Israel received 489 files on
Nazi war criminals from the
confidential archives of the
United Nations containing
the names of 36,000-40,000
Nazi war criminals and their
collaborators. The files were
handed to Binyamin
Netanyahu, Israel's Am-
bassador to the United Na-
tions, who went with his
aides to the UN archives in
midtown Manhattan.

tempt to return Martin

Japan Supports Boycott: No Trade With Israel
If you're in the market for
a Toyota or a Nissan, a Mit-
subishi television or a Sanyo
recorder, you can simply
meander over to your
favorite showroom, select the
item, arrange payment and
leave with your purchase. If
you live in Israel, however,
you have a problem. These
companies, which rank
among Japan's major ex-
porters, either refuse to sell
directly to Israel or engage
only in third-party dealing.
Among other Japanese
manufacturers that openly
discriminate against free
trade with Israel are Sharp,
National, Mochida, Mazda,
Itoh, Nippon Steel, Hitachi,
Panasonic and Toshiba.
Japanese ships don't call on
Israeli ports; Japanese planes
don't land at Israeli airports;
Japanese banks with their
tremendous available invest-
ment capital don't finance
trade with Israel.
Why would a major global
power, Japan shut out a
viable market, Israel, thus
displaying, on the surface at
least, an oddly conceived
economic policy?
"The whole trade relation-
ship (between Israel and
Japan) can be spelled out in
three letters OI L," ex-
plained Michael Curtis of
Rutgers University, an ex-
pert on Israeli-Japanese rela-
tions and a member of
American Academics for
Peace in the Middle East.
Japan is more dependent on
Arab oil than any other in-
dustrialized nation. Although
they are trying to reduce that
dependency, the Japanese
need Arab oil. And unless the
price of oil goes down, Curtis
holds little expectation of a
significant Israel Japan trade
Japan, according to U.S.
government sources and the
AJCongress, adheres to the
Arab boycott and, in fact, in-
terprets it more stringently
than any other industrialized
nation. When prodded by the
U.S. State Department,
Japanese officials insisted
that their trade policy is a
"non-governmental" issue.
A reliable Israeli source
noted that Japanese officials
claim, "The government of
Japan does not exercise any
influence over the economic
sector which act independent-
ly of government dictates.
The opposite is true."
Officially, Japan maintains
that it advocates free trade.
Yet in the November 1986
ADL Bulletin, Kenneth
Jacobsen and Jess Hordes
reported: "It is not uncom-
mon for Japanese firms ap-
proached by potential Israeli
customers to inform them
openly that, due to the Arab
boycott, they are unable to
supply the desired items."
Israel is eager to establish
"free trade" with Japan,
even in the face of the
American experience, which
clearly underscores Japan's
protectionist economic policy.

Israel's Ambassador to the UN Reports .. .
Nations More Positive Toward Israel

"If I can make a confession
... it ain't that bad."
His gray eyes twinkle, and
the smile broadens and he
chuckles and it is evident that
Benjamin Netanyahu
thoroughly enjoys his work.
Serving as Israel's Am-
bassador to the United Na-
tions certainly isn't an easy
task. When a crucial vote con-
cerning Israel comes up in the
Security Council or in the
General Assembly, Netanyahu
is acutely aware that he may
be in for some vitriolic verbal
abuse from some of his col-
leagues, especially the
representatives of some of the
anti-Israel nations such as
Iran, Libya or Syria.
He revealed that away from
the spotlight of public sessions
his contact with ambassadors
of such antagonistic nations
varies little from their public
What he has perceived over
the period he has served as
Ambassador since 1984 is the
improved position of Israel in
the world. He notes that
negative votes against Israel
are declining, resolutions
which once would have pass-
ed without hesitation now do
not pass, or at least not as
readily and that today many
nations, at least African,
Asian and Latin countries,
use the UN as a place to
speed contact in order to
reestablish their ties with
The.Ambassador sees three
reasons for this change. .
First is the impact of declin-
ing oil markets. This is not, he
hastens to clarify, the declin-
ing price but rather the lack of
a stranglehold on the world
market that the Arab oil pro-
ducers have had. With the loss
of such a strangle-hold, many
countries are not longer afraid
and wish to reestablish rela-
tions with Israel.
The second is that the entire
world now recognizes the close
ties Israel has with the U.S.
Thirdly, there is a shifting
attitude toward terrorism with
more nations now admitting
that terrorism is a "disease."
It is a form of welfare directed
against all democracies and if
not stopped will have
disastrous consequences.
A recognized authority on
terrorism, he has no hesita-
tion on voicing his thoughts.
He gesticulates and his voice
rises when he recalls that for
20 years terrorists "have got-
ten away with literally
murder. They've been sen-
ding their killers to our air-
ports; bombing our airplanes
out of the sky and bombing
downtown capitols; killing
and murdering diplomats,
kidnapping hostages."
Too often, he contends, the
murderers succeeded in their
mission because of the lame
excuse, "we don't know who
these people are."
Such an attitude is ridiculous
in his mind.
*Of course we know. These
are not individuals, they are
not even organizations.
"These are front groups,
organized, launched, spon-
sored, equipped, sheltered
and trained by a handful of
sovereign governments. If
you want to deal with ter-
rorism you have to address
the problem of terrorist
Benjamin Netanyahu
Once so recognized, a varie-
ty of measures can be taken:
Economic, political, military.
He cites America's action
against Libya. Many voiced
fears that such action would
automatically launch more
violence. Exactly the opposite

