Brandeis U. Sociologist Predicts
N.Y. Will Lose
population of Jews in the
United States will decrease
slightly; New York will lose its
dominance in the American
Jewish community; Jews will
become more conservative
politically; and the division
between the Orthodox com-
munity and Conservative and
Reform Jews will deepen.
These are some of the eye-
opening predictions of a Bran-
deis University sociologist,
who has attempted to forecast
the future of the American
Jewish community in the year
Based on research con-
ducted nationally in American
Jewish communities, Gary
Tobin, director of the Cohen
Center for Modem Jewish Stu-
dies at Brandeis, paints a
somewhat dismal picture of
the future of American Jewry.
"The greatest threat to the
overall size of the Jewish popu-
lation may come from inter-
marriage," Tobin wrote in an
article in B'nai B'rith Jewish
"In the past generation, the
rate of intermarriage has sky-
rocketed Meanwhile, rates
of conversion to Judaism have
"In the next two genera-
tions, the Jewish community
may be reduced by 10 to 30
percent because of intermarri-
age and assimilation."
Immigration and a high
Orthodox birthrate, Tobin
notes, will offset this popula-
tion loss, but this phenomenon
may cause interdenomina-
tional problems of its own.
Tobin forecasts increased
polarization within the Ameri-
can Jewish community, with
the Reform and Conservative
communities developing
shared institutional and lead-
ership networks that will sever
their present reliance on the
Orthodox community.
"Both groups will call them-
selves Jews, but in terms of
institutional, philanthropic and
other dimensions of Jewish
life, they will be almost separ-
ate." Ultimately, marriage
between Orthodox and non-
Orthodox Jews will become
increasingly problematic.
Moreover, as the community
becomes more acutely divided
into Orthodox and non-
Orthodox, tensions within
"secular" Judaism will

Chanukah, You Light
Up Our Lives
name for Chanukah is "chag
urim," the Festival of Lights.
The Maccabees, after defeat-
ing the Syrian Greeks, came to
rededicate the Temple. When
they kindled the Eternal
Light, they found only enough
pure oil for one day. Neverthe-
less, they lit the lamp and a
miracle occurred: the light
burned for eight days, until a
fresh supply of oil arrived.
The Eternal Light is part of
the central structure of every
synagogue. It is called the
Eternal Light because it sym-
bolizes the presence of God,
which is eternally with us. And
it reflects the brightness of
Jewish tradition, reminding us
that Judaism is a continuing
process, a flame that can never
be extinguished.
The Biblical passage describ-
ing the lighting of the Menorah
in the sanctuary contains an
interesting lesson. After all
the instructions are given, we
are told, "And Aaron did so:
he lighted the lamps ... as the
Lord had commanded." (Num-
bers 8:3)
Rashi, the greatest Jewish
commentator on the Bible,
adds, "Aaron deserves praise
for doing exactly as God had
commanded him." Why should
Aaron be praised for doing
exactly what he should have
The answer is that on the
day of the dedication of the
sanctuary, Aaron, of course,
would want to kindle the Men-
orah. However, as time went
on and it became a routine
task, he still continued with
the same dedication as on the
first day. For this, he deserved
It is natural to begin an
activity with enthusiasm.
Usually, this enthusiasm cools.
But someone who is dedicated
understands that real satisfac-
tion is found not in beginning

ing at it regularly until results
are achieved. This requires
devotion, commitment and
concentration. People who do
these things deserve our
When the first Americans
were permitted to visit Cuba
after years of embargo, one of
the members of the official

night he had a yahrzeit. He
asked for a synagogue and was
told there was one left in Old
Havana. To his dismay, it was
in a state of neglect and disre-
pair, with the minyan made up
of elderly Jews.
As the service began, the

