Jewish Federation/United Jewish Appeal Raises Record Gifts ...
$2.4 Million Announced at Four Major Events
"The biggest week of the Jewish
Federation/UJA 1986 campaign was a
smashing success," according to John
Streng, general chairman. The week,
beginning Saturday evening, Dec. 14, got
the campaign off to a great start with the
Major Gifts Dinner.
The dinner, with its minimum $10,000
gift to the 1986 campaign, had its largest
attendance ever. At this black tie amar,
three great women leaders of our com-
munity, Evelyn Gross, Anita Perlman and
Ethel Waldman, were honored. The three
women were praised for their leadership
roles in helping to build our Jewish
The evening was a most enjoyable one,
which was highlighted by the fact that
over $1.2 million was raised for the
Regular campaign and an additional
$135,000 was raised for Project Renewal.
On Monday, Dec. 16, Palm-Aire Divi-
sion of the campaign honored Irving and
Esther Libowsky at the annual Paceset-
ters luncheon. This kick-off event was
very successful, helping to raise over
$300,000 to the amount raised in the
Palm-Aire campaign to date. "Irving
Libowsky who has served as Chairman
for the past few years at Palm-Aire has
been the main force in the dramatic suc-
cesses of the Palm-Aire division cam-
paigns," Streng said.

PARIS The sudden and
mysterious visit to France
recently by Wojciech
Jaruzelski, Poland's presi-
dent and Communist Party
leader, has fueled newe
speculation that the USSR
is preparing to allow the
emigration to Israel of at
least 15,000 Soviet Jews.
According to the
newspaper Le Monde, talks
are reported to be under
way on a possible deal in-
volving Israel, the United
States, France and the
Soviet Union relating both
to the emigration issue and
the nature of an interna-
tional format for a Middle
East peace conference.
Jaruzelski's sudden visit
to Paris, Le Monde said,
seemed to indicate that
Poland would also play a
role in the emigration phase
of such a deal. In the past,
Le Monde noted, Vienna
had been the transit point
for Soviet Jews who were
allowed to leave.
Jaruzelski's visit, however,
suggests that Warsaw
would be the transit point at
least for the next wave.
(In Jerusalem, where he
has been on a state visit,
French Foreign Minister
Roland Dumas confirmed
that Jaruzelski and French
President Francois Mitter-
rand had discussed Soviet
Jewry, but he declined to
provide any details.)
According to Le Monde,
the supposed deal reported-
ly being negotiated involves
The first involves a
declaration by Israeli Prime
Minister Shimon Peres
stating his willingness to ac-
cept in principle an interna-
tional framework of some
kind for Middle East peace
talks that would include the
Soviet Union, provided that
Moscow is willing to resume
diplomatic relations with
Israel. Peres already has
made such a statement on
several recent occasions.
Phase two involves a
gesture from Moscow in-
dicating readiness to

De Facto Peace Benefits Both Israel and Jordan
JERUSALEM While the Reagan ad-
ministration continues its effort to achieve a
breakthrough in the Middle East peace process,
observers here are saying that neither Jordan nor
Israel seem as anxious as the United States for it
The reason, say these observers, is that no one
in Amman or Jerusalem wants to upset the unof-
ficial peace that has existed between the two
countries for nearly 19 years.
Credit for this de facto state of peace is usually
given, at least in great measure, to the late
Moshe Dayan. It was he who insisted that the
Jordan River bridges remain open so as to
disrupt as little as possible the lives of the Arabs
living on the river's west bank, now ruled by
The intricate web of unofficial ties between
Israel and Jordan is the result of hundreds of
meetings between government officials at
various levels (including, some say, meetings bet-
ween successive Israeli prime ministers from
Levi Eshkol in 1967 through Shimon Peres in
1985 with Jordan's King Hussein) at which un-
written agreements have been reached to extend
the de facto state of peace. These agreements

Most Palestinians in the West

conflict can only be achieved on

Muhammad Nasr in his talk
recently. Nasr, of the village of
Doura near Hebron, is an elec-
trical engineer and former head of
the Palestinian Democratic Move-
ment for Peace.
Nasr argued that it was futile to
think that King Hussein of Jor-
dan, with the backing of Yasir
Arafat, will enter peace talks with
Israel. Only through direct con-
tacts between Israel and the
population of the West Bank and
Gaza Strip is there any hope of
achieving a settlement, he said.

