Car Bomb Explosion, Killing Israelis,

wounding almost a hundred
Israelis and Lebanese, Is-
rael fighter bombers ham-
mered at Syrian posts east
of Beirut. At press time,
there were no reports of Sy-
rian planes challenging the
Israeli fighters.
Authorities feared a new
escalation of fighting in
Lebanon, as the Israelis
also struck at PLO forces in
the Bekaa Valley who are
being supported by the Sy-
rians. And in northern Leb-
anon, PLO forces oppesed
to Yasser Arafat, aided by
Syrians, struck at Arafat's
remaining stronghold in the
war-torn Lebanon.
The eight years of civil
war in Lebanon remains
unchanged as nine different
political and military fac-
tions continued their meet-
ings in Geneva seeking a
way to restore Lebanon's
sovereignty. The only con-
sensus reached after several
days of deliberation was .a
resolution to "freeze" the
May 17 agreement Lebanon
had reached with Israel
permitting the Israelis to
have a patrol facilities
when, as and if the Syrians
move out of the Bekaa
Valley when the Israelis
bring their troops home.
Meanwhile in Wash-
ington, President Reagan
named former Defense
Secretary Donald Rumsfeld
as his new Middle East
troubleshooter. Admitting
he has no solution for the
region's problems, he told
reporters, "It is worth our
best efforts." He replaces

Rumsfeld, following
meetings with other Ad-
ministration officials in-
volved in the Mideast si-

efforts to bolster the gov-
ernment in Lebanon, try to
accelerate withdrawal of
Syrian, Israeli and Pales-
tinian Liberation Organiza-
tion forces, and try to nego-
tiate peace between Israel
and the Arab world.

Frid*y. November to
Women Okay for Conservative Smicha
The faculty of the Jewish
Theological Seminary of
America has approved, by a
large majority, the admis-
sion of women to the JTS
rabbinical* school for or-
dination as Conservative
rabbis and one Conser-
vative rabbinical leader
said he was skeptical about
reports that the decision
would cause a major split in
American Conservative Ju-
The vote of 34-8, at special
meeting called by JTS chanceUor
Gerson Cohen, ended a lone-
running controversy in the move-
ment, in which a steadily growing
number of Conservative rabbis
endorsed admission of women by
the JTS for ordination, while a
substantial number of JTS
faculty members remained in
adamant opposition.
THERE ARE 55 faculty
members at the JTS. Three from
the Talmudic program boycotted
the meeting. The 42 present at
the meeting represented nearly
75 percent of the total Faculty
Senate and the affirmative vote
for admission of women was by a
similar majority.
Cohen, who headed the com-
mission he named in 1977 to
study the controversial issue, and
who was chairman of the
meeting, said after the vote that
he regarded it as "evidence that
the Seminary and the Conserva-
tive movement in American
Judaism are able to respond to
the challenges of modernity in
traditional terms."
After the 34-8 vote, a second
motion was passed which called
on Cohen to name a committee,
with Dr. Joel Roth, associate
professor of Talmud and Rabbi-
nics and Rabbinical School Dean,
as its chairman, to review and
recommend criteria for admission
of all candidates to the Rabbi-
nical School, subject to approval
by the JTS chancellor. Roth had
proposed the motion for ad-
mission of women.
approval action would bring a
schism in the movement was
expressed by Rabbi Wolfe
Kelman, executive vice president
of the Rabbinical Assembly, the
association of Conservative
rabbis. He told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that it was
expected that the first women
would be admitted to the or-
dination program at the JTS in
September, 1984.
The Conservative movement
thus joins Reform and Recon-
structionism in ordaining women
as rabbis. There are now some 60
women rabbis, most of them
holding positions as assistant
rabbis, others in administrative
and teaching posts. The (Reform}
Hebrew Union College-Jewish
Institute of Religion, began the
process more than 10 years ago
by ordaining Sally Preisand as
the first woman rabbi in
American history.
Kelman offered a "guess" that
25 to 30 women will be admitted
High Court to Hear Challenge
Of British Oil Ban Against Israel
LONDON (JTA) The British government's ban
on North Sea oil supplies to Israel is to be challenged in
the High Court on the grounds that it infringes the law of
the European Economic Community (EEC). The case is
also likely to involve the European Court of Justice.
The oil had been sold in April, 1981 by Sun Inter-
national and Sun Oil Trading Company to a company
called Bulk Oil registered at Zug, Switzerland. The sale
contract contained the words, "destination free but
always in line with exporting country's government
SINCE EARLY 1979, the British government has
limited oil supplies to other EEC countries, members of
the International Energy Agency and to other countries
with which there is an existing pattern of supply. This
latter clause includes Finland but excludes Israel.

