Oshry's have opened then-
house for this event," Sherr
added. "The Oshry'a are
very dedicated people who
are deeply involved in a
variety of Jewish concerns.
Their participation and
involvement in community
activities is truly mar-
velous."
In the Woodlands both
Harold and Claire Oshry
have played leadership
roles on behalf of Jewish
organizations. Harold has
served on the Woodlands
UJA campaign cabinet.
Claire has served on the
Woodlands campaign com-
mittee of the Women's
Division. Last year Harold
Oshry was the honoree at
the Woodlands UJA
dinner. He and Claire have
been very active in UJA
activities in New York
where among many posi-
tions, Harold was the Com-
mittee Chairman for
Project Renewal on the
South Shore of Long
Island.
"The Oshry's have found
time to share their lives
with their children as well
as a host of friends with
their continued involve-
ment in religious
and business associa-
tion!," Sherr concluded.
Workshop on Visually Impaired
A workshop on services to visually impaired senior
adults will be held Monday. Dec. 10, from 9 a.m. to
12 noon at the Jewish Community Center, 6601 W.
Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale.
The program is geared for professionals and com-
munual leaders in social agencies which aid senior
adult clients.
The workshop is being sponsored by the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale, Planning De-
partment, and is being coordinated by the Jewish
Braille Institute of America, Inc.
In a recent national survey, two out of three older
Americans stated that they consider poor vision their
biggest health problem.
The program will cover such topics as vision and
aging, the human eye, its structure, functions and
disorders, low vision examination and optical aids,
rehabilitation services, and library services and
alternatives to the printed page.
Local optometrists and opthalmologists will be
among the experts to address the workshop.
The workshop is free.

who had come to bring
greetings from the city

to cool off the demonstra-

Flynn down, the demon-
strators insisted that
Jacobovici be allowed to
speak. They then linked
arms and sat on the floor,
Jacobovici with the child
still in his arms.
"We are delegates here,"
Jacobovici insisted. "You
have no right to refuse us

don't want a special forum.

rejected by the demon-
strators. Both Ronen and
Jacobs turned down the
offer to speak.
Finally, Citrin adjourned
the plenary and the micro-
phones were disconnected.
As Jacobovici climbed on a
chair to speak, shouting
matches broke out all over
the hall. Ronen said he had
refused to address the
session because Network
had not organized the
demonstration.
"Much of the effort was
made by CAJE (the
Canadian Association for
Jews in Ethiopia) and their
spokesman is Simcha
Jacobovici," Ronen said. "I
don't sympathize with their
actions (in carrying the
demonstration this far) but
I sympathize with their
cause. I think this issue
should have a much higher
priority." Jacobs, visibly
tense, refused to comment.
Cardin said that
Jacobovici was not offered
the platform because "I
don't think that at this
point he would have held to
the five minutes. We
wanted someone we could
rely on." She said the

National Hillel Conference held in Washington
Jewish college students from
across the country converged on
Wsshington, D.C. to attend
Washington 3, the third national
Jewish student conference on
public policy issues. This event,
which took place from Oct. 21 to
24 at the National 4H Conference
Center, was sponsored by the
national office of the B'nai B'rith
Hillel Foundations in association
with the International Council of
B'nai B'rith and B'nai B'rith
Women. Cosponsors were
AIPAC, the University Services
Department of the American
Zionist Youth Foundation, the
Student Coalition for Soviet
Jewry and the University
Programs Department of the
United Jewish Appeal.
Among the two hundred par-
ticipants were 10 students from
Florida universities. They came
to hear experts discuss recent
developments in United States-
Israel relations, the formation of
the new Israeli government, the
status of oppressed Jewry in the
Soviet Union and Ethiopia, and
the current status of American
domestic and foreign policy. The
purpose of the conference was to
introduce students to a range of
views on major issues of concern
within the American Jewish
community and to develop

