Israeli Leaders React To Jordan's Proposals
Israeli leaders were divid-
ed along party lines in their
reactions to King Hussein of
Jordan's peace proposals
made at the United Nations
on his visit to the U.S. last
According to an interview
in the Jerusalem Post,
Prime Minister Shimon
Peres welcomed Hussein's
declared readiness for
Jirect negotiations with
Israel, but that he was anx-
ious that his positive reac-
tion to Hussein's statements
not be interpreted as sup-
port for the intended
U.S.-Jordanian arms deal of
$1.5-$1,9 billion.
President Ronald Reagan
was clearly upbeat after his
talks in Washington with
Hussein at that time and
said that procedural dif-
ferences over the opening of
Arab-Israeli peace talks had
been narrowed. A top U.S.
official said that Reagan
was determined to get
negotiations started before
the end of the year.
While many Labour Party
leaders welcomed Hussein's
speech, there was general
condemnation on the Likud
side of the national coalition
government, led by Vice
Premier and Likud party
leader Yitzhak Shamir.
Shamir, who was in New
York to address the UN,
said that there was
"nothing new" in Hussein's
speech. Shamir noted that
Hussein was still calling for
an international conference
on the Middle East with the
participation of the Soviets,
which is anathema to both
Israel and the U.S. Further-
more, Shamir said, it was a
contradiction to talk of both
an international conference
and the direct negotiations
that Hussein claims to
The following are key ex-
cerpts from King Hussein's
UN speech:
"We are prepared to
negotiate, under ap-
propriate auspices, with the
government of Israel, pro-
mptly and directly, under
the basic tenets of Security
Council Resolutions 242 and

Jews Seek Path Through South Africa's Turmoil
Where do South Africa's Jews stand in the con-
text of the burgeoning revolution in that country?
How do they fit into the volatile and complex
jigsaw that is becoming irreversibly more ex-
plosive as the cracks grow sleadily wider?
Frustrated national aspirations, mutual
distrust, outbursts of terror and a debilitating
campaign of protest have become integral facets
of life in sunny South Africa coupled with a
gnawing fear that the domino theory, which has
seen one white-ruled state after another yield to
its black majority, must inevitably apply to this
land of gold, diamonds, and some of the most
scenic stretches of coastline in the world.
The nation's 120,000 Jews are as caught up in
the future of the country as is any diehard patriot
because despite their peerless predilection for
participating in causes of the fomenting black-
white confrontation, they are identified un-
mistakably with the oppressive white regime.
Indeed, their record of economic achievement
is vastly out of proportion to their numbers. Not
only are they regarded by the blacks as part of
the white whole, but their highly visible financial
success, punctuated by their leadership of many
of the country's most prosperous business con-
cerns, is generally held by the blacks to be one of
Jtum serving in South Africa's army
the key causes of their discomfort.
For years. South Africa's Jews customarily
lent their electoral support to the left wing of the
political spectrum specifically the Progressive
Party so much so that Prime Minister Hendrik

CRC Program Year Gets Off to a Strong Start
The first meeting of the Community Rela-
tions Committee (CRC) of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauderdale was held on
Thursday, Oct. 10. According to Richard En-
tin, chairman of the CRC. the meeting was
very successful. "We had an excellent turn-
out" said Entin, "including returning
membersfrom last year's committee as well as
new members joining the CRC this year."
The highlight of the meeting was a presenta-
tion by Allen Grossman, standing, an assis-
tant director in the Florida Regional Office of
the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith.
"Allen's presentation was so well received,
and generated such a lively discussion, that he
barely had time to finish his prepared
remarks," noted Entin.
The next meeting of the CRC is scheduled for
Thursday, Nov. U, at 7:30 p.m. at the Jewish
Federation building, 8358 W. Oakland Park
Blvd. The guest speaker at that meeting will be
Helen Weisberg from the Central Agency for
Jewish Education, who will make a slide

