"He didn't bide his Judaism,
and everyone knew he was Jew-
ish," said Soifert's stepfather,
Chaim Homer, in a telephone
interview with the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency. Romer said his
stepson was an active member of
the Jewish community in his
hometown of Nashua, NH, where
Soifert was buried Oct. 18.
The 25 year-old marine is
believed to be the first Jewish
American soldier killed in Leb-
anon as part of the U.S. con-
tingent in the multinational
force. Romer stressed that Soifert
viewed his participation in the
MNF as a purely military ende-
avor. Soifert served as a bomb
disposal expert.
AT FUNERAL service* at the
Temple Beth Abraham in
Nashua, Soifert was eulogized
'as a marine who was even wil-
ling to sacrifice his own life for
oeace so that others could live."
Rabbi Shlomo Hochberg of the
Montifiore Synagogue in Lowell,
Mass. who delivered one of the
eulogies, said:
"Allan is not only a national
hero but a personal hero. The
telephone calls of sympathy have
:ome not only from the Pres-
ident, the Governor and the
marine commander, but from
childhood friends and teachers
who remember Allan."
Soifert was born in Toronto,
Canada, and became a natural-
ized U.S. citizen. He dropped out
of high school in 1977 to join the
narines. He served a six-month
tour of duty in Lebanon last year.
He visited Nashua last July and
said he had volunteered for
second tour of duty in Lebanon.

Beate Klarsfeld, who along
with her husband Serge,
were responsible for track-
ing down the wartime head
of Gestapo in Lyon, Klaus
Barbie, said this week that
West Germany is currently
preparing to make a formal
request to Syria for the
extradition of an alleged
Nazi war criminal now
living in Damascus.
Klarsfeld, the world famous
Nazi-hunter, said in an interview
that West Germany will seek the
extradition of Alois Brunner, who
is alleged to have directed
gestapo operations in the Nice
region. Serge Klarsfeld went to
Damascus in June. 1982 to make
a formal protest with the Syrian
government for harboring
Brunner. He was ultimately
expelled from Syria.
ACCORDING to the Klar
sfeMs, Brunner was responsible
for the deportation of Jews from
Austria, Salonika and France in
19431944. They claim that
Brunner was personally responsi-
ble with having rounded up 300
children from Jewish centers in
the Paris area on July 20, 1944
and deporting them to Auschwitz
where they were exterminated.
Mrs. Klarsfeld said that
Brunner decided to seek haven in
Syria because "he knows the feel-
ing of Syria towards the Jews,
and towards Israel" and also
knows the way the Syrian gov-
has treated its Jewish
population in the past.
The Klarsfeld were in the
United States to receive the
Women's American ORT Human
Rights Award at the organiza-
tion's 27th biennial convention in

reasons, and Beate was in New

Hoopster Star Is Israel Bound
Joel Kramer, who has been
playing basketball in the Na-
tional Basketball Association the
past five seasons with the
Phoenix Suns, has left that team
and his currently slated to play
with the .Maccabi Tel Aviv con-
gregation in the Israel National
League. Kramer was a member of
the U.S. Maccabiah team eight
years ago and made a profound
impression on the Israel basket-
ball addicts and promoters.
At that time he refused offers
from Israeli quintets because he
felt he could make it in the big
time. As a matter of fact he did
make it with the Phoenix Suns
and for the past five years has
been a valuable member of their
reserve team.
Insiders report that Kramer
will be receiving in the vicinity of
$75.0OO-plus for his services with
the Maccabi Five. Not a bad
salary for a so called "amateur."
Joel will be replacing the
departed Earl Williams, who was
considered a colossal pain in the
neck to the Maccabi Manage-
ment. One thing is certain.
Kramer is a bonafide Jew and
does not have to go through a
conversion program in order to
qualify for the top hoop division
in Israel.
Not to pursue the matter of
forced conversions on American
non-Jewish players too much
further, the fact remains that
over the past month two top
flight American players, have
submitted to conversion and. get
this, for a team which is situated
in the Second League. Whereas
each First Division team is per-
mitted to carry one non-Jewish
player, every player in the
Second Division League must be
of the Jewish faith.
A professor at Tel Aviv Univ-
ersity, who will serve as coach of
a team in Netanya. came to this
country and arranged, with an
agent, to have the two recruits on
his team converted to Judaism.
The whole matter took a couple of
days and is considered to be quite
a joke among the more religious
basketball adherents in Israel.
We've been given to understand
that the cost of converting these
players came to S3.000 per man.

