Furor Everywhere
State Dep't. Denies 'Secret I -
Begun Trial Ends in 12-Year Sentence Deal' With Syria on PLO
By JTA Services
Israelis, American Jews
and others from all walks of
life angrily condemned the
maximum sentence im-
posed on Soviet Jewish ac-
tivist Iosif Begun by a
court in Vladimir Oct. 14
after a three-day trial.
Begun, a 51-year-old engineer
and unofficial teacher of Hebrew
in Moscow where such activity
is banned was sentenced to
seven years imprisonment to be
followed by five years of internal
exile. He had been charged with
"anti-Soviet" activities.
The U.S. State Department
expressed the official American
protest in a statement that
referred to Begun's trial as the
cutting edge of a "new wave of
repression" in the USSR and an
"increase in officially sanctioned
The Israeli government issued
an official statement after Sun-
day's Cabinet meeting denounc-
ing the Soviet policy of discrimi-
nation against Jews.
IT APPEALED to all nations
of the world and lovers of free-
dom to appeal to the Soviet gov-
ernment to overturn the sentence
and to allow Begun and other
Jews to leave the Soviet Union
for Israel. The Foreign Ministry
in Jerusalem instructed Israeli
embassies abroad to urge their
host governments to bring pres-
sure to bear on Moscow for Be-
gun's release.
Education Minister Zevulun
Hammer issued a separate appeal
to his counterparts in other coun-
tries and to teachers and academ-
icians everywhere to protest the
sentence. He also instructed
teachers in Israel to talk to their
pupils about Begun and his
struggle to emigrate to Israel and
his efforts to teach Hebrew in the
Soviet Union.
Fourteen former Prisoners of
Conscience who had been jailed in
the USSR and now reside in
Israel staged a protest outside
the Russian Church in Jerusalem.
A major protest demonstration
has been scheduled for Oct. 18
outside the Knesset building.
Legal circles in Israel and the Bar
Association called on lawyers
abroad to protest "this travesty
of justice."
Begun, who had long sought in
vain for permission to emigrate,
has been a special target of the
Soviet authorities and KGB har-
assment. He was first arrested on
March 3. 1977, charged with
"parasitism, "having lost his job
at the Moscow Central Research
Institute years before when he
first applied for an exit visa.
HE WAS tried in June. 1977
and sentenced to two years of
internal exile which he spent in
the remote city of Magadan. He
completed his sentence in Feb-
ruary, 1978 but was arrested in
June and senteced to three more
years in Magadan. He returned in
August 1980.
On November 6, 1982, he was
arrested a third time and charged
with "anti-Soviet agitation and
propaganda." He was reportedly
held in solitary confinement for
most of the time until his trial
opened Oct. 19.
The possible sentences were 2-3
years' internal exile or seven
years in prison plus five years'
j internal exile. He drew the
Avraham Harman, chairman
of the Israel Public Committee
for Soviet Jewry, said, "The
Soviet Union is making a grave
mistake if it thinks that by this
verdict Iosif Begun will be for-
gotten. We vow that we will
protest on his behalf every single
day" against this "malicious and
evil" sentence.
HISTADRUT Secretary Gen-
eral Yeruham Meshel asked the
International Federation of Free
Trade Unions to intervene on Be-
gun's behalf. Leon Dulzin, chair-
man of the Jewish Agency and
World Zionist Organization Ex-
ecutive, called the sentence
Begun was guilty only of
teaching Hebrew and seeking to
return to his ancestral homeland,
Dulzin said. Science Minister
Yuval Neeman appealed to
Amnesty International, the orga-
nization that seeks to help politi-
cal prisoners everywhere, to help
seek Begun's release.
In New York, Morris Abram,
chairman of the National Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry (NCSJ),
noted that this was the third trial
of Begun. "The real offense which
Begun committed is the attempt
to teach and foster a 5,000 year-
old language and literature of
which has furnished the world
with moral insight and great
beauty Hebrew. His treatment
is another horrible example of
Soviet inhumanity to man and
disrespect for the decent opinion
of mankind." Abram said.
unofficial teacher of Hebrew in
Moscow, who is now in Israel,
spoke of Begun at a rally at the
Western Wall in Jerusalem or-
ganized by the Israel branch of
the Student Struggle for Soviet
Jewry (SSSJ). Eskin, a close
friend of Begun, recalling the
silence during the Holocaust,
urged the free world to cease
trade with the Soviet Union.
At the Hebrew University in
Jerusalem, professors and re-
searchers in Russian culture and
language, called on "our col-
leagues around the world to
join" their call to release Begun
with permission to emigrate to
Israel and to make possible free
Jewish culture in the USSR.
Anti-Israel Tendencies
Noted in Nicaragua
(JTA) In a report to the
World Jewish Congress on
his visit to Managua, Nica-
ragua, a prominent Latin
American Jewish intellec-
tual found "definite anti-
Israel tendencies" in the
country but did not observe
"any anti-Semitic ac-
Rabbi Heszel Klepfisz of
Panama City, winner of the 1981
prize for Jewish intellectual merit
presented by the Latin American
branch of the WJC, spent four
days in Managua late last month.
He had been invited by the in-
ternational congress of members
of Catholic religious orders to lec-
ture on the subject of social jus-
tice in the Jewish tradition and
had used the occasion to become
acquainted with the Jewish
Klepfisz noted that there were
currently three Jewish families
living in Managua, the rest
having left for other countries,
although some of them still main-
tain businesses in Nicaragua
and come on frequent visits.
"'Only the businesses and houses
of those who had commercial re-
lations with the dictator Somoza
were confiscated," he said.
The synagogue building in
Managua, according to the re-
port, is in the hands of the gov-
ernment which moved a Sandi-
nista youth organization into it.
Klepfisz noted that the Jewish
community had moved the holy
scrolls to Miami some years
earlier, during the street fighting.
He reported that representa-
tives of the government had
authorized him to inform the
Jewish community that the gov-
ernment is prepared to return the
building so that the synagogue
and religious services can be re-
inaugurated. Senior members of
the Sandinista government of-
fered to participate in the
KLEPFISZ relayed the gov-
ernmental message to the few
Jews living in Nicaragua, to
which the reply was: "Do you
really think it's worthwhile to
keep up a synagogue for three
Reporting that he had not ob-
served any anti-Semitic activity
in the country, Klepfisz added
that both the government and
the human rights committee
operating there on behalf of the
United Nations assured him that
"there is no anti-Semitism in
He pointed out, however, that
from private conversations and
from the media he found "definite
anti-Israel tendencies which were
repeatedly justified by Israeli
arms sales to Somoza and Israel's
friendly relations with El Sal-
vador and Honduras." He con-
firmed that there is a PLO office
functioning in Managua.
Poland in 1912, obtained his rab-
binical ordination in Warsaw in
1930. his PhD at the University
of Warsaw in 1934 and his LitD
in Zurich in 1936. Prior to settl-
ing in Panama in 1981, he served
as a rabbi in Warsaw and in the
Netherlands, was a professor at
the Glasgow Hebrew College and
at the Miami Jewish College. He
was the head of Panama's Albert
Einstein School from 1961-1978
and a professor at the University
of Panama from 1963-1978.

