"This event has never or-
chestrated as thoroughly as this
year's," said Dr. Larry Charme,
1984 Men's Division Chairman.
"Abby has been very thorough.
This is partially because of his
perspective as immediate past

"Only the last few fine points
remain to be put together from
now until the event on Jan. 11,"
commented Levine.

Filling in Background
GA Passed Many Important Resolutions on Top Issues

300 servicemen were killed, "em-
phasizes the role and importance
of U.S. and Israel being in accord
on goals and strategies for peace
in the Middle East," it was af-
firmed in a resolution on the Mid-
dle East adopted here at the 52nd
General Assembly of the Counci
of Jewish Federations which con
eluded its five-day gathering
The resolution urged "a strong
continuation of the U.S.
mediating role in the Middle
East, working in close harmony
with the Israel government." To
accomplish this there will be
"continued need for U.S.
economic and military aid to Is-
rael, to assure the strength and
stability of the only country
which is committed to the peace
policy in the Middle East," the
resolution stated.
non, the resolution continued,
has "demonstrated anew that
Israel is America's sole stable
and dependable ally in the region
and hence, the necessity for
strengthening United States-Is-
raeli cooperation.''
The resolution commended
"steps already taken in that di-
rection" and called upon the U.S.
government "to move forward
with other measures strengthen-
ing strategic cooperation, par-
ticularly those agreements which
will grant Israel the technical and
financial means to independently
build the Lavie fighter aircraft."
The resolution also denounced
Syria's intransigence in rejecting
the May 17 Israel-Lebanon
agreement and instead encourag-
ing continuing civil war in Leba-
non and undermining the govern-
ment of President Amin Gema-
yel. "Behind Syria stands the
Soviet Union which has resup-
plied Syrian forces and continues
to encourage Syrian intransi-
that Egypt should be brought
back into the peace process "it
has all but abandoned." U.S.
efforts should be directed at im-
plementing the Camp David
accords, the resolution urged,
adding: "All parties need to be
flexible and open in terms of the
negotiated process and not pre-
clude any options that lead to

to Israel's settlement policy in

Agenda, a progressive Jewish or-
ganization that urged the GA to

olution opposing Jewish settle-

proposed by Louis Smerling, a
delegate to the GA from Minnea-
polis. His proposed resolution
stated: "Israel could build on the
gains it made at Camp David by
refraining from actions such as
the construction of settlements
which lead toward the incorpora-
tion of the West Bank into Israel
proper." Many delegates favored
having a resolution calling for a
settlement freeze.
THE CJF resolution on the
Middle East criticized Egypt for
freezing the process of normaliza-
tion with Israel, for not returning
its ambassador to Israel, for
placing obstacles in the way of
normal tourism and trade and for
permitting "a vicious anti-Israel
press campaign, and has recently
supported anti-Israel resolutions
in various international bodies."
A resolution on Soviet Jewry
expressed outrage at the recent
sentencing of Iosif Begun to 12
years of prison and internal exile
for the "crime" of teaching He-
brew. "The continued imprison-
ment of Anatoly Sharansky, the
recent trials of five other
Prisoners of Conscience and the
continued incarceration of an ad-
ditional 12 men who have
violated no laws in seeking to
emigrate from the Soviet Union
or live as Jews while they remain
in the USSR, requires attention
and action," the resolution
It also cited "a dangerous new
anti-Semitic campaign" that was
begun with the creation by the
Soviet Union of an "Anti-Zionist
Committee of the Soviet Public"
and by the use of Jews as spokes-
men. "This campaign has also
included the false allegation of
Zionist and Jewish collaboration
with the Nazis during World War
II and is promoting and expand-
ing anti-Semitism." The resolu-
tion condemned the Soviet Union
for closing down emigration and
for the harassment and imprison-
ment of aliya activists.

