_ With Israel's final with-
Irawal from Sinai now just
>ne month away, Israeli of-
ficials believe the time is
tight to emphasize, once
again, the huge assets and
>enefits that Israel is for-
leiting in the peninsula as
its price for peace.
This emphasis is especially
relevant, they feel, in view of the
increasingly common image of
Israel abroad as tough and in-
transigent. People in the United
States and elsewhere should be
eminded. say the Israeli offi-
cials, of the enormous concession
Israel has made by handing back
o Egypt the strategic and
iconomic assets represented in
in and largely uninhabited area
Sinai is an ideal staging ground
for the deployment and move-
ment of large armored forces. Is-
rael's brief history proves that
Egypt has been able to take acb
vantage of the open spaces ft
Sinai in order to prepare and
launch attacks on Israel.
The crucial value of the penin-
sula as a buffer zone was
maticalry demonstrated in the
om Kippur War when the Israel
Defense Force managed to with-
stand the Egyptian onslaught
- despite the worst possible con-
ditions of surprise and unreadi-
nessuntil reserve reinforce-
ments could be mobilised and de-

Israel has argued since then
that had the Egyptian strike
been launched from the old
and now new international
borderline, the massive tank bat-
is would have had to be fought
the very heart of Israel's popu-
ted areas, with casualties im-
measurably higher and the ulti-
mate repulse of the invading
forces far from assured.
ALSO UNDER the heading of
mijor strategic concessions in
Sinai. Israeli officials refer to the
ceding of eight airfields in the
peninsula, two of them among
the most sophisticated in the
Middh East. In addition, there
are the electronic early warning
stations on the Sinai mountains
and the naval base at Ophira. The
lack of Ophira, according to these
officials, must impair Israel's
abihty to protect its merchant
shipping to and from Eilat.
The return of Sinai to Egypt
entails, too, enormous economic
expenditure, say the officials. Is-
rael has made huge investments
in the peninsula, in oil and other
infrastructure, that cannot be re-
covered. In addition, the reloca-
tion of military facilities and of
the Jewish settlers has proved to
be an exceptionally expensive
Other assets that Israel has to
leave behind in Sinai include:
A network of modern roads
covering over 1,000 miles, built
up since 1967.
Power lines, water systems
and communications networks
which today span the entire

mission on Jewish Education of,
the N.Y. Metropolitan Region of,
the United Synagogue ot
America, will speack on "Hu-
manizing the Prophets: A Study
of Extraordinary Human Beings
in the Context of Their Own
Times." In addition to little
known facts of history and
sidelights into the personalities
and humanity of individual
rophets, his study will also touch
on misconceptions as to the
functions and roles of the
prophets in relation to predic-
tions" of future events and
Messianic hopes.
On May 3 "Jewish Historical
Miscelany" will be presented by
Herman Herst. Jr., noted writer
and columnist. He will discuss
the life and times of European
"Shtetls," iluminating them with
his own collection of souven rs,
some of them over 100 years old.

Secret Pentagon Plan
Envisions U.S. Dogfights With Israel
secret Pentagon contin-
gency plan circulated at the
height of the war scare in-
volving a threatened Israel
attack on Palestine Libera-
tion Organization bases in
southern Lebanon en-
visages joint US-Soviet po-
litical cooperation and even
possible US armed conflict
with Israel, in order to limit
a spread of the fighting.
The plan is reported this weak
by Middle East Policy Survey, an
authoritative Washington news-
letter, which said that it had bean
drafted by the professional
personnel of the U.S. Joint Chiefs
of Staff.
LATER, the plan was sub-
mitted to an inter-agency Leba-
nese contingency group headed
by Walter Stoessel, the Deputy
Secretary of State.
According to the newsletter,
the plan assumes that an Israeli
invasion of southern Lebanon
would soon escalate into an all-
out Arab-Israeli war. To limit
negative political fallout in the
Arab world against the U.S.; the
plan recommends that Washing-
ton take speedy steps to distance
itself from Israel.
As part of this effort, the plan
recommends that the U.S.
initiate talks with the Soviet
Union to try to remove Israeli
forces from Lebanon.
IN ADDITION, the newsletter
says, the Pentagon plan raised
the spectre of U.S. Israeli aerial
clashes, given "a hostile environ-
ment" during an American
evacuation of U.S. citizens from
A State Department spokes-
man described the plan as "the

was dismissed "out of hand" by

its existence underscores the
drifting anti-Israel attitude of the
U.S. military.

Arens Links PLO to West Bank Riots, Latin Guerrillas
Ambassador Anna
In Miami last week for the formal opening of the new
Israel Consulate General office headed by Consul
General Joel Arnon, Israel's new Ambassador to the
United States, Moshe Arens, said that a war among the
Arab nations is more likely than another Arab-Israeh
"There is threat of war every couple of weeks. That
unfortunately is the nature of the Middle East. There is
a war going on in the Middle East between Iraq and
Iran- Butbetween the Arabs and Israel-1 don't think
that's very likely."
Arena declared that it was bin baUaf that the.Pataa-
tine Liberation Organisation ban trained Central
American guerrillas and is "involved in developments
there that the United States faces today-
He also blamed the PLO for the West Bank violence
that has claimed at least seven lives and left dozens in-
jured during riots in various towns.
Former deputy prime minister Yigael Yadin who was
in Fort Lauderdale the week before Arens came to
South Florida said that Jordan's King Hussein waa
also to blame for inciting the Arab demonstrations
on the West Bank. He said Jordanian authorities pro-
voked violence by supporting general strike in the oc-
cupied territories and threatening Arabs who cooperate
with Israeli forces with death penalty.
Meanwhile the countdown for Israel's withdrawal
from the Sinai continues. Arena, at the Miami press
conference, said: "We're in the process of completing a