Israel Tourism Climbs to Record Levels
New York Moshe
Shoshani, Israel's Commis-
sioner for Tourism, North
America, released the
tourism figures for travel
for the months of January to
August of 1985. This record
period reached an un-
precedented level of
253,000, exceeding last
year's number of 230,000
for the same period, a 15
percent increase.
"1985 has surpassed our
optimistic projections and
we are hopeful that we will
reach the half-million mark
of American visitors to
Israel this year," stated
The Israeli Ministry of
Tourism has launched its
fall advertising campaign in
the key markets of Chicago,
Houston, Los Angeles, New
York and Miami. In addi-
tion, the ministry is conduc-
ting a nationwide television
campaign with the now-
familiar slogan, "Come to
Israel. Come stay with
friends." This broadened
exposure will serve to fur-
ther stimulate American
travelers to select Israel as
an ideal, year-round vaca-
tion destination.
The Israel government
recently declared Eilat to be
the country's first free-
trade zone. Tourists will be
exempted from Value Add-
ed Tax (17%) on goods and
services for tourists and
shopping at special tourist
shopping centers will be tax
free. Tour packages to Eilat
will be reduced in cost offer-
ing tourists an exceptional
vacation experience at ex-
cellent value.

those who "vote Progressive" will not be pro-
tected from the wrath of the angry masses when
they finally break free of their humiliating
shackles or one throws in one's lot with the
strong-arm government.
It is precisely this quandary that is prodding an
increasing number of Jews to queue up at the
Australian, Canadian, American, British and
Israeli embassies in that order to open files
and ask about emigration. Two major deterrent
factors block the leap from agitated discussion to
concrete action, however the parlous state of
the South African currency and an obstinate
reluctance to concede that there is a real need to
get out.
Two years ago, the South African rand could be
exchanged at the bank for $1.30; today, it fetches
a paltry 35 to 40 U.S. cents, with some economic
analysis predicting that it could fall as low as 25
U.S. cents.
With families emigrating from South Africa
permitted to take only 100,000 rands with them,
it means that they arrive in their newly adopted
countries with less than $40,000.
Yet this is only the secondary factor thwarting
the Jewish community from moving. Prohibitive
though the state of the rand is, it is only in the
past six months that the value of the rand has
begun to plummet, and there was little sign of
aimificant emigration when it was still pegged at
a healthy level.
While comparisons between the practices of
Nazi Germany and South Africa are inaccurate in
the extreme severe discrimination and in-
humane practices are carried out m the latter,
while millions of people were murdered in the
former a comparison is valid regarding the
refusal to recognize a situation for what it is.
DesDite the accumulating evidence around
them Jews refused to leave Germany in the
1930' adamant that their positions of economic
and social power would ensure their safety should
s^Yneed ever arise. A cruel parallel has arisen
in South Africa, which is near Zimbabwe, Mozam-
bique and Angola all countries which have seen
white minority governments cede power to black
majorities after bloody guerrilla wars.
South Africa's whites are far more deeply, en-
trenched than were their former white
neighbors: They number five million against 25
million blacks a relatively small proportion.
They control the powerful South African Defense
Forces, and they have their hands on 70 percent
of the world's gold reserves, not to mention
uranium, diamonds, chrome, platinum, zinc and
The blacks have in their possession one unquan-
tifiable force economic muscle. The industrial
chaos that would ensue from a protracted strike,
shutting the nation's mines, factories and power
plants, would effectively put the government
under economic siege, make daily conditions for
the whites unpleasant indeed and reduce the
value of the rand even further.
Whatever the details of the scenario, the situa-
tion can only degenerate into a head-to-head con-
frontation between the blacks and whites. The
white government will not submissively hand
over the reins of power to its black subjects and
they, prompted on the one hand by years of
humiliation and deprivation and on the other by
the quasi-military machinery of the Soviet-backed
African National Congress terror movement,
have no intention of releasing the revolutionary
momentum that 18 months of persistent protest
has generated.
Caught up in the impending maelstrom are
120,000 Jews established, affluent, skating on
a pond of ice so dazzling that they are blinded by
what they see. But the fissures are there and
widening and the Jewish refuse to see them.

Pay 4 The Jewish Floridiari of Greater Fort Lauderdale/FrkUy, November 1,1985
What the Hebrew
Are Saying
Ha'aretz (Independent) (alls
Hussein's speech at the UN "a
mixed blessing." On the one hand
Hussein expressed his willingness
to conduct direct negotiations
with Israel, but on the other "he
left no doubt that he wants the
USSR and the PLO to participate
in an international conference.
Under these circumstances, the
willingness to conduct 'direct'
negotiations loses most of its
significance. In reality. Hussein
supports a negotiations
framework which will relegate
Israel a priori to an inferior posi-
tion. Kven if we suppose that the
Soviets, for some reason, are will-
ing not to appear as open op-
ponents of U.S. policy, Israel will
still find itself confronting tens of
other parties. What can we expect
in such a constellation?"
The paper urges a certain
degree of caution" since "Hussein
still remains loyal to Arafat, and it
is hard to believe that the 40 F 16
war planes he wants from the
U.S. will be used specifically
against Syria, and never against
Israel." Nonetheless, Ha'aretz
concludes that one must take issue
with Foreign Minister Shamir's
opinion that there is nothing new
in Hussein's speech, and that it is
nothing but "verbiage." Hussein's
reference to the children of the
patriarch Abraham may sound
slightly pompous, but the fact is
that the hashemite dynasty was
the first party, over 60 years ago,
to reconcile itself with the ex-
istence of the Jewish people as a
national entity in the region; one
should not reject outright,
remarks by the king of Jordan
that would seem to extend this
tradition ... It pays to try to ex-
amine Hussein's intentions."

