American Cooperating
American who was kidnapped
in the Gaza Strip by three
armed Palestinians is cooper-
ating with Israelis investigat-
ing the abduction, the State
Department said.
Chris George, who is the
West Bank-Gaza Strip repre-
sentative of the Save the Chil-
dren Foundation, was released
unharmed, 29 hours after he
waj> abducted from his Gaza
Israeli sources had said ear-
lier that George, who is consid-
ered hostile to Israel, had
refused to cooperate in identi-
fying his kidnappers and the
location of where he was held.
But Richard Boucher, the
State Department's deputy
spokesman, said that the U.S.
Embassy in Israel is "satisfied
that in fact he cooperated"
with the Israeli officials inves-
tigating the kidnapping.
Boucher added that both the
United States and Israel "have
no reason to doubt that this
was a real kidnapping."
Israeli authorities had ini-
tially indicated that the kid-
napping may have been
staged, but they then dropped
the accusation.
However, they still report-
edly believe he cooperated
with his abductors.
New Signs Of Extremism
On Both Sides Of Intifada
Extremism seems to be rising
on both sides of the Palestinian
It is manifested by increased
vigilantism among Jewish set-
tlers in the administered terri-
tories and a literal reign of
terror by the leaders of the
uprising against Palestinians
suspected of collaboration with
Rabbi Yehuda Amital, a
moderate Orthodox leader and
eminent scholar, is the latest
Israeli public figure to voice
concern over the behavior of
hard-line settlers.
Amital, who heads a yeshiva
in the Etzion Bloc, south of
Jerusalem, warned this week
that the formation of a new
Jewish underground prone to
violence against Arabs is
Such a group was broken up
by the authorities in 1984,
when nearly 30 Jews, mostly
West Bank settlers, were con-
victed of violent crimes
against Arabs and sentenced
to prison terms.
Now, according to Amital,
"a dangerous and fanatic new
underground" is forming in
the ranks of the militant Gush
Emunim settlers movement.
Its members do not accept
the rule of law or the authority
of rabbis, but act according to
their own laws, he said.
Amital's was but one of sev-
eral such warnings heard since
the outburst of settler violence
after the funeral of a settler
from Ariel. The settler, Fre-
derick Rosenfeld, was mur-
dered by Arabs while hiking on
June 17.

ment claimed that Israel
stands on the brink of civil
Referring to the militant set-
tlers, Sarid said, "There are
arms, there are arms-bearers
and there is a sympathetic
environment, there is a local
leadership and a political lobby
in the Knesset."
Rabbi Yoel Bin-Nun, a Gush
Emunim moderate from the
West Bank settlement of Ofra,
spoke of the need to end the
"Jewish intifada," in addition
to curbing the Palestinians.
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir, who was verbally abused
and physically threatened by
settlers when he tried to speak
at Rosenfeld's funeral, subse-
quently received a group of
settlers at his office.
The delegation, which
included a local mayor and two
rabbis, apologized for the mis-
conduct of their colleagues.
Shamir stressed the need for
unity at a time when the nation
is, in his words, locked in con-
frontation with outsiders
intent on Israel's destruction.
On the Palestinian side,
efforts to maintain unity
include wanton murder.
Two Palestinians suspected
of having collaborated with the
Israeli authorities were bru-
tally slain.
The body of a young woman
was found in the Nablus cas-
bah the walled-in, older part
of town.
The body of a 22-year-old
Arab man, identified as Nidal
Salbub, was found in the court-
yard of a school in Nablus.

