Six Jews Among The

Jews were killed by the ear-
thquake that devastated the
center of Mexico City
recently, according to Rabbi
Morton Rosenthal, director
of the Latin American Af-
fairs department of the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith. Between 3,000
and 5,000 people were killed
in the earthquake.
One of the dead was a
woman who succumbed to a
heart attack, brought on ap-
parently by the quake. The
others appear to have died
in the rubble of collapsed
buildings. Rosenthal obtain-
ed his information from
sources in Guadalajara,
Mexico's second largest ci-
ty, who were unable to sup-
ply names or ages of the
Jewish victims. The sources
told him they had telex com-
munications with Mexico Ci-
ty which, four days after the
disaster, was unreachable

Ethiopian Jewish Absorption Proceeding Smoothly
Chaim Aron, chairman
of the Jewish Agency's
immigraton and absorp-
! tion department, said
' recently that the absorp-
i tion of Ethiopian Jews is
' entering its second
1 stage, which will result
in the new immigrants
gaining their own apart-
' ments and jobs. He said
the stage would take at
least a year, probably
1 more.
"I am pleased to
report that the absorp-
tion process for Ethio-
pian Jews has been pro-
ceeding smoothly," said
I Aron, who spoke at a
rs briefing organized
the United Jewish
Appeal and Israel
AByah Center at UJA
headquarters in New
"Within six months,
700 families will com-
plete the process at ab-
sorption centers and
move on into Israeli
society, which has
shown itself ready to
welcome them." Aron
said apartments and
jobs outside absorption
centers would be sought
for more than 2,100
family heads "roughly
within the next two
years." He said that
throughout this time,
teenagers would con-
tinue to enter Youth
Aliyah villages, where
2,100 are already enroll-
ed, and others would
enter Israeli universities
where 62 Ethiopian
Jews recently enrolled.
Aron said that Ethio-
pian Jewish men are
learning diamond cut-
ting ana polishing, high-
technology and conv
puter skills -
marketable and well-
paying skills in Israel
and a far cry from life in
rural Ethiopia. He said
the Jewish agency was
committed to preparing
Ethiopian Jews for
tomorrow's jobs today
and, in conjunction with
the Ministry of Labor, to
helping them find those
jobs today.
He said the second
stage depended on the
new immigrant's
understanding of Israeli
society and ability to
have a job and an apart-
ment near that job.
Israel has a housing
shortage in the larger
cities and other employ-
ment centers. Because
of the high cost of
gasoline and other fac-
tors, Israelis live near
where they work. He
said Ethiopian Jews
want to be the ones to
choose their own apart-
ments and make other
decisions. "They have
been learning very well

Now the Promised Land
eeds more than promises*
Today, Israel it reeling from its worst
economic crisis ever.
Inflation it a staggering 200%. 100,000
Israelis are unemployed. Prices for bread, eggs
and other basic staples are up 45%.
The Israeli government is doing all it can
with tough new measures designed to get the
country back oil track. But one unfortunate
result hat been a drastic reduction in vital
social services.
And thousands of Jews are suffering the
An enormous burden hat been placed on
the Jewish Agency to assume additional, major
responsibilities for social programs.
Your pledge to the UJ A/Federation
Campaign dearly indicates that you care
about easing the great difficulties confronting
our people.
But a pledge is just a promise.
A pledge can't house, clothe, feed or
educate the recent immigrant from Ethiopia.
Or give hope and guidance to a disadvan-
tage teenager in a Youth Aliyah program.
Only one thing can help.
Because the Promised Land needs more
than promises.
Please honor your pledge. Send a check today.
Cash is urgently needed now to help our brethren
at home in Israel Around the World
If you have already made your pledge, please honor
your commitment and fulfill your good intentions.