Crisis Won't Bring Election
it seemed
aides failed
Behind the drama of
Cabinet meeting last week
where Premier Menachem
Begin allowed himself to be
persuaded not to resign fol-
lowing the Knesset's 58-58
tie vote on a no-confidence
motion, lay a political
reality which.
Begin and his
to predict.
In bald terms, this was the
threatened rebellion of the three
small coalition parties the Na-
tional Religious Party. Aguda Is-
rael and Tami Begin had said be-
fore the Knesset vote took place
that he would resign if there was
a tie vote because it would
deprive his coalition government
of its moral mandate. Immedi-
ately after the vote the Premier
called an emergency session of
the Cabinet to tender his resigna-
tion, but the Cabinet rejected his
move by a vote of 12-6.
WHILE BEGIN and other
Likud leaders seemed to think
that the Premier's resignation,
and the automatic fall of the gov-
ernment, would trigger new
elections later this year, the coa-
lition partners plainly did not
share this prognosis. Nor did
they share Likud's interest in
early elections, and they made
that exceedingly dear to Begin
during that late-night extraor-
dinary Cabinet session.
Yoaef Burs, the veteran NRP
leader, indicated that if Begin
implemented his threat to resign
because of the tied vote, when
there was no constitutional
necessity for him to do so. the
NRP would be "open" to other
ways of staving off early elec-
tions. This meant, of course,
forming an alternative coalition
with Labor.
Avraham Shapiro, the Aguda
Knesset leader, gave similar
hints. When Begin noted that the
NRP and Aguda had pledged be-
fore the 1961 election not to align
with Labor against Likud,
Shapiro remarked pointedly that
he "wouldn't build on such pro-
. But Begin Says Early Elections
Appear to be Unavoidable
Premier Menachem Begin de-
clared that early elections are un-
avoidable and predicted that
'objective circumstances" would
send Israelis to the polls again
"within a year." Israel held its
last elections on June 30. 1961
when the Likud government was
returned to office for another
four-year term, though with a
substantially reduced majority.
Begin spoke to reporters in the
aftermath of last week's tied vote
in the Knesset on a motion of no-
confidence which had .brought
him to the brink of resigning. He
said he had been determined to
quit but deferred to a Cabinet
majority which voted 12-6 to re-
main in office.

Knesset observers described
the scene as pandemonium when
Knesset Speaker Manachem
Savidor suddenly halted debate
and called for a vote despite roar-
ing protests from the opposition.
He used that tactic because MK
tHaim Bruckman of the National
Religious Party was temporarily
absent from the chamber.
It was Druckman whose defec
tion from the coalition brought
about the 56-56 tie on the no-con-
fidence motion critical of the
government's handling of unrest
on the West Bank
Druckman. a bitter opponent
of Israel's iiiftending withdrawal
from Sinai, cast his vote against
the government on that ground
and indicated that he would op-
pose that government from now
on regardless of the issue. It was
to avoid a deadlock similar to
what occurred that Savidor inter-
rupted debate, a move the
Laborites charged was unprece-
dented and illegal.

AHARON Abu Hatzeira.
leader of the three man Tami
Party, spoke strongly against
Begin resigning at this time. He
said it was the Premier's historic
national responsibility to carry
through the Sinai withdrawal and
stabilize relations with Egypt in
the subsequent period.
Between the lines. Cabinet
insiders read a readiness on Abu-
Hatzeira's part, too. to switch his
allegiance to Labor in order to set
up an alternative government
and avoid early elections.
Likud ministers found them-
selves looking into a chasm: De-
feat and opposition stared back
at them. Begin, apparently1
sensing the new political reality
shaping up, indicated that he
would after all allow himself to be
persuaded by a majority of the
Cabinet not to resign.
A Cabinet source said later
that had Begin remained
adamant and gone to the Presi-
dent, "a government under
Shimon Peres would have* been
functioning within a week."
THE SOURCE reasoned that
Labor would simply give the
same undertakings and pledges
to the religious parties as Begin
had signed last year, justifying
this to its constituency by the
overriding need to remove Begin
and set up an alternative govern-

consulate in Miami was overdue because of the
significantly large Jewish population in South Florida
and the importance of the area for international trade.

Powerful Bombs Explode Outside Jewish Shops

ROME Two powerful
bombs exploded Saturday night
outside Jewish-owned shops in
the center of the city, causing
severe damage but no casualties.
A third bomb found outside the
El Al office in Rome was defused
by sappers before it detonated.
Police sources said leaflets found
at the site of the bombings indi-

EEC to Condemn
Israel on Weet Bank
BRUSSELS Leaders from
the 10-member European
Economic Community are ex-
pected to condemn Israel at their
current summit meeting here but
will refrain from calling for sanc-
tions against Israel or from issu-
ing a new joint diplomatic initia-
tive in the Middle East.
The 10 West European leaders
include President Francois Mit-
terrand of France, Prime Minis-
ter Margaret Thatcher of Britain
and Chancellor Helmut Schmidt
of West Germany.
The EEC has twice in the past,
in Venice in June, 1980 and again
in Luxembourg last December,
adopted joint statements of
policy on the Middle East. This
year, diplomatic sources say,
Mitterrand has called on his
West European partners to re-
frain from any new initiative
which, the French believe, could
only serve to accentuate tensions
in the area and hurt the Israeli-
Kgyptian peace treaty.
Meanwhile, 21 Arab states
have called on the European
leaders to vigorously condemn
"Israeli terror." The Arab states,