Adopts Five Anti-Israel Resolutions

(JTA) The General
Assembly adopted five
anti-Israel resolutions, cal-

denouncing the recent
agreement between Israel
and the United States on
closer strategic coopera-
Yehuda Blum, Israel's Ambas-
sador, condemned the resolu-
tions, charging that "instead of
defusing tension and promoting
reconciliation, the resolutions
add more fuel to the fire" of the
Mideast conflict.
ONE resolution, stating that
the new American-Israeli accord
"will increase Israel's intran-
sigence and its war potential and
escalate its annexationist policies
in the Palestinian and other Arab
territories occupied since 1967,"
was approved by a vote of 81-27,
with 29 abstentions. The United
States, Israel and West
European countries voted
against it.
Another resolution condemned
the "increasing collaboration"
between Israel and South Africa,
especially in the nuclear field,
which, the resolution stated,
enabled Israel to subject the
States of the Mideast to "nuclear
blackmail." The vote on this res-
olution was 101-18 with 20 ab-
Another resolution called for
sanctions against Israel and
demanded that all countries
refrain from giving arms or
economic aid to Israel, and urged
all states to cut diplomatic ties
with Israel. The vote was 84-24,
and 31 abstentions.
BY A vote of 137 in favor, with
only Israel voting against, the
.Assembly adopted another
resolution declaring that Israel's
decision to impose its laws, juris-
diction and administration on
Jerusalem was "null and void."
The United States, Guatemala
and the Dominican Republic
abstained on this resolution.
The final resolution adopted by
the Assembly by a vote of 121-1
(Israel), and 20 abstentions,
condemned Israel's "plundering"
of Palestinian cultural property
during its occupation of Beirut,
and called on Israel to make full
restitution of all such property

Iraq-Iran War Is Not An Isolated Trag
While the attention of
the Western media has
been focused on the Iran-
Iraq War, one may contend
that it is unlikely to be an
isolated phenomenon in the
context of the dormant,
temporarily resolved and
unsettled territorial dis-
putes which have plagued
the Gulf area for centuries.
Dr. Sayed Hassan Amin, the
legal adviser to the Islamic Cul-
tural Centre in London, and a
senior lecturer of law at the Glas-
gow College of Technology,
makes that observation in "In-
ternational and Legal Problems
of the Gulf (Menas Press Ltd.:
London, 1981).
ACCORDING to Dr. Amin,
"many land boundaries in the
region of the Persian-Arabian
Gulf have either not been
demarcated at all, or only inade-
quately demarcated. This is espe-
cially true in the case of the Gulf
States located on the Arabian
side of the Gulf While the
I ran-Iraqi frontier dispute stems
from opposed interpretations of
various international treaties, the
land boundary disputes between
the Arab states of the region are
not usually based on terms of any
treaty or adjudication. Those |
arising between Saudi Arabia
and the United Arab Emirates
(UAE) on the one hand, and the
UAE and Oman on the other, are
classic examples. These counter-
claims on the frontier are merely
related to the allegiances of dif-
ferent tribes in relation to tradi-
tional structure of local control."
The Iranian expert on the
Legal status of the Gulf asserts
that one of the main difficulties
with respect to determining the
continental shelf boundaries in
the Gulf is the presence of
numerous islands (the UAE alone I
claims sovereignty over some 200 !
islands). Most of these islands
and islets, in the 805 km.-long
and 80-322 km.-wide Gulf are
usually uninhabited and small.
For instance, continues Dr.
Amin, there are many low lying
islands to the north of the UAE,
which are salt-plugs formed
during gigantic folding move-
ments. "All these small islands
and rocks are extremely impor-
tant in respect of off-shore boun-
daries, since they are assumed to
generate their own territorial
ticularly meaningful in view of
the fact that the Gulf is nowhere
deeper than 100 metres. Actually,
apart from the deep and narrow
waters of the Straits of Hormuz
leading into the Gulf, the rest is a
shallow sea, studded, particularly
on the Arabian side, with shoals
and reefs, some of them sub-
merging at medium and high
Thus, the territorial sea for the
numerous small islands and "is-
lands" in itself amounts to a sub-
stantial area of the narrow Gulf.
"Yet, the Gulf states claim conti-
nental shelf rights for a consider-
able number of islands (regard-
less of either size and natural
conditions) in addition to their
territorial waters."
For instance, Riad defines the
term "island" as any islet, reef,
rock, bar or permanent artificial
structure not submerged at
lowest tide. (Article 1, Saudi
Arabian Decree on the Territorial
Sea, Feb. 16, 1958). Also, Kuwait
claims territorial sea rights for all
Kuwait islands defined as "a
naturally formed area of land
surrounded by water, which is
above water at mean high water
tides." However, avers Dr. Amin.
Kuwait considers all low-tide ele-
vations (submerged at high-tide)
situated within a 12-mile limit
from the mainland or from
Kuwaiti islands, to constitute the
base-line for territorial claims
It IsHardly Likely to Remain Dormant
As| An Issue in Explosive Middle East
Internal frontiers of the United Arab Emirates
There is considerable talk these days about the Persian
Gulf States and the Straits of Hormuz, but little is popu-
larly known about them other than in general terms
having to do with this area's strategic importance to the
industrialized democracies and the availability of Middle
East oil to them. In this backgrounder, the Media
Analysis Center of Jerusalem offers an informative
discussion of the region from the Arab point of view.
(Article* 1-2, Kuwaiti
Dec. 17,1967).
DR. HUSA IN M. alBahama
of Bahrain reinforces Dr. Amin's
analysis when maintaining that
"although the dispute be-
tween Bahrain and Saudi Arabia
over the delimitation of their off-
shore boundaries has already
been settled by virtue of their
Decree, situated very close to the Qatar
Peninsula. This island has for a
long time been recognized as be-
longing to Bahrain, but Qatar
regards it as part of her own ter-