ye on is John Frank of Ohio
State I Diversity. Frank, from
Pittsburgh, is a 6 "3. 225 lb senior
and serves as co-captain of the
strong Ohio State University
Eleven. In his first game, this
season, which saw the Buckeyes
knock over Oregon, 31-6, Frank
was graded at 75 percent for the
56 plays in which he participated.
This is a very high performance
As a matter of fact. Coach
Earle Bruce who leads the Ohio
Eleven stated. "Frank played
with great intensity, maybe the
greatest of any player since I've
been at this Institution. John
seems to play his best ball in the
big games." In the Oregon
contest he caught three passes
for 31 yards and now is ranked
fourth on the OSU career pass re-
ceiving list.
Frank's biggest disappoint-
ment this year is that he had to
play on Yom Kippur, against
Oklahoma. He decided to play
since he contends he has a great
team tradition and he felt forced
to sacrifice, contending to make
up for it some other way.
Daniel Steinberg, a top flight
soccer player, who was born in
Argentina and played early
soccer as a member of the
Argentine junior team, which
featured the greatest player
extant today. Madronna, is
headed for Israel where he will,
undoubtedly, be signed up by one
of the number one teams in the
Division One Soccer League.
Steinberg is the product of a
mixed marriage.
Unlike the basketball players
who have been culled from other
religions. Steinberg has acknow-
ledged himself as Jewish and
has practiced Judaism, despite
the fact that his mother did not
convert. He always followed the
tenets of Judaism and in order to
make certain he would be ac-
cepted as a Jew- in Israel, he took
it upon himself to visit an
Orthodox Beth Din in Phila-
delphia. His life story was related
to three revered Philadelphia
Orthodox Rabbis and after one of
them studied with Steinberg for
three weeks, all three rabbis
issued him a certificate which will
enable him to become a dual
citizen immediately upon his
arrival in Israel.
Daniel, 23. has played profes-
sional soccer in Division One
circles, in his native Argentina,
has been a member of the New
York Eagles of the American
Soccer League and played one
year with a top division team in
Greece. Yonanina. Based on his
performances with these teams
and with many years of good
soccer ahead of him Steinberg
should be a welcome asset to the
team which signs him in the Holy

Kirkpatrick Scores UN's
'Obsessive' Anti -Semitism
Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick
defended the United Nations as
an important forum for the re-
solution of conflicts despite a
decade-long "obsessive" anti-
Semitic campaign in the UN that
has "nothing to do with the
particular policies of the different
Israeli governments."
She said that during the past
10 years. Israel has been
"isolated, despised, himiliated
and victimized" in what she
termed rit ual denunciation.''
But Mrs. Kirkpatrick asserted
that Israel's situation in the UN
is now improving.
The envoy made her remarks
during an address to 600
delegates at the biennial conven-
ion of Pioneer Women-Na'amat
which presented her with its
Golda Meir Human Relations
Award for "her staunch defense
of Israel in the UN" and her
"vigorous advocacy" of the emi-
gration rights of Soviet Jews.
In another session. Stephen
Solender. executive vice pres-
ident of the Associated Jewish
Charities and Welfare Fund of
Baltimore, described the effects
of federal budget cuts in social
services. "The Jewish commun-
ity must adapt to a new reality
because the program of Reagan
cutbacks shows no sign of abat-
ing." he said. Solender cited a 35
percent increase in the caseload
of his agency in the first five
months of this year which, he
said, includes many Jewish
middle class unemployed.

