Shultz's comment was made in

it would be "impractical" to

Shultz said that the U.S. posi-

with what President Reagan said

test against a cartoon of former U.S. Secretary of
jte Henry Kissinger which carried a caption,
Kistrated Jewboy Responsible for United States
[tral American Policy."
The cartoon, by Frits Mueller, appeared after
sident Reagan named Kissinger to chair the National
tisan Commission on Central America. In an earlier
son, Mueller depicted Kissinger as a very ugly Jew.
Several letter writers, both Jews and non-Jews,
tested against the description of Kissinger as a

clude reference to the acts of gen-

that copies of this resolution be
sent to the Premiers and leaders
of opposition parties in all 10 pro-
vinces of Canada as well as to the
ministers of education in the pro-
vinces and territories.
THIS RESOLUTION was
seen by some observers as an al-
lusion to what has become known
as the Keegstra affair in Eckville,
Alberta. James Keegstra, a
teacher in the town of Eckville, of
which he is also Mayor, has been
instructing his students that the
mass extermination of Jews
during the war was a highly
exaggerated story part of an
international Jewish conspiracy.
The Anglican's commitment to
combat anti-Semitism was em-
phasized in a letter to Rabbi
Robert Sternberg, director of the
national religious department of
the Canadian Jewish Congress,
by the Rev. Brian Prideax, ecu-
menical officer of the Anglican
Church. Prideaux wrote:
"It is shameful that such
statements (the resolutions)
should still be necessary, but we
want to assure the Jewish com-
munity in Canada of our whole-
hearted support against bigotry
and racism in our society."

JNF Official Predicts Israel
As Mideast's 'Granary' in Year 2000
JEWELER-GEMO LOG I ST
IN DELRAY BEACH I
NEW YORK (JTA) A
vision of Israel in the year 2000
as the granary of the Middle
East, thanks to the revolutionary
use of desert conditions and
extensive land reclamation for
agriculture, was projected here
by Dr. Samuel Cohen, executive
vice president of the Jewish Na-
tional Fund of America.
In a report issued to more than
100 JNF national and regional
executives attending an annual
fundraising conference here,
Cohen stated that by 2000, Israel
will be well on its way to
becoming an "economically inde-
pendent oasis of peace."
Citing the extensive land-
reclamation achievements of the
JN F, which will be 99 years old in
the year 2000, Cohen based
himself on current statistics and
trends. He predicted that by 2000
over 235 million trees throughout
Israel will have been planted,
adding to the cover of green and
network of forests now dotting
the country. JNF's afforestation
program has until now been
responsible for the planting of
160 million trees. Planting conti-
nues apace at the rate of almost
five million trees a year, Cohen
He pointed out that the JNF
land reclamation programs,
which prepare desert and rocky
terrain for agricultural and
settlement use, as well as con-
serve woodlands and wilderness
areas, have as of this year
reclaimed 40,000 acres. Cohen
projected that an additional
100,000 acres will be reclaimed in
the next 17 years.
Stating that JNF is now in-
volved in Israel in more projects
and programs than at any other
time in its eight-decade history,
Cohen said that in addition to
afforestation and land
reclamation, JNF continues to
clear the way for access roads
linking settlements in Galilee, the
Negev, and Arava. As of 1983, he
said, more than 6,000 kilometers
of roads have been paved by JNF
engineers. An additional 2,000
kilometers of roads will be
completed by 2000.
"A key aspect of JNF work,"
Cohen told the JNF fundraisers,
representing 40 regional offices of
the nationwide organization, "is
settlement site preparation. This
includes leveling and grading soil
and'creating the infrastructure
for construction. As of 1983, JNF
has prepared the land for almost
1.000 communities and popula-
tion centers throughout Israel.
Tht accelerated pace in the next
17 years will achieve an addi-
tional 1,600 sites prepared for
In recent years, Cohen noted,
JNF has, in cooperation with
other government agencies, been
responsible for developing new
recreation and camping areas. In
the next decade and a half, some
60 new parks and 200 camping
grounds will be developed by
JNF, many of them adjacent to
existing JNF forests.
"Perhaps no area," Cohen
concluded, "holds greater
promise for Israel's future
development and growth than
the vast Negev desert."
There, he continued, "JNF is
involved in agricultural and
environmental research projects
that utilize desert characteristics,
such as abundant sunlight and
geo-thermal water, and economic
irrigation methods to improve
agricultural yield and the quality
of life in this region of severe
The JNF, Cohen said, is
working with other scientists in
following up advancements made
in solar energy, preparing ponds
for growing sea food, perfecting
hot houses and using saline water
for plants and crops exported
"JNF has created the basis for
a Negev that is becoming the
winter vegetable basket of Euro-
pe," Cohen declared. "JNF's
involvement in all these
promising advances should help
Israel become the granary of the
Mideast and a viable, econo-
mically independent oasis of
peace by the year 2000."