Good News On Many Fronts
As slow as the peace process in the
Middle East continues to be, Israel and
world Jewry are the recipients of an
astounding number of favorable develop-
ments on the world scene.
The Bush Administration has alerted the
United Nations that it will launch a major
campaign to repeal the infamous "Zionism
equals racism" resolution adopted in 1975.
Pressure by the United States has led to
the withdrawal of an Arab-sponsored meas-
ure which would, in effect, have recognized
Palestine as a state through a UN General
Assembly resolution.
The Soviet Union is continuing to ease
measures necessary for Jews to leave, and
both the percentage and number of emi-
grants going to Israel is increasing with
each month.
Congress has passed foreign aid meas-
ures which support $3 billion in funds for
economic and military assistance to Israel.
This is a level which meets the Jewish
State's realistic requests.
Steps towards the formal renewal of
diplomatic relations between Moscow and
Jerusalem continue, with the USSR indi-
cating it will be a "team player" in the
Middle East diplomatic scene.
All of these steps, however, must not lead
to euphoria, but set the stage for action to
take maximum advantage.
Zionism Resolution Action Affirmed
Vice President Dan Quayle formally com-
mitted this country to repealing the Zion-
ism-racism measure during a speech at
Yeshiva University this week. More impor-
tantly, he repeated the pledge during a talk
before the Council on Foreign Relations a
day later.
With that kind of top-level presence,
members of the UN will have a clear
message that repeal is mandatory next
year if the USA is to continue its major
funding of the world body.
Soviet Exodus Breaking Records
Figures on the number of Jews applying
for visas to Israel, and on those who have
left the Soviet, continue to break records
month by month.
Now it is up to both Israel and world
Jewry to prepare for an orderly absorption
of immigrants both in Israel and, to a
somewhat lesser extent, in the United
For nearly 20 years, the cry of "Let My
People Go" has resounded from organized
Jewry. It cannot be less forceful in smooth-
ing the path for the greatest exodus of
Jews since the earliest years of modern
Israel's statehood.

The Building Of The Temple
Friday, December 22,1989
Volume 18
Number 25
eight-day festival of Chanu-
kah, which begins Dec. 22,
'commemorates the rededica-
tion of the Holy Temple, the
Bet Hamikdosh, in Jerusalem
in the year 165 BCE, following
its pagan defilement by the
Syrians. With the destruction
of the resplendent Herodian
temple by the Romans in 70
C.E., the focus of Chanukah
observance in the Diaspora
inevitably shifted to the "mira-
cle of the cruse of oil," and the
Festival of Lights.
Since the time of King Solo-
mon's temple, which was con-
structed about 1000 BCE, the
Bet Hamikdosh was the dra-
matic national and religious
focus of Israelite unity. The
Roman destruction in the first
century rendered the temple
more symbolic than real in
Jewish consciousness.
But with the reconquest of
Jerusalem and the Temple
Mount by Israel in the 1967
war, a preoccupation has
developed among mainly tradi-
tional Jews to "rebuild the
Temple speedily in our days."
There are fundamental dif-
ferences of Halachic views
among Orthodox Jews as to
whether contemporary Jews
have a right to rebuild the
Temple before the Messiah
arrives. Nevertheless, groups
of Israeli traditional Jews are
preparing seriously for the
construction of "an intermedi-
ate temple" before the Messia-
nic era.
There are now Talmudic
schools in Jerusalem studying
elaborate details of the Temple
service, the genealogy of pri-
ests who may conduct animal
sacrifices, and reconstructing
the ritual implements that will
be required should Temple
sacrifices be restored.
Clearly, a reconstituted tem-
ple would trigger off major
internal conflicts between tra-
ditionalist and modernists in
the Jewish community.
Instead of restoring the
ancient glory of national unity,
it could become a cause for
further polarization.
Unquestionably, it would
have massive consequences in
the Moslem and Christian
worlds. The Moslems speak of
launching a jihad, a holy war,
should their Al Aksa Mosque
become threatened by a Jew-
ish temple. Fundamentalist
Christians are thrilled by the
idea of the reborn temple,
since that would fulfill their
theological precondition for
the Second Coming.
While 1 have heard or seen
no response in the Vatican or
in the Catholic religious world
as yet, 1 would imagine a
rebuilt temple in Jerusalem
would not cause them rejoic-
ing. A renewed Jewish temple,
raised in glory and with pan-
ache, would be the death blow
of that ancient Christian belief
of the "wandering Jews" pun-
ished by God.
A truly brilliant daily and
weekly Jewish temple service,
with or without sacrifices,
would place Jerusalem front
and center in the religious uni-
verse, rivaling Rome, Constan-
tinople, and Mecca as the cyno-
sure of spiritual presence.
In the meantime, we con-
tinue to light the eight glowing
Chanukah candles, and that
will keep us joyful and faithful
for a long time until the Mes-
siah comes.