Deportation Anniversary
Of French Jews Noted
PARIS Two ceremonies
here marked the 40th anniversary
of the first Nazi organized depor-
tation of France's Jews to the
death camps of Eastern Europe.
Some 80,000 people, including
11,000 children and infants, less
than three percent of whom sur-
vived, were deported aboard 72
death trains which left France for
Nazi-occupied Poland.
Several hundred people, in-
cluding France's Chief Rabbi
Rene Samuel Sirat, Mayor
Jacques Chirac of Paris and
Presidental Adviser Jacques
Attali, gathered on the site of the
Drancy camp, where the Jews
were held before their deporta-
tion, and at the Rovallieu railway
station from which the first death
train left on March 27, 1942 with
1,112 Jews aboard.
Israels Sacrifices'
Streeeed Nationally
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations
has embarked on a nationwide
campaign to underscore Israel's
"major sacrifices for peace" and
to protest current Administration
policies in the Middle East that
could damage the peace process
and imperil U.S. strategic in-
terests in the region.
Howard Squadron, Conference
chairman, said seven regional
meetings had been scheduled at
which current concerns of the
Presidents Conference over the
"dangerous drift in U.S. policy"
would be explored. These meet-
ings will culminate in a National
leadership Conference, high-
lighting the dangers confronting
Israel, now being planned for
Apr. 20 in Washington.
Australia Foreign Minister
On Vieit to lerael
TEL AVIV Foreign Minis-
ter Anthony Street of Australia
praised the "courage of the Is-
raeli people" upon his arrival
here. His brief visit to Israel in-
cluded meetings with President
Yitzhak Navon and government
officials and a visit to the
\ Australian members of the Sinai
peace-keeping force.
Upon his arrival at Ben Gurion
Airport, Street told reporters:
"Australia is proud of its asso-
ciation from the beginning with
the creation of the State of Israel.
and your security is a fundamen-
tal part of Australia's Middle
East policy.
"The courage of the Israeli
people when under threat is well
known in my country. The Camp
David accords and the Israel-
Egypt peace treaty have also
shown that the people of Israel
are prepared to be equally
courageous in the search for
peace. Recent events make it
clear that the demands on your
reservoir of courage for peace
may well increase."
Cabinet Vowe to Continue
Weet Benk Policiee
Cabinet, at a 4 Vi-hour meeting,
declared that the government
would "continue undaunted" its
policies on the West Bank which,
it said, were aimed at destroying
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion influence there while giving
all possible aid to Arab residents
prepared to "observe the law and
keep the peace."
The 10 days of demonstrations
and rioting on the West Bank,
which spread to the Gaza Strip
and East Jerusalem, have taken
eight lives so far, including an Is-
raeli soldier killed in a grenade
attack in Gaza.
Three Arab youths were
wounded in a clash with security
police in the town of Yaabad near
Jen in in northern Samaria. The
town was placed under curfew.
The incident occured when an of-
ficer of the civilian administra-
tion of the West Bank arrived in
the town to meet with the local
mayor. A large group of residents
attacked the officer with rocks.
The soldier escorting the officer
fired back, wounding one of the

Not to Want to Strike
JERUSALEM The degree

manner in which Israeli Arabs

event protesting Israel's seizure
of Arab lands in Galilee six years
A call for a general strike by
the Committee for the Protection
of Arab Land which organizes the

a lukewarm response from the

body of Israeli Arabs.

Optimistic Expectations
The prospect of violence isforbiddingunder any cir-
cumstances. When it occurs in any part of Israel, it
becomes something from which we want to turn
away. Only we can't. Israel's problem in Judea and
Samaria becomes ours.
We are heartened by Ambassador Moshe Arena'
statement that there is no doubt that Judea and
Samaria are an inevitable and integral part of the
Jewish State.
And that the present violence on what the general
press calls the West Bank is largely the result of mis-
chievous pressures by the Palestine Liberation
Organization and Yasir Arafat who, in this instance,
according to Secretary of State Alexander Haig, ap-
pear to be aided and abetted by Jordan's King Hus-
We are heartened by this last because, as Ambas-
sador Arens told us in an interview this week, the
violence is the PLO's "last ditch stand" in the face of
the inevitable.
-Still, this leaves Israel with the uncomfortable
problem of what to do about autonomy once it with-
draws from the Sinai on Apr. 25. If Egypt's Presi-
dent Mubarak has been difficult about that issue up
until now, there is little hope that he will be any less
so once the Sinai is returned to him in toto.
Congratulations in Order
We congratulate Rep. Elaine Gordon (I)., North
Miami Beach, oil the occasion of the passing of her
bill in Tallahassee making it a felony of the third
degree to damage or deface any place of religious wor-
ship. The bill became law when it was signed by Go v.
Bob Graham on Mar. 15.
Now, it is no longer a simple misdemeanor to wil-
fully and maliciously damage the property of a
church, a synagogue or a mosque.
We agree with Rep. Gordon that by making such
acts a felony, Florida helps to assure the fact that the
incidence of this sort of criminal behavior will be sig-
nificantly reduced.
Perhaps Rep. Gordon is a bit too optimistic when
she offers the hope that in time such felonies will be
eliminated altogether. But, by her efforts, Florida
has gone on record that it will no longer release with
a mere vague slap on the wrist those ugly bigots who
do such hideous things.
Readers Write
Dear Ms. Kottler:
I'd like to take this opportu-
nity to express my personal
thanks and appreciation for your
effort and that of the Federation
in making possible the visit of
F.ran and Pnina to our school.
Their time with us was, to say
the least, a most pleasant and
valuable experience, and my stu-
dents expressed similar feeling
the next day as we discussed
some of their many impressions
of what Eran and Pnina shared.
I feel that, in spite of very
positive response at this time, the
real value of such a program can
be seen only from the long-range
perspective as things continue to
develop internationally for Israel
and our students remember this
visit and are able to relate what
was shared to the various polit-
ical happenings in the Mid-East.
It's an understatement to say
that American youth are terribly
ignorant concerning the world
political situation and their role
in it. One of the objectives of our
senior social studies course is to
define the citizen's role in the
modern world; Eran and Pnina
did so from the perspective of Is-
raeli you th in an excellent way, at
the same time stimulating our
youth to consider seriously what
goals and standards they need at
this point in their lives. As a
teacher, I was particularly im-
pressed with the variety of their
brief presentations which in turn
were sufficient to stimulate a
good amount of questions. They
fielded each and every question
professionally, yet in a sincere
and down-to-earth manner which
obviously won the attention of all
in the class.
I trust that its possible to
forward these comments to those
at a higher level who control pro-
grams like this and study the
"feedback" for futuie purposes.
If possible, I would have written
the Israeli Ministry of Foreign
Affairs and Ministry of Educa-
tion directly as well as you but I
didn't know the address. In any
case, please remember us for
future consideration with .any
program of this nature. We' ap-
preciate it deeply and thank you
once again for including us in
your plans.