"Our Chicken 1$ (he Answer If You An Watching Your Weight
No Greese, Not Fried, All the Flavor Seeled inside"
9819 S. Military Trail, Boynton Beach
734-8211 Mon.-Sat. 10 am-7 pm
(JTA) The State De-
partment has denied that
there was any "secret deal"
between the U.S. and Syria
in which the Syrians would
keep the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization out of the
Shouf mountains in
But State Department spokes-
man John Hughes indicated that
the U.S. would not be displeased
if the Syrians were able to ac-
complish this. "Obviously, we
favor the removal of tbs PLO
from Lebanon by any means that
can be achieved, as we favor the
departure of the Syrians and Is-
raelis," he said.
THE REPORTED deal, ac-
cording to a syndicated column
by Rowland Evans and Robert
Novak published in The Wash-
ington Post, would be aimed at a
Syriar. guarantee of Israel's
northern borders. However, the
Syrian drive now to push out the
P1J0 is seen here as part of the ef-
fort by President Hafez Assad to
gain control over Yasir Arafat's
Hughes' remarks were made
after he labeled "incorrect" the
Evans and Novak column which
said Secretary of State George
Shultz was trying to "undercut"
the U.S.-Syrian deal in a dispute
with National Security Adviser
William Clark.
The column claimed that
Shultz considered both Clark and
his deputy, Robert McFarlane,
who is President Reagan's special
envoy in Lebanon, as being "pro-
Arab" and that Shultz had made
a "public outburst" about
Clark's trip to Rome Oct. 1 to
confer with McFarlane.
HUGHES SAID that Shultz
had never discussed his feelings
about Clark's trip with anyone,
publicly or privately. He said the
Secretary viewed the Evans and
Novak column today with
"sorrow" rather than anger be-
cause he saw it as another
example of a "factually incorrect
and gossipy column" which helps
to "sow the seeds" of "discord"
within the Administration.
The State Department spokes-
man noted that McFarlane
"worked closely" with the State
Department and was in daily
telephone contact with Depart-
ment officials. Shultz and Pres-
ident Reagan are in "total co-
ordination" on the Middle East
policy, Hughes stressed.
He noted that the U.S. has
pointed out that Syria has
"interests" in Lebanon but it was
being "unhelpful" in the current
situation there. He also pointed
to Reagan's radio address last
Saturday which strongly at-
tacked Syria for receiving large
arms supplies from the Soviet
Union and for refusing to with-
draw from Lebanon after it had
promised to do so once Israel
agreed to leave.
Nobel Laureate McClintock
Wins Wolf Foundation Award
TEL AVIV (JTA) Dr. Barbara McClintock, the
winner of the 1983 Nobel Prize for medicine, was the
recipient of the Israeli Wolf Foundation Prize in 1981. The
81-year-old biologist from Cold Spring Harbor, Long
Island, N.Y., received the $100,000 Wolf Award for her
discovery that genes can move from one spot to another
on the chromosomes of a plant and change the future
generations of plants it produces. This discovery also led
to her winning the Nobel Prize.