psychological, career and family

For example, The Ein Karem
Agricultural High School near
Jerusalem, which has 270 teen-
agers, has been unable to pur-
chase vocational training equip-
ment such as a metalwork lathe,
Ze'ev Tischler, the school's
director, has reported. Tischler
has also been forced to eliminate
a university lecturers series,
tours to introduce the youngsters
to the people of the Negev and
Galilee, and cultural enrichment
programs in art, music and
crafts. Other residences and
centers are similarly affected.
Aliyah teenagers need such
programs and services to kern
skills for self-support, gain a
sense of Israeli society and their
role in it, and develop their
talents. Lack of basic equipment
and cutbacks contradict the
belief Youth Aliyah tries to instill
in the teenagers that they can
succeed against odds.

the goal for mid-Febrary, the rate

Never let it be said that the Jewish commi

enough to make headlines, you're right.
Because Glasgow even has a weekly newspap
which records and celebrates the various
marriages, births and bar mitzvahs!
Reading this good news is apt to bring moi
than just a smile to one's lips. Quite
often it brings the taste of fine scotch
whisky to one's lips, too. In America,
such news is often greeted with J&B

skillful blending perfected over the

Behind the headlines: Labor, Likud marriage showing signs of strain
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The honeymoon may be
over between Labor and
Likud. Strains are begin-
ning to show between the
ideologically opposed part-
ners who put together a na-
tional unity government
little more than two months
ago as the only way to
tackle Israel's worst econ-
omic crisis and to extricate
the Israel Defense Force
from the morass of Leb-
anon.
Many observers had pre-
dicted that this marriage of
convenience, a consequence
of the indecisive results of
the July 23 Knesset elec-
tions, would be short-lived.,
Relations between the part-
ners reached a new low.
Deputy Premier and For-
eign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir told a meeting of
the Herat executive com-
mittee that "When we
formed the national unity
government, we knew who
our partners were, and up
to now we have not been
favorably surprised."
Minister of Trade and
Industry Ariel Sharon, the
hardline former defense
minister who took a dim
view of the unity coalition
from the start, let loose a
blast at Premier Shimon
Peres from New York where
Sharon is pursuing his $50
million libel suit against
Time magazine. He accused
the Labor Party leader of
having done "much harm
to Israel's image" by des-
cribing the economy to be
"in worse shape than it
really is."
The most important
and possibly the only signi-
ficant achievement of the
unity government to date
has been a wage-price-
tax freeze package of three
months' duration which, it
is hoped, will curb the high-
est inflation rate in Israel's
history. Minister of Science
and Development Gideon
Patt, a key Likud Cabinet
member, predicted that the
freeze would end in an
"economic catastrophe."
Ordination for women reaffirmed at national convention
"When I am asked who gave
me the authority to make women
rabbis, my answer is 'the
Torah,' Dr. Gerson Cohen,
Chancellor of The Jewish
Theological Seminary of
America, told the 2,000 delegates
at the Biennial National Con-
vention of the Women's League
for Conservative Judaism.
Dr. Cohen said he based his
answer on the scholar Saadia,
who taught that in every age, the
Sanhedrin or its equivalent
assumes the role of Moses and
Aaron, and keeps the Torah alive
with blessings and rituals. While
the Torah did not specifically
discuss rabbis, "male, female, or
neuter, it recognized the role of
teacher, Dr. Cohen said.
"The Torah knew only such
titles as Priests, Prophets, Kings.
Judges. The very term 'Rabbi' as
a teacher of scripture is post-
biblical and grows out of the
experience of the Diaspora after
the destruction of the Temple.
Thus I get the authority to or-
dain women from the same place
I get the authority to ordain
men," Dr. Cohen said. "That
authority of the Torah must
continue, and if I can help it, the
game has just begun."
Dr. Cohen made his remarks
during his teaching session at the
Women's League Convention.
His theme was "History as the
Source of Observance." "History
is not only a catalogue of events.
It is the reasoned explanation of
why we are a people and why we
behave the way we do," he said.
Dr. Simon Greenberg, oc-
togenarian scholar and Vice
Chancellor of the Seminary,
commented on the ordination of
women as he accepted the
prestigious Mathilde Schechter
award from Selma Weintraub,
National President of Women's
League. "A discussion on the
level and of the kind that took
place within our Movement most
