Federation-The Pursuit of Jewish Excellence
Harold L. Oshry Elected President For North Broward Jewry
Before a gathering of
more than 300 members,
Tamarac business philan-
thropist, entrepreneur, and
Woodlands Country Club
community leader, Harold
L. Oshry, was elected the
sixteenth president of the
Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale, at
the Federation's Annual
Meeting and Installation
last night, Thursday, May
19. Chairing the meeting
were Richard Finkelstein
and Lois Polish.
The occasion, of special
significance to the North
Broward County Jewish
community, held in the
Harry Levin Gymnasium, at
the Soref Jewish Communi-
ty Center, Perlman Family
Campus, in Plantation, was
the scene of the changing of
the guard, when president
Sheldon S. Polish, Fort
Lauderdale certified public
accountant, turned the
gavel over to the 1988-'89
head of the Board.
Completing his term,
which included among other
highlights, the finalization
of government approval for
the HUD 202 elderly hous-
ing complex in West
Sunrise, the completion of
the David Posnack Hebrew
Day School building on the
Perlman Campus and the
opening of the Federation
Coral Springs Satellite Of-
fice and Activity Center in
North Broward, Polish
presented his 'State of the
Federation' message to the
group of concerned and in-
volved constituents.
In accepting his new posi-
tion as the chief executive
officer of the Jewish com-
munity's major central
organization, Oshry, along
with his cadre of cabinet of
ficers and the board of
directors, will continue the
ongoing high quality of ex-
cellent services of the agen-
cies and beneficiaries in the
fields of social welfare and
people-oriented programs.
He placed special em-
phasis on the need to strive
for excellence and quality
for the elderly, families,
children, and people with
special needs.
One of Oshry's first of-
ficial duties was the presen-
tation of the Outgoing
President's award to Polish.
Among the evening's
reports were the Women's

Troubled Times in Israel
Editor'i Note: The following is from Philip Goldstein of Fort
Lauderdale who relates the events of the present and the past.
Israel is facing troubled times today. These troubles bring back
memories of an earlier period. Listen to this story told by a sabra,
during our recent Elderhostel trip to Israel...
One very nice facet of our recent Elderhostel experience was
Family Hospitality Night. Our coordinator made arrangements
for those of us who wanted to participate, to visit an Israeli home.
Marge and I were packed off by taxi to the home of a selected
family. We came, flowers in hand, to spend a couple of hours in
discussion over coffee and home-baked cake.
In Jerusalem we visited the home of Sarah H. Sarah is a widow
of two years, whose husband had been a career military man. Dur-
ing his last years he had served as chief of security at the Knesset.
We talked of many things like politics, living conditions in Israel,
but one story of Sarah's early childhood sticks in my mind.
Her family and a couple of other Jewish families lived in an
Arab village. Sarah's father was a doctor who ministered to both
Arabs and Jews of the village. Evidently life was quite comfor-
table for them. They were able to employ a young Arab girl to
take care of Sarah during the day when her parents were busy.
Sarah was about four years old when this tale begins. One day
the Arab girl revealed to the doctor that her brother and his
friends were planning to slaughter all the Jews of the village. The
year was 1929, a year of Arab unrest. Many Jewish settlers were
massacred during uprisings in other villages. So the warning was
to be taken seriously.
Under the doctor's direction, the Jews collected whatever arms
they could and barricaded themselves in a large stone bam. That
night the Arabs pillaged and burned all the Jewish homes. But
they could not get at the Jews holed up in the barn. Towards mor-
ning the Arabs called out to the doctor. They pleaded with him to
come out to attend to a wounded comrade. The doctor heeded
their plea and came out. The Arabs promptly killed him.
Next morning a couple of British lories arrived to evacuate the
survivors to a Jewish settlement nearby. Sarah developed a
strong hatred for Arabs. Who can blame her? They had killed her
father! Still, during the years that passed this hatred was
somewhat tempered. She told us that she still does not trust
Arabs, but she is less worried about them than she is about the
ultra-religious Jews in Israel. She predicted that someday the
ultra-orthodox will cause Israel to be torn apart.
One slight sidelight The Arab girl who warned Sarah's
father of the impending pogrom was punished for her indiscretion
by her brother and his friends. They buried her up to her neck for
a period of 24 hours to give her time to reflect on her traitorous
behavior. At least that is the way Sarah H. finished her story.
Isn't it strange that no country cried out then against the
atrocities faced by the Jews? Isn't it strange that nowhere did the
community of nations rise up in indignation to condemn the ac-
tions of the Arabs against the Jewish settlers?
Who can explain it? Who can tell me why? Are things so dif-
ferent today?
Senator Graham Alarmed
by Synagogue Desecration
Alarmed by desecration of synagogues in South Florida,
Senator Bob Graham has co-sponsored the Hate Crimes Statistics
"I am anxious to do whatever I can to be helpful in the collec-
tion of data and annual reporting of hate crimes to prevent future
incidents," Graham told Senator Howard Metzenbaum (D., Ohio),
prime sponsor of the Hate Crimes Statistics Act.
Several synagogues have been defaced recently in South
Florida, prompting community leaders to sponsor an ecumenical
meeting at Temple B'nai Torah in Boca Raton recently.
Jewish and Christian religious leaders expressed outrage that
places of worship had been desecrated and called for a united ef-
fort against hate crimes.

