SAMARKAND, USSR Three blocks from a
stately minaret on a dusty street called Khud-
zhunskaya stands a drab brick building with no
distinguishable markings, where early each mor-
ning the sounds of Hebrew prayer break the
stillness of the Central Asian dawn.
Here in this synagogue in the heart of the
Islamic region of the Soviet Union, as daybreak
comes with the shouts of laborers and the blare of
truck horns, religious Jews stroll the mosaic floor
.of their one remaining house of worship, mur-
muring morning devotions.
Twenty men, wearing the characteristic square
hats of the region called tubitekas, recite from
memory prayers as old as the city of Samarkand.
They flip through the pages of prayer books and
carefully scan the face of each new arrival. When
one is recognized, he is flashed gold-toothed grins
and greeted with the Tadjik welcome: Salom.

Hebrew Day School Super-
Thon Feb. 26 Needs You
The Hebrew Day School will be having a Super-Thon on
Wednesday, Feb. 26, at 9:30 a.m. The purpose of this Super-Thon
is to raise some much needed funds to purchase AV Equipment.
The Day School hopes to be able to raise $5,000 from the Super-
' According to Assistant Director Tema Friedman, "Our Super-
Thon represents a way in which the public can help us help
ourselves. During a one-hour time period, each participant will
walk, run or jog around a 220-yard track as many times as he or
she can. For the next few weeks, the children will be busy asking
neighborhood friends and businesses to sponsor them for so much
money per lap. For example, if you sponsor a child for 25 cents
per lap and he/she jogs 20 laps, then your pledge would only be $5.
Most joggers should be able to complete 25 to 35 laps.
When the Super-Thon is over, you will be mailed a thank you
letter which will let you know how many laps your joggers com-
pleted and the total amount of your pledge."
Hebrew Day School is a non-profit organization, and your paid
pledge is tax-deductible.
For further information, please contact Tema Friedman, at

From Israel's Consul General
I would like to comment on the Syrian and Lybian responses to
Israel's interception of the Lybian aircraft as follows:
The governments of Syria and Lybia have sharply condemned
Israel's action and have issued violent threats of retaliation.
On November 10, 1958, the Syrian air force intercepted King
Hussein's jet in Syrian airspace after Damascus had given permis-
sion for his aircraft to enter Syria. When he refused to obey the
Syrian orders to land his plane in Damascus, they tried to shoot
him down. King Hussein discussed this incident in his 1962 book
Uneasy Lies the Head, calling it "the narrowest escape from
death I have ever had."
On July 22, 1971 following a coup attempt against Sudan's
leader Numeiri (then an ally of Khadafy), a BOAC airplane on a
flight from London to Khartoum was ordered, while flying in Ly-
bian airspace, to land at Benina airfield near Benghazi. On board
the plane were 105 passengers and two of the Sudanese coup
leaders, Colonel Babiker al-Nur and Major Hamadalla. The pilot
tried to change his course and fly to Malta and when the Maltese
authorities denied his request to land there, he was forced under
Lybian threats to land at Benina. The two Sudanese were taken
off the plane and transferred to Tripoli, after which the plane was
permitted to return to London. The Lybians delivered the two
Sudanese prisoners to the Sudanese authorities, who had them
The above two examples demonstrate the hypocrisy of Syria
and Lybia, a cynicism even more blatant when one considers that
Syria and Lybia took aggressive unjustified action against the air-
craft of countries with which they were at peace, while Israel
acted in self-defense in an attempt to apprehend terrorists backed
by countries who have declared themselves to be in a state of war
with Israel. YEHOSHUA TRIGOR

Do you remember, when you were a child, the neighborhood
bully would pick on everyone and when you were the victim your
Mom or Dad would say "stand up to him, he's just a bully and if
you stand up to him he'll back down!" I remember incidents like
that and I'm reminded of them by recent events in Europe and
the Middle East.
You see, there is a bully in the Mediterranean neighborhood and
his name is PLO sponsored terrorism. Just like the neighborhood
bully of childhood the only response to this bully is to stand up to
him! We cannot give in to the threats and the attacks for that is
exactly what the bully wants. We have to stand up to the PLO
What do the terrorists want? Among other things they want
you and me to be afraid to travel to Israel so that Israel's economy
will suffer. Many people are cancelling or postponing trips to
Israel but I say that is the wrong response.
The right response is to go to Israel now, or to plan to go soon,
so that we show the bully that we will not be intimidated. If you
are planning a trip or a vacation for this summer and have ruled
out Israel I implore you to go to Israel. If you were planning on
another destination Europe, Mexico, the Islands change
your mind and go, instead, to Israel.
The people of Israel need to know that we are with them and the
terrorists need to be shown that we will not be intimidated.
It doesn't hurt that El AI is acknowledged to be the world's
safest airline or that direct flights to Tel Aviv with no European
stops are available from Miami, so please consider a trip to Israel
to show Israel, the world and, especially the terrorists, that we
will not be bullied.
Think about it! Let's not be bullied!