recently on the subject on the
ordination of women could not
have taken place within the walls
of any other Jewish school of
learning in the past, nor of
today," he said. "Though I am as
sure as any human being can be
of anything, that the decision to
ordain women was from every
point of view the right thing to
do, no one can with surety foretell
what the ultimate consequences
of that decision will be.
"But one thing we can be sure
of. We have established a historic
fact of the utmost importance for
which future generations will be
greateful. Jewish religiouis
movement, soul searching dif-
ferences of opinion were ex-
pressed without burning any
books, without expelling or
ostracizing anyone, and without
even having a mean, insulting or
harsh word spoken.
"No matter what happens in
the future, a priceless precedent
has been set," Dr. Greenberg
said. "A rabbinical school famed
for its scholarship and its
commitment to the observance of
mitzvot has, after long and
profound deliberation, decided to
ordain women to the rabbinate
without lowering either its
scholarly standards or standards
of observance.
For the first time this Sep-
tember, the Jewish Theological
Seminar accepted women as
candidates for ordination.
Women's League passed a
resolution four years ago
recommending that such a step
be taken.
AJCongress report says Egypt,
Jordan will try to set up
PLO-led Palestine State
A report by the American
Jewish Congress on Egyptian-
Israeli relations predicts that in
the wake of the U.S. elections.
Egypt and Jordan will embark on
a course that is directly contrary
to that espoused by the late
Egyptian President Anwar Sadat
by launching a major campaign
to reconvene a United Nations-
sponsored Geneva Conference
with full Soviet participation.
The ultimate purpose of the
conference, says the report,
would be to press for the
establishment of a PLO-led
Palestinian state on the West
Bank.
The AJCongress report
suggests that such a move is part
of a deliberate long-term Egyp-
tian policy designed to return
Egypt to the Arab fold at the ex-
pense of its relations with Israel.
Egyptian participation with
Jordan in a propaganda effort to
press for a PLO-led state will
come in the form of a move to
reconvene a Geneva conference
with Soviet participation a
plan strongly opposed by the late
Anwar Sadat at the time he made
his famous trip to Jerusalem that
set the stage for an Egypt-Israel
peace treaty.
The AJCongress report says
that a Geneva conference will
focus on a plan passed at a 1982
Arab sumnit conference in Fez,
Morocco which called for the
establishment of a PLOled state
but did not even imply Arab
recognition of Israel. Thus, the
report declares, a Geneva confer-
ence would turn out to be a
"propaganda campaign" rather
than "a genuine effort to promote
peace through direct negotiations
with Israel for Palestinian auto-
nomy on the basis of the Camp
David accords."
Peres, Who has been try-
ing to avoid confrontation,
responded sharply this
time. He noted that the
"economic catastrophe"
was what the unity govern-
ment inherited from its
Likud predecessor.
But Shamir, the Likud
leader who will replace
Peres as Prime Minister at
the half-way mark of the
unity government's four
year term should it sur-
vive that long is clearly
unhappy with his Laborite
partners. He told a group of
Herut activists recently
that Likud was staying in
the unity government but
"grinding its teeth."
Shamir apparently be-
lieves Labor is too soft on
the political front in dealing
with Israel's neighbors. He
accused Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin of being too
anxious to pull out of Leba-
non and giving little im-
portance to "formalities."
He objected to Peres'
publicly-stated desire to
improve the living stand-
ards of Arabs on the West
Bank and Gaza Strip. He is
rankled by Peres' repeated
declarations of the need to
open a dialogue with
Jordan and recent attempts
to thaw relations with
Egypt.
Shamir, as a member of
former Premier Menachem
Begin's government, op-
posed the Camp David
agreements and the 1979
peace treaty with Egypt.
He is now critical of the
government'8 attempts to
reopen negotiations with
Egypt over the Taba border
dispute. Cairo, after all, has
not returned its ambas-
sador to Tel Aviv since he
was recalled in 1982 during
the Lebanon war.
Shamir is especially in-
censed by a proposal by
former Foreign Minister
Abba Eban, now chairman
of the Knesset's Foreign
Affairs and Security Com-
mittee, to deploy United
Nations forces in Taba until
Situation of Ethiopian
Jews worsening
NEW YORK (JTA) An
urgent appeal was issued for
Israel and the United States
government to step up relief and
rescue efforts for the Falaahas,
Ethiopia's Jewish community'