Halting Assimilation ,
A MAJOR MOTIF among Diaspora Jews in the post-Holocaust
period has been political organization. Such activity is, apparent-
ly, considered to be the best guarantee for protecting Jewish
rights and for wielding influence upon governments on behalf of
The results are clearly evident in the American Jewish com-
munity: there has been a proliferation and expansion of national
Jewish "defence" agencies, federation structures and a growth of
the powerful "Jewish lobby." There has also been the recent
emergence of public affairs committees (PACs) as instruments to
influence Congress and intensify Jewish involvement in the
political process.
Yet sometimes political action has supplanted any sense of
positive personal identification. And all too often, the combating
of incurable anti-Semitism on both fringes of the spectrum has
become the core of Jewish commitment. But politics, "anti-anti-
Semitism" and money will not purchase Jewish survival.
ALL THE EXTERNAL achievements are hollow as long as
Jews are unravelling from within. For Jews are losing a critical
race against a shrinking demographic base. They are experienc-
ing an alarming rate of assimilation and an eroding self-identity.
Population projections for the estimated 5.5 million American
Jews differ, yet all speak of a steep decline.
According to the Harvard Centre for Population Studies, by the
time of the U.S. tricentennial in 2076 there will be fewer than
600,000 Jews in the United States. As for world Jewry outside
Israel, a study of the Division of Jewish Demography and
Statistics at the Hebrew University estimates that between 1980
and the year 2000, the number of Jews in the Diaspora is expected
to decline by 1.8 million to 7,927.000.
This drop will be due to a high rate of attrition through natural
death and assimilation, and not the result of a mass aliya to Israel.
Questions about the quality of Jewish life in the Diaspora should
be the central focus for those concerned with Jewish survival out-
side of Israel.
For the truly Jewish miakenim (unfortunate ones) are not those
inhabiting development towns, as is often depicted by Jewish
fund-raising ads. Rather, throughout the Diaspora, a large
number of Jews are destitute in terms of their own heritage, ig-
norant of their own culture and sorely lacking in the values of
their people.
THE SCOPE of the assimilation problem is staggering. Accor-
ding to a recent study by the American Jewish Congress, citing
the Jewish Educational Service of North America, 61 percent of
the Jewish youth receive no Jewish educational instruction. And
almost half (48.2 percent) of those who do receive any training, at-
tend classes only on a weekly basis. Experts, say the American
Jewish Congress, consider such minimal instruction to have no
positive impact on creating Jewish identity.
This means that under the optimal circumstances of a positive
learning experience, less than 20 percent of all American Jewish
youth have any educational foundation which would predispose
them to being actively-informed Jews,
According to a study of the Institute of Contemporary Jewry at
Hebrew University, the education figure outside of the United
States is slightly higher, hovering at around 36 percent.
At the university-age level, the situation is, in many ways, more
worrying for this is the last stop on the road to assimilation. It
is at this time that young Jews make decisions about future
lifestyles, professions, marriage partners, priorities.
For every young person who has heightened his Jewish con-
sciousness. many more just opt out without s struggle thev
silently leave the fold.
JEWISH STUDENTS the best and brightest among them -
leave their family, people and history. They quickly lose any
residual Jewish identity and instead choose s life of anonymity.
They will not be brought back by calls of anti-Semitism; rather
they will only be alienated further by an identification that is
purely reactive. They will not be brought back by Zionist political
organizations, which are perceived as anachronistic in genera-
tion that is largely disinterested in partisan ideology. They will
not be brought back by fund-raising or membership drives, which
are seen as an artifice! means of perpetuating a sense of belong-
ing, nor will they be lured by honours or plaques.
The most critical subject for Jews today the Jewish tomorrow
cannot simply be set aside. These young people are out there,
waiting to be inspired by an ideal, waiting to be excited by a
dynamic community and waiting to be challenged to personal in-
volvement based on respect for the individual and motivated by
genuine values, Judaism has all this to offer, yet for the most part
Jewish organizations have failed to adequately promote this