Libya and such other ter-
rorism capitals such as

While admitting there are
differences and debates bet-
ween Likud and Labor, the
Ambassador believes the
degree'of disagreement on the
substance and proceedings of
an international conference
idea is much greater outside of
Israel than within the nation
The key differences lie on
how to approach the issue of
direct negotiations.
Netanyahu describes their
desire for an umbrella, which
Hussein would prefer to be a
collapsible umbrella, while the
Soviet Union believes it should
be firm, that a conference
should have an influence and
direct role in negotiations
The USSR would be eager
for an international con-
ference as a way to re-enter
the Mideast; they want max-
imum influence in the con-
ference while the Americans
would like minimal
Syria would like such a con-
ference to be used as a means
to dictate a political arrange-
ment to Israel. They would
prefer this to be "sort of a
ganging-up, a pre-cooked ar-
rangement rammed down
Israel's throat."
The struggle between the
two parties, he declares,
makes for "wonderful media
copy, but it takes away the
attention from the fact there
are so many potential
obstacles before such a
gathering could be
The spectre of the Kurt
Waldheim revelations hangs
over the UN. It is Netanyahu's
feeling that people are embar-
rassed by the fact that while
Waldheim reigned as
Secretary General from his
38th floor executive suite, files
accusing him of some of the
worst crimes in WWII reposed
in cartoons crammed into cor-
ners in the basement of that
same world famous glass
The Waldheim file was one
of 40,000 that had been given
to the UN by the Allies in 1949
and has since been sheltered
from research and scrutinizing
by historians and scholars for
40 years.
The UN refuses to open
these files; Israel has asked the
support of countries in the
Allied commission who produc-
ed the archive. Australia,
Holland and other countries
have linked up with Israel and
Secretary of State George
Shultz to opt for opening the
The archives was establish-
ed by Churchill in 1943 for
the twin purposes of justice
and history. One cannot have
justice if criminals cannot be
brought to trial and "you
cannot have history because
historians do not write secret
Opening of the files would
permit historians to shed im-
portant new light on what, in
Netanyahu's opinion is the
most pivotal event of this cen-
tury, and perhaps many cen-
turies to come.
It is in this same vein that he
views the trials of John Dem-
janjuk as Ivan the Terrible and
Klaus Barbie, the "Butcher of
Lyon'' as immensely
He deplores the tendency to
try to shake off the past even
to revise the past by saying the

GAYLE AND JIM BARR of the 'Design of the Times Company
of Coral Springs have generously volunteered their services to
design the new Federation office to be located in Coral Springs.
The Barr's will be helping to design an office which wiU meet th*
needs of the ever-growing Jewish population of Coral Springs.
The office space, donated by Kuhn and Associates, will offer the
members of the Coral Springs community, many of the services of
Federation agencies including counseling and family life educa-

the Barr's for their dedication and devotion to Judaism.

very little about the
The trials afford an oppor-
tunity for witnesses the vic-
tims and the perpetrators to
produce a historical memory
that can serve justice and
history in our time.
We are the last generation
that can produce such a record
and ensure that the memory of
humanity remains etched with
these important events.
He also reflected upon the
impact of the Six-Day War,
which occurred just 20 years
Until that fateful June, the
survival of Israel was seen as
something uncertain. Then the
position changed completely
and permanently.
It was now impossible for an
potential Arab foe to attack
the population centers. It
became so difficult that when
the Yom Kippur War came in
1973 Jordan did not enter the
combat. Because they stayed
out of the war, Israel was able
to repel the surprise attack on
two fronts and within three
weeks reversed an impossible
situation and were at the gates
of Cairo and Damascus.
As he told his audience,
"strength repels, while
weakness attracts" enemies.
Within the UN, the Soviet
posture is one of greater
moderation in tone, he
observes. Rhetorical flourishes
are far less frequent.
With the USSR so persistent
in showing a "new face," with
a new Soviet approach and
policy, Netanyahu calls for it
to be demonstrated first in the
field of human rights.
Human rights is inextricably
bound to the question of Soviet
policies as a whole. This, he
told those at the annual
meeting, is demonstrated by
the fact that where Soviet
leaders gather whether in
Paris, London, Geneva or
other world capitals the
question arises as to what ac-
tion will be taken with the
Soviet Jews who wish to leave.
The Soviets understand they

