In Chile
Former Senator's Charges
Against Jews Denounced
SANTIAGO (JTA) The Chilean Jewish
community has sharply denounced the charges made by a
former Senator that Jews were responsible for the
economic ruin of the country, the World Jewish Congress
The former Senator, Armando Jaramillo Lyon,
levelled the charge during a radio program called "Open
Dialogue" in which the political situation in the country
was being debated. Remarking on the desperate state of
the economy, he declared:
"Why should we not say that this is due to a plan
implemented by Jews, too, and it is they who, at this
moment, are actively promoting a whole economic process
which has apparently led to the destruction and ex-
termination of our country's economy."
In a swift response, the Comite Representative de las
Entidades Judias de Chile, the representative body of
Chilean Jewry and the WJCongress affiliate here,
published a denunciation of this anti-Jewish in-
citement." The statement was signed by Dr. Werner Apt,
president of the Comite, and Hernan Fischman, secretary -
For Baptist
Jewish Was the Only Way
For Him to Go
Baal Shem Tov, founder of
the Hasidic movement,
once wrote, "The world is
new to us every morning
this is God's gift; and every
man should believe he is
reborn each day."
For Dr. John Davidson,
presently a first-year rabbinic
student at Hebrew Union
College-Jewish Institute of
Religion in Jerusalem, these
words hold special meaning. Born
in Beaumont, Tex., into a family
of pious Baptists, "proud East
Texas mongrel stock whose Bible
began with Matthew and whose
year began at Easter," he ex-
plains, Dr. Davidson is a Jew by
choice whose commitment has led
him into the world of rabbinics at
DR. DAVIDSON remembers a
happy childhood in East Texas.
His father, a mechanical
engineer, and his mother, a home
economics teacher, were both
part-time musicians at their
church. He completed high school
in 1971 as valedictorian. National
Merit Scholar and student body
president, and then entered
Baylor University in Waco, Tex.,
"a city of Baptists, chicken-fried
steak and the Brazos Queen."
It was at Baylor that Dr.
Davidson, a religion major, read
"The Essence of Judaism" and
"This People Israel" by Dr. Leo
Baeck, leader of German Jewry
during the Nazi era, and was
taught by his professors "that
above all else, our task is to
struggle with God." Thus, "this
congenial Baptist began the
transformation into a Jew by
choice," he reveals.
After receiving his BA degree
magna cum laudt, in 1975, Dr.
Davidson moved to Houston to
attend Baylor College of
Medicine. While "delivering 50 or
so babies, assisting at dozens and
dozens of coronary by-passes and
listening to innumerable patients
describe the relentless progress of
their chronic diseases," he also
continued his study of Judaism,
attended services at Congrega-
tion Beth Israel and maried a
"childhood friend of heart and
mind." On November 30, 1979,
following his graduation from
medical school. Dr. Davidson,
together with his wife, formally
converted to Judaism under the
guidance of Rabbi Hyman Judah
Schachtel, a 1931 graduate of
Hebrew Union College, rabbi-
emeritus of Beth Israel.
"HE CAME to me," Rabbi
Schachtel relates, "already
convinced he wanted to become a
Jew. His own search for the
spiritual approach to life and
man's attitude toward God led
him to Judaism."