causes for disputes arising homj tain rights over the vuZe of

DR. AMIN notes that under-
lying the Bahrain-Qatar dispute
has been, among others, the fact
that the main factor for determin-
ing the juri8dictional conflict
among the various rival Arab
powers has been tribal allegiance
and tribal boundaries rather than
the location of formal and artifi-
cial frontiers which do cut across
the range of numerous nomadic
Qatar and Abu Dhabi have
been engaged in a dispute over
the ownership of offshore islands
extending from west to east in
the lower Gulf. Halul, the largest
of these islands, lies about 60
miles off the coast of the Qatar
peninsula. It has usually been
regarded as belonging to Abu
Dhabi, but has also been claimed
by Qatar. As a result of off-shore
oil exploration in the vicinity of
Halul, maintain the two Gulf
experts, the two Shaikhdoms in-
tensified their rivalry over the
ownership of the island.
Each party also contends that
mated. The fact that off-shore
boundaries in this portion of the
Gulf between Iran and the UAE
on the one hand, and between the
UAE shaikhdoms themselves on
the other, have not yet been de-
limited, would undoubtedly dem-
onstrate the intricacy of the
problems at issue." ("The Arab-
ian Gulf States," Librairie Du
Liban: Beirut, 1975, reprinted in
Dr. Amin and Dr. alBaharna
note that the continental-shelf
boundary between Bahrain and
Qatar has not been settled,
mainly because of their dispute
over the ownership of some off-
shore islands and reefs. The
largest disputed island is Ho war

ancestral home of the ruling al-
Khalifah family of Bahrain (be-

claimed sovereignty over the
whole peninsula of Qatar.
In addition one may note that

inlet near the base of Qatar pen-
insula, lies within its frontier. *
Abu Dhabi's claim derives its
historical basis from the settle-
ment made between 1869 and
1880 by some of the rulers' sub-
jects the Bani Yas tribesmen
who later deserted the inlet and
returned Abu Dhabi.
Dr. alBaharna and Dr. Amin
add that Qatar, and possibly Abu
Dhabi, share undefined off-shore
boundaries with Saudi Arabia.
The latter claims the southern f
shore of the Gulf from a point be-
tween al-Maghairah and al-Marfa
on the coast of the Dhafrah to a
point on the southeastern coast
of the Qatar peninsula. That
claim includes about 23 miles of
coastline southeast of Qatar. Dr.
Amin indicates that a Dec. 1965
reported agreement "has not
been put into effect, and the
boundaries concerned have not*
yet been demarcated."
DR. alBAHARNA points
out that the UAE Shaikhdoms
(Abu Dhabi. Dubai, Sharjah, Ras
al-Khaymah. Ajman, and Umm
al-Qaiwain) have problems
relating to their common
frontiers. "These problems are
complicated by the fact that no
recorded data exists about where
the territory of each Shaikhdom
begins and ends. Local investiga-
tion has been going on for some
time by British experts with a
view to the delimitation of the
boundary of each Shaikhdom.
but not much progress has so far
been achieved. Hence, the com
plicated jigsaw-puzzle which con -
stitutes the map of the 82,880
square kms. UAE.
Meanwhile, cont inues Dr.
alBaharna, Abu Dhabi claims
practically half of the present ter
ritory of neighboring Dubai: and
Dubai asserts ownership of part
of the territory of Sharjah, her
eastern neighbor.
Dr. Amin suggests that "as

its individual entity there will be,,
no federal policy on oil. law and

is the case of Sharjah which
claims a 12-mile limit of territor-

tution of the UAE, the power to
define territorial waters is
conferred upon the federal gov
ernment; but Article 21 of the
constitution severely restricts
this authority by stipulating that
each Emirate maintains her ex-
clusive sovereignty over its
natural resources. The constitu
tional complexity and (possibly)
built-in contradiction is
evidenced with regard to the de-
limitation of the continental shelf
(along a 250 nautical mile sea

states of the UAE.