No Suspension
For Abu Hatzeira
House Committee decided not to
suspend Aharon Abu Hatzeira
from the Knesset for the duration
of his three-month prison sen-
tence. Instead, the committee ac-
cepted his commitment not to
attend Knesset meetings during
his period of incarceration.
Abu Hatzeira, leader of the
Tami Party, who served as Min-
ister for Social Welfare in the
government of Premier Mena-
chem Begin, was convicted of
misusing funds raised by a char-
itable organization. He is serving

Economic Policy Called
'Shock Treatment'
BALTIMORE Calling Isra-
el's economic situation its "most
difficult problem," Masha Lubel-
sky, secretary general of
Na'amat, termed the govern-
ment's policy of devaluation and
cutting subsidies on basic com-
modities "a shock treatment that
Israel cannot afford."
Addressing 600 delegates at
the opening of the 28th biennial
convention of Pioneer Women-
Na'amat at the Hyatt Regency,
Mrs. Lubelsky, a leader in
Israel s Labor Party, called for "a
new economic policy that would
consider the needs of lower in-
come people and ensure equal op-
portunities based on the idea of
social justice."
She characterized the economic
policies of the Likud government
as "a national disaster."
The biennial conference, which
ended Wednesday, also featured
the presentation of the organiza-
tion's Golda Meir Human Rela-
tions Award to Ambassador
Jeane Kirkpatrick.

Raymon Aron
Daad at Age 78
PARIS Raymond Aron, one
of France's greatest post-war
thinkers, philosophers and
writers, died Monday afternoon
at the age of 78. He suffered a
heart attack as he was leaving
the Paris court where he had
testified in a libel case against Is-
raeli historian Zeev Sternhell.
Aron, who was often compared
to Jean-Paul Sartre as one of the
post-war great thinkers, was born
into an upper middle class Jewish
family. At one time he was teach-
ing sociology, philosophy and po-
litical science simultaneously at
three different universities in-
cluding the Sorbonne. For over
thirty years he was a political
commentator in Lt Figaro and
He was a conscientious and
even proud Jew and ardent sup-
porter of Israel, though in recent
years he was highly critical of the
Israeli government's policies in
the occupied territories and more
recently in Lebanon.
Begun's Sentence
Rapped in Knesset
was virtually unanimous Sundav
in denouncing the severe sen-
tence imposed last Friday on
Soviet Jewish activist Iosif
Begun and the persecution of the
Hebrew language and of Soviet
Jews wishing to come to Israel.
Begun was sentenced to seven
years imprisonment to be follow-
ed by five years of internal exile.
He had been charged with "anti-
Soviet" activities.
Only two Knesset members,
Meir Wilner and Charlie Biton of
the Hadash (Communist) Party,
refused to join the protest and re-
peatedly interrupted the proceed-
ings. Biton termed the attack on
the Soviet Union a "circus."
Knesset Speaker Menachem
Savidor said the Soviet authori-
ties could not be compared to the
Nazis, but in the Soviet Union
only one language Hebrew
is officially banned. He said the
Nazis had burned Jews in the
overns, while the Russian sought
to "burn the spirit."

from 1938-1945, 106,000 persons

because of inhumane living and
working conditions.
At present, most of the re-

Tel Aviv in 1937, the son of
immigrants from Poland. His
father was in the lumber
business. He was a member of
Betar, the Herut youth move-
ment. He was elected to the
Knesset in 1977. In recent
months he has been an outspoken
critic of the economic policies of
Aridor, a Herut colleague, and
was rebuked at a meeting of the
Herut Central Committee for the
sharpness of his language.

