It's UJA Super Sunday Time
Jean Shapiro

Tell your neighbors, tell your friends, phones
throughout North Broward will be ringing this Sunday,
Jan. 23. from nine in the morning to nine at night.
Hundreds of volunteers, assisting the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale, will be reaching
out to thousands of Jewish families mostly new-
comers to the sundrenched communities of North
Broward and to additional others to answer the call
to life.
It's UJA Super Sunday Phonathon time. This year,
the second consecutive year that Temple Beth Torah-
Tamarac Jewish Center has made its facilities available
to the Federation, calls will continue to be made
from the Temple's auditorium.
Additional calls will be made from the Federation's
8360 W. Oakland Park Blvd. and from Federation's
satellite office at Gait Ocean Mile.
Jean Shapiro, Federation president, and Ethel Wald-
man. general chairman of the Federation's 1963 UJA-
Special Israel Fund Campaign, expressed the Federa-
tion's deep aprpeciatipn to Sol Schulman, Temple Beth
Torah president, and the congregation's board and
volunteers, for their enthusiastic cooperation in making
the Temple headquarters for UJA Super Sunday
Alfred Golden and Israel Resnikoff, co-chairing UJA
Super Sunday, report more than 600 volunteers have
offered to make calls from the 48 telephones that have
been installed at Temple Beth Torah. They report that
additional volunteers are needed for some phones dur-
ing the 6 to 9 p.m. calling hours this Sunday. Persons
interested in joining the effort to secure more pledges
for of Israel and the Federation's work
throughout North Broward are urged to call the
Federation's Super Sunday coordinator, Mark Silver-
man, at the Federation office 748-8200.
This year's UJA Super Sunday campaign is the
greatest, all-out effort undertaken by the Federation.
More than 20,000 Jewish families many of them new
residents and a number of them not yet enrolled as con-
tributing to the support of Israel are expected to be
called during the week with calls continuing Monday
evening from Temple Beth Torah. and Tuesday and
Wednesday evenings from the Federation office.
Additional support for the volunteers has been of-
fered by the B'nai B'rith Youth Organization of North
Broward. BBYO Advisor Debbie Rothfeld will have
volunteers from the various BBG (B'nai B'rith Girls)
and AZA (Aleph Zadek Aleph) chapters during Super
Sunday working to correct wrong numbers, look up new
numbers, check addresses and spellings.
Volunteer telephone callers are being briefed on the
needs for support of Israel and the increasing needs for
the various services provided by Federation for the
elderly, for the youth, for Jews in nursing homes, hos-
pitals and elsewhere, before making their calls.
In expressing its appreciation to Beth Torah Presi-
dent Sol Schulman for the use of the auditorium for the
second year for UJA Super Sunday. Federation com-
mended the Temple's officers, vice presidents David
KranU. Barney Rosenthal and Seymour Wildman;
secretaries Sam Saposnick, Ruth Mantel! and Molhe
Kanter; Treasurer Frieda Berkowitz, and the other
volunteers who'U be manning the refreshment tables
with goodies for the telephone calling volunteers.
Federation's UJA Campaign Moves Mo High Gear
Community fund-raisers
around North Broward are
moving into high gear, spurred
by the fact that the 1983 United
Jewish Appeal-Special Israel
Fund campaign is half-way
toward its objective.
The Campaign Cabinet of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale, headed for the
second consecutive year by Ethel
Waldman, reported more than $2
million has already been pledged
in various communities and
condominium communities where
fund-raisers have been held.
Scores of committees are
completing plans for meetings to
be held in the next few weeks. All
of them have high hopes of in-
creasing commitments over last
year's contributions. They have
been informed of the needs of the
people in Israel in their search for
a comprehensive peace, and the
increased cost of local services on
the social and humanitarian
levels since the Reagan Adminis-
tration has been reducing aid to
local communities.

Habib Goes Back to Israel
Efforts to end the stalemate in Israel-Lebanon discussions on
normalizing relations and getting the Syrian and PLO forces out of
Lebanon took on new meaning last week when President Reagan
dispatched Philip Habib to the Middle East once again.
Habib is hopeful that his talks with Prime Minister Menachem
Begin will help in resolving that situation since Begin is scheduled to
be meeting with Reagan sometime next month.
While the negotiations continue with meetings of the delegations in
Lebanon and in Kiryat Shemona. PLO leader Yasser Arafat is
muddying the waters again.
Following meetings with Jordan's King Hussein, which so far have
brought forth no hopeful signs of any breakthrough on the impasse for
a Middle East peace, Arafat and a delegation from PLO moved on to