Feeling Sorry for Daddy the Alien
Children of Intermarriage Bring Despair to Their Future

"I feel sorry for Daddy,"
Annie Touchfarber once
. told her mother. "He's the
only one in the house who
isn't Jewish."
Annie's mother is Jew-
ish. Annie, too, is Jewish
since Judaism is a matri-
lineal religion that is passed
through the mother, not the
father. Annie's two siblings
-are Jews, too. But their
father is not and, according
to his wife, "doesn't care
either way about the chil-
dren's religious up-
Annie, now nine years old,
"never questions why she's
following my religion instead of
his." said her mother. "It's not
an issue. Not at all."
BUT IT could be an issue in
the future, at least for Mrs.
Touchfarber. She has no regrets
about her marriage, one that is
strong and vibrant. But, "God,"
she said. "I'd die if Annie didn't
raise her own kids as Jews. I
- -would prefer, too. that she marry
a Jew."
"But." she wryly added. "I'm
not in a position to say anything.

in a position to say anything. But
I know that I'm in less of a
There are increasingly fewer
people who can legitimately
speak out against interfaith
marriages since those couplings
.are more common than ever.
When a University of Massa-
chusetts researcher surveyed
Boston Jews in 1965, only 25
percent said they could be neutral
or accepting if their children
married non-Jews. Ten years
later, almost 60 percent said they
would. Today, almost 40 percent
of all Jews marrying exchange
vows with non-Jews.
interfaith marriages is reflected
in the general population. Almost
three-quarters of the population
approved of marriages between
Catholics and Protestants in a
1978 Gallup poll. In a survey this
.year of 1,200 adults, the Merit
Keport found that only 28 per-
cent felt it "very important" that
couples share a faith. The
reminder rated it from
"somewhat important" to "very
Interfaith marriages have been
posing an evergrowing threat to
the Jewish community for
decades. They signal the ultimate
end-product of assimilation. They
threaten the cohesiveness of
Jews. And, with Jewish popula-
tion declining around the world,
they are a threat to the very con-
tinuity of the Jewish community.
Kvern more important than the
actual marriages is the children
of these marriages. Around
630,000 children live in about
350,000 interfaith households.
About one-third of these are
"convereionary" households
where the Gentile partner is a
convert to Judaism. But
sociologists often rank these
families among the intermarried
because their extended family
network grandparents,
cousins, aunts, uncles includes
people of different faiths.
A RECENT major study com-
missioned by the American
Jewish Committee concluded
that "the great majority of
children from mixed marriages
(without a partner who has
converted) do little if anything
that would link them" with the
patterns and traditions of
Judaism. Twenty-four percent of
the offspring call themselves
Jews. Thirty-four percent call
themselves Protestants or
Catholic. Less than half consider
themselves ethnically Jewish.
And 96 percent do not consider
belonging to the Jewish com-
munity to be very important.
The survey of 117 children of
interfaith marriages (ages 16 to
46| was conducted by Brooklyn
stronger when a Gentile parent
converts to Judaism. Eighty-five
percent of the children of
"conversionary" marriages
consider themselves Jews.
This is more than three times
the number of children who call
themselves Jews who came from
interfaith marriages where there
have been no conversions. The
majority of the children from
these latter marriages, Mayer
concluded, "dc not care one wav
surveyed who were already
married had Gentile spouses.
Ninety-one percent said they
would not discourage their own
children from marrying a non-
Jew. Only a slim 11 percent
would be "surprised" if their own
children did not marry Jews.

