American Jewish Congress
There are several answers to Edwin Black's attack on
AJCongress for filing a lawsuit against Chicago's municipal
creche and menorah at Christmas time. In the first place, it is not
at all clear that a lawsuit brought in the spring would be con-
sidered in the federal courts. Problems of standing, ripeness and
mootness would bedevil any such lawsuit. A judge not anxious for
controversy and they are not uncommon could, and probably
would invoke those doctrines to avoid deciding a creche case
brought in the spring.
Second, Black's claim that such suits invite anti-Semitism is
belied by the evidence. He concedes that the American Civil
Liberties Union suit in St. Charles, Illinois, has not generated
anti-Semitism, despite the small size of its Jewish community. We
have seen no evidence of anti-Semitism in Chicago. And it is not a
common reaction elsewhere either. Most particularly, Black of-
fers no evidence that there is a marginal increase in anti-
Semitism because of the filing of a lawsuit at Christmas, as oppos-
ed to the very fact that such suits are filed at all. School prayer
cases are inevitably controversial, sometimes generate anti-
Semitism, and are not brought at Christmas. Cases against other
religious symbols, not related to a particular holiday, also stir
strong feelings. And Black never explains why a lawsuit brought
jointly against a creche and a menorah as was the case with the
lawsuit he is discussing should create anti-Semitism in the first
Third, while many people disagree with the philosophy of chur-
ch/state separation which underlies "creche" (or menorah) suits,
and many disagree sharply, only a few from the fringe engage in
anti-Semitic activity. It ill-behooves the Jewish community to be
deterred from an effective course of action in order to avoid the
ravings of that lunatic fringe.
Fourth, quoting an official of the Anti-Defamation League,
Black argues that creches are not primarily a constitutional issue
but rather an insider-outsider issue a problem, he argues, for
community relations, not litigation. In this Black is flat out
wrong, because the constitutional problem arises precisely
because a creche sets up an insider/outsider dichotomy. Justice
O'Connor has identified the constitutional voice of governmental
endorsement of religion in the fact that such endorsement "sends
a message to nonadherents that they are outsiders, not full
members of the political community, and an accompanying
message to adherents that they are insiders, favored members of
the political community."
AJCongress is not insensitive to the concerns Black raises. We
have repeatedly urged Jewish communities to proceed carefully
when dealing with religious symbols at the holiday season. Those
views are stated in a variety of places, including our widely
distributed pamphlet "Christmas/Chanukah: A Community
Guide." Those views shaped our response to a variety of incidents
this year involving public Christmas observances, including those
in the public schools. What is not acceptable is a total ban on
Christmas season litigation.
Finally, since practically every reason Black gives in support of
a ban on creche litigation at Christmas time is applicable to any
and all church/state litigation, one must ask whether his objection
is to the time of the Chicago lawsuit or the fact that it was
brought at all. RONALD G. COHN
American Jewish Congress
Approximately 10 to 15 percent of Jewish children under 18
live in one-parent households. About 10,000 of those are "latch-
key" children who spend several hours a day alone and
Too often single parent families cannot afford the price of
Jewish education or affiliation with the Jewish recreational in-
stitutions that could fill the latch-key child's empty hours with the
warmth of Jewish belonging and Jewish learning.
In addition 50-60 percent of mothers with children under six
now work including both single-parent and traditional families.
That means approximately 50,000 Jewish children require day-
care services but day-care services under Jewish auspices are
limited. Over 80 percent of Jewish children in day-care programs
are in non-Jewish settings during these impressionable years.
No services are more critical to the future of the Jewish com-
munity than services to children. We need:
* Scholarships and loans for Jewish education
* Aid for participation in Jewish centers, Ys and other
* Jewish day-care
* Transportation to Jewish activities
* Socialization and counseling programs for children
Jews have always been the first to respond to the needs of
children in far-off countries, children of different cultures and
religions. How can we not respond to the child around the corner
who is of our own? Your Federation/UJA gift is the answer. Give
generously to the '86 campaign.