She noted that students in the
Ulpan are motivated by a variety
of reasons. Some attend to renew
their knowledge of Hebrew that
they learned in their youth; others
plan to visit or settle in Israel.
Still others want to keep up with
the studies of their children, while
some want to be able to explore
the noble messages of the Bible in
the original language
In addition to the study of
Hebrew, the classes include the
exploration of the culture of
Israel, the celebration of the
holidays, visits from Israeli
emissaries, and films on Israel.
The Ulpan approach was
developed in Israel in the period
immediately following statehood
in 1948, when thousands of im-
migrants from scores of countries
speaking tens of different
languages streamed into the new-
ly created country. In order to
enable them to make their way in
the new land and communicate ef-
fectively, an intensive, immersion
system of learning Hebrew was
developed which evolved into the
Ulpan system.
The Utpen program is co-
sponsored by the Department of
Hebrew Language and Literature
of the Department of Education
and Culture of the World Zionist
Organization whkh helps to sup-
port the program.
Registration takes place at the
first session of class, but further

Myra believed in being prepared.
That's why she looked into buying cemetery property in Florida
where she had retired. Her two sisters, her children and her grandchildren
still lived in the Mew York area. And if the truth be known, Myra would have
preferred to have funeral services held in Mew York. But she thought that
would cost too much.
Luckily Myra learned about The QUARDIAM PLAPIe the insurance

decided to talk to The QU ARDI AH PLAN counselor. He told her about
RIVERSIDE and the other members of the guardian family of Jewish

was right for her.
She feels better because now she has more time to concentrate

The Smith Amendment
In August, the President signed into law the first foreign
assistance authorization bill since 1981 which includes an amend-
ment that will have an important effect upon U.S. foreign policy
in the Middle East
The amendment, which Rep. Larry Smith sponsored, clearly
states the opposition of Congress to any sale to Jordan of ad vane
ed weapons until there is significant progress in the peace pro-
cess. It declares that if the President submits to Congress Jor-
danian arms sale of advanced aircraft or new air defense systems,
he also must certify Jordan's public commitment to the recogni-
tion of Israel and its commitment to negotiate promptly and
directly with Israel under the bask tenets of UN Security Resolu-
tions 242 and 338.
This certification is not like the one for progress in human
rights in El Salvador where the Administration had great latitude
in detailing compliance with recognised human rights. It does not
allow broad generalizations about general progress. It requires
Jordan's public commitment to recognize Israel and to enter into
prompt and direct negotiations before Congress will consider
such s controversial arms sale.
King Hussein must bring Jordan further into the peace process
before the President can issue a certification. The call for an in-
ternational conference and no concrete timetable for direct
negotiations with Israel prevents the President today from being
able to certify progress towards peace. In addition, Jordan must
openly recognize Israel's right to coexist peacefully, and it must
publicly end the state of belligerency.
Furthermore, the King must agree to direct and prompt
negotiations with Israel. He cannot call for an international con
ference while the U.S. and Israel both reject one. In addition, the
King's insistence on including the Syrians and Soviets would only
hinder progress.
The King's call for an international conference, his continued
refusal to renounce the state of war between Jordan and Israel
and the lack of a definite timetable for negotiations will not enable
the President to certify a Jordanian arms sale under the new U S
The State Department openly has viewed any amendment as
being a hindrance to further progress in the peace process. Many
in Congress, however, view the amendment as being a dear sign
to the King and the Administration that we will not force Israel to
jeopardize its security until Jordan has fully proven its desire to
end the state of war. After all. if Jordan is truly committed to
peace and if it is our friend and ally, why would it not talk directly
to Israel. That is truly the only hope for a lasting peace.
The Senate and House have increased foreign aid to Jordan this
year, in both the foreign military sales category and in economic
support funds. In addition, the recent approval of $250 million in
supplemental economic assistance to Jordan shows our en-
couragement for Hussein's recent movement in the peace
We must send Jordan and the rest of the Arab world the right
signal. No progress can be made so long as King Hussein insists
on U.S. recognition of the PLO as a prerequisite to any movement
on his part. The United States and Israel have made dear their
readiness to meet with Palestinians who sincerely want peace, but
net with representatives of the world's premier terrorist
organisation. Since beginning direct negotiations with Israel.
Egypt has received the most advanced American arms and has
become the second largest recipient of U.S. foreign assistance. Ii
the President and the Congress were to reward King Hussein
now, what incentive would he have to take further steps towards
peace and recognition of Israel?

