USSR intensifies campaign to
curtail contacts with foreigners'
recently intensified Soviet
campaign to curtail informal
contacts between Soviet citizens
and foreigners was highlighted
by several incidents, summarized
in the monthly digest on
monitoring activities issued by
the Commission on Security and
Cooperation in Europe (CSCE).
As examples of the Soviet
Union's stepped-up campaign,
the digest cited the detainment of
former Israeli President Ephraim
Katzir by the Leningrad KGB on
July 1, the detainment of U.S.
diplomats Jon Purnell and
George Glass for two hours by
the Moscow KGB on July 4, and
the refusal by Soviet authorities
to grant Soviet citizens who are
married to Americans the right to
Further evidence of the official
Soviet campaign to discourage
unofficial contacts between
Soviet citizens and foreigners can
be found in a new Soviet law
which went into effect on July 1,
and was published in the Bulletin
of the Supreme Soviet on May 30.
This law provides for fines of up
to 50 Rubles for citizens who
provide transportation, housing
or "other services" to foreigners
Fines can also be levied against
those who do not make sure that
foreigners follow registration
procedures with the local police.
The law states that officials in
organizations that deal with
foreigners are also liable for fines
up to 100 Rubles. Furthermore,
both officials and citizens may be
tried on criminal charges for
contacts with foreigners if they
violate "existing legislation."
Precisely whfct that other legisla-
tion specifies is not clarified in
any way, the CSCE report stated.
Several cases of reunification
of Soviet citizens married to
Americans were also mentioned
in the digest: Moscow scientist
Mstvey Finkel, married to Susan
Graham of Spokane,
Washington, has just received
his eighth exit denial; Ukrainian
Alekuei Lodisev has been trying
since April 1981 to get permis-
sion to join his wife, Sandra
Gubin; and Roman Kuperman,
married to Chicago lawyer Fern
Pericht, has bean repeatedly
denied an exit visa because his
departure is considered to be
"undesirable" by the state.
The CSCE report declared:
"The denial of permission to
emigrate in such cases is not only
against humanitarian principles,
but it is contrary to both the
letter of the Helsinki Final Act in
which the Soviet Union and the
other signatories pledged to deal
'favorably' with cases involving
family reunification and marriage
between citizens of different
In a related story, the State
Department issued an advisory
warning Americans against
going to Leningrad because of
the "unlawful detentions" of U.S.
tourists and the "arbitrary"
search of their luggage in the
Soviet city.
While Jewish organizations
concerned with Soviet Jewry
have apparently expected the
move, they had no immediate
reaction on how this would affect
their efforts to keep in contact
with Jewish refuseniks in
The advisory came after an
American marine guard and the
U.S. Consulate in Leningrad were
beaten by Soviet uniformed and
plainclothes police outside the
Consulate. There was no mention
of this in the advisory.

have been to Israel, that last tiny
refuge of Jewish hope isolated in
a eea of hatred and tension, a part
of the world where, nonwith-
standing the temperature ex-
tremes and feeling of living on a
day to day basis, the people still
have time to reach out and touch
visitors in a most sincere way, a
country where being Jewish