By JAMES D. DAVIS
International leaders of the Red
Cross are being targeted by a
pressure group fighting for
Magen David Adorn, Israel's
disaster relief body.
"Shameful and outrageous" are
among the terms used by Opera-
tion Recognition, the pressure
group, to describe the Israeli
organization's exclusion from
membership in the International
Committee of the Red Cross. The
ICRC is the world alliance of 137
organizations that care for those
wounded in war as well as those
injured in disasters.
Rabbi Rubin R. Dobin of Miami
Beach, international chairman for
Operation Reconciliation, accuses
the ICRC of giving in to pressures
to keep the Israeli group out. He
has promised counter-pressures,
ranging from a "white paper" to
legal hearings to congressional
"Magen David Adorn meets all
the criteria for membership ex-
cept one: We use the Red Star of
David, which is not a recognized
symbol," Dobin complains. "But
the only approved symbols are the
Red Cross of Christianity and the
Red Crescent of Islam. We can't
use a symbol of another religion."
Red Cross officials disagree that
their emblem is a religious
"This discrimination and
bigotry against Israel casts an un-
fortunate shadow on the much-
acclaimed humanitarianism and
universality of the world Red
Cross ideal," Dobin says.
But a Red Cross official calls the
Magen David Adorn, translated as
the Red Shield of David, a
"political sign rather than a
"The Red Cross is fixed in peo-
ple's minds as a protective sym-
bol, and so is the Red Crescent in
Moslem countries," says Martin
Perret, associate for international
services with the American Red
Cross. "But the Magen David
Adorn is only good inside Israel. In
a conflict in the Middle East, the
other side would still shoot."
Mages David Adorn so far has
performed up to par with the
member societies, Red Cross of-
ficials say. It has aided not only
Israelis but non-Jews caught in
war, especially during the occupa-
tion of Lebanon from 1982 to
The group gave so much blood
to the Christian-oriented South
Lebanon Army that its late leader
once quipped that his troops had
"Jewish blood in their veins."
Magen David Adorn has built up a
network of support committees in
50 nations, including Christian
Arabs as well as Jews, but so far
has not been able to crack the
membership barrier of the Inter-
As a result, Dobin says, Magen
David members have no direct ac-
cess to the ICRC's list of refugees
and prisoners of war. The Israelis
also cannot attend technical
seminars, for instance on blood
typing, except as observers, he
Some of the information can
still be had through a handful of
Red Cross groups that do
recognize Magen David Adorn, in-
cluding those in America, Nor-
way, Great Britain, Brazil and
Mexico. "But those are roun-
dabout means," Dobin says.
"Why shouldn't we get informa-
tion directly especially on
Soviet Jewry, which is very im-
portant to us?"
Meanwhile, societies from
Islamic nations such as Egypt and
Turkey have become members.
When Moslems said they could not
accept a cross as an emblem, the
International Committee approv-
ed the Red Cresent for them.
Also approved was the Red Lion
and Sun, a national symbol of Iran
under the shah. When his regime
was overturned in 1979 by
Ayatolah Ruholla Khomeini, the
nation discarded that emblem in
favor of the crescent.
Perret of the American Red
Cross insists that the type of
cross, red on white background, is
neither religious nor political; it is
a reversed version of the flag of
Switzerland, which has a white
cross on a red background. The
symbol was adopted to honor its
Swiss founder, philanthropist
Jean Henri Dunan.
As Evidence that the Red Cross
is not a religious symbol, Perret
points out that the Islamic coun-
tries of Mali and Niger have Red
Cross societies. But he agrees that
the International Committee
made a mistake in approving the
Red Lion and Sun.
Perret, speaking from
Washington, D.C., says a working
group spent a decade studying
whether the Star of David or a
similar emblem could gain wide
recognition. No one symbol was
ever found that would be accep-
table both to the Jewish organiza-
tion and other ICRC affiliates.
"It's hard to get 137 countries
to accept any one point of view, as
you can see from the United Na-
tions," Perret says.
Undeterred, Dobin is lining up
allies including U.S. Sen. Paula
Hawkins, R., Fla., and
Christopher Dodd, D., Conn., his
national co-chairmen for
several activities in advance of the
ICRC's quadrennial conference in
Geneva, Switzerland, this coming
In March, Dobin and the

managers from other nations.
Also in the spring, he plans to hold
a meeting on the topic at the
American University Law School
in Washingotn, D.C. He hopes to
get ICRC representatives to pre-
sent their side there.