Tragedy and Hope in Space
The nation wept last month. We wept for the fallen men and
women of the Challenger space-shuttle mission that ended in
tragedy shortly after it began.
President Reagan voiced our shared sense of loss simply and
eloquently, and as we sifted through the emotional ashes of this
frightening firestorm in space, we knew we shared much besides
the anguish of the moment.
We Americans talk of our commitment to pluralism loudly and
often. At the same time, however, many of us act in a very dif-
ferent manner, distrustful and suspicious of those who do not
share our world view.
We may well be a mosaic rather than a melting pot, enjoying
our ethnic differences and celebrating our individuality, but that
sense of identity can and must be used positively.
Nowhere is American pluralism, and the commitment to ex-
cellence shared by all of the groups that together make up our
society, more apparent than in the colorful corps of astronauts.
These modern pioneers, these explorers of the frontier of space,
come from a variety of racial, religious, ethnic and cultural
backgrounds. They share the joy of discovery, the hunger for ex-
ploration, the relish for new and untried experiences. From their
drives and accomplishments, we all grow richer.
The terrible tragedy in space threw a bright spotlight on seven
Americans. Together, they were pushing humankind forward
another step along a road filled with both promise and peril.
Others will fall in behind them now because as a species it is
our nature to keep moving forward, to keep learning.
Astronaut Judith Resnik, a Jewish American, died with her
companions aboard Challenger. She was revisiting space. Her
presence had focused the attention of her fellow Jewish
Americans on Challenger's mission in much the same manner as
the nation's schoolchildren followed the shuttle because teacher
Christa McAuliffe was aboard. Each astronaut was accompanied
by a special as well as a general, cheering section.
And so we celebrated our pluralism and the hopes and
dreams that bind us together.
There was great tragedy in space and hope for the future as

As members of the next generation, these

meaningless peace. It pleases me to. see
young people involved in such a timely
issue of world concern. Efforts like those
of the Judaica High School are very impor-
tant in keeping the spotlight of public at-

the Soviet Union. Only through constant
pressure will the Soviet Union change its
treatment of Soviet Jews. I commend these
students and encourage them to continue
their efforts on behalf of the Jews and
other persecuted minorities of the Soviet
I will continue to speak out so that one