Campaign '88 Command to Excellence North Broward Way
From Harold Oshry
Editor's Note: Harold
Oshry, 1988 General campaign
chairman, recently returned
from a selected national leader-
ship meeting in Chicago. At
that time, he had the distinc-
tion of addressing the coun-
try's top campaign lay leaders
and executive professionals on
the importance of Special Gifts
programs. Harold is also the
Special Gifts Chairman for the
National IIJA Region 5 for the

munity, is the beginning of an
expansion plan for our local
Federation/UJA agencies and
beneficiaries, with the ground-
breaking and building of the
new David Posnack Hebrew
Day School complex on the
JCC campus, and the soon to

land acquisition for sponsored
government-subsidized low-
income housing. This plus the
finalization of the new branch
office location on North
University Drive in Coral Spr-
ings, serving that area with
social service and other ac-
tivities, are but some of the
new and forward-looking work
programs that the Federation
family of contributors have
helped make possible. But that
is only the beginning.
This year marks a momen-
tous occasion for it is both the
20th Anniversary year of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale and the 40th
glorious year of the State of
Israel. We, of course, hope

Focus, Viewpoints, Opinions, and Commentaries
Lip Service .. .
To talk about the Holocaust is not enough to understand
it. Nor is thinking about it enough unless one sensitizes
himself to its human suffering. Unfortunately, the sur-
vivors will not always be among us, and the printed word
becomes emotionless facts.
We must realize that the Holocaust is not only a Jewish
issue. Clearly, Jews were the victims, but the event is an in-
credible portrait of a world, mankind, gone mad where in-
sanity was the rule. An unparalled evil was unleashed, and
the world responded, if not with collaboration than with a
bitter silence. Unquestioningly, it must never be allowed to
happen again, but the lesson to be learned is that it did hap-
pen in the first instance.
What are we doing about it? What can we do about it? In
response to the first question, the answer is very little
when the community is considered as a whole. Yes, a
Holocaust museum and Zachor committee were establish-
ed, and the Bureau of Jewish Education has an educational
program, but these involve very few from the community.
More people came to Yom Hashoa at Greenwood
Cemetery than in past years. But the estimate was 600,
which represents about one percent of the Jewish popula-
tion of the metropolitan area. Where was most of the other
99 percent? Were they all occupied with more important
Where was the lay leadership of the synagogues,
temples, and other organizations? Only a handful was pre-
sent. Where was most of the rabbinate? Their absence
seems to cause more consternation and draw more com-
ments than anything else. No wonder to some extent that
so few attend. The leadership sets a very poor and disturb-
ing example.
Imagine if several thousand people attended. It would be
a major event on the news and not just a 15 second filler.
What would it say and mean for and about the community?
How many people have visited the Holocaust museum at
the Jewish Community Center? Very few. A new pictorial
exhibit of children of the Holocaust just opened. The
response to the Federation mailing of 750 notices? About
25 people came to the opening.
Undoubtedly, simply attending or not attending a
Holocaust event cannot and should not be the sole measure
of concern. Yet, it does give some indication that we do not
want to make this a part of our lives. It is understandable
but unacceptable. We may and sometimes cannot see the
effect of the Holocaust on us, but every Jew has been scar-
red. It may not be the loss of family. Yet, the loss of a
culture and the heart of a people is no insignificant matter.
What would world Jewry be like today if the six million had
not perished? What would our own lives be like?
Every day the Holocaust fades into distant memory. It
becomes less an emotion and merely a dot on the historical
matrix. What does it mean to talk of one and a half million
children? What does it mean to talk of gas chambers unless
one can understand what these wretched victims felt, the
total degradation, the beatings and sinister murders, the
literal butchering of the lives of family members before
one's very eyes, the total loss of the least sense of the digni-
ty and sanctity of life? What must these people have felt
and thought? Everything they ever cared for and loved
coming to a grotesque end. Can we even come close to
understanding? Have we even tried?
We must learn about the Holocaust, even if it is only
through reading. We must openly face its horrors, we must
teach it to our children. We must make it a topic of conver-
sation not only among Jews but among the non-Jewish
community as well. Jews may be the most challenged peo-
ple in the world. We are expected to know the history of
the Middle East and Israel, to recognize anti-Semitism, to
be able to deal with assimilation. And we must know and
understand the Holocaust, for ourselves, our children and
the world. It is the past, but what it teaches us can be the
hope for the future.