tration was beginning a

that the U.S. was "concerned"
about Israel's economic difficult
ies and would welcome exchange
with Israel about means of
helping to alleviate it.
McFARLANE also stressed
that a "strong relationship is
vital to the security of American
interests in the Middle East."
But he maintained that reports

iddle East.
After Reagan announced the
appointment at the White House,
McFarlane, who has been special
Middle East envoy since July 22,
told reporters he believes in con-
tinuity in U.S. Mideast policy.
But he noted that he saw his job
"not to be an advocate, but to be
a coordinator."
AT THE same time, he gave
some clues as to where that pol-
icy is going when he was asked
whether the Administration was
concerned about the Palestinian
people. He replied that that con-
cern was reflected in Reagan's
September 1, 1982 Mideast peace
initiative. "The history of the
Palestinian community like that
of the Lebanese is a very sad his-
tory," McFarlane said.
He said there were a "number
of ideas in progress" for improv-
ing the conditions of the Pales-
tinians in Lebanon and on the
West Bank. While not going into
details, he said the Palestinians
ire in a state of "flux," and the
U.S. "has opportunities it has
not had until now." Repeating
that Palestinian history was
"sad," he declared: "it's time to
stop reading about it and try to
make a little of it."
At the same time, McFarlane,
who has been Deputy Assistant
for National Security Affairs
under Clark, stressed that he be-
lieves in a "strong" U.S.-Israeli
relationship. "I have always felt
that way, and I shall remain to
McFarlane revealed the U.S.
method of trying to bring Syria
into support of the present efforts
to reach a national reconciliation
among the various religious
groups in Lebanon and the even-
tual withdrawal of all foreign
forces from that country. He said
the U.S. sought to "intensify and
make more frequent our talks"
with the Syrians. "We're looking
for common ground that can lead
to Syria's interests being accom-
modated without prejudicing the
well-being of Lebanon," he said.
Both Reagan and McFarlane
made clear the Administration's
determination to keep the U.S.
marines in Lebanon despite the
casualties they have suffered.
Reagan said the marines are
there because it is "vitally impor-
tant for the security of the United
States and the Western world
that we do everything we can to
further the peace process in the
Middle East."
WHILE SAYING the "loss of
life is unacceptable," McFarlane
said that since the U.S. forces
entered Lebanon there have been
"some" who have by "threaten-
ing, killing" hope to "cause us to
pull out. Their expectations are
wrong." He did not identify who
the "some" are.
He expressed high hopes that
the meeting that starts Thursday
in Lebanon will bring progress
toward national reconciliation
because he said the various
groups realize that they must
compromise since the "alterna-
tives to reconciliation are worse."
Reagan left open who will suc-
ceed McFarlane as special Mid-
east negotiator. He said it will be
one of his "hardest tasks" since
McFarlane did such an "excel-
lent" job. McFarlane seemed to
indicate support for his deputy in
the Middle East, Richard Fair-
banks, who is still in Beirut. He
noted that Fairbanks has con-
ducted as many meetings as has
he himself, but he said the deci-
sion was up to the President.
A MAJOR question raised by
the McFarlane appointment is
whether it will lead to a renewal
of the public squabbles over the
Middle East, as well as other
issues, between Secretary of
State George Shu'.u and Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinberger, or
whether McFarlane will be ablr
to control this in his job as "coor
dinator" of policy. Shultz report-
edly had supported McFarlane'?
appointment, as did Clark, while
it had been opposed by Weinber-
ger and Central Intelligence Di-
rector William Casey.
McFarlane admitted that
Clark was "as close as any man"
to the President. The 45 year-old
McFarlane, a retired marine lieu-
tenant colonel, is basically a staff
man who received his first expe-
rience in negotiations when he
replaced Philip Habib in Lebanon
three months ago.
He served m the National Se-

But Reagan made clear he be-

with him as his deputy. There,
with Clark unfamiliar with mili-
tary and foreign affairs, McFar-
lane was credited with the day-to-
day administration of affaire.
Both Reagan and McFarlane