The Berlin Wall, here seen in front of the Brandenburg Gate, was built by the German Democratic
Republic on August IS, 1961. It has run through the old German capital, dividing it for 28 years.
Since November 9, in response to vociferous public protest by people in the GDR, Die East German
regime has granted its citizens freedom of travel. The inhuman Wall has been breached and new
crossing points have been set up at a number of locations but not yet at the Brandenburg Gate.

Na'amat Fights
In what may be viewed by
some as a radical departure
from its traditional orienta-
tion, Na'amat has published a
pamphlet aimed at encourag-
ing women entrepreneurs.
According to Harriet Green
of Miami, national president of
Na'amat USA, the departure
is less radical than pragmatic,
stemming from Israel's rapidly
growing unemployment rates.
"Israel employment figures
over the last few months have
shown an alarming rise in the
number of women looking for
work," noted Mrs. Green.
"The number is rapidly
approaching 75,000, with
20,000 receiving unemploy-
ment benefits. Nor are many
women likely to benefit from

Peres's "100 Projects," which

other infrastructure work for

"How To Make Money At
Home." has been published as
a joint venture
between Na'amat and Israel's
Labor Ministry. It contains
ideas for setting up small
home-run Businesses and
advice on helpful services. It
can be used on its own or in
conjunction with courses the
Labor Ministry is setting up to
teach women small-business
management skills.
Mrs. Green emphasized that
the book is not intended to
force working women back
into the home, but merely to
respond to a particular need.
"Most of the women who are
unemployed are between the
ages of 26 and 32 and many of
them are mothers of young
children," said Mrs. Green.

that private enterprise is a
relevant solution for them and
as such, merits the support of

wave of Jewish emigration
from the Soviet Union may
turn out to be far larger than
Israeli officials had antici-
Israeli authorities are issu-
ing invitations to Soviet Jews

rate of 2,500 a day, officials
here report.

"We are talking about an
exodus. The sky's the limit," a
senior official told reporters
here over the weekend.
A total of 90,000 Jews will
leave the Soviet Union in 1990,
and officials expect 50,000 of
them to come to Israel.
Jews are leaving the
Soviet Union in greater
numbers in part because
the recent emigration
reforms make it much
easier to do so. But they
are also leaving because
glasnost has allowed anti-
Semitism to flourish.
They base that estimate, in
part, on the 50,000 ceiling the
United States has placed on
the number of Soviet refugees
it will admit during this fiscal
year. Of this number, 40,000
are expected to be Jews.
Jews are leaving the Soviet
Union in greater numbers in
part because the recent emi-
gration reforms make it much
easier to do so. But they are
also leaving because glasnost
has allowed anti- Semitism to
Soviet Jews also fear that.
President Mikhail Gorbachev's
grip on leadership is becoming
shaky. They want to leave
before reforms that have bene-
fited them are reversed.
Jewish emigration also has
been spurred by the ethnic
unrest and the rise of Islamic
fundamentalism in the Soviet
Asian republics. The rapid
departure of 250,000 Jews liv-
ing in those areas would be
given top priority, officials
here said.
It is now believed here that
the Jewish population of the
Soviet Union has been unde-
rcounted and that there is a far
larger base for emigration.

mates 1.8 million Jews, the

Ensign Bank's
Plantation Center
Ensign Bank's eighth Flor-
ida banking center located at
850 Nob Hill Road in Planta-
tion, finished its first week of
business with 46 accounts and
deposits totalling $1,128,969.
"We realized that customers
in this burgeoning community
wanted and needed the conve-
nience, service and products
we have to offer at Ensign
bank," said Pamela Pattison,
banking center director in
Plantation. "Strong customer
response confirmed our beliefs
about the marketplace."
Most popular among the
products offered by Ensign
was the one year CD. Cash
bonuses were offered on sev-
eral products and a seven-day
Caribbean cruise was the
grand prize raffled off after
the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Ensign Bank, with over $2
billion in assets, was estab-
lished in 1983. There are 28
offices throughout New York,
New Jersey and Florida.
Ensign's other Florida bank-
ing centers are located in Boca
Raton, Boynton Beach, Deer-
field Beach, Hialeah, Kendale
Lakes, Aventura and North