The Greatest
Mystery of Jason's Tomb
HAIFA Every tourist
map of Jerusalem pinpoints a
spot in the middle of the
Rehavia residential area as the
site of Jason's Tomb, and
many guide books add the
precise address between 8
and 12 Alfasi Street, which is
no more than a five-minute
walk from the Sheraton Plaza
Hotel. Having been raised on
tales of the Argonauts of old
and their leader, Jason, who
retrieved the Golden Fleece,
we determined to visit the
hero's tomb on our next trip to
First, of course, we did some
reading to prepare for the ex-
perience. How did Jason end
up in Jerusalem? It did not
take very long to be reminded
that Jason of Golden Fleece
fame was a character in Greek
mythology, and if myths have
tombs, they are not of this
The name of Jason, it ap-
pears, was fairly common
among semi-assimilated Jews
during the period of the Se-
cond Temple. We learn also
that Jason of Cyrene was a
historian who wrote a five-
volume history of the times of
Antiochus and Judah Mac-
cabee. While the work in its
entirety has not been preserv-
ed, the anonymous author of
the Second Book of Maccabees
in the Apocrypha informs us
that his own tale of the events
of the time is in effect a
readers' digest condensation
of the five volumes. From the
text it is obvious that Jason
was a pious Jew, but in agree-
ment with the civilizing and
"Modern" influences of the
Greek way of life on the Jews.
Could this be the man buried in
But wait, as we have noted,
the name was a common one.
Another record shows that the
first Jew in Rome was none
other than a Jason ben
Eleazar, sent there as a per-
sonal envoy of Judah Mac-
cabee in the year 161 BCE.
Did he return home to a hero's
There were even more pro-
minent Jasons during that
period. One was Jason who
served as High Priest from 175
to 171 BCE. He, too, favored
Hellenization, and transform-
ed Jerusalem into a city-state,
renamed Antioch. He in-
troduced Greek educational in-
stitutions and popularized the
gymnasium which, according
to one account, quickly
"superseded the Temple as the
focus of social life, to the deep
dismay of those loyal to Jewish
tradition." However, Jason
the High Priest fell out of
favor because he was not ex-
tremist enough, was deposed,
and fled the city. In 168, hear-
ing a false rumor that An-
tiochus had died in Egypt, he
attempted a comeback. The
king returned, suppressed the
insurrection, and put into ef-
fect all the anti-religious
decrees which led ultimately to
the Maccabean revolt and the
festival of Chanukah.
Real estate developers in our
times in Rehavia long avoided
the high and stony mound off
Redak Street, since it ap-
peared to be solid rock, and too
expensive to excavate. Many
beautiful homes were built in
the neighborhood, but in 1956
one businessman decided to ac-
quire the tract and build an
apartment house there. Work
began under the watchful eye
of Uri Fritz Levisohn, a
neighbor and an archeology
buff. When the diggers came
across the first traces of what
turned out to be an almost
perfectly preserved
mausoleum, hewn out of solid
rock, Levisohn sprang into ac-
tion. There are too many in-
stances where building con-
tractors conveniently conceal
and destroy such finds so as
not to interfere with their pro-
jects. As a result of Levisohn's
Carl Alpert
energetic protests, the con-
struction was called off, and he
himself participated in the
subsequent excavation, reveal-
ing the tomb, its vestibule, a
double fore-court, a central
pillar (apparently damaged in
an earthquake) and an im-
pressive four-sided pyramidal
roof, such as are seen on other
period tombs.
The investigators who
entered the tomb found a char-
coal drawing on the plastered
wall, showing an oared war-
ship pursuing two other ships.
A figure with bow and arrow
at the ready was seen on the
prow of the largest. Was this
On a side wall was a small
seven-branched menorah, a
sketch of a deer and an
Aramaic inscription reading:
"A mighty dirge for Jason, my
brother, who has built thyself a
tomb; elder, rest in peace." A
second inscription, in Greek,
enjoins the mourners not to
weep, but to "rejoice, ye the
living." It must have been a
wealthy family to have been

Because You Care So Very Much
In Madison, Wisconsin, third
and fourth grade students at
Sunday Shalom contributed
In Savannah, Georgia,
students at the Community
Hebrew Academy came up
with $39.13.
And in New York City, three
brothers held two seders at
their restaurant and collected
more than $11,000.
These were some of the con-
tributions received by the
American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC),
a major Federation/UJA
beneficiary agency to help
repair the damage done to
Temple Neve Shalom in Istan-
bul, Turkey, during a
murderous attack last
The attack occurred during
Sabbath services, and 22 wor-
shippers were killed. After be-
ing closed for repairs, the
synagogue reopened with a
special prayer service May 20.
"JDC began receiving con-
tributions to help the Istanbul
Jewish community immediate-
ly after the attack," said JDC
President Heinz Eppler. "This
was a spontaneous outpouring
of support on the part of
American Jews outraged by
this vicious assault."
This Passover, Jacques,
Samuel, and Albert Capsouto,
owners of Capsouto Freres
Restaurant in Manhattan, held
two seders to benefit the
synagogue. The proceeds from
the dinners, augmented by ad-
ditional donations, provided a
total contribution of $11,449.
"It is fitting that the Cap-
soutos raised these funds dur-
ing Passover, one of the an-
cient symbols of Jewish unity,
and the holiday that most
traditionally brings the entire
family together," Mr. Eppler
The Capsoutos have special
ties to the Turkish synagogue.
Their father was a native of
Istanbul, who later settled in
Lyons, France. The local
synagogue was quite poor, the
elder Capsouto had arranged
for the donation of Torah
scrolls from Temple Neve
Shalom. For the brothers, the
seder benefit was a way of
repaying the Istanbul con-
gregation's earlier generosity.
Other contributions, coupled
with a grant from JDC, came
to $25,000. "It was especially
heartening to receive contribu-
tions from young students,"
said JDC Executive Vice
President Ralph I. Goldman.
"It shows that today's young
people are deeply concerned
about their fellow Jews
anywhere in the world."
Grand Rabbi David Asseo of
Turkey expressed his com-
munity's gratitude for the con-
tributions, noting that the
costs of restoring the temple
far exceeded available funds.