than 500 Israel Bond leaders,

ipants to come to Israel, are

Abu-Hatzeira's family expressed
their displeasure at the verdict
and denounced the media.
Tussiah-Cohen expressed sur-
prise at the ruling. The former
minister said he was not
"shaken" by the decision.
Tami leaders held a meeting
here and made two decisions:
one, to rally behind Abu-Hatzeira
as the party chairman, pledging
to have him lead the movement
for the municipal elections three

Tami would demand an indepen-

the police throughout the entire

activities in office which led to
the indictments. Abu-Hatzeira
charged at the time he was
treated unfairly by the police.

that a Knesset member should go

U.S. Charges that PLO is 'Active Ally'
Of Central American Revolutionaries
By RIFKA ROSENWEIN
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Reagan Administration has
charged that the Palestine Liber-
ation Organization "is an active
ally of Communist revolution-
aries throughout Central
America." This charge was
contained in an issue of the White
House Digest, a service provided
by the White House Office of
Media Relations and Planning.
According to the Digest, the
PLO is supplying training and
material to the Sandinista
government in Nicaragua and to
the anti-government guerrillas in
El Salvador. The report noted
that, "since being introduced to
the region by (Cuban President
Fidel) Castro, the PLO has
developed ties with revolutionary
groups in nearly half the coun-
tries in the region."
At the same time, the San-
dinistas were fighting alongside
the PLO in the Middle East as
early as 1970, according to the
report. The Digest emphasized
that neither side has denied the
link between them, and it cited
statements issued by Latin
American and PLO leaders.
"There is longstanding blood
unity between us and the Pales-
tinians," Sandinista press
spokesman Jorge Mandi said in
June, 1979, shortly before the
Sandinistas came to power.
"Many of the units belonging to
the Sandinista movements were
at Palestinian revolutionary
bases in Jordan.
"In the early 1970's, Nicaraguan
and Palestinian blood was spilled
together in Amman and in other
places during the Black Septem-
ber battles. It is natural,
therefore, that in our war against
(President Anastasio) Somoza,
we received Palestinian aid for
our revolution in various forms."
Mandi also made it clear that
the Sandinistas had participated
in PLO terrorist acts such as
hijackings, according to the
Digest. In 1980, PLO Chief Yasir
Arafat told the Sandinistas while
he was in Managua: "The links
between us are not new; your
comrades did not come to our
country just to train, but to fight.
Your enemies are our enemies,"
the Digest reported.
The Digest explained that the
PLO was introduced to the region
in 1966, when Castro sponsored
the First Conference of the
Organization of Solidarity of the
Peoples of Asia, Africa, and
Latin America. PLO representa-
tives attended the conference,
according to the report, and
Castro "began efforts to make
the PLO a part of international
especially in Latin America."
By the late 1960's, Cuban and
PLO officers were training
together in the Soviet Union and
assisting each other with military
and intelligence personnel. In
1972, Castro met with PLO
leaders in Algeria, and the two
sides agreed to step up their joint
activities, the Digest said. In
1973, Cuba broke relations with
Israel and in 1974, the PLO
opened its first Latin American
office in Havana.

Herzpg's Unwelcome Position
Israel's President Chaim Her2x>g recently
told the 22nd International Conference of
the World Union of Progressive Judaism
that while world Jewry has a legitimate
right to express its views on Israeli actions
and policies, they should keep those
discussions within the confines of Jewish
Behind President Herzog's logic was his
warning that advice and criticism are
legitimate, but they must be given "under
the prior understanding that the final
decision rests with those who have to bear
the consequences of any political or
military decision." Meaning, of course,
Israel and Israelis.
In essence, what President Herzog said
was that, if you don't pay any taxes in
Israel, then you have nothing to say.
The fact is that what Israel does also
affects Jews outside of Israel. Remember
the intensity of the AWACS debate of 1982
and the backwash of some pretty vile anti-
Semitic stuff emanating from as high up as
the White House itself? Who took the
brunt of it but American Jewry?
We can point to the settlements issue
and to the West Bank itself as further
examples of the relationship between the
Israeli and American Jewish communities.
And need we mention the war in Lebanon,
itself? What one does, affects the other, and
there is no doubt about it.
And so President Herzog's position was
somewhat arbitrary, we believe, and un-
welcome. The right of the Jewish people
everywhere to have their opinions heard
must stand unchallenged.