nment, Histadrut and private
employers. He said if such a pact
did not materialize, it was the
government's duty to go ahead
with the process of economic
The main economic goal of the
government, according to Cohen-
Orgad is renewed economic
growth "on the basis of a healthy
economic infrastructure."
HE PROPOSED that people
with the highest incomes bear the
heaviest tax burden and should
receive reduced cost-of-living
increments. But he opposed any
cuts in Dollar and c.o.l.-knked
savings accounts, shelters for the
more affluent sectors.
With the appointment of
Cohen-Orgad apparently final,
Shamir may try to appease his
Liberal coalition partners with
another senior Cabinet post, such
as the Foreign Minister. Modai is
known to want that portfolio.
But it is also sought by his
Liberal colleague. Deputy
Premier David Levy.

Cohen-Orgad's Credentials
When Yoram Aridor resigned as Min-
ister of Finance, it is reported that Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir turned to Deputy
Prime Minister David Levy. Promptly, or
so the story goes, Levy said, "Thank you,
but no thanks."
One reason may well be that Levy still
saw himself as a heartbeat away from the
prime ministership when Menachem
Begins resignation shocked the world, and
that Shamir's succession has only whetted
his appetite for the job all the more.
In Israel, the Treasury is seen as a
political dead end. Aridor's resignation is
merely one more sad story in a series of
similar sad stories in that ministry.
And so now there is Yigal Cohen-Orgad,
the 46-year-old Herut MK whom Shamir
tapped for the job on Monday. Whatever
Cohen-Orgad* s background in finance, his
credentials seem all the more vigorous in
another area entirely. Dominantly, he is a
political hawk, and to demonstrate the
principle, Cohen-Orgad lives on the West
What is more, like Minister of Defense
Moshe Arens, he opposed the peace treaty
with Egypt. While this may or may not be
an important statement in the case of
Arens as Defense Minister, it appears to be
a virtual irrelevancy so far as Cohen-Orgad
is concerned.
Other than to say that Cohen-Orgad is
another staunch representative of Herat's
political principles, we are hard-pressed to
understand whether the talent he brings to
the Treasury will in fact help bring the
country out of its current fiscal crisis. Or
whether he will come to a dead end there
like so many of his predecessors.
He Needs Best Wishes
This is an important consideration be-
cause Cohen-Orgad's success or failure will
not be his alone. It will relate directly to the
destiny of Israel itself, which is in the midst
of a fiscal crisis so severe that the crisis has
prompted some pretty angry observations
in the wake of Prime Minister Shamir's
own comments about it during his inau-
gural address last week.
In that address, Shamir scored Israel's
increasing habit to live way over its head.
Other observers promptly noted the as-
tonishing number of new automobiles Is-
raelis are buying these days, crisis or no
crisis, no less than the number of television
sets, video recorders, high-fi's and cameras
the public appears to be consuming vora-
ciously no matter what the inflation rate
and the cost of living.
Cohen-Orgad doubtlessly has his hands
full, as did Yoram Aridor and a string of
Finance Ministers who came before them.
We wish him well.