Palestinian representatives would
have to be accompanied by a
freeze on Jewish settlements in
the territories and the immediate
granting of autonomy to the local
Arab population, he said. Negotia-
tions could then proceed toward
some sort of solution which would
create a political entity that would
be federated with Jordan and
Israel, Nasr said.
In response to a question, Nasr
said that while he felt most people
in the territories favored a
negotiated political solution, there
are PLO supporters among the
population as well, and most of
these side with the Abu Moussa-
led PLO extremists, and not with
Yasir Arafat. He admitted that if
elections were to be held today in
the West Bank and Gaza, the PLO
would win, but he added that this
is because the authorities have not
allowed alternative political en-
tities to be formed.
In response to another question
as to why Palestinian moderates
had not succeeded thus far in
uniting themselves, he responded
that some of the "moderates"
were indeed hypocrites who ad-

fresh start with the latest edition
of "Jewish Television Magazine"
focused on young people. "Jewish

on the 'Shalom Show,' on Sunday
mornings from 8:30-9 a.m. on

The 'Shalom Show' produced
and hosted by Richard Peritz is a
grant recipient of the Jewish

Lauderdale, funded by the

Two segments of the latest pro-

Israel. The first follows a group of
enthusiastic youngsters from the
Boston area who recently enjoyed
a firsthand experience of "Project
Renewal," which matches up
cities in the United States and

Canada with distressed
neighborhoods in Israel. These
youngsters spent an exciting sum-
mer living with families of
youngsters their own age in
Boston's "sister city" of Herzliah
and working on renewal projects
in the two neighborhoods of
Shaviv and N'vei Yisrael.
Another segment of this pro-
gram shows how a professional
Israeli basketball team "Mac-
cabi Haifa" has imported some
young Jewish basketball players
from the United States.
A third segment focuses on the
young from a less happy perspec-
tive, discussing genetic diseases
to which Jews are particularly
susceptible, such as Tay-Sachs. It
offers the good news, however,
that although such diseases can-
not yet be cured, they can at least
be prevented, and no one has to
get them anymore.

MEXICO CITY (JTA) A
group of leaders of the American
Jewish Joint Distribution Com-
mittee (JDC) visited Mexico last
month to present checks totaling
$600,000 to government and
church officials on behalf of
American Jewry, for reconstruc-
tion of buildings damaged during
the recent earthquakes. Heading
the delegation were Heinz Eppler,
president; Dr. Saul Cohen, ex-
ecutive vice president; and Sylvia
Hassenfeld, member of the JDC
The delegation coordinated its
efforts with the Jewish Central
Committee of Mexico, the um-
brella organization for Jewish
communities in that country.
Representatives of the JDC had
met with the Central Committee's
leaders in the aftermath of the
earthquakes to ascertain how the
American Jewish community
could best aid Mexico during this
trying period. Schools, hospitals,
and private homes were the most
heavily damaged during the

dent of the Jewish Central Com-
mittee of Mexico, the group met
with President Miguel de la
Madrid and presented him with a
check from JDC for $500,000 for
the specific purpose of rebuilding
a high school that collapsed. The
school provided general education
to more than 1,800 children in two
Torenberg said the local Jewish
community sought the help of
world Jewry in order to help the
country get back on its feet, just
as the Mexican Jewish community
had promised during previous
visits with the President.
He added, "this delegation has
been able to witness that the in-
frastructure that can be offered to
American tourists was not damag-
ed by the disaster." The Mexican
Jewish community conducted a

following the disaster and raised
Sympathy Of American Jewry
In presenting the donation,
Eppler said the delegation extend-
ed to the President and the Mex-
ican people "the sympathy of the
American Jewish community and
a concrete expression of their sup-
port for the ongoing reconstruc-
tion efforts in Mexico City."
Cohen underscored the impor-
tance the Mexican authorities
place on education and culture.
"American Jewry," he said.
"feels it is appropriate that it
should help Mexico in this area.
The children that will benefit from
the school reconstruction are the
leaders of the twenty-first cen-
tury," he added.
President de la Madrid was
deeply moved and thanked the
delegation and the Jews of the
United States for their moral and
Later, the delegation met with
Cardinal Ernesto Corripio
Ahumada, Archbishop of Mexico,
to whom they presented $100,000
for the purpose of providing hun-
dreds of homeless people with a
place to live. The project is a joint
venture between JDC and the
Catholic Relief Servies. The funds
will be provided to the Fund for
Community Aid (Fondo de Ayuda
a la Comunidad) which was found-
ed by the Archbishop of Mexico to
confront the acute problems caus-
ed by the earthquakes.