American Aid To Israel,
The Bargain Behind The Bluster
In a recent study. Rudy Boschwitz of Minnesota has put the
issue of American aid to Israel in perspective How much is Is-
rael really costing America? Is it worth it? Is Israel a burden or a
bargain? Senator Boschwitz has unscrambled the statistics and
penetrated the bureaucratic jargon to reveal the following:
The United States lays out in "foreign aid" to Israel a sum
which amounts to about 4 percent of what the United States
lays out to Great Britain. France. Italy, and West Germany.
This year, when Israel will get about $3 billion. NATO countries
will get $50 to $80 billion but you never hear about it. This is
became in the wonderful world of bureacracy The money sent to
Israel is called "foreign aid." It is quietly stored awsy in the
defense budget.
A few more facts: Israel pays back one-half of che American
aid it gets, while NATO pays back nothing. This year, for exam-
ple. Israel will be paying out $900 million in accumulated princi-
ple and interest on previous .American loans, which means that
the actual cash outlay to Israel from America this year will not
be $3 billion, but about $2 billion. Furthermore, of that $2 bil-
lion, all of its defense-related portion will be spent in the United
States, thereby creating jobs not lor Israelis but for Amencant
By contrast, the money which the United State* spends on
NATO creates jobs for both American soldiers and for one mil-
lion Europeans.
What is America getting for the money it sends to Israel? Il
gets the latest intelligence information on the latest, most ad-
vance Soviet weaponry. Israel, not NATO, is supplying the
United States with this information. Israel, not NATO, is keep-
ing the Soviet Union out of the Middle East as convincingly
demonstrated last June by the Israel Air Force's utter rout of
Soviet-armed Syrian attempts to overtake Lebanon. And Israel
is doing this with just a few percentage points of the aid which
America ships overseas.
What is more. Israel is no drain on American trade. While
Japan has an $16 to $20 billion positive trade balance with the
United States. Israel has a consistently negative trade balance
with the U.S. This means that the money which America ships
to Israel for economic assistance eventually finds its way back
to America in the form of Israeli imports of American goods.
You hear a lot about Israel having received around $20 billion
in aid from America in the last 10 years. The figure is accurate
What you do not hear is that NATO will receive about six tinies
that amount for the next 119631 fiscal year alone. And NATO
does not pay back, while Israel pays back about 50 percent of
the aid it receives
Furthermore. Israel is basically paying its own way. using
American aid simply to supplement what is the highest per
capita defense budget in the world, while Japan. Italy. France,
and West Germany consistently underspend America not onlv
m absolute terms but also in the degree of GNP devoted to de-
fense NATO countries are asking America to do a job which
NATO should be doing a lot more of itself, while Israel is simplv
asking for supplementary help.
Consider this, too: Israel receives only American money.
while NATO receives American money and men. When Israel
rights Soviet proxies isuch as Syria) in the Middle East, it is Is-
raeli soldiers who die. while for NATO it is American soldiers
who defend Europe
Take it all around. American aid to Israel is a bargain: Israel
doean t take much: what it does take it either spends in America
or pays back to America in trade: and in return for its aid to Is-
rael. America gets an ally which not only talks but acts to keen
the Soviets out of the Middle East, and also keeps dencracy
alive in the Middle East. Take k all around. American aid to Is-
rael is a bargain.

Bonn Asked To Nullify Acquittals
stice Minister Moshe Nissim
speaking before the Knesset, has
called on West Germany to nulii
fy the acquital of two Nazi wai
criminals and to have the two
placed on trial again.
Wilheun Westerheide and
Yohanna Zelle. who were tried in
Dortmund on charges of partici-
pation in the murder of 9.000
Jews in the Vladimir ghetto, wen
recently acquitted. Nissim spoke
in reply to an urgent motion to
the agenda by an Alignment
Member of the Knesset. Prof
Shevah Weiss.
Weiss said the fight against
the "deformation of mankind, as
it was expressed in Nazi crimes
during the Holocaust." had to be
fought constantly. He said "it is
not merely a matter of revenge,
although that too is legitimate in
this context."
Benjamin Meed, president of the American Gather-
ing of Jewish Holocaust Survivors, is coming to Fort
Lauderdale Sunday. Jan. 23. to address survivors at a
special meeting at Temple Beth Israel in Sunrise about
the April 11-14 first national get-together of survivors
to be held in Washington. D.C.
Ludwik Brodzki. founding president of the Jewish