Dear Friends:
In Israel, electric bills are up 53 percent. Water bills up 82 percent. Transporta-
ition costs up 100 percent. Not to mention leaps in the price of basic food staples
like bread, eggs and frozen meats. Or increasing wage cuts and freezes, unemploy-
ment and mandatory government dismissals.
While costs are soaring, the shekel is diminishing. And the new, tough economic
i program entails major government cuts in health, education and social programs.
I This has serious consequences for hundreds of thousands of Jews in Israel.
And we can help. Our Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale/United
Jewish Appeal provides social welfare and humanitarian programs here in Greater
i Fort Lauderdale, in Israel and more than 30 lands around the world. Our support is
vital in sustaining those humanitarian services affecting the new immigrant, youth
Droerams for disadvantaged teens, a variety of activities preserving dignity for
brad's aged community, renewing hope for residents of Project Renewal
neighborhoods, education for Jews of all ages, and innovative rural settlement pro-
rrams in Israel. Through our annual campaign, we are helping to secure the Jewish
people's future. Our commitment to Israel demands immediate action to meet the
most difficult economic burden confronting our people.
Cash is unrently needed now, as Israel's newest economic measures bite into those
vitodDrofcrrams that affect so many Jews in need. They are biting the bullet right
now. Solet's do our part to help ease the economic burden facing our brethren.
If you have already made your pledge, please honor your word and fulfill your
good intentions. Send your check today.

Isaac Goldemberg is uni-
que among Jewish-
American and South
American novelists alike. A
native of Peru who has
made his home in New York
City for the last 20 years.
Goldemberg employs ex-
perimental techniques
familiar to readers of South
American fiction to
dramatize the unfamiliar ex-
perience of Jews who found
their way from the Old
World of the Eastern Euro-
pean shtetl to a new world
of Peruvian villages and
towns. This unusual blend is
always fresh, often
fascinating, and occasional-
ly when Goldemberg's
stylistic experiments are
carried too far somewhat
irritating to those who
prefer more conventional
Goldemberg's first novel 7V
Fragmented Life of Don Jacobo
Lerner. originally pnhKah 1977 and now reissued in paper

this novel's hero. Marquitos
Karushansky. is reclaimed by his
father shortly before his thir-
teenth birthday, it is time for Mar
quitos to be circumcised, to
become a Jew.
Marquitos understandably feels
drawn to each of the cultures be
can claim as his heritage, but even
as he struggles to form a coherent
identity from these different
aspects of himself, society forces
him to choose one side only: Is he
a Peruvian or a Jew. a Catholic or

this question, one moment Mar-

Marquitoss life, it seems, may
prove even more splintered that

To dramatize his hero's interior
conflict. Goldemberg throws Mar-
quitos into the middle of a quasi
-:icai soccer game that in-
cludes all the players m Mar-
quitos'* life and whose 'teams'-
fight for the hero's allegiance.
These chapters, told in the voice
of a high-voltage sports an-
nouncer, alternate with first-
person accounts by Marquitoss
former schoolmates and italicised
third-person chapters that play
and replay the central event of the
In Play By Play, as in
Goldemberg's earlier novel, the
author's highly fragmented struc-
ture is designed not only to
underscore his themes of the frac-
tured nature of identity, but to
distance the reader from
characters who begin to seem
historical, almost mysthkal. Un-
fortunately, these same technical
feats can call so much attention to
themselves that they run the
danger of alienating the reader.
But it is a risk well worth taking
for anyone interested in
Goldemberg's highly original vi-
sion of cultures in conflict.