as the first women members of
the JTS Rabbinical School. He
said he agreed with Cohen that
the vote would not cause any
schism in the Conservative
HE SAID "the essence" of the
movement is "reverence for
pluralism" and for "unlimited
freedom of expression and
academic freedom," with the only
limit being the rulings of the RA
Committee on Jewish Law and
Kelman also told the JTA that
in the past 40 years, more than
600 rabbis trained in Orthodox
and Reform seminaries had
applied for admission to the RA
and that more than 400 had been
accepted while, in that same
period, fewer than five rabbis
have resigned from the RA on
ideological grounds.
Kelman, who attended the
meeting, confirmed Cohen's des-
cription of the debate as "full of
debate" but not rancorous.
Kelman commented that a lot of
anger had been expressed prior to
the debate by Conservative foes
of ordination of women. He also
said he doubted that the vote
would affect Conservative
relationships with the Orthodox
movement, which has never
accepted either Conservative or
Reform Judaism as valid.
A GROUP of Conservative
Jews opposed to ordination of
women, called the Union for
Traditional Conservative
Judaism, headed by Rabbi David
Novak of Bayswater, Long
Island, said the decision "defies
all norms of Jewish juris-
prudence." Kelman said the
group was organized last spring
and has about 500 members,
rabbinical and lay.
The First reaction from Or-
thodox sources came from the
Rabbinical Council of America,
one of the major Orthodox rabbi-
nical organizations. Rabbi
Gilbert Klaperman, president of
the Rabbinical Council asserted
that "the ordination of women is
against Jewish law and
tradition." He stressed that the
Conservative movement had
"taken another step away from
normative Judaism and is further
polarizing Jewish life."
Ezrat Nashim, which describes
itself as the first Jewish feminist
organization, issued a statement
asserting that in March, 1972, it
had called on the Conservative
movement to ordain women as
rabbis. The organization, made
up of women seeking greater
equality in Judaism within the
framework of halacha (Jewish
law) said the vote "recognizes the
compelling moral claim of
women's equality as well as the
changed status of women in the
modern world," and was
"consonant with the Conser-
vative interpretation of the
development of halacha.''
proposal began in the movement
when the RA, in May. 1977,
called on the JTS to consider
admission of women to the
Rabbinical School. la a
resolution adopted at the RA
convention in that month, the
rabbis called on Cohen to set up
an "interdisciplinary," com-
mission to study "all aspects" of
the issue. In November, 1977,
Cohen announced formation of
the commission.

TEL AVIV The new Likud-

secular city.
The announcement came after
a prolonged debate which
reflected intense pressure applied
by the Likud-led government in
Jerusalem. Premier Yitzhak
Shamir reportedly insisted that
the religious elements be included
and Finance Minister Yigal
Cohen-Orgad was said to have