tended to all known holocaust survivors in North

vivors Club of Century Village, heade dyb Leon Kittay.
Gesture Of Agony
Wiesel Turns on Jacobo Timerman
Eli Wiesel. probably the
world's most widely-read
Jewish novelist, essayist
and commentator, has had
some disquieting experien-
ces in recent months.
In an interview on Miami
Beach. Wiesel revealed that he
had been in Israel when the inva-
sion of Lebanon occurred. While
he had some reservations about
the implications of the war.
Wiesel has been scandalized by
some of the reactions to it.
notably that of Jacobo Timer-
man, the former editor of a news-
paper in Buenos Aires who was
arrested by the Argentine
authorities and who is now living
in Israel
"I WAS one of those people
who went to Argentina to plead
with the authorities there to re-
lease Timerman." Wiesel said.
It was because of the interven-
tion of Israel and its offer to
accept Timerman that he was
finally able to leave his jail cell."
Wiesel feels that Timerman s
new book on Israel. "The Long-
est War. Israel in Lebanon"
(Knopf), is unsavory. It is in-
tended as an expose of Israel's
"unwarranted" invasion of Leb-
anon published in advance of
the findings of the judicial com-
mission of inquiry.
His recent appearances on
American television notably
the CBS 60 Minutes" program,
where his unrelenting criticism of
Israel prompted Mike Wallace to
ask. "But is there nothing posi-
tive about Israel?" brought
more of the unsavory in him. He
displays both a lack of grateful-
ness and a certain "shallowness"
in his thinking.
Elie Wiesel
If Wiesel has had second
thoughts about Timerman. he
has gone through a similar pro-
cess with regard to his own recent
response to the Beirut massacres.
In the wake of the Shatila and
Sabra murders. Wiesel had rush-
ed into print with some strong
articles about the moral lapses of
certain Jews.
"I WENT so far as to suggest
that this calamitous event meant
that we had failed as a people,
that there was something wrong
with our educational system I
said that the time had come for a
Heshbon Ha-nefesh. a reckoning
with our souls. I could not under-
stand how such a monstrous
thing had transpired ."
WIESEL IS exercised not only
by Timerman s statements about
the "wickedness" of Israel but
about his assertions of longtime
Zionist and Jewish commitment
That's not the impression I got
when I was in Argentina trying
to secure Timerman s release '
Wiesel stated.
"Members of the Jewish com
munity there asked me why I was
wasting my time on a person who
had never displayed any Jewish
"Wlien Timerman occupied his
position as editor of one of
Buenos Aires' best newspapers,
he had no time for the Jewish
people or for Israel that's what
I was told by Argentinian Jews."
(Timerman does say in his book
Prisoner Without a Name. Ceil
Without a Number," that he
*"** about Israel in his paper
he does not provide details about
the extent of his coverage.)
When the reaction of the
worlds press began to filter
through Wiesel's consciousness,
he soon realized that he had been
precipitous in his reaction. The
orgy of condemnation which was
visited upon Israel was too much
for Wiesel. "The condemnation
was not inspired by a sincere
search for truth but by a hidden
agenda, to wipe clean the Holey
caust slate. The world seemed to
be saying to us: Now that you
too have been involved in human
brutality, however indirect we
can now close the chapter on the
Holocaust. The relish that ac-
companied the world condemna
tn of Israel was transparent."
Israel during the war. he is not
prepared to offer analysis of the
P0'*"^ military aspects of the
conflict. "I am not a political
person and am therefore unable
to comment on whether the
invas^n justifiable or not
When it comes to matters of
security. I do not presume to tell
tne people on the scene what u
appropriate or not"
Wiesel was. however, ready to
make some observatioos on the
war as he witnessed it from his |
"The first inkling I had that I
something was wrong was when I
heard a radio announcer say:
Katavenu me Beirut moser. lour
correspondent from Beirut re-
ports ."). The media coverage
of the fighting was unprecedent
ed. Hour after hour. Israeli TV
crews filled the screens not only
with shots of the fighting bat
with programs featuring debatei I
among soldiers about the moral-
ity of the war ail this occurring I
while the fighting was going on!
"My general impression is that J
this was a war. the first one in Is-
rael. that was waged without i j
general consensus. I felt a cor
porate sense of sadness. The peo
pie were split, and you could feel
it clearly."

the bombing of Beirut, organized
missions' and tours went to the
city to view the spectacle. Here
was a city in the process of being

A Midrash from Exodus came
to Wiesel's mind to emphasize
the point: When the Egyptians
are drowning in the Sea. and yon
sing songs of rejoicing."
WIESEL'S moral position is a
simple one. "I do believe in the
double standard when it comes to
Israel. I am not embarrassed by
it. I believe that the State of Is-
rael should be better than other
states. What is Israel's purpose if
it is only to become another
Levantine entity?"
That is the message Wiesel
communicates to the students at
Yale (where he recently received j

peoples he lectures to annually.