This was truly not a "tour" of
Israel, this was a mission, the
United Jewish Appeal Singles
Mission of Summer "84 Hatik-
vah. The difference between a
tour and a mission can only be
summarized in that we did not
go, the 450 of us, to simply visit
the ruins, the sites, and other
places of interest, rather it was to
be able to immerse ourselves in
Israeli life, to understand its
daily functions and to appreciate
what our Israeli partners are
doing in this blossoming desert.
The Newest Aliyah ...
A Unique Absorption Problem
UJA In the nursery school
of Absorption Center Shimshon
in Ashkelon, ten black-eyed
Falasha toddlers were playing
with clay as children do in every
kindergarten and nursery in
Israel. Their drawings, proudly
displayed on the classroom walls,
were signed with the new Israeli
names they received just two
months ago Kfir, Arza.
Navah, Zivah. "Shoene Kin-
der lach," murmured the grey
haired man who stepped into the
room to watch them play. In a
short time the children had joined
their teacher to sing Hevenu
Shalom Aleichem to their guest,
Leon A. Dulzin, Chairman of the
Jewish Agency.
Dulzin's visit underscored the
special attention being given to
the unique absorption problems
of the Falashas. For the first time
in their lives, these newcomers to
Israel are confronting water
faucets, toilets, gas heating, elec-
tricity, multiple room dwellings.
They are experimenting with
modern homemaking, and are
patiently being taught personal
hygiene. A visitor to Absorption
Center Shimshon must be
prepared to disconnect a little
from the 20th century. One must
think back 2,000 years to visual-
ize the Falasha life-style in
Absorption of the Falashas,
Dulzin was told by the
madrichim who work with this
latest Aliyah on a daily basis, is
absolutely different from the
regular absorption of newcomers.
The standard process takes five
months, while Falashas stay in
the center for ten months.
Before they can make their
way independently in Israeli
society, Kfir, Arza, Navah and
their parents will have to bridge
drastic health, cultural and
educational gaps. Many Falshas,
especially the children, come to
Israel suffering from tropical
diseases and other afflictions that
have never been properly treated.
Most of the newcomers have
never learned to read any
language, and must start Hebrew
instruction by learning the
concept that a written shape has
a sound equivalent. Adults are
struggling for the first time to
write numbers and work arith-
metic problems. Yet the problem
is more far-reaching than basic
literacy: before leaving Ethiopia,
some of the Falashas had never
ssen anyone with fair skin.
Ten months is a short time to
cross a distance of 2,000 years.
Early in the absorption process,
special social workers counsel the
Falshas in an attempt to reduce
grave psychological tensions
caused by the cultural gap. The
fact that many of the immigrants
have left families in Ethiopia
adds to their stress.
During his visit, Dulzin spent
time with a class of people age 40
Kibbutz experience in Israel
and older. They looked week and
tired, as if still suffering from the
cumulative effects of long-term
malnutrition and the rigors of
their journey to Israel.
"I am washing my hands ."
their madricha taught them in
Hebrew. "He is washing his
hands she is washing her
hands." Slowly, and with dif-
ficulty, the class repeated the
One of the madrichim ex-
plained: "They come with only
the shirts on their backs. We
cover all expenses, even health
insurance, a level of support not
given even to immigrants from
the needy countries." But finan-
cial questions will not decide the
fate of the Falasha Aliyah, an
Aliyah which comes as if from
another world.
In the past 36 years, Aliyot
have been absorbed with varying
degrees of success. Yehuda
Dominitz, Director of the Aliyah
and Absorption Department of
the Jewish Agency, is optimistic
about the Falasha. He recalls the
Aliyah of the Jews of Cochin
(China) today the pride of
Israel's agricultural settlements.
Yet. the Falashas are adjusting
slowly. The harrowing nature of
their escape from Ethiopia, their
dark color and the culture gap
make them a unique phenomenon
in an absorption program that
has been known to accomplish
Mission '84 met at the El Al
terminal at New York's JFK
Airport. We had a briefing
session and remittance of our of-
ficial T-shirts, then proceeded to
fill the jumbo jet at every comer.
My sympathies to the crew who
had to bring an extra measure of
patience on board to deal with
this full load. Needless to say few
of us got much sleep but this was
part of the welding process, a
development of a unique friend-
ship which will last us a lifetime.
The "average" agenda of any
day on a mission was a wake up
call at 6 a.m., elaborate breakfast
at 7 a.m. and then hitting the
buses at 8 a.m. for a FULL day of
appreciation of Israel and its
people, which are our people. It's
the first time I have ever been in
a city where I have felt that
everyone seems related to me.
Personally, one of the most
moving experiences was our visit
to the Golan Heights and parti-
cularly the former Syrian strong-
holds. Alex, our tour guide,
explained in minute detail, the
thought that went behind every
maneuver, every convoy and dis-
placement of personnel and
equipment. We touched and felt
the strength of the Syrian
bunkers, the exposure of the
Israeli kibbutz just below within
firing range. The vulnerability of
He Honors
President Luis Alberto Monge of
Costa Rica has affirmed his
country's "free and sovereign
determination to honor Jeru-
salem as the capital of Israel."
Monge made the statement in
a cable to Edgar Bronfman,
president of the World Jewish
Congress. It was in response to a
cable of encouragement
Bronfman sent to the Costa
Rican President following the
walk-out by Arab delegations at
the conference of the Inter-
national Labor Organization in
Geneva last month when Monge
rose to address the gathering.

year round. Temporary workers
can go for a minimum working

There are several openings in the

The ulpan offers participants a
chance to study the Hebrew
language and use it daily as
well as to familiarize themselves
with Israeli geography and
history. Ah of this is coupled
with the unique experience of
living and working on kibbutz.
Open to applicants between the
ages of 17'/. and 36, the parti-
cipants receive food, lodging, and
limited pocket money while on
kibbutz. Many universities
recognize the ulpan program for