Foreign Currency
Rush Resumes
JERUSALEM Israeli in-
vestors, demonstrating a marked
lack of confidence in government-
backed bank shares, resumed
their rush to buy foreign currency
even though the price was much
higher than before the 23 percent
devaluation of the Shekel earlier
this month.
There were long queues at the
banks where Dollars and other
foreign currencies were being
sold. But money exchangers in
East Jerusalem said the demand
was nothing like the panic buying
before the devaluation. Never-
theless, the renewed liquidation
of bank shares forced the govern-
ment to allocate another $80 mil-
lion to maintain their value.
Should Quit Arafat
PARIS Ambassador Ovadkt
Sofer of Israel said in an inter-
view published Sunday that the
West should no longer back PLO
chief Yasir Arafat.
Sofer told Journal du Di-
manche that with the disman-
tling of the PLO there was a good
chance for negotiations on Pales-
tinian autonomy. He said the real
representatives of the Palestin-
ians were those who lived in the
West Bak, and they should join
in the Camp David peace process.
Eltan Forma New
Political Movement
TEL AVIV Former Chief of
Staff Rafael Eitan has formed a
new political movement known as
Tzomet (Advanced Zionism)
which advocates a firmer and
wider Israeli hold over the West
Bank and the Golan Heights.
His supporters in the new
movement are members of the so-
called "Ein Vered" and "Ben
Gurion" ideological groups made
up of present and former extreme
hawkish members of the Labor
Eitan said there were no
present plans to transform what
he stressed was at the moment a
"movement" into a political
party which might contest Knes-
set elections. But he did not rule
out such a development. The new
movement appears to be closely
akin to the Tehiya party but the
former Chief of Staff hinted he
would not necessarily join up
with that party.
Observers suggested Eitan had
formed the movement to serve as
a springboard for him to enter
politics, prefering to do so on the
basis of his own party, which he
would lead, rather, than as a
lower-ranking member of an
existing party.

TEL AVIV (JTA) Senior officers of the Israel
Defense Force who took courses at Marina war colleges in
the US. are critical of the way the Marines are taught to
adapt to combat situations, the newspaper Maariv
ACCORDING TO Maariv, the Israeli officers say the
Marine command lacked "vision and imagination' and
was too prone to "go by the book." That basic attitude
did not allow the Marines to adapt quickly to specific
circumstances not spelled out in military textbooks, the
IDF officers claimed.
They suggested that the Marines tended to rely too
heavily on massive air or artillery support to "soften up"
tha enemy, a tactic that could not be applied to their
mission or situation in Beirut.

