Chanukah:
The Most Important
Holiday Of All
By SUSAN SCHNUR
HOPEWELL, N.J. When
my little brother Danny was
five years old, he begged my
parents for a Christmas tree.
It was out of the question.
Still, that December, my old-
est brother and I drove Danny
around in the evenings, rubber-
necking around the well-to-do
Christian suburbs, seeing
whose lawn decorations pulsed
the brightest like jewels,
like winter fireflies and in
whose picture window stood
the best tree.
When Christmas was over
that year, we older kids, walk-
ing home from Hebrew school,
spotted one of the neighbor's
Christmas trees lying in the
gutter.
Excited, we hauled it over
our backs and dragged it home
for Danny. But as he stood
looking down at it in the dirty
backyard snow, we saw the
tree suddenly for what it really
was: a bedraggled, dried-up
old thing, its tinsel gimp and
spindly, its needles a dark
ocher. It was lying in mud. It
was (we recognized abruptly)
dead. Danny cried.
Several years later, when I
was in high school in Prin-
ceton, N.J., the headmaster
agreed (it was an ecumenical
year) to give us Jewish kids
"equal time" during the
Christmas assembly.
All week long we made holly
wreaths and pomander balls
for sale by the women's club;
we decorated a two-story-high
blue spruce tree in the school
lobby; and we sang Handel and
Pergolesi and Bach.
At the end of the week came
the assembly. I climbed on to
the stage for the Chanukah
segment of the program, hav-
ing already sung "Gottes Sohn
1st Kommen" with the madri-
gals, recited a moving piece of
Dickens' "A Christmas Carol"
with my English class, and
passed out delicious pfeffer-
nusse and speculatius cookies
with the Key Club.
I looked at the traditional
Chanukah cookies I was hand-
ing out (shaped, ostensibly,
like the shields of Maccabean
soldiers and smeared with
coarse, neon-blue sugar) and,
suddenly, like with Danny's
Christmas tree, I saw them for
the first time.
They were banal, standard-
ized, stupid. They were the
most moronic holiday cookies I
had ever seen. They tasted like
pasteboard this I knew
but for the first time in my life,
I registered this as a negative
trait.
Then, with the four-part har-
monized rendition of "he was
despised, despised and re-
jected, rejected of men, a man
of sorrows ..." still ringing in
my ears, I opened my mouth to
sing: "I had a little dreydl. I
made it out of clay. And when
it's dry and ready, Oh dreydl I
will play."
The performance over, I hid
in one of the dressing rooms.
Chanukah was never meant
to compete with Christmas.
Historically, it is utterly a
minor holiday. The Mishna
does not mention it. The
"Books of the Maccabees" are
excluded from the Jewish
canon.
Josephus, the Palestinian
historian of the first century,
scarcely knows what the holi-
day is: "The festival is called
'Lights,' he writes uncertainly,
"because the free practice of
our religion was to us like a
rising day of light."
In the Talmud, Chanukah is
mentioned only once, passing,
by one of the dotty, rather
abstracted rabbis, who asks,
"What is Chanukah?" as if he
hadn't a clue.
But it occured to me in high
school, as I sat by myself on a
bench in a darkening dressing
room at the back of an audito-
rium in Princeton, that Chanu-
kah was not minor any more.
Not for American Jews. Not
for us.
It was major. Probably the
most major Jewish holiday of
all: more important than the
Sabbath or Passover, or even
that most holy of holidays
the Day of Atonement.
Because it is on Chanukah
that each of us gets our first
and strongest lesson in iden-
tity.
My brother Danny learns
(age five) that he is not a
Christian, that being Jewish in
this world means denying him-
self certain things.
I learn (age 16) de Tocquev-
ille's lesson that the great
weakness of a democracy is
the "tyranny of the majority"
the wish that we cling to
deeply: to be like our neigh-
bors. I gain the knowledge
that we are not.
And the unfairness of the
competition between Chanu-
kah and Christmas under-
scores and echoes that lesson
derived from the holiday sea-
son itself: that it is "they," not
"us," who make up the games
and the rules and the stan-
dards.
That "they" is reasonably
everybody beyond Mom and
Dad and Uncle Bob and Aunt
Harriet and the Schwartzes
across the street.
Despite everything we hear
about separation of church and
state, we live in a very Chris-