Temporary workers must make
a commitment to remain on kib-
butz for a minimum period of one
month, and may be able to
arrange to stay on and work. Age
limits are between 17'/i and 32,
and participants receive food and
lodging also.
Kibbutzim have built a
reputation in Israel on a firm
foundation of hard work. Parti-
cipants are expected to work
shoulder-to-shoulder with Israeli
co-workers and perform labor of a
physical nature, generally in the
agricultural branches of the
Ulpanists are required to work
half a day and study half a day.
The Kibbutz programs are
designed to introduce American

AIPAC visible at Democratic National Convention
While delegates, lobbyists, and

Imade its presence known to those

from across the country.
The largest and most visible
display of support for Israel
during the four days took place at
a breakfast by AIPAC for all
Members of Congress, Jewish
delegates, DNC party officials,
and the San Francisco pro-Israel
activists. Nearly 800 people,
including more than 100
senators, representatives,
governors, and mayors showed
up for eggs and bagels. The event
featured San Francisco Mayor
Dianne Feinstein, who spoke
about the honor of being the first
Jewish woman to be seriously
considered for the job of vice
president; Joan Mondale;
California Lt. Governor Leo
McCarthy, the state's highest
ranking Democratic official; and
AIPAC executive director
Thomas A. Dine, who praised the

weekend before he planned to
introduce the bill, he was angered
by reports that three churches
used by Black congregations in
South Carolina had been burned
and a synagogue in Gaithers-
burg, Md. had been desecrated.
Timanus noted that during the
1960's, when Black churches were
being bombed in the south the
FBI would only enter the case on
the grounds of civil rights
The Glickman bill provides
penalties of up to 15 years in
prison and-or fines of $15,000 for
anyone convicted of willfully
vandalizing, defacing, burning or
otherwise destroying or
damaging any cemetery, building
or other property used for
religious purposes, or any
religious articles within the
property. Should a death occur
from such actions, the bill
provides for life imprisonment.
A comprehensive curriculum
on the teaching of Israel in
Jewiah schools throughout the
world has been developed by the
Hebrew University hi coopera-
tion with the Department of
Education and Culture of the
World Zionist Organization.
This summer, Abraham J.
Gittelson, CAJE, Director of
Jewiah Education for the Jewish
Federation of Greater Ft.
Lauderdale, and Glady.
Schleicher, Eduction Director of
Temple Sba'aray Tzadek, parti-
cipated in an intensive three week
seminar for the purpose of imple-
menting the program in selected
pilot schools in the North Bor-
ward area.
The program is series of
sequential units of instruction on
modern Israel developed by the
Melton Center for Jewish Educ-
tion in the Diaspora of the
Hebrew University, under the
direction of Professor Barry
Chazan. The units, which en be
used in schools, camps and youth
groups are designed to deepen
and enlighten the relationship
between young Jews and the
State of Israel, and to help them
engender a personal, meaningful
relationship with the modern
Jewish State.
Gittelson noted that "Israel
has always played a central role
in the world-view of Judaism.
This graded curriculum will
enable schools to develop an
increasingly meaningful rela-
tionship for students to
strengthen their ties and their
bve with the land and the State
of Israel."
The seminar included intensive
review and analysis of each of the
units, combined with meetings
with Israelis from all walks of life
who reflected the multi-facited
Jewiah arista nee that mark,
contemporary Israeli society.
Schleicher explained that the
2nd grade unit, for example, was
built around the theme of "My
Jewish Friend. Around the
World." The material describes
the daily life, activities, games
and interests of Israeli children
and the ways they .re similar and
differ from the experience, of .
Jewish child in America.
On an upper grade level, the
unit entitled "Issue, in Israel
Diaspora Relationships" deal,
with questions of identity,
ethnicity, and view, of Jewish life
in America and Israel. A variety
of activities are included in each
unit, including role playing,
socio-dramas, simulations, etc.
Gittelson will be meeting with
the educational directors of the
are. to select those schools that
will want to introduce the units
into their program.