Not Many Can Speak Out Against Intermarriage;
They've Already Done It Long Ago Themselves
College sociologist Egon Mayer,
who called the apparent apathy
of these children toward Judaism
a "disaster" for the Jewish com-
But in a recent interview
Mayer noted that at the very
individual level of the children
themselves, intermarriage is not
a problem. None of the children
he surveyed were confused about
their identities. None were torn in
their loyalty to their parents.
None, in fact, had any other dif-
ficulties that one might suspect
could emerge from an interfaith
"WE DID not find any
traumatized kids," Mayer said.
"I found no evidence that in-
terfaith marriage is a serious
problem to anybody." In
research, Mayer elaborated on
the reasons for this relatively
benign effect: "It would seem
that in the highly secularized and
open social climate of con-
temporary America par-
ticularly as it is likely to be
experienced by the children of
mixed marriages having
parents from differennt ethnic
and religious backgrounds is of
negligible emotional significance.
These children grow up in
communities and in family en-
vironments where these dif-
ferences have long been rendered
relatively unimportant."
As expected, Mayer found that
a child's link to Judaism is
or the other about being Jewish.
"Those who identify as Jews
will be the kids whose parents
gave them a Jewish education,"
he said, noting that few in-.
termarried Jews do so.
MAYER ALSO found that
Jewish mothers in mixed
marriages are more determined to
raise their children as Jews than
do Jewish fathers in a similar
situation. About 32 percent of
children with Jewish mothers and
Gentile fathers consider them-
selves Jewish, while only 22
percent of the children of Jewish
fathers and Gentile mothers have
Jewish identities.
This discrepancy could stem
from the halachic code that
passes Jewish lineage exclusively
through the mother: Jewish
fathers of children mothered by a
Gentile may not wish to raise
their children as Jews because
they have been declared outsiders
by Conservative and Orthodox
Jewry. (A recent controversial
policy by the Reform movement
grants Jewish identity to
children of interfaith marriages
regardless of conversion by
the Gentile parent if the
children are raised and educated
as Jews.)
And, in what could have per-
haps the most long-range effect
for Judaism, Mayer discovered
that children of mixed marriages
will probably intermarry. Ninety-
two percent of the children he

would really have been in a state
to see his grandchildren sitting
up there on the bima," said Mrs.

Baltimore. (The family's name

grandchildren, just doesn't
understand. That keeps her at a
distance. They have never been
ugly to my kids. They may have
had thoughts about them, but
there have never been any
Although Helga has never
converted to Judaism because
she is still a Christian, she has
studied Judaism and has raised
her children as Jews. "It was
very important to me to decide
how to raise the children before
we married," she said recently.
But she was "never completely
comfortable" with the decision.
"I was very much in love with my
husband and he was very
adamant about raising the
children as Jews." She also
agreed because she expected the
non-Jewish world to perceive her
children as Jews regardless of
their upbringing. Since the world
would see them as Jews, she
reasoned, they might as well be
raised as Jews.
BOTH CHILDREN received a
formal Jewish education and the
entire family has been active in
Jewish organizations and
synagogue life. While both
children now fully identify with
being Jewish, there have been
moments over the years,
especially when they were young,
when their mixed heritage made
them easy targets for other
When Brian was five, for
example, he came running home
in tears. A friend, he told his
mother, had said that he was
"not really Jewish because your
mother isn't Jewish."
"There were a few other in-
cidents like this." said Brian's
mother, "when I ended up crying
myself to sleep. "
There was also a discrimina-
tion of another sort. The Stein
family was once refused member-
ship in a Conservative synago-
gue. Helga Stein could accept the
theological reasoning behind the
rebuff, but could not accept the
synagogue's staff "insensiti-
vity": "The ugliness hurt. I
know the law. I know they must
observe it. But what bothered me
was the way people dealt with
NOW THE Steins belong to a
Reform temple and Helga Stein
has ensured that many Jewish
traditions live on in her home.
"Our home is more traditional
than my parents'." said Helga's
husband, Leonard Stein. "That's
kind of amusing. My wife has
insisted on having the Shabbos
meal and lighting the Shabbos
candles and saying the blessings
over candles and wine and bread.
The inspiration for all this came
through her."
"In a sense," said Helga Stein,
"I almost converted my husband
because his Jewishness became
more meaningful to him."
Helga's example helped settle
many of her children's doubts
about their identity and about
their mother's. "I don't
remember questioning her
religion," said her daughter,
Betsy, "because she was a part of
Jewish traditions, also."
BUT AS strong a Jewish
upbringing as they had and as
traditional a Jewish home as they
had. the children were still
from the vantage of Jewish law

gnawed at them. "Morally," said
Brian, 17, "I feel that I have
much of Judaism within me.
Morally, I consider myself
Jewish. Legally, I don't. Yet,
ieep down inside, I know my
jfforts have made me a Jew."
"The fact that I wasn't legally
Jewish was upsetting to me,"
said his sister. Two years ago she
went to Israel for the summer.
She was formally converted
Unlike the majority of the chil-
dren in Egon Mayer's study,
Besty Stein wants to marry
within her faith. "I pray to God I
marry a Jew," she said. "It will
be so much easier because I want
to raise a Jewish family. I'd love
to have the same religion as my
husband. It's something I'd like
to share with him."
Her brother is less sure about
not intermarrying. "It doesn't

writes letters to the Boca Raton
News because she is a person
with a social conscience. I think it
would be fair to describe her poli