An ambitious new family pro-
gram. Project Elef, designed to
bring up to 1,000 North Ameri-
can families to Israel this coming
summer, has been announced by
Allan Milstein, director of the Is-
rael Aliyah Center, Miami.
According to Milstein, "Pro-
ject Elef has been created to give
American families a real taste of
life in Israel." Families will reside
in absorption centers, guest
houses on kibbutzim and
moshavim, or in special accom-
modations in settlement towns
during their one-month stay.
Each family will select from a
choice of work activities and pro-
grams, including: experiencing
kibbutz living, harvesting fruit
on a moshav, living on a settle-
ment in Judea and Samaria,
special touring program, and an
educational program in Jewish
history and Torah study.
Another unique aspect of Pro-
ject Elef, Milstein said, is that
each visiting family will be guid-
ed through the program by a host
family in Israel, enabling partici-
pants to be integrated into Israeli
life as much as possible during
their month in Israel. Families
will shop where the Israelis shop,
work with them share in their
pastimes, and learn at their
schools. In this way, "American
families will really experience
what living, working and study-
ing in Israel is like," Milstein
said. Both religious and non-
religious programs are offered.
Project Elef, sponsored in Is-
rael by the Jewish Agency's
Immigration and Absorption De-
partment, is part of department
head Raphael Kotlowitz's efforts
to give Diaspora Jews a more in-
timate knowledge of life in Israel

'Mini-Mission' to JCC Campus Fruitful
We some three dozen
curious members of the Women's
Division board of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale went on a "mini-
mission" to the Jewish Com-
munity Center of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, a beneficiary agency
of the funds contributed to the
Federation's United Jewish Ap-
peal campaign.
We showed up at 10 in the
morning of our mission. What a
trip we took that day: from
laughter to tears and back again,
and finally well, let me just tell
you some highlights.
The Community Center Perl-
man campus at 6501 W. Sunrise
Blvd.. Plantation, covers 10 busy
acres, so after a brief "coffee and
..." to fortify the inner woman,
we took a brisk walk to the play-
ground and cluster of classrooms
reserved for junior citizens aged
18 months to pre-kindergarten.
We went in and out of classrooms
observing the activities of 80 tod-
dlers who were obviously where
they wanted to be. doing what
they enjoyed doing, unaware of
the fact that their adept young
teachers were holding their at-
tention by using "play" as their
teaching tool. For the large per-
centage of these youngsters who
are from either single-parent or
double-employment homes, the
Center provides supervised
activity, when needed, from 8
a.m. to 6 p.m. dairy.
Association for Deaf
We stopped in at the office of
the Jewish Community Center's
national award-winning Associa-
tion for the Deaf. This group of
over 100 members has its own
Board, makes its own plans for
events, including a just-com-
pleted trip to Israel, accompanied
by the Center's staff member act-
ing as liaison and interpreter.
They are proud of their TTY tele-
phone for the deaf. (I am feeling
proud that we worked to help
fund the Center so there was a
beginning place for this happy
and independent group.)
Kosher Nutrition
I m so glad that we reached the
Hot Lunch program half an hour
before lunch. Here were 73 per-
sons enjoying, thanks to the
Women's League for Israel, a
song fest led by Yiddish enter-
tainers as well as a good hot
meal. Federation has another
Kosher Nutrition Center for the
elderly in Lauderdale Lakes.
The Gathering, a daily pro-
gram for our lesi robust elderly,
was our next stop. The hot lunch
we had shared was filling, so I

calisthenic" group before admir-
ing the charming and unusual
handicrafts they make. These
seniors, up to % years of age
right now, have "music makers."
current events, sociability and
activity. Because they do need
help and supervision, our Center
makes it possible for them to en-
joy a normal (non-nursing home)
Hebrew Day School
We watched some of the He-
brew Day School (which has its
own building on the campus)
youngsters using our unique, new
Kopelowitz playground, before
our busy morning came to a
close. We knew we had seen only
a fraction of what goes on. We
didn't disturb the Hadassah
meeting in Soref Hall or the
Senior Adult activities. After
school, pre-teens and teens would
meet: after dinner, Hebrew High
School and other adult cultural,
educational and recreational
groups. We had seen a little

Maxwell House* Coffee
Is After Shopping Relaxation.
Shopping for a "good buy" has be-
come one of America's favorite pas-
times. It's always fun to find new
things, see the new fashions and
perhaps pick up something new for
the house or family.
Another favorite pastime is to come
home from shopping, kick off the
shoes and relax with a good cup of
coffee. Maxwell House* Coffee. The
full-pleasant aroma and great-
tasting, satisfying flavor is
the perfect ending
to a busy shop-
ping day. Espe-
cially when
relaxing with

a close friend. The good talk. The
good feelings. The warmth are some
of the things that go along with
Maxwell House? Perhaps that's why-
many Jewish housewives don't shop'
for Maxwell House* They simply
buy it. It's the "smart buy" as any
balabusta knows!
So, no matter what your prefer-
enceinstant or ground when
you pour Maxwell House? you pour
relaxation. At its best.. consis-
tently cup after cup after cup.

