South Africa's Reform Jews Against Apartheid
By RonCsillag
TORONTO (JTA) Reform Jews in South
Africa are in the forefront in the battle against
apartheid, but they themselves are considered se-
cond class Jews, says a leading Reform rabbi
from South Africa.
Rabbi Norman Mendel, spiritual leader of the
Temple Emanuel in Johannesburg, told an au-
Jews serving in South Africa's army
dience here recently that Reform Jews, known as
Progressive Jews in South Africa, are leading the
Jewish fight against apartheid, which they con-
sider "indefensible, immoral and evil."
But Reform Jews in South Africa, who number
about 5,000 families of a total Jewish population
of between 110,000 and 112,000, are a
"beleaguered, anxious" community who are tak-
ing more and more risks in speaking out against
South Africa's policy of racial segregation,
Mendel said. He said Reform Jews are fighting
apartheid "against a backdrop of Jewish
discrimination emanating from the Orthodox
"There is day to day diminishment in the
Reform movement in South Africa. Reform are
considered a second class Jewish community,"
said Mendel, a native of Oakland, Calif, who mov-
ed to South Africa in 1978 after having served
communities in Fremont, Calif., Kansas City,
Missouri, and Boca Raton, Fla.
Orthodox Jews Joining The Fight
Orthodox Jews are only now beginning to do
something about apartheid, Mendel maintained.

Project Renewal Helps Thousands in Israel
Needs $65 Million to Complete Campaign
O Briefly
UJA Watch Desk Editor
Jews contributed $160.1 million
from 1979 through last week to
aid 56 distressed Israeli
neighborhoods twinned to U.S.
Jewish communities through Pro-
ject Renewal. But they must still
provide $65 million for the historic
project to fully succeed.
To enhance funding, United
Jewish Appeal recently reaffirm-
ed its determination to help
Federations meet their renewal
campaign goals. UJA will provide
additional speakers, consultations
and materials and encourage ma-
jor donors to aid neighborhoods
besides the one twinned to the
donor's home community.
On the program's progress,
discussions with representatives
of UJA, the Jewish Agency,
neighborhood residents, and
Israeli government represen-
tatives whose agencies also serve
these neigborhoods disclosed that,
overall, Project Renewal has been
remarkably successful.
Indeed, neighborhood visits con-
firmed the testimony. Community
Centers, new schools, paved roads
and cleaner streets have replaced
slum-like conditions. More impor-
tant, working-age adults have
received vocational-technical
training, job counseling and place-
ment; homemakers have learned
how to help their families cope
and to supplement family income;
youngsters have adjusted through
pre-schools; teenagers have un-
wound in athletic facilities; and
senior citizens have relaxed in
recreational and cultural pro-
grams. Resident praise the pro-
ject. Optimism has buoyed spirits.
And many friendships have
developed between U.S. and
Israeli Jews under the project's
Aegis, bringing distant branches
of the world Jewish family closer
On the other hand, progress has
not been uniform. Not all com-
munities have met their fund-
raising goals: sometimes
neighborhood need was
underestimated or fund-raising
capacity was over-estimated; in-
variably, the Israeli economic

crisis intervened. Two years ago,
inflation was 200 percent a year,
depreciating dollars that had been
converted to shekels. One year
ago, Israel began to pare its
budget, but joblessness increased
and reductions of subsidies on
basic commodities, from a loaf of
bread to fuel oil, affected every
family budget. Initially, the
cabinet as reported for the first
time in UJA watch desk exclud-
ed renewal from budget cuts
(Israel under varying formulas
provides about half of renewal
funding in most neighborhoods).
But once the defense budget in-
curred its first $300 million reduc-
tion in a national cut'to a $22
billion budget, nothing was ex-
empt. Renewal progress suffered
as Israel has struggled to rebuild
its economy.

World Jewish Leaders Meet in February
One of the most comprehensive
groups of international Jewish
leaders ever to gather in the
United States will attend the Feb.
18-19, New York, meeting of the
Board of Governors of the Jewish
Agency for Israel.
The Board of Governors, the
Jewish Agency's primary policy
making body, is comprised of
seventy-four members, represen-
ting Jewish community and
Zionist organization leadership.
Following the Board of Governors
meeting, Agency Board members
and staff will participate in Jewish
Agency Week, a series of visits to
Jewish communities throughout
the United States and Canada.
In a joint statement issued in
New York and Jerusalem, Jerold
C. Hoffberger, Chairman of the
Jewish Agency's Board of Gover-
nors, and Arye Dulzin, Chairman
of the Agency's Executive,
described the February meetings
as "a unique effort to bring the
Israeli and Diaspora leadership
closer together. A wide range of
North American Jewish leader-
ship will be able to learn during
the New York meetings, how the
Board of Governors functions.
During Jewish Agency Week,
Israeli and Diaspora members of
the Board will be brought into
direct contact with the leadership
of Federations and Zionist
organizations in the Jewish com-
munities of North America."
The Board of Governors agenda
will include consideration of, and
action on, the Agency budget,
which is primarily expended
through the major program
departments: Immigration and
Absorption, Youth Aliyah, Rural
Settlement and Project Renewal.
Other topics for consideration will
include an update on the absorp-
tion of Ethiopian Jews, and plann-
ing for the June 22-26 Jewish
Agency Assembly in Jerusalem.
During Jewish Agency Week,
teams of Board members and
senior Agency staff will visit com-
munities to conduct briefings on
current Agency programs. These
meetings will involve local cam-
paign leadership, Board of Direc-
tors of Federations, Jewish Agen-
cy Committees and Zionist leaders
designated by the individual com-
munities, in an attempt to in-
crease awareness of the Agency's
far reaching activities.
In commenting on the decision
to hold the February meetings in
New York, Messrs. Hoffberger
and Dulzin stated, "by becoming
involved, the broad based group of
Jewish leaders will contribute to a
deepening of the partnership bet-
ween Israel and World Jewry. The
Board of Governors meeting and
Jewish Agency Week offer oppor-
tunity for furthering our
understanding of one another and
our mutual responsibilities both
for raising of funds and their ap-
propriate use in Israel, through
the Agency's delivery of vital