whether this w:" lead to the con-

The Argus
Tough U.S. Stand
Gratifies Israeli Officials
Israeli officials are grati-
fied by the tougher U.S.
line toward Syria and what
they see as a more realistic
assessment by Washington
of Syria's destructive role
in Lebanon.
President Reagan's sharp
warning, at his press conference
last week, that the U.S. would
not allow Syria "aided and
abetted by 7,000 Soviet advisers
and technicians" to destroy the
chances for stability in Lebanon,
dispelled the perception held here
in recent weeks that the U.S. was
tilting toward Syria in the Leba-
nese situation.
U.S. special envoy Richard
Fairbanks also took a firm line
toward the Syrians when he met
with Premier Yitzhak Shamir
here. Fairbanks, who was ac-
companied by U.S. Ambassador
Samuel Lewis, assured Shamir
that Washington remained com-
mitted to a strong central
government in Lebanon and the
eventual withdrawal of all foreign
forces from that country. He was
confident that the national
reconciliation talks would start
next week.
THEY WERE to have begun,
but disagreement among the
various parties over a site for the
talks forced postponement.
Reports from Beirut later said
that all of the parties have agreed
to meet in Geneva.
Fairbanks is, at the moment,
the senior U.S. diplomat in the
region. He had served as deputy
to special envoy Robert
McFarlane who became Presi-
dent Reagan's national security
adviser last week. He stressed to
Shamir that the U.S. continues to
support fully the Israel-Lebanon
withdrawal and security
agreement signed last May 17
but still not ratified by Lebanon.
His assurance in that respect
was welcomed here. Israelis had
been worried that U.S. policy in
Lebanon was veering toward the
idea that concessions to Syria by
the government of President
Amin Gemayel would yield
cooperation from Damascus in
the reconciliation process. One
concession presumably would
have been the abrogation of the
May 17 accord with Israel.
But Reagan's tough remarks
indicated to officials here that the
U.S. now shares Israel's skep-
ticism about Syrian aims in

Gentile Neighbors Are More Deft in Mysteries of Money
For a long time, the word was out. War
or no war in Lebanon, Israelis were buying
new cars faster than one would have
thought possible only several years ago.
They were snapping up color television sets
as if there were no tomorrow. Their appetite
for stereos and cameras seemed insatiable.
Ditto for refrigerators, washing machines
and a host of other domestic goodies.
What's wrong with that? Nothing, if you
can afford them. But too many Israeli
creditors said that Israelis cannot afford
them. When Finance Minister Yoram
Aridor, since resigned, moved to link the
Shekel with the American Dollar, the
bubble finally burst.
We are told now there is an agonizing
reappraisal of Israel's economy taking
place. The favorite phrase this week to
describe the Israeli experience is that the
whole nation is "biting the bullet" as a
consequence of an across-the-board 25
percent devaluation of the Shekel. Nor can
this reappraisal be laid entirely at the feet
of Aridor. Even the new Prime Minister,
Yitzhak Shamir, in his inaugural address
warned that the nation was living beyond
its means.
Does all of this suggest an instant
bettering of a years-long triple digit in-
flationary spiral? Does it say that things
will improve, say, tomorrow? Hardly likely.
Even Uncle Sam, sobered more than ever
by the tragic terrorist deaths of 191 U.S.
servicemen in Beirut Sunday, increasingly
recognizes what Israel's move into
Lebanon was all about in the first place.
And sobered Uncle Sam, anxious to have a
stable Israel as its ally in the region, not an
economically crisis-ridden ally, only the
other day offered help to the beleaguered
country to climb out of the morass.
No details are available as yet. But one
sobering thought that strikes us is that
Jews, charged by anti-Semites for millenia
with a mysterious gift for handling money,
find their Gentile neighbors far more deft in
this enterprise than they ever were as they,
themselves, struggle to survive.
All Bets Are Off
Suggestions have been made that the
Soviet Union, in the aftermath of the
shooting down of the South Korean
passenger airliner, would ease its
harassment and persecution of Soviet
Jews. As has now been demonstrated, this
will not be the case. Last week, Iosif
Begun, the Soviet Jewish activist and
unofficial teacher of Hebrew, was given the
maximum sentence by a court in Vladimir.
Begun, a 51-year-old engineer who has
long sought to emigrate to Israel, was
sentenced to seven years imprisonment to
be followed by five years in internal exile.
He was charged with "anti-Soviet" ac-
tivities. He could have received a lighter
sentence but by drawing the maximum,
Soviet intentions have been brought into
sharp focus.
Begun had become a special case as he
symbolized the struggle of Soviet Jewry,
along with such notable activists as Ida
Nudel and Anatoly Sharansky. His par-
ticular case has included three arrests,
beginning in 1977, his internal exile in the
remote city of Magadan, and also having
lost his job at the Moscow Central Institute
many years ago.
The Soviets, by harassing Begun for so
many years, were in the position to use him
as a demonstration of their new con-
ciliatory position in the aftermath of the
Korean airline massacre. Many govern-
ments were therefore keeping a close watch
on how the Soviets would handle the Begun
trial. And now, the hardline view of the
Soviet government has been confirmed.
There will be no easing of human rights and
no increase in the emigration of Soviet
The United States said the Begun trial
marked the cutting edge of a "new wave of
repression" in the USSR and an
in officially sanctioned anti-Semitism Th
Israeli government appealed for Begun/a
release and said instructions have been
issued for diplomatic efforts toward this
Overall, the Begun three-day trial and
the imposition of the maximum sentence
leave an emptiness that the fight for the
freedom of Soviet Jewry still has a long
way to go. But it also serves to instruct
American Jews to continue in their efforts
by protesting, demonstrating and actively
pressuring local representatives in an effort
to have Begun and his many other
comrades released from the tyranny of the
Soviet Union.