The move to introduce an anti-
racism bill is spearheaded by
Mayor Teddy Kollek of Jeru-
salem, but at least two other
groups plan a nationwide petition
in support of an anti-racism law.
Kollek, in an appeal to the
Knesset members, said they
must not allow small but
dangerous groups like Kach to
act according to "dark passions
and ideas" that "undermine the
basic moral tenets of the State."
A first move toward enacting
such legislation was undertaken
by Mapam MK. Dov Zakin and
Klazar Granot. The two called on

speaks judiciously, in carefully
composed sentences, as if he
coming from Poland, via the
underground, and Zeiglebaum
would share them with me. And
I would share them with my
government. Obviously. It was
my job.
"Zeiglebaum came to me at
the time of the Warsaw ghetto
uprising in May, 1943. He
advised me that Jews were
fighting in the ghetto. He also
had a dossier on what was hap-
pening in Auschwitz. By that
time, 2 or 3 million Jews had
already been killed.
"But a Pole named Jan
Karski. a very courageous fellow
who was 19 or 20 at the time,
dressed up in an Rsthonian
policeman's uniform and went
into Auschwitz. He got out and
brought with him pictures of the
crematoria, of the bodies, of
people who had died of starva-
tion, and affidavits from in-
mates of what was going on. It
was a compelling document.
"WE HAD heard about the
actual killing from 1941 on.
because we had broken the
Germans' code and we were
intercepting cables which, if you
read them carefully, indicated
that Jews were being trans-
ported to death camps. But this
was the first time that someone
from inside a camp had actually
brought out material.
"So Zeiglebaum, who gave me
the dossier, said that the Jews
had two requests, one from
Auschwitz and another from the
ghetto, to have the places
"I raised the natural question.
If the ghetto is bombed, won't
Jews be killed, too? Zeiglebaum
said yes, they knew that, but
they would like the Germans
killed. They were going to be
killed anyhow, he said he
put it to me very bluntly and
they wanted the ghetto bombed.
"They were armed with very
insufficient weapons against
tanks flame throwers and so
on and their armament was

"I know that the truth some-
times hurts," he said. "But as
Shakespeare said. "The truth
will out.' How else are we to
prevent a repetition, if we do
not learn the lessons of the
"BUT THERE is another
reason, a personal incident that
led me to believe that we must
seek the truth about the
Holocaust. In 1943, I was in
London with the OSS (the
predecessor to the CIA. headed
by General "Wild Bill"
Donovan). I was a major,
special assistant to General
"I had a letter of introduction
from the Jewish Labor Com-
mittee to a fellow by the name
of Shmuel Zeiglebaum. He was
the representative of the Polish
socialist party in exile in
Finland. The Polish government
had many intelligence reports
"THE SECOND request,
from the inmates of Auschwitz,
was to have the railroad junc-
transports came every day by
the thousands from all over
Europe, bombed. And they also
wanted the camp itself bombed.
"And again I raised the ques-
tion: Won't that kill them?
The answer was, They'll be
killed anyway.'
"So I sent a courier to
Washington with Zeiglebaum s
requests to Gen. Donovan,
asking him to take it up with
the highest authority. Donovan
was a good man. and I believe
that he did what I asked,
because a few days later he sent
a messenger back to me. saying
that he was taking it up with
the highest authority, our high
"The answer was that they
could not do this because it
would divert planes from their
primary mission of going after
Germans We were bombing five
miles from Auschwitz at the
time. It wouldn't have been a
very great diversion.
"So it was my sad duty to
call Zeiblebaum I had him to
dinner and give him the
response. The next day he com-
mitted suicide.
"SO MAYBE, if you ask why
I was willing to probe the ques-
tions raised by the Holocaust. I
don't think there can be a sen-
sible argument as to why the
facts shouldn't be brought to
light. Because we have to learn
the lessons. And I must say we
Justice Goldbert reviewed the
lessons and attributed the
responsibility for the tragedy,
based on the report of the Com-
mission on the Holocaust.
"I rate what happened as
follows," he said. "Hitler was of
course a killer. He stands in a
class by himself. No Jew did the
"Second comes the anti-
Semitism or indifference of the
Allied governments. They could
have opened their doors in the
period between 1933 and 1939
and rescued a considerable
number of Jews. But the
restrictive immigration laws of
the so-called democratic, civil-
ized, countries prevented them.
"SO HITLER killed the Jews.
What we're dealing with is
rescue. Could some have been
rescued? My conclusion is yes
Hundreds of thousands could
have been saved. So I blame
governments first; their indif-
ference and anti-Semitism.
Maybe indifference is on a
slightly lower scale than anti-
Semitism. Not very much.
"Third comes the media
outside of the Yiddish press'
The Yiddish press had a grod
many stories about the killings
But the general press had very
few. So I rate the media as very
responsible, not for the kfllhw
but for the non-rescue.
"After that. I rate the indif-
ference of the Christian com-
munity. There were righteous

