The Federation
Cornerstone of the Community
'... A New Strategy For Strengthening
Jewish Identity and Commitment'
In a notable occasion the
leadership of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale was passed on
as an enthusiastic group of
North Broward County-
residents, filled the colorful-
ly bedecked Soref Jewish
Community Center Gym-
nasium on the Perlman
Plantation Campus at the
recent Federation Annual
Meeting and Installation.
"We have reached a
crossroad in our history,
and as we celebrate the
start of our 20th Anniver-
sary year in serving our peo-
ple, Federation is entering
an age in which it possesses
the maturity, vision and
resources to significally
enrich the quality of Jewish
life for present and future
generations." These were
the words of Fort Lauder-
dale attorney Brian J.
Sherr, who had officially
completed his two-year
term as president of the
Jewish community's major
central organization.
In the exchange of the
gavel, Sherr emphasized
how fortunate North
Broward area members are
to live in the community,
namely because of the
Federation's efforts to keep
in pace with the rapid
population growth and the
need for services. He said,
''We can use our
achievements as tomor-
row's stepping stones.
Among which are the cur-
rent Hebrew Day School
building under construction
on the grounds of the
Perlman Campus which will
be the new home for 400
future students; the 1,000
hot kosher meals served

Austrian news weekly
reported that President
Kurt Waldheim blamed "a
lobby on the East Coast of
America" for influencing
the U.S. Justice Depart-
ment to bar him from entry
into the United States. Ac-
cording to the magazine,
Profil, Waldheim made the
charge, seen here as a veiled
allusion to influential
American Jews, in a speech
he delivered recently to a
small gathering of Austrian
war veterans.
Through the ages, Jewish

the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale,
has selected one of the com-
munity's major Jewish
businessmen and philan-
thropists to lead the Federa-
tion's 1988 United Jewish
Appeal campaign.
In a special meeting,
Federation president
Sheldon S. Polish told the
Floridian that Woodlands

Concerned with the
urgency and importance of
laying the groundwork for
the coming campaign,
Oshry has already set the
'wheels in motion' on his re-
cent report from the June
National United Jewish Ap-
peal selected leadership con-
ference in Chicago. See
Page 5.
In his announcement,
Polish indicated, "The selec-
tion of Harold Oshry as the
top campaign leader in 1988
was unanimous. Harold has
devoted his entire lifetime
to helping his fellowman
regardless of the cause. He
is committed to the
strengthening of our
22-area community and has
pledged his unprecedented
support to maintain the high
level of social service and
humanitarian programs
already achieved by our pro-
ud community."
Already recognized as one
of the country's pacesetters
in the field of fund-raising,
Oshry was selected in
March as chairman of
Special Gifts for the Na-
tional UJA Region 5 area
serving the State of Florida.
Prior to coming to South
Florida, he had devoted
more than 30 years as an of-
ficer and member of the
Greater New York UJA-
Federation, having served
on the campaign cabinet,
chair of the Auto industry,
where he was honored for
his tireless work, the

Carl Alpert
HAIFA The astute tacti-
cians of the left in Israel have
adroitly maneuvered the
public discussion of the Mid-
dle East problem in such a
way as to make it appear that
they, and only they, are in
favor of peace. "The peace
process," "peace in the Mid-
dle East," "Peace Now," "a
lasting peace with the
Arabs," all have become a
standard part of the so-called
liberal vocabulary.
Those who oppose their
policies are therefore put in
the position of opposing their
slogans, and therefore seem-
ing to oppose peace, this
without any further analysis
of the specific policies behind
the slogans. After all, who
can be against peace? Like
motherhood, it is a concept
that commands immediate,
full approval and support.
Those in Israel who may
not subscribe to policies of
compromise and concession
advocated by the left, have
thus far been completely
outsmarted in the battle for
public opinion and have per-
mitted the word "peace" to
be monopolized by the other
side. The consequent in-
ference is that all who oppose
the "peace" policy of com-
promise with the Arabs are
therefore against peace. And
one who opposes peace is
automatically seen as a war-
monger. In short, the
psychological ploy has suc-
ceeded in sharpening the
issue in simple terms as ap-
parently between the "peace
camp" and the "war camp."
A closer examination of the
issues behind the constant
emphasis on "peace" as an
advertising slogan presents
quite a different picture. It is
not at all difficult to make out
a strong case against the
policies advocated by the so-
called "moderates"
policies which span a variety
of programs, including
Israel's abandonment of all or
sizeable areas of the West