Atlanta Pleased by Frank Case Outcome
The Jewish community
here is unanimous in ex-
pressing the feeling that
justice has prevailed in the
disclosure that a Jew who
was lynched nearly 70 years
ago was not guilty of the
crime for which he was
found guilty and subse-
quently murdered, by a
frenzied mob.
Leo Frank, a supervisor of a
local pencil company, was con-
victed in 1913 of killing a 14-year-
old girl, Mary Phagan, who
worked at the factory. But Jerry
Thompson and Bob Sherbome,
reporters for the Nashville Ten-
nessean. broke the story that
Phagan had been killed by the
i.inilur of jhe factory. Jim Con-
ley. This information was pro-
vided by 83-year-old Alonzo
Mann, who at the time of the
girl's murder was an office boy at
the pencil company.
THOMPSON, who earlier had
infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan for
16 months and later wrote an in-
side account of KKK activities
for the Tennessean, and Sher-
bome spent more than six weeks
on the Frank story, often
working 20 to 22 hours a day.
Vida Goldgar, editor of The
Southern Israelite, wrote in the
newspaper that the Jewish com-
munity here would like to see
Frank's name cleared on the offi-
-ial record in view of Mann's dis-
Ted Fischer, chairman of the
Atlanta Jewish Federation's
Community Relations Com-
mittee's steering committee, said
that even after 70 years, "it is of
vital interest to the Jewish com-
munity that an atmosphere of
cooperation and justice prevail
and that in a case such as this,
where new and important in-
formation has been received, it
should be given due considera-
tion because such information
allows us to build a better society
with justice for all," Goldgai
SHE WROTE that the com-
mittee, responding to the broad
interests and concerns which
have been expressed within the
Jewish community, is for-
mulating plans to attempt to set
the record straight for both the
Jewish and general communities.
Stuart Lewengrub, regional
director of the Anti-Defamation
league of B'nai B'rith, was
quoted by Goldgar as saying: "I
still believe that of all the villains
in this t raped v. the one who was
most malicious and bears the
greatest responsibility for the
(court) verdict and the lynching
was Tom Watson. And it is a
shame that his statue is so pro-
minently displayed at the capital.
It is a monument to the kind of
racial and religious bigotry which
hopefully is a thing of the past."
Watson, through his publica-
tion, the Jeffersonian, "played on
the fears, hatreds and prejudices
to bring about the frenzy of anti-
Semitism" that swept through
liis l'li:t;';ir i'i.ililj^ir wrote
SHERRY FRANK, director of
the American Jewish Committee
chapter here, said she was
"relieved that this historic injus-
tice is being rectified." She added
that the Nashville Tennessean s
"endless pursuit of truth" chal-
lenges "leaders throughout our
state to clear Leo Frank's name
once and for all." Rabbi Alvin
Sugarman of the Temple, of
which Leo Frank's uncle, Moses
Frank, had been a founder, was
(inured ly Godjrar as saying
"Even though it is years late in
coming, Mann has come forward
and shown his worth as a human
being ... he has chosen not to go
to his grave holding back son*

namely, the truth."
In their first public appears* ,
since breaking the story in a 10-1
page special news section under
the headline, "An Innocent Man
Was Lynched," reporters
* Thompson and Sherborne
recounted details of their inves-
tigation at a meeting of the
A.I Committee Atlanta chapter.
Thompson explained that tfc
story was significant to a new*
paper in Nashville, far removed
from Atlanta, because a number
of events were shaped by the
tragedy: the rise of the KKK;
the formation of the ADL; Hugh
Itursoy th<- prosiTiitor of Ii
Frank, went on to become gov-
ernor of Georgia: and Watson's
political power increased, and be
rode the wave to a seat in the
U.S. Senate.
FROM THE tragedy, Thomp-
son continued, the political careayj
of Gov. John Slaton, who cor*
muted Frank's sentence, was
sacrified, and he was driven from
Atlanta for many years. Thomp-
son likened the mob which
marched on the governor's
mansion after he commuted
Frank's sentence to pictures he

Himmler's Private Papers
Bought by Ex-Israeli Attache
The private papers of Hein-
rich Himmler, chief of the
German SS during the Nazi
era, and of his family, were
purchased recently in Mex-
ico for $40,000 from a
former Nazi, it was dis-
closed at a press conference
by Chaim Rosen-Thai, who
until a few months ago was
Israels Cultural Attache at
the Israel Consulate here.
But Rosen-Thal said that the
authenticity of the vaat collection
of documents has not yet been
completely verified and is under
scrutiny by various experts. He
declined to identify the person
who sold the documents because
"one of the conditions" of the
seller was that his name would
not be disclosed Rosen-Thal said
the seller was "the secretary of
the secretary" of Himmler whom
he identified as Karl Wolf
ROSEN-THAL, who said he
learned about the existence of the
documents five years ago from **
friend in Belgium who is an art
and gun collector, said the collec-
tion includes about 700 personal
letters of Himmler and his
family; scores of photos from the