Arafat's Exclusion
It is now a week since Secretary of State
George Shultz said "no" to Yasir Arafat. The
move to deny Arafat a visa to enter the United
States in order to address the United Nations'
General Assembly subsequently has been re-
affirmed and is "firm and final," according to
the State Department. As if to blunt any
criticism, President Ronald Reagan personally
has endorsed the exclusionary move.
What began in Algiers, the chairman of the
Palestine Liberation Organization chose to
complete at the UN. That is, Arafat would
have taken the stage at the UN and sought
further legitimization as the credible leader of
an accepted nation state in the council of
nations.
Noting that PLO actions and statements
offered only implicit recognition of Israel, the
United States needed explicit recognition of
Israel as well as a denunciation of terrorism.
Neither has been forthcoming.
In the textual statement, the U.S. made
perfectly clear that it based its decision on the
contention that Arafat "knows of, condones
and lends support to" acts of terrorism.
Notwithstanding the host country's obliga-
tions to the UN, the U.S. prohibits entrance to
known terrorists.
The probable outcome of all this, of course,
is that the UN session will be held outside the
U.S. There is a move in progress that such a
session will be held in Geneva.
The State Department allows how the U.S.
is obligated to extend its national courtesies to
those invited to the UN, Indeed, it stated that
the PLO Observer Mission and its members
have been accorded privileges since 1975.
Beyond a general disapproval, the U.S. cited
terrorist actions against Americans as well as
others, specifying the murder by name of
Leon Klinghoffer.
If there was a question of Arafat's culpa-
bility, the U.S. chose unequivocal language:
". he, therefore, is an accessory to such
terrorism."
Using a play on Arafat's earlier statement
that he bore in his 1974 UN visit both "an olive
branch and a freedom fighter's gun," the U.S.
chose to exclude a participant who "can wave
the flag of justice in one hand and brandish the
weapons of terrorism in the other."
While we acknowledge that this move to
exclude the PLO chairman will and already
has had international political reper-
cussions, we concur with the action. It is one
of principle.
If the United States was condemned at
home and abroad for its behavior in the
Irancontra affair in which the administration
abandoned principle in an expedient attempt
to deal arms for hostages, it chose not to make
that mistake in realpolitick again.
As America takes the risk of being isolated
in a stand that is unpopular vis-a-vis Yasir
Arafat, The Jewish Floridian joins lauding a
proud and noble nation that chose principle
over pragmatism.

Repairing a Broken World
By RABBI
MARC H. TANENBAUM
Tikkun olam the repair
and healing of the brokenness
of the world.
If there is a single, predomi-
nant ideal which animates the
whole of Jewish trdition, it is
that of tikkun olam.
Translating that central
Jewish value into daily reality
has taken on on some remarka-
ble and wonderful forms.
A relatively young Jewish
organization, the American
Jewish World Service, has
been modestly but effectively
working to relieve human suf-
fering hunger, illness, pov-
erty in famine and drought-
ridden countries in Africa,
Asia, and Latin America.
The brainchild of industrial-
ist Larry Phillips, and former
Oxfam development expert
Larry Simon, World Service
has begun to provide a proud
and identifiable Jewish pres-
ence in the Third World, side-
by-side with major Christian
and other voluntary group pre-
sences.
Israeli desert agricultural
experts have been working
closely with World Service
professionals to provide devel-
opment know-how that has
already relieved much hunger
and tragedy.
The intention of both Israel
and World Service has been
humanitarian, but there are
clear signs that its program
has begun to win much good
will among masses of people
who have been helped.
There are other such
humane undertakings carried
out by the impressive Ameri-
can Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee, and on the domes-
tic front, Mazon, among
others. I will write more about
them in a later column.
It is simply reassuring to
know that among many caring
Jews, tikkun olam means
something genuinely rede-
mptive in the world, and is
more than a pious liturgical
phrase.
Biography of Judah Benjamin
By ANDREW SILOW CARROLL
Few American Jews remember, let alone
celebrate, the name Judah Benjamin, despite the
fact that Benjamin may have been the most
powerful Jew in American political history.
From 1861 to 1865, the portly, bearded lawyer
served as attorney general, secretary of war and
secretary of state to the Confederacy.
As Confederate President Jefferson Davis'
right-hand man, he was known among friends as
"the brains of the Confederacy," and among
enemies as the South's "court Jew."
Before the Civil War, Benjamin became the
first acknowledged Jew to serve in the U.S.
Senate, and was considered for a seat on the
Supreme Court 60 years before Louis Brandeis.
After the war, as a "refugee from the lost
cause," he built a career as an international
lawyer of formidable stature.
Now, one hundred years after Benjamin's
death in Europe, the task of resurrecting his
memory has fallen to another lawyer of South-
ern Jewish roots.
In "Judah P. Benjamin; The Jewish Confeder-
ate" (The Free Press, $24.95), author Eli Evans
presents what he calls an attempt to "give
Judah Benjamin back to Jewish history."