SUMMIT IV has been announc-
ed, and President Ronald Reagan
will meet again with Soviet
General Secretary Mikhail Gor-
bachev, this time in Moscow, from
May 29 to June 3. The Moscow
Summit will be a major world
event, marking the first visit of an
American President to Moscow in
14 years.
Once again, we must focus our
resources and energy to make cer-
tain that the issue of Soviet Jewry
is prominently raised at the Sum-
mit and that steps are taken
toward normalizing the emigra-
tion process.
The implementation of Gor-
bachev's policy of "glasnost" has
not produced significant or fun-
damental changes for Soviet
Jewry. Although there has been
an increase in emigration and
some gestures permitting minimal
Jewish cultural and religious ex-
pression, other measures indicate
a continuation of severe restric-
tions on emigration and on Jewish
life in the Soviet Union. There are
also troubling signs that anti-
Semitism may be increasing in the
Soviet Union as a by-product of
"glasnost." The anti-Semitism of
such ultranationalist Russian
groups like 'Pamyat" have found
a receptive audience in the Soviet
At the Summit in Washington
this past December, it was
acknowledged by both sides that
human rights is part of the Sum-
mit agenda. But sharp differences
remain, and Soviet leader Gor-
bachev continues to assert public-
ly a policy of intransigence with
regard to Soviet Jews.
The Mobilization of nearly
250,000 Americans in Washington
on the eve of the December 1987
Washington Summit was the
largest demonstration ever of con-
cern for the plight of Soviet Jews.
We must continue to reinforce
and build on that momentum. The
upcoming Summit in Moscow will
thus present us with another uni-
que challenge and opportunity to
bring the issue of Soviet Jewry to
the attention of the general
public, the media, Congress and
the Administration so as to insure
that the issue will be high on the
agenda of the two superpowers.
A major new campaign to focus
world attention on the plight of
Soviet Jewry prior to and during
the May 29-June 3 Moscow Sum-
mit has been planned. Major com-
ponents of the program include:
A Summit Action Day for
Soviet Jewry in Washington, D.C.
on May 3 with the participation of
Soviet Jewry activists, civic,
political and religious leaders and
others representing national
organizations, local federations
and community relations councils.
The Summit Action Day will in-
clude briefings at the State
Department and visits with
members of Congress, officials of
non-governmental organizations,
and envoys of the Helsinki Ac-
cords signatory nations. Its pur-
pose is to impress upon Congres-
sional representatives and Ad-
ministration officials the urgent
need to give human rights and
Jewish emigration the highest
priority during Summit IV.
A leadership delegation to
Helsinki. President Reagan is ex-
pected to deliver a major state-
ment on human rights during a
stop-over in Helsinki on May
26-29, prior to his summit meeting
with General Secretary Gor-
bachev in Moscow. A National
Conference on Soviet Jewry
delegation composed of Jewish
leaders from throughout the
United States, representatives
from European Jewish com-
munities and former refuseniks
now living in Israel will travel to
Helsinki in a show of support for
the President's human rights
It is expected that Soviet Jews
will also demonstrate in Moscow
to express their deep desire to go
to Israel to be reunited with fami-
ly and to practice Jewish tradi-
tions in the Soviet Union free
from harassment and persecution.
An international advertising
campaign and other public pro-
nouncements highlighting the
cause of Soviet Jewry.
Public activities, demonstra-
tions and other events in support
of Soviet Jewry in local com-
munities during the Moscow Sum-
mit. We urge you to be active and
to participate.