Aridor: Shortest Term on Record
Friday. October 28, 1983
Volume 5
Number 35
Finance Minister Yoram
Aridor resigned from the
Cabinet last week in the
midst of Israel's worst eco-
nomic crisis and furious
controversy over a plan he
had just announced that
would link Israel's faltering
currency exclusively to the
U.S. Dollar.
Aridor emerged from a
specially convened Cabinet
meeting minutes after it began at
6 p.m., local time, to tell reporters
that he had tendered his
resignation. His term in office
was the shortest on record. He
left only three days after being
sworn in as a member of Premier
Yitzhak Shamir's new govern-
ment. He had served as Finance
Minister in the previous govern-
ment headed by Premier Mena-
chem Begin.
called "Dollarization" plan which
was disclosed Oct. 13 in Yediot
Achronot and later confirmed by
him in a noontime radio in-
terview. He conceded, however,
that under the present circums-
tances he could not contribute
toward its implementation or to
any of the economic reforms
currently under consideration.
Aridor's departure came as no
surprise. His policies had been
under severe criticism from
Cabinet colleagues as well as the
political opposition for some
time. Members of Likud's Liberal
Party wing reportedly told
Shamir that either Aridor went or
they would leave his coalition.
His "Dollarization" plan was
seen by many as a last desperate
attempt to remain in office. Its
basic premise was that the U.S.
Dollar or its Shekel equivalent
would become the official
currency of Israel. All tran-
sactions, salaries, prices and the
national budget itself would be
calculated in Dollar terms. As
Aridor had explained it, this
would do away with the
prevailing index system that
links wages to the cost-of-living
index and would eliminate
Israel's triple digit inflation.
plan indicated that if has little
chance of acceptance by the
government or the Knesset.
Informed sources said that
Shamir violently rejected the
plan after reading about it in
Yediot Achronot. The sources
said Shamir knew nothing of the
details of the proposal before-
hand. He found them unac-
ceptable on grounds that the
"Dollarization" of Israel's
currency would gravely limit the
country's sovereign policy-
making powers.
Aridor said, however, that he
had divulged his plan to Shamir
and to former Premier Menachem
Begin, but he did not say that
either or both of them endorsed
it. Sources here expressed doubt
that Aridor had aired his ideas at
meetings with top U.S. officials.
But Finance Ministry sources
told Yediot Achronot that he had
in fact discussed the plan with
the American Administration
during his recent visit to
Washington and that their
reactions had been favorable.
Aridor cut short his visit because
of the economic crisis, but the
director general of the Finance
Ministry, Ezra Sadan, flew back
to Washington for further talks.
Achronot account, the plan
would involve close cooperation
between the Bank of Israel and
the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank.
U.S. currency would be ac-
ceptable, along with the Dollar-
based Shekel, for all purchases
and business transactions in
Israel. Aridor was said to expect
the Americans to cooperate on
grounds that they want to see a
strong Israeli economy.
But the Finance Minister and
the sources who leaked his plan
to Yediot Achronot admitted
that the "Dollarization" scheme
would cause rise in unemploy-
ment, at least in the short-run.
They predicted that the figure
would go up to seven percent
from the current 4-5 percent.
Critics of the plan said unem-
ployment would rise much
It was noted here that such
close currency relationships with
the U.S. exist in only two other
countries Liberia and Panama
which historically have been
interlocked with the U.S.
economy. Histadrut Secretary
General Yeruham Meshel said he
didn't object in principle if Israeli
workers earned wages linked to
the Dollar. "But our currency has
dignity and national value," he
Party charged that the plan
exposed the Likud government's
total bankruptcy and would
make Israel ever more depen-
dent upon the U.S. Economist,
Eitan Berglass, former chief of
the Treasury's budgets division,
echoed the warning of high
unemployment. The Hadash
(Communist) Knesset faction
proposed a motion of no con-
fidence in the government.
But Shlomo Lorincz of Aguda
Israel, who is chairman of the
Knesset's Finance Committee,
suggested that the Aridor plan
would give the public a sense of
security. On the other hand,
Labor MK Gad Yaacobi, chair-
man of the Knesset's Economic
Committee, called the plan a
"caricature of an economic
Other critics from opposition
and academic circles called the
plan a "cosmetic" change of no
intrinsic economic value. Critics
within Shamir's coalition
denounced it on nationalistic
zhak Modai and MK Geula
Cohen of the rightwing Tehiya
Party called it a shameful
compromise of national pride and
dignity. "It's like changing the
flag or the anthem," said Modai,
a political foe of Aridor. "Israel
should put Abraham Lincoln on
its currency instead of Herzl,"
Cohen suggested bitterly.
Aridor explained that the
process he proposed would be the
third stage of an overall economic
reform which the Treasury has
been preparing for the past six
months. The first stage, im-
plemented a day after the Shamir
government took office, wasTk
23 percent devaluation of k
Shekel and the relva ^
reduction of government sub for basicifoodproductsZ\
fuel which sent prices soaring

The third stage calls for

would stop, printing new money
He warned that if the first three
stages are not implemented in I

would have little effect.

government headed by
Menachem Begin. They said
there was little chance that the
new coalition, composed of the
same partners, would react dif-
ferently to a 12 billion cut. Aridor I
refused to predict whether the I
Cabinet would back his plan.
Meanwhile, Israelis trying to I
cope with soaring prices,
devalued currency and the
collapse of bank shares, seemed
to be totally confused by the'
latest proposal and were in a
state of suspense over the
government's next moves. The
directors of the Tel Aviv stock,
exchange, which suspended
operations the previous Sunday,
announced that the exchange
would not reopen Sunday.
The exchange was closed to
halt trading in bank shares and
other stocks until the economic
situation stabilized. The govern-
ment is considering a plan to
shore up bank shares which
plummeted in value last week
because holders were cashing (
them in to buy Dollars and other
foreign currency in anticipation
of a weaker Shekel.