Focus, Viewpoints, Opinions, and Commentaries
In Praise of Our Dedicated Volunteers
The views expressed by columnists, reprinted editorials, and copy do not neceaaarilv
reflect the opinion of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
At its very essence, a
"Jewish" community is the
people who comprise it and the
volunteers who give of their
time and emotion to sustain its
institutions, be they congrega-
tions, agencies, organizations
or the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale.
If not for these thousands
upon thousands of volunteers
no Jewish community could
survive or grow. Indeed, for
the Federation alone, more
than 3,000 separate in-
dividuals volunteered in some
capacity over this past year,
spending thousands of
volunteer hours on projects
that enriched the quality of our
North Broward Jewish life.
Multiply that by those who
More Yinglish
Like a bottle of vintage wine, Leo Rosten's Hooray for
Yiddish beckons us for just another taste and a moment of
utter enchantment in the delightful world of tradition.
"Don't ask!" is a popular Jewish expression. It comes from
the Yiddish, "Freg nit (or "nisht")." Rosten teases that it
may also be pronounced, "Dun't esk!"
"Shalom, Teddy. How's your wife?"
"Still sick."
"And your children?"
"They, thank God, are fine."
"And your gesheft?"
"I can't complain. Excuse me, Henry, I have to go "
"Wait a minute. Has it ever occurred to you, Teddy, that
in all the years we've known each other, it's always I who
asks the questions never you. Have you ever once asked
how I am, how's my Shirley, my job?"
"Migod, Henry, you're right. How thoughtless have I
From today on Henry! How are things with you?"
Sighed Henry: "Don't ask."
"Fartumelt" (pronounced far-toom-elt) means
bewildered, dizzy or confused. There's the story of "Battl-
ing Ike" Yunich, who went into the ring for the first time.
In the second round he took a terrific blow to the jaw that
sent him to the mat flat on his back. As he tried to wobble
up, his manager yelled, "No, no! Stay down until nine!"
Ike nodded, dazed. "What time is it now?"
"That's all I need!" comes from the Yiddish, "felt mir
nokh." Rosten tells of the woman patient, who is on the
couch. "Oh, Doctor! If you would only just once kiss
me!" The psychoanalyst responds, "Kiss you? That's all I
need! Why, I shouldn't even be lying next to you!"
"Tsores," which rhymes with Horace, means troubles,
worries, problems or afflications. The Hebrew is "tsarah,"
which is defined as trouble.
Isadore Boris Poliakoff was packing. The Commissariat
of Electrical Planning in Moscow had ordered him to a post
in Outer Mongolis. "Papa, I'll write, but the censorship is
very strict. We'll have to use a code."
'My boy, codes are dangerous. If your letter is written in
olue link, I'll know everything is true. But if your letter is
in red ink, I'll know it's all baloney!'
A month .passed. Then a letter arrived, in blue ink: "Dear
I live in a gorgeous new apartment. The butcher has meat
every day. There are,many cultural facilities. I have no
tsores at all.
Your son, Yitzchok Boris.
P.S. There's only one thing I couldn't find here: red ink."
I'm fartumelt, and that's all I need. If I continue with
this, I could be asking for tsores. But Rosen's book is so
much fun. Maybe some more a little later? Don't ask!
The author is an attorney and a member of the Young
Leadership group of the Atlanta GA Federation.

activities in our community,
and the numbers alone are
very impressive.
So, how can all of us who
have benefitted from their
selflessness say "thank you?"
One time-honored way is to
recognize those who have had
the greatest impact, singling
them out for special recogni-
tion. In so doing, we also honor
the hundreds of men and
women whose daily volunteer
efforts make Jewish life in our
community possible.
Our tradition tells of a per-
son who visits his rabbi,
somewhat troubled by a dream
he can't understand. "Rabbi,"
he says, "I've had a dream in
which I'm the leader of three
hundred men and women.
What does it mean?"
The rabbi responds, "It
means little. Come back when
three hundred men have the
same dream that you are their

Together, these two men
have been key volunteer
leaders of the Greater Fort
Lauderdale Jewish Federation
since coming to South Florida.
The people they have involved
and the communal spirit they
have evoked have helped move
the Federation, and thus the
North Broward County com-
munity, in new directions.
They have each made a dif-
ference to the quality of our
community life. What more
can one say in tribute to two
significant communal leaders,
whose work has helped shape

The road ahead in '87'88 is
frought with pits, detours and
unending concerns, and no one
knows better than the needs
facing not only our local com-
munity, but the community of
our brothers and sisters
throughout the world.
Throughout the lifetime of
Jewish people, Jews have turn-
ed to each other for the life-
bequesting, life-giving services
necessary to maintain a sense
of dignity and purpose. Our
purpose is clear and the peo-
ple's choice is clear. That is
why Sheldon S. Polish and
Harold L. Oshry will stand at
the forefront of Federa-
tion/UJA in the coming year.