County -
sored a UJA Mission to Israel.
The following diary of that Mis-
sion will bring bach many
memories for any Jew who has
ever visited Israel and will be an
inspiration to those who contem-
plate going.
On a raw but sunny day in
January an attractive young man
was being sworn in as President
of the United States. John Ken-
nedy moved the nation when he
said "Ask not what your country
can do for you but what you can
do for your country."
What we Jews do for Israel is
important. However, the mission
experience will truly have a life
long impact on most partici-
On the personal level, the Mis-
sion opened new horizons, a
deeper commitment to Judaism
and a new sense of values. Most
of all, it awakened us to the sim-
ple fact that to be a Jew is ever so
October 11, the first day of the
Mission had its beginning at the
waiting room, El Al Airlines,
Kennedy Airport There was a
sense of anticipation in the room.
One looked about, studying
strange faces. Were we all mo-
tivated in the same way? Wine
and cheese helped relieve the ten-
sion. Somebody was playing a
guitar, Israeli songs were being
sung by a group of young people.
We were pleased to learn that the
group consisted of Christians for
Israel from the midwest. These
young people were on their way
to Israel to lend their support.
Now if all Jews were equally *up-
portive of Israel!
Prior to departure there was a
briefing by the Mission chair-
man. Our flight departed at 10:30
p.m. Some of the passengers
literally walked to Tel Aviv, or so
it seemed. There was a constant
promenade despite warnings to
the contrary. We did manage
some sleep.
Oct. 12 Our first airline
breakfast of lox and bagels
seemed appropriate. There was
an unusual quiet as we entered
Israeli air space. The country is
so tiny that it seemed just
seconds to our landing approach.
People applauded and sang as
we touched down at Ben Gurion
We have landed in many
strange countries, but our feeling
as we made our way down the
plane's ramp was one of expecta-
tion, of coming home again.
Our baggage found its way
quickly to the bus. When we were
settled on the bus we met our
guide, Mike Taub. Mike turned
out to be our mentor, historian,
intellect in residence, and s good
friend. Israeli tour guides deserve
a paragraph all to themselves.
We have had two experiences
with Israeli guides. They have
both been excellent. They are
carefully trained and selected.
Invariably mission partici-
pants declare their guides to be
the best and perhaps they are all
Mike Taub is fifty-four, par-
ticipated in three wars. Mike was
very understanding and sensi-
tive. Our Mission would hsve
been far less revealing and lack-
ing in its sense of history without
Mike. The bus took us through
the rocky Israeli country side to
the elegant Tel Aviv Hilton. The
young ladies at the UJA recep-
tion desk in the lobby were very
helpful. We received orange juice,
Federation kits, keys to our room
in that order. We had time for a
welcomed shower and some rest.
Our Succos dinner was served
under a succo made of palm and
pomegranates. The idea was
Midway through a magnificent
dinner, the palm fronds suddenly
collapsed. This was the most
dangerous moment of the mis-
sion! The net result was that the
palm fronds were laid to rest and
we had pomegranates for the
We were entertained by two
famous Israeli singers. We did
not understand the songs, but we
were moved by the spirit and en-
thusiasm of the performers. The
diners soon joined in the singing.
Our first dinner in Israel was for
many reasons more than just
good food.
It might be appropriate at this
time to report that, despite
rumors to the contrary, the food
in Israel is first class.
Oct. 13 There was a 6:45
a.m. wake up call as breakfast
was being served at 7:15. All was
forgiven as breakfast turned out
to be a sumptuous buffet. Every-
thing one could imagine was
available from croissants to eggs
to luscious fruits of every variety.
Today, we are to tour northern
Israel and the Galilee.
We left Tel Aviv on a bright
and sunny day. October must be
sn ideal month in Israel as the air
was so clear that every view
seemed remarkably sharp. Our
bus slotted on a height overlook-
ing Haifa, the harbor and the sea.
The view was rather marvelous, a
good beginning to a memorable
trip. Our next destination was a
small settlement in the Galilee
Mite Tol El.
A major problem for Israel is
that the Arab population out-
numbers the Jews in the Galilee
in the ratio of eight to one. Set-
tlements such as Tol El are an ef-
fort to combat this situation.
There are eight Russian families
st Tol El. The settlers are profes-
sionals who gave up the comfort
of urban living.
A high wire fence afforded
some protection from their
numerous Arab neighbors in the
valley below. The sacrifices of
these bright young people were
typical as we were later to wit-
ness in the Negev and Sinai. The
road to the settlement was paved
because dirt roads are easily
mined! The bus pulled off the
highway into a wooded area for a
picnic lunch. Israeli fried chicken
made us more appreciative of the
"Colonels" brand. However, it
was cool among the trees and we
all relaxed.
It was about this time that we
began to recognize the members
of our group and first names were
easily attached. Certainly the
friendships formed with fellow
mission members are one of the
delightful spin-offs of a Mission.
There were twenty-nine people on