Fate of Jews in Arab Lands Must Be
Included in Mideast Peace Plans
Israel's socio-economic
problems, including the
ethnic gap between
Sephardic and Ashkenazic
Jews, are to a large degree,
a ramification of the Arab-
Israeli conflict.
The problem can be solved,
therefore, only in the framework
of a comprehensive Middle East
peace settlement that would
include dealing with the problem
of Jews in Arab lands, Jews who
comprise the largest segment of
the Sephardic community in
THIS IS THE view of Heskel
Haddad, an eye surgeon at the
New York Medical college, who is
also a scholar in the field of Arab
Jewish history and the author of
the just-published book, "Jews of
Arab and Islamic Countries"
(Shengold Publishers, New York,
$12.95). He contends that one of
the reasons for the poverty of the
Jews from Arab countries is their
expulsion from Arab countries
shortly after the State of Israel
was established.
"When most Sephardic Jews
immigrated to Israel, in 1949 and
1950, following the decision of the
Arab League to expel the Jews in
retaliation against Israel for the
emergence of Palestinian
refugees, they arived in Israel
penniless because they were
forced to leave all their assets
behind in Arab countries."
Haddad said in an interview with
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
"Their properties were either
confiscated outright, as in Iraq,
or were abandoned when they
received one-way exit visas from
Arab governments, as in
HADDAD. WHO was born in
Iraq 56 years ago, pointed out
that Ashkenazic Jews, who
suffered persecution in Europe
Israeli Adviser Says Arab Mayors
Are Partners in Negotiations
former Israel government
adviser on Arab affairs said
that most of the West Bank
and Gaza Strip Arab
mayors are "partners for
negotiations with Israel"
and shared the realism of
the late Egyptian President
Anwar Sadat.
Prof. Moshe Maoz, one-time
adviser to former Defense
Minister Ezer Weizman. said
that the Arab mayors, who were
democratically elected in 1976,
recognized the need to co-exist
with Israel and did not want to
hand over the leadership of the
territories to the PLO terrorists.
MAOZ, who teaches Middle
East history at the Hebrew
University in Jerusalem, was in
London for the publication of a
book he has written on the Pales-
tinian leadership in the West
Although he claimed the
present Israeli government could
do more to encourage the West
Bank Arab leadership. Maoz
praised the present Defense
Minister, Moshe Arens, for
adopting a "pragmatic and
logical" attitude like that favored
by Weizman and the late Moshe
He contrasted all three men
favorably with former Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon, who he
said had had a "tacit agreement"
with the Jewish militant faction
operating in the territories and
who had wanted to neutralize the
elected Arab leadership.
MAOZ said he was opposed to
the creation of a separate Pales-
tinian state west of the Jordan
River, and that the road to a
peace settlement lay through the
Camp David autonomy agree-
ments and a link between the
territories and Jordan as en-
visaged under President
Reagan's initiative of September,
In his book, Maoz argues that
the Six-Dday War turned the
West Bank into a battleground
between resurgent Palestinian
and Jewish nationalism, whose
result would largely determine
the destiny of the area and the
future character of Israel as a
Jewish State.
under the Nazis, were awarded
reparations from Germany after
the war, while Jews from Arab
lands did not receive reparations
from any Arab government. "The
reparations from Germany were a
contributing factor for the in-
creasing socio-economic gap
between Sephardim and
Ashkenazim in Israel," he said.
Haddad said he believes,
therefore, that "it is imperative
that in any peace negotiations,
the rights of Jews from Arab
countries be a major item on the
agenda of those negotiations,
with particular emphasis on
reparations for lost property and
assets of these Jews. I believe
that this will help to reverse, in
part, the process of induced
poverty in the Sephardic segment
of Israel society."
According to Haddad, the
"trauma" of the expulsion is still
fresh in the minds of almost one
million Jewish refugees from
Arab countries.
HE SAID despite the fact that
Jews in Arab countries were
"second class citizens," most of
them led comfortable lives and
many were well to do. "Despite
all the restrictions againsy them,
as non-Moslems, Jews, generally
speaking, had flourished in Arab
countries," he said. "I want the
Arab world to recognize the
injustice they have done to their
Jews and to understand that as
the Palestinians were victims of
war. we, the Jews of Arab lands,
were victims of persecution," he
Haddad argued that when
Israel was established, the one
million Jews in Arab countries
amounted to two percent of the
total Arab population of 50
million in the Medeast. "It can be
said, therefore, that two percent
of the Mideast belongs to us,"
Haddad declared. He noted that
the size of Israel today is about
30.000 square kilometers, in-
cluding the West Bank and the
Gaza District, while at the time
of their expulsion, the Jews
owned some 100.000 square
koilometers in the Arab world.
believe that the Jews of
Arab lands who live in Israel
today can serve as a bridge to the
Arab world, a bridge to peace,"
Haddid said. "I believe, too, that
Israel must be a part of the
Mideast psychologically and
culturally, before peace with the
Arabs can be obtained.
Egypt Won't Divorce Trade,
Political DifferencesPatt
Minister of Commerce
Gideon Patt has expressed
regret that the Egyptian
government refuses to
divorce trade relations from
its political differences with
Israel. Patt, who has
returned from a three-day
official visit to Cairo,
predicted no early improve-
ment in the ties between
the two countries.
He had attended the opening of
an international trade fair in
Cairo as the guest of Egypt's
Economics Minister, Mustapha
Said. He had lengthy discussions
with Deputy Premier and
Foreign Minister Kamal Hassan
Ah and Minister of State for
Foreign Affairs Butros Ghali, in
addition to his talks with Said.
reject Israel's approach which
would separate trade from
political issues such as the Israeli
presence in Lebanon, the Pales-
tinian autonomy talks, the
boundary dispute at Taba and
other matters that have soured
relations between Jerusalem and
Cairo. Declining trade between
the two countries is directly
related to Egypt's unhappiness
over the state of political
relations. Patt said.
He blamed this "linkage" for

the drop in Israeli exports to
Egypt from $25 million in 1982 to
half that value in 1983. Egyptian
exports to Israel remained static
at $5 million during both years.
According to Patt, the
Egyptians are only harming
themselves. He cited as
"economic absurdities" the fact
that Cairo now imports chicks
from Europe at 55 cents each
whereas it used to buy them from
Israel at 30.6 cents each.
Moreover, up to 40 percent of the
European fowl do not survive the
trip to Egypt. The mortality rate /

much lower, he said.