Shamir Plans Palestinian Talks
Minister Yitzhak Shamir will
open talks with leading Pales-
tinian figures from the West
Bank and Gaza Strip immedi-
ately after the Likud Central
Committee convenes in Tel
Aviv on July 5, Ma'ariv
Shamir's purpose is to pro-
mote his peace initiative,
which calls for, among other
things, Palestinian elections in
the territories.
The Palestinians reportedly
will be represented by promi-
nent activists of a variety of
affiliations, including Al
Fatah, the fighting arm of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion headed by Yasir Arafat.
Yossi Ben-Aharon, director
general of the Prime Minis-
ter's Office, confirmed that
preparations for the talks are
under way and said they may
start by the end of next week,
Ma'ariv reported.
The newspaper quoted Ben-
Aharon as saying, "The prime
minister will have to find time
to deal with the matter in an
intensive way in order to pro-
mote the process and the elec-
tions initiative."
The Likud Central Commit-
tee, consisting of nearly 2,000
members, was called into ses-
sion to discuss Shamir's peace
plan, which is opposed by pow-
erful elements in the party.
Shamir maintains that inas-
much as the plan has been
approved by the Cabinet and
the Knesset, the party forum
can neither reject nor alter it.
According to Ma'ariv, tech-
nical preparations for Sha-
mir's meetings with the Pales-
tinians have been entrusted to
Shmuel Goren, coordinator of
government activities in the
administered territories.
The newspaper said the talks
would be conducted in strictest
secrecy to facilitate frankness
on both sides and to protect
the Palestinian participants
from pressure by those who
represent other points of view.
It will be made clear to the
Palestinians in advance that
they will be meeting with the
prime minister, Ma'ariv said.
This is to demonstrate that
Israel respects them and to
avoid situations that have
arisen in the past, when the
Palestinian side was humili-
ated because it was summoned
to talks without being told
whom it was meeting.
Meanwhile, Ha'aretz
reported that the defense
establishment has decided to
allow Assad Saftawi to go to
Saftawi, a prominent Pales-
tinian in the Gaza Strip, has an
11-point peace plan of his own,
which he wants to present to
PLO officials in Cairo.

Hatikvah, the home is located
in Coral Springs.
Two house parents will live
in the house, assisting the four

Hatikvah Family Inc. began
as an organization of parents
of developmentally disabled
children under the leadership
of the late Mayer Finkel, who
was the parent of a son with
Downs Syndrome. In January,
1988, Hatikvah Family Inc.
was formally incorporated as a
Florida non-profit corporation

CCAR Agenda Included
Brief On Homosexuality
(Cincinnati, Ohio, June 25,
1989) The Central Confer-
ence of American Rabbis
(CCAR), the professional
organization of Reform rabbis
in the United States and
abroad, elected Rabbi Samuel
E. Karff as its new president
at its Centennial Convention in
Cincinnati, Ohio.
Rabbi Karff is the senior
rabbi of Congregation Beth
Israel in Houston, Texas and
has been a member of the
CCAR since 1956. He has just
concluded his term as vice-
president of the CCAR. He
also was the chairman of the
Centennial Convention and the
CCAR Centennial Endowment
In an agenda which included
remarks by Dr. Alfred Gotts-
chalk, president of the Hebrew
Union College-Jewish Insti-
tute of Religion, directed at
reasserting the central role of
the synagogue in American
Jewish life, and passage of a
variety of resolutions regard-
ing the Law of Return, Feed-
ing the Hungry and Soviet
Jewry, the CCAR focused on
an issue of extreme sensitivity.
For the first time a rabbinical
organization has formally and
publicly addressed what may
well be the most controversial
ethical issue confronting con-
temporary American Jewish
life, that of homosexuality.
Despite the fact that passions
run deep among those who
oppose any hint of a move that
would appear to condone
homosexuality and those who
favor the CCAR's taking a
formal stand in support of
homosexuality and homosex-
uals in the rabbinate, only
respect was shown to the prin-
cipal presenters and to anyone
expressing personal opinions
in the individual discussion
groups which followed delivery
of the formal papers.
The session may also be
noteworthy in what it did not
do. It did not yield a CCAR
resolution. Rather, it produced
a forum in which the discus-
sion of homosexuality and the
Jewish tradition, homosexual-
ity and the Jewish community
and homosexuality and the
Reform rabbinate could be
raised to its highest level. Out
of this session, the CCAR Ad
Hoc Committee on Homosex-
uality hopes that sophisticated
Jewish discussion will continue
on the regional levels and, ulti-
mately, might lead to a resolu-
tion at some future CCAR
Rabbi Selig Salkowtiz of
Brooklyn, NY, the chair of the
Ad Hoc Committee, opened
the session by summarizing
the history of the commitee's