For those readers who do not
subscribe to the Miami Herald I
pass along an interesting bit of
^formation. A couple weeks ago
he Herald reported that the city
of Coconut Creek agreed to pay
$520,000 to avoid being labeled
anti Semitic in court.
Developer Raben-Pastal sued
the city claiming that it in many
ways tried to stop a condomini-
um project. The city officials
didn't want any more New York
Jews." company president Paul
Pariser said. A former mayor of
Coconut Creek referred to condo
residents as "bagel-snappers."
Besides my general interest in
anti-Semitism, this article has
special significance for me. The
case was won by the law firm of
Sachs and Weiss of Boca Raton.

gram of the Federation and in our

similation in Hadassah Maga-

effectiveness in creating or sus-

Wurzburger goes to the heart
of Jewish survival when he places
Jewish education as a priority
over social services, health care
and even financial support of the
Slate of Israel. This is heady and
controversial material. The ques-
tion that I pose is who among us
is so sure that Wurzburger is
wrong that we would take a stand
against him?
I pass along a very interesting
column by Barbara Newman that
appeared in the Newspaper

legitimate interests in Lebanon

Lebanon, about Syrian aggres-
sion against the legitimately
constituted Lebanese govern-
ment and about the removal of all
foreign troops from Lebanon?
Simply put, the price of Lebanese
freedom was too high for America
to pay.
And the irony is that it was
U.S. meddling that wrote the li-
bretto for this tragic opera now in
its denouement. It was the
United States that stopped the
Israeli advance in Lebanon, dis-
couraged Israeli moves against
Syria and weaned I^ebanon away
from an alliance with Israel.
It started before the election of
Rashir Gemayel, the charismatic
brother of the current Lebanese
president, who was persuaded by
Americans that his alliance with
Israel was a liability to be
shucked in favor of support from
the United States.
Before Gamayel was assassi-
nated, he had cautiously moved
to distance himself from Israel,
hut it was assumed by those who
knew him that this would not
have been for an indefinite
He would have given the
United States a fixed period to
deliver and then would have
resumed his own course if it did
not live up to its promises. The
current president of Lebanon,
Amin Gamayel, was always
hesitant about pro-Israeli policies
and it was not difficult for him to
accept the U.S. advice whole-
He has faithfully followed U.S.
directies over the past year and
has discovered in the end that the
United States could not honor its
verbal commitments. An election
year, a recalcitrant Congress and
press all these elements im-
pinged on the guarantees.
A treaty with Israel would
have included a full defense pact
with the strongest power on the
ground in the region. Now it
appears that both the United
States and Israel are willing to
accept Syrian control of Lebanon
with the caveat that Syria must
end the independence of the PLO
and assume responsibility for its
control. In turn, Israeli troops
will maintain security in southern
Lebanon for the indefinite future.
Lebanon is a graphic ode to the
joys of U.S. friendship.

Through the tireless efforts of
a few persons, namely Charles
Goldman, Ben Kessler, Lou
Medwin, Al Lawrence and Sandy
Klein, sponsored by the Broth-
erhood of Temple Emeth and
Delray B'nai B'rith, an event
took place on September 1,1981,
placing a priority on the needs of
the elderly of South Palm Beach
A resolution was drafted which
called for a facility to be built
which would provide meaningful
and creative services, activities
and make available information
about services as provided under
the Older American Act to senior
citizens and groups.
The necessary requests were
filed with the Board of County
Commissioners to press for land,
building and operating expenses
and the South County was in full
agreement that such an urgent
need did exist.
Such a facility should provide
opportunities for meaningful
relationships, learning new skills,
languages, music, nature, games,
dance and crafts. This multi-
purpose center should help the
individual remain in the com-
munity by helping him to
maintain his emotional well
being. Many seniors suffer lone-
liness, isolation and depression
because of a lack of social con-
Throughout the period of two
years, and with much persuasion
and insistence, Ben Kessler was
in constant contact with our
Resident Commissioner, and was
successful in reaching the point
when the Commissioners directed
their staff to present an ac-
ceptable site for construction of a
senior citizen center. Calooaa
Park on Congress Ave. was
presented by the County Com-
missioner's staff on Thursday,
Oct. 6 at a Board of Commis-
sioners Workshop. The site was
approved by the Commissioners
and accepted by the Trustees of
our Committee.
Its location will be beneficial to
residents of Boynton Beach,
Golf, Delray Beach, Highland
Beach, Boca Raton, Gulfsteam
and Briny Breezes. This project
is now in the hands of the County
and will be operational in 1985.

