Guggenheim of the 5th Annual
Dinner Dance, which is being

David Kend has been a
resident of Florida since 1974
when he moved to Boca Raton
from Long Island. His son Peter
was a Bar Mitzvah in Temple
Beth El, which utilized the
facilities at the Moravian Church
because there was no local
synagogue building at that time.
His wife Elaine became the

first two years of the Dis-
tinguished Artist Series of
Temple Beth El. Under her
leadership such renowned artists
as Yehudi Menuhin were brought
to Boca Raton.
Kend was elected to the Board
of Trustees of Boca Raton Com-
David Kend
munity Hospital in 1977. He is
also a member of the Board of
Directors of Hospice of Boca
Raton, Florida Atlantic
University Foundation, and the
Palm Beach County Council of
the Arts. Kend is past campaign
chairman of the United Way
Fund of Greater Boca Raton, and
he is also a founding director of
the South County Jewish
Federation. He is a member of
the advisory board to the NCNB
Bank in the Palm Beach area and
also an active member of the
Chief Executives Organization.
He is a partner in the Chicago
White Sox Baseball team.
Kend is the father of three
sons; Steven is in business. Peter
is a sophomore at Emory and
Robert was stationed with the
Marines during the Lebanon
"There is no doubt that the
inclusion of David Kend as a Co-
Chairman of the 5th Annual

greatly to its success as the
Social Event of our season," said
Dr. Charme.
Anyone who has difficulty with
transportation to the Dinner
Dance, should contact the
Federation Office at 368-2737 so
that arrangements can be made.

Some half a million residents
were evacuated from the canal
towns of Port Said, Is mail ia and
Suez in preparation for the ex-

BY MAY, Nasser claimed he
had destroyed 60 percent of the
Barlev Line. Casualties were
heavy and the fortifications
themselves did indeed take a
beating. But the massive artillery
bombardment of the Israeli posi-
tions across the waterway, and
the repeated Egyptian raids into
the east bank, succeeded more
conspicuously in bringing the

Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei

European Conference on

the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry (NCSJ).
"In recent meetings that I

whenever any other issue is
discussed with the Soviet Union
these issues of Soviet Jewry are
on our agenda," Morris Abram,

Cost of Living
Rises by 11.6 Percent
TEL AVIV The cost of
living index rose by 11.6 percent
during December, bringing the
annual inflation rate for 1983 to
190.7 percent, the Central Bureau
of Statistics announced. The
December figure was the highest
ever for that month, even though
it was lower than the 15.2 percent
in November.
The 1982 inflation rate was
131.5 percent, and at this time
last year the Finance Ministry
was promising that last year
would be a "two-figure inflation
less than 100 percent."
Histadrut Secretary General
Yeruham Meshel has demanded
monthly payments of C.O.L.
increments, pointing out that the
January index increase would
probably be even more than the
December figure as prices had
risen by about seven percent

Jackson Aide Rapped
For Rsclst Remark
NEW YORK The national
director of the Anti- Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith has
labeled as "racism" the
statement by a top aide to the
Rev. Jesse Jackson that the U.S.
government would have done
more to free U.S. Navy pilot Lt.
Robert Goodman had he been
"white or Jewish."
Nathan Perlmutter rebuked
the Rev. Wyatt Walker for the
remark made just before
Jackson's successful trip to free
Goodman from Syria. Describing
as "the first and to date the only
intrusion of racism into this
Goodman case," Perlmutter said:
"Alas, there are mind-frames
among minority as well as in
dominant groups which more
readily don fabrications of pre-
judice than they wear com-
fortably the reality of our
nation'8 race relations progress."
Herzog. to Visit
Zaire, Liberia
Chaim Herzog left for Zaire on
Tuesday where he will spend five
days and then go on to Liberia for
a two-day visit. This is the first
visit to Africa by an Israeli
President since the African
nations severed diplomatic
relations with the Jewish State
after the Yom Kippur War.
Herzog was invited to Zaire by
President Mobutu Sese Seko and
to Liberia by President Samuel
Doe. Both Presidents visited
Israel last year, following the
resumption of diplomatic ties
with Israel.