Not yet a basketcase
It Was Time for Israel to Act
By London Chronicle Syndicate
The most recent currency
devaluation and accom-
panying economic austerity
measures in Israel were
warmly welcomed by in-
fluential Reagan Admin-
istration officials, Con-
gressmen and Senators,
American bankers and
Jewish leaders. The con-
sensus among virtually all
of them was that these
steps were badly needed.
"It was about time," com-
mented one pro-Israeli
lobbyist in Washington.
As seen from the U.S. vantage
point, Israel had in recent years
lived well beyond its means. The
Government's inability to reduce
consumer spending on largely-
imported, big-ticket luxury items
color television sets, stereo
equipment and automobiles, for
example was highly publicized
in the United States. Many of Is-
rael's best friends complained
openly about the Israeli Govern-
ment's refusal to "bite the
bullet" in 1981 in advance of the
The belt-tightening measures
announced in recent days, there-
fore, played well on Capitol Hill.
The extensive coverage in the
U.S. news media, especially on
television, of the long gasoline
lines and the shopping spree on
basic food products at super-
markets underlined very dramat-
ically the problems facing the
average Israeli, already the high-
est taxed individual in the world.
AS SUCH, they are bound to
help Israel in its continuing quest
to obtain even- more foreign aid
from the U.S. Government
from both the Administration
and the Congress.
The U.S. has always been more
willing to help those who first
help themselves. The image of an
Israel struggling to get its own
economic house in order is an Is-
rael that certainly has a better
chance of winning additional U.S.
financial assistance. That is re-
cognized by all responsible ob-
servers in Washington.
The economic turmoil comes
just as the Congress is in the final
stages of approving the foreign
aid legislation for Israel. That aid
for the 1984 fiscal year consists of
$910 million in economic grants
(an increase of S125 million over
the Administration's recom-
mended level) and $1.7 billion in
military aid, equally divided be-
tween grants and loans (as op
posed to the approximately one-
third grant-two-thirds loan mix
proposed by the Administration).
It is important to keep in mind
that this U.S. assistance re-
presents a substantial portion of
the Israeli budget. Without it
or event with only a reduction in
it there would be even more
serious economic dislocations in
Israel, including additional
emigration and unemployment.
Thus, how Israeli economic deci-
sions are received in Washington
is nothing to take lightly.
THE CRISIS in Israel also
comes while the Reagan Admin-
istration is in the midst of trying
to determine the level of U.S.
economic and military aid for the
1985 fiscal year. U.S. and Israeli
officials are currently going
through a lengthy exchange of
views on the subject. The Ad-
ministration must make a final
decision by the time it submits
its next budget to Congress
sometime in January.
The current examination of the
Israeli economy, in addition, is
taking place with an American
Secretary of State, George
Shultz, who also happens to be an
economist. He sharply criticized
the management of Israel's econ-
omy in July when he met Yitzhak
Shamir and Moshe Arens in
Washington. Shultz urged them
to impose some of the measures
which have just been announced
in Jerusalem.
"While we are haggling with
the Americans over the supply of
additional grants as opposed to
loans," an Israeli diplomat said,
"it is always crucial that we show
our own good faith by accepting
some difficult steps. We have to
show that we are doing the ut-
most to help ourselves."
are also likely to reassure inter-
national commercial bankers that
the Israeli Government is serious
in trying to correct its own pro-
blems. That, at least, is the view
of U.S. bankers with considerable
experience in this area.
"For the moment," one of
them said, "I am convinced that
Israel is not going to lose access
to the international financial
Israel, which has never de-
faulted on any outstanding loan
over its 35-year history, is
dependent on the commercial
banks for short-term credit
beyond the much more extensive
assistance it receives from the
U.S. Government, the private
purchase of Israel Bonds and the
direct cash transfers from Jewish
communities around the world.
These international banks, an
Israeli economic specialist said,
will generally be responsive to Is-
raeli request for loans, especially
when American-Israeli political
relations are good. When the Ad-
ministration and Congress,
moreover, are providing Israel
with more grants as opposed to
loans, the banks will be further
prepared to extend credit to Is-
rael. In short, he said, the banks
largely take their cue from Wash-
THIS WAS confirmed by a
prominent American banker who
asked not to be identified. He
said the banking market is gener-
ally more sensitive to political
upheavals rather than domestic
economic problems in any parti-
cular country. The U.S.-Israeli
relationship, he said, is in better
shape today than it was one year
ago. "Had this current crisis in
Israel occurred a year ago," he
said, "there could have been
some interesting things taking
Still, until the dust settles,
there will be a general reluctance
to accept additional "exposure"
in Israel. Translated that means
less inclination to offer credit to
Israel. "What has happened in
recent days," he said, "will
merely reinforce a natural ten-
dency among bankers to be
I don't think Israel is having a
lot of trouble obtaining credit
right now because I don't think it
has been aggressively seeking
credit," he said.
But Israel, he added, is not yet
viewed in the international bank-
ing community as another finan-
cial basketcase, along the lines of
a Brazil or Argentina. "I think
you have to recognize that when
American bankers look at
countries, they tend to look at
them in segments," he said, ex-
plaining that Israel's credit