New York offices of the United
Israel Appeal and at the Federa-
tion of Jewish Philanthropies of
New York.
Renewal, "12 will 'graduate' from
renewal this spring. But 15 clearly
need much more funding. Addi-
tionally, three neighborhoods
(Mevasseret Zion near Jerusalem,
Yavne in the Negev and Rishon
Mizrach near Tel Aviv) still need a
U.S. community partner to
receive funding."
Jews elsewhere in the Diaspora
aid 14 neighborhoods through
Keren Hayesod, essentially a UJA
funding counterpart. But three of
every four Diaspora Jews live in
the U.S., they have the most
Jewish discretionary income and
it is on these Jews that Renewal
ultimately depends.
"The elderly and large families
so common in renewal
neighborhoods are seeing their in-
come eaten as subsidies drop,"
said Gideon Witkon, director-
general of the Jewish Agency's
Project Renewal Department,
funded by the UJA/Federation
Project Renewal Campaign.
"Government Social Welfare and
Education cuts worsen the plight.
Growing joblessness is bringing
many face to face with
catastrophe. They look to
American Jews. I hope you won't
let them down."

Foundation Awards Grants
Support Jewish Scholarship
The National Foundation for
Jewish Culture (NFJC) has award-
ed 16 scholarly grants for the cur-
rent academic year totalling over
$75,000. Dr. Marver Bernstein,
president of the National Founda-
tion, announced that these grants
were recommended by the
NFJC's Academic Advisory Coun-
cil as part of an ongoing program .
to support outstanding scholar-
ship in Jewish Studies. The Coun-
cil, Dr. Bernstein noted, is com-
posed of leading scholars in major
academic institutions throughout
the United States.
Ten NFJC Doctoral Disserta-
tion Fellowships were awarded to
advanced doctoral candidates in
the field of Jewish Studies to
assist them in completing their
dissertations. In addition, six NF-
JC Post-Doctoral Grants were
awarded to facilitate the publica-
tion of first books by distinguished
academicians in the early stages
of their careers.
Dr. Daniel Jeremy Silver, chair-
man of the Academic Advisory
Council and Professor of Religion
at Case Western Reserve Univer-
sity in Cleveland, stated that
"both programs were designed to
encourage the continued develop-
ment of the field of Jewish Studies
by assisting promising scholars in
launching and securing careers, as
well as by broadening the
availability of studies of merit that
might not otherwise reach public
"Since 1961," Dr. Silver observ-
ed, "the National Foundation for
Jewish Culture has played a
significant role in strengthening
the field of Jewish Studies
through its grants programs in
scholarship, awarding more than
$1,250,000 to over 400 scholars in
the field."
"These grants have been a ma-
jor contribution to the develop-
ment of American-trained Judaica
scholars," added Dr. Bernstein.
"NFJC Fellows are now on the
faculties of nearly every universi-
ty department of Jewish Studies
and related disciplines in the
United States and Israel."
The ten recipients of the NFJC
Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship
are: David Adan Bayewita of
Hebrew University, Miriam Bo-
dian of Hebrew University, Carl
Ehrlich of Harvard University,

UJ8. Welcomes Cabinet's Decision
WASHINGTON (JTA) The State Department welcomed the
Israeli Inner Cabinet's decision to accept arbitration to resolve
Israel's border dispute with Egypt over Taba as an "important
step" in Israeli-Egyptian relations.
"The U.S. remains ready to assist as both sides work to bring
the Taba issue to a mutually satisfactory resolution," State
Department spokesman Bernard Kalb said.
UNEMPLOYMENT LAST month dipped below seven percent
for the first time in nearly six years, with a rebound in manufac-
turing helping create 237,000 new jobs, the government said.
IN A case pitting religious practice against the military dress
code, members of the Supreme Court engaged in a lively ex-
change with lawyers on whether the military may ban its
members from wearing skullcaps, turbans, long hair or toupees as
badges of faith. The suit was brought by S. Simcha Goldman, an
Orthodox Jewish officer who was disciplined for disobeying
orders to cease wearing a skullcap, or yarmulke, while on duty as
a psychologist at an Air Force hospital.