now that seems to be impossible."
Raskas pointed out that the
plight of Soviet Jews has worsen-
ed steadily since 1979, when the
Soviet invasion of Afghanistan
and U.S. congressional action on
arms control and trade credits all
had adverse effects on the spirit of
detente. In the six years since
then. Raskas noted, Soviet Jewish
emigration dropped from 4,000 a
month in 1979 to just 86 in July of
this year.
The B'nai B'rith official added
that "the teaching of Hebrew has
become a high-risk endeavor, with
an average of one Hebrew teacher
rrested per month."

Shamir in Washington
Israel's Vice Prime Minister and Foreign Minister YihJ
Shamir took a hard line on terrorism including the u^
deal by Egypt and Italy to release the hijackers of the linerKa
Lauro but urged progress toward direct Arablsraeli
talks at a press conference during his visit to Washington a!
9. Shamir also said that he restated to Vice President Bat
Secretary of State Shultz Israel's firm opposition to arms ri
Jordan and Saudi Arabia. *nnalaa.
"Israel is opposed to arms sales to Arab countries at J
peaceful relations with Israel," Shamir said, citing long-ttaatw
pohcy "We tried to influence the United States govemmsT
to sell arms to Jordan or Saudi Arabia before the amdnoarf
peace treaties" between the two Arab states and Israel |
sales "constitute a danger for our security" and "a fake
burden on our economy, the Foreign Minister said.
He did not discuss the possibility of receiving compenntat]
weaponry from the United States, Shamir said, because InS
hopes that the Jordan arms sales and a likely new Saudi sale 4
be reconsidered. Jerusalem does not know "if there will be a
change" in administration policy, but the sale "is up toCongna
now. Congress will have to decade."
Asked about the killing of an American, Leon Klinghofa b
the Achille Lauro pirstea. Shamir expressed "deep sorrow' mi
called Egypt's release of the terrorists "outrageous." He notd
that Israel "has many differences with President (Boss)
Mubarak. Now we have one more Terrorism is one of the b
geat obstacles on the road to peace.
"I will not say that terrorism endangers our existence or sees*
ty. We are too strong for that and the terrorist organizations W
weak But they are endangering an atmosphere which doen't
permit people to think about how to get peace, how to make ar-
rangements for peace."
Shamir discounted PLO claims that it had nothing to do wia
the ship hijacking and recalled the terrorism of the Bad
September group in the early 1970's. At that time PLO bar
Yasir Arafat denied that Black September was connected to OK
PLO. "(Later) he said several times that Black September wa
part of the PLO." Having splinter groups claim responsibility to
certain operations "is a way (for the PLO) to do something aal
deny it." Shamir charged.
Asked if Arafat has moderated his views, the Foreign Minista-
noted that "a commander of a terrorist organization who is print
orders to kill people cannot be recognized as a moderate.. He I
the enemy of peace. I don't believe him in anything."
Turning to the peace treaty with Egypt and Israel's return i
the Sinai Peninsula, Shamir said that they were the remits
direct negotiations between the two countries, not an interna-
tional conference. What Cairo tailed to regain in war it
through peace, he added. "Everyone knows that in the Mid*
East now you can get a lot with Israel by negotiations, but we wf
never surrender to violence."
He alluded to Israel's experience with aborted Geneva e
ferences and said that an international conference such at tM
called for by Jordan's King Hussein, would be "a stage for hort
propaganda. There will be many speeches. And the result. TO"
will be no peace ... Therefore, we do not want to look for sw
substitute for direct talks."
Shamir asserted that Shultz "agrees that our raid on Tunis*-
on the PLO in Tunisia was an act of legitimate self-drf
response to the Cyprus killings of three Israelis by n****"

Dulzin said that of the estimated
three million Jews in the Soviet
Union, about 260,000 have been
allowed to emigrate in the last 13
years. Of that group, he said,
some 170,000 have gone to Israel.
According to Dulzin, "A big

in the Soviet Union" where, he
said, hundreds of people were
engaged in the study of Hebrew.
Regarding efforts on behalf of

While Dulzin indicated "our
great struggle is for Soviet

specific religious problem," he
told the American Jewish leaders
in a briefing.
He said that Israeli religious law
stipulates that prior to marriage
one must prove "you are a Jew,
your wife-to-be is a Jew and that
you lived as a Jew."