On Israel In The News
New Staff At JFS Broward
THERE was a time I
envied my French and Ameri-
can colleagues. I was working
as the Paris correspondent for
Yedioth Ahronot, which in
those days was to say the
least in poor financial shape,
the poorest newspaper in
Israel. Since I left the paper, it
has become rich and powerful.
Was there a connection
between my leaving and the
newspaper's growth? Let's
just say that the paper didn't
become rich because I left, but
it wasn't because of me or
my salary that it was impo-
verished. In the 1950s, the
only way the newspaper could
pay its contributors was with
compliments. Money? A young
student like me moreover
idealistic was ashamed to
talk about money anyway.
Besides, the entire country
was having similar problems.
It existed only by a miracle.
The nation's treasury was
more or less (if anything,
more) empty, but its spirit was
full. Full of enthusiasm, of
dreams, of fervor. People
didn't eat very well, they
didn't travel very often, there
wasn't a hint of elegance in
how they dressed, they consid-
ered a good meal a divine
blessing and a car a luxury
bordering on the scandalous;
.but they didn't complain,
except to make a joke.
It wasn't, therefore, for base
material motives, that I envied
my colleagues at The Times,
the Manchester Guardian or
the Associated Press. My rea-
sons were different; purely
In those days, my newspaper
was only interested in Israel
topics. I "covered" only Israeli
stories. A provincial outlook?
Tel Aviv, center of the world?
There was also something else:
because of all kinds of short-
ages, Israeli dailies carried
only four (and sometimes two)
pages. And those were natu-
rally reserved for events
immediately affecting the
reader's concerns.
there was very little news in
Paris that related directly to
Israel. The arrival of a Cabinet
minister once a year, ideologi-
cal or personal disputes among
those at the heart of the Zion-
ist movement, the arrival of an
actress (sometimes pretty but
always hungry for publicity),
the insignificant statements
from the Quai D'Orsay that
never said anything: Oh, yes, I
was jealous of the journalists
from those large newspapers
who could and even had to
write on thousands and thou-'
Elie Wiesel
sands of subjects.
I even envied the correspon-
dent for the Jewish Chronicle
of London. He, at least, could
follow the daily events happen-
ing to the Jews in France, even
if they didn't have any connec-
tion to Israel. Not me. A Jew-
ish novelist published a best-
seller? I could talk about it only
if he was prepared to visit
Israel (which happened rarely)
or if the story was set in Israel.
A Jewish businessman or poli-
tician had his picture on the
front page of France-Soir?
That was important for the
reader in Paris, not for the one
in Beersheva. Fortunately, at
one time or another, the anti-
Semites would rear their ugly
heads: an article on anti-
Jewish hate was always wel-
Nowadays, things have
changed. Me too? I no longer
just envy my colleagues from
the large newspapers, but also
the correspondents at my old
My successors those in
New York as well as in Paris
are overworked, overbur-
dened, overcommitted. They
have so much to do. To begin
with, Israel itself has been
transformed over the years; it
has matured; its egocentrism
seems to have faded. They
already know, in Israel, that
the world has gotten smaller.
A state like Israel cannot avoid
being linked by diverse bonds
to other nations. What hap-
pens in Washington, London,
Bonn, Calcutta or Caracas,
affects life in Ramat Gan and
Rehovot. Everything is tied to
everything else. The earth pos-
sesses more than one center.
Whatever happens, no matter
how mysteriously, has bearing
on everyone else. The political
and social crises of a country,
no matter how small, or fara-
way, risk having repercussions
in the Israeli context.
Israel itself has become an
abundant source of news. Not
a day goes by when it is not the
object of international atten-
tion. In fact, too many things
take place there. Now and
then, I'm surprised to feel a
strange nostalgia for the days
when Israel did not make a
daily appearance on the front
page of The New York Times
or The Washington Post. The
slightest incident in Israel sur-
passes in importance a cata-
strophe elsewhere. One could
say, today, that all eyes are
fixed not only principally, but
exclusively on Israel; the rest
of the world counts less.
Israel, quite understandably,
is not happy with this. What
country, in a state of religious
turbulence and political-ethnic
convulsions, likes to be the
focal point of television cam-
eras, day after day, night after
Is it true that the presence of
journalists encourages and
incites the stone-throwers in
the territories? Is it correct
that in addition to "covering"
the mobs, the journalists
involuntarily, of course pro-
long the uprising? But then,
these brave representatives of
the world press will tell you:
What should we do look
away? Ignore dramatic situa-
tions that hurt, that create
fear? What would be my atti-
tude if I myself were a corre-
spondent for a French or
American newspaper based in
Jerusalem? Between my duty
to inform, and my loyalty to
the Jewish people, what would
be my choice? But are these
two ideas, these two princi-
ples, necessarily incompatible?
Why should they be? In other
words: can a loyal Jew be
opposed to certain aspects of
Israeli politics without assum-
ing renunciation of his solidar-
ity with the State and people
of Israel? Does a Jew who
loves Israel have the right to
criticize its government, all the
while knowing that Israel will
feel more alone, even more
isolated than before?
BUT there, we reach the
limits of this article. I simply
would like to remember the
good old days when, as a
slightly naive journalist, I had
other problems, other anguish.
Did I also have other hopes?
How far away it seems, that
period of my life.