Hprzna's visit, will he hisnuaetina

Holocaust Was Hoax'
Teacher Fsces Charge
TORONTO Jim Keegstra, a
high school teacher and former
Mayor of Eckville, Alberta, who
taught his classes that the
Holocaust was a hoax, has been
charged by Alberta's Attorney
General with wilfull disse-
mination of racial hatred. He was
summoned last week to appear in
court in Red Deer, Alberta on
Feb. 1 to choose trial by judge or
by jury.
Keegstra was dismissed from
his teaching post last year after
parents complained that he was
indoctrinating their children with
racism. He contended that Jews
were the root of ail evil and were
conspiring to control nations and
the world economy.
Charges of violating Canada's
anti-hate laws were brought
against Keegstra as the result of
an invetigation by the Royal
Canadian Mounted Police, the
national police force, begun last
August. He was charged under
Section 231, subsection 2 of the
criminal code. The law is on the
books since 1970 but there have
been no convictions to date.
Keegstra faces a maximum
penalty of two years imprison-
Assad Urged To
Let Jews Leave
NEW YORK Harry Abadi,
the brother-in-law of Lillian
Abadi, the 25-year-old pregnant
Jewish mother who was brutally
murdered along with her two
small children in Aleppo, Syria
last month, has appealed to
President Hafez Assad of Syria
to allow the surviving members
of the murdered woman's family
to emigrate.
He was joined in his appeal by
Rep. Charles Schumer (D., N.Y.)
at a press conference co-
sponsored by the New York
Jewish Community Relations
Council and the Legal Coalition
for Syrian Jewry.
According to Harry Abadi,
when his brother, Chaim Victor
Abadi, returned home the day of
the tragedy, he found his wife
dead, her breasts cut, her
stomach slit open and her body
mutilated. The hands of her six-
year-old son, Joseph, were cut,
and the body of her three-and-a-
half year old daughter, Sandy,
hacked to pieces and her head
He said the Syrian Jewish
community is "in great danger,"
and noted that the perpetrators
of the vicious murders have not
been apprehended. He said that if
Syrian Jews were allowed to
emigrate, "eighty percent, at
least, will leave." Abadi urged
the Syrian authorities "to appre-
hend those responsible for the
evil murders so that it will not be
repeated against other members
of the Jewish community in
Nobel Prize Winner
Raps Anti-Semitism
Perez Esquivel, winner of the
1980 Nobel Peace Prize for his
struggles on behalf of human
rights, stated that there is
"systematic anti-Semitic ac-
tivity" in Argentina which "must
be overcome" in an article in
Argumento, the news organ of
President Raul Alfonsin's
Radical Party.
The World Jewish Congress-
Latin American Branch reported
that this article is one of a

Perez Esquivel described the
long history of anti-Semitic
persecution around the world,
noting that "till today humanity
is moved by the massacre of
millions of Jews in concentration
camps, the Warsaw Ghetto and
the moving witness of Anne
By August, 1970, when a U.S.-
sponsored ceasefire temporarily
ended the fighting, Israel had
demonstrated its continued mili-
tary superiority by hitting at
strategic targets putatively
protected by Soviet ground-to-air
missiles, and the fortifications
across the canal remained more
or less intact. The expulsion of
Soviet military personnel by the
still novice President Sadat made
the chances of an Egyptian
attack appear yet slimmer.
Consequently, Egypt stunned
the world, not least of all the Is-
rael Defense Force, when,
together with the Syrians on the
Golan Heights, it launched the
Yom Kippur War, with its
surprise crossing of the canal and
the penetration of what had come
to be called "the impregnable
Barlev Line."
Egypt has never acknowledged
that by the war's end the military
tables had almost entirely tur-
ned, and its Third Army was
completely surrounded by Israeli
forces, cut off from its sources of
supply. Many of those familiar
with Western accounts of the war
still maintain that Egypt never-
theless emerged victorious be-
cause it shattered the "myth of
Israeli invincibility," creating an
atmosphere in which it could
negotiate with Israel from a posi-
tion of strength.
honored on Oct. 6, the day of the
canal crossing and of his assas-
sination eight years later, as
much for the crossing of the canal
as for the peace which, Egyptians
stress, the war was designed to
achieve. As relations between the
two countries continue to deter-
iorate, the Oct. 6 achievement
seems to play a far more promin-
ent part in memorializing Sadat
than does the peace with Israel.
The sentiment which the tone
of this official panegyric to Sadat
appears to be addressing, became
unsettlingly clear before the
remains of the Barlev fortifica-
tions. Hearing the Egyptian
guide describe the engineering of
the Israel bunkers each of
which had been replete with a
large ammunition and supply
store and wired up for electricity
and air conditioning could
force even the moat cynical
observer of Egyptian public rela-
tions tactics to concede that if
Egypt was defeated in the war,
she lost, to some extent!
The spectacle of students
clamoring to be photographed at
the entrance of the bunker or by
the charred remains of an Israeli
tank sitting not far from it,
brought a strange feeling of deja
vu to one whose travels in Israel
have included the routine tours of
Arab bunkers and trenches on
the Golan Heights and other sites
in the Jewish State where
vestiges of war have become not
only a source of awe, mourning
and national pride, but a catchy
setting for tourist snapshots as
ADDING TO the strangeness
was the presence of two Egyptian
Hebrew language students whose
acquaintance with this writer
made possible her participation
in the excursion and the unex-
pected detour. They, too,
hastened to be photographed,
calling out their request in a
competent Hebrew that made
more than a few heads turn
inquisitively at the foreigner with
the camera who was being ad-
They had situated themselves
directly beneath a sign painted
over one of the metal slabs that
bore a quotation attributed to the
late Gen. Moshe Dayan and
translated into Enghsh and
Arabic. "The waters of the
Suez," the inscription read, "will
be turned into a lake of Egyptian
blood if they consider launching
an assault on the canal.''
The inside walls of the bunkers
offered testimony of another kind
the graffiti of Egyptian
soldiers who had taken the place.
Looking at the clutter of names,
most of which were identified as
"fighter in October," a student
could be heard commenting that
Egypt would "never allow Sinai
to be taken again."
One of the Hebrew students,
who had grown up in Suez and
been evacuated with his co-
inhabitants after the 1967 war,
remarked in Hebrew, "These
bunkers caused us a lot of suffer-
ing, you know." There was little
hostility in the tone of his com-
ment, and the reactions of other
students, who by this time had
surmised that the incongruous
foreigner among them was Jew-
ish, indicated neither resentment
nor the delight of a victor con-
fronting the vanquished with his