Number 36
There are about 50,000 Jewish
professors in American colleges
and universities, according to a
study by the Carnegie Com-
mission for Higher Education.
They are more or less equally
divided in age between forties,
fifties and sixties.
The parents of most of them
were immigrants with Little
formal education. About one-
third of their parents had only an
elementary school education;
only about half of them
graduated from high school.
Most of the professors grew up in
typical Jewish family settings.
Most of them received an
elementary level formal Jewish
education culminating in Bar
Mitzvah ceremonies.
Most of them don't deny their
Jewishness. but a very in-
significant percentage of them is
involved in Jewish communal
activities. With the exception of
those teaching in Jewish institu-
tions of higher learning, the great
majority of the Jewish academics
consider themselves Jews
ethnically, not by religion.
However, there are some who
observe kashrut and there is a
small organization of Orthodox
Jewish professors.
The Carnegie study shows that
32 percent of the Jewish
professors are at schools of the
highest quality category. Other
studies show that 25 percent of
Ivy League college professors are
Jews. There are Jews holding
positions as presidents of leading
universities and deans of leading
In my student years, in the
1920's, there were less than a
dozen Jewish professors in
American universities. They
included: Morris Raphael Cohen,
the great professor of philo-
sophy; Harry A. Wolfson, a
young Harvard University
professor; Isaac Husik, a
University of Pennsylvania
professor whose book, "A
History of Medieval Jewish
Philosophy.'' was the standard
work in the field; Franz Boas who
was professor of anthropology at
Columbia University; and Albert
Abraham Michelson, the Nobel
Prize physicist who, as professor
of physics at the University of
Chicago, was the first American
scientist to conduct tests of
Einstein's theory of relativity
long before Einstein and his
theory were recognized in the
Today, more than 25 percent of
the 50.000 Jewish professors are
teaching law, about 22 percent
are teaching medicine, a large
percentage is teaching higher
mathematics, physics, chemistry
and bio-chemistry. There are also
many who teach economics and
psychology. Young professors
are well represented in the
various categories of Liberal arts.
Leaders of the organized Jew
ish community are disturbed over
the indifference of the great
majority of Jewish professors
toward Jewish communal life.
They feel that professors have an
influence and can play an im-
portant role in strengthening
Jewish feelings not only among
students on the campus but also
in the wider Jewish community.
The majority of the professors
do not accept what they call the
"communal myth" that they are
particularly influential and that
they have a special role to play.
They do not see their par-
ticipation in communal affairs as
an appropriate part of their role
as academics. Practically all of
them support Israel's inde-
Profile of a Scholar: One
of the professors who feels
deeply Jewish is Milton Konvitz.
who gained national recognition
as a great teacher of Constitu-
tional Law. His books are cited in
U.S. Supreme Court opinions.
He has been active for years in
the American Jewish Committee,
the American Jewish Congress,
and the American Association for
Jewish Education. For his ac-
tivities in Jewish communal life
he was awarded in 1954 the
Jewish Tercentenary Medal by
the Jewish Community
Federation in Newark where he
lived before joining Cornell
University as professor.
Konvitz. who is currently
professor emeritus, was teaching
law, and industrial and labor
relations, for 36 years. 23 of them
at Cornell. Earlier he was
professor at New York State
School of Industrial and Labor
Relations. He taught courses on
judicial administration, civil
liberties and civil rights. His
courses at the New York Univer-
sity were among the first of then-
kind in the country.
In tribute to him, members of
the Cornell faculty have produced
a book which deals with his Life
and work. The volume appeared
under the title "Rights. Liberties
and Ideals: The Contributions of
Milton R. Konvitz" and was
published by Fred Rothman and
Co. in Littleton. Colo. The
publication of the book was made
possible by a fund raised by
Cornell Alumni, reflecting the
impact Prof. Konvitz had on
many thousands of Cornell
students during the years.
The book, prepared by David
J Daneiski, professor of political
science at Stanford University,
opens with an interpretive,
comprehensive and analytical
study by him of KonviU's role in
the scholarly world. It brings out
also his philosophy on Jewish
ideals and their relation to
American ideal. The book also
includes essays by Dr. Konvitz
on constitutional rights, fun-
damental Liberties, human rights,
and Jewish spiritual values. The