Even before applying for exit visas in 1983, Aleksey and wife
Natasha Ratner were well-known among Moscow refuseniks as
Hebrew teachers. A cellist, Aleksey, 28, was unable to find pro-
fessional work after applying to join his father and sister in Israel.
In March 1986, he was arrested at the airport in Tbilisi on his way
home to Moscow, on the trumped-up charge of drug possession.
The judge at his trial, citing previous good character, said he
woud sentence Aleksey to "only" three years in a labor camp. He
is still serving his sentence.

Bringing Our "Twinned" Community the Gift of Life...
Project Renewal Campaign Provides Hope and Dignity
The Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale has
continued its active support of
Project Renewal in Israel. To
date the '88 gifts to the Protect
Renewal Campaign total close
to $235,000.
The three contiguous
neighborhoods of Kaplan,
Yoseftal, and Givat Eshkol in
Kfar Saba have been adopted
by the Federation to help im-
prove the quality of life of the
people who live there.
These residents, immigrants
from Middle Eastern coun-
tries, have been living in
economically and educationally
disadvantaged conditions as
compared to other Israelis,
and so the process is underway
to improve their situation.
Alvera Gold, Federation vice
president and Women's Divi-
sion president, who is also Pro-
ject Renewal chairperson talk-
ed about some of the recent
changes that have taken place
in these towns in Kfar Saba.
Gold related that the new
Milo Center for children has
recently opened. The entire
first floor of the center is
devoted to art workshops and
the second floor is allocated for
physical and psychological
therapy workshops. Gold
stated, "The building is a state
of the art facility and is func-
tioning quite well."
Another project that was
paid for with funds raised by
the Women's Division of the
Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale is the Home
Environment Center.
The facility is an afterschool

weren't allowed to assume

Deborah Hahn Assumes Role as President of Jewish Family Service
Jewish Federation Board
member and Women's Division
Leadership Development vice
president Deborah Hahn has been
named 1988-89 president of
Jewish Family Service of
Broward County.
Hahn will be installed as presi-
dent at the Jewish Family Service
26th annual meeting which will be
held on May 25 at the Joseph
Meyerhoff Senior Center in
Hollywood. At the meeting, which
is open to the public, the 1988
Academy Award winning short
documentary "Young At Heart"
will be shown.
Jewish Family Service is a very
important agency in this corn-
Hahn related that of all the local
beneficiary agencies of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, Jewish Family Ser-
vice is the only one which covers
all of Broward County from
Hollywood to Deerfield beach.
"This is an ongoing agency,"
said Hahn. "It cares for the com-
munity in sickness and in health,
assisting people with their pain
and sorrow and helping them cope
with the demands of today's world
through JFS Family Life Educa-
tion classes."
Jewish Family Service also has
a resettlement program to help
immigrants establish a new life in
this country. If the Soviets con-
tinue to allow more people to
leave their country, then Jewish
Family Service will be there to
assist those choosing to come to
the U.S.
As new president, Hahn will
also start urging more community
members to support Jewish Fami-
ly Service efforts by becoming
part of a group known as the
"friends of Jewish Family
Deborah Hahn is thrilled with
new position with Jewish Family
Service and looks forward to her
new role with great anticipation.
She said, "I think my activities
with the Jewish Federation and
the Hebrew Day School fit nicely
with my new role as Jewish Fami-
ly Service president. All aspects
of Jewish community life have to
be addressed."

community with JFS foster care
and adoption placement services.

goals of the agency and to make
the community more aware of

Volunteers For Israel Offers Special Summer Program.
If you've been waiting for the
right opportunity to take a trip to
Israel, Volunteers For Israel has
the program for you.
Join the Volunteers for Israel
program and spend anywhere
from two weeks to several months
in Israel working side by side with
Israel's finest military personnel.
Esther Wolfer, vice president of
education of the Women's Divi-
sion of the Jewish Federation and
a coordinator with the Volunteers
for Israel program, says that
there will be a special 23-day pro-
gram this summer leaving June 19
and all it will cost is the subsidized
airfare of $471, ages 18-26, and
$621 for those 26 and over.
The three-week program will in-
clude a round-trip airline ticket,
weekly tours throughout the coun-
try, and lectures by some of
Israel's leading professors.
Wolfer, who first went on the
Volunteers For Israel program in
the summer of 1983, is encourag-
ing all college students to go on
this summer program. She also
hopes that women whose kids are
in camp for the summer will con-
sider giving 23 days to help ease
the burden of Israeli army reser-
vists by working at a military in-
stallation in Israel.
Wolfer related, "It's physical
work, but you don't have to speak
Hebrew, you have the evenings to
do as you wish, and generally
there are at least two tours to
places of interest in the Jewish
Wolfer added, "You really feel
that you are making a contribu-