our bus who soon became family.
I find it most remarkable that I
do not recall a single unpleasant
word or incident in the ten days
we were together.
We were all basically mo-
tivated in the same direction. We
had developed a community of
interest and appreciation of what
we saw and heard. The neat stop
was historic Safad. Safad occu-
pies a significant role in Jewish
history. The clear air, the relative
calm provided a haven for some
of the moat famous Hebrew
scholars. It is st Safad that en-
during works of Hebrew liters
ture and law were created, oin re-
cent years it has become an im-
portant artists colony. The
streets are hilly and ramblingm
bone could peer into galleries hht
exhibited items clearly designed
for the touriest tradem Here and
there were some lovelv, sensitive
works o art. Safad is an im-
portant road junction and had s
role in the War of Independencen
otxhe British had turned a police
station omer to the Araba, a
building that waa easily fortified
looked like a toy cannon, called a
"Davidka" at a gasoline truck.
The truck exploded.
The Arabs were convinced the
Jews had the "bomb" and fled
the police station. The Davidka is
prominently displayed in th<
town square.
Our drive to the Golan Heights
was through a beautiful valley.
Mike refussed to discuss the
Golan as he said one had to view
the terrain from above to grasp
the importance of this bit of terri-
tory. The Golan has been in the
news so often that to actually be
there was indeed exciting. When
we reached the summit and
looked down, we fully realized the
gallant effort required to scale
the slope and capture this vital
Syrian stronghold.
The Soviets had prepared the
defenses for the Syrians to a
point that they seemed impreg-
nable. There is one area that is so
steep that the Syrians felt it un-
necessary to fortify the slope. A
small force of Israeli paratroopers
scaled the height and routed a
large Syrian force. There is a lone
disabled tank and some battered
wire fortifications that are the
sole reminders of the fierce strug
gle and serve as a grim memorial
to the paratroopers who gave
their lives. Without their heroism
the villages and settlements in
the valley below would forever be
vulnerable to Syrian guns. We
stopped at the village of Ein Gev
for dates. Ein Gev is located
directly below the Golan, an easy
target. Ein Gev was not shelled
because the Syrians were so con-
fident of victory they wanted to |
take the village intact.
Oct. 14- Breakfast at 7:30 as
we had a long day ahead of us.
Lt. General Mota Gur addressed
us at breakfast. General Gur is a
member of the Knesset. The
general is broad-shouldered, dy-
namic and one felt that Israel is
indeed in capable hands.
General Gur's topic was
Egypt, as Sadat had just been
assassinated. The officer felt
Mubarak was his own man and
one had to wait to assess his ac-
General Gur had played a
prominent role in the military
success of Israel. One could sense
the unswerving determination to
protect his country.
After breakfast we visited a
paratrooper base. We were
greeted with orange juice and
honeycake. Israel will never be
defeated because its armed forces
are undernourished. One could
sense that there wss a Jewish
mother everywhere making sure
her brood was well fed. A trim
major escorted us to a training
area. Paratroopers are volun-
teers. This elite body of men are
of average height but very wiry
and had an air of quiet con-
The training regime we ob-
served were jumps from various
towers with emphasis on landing
Some young women partici-
pated in the exercise. These girls
are parachute packers and are
permitted to jump but not in
combat. Women are used in para-
chute packing. It is felt that
women are adept in the use of
their hands and are very con-
scious of their responsibility.
We followed our major to the
dining hall for lunch. Lunch con-
sisted of a number of courses. 1
hope the army fights first and
eats later. I presume the general
staff has taken Napoleon's re-
mark about an army not doing
well on an empty stomach seri-
The Mission took off for Yam it
in the Sinai. Yamit has frequent-
ly been in the international news,
as the surrender of this city
seemed to put into focus the
sacrifice Israel is making for
peace. The residents of Yamit
were being asked to give up their
homes, businesses and, most of
all, their roots in a lovely city.
Yamit has a shopping mall, a
the aspects of a thriving small
city. There were a large number
of children decorating their bicy-
cles for a parade. The town has a
beautiful beach. The people of
Yamit are being given compensa-
tion, but how does one fix com-
pensation for a dream?
We met a red-headed young
man from Brooklyn. The redhead
told us he had come to Yamit
with four hundred dollars. The
ex-Brooklynite now owned a
large restaurant and some real
estate. He was confident some-
thing would happen to about the
surrender, but he said it wist-
We questioned our guide as to
the fate of the city. Mike said
that, as the Israelis withdrew, the
city services of power and water
would be lost. He predicted the
city could crumble and the
Bedouins we saw on the outskirts
would move in.
We were all a bit depressed as a
result of our visit to Yamit. We
realized Israel was giving up the
nil and airbases of the Sinai, the
territory it needed for defense for
a scrap of paper. It is difficult to
reconcile this magnificent gesture
for peace with a world opinion