Yes, You Count
TAe 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
The more we understand Jew-
ish History the less apt we are to
say "Oh. I hut don't count."
Soon Americans will go to the
polls and vote for individuals to
determine the kind of govern-
ment we will have after the
election. I am sure that many will
abstain from voting because of
this attitude "One more vote
will not make any difference."
The Torah refutes this concept
beginning with the story of
Adam and continuing with the
narrations of Abraham, Isaac
and Jacob and Joseph. Mother
Sarah was just one person but
her actions changed the history
of the world. This fact is more
important today than ever
Certainly we will agree many
things around us need to be
changed Situations ranging from
international affairs to the
hatred and the pettiness and the
small talk in our own lives need
to be changed for the better. A
wise man once said, "Great doors
swing on small hinges."
Each individual is the door
through which the opportunity
to make this world a little
better. God made us in His image
so that we consider ourselves
Big, as Little as we are a small
hinge to swing a big door. This is
the way Abraham and Sarah
believed. This is also true in the
history of mankind.
In 1914 an Austrian prince was
killed by one man who aimed a
small bullet at the prince's small
head. It was only one man, out of
millions on earth, that touched
off the dynamite of a war that has
never really stopped.
In American history one vote
did much for this country and
changed its destiny. California.
Texas, Washington, Oregon and
Idaho were admitted to the
Union by the margin of One Vote.
So did Jefferson. Adams and
Hayes become president by One
Vote. Selective service, which
determined the destiny of
millions was made a law by one
vote. You see the how One vote
made destiny!
There is an old saying "For
the lack of a nail the shoe was
lost, for the lack of a shoe the
horse was lost, for the lack for a
horse the rider was lost; for the
lack of a rider the message was
lost, for the lack of a message the
battle was lost, for the lack of the
battle the kingdom was lost. All
was lost for the lack of a Nail."
You see. One can decide destiny.
This is also true in our indivi-
dual lives. It is possible to attain
success in life by accident. But
most of those who achieve
success in life they do so by self
discipline and hard work. A small
self discipline in life may become
the hinge of a big door which
leads us to the top or to the
The modern highway is a les-
son for us. A person drives down
the highway at legal speed.
Another car comes down the
same highway in the opposite
direction. Normally they will
meet and pass each other inches
apart. But suppose that, because
of a little whiskey, one driver
allows himself a small margin of
error by a few small inches then a
life or lives can be lost.
I remember when I was in
cheder one of my teachers made
me memorize "I am but one,
but I am one." I cannot do
everything but I can do
something and I ought to do it.
And I accepted this teaching as
the motto in my life.
I also remember how my rebbe
wanted to tell me how evil came
into this world, he told me about
a decision Eve made, while she
and Adam were still in the
Rabbi Nathan Zelizer
Garden of Eden. It must have
been such a small decision to
make when she decided to take
just one small bite. Yes, many ot
us had to make such small
decisions in our lives just one
drink, just one smoke, or just one
juicy bit of gossip, or just one
lazy Friday eve, just one little
stolen penny. Oh, yes, a tiny
little, but our destiny hangs on it!
Sarah made a small decision
to separate two little boys
Isaac and Ishmael one a
hunter and the other a student,
one who wanted to live by the
sword and the other who wanted
to live by the book, but what that
small decision made in the
destiny of man!
You remember how another
individual Noah how he too
made a small decision after he
landed the ark on dry land. Every
one will agree that Noah had
something to celebrate. He had to
decide between reconstructing
the world, planting and building
a new order and taking a little
shnops and falling asleep.
The decision to celebrate as he
did. decided the destiny of his
sons, and the destiny of the
yellow, black and white races.
Behind all big decisions lie
small ones, sometimes a series of
small ones and God guides us in
the making of these decisions
if we let Him help us He will
guide us in making the right
decisions, as He guided Abraham
and Sarah.
God and one individual let
us not underestimate the power
of such a combination. Great
doors are before each of us, ready
to open on a better future. The
world through you can change.
You are a tiny hinge in the
community, in the synagogue, in
the organization to which you
belong but their future
depends on you.

Reagan Administration
Mum on Jordan Deal
(JTA) The Reagan Ad-
ministration continued to
maintain an official silence
over the weekend on
reports that the U.S. plans
to equip two Jordanian
army brigades to serve as
part of a joint U.S.-Jorda-
nian strike force to meet
special emergencies in the
Persian Gulf.
But White House Deputy
Press Secretary Larry Speakes
said last Friday that since both
Jordan and the U.S. are inter-
ested in Mideast security "it
should surprise no one that ques-
tions of regional security are re-
gularly discussed."
According to reports, the Ad-
ministration has secretly pro-
posed a $225 million appropria-
tion for the two brigades arid to
provide the Jordanians with C-
130 transport planes, medical
evacuation transport and ad-
vanced infantry and river
crossing equipment.
THE PLAN, which has been in
the works since 1979, has been
discussed with key members of
Congress and with the Israelis.
The Administration apparently
hopes to persuade Israel not to
oppose the plan but the Israelis
fear the force can be used against
Speakes said Friday he would
neither "confirm nor deny" the
report. "Jordan is an important
friend of the United States with
which we have long-standing
and well known military supply
relationships," Speakes said.
"It is in the interest of the
United States to continue these
relationships as both countries
have an interest in regional
security that is equally well
known. It should surprise no one
that questions of regional
security are regularly discussed."