dent Mauricio Menache said the
delegation's visit during one of
Mexico's most difficult moments
points to the brotherhood that
characterizes relations between
the Jewish and the Catholic

Israel itself could benefit." So
commented Dr. Robert O'Neil,

The topic of Dr. O'Neil lecture
was, "The Strategic Defense In-

ing the Strategic Defense In-
itiative, more commonly known as
"Star Wars," Dr. O'Neil pointed
out that research into such a
defense system has been going on
for many years, both in the United
States and the Soviet Union;
President Ronald Reagan has just
given it more publicity by bringing
it to the forefront of arms control.
Dr. O'Neil then went on to
discuss the objectives of the
Strategic Defense Initiative, such
as shifting the base of nuclear
deterrence from offensive to
defensive, and eliminating the
threat of a first strike.

A significant aspect of the de facto peace in-

techniques and irrigation methods.
Even the June 1967 cease-fire lines have been
amicably adiusted at lease twice in 1970 and
again in 1975 through unofficial contacts.
Clearly the most important aspect of the de fac-
to peace, however, is in the area of security. Even
lately, when Jordan has become host to a variety
of Palestine Liberation Organization offices, its
territory is not being used (at least knowingly) as
a staging area for terrorist activity. Even

European Jewry Fights Dwindling Numbers

The views expressed by columnists, reprinted editorials, and copy do not
ly reflect the opinion of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdaie.
Israel's efforts to solve its economic problems has entered a
new phase as the comprehensive 90-day freeze on wages, prices
and taxes is being replaced by an eight-month program to further
limit costs and increase revenues by some $600 million.
"Package B," as the successor to the freeze is known, was an-
nounced only days after the cabinet unanimously approved a
$23-billion budget structure for the fiscal year which began April
1. While the budget cannot reduce debt service (38 percent), it
cuts defense spending another $300 million (to below 30 percent).
Discretionary areas must be reduced at least 10 percent, in-
cluding humanitarian spending. A government spokesman stated,
"We're not through yet; more cuts are planned."
' Consumers will find particularly painful lowered price sup-
ports for basic foods and utilities, and a three percent automobile