Europe, are evidence of a
Jture which the third Reich
snded to ridicule in a museum
lieu tod to an "extinct race."
THE MUSEUM had its
jins in the work of historian
[lomon Hugo Lieben (1881-
42), who in 1906 created the
Jganization for the Founding

ise the collection.
|n 1942, Reinhard Heydrich,
Jer's chief officer in the Pro-
tectorrate of Bohemia and
Moravia, and SS Untersturmfuh-
rer Karl Rahm designed a
program that would completely
distort the museum's purpose of
preserving human culture.
A NAZI charter established a
"Central Jewish Museum" to
collect and store Jewish posses-
sions "of both historical and
artistic value." The outside world
was told that these Jewish pos-
sessions were beng taken into
temporary custody until they
could be restored to their proper

machine was applied to the col-
lection and preservation of a wide
range of Jewish artifacts
liturgical books and manuscrips,
popular novels, paintings and
folk crafts, furniture, pianos,
kitchen utensils, clothing and
synagoue implements.
By the time they were finished
in 1945, the Nazis had amassed
more than 94,000 items filling
eight historic buildings in
Prague's Jewish Quarter and 50
warehouses throughout the city.
Many of these objects were sent
through the mail as small com-
munities hastened to comply
with the mandate to relinquish
their worldly possessions for cen-
tralization and inventory.

the Jewish Museum were forced
to participate in an Official
Planning Commission for the new
Nazi museum. They had to
develop administrative and
exhibition programs for the
museum, as well as catalog and
conserve all the incoming items.
An experienced museum profes-
sional named Josef Polak was in
charge of the museum's ac-
tivities, which grew to include
scores of Jews in the arts and
humanities who were compelled
by the Nazis to participate in the
overwhelming task.
In addition to the inventory,
the staff produced a collections
guide and four private exhibi-
tions for Nazi officers, held in
synagogues that were adapted
for this purpose.
As the volume of objects sent
to Prague increased, the Jewish
population was decimated by
regular deportations to nearby
concentration camps. The Jewish
curators hoped they could
preserve for all time the legacy of
European Jewry, and their
careful concern and care for these
objects was their silent resistance
to the Nazis.

the Jewish curators were also
sent to their deaths. For a year
following the war, objects
continued to be sent to the
museum, but these were of a dif-
ferent nature. They included
items from Terezin and other
concentration camps, such as
drawings, diaries, photographs
and clothing.
The museum at this time was
under the auspices of Prague's
Jewish Fommunity Council
employing the few surviving
Jewish curators. They soon
realized they did not have the

In November 1949, The
Council offered as a gift to the
Czechoslovak government both
the historic monuments of
Prague's Jewish Quarter and the
thousands of objects which had

that this important legacy is now

The Jewish Floridian, of South County
Friday, January 27,1
Among Presidential Hopefuls
(JTA) The Rev. Jesse
Jackson's success in ob-
taining the release from
Syria of captured Navy flier
Lt. Robert Goodman may
result in a major challenge
to the Democratic Party's
traditional consensus in
support of Israel.
Jackson and former Sen.
George McGovern of South
Dakota have, since entering the
race for the Democratic nomina-
tion for the Presidency, made no
secret that differ from the six
other candidates in that they
believe that Israel shuld be
pressureed toward negotiations
aimed at a Palestinian homeland.
But Jackson's flight to Da-
mascus has given him both the
publicity and the credentians, at
least in the media, to make
foreign policy and particularly
the Middle East a major issue in
the Democratic primaries as the
campaign is now in full swing.
The civil rights leader had not
een left Damascus when he began
arguing that the U.S. cannot
favor Israel at the expense of the
Arab states. "Any policy that
excites one nation and incites
others is not a good policy," is
the way he puts it.
BY CONTRAST, former Vice
President Walter Mondale, and
Senators John Glenn of Ohio,
Gary Hart of Colorado, Alan
Cranston of California and
Ernest Hollings of South
Carolina, and former Florida
Governor Rubin Askew, all have
emphasized the traditional U.S.
friendship for Israel. They have
accused the Reagan Administra-
tion of straying from the prin-
ciples of the Camn David adrflp-
ments, and castigated it tor
arguing in public with Israel.
AT THE same time, a new
consensus appears to be
emerging in the Democratic Par-
ty to demand that the U.S. Ma-
rines be pulled out of Lebanon as
soon as possible. Glenn is the
only one of the eight Democratic
Presidential hopefuls who has not
called for a pullouy, although he
has warned against an escalation
that could lead to war between
the U.S. and Syria.
However, even many of the
supporters of the various candi-
dates accept President Reagan's
views that such a pullout would
end chances for uniting Lebanon
and badly damage American
interest in the Middle East.
CRANSTON addressed this
issue in a recent interview with
The New York Times." If we pull
out of Lebanon, we plainly would
not be pulling out of our interests
in the Middle East. Our real
interests,'' he said. "I don't think
we have a deep national interest
in Lebano. And we would main-
tain our close relationship with
Israel and continue to be com-
mitted to Israel's security and
All of the Democratic candi-
dates maintain they are com-
mitted to Israel's security and
survival. Mondale, the acknowl-
edged frontrunner, has a long