The Dilemma
of Power Sharing
In Israel's 1984 national elections to the Knesset, an un-
precedented situation arose: neither of the two major and tradi-
tionally opposed political parties, the Labor Alignment and the
Likud, received enough mandates to be able to form a majority
coalition government. As a consequence, the two largest parties
agreed to join forces to form a National Unity Government.
Several of the smaller parties also joined this government.
In a unique book entitled The Dilemma of Power Sharing,
published recently a year after the establishment of the Na-
tional Unity Government at the initiative of Mr. Yehiel Leket,
Chairman of the World Labor Zionist Movement, prominent per-
sonalities of the Labor Party leadership express their views on
the necessity and effectiveness of this form of government, on the
problems involved in acting within such a framework, and on
their hopes for future accomplishments, despite the difficulties in-
volved. Among those who express their views are Prime Minister
Shimon Peres; Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin; Education
Minister Yitzhak Navon; Abba Eban; and Labor Party Secretary
General Uzi Baram.
The book makes fascinating reading for all those interested in
coalition governments, and in particular in the Labor Party's
stand vis a vis achieving ideological goals and national priorities.
From the tone of expression revealed in the interviews with
Labor leaders which make up this text, it is not difficult to see
how such leaders have managed to change the overall tone of the
country, from unbridled rhetoric to reasonable and well-
considered actions.
The Dilemma of Power Sharing was published in English
because, as Mr. Leket explains in his Introduction, the problems
of Israel are not the sole concern of those in Israel, but also of
friends and colleagues abroad. "It was therefore felt," he writes,
"that the presentation, in English, of the thoughts of the Labor
Party leadership on the situation in Israel today and on expected
future developments. would constitute a welcome contribution
to a better understanding of Israel's situation and the dilemmas it
confronts." The contribution is not only welcome, but necessary
and educational.
The Labor Party called for early elections in 1984 for two prin-
cipal reasons: Israel's disasterous military involvement in
Lebanon, and the equally catastrophic economic situation in the
country, exemplified by a four-digit inflation rate. All the
Members of Knesset interviewed for The Dilemma of Power Shar-
ing are in full agreement that in order to be able to solve at least

those two immediately pressing problems it was imperative to
create and join the National Unity Government, despite basic
disagreements on other issues and deep ideological differences
between the Labor Alignment and the Likud.
Prime Minister Peres opens his statement with an admission
that he is interested in the Party and in the Government, but his
main concern is for the welfare of the State. 'If this government
hadn't been formed," he continues "we would have continued to
sink in the Lebanese quagmire, the full price of which is more ap-
parent today than ever before. I would go so far as to say that just
for this reason it was worth establishing this government." Peres
describes the economic situation, the galloping inflation which
could have resulted in massive unemployment, had the Govern-
ment not been established and managed to introduce the novel
phenomenon of package deals, basing its policy on a partnership
between the Histadrut, the Employers and the Government. He
points out a third sphere of activity, that of the policy regarding
the territories, where there has been a "tremendous change,"
both in the efforts to improve the quality of life in Judea.'Samaria
and Gaza, and in the settlement policy, despite differences of opi-
nion between the Alignment and the Likud. Peres adds: "A
fourth sphere in which this government has acted, despite the dif-
ferences of opinion, concerns the peace process. I believe that just
as we must deal seriously with any threat of war, so must we deal
seriously with every chance of peace, for the sake of our children.
On neither of these issues is there any room for jokes, wisecracks
or cheap party considerations."
Prime Minister Veres also goes into the subject of national cohe-
sion and the difference in the atmosphere in the country now, as
opposed to the previous atmosphere of "hatred, incitement and
demagoguery. I feel that we have introduced a new style," Peres
states. He continues with some reflections on extending the spirit
of cohesion to the Jewish people as a whole, and the Labor Party's
efforts and success in opposing a proposed amendment to the
Law of Return.
Peres admits that it is difficult to run the National Unity
Government, but he has decided "not to waste time on controver-
sies, but to concentrate on decisions and settling matters." He
adds that the Labor Party itself must now begin a new chapter
and "must open itself to new forces." It is no less difficult to lead
the Labor Party than the Government, and in order to maintain
harmony, "one needs all the mental force one can mobilize, a lot
of sangfroid, faith and patience."
Minister of Defence Yitzhak Rabin opens his statement with the
words, "Concerning the National Unity Government I believe
that under the given circumstances and in light of the results of
the 1984 elections, this was the best solution. When I say the best
solution I am not trying to blur the limitations which are inherent
in the fact that the Alignment and the Likud are sitting together
in the Government and bear joint responsibility for conducting
the State's affairs." Rabin maintains that without the formation
of the National Unity Government it would have been much more
difficult to adopt those measures which led to the withdrawal
from Lebanon and the package deals and budget cuts necessary
to save the economy. Regarding the solution to the involvement in
Lebanon, Rabin says that there were "no good solutions," only
bad solutions and worse solutions, and the Government's decision
"was the best of the bad solutions." Rabin also cites difficulties in
expanding the peace process within the framework of the Na-
tional Unity Government, but in terms of Israel's overall security
situation, "the picture is not alarming." He expresses his concern
about the situation in the territories and terrorism and describes
the policy undertaken in these areas.
Minister of Education and Culture Yitzhak Navon remarks that
"The National Unity Government is constructed on the basis of
equality and balance between the two major blocs. This is cer-
tainly not an ideal structure, but it was dictated by the election
results. It isn't simple, but it works much better than I had ex-
pected it to." He analyses the processes by which consensus was
reached in order to achieve what the government has achieved to
date, and the difficulties of functioning within such an inwieldy
framework in so large a government. Navon adds that "the fact
that the coalition has such an overwhelmingly large Knesset ma-
jority is not healthy. Even though the opposition is vociferous, it
is too small to have any influence. The Government's confidence
that it can pass anything which has been agreed to in the Cabinet
through the Knesset, without any problems, is not healthy."
Navon focuses his statement on democracy and what it means to
him: "... first and foremost, respect for every human being
created in the image of God, irrespective of religion, race or
ideology. Coexistence, tolerance, equality"; and continues to
elucidate on how he hopes, through his ministerial position, to
educate towards and maintain democracy as a basic principle in
Israeli society.
Secretary General of the Israel Labor Party describes how be-
ing a part of the National Unity Government has affected the Par-
ty, and the positive and negative aspects of this phenomenon.
Though the Party had made the right decision in joining the
establishment of a National Unity Government with the Likud, he
admits that "It is not easy to get used to being half in power "
though it is for the best as a temporary solution.
Abba Eban, the Chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and
Security Committee analyses the situation from the point of view
of parliamentary history and democratic system. He points out
that he "saw fit to express regret at this attempt to base a
government on the union of disparate ideologies," but that "there
are two levels on which the internal Israeli dialogue, carried out
primarily by the two main political blocs the Alignment and the
Likud is conducted. There is a level of solidarity and there is a
level of deep and sincere dissension." Eban analyses where there
is agreement and where dissent and explains his attitude towards
the position of the Labor Party within the National Unity Govern-
ment framework, the need for this government and the dif-
ficulties it presents. He sums up with the statement: "Though the
whole idea of the National Unity Government is so unusual so ex-
ceptional and bizzare, it is so preposterous that it might even
work. I am more optimistic about it now than I was at the
The Moshe Sharett Institute.