Lots of singles
The American Jewish Committee has reported that approx-
imately one-fifth of adult American Jews have never married, and
that there are 200,000 to 300,000 Jewish singles in the New York
metropolitan area alone.
These statistics do not bode well for the vitality of the Jewish
community, AJC observes, because prolonged bachelorhood
postpones and may reduce child bearing, and singles are much
less active in Jewish affairs than are married couples.

CAMPAIGN '86 Federation/United Jewish Appeal
Ethiopian Jewish Absorption Proceeding Smoothly;
Many About to Gain Own Homes and Jobs
By GERALD S. NAGEL
UJA Watch Dealt Editor
Chaim Aron, chairman of the
Jewish Agency's Immigration and
Absorption Department, said that
the absorption of Ethiopian Jews
is entering its second stage, which
will result in the new immigrants
gaining their own apartments and
jobs. He said the stage would take
at least a year, probably more.
"I am pleased to report that the
absorption process for Ethiopian
Jews has been proceeding
smoothly," said Aron.
"Within six months, 700
families will complete the process
at absorption 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 continue to enter
Youth Aliyah Villages, where
2,100 are already enrolled, and
others would enter Israeli univer-
sities where 62 Ethiopian Jews
Aron said that Ethiopian Jewish
men are learning diamond cutting
and polishing, high-technology
and computer 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 prepar-
ing Ethiopian Jews for tomor-
row's jobs today and, in conjunc-
tion with the ministry of Labor, to
helping them find those jobs
He said the second stage
depended on the new immigrant's
understanding of Israeli society
and ability to have a job and an
apartment 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 factors,
Israelis live near where they
work. He said Ethiopian Jews
want to be the ones to choose their
own apartments and make other
decisions. "They have been learn-
ing very well the ways of the
Israelis," he laughed.
Aron said the agency was work-
ing to reconcile the tradition of
Ethiopian women not working
outside the home with the reality
that most Israeli families depend
on two incomes.
He noted that Ethiopian Jews
arrived as individuals rather than
in full family units and said one-
parent families' have special pro-
blems. "We are giving special at-
tention to these families," Aron
said, "and in stage two we will
seek among other things to obtain
housing for them near relatives
and close friends."
In the end, he said, Ethiopian
Jews will settle across Israel, bas-
ed on where jobs are available.
Ethiopian Jews are registered
in 30 of the agency's 70 absorp-
tion centers, generally with im-
migrants from other countries.
Aron said that despite the hard-
ships of the Israeli economy,
which has included high inflation,
frequent shekel devaluations,
sharp reductions in basic com-
modity subsidies and record
unemployment of over 100.000,
"in no instance have economic
problems interfered with the ab-
sorption of Ethiopian Jews." In

And, the Ethiopian Jews know
and appreciate it."

The Soviet Union wanted this
man so much that the government
refused him the right to seek a
new home in freedom.
Yet after many obstacles and
through constant effort he was
able to leave Russia to seek a new
life in Israel where he was truly
needed truly wanted.
Soviet Jews have found a warm
welcome in Israel and in South
Florida. In both places they have
found hands reaching out, ready
to help with housing, language
skills, and employment.
Your funds bought his freedom

Women's Division $1,000 Luncheon a Huge Success
The Women's Division of the
Jewish Federation held a highly
successful Federation/UJA cam-
paign luncheon recently for
women who make a minimum
commitment of $1,000 to the
Women's Division campaign.
Over 75 women gathered at
Brooks Restaurant for an elegant
luncheon followed by a most infor-
mative lecture by Joyce Starr, a
Middle East Foreign Affairs ex-
pert. Starr presented an overview
of the Middle East situation. "In
my opinion, Israel and Syria will
be engaged in war in the not so
distant future," she stated.
Highlighting her speech was the
advancement of Israel and the
Israeli society in various fields
such as space and the production
of vital machinery.
Sheila Grenitz and Lois Polish
praised their hardworking com-
mittee for doing such a wonderful
job. Serving on the committee
were Rita Bernstein, Pola Brod-

Ruth Eppy, Barbara Goldstein,
Rita Kanev, Terri Novick, Marcia

According to Rita Bernstein,
chairperson of the Women's Divi-
sion campaign at Woodmont, over
110 women, pledging a minimum
of $100 to Federation/UJA,
played in a golf and tennis tourna-
ment on Feb. 13. "We are deeply
gratified by the outstanding tur-
nout for this initial event," she
stated. "All the women were so
enthusiastic and eager to exhibit
their skills for a good cause."
Following the tournament was a
luncheon at the Woodmont Coun-
try Club. Marilyn Manning, tennis
chairperson, gave her personal ac-
counts of what it was like
volunteering in the Israel Army.