Peres' Extra Mile
The Middle East news mostly bad keeps coming in so fast
and furious that it is easy to forget some of the fundamentals. One
of them is that the government of Israel is currently pursuing a
peace initiative which could, if reciprocated, lead to a Middle East
settlement and ultimately to peace.
Prime Minister Shimon Peres continues to express his will-
ingness to negotiate with the Arabs at any time in any place. In
the last few months he has made significant modifications in
Israel's basic negotiating position.
He has, on occasion, indicated that although he insists on con-
cluding a formal peace treaty with Jordan he would accept a
temporary state of nonbelligerency as a first step. In other words,
he is not asking King Hussein to immediately go the whole route
to peace. He will accept a little less now in pursuit of complete
normalization later. Peres understands the constraints on Hus-
sein and does not ask for what Hussein may consider the
Peres will accept peace negotiations with Jordan and the
Palestinians under international auspices. Previously, Israel had
insisted that negotiations be direct and without the participation
of the anti-Israel United Nations. Now, Israel will accept some
form of international "umbrella" a concession to Hussein. It
wul also accept a Soviet role in the negotiations if the Soviets
change their policy toward Israel and toward the emigration of
Peres has also indicated that he is flexible about Palestinian
representation at a peace conference. He will not accept PLO par-
ticipation in any form but he says that Israel will not examine the
associations of legitimate Palestinian leaders under a microscope.
He wants the Palestinians at the peace table and is not seeking a
way to bar their participation.
Perhaps most important is that Peres continues to reiterate
that everything is negotiable once Jordan (and, he added the other
day, Syria) come to the table. By saying that the West Bank,
Golan Heights, and even Jerusalem are on the table, Peres does
not mean that he will give any of them away. He does mean that
he is prepared to talk about any issue the Arabs want to bring up.
By the same token, they must be prepared to discuss the main
item on Peres' agenda: peace and the security of Israel. In the
context of negotiations, compromises will be made and, just
poanbly, agreements can be reached.
The Arabs may not believe any of this. Hussein and Hafez
Aawd nay believe that Peres is just playing to the world media.
Their best bet is to test him or in their view call his bluff. If
they do, they will discover that Peres is serious about peace and
that be is ready to go the extra mile for it Perhaps that is why
they are so reluctant to respond to Peres' challenge.
The ball remains in their court.
By JUDITH KOHN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Forty years after the
Holocaust left a once thriv-
ing center of Jewish life
depleted and in shambles,
remnants of the European
Jewish community are still
fighting to keep their
numbers from dwindling.
But in the case of Europe,
quality rather than quantity
may present the best hope
for the survival of Jewish
religion and culture.
That Jewish communities in
Europe are enjoying a new vitali-
ty even as their members are lost
to emigration and assimilation,
was the recurrent theme of Euro-
pean Jewish leaders who address-
ed the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions at its recent 54th General
The Jewish population of
Europe "is a community in
decline," David Lewis, treasurer
of the European Council of Jewish
Community Services, observed in
his address at a forum on Euro-
pean Jewry four decades after the
Lewis and others said that some
1.5 million Jews were left in
Western Europe after World War
II and that the number has con-
tinued to dwindle despite massive
efforts to rebuild the Jewish
Aside from the estimated 2
million Jews in the Soviet Union,
which, because of their near com-
plete isolation and repression by
the government, are generally
treated in a category of its own,
European Jews today are believed
to number between 1.3 million to
1.4 million, the overwhelming ma-
jority of whom about 1 million
live in England and France. Ex-
cluding London and Paris, only 12
European cities have Jewish
populations of more than 5,000.
The Most Insurmountable
The most insurmountable pro-
blem of the remaining Jewish
communities in Europe, according
to the speakers, is precisely their
declining numbers. One of the
root causes can be seen as silver
lined with a cloud: immigration to
Israel. Although it is a source of
pride, it has taken a great many of
the young people, causing not only
a reduction in the Jewish popula-
tion but also a depletion of Euro-
pean Jewry's most promising
resources, the speakers pointed
out. There are also many Jews
who have left for France and the
As a result, these communities
are heavily weighted toward old
people, Lewis said. The priority
has gone from one of rebuilding to
a struggle "not to disappear."
The other nemesis, presenting
an unremitting challenge to the
survival of European Jewish life,
is assimilation and intermarriage,
according to speakers at the
forum. In England, the outmar-
riage rate is between 25 and 40
percent, according to Jeffrey
Greenwood, chairman of the
Jewish Welfare Board, the largest
Jewish social welfare agency in
Europe. In France, one out of
three marriages are mixed, accor-
ding to Jean Levy, vice president
of the Fonds Social Juif Unifie.
Confronted with the reality of
its declining size, the Jewish com-
munities have gone from the first
phase of the post-Holocaust
generation that of breathing
life back into the traumatized
vestiges to one of enriching the
quality of Jewish life that
"Today, as we pass this ben-
chmark of forty years, we realize
that our efforts are no longer tied
to the past, but we are geared to
the future in Western Europe,
and the Holocaust still a vivid
and painful memory is no
longer a point of reference for our
work," said Heinz Eppler, presi-
dent of the American Jewish Joint
Some of the smaller and con-
tinually declining Jewish
populations of Europe will in-
evitably disappear, Lewis said
later to the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency. In Poland and
Czechoslovakia, he assessed,
there would soon be no Jews at all,
and within 20 years, assimilation
and intermarriage would bring
the same fate to small Western
European communities such as
that of Zurich.
A New Vitality
But all is not gloomy, said
Lewis and his colleagues at the
forum. They spoke of a "new
vitality" in what remains of
Jewish life in Europe.
"This revitalization has
gathered pace and accelerated
over the last five years," Green-
wood said of the community in
England. He attributed the
revival to Israeli investment in
education, particularly through
the dispatch of shlichim Israeli
repersentatives sent to convey the
Zionist message to youth and
adults. It is also, according to
Greenwood, the result of recogni-
tion on the part of many in the
post-Holocaust generation that
"survival counts." Beyond all
this, he observed, there has been a
"return to matters spiritual" by

of the British Jewish community

The Jews of France, although
fast losing numbers to emigration,
are devoting a considerable part
of their funds and energies to
newcomers, according to Levy.