A Strong Voice That Cares
From time to time, it is useful to remind ourselves who
and what we are. It is common for us, as American Jews, to
think of ourselves as a great and important people, and
time after time, we have proven ourselves just that. Every
event having a "Jewish angle." At every significant "hap-
pening," it is not uncommon for us to ask ourselves, how
can we help our brethren and is it what we are doing that
will benefit all Jews?
Who are we? There are no exact figures, only educated
Starting here at home, there are about 150,000 Jewish
men, women and children in North Broward County (unof-
ficial statistics) 53,000 in South Broward, about 500,000 in
South Florida (Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties),
and more than 560,000 in the State of Florida.
In the entire United States there are only about 5.8
million Jews, 2.5 percent of America's 232,000,000 people.
Of the 4.8 billion people in the world today, approximate-
ly 13 million are Jews, less than 0.3 percent.
Yet Judaism has attained the status of being one of the
three major religions in America. The world's press seems
fascinated with all things Jewish sounding, even when
there is not an inkling of Jewish propriety.
With the exception of the State of Israel, with its 3.4
million Jews, Jews form only a fraction within the coun-
tries in which they reside.
The third largest Jewish population of 1.7 million souls
live, as prisoners, within the Soviet Union unwanted, yet
not allowed to leave. They are persecuted simply because
they are Jews.
Keep in mind that until the 1940's, there were 15 million
Jews in the world mostly in Europe. That was before
Hitler's SS troops murdered six million Jews among the
more than 11 million innocent victims of the 1,000 Year
Reich. Souls which would have been our aunts and great
uncles and who would have borne our cousins.
Our people have still not recuperated from the human
destruction of those horrific years.
As a direct consequence of the human destruction of the
Holocaust, the focus of Jewish life moved across the ocean
to the United States. American Jewry became and re-
mains the most numerous, and, some would argue, the
most important, Jewish community in the world.
American Jewry today accounts for 45 percent of the
total world Jewish population.
From the 23 men, women and children who came to our
shores as the first Jews fleeing from the Portuguese In-
quisition in 1654, to the viable, caring and concerned 5.8
million today, one thing still holds true.
Jews will keep the promise to take care of their own and
not become a burden on the system. They set up their own
support programs, which provides a wide network of social,
educational, health and cultural agencies which have not
only earned the respect, but have also been replicated
throughout this country as the basis for the system of
voluntary non-sectarian social services today.
And that is what the Jewish Federation is all about. We
have been instrumental in bringing about the central struc-
ture reaching out to our people, young and old alike, ir-
regardless of financial or social status. So indeed, it is no
wonder that whenever or wherever an event takes place,
we are all there responding to the question, "Is it good for
the Jews?" with an "You bet it is, and if it isn't, we will all
work to make it Good!" MLV

CAMPAIGN '87 Federation/United Jewish Appeal
We Give All the Help For All the Right Reasons
An Open Letter to the Community ...
From Harold L. Oshry
Federation Executive
Vice President
and 1988 General Chairman
Editor'8 Note: Harold
Oshry, the 1987-88 general
chairman has just recently
returned from a National UJA
leadership meeting in Chicago,
and will in the coming FLORI-
DIAN issue highlight the role
of FederationJUJA in '88, as
well as announcement of cam-
paign cabinet and key area
division leaders.
Reasons, Motives Why do
people give to Federa-
tion/UJA? Why do people
These are good questions,
especially with the planning
for the 1988 campaign. Yes,
there are some who would
quickly cite negative reasons.
Guilt heads that list. But I
don't know anyone who gives
or volunteers for any solely
negative factor.
As a campaigner who has ap-
proached literally hundreds of
people on behalf of the United
Jewish Appeal, I have felt
from volunteer and con-
tributor alike a feeling of being
involved for positive reasons, a
form of self-actualization.
The issues that trigger their
involvement differ. One is
moved by the religious basis of
Tzedakah; the concept of
responsibility for one's fellow
Jews. Another is moved by
danger to the people of Israel.
Another by concern for North
Broward's Jewish elderly.
Another because his family
directly benefits from UJA-
supported programs.
In all, there are probably as
manv reasons for giving and
volunteering as there are
givers and volunteers. Yet, in
each instance, the person gets
involved in a manner and at a
level that is consistent with the
image he has of himself as an
individual, as a Jew, as a
member of this community.
Love for humanity, it is said,
requires a benevolent
theatricalization of life. Each
of us momentarily puts aside
what we do and who we are:
we transform ourselves into
chairmen, co-chairmen, com-
mitteemen, volunteers and
contributors. We take time out
from our usual roles to become
something different for UJA.
And in so doing, we enhance
our lives.
Many Federation/UJA
volunteers find that their cam-
paign efforts give balance to
their lives. "I enjoy my work,
but I need something more,"
says one. "It rounds out my
life," says another. "I'm ex-
panding myself in ways I can't
do in business." "I want to
give something back to the
community that made me
strong." "I help others, but at
the same time I'm gaining new
What these people all are
saying is that volunteering or
contributing is a form of self-
interest. To which I add the
phrase: "rightly understood."
Self-interest rightly
understood. It is the founda-
tion on which UJA stands. It
also is the basis for our Peo-