record of support for Israel and
close ties to the Jewish com-
munity going back to his days as
a Senator from Minnesota and as
a protege of the late Hubert
However, some supporters of
Israel have been put off by the
fact that Mondale was President
Carter's Vice President. Moshe
Day an, in his memoirs, describes
how Mondale was the Adminis-
tration official selected to harshly
criticize visiting Israelis. At the
same time, Carter's National
Security Advisor. Zbigniew
Brzezinski. in his memoirs,
criticizes Mondale for being
opposed to pressure on Israel.
IN THE current campaign,
Mondale has accused Reagan of
undermining the Camp David
peace process and failing to give
the Middle East his personal at-
He charges that the Reagan
policy is built on "illusions" that
Saudi Arabia can moderate the
behavior of other Arab states.
That King Hussein of Jordan
would come to the negotiating
table "if only we weakened our
adherence to Camp David," and
that the U.S. "could make new
friends inthe region of holding
Israel at arms length."
Mondale said recently that
"instead of backing away from
strategic cooperation with Israel,
as the Reagan Administration
has done repeatedly, I would
make it meaningful and per-
manent." He said he would also
urge Egypt to "resume its
promised normalization of
relations with Israel."
Mondale criticized the Admin-
istration's support of the meeting
in Cairo last month between
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion cnier Yasir A ratal and
Egyptian President Hosni
Mondale's chief rival from the
Democratic nomination, Glenn,
has not had Mondale's close ties
to the Jewish community. While
opposing the sale of AW ACS to
Saudi Arabia in 1981 he had
approved the sale of F-15s to the
Saudis in 1978. He had strongly
criticized Israel's bombing of the
nuclear reactor in Iraq and had
supported a "moratorium" on
Glenn has also come under
criticism for saying at various
times that the U.S. should have
contacts with the PLO. But in a
speech to the Foreign Policy As-
sociation n New York in Septem-
ber he said the U.S. should
"neither recognize nor negotiate"
with the PLO until it abandons
terrorism and renounces its
pledge to destroy Israel.
In the same speech, Glenn
opposed any concessions to the
Arab states "that would en-
danger Israeli security." He said
that the U.S. may well limit the
arms to Arab countries "so long
as they remain outside the peace
process." He, too, has accused
the Administration of retreating
from Camp David and of a policy
during its first 16 months of
keeping Israel publicly at arms
length. He has also faulted the

public issue of its differences with
The three other senators in the
race are all avowed supporters of
Israel. Cranston has been one of
Israel's staunchest supporters in
the Senate and as a member of
the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee has constantly
defended the Jewish State. He
has opposed weapons to Arab
countries for fear they will be
used against Israel.
Cranston also has accused the
Administration of backing away
from Camp david. He has main-
tained that Israel is the only true
friend of the U.S. in the region
andonce the Arabs realize that
the US. will not abandon its com-
mitment to Isrel they will be
wiling to negotiate for peace.
Hart, a member of the Senate
Armed Services Committee, has
called Israel a "strategic" asset
and a "dependable ally." Support
for Israel is morally right," he
said in a Chicago speech. "It was
right in 1948. It is right today.
And it will always be right." He
has opposed arms to Arab states
who refuse to deal diplomatically
with Israel. He has also warned
that dependence on Arab oil is a
threat not only to Israel's
security but to that of the U.S.
Hart has also denounced calls
for concessions by Israel until the
Arab states agree to negotiate
with Jerusalem. He has urged the
Administration to stop "public