Drug Abuse Programs
Plan National Seminar
Rabbi Albert B. Schwartz,
director of Federation's Chaplain-
cy Commission, recently attended
a Jewish Retreat Weekend for
recovering alcoholics and
substance abuse persons, spon-
sored by the JACS Foundation.
Rabbi Schwartz, has recently
become involved with this Jewish
problem, by organizing a local
task force to combat substance
abuse in the Jewish community.
The retreat, held Oct. 18-20 in
New York, was designed to bring
together recovering Jewish
alcoholics, chemically dependent
persons and spouses and signifi-
cant others to explore values and
spiritual resources within Judaism
that mav support and strengthen
their continuing recovery.
"Until now, the problem of
substance and alcohol abuse in the
Jewish community was not widely
publicised." stated Rabbi
Schwartz. "People closed their
eyes to the problem and believed
that it did not exist But it does
and those Jews need the help of
the Jewish community," Schwartz
Recognizing Rabbi Schwartz'
hard work and dedication to this
problem, the Council of Jewish
federations has invited him to
serve on a Steering committee to
plan for a National Consultation
on Addictions in the Jewish Com-
mumty, on Nov. 12 in

on Hijackers Capture
NEW YORK American
Jewish Congress leaders
congratulated President
Reagan on the capture of
the Achille Lauro terrorists
and charged that the PLO's
involvent with the hijackers
rules out its participation in
Israel-Arab peace
A statement released by Henry
Siegman, executed director of
AJCongress, declared that emerg-
ing evidence has made it clear that
the seizure of the vessel and the
murder of Leon Klinghoffer, a
civilian tourist, "grew out of a
plot orchestrated by the PLO,
despite its denials."
The statement declared that
Abul Abbas, a key aide and sup-
porter of Yasir Arafat, was the
leader of the terrorists who seized
the ship and killed Mr. Klinghof-
fer. Abbas later was sent by
Arafat to negotiate a "secret
deal" with the Egyptians design-
ed to allow the pirates to go free,
it noted.
"The PLO has not changed its
spots," the statement said. The
seizure of the Achille Lauro and
other terorists acts by the PLO, it
asserted, made it clear that the
organiztion has not given up ter-
rorism for negotiation and
therefore is not entitled to par-
ticipate in peace negotiations bet-
ween Israel and the Arabs.

Peres Unveils...
A 7-Point Peace Initiative
(JTA) Proclaiming that "the
state of war between Israel
and Jordan should be ter-
minated immediately." Israeli
Premier Shimon Peres unveil-
ed a seven-point new initiative
to reach peace with Israel's
eastern neighbor.
Addressing the 40th an-
niversary session of the
General Assembly, Peres call-
ed for direct negotiations
without preconditions between
Jordan and Israel with the goal
of reaching a peace treaty as
well as to resolve the Palesti-
nian issue. He declared:
"Negotiations are to be bas-
ed on United Nations Security
Council Resolutions 242 and
388, and on willingness to
entertain suggestions propos-
ed by other participants;
negotiations are to be con-
ducted directly between
states; if deemed necessary,
these negotiations may be in
itiated with the support of an
international forum, as agreed
upon by the negotiating states;
this gathering can take place
before the end of this year, in
Jordan, Israel or any location,
as mutually agreed upon."
"We will be pleased to at-
tend an opening meeting in
Amman,' Peres added.
"Negotiations between Israel
and Jordan are to be con-
ducted between an Israeli
delegation, on the one hand,
and a Jordanian or
Jordanian-Palestinian, on the
other, both comprising
delegates that represent
peace, not terror," an allusion
to Israel's rejection of any
joint delegation with the par-
ticipation of the PLO.
The Jordan delegation to the
UN was among other delega-
tions, excluding Egypt, which
left the General Assembly hall
at the start of Peres' speech.
Early Tuesday, indications
were that Jordan had already
rejected Peres' offer.
Peres said that the proposed
negotiations with Jordan may
produce intermediate as well
as permanent arrangements.
'They may deal with the
demarcation of boundaries, as
well as the resolution of the
Palestinian problem. The
Camp David accords provide a
possible basis for the attain-
ment of this objective."
Peres also suggested that
the permanent members of the
Security Council may be in-
vited to support the initiation
of the negotiations between
Israel and Jordan but he
stressed that Israel objects to
the participation in the talks of
Security Council members
which do not have diplomatic
relations with Israel.
Peres added, "In order to
expedite the peace process,
the agenda, procedures ad in-
ternational support for
negotiations can be discussed
and agreed upon at a meeting
of small working teams to be
convened within 30 days."
Concluding, he stated: "I
hereby proclaim: the state of
war between Israel and Jordan
should be terminated im-
mediately. Israel declares this
readily, in the hope that King
Hussein is willing to
reciprocate thuis step. Let us