But he warned that Soviet
leaders must take strong
measures to prevent bigotry
and anti-Semitism that is
increasing parallel to the pol-
icy of giasnost or openness.
Israel remains "concerned
about the Soviet supply of
arms to Syria and other Arab
states," Arad said.
Arad stressed the impor-
tance of maintaining the cur-
rent Israeli-American "inti-
mate relationship," particu-
larly in strategic matters.
Asked if Israel's strategic
importance to the U.S. will
shrink as peace breaks out in
Eastern Europe, Arad quickly
pointed out the instability that
remains in the Middle East.
The U.S. still depends on 50
percent of its oil coining from
the Middle East. A rise in
Arab fundamentalism and
arms buiid-up in the Middle
East, accompanied by an esca-
lation in chemical weapons,
lends to a need for an even
stronger U.S.-Israeli strategic
cooperation, Arad said.
The ambassador did note,
however, that it took the U.S.
State Department "several
days to characterize the (ter-
rorist) bus attack in Israel that
killed 14 and injured 27 an act
of terrorism."
"The PLO makes it clear it
wants all Israel and to use any
land it obtains in Judea and
Samaria as a launching pad."
Arad took some moments to
tell of the "paramount" need
to bring Soviet Jews to Israel,
a theme that was expressed
throughout the convention.
"It is a Jewish challenge and
mostly a Zionist challenge.
They should be settled in Israel
not the U.S. or any other
country. It is incumbent on
Zionists of America, to dedi-
cate resources to Russian
aliyah and NOT resettlement
in the U.S."

Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
il\."i*m**t eame t0 Pat8' **** Joseph was come unto his
brethren, that they stripped Joseph of his coat"
(Gen. S7.U).
VAYESHE V Jacob and his sons dwelt in the land of Canaan as
shepherds. Of all his sons, Jacob loved Joseph best. His obvious
favoritism, and Joseph's account of his grandiose dreams,
produced hatred and iealousy among the brothers. Joseph's
brothers sold the hated favorite to some Iahmaelite merchants,
who took Joseph to Egypt with him. There, Potiphar, an officer of
the Pharaoh and captain of his guard, bought Joseph as a slave.
The Hebrew lad quickly rose to a position of responsibility in his
master's household. However, Joseph rejected the advances of
Potiphar's wife; she slandered him, and he was imprisoned. But in
prison, too, God was with Joseph, and he won the confidence of
the jailers. He became known as an interpreter of dreams by
correctly reading the significance of the dreams of the Pharaoh's
butler and baker when they were his prison mates.

Menorah Found
On Jars
At Sepphoris
Jerusalem For the first
time, the seven-branched men-
orah one of Judaism's most
ancient symbols has been
found inscribed on the sides of
clay storage jar fragments.
The fragments, dating back to
the Roman era, were discov-
ered in excavations conducted
this summer at Sepphoris in
the Galilee by archaeologists
from the Hebrew University of
Jerusalem and Duke Univer-
sity of Durham, N.C.
Although the menorah has
never before been found
inscribed on pottery jars, say
the archaeologists, the symbol
often shows up on many struc-
tures and artifacts of Jewish
antiquity, going back to
Roman times, such as oil
lamps, sarcophagi and mosaic
Appearance of the menorah
on the jars indicates, according
to the archaeologists, that the
vessels were probably not
meant for ordinary use but
may have served some special
purpose in association with
one or more of the 18 syna-
gogues reputed to have been
located in Sepphoris.
Sepphoris, also known by its
Roman name of Diocaesarea
or its Hebrew name of Zippori,
is located just west of Nazar-
eth. It was at one time an
important center of pagan,
Jewish and early Christian set-
tlement, serving as the home
of the Sanhedrin, the central
body of Jewish legal and spiri-
tual life during the Roman
period. It also was the home
for 17 yean of Rabbi Judah
Hanasi (Judah the Prince),
patriarch and leader of the
Sanhedrin and codifier of the
Mishna in the third century