40th birthday.
The school is a member of the

The two-hour program was
kicked off with a Kabbalat Shab-

memorial service for all the Israeli
soldiers who gave their lives
defending the Jewish State over
the past 40 years. A wreath was
laid in the day school's sculpture

Seth Rosen, a Hebrew Day
School first grader, who went to
Israel last summer for his

Following the film, members of

Oscar Film at JFS Annual Meeting
It's a simple love story of two
artists who meet on a plane to
Europe enroute to an art conven-
tion. They meet, fall in love and
decide to marry. But unlike other
romantic tales, this one features a
couple in their 80's.
The film, titled "Young at
Heart" was awarded the
Academy Award for the best
short subject documentary of
1987. It will be featured at the
Jewish Family Service Annual
Meeting on Wednesday, May 25,
at the Joseph Meyerhoff Senior
Center, 3081 Taft Street,
Hollywood. The meeting will start
at 7:30 p.m. and is free and open
to the public.
Directions to the Center are:

Boulevard, west to Nortli Park
Drive, north to Taft Street, east
to the Center.
Jewish Family Service Board
Member Rabbi Bob Frazin has a
special interest in "Young at
Heart." The female star of the
documentary, an 84-year old ar-
tist, is also his aunt.
It's such a heart-warming story,
he said, that a writer "couldn't
have written a story like this
one." Rabbi Frazin commented
that his aunt's philosophy on life
is, "Don't look back look
"The film depicts that senti-
ment so well and leaves you with
feeling that life at 84 can be
wonderful," said Sherwin Rosens-
tein, executive director, Jewish
Family service. "We're delighted
that Rabbi Frazin is sharing this
award-winning film with our
Board Members, staff and friends
of the agency."
Jewish Family Service offers a
wide range of services to senior
citizens and their families, in-
cluding counseling, respite care,
ongoing monitoring and Medicare
information. In addition, an Infor-
mation and Referral Service can
be especially helpful to locate
essential community resources.

What many taxpayers fear most
(besides an audit) is getting hit
with the alternative minimum tax.
When that tax is triggered, in-
dividuals invariably endup paying
more total taxes under far har-
sher rules.
Because of tax overhaul, more
people are having to calculate
their taxes both ways to see if
they're subject to the minimum
According to Vernon Martens, a
senior tax attorney in the tax ad-
visory group at brokerage firm
Merrill Lynch and Co., anyone on
the borderline last year should
make "projections for 1988 to see
whether they're (again) going to
have a minimum-tax problem.'
Anyone on the borderline last
year should make "projections for
1988 to see whether they're
(again) going to have a minimum-
tax problem."
If so, they'll probably want to
take evasive action by, for in-
stance, giving cash, rather than
appreciated property, to charity;
by declining to exercise incentive
stock options; and by steering
clear of certain types of municipal
bonds, the so-called minimum-tax
bonds. These are all considered
"preference items" the kind
most likely to unleash on the un-
wary the bite of the alternative-
minimum tax levy.
Broward Jewish Students
Take Israel Quiz
Hundreds of students in the
religious schools of North
Broward participated in the an-
nual Knowledge of Israel Quiz
sponsored by the Department of
Education and Culture of the
World Zionist Organization and
coordinated locally by the Central
Agency for Jewish Education.
Designed to stimulate the study
of Israel in the schools of the
Diaspora, the quiz contains ques-
tions on the history, culture,
politics, religion, geography and
leaders of the land of Israel. A
special study guide, "Our Israel at
Forty," was distributed
throughout the schools and served
as the basis for the test.
Dr. Abraham J. Gittelson,
Director of Education for the Cen-
tral Agency for Jewish Education
of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Ft. Lauderdale, noted
that "The Knowledge of Israel
Quiz motivates our students to in-
crease their understanding of the
development of the State of
Israel, its past and its present. It
has been a major factor of the
years in broadening the
knowledge of Israel and in
strengthening the ties with our
sacred land."
Those students who achieve
outstanding scores on the test
have their names entered into a
national lottery for a free trip to
Israel. Last year, a Fort Lauder-
dale student, Stacey Silver, was
one of the national winners.