Cost Increases
TEL AVIV (JTA) The cost
of living index rose by a low 1.3
percent during December, the
Central Bureau of Statistics an-
nounced recently. It was the
lowest December C.O.L. increase
in 10 years.
Although it was slightly higher
than the one percent hoped for
and forecast by Finance Minister
Yitzhak Modai, he hailed it as an
indication of the success of the
economic package deal which has
kept down prices and wage in-
creases and lowered the annual in-
flation rate last year to some 160
percent, far below the nearly 300
percent in recent years.
Low monthly increases a^ an-
ticipated for the next three mon-
ths before the start of the finan-
cial year on April 1 heralds new
wage agreements which will now
be negotiated.
During the five months since
the package deal was introduced,
costs have risen by some 14 per-
cent an annual inflation rate of
37 percent.
Energy Minister Moshe Shahal
announced recently that the cost
of electricity and fuel oil for in-
dustry would be reduced, by three
percent for electric power and five
percent for the heavy oil.
But Modai responded by saying
he would not append what he
termed his statutory signature to
the price reduction order as it had
been decided on by Shahal, sitting
alone as the Ministerial Price
Committee. Shahal retorted that
his order was legal as he had sum-
moned the meeting at a time con-
venient to Modai and the others,

South Africa's Reform Jews Against Apartheid
Continued from Page 1
sophisticated than they thought," he said.
Reform Jews, he said, have been fighting apar-
theid for years by holding educational programs
with blacks and "coloreds," or those of mixed
race, and in going "on record as abhoring apar-
theid." Mendel called on Reform congregations
in the United States and Canada to join in the
battle by "adopting" sister Reform congrega-
tions in South Africa.
Part of the problem in apartheid is in the at-
titude of Afrikaners white, native-born South
Africans who are "an obdurate, stubborn" peo-
ple, far more "intractable" than other whites,"
Mendel said.
"The Afrikaner sees himself as the Israeli of
South Africa. It is his people, his folk (being
threatened). His sense of peoplehood must
dominate. He believes his people will be pushed
into the sea." By the year 2000, blacks in South
Africa will number 50 million from the current 25
million, Mendel said.
In general, the rabbi maintained, South African
Jews have not been "as forthcoming" about apar-
theid as they should be.
'Excruciating Moral Dilemma'
Mendel hinted that more economic sanctions
against South Africa may not be in the best in-
terests of blacks and coloreds, since current sanc-
tions are costing about 1,000 jobs a week, mainly
among non-whites.
Jews face "an excruciating moral dilemma" in
serving in the South African army, which must
patrol black townships, with violent results
almost daily, he continued.
As for the sensitive issue of economic and
military ties between Israel and South Africa,
Mendel said that on paper, trade between the two
nations is still "much less" than between South
Africa and other countries. Israel, whose people
have suffered from racism more than any other,
Action Resolutions...
Editor's note: The following was adopted by the 5Jfth
General Assembly of the Council of Jewish Federations,
November, 1985, Washington, D.C. and expresses the views
of the delegates of the member Federations
The Jewish community cannot be indifferent to the plight
of any group anywhere in the world that is denied its basic
human rights. CJF reaffirms its opposition to discrimina-
tion on the basis of race, ethnicity, color, creed, sex, or na-
tional origin. The oppression of millions of non-whites in
the Republic of South Africa by its government has evoked
worldwide denunciation. Specifically, a majority of the
population is denied political, legal, and economic rights
solely on the basis of race. We urge the end of violence on
all sides and the establishment of justice for all the people
of South Sfrica. We join with the Jewish community of
South Africa in calling for an end to apartheid.
CJF and Federations should place on their agendas for
research, study, community forums, education, and con-
sideration for action, all relevant issues.
has continually come under fire for trading with
South Africa.
According to some recent newspaper reports in
Toronto, Israel last year imported $120 million
worth of goods from South Africa and exported
$80 million worth. But, the reports added, a great
deal of barter takes place between the two, in
which South Africa exchanges minerals for
military equipment and know-how.
Mendel conceded that Israel "must re-
examine" its military ties with South Africa but
at the same time, Israel must be in South Africa
"in a highly visible way, in working with people."