who tried desperately to avoid an

resigned that he will have to face
the voters at least a year before
Likud's mandate expires in
November, 1965. But he wanted
to postpone the elections as long
as possible to give his govern-
ment a chance to deal effectively
with the economy and the volatile
situation in Lebanon. He lost his
Labor Party Chairman Shimon
Peres felt his chances of un-
seating Likud are best if the
election campaign is short and
free from the internal rancor that
[has split Labor during its years
[ in opposition. Accordingly, he
sought to deflect the challenge
posed to his leadership by former
Premier Yitzhak Rabin. Labor
activists believe this can be
accomplished by summoning
former President Yitzhak Navon
to take a major role in the up-
coming campaign.
The idea is that a Peres-Rabin-
Navon troika can lead Labor to
victory, Navon being immensely
popular with the public. Since he
is Sephardic, he is expected to
appeal to many of the Sephardic
voters who supported Likud in
the 1977 and 1981 elections.
Furthermore, as a close per-
sonal friend of Peres, Navon is
not expected to contest Peres'
leadership of the Labor Party. As
for Rabin, Labor strategists are
confident that if the Alignment,
together with Tami, succeed in
forcing an early summer election
date, he will abandon his rivalry
with Peres, at least for the time
being, so as not to be depicted as
a "spoiler" during what would be
a brief but bitter election cam-
paign against Likud.
NAVON told the newspaper
Yediot Achronot in a telephone
interview that he has not yet
received a call from Labor to
return home. He said, however,
that he would welcome a decision
for early elections. According to
Davar, Navon would be called
home from a visit to the United
States as soon as the Knesset
adopted an early elections bill.
Tami leader Aharon Abu-
Hatzeira, whose surprise an-
nouncement in favor of early
elections touched off the race,
Shamir may be challenged
again by Deputy Premier David
Levy, as he was last September
after Premier Menachem Begin
resigned. At that time the Herut
Central Committee favored
Shamir by a 60-40 percent
margin. Relations between the
two men have been strained ever
WHILE LEVY may have
gained strength in the interim,
most observers believe he could
not seriously threaten Shamir
unless he is joined by former
Defense Minister Ariel Sharon.
But a Levy-Sharon team is
considered remote.
Sharon, presently a Minister-
Without-Portfolio, has made no
secret of his ambition to become
Prime Minister. But even if he
makes a leadership bid on his
own, he is not viewed as a serious
challenge to Shamir.
Meanwhile, a new-old face
entered the picture when former
Defense Minister Ezer Weizman
announced the he would head a
new centrist party in the next
elections. Weizman, who resigned
from Likud over policy dif-
ferences with Begin after the
1961 elections, accompanied his
announcement with a barrage of
criticism against the Likud-led
HE ACCUSED it of failure to
seize the opportunities presented
by the 1979 peace treaty with
Egypt to broaden the peace
process. He linked this with
Israel's economic morass,
contending that proper ex-
ploitation of the peace would
have given Israel vital regional
markets for its exports. At
present the economy is burdened
by a $1 billion foreign trade gap.
Weizman referred to a "team"
working with him to form a new
party but did not divulge their
names. Some observers believe
they include Gen. Mordechai
Hod, a former Air Force com-
mander; Dan Tolkowsky, also a
former Air Force chief and now a
banker; industrialist Avraham
Shavit; and Binyamin Ben-
Eliezer, the coordinator of West
Rank activities.
Weizman himself has been
involved in shipping, automobile
importing and automobile rental
since his retirement. His new
party, if it materializes, is ex-
pected to have a strong business

ment was greeted with derision
from both the left and right. His

war and may establish an op-
position party of his own, called
Weizman an "opportunist."
"Ezer kept his mouth shut, kept
his options open, and sat waiting
for a call from Begin or Shamir to
rejoin the government," he
Political observers predict that
any new centrist party would
make a poor showing in the next
elections. They recalled the
attempt by Yigael Yadin, the
world famous archeologist, whose

seats in the 1977 elections, only
to fall apart and disappear by the
time the next elections were held

leadership on the supposition
that whatever votes it drew

But Laborites who supported the

are believed to be disillusioned
with any attempt to form a new

both the University of Michigan
and Wayne State University Law
Schools, where he served as a

Constitutional Law
Initially we should look at
Israel's system of legal justice
from a constitutional standpoint.
The state adopted no written
constitution, but has developed a
basic theory of human rights
which is administered by its
Supreme Court. No doubt this
adoption of the basic theory of
human rights is a logical out-
growth and necessity in view of
the "Eichmann trial" conducted
in the State of Israel based on a
theory of fundamental human
Only the Israeli Supreme Court
may over-rule acts of Parliament
as violative of basic human rights
or acts of the government; (such