April-June, 1983: the second highest quarterly
profit in American Savings history.
Through management planning, operational efficiencies
and acquisitions... American Savings has dramatically
reversed a $13 million loss for fiscal 1982 into a $9.5 million
profit for the first nine months of fiscal 1983. For the third
quarter (April-June, 1983), net income was $6.1 million.
These results continue the positive earning trend at
American Savings and underscore management
achievement of balanced growth, impiovedciistorner service
and a stronger market position.
Diversification: a significant contribution to

Camp Maccabee Says
A Message From Susan Kerper, Camp Director
The third season of Camp
Maccabee has ended. I can still
envision all of the smiling faces of
119 happy children that ex-
perienced many wonderful activi-
ties and events throughout the
summer. There is no doubt our
children had a wonderful sum-
mer, having grown physically,
emotionally and socially. They
had the opportunity to experien-
ce many new activities at Camp
this year: archery; gymnastics,
three successful overnights, our
first play on our final day, Yeru-
shalayim Day, "Gamad and
Anak Day," Disney film, Pillo
Polo, Clown Day with real clowns
and our own staff magician.
These new experiences combined
with our full-day camp activities
and Judaic program created an 8
week fun-filled summer. Now. it is
time to plan for our 1964 "Better
Than Ever Year."
Looking forward to seeing you
next year for more great activi-
ties with another helpful and
caring staff under the sponsor-
ship of the South County Jewish
Federation and the new Jewish
New Automobile Air Conditioning
System Designed At Tel Aviv University
A new automobile air con-
ditioning system has beei
designed and developed by Tel
Aviv University scientist Prof.
Mordechai Sokolov, which
utilizes the heat generated and
presently wasted by the car,
without requiring additional
energy and expense for fueling
and with no strain on the motor.
Today, only about one third of
the fuel burnt by an automobile is
utilized for powering the motor to
turn the wheels, while two thirds
of the fuel is wasted. Approxi-
mately one third of the energy is
expended through the exhaust
system, while the other third is
| expended on cooling the motor.
Conventional air conditioning
used today in automobiles does
not take advantage of the wasted
neat, requires additional power
and thereby increases the car fuel
| consumption by 10-20 percent. It
also places a greater strain on the
motor which is beyond the capa-
city of small cars, and as a result
small cars cannot be air con-
The system developed by Prof.
Sokolov of the Faculty of
Engineering utilises an