Warsaw Wedding. .
A First In 40 Years
Twenty-two members, of
Robert Blum's family are fly-
ing from New York to Warsaw
for his wedding there to
Joanna Kan on July 2.
Blum, a lawyer from New
York's Upper East Side, is
marrying a Polish convert to
Judaism in historic circum-
stances that seem to have
taken even the couple them-
selves by surprise.
Blum, 29, and Kan, 22, had
intended to marry in New
York. But following an unex-
pectedly emotional trip to
Warsaw last October, the cou-
ple decided to be wed in the
sole synagogue still function-
ing in the Polish capital.
Their wedding is to be a gift
to the elderly Jews who still
live in that city, once a flour-
ishing center of Judaism which
has not seen a traditional Jew-
ish wedding performed in
some 40 years.
The wedding invitation is
written in three languages,
English, Hebrew and Polish.
For their Polish nuptials, the
couple are making some per-
sonal compromises, taking
steps they might not have
thought necessary in New
Although their union most
probably would have been con-
secrated in a Conservative cer-
emony in New York, in War-
saw their wedding will be
strictly Orthodox. They have
followed requests to adhere to
tradition to the extent that the
bride will travel three hours
each way to be immersed in
the old mikvah (ritual bath) in

Jerusalem Police Chief
Dies in Midst of Probe
Yosef Yehudai, the Jerusalem
chief of police, died suddenly
of a heart attack at is home.
He was 42.
Considered one of the most
promising young police offi-
cers in Israel, Yehudai was
spoken of as a possible candi-
date for the office of national
police inspector-general within
the next 10 years.
His tenure in Jerusalem
included the 18 months of the
Palestinian uprising, which
frequently spilled over into
Arab East Jerusalem. Yehudai
was credited with keeping the
capital relatively calm com-
pared to the West Bank and
Gaza Strip.
Born in Romania in 1947,
Yehudai emigrated to Israel in
1961. He had served with the
paramilitary border police and
the regular police since he was
At the time of his death,
Yehudai was investigating the
murder of Professor Menahem