as military administrators in
what are termed by the Israeli
judges administered territories).
The District Court which is the
general trial Court, may not do so
except by precedent from the
Israeli Supreme Court. There is
some variance between the Israeli
unwriteen Constitution and the
English unwritten Constitution
in that the English unwritten
Constitution is based on its
history while the Israeli Con-
stitution is based on the general
philosophic notions and notions
of basic human rights as estab-
lished in law courts and philo-
sophers throughout the world.
Retired Justice Chaim Cohen
of the Israeli Supreme Court set
up the original Israeli legal
system in 1948 as Premier Ben
Gurion's Attorney General. In
this enterprise he had the oc-
casion to visit Justices Hugo
Black and Felix Frankfurter who
gave him, as usual, contrary
advice. Justice Black suggested a
written Constitution aa strict as
possible and Justice Frankfurter
recommended an unwritten
Constitution. In any event,
probably by reason of the then
Premier Ben Gurion's theory that
although there were only 600,000
Jews in Israel in 1948, soon there
would be many millions, and
Israel should not have a Consti-
tution until those millions came.
Thus the first settlers would not
dictate to the later ones. Justice
Cohen was of the opinion that a
Constitution should be enshrined
in the hearts of the citizens and
not on potentially meaningless
piece of paper which could be
At the present time there is
under consideration in the
Knesset (Parliament), a written
Constitution. The draft includes
such language as "the right of
freedom of speech may not be
abridged except as provided by
law," which language Justice
Cohen utilized to verify his
original impression that an
unwritten Constitution was
probably safer.
The Organization of The Courts
Five hundred thousand suits a
year are filed in Israel. Litigants
are reluctant to settle and eager
to sue. There are about 250 state
appointed judges.
The Courts are operated in a
three tier operation. The lowest is
the Magistrate's Court. The
Magistrate's Court hears 250,000
traffic and a substantial number
of misdemeanor and civil suits of
a lower amount than the District
Court. (Those of you who have
driven there may understand the
need for such a high level of
traffic enforcement).
Because of inflation in Israel, I
cannot give precise Shekel limit
as between the drafting of the
article and the reading thereof,
limits would have changed. The
government indexes for inflation
the limits for civil suits.
District Judges are general
trial court judges handling
serious criminal and civil matters
and appeals from Magistrate
Courts. Testimony at District
Court is often not taken down
verbatim. Judges will make sum-
maries of the facts which they
find to exist and those summaries
will be the matters taken up on
appeal to the Supreme Court.
Judges work from 8 to 2 with
joint lunches with their fellow
jurists as in "Old Bailey" and
"Queens Bench" but with consi-
derably less eclat: then from 2 to
8 they work on opinions.
The Supreme Court is sup-
posed to be comprised of 12
members: it handles appeals by
leave from the Magistrate's
Court and from the religious
courts and by right from the
District Court as well as having
original jurisdiction by way of
Quo Warronto Mandamus in
suits against the government.
The appeals are roughly broken
down into three categories; 900
appeals by leave from the
Magistrate's Court: 900 appeals
by right from the District
Courts; and, 900 original
proceedings against the govern-
ment per year for which trials are
provided in the Supreme Court.
Each Supreme Court Judge
has assigned to him or her two
Law Clerks who are recent
graduates of the Law School at
Tel Aviv University. The
Supreme Court Judges, with
whom we discussed these
matters, indicated that they pre-
ferred having two Clerks because
one Clerk might be dominated by
a Judge whereas two Clerks
generally would argue with the
Judge to force the Judge to
justify a decision sometimes
reached in advance of deter-
mining the state of law.
All judges in Israel are
required, during the time that
they are serving, to wear a black
suit, white shirt, black tie for men
and bows for women and black
shoes. During the time that they
are sitting on the Bench they also
wear a black robe. In short, when
you meet a judge in chambers, as
the author has on many oc-
casions, you do not see the usual
sport jacket we see in the United
States or the old school tie you
might see in England.

Jerusalem Post Reporter
Project Renewal is "the most
successful urban rehabilitation
program of our time anywhere in
the world," according to
Professor Daniel Elazar,
president of the Jerusalem Centre
for Public Affairs, who headed an
"independent study" of the joint
government-Diaspora Jewry
slum renewal program.
Elazar, a professor at Bar-Ilan
University, gave this assessment
at a press conference in Jeru-
salem marking the second part of
his centre's study of Project
The good marks that Elazar
gave Project Renewal do not
mean that it is a complete success
or lacks problems. "There are
places where it won't succeed,
but overall, it is successful.
However," he maintained, "most
urban renewal projects around
the world have either been
terrible failures or modest
successes because they didn't
make things worse."
Elazar said that at no time did
government or agency officials
try to pres8usre him to give a
favorable verdict.
The renewal campaign was an-
nounced by then-premier Mena-
chem Begin at a fund-raising
dinner in the Knesset in August,
1977. He described a grand vision
Df rehabilitation of urban neigh-
borhoods "within five years."
The great contribution of
Project Renewal, Elazar ex-
plained, was the new role of
:onsultation and involvement by
Doth Diaspora Jews and by slum
residents. In the past, the
Diaspora givers only donated,
and the residents were told what
was good for them by Israeli
Begin and his advisers initially
intended that the 69 designated
neighborhoods be physically
rehabilitated, but Project
Renewal officials and Diaspora
Jews insisted that social rehabili-
tation be a major part of it
something that made it "success-
ful," said Elazar.
Personal ties between the
mostly-Ashkenazi Diaspora
donors and the mostly-Sephardi
residents became very strong,
closer than those between most
Ashkenazi officials in Israel and
needy Oriental Jews.
Elazar said that the successes
are not necesarily irreversible, if
contacts are not maintained after
financial support by the twinned
Diaspora communities is
stopped. Diaspora communities
will soon phase out maintenance
money tor facilities built in a
number of neighborhoods, but
those social and educational
programs that won't receive
government support are likely to
receive continued funding from
the Diaspora, he said.
Elazar and his team conducted
interviews and studied reports
involving six neighborhoods,
including Ramat Hashikma in
Ramat Gan, Or Yehuda, Netivot,
Ashkelon and the Musrara
quarter of Jerusalem.