Friday, August 19, iggg
Rabbi Nathan Zelizer
The following is brought to Floridian readers by the South
County Rabbinical Association. If there are topics you would
like our Rabbis to discuss, please submit them to the Floridian.
LOST AND FOUND
A little boy wandered away and was lost Scores of people set
out to search the hillsides and wooded areas nearby to find that
lost child. This story comes to my mind during this time in our
calendar when, in a few weeks, so many of our people will find
their way, to the temple and to the synagogue, in order to find
their way. The High Holidays serve as a compass, to help us get
our bearings and find our directions. To know where we are, we
need not only a compass, we also need other devices.
The compass helps us locate ourselves in space; we also need a
clock and a calendar, to help us locate ourselves in time. Often
we wake up from a long deep sleep and do not know how much
time has passed. The first question we ask upon waking is.
''What time is it?" When Robinson Crusoe landed on a desert
island, he was afraid that he would lose his sense of time, so he
set up a post and, as each day dawned, he cut a notch in the post.
Every seventh notch he rested. Thus, he kept a calendar.
We also need another device. The compass keeps us from
getting lost in space. The calendar keeps us from getting lost in
time. We also need some device, which will set us straight, in our
relationship to other human beings, to live also in a world of
persons, in addition to a world of space and time. So, not to get
lost in the world of persons, we need help and direction in the
matter of right and wrong. In Judaism, Jewish law and mitzvohs
provide us with guide lines, which steer us in the realm of human
relationships. Through prayer, study, special ceremonials, such
as the Shofar, the melodies, the Kol Hashem the Voice of God
serves as a kind of compass, to keep us from getting lost in
the maze of human problems. There are times when a compass
can be deflected and lose its value.
As a Jewish chaplain at the Ohio Penitentiary for a quarter of
a century, I counseled with hundreds of criminals from all walks
of life, human beings who, among them had fine parents, good
beginnings, high school and college graduates, yet were lost on
the sea of life and spent time behind bars. Their lives became
defiled by deflections and deviations which caused them to lose
Many times, 1 told these men that God cannot reach down
from heaven to us straight. We must go to Him to set our
"neddle" straight The Bible tells us (Exodus 19,20) "And God
descended to lit Sinai and Moses went up to the top." The
Mechilta on this sentence says "God said to Moses I shall come
to you from above and you will ascent." The pen in my
penitentiary congregation failed to ascend the mountain of the
The purpose of the month of Elul is to prepare ourselves to
seek God's help in re-directingour lives, and ask Him to teach us
how to use the gifts of life, how to use our wealth, how to spend
our days, how to love and live by abiding values. Where, but in
the synagogue, can we find the compass and provide ourselves
with devices that will not deflect the needle of that compass, thus
causing us to travel in circles and get lost on the sea of life. God
stretches his hand and wants us to stretch out our hands to get as
close to Him as possible.
In the Sist ine Chapel in Rome there is the great painting of
Michaelangelo, portraying the moment of the creation of Adam.
God is presented as a human figure, stretching forth His hand to
Adam, seeking to rise from the ground. From the Divine finger
comes a spark from which life is transferred to Adam's finger
and to his mortal flesh. It is a thrilling portrayal of the surge of
life which comes from God. The fingers never touch. There is a
gap, between the divine and the human.
During the year, many deflections widen the gap between God
and ourselves. During the High Holidays through repentance,
prayer and charity, we narrow the gap between the finger of God
and the mortal flesh of our body and as the Shofar is sounded at
the end of Yom Kippur, we can almost feel the flush of new life,
new hope and new purpose vivifying our flesh, giving us new
strength and proper direction for the good life.

AJC: Religious Clubs in School Unconstitutional
Congressional legislation that
would permit student religious
clubs to use public school faci-
lities was sharply criticized by an
American Jewish Congress
spokesman in Senate testimony.
Marc Pearl, Washington rep-
resentative of AJCongress, told
the Senate Judiciary Committee
that passage of the bill, S. 1059,
would lead to "inevitable pres-
sure" on school children "to
conform to the religious views
and practices of the majority."
"I am not here to urge any
limitation on the right of a reli-
gious majority to observe its reli-
gion," Pearl said. "Rather, the
American Jewish Congress asks
only that the public schools not
be employed to magnify the pres-
sures on students of minority
The legislation, Pearl con-
tended, is unconstitutional
because it is imcompatible with
the principle of separation of
church and state as mandated by
the Establishment Clause of the
S. 1059 says that no federal
education funds may be provided
to any state or local educational
agency if any elementary or
secondary school for which that
agency has responsibility denies
equal access to students or facul-
ty seeking to engage in voluntary
The AJCongress is especially
troubled by the provision in-
cluded in the bill for the "right"
of equal access in elementary
schools, according to Pearl.
"Although the bill extends only
to voluntary activities, it is diffi-
cult for us to conceive of any
circumstances under which
elementary students would be
able to voluntarily organize their
own group without the guidance
of a teacher," Pearl said. "But it