1654, Peter Stuyvesant, then
Governor of New Amsterdam,
would not let them enter

An Exodus In Our Time
BUCHAREST, Romania -
Around him, the office buzzes.
Bills for Passover matzahs are
being approved; clerk are
counting out Haguddahs, the
tale of the Jewish Exodus from
Egypt. The old rabbi leans
back in his chair and says, "An
Exodus? Maybe, We do go to
Israel when we emigrate.
We're Jews. Where should we
go, Philadelphia?"
David Moses Rosen, chief
rabbi of Romania, is sitting in
an overwrought chair in his
Bucharest office, his face
unlined and dispassionate; on-
ly the eyes betray his 76 years.
Besides being Romania's chief
rabbi, he is a member of the
Communist Party and a
representative in Parliament.
He is also the man most
responsible for helping
380,000 Jews make the Ex-
odus to Israel.
Before World War II, more
than 800,000 Jews lived in
Romania. Only half that
number survived. Today,
fewer than 24,000 Jews re-
main, and of those, well more
than half are over 65. Each
year, close to a thousand
depart (mostly the young with
university degrees), half that
number die, and fewer than 70
are born.
Although the end of Roma-
nian Jewry may be but a few
decades away, this Communist
government has allowed
Rosen and his staff with
$4.5 million a year raised by
the United Jewish Appeal and
Jewish Federations
throughout America to set
up one of the world's most ex-
tensive social aid programs for
those remaining.
Some have likened
Romania's Jewish community
to a state within the state. If
so, its Pentagon is the Office of
Social Assistance, a rambling
two-story house in the center
of Bucharest staffed by a
coterie of elderly Jews. With
more than half the Jewish
population in Bucharest and
the rest scattered throughout
the country, the office coor-
dinates and distributes health
care, clothing and supplies.
Twenty-ton trucks are hired
from the government eight
times a year to deliver kosher
food packages to 64 com-
munities. Clothing, blankets
and shoes are sent twice a
year. If money is needed for
other staples, such as wood, a
check is sent by mail. Eleven
kosher restaurants around the
country feed 2,600 Jews every
day and kosher butchers are
sent out every week to do
ritual slaughtering. In
Bucharest, seven mini-vans
deliver 700 meals daily.
In the medical field, aside
from free walk-in clinics, there
are four old-age homes. Dr.
Michael Saragea, the former
deputy minister of health,
manages one of them: the
Amalia and Moses Rosen Nur-
sing Home in Bucharest, a $2.5
million showplace of medical
technology, built solely with
American Jewish funds. An
author with four volumes of
physical pathology to his
credit, Saragea enjoys show-
Rabbi Rosen
ing foreigners around the
facility. Lounges, dining
rooms, comfortable bedrooms,
and a sanctuary line spotless
"We have hydro-therapy,
radiology, and a total of 240
beds," Saragea says. "All our
cases are severe. Less than 25
percent of our patients are
continent, less than 50 percent
are mobile. And many are
brought to us in terrible shape.
When people are old and lone-
ly, they sometimes don't ask
for help, and many of them
have had difficulty recovering
from the war.
"A husband dies, the
children have moved to
Israel," he shrugs. "It's a
typical story."
Conditions in Israel can be
extremely difficult for
newcomers; often, there isn't
money or room to bring grand-
parents. People also speak of
"that awkward age" between
35 and 60, for many Jews hold
excellent jobs in Romania and
don't want to lose them or
the pensions that go with
Their hearts may be in
Israel, but in small Bucharest
apartments, there are many
elderly Jews who speak proud-
ly of Romania and its ac-
complishments since the war.
They will be the first to tell a
visitor that only since the
Communists took control have
Jews had full civil rights in
their country.
Once the wayward child of
Western Europe, Romania, a
satellite of the Soviet Union,
has proved to be just as errant
a student of the Kremlin's
ways as it was of the West's.
Not only did the country not
particiapte in the Warsaw
'act invasion of
Czechoslovakia in 1968, but
Romanian prime minister
Nicolae Ceausescu loudly con-
demned the action. It is the on-
ly Eastern bloc country with
full diplomatic relations with
Israel, and the only one that
allows relatively free emigra-
tion there. It sent athletes to
the 1984 Olympics in Los
Angeles and trades heavily
with the West.
One might assume such ac-
tions mean a less totalitarian
form of government, but that
isn't the case. The primary
reason the Kremlin tolerates
Romania's divergence from its
foreign policy is that
Ceausescu presides over a
country as totalitarian as any
other in the Communist world.
Rosen and the UJA's Euro-
pean branch spend their $4.5
million a year with the Roma-
nian government to keep rela-
tions between government of-
ficials and the Jewish com-
munity on good terms. By
trading dollars for lei at the of-
ficial rate (the black market of-
fers six times more), and buy-
ing cattle, foodstuffs, blankets
and clothing from the govern-
ment, Romanian Jewish leader
have proved to be steady
customers in a country strap-
ped for cash.
Rosen himself makes good-
will trips to America once a
year, visiting State Depart-
ment heads and influential
senators. He seems to enjoy
his position, sometimes wear-
ing black and purple robes, and
is called "Eminence" by his
followers. Born in a small town
in northern Romania, he
became chief rabbi in 1947 and
also holds a degree in law.
When it comes down to which
Jews will depart each year,
Rosen and his staff make
recommendations to the
government, and very little
goes on without his
As for anti-Semitism, at
least in the old sense Romania
has moved on. Other fears,
other hates cloud people's
minds. The economy, once the
star of the Warsaw Pact, has
suffered severely from a series
of natural disasters (the 1977
earthquake, a string of bad
harvests), and a dependence
on Stalinist-type heavy in-
dustry (especially petro-
chemicals) has paid off poorly.
The country has incurred a
huge debt to the west, and the
results are weighing heavily on
the man in the street. Lines for
bread, meat, and gasoline are
extensive. Oil and sugar are
rationed. A single 40-watt
light bulb is allowed per room.
Restaurants close at 9 p.m.
There is high unemployment.
This, in turn, has translated
into envy of the Jews of
Romania, who are leaving the
country at a steady clip and
if they choose to stay and they
qualify for aid are provided
excellent medical care, not to
mention cheap or free meals.
If there is anti-Semitism in
Romania, it is best encap-
sulated by a sign outside Rabbi
Rosen's office: "We take no
conversions to Judaism. It is
pointless to ask."
While this modern-day Ex-
odus continues, it is the care
and aid given to these remain-
ing that is so remarkable. On a
December afternoon during
Hannukah, Rosen was driven
to Bohusi (pronounced "Bo-
hoosh"), a town covered with a
fresh coat of snow and nestled
against the jagged Carpathian
Mountains. A century-old
synagogue had been partially
burned (the young
perpetrators burglars, not
thought to be anti-Semitic
swittly were given seven-
year's sentences). Rosen in-
spected the damage, stook
among the 16 elderly Jews in
the warning afternoon light,
and said softly, "funny thing
about Hannukah. It is the
festival of light light made
from fire."
Then his voice rose, as if to
speak to a full congregation.
"And it can be a fire that
creates, or a fire that
destroys." The old rabbi look-
ed about the sanctuary, at the
hand-carved altar and the soot-
covered walls. He shook his
head slowly, as if accepting a
very easy bet.
"We will rebuild this
synagogue by next year," he
said. Then, turning quickly, he
headed for his waiting car.
By next year, the town of
Bohusi, where 3,000 Jews once
lived, will have fewer than 40.
But for Rabbi Rosen, that
doesn't seem to be the point.