One does not have to share her
opinions to respect her commit-
ment and her intelligence. This
sense of respect is not always
forthcoming from the readers of
the News.
I reprint below a letter that she
received from an anonymous

appeared in the Boca News. I am
reminded of that old joke that
tells us that a Jew in today's

is sick.
Without overreacting and
without seeing an anti-semite be-
hind every no n-Jewish face, the
following letter does bring back a
sense of reality to Jews living in
South County.

importance this year of soliciting
for workers, for time and energy
and campaign input, not only for
solicitation of funds. He felt
everyone should read at least two
newspapers a day to keep up on
the current events in Israel.
Dr. Charme spoke of our local
nevxis as well as Israel's needs. To
introduce the residents of Boca
Lago to the Federation's services
and Jewish facilities in South

day which Boca Lago residents
will not want to miss.
Everyone who attended the
meeting was extremely excited
about the campaign, having had
the opportunity of hearing Dr.
Larry Charme, Arnold Rosen-
thal, Men's Chairman of Boca
Lago commented. "We are very
lucky to have shared an evening
with Dr. Larry Charme. He is an

The Precious Legacy
In 1943, an exhibition devoted
to Jewish daily life opened in
Prague only a short train ride
from the Terezin concentration
camp. The exhibition was curated
under duress by Jewish museum
officials and attended by a special
audience of SS officers. One of
them, Sturmbahnfuhrer Gunther,
was irritated with the show's
respectful positive tone and in-
sisted on an additional section on
kosher butchering.
All but one of the curators were
liquidated shortly thereafter.
Their story and that of the
Jewish community in Prague is
the subject of "The Precious
Legacy: Judaic Treasures from
the Czechoslovak State Collec-
tions," an exhibition of 350 cere-
monial objects, books, paintings
and embroideries now at the
Smithsonian's National Museum
of Natural History. Paradoxical-
ly, this story of the Czech Jews
could not be told with such force-
ful detail were it not for the
Nazis' mania for documentation,

The steins and the Touch-
farbers are not the norm: most
intermarried families are in-
different to religion. For most, it
is too confusing, too over-
whelming, too delicate, too
threatening an issue. Attitudes of
rabbis and policies of synagogues
toward intermarried couples and
their children are usually cited as
the major influences that can
steer interfaith households
toward or away from
vey and my recent conversations
with intermarried families in-
dicate that children's Jewish
consciousness and affiliation
depends more on the characters
of the families involved and less
on institutions. A very personal
commitment to Judaism marks
such families as the Steins or the
For example, one synagogue's
refusal to accept the Steins as
members did not deter the
family's commitment to
Judaism. They persevered and
they found another synagogue
that would admit them. And they
continued Jewish traditions in
their own home.
The dilemma of how to deal
with intermarriage has widely
divided the Jewish community.
As elsewhere in the country,
Reform synagogues in Baltimore
accept intermarried families. "I
don't think anyone asks
questions," said Rabbi Floyd
Herman. "We don't examine
credentials or ask them if they're
Jewish or not. We accept the fact
that they are Jewish. We try to
make everyone feel welcome."
Conservative synagogues gen-
erally allow the Jewish spouse
and the children of a Jewish
mother to join. Non-Jewish
spouses and the children of a non-
Jewish mother may participate in
the congregation's activities.
JOEL ZAIMAN, rabbi of a
Conservative congregation
thinks its worthwhile to reach
out to interfaith couples to help
ensure that their children will be
raised as Jews. "I think people

MAYER ALSO urged that the
children of mixed and "con-

about Judaism through some
type of independent study that
would be consistent with these
children's notions of religion as a
purely private matter."
Some intermarried couples
suggest that Jews accept their
marriages to help them feel more
comfortable within Judaism.
This, they say, would increase
the odds of their children being
Jewish. "I deeply regret." said
Alice Stein, "that people don't

As for the children of "con-

said many are not comfortable
with their fellow Jews. The
Gentile-born spouse who con-
verts to Judaism and, often, the
Jewish children of a "con-
versionary" marriage "seems to
be a lot better at practicing
Judaism than at feeling like
Jews. It is an obligation of the
Jewish community," Mayer said,
"to create conversion programs
and to follow-up to help them
assimilate into Judaism."