Runaway Triggers Family Counseling
Mrs. S., a Jewish woman in her
late forties, frantically called the
Jewish Family Service of
Broward County. Between tears,
Mrs. S. related her painful story.
Yesterday morning her 17 year-
old son Roger ran away from
home. At first, she and her
husband were certain Roger
would return by nightfall. He had
run awav on two previous oc-
casions, only to return by
evening. This time, however,
Roger was gone over-night, and
his parents had no knowledge of
his whereabouts.
After hearing their tale, the
counselor suggested that the
family contact Roger's friends to
see if they knew where he was. He
also suggested that they contact
their local police department and
file a missing person's report and
encouraged the family to seek
counseling now. This would
enable them to understand and
cope with the situation and help
Roger's behavior. After conferr-
ing with her husband, Mr. and
Mrs. S. made an appointment for
the following day.
Later that day, Mr. S. again
contacted the agency to let the
counselor know that Roger had
returned. Mr. S. went on to say
that, since Roger returned, he
doubted the need to bring the
family into counseling.
The counselor first said that he
was glad Roger had been found
safe and had returned to his
family. Then he gently suggested
that the problems that had
caused Roger to run away
probably still existed. This,
combined with the fact that he I
had run away on two prior occa-
sions, suggested that a pattern
existed that could lead to greater
problems for Roger and his
family in the future. After listen-
ing to the counselor, Mr. S.
decided to keep the appointment
the following day.
Just from meeting them in the
waiting room, the counselor could
see that Mrs. S. was still upset
over the events of the weekend.
He observed that Mrs. S. seemed
detached and somewhat aloof
from his wife and son. He ex-
pected to see in Roger the typical
runaway, stereotype an angry,
hostile youth who feels that no
one understands him. As he
would note later, he was only half
right. Right now he could only
sense in Roger a resigned
After the first couple of coun-
seling sessions, a picture emerged
that helped explain why Roger
would run away from home. To
better understand his behavior, it
is important to appreciate the
family background. Roger is the
youngest child in a family which
consists of Roger, two older
brothers, and his parents. The S's
Yugoslav Jews
Protest Anti-Semitism
NEW YORK The Jewish
Community of Yu issued a protest against recent
acts "inciting open demonstra-
tions of anti-Semitism" which are
contrary to "the constitutional
and social order of Yugoslavia
and her basic political determina-
tions," it was reported here by
the World Jewish Congress.
The protest appeared as a
front-page editorial in the most
recent issue of "The Jewish Re-
view," the official organ of the
Federation of Jewish Communi-
ties in Yugoslavia, the central
representative body of Yugoslav
According to the editorial, en-
titled "Discrimination Threat,"
in the last few weeks "Jewish
citizens found themselves in a
situation of being singled out and
made the target of discriminatory
practices which could not but
disturb them and awake a feeling
of bitterness." Given as the
direct cause of this situation,
'were some aspects of reporting
on Near East developments and
excesses which occurred..."
Various articles and incidents
were cited by the editorial. A
recent article in the Belgrade
daily "Politika" stated that "the
nation which a few decades ago
was the victim of merciless exter-
mination is now diligently
busying itself with similar deeds
toward new victims." A poster at
a meeting in Belgrade on July 9
carried the slogan "Sons of
Judah we shall avenge Bei-
rut." The Jewish Community
also reports receiving anonymous
letters and threatening phone
The editorial concludes that
"such occurrences can be
guarded against and averted only
by resolute protection of what are
the common achievements of the
Yogoslav social revolution and of
the anti-fascist War of National
Liberation in which, in a relative
ly great number, Jews also par-
ticipated to defend human free-
doms, dignity and equality."