"All the tournaments in the
communities were very suc-
cessful," stated Hilda Leibo,
"Play a Day for UJA," chairper-
son. "The support and commit-
ment the women showed for the
Women's Division Federa-
tion/UJA campaign was wonder-
ful," she added.
TEL AVTV The Ministerial Economic Committee decided to
keep all 650 employees of the financially ailing Haifa Shipyards on
the payroll pending the report of a special committee of experts
on plans to re-organize the government-owned shipbuilding and
repair facility on Haifa Bay and make it economically viable.
JERUSALEM Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir said there
are no differences in the coalition government on the peace pro-
cess. "While we may differ on tactics, there is full agreement on
the goal and principle of peace," he told the opening of the eighth
plenary assembly of the World Jewish Congress. "The problem is
not between Labor and the Likud, but between us and Egypt, and
us and Jordan."
ISRAEL An Israeli official said that fewer people im-
migrated to Israel in 1985 than in any previous year in its history;
he blamed much of the decline on the country's ailing economy. In
1985, 11,298 immigrants arrived in Israel, down 41 percent from
19,230 in 1984.
JERUSALEM Israel and Ivory Coast announced the
resumption of full diplomatic relations in a joint statement releas-
ed simultaneously here and in Abidjan, the Ivorian capital.

WASHINGTON Senate con-
servatives have found a new tactic
in their effort to try to prevent
ratification of the United Nations
Genocide Convention, a claim that
it will not only harm the United
States but also Israel. This
became clear when Sens. Jesse
Helms (R., N.C.) and Chic Hecht
(R., Nev.) used this argument Dec.
5 to prevent unanimous consent to
bring up Helms' own amendments
to the treaty. Helms said, "There
are Jewish citizens who previously
strongly supported this treaty
who now realize that Israel will be
most likely the first nation to be
victimized by it." Helms had made
this argument before. But it came
as a surprise when" he was sup-
ported by Hecht, who is Jewish,
since the Jewish community has
long called for ratification of the
Convention which was signed in
1949 in the wake of the Holocaust.

Sunday, April 6, is the date.
Sunrise Musical Theatre is the
place. JCC cordially invites
everyone to come along;, be enter-
tained royally, and at the same
time lend support to the
Center's Scholarship Fund. The
glamorous Lainie Kazan opens the
show and here's a little
background on its star performer,
famous comedian and actor .
he "relaxes" by regularly touring
the country appearing at hun-
dreds of colleges, universities,
nightclubs and theatres, or in
Atlantic City performing his
brilliant comedy and commentary
for sold out houses.
Klein is married to Brenda
My son in show business? No
way, his father, a parlor comedian
from the Bronx, must have said
some 20 years ago. So, Robert
Klein, after graduating from
DeWitt Clinton High entered
Alfred University as a pre-med
student. There he joined the col-
lege drama group for after class
diversion where he caught the ac-
ting bug for real. After
graduating with a BA in Political
Science and History he went to
Yale's Drama School. He took
several jobs in summer stock and
New York nite spots. Klein then
auditioned for Chicago's famous
improvisational theatre troupe
called "Second City." The year
was 1965 and he was on his way.
"I learned everything there,"
he says. "Discipline, improvisa-
tion, working up a comedy
routine. The experience matured
me as a performer."
Since then Klein has appeared
in numerous Broadway Shows
such as "Apple Tree," "Morning
Noon and Night," "New Faces"
and "They're Playing Our Song."
On TV he is a regular guest on
the Johnny Carson show, also
hosting the show many times. He
is a familiar personality on prac-
tically every talk show in-
cluding the David Letterman's
and Merv Griffin's shows.
In the movies, Klein's roles in-
clude "Hooper," with Burt
Reynolds, "The Owl and the

were quick to express surprise
over a report in the London-based
Jane's Defense Weekly that Syrian
forces were poised to attack Israel
on the Golan Heights. Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin stressed
that contrary to Jane's report,
which was headlined in the Israeli
media, there has been no change
in the deployment of Syrian forces
facing the Golan Heights. Officials
admitted that there has been an
escalation of tension in recent