Jewish is Hip
By MARJORIE LEVIN
I love collecting the small but telling signs that Jewish is hip.
Show business, of course, has always loved things Jewish.
There have always been so many Jews involved, especially in the
creative end. Yiddish expressions, inflections, ways of looking at
life have long been part of the entertainment scene, among non-
Jews as well as Jews.
Journalism is more and more affected by the Jewish turn of a
phrase. Certain words, such as "chutzpah" or "mishegas," are
not even defined any more. A person or business presented as ex-
pert in computers or shoes or financial planning is called a maven,
with no explanations offered.
And food well, breathes there an American who is unfamiliar
with the more common Jewish foods?
Actually, there is one American I know who never heard of mat -
za. She was born and bred in central Pennsylvania and lived a big
chunk of her adult life in Kansas City, Mo. I can't imagine how she
lived to age 36 without encountering matza; Kansas City is
Midwest, but it's not unhip. The lady is, sadly, but I'm working on
her. Where there's life, there's hope.
My parents moved to Manhattan from Boston, when billboards
all over read "You don't have to be Jewish to love Levy's
(bread)." I'll never forget my amazement at the enormous stand-
up Hebrew National delis, where hoards of Midtowners who
didn't all "look Jewish" feasted on kosher corned beef and
kugel and four varieties of knishes.
I want to say, for the record, that in no other place I've been,
not even the Big Apple or Philly, can they make a good Boston
knish. (Someday I'll find out what's in it. It's meat, but not liver.
If anyone out there knows, tell the world; it needs that knish.)
The bagel, of course, has been "with-it" for years, but now it's
made the big time. I'm referring to the Sara Lee company, which
is, according to full-page ads in this month's magazines, introduc-
ing its own bagels.
Now, I'm not going to give up my Sunday morning ritual of
selecting fresh bagels, one at a time, from the bags in the wooden
baskets at my corner grocery, but when Sara Lee notices bagels,
they've become as universal as a corned-beef special.
Speaking of meat, have you noticed how many otherwise non-
kosher establishments carry kosher deli? Around my way, it's de
rigueur, at least with the more upscale eateries. A "fancy-foods
emporium" advertises party platters heaped with brisket, corned
beef, pastrami, roast beef, salami all Hebrew National and
Empire Kosher turkey breast.
The proprietors say this Kosher meat is the best, and that's why
they sell it, and there's absolutely nothing contradictory, in their
view, about their selling ham as well.
"Kosher" is another word that's part of the vocabulary of every
hip American. It might refer to food, or to a business deal, but
everyone understands it.
In the Dec. 30 issue of Newsweek, the "Top of the Week" sec-
tion had an interesting detail. The section quoted. Leslie Wexner.
chairman of the Limited, Inc. as saying he ^ias "terminal
shpUkes" that drives him to try something new.
Newsweek defined the word "Yiddish for 'antsiness' but
what I find interesting is not the definition or the fact that Wex-
ner so expressed himself. It's the fact that if Newsweek chose
"shpiles" to entice readers, then "shpilkes" is becoming hip.
A young comedian did a "shuck" on Johnny Carson New Year's
Eve. He said one of his parents is Catholic and the other is Jewish
He said he was brought up Catholic, but he approached his
Catholic education "with a Jewish mind." If he'd been working
the Catskills, you just know he would have said he had iT

Amin Gemayel. Gemayel, who
would be stripped of much of his
power under the Syrian plan, is
fighting Syrian-backed militias
near Beirut. Artillery was used by
both sides in battles ten miles
from the capital. The Associated
Press reports that Syrian army
units have been deployed in moun-
taintop positions to back the
militias against forces loyal to
Pro-Syrian Druze leader Walid
Jumblatt blames Gemayel for the
latest round of fighting. He
predicted that Gemayel would at-
tempt to consolidate an area that
would extend through Druze ter-
ritory down to Israel's security
belt in South Lebanon. He said
that Lebanon's problems would
not end until Gemayel is "in his
coffin." Israeli observers
noting that Israel no longer plays
any role in the Lebanese struggle
aay that most Israelis are not
unhappy at seeing Gemayel stand
up to Damascus as it attempts to
consolidate its hold on Lebanon.
"Massive output by producing
countries in the face of slack de-
mand" and a mild winter in the
northern hemisphere contributed
to a fall in oil prices "to levels not
seen since 1979" (Associated
Press, Jan. 22).
The major U.S. domestic grade
of crude, West Texas in-
termediate, sold for $20.90 a bar-
rel, and Great Britain's North Sea
crude recovered 60 cents a barrel'
to reach $20.30 (by way of com-
parison, the price of oil in 1980
went as high as $84 a barrel).
The Saudis, who had kept prices
up by producing at a 20-year low,
"are now making up for lost time
and pumping far more oil than
their agreed (OPEC) rate," AP
quoted Britain's Financial Times
as saying. "As a result, the oil
price is indeed falling out of
bed .. this is partly, then, a
struggle for power" among oil