due to the devastating drought
that is sweeping North Africa.

history of the site. Traces were
discovered of an enormous fire
which destroyed the town
towards the end of the 13th
century BCE, the period of the
debris to a depth of 1.5 meters In
that level, the archaeologists
found several Canaanite pottery
vessels, as well as imported
Mycenaean pottery testifying to
the date of the destruction.
Three levels were uncovered
dating from the 12th and 11th
centuries BCE (the period of the
Judges.) The findings from that
era indicate a period of tranquil-
ly and continuous development,
luting until the beginning of the
loth century.
Ben Qurion U. reopens
TEL AVIV (JTA) Ben
C.unon University of the Negev
in Beersheba opened its doors for
the start of the academic year
following the approval by the
university's executive committee
of balanced budget based on
guidelines of the Planning and
Grants Committee of the govern-
ment's Council for Higher
Education.
All universities in Israel, apart
from the Technion in Haifa
delayed the opening of their'
academic veer because of budget-
ary problems. But the others
opened after a week's delay, leav-
ing only the Beersheba Institute
still closed due to the lack of
funds caused by cutbacks in
government fundings to Israeli
universities.
Shlomo Gazit, president of Ben
Gurion University, withdrew his
earlier letter of resignation,
telling the executive committee
that his decision had been
greatly influenced by the mes-
sages of support from public
figures in Israel and abroad and
from the university's academic
and administrative staff."

...... .I., -i. ..^- -i
Jewish Community urged to acknowledge wife abuse
NEW YORK (JTA) A
well-known rabbi recently an-
nounced from the pulpit that all
were welcome in his congregation
- "except wife-beaters." A
survey among New York rabbis
found that while nearly all denied
first-hand knowledge of Jewish
domestic violence, and some even
claimed it never happens, many
agreed that shelters for its
victims should be established.
One such shelter has already
housed nearly 400 women, many
of them Jewish, and receives 160
to 200 calls for help a month. Two
recent studies in Los Angeles
identified several cases of spousal
abuse among Jews, and two
major conferences on the subject
have been held in as many years
in the New York area alone.
THE LATEST of the two con-
ferences was last week. It was co-
sponsored by the American
Jewish Committee'8 New York
chapter, the National Federation
of Temple Sisterhoods District 3,
the Women's League for Con-
servative Judaism, and the
women's branch of the Orthodox
Union, and it was attended by
sisterhood leaders from the three
branches of Judaism, according
to Betty Reiser, conference
coordinator and assistant
director of the AJCommittees
New York chapter.
The objectives of the confer-
ence were to determine the
severity of the problem among
American Jews and to form a
"national network for change."
All the indications at the con-
ference were that one of the most
persistent myths that Jewish
men don't beat their wives is
being exploded. Reliable statist-
ics are hard to come by, but social
service agencies under both
Jewish and nonsectarian auspices
are increasingly reporting that
Jews are following the lead of the
general society.
THE LEAD is clear; approx-
imately 10 million to 15 million
cases of wife abuse are recorded
annually in the United States.
Many more cases go unraported.
Domestic violence figures aa a
cause in about 00 percent of
divorce cases, and the Victim
Services Agency in New York
City estimates that almost half of
all women will experience
violence from a spouse or partner
at some point in their lives.
All the speakers at last week's
conference agreed that wife abuse
has always existed among
Jews as well as non-Jews. It is
not the problem but the recogni-
tion that is growing. Jewish
battering may be more "insi-
dious" than other pathologic
behaviors among Jews, "because
it has been so well-hidden'' stated
keynote speaker Barbara Harris,
director of Transition Center.
Sponsored by the Associated
YM-YWHAs of Greater New
York, Transition is the only city-
funded shelter in New York City
for abused women and their
children offering kosher facilities.
MOREOVER. Harris said,
there are reasons that abused
Jewish women may be at a
greater disadvantage than their
no n-Jewish counterparts. One is
the historic reluctance of Jews to
turn to police or civil courts to
adjudicate their disputes. When
Jewish women do file suits, they
are often met with such com-
ments as: "What's a nice Jewish
woman like you doing in court?"
Because of the sacrosanct posi-
tion of the family within Juda-
ism, Jewish women have been
inculcated with the belief that
they should sacrifice everything
for their families.
"Battered women may go
home to their mothers and be told
that they were beaten by the
fathers and 'survived,' said
Harris. "Or they may be told that
they made their bed and must lie
in it that the family must be
preserved at all coats. An offer of
help is the least likely response.''
The myth that Jews don't beat