hands of those who seek to delig-
itimize the very existence of
Hollings, like Glenn, voted for
the sale of F-15s to the Saudis
but not against the AWACS sale,
in aaaition, he got into some hot
water when, during a Senate
debate, he referred to Sen.
Howard Metzenbaum (D., Ohio)
as the "senator from B'nai
B'rith." He later apologized.
Hollings also has criticized the
Administration for neglecting the
Camp David process. He believes
the autonomy talks should be re-
vitalized as the best means of
solving the problem of the West
Bank, including settlements. He
has called Israel "our best friend
in the Middle East" and a
strategic asset.
ASKEW HAS no national
record on Israel but has main-
tained a pro-Israel stance in the
campaign. He has been quoted as
sayng that the Israeli settle-
ments in the West Bank are not
an obstacle to peace and should
not be moved. He added that
Israel is justified in building the
settlements as ong as there is no
peace agreement.
Jackson maintains that he
supports a secure Israel and sup-
ports the Camp David peace
process. But he has criticized the
recent agreement between the
U.S. and Israel on strategic coop-
eration as a "blank check" for
Israel without any concessions on
the settlements in the West Bank
or Israel's occupation of the West
Bank, Gaza and the Golan
He charges also that the U.S.
is in complicity with Israel in its
invasion of Lebanon. Jackson
argues that the U.S. must also
seek friends in the Arab world.
"The best way to defend Israel is
to relieve Israel of having so
many enemies," he contends.
to talk to the PLO and favors a
Palestinian homeland in the West
Bank and Gaza. He met with
Arafat in 1979. He has also
sought to separate Zionism from
Judaism. "Zionism is rooted in
race, it's a political philosophy,"
he said in a recent interview in a
New York magazine. "It's a poli-
tical philosophy. Judaism is
religion and faith; it's a religion."
But during a July, 1980 ad-
dress before the convention of the
American Federation of Ramal-
lah Palestine in Birmingham,
Ala., Jackson excoriated Zion-
ism. He reportedly stated: "We
have the real obligation to separ-
ate Zionism from Judaism .
Zionism is a kind of poisonous
weed that is choking Judaism."
A 19-page fact sheet sent last
Oct. 6 by the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith to its
national executive committee,
before Jackson announced his
candidacy, charged him with a
wide array of "insensitive and
troubling" public actions
"particularly in respect to Israel,
the Holocaust and Black-Jewish
ONE SUCH example cited in
the ADL fact sheet concerns a
statement Jackson made during
his 1979 Mideast tour. He was
quoted as saying: "I'm sick and
tired of hearing about the Holo-
caust and having America being
but in the position of a guilt trip.
We have got to get on with the
issues of the day and not talk
about the Holocaust." He
reportedly added: "The Jews do
not have monopoly in sufferng."
He recently claimed that this
was not an anti-Jewish remarkj
but that he was seeking to stress
that unless the Holocaust is kept
"in perspective it can be
damaging. We have ugly
dimensions of our past. They i
must give way to our hope for the |
McGovern also maintains that
the U.S. has "a special commit-
ment to Israel" and says he I
would be willing to enter a
defensive agreement with the
Jewish State. But he argues that |
the U.S. has to be "more even-
handed" and "not give Israel a
blank check unless they take
more effort than I've seen o
compromising on the West Bant
and keeping open the door to
eventual settlement of that area
bv the Palestinians."

Consul General Trigor Addresses
Americans of Tel Aviv University
"The challenge for Israel in the
twenty-first century will be
education and technology. Tech-
nological advantage will be the
key to Israel's survival." These
were the opening remarks of the
Honorable Yehoshua Trigor, Is-
rael's Consul General to Florida,
when he addressed a group of
South County residents at a
meeting of Boca Raton Chapter
of the American Friends of Tel
Aviv University on Jan. 9 at the
home of chapter chairman, Jim
The Consul General also in-
formed those present of the
impending discussions between
Israel and the United States
about creating a free trade area.
A joint Israel-U.S. commission
will study the potential arrange-
ment, Trigor said. Such an
arrangement would be
tremendously beneficial to the
future of Israel's exports.
Consul General Trigor con-
cluded his remarks by examining
the future of Israel's security. He
clarified the fact that there is no
truth to the rumor that Israel's
army is in the process of pulling
completely out of Lebanon.
Rather, it is very important that
for security reasons, the Syrians
not be allowed to push to the

No details of these meetings
were disclosed. A WJC spokes-
man confirmed, however, that
East-West relations and the
latest Middle East developments
were discussed and suggested
that positive movement on
Soviet-American relations may
be near.
"THE WJC has made clear.
, during these as well as our other
discussions, that we expect an
improvement in East-West rela-
tions which is objectively
desirable should also have a
beneficial impact on the Soviet
Jewry question," the spokesman
said. He stressed however that
there should be no expectation