are an extremely successful and
upwardly mobile family. Mr. S. is
a successful lawyer, while his wife
is a bank executive. Roger's older
brothers, Sam and Jay, are both
beginning successful careers
one in dentistry, and the other in.
The family's values and ex-
pectations are that everyone in
the family, children included,
works hard and becomes success-
ful. Both Sam and Jay accomp-
lished these goals without much
difficulty. Having to fulfill
parental expectations and to live
up to the legacy that his two
older brothers had established
created an enormous amount of
pressure within young Roger.
This pressure, combined with a
fear of failure and a fear of losing
parental love, evoked within
Roger a need to flee a tension-
packed situation. "I doubt I can
make it, "Roger said. "Everyone
else in this family is the best. I do
okay, but I'm just not the top."
Through the counseling
process, the family was able to
understand Roger's need to
escape what he saw as an uncom-
fortable environment. With an
understanding of the family
processes, change began to occur.
Roger came to understand that
there was no connection between
parental love and his becoming
successful his parents would
love him just as much, no matter
what he acheived.
As this new knowledge and
understanding continued to be
manifested in the family, Roger's
need to escape dissipated and
eventually disappeared. One day,
about a year after counseling had
ended, Roger gave the counselor
a call. "I just wanted to touch
base with you, "Roger said. "I've
graduated and I start college in
the fall. I want to be a success
too, like my brothers, but it sure
feels good knowing that you're
loved, even if you fall on your
face once in a while. It makes it
much easier to try again. Now

ever duplicated exactly.
Entitled "CDB" and formed
out of weather-rusted steel, Mark
Benkert s compelling abstract
sculpture occupies a permanent
place in JCC's Ackerberg Sculp-
ture Garden.
Benkert says the artistic in-
spiration for "CDB" came from
two sources: "My children's
alphabet picture books and my
work with industrial metal
letters. Looking at the interplay
of the familiar curves and lines
with a new perspective gave me
the idea for the sculpture's
A "letterman" in the true
sense of the word, Benkert is one
of the fortunate few who can
combine business with the
pursuit of his goals in the art
world. He operates his own in-
dustrial metal shop called
"Sculptural Steel" which serves
the advertising trade.
Benkert has an Associate in
Art degree from Broward Com-
munity College and a B.A. in
Fine Art from Florida Atlantic U.
His professors at BCC including
Steve Elliot, La Monte Anderson
and David Pactor and Bill
Latimer of FAU, all of whom are
well-known sculptors, recognized
his talent and encouraged hum.

Wiesenthal Rejects
Canadian Invitation
By Arnold Ages
hunter Simon Wiesenthal has
refused to set foot in Canada for
the past decade because of what
he believes is the reluctance of
the Canadian government to
prosecute Nazi war criminals
living in Canada.
Wiesenthal. head of the war
crimes documentation center in
Vienna, has been invited to speak
by the Canadian Jewish Congress
and other Jewish institutions
since his brief visit to Vancouver
in 1972. But he will not enter the
country and has explained his
reasons in an interview with the
Canadian Broadcasting Corp.
and in communications with
Jewish leaders in Canada.
Wiesenthal contends that
despite information about known
Nazi war criminals living in
Canada, the government
Ottawa has refused to act. tit
decried the inertia of the govern
ment and what he called "empty
promises" by a representativec
Canada's Solicitor General tint
the Nazis would be prosecuted.
Last month, Canadian officiik|
did move against Albert Raua
an alleged Nazi executioneer wh
murdered Jews in Lithuania
presently Jives in Toronto. Afl
a hearing, a Canadian >u ordered Rauca extradited tj
West Germany where, presun
bly he will stand trial. Bn
Wiesenthal was not impressed bjl
that action.
He has pointed out that wh
was involved was an extradit
hearing, not a trial and that
impetus came from Bonn,
from Canada. Rauca s att
meanwhile is appealing
extradition order.

In the western media, Dudein
is portrayed as a puppel of Israel.
True, he is willing to negotiate
with the Jewish State and was
also willing to talk to a group of
West European public relations
experts working on behalf of the
i Israeli cause but only because
he believes that this is the best
course of action for the future of
the West Bank.
He does not endorse all the
policies of the Begin Govern-
ment, particularly with regard to
the West Bank settlements. "We
oppose the creation of any new
settlements at present which we

DUDEIN, a well-built figure
accompanied everywhere by even
better-built colleagues, is a
former minister in the Jordanian
government. He came back to
the West Bank in 1977 after
falling out with King Hussein
and found "severe negligence" in
the area. "There was a shortage
of roads, water, electricity and
medical supplies. Millions of dol-
lars were being given to mayors
who were agents of the PLO but
they passed none of it on to the

myself a couple of weeks ago one
of the modern medical centers

DUDEIN is a pragmatist, as
well as an ambitious political
leader. "The Arabs can't throw
the Jews into the sea, and the
Jews can't throw the Arabs into
the desert," he told me.
"We are telling our citizens
that there is no other choice
except negotiations between Is-
rael and the Palestinian Arabs.