Federation's Extended Family Plans For Future
Our present system of rais-
ing funds is the product of a
slow evolution in which the
needs of American Jews, and
Jews in Israel and around the
world are constantly read-
justed and balanced, for the
ultimate good of us all.
The Federation/UJA cam-
paign is much more than a
drive to collect money, central
though that is. Our campaign
educates the community about
its own needs and involves our
residents who might otherwise
not be aware of those needs. It
calls forth leadership and
starts people thinking and
planning for the future. It
builds up our community and
creates links with other com-
munities. It turns a mass of in-
dividuals into an extended
family. It strengthens our con-
viction that we are one people,
with one destiny, and gives us
the means to act on it.
As we complete the wrap-up
of our 1987 Federation/UJA
campaign, I realize how true
these words are because we
Sheldon S. Polish
acted together as a communi-
ty, we provided a special brand
of education that both inform-
ed and enlightened our
Federation 22-area com-
munities and we created the
plans for the future.
How is this all accomplished?
Federation/UJA raised a
record $6.5 million, the largest
ever in the 20th year history,
to help provide the vital social
welfare, medical and
humanitarian programs at
CAJE Summer
Institute Plan
Rabbi Norman Lipson,
Director of the Institute for
Jewish Studies of the Central
Agency for Jewish Education
has announced the Summer In-
stitute for Jewish Studies Pro-
gram which will take place
during the months of June, Ju-
ly and August at the Jewish
Federation Building, 4200 Bis-
cayne Boulevard. These
courses are being offered to
teachers in Jewish Schools
within South Florida and are
also open to non-teachers in-
terested in furthering their
Jewish knowledge.
Among the many courses to
be offered are: Responsa
Literature; History of Anti-
Semitism; Contemporary
Jewish Poetry; Bible; as well
as Jewish Values Through

lands. Federation, through
special allocations, will help to
complete the structuring of
the new David Posnack
Hebrew Day School building
on the JCC campus, and a new
beginning for the youth of the
community. Federation and
government sponsored funds
will help to build much needed
housing units for the elderly,
and have already provided
specially equipped vans to
transport that group of our
population that depends on the
very existence of social service
and welfare facilities. This plus
the 1,000 hot kosher luncheons
served weekly, the spiritual
and emotion building work of
the Gathering Place, the
religious and mind-building
programs of CAJE, and the
arts, sports, cultural activities
of the JCC, plus a myriad of
agencies and beneficiaries and
constituencies at work and we
are the true epitome of the ex-
tended "Federation Family"!
Of this we can and should be
proud. Of this we can stand tall
along with the other major
American Federation com-
munities. As the saying goes,
we have come a long way, but
we still have a long way to go.
In the coming months, under
the guidance of Harold L.
Oshry, and his campaign
cabinet, the planning and
organizing will begin for the
1988 Federation/UJA cam-
paign. All of the wonderful
life-enhancing, life-giving, life-
enriching services mentioned
could not and would not hap-
pen if not for the Jewish com-
munity's major philanthropic
drive the only fund-raising
body that raises millions of
dollars to help millions of peo-
ple through humanitarian
Let us all pledge both our
time, effort and generosity to
help Harold and his dedicated
corps of volunteers raise the
heartfelt gifts necessary to
achieve our needs. Let us not
take the campaign for granted,
because we gave only a few
months ago, even in the same
calendar year, that it is not
necessary to give again.

Judaica High School Student
Selected For World
Youth Assembly in Israel
Michael Frieser, son of Paul
and Carol Frieser of Planta-
tion has been selected to repre-
sent the Fort Lauderdale
youth community at the se-
cond World Youth Assembly in
Israel this summer. The Youth
Assembly, which is sponsored
by United Jewish Appeal and
the American Jewish Forum is
a ten day program dealing
with issues in the American
and Israeli youth communities.
Frieser, chosen because of
his dedication to Jewish
organizations in North
Broward county, is vice-
president of the Southern
Branch of the Judaica High
School of North Broward, is
serving his second year as
president of Melech chapter
BBYO in Plantation, is council
vice-president for BBYO, and
serves as youth representative
to the Federation's Communi-
ty Relations Council.
The World Youth Assembly
is designed to stimulate 100
young men and women from
the United States and 100
young people from Israel who
have been to Israel before and
have demonstrated commit-
ment to the Jewish people and
exhibit leadership ability.
"This is not a standard sum-
mer program in Israel" ex-
plained Sharon S. Horowitz,
Principal of the Judaica High
School. "Delegates are chosen
with extreme care. The
Assembly is an effort at
mutual and self discovery. The
bonds that unite American and
Israeli youth are ancient and
powerful. These young men
and women have much to learn
from each other."
Michael Frieser
Equally as exciting is the
fact that this is the first year
that For Lauderdale will have
a representative at the World
Youth Assembly. Michael is a
recipient of the Judaica High
School incentive scholarship
which is given in recognition of
his participation in the Judaica
High School of North
Broward. Upon his return to
the United States he plans to
share his participation in the