His philosophy on Jewish
values he hold also a doctorate

in many of his articles. The
volume carries a 50-page
bibliography of all the books,
pamphlets and articles Dr
Konvitz wrote. The bibliography
was compiled by Philip Dankert.

Incidentally, the American
Jewish Committee just published
a book, "Jewish Life in
America," containing essays by
"outstanding Jewish scholars
and editors about Jewish life in
this country from the late 18th
Century, when fewer than 3.000
Jews were scattered throughout
the colonies, to the present time
when the Jewish community of
the United States successful,
acculturated and integrated -
numbers close to six million.
Prof. Konvitz, who is one of the
few Americans to be awarded
honorary degrees from all four
American institutions of higher
Jewish learning, is represented in
the volume with a highly in-
teresting 30-page essay on the
American Jewish experience in
the quest for equality.
He brings out the uniqueness
of the experience and emphasizes
that America has been a great
exception in Jewish history in the
treatment of Jews. The AJCoro-
mittee book, edited by Gladys
Rosen, provides important in-
sights into the interaction of
Jewish values and American
freedoms, and the special impact
of America on the Jewish
community, its life and its in-
The Safad Influence: The
name of Prof. Konvitz is
widely known in the Jewish
world, however, very few Jews in
this country and in other
countries know that Konvitz was
born in Safad. the city in Israel

as a great rabbinical center and
as a Kabalah center for hundreds
of years. Few American Jews
know also that KonviU's father

The representatives expressed
concern about Egyptian-Israeli
contacts "since relations seem to
have stalemated." They added
that strong ties between the two
countries "are crucial to the
stability of the region and efforts
to prevent the spread of radical-
ism in the Middle East."
PARIS (JTA) Leaders of
the American and French Jewish
communities have called here for
the release of Soviet Jewish
activist Iosif Begun who was
sentenced by a Soviet court this
week to seven years' imprison-

The appeal was made at a joint
press conference held by Julius
Berman, chairman of the Confer-
ence of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations,
and the leadership of the Repre-
sentative Council of Major
French Jewish Organizations
Observing that Begun's
'crime" in the eyes of the Soviet
authorities was his demand to be
allowed to emigrate to Israel and
the fact that he taught the He-
brew language, Berman said: "It
is only fitting that the various
Jewish communities should co-
operate on an issue as essential as
the situation of Soviet Jewry and
the fate of the Jewish activists."
He stressed that the appeal on
behalf of Begun "has nothing to
do with East-West relations or
tensions. It is based strictly on
justice and humanitarian consid-
Berman met with CRIF presi-
dent Theo Klein to consider the
possibilities of increased coopera-
tion and coordination between
the two representative Jewish or-
ganizations. He told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency later that he
hopes to establish a good

He cited as an example the
need to consult with French

They intended to return to Safad

By the time peace came, the

Americanized they were reluctant
to leave. So Rabbi Konvitz put

position of a spiritual leader of an

Newark, becoming later the head
of the Orthodox Rabbinate of the
U.S. and Canada.

parent agreement to bail out

trading Oct. 23.
LABOR MK Gad Yaacobi
charged that Shamir, contrary to
his disclaimers, knew of and
endorsed the Aridor plan inas-
much as the Finance Minister
disclosed, before he resigned
under fire last Thursday, that the
plan was in the making withing
the Likud coalition for the past
six months.
Shamir has acknowledged that
it had been "an idea for discus-
sion" but claimed he never took it
seriously as government policy
until an aide to Aridor leaked it
to the press. The leak triggered a
massive run on Dollars and pre-
cipitated Aridor s departure.