The Jewish Floridian of South County
Friday, Aprig 9,1962
Continued from Page ^
that characterizes Israel as an
Our mood changed as we pro-
ceeded north into the Negev. We
visited a thriving moshav. We
learned that a moshav differs
from a kibbutz in that it is an in-
dependently owned farm. The
owner of the moshav was a young
Canadian from Toronto. We
spoke to him of our recent visit to
Toronto and the lively pace of
Yorkville St. He grinned and said
he remembered it well, but this
was his new life. One could sense
his pride in his beautiful farm.
Flowers, tomatoes, peppers were
being irrigated by an ingenious
drip method that was making
every drop of water count. All
this was being created in a desert
that was given to Israel almost
contemptously by the ruling
powers when the tiny state was
created. A lovely young wife and
three small children added to his
happiness. The wife was from
London and as we were going to
London from Israel, we took a
letter to mail to her parents.
Sometime later when I gave
the concierge at the Mayfair the
letter to mail, I reflected how
privileged we were to share some-
thing with that great couple in
the Negev.
I believe if every would-be
contributor to the UJA would
visit these young people, observe
their determination to make the
Negev green, our campaign
would be a huge success. We
shook hands with this brave
couple and told them we appre-
ciated their sacrifices. They put
their arms about us and for a mo-
ment we indeed were one.
This evening we journey to
Beersheva. We are to have dinner
with the President of Ben Gurion
University. Our dinner in Beer-
sheva was the most glamorous
evening of the mission.
We entered a lovely home and
proceeded along a receiving line
that was impressive. A famous
Israeli heroine, Racquella,
greeted us. If you have not read
the book "Racquella," by all
means do so. The book describes
Racquella as beautiful as she is.
The book is not fictional but
could be. It describes the birth of
Israel thru Racquella's eyes and
deeds. The book is factual,
romantic and incredibly exciting.
Ben Gurion University with an
enrollment of five thousand
students is located in the Negev.
The University's prime purpose
is to develop the resources of the
desert. The Negev comprises
sixty-two percent of Israel's ter-
ritory. Its development is critical
in Israel's long range plans. The
University faculty acted as hosts.
We were seated with the student
dean, Yakov. Yakov is a sabra
whom we found to be very warm
and appreciative of our visit.
Yakov's wife is a young woman
whose parents came to Israel
from Morocco when she was six
months old. The dinner conver-
sation fairly sparkled. It was a
treat to be exposed to these en-
thusiastic young people. We lis-
tened to a lecture on the flora and
Fauna of the desert after dinner.
It had been a very long day
and I am afraid the lectures did
not get much attention. The
university President spoke brief-
ly and effectively. He is an im-
pressive figure, a general in the
Israeli army, had been in charge
of army intelligence and head of
the occupied territories. We were
happy to board the bus for Arad
and find any kind of bed.
Oct. 15- We had the usual
sumptuous breakfast at the
Morgoa Motel. We then pro-
ceeded on bus No. 2 (it had be-
come our second home) to the
Dead Sea. The descent from Arad
is on a torturous winding road
through very desolate country.
We passed Sodom, one can un-
derstand why Lot and his wife
took off. We were on our way to
Kin Bokeh and the Dead Sea.
Ein Bokeh is the site of Israel's
a mission diaay
potash works, an important in-
come producer. There is an ex-
hibit at Ein Bokeh of Israel's
planned sea to sea canal.
An engineer, Shlomo Drori,
gave a lecture on the canal
project. Shlomo's enthusiasm for
the project made it come alive.
He also has high hopes that Is-
rael's economic future will be
bright from the sale of fertilizers
and pesticides produced from
Dead Sea chemicals. Shlomo pre-
dicted a world food crisis in ten
years. Israeli fertilizers would
then be in demand similar to
Arab oil today.
Our next stop was at moshav
Ein Yohov. It was interesting to
see women go shopping in trac-
We stopped at Kibbutz Yahel
for lunch. This kibbutz was or-
ganized by some Reform Ameri-
can Jews, however the dietary
laws were observed. There was
kosher pizza and spaghetti for
lunch. We were shown slides of
various facets of kibbutz life by a
nineteen year old former resident
of I.archmont. Yahel is a well-
planned agricultural settlement.
The Negev is basically such a
bleak desert that the green fields
of Yahel are a dramatic state-
ment of what determination and
love for a country can produce.
Jordan is a short distance
away. There are bomb shelters
three stories deep. It seemed in-
congruous in this peaceful, quiet
community that life is so precari-
Our next stop was Eilat. We
were guests of the navy for din-
ner. Our hosts were naval officers
and their wives. The officers in
their smart uniforms supplied
some glamour and the meal was a
good one. We enjoyed the con-
versation. It was interesting to
get another viewpoint on Israel's
future. These bright young peo-
ple will help insure Israel's
viability as a nation. Eilat has
developed so rapidly that the air-
port is right downtown. One can
see the Jordanian airport nearby.
Oct. 16- Breakfast with Mike
Meltzer, one of Eilat's early de-
velopers. Mike believes in Eilat's
future as Israel's Miami Beach.
Excellent climate, superb
snorkoling all contribute to a fast
growing tourism industry. We
visited the underwater observa-
tory. It has been copied from the
Green Island observatory of
Australia's Great Barrier reef.
We had been to the one in
Australia, so we were able to
make a comparison.
The observatory of Eilat is in-
teresting but then nobody has
copied the Taj Mahal.
The Bedouins were selling
camel rides to the crowd at the
observatory. I was unable to per-
suade Elinor to get on a camel.
Lunch at the Moon Valley
hotel and then off to the airport.
Security was conducted by a
young lady who had been a din-
ner companion the night before.
The flight to Jerusalem was
forty-five minutes but rather un-
comfortable as the air condition-
ing consisted of a few tiny fans.
We landed at an airport that
formerly belonged to Jordan. Our
bus stopped at the gates of Jeru
salem. Guide Mike then told uc
what Jerusalem meant to him.
There was a tremor in his voice
and moisture in his eyes. I must
admit we all became somewhat
emotional as the impact of what
Jerusalem meant to Jews for
countless centuries struck home.
We then moved out of the bus
to a small park-like area. We
thanked God for bringing us to
Jerusalem in peace, we then said
the blessing and had some wine.
We were able to view a ceme-
tary that had been in existence
for twenty-five hundred years.
This cemetery had been vandal-
ized by the Jordanians during the
War of Independence. Israel was
carefully restoring this holy
ground in keeping with the
meticulous records that have
been maintained.
Certainly our roots are deep in
the soil of this cemetery. A
philosopher said that, after two
generations we no longer com-
ment on or recall people who had
once been apart of our daily lives.
Yet as we looked at this ancient
burial ground one's imagination
took over. We felt a closeness to
those that had gone before us.
We had a brief tour of Jeru-
salem that included Mt. Scopus
and the Hadassah Hospital, the
old buildings of Hebrew Univer-
sity, Mt. of Olives, the Church of
the Ascension. We entered the
approach to the Western Wall
thru the Dung Gate.
We all approached the Western
Wall with awe and trepidation.
The "Wall" was a new experience
for most of us. It is difficult to
explain why emotions run so
high, why the tears flow so easily