First, Israel has only four million
people as opposed to 150 million
Arabs. Second, among all those
Arabs, Israel is only recognized
by Egypt. Also, there is a
tremendous financial disparity.
The Arabs' financial advantage
has them very well prepared

and Valeska Picker to head up
this year's campaign at Palm

metrist, retired to Delray Beach
from Pottsville, Pa. in 1978. He
has been active in other UJA-

served locally as a Palm Greens I
court captain in 1982. In addi-
tion, Anton has been active in
other Jewish groups, including
B'nai B nth and ZOA. He is
currently a Temple Sinai
Valeska Picker is originally
from Verona, N.J., making South
Florida her home in 1976. While
living up north, she was Presi-
dent of her temple's Sisterhood
and chaired many additional
committees. Since moving to
Delray Beach, she has been
involved with the American
Cancer Society and Bethesda

has been the recipient of numer-
ous awards including a UJA
Award of Merit in 1982 and was
chosen to be one of the top ten
volunteers in South County. Mrs.
Picker is also a member of
Temple Sinai.
In January. 1849, a group of
Jews who had fled from Germany
during the revolutions and
bitterness that existed there in
the 1840 s, joined together. At
that time, the New York City
charter had restrictions against
the consecration of ground for
burial purposes. In order for
them to have and own a Jewish
cemetery, nine men participated
in a memorable conference held
on Ludlow Street. It was then
and there that the Independent
Order of the Free Sons of Israel
was born. Maintained in a spirit
of altruism and vowing not just
to preach but rather practice,
they pledged to live up to the
ideals of the Brotherhood of Man
as exemplified in its motto-
From the modest start of a
small number of determined
Jews, imbued with a deep-rooted
consciousness of their Jewishness
and their Americanism, the
organization has grown until
today it is ranked as one of the
leading organizations of its kind
taking an active part and
exerting a profound influence
upon all movements for the
country's betterment. The name,
Free Sons of Israel, was inspired,
almost prophetic. For it was more
than a century later that a small
area of land, a haven for the
rejected, the homeless and the
needy Jews, called itself -
As time went by, lodges were
formed throughout the country.

The Free Sons of Israel has
evolved into an organization ded-
icated to fighting for Soviet
Jewry, leading the battle for
fighting Anti-Semitism, helping
Israel and not forgetting the
cause of Americanism which ..
made their existence possible.
Each year, many thousands of
dollars are distributed in scholar-
ships, supporting camps for
handicapped and underprivileged
children and distributing toys for
children who are physically,

capped, regardless of race, color,

Germans Who Deny Holocaust
May Be Subject to Penalties
BONN (JTA> Draft
legislation which would provide
criminal penalties, including
prison rms, for persons who
deny publicly that the Holocaust
ever occurred, will be considered
by the West German parliament
this year, according to Justice
Minister Hans Engelhard.
Under the proposed law, the
maximum penalty for denying
that Jews were persecuted and
systematically killed during the
Nazi regime, would be three
years' imprisonment. The
punishment would vary depend-
ing upon whether the courts
found the offending statement
constituted "approval of Crimea"
or was merely an "insult."
The Justice Ministry, which
drafted the legislation, is
presently consulting with the
state governments of the Federal
Republic to ensure a solid major-
ity for the measure. Last year, a
similar law was rejected by the
Bundesrat (upper house) which is
composed of representatives of
the federal states, on grounds
that it was too vague and could
have a negative impact on
historical research. Existing laws
allow private individuals to sue
persons who deny the Holocaust.

Super Sunday Plans Underway
As Sunday, April 1 fast ap-
proaches, the first Super Sunday
Cabinet meeting by Chairperson
Gloria Massry was held. "This
event will be a combined effort
with three other South Florida
Federations. In addition to South
County, West Palm Beach,
Greater Fort Lauderdale and
South Broward will all pool their
resources in making Super
Sunday 1984 a South Florida
event," said Mrs. Massry.
The first cabinet meeting was
held on Jan. 12 under the
leadership of Gloria Massry, last
year's volunteer coordinator. Ad-
ditional meetings are planned
through January, February and
Mrs. Massry was joined by a
large group of associate chairper-
sons, many seasoned Super
Sunday veterans. Mrs. Massry's
associate chairmen for food will
be Ben Karpen, Palm Greens II
Campaign Chairman, and Mike
Mortman. Nat Herman, another
veteran, will once again chair the
publicity department. Much
success depends on the general
South County community being
aware of the day, and "I will be
sure they are," said Herman.

Orgad still sounds optimistic
that his austerity program will be
adopted and spoke of coopera-
tion. But the economic summit he
has been holding with leaders of
Histadrut and the Manufacturers
Association ended without agree-
ment. Its sole result was to
establish a joint committee to
study ways to encourage exports
and economic growth and
prevent unemployment.
Economic Committee was
scheduled to meet later to discuss
implementing the decision taken
last Friday to reduce government
expenditures by nine percent.
Each ministry has been asked tc
submit a list of budget cuts
aimed at that goal.
But Aharon Uzan of Tami whc
is Minister of Labor and Welfare,
served notice in advance that his
ministry could not possibly
absorb the required cutbacks.
Defense Minister Moshe Arens is
also expected to fight cuts in the
defense establishment. Arens
told Voice of Israel Radio that
the proposed cuts would limit the
procurement of military equip-
ment and reduce manpower in the
armed services. But he said they
would not limit policy options in
Despite these obstacles
Cohen-Orgad said, "I assume
that cooperation between these
three factors and this coopera-