THE REAGAN Administration's decision to bar Austria
President Kurt Waldheim from the United States was an
important "symbolic gesture," according to a senior
Justice Department official. "It is a declaration to the
world that this nation is and will be inhospitable to persons
who have acted in the way Mr. Waldheim appears to have
done during the war namely, participating in atrocities
against Jews and other groups in southeastern Europe,"
Deputy Attorney General Arnold Burns told the legal divi-

Bank, re-dividing Jerusalem
to give Hussein a foothold
there, and establishment of
an independent Palestine
(PLO) state. The latter would
serve as a perpetual, poised
menace to Israel's narrow
waist line at Netanya, or
perhaps merely constitute an
uncontrolled hothouse and
breeding ground for terrorist
infiltrators, facing a long
border where civilian targets
like schools, hospitals private
homes, become easy prey. Do
we welcome the setting up of
electrified, barbed-wire
fences, no man's land and
mine fields all along an
elongated, exposed border?
Nor dare we ignore the re-
cent revelation that the PLO
has already set up its own air
force, based in North Yemen,
has acquired planes, and has
trained some 100 pilots? Is
the plan to provide them with
airports much closer to us?
Once established, another
Arab state alongside Israel
would become a constant
source of friction and threat,
no matter what assurances
may be given at the outset
with regard to the banning of
armaments there. Incident
following incident would be
followed by a provoked Israel
reaction, and this would be
bound to bring international
condemnation and the active
intervention of other Arab
states. In other words, the
chimera of peace will be
revealed as a delusion,
leading only to a new war a
war which Israel would have
to fight at great handicap and
from a greatly weakened
The common sense of the
majority of Israelis grasps
these dangers. It is also
understood that even if some
Arabs would be willing to ac-
cept any compromise and
every concession that Israel
might make, they would use
the new position of Arab
strength to consolidate, and
then make further demands
and launch further attacks.
Once one begins to yield, as
we know from bitter ex-
perience with terrorist hi-
jackings and kidnapings, the
appetite is stimulated. Today
they want Hebron and
Nablus, but they are not
bashful, and their next goals
are Jaffa and Lydda, Haifa
and the Galilee. Their diehard
extremists make no secret of
this, and they are the ones
who, in the final analysis, will
terrorize the Arab moderates
to go along with them, or face
the fate which some Arab
moderates have already met.
The answer is to withstand
and oppose any policy which
contributes to a weakening of
Israel's defenses and a
crumbling of Israel's firm
will. We must be under no il-
lusions. We live in a world
where only the strong can
survive and demonstrate that
they have the power to main-
tain peace. In Israel's situa-
tion today, advocacy of
"peace" stemming from
weakness is defeatism.
Too many people have been
distracted from the real issue.
The goal is not peace. If it
were, there would have been
no Haganah, no War of
Liberation, no building up of
an army, navy and air force.
The goal is security. One
group of Utopians believes
that concessions will bring
peace. The other side, no less
Dateline: Haifa
anxious for peace, believes
realistically that concessions
will undermine security and
lead to catastrophe rather
than peace.
From this perspective it
becomes clear that those in
Israel who are willing to pay a
high price for an illusory
"peace" are in effect the war
party, and those who ad-
vocate a firm stand, without
further Balkanization of this
tiny strip of land, are the true
exponents of peace and
At any rate, thus far there
is no one to talk peace to.
Should Israel consent to go
into an international con-
ference on these issues, a con-
ference in which the USSR
and China, among others,
would participate, it would
expose itself to a ganging-up
against us, under threat of ac-
cepting a hostile international
dictate, or facing interna-
tional ostracism.
No, despite the flaunting of
slogans, peace is not the
monopoly of those who
misuse the word. To the con-
trary, as had been
demonstrated, their policies
can lead only to collapse of
Israel's security. They are
policies whose slogan should
be, "Peace Now, War
How much better a slogan
is: "Security Assures Peace!"