worthiness is compared to its
neighboors in the Middle East
(Syria, Jordan, Egypt) rather
than elsewhere around the world.
"Against that region," he said,
"Israel is still pretty credit-
worthy. It is viewed as a Middle
Eastern country, for better or for
worse. We make those distinc-
LOOKING DOWN the road,
he said: "I really don't see finan-
cial institutions cutting off credit
to Israel." He referred to Wash-
ington's continuing strong sup-
port for Israel as, again, critical
in this regard. If the banks were
to stop making loans to Israel, he
said, it would merely further
compound the economic (and
political) crisis in Israel. The
banker, who has carefully studied
the Israeli economic situation,
predicted that the Government
will be forced into further cur-
rency devaluations.
Why is Israel in this current
economic mess? The banker and
other U.S. experts cited the
refusal to cut the budget and
consumer spending, as well as the
continuing cost of the war in
Lebanon, the West Bank settle
ments, imported oil and main-
taining a strong army. This last
item alone consists of some 30 per
cent of Israel's gross national
In comparison, the United
States spends around 6 per cent
Secretary of State Shulu
of its GNP on defense; France 4
per cent; West Germany, 3 L
cent; and Japan, slightly les than
1 percent.
IF ISRAEL could cut its own
defense expenditures, its econ-
omy would not be in such a sorry
state. But given Israel's security-
related problems, that is not
likely to occur in the near future
especially at a time of skyrocket-
ing costs for sophisticated milit-
ary hardware.
In 1970, an Israeli official re-
called, an F-4 phantom jet fighter
cost Israel about $5 million
apiece. But today, the phantoms
are outdated. The new generation
F-15, fully equipped, goes for
some $30 million. The F16,
which Israel is also purchasing
from the U.S., costs some $Z5
million, when spare parts and
training are included.
These built-in problems afflict-
ing, the Israeli economy -
especially the defense burden -
are going to ensure serious econ-
omic headaches for Israel, ir-
respective of the political party in
power in Jerusalem. It will mean
a continued Israeli dependency
on the United States for in-
creased amounts of economic and
military grants. And it will also
mean that American Jews and
other supporters of Israel will be
called upon to increase their own
financial assistance.
The Social Security 'Notch' Effect
Recently, there has been much
concern raised regarding what is
known as the Social Security
"notch effect." Let me take a
moment to explain the origin of
the "notch" and what it really
means to those born between
1917 and 1921.
In 1977 it was realized that an
error was made in the way Social
Security benefits were figured.
This flaw created benefit over-
payments and eventually would
have paid retirees benefits much
larger than their earnings before
retirement. If this error was not
corrected, the system soon would
go bankrupt.
What could be done to resolve
this difficult problem? Could the
government go back and collect
all the money overpaid? It was

decided this was not a fair
solution in the same way it would
not be proper for a company to
ask employees to return wages
due to a payroll mistake. After
much thought, it was decided to
adopt a new formula for figuring
benefits which would affect all
those born after 1916. Unfor-
tunately, to bring the system
back to a sound financial base,
benefits paid under this new
formula would be somewhat
lower than those paid under the
old formula.
To help make the transition
between old and new formulas as
easy as possible, a special five-
year phase-in rule was included
for those about to retire when the
new formulas went into effect
those born between 1917 and
1921. This five-year span has
become known as the "notch
years." The fact is, due to the
phase-in rule, benefits for this
age-group will be somewhat
larger than if figured only under
the new formula. Benefits for
those born after 1921 will be
computed only under the new
quarters paid into the system,
salary levels and the amount
contributed by way of payroll
Presently, there are a number
of bills before Congress which
seek to narrow this benefit gap.
You can be assured that I will do
all that I can to investigate every
avenue available in finding an
equitable and realistic solution to
the "notch effect."

It is also important to point
out that there will not be a 1100
difference in benefits for those
born in the "notch" years except
in a small number of cases at the
maximum benefit levels.
Additionally, individual benefit
amounts will vary under both the
old and new formulas as benefits
are based on the number of