when one reaches the wall. Bruce
Warshal said it was mysticism. I
do not believe that there is a
ready explanation. Bruce held
Kabbalat Shabbat in an area that
was near the Wall. It was a beau-
tiful service, the most moving we
have ever attended. We were also
so stirred that there was much
embracing among the tour mem-
We believe Jews are never
quite the same after they have
been to Israel on a mission. The
experience of visiting the West-
ern Wall surely is the catalyst for
this change.
There is a security check at the
Western Wall, women's purses
are inspected. Men and women
are divided by a railing as they
approach the wall and pray
We then proceeded to the Jeru-
salem Hilton where we had excel-
lent quarters.
There was a lovely Shabbat
dinner. Major Areye Brown, chief
cantor of the IDF forces, sang for
us. Major Brown had a marvel-
ous voice. His son, however, stole
the show. This young man ap-
peared to be 0*5 about 260 lbs.
This giant moved around the
tables and encouraged all to lock
arms and sing. When Junior
pointed his finger at you and said
"sing," you sang.
Oct. 17 We first visited a
very large scale model of ancient
Jerusalem. Mike, our guide, used
this model to take us back two
thousand years so we could
visualize Jerusalem during the
era of the Temple in all its glory.
Thus we were well prepared to
visit the city that has been so
aptly described as the city of
gold. We entered Jerusalem
through the Jaffa gate. We
toured the Armenian guarter.
Narrow streets, really alleys, are
typical of the old city. The Jewish
section is in a process of restora-
tion. The Jordanian army had
destroyed many buildings and all
the synagogues. The Israeli
government has done a superb
job of reconstruction. We saw
many charming courtyards,
beautifally landscaped. The new
buildings retained the flavor and
architecture of old Jerusalem.
We then proceeded through the
Arab quarter along the historic
Via Dolorosa, I am sure moat
tourists find the crowded tiny
shops, the hordes of people el-
bowing their way along, their
first intimate contact with Arabs,
a memorable experience.
Oct. 18- This Sunday is one of
the most exciting and meaningful
days of the mission. We began
the morning with a visit to Yad
Vashem. A notable difference be-
tween a typical tour of an area as
opposed to mission participation
is the in-depth treatment of an
event or area.
As an illustration when we
visited Yad Vashem, we attended
a lecture by Prnhsatir Yahuda
Bauer on the Holocaust. Prof.
Bauer pointed out that every
Jewish community in the world
was losing population except Is-
We viewed the shocking dis-
plays in silence so intense, we
were so moved, that subsequent
discussions never took place. A
Yizkor service followed. The
darkened chapel is fitfully illu-
minated by a flickering eternal
flame. Grief was apparent on the
faces of the mourners still
shocked from what they had
seen. The military cemetery on
Mt. Hertzel was the next stop. To
wander through the cemetery is
simply to reaffirm the utter waste
of war. The headstones are simple
but ever so eloquent. The ages of
the fallen in many cases were
seventeen and eighteen. Israel
has buried her dead with dignity.
Since our next objective was
Masada, we looked forward to
lunch with Yigdal Yadin. Many
of us had read his famous book on
Yadin was unable to be with us
as he had to attend Moshe
Dayan's funeral.
Moshe Dayan had requested a
low key funeral, but his position
in the history of the State of Is-
rael is so significant we were sur-
prised that the government did
not honor the occasion appropri-
ately. Our drive to Masada was
interrupted by a stop at Ein Gedi
on the Dead Sea. This is a holiday
weekend and the resort is very
We waded gingerly over some
rocks so we could say we had
been in the Dead Sea! We arrived
at Masada at four p.m. The
Romans would have appreciated
the cable car that took us most of
the way up. The final ascent is
seventy-three steps. Herod had
selected what looked like an im-
pregnable site for his castle. Mike
was at his best when he related
the history of Masada. We sat on
stones that had once formed the
walls as we listened to Mike. We
learned of the ingenious method
of storing water, the huge
granaries, the Roman baths. One
could look down into the valleys
far below and imagine the feel-
ings of the Zealots as they saw
Romans in every direction. It was
difficult to believe that we were
standing in a place from which
the Zealots observed the deadly
implication of Roman campfires
flickering in the night.
The siege of Masada took place
in 70 A.D.
As the sun set, there was an
impressive rededication service in
the ruin that was the ancient
synagogue of Masada. Somebody
played a guitar, there were songs.
The light faded, there was a long
moment of silence.
We walked down from Masada
carrying torches. The narrow
rocky path was illuminated at the
most treacherous curves by
flares. It was a memorable sight,
even more impressive when we
reached the plain and could look
back up the mountain to the long
row of torches, birght against the
We thought the walk down at
night a bit risky, but all went
well. In retrospect, it was a thrill-
ing experience none of us would
have missed.
We were exhilarated but ex-
hausted as we climbed into the
bus. Chaim. our driver, had a dif-
ficult time keeping the bus on
even keel as the road twisted
through the rolling countryside.
Suddenly there was a camel
silouetted against the moonlight.
The late drive back to Jeru-
salem went quietly as the tour
members entertained with songs
and comedy over the bus micro-
Margie Baer used the micro-
phone to make a stirring speech
about the responsibility of the
mission members to relate what
they had seen and work for the
cause. Margie spoke with great
sensitivity and deserves a very
special paragraph.
Oct.19- This is a com-
paratively relaxing day. The
morning was devoted to a field
study of a Project Renewal pro-
gram at Hod Hasharon. We
spent the afternoon on a leisurely
walking tout in the old city. It
was a lovely sunny day. We
asked for directions several times
and found some young people
who responded pleasantly and
We had lunch at a tiny cafe-
teria that had a wonderful view.
We visited a shop where we
made our major purchases. We
bought a mezzuza made of Jeru-
salem stone and a beautiful
medallion of "two thousand year .
old Roman glass."
There is an excellent artist
named Mutz in this area. We.
wanted to make a purchase but.
she properly advised us that the
object was too heavy to carry.
We had a fine Swiss dinner at
the hotel.
Oct. 20- SimchatTorah
There was a group meeting af-
ter breakfast. This get-together
was the emotional highlight of
the mission.
Some of the members an-
nounced their pledge--. We all
agreed that the mission was one
of the major events of our lives.
There were tears and some sad-
ness as we were winding down
our exposure to a manificent
We then visited the Israeli
Museum, the Billy Rose Sculp-
ture garden and the Dead Sea
Scrolls. The building housing the
scrolls is dome shaped to resem-
ble the urn in which the scrolls
were found.
This dome was etched in spec-
tacular fashion against a bright
blue sky.
The actual exhibits of the
scrolls are magnificent: One has
to marvel that all this took place
because a shepherd boy stumbled
into a remote cave.
We who represent the present
were suddenly immersed in the
ancient history of our ancestors.
Federation President Jim Baer
and our Executive Director
Rabbi Bruce Warshal served as
our mentors, held our hands and
never stopped counting to make
sure we were all on the bus.
Lynne Warshal kept us going
when we were a bit tired with her
spirit and songs. We too were
Jews in Israel for ten days. How
can we let our fellow Jews down?