A BILL addressing the homeowners association concept
has been filed by Rep. Joe Titone (D., Coral Springs).
Thousands of homeowners who previously had no Florida
Statute to turn to could rely on tneseJaws if passed by the
1987 Florida Legislature. Currently, there is no statutory
regulation of homeowners associations. Homeowners
associations are groups, townhomes, villas or other
residential dwelling units to manage properly held in com-
mon by the members of the association.

forcibly delayed by illness or
bad weather. Nonetheless,
they always travel onward, as
if driven by a force over which
they have no control.
At first, Rudi and Toni seem
unusually close, but the bond
between mother and son is
complicated by the fact that
while Toni is Jewish, Rudi,
through his father, is half-
gentile. This dual heritage
gnaws at them both. Toni
alternately embraces and
chastises her son for identify-
ing himself as a Jew, lauds his
fine "gentile" manners one
moment and humiliates him
because of them at the next.
Appelfeld seems to be saying
that on this issue there is no
compromise. No Jew, however
assimilated, will find safety;
nor can the most sympathetic
gentile share the terror of that
time. Rudi, therefore, must
choose one road or the other,
as gentile or Jew. And as his
behavior grows progressively
more boorish, loud, and lewd
from one inn to the next, Rudi
appears to choose a path
sharply divergent from tile
doomed route of his mother.
Yet in the end, he does follow
her to a train embarking on
a final, unknown destination.
Written in spare, simple pro-
se with poetic cadences, the
novel reads like the darkest of
fairy tales; one only wishes
that this translation were as
smooth and subtle as the
renderings of Appelfeld's
firevious novels. Another
iterary comparison is also apt.
As in Greek tragedy, in a novel
by Appelfeld the reader always
knows what the outcome will
be. One wants, desperately, to
shake the characters and send
them on a different route. But
one cannot change history;
rather, Appelfeld insists, we
must bear its burden and its
guilt. In To The Land of the
Cattails, he has composed yet
another elegant variation on

Anti-Semitism or Vandalism?
The violence in Deerfield Beach, painted swastikas on a
Hollywood home, vulgarities printed on a Denver campus
structure, and a Philadelphia country club destruction, are
just but some of the sad highlines that echo across printed
and electronic media during the past month.
Could this be a reawakening of a hidden, bitter, festering
hate that lurks in the minds of sick, malicious anti-Semitic
degenerates, or perhaps young uneducated vandals?
Who brought about this rash of incidents, or better yet,
what has brought about this horrendous attack on
American Jewry?
My sense of judgment points to a number of recent
events in the American and World Jewry community that
could have ignited this terrorism. Perhaps the Pollard,
Waldheim, Linnas, Demjanjuk copy set the acts in motion.
Or the observance with its glaring publicity on Yom
HaShoah, complete with the Shoah presentation on PBS
could have been the match. Or still yet, the rash of PLO and
terrorist attacks, throughout the world rearing its ugly
way across the Atlantic ocean. Whatever the rhyme or
reason, there is really one answer. To stand up and be
counted. It is tough to be a Jew, but it is also an honor to be
Jewish and together we can and should get that message
across to this band of miscreats.
Last week the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale installed the officers and directors for the
1987-'88 term of office, and at that time, Sheldon S. Polish,
incoming president told the distinguished group that "Jews

tures to serve our young and old alike, but the foundation
to inform and educate the future leaders of our new and
growing community standing tall and proud.
The true spirit of Jewishness will prevail regardless of all
odds, but the odds will be greater in our favor if we join as
'One People, with One Destiny in One Community with One
Covenant' "