Rev. Grauel February 12
Inverrary Golfers to Hear
In celebration of the 38th An-
niversary of the founding of the
State of Israel, Inverrary golfers
will hold their 5th Annual Golf
Classic on behalf of the Federa-
tion/UJA 1986 campaign on Feb.
Following a day of golf, par-
ticipants will sit down to dinner at
the Inverrary Country Club.
Guest speaker at this event will be
celebrated Methodist churchman
and devoted Israel supporter,
Rev. John Stanley Grauel.
For three decades, Grauel has
continued unceasing efforts on
behalf of Israel. His identification
with Israel's cause started with
his impassioned message to the
United Nations on Thursday, July
17, 1947 from a small room
aboard the Exodus. His seven
months aboard that vessel was a
factor in the ultimate successful
UN vote for partition, resulting in
the Creation of the Jewish State.
Grauel's position in the
forefront of humanitarian causes
had earned him many honors and
Koch Says
Absorption Role
Important to
UJA Federation Campaign
New York's Mayor Edward I. Koch, in light of a recent visit
to Ethiopian Olim at Mevasseret Zion Absorption Center near
Jerusalem, said, "The visit made clear why support of UJA and
Federation is very important because they fond these
In a report Koch said he was impressed that UJA/Federa-
tion campaign funds were helping Jews who had made Aliyah,
for a variety of reasons, to become absorbed in Israel. He cited
three children he met at the center, one who had fled from
Ethiopia's famine; another whose family had feared a pogrom
in Morocco; and a third whose family came from England for
religious reasons.
"They were all together at the absorption center," he noted,
being helped by the campaign.
Koch said American Jews should aid Iraelis even if they
disagree with Israeli policies. "Israel makes mistakes like
everyone else," he said, "but all of us have an obligation to
keep Israel strong. So I give to UJA, notwithstanding my
Koch said some anti-Iraeli criticism by others is an anti-Semitic
ruse. He noted that Shiite Muslims, who had hijacked TWA Flight
787 near Athens last year, spirited away passengers with Jewish-
sounding surnames. "They weren't seeking only those with
Israeli passports," he said. "The hatred is directed at Jews. The
fate of Jews worldwide is tied up with the fate of Israel."
He said U.S. Jews should aid Jews oversees despite needs at
home and feel good about it, "When Catholics give to the
Bishop's Fund to propagate the faith and save Catholics and
others from famine," Koch said, "Are they doing something that
is immoral or anti-American? It's ridiculous to think that you are
limited to providing only here in America your charitable con-
tributions. No other group believes that, nor should they. And
why should Jews believe that particularly when, if they don't

When I completed elementary school, I went to Gondar to study
in high school. I had to live five kilometers away, in Wollecka,
where the Jewish community lives.
From high school, I completed teacher training.
After 13 years as a teacher in Jewish schools in Gondar, I decid-
ed to go to Israel because it is my homeland and many Ethiopian
Jews left to go there. Even my parents told me to leave my place
and go through the Sudan. I said I will not go now until all the
Ethiopian Jews go out. But it became hard to stay for a long time
because of the condition of the country.
I asked the Higher Commission for permission to study abroad
aLT^T*" Fl^ly- l 8ucceedi in leaving the country from
Addis Ababa to Khartoum, then to Cairo and finally to Israel.
When I arrived at Ben-Gurion Airport, people were waiting and
took me to the absorption center where I live now.
In the absorption center, we received the things we use and
they showed us how to use things in the house, how to buy
groceries, how to use the money and banks.
From the day we arrived up to now, we received money from
toe bochnut (Jewish Agency) for food as well as for the necessary
things. We are learning the Hebrew language in the Ulpan. We
receive medical treatment whenever we are sick. Our children are
studying in school properly. They are well and learn.
We are trying to be good citizens in our homeland, in the State
of Israel. But, on the other hand, we always think of the people
who are still in Ethiopia, because we are hearing tha they arenot
in a good condition. They are under problems and they are sen-
ding letters to their families who arrived earlier. We are crying
every day for them. *

Sherwia H. Rosensteis, Ezeratirs
I sometimes lay in bed at night
listening to my parents fight.
The yelling lasts long,
the noise hurts my ears.
And thoughts of a parent leaving
gives me night time fears.
I love my parents
both Mom and Dad
Could it be that they're fighting
because I am bad?
I get so angry
What can I do?
So I hit my little brother
with his own baby shoe.
My Dad gets upset
and Mom gets mad
and they put me to bed
and tell me I'm bad.
Why do my parents
yell so much and fight?
Does it really matter
who's wrong or who's right?
Dad sometimes leaves the house
and Mom is home all alone
And in the middle of the night
I hear her cry and moan.
When I'm at school
I can still feel pain
and during our lessons
I stare at the rain.
I used to be a happy child
I'd laugh, play and run.
Now I can't think of anything
I would feel was fun.
I hurt so much
and it's hard for me to say
Exactly how I feel
In a straight forward way.
I need someone to listen to
Is there anybody who hears,
I need a person to sooth my heart
And rid me of my fears.