Japan Supports Boycott
Continued from Page 1
for which data are available,
Israel's exports to Japan
totalled $210 million, primari-
ly in uncut diamond and raw
materials Japan traded about
the same amount with Israel.
The figures are "negligible in
proportion to the foreign
trade of each country," accor-
ding to Jacobsen and Hordes.
Clearly, Israel wants to ex-
pand its markets. Japan is a
reasonable target. Con-
sumers both business and
personal have needs Israeli
manufacturers could meet
and dollars to spend. For
Israel consumption. Japan
produces desirable articles at
reasonable prices. It seems
like a simple matter of in-
troducing the two parties to
one another and waiting for
the wedding.
"Trade policy is not the
issue," said one official Israeli
representative who declined
to be named. "It's the com-
plexity of relations between
Israel and Japan.
"Japan is a developed coun-
try, one of the biggest
markets in the world. (A
trade relationship) would
show a sign of acceptance.
For Israel, it's a question of
principle. We don't need the
cars; we import German cars,
American cars. But that
Toyota does not export to us
is a (sore point). We don't
want to be discriminated
The point is well taken.
Still, recognition is probably
not the primary motivating
factor in the campaign Israel
has undertaken After all,
Japan does maintain formal
diplomatic relations with
Israel. China, on the other
hand, which engages in trade
with Israel, does not.
Noteworthy is that China's
. other Mideast trade is not
suffering. It is expected that
Japan's economic position
vis-a-vis Arab nations would
not suffer either.
One possible block to
friendlier Japanese-Israeli
relations is attitudinal.
"Japan's attitude toward the
Arab-Israeli conflict, which is
somewhat sympathetic to the
Arab side, especially since the
Yom Kippur War and the
subsequent oil crisis, should
not be interpreted only in
terms of Japan's thirst for
Arab oil or ever-increasing
trade with Arab markets,"
noted Akifumi Ikeda, of the
Institute of Developing
Economies in Tokyo. "The
sympathy of quite a large
part of the Japanese popula-
tion tends to lie with the
Palestinian Arab refugees
... (because of Israel's) conti-
nuing 'military occupation' in
the 'territories,' which tend
to stimulate the Japanese in-
ner guilt consciousness as
past expansionists."
Analysis of a survey by The
Yomiuri Shimbun conducted
last fall revealed that the
Japanese ranked Israel as the
second least trustworthy
country among a list of 30 na-
tions that included the United
States, Great Britain,
Austria, Iran, North Korea
and Vietnam.
American Jewish leaders,
perhaps prodded by Israeli of-
ficials, are pressuring Japan's
trading company represen-
tatives of whom at least
one is Jewish and Jewish
firms who do business with
Japan to discontinue their
trade until the nefarious
discriminatory Middle East
trade policy is rectified. At
the very least, a growing
awareness of Japan's trading
patterns is eroding con-
fidence in that nation's
friendly alliance with the
Meanwhile, the only Israeli
goods that appear in Japan
are those that country needs.

ficial said. "When there is no

The Greatest Mystery of Jason's Tomb
Continued from Page 4- '
able to afford such a tomb.
There is a date, but in-
complete: "On the 24th of
Ellul, year .." Human bones,
pottery and coins of the
Hasmonean period were found
and removed. It is believed
that the tomb was build during
the reign of King Alexander
Yannai of the Hasmonean
dynasty, who reigned from 103
to 76 BCE.
What a magnificent place to
visit, but when we got to Alfasi
Street we found the premises
padlocked, with no sign in-
dicating when it is open for
visitors. Mrs. Aharon Rousso,
who has lived across the street
at 15 Alfasi Street for many
years, told us there had once
been a guard, and fixed
visiting hours, but these had
been discontinued. Visitors
like us come from time to time,
and then go away
The concierge at the
Sheraton Plaza made a
number of calls on our behalf,
but was unable to locate
anyone who could open the
tomb up for visitors. An Arab
gardener, working on the site.
told us that his boss was a man
from the municipality by the
name of Haham.
And so the great mystery of
Jason's tomb is: Who has the
keys to the site? It appears
that only a Haham, a wise
man, knows the answer.