not confine the horizons of our
vision to the limits set by what
is history-proven. For the
future holds yet untold
possibilities for peace and pro-
sperity for our wsr-torn
lands. "
The other parts of Peres'
speech were devoted to assail-
ing terrorism, the state of
Israel's relations with Egypt
and the plight of Soviet Jewry.
"In our region," said Peres,
"terrorism is at war with
peace. Terrorism is bent on in-
juring the peace process but
we have an equal determina-
tion: It will not stop progress
toward peace. We reject the
absurd claim that resisting ter-
rorism rather than ter-
rorism itself undermines ef-
forts for peace." He charged
that PLO terrorism has
brought more tragedy than
anything else to the Palesti-
nian people.
Turning to Israel's relations
with Egypt. Peres declared:
"We turn to our Egyptian
friends with the invitation to
breathe life into our relations
and to raise our peoples'
spirits; let us not allow gloom
and doom to overshadow our
worthiest accomplishments;
let us make our peace a success
a source of encouragement
to others."
Appealing directly to the
Soviet leaders. Peres declared,
"Let our people go. Empty the
prisons of people whose sole
crime is loyalty to Jewish
tradition and pursuit of the
Zionist dream. Individuals like
(Anstoly) Sharansky and
(Yosef) Begun. This call ex-
ceeds ordinary political con-
siderations. It reaches the
depth of human dignity and
the source of human rights."
Meeting with Israeli
reporters, after his speech,
Peres was asked it he had any
idea of what King Hussein's
response to his proposal would
be. He replied that he didn't
know, but that he thought it
was worthwhile, by introduc-
ing his initiative, to present
Israel's position in the clearest
terms. Asked if Israel had
changed its position about an
international peace con-
ference, Peres answered that
there must be a distinction bet-
ween an international peace
conference, supported by Hus-
sein, and an international
forum as proposed bv Israel

Add a little spice to your life?
Some people are taking that ad-
vice literally swallowing cap-
sules of Garlic oil or even chew on
raw cloves.
The latest version of the
centuries-old bdief in the special
properties of the aromatic bulb
has been prompted by medical
researchers' reports that garlic
and its dose relative, the onion,
may in fact have value in the
treatment, if not prevention, of
cardiovascular disease.
The claim that garlic might have
something to do with heart
disease came as early as 3000 B.C.
when it was asserted that garlic
helps keep blood flowing
smoothly. Now studies in animals
are suggesting that extracts ot
garlic may alleviate some of the
blood problems associated with
atheroederods, the itiimn that
leads to blocked blood vessels and
subsequent heart attacks sad
Unfortunately, not many
studies have been conducted on
the cardiovascular offsets of
garfac or onions people Fewer
still have followed the rigorous ex-
perimental procedures
to ensure reliable results.

Some Ethics of Judaism
Peru's Jews Watchful as

"The Lord our God,
the Lord is one"
Our Judaism teaches
He is the One creating all
Throughout the earth's

To "love thy neighbor

With all embracing love
Our Judaism has decreed
For blessings from above.
It means no envy must take root
In any Jewish heart
No malice toward the human race.
Of which we're all a part.
To trust and humbly
walk with God;
Have tolerance for all
To feed the poor, and
nurse the sick;
To comfort those that fall
These things are taught
to ward off hate.
Or love that's unrequited.

So men shall be united.

Peru considers itself a Third
World country. Antagonism
against the industrialized coun-
tries, including the United States,
is stronger than ever. The Soviet
presence is stronger here than in
any other South American coun-
try. It is no accident that the
Palestine Liberation Organization
has an office with full diplomatic
status, recognized by the Peru-
vian government.
According to a study by Leon
Trahtemberg, director of the
Hebrew School of Lima, the
Jewish population of Peru
decreased by about 10 percent
during the last few years there
are some 4,500 Jews at present -
because of the decrease of Jewish
birth rate and emigration, chiefly
to the United States and Israel.

During their university term,
young Jews tend to stray from the