MK Amnon Rubinstein as
"moral anarchy" designed, be
said, to protect the banks, not the
small investors.

government, listed five economic
measures he intends to imple-
ment: budget cuts: restrained
public consumption; a freeze on
living standards: broader based
taxation: and protection for the
weaker sectors of society.
HE SAID he would strive to
reduce Israel's S5 billion foreign
trade deficit by half. He an-
nounced that he has invited

Cohen-Orgad said the private
employers have already accepted
his invitation and he had "reason
to believe" the trade union leader
would also accept. He expressed
confidence that the public would
trust his economic policies which,
he said, were founded on deci-
sions already adopted by the
Shamir government.
Shamir, in his inaugural speech
to the Knesset Oct. 10, warned
that the country has been living
too long beyond its means and

ity regime until economic health

Soviet Missiles Arrive in Syria
TEL AVIV (JTA) Defense Minister Moshe
Arens confirmed that the first consignment of Soviet-
made SS-21 ground-to-ground missiles have arrived in
Syria, but said they did not radically change the balance
of military power in the region.
HOWEVER, Arens stressed that Israel would have to
continue to increase its defense budget because of the
massive rearmament of the Arab states. Priority in the
national budget must be given to defense, he said.
The SS-21s have' a range of about 75 miles, which is
less than that of the SCAD missiles already used by the
Syrians. But they are more accurate, military sources here
said, and can reach targets in much of Israel.

ospitals and aboard U.S. Navy ships off the Lebanese
oast and then taken to U.S. naval hospital facilities in
liaples or to the army hospital in West Germany.
"THAT'S THE STANDARD procedure, the way the
military operates in that part of the world," Speakes said.
[There is no other reason." According to Speakes, 75
Vounded marines and sailors had been evacuated from
ebanon at the time. The death toll stood at 200 as of
>n Eastern Daylight Time on Tuesday.
According to reports from Beirut, most of the
vounded were taken by helicopter to the Iwo Jima, an
iphibious assault ship, the battleship New Jersey and
*e El Paso, an amphibious cargo ship. A marine
Spokesman was quoted as saving that an additional 21
nen were flown by the British for treatment at a Royal
ur Force base in Cyprus.
The reports also said that some dead and wounded
fere taken to a dozen different hospitals in Beirut, in-
cluding the Shiite-run Al Zahra Hospital.