tian country. Despite ail the
fuss in our public schools about
keeping out a "moment of
prayer' or even a "moment of
silence," second-graders from
Maine to California trade
Christmas pollyannas, and vie
for the green and red crayons
in the Crayola box, and enjoy,
after all, a Christmas vacation.
Chanukah, then, is a time of
weird religious affirmation for
American Jews.
All through the month of
December we feel darkly apart
from things. The songs piped
through the grocery store are
not ours. The greetings
extended to us do not apply.
Even conifers a kind of tree,
for God's sake take on a
religious affiliation.
Oddly, this cements our
identity. We become Jewish
through omission. And isn't
this, anyway, for many of us,

MY L we don't bake. The colors we
don't use.
These things bring us
together. They make us very
close. They become us. On the
Day of Atonement, what
makes us Jewish? The fact that
we fast, or the fact that, as
children, we were absent from
school? The latter, I think. And
how much stronger a holiday it
would be if only we were pre-
sent in school in order to note
our absence!
That is why, after all, Chanu-
kah is the most important holi-
day. Because we are present,
we are here, in America, all
month marking, every
moment, our absence.
When my niece, age four,
asked her mother, "Is rain
Jewish?" she was still a child.
But when she explained to
me, age five, "1 don't believe
in Santa. I'm Jewish," she was
already grown-up, imprinted
with the strongest, the most
ineluctable, the most funda-
mental Jewish-identity lesson
of all. The lesson of Chanukah.
That beyond Bobby and Pop
Pop and her Aunt Susan who
is a rabbi and her uncles and
aunts and cousins and the
Schwartzes across the street,
it is not a Jewish world out
there. It is not even neutral.
It's Christian.
And when I asked her like
the doddering old Talmudic
rabbi of nearly 2,000 years ago
"Michele, what is Chanu-
kah?", she missed not even a
beat. "That's easy, Aunt
Susan," she replied. "It isn't
Christmas."
Susan Seknur is an editor at Lilith
and a writer living in New Jersey.

Choice
Causes
Caution
NEW YORK (JTA) Jew-
ish leaders reacted with cau-
tion after President-elect
George Bush announced the
selection of John Sununu, out-
going governor of New Hamp-
shire, to be his White House
chief of staff.
Of chief concern has been
Sununu's refusal to repudiate
the 1975 U.N. resolution
equating Zionism with racism,
in response to a 1986 cam-
paign by the World Zionist
Organization-American Sec-
tion asking governors to con-
demn the declaration.
Sununu was the only gover-
nor to refuse, excusing himself
by saying he believed it was
inappropriate for a governor
to get involved in foreign mat-
ters. He repeated that state-
ment in July at the National
Press Club.
He has, however, issued
other proclamations of solidar-
ity with other nations during
his tenure as New Hampshire
governor.
Sununu, the 49-year-old son
of a Lebanese father and El
Salvadoran mother, is the
highest-ranking U.S. office-
holder to be a member of the
National Association of Arab
Americans.
In that position, he has
shared the podium at an organ-
ization forum with a member
of the Palestine Liberation
Organization.
Sununu has also traveled
throughout the country to rep-
resent Arab Americans before
Republican conclaves.