A Vital Link
One organization that has work-
ed to sustain what is left of Euro-
pean Jewry is the European Coun-
cil of Jewish Community Services.
Established in 1960, with the help
of the JDC, it now has some 19 of-
ficial member countries, including
Eastern Europeans such as
Hungary and Rumania. Represen-
tatives from Poland,
Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria and
other East European countries
participate in the Council as
The organization, which
establishes educational, social
welfare and leadership training
programs across the continent,
provides, according to Lewis, a
vital link between the miniscule
Jewish populations of Budapest,
Salonika and other Eastern Euro-
pean cities, and Jewish life in
Europe as a whole. Lewis urged
American Jews to visit these
isolated communities, to help
revitalize what remains of Jewish
life and to demonstrate that they
haven't been forgotten.

is an account of Rabbi Marshall
and the Argentine Jewish
Rabbi Marshall T. Meyer, newly
appointed rabbi of Congregation
B'nai Jeshurun in New York,
spent 25 years in Argentina
revitalizing Jewish religious life
and fighting for human rights.
He was the only non-Argentine
to be appointed to President Raul
Alfonsin's National Commission
on the Disappeared and was an
advisor to the Ministry of Health.
Active in the Inter-American In-
stitute of Human Rights, he has
received Argentina's highest
award in recognition of his work.
He discussed his struggle for
human rights in Argentina and
Argentine Jewry's acquiescence in
a recent interview.
When did 70a settle in
I left the Unites States in 1959
and did not return until June
1984. My decision to leave Argen-
tina was prompted by emotional,
physical and spiritual exhaustion,
the result of living under the
tremendous pressures of a
military dictatorship, followed by
more than a year of intensive
work on the National Commission
on Disappeared Persons.
During that time I traveled and
took testimony throughout the
world, trying to trace the disap-
peared and find the guilty parties.
It was one of the most grueling
and horrifying experiences of my
life, but not my first contact with
these mothers and grandmothers.
I had been working with them
since the military takeover in
But by last June I felt that I had
to get away for awhile. I could no
longer bear to look into the pain-
ed, anxiety-ridden faces of
parents whose children had long
since disappeared and were pro-
bably no longer alive. In addition,
I was ministering to a congrega-
tion of over a thousand families
conducting 150 weddings a year,
serving as the rector of the rab-
binical seminary, publishing and
editing books on Judaism in
Spanish for the seminary press
and acting as advisor to the
Ministry of Health, Secretariat of
Human Development and Family.
Action Resolutions .
Editor's Note: The following was adopted by the 54th
General Assembly of the Council of Jewish Federations,
November, 1985, Washington, D.C., and expresses the views of the
delegates of the member Federations.
The General Assembly meets at a critical time for Soviet Jews
the lowest point in emigration in two decades and on the eve of
the first Summit talks between the United States and the USSR
in six years.
At this pivotal juncture, we are deeply concerned about the in-
creased harassment, arrests, and imprisonment of aliyah activists
and Hebrew teachers, as well as the increased harshness of condi-
tions imposed upon Prisoners of Zion.
The Council of Jewish Federations applauds the President of
the United States for his public espousal of the cause of Soviet
Jewry and supports his efforts to achieve their release. We are
sensitive to the opportunities presented by the highest-level talks
between the United States and the Soviet Union the upcoming
meeting of U.S. President Reagan and Soviet leader Gorbachev.
We commend the President for his expressed intent once more
to raise the issue of Soviet Jewish emigration to a high level of im-
portance in Ms discussions with the Soviet leadership. If new
agreements with the Soviet Union are to be entered into, its
credibility under existing treaties should be demonstrated by its
fulfillment of the Human Rights provisions of the Helsinki
We urge the North American Jewish community to place the
issue of Soviet Jewry before their governments with vigor and
creativity, raising this to a higher priority of public opinion so that
the Soviet government will understand the deep concern of our
two countries and our readiness also to respond positively to
Soviet initiatives on this issue.