tained," Tobin warns, "a siza-
ble proportion of the Jewish
population will drift away in
the next two generations."
This secularization will take
a number of forms, particu-
larly regional relocation.
According to Tobin's fig-
ures, Jews from the Northeast
will move in substantial num-
bers to the Sun Belt. By 2050,
the Jewish population of Flor-
ida and California over 55 and
under 35, now 1.5 million,
could top 2.2 million.
Because Jews of the West
tend to be more assimilated
while the Jews of Florida tend
to be less involved in commun-
ity activities, this movement of
Jews to the Sun Belt could
have serious implications for
the quality of the American
Jewish community in the
Previously centralized
around New York, the com-
munity will become decentral-
ized and dislocated. "In the
next 10 to 50 years, with rare
exceptions, most Jewish neigh-
borhoods will disappear."
The last major change in
American Jewish life that
Tobin points to in his study is
political. As Jews become
more secular, more assimi-
lated and less centralized, they
will become more conserva-
"The growing comfort of
American Jews socially and
economically will reduce their
commitment to liberal causes
and their advocacy of change.''
In the end, he says, "rifts
between Jews and other
minority groups such as blacks
will deepen."
In an interview with the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency,
Tobin explained that as dismal
as the future of the American
Jewish community may look,
there are a number of ways to
prevent the impending prob-
lems of the next century.

C.E. The city is believed to
have reached its apogee after
many Jews fled northward fol-
lowing the second Jewish
revolt against the Romans
(132-135 C.E.).
For the Roman rulers, Sep-
phoris was a provincial
governmental and cultural
center. The city is believed to
have been destroyed by an
earthquake in 363 C.E.
This year marked the fifth
season of excavations at Sep-
phoris and coincided with the
opening of a new pavilion at
the Israel Museum to house
the splendid mosaic floor
found in the excavations two
years ago and subsequently
picked up and loaned to the
museum. The mosaic, showing
scenes from Dionysus and
other aspects of life in anti-
quity, is best known for its
beautiful female figure,
dubbed the "Mona Lisa of the
Freedom in Our I
"At the present, we are in a
period of rebirth as well as
assimilation. We're on the
upside right now. The baby
boomers are now discovering
their cultural roots. Those
becoming involved are more
intense in their observance.
It's the next generation that I
worry about.
"We need a lot more pro-
grams for under-affiliated pop-
ulations programs to
increase conversion and sin-
gles programs."
Tobin calls on Jewish organi-
zations and institutions to play
an active role in addressing the
problems of tomorrow.
"If Jewish organizations and
"Both groups will call
themselves Jews, but in
terms of institutional,
philanthropic and other
dimensions of Jewish life,
they will be almost
separate." Ultimately,
marriage between
Orthodox and non-
Orthodox Jews will
become increasingly
institutions play a more pro-
active role in dealing with
issues of intermarriage, Jew-
ish identity and reinforcing
Jewish life, then the heart of
the community may remain
Leaders in American Jewish
communal life are not com-
pletely convinced by Professor
Tobin's predictions or his pre-
scribed solutions.
Larry Rubin, associate exec-
utive vice-chairman of
NJCRAC, sees a much more
favorable forecast for the
American Jewish community
in the 21st century.
"I would disagree with a
forecast that predicts gloom
and doom for tne Jewish com-
munity," he says. "The Jewish
community is vibrant and
exciting and there's no reason
for it not to continue to be this
"These problems are import-
ant, but it seems to me that
Jewish organizations have a
responsibility to stress the val-
ues and virtues of the com-
munity. I'm not suggesting
that we should be complacent;
we can always do better. But
the fact that not all Jews are
active doesn't mean that we
are doomed.
"That we are a well-
organized community with
many institutions and channels
is part of why we maintain our
vitality. I'm sorry to sound so
optimistic." Rubin said.