their wives had led to widespread
denial even when the facts are
glaringly different. All battered
women suffer from society's ten-
dency to blame the victim, either
for allegedly provoking the at-
tack or for not walking away
from it.
BUT JEWISH women may
experience this to an even greater
degree. Since it is assumed that
wife abuse is rare or even non-
existent among Jews, any woman
who gets beaten is seen as
deserving it, speakers at the Con-
ference pointed out.
The centrality of the family
and the denial syndrome also
play a crucial role in what
speakers considered the inad-
equate response of most rabbis.
Previous reports had indicated
that it is rare for a rabbi to have
the opportunity to intervene be-
cause the battered woman is too
ashamed to turn to him or her.
But according to Rachel Klein,
caseworker at Transition Center,
many of the women at the shelter
had approached their rabbis for
help and been rebuffed. "They
were told, 'it's not so bad,' and
advised to go home and preserve
shalom bayit (domestic peace),"
she said.
" Since the batterer commonly
isolates his wife, but he himself
remains visible and even active in
the community, the rabbi will
tend to believe his story, and see
the woman as either hysterical or
as a nebichel the husband has to
put up with."
RABBI Gerald Skolnick,
spiritual leader of the Forest
Hills Jewish Center in New York
City, explained that rabbis are
particularly prone to the interna-
lization of Jewish "self-serving
myths" and to subsequent
denial. "After all,"he said "the
job of the rabbi is to perpetuate
myths, to teach Jewish special-
ness."
Though effective intervention
may mean nothing more than
referral of the woman to an ap-
propriate social service agency,
the insufficient training most
rabbis receive in counselling and
the resulting ingorance about
support systems in their
com munities further hampers
their ability to help even in this
limited way, it was observed.
Another myth that needs
exploding, commented Harris, is
that wife abuse occurs only

among the poor or uneducated.
Domestic violence among Jaws
cuts across social and economic
lines. All the woman at Transi-
tion have been wives of profes-
sionals, and none required fi-
nancial help. Wife abuse is also
an across-the-board religious
phenomenon: similar experiences
are reported among Orthodox,
Conservative, and Reform
families, and batterers and their

desire to change her relationship

she had not established a loving

hard to learn more effective

of the separation and then

not only help her family together,
but, aa time went on, she could
also begin to provide herself with

previously thought only a man
could give her.
Mrs. J feels much better about
her life. She has continued in
therapy to work on developing a
better relationship with her
parents. She has begun a new
relationship with a man and she
is delighted to find that she can
be an equal, valuable member of a