^between Clark and Secret
_State George Shultz over
fane's handling of the
"ons in Lebanon. The
Department denied that
Shultz had made any comment
about Clark going to Rome to
meet with McFarlane.
Shultz reportedly had no inkl-
ing of the impending Clark ap-
pointment when he had lunch
with Clark and McFarlane at the
State Department. Clark is one of
Reagan's closest advisers and
had been named to the National
Security Council post and before
that Deputy Secretary of State
under Alexander Haig, despite
his lack of knowledge about
foreign affairs.
Meanwhile, the Administra-
tion was at pains to stress that
there was no change in its policy
in Lebanon despite the Clark re-
assignment and the death of a
U.S. marine who was killed by
snipers at Beirut International
"WE ARE deeply concerned
that our marines continue to
come under fire and are saddened
by the death of another marine,"
Reagan was quoted as saying.
That casualty was the fifth
marine killed in Lebanon.
However, U.S. officials
reportedly said that the marine
who died and another one who
was injured were the result of a
direct attack on the U.S. force
rather than being caught in the
cross-fire between various Leb-
anese groups as happened in the

Inspired Soviet Kids
To Write to Reagan
It has been three months
since 11-year-old Samantha
Smith of Maine visited the
Soviet Union at the invita-
tion of Soviet leader Yuri
Andropov after having
written to him, but her trip
continues to fire the ima-
gination of children whose
families remain trapped in
the USSR.
On Oct. 9, according to the
Student Struggle for Soviet Jew-
ry (SSSJ), nine-year-old Mikhail
Kondrashin and his 10-year-old
sister, Kira, of Moscow mailed a
letter to President Reagan asking
to be invited to meet him in the
White House and seeking his aid
to emigrate to Israel where they
could freely speak Hebrew and
celebrate the Sabbath. "We also

This is the third known letter
by children sent in the wake of
the Samantha Smith episode, the
SSSJ said. In May, nine-year-old
Avi Goldstein of Tbilisi wrote to
Samantha, asking her to deliver a
message directly to Andropov for
the freedom of his family, who
had been refused emigration to
Israel evern prior to his birth.
Samantha never saw Andropov
during her trip.
In June, 12-year-old Irina
Tamopolsky of Kharkov wrote to
Andropov to defend her father
who was about to stand trial for
"anti-Soviet slander" after
watching a Soviet TV interview
with Samantha. There was no
response, and her father was
sentenced to three years.
Fashion Show Planned By Delray Women
The Delray Women's Division
of the Israel Bond Organization
of Delray, under the leadership of
Leo Brink, is again moving
toward a successful campaign
that will culminate with a fashion
show in West Palm Beach.
The women are busily planning
several fall functions so that the
ladies can attend the successful
fashion show held at the Breakers
every year. This year it will be on
Thursday, Dec. 15 with Saks
sponsoring the show. To be elibi-
ble to attend this elegant func-
tion, a woman must purchase at
least a $500 bond or two $250
certificates prior to the fashion
The ladies involved in the
planning are Toula Albala. Etta
Dogan, Pauline Gertman,
Adeline Kamen, Anne Katz, Rose
Medwin, and Sarah Sommers.

you can attend please call Pauline
Gertman at 498-8821, Rose
Medwin at 498-0006, or Sarah
Sommers at 499-4832.
Speakes, however stressed that
the "fact that the ceasefire is
holding by and large and the na-
tional reconciliation project is
moving forward indicates" that
the multinational force with the
marine contingent in part "exerts
a positive force in moving Leb-
anon towards stability, security
and eventual peace."
REAGAN, joined by Clark,
Shultz and McFarlane, met Fri-
day morning with Wadi Hadad,
Lebanese President Amin
Gemayel's National Security
Adviser. Hadad told reporters
that he was sorry about the death
of the marine but said this was
the price the U.S. had to pay to
defend democratic interests.
Hadad said he urged the
Americans to "neutralize" the ef-
fect the occupying forces are
having on Lebanese citizens
and apparent reference to Syria
making national reconciliation
difficult. Speakes refused to com-
ment on the conversation with
Hadad. He said that the U.S. is
not directly involved in negotia-
tions for national reconciliation
but it has tried to be "helpful" in
achieving "the instrument" to
bring about national re-