At the Women's Division Annual Meeting and Installation ...
The Women's Division An-
nual Meeting and Installation
is traditionally one of the
highlights of the year, an op-
portunity to acknowledge the
achievements of the current
year as well as mark the tran-
sition from one year to the
next. By all accounts, the 1987
Annual Meeting'and Installa-
tion Luncheon, chaired by
Pearl Reinstein, was one of the
warmest and most memorable
occasions for all who attended.
Outgoing Women's Division
President Esther Lerner took
a moment to reflect on her
term of office. "For me, the
past two years have been rich
with personal associations and
a wealth of opportunities for
growth," noted Lerner. "My
hope is that each of you will
also find, that your life has
become more meaningful
because of Women's Division,
and that giving of yourself has
become a privilege."
It was clear that those in at-
tendance shared Lemer's feel-
ings, as she set the tone for the
transition from her Presidency
to that of incoming President
Alvera Gold. "I leave you now,
knowing how ably your incom-
ing President will pick up
every challenge, and that I can
honestly assure her that she
will find loyal and willing
workers waiting to assist her.
With those words, Esther
Lerner was relieved of her
duties as Women's Division
President, and was given the
honor of installing the
1987/1988 Officers and Board
of Directors of the Women's
Division of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauder-
dale, including the installation
of Alvera Gold as President
and Charlotte Padek as Cam-
paign Chairman.

tion president Sheldon S.

tor Kenneth B. Bierman.
Gross, active in countless
civic and philanthropic
endeavors, including the
Woodmont Lodge of B'nai
B'rith, served for 35 years
as Dr. Fox's accountant in
New York and Florida and
was a close personal friend.
In making the presentation,
he indicated that Louis Fox
was a remarkable human
being, always concerned
with the welfare of his
fellowman, knowing no
bounds to his commitment
and providing a generosity
that ranked him as one of
the top philanthropists in
the country. He had the
distinction of being the
ninth largest contributor to
the University of Miami,
totaling $3 million to con-
tinue the educational and
medical programs in that
august facility.
Long, a resident of Plan-
tation, stated that the estate
payment was made in accor-
dance to the will and the
final payment will be
presented at a later date.
Born on Nov. 25, 1897,
Dr. Fox spent the last seven
years in South Florida, after
having served a distinguish-
ed and noteworthy career in
New York and New Jersey.
Following his graduation
from New York University
Medical School in 1919, he
became associate physician
for the New York Stock Ex-
change and medical Direc-
tor of the American Stock
After only six years in the
Exchange, he became af-
filiated with J.P. Morgan in
setting up his medical
departments, after becom-
ing physician to most of the
major firms on Wall street,
including organizing
medical departments in
among others, Exxon'
Allied Chemical and U.S
NOVEMBER 18-22. 1987
While a resident of South
Florida, Dr. Fox's expertise
in the field of cancer
research provided his
knowledge and organiza-
tional structure to the
University of Miami School
of Medicine which on May
13, 1986 was highlighted by
the site dedication of the
Louis J. Fox Cancer
Research Facility, a part of
the Papanicolaou Com-
prehensive Cancer Center
at the University.
In making the announce-
ment, Polish emphasized
that the Federation is
honored by the heartfelt
wishes of Dr. Fox, and on
behalf of the entire Federa-
tion/UJA family, and the
tens of thousands of men,
women and children in
Israel and overseas, his con-
cern and caring will be
emblazoned forever in the
annals of benevolence.
Polish indicated that
Federation is assembling a
special committee to
organize and distribute the
funds from the Fox bequest,
which will among other pro-
grams be used for medical
facilities at the Project
Renewal city of Kfar Saba,

have worked diligently in
the past to raise the life-
enhancing, life-giving gifts
to help our brethren in

them the solidarity of our

saying: "I am a Nazi. All dark-
skinned people should be ex-
pelled from Switzerland, mix-

foreigners not allowed to par-
ticipate in demonstrations in

With this in mind, Gold has
instituted a series of Board
Development Workshops con-
ducted at Women's Division
Board Meetings by trained and
experienced facilitators.
The first meeting of the
1987/1988 Board was held in
May with a "Leadership How-
To'1 Workshop led by Gold,
herself a member of the Na-
tional UJA Women's Division
Executive Committee. This
Board orientation workshop
covered the basics of leader-
ship, exploring such issues as
the qualities and respon-
sibilities of leadership and
techniques for running effec-
tive meetings.
Following this introductory
session, the June Women's
Division Board meeting includ-
ed a "Communications Skills"
workshop presented by Lois
Chepenik, a member of the Na-
tional UJA Women's Division
Board. Chepenik, a past Presi-
dent of the Jacksonville
Women's Division, is now the
incoming President of the en-
tire Jacksonville Jewish
Federation. With her guidance
the Board members focused on
the basics of clear communica-
tion, including body language
and listening skills.
Both sessions were very well
received by the members of
the Women's Division Board,
who are eagerly awaiting
future sessions. Women's Divi-
sion Board meetings will not
be held during the summer but
will resume in September.

all interest will be paid at maturity in January and taxed in 1988... when
tax rates will be much lower for many people.