Marianne Bobick, president of
. the South County Jewish Feder-
ation, said the trip aims to give
Federation-UJA contributors a
chance to see what their money is
doing in Israel.
However, there is a spiritual
goal of the mission. "Fart of our
Jewish heritage is peoplehood
and brotherhood," Mrs. Bobick
said. "If by coming to Israel we
can engender a greater spirit of
this feeling then we have done
our job."
That spirit was never more
present than when the group
visited Kfar Saba. a town near
Tel Aviv which is paired with
South County in a program called
"Project Renewal." "Project Re-
newal" is more than "bricks and
mortar." It is a joint effort
between the American Jewish
community and the people and
government of Israel to uplift
previously forgotten Israelis.
Towns and areas in Israel have
been matched with one or more
American Jewish communities.
These American Jewish com-
munities provide social and
educational programs as well as
needed community buildings to
help the poor and less educated
Jews learn to live in a modern Is-
rael. The Israeli government
helps these families renovate
and expand their homes.
The South County group was
greeted in Kfar Saba by a throng
of school children. "We were
really moved by the reception.
Practically the entire school was
playing some type of an instru-
ment," said James Singer who
came on the trip with his wife
Rose, both from Boca Raton.

Reagan Determined Marines to Stay
(JTA) President Reagan
has made clear the United
States' determination to
keep the marine force in
Lebanon despite the terror-
ist attack on the marine
headquarters in Beirut in
which 220 marines and
sailors were killed and
many injured. A similar at-
tack on a French army bar-
rack is reported to have
killed nine and wounded 11.
At least 53 are reported
"We should all recognize that
these deeds make so evident the
bestial nature of those who would
assume power if they could have
their way and drive us out of the
area, that we must be more deter-
mined than ever that they cannot
take over that vital and strategic
area of the earth or for that
matter any other part of the
earth," Reagan said.
DEFENSE Secretary Caspar
Weinberger said the meeting was
aimed at finding out who was re-
sponsible for the attack and for
reducing the "vulnerability" of
the marines in Lebanon. In an in-
terview from the White House on
CBS-TVs Face the Nation,"
Weinberger said that any
decisions will be made in con-
junction with the other members
of the multinational force, noting
that he had been in contact with
the French Defense Minister
Charles Hernu who had gone to
Weinberger said there was only
"circumstantial evidence" now
because of the many "disparate"
groups in Lebanon who are
aiming to prevent that country
from achieving stability. He in-
dicated that speculation focused
on an Iranian group in Lebanon
linked to the Ayatollah Khomeini
which is also believed to have
been responsible for the attack on
the U.S. Embassy last April.
But Weinberger placed on
Svria responsibility for the over-
all situation which led to the
terrorist outrage. "The whole
reason the marines are still there
is because we have not been able
to get the Syrians to agree to
withdraw, we have not been able
to get the Palestinian organiza-
tions to aKrce to withdraw,"
Weinberger said. "The Israelis
said they would withdraw if the
others did, and they have with-
drawn part way"
Weinberger also stressed that
the marines and the other
members of the MNF are in Leb-
anon in order to make the area
"secure" to permit the withdraw-
al of the foreign forces. "That is
one of the things we found most
unfortunate that Syria has not
agreed and apparently will not
agree thus far to any kind of
withdrawal," he said. "And that
is an absolute fundamental nec-
essity before we can get peace in
that region."

The following is brought to
floridian readers by the Squth
County Rabbinical Association.
If there are topics you would lihe
our Rabbis to discuss, please
submit them to the Floridian.
Rabbi Bernard Silver
One person, by force of his or her personality, can be the pivot
of a whole society. Hitler turned a whole nation into an over-
whelming force for hate. Gandhi directed a whole people toward
nonviolence and peace.
In the family aa well, often one person can make the difference
between harmony and strength on the one hand or discord and
despair on the other.
When we think of the power of one person, we can recall that
Frederick the Great once sent this message to one of hia
generals: "I send you against the enemy with 60,000 men."
When the troops were counted they numbered only 50,000. The
general sent a letter of protest and complaint that there must be
a mistake. "No," replied Frederick, "there is no mistake: I
counted you, my general, as 10,000 men."
Every person, by virtue of what he or she is, can count for a
great deal; and, thus, realize the greatest potentialities for good
or evil.
In the morning newspaper we read all about the problems of
the community, the nation and the world. If we really felt deeply
about them, we would probably never get to the second cup of
coffee. But if we ourselves do not feel deeply about certain
things, how then can we blame others because they did not feel
deeply about us and ours?
When we do begin to feel strongly about certain events, we
can actually determine their course. That is why advertising
agencies, business firms, community organizations and