hold a conference of all the village

then we will call on Israel to start

growing percentage of the
800,000 West Bank Arabs.
Dudein is bitter, not so much
about his "puppet" image in the
western media, but rather be-
cause neither the American con-
sulate in East Jerusalem nor the
consulates of Britain or France
give him or the leagues any sem-
blance of encouragement. They
refuse, in fact, to come and talk

Four Terrorists Face Trial
By Lisa Palmieri-Bilhg
The Jewish community of
Milan is requesting the status of
plaintiff in the upcoming trial of
four suspected terrorists accused
of detonating a bomb at the en-
trance to the Jewish Community
Center at Via Eupili 8 in Milan on
the night of September 29-30.
The bombing occurred just nine
days before a machinegun and
grenade attack on worshippers
outside the main synagogue in
Rome in which two lives were
Milan police arrested 14 sus-
pects in the community center
bombing. The four to go on trial
were directly responsible for the
act, according to the police. All
were identified as members of the
"Communists Organized for Pro-
letarian Liberation" (COLP), a
group linked to several extreme
leftwing organizations and
suspected of subversion.
The organizations are "Prima
Lenea," "Autonamia Operaia Or-
ganizzata," and "Nuclei Combat
tenti Communisti." They are be-
lieved to work in tandem with the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion for the purpose of creating
panic among Jews, civil chaos
and undermining faith in
Western democracy, a spokes-
man for the Rome Jewish com-
munity told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency.
Court Justice Meir Shamgar pro-
posed a compromise in connec-
tion with the efforts by Reform
rabbis to gain equal status with
the Orthodox religious establish-
Shamgar suggested that Re-
form rabbis be permitted to per-
form marriages in Israel while the
Orthodox would retain their
prerogative as registrars of all
marriages. The Orthodox have
enjoyed a government-backed
monopoly of religious functions
in Israel since the State was
formed. Marriages and other rites
performed by non-Orthodox
rabbis are invalid.
The Reform movement is
protesting this situation in a
hearing before a panel of five jus-
tices. Counsel for the State,
which backs the Orthodox rab-
binate, claimed it acts on behalf
of all Jews in the country, re-
gardless of whether they recog-
nize it. "There is no room for
various Jewish religions," he
said. The court will hear the ap-
pellants' case at its next hearing.