"WHEN IT comes to the
Jews, the Jewish organizations
did not do all that they could
have done. But in their defense,
if there is a defense for not
having done all that could have
been done, we must remember
that the Jewish organizations of
40 years ago were not what they
are today. There was no Jewish
lobby, they were just emerging
from immigrant status, the
principal spokesmen were two
rabbis, Stephen Wise and Aba
Hillel Silver.
"Today, the spokesmen for
the Jewish community are
presidents of Jewish organize

The lessons to be learned
from the Holocaust experience.
Justice Goldberg pointed out,
are simple, but among the most
difficult to act upon.
"When human rights are
violated." he said, "whether it's
Jews or anybody else, you have
to raise your voice, not just
submit. You may not do good
immediately, but you must
speak out.
"I had a conversation with
Russian dissidents, both Jewish
and non-Jewish, when I was
ambassador-at-large to a human
rights convention in Belgrade.
They had been expelled or
escaped from the Soviet Union.
So I asked them, 'You know,
I'm willing to be very vigorous
at this meeting. Is that going to
hurt those who remain? I'm not
anxious to hurt them.'
"THE ANSWER I got was
uniform: Please go ahead. It
may not help in terms of
persuading the Russian govern-
ment, but the Jews and other
dissidents still inside will not
feel alone. They will have the
sense that people are conscious
of their plight.
"Another thing we have
learned (and that world Jewry
has learned. I hope) is never to
repeat the role of what was
called the Judmnt. Those were
the heads of the Jewish commu-
nities in Europe who I think,
basically out of good motives
dealt with the Nazis. Step by
step, they had to provide the
usts of the people the Nazis
wanted. And they aU landed in
Auschwitz, by the way.
'But beyond that, the
conscientious ones, who took it
because they hoped to have an
ameliorating influence, learned
that they were being used to
keep Jews quiet.
"It is this type of thing that I
thmk has to be talked about.
We do not cooperate nor col-
laborate. You know you're going
to be killed anyhow, but at least
you save your own conscience.

"We listened to that wonderful
Jewiah music on New York radio
as we grew up. Now we want to
make that available to South
Florida's Jews." said Davidman.
"We don't want to play just for
those people who were raised on

The ahow will also feature a
"community bulletin board." and
news events from Israel. The
Jewiah Federation of Greater Ft.
Lauderdale will supply upcoming
events that will be listed in the
'community bulletin board.'
According to Davidman and
Aaron, there will be some solemn
pieces, Hebrew folk songs,
English-language songs with
Jewish themes as well as Israeli
rock and roll songs much like
those on our local rock and roll
stations. For Davidman and
Aaron, the content of the show;
the music, the humor, will be the
star of this program.
Expressing his motivation for
such a show, Aaron said, "I love
the Jews. They're my people .

sense of peoplehood, I'm in favor
"Everyone has a 'hot button'
in music, all you have to do is
find it" stated Davidman. The

She advised the Jewish com-
munal leaders in Israel and
America to prepare for the up-
coming United Nations-
sponsored "International
Women'8 Decade Conference" to
be held in Nairobi in 1985.
In the past, countries that
most strenuously attacked Israel
at these conferences were coun-
tries that opposed equality for
women and used an assault on
Zionism to direct attention away
from legitimate women's issues,
she noted.
Bar-Yosef stressed that while
Jewish women in Israel and the
United States face many similiar
problems, Israeli women face
special problems intrinsic to their
own society.
She cited the four principle
obstacles faced by women in
Israel: "The segregation of
women and men, no access for
women to the higher levels of
religious education, the exclusion
of women from any function of
judicial authority in the rabbin-
ical judicial system, and the as-
symetric status of men and
women in the family."