Divison of the campaign. The successful
dinner brought Inverrary's campaign to
close to $100,000 to date. Max Buck is

The week concluded with the annual
Woodlands Dinner. Leon Messing, a
longtime worker for the campaign in
Woodlands, was honored for his years of
dedicated service. A total $800,000 was
pledged at the Woodlands Dinner accor-
ding to Dan Klein, Division chairman.

moved our campaign well ahead. We are
now entering the crucial period of solicita-
tions in our major areas and in the Con-
What did the National Com-
mission of the Disappeared find?
Irrefutable proof of the disap-
pearance of at least 9,500 people.
We have reason to believe that the
figure is much larger, but even to-
day some parents have not
reported the disappearance of
their children, either because of
fear or in the belief that by declar-
ing them disappeared they will
somehow endanger their children.
I think their silence was a fatal
Of course, those who screamed
the loudest didn't get their
children back, but at least they
aided in slowing down the terrible
process. We calculated that some
30,000 people were directly af-
fected by arrest, torture or death.
We also proved a definite policy of
liquidation of anyone the military
junta declared undesirable as well
as an increased measure of tor-
ture to Jewish prisoners.
Are there similarities between
what the Nazis did in Europe
and what occurred in
Yes. There were crematoria in
Argentina, concentration camps,
murder by torture and guilt by
association, not because one was a
Jew or a Gypsy, but because one
was considered subversive by the
junta. During its unfettered rule,
the junta murdered whom they
wished, with complete impunity.
What typically happened to
The disappeared person might
have been a 16-year-old high
school student, a college or
medical student, a young profes-
sional, a journalist, a psychiatrist
any man or woman thought to
have something to do with left-
wing subversion. The individual
was taken from home, often in
front of his parents' eyes.
Sometimes the parents were
The young victim was beaten
before being dragged into the in-
famous unmarked Ford Falcons.
Frequently, army trucks would
arrive the next day, and all of the
apartment's contents would be
carted away. If one sought to
draw up a writ of habeas corpus,
one found very few lawyers who
had the courage to do so. Many
lawyers who tried to defend the
disappeared were never seen
The most significant force that
stood up against the military junta
was the growing number of
mothers whose children had disap-
peared. From all social classes,
these women, who wore em-
broidered white bandanas with
the names of their missing
children, marched silently in front
of the government house every
Many of them disappeared as
well. This went on from 1976 to
1982. Families broke up over the
silence of other members and
their inability or unwillingness to
help their own brothers, sisters or
mothers look for their abducted
nieces and nephews and in some
cases, their own children.
It sounds unbelievable, but peo-
ple were dropped alive form
helicopters; buried alive in com-
mon graves; burned and tortured
to death; left for months to rot in
their own excrement in tiny three-
foot-square cells, where they
could neither sit nor lie down.
They died of the cold in winter and
of heat in summer. And all the
public said was: "If a boy or girl is
taken, there must be a reason."
Most people were too frightened
to act; they were accomplices by
How did the Jewish communi-
The Jewish community was hit
very hard. Probably over a thou-
sand Jews were among the disap-
peared. I know of only one or two
cases in which people were ar-
rested because they were Jews.
But so many of those who disap-
peared came from university
circles, and the percentage of
Jews in the university is much
higher than in the general popula-
tion. In addition, most of the vic-
tims came from urban areas
where the Jewish population is
Also the age group and
ideological profile of the victims
matched that of the more pro-
gressive Jewish youth. It's not
that they were necessarily Marx-
ist or revolutionary, but many
were fed up with and embarrassed
by the conspicuous consumption
of their wealthy families.
People were also arrested
because of their association with a
victim. If, for example, a
psychiatrist were arrested, every
one of his patients would disap-
pear the next day. So, if we heard
that such a psychiatrist or a
youngster who belonged to a
Jewish youth group was taken, we
would try to convince the parents
to get their kids out of the country
within 24 hours, which we were
capable of doing, thanks to the
help of the Israeli ambassador,
who helped save hundreds of lives.
Did yon play an active role in
helping people escape?
I did everything in my power to
Were yon immune from arrest?
Of course not. Nobody was pro-
tected. I simply responded as I
thought a rabbi had to respond.
Neither was I immune to fear.
What separates the activist from
the coward is not fearlessness.
Anybody facing violence and
death is afraid, but the coward
allows fear to paralyze him while
the activist does what has to be
done despite the fear.
Did yon find allies among the
Very few. The organized Jewish
community felt that it was advan-
tageous to maintain unity and
"cordiality" in its relationship
with the military dictatorship in
order to minimize anti-Semitic ac-
tivity. That tactic was a mistake.
History has proven that such a
tactic only serves the dictatorship,
especially an anti-Semitic one,
which prefers to have a single ad-
dress for handling all Jewish
What did the (Catholic)
Church do to defend the victims?
I must say with chagrin and
shame that the hierarchy of the
Catholic Church was an ac-
complice to the butchery, doing
nothing to stop the process of
organized murder. Indeed, in-
dividual activist priests in towns
and villages who defied the junta
felt the wrath of the hierarchy.
Not so the Protestants. I met
many more Protestant ministers
trying to visit the prisoners than I
did Catholic priests. It was essen-
tial that we saw as many prisoners
as possible. Those individuals seen
by a rabbi, minister or priest could
hardly be said not to exist by the
military or police.
You mentioned concentration
camps. What were they like?
They were not on the scale of
Dachau or Auschwitz. Some were
in private houses within the city,
in which 30 people were thrown in
a cellar and kept there for years.
Three or four thousand people
Rabbi Marshall T. Meyer
were imprisoned in the naval
mechanical school. Behind that
complex of beautiful white
buildings, people were tortured
and murdered in the most savage
How has all this affected the
People to this day question
whether it really happened. It
makes one think of the revision
that is going on in regard to the
Holocaust. There are those who
still insist everybody who was kill-
ed should have been killed because
they were subversives.
WiU justice be served?
I believe in President Alfonsin,
in his honesty, his integrity, his
commitment to a pluralistic
democratic society. He is a great
lover of freedom, and I think he
will do everything in his power to
see that justice is done.
Argentina has reason to be pro-
ud now that material on the
atrocities has been published. It
has been recommended that this
be included in the curriculum of all
secondary schools so that no
Argentine can grow up without
knowing what the military did.
They bled the country through
their corruption. When they took
power the foreign debt was $6
million when they left it was $48
billion. Their last-ditch chance to
win internal support was the