The play, which is open to the

"Trial and Error" reveals the in-

educate the audience about the
plight of Soviet Jews. An or-

prior to his arrest, "Let there be

Peres Lays Wreath at Bergen-Belsen
By DAVID KANTOR
BONN (JTA) Premier
Shimon Peres of Israel laid a
wreath at the Jewish memorial
monument on the site of the
camp near Hannover last week. A
cantor recited Kaddish, the
prayer for the dead. The Israeli
leader visited the documentation
center where he examined
photographs and fragments of
literature attesting to the
atrocities committed there more
than 40 years ago.
Peres walked along the rows of
deserted barracks, vestigial re-
mains of the Holocaust. He said
little. He was visibly moved and
fought to hold back tears. At least
20 members of his family were
among the hundreds of thousands
of Jews and others who perished
Peres' visit to the site was
described as private, something
quite apart from the political and
economic aspects of his official
three-day visit to West Germany.
Although he was accompanied
by a ranking politician, Prime
Minister Hans Albrecht of the
federal state of Lower Saxony, on
his tour of Bergen-Belsen, their
conversation concerned the past
and plans to expand the documen-
tation center into a research and
educational facility that will serve
as a meeting place for German
youth, the post-war generation
with no memories of the Third
Peres said after the visit that he
went to Bergen-Belsen in part to
promote understanding and
reconciliation with the German
people. He spoke of the new
democratic Germany with which
Israel wants to establish coopera-
tion and promote understanding.
The Israeli Premier said he was
primarily interested in launching
a dialogue but this could not be
done unless memories of the past
are kept alive. In an interview
with the German newspaper BUd,
Peres said of the Holocaust that
Israelis and Jews all over the
world "cannot forget or let this be
forgotten." He added that "a new
Germany has arisen from that hell
and that gives me reason for
Peres' words about reconcilia-
tion were reminiscent of those
spoken by the last prominent
visitor to Bergen-Belsen, Presi-
dent Reagan, though in a dif-
ferent context. Reagan, who
visited West Germany last May,
went to the death camp site in a
last-minute change of itinerary in
order to deflect criticism and
outrage over his plans to place a
wreath at the Ge man military
cemetery at Bitburg, where about
50 members of the notorious Waf-
fen SS are buried among other
German war dead. Reagan's visit
to Bergen-Belsen was boycotted
by Jews, as was his appearance a
few hours later at Bitburg.

Peres' Visit to Britain a Success
By MAURICE SAMUELSON
LONDON (JTA) Israeli
Premier Shimon Peres sealed the
success of his official visit to Bri-
tain by convincing many of his
hosts that it is up to Jordan rather
than Israel to take the next impor-
tant Middle East peace step.
After years of being cast as an
intransigent obstacle to peace,
Israel was convincingly portrayed
by Peres as being genuinely anx-
ious for an end to the conflict,
ready to compromise on pro-
cedural matters, and sensitive to
the needs of its Arab neighbors.
On the bilateral level, he
secured Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher's agreement to be the
first British Premier to pay an of-
ficial visit to Israel. Thatcher is
also reported to have agreed to
terminate the British govern-
ment's processing of Arab boycott
documents, a long-standing bone
of contention between London
Such achievements were al! the
more remarkable as the

culminating in the resignation
from the Cabinet of Leon Brittan.

On bilateral matters, I'- M *aid
he had seen no s.gn of Britain
relaxing her arms embargo on
Israel. However, on the Arab
boycott, it was reported here that
Thatcher has agreed to -top the
Foreign Office's practice of
signatures on documents certify-
ing that goods sold to the Arabs
do not originate in Israel.
Such a practice, regarded as
discriminatory against a friendly
country, has been strongly
criticized by a House of Lords
Committee, which recommended
its discontinuation. But Arab
trade circles have frequently
warned that it would damage Bri-
tain's business in the Middle East
and so far the Foreign Office has
taken such threats seriously. It
now remains to be seen how quick-
ly Thatcher's reported promise
will be implemented.
Besides his political talks, Peres
had lunch with Prince Charles and
the Princess of Wales, and met

Rina, a homemaker in Beer-

reaching out to help the Ethiopian
Jews, the newest newcomers in
this land of immigrants.
"I'm a paraprofessional at the
Beersheva absorption center,"
said Rina proudly. "As new im-
migrants come in, I'm called to
assist. I'm assigned to three or
four families. On my first day with
them, I go to their absorption
center apartments, and show
them how water comes out of the
faucet, and how the toilet works,
and so on.
"The next day, I take them to
the supermarket," she added. "I
show them what foods and clean-
ing materials to buy, how to pay
for them, and the safe way to
cross a busy street. Then we go
back to the apartment, and learn
how to prepare and store the food,
and how the stove works."
Two to three weeks are allowed
for this initial settling in. Then in-
fants begin kindergarten, children
are sent to school, and adults start
at ulpan to learn the new
"This is a different kind of
aliyah," said a Jewish Agency
kindergarten teacher in Beer-

"These children have never

they are frightened of dolls. But

easiest with the kids."