Solution Is Repentance
Israel's two chief rabbis have
proposed a solution for the
nation's problems. In advertise-

press, they appealed for special
prayers to end drought, road
accidents and disease.

where the first Jewish settlement
dates back to Roman times.
They marked, among other
things, the 950th anniversary of
the first synagogue in Germany,
an edifice constructed in 1034.
Speakers stressed the need for
Germans to outgrow once and for
all the anti-Semitism that has
ebbed and flowed throughout

Ingeborg Drewitz, a West

A Look At Israel's Judicial System

Court were trained in Israel with
post-graduate training in many
cases elsewhere, whereas the
prior group of Israeli justices of
the Supreme Court primarily
received their training at Oxford,
Cambridge. University of
Chicago, and, on the Continent.
There is no wig used by the
Israelis, either judges or lawyers,
although lawyers also are
required to wear black gowns in
court proceedings. There is no
separate dock as in the English
Common Law and no jury trials
whatever, either in a civil or
criminal nature.
In England the civil jury trial
has been done away with except
in the cases of libel and slander
and also done away with in cases
carrying six months or under
punishment in jail. In Israel there
are no jury trials at all. The
British never introduced the jury
system into the mandated terri-
tory of Palestine, because of the
impression, undoubtedly well
founded, that in that particular
area of the world, it would be
unreasonable to assume that
individuals of one particular sect
would find against members of
their own sect or group in a court
trial involving individuals of

None of the physical plants of
the Courts was particularly
impressive as they are occa-
sionally in the United States and
the State of Michigan and are
almost invariably in England.
For example, the Supreme Court
sits in a building which used to be
a Russian Orthodox Monastery
used by the British during their
mandate as the central court for
the administration of Palestine.
This building is in the so-called
Russian compound in Jerusalem.
The exterior of the building is
pock marked with bullet holes
inflicted both during the time of
the occupation of the British and
the war of 1948. This Court is
extraordinarily ill suited for the
purpose for which it is put,
having a far less impressive
appearance even as far as its
chambers than most inferior
courts in this country. However,
judges of the Israeli Supreme
Court receive double the pay as
those of Cabinet Ministers.
The Law
The law of Israel is nor based
upon Jewish law, although a
majority of the members of the
original state were Jewish and
the State was established to be a
Jewish national homeland. At the
initiation of the state, orthodox
Jewish groups were offended that
any civil authority could under-
take to enforce and interpret
Divine Law. Accordingly, they
vehemently objected, at the time
of the incorporation of the State,
to such law being administered
by civil authority and as a conse-
quence the sources of Israeli law
are diverse indeed.
Israeli law is the English
common law for criminal cases.
The Continental law for civil
cases, and Religious Law of each
religious community for domest ic
cases. There is not such thing as
civil marriage in the State of
Israel and if marriages take place
outside of the religious commu-
nity, it also takes place outside of
the State of Israel, (i.e. the people
take a flight to Cyprus).
The Religious Courts are con-
stituted by individuals who are
not necessarily lawyers. Rabbis
in Israel select the judges for the
Jewish courts, the Moslem select
their own Khadis, and each
Christian sect selects its own
judges. Many cases are decided
by the Religious Courts that
might have also been decided by
civil courts, such as civil suits


S5KS****-- O"