ship has been started by the Dor
Hemshech, an affiliate of the
Jewish Agency, in cooperation
with Yeshiva University.
Dor Hemshech, which means
Young Leadership, has its basic
offices in Israel and its United
States and Canada office at 515
Park Avenue in Manhattan.
Danny Vermus, director of Dor
Hemshech for the U.S. and
Canada, said the American
operation had been in effect for
more than five years. He said its
ultimate goal is to establish close
rapport, communication and
cooperation between American
Jewish young leaders and their
peers in Israel.
Vermus said that starting this
fall at Yeshiva University, about
100 young men and women, aged
20 to 25, will enter Yeshiva
University, fully accredited in
their studies and earn up to 32
credits for their year's study at
Yeshiva University.
During their two semesters,
the students will participate in
seminars on Jewish identity,
Zionist thought, Israeli society
and the American Jewish com-
munity. Vermus said that Dor
Hemshech will seek to focus their
studies on their ties to Israel.
They will also be asked to take an
active cart in a Jewish leadership
training program which will
include field work involvement in
the Greater New York Jewish
community. The year-long study
program will also include acad-
emic courses on elementary,
intermediate and advance lcels
in Hebrew and English and
Torah study.
Asked what the joint program
plans were for the 100 students
after they complete the program
and whether a commitment to
serve in Israel was a requirement,
Vermus said that no such a com-
mitment was part of the
program, but that it was "hoped"
that the participants would want
to go to Israel to serve as a
cooperative element between
American and Israel youth.

Warning against amending Who is a Jew9 law \ CRC UPDATE
prominent American-Jewa
warned that any amendment to
the Who is a Jew law might split
the unity of the Jewiah people
and create serioua breaches in
Israel-diaspora relations.
The warning was raised at a
press conference by Theodore
Minn, president of the American
Jewish Congress, Dr. Simon
Greenberg. vice chancellor of the
Jewish Theological Seminary of
America. Rabbi Jack Cohen of
B'nai B'rith. and Rabbi Richard
Hirsh of the World Union for
Progressive Judaism. Their
organizations published a quarter
page ad in The Jerusalem Post
entitled "Am Ehad Preserve
Our Unity"
The call was part of an overall
effort by the non-Orthodox
trends in Judaism to foil at-
tempts by the religious parties in
Israel to secure a promise from
whichever party forms the next
government to change the Who is
a Jew law so that it would only
recognize those conversions per-
formed according to halacha
{Jewish law), that is, according to
the Orthodox interpretation of
The present Who is a Jew law,
or the Law of Return, gives every
Jew the right to enter Israel and
receive automatic citizenship. It
was adopted shortly after Israel
declared its independence in
1948. It applies to born Jews and

Although the amendment to
the Who is a Jew law would not
have any immediate affect on
Israeli-diaspora relations, Mann
warned that a long-term conse-
quence would be steady erosion
of sympathy of non-Orthodox
American Jews toward what they
would regard as their State, too.
Hirsch pointed out that as a
result of an amendment, "We
may face a situation in which a
very high percentage of Jewiah
people may not be considered
Jews" in Israel. He urged that
representatives of all Jewish
religious trends meet to discuss
the problem and to propose
The Jewish leaders said they

Emanu-El gets female cantor
Rita Shore
Temple Emanu-El, 3246 W.
Oakland Park Blvd., announces
the appointment of Rita Shore as
the Temple's new cantor.
Mrs. Shore had her musical
training at Julliard School of
Music in New York. Shore
started her career as a soprano
soloist in the choir of Temple
Judea, Coral Gables. In April
1974, she became the first woman
Chaplain in the history of the
Florida Senate and House Repre-
sentatives to offer the opening
prayer at their first session.
Shore, who is married and has
two children, sees her role as a
cantor in the traditional light, as
a "tzibur," a messenger of the
people and an intermediary
between the worshippers and
Having recently been ap-
pointed the new chairman of the
Community Relations Committee
(CRC) of the Jewiah Federation
of Greater Ft. Lauderdale, I felt a
positive innovation would be the
periodic publication of a CRC
UPDATE. The purpose of the
column is to let the community
gain an awareness of those
issues, both national and local,
which the CRC is involved with.
For example, while the Soviets
have been blocking Jewish
emigration, the National Jewish
Community Relations Advisory
Committee (NJCRAC) on
Ethiopian Jews have reported
that over 700,000 Ethiopian Jews
have already arrived in Israel.
On the home front, regarding
the separation of church and
state. The Senate has recently
passed the Equal Access Bill
which opens up the public schools
to religious activities after school
hours. This is frowned upon by
NJCRAC and will be a topic for
discussion at one of our up-
coming meetings.
There has been mixed feelings
regarding Christian Evangelical
support for Israel since the
support has been essentially a
first for the groups proselytizing
activities on both the U.S. and
Israel. A debate currently exists
over what threshold of mis-
sionary activities constitutes suf-
ficient concern for Jewish groups
to sever relations with such
evangelical organizations.
Finally, and according to the
bulletin by NJCRAC in June of
this year, other issues which need
careful watching are:
a report on disturbing
trends in Jewish voting and
registration patterns presented
to the Commission on Individual
Freedom and Jewish Security.
Measures to counter the
anti-Semitic content of the 1984
version of the Oberammergau