stabbed on his way to the

Press For Irony
It is more than symbolic irony that the
official press organizations of the Soviet
Union and the State of Israel will soon
exchange mission visits.
In recent months, the apparently increasing
openness (glasnost) in the U.S.S.R. has made
for restrained optimism, especially among
Diaspora agencies and the Jewish-American
There was enough reason to withhold blan-
ket approval of all that the attendant restruc-
turing (perestroika) has accomplished. There
are still reports, after all, of the poor relative
laws roadblocking some refusenik's emigration
to Israel or points West. There are disturbing
reports, as well, of the patently anti-Semitic
and chauvinistic organization Pamyat.
But, when the ultimate sign of a free society
is proffered that of the press it is further
cause for cautious welcome.
And in Europe
If the truism that European Parliament
deputies reflect the political positions of their
own national governments then the election
of right-wing extremists to the parliament
bespeaks increased dangers for relations with
the State of Israel.
The representatives of such parties from
West Germany and France two of the
largest participating nations suggest that
right-wing activities are not limited to the rare
group outside the mainstream.
In the past, Israel has suffered at the whims
of a European Community often bent on its

ment does not offer reassurance at this critical
Waldheim Denial
Once again, the United States has made the
appropriate political decision based upon a
moral imperative:
No, Austrian President Kurt Waldheim's
name will not be lifted from the U.S. "watch
list," which bars his entrance into this coun-
While the Austrian Foreign Ministry made
the pro-forma request based upon questiona-
ble interpretation of international law, the
United States stood firm. Its rationale: any
person who is suspect on the issue of persecut-

should be barred from entrance.
We endorse this continuing action.
A Cardinal Jewish Sin
More people lose Olam Habah
their share in the World to
Come through lashon harah
(slander) than from any other
aveirah (sin). (Talmud Bava
Metzia 58b.)
That is the striking headline
over a series of full-page ads
that have appeared in several
major Orthodox Yiddish and
English-language newspapers
during the past few weeks.
The ad campaign is part of a
comprehensive effort to con-
tain the verbal violence that
has agitated relations between
several prominent Hasidic rab-
bis and their followers in
Israel. That hostility has had
repercussions in stressed rela-
tions between their consti-
tuents and followers in the
United States.
Inevitably, such hostility and
anger functions like an
unguided missile. It has lethal,
destructive effects not only on
intra-Orthodox relations, but,
like radioactive fallout, con-
taminates relations with Con-
servative, Reform and non-
observant Jews as well.
And, as social psychologists
instruct us, verbal violence
becomes a triggering device
for physical violence.
The significance of this anti-
lashon harah drive, it seems to
me, is that it appears to be
more than the usual public
relations flurry.
Launched by a group calling
itself the Chofetz Chaim Heri-
tage Foundation named
after the great 19th century
Talmudic giant who abhorred
slander and gossip this com-
prehensive campaign includes
cassettes of Talmudic teach-
ings and a series of radio pro-
grams and rabbinic lectures on
the evils of vilification.
A central theme of this
arresting effort is to concen-
trate on the positive rabbinic
teachings of shmirat halashon,
vigilance in the use of one's
language, emphasizing partic-
ularly the critical position of
parents and teachers as role
Given the fractured nature
of so much of Jewish life today,
we should not only be wishing
success to this unique, if
belated, clean-speech drive,
but might well be incorporat-
ing its lessons for the edifica-
tion of all Jews, everywhere.

Client's Poem Reflects On JFS
Each week, more than 350
clients visit Jewish Family
Service offices in Hollywood,
Fort Lauderdale, Deerfield
Beach and Coral Springs for
counseling involving a myriad
of problems.
One Jewish Family Service
client interpreted the benefits
of the one-to-one counseling
with a poem:

Weekly at 10:05 a.m. sharp
the door quietly shuts
and in the homey coziness of the
small room
I bare my pains, passions
and desires to an open heart.
With patience and deep under-

and faults resounding off the
room's four walls.