HAWAIIAN GARDENS recently held its an-
nual breakfast on behalf of the 1986 Jewish
Federation/United Jewish Appeal campaign,
where more dollars were raised. According to
Hawaiian Gardens UJA chairman Julius
Mines, more people attended this breakfast
side the kindergarten as in. Eight-
year-old Anat was fascinated by
the leather gloves worn by a
visitor to her class. Hesitantly she
reached for them, took a moment
to work out where the thumb
should be and quickly
discovered their advantage.
"Warm!" she exclaimed.
Some 85 percent of immigrants
past school age arrive illiterate in
any language, so the educational
challenge alone is considerable.
"We've had to develop new
methods for teaching Hebrew to
people who are unaccustomed to
symbols representing sounds,"
said a Negev ulpan teacher, whose
former pupils have included North
African, American, European and
Soviet Jewish immigrants. "But
the motivation of the Ethiopian
Jews is enormous. They're very
cooperative and hardworking."
Language goals are pragmatic.
Names and spellings of local
vegetables are learned as ingre-
dients for vegetable soup, with the
recipe taught too. Classes in
modern Israeli history and
culture, and general knowledge
are enthusiastically received,
although sometimes sensibilities
are offended. When one of the
slides included in a family plann-
ing class for women showed a nak-
ed man, the women walked >a* in

Friends of Tel Aviv University
consider it a major feather in their
cap: the guest speaker for their
Seminar Associates meeting in
February will be Dr. Edward
Teller, one of the most prominent
scientists in the world.
Dr. Teller will address a
breakfast meeting of the Seminar
Associates on Friday, Feb. 21, at
Teller's name is probably most
familiar to people as one of the
scientists who developed the atom
bomb during World War II. He is
also known as a staunch propo-
nent of what he insists be properly
called the Strategic Defense In-
itiative, though the press and the
public have come to use the
euphemism "Star Wars."

Seminar Associates and the lec-
ture by Dr. Teller, please call the

That wisdom may be ours,
That we may use with diligence
Our appointed hours.
That we may worship You at last
Much better than before,
That we may learn by loving You
To love each other more.
That we may set our virtues free,
Long bound as if in chains,
That we may yield the best in us
In time that yet remains.
Oh, grant that we outdo ourselves
So we can make amends
And teach us, G-d, to do good
Before the journey ends.
We pray that we may plan ahead

To wisely count our days!

JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE OF BROWARD COUNTY
DOS IS A TATA?
Times are changing. Approx-
imately 20 years ago, a father's
role in pregnancy and birth was
twofold. Nine months after he did
the first one, he handed out the
candy and cigars.
Life then settled down and he
continued or began his singular
parental role as breadwinner. His
emotional and physical role as
father was almost nonexistent, at
least in the early years of the
child's life. At times he may have
felt like an outsider, lonely and
neglected. Perhaps, he wished
that he too could feel the love and
involvement in his child's growth
and care that his wife was feeling.
With the advent of two career
families has come the necessity to
reevaluate our former parenting
roles. When he initially thinks
about it, the father may fear the
added work and a sense of discom-
fort with a nurturing role. Often
the father feels unprepared to
assume a new role. However,
upon further analysis, he thinks
about how nice it would be to
share his children's growing
years, to see them take their first
steps, go off to school for the first
time and to be an important viable
part of the process. How wonder-
ful it would be to make a valuable
contribution to each others' lives.
"Forget it," you say with
resolve. "It's not possible. I have
to work. Someone has to earn
money. I don't know anything
about kids, diapers, feeding or
nurturing. That's for a mother to
do. Besides, what would my
friends, father or co-workers
think if they saw me wheeling a
baby carriage? It was a stupid idea
Was it? Is it? Didn't you ever
wish that your own father had had
the time to play ball with you,
read you a story, sit and talk to
only you, or just show he cared in
a way you would have understood
as a child. Isn't your father more
nurturing to his grandchildren
than he was to his own children?
Too bad he deprived himself of all
those joys years ago! Why should
More and more fathers are tak-
ing the challenge, are asserting
themselves as fathers, are ex-
periencing the joys and sorrows of
life in a very real way with their
children. Most feel that the
rewards far outway the effort.
Studies have shown that dual
parental involvement generally
improves a child's sense of self
and strengthens family bonds.
Jewish Family Service can help
you learn to enjoy being an effec-
tive father. We have developed a
unique program aimed at teaching
fathers how to develop a positive
relationship with their children
through positive communications.
Workshops of this nature can be
tailored to all stages of fathering.
Presentations are available at
nominal cost to men's clubs and
other organizations. For more in-
formation call Jewish Family Ser-
vice in Hollywood at 966-0956 and
ask for our Family Life Education