The projection was based on economic changes and the expected
growth of people aged 66 years and over.
Approximately 107 million Americans now have jobs, a 60 per-
cent increase in the last two decades. In 1960, only a minority ai
women at any age were in the paid labor force. Today, nearly
three of every four women of prime childbearing age (25-34) are
in the workforce. There is an equal number of working women in
the 36-44 age bracket. More men than women, however, are
employed, according to American Demographic magazine.

was the day before Passover and
I must have washed hundreds of
dishes and huge pots. This army
has no dishwashers. Not only did
we have fun, but I got my nails
clean that was a bonus.
It really was not all work We
had a "madriach," a leader to us;
he was someone who was so
knowledgeable, so understanding
and so helpful. He works for the
Ministry of Education, and this
was his month in the reserve. Am-
mi (short for Emanuel) took us on
tours. We had much more touring
than I expected, and really not so
much work.
One weekend some of us went to
a Moshav, and we went to a kib-
butz. This was not one that runs a
motel for tourists, but a working
one right smack in the middle of
the Negev desert, about ten miles
from our base, also in the desert.
It was a beautiful place, with
flowers and trees, and lemon
groves, and small cottages. They
had a tremendous plant that
manufactures polyester batting
for quflta, also indoor-outdoor
carpeting. There were many cat-
tle, with one large barn with milk-
ing machines. They were an in-
dependent and self-supporting
kibbutz, and mostly English
speaking making it very plea-
sant for us. We stayed with
families and shared everything
like any other Kibbutznik. The
nicest part were the children and
pets all over the place.
We were taken to the Diaspora
Museum at Tel Aviv University.
This was an unforgettable ex-
perience. I waa so impressed by
the exhibit I went back alone after
my release from the army and
spent three hours there, going at
my own pace. I read the full 52
pages of the 8eroh> of Fire; ,a|
hfstory of the Diaspora. I was so
touched. I couldn t control my
Ammi also took us to the

never dreamed it was so huge.
The mountain and the castle re-

was unbelievably organized. It
waa built as a castle, not a haven
for a thousand Jews who commit-
ted suicide rather than be cap-
tured by the Romans. Thank God
for Joaephus Flavins he may
have been galled a coward and a
traitor, but, if it weren't for him
we never would have learned the

Ammi promised us a picnic at
the beach and this was our ar-
my picnic. We couldn't go on the
beach as we were in uniform, but
we sat right on the walk. He open-
ed a carton, handed out paper
plates and opened cans. This is
what we ate: canned olives, cann-
ed hash, canned corn, canned mix-
ed vegetables, canned grapefruit,
canned apricots, canned halvah,
and chocolate spread. People look-
ed at us and smiled, but who
cared. We did have fun. We were
hungry, we ate and had a great
time. Let me describe chocolate
spread. It's like peanut butter, it
comes in a container, and it is also
sold in the preserve section of the
supermarkets. We never got
desserts, but we did get this
"maichel." They spread it on
bread, on crackers, on sliced ap-
ples, on matzoh, on everything,
and, it's delicious. I took some
home for my children, but not for
myself I wouldn't dare.
The food at the base? Wen we
had a Moroccan cook, so most of it
was peppery, but not too bad. It's
a funny thing, we looked at the
food on the table and said, "Oh,
no, not again, but we ate and
seemed to enjoy it. It waa
nourishing and we never went
hungry. We always had cottage
cheese and Leben, an Israeli form
of yogurt; also olives at every
meal, apples, oranges and
bananas, salads, tasty noodles,
rice, lots of turkey and chicken,
beef very seldom and eggs, eggs,
eggs. If we didn't finish the
scrambled eggs at breakfast, we
had egg salad at the next meal. If
we didn't finish the hard boiled
eggs, we had it covered with some
kind of sauce next time. It was an
unusual menu certainly not.
American style, but interesting
and satisfying.
We spent one weekend in
Jerusalem, staying at a hostel
sponsored by the Jewish Agency:
comfortable rooms, slept 2 or 3,
cold water, but nice warm beds.
We attended some seminars and
toured fascinating Jerusalem.
Saturday we walked up, up, up
hills to the Western Wall. Doesn't
any hill ever go down? The old city
is so impressive. The whole area is
built with Jerusalem stone it's
the law. When the sunset hits the
buildings, they shine like gold.
The day before we left we had a
beautiful luncheon and farewell
party. We were honored to have
General Davidi with us. Before his
retirement he was one of Israel's
most distinguished combat of-
ficers. The Volunteers for Israel is
his brainchild, and he has once
again become active in organizing
the program. The speechei were
very moving. It was such an emo-
tional time, I couldn't help but
chokeup when I was called upon to
accept my certificate and badge. I
was shaken but had to read the
poem I wrote for the occasion.