a take in this small room

Flights to
El Al, Israel's national air-
line, has received permission
for the first direct flights to
the Soviet Union in more than
20 years.
But the first trips will be of
a humanitarian, not a commer-
cial nature.
The Israeli air carrier will
pick up 64 casualties of the
earthquake that devastated
Soviet Armenia and
bring them to Israel to be
fitted with artificial limbs and
get post- operative treatment.
The group, which includes
many children, was treated ini-
tially by an Israeli medical
rescue team that was flown to
Eridan, Armenia, shortly after
the disaster.
The offer of prostheses and
further treatment was
extended by an Israel Defense
Force medical team of burn
specialists, which flew to Mos-
cow last month.
They went there to treat
victims of a natural gas pipe-
line explosion that destroyed
two passenger trains on the
Trans- Siberian Railway.
The Armenian earthquake
survivors will be treated at the
government's Sheba Hospital
in Tel Hashomer and the Ram-
bam Hospital in Haifa.

limbs, the patients will spend
time at an IDF rehabilitation
center before they are flown

Page 8 The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale/Friday, July 7, 1989
Goodwill Ambassador To Teach the Children
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Mark D. Friedman of Tam-
arac spent his short profes-
sional career in Jewish public
relations. Now he's planning
to teach English in Japan.
On June 30, he will leave the
post he has held for the past
three years as a communica-
tions associate at Greater
Miami Jewish Federation and
take a path he compares to
Star Trek.
"You know how Star Trek
ends by saying, 'And the
adventure continues?' To me,
that's how the adventure
begins: I'm going to Japan for
a one-year program and it's
expected that after the year I
will come back," said Fried-
man, 28. "But a whole new
world can open up for me. This
adventure could open up a new
life for me."
Being single and having no
mortgage makes it easier to
pick up and go. The only obsta-
cle is selling his 1986 Dodge
But that problem is rela-
tively minor considering how
much and how long Friedman
has wanted to go to Japan. The
closest he ever got, however,
was the EPCOT Center's
Japanese Pavilion, where he
became a regular three sum-
mer's ago.
Two summers ago, work
kept him from going. Last
summer, it was an abscessed

on the verge of reality. When
opportunity arose, he grabbed
Japanese educators have a
program called Japan
Exchange and Teaching (JET).
They seek young professional
college graduates under the
age of 35 to spend one year in
Japan with an option for a
second year teaching a for-
eign language.
Friedman is one of 1,900
JET participants who will be
in Japan this year; about 900
are from the U.S.; the rest are
from Canada, Britain, Ireland,
Australia, New Zeland, France
and Germany.
Friedman will be assigned to
a public junior high school and
his tasks will include designing
new, creative ways to teach
English and judging English
language competitions.
"Learning English is very
popular in Japan and manda-
tory in schools as a second
language. It will also be a way
of cultural exchange; in many
ways, I'll be an ambassador of
good will from my country,"
he said.
"For a lot of the Japanese
children, it will be the first
time they've actually encoun-

Remember This Dream
To Support Museum
Harold (Hal) Gershowitz,
author of the novel "Remem-

all of the book's royalties to
the U.S. Holocaust Memorial
Gershowitz, a Chicago busi-

the national campaign board of
A Campaign to Remember, the
museum's fundraising arm.
"Remember This Dream,".a
family saga that deals with the
Holocaust, is now in its fourth
printing. Published by Bantam
Books the novel won the 1989
Fiction Award of Chicago's
Friends of Literature.
Gershowitz explains that the
inspiration for the novel came
from his mother's and aunts'
reminiscences of their experi-

Brown told members of the

believes the U.S.-Israel tie is

There are only about 1,000
Jews in Japan, but Friedman
said going to a predominantly
non-Jewish area isn't a consid-
eration. "You can be a Jew
wherever you go," he said.
"You can seek out syna-
gogues. You can still be Jewish
in Japan."
Friedman expects to benefit
from the program as much as
it intends to benefit from him.
"To learn a language you
should be in contact with a
native speaker. To have us

it from a book to a real person.

Friedman is attracted to the
idea of Japan revealing both
ancient and modern sides and
being able to explore shrines
and temples still standing
after thousands of years.

actually live it as the Japanese
live it/'