he referred to are labor, manage-
ment and government.
ning at an annual rate of nearly
200 percent, exports down and
foreign currency reserves danger-
ously low, a leading business man
has called on the entire public to
demonstrate readiness for
economic sacrifices.
Riwella Bruk will act as
Associate chairperson for
volunteers. Mrs. Bruk, an active
Estancian in Federation and a
member of the Women's Cam-
paign Cabinet, will be responsible
for recruiting all the volunteers
required to make this "hap-
pening" a success. It is a massive
effort and she will have the
assistance of associate chair-
persons Toby Hertz, 1983 general
Super Sunday chairperson, and
Ruth Krawetz, former staff
associate at the Federation who
had primary responsibility for
last year's special day.
Joel Shapiro, associate
chairman of "logistics and back
room," is a relative newcomer to
the annual phone-a-thon. Joel has
been active in South County
Jewish singles. Carol Porter will
be assisting in the massive
assignment of card organization.
At the conclusion of this first
meeting, Gloria Massry said,
"Super Sunday is the highlight of
this year's campaign and I am
enthusiastic, pleased and con-
fident that even greater numbers
of our brethren will be reached
during this 1984 phone-a-thon."
The next Cabinet meeting will be
held on Jan. 26.

Henry Chosen Charles H. Moss
\ Co-Chairmen Named
At High Point
The 1984 UJ A- Federation
I Campaign has officially gotten
[ underway with the recent an-
nouncement by Benjamin
Bussin, Family Division Chair-
man, of two Co-Chairmen to head
up the High Point 1-7 Campaign.
Henry Chase n is a "snow
bird," dividing his time between
Boston, Mass. and Delray Beach.
He is president of the H.D.
Chasen Company, Inc. of Sumer-
ville and Wilmington, Mass. For
23 years, Chasen was technical
advisor in the Chemical
Engineering Department of the
Massachusetts Institute of Tech-
nology. Chasen has always been
committed to Judaism. He is a
member of four synagogues in
the greater Boston area as well as
Temple Emeth of Delray Beach.
This is the fourth year that he
has chaired the campaign at High
Point and considers it "an honor
to assume this position."
Charles H. Moss, a former
insurance broker from Buffalo,
N.Y., will assist Henry Chasen in
the running of this year's
campaign. Moss has been a
permanent resident of South
Florida since 1979. Since moving
to Delray, he has been very in-
volved in local Jewish activities.
He served as a volunteer in last
year'3 High Point Campaign, and
is currently president of the
Temple Sinai Brotherhood. Israel
has always played an important
role in Charlie Moss' life and he is
an active member of his local
branch of the Zionist Organiza-
tion of America. "I am very
enthusiastic and expect this
campaign to be the best one ever
at High Point," commented
From left to right: Al Gortz, Dr. Iz Bruk, Jeffrey
Deutch, and Dr. Arnold Berliner. Committee

Estancia Initiates Men's Campaign
On Tuesday, Jan. 10, a kickoff
meeting was held for the Men's
Estancia Division campaign at
the home of Al Gortz, Chairman.
Also in attendance were Dr. Iz
Bruk, Jeff Deutch, Dr. Arnie
Berliner. Meetings have also been
held with the other committee
This year, the Estancia Men's
committee is the largest and
most dynamic. "All members of
the committee are most excited
about the prospects of the
campaign this year and look
forward to its great succcess,"
commented Gortz.
Among the agenda items dis-
cussed was the Joint Men's and
Women's Estancia function, the
2nd Annual Toast to life Cocktail
and Dinner Party to be held
Saturday evening, March 3, at
the home of Dr. Burton and
Karen Wollowick. Chairing this
event will be Al Gortz and Nina
All Estancia residents are
requested to mark their calendars
with this date. Invitations will be
sent shortly.
Sharon Fails in Bid for Aliya
Post With World Zionist Body
Ariel Sharon has failed in his bid
to be elected chairman of the
World Zionist Organization-
Jewish Agency Aliyah Depart-
ment. In a dramatic secret ballot
at the Zionist General Council
meeting here 59 votes were cast
against the former Defense
Minister, while 48 were cast in his
favor. The wide margin surprised
the pundits who earlier were
predicting neck-to-neck vote.
Leon Dulzin, chairman of the
WZO executive, said it had been
a "democratic session." He said
there was no need for him to
reiterate his statements made
these past few days, namely, that
Sharon was unsuitable for the
aliya department post, and noted
that the post was being held open
for Herat. (Dulzin, of the Liberal
Party wing of Likud, runs the
department temporarily.) "I hope
Herat will nominate a candidate
we can all agree on," he said.
man Gideon Abramowitz, plainly
bitter at the vote, said Dulzin's
words were "a contradiction .. .
we have to put up someone who is
going to satisfy somebody living
in Los Angeles or wherever .
there is a witch-hunt against a
minister of the government."
This was a reference to the fact
that Sharon serves as Minister
Without Portfolio in the present
Both Premier Yitzhak Shamir
and Defense Minister Moshe
Arena urged the Zionist General
Council to endorse Sharon's
candidacy. The Council's decision
to flout their advice made the
vote all the more significant in its
broader political ramifications.
Jerold Hoffberger of Baltimore,
chairman of the Jewish Agency
Board of Governors, opposed
Sharon's candidacy. While he
praised the retired general as a
military man, he asserted that he
was not a person diaspora youth
would follow.
Likud Knesset member Ehud
Olmert told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency, just hours
before the vote: "They (Sharon's
opponents) want to destroy him
SHARON'S rejection by the
Council despite heavy pressure
exerted by Shamir is a blow to
the former Defense Ministers
aspirations to make a political
comeback. It is also a stinging
blow to the prestige here and in
the diaspora of Shamir himself.
Influential in the voting was
the reported determination of
Hoffberger to derail the Sharon
candidacy even if it were ap-
proved by the Council. Hoff-
berger reportedly told Shamir in
a phone conversation earlier last
week that he opposed Sharon and
that he would have the Agency's
Board of Governors reject him.
Without the Board's approval,
Sharon could not have taken over
the aliya department post.