between members of the same
relgious community, where both
parties agree to be bound by the
decision of the Religious Court
rather than a Civil Court. Review
of this system is by leave to the
Supreme Court which merely
determines whether the Religious
Court acted in accordance with
its own regulation.
Selection Process for Judges
It invariably occurs that an
appointment of a Justice to the
Israeli Supreme Court is by
unanimous vote and as a result
the Israeli Supreme Court. When
the author visited, it was three
Justices shy, there having been a
complete turnover of the Justices
within the past five years.
The appointing committee is
made up of two Supreme Court
judges, one District Court judge,
two members elected by the Bar
Association, and four public offi-
cials (generally including the
Attorney General and Minister of
Justice). All of the members of
the committees are lawyers,
although civil officials are not
required to be lawyers.
No judge will be appointed
without the approval of at least
the majority, and the approval of
the two designated members of
the Israeli Supreme Court who.
therefore, have veto power over
the lower courts. The usual
standard is 10 years of private
practice or acting as a professor
prior to being named as a judge
in any of the courts. The appoint-
ment is for life and the indi-
vidual's terms do not come up for
The Educational Process
The primary law school in
Israel is at Tel Aviv University
which is a four year school.
Admission to which is generally
obtained only after two years
service in the military. Once the
individuals graduate from Tel
Aviv University, they are
required to put in two years, one
as an Article Clerk and one of
which must be spent as a trial
attorney under the supervision of
other Counsel. No attorney can
be admitted to practice before
any of the religious courts unless
they are a member of that
religious sect.
A tour of Tel Aviv University
Law School indicated complete
sets of The Michigan Law
Review. Wayne Law Review, and
University of Detroit Law
Journal; one of w hich law reviews
the author was pleased to serve
as Senior Editor.
It's my understanding that
there are 10.000 attorneys in
Israel of which 3.000 are in
governmental practice.
Decision Making Processes
We found that some judges,
such as Judge Steinberg of the
Td Aviv District Court, took a
great deal of pleasure in writing
extensive opinions, laboring over
them as literary efforts in at-
tempting to make sure that he
never said the same thing in
exactly the same way.
The Supreme Court attempts
to operate by consensus much in
the same that our Michigan
Supreme Court does. This is
somewhat different than is
operated on by the legal peers in
The House of Lords in Britain
where separate opinions are
encouraged in order to provide
flexibility in interpretation
should the circumstances change.
In the event of a decision of three
members of the Supreme Court
panel, a review of that decision
can be held by a five party panel
of the Supreme Court of" which
the original three members would
still be sitting. There is some talk
of a reform in that regard.
Overall Impressaoas
One of the most lasting im-
pressions received by the author
concerning the courts operation
was an insight furnished at the
final dinner at the King David
Hotel with Judge Stemberg; who
said that he once had the need to
chastise an attorney who was
being particularly obnoxious by
mentioning that "It is 9:30 in the
morning and I am already tired.
The offending attorney subse-
quently never made a further
appearance on Judge Sternberg s
Court. I cannot imagine circum-
stances where such a gentle
reproof could have brought such
a drastic reaction on the part of
the counsel.
The author can only scratch
the surface of that which was
seen. The most enduring
memories were not my court
experiences, but simple things,
such as the look of the people on
the streets, attendance at the
Western wall on a Friday night a
trip to Yad Vashem where I d'
covered how theremanantsoR.
parents families were disposed oi.^
This last experience, I'm sure
has an especially great impact
upon those of us who are both
Jews and governmental officials.

Mocaust Report
Friday, April 6,1984 / The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 11
.S. Jews Were Faulty in Rescue Efforts
report to the American
Iwish Commission on the
lolocaust, to be released at
beginning of April,
includes that American
/ish organizations were
fulty in in their efforts to
ave the victims of the
lolocaust because they
rere not united.
The author of the report, Prof.
seymour Finger of the Graduate
chool of the City University of
Jew York and the Commision's
[director of research, said in a
|te!ephone interview with the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
|"the American Jewish organ-
isations had relatively little
[power (during the Holocaust in
lEurope) but they did try to save
|the Jews. They tried, but they
vere hampered by a lack of unity.
There was not a sustained unified
effort on the part of the Jewish
organizations to save the Jews of
FINGER AND Rabbi Moshe
sherer, president of Agudah
Israel of America and a member
of the Holocaust Commission,
Jso told the JTA that a story in
the New York Times on the
ort was "incorrect," mainly
ecause it failed to point out that
the report is not the Com-
lission's report but a report
|submitted to it by Finger.
According to Finger, the main
I points of the report are that
["Hitler was the arch criminal
who was responsible for the
Holocaust and that the Allied
governments had the power to do
something to rescue the Jews of
Europe but were unwilling to
divert resources from the war in
order to rescue Jews.''
Finger said that the Jewish
organizations "had more faith in
the willingness of President
Roosevelt and Churchill to give
priority to saving the Jews than
was justified by the events."
HE SAID that, in addition, the
Jewish organizations in America
at that time were "too patriotic"
and were not willing "to break
the law" in order to save the
Jews. "An exception to that was
the Orthodox Jewish
organizations, who gave top
priority to saving the Jews,"
Finger pointed out.
Finger said that members of
the Commission have seen the
report but were not asked "to
approve it or disapprove it."
Sherer said that the report "is
purely the view of the
professional staff of the Com-
mission and not of the Com-
mission members themselves."
Sherer noted that in the report
Finger praises the Orthodox
Jewish organizations for "having
saved significant numbers of
BUT SHERER added that he
does not agree with the overall
conclusions of the report because
Finger "engages in a seasaw
effort to be painstakingly candid
and at the same time protective
about the secular American
Jewish leadership whose poor
performance during the
Holocaust years is J'accuse
against the most prominent
Jewish leaders of that time."
The Commission, an unofficial
grour of 35 prominent American
Jews, was established in Sep-
tember, 1981, to study what the
organized Jewish community did
or failed to do to save European
Jewry during the years 1939-
1945. It was disbanded in
August, 1982, in a flurry of
controversy over an interim
report on the role of the Jewish
community. One Commission
members, Samuel Merlin,
businessman who had survived
the Holocaust and who was the
Commission's principal financial
supporter, withdrew his support,
charging that "the vestiges of the
old establishment" were seeking
to whitewash their role.
Merlin, the director of the
Institute for Mediterranean
Affairs in New York, which
studies events in the Middle East
and World War II, including the
Holocaust, along with a team of
assistants, wrote an opening
draft report that was critical of
the established Jewish com-
munity in the U.S., for failing to
act forcefully and exert sufficient
pressure on the Roosevelt
Administration to increase
immigration quotas for European