(Exodus 33$
Israel is in trouble! And it is the
American Jewish community who
is at fault. We profess to love
Israel ... to care for the country
and her people yet nowhere is
the American Jew to be found.
Tourism is vital to both Israel's
economy and to her morale. When
we go on a mission, or merely visit
as tourists, we have the oppor-
tunity to stay in five star hotels,
eat in excellent restaurants, bring
home purchases from H. Stern or
Gottex. Our presence
demonstrates to our Israeli
brethren that they are not alone.
Other Jews faced much more dif-
ficult times in that very same
Esther Becker was one of three
teenage sisters who worked with
Manya Shochet on the first collec-
tive community in Eretz Yisrael in
1907. After a year and half, when
they had successfully completed
that experimental farm, she mov-
ed to the Jezreel Valley.
In 1909, she was one of four
women and twenty-six men who
established a new settlement in
Afula called 'Merchavia'. Golda
Meir joined this very same kibbutz
in 1921. This was the first Jewish
settlement in the Emek (the
Jezreel Valley). This region of the
country was, even then, one of the
most beautiful places on earth.
The land was purchased by
Joshua Chankin from a rich Arab
'Effendi' early in the year 1909.
But, for many weeks, the Arab
peasants who lived there refused
to vacate the property. Esther
Becker describes what they found
when the settlers finally arrived:
"Our first accommodation was
the abandoned, half ruined huts of
clay, which were infested with
vermin. But more important than
ourselves were the mules. Better
quarters had to be found for them.
And the sowing had to begin
without delay, for with the long
waiting, we had advanced far into
the season.
We chose for our 'public'
building an Arab yard containing
three huts, of which the largest
was twelve by eighteen in size.
This we turned into a kitchen and
dining hall. There was no fur-
niture. One half of the floor was
nearly two feet higher than the
other. So we called the higher half
'the table', and the kitchen was
set up on the lower half. Having
no stove we cooked on stones out-
side. In the two small huts we kept
our supplies and our fowl."
After much hardship and many
months of extremely difficult
working conditions, they finally
established a viable community.
Esther continued her narrative
like this;
"That new district, the great
open space of the Emek, the
valley of Jezreel, awoke a deep
and permanent love in me. More
than once I longed to leave the kit-
chen and join the line of men who
were driving the first Jewish
plough through the emek; for it
seemed to me that there was no
greater happiness than this in all
the world.
Late in August of 1929, the
Arabs staged a series of riots in
Palestine. They terrorized the
Jews, driving them from their set-
tlements. A young woman, today
remembered only as 'Sarah,
described the return to her village
in these words;
"We arrived in the midst of a
deathly silence, to a desolation
that appalled us. This had been
our home for the last three years!
Nothing at all is left of the bar-
racks; only the ribs of the iron
beds stick out gruesomely from
the ruin. The store-room is empty;
fragments of the smashed in-
cubator lie scattered on the
ground. We take a look at the tree
nursery. Everything is green and
fresh and undisturbed. We
breathe once more. The ruffians
did not understand at all that for
us the nursery means everything,
that it is more important than the
barracks ... We must leave now,
but we will get back to water the
young trees."
And get back they did Those
trees started many of the coun-
try's beautiful forests. Those
brave men and women created a
new life in the Land of Israel.
Many of their individual stories
are lost forever for they were
never recorded but we
remember what they accomplish-
ed and we honor them for their
It is vitally important, in this
time of stress, that each of us
make every effort to visit Israel as
soon and as often as possible.
We must lend our support and en-
couragement to show the Israelis
that we really care!!!

"Our goal this year is to have an
exciting, informative and leisurely
paced itinerary, and see firsthand
the important work accomplished
by Federation/UJA funds. We
urge you to join our CCC Mission
team Oct. 13-26 to Poland and
Israel, which, under the leader-
ship of myself and Missions direc-
tor Sandy Jackowitz, will provide
one of the most fulfilling ex-
periences in your lifetime. There
will even be time to play some golf
or tennis or just relax at the spa."
He indicated that he has been
proud to have been a part of these
remarkable Missions to Israel on
14 different occasions and bet-
ween him and Jackowitz, some 23
visits have taken place.
"We expect to sign up at least
40 people from our community for
this special Mission and are calling
on all major areas and divisions to
be the first on board," said the