The Jewish Floridian of South County
Pridy. Novembers
A Rabbi
Rabbi Dr. Louis L. Sacks
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.
The central and luminous character in the current Torah
readings from Genesis is Abraham and his family. It is around
him and his household that our bible-portions revolve. What
light can his life story shed upon our personal quest for
fulfillment for our divine drive to move not only forward but
what is more imperative to move upward.
Abraham was the first bible personality whom God com-
manded to advance, to progress. "Get thee out of thy country,
from thy kindred, and from thy father's house ..."
One can almost hear in those hallowed words the divine voice
saying, "Move Abraham. Get out of Mesopotamia with its
pagan cults. You can be more than a foreman in your father's
idol shop. The whole world is before you. Go forth and transform
And Abraham obeyed. And he became "very rich in cattle and
silver and gold." It wasn't long before the small-town lad from
Ur became a wealthy Middle East potentate. Did he stop with
his affluence and opulence? Was material success the terminus
of his progress?
Let us read on in that historic saga of the first Jew.
Wheresoever he came, we are told, "And he called in the name of
the Lord." Wheresoever he pitched his tent, he, in a world of
cruel barbarity, established an oasis of loving-kindness, the
innocent faith in God to a pagan, brutish world and human
kindness to those who hungered for it.
When a moment of crisis emerged and Sodom and Gomorrah
were doomed for destruction, this successful merchant, this
tycoon cattle rancher confronted God himself with the challeng-
ing words "Wilt thou destroy the righteous with the wicked? .
Shall not the judge of the universe be just?"
At a certain stage in his life his concern took a personal turn.
"What," said Abraham to God, "Canst thou give me, when I go
childless?" He wanted more than a biological offspring. He was
not satisfied with merely a beneficiary. He wanted an heir a
child of the spirit. He wanted a father-son relationship bound by
the ties of love, understanding, respect and mutuality of values.
Only by achieving all this material success, eternal salvation,
spiritual transcendence could Abraham stand forth as the
first of the spiritual giants in our national gallery.
And the Torah s verdict is precise. "And the Lord blessed
Abraham in all things." In all things! Fulfillment is only partial
when the spiritual dimension is missing. When it is all-
embracing then progress in its forward and upward
movements is true and fulfilling.
When God commanded Abraham to go forth, our Midrashic
sages explain that he was nudged pushed forward and up-
ward. It was a case of the divine propulsion in man the image
of God in man propelling him to advance.
The motivating power behind goodness in religious faith a
great and abiding faith. Without such a quickening faith in a
word, without God, neither man nor his world can move forward.
"You cannot ascend, for God is not amongst you," said Moses
to a straying and confused people.
Man cannot advance and leave God behind. Man's will drives
him forward but God's power and grace lead him forward. It
is easier to go forward than to climb upward. Yet we must ever
be cognizant that only in the upward direction is genuine
progress. Let us pray then, in the words of the Psalmist, "O
Lord, make thy way straight before." Amen.

Helsinki Final Act barely a

Jewish emigration "has sunk to a

"Anti-Semitism has escalated
dramatically ..." On Capitol
Hill, several dozen members of
Congress cabled Yuri Andropov

Rekunkov on Begun's behalf. It
appears that in sentencing the
Hebrew teacher, Soviet officials
may have believed they could
ignore the world-wide support for
Begun, and get away with it.
Samizdat documents acquired

to a special form of coercion
known as the "pressure cell," in
which they are placed with

Business Brisk
BONN (JTA) Israeli
publishers who participated in
this year's International Book
Fair at Frankfurt reported that
they did well from a business
point of view and enjoyed a
somewhat eased political at-
mosphere which permitted better
contact with publishers from
other countries, some of which
have no diplomatic or cultural
ties with Israel.
The Frankfurt Book Fair is the
largest in the world. It attracted
6,000 publishers from 77 coun-
tries this year and was reported
to have been a major commercial

psychological abuse. The regime
may be using this form of pres-
sure against "nonconformists" in
order to pass it off as prisoner
brutality. Numerous cases of the
practice have been documented in
many regions, indicating that it
is widespread.
Asserting that mail delivery to
the Soviet Union has gone "from
bad to worse," Lorna Adelman
testified for the NCSJ and the
Jewish Community Relations
Council of Greater Philadelphia
on Oct. 4 before New York Demo-
crat Robert Garcia's Subcom-
mittee on Postal Operations of
the House Post Office and Civil
Service Committee. She submit-
ted several hundred letters and
packages that were never re-
ceived by Jews in the USSR,
pointing out that mail is their
"only real lifeline," since many
have had their phone wires cut.

Klarsfeld Foundation.
IN A SPEECH delivered by
Beate on behalf of her husband at
the ORT awards dinner, Serg
promised that he "will do every-
thing in my power to make sure
that Brunner pays for his
crimes not just out of
revenge, but because impunity
for a Nazi war criminal like
Brunner is intolerable for a Jew,
for all Jews."
Serge Klarsfeld s father, Arno,
was taken by the Nazis and
deported to Auschwitz where he
was killed. While conducting
research at the YIVO Institute
several months ago on the Barbie
case. Serge discovered a docu-
ment written, in pencil which
bore the name "Arno Klarsfeld."
Serge Klarsfeld said: "He had
been transferred from Nice to
Lyon's Fort Montluc Prison and
had probably tried to contact
someone with a message for us.
It took 40 years for the message
to reach me ."