The Hadassah Organization

More than 200 members at-
tended the fund-raiser.
"The final figures aren't in
yet," Knee said, "but let's just
say that the HMO benefited
greatly from the luncheon."
The luncheon included

Mrs. Alfred Saxe, who brought

Soviet Jewry Newsbreak
The past year marked the
solidification of a shift in policy
toward Soviet Jews, according to
a survey of 1983 released by the
NCSJ. Ninety-seven Jews left the
Soviet Union in December,
bringing the total for the year to
1,315 lower than any other
year since the current phase of
emigration began in 1971.
Andropov has created new
forms of legitimizing official
policy toward the Jewish
minority, elements of which
evoke memories of the Nazi era
and Stalin's last days.
It involves four separate but
interrelated features:
1) an end to emigration;
2) an intensification of forced
cultural and linguistic assimila-
3) a broadening of the "anti-
Zionist" propaganda campaign,
drawing into it new anti-Semitic
elements; and
4) the cutting off of Soviet
Jews from relations with others
According to the survey, a
pattern of institutionalized
oppression has been established
through new measures, which
have resulted in increased
harassment of Jews trying to
emigrate or practice their

with Israel, was stressed by
Defense Minister Moshe Arens in
'his address to the Zionist General
Council meeting here.
The pending arms deal be-
tween Bonn and Saudi Arabia is
"a source of great concern to us,"
Arens said. It includes "very
advanced arms" such as West
Germany's Leopard Mark II
tank, considered by military
experts to be the best in the
world, armored personnel carriers
and anti-aircraft systems, Arens
"We are definitely and comple-
tely opposed to this," Arens said.
He called on American Jewry to
"demonstrate our opposition and
your opposition." He maintained
that it was "inconceivable" that
Germany should contemplate
selling arms to a country
. wowedly at war with Israel.
The arms sales issue is ex-
pected to figure high on the
agenda of Chancellor Helmut
Kohls talks with Premier Yit-
zhak Shamir and other officials
when the West German leader
visits Israel later this month.
Bonn has made no secret of its
intentions to sell arms to Saudi
Arabia but German sources have
said privately that the Leopard
tank is not included.

Reagan mentioned human

"deep concern over prisoners of

"Our request is simple and

the Helsinki Accords. Experience
has shown that greater respect
for human rights can contribute
to progress in other areas of the

Israel Dissociates Self From
Visiting Irish Protestants
Israeli government has disa-
ssociated itself from a visit to
Israel by hardline Protestant
leaders from Northern Ireland. A
statement by the Israel Embassy
said that the visit, by five
members of the Rev. Ian
Paisley's Democratic Unionist
Party, including two Members of
Parliament, was "completely
private" and that none of the
meetings they held in Israel were
sanctioned or approved by the
Israeli government.
The statement was made
following claims in Belfast that
the delegation had had "every
cooperation" from the Israeli
The Democratic Unionist Par-
ty said the delegation paid a six-
day visit during which it met
members of the Israeli govern-
ment and opposition and visited
the West Bank. They also toured
the Lebanese border and spoke to
manufacturers of frontier
security equipment which they
thought might be suitable for
preventing terrorists from infil-
trating across the Irish border.
The Israel Embassy here,
which also represents Israeli
interests in the Irish Republic, is
embarrassed by the visit for
political, as well as security
reasons. It said that -Israel
discusses security matters only
with governments and not with
private interests from foreign

also worried that too dose an
