization.
In addition, she particularly
stressed the need for cash to pro-
vide the life-giving, life-saving
services performed by the Jewish
Agency, a non-governmental
organization which provides social
welfare and humanitarian pro-
grams in Israel and the Joint
Distribution Committee, an
organization of rescue and relief
for Jews in more than 33 land
overseas.
In closing, Daren said, "A short-
fall of cash at this time would lead
to unthinkable cutbacks at our
own agencies here in Greater Fort

all thoae who are convinced that
they alone are modem enough to
survive, should ask themselves
whether it is not equally likely
that they will simply be
assimilated into the magnetic
culture of the 20th century?
We need each other. The
renewal of each group is the best
insurance for the survival of .all
groups. It is time to develop true
consciousness of the urgency of
the polarization problem and to
formulate strategies detailed
enough and wise enough to attack
problems and find root solutions.
The will to unify, and recognition
of common fate is extraordinarily
powerful among the Jewish rank
and file. The failure lies in the fact
that all that energy has gone into
political and philanthropic fields.
It is time to translate the sense of
common destiny into theological
categories, halachic thinking, and
religious behavior.
This call for unity is not based
on the hope of upanimity or
uniformity. There is nothing
wrong with disagreements. The
divisions need not be papered
over. What is needed is restraint
to avoid fundamental breaches,
and commitments to find common
solutions. No one should
understimate either the tradition,
or the will and fertile imagination
of the Jewish people. There are
positive solutions enough within
our grasp. We need the in-
telligence, the courage and the
commitment to pursue it. The
time to act is now.

jceptance as Jews.
TRILINEAL DESCENT: The recent decision of the
rabbinate to recognize the children born of s Jewish
and a non-Jewish mother as Jews even without conver-
WL is creating another class of Jews who are not accepted as
by the rest of the community. There are an estimated
00 children of marriages between s Jew and a non-Jew in
ican Jewry. In one-third of those marriages, the partner
rted. Let us assume, then, that one-third of the 500,000
n will be recognized as Jewish. (This is actually too op-
ic. Unfortunately, many of those conversions are not accep-
to the Orthodox and Conservative movements, and those
rrn also will be deemed not Jewish.)
the two-thirds of the intermarriages in which one of the part-
does not convert, an estimated two-thirds are between s
father and a non-Jewish mother. Applying that ratio to the
BOO children left in the pool, we can estimate 220,000 children
mlineal descent. In the absence of conversion, they will be

considered Jewish by the Reform movement, but not by the more
traditional Jews. Their numbers will undoubtedly increase in the
next 15 years.
MAMZERIM: More than 100 years ago, the Reform rabbinate
decided to accept civil divorce as a legal end to a Jewish marriage.
For almost a century, that decision had no serious consequences,
mainly because the Jewish divorce rate was so low. Since the
J960s, American values have changed, and the old cultural insula-
tion between Jews and non-Jews has worn away. As a result,
there has been a tremendous rise in Jewish divorce. The
American national divorce rate is now estimated at 50 percent in
recent marriages. The Jewish rate could easily be at the 30-40
percent level.
The good news is that Jews have strong family values and com-
mitments. Therefore, Jews have a high re-marriage rate; indeed,
the highest re-marriage rate among American religious groups. I
The bad news is that, according to halacha (Jewish law), a mar-
riage can be dissolved only by a get (divorce document). If a ;
woman remarries without a get, she is considered an adulteress, :
and any child of this subsequent marriage is considered mamzer,
i.e., an illegitimate child. In Jewish law, there is no illegitimacy
out of wedlock, only illegitimacy out of incest, adultery, or second
marriage without a get. These illegitimate children can never
marry legitimate children.
A non-unreasonable guess would be that there are
200,000-300,000 Jewish weddings a year. A 20 percent to 30 per-
cent divorce rate would equal 60,000 divorces, of whom 30-50 per-
cent would remarry. That yields 30,000 second marriages a yer. If
we assume that such marriages have a lower fertility rate because
people may be less willing to have children, and if we assess a half-
or a quarter-child per marriage (the current Jewish birthrate is
1.2 children per family.), that would suggest 7,000-15,000
mamzerim a year, a devastating number. Let us arbitrarily ig-
nore the number of such children in existing second marriages.
The totals still approach approximately 100,000 to 200,000
mamzerim by the year 2000.