Khalil al-Wazir, second to
Yassir Arafat in the umbrella
grouping of terrorist factions the
world complacently calls the
Palestine Liberation Organization
(PLO), was shot down in sight of
his wife and two of their children
in Tunis on Apr. 16. Wazir also
known as Abu Jihad (father of ho-
ly war) headed PLO "military
operations." In addition, he ap-
parently was coordinating the
Palestinian Arab uprising in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Intisar Wazir her nomme de
guerre is Umm Jihad (mother of
holy war) was quoted as saying
that after commandos killed her
husband with automatic weapons,
"I turned toward the wall and
prayed, waiting for my turn. It
never came."
Her fate and that of her children
differed from that of those caught
in other bursts of violence con-
nected with Abu Jihad. For exam-
ple: On Mar. 11, 1978, terrorists
landed on the Israeli coast. They
murdered the first person they
found, American photographer
Gail Rubin.
Then they hijacked a bus filled
with families on an outing. Before
security forces stopped them
killing nine and capturing two
the terrorists had murdered 33
civilians, including many children,
and wounded 82, firing from the
bus at other travelers.
Several years ago the
Jerusalem Post wrote of one of
the wounded. He was a young
father, wheelchair-bound as a
result of the attack. He had seen
his wife and children immolated
when the hijackers ignited an in-
cendiary grenade. Israel blamed
Abu Jihad for organizing the
coastal road massacre.
The point? Not to trade stories
of violent loss, but to distinguish
between criminals and victims,
the prerequisite for justice. Israel
which did not claim responsibili-
ty for killing Wazir held him ac-
countable for other such "military
operations." These included the
1975 attack at Tel Aviv's Savoy
Hotel 12 civilians died and
last month's Negev bus hijacking.
Then three Israelis including
the widower father of two young
children perished along with
the three terrorists.
News stories almost invariably
described Wazir as a moderate,
comparing him to Salah Khalaf
Abu Iyad Arafat's ideological
chief. Wazir's moderation could
be seen in his reported description
of the Negev hijacking as a
Echoes of
Coincidentally, on Apr. 18 as
U.S. naval forces blasted Iranian
oil platforms and navy ships in the
Persian Gulf in retaliation for the
mine explosion which nearly sank
the USS Samuel Roberts the
State Department termed the
Wazir killing "an act of political
assassination .. This violence is
not going to be part of the solu-
tion. The solution is going to
come through a negotiated settle-
ment that works toward a
comprehensive peace."
News of Wazir's murder spark-
ed a day of violent mourning in
the territories. At least 14 Palesti-

nian Arabs were killed and 100

to restore order. Such grief over
Abu Jihad does not suggest sup-
port for a negotiated settlement
and comprehensive peace.
Like Wazir and the PLO, Iran
and Iranian-backed Lebanese
Hezbollah (Party of God) members
believe in terrorism. Of course,
when they kidnap people like the
U.S. hostages in Lebanon, or
murder people on buses or planes
like the Kuwaiti aitliner recently
hijacked to Algiers, it is not terror
but "armed struggle."
Other armed stragglers include
the Japanese Red Army members
suspected of involvement
together with "Middle Eastern
terrorists" in the recent bomb-
ing in Naples which killed one
U.S. service woman and four
Italians, and the Red Army
member stopped in New Jersey
with three bombs in his car.
Among the Red Army's earlier
explits alongside Middle Eastern
terrorists was the 1972
machinegun and grenade attack
at Lod now Ben Gurion Air-
port in Israel. Twenty-seven peo-
ple, including 17 Christian
pilgrims from Puerto Rico, were
murdered in that joint Red Army-
Popular Front for the Liberation
of Palestine (PFLP) assault.
Again coincidentally, the PFLP
was an early practitioner of air
The American message after
the attack on two Iranian oil plat-
forms asserted: "Any further pro-
vocative or hostile Iranian
military or terrorist actions
against U.S. personnel or targets
will receive a firm U.S. response."