Meet Margolit NavonPart I
Editor's Note: These stories
about Yoseftal and Kaplan
Two neighborhoods in Kfar Saba
which the South County Jewish
Federation has been paired with
under Israel's Project Renewal
Program will appear through-
out the upcoming year. Project
Renewal is a joint effort between
the Jews of the Diaspora and the
Israeli Government to help less
fortunate Jews in Israeli society.
A simple child's game. But for
this four-year-old rudimentary
jigsaw puzzle is not so simple.
Hesitantly, the lad takes one of
the few odd-shaped, colored
pieces of plastic. Slowly, he
places it within the black lines j
which form the outline of an air-
plane. Sometimes, the child
moves swiftly. Other times,
slowly, unsure. As the lad places
a piece correctly into its niche, a
woman's voice can be heard
saying, "Yoffee" or "Nachon,"
Hebrew words which mean
"great" or "correct."
The woman, in her early 30's,
gently points the boy in the right
direction when he becomes con-
fused. She never loses her
temper, never shows anger or dis-
' appointment if the boy falters.
Her'name is Margolit Navon, an
occupational therapist who works
in Yoseftal and Kaplan, two
neighborhoods in Kfar Saba
which have been adopted by the
South County Jewish Federation
as part of Israel's Project
Renewal program.
Without Project Renewal, the
boy might not have received
needed help. If that had happen-
ed, he might have become men-
tally retarded. "Now, he is on the
way to being a normal boy,"
Navon added. Navon, who has
worked in Kfar Saba for four
years, belongs to a team which
includes two psychologists and a
speech therapist. "I do anything
that deals with late develop-
ment," she added. "We ask the
teachers if there are any problems
. too quiet, too noisy. If they
don't catch up with what's been
taught there," she said, adding
that she also sees all the children
from birth to three years old.
The Children can have a vari-
ety of problems including coordi-
nation difficulties. In Yoseftal
and Kaplan, Navon deals with
children from all different back-
grounds. "There is no difference.
Minister Sharir Urges
Support of New
$250 Israel Certificate
Avraham Sharir, Israel's Min-
ister of Tourism, urged leaders of
more than 40 American Jewish
organizations this week "to
undertake the responsibility of
bridging the gap between Israel
and American Jewry" by
promoting the sale of the new
$250 State of Israel Certificate
among their members.
Speaking at a reception
sponsored by the Israel Bond
Organization in New York, Mr.
Sharir said the Certificate has the
potential to encourage visits to
Israel by a large segment "of
more than three and one-half mil-
lion American Jews including
one and one-half million who are
affiliated with synagogues and
Jewish organizations who
have never set foot on Israeli
Mr. Sharir said that the new
Certificate provides the oppor-
tunity "to double Jewish tourism
from the United States in the
very near future."
He said that the percentage of
Jews among tourists to Israel
had decreased from 70 percent in
1950 to only 38 percent in 19&3,
and that over the last ten years,
the number of non-Jewish tour-
ists had increased at a rate that
was more than double that of
Jewish tourists.
"What will become of the Jew-
ish people and their ties to Israel
if this gap continues to widen?"
he asked.
Brig. Gen. (Res.) Yehudah
Halevy, President and Chief
Executive Officer of the Israel
Bond Organization, stated that
the meeting had been called "to
plan ways of bringing a greater
sense of identification with Israel
by millions of American Jews.
The $250 Israel Certificate is de-
signed to strengthen the identity
of the Jews of the United States
with Israel through visits to Is-
Seymour Scheer, former Dep-
uty Superintendent of Banking in
New York State, and Miriam
Handler, a prominent figure in
American Jewish communal life,
served as co-chairmen of the re-
ception. Mr. Scheer and Mrs.
Handler are national co-chairmen
of the $250 Certificate campaign.
You have all of them. You have
them from Morocco, and you
have them from Iran and you
have them from Yemen, and
some of them are Rumanian.
Some of them are Russians,"
Navon said. "They're all different
Jews. We don't put those
selections here. It's not impor-
tant," she said. Rather than the
country, the environment the
children live in bears a greater in-
fluence on the development of the
children, according to Navon.
"The Parents can invest in you
as much as they want, but you
get everything from the neigh-
borhood," she said. "One of the
main aims is to teach the moth-
ers, the brothers, the children
how to develop themselves by
playing, by paying attention, by
listening," she said. "Before,
people didn't pay attention much
to the development of their chil-
dren," she said, "it was enough
for the parents that their children
were healthy and that they go to
school. That was enough. But the
children were weak not healthy.
"They came to elementary
school without getting any
attention at home. No toys. No
games. Nothing. Only clothing.
Good food. Lots of love, some of
them, but that wasn't enough to
develop their children," she said.
It was not that these people were
"primitive," Navon said."
"They just see different things.
They give different priorities to
their way of life," Navon said. "If
they have a certain amount of
money their priority would be
good food, clothing and that's it.
"And mine might be not food and
maybe going to the movies and
concerts and seeing things or
buying toys for my children," she
added. "Any jeans will be better
than buying 10 puzzles for the
children," Navon said in describ-
ing the attitude these people had.