These incidents must occur
quite frequently. Even when our
own grandparents ask us to
speak louder, to help carry in
packages while we watch General
Hospital, or walk beside them, we
respond with annoyance.
What we don't remember are
the times they babysat us as
infanta. We disregard all the toys
they bought to keep us happy
and spoiled us during holidays.
Most importantly, we forget how
lonely they are especially
living alone when their spouse
has died, their children moved
away or when their friends have
passed away. On top of their
loneliness, we make elderly
people feel even more lonely when
we treat them with a condescend-
ing, impatient and sometimes
indifferent attitude.
We see our parents brushing
off calls from their parents as
they rush to drive car pools and
complete their occupational
duties. We, expecting phone
calls, doing homework, running
in and out of the house, also
hastily brush off the calls of our
grandparents aa unimportant.
It is important to make them
feel appreciated by giving them
time out of our busy schedules for
all the hour* they have given us.
We should respect people for
what they have completed in
their lifetimes and for their
wisdom and experience.
What we all fail to realise is our
parents, our teachers, our doctors
and even you, the person reading
this column, will someday be that
old person on the street, on the
phone or in the drug store.
RETOLD AJf^HTJArH> BY
WARWICK HUTTON
Friday, November 30,1984 / The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale Page 11
A glorious retelling of the story of Jonah
Jonah and the Great Fish. Retold
and illustrated by Warwick
Hutton. Atheneum. 1994. 32 pp.
Ages 4 to 9 $12.95cloth.
Bevfawed by Sue Barandk
A good story one that
m^infain the reader's attention
from the first syllable to the very
last word usually is marked by
a brief introduction, an ab-
sorbing, constantly moving
middle, and a succinct and
satisfying ending. Jonah and the
Great Fish, an adaptation of the
story of the Biblical prophet,
retold by British author-illus-
trator Hutton, succeeds com-
pletely in meeting these criteria.
The text is economical in its
use of words, simple and conver-
sational in tone. It is easy to
imagine that the author is sitting
next to you whispering in your
ear the exploits of Jonah, a
troubled man fleeing from the
commands of God. With the
possible exception of the phrase
concerning the "drawing of lots,"
the book is easy to comprehend
by most children in the early
elementary grades.
Glorious watercolor paintings
enhance the text beautifully. The
mysterious depths of blues and
blacks, the gentler shades of lilac,
pink, and turquoise suffuse and
intertwine the words in a
wsterworld of art. The
illustrations fit the text as a
smooth kid leather glove fits the
wearer's hand.
Hutton is certainly not the
first to put his hand to adapting
Jonah's adventures for the
picture book reader. He may,
however, be the most successful.
Beverly Brodsky's Jonah
(Lippincott, 1977) is beautifully
and lavishly adorned with im-
pressionistic paintings from her
able brush, but the text does not
mesh as well with her illus-
trations. She concentrates her
telling more on the wicked people
of Niveneh than on the
treacherous journey of Jonah.
Clyde Bulla's Jonah and the
Great Fish why do they ever
allow books to have the same
exact title? (Crowell, 1970) is
satisfactory, but is just too
wordy and minutely detailed for
the young reader.
The concepts of the Jonah
story the sinning and the
asking for forgiveness, the false
pride, the need for humility and
sincere prayer provide great meat
for discussions between parent
and child, teacher and class,
librarian and patrons, storyteller
and audience. Yom Kippur, our
Day of Atonement, is an ex-
-.
tremely apt time to introduce this
fine book to our eager listeners.
Sue Barancik, librarian of
Temple Adath B'nai Israel,
Evansville, Indiana, served as
Book Award Chairman for the

1992-94. She also travels around
the Midwest as a storyteller,
telling tales to audiences ranging
fro mnursery school to nuring