Hints Jordan Agreeable In Concept
Secretary of State George
Shultz said that "under the
right circumstances," Jordan
would be "agreeable" to the
concept of a ceremonial inter-
national peace conference on
the Middle East.
Responding to a question
from Sen. Robert Kasten (R-
Wis.) during an appearance
before the Senate Appropria-
tions Subcommittee on Com-
merce, Justice, the Judiciary
and Related Agencies, Shultz
reiterated his call for direct
negotiations between Arab
countries and Israel.
But he plays up the role of an
international conference, say-
ing it could "receive reports
from the parties" to the Arab-
Israeli conflict.
The conference would occur
two weeks prior to the start of
direct negotiations on
autonomy measures for
Palestinians. According to
Shultz's original timetable, the
conference was to have occur-
red in mid-April.
"If negotiations were to suc-
ceed, questions would arise
about international
guarantees" that could be of-
fered by the five permanent
members of the United Na-
tions Security Council chairing
such a conference, Shultz
The conference could help
resolve economic development
issues in the Middle East, as
well as the status of refugees
created by a political solution,
Shultz said. Resolving the fate
of refugees is "a subject that
international groupings can
deal with best.
Shultz said he believes that
'Egypt shares that view" of
supporting such a conference.
"I think that under the right
j circumstances, such a con-
ference would be agreeable to
Jordan. But I don't want to
speak for them they have
not said that in so many

In America's Interest
This week the House Appropriations Committee's Sub-
committee on Foreign Operations will hear testimony from pro-
ponents of U.S. aid to Israel. Advocates of close U.S.-Israel rela-
tions, and of American economic and military assistance to Israel,
traditionally have been the only ones to work for final passage of
all foreign aid. They understand that strengthening U.S. allies
strengthens the United States, and they recognize that Israel is
one of this nation's closest allies.
Two recent reports, one featured in this issue, highlight that
relationship. One demonstrates how Israel continues to be
America's staunchest supporter at the United Nations. The other
puts American foreign aid to Israel in perspective relative to U.S.
assistance to other countries, illustrating the bargain it is.
Fiscal 1989 will be the third consecutive year that the Reagan
Administration has recommended a total of $3 billion in foreign
aid to Israel $1.8 billion in military aid and $1.2 billion in
economic support. This is a significant sum, which deserves to be
placed in context;
Since 20 of 21 Arab states Egypt excepted refuse to make
peace with Israel, it must plan for the worst. That means spen-
ding well over $5 billion, or almost 25 percent of its annual gross
domestic product, on defense. By comparison, the United States
spends about 6 percent on defense, its NATO allies around 4 per-
cent. And a strong Israel bolsters the West's strategic position,
not only in the Middle East but in the Mediterranean basin as
well, especially as some NATO allies bicker among themselves or
make increasingly higher sometimes exclusionary demands
regarding U.S base privileges.
As for economic support, the current level roughly matches
Israel's interest payments to the United States for military loans
taken out after the 1973 Yom Kippur War and the defense in-
frastructure relocation from the Sinai to the Negev following
peace with Egypt.
The continuing large-scale arms buildup in the Arab world
forces Israel to keep pace. Added to that is a second economic
burden: the Arab economic war against Israel. This rests on the
"oil weapon," use of which sent a wave of inflation through the
world economy in the 1970's, and a boycott illegal under U.S.
law of those who do business with the Jewish state. Absent
both of these, Israel might be able to regain its status of a genera-
tion ago, that of a national economic miracle.
Meanwhile, U.S. aid is crucial to keeping Israel strong. An over-
whelming bipartisan majority in Congress repeatedly has
recognized this fact of international life. This year should be no

Interpreting Emigration Trends
The following "talking points"
are taken from a background
paper prepared by the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry
1. The issue is not the number of
people who wish to leave. Anyone
who chooses to do so for personal,
religious or national reasons
should have that right. The issue
should be the role of the State per-
mitting or restricting this right,
and the barriers which the USSR
continues to erect. Whenever it is
faced with pressure against one
such barrier (for example, "first-
degree" relative requirement for
an invitation to leave), the USSR
moves to apply a barrier in
another area (for example, "state
secrets" as an obstacle to
2. Data on Jewish Emigration:
A. At the beginning of the year,
it was estimated that there were
20,000 to 30,000 refuseniks.
B. Nearly 12,000 names were
identified by the NCSJ and pro-
vided to Secretary of State Shultz
who gave them to Soviet
authorities at the 1986 Reykjavik
C. Approximately 3,000
refuseniks, out of the 12,000, left
by the end of 1987. Thus,
8,000-9,000 refuseniks were still
in the Soviet Union at that time.
D. An additional 5,000 Jews left
in 1987. While 25-30 percent were
first-time applicants, most of
them had been in refusal, but were
not identified in the past. Thus,
they were not on the list supplied
at Reykjavik.
E. New applications are being
received by Soviet authorities.
Since departures are averaging
less than 800 a month, a backlog is
3. The citing of approximately
380,000 Jews who wish to leave is
the difference between the
270,000 who left since 1971 with
invitations from Israel, and the
650,000 who had invitations sent
to them, generally upon request.
The securing and submission of in-
vitations from Israel is still the
principal method for leaving.
4. 4. No one is certain as to how
many Jews wish to leave. Only a
sustained and systematic pro-
cedure, without newly created ad-
ministrative, legal, or political
barriers and restrictions can
demonstrate how substantial is
the actual number.
5. The "Right to Leave" is en-
shrined in various international
documents to which the Soviet
Union is pledged, including the
Universal Declaration of Human
Young Business and
Happy Hour
June 2
The Young Business and Pro-
fessional Division of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale is sponsoring a happy
hour on Thursday, June 2, at
Josephs Restaurant and Lounge,

Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, star-
ting at 6 p.m.
Admission to this event is $5
which includes hot and cold hors
d'oeuvres and one free drink.
The Young Business and Pro-
fessional group welcomes singles
and young married couples from
post-college age to the mid-
thirties to all events.
So, come on out for an evening
of good conversation, good food,
and all the festivities on June 2.

Rights, the Helsinki Final Act,
and Article 12 of the International
Covenant on Civil and Political
Rights which ensures that
"everyone shall have the right to
leave any country."
6. First-Degree Relative
Status: Anyone applying for
emigration must first receive an
invitation from a "first-degree"
relative, meaning only parent,
sibling or child now living outside
the Soviet Union. That means that
those whole nuclear families still
in the USSR would not be even
eligible to apply to emigrate. In
February 1988, at a meeting bet-
ween Secretary of State Shultz
and Soviet Foreign Minister
Shevardnadze, the Soviets in-
dicated that they will consider
broadening the definition of
"family" in the emigration code to
loosen the restriction on first-
degree relative status, at least for
the coming months.
7. Families with Draft-Age
Children: In March 1988, the Of-
fice of Visas and Registration
(OVIR) began telling families who
have male children between the
ages of 15 and 17 years old that
they will not receive permission to
emigrate at this time. The implica-
tion is that the children must first
serve in the military. After com-
pletion of military service,
however, Jewish applicants are
often denied permission due to
alleged "access to classified
8. Secrecy Classification: Jews
continue to be refused on grounds
of having access to classified in-
formation from previous jobs,
even though, for some, it has been
over 15 years since they were
employed. Generally, "secrecy" is
being used in an arbitrary manner
for most refusals.
With the 1987 Washington
Summit fading into history, and
the Moscow Summit approaching,
the Administration has stated
that the issue of human rights will
remain prominent in encounters
between U.S. and Soviet officials.
It is, therefore, imperative that
we continue to demonstrate our
concern for Soviet Jewry.
We do not intend to allow
General Secretary Gorbachev to
shove the Soviet Jewry issue
under the political rug. In both
pre- and post-Summit events in
New York, in Washington, in
Helsinki and in Moscow we will
bring a new resolve and a renew-
ed sense of purpose to the strug-
gle on behalf of Soviet Jews.
Soviet Jews:
Current Priority Issues
The following nine points, developed by the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry, is a priority list of issues to be resolved
in seeking a redress of the plight of Soviet Jews.
1) Emigration of all Refuseniks.
2) A substantial and sustained level of emigration involving new
3) Elimination of the requirements that prospective emigrants
receive invitations from first-degree relatives abroad.
4) The establishment of a reasonable time limitation for use of
the "State Security" denial of exit visas.
5) Broadening opportunities for freedom of religious and
cultural practices including Jewish culture, and particularly the
study of Hebrew, as well as the opportunity for Soviet Jews to
form associations with Jews in the USSR and other countries.
6) Provision of direct flights for Jews emigrating to Israel.
7) Evidence of equality of opportunity for Soviet Jews, par-
ticularly with respect to access to institutions of higher learning.
8) The non-jamming of Voice of America (VOA), Radio Liberty
and Kol Yisrael radio broadcasts to the Soviet Union.
9) Elimination of all forms of official and public anti-Semitism,
and action against the non-fascist and anti-Jewish groups which
are emerging in the Soviet Union.
TEL AVIV A pioneering innovation by the Bank Hapoalim
Group will enable non-Israelis to invest in the Israeli Stock
Market. This new fund, which has been named Ankor, permits
non-Israelis, including those living in Israel, not only to invest via
foreign currency but also to reconvert profits accrued on their in-
vestment into foreign currency.