'Soviet Glasnost:9
A Policy in Name Only
"Glasnost:" Russian for
"openness." That's the cur-
rent buzzword in the Soviet
Union, used by the Soviets to
encourage a perception of a
new, more liberal and open
policy under the leadership of
Mikhail Gorbachev. For the
Jews of the Soviet Union,
however, "glasnost" has been
disappointing thus far.
Only 914 Jews were permit-
ted to leave the Soviet Union
in 1986, compared to 1,140 in
1985 and 51,000 in 1979.
Although our hopes were rais-
ed when Anatoly Scharansky
was released in February 1986
(on the eve of our 1986 Soviet
Jewry Plea), apprehension
prevailed concerning the situa-
tion of thousands of other
Soviet Jews and Prisoners-of-
Conscience (POCs).
Approximately 380,000
Soviet Jews are estimated to
have taken the first step in the
emigration process by re-
questing and receiving an af-
fidavit (VIZOV) from Israel.
About 11,000 members of this
group are "refuseniks" an
individual who has been refus-
ed an exit visa at least once
and often numerous times.
Many refuseniks have been
waiting as long as 15 years to
be reunited with families. In
April of 1986, a Moscow
specialist, lecturing a principal
Soviet propaganda body the
Znaniye Society
acknowledged that 10 to 15
percent of Soviet Jews cur-
rently would seek to emigrate.
Since the latest official Soviet
census numbers the Jewish
population at 1.8 million, that
specialist implicitly
acknowledged that between
180,000 and 270,000 Jews
could be expected to emigrate.
Yet official pronouncements
still talk about "a few thou-
sand" applications waiting to
be processed.
The good news was that
several prominent former
POCs and long-term
refuseniks were allowed to
emigrate during 1986.
However, these releases were
granted belatedly and
delivered with a cynical twist.
For example: Mikhail Shirman
waited for a needed transplant
from his sister, Inessa
Fleurova. Inessa was finally
granted permission to leave
the Soviet Union too late to
save her brother who died
David Goldfarb and his wife
were finally allowed to leave
the Soviet Union aboard the
private plane of Occidental
Petroleum Chairman Dr. Ar-
mand Hammer. Sixty-eight-
year-old Goldfarb was found to
be suffering from lung cancer
and offered tragic proof that
he had not received adequate
medical attention in the Soviet
Union. Yosef Begun was
released from prison as was
Vladimir Lifshitz neither
have been permitted to
emigrate. Alarming news con-
tinues to reach the West of the
physical abuse of several
Jewish prisoners, especially
Aleksei Magarik (whose father
went to Reykajavik to plead
for his son) and Yuli
As well, the religious vise
lias been tightened. Holding
sabbath services and holiday
celebrations, attending
religious study groups or
synagogue services, organiz-
ing private study groups and
meeting with foreigners, are
all basic rights as defined in
the Helsinki Accords of 1975
and reemphasized in the final
document of the 1983 Madrid
follow-up conference. Despite
this, holiday periods and
private Judaic religious study
continue to be prime targets of
official pressure. Soviet Jews
again found it difficult to
celebrate Passover in 1986
because of a shortage of mat-
zah. The Purim holiday was
marred in Riga by KGB raids
on private homes where
celebrations were being held
(Indianapolis travelers visited
some of these celebrants in
Riga last September). Jewish
educators have been warned
by government officials that
they are violating Soviet law
by teaching. The policy of
alleged "glasnost" has not
made it any easier for Jews in
the Soviet Union to practice or
study Judaism.
Still another blow at emigra-
tion to Israel was struck by the
issuance of the codification of
emigration decree issued by
the Supreme Soviet in
November. This decree
codified the strict practices
which had been operational
since 1980, allowing Jews to
leave only on the basis of fami-
ly reunification, rather than as
a fundamental human right. It
now fixed in law the narrow
definition of "family" as
parents, children and siblings.
This alone condemned hun-
dreds of thousands from every
applying for, much less receiv-
ing, permission to leave. The
new decree left Soviet
authorities with absolute
power to reject applications
for emigration and it ignored
many of the human rights pro-
visions of the Universal
Declaration on Human rights
and the Helsinki Accords, to
both of which the Soviet Union
is a signatory.
Nonetheless, the changes
which are occurring in Soviet
society are worth noting and
monitoring. While only 98
Jews were permitted to leave
the Soviet Union in January,
146 left in February, and 150
left during the first 15 days of
March. There have been no
new arrests of Jews since July
of 1986 and those who monitor
the level of state-sponsored
anti-Semitism have reported a
significant decrease. At the
same time, between 200 and
300 new applications to
emigrate from Jews who ap-
plied after the new emigration
decree went into effect, have
been refused.
It remains for the Soviet
Union to demonstrate that
there is substance to its much-
heralded promise of "open-
ness," as well as to show that
it lives up to its international
commitments. To do that, it
must free the Prisoners-of-
Conscience, grant visas to
thousands of refuseniks and
begin issuing visas to the hun-
dreds of thousands of Soviet
Jews who have applied for
emigration. If "glasnost" is to
be anything other than a myth
or an empty promise, it must
be backed up with action.
And it remains for us to do
our part. We must continue to
focus relentless Western at-
tention and pressure on this
issue and we must continue to
publicize the cases and fates of
individual refusenik families.

According to Jewish Federa-
tion President Sheldon S.
Polish, "The JDC is a living
testament to American
Jewry's concern for its
brethren and to our belief that
'all Jews are responsible for
one another.' With contribu-
tions from Jewish Federations
and welfare funds to the
United Jewish Appeal, the
JDC is able to provide people
like Gershon Wolpert with
welfare assistance, medical
and social services, old age
care, Jewish education,
technical training and
religious and cultural
In Israel, where the popula-
tion of old people is growing
faster than anywhere else in
the world, the JDC is there to
help. And it's also there to
close the "social gap" for the
10 percent of Israel's popula-
tion caught in a cycle of social
and cultural deprivation.

The JDC began its Parent-
Child Day Care Program for
Israel's disadvantaged because
it knows that children who
spend their first years in
economic and cultural poverty
are likely to grow up to repeat
the pattern. Today there are
52 sites in community centers
in Israel where over 3,000 tod-
dlers have been loved and cod-
dled as their mothers and
fathers were taught important
parenting skills.
In Cracow, Poland and other
Eastern European cities, the
JDC provides kosher canteens
for the few remnants of once
thriving Jewish populations.

Relations Strained As Justice Dep't.
Strips Bartesch of Citizenship
relations between Austria and
the United States were further
strained this week over the
case of Martin Bartesch, a
Rumanian-born alleged former
guard at the Mauthausen con-
centration camp who, stripped
of his American citizenship for
war crimes, came here claim-
ing the right to reside in
Austrian authorities,
angered by the U.S. Justice
Department's recent ban on
the entry of President Kurt
Waldheim because of his alleg-
ed complicity in Nazi
atrocities, are further incensed
by the failure of the Americans
to inform them in advance that
they would allow Bartesch to
go to Austria with an
American passport.
HE WAS not officially
deported. His U.S. citizenship
was not revoked until the day
he arrived in Austria. There is
no treaty between the U.S.
and Austria regarding the
deportation of undesirable
aliens. Austria therefore con-
siders Bartesch still an
American citizen and plans to
return him to the U.S.
Bartesch, who is accused of,
among other things, the
murder of a French Jew in
1943, was declared persona
non grata here. A warrant was
issued for his arrest. He gave
himself up at a police station
Monday and was formally ar-
rested to be held for
"Austria does not want to
get the image of a haven for
Nazi war criminals," Interior
Minister Karl Blecha declared.
A spokesman for the Foreign
Ministry said that the
American action was "de-