7000 In Six Months To Israel
The Jewish Floridian of South County
New Immigrants Present
By CINDY KAYE
__ It is said that "good al-
irays comes with bad."
This is the case in Israel in
recent months as olim have
been arriving here in large
from Western countries.
The difficulty in housing
some 7,000 new immigrants
who came here over the last
six months accompanies
the surge in aliya.
According to Ilan Rubin,
deputy director general of the
Jewish Agency's alrye depart
meat, aliya is up over-all by 23
percent so far this year compared
to last year. "The absorption
centers are practically 100 per-
cent full, taking into account the
reserved places slated to be filled
during the very near future by
expected olim," Rubin said.
THE HOUSING problem is a
recent one. It is a combination of
the dramatic turn around in aliya
during the first hall of this year
aliya was up 50 percent from
the West but the drop in the
number of olim from the Soviet
Union and other Eastern bloc
countries has tended to bring
down the significance in the
overall rise in the number of olim
- and the fact that approxi-
mately 20 -absorption centers
were closed for the last three
years because there was no need
for such facilities while relatively
few immigrants arrived here.
"The closed centers along the
periphery of the country, such as
those in Dimona and Maalot,
which might possibly be reopen-
ed, are unattractive to olim and
therefore do not help us," said
Hub in. "The absorption centers
belong to the Ministry of
Housing. When they were not
heing filled, the ministry
demanded them back and now
they are being used for other pur-
poses, such as student housing
centers, residential flats and
other forms of public housing."
Rubin noted that in Kiryat
Shemona. the absorption center
was placed under the army's ju-
risdiction. As a result, these
buildings are no longer available
to be reverted back into absorp-
RUBIN EXPLAINED that
since Jewish Agency funds are
"too tight to be able to invest in
building," that is not an option.
Another situation which exacer-
bates the shortage of space in ab-
sorption centers is the shortage
of low rental public housing.
"Olim are supposed to leave
the absorption centers after six
months which is the approxi-
mate amount of time it takes to
absorb them," Rubin said. "By
then many have found work and
have completed the ulpan
(Hebrew study). But the number
of olim leaving after six months
has decreased because public
housing is not readily available."
Presently, the average stay in
an absorption center is one year.
A small percentage of olim have
even stayed as long as two years.
In addition to the shortage of
housing, some olim remain be-
cause it is so inexpensive to live
in any of the immigrant housing
A family of four, in a three-
room apartment in an absorption
center pays close to nothing, "a
mere token," as Rubin put it.
After that, if no member of the
family has found work during the
next six months, rent amounts to
$30 a month. If one family
member has found work, rent in-
creases to $100 a month or 25
percent of the incoming salary,
depending on which is lower.
TEMPORARY hostels, which
are absorption centers which do
not include Hebrew courses for
their occupants, are slightly more
expensive. Rent starts at the be-
ginning of the immigrant's stay
comparable to a non-employed
family's costs in an absorption
center during the second six-
month period of their stay. After
three months in a hostel em-
ployed occupants are obligated to
pay 25 percent of their salaries
Permanent residences for olim
also exist. There are 3,500 places
available, and they are filled to
capacity, not to mention the ex-
tensive waiting list which accom-
panies this option.
Olim pay a modest rent and are
entitled to remain in these apart-
ments for an indefinite period of
time. In addition, they are per-
mitted to bring spouses into the
apartments, only after they have
children are they expected to

In all, there are 72 centers
available to olim, 30 absorption
centers, 11 hostels, and 31 per-
manent residences. The budget
alloted to operating these facili-
ties is S20 million a year. This
money covers staff salaries in the
faculties, such as ulpan teachers
(where applicable) maintenance,
rental costs and utilities.
THE ALIYA department has
indicated the need for increased
housing facilities to the Housing
Industry. This request came after
the aliya department raised the
rents of olim who remain in
centers and are employed. The
Housing Ministry, headed by
Deputy Prime Minister David
Levy, would rather olim pur-
chased apartments with the aid
of extensive loans, rather than
living in public housing, Rubin
The problem with this idea is
that a gap still exists between the
loans provided and the amount of
capital the immigrant must sup-
ply, Rubin said. In addition, in-
terest costs run approximately
$200 a month on a full-scale loan.
"There are around 1,000 unsold
apartments in Jerusalem which
will eventually be turned over to
the government because they
cannot be sold by private
builders," Rubin said. "These
could be reverted into public
housing units. In addition, we
suggested that olim pay a higher
rate than the welfare recipients
who are also entitled to this
Meanwhile, Rafael Kotlowitz,
head of the WZO immigration
and absorption department, pre-
dicted that some 13,000 immi-
grants from the West are expect-
ed to arrive in Israel by the end of
the year, a record high since 1974.
But he warned that without
proper housing, immigration
might once again decline.
IN ADDITION to the over-
crowded conditions in the ab-
sorption centers and other
transition institutions, Kotlowitz
noted that because of pressure on
aliya offices overseas, potential
immigrants sometimes must wait
up to two weeks before they can
be seen by aliya officials.
According to Kotlowitz, the
breakdown in immigration from
the West this year will be: North
America, 4,200; Latin America,
3,800; France, 2,300; United
Kingdom, 1,500; and another
1,700 from other Western coun-
tries. Kotlowitz said he abo ex-
pected some 5,000 immigrants
from the East bloc and Third
World countries, 1,900 from
Rumania, 500 from the Soviet
Union, and 1,500 from Africa.