An aging couple,

We felt so strong
Little between us

The children were born

A family unit

How hurt I feel

We've hurt one another,

to forget each others name.
He often embarrassed me
in front of my friend,
Further hurting a heart,
that was unable to mend.
Her ideals for me

Causing me stress
upon forceful imposition.
I look at my spouse,

And she pauses a moment

He's about to say something

TEL AVTV (JTA) An ancient
synagogue collection box contain-
ing about 500 coins, half of them
gold and the rest bronze, hidden
for well over 1,000 years, has been
uncovered during an ar-
chaeological dig of the ancient set-
tlement of Merot in the eastern
Archaeologists, who have kept
the find secret for many months
until completion of the current dig
and removal of the coins for ex-
hibition in a museum, declined to
put a value on the find.
The gold hoard was found in a
collection box carved in the floor
of a storeroom attached to the
side of the synagogue. The hole
was plugged by a close-fitting
stone which apparently saved the
collection from being plundered
throughout the ages.
The synagogue had apparently
been damaged several times by
earthquakes, which presumably
led to abandonment of the town
and its place of worship. The ar-
chaeologists believe the treasury
had been used to pay for
reconstruction work, as building
materials brought to the site but
not used were found nearby.
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Agency for International Develop-
ment has budgeted for 1986 about
$5 million for grants competition
to provide funding for research
and cooperation between Israel
and Third World countries.
The figure represents more
than double the amount of funds
allocated last year for the United
Development Research program,
which is designed to tap into
Israeli scientific and technological
expertise, Peter McPherson, the
administrator of AID, told the
World Jewish Congress.
CDR aims at Israeli cooperation
with Third World scientists, par-
ticularly those from "least
developed countries." AID seeks
"innovative research ideas in the
natural sciences that aim to solve
serious development problems,"
The CDR program developed
from a proposal by U.S. Rep.
Howard L. Berman, D-Calif., who
introduced an amendment calling
for funds to be allocated to im-
prove collaboration between
Israel and Third World developing
Among the projected programs
was a grant of $149,950 to Tel
Aviv University in collaboration
with the Forest Research Center
in Kumasi, Ghana. The research
seeks to elucidate the role of a
relatively new group of viruses
which infect fungi."