filiated with the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauderdale,

A $27 Billion Bargain

Notebook. Wolf Blitzer. Oxford

Reviewed by Zel Levin
Any writer who can convincing-
ly demonstrate that an expen-
diture of $27 billion (that's
BILLION) is a "metziah" a
bargain has indeed turned out a
book deserving of the most
meticulous reading, especially
since this is fact and not fiction.
That's exactly what Reporter-
turned-Author Wolf Blitzer has
done in this incisive look at the
The Jews of Samarkand:
home to 103,000
Jews, a large
number living in
the capital of
remainder in the
cities and small
fered under the various despots and dynasties
that ruled the area and its prized trade routes.
Local legend has it that Bukhara, a city 130
miles to the west, is the biblical Habor, where the
10 tribes of Israel were exiled.
Recently, however, many local Jews have voic-
ed a different feeling of banishment, along with a
certain bewilderment at their changing society.
As Soviet citizens the 103,000 Jews in this
republic a mixed lot of old Sephardic com-
munities and Ashkenazim sent here from Euro-
pean republics during the 1940s are officially
not permitted to emigrate.
This prospect is doubly depressing, since many
of the Jews have a specific destination in mind.
While other Soviet Jews display an almost in-
satiable curiosity about the West in general and
the United States in particular, the first question
asked visitors here almost always concerns
To local Jews, Israel has come to have an
allegoric fascination, fed by accounts of the few
Westerners who bother to seek out the scattered
Jewish quarters in Central Asian cities with con-
fusing pathways and crowded bazaars.
"You tell us about Israel. Are the people there
happy?" asks a rug weaver named Ibraim, in Rus-
sian, sipping jasmine tea in his small apartment.
"You know, many of our young men went there
when they could, about 10 years ago. I have a
nephew there, but I have not heard from him in
"The life here is not too bad, and we get along
with our Moslem neighbors," says a friend wear-
ing a blue-and-white striped- robe. "But we are
too few here. We wish for more of our own."
A long silence follows when they are asked
whether they have applied to emigrate.
"I thought about this," Ibraim finally admits,
picking at a small turquoise rug on his loom. "But
I am too old and I would lose too much."
Uzbekistan's Jews are surrounded by a popula-
tion of Sunni Moslems that in recent years has ac-
counted for a baby boom of sorts in this'republic.
The effort has been supported by Soviet
authorities, who award women the title of
Mother Heroine after the birth of a 10th child,
with a medal and certificate to prove it.
In Uzbekistan, according to 1983 government
figures, there were 35.3 births per 1,000 citizens
- a birth rate second only to that of neighboring
Tadjikistan among the 15 Soviet republics.
"Oh, yes, the Moslems have very large families,
many more than us," says a metal worker, carv-
ing a floral pattern on a brass plate on Charaga
Street. Pointing to a mosque down the road, he
smiles, "We are, of course, all equal here. We
have our peace and our bread. But I would like to
see something different more of us."
Outpost of Faith In Asia
When the Russian empire first rode into Cen-
tral Asia in the 19th century, most of the Jews
were liberated from local emirs' fiefdoms,
granted judicial equality and even the right to ac-
quire real estate.
The Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 bolstered
Uzbekistan's Zionist movement, and many of the
area's Jews made arduous treks to Palestine. A
Jewish-Bukharan branch of the Communist Par-
ty was formed, which lobbied for the right to
maintain synagogues and Hebrew schools.
But Jewish elements in the Russian Communist
Party, intent on promoting an officially atheist
state, lobbied against maintaining religious tradi-
tions. By the Stalin era in the 1930s, members of
the yevsektsia, the Jewish sections of the pro-
paganda machinery, had succeeded in eliminating
many public religious observances.
However, the Jews and Moslems persisted, and
today both appear freer to worship here than in
the Soviet Union's European cities. But there
still is an underlying fear evident to a visitor.
Militiamen are stationed in the Jewish quarters;
many Jews have become informers for the secret
"I am careful with who I talk to," says Amu, a
bearded 24-year-old in the Samarkand
synagogue. "There are many things I could tell
you about the police, about this city. But I really
don't trust anyone outside the family."
Discussing the status of Jews with local