Sunrise resident, Steve
Baum, named JCC's spring
season volunteer of the month
for April 1987, was chosen by
the Center's staff for his in-
terest and immediate involve-
ment in special projects. A
new member this year, he was
introducted to JCC staff peo-
ple and volunteer team during
the planning meetings for the
jointly sponsored HDS/JCC
Las Vegas Night held last
winter. A very successful af-
fair for both the School and the
Center, Steve was a Hebrew
Day School representative on
the committee.
When he heard about JCC's
coming "Numbers Game" he
offered his services and
became its co-chairman with
Stuart Tatz. Baum was promi-
nent among the volunteers
who did the research, visited
other locations where the
games were played and
observed the operations. He
got the job as "caller" and has
been a "steady," not missing a
Tuesday night in the gym since
March 10 with the exception
of Jewish holiday evenings
"It has been most gratifying
being part of this venture,"
says Baum. "I like belonging
to this group of dedicated staff
people and volunteers. We
have achieved a nice sense of
accomplishment raising funds
for JCC and providing an even-
ing of entertainment for over
100 people every week ... it
would be great if we could get
some more volunteers to join
us even for a once a month
commitment." Baum said he
would be glad to train
newcomers and would
welcome a volunteer who
would share his job sometimes
as "loudspeaker'Vnumber
caller at the mike.
In other areas of service to
the Center, Baum's culinary
talents were appreciated by
Israel Independence Day's
Foods Committe last May. He
was among the crew who per-
formed the necessities of grin-
ding, shredding and mixing

comprehensive rehabili-

after the successful
Rusk Rehabilitation
Institute in Now York.

their days without being totally
dependent on others.
We do this through individual
patient care, an intensive Daily
Living Training Course, and special-
ized therapeutic activities. All are
coordinated with our rehabilitation
center, so you are assured that
what our patients learn can be used in the days ahead.

The world of feelings can be
very difficult to enter: it can be
complex, confusing and
frightening. We often think it
easier to avoid that world and
look the other way. And yet,
we know that our satisfaction
comes from feeling good about
ourselves and understanding
our family, friends and the
world around us. This satisfac-
tion can only be enhanced by
an awareness of our own
How do we learn about these
feelings? There are so many
levels of emotions, and feel-
ings have varying shades and
subtleties. We need guides to
help us understand our lives.
Sometimes we use our family
and friends. But other times
they seem to be as confused as
we are. Who then can we go
to? Asking for help from so-
meone else can be frightening
and it can make us feel
helpless and dependent.
Jewish Family Service of
Broward County is here to
help us guide ourselves
through the world of feelings.

Torah With Love offers a
truly wondeful idea for young
Jewish families. The authors
suggest that at each Shabbat
dinner the whole family can
devote some time to Torah
Study. This requires prepara-
tion on the part of the leader
(father or mother), who will
have carefully thought about
the Torah portion and have
some idea about where he or
she is leading the discussion.
The advantages of steady
talk at the family table about
values and stories and our
emotions connected to them
will surely enhance the connec-
tion of the family to each
other, to the Jewish tradition,
to a moral life examined in-
telligently. The book describes
how this can be done with
children of all ages, and how
even the difficult feelings of
rivalry, and fears and other
psychological tensions can be
approached at the table
through the medium of Torah.
The book offers suggestions on
how to start discussion, which
commentaries will help, and
what difficulties to expect
along the way.
The child who has this kind
of family talk at the table will
be helped to focus thought in
words, to think sharply, to en-
dure disagreement, to love
both Torah and argument. The
parents who are willing to do
this with their children will
create a medium for showing
each child that they are
respected, listened to and ad-
mired. It also gives parents a
way to communicate their own
values in a real exchange with
the children. Of course this
does require tolerance of the
Socratic dialogue and an abili-
ty to listen to children's views
even when they are simplistic
or morally limited. This kind of
Torah talk with children re-
quires an open-minded parent
who is willing to expose his or
her own conflicts and unease
with morally complicated

What a wonderful way for
Jewish families to be together
and for parents and children to
enhance their capacity to talk
to one another. If your family
is still young, read this book. It
may be the best gift you ever
brought into your home.
Effective Jewish Parenting is
filled with practical advice on
how to discipline children, how
to be firm, how to avoid losing
one's temper, how to deal with
issues of disorderliness,

or to wallow in guilt but to go
on to do beter at the next
breach. She is supportive and
encouraging in offering ways
to manage our children that
will get results without
creating a harsh family en-
vironment or embroiling all
members in an endless tangle
of argument and
The book has advice on
everything from how to teach
honor to how to deal with sibl-
ing rivalry. The parents who
would be able to follow the
methods and conversations in
this book would be good
parents in control of their
own feelings and filled with
respect and love for their child.
Of course life itself and the
daily wear and tear of power
struggles with our chldren
tend to make us all a lot less
calm than this book indicates.
The ideal is fine, and parents
will benefit from the tips and
the attitude toward parenting
Miriam Levi presents, but
don't be foiled; real life is
never the way it is in books
and real families are both more
terrible, unmanageable, and
more filled with humor,
laughter, passion and tears
than Miriam Levi suggests.
Read this book, learn from it,
but don't expect your home to
fall into line. Homes never fall
into line.