Paige Schneider, a graduate
student of political science at
Florida Atlantic University
(FAU), has been awarded the
first annual Rae Raskin Memo-
rial Scholarship. The $500
scholarship was started by Dr.
Michael Raskin in memory of
his wife Rae, who died in 1985,
two months before she was to
have received her master of
arts degree in political science
from the College of Social Sci-
ence at FAU.
Schneider, a resident of Mar-
gate, is a native of Miami and a
graduate of Southwest High
First Annual Raskin Scholarship Awarded
School. In 1985, she earned
her bachelor's degree in politi-
cal science at the University of
Florida. She has been a gra-
duate research assistant in
FAU's Political Science
Department and maintains a
4.0 grade point average.
The scholarship presentation
was made at a recent awards
ceremony, at which Schneider
and 18 other students were
inducted into Pi Sigma Alpha,
the political science honorary
society. Among the others
taken into the society's Eta
Delta chapter were Scott L.
Burton of Boynton Beach, Jen-
nifer Eberlin of Ft. Lauder-
dale, Mark Feldman of Planta-
tion and Sheri L. Rembaum
Coven of Tamarac.
Among those attending the
induction ceremony were Ber-
tha and Seymour Kurtzman,

Shekel Could
South Florida Family Celebrates Knesset Seat Be Devalued
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
RANDI Firpo, a native
South Floridian, went to Israel
for a year of study. She fell in
love with both Israel and a
politically ambitious young
man while attending Hebrew
University.
She married Tsachi Han-
egbi, who is the son of Geula
Cohen, leader of the right-
wing Tehiyah Party. In the
Nov. 1 election, Hanegbi
became a Knesset member
himself at age 31, its young-
est member ever when he
won a seat on the Likud ticket,
the party from which Cohen's
party had splintered.
"He was student body presi-
dent who said he always
wanted a girl with golden
hair," Firpo says. "He picked
(Randi) out in a crowd and
bribed somebody so he could

sit next to her and (then) intro-
duced himself."
In June 1983, they married
and the former Nova High
School graduate, her husband
and son live in French Hill on
Mt. Scopus.
Frank Firpo, Randi's father,
said he is not worried about his
daughter living in Israel.
"Israel's been having prob-
lems for 2,000 years and they
seem to be doing pretty well
for themselves," he said. "My
daughter's a very strong-
minded girl. She's definitely a
Zionist not religious but
has an extremely strong feel-
ing forcing Jewish."
JERUSALEM (JTA) Fear
that the next government will
have no choice but to devalue
the shekel has touched off a
rush on American dollars.
If the shekel is reduced in
value, it will take more of them
to buy a dollar.
As a result of the devalua-
tion panic, the Bank of Israel,
the country's central bank, is
being emptied of dollars at a
rate of $20 million a day.
Since July, Israel's foreign
currency reserves have been
depleted by about $2 billion
because of devaluation fever.
But they remain at a healthy
$4 billion, so financial policy
makers are not concerned.

Randi Firpo Hanegbi and
baby Edan.
"They call him one of the
young princes," said Firpo's
mother, Esther, of Emerald
Hills. The other "young
princes" who have historic ties
to Israeli government are Ben-
yamin "Benny" Begin, the son
of former Israeli Prime Minis-
ter Menachem Begin, and Ben-
i'amin Netanyahu, whose
irother was the only soldier
killed during the Entebbe Mis-
sion. Cohen was alongside the
elder Begin and Israeli Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir
working underground on the
Voice of Palestine, fighting for
an Israeli state.
"Randi can't believe
that he's done all this so
quickly," said a proud Firpo.
"He's a rising star. From the
time he was born, they said he
was being groomed for prime
minister. They say he's one of
the last idealists (the group
upon whose visions Israel was
built.) They care nothing about
monetary things. They just
want a strong, safe Israel."
Esther Firpo says she is
proud "and lonely."
THE Hollywood couple
misses their daughter and
often visits Israel to see their
grandchild, named Edan,
which means "new era .
They named him in hopes that
it would bring a new state,"
Esther said.
Randi and Tsachi reportedly
clung together as the very last
protesters to leave Ya amit
when the Israeli settlement
was bulldozed and turned over
to Egypt after the Camp David
Accords.
Attending the Alexander
Muss high school in Israel pro-
fram was Randi's first intro-
uction to the state.
"After that, all she could
think about was returning to
Israel," said Firpo. So she
went on a one year study pro-
gram at Hebrew University to
study English literature
and met her husband-to-be.