lowing shabbat morning services.
Now it has changed. "Now they
have different priorities in life,"
she said.
"The parents see lots of im-
provements, and it makes them
work at home. They see that not
only food and nothing and love is
enough," she added. "The
parents didn't think toys were>
important," Navon said. "But
it's the main thing in develop-
ment. They develop everything.
Your mind. Interaction between
people. Manners."
Playing with a doll teaches a
child how to behave. "Not to be
vicious as they used to be. Be-
fore the children were bored, and
very dull. They didn't behave
nicely. They didn't obey what
their parents told them. They
used to shout, to hit, to bite.
And I now it has really changed,
she added. "Now you see they are
curious. They want to see. They
want to learn. They're much
more open minded to the world, I
what's going around them," she I
said. The children are not the -
only ones who benefit. Thsir ,
parents are better off now-
"They're not as bitter as they
used to be before. They feel that
they're being taken care of ...
and not just financially which
didn't mean much to them.
"The people care about them
now, about their children. Any .
progress that they see they are
really very grateful," Navon said.
Although "tremendous"
progress has been made in fgur,.
years, Navon added, "We still

Crisis Averted In Israel's Universities
Rabbi Herbert Friedman, the
President of the American
Friends of Tel Aviv University,
was the guest speaker at a recep-
tion and dinner hosted by Sally
and Lester Entin at the Stratford
Arms in Boca Raton on Dec. 13.
The Entins decided to host the
dinner when they learned that
their friend. Dr. Moshe Many,
President of Tel Aviv University,
was coming on a tour of several
U.S. cities.
It was learned Monday, one
day before the dinner, that Dr.
Many's arrival would be delayed
due to pressing economic
problems in Israel and their effect
on the country's universities.
Rabbi Friedman told the guests
that earlier in the week, Dr.
Many and the presidents of Isra-
el's six other universities began a
series of meetings with Israel's
Minister of Finance, Minister of
Education and Prime Minister
Shamir to discuss the critical
issue of government subsidies to
the universities. A solution was
reached which will keep the uni-
versities functioning with an
eight percent cut in government
Tel Aviv University, Israel's
largest institution of higher edu-
cation, has attained its high en-
rollment due to the fact that it is
in the heartland of Israel, with
one half of the Israeli population
living within a thirty minute bus
ride to the campus. Rabbi Fried-
man highlighted the fact that Tel
Aviv University is not simply an
ivory tower of higher learning.
Its faculties and schools are inte-
grated into the growth and devel-
opment of the nation, providing
much needed services such as
dental care, social work services,
medical care and teachers of
special education, and contribut-
ing toward Israel's very ad-
vanced state of technology
through the Faculty of Engineer-
ing and the Faculty of Exact Sci-
"Many American Jews can't
understand why Israel needs yet
another university," stated
Rabbi Friedman, "but the facts
are startling. In the United
States, eight percent of the
Jewish population is enrolled in
universities, while in Israel, the
country of the People of the
Book. Jewish university students
comprise only one and a half
percent (1.5 percent) of the coun-
try's Jewish population. Those
figures speak for themselves."
"The evening was very infor-
mative and enjoyable," stated
Lester Entin. "It was especially
nice seeing so many friends come
together to learn about Tel Aviv
University and join with us to
honor Dr. Many." The guests at
the reception included: Mr. and
Mrs. Max Alpern, Mr. and Mrs.
Sam Catsman, Mr. and Mrs.
Cecil Cohen, Mr. and Mrs. Leon
Green, Dr. Joel Hersh, Mr. and
Mrs. Sam Korman, Mr. and Mrs.