AJCongress issues report on Iran/Iraq war
85 Jews emigrate in July
NEW YORK (JTA) The National Conference on Soviet
Jewry reported that 86 Jews left the Soviet Union in July. This,
the Conference said, continued the low rate of emigration for thta
year. A total of 27 Jews emigrated in May. According to the
Geneva-based Intergovernmental Committee for Migration, 556
Jews left the Soviet Union during the first six months of this
year. 267 of whom went to Israel.
American strategic interests m
the Middle East would best be
served by a policy of strict
neutrality in the Iran-Iraq war in
place of the current "tilt" toward
Iraq, says an American Jewish
Congress report.
Characterizing the four-year-
old conflict as "gruesome," the
study, published by the
organization's Commission on
International Affairs, says the
war appears to be unwinnsble by
either side. It contends that to a
large extent the U.S. favors Iraq
because of frustration and
humiliation over the 1979-81
hostage crisis and last year's as-
sault on the Marines' compound
in Beirut.
The tilt toward Iraq, says the
report, which was prepared by
American Jewish Congress policy
analyst Raphael Danziger and
associate executive director Phil
Baum. ignores the fact that
American long-term interests call
for encouraging Iran to re-
establish ties with the West after
the passing of the Khomeini

number of incidents of harass-
ment involving Americans in the
Soviet Union. The majority of
serious incidents has occurred in
the Leningrad area."
The advisory noted that there
has been "unlawful detention of
tourists by the Soviet security
organs following innocent
contacts with Soviet citizens"
and that tourists have been
denied the right to contact the
U.S. Consulate despite the U.S.-
Soviet Consular Convention
which gives them this right.
The advisory also said "Amer-
ican tourists have been also
subject to arbitrary and in many
cases unjustifiably embarrassing
searches of their personal effects
on arriving or departing from
Leningrad International Airport.
The Soviet authorities have not
responded in a satisfactory
manner to our urgent request
that they act immediately to
correct this situation."
The primary U.S. objective
should be "to strengthen those
groups in Iran moat likely to
succeed the mullahs," the report
declares, noting that the moat
likely pro-Western groups are the
regular military forces and the
middle class.
"There are dear indications
that many members of these
groups would eagerly restore
Iran to the Western camp if the
United States were to make it
possible for them to do so,"
contends the report, which is
entitled, "The Iran-Iraq War:
Options for the United States
and Israel."
Israel's strategic interest
largely coincides with American
interests with regard to the Iran-
Iraq war, according to the report
It dtea a recant statement bt
Richard W. Murphy, Assistai
Secretary of State for Ns*

The study condudes: "Both

viable Iranian state; and both
would benefit immensely from
the replacement of the Khomeini
regime by a pro-Western govern
ment." It adds that then in-
terests would be best served by
an American reversion from i
policy of tilting toward Iraq to
one of strict neutrality in the
Iran-Iraq conflict.

Na'amat members gather
in peace and harmony
"Who says we can't live
together?" That was the com-
ment of one of the members of
Na'amat's Pardes Chana
Kharkur branch following a
recent visit to a Na'amat branch
in the Arab village of Taibeh that
was marked by warm socializing,
good food and spirited folk
A contingent of 50 members
from Pardes Chana, laden with
homemade food, travelled by bus
to the Arab village to reciprocate
a visit the Arab women had made
to Pardes Chana.
"We all felt a bit uneasy and
anxious.'' said one of the Jewish
women en route to the exchange
visit. "We wondered how it
would work out. But when we
arrived, and were greeted with
such warm hospitality, our mis-
givings disappeared.''
Na'amat is Israel's largest
women's organization, with
750,000 members, including
thousands of Arab and Druse
women. Currently Na'amat
operates 43 clubs in Israel
directed by trained Arab women
with the aid of local volunteers
and specialists, that conduct
educational and social services
for Arab families.

Twinning' A symbol of solidarity
Bar-Bat Mitzvah "twinning"
is a concept involving a growing
number of boys and girls who
share their ceremony with Jewish
youngsters in the Soviet Union.
It is a personal way of activating
the bond that exists between
World Jewry and Soviet Jewry.