authorities brings assurances about the separa-
tion of church and state and about religious
"Your aid from America gets to these people,"
says a government spokesman. "But the govern-
ment has little to do with religious affairs. These
people can pray, and there are no problems."
The official maintains that the police are out-
side synagogues and Jewish homes at the request
of the Jews themselves.
In a community where individual expression is,
at best, subdued and where collective action is
unheard of, a visitor is left with the impression of
people desiring more but unable to find a suitable
way to express themselves.
"Each year on Yom Kippur we ask for
forgiveness," says Amu. "And we always say
'Next year in Jerusalem.' But we really cannot
expect things to change here. The best thing now
is to hope."
A woman standing in a doorway in the old town
at dusk holds up a small medallion imprinted with
a Star of David.
"You can't say where this came from," she
says, "but see, we make such things."
In her small, lighted house, several old men
chew pistachio nuts and drink bubbly sweet wine
while talking about the day's affairs. They raise
glasses and recite a blessing.
Down the street, as the moon peers over the
brick houses and their flat aluminum roofs,
prayers begin again in the synagogue.
"Hear, O Israel," the men chant. "The Lord is
our God. The Lord is one."
sometimes puzzling, always com-
plicated relations between the
United States and Israel.
Calling on an almost unique
frame of reference developed in
his many years as the highly
respected Washington correspon-
dent for the Jerusalem Post,
Blitzer has written an infor-
mative, useful book that should be
studied and appreciated by both
Jews and non-Jews.
It is no exaggeration to classify
Between Washington and
Jerusalem as the definitive book
on a subject that all too often has
been handled cavalierly by an un-
caring, uninformed corps of
writers. It is written as a good
reporter should write objective-
ly and devoid of sensationalism. It
encompasses the factors that have
tied Israel to this country since its
painful birth in 1948.
Blitzer describes not only what
happened but why. He takes us
behind the scenes in the trying
periods prior to Israel's major
wars. We're right there as he in-
terviews presidents and con-
gressmen, cabinet members and
visiting statesmen. He explains
without being didactic.
But even as he goes from topic
to topic, from Presidents Truman
through Reagan, from peace plans
to the perplexing Palestinian
situation, from arms deals to con-
gressional debates, he makes clear
that the pervasive theme affecting
virtually every action of the
United States vis-a-vis Israel is
how to maintain strong ties with
Israel while at the same time
developing equally strong rela-
tions with the oil-rich Arab states.
And while the author does not say
so in so many words, the wonder
of it all is the fact that Uncle Sam
has not slipped off the tightrope
more often than he has.
Names that have been in the na-
tional and international news for
decades are interwoven in this
timely report and while Blitzer
reaffirms the friendly attitude of
such officials as the late Senators
Henry Jackson and Hubert H.
Humphrey and the questionable
tactics of the Arab-leaning State
Department, he commendably
avoids labeling major figures as
"good" or "bad," but rather
shows both sides of human nature.
For example, President
Reagan. His relations to Israel,
says Blitzer, "are defined by con-
tradiction ... his gut instincts are
extremely pro-Israel and he has
demonstrated he is prepared to
risk upsetting the Arabs." Yet,
there was Bitburg and even
earlier, a reneging of his 1980
campaign promise when, despite
vowing no betrayal of old friends
and allies, he pushed for the sale
of AWACs to Saudi Arabia, he
suspended arms delivery to Israel,
and he invoked the specter of dual
loyalty of American Jews.
Kissinger is equally com-
plicated. He, too, was willing to
provide arms to Arabs but he
unalterably opposed an indepen-
dent Palestine state on the West
Bank and Gaza.
And yes that $27 billion dollar
bargain! That's how much money
in loans and grants the United
States has given Israel since 1948.
But balance that figure with the
estimated $50 billion to $80 billion
that the United States spends AN-
NUALLY to support NATO in
Western Europe'. Balance that
with the fact that while the United
States must maintain 300,000
troops in Western Europe and
150,000 troops in the Far East, it
has only a handful of advisors in
the Middle East where it relies on
the strong Israeli armed forces.