Reviewed by Joseph Aaron
The further away we get from
the actual events, the more
urgent, it seems, the questions
What did the world know and
when did it know it?
It's been more than 40 years
since the end of the period labeled
the Holocaust a period which
saw the world stand by while six
million Jews were being
systematically murdered on the
sophisticated and cultured conti-
nent of Europe.
Yet it's been only in the past
few years that questions have
begun to be asked about how
much the world knew of the
events as they were unfolding.
And what those who did know did
with that knowledge.
In fact, last year may have
brought us the definitive answers
to those questions. David
Wyman's The Abandonment of the
Jews (Pantheon) is likely to re-
main the most comprehensive
look at American response during
the Holocaust.
But while no book is likely to be
as comprehensive, three new
books are valuable additions in
that they probe more deeply into"
specific areas than Wyman was
able to. And in so doing, they pro-
vide enlightening, and distress-
ing, new insights into the world's
lack of reaction to the slaughter of
the Jews.
Two of the books focus on the
press and the whats, hows, and
whys of its reporting of the
Holocaust and the events that led
up to it. Those are important ques-
tions, for in a free society, it is the
press, like nothing else, which pro-
vides the information by which
people can know what's going on,
and so can respond to what's go-
ing on. And their reactions, in
turn, then affect those of
The impact of that is shown all
too clearly in Deborah Lipstadt's
impressive Beyond Belief. In the
course of her exhaustive research.
Lipstadt, a professor at UCLA,
discovered that President
Franklin D. Roosevelt, from
1933-45, received a daily press
digest of news stories from
around the country. They gave
him a sense of the information
Americans were getting, and so a
sense of how Americans were like-
ly to react to actions he might
take or not take.
Lipstadt makes a convincing
argument that Roosevelt failed in
doing his job, in some measure,
because the press failed in doing
its job.
The book is divided into two
parts. The first focuses on the
period 1933-39 and the major
events that led to the Holocaust -
the Nuremberg Laws,
Kristallnacht, the SS St. Louis in-
cident. Lipstadt's conclusion is
that while reporters on the scene
did a good job of providing infor-
mation about those events, it was
editors and columnists back home
who failed miserably in evaluating
the importance and implications
of that information. All too often,
Lipstadt shows how what should
have been major news stories
were buried on the back pages,
topped by ambiguous headlines,
and filled with disclaiming
In the second part of her book,
Lipstadt looks at the Holocaust
itself and shows how a fear of "be-
ing taken in" by anti-Nazis led the
press to an incredible "matter-of-
fact" response to the story of the
century. There was no lack of in-
formation about the genocide be-
ing carried out in Europe. But
because of the nature of the infor-
mation, most editors considered it
"beyond belief' and so treated it
as just another story.
One example of many Lipstadt
provides is the New York Times'8
decision to play a report on the
murder of one million Jews in
Poland on page 16 next to a story
on the hijacking of a coffee truck
in New Jersey. An illustration of
why so many were so ignorant of
so much.
While Lipstadt's research is
thorough, her writing riveting,
the real strength of the book is
that she lets the facts talk for
themselves. Hers is not a blanket
condemnation of the press but an
examination of how the press
works and a look at the tragic con-
sequences of when it doesn't work
as it should.
But while the reasons the press
didn't work are disturbing, they
take on more tragic dimensions
when those same reasons explain
the failure of a press one exnerts
to be more sensitive to the plight
of Jews. And that is what gives
Haskell Lookstein's Were We Our
Brothers Keepers? its special
poignancy. For while Lookstein
also focuses on the press and on
the coverage of many of the same
events as Lipstadt, his focus is on
the Jewish press.
Lookstein, chairman of the
United Jewish Appeal's Rabbinic
Cabinet, looks at the performance
of the Jewish Telegraphic Agen-
cy, which provides daily news
dispatches, four Yiddish
newspapers, 19 newsletters
covering all Jewish denominations
and major organizations, and
Jewish weeklies in Chicago,
Boston, and Philadelphia.
Like Lipstadt, Lookstein finds
the Jewish press fell very short in
providing its readers with infor-
mation about the Holocaust. Its
failure, Lookstein shows convinc-
ingly, resulted from a desire not
to "make waves" for fear of
awakening anti-Semitism or
upsetting President Roosevelt,
seen as a true friend of the Jews.
Lookstein speaks with an ap-
pealing passion in asserting that
Jewish Americans did so little to
help their brethren in Europe
because they knew so little. The
press they counted on, through a
failure of both nerve and ability,
simple blew the biggest Jewish
news story since Moses at Sinai.
But that American Jews
weren't the only ones guilty of a
lack of response is clear from
Jewish Leadership During the
Nazi Era part of the Holocaust
Study Series.
The book contains five essays,
including one by Wyman, focusing
on the reaction of Jewish leader-
ship in the United States, the
Yishuv, Great Britain,
Switzerland, and Latin America.
While the information provided
is of historical value, because it
focuses on individuals and
organizations unknown to
Americans and because it is
somewhat scholarly in tone, it will
be of less interest to the general
Lipstadt's and Lookstein's
books, on the other hand, are
essential for anyone who writes
for the press. Or for anyone who
reads it.

'Brain Drain' at Technion
Jerusalem Post Reporter
HAIFA Israel's computer
future is moving to the U.S. with a
massive brain drain from the
Technion's computer sciences
faculty, whose staff are accepting
more lucrative posts in American
universities and industry.
The dean of the faculty, Prof.
Azaria Paz, noted in a memoran-
dum to the Universities Grants
Committee that, during the past
two years, 10 senior faculty
members had left for high paid,
senior positions in the U.S. They
included an American immigrant
who decided to return home after
two years at the Technion,
"because we are unable to pay the
minimum needed for decent liv-
ing." Another was an Israeli who
had studied in the U.S., returned
here and then left again.
All the emigres had doctorates
in computer sciences, Paz told The
Jerusalem Post.