'Dus Raydele Drayt Zich'
or 'The Wheel Turns .. .'
The following article was written by Florence and Zev Dash of
Coral Springs, about their son, Richard, who has been appointed
Dean of the Alexander Muss High School in Israel.
In the past, when we read in the Floridian about the High
School in Israel, we were so pleased to note the affirmative
response. You see, a very close friend was involved in its forma-
tion. He was a Hebraist, a teacher, a director of the Hebrew
speaking camps, a life-long Zionist, and his name was Levi
And it came to pass that he was also a Guidance Counseler at
Abraham Lincoln High School in Brooklyn, where he counseled
our son, Richard. While in college, Richard did lab animal
research at the NYU Laboratory for Experimental Medicine and
Surgery in Primates. He then went into teaching, and was
tenured by the NYC Board of Education.
And it then it came to pass that he and his wife, Barbara, 9
years ago this Thanksgiving, decided that Israel was the place to
be. They are the parents of 2 Sabras Emanuel, who will be 7 in
October and Talya, who was 4 in May.
It also came to pass that Richie served in the Israel Defense
Forces and is in the Reserves. His command was not called upon
to serve in Lebanon and he got permission from the Army to leave
the country and visit us here, together with Bobbi and the
children. He addressed an Emergency UJA meeting in
Ramblewood East, on July 4,1982 to help raise funds. (Richie lec-
tures here each time he visits) When we, Zev and I, were honored
at a UJA breakfast in Ramblewood East, a letter which Richie
wrote to us from MILUIM (reserve army duty) was read to the
large assembly and it became part of the pitch for funds. The let-
ter was printed in many publications, and appeared in The Flori-
dian issue of February 3, 1984.
The wheel is still turning and it came to paas that Richie went
back to formal teaching, and he became the science "tutor" to the
students at the Alexander Muss High School in Israel. We learned
from children of friends who attended the school that it was the
most rewarding and most unique experience of their lives.
So, now, it came to pass that Richie has been appointed Dean of
the Alexander Muss High School in Israel and the circle is
As we leave for another visit to our children, grandchildren and
the rest of the "mishpucheh," we wish all concerned a happy new
year and further opportunities to instill love of learning and love
of Israel in as many children aa can possibly be accomodated.
The High School in Israel is a beneficiary of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauderdale and \s funded through ate annual
-PederftHbnItJnAted Jewish Appeal campaign.
Remember the Sick
With Rhyme and Reason
Visiting the sick is part
of truthful Jewish
The Mishnak Peak makes us
such time is well
worth giving.
A duty we must all obey
with heart that sympathizes.
Be they Jew or Gentile, we
must tender sweet surprises
by showing up at bedside to
bring comfort to the sick.
No act can be more meaningful
for recovery that's quick;
especially, when friendless
have pain they long endure.
Your smile may be the medicine
to bring about the cure.
So if you know someone
that's ill,
a visit's apropos.
Why not take time from work
or play
to come and say hello?