Merlin came under fire from
members of the established
Jewish community who were also
members of the Commission and
who sought to have their
respective organizations' names
and precedessors, in some cases,
deleted from the critical report.
When the Commission was
disbanded, Arthur Goldberg, the
Commission's chairman, a former
Supreme Court Justice and U.S.
Ambassador to the United

Sisco Says
Syria Must Have Role in Peace Talks
(JTA) Joseph Sisco, Un-
dersecretary of State for
Political Affairs in the Ford
Administration, said that
in order for the Middle East
peace process to succeed
Syria has to be brought
into the negotiations.
"Over the next two or three or
four years, as you look ahead,
there is going to be a reckoning
between Syria and Israel," he
said in answering questions from
foreign correspondents here. "I
think all of us would agree that it
is far preferable for this reckon-
ing to occur politically rather
than otherwise."

10th Anniversary
On Friday evening, April 6

Boca Raton will hold a special
Sabbath eve service in commem-
oration of the 10th anniversary of

members of the congregation will
be honored during the Sabbath
morning service on Saturday

party and reception will be held
at the congregation on Saturday

chase of 10 acres at Boca Pointe

ditional information, or to make

party and reception, please call

BUT SISCO, noting the
present situation in the Middle
East is "stalemated," said no
progress will be made this year,
and any moves will have to wait
until 1986.
"This is less a function of a
Presidential campaign year in the
United States," he emphasized,
"but much more a reflection of
the erosion that has occurred in
the area generally, plus the fact
that none of the principal actors
on the scene are really in a posi-
tion to make a significant move."
While conceding that the U.S.
has suffered a "setback," in the
Mideast because of Lebanon,
Sisco said he does not view this
as a "permanent enfeeblement of
American policy." He stressed
that there is no substitute for the
"third party role" of the U.S.
because it is indispensable not
only for its diplomatic efforts but
because its military power helps
insure the security of Israel,
Jordan and Saudi Arabia as well
as the Persian Gulf.
"The time will come when
Washington will be pressed once
again, particularly by the Arab
world, to reactivate its diplomacy
in the peace process," Sisco said.
But he urged the U.S. at present
to study the various options
quietly and not make any public
moves unless there is a chance of
success. "The next move has got
to be carefully prepared and its
got to succeed," he declared.
SISCO SAID that the
strategic cooperation agreement
between Israel and the United
States is good but has to be ex-
panded to include not just
military issues but political ones
as well. He urged the need for
resuming the consultations that
once had existed between the
U.S. and Israel over various
political issues.
Sisco noted that under both
Democratic and Republican Ad-
ministrations there existed a
"continuity" in Mideast policy
which included the "American
commitment to the security and
survival" of Israel and the effort
to strengthen relations with "at
least those Arab countries that
are committed to the principle of
live and let live and co-
He pointed out that in Israel
there was also a bi-partisan
foreign policy based on maintain-
ing Jerusalem as its capital and

opposition to a Palestinian state.
He noted that the difference
between the governing Likud and
the opposition Labor Alignment
over negotiations was really
"moot" as long as Jordan refused
to enter negotiations.
While saying that Jerusalem
"must remain united," Sisco said
that the proposed bill in Congress
to move the U.S. Embassy from
Tel Aviv to Jerusalem would not
be "helpful" to the present
HE STRESSED that the
principles outlined in President
Reagan's September 1, 1982
peace initiative are "still relevant
and are going to have to be ad-
dressed." He said the U.S. under
all Administrations has adhered
to the "territory for peace
formula. He said this was the
basis for the Reagan plan, the
Camp David accords, the
Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty and
the three disengagement agree-
ments between Israel and Egypt
and Israel and Syria.
On Syria, Sisco said he had
met with President Hafez Assad
20 to 25 times and believes he is a
strong Syrian nationalist. He
said that while Syria is "depen-
dent" on the Soviet Union, it was
not acting in Lebanon as a
hostage or surrogate for the
USSR but in its own national
But Sisco added that he does
not believe that Syria will be able
to totally dominate Lebanon. He
said the Lebanese "of all prin-
cipal stripes" want to find a
Lebanese solution, and if they do
so and are able to restore
Lebanon's sovereignty over all
its territory, this will require the
"ultimate withdrawal of all
extraneous forces." But Sisco
said he did not believe there
would be any progress in
Lebanon this year, nor would be
the withdrawal of Israeli and
Syrian forces come in 1984.