Reviewed by Leon T. Hadar
Renata Adler's analysis of
the 1985 Sharon-Tiwi* and
Westmoreland-CBS libel suits
is perhaps the toughest, most
pungent piece of media
criticism ever written by a
journalist. It suggests that the
press will go to almost any
length and any cost (of
lawyers) to defend its errors.
The author argues quite con-
vincingly in this masterpiece
of courtroom reporting in the
tradition of Hannah A remit
that questionable methods
were employed against both
the American and Israeli
generals by journalists who
have not yet expressed embar-
rassment or apology for their
Adler, a celebrated
American-Jewish writer and
novelist, who covered the Six-
Day War and the civil rights
movement for the New Yorker
(where an early version of this
book appeared), uses the two
libel trials to examine the
dubious behavior of the two
powerful media organizations
and the strict requirements of
American libel law.
The author does not hide
that her sympathies lie with
the plaintiffs, General William
C. Westmoreland, the former
commander of U.S. forces in
Vietnam, and General Ariel
Sharon, the former Israeli
Defense Minister. She sug-
gests that with the obstacles
standing before a person who
feels libeled the two had a little
chance of winning their cases,
and concludes that there is a
need for a revision in
American libel law, which in-
itially supported dissent and
diversity against oppression
by a monolithic power.
However, concludes Adler,
as the cases of Westmoreland
and Sharon prove, the farmers
of the law could not "have
foreseen that in modern life it
is the press itself that has, to a
degree, become unitary,
powerful and monolithic, sup-
pressing the very diversity
that was the purpose of the
First Amendment."
American-Jews and sup-
porters of Israel, who in 1982
followed with great concern
the American press coverage
of the Israeli war in Lebanon,
will find special interest in this
book. ,
The Sharon case, as
presented by Adler brought to
the forefront of public (and
media) attention some of the
accusations by Jewish groups
in this country regarding what
they considered to be the un-
fair treatment of the Jewish
state by the media, and in par-
ticular by television news,
especially following the
slaughter of Palestinians in the
refugee camps of Sabra and
Indeed, the Sharon v. Time
case had its origin in a cover
story in the February 21,1983,
issue of Time, "Verdict on the
Massacre," which dealt with
the conclusion of the Kahan
commission formed to place
responsiblity for the Sabra and
ahatila massacre. Time, in its
report, suggested that a non-
published appendix contained
details of a visit General
Sharon paid to the family of
the Phalangist leader Bashir
Gemayel a day after Gemayel's
assassination. According to
Time, Sharon, a few hours
before the massacre,
"reportedly discussed with the
Gemayels the need for the
Phalangists to take revenge
for the assassination of
Bashir.. ."
Sharon, not surprisingly,
sued the magazine, and many
of the General's supporters in
America argued that the case
pointed again to the "anti-
Israeli" position of Time.
Ironically, Adler suggests,
that the main villain in the
story, is no other than a
former Israeli army officer,
David Halevy.
Halevy, a member of the
magazine's Jerusalem bureau,
provided the information,
which he atributed to "a highly
reliable source." It alleged
that Sharon explained to the
Gemayel's "that he
understood their need to take
revenge for the assassination
of Bashir and assured them
that the Israeli army would
neither hinder them nor try to
stop them." That information
eventually served as the basis
for the controversial piece.
Hence, "a serious news
magazine, Time, and an enor-
mous corporate edifice, Time
Inc., were poised, like an im-
probably ballerina, on a single
toe, David Halevy," writes
Adler. Using the court pro-
ceedings, some of which she
attended, Adler raises serious
questions about Halevy's per-
sonal integrity and profes-
sional ethics. In her own
words, "there was something
disorienting about Halevy .
any number of things he said
gave one a little jolt, or double
take of, wait a minute, just too
late to catch up with whatever
he might say next."
Halevy's testimony raised
major questions about the
Israeli journalist's personal
and political bias against
Sharon, his previous false
reporting (about former Prime
Minister Menachem Begin *s
health), and most importantly
his lack of ability to distinguish
between fact and fantasy.
As it emerged that Halevy is
turning into a "weak toe,"
Time's lwayers, from the firm
of Cravath, Swaine and Moore,
decided to follow a new
strategy, implying that the
Kahan commission ignored
and even suppressed evidence
regarding Sharon's role in the
massacre. That backfired, as
the Israeli government (head-
ed at that time by Labor's
Shimon Peres, a political rival
to Sharon), decided to release
to the court the secret Appen-
dix, which proved that Sharon
did not give any "green light"
to the Phalangists.
Adler Characterizes the ver-
dict as a "moral victory" for
Sharon, although it was cer-
tainly a mixed result from a
legal point of view. The jury
decided that the controversial
paragraph was false and
defamatory, but not malicious

Time was embarrassed, and in
1986 it even admitted, as part
of a settlement before an
Israeli court, both that it had
been wrong about the secret
appendix and that there had
been no discussion between
Sharon and the Phalangists
about revenge.
Adler's book is "must"
reading not only because of the
interesting legal questions it
raises and the important
"Israeli angle." The study
forces us to focus on the pro-
blems relating to the growing
political power of the media in
this country, and its relevance
to foreign policy issues, in-
cluding Israel and the Middle
East. In a way, an American