Paz stressed that those who left
were all of top rank and now hold
senior positions in computer
faculties at well-known American
universities, or head research
departments in such firms as IBM
and Digital.
"The Technion cannot compete
with American salaries, or even
those in industry, and we all ac-
cept that. But when no senior
faculty member can live on his
wages, the situation is intolerable
and augurs very badly for our
computer and artificial in-
telligence future, because these
experts teach the new generation
of engineers and scientists," he

too ashamed even to talk about

The teacher-student ratio in the
computer faculty has reached an
"intolerable" level of 1:40 as
against 1:10 in the advanced coun-
tries, Paz stated. Even with this
high ratio, only 100 of the 500 can-
didates for undergraduate study
could be admitted this year, for
lack of lecturers. At least half of
the 400 turned away were good
enough for admittance.
The long-term solution, he said,
was to create "awareness that
first-rate academic staff must be
given a decent wage."
But until the country could af-
ford to pay such salaries, he pro-
posed attracting bright young

From Moscow
Taking a hard line, the Soviet
delegate to Israel's RAKAH
(Communist Party) convention in
Haifa said that his country would
not renew diplomatic relations
even if Jerusalem agreed to Rus-
sian participation in an interna-
tional conference on the Middle
East (Kol Yiaroel, Dec. 6). Mikhail
Menashev declared that "before
diplomatic relations are restored,
territorial problems must be solv-
ed." (Moscow previously has in-
sisted on Israel's withdrawal from
the territories gained in the 1967
Sue-Day War as a preconditions to
improved relations.)
Menashev added that the Soviet
position on the emigration of Rus-
sian Jewry remains unchanged
and denied that the teaching of
Hebrew in the Soviet Union is
regarded as a crime.
At least 19 of the 20 Communist
parties invited from both Soviet-
bloc and Western nations sent
representatives to the tiny
RAKAH party's 20th convention.
Israel's President Chaim Herzog
addressed the opening, telling
reporters that "every possibility
and every slim ray of hope to br-
ing about a positive change"
regarding Soviet Jewry must be

It is only available to members of the American Jewish Congress.
Since we inaugurated our International Travel Program in 1958, some
350,000 members have participated in our tours to Israel, as well as to
40 countries on six continents. Tours which have earned the reputation
of being, quite simply, the best there are.
What is the American Jewish Congress?
We are a Jewish human rights and legal action organization, founded
nearly 70 years ago. Our original aims were to strive for the creation of a
Jewish homeland in Palestine; to fight all forms of inequality, discrimina-
tion and anti-Semitism; to strengthen ties between Jews of America and
Jews throughout the rest of the world.
That was 70 years ago. What about now?
Our goals are the same, but the issues have changed. Our support
of Israel is unqualified and fundamental. We have been, and remain, an
integral part of the Mid-East peace process. At -home, we are not afraid
to denounce the bigotry of a Louis Farrakhan or strive to eliminate, in
the courts and out, all forms of racism, bigotry, discrimination and anti-
What does this have to do with travel?
In our 40th anniversary year we determined that a concrete demon-
stration of our concern for, and interest in, world Jewry would be to give
our membership the opportunity of traveling to Israel and many other
countries with Jewish communities. Since then, we have become the
world's largest Jewish travel program.
What is so special about traveling with AJCongress?
Our tours are renowned for excellence, sophistication, innovation,
style and unrivaled value. Our members travel together, never with com-
mercial tour groups. Everywhere we go, we arrange unusual and special
events, briefings on local Jewish life, meetings with Jewish communities
plus visits to each country's most popular sites and attractions.

U.S. Aid
To Israel
'86 Cut
U.S. aid to Israel for the current
fiscal year will be cut in order to
meet the requirements of the
Gramm-Rudman law passed by
Congress last month, the State
Department confirmed recently.
The new budget-balancing law
will force the Reagan Administra-
tion to trim security assistance to
all countries by a total of $420
million, State Department
spokesman Charles Redman said
at a press briefing.
"As a result, every country that
receives such assistance from us
will see its funding levels cut this
year," Redman said.
He added that although the im-
pact of the law on foreign aid
levels for this year are still being
evaluated, "we expect all cuts to
be shared across the board by all
countries, including Israel."
Redman was responding to a
question apparently raised by a
report in The Washington Post
that Israel might be requested to
return some of the $1.2 billion in
economic assistance that it has
already received. Like other reci-
pients of foreign aid, Israel is
awarded the total amount of
economic assistance approved by
Congress in one lump sum at the
start of a new fiscal year.
According to the Post report,
the 4.3 percent reduction that the
Administration will apply to each
nation's assistance program
might force the Administration to
request that Israel return $51
million of what it has already been
awarded. If Israel is not asked to
give the money back, the same
amount might be added to the
budget cuts for other aid reci-
pients, the Post report said.
Suggested Amounts To Be
Citing State Department of-
ficials, the report suggested that
the $51 million might be deducted
from supplemental economic
assistance that was tacked on to
the fiscal year 1985 foreign aid
bill. Israel has already received
half of the $1.5 billion Congress
approved in supplemental
assistance, while the other half
was to be handed over in 1986.
In addition, Israel has not yet
received all of the $1.8 billion in
military aid that it has been
awarded for fiscal year 1986, and
the report suggested that the
Gramm-Rudman cuts could apply
to that part of Israel's aid package
as well. When he offered the total
figure of $420 million recently,
Redman referred to security
An Israeli Embassy spokesman
declined comment on the State
Department's announcement,
saying only that the new law was
being studied.