Aldous Huxley expressed it all very well in a phrase he used in
Brave New World: "When the individual feels, the community
Equus is the play that has made perhaps the greatest impact
on me. As many of you know, Equus is the story of a very
tormented young man in whose mind the relationship to his
father, his religion, his sexuality, and the horses which he helps
tend is hopelessly confused. In technical language, he is a
psychotic who, in a moment of frenzy, gouges out the eyes of the
The psychiatrist who treats the young man is, at least as he
was originally portrayed in New York, a very subdued, con-
trolled, and altogether unhappy person. There is no love in his
life; he is a man without passion. As he treats the patient, and
slowly cures him, the doctor begins to wonder. Who is bettor off,
the psychotic with his intense feelings or he with his dull and
uncommitted personal life?
One question of which this drama reminds us has been
discussed in our culture: Can so-called normal people be ab-
normally creative? Or, must greatness always be accompanied
by a kind of madness? Some of the world's great artists have
been more than eccentric Had they been cured of their
emotional upheavals, would they have remained geniuses? We
must leave this quest ion to the sages and turn to another that is
closer to all of us:
The question which Equus raises for us is: How much passion
do we put into our commitments? Or, if you will, how much
commitment is there in our lives that we deem worthy of our
deepest passions? Either way we ask it, unless we understand
the question, we cannot relate meaningfully to any prayer with
rapt attention-

Jewish Agency Aliyah
Chief Kotlowitz Quits
Job Under Fire
The long and bitter
battle over the continued
functioning of Herut ac-
tivist Rafael Kotlowitz as
chairman of the Jewish
Agency Aliya Department
has ended when the
Agency's Board of
Governors voted to remove
him from the post. The vote
was 36-6 with 12 abs-
Formally it means that he will
no longer be chairman of that
department, but he will continue
as chairman of the World Zionist
Organization Aliya Department
until or unless otherwise
decided by the WZO.
The breakdown between the
two organizations which in
practice broadly overlap in
personnel is that the Jewish
Agency deals with immigrants
from lands of distress while the
WZO deals with immigrants from
fee lands.
THE MOVE to oust Kotlowitz
was led by American Board
members representing the "non-
Zionist" (fundraisers) section of
the Jewish Agency. They claimed
that Kotlowitz "could not com-
municate" with American Jewry.
The South African-born
Kotlowitz, a lawyer by profession
and a long-time Betar Herat
loyalist, tenaciously fought the
move to oust him. Recently, he
obtained a temporary injunction
from a Tel Aviv district court
forbidding the Agency's Board
from appointing anyone else m
his place. But, as Board legal
aides pointed out, the injunction
did not prevent the Board from
ousting Kotlowitz.
Last summer, when the Agen-
cy's Board made an inconclusive
move against Kotlowitz, then-
Premier Menschem Begin
retaliated by boycotting a
planned briefing session with the
The Oneg Shabbat Society

The original Oneg Shabbat
Society, operating secretly in the
Warsaw Ghetto under the
direction of historian Emmanuel
Ringelblum, meticulously
documented the Nazis' des-
truction of Polish Jewry during
World War II. Papers written
and collected by the group were
buried in rubberized milk cans,
and retrieved after the war.
As charter members of the
newly reconstituted Society,
Mesdames Weinshank and Heisel
have promised to continue the
work of bearing witness to the
past, and to serve the living
Jewish communities in Israel, in
countries reached by the JDC
and in the United States. All
participants in future UJA
pilgrimages to Poland will also
become members of the Society,
UJA National Chairman Robert
E. Loup announced.
A highlight of the group's
experiences in Poland was
participation in Sabbath morning
services at the Noczik Synago-
gue, the last remaining Jewish
house of prayer in Warsaw.