NEW YORK The Senate
Judiciary Committee will
schedule, probably next February,
hearing on the situation involving
the arrest and prosecution of rab-
bis protesting the treatment of
Soviet Jews outside the Soviet
Embassy in Washington. Accor-
ding to Rabbi Allan Meyerowitz,
Soviet Jewry chairman of the
Rabbinical Assembly, Sen. Steven
Symms (R., Idaho), a committee
member, has informed Edwin
Meese, the attorney general, of
the committee's intentions to
review the arrests and the District
of Columbia statute prohibiting
demonstrations within 500 feet of
the Embassy. Five rabbis conclud-
ed serving 12 days of a 15-day
sentence imposed for
demonstrating within 500 feet of
the Embassy. The five rabbis
chose to do time rather than ac-
cept a suspended sentence, proba-
tion and a fine as did the 37 other
rabbis and Lutheran minister,
who were tried and convicted of
the same offense. (JTA)

SOUTH FLORIDA'S economy rebounded in the second half of
1985, according to Professional Bancorp of Coral Gables. The
company said its inflation-adjusted gauge of business conditions
for Broward, Palm Beach and Dade counties was 143.5 last April
but rose to a record 152.1 by November.
THE GREAT Wall of Fort Lauderdale began to rise from the
asphalt of State Road AIA, a 660,000 pound, gray concrete
testimony of the city's determination to control spring break. The
"vehicle separation," as it is officially known, is the most visible
of the changes designed to control the expected 350,000 visitors
to the city's most famous beach.
FLORIDA POWER & Light Co. expects to make its first re-
fund in eight years, pending approval next month by the state
Public Service Commission. The refunds, about $8 for average
residential users, result from greater than anticipated use of elec-
tricity during 1985.
IMPROVING TEACHERS' salaries, upgrading the academic
performance of elementary school students and preventing
dropouts are the top three goals outlined by Education Commis-
sioner Ralph Turlington in his annual report on public schools.
THE 1986 Legislature, scheduled to, begin its annual 60-day
session on April 8, is expected to address a number of important
issues which surfaced last year, while also facing a $50 million
projected shortfall in state revenue compounded under the
burden of cutbacks resulting from the Gramm-Rudman Act.

WASHINGTON Against the
background of recent tensions
over alleged Israeli spying ac-
tivities in the United States, a pro-
Arab lobbying group is boosting
its long-standing efforts to revive
an old espionage case against a
senior member of the Department
of Defense. A Justice Department
investigation was undertaken in
1978 to explore the possibility of
espionage charges against Steven
Bryen, then a senior aide to the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, after former director of
the National Association of Arab
Americans (NAAA), Michael
Saba, claimed he overheard Bryen
offer secret Pentagon documents
to an Israeli Embassy official at a
Washington hotel. The investiga-
tion was dropped two years later
after the Justice Department
reported that it had failed to find
conclusive evidence of espionage
JERUSALEM Israel's most
ambitious hydro-electric project,
the Mediterranean-Dead Sea
Canal which fell victim to the
country's economic crisis a year
ago has been declared officially
dead. The canal company's Board
of Directors decided to terminate
the enterprise and dismiss its
employees. The disposal of the
$100 million in seed money raised
by the sale of Israel Bonds in the
U.S. and elsewhere remains
unclear. In winding up the pro-
ject, the Board blamed Energy
Minister Moshe Shahal for its
demise and urged the SW Com-
ptroller to investigate the
developments which forced the
closure. Uri Wirzburger, director
of the canal company, said in a
statement that it was impossible
to run a government company
without the support of the respon-
sible Minister. (JTA)
CAIRO An Egyptian border
policeman who killed seven Israeli
tourists, four of them children,
was found dead in his cell. He had

Suliman Khater, that the trial
should have taken place in a
civilian court and upheld the
sentence. The policeman had
become something of a cause