More Cuts Risky
Only the Iraq-Iran war and lack of unity among Arab states per-
mitted Israel to make the massive defense budget cuts included in
the country's current economic reform program, according to
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin. The Middle East "arms race
goes on. The Soviet Union continues to supply Syria, Libya and
Iraq. The total defense budget for Middle East countries exceeds
$20 billion per year," Rabin said on his recent Washington visit.
But "because of inter-Arab problems, the capability of Arab
countries to have a concerted military policy against Israel is
limited. Therefore ... we can take the risk of cutting the defense
budget," he added.
However, Rabin cautioned that once the Persian Gulf war ends,
"I don't believe we'll be able to do what we've done" and reduce
military spending further. "Of all the countries in the region,
Israel is the only one which cuts its defense budget." Signs of
reconciliation between Syria and Jordan also are creating a new
concern for Israeli planners.
Israel's military spending put at $5.4 billion in 1983 by the
Finance Minister was estimated at $4.2 billion for 1985. Asked
about suggestions from some Israeli economists that the govern-
ment needs to cut several hundred million dollars more next year
and that some can come from defense, Rabin replied, "We cannot
take too many (more) risks for the security of Israel."
The Defense Minister praised the Israeli public for accepting
wage attrition of up to 15 percent in real terms as part of the anti-
inflation austerity program. He said that only the current na-
tional unity government made the austerity program possible.
U.S. military aid to Jerusalem for fiscal 1986 stands at $1.8
billion. Discussions reportedly are under way between
Washington and Jerusalem for the same amount, plus allowance
for inflation, for fiscal 1987.

Eye-Witness To Destiny A
Nephew's Tribute To Dr. Ber-
nard Revel: A Modern Day
Joshua. By Joseph A. Kornfeld.
It has been said that Dr. Ber-
nard Revel, the scholar and first
president of Yesniva College, was
a man of rare personal charm, in
possession of a scintillating sense
of humor. These qualities of the
man are usually noted in passing,
buried beneath the extensive com-
mentary on his scholarly and
educational accomplishments. We
deserve the human dimension of
the Tulsa oil baron-turned-
This is the job that Joseph A.
Kornfeld, Revel's nephew, has
undertaken in a privately publish-

feld pays ample tribute to the
usual biographical fodder, but he
takes it further, relying on his
own memories of Revel and inspir-

Between Washington and
Jerusalem: A Reporter's
Notebook. By Wolf Blitzer. Ox-
ford University Press. 269 pp.
As the Jerusalem Post
Washington Bureau Chief, Wolf
Blitzer has occupied, since the
Yom Kippur War, one of the hot-
test of journalistic hot seats where
Israel and the Middle East are
concerned. Between Washington
and Jerusalem his sharp and con-
cise collection of memories, in-
sights and analyses, is proof that
Blitzer has not squandered his
Blitzer's top-level access allow
him to share new facts and
fascinating insights on such Mid-
dle East players as Menachem
Begin, Anwar Sadat, Jimmy
Carter and Ronald Reagan. Some
of it is not only personal, but
historical: Witness Sadat's
crediting Blitzer himself for giv-
ing him the idea of beginning his
peace offensive with a personal
visit to Israel.
Blitzer explores the many facets
and angles of the Middle East-
Western relationship, providing
intelligent commentary on the
role of American Jewry in the US
political process; the Washington
bureaucracy; the Israeli presence
and influence in Washington; Con-
gressional attitudes toward the
Middle East; and intelligence links
between the countries involved.
Well organized and lucidly ex-
plained, Blitzer's writing cuts
through the Middle East haze and
actually details how the vast
machinery works and interacts.
Though his material is heavy
and complicated, Blitzer avoids
falling into the trap which engulfs
many journalists embarking on
similar projects. He is enough of a

unification of purpose with Na'amat, the largest women's