PARIS (JTA) Arthur
Rubinstein, one of the world's
greatest concert pianists, died at
his Geneva home at the age of 96.
His companion and friend, An-
nabel Whitestone, said, that the
maestro caught an infection. Ma.
Whitestone said Rubinstein did
not want any religious service af-
ter his death.
Rubinstein was a towering
artist, a storyteller and a philan-
thropist who never refused to
give a gala performance on behalf
of charity, Israel or a Jewish
cause. One of his last public con-
certs in the 1970s was in London
on behalf of the Organization for
Rehabilitation Through Training
At the beginning of 1976, in his
last year of public performances,
the maestro flew to Tel Aviv to
record Brahms D Minor Con-
certo with the Israel Phil-
harmonic Orchestra under the
baton of Zubin Mehta. He later
wrote that this "turned out to be
by far the most satisfying of all
my previous attempts."
Ardent Support Of Israel
Rubinstein, an ardent sup-
porter of Israel, gave frequent
concerts there appearing, as
well, with the Isreal Phil-
harmonic Orchestra from the
i early days of the Jewish State.
To encourage and support
talented young pianists, he
initiated the International Piano
Master Competition, held in Is-
rael, which bears his name.
His musical association with
Israel dates back to 1924. On a
concert tour that took him from
Egypt to Greece, he found a way
to make an unscheduled stop in
Tel Aviv-Jaffa, which he had
longed to visit. "It made me
happy to see the old soil where
my Jewish brethren, in the Dias-
pora for 2,000 years found a place
again in their homeland," he said.
Upon his arrival in Tel Aviv-
Jaffa, Rubinstein was imme-
diately recognized and pressed
into playing. There was no con-
cert hall large enough to held the
great number of people who
wanted to hear him, so one was
hastily improvised in an empty
hangar at Lod (then Lydda) air-
port. The audience of 2,000 peo-
ple was "standing-room only
literally, because there were no
chairs to be found in the hangar.
In talking about that concert
in a recent taped interview with
David Frost, the noted television
journalist, Rubinstein said that it
was "a very extraordinary con-
cert. I never forgot it." He re-
called that Tel Aviv at that time
"was just three little streets
and the desert behind it."
The maestro also told Frost in
the interview, which was
screened at the gala dinner in his
honor by the American Commit-
tee for the Weizmann Institute of
Science at the Waldorf Astoria
Hotel in New York City last
October 18, that he had been a
friend of Dr. Chaim Weizmann,
who sparked his interest in the
limitless vistas for scientific re-
search and the crucial role it
could play in a revitalized
Jewish homeland.
As the Weizmann Institute
took shape and flourished in
Rehovot, Rubinstein's support of
its research work deepended. The
Institute awarded him an honor-
ary Doctor of Philosophy degree
in 1976 in recognition of this sup-
The maestro also related that
he also knew other great Zionist
leaders, among them Max Nor-
dau and Nahum Sokolow, who
arranged one of his first concerts
in pre-state Israel. It took place
outdoors, in front of the King
David Hotel in Jerusalem. "I
knew Sokolow from childhood,"
said Rubinstein, "because he
edited a Hebrew paper in Warsaw
Hatzfirn and my father
contributed articles to that
Kper." Rubinstein carried on his
hers commitment to Israel
and was a passionate champion
of the Jewish state and a strong
supporter of its cultural life He
gave concerts there on the
average of once a year until his
retirement in 1976.
Rubinstein told Frost he never
was the kind of musician who
spent all of his time practicing
and had no time left to enjoy life.
Many young pianists, he con-
tinued, have an "incredible tech-
nique because they work it out to
the last minute sitting at the
piano practicing eight hours a
day and they have no life. .
I would rather become ... a
He confessed that there were
perhaps 50 beautiful pieces of
music he never performed public-
ly because he had been too lazy to
practice. "I never was a great
worker at the piano," he said.
"But what the public liked was
that music was in me, it sung in
me, everything I played I was
singing inside."
Even in his retirement, in his
90" s. the maestro remained active
in public life, meeting people,
helping the young and taking a
deep interest in civic affairs. In
December, 1978, he was presented
by President Carter and Jacquel-
ine Kennedy Onassis with the
Kennedy Carter's Distinguished
Keen Interest la Jewish Tradi-
Born in Lodz, Poland, in 1887,
he first studied in Warsaw and
then in Berlin. From his early
days in East Europe he main-
tained throughout his life a good
command of Yiddish and a keen
interest in Jewish traditions and
Jewish lore.
Rubinstein gave his first con-
cert in Berlin when he was 11 and
first appeared in the United
States in 1906 with the Philadel-
phia Symphony Orchestra at
Carnegie Hall. By that time, at
the age of 20, he was already a
world reputed pianist.
At the outbreak of World War
I. he volunteered for the Polish
Legion and served as a military
interpreter in London, then gave
a series of concerts for the Allied
cause and the Red Cross.
During World War II and the
Nazi occupation of Paris, where
he had had his home, Rubinstein
settled in California and became
an American citizen in 1946. He
was given the world's most pres-
tigious medals and awards but on
his 90th birthday he told an in-
terviewer. "What really pleases
me most is to play the piano."
Rep. Rosenthal Felled
By Cancer at Age 59
Reo. Benjamin Rosenthal
(D., N.Y.). the senior Jewish
member of the House Foreign
Affairs Committee, a staunch
supporter of Israel in Congress,
an opponent of the Vietnam war
and a leading consumer advocate,
died last week at the age of 59 in
Georgetown University Hospital
after a long battle with cancer.
His death reduced to 37 the
number of Jewish legislators in
the House.
Rosenthal. of Queens, who was
elected last November to his 11th
term in the House in a newly
drawn Seventh District in
Queens, had been in the forefront
of Congressional battles for
continued support to Israel, such
as increases in United States
financial and military aid to
Israel, and in seeking to prevent
Administration actions he
considered harmful to Israel.
AMONG THESE, he took part
in the unsuccessful battle to
prevent the Reagan Administra-
tion from selling AW ACS re-
connaissance planes to Saudi
Arabia in 1981 and had joined in
warnings to the Reagan Admin-
istration over reports of planned
weapons to Jordan.
Many non-Jewish Congressmen
looked to him for guidance on
issues concerning Israel.
Rosenthal was operated on for
cancer of the colon in January,
1981, and received 10 months of
chemotherapy which left him
gaunt and weak. He managed to
resume his duties in the House,
but his condition became worse
last month, and he was forced to
take the oath of office for the 98th
Congress in his hospital room.
Rosenthal had been elected by
huge majorities from the Eighth
Congressional district since he
was first elected in 1962. At one
point, in 1969, he held the House
in session all night to show his
support for demonstrators who
had come to Washington in
opposition to the Vietnam war.
At that time, he said, "One Con-
gressman with a fair amount of
chutzpah can awaken the public