A Rabbi
Rabbi Nathan Zeluer
The following is brought to- Floridian readers by the South
County Rabbinical Association. If there are topics you would
like our Rabbis to discuss, please submit them to the Floridian.
Man's destinies, in war and in peace, have been fashioned by
these two definitions of bread, running after fleshpots, and
gloating over dominating and enslaving others. Our brethren in
Russia and in Arab countries are, like our forefathers in Egypt,
still victims of this concept. But, at Passover we recall that just
as Egypt's downfall was due to this definition of bread, so will
Russia'8 downfall come in due time.
On Passover we recall the covenant we made with God to
redefine the concept of bread-lachmo to help one another, to
dream and work for a better society and a better life for all
people. Neither the satisfaction of one's flesh, nor the oppressive
drive of the task master, is, according to God's covenant with
Israel, man's purpose on earth, as a coworker with Him.
As a people, we Jews have lived up to this new definition of
bread not the bread of selfishness nor the bread of dominion,
but bread as love of one's fellowman; bread as the concept that
our abundance must be used to elevate the less fortunate, the
hungry and the poor. This Sinaitic concept of bread has, thank
God, been the concept of the Founding Fathers of our country.
American superiority and plenty and strength have been used
not against the less fortunate but for them to feed the
hungry, clothe the naked and elevate them to a higher level life,
in freedom not slavery, in plenty and not in starvation.
When we open the door for Elijah on Passover we invite all
nations of the world to join us in a united attack against want,
hunger and slavery and hasten the day of freedom and
brotherhood. This is the kind of bread we must eat for the
conditions to be ripe for the coming of the Messiah.
The Jewish community throughout the world is now in the
midst of preparation for the Passover, which commemorates the
deliverance of our people from the bondage of Egypt some 3,500
years ago. The historical ideal of freedom is reaffirmed in Torah
readings during the four special Sabbaths prior to Passover, as
well as during the Festival itself, and, especially in the Seder
ceremonials. The Exodus of Israel from the land of Egypt is not
only a reminder of the past, but a reaffirmation of our people's
unshakable confidence in the ultimate redemption of mankind in
the future. On Passover the Jew looks backward and forward
and is inspired by recalling our struggles in the past, to acclaim
the Messianic hope, regardless of the present suffering and
misery. Moses too the Jewish people of Mt. Sinai, where God
gave them the Ten Commandments which remained forever the
Directive for a better future. .
The Hagaddah is replete with many incidents of past
deliverances, but it blends with aspirations for a better future of
complete redemption physical, spiritual and social as well as
economic. "This year we are slaves. .next year in
Jerusalem. .free. .". In other words, on Passover we remember,
but we also hope.
But in the Hagaddah we also read in the opening statement
"This is the lowly bread of affliction which our forefathers
ate.'' The Jewish concept of freedom opens with the Jewish
definition of bread-lachmo.
The rabbis tell us in Midrash Rabbah Shmos 43 that in
Arabia they call "meet" "bread," In other words, according to
this definition, "bread" means "flesh" the fulfillment of one's
desires of the belly to satisfy the cravings of the flesh. The
rabbis also speak of the "bread of empire," the satisfaction for
power and dominion. In other words, they believed that life is
joyous, only when one can oppress others. Yes, to be on the top,
that is to live. This was the belief in ancient Egypt. This is still
the belief in Russia and in other countries dominate by dictators
and oppressors.

Reagan Withdraws Sale to Jordan
(JTA) President
Reagan, bowing to
Congressional opposition,
hs withdrawn his offer to
sell 1,613 Stinger anti-
aircraft missiles to Jordan
and 1,200 to Saudi Arabia.
The announcement was made
by White House spokesman
Larry Speakes. At the State
Department, Department
Deputy spokesman Alan
Romberg said the decision was
made after an "assessment of the
legislative situation" in which
opposition to the mobile ground-
to-air missiles had been in-
Sen. Bob Packwood (R., Ore.)
has gathered 55 signatures on a
letter to Reagan opposing the
sale of the Stingers, more than
half of the Republican controlled
Senate. Sen. Robert Kasten (K ,
Wis.) was planning to add an
amendment rejecting the sale as
part of an appropriations bill. In
the Democratic-controlled House,
Rep. Larry Smith (D., Fla.)
introduced legislation to block
the sale last week.
ROMBERG conceded that the
statements by King Hussein of
Jordan refusing negotiations
with Israel were the catalyst that
insured success to the opponents
of the sale. There has long been
strong opposition in Congress to
providing Hussein with techni-
cally advanced U.S. weapons as
long as Jordan does not enter the
peace process.
Secretary of State George
Shultz hinted as much when he
said at his press conference that
while Reagan had been "ready to
put on a major effort" to get the
Stinger sale approved, "There
was no question about the fact
that King Hussein's statements
constitute a very serious setback
to chances of Congressional
Shultz seemed to also be
hinting that he would like to see
Congress abandon efforts to force
the Administration to move the
U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tf
Aviv to Jerusalem in return for
Administration abandonment of
the Stingers sale. "There are a
Bar Mitzvah
variety of other issues that have
been raised in Congress that have
to do with stability and devel-
opment in the Middle Eaat," he
said. "Particularly the proposal
that the U.S. Embassy should be
moved to Jerusalem."
could not "predict" what the
effect would be of the President's
decision on the Stingers. But
efforts were continuing in both
the House and Senate today to
gather co-sponsors for the bills

Jordan because the two wen
linked to Congress. He said the
U.S. is committed to the security
of the two countries and will take
"appropriate steps" to ensure it.
Speakes said that Reagan
would continue to seek $220
million to equip two Jordanian
brigades for deployment force.