Korman of Coral Springs will
celebrate her Bat Mitzvah at
Temple Beth Israel, Sunrise.
That same Shabbat will be the
date of Anna Kheifeta Bat
Mitzvah, according to the Jewish
calendar. Anna lives in
Leningrad and is denied the
teaching of Jewish education and
language. Therefore, chances for

immigration into the future Jew- reports that armed Arabs were
ish "national homeland" was moving without restriction
strictly controlled by the British across the border into Israel, and
(brutally so, after 1939) and
eventually limited to smaller and
smaller numbers.
Searching out the whys and
wherefores of that particular
irony led Peters into some heart-
rending history, not all of it new
but tellingly presented.
Among other things the book
assaults a current Arab myth
that Islam had no trouble with
the Jews until Zionism reared its
ugly head. Making use of non-
Jewish witnesses and sources,
she produces a convincing
chronicle of calumny, degra-
dation and massacre visited upon
Jews in the Arab world from the
time of Mohammad onward. This
strain of behavior reached some
sort of mad apogee in the Grand
Mufi of Jerusalem, a religious
leader who fomented terrorism
against Jews in Israel for years
and was finally installed in Berlin
by Adolf Hitler in 1941. with
Nazi funds to continue his fight
from far off. On one occasion the
mufti personally intervened with
a lenient plan to let 900 Jewish
children go free of the death
camps. "The Jews," he wrote, are
planning "the domination of the
world from this important,
strategic center, Palestine."
Peters' searches roam back
through history to the time of the
rise and spread of Islam. Her
main concern, though, is with the
period when the British con-
trolled Palestine after World War
I, and under the Balfour Delca-
ration were committed to create a
Jewish independent state once
"Jews were the majority of the
country and had set up their
governing apparatus," as well as
to facilitate "immigration" and
"close settlement" by Jews. But
they soon gave away three-
fourths of the mandated
territory, eventually making the
Arab nation of Tranajordan (now
simply Jordan). And, as Peters
shows, the British all but
abandoned the original project
because of Arab nationalism (and
terrorism) plus their own ansti-
Semitism and a growing fear of
driving the racist Arabs entirely
into the racist arms of Adolf
This policy reversal went

cited the murder (within a three-
month period) of seven Pales-
tinian village chiefs who had
dared express moderate attitudes
toward possible co-existence with
the Jews. He had long urged, too,
that the British establish a
system of identity cards, listing
place of origin, in order to help
control the terrorism and illegal
entry as well.
MacKereth's superiors in
London, noting that he did not
appreciate "the wider issues
involved," shunted him off to an
obscure post in Latin America
but not until his fife had been
threatened three times for
sustaining a "people whom all
the world hates and whom Allah,
the all powerful, also hates."
When it came to catering to
that hatred, British policy seems
to have reached some sort of
zenith (or nadir) in 1942, s year
when Jews, denied entry into Is-
rael, were dying by White Paper
of 1939, the British, acceding to
Arab agitation about "over-
crowding," had agreed to keep
Jewish immigration into Pales-
tine down to 10,000 s year. But so
stringent did His Majesty's
financial and political standards
become that in all of 1942 only
3,038 Jews managed to enter
their homeland-to-be. In that
same period, Peters notes, nearly
10,000 Arabs, mostly from Syris
and Lebanon, but some from
Egypt and the Sudan, were
brought in.
Not all of this is news, either,
nor is the fret that despite ex-
pressions of humane and high-
minded concern about the Pales-
tinian refugees today, the Arab
world has refused to do much
about their plight, even to the
extent of denying citizenship to
Palestinians who have been
working for years in neighboring
countries, often at skilled jobs.
But that exploitative position
has blurred in our memory of
late, so greet has been the general
need for oil, so crucial it has
seemed to entertain some shred
of hope that in the post Sadat era
a measure of reason may yet
triumph in the Middle East.
It may be useful, then, to be
reminded by the author of a trip
she took to Syria in 1977 to
conduct interviews with Syrian
officials. At the time the Syrians
wanted to develop a Euphrates
dam and irrigation system,
Peters reports, and needed
outside laborers, as well aa
technicians, for the job. The
minister of trade had suggested
that Syria would give plots of
land to anyone who would come
and work it. "Why not to Palee-
tinian refugees?" Peters wanted
to know. "We will give the land
to anyone who comes" was the
reply, to "Ibos, the Koreans, the
Americans anyone but the
Palestinians. We must keep their
hatred directed against Israel."
Peters seems to feel that If the
world is reminded of just how the
refugee situation came to be.