Charitable Contributions Have
New Income Tax Opportunity
The following is a valuable tool
in preparing your 1985 Federal
Income Tax Return, submitted by
Bernard I. Berne, Deerfield Beach
accounting instructor and income
tax practitioner.
For contributors to the United
Jewish Appeal, to houses of wor-
ship, to such organizations as
B'nai B'rith and Hadassah, as well
as to other religious and
charitable organizations, a 1985
tax law change offers a valuable
tax reduction option.
On page 2 of the new "1040
Federal Income Tax Instructions"
booklet, under the heading, "Im-
portant Tax Law Changes," is the
"Deduction for Charitable Con-
tributions: Generally, for 1985, if
you do not itemize your deduc-
tions, you may deduct one-half of
your qualified charitable
This represents a liberalization
of the 1984 law which permitted
you to "deduct 25 percent of your
qualified charitable contributions,
but not more than $75."
The provisions of the 1986 law
will depend on how Congress
responds to President Reagan's
tax reform proposals during the
next few months.
Example I
How a person who does not
itemize deductions on Schedule A
may enter his contributions on
page 2 of Form 1040.
34 b Cash contributions ...
34 c Noncash contributions ...
34 d Total
34 e Divide the amount on line 34
$1,000 is subtracted from ad-
justed gross income.
The result: lowered taxable
If a person has been itemizing
deductions on Schedule A during
the past few years, he should con-
sider the option of refraining from
itemizing this year and showing
his contributions on page 2 of
Form 1040.
In that case he will retain the
advantage of the "zero bracket
amount" shown on Schedule A,
line 25. That amount, $3,540,
$2,390, or $1,770, depending on
filing status, is built into the 1985
Tax Table and the Tax Rate
Schedules. In addition, he will
benefit from the new deduction of
one-half of his contributions.
Example II
How a married person filing a
joint return can benefit from the
new tax law dealing with
charitable contributions.
Assume he made contributions,
as in Example I, of $2,000 and
paid taxes, interest -and other
deductible items amounting to
If he uses Schedule A, he will
have a total of itemized deduc-
tions on line 24 amounting to
On line 25, he would write his
"zero bracket amount"
He would then subtract line 25
from line 24 and write the answer
on line 26 and on Form 1040, line
Assuming he chooses to take ad-
vantage of the new option, his
, total contributions of $2,000, as in
Example I, will entitle him to
, deduct on line 34 e
Compare this with the Schedule
A answer above of
He has gained in deductions
by taking advantage of the new
tax law.
Not everyone can take advan-
tage of the new option.
Example III
Assume the person in Example
II had made contributions of
but paid taxes, interest, and other
deductible items amounting to
His Schedule A total on line 24
would have been
On line 25 he would have writ
ten his "zero bracket amount"
His answer on line 26 and Form
1040, line 34 a would have been
This would be higher than the
deduction in Example I of
by the amount of $460
In this case, Schedule A should
be filed. Each taxpayer, or the
person who prepares his return,
should calculate deductions both
ways, to see which gives him the
greater benefit: the old way, using
Schedule A, or the new way,
showing contributions on page 2
of the 1985 tax return.
Charitable contributors deserve
this new tax break.

The JCC is a major beneficiary
agency of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale, receiv-
ing funds from the annual United
Jewish Appeal campaign.
JCC staff votes Claire Kaufman
"Volunteer of the Month" for
December '85. For the past three
years, Kaufman has been coming
to the JCC campus regularly as a
visitor a volunteer with a pur-
pose. She comes to serve a special
group of people who need a special
kind of help.
Called Support Groups JCC
has been offering regular sessions
for the newly bereaved both
men and women who have lost
their spouses and has come to
establish a very comfortable rap-
port with her people during their
weekly "care units."
At present a group of 35, most
of them women, are enrolled in
the Thursday morning support
group at the JCC. There is no
charge for these meetings.
"I know bow they feel," says
Kaufman "Having gone through
this traumatic experience myself
four years ago. If I can help only
one person the way somebody
helped me when I lost my hus-
band, I have good reason to go on
with my life!'7
Kaufman says the shock of
heartbreak and separation from
someone you've been together
with for 20-30-40 or more years is
too much for many of the newly
widowed to handle. "They close
the door too quickly they make
hurried decisions and don't learn
how to cry," she adds.
The person who helped Claire
Kaufman four years ago was a
Volunteer Facilitator for the Men-
tal Health Association of Broward
County. "I was so grateful to this
wonderful woman who helped me
adjust, that I, too, decided I could
volunteer my services to show my
appreciation. And so she applied
to the association for training
knowing that no one could be real-
ly effective in this program unless
that person had gone through the
experience personally. Since her
affiliation with the association,
she has been honored twice with
special awards.
Kaufman estimates she has seen
and helped 500 people during the
last four years. "Some of the peo-
ple I've seen many on a one to
one basis could have been called
suicidal, they were so
devastated," she reports, "Today,
they're dating and traveling and
enjoying life."

In God We Trust
We are the children of the Lord
Who rules both land and sea,
Before whose Torah we all bow,
And pray so fervently.
We put our trust in Him alone,
Whose truth abides each day
Unlike the so-called truth of man
That often goes astray.
His deeds of goodness comfort us
In times of stress and pain,
And so we utter praise to Him;
Blessed be his name!...
Oh, may it be Your will to make
Each wish of ours come true,
And of Your people Israel
Who look for help from You.
Accept our prayer, Oh G-d of love,
And let our faith yet thrive
For only with-Your saving truth
Can we for good survive.