No Half Measures
THE PROBLEM of the Falashas who now live in Israel has
been given renewed prominence as a result of the demonstrations
being staged outside the Rabbanut building in Jerusalem Ob-
viously the concessions already made by the Israeli Chief Rab
binate have not had the desired results. In their attempt to make
the best of a bad job the Chief Rabbinate has compromised on
matters which puts them in direct conflict with earlier Chief Rab-
bis. This is apart from the fact that their decision is in opposition
to the Halachic rulings of all the accepted Poskim. Despite this
drastic back-down, they have not managed to satisfy the demands
of those who lurk behind the Falashas. manipulating them for
their own political ends, taking advantage of their "immigration
depression by diverting their dissatisfaction against the
Rabbanut.
If there was ever any doubt as to who are the people inciting the
Falashas, this has certainly been dispelled by now. It is a group of
activists from the Marxist Mapam organization led by that arch-
enemy of Torah Jewry, Victor Shemtov. The latter has pronounc-
ed categorically that "there is no need to convert immigrants who
consider themselves to be Jews."
A particularly disgraceful move was made by the Minister of
Absorption Yaakov Tzur when he requested the former Chief
Rabbis Ovadia Yossef and Shlomo Goren to perform the marriage
ceremonies for those couples who refuse to accept even the
minimal requirements of the Rabbanut and undergo tevUa leshem
giyur. Even by his own secular standards, such an approach can
only be interpreted as a gross attempt to interfere with the law. It
is as though the minister had requested one judge to carry out an
act in defiance of a ruling by another judge. The difference of
course is that the secular law is subject to the whims and fancies
of the judges and the vagaries of the times which is not the case
with a ruling by a possek.
The accepted halachic ruling on this issue is not subject to the
tampering of politicians and the matter is .now seen as a serious
test of the resoluteness of the Rabbanu, in whose hands all mat-
ters of personal status rest even according to the secular law of
the State of Israel.
If the political leaders were really interested in the best in-
terests of the community, they would do their best to convince the
rebels that the conversion procedure is part and parcel of normal
absorption procedure, without which they place themselves
beyond the pale. But the politicians are not interested in what is
best for the people, but in what is best for themselves. They are
taking advantage of the econonic and social discontent of the
Falashas and using it to undermine the authority of the Rabbanut.
What w at stake now is the fate of giyur k 'halocho in Israel. Un-
fortunately, it must be conceded that a certain hefkerus abounds
in Israel, where giyur is concerned. There is evidence to suggest
that this hefkerus set in well before the present Chief Rabbis were
elected to office. Whatever the case, right now is the time to plug
all the holes and put matters right. The Rabbanut must not be
swayed by political pressure.
Arms Sale Hypocrisy
We will undoubtedly return to the topic in coming weeks, but
one jarring aspect of the likely U.S. arms sales to Jordan and
Saudi Arabia is worth noting now. The major Administration ra-
tionale for the sale of fighter planes, anti-aircraft missiles
Stinger shoulder-launched missiles, and other deadly equipment
to Jordan is that King Hussein needs the arms to protect himself
against an increasingly militant Syria.
The odd thing about this is that this Administrator! has for
the^rtthreeTears gone out of its way to put a benign inter-
p7etan on Syrian aggression. It ^used^des^te^denc^-
to hold Syria responsible for the killing of 240'AneMMnn

THE HOUSE passed the 1985 State Department Authoriza-
tion bill which includes a provision, authored by CON-
GRESSMAN LARRY SMITH (D-Hollywood). that requries Radio
Liberty to strengthen current programming dealing with issues
of concern to Jewish audiences in the Soviet Union.
CONGRESS IS moving to re-name the street which runs in
front of the site where the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum will
be located as "Raoul Wallenberg Place," in honor of the Swedish
diplomat credited with saving 100,000 Hungarian Jews in
Budapest from the Nazis during World War II.
PRESIDENT REAGAN signed the United States Israel Free
Trade Area implementation Act of 1985. The act liberalizes trade
between the U.S. and Israel and is widely seen as a boon to the ail-
ing Israeli economy, virtually opening the door to Israel's pro-
ducts to be freely marketed in the U.S.
WEST GERMAN Chancellor Helmut Kohl, in a recent inter-
view defended his decision to have President Reagan visit the
military cemetery at Bitburg last May, saying, "I'd do it exactly
as I did it... It was bitterly needed. I think there was no
generalized outcry in the United States. There was an outcry
from a group of people which influenced public opinion." He did
notidentify the group. But it was an apparent reference to Jewish
organizations which critized the trip.
B'NAI B'RITH International appealed to Lebanese authorities
and the Syrian government to help bring about the relase of six
prominent members of the Lebanese Jewish community, one of
whom had been abducted more than a year ago and the others
during the last six months.
ACCORDING TO the Census Bureau's Population Advisory
Committee, there are currently 25 million married couples, and
the median duration for household stability is as follows: married
couple with children, 6.9 years; single persons living alone, 4.8
years; single parent family, 3.9 years; and persons living
together, 1.8 years. The median duration of s childless marriage
is only 4.2 years.
